-==:=:-==:: itt ID itiittitttf-t- -dftt I:C. Mil C. PRICE, ironmonger of Abergavenny has been appointed postmaster of that town, ill the place of Mr T. L. Wood all, who resigned the situation. THE TRADESMEN AND GENTLEMEN'S FRIENDLY SOCIETY, on Thursday week, held their first anniver- sary at the Crown Inn, Abergavenny. At ha'f-past eleven they proceeded to hear Divine service; the first man bearing a very handsome silk banner; the landlord, Mr Win. Davies", carrying a very neat crown and a member bearing a bcnlltiful gilded acorn. The Hev. T. Morgan, of Llandilo, delivered a very excel- lent discourse. After the service they returned to the Inn., where they partook of a sumptuous dinner; after which the usual toasts were drunk. About eight o'clock the music struck off, and the wives and sweet- hearts of the gentlemen present, threaded the mazes of the dance till a late hour, when they departed, highly pleased with the proceedings of the day. The club has been opened only 14 months, but they are very strong and most respectable, and no doubt, by the next anniversary, they will be complete in number, which is 99; no more will be allowed.
