LLANTRISANT. On Monday, Llantrisant, even for a festive day, was unusually festive. Whit-Monday was very longingly ex- pected, and very happily spent by three-fourths of the population. The procession by the Druids perhaps takes precedence in the attention of the 'loungers and holiday- seekers. This year, our correspondent says, they were unsuccessful in procuring the services of a goat, though messengers were sent foraging in every direction. No mounted Druids were to be seen either, but for all these slight drawbacks, the Druids in their half savage half civilized dress, promenaded the principal streets of the town, and then visited many gentlemen's seats in the neighbourhood. The Llantrisant Brass Band, under the able leadership of Mr. Richard Martyn, added consider- ably to the effect. On the mountain the usual number of sight-seers and pleasure-seekers were gathered to- gether, and blindfold races, jumping'in sacks, &c., took place. The Ivorites and the Oddfellows also had their processions. A meeting of the colliers employed by the Powell Llan- twit Colliery Company took place on Wednesday morning. Being strictly private no certain information can be given, but it is understood that the night men want more money or less work. GOOD NEWS FOR LLANTRISANT.—We hear from reliable authority that the Dowlais Iron Company is negotiating for the purchase of the Bute Hematite Ircn Ore Mines at Llantrisant. A landowner in the neighbourhood has been applied to for 50 acres of land on which to erect steel works, &c. This must infuse new life into the old borough, and cause it to hold with greater tenacity than ever to the privileges it possesses, in view of occupying, once more, a position worthy of a town whose church is under the protection of three saints.
