EISTEDDFOD AT CROSSVANE, NEAR PENTYRCH. On Monday last an eisteddfod was held in a field adjoining the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel ground, Crossvane. The eisteddfod was got up by a committee belonging to the chapel, with the object of making -a sum of money to wipe off a portion of the debt still remaining on the said building. The arrangements reflect credit on the committee. Competitions on the Fancy works were numerous, and the adjudicators testified to the excellent work on all the articles sent in for competition. Only one choir, that from the place, appeared in the chief competition, "Molwch yr Arglwydd," conducted by Mr T. I)avies,G.T.S.C., Ebbw Vale. The adjudicator testified that they were well worthy of the prize. The president was Mr Iestyn Williams, Miskin Manor, son of his Honour Judge Gwilym Williams, and the chair- man delivered an excellent address on the charac- teristics of the Welsh eisteddfodic institution, and the advantages it affords the young to culti- vate themselves in the various brahches of know- ledge, viz., music, poetry, and literature. It was a stirring address, delivered in English, but full of Welsh fire, the audience cheering re- peatedly during its delivery. The adjudicator of the singing, poetry, recitations, and essays, was Mr M. 0. Jones, Treherbert, who performed his arduous duties to the satisfaction of all present. Accompanist, Miss Griffiths, Gelliwen, who did her work most creditably, and worthy of special mention. Conductor, Rev William Williams, pastor of the Calvinistic Church. Secretary, Mr Griffiths, jun., Gelliwen Farm. We must men- tion one fact, that the greater portion of the pro- ceedings were carried on in English few Welsh words escaped now and then, but we sincerely hope that these friends of Crossvane have not for- gotten yr hen ddiarebOes y byd ir iaith Gym- raig. A lengthy list of prize competitions was then gone through. The president complied with a request made to him, and. sang a song at the close, which was loudly encored. Votes of thanks to the president, adjudicator, accompanist, con- ductor, Mr Morgan, Broviskin (for kindly lend- ing the field), and Mr D. Williams, Henstaflf Court (for lending canvass to erect the pavilion), were proposed in a humourous speech by the Rev T. Davies (Aberdarian), Pentyrch, and the finale, God save the Queen," was sung at the close.
