MR. BRIGHT, while expressing his on the twenty-first anniversary of his political connection with the town, writes to say that he is too much disturbed by recent and still pressing sorrow to enable him to join in any public ceremony in which he was expected to take a prominent part. In accordance with his wish, the celebration will not, therefore, take place during the coming recess. SIR GARNET WOLSELEY, has visited Limasol, on the south coast. A deputation of Greeks, who form a large proportion of the population, waited upon him, and expressed the hope that England would follow the precedent pursued with regard. to the Ionian Islands. The Correspondent says that the disembarkation is procceeding with great alacrity, under the supervision of the Duke of Edinburgh. The heat is intense, but the troops are healthy. A LETTER has been addressed by the Crown Prince of Germany to the Queen, thanking her Majesty in the name of the Emperor William for the assistance rendered and the sympathy displayed by the English authorities and people on the Occasion of the sinking of the Grosser Kurfiirst. The Crown Prince adds that as he himself had the opportunity of witnessing,immediately after the catastrophe, the noble emulation with which the first help was rendered to the wrecked men on English soil, his satisfaction has been all the greater in expressing these sentiments, which he thoroughly shares. JOSEPH MOORE, eight years of age, was charged on Saturday afternoon, at the Southwark Police-court, with shooting and mortally wounding his sister, a child three years old, with a six chambered revolver. Mr. William Hemneslin, a German, said that he had adopted the two children, and that he kept the revolver loaded over his bed to protect himself, and that he was removing at the time of the occurrence. Mr. Benson ordered the boy to be given up to his uncle till after the inquest. GENERAL satisfaction is stated to be felt at (Vienna in regard to the terms of the Austrian tD proclamation to the inhabitants of Bosnia and Herzegovina which was publisked on Saturday night. SEVERAL thousands of Austrian subjects residing in Servia and belonging to the first, second, and third class reserves of the Austrian army have been peremptorily summoned to join their respective battalions. Uneasiness has been created at Belgrade by this measure, which is regarded as indicating a far greater army mobilisation on the frontier than that intended merely for the occupation of Bosnia. REPORTS current at Constantinople, that negotiations are proceeding for the cessioii of a portion of the Syrian coast and the Island of Tenedos to England, are denied both by the Porte and the British Ambassador. Persistent rumours are afloat, however, that negotiations, the object of which is known only to the two Governments, are being carried on between England and Turkey. 0 ORDERS are stated to have been given by Osman Pasha on Saturday to discontinue the entrenchment works on the lines defending Constantinople, all probability of a conflict with the Russians having passed away. A SERVANT-GIRL, named Mary Ann Brown, aged 18, was charged, at the Bow-street Police- court, on Saturday, with stealing a quantity of wearing apparel, the property of Miss Bella Goodall, the actress. The prisoner was taken into custody, smartly-dressed in the prosecutrix's clothes. She offered no defence, and was remanded for further examination. THE banquet given to Lords Beaconsfield and Salisbury by Conservative lords and commoners, on Saturday evening last, was numerously attended. The Duke of Buccleuch presided.: In responding to the toast of his health, Lord Beaconsfield said he shared the conviction of the noble duke that the result of the labours of the congress had been received with satisfaction by the country. But that satisfaction was not unanimous, and the policy of the Government was challenged. It was charged against them that they had deceived Greece; but in point of fact the Government had endeavoured to influence Greece by good advice. Lord Salisbury's proposition for the rectification of the Greek frontier included all that a sensible, and moderate man could desire, and congress ultimately adopted it. Referring to the convention of Constantinople, the Premier denied that the responsibility of England was thereby increased; on the contrary, he maintained that the convention diminished our responsibility, because, whatever ministry might be in power, it would eventually see the necessity of preventing the conquest of Asia Minor by Russia. He was astonished to learn that the convention had been described as an insane one. He believed that in that policy lay the seeds of future welfare, not only for England, but for Europe and Asia. The Marquis of Salisbury observed that probably no ministry had ever passed through a difficult crisis of foreign affairs amidst such a storm of abuse as the present Government had encountered. Among other speakers were the Lord Chancellor and the Chancellor of the Exchequer. OPERATIONS were on Friday resumed at the Eurydice, and in consequence of the time of tide flowing the work was continued until late in the evening. The Pearl and Rinaldo were successful, and the Eurydice was lifted and brought a. quarter of a mile nearer the shore. Two or three more lifts are yet reckoned before the wreck will be enabled to be pumped out and towed into harbour. On Friday the hammock nettings of the ill-fated ship could be clearly seen below water. If the weather continues fine the work will be continued every day. Saturday's operations resulted in the removal of the vessel a distance of three- sixteenths of a mile, into 33ft. of water. THE MARQUIS OF, LORNE, son-in-law of the Queen, eldest son of the Duke of Argyll, and M.P. for Argyleshire, has been appointed governor-general of Canada, in succession to 0 Lord Duiferin. The office is worth £ 10,000 a year and a residence. WHEAT-CUTTING is becoming general in the English Counties; the crop is said to have improved wonderfully in many parts of the country during the past month. Previous unfavourable reports as to the barley crop are generally confirmed. In many places, rain is needed for roots and aftermath. Oats and beans promise fairly..

