The annual meetings of this union, oonttining about twenty ohovru, were held 0<1 Tuesday am Wednesday last, The ohoira and singers have 00" become 10 numerous that it is a difficult matter to have a church largo enough to hold the festival, consequently this year it waa divided iato two parts.

Many of the clergy at Llandybie miubioed that tbe gathering together of so many bundreds 0' choristers and ainMr) coatd be broa?ht to betMr account. On Wednesday tha featival service wm over at one o'clock, and the several ohoira had to wait five hours, and some six hoars, for the train" to convey them to their raapactive homes. During tbees long hours a competitive meeting, 801 suggested by the Western Mail lastyear, could have been bald. Nothing could have been easier thau the erection ot a pavilion on a convenient spot, whore the whole choirs could meet, and the festival held undivided.
