Seldom have the publio of Mostyn and district been entertained by sohool children in a more pleasing manner than by the scholars of Lady Augusta Mostyn's School, Rhewl, on Tuesday afternoon aDd evening last. The first part was of a miscellaneous character, in which the debutantes were scions of the noble house of Mostyn. In the second part, the piece selected was peculiarly applicable to the close of the present year—" Victoria's Reign," a dramatised history with striking and effective tableaux. The chair was taken at the afternoon performance by the Hon. Edward Mostyn, who on his first appearanoe in public was accorded a hearty reception. The duties of the office Were fulfilled degagc, and to the satisfaction and appreciation of the audience and the youthful artistes. The company present included Lord and Lady Mostyn and family; Lady Mostyn and family, of Talacre; Mr and Mrs Folds and family, of Pentreffynnon; Dr. and Mrs J. T. Jones, of Llanasa; Mrs Griffith-Jones and family, Mostyn Yioarage; Rev J. and Mrs Davies, Whitford Vicarage Mr Wm. 0. Piokering, Rhewl House; Mr L. J. Roberts, H.M. Inspector of Schools; Rev Wm. Williams, Mostyn; Mrs Barratt, Brocheulog; Misses Lloyd-Price, Glvn Abbot Misses Marsden and Miss Hamilton, N.P. Bank, Holywell; Mrs Sandars, Swiss Villa Mr and Mrs Robinson, Mr and Mrs Carman, Holywell; Mrs Pownall, Misses Pownall, Mrs Batters, Mrs Sutcliffe, Miss Morris, Mr and Mrs Wm, Roberts, Mr and Mrs Peers Jones, Mrs Gardner, Lletty. The Hon. Chairman having formally opened the entertainment, the programme was gone through. It would be invidious to partioularise, but, remarking upon the performers generally, it may be said the pianoforte and violin solos and duets were very pretty, and, for such youthful musicians, showed marked ability and a large amount of natural gift. The songs by individual and collective soholars were attractive, and those given in character were amusing, while the action songd were given with excellent precision. The programme was given as follows :—Part I—Pianoforte solo, Master Glyn Jones chorus. C The angel's song,' the School children; song, 'The pedlar,' Master Robert Storey; pianoforte solo, Miss Mamie Folds; song, The ribbon drill,' School children; pianoforte duet, the Hon. Gwynedd Mostyn and Miss Rita Folds; song, The three old maids of Lee' (in character), Misses Roberts, Ada Jones and Mary Egerton—soloist, Miss Naomi Jones Pianoforte solo, the Honble. Edward Mostyn; ng, I Life of the travelling monkey,' Master Moses Davies-monkey, Master Bennie Parry; ^iolin solo, Miss Gladys Jones (Vicarage)—Mrs Griffith-Jones, accompanist; song.' The mirror drill.' School children pianoforte duet,' Immer Wieder,' Misses Ada Jones and Jessie Dawson'; song, Trades School children; pianoforte jjolo, the Hon. Roderick Mostyn; song, Topsy larvey song,, School children; song, I Sailing or Slumberland,' School children. The second pwrt WM the operetta, Viotoria's Reign/ in which the caste was as follows:—Father Time-Miss Alice Williams, Britannia-Miss Naomi Jones; Queen Elizabeth—Miss Birdie Partis, lady-in-waiting Miss Prudence Roberts, courtiers—Masters Howard Sutcliffe and Arthur Cecil Roberts; Queen Ann-Miss Gwenllian Evans, lady-in-waiting- Miss Ada Jones, courtiers-Master Bobby Roberts and Reginald Barnard; followed by nurses, girl- graduates, soldiers, sailors, postman, telegraph messengers, railway officials, and policemen. Mr Willie Nuttall, A.L.C.M., Holywell, played the incidental music. Father Time with Britannia were the principal deolaimants, and the parts were ably sustained throughout. One effective part was the parades of soldiers to the tune of • The British Grenadiers,' and marines to Hearts of Oak,' and a corps of Red-oross heroes who told their b-ave work to the tune of 'Just before the battle, mother.' Then followed a troupe of pretty lady-graduates, declaring they would hold every post and every office. Police, fire brigade, railway, postal and telegraph officials succeeded in full costume. The history of the Victorian reign having been reviewed, Britannia declared they had done their best to show the progress of our own days, to which Queen Elizabeth somewhat hesitatingly admits, in Shakespeare parodied, There are things in Victoria's reign not dreamt of in our philosophy.' By the way, it might be mentioned that the operetta opened with The land of my fathers,' and other national airs representative of the United Kingdom, and closed with God save the Queen.' To produoe such a piece with suoh success must have entailed a very large amount of patient training, and this has evidently been done by Miss Bassett, the headmistress of Lady Augusta Mostyn's Sohool, and assistaut teachers (Miss Vaughan and Miss Griffiths); and to those ladies it must have been gratifying that their labours were so creditably awarded by