Several rounds had been fought in a yard, but not having enough room there, they proceeded to the Moors-road, where a large crowd soon gathered, and five or six more rounds were fought. One man's face was covered with blood, and the other had but a few scratches. They still kept on encouraged by the sailors who formed themselves into a ring, and no one had the courage to stop them, when a woman, named Mrs. Mooney, bravely came up and separated them. They still struggled to get at each other, but were held back by the seconds. During all this time not a policeman was seen, the fight having lasted for about half an hour.

Bishop, of Penarth, on arriving at Porthkerry shortly after mid-day. At six o'clock tea was also served, and the return journey was commenced at eight o'cleck. FIRE.-Between four and five o'clock on Monday afternoon the engine shed of the Penarth Steam Joinery Works, in Railway-terrace, belonging to Mr. D. G. Price, builder and contractor, took fire. The engine was working with full steam pressure at the time, and so quickly did the flames spread that it was some time before the steam could be shut off. This was rendered the more difficult as the governing strap was quickly burnt, and an explosion was feared. One of Mr. Price's men, however, by means of a pole, managed to pull the lever back. The alarm mean- while had been given, and the Police Fire Brigade, under Inspector King, quickly arrived, but it was some considerable time before they could properly fit the hydrant. The employes of Mr. Price were not idle, and a hose was soon playing on the flames, which were got under in about an hour and a half's time. The shed was completely burnt, and the damage done to the engine is estimated at f200. RECEIVING ORDER.—A receiving order has been made on the estate of Morgan Rees Williams, East- cliffe, Penarth, bank manager. PENMARK. PRESENTION TO REV. W. DANIELS.-On Thurs- day evening, the 21st inst., the Rev. W. Daniels, Cal- vinistic minister of the above place was the subject of a very neat and handsome presentation, in the form of a writing desk, on the occasion of his leaving the above church to take charge of the newly-formed Methodist Church at Barry Dock This beautiful present was given by his friends and well-wishers as a token of their esteem and much appreciation of his faithful and successful ministry amongst them. We understand that he has laboured for five years in this church, during which period he has made a name and reputa- tion which is well worth to be envied, and established himself as a good and intelligent preacher, a genial and faithful pastor, and also as a true, thorough, uncompro- mising and sterling character. Not only the Church but also the neighbourhood at large will suffer a great loss in the removal of Mr. Daniels, though in this case, as in many others, what is a loss to the one is a great gain to the other. Barry Dook should be (and we know they are) very proud of their choice. We wish the Church and pastor every success,. trusting that their labours will be abundantly blessed for the great end towards which he Has called them. WENVOE. DEATH OF MKS. MORRIS, THE TARRWS.—On Sunday, July 17th, Mrs. Morris passed away after a long illness. She was the wife of Mr. Morris, butcher. In her death Wenvoe has lost one of its oldest in- habitants. She came to the parish when very young, and spent the whole of her long life in the place. On this account she was well known in the neighbour- hood. She possessed many excellent qualities, and was well beloved and respected by all. Her generosity was proverbial. Her religion was characterised by sincerity. She believed and acted on the principle that godliness was profitable for the life that now is and also for the life to come." The family has had a great loss; she was the virtuous woman" that is described in the last chapter of Proverbs. A good wife and a tender and loving mother has gone to the grave. The Methodist cause at Wenvoe has lost a generous supporter, and the ministers and students a true friend, as Mrs. Morris was given to hospitality. Her whole life was characterised by honesty and up- rightness. She was one that made the best of both worlds. Whatever her hand found to do she did it with all her might. The text of the sermon was very appropriate, "She did what she could." She had reached the age of 75, thus her reminiscences of the neighbourhood were very interesting. The family at the Castle she could remember for three generations, even as far back as the grandfather of the late Captain Jenner. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place on the following Thursday. A short service was held at the residence of deceased, when the Rev. W. Williams, Cadoxton, officiated. The place of inter- ment was the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, Wenvoe. At the chapel the Rev. W. Mr. Tibbott, Cadoxton, introduced the service. The sermon was preached by the Rev. W.Jones, Morriston, an old and valued friend of the family. The text was Mark xiv., 8, and a very eloquent and pathetic sermon was delivered. At the grave the Rev. D. M. Thomas, pastor, officiated. May the Lord be a refuge and strength to the family in their day of trouble.-Com.
