The long delayed visit of Archbishop Vaughan for the purpose of consecrating the new church, took place on Sunday last; and was the occasion, as might have been expected, of a very large gathering of the people of his communion, and not of those alone. Dr. Vaughan, had travelled overland from Sydney down the South Coast district during the week".