the performances of their young scholars. A word about the costuming of the children, the elaborateness of which was strongly reminisoent of an effeotive pictorial advertisement in which the power and glory and extensiveness of the British Empire, with its varied national characteristics, was shown. The work of pre- paring the costumes was undertaken by Mrs Roberts, Glanydon and Mrs Peers Jones. What trouble, time, and expense that preparation oaused, could only be adequately conceived when the whole of the ohildren were assembled together in full regalia, and to those ladies many thanks are due. The group of performers at the close, as they ocoupied the stage, was a pretty picture that photography would have enabled to be handed down to prosperity. Truly, the oircumstances of the ocoasionjustified reproduction of a local event that will long be remembered as closely oonneoted not only with the celebration of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee but with the noble house of Mostyn. At the olose of the prooeedings, Dr..J. T. Jones proposed a vote of thanks to the Hon. Edward Mostyn for presiding, and remarked that the admirable way in which the duties of the ohair had been fulfilled by the noble soion of a noble house, showed that he will in time to come keep up the good name and fame and kind characteristics of the house of Mostyn (applause). The Hon. Edward Mostyn thanked Dr. Jones and the audience for their kind appreciation of the servioes which he had been most pleased to render. The performance was repeated to a crowded audienoe in the evening, the first part being slightly varied. The entertainment will be reproduoed at Mostyn National Schools on Tuesday next, at seven p.m.

Sir Percy and Lady Louisa Feilding. DEATH OF LIEUT. B. F. P. FEILDING OF THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S (62nd REGT.), BUT LATELY ATTACHED TO THE UGANDA RIFLES. THE MUTINY OF THE SOUDANESE. LETTER FROM THE LATE OFFIOER. The mail which arrived at the end of last week brought to his relatives the list letters written by Lieutenant Feilding, detailing the mutiny of the Soudanese, and the events which led up to his tragic death at Lubwas Usoga. It was at first intended that Lieutenant Feilding should accompany Major iuacdonald's expedition to Abyssinia, but this order was subsequently revoked, and Lieutenant Feilding had the duty of raising a force of three hundred Soudanese to join the expeditionary force. In the oourse of his last letter, Lieutenant Feilding writes:— En route to Uganda, "September 28th, 1897. "We are now starting new troubles in this country in faot, some of the Soudanese have mutinied. Before talliug you how it all happened, 1 had better first mention that after all I am not going on Major Macdonald's expedition (as was-, first arranged). This trouble first began in this way. For eome tima there has been great discontent amongst the Soudanese troops on aoeount of their pay-which, oertainly, is bad-their food, and their hard work. In this case three companies word told off to Major Maodonald's expeiition. Now, theie men had been on Safari'—that is, on the tramp for the last year—either on account of expeditions or esoort duty. Quite recently they had been on the Kamasia and Nandi expaditions, aDd had then b can marched back to Uganda—a three weeks' march to help to put down the rising therj and atter that was mostly over, had beea ordered all tha way baok hera (Eldoma Risvine) to join, as I said, Macdonald's expedition. Well, they did not like this because, besides the above-mentioned oomplaint, they were only allowed to bring one wife, thus leaving their families to themselves up in Uganda. Consequently, on the morning of Maeionald's start, they-or rather throa-quarters of them—bolted and came to the Ravine Station (Eldoma). I got news of it before they arrived from one of Maodonald's offloern, a certain Captain Kirkpatriok gallopping on to tell me. << when they got near, I and the native officer of my company at the Boma (fort) went out to meet them, to see if we could do anything to stop the movement. However, I could do absolutely nothing with them, nor would they obey a single order I gave them. At first I tried to get the Effendis (Soudanese non-commissioned officers) into the Boma on the pretence of having a talk over the matter, then to persuide them to encamp near the Boma, as I thought I might bo able to make them quietly I pile arms.' However, these efforts were in vain, and I had to give it up. "They then went & camped at the bottom of the hill on which the Boma stands. I went there with One half- company, which forms the garrison here (Eldoma) to a spot above their oamp, and gave them an order to pile arms' and come up. So, as they refused to do this, Kirkpatriok told ma to t.U the a that if within five minutes they would not