TENBY. WORKING MEN'S CLUB.—Mrs Gwynne has kindly presented to the Working Men's Club a copy of Fox's Book of Martyrs.' A CONCERT took place on Monday week at the Bethesda Chapel in aid of the funds for completing the Presbyterian Chapel at Saundersfoot. LECTURE AT STEPASIDB.-On Tuesday week the Rev N. Pascoe (Primitive Methodist), delivered a lecture at Stepaside on Home Sweet Home," the Rev J. Williams in the chair. The Rev D. Mathias, Independent Minister, of Saundersfoot, opened and closed the meeting amid the greatest enthusiasm. The lecture, which treated on this subject, dear to the domesticated hearts of Englishmen, was listened to with the greatest atten- tion. The proceeds were in aid of the work of restora- tion which has been going on in the interior of the old chapel at Sardis, one of the oldest, and we may say most deserving of the very numerous places of worship which dot this part of our county. Votes of thanks were unani- mously accorded to the very excellent lecturer, and deservedly so to Mr. J. Canton, who stood at the receipt of custom, or in other words took the cash at the door. SAUNDERSFOOT PETTY SESSIONS, MARCH 10, 1868.— Before Dr Dyster, and H. Sanders, Esq -John Griffiths appeared to answer the charge of unlawful possession of property belonging to S. Darby.

MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT.—A very successful musical entertainment took place at the Royal Assembly Rooms on Monday week, the attendance being large. The ladies and gentlemen who took part in the concert were Miss Binfield and Mrs Marchant, Messrs Barnaschone, Tasker, Mathias, all of whom acquitted themselves exceedingly well. Miss Binfield and Mrs Marchant played a piano- forte duet in a very effective manner. Miss Binfield sang in her usual excellent style indeed we have naver heard her in better voice, the gem of the evening being her rendering of the beautiful song, 'Thou art so near and yet so far,' which quite electrified the audience, and was loudly redemanded. Mrs Merchant contributed largely to the success of the evening in her duet with Miss Binfield, and the song, 'I'll follow thee,' which was exceedingly well rendered. Mr Tasker created roars of laughter in his two comic songs, and in the comic duet with Miss Binfield he was irresistibly funny. Mr Mathias sang 'The March of the Men of Harlech,' and 'The Gentlemen of Wales,' and was loudly applauded. Mr Barnaschone sang 'Never mind the rest,' and 'John Brown' very nicely indeed in fact the concert altoge- ther was a decided success. We bear there are to be three more entertainments, which will bring the series to a close, on Monday, the 16th Thursday, the 19th; and Monday, the 23rd.
