We record with deep regret the death of Mr George Lewis, of Queen's Square, in this town, which occurred after a very painful illness on the afternoon of Wednesday last. Deceased, who was 5S) years of age, had been for very many years in the employ of Messrs. S. Green & Co., ironmongers, of this town. Although Mr Lewis' occupation was that of a blacksmith, his knowledge of machinery was very great indeed and in this respect he was capable of competing with many a skilled engineer. He enjoyed the fullest confidence of his employers and was held in great respect by his fellow workmen and all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. The inter- ment took place in S. Martin's Cemetery on Saturday afternoon. SLEBECII.—The Harvest Festival was held on Thursday evening, the 19th Oct. The service was conducted by the vicar, the Rev. W. Scott, M.A., assisted by the Rev. T. Atterbury Thomas, curate of St. Thomas. Haverfordwest. The Rev. G. Huntington, M.A., rector of St. Mary's, Tenby, preached a most impressive ser- mon. The decorations, consisting of choice flowers, fruit, and vegetables, with garlands of corn, &c., were tastefully arranged by Miss Philipps, of Picton Castle, Miss Scott, of Cresborough, and Mrs Burry, of Picton; these ladies were ably assisted by the head gardeners to Sir Charles and Lady Philipps, and the Baron de Rutzen, all of whom deserve the highest praise and thanks. The choir, under the leadership of Miss Philipps, acquitted themselves very creditably. The offertory was devoted to the Pembrokeshire and Haverfordwest Infirmary, and the service concluded with the benediction. CLEDDAU VALE TEMPERANCE UNION.-The half-yearly meeting of this new uuion was held at the Tabernacle, Maenclochog, on Monday, the 16th inst. A conference was held in the afternoon. The chair was occupied by the president (the Revd. D. Williams, Taber- nacle). There were also present the Rev D. Evans, Blaenconin (secretary), and the Rev. Jones, Ffynon. A very good number of delegates also attended. Prayer was offered by Mr J. Howells, Bryndyssil. The minutes of the last conference were read and confirmed. The chief business of the conference was to arrange for the annual Cymanfa which will be held at Blaenconin next June. After this was done the Rev Jones, Ffynon, closed with prayer. In the evening a public meeting was held. The Rev D. Williams, pastor, presided, and two powerful and eloquent addresses were delivered by the Revs Jones, Ffynon, and Ungoed Thomas, Carmarthen. The devotional part was conducted by the Rev. U. Thomas. There was a large and appreciative audience, and we hope good results will follow.
