Presbyterian College, Carmarthen.…



LEAVING CEIITUICATE. The ordinary certiticate was Riven to Rhys T Williams, E Walter Thomas, Tydwal R Davies, William Lloyl, Samnel Williams, and a certificate of Honour to T Gwilym Jones, all six having completed the full course. Professor Jones said that he could only say to Mr Marshall as the North Wales people said to visitors "TIrysiwch yma oto (' Make haste to come here again.") Regarding the departure of Professor Moore thero was but ono sentiment amongst the College btaft-ttiat of unallayed regret at the loss, as these had not sinca his appointment boon tho slightest friction amongst the professors in the college. The Chairman at this point road a copy of the letter which had been forwarded by tho Presbytoriau Board to Professor Moore on receiving his resignation. The Board expressed their regret at Professor Moore's decision and testified to the excellent manner in which he had discharged his duties during the ten years of his con- ZD y nection with the College. ZD Professor Moore said that although he looked forward to revisitiug Carmarthen, still it could not be otherwise than painful to Stiver even temporarily the friendships which had bound him to Carmarthen during tho last ten years. IVIten lie con- sidered all the subjects he had taught during his connection with the College- chemistry, mathematics, English in all its periods from Anglo-Saxon downwards, German, Greek Testament, Hebrew, Bible Introduction, etc.-ho sometimes thought that ho must have been very clever to teach all those things (laughter). But he had hoard of a gentleman who said he did not see how one could not teach all that one could learn and perhaps in that light his performance was not very remarkable (laughter). Ho believed the Presbyterian College had a great future before it. The recent change in the curriculum had placed it in that current which was setting in Wales towards greater proficiency in educational preparation for the ministry. With that tendency in Wales ho thoroughly sympathised he believed that the establish- ment of the three University Colleges, and latterly of the University of Wales, would be to the utmost benefit of the Principality in the future. Rev W. Thomas (Whitland) said he had not thought that he would have had to pay e, the first tine as chairman of the Congre- ZD gational Union at that meeting. He was 1 11 glad to find in the speech of Mr Fletcher Williams that the principles of the Liberation Society were so prominent; and if it were not that he was so modest he would, as agent of the society, have gone round to solicit subscriptions. He believed that by the 90-operation of the Presbyterian Board with the Churches in Wales that the future of the college would be even greater than its past. The meeting was closed with prayer by the Rev W. Thomas.
