POSTMEN'S PICNIC. The Cardiff Postmen held a first annual picnic on Bank Holiday at Coldnap, Barry. Luncheon had been ordered at the Ship Hotel, and at one o'clock about 130, with the P.O. Band at the head playing a rollicking air, marched from Barry Station to the Hotel, and partook of a delightful spread, the Menu of which included chicken, lamb, ham, with potatoes and salad and the wines champagne, port, sherry, &c. The merchants and tradespeople of Cardiff contributed very liberally towards the picnic, and had their been time no doubt more gentlemen would have contributed. Among the subscribers are Messrs. Spiridon and Son, Duke-street, Handsome Flower Basket. Barry and Co. Fitzroy Barometer. £ s. d. „ Cory Brothers (Limited) 2 2 0 „ D.

Brain, Mr. Stainforth (Church- street), Mr. Pedler (Royal Arcade), the Postmaster, Mr. Bazeley and Mr. W. T. Jones (superintendents), Mr. Mattock and Mr. J. B. Loyns ( assistant superin- tendents), and Inspector Charley. The following ladies and gentlemen were of the party ;—Mr. G. Fardo (postmaster), Master and Miss Fardo, Inspector Charley, Messrs. W. T. JonEs (postal superintendent). T. Bazeley (telegraph superintendent). C. Mattock (assistant superin- tendent). J. Evans (assistant superintendent), and Mrs. J. Evans, Mr. A. Underwood (assistant superintendent, Mr. Arnold (postmaster, Barry Dock), and Mr. Sansome (bandmaster). Before leaving the table Mr. Fardo said he had decided not to have any speechyfying to interfere with the men's pleasure, but he was obliged to depart from that decision because he could not refrain from saying that there were then present such a class of men as he had never had to deal with before. A steadfast, smart, intelligent, and reliable body, he meant the postmen of Cardiff. (Loud applause.) Since he had come to Cardiff, and that was only three years, he had done is utmost to ameliorate their condition-(hear. hear) -to get them better pay. (Hear, hear). He said he had no sooner expressed a wish to meet the postmen at some such entertainment as this than than Inspector Charley (loud and prolonged cheering)— had put his practical and intelligent mind to it, and the thing was arranged. He should like next year to combine the whole de- partment. and have the telegraphists and postmen at one great picnic. (Hear, hear.) He closed by saying how pleased he was with the efficiency of the band, and thought great credit was due to Mr. Sansome, the leader. (Applause.) He was obliged to the merchants and tradesmen of Cardiff for the Liberal way they had contributed towards the picnic, and the surplus would be held over for the next year's. He then said he would propose a toast which would meet with the approval of all, 14 The Queen." The toast was drunk with great gusto, amid loud cheering. The party afterwards strolled down to Coldnap, and amused themselves with sports, bathing, and games, as each one's in- clination might lead. The races that had been arranged beforehand were (1). 120 yards foot- race for bandsmen only 1st, A. J. Godfrey 2nd, H. How 3rd. H. Howard.

At half past five they returned to the Ship to tea, and afterwards the b ind played dance music for those who wished to dance, the pleasure being now enhanced by the presence of several ladies who joined in the dancing, and all b.-came, if possible, more merry than before. The party returned at 9.10, with a sigh for their less fortunate brethren who were compelled to remain at home on duty. All enjoyed themselves thoroughly, and the bandsmen on the return journey endeavoured tel keep up the pleasure to the last.

