I CONWAY. The parap ,raph which appeared in the NORTH WAtJIS CHRONICLE, .last week, relating to the Dowager Erskbmr's Benefactior to the Living of Conway, is calculatedt& give a very erroneous impression of the full vahie of that Denefacti on. Lady Erskine had kindly allowed the Vi- car to hi ¡Id the house of Rose Hill, with the garden xad Pitddoe'.c, at -,t veiy low rent, which forms no criterim whatev er of the real value of the property. PE: (NY READINGS.—The last of a series of Peany Read mgs took place on Wednesday evening, in the BoFg Nati onal School-room; the Rev. M. Morgan in the cha>. The room, as it has been on all these occasion wa s crowded to excess. Contributions in reading, scmgv an.d music, followed each other in rapid succession; de- Fghting the audience, who were loud in their applaosat 'fhe success which has attended these interesting;m¡J. improving recreations is most gratifying to th,.u. po- moters. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Chairman de- livered the following address :—I have now the agreea- ble task of returning my warmest thanks to the kind friends who have so readily and efficiently contributed to the pleasant evenings we have enjoyed together. I trust, that, if spared, we shall, next winter, meet its a similar manner. Then, how glad shall we be to see time again, who have so kindly assisted us this season and we hope their good example will be followed by many others, so that a whole Band may stand ready with con- tributions either in reading, or in music. As for myselk I am sure, that, during the ensuing Summer, when I am reading, it will often come across my mind how such aucl such a passage might suit for a Penny Reading; and I hope that you will employ yourselves in your leiaaw hours, in collecting materials for a similar purpose—each following the bent of his own mind in Welsh or F-glimb. Some may select striking passages from biography cr history,—history, not as it was written formerly, giving a dry narrative of facts, but as it has been by recent authors, who seem to throw us back into the midst ctf days long past, aud to bring the remarkable charaetas who then lived, vividly before us. Others may choose travels, and transport us to regions long unkncowz6 but now laid open through the undaunted courage and persevering efforts of enterprising man. Then, agxin, what a field of enjoyment lies before us in Poetry, car- rying us, for a time at least, beyond the harrassing arntm of daily life, into the brighter spheres of the imagina- tion and when wearied with the toils of business, how refreshing to turn to the pages of those standard Weds of Fiction within the reach of us all—passages firm which will always tend to enliven our meetings. And how encouraging it is, that, whilst we are gatbering material for the benefit of our friends, we are at the same time so greatly improving and elevating our- minds. And you, our musical friends, who have daw so much to delight us, will you also not gather in htdt stores against the long dark evenings of next mater, remembering always in the choice of your selections' tbt e id and object of all music, as has been so ^trikii^ly and by the Poet Longfellow—that God sent his singers upon earth With songs of sadness and of mirth, That they may touch the hearts of men And bring them back to heav'n again. May we not hope, that, as there is a time for e —a time for recreation as well as for labour,—ind aw the great and beneficent Father of all haa miogjed m much that is pleasing and beautiful with what is neeea- sary to man, He will shed His blessing on our humble efforts to scatter a few flowers among the thorns and briars which will ever, more or less, spring up almg the path of life.
