BRECON. MILITARY REDUCTIONS.âWe understand that in the course of this week the reductions ordered in the depot of the 15th Infantry, now quortered in Brecon barracks, will commence. The numbers to be discharged are 10 sergeants, 4 drummers, and 170 rank and file. In addition to these, 100 men will leave for Ceylon in the course of the spring. Several detachments will, however, be called in from the surrounding districts, which will bring the force at Brecon nearly up to its present standard. AURORA BOREALIS.â-The Silurian says that a very mag- nificent display of this phenomenon was witnessed from Brecon on Thursday night week. It was in its greatest brilliancy about eight o'clock, when the streamers of light assuming the shapes of bright clouds, intermingled with pillars and rays, extended from the north west to the north east, accompanied by the beautiful rosy hue peculiar to the Aurora. ENGLISH AND WELSH WORKMEN.âAt a dinner recently given by Mr. Hodges, the enterprising ironmonger of Bre- con, to the foreman and working staff of drainers, who have Z, been employed for eight or nine months on his new pur- chased farm of Trostrey, one of the drainers, a Welshman, remarked, that from the kind treatment he had received from his English fellow-workmen, if at any future time any of them came in his way, there should never go without a bed and a dinner, if it lay in his power to give them; whereupon Mr. Thomas Williams, mayor of Brecon, observed that he heard the remarks with sincere pleasure. It showed that the jealousies which had long existed between the two coun- tries was fast dying away, and it was full time they did so. England and Wales were governed by the same laws, and were.separated only by imaginary boundaries.
