Bartlett, 5 Charles Smith (conductor), tenor in 2 hours and 54 minutes. Weight of tenor, 14cwt., in A flat. The above is the first peal ever rung in South Wales by a local band, also the first by all the band, except the conductor. ACCIDENT AT PENARTH DOCK.—A singular accident occurred at Penarth Dock on Monday to a youth, aged 18, named Arthur Havord, who fell off the jetty into about 40 feet of water, and but for the promptitude of one of the gatemen, would probably have been drowned. It appeared that the ss West- bourne was coming on the Windsor Slipway for re- pairs. Hovord was walking down the jetty, and whilst attempting to get under a rope, running from a stanchion to the vessel, he slipped, falling first on to the edge of the small boat and thence into the water. A gateman immediately let go the guide and pro- ceeded to the boy's rescne, which he happily effected. The lad fortunately sustained only a few slight brnises and a wetting, though it was thought at first his back was broken by his falling on to the boat. The effect of the" guide" being let go made a difference of three hours to the vessel's being properly cradled. PROPOSED FREE LIBRARY.—A movement is on foot (and is likely at an early date to be brought to a successful issue) for establishing a free public library and reading-room for Penarth and district. The subject has been brought forward with considerable energy by Mr. T. Bevan, Mr. Lewis (Garth), Mr. J. M. Jennings, and other gentlemen. Information for Y the guidance of the promoters is being obtained from the controlling bodies of free libraries in other towns and at the next meeting of the Penarth Local Board a proposition will be submitted in favour of the adoption in the district of the Free Library and Museums Act. It is not apprehended that any great difficulty will be experienced in causing the Board to pass the necessary resolutions; and it is felt that the meeting of ratepayers which will be convened to dis- cuss the question will confirm the resolution in favour of the Act being put in force. The income from tho penny rate will amount to about £ 300 per annum, and this will, in all probability prove sufficient, if kept for a year, to purchase about two thousand volumes. The circulation of such a library averages the lending of each book fifteen times a year, and at this rate the Penarth library should mean a total circulation of 30,000 books. The news-room, it is intended, shall contain newspapers, magazines, and other periodicals. The income will, it is probable, allow of about one- third being set aside,to replenish the library from time to time. In other towns substantial gifts of books have been made to such institutions by gentlemen interested in popular education, and no doubt a similar experience awaits the Penarth library. A PENARTH-BOUND VESSEL ABANDONED.—The British ship Vancouver, from St. John, N&w Bruns- wick, for Penarth, with wood, was abandoned water- logged on the 22nd December, in latitude 47 N., longi- tude 35 W.

SEASONABLE PHILANTHROPY.—On Thursday the children of the poor in Penarth were entertained to tea in the St. Andrew's-hall in celebration of the festive season, Mr. Rees, Mr. Frank Mason, Mr. J. M. Jennings, and a number of ladies having inteies-jed thamselves in the work and arranged for a very suc- uessful gathering of juveniles. PRESENTATION FOR BRAVERY.-On Saturday evening, at the Penarth Boat Club, a silver watch and chain was presented to Mr. T. M. Searle, of the Penarth Boat Club, who, it will be remembered, in September last went into the sea at Penarth Beach and assisted Mr. F. Vyvyan and a drowning man, and succeeded in bringing them ashore. Mr. Vellacott, on behalf of Mr. C. W. Kingdom, made the presentation, and Mr. Searle suitably responded.

Mr. Jenkins said it gave him great pleasure to occupy the chair on such an occa- sion, though the pleasure bore with it the regret at losing one from their midst who bad done so much for the town and district. Mr. Mr. Illtyd B. Nicholl, on behalf the committee, then made the presentation to Mr. and Mrs. Winwood of a splendid tea and coffee service and a purse of gold. The service bore the following inscription:— "Presented to Mr. Winwood by his many friends on leaving Llantwit Major, Christmas, 1822."

BARRY CHAMBER OF TRADE.
BARRY CHAMBER OF TRADE. The adjourned monthly meeting was held at Harry's Restaurant, Barry Dock, on Wednesday evening. Amongst those present were Mr. W. H. Morgan, Mr. E. J. Gould, Mr. Smith-Jones, Mr. Young, Mr. Griffin, Mr. B. T. Pomeroy Mr. Lewis Lewis, Mr. Treharne, Mr. Savers, Mr. Joseph Davies, Mr. Diamond, Mr. Hughes, Mr. H. J. Paul, Mr. Owen, Mr. Baker, Mr. John Phillips, Mr. Garnett, Mr. Hooper, Mr. Milward, Mr. Weston, Mr. J. R. Llewellyn, Mr. A. Jackson (sec.), &c. ADJOURNMENT OF THE MEETING. Mr. Lewis Lewis said he was sorry to state that the President was unable to attend that evening, through illness. He had sent for him (Mr. Lewis) that afternoon, and when he got to his house he had asked him to ask the Chamber to again ad- journ the meeting until next Wednesday night, as there were several very important matters to be brought forward, and he should like to be present when they were discussed. Mr. W. H. Morgan said they had brought Mr. Davies down last week on a fruitless errand therefore he thought, with all due deference to the. President, they could not expect Mr. Davies to come down again next week. He would, therefore, propose that the meeting be not adjourned. Mr. Davies said that, as it was the wish of the President that he should be present when he gave his report, he would prefer that the meeting be adjourned. Mr. Jackson said there was one thing he should like to explain. The president had written a warm letter to him asking why the books of the Chamber had not been forthcoming at the last meeting. He was sorry a mistake had occurred, but he had to d the president that he should not be present, and he had entrusted the books to a gentleman who had promised to be present, but who, however, had not turned uo. Mr. Hughes proposed that the meeting be adjourned until next Wednesday night. Mr. Jackson asked whether they could not go on with part of the business that evening. There was one thing which he wished to do if possible, and that was to place his resignation of the post of secretary in their hands. The Chamber had honoured him by electing him secretary, and two months ago had fixed a salary to the office he found that he had not time to attend to the work of the Chamber in such a manner as he should do, therefore he thought he had better resign. He would call the meetings for them, but he wished it to be understood that he was no longer the secretary. Mr. Griffin, sen., seconded Mr. Hughes' propo- sition. He hoped Mr. Jackson would reconsider his decision, as they had accepted his explanation. Mr. Jackson said he had not withdrawn because of that, but because it was impossible for him to give the necessary time to the Chamber's business. Mr. Phillips seconded Mr. Morgan's proposition, and on a show of hands the amendment was carried, the meeting being thus adjourned untill next Wednesday.

SERIOUS CHARGE OP WOUNDING…
SERIOUS CHARGE OP WOUNDING AT BARB Y DOCK. On Wednesday afternoon, a sailor, named James Cooper, was charged before General Lee. at the Barry Dock police court, with assaulting and wounding Elizabeth Ann Hawkins, the -wife of a pilot, at 25, Fryitt-street, Barry Dock, on the 2nd inst.—Mr. Jones-Lloyd appeared for the defen.ce.- Prosecutrix said prisoner's wife had lodged with her a short time since, and left a little in her debt. On Monday evening at about 11.15 prisoner came, and knocked at her door, and she asked him in. He came into the kitchen, where she was, and she wished him a happy New Year, at the same time asking him to sit down. Sha took a cup of tea to a lady upstairs, and when she came down again he asked her for his bill. She had the bill in her pocket, but she refused to let him have it, as his wife had written an I.O.U. on the back of it. She made a copy of it, which he refused to take, and he attempted to to take the original bill away from her by force, but without success. After a few words he struck her on her right ear with his fist; then took a clock, left with her by his wife as a security for the debt, from the mantlepiece. She attempted to take it away from him, and he struck her again on the ear. and then on her jaw. She tried to push him towards the kitchen door when he took something out of his pocket, and struck her on her right eye. It began to bleed, and he then ran out through the passage, and she followed him. She afterwards went to Dr. Livingstone, who dressed her eye.