LAMPETER. COBRECTION.—In our report of the tithe case tried at the County Court here on Tuesday, the 20th instant, we alluded to the uncomfortable condition of the hall during the hearing of the case, and that the appeal of the officials to have the gas lighted was disregarded by the constables." It is only fair to P.S. Denis Williams and P.C. David Davies to state that they had nothing what- ever to do with the lighting of the hall, and that no appeal was made to them as reported, and we are sorry that it appeared. MAGIC LANTERN ENTERTAINMENT.— On Monday evening list the juvenile members of the St. Peter's Church Band of Hope were treated to a magic lantern entertainment by Mr D. Lloyd, Peterwell.

The entertainment was concluded with "God save the Queen." The Rev. J. R. Jones, curate, was in the chair. ST.

Daniel Griffiths, and Mr David Evans, Cellan, be appointed to wait upon the Main Roads Committee, on the 28th inst., in order to explain to the committee the grounds upon which the board claim to be entitled to have the roads asked for by the board made main roads. The appeal of the Rev. Joshua Davies Llanllwni was heard, and the clerk was directed to inform Mr Davies, that inasmuch as the statement he sent in was for the year 1888, he should send another showing the receipts and deductions far last year. The com- mittee also were of opinion that they could not make any allowance for Chureh repairs, unless it could be shown that payments for such repairs have been made, and that the committee consider Y.5 per cent. for the collection expenses a sufficient allowance.
