FISHGUARD. A meeting of the Town Light Com- mittee took place on Tuesday evening. A statement of accounts was presented, which showed the usual deficit. It was resolved that a concert should be held at a near date, and the proceeds to bedevoted towards the Towil Lights' 5 und. A meeting of subscribers to the proposed Cottage Hospital took place on Friday evening last. J. C. Yorke, Esq., occupied the chair. The subscription list showed satisfactory progress, which is a great encouragement to the originator of tne scheme, as welt as its supporters. Upwards of about £52 have already been promised. Canvassers were appointed for the different districts to solicit further subscriptions and donations. A DERELICT SCHOONER.—Early on Fri- day morning a vessel was seen drifting about in the bay in a, sinking condition. The lifeboat was immediately launched, but before it had readied the vessel the crew, four in number, bad taken to their own boat, and landed at Goodwick under the guidance of Messrs il. Pitman and T. Stenner, coastguardsmen. Later in the u I day the vessel was brought into Fishguard II by the lifeboat crew.—The vessel turned out to be the Alice Eleanor, bound from Wwfori to Newport, in ballast,
DINAS CROSS. We are sorry to say that the attempt of L I supplying a place of recreation and instruc- tion for our young sailors and others, where the environment has nothing in it of a hurtful character, has not, generally speaking, met the encouragement it deserves at Dinas; though there are a few noble exceptions. LECTURE.—A lecture-was delivered at the Board Schoolroom, on Thursday last, by the Rev B. Rowlands, Gideon, on Fraoth(,,bau Enwogion," or Witty say- i-ings-of eminent men." The B,ev J. W. Maurice occupied the chair. The proceeds were in aid of the Reading Room. The lecturer confined himself for the most part to the witty sayings of noted Welshmen, and to'tliose sayings which Mad a tendency to be useful as well as pleasant. Instruc- to be useful as well as pleasant. Instruc- t'ion and pleasure were. thus blended very happily together. The appreciation of the audience, was testified by genuine cheers and frequent ^ears of laughter. This was the first'time for Mr Rowlands to appear in the roll of a lecturer, but we venture to prophesy it will not be the last, for he is an effective speaker and a good mimic— qualities which cannot fail to tell in a lecturer. The proceeds will enable the Committee of the Reading Room to tide over present difficulties.
NEWPORT,- PEM.. LECTURE.—The Rev D. Oliver Edwards will deliver a lecture onMeini gwerth- fawr o hen chwarelau," at the Tabernacle Chapel on Easter Monday evening, when the chair will be taken by the Rev G. Morgans.
ST. DAVID'S. In the Cathedral City there is a, Free Reading Room, which is much frequented by lads and lasses from the board school. These young people take a deep interest in politics, and the other day one of them, a lad 13 or 14 years of age, who had just been apprenticed to a certain trade, went to the Reading lioom as usual, when there happened to be a Conservative working man present. The working man, on look- ing over the papers, had found something which highly amused him, and which turned out to be a cartoon representing i Lord Salisbury and Mr Chamberlain as dogs attacking Mr Gladstone, and so pleased. as the man that he called to the lad which took adverse views on policies— Come here George; what do you think of this ? Is it not good now ? Don't they give it to him ? Well done, &c." Young George looked at the cartoon and very coolly turned the tabies on his opponent by saying, "This just proves what I have always been telling you, that none but dogs would ,ever think of attacking the Grand Old Man."—Com, ST. DAVID'S DAY CELEBRATIONS AT THE SAINT'S NATIVE CITY.-Amongst the var- ious communities of Welshmen the globe o'er who honoured the saint's day, and those, associations connected therewith, and the national feeling towards Gwjad y menyg gwynion," few perhapsi tho ig it of the city in the western pxit of the Principality where the patron samp was born. To all who take an interest in Welsh history, the story of St. David's life is one of great interest. The celebra- tion of the day in this city took the form of a social tea meeting and concert, which took place at the Tabernacle Schoolroom. There was a good attendance of the j.general public without distinctioii of creed, and a very pleasant evening was spent. Tea being over, an interval was allowed during which the young and old passed a right merry time. The concert com- menced at 730, under tne presidency of Mr W. D. Williams (Messrs W. D. 'Williams and Co.), Cross Square. The various parts of the programme were 1heartily enjoyed, the climax being reached when Mr H. W. Evans, of Solva, favoured tho audience with penillion singing. The words were composed by the singer, and were topical of the stunt's day, and of those Oymry who Had made their name renown- ed. The ^olva party having kindly come over rendered several pieces in good style, as also did the St. David's party. Solos, duets, &c., were also sung by local artistes, and the singing of the Welsh National Anthem brought a very enjoyable meeting to a close.
Dr Gurnos Jones delivered alecture on The French Invasion at Fishguard," at Coychurob, Bridgend, on Monday eveuizig I last. 5 r v V » I

Missionary Services were held at Middle Mill and Mount Pleasant Baptist Chapels on Sunday last, when suitable and impressive sermons were delivered by the pastor, the Rev W. Roberts. ENTERTAINLVIENT. A very interesting entertainment was held at the Schoolroom on Friday evening last. The programme consisted of competitive items in singing, recitations, &c., and the triumph of this, the second entertainment, should be an encouragement to the promoters to continue in their good work, as such meetings tend to do much good to the young people of the place, and the fact that the entertainments have been so well attended is a clear proof that the efforts of the committee are highly appreciated. The adjudicators were the Rev E. T. Jones (Vicar), Messrs H. W. Evans, J. Bonnell and L. Morgan, and the Rev H.. W. Thomas made a capital con- ductor.

FISHGUARD JOTTINGS. • [BY QUIL-DIUVEK.] The St. David's Day concert at the Temperance Hall was a decided success— musically and financially. The appearance of the ladies on the stage in Welsh Costume suggested the idea that Fishguard is not behind in honouring our ancestors. The artistes performed their duties in a credit- able manner. The arrangements of the concert were entirely in the hands of. Mr LI. Williams, and to his credit be it observed that every detail had been worked out. The engage- ment of Ap Fearce added greatly to the success of the concert. His reputation as a harpist was fully maintained. The Tredavid concert did not receive. the support it deserved, oa account of the inclemency of the weather/ Undoubtedly, to p t 1 the first report u-d' of an event is considered a great feat The other day I read of a newspaper that had published the result of a football match two days before the event came off. Last week an attempt was made by a con- temporary to produce the first report of a concert. It stated that a certain gentle- man 'made a capital chairman, &c whereas the gentleman referred to was unable to. attend. A friend of mine told me That this winter's scarcity of provender has made the Cwmbrandy Common like a Sahara.' I went for a load of furze,' he continued, and I had nothing but stumps.' The appointment of a new Vicar has been the sole topic of conversation for some time past. A selection has been made, and in all probability the offer will be accepted. 'Yes,' said Mr using his in- fluence on a modest young man to join the Pelican. Club, we'll make you fit ft tihe world. We teach the noble art in all its branches—offensive and deffensive.'

At he Town Hall, Tonby', oh Tuesday last, a young woman named Kate Hickey, cook, in the service of Captajn Payne, 4, The Croft, was brought up in custody 1 before the Magistrates and charged with killing her infant child on the 12th of February, 1894, at 4 The Croft. A post- mortem examination had been made, and the doctors' evidence showed that the cause of the death of the child was stn: 1- gulation. At the conclusion of the evideL ft the young woman was formally charged with the crime by the cierk to the justices, and in reply she said she did not kill the child, and" did not know what she was doing. —The Bench then committed her for trial for wilful murder, to the next Pexn" brokeshire Assjbes at Haverfordwest*
