A FAMILY SQUABBLE AT PENARTH. DISGRACEFUL ALLEGATIONS AGAINST A MARRIED WOMAN. On Monday last, at Penarth Police Court, Margaret Giddy, a married woman, with a baby in her arms, living at Grangetown, Cardiff, was charged by her brother-in-law, John Thomas, dock pilot, 17, Dock-road, Penarth, with an assault and doing damage to his property on the 24th inst. Mr Arthur Rees, solicitor, Cardiff, appeared for the prosecution. The circumstances of the case, Mr Rees said, were of a disgraceful character. On the day named defendant and some other women went to the pier-head and set upon Thomas, bullying him and pelting him with stones, the latter hurting him considerably on the head. Tefendant and her friends afterwards went up to complainant's house and uprooted the flowers and trees in the garden.—During the hearing of the case the defendant wept and accused complainant of having grossly abused his wife and her (Mrs Giddy'a) little boy, who bad been homeless and starving at Penarth ever since. She also accused complainant of having made use of disgusting allegations against herself, in which, she said, there was not a particle of truth. -For the prosecution two men, named Vincent and Spiller, were examined, and for the defence Alice Schietz (defendant's daughter) and Mrs Bowen gave evidence.—Mr J. Duncan (who, with Mr Philip Morel, occupied the Bench) said both charges would be dismissed, the magistrates also 1 believing the insinuations brought by Thomas against defendant were of a most disgusting and disgraceful character.—Defendant thanked Mr Duncan, and left the court followed by a string of sympathetic devotees.

SUFFERINGS OF THE CREW OF I APENARTH-LADEN VESSEL. Information has just reached Liverpool of the sinking of the steamer Valetta after collision with an iceberg. The crew had a narrow escape with their lives, and were all frost-bitten. The Valetta left Penarth on the 5th of April with a cargo of coal for the St. Lawrence. When off the Canadian coast she got into the ice, and was held there for five days. While in this condition an immence iceberg struck her, crushing in her side and causing her to fill rapidly. The vessel, having a heavy cargo, sank quickly, and the crew—29 all told-were left little time to save their lives. Thev got out their boats. They had only time to save what clothes they stood in, The Valetta went down, and the crew in their small boats had a most trying experience for 38 hours. The weather was terribly cold, and all of the men were more or less frost-bitten. At the end of this time the Norwegian barque Liberta rescued them. The rescue was very timely. The men were on board the Liberta about twelve days before she could reach a port, as the ice had formed a thick belt around the coast. The Valetta was an iron screw steamer of 1,382 tons. and was the proporty of Mr W. Gray, of West Hartlepool. The shipwrecked men were landed in Canada on the 4th instant.
PROCEEDINGS AGAINST A PENARTH REFRESHMENT HOUSE KEEPER, SUPPLYING YOUTHS AFTER MID-NIGHT. At Penarth Police-court on Monday last— before Mr J. Duncan and Mr P. Morel—John William Wilson, refreshment house keeper, Glebe- street, Penarth, was charged by Police-constable 240 with keeping his house open for trading purposes after midnight on the 17..h inst. The Constable said he entered defendant's house about 12 15 a.m. on the date named, and found three or four young men sitting down in one of the rooms drinking gingerbeer and eating biscuits. In a back room were two young men playing bagatelle. He asked the defendant why he allowed his house to be occupied for trading at that time of night. Defendant replied he did not know the young mca were there. He, therefore, turned them all out, and extinguished the lights. Six or seven men left the place a couple of minutes previously.—In reply to the Bench, defendant said he did not supply the lads with refreshments.—Mr Duncan said Wilson, by keep- ing his licensed house open after eleven o'clock, rendered himself liable to a penalty of JB5. He would, however, be lined 10s, and cautioned against a repetition of the offence. I PENARTH LOCAL BOARD AND THE TOLL-GATE QUESTION. At the Public Works Committee of the Penarth Local Board on Monday evening last, Councillor W. B. Shepherd presiding, a discussion arose as to the desirability of taking joint action with the Barry and Cadoxton Board and the Dinas Powis Highway Board to compel the Cardiff Corporation to abolish the only toll-gate (in Penarth-road) existing in Glamorganshire. — The Chairman thought Mr Harpur, the Cardiff borough engineer, had been incorrectly reported when he disclaimed any liability on the Cardiff Corporation's part. Cardiff took already 70 to 75 per cent. of the tolls, and this amount was laid out in maintaining the road within their borough. It was seemingly advantageous to Cardiff to keep the gate in ex- istence, for they had tolls on the brain. (Laughter.) The Penarth people had helped them too long, and it was high time they were relieved of the burden. They were quite prepared to take care of their own side.