CEFN AND RHOSYMEDRE. THE PREVAILING DISTRESS.—Consequent upon the ex- treme depression of trade poverty seems to be much on the increase. The more fortunate inhabitants of the dis- trict fully sympathize with their poorer neighbours. Mr. H. Dennis, New Hall, last week gave each of his quarry- men 3 cwt. of coals and 2s. 6d. worth of flour. Work has been suspended in the quarries for seven weeks. On Monday hundreds of poor people were served with a large loaf of bread and 2 lbs. of bacon at Trevor House, the residence of Mr. George Edwards. The recipients were those persons reeommended by the ministers of the diffe- rent places of worship. The continued frost is much affecting the bride and tile business which is now the principal stay of this neighbourhood. The district is ex- tremely dull as entertainments, &c., have to be suspended in consequence of the general depression. THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS.—The new schoolroom is now in full use, and a large number of children are receiving instruction under the care of Mr. Grimshaw and Mrs. Roberts. Last week a harmonium, suitable to the require- ments of the school, was presented by Miss Edwards, the Vicarage. The room has been fitted up with gaseliers, and makes an admirable concert and lecture room. The Vicar and Committee still require funds to erect a boun- dary wall to the playground. TEMPERANCE MEETING.—On Wednesday evening, Jan. 15, a temperance meeting, which was well attended, was held in the Primitive Methodist Chapel, in connection with the Band of Hope. The chair was occupied by Mr. Samuel Lloyd. The following was the programme :— Chairman's address clarionet duet, Messrs. Daniels and Jones; speech, Mr. Robert Lloyd; piccolo solo, Free Church party (Messrs. John Davies, Edward Parry, W. Powell, and E. Tudor); recitation, Miss Lucy Grindley; song, Miss Jones; reading, Mr. Edwin Edwards; song, Mr. J. B. Cooke; glee, Messrs. J. Cunningham, Edwin Edwards, and W. A. Jones recitation, Mr. Lawson (Shrewsbury); song, Mr. J. B. Cooke; recitation, Miss Sophia Jones; song, Mr. George Crew.
