GARTHMYL. RENT AUDIT.—Mrs. Lewis-Andrew's half-yearly rent audit was held at the Nag's Head Hotel cn Thursday. The tenants appeared in large numbers and the receipts were good. Mr William Pritchard, the agent, presided at the dinner, the vice-chairs being filled by Mr Evan Walter and Mr Pritchard, jun. After the usual loyal and patriotic toasts from the chair, Mr Evan Jones, Ucheldre, proposed the health of Mrs Lewis-Andrew. He said that since they last met she had had a serious loss, and he was sure the whole of the tenants condoled with her. She was a lady much respected everywhere -(cheers)-and the amount of work done by her in various causes was deserving of the highest praise. In the parish of Bettws of late she was chiefly instrumental in the building of the new schoolroom. The toast was drunk arnii cheers.— The Chairman next proposed the health of the tenantry, and coupled with it the name of Mr. Lewis, of Cefu.—Mr. Evan Jones, Ucheldre, pro- posed the health of the agent. -Mr. Pritchard, in response, said he knew the times were bad, but he had read in the papers lately that the Government were going to make some concession in the rates, and he thought the tenants would generally benefit; the only danger was that perhaps some landlords might increase the rents, but he was sure that would not be the case on the Pennant estate. Mrs Lewis-Andrew was wishful to do all she could for the welfare of the tenants. Before he sat down he wished to propose the health of one who sat with them for the last time, viz., Mr Harding. Thev were sorry to lose him. He hoped he would prosper wherever he went.—Mr and Mrs E. R. Owen were thanked for their excellent catering. The health of the oldest tenants, Mr David Davies and Mr Williams, and the youngest, Mr Lewis Fletcher, was drunk amid cheers. BISHOP'S CASTLE.
