THE REV. ARTHUR MURSELL AT CADOXTON. THRILLING LECTURE ON WANDERINGS AT WATERLOO." A highly able, interesting, and instructive lecture on the subject of "Wanderings at Waterloo" was delivered by the celebrated Rev. Arthur Mursell, of London, at the English Wesleyan Chapel, Cadoxton, on Thursday evening, the 18th inst., the proceeds being in aid of the funds of the adult Bible Class. The chair (in the absence of Mr. Lowdon, chairman of the School Board) was occupied by Mr. W. Jose, and the audience was a thoroughly appreciative one, the remarks of the gifted lecturer being heartily ap- lauded at various intervals. After a few opening remarks by the Chairman, the Rev. Arthur Mursell proceeded with his MASTERLY DISCOURSE upon a subject which would not fail to elicit the most eager attention of the audience. After refer- ring, in amusing terms, to the alternating little- ness and greatness of fluctuating humanity, Mr. Mursell recounted various incidents connected with his first visit to the French capital, in the year 1862; and made striking comparisons between the prevailing characteristics of the French and English people. From Paris the lecturer took his audience in racy detail to Brussels, thence by coach to the scene of one of England's most thrilling and eventful of battles, on the plains of Waterloo, and described, amidst profound silence, different inci- dents which occurred during that terrible struggle, a struggle which happily resulted in British vic- tory, and the complete subjugation of THE DESPOTIC RULE OF ONE OF THE WORLD'S GREATEST TYRANTS and persecutors—Napoleon Buonaparte. The Battle of Waterloo was God's battle, a decisive battle which happily effected a complete change in the social and political character of the nations of the civilised world. (Loud applause.)-On the motion of Mr. Kernick, seconded by the Rev. J. W. Matthews (both of whom described themselves as having visited Waterloo), a most cordial vote of thanks was passed to the Rev. Mr. Mursell for his admirable discourse, and, in acknowledging, Mr. Mursell proposed a vote of thanks to the Chairman for presiding, Mr. Jose expressing a hope that the proceeds of that evening's proceedings would enable the Adult Bible Class to obtain facilities for study and instruction superior even to those they had enjoyed hitherto. (Cheers.)
