MIDDLETOWN. WESLEYAN CHURCH.—The thirtieth anniver- sary of the Wesleyan Sunday School was held on Sunday. There were good congregations at the whole of the services. At the afternoon service an address was given by Mr C. T. M. Taylor, of Newtown, and there were recitations and special singing by the scholars. At the evening service there was a large congregation, to which Mr C. T. M. Taylor delivered a powerful and telling homily. During the course of the evening Mr Taylor also rendered a couple of greatly appreciated solos. The Choir (conducted by Mr John Davies) nicely rendered The mist rolled away and Forward." A pleasing duet was given by Miss Ethel and Master Harold Hilditch. The collections were in excess of previous years. Severe thunderstorms raged in various parts of the country last week, and several persons were killed, great damage done to property, and a num- ber of sheep killed. The passenger receipts of the Cambrian Rail- ways Company for the week ending June 5th show a decrease of XI,375, but that in respect of mer- chandise, minerals, and live stock showed an in- crease of .£230. All the Town, Urban, and County Councils in Wales are being invited by the Carnarvon Town Council to join in a petition to the King, pray- ing for a place for the Red Dragon on the Royal Standard. The Welsh members of Parliament are also being asked to join in the petition. Welsh- men are being reminded of the fact that the Red Dragon was a conspicuous figure upon the standard and coinage of the Tudor Sovereigns. When charged before the Aberystwyth Bench with having refused to break stones at the work- house, Alfred Smith, labourer, of Wolverhampton, said he could not do the work on 3oz. of bread and a pint of water. He starved enough on the road, without having to starve in the workhouse, and he would not go back to finish the task.—The Bench sentenced Smith to fourteen days.—Smith: I don't care if you send me for a month; it is not the first time.The Bench then doubled the sentence. See the ONOTO Window at No. 19, Broad-street, Newtown. It has been noticed with regret (says the 1 Times') that Lord Wolverhampton's ill- health prevented him from attending the first Cabinet Council held after the recess, and he has also unfortunately been pre- vented from attending most. of the other Cabinet Councils held this year. The an- ticipation that Lord Wolverhampton would probably resign his office of Lord Presi- dent of the Council, which was general when changes were made in the Ministry at the beginning of the season, may now shortly be realist*.
