THE COEDPOETH ORCHESTRA.—About twelve months ago a few young men formed themselves into a string band. Since then they have plodded on perseveringly with their studies, and under the leader- ship of Mr Joseph Parry, Moss, have made splendid progress. A concert held on Monday seems to have been a much expected treat, for the largest room of the Penygelli schools was crowded to an uncomfortable degree, this more than ever adding weight to the plea for a Public Hall here. The object of this concert was to raise funds for founding a resident orchestra in the district. Monday night's concert was held under the patronage of the Right Hon. G. Osborne Morgan, M. P., Sir W. W. Wynn, Bart., and Mr C. J. Gibbons. C.C., Adwy.

Price's Will 0' the Wisp," next brought him well merited cheers. The brass band of Coedpoeth, under the conductorship of Mr Edward Robert-, delighted all with The Anchor's Weighed. Miss Maggie Jones, Wern, a little girl of about eleven sang Come Birdie Come," and to an encore responded with "Please give me a penny, air." Mr Ambrose Jones gave as a violin solo The Huntsman's Chorus." The Chairman sang Jessie," most humorously, and, as an encore, he sang Y troed gore' nol," with great success. The Dream on Waitz, by the string band was not given quite as precisely as the others, but, considering, it was very creditably performed. During the interval, Mr Wru. Eilis A.C. (Alaw Gynan), proposed a vote of thanks tj all who had helped the young men, both as performers and sup- porters. He said the object these aspiring young men had in view was one which deserved their sym- pathy. Wales had been laboring under great intellectual disadvantageS-3ho was now in fact. Wales was the land of song, but its sons had not had sufficient training to be able to master any very great production", consequently when we wished to hear them performed as they should be, we were obliged to import the men as well as the music from across the dyke. Let them. therefore, give this movement their support, and let them enhance the cause of music amongst the people who were proverbial for their love of it.—Mr R. Griffiths seconded the motion, and it was carried amidst much cheering.—The chorus, God is great." by the brass band, was majestically performed. The trio, "Allegro," by Pleyel, was worthy of the acknowledgment it received from the appreciative portion of the audience. Mr Parry and friends were the violinists. The song, Cloddio'r Ffynon," by Mr Samuel Jones, waa accompanied by the string baud. The fantasia of Welsh airs," by the same band, was exceedingly good. Mr Edward Humphreys sang Galwad y Tywysog" very effectively. After the violin solo, liattHta's celebrated Andante in G," was given by Mr Parry, the brass band played "God Save the Queen," and all dispersed well pleased with the first evening's entertaiument by the String Band. Mr Walter Williams, Bryntê1 accompanied very ably. The secretary of the band and orchestra is Mr Ambrose Jones, Smelt. DEATH OF TWO TEACHERS.

Tea was provided by the ladies connected with the Church, and was largely attended. At the literary meeting in the evening Mr Parry, Acrefair School, presided.

