PRESENTATION TO A PEN- ARTH ENGINEER. On Wednesday evening last a number of engineers employed on the Penarth Slipway as- I sembled at the Ship Hotel to present the late foreman, Mr William Munroe, who has left to take charge of the Windsor Slipway, with a testimonial, as a token of the kind feeling which existed between him and his late colleagues. Mr Saves presided, and, after dinner, served in Mr Jack James' well-known style, the presenta- tion was made. Those present included Messrs McArthur, Patterson, Illingworth, Sims, Pavey, T. Morley, William Morris, E. Thomas, J. Smith, H. Wright. H. Wood, F. Gibson, J. Russell, H. Tutton, J. Thomas, J. Owens, &c. In making the, presentation, which consisted of a handsome com- bination clock and weather-guage, Mr Patterson said it would be useless for him to enlarge upon the circumstances which had called them together. The part allotted to him was one which afforded him great pleasure, having been connected with Mr Munroe for fourteen years. His experience of him throughout the whole of that time was that he was kind and considerate to all under him, and the balance had to be very delicately held. where therejwere numbers of men of all classes to be ruled. Mr Munroe had always discharged his duties with much kindness, great consideration, and forbearance, and he believed there was not a man on the works who did not regard that occasion with sorrow, but at the same time rejoiced ab Mr Munroe's promotion. (Hear, hear.) They all looped he would be long spared to enjoy the society of his friends, and that he would be equally successful in his new enter- prise. (Applause.)—Mr Munroe returned thanks, and slid he would always look upon the present with feelings of great pleasure. He had taken a very important step, and he would have to work hard, but he was not afraid to do so. (Applause ) -Other toasts followed, and the enjoyment of the proceedings was enforced by songs.
