IFORITES' EXCURSION. On Monday morning last, vehicles of almost every description entered the town at an early hour for the purpose of going to Swansea by the long looked for Iforites' Excursion," which was got up for the benefit of the Widows and Orphans' Fund, a most praiseworthy object, the proceeds of which, we are informed, amounted to about £20. The time announced for leaving the Neath and Brecon station was 8-10, but long before that time the carriages and platform were crowded. This was the largest excursion train that has hitherto left Brecon, and we are happy to say that the general management was excellent; somewhere about a thousand persons arrived at Swansea but a few minutes after the time specified, and returned safe and sound back again at Brecon by 10 o'clock the same evening, after a good day's pleasure, the day being beautiful and fine. Many people on this meritorious occasion availed themselves of seeing the great sea, as well as the treat of riding in a railway carriage, up to that time a thing quite unknown to them. The first excursion having passed off so remark- ably well, we have not the slightest doubt but that many more will follow. On the 12th of August the Odd Fellows' mted having their excursion.