I CHORCH SUNDAY SCHOOL TREAT.—On Tuesdav the young members and those who were unavoidably absent on the day of the trip to Rhyl in July last, were enteitained to a substantial tea in the Girls* School-room. Mias McGill gave a table- to the G. F.S. members, after which the teachers of both Bangor and Eyton, with a few friends, were provided with an excellent tea at the Rectory. The children formed a procession after tea from the school-room to the Rectory grounds, where they enjoyed various games till the close of the evening. Before leaving each child was provided with a packet of sweets, and an ample supply of fruit. Three cheers were heartily given for the Rev. G. H. McGill, rector, and the Misses McGill, also for the Rev. J. M. Parry. curate, who has labored much to increase the numbers in the Sunday School. The weather was fine, and a most enjoyable evening was spent by teachers and scholars. I HOLT AND FARNDON. KESCUE FROM DROWNING BY A BOY.—A noy namea Harry Whit?, of Churton, whilst fishing from the wall below Farndon bridge, fell into the river. Another boy named John Jones, son of Mr Jones, Nag's Head, saw the accident and ran to his assistance and pulled him out. DAMSON CRop.-On Tuesday, the gathering of the damsons pretty generally commenced. There is what is termed a half-crop, notwithstanding the great damage done to the trees and the fruit by the late storms. Damsons will this year be in great demand, as the strawberry crop was partially a failure, and they are by far the best fruit for preserving. Loss OF A HORSE.—An accident occurred on the evening of the 17th inst., resulting in the loss of a very valuable horse, the property of Mr George Parker, Farndon. Harry Parker, the owner's son, was in charge of a horse and cart laden with corn, and, having to cross a ditch, the road over which was flooded, a plank had been placed for the driver to walk on. The boy slipped off the plank, and, to save himself, seized the bridle and so pulled the horse into the ditch, where it was drowned before assistance could be rendered. The boy escaped with a wetting. I m_- HOPE AND CAERGWRLE. I'IL__LA_I I m m ma « m i S"tl I JLHE JEACHERS.rne memDers or Tne unesw Teachers' Association are visiting Caergwrle to-day. It would be a capital opportunity for the Wrexham Association to fraternise with their brethren, who would be delighted to see them at the Assembly Rooms. THE PARISH CHURCH.—The Curate (Rev. R Roberts) announced on Sunday evening that a course of lectures on the incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ would be delivered in the church on every Friday preceding the first Sunday in the month, each lecture being delivered twice, by the Rev. J. Hutchins, of Broughton. CAERGWRLE PETTY SESSIONS, WEDNESDAY. —Before R. V. Kyrke, Esq., in the chair, W. Thorn. Eiq. W. Carstairs Jones, Esq., And R. H. V. Kyrke, Esq. I A NEIGHBOURLY BOW. I Jlilizaoeth burrows, wife of Robert Burrows. living at the Barracks, Ffrwd, charged Sarah Ellen Peters, wife of Edward Peters, of the same place, with assaulting her, and asked that she should be bound over to keep the peace.—The case had been adjourned from the last court for the production of further evi- dence.—The complainant said she had lent the defendant a pig trough, and when she asked the defendant to give it her back, she refused to do so, and took it to her house. Complainant's husband on the 11th ult. took the trough out of the stye, and com- plainant afterwards took it into her house. Defendant came to see complainant about the matter, and finally struck her in the head with a stone.—Alice Jones, living at the Barracks, said complainant's husband called to her, and she went into the housa. She found the complainant lying on the screen with her head bleeding.—The defendant said the complainant and her husband had thrown water over her, and had struck her with a brush.—The defendant was bound over in the sum of 25 to keep the peace for six months, and ordered to pay the costs, 133.-Sarah Ellen Peters, the defendant in the last case, charged George JoneR, collier, living at the Barracks, with using abusive language towards her, and asked that he might be bound over to keep the peace. The case was finally dismissed. Sarah Ellen Peters then charged Robert Burrows with stealing a pig trough.— The Chairman said he thought from what they had heard in a previous case that they could not deal with the case. It was a dispute as to the ownership of the trough, and they could not deal with that. It was quite competent for the parties to settle the matter ia the County Court. T8 TT « TMHPASStNS ATTBB. GABIK.% f n. I fivan ttcloices, a gamekeeper in the employ or ivir R. H. V. Kyrke, charged Samuel Parry, Cerney, and Thomas Broad, with trespassing in pnrsuit of game. Broad did not appear.—Hookes said that on the 24th ult., in the afternoon, he saw the defendants on a farm in the occupation of Mr John Roberts, over which Mr Kyrke had the rights of shooting. They were working the hedges with a white terrier dog. He went up to them, and on searching Broad found a rabbit and a wet net on him.—The defendants were each finpd 103 and costs.—Mr R. V. Kyrke and Mr R. H. V. Kyrke did not sit on She Bench in this case. I DISMISSED. I Mary Bartley, wife of Jesse Bartley, living at Rhydtalog, charged her brothers-in-law, James Bartley, rockman, Ty Gwvn, and Evan Bartley, rockman, Wern Hall, with using threatening language towards her on the 28th ult., and asked that they might be bound over to keep the peace.—The case was finally dismissed. I HOPE WHISPERS. The station masters and other officials on the line are now clothed in gorgeous array. I. It never rains but it pours." