. Charles JReade. 1 There was really nothing difficult of com- ; prehension, in Charles Eeatle'a nature.

His. most striking cbaracteratiu was ; an.: utter inability ; to . conceal hia emotions, or restrain; himself from the. com- mission of any act to which these emotions promoted him.

General Election. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 11 May 1894
General Election. The Premier thinks that in all probability Parliament will be dissolved about the middle of June; that is, about five or. six weeks hence. Ample opportunity will be given to pass the pending legislation between this time and the close of the session, and he is in hopes that this will take place before the close of the present month, though that of course depends upon the ex pedition with which work is proceeded with. The four principal measures are the Mining on Private Lands and Noxious Trades Bills now before the Council, and the Betterment Bill and Electoral Bill before the Assembly The Premier hopes to make substantial progress with the Betterment Bill, and possibly to get forward a stage with the Electoral Bill. It is not intended to propose any alteration of the bill which is now in committee.

Beach Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 11 May 1894
Beach Mining. Attention has lately been directed to the increased mining operations which aro taking place on the beach of the northern const, with good results to those employed. Hithorto, how ever, the Manning River beach has been neglected— but it is now under going a test at the hands of three or four nartinn. and ho fnr linn irivon nr. cellent results. Our representative has visited the workings at the Old Bar, and from the particulars given below it would appear that a lucrative new local industry is likoly to spring up. Messrs J. Cameron and Shubert, and another man known as Harry Bis marck, who is on his own nccount; have been working for some little time past at Graham's Creek, near tho Old Bar, prospecting for gold, and the latter states that he is making from 7s to 8s a daj. These men only have rude ap pliances — the latter working with a perforated.box having a false bottom, and Messrs Cameron and Shubert with a sluice-box and a copper plate 6 feet long by about 2 feet w...

Miscellaneous Pars. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 11 May 1894
Miscellaneous Pars The ' Tamworth News ' puts the political position thus : — ' The Legis lative Assembly without Sir George Dibbs nould be wanting in one of the most prominent representative men the colony can boast of. Let it be Tamworth's pride and glory to link its name witn tne political rortunes or a man whose name will be handed down to posterity as one of the best and boldest of her statesmen.' Her Bebel, the German Socialist leader, says that Kaiser's Bill's gigan tic military system is a greater menace and curse to Germany than to France, on account of the taxation it involves crushing the industrial vitality of the nation. «] There isftonsiderable distress among unemployed in New Zealand. Typhoid fever in Victoria is abating, but diphtheria is becoming more pre valent. Samples of beach sand from the mouths of the northern rivers ore again reported to show good results in tests for gold.

THE LAND BELONGS TO ALL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 11 May 1894
THE LAND BELONGS TO ALL. j To the Editor. Sir, — The assertion that the 'land belongs to the people has been fre queitly raised, but rather in . the— in- terests of .a class than of the general community. The land may belong to everybody, but everybody cannot go upon the land; honce in dealing with the lands of the Btate the main con sideration should be to secure the greatest possible advantage, not to those who may leaBe or purchase lands but to the Btate, that is, the general community. Hitherto, the land ques tion has been discussed as if there were only two parties— squatters and selectors — concerned ; but, as a mat ter of fact, the disposal of the state lands is a question which affects every member of the community. In pre paring legislation on the subject, the Government has no right to study the interests of either selector or squatter in preference to those of the community, and if this fact were steadily borne in mind, our land sys tem would be found more equitable and s...

"The New Arcadia." AN AUSTRALIAN STORY, by the REV. HORACE F. TUCKER (George Robertson & Co., Melbourne). [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 11 May 1894
' The JSTew Arcadia.' An Australian Stoby, by the Rev. Hobace F. Tucker (George Robertson & Co., Melbourne). TiiEnE is a growing tendency in these times to use the novel as a means of inculcating some truth or illustrating^ a, boo ial or political development. 'The Neiv Arcadia ' is the village settle: ment 'writ large.' The author is widely known as the founder of such settlements in Victoria. From preach ing and lecturing and working ener getically in the interest of Buch social movements, it is not a very far cry to illustrating their potentialities in fic tion. At once an enthusiast and an expert, the author has succeeded in avoiding the didactic and the forensic to an extent that speaks volumes for his self-restraint ; his work is conse quently not open to many of the ob jections generally urged against the story with a purpose. The book pre sents us with some life-like scenes in the Australian bush, and with sensa tions enough to satisfy the taste of the confirmed nove...
