FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT

A MEETING has lately been held in the court-house at this place, for the purpose of forming branches of the Church of England Association, both here mid at the neighbouring township of Bowenfells. The Rev. T. Hassall, from the Cowpastures, presided on the occasion, assisted by the Rev. W. Lisle, of Kelso, -who has hitherto performed punctually, and in all weathers, the arduous monthly task of coming forty-five miles to preach at Hartley. The chairman was aided also by the Rev. H. Tuigcombe, of Carcoar, who had arrived accidentally while the meeting was being held, and by the, Rev. J. Troughton, whose recent acceptance of the pastoral care of this neighbourhood is hailed by many a resident an the dawning of a better day upon this hitherto neglected district. The meeting, in spite of rainy weather, was well attended. The proceedings were opened with prayer, and the rev. chairman having addressed his auditors, the following resolutions were moved and seconded, and carried unanimously. Moved by the Rev. J. Troughton, seconded by Mr. R.B. Dawson : " That we firm ourselves into a branch association of the Church Society in Sydney, and that it be called ' the Hartley Branch Church of Eigland Association,' and that we pledge ourselves to obtain subscriptions and donations to further its objects." Moved by the Rev. Lisle, seconded by Mr. George Jones : " That every person, being a member of the Church of England, and paying one shilling per month, or twelve shillings per an-num, shall be a member ;

that the following gentlemen be requested to act as president, secretary, and treasurer, viz.-

President, Rev. J. Troughton;

-Messrs. John Oxley Norton, Joseph Collitt, Henry Baylis, Dr. Robert Ryegate, Messrs. John Collitt, James Sherringham, James M'Coy, George Sheppard, with power to add to their number ; three, with the president, to form a quorum.
