A branch of the South Australian Benefit Society was opened on Monday evening, Jnly 15, at tlie Catholic Schoolroom, Gawler. The District Officers, Mr. 3. 3. Cronin (Chair man), and 3. Kemp Penney (Corresponding Secretaiy), were in attendance, and initiated about 30 neinbers as the founders, and 10 other members were proposed. Tbe following officers were then appointed:—Messrs. O'Shea, Chair man; Hynes, Vice-Chairman; O'Brien, Secre tary ; Puroell, Assiatant Secretaiy; aud Key. O. A. Reynolds, Treasurer. After the election of Trustees, and the appointment of minor officers, the meeting closed with a vote of .thanks to the District Officers for their attend ance. From the interest manifested by the Catholic community of Gawler, there is no doubt but this branch will pQive a prosperous addition to the Society. The registered births for the month of June last were 658, tbe rate per cent, being '383. The deaths were 296, the rate per cent. -73. This shows a smaller percentage of births than in any corresponding month for the last six yean. The percentage of deaths in June, 1864, was '197, and in June of last year '178; for the other years Bince 1861 the percentage for June was much lower than for that month in this year. The registered births and deaths for the iuarter ended June 30 number respectively ,808 and 827, and exceed those of the previous gnarter by 303 and 53. The amount of births i less than that of the corresponding quarter of 1566 by 33—the deaths also by 70. The average number of births for the quarter ending June 30, during five years ending 1866, was 1,658 "8. The rate per cent, of births for the quarter ending 30th June last is 1058—the smallest percentage during tbe last six years. The per centage of deaths for last quarter was '481, Doing less than the percentage for the corre sponding quarter in lfy34 and 1*57. We very deeply regret having to record the decease of Mrs. Stow, the widow of the late Rev. T. Q. Stow, the pioneer of Congrega- tionalism -in this colony. Mrs. Stow was an American lady by birth, being a native of New- foundland. She emigrated with her husband to this colony nearly 50 years ago, and reached here in the ship Hartley on October 16, 1837. She of course was associated with all the early toils and privations and dangers which her hus- band so bravely endured; and she encouraged and aided him by her counsel and sympathy. In April, 1843, Mr. Stow settled on the Torrens, at Felixstow, where Mrs. Stow died on Monday afternoon. For several years past the in firmities of age had kept Mrs. Stow very much at home, and the loss of her revered husband, in July, 1862, was a great shock to her. Her decease, however, was somewhat sudden, and took the family by surprise. On Friday last she was seized with a prostrating illness, and gradually her strength failed her till life ebbed away. Mrs. Stow was in the seventy first year of her age when she died. The remains of the above lady were interred on Wednesday, July 10. The cortege left the de ceased lady's late residence at Felixstow, Payneham, about 2 o'clock. It consisted of a magnificent hearse and five mourning coaches, besides other vehicles containing the following chief mourners: —Messrs. R. I. Stow, M.P., J. P. Stow, A. Stow, M.P., and W. Stow (sons of the deceased); Messrs. C. Sabine, E. Sabine, Rev. C. W. Evan, Messrs. S. Tomkinson, A. Brodie, Sen., Henry Giles, James Smith, R. G. Bowen, Thos. Graves, A. Brodie, jun., —Myles, W. Bakewell, Rev Mr. Hodge; Messrs. M. Goode, C. Smedley, Alex. Hay, &c The funeral procession passed along the Glynde road, Botanic-road, North-terrace, Pulteney and Rundle streets, up Freeman-street to the Stow Congregational Church. Here the coffin was borne into the Church, and a solemn and impressive service was conducted by the Rev. C. W. Evan (the pastor of the Church). From the Church the procession passed along Franklin-street and West-terrace to the Cemetery, where a short service was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Hodge. Amongst those assembled round the vault we noticed the Very Rev. the Dean, Revs. Jas. Jefferis, Chas. Manthorpe, John Gardner, R. Haining, Messrs. W. C. Buik (Mayor of Ken sington and Norwood), P. B. Coglin, M. P., W. Bruce, Robert Stuckey, Joseph Stuckey. Wm. Giles, A. Macgeorge, James Macgeorge, John Davis, E. T. Smith, John Kelly, James Frew, R. Frew, E. B. W. Glandfield, J. L. Young, W. Palmer, H. Dean, and a great many others. Along the line which the procession took, espe cially in Rundle-street, the shops were partially closed as a mark of respect to the deceased lady, whose name, connected with that of her hus 'band, is so closely associated with the early   religious history of this colony. The funeral arrangements were directed by Mr. Conigrave, ot Rundle-street. The following is a comparative state ment of transactions in the Lands Titles Office during the month of June :— 1866. 1867.

It wa_ found that tho subscriptions and collections amounted together to more than £50, and after some minor arrangements, it waa agreed that tho?e ladies who were collecting, but did not attend the meeting, should be requested to send their subscription, to Mr. F. G. Waterhouse, ?t tho Institute (wbo bas kindly consented to receive them for the above purpose), before the 24th inst. It is proposed to place the statue beside that of the Amazon, already in our Botanic Garden. On Friday evening, June 28, the annual meeting of the Adelaide Educational In stitution Old Scholars' Association was held at the new schoolroom, Freeman-street, the Presi-   dent, Mr. H. Bickford, being in the chair, and upwards of twenty gentlemen being present. The Secretary (Mr. J. F. Coni grave) read the annual report as follows:— "Your Committee have called you together to receive their annual report, and to engage in the election of officers for the forthcoming year. They have little, however, to report. Their in come during the year, including last year's balance, haa been £46 4s. 5d., and their exjiendi ture. £43 12s. lOd., leaving a balance of £2 lis. 7d. This balance will, however, be re duced by expenses incurred in convening this meeting. Last June the Treasurer had a balance of something like £6 in hand, but the increased expenditure this year is principally accounted for by the extra expense to which the Com mittee were put with respect to the annual   dinner. The dinner was held in the Town Hall Buildings, on September 14, when there was a very good attendance, and the proceedings passed off with great good feeling and cordiality. The Old Scholars' prize was, according to cus tom, awarded at the December Examination. It consisted of a handsome writing-desk, and was presented by the President to Mr. C. C Kingston. The number of members on the roll is 112, being an increa.se of ten over last year. This number, however, is not in proportion to the many old scholars who are in the colony, and the Committee would take this opportunity of again urging those who recur to schoolday reminiscences, and wish occasionally to renew schoolboy friendships, to join the Old Scholars' Association. Its objects have been often ex plained. They are to promote kindly feeling amongst the old pupils of Mr. Young now that

circumstances have separated them, and to pro- vide a means for their assembling together once in the year to meet each other and Mr. Young in a social and friendly manner. The Com mittee wonld gladly welcome any new members of this Association, which it is hoped will be- come as permanent an Institution as that with which it is associated. The whole of the Com mittee retire this evening, and it will devolve upon the present meeting to elect their successors." The Treasurer (Mr. A. K. Whitby) read the balance-sheet On the motion of Mr. C. Hack, seconded by Mr. G. Bean, the report and balance-sheet were adopted. The following officers were then duly elected for the ensuing year:—President, Mr. C. W. Babbage; Secre tary. Mr. M. S. Clark; Treasurer, Mr. L. H. Sholl. Committee —Messrs. Chapman, Coni grave, Bickford, Finlayson, and Auld. A vote of thanks to the retiring officers was passed and duly acknowledged, and the meeting ter minated.
