THE ExcisB MOVEMENT.—The Civil Service Gazette in an article on the excise movement, observes These public servants seek for no special privileges, no pecu- liar favours, no patronising graces, no unearned re- wards; they want only to share in the common rights, to be placed on a par with others similarly employed, to be secured in a fair allowance of daily bread for their <1 lily toil. They have nothing to conceal, nothing vrbich they are ashamed to tell; they court inquiry full and searching; they desire to make known what they do and how they do it, and what treatment they receive they was: to teli the public the truth, the whole truth, acd nothing but the truth, confident in the result. We need not say that we sympathise in their movement, and applaud their spirit and conduct.' THE TASKER CHALLENGE.

In the course of the somewhat lengthened proceeding, it appeared to be the opinion of the offiicers present that they should bring their grievances before the notice of Parliament, as they were earnestly desirous that the public should be made acquainted with these grievances, for one speaker said, the public thought the Inland Revenus officers were well paid and were men of good position. It was explained that an officer on first entering the service bad from Y,94 to X95 r year, and had to find a horse. After four or five years service he obtained a salary of X 110 a year, and an additional grant of X20 to pay for a horse and its keep, and all the expenses of travelling. He could then be promoted to be a first-class officer, with a commencing salary of X] 20 a year, creeping up by X5 a year to iCI60, beyond which he could not go. Mr Meikle was elected to the chair, and in the course of an able tpeech, which was much applauded, he maintained that it was the un- deniable right of the civil servants to meet in the manner they had done, and if they were so agreed, to petition Parliament to redress the grievances under which they laboured. He urged that the salaries which the oflicers of that branch of the service receive were altogether inadequate for men who had the responsible and trusted positions which they held, and he spoke of the great loss which the country was liable to sustain through paying inadequate salaries. He stated as his personal expe rience that men who had received these inadequat salaries had been unable to meet their expenses, and the revenue of the country had suffered, inasmuch as these men, acting in collusion with the tax-payers, had sent ie false returns. He next dealt with the allowance of £ 2" a year for travelling expenses, and pointed out that nO allowance whatever was made for the purchase of a borso and gig in the first instance, and this X20 had to covee the purchase of a horse and trap, the expense of all thr necessary fittings, all the expenses of the road, as well ae the rent of coach-house and stable, and the horse's keeps -Times, June 3, 1867. CONCERT AT BROAD HAVEN.—On Monday evening' week a concert of vocal and instrumental music was given at the Terrace House, Broad Haven, near Haverfordwest in aid of the Harroldston West Church Schoolroom Fund, which passed off very successfully. There was a large audience of the elite of the neighbourhood, and of Haverfordwest, as well as the visitors who are spending the season at this delightful and picturesque bathin<* place; The concert commenced at half past seven o'clock, at which time the rooms, which were neatly decorated for the occasion, were well filled with a most fashionable company. The performance commenced with a quad- rille- I The Little Florence,' which was well played by the Haverfordwest Minstrel Band. The next was a part song—'We thank you most sincerely,' which was well sung by the Harroldston West Choir, each sustaining his and her part very correctly after which the Misses Jenkins, of the Saint Martin's Choir, sang very sweetly a pretty duet—' List to the Convent Bells.' Mr William Reynolds, of Hill Street, then sang a solo and chorus very effectively, and was ably accompanied by the Min- strels. Mr and Mrs Meares next played a brilliant duet on the pianoforte, instead of Mr Harding playing a solo on the cornet, who was unavoidably absent. Mr Wm. Jenkins, of the Saint Martin's Choir, gave in capital style I Aly Dear Old Home,' which was well received. The United Choirs next sang most effectively a beautiful anthem (composed by Miss E. S. Phelps) 'Sing Praises,' &c. The Minstrels then played a pretty quartette, which was ably executed. After a short delay, the second part of the programme was commenced by Mr J. Meares and Miss Meares playing a lively duet on the pianoforte. The HarroldstonWest Choir thensung in parts 4 We Little Red Caps.' Mr Beynon and the Minstrels next sang a solo andu;h0rus —' O what would I give to have wings.' A duet was then played by Mr and Miss Meares. A solo and chorus -I The Mocking Bird,' was very amus- ingly rendered by Mr J. Phillips and Minstrels. The Glee Minstrels and the Saint Martin's Choir gave with good effect Rossini's Caraovale.' The Minstrel Band then played a burlesque, and the performance was brought to a close by singing the National Anthem. The company thanked the performers for their very pleasant concert, and dispersed, apparently well pleased with the evening's entertainment. ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Saturday, before A. B. Starbuck, Esq, J. P. Jones, Esq, and Rev. P.Phelps. NEGLECTING TO ENTER MARINE STORES. Richard Vennbles, marine store dealer, at Milford, was charged by P.O. David Evans with neglecting to make an entry of a quantity of old sails purchased by him as marine stores. The defendant admitted the offence, stating that be purchased the articles as old rags, and he did not know the law required him to enter the rags. The Clerk remarked that every man should know what the law required of him in the conduct of his own business, and asked the defendant how long he had been a marine store dealer. The defendant said be bad been in the business four years, but he had for twelve months ceased to do any- thing in the metal stores line. The articles were mixed up with other rags, and were afterwards separated by him. His defective sight made commit him many mis- takes, and he intended to give up the business altogether. The Bench fined the defendant 5s and costs, amounting altogether to 17s. HAVERFORDWEST GRAMMAR SCHOOL.
