NOTES AND NEWS FROM PONTYCYMMER. The weather has been very wet and stormy of late. Old Neptune has plied his waterpot so vigor- ously that last Monday the river Garw almost overflowed its banks. Two little boys were cross- ing the river on a plank, when one fell into the water and was carried away by the flood. Fortu- nately, he was rescued by some men belonging to the Great Western Railway. Well done! The thanks of the neighbourhood are due to-you for your noble eliorts. Opthalmos writes to say that he finds no fault with the Board as a whole, nor can anyone say a word against the worthy chairman. "Ratepayer" doc-s not enlighten anyone's darkness by saying he is a gentleman in every sense of the word. We all know that, and there is nob a more generous, noble-hearted gentleman in Glamorganshire. Look at what he did for all the chapels on his es- tate he gave them all the freeholds; besides many other kind deeds he has done. Then as to the surveyor, we have nothing against him per- sonally as a man but about him being the right man in the right place, because Ratepayer" says so, that does not prove the case true nor fecause Ratepayer" and the two that he has vented his mind to say it. We say nothing about the surveyor or his work, or if he had a dnzcn assistants if needed. But we do protest against assistants being paid by the ratepayers if the surveyor has time to work for private individuals, either as a matter of kind- ness or for pay. He is paid by the Board for his time then let him devote his time to the Board. Why did notRatepayer give a good example by putting his name to his epistle 0 fie. Mr. Rate- payer," you are preaching what you can't practice. At the next election, Ophthalmos, and Lousin, and Black Prince, and Baby Bingo are going to stand, and hope that "Ratepayer "and his friends will plump for them, as they are not common men, but office-seekers. LOUSIN.
