SWANSEA. THE GUILDHALL EEADINGS.âOn Thursday evening, the 22nd inst, a capital prograninie was once more pre- sented to the audience by the indefatigable exertions of the Rev. G. P. Evans, and the committee associated with him. It was the best of the third series of these reunions, and notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather there was a full attendance. Mr. H. H. Horman Fisher pre- sided, and opened the concert by remarking that it was impossible to praise too highly the energy which Mr. Evans and his coadjutors had displayed throughout the whole of these entertainments. Mr. Evans's object had been twofold first to provide a healthy and highly moral entertainment for a large class of people in Swansea; and secondly, to raise funds for the support of that splen- did institution the Swansea, Hospital (applause). The Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers' band performed a number of selections, which the audience highly applauded. Mr. J. Davies and Miss Evans sang each a song Very creditably, and Mr G. Cynon's song received an encore. The Morns' ton Madrigal Society gave proof of efficiency and careful training. MissGfiBr'ssoiig. "Thsjmiirnifetbflhe shell,"was much ajjpreciated. Master and Miss Jones, 9 and i0 yeats of age, sang a duet, which gave tokens of much promise, and was heartily received. The star of the evening, judg- ing from the reception and the eiicdres given, was Mr. E. Crapper, who did the tbmiqiie in Poor Miss Wobbin- son," and in rendering, his awfully funny song, Perhaps she's on the rdilWa^j" in Ka^ital style, and,With great effect. Miss Powell kindly presided at the pianoforte as usual. We understand the last concert of the above com- mittee will be given in the Music Hall, on Monday, February 26th, when all the talent will muster in force, and everybody will be present to close a succession of very deserving entertainments. NEGRO MELODISTS.âThe negro melodists have been charming Swansea audiences for the last three evenings. Little Roberts has again and again been received with great enthusiasm. His peculiar and unique delineation of negro life is very amtonisliina. Every member of this troupe is a professional man, highly trained, and endoWed with remarkable powers. This evening is their last enter- tainment, which will be held as usual in the Swansea Music Hall. GORWYDD COLLIERIES.âWe understand that these valuable collieries have been sold by Mr. Sterry to the Ystalyfera Tin-plate and Iron Company, Swansea Valley. Mr. Sterry has given up these collieries, and is now en- gaged sinking new pits on the Cameron estate. FORESTFACH COLLIERY.âWe understand that the Lan- dore Steel and Iron Company have purchased this colliery from Mr. Thomas Glasbrook. CORRECTION.âWe are requested to state that the iron rolled at the Landore Works weighs 14, and not 18, grains, as stated. It was the work of Mr. Owen Francis. YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION.âMr. Solomon, of Cleveland-terrace, has recently been appointed to the secretaryship of this institution. For a long time past the association has been languishing for some reasons or other, but hopes are entertained now that the institution may make a fresh start, and eventually root itself in the affec- tion of the Christian young men of Swansea.
