e Carmarthen Literary and Scientific Institution. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting was held in t'le Rerdmg Room [ on Tuesday eveuing. Principal Evans presided. Professor Moore, in moviug the adoption of the committee's report, said that although it was gratifying to find that so many young people attended the Reading room still if those who were juso emerging hvm boyhood into manhood were *0 be brought into terms of greater intimacy thau .'hey were now, a movement would have to be initiated outsido the Institution, as tho mero fact meeting in a Reading-room was not sufficient..• /e was one portion of the. con nr'ttec's work to which he wished more particularly to n fer, and that was that which dealt with the attempt which had been made to found a class for modern languages. The services of an able teacher had been secured—Dr Schwartz, ot Narberth—and it was advertised in the local press that he was prepaied to conduct classes in German, Spanish, French, and Italian. Dr Schwartz had been ready to conduct the classes for his mere out-of-pocket expenses, so that the fees would be mnely nominal. Although these facts were widely advertised, less than a dozen persons had sent in their names M applications for admissiou to the classes. Ihe responsibily for the failure could not, at any rate, be laid at the door of the committee they bad, at any rate, done their best. Mr T. E. Brigstocke moved a vote of thanks to tna committee and the chairman. He had great diffidence in moving this, as some of tbe members had attended better than others, and he was one of those who had attended the worst.
