PENDRKF CONGREOATIOSAL CRUKCR LITERARY iNfEFT- ING.—Last Monday evening, Mr John Evans was voted to the chair, and Mr Hugh Williams, Arvonia Bui dings, was callei.i upon to read his essay on the Duty°of the Church toward the Cnildren." This egsay and one by Mr John Williams, Crescent, were equal in merit, winning the first prize in the last competitive meeting at Pendref. Mr Williams divided his subject into two sections, viz the reasons why it was the duty of the Church to succour the children, and the mode of performing that duty. Each section was again subdivided thus 1, on account ot the relationship existing between the children, the Church, and Chr:st, through baptism 2, on account of the notice taken of them, and encouragement gives. them in Scripture 3, because the Church is the medium ordained by the Lord to accomplish the work. 1, the Sunday school and other religious meetings 2, the litt'rary and other improvement societies 3, ad vice and example. The essay was compact, to the point, and couched in good language, and evidently bore the marks of careful study. A free discussion followed, when the following gentlemen spoke Messrs Ûw"n Williams, sen., T. Millward, John Parry, Evaii Jones, John Evans, R. Griffiths, and T. Mills. The general tone of the members' remarks was compli- mentary to Mr Hugh Williams. We are glad to be able to testify to the success and beneficial results of this society and with all our heart we wish them God speed.

CONSERVATISM.—The annual general meeting of the Bangor Working Men's Conservative Association was held on .Monday evening, at the rooms of the cinbin High-street, when the president, Mr R. H. Pritchard, occupied the chair. He reviewed the work of the association during the year, and said that the club was in a flourishing condition, there being a balance in the treasurer's hands of £1.3. The parlia- mentary revision, both iu the county and the boroughs, had given a Conservative gain, though not very large. The officers were then appointed. Mr R. 11. Pritchard, was re-elected president; Mr John Pritchard, vice-president; Mr D. Wynn Williams, secretary; and Mr T. Marks, honorary secretary.- A lecture was delivered at the National School, Garth-road, on Thursday evening, 22nd mutant, by Mr J. II. Bottomley, of the National Union of Con- servative Associations, London, the subject being Why I am a Conservative ? Mr R. H. Pritchard occupied the chair. THE LIBERAL ASSOCIATION.—The annual meeting of the Bangor Liberal Association was held on Tues- day evening, at the Queen's Head Cafe, Mr T. C. Lewis presiding. The secretary (Mr J. Richards) reported that the work of the Executive Committee ha.d during the year been taken up chiefly with registration work. On the county they were able to show a gain of eight, but, owing chiefly to the im- perfect or incorrect addresses, the same number had been lost on the borough iist. There were now 121,) subscribing members on the books of the association, and its financial position was fairly good.—The chairman, in moving the adoption of the report, said that the provision of a clubroom had also engaged the attention of the Executive Committee, who hoped before long to be able to secure suitable premises. The absence of such a ciubroom was greatly felt by the local Liberals. In this respect the Conservatives were well supplied, having two clubs, and it was high time the Liberals made a move in the matter and remedied the defect (hear, hear). Mr Henry Lewis seconded the motion, which was supported by Mr John Evan Roberts, and adopted.—On the motion of Mr Morgan Richards, Mr Thomas Charles Lewis was elected president, in succession to Mr John Roberts (Bryn Adda), who retired by rotation. The Rev. W. R. SaunOers and Mr John Thomas Jones, were elected vice-presidents; Mr W. Thomas, District Bank, Mr John Richards (Hataw), were respectively re-appointed treasurer and secretary, and an execu- tive committee of fifteen was elected.

