The Most Densely Populated Portion of the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886
The most Densely Populated Portion of the Earth. It has been for a long time asserted and believed that the island of Barbadoes, with 266 square miles and a population of 175,000, which is 1054 persons to tha: i square mile, was the most densely inhabited portion of the earth's surface. From a communication of Mr. John Wortliington, the Consul of the United States at Yaletta, Malta, it appears that in the matter or density of population Barbadoes must yield the palm to Malta. That island contains 95 square miles of surface, and contains 142,500 inhabitants (exclusive of the British garrison and , ' visitors and non-residents), which is an average of 1500 to the square mile. Tho . city of Yaletta contains a great plethora v» of population, its area being 1.318 square miles and its population 24,854, a population of 78,157 persons to tho square mile. There is one specially populous quarter of Valetta, known as the Manderaggio, the area of which is 1*004 square mile, or 2'56 acres, whe...
The Admiralty. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886
The Admiralty. A memorandum lias been published, addressed by Lord Charles Beresford to tho Board of Admiralty, exposing and denouncing in scathing language tho absence of all plans and preparations for war, tho deficiency of officers, mon, and material, and contrasting this unprepared ness with tho elaborate preparations of Foreign Admiralties. Lord C. Beresford urges an extension of the intelligence department with a special section for preparing plans of a campaign and mobilisation and organisa tions with means for immediate action in the event of war. Lord C. Beresford has admitted tho authorship, and declares that the Fall Mall Gazette obtained, surreptitiously, ti confidential document, prepared for tho Board of Admiralty. Its publication, therefore, was unjustifiable.

Important to Members of Benefit Societies. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886
Important to Members of Benefit Societies. In the case M'Combill v. Saunders et al. trustees of the Bricklayers' Benefit Society, heard recently before the District Court Judge Dowling, in which the plaintiff sought to recover accident pay from the society, the plaintiff was non suited without costs on a legal point, viz., that under Act No. 12, of 1881 (Trade Union Act), section 4, it is'not competent for any court to entertain any legal pro ceedings instituted for directly enforcing or recovering damages for (amongst other thiugs) providing benefits to mem bers. His Honor expressed sympathy with thO plaintiff (an aged man), but considered himself bound by the Act, and therefore gave no costs. It is worthy of note in connection with this matter that in the society's rules, which we understand are in their general principles similar to those of all benefit societies, no arbitration clause is included, and no provision made wheroby members of tbo society may recover benefits they all...

Increase of the French Navy. The French are making strenuous efforts to possess a fleet wholly out of proportion to their national and commercial require ments.

There are to be added to the French fleet, between this date anl the first of the coming year, six squadron ironclads, four barbette ships, two turret ships, and three cruisers of the first class. The ironclads will carry guns of from 14 to 42 centimetres, which are described as most formidable weapons. It is stated, however, that the cruisers are slow sailers, and that considerable improvement must be made in their engines to fit them for the requirements of modern naval warfare. None of the ironclads can sail 15 knots per hour, and only one...
