LOCAL TOPICS. WATER AND THE WEATHER. We weie about to call the attention of our local authorities to the dusty condition of the Abernant-road, and to suggest that, as the water carts were ordered to baptise the road to the park, it would not be a bad thing did they w.ande.r in the other direction for the benetit of foot passengers. However, the weather has just, for the present, upset our notion of things, and the road in question has been watered from on high to a tune which we little expected. We do not grumble at the weather, that were un- gnttylul us well as foolish. We are only thank- tui that the SPUSOU is so well suited, for those who are cunning in agriculture tell us that they -c 'u.d not have got better treatment from the elements, even if they bad had their choice. The wind, the rain, and the sun, have conspired toge^iier to pre/aoe fur us a bountiful summer ea-ly evidences of which are seen on the fields, and among the tiees oven at the present time. PLAYIXG BALL. To the youths immediately interested, it may seem hard that they should be brought up before the local Bench last Tuesday, and fined for playing the innocent game of ball in the public streets. On the face of it anyone would admit that the lads might have done much worse, for the question arises as to whether it was worth whiie to bring them into a police court or not for such a trivial offence against the law. It is hardly proper to look at the question in this light." although, after all, it seems but a slender accusation to charge the boys with creating a nuisance. However, if this were allowed it would only prove a loophole foi gravei offences, and after all there is nothing like enforcing the principles of law and order. THE; VOLUNTEERS. As the favourable weather comes on, the local defenders of our native shores, who have decided, should their country require them, to leave homes and friends to die for the weal of the commonwealth, find more favourable op- portunities for the practice and display of their martial abilities, led on by their truly martial band, and with stern determination depicted on every brow they fall in," and shoulder to shoulder march to -drill. The field between the river and the G. W. Railway line presents a pleasant background in its spring green for the red coats of our daring soldiery. There are those unfledged ones who have' not, as yet, cast off the chrysalis civilian clothing for the uniform of the full private they carry their rifles and square their shoulders with such soldierlike spirit, that you can almost overlook the great requirement, dress. By the way, the officers of the corps may be congratulated on the fact that recruits still come forward, and such well built study men, too, that would not disgrace a regiment of the line. Some of these days we shall have a fine body of volunteers in Aberdare, such a batch, in fact, that will be able to com- pete with others in the general race after ultra- efficiency. We are glad to note that the new men shewed so well at Hirwain last Tuesday afternoon in a competition, privately got up in the corps. Four old hands" were picked against four new men to fire seven rounds each, at 200 and 500 yards. The result was-old hands, 164 new men, 162, only two behind. We understand that the energetic officers, who have taken such interest in the corps, have decided upon starting a new company. We hope they will succeed, and if the new men, who took part in the shooting of Tuesday last, are fair samples of those who are to follow we have little fear as to the result. THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL. The inhabitants of Aberdare will await with c msiderable interest the first symtoms of life shewn by the committee appointed to superin- t<nl the work of conversion. Some good men nd true are ircluded in this body of gentlemen; 1 ut how or why, or by what process these par- t cular individuals were chosen, we are at a loss t) comprehend. There are those so appointed, however, in whose common sense and single motive for the thorough carrying out of the work before them, we have every faith, and can, the efore, await the results of their labours with confidence and in pleasant expectation. We should like to know a little more, however, as to the way in which such committees are made up, and en passant, how the name of the b igh-constable of Aberdare came to be excluded fom the present list, especially considering (first) that that gentlemrll is a Guardian, and (seco idly) that the question at issue is one of g eat moment to Aberdare, in particular. MORE DEATHS. Not long ago it was our mournful duty to re- cord the deaths of two or three old inhabitants of Aberdare-the Rev Father Limpens, Mr 1. D. Rees, registrar of the County Court, and Mr Jno. Morris, Mill Street. We have uow to add to the list the names of no less than four well known and highly respected townsmen who have followed each other in singularly rapid succession to the unknown land. On the 12th inst. Mr Jenkin Rees, of the Cwm, laid down his life's burden at the ripe old age of 75 years Mr J. W. Jones well-known, for his public services in connection with the Aberdare Local Board of Health, Board of Guardians, &c., fol- lowed on Sunday last, at the comparatively early age of 46 years Mr Thomas Dyke, father of Mr W. Dyke, of the Boot Hotel, of