- Dr. Livingstone said he examined the prosecutrix at mid-day on Tuesday, and he fonnd her bleeding from a triangular wound over the left eye, and the eyelid was falling down over the eye, and the front of the bone was exposed. It was an incised wound, with bruised edges, and there was a dent in the bone. The wound was probably caused by a blunt instrument, applied with some force.—Mr. Jones-Lloyd applied for bail until the following morning, which was granted. James Cooper was charged on remand at the Barry Dock Police Court on Thursday, with assault- ing Elizabeth Hancock on the 2nd inst.—Prosecu- trix's evidence, as given on. Wednesday, was repeated, and the prosecutrix was severely ques- tioned by Mr. Jones-Lloyd, who defended.—James Downing and Dr. Livingstone having given evi- dence, for the prosecution, and the Bench decided to dismiss the case of unlawful wounding, and take it as one of common assault.—The evidence was then repeated, and Mr. Jones-Lloyd summoned up the case for the defence, characterising the case as one of maliciousness and spite on the part of the prosecutrix. The wound was caused by the fall of the prosecutrix against a piece of furniture. He asked the Bench to dismiss the case,land and he submitted the discharges of the prisoners.—Fined P.1 and costs, or 14 days.
ALLEGED THEFT OF A SAILOR'S…
ALLEGED THEFT OF A SAILOR'S BAG AT BARRY DOCK. A NARROW ESCAPE. Wm. Rees, a respectably-dressed sailor, was charged with stealing a bag of clothes; the pro perty of John Jones, a fellow fireman, from off the ss Wave, lying at Barry Dock, on the 27th Decem- ber.—Prosecutor said he and prisoner had been firemen on board the Wave. He went to Newport on Tuesday last, and when he returned he found his bag of clothes gone from the Wave. He next saw his clothes at 46, Sydehham-street, Barry Dock. The clothes and bag were worth 10s., and some other articles which had not been found was worth another 10s. He saw prisoner at Andrew's Coffee Tavern, and asked him if he knew anything about his bag, and prisoner said No, he did not." Prisoner had not a bag of his own. Prisoner ap- peared as if he had been drinking when he saw him.—Thomas Smith, blacksmith, 46, Sydenham- street. Barry Dock, said that on Tuesday afternoon at 4.30 he saw prisoner at Andrew's Coffee Tavern. Prisoner asked him to carry a bag up for him, and he would give him 2s. To- gether they went on board the Wave, and he held the bag whilst prisoner put the clothes in. He then went with prisoner to the Barry Dock Hotel, and prisoner told him he would stay at his house and asked him to carry his bag there, which did.— Dock-constable David Griffiths deposed that at 1.30 a.m. on the 28th of last month from information received he arrested the prisoner at Andrew's Coffee Tavern, Barry Dock, on suspicion of stealing a bag of clothes from the steamship Wave, lying at Barry Dock. Prisoner when arrested said he knew nothing about them. On the way to the police station he said he had only taken his own eloishes ashore. At 11.30 am. he found the bag of clothes (produced) at 46, Sydenham-street, Barry Dock, which the prosecutor afterwards identified as part of his property.—Sergt. Gammon said at 7 p.m. ONL the 28th ult., at the Barry Dock Police Station, he charged the prisoner with stealing three shirts, two pairs of drawers, dungary suit. a scarf, handkerchief, and bag, the property of the prosecutor from the steamship Wave on the 27th.

