WELSH LECTURES, IN LONDON. The Welsh residents of London have lately been much grati- fied by the delivery of very able lectures by the Rev. Edward Roberts, Rhymney a brief account of which may not be unin- teresting to many readers of the PKINCIPALITY. On Wednes- day evening, Feb. 21st, 1349, Mr. Roberts delivered his first lecture, in Eldon-street chapel. The chair was taken soon after seven o'clock by Mr. Owen, who introduced the rev. lecturer to the meeting, in a short but appropriate speech. The subject of this evening's lecture was Natural Philosophy," and it is but justice to say that it was handled by Mr. lioberts with great ability, and his apt illustrations brought the subject home with great clearness to the minds of his hearers. At the con- clusion of the lecture, which occupied upwards of an hour and half in the delivery, E. W. Richard, Esq moved the thanks of the meeting to the talented lecturer, and described in elo- quent and glowing terms the pleasure with which he had lis- tened. to the treatment of a scientific subject with so much clear- ness and precision :il1 his own mother tongue, and strongly urged the publication of the lecture, were it only for the pur- pose of proving to the notorious Education Commissioners that the Welsh language is as capable for scientific purposes as their own, or any language ancient or modern. Mr. Humphreys having seconded the resolution, it was carried with acclamation. On Tuesday evening, Feb. 27th, Mr. Roberts delivered his second lecture. The chair was occupied by E. W. Ilichard, Esq., who craved the earnest attention of the audience to the lecture about to be delivered. Mr. Roberts's subject on this occasion was the of the Gospel;" and this, like die former lecture, was characterised by great ability and much preparation, and was listened to throughout with unwearied attention, and repeated tokens of approbation. At the conclu- sion a vote of thanks was passed to Mr. Roberts, for his able and highly interesting lectures and to Mr. Richards for his readiness on all occasions to lend the countenance of his talents and influence to whatever tends to promote the improvement and well being of his countrymen.Prom a Ccrrcsj!ondcnt.
