Myall River. (From our own Correspondent) We are having some very dry weather here for some weeks past, al- ? though several heavy thunderstorms passed over the locality, the ram wa» too heavy and of too shoit duiation, and did not prove very beneficial to the crops.

The wind blew a hurri cane and did a deal of damage to the ? ^ maize crops, which, by the way, have ? - been looking remarkably well, in fact, much better than we have seen here for some years. * A fire broke out ou Tuesday night & last, in an unoccupied dwelling situated in Bullahdelah, and owned by Mr R Quayle.

'Later. Mr Copeland Resisrns. The Minister for Lands has resigned after fully considering the whole mat ter. Mr Copeland called on the Premier J an intimated his .intention of resigning his portfolio, which he has held since the formation of the present Govern ment in October, 1891. The resignation was accepted. . When the House meets to-night a statement will be made. Mr Copeland himself will more fully explain the view he takes of the posi tion, and the reasons which induced him to decide to leave the Govern ment. Tiier# is great excitement in politi cal circles, and things are unsettled. A crowded meeting of the anti humbug league was held at Waterloo, the object of the league being to com pel the Government to provide work at curront wagos ; every adult em ployed to bo paid not less than 7s per day, male j female, 5s.

A Scene in the House. A PUGNACIOUS MINISTER. SYDNEY, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 19 January 1894
A Scene in the House. A PUGNACIOUS MINISTER, SYDNEY, Thursday. The address-in-reply has been adop ted in the Legislative Council. In the Assembly it was moved by Mr Manning and seconded by Mr Morgan. Reid male a long speech and con cluded by moving an amendment em bodying an expression of opinion that the conduct of Ministers in advising the Governor to prorogue Parliament in the midst of an important session -was utterly unjustifiable and censur able. Sir George Dibbs followed with a scathing speech, affirming the simple question whether more time was to be wasted, whether the starving people asking for bread should be given a stone, or whether they would debate the question as to whether the Con stitution had been outragpd or not. He waa vei-y hot on Reid aud Parkes, concluding with the remark that the country objected to be governed by buffoons. Sir Henry Parkes followed, and de nounced the conduct of the Ministers on high constitutional and historical grounds. Mr Copeland follow...
PARLIAMENT AND THE LAND. to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 19 January 1894
PARLIAMENT AND THE LAND. to the Editor. Sir, — It is noticeable that amid the multitude of election addresses now being delivered, very few allusions to the land question are to be found, al though it is one- of vital importance to' the colony. There is a good deal said about throwing the whole burden of taxation on the land, but very little olirvnf. m/lnnirio' n onnl a oAfflo /in 4-lia land, or encouraging those already in occupation by lease or purchase,' to persevere in the work of developing the pastoral and agricultural indus tries. In South Australia the results of neglect or improper- treatment of the land question is shown in the utter prostration of the pastoral industry. The pastoralists, instead of being as sisted in their struggle against the difficulties of soil and climate, have simply been driven to throw up the sponge, and abandon the conflict. What lias Been done in South Austra lia is sought to be done in New South Wales. On the pretence that it is sought to encour...

.Correspondence. it must bo distinctly undoratood that.wc do not hold ouraolvos rosponsiblo for tho opinions cxproadud by our corroepondentQ SANITABY CONDITION OF THE TOWN. . jlu xae j&aitor. Sir, — The sanitary condition of the town was to have been the first con. sideriition of all the aldermen at the time of their election. I do not think there has been one word spoken about this matter in all the Council's delibera tions,, and for what reason I do not know, ns there is the same urgent ne cessity for astringent by-law so as to preserve the health of the general public. If you ask any of the alder men why this or other necessary mat ters have not been attended to, they will simply tell you that they have not been able to get the by-liHVs into work ing order, but why have the by-laws not been fixed up ere this ? Echo answers why ? Perhaps the -Council are too busy in getting the streets in repair — which is very good in its way — -but perhaps they are trying to do the stree...

A Good Time Coming. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 23 January 1894
A Good Time Coming. I a contributor in a contemp : orary writes as follows: — 'A happy and a prosperous New Year to all. Most of us would bear with a little more happiness than has fallen to our Jot of late, and a slight increase of prosDeritv would'nt hurt us either. It has been smartly said that when viewed through the financial telescope. Australia appears to be bounded on three sides by a debt of ,£3 17,000,000 odd, arid on the fourth by the Day of- Judgement. All the same, however, the clouds are lifting and far brighter days are about to dawn. 'This is no idle . statement. Politicians give us all that is. required in that line. TlisPress must confine iJself to facts, for as, the patent medicine ads. have it, the people want proof, and this is particularly true of all public assertions made to day, before those assertions can can carry any worth. Proof of my statement respecting the dawn ot better days is shown by the fact that during the past week I have seen letters written b...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 23 January 1894
Political. — Never in our political history has there been displayed such a reckless, and insatiable hunger for place and power, than the exhibition of lieid and party in their attack upon ' the present Ministry. Parliament can not Inst more than a few months, when it will be dissolved by effluxion of time, and then both parties can have a fair ? ? jUjd straightout appeal to the country. But until the machinery of the new Electoral Act is put into force and supplies passed it would be nothing short of a calamity to bring about a dissolution. Although Sir Henry Parkes talks gi! Iv of those who voted for the Ministry as being traitors to ?to the constitution, if we mistake not the country will aliinn that those who attempted to oust tliein in such a cri tical tune, are the traitors to the best interests of the colony. Hut the little game of lieid and Co. is easily seen through. They wished to gain the Treasury benches, so that they, could manipulate affairs at the general elec tion. W...

Passing Notes. Sir Goorgo Dibba believes in good luck, and leans hard upon it too. And tho astonishing thing is that it never flcem? to desert him.
