BONTNEWYDD. The Concert in aid of the Testimonial to the late Eben Vardd took place on the 14th inst. in the National School of this place, kindly lent for the occasion by the Rev. J. C. Vincent, M. A. The promoter of the concert was Mr. Isaac Davies, postman, Bontnewydd, and was under the patronage of the lIon. Miss aud Miss Emily Wynn, Glynllifon. The audience was large and very respectable, among whom we noticed Rice W. Thomas, Esq., Coed Helen Hughes, Esq., (his brother); Mr. O. Thomas, sen., Mr. 0. Thomas, jun., and Miss Tho- mas, Carnarvon. The performers were Liew Llwyfo, Miss Davies (Mercti Megan), and Garmonydd, most ably accompanied by Mr. R. Roberts, Carnarvon. Mr. J. 0. Griffith (loan Arvon) was voted to the chair, in the ab. sence of the Rev. Mr. Vincent, and gave an address. Gwyndaf and Hy wel Tudur also favoured the meeting with choice specimens of Talcen Slip" effusions. Llew, • who was suffering from a sore throat, nevertheless, sang with much spirit" Old Simon the Cellarer, in English and Welsh, which was encored. HIs rendermg of" Celli y Melinydd" created quite a furore, I ias Davies sang with much taste Why don't you teh me why, Itobin 1" which was much applauded. Her rendering of leid- iwch a dyweyd wrth fy nghariad" elicited warm ap- plause also. Garmonydd possesses a very refined voice. His chaste rendering of the Maid of Llangollen was rewarded by a warm encore. The dashing manner in which he sang the Stirrup Cup" was much admired. Mr. Roberts favoured the audience with two impromptu solos on the pianoforte. As he is so well known, it would be superfluous to make any remark save that he acquitted himself most ably, as he always does. Both performances were warmly received. The National Au- them closed the proceedings.
