CONGREGATIONAL BIBLE CLASS -The members of the Men's Bible Class in connection with the Barry Congregational Church met on Sunday afternoon last, and addresses were delivered by Mrs. Inglis, Barry, Mr. Hotchkiss, and Mr. John Haves. There were about 60 members present, and the addresses were listened to with much interest. Mr. Hotchkiss expressed himself very pleased with the progress they had made since he was here last. and thought great credit was due to the officers and promoters of the classes. GLLAN'D CON'CEUT.—A grand evening concert will be held on Wednesday next at the Barry Congrega- tional Church in aid of the Church's building minis. The chair will be occupied by Mr. J.

Ward, C.T., in the chair. At the conclusion of the lodge business an interesting musical programme was gone through. The chief diversion of the evening was "questioning the chairman." A question was put to the chairman upon the rules of the Order, and if not answered immediately he was compelled to vacate the chair to the questioner, who was himself subjected to the same test. The proceedings terminated about 9.30, the evening having been much enjoyed. MISSION SERVICES.—On Sunday a special mission was commenced at the Barry Congregational Church by Mr. Hotchkiss, of Birmingham. The services were not so well attended as might have been expected, but the weather and aounter attractions were against a large attendance. During the week special services for women and young men were held. GrWXLYM EVANS' Quinine Bitters is purely vege- table, and certified by Analysts to be pure and harmless.

This is the largest steamer ever docked at Barry, the dimensions beingLength, 400 feet; breadth, 48 -feet; depth, 32 feet 8 inches; and deadweight capa- city. 7,300 tons. The steamer called at Barry for bunkers only, and had to sail on Saturday night under any circumstances. The coal was supplied by Messrs. Mann, George, and Co., coal contrac- tors, of London and Cardiff, who loaded over 1,800 tons in the remarkably quick time of eighteen hours. The steamer commenced load- ing at 1.30 a.m. on Saturday, and finished at 8 p.m. the same day. This is said to be the quickest work on record for such a quantity, and reflects great credit on the suppliers and Messrs. Evan Thomas, Radcliffe and Co., the local agents for the steamer. The loading was personally superintended by Messrs. Mann, George and Co.'s local manager and Captain Hesketh for Messrs. Evan Thomas, Radcliffe and Co.

Stokes, Holton-road, Barry Dock. It appears that a number of seafaring men entered the booth, and two of the number re- quested Stokes to box with them. Stokes consented to brave an encounter with one of the men, and whilst stripped and in the ring the man's companions loudly proclaimed that if Stokes "bested" their man "they would do for him." Stokes had the best of it, and immediately a knife was produced by the man's com- panions, wh..) threatened to stab Stokes, but they were prevented from doing any injury by those who were present. Police aid was summoned, but up to the present no arrest has been made. The men, it is -Alle-,ed, belong to Liverpool. ACCIDENT AT THE DOCK.-About mid-day on Wednesday a lad, one of the crew of the Norwegian bwju.e Albion, now discharging flooring boards in the Barry Dock Jiasin, was engaged in the hold in cou- xjectiQij wj.th the d'&eWijjjig of the cargo, when three tiers: of boards capsized aa4 fell on his leg, causing a simple fracture.

Wedlake, and carried unani- mously. A VESSEL FROM HAMBCRG.—The steamer Whit- field, hailing from the cholera-stricken port of Ham- burg, was signalled off Barry on Monday evening, and Dr. Neale, the medical officer of health, declined to permit her to enter until she had been thoroughly examined and disinfected, which was done on Tuesday morning by Mr. Leyshon, the Board's inspector. The vessel was allowed subsequently to enter the dock. CADOXTON, SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—On TUESDAY W'teK: Mrs. G. Willett, wife of Mr. G. Willett, of the South Wales 1::itar, met with a very Beriods accident. Mrs. Willett was walking along the garden walk of her residence at Charlotte-road, and in consequence of the rather slippery condition of the path she fell down, fractur- ing her wrist, and giving a severe shock to her system. Dr. Gore was immediately sent for, and did all that lay in his power to alleviate Mrs. Willett's sufferings. Mrs. Willet is progressing as favourable as can be ex- pected, although it will be some time before she will be able to use her wrist again. I.O.G.T.—The usual weekly meeting of St. David's Lodge was held at the Shaftesbury Hotel on Thurs- day, Bro. Richards, lodge-deputy, in the chair.

