™ E NB\ REV. H. GRATTAN GUINNESS—This celebrated preacher on Monday, Tuesday, Rnd Wednesday evenings, delivered eloquent addresses to large and attentive congregations, in Tudor Place, commencing at seven p.m., and in the Baptist Chape) at. 8.30. Many of those who were present at the former meeting were not, we fear, in the hahit of attending any place of worship, Mrs Guinness also preached in the Baptist Chapel on Wednesday evening. ENTERTAINMENT.—A farewell entertainment, by special request, was given at the Royal Assembly Rooms on Monday evening week, by Sergeants Ansell and Hewson, 9th Regiment, assisted by Sergeant R. 8. Tucker, Mr C. H. Tasker, (organist of St. Mary's) and Mr Joe Griffiths, Pembroke Dock. The programme, which consisted of reading, recitations, and (with a single exception) comic songs, was exceedingly well gone throusth. Sergeant Ansell's songs, which were sung in character, obtained immense applause; we must make especial mention of Betsy Waring' and 'Good bye John.' Sergeant Hewson was equally successful in his recitations, and we really bardiy know which to admire most, his humorous ren- dering of 'Sergeant Buzfuz's Address to the Jury,' or the pathos with which he gave Hood's I Bridge of Sighs-' Sergeant Tucker was very amusing in his selection of readings, especially the • Boots at the Swan.' Mr Joe Griffiths sustained his reputation in 'The House that Jack Built,' and Lodging-house Cat' Mr C. H. Tasker, who undertook the arduous task of presiding at the pianoforte throughout the evening, in his usual manner sang the I White Squall' and What a wonderful scholar was lie., When we say that almost all the songs were encored, it is almost unnecessary to add that the whole affair was successful. We had almost omitted to mention that the Yeomunry hand, with the kind permission of their Major, Baron F. De Rutzen, exerted themselves to please the audience with selections from various com- posers. The entertainment closed with 'God Save the Queen.'
