A dinner of mnny delectable courses was served by Mr. and Mre. Geo. Bowen, which proved to be a model re past of its kind. 'Hie Chairman, in submitting the toast of the evening, slid he had known M. Adami long enough to join in the general appreciation of the esteem in which lie was held. He then handed M. Adami a purse of gold and an illuminated addrtss, which re- ferred to the genial character, goodness of heart, and kindly disposition which had won for the recipient the deep respect and lasting friendship of many.—Mr. Dowman, as an old friend, added a sincere expression of esteem, after which the toast was honoured with vo- cal and other enthusiasm.—M. Adami feel- ingly replied. He said that during the 12 years he had been in the neighbourhood he had been daily making friends, but he little thought they were going to give him such a tangible proof of their kindly regard. Al- though he had now left Craig-y-Nos, he hoped to settle in their midst. (Applause.) Councillor Tarr proposed the toast of "Mr. James Hughes and Mr. Bright," who had been mainly instrumental in organising the function, and booth gentlemen responded.— The toast of the "Host and Host- ess" was heartily honoured.—A very bright feature of the- enjoyable pro- ceedings was the musical programme, jn which the following took pat:—Mr. Albert Hanney's instrumental quartette; Messrs- T. H. Cheetham, J. Bateman, G. H. Bowen, H. Bartlett, G. H. Mayou, D. Richards,
