The Price of Rats. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 March 1891

THE curse from tfhich the Pied Piper relieved the ungrateful little Bruna wick townhas descended on our farms, and the reason is no secret to those who ha^e made a study of the subject. If the wheat ricks are plundered by countless swarms of rats and mice the explanation is to be found in the thoughtless destruction of those numerous birds of the hawk family once so common, now so rare in these islands. Three pence a piece is (he prico which our farmers are reported to he paying for dead ratsand mice in some parts vrhere the plague is fiercest. As the average number destroyed by a single kestrel during his stay is es timated by that high authority, Mr. MacGillivray, at ten thousand, it follows that robust and intelligent kestrels -if our sportsman had only left us any-might now be picking up in this way their 125Z. a year, even allowing for times when a feast of insects is regarded by these inde fatigable mouse and rat killers as an agreeable change.

NEW ZEALAND. Auckland, Marcli 15. I The STew Zealand Seraid opposes Sir George Grey's contention, made in Lis recent speech at the Federal Convention for the ; election of a Governor for Australian colonies. The journal ears that the iin- ; mediate sequel to such "would only be the total dissolution of the connection between the colonies and Great Britain. If the colonies were so independent as to require elected Governors, our Legislatures might pass laws in opposition to the plainest treaty obligations without check or without notice to the home Government. THOSE who prefer to conduct their own law business, and all who are concerned in the work of the amateur lawyers, should ba careful lest trouble unknown may light upon them. During a case in the Small Debts Court last Thursday, a document relating to the piyraent and delivery of certain goods: and cattle was put- in as evidence.

SECRETARIES' REPORTS. A 3. Fisher reports a® follows for the week ending Friday, 13th Marcb: Since last report business has been rather flat, and transactions fewer than hitherto. A little business lias been done in Victory, Brilliant and tt. George United, and Brilliant Blocks. The two latter stocks are somewhat easier, but I am of opinion the decline is but temporary, as the shafts of both mines are now attaining considerable depth. The Brilliant United shaft was down 844ft. on Tuesdav last, and the Block shaft 950ft. The former is expected to bottom at or about 936ft from the surface; and the Block at about 1150 to 1200ft. During the week the main reef has been struck in the lower crosscut Of the Brilliant, proving now that the two reefs passed through were simply droppers from the main reef. This reef at present is over 2ft thick, but they have nbt. got the hangine wall. So far as can be seen at present, the Block shaft will get the reef, providing it lives to the depth, and th ...
