Evan Jones in the chair, the Rev. Robert Griffiths read a paper on The Originality of Christ.' Mr. Griffiths was heartily thanked for a most excellent paper on the motion of Mr. D. Owen, seconded by Mr. Thomas Jones (Railway station). A runaway horse.-On Thursday morning, a horse attached to a trap belonging to Mr. R. Ellis, butcher, bolted in Beacon's Hill. The frightened animal rushed down the street at a furious pace, and as it was the time when the children were going to Fron Goch Schools, it was next door to a miracle that no one was hurt. The horse was cap- tured before much damage was done. Promotion. We understand that Mr. John Parry, son of Mr. Henry Parry, Ty Crwn, Henllan, and for the last ten or twelve years clerk with Messrs. Parry Jones and Francis, has received an appointment at the offices of Mr. Fielding, Clerk of the Peace, and Town Clerk, Canterbury. Mr. Parry, we understand, will begin on his new duties next Monday. As a proof of Mr. Parry's genial character, and the very high opinion entertained of him, we might men- tion that a testimonial has been got up in Henllan, which is willingly contributed to by all classes, to be presented to him, on the eve of his departure. We feel eure that Mr. Parry will be a credit to both Denbigh and Henllan in the chief town of Kent, I the garden of England.' A house on wheels.-Consid erable interest was manifested on Thursday in the new living vabi made by Mr. William Davies, coachbuilder, to the order of the Denbigh Town Council, and which was on view,' although not quite completed, that day. The van is intended for the men in charge of the Steam Roller, who can live in it when working at a distance from their homes. It is a substantial and convenient 'house,' and reflects credit on its builder and de- signer.
