BHOSLLANERCHRUGOG. RHOS IRON CHUKCH.—This church is now com- pleted and will be opened for divine service on the 27th inst. ACCIDENT AT HAPODYBWCH COLLIHP.Y.—Tbe pits of this colliery were not wMkirg on Menday. In the I morning there were men eng-iged on the boileis repairing tho joints of the steam pipes; having done so, the steam was turned upon the engines. Before the trade became so depressed there was a man in charge of each engine at all times, but for the last three or four months there has been only ono man in charge when the pita are not working. He was engaged on Monday in the engine house, Pit No. 2. The carrieis of pit No. 1 were in the middle cf the pit as is usnal when it doiS not work. When the steam was turned on. throagh some cause the machinery was set in motion. One carrier went down violently and was damaged, the other went up to the top gearing (which is very s trong) with a similar force. The forgings of the carrier broke, and as it fell into the pit it damaged considerably the other rope, which was recently put up at the cost of about £300, the carrier itself being smavhed to pieces, and the rope to which it was attached went over the "drill," which caused a portion of the engine-house roof to be shattered about. Luckily no oae was even bur'. It is believed the pit will be ready to work to-day. FETB IN THE PARK.—The annual tea party, in aid of the Rhos National Schools, took place in Llanerchrugog Park, on Monday last. The weather, though dull and cloudy in the morning, cleared up before noon, and was during the whole of the after- noon all that co'ild be desired. This day is looked npon in the district aa the red letter day of the year, many coming from their situations in far off places to be present on the occasion. We are happy to say that this year's fete was as largely, patronised as its predecessors. The Denbigh and Merioneth Militia band had been engaged and enlivened during the afternoon the numerous visitors with choice selections of Mueie. Many were the couples who tripped it. on the green, though other games and pastimes WERE indeed in. Tea was provided under the shadt8 of the leafy elm tree" near the hall. Everything passed off most harmoniously, and we believe that a greater number than ever availed themselves of the op- portunity of being present. We congratulate the vicar on the success which always seems to attend his efforts, and we hope the balance to be handed over to the Rhos National Schools will be more than usual. Amongst those present we noticed the Rev and Mrs Jones and family. Vicarage; Rev D. Williams, Penycae; Mr and Misø Jones, Ty- newydd, Ruabon; E. T. Fitch, Esq., and family, Gardden Hall; Mr and Misses Hmghee and Miss Rioharda, Fenuant; Mies Evans aad. friends, Bron- wylfa; Misses Turner, Gardden Lodge; Misses Forshaw, Fir Tree Cottage; Mrs Jonea and family, Llanerchrugog Hall; Mr and Mrs Baker, the schools Mr Magic, &c., &e.
