THE PRESBYTERIAN BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 14 May 1863
THE PRESBYTERIAN BAZAAR. Once more the late Mr Bruce's happy idea has been made. to answer a useful purpose; and that with such large results as could never have been looked for from any other available means. To realise funds for removing and re-building their church, the Heathcote Presbyterians very wisely hit upon this plan, and *have suc ceeded beyond what their most sanguine hopes could have led them to expect. All praise to those gentlemen who prosecuted the preliminary work of canvassing and collecting, for their. duties were far from being nominal, and they succeeded in pro voking a hearty co-operation. - Contributions of all kinds were sent -in on Monday last, and from that time till eleven a.m. on the following day the work of arranging. was diligently carried on., ."e iFy: then com m enedin'real earnest, good object contemplated: neve' has the Cricket Ground presentetd a more lively appearance.

Ratepayers who wish to appeal against the municipal assessment, will have to do so at the Police Court on Thursday next, the 21st instant, at eleven o'clock a.m.: There was no quoruni: at the meeting of the Hospital Visiting Conmittee on Tuesday afternoon, consequently no busi ness was done. A similar fate attended the Managing Committee .meeting on Tuesday evening. These .delinquenies must be. placed to the account of the Presbyterian' bazaar. A meeting. of the Managing Committee is called ;for Friday evening, ½pheh it is to be hoped a good number will attend, as the: payment of accounts'-and the election of a collector, are items of business which'it would be unjust and unwise to defer longer than is absolutely neceLary.

'IT 'is only the mind that soars above the Iumdrum monotony of the daily routine -Of life, that can trace clearly the sources .from whence spring the evils of the pre -sent hour under which the colonists are sufftering; and at no moment of the infan tile existence of the colony of Victoria .was more needed a guiding star to lead it ,'back to that buoyancy of youth which has so recklessly been supplanted by marks of .rematuro old age. From the pinnacle to -which we have soared, we look down with oorrow to see Australia Felx, as it was .once termed, trammelled with the results of thoughtless struggling for ofeoa in its government, for its fair fields for pasture by capitalists, for a fictitious value ef pro oprty rep:rsenting 'the capital of money lenders; .nd by applying funds'from the taxes levied upon the colonists to convey laborers from the United Kingdom, the colonial government at the same time throwing every possible impediment in the way of tho independent emigrant for 'his o...

THE POET LAUREATE. . The Poet Laireate has uttered himself a welcome-brief,'but melodious, and full of heary - jubilance.

But he.writes from the ieart on this occasion. "His admiration of the Prince Consort was a genuine and deep feeling; and the grief thatireathed in his brautiful 'dedica'ion. to the Idvils of the King " was no mer' adulatory. ordofficial assumptiou. The Queen and the Royal Family know and apprec'ate the ssicerity of senti. ment in all the utterances of the Laureate, ini con nexioa with the joys and sorrows of tte royal house hold; and are quite content, no doubt,'in their: sense of this slocerity, to excuse the infrequency of his official manifestations.

Every newspaper lately has contained some ac count of what great displays have been in contemplation; and these combined must have served to-make last Tuesday a pro riinent time in Australian history. As yet we have r?ot had- time to learn what success attended the up-country demons. trations ; but the accounts from Melbborno - which,of 'ourse, took the lead"- are highly satisfactory, allowing for that one drawback, unfavorable-weather.
