On Monday evening, the 10th ult., a large meeting was held at Sharon Chapel, Tredegar, for t.ie purpose of presenting Mr Evan Jones, the late minister, with different testimonials on his resigning the pastorate. Prayer having been offered the chair was taken by Mr. Llewellyn Williams, the senior deacon ot the church, who addressed the meeting in a speech remark- able for its depth of feeling, power, and truly natural eloquence The meeting was then successively addressed by Mes.-rs John Harris, Sirhowy; Daniel Jones, A.iuiam- N Stephens, Sirhowy; John Price, Ruinnev; Lewis Powell", Cardiff; W. Williams, Tredegar; and J. Ridge, Kendle. All the speakers testified their great respect for the activity, sin- cerity, integrity, and ability which Mr. Jones had always displayed, and deeply lamented his removal from the Princi- pality, and their earnest wish for his speedy return. In the course of the proceedings, the following testimonials were presented hiin :—By Messrs.

By Mrs. Evans and Miss Anne Jones, for the women of Tre- degar—a splendid mahogany writing desk, with a purse of gold.

JANUAHY 10, 1848." Mr. Jones returned thanks in a short speech, in which he ex- pressed his deep regret that ill health rendered it necessary for him to leave a people whom he so cordially esteemed.' He briefly recapitulated his own history, and expressed his grati- tude to the kind friends who had testified so unequivocally their approval of his conduct. They had seen him enjoying all the happiness of life, and afterwards in the furnace ot affliction, and surrounded by the sorrows of death. He loved his country, and he would ever remember with pleasure his defence of his virtuous countrywomen. He concluded by shaking hands with the chairman, as the representative of tlJe meeting, and im- plored the blessing of heaven to rest on all present.
