I » Board of Trade Prosecution. At Penarth Police-court on Monday Mr Thomas Wood, master of the ship Wyanstay, was charged with contravention of the Carriage of Gram Act, 1880. Mr Ivor Vachell appeared to prosecute on behalf of the Board of Trade, and Mr J. J. Handcock (Messrs Downing and Haudcock) defended. Mr Vachell, in opening, said the vessel was loaded in the Black Sea with a cargo of maize, bound for Cork. The hold was divided into four compartments, Nos 2, 3, and 4 of which were properly loaded and trimmed. No. 1 was not properly trimmed, and the amount of space left without grain would hold from between 40 and 50 tons- Mr Andrew Frederick Weir, surveyor of the Board of Trade at Cork, said he boarded the vessel on the 27th December last, and discovered in No. I compart- ment a space of one foot from the inside of deck to the top of the grain. The space incieased towards the bulkhead, and he should think there was sufficient room for about 40 tons. He should say that No. 1 compartment could not have been full when the vessel left the port of calling. Mr Handcock here elicited Lhe fact that the cargo from all the holds was being discharged when wit- ness visited the vessel, and that grain had been taken from No. 1 compartment. Mr Vachell remarked that after this statement it would be useless to go on with the case. The Bench agreed, and the defendant was dismissed.
The Beef was Tempting. At the Penarth Police-court on Monday morning (before Mr S. Batchelor, Mr T. R. Thompson, and Major Thornley) John Jaferake, engineer's steward, was charged with stealing two pieces of salt beef from the steamer Reindeer, lying in the graving dock at Barry on the 20th inst. Dock-constable James Mayled deposed to seeing the defendant with a carpet bag at tie dock, and on opening the same he found about 151bs of salt beef, which he said the cook of the Reindeer had given him. Evan Hole, the cook of the Reindeer, said he did not give the beef to defendant, who was employed on board the steamer. Ths keys found on defend- ant fitted the locker where the beef wis kept. Fined 10s and costs, or 14 days' hard labour-
The Poetry of the Future. [Written for that journal of diurnal occurrences, vcleped the Western Daily Press, and dedicated to the orthographic authors of my Bse-iug.]' To Bee, or not to Bee, that is the question." Rae iimbetit-somnol ent, upon my couch tetragonal, Tenebrious nighi's lugubrious mantle spread, n The mechanism horological, with case hexagonal, C, 0 Monotonously oscilliates above my head. Then through my phrenological development Electrically passed a wird, strange dream, A change of psychological envelopment C. 1:1 In fact a metempsychosis t'would seem. Primarily, a Leviathan vast I rolled In preadamite ocean's vast abyss; Then as a mighty ichthyosaurus strolled By lakes primeval in phlegmatic bliss. Cycles immense passed of the world's cosmogony, And buoyant on the circumambient a;r, I, floating, gazed on nature's physiognomy, 11 Philosophizing on the rhythmic beauty there. Phytivorous flocks 'neath branches corymbiferous, In the exuberance of comfort lay While sounds euphonical, scents odoriferous, Blended beneath Sol's meridional ray. Progressing still, the world in its gyrations 1 t5 Has left the pre-historic periods far behind, And legislation's ratiocinations Have developed the mighty power of mind. Physicians now of ipecacuanha, In Latin phraseology, prescribe For cold or phthisis—but the ancient manner Whate'r disease you happen'd to describe- Paraphrenitis, paralysis, or cancer- Phlebotomy they would panegyrize, As paramount to any other plan, air, Save hydrophobia, which they cauterize. I must conclude; I'm getting hydrocephalus, And rather hyperbolical I fear; I may become cachectic and cadaverous, And cacodemon's cachinnation hear. I'm a plain man and speak in language simple; How such a dream arose I cannot say But 'neath my head (whicb some folks call a pimple) All night a Walker's dictionary lay-
A Penarth Nigger Fight. DBSPERATE FRACAS AB3ARD SHIP- LAID LOW WITH A CAPSTAN BA3. About one o'clock a.m. on Monday a desperate* quarrel arose aboard the ss. Talisman, now lying in Penarth Dock, between two negroes, both able sea- men. named William Brown and Joseph Johnson. During the encounter it is alleged that the former struck the latter on the head with a capstan bar caus- ing horrible injuries and concussion of the brain. Dr Aitken was summoned, and upon arrival found John- son's wounds to be of such a serious nature as to nacessitate his immediate removal to the Hamadryad jphither he was conveyed and detained- Subsequently Brown was arrested by Sergeant Morris and P.C. Hawkins, and was charged at Mr Morris's office, Cardiff, on Tuesday with maliciously assaulting and wounding Johnson with a capstan bar, thereby doing grievous bodily harm. The prisoner was remanded.
