CHI(ISTM.te.-The abops are prettily dres3ad, and everything bespeaks Christmas coming, but the weather is disastrous-we are flooded everywhere. Father Christmas is so much an indoor guest, so fond of feasting and fun. and distributing presents that we can welcome him warmly despite wiDtlliud rain. Chrietmas with all its iiejoicings brings also madness, for it is a time that the raoie thoughtful of na feel keenly the bitter remembrance of those who ODoe shared our Christmas festivities. We wish all, young and old, thorough enjoyment, pleasure, and happiness, and that we may oommemcrate the greatest day our world ever knew, as beooming THE POST-OFFICE.—After much oonjectare and discussion as to the merits and demerits of the various candidates for the appointment of sub- postmaster here, the lot has fallen npon Mr Owen Dew, who many will remember as the first station- master at Amlwch in the days of the Anglesey Central Railway, and who in that and in Bobscquent cffices has always proved himself to be a moatreliable and worthy man,suitable and competent for the post he has just attained. The premises opposite the Castle Hotel, where the duties will be cummenosd on Monday Lext, are central and roomy. While we rinfl in the new we regret the old. Public feel- ing has been strong in favour and in the hope that Mr Wiilitm Jones would continue in office; sterling, cpright, and important we frit our business secure and fcacred in his keeping, and we are very sorry to wish him gocd-bye as a postmaster, who has faithfully served a fickle public and a strict Govern- ment for over twelve yeare. Prior to Mr William Jones Mr David Jones, the printer, was postmaster, he having succeeded Miss Judd, who retired after having, iti connection with her late father, Mr Samuel Judd, bad the post-office here 38 years. It waa then within a few yards of the premises now selected.