obey the order, ,°.a1lld ka*e to fire on them. Even at this they said All right; if yOU want to fire, fire Con- sequently we did; they returning our fire. However, °U!w h o?mpany would ooly fire over their comrades heads no damage was done. After three volleys they boltal into the bush. So I sent out to tell thorn to camp near. to that we could see if we could not even then patoh up their grievanoe. This they did, camping about a thousand yards from the Boma. "You see, up here we entirely depead for our safety upon the SoudaDe ie, because if those oease to exist, the Waganda Roman Catholics and, very likely, the Mahommedans would rise In masse, and also all the other surroundiug tribes. Consequently it is a very serious matter, nnd we must try and stop it before it reaohes the remainder of the troops, la the evening Macdonald and his party arrived; also Jackson, whc, is now acting Commi-sioner, now that Major Ternam has gone home siok. After this we got a deputation up to the Boma to talk the matter over and lay their grievances before us. This lasted several days. However, it came to nothing and one night they all left, and they are now on their way up the road to Nandi or Uganda to try and get others to join them. After they left, another Effeodi and fifteen men deserted to join them from our garrison. "Here we are then, on a parallel road trying to get around them, and jackgoa has also told the offioer at Nandi to try and delay them, but not to fire on them unless absolutely necessary. He has also told him to tell the Wa-Nandi not to sell them food; and if they try to get it by raiding, they will then have perfect liberty to stick a spear into any one of them. Our plan is therefore to try and keep them out of Uganda, and starve them out until the rank and file come in, as it may tend to complicate matters if we fired on them again. Of oourse, the Effendis will not be forgiven, so probably in the end they will have to be hunted down. "Ithink it was a mistike of Kirkpatriok (my senior offioer at the station), having bean so batty at the beginning in firing on them. However, it is a thing of the past and oannot now be helped. Our column consist of armed Swahili porters, and about twenty Indian Sepoys belonging to Maodonald, with two Maxim guns. "I do hope we shall be able to prevent this from spreading, because if we do not, it will bs a very serious matter, as they are the only troops we have. What also makes it worse, is that it is following on before the rebellion in Uganda is really stamped out." FOUR HOURS HARD FIGHTING. Rfuter's Correspondent at Zanzibar, writing under date November 24 (published in the Times of Friday last), says:— The following description, dated Ootober 24, of the fight at Lubwas Usoga has been received from a correspondent who was present on the occasion:- "'You will have heard before this reaches you that most of the Nubians hive revolted and taken up arms against the English. I left Kampala, Uganda, on September 26 to visit Mumias. Before reaching Kisania, I received advices from Mumias that the Nubians had refused to go with Major Maodonald's expedition and had taken up quarters in our store at Eldoma Ravine. They had taken possession of 100 loads of food and stolen and broken into some loads, mostly of Government stores. In- stead of going direct to Muuaiai I called in at Pork Victoria to see if Lieutenant 0. W. Fowler, the Government officer there, had reoeired any later news, and it was very fortunate I did, as I should have fallen into the bauds of the rebels. I learnt at Port Victoria that the mutiuoai Nubians had reached Mumias. I left Port Victoria on Saturday, at 11 a.m., and reached Mumias Sunday afternoon. Mr Jaokson, Major Maodonald, and Doctor Mao- pherdon, with Lieutenant Feilding and two Euro- pean offioers, Captains Woodward and Kirkpatriok, were thera with 20 Indian troops. I I I On Monday morning we all left to follow up the Nubians, leaving Mzee Mauleji and his Swahilis tiguardtheboma. WereaohedLubwasUsogaou Monday, Ootober 18, and camped on the top of the hill, as the Nubians bad taken the Government fort, aad had Major Tbruston, N. A. Wilion, and W. Scott, the engineer of the Government staam launch, in their hands. 