The New Zealand Evangelist
On Tuesday the 22nd ult., the tenth anniversary of the colony was observed as usual at Kaori [sic: Karori], by a Public Tea Meeting in the Chapel. The children of the Sabbath School were first served, afterwards the general company. About 250 persons, young and old, partook of the “cup which cheers but not inebriates.” After Tea Mr. Woodward was called to the chair, and addresses were delivered,—by Mr. Green, on the demoralizing tendency of horse-racing and what are called rural sports, especially upon the young,—by Mr. Inglis, on intemperance, and the objections usually page 287 started against abstaining from intoxicating drinks;—and by the chairman, on the importance of Sabbath School instruction. The day was delightful, the arrangements good, and the Tea-meeting was decidedly the best we have ever seen at Karori.
