The winter session of Trinity Wesleyan Church's Musical and .Literary Society was brought to a close last night with a concert, which was attended by fully 300 persons ; the Rev. W. Baumber presiding. Songs were contributed by Miss Moyse, Messrs Barmby, James Jago, Blenkinsopp, Dall, and Jt. Smith; Mrs Baumber played a piano solo; Messrs J. Harlock, Stephens, and Birdsley gave readings ;'and Mr Corrigan a clarionet solo on airs from * The Bohemian Girl.' Mr Cook was accompanist. An enterta,inmen,t given by the members of the St. Paul's Young Me'a's Association in the Schoolroom last evening attracted a fair audienpe. A good programme of vocal and instrumental music was provided. Songs were given by Messrs A. Newbury ('The bugler*), W. Pavie ('Rocking'), R, B. Halley ('The Roll Call'), A. M'Carthy (' Killaloe'), and P. Power (' The angels are calling'). A duet (' Peaoe and war') was sung by Messrs N. Newbury and Halley, a chorus ('Jingle bells') was rendered by a company, and the orchestra gave two selections. A farce entitled ' Gregory's Blunders ' was given in a very creditable manner, the various characters being sustained by members of the Association, and a comedietta (' Uncle's Will') brought a good programme to a close. During an interval in the programme a vote of thanks was, on the motion of Archdeacon Edwards, awarded the performers. There was a satisfactory attendance at St. John's Hall, Roslyn, last evening, when a concert was given in aid of the church funds. The unpropitious weather which last night prevailed doubtless prevented many from attending, but a handsome sum should nevertheless be realised for the object itf view. The programme was a lengthy but varied one, the various items being enjoyed and duly r ec °g n i se d by those present. Mrs Palmer's pianoforte solo 9 were skilfully executed ; Mrs sang ' The last muster,' besides taking part with Mr Densem in a comic vocal selection ; Messrs Smith, Umbers, Densem, Jones, Hunter, and Young contributed vocal selections, which were highly appreciated, the respective solos of Messrs Densem and % oupg being heartily applauded. Mr J. Coombe's vioiiu palo was, of course, worthy of him, and was heard with muoh acceptance ; while Messrs H, Martin and Baker's banjo solos, together with those of Mr Corrigan ((clarionet) and Mr T, Chapman (cornet), pleased the audience greatly. Messrs Young, Densem, Hunter, pmfthj Towsey, and Jones contributed in godid'siyje a number of part songs. Mr A. H. Ross (M.fT.it..) on behalf of the Committee, the services of the performers.
