On Wednesday evening, by the invitation of the landlady, Mrs Lewis, a number of her friends assembled at the hotel to a banquet on the occasion of her leaving the valley to take over the York Hotel, at Bridgend. During the two years or so Mrs Lewis has been at the Ffaldau Hotel, she has proved an ideal hostess, and has well maintained the good reputation of the house. An evidence of this was afforded in the representative company of Wednes- day evening, who had come from all parts of the Vallev to partake of Mrs Lewis' hospitality for the last time as 'Mine Hostess' of the Ffaldau.

Hansard, Bridgend Mr Blandy; Messrs Edward Thomas, Thomas Roberts. J. Evans, Beehive, T. J. Evans, B. Noyle, — Williams, Newport, A. Lawrence, B. T. Bale, Charles Hunt, Crooke, Evan Williams, David Llewellyn, Bridgend, Baa-nall Weeks, John Llewellyn, Jeremiah William's, Roderick, Cerddor Davies, &c. The repast was of a most ample anu sumptuous character, excellently served and waited, and in every respect worthy of the culinary skill of the pr oprietress. The recent addition to the hotel in the shape of a capacious and well-arranged billiari-room admirably served the purpose of a banquetting;hall, and here a fair number of guests were entertained without experiencing any of the disagreeableness cf overcrowding. After dinner was over the company settlad down to a most enjoyable social evening. The toast of the evening, that of the outgoing tenant, Mrs Lewis, was enthusiastically received. The speakers, one and II all bore testimony to the excellent business qualities of Mrs Lewis, and the expressions of good-will for her future success were unanimous. Mrs Lewis annronriately responded, and gave expression to the regret (she felt at leaving Pontycymmer. The health of Mr Tom Lewis, as the future land- lord of the houss, was also warmly toasted. A number of exc llent songS and recitations ren- dered by various members of the company at inter- vals helped to complete a most enjoyable evening, and the party separated at midnight. The whole of the fish, fruit, and vegetables used at the banquet were supplied by Mr Gibbon, fruiterer, &c., Bridgend.
