THE FALL OF HERAT. STARTLING INCIDENTS. -The Times correspondent telegraphing from Quetta, .October 23, says:—Tho Ameer has written to Colonel St John, informing him offic'ally of the occupation of Herat by his troops on the 4th inst., after a third and bloody battle fought at Shaflan, 30 milt-B east of the city, on the 2nd. Accounts of the battle have also reached Quetta from other sources. After defeating the Luinab at some place not mentioned, but, pr pably, not far east of Obeh, Abdul Kudur Khan, who, it now appears had with him a regiment of infantry and some guns, was joined by the Ghilzai colony at that place, and by several minor chiefs who had hitherto remained neutral or adhered to Ayoub's party. Tbas reinforced, he moved towards the city; but one march distant from Obeh he found his passage barred by a force from Herat, com- manded by General Abdur Bahman Khan, and composed of two and a half battalions of infantry, presum*?r.*j "lie same who were defeated under Luinab, -11141 cne heavy and four mountain guns. The negti MMaing the battle took place, and, after an obstinate struggle, the heavy gun caused rush havoc among the Cab'il force that it began to f .11 back in confusion, and all would have been lust, -liai nisi Abdul Kudus, at the head of a few bont;, oword in hand, and captured the gvrs.

PONTYPRIDD. SCHOOL HONOURS.—We are very glad to see that the Pontypridd Grammar School, of which Mr M'Clune is head-master, has done so well in the following examination. At the Preliminary Examination held by the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain on 4th inst, two hundred and seventy candidates presented themselves for exami- nation, of whom ninety four passed. From the Pontypridd Grammar School, Messrs J. H. Rees, J. E. Lloyd and J. Davies were examined all of whom were successful. THE QUARTERLY FAIRS.—The above fair was held here on Wednesday, and was a. decided success. The town seemed to be turned into a fair altogether, the supply of horses and cattle being beyond the most sanguine expectations. Not only was the supply great, but the demand was also considera- ble, and we noticed one of the greatest dealers of South Wales among the purchasers, namely, Mr Elias Jones. The business walt- chiefly done during the early part of the day. In the afternoon, a number of horses and cattle were sold by public auction by Mr John Thomas in the Cattle Market, and in the Butchers' Arms Yard by Messrs Crockett and James. Good prices were realized. SERIOUS CARRIAGE ACCIDENT.—On Thursday an alarming accident occurred at Trallwn, Pontypridd, to a horse and carriage, the property of Mr Stream, contractor. A youth was in the carriage, and when descending the road from the Cardiff highway, the horse took fright, and bolted down the road at full speed. The animal managed to pass the sharp angle leading to the canal bridge, and he went at a terrific pace through Trallwn. He was unable to turn the next angle, where the new road branches from the old road leadiug to the ford. Here the animal came into violent contact with the wall. The horse was thrown back against the carriage, sustaining dreadful 'njuries to the chest and forelegs. The youth, who had managed to remain in the cart through it all, < scaped with only a severe shaking. THE PROGRESSIVE LWESIMENT ASSOCIATION, (LIMITED.)—On Tuesday evening a lecture was delivered at the Graig School-room, by B. Shakespeare, Esq., managing director of the above company, on Capital and Savings, where, and how to invest them." The Chair was occupied by D Leyshon, Esq. After a few remarks the chair- man called the lecturer to explain the principles and operations of the Progressive Investment Assoeiation, (Limited.) In doing this the lecturer stated that they did not come here in opposition to any existing Provident Society, believing there was room for all amongst the many societies con- sisting of the investing public. The main question should be which was the most deserving of support where they could invest their savings most securely and to the greatest advantage. The lecturer observed that the P. I. A. (limited) wan ed to be known and only to be known to secure the co. fi- dence of the people. He believed the Society he represented, presented advantages to investors, and those who are anxious to acquire property which no ordinary Building Society could offer Whilst his Society had some things in common with other Societies, it had many features distinct from ail of them. First be impressed upon them the fact that they were a Company, and not based upon the mutual principle as most Building Societies were. People some times say tho y prefer investing in Societies near home, under local management. He thought that in too many cases the results of local management had come lather too close home to many in South Waies. Lan- cashire and other places were through the blun- dering or som thing worse of such directors the poor investors had nearly lost their all. Such being painful illustrations of the risk attending invest- ments in mutual associations. In companies like the t". 