OUT ORARA WAY. £from odr own correspondent.] It is a wondor tlmt something is not done to better the road from tlio Coff's Harbor jetty to the cross' roads ; it is very bad, and the least rrtiii tnnkes it very boggy in places; Although the furmors say thiit rriin is wanted now for grass, everything iri tho way of vegetation or foliage in the dis trict looks well. Sinco writing last, the West Branch road lias been opened ns far as McLcod's, and will bo a very convenient route for tho Upper Oraraites on their way to Coramba or Upper Bucca. In the lino of scenery tho road is as good as some of the roads at lllawarra — for instance, Westmacott Pass and the old Bulli Pass — although the gradients aro less.

A TEACHER MISSING. Mr. J. J. Kemp, who had for some time been relieving teacher at Palmer's Island, in the Clarence district, is reported missing.

THE ADVANCE ORARA MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Raleigh Sun — 19 August 1898
THE ADVANCE ORARA MINE. The Advance Orara Company — compris- ing Messrs. W. Robinson, R. Collopy, J. Lindbery, and Walter Rudder — have just put through their battery at Upper Orara a: other parcel of 29 tons of stone, and tne result is the most satisfactory yet obtained from the Advance Orara Mine. We saw the bar of smelted nold. which weighed 1 1 117.3.. and was taken from the 70ft. level. The Company's plenishings from time to time yielded 2dwts. per ton,4dwts. (surface stone), Sdwts. (about 25 feet), Gdwts. (10 feet), 7dwts. to 7Jdwts. (down to the 73 feet level.) This Company lias been working since last September, and that too under great difficul ties, the greatest being the amount of surface water, consequent upon the heavy rains which have fallen there. The battery also gave a deal of trouble, and the Company has gone to heavy expense to put it in working order, nnd before putting more stone through will be compelled to expend still more money on it. This last crushing, the...

Local Interest. NAMBUCCA HEADS. Influenza has been very prevalent here lately, and a large number of men have been laid up with it. Quarrymen seem to have been specially visited by the complaint, and work at the training wall has been consider ably affected by it. Threatened opposition by Mr. Buckle has livened up the N.C.S.N.

Parliament was officially opened again this week, with the usual fanfaronade. The Governor's speed), that miserable string of promises necessitated by the system of party government, was read in the same listless way as of old. Even the federation question failed to make tlio ' speech ' nmeh more interestinsr than the ordinary rigmarolo with which each successive parliament begins its work. The Governor's speech is merely the government's speech ; and in this case it is probably the speech of the Daily Telegraph and J. H. Want and G. H. Reid and the Sydney merchant ring. When the elections of July 27 sent the Rkid-W AUT-Telegraph crowd baclcin a seriously maimed condition the Barton-Lyne party joyfully dreamed of an early return to power. The Barton party, at the elections, scored 25,000 more votos than tlio Reid party, and 8000 more than the Reid party and the Labor party combined. Therefore the people who abhor Reid hopsd to see him shunted early, in favor of Lyne or of Barton, bu...
