ARCHDEACON'S VISITATION. The Venerable R. W. P. Davies, Archdeacon of Brecon, held his annual visitation at the Priory Church, Brecon on Tuesday last. There was a large attendance of the clergy and churchwardens of the archdeaconry. Choral service was held at the church at 11 o'clock. The Rev. John Jones, curate, intoned the service. The first lesson was read by the Rev. Herbert Williams, Vicar of Bre- con, and the second lesson by the Rev. G. B. Sharpe, curate. The secretary called over the names of the clergy, after which, the Archdeacon delivered his charge to the clergy and churchwar- dens. He expressed his gratification at seeing so many present. In his charge the Archdeacon re- ferred to the desirability of proper and suitable, ves- sels being provided for the celebration of the Holy Communion, that in former years the same had been much neglected, but during the past ten or twelve years or so a vast improvement had taken place. He also dwelt upon the necessity of fre- quently celebrating the Holy Communion. The Archdeacon eulogized the efforts of the clergy who had during the past few years succeeded in resto- ring so many churches, and suggested the desira- bility of forming a church building society for the archdeaconry. He also spoke upon the question of ritualism, and deprecated much the practices of the extreme ritualists. The Archdeacon stated the propriety of keeping the churchyard fences in repair, and preventing the Icliiirellyird being depastured by horses or cattle under any circumstances. The names of the churchwardens were then called over, and the list of licenses to non-resident incumbents read, upon which the meeting terminated. A Lunchoon was afterwards served up at the Castle Hotel. The Venerable Archdeacon presided, and John Thirlwall, Esq., vice chairman. Upwards of 40 of the clergy besides some of the church- wardens were present. The customary toasts were given, the health of the Lord Bishop was drank. The Rev. Garnons Williams proposed in eulogistic terms the health of the Archdeacon. The healths of the Rural Deans, coupling the name of the Rev. David Parry, and the health of the Vicar of Brecon and other toasts followed.
