The next business of the evening was the awarding of the prizes to the authors of the best stanzas on "Our gracious Sovereign William IV. and '< The fall of Guliuh." There were several excellent pro- ductions on each of the above subjects. The president, and Mr. Davies, Bardd, Nantglyn, decided on their respective merits, in the announcement of which, the former gentleman delivered a very long and eloquent speech, but as he spoke in the Welsh language we cannot adequately do him justice by a translation. He was followed by Bardd Nantghjn, in a short and eloquent addwss. The prize was awarded to Mr. Wto. Edwards, ofSceifiog, for the best stanzas on our gracious Sovereign, and Mr. Thomas Ellis, of Caer- wys, succeeded on The Fall of Goliah." Each was invested with a medal. Pennillion singing with the harp then commenced, which was carried on for a considerable time with great spit zt. The successful candidate for the prize was Mr. Richard Owens. The company enjoyed themselves during the evening in other literary discussions, and in drinking several appropriate toasts, and they separated at a late hour n unity and brotherly love.-Chester Couraitt