1. A. (limited) the iuvestors are protected by a share capital, the whole risk and responsibility resting upon shareholders. The lecturer next explained the different features of the company s business and various wodes in which parties may invest with them, as for instance the Share depait- ment which was likely to become a very lucrative mode of investment they had already phid 6 per cent., and in a few years hope to yield aouble that amount. They also have a deposit branch similar to a bank, only instead of paying 21 .per cent they pay 4 per cent for the first year, and. 5 per cent on deposits' continued 'fbr longer periods. He next gave a descry t'on of their certificate fum.8 a mode of investing similar to a builoing society. The monthly subscriptions to this iund are 2s 6d and 5s, payable tor 15 years at the option ot the holder, as they can be withdrawn at short nutice if desired. The advantage of this fund is that each certificate of 58 will secure the holder b) ballot an advance of £100 without interest for 121 yeais. He distinctly stated that members in this fund who were anxious to secure property need not wait until they are drawn, but could obtain ad- vances at any time at interest, on application and he observed that it was unwise and uuvrotitablt; to wait for the ballot, as by doeng SJ they w..ula be paying rents for their houses to landlords wh.ch ought to go to pay for their own houses. Mr Shakespeare next pointed out that the P. 1. A. (limited) did not conti e tbeii advauc s to one class of property, su( h as house property, as that was not always the most piohtable mode of investment. I he lectui er plainly showed that there are scores of ways more profitable and easy of making money than by house pioperty. The lecture was listened to with great attention, and closed with the usual vote of tnanks to the chairman. It will be seen from the public notices that lectures will be given in the course ot the week at Treorky and Pt-ntre, and by reference to our advertising columns thai ageflcy are already established in this town and the hhondda Valley.

ST. DAVID'S CHURCH BAZAAR, PONTYPRIDD. The bazaar in aid of the funds of St. David's Presbyterian Church, was opemd on Thursday, and was continued on Friday. The Market-hall had been splendidly decorated by willing hands, under the supei vision of Sergeant Busby, of Tredegar. 1 o hide the roof of the Market-hall, a ceiling made of chains of coloured paper had been fixed. There was a telephone communication from one end to to the other of the hall. The stal s contained articles of all kinds, and were in the following order: 1st, Mrs Drlaney, and Miss Jones. 2nd, Mrs. Ross, and Mrs. Lougher. 3rd, Alib-s Rosser, Miss Spickett, and Miss Merchant. 4th, a scent stall in the centre of the hall, Miss Gwen Rosser. 5th, a farm produce stall. This wab got up similar to a country farm-house, with a thatched roof, and contained a choice selection of poultry, butter, cheese, and a quarter of a sheep, bred and fed on the Uelliwyon Farm. This was kept by •MISS Davies, Gelliwyon Mrs John, (Union), Pontypridd; Miss Davies, (Union); Mrs Morris, Glyncoch Miss Powell, Graig School. ihe refreshment stall, which was the most nicely got up we ever saw, contained almost everything in the way of refreshment, except intoxicants, was kept by Mrs Murgaus, confectioner; Mrs Williams Miss Morgans and M:ss John, irallwn. '1 he turn table kept by Mr Fred Cooke, and the •' Wild beast show." by Mr Griffith Griffiths, outside of which a hand organ, or what is vulgarly called, hurdy guidy (minus a leg. to make up for which a lew lads are put to carry it) is being played by Air D. U. Davies Mill-street. ihe^azaar was enlivened by the presence of a band which comprised a violin, pianoforte, cornet, picolo, and vioiincello, and were played by Mr Walter Williams (violin), Mr Mc>»urray (piano), Mr Wm. Crockett Ipicolo), Master Leonard Wil- liams (vioiincello). The proceedings commenced by Mr Rosser singing God toave the Queen," ably accompanied by the baud. Air Rosser then called upon Mr Gwilym Williams tv open the bazaar. Mr GWILYM WILLIAMS then ascended the plat- form, and, addressing the ladies and gentlemen