NEW YEAR'S DINNERS TO THE I CARDIFF POOR. At the St. Mary's National Schools, Mount Stuart-square, on Thursday, a substantial dinner was given to the unsectarian poor of Cardiff Docks and Grangetown. The bill of fare was a liberal one, comprising roast beef, mutton, pork, vegetables, and plum pudding. About 400 were thus entertained, who, after the repast, joined in a most cardial vote of thanks to the givers. The same evening, about 500 children from the above-named districts, includ- ing specially the very poor and little cared for, were supplied with a capital tea. This was followed by a magic lantern entertainment, pre- sided over by the Rev. J. R. Phillips, of the mission ship Thisbe, who had been kindly granted for use a large number of slides by Mr Thatcher and Mr Biggs, opticians. Finally, the children, who seemed by their demonstrations to have spent a most rapturous evening, were presented each with some little article from an imposing Christmas tree. They were also the recipients of four oranges each and a ticket for the pantomime at the Cardiff Theatre this afternoon, the latter the gift of Mr h letch ^-r. Addresses were delivered by the liev. A._G. Russell (St. Stephen's Church) and others. The ten and all the arrangements were got up by Dr. Laen, Mr J. J. Ames, and Mr W. Burrow. Several ladies also assisted, especially in decora- ting the Christmas tree.
