CWMBRAN. ANCIENT SHEPHERDS'SOCIETy.-Tha "Shepherd on the Hill" lodge of this society held its anniversary on Monday, the 5th instant, at the Oakfield Inn, when the members, and friends from the neighbourhood, numbering about 120, sat down to an excellent supper, provided by the worthy host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Williams, whose catering gave unqualified satisfaction. Ample jus- tice having been done to the good things, the cloth was removed, and Mr. T. Leadbeater, the manager pf the works, was unanimously voted to the chair, while the duties of vice-chairman were ably discharged by Mr. Davies, cashier of the works. The chairman proposed the usual loyal and patriotic toasts, and others of a local nature. The meeting was enlivened by the celebrated harpist, Mr. William Thomas (" Morlais Alaw"), of Merthyr Tydfil, who played some of the most popular airs of the day. The healtbs of the chairman and vice-chairman were drunk with musical honours, and the harmony of th" evening was greatly enhanced by the singing of Messrs. Copes, J.Evans, Jones, and others, and everything passed off very comfortably.
