Senghenydd. On Saturday last an Eisteddfod was held at the Gwernymilwr Assembly Room in connec- tion with the English Congregationalists. There was a fairly good attendance. The chair was ably occupied by Mr E. Shaw, M.E. Mr G. Marsden presided at the piano. The adjudica- tors were: Music, Messrs E. Evans, Aber, and T. Price, Hawthorn; poetry, etc., Rev W. Mor- ris, Cardiff. We append the list of successful competitors: Soprano solo, Mrs L. Davies; alto solo, Master Johnny Morgan; tenor solo, Messrs R. C. Davies, Tylorstown, and Tom James, Cardiff; bass solo, Mr J. T. Jones, love letter, Mr William Evans and Mr J, Ro- berts: prize ba?s, Miss Fletcher, Groeswen; alto solo (girls), Miss M. Wigley; recitation for girls, Miss Mary E. Williams; impromptu de- bate, Messrs J. Roberts and J. D. Perkins; essay on "Independency in the Parish of Eglwys- ilan," Rev C. T. Thomas, Whitecross; impromp- tu speech, Mr J. Roberts; catch, Mr J. Edwards Groeswen, and friends. It is pleasant to know that the eisteddfod was in every way a success, which is due to the energy displayed by the committee, of which Mr Lewis Rees was secre- tary. On Sunday and Monday the first anniversary services in connection with the English Baptists were held. The attendance was fairly good ,and able sermons were delivered by the Revs J. Penberthery, Tredegar; W. Williams, Barry Dock; A. O. Ilopltns, Caerphilly; and E. Lewis, Treforest. The Welsh friends very kindly placed their chapel at their disposal on Sunday afternoon and on Monday. The second annual outing in connection with the Chamber of Trade took place on Thursday. The weather was all that could be desired, and a large number availed themselves of the oppor- tunity of having a splendid trip at a reasonable ccst. Starting from Senghenydd with the ordi- nary 8.10 a.m. train, the party were driven through to Cardiff (thanks to the Rhymney Railway Company) arriving at Cardiff about 8.45, giving ample time to walk to the Docks time for the boat. Reaching Weston the party enjoyed themselves by driving, cycling and don- key riding, At seven o'clock the boat was timed to return, and, judging by their punctuality, the trippers seemed quite fit for a. rest, A special train conveyed the party from Cardiff at 9.30 p.m., arriving at Senghenydd about 10.10. We are pleased to, understand that all thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and that the trip was a grand success. A meeting in connection with the temperance cause was held at the Methodist Vestry on Saturday, when an interesting programme, con- sisting of songs, recitations and speeches, was gone through.