ODDFELLOWS' JUBILEE AT PONTYPRIDD. IMPOSING DEMONSTRATION. BANQUET AT THE MARKET- HALL. The Pontypridd District of Oddfellows (Man- chester Unity), established in 1842, on Monday celebrated its jubilee with considerable eclat. The district embraces no fewer than 17 lodges, and the members, numbering altogether from 90U to 1,000. turned out m ma sue to celebrate this interest- ing epoch in the history of the Order. The demonstrationists were favoured with delightful weather, and were honoured with the presence of the Grand Master of the Order, Mr. Henry Flowers, of Norwich, to whom a most cordial reception was accorded along the entire route. The day's proceedings commenced at one o'clock in the afternoon, when the members of the Lord Adare. Ely Valley, and Pride of Glamorgan Lodges left the Butchers' Arms, Penygraig, for Dinas Station, y where they were joined by the Rhys-Williams Lodge. Headed by the Tonypandy Brass Band, the procession marched on to Porth, being joined at the Ty'nyeymmer Arms by the William Morgan Lodge. Porth was reached at two o'clock, and here the members of the Order from the Rhondda Fach Valley were found in waiting. They comprised the members of the Brynawel Lodge of Ynyshir and the Rhys-ap-Tewdwr Lodge. At the bottom of the Cymmer hill another detach- ment fell in. headed by the Cymmer Brass Band. This detachment included the Twyn Teg Lodge members and the Seren Morganwg Lod ge members. After a slight delay for marshalling purposes, the procession, which had now assumed gigantic proportions, marched over a distance of four miles to Pontypridd. The heat was well- nigh overpowering, and the processionists at times were almost completely hidden in the clouds of dust that arose in course of the journey. The weariness of the march, however, was consider- ably relieved by the merry music of the joint bands, and, though tired as they must have been, the processionists appeared to thoroughly enjoy the novel march. While this was in pro- gress the various lodges of the Pontypridd district had assembled in the Mill-street School play- grounds, accompanied by the Pontypridd Brass Band. The Rhondda section reached the schools a few minutes before four o'clock, and after a few moments of well-deserved rest, the processionists again fell in. and, marshalled by Provincial Cor- responding Secretary R T. Richards (of Porth) and the district officers, entered the town and perambulated the principal thoroughfares in the following order :—Band. open carriage containing the Grand Master (Mr. Henry Flowers) and the Past Grand Masters of the Pontypridd District, Messrs. Dd. Rowlands. Daniel Williams, Aaron Cule. and W. Seaton. Mr. George Evans, Tyvica- crescent. also rode in the carriage. Following came the lodges in the order given below, the three bands occupying suitable positions at in- tervals -1st, Triumphant Lodge; 2nd, Good Intent; 3rd. Fraternity 4th, Lord Adare 5th. Ann Powell (ith, Rhys-ap-Tewdwr; 7th, Twyn Teg: 8th, Ely Valley 9th, William Morgan; 10th, Rhys Williams: 11th, Scren Morganwg; 12th, Brynawel 13th, Fairfield 14th, Merlin 15th, Lily of Glyntaff; 16th, Jabez Evans 17th. Pride of Glamorgan. Shortly after five o'clock the procession, which attracted along the route many thousands of spectators, returned to the assembly room of the Butchers' Arms Hotel, where the following honorary members were initiated into the mysteries of the Order, amid considerable enthu- siasm—-Messrs. Lloyd, Porth; Preece, Porth J. F. McClune, Pontypridd W. Jones-Powell, Pontypridd R. M. Evans, Pontypridd :— Coles. Porth Alderman W. H. Morgan, Ponty- pridd Botterill, Treharris Rev. Llewelyn Lloyd Davies, vicar of Llanwonno Mr. Morgan Rees, Glamorgan Hotel Mr. George Evans, Brewery. Pontypridd and Mr. W. Seaton, Pontypridd. It is interesting to note that the district is in a most flourishing condition, both financially and numerically. According to the figures given in the course of an interesting ad- dress at the banquet by the P.C.S. R. J. Richards, the value of the lodge sick and funeral funds stands at £8,J.85 16s. 6d., and the manage- ment fund at £ 90 6s. 3d., while a sum of £88 Is. Id. stands to the credit of the Juvenile fund. The value of the district funeral fund is £ 71 12s. The demonstration was a most imposing- one, and the credit for its unique success is undoubtedly due to the energy of the district officers, Messrs. Thos. Charles. Prov. G.M., Medad 'Lewis. D. Prov. G.M., and R. J. Richards, Prov. C.S. THE BANQUET. In the evening the brethren assembled a thousand strong around the festive board at the Market- hall, Pontypridd, where a magnificent spread had been provided by Mr. and Mrs. Evans, of the County Hotel. The hall had undergone elaborate decoration, conspicuous places being assigned to the gorgeous banners and regalias of the Order. Mr. R. Williams, of the Tredegar Hotel, catered the wines. His Honour Judge Gwilym Williams presided, and supporting him were Grand Master Flowers, Mr. Aaron Cule. P.P.P.G.M.; Mr. D. Rowlands. P.P.G.M. Mr. William Hutchings, P.G.M.; Mr. T. Charles, Williamstown