ENGLISH WESLEYANISM. — At the Holton-road Wesleyan Chapel on Wednesday, a service of song, entitled The River Singers," was kindly and ably Tendered by the Barry Wesleyan Choir.

The connective readings were given by Mr. J. Moon in his usual masterly style the chair being taken by our ever faithful friend Mr. J. Lowdon. CADOXTON.

A visit was paid to *Tynewydd, where the members of the party were hospitably received by Mr. and Mrs. J. Jewel Williams. After an inspection of the docks, the whole of the members sat down to a splendid repast, gratuitously supplied by Mr. Williams, who was in the chair, and was supported by Mr. D. T. Alexander, Dr. O'Donnell, Mr. J. J. Williams, and others. Mr. J. Edwards and Mr. Daniel Thomas occupied the vice-chair.

Needhurst, of Hope Chapel, Cardiff, who preached two most eloquent sermons. Next Sunday the pastor, Rev. L. Ton Bvans, will officiate. A DISGRACEFUL SCENE was witnessed last Sun- day evening on the Moors-road. Two men were fight- ing, one a well-known character, who keeps a boarding- house in Vere-street, the other a sailor. 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.

CHURCH CHOIR PICNIC. —On Wednesday, in delightful weather, the choirs of St. Augustine's and All Saints' Churches, with other friends, numbering together about 70, were entertained by the rector and churchwardens to a picnic at Porthkerry. Access to the park was allowed by the kind permission of Mr. John Cory. The party were driven in breaks sup- plied by Messrs. Andrews and Son, a sumptuous luncheon being served by Mr. E. 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.
NOTES FROM OGMORE VALLEY.
NOTES FROM OGMORE VALLEY. [BY PLATO.] — A DISGRACE.—It is not a very desirable scene to witness two of the feminine sex—well-known for good behaviour "-boxing with an unarmed man. This was the case recently in a certain street at Xantymoel. A ROMANCE.—For the past few weeks or months a suspicion has arisen in a certain house that the landlady, a widow of 63 summers, had fallen deeply in love with the lodger, a man of thirty-five years, and on Tuesday last the drama was seen at its best. Nantymoel had reached its climax. Hun- dreds of spectators gathered together to witness an unparalleled scene in the history of the Valley. It transpired that the lodger had been told, or rather ordered to seek for fresh fields and pastures new. Being unwilling to part with his intended, he was followed by his loving widow's sons (who, by the way, are older than the unfortunate lodger), and the would-be landlord had to seek refuge at the rail- way station office for hours, not by any means an uncomfortable" cell" considering that the land- lady demanded admittance in order to console her rejected lover. In the course of time the long- expected sergeant arrived upon the scene and escorted qhe "young" damsel to her home amid great cheering and hooting; and although a separation has been demanded, I understand, on good authority, that it is only temporary. When the happy event comes off the collieries are to be idle and a great demonstration is to be formed. 0 bob rhyfeddod fu erio'd Rhyfeddod mwy lla'r llu sy'n d'od Hurrah i'r dydd pan elo'r ferch Yn Mrs. wrth allor serch. WAR.—At present there is considerable excite- ment in the Valley caused by owners refusing to pay for pavement erected in front of their houses. As it is used by the public at large, I think it should be paid by the ratepayers. There is some- thing, surely, behind the scene here, and I may have a space next week in your interesting paper to write further on this subject.
WHY don't you trade with me," said a close-fisted manufacturer to a customer the'other day. "Because," was the characteristic reply, Yon have never asked me, sir. I have looked all through the newspapers for an invitation in the shape of an advertisement, but in vain. I never go where I am not wanted."

Behind Warren's back was a half-gallon measure full of beer. In another jug* was some slops of beer. That was in the back kitchen. In the middle room there was a jug with beer in it.

He followed him upstairs and told him that if he did not leave his house he would get a policeman to eject him. Defendant caught him by the throat, pushed him downstairs, struck him with his fist and gave him a black eye. He went for a policeman and saw Police-constable Roberts, to whom he complained. He did not know Froggett, but on describing him to Henry Jones, Jones recognised him by his descrip- tion. Mr. Jackson for the defence contended that the complainant was mistaken in his man, and called Mrs. Symes, of John-street, with whom Froggett lived, who said that on the night in ques- tion she was at the Wenvoe, with her husband and son and Froggett. They had left together at quar- ter to 11, and walked home together, and went to bed before 12, and during that time Froggett was in her presence the whole time.—The Bench fined de- fendant 40s. and 15s. costs, or 21 days' imprison- ment.

In the middle room they found a nine-gallon cask full of beer, and in the pantry they found a nine gallon cask nearly empty. On the window in the pantry was a jug with slops of beer in it, and the floor was wet. Police-constable Phillips asked how he accounted for so many people visiting the house that morning. He replied that no one had been there, and they could not prove it. He told him he should report him for selling beer without a licence. Defendant replied I haven't sold any beer, nor have you seen any money passed. That cask in the kitchen was left here by the brewer Mr. Clarke, of Cardiff, last night, and he will fetch it away to-morrow. I do not want it. The cask had been in the pantry for three weeks." Police-constable Wm. Phillips corroborated. Mr. Carter, of Bristol, who appeared for the defence contended that no case had been proved against his client. The ehairman held otherwise, and some very warm passages occurred between the Bench. Mr. Carter called for the defence the defendant who was subjected to a sharp cross-examination by Mr. Jackson, the prosecuting solicitor; Elizabeth Sidwell (wife of the defendant). Lucy Jackson (niece of William Sidwell), and Albert Morgan. Mr. Carter, in speaking on the case, said no perjury had been committed by either the police or the defendants.

They went again in the same direction, but returned without any more timber. He asked the female prisoner what she had done with the boards ? She said, What boards ? He followed her into the house, and in the passnge downstairs saw the boards (pro- duced). He asked her where she had got them from, and she said from the back of an empty house in Travis-street. She said she thought that there was no harm in taking them. The male prisoner, who is a Frenchman, and had to have the evidence interpreted to him, said nothing. The further hearing of the case was adjourned for a fortnight, to secure the presence of Mr. Macguive the owner of the wood, and the prisoners were admitted to bail.
