After a few remarks Ï, om the chairman, the Rev. A. J. H. Russell (the secretary) read the Esport, which referred to the meetings that had een held in connection with the society during the year, and also to the position of the society as regards the number of members. These remained •bout the same as last year, but the position of Ihe branch was a Tery satisfactory one, and the meetings held in connection witii it had been well attended, and the proceedings appeared to excite general interest. Mr Marks, the treasurer, read the report, and from this it appeared that the rece pts for the year had met the expenditure, and left a small balance in hand. Thanks were given to the officers and committee, after which addresses were delivered by the vicar and others. GLAMORGAN MISSION TO THE DEAF AND DUMB. —The tenth anniversary of the Deaf and Dumb Mission commenced on Sunday afternoon, when a public service was held in Great Frederick-street Chapel, conducted by the pastor, the Rev. J. Cyuddylan Jones. The Rev. A. Tilly preached an eloquent and instructive sermon from Mattb. 12, 37, alluding in a feeling manner to the deprivation of the de if-mntes present, and 8Iltreatin the sympathy and liberality of the public in behalf of the mission. Mr Rowland then delivered an address in the sign language to his flock, which was afterwards read by the Re f. Oynddylan Jones, and proved to be an address admirably suited to those for whom it was in- tended. A collection was then made on behalf of the mission funds, which realised £4 Os 3d. On Sunday evening a sermon was preached on behalf of the Mission at the Tabernacle Chapel, Hayes, and the collections amounted to S2 3s 2Jd. On Monday evening the public meeting was held at the schoolroom of the Charles-street Congregational Church. His Worship the Mayor occupied the chair. The attendance was not rood, considering the cause involved. During the gvening a statement of account was read, showing that in 1877 a balance £27 9s 3d was in hand in 1878 it had decreased to £17 Os 4d, and this year it only reached J67 ;3.3 9d. The salary of the indefati- gable missionary, Mr E. Rowland, was £90, and this sdded to the expense involved by travelling expenses of the missionary, printing, etc., brought the expenditure of the mission to 88 6d, the overplus of £15 we have mentioned being characterised by Mr Cory as extremely moderate, and not commensurate with the great good done by Mr Rowland.— The Kevs Dr Thomas, late of Pontvpool College; N. Thomas, Tabernacle, and G. A. Russell, Cardiff and Messrs Wait and G. W. Armstrong, Cardiff, Spoke during the evening, appealing for support ia this good cause, and extolling the qualities of the missionary. Mr Rowland then addressed his flock in the sign language, and it was afterwards interpreted to the more lucky of the congregation. The address incidentally stated that he (Mr Row- land) had, to provide them their usual feast, first gone to the house of Mr M'Connochie, when4 half- sovereigns were immediately given him. Mr for- bett instantly furnished him with free admissions to the Castle grounds and Mr Eiliott had pro- mised as many dozens of pop" as they would like to have. He hoped to live a few years longer, when the good he would be enabled to achieve would be greater, aided as it would be by the results «f experience. A collection was made at the close ja aid of the cause, and it was intimated by gen- tlemen present that they would use their influence te secure to Mr Rowland free passes on the Jihymney and Taff Vale Railways. There are about fifty deaf-mutes under Mr Rowland's care, and the mission is progressing as favourably as possible, considering the funds in hand, A collection was made in aid of the mission fund realising S2 10s. On Monday afternoon about 20 deaf-mute members of the mission were gener- ously entertained to tea at Oscar House by Mr R. Cory, junr., treasurer of the mission. The pio- nic of the deaf mute members of the Mission took place on Tuesday, when 16 adult deaf mutes, aud i" few friends, including the Rev W. and Mrs Watkins, went to Caerphilly. The kindness of Mr J. M'Connochie had supplied the missionary with funds for the party's dinner and tea, and as the day was fine the deaf and dumb enjoyed themselves in a way that seldom falls to their lot. DIPHTHERIA.—At the borough'police-court, on Woud iy, Dr Paine, the medical officer of health, ittended, and expressed surprise that a summons igaiust a Mr Thomas for nuisances had been )djourned for a week. He said some time ago, in consequence of four cases of diphtheria having been reported to him, and which had arisen from the defective state of the house sewers, allowing the escape of sewer gas, in a house belonging to Mr Thomas, and the defects in the draining, he had notices served upon the parties to remove the nuisances, but up to the present time nothing hitd been done. It was a most serious matter. Tie lives of people were placed in jeopardy, and yot no attention had been paid to the notices served. He was anxious that the public should understand t; at so far as he was concerned their health was being protected. He wished the public also tj understand that these notices were not trivial matters, but should be attended to at once when issued. The summons alluded to by Dr Paine had been adjourned for a week, to enable the work required to be carried out, and this had been done on the application of the inspector of nuisances. BUUTTLABY AT SCHOOL. — Late on Sunday night some persons forced open a window at the back of Howell's school, and entered the store-room. They removed three sides of bacon, and from the yard several tools and articles of little value. MiNCB CANONKY, LLANDAFF.—The Dean has appointed the Rev.

