PONTYPRIDD. THE NOltMAL COLLEGE versus DRINK.—An example worthy of imitation, and a striking proof of the interest felt by the working classes in voluntary education, occurred in this town an Friday last. It appears that the workmen of Mr. Evan Evans, mason, were about completing the roof of two cottages, 'file usual amount of money to be spent on the occasion was subscribed for. It v-cts annjunced that ten shillings had been collected. All seemed well pleased, and the place for the jollir ligation was agreed upon. Just at the moment, ilr. John Evans (leiian Grychgoch), one of the labourers, cam; to the franc of the building, and cried out, lfczlt," aiid'said, "I have nHe proposition to make, and have no doubt but that you will ag-ree with it. That is, that the old system of drinking I etc-rw ■cjspla' be done away with, and that the money be given towards the Normal College for Wales." The proposition was received with enthusiastic cheering, and agreed to without a dissentient voiee. The following morning I had the honour and gratification of handing the ten shillings to Aaron Crossfiekl, Esq., and that in the presence of all the men who so freely sacrificed as old custom for a worthier object.-—GWILYM GLAN AJ-ON.