Obsfructlf)I1.-A lad named Samuel Stringer was charged with causing an obstruction.— P.C. 10 stated that on the 2nd instant, a horse and vehicle ill charge of the defendant were allowed to stand in jjioh-street for half-an-hour, thereby causing an obstruction.—The lad's father said he had given strict orders to lus son not to obstruct, as be was well aware of the narrowness of the streers of Bangor, but he could not have a "stand' from the lessee of the Market Hall, or else he would not go about the streets. The Bench considered there had been an obstruction, but took a lenint view of and fined the defendant 2s 6d and costs. AUo'fd Awin't Cr<.<•• Adjovrned.—Mr Thornton Jow-s.'solicitor, asked that the case of Henry Lloyd Carter against Mr Haywood be adjourned. He ap- peared for the, bur he understood his friend Mr Dew, who defended, was not able to attend, and therefore he applied for an adjournment. —Granted. The Milkman and lis Chest of Gold.— Robert Jones, a young firm labour.-r. of Denbigh, was brought up in cu^t'idv charg ed v\ ith stealing £ 4, the monies of Eiiwar Kvans, a milkman at Lui.g n. Air Maieoint Dorglas, barrister, appeared for the p. isnner. T- The t -sccutor said l.e lo lged at JSo. 2, Sao'.vdoa View, Upper Bangor, and sold milk for Colonel Hughes of Ystrad, Denbigh. He knew the prisoner well. He saw him last on Friday night. He had been with witness from mid-day on Wednesday until Friday evening, and slept with him two nights. He had not got up at the same time as witness on either days. Witness had a chest in his bedrom, unlocked, and which contained £14. He had counted the money there on Tuesday evening, and again on Saturday he discovered only £ 10. It was in consequence of what his landlady told him that he counted the money on Saturday. Prisoner had told witness a little as to his mode of living at Carnarvon.—Cross-examined by Mr Malcolm Douglas: Prisoner used to be in the gam service as I was, and received about £1 a week. There were two other men sleeping in the room and occupy- ing another bed. I saved X14 in four months, my wages being :3s per week.—Mary Williams, 2, Snow- don View, Cpper Bangor, stated that the prosecutor lodged with her, and prisoner slept at her house twe nights the previous week. He used to get up at half-past ten for breakfast, and then go upstairs. She heard a noise as if the chest was being opened, and then heard it being closed again. On coming down she notieed that he looked "funny-like" and guillty.—P.C. 34 (Evan Evans) proved apprehending the prisoner at Denbigh. He said he knew nothing of the case, and that he was surprised at Edward Evans. Witness then took him to the police station, searched him and found fl 15s 14d upon him, and then he said: "I want to tell Edward Evans I am guilty." Immediately after that he said "I know nothing about the matter."— The defence was that there was no evidence.-The magistrates retired, and on their return Mr Pieree said they were unanimously of opinion there was no evidence in the case, and they wished to express that they found great fault with a man who left his money in such a loose open way, to which access could be had at all times of the day and night. It was a temptation to people, and really they could not sym- pathise with a person losing his money under such circumstances. Cruelty CaSlis.-David Jones. Ebenezer, was charged with working a horse whilst in an unfit state.— Inspector Temperlel, R.S.P.C.A., prosecuted. and proved seeing the defendant working a horse, which was suffering from two large sores under the collar, one on the off shoulder, and a large wound under the tall. Defendant was fined 2s 6d and costs.Robert Johnson, who did not put in an appearance, was charged with a similar offence.—Inspector Temperley said the horse was in a very poor condition, and was nothing but skin and bone."—Defendant was fined 10s and costs. (Before Mr Charles Pierce and Dr. Richards). Poaching Cases. — Strange Evidence. — William Hughes and Thomas Hughes, farm servants, were caarged with poaching.—Mr David Owen defended.— Arthur Still, game-keeper in the employ of Lord Penrhyn, stated that on Sunday, the 4th iust., he was near Tyddynheilyn farm, when he saw the two defen- dants coming up with a kind of sheep dog which was running after a hare. The men also chased the hare. The defendant William Hughes had either a, hare or rabbit in his hand. Witness could not say which, he being about 50 yards away. When defendants saw witness they ran towards, Tvddyn Llwvn. where he followed them.—Cross-examined by Mr Owen I told Air Roberts, Tyddyn Llwyn, that they were 16 yards from the boundary wall. If Mr Roberts comes to the box and says I said the defendants were on the boundary wall, he commits perjury. I did not use abusive language. I am not in the habit of curs ng or swearing. I cannot say I never did. I am told Thomas Hughes is Mr Roberts' bailiff.—Mr Owen submitted that the defendants never went over the boundary wall. It was the duty of the bailiff to go over the farm and the sheep dog invariably accompanied him. It appeared the dog did go over to Tyddynheilyn land, but the men did not. Mr Roberts was one of Mr Assheton Smith's tenants, whose cover was closely situated, and it would be a gross offence for any tenant to keep poachers on his land if he knew they were poachers.—Mr John William Roberts said he was the tenant or the Tyddyn Llwyn farm, owned by Mr Assheton Smith. On the day in question the keeper Still came to him and stated he had seen the dog after a hare on Tyddynheilym land, and that Wm. Hughes had run them after her. Wit- ness told him to summon him, and then asked where the men were, and Still said on the boundary wall." The gamekeeper had denied that he had ever used any bad language, but he (witness) never heard such expres- sions in his life as those made use of by Still, and it would be a wonder to him if Lord Penrhyn would keep him in his employ after this. Witness could bring scores of people to prove the bad language used by Still, and it was a great shame he should be allowed in the country, let alone with such a landlord as Lord Penrhyn. Thomas Hughes had been in witness' service for 11 years, and he never found any fault with him.— Mr Pierce: Will you please repeat what Still said to you about where the men were ?—Witness That they were on the boundary fence. That I am quite positive of. This boundary wall is six feet high, and it would be impossible to get over it in the manner described by Still, and it is an awful thing that a. man like this should be borne to stay in the country.—At this juncture, Mr W. Thompson, head gamekeeper to Lord Penrhyn, who watched the proceedings, 8aid. Still had been in Lord fenrhyn's employ for seventeen years, and had given great satisfaction.—Witness I can bring scores of people to prove the foul language he haa been usmg.—Mr Pierce The evidence in this same is very contradictory. The defendants have a ri ;ht to the doubt, and we dismiss the case.—Roderick Roberts and John Ellis, who did not appear, were fined 40, an,1 costs, or, in default,, one month's imprisonment with hard labour, for taking game on Lord Ptnrhyn's land.
