TREOASTLE. BRITISH SCHOOL EXAMINATION AND TEA PARTY. —The above school was examined on Tuesday, the 9th instant, by Joseph Bowstead, Esq., Her Majesty's inspector, and D. J. Davies, Esq,, his assistant. They were highly pleased at the efficient state of the school, and, from all that could be gathered then and after (although the official report has not yet been received), the school is in a much higher state of proficiency this than any previous year, which is very encouraging to both master and managers. At 2.30 p.m. the children, to the number of about 140, together with the teachers and managers, met in the school-room, and having been formed into a procession, headed by the managers, under the superintendence of the master, Mr, D. S. Thomas, they marched through the town, singing several very pretty little tunes, and returned to the school-room again to be regaled with the cup that cheers, but not inebriates," which had been prepared by the ladies of the town and neighbourhood. After ample justice had been done to the tea and cake by the children, and several hundreds of apples had been dis- tributed among them, they returned home, after having thoroughly enjoyed the treat. Meanwhile the teachers, managers, and other friends had their tea together, and spent a social evening. FAIR.—The usual hiring fair was held here on Saturday and Monday last. Wages were very high. Both fairs were well stocked with cattle and pigs, which were immediately disposed of, owing to the large number of dealers present. THE BOROUGH MEMBER. Lord Hyde, M.P., accompanied by a fewfof his friends at Trecastle, visited the house of each of the Liberal voters on Saturday last, and received the most cordial reception.
