PORTHCAWL. FOOTBALL.—A very good football match was played at Porthcawl on Saturday afternoon last, the rival teams being the Neath Harlequins and the Porthcawl College Club. It was quite an amusing spectacle when both teams stepped on to the field as they were very unevenly matched as regards size— though not as regards the science of the game. The Harlequins looked like Herculean giants compared with the College boys, some of whom reminded one uf the inhabitants of fabled ancient Lilliput. Amusing it was to see the way in which the youngsters set about their opponents, and by sheer smartness and cleverness, succeeded ill gaining a well earned victory. We are not able to record the soore, but know that the Collegians won by several points. For them Matthews, a young boy who played at half-back, was quite ubiquitous; Ainsworth, one of the assistant masters at the College, W. S. Vivian, and E. John, grown up persons who helped" the boys;' all played a sterling game. Some of the Harlequins, whose names we do not know, played a very good game also. Un- doubtedly there is splendid stud: among the College boys, and with good training they will develope into an excellent team. RENT AUDIT.—Lord Wimborne's rent audit for thp Newton Nottage tenants was held at the Ancient Briton Inn, Newton, on Wednesday, December 16th. Mr. Paterson, the chief agent, attended also Messrs, Mabey, Heneage, and Crossland. An excellent dinner was provided by the landlady, Miss Bevan, to which ample justice was done by those present. At the dose, of the dinner a long toast list was gone through, several of which were drunk with musical honours. The toast of the chief agent, Mr. Paterson, was re- ceived with much enthusiasm, as. was also that of Mr. Mabey, of whom Mr. Paterson spoke in terms of high eulogium. An excellent feeling exists between Lord Wimborne and his Newton-Nottage tenants, as was manifested by the unbounded enthusiasm that ob- tained after the drinking of the toast of his name. Several good speeches were delivered, and Mr. Paterson gave a song which created much laughter. Amongst those present we noticed Rev. W. J. Jones (rector), Messrs. Lane, J. Howells, W. J. Phillips, W. Bevan, and Leyshon Harding.
