BASSALLEG. VISIT OF THE LORD BISHOP.—The Lord Bishop of the Diocese, with Mrs. and Miss Ollivant, being on a visit, for a few days, to the Vicar of Bassalleg—the Rev. Chancellor Williams—the inhabitants of that place were delighted by his Lordship appearing in Bassalleg Church, and taking part in the services on Sunday morning last, and particularly by the admirable discourse he delivered, to a crowded and attentive congregation, from I Peter, ii. 24,—" Who his own self bare our sins in his own body, on the tree, that we being dead to sin, should live unto righteousness ;a discourse, which may be justly characterised as being so plain, practical, and truly evangelical, that the humblest and most illiterate hearer could not fail to understand and profit by it, while the most learned and fastidious could not but admire the sim- plicity, and at the same time, the elegance and propriety, of his Lordship's style and diction. His Lordship was present at the evening service, but, to the great disappointment of several persons who attended in the hope of hearing him, took no part in it, beyond pronouncing the Blessing at the conclusion of an excellent sermon preached by the Chancellor, from I John v, 11. We are gratified in adding that his Lordship was plensod to express great satisfaction at the plain, but correct and efficient, manner, in which the musical portions of the services were performed.
