Literary and Debating.-Abont a dozen members were present on Friday ; Mr. Thorne in the chair. The following papers were read and discussed-"Who pays the duty?" This caused considerable amusement, but owing to its length and the late hour, it was not discussed at any length. "Restriction of Civil Servants from taking any active part in public matters." This paper caused a deal of discussion, in which most of the members took part. " The motive power of the future," which speculated on the possibility of sound becoming the motive power, consequent to recent experiments by Parisian scientists, was a very able article, but was not well discussed. Mr. W. Davies acted as Journal Editor, in the absence of Mr. Stack. To Correspondent.-"Griffiths Valuation" : Tour letter held over to next issue for want of space.

Mr. Epson's Weather Predictions. An Approaching Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 8 October 1889

Mr. Epson's Weather Predictions.! An Approaching Drought. - i MB. EGESON, assistant to the Government Astrono- mer, writes :-After every excessively wet year follows a drought as a reaction, and the intensity of the drought varies with the previous excess over the mean cyclical grade, as shown in my " Weather System ;" consequently, from the operation of the two causes, results three years' drought, which in this case may be expected to extend from the middle of 1890 to the middle of 1893 or so, to correspond with the drought of 1827-29. The drought of 1837-39 was caused by the same opera- tions, and which, I have no doubt, can be ascribed to the influence of solar changes. As additional evidence to show that there has of late years been an acceleration of two years, I would refer to page 44 of my " Weather System," where it will be seen that the high barometer which is not due till 1890 occurred in 1888. The climatological conditions which bring about these changes I hope to be abl...

Bellinger River. SATURDAY. AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION.-A special general meeting of the above Association was held at Tyson's hotel, Fernmount, on Saturday, 21st inst., to decide the vexed question of Presidency. About 100 persons were present, and considerable excite- ment was evinced, both candidates (Messrs. Mat- thews and Black) having a large following, and each confident of victory. Mr. Hector M'lvenzie, vice-President, was voted to the chair. Mr. Black addressed the meeting in a forcible speech, urging his claims to the Presidency. He was followed by Mr. Matthews, who, in a pithy and telling speech, successfully combated his opponent's arguments, after which, on a ballot being taken, it was found that Mr. Matthews still'reiained the confidence of the Association, having gained a most marked majority of 18 votes ; the result of the ballot being Black twenty-seven; Matthews forty-five, which announcement was received with evident satisfac- tion and much applause.

Parliament.-In the Assembly on Friday evening, among the postponed items' passed, was one of £10,000 as a further sum for relief works for the unemployed. The item of " £225 remunera- tion to Mr. David Houison," was also passed. The item "Expenses in connection with the Casual labor Board Inquiry Commission, £4611 5s lld," caused considerable discussion. One of the principal items of this account was that of £1228 10s, for Mr. A. J. Cape, president of the commission, who charged for 117 days at £10 103 per- day. lt was stated that 10 guineas was rather a stiff sum to charge, and that aa the Commission had only sat about half that number of days at the outside, it wastjiGt quite clear how he managed to make such a charge. Mr. Waddell moved that the item be reduced by £1401 15s, and on a division being taken the Opposition won its point by 35 to 10. Mr. Dibbs.-aesured the Ministry that the Opposition would .expose their " looting, of the Treasury" tliroughont the length and breadth of...

[ Lower Clarence. 1 MACLEAN,. MONDAY MORNING, I Jjecture.-On Thursday evening last a lecture was delivered in the Presbyterian Chnroh, Maclean, by the Rev. J. Paterson, which was fairly well attended. The subject wa« a broad one, embracing au account of travels over the various continents p in fact, there was in it, if properly treated, food for a dozen lectures. From this remark it must not be inferred that the subject in this case waa not properly treated, but that it was generalized considerably. School Of Arts.-The regular monthly Com- mittee meeting was held on Friday night last. Present-Messrs. D. See, T. Lamy, F.J. Nicholls, J. Boden, F. Schwonberg, F. Wilkinson and the Secretary (G. A.

