An interesting debate on Is denominationalism avourable to the advancement of Christianity was the programme of the Literary Society last Saturday evening. The openers were Mr. W. H.

The audience was not very numerous, and the chair was occupied by Mr. Glyn Evans. Mr. W. H. Thomas in opening for the affirmative side of the subject dwelt very largely on the histor- Ical proofs of the usefulness of denominationalism, and argued very closely on the commercial-like SuPeriority of that system, in creating a rival of another section, maintaining that in such rivalry alone ^as honest advancement and real enthusiasm. He ePrecated sectarianism, which he classed as the out- p°me of fanatic denominationalists, and hoped to see 1 s evil effects effaced from our midst. Mr. Morris Thomas introduced a deal of vigour enthusiasm, based evidently on thorough con- ction, in opposing the subject. He argued that p th splitting- up of Christianity was inconsistent with e teachings of the Gospel.

Mr. Emlyn Davies. Dadganwyd hefyd gan gor y merched, parti o'r meibion, a chan gor y capel. Yr oedd y canu ar y cyfan yn rhagorol, a gorfu i rai o honynt ail ganu. Da oedd genyf weled y gantores enwog Miss Elliott yn mhlith y Cymry, yr hon a wnaeth ei rhan yn ardderchog. Cafwyd anerchiadau brwd- frydig gan Timothy Davies, Ysw., y cadeirydd, y Parch. J. Cynddylan Jones, D.D., a'r Parch. J. E. Davies, M.A., gweinidog y lie. Yr oedd yn gyng- herdd o chwaeth uchel, ac yn deilwng o'r ty yn mha un yr oedd yn cael ei gynal.

The 4th monthly Concert was held at the above chapel, on the 18th inst., when a lengthy programme was gone through. The concert was given entirely by local talent, and some of the performers deserve genuine praise for the admirable way in which they rendered the songs and recitations. A pianoforte duet by Miss Sally Jenkins and Miss Jennie Jones made a very good opening, and the young ladies are to be commended on the way they played. Among the chief features were the good rendering of "Rock me to sleep mother," by Miss Harriet Edwards, and Home dearie home," by Miss May John. The delivery of the Old arm chair," by Miss Lizzie Roberts, deserves great praise, as do the recitations by Miss Jennie Morgan, Miss Annie Morgan, Master W. A. Jones and Mr. W. Jones. A dialogue, entitled Mrs. Thompson and her daughters," came in for a good round of applause, the performers being Miss Myfanwy Wood, Miss Harriet Edwards and Miss Maggie Lewis. Messrs. W. Lewis, W. R. Watkins, W. Jones, J. Hughes, Rees and D. L. Evans, had their usual success. As a novelty a sight-singing contest was introduced which proved very interesting; three singing the piece correct, viz. Miss Harriet Edwards, Master David Lewis, and Mr. Rees. Mr.
