CHURCH AT BALMAIN.—A preliminary meet- ing of the inhabitants of Balmain, inte-
rested in the erection of a church, was held on Thursday evening in the Episcopalian
schoo-room, the Rev. F. Wilkinson in the
chair. It was resolved to proceed imme- diately with the collection of funds to erect a small church, built with hammered stone, on a piece of ground near the hotel, presented for that purpose by Mr. Wilkinson. A com- mittee was formed to collect subscriptions and make other arragements, to be reported to a meeting to be held on a subsequent occa- sion. The Rev. Mr. Wilkinson officiates at Ashfield and Balmain alternately, but when the church is erected, the committee are in hopes that they will be able to provide for the permanent residence of a clergyman at Bal- main, as the population is rapidly increasing and with the facilities afforded by steam com-
munication with Sydney, is likely to continue
to do so.