NARROW ESCAPE OF A DIVER.—On Friday, at eleven a.m., a diver, employed from CardiS for the purpose of assisting in the operations for floating the vessel Accrington. had a very narrow escape of losing his life. It appears that the water had been pumped out, the vessel plugged, and the diver from Cardiff had been sent down on the outside to p.ttuh up the hole. To do this he had to remove one of the plugs which had been placed in the vessel for the purpose of stopping the inflow of water. As the plug was removed the suction drew in the man's arm right up to the shoulder, and he was kept tightly wedged to the ship's side. The diver telegraphed in the usual wav to those above the water, but they were unable to removo him from his perilous condition. A messenger was sent to the Penarth Dock, and Mr. Taylor, the diver attached to the latter place, immediately proceeded to the spot. Tie went under the water, and after some difficultyreleascrl the diver from his dangerous position. When brought to the surface, after having been under water for over one hour and a ha If, it is needless to state that he was in a very exhausted condition. FALL FROM A SCAFFOLD.—On Friday afternoon, about 3.20. a man named Thomas Hickle, residing at James-street, Penarth, who was employed as a labourer at the new Hall which is being erected for Messrs. Andrews and Sons, met with a frightful accident. It appears that he had just carried a load of material up the ladder, and as he was stepping from the ladder on to the scaffold fell back on to the road, a distance of about 40ft. A man working on the scaffold neither saw nor heard the man fall, and nothing was known of it until a little girl, who saw him fall from a. distance, ran into the yard and told the men of what had happened. Dr. Moynan was immediately in attendance, and ordered the man's removal to the Infirmany. The man was frightfully braised, and his hip bone was fractured. Thomas Bickle, of James-at.. Penarth, a labourer in the employ of Mr. Solomon Andrews, who fell from a scaffold at Peuarth on Fri- day morning, and was afterwards conveyed to the Cardiff Infirmary, died at the institution on Monday evening, the immediate cause of death being ex- haustion, consequent upon the injuries he sustained. APPOINTMENT OF MR. EDWARDS'S SUCCESSOR -At a meeting of the directors of the Taff Vale Rail- way Company, held on Tuesday, it was decided to appoir.t Mr. Samuel Thomas, collector at Penarth Dock, to the discharge of the duties heretofore 'en- trusted to the late Mr. James Edwards. Mr. Thomas has, since the death of Mr. Edwards, taken charge of the dock, and is, of course, fully conversant with all the details of the business and the practical manage- ment of affairs. PROPOSED PRESENTATION TO INSPECTOR KING. —A meeting, called by Mr, H. S. Watkins, was held at the National Schoolroom, Penarth, on Wednesday evening to inaugurate a movement for presenting Inspector King with a gift in recognition of his long and faithful services. There was a representative attendance. The Rev. W. B. Sweet-Escott consented to act as president of the movement, and Mr. D. S. Johnson, of St. Fagan's Hotel, as treasurer.— 11 -7 An energetic committee was formed, and it is anticipated that a substantial testimonial will ultimately be presented to Inspector King.—A letter was read from General Lee, of The Mount, Dinas Powis, regretting that he could not be present, expressing sympathy with the undertaking, and promis- ing a subscription to the fund. LLANTWIT-MAJOR. DEATH.—We regret to record the death of Mr. Thomas Boldwin, of the Curriers Arms, at the early age of 34 years.

He leaves a widow and four children to mourn his loss. The funeral took place on Monday last at the Parish Church, the vicar officiating. The body was followed to the grave by a large number of his fellow townspeople. SCHOOL BOARD.—An adjourned meeting of the above Board was held at the Board-rooms on Monday last. There were present Mr. D. J. Jenkins (in the chair), Messrs. Nicholl, Thomas, Deere, and Hopkins. A number of cheques were signed, and after a long discussion the upon hour of meeting, the time was altered from six p.m. to seven p.m. The attendance officer reported the attendance since the holidays was not satisfactory. This concluded all the business of general interest.
