The death of Alderman Pride at his resi- dence in Cardiff took place on Thursday. The deceased gentleman, who was in the 64th year of his age, had resided in Cardiff for more than 40 )ears, during the latter half of which he had devoted himself with remark- able zeal and success to the public business of the town. On Thursday, in the House of Commons, Mr. Dillwyn brought forward a motion de. claring that it was of national importance that telegraphic communication between Lundy Island and the mainland should be es. tablished, and in the course of a speech con. tended that the proposition for the expense of the undertaking- to be borne by the neigh- bouring ports was unsound, inasmuch as vessels from a distance, and not tkose issuing from neighbouring ports, were in the habit of taking refuge off the island. After some discussion, Lord John Manners said he re- garded the extension as an unremunorative one, but if an application on the subject was made to the Treasury he would throw no ob. stacle in the way. A meeting was held on Thursday evening, in Tredegarville National Schoolroom, Cardiff, to consider what steps should be taken to pro- vide church accommodation for the parish. A committee was formed to get 30 or more geu- tlemen to guarantee the sum of t3,000 for the endowment of the district, and, as a suitable church for the parish would cost B8,000, it was decided to erect a temporary iron struc- ture, at a cost of about JE700, for use uutil a sum approximate to the estimated value of the permanent edifice is secured. The resumed inquiry relative to the death of William Corner, an engine-driver, em. ployed by the Great Western Railway Com- IlImy. who was killed in the collision near Mountsiu Ash, Rome three weeks ago, was opened at A berdare, on Thursday, and, after additional evidence bad been taken, was adjourned until the 12th of July. Major- General Hutchinson, R.E., as representing the Board of Trade, was present. The will of the late Mr. William Prichard, J.P, of Crofta, Llantrisant, who died in March last, has just been proved in the Llan. daff District Registry under £ 30,000. At Trodegar, on Thursday, George Buttrey, haulier, Blaina, v, as charged with marrying during the time of his lawful wife being alive. In 1863 prisoner married Martha Colenso, in 1867 Elizabeth Magor, and in 1873 Caroline Grist, all three of whom are living. Prisoner was remanded. A resolution was passed on Thursday, at the meeting of the Swansea Board of Guar- dians, declining to accopt the resignation of Mr. Llewellyn Davies, poor-rate collector, for the hamlets of Clase, and ordering an in. spection of his books and accounta by a committee.
