Yass. Wednesday.

The Bridge was formally opened yesterday, and named after Hamilton Hume, the Australian explorer, by Mrs. Allman. Over one thousand persons were present, with three hundred school children.

The weather was gusty, but fair, during the ceremony. A luncheon took place at 1 p.m.; between forty and fifty were present, and there was a ball in the evening, attended by nearly two hundred. All passed off well.
