TEN B Y. MISSIONS.—Sermons will be preached in the parish church of St Mary, Tonby, on Sunday next, in behalf of the Society fur the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, and a meeting will be held in the Infant School on Monday evening for the same object, when the chair will be taken at seven p.m. THE INDBPENDENT CHAPEL, SARD IS, SAUVDERSFOOT. -Several interesting services have been held during the past week at the Independent Chapel, at Swrdis, in aid of the funds required for liquidating the cost of the almost re erection of the building. The chapel of S/n dis, which was one of the oldest nonconformist places of WI rship in the neighborhood, has lately been show- ing unmislakf.able signs of decay. The Rev. D. Mathias, minister of Saundersfoot, determined (with the assistance of friends) to rebuild it. Consequently, in the month of November last, the good work began with indefatigable zeal: it was pushed forward in spite of every difficulty,, and "n Wednesday the 8th ins;, it was formally opened f>r public worship. New doors, windows, roof, pews, plastering, &c., form the principal items of the ex- penditure which amounted to about £160, to which may be added some J620 for work supplied gratuitously. Before the opening services of Wednesday Mr Mathias had succeeded in collecting some £70, leaving a balance of X90 to be provided for. On Wednesday morning, at 10.30 a.m., sermons were delivered by the Rev. J. M. Jones, of Narberth; at 2 p.m., by the Rev. U. R.' Thomas, of Redland Park, Bristol; and in the evening by the Rev Dr. Thomas, of Stockwell, London. On the following Sunday sermons were preached at 10.30 a m., by the Rev. T. Griffiths, of Si. Florence; at 2 p.m., by the Rev T. Davies, B. A. Goldaming, and the Rev H. Davies, of Middle Hill, Haverfordwest; at 6 p.m., by the Rev L. James, of Carwan and the Rev J. GriffithF, of Newton. The whole of the services were conducted by the Rev D. Mathias, of Saundersfoot. The amounts collected at the services were over £40. Promises to the extent of £ 20 have been since made, which will leave only a balance of some X30 to be met. We hope Mr Mathias (who has alone made himself re- sponsible for the undertaking) will speedily be able to place his chapel entirely out of debt, a position he cer- tainly deserves. The thanks of the neighbourhood are due to the rev. gentleman and the friends who have eo liberally given their contributions of money, time, and material.
