Details:We are sorry to learn, that the Major has not succeeded in attaining the object of his expedition. His return is expected today. The streams the Major fell in with do not run to the North West, but into the Darling. The natives were hostile. They killed two of the Major's party and plundered his stores. In the month of November last, the Major left Sydney, and accompanied by a sufficient number of assistants, proceeded on his long and precarious journey. At Segenhoe the estate of Mr. Sempill, he received from the latter gentleman the loan of a very useful man of the name of Bombelli, who went along with the party and in three or four weeks returned to Segenhoe, on his way to Darlington with despatches for the Government. In returning from the Major, Bombelli met with Mr. Surveyor Finch who was going to the appointed depot with a ton of flour. Having delivered his despatches at Sydney, and returned to Segenhoe, Mr. Sempill immediately forwarded him on. After travelling one hundred and fifty miles, he overtook Mr. finch and party, who were greatly in want of water. Mr. F. having a day or two before passed a place where water was plentiful and it being only about nine miles behind them, determined on going back to it for a supply, leaving Bomelli and the bullock driver in charge of the drays. Early on the following morning Mr. Finch returned when to his indiscribable horror he found them both stretched on the ground, mangled corpses, having been murdered by the Blacks, who had decamped with the whole of his flour. Mr. Finch hurried with all possible speed after Major Mitchell whom he overtook far in the interior