Deputy P.G.M., Mr. Medad Lewis. Penygraig P.P.G.M., Mr. W. Seaton P.P.G.M., Mr. J. H. Davies; P.P.G.M., Mr. George Williams Provincial Corresponding Secretaries, Mr. D. Miles, Aberdare District, and Mr. R. T. Richards Mr. Grover, the Rev. Dr. Roberts, the Rev. H. J. Williams, B.A. (vicar). Mr. William Jones (A.O.F.), Mr. David Leyshon, Mr. L. Gordon Lenox, J.P. Mr. Thomas Forrest, Mr. W. H. Davies, Mr. A. A. McLucas, Mr. O. Morgan, and all the honorary members who had justlbeen initiatied. Letters of apology were received from Mr. Alfred Thomas, M.P., Mr. Arthur J. Williams, M.P.. Mr. H. Abraham, Hafod, and Councillor H. Smith Davies. The cloth having been removed, the usual loyal toasts were proposed from the chair and duly honoured. — Mr. J. F. McClune proposed the military toast, to which Major Grover responded —Bro. D. Rowlands. P.P.G.M., gave the clerical toast, and the Rev. H. J. Williams, B.A., the vicar, and the Rev. Dr. Roberts spoke in response. Bro. A. Cule. P.G.. in an appropriate speech, then presented the Grand Master with an ad- dress of congratulation, couched in the following terms To Henry Flowers, Esq., Grand Master, 1892-93, of the Independent Order of Oddfellows, Manchester Unity, Friendly Society. The officers and members of the Pontypridd district, numbering about 13,000, beg to tender you a most cordial greeting, and heartily welcome you on the occasion of this your first visit to the Principality in your capacity as Grand Master of the Manchester Unity. We also desire to express our deep sense of the honour which you have conferred upon us in having so kindly accepted our humble invitation to be present at the jubilee celebration of the establishment of our district. We, therefore, feel deeply indebted to you for granting us the honour of a visit, this being the first occasion upon which we have been so favoured by a Chief Officer of our Order. The district of which we are members is by no means a large one, though formed as far back as 1842, when it consisted of three Lodges only the Triumphant, Good Intent, and Fraternity Lodges.- which still remaillloyal to the Unity, and to the true principles of our great Order. The tlistrict at present consists of 17 lodges, and it is contemplated to further extend the good work of the Order by opening eight more new lodges within the radius of the district. The first district meeting was held on the 13th of June, 1842, at the Butcher's Arms Hotel, in this town, and at which house the 120th district meeting was held on the 27th day of June, 1892. The great majority of the members of our district are engaged in coal mining but we also have a very large number of members who are occupied in lighter and less hazardous occupations. Notwithstanding the extremely dangerous occupa- tion ot coal mining, it affords us very much pleasure and consolatiollJn informing you that our district has not for some years passed been visited by one of those terrible explosions which have so often occurred in colliery districts. We are also pleased to observe that the sicknes6 ex- perience of our members is but very little above the average sickness experience of more favourably situa- ted and healthier districts of the Unity. We trust that the great advance made by the Derby A.M.C. with regard to superannuation will be taken advantage of by the members of our Order in large numbers, thus securing for themselves the benefits of old-age pensions which can be safely provided by our great Society. In conclusion, we beg to present to you this album as a memento of your visit to our district, and we feel sure that your presence amongst us will urge us on to greater efforts in spreading the principles and advan- tages offered by our: U ni ty. Ardently hoping that your life will long be spared to serve the Order for which you have done such magnificent work in the past, We beg to remain, yours fraternallv, THOMAS CHARLES. Prov. G M. MEDAD LEWIS, Prov. D.G.M. MATTHEW LANK, Prov. D.T. AARON CULE, P.G. RICHARD JOHN RICHARDS, Prov. C.S. Pontypridd, August 1st, 1892. The album, which was beautifully got up, was executed by Mrs. Evan John, Llantrisant, and contained a series of excellent photographs of local beauty, spots and places of interest from the studio of Mr. Thomas Forrest. The toast of "The Manchester Unity of Odd- fellows and the Grand Master" was submitte f by Mr. W. Jones-Powell, and honoured with enthusiasm. .111'. Henry Flowers, of Norwich, the Grand Mazier of the Order, speaking in response, re turned thanks for the flattering address of which he had been made the recipient at their hands. He regarded it not as an honour to him so much as a tribute of respect to the Grand Order of which he was that night a humble representa- tive. He was proud to say that he had been a. member of the Unity for 40 years, and it was interesting to compare the condition of the Order now with what it was at that period. In 1852 they had 453 districts, 3.219 lodges, and 225,194 members whereas in 1891 they had attained 462 districts, 4,515 lodges, and 673.073 members, being an increase of 9 districts. 