GOLDEN WEDDING.
A pleasing function took place yesterday at "Willow Brook," the occasion being the golden wedding of Mr and Mrs Broughan, the whole family being present. It is rather a unique occurrence to see parents at that age sit down to the table with all their children, ten in number, well and healthy. Mr and Mrs Broughan came out to this district when but boy and girl at the age of twelve and thirteen years, and have been settled here ever since. They were married on April 10th, 1860, and have just completed fifty years together, having watched this town grow from about one house to what we see today. The health of the old couple was heartily drunk and also that of the children, bringing a very pleasant afternoon to a close. Numerous congratulations and presents were received, testifying to the esteem in which Mr and Mrs Broughan are held.
