N ATIONAL tfciroors.-We extract the following from the Chester Parish Ungiizwe for November, premising that Mr Chsrles Jtr.scins, is the eldest son of the late Mr Joseph Jenkins, formerly clerk of St Mnry's, in this to-n Mr Charles Jenkins, nearly sixteen years master of these school?, is under the necessity of resigning his charge into other ) ands, through the exigencies of failing health. Mrs Jenkins will for the present retain her position as schoolmistress, while her husband, at the recommendation of his medical adviser, proceeds on a voyage to Australia, in tie prayer/ul hope that its results mny be beneficial. The value of Mr Jenkins' services is best known by their result?, often favourably noticed by Her Majesty's Inspectors, and it is believed that many of the rising youth of Chester, wbo have been under his instruction, will remember with gratitude the pains he has taken to promote their educational advance- in ei t.

S. 0 Rfpares, the respected minister of St. Martin's, which rnolancholy event occurred on Saturday morning, at his residence in this town. The rev gentleman had 10nl( suffered from a painful iilness, which was of so i-frious a nature that Flight hopes were entertained of Iris ultimate recovery. The rev gentleman was greatly beloved hv his parish- ioners, and universally respected by christians of all denominations. His exemplary piety and his readiness TO Assist in any good work, made him one of the most valuable and useful of our townsmen, while his exceeding m euness and amiability of character won the esteem and regard of all wi!h whom he came in contact. His labours as a clergyman were exceedingly onerous and he performed them with a fidelity and cheerfulness 'that excited the wonder as well as the admiration of his fnenris. In addition to the curacy o! Saint Martin's, he he;d the livings of Uxfra.t&n ¡,nd Boul&ton, and wa', fllso chaplain of the county gaol; and the duties of th..sf several ofifces were performed with unerring regularity ana with an energy that seemed almost inexhaustible H" was never in discharging the tiutie-3 of his sacred CaUug, and luerc is little doubtthat the exocg^iyg {^. hours he had^underffore induced the painful illness that "lerthiilated his Useful and brilliant career. The zeal with which he worked in aid of the restoration of Saint Martin's Church will be long remembered by his parishioners with affectionate gratitude: the work, as most of our readers fire aware, was accomplished in the face of great difficulties, and the slowness with which it advanced was a source of great anxiety to the faithful clergyman; but he worked on with untir.n« energy, and the building in its restored fOrll1 wil: now be a lasting monument 0' his worth and goodness. Many of the worshippers at that church—the most. ancient of our sacred edirices-will call to mind the joy he manifested when it waa reopened for Divine worship, and he was enabled agatn to address his concregration from the pul- pit he so long and worthily occupied. Ever ready with words of kind counsel, he was also a generous and checr- lul giver. In his death, the poor have lost a warm- hearted Ilnd stedfast friend: his parishioners a faithful and indefatigable pastor, and Haverfordwest one of the best and purest men ever numbered among its citizens.
