AUSTRALIAN LETTER. The ftill lotter has boon rvrnvel f.) 'to. Australia bv Mr Sidmond Croker, Porth — Corbett Street, lJallerat, East Victoria, VustrUia, J lm 23, Dear respected Friend,— It affords me great pleasure to inE )!"ill :na th t my son and myself are in the best of hoiUh, in- deed I have good reason to Hunk tho (Troafc Disposer of events when olxierving tho steady- hahitB of the lad with the affeeti in he shiwsin* I the oft repeated words he utters regarding each of us. Well, friends, I sincoreiy ilJp tho same blessing is bestowed on you, br p:»aco of mind anl health are about the greatest mercies that can 00 afforded us in this world. I thought you mighfc like to know something about my movements ia. II this new country. On arriving in Balleirat, and after consulting a few Taffs from the old- Valley, I bought the interest of a Tributor in the I Brittania Quartz Company. This paid me well when in receipt of the current wages, namely £ 2 I to t2 5s per week. When the party w :-re bont oa sinking the shaft (pit) deeper, with a view of pro- specting for eoal at a lower level, 1 sold out and went to work on the White Horse ranges, north- west of Uallaiat. At this place I remained sevgil weeks, missing to fall on anything that would prove remunerative for working. I was not atoue. in the haphazard work of delving for the yellow metal, for around me stood scores of people who spend months and months sinking small shafts und I missing to get the colour of gold. On the other hand a good few made tidy wages. Speaking to tho. lad, Ihis kind of work won't keep us, 1 must try some other way to bring things to answer our pur- poses." As luck favoured us I learned that a party were about trying for a lode on Devil s Point," a rather unseemly looking place on the brow of the once famous "Black Hill." This prove(l.to moL a happy hit through being in the company of pleasant fellows, and what is still better through the stone we rise for crushing gives us some weeks' tidy dividends. I have been engaged in this kind of work more than fifteen months, and I the lode seems to improve in appearance. To ex- plain things more minutely, we pay 6s per ton for crushing, besides Is for carting such to & battery. Now, if any of you friends should visit London during the Indian and Colonial Exhibi- tion which- is now open in Kensington Uardens. they may perceive models of the batteries used in Victoria and Queensland for crushing quartz. A. deal has been said and written of lato on the, loss that occurs in our use of chemical* while endeavouring to extract tho line gold fiom tr e dro-s with whicn jfc i., surrouuded. tfott have a man in Enylan J in the piesert day who has w itten a deal ou thi& vonlt, fr,)-a the expe- lience he obtiiued when manager cf the famous l^nd and Albion .viiue. There are very few men who can frpeak more authoritatively ou the sub- ject. Withal, this mineralogists may disclose certain things to liis views which he had pre- viously overlooked. I bear in mind that the -1 Bal. lara Star puolished a long letter purporting to h -ve been written by Phillip Davies, a coal hewer, from Dinas, near Pontypridd. Of course Phillip David might have see,& a deal of retorting1 while mining manager of the Prin-e of Walea Company, Sebastopol, but for enlarging on the superior metnod tae Yankees adopted to wuat we practice was perfecc bunkum, for what n attempted to explain could easily be gleaned from prospectuses of ventures the cunning Yanttee makes up in order to delude. Indeed, I should' very much like to hear that Sir Huasey Vivian, P., had a little conversation with the said Aus- tralian legislator now in Londou. for I :1.10 led to understand that a number from the western part of Glamorgan are engaged in developing this 11 9 branch of industry in Queensland. By the hubbub risen by Sergeant Davies and others, on the log. of gold sustained by the treatment it receives, should cause the Government to appoint a r umior to seek the best information they possibly could while thus engaged as commissioners to North and South America. Look at the deception carried out, by plotters in enhancing what is falsely termed the mining interest is astonishing by the sham shadow-w drawn of very reliable payable ventures. 