I Tbe correspondence publislted in this column must not be always considered necessarily in contormity with the' prin- ciples or opinions of the journal.] MR. FROST'S LECTURES. [TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERLIN AND SILURIAN.] SIR,—I have read in the local papers of to-day, a letter signed by Messrs. J. Williams and Samuel Lloyd, jun., to the material points of which, I beg to give the most unqualified contradiction, In the first place, I never suggested that I thought Mr. Frost ought to be allowed the Town Hall gratuitously, as had I thought so, I should have used the power vested in me as Mayor, and granted it, as I have done in, other cases what I did say was, that I would submit the application to the Council, leaving it for them to act as they thought fit." I was then asked, in the event of their refusing to grant it gratuitously, to request its use at a reduced charge at the same time, to point out that the application came for an old inhabitant of the town, who was not in affluent circumstances. In the second place, I never promised to preside at the above meetings, neither did I suggest that they should be deferred until after my return home.. And in the third place, I made no particular remarks whatever with regard to Mr. Frost, beyond obtaining a pledge, before I would consent to allow the use of the Town Hall under any circumstances, that the subject of the lectures, viz., the Evidences of Christianity" and "Education," should be most strictly adhered to, and that nothing political, personal, or foreign to these subjects, shouldl be on any account discussed. How far this pledge was fulfilled, I leave the public to judge. I shall not, Mr. Editor, again enter upon this subject, consi- dering. the same to be unnecessary and undesirable. I am, Sir, yours very obediently, CHARLES LYNE, Mayor. Newport, October 3rd, 1857. -0
