Throughout the evening the beneficiaire and his audience were on the best of terms.

Mr. Rogers presented the Conductor of the A.I.C. Band with a set of carvers, as a token of the cordial relations that have existed between Mr. Rowe and himself during his stay.

BURGLARY ALkRM.-About half past one on Friday morning Mrs. Lloyd, Newry House, Mill Street, and her daughter were sleeping in the back room, when the latter, on awakening, thought she heard a noise in the shop. She woke her mother, and as Mrs. Lloyd was in the act ot getting up a man rushed past the foot of the bed, and pushed down the upper partial' the bedroom window which. was already partly open, and made his escape. Mrs. Lloyd threw a china candlestick after the man. The daughter rushed to the window, and saw a man walking towards the railway station, who kept more noise than the original on account of one of his shoe tips being lost. They im- mediately communicated with the police, and Sergeant Phillips and P.C. Jones found the man in the railway station, and took him into custody on suspicion." On investigation it was found the prisoner had come from Trefechan, where he had spoken to two constables previously, and had not succeeded in getting lodgings at Trefechan, and was under the influence of drink. He could not possibly have anything to do with the affair. He was formerly brought up before Dr. Howell, Esq., and discharged. Nothing had been stolen at Newry House, or disturbed in any way, and no trace had been left behind by the intruder, beyond the breaking of a pane of glass, which was caused by the falling of the window.