'ro see the mob that trade in mining scrip makes me often think of thimble liggers and garter tvickers, who carried on such games in fairs and races. The only difference is, the Exchange man holds before you a map that puports to show wherel "The Leviathan" came in conjunction with ihe. splendid white-horse gutter, or the ofTinworth. lode," dipped right south, that has been duly surveyed by the "Happy.go-lucky Ideatitieg- I imagine if Marcus Clark had been spared, we might ere now have written a very startling farci \X7 ^°^8.anf prey on pigeons in Victoria* Well, friends, I have only to bless my stars that I was not allured to become a corner man," for by fch^ very slight shearing I had in baying a worthless ven- ture I took care none of the rogues would have mora of my harn-earned money. When first I gazed on this piously guised mob, and listened to their bewitching tales, I thought that Divine Providence might perchance have a hand in posting them up for the sake of bringing men of less acuteness to a statts, of affluence. But, good Lord, I soon found that they carried within them very elastic consciences. Now friends, after speaking of the chief industry we have in Ballarat, perhaps it may not be amiss if I dropped a word on the religious unity and good feelin* teat exists betwixt the Welsh in the said town and suburbs. Now most probably I shouldn't have used the noun in the manner I did, for a more disunited people can scarcely exist than the religious Welsh of Ballarat and suburbs. Some of your friends may a J?°W if u i' ^as acclimatization they went through broken that silent chord of tieavenly feeling which is supposed to be characteristic of the. Welsh as a people?" My answer, friends, is simcly this: Religion without some mark of culture become.. a stumbling block to the precepts and example givan. W ,"?e ^a,8ter- Certainly we have but o:m Welsh Chapel in Ballarat, but I feel sorry to relate that the most intelligent of my countrymen had themselves more &t home when mixing with strangers than when acting in union one with the other. In Sebastopol again things are much worse, for tiiev. Welsh Sebastopolians have three chapels, namely., Baptists, Dissenters, and Methodists. I presume tiae male adult members may number 25 altogethel, sw that the speaking and singing comes within the circle of a very few. Of course the Calvinistic Methodist& were the &rst party that opened a place of worship^ in the said borough, and indeed I have reason to believe that they much excel their brethren that are connected with the other two chapels in show- respect, intelligence and uniformity of life..Net long ago the Baptists held their anniversary meetings, which were conducted in Carmel-believing, I opine, the Tabernacle would be too small for the assemblage. Carmelites again iollowed with their annual feast* which was duly recognised in our loeal papers. I. find the Zionites will have their tbankivill day oa the first Sunday in July. Now when any feast day, is kept up by the Baptists the Calvins and Dissenters. close their chapel doors, and the marshalling ia con- ducted by a coal hewer from near Nantgarw. Tiia other two bodies seem to arrange things in the satne>. way. Through running out of paper must now bi. you adieu with wishing you prosperity. I remain, dear friends, Yours truly, JOHN WILLIAMS.

SAGE REMARKS. A bom musician has a great advantage orer on* wbo is not born. If he were fed regularly the aluurk would not be half as ravenous as he is. When a great man dies of hanger, that is a sure indication that lie will soon have a monument. When a man says: What a blawsted kentry -obia it, that is an indication that lie it an English- man. Those whom we have compelled to concede our na- tural advantages are the ones who are beet ac- quainted with our failings. When a sick man refuses to send for a doctor that it a sign that lie still clings to life. The fact that there are two hemispheres goes to demonstrate that the ahat e of the earth ie spherical. In society a woman is admired for her good looks and her talents, but if she wants to make herself eotid with her husband, ahe should see that his attirt-buttons are in their places, that his meals are "pfoperiy cooked, and that he gets them regularly. All knowledge that does not strengthen a man's uprightness of purpose goes to make him a dan- gerous member ef society. The only sensible time to be happy is the present mo went. Most people put it off until week after •te k, and then forget all about it. There is considerable difference between pride vanity. The proud man esteems himsell V017 highly; the vain man brags about himself. WHY SHE WEPT. Twas at a country party One pleasant night in May: The hours were swiftly passing In harmless mirth and play, And every one seemed joyous Save one poor little maid, Who far from all the otliers Her dallying steps had staid. Her eyes were brightest aaure, Her hair like finest silk And in her face the roses h Were mingled with the milk. £ Her