Mr Thomas Dyke, Bush Inn, and of Mrs Jones, of the Cambrian Inn, succumbed on Monday last, aged 74 years; and last on the list comes Mr Thomas Chivers, at one time owner of a foundry in Mill Street, who had also reached the term of man's life, 70 years. It is seldom that such a mortality occurs in a place of the population of Aberdare parish, among a circle of well know men. Some say that the late severe weather has had some- thing to do with it, and that the biting winds which we have had have sopped the failing sup- ports of life in several of these instances just as they have nipped the newly born buds on the trees. However this may be, we still have the reflection that a time is coming for us all, and that the vessel may go often to the fountain, but a time is approaching when it will never return again. TxliJi -DUAJVU »UAVXiIUXV, It is with mingled feelings that we draw the attention of our readers to the proposition of the Chairman of the Local Board, as reported in our columns this week. Mr. Roddam C. Hall has been the Surveyor of Aberdare parish for a period of 20 years, and now the time seems to have arrived, when some sort of an effort should be made to acknowledge the value of his past services. Had Mr Hall served the Queen for a like period with similar ability, and a like dis- play of talent, he would have been able to retire on something like a suitable pension but this is not allowed with regard to Local Government Officials. Accoiding to the laws of this country a man may devote the best years of his life to the benefit of a particular community, and work with undiminished ardour all the time, although he be a trusted servant, upon whom there cannot be an infallible check. He may go out of the ordinary groove of his profession, and make it his life's business to do good to the parish in which he labours — and the reward giyea and provided for all this is nothing. Further than this, Mr Hall, through an in- herent modesty, has allowed his work to increase, and the arduous nature of his task to become intensified without demanding from the Board that additional remuneration to which he, of course, became entitled. Our readers will therefore be willing to endorse, even as rate- payers, the insinuations contained in Mr Rhys's observations to the effect that the Surveyor, who is now beginning to feel the inevitable effects of age and hard work, has a two-fold claim on the Board. We must refer for full particulars to our report, but just wish to say here that we agree in the heartiest manner possible with the action decided upon by our representatives on the Board of Health.
TABERNACLE CHURCH.—The nineteenth anni- versary services in connection with the above church are announced to take place on Sunday next, when the Rev. Dr. Mac Auslane, of Lon- don, will officiate. M. GOMPERTZ'S DIORAMA.—This well-known caterer for the amusement of the public, will exhibit his magnificent diorama, representing a tour from London to St. Petersburgh, in the Temperance* Hall, in this town, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings next. A talented company of musicians will appear each evening. Particulars will be found in another ( olumn. SCIIOOL BOARD.-The fortnightly meeting was he'd on Thursday, when there were present —Messrs. J. Lewis (chairman), R. H Rhys, J. Williams, and Dr. Price. A letter was read from the Education Department in reference to the Abernant School, to which the Clerk was directed to reply. The following report of H.M.'s Inspector in reference to the Town Schools was raad — Boys' School: The thoroughly good examination which this department has passed is the more creditable as the schools had been open only seven months the singing also of the boys and girls united is really pleasing. The discipline, drill, and general tone are exceeingly good; I must con- gratulate the School Board on the completion of these magnificent new premices. Girls' School: The girls have passed a fair examination consi- dering it is a new school, but arithmetic is weak in the second, third, and fifth standards. The discipline and general tone are good, and a good beginning has been made with the needlework. Infants' School: The attainments are not at pre- sent more than moderately fair, except in the first class where they are fair, though arithmetip 14 weak there also; but the achool is new, <<nd I hope Miss Evans (who has done so well in her previous school under my inspection) will ere another year is over have worked up the infants into a really good school. The galleries might be improved t, in some details, which I pointed out. I do not think the plan of employing two assistant teachers and only one pupil teacher is at all advisable in an infants' department." The grant amounted to S175 7s. The chafrman i remarked that the report was highly creditable to Mr. and Mrs. Neville. At the suggestion of the chairman, it was resolved henceforth to call the Aberdare British Schoels the" Aber- dare Park Schools." A letter was read from Mr. Lewis, the new master, complaining of the wanton destruction of the windows, no less than 60 panes of glass being broken when be entered upon his duties. Three boys caught in the act of breaking the school windows ap- peared before the Board and were severely repri-. manded. Mr. J. Johns and Mr. D. Davies, Cardiff-street, attended the Board and handed over the deeds,^&c., thus completing the trans- fer of the schools to the Board. ABERDARE SKATING RIJIK.