MERTHYR (CARMARTHEN). WE regret to have to announce the death of Mrs Evans, the wife of Mr D. Evans, Tynewydd, who died on Saturday, the 7th, ihst., after a com- paritively brief illness. The decease was the daughter of the late Mr Davies, of Postian, Abernant. Mrs Evans was universally respected in the neighbourhood, and a large number of people had come to the funeral to show their respect for her by following her mortal remains to its last resting place at Abernant.
LLANELLY. ALLEGED THEFT OF A WATCH.—On Saturday, before Mr R. Maclaran, George Cole and David Davie3, tin workers, were charged with stealing a silver watch, valued £3, on Thursday evening last. —Detective Howell Evans said he was called to Newmark's shop on Thursday night, where Davies was trying to pawn it. He said he had bought it for 73 6d from David Davies, New Dock, who had previously bought it from a Swansea pawn- broker for 20s. Witness asked him to accompany him to D. Davies' house, but when he got to the door of the shop he ran away. The next day, having received information that the watch was stolen, he arrested prisoner on the New Dock. Prisoner admitted that he had stolen the watch from the bedroom, in accompany with Cole. When the prisoners were brought together later on, Cole declared his innocence, and stoutly denied that be had assisted him.—The bench discharged Cole, Davies being remanded on bail till Wednes- day.
CARDIGAN. MYSTERIOUS CASE OF DROWNING.—The body of William Smith, who, as reported in our last issue, was mysteriously missed from the steam trawl Ryde near Cardigan Bar when on her way to sea, was picked up on Saturday morning on the Poppit Sands, on the Pembrokshire side of th9 River Tivy, almost buried in the sand, and at the very spot where he Ryde had lain for two days while boats were searching for the body of the missing man. An inquest was held on Saturday evening, before Mr Ivor Evans, the coroner for North Pembroke- shire, when the jury asked for an adjournment of the enquiry to enable a doctor to examine the body, and give evidence as to whether a small cut and bruise under the left ear were likely to have been caused before death, rumours being prevalent of a disagreement between the deceased and another member of the crew previous to sailing. On Tuesday the Ven. Archdeacon North held his court for the admission of churchwardens and his vernal visitation for the Cardigan district of the archdeaconry in St Mary's Church, Cardigan, which was largely attended by the clergy and churchwardens the venerable Archdeacon delivered an elaborate charge, dwelling more particularly on the virulence of the assaults on the National Church, the new education code, the Tithe Rentcharge Bill, the endowments of the Church, the public services of the Church as compared with the services of Nonconformists, the necessity of the upholding of the musical portion of the Church service, as an integral part of the service, and other subjects, concluding with an earnest exhortation to the clergy to perform their Iduties in their various ministerial spheres devoutly, conscientiously, and faithfully. At the conclusion of the English address the Arch- deacon made some telling observations in Welsh to the churchwardens, impressing upon them the importance of their duties.—After the charge a large number of the clergy, presided over by the archdeacon, met at luncheon at the Black Lion Hotel, where the various points of the charge were discussed. JOINT EDUCATION COMMITTEE.—The third meeting of the Pembrokeshire Joint Education Committee was held at the Shire-hall, Haverford- west, on Wednesday, Mr Lewis James, Bryn- bank, presiding. The other members present were :—Mr B. Rees, Granant; and Mr W. S. de Winton.- -A deputation from Cardigan, of which the Mayor (Mr 0. Beynon Evans) was the spokesman, attended, and stated the claims of Cardigan to an intermediate school. A school district, said the speaker, should be formed, with Cardigan as its centre, which would cover about 40 parishes, with a population of some- thing like 25,000. It was anticipated that at least 15 per thousand would attend the schools. A building, it was hoped, would be obtained ground free. They also trusted to be able to raise sufficient subscriptions. The Hon. Mr Bruce, replying to a remark to the effect that it was intended at Cardigan to have a mixed school, said this involved a question of morality more than education. Mr Ivor Evans observed that it had occurred to the deputation to have registered boarding-houses should they be fortunate enough to get a school at Cardigan. The Hon, Mr Bruce I don't think any man has yet dared to suggest mixed boarding schools. He would like to add that public opinion in Wales appeared to be setting its face against mixed schools. Of course it would cost much more to house children separately than other- wise. After some further remarks respecting the curriculum the proceedings ended. <:>
