RITUALISM AT MOUNTAIN ASH. OUT-SPOKEN REMARKS BY THE REV. J. R. HOSBONS. At St. Margaret's Church, on Sunday evening last, the Rev. J. R. Hosbons preached -his farewell sermon to a large congregation nrior to his leaving the town for Melincrythan, a small but populous village situa- ted between Neath and Briton Ferry. The reverend gentleman, who is very popular at St. Margaret's, took as his text the following words Building up yourselves on your most holy faith. Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life." The discourse was listened to with rapt attention throughout, and was delivered in an excellent manner SO characteristic of the preacher, who, towards the end of the sermon, held forth with powerful effect the full force of the text. The reverend gentleman referrod in very feel- ing terinf to his labours amongst them for over three year?. He also begged them, in the words of the text, to remember their faith, which was Holy," and not be led away by those which he knew to be amongst them, and who were trying their best to introduce Roman Catholicism into their midst. There were some, he was sorry to say, in the Church of England at Mountain Ash who preferred the Crucifix to the Crucifixion. He had been called a Primitive Methodist preacher by fome within St. Margaret's Church, but be that as IT may, he had always endea- voured to preach to them* the truth, and to do his duty faithfully. His concluding sentences were gi ven with much warmth and telling effect. He exhorted his hearers to be up and doing, and always on the watch to protect the body of Christ, which had been very beautifully likened by the Saviour Himself to the Church.
