MONMOUTH. THE ORDER OF DRUIDS.—The annual meeting and festival of this excellent institution came off on Monday last, at the lodge-house, the Butcher's Arms Inn, Monnow- street, and was attended by nearly 200 persons, including several influential tradesmen and farmers of the neighbour- hood. The dinner, as usual, was served up in capital style by the host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Wilkes, and much satisfaction was expressed at their catering. On the removal of the cloth, Brother P.D.G.M. Thomas Tippins undertook the duties of Chairman, in the place of Brother Edward Pugh, N.G.A., and Brother V.G.A. Jas. Shellard performed the duties of Vice-chairman; and it is almost superfluous to say that each post was most ably filled. The splendid band of the Royal Monmouthshire Militia attended, under the directorship of Mr. Thompson, and their musical abilities were greatly appreciated. From the statement of accounts presented, it appeared that the society, after paying all the expenses of the past year, possesses a reserve fund of £12ô Os. 6d., and this, notwith- standing an unusually great outlay on account of sickness had been experienced, viz., £I)(j 8s. The expenditure on the management account was about the average, and the ajnount of dividend received by each member was £ 1 Os. 2d. The usual loyal and patriotic toasts were pro- posed in the course of the evening, and most cordially received. The principal officers of the society were deservedly complimented in some excellent speeche?, and the entertainment was of a more harmonious character than bad been experienced for some years past. NEW LODGE OF TIIE ORDER OF DRUIDS.—We have been informed that a now Lodge of this order is about to be established at the Griffin Inn, in this town. Mr. Williams, the host, is much respected, and it is only reasonable to anticipate that a good and respectable num- ber of candidates will present themselves for admission into this venerable order.
