Catherali (chairman) presided over a mcding of this authoxity.-Tlic unsatisfactory t; ate of some of the grids was discussed.—The Clerk said he luid been in communication with tho County Countiil on the matter, and he understood t;tcy had been attended to—Mr. Hughes rose and disputed this, because he knew of two that were flooded altar every storm that oame.—Mr. Peters said ho had himself put the question before the County Surveyor, and had; been answered that the work was completed.—Mr. Newton said a con- siderable stench came up the grids, and he thought it should bo seen to, as they wero re- sponsible for sewerage.—Finally Mr. Astbury was instructed to eoo into the matter.—1The Medical OilloCi" imported five deaths, all iiial,w. Two were ot such a nature as required an inquest. The births numbered 19, males nine, females ten.

In tho present epidemic death had often been the result, and measles of tho typo experienced at Buckley this year were of a particularly serious nature.—Tho Clerk regretted that through a mis- take the letter and agreement with Mr. Ayres, engineer, had been misJaid, and consequently no discussion upon the tonus could take place.—Mr. Hughes said if councillors would read both agree- ments carefully they would find the eeoond agree- ment more stringent than the. first. He thought it was a case of getting as much money out of them, as possible, and ho warned them not to gn it unless a thorough examination of each term had been mad?. He moved that every member be supplied with a copy, and this was agreed to.- The Clerk suggested that Mr. Ayres be asked to come down for an interview, the Council to meet an hour beforehand.—This was agreed to, and on the proposition of Mr. Lamb.
