MAESTEG. LLTXYI IRON Woaxs.—On the 24th ult., an additional fur- nace was blown in at the above works. The event was hailed •with jay by the workmen as the dawn of better time. Many of them assembled together on a spot near the furnaces to demonstrate theirjoyous feelings, on the occasion, where they en^iwed in drinking, shooting, and shouting, for a considerable time.° Their sound was heard far and near, and the whole dingle echoed to their shoutings. FAT VL ]-)ItINKING- --A-ii elderly man named Thomas Jenkins, who was discharging his duty as a bailiff, in the Globe public house, Maesteg, on the 23rd ult., drank to such excess of the liquor which had been given to him gratuitously so as to make him drunk. He left the Globe intending to return with others of his party to Hridgend, and bei unable to proceed he was conveyed inco the Lamb, where he was attended by Dr. Lewis and his assistant; but notwithstanding their diligence and skill the drunken man became the victim of his favourite beve- rage. He died the following day. Here is another instance of the evil of the drinking system. The deceased was respectably connected, and some years ago received about £ 1,200 on the death of a relative, which he soon squandered in dissipation.