'On Monday afternoon about 100 Nubians came up with their arms, and after a short halt came near enough to say that they did not want to fight. We were all ready for them with two Maxims. After a lot of talk they were told to lay down their arms this they refused to do, and returned to the Boma (Fort). I I I On Tuesday morning, at 6 a.m., the Nubians left the Boma, and we thought they were coming up to make peaoe. We all fell in and took our posi- tions. They came within 50 yards of our oamp, and some of the Nubians with us who were faithful to Major Maodonald orossed over the lines and shook hands with their friends. We thought the Nubians were going to surrender, but before we were aware of their real intentions, and when the mutineers were only 60 yards off, they opened fire, and from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. we had a very h t battle. The Nabiane fell back under cover and kept u pa continual fire. Me Jaokson was SI.ot in the right breast, but not fatally, after one hour's fighting, and was most gallantly carried out of danger by Dr Maopheraon under a heavy fire. Lieutenant Feilding was shot through the lung and instantly killed. Dr Maopher- lion was wounded in the shoulder. Five Indian sepoys were wounded, 12 Swahilis killed and 29 wounlel. 'After the fight the Nubians sent one of their men up to make peace, and be was told that if they would hand over three Europeans we would talk about peace. We waited until 6 p.m. and received no news, and on Wednesday learnt that after the fight they retarned to the Boma and killed Major Thruston, N. A. Wilson, and W. Soott. News was sent at once to Kampala, and for the last three days a large force of Waganda and Wasogo have come to our assistance. Yesterday Mr Pilkington and Dr Cook, of the Church Missionary Sooiety, and Mr Gemmill arrlved from Kampala with a lot of ammunition. Lieutenant Maloney, Mr Malek, and R. R. Racey are expected to-day, and the Hotohkiss gun to-morrow. 'The Nubians at Kampala have had all their arms taken away from them, and all Europeans from Entebbi are at Kampala. Gemmill reported all quiet in Kampala. 'The mutineers have destroyed the Government steam launch. I hope there will be no further losses, but possibly, before the Fort is taken, there will be further heavy losses. 'There were about ten Nubians who remained faithful to Major Macdonald, to whom I Lave already referrei. These men we disarmel as a wiee precaution, but they splendidly proved their loyalty by pioking up the arllls of the dead Swahilis and joining bravely in the fight against their mutinous comrades.' (The following is taken from the London papers of the 20th inst). [TafiouGtH RBUIBB'S AGHNOY]. ZANZIBAR, DEC. 19. AcoordiDg to advices reoeived here from Uganda up to November 13, Major Maodonald was still besieging Lubwas Usoga, the Government fort, which place was occupied by the mutinous Nubians, Several small fights and skirmishes bad taken plaoe, all resulting in the repulse of the mutineers, though there had been a heavy loss of natives on both sides. The mutineers had been deserted by the Moham- medan Buganda, and had also lost one hundred and fifty killed and wounded, inoluding M'Baruk Effendi, one of the ohief ringleaders. The numerical strength of the rebels had been thus reduced to three hundred. Latter reports aanounoe that the fort had been attiokel by Uganda allies, but that the latter had been repulsed, though not before they had inflicted severe losses on the mutineers, still further reduoing their number to two hundred. Mr Jackson, the aoting Commissioner, who was severely wounded in the first fighting at Lubwas Usoga, was doing well. The 27th Bombay Infantry is proceeding from Mombasa to the present terminus of the railway, and will encamp at Ndi.

FLINT. MAYOR'S BANQUET AT THH TOWN HALL. INTERESTING HISTORICAL INCIDENTS. On Tuesday evening, His Worship the Mayor of Flint (Aid. Jos. Hall, J. P.), entertained the Corpora- tion and other gentlemen at the Town Hall. The reception of the guests took plaoe in the Oounoil Chamber, wheie they were formally announced to his worship the Mayor, by the Sergeant-at-Maoe. The Mayor wore the ohain of offioe. The banquet took plaoe in the Town Hall, which had teen effectively decorated. The tables wete very artistioally arranged and prettily set out with plants and flowers. The oatering was oartied out by Mr George Ardern, of the Cross Foxes Hotel, whose excellent cuisine always gives general satisfaction. Nothing was wanted on the prcSsnt occasion to add to the excellence of the menu submitted. The company included His Worship the Mayor, pre. sidiog, the Deputy Mayor, Councillor E. J. Hughe*, and Major O. E. Dyson, oaouping the vioe-ohaire. The Mayor was supported on his right by Mr J. Herbert Lewis, U. 1. (hon. freeman of the borough), Rev W. Ll. Nioholas, M.A., raotor, on the left with Mr Henry Taylor, F.S. A., town olerk Mr Sill, manager United Alkali Works Mr Kynaston, Ald. T. W. Haghes, Mr C. N. Hull, J.P., Mr John Hall, the Revs Owen Davies and T. Jonas-Roberts, D. Edwards, J. D. Williams and J. Davies; Messrs O. W. Jones, J. Roberts, Glasgow House; Hugh Jones, T. Bargeog, Jas. Jone, J. Wilson Owen, Hugh Hughes, Hugh OWOD, A. B. Lloyd, Shem Davies, Riohd. Evans, John Lloyd, T. Jones (post- master), T. Ryau, T. H. Mannington, R. F. Harrison, S. Wilkinson, T. Parry, M. S. R)gorp. Taylor (stationmasker), John Williams, R. Jones, Pentre; J. W. M. Evans, W. E. Bithell, Dr. J. H. Williams, Dr