Cyfarfodydd Ordeinio yn Peny- graig a liama. Nid oes angen hysbysu davllenvryr y Reporter po lo mae Penygraig a Rama, mae'r ddall la a'r ddwy Eglwys Annibynol sydd yu ciwyn yr enwau utiiod yn cnwog yn hanes crefydd yng Nghymru. Penygraig yw y fam eglwys, fo ddiclion fod hyny yn un rheswin am y Haith fod Penygraig yn dyfod ym mlaenaf bob amsor, a Ramayn ail. Sefvdlwyd Eghvys Annibynol yn foreu yn Penygraig; cawa hanes am Mr John Davies, Ffyuondafolog, Trelech, yno o 17-12 hyd 1747, yn cvmeryd" gofal yr achos, ac yn edrych ar ol y praidd. Mewn cylch amaeth- yddol ac ar adeg mor foreu yn hanes Ym- neillduaotb, nid oedd yn bosibl i aehos newydd i fed yn gryf iawn, nid ocdd nifer yr aelodau ond 30 yn 17-18 pryd yr adeiladwyd y capel. Un Mr Milbouvn Bloom oedd y gweinidog y pryd !nvn. B|0 1757 hyd 1784, Mr Rees Davies, Canerw, oedd yn gweinidogaetbu; ac ar ei ol yntan bu Mr John Williams yn gofalu am yr eglwys. Daeth Mr David Davies wedi hyny i gymeryd gofal yr Eglwysi Annibynol yn Cydweli a Penygraig, ond yn J 795 symudodd i Treffynon. Mr Evan Evans (Llygadenwyu) myfyriwr o Cfoleg Caerfyrddin, cidaeth yn olynydd i Mr Davies, a gweithiodd YI1 cgniol hyd ei farwolaetli yn 1818. Cvmerodd Mr James Silfanus ofal yr eglwys am ychydig wedi hyn, ac wedi hyny bu Air Griffiths, Iloreb, yn dyfod i'r lie yn fisol. Yn Ebrill (20fed), 1829, urddwyd myfyriwr arall o Golog Caerfyrddin yn Penygraig, yr hwn wedi hyny a brofodd ei bun yn un o gedyrn y pulpud yng Nghymru —sef yranfarwol John Davios-neu Davies, Cwtcaman, fel yr adnabyddid ef gan bawb. Ni fagodd Cymru erioed bregetuwr mwy hyawdl ac effeithiol na Mr Davies. Wedi symudiad Mr Davies i iwmamman, rhodd- wyd gal wad i fyfyriwr arall o Goleg Caer- fyrddin—sef Mr David Evans. Wedi bod yn ddiwyd a lhvyddianus yn y lie am bedair blynedd-ar ddeg, bu fanv Mai 2 Jain, 1849. Urddwyd Mr Griffith Thomas Evans—o Goleg Aberhonddu—yn y lie yn Medi, 1851, bu ef farw yn 1852. Wedi hyn y mae yr banes yn meddiant pawb yn y cylch. gan fod llawer yn cofio dyfodiad y gweithiwr gonest, y myfyriwr caled, a'r pregethwr call—Mr Joseph Jervis —i'r lie yn 1854. Llafuriodd Mr Jervis yn y cylch hyd ddydd ei farwolaeth, Chwefior 28.J.in, 1881. Am ychydig amsor wedi marwolaeth Mr Jorvis, bu Mr Evans, Llan- boidy, yn y lie. Cawn hanes am Ysgol Sul yn Kama yn y flwyddyn 1819. Cyfeiriasom at Penygraig fel y lam oglwys," ond teg eydnabod fod rhai o aelodau Cydweli yn uno i gychwyn yr achos yn Rama. Yn Ebrill, 1842, y ffurfiwyd yr Eglwys, ac unwyd hi a Nazareth yn un weinidogaeth—dan ofal y Parch Daniel Evans. Helaethwvd y capel yn 1845, ac adeiladwyd of o'r newydd yn (871. Wedi marwolaeth Mr Evans, Nazareth, unodd Rama a Penygraig i roddi galwad i'r Parch E. Powell, Tredegar. Llafuriodd Mr Powell yn y cylch am flynyddau, hyd ei yniadawiad yn ddiweddar i gymeryd gofal Siloh, Pontardulais. Gwnaeth ef oi oreu gyda'r ddwy eglwys, a gadawodd ei gymeriad pur, a'i ymdrechion o blaid pob achos da, ddylauwad dymunol av y ddwy ardal. Yn ddiweddar, unodd y ddwy eglwys i waliodd Mr W. Emrys Lloyd, o Golog Caor- fyrddin, i gymeryd at waith y weinidogaeth yn y lie. Ni fu galwad erioed yn fwy unol, ac ni urddwyd cymeriad rhagovach erioed i gyflawnu gwaith y weinidogaeth. Y mae pob peth yn eglur ddangos fud boddlon- rwydd dwyfol yn gorphwys ar yr undeb, undeb ni liyderwn fydd yn ddedwydd, ac yn llwyddianus am hir amsor.

