CoNFmMATiON.—On Wednesday morning the ceremony of confirmation was celebrated at St. Miehael's chnrch, by the Lord Bishop of St. David's. There were over 150 candidates, including both sexes, 80 of that nnmber beiug from the town alone, and the remainder from Llangorwen, Benparke, Llanbadarn, &c. The litany was read by the Rev. Chancellor Phillips, and a hymn was sung, after which the Bishop addressed the congregation on the importance of the step they were about to take. He said there was an erroneous idea afloat that confirmation was a snperstitous ceremoncy, that by the laying of hands they professed to impart the Holy Ghost. Another idea was that on being confirmed the candidate took on himself tha burden of his own sins, which his god-parents had borne for him hitherto. That was a very common idea, but none the less absurd. No one short of Christ himself could be responsible foranother man's sins. With a few other remarks the Bishop concluded by addressing the congregation in Welsh. The ceremony of confirmation was then gone through, after which the Bishop again briefly addressed his hearers, and a hymn having been sung, the servico terminated.