—Our readers will be glad to hear that the concession for Plimton's Patent Skates has been taken for Aberdare, and that a site for the Skating Rink has been taken at Tudor Phc near the Old Gr.8 Works. It is intended to be ready in the course of a month. LOCAL PETITIONS IN PARLIAMENT. — In the House of Commons, on Monday night, petitions in favour of the Employers'Liability for Injuries to Workmen Bill were presented by Mr Macdpnald (18) from meetings at tha Allen Arms, Mountain Ash Bush Inn, Cwmbran, Newport Caerphilly and Aberdare; also from inhabitants of Caer- philly, Bedwas, and other places in the counties of Monmouth and Glamorgan and by Mr Reed, fri m Pembroke Dock. IMPUDENT ROBBERIES.—At the Mertbyrpolioe-I sourt, on Menday merning (before Mr A. de Rutz^n, Dr. Davies, and Dr. Probert), Edward Davies, labourer, of Cwmbach, was charged with stealing a yard and a half of Witney cloth and six yards of pilot cloth, value £3 His 6d, the property of Elizabeth George. It appear d from the evidence that on Saturday night the prisoner entered the prosecutrix's t-hop, in High-street, Aberdare, picked up the cloth, which was in a bundle on the counter, and left. Mrs George followed him, and caught hold of him. There was a struggle, and piisoner struck her twice. P.O. Cox wa" called to the spot and took prisoner into custody. Mr de Rutzen remarked that Mrs George bad acted uncommouly well, and if there vvtre more lad it s like her, they would be able to do without policemen. Prisoner was further charged with stealing a waistcoat, value lOs, the pro- perty of Mr Edward Dance, of the Star and Rail- way Inn, Aberdare. The waistcoat was iianging on a line in the gard.n, but was missed, and after- wards prisoner offered it for sale at the New Inn. The landlord, advised his customers not to l'uy it, and information was given to the police. Prisoner was committed for trial on both charges. THE FRIENDLY SOCIETIES' ACT.-An influential meeting of Secretaries, belonging to the different Friendly Societies of the Aberdare Valley, was held at the Cardiff Castle Hotel, Aberdare, on Thursday evening, May 18th. The meeting had been called through the local Press, but the originators of the movement did not put in an appearance, consequently, those who attended were, to a certain degree, ignorant of the ohj ct of the meeting. However, Mr R. Wigley, Tre- cynon, was voted to the chair, and E. Owen, Aberaman, was elected secretary of the meeting, hnd the Friendly Societies' Act came under con- sideration. Those assembled complained most bitterly of the enormous amount of extra work put upon the secretaries of lodges by the new Act, and a resolution was passed to make an ap- peal to the lodges for some remuneration for thtir labour. Some capital speeches were made by the Chairman, Mr J. Thomas, D.S. of the Ancient Order ot Foresters, Messrs D. R. Lewis, Aberdare; Thos. Jones, and Dan Hughes, Aberaman, and others. Certain provisions were ably expounded and commented upon in a very creditable manner by the above-named brethren and others, whose names we were unable to obtain. The following resolutions, amongst others, were carried unani- mou^y:—That this meeting, after taking into consideration the large amount of extra work laid upon the secretaries of different societies, by the rl c nt Act of Parliament; desires to make a humble appeal to the various lodges to grant some remuneration to their respective secretaries for fi ling up th Registrar's Quinquennial Return Shiets." I That another meeting of secretaries be held in the course of three:months, the time to be fixed by the chairman and secretary of this meeting." That a report of the proceedings of this meeting be sent for publication to the ABER- DARE TIMES, Tarian y Gweithiwr, and Gwlad- garwr newspapers." A vote of thanks to the chairman and Secretary brought the proceedings to a close.
ARERDARE LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. The ordinary fortnightly meeting was held on Thursday, when there were present—Messrs R. H. RhjB (chairman), D. E.Williams, I. Thomas, W. Thomas, LI. Llewelyn, F. Phillips, J. Snape, W. Davies, and the Rev Dr Price. The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed. RVSPKCTOR'S REPORT. The Inspector of Nuisances reported four fresh cases of scarlet fever during the last fortnight, being a decrease of one as compared with the previous fortnight, but no death. Euteric fever had disappeared. He recommended the Board to put a stop to the drowning of dogs in the river. He noticed the c ireases of three large dogs in the Cynon, near some dwelling-houses, and the srench was very offensive. Dr Price remarked that he would rather see the dogs in the river than running about the streets. Mr 1. Thomas remarked that people were in the habit of throwing all manner of things into the river, and creating a nuisance. The Chairman said the same thing occurred in every river. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The Surveyor reported that he had in company with Mr Lloyd, Aberaman, examined the drain in Lewis-street between Reddoe-street and Mount- street, and found the sai.) drain detective to carry off the rainfall which is the cause of the nuisance. He recommended that a sower be constructed to extend from Beddoe-street to Mount-street, which would abate the nuisance. II? had also examined the various properties from 67 to 83, Wind-street, ai reported by the "inspector of JNUIO»L1c8S' and found the came of the nuisance was owing to the stnK!ug Of the ground and the slop water became stagnant. He re- commended that a sewer be constructed to carry away the nuisance. He also laid before the board a plan and estimate of a bridge proposed to be erected over the river Cynon at Robert's Town, amounting to £ 191 15s Id. He recommended that the following building plans be passed Evan Williams, 42, Commercial- street, Mountain Ash, six houses at Brook-place, Abergwawr, Aberdare. D. W. Jayne, 314, Cardiff-road, additions at the back of 89 Cardiff- road to build a store-room. Rees Evans, Post Office, Cwmainan, a paint shed adjoining No. 1, Dinas place, Fforchaman road. He recommended that the following plan be re- fused Michael Thomas, 6, High-place, Monk- street, Aberdare, until he gives a guarantee to have the flagging, kerb, and channel, laid down. He also reported that .he had received notice from Mr Llewellyn not to-deposit any more ashes in the depot at Aberaman by the Scavenger for No.3 Division. GADLYS BRIDGE. Mr W. Davies thought an iron bridge might be constructed for the amount named by the Sur- veyor. Air Snape was also of opinion that if f200 were to be spent, it would be far better to have an iron bridge erected. The Chairman said a 60 feet iron bridge, similar to the one at Nanthir reservoir, could be obtained for £ 150. He expected shortly to have an interview with Mr Roberts, and he would en- deavour to get him to give £ 50 or 960 towards the cost. An iron bridge would last for genera- tions. Robert's Town was a populous place, without any means of access, and a good bridge was much needed. The matter was allowed to stand over to enable the Chairman to coaimunicate with Mr Roberts on the subject. THE SCAVENGINQ. i Mr Snape complained of the manner in which the scavenging was being done at Fforchaman, stating that ashes were to be found all over tbe plaoe, aad accumulations bad existed for months. NEW BRIDGE. A letter was read from th« Agent of Lord Windsor, stating that there would be no objection to the erection of the over the Cynon between Llwydcroed 4n4 Pepywaiu. TENDERS FOR GRAZING. Four tenders were received for the grazing and pasturage of the recreation ground, the highest from Mr J. Hek, jun., 930 2s 6d.; and the lowest £21. Mr Hek's tender was accepted. THE WATER PIPES. A lettw was read from Mrs M Richards, Market Tavern, claiming £3 for damage done through the bursting of a main wat r pipe near her premises. The Chairman She will have to wait a long time before she gtq it. Mr D. E. Williams thought it had burst in the best place—opposite a tavern. ALLEGED TAMPERING WITH A VOTING PAPER. The Clerk reported upon tha voting paper alleged to have been filled up without the know- ledge or consent of the owner, John Edwards, Tramway-road, Hirwain. He found that the paper contained a memorandum to the effect that it had not been filled by Mr Edwards. The witness to the mark was David Jenkins. The Chairman thought it a clear case of fabri- cation, and that John Edwards should be asked to attend if he wished the Board to take any action in the matter. Mr W. Davies suggested that the witness, David Jenkins, should also attend. THE SURVEYOKSHIP. The Chairman remarked that at the last meet- ing he gave notice that he should bring forward the question of making some change with regard to the Surveyor of the Board, in cona quence of Mr Hugh Williams (the assistant surveyor) having given in his resignation. Mr Williams had accepted the position of draftsman under the Merthyr Board. It was in fact well known to them for some time past that Mr Hall had been in very indifferent health, and that the work was not carried out with the energy that it ought to be. Besides, the district was getting a very important one. They had expended £82,000 on water works, which would require the attention of some competent person and again the drainage of the parish was inevitable, and something must be done during the next twelvemonths at least. Under the circumstances, he had come to the con- clusion that the best course to adopt would be to elect a competent person as Surveyor to the Board, who would undertake all the duties and advise the Board upon all matters that might arise. For the last twenty years they had had the services of Mr Hall, who had discharged his duties veTy faithfully and very honestly. His health, howtver, was now very much broken, but he was still anxious to remain in the service of the Board. Mr Hall never received more than X150 a year, although, had he applied some ten y. ars ago, in all probability his salary would have been mere: sed. Several of the members thought he had been underpaid. What he would suggest was, Mr 'Hall having served the parish so well. and at so ^low a salary, that they should still con- tinue him in their service, to look after building plans and assist the Surveyor in every way, and allow him to retain his salary so long as ne was able to compensate the Board for such salary He (the chairman) did not think they could hope to have a .man such as they required under