cherry lips were trembling, Ii And fuU of deepest pain I. Was her sweet face, as slowly She wiped a tear again. Bad some one dared to slight hei And cause her this distreea r Or had she seen her lover Some other lass caress? My heart was torn with pity, » I hastened to her side, Oh, tell me, beauteous maiden, What is thy grief ? I cried. If Has some one whom thou loved Proved to thee unkind, That on thy face so ll\"y The trape of tears 1 find ? She raised her eyes to scan me, And in a voice most sweet, 01 La, no," she said, and simpered, My new shoes hurt my feet! KEEPING A PLACE. It is vastly easier to get a position than to keep it after it is once secured. "Bragg is a good dog, but Holdfast) is a better," says the old saw. Various circumstances may ob- tain an individual a situation, but only honesty and ability will retain it. An Hibernian, fresh from the Emerald Isle, ap- plied to a Maine farmer for work. Can you drive oxen ? demanded the agricul- tarist. Now, yer honour, that's jist the thing I've done all me life, to be sure." All right (rather dubiously); "hitch the crit- 'ters to the new sled an' go to drawin' wood." Presently Pat appeared pulling his forelock re- spectfully, but evidently in deep trepidation. Sure, yer honour, that little go-cart of yourn it Amasbed into smithereens." Broken I How did sech a thing come to pass ? Sure, your honour, it seemed possessed to run -afout of all the snags an' stoomps in creation." The Maine man tightened his overalls, and with ■A heart full of gloomy forbodings, sought the de- parted sled. There was not much of it left, but sufficient to show that it had been hitched to the oxen hind-side before." W'y, w'y, w'y, what On airth ever made ye hitch -that sled tail eond foremost? Sure, now, is that the kind of sled ye have in *Merikor ? in the owld country the. slantin' part is "the tail o' the contraption." He did not keep his place. FINANCIAL ITEM. Tom Anjerry, a student at the University of Texas, applied to Mose Schaumburg for a temporary .toan, and was told on what terms he could get the money. What! You want three per cent, a month for .the use of money? "I ought ter have four per shent. I vould dake twenty per shent. ven I could get it. Don't you blush to say so? "I sclianges money but I never schanges colour." REBUKED THE INSINUATION "You stand about six feet in your stockings, 1 »eheve ?" said an attorney, cross-examining an Irishman. .c Phawts that? "You stand about six feet in your stockings ? "In me stockings? M Yes." "Av coorse I stand in me stockings I Do yez think I'd be after wearing another man's socks ?

PONTYPRIDD ANNUAL LICENSING SESSION. The adjourned licensing session for the Ponty. pridd Petty Sessional Division took place on Wed- nesday, whton there were on the bench, the Rev. D. W. Williams, Messrs. W. Jones, B. Lewis, Evan John, J. Davies, T. Williams, E. Thomas, Dr. Morgan, L. G. Lennox, and C. Bassett. The renewal of licences to persons against whom convictions had been recorded was prcoeeded with, the license holders being called forward, and in seme oases spokes to by the magistrates. In the ease of the lioense of Mr W. Morns, of the New Inn, Superintendent Matthews explained that tke oonvictiorl was for opening on the day of election. There had been no conviction besides that.—The license was accordingly re- newad. Mr John James, of Pentre, applied for a lioense for the Gelli Hotel, Ton, Mr H. LI. Grover ap- pearing for him to make the application. The Rev. D. W. Williams who was in the chair remarked that before they commenced the consideration of applications for new lioenses he would like to make a few remarks. He regretted very much that the learned stipendiary was not amongst them that day, and he (the speaker) did all he could to prevail on that gentleman to atay hete for to-day, or to return from his holidays so as to be there on that day. Unfortunately that gentleman preferred, he svpposed, being in North Wales and leaving them do the work for him. He regretted it the more because he was the senior magistrate on that bench, and he thought, the only one who was a member of the licensing committee at Neath. Whatever was done there was very likely to be un- done by the licensing oommittee a* Neath, and ha noticed that the very first case that eame on that day was one which that committee had refnsed to xrant last year, although the magistrates at Pontypridd, had, he thought, unanimously granted it. tie intended, therefore, not to interfere in the licensing; he would merely listen because it was more than probable his vote would be vetoed at Neath and rather than that he declined altogether to interfere in the licensing that day. He trusted they would see what he meant and appreciate his position in declining to take part in the licensing. —The business was then proceeded with.