We hope we may have the pleasure of recording many si- milar acts of munificence in behalf of this most excellent of charitable institutions,^Carmarthen Journal.— An extraordi- nary and general effort was made during the past week in aid of the funds. Every available means were resorted to,a bazaar,—a ball,—a concert,—and a sermoil,-varietic.. of ob- jects to interest all classes from the gay soldier to the devoted saint. The bazaar was well supported, and realized, we under- stand, nearly £ 400. The ball was so well sustained as to call forth from a very classical contemporary the following piece of eloquence" The poesy of motion met willing aids on this oc- casion, and the votaries of Terpsichore had a rich treat; for excellent music, brilliant lights, flashing uniforms, magnificent dresses, and above all bright eyes and cheerful conversation, all contributed to enhance the general harmony and joy." The concert was well attended; but the performances (judging from the criticism of the local press) did not give general satis- faction. The sermon by. the Bishop of St. David's was, as all the productions of the right rev. prelate are, most excellent; the collection at the close exceeded E40.
