At night a meeting was held in the church, when the Derwent Male Voice Choir, conducted by MR. J. HANNA, rendered selections with excellent effect. Hymns and recitations were given by the children, and a solo by MRS. JAMES.
The Mayor (MR. R. H. HODGSON, J.P., C.A.) occupied the chair, and delivered an appropriate address. MR. F. HALL and MR. J. G. MILLS delivered thoughtful and stimulating speeches on Sunday school work.
At the close of the interesting gathering, the REV. C. BURROWS (pastor) proposed a hearty vote of thanks for the Mayor's services, and also those of the Derwent Male Voice Choir. It was seconded by MR. HARWOOD, and carried amidst applause. MISS HIDEN presided at the organ.
