The annual meeting of the above Committee was held at the sohoolhouse, Anderson Bay, to-day, when there were present Messrs A. llicoll (chairman), A. M'Kay, E. Inglis, and T. Robertson, jun.

The Clerk stated that two applications from licensees in the district had been received—namely, from Thomas Smithson, Scao'iff, and William Donaldson, Highcliff. The po'ice reports were extremely favorable, showing that the houses were conducted in the best possible manner.

The other members concurring in the remarks of the chairman, Constable Hartnett thanked them for their kindly appreciation of his merits, and the meeting then terminated.
