The CHAIRMAN said the Governing Body had promised at the last meeting to throw the examina- tions open to Dr Williams's School and could not now go behind that promises.

ABERAYRON. I GOIXG TO THE SHOW. —A good number from Aberayron and the vicinity joined the excursion train at Lampeter on Tuesday to go to Swansea to see Barnum's great show. CYMANFA.—The Independents held their cymanfa on Thursday, the 14th June, at Peniel Chapel. The Sunday Schools of Peniel, Neuaddlwyd, Mydroilyn, and Llwyncelyn assembled and they were examined by the Revs Lewis Evans, Y Wig E. Evans. Lampeter J. T. Parry, Cilcennin and J. M. Prydderch. Sermons were delivered in the evening by the Revs Lewis Evans and J. M. Prydderch. The attendances were large and much good work was found to have been done by the schools. ARERAYRON BOYS.—The Rev T. B Thomas of Monroe, New York, Presbyterian minister, has just received the degree of D.D. from the Univer- sity of New York. He is a brother to Mrs Bennet Jones, Pant-teg, of this town. He has visited his native town many times and is an intellectual and powerful preacher. Captain D. Lloyd, Island House, is at home for a month's furlough. Some few years ago, the steamer which he commanded, the "South Cambria" (Ratcliff and Co.) was sent on a time charter, to trade between New York and Cuba. At the expiration of the charter, the brokers at New York offered to buy a steamer if he took the command. He agreed and the s.s. "Arcadia," 3,200 tons, was purchased and he has been in com- mand of her ever since. She was employed as a transport ship during the American-Spanish war. In the course of the war, Captain Lloyd was em- ployed also as pilot on board the warship "St Louis," his services being requisitioned by General Brookes, as he was known to the author- ities as a skilled navigator, with a large experience of the seas and coasts of Puerto Rico and Cuba. He was present at the bombardment of St John, Puerto Rico. The New York and Porto Rico Steamship Company, which was formed in the very simple manner described above with one ship, of which Captain Lloyd was the captain, has now four or five boats. There are also four new and larger boats in the course of being built. The s.s. Ponce," 5,000 tons, is the one destined for Captain Lloyd and it will be launched about the end of July. It has cabin deck accommodation for 200 passengers. The cession of Puerto Rico to the United States is opening up a large ocean traffic between that island and the States which this Company is to the front to supply. For this island, which is only 108 miles long by forty-five miles wide and has a population of 900,000, as a result of the new alliance, a great and glorious future in predicted. It is anticipated that thousands of Americans will sojourn there for business and recreation. The new boat, s.s. Ponce," is constructed so as to cover the voyage in four and-a half days from New York to San Juan. Mr James D. Dewell, governor of the State of Connecticut, made two voyages on the "Arcadia" and has published a book with beautiful kodak views giving an account of the voyages, and has dedicated it to Captain Lloyd. Captain Lloyd is one of the boys whom the Aberayron people will like to talk about. He has obtained a good position, is a trusted officer of the Company, and has a bright future.

Mr Joseph Parry. Tyllwyd, Penllwyn, was driving his convey- ance loaded with passengers into Aberystwyth and when in Northgate-street, in passing a hoarding which projects into the street, came into contact with a cartload of bricks which was being taken in the opposite direction. The pole and some of the harness breaking, the front of the conveyance dropped, in consequence of which passengers sitting in front were thrown forward on to the street. Mr Parry, the driver, was dragged forward by the horses and escaped without serious injury. Of the passengers who were thrown out Mr David Jones, Penllwyn, received some injury, it is said, to his back. The others escaped with a shaking. Mr Parry, the driver, held en courageously to the horses which had become restive. One of the passengers, who was thrown on to his back on to the road, got up and went to one horse and Mr Richard James, Brynllys, went to the other and further damage was prevented. MISSIONARY MEETINGS. — Special missionary meetings on behalf of the African Institute, Colwyn Bay, were held at the Welsh Baptist Chapel last Sunday. In the morning the Rev T. G. Williams. the deputation for Wales and Ireland, preached a powerful sermon, after which a young African student named Ayodeji Oyejola from Yorubaland spoke and sang in English. The young negro, although but twenty-one, has a good know. ledge of English. He also gave songs in his own language. In the afternoon Mr Williams and Ayodeji spoke at the Sunday School. There was a large congregation at the evening meeting when Ayodeji spoke for about half-an-hour and sang African songs. In the course of his remarks, which were most interesting, he said that in Africa there was a meaning to all the names given to people. For instance, his name Ayodeji meant "double joy." He dwelt at some length upon the worship of idols by his people and said they worshipped snakes, trees, water, and even the devil. They worshipped the devil because they feared him. As a rule outside each native habitation would be found a large stone and this stone was supposed to represent the devil. Every morning palm oil was poured on the stone, the object being "to cool his Satanic Majesty." (Laughter.) Mr Williams, in the course of his address, said the African Institute undertook the training of young Africans for missionary work in their own country. It was supported entirely by voluntary subscriptions. He referred to the fact that there was an idea that the Institute was opposed to English missionaries. This was inaccurate. English missionaries had done and would do good work, but they argued that converted Africans could gain more influence with the generality of their people than white Christians could. There was great need for pecuniary help at the present time, having regard to the great^eflForts made by Mahommetans to make the natives accept their creed. Collections were made towards the funds of the Institute. t PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.—Mr J. E. Hughes, M.A., Carnarvon, officiated at this Church on Sun- day.