L300 a year, brcause they bad no perquisites or any privileges to offer. He proposed that the Sur- veyor should have no private practice, but should give his whole time to the Board. The only point for consid eration was whether the amount was sufficient to induce a good man to accept the position, -unless it was on the understanding that his salary weuld be increased. He (the chair- man) wou Id like to hear the general opinion of the Board on the subject before he should make a motion.. For many years past he had been discharging the duties of the Surveyor to a great extent; fi nd he had had to do a great deal, more perhaps than the Board were aware-he was sure, more than any other chairman had done; but he was now getting an old man, and con- sequently would not be able to do so much. He would tht refore like to hear what they had to say. Mr W. Thomas thought, as Mr Hall had been underpaid, for so many years, they should take that into consideration, and continue his services. Mr W- Davies also expressed a similar view. This wasr getting an important district, and what with the "watt r works and main drainage there would ba much w rk to do. Dr. Pri ce, Mr F. Phillips, and Mr LI. Llewelyn also concurred with the chairman's remarks. The latter considered that £300 would be an ample sum to oiler. The Chairman then moved the following re- salution —"The health of the Surveyor having for some till Ie past been failing, and his assistant having s« nt in his registration, it is expedient that a competent Surveyor be obtained to take charge of the interests of this district, now that the water works are completed and the drainage of the district will shortly have to be proceeded with." This was secondrd by Mr Llewelyn and agreed to The Chairman afterwards moved that advertise- ments be issued inviting candidates for the office of surveyor. THE DRAINAGE QUESTION. The Chairman said he had intended to bring forward the question of drainage, but he would postpone- it for the present. WATER FOR CWMAMAN. Mr Llewelyn gave netice that he should draw attentioo at the next meeting to the desirability ol extending the water pipes to Cwmamen, and sup. C, ply the place with hater. The Board then separated.
ABERDARE POLICE COURT. Tuesday—(Before A. de Rutzen and R. H. Rhys, Esqs.) ALLEGED IXTOXICATION. — Job Morgm and Stephen Davies, carpenters, were charged with being drunk and riotous in Commercial-street, Mountain Ash, on the 10th inst. P.C. Emanuel aaw them at a quarter past 11 o'clock on the night in question, in Commercial-street, drunk, shouting and creating a disturbance in the street. P.C. Williams also stated that he saw both defendants walking up the street, staggering drunk and cursing and swearing. They had come from the Cresselly Inn, where they had been drinking for two hours. The defendants, who stoutly denied being drunk, called two witness, one being the wife of Davies, and the other the sister of Morgan, both of whom said the defendants were quite suber. The Bench considered there was sufficient doubt in the case to justify them in dismissing the summons. DRUNKENNESS. —Thomas Morgan, was charged with being drunk on the 13th inst., in Ffrwd- crescentj Mountain Ash. P.C. Emanuel proved seeing him Very drunk and challenging to ft.in, « ]aI3e crowcl of people around. He hid some difficulty in getting tn. defendant, to 1 ave Defendant, who admitted the offencp, was fined 2s 6d and costs only, this being his first appearance.-John Rees was charged with a similar offence. He was found on the previous night lying in Cardiff street helplessly drunk, and he was carried to the station. The Bench in con- sideration of his being locked up for several hours discharged him with a caution.—Thos. Williams, collier, was charged with a similar offence. P.C. Parker found him at half-past 10 o'clock on Sunday night lying down in High-street quite drunk. He gave his address as No. 4, Cardiff- street, Aberdare, but witness found upon enquiry that he lived at Aberaman or Cwmaman. He was brought to the. station. There being a previous conviction, he was fined 5s and costs, or seven days in default.- David Williams, charged with being drunk on the 15th May, in Commer- cial-street, was cautioned and discharged, nothing being known against him before. TRANSFERS—This being the annual transfer day, the io lowing licenses were transferred Penlan beerhouse, Aberaman, from D inl. Jenkins to Thomas Woodford Globe Inn, to Mary Jones Oak Inn, to Thomas Fan-ow; Farmer's Arms, to Daniel Hopkins; Park View, to David Williams; Fox and Houds, DulUs, to Rees Jones; Plymouth Arms, Mill street, to Wm. Williams Plasteerer's Arms, to David Williams Royal Exchange, to Henry Phelps; Prince Llewellyn, to David Lloyd; Britannia, Roberts' Town, to Evan Davies; 63, Oxford-street, Mountain Ash, to John Reynolds; Allen's Arms, Mountain Ash, to Thomas Evans. STEALING k SACK.—Elizabeth Harris appeared on remand charged wit!: stealing a saok, the pro- perty of Messrs Davies and Evans, Corn and Hay Merchants, of this town. Mr Phillips appeared in defence. Tbe deposit! 