T E N B Y. TENBY NEW NATIONAL SCHOOL.—The rector, the Rev G. Huntington, has promised to guarantee £ 100 towards the building fund. The last entertainment for the season took place at Working Men's Club on Thursday evening last, J. G. Layar.l, Esq, in the chair. The room was crowded, and the programme satisfactorily gone through. ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS, EDINBURGH.—John Griffith Lock, M.A. Cantab, M.R.C.S., L.M. England, of Tenby, South Wales, having undergone the necessary examinations, was admitted to the degrees of Licentiate of Medicine and Licentiate of Midwifery, on March the 24th. During the past week several teetotal lectures have been delivered by Mr J. Eddy, of the West of England and South Wales Temperance League. The attendance on each occasion was numerous, and we have been given to understand many have been led to embrace the lecturer's views. We only hope that in no instance will the converts turn backsliders. Anything that tends to lessen the national sin of drunkenness should meet with the approval of all who have the welfare of their kind at heart. WORKING MEN'S CLUB.—On Tuesday week the seventh half-yearly meeting of the members of the above club was held at the rooms of the Society, C. Allen Esq, in the chair. The Committee's report, which was of a most satisfactory nature, was received, from which we learn that the number of members is on an average 96. A balance of E44 3s 81d is shown on the balafice sheet on the right side. This busi- ness over, the members, according to custom, elected the committee for the ensuing half year—names as follows: Messrs. J. Rogers, R. Math ias W. Gibbs. J. Leach, T. Gibbs, H. Birkin, G. Richards, and J. Evans. The following news- papers and periodicals were ordered to be continued Times, alobe, Telegraph, Daily Leader, Star. Illustrated London Neivs, Punch Quiver, Christian World, Cassell's Paper, British Workman, besides local papers. It is very pleasing to have to record the continued success of this very useful society. We think one of its strong points (though objected to by some is the allowance of such games as bagatelle, chess, &c, by members in the rooms. We believe cue of the heaviest blows to 'pot-house gambling' that can be dealt, is done by the allowing friendly games of skill and chance to be played under certain regulations, without the members being subjected to the pernicious Influences of the tap. We hail the Society's success with pleasure, and shall heartily wish it a still improving future.
