CHURCH AND CHAPEL. On Sunday morning the Rev Alfred George Edwards, the new vicar of St Peter's, Carmarthen, was canoni- cally instituted into the living of that parish in suc- cession to the Rev D. P. Evans, the last incumbent, by the Right Rev the Bishop of St David's. The ceremony was performed at the conclusion of the morning service, the Ven. Archdeacon James being present. The sermon was preached by the Right Rev the Bishop. Canon Wynne Edwards, rector of Llanrhaiadr, died suddenly, in London, on Wednesday week. He was a son of the late Canon Edwards, Rhuddlan was edu- cated at Oxford, and was one of the ripest scholars of the Principality. Deceased was for many years rector of Meifod, Montgomeryshire, and afterwards Cuion of St Asaph's Cathedral. During the past eight years he was rector of Llanrhaiadr, Denbigh- shire, the living being of the annual value of .£900, The quarterly meeting of the Flintshire Congrega- tional union was held at IVIostyn on Tuesday, under the presidency of Mr Peet, of Rhyl, when delegates attended from Holywell, Rhyl, Bagillt, Connah's Q'lav, Buckley, and other places in the district. Upon the motion of the Rev Owen Thomas, M.A., seconded by Professor Oliver, it was decided to for- ward to Mr Gladstone, Mr Mundella, Mr Osborne Morgan, Mr J. Roberts, and Lord Richard Grosvenor, copies of a resolution expressive of dissatisfaction with the Welsh Intermediate Education Bill. The Rev. D. B. Hooke opposed the motion, contending O'LL that the people of Wales would, in the end, strangle the bill themselves. The Bishop of Bangor left the Palace Bangor, on Monday, for Bath, where he has been previously for i v some weeks under medical advice. The Welsh Baptist Union for the counties of Flint, Denbigh, and Merioneth met last week at Abergele, when about eighty ministers and delegates attended. Mr R. W. Williams, of Dolgelly, presided at the business conference, at which an increase of 300 in the membership of the churches was reported. The newly-formed church at Llysfaen was welcomed into the Union, of which the Rev H. 0. Williams, of Cor- wen, was elected chairman for next year, when the assembly will meet at Llangollen. Resolutions touching the Intermediate Education Bill ard kindred topics were passed. In addition to the usual preach- ing services, aservice was held for children, conducted by the Rev D. Williams. About five years ago the Congregationalists of Portmadoc erected a second church, as a memorial to the late Rev A. Ambrose, at a cost of < £ 5,000. Stimulated by the generous offer of Miss Morris to contribute £ 100 if other friends would give £50(), a special collection was recently made at the close of a powerful sermon by the Rev E. Horber Evans. The result was that the £ 500 were contributed and the debt reduced to £ 1.5<i0.
