THE REV. R. T. HOWELL.We understand that the Rev. R. T. Howell, late of Malvern, who has accepted the pastorate of the Taber- nacle Congregational Church, in this town, will deliver a discourse rn Sunday morning next having reference to his settlement at the above church. TABERNACLE" CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. —It will be seen from an announcement in this week's issue that a bazaar and fancy jfair, ir aid of the funds of the above church, will take place in the i emperance Hall, on the 6tb, 7th, and 8th June next. The ladies of the congre- gation have been busily engaged for some months past in making preparations for the event, and we have no doubt there willjbealarge and varied collection of articles brought to gether for disposal. James Lewifl, Eeq J.P., Plasdraw, has kindly consented to open the bazaar. Every effort is being made by the committee in order to make the affair a success. ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE, — The monthly meeting of this committee was held on Satur- day, when the members present were Messrs R. H. Rhys, J. Morgans (Aberdare), D. Davies (Aberdare), T. Williams, J. Lewis, W. Boll and T. J er:.kins.-On the motion of Mr J. Ijewta it was unanimously resolved that Mr Rhys be re-appointed chairman of the committre for the next 12 months, a compliment which he briefly acknowledged.—A number of minor appeals were dealt with, several public-houses at Mar- thyr and Aberdare being reduced in their assess- ments. BOARD OF G-tTARDIANS.Ir R. H. Rhys (chairman) presided over the weekly meeting of this board on Saturday.An application was uiade from a Mrs Cotter for the removal of some children at the Aberdare institution to the Roman Catholic School at Treforest. The implication, after a brief discussion, was allowed ;o remain in obeyance.—A report was received from the visiting committee stating that the workhouse was kept in the utmost order and uleanliness. — The committee of the Aberdare rrainxng School reported that during the past year there had been a profit made at the in stitution upon the industrial labour of X38 7a lid. The report being considered as a very satisfactory one, the fact was mentioned by the chairman that, in addition to the profit made, the children had been taught trades that would be useful to them in future, and enable them to earn their own living.—The out-relief during the past week was as follows: Aberdare X68 6s Gelligaer, JE20 15s 7d Mer- thyr Upper, JE64 6s 4d; Merthyr Lower, jEa4 2s 6d; non-settled, 91 is bd-total, 1208 lls lid—In the Aberdare Training School were 137 children (of whom 113 were under industrial training), as against 122 in the corresponding week of last year. In the workhouse were 191 inmates, a comparative deacrease of 14, there having been 16 applications, making 22 ordered into the house during the week DEATH OF DR. OWEN (^THING WILLIAMS, OF SWANSEA.—We have to announce the death of Dr. Owen Gething Williams, which took place at his residence, Pantysifi, Sketty, on luesday night. The late Mr Williams, who was in his 78th year, is snid to be the oldest medical practitioner in South Wales. He passed the College of Surgeons in the year 1831, and Was a member of that body at the time of his demise. He took an active part in promoting the progress of Swansea, and was for many years a member of Jbhe town council. The value of his public services was acknowledged by his being elected, in 1850, to till the civic t, chair. He was also a member of the board of guardians, and while he served as vice-chairman of that body the new union workhouse on Mount Pleasant was built. He was connected in his early years with the Swansea Canal Company, and was a Commissioner of Income- tax. Mr Williams's father is said to have practised as a surgeon in Swansea a century ago. ABERDARE DISTKICT OF MINERS.—The above society held their monthly meeting on Monday, at the Cross Inn, Trecynon, when there was a. good attendance. Mr Wm. Bowden presided. After a report from Mr D. Morgaxf, the district agent, as to the general position of the district, the following resolutions were passed :—(1.) "That this meeting highly approves of the action taken by the Middle Duffryn workmen (working in the two feet nine inch seam) in insisting on the proposition made by their arbitrators, in reference to the said seam." (2.) "That this meeting are of the same opinion as the workmen of the Middle Duffryn Colliery, viz that it is not necessary for them to work a month's notice, if the arbritatisn proves a failure," (3.) "That this meeting gladly receive the workmen of the Nantymelyn And the steam coal collieries, Hirwaiu, as members of this society, on condition that they fall in with our rules. (4.) 1 hat this meeting aproves of the action of the Nantymelyn workmen to give notice, inasmuch as, in the opinion of this meeting they do not receive their rights of labour." (5.) "That Mr D. Morgan should have an interview with Mr Hann, manager of the Old Duffryn Pit at Cwmbach, in oruer to get the proper standard price on the ton of c.)al." fhat this meeting do urge upon our steam coal representatives to make another appeal to the employers for a separate scale to our- selves as steam colliers, if our house coal friends do not feel inclined to join in one scale; and also to make an appeal for 5 par cent. advance as soon as possible." THE WEATHER AND THE CSOPS.