Political.—Mr Arthur Davies—who was supported by Mr D W Lewis (Manorowen) presided over a meeting held on the Post Office Square, on Saturday afternoon, when a spirited address was delivered by Mr W J Heman, of the Parliamentary branch of the United Irish League, who urged all Irishmen to entrust their conscience to the party and to vote for the Liberal Government which had already done so much for Ireland, and would unquestionably do. more ohce the House of Lords — which was opposed to Home Rule—had been either swept away or amended. Atlantic Traffic.On Wednesday of last week the Booth liner Anthony" was to have called at Fishguard for the purpose of debarking passengers, but, inasmuch as only two signified a desire to land here, procee- ded direct to Liverpool instead. — The Cun- ard liner Umbria was, on the same date to have paid her initial visit to the port, and also to have inaugurated the direct New York-Fishguard service, but, having been considerably delayed by heavy weather in mid-Atlantic, would have been unable to have reached the port until an hour on Thurs- day morning exceedingly inconvenient to passengers, with the result that the call was abandoned. No Cunarder is due this week, but the "Lusitania is expected to arrive direct from New York at about six o'clock on Monday evening. Pastoral.—The pastorate which has been accepted by the Rev S A Evans, minister of the local Congregational Church is situate at Wem, in Shropshire, whither he will proceed at the end of March. — The Revs Cynon Jones and George Thomas have already settled down to their ministerial duties in connection with Bethesda and Berachah Chapels respectively. Football.—On Saturday afternoon in con- nection with the competition for the cup offered by the Rev W E Nesbit, the Loco' Department beat the Construction Depart- ment by a goal to nil.— Next Saturday the Marine and Traffic Departments will contest the issue upon Pen Cw enclosure. Ecclesiastical."— The Rev W E Nesbit, curate at St Peter's Church, who has been unwell for some time, is at present recuper- ating at his Somersetshire home. Metropolitan Bank. — Although Mr D L. Llewellyn still retains the agency for this corporation and has fitted up commodious premises for it in his own building, the actual management of the business has now been entrusted to Mr F A Jones, who is in daily attendance.i Bay Hotel.—The annex to this structure has already progressed so far that it has been found possible t. commence the external plastering. Economy.—The Porteur was on Mon- day actively engaged in dredging the har- bour-bed for derelict coal. Harbour Station.— The extension of the telegraphic department at the Harbour Station by the incorporation of the Superin- intendent's office — long foretold in these columns—was last week effected, and proves a very decided improvement. Mr Bowen and his clerk have been accommodated in one of the superfluous waiting-rooms, which has been adapted to the purpose. Parrog Bridge.—The temporary structure spanning the Parrog road having been care- fully shored up, a travelling steam crane was on Monday utilised for the purpose of raising into position the heavy concrete blockshich are intended to form the coping stones of permanent structure. Already tipping on the Parrog side of the buttressess has commenced, and the embankment is now beginning to make its way seawards across the historic sands. Personal.—We are pleased to learn that Mr Bowen's (Station and Quay Superinten- dant's) son Clifford is progressing rapidly, but it will be some time before he will be in his usual condition, as he had a very bad attack of pneumonia which he contracted at Park Royal.
