GREAT MILITARY DEMONSTRATIVE The Government has resolved that the Gueen's Birthday shall this year be marked by what, all things being favourable, must prove to be the greatest and most imposing Military display which this country has ever witnessed. A- strong endeavour will be made to parade all the available troops of New South Wales on that day before the Governor. Some difficulty may be experi enced in effecting this object, but that dif ficulty, it is resolved, shall be overcome. It is not considered that Moore Park (the only available ground in the immediate vic inity of the city) is sufficiently extensive to permit of the necessary man.Geuvr.es taking place there. The whole question is now under the consideration of the military authorities, and, when a suitable locality has been fixed more extended details to the contemplated proceedings will be forth coming. It is stated that Samoa is to be proclaimed a crown colony. Between July 3882, and March 1884, the Egyptain campaign ...
