OPENING OF TIIE PRESBYTERIAN CliURClI AT STRATHALBYN. This event, which feas been for some time looked f-rward to with a keen and eager interest b}' the Pre!-fey»er:ans in and around Strath albyn, was cele brated on Tuesday last. The opening ser\-:oe- tverc preached on the previous Sunday by the ikvs. .J. Gardner and J'. Lyall, and on Tuesday the proceed ings consisted of a tea meeting in Mr Colman's store and a public meeting in the church. The building itself is certainly one of tbe noblest edifices of its kind in South Australia. Its architec ture is imposing, and the execution of the design reflects great credit on Messrs English & Brown, wbo were the contractors for the work. The church has now 500 sittings, which have been gained by substituting a nave of large proportions for tbe old building which formerly siooa at the back cf the present transept. The fittings of the cburch are simple and in good taste. The tea meeting on Tuesday was very largely attended— visitors ...

THE MEADOWS SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 September 1866

THE MEADOWS SCHOOL. The quest iou of the Meadows school was then considered, Mr. Jones remaining in the chair. Mr. D. J?imi'so.v said he bad taken a great deal of intere-t in tbe school, but at present there seemed to be nothing forthcaroing. Perhaps the Chairman or Treasurer of the fund could tell them when tenders were likely to be called for the erection of the building. Mr. Joxes explained that tbe ground had not been conveyed because of a delay on the part of the Central Road Board ; but he mu-t remind them that the Council had done all their part in the matter and placed their part of- the funds in the bands of the district treasurer. The deficiency was in tbe private sub-cripiions. He thought that Mr. Simpson ha-i brought the matter forward in an uncalled for manner. Mr. Sjstrsox said he had always taken an interest in the matter, and he would continue to do so until I it was either carried into effect or knocked on tbe ! head. Mr. Joxes said be bad repeatedly urged people to...

It may, however, now ihat the rejoicings are over, not be un profitable to look at matters in the clear light of day, and see whether a great deal of the eouleur de rose may not hare been cast upon objects which, of themselves would reflect a somewhat different shade, ' Progress !'

1 UVF ? MXLANG. We regret to^ate that the party recently dispatched hence to prospect on the Coorong for oil have returned unsuccessful. After boring to a depth of about 100 feet, their further progress was impeded by quicksand. All the shares in the Lake Alexandrina Steam Navigation Company have been taken up, and it is understood a tender has been accented for the subolv of a steamer suitable for the trade. We shall no doubt be able to announce definite arrangements next week. Things are very quiet here just now, but the regatta and other sports fixed for the 14th instant are eagerly anticipated as a. relief to the prevailing dullness. They will no doubt attract a large concourse of people from surrounding localities.

LOCAL NEWS. STRATHALBYN. , The Strathalhyn South-Eastern Rifle Asso ciation matches were continued last Friday, the 24th ult, when the small-bore prizes were contested. We subjoin the scores in another column. After a week's summer weather, some genial showers fell on Wednesday, and the change was as welcome as it -will be beneficial, especially to the fanners on the plains. The Strathalbvn Agricultural and Horti cultural Society are busily engaged in pre parations for . a show of live stock in October, when a large exhibition of prime fat cattle, horses, sheep, and pigs, is anticipated. The March show of this Society, held during the present year, indicated what highly satis- : factory results are likely to follow at this season, of the year from such an exhibition. The premiums usually offered by the Society are very liberal, and considering the excel lence of the district and ihe pluck and spirit of the people, we may fairly expect a show of stock equal, if not superior, to the m...