8 taken at the former hearing having been read, Mr Davies was cross- examined by Mr Phillips He admitted that the sack might have been stolen any time during the last four years, It was a common thing for tradesmen's sacks to get mixed up. They did not sell sacks or charge them to customers, Mr Phillips, in defence, submitted that inasmuch as the sack miaht bave been lost four years' ago the presumption of its having been stolen was very light, and the mere possession of the sack was not sufficient proof of its having been stolen. The prisoner said she bought the s$ck ef Mr Harris, grocer, Aberaman, and Mr Davies fairly admitted that sacks did get mixed up, and consequently the sack in question might have got into her possession, innocently. Na attempt had been made to tamper with the mark and it was brought through ti,e public streets and taken to the railway station, clearly showing she had no iutention of concealing it. The account she gave of its possession was corroborated to a certain extent. Persons taken into custody might from tear give a wrong ac- count of what actually transpired. He asked that the prisoner should receive the benefit of any doubt that existed in the minds of the Bench, and that she might be discharged. Mr de Rutzen I think it is a case for a jury. If she said nothing, there would have been no case against her. She says she got this sack in August last. Prisoner expressed a wish 10 have the case deposed of summarily. She denied having stolen the sack. 0 Mr Phillips asked the Bench to consider the prisoner a age in whatever decision they arrived at. She was close upon 60. The Bench con- sidered the prisoner had acted wisely in electing to be tried there. It was perfectly true that the prosecutors let their sacks go out, and they were used for all sorts of purposes, but eventually they were returned. In this case the sack was found full of things on its way to Wigan, and the prisoner gave an account of its possession which turned cut to be not perpectly correct. It was very likely that if some person had not seen the sack it would have been taken to Wigan, and Mr Davies would never have seen it again. She was sentenced to seven days' imprisonment. TRESPASS.—John Bennett, Daniel Doyle, James Jones, and John Davies, all javeniles, were charged with damaging grags, the property of Messrs Davis, of Blaengwawr. P.S. Evans saw them about eight o'clock, the 8th inst., in a field laid out for hay at Blaengwawr. They crossed over three fences. Much damage was being done by trespassers. They were fined Is, together with 3d. damage, and costs, amounting to 48 I id each. BALL PLAYING IN THE STREET. — George Weaver, Timothy Gery, Charles Ham, and Edward Hamlet, lads, were charged with playing ball in Glo'ster-street, on the 3rd inst. Mr Gsry prosecuted on behalf of the Board of Heal h. P.C. Rees proved seeing the defendants at five o'clock on the evening in question playing ball against the front of a house in Glo'ster-street. They were obstructing the pavement, and pre- venting people from passing—in fact several had to turn back and go aoother way. The ball was in india-rubber one and would not break the I windows. One of the boys alleged that he did not play. Witness said he was certain he did. fhe Bench remarked that ball playing although not dangerous in itself was a nuisance to people passing by, and the worst of it was that boys would not stop when people passed by. Timothy Gery being a very small boy was discharged. Another boy denied that he was there, but the Bench eould not believe a policeman would swear what was not true. They were each fined 3d and the cost of the summons. GOOD ADVICE To AMERICANS.—John Davies, a young man of respectable appearance, was charged with wantoning firing a pistol on the highway. P.C. Williams deposed that he saw the d-fendant between Mountain Ash and Cap Coch. An old man coming down the road complained that it was dangerous to pass by Bruce's crossing, that boys were shooting. He (witness) heard tome shots fired, and on overtaking the defendant he asked him if he bad any firearms about him. Defendant said "No." He searched him and found a revolver upon him which had just been discharged. Defendant then admitted the offence, remarking that he had only arrived from America the night before, and he did not think it any harm. In defence, defendant made a similar statement Mr de Rutzen said it would be a good thing if people coming from America would leave such weapons behind them. The English law did not permit the use of firearms in the highway. It was not only dangerous but very absurd to carry firearms, beoause clirre was no use for tbem. He hoped the defendant would know better in future. He was then ordered to pay the costs only, viz., 3s 2d. STRANGE AFFILIATION CASE.—David Evans Morse, a h ardless youth of 19, was charged with being the father of the illegitimate child 01 Martha Owen, a widow living at Mill-street, who give her age as 35, but who appeared to be at least 40 The court contained a number of young women, and his Worship previous to the hearing of the case very properly ordered the court to be oleared of such, remarking that he was sorry to disappoint so many young girls, but the sooner they left the better. It appeared from the evidence of Iwm- plain lint that the child was born on the 18th .vlarch last. Defendant lived with his mother some five doors off and he used frequently to visit her house. She had three children besides by her husband. Several witnesses were called, and the Bench made an order for the payment of 2.6d a week and costs.
