LLANTWIT-MAJOR NOTES. fBy PELAGIUS.] -+- That versatile column in the II- Mail, which is a compound of wit, humour, banter, facts, fiction, and scurrility, I- Wales Day by Day," informed its readers that Nonconformity was on one leg at Llantwit-Major, and that there was but one Nonconformist minister in the place. It is to be hoped that the readers of the Mail take a large quantity of salt with their news, otherwise the Tory knowledge of Nonconformity here and else- where in South Wales will some day receive a rude shock, and the llWerw Moil will he flooded with correspondence enquiring how it is that the Church does not make progress in Wales. Your readers will well remember how. day after day, the Mail informed its poor dupes that Conservatism was going to sweep the Liberals in Wales but. after the election, what a falling off was there. The Mail was flinging its poisoned arrows here, there, and everywhere, laying the blame on every shoulder but its own. If for one moment it had stopped and asked itself the ques- tion, Have the way we have ridiculed the Welsh and abused Nonconformity anything to do with the defeat of Conservatism and its com placement, in South Wales." they would have said with Burns— 0 wad some pow'r the giftie gie us To see our sols as ithers see us It wad fine monie a blunder free us And foolish notion. Instead of one pastor we iiud at Limtwii- j Major four Nonconformist bodies Alritll three pastors, and two young men preparing for the ministry whose services are at the disposal of their churches, together with other local preachers, while the fourth Church has given a call to a very promising yuung preacher, and will be very shortly blessed with a resident minister. Judging by the offertories of the Established Church at Llan- twit-Major in past years. now that the Church is within measurable distance of having to support its own ministers, one sermon a year will be as much as Churchmen can expect, if the clergymen of the future will require the sum per sermon as they now receive by way of tithe unless some Liberal wave will open the purse strings of the Church-going people of Llantwit- Major. The Rev. Cynddalan Jones does not enjoy the confidence of the Nonconformist bodies of this neighbourhood. What a meagre attendance was that at our Town-hall at the annual meeting of the Bible Society. Man cannot serve two masters. The Non. Con. quill of the IVnxtrni Mail cannot expect those lie has been lampooning' to receive him with warmth. No. sir. as you make your bed j so you must lie. i
