ABERYSTWYTH GRAMMAR SCHOOL. The semi-annual distribution of prizes to the suc- cessful students at the Aberystwyth Grammar School took place on Tuesday, December 19th, 1871. The school was examined on the previous Thursday and Friday by the Ilevds. Dr. Charles and Ashtun Jones. At the close of each day's examination the boys of the school were highly complimented by the examiners for the intelligence and understanding showed in the respective branches of education in which they had been taught. They also impressed upon them the superiority of the system of education which aimed at accuracy in teaching. They were glad to find in examining that accuracy and care was a distinctive feature of this school. The close competition between the boys also went far to show that they were well looked after, especially when hardly one could be found who was unable to solve the questions proposed to him. The examiners' marks and positions of the boys at the close of the examination corresponded fairly with their marks and positions in their respective classes during the last half-year. It may be added that this is the only school in town where boys can receive a good training in Hebrew in addition to classics, modern languages, and mathematics. On the following Tuesday his worship the Mayor of Aberystwyth, Thomas Jones, Esq., gave the boys their well-earned prizes. In a very able address to the boys he spoke many words of encouragement and good advice, exhorting them to aim high in life, and showing that the present opportunities are invaluable to form the man. He then proceeded to distribute the prizes in the following order:- FIRST CLASS—1. Lewis Richards; 2. Thomas James 3. Rogers and R. Jones. SECOND CLASS—1. Robert Peake; 2. J. C. Hughes; 3. T. W. Garner; 4. O. J. Evans 5. Julian and Edwards 6. G. H. Price. THIRD CLASS—1. H. J. Davis 2. T. K. Tointon 3. Bennett; 4. Mcliquham 5. Price. Cheers called for the mayor for his kindness in presiding, which was heartily responded to, brought the proceedings to a close. The following is an extract of a letter received from Mr J. E. Hughes, the son of John Hughes, Esq Lledrod, who passed successfully the examina- tion of the Royal College of Surgeons since the last Midsummer examination. He was a private pupil of this school. Glasgow, Nov. 5th, 1871. MY dear Mr Roberts, -1 feel proud that I was recommended to come to you to prepare for my examination. Before I had been many days under you, I found you had the happy knack of teaching combined with untiring zeal. I endeavour to carry out your recommendation—to pay great attention to my Greek and Latin Grammars. I see more and more the importance of your good advice of attaining a good knowledge of the composition and construction of Greek and Latin. I find the study of these languages very much easier when they are studied systematically. I look back with pleasure and a great deal of satisfaction on the progress I made under you in my classics and mathematics. The great care and pains you took in preparing me fully surprised me. I shall always strongly recommend your school to my friends iu whose welfare I shall feel interested. Hoping the school is going on well and wishing you great success,-l remain, dear sir, your obedient student, JUHN E. HUUIIJJS. Mr Hughes is a very promising young gentleman, and is likely to attain to some eminence in his pro- fession.
