CARDIFF CHOJUL SOCIETY.âThis society gave ou Wednesd ay evening a grand concert for the benefit of the conductor, Mr D. C. Davies, at ood-streec Chapel. The weather was most un- favourable, the rain descending almost without cessation during the whole of the evening, but in spite of the weather there was a very large attend- ance. The programme, which was a very lengthy one, consisted of selections frlui Mendelssohn's "St. Paul" and Handel's Alessiah." Ti.e chorus portions were taken by the members of the (society, the "solos being rendered by Miss S. A. Williams, 11.A.M. (soprano), Miss ('. Novello Davies (contralto), Mr A. D. Jouet (tenor), Mr Nl. Edivardll (bass), the accompanists being Messrs C. Bacon and J. E. Deacon: conductor, Mr D. C. Davies. The selections embraced the most popular and well-kno .vn portions of these oratorios. They were probably selected to-bring out the qualities of those who rendered them but they equally illus- trated' the peculiar styles of the two greatest inusic-il composers. Mendelssohn's compositions are very difficult, and hi:i harmonies differ materialiy froui tho-e of Handel, and when thoroughly mastered there is a charm about them which we fail to find in others, but which to some is surpassed by the grandeur and flowing har- monies in the "Alessiaii." Miss S. A. Wil. liams is not a new comer. She has taken the leading part in several concerts, and in the por. tions which fell to her lot on Wednesday evening she sustained all the reputation she had formerly acquired Aliss C. N. Davies as a contralto is evidently gaining iu popular favour, but in the selection from "St. Paul's" she only once ap- peared, and that was in the recitative and air, And he journeyed, but the Lord is mindful." The loud applause that followed the concluding strains of the air bore ample testimony to her ability arid the power and control of her voice, which possesses considerable depth and quality. In the ".Messiah" she sang the beautiful air, He was despised," and was equally successful. In "St. Paul." Mr M. Edwards sane with excellent effect the air, "Cotis,i e them all;" and with the same c ire in the "Alessiah" "But ho may abide," and "Why do the nations." Air A. D. Jones gave from the Alessiah Comrort ye and "Every valley," and "Behold and see "and "Thou shalt break them." Both were well rendered, and Mr Jones wasloudlv applauded. The chorus portiocs were also given with abundant evidence of the careful training they had received from their con- ductor. The instrumentalists were all local musicians, and they rendered their parts with great skill. The audience testified their apprecia- tion of the ability of the performei-4 by frequent and loud applause. DISORDERLY.-At the borough police-court, on Wednesdayâbefore the Mayor and Aide-man Lewis-.Niary Davies, a woman of bad character, was seut to prison for seven days for being drunk in Crockherbtown, on Tuesday niht.Klleu Higgins, another young woman of bad character, was sent to prison for 10 days for behaving in a disorderly manner in St. Mary-street, on Tuesday night. SHOP ROBBERY.âEllen Foley, an old woman, was charged with stealing a loaf of bread from the shop of 'tlr John Henry Davies, baker and confectioner, Caroline-street. The prisoner was seen on Tuesday afternoon to walk into the shop of the prosecutor, take the loaf from the counter and leave directly. Mrs Davies followed her, over- took her a short distance off, brought her back to the shop, and took the loaf from her.âPrisoner denied that she s-ole the loaf, but alleged that she went into the shop to purchase it, but had no money to pay for it. The bench sent her to prison for seven days. STEALING A WATCH.âJames Edward Stephens, alias Farmer, was charged with stealing a watch and chain from the person of David Morris, a collier, Fenidale. Complainant was not piesent, but it was stated that complainant was one of the Ferndale colliers who paid a visit to Cardiff on Saturday. He went to the Temple Bar beerhouse, and while in the back yard, wheie the prisoner also was, he lost his watch. Complainant informed the landlord of his loss, and the prisoner on his way back was stopped by a woman named Gerrick, who was in Morris's company, but prisoner threatened to give her a black eye, and she, somewhat alarmed, let him go. Prisoner was apprehended on Tues- day night, but the watch had not been found. The Head Constable applied for a remand till Monday, which was granted. ASSAULTING THE POLICE, William Dwrer, a labourer, liying at Cauton, was charged with being drunk and assaulting P,C. Alfred Kicbards. Oil Tuesday afternoon the defendant was creating a disturbance iu Wellington-street, Can- ton, by offering to fight. The constable desired him to go away, but lie refused, and subsequently struck the constable on the face, tripped him up, and kicked him severely in the struggle on the ground. Defendant also attempted to kick 1 im several times when on the way to the police- station, The Head-constable gave him a bad character, and he was sent to prison for one month with hard labour. SINGULAR CHARGE AGAINST A BOARDING-HOUSE KEEPER.âWilliam Nicholls, a boarding-house keeper, of Bute-road, was charged with detaining £1 Is 4d, the money of Timothy McMullen, a seaman. Complainant alleged that he, in July last, after stopping at the defendant's two days, received an advance note for £ 1 15% and gave it to the defendant, who in [return gave him 4s in money and a stra v bed, an old blanket, a pair of pants, a cotton shirt, and a few other articles of the value of 13a 8d, including the two days' board. As the articles were rolled up and given to him just before he left with the vessel, he had no opportunity of examining them. He subse- quently sent a man up for the balance, and on his return to Cardiff he asked- the defendant for the balance, but only received a very discourteous reply. He then informed the Board of Trade of the circumstance, and they took the matter in hand. Defendant denied that the complainant ever lodged in his house and that he had anything to do with him. He called a runner for him named Ashley, who thought he might have cashed the complainant's note on his own account, as he was in the habit of doing a little business in that way, but lie could not swear positively. He, however, had no knowledge of the complainant, and no record that 1 e had cashed the note. Air Evans, the Superintendent of the Mercantile Marine Police, applied for the case to be remanded to enable him to call additional evidence, and the application was granted. THE VERY BEST VALUE.âW.
