      A correspondent points out that Mr. John MORDY, who was a most energtic member of the Workington Burial Board, was most strenuous in his opposition to placing a stone cross upon the Nonconformist Chapel at the Cemetery.
     This our correspondent remarks, is now all the more singular as a Congregational Chapel, in which Mr. MORDY takes a great interest, is now being surmounted by a most unmistakable cross.
     On Thursday evening, Mr. Francis PALIN gave a lecture at the Assembly Rooms, entitled, "Sketches among the London poor." The lecture was in connection with the Jubilee of the London City Mission, and was accompanied by a number of dissolving views of portraits and sketches taken from life.
     Mr. C. J. VALENTINE was announced to preside, but being called suddenly from home was unable to be present. There was only a thin attendance. The lecture was most interesting.
      Revival services have been conducted by Messrs. FINCH and CAULKER during the past fortnight, in the Primitive Methodist Chapel, at Great Clifton.
     The meetings were brought to a close by a supper, when over sixty adults sat down to the tables, which were presided over by Mrs. PATTERSON, Mrs. MONKHOUSE, Miss. WHITE, and the Misses. WEDGWOOD. At the conclusion of the supper, a most enjoyable hour was spent by the young folks singing hymns, Mr. FINCH accompanying on the violin, on which instrument he is a most skilful player.