pr sent, said that it was a great pleasure for him to be there to perform the ceremony of opening the bazaar. It was a duty which was also necessary to be done by someone to declare the proceedings of to-day legal, (daughter.) Be sincerely hoped that it would be a success He being himself an old son of Methodise he telt with them, and was unchanged and unchangeable. Unlike some people. he rllther approved ot bazaars, although some high ecclesiastics had said that bazaars were not right, but he would not take upon himself to state that it was not rig"t. If there were young ladies there who would make a little bargain for themselves. they were not to be blamed, for, of course, all of those that were there who had not perpetreted that bargain, were most anxious to do so. The causi- for which the bazaar is held ia good, and he conid S\ m. athize with them, it was the glory of Wales. People that visit Wales always spoke of the number of places of worship which were there; and they were elected by that class of people which were not usually veiy rich-the working classes. After a few more remarks, he said that now he declared that the law would be suspended and permission oiven to the stall holders to pillage the British public. (Laughter). And he would also remind the B.P., an abbreviation for British public, that it would be no good for them to go and try to obtain legal redress for their wrongs during these two days. (Applause). He wished to say another ti ing. He would hope that the Church of England friends would respond to this movement as heartily as the dissenters had done when they (the Church) had held their bazaar. (Here, here,) He then declared the bazaar opened. No sooner had Mr Gwilym Williams descended the platform than business was commenced in real earnest, and several costly and fancy articles were disposed of in a few minutes by the stall holders and in raffles. The hall was well attended duiing the whole of the afteinoon, and bids Lir to be a grand success.

Prisoner, who was prosecuted by Mr Howen Rowlands, now pleaded that he had no felonious intent, and that he meant to redeem the watoh. The Chairman having summed up, the foreman of the jury asked to retire. The Chairman wanted to know what the difficulty was. The Foreman said that one of the jury had stated that he could not find the prisoner guilty. (Laughter). The Chairman asked this gentleman to stand up, and gave him a special exposition of the law, but he still said ho would rather retire. After an absence of a few minutes the jury returned with a verdict of guilty, and the Chairman deferred sentence.

A month or two afterwards he came baok to Cardiff, and did not make any attempt to conceal himself.—Mr Bees, a clerk in the employ of the prosecutors, said they wished to recommend the prisoner to the lenient consideration of the court, because previous to this offence his character was good, and he had a widowed mother who was partially dependent upon him, and also because be had been punished already.

About half-past seven o'clock at night he saw two men in their working clothes in the yard. He went towards them, and they let two lumps of coal fall down and ran away. He followed them a little, and met Henry Toze outside the yard. Witness asked him if he hud seen two nr-n running. T"ze said he did, but that ho did not know who they were. Witness then went on, but seeing that he could not catch them, he returned to the yard, and laid down in the ditch to see if they would come back. About nine o'clock he oouid see someone coming over the bridge towards the yard, he laid down quietly, and the prisoners came nearer. Reenter cried out, "it's all right," aid they mime & V within four yards of the constable, and picked up two lumps of coal, and went back. Witness followed them. Prisoners threw the coal over the garden wall^of a house close by. He oaught them in the act. Upon weighing the coal he found it to be 1241bs.-Rossitor was a contractor in the Fernhill Colliery, and had been working there for ten years. The other prisoner had been working there for over five years.—The Stipendiary re- marked that it was a very bad case, the prisoners bore a good character, and if there was the least doubt, he should like to give them the benefit of it, but there was no doubt whatever about it, and what made the case worse was that they were not stealing it for themselves. There was a receiver. The persons who lived in the house belonging to the garden, and the prisoners, understood each other, therefore it was not a case where a fine could be inflicted, he would send them to gaol for 14 days each with hard labour.