—Monday's Mark-Lane hxpress says: During the past week the weather has been brilliantly fine and dry, with strong easterly winds and cold frosty nights. On Sunday the air was southerly and softer, as it was on Monday morning. Very little progress has been made by vegetation, as com- pared with the previous week; and the tendency of the week's weather on the wheat crop is distinctly in the direction of forcing the plant into ear on a stunted growth of straw. The spring corn wants rain and warmer nights, and none of the cereals are in a better condition than they were a week ago. The trade for native wheat remains dull and languid, but rates have not declined for good milling samples. Country flour has become weaker in value, and occasionally less money has beeo accepted. In other desciptions of home grown grain and pulse there has been no change during the week. Foreign wheat off stands in London has met a very laborious sale during the past week, whilst in Liverpool values declined Id per cental all round on Friday. Flour at the close of the week must be written decidedly easier to buy, Australian makes being relatively cheaper than Australian wheat. Maize has met a. languid demand, and prices are easier. PRESENTATION TO MR DANIEL GRIFFITHS.— A presentation of a very handsome desciption was made on Monday evening last, at Bethania, Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, in this town, to Mr Daniel Grsffiths, ir<Jhmonger, High-street. Mr Griffiths has devoted much time and atten- tion for many years past to the improvement ot tae singing at the various churches belonging totle Calvinistic Methodist body in the parish, and has acted as conductor at their annual musical festivals. As a token of respect and in acknowledgment of his past faithful services he was preseuted, on the evening in question, with a full-length portrait in oil, in massive gilt frame, supplied by Messrs Smith and Son, of Swansea. The likeness is very striking and reflects great credit upon the artists. Mr Griffiths was further presented with a valuable gold watch and chain, with a suitable in- scription. Particulars will be found elsewhere, supplied by our esteemed correspondent, Iolo Bach.
ODDS AND ENDS By THE MAN IN THE CORNER. I am pleased to find that my effusions for last week were appreciated by many and gave satis- faction to even some of the individuals interested therein. So much so have the nroductions pro- duced by me been appreciated, that at a sale of accumulated papers over a period, at one of the many clubs in the town, which took place last week, the copies of the TIMES reached a much higher price than the other periodicals. This may arise by the recent issues being eagerly sought by an antiquarian, but I rather think the value of the papers was enhanced by the flattering compliment paid by the (unlicensed) auctioneer to the remarkable abilities of my poor self. This is more appreciated, knowing the arguments and quotations, &c., made use of by the salesman on a recent debate upon News- papers, but his opinion has now undergone a change—like the moon-so that I have good hopes of finding shelter in more than one corner. Apropos of the Drawing Room" party referred to last week, I omitted to mention that a most singular and to my experience unpre- cedented circumstance connected withthe "get up" was that the fair young damsels who got up the party bore the whole of the expenses. These parties are usually the source of many matri- monial alliances and the expenses are borne by the gallant young men, but it seems as if the young gents Wf're' slow in proposing, so that some means must be devised for bringing them to the point. There is something in this suggestion, for I hear that two of the young gents who were rather of a pugilistic nature gave scope tc their propensities by having a set-to as to who should chaperon a charming maiden (one of the stewards, I presume) on her way home that night. But this means of deciding who is best man is not always the right one in the end, for although the successful el combatant (known at a recent public party as Minstrel"; had the privileve of escorting the young lady homeward, the unsuccessful woer was the nearest to the heart, for I hear he had the parting kiss that night. Taking the party as a whole the object of the projectors was attained, and we may some day hear of the con- summation of proceedings originated at this noted Drawing Room C5 While on this subject, I am reminded of three things which I was told many many years ago that would never agree. They are thesi: 2 cats over one mouse, 2 wives in one house, and 2 lovers over one maiden. Our most gracious Queen attained her 63rd year on Wednesday last, and I regret Aberdare lacked in its manifestations of joy at the event. It is usual for us to hear a merry peal from the bells, but there was nothing to be noticed from those who should feel proud of the long life of such a good sovereign. Some lads on their way toschnol oil Wednesday, howeve- appear to have some loyalty in them for 1 heard them. singing The twenty-fourth of May, The Queen's birth-day, If we don't have a holiday, We'll all run away. I hope my numerous friends will excuse me for relating a most extraordinary dream. I dreamt this week, and, like Pharoah, I long for an interpretation. It runs as follows :—Whilst I was strolling along the banks of a silvery stream admiring the beauties of nature and my thoughts in a most pensive mood, lo to my horror a rush was made at me by a legion from behind a hedge, and the next moment I found myself floating on the water, not to drown, of course, but buoyed up beautifully and I could see the legion running away as if pursued by wolves. They did not appear to be above the height of boys, and the size of their legs showed nnmistakeable evidence of the want of aoimal food. In a few seconds 1 awoke and found it was only a dream. No doubt there is some- thing in dreams, aAd to be forewarned is fore- armed," so that I should be thankful if some of my readers who have dream books, or who assume to be able to interpert dreams, would send me their opinion next week addressed to the care of the Editor.
