Ii. NEWPORT, PEM. Personal.—At the annual meeting of the I North Pembrokeshire Farmers' Club, held at I Fishguard on Thursday afternoon, it was unanimously decided to confer the presidency for the ensuing year upon Alderman G B Bowen, J.P., of Llwyngwair. Wedding. A very pretty but quiet wedding took place at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning last at St Mary's Parish Church, the contracting parties being Mr James T Ewing and Miss Elizabeth Maud Lewis, of j Goat-street. The bride was given away by her brother, Mr D Lewis, Ferndale, Glamor- ganshire, whilst Mr W Lewis acted as best man. The Rector (Rev D G Phillips) officiated. Breakfast was afterwards par- taken of at the house of the bride. Lecture.—A paper was read on Wednes- day evening last at the Church Chapel by Mr James, Parrog Road, the subject of the paper being What is Man?" or know thy- self." Several questions were asked at the close, and much discussion followed. Capt D Mathias, presided, and made a capital chairman. Illness.—The many tricnds of Mr James Thomas, Temperance Hotel learn with re- gret of his indisposition, and trust that he will soon be restored to his usual health again. j Death.—It is with profound sorrow we have to chronicle this week the death, at the early age of 13 years, of John Brown Thomas, Greystone House, King-street, who passed peacefully away on the evening of Saturday last. The deceased was a great favourite with all his schoolmates, being always bright and of a most pleasant disposition, and during the past summer took great intesest, with other lads, in the Boy Scouts Corps. Our young friend had not been in robust health for some time, but during the past nine or ten weeks has been confined to his bed. The funeral took place to-day (Wed- nesday) at the Parish Churchyard. Election.—On Friday for twelve solid hours, the ancient Borough presented a scene of most unwonted activity, the occas- ion being the election of a member to re- present the County in the new Parliament which is to be summoned next month. Party colours and favours were everywhere in evidence, there was a good supply of mural literature, and the influx of voters from the outlying parishes thronged the main thorough- fares with a good (humoured crowd, which never tired either of gravely arguing a pol- itical, fiscal, or constitutional problem, or of bantering an opponent when opportunity arose. So keen was the interest evinced in the contest that it may safely be asserted that when, at eight o'clock, the Presiding officer (Mr V J G Johns) declared the poll closed, and there were few, if any, who had not exercised the franchise.
