1857 The metalling of Broadway was completed.

 1884 Low Ching, a well known resident Chinaman, was this morning missed from his usual place of working in a mining claim, and was subsequently found lying dead on the floor of his hut. He was dressed, and nothing appeared to have been disturbed. A few pounds were found in his pocket. An inquiry will be held, but death is believed to have arisen from natural causes.
