PENDINE. ON Thursday of last week the Rev. D. M. Benjamin, on leaving Trinity Church, Abertil- lery, was presented with a purse of gold and 20 vols. of the" Expositor's Bible" (a work now issued on the Books of the Bible by the foremost scholars of the age). For some time past the rev. gentleman has been suffering from an affection of the throat, and on this account has been obliged to resign the pastorate of his church. The presentation was made by Mr D. J. Michael, who spoke in the most felicitous terms of Mr Benjamin as a man and as a minister.âA meet- ing was held also at the residence of the Rev. Rhys Harries, Congregational minister, for the purpose of wishing him" God-speed," when an address was presented him by the Nonconformist ministers of the town.âDuring the two years Mr Benjamin laboured in Abertillery he was most successful, and did what he could to bring about and intensify brotherly love among all the sections of the Christian church. Churchmen and Dissenters of all grades, Catholics and Jews, found him a friend, and all expressed their deep regret at his departure from their midst. It may be said that the foremost Churchmen of the town contributed to the testimonial, as well as all the Nonconformist ministers. ENTERTAINMENT. On Friday evening last we were most highly entertained by an excellent magic lantern exhibition at the Tremoilet Memorial National School. The subjects were instructive, interesting and amusing, and so judiciously managed as to gain the frequent plaudits of the audience, and held them in wrapt attention throughout the evening but apart from the general amusement caused by the comic characters, the hearty lively laughter of the little ones was quite a treat in itself. At the close of the magic lantern exhibition, the "little ones," led by Miss Boyer, gave us a rendering, in very good style, of one of their school songs, and we feel sure they only require to be brought out a little oftener, to become a little choir of which we might well feel proud. We trust the parents will think of this, and encourage singing at home, so as to cultivate and improve the voice. Finally, we were charmed by the melodious sounds of a fine peal of bells, which were managed in masterly style. The Rev Henry Jones, of Eglwyscummin, in eulogistic terms, then pro- posed a vote of thanks to the kind gentleman and young lady, who had done so much to entertain them. This was readily seconded, and carried, with great fervour. Three hearty cheers were then given for the young lady, who had so strongly shown the sincere desire, which is certainly inherent in the family, to do all the good she could by bravely facing a long jourqey in such severe weather as we experienced lst Friday, rather than allowing a good cause to suffer for want of cheerful help. We trust she may long be spared in health and strength, and that such commendable sentiments may always prompt her actions. The singing of the National Anthem brought a most enjoyable evening to a close. We should state that the proceeds are to be devoted towards giving prizes for best attendance, &c., at our Sunday School.