CALVINISTIC METHODIST MUSICAL FESTIVAL. .-J. .Ao. The musical festival of the: Aberdare section of the Calvinistics was held on Monday last. At the commencement of the day the elements seemed to be conspiring to damp the ardour of the choristers, butiOwards the afternoon, as if to digappoint the prophets of stormy weather, &c., the clouds dispersed, the blue shone, and the faces of all were reflecting the beauty and freshness of nature. The morning meeting was hell at Cwmaman, the afternoon at Abei »man,jand the evening at Aberdare-the same being the chief meeting of the day. The singing through out was remarkable, as usual, and reflected credit both upon the conductors and choristers The requiem, "I'm Heglwys Hoffusaf Daeth Angel Marwolaeth," was rendered with strange pathos, and effectively told upon all listeners. It was sung in memoriam of Mr John Jones, who for several yfears conducted the congrega tional singing in Bethania. A man, wno wore his heart upon his sleeve, an open, candid, and trustworthy man, who was equally at home with men as with children. In the latter phase we remember him. Many years ago, when a lad at Bethania, and as lads usually are-well -vigorous and active, and also as a next door neighbour, we remember the admonitions and friendly counsels, given with the rare tact and grace with which he was blessed. An un- obtrusive and unoffending man, whose name commanded respect, even among the moat unruly of Sabbath school chil tren, John Jones the Fruiterer, dead, and the requienp sang in memoriam! Ah well, his name required no requiem, no solemn dirge, for it is as powerful as over, jitble gentle influence of his amiable character, Flows, Soft as the fleeces of descending snows, With easy art, Melting, they fall,and sink into the heart." And, in the words of the requiem, Amidst the high chanting of seraphs, Who throng'd lomul the throne like a sea, The voice of the King he heard saying, Come hither, come hither, and dwell ne r to me, In truth hu biing daad yet epeaketh." I At the close of the festival a testimonial was given to Mr Dan Griffiths, the conductor, being a token and tribute of esteem. G. Williams, Esq., Miskin Manor, as a "friend, relative, and an old member of the choir, touchingly referred to "the days that are no more," and spoke of the manly qualities of the conductor. Several laymen and Reverend gentlemen also spoke in eulogistic terms. Mr Dan Griffiths is well known to the majority of Aberdarians as one of the old school, determined and persevering in all things he takes in hand. In music, he is perfectly at home. He possesses that power found in men of genius and culture, the rare faculty of real- ising the musical subject, of laying hold of the soul of music and poetry, of sympathy with the author; and .more, he is able not only to feel the soul of music himself, but, hopossesses the tact to lay bare the soul of music in all its beauty and intensity of passion before his hearers. The power of music which the ancients £ ersonified seems to be the very soul of his life. ike Aricn, the lyric poet of Methyinua, crowds flocked to hear his sweet discoursings or like Orpheus, who when He did sing, To his music, plants and flowers E\er sprung as sun and showers There had made a lasting spring." So with the training and singing of his choir, they brla4 sweet thoughts to the mind, passion- ate yearnings, new resolutions, hopes of fadeless joys, never-ending happy reunions, which rise like fragrant fl)wers aftertimes in the memory with overpowering unction- In sweet music is such art: Killing care and grief oi heart Fall asleep, or, hearing die 1" We trust that the beautiful oil painting of himself add the gold watch and chain, which were presented to him, will excite him to labour on in such a manner that the divine unction be upon him and his labours so that, when the mortal sun sinks to rise no more in his life, the eternal non-setting sun of righteollsuess may rise to gladden, to hallow him with its splendour, and to usher him into the home of pure and perfect song.

