HALKYN. WESLEYAN MEETING.—On Thursday evening and throughout Good Friday last. the annual preaching meeting was held in the Wesleyan Chapel, and was attended by large congregations. The ministers who occupied the pulpit at the several services were the Revs. Wm. Thomas (Mold), and Hugh Jones (Liverpool). DIABOLICAL ACT.-A few days ago a most atro- cious deed was committed a t the, Westminster Consols Mine, near the above village. A new rope had been attached to the turn-tree, and some miscreant cut it just where it was fastened to the kibble. The men were on the point of descending the shaft and getting into the kibble, which on being moved in- stantly fell to the bottom of the shaft. The cut in the rope was made underneath the knot and could not easily be detected. A more dastardly outrage could not be imagined. INFLUENCE, AFFECTION, AND KINDNESS" was the subject of a lecture delivered by the popular Miss M. A. Williams (Blaenllechau), at the Pantygo Baptist Chapel, on Wednesday evening. The chapel was crowded to excess, and the chair was occupied by Miss M. Glover Davies, Holywell. The proceeds of the lecture were in aid of the chapel funds. We understand that the talented young lady will lecture in various places in the neighbourhood in the course of the next few days. Votes of thanks were accorded the lecturer and Miss Davies for presiding in such an able manner, and the meeting terminated. NATIONAL SCHOOL. A very successful concert took place in the above school on Wednesday even- ing last, for the benefit of the bell-ringers of the Church.

In response to the numerous encores, she sang 4 The miller and the maid,' and the Sailor's letter,' in addition to the songs on the programme. Mr. Lambert sang with great taste and finish.