-The other members concurred with these remarks, and it was decided that the board on Monday next, at their monthly meeting, take measures to have the gate removed. CARDIFF CORPORATION AND THE TOLL BAR. At the meeting of the Cardiff Corporation Public Works Committee on Thursday last (Alderman Daniel Lewis presiding) a letter was read from Mr I Franklen. clerk to the Glamorgan County Council, as follows :—" We have been pressing Lord Bute's agents for terms for the redemption of the Penarth- road toll, but have Dot succeeded yet in getting any definite reply. The late Mr Corbett had the matter in hand, and his death delayed it some- what. We are now told now that it is a matter in which Lord Bute is understood to take a personal interest, and that nothing can be said until he has decided. We shall not fail to remind his agents of the subject from time to time."—Mr Harpur, the borough engineer, reminded the committee that the toll-gate in Penarth-road was not in the corporation district, but in the district of the Penarth Local Board. The removal of the toll would chiefly benefit the Penarth people, and he thought that the expenses connected with the taking over of the road should be borne jointly by the Glamorganshire County Council and the Penarth Local Board.—The matter then dropped. PRESS OPINION ON THE MATTER. It is a hopeful sign that members of the Penarth Local Board are taking the decided stand with reference to the toll-gate indicated by the opinions expressed at the meeting of their public works committee on Monday evening last. It is some- what novel to hear the gate described as advantageous to Cardiff." That proposition we most positively traverse, for, as we have pointed ¡ out over and over again, the gate is an imposition upon inhabitants of Cardiff who can least afford to pay the extra fares charged to cover the tolls. That the existence of the gate at this time of day is a reflection upon the public bodies which permit its continuance we readily agree, though in that disgrace the Penarth Local Board, as well as the Glamorgan County Council and the Barry and Dinas Powis Highway Boards, must take their share with the Cardiff County Council. We are not disposed, however, to quarrel as to terms, nor as to the exact apportionment of blame. If the Penarth Local Board can succeed in awakening the Cardiff County Council to its duty in the matter, we say more power to their elbow." We hope they will strike bard and strike home, and anything we can do to make their blows effective we will most gladly undertake.— Western Mail.
ANNIE MACKAY AGAIN HAS AUDIENCE OF THE PENARTH MAGISTRATES. SHE THINKS THE POLICE OUGHT TO BE TAUGHT CIVILITY. Annie Mackay, a married woman of distinctly Scotch descent, a familiar figure at Penarth Police-court, had another audience of Messrs J. Duncan and P. Morel at the local court on Monday last, being charged by P.C. 30 with her customary offence of being drunk and disorderly at Penarth on the 18th instant. The constable's evidence having been taken, defendant made a pathetic appeal to the Bench, stating it appeared to her that her husband paid the police to dog her foot- steps, for whenever she left the house she was surrounded and attacked by constables. (Laughter.) The policeman who spoke to her on this occasion treated her very rudely, and she thought it would be well to send the police back to school to learn a little civility. (Renewed laughter.) She was accused of being drunk, but she was certain the members of the police force and others present in court put by more drink than she did, and yet they never got summoned. (More laughter.)-Fined 5s, or three days.
EXCITING EXPERIENCE OF YACHTERS AT PENARTH. During the boat race between the members of the Penarth Boating Club on Saturday afternoon last, a squall from Penarth Head swept across the Channel, and the five competing yachts had an exciting experience. Mr Ashford was in the van, and in a trice was prepared for it. His example was imitated by the others, but two or three had their canvas blown literally into rags when struck by the squall. Considerable excitement was shown by those on the beach, as the boats could only be discernible v/ith the glass, and if was feared there would be an accident, if not a fatality. The Iona was fortunately in attendance, but even she had a rough time of it. The race was postponed, and under flying jib only could the various yachts attempt to return.
