KIlTIAfiONC. (FllOM OCR OWN ConiUiSrONDENT.) Since writing last the weather lias oeen very unsettled, and we have had glorious rain. Owing to the pouring rain on Anniversary day the Protestant Alliance could not come out properly, but had to content themselves with a tea-naeeting in the lodge\x=req-\ room, to which about seventy persons sat down and partook of the good things provided. The Mittagong Brass Band was in attendance and played some very pretty selections, one in particular being the Rowing Club Waltz composed by Mr. J. Hardy, bandmaster. About 6 o'clock the people dispersed, tho band playing God Save the Queen. Tho most noticoable thing was the splendid banner exhibited in the buildiug, which reflects great credit on the maker and the lodge to which it belougs. The Presbyterian Church has been commenced. The contractor is Mr. Linklater, of Moss Yale, and it is hoped it will bo finished in about three months. A public meeting hall is being erected by Mr. J. Wright next to...

The Proposed Colonial Council in London. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 4 February 1885
The Proposed Colonial Council in London. The Eight Hon. W. E. Forster, M.P., has contributed an article to the Nineteenth Cen tury, in which he discusses the proposal of Earl Grey to refer important questions af fecting the colonial affairs of the Empire to a council consisting of the Agents-General for the colonies and, other representative men. Mr, Forster regards the scheme as urgent, £*nd one calculated to devolop the powers of the Federal Council both in peace and in war. He further points out that by its agency an allotment of the cost of de fence could be made. Mr.. Forster consid ers that the admission of the Australian colonies to representation in the Imperial Parliament would be found impracticable.
Our Oldest Inhabitant. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 4 February 1885
Our Oldest Inhabitant. It is a matter of some interest to know who is fcho oldest resident in Australia. The honour is claimed for Mrs. Ann Morgan, who resides in Pitt-street, Redfern. She ■ came to the country in 1791, in the" second fleet," having been bora on the passage out. Her father was in the New South Wales corps, commanded by Colonel Pa.terson. Her age is 94. She is hale, possessed of all of all her faculities, and is a great-great grandmotber.- It is probable that there are many persons on, this continent older in the matter of age who arrived here much later on* but as none of tlwse who come in the &lt;' first fleet" in 1788 are liviug or, as far as wo know, any others of the " second fleet," Mrs. Morgan must be our " oldest inhabitant." Her memory enables her to recall what Sydney was in the first decade of this century, and she can say much as to the many changes that have taken place.

Five thousand pounds won't buy Myrtlemore Park, to-day, I can tell you." The gentleman who spoke first thereupon walked into the room where the. sale- was being conducted. The estate referred to was put up almost immediately afterwards. The auctioneer was a big stalwart man and evidently possessed of a good pair of lungs.

THE MYRTLEMORE TRAGEDY. By Ada G'oldsby. (Written Expressly for tub Bowiul Free Press.) CHAPTER ii.—HARD TIMES. Archibald Mayne was the only surviving son of very poor parents who resided in tbo world's great metropolis. His father died \yhen he was only ten years of age; and his widowed mother, for several years after wards, depended almost solely on hiseflorts for support. His father had taught him to read and write fairly well,, for ho was, too poor to send him to school. Archibald was naturally a smart lad and always willing to. learn ; so that h.'s father had Jittlo trouble with him. When Mr. Mayne died, however, the lad had but little time for learning for then he had to face the stern hardships and grim realities of life : and for a long time he and his mother lived on the few pence he managed to/earn by running errands, and holding gentlemen's houses; but how they did so on such a mere pittance was. a mystery I shall not attempt to. explain. Would that some of us in. sunny N...
