Liberal Association was held in the Temperance Institute on Wednesday. There was a
good attendance and a profitable evening was spent.
The steam tug, which is to succeed the Sir William WALLACE at this port,
arrived on Sunday morning. She is named the Ganges, and come from
Newcastle-on-Tyne. A large number of people visited the harbour during the course of the
day to inspect the new arrival.
A great improvement has been made in the appearance of the Presbyterian
Church, in the shape of palisading of really artistic design. These have gates to
match, the pillars of which are surmounted with large and handsome globular
glass lamps which considerably enhance the value of the improvements.
Internally the church has been re-colored, &c., and is now as handsome an edifice as
can be found for miles around.