TRANSFER OF THE MARINE HOTEL LICENSE. ACTION BY THE MINISTERS' ASSOCIATION. At the monthly meeting of the Barry and Cadoxton Ministers' Association, held on Tuesday last, attention was given to the action of the Licensing Justices at Penarth on the previous day, in granting a transfer from the Marine Hotel, Barry Island, to a house in course of construction at the end of the Island near the dock entrance. It was felti that the position of the house to which the transfer is granted is such as to make it ex- tremely undesirable at the present time that it should have a license. There is but one house occupied in the vicinity there are only eight houses in course of construction; there is no proper lighting of the roads there is a very steep cliff around the entire end of the Island near by, which will be perilous to intoxicated or partially intoxicated persons, and unless the police are specially told off for duty there will be no adequate supervision, while proximity to the dock will be a great temptation to seamen and others to resort to this house. The followinO" re- solution was unanimously carried :— ° That this association, belieying that the highly nn- satisfactory circumstances of the esse were not suffi- ciently taken into account lay the Bench, expresses strong disapproval of the course taken by their worships in granting tliig transfer, aild hopes that their decision ,may be reversed, !!I

OPENING OF THE BARRY PARISH HALL. SPEECH BY MR. JOHN CORY. On Wednesday afternoon a very pleasurable event took place, in the opening of the newly- built Parish Hall. Some time ago, in January, at- one of the meetings held in the little wooden building, an expression was given bo the feeling which had existed for some time in the minds of many parishioners that the parish required a 'larger and better adapted building than that it possessed at the time. The Rector, the Rev. Canon Allen, was approached on the subject, and he thought a building costing between two and three hundred pounds would be as much as the parish could possibly afford to erect. To this several demurs were made, and several gentlemen kindly came forward and offered to guarantee any deficit. The present building was then contemplated, and Messrs. Kerapson and Fowler, of Llandough. were commissioned to prepare the plans. Mr. Smart, builder, Barry, was employed to erect the building, and his and the architects' work has given complete satisfaction. The build- ing, which is 60ft. in length, and 27ft. in width, has been built of red brick, and will seat 400 persons. It is 27ft. in height, and lighted by four windows both sides of the room, each end being an ornamental circular light. At the head of the room is placed a stage, to be used for concerts, entertainments, &c. Underneath is a heating chamber. The total cost of erection and fitting is about £ 1,000. The opening proceedings of Wednesday commenced with a short service at the Church. The sermon was preached by Canon Allen. from Psalm 127, verse 3-" Lo children are an heritage of the Lord." In the course of his remarks, Canon Allen dwelt on the necessity of Christian examples in the home, and the import- ance of Sunday School work. The Sunday School exerted a great influence on the future of the nation. The children of the present day were the men of the future, and the future welfare of the country depended on the training given tc the children now.—At the conclusion of the service a collection was taken towards the deficit still re- maining in the building fund. The congregation then wended their way to the new building, which was opened by Mr. John Cory with a silver key presented to him by the Rev. Canon Allen. The spectators then proceeded inside, and a dedicatory prayer was offered by the Rev. Canon Allen. Amongst those present were :—Mrs. and Miss Cory, Mrs. and Misses Allen, the Rev. J. Price, Rev. Mr and Mrs. De Heume, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, Mr. J. Robinson and Miss Robinson, Rev. Graham Payne, Mrs. R. S. Robinson, &c. Mr. John Cory then gave an address. He said :—I am exceedingly gratified to be here with you on this very interesting occasion-the opening of your new Hall. It will be, I am sure, the scene of many a good work attempted, and accomplished, in the interest of the social, intellectual, and moral welfare of the people. When my esteemed friend, Canon Allen, reqaested my presence, I could not possibly refuse him, knowing and appreciating, as I do, his large heartedness, and catholicity of spirit, and readiness to enter into, and co-operate in every good work for God and humanity. (Applause.) In these days, so especially marked by liberty of thought and action, we often hear of the social and religious atmostphere becoming very stifled by the petty sectarianism and narrowness of spirit in certain quarters, and it is truly re- freshing to come in contact with a clergyman whose ideas are so thoroughly in harmony with true liberty, whose ministrations for so many years in this neighbourhood