(Edinburgh), the senior assistant medical officer, who has just tendered his resignation, having determined to commence private practice at Barry, near Cardiff.—Mr W. Morgan Griffiths was voted to the chair, and said that in Mr Powell they had found an able medical practi- tioner, whose medical skill was of groat practical utility to those he then saw before them. He had also been of invaluable aid and assistance to those who were responsible for the maintenance of that large Institution. Dr. Hoarder would, he felt sure, much regret the loss of Dr. Powell. —Dr. Powell, who was much affected, said, in the course of his remarks, that he much regretted that his sense of duty had compelled him at that period of his life to choose a new home and he was very sorry to part with those who had shown him so much kindness.—Mr Benjamin Thomas, head male attendant, and Rev.

Dr. Hearder next spoke, and said that it was with great sorrow he had to say good-bye to Dr. Powell, who had been a valuable assistant to him during the whole of the time be (Dr. Powell) had been at the Asylum. Dr. Hearder paid the highest compliment to his medical know- ledge and surgical ability, and stated that the inhabitants of Barry might well feel proud of having so good a man settling amongst them. He wished Dr. Powell that prosperity and success which he was sure he would always continue to deserve by reason of his qualities as a medical man and his kindness of disposition and purity of life.
