    THE PRIMITIVE METHODISTS. The anniversary of the Primitive Methodist Sunday-school at this place was celebrated on Sunday and Tuesday last. On Sunday afternoon and evening, appropriate sermons were preached by Rev. W. Clulow, circuit minister. The scholars recited suitable pieces at each service in a creditable manner. In former years the congregations have been so large at the anniversaries of the school that one-half the people could not be accommodated in the chapel, causing considerable dissatisfaction, but this year a large tent was hired, and Mr. Bright very kindly gave his consent for it to be erected in his field adjoining the chapel. The tent, which is considered capable of accommodating 400 persons, was comfortably filled on each occasion. On Tuesday, about 300 people sat down to an excellent tea, provided in the chapel; and after tea, a public meeting was held in the tent, presided over by Mr. C. Weale, in the unavoidable absence of Mr. Wintersgill, of Ludlow, and addressed by Mr. Marshall, Mr. W. Weale, Mr. B. Weale, and Rev. W. Clulow. The collections on Sunday amounted to £8 11s. 6d., besides a subscription of £1 1s., and others promised. A hearty vote of thanks was given to all who had assisted.”
