BLAENAVON. THE FArR.-Our second annual fair was held on Satur- day last, at which beer retailers, innkeepers, and fruit, nut, and ginger-bread sellers appeared to monopolize the busi- ness. The police seemed vigilant, and all passed off quietly. CASTELL IFOR.-During the week a Mr. and Mrø, Newman have been giving a comic and miscellaneous en. tertainment at this hostelry, which was well received by numerous audiences. SUPPER.-An excellent treat of this description was given by Mr. J. G. Williams to his workmen and others, at which upwards of 100 people sat down, at the house of Mr. Wm. Roberts, the Old Oak Tree Inn, on the evening of Monday last. The cloth having been removed, Mr. W. H. George was called to the chair, and Mr. Lewis, carpenter, to the vice-chair, when the company proceeded to prove themselves very loyal and patriotic subjects, by drinking the toasts that attest the same. Good addresses were delivered by the chairman, vice-chairman, Mr. Williams, Mr. Challenger, and other gentlemen present. Numerous songs were sung in capital style, and a large number of toasts of a local and complimentary character were given, enthusiastically received, and suitably responded to. The proceedings throughout were of a very pleasant and agreeable nature. LET THERE BE LIGHT:" WHERE ARE THE LAMPS ?— The question of why are there no lamps in the public streets of Blaenavon P has been frequently asked, but we are informed that no satisfactory reason has ever yet been given. As the days are now what is commonly- called drawing in," people become aware that winter is ap- proaching, and knowing the danger and ideorvenience- of which many of them have been painfully reminded— that have heretofore arisen from the want of public lamps, the question of their non-existence has been again mooted with more than ordinary anxiety. It does, indeed, seem exceedingly anomalous that a gas manufactory should exist, and that gas-light should be found in the shops, public houses, and other places of business, and yet that the public streets of a place like this—which aspires to the title of a town-and which, by-the-by, are anything but con. veniently arranged, should be left in utter darkness The inhabitants can remedy the evil by applying to the Secre. tary of State, who would call upon the Local Government Board to "shew cause" why they neglect to procure public lamps for the streets when people are willing to pay for such convenience.— Communicated. THE TALKING- FISH.-Some little surprise, which was ultimately converted into a good deal of merriment, was created here on the evening of Wednesday week, on its being announced that some monster of the. deep," from that far distant ocean, perhaps- "Where sailors gang to fish for cod had taken up its quarters in our little river, in which it was performing sundry piscatory movements and evolu- tions, apparently for its own delight and gratification. The intelligence of this "new arrival," and its operations soon had the effect of causing a vast number of people to assemble on the bridge and banks of the river, amongst whom various were the surmises and conjectures as to what kind of a fish this really could be, when, as if' to put all doubt at an end, it made a sound so much like that of the human voice, that the bystanders at once concluded that this could be no other than the veritable talking fish" of which so much has been said and written. The cry of The talking fish! The talking fish at length became general throughout the crowd, and people were anxiously straining themselves to get a good view of this tenth wonder of the world, when all hopes of inspecting such a curiosity became suddenly blasted on its being discovered that this strange inhabitant of the deep was not a fish after all, but a silly fellow who bad leaped into the river to drown himself in order to spite" his mother because she had prepared a lodger's supper before his own What next? TESTIMONIAL.—It having become known that Mr. Thomas Lewis, son of Mr. John Lewis, lurnace manager of this place, was about leaving, to take the management, of the Cwmbran furnaces, a testimonial was got up amongst his friends, which consist, d of a gold watch, valued at £16, The presentation took place on Thursday evening, at the Queen Inn, and was accompanied by an appropriate address. Mr. Lewis responded briefly, feel- ingly expressing his sincere thanks for the kinrtness of his friends. Several addresses were delivered by Mr. Vincent, Prince of Wales Inn, and others, and a very convivial evening was spent. ENGLISH INDEPENDENT CHAPEL.-This chapel, for- merly known as the Horeb Baptist Chapel, is now being used by the English Independents, who, on Thursday last, held an ordination service there, when the Rev. Daniel Evans, late of Carmarthen College, was crdained as its future minister. The Revs. W. Morgan, Carmarthen, T. Eees, Chepstow, and others officiated, and the proceedings were'altogether of a deeply interesting character.
TREGARE. THANKSGIVING FESTIVAL.—A thanksgiving gathering, and a social tea meeting, took place at Effil Newydd Meet- ing House, on Wednesday last, both of which were verv well attended. The Rev. Mr. Campbell, M.A., from Mon- mouth, discoursed in the afternoon from Galatians, vi chap., 7 verse-" Be not deceived, God is not mocked whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap.The subject of which he elucidated with great ability, and rendered remarkably clear and instructive to his audience, as well as fitting to the occasion, sustaining the closest at- tention throughout. At the conclusion, the meeting was adjourned, in order to prepare the creature comforts, and an excellent tea was afterwards well served, at the low charge of sixpence a head, of which anumerous company partook, and who passed well-merited compliments upon those who superintended the trays and general manage- ment. Tea being over, the meeting recommenced, Mr. Williams, of Wern-y-Mellin, being voted to the chair. The Rev. W. Campbell, M.A., (Monmouth), was again, called upon, who, after expressing his very great satisfac- tion at the success of their meetings, gave a brief, but im- pressive and animated address upon the subject of Gratitude and love to God;" remarking that the present meeting was the happy result of the past efforts of the friends of truth in that locality, declaring his conviction of the ultimate success of the principles there proclaimed, and asserting that the human mind loved truth as naturally as the eye sought light, no one being content to sit in dark- ness. The speaker concluded by heartily avowinghis readi- ness and willingness to work with every one for the common good. Mr. Dawe, (Monmouth), followed in a sound, pithy, and practical speech, upon a similar subject. Mr. Charles Forward, (Raglan), afterwards entertained the audience with an excellent, and pathetic discourse upon Love, and the power of kindness." The meeting terminated about eight o'clock, with praise and prayer, all being highly grati- fied with the proceedings.
CAERLEON. PETTY SESSIONS, TUESDAY, before the Rev. W. POWELL. ASSAULT.-Mary Welch was charged with assaulting Mary McCarthy. This turned out to be one of those rows between women, which are so common at Cwmbran, and in which they give each other the "full length of their tongues." Several witnesses were examined for both sides, from whose evidence it appeared that defendant had as- saulted the complainant by throwing a stone at her. She was therefore bound over to keep the peace for six months', and ordered to pay the costs. ADJOURNMENTS.—The cases of James Price, charged with stealing a slop, and Edwin Edwarts, charged with a trespass, were both adjourned to the next meeting, Oct..1.- (Other District Intelligence on 8th page),
