NESTON. CAROLS AT THE CHURCH.—At the close of the service at the parish church on Sunday evening the choir, in accordance with the annual custom, sang several carols, including those old favourites "The First Nowell," "When Christ was born," and "It was in the winter's cold." The congrega- tion remained in a body while the carols were being rendered.

Marsden Potter, Mus. iiae., was given in the parish church on Saturday evening. The recitals, as was to be expected, do not draw the masses of a country district, but there was a select audience who appeared to greatJy apprecinte the works so ably interpreted by Mr. Potter The latter was assisted by Mr. Arthur Pemberton, who gave an artistic rendering of the vocal portions. The pro- gramme was as follows Allegro in F Sharp Minor" (Guilmaut), Prelude and Fugue in C Minor" (Bach), song Nazareth" (Gounod), Sonato in C Minor (No. 2) (Mendelssohn), air "It must be ll so" (Jeptha) (Handel), "March Religeuse" (Chauvetj, "Prelude to the 3rd Act Lohengrin" (Wagner). THE OHIO MINSTRELS.—The Ohio Min- strels, who despite their name ha, I from this sido of the Herring Pond," most of .them in fact bo- ing Cestrians, gave a very sucoer.siul entertain- ment in the Neston Town 1-Iali on Saturday even- ing. The entertainment proved a very agreeable break in one of the most depressing Christmas seasons known to Neet-cnians, and tie large halt was filled. The very yared and attractive pro- gramme vis well rendered, the extravagant hum- our of the" sooty ones" keeping- the a udicllco in oontinual roars of laughter, while it was charac- terised by a refinement that oould' not affront tho most fastidious. Encores were very frequent, and the entertainment in consequence lasted nearly three hours. THE FOREMEN OF JURIES.—At a recent inquest held at Neston a remarkable incident took place wf,.cll has excited much local comment. A respectable tradesman was proposed as chairman, and the propo.sit.on was duiy seconded. As there was no opposition, he was about to take the chair when Poiicc-Sergeant Wharam inter- fered, and' stated that another tradesman, whom he named, was foreman, and that the jury no 10nger had the power to elect their foreman, tho privilege being now vested in the police-officer that called tho jury together. Doubts were frœiy expre-sed that such a retrogade reguiatcn had ever taken place, but the newly-elected forema.n was promptly deposed and the pol ceman's nomi- nee took his place. A little inquiry has of course shewn that the Sergeant was in error, and such an innovation has never even been contemplated, but that the ancient privileges of the coroner's jury remain just as they were.
