PENFFORDD. THE PRIMROSE LEAGUE.—On Tuesday, the 11th inst., a meeting under the auspices of the Primrose League was held at Penfordd Schoolroom, in the parish of Bletherston. The chair was ably filled by Mr J. Vaughan Colby, who, after an appropriate and telling speech, introduced Capt. Jones-Parry to the meeting. Capt Parry addressed the audience with a stirring vigorous speech, yet delightfully humorous. He dwelt upon the origin, objects, and work done by the League, and also on other subjects of immediate political importance. The next speaker was Mr Picton, who delivered an eloquent Welsh address, full of the Cymric fire and ardour. He particularly pointed his arguments to his fellow-farmers, and met with their unanimous approval. Finally, Sir Charles j Philipps, Bart., responded to an invitation to address the meeting. He did so in an effective, yet unosten- tatious manner, and was heartily cheered. After the usual votes of thanks, a most successful meeting ter- minated with the National Anthem. Several new members Iwere then enrolled in the Haverfordwest Habitation by the respected Secretary, the Rev. I. G. Lloyd. Considering the very unfavourable weather, the meeting was largely attended. Great credit is due t" Mrs Colby for her zeal and courage in organizing this first gathering, which we hope will henceforth be held annually. The spacious platform was erected under the supervision of Mr J. Llewellyn, Blether- ston, who deserves the warmest thanks of the Habita- tion for his ever ready assistance.