RHONDDA VALLEY. PRESENTATION.—On Saturday evening last, an interesting and unmerou^ly-attended meeting was heldjat the Treherbert Public Hall, thj object of which was the presentation of a handsome testimonial to Mr T. G. Davies, late manager of the North and South Dunraven Collieriea, by the workmen and frends in this neighbourhood, and that of his native place-Maesteg. Mr Davies came to this neighbourhood some 14 years ago to be mineral surveyor at the Dunraven Colliery. Ere long he was promoted to be the manager of the colli ry, and afterwards of the South Dunraven Colliery also. During his residence here Mr Davies, through his many commend We quali i s, gained the esteem and respect of all he came in contraet with. Last January he resigned the management of these collieries, and when it be- came known that this was about to take place, a movement was set on foot to present him with a suitable testimonial as a token of the high esteem in which he was held. The meeting was presided over by MrT. Curnew, Bute Merthyr Colliery. Messrs Howel Davies, M. Llewellyn, M. O. Jones, F. B. Wilmer (Bwllfa), and several workmen addressed the meeting, all speaking in eulogistic terms of Mr Davies. The articles were presented by some of the oldest workmen—the watch and chain by Mr W. Llewellyn, Maesteg; the ring by Mrs Clarke, Dunraven; the walking stick by Mr H. Morgan, Mr Davies returned his sincere thanks in a short and suitable speech. The proceedings were enlivened with Music. The Libanus string band played two overtures. Messrs J. Howells (Perdonydd y Duffryn), W. Y. Davies, Maesteg, D. Davies, M. Hewellwn, D. Lloyd sang songs, and two glees were sung by the Blaenewm party. Miss Bell Morgan, Miss Jones, Risoa, and Mr Howells acted as accompanists. The testimonial consisted of the following valuable Li article?—Theodolite, levei, eidogramh, gold watch and chain, and a beautifully illuminated address in Welsh and English, presented by the workmen and his friends at Maesteg. A valuable diamond ring and a silver-mounted ivory-handled walking stick, presented by his friends at Treherbert. The total value of these aoticles is over .St30 The address was elegantly framed. Mr Davies leaves this place to take a responsible post at Bristol. SAVAGE ASSAULT ON A WOMEN.-At the weekly petty-sessions held on Monday, before Mr Gwilyn Williams, Mary Ann Attwell, Llwynpia, summoned Henry Tudball, Llwynpia, for assaulting her last Saturday evening. From the evidence it appears that the prosecutrix and her husband came home from Tonypandy about ten o'clock last Saturday night, and found the defendant who lieves in the same house, standing by the door very drunk. His wife had run out, as she alway does when her husband comes home drunk, she being afraid of him. The prosecutrix endeavoured to persuade him to go to bed and to pacify him, but was unable to do so, He abused her for speaking to him. She went to the house, and had cause to go to defendant's room for an earring which she had dropped. When searching for it she received from him a violent blow on the side of her face, knocking two of her teeth out, loosening another, and otherwise injuring her. He smashed a chair while beating her. Her husband came to fetch his wife away and was knocked down. The prosecutrix had bruises on different parts of her body from the assault. P.S. Thomas said he was called to the defendant's house at 11 o'clook on Saturday night. He found about 100 people outside. He md the defendant on the door. He was stripped naked except his trousers and stock- ings. Witness asked hiw what was the matter, to which he replied that it was all right; he did not want a policeman in his house, and that he was constable there." He went in and found the prosecutrix sitting down in the chatr in a faiuting state. He examined her and found a wound on the side of her face, two of her teeth out, and another loose. Defendant then came in, and, being very noisy, witness told him to be still, to which he answered U D- you, shut up, you are taking her evidenoe first. I suppose you will take me up to night. Nt-ver mind, I have bad two before." Witness stayed there about thr e quarters of an hour trying to pacify the defendant, but he seemed to be raving mad, and was taken- into custody. Superintendent Mathews said that the defendant had a very good character when sober, but when, drnnk he beeeme like a raving maniac. Defendant was sentenced to three months-' hard labour. A DESERTER.—James Watts.. Treherbert was charged with deserting from the Glamorganshire Militia. Superintendent Mathews proved the charge, and defendant was fined 40. and costs, in default two months' imprisonment. QUARRELSOME NEIIGIIBOURS. FIizt Lewis, Heolfach, summoned Ann Jones, Heolfach, for assaulting her on the 12th inst. There was a cross summons by Ann Jones and Jane Jones (her mother) against Elizabeth Lewis, for an assault on the 15th. Mrs Lewis, who lives in a cellar under the other parties, complained that Ann Jones threw a bucket of water over her on the 12th inst. This, the defendant said, was aa accident, and added that she begged Mrs Lewis's pardon at the time. Mrs Lewis's husband gave evidence as to the drenching they had received from the defendant. He was sitting outside with his wife when the water was thrown over them. The evidence as to the other assault proved that the whole affair was a mere squabble between women, accompanied with much filthy language. Both cases were dismissed. CHARGE OF ASSAULT. — Sarah Goldsworthy, Ystrad, summoned Edward Meredith, Ystrad, for assaulting her on the 13th inst. Mr Williams appeared for the defendant. The complainant stated that she went to the Windsor Arms at It o'clock last Saturday week. Defendant came in and was quarrelsome. He then wanted to fight her husband and there was a scuffla between them. She went to separate them, and received two blows from defendant. H-r husband had given the defendant some slight provocation. Witnesses were called for the defence they were not able to swear that defendant did not strike complainant, but testified that complainant had struck the de- fendant. The complainant's husband was drunk, but defendant was sober. His Worship said there was a doubt in the case and the charge would be dismissed. A RIOTOUS DITUI;YARD. Da-fid Llewellyn, Blaencwm, charged with being drunk and riotous on the 20th instant, and with assaulting P.S. Pickwick while in the execution of his duiy, was fined 10s and costs for being drunk, and 40s and costs for the assault.