Kirkpatriok, Inspector R. Jones. The Mayor, after dinner, submitted in loyal tetnu the toasts of The Qaeeu,' and The Prince aad Prinoess of Wales and Royal Family," and af ter- wards that of The Bishop and Clergy and Ministers of all denominations,' coupling with the toast the name of tbe Rootor and the Rei D. Edward. The Rector responding eaid he was always glad to hear that toast. It was a recognition of the existence of God. A few days ago he oompleted his 17th year as Rector of Flint, and investigating the history of Flint, written by their Town Clerk, he found that of all clergymen he had held the liviag longer than any of h s preieoessors in the rectorship, during this oentary, and there was one thing t) be uotiied that no Reotor of Flint had died during the last three quarters of a century. He had had opportunities of leaving Flint but the time had been so pleasant and his h alth had been so good that he should think twioe before acoepting any other living (hear, hear). The Rev David Edwards, in responding, con- gratulated the Mayor on his aeeession to ths dignity of ohief magistrate of the anoient borough. Mr Henry Taylor, Town Olerk, in submitting the toast of the "Army and Navy aad Auxiliary forees," said with regard to the army, in medieval times toe streets of Flint rang to the tramp and clatter of armour-clad soldiers, ai they passed to and from their old Castle, by tbe Dee. Before the time of the staiiding army they had the armed regiments or trained bands and the earlicst were raised in Flintshire by that royalist soldier Colonel Moityn, At Mostyn Hall there were at the present time orders relating to the trained bands and very interesting it was to read the aocounts of the meetings aDd drills held on RhoBcamoi mountain. The Tommy Atkins of to-day came into existence at a muoh later date and he had rendered good account of himself in that "thinrad line" of which Napoleon said" I rejoice there are not more of them," and to-day on the Indian Frontier the same indomitable pluok was distinguishable not only by Britons but by those under the British flag (applause). With regard to the Navy-British tars had still the true grit as in the time of Diake and of Neleou, and the power of British supremaoyon the seas was well displayed at the memorable Jubilee review at Spithead. The Volunteers would no doubt give a good aocouut of themselves, and as an old offioer of the Flint Volunteers, who, joining in 1867, and holding a commission for many years, be could speak of the spirit that animated that branoh of the Home Defence. From ths Flint Corps many of its members hid passed into the line and h"d given a good acoountof themselves (hear, hear). He coupled with the toist the came of Major Dyson. In responding Major Dytoa referred in com- plimentary terms to the many volunteers who had joined the line during the years he had held command. Alderman T. W. Hughes proposed the toast of the County and Borough Magistrates and con- gratulated th) Mayor upon Laving been appointed a county magistrate since his appointment to the oivio ohaii and truattd that at the next Quarter Sessions he would qualify. Mr Hughes, as one practicing at the Flint Court, paid a high compliment to the Flint Borough Bonch upon their work and eaid they were a fair example of wLat Magistrates should be (hear, hear). Daring the years he had praoticed he had not known of a single initanoe of their deoifions being reversed by the higher Courts. He coupled with the toast the name of Mr C. N. Hull. Mr 0. N. Hull in responding to the toast, said a certain London editor had what he called a p'llory' in whioh he held up to public opprobrium the in- consistencies of mag strafes in their severiiies and leniencies so far, they in Fiint had eaca. el the pillory, for it was the endeavour of the Be.)oh to ad- minister their duties with justice and equity, tempered with meroy and leniency (hear, bear.) Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P., prjpcsed the toast of The Mayor and Corporation,' and in doing so con- gratulated the Mayor upon his accesfion to office, and congratulated the Corporation upon being presided over by one of the most e^le^med and respected and most worthy citizens of this a iciont borough (hear, hear)-aud they might congritulate themselves as tha burgeses of Flint. Some of his friends thought he was drinking his own bt alth- be was neither a county or borough magistrate, but he was a burgess of the borough. When they look. d baok over the centuries that had intervened piece the first Mayor of Flint was appointed towards the olofe of the 13th century, they taw what a long OODrde of history pre- sented itself for study. They had a worthy historian in their Town Clerk, who bad illuminated many a dark and obscure page in the history of the borough