John Fletcher, engineer and founder, Port Adelaide, stated he had supplied machinery arid pipes to the Moorook and New Residence settlements.

MISSION OF TEE PASSICSHSTS. The dense crowds that assemble day after day from 6 o'clock in the morning till 10 o'clock at night in tho Roman Catholic Cathedral testify to the wide-spread interest excited by the mission of the PassioniBt fathers to this city.

Whichever of these definitions is preferred, certain is it that each order has its own special work and its own peculiar characteristics. The leading characteristic of the congregation now laboring in our midst may be said to be to 'induce men to realise the sufferings of Christ, and by...
