I LLANDOVERY. SEASONABLE BENEVOLENCE. According to an announcement made throughout the town last week and to-day by our friend, the town crier, a large sum of money was divided on Monday by the gentlemen of the town among the deserving poor of the place. CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. Christmas passed off very quietly at Llandovery. All the places of business, it is, perhaps needless to say, were closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. The number of visitors was, but few, and the natives conducted themselves in a very quiet and orderly way. We are happy to state that no scenes of drunkenness were witnessed in our streets. EISTEDDFOD AND CONCERT. On Christmas Day, mainly through the energy and enterprise of Mr Dan Davies, Stone-street, a well got up eisteddfod and concert were held at the British School. Mr Davies's object in promoting the event was to cast a cheerful ray, at this season, into the hearts of natives and visitors, and judg- ing from the success that crowned the movement he certainly succeeded. This is specially true with regard to the concert throughout which the building was crowded to its utmost capacity. As to the singing it was noted by all "to be a treat." The proceeds, should there be any surplus after paying all expenses, will, we understand, go in aid of some deserving local object. Judging from the success of the few--they are very few-concerts held here this season, we have no hesitation in saying should Mr Dan Davies or some other equally public gentleman of our town promote snch gatherings say, once a fortnight throughout the remainder of the winter, a good sum could be realized in aid of our Drill Hall, It is so awfully dull here that it is matter for small wonder that people are losing heart and getting sleepy and melancholy. The promoter of the present eisteddfod was most happy in the selection of a conductor, Mr D. Llanfair Evans; although, a new hand, discharged the duties of the post in a way that called forth from all warm eulogiums. ui tne cnairman at the concert nothing need be said for was he not the genial pastor of the Calvinistic Methoiists, the Rev T. E. Thomas, Baileyglas, whose qualities for the position are two well and widely known to need any comment from our feeble pen.
