EARLY CLOSING AIOVE-NIE.NT. -An agitation is being got up by and in behalf of the tradesmen's assistants in town, to secure to the latter, if possible, the advantages of early closing. Circulars are being delivered to employers to urge the desirability of closing shops at seven o'clock, and on Thursday at five. LOCAL BOARD or HEALTH.—The ordinary meeting of this board was held on Thursday, when the Chairman, Mr. 11. H. Rhys was sufficiently recovered from his re- cent accident to resume the chair, but there was not much business to transact. The Surveyor reported that the bridge over the Cynon, at Robertstown, had broken down, through the collapse of a buttress and a letter was read from the Coroner on the dangerous character of this spot, a man having- been found drowned in the river, who was supposed to have fallen over here. No order was made upon the matter. The plan and estimate of the private improvement in Fforchaman-street were read and approved of, and, on the motion of the Chairman, they were ordered to be carried out, subject to some mo- dification of the line of the 12-inch sewer. The medical officer of health reported that since the 1st of January, and down to the 2nd of March this year, there had been 317 cases of small-pox in the parish, of which 44 had ter- minated fatally.
