lUligioiis 3rrtrlligmn. ^— THE QUARTERLY MEETING OF THE BAPTIST IN It, THE COUNTY OF CARMARTHEN was held on the first Tuesday and. Weclncsday of this month at Porthyrhyd. On the first day the service commenced at six o'clock in the evening, when the Rev. T. Jones, Caio, W. Hughes, Llanelly, and B. Thomas, Penrhiw- goch, preached to a numerous and attentive audience. The follow- ing day, at half-past eight, ministers met in the chapel for con- sultation. The public services commenced at ten, two, and six, when the congregations were addressed, in the morning by the Revs. J. Williams, Aberduar, and D. Jones, Felinfoel; in the afternoon by the Revs. E. Roberts, Trefach M. James, Llwyahendy and J. Spencer, Llanelly and in the evening by the Rev. D. Phillips, Llanelly; J. James, Soar; and R. Owens, Capel-sion. The intro- ductory exercises were severally performed by Messrs. Phillips, Roulins, Jones, and Evans (Independent). All the meetings were j numerously attended. The sermons, for the most part, were in- structive, edifying, and eloquently delivered, an" it is hoped that the impression made by them upon the minds of all will prove salutary and lasting. At the close of the different services collec- tions werc made for liquidating the debt remaining on the chapel, which amounted to nearly forty pounds. The parties connected with this place feel grateful to their neighbours of various persua- sions for the kindness and hospitality which they manifested towards them on this occasion, and only wait for opportunities of doing them the rmme acts of generosity. ORDINATION OF REV. JOliN EDWARDS.—On the 6th and 7th instant, Mr. John Edwards, late of the Baptist College, Haverford- west, was set apart to the work of the ministry at Llanrhyd, near Narberth. On Tuesday the meeting commenced at two o'clock, when sermons were preached by the Rev. E.Edwards, of Pem- broke Dock, and the Rev. Mr. Williams, of Ebenezor. On Wed- nesday the Rev. Jones, of Middle Mill, delivered an address on the nature of the Christian Church; the Rev. Mr. Davies, oi Haverfordwest, preached to the young minister and the Rev. Mr. Thomas, ofTrehale, addressed the assembly, and concluded by offering the ordination prayer. Churchmen and Independents t t attended, and were very kind on the occasion. It is matter of con solution to the Congregational Church at Lii n rht- (I th at their young minister commenced his, labours under such auspicious circum- stances. HAY.—TABERNACLE CIIAPEL.—Another of those social and in tellectual feasts known by the appellation of a tea-party, passed off with eclat at the above-named chapel on the 5th inst., the company being double the number than at any previous one, although the most influential family has left in order to reside in a neighbour- ing city. After the clang of spoons, tongs, &c., had entirely sub- sided, the Rev. V. Howells, minister of the place, was voted to the chair, which ho effectively occupied. Telling addresses were delivered by the Rev. J. Evans, Methodist, Briliy J. Hajl, Bap- tist, Hay; Henry Jones, Independent, Pain's Castle; W. Davies, Wesleyan, Brecon; and Dr. Griffiths, Hay. That of the Rev. Henry Jones, on "Sabbath-school teaching," produced a deexs impression. The choral part was discharged by the New- Church choir, under the able superinteiulency of Mr. Thos. Phillips, Tre- wern, to wnoni much credit is due for the proficiency to which he has brought them. It.
