The I.tieiiNtN Appear.
Nyack, N.Y., April 2(1.���The seventeen year locusts appeared by the
thousands yesterday, coining up
through holes iu the ground, which
looked as though made with a cauu
and varying from one to three feet in
depth. At sunset the larvae again
retired into these holes. It tho
weather is warm they will be able to
climb this week, and then the destruction of young foliage will begin. Most
of the grubs which came cut yesterday
were very lively. They are precisely
like those which appeared iu 1877.
The larvae from under moss have been
sheltered in perfectly formed clay nests
similar to wasp's. The nn rage depth
at which they are now found is one
foot, showing that they have travelled
from two to three fuel within two
weeks. Large numbers have liecu

Djcs be not overlook n powerful controlling cause in the price of wheat

introduced for the purchase of wheat
iu silver currency countries such as
India, Russia nud the Argentine Republic?
I is well known that the purchasing power of silver lor home products,
iu silvtr currency countries, lots been
approximately steady fur many years,
although silver bus now become almost
a drug on the market outside their
boundaries. Consequently, lhe Liverpool or Loinloii wheal merchant can
purchase cheap silver with his gold,

wheal, the price of which litis not been

Tliu >liner.il Act ns Amended
Editnr Got.liUN Eua :
Silt, - Iii the interest of Miners will
anybody be good enough to say,
through the medium of tbe EltA,
whether the term "rock in place"
covers the soft lead and copper carbon
atos and tho soft hematites which are
frequently found filling up the chambers or caverns iu tho limestone formation. These ores are not iu any
sense " rocks " eithor in or out of plaoo,
ami il would be well that their " place"
in the Mining Act should be determined
now rather than later on.
lu lot,king over the amendments of
1HII4 I liud some inaccuracies which
shot,111 hu correciel, namely : Section
43 ane 44, referring to Crown Grants,
are made to include tlie owners "rights
set forth in Sec. HI, 1WI1," which Section, unhappily fur the compiler of
these amendments, was repealed in
1892. It would be well therefore fur
those who have obtained Crown Grunts
for claims staked in 1892, and since
then, to ascertain whether they have
not got InUOxliliO feet according to Sec.
ill (cancelled), or loOOxli'iOO according
to the present, law iuiroiluced iu W)2.
Again in Form P. (notice certificate
of improvements) thu old error in reference to nil veise claims has been continued iu these words "before the
issuance of such certificate of improvements," when the Sec ill (1 ami 2)
clearly says that adverse claims must
be filed with the Mining Recorder (not
the Cold Commissioner) within lib
days of the Gaiutte notice, and proceedings commenced within ilJ days
thereafter. As there is uo period provided iu the Act within which a C. ot
I. must be issued by the Cold Commissioner, uud in, he limy be unavoidably
absent from his office lor weeks at a
time it follows that there is no definite
period at which adverse claims must
he lodged within. The form is in conflict with Sec. .'17 and ought to be corrected.
Anu now homes a Warning to Investors. Section 7 says "When a
holder of a Mineral claim has taken
out his Certificate of Improvements he
shall not record any transfer of his
rights iu the saiil claim until he obtains his Crown Grant.n The owner,
it appears, must wait tho convenience
of the Gold Commissioners to get his
certificate of improvements first, nnd
having obtained that indispensable
testimony of good conduct he must
wait the leisurely ways of the Lands
and Works office next, nnd if the ring
in Victoria-this "council often"���
has no objections to the issue of the
Crown Grant, he may then sell and
transfer his-is it his or iheir's?-
property. All this in the face of Sec.
41, not repealed, which states lhat
pu-rchnsers of n claim after a certificate
uf improvements has been applied (or
may on proof of transfer have Ihe certificate in bis own name, and similarly
that a purchaser ol a claim after a certificate of improvement has been obtained may have the Crown Grant
issued to himself.
Truly the ways of our law-makers
are -xist finding out!
