CALVINISTIC WELSH METHODISM. A most magnificent donation has just been made to the Calvinistic Methodist Connexion by a lady who recently came into a very handsome fortune. The donation includes the princely sum of LIOO,000 for missionary work, zC20,000 for the Calvinistic Methodist College at Bala, and Y,1,800 each to three churches in Liverpool. The lady to whom the Connexion is indebted for this munificence is Mrs Roberts, formerly of Mold, who, con- jointly witn two otner sisters, nas jusc entered into possession of a fortune of several millions sterling amassed by her late brother, Mr William Thomas Blythe. Mr Blythe was a native of Mold, and at one time carried on a milk-selling business in Liverpool. Years ago he went out to seek his fortune, with what success is seen by the fact that he died possessed of immense landed estates in California and Australia. Mr Blythe, who was childless, died intestate. His sister, who has suddenly found herself elevated to affluence, was up to a few weeks ago only in very moderate circumstances. The intimation of her noble benefactions to the cause of Methodism will certainly be received with universal gratification. At present Mrs Roberts, who, by the way, is a widowed lady, is sojourning temporarily in Australia on business connected with her newly acquired property.
