t J,j ? ; ? % The Gravel Case. Wn.vr appears to be a very unjust case came on for hearing beforo the local Bench on Tuesday last. ' Some time ago the Municipal Council applied to have ft certain portion of laud, in Port Macquarie West, set apart as a reserve for the purpose of digging gravel. In reply they received a le.ttor stating that this could not be done, as the land applied for had alre'ady been dedi:ated as a camping reserve, and, in accordance with the 71st clause of the Timber, State Forest, and Quarry Regula tions, no person is 'permitted to dig for gravel on any lands dedicated for public purposes. The Minister for Lands, however, conceded them the right to dig-on such jands, provided each man so digging held a license, and that the excavations made wcre'-eithcr tilled up or fencod. Prior to receiving this letter the Council, thinking that their request would be granted, and 'acting under the provisions of the II 9th clause of .the Municipalities Act, which says ' Any Co...

Smallest Sckews j.v the World.— The smallest screws iu the world are made in an American watch factory. They are cut from steel wire by inachiub ; but us the chips foil down from the knife it looks as if the operative was simply cutting up t'je wire for fun. The fourth jewel-nbcel screw is the next thing to being invisible, and to the naked eye it looks like dust. With a glass, however, it is sceu to be a small screw, with 2U0 tlirciuls to the inch ; and with a very line glass the threads may be seen very clearly. These little screws arc 4-lO0th of an inch in diameter ; and the beads are double the size It IB estimated that a. lady's ordinary thimble would bold 100,000 of these tiny little screws. About 1,000,000 of them nre made a month ; but ao attempt is ever made to count them. In determining the number 100 of them are placed ou a very delicate balance ; and the number of the whole amount is deter.niued by the weight of these.

Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 22 September 1888

Local and General ITews. Mr. John See, M.P.— At Fernmount MK See was entertained at a banquet at which a large number of gentlemen sat down ; and in reply to the toast of ' Our Guest,' he said that next to the railways, the rivers of the country demanded the first care and atten tion of the Government. If the northern rivers were iu Victoria, there would be Sft or' 10ft of water at their entrances, and the facilities for navigation would be. complete. He contended that the system of central isation which prevailed in this colony, and in consequence of which the great bulk of the public expenditure went to Sydney aud a few favoured places in the country, should be remedied. A local Government Act meant local taxation, but under it thn people had the satisfaction of spending their own money as they thought n't. He believed that a rail way along the Northern Coast would pay, because it would give a choice of markets to the producers in these districts. He thought that instead of the ra...
