CONGREGATIONAL SUNDAY SCHOOL TBA PARTY. -The beautiful weather of the past few days has been a pleasant relief after the cold and stormy winds of th. previous weak, and already the annua.1 Sunday school treata have began to fall into t-ieir allotted place among the many and varied periodica) .events of the neighbourhood. On Friday morning last the scholars of the above Sunday Schoos assembled at the schoolroom, New Ch arch-street, where a procession was formed, headed by a contin- eant of the Newtown Silver Band, set off at intervals by banners, flags, etc., and the long line of smartly dressed children, numbering about 250, appeared at their best. Arriving at the Canal side, where two boats had been prepared to convey tile party down to Giansevem Park, the work of embark- ment at once commeDced and after some little delay a start was mide. The ride in the boat took some considerable time. it being nearly four o'clock when they reached their destination, although th, Jott Newtown as early as 12-15, but to lovers of nature the journey was not at all tedious, as the varied scenes en route afforded plenty of room for contemplation, and the beautiful scented odour from wild flowers and hay was much appreciated. It may be stated that at Abermule refreshments wero supplied to the children. Immediately on reaching the landing staga at the Revel the procession w-is again formed and wend-id its way to Glansevern Park, Which had been kindly lent for the occasion by Mr A. C. Humphreys-Owen. Under the broad limbs of a group of treeJ the tables had been laid, and a substantial tea provided for the now hungry excur- sionists. Dining in the open air is at all times a pleasure, and on this occasion the pleasure was cos- aiderably enhanced as it being so hot the holding of the tea in a tent would have been almost insufferable. The tables were presided over by the following ladies, who had'plen'y of work to eater for the 400 who took tea: Mrs Griffiths, Miss Baker, Mrs Henry Roberts, Jlra Edward Watkin, Miss E. and N. Jones, Mrs Trow, Miss P. Watkin, Mrs Dd. Jones, Miss Lizzie Jones, Miss Davies, Mrs John Edwards, Mrs Hayes, and Miss Lillie Davies. After tea the scholars ranged themselves around the park and indulged in games, cricket and football being the chief features. Swings bad been arranged under the trees for the junior echola; an i the glad sound of the ohildren's voices mingled with the hum of the busy insects as they dived iito t.he honeyed recesses of the nodding blue- IMU, or hung on the trembling petal of the blushing foae. The garlens and grounds were thrown open, and large numbers paid visit-A to the sides of the placid lakes, the bosoms of which were covered with filiea. The cave at the rear of the gardens was as gagerly sought for as that of Endymion's by the enraptured Diana, and the gold fish in the sparkling fountain became a source of amusement to the younger fraternity. The band played for dancing And a very pleasant evening was spent. The arrange- ments were carried out by Messrs Henry Roberts, Edward Watk n, aud T. Rees, the latter also supplied the coufeotio lery. The tables and benches were i kindly lent by the frieu Is at tie Revel. At tin c;op. of the day the IHna., votes of th tnka were passed, and the party proceevied homeward, arriving at Newtjwn at a late hour. ABERHAFESP. The news of the birth f a sou and heir to E. B.
