THE REV. DR. LANG. When this gentleman arrived in Shoalhaven the Presbyterian Minister and elders at once tendered him the use of their church to perform Divine service and preach in,. but it appears fthere is an higher pQwer than theirs, ari unchris tian malevolent illiberal spirit superior to their c:hristian desire to compliment the man whom above all others has served the cause of christi anity and of religion more than any other of his church in New South Wales. Late on Satur day night Mr. Alex:. Berry, M.L.C., addressed an angry note to. the Rev. M. Garven, threat ening to denounce him to the Synod if he per mitted the Rev, Doctor Lang to preach in the church which, he, Mr. Berry thus presumes to have authority over as he gave the land upon which it is erected; the former transmitted it to the elders, and u?on the con tents being made known t tthe Doctor he at once declined the use of the church fearing, from his knowledge of Mr. Berry's . ing vindictiveness, that he would har...

THE ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 1 January 1859
THE ATLANTIC TcEr:aRAPW -We are not a demonstiutive race.: We take our successes and. our failures with equal gravity. Our cousins across the Atlaintie haio' picked up more of .the quick, expressive southern element, and they beat us in the display of public feeling. In the first apparerit success of the Electric Cable they' went madv with delight and self-applause. Though we' had contributed equal science and most of; the capital, they forgot us altogether. No sooner does the wire give uncertain signs than they discover we havei had the managementof it, and that all will be right as soon as the American instruments can be conveyed 'to Trinity Bay. If any faith, however, is to be put in a startling" despatch received at Halifax from New York,. our instruments are more efficacious than theirs: At this end of the cable we have neither given? way to extravagant joy, nor fallen out of temper with" our partners in'the scheme, because for the present things -weru't as we expected.
