From The Central Republican, 10th.
A large congregation assembled in the church of the Good Shepherd on Sunday morning last to listen to the farewell discourse of the Rev. Dr. Breck, who has resigned his pastorate in consequence of the increasing labors of his position. Dr. Breck has been connected with the parish from the period of its organization in October, 1858. In his sermon he referred with the pride to the progress made by the society, which at the outset numbered but four communicants, and has grown to the number of over two hundred communicants, including one hundred and seventy eight families. Dr. Breck continues in the laborious position of dean of the mission, which devolves upon him the care and oversight of the scholars of all the schools. He is succeeded in the pastorate by the Rev. Wm. J. Johnston, who has for some time past been a resident of our village and has filled the position of superintendent of the parish schools.

An unusual incident in educational matters has occurred at Faribault, Minn. The parish school of the Church of Immaculate Conception has been turned over to the board of education of that city. The reasons which Father Conroy gives for this act are "That the school may receive the benefits that result from an American training" and that it may "receive from state and county appropriations that additional per capita tax."