CARDIFF PROPRIETARY SCHOOL.—In the recent Government competitive examination for the appointment of engineer students in Her Majesty's dockyards, W. K. Williams, of Alexandra Villas, Castle-road, a member ef the above school, was one of the successful candidates, being 24th in order of merit. Forty studentships were awarded. There were several hundreds of competitors from all parts of the kingdom. MIDSUMMER MORNING SERVIOE AT BETHANY CHAPEL.—On Tuesday morniag the annual mill. tfUwmer morning service, LOW quite an institution, was neld in Bethany Chapel. The service was speci dlv intended for young people of both sexes, and, in order to enable those engaged in business to attend, seven o'clock was fiked as the hour of commencing. By that time a very fair cougrega- tion, consisting chiefly of young men and young women, had assembled in the area of the chanel. The response to his invitation must have been gratifying to the Rev W. E. Winks, who, before coming to Cardiff, held for nine years similar services in Wisbeach. The pulpit, the gas branehes, which here afford a capital oppor- tunitv for the tasteful decorator, and the platform table had been decorated with flowers and wreaths of greeu leaves thus adding to the cheerful ap- pearance of the chapel. A few hymns, in which the congregation heartily joined, were suntr, the Rev. W. E. Winks engaged in prayer, and then came a short and appropriate address from the Kime rev. gentleman. He selected for hia text the Word which occur in the Sermon on toe Mount, U Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all other things will be added onto yon," He pointed wut how suitable these words were to the young, for none could carry khem out so well aa they; no one could obey the Injunction properly—"Seek ye first the Kingdom pi God"—unless by beginning in early, life. Speaking of the charm which religion had to the r&uns when truly, fully, honestly, and fairly put pefore them, he clearly pointed out that whilst sin If as the road to sorrow, religion was the road to Toy and happiness in this world and that which is to come. Millions had testified to the truth of the promise. But religion could not be enjoyed at all unless they enjoyed it most of all. If they settled any question in life before this they would suffer. To seek the Kingdom of God first was to make the present happy and the future safe. If this were done a young man or a froung woman was equipped for life and prepared W eternity. All other things would be added all other things besides those of religion were best secured by setting religion first. This, Mr Winks said, was Droved from experience, and he spoke tf what he had himself observe in the world in j Eioai of the statement. About 150 partook of reakfast afterwards in the schoolroom attached to the chapel. Table decoration had been paid particular attention to. It ought to be meatiored that tho work of decorating the c'n pel was carried out by the young ladies at Miss Tuilis's .school._ j COFFEE AXDCOCOATAVISRXCOMPAXY.—A meeting of the friends and supporters of a company in pro- cess of formation for the establishing of coffee and cocoa taverns at Cardiff, was held at the otiices of Mr Alexander Bas^ett, Church-street, on Tuesday, Mr C. Thompson in the chair. There were pre- sent—the Revs. C. J. Thompson, G. A. Jones, J. Waite, B.A.. Messrs Lewis Williams, J. A. Ie Bo-danger, P. Price, and J. O. Riches: Mr Hamilton, solicitor for the company, and A. iiassett, the hou. sec. pro tern. It was stated that 1,730 shares had been taken, aud there was every probability that the 5,000 shares would soon be taken up. The articles of association were considered, but eventually adjourned for further consider to a, special meeting, to be convened for Thursday next. It was resolved that the directors should be chosen from shareholders holding 25 shares, and the following gentlemen were selected directors to hold office until the first meeting of shareholders after the formation of the company ;-1\Ir .J.