ENGLISH BAPTIST TRIP.—The annual trip of the English Baptist Cnapel took place on Thursday, the place selected being Llyfuant Valley. The trippers, who numberedabout eighty, were favoured with beautiful weather. The brakes were supplied by Messrs R. Jones and Sons, North-parade. THE PROMENADE.—During the past week large shrubs of eunonymus have been placed on the Victor- ia and Marine Terraces, and have not only a pretty effect, but do much to relieve the monotonous grey which before largely prevailed. The spring epide- mic of painting has resulted in most remarkable combinations of colour, some of which would pro- perly give an artist a fit of the blues. TRIP TO SWANSEA.-—About a hundred availed themselves of the cheap day tickets on Tuesday, to pay a visit to Swansea where Barnum and Bailey's menagerie is at present exhibiting. The train was delayed a couple of hours, owing to the tunnel accident, and they were let down at Swansea Bay Station instead of the station advertised. This was, however, much more convenient, the rie being close to that sta'ion. The train arrived in time for the proceedings, which were much enjoyed.

All candidates entered were success- ful. NARROW ESCAPE OF CHILDREN.—On Wednesday five or six youngsters, ranging in height between two feet and three and a half, climbed into a trap drawn by a horse which was on the road in George- street, the driver having left it for a few moments. Having successfully scaled the sides of the trap, they startd a little horse play and made so great a disturbance as to cause the horse to move. The nippers at or,ce set up a chorus of yells which only served to make the animal go faster. Fortunately, however, the horse w&s not of a very wild disposi- tion and when the wheels came into contact with the kerbing it stopped and the young ones, who were considerably frightened, were able to get down. N ATION AL SCHOOLS. —The folio wing is thediocean report on these schools made by the examiner (the Rev Hilary Lewis) —Mixed department The result of the examination shows that this school still maintains its usual high position for proficiency in religious knowledge and for tone and discipline.

A i.»ii .wr.ACX TO ALRKY.STWYTH.—Lodging-hous'. keepers and others who are brought into direct con- tact with visitors are frequently made aware of the great drawback to the town which exists in the fact that there is no early tram on Monday morning enabling visitors to return to business in the Mid- lands at a reasonable hour.

Last week a family had to curtail their visit to Aberystwyth on Saturday because it was necessary for them to be iu Birmingham shortly after midday on Monday. The Great Western Railway Company, who have done a great deal for Aberystwyth during the past few years are now doing something to mitigate that drawback, for they announce that a new train will leave Abervstweth at 8.15 a.m. which will reach Birmingham at 12-15 and Pad dington at 3-30.

The Carnarvonshire Baptist annual conference held at Llanberis on Tuesday, with a large re presentation from all parts of the county, unani- mously adopted on the motion of the Chairman of the County Liberal Association, a strongly-worded resolution declaring that the time had arrived for Welsh members to form an independent Welsh oarty, which, while co-operating generally with the English Liberal party, would act independently when necessary for more effectual promotion of Welsh interests. Disestablishment, control of the iquor traffic, the land question, and education were instanced as examples where Welsh public opinion is far in advance of that of England.

PONTRH YDFENDIGAID. SCHOOL BOARD.—On Saturday, June 17th, the Strata Florida U. D. School Board met again to deal with the vexed question of irregular attend- ance at the Bont and Abbey Schools which are under its supervision. Irregular attendance at schools seems at present to be the chief topic of the day, and this Board, with others, is attempt- ing to improve the attendance. A new clerk and new attendance officer have been appointed and various devices tried to obtain improvement. Parents are defiant and care little for the officer's visits, or for ths special meetings of the School Board..some nineteen notices had been served for the special meeting held on Saturday, but not a single parent appeared. Driven to extremes the Board decided, in order to save its own existence, to issue summonses against a few, hoping this would have the desired effect on others equally guilty, but who were more cute in sending their children to school after service of notice.