TENBY. MEMORIAL BRASS TO THE LATE MR. CHARLES ALLEN.—A handsome memorial brass to the memory of the late Mr Charles Allen, J.P., of 10, Norton, has been placed in the Town-hall here. The cost was defrayed by a public subscription. Foil a couple of hours on Saturday night several of the streets at Tenby were tilled with a riotous and disorderly mob, caused by a large number of men of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, stationed at Penally Barracks for ball tiring, coming into the town and afterwards into contact with the civilians. The row commenced in St. George-street, the police being unable to do anything. Stones were thrown and several persons struck, one being an officer of the regiment in plain clothes, who received a nasty blow on the head whilst endeavouring to get the soldiers to retire to barracks. The picquet were of little or no assistance. A man named Frederick Smith received a bad cut on the head— necessitating the aid of Dr. J. G. Lock—either from a bayonet or the buckle of a soldier's belt. It is presumed from the former, as he now has in his possession the bayonet wrested by himself from the soldier who struck him. This is the second Saturday night that the town lias been in the same disturbed state, and complaints are loud of the insufficiency of the police to cope with such a number of soldiers if they are disposed for a row. It was past midnight before the streets assumed their normal quietness.
HAVERFORDWEST. The Hon. Thomas L. James, ex-Postmaster General of the United States. In his accounts of his visit to Wales which appeared in an American paper, speaking of the future of Haverfordwest, states —"The question naturally arises whether this old town is to remain at a standstill or will it take a new lease of life and commence a career of greatness without a paralled in its history. To this I answer that its future seems assured. The revival in the past few years of the old Welsh spirit, the unity of purpose with which the members of Paliament from Wales, whether Liberals or Conservatives, press the claims of their constituents upon the Government, give gratifying proof that the future is full of promise for the 'land of our fathers.' There are no more earnest, fearless, and eloquent champions of Wales in Parliament than Admiral Mayne, Sir John H. Puleston. D. A. Thomas, and Alfred Thomas—the first two leading Conservatives, the last two prominent Liberals. On matters concerning Wales, partisanship is ignored—they are Welshmen. The effect of this union will not only aid the cause of higher education, but develop the commerce and industries of the principal cities. It is not unlikely that a line of Amencan steamers will shortly arrive and depart from Milford Haven, the finest and most neglected port in the United Kingdom. As Haverfordwest is only four miles from Milford Haven, the establishment of this steamship line will "ive such an llllpeuB to the trade and commerce of the town as has never, with the single exception of Cardifl, been known in Wales. It will not, then, be long before Haverfordwest will absorb Milford and become a modern city with 250,000 inhabitants. It will be the home of vast industries, the seat of a mighty commerce with every part of the planet, and the stopping-place between New York and London. The Fctnbrohe- tfhirc Herald will become a Metropolitan daily journal, rivalling the Limr/tool Mcrcury or the 'Cardiff' News or Western Mail of to-day. A new and convenient hotel will of course take the place of the inn.'
ST. CLEARS. PETTY SESSIONS.—On Tuesday last—before Mr John Beynon, (chairman), Dr. Lawrence, Mr M. H. M. Yelverton, Mr H. S. Carver, Mr C. W. Jones, and Mr J. H. Thomas.—Mr William Alma Rowlands, of Frog-street, Laugharne and Thomas Williams, of Frog-street, were summonCll by P.C. John Jones, for breach of the peace, on the occasion of a recent local wedding. The defendants not appearing, the service of summons was proved by P.C. John Jones. Their worships disposed of the case as follows :— that the defendants be bound over in the sum of £5, to keep the peace for six months, and to pay the costs (8s. each. The defendants were repre- sented by the wife and sister respectively, who paid the costs. The defendants will have to appear personally at the next petty sessions to be bound over. We regret to announce that Captain Harrison, J.P., has met with an accident—a sprained ankle we are informed—which precluded his being present at the petty sessions on Tuesday last. We fully sympathise with the gallant Captain, and sincerely trust he will soon be all right again.
