CHURCH OF ENGLAND TEMPERANCE ASSOCIATION. The regular monthly meeting of this Society wa3 held as usual, on Monday evening last, in tho church, a largo number of persons being in i attendance, tho President, (Rev. F. S. Wilson) occupied the chair. Tho proceedings wero opened in the customary manner with praise and prayer, and supplemented by tho chairman reading a portion of tho 44th chap. Jeremiah, who afterwards delivored an address thereon, laying particular stress on the ivords ' Whore foro commit ye this great evil against your own souls?' Ho (the Chairman) viewed this pas sage as one of the sidelights that did not specially prohibit drunkenness, as thero were many evils that wero committed against the soul independent of that great sin. There were many evils that would bo remedied, such as prodigality, extravagance, and injury to. property, but that against the soul must be atoned for in a far different manner. This make3 the question '' Why do you sin against your own souls ?...

. We hail with satisfaction the formation of a Building Society in Grenfell. The great Success which has attended Bimilar societies in other places 13 a sufficient guarantee that there ia room for one here, and that, if pro perly managed, it would prove of great ; advantage, not to the members alone, but to the town generally. We very heartily wish ? it success, and hope that the class for whose more espeoial benefit the Society is intended, will come forward, and take up a sufficient .. number of shares to place it on a sure basis. The assistance which these societies offer to working men are, that they enable them to procure, by monthly payments, money to build a house of their own, and to attain such an end is, we should imagine, a sufficient inducement for all who can afford it, to spare a few shillings each week, in order that they may avail themselves of the above mentioned advantages, viz., that by the payment for a time of not more than they are now paying for rent, they can...

THE POLITICAL SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 15 December 1877
THE POLITICAL SITUATION. Tiiere is a general feeling of dissatisfaction with the course taken by the Governor in send ing for Sir Henry Parkes, the country being of ? opinion that both the Knights should be left in the cold, for so long as they are permitted to carry on their little game of in and out, so long will all useful legislation be prevented. From tho numerous enquiries made at our office during the week, in is evident that the move ments of the political barometor are as keenly watched in the provinces as they are in the metropolis, and that the general public are fully alive to the importance of the present critical position of the country. The following particulars of the events of the week show that tho late elections have not improved the position of Mr. Parkes in the Heuse any more than that of Sir John Robertson. Early in the week we had intelligence, that Sir Henry Parkes had offered office to Mr. Farnell, and Mr. Burns, and that he was in communication with Mr. Sut...
THE MISTLETOE. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 22 December 1877
THE MISTLETOE. Hb gave it me twelve months ago — This little branch of mistletoe ; , He gave it me, a tender smile Lighting his dark oyes up the while : Uft, take tins gitt, and know that he ? Who gives it hath a love for thee, As pure as these white borries are, ? And faithful as the Northern Star.' ' I took his gift ; my smile was bright, For a joyous heart was mine that night ; ? - The months passed o'er in joy or pain ? -And Christmas-tide is hero .again. ' The mistletoe lies before mo now ? I heave a sigh for tho broken vow, For the shifting sand I built upon, For the faith that died ere the year was gono ; The truth of his tender words is o'er, ° And the mistletoe now is prized no more. His vows of love, I have put them by In the haunted rooms of memory ; And Time shall drown in his ceaseless flow The tears that fell on the mistletoe.

rMoRE than fifty generations have come and gone since tho plains of Bethlehem were radiant with heavenly glory, an'l the awe struck sbopherds heard the angelic song of ' Glory to God in the highest, on earth peace, goodwill to men.' Through all subse quent ages, even the darkest, have men rejoiced in that light, and amongst the din of arms have the echoes of that song been heard. Genius, in its manifold forms, has gained new information from the wondrous theme. Painting, music, eloquence, poetry, have come with the shepherds and the magi, to y a ib, and wonder, and adore, at tho shrine of the incarnate God, and to lay their offerings at his feet. , - ? '-.