MOUNTAIN ASH LOCAL BOARD. The ordinary fortnightly meetrng of the above board was held on Monday, at the board-room, Workman's Hall, when there were present, Messrs W. Little (chairman). J. Griffiths, T. Edwards, M. Morgan, W. Pritchard, C. J. N. Gray, R. Evans, W. Morgan, W. Bevan, G Jones, H. W. Martin, and T. Yeo. The minutes of tae last meeting were read and confirmed. WILFUL DAMAGE TO COPING, &C. The Clerk intimated that, in accordance with instructions at the last meeting, advertisements had been duly published offering a reward for information respecting the damage done to the coping, but he had heard noting further as to the discovery of the offending party. A letter had also been written to Mr Shepherd with reference to the wings of the canal bridge, but no reply had been received. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. The Medical Officer reported 22 fresh cases of scarlet fever since last meeting, 3 having occurred at Penrhiwceibr and 19 in the town, being a slight increase upon the previous report; also 7 deaths, most of which were from the sequela of the fever, such as dropsy, &c. He had instructed the Inspector to attend to the existing cases by supplying each infected house with disinfectants, &c. A similar report was read from the Inspector of Nuisances, who stated that there had been an increase of 4 fever cases as compared with the previous, fortnightmostofthem were of a mild character. Several cases of arrears for private improvements were also reported by the Inspector. On the motion of the chairman, it was re- solved that the Inspector be instructed to collect the amounts referred to. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The following report of the Surveyor was road:- Local Board Office, Mountain Ash, May 22nd. 1882. To the Chairman and Memberv of the Mountain Ash Local Board. Gentlemen,—I beg to report that since the Board posted notices offering a reward for in- formation respecting any person or persons throwing down coping stones, over six yards of coping on the Newtown Bridge have been knocked into the canal. I beg to report the Penrhiwceibr-road has made good progress during the last fortnig ht. The roadway is now formed the entire length excepting about 40 yards on the Penrhiwceibr side and the filling over No. 1 culvert. The ballast is nearly completed from Peugeulau to Penrhiwceibr. 0 I beg to report 778 houses are connected with the new sewers, 145 of which have been connected by the Board at a cost of JE50, 254 houses are yet to be connected for closet and slop connections and 225 houses are to be con- nected for slop drainage. Out of the 254 houses a small proportion in Caegarw are provide! with pans and syphons. I find there are 182 houses to be connected by the Board which I estimate will cost JE81 18s Od I beg to lay before you a plan showing an addition to Mr Bevan's house, Penrhiwceibr, which I would recommend be passed. Mr Thos. Jones, one of the owners of No. 2, Phillip-street, has refused to sign an agree nent as to the future repairs of the house. I have advised him to see the Hoard. Messrs. the Powells Duffryn Co. have submitted a plan showing a proposed Powder Magazine, which I would recommend be passed —I beg to remain, gentleman, your obedient servant, JNO. HERBERT JENKINS. THROWING DOWN OoPING STONES. The Chairman, referred to the first item in the above report, remarked that he considered it a serious reflection upon the police, that since attention had been called to the matter by the Hoard, and a reward offered, more damage should be done. He would recom- mend that Sergt. John's special attention be called to it. The Surveyor said he could not help thinking that some one interested in the trade had com- mitted the act. Mr Edwards remarked that it would be a very good job if they could capture the guilty party. The matter then dropped. I NEW DRAIN CONNECTIONS. The Chairman said with regard to the drain connections, the Surveyor should carry them out as soon as practicable. The time had arrived when they could do without Robert John, who was engaged in a case of emergency. The committee thought his services could now be dispensed with. He, therefore, begged to move that a fortnight's notice be given him, and in the meantime that he assist the Surveyor. Mr G. Jones seconded the motion, and it was carried THE MAIN ROAD AT PENRHIWCEIBR. Mr Edwards moved that the Clerk write to Vlajor Vavghan Lee and call his attention to the state of Rheola-road, Penrhiwceibr; and also inform him that if he put the road into a prcper state of repair, the Board would be pre- pared to adopt it as a highway. This was agreed to. SLAUGHTER HOUSE ACCOUNT." The Clerk read a statement of the slaughter- house account, showing the receipts and expen- diture. The latter amounted to £ 323 0s lOd, and allowing for interest at five pur cent, and other expenses, there was a balance in hand of X2 10s 2d. The result was considered satisfactory. BUILDING PLANS. On the motion of Mr G. Jones, seconded by Mr Edwards, the two building plans presented by the Surveyor were approved. THE RIVAL COLLtGES. A letter having been received respecting the proposed university college for