I. LLANFYNYDD. SOMERSETSHIRE INDUSTRIAL HOH;, BATH.— All the boys belonging to this Home abiding in the above parish with their masters, met their agent, the Rev. D. Griffiths, Llangranog, at the Portis Gate Inn, last Tuesday. In answer to questions put them by the rev. gentlemen the boys praised their masters as being both kind and considerate to them in their new homes in Wales. After a cheerful address to the boys, Mr Griffiths addressed the masters and said that boys are sent out of the schools to situations that offer them suitable employment combined with the comforts and kindly treatment of a home. The managers hoped that employers would exercise parental control over the boys entrusted to their charge, and give them the benefit of a moral and industrial training that 'vould put them on the way to become useful members of the community. A sumptuous spread of tea and cake having been partaken of the boys engaged themselves in some rustic sports, which brought a most enjoyable afternoon to a close.
TYNYGWNDWN (CARDIGANSHIRE). CHORAL FESTIVAL.—On Wednesday of last week a United Choral Festival was held at Tynygwndwn, when the following choirs attended, Capel Erw, Drefach, Ebenezer, Ffaldybrenin, Llanfair, Soar, Tynygwndwn, and Cilcennin. The conductor was the Rev. Emlyn Jones, Treforris, an 1 he was supported by the Rev. Caleb Davies, Llanon. The morning was rather unfavourable, rain coming down steadily. Nevertheless, a very large number of persons attended, and the chapel was crowded. A rehearsal was given in he morning, when all the choirs went through the several tunes very satis- factorily under the baton of Mr Emlyn Jones. The good style, manner, and simplicity in which the conductor read the hymns and led the tunes were admirably and highly appreciated by the congregation. He passed a high eulogium on the leaders of members of the several choirs for the proficient manner in which they discharged their' duties, and urged upon them to exercise the same care and attention when worshipping in their own chapels. The meetings were very largely attended by members of all denominations in the district. Great credit is due to the good people of Tynygwndwn for having so hospitably enter- tained the visitors to whose wants they ministered faithfully and well.
ABERAYRON. CYMANFA. —On Friday last, a "cymanfa ysgolion" was held at the Tabernacle (C.M.) Chapel, when there were several of the neigh- bouring schools present. In the evening there was a competitive meeting, when a large pro- gramme was gone through. The Rev. Evan Morris was in the chair. CHORAL FESTIVAL.—The Church choral festival will be held here to-day (Friday). It promises to be the best as regards the singing that has ever been held in Trinity Church. The Rev. J. R. Jones, B.A., curate of Lampeter, will be the intoner. WED DIM;—The marriage of Mr John M.

Evans, sister to the bride Miss Griffiths, Old Bank Miss Rona Evans, Llanelly Miss Bessie Jones, Castle House Miss Olive Jones, Old Bank; and Miss Alice Jones, Old Bank. The chapel choir, under the leadership of Mr J. R. Phillips, sang an anthem which had been com- posed for the occasion, the words by Watcyn Wyn and the music by Mr D. Jenkins, Mus. Bac., Aberystwyth. Mr L. J. Roberts, B.A., presided at the harmonium, and at the finish played Mendelssohn's Wedding March." The town, especially Market-street, was quite gay with bunting, and pistol firing was indulged in during the day to a large extent. At the con- clusion of the ceremony, the wedding party, together with a few additional guests, adjourned to the Lloyd Jack Arms," where a sumptuous breakfast was laid out.

