district Jtttelligmre. » MOUNTAIN ASH. A MEETING of the O'Connell branch of the Irish National League was held in the Catholic Schoolroom on Sunday, Mr James Roach in the chair. It was proposed, seconded, and carried that the secretary's balance-sheet for the past year be accepted. The Corresponding Secretary announced that he had sent the sum of E4 to the hon. sec. of the London Parnell Dafence Fund, and had received an acknowledgment of same. He had also sent £1 to the executive for cards of membership, and had duly received them.âIt was unanimously resolved, "That we deely deplore the unfortunate accident by which the late Denis Hennessey lost his life and Ireland a true and faithful son, and we sym- pathise heartily with his bereaved widow and ohildren in their distress." This being the day for electing officers for the ensuing twelve months, the following members were appointed, viz. li ev Father Sheehan, president; Mr John Cotter, vioe-president; Mr Daniel Daley (senior), financial secretary; Mr Daniel Daley (junior), assistant secretary; Mr Cornelius Lyons, treasurer; Mr J ames Deasy, correspond- ing secretary. Votes of thanks were given to the retiring officers for their past services. Twelve new members were enrolled MERTHYR. VIOLENT CONDUCT OF A HUSBAND.âAt the police-court on Monday-before Mr North and Mr Smyth-David Miles was fined 10S and costs, or, in default, 14 days' imprisonment, for being drunk and disorderly. He was similarly dealt with for damaging his ton's door, and on a charge of assaulting his wife at his son's house, where she now lives, he was bound over in JE20 to keep the peace for six months. THE LATE BOILER AOOIDBNT.-We regret to announce the death of Mr Councilior John Jenkins, Brynteg-terrace, Merthyr. On Wed- nesday Mr Jenkins, whilst inspectiug a bone- steaming boiler at Mrs Hallisey's. Pontstore- house, was injured by an explosion. Dr Ward and his assistant, Mr Ellison, had been in almost constant attendance since the lamentable ocourrence, and up till Sunday there was a faint hope of Mr Jenkins's recovery. In the after- noon of that dav, however, he began to get worse, and at 4 p.m. on Monday he expired, the immediate cause of death being failure of the heart consequent upon inflammation of the lungs. The deceased gentleman was a native of Merthyr, and was 51 years of age. He leaves a widow and nine children, for whom the greatest sympathy is felt. Mr Jenkins was a hard-working man, liberal in disposition, and a most useful member of the Merthyr Local Board of Health, of which body he had been associated for 12 years. He was recently elected on the Glamorgan County Council after a keen oontest in the Town Ward. He was well-known as the proprietor of the Thomastown Brickworks, and as manager of the foundry in Pontstorehouse. He took an active part in the affairs of the Merthyr New Building Society. Iu politics he held Radical views, and HO will long bo remembered as a manly poli- tician, courageous of his own, opinions, yet respectful of the opinions of those from whom he might differ.
