On Sunday last, the Rev. Mr. Waite, of Bristol, preached two eloquent sermons at the Tabernacle Independent chapel, on the anniversary of that place of Divine Worship. Very full congregations attended, and evinced their approba- tion of the rev. gentleman's ministration by a fixed attention to the eloquence and beauty of the discourses, and by liberal col- lections at the close. A tea party was held at the Town Hall on Mon- day afternoon last, in celebration of the anniversary of the Tabernacle Independent chapel, in this town, on which occa. sion, R. Mullock, Esq, mayor, presided. The assembly was not very numerous, but the enjoyments of the evening were of the most pleasing kind, and afforded unmixed delight. The Rev. J. Waite, of Bristol, whose instruction of a musical class, comprising nearly every denomination of Dissenters in Newport, was lately attended with such striking results, ad- dressed the assembly in a speech replete with excellence o! style and appropriateness of matter; and was followed by the tuneful voices of a large number of the audience, in singing appropriate hymns to tunes selected for the occasion. The Mayor, the Rev. Mr Gillman, minister of the chapel, and the Rev. Mr Davies, of Highbury College, London, also delivered excellent speeches, which elicited much applause. The singing was marked by a high degree of excellence which, previous to the lectures of the Rev. Mr. Waite, in Newport, had never been a'.tained and the rich treat it afforded to all who listened, will long be remembered. The receipts on the occasion were to be added to a fund contributed by the ladies of the Taber- nacle chapel, towards the liquidation of the debt on that place of worship. We have been informed that a singing class, upon the Hullah system, as recently taught by the Rev. Mr. Waite, in this town, has been formed in the English Baptist Sunday school, Commercial-street. The class commenced on Wednes- day evening, and numbered upwards of fifty. Mr. Theophilus Morris,—one of the honorary secretaries of the Institute,—has kindly undertaken the office of teacher and there is no doubt but that under his able and excellent tuition, the class will speedily attain a mastery of the sweet science of singing. We hope the example thus set, will be followed by all the Sabbath schools in Newport. A potatoe of the prolific class, lately turned out a produce of eIghty. one, in a garden on Stow HIli. This was indeed "prolific." An accident of a frightful nature, but which, hap- pily, did not prove fatal, occurred on board a schooner lying at the Moderator wharf, in this port, on Tuesday evening last. It appears that the schooner Venus was discharging oats, and that John Boyce, one of the seamen belonging to the schooner, was upon a stage, erected for the purpose of carrying the cargo ashore. While employed upon this stage, which was at a great height above the deck, Boyce, by an accident, slipped his foot, and fell with terrible violence on the deck. When the poor fellow was picked up, it was discovered that his left arm was almost smashed, being broken in two or three places, and his skull was cut and bruised in a frightful manner. He was im- mediately taken to the Seamen's Hospital in Charles-street, and under the skilful treatment of the surgeon, there are hopes of his speedy recovery. At the last committee meeting of the Newport Mechanics' Institute, on Tuesday evening, it was resolved that immediate application should be made to several gentlemen in the town and neighbourhood, to deliver lectures to the members and friends of the Institute. It is somewhat surprising that in a district containing so many gentlemen with great abilities and much leisure, and a Mechanics' Institute with so large a num- ber of members, so few lecturers should be found anxious to disseminate their knowledge amongst the less.cultivated portion of society. We hope the applications about to be made, will be successfully met. DR.