Wales, .the chairman remarked that they had alreaiy made up their minds not to interfere in the matter, and it was ordered that the communication lie on the table PROPOSED TAXATION OF ROYALTIES. A circular letter was read from Mr D. B. Williams, J.P., Hirwain, urging the Board to petition Parliament in favour of taxing royalties for local purposes, and a form of petition was also enclosed. The Chairman said they had' all heard the letter read, and he should be glad to hear the opinion of the members on the matter, or any j resolution thereon. He was certainly opposed to the proposal, although he had no feeling in the matter. He did not think the question was j brought forward in the right way; but whether j they petitioned or not, he did not believe they should see any legislation upon it for some time to come. Mr Yeo said it seemed to him an incompatible and unfair arraragemeut that those gentlemen who took such vast amounts of money, some- thinglike £160,000 per annum,.should contribute nothing towards the local rates. The hairman: They contribute indirectly. Mr Yeo: We all contribute directly or indirectly, but I should like to see them contribute somethtng directly. Mr G. Jones I am not aware of any new tax being levied of late I think it is a step in the right direction. The Chairman: Situated as I am to-day, I shall not oppose any motion that may be brought forward, although I differ in opinion Mr Edwards 1 he taxes go in one direction and as Mr Yeo stated, it is contrary to my feel- ings that such a sum of money should not pay its fair quota towards local rates. 1 should like to have the opinion of the Board on the question. Mr Gn tutus Suppose we allow it to lie on tho table till next meeting. Mr G. Jones: Why don't you give notice of motion that you will bring it before the next meeting. Mr Cray I quite agree with Mr Yeo, that royalties ought to be taxed. Mr W. Bevan and Mr W. Morgan expressed similar views. Mr G. Jones proposed, and Mr Yeo seconded, that the petition forwarded by Mr D. E. Williams be prepared for signature and pre- sentation to parliament. Mr Pritchard proposed as an amendment that it lie on the table. This was seconded by Mr M. Morgan. The Board divided, with the following result: Neutral, 1; for the resolution, 8; for the amendment, 2. The resolution was therefore declared carried. THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. A communication was received from the Guilda Brook Local Board, Manchester, asking the Board to support a memorial to the Board ot Trade against companies wishing to obtain a monopoly in reference to the electric light. On the motion of Mr W Morgan, it was ordered that the matter stand over till next Board. THE IRISH ASSASSINATIONS. On the motion of Mr J Griffiths seconded by by Mr T. Edwards, the board passed the follow- ing resolution:—"That this board records its detestation of such a diabolical doed as the assassination of Lord Frederick Cavendish and Mr Burke, and expresses its most sincere sympathy with the relatives of the deceased gentlemen in their terrible bereavement." Mr Gwilym Jones desired to follow up this resolution by forwarding the following to the Government:—"That this board wishes to assure Mr Gladstone and her Majesty's Govern ment of its entire confidence in them, and rejoice that, while taking all necessary steps for the safety of life and property in Ireland, the Government are determined to press forward measures which will have a tendency to bring about peace and prosperity in that country." Objection was taken to the motion by the chairman and several other members, as being of too political a nature to be brought before the board, Mr Yeo remarking that although he would advise the mover net to press the resolu- tion, he would second it if he did so. Eventually Mr Jones withdrew the motion. A LOCAL WANT, On the motion of Mr Bevan, seconded by Mr W. Morgan, the clerk was asked to inquire if they could not get an officer appointed at Mountain Ash for the registration of births and deaths, in order to prevent people having to go to Llanfabon. THE BALLOT AT LOCAL ELECTIONS. Mr Griffiths gave notice that at the next meeting he would in3ve that a memorial be sent to the Government in favour of having the ballot at local elections. FINANCE. The finance committee reported that the general district rate was overdrawn to the amount of £ 64 Is, and the sewage account by gi582 10s lud. The board then adjourned.

CYNON RIVER, ABERDARE. To the Editor of the ABERDARE TIMES. Sir,—On Monday last whilst a friend and myself were fishing in this river, about one o'clock in the afternoon, to our great surprise we came across a man netting The mesh of the net was not a quarter of an inch, which was proved by the fact that after having dragged one pool the net was full of minnows I re- monstrated with him upon his conduct, but without effect, and I have since heard that netting is frequently carried on. May I, there- fore, ask the Inspector of Police to kindly look into the matter and endeavour to detect the offenders, thereby earning the gratitude of all lovers of fair fishing who desire to have a thorough good day's sport.—Yours, & c., AN ANGLER.
