Opening of a New Chapel at Pontyrynyswen. The above place stands in a fruitful and picturesque valley, near the river Cotby, ill (he parish of Llancgwad. The Calvinistie Methodists had a clHLpel here since the year 180:1. which had Ix'eotne dilapidated, and too small to accommodate the worshippers. Inasmuch as the old lease expires in ] :)t,}{, the frieuds put their heads together, and determined to approach tiie oNNtlei- of the laud. ill urder to secure a site oil reasonable terms to erect a new meeting house. The late Mr J. Davies, Waungiauod, did his utmost to assist in this matter. To their great joy, the younu; heir, Mr Herbert Griffiths (late of King-street, Carmarthen, but now of Xant, Llaiigunuo!), granted the old site and an additional half-acre for a burial ground at a nominal sum, which was conveyed in a proper way, and is now a freehold. This young gentleman's generosity has endeared him to many. After getting 9- plans and specifications ratified by the church, tenders were invited, and the lowest accepted, being that of Messrs Thomas liros., of Lan, lirechfa. Operations commenced at once, and the new chapel was opened ou Tuesday and Wednesday in last w eek by a series of preaching -services, when the following ministers preached to crowded congregations Revs 1). Jones, Llaiisawel .1,. AValters, St;Clears T. Parry, Llaufynydd 1/dward Davies, Carmarthen J'eter Davies [Cong.), Pallt teg D. Curwen Davies, (Cong.) Siloam, Pontargothi and Thomas Thomas, (Baptist), Eliin Park. The sermons were very much appreciated, and it is to be hoped good results will follow. There will be hardly any debt remaining on the new building, as the members of the church and their pastor, Kev Thomas Price, had been for months collecting in alld out ide the district, and had received liberal subscrip- tions, which, in addition to the amounts realized at the opening, enables them to face the future with courage. It can be said that the new structure iCo very substantial and pretty, and will accommodate about. persons. There is a vestry and stable attached. Mr J. Simpson, of CWHI, rendered valuable assistance in voluntarily super- intending the arrangements.
