DEATH OF THE REV J. SINNETT. We regret to have to announce the death of th e Rev J. Sinnett, R.D., rector of Penboyr, which sad event took place at the Rectory on Sunday morning. The deceased gentleman had attained a ripe old age. He was an honest, faithful, a.nd devoted follower of his Great Master, singularly straightforward, simple- minded, and kind-hearted. He had been for many years rector of Penboyr, the duties of which office he performed with such constant and unceasing care as to greatly strengthen the Church cause and to secure for himself the real friendship and respect of all his parishioners, irrespective of religious differences. It may be said of him that to all he was all politeness, all gentleness, and all kindness. His death will be deeply felt and mourned by a large circle of friends. LAMPETER.