The Sugar Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 8 October 1889

The Sugar Industry. SPEAKING at the Protection Conference, in Sydney, Mr. Ewing, MP. said a few days ago the Minister for Public Instruction made a statement, from which it would appear that it was the special duty of all Free-traders to ruin and strangle the sugar industry. He found that in 1877 the number of people employed in the sugar industry, in mills and refineries, was 1065. In 1887 it was 2646. In 1877 there were 6755a. under cultivation, and there were in 1887,15,117 acres. In 1877 there were 93,960cwt of sugar made, and in 1888 there were 275,000cwt. made. At any rate chere had been a great improvement in that. But Mr. Carruthers went on to say this:-"In connection with the sugar industry, 2616 men were employed in mills which were only worked half-time, or 1323 men who worked full time for full wages. In addition to that 220 were occupied all the year round in the sugar refining industry. The duties collected were £80,000. The duties paid by manufacturers were £125,000, ...

Changes in the Moon. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 8 October 1889

Changes in the Moon. MB. RUSSELL, Government Astronomer, writes : This is the first evening that the portion of the moon said to be undergoing change has been visible ; the cloudy weather at first, and then the new moon, prevented observations. Last evening (Monday) the san rose on Plinins, bat the part in question was still in shadow when the moon set. This afternoon, at 4 p.m., I looked at the moon, and saw indistinctly, owing to the sunlight, two new central craters. At 6 p.m. the sunlight had so far faded that it was possible to see the changes very distinctly with magnifying powers up to ICM). I tried 800, which should have shown more details, but the air, though clear, was not steady enough for such a power. The best drawing and description of Plinius makes it 32 miles in diameter, without inside craters, but instead two well-defined central moun- tains. Nasmyth's beautiful photo of his model of the moon shows the same formation that ; is, two conspicuous central mountains and...

Two Other Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 8 October 1889

Two Other Opinions. With regard to Mr. Egeson's prediction of a three years' drought, Mr. Ellery, Government Astronomer, at the Melbourne Observatory, speak- ing of the prediction, says there ia nothing in it. Mr. Egeson, he states, is a young man, who has during the past three or four years, studied meteor- ology, and imagines that he can trace ont the rela- tion between the son-spot periods and the periods of drought in Australia, especially in New South Wales. On that basis he has been predicting the weather for some time past. The supposed rela- tion between the sun-spot periods and the weather has, Mr. Ellery says, been taken up from time to time for a great many years past by different people, and its failure seems to be pretty well established now by the best authorities. It could scarcely be otherwise, because, in Mr. Ellery's opinion, if the sun-spot periods had any regular '? influence upon the weather over the earth's sur- face, the influence would probably be similar in ...

Difficulties and Errors.-The sub-leader iu Tuesday's Examiner referring to the action of certain members of the Lawrence District Improve- ment Board has been generally read and freely commented upon. The Editor, no doubt, put an exceptionaUy pertinent question to the Secretary, Treasurer and Chairman of the late Progress Asso- ciation when he asked if, in the event of them being elected to some other position upon the Board of management in the present organisation than that which they now occupy, would they then have chosen to set at defiance the resolution from the late members of the Progress Association, and a subsequent resolution from their colleagues, the members of the Board ? Perhaps the question will never be answered ; suchpointedoncsseldomare.

Letters to the Editor. I THE Editor does not bold himself responsible for opinions , . npressed hy correspondents. ' 5' " ' How Some People get Rich. I SIE -Allow me to draw your and the public atten . tion to the way the Commissioners of Fisheries lease the oyster beds on this and other rivers. At one time, not many years ago, the oyster beds on this river, and I suppose on other rivers, the Gov- ernment used to put the oyster beds np to public auction, and they always brought a good price. But now they are leased to parties who only give £1 for every hundred yards along the shore, and half way across the river or creek, as the case may be ; whereas, if these beds were put np to public auction, they would fetch £50 or more, likely £100 per hundred yards of good beds. Bat no, the country gets eachered out of some thousands of pounds a year, that goes into the pockets of parties that I and others Bay should not so benefit. For the leesBee of these oyster beda never made the beds or c...