Mr. Lloyd Morgan on the Agricul- tural Hating Bill. SPEECH ON BEHALF OF THE TENANT FARMERS. THE FARMER'S FRIENDS DEFENDING THE LANDLORDS. On Monday night, in the House of Commo s, a tery important debate took place on an amendment to the Agricultural Land Rating Bill, whhh aimed at dividing agricultural rates between landlord and tenant. Mr Lloyd Morgan opeke strongly in favour of the amendment. He said that he had voted with the Government on the two occasions on which he had gone into the lobby on the Land Rating Bill, but they had now come to the dividing of the roads ub he .vas going to vote for the amendment. The Bill did very little for the farmer it scarcely touched the fringe of the difficulty, and now when a most reasonable amendment was proposed to divide the rates between the landlord and the tenant, ond which thus aimed aÍi making the land- lords pay something towards the losses of the tenant, they had the edifying spectaclo before them of the Tory party, who had got into power by the aid of the agricultural vote, declining to make the most reasonable concession—when those concessions happened to touch the pookets of the landlords to a email extent. He (Mr Lloyd Morgan) held the opinion that the Bill and the amendment would give some email relief to the farmers for the time being, but the only course which would secure for them ultimate and per- manent reUef would be found in security of tenure and a thorough revision of rents carried out by a fair, impartial, and competent tribunal. Mr Chaplin had stated in introducing the Bill that those who were now suffering most of all owing to agricultural depression were the landowners. He (Mr Lloyd Morgan) entirely disagreed with him. Hid experience—and he knew a good deal about tenant farmers—had led him to exactly the contrary conclusion. Fanners could not meet their liabilities at present, and the returns of the Board of Trade proved that the number of ineolveut farmers had .greatly increased during the past five years. The Board of Trade statistics gave some confirmation to the general impression that the business situation is gradually improving. But while some trades showed more or less irregular fluctuations during tho past four years, indicating conditions of alternate prosperity and depression, agriculture was one of the two occupations which showed a uniform tendency in one direction, and which indicated a progressive increase of liabilities throughout. He (Mr Lloyd Morgan) thought Mr Chaplin was entirely wrong in his view that the landlords suffered most, and he contrasted the position of the farmers, who had to face bankruptcy and ruin, with the landlords, who were merely called upon to give up some of the luxuries of life If the Government were in earnest iu the matter, they would accept the amendment. The only answer that had been given was that there were great difficulties in the way of accepting the amendment but it was the dnty and the business of the members of the Government to get over those slight difficulties. He did not believe they had tried to do so. Having got the support of the farmers, they were now turning their backs on them by refusing concessions which were both just and reasonable. In the faoe of the great depression under which agriculture was suffering, and of the condition of things to which he (Mr Lloyd Morgan) nad alluded, he thought the least thing the Government conld do would be to accept the amendment, and introduce a clause into the Bill to carry it into effect. The Tory Party then voted against the amend- ment, which was lost by a large majority. So much for the action of the "farmer's friends

Bankyfelin Sunday School is far superior this year than previous years, in their singing, reciting, and their catechising. This is due to the noble efforts of their teachers. To say the least the rev. gentle- man, Mr Thomas, who is their worthy pastor, has done everything in his power to cultivate the minds of both his senior and junior scholars. It rtfleets great credit on the part of Mr Thomas for the marks his scholars received at the annual examination which took place a few months ago. Ebenezer Sunday School is busy making prepara- tions for their annual assembly so is Gibeon* and Cana. Why not get an assembly of tho above four Sunday Schools. We are given to understand that Cana and; Bankyfelin hold one Christmas day, why don't the four join then ? It is full time for us to shake off this sectarianism, which is nothing but a cancerous disease that eats away the unison which ought to reign among us. Let not mere trifles be stumbling-blocks against any good cause so as to prevent it from being prosperous. The Superintendents of the above schools kindly take the hint. SCHPRECZT.