MYSTERIOUS THEFT AT DINAS POWIS RAILWAY STATION. THE CHAIRMAN OF TIIE BARRY MAGIS- TRATES ROBBED. Mr O. H. Jones, J.P., Fonmon Castle, the chair- man of the Cardiff Board of Guardians, was the victim of an extraordinary theft on Saturday last. Mr Jones was travelling homewards on the Barry Railway from Cardiff, when he left a hand-bag, containing, amongst other articles, a cash-book, in charge of a porter at Dinas Powis Station. When the bag was called for, it was found to be missing, together with its contents, and up to Monday afternoon it could not be traced. The mystery is being inquired into by Police-constable Boulton and other local police.

WESLEYAN METHODISM IN THE CARDIFF AND SWANSEA DISTRICT. The annual session of the Wesleyan Methodist synod in the above district has just been held at Newport. The late Rev P. Neville Andrews, Swansea, chairman of the district, presided. Rev W. H. Clogg was elected secretary, and the Rev H. Graham Payn, Barry, assistant secretary. All the ministers of the district were present except Revs J. B. Blanch and J. A. Jones, supernumeraries, to whom dispensations were granted. During the transaction of the financial business nearly all the lay members were present, amongst them being Mr John Lowdon, J.P., and Mr James J. Moon. Barry. Questions relating to the character and work of the ministers were satisfactorily answered. One minister had died during the year, the Rev E. Bowman. He entered the ministry in 1867, and for some time rendered efficient service but had to retire from active work through ill- health. After much suffering he passed peacefully away. The net increase of members in the district is 269, after making up the losses by removal and ieath, with 860 on trial. There is also an increase of 74 junior members. A very interesting con- versation on the work of God followed the reading of these figures. In many of the circuits gracious revivals have been witnessed, including Neath and Sower, where remarkable conversions have taken place. At Taibach, in the former circuit, the jhapel was open every night for eleven weeks in succession. Intense interest was awakened, in iome cases whole families were saved, and some of the roughest characters changed. The district svangelist, Mr Raymond Preston, has had a very successful year. He has visited many of the circuits in the district, and his efforts have been í specially blessed in such centres of population is Pontypridd, Rhondda, Brynmawr, and Ttedegar. At the first-named place the enthusiasm was so great that the chapel was over-crowded night after night. Special accommodation was provided by the erection of a tent all round the chapel, enabling the people to hear the evangelist's voice through the open windows of the building. Mr Preston is re-visiting Pontypridd for three weeks. On Sunday, June 24, he will commence a mission a.t the Wesleyan Chapel, Barry. Much good is anticipated from the visit of this God-honoured evangelist. In connection with the aggressive work of this district, a Bible Carriage has been rm the move for one year, and during this time has rendered valuable aid to evangelistic work by the sale of Bibles, hymn-books (in English and Welsh), ind pure literature generally. The colporteurs in charge have conducted open-air and other services [n the towns and villages where they have halted. [t was reported that in several circuits, to assist local preachers, more especially juniors, in their work, a great deal is done by homiletical classes, meetings for the reading and discussion of ap- propriate papers, loan of books, and pastoral advice M to study and preaching. The Rev J. D. Stevens presented the report of the examinations and reading of young ministers on probation, and it was considered eminently satisfactory in each case. Five of the probationers have secured a place in the honours' list. The Revs T. N. Ritson, G. W. Kettleborough, R. Whitehead, A. E. Butler, and S. Whitaker were unanimously recommended for ordination. Two candidates for the ministry were passed on to the July committee-Mr T. Stevinson, of Pontypridd, and Mr O. I. Letcher, of Swansea. It was resolved to send suggestions to conference In reference to the transfer members, with a view bo prevent the enormous leakage resulting from members changing their residence; also to seek bhe modification of clause xi. of the deed poll in order to leave the conference free to exercise its iiscretion as to the term of the appointment of ministers, and to retain a seat in the quarterly meetings for ex-circuit stewards three years after leaving office. A large and influential committee was appointed to consider the demand for aa im- mediate special aggressive movement among the rapidly-growing population of the western valleys ind other parts of Monmouthshire and South Wales.
