ANGLESEY.—INDEPENDENTS' Ass F-mBLY.-The annual assembly of the Congregational churches of Anglesey was held this vear at Llanerchymedd, on Thursday and Friday, the 12th and 13th in- stant. At two o'clock on Thursday, a conference, of ministers and preachers was convened, and a goodly number attended. Rev. W. Griffith, Holyhead, was called upon to preside, and Rev. R. Parry, Llandovery, to act as secretary.: The.proceedings were carried on with perfect harmony, and the. announcement ot the prosperous state of the churches in general gave universal satis- faction. At five o'clock, in the open air, at a convenient field, the public services, commenced, and sermons were delivered by the Revs. J. Jones, Penllys; T. Pierce, Liverpool; and D. Rees, of Llanelly. On Friday morning at six o'clock, the Rev. E. Ste- phens, Dwygyfylchi, and Mr. Lewis, Bangor, preached. At ten o'clock sermons were delivered by the Revs. It. Parry, Llando. very, and W. Rees, Liverpool at two o'clock, by the Revs. T. Rees, Siloa, and D. Price; Denbigh and at six, by the Revs. R. Griffith, Pwllheli, R. Thomas, Liverpool, and W. Morris, Bir- kenhead. The devotional parts were conducted by the Revs. T. Edwards, Ebeneaer, J. Davies, Bala, and G, Thomas, Saran. This was the most numerously attended of all the assemblies hitherto held in the island.. PEMBRoi;-e DGGK.-Oll Sunday the 16th instant, the anniver- sary services in connexion- with the -Baptist chapel, Bush-street, in this town, were held. The Rev. John Rees, of Myrtlctrov, preached in the morning; the Revs, J. Rees, and William Walters, of Preston, in the afternoon; and the Rp-vs. John Edwards, of Brynmawr (partly in Welsh), and W. Walters in the evening. The preaching throughout the day was truly excellent— Now dropping as the rain, and now distilling as the dew." The. crowded audiences seemed to appreciate what they heard, and though the collections were simply announced, the appeal was more liberally responded to that) on any former occasion. Mr. Walter8 discourse in the evening on the character and duties of the times was peculiarly appropriate. The text (1 Chron. xii. 32) should induce every Christian, to study well the marvellous moral and political changes of the present day. Taking en- couragement by the tone and success of last Sabbath, the friends of the place have commenced a project, for the speedy liquidation of the t 200 debt remaining on the chapel. BRYNMAWR.—The anniversary of the English Independents of Brynmawr Nantlyglo was held on the 16th instant, when power- ful and eloquent sermons were delivered by the Rev. Robert Thomas, Hanover, and the Rev. David Lewes, Ragland, The congregations being so large the Town Hall was kindly lent on the occasion. ORDINATION On the 18th instant, Mr. Robert Williams, late of Bala Academy, was ordained pastor of the Independent church, of Llanddeusant, Anglesey. The introductory discourse on the nature of a Christian church, was delivered by the Rev. W. Griffith, Holyhead, founded on Eph. v. 32. But I speak concerning Christ and the Church." The Rev. W. Thomas, Beaumaris pro- posed the questions to the young minister, which were satisfacto- rily answered. The Rev. D. James, of Rhos-y-meirch, said the Ordination Prayer, after which the charge to the minister was delivered by the Rev. W. Jones, Amlwch, from Matt. xxiv. 45: Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household to give them meat in due season P" and the charge to the Church was delivered by the Rev. D. Ro- berts, Cemaes, founded on Acts xiv. 15: "We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you."
