Religious Intelligence. BRYNMAWR.—AS the number of Englishmen flowing in to the iron works is daily increasing, the Welsh churches are not backward in providing suitable accommodation for them. At Brynmawr the Baptists and Primitive Methodists have already built commodious chapels for English services. The Indepen- dents also have a few weeks ago formed an English interest in the place. On the occasion the Revs. D. Lewis, of Llanvap- ley, R. Thomas, Hanover, and T. Jeffreys, Penycae, officiated. The attendance was large and respectable. The new cause al- ready comprises about fifty members. The educational provi- sions of the place are rapidly increasing, and the Sunday schools are conducted in the most masterly manner. LLANELLY, B ILECOiSHIRE.-On Sunday, the 20th ult., anew English Wesleyan chapel was opened at the lower part of this place, called Gilwern. Several ministers officiated on the oc- casion, and-among them the Rev. J. H.Bunn, Independent minister of Abergavenny. The small chapel was inconve- niently full. NERO BRITISH SCHOOL.—On Tuesday, the 29th of August, a public examination of the British School at Nebo, Kilymaenllwyd, took place. The master, Mr. Thomas Bowen, conducted the classes through the different branches of education to which they had been attending since his return from Brecon in February last, such as Scripture history, mental arithmetic, geography, English grammar, recitations of select pieces in prose and verse, &c. The singing at the commencement and conclusion was conducted with decency and melody. Parents and others who attended, were highly gratified with the progress the children had made in various branches of useful knowledge in so short a period. Several ad- dresses were delivered at the close, expressive of their wonder and satisfaction with the proceedings of the day. The zeal, liberality, and perseverance of all classes resident in this neighbourhood are praiseworthy,: and a practical illustration of the superiority and efficiency of the voluntary principle.
