I NEWPORT. I I Agents—Messrs Qreenlomi ani Co., I I NEWPORT AND ABERGAVENNY ASYLUM.—At the first meeting of the Finance Committee of the Monmouthshire County Council it was decided to raise a loan of zC27,500 to pay out the Newport Corporation, who are erecting an asylum for the borough at Caerleon. Alderman J. Daniel was elected chairman of the committee, and Councillor T. J. Price, Tredegar, vice-chairman. FIRE AT WENTWOOD.—On Tuesday the house and offices of the manager of the Newport Corporation Water Works at Wentwood were destroyed by fire. Assistance could not be obtained in time to prevent the destruction of the buildings, which were of wood and corrugated iron. The kitchen was the scene of the outbreak, and Mr Macdonald, the manager, immediately gave the alarm, and with the assistance of a number of workmen endeavoured to stem the progress of the flames, while others removed papers and plans from the offices. So rapid was the spread of the flames that in an hour's time the whole of the premises were burnt. Mr Macdonald, in removing his grandson from the house, had his hair singed. His loss alone is estimated at £ 300. The premises were not insured.
