THE REV. DUNCAN MACGREGOR'S FAREWELL SERMON. The English Baptist Chapeljwas on Sunday evening last filled with a congregation, representing all de- nominations in the town, assembled to hear the last sermon from the beloved pastor of the chapel prioi to his departure for America. The rev. gentleman took for his text the 17th verse of the 3rd chapter to Ephesians—" Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth." The sermon was most impressively delivered, and the preacher dwelt upon the connection between the Christians on earth with the saints in heaven, and the relationship all bore to our Saviour. He (the preacher) also dwelt upon the importance of all being united in opposing the sin and ungodliness of the day, and though there might be surface diffe- rences, such as various members of the family differ in opinions though closely united by the bonds of love, yet they ought to be one in opposing the [irreligious tendency of the age. The preacher concluded an elo- quent and impressive sermon by appealing to his hearers to work more earnestly for the spread of holiness, and to pray constantly for the blessing of Godjupon their work. Before singing the last hymn two adults were ad- mitted members of the church by the rite of public baptism by immersion. During his ministry here nothing but success has attended the labours of the Rev. Duncan Macgregor, and he has left the Church stronger in numbers and in a better organised state than when he came to Rhyl. The finances too are now managed in a business-like way, and are in a healthy state-this the deacons (Messrs K. McEwen, Reynolds, and Homan) have frequently acknowledged. After the administration of the Lord's Supper Mr K. McEwen read the church's letter of recommenda- tion, which was highly eulogistic of the services ren- dered by the late postor. While the letter was being read many of the members were visibly affected.—Mr Macgregor, in feeling terms, thanked the church for this spontaneous expression of goodwill, and for the assistance they had so willingly and cheerfully rendered him during his five years' residence amongst them, and said that he would carry with him many happy memories associated with the church. On Monday Master Macgregor was presented by the Sunday school children with a beautiful writing desk.. The Rev. Mr Macgregor, Mrs Macgregor, with their son and maid, left the Mersey on Tuesday morning in the s.s. "Egypt," of the Cunard line. Mr W. P. Jones met them on board to bid them a last farwell.
