The Secretary was directed to convey the committee's most hearty vote of thanks to the donor.—Attention was called by the Rev. Gwynoro Davies to the lamen- ted fact that already a number of our brave oseh had fallen in the great cause 1: of freedom and humanity, both on land and sea, and it was possible, though they all fervently prayed that it would not be the case, that others would yet saorifice themselves for their King and country. In his Opinion, it behoved the, townspeople to band to- gotber and comtemplate some worthy form of memorial to commemorate the bravery and courage of our noble lads who bad gallantly laid down ,their lives in the cause of justice and freedom. He considered that such a memorial ought to.be,abo,ve all cree 'da, sects and classes, and he thought that the Library was the only public institution in the town that exactly answered this description. As men and women of every shade of religion 'and politics were among its members, he suggested that the com- mittee should take the matter in hand. The Rev. R. Lloyd Roberts, while he expressed himself in accordance with the sentiments put forth by the last speaker, said that he considered the matter premature. At the present time they had not the faintest idea. of what the final results might be.—After further discussion it was conceded that it was premature to come to any final decision, and the matter was left in abeyance for the present.
