WRITING FOR THE PRESS. An esteemed correspondent favoured' us-last week with a short report of the installation of the Rev D. Davies, as pastor ofGadlys Baptist Chapel. For want of room we were obliged to hold over the following remarks which were appended to that report, and to which we nowA cheerfully give insertion :â We trust he (Mr Davies) will frequently favour us with his writings. By-the.bye, Mr Editor, talking about writing, can you tell me how it is that we so seldom See anything in your well- oonducted paper, or indeed, in any other paper, from thepen of our ministers ? Surely, they have a splendid sphere for doing good in this way. It seems to me it would be capital practice for them to enlighten us upon topics and movements which are of general, public, social, and moral good. Surely, no one need be deterred from fear of hard work, for this oftentimes only contributes to good health. I really should much like to see some of our good ministers occasionally entertaining us with their views upon topics of public interest. There is plenty of material for them to work upon. For instance, as matters of local interest, they can take in hand th" viain Drainage ques- tion, or the want of a Fire Eagine, and more fire-plugs. Our lieading-room would give plenty of matter for a d >zen articles. Tne old account system might coma in for a due share of attention. The propriety of pioviding an infirmary for Aberdare, and other questions of importance to the working men, might engage their skilful pens. Should they prefer a more extensive sphere and wish to soar aloft on eagle's-winga, and view the wants of the wide, wide world, the claims of the freed- men of America, who by millions are crying out for aid, might command their attention, or the efficiencv of com mercial treaties in binding the nations of the earth in peace and amity might have their earnest thought. In calling attention in this manner to what may certainly be deemed an omission on the part of our ministers in the discharge of tlleir.cluties as leaders and instruc- tors of the public, the writer may be deemed pre- sumptuous. That he does not much mind, if he by so doing can succeed in effecting a little good. There are worthy subjects which no men could better treat upon than our ministers which are now weekly left unheed.d, and if. as I suppose there is. there is room enough for their discussion in newspaper columns, I pray they may no long- er be allowed to remain dormant. I should like to know what you, Mr Editor, think abjut it. TIMOTHY.
