James Rowe, D. H. Isaac, D. Evans, Lild E. Thomas. The Seren Gomer" is the oldest and the most ividely circulated magazine in Wales; it was founded by the jelcbrated Joseph Thomas, (" Gomer") it has always identified it- self with every liberal movement, and has done more for the for- mation of character in the present generation in Wales, than any 3ther uninspired book. The proprietorship of the "Seren Gomer" will be invested in shareholders, those shareholders to be men of status and learning, in the Baptist body. TROSNANT BAPTIST CHAPEL.-A. series of lectures, on the Welsh nation, has been delivered by the Rev. Mr. Isaac, the minister of the place, to the young people of his congregation. The first lecture, came down to the time of the landing of the Romans in Britain, fifty years before the Incarnation. After some preliminary observations,the lecturer read and analysed the account of the division of the Earth, by Moses, and the descendants of Noah, and then the stream through Gomer, was marked out; and followed from Asia Minor to Gaul, and Britain; the connection of the Gomerians,of Ezekiel andJosephus,withGomer,and the identity of the Cimbrii, of Herodotus, with the Celts of the Roman his- torians was satisfactorily established; the evidence of Greek and Roman historians on those points, was read and examined-also the topographical names and other Celtic traces, here and there, in Europe, were brought to throw light on the subject. The subject of the next lecture was, The ancient Literature of the Welsh nation. Large portions of the "Laws of Dyvnwal iMoel Mud," also the "Triads," and the Proverbs of Cenedl y Cymry," were read, The"Rhaith Llys," of Dyvnwal Moel Mud, and Trial by Jury of modern times, were compared and identified. The Lecturer proceeded with much ability and impartiality, bat he ex- pressed himself as having no sympathy with those Die Shon Dafydds, who set down their forefathers as a nation of yesterday, and a horde of barbarians, when these gentlemen are* proved to be as much versed in the history of their own country as they are in the history of the inhabitants of the moon, if indeed so much, as they appear to be more under the influence of that planet than of any other orb.
