Thomas Thomas, theological tutor of the Baptist College, delivered an eloquent discourse on Baptism at the Eng- lish Baptist chapel, Crane-street, after which eight individuals were baptised, most of whom were young persons, and one the pastor's son.

GILEAD CHAPEL, COITY, NEAR BRIDGEND.—At the above chapel a meeting was held on the 21st inst. to advocate the prin- ciples of total abstinence from all intoxicating drinks; when Ni r. Lewis Davies, Coity, presided, and addresses were delivered in Welsh by Messrs. Thomas Hughes and Richard Roberts, both of Old Castle. We are glad to state that the meeting was well at- tended, though we understand this was the first meeting of the kind that has been held in the place. The lecturers dwelt chiefly on the uselessness of intoxicating drinks, and the great good aris- ing from the adoption of teetotal principles.
