BETIIESDA.-The Band of Hope commenced last winter was resumed In at week it is open to all children. A young mon's Bible Class has been started in connection with the same church, though all young men are invited to attend. Both are conducted by the Rev. T. Witton Davies, B.A., of the college. The band of hope and the bible class will meet on Friday, evening. NOVEMEEIJ FAIR.—This fair was held yes- terday, and notwithstanding the fact that Carmarthen fair was held on the same day, it turned out to be a really good fair. There was a brisk demand for cat- tle of all kinds and excellent prices were obtained. Cows with calves at their side, sold freely at prices ranging from X14 to X21. The horse fair was well attended but the demand was slack, and the busi- ness transacted was limited in extent and prices had a downward tendency. Sheep, especially butchers animals, were in great demand and high prices pre- vailed. The number trucked were-cattle, 360; sheep, 280; there were no horses trucked. FAITHFUL WATCH DOGS.-Last week two tramps on their way from Carmarthen, arrived at a late hour in Narberth, and entered the yard of Mr Bushel, with the intention of resting themselves in the out-premises for the night The watch dog, how- ever, seems te have taken a dislike to their company, and having broken his chain kept them in durance vile. Mr Bushel's terrier then came out of the stable and went to Mr Bushel's house, and by his incessant barking aroused the inmates. On proceeding to the yard, whither the dog brought Mr Bushel by his gestures, he found the two men unhurt, but in safe custody. Having called the dog off they were re- leased, but they dared not stir until the dog was called away. THE SEVERE FROST OF SUNDAY MORNING LAST.—In respect of the severe frost which came upon us so suddenly on Saturday night and Sund.iy morn- ing last, Mr Griffin, gardener to Baron de Rutzen, Slebech Park, has kindly •->nt us the following inter- esting particulfkrs: Our thermometer registered 8 dc. of frost on Sunday morning this was, with the excep- tion of a little hoar once or twice, the first frost of the season, and it occurred more than a month later than the frost of last year. Last season the dahlias and other summer bedding plants were cut down on the 7th of October; this season they looked quite fresh, and had a lot of bloom on them up till last Saturday, the 11th November. A few swallows even were to be seen flying about here last Saturday, and among other birds, very few of the winter migrates are to be seen as yet. We had a very severe hailstorm here on Thursday last, many of the stones being larger than marbles. ACCIDENT.—Yesterday (Tuesday) evening a serious carriage accident happened on the Camrose road. Mr J. Penn, of Camrose accompanied by two ladies was driving into town, and when he arrived at that part of the road known as the Dells," they came into contact with a man on horseback who was returning from Haverfordwest fair. In the col- lision Mr Penn's carriage was partly upset, a shaft was broken, and the occupants severely shaken the farmer was thrown violently from his horse, and the horse was seriously injured. The force of the col- lision may be realised when it is stated that the point of the shaft of Mr Penn's vehicle penetrated deeply the head of the farmer's horse just below the eye. After recovering its feet from the accident the far- mer's horse appears to have dashed back towards town, and was stopped in a bleeding and exhausted condition near the Old Bridge. Mr D. E. James, veterinary surgeon having arrived soon succeeded in dressing the wound and stopping the flow of blood, after which it was removed to Mr James's veterinary infirmary. THE COLLEGE.- On Sunday and Monday last, the 12th and 13th inst., services were held in connexion with the settlement of Mr E. Aubrey, late student at the College, Haverford west, as pastor of the English Baptist Church, Tynewydd, Ogmore Valley, Glamorganshire. On Sunday three sermons were preached by the Rev. W. E. Wat kins, Feinbrey, and on Monday morning, the Rev. T. Cole, Bridgend, preached. On Monday afternoon the ordination service took place, when the Rev. B. Davies, Briton Ferry, read the Scriptures and prayed. Dr. Davies briefly stated the nature of a Christian church, and asked the usual questions to the pastor elect. These were'concisely answered by Mr Aubrey, and the call being publicly confirmed and accepted, the Rev. M. Morgan, London, offered the ordination prayer. Afterwards Dr. Davies delivered the charge to the minister and Mr Watkins that to the Church. This interesting service was brought to a close by Mr Colo, who prayed and pronounced the benediction. In the evening the service was held in the Welsh Baptist Chapel, a spacious and handsome place of worship, when the Rev. John Hughes, Nantymoel, and Dr. Davies preached to a large and attentive congregation. Mr Aubrey enters upon his pastorate with ohoering prospects of success.
