The anniversary services of the Wesleyan Sabbath-School were conducted by the Rev. C. H. Goldsmith. On Monday over 100 children and their teachers marched with banners flying. After tea the Superintendent, Mr. E. Tralaggan, the Rev. C. H. Goldsmith, and Messrs. Jolley, Whitford, Murdoch, and Fry spoke at the public meeting.
Yesterday the township was visited with a great flood, an immense quantity of rain falling in a few minutes during a thunderstorm. Several families were threatened with being washed out, and made preparations accordingly, but no serious damage resulted.
