LLANGEINWEN The Established Church in the fair Isle of Mona has been, as all must confess, for too long a period in a dor- mant state; but it is very pleasing to witness again signs of renewed activity in her learned pastors. Here and there, even in the most rural districts, we find the Church regaining lost ground, and winning the confi- dence of the alienated middle class. May the Island be graced still more abundantly with zealous pioneers of truth. Let the glorious epoch speedily arrive when its many literally deserted but sacred fanes shall be throng- ed with assemblies of saints worshipping God in spirit and in truth." The remote parish of Llangeinwen has been most fortunate in its clergy, and the Church there is in a very satisfactory and flourishing condition—pos- sessing a devoted pastor, respectable congregation, and a choir second to none in the county. The number of communicants is considerable The other day, we vi- sited the antiquated fane of St. Ceinwen-a British saint of the 5th century-and were delighted at the orderly manner in which both the church and the churchyard are kept. Everything in and about the sacred edifice seems to be a pattern of neatness, and the adjacent pa- rishes of Llanfair-y-cwmmwd and Newborough might learn a lesson from their neighbours here. In addition to a "living" Church, this parish possesses also a promis- ing National School—mainly supported by the Rev. Ca- non Williams, the Rector of Llangeinwen and Llangaffo, and carefully superintended by himself and his faithful curate. As to its efficiency, we can do no better than quote the Report of the liev. T. Wilkinson, Her Majes- ty's Inspector of Schools, who examined it on the 18th of July last:—" The School is very well looked after the Master does his work conscientiously and efficiently, and the attainments of the children are creditable." Out of 27 children presented for examination, 26 passed in reading, 27 in writing, and 27 in arithmetic. Happy the morn when all rural parishes will acquit themselves so creditably as Llangeinwen. Long life, peace, and pros- perity to the praiseworthy Rector and his diligent and upright Curate.-Communicated.
