The following facts are from the pen of the Rev. Thomas Rees of Beaufort:—" The Congregational, and the Calvinistic Methodist Churches at Ebbw-vale, in this county, are blessed with a large measure of Divine influence. At a prayer- meeting in the Independent chapel, on Monday evening the 12th instant, the attendance being unusually large, a person, who had been a member of the church for nearly twenty years, was requested to engage in prayer. Having uttered a few sentences, lie began to pray for the conversion of his aged father in a most pathetic manner. His feelings soon overpowered him, and in an instant the whole congregation were so affected, that they sobbed aloud, ‘When the excitement had in some measure subsided, the minister requested those of the hearers who had a desire to join the church, to remain behind. Thirteen did so, and amongst them was the father of this man. The grey-headed sinner came weeping to the communion-table to be spoken to.
