T. Evans pre- sided. MERCHED-Y-DE.—Tho weekly meeting was held at Elizabeth-street Schoolroom, the president (Mrs. T. Bowen) in the chair. The feature of the evening was a paper by Madame Kate Morgan-Llewellyn, on '*Sankey's" which was admirably written and well read. ACCIDENT.—An accident happened in High- street, about 10 o'clock on Wednesday morning, to a highly-respected townsman, Mr. Gabriel Freedman. He was standing in the road, opposite the Bristol House, and had motioned I the car to stop, when he was knocked down by a, cart belonging to Mr. A. Sweot, butcher, and driven by his daughter, a young girl of 16. Mr. Freedman was unconscious for a long time, and Dr. Cresswell was fetched. He was con- veyed to the Bristol House and attended to, and then taken home, everything being done that was possible. The old gentleman was severely bruised, but luckily no bones were broken. "0 NNA BYDDAI'N HAF RYWBRYD" was suggested as the title of a well-known Welsh I ballad, a sentiment all will join in. When we were in school we used to sing Spring is coming, Spring is coming; Hark, the little bees are humming I but not just yet—at all events, in Dowlais. Nevertheless, if you come to High-street, if bees are not humming there are numerous signs of an early spring in the windows of Messrs. J. S. Davies & Co., The big window is full of the most chaste and beautiful blouses ever seen; the small window has the finest show of flowers you ever clapped eyes on while the crescent window has quite an exhibition of millinery and mantles. If you want to sec further evidences of spring, go inside. LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY.—The fortnightly meeting, held on Friday evening last, was. in point of interest, one of the most successful held this session, despite a somewhat sparse attendance. The subject for debate was Should corporal punishment be abolished in our schools ?" Mr. Charles Williams, (L. & X.W.Pv.) led off in the affirmative, and Mr. G. Brown (Central Schools) negatived the question. Mr. Williams delivered a breezy speech, interspersed with many droll sayings, and related incidents which occurred in his own schooldays. On the other hand, Mr. Brown proved to be a fine debater, and he made a good case for the retention of the birch." In the discussion which followed several new speakers took part, and not a few ladies proved themselves adepts in debate. On putting the question to the vote a slight majority was given for the affirmative side.
