PRESENTATION TO THEODORE HUGHES, ESQ. On Wednesday, the churchwardens and principal gentlemen of our parish met in the vestry-room of St.Michael's Church, tolpresent Mr.Theodore Hughes with a testimonial in acknowledgment of the services he has, from time to time, and more especially with- in the last two months, rendered to the church. Amongst those present we nottced the Rev. E O. Phillips, M.A.; Rev. Mr. Lewis; Johu Davies, Esq., Mayor, Thomas Jones, Esq &c,&e. The Rev. E. O. Phillips occupiedth the chair on the occasion, and the Mayor the vice chair. The Rev. Chairman, in a brief and complimentary address, said that those prerent knew for what pur- pose they had assembled that day it was to present Mr.Theodore Hughes with a testimonial, on behalf of the congregation, in acknowledgment of the valu- able services he had rendered to the church. Since the illness of Mr. Young, Mr. Hughes had assumed the director of the choir, and had acquitted himself of his office not only to the satisfaction, but to the admiration also of the congregation generally. He, (the chairman) did not wish to say one word against Mr. Young, but so far as he could judge, the choir had vastly improved since Mr. Hughes had assumed the leadership. The singing was better according to the speaker's untutored ear, and the playing was better, not withstanding that the organ was out of tune. The testimonial that day was presented to him in acknowledgment of the services he had conferred upon them. The speaker concluded by observing that Mr. Hughes was now commencing a new career, and that his aspirations should be high. Those that aimed high never shot low. Whatever honor he achieved in after life, his fellow citizens would feel a kind of pride in, as being reflected on themselves, and let his motto in the future be ex- celsior. In a few well-chosen words, Mr. Hughes ac knowledged the compliment which had been paid him. The testimonial consisted of a valuable eight-day clock, cased in polished marble, and supplied by Mr. Leon, of Pier Street.
