CHRISTMAS H OLIDAYS.-Thei-e has been some excite- ment in Carnarvon during the past week, in connection with the movement which has been set on foot for clos- ing the shops of the town on Saturday next, the 26th inot. It appears that the respected Mayor, in order to further this object, gave notice that the Carnarvou market, which was to be held on Saturday, would take place on Thursday next, the 21th inst., and thus the great inconvenience in closing the shops would be ob. viated. To this arrangement the great majority of the tradesmen at once fell in, and announced their intenti n to close their shops, but it appears that one of the town criers was sent round by somebody or other to announce that the market would be held as usual on Saturday, and that the shops would not be closed. This caused great indignation on the part of the great body of the tradesmen of the town, and a meeting was announced to take place in support of the mayor and the two day's holiday movement. This meeting came off on Tuesday evening last at the Guild-hall, Mr It. It. Roberts, Twt- hill, being in the chair, and there was a numerous and very respectable attendance. Mr Williams, Shop y Maes, in an appropriate speech, proposed the following resolu- tion :—" That this meeting pledges itself to support the majority of the tradesmen of this town in their resolve to close their places of business on Saturday after Christmas 1808, in conformity with the wish of his worship the mayor." The resolution having been se- conded by Mr John Griffith, jeweller, and supported by Mr Richard Griffith, draper, Mr William H. Owen, ditto, Mr Edward Foulkes, ditto, and Mr John Pugli, grocer, was put to the meeting, and carried by acclamation. On the motion of Mr Vaughan Williams, seconded by Mr Rathbone Jones, a vote of thanks was awarded to the chairman, and the meeting terminated with three hearty cheers for the mayor. We believe that all the drapers of the town, with one or two exceptions, have given in their adhesion to the movement, and that the grocers are unanimous in its favour.
