AN AWKWARD IMMERSION AT PENYFAI. I" They believe in "baptism by immersion" (writes a correspondent) even in such an out-of- the-way place as Penyfai, and believe in it mind you with a firmness so immobile as to put all other immersion devotees into the shade. Last Sunday afternoon a large crowd gathered at Smyrna Chapel and thence wended their way to the brink of the river Ogmore, to see if perchance salvation might be found some fatigued souls out of the nauseous propertyjof that hot-bed of valley sewerage. The minister (Rev W. E. Ha rris) took up the usual poeition of dignity by the river sidej and after the usual formalities had been duly observed the business of the day was pro- ceeded with. It had not gone far before an un- savomy incident marred the even tenour of the administrator's way--All the more unsavoury because it was the first time for Mr Harris to per- form such ceremony. It so happened that one of the young ladies in the act of finding salvation slipped in the river, and no doubt, fearing lest the billows might sweep her out of existence, clutched hold of the Rev gentleman with both her hands with such vigour that he also fell in and under- went a second immersion. Accounts differ as to the precariousness of this aquatic adventure, but one thing is certain-the pastor of Smyrna will not soon obliterate from his memory the incident that attended his first appearance by the water's edge as a riparian gospel-teacher.