have ever been characterised by true Christian tolera- tion and who has evidenced a thorough disdain for that unhallowed, unprofitable work of en- deavouring to palm off upon unwilling hearts and minds the claims of an Established State Church but has rather set himself to the nobler mission of seeking to exalt Christ, the Saviour of the world, and to bring the kingdom of God into men's hearts and lives and homes. I pray the Lord may long spare his useful life and bless all he undertakes in the interest of our Redeemer's kingdom, to which, I am sure, you will all say Amen." (Applause.) As I have already intimated, I look forward to this Hall being the centre of operations for the intel- lectual and moral elevation of the people. I rejoice to note that the valuable work of the Sunday School will take the pre-eminence. This building could not be devoted to a nobler cause than the religious training of the young. Sunday Schools have wielded a powerful influence in the past. They have been, and are now, universally amongst the fore rank of the up-lifting forces of the world. I sincerely trust that the teachers who will engage in this glorious work will be truly consecrated men and women, who will have a lofty conception of their high vocation, and will not be content with merely making Bible scholars, but aim. under Divine guidance, at making Christians, and building up Christ-like characters. I have no doubt that certain evenings will be set apart fo. the fostering and developing of intellectual culture, by means of literary and debating classes and popular instruct-ive lectures. These agencies can- not be too highly estimated, as producing habits of thought and reading, and the steady pursuit of knowledge which are such safeguards against the many demoralising influences which allure men and women away from all the nobler aspirations of the soul and the cultivation of the higher enjoyments of the mind to grovel &mid,and against the lower gratifications of the sense, till every trace of the Divine, which gives the true nobility to men, is totally effaced. (Hear, hear.) Then, healthy amusements and entertainments of an eleV^ting character will form a, part of the weekly programme, such as we shall be favoured with in the course of evening. These are necessary counter-attractions 16 the prevailing evils which should not be ignored by those who have the moral and social welfare of the masses at heart. Again, I am sure the promoters of this Hall will give a prominent place to the great import- ant work ot temperance teaching and agita- tion. It is a cause Pt gfgtind regret to all right thinking minds that dven at this early stage of the history of this growing and rising town, the evils wrought by intemperance have developed to an alarming extent, and we see on every hand the pressing need for the earnest advocacy of the principle of total abstinence from the poisonous liquor that steals away men's brains, turning them info worse than brutes, draining their pockety IlapoVerishing their homes, and inflicting life-long misery upon themselves andjtheir families. (" Shame.") Let me urge upon you to give this department of Christian reform your increasing earnest attention. I believe largely in the power of moral suasion and on the principle that pre- vention is better than cure. (Applause.) I would impress upon you the importance of training the young in the principles and practice of total abstinence by means of Bands of Hope, thereby providing them with a protector that will save them from being engulfed in the terrible flood of intemperance which has swept, and is now sweep- ing, many thousands of our fellow-creatures to temporal and eternal destruction. (Hear, hear.) I will close these cursory remarks by again ex- pressing my pleasure at being thus present with you, and my best wishes for the true success of all the good work you propose carrying on in this Hall for the uplifting and ennobling of tho character of the youth, and manhood, and womanhood of Barry and the neighbourhood. (Loud and prolong cheering.) Rev. Canon Allen, in a short speech, thanked Mr. Cory for his kindness, and mentioned that he hoped all would do what they could to clear off the remainder of the debt-about £400. Mr. John Cory, amidst applause, then gave a donation of Y-10. At the conclusion of the opening ceremony the children of the Barry Church had a tea. being waited on by the lady members of the Church. In the evening a concert was held in the hall, which was well filled. Several professional musicians had kindly consented to appear. Miss Kate Tully, R.A.M., charmed the company with some splendid songs, and Miss Alice White, R.A.M., played several classical pianoforte solos in fine style. After the local performers Mr. Taylor was received with especial favour, and his contribu- tions were much enjoyed. There was a large attendance. The following is the programme :— Song, "The sailor's grave," Mr. Taylor; song, Sunshine and rain," Mrs. Powell; pianoforte sol -Ballade in G minor.

