Notes and Comments. A Correspondent asks the question, Ts it right that those employed by the District Council should visit public houses daring business hours?" Of course that depends whether they go there for business pur- poses, or for the purpose of drinking. If for the latter, then all will agree it ought not to be done, and ratepayers would be perfectly justified in raising their voices against the practice. Our correspondent is satisfied that business has nothing to do with these occasional visits, and he feels it unjust that rate- payers should have to pay for time thus spent. We have no knowledge of who its referred to in the com- munication, but we would suggest that if there is anything wrong in the conduct of any of the Council's employees during business hours, that the Council be communicated with. and they will doubtless see that the evil is remedied. A waveoi strong temperance sentiment appears to be passing over Penarth. Not since the time when. the Blue Ribbon Movement was inaugurated many 1* years ago has there been evinced so much interest in the spread of total abstinence principles, as at the present time. Every organization seems to be i inspired to action, and all are now in the aggressive van, determined to make every effort to reach the fallen, and at the same time protect the young and virtuous from the snares which are set for them in every direction. The Good Templars are seeking to give effect to their obligation; the members of the British Women's Temperance Association are entering 0 upon a very important campaign the leaders of our Bands of Hope are seeking new methods to instruct and train the children in the way they should go; the temperance benefit societies are realising their responsibilities, and a new organization has sprung into existence, which will embrace all others, and at the same time seek to win individual members. With this new organization it is anticipated that all the Churches in the town and district will become, in a sense, federated. Every total abstaining minister is placed upon the roil of vice-presidents, and every Church is invited to elect a representative on the general committee of management. The total absti- pence question ought to receive the united support of the Christian Church, and by them it should be y recognised as one of its strong pillars. A special night will be selected for the holding of the public meetings of the Federation-the night which will be found to interfere the least with meetings and ser- vices of the Chribtian Churches, and this being the case, it is to be sincerely hoped that the Churches will realise the importance of the work of the Federation, and so arrange, as far as possible to recognise its fixed meetings as also a part and parcel of their work which must not be interfered with. If the Churches of Penarth can be brought to realise their responsi- bility in helping to reclaim the drunkard, and also to save the children from the powers of the drink curse, then there would be a revival-not, of temperance work only, but of Christian work, snch as has never been known for solidity in Penarth before. Efforts are now being made to increase the facilities for obtaining drink, and thus raising new barriers to Christian effort, and the question naturally arises, what are the Churches of the town doing to protect the people, the young especially, against the foe. Would that we could see them, as one, protesting against the introduction of new traps to catch the anwary. Their voices the magistrates could not withstand, but until that day arrives, or the power has been placed in the hands of the people, there will ba the danger of fresh licenses being granted. May the time soon come, when religion and total absti- nence shall go hand in hand, seeking trophies for the Master's Kingdom.
A Darkey's Violence at Penarth. James Hill, a coloured gemman," was arraigned before the Court at Barry Dock on Monday, charged with being drunk and aisorderly and assaulting the police at Penarth on Saturday night last. Constables Adams and Chotit informed the Magistrates—Major- General Lee and Alderman J. C, Meggitt—that Hill was creating a disturbance in Glebe-street at 9.15 p.m., and when they interposed, he assaulted them by kicking and beating them about the body. Hill was fined 7s 6d or seven days for the drunkeness, and £ 1 or 14 days for the attack on the police.
Original Poetry. IN PRETTY PENARTH. I'm going to sing the praises of a place nOt far from here, In fact not many miles from Cardiff Town Where there's glorious summer gardens and a prom- enading pier, And the latest fashions flitting- up and down You can have a pony carriage at threepence each per head, Or a little boat at one-and-six per hour. A shilling for a dinner and ditto for a bed, And Nurton will supply a penny flower.
CHORUS. Oh pretty Penarth iu little Welsh Wales, Where the donkeys all kick And the dogs wag their tails, Where the ladies so charming stroll on the Pier, And m gossip the latest from town you can bear, here there's boating and money and channel trip cruising, And bashing, and mashing, and lits of sly I boozing, ,I And teasing, and squeezing, and everything pleasing, In pretty Penarth in Little Welsh Wales. If you want a trip down channel, there's the favourite Lorna Doone. Or the new Lady Margaret which you choose; For Bristol, charming Chepstow, Burnham, or Ilfra- combe. Splendid pleasure sailings nobody should lose, r^urner'8 gallery, Smmin yotrfvarft an aHistic wmm, This will not coat you mucb, in fact it-ie free; And the Baths provide a jolly swim. On lovely summer evenings, when the air is fresh and calm, I The sound of rippling wavelets you can hear, I As yon languidly recline on your favourite masher's j arm. You enjoy a promenade along the pier. You can listen to thb concerts from seven to nine- fifteen, Chosen from the operas to the latest wheeze, And where the happy smiles of patrons can be seen ( Who drop a sixpence in the box if pleased.

x Dr. Hugh Findlay, Penarth. The ordinary sitting of Newport magistrates, last Briday, in consequence of the Brewster Sessions, was held an hour before the usual time. Messrs H. Phillips and J. S. Stone WP1'e pusctuslly in attendance but the court presented a deserted appearance. There was no charge sheet, and the only matter upon which the consideration of the Court was asked was an application by Mr Lyndon Moore, solicitor, that "Dr" Hugh Findlay (who gives his address as Windsor-ter- race, Penarth), should be further reminded for a week on the ground that the principal witness in the chief case, that of obtaining £54 worth of jewellery by false pretences, was Still un bl to attend pwinff to illness. The "doctor" offered no objection tJ tfo remand, but protested against being subjected to the indignity of being brought to and from Uwk as if he wera a convicted criminal. The English law, he declared, held every man innocent until he bad been proved guilty. The magistrates, however, told prisoner that they could not interfere with the arrange- ments of the police. Mr Moore informed prisoner that if he would promise not to attempt to escape from custody he need not be handcuffed. This appeared to satisfy the doctor," and he went below, having been remanded for another week. One of the Magistrates then inquired of the Head Constable whether they were entitled to white gloves or not, and added that if they (the magistrates) were, his size was 9J. Head Constable Sinclaire, however shook his head the wrong way, and the court was speedily cleared, the business having been despatched within 10 minutes. 0

Lord Windsor and the Mayoralty. At noon on Tuesday the deputation selected by the Cardiff Corporation to convey to Lord Windsor the unanimous invitation of that body that his lordship should accept the Mayoralty of the borough for the coming year, left for St. Fagan's Castle, where Lord Windsor had arranged to receive them at 1 o'clock. The deputation consisted of the Mayor (Alderman Carey, J.P.), the depuiy-mayor (Alderman Jacob's', J. P.), Councillor Eoenezer Beavau, J, P., with the town clerk (Mr J L. Wheatley). Lord Windsor received the deputation with characteristic courtesy, and Alderman Carey, having explained the object of their visit, aud expressed the pleasure it afforded him in being the medium of eotiveying to his Lordship the unanimous wish of those members of the Corporation who were present at Monday's meeting, the other members cordially joined in the request. After Lord Windsor had made numerous inquiries as to the natare of the duties pertaining to the office, which the Town Cletk fully explained, his Lordship, in acceding to the invitation, expressed himself as extremely grati. fied at the remarks made by the deputation, and particularly desired the hYJr to convey to ti 0 Corporation his warmest thanks and sense ut the high honour they had conferred upon him.
