The lecturer, in a clear and forcible manner. traced the origin and history of electricity in its primitive forma, and its progrea" to the present etate of ctcctriu sctcaco, !ns lecture with diagrams a"d clever njeehanical experiments, which where highly interesting and instructive. The lecturer, who was most listened to by a very large audience, wat frequently applauded, and at the conclusion the chah'nja.n, Mr. T. H.u]e Owen, tnoved a hearty vote of thanks to him, and expressed a wish that at some further time the lecturer would again favour them with a future lecture on the same subject.

HAVE RFC BDWEST Gosi'EL TEMPERANCE MissioN.—We are pleased to be able to state that the interest which was manifested at the commencement of this mission does not abate, judging by the num- bers which still continues to attend the Sunday even- ing services at the Masonic Hall. We think it only due to say that the meetings hold on the last feur or five Sundays, have been severally addressed by the Rev. Dr. Benj. La Trobe, Mr John Jenkins of this town, Rev. W. Davies, pastor of Pope Hill, Mr D. H. Road, of Pembroke Dock, and the Rev. J. Jonoa, of Brecon. Each of these gentlemen in the course of most interesting addresses attacked the drink question from a diSorent stand point, so that the meetings instead of becoming monotonous are decidedly the opposite. Fresh pledges are taken every Sunday, twelve being registered at the last meeting-. There arc two or three matters which ought to be seon to why don't those who adopt the blue wear it? In larger towns the little bit of ribbon may be seen on many a, coat, but in our town it is conspicuous by its I ahsence, only a stray bit being seen now and then. We should like to see this altered. An improvement might also be made in the singing, which, although not bad, might be decidedly better than it is. The singing ought certainly to take a prominent position at these meetings. It would appear to the audience that there are only about a dozen in the choir, whereas we have been informed they muster over thirty. Why do not they attend on Sunday evenings? We think if these little matters were attended to, it would greatly promote the success of these Sunday evening gatherings. On Sunday evening next we understand the add'ess is to be given by Mrs Rouse, and that the Mayor, Mr W. Farrow, is to be chairman. CONCERT AT THE UN ION.-A very enjoy- able entertainment consisting of ruuic and readings was given at the Workhouse, under the genial presidency of the Rev. G. C. Hilbers, by the Misses Standard, and other local amateurs on Thursday evening. The Schoolroom had been decorated in the most tasteful manner by the inmates, under tha skilful direction of Mr and Mrs Thomas, and formed as pretty and suitable a concert room as one could wish to see. The bright faces and smiles of the audience testified to the thorough enjoyment of the various pieces, and amply rewarded the ladies who had organised the treat for their kindness and efforts in bringing it to so successful an issue. A glance at the subjoined programme will show that a good bill of fare had been provided, and it goes without saying that the songs, pianforte pieces, &c., were given in the best style by the performers, and were received with rapturous applause. Among the visitors wo noticed Miss Owen, of Withybusb, (who was cheered to the echo when Mr Hilbers announced that it is her intention to present a harmonium to the Institution as a Christmas gift for the inmates,) Mr and Mrs Foster, Mi and Mrs Standard, Miss Rule Owen, Mrs Wrenford, Mrs Munro, the Misses Meyler and others. The glees were sung by a party consisting of Mrs and Miss Hilbers, and members of St. Thomas Choir. Mr Llewellin Brigatocke kindly lent the splendid piano for the occasion, and Mr T. James conveyed it t. f1'nm -H"" LfU.V õ" UfJU"'l¡VUJ.J'LUt:: Stannard arc to be congratulated on the success of this concert, and we hope that others will follow with another entertainment at no distant date.
