Dawn was just breaking when two files of gendarmerie under an English oilicer entered the square at a pnce so slow that it was almost like marking time.

CAMPBELLTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 25 August 1883

CAMPBELLTOWN. (From the Herald.) Campbelltown has long had a high reputa- tion as a sanatorium; in fact, tho whole   district surrounding it is noted for its salubrity, and the residents are conspicuous for their longevity. This town is also one of the oldest settled places in the colony ; the people, among other virtues, are noted for their easo and content, and as lovers of peace and quietness. They are rather averse to adopting any sudden changes from the old-fashioned style of gettingon in the world. Id took much lo rouse them into municipal action, and it will take more to coax them from their allegiance to recognised institutions. They have a Church of England, built in "the good old   times," whose services are well attended, comparatively, by an excellent congregation. They have a Catholic church well minis- tered to, and supported by a numerous and devout class of worshippers. They have a Presbyterian kirk admirably suited for its special purposes;...