DAWN. Now the stars pale upon the brow of night,. The soft and golden moon Comes on spaee Aurora cleaves the mist along the sky, Shit scatters slender threads of crimson light j The young nloon gazing downwards veils her rue- From morning's bolder glance in haste to fly. Kissed into life, the western wave afar, In laughing triumph smooth's its heavy breast, The cold grey clouds floating wreaths have spun, Of pale sad beauty round the morning star; The skylark waking leaves ita dewy nest, And soars away to meet the rising sun. The mighty bills have caught the glowing ray, Down into the valleys roll the Sapphire floods, The mountain torrents leap, and fia.sting flow. Zephyrs awake to greet the new born day, And countless dewdrops on the folded buds Gleam in the laughing light with diamond glow. A ealm, a holy calm falls like the dew Of weary Hermon down upon the world, The day god rises from his golden rest, And thrones. himself upon the de,ps of blue Back to her dark abode the night is hurled, And smiling mom displays her glorious nest. So passion's flame dies out in dark despair, Yet looks. with brighter eyes towards that goal Where sin and sorrow may not come, for love Sball reign for ever in those regions fair So man bows to God's own will, while from above Sweet rest sublime endawns upon his soul.

IRON AND COAL TRADE. ("From the Mining World.) There bas been no movement of any consequence to chronicle in the iron trade since last report. Exports have slightly fallen off since last week, aud have chiefly been to Sweden, with a few cargoes to Spain and Turkey* The works are chiefly employed on colonial and Swedish require- ments, but the large Russian contracts which were looked torwaid to with some amount ot certainty have not yet come to hand and with the American demand limited to the smallest-possible proportions, and the home enquiry showing no improvement, ironmasters are, it will be easily understood, labouring under great hardships. As if things were not already bad enough, the Cyfartha ironstone miners have been put on half time, and it is feared that this portends at no distant date an entire steppage. Reductions are everywhere the order of the day and although the steel works have hitherto been, as a rule, better employed than the iron- making establishments, a company owing a large works have given notices to terminate contracts with a view to enforoing a reduction, it is believed, of a substantial nature. The tin-plate trade is still dull and at one of the local works (at Pontyminster) notice to terminate contracts at the end of the month have beco posted. Business in the coal trade is still fairly active. although thtre is na doubt that in many instances proprietors are making only a very small margin of profit, if, indeed, they are making any at all. The Mediterranean trade is fairly brisk. la house Coals business is not so good as mi.bL be expected, taking into consideration the coldness of the season. The Gre:tt Western Company's Bill camo before the committee of the House of Commons this week, and that part of the preamble rel tting to the acquisition of Hall's tramroad, and the for- mation of a junetion with the Gr..at Western Railway at Tredegar, was declared proved. It is belil ved that the tramroad will b. cony.-rted into a locomotive railway. The tramroad was the private property of Lady Llanover. In the event of its being convert d into a railway, great facilities for traffic will be given to tbe eastern side of the Sirhowy Valley, and will throw open a considerable portion of the house coal district. The colliers employed at the Glynmoch, Cross Inu Colliery (Monmouthshire), have been on strike, in consequence of some dispute with the manager. At the New Park Pit a disagreement exists. Twelve colliers have been charged at Bri Igelld with having intimidated men employed in tUe Park Slip Collieries, near Tonddu, and were fined 51. and costs, each.
