THE BISHOP OF LLANDAFF AT BROMSGROVE. On Tuesday there was a large gathering of clergy, gentry and ladies at the Grammar School of King Edward VI., Bromsgrove, on the occasion of the opening of a new hall, library, and othei buildings, erected by subscriptions for the accom- modation of the increased number of pupils at the school. The company included the Lord Bishop of Worcester the Ven. Archdeacon Lewis, Bishop- designate of Llandaff; the head-masters of Birmingham, Canterbury, and Uppingham Schools, the local clergy of Worcester, the patrons of the school, and others. The proceedings commenced with service in the school chapel, when an appro- priate sermon was preached by the Rev. G. J. Blore, of Canterbury, late head-master of tha school. The company then adjourned to the new hall, and in welcoming the old Bromsgrovians Mr. H. Millington, the head-master, specially welcomed the Ven. Archdeacon Lewis, the newest Bishop 3n the Bench, an old Bromsgrovian, was now received in his old school the first words of welcome, expressions which were received with liaarty applause. Mr. Millington gave the history of the new Bishop, and the new buildings were then- declared open by the Bishop of Worcester. Archdeacon LEWIS, who was received most heartily, was called upon to address the company. Ho said he responded with great pleasure to tha call to address a few words in behalf of the Old Bromsgrovians, becauso his presence had given him the opportunity of witnessing the gratifying proceedings of that most interesting occasion. The invitation from Mr. Milhngton reached him it the time when he was overwhelmed with the contemplation of the responsi- bility of the great and important work he had just undertaken, and he thought, with that responsibility resting upon him, he could not iccept the invitation, but it presented to him the prospect of such intense pleasure that he soon accepted it. (Loud applause.) The pleasure he had derived was threefold. He had the pleasure of visiting the old school in which he had passed four years and a half of the best time of his life; next, he had the pleasure of shaking hands with many of his old friends; and thirdly, he had the pleasure of witnessing the marks of great improvements in the school which he had seen that dav. (Applause.) It was just forty years ago that month since he came a boy of fourteen to that school, and when he told them that there were only fifteen boys in the school, that there were then only-five studies, and all the furniture they possessed was a deal table and a chair, they would see what a marked improvement there was I in the school. There was then no beautiful cbapel in which to meet and worship God such as they had now, and that they would see was anothee sign of improvement since 40 years ago. The opening of the new building that day showed signs of advancement which were cheering and delightful, and he was persuaded that this was the beginning of another year of prosperity for the dear old school. (Loud ap- plause.) He had already briefly alluded to the life before him, and he would conclude by asking them all—the boys as well as the elders-to think of him in their prayers. The Bishop concluded amidst hearty cheers, and departed to catch a train for London. Several other speakers addressed the assem- blage, and the proceedings then terminated.
