T- ow gt itRtv fetfte. 'SS^3STW-a=r. THE NEW W EIGH-BBIDGE.- This great conveni- ence has at length been completed, a very neat little weighing office being erected inside the market- place. The works' committee inspected the contract on Monday, and were gratified at the admirable manner in which the work had been performed by Mr Cribb, THE ToWN Corxom.-We are authorised to state that Mr. G. May has abandoned his intention of resigning his seat in the Town Council. CRYNANT NATIONAL SCHOOL.—We had the gratifi- cation last Christmas of recording the success of Mrs. Corker in the Government examination for certificates, and we have now the pleasure of stating that Her Majesty's inspector, the Rev. J. B. Binns, recently inspected and examined the scholars attend- ing the above school. The results must have been highly gratifying to the managers, a very high meed of praise having been communicated to the Rev. D. Hanmer Griffith, who is at present in Lon- don, by the inspector, at the conclusion of his report, on the commendable state of the school generally. THE STATTTTB FAin.-The November hiring fair was held on Wednesday, when a very large number of servants, male and female stood the statutes." Men servants were especially numerous. There were, however, fewer females present than usual. Wages asked were higher than last year. Very few cases of drunkenness were observable. The most noticeable was a ragged dissipated blackguard who attempted to create a disturbance in the lobby of Alderman Davies' schools. The threat of sending for a police constable however, soon made the scamp vanish. The horse fair was very poorly attended, buyers and sellers being alike scarce. HANDSOME PRESENT TO THE MECHANICS' INSTI- TUTE.—Mr. T. Barry, watchmaker and jeweller, of Green-street, has. presented to the Mechanics' In- stitute a handsome eight-day clock. The offer was made, unsolicited and unexpected, and as it will supply a want, which has long been felt as an inconvenience at the reading room, the members will doubtless appreciate the liberality of the donor as it deserves.
