B 0 D F A RY-. VALE OF CLWYD MONTHLY MEETING. THE monthly Presbytery of the Vale of Clwyd Calvinistic Methodists was held oa January 21st, the Moderator being the Rev. Francis Jones, Abergele. There was a large attendance of presbyters. The retiring Moderator, Mr. Goronwy Jones, Prestatyn, gave his valedictory ad dress, in which he directed attention to se- veral matters bearing upon the meeting of the Presbytery, such as the lack of punctu- I ality on the part of many members who, whilst the introductory service was proceed- ing, were usually smoking or strolling along the roads, and the tendency in some districts to dispense with the preaching services which in the days of their fathers formed a conspicuous feature and a great charm of the presbytery meetings. The retiring secretary (the Rev. D. R. Griffiths, Rhyl), handed over his office to his successor, the Rev. Robert Williams, Towyn. Thanks were given to the retiring officers. Much satisfaction was felt when the re- port was given from the various district meetings stating that friends had been ap- pointed in the several churches to assist the officers in the search after any who were known to neglect the Sunday school and other services of the sanctuary in their res- pective localites, a report of the work done to be made to the Presbytery every six months. An address on family religion was given by the Rev. Robert Richards, Rhyl. The speaker laid great stress on the several fea- tures of home religion, such as teaching, family prayers, and example. Mr. T. R. Rees's call to the pastorate of the Ruthin English Church was confirmed, and the Rev. Lewis Ellis was appointed to represent the Presbytery at his induction. So also was Mr. W. Edward's call to the pas- torate of the church at Tremeirchion con- firmed. Mr. Peter Roberts reported that the For- eign mission ccllection f the Presbytery for the year ending December 31st last, amoun- ted to £536, the largest sum ever collected within the bounds. Votes of condolence were passed with the relatives of the late Mr. Owen Jones (Voel), and Mr. Roberts (Foxhall), a1' J sympathy Was expressed with Mr. Hugh Parry (Ben- larth, Abergele) in his affliction.
