THRE COOLIE LABOR QUESTION. (To the Editor of the Nlorthero Argys.) Sla,-I apprehend that it is scarcely necessary to define what is implied in the phrase, "The Coolie Labor Question;" but to prevent the possibility of mistake, I will state the proposition thus: ft/ce ex pediency of supplementinsg .Europeane Labor woith Asiatic. In a recent issue, you advocated tlhe introduction of Coolie labor, and justly stigmatizcd as " bugbears," the anticipa tions that Europeau labor 'would be swamped, and society corrupted in con sequence of such a measure. I greatly regretted that instead of treating the sub-, ject at length, as its importance dematdds;, you merely touched on it with a.few pithy remarks. A leading article on.this topic jis, I conceive, a desideratum, aid I shall anxiously watch th .futurec issiiee:ofthei .Noitiern Argus in the hpeo ofd seeing?: it sfupplied; meanwhile permie:ine tolay before you some of the mosot salient.fea_ tures of the question.

TIE. PRESENT STATE OF AGRICUd TURE IN IRELAND.-EFFORITS TO IMPROVE IT. * (Fromn the Timecs' own Correslpondent.) SDublini, October 31st. Last Thursday there was a meeting in the Court-house of B?llina, called by Colonel Knox Gore, Major Knox, Captain Jackson, and other gentlemen, for the purpose of organtsing an Agricultural Improvement SociBty. It was numie rously attended, and excited great iuter est, being alike remarlkable for the free discussion of the land question, and for tlhe statements made regarding the causes of "Irish decline," and the enmigra tion of the agricultural classes. The chair was taken by Colonel Knox Gore, who spoke at some length on the present state of the agricultural interest in this country. He is a good resident landlord, a man of superior intelligence, and has studied the subject, and, after much con sideration, has submitted the results of his reflections to the public.

SUPPLyINOG DaRIci TO DUNKAiRDS. WVe have had our attentioln called to the nefarious system of Lsupplving intoxicating liquors to known and conlirmcd drunkards.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 26 January 1864
TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIIE KIAfIA INDEPE?DENT. Sin,-The recent execution against the ex-alderman of the Shoallaven M.uni cipality, reminds me forcibly of a par graph from some theatricalregister. "'?C have had occasion to observe for some time past, a lamentable falling off in tle farces,the performances invariably concluding with what, in theatrical phrase, is entitled ' Heavy Pieces,'" and certainly the conclu sion of the drania of the defunct munici pality has been rather heavy, (all must allow) to my ex-aldermanic brothers. In your last issue, I had the pleasure of perusing the letter signed "An Ex-Alder mani," and tlhink hlie has icein a little unjust to the Nowsra Ward representatives, when he penned the following extract:-" Now, what seems strange, Mr. Editor, is that these two, (referring to the two Good Dog aldermen levied on), were to be made the scape - goats for all the rest. Now, why these, and niot the principal defendanit, or mayor, is what I would like to knowm P" "If wh...

The object of the meeting was stated to be-the consideration of the question whether it was advisable to take steps for the dissolution of the council; or to proceed with the elections for the ensuing year. After some coaversition Aldermanun Black rose to morve thlat it was desirable to proceed with the elecetio of aldermen to lill tii pltees of those who are now about to retire in rotation. He thought it doubt ful whether it was legially etmpetenut to the iCouscil to resign its fisnctions ; and thought it was not desirable to do so until at least it had been settled what was to be done about tlhe cash cre...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 26 January 1864
IT is probable that in a very few days a deputation consisting of gentlemen who are or have been members of our Municipal Council will proceed to Sydney, for the purpose of obtaining an intcrriew with the Co!onialSecretary,and ascertaining whether the Government is disposed to relieve from theresponsibilityof the cash credit obtained at the Commercial Bank, those gentlemen whose names still remain allixed to thle bond which the Bank holds as security for the money which it advanced for the use of the corporation. Tile althirs of thie munici pality are in a state of complicated disorder, from whiehit is highl time that some eflort were made to disentangle tshem. There can be little doubt, mnore from the example of Goulburn than that of Shoalhlaven, that in case of litigation betwreen the Municipal Council and ranyone who may dispute its powers to levy anrd so forth, thie jridgment of the highest Court in the colony will be adverse to the corporation. It is at present of little use to...

HORSE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 26 January 1864
HORSE MARICKET.. Mr. Charles Martin reports The past week has afforded an additional instance of the fluctuations to which the horse market has of late been subject. Consequent upon the departure of several of the principal buyers from Sydney, the demand has consider ably diminished, while the quantity of stock offesred at thie Bazaar sales was gre~atly in ex. cess of last week's supply, thus rrenlering the sales still duller than tlhey otherwsse would have been. Therere sre no fresh drafts of con scqnence sold at thie Bazaar, but at tihe Cam perdown Yard two sales were held, vie., a draft of broken-in horses oa Tuesday last, at from £6 to £22 10s; and a draft of bhthl broken and unbroken staock, belonging to J. D. Cadham, Esq., on Thursday, at from £2 to £17 5s.