1.296 lodges, and 447,879 members. During the 40 years as many as 212.908 members and 127,160 wives had died. and relief in respect of them had been paid by the Unity to the extent of three million sterling. Since January 1st, 1891, 50,900 new members had been enrolled. while the deaths and secessions amounted to 28,286. leaving their present membership at 695,687, an increase over 1891 of 22,614. Their net gain for the yast two years had been 43,797, and he appealed to the brethren of the Pontypridd district to assist him to better this record during his year of office. (Cheers.) Their receipts during 1891 from all sources had been :£1.301.314 7s. Id., and the total payments £ 1.086.810 13s. 9d., showing a favourable balance of ,C!ï4,503 13s. 4d. (Loud cheers.) He expressed satisfaction at the magnifi- cent demonstration he had witnessed that day. and spoke of his delight at seeing all along the route the enormous material they had around them to make Oddfellows of. (Laughter and cheers.) He had seen with pride the splendid homes provided for the working classes in that district, and the beautiful structures they had erected for religious worship. Proceeding, the Grand Master spoke of the value of friendly societies, and impressed upon the members of the Ponty- pridd district the paramount importance of establishing juvenile branches and women's societies in connection with the Unity.

The conductor of the juvenile choir that won the prize for rendering Brightly gleams our banner." was presented with a handsome baton. Sir Charles Dilke, at an interval in the compe- titions, addressed the audience. He Temarked that when he was asked to preside over that meet- ing he had been told that those ceremonies were intended to do something for the preservation and cultivation of the Welsh tongue and Welsh music. He did not know anythingabout the Welsh tongue, but he could say something in regard to the Welsh national spirit, for there was no man in the United Kingdom who was a greater admirer of that spirit than he. (Applause.) He was one of those who had never ceased to say that the national spirit of Wales seemed more unanimous and more genuine than the national spirit of almost any other people on the face of the earth and he had hailed with the greatest pleasure the successive rise in strength of the wave of national feeling in Wales, which had progressed more rapidly in our time than that of any other national spirit in the world. (Applause.) It would be out of place to attempt to indulge in any suggestions as to what particular forms the development of that national spirit in local institutions should take in the future. They were not there to talk of that and he would only say how passionate an ad- mirer he was of that spirit, and how very wise it would be for the people of the United Kingdom to recognise it by legislation, and give it that free play which would give strength to the country to which they belonged. (Applause.) With regard to the national-music of Wales he also laid claim to be an admirer, and he could praise it and the musical faculty of the Welsh people as unreservedly as he could their patriotism. Half of the concert singers in London were Welsh. (Applause.) The natural proportion which Wales ought to contribute to the music of the country, taking the United Kingdom as a whole (and it must be remembered that the Scotch and Irish were musical people and that some of the English were musical) would be very much less than half, but it would be found that the Welsh names amongst the best concert singers of London numbered half, if not more. That fact showed that the Welsh, of all people in the United Kingdom, were the most musical and most successful in the practice of music. (Ap- plause.) It had been said there were no tenors now worthy the name; but those who had heard the performances there that day would agree with him that two of the young men who sang possessed as fine natural voices as any he or they had ever listened to. (Applause.) The character of the Welsh music had always been a thing which ap- pealed to him even more than the admirable executive power of the Welsh performers. In Wales there was an ancient musical tradition. In England they could trace baek songs to the 15th century, but Wales possessed tunes which date back to a primeval antiquity. And they had some- thing more in Wales, for her modern composers, such as Dr. i irr; !\ad caught the rhythm and spirit of the nt-iq melodies. (Applause.) He had often tic. "rht that in their ancient hymn music he eo.ee » very close resemblance to the Gregorian music which had come through the Eastern Church and the Church of England, from the East to Western Europe. It had given hiiii the greatest pleasure to be there that day to hear performances of such excellence. (Applause.) Votes of thanks to Sir Charles Dilke and the officials concluded the proceedings. In the evening a public concert was held in the same place, amongst the singers being Miss Maggie Purvis, of London.
