Musical Lectures at Meltham.
The first of a series of lectures, concerts, &c., for the winter season at the Carlile Institute, was given on Monday evening, when the room was comfortably filled with an appreciative audience. The lecture was on "Drawing Room Music," the lecturer being Mr. Charles W. Wilkinson, of Leeds. Dr. Hickley presided. The lecturer illustrated his remarks by playing several choice compositions on the pianoforte, in a most excellent manner. The Rev. J. Johnaon proposed a vote of thanks to the lecturer, and this was seconded by Mr. J.R. Marshall, and replied to. The Rev. F. Oliver proposed a similar vote to the chairman, and this was seconded by Mr. R. Mellor.
