AK'D SWAi HILLr GAZETTE. PU rLIsIED WEEKLT. KERANG, DECEMBER 6, 1878. ANNUAL BALANCE SHEET. THE balance sheet of the Shire Council, as laid before that body at the annual meetingonMondaylast,maybe considered a satisfactory one. A glance at theamount of work entered into and executed, will show that the councillors have not been idle, and that the works carried out have been scattered over a large portion of the Shire. To' arrive at these conclusions more easily, a new feature has been em bodied in the balance sheet, viz, an analysis of works. This gives to a yard of earthwork, or to a toot of bridge work, that has been completed-not' only in the whole Shire, but in each separate riding as well. There has been no less than 120 miles of clearing performed to open up new roads-a highly necessary work-a considerable portion -of it being through malice country. Then we find that enbank ments to the amount of nearly 50,000 yards have been made, while 17 cul verts, amounting in the aggrega...

NEW ZEALAND "NEWS. By the s.s. Arawata we are in receipt of New Zealand intelligence to the 22nd in stant. The following is a summary of the news:-= SThe Hon. Colonel Whitmore has ex plained the intention of the Government in regard to defences. They intended, he said, to protect the principal harbours of the colony by very powerful cannon-so power ful that no vessel, however heavily armored, could stand being struck from them two or three times. It would be too expensive to maintain a permanent defence force, but what he hoped to see done was to keep a perIL:Lnent stiff to care for the heavy guns, to keep off intruders, and to protect the guns and ammunition fkept with them. Ilis idea was to trust to the volunteers, who of course would be put on pay when called ou0 for such service. The Government had determined to consult the highest authority on the subject, in the colonies, and as soon as the guns arrived, or were known to be near, the services of Colonel Scratchley would be, wi...

The news from India is conflicting, and the proper policy to be adopted towards the Ameer occasions con siderable discussion. Lord Lawrence and Sir John Adye deprecate hostilities, and urge conciliatory measures. Sir James Stephen, Sir Bartle Frere, and Major-gene ral Havelock condemn the policy of inacti vity so long pursued by the Indian Go vernment. There are demands for the pro duction of the papers showing the past ne gotiations with the Ameer, especially the mission of Sir Lewis Pelly, promised byj the Government list August, and the sub stance of Slihere Ali's reply, sent by the Viceroy's native envoy.