R. Vachel!, M.B,, house-aurgeon J. E. Brogden, secretary. WATCH COMMITTEE. — On Wednesday, the monthly meeting of the watch committee was held in the Council-clumber. In the unavoidable absence of the Mayor Alderman Evans was voted to the chair. There WM a large attendance of mem- bers.—Chief-Constable Hemingway presented'his monthly report, in which he stated that Captain Willis, the Government Inspector of Police, would inspect the force at 12.30 that day in the markd, and he would be glad to see as many members of the Council present as could attend. Inspector Lewis reported P.C. Helston (18) with having been drunk whilst on duty, in Bute.road, at midnight of the 14th. The constable was called in, and admitted that he was drunk when found by Inspector Lewis. In reply to a member, the Deputy-Clerk stated that the constable had pre- viously been fiued once for neglect of duty, but not for drunkenness. Councillor Shackell asked if the constable had given any explanation. Chief-Constable Hemingway Yes, the usuil ex- planation met a gentleman with a bottle iu his pocket. (A laugh.) A proposition was made and seconded, that the constable be fined three days' pay. An amendment was proposed, that he be reduced to the fourth class for six months. On a division the amendment was lost by 12 to 8.—Councillor Evans said he wished to call attention to a practice which was becoming general, and which, he feared, was becoming a great nuisance—viz., the blowing of horns in the streets. He was informed that the association of milk sellers contemplated blowing horns, and if that was so the practice would become a very serious nuisance. If the Council had any power they should exercise it.—The Chairman If they are allowed to blow trumpets, they will be blow- ing all day.—Councillor Rees The new Act gives YOll the necessary power to deal with such a nuisance. I do not think you are in a position to do anything now.—The Chairman remarked that the new Act came into force on the 1st of August. —Chief-constable Hemingway said that 12 months ago he did summon a person for blowing a horn, and the Stipendiary declined to convict, as he had no power. The late Mr Cousins was, he under- stood, also summoned, and the costs of an appeal in1 that case cost the Corwration, he was in- formed, £ 200.—Alderman Wiustone More than that.—Councillor Rees considered that the com- mittee should relegate to a sub-committee the duty of drawing up scale of pains and penalties, to be inflicted upon such constables as had just been before them when they committed any offence, It did not appear to him to be dignified on the part of the committee to inflict one punish- ment that day, and another a month hence. He proposed that a committee should be appointed, consisting of Aldermen Evans and Elliot, and Councillors Jacob, D. Jones, and rhoroas & vans. —The Chairman was opposed to the formation of a sub-committee for the purpose mentioned, con- sidering that each case should be taken on its merits.—Councillor Cory seconded the proposition. —Councillor Loughor proposed, and Councillor Treseder seconded, that the committee deal with all cases as heretofore.—Upon a division the amendment was carried by 17 to 3.—A conversa- tion, initiated by Councillor Shackell. followed as to the placing of an extn policeman at the ceme- tery during the next couple of months, when it would be opened from 2.30 to 8 The macter was left in the hands of the chief constable, aud the business of the committee terminated. INSPECTIOK OF THE BOROUGH POLICE FORCE.— The annual inspection of the Cardiff Police Force was made in tho Market-house on Wednesday, by Captain Willis, the Government inspector. There wre on parada the head constable, three inspec- tors, one detective officer, nine sergeants and 61 constables, two inspectors, one detective, one ser- geant, and 10 constables being on duty, only one constable being sick; making a total of 90 men. The Hea 1-ccnstable put the men on parade through the usual police driL, with which Captain Willis seemed well pleased. He was also pleased with the appearance of the men, who mustered for the first time this year in their new uniform, He, however, did not consider the quality of the cloth so good as that supplied last year. The police were, he said, a fine body of men, and they also seemed to be very efficient; and he should report accordingly. He then proceeded to the new police- station, where he examined the police books and records, and said- that he was perfectly satisfied with the manner in which they were kept. He inspected the office of the Head-constable, the offices for the police, and the cells for the prisoners. All were extremely well kept, and the cells well arranged and lighted. A large number of the members of the Corporation attended the inspec- tion, as well as other residents of the town, and the Head-constable was complimented on the ex- cellent and eflicient force under his command. TRIAL TRIP OF A JSTEAMER.—The fine iron screw steamer Rose, built by Messrs Schlesinger, Davis and Co., of Wallsend, for Captain Peter Rowe, of Cardiff, had her trial trip on Monday off the mouth of the Tyne. The Rose, fully loaded, left the harbour early in the morning and pro- ceeded to sea, where her compass was adjusted. At a later hour a large party of gentlemen went on board. Amongst those present were Mr C. A. Schlesinger, Capt. Peter Rowe (of Cardiff), Capt. Quance. Capt. Turnbuil (who commands the ship), and several others. Her head was turned to the north, and her machinery was tested by a run along the coast and on the measured mile. Her engines, which are of the inverted direct-acting compound class, with cylinders of 28 and 53 inches diameter, with a stroke of 36 inches, gave universal satisfaction, the boat running at 9! knots easil V. The engines were supplied by Messrs Black, Hawthorn and Co., of Gateshead. The dimensions of the Rose are—Length between perpendiculars, 240 feet; breadth, 32 feet; and depth of hold, 18 feet 6 inches. She is classed 100 Al, under special survey, and is fitted with a Harfield's patent windlass on the forecastle. Every care has been taken for the comfort of the crew. A luncheon was served on board, and after "Success to the Rose" had been drunk, the visitors returned to the river by the tug, and the steamer proceeded on her voyage. IMPORTANT SALE OF HORSES.