Details: The residents of Bullock Island met together for the purpose of considering the advisability of erecting a public school at that place.

Details: Honeysuckle Point, one mile from town, is the first suburb. Here there is a bridge over the creek to Bullock's Island, and a branch of the Great Northern line also runs there. The dyke now being made will form a large dock, and the additional railroad and wharfage facilities afforded at Bullock's Island will enable double the quantity of coal shipped at present to be loaded with ease. On the island are several important establishments, the chief of which is the Soho Foundry of Messrs. Morrison and Bearby, situated at euphonious Onebygamba. Here the other day a large fog-bell, for the Northern breakwater, was cast. I believe it was one of the largest castings ever made in the colony, and the event created quite an excitement in the local Press