—Mr Grover then proceeded to make the application on behalf of Mr John James for the Ystrad Hotel, Gelli, and explained that the heuse was situate at Gelli. He entered into details as to the population in the neighbourhood, and said that the nearest house was the King's Head on the Rhondda Road, which, as the crow new, was not far, but which was a good distance by the road. Last year, he said, the application was opposed infinentially, but he was glad to find that this year the opposi- tion had been withdrawn. He had a petition signed by 1.566 persons in favour of its being granted.- Mr W. R. Davies, solicitor, said that there were several gentlemen present who were anxious to present petitions to the magistrates.—Mr W. H. Morgan. I trust that your Worships will receive no petitions. In Neath they distinctly say they will have none at all.—The Magistrates' Clerk: What we have done here hitherto is to receive the petitions without any remarks.—Mr Grover pro- ceeded to put in plans, &c., when Mr Ebenezer Lewis (* magistrate) interrupted, saying, "We won't trouble you, Mr Grover; we are unanimous in granting this as we did last year." The hevs W. J. Morris, J. Pugh, and W. Lewis handed in petitions from inhabitants of Pontypridd against granting new licenses generally, and calling attention to the flagrant violatioDS of the Sunday Ololling Act in the town, and also from residents of Ooedpenmaen against the application for a license for a new betel at Cilfynydd. Mr W. H. Morgan again applied for a license for the Albion Hotel, Cilfynydd, on behalf of Mr W. Lewie. Mr J. Jones, Cardiff, opposed for Mrs Jenkins, Cilfynydd Inn, and Mr W. R. Davies for the inhabitants of the neighbourhood.—Mr Morgan, in opening, said the house was within two miles of the town of Pontypridd, and was a commodious structure costing abcut £ 3,000, intended for the people of the new town springing up near the Albion Colliery, and for the accommodation of the "fficials of the company and for commercial gentle- men who visited the p!ace. He produced plans and tigures showing the present position and probable increase in the neighbourhood and ridiculed the nutiou of the Cilfynydd Inn ing sufficient accom- modation. As to the opposition of the inhabitants as represented by Mr W. R. Davies he submitted that was opposition really on behalf oJ the temper. unce party. He didn't object to that out opposition WHS not to that license particularly but to lioenses g,one,ally. He had great regard fur the temperance gentlemen, and he did not object to their coming there to state their views, but he wished to point out that an hotel provided more convenience than simply drinking accommodation. It was meant as a plaoe of rest and shelter,- and to supply food and drink or food with ut drink to persons who called iu, together with sleeping accommodation for men •iud ijtubliug accommodation for borsps. He wished to point out thit as a matter of fact: the temper- ance party there that day were Ponty priud people, and really Cilfynydd was not in their district. In .proof-of that he remarked that if they constituted themselves the guardians of the morals of the people of the neighbonrhood they might have been expected to provide worshipping accdmmodation there, but as a matter of fact nothing of the kind had been done. He did not btame them for that rpully because it was outside their district and therefore they had no tocus standi whatever. He pointed out that building a large hotel meant great outlay, and that a mau who had a large stake in the place was far less likely to violate the licensing l-»w thanth proprietor of a small public bouse.— Witnesses were called to prove the plans nnd the acitessity for the bouse, and those witnesses were cross-examined by Mr Jones and Mr Davies.—Mr Jones said his friend MrMprgau had tried to throw dust in their eyes. He had spoken of 5,000 people as likely to gather there, but from evidence it .appeared there were only about 150 poisons there now. Tho representation made with regard to the uxifiting inn by Air Morgan was unfair. Air Morgan said they were drinking rooms, but so were the rooms in all licensed houses.-Williani Jenkins, landlord of the Cilfynydd Inn, said there were five rooms and a bar on the ground floor. Of these two are private sitting rooms. He bad iiix bed. rooms, two stables, and1 two coach-houses. Over £1,000 had been spent on the house during the last 18 months. There were 15 houses before he went there, and now there are 23 occupied. His house had been licensed 25 years.