The Post of Crier of Quarter Sessions for Carmarthen. To the Editor of the Carmarthen Weekly Reporter. SIR,—In your account of the proceedings of the Town Council, in your last week's issue, I noticed that one of the candidates was a paid servant of the borough that is to say, he was paid weekly out of the ratepayers' money for performing his present duties. What I want to know ie, had this servant a legal right to offer his services for another job? Had he the sanction of the Board under which he is at present engaged ? When this person does ether work (sometimes for the county), who performs the work he is paid weekly for, and that by the heavily-taxed ratepayers of Carmar- then ? An answer will oblige in your next issue. Yours, &c., RATEPAYER (And a Member of the League). May 12th, 1S96. [Our correspondent evidently refers to the School Attendance Officer. It is perfectly legal for this official to undertake any work which does not interfere with the discharge of his duty to the School Board. We cannot answer as to consent, etc., having been given. It would not be required unless the officer Is required to give his whole time to the duties—which we do not believe is the caee in this instance.—ED., C. IV.JR.] [The above letter was held over last week.—ED.]

The little ones who were trained by tho head mistress (Miss Painter) gave an exhibition of tbeir school work in the shape of kindergarten games, recitations, action songs aud musical and scarf drills. In the interval Mr T. Harries gave a cornet solo with his usuil skill. Part two consisted of the old-fashioned but ever-amusing "Jarley's Waxworks." Miss Painter represented Mrs Jarley, and Mr Wm. Williams took the humorous characier of Jim the Showboy. The chair was taken on Friday evening by the Rer W. Bowen (in the unavoidable absence of Mr W. B. Dobill), and on Saturday evening by Mr J. Price formerly for many years headmaster of the schools. LLANFIHANGEL-ABERCOWIN. SCHOOL BOARD.—At a mooting of the School Board of Llanfihangel-Abercowin, which was held in the Schoolroom, Bankyfelin, on Thursday, the 14th inst., under the presidency of Mr D. Walters, Mill, the following resolution was passed —" That the Education Bill of the present Government is bad in principle, and worse in details, and if it became law in its present form would tend to hamper and cripple the school boards, and would ultimately destroy Board Schoosl; consequently, the opposition should spare no pains in mending the most objectionable sections of the Bill, particu- larly those which seem to interfere with the progress of education and the welfare of the community at large." It was further resolved to send a copy of the resolution to the sitting member, Mr Lloyd Morgan, M.P. We are very pleaeed to see the district beginning to move in this matter. It is not too much to say that Wales owes her present position ab-olutely to the Board Schools The future of Wales is threatened by this Bill, but if the schools nlready existing", HI be firmly pro- tected, we shall have na occasion to grumble.

I Ferryside and District Gossip. The following letter has been received by ite from Sir John Joy, the gentleman who wrote the letter which eppearfd in these columns recently. The real Sir John feels aggrieved because a young sprig. who resides not far from the villaga struts" about with the worthy Knigh's' feathers :— Knight's Paradise, May 19th, 1896. DEAlt Stli,-Foui-,d, Found, Found, a short time ago, near Ferry side, a mongrel cross-bred dog, retriever and setter, believed to have been seen of late in the kennel. Alike all ctossbreds, he cannot be relied upon, He scents well, especially when it tdkea the form of misrepresentation. Can be warranted a certain finder of any now laid eggs from which honour is likely to be hatched. But of late, unfortunately for him, he carried them about himself as specimens to the public, but the foul air of public assemblages and the shivery-shake carriage:of this dog soon made them rot and ob, pity some were smashed against his forehead by a young. dame, who used the staff 11 honour to whom honour is due with gtc%t alacrity. The dog seems inclined at times to answer and recognise the name Huwco, but is generally known in the locality as talcen slip," and also "LIenor Main." A few days ago he sniffed the pocket of Lily Jemima, and had scent of Sir John Joy's letter, then in her possession, which afterwards, Mr Correspondent, fell into your own hands and was published in your gossip March 27. On this scent he kept, and, at last, succeeded through the help of a brother, to secure the prey which he seemed to apprise very much, judging from the way they copied the letter one afternoon whilst fencing. I have evidence at hand that my letter has been sent, shown, and published by him, and all in his mighty name. Bravo that rotten egg smashed against his forehead was but a light punishment. Properly, he ought to ba soaked in a hogshead of rotten eggs. I have a reason for all I do, believe, or write, and can prove so by sufficient evidence, for thank God, there are a few besides Huwco that can speak the truth. Hence the letter referred to was simply a note received by me by the previous post, and answered by the following. I, as its real author, never thought it would ever see public light, neither did I deem it worthy. Well, if "LIQnor Main did so much of such a paltry thing what would he do if he had the grip of a master- piece composition from the facile pen and fertile brain of Sir John Joy. But this is not the first time that he has tried to play Reynard-s part with this person, having sent two letters in succession proposing matrimony in the name of a young lady from the village. But he has-,partners in the tran- saction, one of whom was the son of a rev. silver- headed gentleman, and the other—a fool. But I must not forget to temper justice with mercy even in dealing with Lienor Main." For once upon a time, when perched upon the pinacle of his glory he clipped off 36 half-pennies, the first prize awarded for an essay at the Sunday School he attends. It must, however, be borne in mind thit Ferryside has reared some excellent essay writing wrestlers, to whom Lienor "-but I better let he curtain fall here, and I will close my epistolary communica- tion with an exhortatory remark, which is to bear in mind that it is qllie as much of a sin to break the 8th commandment as to break the 9tb. Well, old boy, just take my paw, we will etill be friends -yr hwn y mac y tid yn ei geryddu, y mae efe yn ei garu. Yours, etc., IR JOHN JVï. The above is such a "weighty" epistle that my readers must be satisfied with it alono this week. DIDYMCS DODS.

