On Boxing night and Tuesday night he will dispense X5 in competitive prizes. Such attrac- tions should draw large crowds to these excellent and instructive entertainments, OTHE STORM.—Not in the history of the present generation has such a long and persistent gale accompanied by such an enormous downpour of rain awopt over the town as was experienced last week. The climax was reached on Friday night, when the elements even drove the political en- thusiasts into shelter. The river has not reached such a level for many years, and the stokers at the Gas Works were compelled to pump for their very lives all Friday night to prevent the water rushing to the furnaces. By strenuous efforts they succeeded in keeping it out, but everyone was well nigh exhausted on the Saturday morn- ing. It was impossible to approach the Half- penny Bridge on Saturday morning and the oper- atives at the Cambrian and Kymric Mills had to go round the Iron Bridge. The water overflowed in Severn-square, and had it risen a little higher, it would have surrounded the Conservative Club Rooms. The cellars of many inhabitants were converted into ponds, and it is feared that the dampness in the houses will result in much sick- The river over-ran a large portion of the Rack Field, but this time the wall seems to have remained intact.
