NEUADDFAWR FOXHOUNDS. This pack met on Monday, December 28th, at Tyglyn Aeron, New Bridge, and found directly close by, in Major Lewes' young coppice, bolting away over the top towards Cilcennin, leaning to the left through the dingle for Pencnwc, Penwern, and into Ffoselig plantation. Here the red rambler dodged and made in and outside the covers several rings, and shaking his pursuers by a little check, which was very welcome though only 20 minutes going, we had some bellows to mend and second wind to get. The bye-roads and turf were terrible about here, the result of the late frost and rain. The nags were knee deep in the yellow clay every stride, but thanks to our quarry, he got us out by piloting us over the heatherly bog to Cefengar. Thence leaving to the left over Tirbach, he crossed Aberystwyth road to Rhiwlas Issa, pointing for Bethania, but swerved and crossed Penuwch road, and paddled over the fens and hills straight to Tri Chrug. The hunting was now grand, being on open ground, hounds sailing like a flock of wild geese, each hound taking the line in turn- Pob ei ya Ilanw'i le Ar aswy ac ar de Mewn eiliad on wnai alw Yn groew, Dyma fe." He crossed the Talsarn and Aberystwith road and ran parallel with it for half-a-mile, and re- crossed it at Gwarallt and skirted Ralltgoch dingle, then turned to Penlan, by so doing, had to cross the road the fourth time, leaving Gelli to the left went for Cilbwn. The line now became more zig-zag, and music better as the vale was reached. Sailing the river Aeron with the hounds close on his brush- Yr afou oer ei chol I'r fodfedd ar y ddol, Gymmerodd y bytheuaid "Fel h wyaid ar ei ol." He proceeded to Llanlear, and in the thickets there hanged a good while, and made a ring round Blaenwern then crossing Llangeitho road to Penwern, and left the Lampeter and Aberayron road just above Temple Bar for Wernfeilig. Here the red rover turned very short to the left, and re-crossed the two roads simultaneoasly at Bryngoleu finger post to Blaenpant, to see the bard (Cerngoch) at Penbryn (as one of the field remarked) for a Epitaph but- Y bardd a droes yn elyn, A bloeddiodd, Tali-ho.' And the wily. visitor turned short and retraced his course, and made a semi-circle round Temple Bar and over Penwern to Llanlear, thence down the meads along the river, and about 100 paces below Brynog Bridge, took the water and was rolled over on the banks the other side- Ca'dd cwn y Neuaddfawr" Y fuddugoliaeth 'nawr, 0 dan ei traed 'roedd Madyn Yn llerpvn ar y llawr." Found at 10 minutes past 11 a.m., finish half past one. The pack divided at Penwern, few hounds took a fresh fox and ran it to ground at Pencwuc wood before the first was killed. As the meet was not chronicled the attendance was not large, and at the finish the master divided the odds and ends to those in the pig skin. T. Jones, Aeron House, Dowlais, got the mask, and D. Richards, Penlone, Aeronian and others got the pads, and Jenkins, Blaenplwyf, E. Jones, Hafodygors, have to win theirs on a future day. TRI CHRUG.
