BRISTOL. CONFIRMATIONS.—The Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol has conferred the rite of confirmation on large numbers during the last and present week. As the subjects of this rite are confirmed in their renunciation of the pomps and vanities of this wicked world, among other things enumerated in the baptismal vow, it is presumed that they fully understand expensively-decorated dresses, lace veils, &c., not to come under that description and also that the high functionary who confirms them in such renun- ciation, is equally convinced that carriages with gilded mitres, huge lawn sleeves, the title of my lord," &c., &c., are purely celestial and spiritual things. Such are the irresistible conclusions of a calm spectator who pens this notice. ANCIENT ORDER OF FORESTERS.—A gala was set on foot at the Zoological gardens, Clifton, last Monday, for the benefit of the widows of deceased "Ancient Foresters;" but the clouds were unpropitious, though intervals of sunshine prevailed suffi- ciently to save the gala from postponement. It is, however, to be feared that its object was not satisfactorily answered, notwithstand- ing the attraction of some brilliant fireworks at night. The pro- cession of Foresters, in their picturesque costume, attended by a fine band of music, banners, &c., attracted large crowds.in. the city and suburbs, as it made an extensive circuit on its march to the.gardens, which certainly present a very attractive locality for such recreations.
