(2AJSK8WS. AN AMUSING BLUNDER.—As many of our <.<*aders are aware the Montgomery-shire County C ouncil have recently caused to be erected a number of finger-poctc. throughout the county. By some unfortunate bl uuder a finger-post was erected at Cderews on which it states than the iistance to Newtown was 5l mile-, while a milestone a few yards on the Newtjwn sId. states it to be 6 miles to that place Anutherbiandei was that it was one mile to Pontdolgoch, while on(- at that place states it to be two miles to Caergws, Tt e wags of the city tried to Polve thi. problem bat failed until Boniface came-to.the rescue by staling that it was one of his customers who measured the road. While coming fio, his houee it was one mile, aud Z!(' he caused it to be entered accordingly but on returning he measured it again, when be found it to be two miles. Needless to say this explanation wa deemed satisfactory. GRAND EVBNINGL CONCEI&T'-OU Monday the 6th, inst., a concert was held in the Wesleyan Chapel by the Caerews United Choir.

M. Evans. The singing of toe N diollal Anthem brought a pleasant evening to a cluse. The cantata rendered is one of Root's best works, and is tuneful and pleasing throughout. Its suitability for Much performances was recognised by each of tho speakers, who also testified to the excels, lenl, tuition of the choir by its talented conductor.
