He was sent to gaol for two months—John Smith, a tramp, was sent to gaol, in default of paying a fine, for being drunk and behaving like a madman in Park-street. THE WEATHER.—The weather, which during last week was exceedingly fine for this season of the year, has now changed, and hailstones, snow, and bitterly cold winds are experienced for miles around. Miis HANNAN'9 COMPANY.-Thia excellent dramatic company, under the management of Mrs Hannan, of Wrexham, paid a visit to this town last Tuesday. In consequence no doubt cf the inclemency of the weather, the attendance was but limited, and Major Mainwaritig, under whose patronage the entertainment was held, was also for the tiame reason absent. However, in compli- ance with numerous influential requests, Mrs Hannan gve another ent jtainment on Wednes- day night, when a comparatively full hcuse was secured. The pieces played were "Nan, the good for nothing," and Lady Audley's Secret," Mrs Hannan in the last piece personating the principal part to perfection. The entertainment was a complete success, and we hope that Mis Hannan will comply with the numerous solicita- tions, and pay the town a visit in a short time again.

We understand that this is the first of a series of entertainments proposed to be given at the Asylum. REVIVAL MEETINGS.—The. Rev W. Roberts, of Abergela, still continues to hold revival meetings in thip town, and we are glad to see that his labours are not in vain.
