CONSECRATION OF ROBESTON WATHEN NEW BURIAL GROUND. The consecration of thd plot of land recently added to the burial ground at Robeston Watben,which took place on the 26th ult, was attended by many of the clergy and gentry of the neighbourhood, and the little church was soon crowded to overflowing. The sermon was preached by the Lord Bishop of St. David's in aid of the contem- plated works for the restoration or the church. His Lordship especially urged upon his hearers the necessity of promoting religious undertakings, and commen- ted on the oft-repeated excuse of those selfish persons who say that Charity begins at home,' observing that was no reason it should end there, and that though we should in all cases make it our first duty to provide for our wives and families, yet that should not absolve us from the secondary duty of giving of our abundance owards the restoring and tendering more habitable for God's worshippers the temple which had been erected for the purpose of doing Him honour. The collection, we understand, amounted to £ 30-a sura far from sufficient for the completion of the work. After the service the Bishop, accompanied by the Ven. Archdeacon Clark and the rest of the clergy who were present, procefded to the new burial ground, and after his signature to the neces- sary deeds had been duly affixed, the ceremony of con- secration was performed. The 100th psaltn having been sung, the company adjourned to the hospitable abode of the Archdeacon, where a sumptuous repast was laid out for all who were pleased to partake thereof. The health of the Bishop was proposed by the Archdeacon, and to this his Lordship responded by referring in very com- plimentary terms to the high respect felt by all for his host, in every position he had occupied. After these toasts had been drunk, the cempany, which numbered about sixty people, many of whom had come from a long distance, began to disperse. We regret that the in- clemency of the weather deterred a great many friends and admirers of Archdeacon Clark from being present at this most interesting ceremony.
