WELSH CONGREGATIONAL COLLEGES. PROPOSED AMALGAMATION" SCHEME. I On Tuesday afternoon a special meeting of the executive committee of the Bala-Bangor College was held at Bangor, Dr. Jones-Morris, Portmadoc, president, in the chair.—The secretary, the Rev. David Rees, Capel Mawr, presented the report of the representatives of the colleges, who met at Shrewsbury, and passed a resolution that they were of opinipn there should be one Congregational College for the teaching of theology in Wales, and that it should be located at Brecon.—Professor Anwyl thought this question of amalgamation was one of the greatest importance to the denomination, and one in connection with which they should move slowly, even if it took five years to arrive at a settletnent.-Dr. P. Jones said the Presbyterian Board had been snubbed in the matter. They had not been consulted. He was of opillion that if a memorial or a deputation were sent to that board they would meet and agree to ai.iialgainate.The Rev D. M. Jenkins (Liverpool) would not he willing to amalgamate with a Unitarian college. Their object had been to establish one college for the teaching of theology, and, being uuited with a Unitarian college would not be what they wanted.— Professor Anwyl asked if the scheme meant doing away with the institution at Bangor, a.nd thought it would be better if both institutions could be kept to do work on different lines.—The Rev. R. Rowlands (Bethesda) proposed, and Mr. Millward (Bangor) seconded, that we as a committee, approve of the principle of union between the Bala, Bangor, and the Brecon colleges, so as to secure better aud more proficient theologial education for the ministry.—The resolution was carried by a majority, but it was decided that the matter remain in abeyance till the annual meeting.
