A BYD Y GAN. GAN PEDR ALAW, Mus.Bac. MR. DAVID JONES.-Gan fod ei hanes yn y rhifyn presennol, ymfoddlonaf yma yn unig ar ddweyd, ar ran fy hun a gwyr y gan ereill yn Llundain, fod ein cydymdeimlad llwyraf a theulu Mr. Jones yn eu galar ar ei golli. Pery dylanwad ei wasanaeth i gan- iadaeth y cysegr yn hir-fel dylanwad ei fywyd hardd. Gresyn meddwl na chawn mwyach weled ei wyneb-pryd siriol! ond rhaid ini ddysgu'r wers anhawdd—i adael i angeu gipio ein cyffeillion hoff oddiarnom ac i ninnau fod yn gryf hyd y diwedd GWYL Y PLANT. — Diolch am nodiad- au Mr. Dan Price-i law ynrhy ddiweddar i'r rhifyn diweddaf. Gan fod y marciau," &c., eisoes wedi eu rhoddi, prin y gelwir am fanylion pellach. WILLIAM OWEN, PRYSGOL.—Y mae symud- iad ar droed i godi cof-golofn i'r cerddor hwn. Gobeithio y llwyddir. MR.

"MYNORYDD.I'r Cymry ydynt yn byw yn Llundain ers blynyddau, sicr yw fod enw y gwr hwn yn hysbys ac anwyl. Yr oedd yn golofn gref i'r "achos" yn Nassau Street, ac felly hefyd am ysbaid yn Charing Cross Road. Hawdd canfod oddiwrtho y taflai frwdfrydedd i unrhyw beth yr ymgymerai ag ef. Yr oedd yn dra hoff o gerddoriaeth, ac yn gerddor o chwaeth goeth. Byddai ymweliad a Chapel Nassau Street a Charing Cross, pan yr oedd efe yn "dechreu y canu," yn brawf sicr o hyn. Y mae yn ei fedd ers blynyddau ond fe sieryd y cais isod yn uchel am ei sel dros, a'i gariad ato, Dy Ddnw a'r Mawl a weddai iddo. Wrth edrych dros ei ysgrifau, &c, daeth ei ferch-sef yr eawog Mrs. Mary Davies-o hyd i'r copi a ganlyn, ac, wedi ei dalfyru, anrhegodd fi ag ef. Heb ychwaneg o Rag- ymadrodd wele'r ysgrif:— A PETITION To the Deacons of the Calvinistic Methodists in Grafton Street, assembled 1850. Sirs,-We, the undersigned, having for some months past been favoured through your liberality, with permission to remain in the Chapel of Grafton Street on Sunday evening for one hour after the singing meeting, for the purpose of learning and practising sacred pieces, Anthems, and for selecting Sacred Music for the service of the Chapel and for Christmas, have of late heard with sincere regret the complaints you have made respecting this grant, and are extremely sorry that you have forbidden us the opportunity you had hitherto permitted. One of your objections is, we understand, the custom of ;the chapels. In our humble opinion it is a matter of Right or Wrong. and not a mere matter of Fashion or Custom, You confess you do not accuse us of any impropriety of conduct, or that we do not consider the place we are in at the time. You object to the Chapel being open. We beg to assert it is as positively closed as when no one is there Both the bolts are fastened and when we put the lights out in the chapel (as we always do when we are permitted to enter the vestry), and when we shut the vestry door, neither sound can be heard, nor can light be seen from the street. We beg you to consider this point in par- ticular, as our exclusion from the vestry makes a material difference to the fact of the Chapel being open or not, especially as one of your principal objections is the" appear- ance of the matter in the eyes of the world —the world, ever ready to caluminate Religion in the minutest and most trivial detail We should feel very happy if some of the Deacons were present during our practice, and are sorry it is inconvenient, owing to different circumstances. Your p tst kindness teaches us to feel grateful, and we thank you for the permis- sion you have previously given or permitted to exist, but we firmly believe that you are scarcely aware of the consequences that will most probably ensue from pursuing this line of conduct—the deprivation of this privilege. While we are in chapel or vestry we are certain not to give way to many things that we, no doubt, would do in a less important place. Sending us out of chapel does not send us home. Promenading the streets is not becoming to a religious community. Coffee shops are not fit places for persons to go to who have been listening to sermons. Coffee shops where secular periodicals and newspapers abound Highly inappropriate reading on a Sunday night If reading is not induled in, conversation takes place, and anything but Religion is the subject con- versed upon. Now, our desire is to avoid all this that is the reason why some of us come all the way from the City after the service, in order to practice Sacred Music in chapel, where we are most likely to end the day in a proper manner. If the consumption of the one light of gas is an objection, we are most willing to abandon it and would be happy to make you compensation for its past use, and would use our candle for the future, as we wish not to put you to any inconvenience, risk, or ex- pense. IE it is your pleasure we will use no gas nor burn fire. [Dyna sel !] Sincerely hoping you will kindly consider these points and extend your past kindness to the future, gratefully we remain, Yoxir humble Petitioners- William Davis (" Mynorydd ") Ebenezer Price f William Williams William Ellis Daniel Jones William Evans David Evans David Griffiths Jenkin Rees Cornelius Griffiths. Note. February 1855. This petition was never answered.