LAMPETER. THE HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT.—A deputa- tion from the shop-assistants waited upon the mayor (Mr T. Lloyd), on Friday evening last with view of seeking his assistance, to secure the long expected half-holiday. Mr Stephen Davies, Pontfaen shop, introduced the deputation, and said that their object as shop-assistants, was to obtain a little more relaxation than they had at present, and as they knew his Worship to be in sympathy with their cause, they approach him with confidence that he would use his influence in their favour, and help them to secure the much needed reform. He (Mr Davie") thought that with a little co-operation and unity no one would suffer by the proposed arrangement, and if all the tradesmen agreed to close their shops at 2 o'clock in the afternoon once in the week, he was sure that the ladies and gentlemen of the town and neighbourhood would be willing enough to do their shopping in the morning. The shop- assistants would do all they could to facilitate the business and make it run smoothly, so that the employers could have no grounds for com- plaint. Mr D. J. Mejicks, Corner Shop, also spoke, and said that the half-holiday had been adopted at less important places than Lampeter, and there was every reason for adopting it here as well. Some gentlemen might think that they wanted to drive away customers who came on that afternoon. Of course they were desirous that no customers should be lost, and, in fact, they would do all they could to bring in customers, and in considering what afternoon should be elected, they were quite willing to submit the choice to the employers, so as to study their convenience tirst. The Banks had a half- holiday, and so did the solicitors' clerks, and it was rather hard upon the shop-assistants to be denied a few hours recreation once in a week. The Mayor, in reply, said that he was wholly in sympathy with the movement, and would readily give the matter any support that lay in his power. He regretted that the half-holiday had not been obtained in the face of the many resolu- tions which had been passed initsfavour, namely, by the Foresters at their anniversary on the 9th November last, and afterwards at a meeting of the ratepayers, and finally by the Town Council. All seemed to agree that it ought to be granted, but somehow there was nobody to take the matter up there and then. He was glad that the assistants had now taken the matter up and went about it with a good spirit, and in so gentlemanly a minner. He would suggest that a memo- randum be drawn up, and signed by all the tradesmen, consenting to close on some afternoon in the week, and if they liked he would draw it up, and undertake to lay it before those tradesmen who were members of the Town Council, who, no doubt, after the resolution they had already passed, would willingly subscribe it first. On his asking the deputation how soon they thought the half holiday could take place, they replied about the beginning of July. His Worship thought that the 7th of July would be very suitable it being Ffair-fach-yr-haf at Llan- ybyther on that day. After thanking the mayor, the deputation left with joyous hearts. It appears that with one exception all the trades- men of Lampeter have either already signed or consented to sign the memorandum drawn up by the Mayor, but hopes are entertained that this gentleman will relent as he is not at all a bad un" at heart. BOAHD OF GUARDIANS.—A meeting of the board was held on Friday, the loth inst. Present John Fowden, in the chair; Mr Lewis Davies, Gelly Rev. Daniel Jones, vicar, Lam- peter; Mr David Davies, Lampeter Messrs Samuel Davies, Bettws Bledrws; Thomas Price, Llanycrwys; William Williams, Llanfairclydogau William Williams and Evan Jones, Llanllwni Daniel Evans, Llanfihangel- rhosycorn; William Rees, Llangybi David Thomas and Evan Davies, Llanwenog Thomas Evans, Llanwnen Thomas Evans, Llanybyther John Rees and David Evans, Pencarreg John E.

