BANGOR DIOCESAN SOCIETIES.—The annual meet- ings of these societies, which have been held under the presidency of the Bishop, have attracted an unusually large attendance of cltrgy and laity. The report of the Church Extension Society, of which Archdeacon Evans is the honorary secretary, showed a decrease upon last year's financial returns of .£244, a result adversely commented upon by the Bev P. Constable Ellis, and which led to the election of a sub-committee to consider the desirability of the employment of lay readers for the English seiv ces of bi-lingual parishes. The Rev J. Pryce, secretary of the Church Extension Society, reported the re building of the churches at Aber and Pene- goes, and the restoration of Rhoscolyn Church. A donation of .£100 was voted to the parent society of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, the council of the Clerical Aid Society was dissolved owing to want of subscriptions, whilst the repoit of the Church Defence Association pointed out that, unless there was an increase of subscriptions, the association would be in debt. Upon the recom- mendation of Dr Briscoe, a memorial was adopted to the Oxford University Commissioners, praying that no alteration should be made in the application of the revenues intended for and hitherto applied to the support of Welsh scholars and exhibitioners at Jesus College; and, upon the suggestion of the Bishop, a petition was signed requesting the Church Congress of England and Wales to hold the annual meeting of 1879 at Carnarvon. The conference was chiefly taken up with a discussion relative to the especial duty of the Church towards the young before and after confirmation.
