USK. Agent-Jfrs. E. K Jones, Stationer FLOWER SHOW.-The Llantrissent Flower Show is to be held on Wednesday next, aLd no doubt, should the weather be fine, will be well patronized. A contemporary announces that Lord Raglan is negotiating for the purchase of Troy House, Mon- mouth, the late Duke of Beaufort's residence. OTTEB HUNTING.—Mr. Clay's subscription pack met on the town bridge on Thursday morning about half-past eight and worked up the river. A good many devotees of the sport were in attendance. OXFORD DISGREE.-Amongst those who took the degree of B.A. at Oxford last week we notice Mr. H. Stradling Williams, Wadham College, son of the Rev. C. Carne Williams, rector of Wolves- newton. WESLEYAN PARTY.—The annual tea in connection with the Wesleyan Chapel, was held at the Town Hall. on Thursday afternoon, and largely attended, amongst those present being a party of friends from Newport. In the evening addresses were delivered by several friends in the chapel. FORTHCOMING BAZAAR.—AS will be seen by advertisement, a Bazaar in aid of Bettws Church Restoration Fund will be held on the Brynderwen estate, on Thursday, July 13th. The event should prove a great attraction and a nice day's outing. Brakes will run from Usk, Pontypool, and Aber- gavenny in time for the opening. A Band will be in attendance, and we understand that the stalls will be well furnished with moderate-priced articles. A BREWERY OUTING.-On Wednesday morning the employees of Messrs. Hancock, Brewers, Cardiff, passed through Usk in eleven brakes, headed by a military band, on their way to Raglan Castle, and in the evening returned via the sims road. It appears that the party went by train to Newport and proceeded thence to Raglan by road. It is a long time since such a succession of brakes passed through the streets of Usk, and they naturally excited the inhabitants' curiosity. CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOL TREAT.—This fete took place on Wednesday afternoon, but in consequence of the uncertainty of the weather, tea was laid and partaken of in the National Schoolroom. The children were kindly waited upon by the Super- intendent (Deaconess Eleanor), Mrs. Freeman, and Sunday School teachers. Subsequently an adjourn- ment was made to the Fishpond Meadow (kindly lent by Mr. Rivers), where the children were joined by their parents, and games, races, etc., were in- dulged in. Swings were also erected by Mr. A. Gilbert, and were evidently much appreciated by the young people. Cheers for the various organisers of the fete concluded the proceedings.