CRISIS IN IRELAND. THE LAND LEAGUE PROCLAIMED. In the Dublin Grazette of Thursday, the 20th inst., appeared the foliowing proclamntion of the Lord Lieu- tenant Whereas, an association styling itself The Irish National Land League" has existed for some time past, assuming to interfere with the Qu, en's subjects in the free exercise of their lawful rights, and especially to control the relatione of landlord and tenant in Ireland and whereas the designs of the said association have been sought to be effected by an organised system of intimidation, attempting to obstruct the service of process and execution of the Queen's writs, and seek- ing to deter the Queen's subjects from fulfilling their contracts and following their lawful callings and occu- pations and whereas the said association has now avowed its purpose to be to prevent the payment of all rent and to effect the fubversion of the Jaw as ad- ministered in the Queen's name in Ireland, Now we hereby warn all persons that the said association styling itf elf The Irish National Land League," or by whatsoever other name it may be called or known, is an unlawful and criminal association, and that all meetings and assemblies to carry (ut or promote its designs or purposes are alike unlawful and criminal, and will be prevented, and, if necessary, dispersed by force. We hereby warn all subjects of her Majesty the Queen, who may have been connected with the said association, to disconnect themselves therefrom, and abstain from giving further countenance thereto. And we do hereby make known that all the powers and resources at our command will be employed to protect the Queen's sub- jects in Ireland in tbe free exercise of their lawful rights and the peaceful pursuit of their lawful callings, and occupations, to enforce the fulfilment of all lawful obligations, and to save pro- cess of the law and the execution of the Queen's writs from hindrance or obstruction and we do hereby call on all loyal and well-affected subjects of the Crown to aid us in upholding and maintaining the authority of the law and the supremacy of the Queen in this her realm of Ireland. Dated Dublin Castle this 20th day of October, 1881, by his Excellency's command, W. E. FORSTER. fhe following advertisement appeared in the Free- man's Journal on the following day "Land League Proclamation.—The action of the Government for the past week, culminating this evening in a proclamation which practically announces their determination to resort to armed force in order to prevent Irish people exercising their constitutional right of public meetings, makes it the duty of the Central Land League to call upon the people, whilst remaining firm and unbroken in their attitude of passive resistance, to abandon for the present all projected public meetings in connec- tion with the League which could be taken advantage of by the authorities to carry out their designs." In the course of the day following that on which the above proclamation appeared, the furniture,books, and effects of the Land League were removed from the head offices in Upper Sackville-street, and at night the offices were finally closed. MANIFESTO BY THE LAND LEAGUE. The decision of the Land League, referred to in the Lord Lieutenant's proclamation, to advise the tenants to pay no rent, was announced at its weekly meeting held in Dublin on Tuesday, the 18th inst., when a mani- festo addressed to the Irish people, and signed by Mr. Parnell, Mr. Dillon, and other imprisoned leaders, was adopted. It states that the crisis has been de- liberately forced upon the country whilst the Land Act was yet untested, in order to strike down the only pnwer which might have have extorted any solid benefits from that statute for the Irish tenant- farmers, and accuses the Government of plunging into a reign of terror in order to force the Act down the throats of Irish tenants. Tts leaders and principal officials being now in prison, the Executive of the Land League de- clares that it is forced to abandon its policy of testing the Land Act, and it advises the tenant-farmers of Ireland henceforth to pay no rents under any circum- stances to their landlords "until the Government re- linquishes the existing system of terrorism, and re- stores the Constitutional rights of-the people." Copies of this manifesto were sent to each of the 2,000 branches of the League, with a circular