David Dudley attended the board, and consented to pay 7: per week towards the maintenance of his wife and children. ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE.—A meeting of the assessment committee was held after the board, Mr Lewis Davies in the chair. -Supplemental valuation lists for the undermentioned parishes were allowed, viz., Llanllwni, Cellan, Cilian, Llangybi, Pencarreg, Lampeter, Llanfairclydogau, and Llanllwni. Notices of appeal had been given on behalf of the Manchester and Milford Railway Company against the recent valuation of Mr D. P. Davies, and Mr R. G. Smith, from Messrs. Griffith Jones A: Co., Aberystwyth, attended the meeting, and asked that a day be fixed for hear- ing the appeal. CRICKET.—On Monday last the St. David's College School played on their own ground, a scratch team got together by Mr J. W. Edwardes of St. David's College. The visitors went in first and made 7G runs, 47 of which were contributed by Mr D. H. Williams, (S.D.C). The school on going in commenced to play carefully and steady, but when Mr J. S. Jones made his appearance at the wicket, the complexion of the game was suddenly changed as he soon made the fielders to look a little lively. He pu nished the bowling unmercifully, and was not long in running up his score to 60, when, however, he was clean bowled by the Rev. Pryce Jones. The Rev. T. M. Evans, D. C. Morris and Leaker, were the only others who got double hgures. The bowling of Mr J. W. Edwardes and the Rev. Pryce Jones for the visitors was good throughout, and Leaker for the school promises to turn out an useful bowler. Appended is the score — Mr J. W. Edwards, Rev. Pryce Jones, 1 D. H. Williams, 47; J. W. Edwards, 2; J. W. Jones, 0; S. D. Jones, 0; L. R. Bowen, 5; D. P. Thomas, 0; H. T. Millett 8 J. B. Thomas, 3; F. D. Pierce, 1; T. Daviet:" 2 cxtras, Ii; total, 71). St. David's College School D.

Thomas, 1; extras, 23 total, 1:3(i. THE COMPENSATION CLAUSES. — We are informed that the Rev. Daniel Jones (vicar), has received the following letter from Mr Goschen's secretary — "I am directed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer to acknowledge the receipt of your letter forwarding a resolution protesting against compensation clauses of the Government Local Taxation Bill, which will create a permanent vested interest for the sale of intoxicating liquors, these licences being now conferred for the term of one year only.' I am to point out, in reply, that the resolution repeats the widespread error that the clauses in the Bill confer any right or property which is not acknowledged or has not been acknowledged hitherto. The good will attached to public-houses has always been assessed for probate duty. The interest attaching to a licensed house has been bought up whenever municipal bodies had to acquire public-houses for street improvements. If the contentions of lC opponents of the Bill were well founded, muni- cipal bodies would simply have waited for the expiration of the annual licences and have them shown the magistrates that the street improve- ment rendered the renewal of the licence unnecessary. But what may best convince you of the error of your friends is that Mr Gladstone himself has spoken of the 'vested interest of the liquor tr: de and f title.' ■ The declarations of th lea 1 jr of Ll)fl Lt x- I party, endorsing as they did what was the pre- vailing sense of equity, assurred the trade, far more emphatically than the Government Bill, that had rights beyond the year in which the licence was granted. The clauses of the Bill, at all events, only authorise county councils to purchase for the purpose of extinction a certain of a number of public-houses which otherwise might be sold in that market, while the previous declarations of Mr Gladstone and other acknow- ledge 'vested rights.' Every fair-minded person shou'd accordingly admit on learning these facts that these clauses neither create nor admit any right which has not existed or been acknowledged to exist before."
ABERYSTWYTH. CRICKET.—St. MichwUs Church, v. Holy Trinity Church Clubs.—A friendly match was played between the above teams on the ground of the latter on Saturday afternoon, June 14th,-and resulted in a win for the St. M.C.C.C., by six runs. The excellence of the bowling and fielding is shown hy the dismissal of either side for such comparatively small scores in the first innings Messrs Holmes and Berry taking the first six wickets of the H.T.C.C., for two runs (the latter performing the hat trick.) E. J. Evans bowled well for S.M.C.C., and Dougall batted well for H.T.C.C., appended is the full score:—S.M.C.C —A. Holmes, 7--9; Marshall Kerry, 2-8; J. E. Evans, 4—0; G. M. Wade, 7 -0; A. H.