Penarth Philharmonic Society. At Andrews' Large Hall, on Sunday night last, a sacred musical service was held, under the auspices of the above-named society, for the benefit of the relict and family of the late Mr Alfred Smith, who was recantly burnt to death at the Penarth Steam Laundry. The hall was crowded. The Rev W. Wallace presided, and was supported by the Presi- dent of the Society (Mr Joseph Lace), who at the- outset expressed a wish that no unseemly enthusiasm would manifest itself among the audience. The choir, numbering nearly 100, under the baton of Mr Alfred S. Jones, organist and choirmaster of the Trinity Wesleyan Chapel, gave a very creditable performance, the accompanist being Mr Albert E* Jones, organist. etc., of the Arcot-street Wesleyan Chapel, and Mr Bert Hallett- Interspersed were solos by Miss Emily Francis, of the renowned Royal Welsh Ladies' Choir, and Mr J. F. Proud, conductor of the Cardiff Blue Ribbon Choir. The former sang in her sweetly inimitable manner, 61 With Verdure Clad," and the latter Gounod's For Ever with the Lord and a Rejoice Judah." He alson sang a duet with MrGarston entitled. "N ow we are Ambassadors. It id almost needless to add that Mi- Proud's services were a sine gua non to the evening's musical delecta- tion. En passant, it must be mentioned that the choir sustained its reputation, and Mr A. S. Jones is to be felicitated thereon. Mr Lace, in his presidential address, in referring to the sad disaster whereby Mr Smith lost his life, made a special appeal for Mrs Smith and her large family. God's providence .vas, indeed, inscrutable, but they had His assurance that the widow and orphans were His ppecial care- The collection realised .£10. Un stinted praise is due to the accompanists and conductor, choir, and solo- artistes for their gratuitous services.
Development of Penarth. A DRY DOCK TO BE CONSTRUCTED. The Taff Vale Railway Company have long had in view the necessity for a second entrance to their dock at Penarth, in case of collisions or accidents which occur rendering the existing entrance temporarily use- less. This would, according to engineering authority, involve the expenditure of a large amount of capital, which would be practically unproductive. We under- I stand, however, that the directors of the Taff Vale Company have overcome the difficulty by making ar- rangements for the construction of a dry dock to the westward of the existing entrance to the Penarth Dock, and extending southwards towards the channel. The Taff Vale Company have taken a lease of the ground now occupied by the Penarth Ferry Company, upon which engineering shops will he erected. The Taff Company were bound to give !)0 days' refusal of this portion of the foreshore to the Penarth Shipbuild- ing Company, who hive declined the option. The- dry dock will be 650ft by 80ft. and sufficiently large to take any vessel which can go into the Penarth Dock. A company ia being formed for the purpose of coustrcting the dock, and the concessionaries have- been given until the end of February to prepaie an offer tothe Taff Vale Company for the ground de- fined by them. With a strong directorate of ship- owners the company should pro-re a profitable invest- ment. As it will be connected with the basin of the Penarth Oock, the newi dock will afford another entrance in case of emergency.
