BLAENAVON. LOYAL ORDER OF ALFREDS.—On Monday last the "Rose of Snaron" lodge of the above order partook of their annual dinner at the Royal Exchange Inn. The re- past provided for the occasion reflected great credit on the catering abilities of the host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Shaddick. There were several visiting brothers pre- sent at the meeting, which was held after dinner, and able addresses were delivered upon the merits of the lodge and of the order in general. The meeting was exceedingly well conducted. UNITED FRIENDs.-The members of the United Friend Benefit Society celebrated their anniversary on Monday last, at the Queen Inn. After a pleasant perambulation of the town, they sat down to an excellent dinner provided by the host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. On the re- moval of the cloth, Mr. R. Jones was voted to the chair, and Mr. J. Maybrey to the vice-chair. The usual routine toasts were given and ably responded to by Messrs. J. Maybrey, T. Price, T. Brown, and others, and several good songs were sung. The celebrated Ebbw Vale brass band was in attendance, and played with its usual ability. From a statement made by the secretary, we learn that the lodge has existed about 16 years, and is worth A:500, whilst the number of members (good) on the books at present is about 90, ANNUAL TREAT.—A numerous party met at the Oak Inn on Tuesday evening last, and partook of a substantial supper, after which a very convivial evening was spent. This is an annual treat given by Mr. J. G. Williams to parties growing potatoes upon his ground. CRICKET.—A pleasant game was played on Saturday last between the Blaenavon and Clydach clubs, at Pant-y- Bailey, Clydach, which resulted in favour of Blaenavon. The Clydach players were rather unfortunate in not being able to have some of their best men present, and this ip. a great measure contributed towards the success of their opponents. J. Jayne, Esq., with his usual liberality, pro- vided an excellent repast tor the players. The scores stood as follows at the close of the game: Biaenaroa, 1st in- nings, 36; 2nd innings, 36: Clydachs 1st iaaiega, 21; Sad innings, 17.
