(Goulburn Evening Penny Post - 29 April 1884)  "ST. SAVIOUR'S CATHEDRAL, GOULBURN. On the 15th of January, 1874, the corner stone of the beautiful pile that occupies a commanding site facing Montague-street was laid by the Bishop of Goulburn. The Hon. J. Campbell, M.L.C., and the Bishops of Bathurst and Newcastle assisted. From unavoidable causes the late Metropolitan, Dr. Barker, was unable to be present. The late E. T.
