SCHOOL FOR DEAF AND DUMB, LLANDAFF. — Mr. Melville begs most thankfully to acknowledge the receipt of a cheque fur £ 4 4s. lOd for this school being the col- lection at Thanksgiving Service at Trevithin"1 Church, per Rev. John C. Llewellin, M.A vicar. SHIP LAUNCH.—Messrs. Schlessinger Davis & Co. launched from their shipbuilding yard, Wallsend, New- castle-on-Tyne, on Saturday last, an iron screw steamer of about 1,100 tons, named the Cornwall.

SHORT TIME MOVEMENT.—The concession of nine hours and ten per cent, on piece-work sought by the cabinet-makers and upholsterers of Cardiff, has, we un- derstand, been conceddd by Mr. Daniel Lewis, of Duke- street. A strong hope is entertained that this step will be followed by a similar concession on the part of other employer?'. It is needless to say that the course pursued by Mr. Lewis is greatly appreciated by the members of the trade concerned. MUSICAL SERVICE AT SPOTTLAND.—-Last night a most interesting service of sacred song was performed at the Congregational Church. Splotland. The service was en- titled "The Pilgrim's Progress," and consisted of a large number of readings, and ahoral performauces-similar in character to the musical service performed at St. John's Church a few months ago. There wasa good attendance, and the gathering was presided over by the Rev. J. Waite,-B.A., who. with the Rev. T. Jenkins—the pastor of the church—read the prose portions of the service. The choral pieces were undertaken by the church choir under the leadership of Mr. R Price, and the manner in which he rendered the numerous songs was worthy of the highest commendation and afforded greatest satisfac- to all present. The enter1 ainment was of a most inter- esting character, and the performances, if generally adopted, will undoubtedly do much towards improving the character of congregational singing.
