ABERSYCHAN. REDUCTION OF W AGES.-Ã notice was posted up in the Iron-works here on Saturday week to the effect that in one month a general reduction of wages would come into operation. This has been expected, but the workmen have "hoped against hope" that it would not take place. Provisions of every sort are so excessively dear, with but little signs of becoming cheaper, that this drop will fall heavily upon the men, who at present find it difficult to make "both ends maet." The iron trade is still de- pressed, and orders are scarce. Steam coal in fair demand, but house coal dull. SUNDAY SCHOOL ANWIVERSARY.âOnSunday last, the anniversary services of the Wesleyan Sunday School were held, when three eloquent sermons were delivered by Mr. H. Francis, of Bristol, to very numerous and attentive congregations. The collections made at each service were liberally responded to, and were in excess of those of last year. On Monday a public tea meeting was held in the chapel, when the scholars, teachers, and a goodly number of friends sat down to a capital tea. Afterwards they proceeded to a field kindly lent by Mr. T. E. Williams, in which they enjoyed themselves heartily, the ever-popular "kiss in the ring" being followed with glee by the children, and not overlooked by the elders. The school is in a flourishing condition, and the pieces recited and hymns sung by the children reflected great credit upon their teachers. FORESTERS' FBAST.-On Monday the Foresters' Club meeting at the Rose and Crown Inn, Garndiffaith, held their annual feast. They turned out in capital style, preceded by 16 or 18 foresters in characteristic dresses, and mounted on horses, followed by the Abersychan Brass Band. and walked to the residence- of W. B. Partridge, t.b.e:y TJC C*"P â i ll- â _r the residence of Edward Jones, Esq. A capital dinner was provided, and with the music of the band, and song and glass, a pleasant evening was spent. This club is very strong iu numbers, and is fast increasing.
