Thomas Evans, Victoria Park, on the subject, To Be, or Not to Be. Married." The chair was occupied by Air. H. Raclclifie, and the leading in- habitants of Barry were those present, young people, too, forming a considerable portiop of the audience. The rev. gentlenian dealt with his attractive subject in his characteristic style, the lecture proving very interesting, amusing and instructive, and was frequently applauded. T.ie proceeds were in aid or the building fund. FANCY FAIR AT BARRY.—This bazaar, or fancy f 'r. which is fc ly announced in another column, has for its object the getting up of funds for the erection of a chr ch at East Barry, and the Lord Bishop of L'andaff has k'ndl" pioniised to open the proceedings on Wednesday. \» e have no doubt, looking at the goodly array of its patronisers and the large number of willing workers at the various stalls and the more than usually attractive panoramas, galleries, &c., that the promoters will be enabled to secure such a sum as will enable them to proceed with their laudable object. The guide book which has been issued is neatly got up, and is creditable alike iO the printer and the committee. BAZAAR.—We are desired to state that, in conjunc- tion with the St. Paul's Church bazaar, to be held at Barry Market on October 28 and 29, Messrs.

It is needless to add that this great exnibition has been received with tremendous success wherever exhibited, and will, no doubt, prove a greatt attraction. THE ANNUAL SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY in connection with the Presbyterian Church, Barrv, were held on Sunday last, when the Rev. Daniel Thomas, Caerphilly, conducted the services through- out the day.

She is now lying on her beam ends, with her masts seawards, and her cargo of coal is being rapidly washed out of her.

SUDDEN DEATH OF A YOUNG GIRL.—At Cadox- ton on Monday, Mr. E. B. Reece, cr strict coroner, held an inquest touching the death of Alice Maud Morgan, aged sixteen years, daughter of the late Wm. Morgan, carpenter, Cadoxton.—Mrs. Evans, Old Post Office, Cadoxton Village, at whose house the girl died, said that the deceased had been at the Now House Orphanage Bristol, for fonr years, About. June last, witness had a letter from the institution stating that the girl was suffering from phthisis, and- that, in the opinion of the medical officer, a change would do her goop. 'Witness went, on June 13th, to Bristol, and ¡ brought her home, since when she had been with her. When taking her away, Dr. Salmon, the medical officer, said that all that could be done had been done, gave her some mrr1icine, tolc1 her to take cod liver oil, and told her. if any change ensued, to send for a doctor. The girl got on well until Wednesday morn- ing On that day she took breakfast in bed. After witness had breakfasted she went in to see her, when I deceased complained cf being cold and having a pain in the chest. Dr. O'Donnell was sent for, but she died as he got into the 1'o()m,-Dr, J, p, O'Donnel1 at- tributed death to phthisis in an advanced stage.—The jury (of which Mr. A. Found was foreman) returned a verdict of "Death from natural causes." The Coroner stated that the doctor had been willing t3 grant a certificate of the death, without an inquest being held, as it was evident what the deceaFed was suffering from but he (the coroner) had ordered the inquest to be held because it was such a long time since a doctor had attended her. The evidence of Mrs. Evans, however, fully and satisfactorily explained why a doctor had not been called in.

LATE HARVEST. — Some idea of what this wet autumn must mean to farmers, says a correspondent who was at Penmark, near Cowbrid^e, on Sunday. may be gathered from the fact that one Penmark farmer has 40 acres of barley and oats still out, some of which is growing into the ground. The correspon- dent inquired how it was that advantage was not taken of the fine week in September to get it all in, but the only reply was that the interval of fine weather was too brief to enable them to complete the harvest, and also the scarcity of labour was spoken of as a cause. ANNIVERSARY MEETINGS. — The anniversary meetings in connection with the Methodist Chapel took place on Thursday evening and Friday last, when eloquent and powerful sermons were delivered to crowded congregations. The officiating ministers were the Revs. Dr. Cynddylan Jones, Cardiff, and Thomas, Maesteg. The following ministers were also present, viz., the Revs. W. Daniels (the esteemed pastor), W. E.
