BURRY PORT. DEATH OF AN OLD INHAB]ITANT. -The death of Mrs Fiancts Edmunds, widow of the late Mr Henry Edmunds, for many yeats dock master at this place, occurred on Sunday morning last. The deceased, who was 88 years of age, was well known in this neighbourhood, and beloved by all. She was a faithful member of the congregation who worship at Jerusalem Chapel, and attended the services held in that place of worship regularly for the last 70 years. She was also the only woman in this place, who, up to her illness, which commenced about six weeks ago, wore the Welsh (sugar-loaf) hat. Her remains were interred at Jerusalem Chapel burying ground on Tuesday, the funeral being a private one The Rev John Rogers (pastor) and the Rev J. H. Rees officiated in the chapel and at the grave. FIRE. 1\ fire broke out in the show-room of the London House last Tuesday evening, which caused a good deal of damage. Some men, who were passing about 9 p.m. noticed the fire, and gave the alarm. A crowd soon gathered, and the work of putting out the fire commenced in earnest. This was accomplished in a very short time, but not before the whole stock of goods was completely spoilt. It appears the tire originated from the falling of a looking glass, which upset a lamp which had been left in the room. We sympathise with the proprietor, Mr T. H. Bowen, in his loss. SERVANTS' BALL. Mr and Mrs Whatman, of Pembrey House, gave their servants' ball on Monday evening, the 19th inst., a goodly number of friends being also invited. Dancing commenced at 9.30, and was kept up until midnight with great spirit, when an adjournment was made to another room, where an excellent spread awaited the guests. After the usual toasts had been gone through, dancing was resumed, and amongst other things, highland flings, Reel Tullock, and sword dance were very cleverly given by Messrs W. Gray and R. Leitch. Selections of stirring Scotch airs, marches, Strathspays and reel were rendered during the night by Pipe Major W. Robb, 97th Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders, Aldershot, assisted by Messrs W. M. Radford (violin) and H. Williams (clarionet). The dancing broke up about 5.30 a.m., each one having enjoyed himself and her- self thoroughly.