THE MENAI BRIDGE EISTEDDFOD.—-The programme of this eisteddfod, which is to be held on Tuesday, the 6thinst., and the thre following days, is just like the programme of a national eisteddfod, as to the variety and la1 ge extent of the subjects contained therein. The conductors will be the Rev. Evan Jones, Carnarvon, i Clwydfardd, Llew Llwyvo, and Andreas o Fon. A grand concert will be held each evening. We have no doubt but that this will be a very popular and successful gathering. COMPETITION. This district has during the last few weeks been quite enlivened, consequent upon the hospitality and generosity of Mr. George Edwards, Trevor House. For several successive evenings the fife and drum bands have been very liberally entertained by that gentleman, who has also offered a prize for competition between our bands. The competing bands were formed of local amateurs, who having the liberty of choos- ing adjudicators, requested Messrs. E. Bryan and H. Davies, of Trefynant Works, to decide the question of supremacy between them. The competition was fixed for Saturday last at seven o'clock in the beautiful grounds of Trevor House and long before that time a vast crowd had assembled to witness the contest. The adjudicators decided to test the skill of the respective bands by calling upon them to play four tunes each and alternately, which being done, Mr. E. Bryan in English and Mr. Davies in Welsh, after dilating upon the respective merits of each party, awarded the prize to the Trevor band, and on the adjudicators expressing the pleasure of finding so much skill displayed by the Cefn band, Mrs. Edwards generously came forward and presented a second prize to them, which action, together with the presentation of the first prize by Miss Jacks, of Bromley Hall, and the offer of another prize by Mr. Edwards, to be competed for in six weeks, was loudly cheered. The expression of appreciation through- out has. been very great towards the promoter of the contest, and praises were very loud, con- sequent upon the very many tokens given by Mr. Edwards of good feeling towards his poorer neighbours. On Monday week the Vron Club? and on Monday last the Oddfellows Lodge of Cefn Mawr were very liberally entertained at Trevor House. Also, on Wednesday evening last, the AcrefairPhilharmonic Society, numbering between 70 and 80 voices, were very hospitably treated. The society, under the leadership of Mr. Gabriel, sang several fine selections in English and Welsh and Miss Jacks, of Bromley Hall, gave a few sweet selections on the pianoforte. Before the choir dispersed, Mr. Edwards made a few very kind remarks with reference to the prosperity of these institutions among the working classes. A very hearty vote of thanks was moved by Mr. M. Evans and sup- ported by Mr. W. Edwards, Delph Brickworks, and very loudly supported by the members of the society. We may say that the district at large holds a very grateful feeling towards Mr. Edwards for his large-heartedness. Every denomination, more or less, have been recipients of his goodwill and support to their building funds; and every institution among the working classes of this neighbourhood have had their subscription list headed by this well-known name. THE TRAINS for August, as far as the Ruabon and Dolgeliey line is concerned, will run as in June and July. BAPTIST TEA PARTY.—On Monday afternoon, the children of the Welsh Baptist Sunday school, who were too young to join the trip to Rhyl, were treated to tea at the Schoolroom. The tea-makers were the following:—Mrs. Jones, Poplar House; Misses Roberts, Grapes Hotel; Miss R. Jones,PlasGeraint; and Mrs. J. Edwards, Market-street. The tea and provisions were prepared by Mr.. Hiram Davies. Every one of the juveniles and others having regaled them- selves to their hearts' content, they proceeded to Mr. Edmunds' field near the goods station, where they amused themselves in different games till dusk, after which all returned highly pleased with their entertainment. The weather was brilliant. MR. AND MRS. FREDERICKS' ENTERTAINMENT.— This entertainment came off on Monday evening last, at the Assembly Rooms. Mrs. Fredericks represents. no less than twenty different characters in one evening with marvelous rapidity. There was some parts acted very good, but on the whole they did not come up to the mark of the best entertainers of the day as they style themselves. The audience was not large. ENTERTAINMENT.-—In our advertising columns, our readers will find an announcement of a wonderful performance to take place during next week in this town. TRIP TO BARMOUTH.—Yesterday, (Thursday) morning,about 5 o'clock,many of of the inhabitants were alarmed at hearing the bells of the Parish Church ringing at that early hour. Several parties got up to their windows imagining that there was fire, but no sign of it could be seen through the mist that prevailed. It appears that the object of the early chime was to arouse the church choir, who intended to join the Ruabon Church excursion train for Barmouth. Llantysilio, Eglwyseg, and Glyndyfrdwy choirs, also joined it. The train, consisting of about 16 carriages, arrived at the station at 6 45 a.m. Very few except the church people themselves knew any- thing about this excursion, there being no bills printed, hence the consternation on account of the bell-ringing. TREVOR TEA PARTY.