LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. PUBLIC BALL.—Among the many attractions in preparation for the approaching Christmas holidays, we hear that a public ball to be given by the Merthyr Cricket Club is likely to occupy a prominent position.

The details of this anticipated gathering will be given in due time in our advertising columns. THE SWANSEA SHIPPINR CO.
