LLANDYSSUL.â On Tuesday last, the inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood (determined not to be behind other places in their exhibition of loyalty and attachment to our illustrious Hoyal family), cei?b ated the au-pi?iuus event of the marriage of the Prince of Waies, in a style not unf.orlhy a town of far higher pretensious to importance and signifi- cance. The eientful morning, (which was magnificent in point of weather) was ushered in by tse merry peals of the old bells" which continued chiming at intervals during the day and to a late hour at night. Business was entirely suspended and the streets presented a very lively and ani- mating appearance. About 2 o'clock a vast concourse of people, young and old, rich and poor, assembled in the mea- dow iu front of the Wilk's Head, to witness and take part in some rustic sports, which were announced to be then ex- hibited, M well its in some other plaoei in and about the town. These consisted of foot races by men and boys, wo- men and girls, wheeling barrows blindfolded, jumping, donkey races, running in sacks, by both men and women, climtiiiig a greased pole, &0, &c. In the evening, bonfires w> r â tilazing on some of the surrounding hills, whilst many of toe houses were very fairly illuminated. A brass band, accompanied by a large crowd, some bearing torches, ifre- bars, &o., paraded the streets, occasionally discnarging firearms, and shouting their hearty wishes for the welfare and happinpss of the future Kirg and Queen of England. The whole affair was very pleasingly conducted and ter. minated in a most agreeable manner. The inhabitants have to thank those more immediately concerned in the manage- lueut of the rejoicings for toe tact and skill displayed by j tbem throughout the whole proceedings. TltEGARON.âHEJOICI.VGS. â The inhabitants of this anciant town being mindful of the auspicious day on the 10 h inst., most heartily joined in the general demonstra- tions of joy displayed upon the occasion of the marriage of the Prince of Wales, and testified their loyalty in pleasing displays. At 2 o'clock the children of the British School, untlpr their able and worthy master, Mr. Evan Jones, were marshalled in the Square adjoining the -schoolroom, and marched in procession through the town, when they re- turned to the schoolroom, where they were regaled with a plentiful supply of tea and cake, under the direction of a committee of ladies. The little ones were decked out nicely with rosettes and other devices, and enjoyed themselves well. A brass band played iri the town at 7 o'clock. A concert, under the leadership of Mr. John Davies, was aiven in the long room at the Talbot Hotel. The room was neatly arranged and tastefully decorated. The singing was highly applauded, and the young women forming the choir, and Mr. Davies, were complimented by the audience for their excellent performance. In different parts of the town fireworks were continually displayed.

All the shops were closed, and business was entirely suspended during the day. The streets were tastefully decorated with the flags of different nations; the Bank and the Feather's Hotel were objects of great attraction and ad- miration. In the afternoon several persons indulged in gvmnastic sports, which afforded great amusement to the pirties who took part in them. But what attracted the greatest attention and admiration was the procession through the town of the National School children to the number of two hundred and twenty, preceded by the brass band of the place After parading the streets, the children were entertained to tea and cake at the schoolroom. The children are indebted to Mr. Morgan, the clergyman, for the treat, who was ably and warmly supported by the elite of the place and neighbourhood. After tea was over en- thusiastic cheers were given for the Prince and Princess of Wales. Two hundred and forty sat down to tea. Several songs were also sung.

Much credit is due to the Manager of the Bank for his indefatigable activity to get up the sports of the day.
