SENSATIONAL INCIDENT AT DINAS POWIS. A SUB-AGENT REFUSED ADMISSION TO THE POLLING BOOTH. EXTKAORDINARY PROCEED- INGS. We are informed that a most extraordinary scene occurred on Friday last at Dinas Powis in course of the polling. It seema that the name3 of two electors had been wrongly entered on the register of voters, and the presiding officer refused to allow the two electors to vote. Mr. Llewellyn Davies, the Liberal sub-agent, on being informed of this tried to enter the polling booth to explain matters to the presiding officer, but was at first refused admission by the police-constable stationed at the door. Mr. Davies, however, was not to be denied, and after sho wing to the constable his credentials was allowed to enter. Mr. Davies thereupon went up to the presiding officer and told him that the two men who had appeared were the men whose names were supposed to be entered on the register of voters. He further protested against their being disallowed to vote, and pointed out that the presiding officer had no right to refuse to allow them that the presiding officer was not supposed to identify the voters, and that all who voted did so at their own risk, if they personated another. The presiding officer, however, inter- rupted Mr. Davies, and said that he could* not hear him. Mr. Davies said that he had a perfect right to protest, and that he had submitted his papers to the presiding officer in the morning. This could not be denied, but the Presiding Officer declared that Mr. Davies' name was not down on the li°t of personating agents. "Certainly not," replied Mr. Davies, for I am the sub-agent for the division, and was sworn by General Lee some days ago." I cannot hear you your name is not on my list," replied the Presiding Officer, and, having called a policeman, Mr. Davies was forcibly ejected, pro- testing vigorously all the while. We have not ascertained if the two men in ques- tion were eventuallly allowed to vote, but we have reason to believe that they were not. Great dissatisfaction has, however, been caused by the incident, for though Mr. Davies- who had been duly sworn in by General Lee—was not allowed to be heard, another gentleman, who had not been so sworn, was allowed to enter un- challenged by the constable, and to speak to the presiding officer.

ORDIXATION SERVICES.—On Sunday and Monday last ordination services were held at Salem Baptist Chapel in connection with the settlement of the Rev. D C. Howell as pastor. The services on Sunday were at 10, 2, and 6. The Rev. Mr. Lewis, Merthyr, and the Rev. E. Roberts, D.D., Pontypridd, preached. On Monday at 2, the ordination service was held. The Rev. W. Edwards, D.D., Pontypool College, addressed the minister clect on the nature and importance of the Christian ministry. The Rev. D. C.

The concert concluded with a popular farce, entitled "Freezing a Mother-in-law TEA MEETING.—At Siloh Chapel a tea meeting was held on Monday, the proceedings commencing at three o'clock. Our friends at Siloh for several years have had a heavy burden of debt to carry, and the effort on Monday was towards reducing that load. LIBERALISM V. TORYISM.—The two great events of the week were the two political meetings-the Liberal meeting on Wednesday evening, and the Tory meeting on Friday evening, at which the rival candidates addressed the electors. Both meetings were largely attended, in fact the Town Hall was literally packed on each occasion, but the results of the meetings to the respective candidates were vastly different. The one was a huge and enthusiastic display of Liberalism, the other a weak and timid manifestation of Toryism. We should be glad, did space permit to give a detailed account of each meet- ing, and of the speeches delivered thereat, but as we cannot do that our readers will better apprehend the nature of both demonstrations by their contrasts in two or three particulars. In the first place though it was a wet night, Mr. S. T. Evans' supporters gathered in hundreds to accompany him and the band in proces- sion through the principal streets of the town prior to the meeting, while neither Mr. Grove, nor any of his supporters marched in procession, but left the band to go alone. That did not indicate anything very robust in Maesteg Toryism. At the Liberal meeting the hall was profusely decorated with bunting, and the platform adorned with flowers, and mottoes plentifully hung about the walls, such as The Newcastle Programme," Success to Gladstone and Home Rule," "Welcome to our Future Member, Mr. S. T. Evans, of whom Maesteg is proud," "Cymru Fydd," "Trech Gwlad nae Ar- glwydd," but not a single flag, nor flower, nor motto greeted the eye of the Tory candidate. There were two or three faint attempts to display a bit of blue in the streets, but they were feeble expressions, and not by any means calculated to inspire the candidate. Then the platform of Mr. S. T. Evans was filled with local supporters, who were not ashamed nor afraid to appear in support of the man of their choice, while Mr. Grover was allowed to appear on the platform, and face a whole forest of Radicals with no local support but that of his chairman and the chairman's son. A vote of confidence in Mr. S. T. Evans was proposed and se- conded, and carried with deafening cheers and prolonged acclammation, but no vote of confidence was attempted at the meeting of Mr. F. C. Grover, and the supporters of the Liberal candidate proposed and carried a vote of confidence in their man at the Tory meeting, thus bringing the Tory attack on Maesteg to a close. But the greatest, and most expressive, and final contrast was at the poll on Tuesday, which resulted in the follow- ¡ ing figures being attached to each name :—Mr. Samuel Thomas Evans (L.), 5,941, Mr. Florence Crandfurd Grover (C.), 1,735; majority, 4,206. PORTHCAWL. LIBERAL MEETING.