and county. If Alder joaa Hall bad been Mayor in 1297 he would have probably worn a coat of mail very muoh oftener than he wore the modern swallow-tail. The Mayor and Corporation woull in pla?e of peacefully banqueting, sally forth to fight and fight hard to defend themselves IJnd thtir ancient oastle they would fight tooth and Lail for their privileges, but they had fallou npln more peaceful days. They bad their little biokedngs. but still they were of suoh a nature that they could all gather round the hospitable board of the Mayor. Flint had a honourable history—there was nothing dishonourable coianeoted with it. They had a fair share of distinguished men in the days of old ani in reoent times there were several he could mention; tbe late Mr Riohard Muspratt, and aftuwlld, the Ifit3 Mr Alfred Dyson, who only reoently ratsed away. They were pleased to see Mr Sill. thesucco-s r of the late Ald. Dyson, present. There were two members of the Corporation absent—the ex-Mayor who was abroad, and tbe High-Sheriff who through illness was unable to be present. Alderman Hall bad been elevated to the highest position he coald occupy in his native town and they all. rdjoioed at the honour conferred atd wished him all happi, ess, prosperity and usefulness, and during t'ie ye.r of bi mayoralty rA&y the good old town have some share of the general prosperity of the oountry (hear, hear). The dark oloud had a strong indication of its silver lining and he hoped that it was an augury of good times to came.-The toast wai recftived with cheers aid musical honours for the Mayor and Mayore-s. The Mayor, in responding, thanked the company for the sincerity of their congratulations. He felt 0 somewhat perplexed at that juncture, and he failed to adequately expr si bis appreciation b'Jth personally and officially of toe kind sympathy wbiib had been expressed toward the Mayor and Corporation. He rejoioed tha'. he had not lived in medieval times, for he should net have tie pleasure of being present at this period. He had no ambition to wear a coat of mail, but he did take an interest in munioipal affairs and he was pleased to wear the robes of offioe, which though not to heavy as the anoient coat of mail were a symbol of the digaity of the offioe he held, and he trusted t) be aole to prove himself worthy of the confidence reposed in him. The Corpora.ion studied the welfare of the the borough and sought to perform their duties with satisfaction to all. He wished them all a hearty Christmas greeting. The Town and Trade of Flirt" was proposed by Mr Sill, who while apologising for his want of acquaintance with the town, owing to his recent advent, added that there wera not wanting healthy signs of returning prosperity in the old industries of the town, and also by the opening out of new and very promising industries. Mr J. W. M. Evans ably responded to the toast. Otner toasts were submitted during the evenit g, and songs were given by a number of geatlemeu.
MILWR. THE HOLYWELL-HALKYN MINING AND TUNNEL COMPANY, LIMITED. The second ordinary general meeting of the above company was held at Abbey Gateway, Cheater, on Monday laat The Chairman (The Honble. Ceoil T. Parker) presided. The meeting was fro forma only, and was adjourned to April next. The Chairman, in the course of his address, said that the progress made with the tunnel works had been satisfactory, as shown by the Engineer's repoit; and at the mine the prospects were good, and he hoped they would be in a position to do more than what they had promised in the prospectus. Mr N. R. Griffiths, R.S.M., F.G.S., the tunnel engineer, reported that nearly 200 yards had been driven, chiefly acoording to section 2 and 3 of the specifications, viz.: cast iron tubing and barrel arch. The ground passed through is as follows :-Made ground; silt; sand and gravel; boulder clay; grey clay; sand and gravel; blue shale (commencement of coal measures 4 ft. 6 in. thick); free stone rook, dipping at an angle of 39 degrees from the horizontal, decreasing as work progresses. The faoe is dry, and has been so for about 90 yards. Oapt. Peter Griffiths reported that the dressing floors, containing a 25-horse power engine, crushing mill, stone breaker, jiggers, sheds, &c., had been praotically completed, and that dressing would be commenced in a few days. They have from 408 to 500 tons of rich stuff on the pit bank ready for dressing, also a very large stock below ready for winding. There are three or four points in the mine looking exceedingly bright. The company has since the last general meeting materially increased its area, and the prospeots generally lead to the conclusion that the undertaking is likely to develop into the largest and most important of its kind in the district, as it has before it the development of undoubtedly a very rich lead and blende bearing zone,
