LIVERPOOL. (FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) LIVERPOOL, Thursday. Ladies in Uniform as Sanitary Inspectors.—I am pleased to find that the Health Committee of this city have, at last, appointed Lady Sani- tary Inspectors fc Liverpool! The names of the two ladies ai\_ Miss Ethel Frances Burton and Miss Sarah Esther Radclifie. Henceforth, these ladies will be on our Corporation otatf, as Inspectors of Nuisances, at a wage of 30s. per week, with uniform Welsh Home for Liverpool. — The Welsh Colony' of this great city are, at last, making a move in the right direction. A specially- convened meeting was held last evening (Wed- nesday), at Victoria C.M. chapel, Crosshall Street, to consider the advisability of establish- ing a Welsh Home in the city, for the benefit of the infirm, aged poor, and Welsh domestics generally. It is computed that there are about 4,000 Welsh servants in Liverpool. A full re port of the meeting, in Welsh, will appear in the BANER AC AMSEBAU CYMRU on Wednes day next. The LiUrciry Society of David Street Ch(tpel.- David Street stands out of Park Road (Dingle way), in the south end of Liverpool. In this vicinity is the C.M. chapel, the minister being the Rev. William Jones. The Literary Society of this church, I am pleased to say, is in a high- ly flourishin condition; and on Friday evening, the 5th instant, William Lewis, Esq., of Liver- pool, delivered, under the auspices of the a ove society, his interesting and instructive lecture on Caivinistic Methodism in Liverpool,' in the presence of a large and appreciative audience. The lecture was illustrated by diagrams by the lecturer, and by the well-known mecSical prac- titioner, Dr. Hugh R. Jones, of Grove Street. The Wrhh Tabernacle and its New Minister.— To chapel-goers in Wales, the 'Liverpool Welsh Tabernacle' has, ere now, become a household word. Probably, it is best known as the church of the late Reverend John Thomas, D.D. (the e Lladmerydd" of the Tyst). At his death, th G Tabernacle church became vacant; and in due course, they invited the Rev. Robert Thomas, of Glandwr (Swansea), to become the successor of Dr. Thomas. The invitation was accepted; but at the close of his third year, Mr. Thomas lesigned the pastorate, and subsequently left Liverpool for South Wales, to superintend his former charge. Hence, the Tabernacle pasto- rate became again vacant. Now, I am happy to say that this vacant pastorate has, at last, been filled, the new minister, the Rev. O. L. Roberts, late of Pwllheli, having commenced his ministry there last Sunday, the 7th instant. He preached at Great Mersey Street chapel in the morning, and at the Tabernacle in the e en- ing, his text being Hub. v. 8, 9. The induction service will take place on Tuesday evening, the 16th inst. b The Bethesda Choii- The Penrhyn Male Voice Choir, of 22 voices, has paid another visit to Liverpool. On Saturday evening the 6th inst., they gave a concert at the Picton Lecture Hall, William Brown Street. They sang, in the presence of a large audience, 4 Martyrs of the Arena' (De Rille), Seren y Brython (Ow in Alaw), Y Philistiaid,' and Llongau Madoc.' The other vocal items on the programme were ably sustained by Madame Katie Williams, R.A.M. (soprano), Mrs. Megan Jones Davies, R.A.M. (contralto), Mr. John Thomas (Tenor- ydd y Bryniau), and Mr. Gordon Williams (baritone) The harpist was Miss Jennie Parry (Telynores Lleifiad), and the talented Miss Maggie Evans, of I Gitana' fame, Birkenhead, presided at the piano. A small contingent of this celebrated choir, consisting of 15 voices, a so sang in Myrtle Street Baptist chapel at 8.15 on Sunday evening, by the kind permission of the Rev. John Thomas (pastor), and the dea- cons. It is the old church of the late Hugh Stowell Brown. The chapel has a seating ac- commodation for 1,800 people; but on this occa- sion, a crowded audience, considerably over 2,000 in numbers, assembled to listen to the old Welsh hymns and sacred choruses, which were effectively rendered by the Penrhyn Choristers. At the close, a collection was made, which amounted to f25 7s. lOd.
