Jerusalem, Nantyffyllon.—Very large con- gregations assembled at the above place last Saturday evening and on Sunday, on the oc- casion of the anniversary services, when the Rev. Philip Jones, Capel Newydd, Llanelly, officiated. Needless to say the name of the rev. gentleman is enough in the Maestog Valley, as in other places, to attract a crowd. At these meetings lie was at his best, and his elaborate and telling sermons were much en- joyed. This young cause is thriving and do- ing very good work in the plaoe. It has greatly improved in its congregational sing- ing since Mr. W. B. Evans was appoin- ted its organist. Mr. Joseph Mason conduc- bed the singing throughout.
