THE CHRISTMAS MEAT SHOW AT PONTYPOOL. A glance at the meat shops of the town on Wednesday conveyed the impression that the butchers had made full preparations for provid- ing for their numerous patrons, and that locally, at all events, the principles of the Vegetarian Society do not seem to have gained very many converts. On the whole there was an absence of the outward adornment and decoration which marked the displays of former years, but the varioKS traders seemed to have laid in abundant suppiiesfthejdisplayiof feeef being of course most in evidence, whilst mutton and pork, and poultry, were by no means forgotten. Complaint was made by seme of the tradesmen that they had not been censulted as to the day for holding the market, Wednesday 3&eing "regarded as unsuit- able from the fact that the employees at the different "works had raot as a rule received their p^y. They were firmly conTinced that some- one had -blundered: but we-can only hope that the error will not affect the -takings. Mrs. Jt. Lloyd, Commercial-street, made, as usual, a capital show, having killed for Christmas w; eek a prime heifer and a prime ox., 6 Welsh wethers (from Mr. J. C. H&nbury, J-F., Ponty- pool Park), 6 Ecglish wethers, 12 pigs, and 1 large pig. A E ice display i6 also made of small goods, comprising sbrawn, sausages, &c. Mr. T. Lewis, Commercial-srreet, made a first- rate display, his exhibits embracing a aaumber of ?rime wethers (from Mr. J. C. Hanbury, J.P., 'ontypool Parfc)„ Shropshire Down wethers (from Mr. J. Thosrne, Court Morga bullocks (from Mr. J. Evans, Rhydimain), heifers (from jMr. J. Lewis, Llangwendar), &c. Mr. F. 0. Lawrence, Crane-street, was well;to the fore with. an attractive display of jprime beef, mutton, &c.: and the same remark applies to Mr. j-F. Lewis, High-street. Mrs. M. Lewis, Commercial-street, had aprirae I lot df beef, mutton, and porkers, the showiin- •cluding 2 splendid heifers, and 4 axen. The whole was -very prettily dressed. In addition, ,Mn.;Lewis displayed a large assortment of geeee, fowls, and -turkeys. At Mrs. Lewis's branch shop, in George-steeet, there was a Iapital dis- play c, f prize dairy- fed perk. Eaatmans, limited, Commercial-street, shewed 6 Weish wethers, 3 sucking pigs, and 4 porkers. The &Iock also included 30 American sheep, and a quantity of Ameiacan beef (not frocsen). Mr. J. Davies, pork butcher, Market-street, exhibited a prime lot of .porkers, including 8 fromMr. Pain, Llaiiover J5 ill, and U from Mr. Yarry Hill iFarm, Kington. The y-hole were very attractive. Mr. J. Lifctlehales, Crane-street, displayed a number of excellent porkew,, and a laige suppfy v-of brawn, sausages, Jfic.
