DINAS MAWDDWY. LECTURE.—On Thursday week a lecture was delivered at the Methodist Chapel, Dinas, by the Rev. John Davies, Nerquis, the subject being "Two Brothers and an Uncle. The proceeds of tickets sold, at one shilling each, amounted to a g-iod sum, and is intended to defray the expenses of the Methodist Chapel recently erected, and shortly to be opened. Several of the audience were disappointed to and the lecture was but thewellknown history of Esau and his brother Jacob, and the "uncle" was Laban. The lecture would be edifying to persons who were not pre- viously acquainted with Scripture history. COMPETITIVE MEETING.On Friday week a com- petitive meeting was held at the Methodist Chapel, Dinas, the competitors being members of the Sunday School Union of Cemmaes, Aberangel, Camlan, Llan- wrin, and Dinas. The programme contained competi- tions in reciting, reading, singing, poetry, on the modu- lator, &c. The adjudications for all were given, also prizes, both in books and in money. The singing was very creditable to the Cemmaes and Llanwriu choirs. Solos were sung by Mr Williams in a very pleasing man- ner, and most of the prizes were carried off by the Cem- maesites. These meetings will be held annually, and will prove beneficial, having a tendency to show up the talent of young men. The chapel was crowded.