Cadoxton; and John Arthur, plasterer, Cadoxton, were brought before Major Thornley charged with poaching and assault on land in the occupation of Mr. W. Blake, and belonging to the Marquess of Bute. —The evidence showed that a gamekeeper, named Harry Sam ways (in the employ of the Marquess of Bllte) and Police-constable Albert Berry, of the Glamorganshire County Constabulary, were on the highway at Sully at 12.30 a.m., when they observed three men, accompanied by three dogs, turn into a field near the Cogan Hall Farm. The dogs were immediately set to work the field, which they did right through. The men then turned their atten- tion to an adjoining field, the dogs again working it. The officer and the gamekeeper then went around to where the men were stationed, the former asking what they were doing there. One of the men (Hoddinott) said that they were on their way to Cadoxton, whereupon the officer said that he would take them into custody to Penarth. Hoddi- nott; who by this time had become very abusive, replied that he would die before he would go to Penarth. at the same time rush- ing at the constable with a knife and inflict- ing a wound 011 one of his fingers. Sam ways eventually managed to get behind Hoddinott, and then succeeded in wresting the knife from his grasp. Hoddinott was afterwards arrested by Berry, but not before a struggle, during which the constable's uniform, was torn. Luck also gave much trouble to Samways, the gamekeeper being struck in the face, so it is alleged, by him. So violent did the men become that he had to be handcuffed, but even then he managed again to strike Sumways in the face. The third man was not at all abusive, and stood peacefully by.-Tho Magistrate decided to remand Hoddinott to Penarth on Monday, at the same time discharging the s other prisoners with a warning.

FAILURE OF A PENARTH GROCER. MEETING OF CREDITORS. The first meeting of the creditors of Herbert Edward Bosley. of Hickman House, Windsor-road, Penarth, grocer, was held at the offices of the Official Receiver, Mr. T. II. Stephens, at Cardiff on Friday. — The statement of the debtor's affairs showed the gross liabilities, to be J6693 9s. 7d., assets £470 83. Ad., the deficiency being sE20S 17s. 6d. The debtor alleges that his causes of failure are—difficulties in collecting accounts, stoppage of credit, and pressure from creditors. The Official Receiver's observations were :-The receiving order was made upon the debtor's* own petition, upon which he had been adjudicated bankrupt. The debtor commenced business in June, 1890, by taking over a business at Penarth, at that time carried on by a Mr. Evans, for which hepa,id.S300,thepfica agreed for stock, fittings, fixtures, and utensils, the promises being held upon a yearly tenancy at £ 50 per annum. The debtor had no capital of his own, but his wife had certain shares upon which he arranged a. loan, being allowed to draw for business purposes to the extent of £ 500. He has drawn up to £491 odd, and the £30 mentioned in the statement is the estimated balance from the securities held by his bankers. The debtor, who was a stranger to the locality, found that the business was not as good as he antiei- cipated, and in order to compete with others a considerable credit trade had to be done, and in consequence of depression and strikes trade fell off. His takings at the commencement he estimates at R,30 per week-, and this increased to JSM latterly they have been on au average £ 30 per week. The payments of salaries are returned at £ 2 10s. a week. He has kept no books of account to show his trading or financial position. No terms have been lodged for a composition. In order to save expense the stock has been sold, and realised £ 206 odd.—It was explained, that the Official Receiver represented a dozen creditors, and held proxies from four Bristol creditors to the amount of £ 92 10s. 4d. to vote for the appoint- ment of Mr. E. T. Collings, of Bristol, as trustee. It was also mentioned that Mr. T. H. Belcher, solicitor, Cardiff, held two proxies for A 191 6s. Id. in. favour of Mr. C. E. Dovey, Cardiff, as trustee, but as Mr. Belcher was unable to be present in con- sequence of illness, his proxies were of no avail, and. on the proposition of the Official Reoeiver, Mr. Collinga was appointed trustee.—Messrs. Charles Gardner (Gardner, Thomas, and Co., Bristol), H. Davey (Franklin, Morgan, and Davey, Bristol), j atd Mr. J. G. Marsh, Cardiff, were appointed the committee of inspection, and the public examination having been fixed for January 6 at the Town-hall, Cardiff, the proceedings ter- minated.