A Gocd Ideal Tradesman compared to a Beautiful Oak. THESE FEW LINES WERE WRITTEN ON MAY 7TH, He is cot a birch but heart of oak In principle, tone and brain Through youth and manhood to old age This oik he will retain. This oak is beautiful all through, In foliage, form and heart, When finely polished it is a gem A gem in every part. Like heart of oak he stands the test It's best in Merchandise In trade he always plays the man And this grandly wise. In politics he has no tricks, He is radically right In hiding colours, with their spleen With grace, all out of eight. o may he last like heart of oak In talk and deeds and brain, And his descendants to the last All follow in his train. Ere his career here below Reaches its earthly span, May many years be in store For this good, gentle, man. When God ordains all eartbly ties To snap for ever here, o may he last in heavenly bliss Immortal, oaken dear. A living oak, eternal oak, An oak so full of bloom, Where all is oaken and to last Beyond this land of gloom. May God protect his offspring dear To steer through this life And also guide, and help and bless Hie dear loving wife. Through life and death may Jesus grant Them all a clear sky, Until they meet in Summer-land In everlasting day. J. G. THOMAS.

Mr Thomas, of the Twyn Farm, conducting the singing with his usual ability* I Mr H. Davies (Eryr Glyn Cothi), the active superintendent of the Sunday School, did his part splenelidly in arranging all the details. The meeting proved beyond a doubt that there is any amount of young talent here awaiting developement.

NATIONAL UNION OF TKACHEUS. — The South Wales District Union held its annual meeting this year at the Copper Works Board School, Llanelly, on Saturday week. Two meetings were held, one at 11.30 for teachers, and a public meeting at o o'clock. There was a large attendance of teachers from all parts of South Wales. Mr C. H. Moore, secretary of the West Yorks District Union, and Ex-President of the National Federation of Class Teachers, attended at great personal inconvenience, as did also Mr Brockingtou, B.A., Cardiff. these gentlemen delivered excellent addresses on the Education Bill. which, it is needless to say. were greatly appreciated. Mr Tom John, Llwynpia, was unavoidably abse»k. The officers elected for the ensuing year were :— President, Mr J. Evans, Hafod vies "president, Mr Jenkins, Swansea secretary, Mr C. Willmot, Cardiff. A very hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the. retiring officers and committee. The afternoon meeting was of a most enthusiastic character. The largest room in these excellent schools was filled to over flowing. Some had to be content in the cloak- room, and others in the surrounding classrooms. The chair was taken by Mr Howell, the esteemed chairman of the Llanelly School Board. All the resolutions from the Executive cf the N.U.T., dealing with the "Education Bill," which were submitted to this meeting, were carried unanimously. Addresses were given by the followicg gentlemen Rev Elfet Lewis. Rev Roger Williams, Llanelly Messrs Moore and Brockmgton, N.U.T. Messrs Howell, Gwilym Evans, Edmunds (solicitor), J. A. Williams (Guardian), aud Joues, Llanelly Messrs Roberts and Davies, Swansea and Mr Walters, Merthyr. An excellent tea was provided for the visitors by the Llanelly teachers, who spared no trouble to make the meetings successful. The day's proceedings were terminated with a "social."
