LITERAKY MEETING.—A literary meeting on a very ex- tensive scale came off on Friday week at the Calvinistic Methodist chapel in this town, when the well-known Tan y Marian and "Ab Alaw were announced to be firesent, but owing to an affliction occurring in Ab Alaw's amily, he was not able to attend. However, the people's 'enthusiasm never ceased and the place was thronged. At the afternoon meeting, which commenced at two o'clock, the place was well ffted, but the evening meeting was such a one as is rarely or ever seen at Corwen. The building before six o'clock, the time to commence, was so crowded as to leave a very large number outside, who failed to get admission. It Was reckoned that there were between 800 and 900 present and, adds our correspondent, they were packed like "herrings in a barrel, bint not quite so quiet." The meeting turned out a decided success, and great praise is attributable to Mr Owen and Mr Eryr Alwen, the two secretaries, for their unwearied exertions in arranging matters. The first meeting commenced at two p.m., When the Rev. H. C. Williams presided, and the following programme was very successfully gone through :—Address Toy the Chairman.- Address, by the Bards.
