Archdeacon Lewis. On coming out of the church the members pro- ceeded to the field, where some 200 partook of a knife and fork tea. The remainder of the day was spent in amusement, there being an ex- cellent programme of sports, balloon ascents, dancing and pyrotechnic display, Mr. Farrell's elcetric light, hobby horses, &c.