The Rev. W. Thomas, Whitland, and his Churches. ANOTHER PRESENTATION. As we announced in our report of the presenta- tion made to the Rev W. Thomas, at Whitland, another presentation of a similar kind took place at Bethel, Llanddewi- Veltrey, on the 6th inst. Mr E H. James, Pontygaftl, presided and there were also present :—Rev L. James, Brynybank Rev D. E. Williams, Henllan Rev J. Williams, Cartan Mr Isaac Phillips, Lletty Mr J. John, Castcll; Mr Kvan John, Dryslwynfach Mr W. Thomas, Spring Gardens Mr Scourfield, Board School; Mr 1). Evans, Bristol House; Mr John Evans, Bankysaeson, &:0. The Chairman in opening the proceedings spoke of the good feeling and harmony which had always existed between the Church at Bethel and their beloved pastor for the long space of forty years. Such good feeling waa most essential to the success of the ministry and the career of the Church during the Rev W. Thomas's pastorate was a high testimony to the harmonious feeling which had prevailed all round as well as the earnestness which the rev. gentleman had thrown into the discharge of the duties of his sacred calling. The purse of gold which they were m<,t to present to their pastor was but a small taken of the esteem in which he was held by them.—After other speeches had been delivered in similar terms, Mr John Evans presanted the Rev W. Thomas with an elaborate-woiked puree of sovereigns. The Rev W. Thomas was evidently affected in rising to reply. He said :—I feel thankful to the Churches and friends of all denominations, far and near, for contributing so generously towards my testimonials. Many of the subscribers are unknown and unknowable to me personally. I have to thank God, above all, for Church increase Bethel is more than double the number it was in 18-35, although the population of the parish is much less also, for sparing my life till now. and for enabling me to discharge my duties rpgalarly for 40 years and four monthp, without missing a Sunday. "By the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not ("uud vaiu. But I laboured abundantly, yet, not I, but the grace of God which was with me." I feel ju&t like Paul to night, when he wrote his Epistle to the Church at Philippi, which had sent him several presents, lie thought very highly of their kindneey, on account of its bweet-smeliing odour here, and the satisfation it gave to God— a sacrifice acceptable, well-plcasing to Ged" You will agree with me (1) That I have been active during my ministerial curecr No one can charge me with idleness and indifference, either temporally or spiritually. (2) Tint I have been a consistent advocate of popular rights. I believe, therefore. I spoke fearless) y and plainly, irrespeo- tite cf all possible and certain consequences to me personally. (8) That I have been an ardent advocate of justice all round—to the classes as well as the masses. (4) That I have taken my humble part in the agitation for religious equality among Nonconformist aud Conformist denomina- tions. This must &nd will be realised in the near future in our kingdom and the whole world. (.ï) I have endeavovred to be 1. yal to my convictions, which have bean sacred to me—pla>u hints from above as to the direction of my life, as to the part which I should invariably tuke in public move- ments, and as qualifications to act for or against, as cases might require. I believe I have been loyal to New Testament Christianity, Jeeus of Nazarech and Calvary, in and cut of the pulpit. In conclusion, you will allow ma to state that I hope henceforth, to the end of my curcer, to do everything better than ever by the kind sympathies, prayers, and cp?operations of my churches, and especially by the rich blessings of God (applause). Several appropriate musical selections weie rendered by the choir under the leadership of Mr B. Jones. The meeting waa clo&ad with prayer.
LLANGADOCK. A VESTRY MEETING was held at the Magistrates' room on the 8th inst. The chair was occupied by Mr Kees, the Vicar, who, in a long speech, did his best to satisfy the numerous ratepayers assembled that the rilih churchwarden heel only parochial business to attend to, but Mr Davies would rot give iu. Major Tudor Lloyd Harries proposed Mr Fred Phillips. Caerhyn, as churchward n, and Mr Jackson seconded. GtitlUlu, fturrey Home, proposed Mr Davies, Cwrtyplas, and Mr Protheroe seconded. The members then divided, when the numbeis were:—For Mr Phillips, 30 for Mr Davies 21; majority for Mr PhiUips, 6. Mr Davids :\1, once yave notice that he demanded a fiesh poll, which we understand will be granted. QUEUES AND PKEDICTJONS. — Perhaps some of the numerous readers of your paper will kindly reply to a few questions. Is the Vicar compelled through law to choose his Warden in a vestry assembled—and that yearly ? Who will have to bear the expense of another vestry, and how long after notice is given must the second vestry take place r "We trust that we shall not see in Lian- gs d ick again what we Boreiy witnessed last Vestry meeting. A certain gentlemau put in force little short of the old" screw." Fiiends, let all be done above board. When the said gentleman seeks office himself, we have but little hesitation in predicting that the last veBtry meeting will be remembered. CADIIVBV'S COCOA is not only a stimulating and refreshing drink, it is also a nutritious food, probably more nourishing than any other beverage. Cadbury's is absolutely pure—no alkalies being used as in many of the so-called pure foreign Cocoas.
