EMIGRATION.âLarge parties of emisrrauts are aimo daily leaving the Hills, sortie few of THEM, like Lit. Bopeep's fbeep, leaving their tales behind them. It to be hoped that they will find their dreams realised will do better ahroad than they have been able to d here, and that when they have succeeded they will forget the old fulks at home," who will be glad 0 their help. THE GLEE AND MADKIGAL SOCIETY'S CONCERT VIH be held, it should be remembered, on Tuesday ad" The programme, as will be seen in our advertising CO' lumns, offers a well varied selection of very pleasiDjf music and as the ability of most of those who assist 11 well known, there can be no doubt that the concert wid be highly satisfactory to all capable of appreciatiof artistic compositions and careful execution. Witbou' disparagement to our local minstrels," we may obser*1 that ladies add to this class a refinement which cannol be expected when they are excluded. DONKEY- RIDING ACCIDENTS.âOn Wednesday ing a little Irish boy, whose mother resides in one OF those abominable slums" which are a disgrace to anj town, and which are too prevalent in Pontypool, WA* riding a donkey past the Cross, when the animal threlf him off and trampled upon him, inflicting such INJURIA that the poor little fellow was carried to his mother'* abode in great agony. At Pontnewynydd, on the after- noon of the same day, another accident, in which > donkey was concerned, occurred. This was of a ludicrous, though somewhat serious, nature. A teth- ered donkey having attracted the observation of a girl who was old euough to know better, she took it into HE' head to try some of the feats which she had seen per- l formed in a circus. She mounted the donkey AND then, fancying herself" the Star-spangled Sprite of tb» Silver Shower of Saraarcand" (alias Bet Smith), prco ceeded to stand on his back and elevate one of her legl in the manner which seems natural to "sprites." TW donkey, not being used to that style of riding, began TO fidget about, and the young lady fell down whack OO her back and was picked up insensible. PONTYPOOL SECOND APRIL FAIR was held onThurt- day, and though not so large as some of its predeces- sors, a good stroke of business was done amono- the farmers and dealers. Prices throughout showed an up* ward tendency. Of horses the supply was but limited, and good animals went at rather high figures; horned cattle were well represented, and cows and calves were rather plentiful, moving off briskly pigs were far from numerous, and dearer than ever of sheep, the numbet of couples penned was so small as to be hardly wortli mentioning. Although the day was quite sumraerlike. the pleasure fair was but so-so. Of good old-fashioned shows there were none. In their place were a couple of collections of stereoscopic slides, some half dozen rifle galleries, lots of fire-aways for nuts (one of these sported a wooden cannon which did immense execution among nine little puppets), a gorgeous round-about and » swinging boat to match, a couple of Cheap Jacks, all electrical or, as described by a longish individual in the crowd, "sheeakin" machine, and a queer affair for try ing the power of the elbow. There was also a conju* ring booth, not over brilliant. The fun of the fair" was so small as to be hardly perceptible.
