FARMERS' COLUMN. Mr. Peel an official of the Privy Council, giving evidence on Friday July G, before the select committee on the cattle pligue, stated that the restrictions put in force throughout the country in consequence of the recent outbreak of cattle plague had been "revoked, with the exception of the cordon round the metro- polis -Professor Brown, who was also examined, stated that the cattle plague had disappeared from the country, and that the regulations adopted for the purpose of stampin it out had also had the effect of considerably reducing the foot-and-mouth '^Ano^el form of disease amongst cattle has just broken out at Brighton, near Sheffield. In a case which came before the magistrates of the Elkington Police Division, on Monday, July 9th? the cattle on the farm of Mr. John Burrows were stated to have suffered severely from the malady nine* beasts; and three pigs having died from a recent attack. Mr.. loore, of the Council Office, Liverpool, inspected toe cases, and reported that the disease was splenic apoplexy. This it was subsequently as- certained did not come within the Contagious Diseases (Ani- mals) Act; but precautions are to be taken to prevent its spread. At ameeting of the Council of the Royal Agricultural Society, •held on Wednesday, July 4, it was reported that at the present time all the regulations which were made by various local authorities unde? the Cattle Plague Order of 1877 have ceased to operate, and the movement of stock in this country is free, With the single exception of the metropolis. The Metropolitan Cattle Pla-me Order of 1877, under the provisions of which cattle sheep and goats are confined within the metropolitan boundaries still remains in force. The necessity for this will be apparent when it is stated that in all the premises where cattle boundaries still remains in force. The necessity for this will be apparent when it is stated that in all the premises where cattle plague has existed, fresh stock have been or are now being introduced, and it will consequently be necessary to keep these animals under supervision for some time, in order to avoid the ■danger which would be incurred should an outbreak occur on previously infected premises, and any infected animals are sent to the Metropolitan Market, and thence removed to various I parts of the country, It is hoped that in a short time this only remaining restriction on the free movement of cattle m tne country may be removed.
