It is lined with white silk, and has white cords and tassels. The other, which corresponds with it, is of the skin of a most beautifully marked British pheasant, on seal-skin, with dark brown silk lining, cords and tassels.

BECCLES Presentation To Mr R. WARD. The teachers of the Sunday-school connected with the Congregational Church met in the School-rooms on Tuesday last, and took tea together. After opening the proceedings with singing and prayer. The Rev John FLOWER, president of the school, who was in the chair, said the main feature of the present meeting was the recognising of the transfer of the office of superintendent from Mr WARD to Mr Henry READ. Mr FLOWER remarked that the term of Mr WARD's connection with the school had been unusually long - it had lasted fifty years, and what years these had been! What a change had come over the people of this country during that time! Whole classes of people could now read whose parents were altogether illiterate. This change had produced a corresponding one in the work of Sunday-school teaching; whereas fifty years ago the duty of a teacher was to instruct in the art of reading - now he had far higher aims. The duty demanded higher requisites in a teacher, and involved increasing responsibility. The disinterested kindness shewn [sic] towards the children gave the teachers a hold on their parents which should be employed for good. Our beloved Queen has recorded that when she first heard the Rev Norman M'CLEOD pray in an earnest manner for the Royal Children she "felt a lump rise in her throat;" all parents in this respect are alike - "one touch of nature makes the whole world kin." .....The Rev J. FLOWER, said that he had been requested by the teachers to make a present to Mr WARD in their name, which he did with very great pleasure. He spoke of the diligence with which Mr WARD had fulfilled his duties, and of the simplicity of purpose which he had shewn [sic], never employing his official superiority to gratify the love of power, or even to appear to assert pre-eminence over his brethren..... ....Mr FLOWER then begged Mr WARD's acceptance of a silver inkstand, bearing the following inscription: -"presented to Mr Robert WARD by the teachers of the Independent Sunday-school, Beccles, on his retiring from the office of Superintendent, after a connection with the school of upwards of fifty years. May 14th, 1867."
