GOLYNOS. UNITED FEMALE FRIENDS SOCIETY.-The women of this country appear not to be much behind the men in providing for the contingencies of a rainy day," and, indeed, it may safely be affirmed that the weaker vessel" can sail as well as stronger crait" in troublesome and tempestuous waters. The friends and members of the above named society held their anniversary at the house of Mr. Jones, the Albert Inn, on the evening of Monday last, when about forty of the tair sisterhood partook of a dinner that was, as the phrase went, fit to set before a king." On the removal of the cloth, Mr. Charles Harper, the actuary, was called to the chair, whilst Mrs. Williams occupied the vice-chair. The loyal and patriotic toasts having been given, Success to the Order was pro- posed, and warmly responded to by Mrs. Williams, whose oratorical powers would not have disgraced a member of the other sex. From the statement of the society, it appeared that its finances were of a satisfactory character, and that it presented a safe and easy mode of investing small savings. The harmony of the evening was greatly promoted by Mr. Griffiths, the harper, whose vocal and instrumental contributions elicited great praise, and a very agreeable anniversary was concluded by dancing.
