The tenth annual report of the Bath Church of England Lay Association, among other important matters, thus alludes to the proposed union of these two Welsh Dioceses:—The subject to which we first bent our attention before the opening of parliament, was the threatened union of the ancient dioceses of Bangor and St. Asaph.   Against that most unjust and cruel measure we prepared two petitions, in readiness to be presented at the commencement of the session; for that interference we were honoured by the special thanks of the two prelates, and other leading individuals in North Wales.   These petitions were presented by Lord KENYON and Sir Robert H. INGLIS BART.  Owing to the disturbed state of the principality, smarting as it is, in many places under poverty and acknowledged evils, it has become more and more imperative on the church, to make her voice to be heard on this invasion of her rights, Founded as were the dioceses of North Wales, long before the arrival of Augustine, even from the very first preaching of Christianity in Britain, they are standing memorials of our immediate connexion with the Primitive Church of these islands.   Surely, then, from their antiquity they are deserving of that protection which the state fully and freely gives to the endowments of Popish and Protestant dissent.   Limited as are generally the professional incomes of our clergy, they are comparatively lower still in most parts of Wales.   Almost the only increase they have comes from the Bishop, whose income (if the fiat of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners be carried out) is to be hereafter circulated tin the far wealthier locality of Manchester."
