LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. AN ARTISTIC PRODUCTION.-The life-sized painting of Mr David Davies, jun., of Llandinam, produced by Mr Jones, artist, of the Glebeland, at a cost of JE170, was presented by the Rhondda Valley colliers some days since. Mr Jones has employed good taste in the arrangement of the portrait, and has been most success- ful in the design and arrangement of colours. The background represents a mountain scene near the Ocean Steam Coal Colleries. The likeness is remarkably ■ riking, and is painted with much strength and force in the lights and shades, causing it to stand fJom the canvas almost stereoscopically. A movement is con- templated in the Aberdare Valley on the part of the colliers with a view to purchasing Mr Jones's excellent painting of Lord Aberdare, in order that it may be sus- pended at the Workmen's Hall, Mountain Ash. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The ordinary weekly meet- ing of this Board was held on Saturday, Mr. B. Kirk- house, vice-chairman, presiding. The attendance was very limited. The return of admissions into the house during the eight quarters, ending September 30th, 1873, which had been moved for by Mr R. H. Rhys, was read, and showed that while Merthyr had sent 80 cases of contagious diseases into the House during that period, Aberdare had sent only six. These returns had been called for in consequence of some statements made by Mr Simons at a recent meeting of the Board of Health, when it was stated that most of the contagious diseases in Merthyr were brought over from Aberdare. Mr Rhys remarked that he thought the returns would have the effect of upsetting this theory, and it had more than justified his expectations, for whilst he ex- pected that it would be found that the difference in this respect between Merthyr and Aberdare would be 10 to 1, it would be found to be between 13 and 14 to 1.