—This tea party was held near the Trevor Independent Chapel on Wednes- day last. Two boatsful of the Llangollenites went there. The weather being so fine, the affair turned out very successful. The children and others repaired, to a held. near the river side, kindly lent by Mr. Edwards, Sun Inn, where they enjoyed themselves mightily. The first boat, conveying the younger children and guardians, returned about half-past eight, the other boat returning about ten o'clock. All were highly delighted. ELISEG FRIENDLY SOCIETY.-This renowned and old-established club held its 112th anniversary on Friday last. As usual, a procession was formed near the Eagles Inn, about 2 o'clock. After marching through several streets headed by the celebrated New Cambrian Slate Quarry's Brass Band Glynceiriog, the members entered the Welsh Wesleyan Chapel, where an elaborate sermon was delivered by the minister, the Rev. D. A. Williams. The service being concluded, the procession was again formed, and after walking several more of the streets the members retired to the Assembly Room to partake of an excellent dinner prepared by Mr. and Mrs. Pughe in their usual capital style. BATTALION DRILL.—On Monday last, the 29 th of July, a battalion drill took place at James's Farm, Wynnstay, Ruabon. There were present about 350 volunteers of all ranks. Our local corp numbered 63. In the course of the evening Sir W. W. Wynn commanded the battalion through a variety of field movements, skirmishes, &c. Ultimately, however, when drilling was over, the different companies, were invited to a substantial luncheon provided by Mr. Murless, Wynnstay Arms Hotel, Ruabon. ENGLISH WESLEYAN SUNDAY SCHOOL.—On Tuesday last, the annual pic-nic in connection with this school was held as usual On Coedterfyn hill. The children together with the teachers, and a large number of friends were conveyed by boat from the canal wharf to a spot near Bryntysilio, where a splendid tea was served out by Mr. Robert Roberts, Mill-lane, the company meanwhile being seated on the green sward beneath the spreading foliage of the trees. The repast being over, a portion of the party scrambled up to the summit of the hill where a magnificent view of the surrounding country is to be obtained. Others less ambitious strolled to Llantysilio churchyard, weir, &c., to enjoy the rich and varied scenery of this most romantic spot. Ultimately, however, the party congre- gated on the same spot, where a number of songs were sung, and a most appropriate and interesting address delivered by the Rev. Watkin Jones, Didsbury College. The "sail" along the canal on the homeward journey was enlivened by music, and about 9 o'clock in the evening, the proceed- ings of this most enjoyable day were brought to a close. The weather throughout the day was brilliant. Too much praise cannot be given to Mr. J. P. Richards, the respected and hard working superintendent of the school for the admirable arrangements made for the comfort of the whole party. RAINFALL AT PLAS BERWYN. in. parts Number of days on wliick-rain fell. May 6-14 17 June 3'53 14 July 1-50 7 EXCURSIONS.—On Monday last, excursion trains arrived here from Manchester, Liverpool, and Chester, conveying a goodly number of persons. Also, on the same day, two excursion boats landed a large number of passengers on the canal wharf, who had enjoyed a delightful voyage from Ellesmere. They were favoured with brilliant weather and made their homeward journey in the evening, when they seemed fully satisfied with the speculation of the day. PETTY SESSIONS, Tuesday, July 30th.—Before Col. Tottenham, W. C. Yale, Esq., Major Tottenham, Capt Dickin, and Capt. Barnes. Casual License.—Mr. T. J. Davies, Bridge End Inn, Llangollen, applied for a day license to supply a pic-nic party, composed of two clubs from Wrexham, with spirits, beer, and tobacco, at the Smithfield, Llangollen. The same was granted for the hours between half-past twelve and half-past eight o'clock on the day specified. Renewal of Game Licence.— Mr. Thomas Rogers, Berwyn-street, Llangollen, applied in the person of his wife for the renewal of the game license held by him.—The bench granted the same with a caution to be particular from whom he buys his game. Adjourned Cases of Non-attendance at Board Schools.—These cases were adjourned for a month in order to give the parents time to prove by medical certificates the indisposition of their children to attend school but, as neither William Roberts, weaver, nor Walter Davies, of Penllyn, both of Llangollen, were able to produce certificates to this effect, both Roberts and Davies were fined 6d. and 4s. 6d. costs each.
