LOCAL AND OTHER NOTES.
LOCAL AND OTHER NOTES. The Amateur Athletic meeting on the 21st inst, under Rules, the first of its kind that has been I held in Pembrokeshire, promises to be a success. Mr Geo. Ace the promoter is nothing it not ener- getic, and certainly deserves the active support ot I all Tenbyites for being instrumental in obtaining special facilities for strangers coming here for that day, from all parts of England, getting several special excursions from different parts of Wales, and for so materially adding to the amusement of those visitors already amongst us. I hear with satisfaction that he has obtained several bona fide entries from well known men in the athletic world, and that there is at present every prospect of the 1889 annual meeting for amateurs being successful. I have heard frequent complaints about the behaviour of the lads who seem to think that when the band plays upon the Castle Hill it is for their especial benefit, and fail not to evince their appa- rent appreciation of unrestrained liberty by running three-legged and other races, playing leap- frog and other youthful and not over mild eccen- tricities, decidedly inconvenient to the community, This state of things should certainly not be allowed to continue, as neither sober residents like myself, nor visitors sojourning amongst us, care to risk being sent sprawling at the band in anything but a dignified manner. I hope that a constable will be placed on duty there as formerly, when it proved not only to be necessary but effective. On Sunday evenings, too, the presence of a man in uniform would have a most salutary effect upon the un- restrained temperament of the harbour boy. Speaking of the police reminds me that at a recent meeting of the Town Council, Mr J. A. Jenkins raised the question whether the Government should not be asked to repay to the Corporation part of ,be cost of maintenance of the old Borough Police, between the 29th September, 1888, and the 31st March, 1889, and the Town Clerk was instructed to apply to the Home Office for the same. I understand a reply has been received to the effect that the Home Secretary is of opinion that the Borough of Tenby is entitled to make a clai:u for the repa) ment of one-half the cost out of the County Fund; but all will depend upon the Secretary of State's certificate of efficiency, which, if the Inspector of Constabulary justifie-i its being given, will be issued soon after the 29th Sep- tember. » The Pembroke and Tenby Railway Company by means of cheap excursions over there line, gave the inhabitants of the district through which their system passes an opportunity of visiting the splendid fleet which arrived in Milford Haven in the early hours of Sunday, for the pur- pose of coaling previous to taking part in the extensive warlike manctuvref which were supposed to commence yesterday at noon. It is hardly necessary to say that the facilities afforded by the- active traffic manager were largely partaken of by visitors to Tenby, to the great majority of whom the fleet was a sight worth seeing and one never likely to be forgotten. • » The noble line of England's "wooden walla" stretched from a point near Thorne Island to the Royal Dockyard at Pater and consisted of twenty- seven ironclads, battleships and cruisers, together with ten first-class torpedo boats. Thousands of t mil visitors were convejed down the noble Haven from Hobb's Point during their short, stay in the river for the purpose of inspecting them, and to judge from the remarks one heard on board, the visit, to a very large proportion, must have been as sur- prising as it was enjoyable. Doubtless before the manoeuvres terminate there will be other oppor- tunities of seeing Rear-Admiral Tryon's splendid fleet. » • 1 A note writer in Wheeling of this week hits off the Tenby meeting in the following words:— II Tenby on the 21st is a spot where a smart back marker could win a nice collection of prizes, im- bibe delicious ozone, listen to Welsh cheering, and have a real good time. Just a Teddy Mayes sort of corner you know Who is to be the lucky man?" Yes, that's the rub. Who will be the lucky man? Teddy Mayes, as some of my readers are probably aware, is a notorious pot hunter. If he turns up at Tenby he will make some of the Welsh champions feel limp. Take my word for it." TATTLER.
THE ROYAL AND AUXILIARY ARTILLERY…
THE ROYAL AND AUXILIARY ARTILLERY IN WALES. By the general order to the Royal Artillery, just issued in order to re-constitute the great regiment, the Welsh Regular Brigade of nine batteries is to be abolished, in common with several other brigades, the whole to be re-organised as three divisions, to be called the Eastern (headquarters Dover), Southern (Portsmouth), and Western (Devonport). The latter-containing 25 batteries-is to take in the greater part of the Welsh Regular Batteries, No. 1 Welsh becoming No. 11 Western; No. ? becoming No. 16; No. 3, No. 23 No. 4, No. 13 No. 5, No. 2; No. 6, No. 9; No. 7, No. 14 No. 8, No. 18; and No. 9, No. 37 of the Southern Division. The old Auxiliary Artillery District at Cardiff is to be abolished, and its business to be transferred to Devonport, with the oversight of the Militia and Volunteer Artillery Brigades in the Principality.