goctrg. BE KIND TO THE LITTLE ONES. Be kind to the little ones while they are young, Lead where fields and flowers are all in their best, Where you hear the glad shout and glib prattling tongue 'Mongst the fringe-hanging ferns or daisy slopes dressed, Point them to the beauties of nature around, And tell them of nature's God, Who all has given, And although the earth decked in rich grandeur is found, It is not to compare with the beauties of Heaven. Be kind to the little ones while in your power, For life here is only a troublesome dream Lead in pleasant pathways by both field and shore, By flower growing valley, by woodland and stream. Your castles and towers built among the sea sands, The first flowing tide will soon wash all away, But that happy group who sat watching your hands Will keep in their memory the work of the day, Be kind to the little ones and seek out their haunts, Lead them onward and upward the path of the just. Bless them with comforts, supply all their wants, Reap the promise by doing so-you will be blest. Forget all the wrongs they have done in the past, Treat them all as your own in kindness and love; Their footprints in the snow may melt away fast, But not from their memory the little you give. Be kind to the little ones under your care, You know not the day they may leave you alone, Then let them your kindness and sympathy share, It will banish regret and remorse when they're gone. When their once rosy cheeks grow more pale day by day, And the little pale form is racked with pain, You see that your loved one is passing away, But memory that pale face will ever retain. Be kind to the little ones, help while you can, Their sweet smile of thanks will be ample repay It is better to give them the flowers from your hand Than strew them on coffin lids when they're away Lead them the footsteps our great Leader trod, To lead and to guide them to you they were given. Train them before they are under the sod, They'll be the first that will meet you in Heaven. MAC.

Morgan and H. Morgan. Runs were put o* rapidly, but with the score standing at i3 Brain was taken at the wicket by Llewellyn. J. G. Clark followed in, I and again the bowling of the Penarth men was com- pletely collared. Despite changes in the bowling, both batsmen hit out freely, and the score had been carried to 101 ere Clark was caught by English for a capitally-compded 30. W. H. Brain came next, but shortly afterwards a heavy shower drove the players shortly afterwards a heavy shower drove the players to the pavilion.

The Clerk read a letter from Mr Williams, water works engineer, stating that in connection with the laying of new mains in the district y Lord Bute had not given consent, but the matter would receive consideration. TJIU TULL-I;ATE QUESTION. Mr W. B. Shepherd called the committee's attention to a letter in the Press, with refer- ence to the Penarth toll gate, in which ife stated Mr Harpur, the borough engineer, bad said the Cardiff Corporation were not liable for the removal of the toll-gate. He (the chairman^ thought Mr Harpur had been incorrectly reported. The Cardiff Corporation received benefit from the gate, as they already took 70 to 75 per cent., and this money was used by them for maintaining roads within the borough. It was the only toll- gate in Glamogan, and he (Mr Shepherd) -w" of opinion it should be done away with.— Mr T. Bevan did not think the board should meeU- the expense of its removal.—Mr Shepherd re- marked some definite stoep should be taken at the next board meeting.—Mr Pile considered it would be a good idea if committees of the Penfinh and- Barry Local Boards and Dinas Powis Highway Board combined, and took joint action in tho- matter.—Mr R. Bevan concurred with Mr Pile. PROPOSED SWUIMLVi CLUB AT PENARTJT. Mr T. Bevan informed the committee that; roru* gentlemen in the town wished to form a swimming club, and desired to know if the board would grant them the same facilities as extended to the Newport swimming club, viz., a book of one dozen admission tickets to the baths fo" three shillings, and be allowed to promote entertain- ments, &c.—Mr W. L. Morris thought it W8>! th& duty of the board to yrant the request: aud it. was decided to defer the question till the ne>» meeting of the board. THE RECREATION COMMITTEE. Mr R. Bevan asked when the above committee was likely to meet, for if there was no alteration, in the present master he would have to agitate for the appointment of afresh committee.—No dis- cussion followed.