EXTRAORDINARY CASE AT BRIDGEND. HUSBAND AND WIFE. At the Bridgend petty sessions on Saturday (Mr. R. W. Llewellyn presiding) John Morgan, in the employ of the Tatf Vale Railway, at Cardiff, was summoned for deserting his wife Mary Morgan, Bridgend.—Mr. T. J. Hughes appeared for complainant, and Mr. R. Scale (Scale and David) for the defendant.—Mr. Hughes said that he would prove that the defendant deserted his wife without any cause, and he would then ask the magistrates to deal with the case. Defendant was employed as a rural postman and insurance agent. He had a reason for leaving Bridgend as he was not straight in his insurance accounts be- longing to the Prudential Insurance Company. After he left in September last the furniture had to be sold to pay his debts, and the wife had had to go and live with her father. The parties had lived together on the Cefn Glas-road.—Mary Morgan, now living at 147 Bridgend-road, Aberkenfig said she was married to defendant in February. 1891. They had no children. She had not seen her husband since 16th of September of last year. On that night she saw him at eight o'clock. She went to bed at 10.15, and he had not then returned home. She never saw or heard him later on that night. When he left home at eight o'clock he never said that he was going away for good. She thought he had gone to sleep at his cousin's house. He was an agent for the Prudential Insurance Company, and had been in the habit of sleeping away from home at Cefn- carvan when on his round. Subsequently their furniture—part of which belonged to her before marriage—wras sold. She had not given him any cause to leave her. For the last month or six weeks before he went away he had been drinking heavily. Mr. Harris, the superintendent, told her about a month before he left that her husband was backward with his insurance money. She had never given him any cause to leave her.—In cross- examination by Mr. Scale, complainant said that she had never acted improperly with any men. She would not sleep with her husband the last six weeks or so before he left on September 17th last on account of him coming home nearly every night in a drunken condition.—Mr. Scale Have not strange men been constantly visiting your house ? —Mrs. Morgan: They use to call occasionally. People passing by would call-people whom I knew.—The Clerk Have strange men visited your house ? Witness No, not strange men. I knew them all.—Mr. Scale Have men visited you on many an occasion, or only occasionally.' Answer Occasionally, sir.—Question Once a week, or two or three times a week ? Answer Two or three times a week.—Question Where was your husdand when these men used to call upon you ? On his duties, sir. — Where they in the habit of staying in the house a long time.' No, Sir? How long did they stay—some of them I About a quarter of an hour or so.—Can you say how many different men used to call upon you in one week, or in one fortnight ? Two or three used to call occasionally, sir ?—Is it not a fact that two or three men often called upon you ? They called upon me sometimes.—Can you suggest why they 11 y called ? No, sir. I can't give you an answer to that, I am sure.—Can you say what time of the day or night it was It was in the day.—Ever at night ? No. air.—You had better be careful. AVill you swear that no men ever visited your house late at night ? No, sir, I can't say that.—Witness was then cross-examined at great length by Mr. Scale as to the visits of certain men in the absence of the husband, but the witness strongly denied that any- thing of an improper nature ever took place. If anybody said that she had been in the habit of having men visitors late at night, they said that which was untrue. Her husband never told her that he was going to leave her for good, and she did not know of any reason for his leaving her, except over his insurance accounts being wrong, She denied wishing a strange tall man, late one night in the winter before last '• Good night, my dear."—Mr. Scale to witness Is it not a fact that your reputation is bad?—Mr. Hughes I object to that question altogether. It is a ridiculous ques- tion.-The Clerk upheld the objection. Cross examination by Mr. Scale continued Witness and her husband were the only occupants of the house at the time of the alleged visits of strange men. Plenty of visitors and relations visited them. No man had ever acted improperly towards her.