CONCERT AT CYMMER. On Monday, the 7th inst., a very successful concert was given by the St. John's Church Choir, assisted by several well-known local artistes. The chair was occupied by the Rev S. Jackson (vicar), and after he left by Mr W. H. Plummer, both of whom fulfilled their duties with tact and geniality. The accompanist was Mr J. J. Deer. The hits of the evening were undoubtedly "The Skidmore Guards (in character), and Mr Matthew Hughes' songs, "Killaloe" and" Dr Quack" (also in character), all of which fairly brought down the house, encores being loudly demanded. The Guards in their uniforms of various colours, looked a veritable "awkward squad," while the "Irishman," and the "Quack" were well im- personated. The Vicar, with his song Mentra Gwen" also received an encore, to which he responded with Y deryn pur." The Cymmer Drum and Fife Band (who very generously gave their services gratuitously) rendered their overtures in excellent and finished style, proving to the listeners that the band's reputation, which was not marred by a single defeat last year, is well deserved. The rest of the performers did their part admirably; in fact, it is hard to particularise or to criticise, the programme being, on the whole, an excellent one. The usual votes of thanks and the singing of the National Anthem brought a most pleasant evening to a close. Appended is the programme Overture—"Let the hills resound The Band Pianoforte solo-" Buehmen's dance "Miss Bertha RilIA Song (in character)-" The Pedlar Mr Thos Jones Song—"Angela ever bright and fair Mrs J.
