NATIONAL HONOUR FOR A FORMER RESIDENT OF BARRY. THE Welshpeople generally, and those of the Barry district in particular, have been honoured by an important appoint- ment which has just fallen to the lot of a gentleman who, some years ago, was a resident of the district of Barry, Mr Thomas Morgan Joseph, son of the late Mr Thomas Joseph, of the Buttrills, Barry, having been selected to fill a prominent post in the Heralds Office, I London. This fact, we hope, points to an early recognition of the claims of the Principality to such an extent that it may be the means of securing the re-appoint- ment of the Rouge Dragon, which has long been in abeyance, for Wales. While England has its Garter King of Arms Scotland its Lyon King of Arms; Ireland, too, its proper officers, Wales alone has been without its Chief of the Heralds, whereas it will be readily acknowledged that Wales truly boasts of the oldest, purest, and noblest blood which the world possesses, beating even old Castile or the Almanack de Gotha. Mr Joseph, the gentleman upon whom the distinction referred to has just been conferred, is a brother-in-law to the Rev E. Morris, the respected rector of Cadoxton-Barry. A BARRY GENTLEMAN AND THE VAGARIES OF THE POST OFFICE. AN incident has occurred in the Barry district during the past week which possesses both serious and amusing aspects. A certain tradesman one day handed in over the counter at Cadoxton Post Office a parcel addressed (in the native tongue) to a gentleman at Peny- bont-ar-Ogwy. The parcel was, of course, duly accepted, but its unfortunate journey, in the futile efforts on the part of the postal authorities to find the place named, proved a perfect" wild goose chase." Our Welsh friends are aware that the parcel was destined to proceed to a well-known town in Glamorganshire, scarcely thirty miles from Barry, but after wandering about from place to place, and from pillar to post, for several days, the package, thickly dotted with post marks of places all over the Princi- pality, was at last returned to Cadoxton marked Place not known We are sorry for the linguistic ignorance and in- capacity of the postal authorities, but the incident only proves that officialdom in this important department of the public service is not in any way in touch with the Welsh national character, otherwise one, at least, of the long string of postal staff, through whose hands the parcel in question must have passed during its itinerant experiences last week, must have known that the fearful-looking name, Penybont-ar-Ogwy, simply means the innocent neighbouring town of Bridgend. On the return of the parcel to its starting point, the sender was charged repeat-postage on the package being re-addressed, but. acting upon our advice, he has declined to pay a second time, and, on the contrary, has preferred an indignant protest against the post office authorities for their manifest inability to fulfil their obligations with regard to a perfectly legitimately addressed parcel such as the one in question. A sugges- tion has been made—and we think it is a fairly reasonable one-that the notorious parcel should now be sent on a trip to the Mediterranean, in the hope that, some day, at least, it may fall into the hands of the expectant addressee at Penybont- ar-Ogwy.
-0. LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES The Sites Com- mittee of the Barry HARRY PUBLIC OFFICES and Cadoxton Local AND FREE LIBRARY. Board have at last come to an agree- ment upon one im- portant point, that of the proposed site of permanent public offices and free library in the Barry district, for at a meeting of the com- mittee, held on Tuesday last, several schemes were considered, and it was eventually resolved to recommend the Local Board to negotiate for I 0 the acquirement of an aerc and a half of land at the corner of Tynewydd-road and Orossways- street, off Holton-road, Barry Dock. It is now, therefore, probablo that the Local Board are within measurable distance of arriving at » distinct understanding as to where the per- manent public offices and free library will be established. There is no doubt that a considerable amount of THE NEW LOCAL surprise was experienced on .MAGISTRATES. Monday last when the official ii t of thirty-three new magistrates for Glam- organshire was announced in the public Press Still, so far\ as the Barry and Penarth* districts are concerned, there i: we thi::k, hut little tOo complain of. "We have before expressed an opinion on this subject. There are one or two gentlemen in the Barry district whose publie services richly merit the addition of their names to the Commission of the Peace, but, hitherto, pt: any rate, the authorities have not acceded to popular feeling in this respect. At the same time the local public are justly proud of the honour which has beea conferred upon the general manager of the Barry Graving Dock and Engineering Company. As chairman of the School Board, representing a population of fully fifteen thousand, Air John Lowdon has worked most assiduously and successfully in promotion of the best interests of the district, and his appointment as County magistrate is a graceful act of recognition which he fully deserves. The other uew magistrates appointed for our district are County Councillor Clifford J. Cory, St. Lythan's Down Mr Philip Morel, Mr John Cory, an(? Mr W- B. Gibbs, of Penarth. The members of the Barry Dock BARRY R.A.O.H. DRAHATIC R.A.O.B. Dramatic SOCIETY AND THE Society have this NURSING ASSOCIATION, week matured a scheme whereby it is expected the funds of the Nursing Association will be materially strengthened. With the aid of several local friendly societies, they have decided upon organising a grand benefit performance, to be held at the Barry Dock Public-hall, on Wednes- day evening, the 11th of April, and the whole of the proceeds will be handed over to the Nursing Association, the expenses of the entertainment to be voluntarily defrayed by the working-men themselves. To the pro- moters we say Bravo," and earnestly hope their efforts will be very largely crowned with success.

Jones was foreman, at Barry Dock Police Court on Wednesday afternoon last, touching the death of a marine fireman named Charles Benson, aged 28, of 13, Burlington-street. The evidence of Mrs Benson (the widow), Dr Bray, Edward Coysh, and William Morris, showed that on the 13th inst. deceased was at work on board the steamer Ardanbahn, lying at Barry Dock, when he went off in a swoon, and struck his head heavily against the boiler in the stoke-hole, death resulting on the 20th. A verdict of Death from extravasation of blood on the brain was returned.

FUNERAL OF LADY WYATT, COWBRIDGrE. On Monday afternoon last the remains of Lady Wyatt, of Dimlands, Cowbridge, were interred in the Nicholl family vault in Usk Churchyard, amid general tokens of grief. The deceased lady, who was the widow of Sir Digby Wyatt. died at her residence on Wednesday last, at the age of 81. Among the mourners were Mrs George Nicholl and Mr Bleddyn Nicholl, Mr Digby Nicholl, and Miss E. E. Nicholl. There was a large number of the tenants of the deceased lady present, as well as several of the tradesmen of Usk. The service, which was choral, was taken by the Rev P. L. c. Nash (rector of Usk), Rev W. A. W. Evans (rector of Llandegveth), and the Rev W. E. Parry (Usk). Miss Merritt presided at the organ. The floral wreaths were of the most beautiful description.
