That such clear, soft, rich music could be obtained from rough pieces of rock was most marvellous, and the dexterity with which the hammers were played upon the stones evoking such charming music was surprising. The songs and duetts were given with 11 z!1 considerable taste, and the entertainment as a whole was one of surpassing excellence.

SUNDAY SCHOOL MEETING.—On Sundav last the bi-monthly meeting of the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Sunday Schools of this district was held at Rehoboth Chapel. At 9.30 a.m. the adults were catechised on a given subject, after which a meeting of Sunday school teachers was held at which meeting the various schools in the district were represented, and several matters of interest to Sunday school work were discussed. At 1.;)0 p.m., the members of Rehoboth school assembled and formed themselves into a procession for the purpose of going to meet the Bryn Zion and Penymaes Sunday schools, the procession was formed at the top of the New-road, by the Bryn Zion school, and in Bagillt-street by the Penymaes school, the pro- cession which was of considerable length numbered about 500 adults and children. When they returned to Rehoboth chapel the children of the several schools were questioned by the Rev. E. Jones, Ruabon, and the manner in which the children answered was most creditable to those who had takcu an interest in them. Whilst the several schools conducted themselves creditably, we were highly pleased with the singing and answering of the Bryn Zion sonool children, aud their conduct on Sunday last clearly shows that they appreciate the labours of those who take an interest in them. In like manner, the children of Moriah chapel, Penymaes, acquitted themselves most creditably to themselves and their teachers. Dui-iu- the meeting hymns were sung by the children of the three schools, those of Rehoboth being led by Mr. John Roberts (Peryddon), Bryn Zion, by Mr. John Morgan, and of Penymaes, by Mr. G. S.

An extraordinary meeting of the Local Board was held on Tuesday, called upon a requisition signed by Messrs. E. J. Davies, Joseph Garner, and John Carman, for the purpose of taking into consideration the advisability of holding a great fair in Holywell for the sale of cattle, horses, sheep and pigs, &c., for the convenience of farmers re- siding in this part of the county. The chair was occupied by Mr. H. A. Cope (chairman of the Board), and there were also present—Messrs. Jos. Garner, E. J. Davies E. Bryan, David Williams (High-street), John Carman, John Jones, and David Williams (Cross-street). In response to a call from the chairman, Mr. Garner said the meeting was called for the "purpose of assisting the farmers of the district. The foot and mouth disease had broken out in the neighbourhood of Caerwys, which prevented the monthly fairs being held in that town, and the farmers were desirous of having a convenient market for the disposal of their stock. They had now a monthly fair in Holywell, at which he understood horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, and other stock may be offered for sale. The impression appeared to prevail that nothing but pigs could be sold at the Holywell fair and he thought that it would be a benefit to the town and an advantage to the farmers if it was made generally known that horses, cattle, sheep, and other animals could be offered for sale at the fairs on the first Friday in each month.—Mr. E. J. Davies said that several farmers had spoken to him as to the advisability of opening a general fair in Holywell. The farmers now were placed in the unfortunate position of having no fairs open to them for the disposal of their stock any nearer than Mold or Abergele, and it would be a great convenience to them to have a fair—that at Caerwys being now closed—nearer home where they could convert their stock into available cash.—The Clerk asked how it was intended to hold the fair ? —Mr. E J. Davies said that the fair now held was one simply for the sale of pigs, and if greater pub- licity was given to it they might got farmers to bring their stock to the fair. He would suggest that the horse fair should be held on the Work- house-road, the cattle fair on the Bagillt-road, and sheep and pigs might be sold in the Cross-road, or they might be able to make arrangements with Mr. Roberts (timber merchant) for the use of his field for the sale of pigs aud sheep.—The Clerk pointed out that a special fair could not be held without permission of Quarter Sessions, but the present fair was open to the sale of all of animals. — After considerable discussion, in the course of which Mr. John Jones stated that it would be a great convenience to farmers to have a general fair at Holywell, Mr. Bryan moved that it be made public to the farmers that the ordinary fair at Holywell on the first Friday in each month was open for the sale of cattle, sheep, and horses, &c., and that the Beard would be prepared on the receipt of a requisition from the farmers of the district, to go to the expense of making the faet generally known. The motion was seconded by Mr. John Jones, and was unanimously carried.
-+- BUCKLEY. PRESENTATION TO THE REV. H. ELVET LEWIS.— On Thursday evening week, a public meeting was held in the Congregational Chapel, when the Rev. H. E. Lewis, the recent piistor of this church, was presented with a handsome painting of Christ before Pilate," aud with it a purse of gold. The chair was taken by Mr. William Jones, deacon of the church. There were present on the platform Mr. John Taylor, jun., and Mr. Jwl Williamson (local preachers connected with til" church), Ati- Joseph Griffiths (deacon), Revs. W. Jfobley (C. M.) D. Burford llooke (secretary to the Coil Union), W. Evans (Cefn Mawr), D B° Evans (Mold), and Wm.. 1 ughes (Dolg,llv). The addresses given by the above gentlemen wn-e all very com- plimentary to the talent and nhitity of the y-iing preacher, all testifying to the jljirl) opinions thpy lia.d of him as a tnnnrl, p"QlrT, and preacher ''The pre«ent.t,mi was mnde hy j h Is wlu-h was formally acknowledged by Mr. Lewis in a very touching speech.—On Sunday week he preached at his new church to o-ood oon<nvfl..u,ions m the morning on ;UU1 Him crucified and in the evening from, the words "Wait on the Lord.

The University boat race was on Monday rowed in cold, cheerless weather, and after a gallant struggle on the part of Oxford, Cam- bridge, which kept the lead from the start, won in 21 min. 49 sec. by three lengths. The time according to Benson's chronograph was 21 min. 0 39 sec. against 21 min. 18 sec. last year. An extraordinary series of attempts to destroy the village of Cark, on the shores of Morecambe Bay, was made on Saturday. Some persons, unknown at present, poured paraffin oil against the doors and into the cellars of several mills, shops, and the two postoffices, and made attempts to ignite the inflammable oil. In two instances these efforts were successful, but the flames were extinguished before much damage was done.