—On Wednesday, Mr D. T. Alexander, of the firm of Stephenson, Alexander, and Co., offered for sale, at the Queen's Chambers Horse Repository, Cardiff, a large num- ber of first-class horses. There were over 100 entries, and very seldom has such a large sale taken place in the towr. A number of horses were not sold, and perhaps this might be accoun- ted for by the large number and the consequent short space of time to be devoted to each. The advantagoes of such a repository were well de- monstrateJ. Taking a review of the sale and the prices, we may say that for ponies from JE12 up to £24 waa the ruling figure, perhaps, being a pretty fair average. Horses went at any price from 30 guineas up to 80 guineas, a large number fetching about 50 guineas, and a larger number 40 guineas. We should specially mention the price of 77 guineas, fetched by a black gelding, four years, IS hands, the proparty of Head-Constable Hemingway. A bay gelding, Prince, four years, 16 hands, clever hunter, the property of Mr Compton, was sold for 80 guineas. A chesnunt mare, six years, 16 hands, very fast, be property of Mr John Cory, fetched 60 guineas; and a bay cob gelding, four years, 14.1, belonging to Mr Bassett, Cowbridge, 68 guineas. The chesnut gelding, the Count, by Batthyany, six years, 16 hards, which had taken first prizes for hunters up to 14 stone, was sold for 70 guineas. A notable was the sale of a number of Irish horses. A geld- ing, five years old, of this breed, fetched 77 guineas; a dark grey gelding, five years, 15.3, 65 guineas a brown gelding, four years, 15.2, 57 guineas; a dark grey gelding, 60 guineas; and a brown mare, three years, 16 hands, 45 guineas. There were upwards of a dozen of this class of horses at the sale. The prices we have noted were about the highest given, the average price of the remainder being about 40 guineas. Mr Charles Moir, veterinary surgeon, had been specially re- tained as veterinary referee. A CARDIFF To COUNCILLOR'S TRIP TO CAL- IFORNIA.—Councillor Alfred Thomas lectured on Wednesday night in Star-streetChapel,Roath. The chair was occupied by Mr Lewis Williams, who feli- citiously introduced the lecturer, who at once entered upon his subject—"A trip to California." Having briefly described the vessel in which he made the passage to New York, Mr Thomas drew a series of amusing pictures of those on board, making a special note of Senator Bruce, of (MiaeissiDpi, who, because -of his colour, was practically tabosed by the American notabilities a-board. He graphically described New York and its surroundings, making special mention of the Hudson River—the Rhine of America. He spoke warmly of Canada, and particularised the leading towns between Detroit and San t rancisco. He pictured Omaha, on the Missouri, as a place specially deserving of men- tion, inasmuch as, although only a small city, its citizens had spent t50,000 on a high school. He eulogised the State of Nebraska for its natural wealth, and reported an interview with the Cattle King of the district, who owned 40,000 head of cattle and whose farm ran continuously for 140 miles in one direction. The lecturer having detailed the wonders of the Rocky Monntains, touched on the Mormon Settlement, and then made an interesting reference to the Red Indians. He was struck with the better feeling existing between the Indians on the Cana- dian frontier in comparison with that in the Indian reservations, but the explanation given him by a Canadian official was that they treated the Indians justly and fairly in Canada. Mr Thomas then traced at length the history and progress of California—making especial reference to its geld Had silver mines, aud to the position of Welshmen 1 within the Californian limits. The lecture was full of interest, ard the Chairman, at the close, expressed a Lope that Mr Thomas v. ould adapt his American experience to the municipal develop- meat of Cardiff. The usual votes of fcdanks were vociferously given, AT THE COUNTY COURT, on Wednesday, his Honour Judge Herbert gave judgment iu the case of Cretian T. Morell Bros,, heard at the last court, j Mr Vachell appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Downing for the defendants. The claim Wcia for £1611, three day3 demurrage. The plaintiff was the master of the ship Set Brin. The vessel arrived at Cardiff on the 31st December with a cargo of pitwood, delivered to the defendants, as the agents for the consignor. The plaintiff alleged that the cargo was unloaded very slowly, and as a result three days demurrage incurred, calculating the time that the unloading would have occupied had ordinary diligence beeu exer- cised. Mr Vachell then cited some cases iu which it was admitted ttnt the consignor was liable for demurrage, although there was no stipulation to the effect in the charter arty, when it could be provad that ordinary diligence was not 8hown in the delivery of the cargo. Mr Downing, among other objections, raised one that the defelllhnt ws an agent, and was not, therefore, liable for the demurrage. His Honour now held that as the defendant a as an agent he was not liable for the demurrage. Had this not being the case he should have given judgment for one day's demurrage. RO33.I:RY AT A BBOTHEL.—At the borough poMc.-court on Saturday—before the Mayor, Alderman T. Evans, and D. Jones—Sarah Jane Wool-iey, a woman of bad character, was charged with robbing Richard Gauntlett, the master of a vessel lying at the Cardiff Docks.—The complain- ant did not appear.—P.C.
