Two pupils of this school, viz., Mr Edwin E. Jones, son of the Ide Dr. Edwin Jones of Rhyl, and grand- son of the Rev. John Williams, Rhyl; and Mr T. E. Hughes, son of Mr Roger Hughes, Abbey street, Rhyl, have passed successfully the preliminary classical examination of the faculty of physicians and surgeons of Glasgow. The subjects of examination were Latin, French, algebra, ouclid, English grammar, and arithmetic. During the current year we have recorded the following achievements of pupils of this school: Two passed the matriculation examination of the University of London in January two passed the preliminary examination of the incorporated Law Society in February and May one the matriculation examination of the University of Dublin in June; one the junior freshman examination of the same examination in July one the first B.A. examination of the University of London in July and now two the preliminary medical examination. We are always glad to record scholastic progress no matter where it may be, but we are doubly glad to do so in the case of the St. Asaph Grammar School, which is one of the oldest schools in this part of the principality. We congratulate the pupils for what they have done, and wish them every success in their future career. In doing this we must not be unmindful of the scholastic ability of Dr. Easterby, the learned and respected head master, to whom it will be specially gratifying to hear so often of the successes of his pupils.

The gorgeous procession caused quite a flutter of excitement. PEESJIXTATION.—On Wednesday last, theWesleyans of this city presented Mr. J. C. Ellis with a purse of gold on his leaving the neighbourhood. The presentation was made in the Wesleyan Chapel, in suitable and feeling terms, by Mr. David Williams, builder, the hon. treasurer. Mr. Ellis, in accepting the testimonial, said that he thanked them from the bottom of his heart, and that he should as long as ho lived look back with feeling of pleasure to his resi- dence iu St. Asaph, and the many kindnesses ho had received at their hands. The Rev. William Jones, of Denbigh, who takes Mr. Ellis's place at St. Asaph, preached his first sermon on the occasion, and took an interesting part in the ceremony. lir.T.J.Williams, saddler, acted as hon. secretary to the presentation committee, and much credit is due to him for his energy in that capacity. We understand that Mr. EUis intends continuing his studies at St. Adian's College, Birkenhead, with the ultimate intention of entering the Church of England ministry.
