RHOSITES IN AUSTRALIA. Mr Joseph Parry, Islington, New South Wales, in an interesting letter to his bro- ther, Mr Edward Parry, builder, Duke- street, Ponkey, says :— We are enjoying our old-age pension of 7s per week, and we are glad to hear that old-age pensions are now being paid in Wales. It must be a great help to those who try and spend it in a right way. You say that things are bad in Wales respect ing work. Well, over here it is just as bad. People are coming here as emi- grants and they cannot find work. Ser- vant girls and young men come out here, but when they arrive they cannot find places. Several of our mines are idle now and the Companies do not seem to care how the people live. Boys and young men are taken on, and married men can get no work. It is strange that in a land like ours all goods are sent over to Engla'nd, and we have to pay dear for them here. There is a Welsh chapel here but there Is no Welsh pastor now. The Rev Mona Jones (Baptist) our minister, preaches occasionally in Welsh. The chapel was built 40 years ago (by the writer of this letter-Ed.) but the old Welsh people of 40 years ago who used to attend, have all gone to their rest. This church was the main Welsh church for miles around, and the Welsh folk used to have a happy time in the days gone by. Young Australians do not learn Welsh, so the sermons are English, except when the Rev Mona Jones gives us a special Welsh sermon. We have our annual Eisteddfod here once a year, and the Welsh people come from all parts.