directing that a meeting of each branch should be called and the manifesto read thereat. Also a large placard was directed to be prominently and numerously posted, bearing simply the words, "No Rent. By order of the Executive," followed by the signatures which were attached to the manifesto. ARCHBISHOP CROKE ON THE MANIFESTO. Archbishop Croke, of Cashel, in a letter to the Freeman's Journal says "I have just read with the utmost pain and, indeed, with absolute dis- may the manifesto issued by the leading incar- cerated patriots of Kilmainham Ga.o)., and publicly proclaimed to the country at large on their behalf from the Land League Rooms in Sackville street. Against the committal of the people of this country, even unt'er still more exciting and critical cir- cumstances than the present, to the doctrine of the nonpayment of rent, though but for a certain specified time, I must and hereby do enter my solmen pr te<tt. I have invariably, both in my published utterances and in private discourse in Ire-, land and out of it, unequivocally stated that I stood out for fair rents, and for nothing more^ for the safe foothold of our agricultural classes upon Irish soil, there to be wholesomely fed, fairly clothed, and suitably lodged and that the absolute repudi- ation of rent, should it ever find public expression in Ireland, would meet with no sympathy from me.. I hold to the original platform of the Irish National Land League. It was a sound -policy it, was a statesmanlike policy; it was a sufficiently, elastic policy it was a righteous policy; it was a successful policy. It pains me, then, sorely to think that any attempt should,now be made to displace the old lines, especially by tHe very men by whom they were so judiciously laid down. Any-" how, I thoroughly believe in the policy of the past in all its substantial branches, and I quite as firmly believe that the policy now so impetuously -Tecom<o-' mended to the country instead, besides being con- demned on the ground of principle and expediency, can lead to nothing but disintegration and defeat." Dr. Croke's repudiation of. the No rent mani- festo haa been followed hy important action on the Eart of the Roman Catholic clergy of KiLlare and leigblin, who recommend the tenants to offer a fair rent, and on refusal to apply to the Land Court. Should the rents fixed by the Land Court be notably higher, they advise the rejection of the Land Act aa useless, and then urge a contest with landlordism on the original lines of the Land League. A REPLY TO DR. QROKE. Mr. Egan has written the following reply to the letter of Archbishop Croke respecting the Land League manifesto: "The il ist Rev. Dr. Croke, of whom I peak with the highest respect, in his "letter published ye-terday falls into two grave errors. Firstly, his lordship conveys that the original platform 01 the Land League proposed to fix fair rents, while on the contrary it proposed to aholish rents, and get rid of the landlord system. Secondly, his lordship asserts that there is no more reason now to strike agait st untfl than when Davitt, Dillon, and others. were jkrr-sted surely there is no comparison between the situations. The Government has now thrown aside all pretences, appealed to brute force, trampled upon all law, and suppressed all forms of constitu- tional expression. Does his lordship mean to. advise the people' to surrender at disfire't o'nf to' tamely submit their necks to the yoke of -their taskmasters to pay rer.t to the real gaolers of their countrymen, whom they have virtually conquered in fact, to resuscitate the corpse of landlordism ? Surely his lordship cannot be serious? His lord^-Kip frankly and fairly admits that he speaks as an'outside'r, never having been a member of the Land League." The Exe-* cutive of the League have long and carefully consi- dered the advisability of a strike against' reUs, "and believes such a course only a wise and courageous one to m&ft the present emergency. They rest confident that it will commend itself to the sound "judgment and tiue patriotism of their country men, as a weapon. I of defence and aggression which must secure a sure and speedy triumph fort heir- cause. is1 no t;me for controveisy. The crisis is forced upon us. We nru^t meet it not by be mpromise, but lilfe' courageous ami determined men, remembering that the watch- word of our-mon, ment is Down with landlordism.
