Sunday next [tomorrow] will be the anniversary of tIle accession of her Majesty — an occasion lor which a 8pral service is provided in the Liturgy, the rubric '"joining that "If this day siiall happen on a Sunday. this whole office shall he used, and tollowed entirely consequently it must supersede the ordinary Sunday Morning Service. The second lesson, epistle, tiad gospel specially appointed for the day, respectively c°ntain appropriate subjects for discourses- We may &11,1, that tile aspect of the times is such as to call for the fervent payers of all who take a Jeep interest in the welfare of the country and also that, besides this Consideration in thus performing their bounden duty (for they are bound to use this service by their oith ol :Ilegi-.tnce to the Sovereign), the clergy will only he attJng in the very Sf irit ci the devout sentiment ex- pressed by her Ma/e ty, in her speech to the houses of parliament on the :lGlh of January lust, when her Majesty said as follows:—" I humbly implore Divine Providence, that all your counsels may be so directed *s to advance the great interests of morality and 'elision to preserve peace and to promote, by en- lightened legislation, the welfare and happiness ol all classes of my subjects." How little her Majesty's Ininisters have concurred to realise the above devout ^ish (we sincerely assume that her Majesty devoutly taeant it), the history of the last five months too abund- antly attests. But that is an additional reason why the anniversary of her Majesty's accession on Sunday next, the 20th inst., should he fervently nnd loyally Cnmmemorated. We hope that our contemporaries will give early and extensive circulation to this notice, Wllictl we respectfully commend to the attention of the m. Rev. and Rev. the Bishops and Clergy.-Stalldard. TAFF VALE RAILWAY.— It will be seen by reference to the advertisement that an alteration will be made in the times of starting the trains from Merthyr and Cardiff, and that trains will be despatched four times day (Sundays excepted when only two will start) from each terminus. The alteration will not be made till July. THE GLAMORGANSHIRE CANAL.-We are required t. contradict a statement made in our last paper re- specting 70 tons of iron ore that were brought up by the railway on Thursday week we stated that it was brought up by the railway in two hours, and that it Would have required tltree days to bring it up by canal, whereas we are now informed the time really required V(Iuid have been only seventeen hotirs,-a very impor- tilnt difference. We -as,e the statement as we got it from a quarter on which we relied, and we hasten to give the contradiction, which we do with pleasure, not Unmixed with regret that we should have made an "ílertioD injurious to any one, particularly to a com- pany which has conferred and still confers such great benefits upon Merthyr as well as a very large district arolintl it We had no object in saying what we said beyond a desire to furnish the public with a piece of intelligence, and we have no object now except a wish to do justice to the party who feels aggrieved by the statement complained of. DEATH OF MASTER HUGHES -MallY of our readers flillbt remember will) delight the musical perlormanecs *f Master Hughe?, a young native of Wales, who came out to this country last year, nnd has since, in eu«jj».iny with two younger brothers, travelled over a Kood part of the Middle States oil a professional tour. IVC are now pained to record bis sudden death by drt)wllit.g The three broilers, under the guidance of their father, visited Newburgh last week, and gave in exhibition of their musical powers oil Tuesday •Evening. On Wednesday they wereinduced to engage a saiing excursion on the River to see the fisher- men raise their nets. The wind was blowing quite fresh at the time, and just after they reached the stakes the person before mentioned, who hid command the helm — and who knew little of his business as itt iiiiiiv appears — gibed the boat suddenly, instead of 8JtJMtrt¡;,f/ her round as he should have done. and she immediately capsized. Mr Hughes grasped his two youngest children and sustained them oil the keel of the boat; but the eldest, Joseph T. Hughes, was carried awav t'y the current and was drowned. He Waw about 14 years old, and greatly beloved by all Wtidt knew liiui. Up to Saturday, his body bid not been recovered. The others of the party (six) were secured a;tototi after the accident, greatly exhausted. By this accident, all interesting and gifted family is ■plunged into the deepest anguish.—New York Tribune, Alay 18. SWANSEA. BOROUGH OF SVVANSEA.

On Monday last, the third anniversary of the Tywysawg Morganwg Lodge was held at the Three TUlIg Inn. Several of the brethren were seen at an early hour parading the streets towards their lodge room as if determined to be in time for the proceed- ings lit the day; after initiating two brethren into their loyal institution they marched to the village church, where an excellent discourse was delivered by the Hev W. Bruce, Rector of St Nichol as, from Prov. iv, 26, 27. The service being ended, the procession reformed and after parading the principal streets they proceeded to the lodge room, where a most sumptuous repast was prepared by host and hostess Williams, for which due credit must be given them. The cloth being removed, the Queen, and several other loyal and patriotic toasts were drunk and dilly honoured, and among them the Rev William Bruce and the neighbo iriug gentlemen, hoping they wutild search minutely the laws of the order, and become supporters thereof. In the course of the evening several excellent addresses were delivered by brother Reynolds, from the Paradwys Lodge, Cowbridge, on the advantages of the order, and its tendency to make men appear in this world as they ought if they would conform to its precepts. We were visited by brother Win. Richards, Merthyr (on his way to Penmark) who is well known as a performer on the violin, and who had the kindness to favour us with several Welsh airs, &c when temperance, harmony, and sentiment were the order of the day, The evening being spent. leaving no doubt but that brotheiiy love anitniitedencit heart, they separated at an early hour for their respective houses, highly d il ightell with the proceed- ings of the Jay.- (p,.am a Correspondent.) MERTHYR' CnURen MISSIONARY SOCIETV.- Sermons will be preached in our parish church to-morrow, in aid of the funds of this excellent society. 1 he Rev Dr Doran, the deputation from the Society, will preach in the morning, at eleven, and a sermon will be preached in Welsh at three, and another at six in English, after each of which collections will be made, and we hope that these will be liberal, as the cause is deserving of all support from all who wish to provide at) "fain the mealls of giving instruction in the truths of ilik Gonpel to those who sit at present in thick darknet;s and the shadow t)f death." A public meeting will be held iij. the Girls' School Room, George Town, on Monday evening nejftt k lialf past six, when the deputation will give an interesting account of the operations of the society, and urge its claims to continued and increased support.