Doyle outside right, J. M. Lenticle. Reserves J. Stuart, W. M'Cormick, T. Goodyear. BARRY V. COGAN MATCH. Mr. F. John writes as follows:—I shall be greatly obliged if you will kindly insert the follow- ing, as I should like to clear myself As referee in the match,.I think it my duty to contradict the report which appeared in the Echo football, edition on Saturday, and to give the correct score, which is Barry, 1 try Cogan, 1 minor. Re- ferring to the Cogan representative's report I find that he has Barry 1 disputed try, and Cogan 1 dis- puted try. The visitors' disputed try, as he calls it, was got by their taking the ball over the home goal line, and A. Medcroft (the visitors' captain) was in the act of falling on the ball when S. Wright (the Cogan half-back) illegally tackled the said player, and, as stated in the Welsh Rugby Rule No. 40, If a try would have undoubtedly been gained but for unfair play and interference of the defending side, the referee shall adjudge a .try," and as a try would have been scored in this case, but for the illegal tackling of the half-back, I adjudged a try as the rule stated. The Barryites kicked for goal, and the Coganites charged the kick. I do not see how your correspondent can get the idea of a disputed try. I cannot under- stand where he gets the Cogan's disputed try from, as stated in his report, unless Ihe scored it himself on the touch-line, as the homesters did not manage to cross the Barryifces' line. Neither myself nor anybody else had heard anything about this disputed try, as stated until we read of it in the Echo.
THE CHARGE OF NEGLECT. PRISONERS IN THE BOX. At the Barry Dock Police-court on Thursday, before Mr. O. H. Jones and General Lee, Henry and Louisa. Randell, of Cadoxton, were charged, under the 1st Section of the Act for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, with neglecting i heir chil- dren. Mr. White (Cory and White) appeared for the prosecution.—Mrs. Hooper's evidence, as given at the Penarth Police-court on Monday, w^s re- peated, Mrs. Hooper adding that she had ;seen matter oozing from the feet and hands .ttt the children. She had seen the mother bamp the head of the eldest boy on the wall, and throw stones at the children in the streets. When she gave them food they ate it ravenously.— The defen- dants elected to be dealt with by the Bench.- Hester Hooper, who lived three doors from defen- dants at Cogan, said she had seen the children always dirty and insufficiently clothed. She could see marks where vermin had bitten them. She had seen th9 children eating dirty turnip rinds. The parents wei'6 ttean/ alv^y^ drunk, — oonstable Thomas Hwy Evftiis, Cogaii, said on Monday. Sept, 12. he visited the defendants' house. When fle went in he found 4 children there, dirty and crying. They had some kind of clothing. There was only a bucket in the room. The room smelled fearfully. He searched the room, and couldn't find any food in the room, but downstairs he found a sheep's head. Mrs. Randell was, at the time, under the influence of drink. The femael defendant and her landlady were often quarrelling over the drink.-Frederick Raynon Smithers, Inspector of the R.S.P.C.C., said on the 14th Sep- tember he went to the house, and the female de- fendant brought in three of the children. They were fairly clothed. On examining the eldest boy, he found he had been bitten by vermin, and in his head were lice. He found no food in the house. The female defendant told him her husband had only given her lis. the week before, and the previous week to that only 2s. — Mr. Roberts, of 22, High-street, Barry, gave evidence as to the wages earned by Randell, and he said he was prepared to swear that defendant's average earn- ing during the last five months was not more that 8s.—Mr. D. Edwards, relieving officer, said he went to the defendant's house at 9, Cadoxton- moors, and took the children to the Union. The children were exceptionally clean, and the two youngest quite a picture. The children did not appear to be wanting food.—For the defence the male prisoner said he had tried to keep his children in clothes, but owing to slackness of trade he had not beenable to give them clothes. The children had always had food to eat. The reason of the dirty condition of the children was because his wife went to work to get food for the children, and could not attend to them.—The female defendant said a lot of lies had been told, and the reason she had no furni- ture was because the landlord took it away nine months ago, and she was toa poor to get more. -After commenting on the evidence and the smallness of their wages, and that since the inspection they had endeavoured to keep their children properly, the Bench said they would be bound over in the sum of £ 20 for twelve months to come up for judgment if (Tfilied upon. If they did their duty to their children they would hear no further of the matter, but if not they would be punished for the present offinoe.
