CON WIL CAIO. THE OGOFAU GOLD MiNEs. -The crushing and assaying machinery are in course of being planted, and the tramway is fast approaching completion. During the week fresh gangs of miners have been taken on, and judging from the bustle and stir the scene presents, it is to be hoped that the fame of the romantic and historic mine is on the eve of being resuscitated. ENTERTAINMENT. The annual entertainment in connection with the Calvinistic Methodist Sunday School of the above place, was held on Friday, the 23rd inst., the Rev. T. Phillips, pastor, acting as chairman. The proceedings, guided by an unusually long programme, were of a miscellaneous character. The weather was anything but what could be desired to ensure the success of the meeting, consequently the attendance was not so large as usual. The chair- man having spoken, called the "bards" to favour those assembled with the effusions of the muae. To this invitation two of the noble fraternity responded, and by dint of astute earing, one was able to discover that the muse had been invoked in no unpromising manner. The children came off well in their respective parts. The rendering of "Rhwyfa dy gwch ynmlaen," by Cor yr Aelwyd, led by the baton (which by the bye was a spectacle case) of Mr Morgan, of Maesgadock, elicited hearty aud well earned cheering. The "Cor" was almost entirely composed of Mr Morgans's servants and tenants, and judging from its performance on Friday night, one may not go wrong in auguring a career of no mean repute to it. Seven items were competitive. The impromptu reading of a non-punctuated piece was won by David Richards, Troedrhiw Wm. Evans, Sexton's Arms, carried off the prize for the bass solo while Eos Caio the only competitor on the soprano solo, was adjudged worthy of the winning standard. In the competition for the best speech on "The advantages accruing from early rising," Tom Lewis, Garth-a boy of eleven summers came first. His speech was delivered with such telling actions, that all present were quite surprised at the performance of the young prodigy T. S. Thomas, Caio, for writing one of Hiraethog's hymns, out of 13 competitors, came first. The singing of the "Friallen" by the Conwil Caio prize choir, brought the proceedings to a very happy termination, and when the ticket seller's till had been viewed it proved that the meeting had also been the means of reaping a very satisfactory balance.