—Mr W. R. Davies said the applioant being conueo;ej with the colliery a pressure might be put on the men to use his house. He maintained the existing inn provided ample accommodation. M" Grover applied fora lioense fora house erected by Mr Thomas Taylor, contractor, at Coedpenmaen. He put in plans and a photograph of the house. As regarded the district it had sprung into a small town. At present immediately around the house there were 12j houses, and 86 wer", nearer to the new house than any other. The nearest lioensed house was the Newbridge Arms, which was a small honse. It was built on Mr Bassett's estate, and the fact that he had granted the site for its erection was a sufficient proof that he considered it neces- b^TTo IS?'or 8a"* oost house was about ±.d,000.—Mr W. R. Davies opposed the application on behalf of inhabitants of the dis- trict. Mr Grover applied for a license back to the Miners' Arms, near Llantriaant. The house was formerly licensed, but through Mr GUve's absence the license fell through. There was no opposi- tion. Ms. Rosser applied fcr a removal of the license from the old house that had been converted into cottages at Cwm Clydaoh. A new house had been built. The reason was that the read had been altered. The magistrates retired to consider the appHca- tions, and on their return Mr Ebenezer Lewis stated that they had granted the applications of Thomas Llewellyn Evans, Clydach Vale; John James, Ton; and Mr Lewis, Albion Hotel. Thomas Taylor's application was granted after considerable discus- sion and division, and the Carpentera* Anna, after considerable discussion and division, was also allowed a license. John Morgan's application wag withdrawn, and the application fpr a lieense for the <inere' Arm was refund., k 1\> e', "( .ulJ.¡,bIlf Vili

TRESPASS ON THE RAILWAY AT ABERDARE. STRANGE PREAKB. At the Aberdare police-eonrt on Tuesday-before Mr. North, Mr. Rhys, Mr. D. E. Williams, and Mr. D. P.- Davies--David Jones, a young man, was charged with trespassing on the Great Western Railway at Dare Valley in such a manner as to expose himself to danger. Mr. Gustard appeared for the prosecution. It seemed that workmen were in the habit of jumping on mineral trains whilst in motion, and on the day named Inspector Morgan saw defendant, when a train was going at the rate of 15 miles an hour, jump off at the imminent peril ef bis life. He was fined 80s. and costs, or in default one month's imprisonment with hard labour. John Owen was charged with trespassing on the Great Western Railway at Cwmbach, on July 10th. Mr, Morris, permanent way inspector, found defend- ant, an athlete, using the six-foot" way as a "train- ing ground," ,being nearly naked. Fined 10s. and costs; in default three weeks' imprisonment.
FOOTBALL The Pontypridd Club had their first practice on Saturday last when the first thirteen were opposed by the next eighteen.

On Saturday next there will be a scratch- match of the first fifteen versus the next eighteen. Kick-off at 4 o'clock sharp. TRBHERBERT V. PENYGRAIG.

They are being worked by a Mr Stokes, and it is to be hoped the undertaking will tarn ont successful.
DETERMINED SUICIDE AT CARDIFF. Between eight and nine o'clock on Sunday morning a man named Thomas Steele, a gardener in the employ of Dr. Taylor. was found by a groom, also in the employ of that gentleman, hanging to the balustrade of an empty house in Crockherbtown. Information was ationce given to the police, and the body was subsequently cut down and conveyed to the dead-house by Police- Constable Matthews. The deoeased was last seen alive at 12.55 p.m. on the 18th icst., when he appeared to be in his usual mind, and no cause can be assigned for his rash act..
FIRE AT LLAN( AlACH. On Wednesday a fire broke out in a barn at Penyrheol Farm, on the mountain between Nelson and Caerphilly, jnst abive Ystiadmynauh. The barn contained a large quantity of hay and some oak timber, and the Are soon obtained such a hold on the structure that it was plainly useless to attempt to do more then to prevent it extending to two cottages under the same roof, and to a cowshed at the rear. This was done. The furniture of a man named Richards, who lived next to the barn, was thrown out on to the mountain and greatly damaged, and he and his wife and children had to shelter in a house at a distance. The hay and timber in the barn were the property of Mr Lewis, farmer, Tredomin Farm, Ystradmynach, and the barn itself belonged to the late Mrs Thomas, Ystrad house, Ystradmynach.

