ABERDARE. THE ODD-FELLOWS.—Aberdare was enlivened on Saturday the §.th instant, by the anniversary proceedings of the Odd-fellows of the four lodges held in this place. At an early hour in the morn- ing, though the clouds were gathering and the rain descending, groups of well-dressed men were seen weeding their way to their respective lodges. At noon might be seen one of the largest and most respectable processions ever witnessed in Aberdare, formed of the brothers constituting the four lodges, in which order they proceededed to the parish ehu.ch, where a Welsh sermon was preached by the Rew John Griffiths, M.A., from I Peter ii. 13, '17. After this, the different lodges returned to their respective rooms to pay their respects to the good things provided for them by their respected hosts. The dinner at the Green Dragon pro- vided by host Morgan was all that could be desired, and the wine accompanying it—the genuine production of nature—was much to our taste. When the friends present, including the Rev. Mr, Griffith, the minister cf the day, had done ample justice to the good things of the table, and thp cloth being removed, our much respected young foetid, David Davies, Esq., surgeon, was voted to the'chair, .and Mr. John Ey-ans, graper, to the vice-chair ;• and the afternoon was most innocently and happily spent irl listening to addresses by our chairman and others explanatory of the princi- ples of Manchester Unity of Odd-fellows. During the whole day we saw nothing but a desire to cherish and spread the principles of order, peace, concord, and brotherly love.
