Hie Intercolonial Exhibition. THE ninth Metropolitan Intercolonial Exhi- bition of New South "Wales, was formally opened at noont his day (Tuesday 10th April,) by His Excellency Sir Hercules Robinson. In point of numbers, extent, brillancy, and novelty of exhibits, the Exhibition of 1877 far surpassed any previous exhibition. The weatner was all that could be desired-clear, and gloriously fine. At ten o'clock the gates were thrown open, and up to noon one continual stream of people'poured, through the gates. The ladies toilettes were unusually brilliant, and added considerably' to the appearance of the lawns ?of Prince Alfred Park. There was, as was tobe expected, a very large attendance "of tho public. From 10 'o'olock in tho forenoon, when tho gates were opened to ticket-holders, people began to flock in in great numbers, until, by noon, Bevenil thousand persons had passed through the gates. The majority, of course, entered tho building, the only attraction outside being the agric...
Floods and Droughts. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 21 April 1877
Floods and Droughts. Ik reviewing the seasons of 1876, ?and the 1 meteorological results, the Saturday ' Review ' observes, in reference to floods and droughts .; '-" Up to -a certain point, the cure for floods is also the t:ure for drought. It is plain that we cannot-abolish our system of agricultural drainage. The water must continue to be removed from the land. But the whole of it need not, as now-, bo carried efl" into the rivers, and thence into sea. It would be possible to store a great deal of it in tanks( where it would be available foi' future use. "For farm purposes rain-water thus kept would bo ns good as spring-water, if not better. It would not be equally suited for human consumption ; but, if wc consider what sort of water is aotually consumed by a great number of persons, we shall not be disposed to insist very strongly on tho im- purity of rain-water. In villages it is usually impossible¡ before analysis, to feel any certainty that a given well is not polluted by sew...

Ci osado in favor ol' thc Claimant. THE Executive of the , Magna Charta' Asso- ciation have issued a proclamation, signed by Dr. Kenealy; M.P., condemning the course adopted by Mr. De Morgan in threatening to raise 100,000, men ,from all parts of the .kingdom and march at their head to the House of Commons, to demand the release of the Claimant from Dartmoor. The procla- mation states that the proposition is illegal and dangerous, and that it was by a similar demonstration in the last icentury that the Gordon Mots. were inaugurated, in which riots London was sacked by a disorderly mob, the gaol of Newgate,'thrown open, and lives und- property to a iarge extent sacrificed. All .Magna Charta Societies are therefore 'enjoined to take no part in the proceedings. Mi'. 'De Morgan, who is travelling from the country on a lecturing tollu, said in.

I think they fully intend to have one this time. I &nbsp; am surprised they have not had one before &nbsp; this, considering there are so many in this locality belonging to that faith; but better &nbsp; late than never. Tho Council of Education have called for tenders for the erection of School House and Teacher's residence, which, when complete, will be quite an ornament to this township. It therefore behoves the parents in this &nbsp; locality to send their children to school, as it will be very unfair on their part not to send them when the Council of Education offers such inducements for education; ...