THE EFFECTS ARE PERMANENT. A W.'KDERFUL STATEMENT, SHOWING THAI1 TliU BENEFICIAL EFFECTS .L OF "WAITER'S SAFE CURE" ARE NOT TEMPORARY, BUT PERMANENT. THE objection IS often made that the beneficial clTectsof pi'oyrietai'y mudiciims me only temporary. and that the disease returiia as soon as the use of the medicine is discon- tinued. To nice, this oiijVction in tlie casepf "Warner's Sat'p Cure," we give heiow a smtclf o,;e of the thousands of cwiilirined testimonials in our possession, showing per- manency of effect several years aiter the cure was wrought. ;I'1". J. Hiscock. station-master of Tali Vale Railway il ir)n. Wales, writing under date of JULY 31,1882, says. Having for years suffered from kidney trouble, which t'ndedin abscess of that organ, resulting from inflammation. \Ii: a copious flow of pus, I purchased about 15 bottles of .Warner's Safe Cure,' the contents of IS only of which i imve taken. It brought away about tico oitncm stoite; the pus lias ceased to appear, the pain has vanished, the water is now clear, and I believe it has effected a complete cure. I have long and fairly tried some of the ablest medical men in South Wales, but they faiied to treat the case success- fully, one of them remarking that medical science had failed to find a remedyfor confirmed kidney disease." Writing under date of APRIL 27,1886, this gentleman says: It is now iieitrly foit, !le,, r- si,lee I discontinued the use of Warner's Safe Cure,' nnd I have had no relapse of kidney trouble, have seen neither stone, gravel, or pus during that period, no return of the bad, heavy pain in the region of the kidneys which troubled me for years before I began the use of Warner's Safe Cure.' In my case the cure has been thorough and permanent, and I doubt not it will be in others similarly aFlicteli, if a fair trial is accorded it. jtt -1 Yours faithfully, "Station Master Naviimtion.

FAREWELL MEETING.-On Tuesday evening the English Congregational friends met together at the North-street Chapel, to bid farewell to their Pastor, the Rev. J. Owen Jones, who having accepted the pastorate of the Congregational Church M almes- bury, Wilts, was leaving the town the following morning After reading and prayer by the Rev. T. Anthony, Tongwynlais, a public meeting was held under the piesid 3ncy of the Rev. W. T. Morris, Pontypridd, which was addressed by the following get-tlemen: -Revs. T. Jones, Llwynpia; D. L. Evans, Pontypridd; J. V. Stephens, Beau. fort; J. Henry, Mardy; O. H. Hughes, Tylorstown; Messrs. Meredith, Lloyd, Tibbat, Phillips, Kingsey, Instance and Mackintosh. Presentations were also made on behalf of the Church and congregation by the Misses Harris and Jones, consisting of a very handsome black marble timepiece to Mr. Jones, a tea service to Mrs. Jones, and an illuminated album to the baby. The rev. gentleman acknowledged the presentations on behalf of himself, wife, and child in a very able and exceedingly pathetic speech, which deeply moved the feelings of all present. It would be impossible to reproduce in print the many excellent things that were said in praise of Mr. Jones, or to convey to the public an impression of the beautiful spirit that pervaded the speeches from beginning to end. But this we can say, one and all agreed that Mr. Jones, during his stay at Ferndale, had proved-himself a most faithful as well as able minister of the gospel, and that his leaving was f source of deep regret to the Church and neighbour- hood. Some 31 years ago, it was said, he .found the Church at North-street in a deplorable state, with only 25 members, small congregations, and a very heavy debt, but now they had nearly 100 members, large congregations and the debt considerably de- creased. Special testimony, too, was borne by two young friends, Messrs. Bridge and Macintosh, to Mr. Jones's great influence with the young, and as an evidence of this it was stated that no less than fonr young men had already decided on going out into the mission field. This exceedingly interesting meeting ended with a very hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Morris for presiding.