LLANDOVERY. ITALIAN itinerant musicians are getting some- thing more than a nuisance in this town and its neighbourhood. On Monday about half-a-dozen parties passed through here. MARRIAGE. — We have much pleasure in announcing the marriage of Miss Williams, Rhosybedw, Stone-street, Llandovery, to Mr Richards, Nantllindir, which happy event took place at Llanfair Church, last Saturday. CRICKET. — Llandovery Cricket Club v. Christ College, Brecon. — This match was played at Llandovery, on June 14th, in beautiful weather, and on an excellent wicket. Winning the toss, the visitors batted first, and made 78. Mr Peacock 22, Mr M.P. Jones 14, were the only ones tor escli double figures. The home team then went in, when good batting by D. T. M. Jones and R. C. Kitts, made 106, being 28 runs in arrears. The visitors went in a second time & made 100, the chief scorers being Mr Peacock 45, not out, and Mr M. P. Jones 26. The fielding of the Brecon boys was very good. Score :—Brecon J. H. Evans, 3—4 D. Walters, 2-0; Mr Allen, 3-5; LI. Thomas, 6—45 Mr Peacock, 22-26; M. P. Jones, 14—0; T. Morgan, 7—3; C.

BETTWS BLEDRWS. This pretty, costly, and sacred little parish church was the scene of an interesting ceremony on the 10th inst. There and then Mr Moffat of Falcondale became a member of. the Benedictive Order by taking to his bosom lovely Miss Cotterell of Derry Ormond home farm. Despite the impressive ceremony and ritual, and the respectable company present,all interest centred in the lovely and well-matched pair at the altar. The bridegroom through making a host of friends, has become an acclimatised Cardi, and as such is very much respected indeed. On the other hand the advent of Miss Cotterell in to the county has been the safety valve to the long confined enthusiasm generated by the unvaried kindness and generosity of her uncle, Mr William Cotterell. To enumerate the invitees or the large number of presents would be to descend to trivialities, and it is sufficient to mention that those who looked to the surroundings of the centre picture found every thing tasteful and becoming. The ceremony being over, and the wedding breakfast being demolished, the whole vale of Tulas escorted the young pair to Derry Ormond station off on their honey trip to North Britain, whence hails the bridegroom. As a parting salute, Mr Samuel Davies, Coedpark, the "Sims Reeves" of the neighbourhood, sang the following lines, the company joining in the chorus. Miss CottereH, Derry Ormond, And Moffat, Falcondale, Their secret blush and cooing, In publio now prevail. Respectable in position, To blame them there is none, Their furnace of affection, Reduceth two to one. They join in life together, For better and for worse la fair and stormy weather, With full and empty purse— United to be happy, In love, and little need Heaven bless them far, with lovely, Bright pledges of the deed. Their home be one of teaching— To lead, to guide, to call, May Pa and It Ma" be ruling, Uniting one and all. A life of heart-felt goodness, May God teach them to steer, In health, in bliss, in harness, Throughout a long career. Chorus :—Their friends from far and nigli, And all their neighbours by Lampeter, Silian, Bettws, All hail their marriage tic."
NEWCASTLE EMLYN. DRVNKENjiss. — On Wednesday last, a navvy named Michael Mc'Dalment was charged by P.C. David Jones with having been drunk and disorderly in a highway at Llandyssul, on the previous day. Drs. Joshua Powell and David Lloyd were the magistrates, and defendant was sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment with hard labour. There is another charge of a more serious nature against the defendant, and he will be tried at the next Llandyssul Petty Sessions. FAIR.—An old established fair known as "Ffair haf gyntaf was held in this town, on Thursday last, and was well attended. Carriage horses were in great demand, and prices varied from £40 to JE50. Cattle also sold well, although they were about £2 per head, lower than at previous fairs held this year. There was a larger attendance of dealers than we have seen for many years, and much benefit must have been derived by farmers and others residing in the town and neighbour- hood. ARCHIDIACONAL VISITATION. — The Ven.
