A movement is on foot to build a Roman Catholic church here. It is understood that a fair is to be in August to provide fund, and several substantial donations have already been promised for the object.

The appearance of the Catholic church at the corner of Church and Bridge streets has been considerably enhanced during this week by the placing in position of a marble figure on the top of the tower. The figure depicts the Saviour standing with out stretched arms, and forms a most at tractive and significant finish to the Church. It was placed in position under the direction of Mr. Patterson, contractor of Launceston – and it weighs over half a ton; a good deal of care and judgment were necessary in hoisting it so high.