EBENEZER, COLD INN.—On Friday, August 2nd, the above chapel held its annual public tea, and a great number of friends came to partake of it. All the ladies, and the friends that were assisting, did their part with great credit, and all the friends who partook seemed to be quite satisfied. In the evening a lecture was delivered by the Rev. T. W. Davies, B.A., of Haverfordwest on his "Travels in Palestine." The chapel was crowded. The chair was taken by the pastor of the church, the Rev. T. Gravell. The lecture was most interesting. Mr Davies spoke for nearly two hours, and the congre- gation seemed to be willing to listen for another two. Mr Davies had brought many things back with him from Palestine, and they were with him here, such as the leathern girdle John the Baptist had, and lamps like those the ten virgins had. He had also water from the river Jordan, and many other things. The unanimous opinion of all that heard the lecture was, that it was one of the most interesting they ever listened to. A Suffolk farmer, who had a goose stolen from him, complained to the curate, and begged of his reverence to assist him in getting back his goose. Accordingly, when the curate ascended the pulpit on Sunday, he desired all the congregation to sit down, and when they had obeyed he said, "Why sit ye not down ? They replied, "'We are already seated." "Nay," replied the curate, "be that stole the goose sitteth not." ft Y 88, that I do," exclaimed the guilty party. "SayeBt thou that?" replied the curate. I charge thee, on pain of excommunication, to bring the goose back again." The sequel need not be related. THE LAST MONTH or THE SIEGE OF PARIS.—As the month of January, 1871, advanced, all the coal and coke in Paris was expressly reserved for public purposes, such as the flour-mills, gunpowder-mills, and cannon foundries. Smaller quantities were issued to printing establishments and other branches of industry of public necessity but to private individuals they were rigorously denied. Wood, however, was sold without restriction at the special wood-yards in each arrondissement. A great number of barges, lying in the river near Paris since the commencement of the siege, it was proposed to break up, with a view to using the material as fuel. A decree emanating from the Government ordered that all stores of bitumen in the city should be placed at the disposal of the Government. A method had been found to convert bitumen into a combustile adapted for steam-boilers, and, therefore, of great value to the numerous manufactories of arms. The new combustible was said to leave as a residuum a kind of coke, very heavy, but capable of being used for the heating of ovens. Most writers agreed in saying that the very poor actually suffered less misery that winter-at least, until the final collapse—than in ordinary years. This was owing to the support they received from public and private charity, and to the large 0 amount of employment created by the military operations. The prices of food in January, however were terrible. For a hare, f2 16s. was asked. Larks were 2s. 4d. each, and apples fetched the same sum. A fresh egg cost nearly 2s., and butter was 30s. a pound. The two elephants in the Jardin cl'Acclimatation-" Castor and" Pollux "-were killed, and eaten for food and a few slices of the trunk (which was considered the best part) cost 24s. each. Of the character of these animals, considered as food, very different accounts were given. For purposes of cookery tallow was often used, as being almost the only kind of grease obtainable. The old students of Llandovery College have presented the Bishop of St. Asaph with a Victoria carriage, for use in the diocese, together with two albums, containing portraits of the donors and bearing the arms of the College. The present students have given the Rev. J. Owen, Dean of St. Asaph, and retiring warden, a tea and coffee service, and the masters, past and present, a piece of plate. At the distribution of the prizes at the College, the Bishop of St. Asaph referred to the Welsh Inter- mediate Bill. He said a Bill had been brought in by Mr Stuart Rendel, and others. It was a crude piece of machinery, and exposed its author and his supporters to the suspicion that their Bill had been promoted more in the spirit of the partisan than in that of the educationist. The Bill, however, had not been without its service, for it had induced the Government to take the question up, and they had so amended and transformed the Bill that its original author had little more to do with it than the shadowy connection of having his name on the back. At the annual prize distribution at Howard College, Bedford, Mr Joshua Hawkins, Mayor of the town, called special attention to the physical training which girls were receiving in this school., He thought this of the greatest possible importance. Their successes at various public examinations were aigns of good mental work, but the foundation of all was physical culture. It was stated that the enlargement of the school buildings would be completed before the beginning of the next term. Religion slips through some people's fingers as rapidly as ill-gotten money. An old Scotch minister told his congregation the truth when he said: "Brethren, you are just like the duke's swans in the lake yonder. You come to church every Sabbath, and I lave you all over with the gospel water, and I pour it upon you until you are almost drowned with it; but you just gang away hame, and sit down by your fireside, gie your wings a bit o' flap, and you are just as dry as ever again."