—A meeting in support of the candidature of Mr. A. J. Williams was held in the Assembly Room, Porthcawl, on the eve of the election. There was a large attendance and a capital meeting. Mr. T. James occupied the chair, and was supported on the platform by several well-known local Liberals. The chairman made a capital opening speech, and in conclusion called upon the Rev. David Evans to move a vote of confidence in Mr. Gladstone, with a hope that he would be returned to power. This was ably secon- ded by Mr. Burgess, of Aberavon (now of Trevecea College. On being put to the meeting the resolution was carried by a large majority. The second resolution was one of confidence in Mr. A. J. Williams, the late member, and asking the meeting to pledge itself to do all in its power to secure his return to the new Parliament. Mr. Arthur Lewis moved this in a hearty speech, and Councillor Evan Evans seconded. Rev. Mr. George, of Neath, supported in the speech of the evening. He dealt in a most trenchant manner with many of the leading political topics of the day, and his remarks were received with the greatest enthusiasm. At the close of the meeting a good quantity of election literature was distributed. REGISTER REGISTER! All Liberal owners of property should at once examine the register on church and chapel doors, and, if omitted, should communicate instantly with the local secretary, or Mr. A. Cole, New- castle, Bridgend. N.B.—Wednesday next (July 20) is the last day for owners' claims. NOTTAGE. GENERAL BAPTIST (UNITARIAN) CHAPEL.— The Rev. George St. Clair, of Cardiff, conducted the services at the above place of worship on Sunday last. In the morning an able discourse was delivered from the words, They have received their reward." In the evening the preacher based his remarks upon "The Psalm of Life." Both discourses were very inspiring, and much appreciated by good congregations. The visit of the rev. gentleman was in connection with the quarterly exchanges of the Churches connected with the South Wales English Unitarian Society. LLANTWIT-MAJOR. SCHOOL AND BAND OF HOPE PICNIC.—On Wednesday in last week the teachers and scholars of Bethesda and Fro Schools, together with the members of the Band of Hope, had their annual picnic, the place chosen being Southerndown. The party, to the num- ber of upwards of 80, left Boverton in four breaks, and the morning, although threatening, held out fine. Arriving at Southerndown, the party were regaled with plenty of good things, and enjoyed themselves on the sands, and arrived home in good time, well satisfied with a good day's outing. FIRE.-On Monday evening a straw-thatched cottage situate in Colhugh-street, in the occupation of a labouring man, named John Escott, was discovered to be on fire. A large number of willing hands at once began to rescue the poor man's furniture, and others tried to extinguish the fire the efforts to save the furniture were fairly successful, nearly everything being saved, but the thatch being so dry, the premises were completely destroyed, while the poor man's garden was greatly damaged by the efforts made to put out the fire. VISITORS.—A large number of visitors are now at Llantwit, while several hundreds of excursionists visit the town every week. DAY SCHOOL.-On Friday last the prizes to the successful students were distributed in the Town-hall. There was a large number present. Mr. Gibbon (Dorset) adjudicated, and complimented the students on their progress during the course, nearly the whole of the students being very young. The awards were as follows :-Miss 1, Louisa Richards, St. Dona.tts, JE3; 2, Miss Kate John, Ham Farm, £ 1; 3, Miss Mary Hopkins, East-street, £ 1 10s.; 4, Miss Preece, Woodford, 15s.; 5, A. M. Davies, Dunlands, 10s.; highly commended, Miss J. Thomas, Fleming- stone, and Miss Edwards, Aberthaw. Mrs. Nickoll presented the prizes. There was very little interest taken by the public during the course, and when we consider the purely agricultural position of the neigh- bourhood, we are surprised at the small number that visited the school during the course. PENCOED. REGISTER! REGISTER! All Liberal owners of property should at once examine the register on church and chapel doors, and, if omitted, should communicate instantly with the local secretary, or Mr. H. Cole, Newcastle, Bridgend. N.B.—Wednesday next (July 20) is the last day for owners' claims. LALESTON. INQUEST.—An inquiry was held on Monday before Mr. Cuthbertson, coroner, at the New Inn, Laleston, touching the death of the infant daughter (Maud) of Jenkin Roberts, labourer, Laleston. Evidence having been given to the effect that the deceased was only three days old, and had been born prematurely, the jury without hesitation returned a verdict of" Death from natural causes." SOUTHENRDOWN. OUTISG.-The employers of the Great Western Hotel, Cardiff, were driven down here on last Sunday in two four horse brakes. The party numbering nearly forty-seven, enjoyed the drive immensely, as the weather was favourable. On their arrival they had lunch served out in a small tent on the Downs. The return journey was made about 7.30. after enjoying a most pleasant outing at the seashore.
