DEPARTURE OF THE LLANFAIR VOLUNTEERS. On Friday week the friends of the three men who are shortly leaving for the Cape entertained them at the Goat Hotel. In the unavoidable absence of Surgeon-Lieutenant Humphreys, the chair was occupied by the vicar, who was supported by Mr R Humphreys. Mr Humphreys, in an eloquent address on the causes of the war and its progress, deplored very strongly the criticisms passed by others than the men on the street oil the failures of our Generals when complete suocess was not theirs. The difficulties to be overcome were enormous and it would be as well if we. com- fortably settled at home, were less garrulous about our brave men abroad. Sergt-Instrnctor Betts urged each of the Volunteers to secure a comrade so that the Llanfair half Company might be the strongest and most efficient in the Battalion. He hoped that their departing comrades would cover themselves with glory and add fresh lustre to the evergreen laurels of the 24th.—The Rev W Joues said it was his arm conviction that our Empire had justice and right on its side and was consequently bound to succeed. He heartily agreed with Sergt Betts that it was a most desirable thing to strengthen the Llanfair Company. It was his great pleasure to present each of the men with a Testament, prayer and hymn-book, cigarette cases and box of cigarettes, which had been subscribed for by a few friends.- Col-Sergt Astley suitably replied.
