SALE AT CJWSS HOU.SE. —One of the most successful sales that have for many years taken place at L'tugharne. was conducted by Mr Henry Thomas at Cross House Inn on Monday last. Mr Beynon, who has for many years oil a very successful business hero, lately decided, on account of failing health, to retire from business, and to sell his stock and furniture. A very large number of friends came together early, and, contrary to the usual custom in these parts, they were not kept long waiting. Excellent prices were realized for everything that was sold, and we can most heartily congratulate botli Beynon and the auctioneer on the success of the sale.

Lewis, of Bron wast Farm. Owing to the recent death of a brother of the bridegroom, it was arranged that the wedding should be a very quiet one, hence r very few knew the hour that it had been fixed to take place, which was two o'clock. The bridegroom and the best man (Mr Evans, chemist) arrived at the church a few minutes before the time mentioned, and punctually at two o'clock the bride, leaning on her father's arm, walked up the aisle, followed by Miss George, the sistcrof the bridegroom, as brides- maid. The llev Joile3, late pastor of the church, and the Rev Owen Thomas, M.A., of London, uncle of the bride, officiated. A goodly number of friends, when they learned that- the wedding was taking y 11 place, congregated at the church door to express their good wishes to the happy pair as they were leaving fur J iron wast, and if showers of rice foreshadow a happy and prosperous life, theirs certainly will be eminently so. CONCERTS —On Tuesday, September 13th, a concert of a very high character was given by Messrs Williams and Sutclitfe, at the National Schoolroom.