—Mr. Scale said that if he could prove to the satisfaction of the Bench that com- plainant had committed adultery, then the defen- dant would not be liable for the maintenance of his wife. With regard to the proof, he took it that the same kind of proof would be required by the magistrates as was required in the divorce courts, and that the Bench would be satisfied that defendant had made out his case if he could show that there were repeated visits of strange men under such circumstances as would lead them to think there was something wrong. The witnesses he should call for he defendant had given him their evidence so clearly, and they seemed to be so respectable and reliable that he thought their worships would say that undoubtedly the woman had not been faithful to her husband.—Evidence for the defendant was then given by Mrs. Mary Ann Browning, Cefn-Glas-road, who said that men frequently asked her where Mrs. Morgan, the postman's wife, lived. The men used to call at different times. Mrs. Morgan lived next door but two to witness. She could not say how many men called in one week. When the men called the husband was on his rounds as a post- man. It was well known in the neighbourhood when he would be going his rounds. At last her suspicions were aroused, and she used to stand on her door-step when she could not help seeing what was passing. She had seen men go in the summer time, but in the winter she could not see them. One Sunday night in the winter before last she saw a tall man leave Mrs. Morgan's house, and overheard a conversation.—Mr. Scale You heard a conversation between complainant and this tall man? Witness: Yes, sir.—Mr. Hughes olnected to what the witness overheard being reputed.— The Clerk It is quite admissible.—Mr. Scale Tell us what the conversation was.—Witness Mrs. Morgan said to the tall man. Good night, my dear. You have plenty of time to catch the mail. my dear." Witness did not know who the tall man was.—In answer to Mr. Hughes, witness could not say whether the men used to call for letters or on insurance business, but she had never heard of letters being left there. She could not state the name of any of the men who used to call. —Mrs. Rachel David, Cefn-Glas-road. Bridgend, also gave evidence. The Chairman said that the magistrates all thought that it was a case in which an order should be made, but only a small order, as the case was so -suspicious against the wife. The magis- trates could not allow her more than 3s. 6d. a week. There was nothing positively proved against Mary Morgan, but, as he had said, the case was extremely susDicious.
AN EARLDOM FOR LORD WINDSOR. The earldom of Plymouth (the title to be shortly revived in Lord Windsor) was last held by the brother of the beautiful" Lady Downshire (mother of the il athlete" Marquis and great- grandmother of the present Lord) and Lady Harriet Clive. Maid of Honour to Queen Adelaide. On the death of Lady Downshire the dormant barony of Windsor was called out in favour of Lady Harriet, whose husband, Mr. Clive. was a brother of Lord Powis and a grandson of the Lord Clive. The present Lord Windsor is a grandson of Lady Harriet Clive, afterwards Lady Windsor, and his wife, once known as the "beautiful Miss Paget." is the only daughter of Sir Augustus and Lady Paget. The revival of the old title is very appropriate, for Lord Windsor, who owns Penarth Dock and enormous mineral wealth in South Wales, has always done good service to his party.—Thr World.

PRIZE FIGHT IN THE RHONDDA. DISGRACEFUL SCENE ON A MOUNTAIN. About five o'clock on Tuesday morning a prizft fight for £ 10 a-side took place on the hill top near Treherbert between two well-known members of the sporting fraternity in the locality, whose names have not yet been ascertained by the polico, who got wind of the affair some hours after the contest was over. It appears that on the preceding day the parties haq been to a coursing match, and while drinking at a public-house a dispute occurred about the dogs engaged. It was eventually agreed to settle the question the following morning by means of a fight for £ 10 a-side. A large number- of friends and acquaintances followed the pugilists up the hill about an hour after dawn, and having formed a ring operations were proceeded with at once. It is said that 20 rounds were fought, and the shorter of the two combatants had one of his optics partially closed, and his nose bruised some time befo-e he threw up the sponge. Subsequently a number of fights took place among the spectators who had participated in the coursing match and were interested in the original dispute about the pedigree of the greyhounds. The local police are investigating the matter.
