Token of Respect.

On Monday evening last, at the National School, South Crosland, near Huddersfield. The Sunday School Teachers and Communicants of the Church, presented a suit of ministerial robes to the Rev. G. Hough, M.A., Incumbent of Trinity Church, as a token of their respect for his unwearied and efficient services amongst them for upwards of twenty years. The rev. gentleman not having been previously informed of the intention of his friends, was very much surprised when he was introduced into the room and made acquainted with the object of the meeting, but he addressed them in a most feeling manner, declaring he would not exchange his sphere of usefulness for the most exalted station in the world.
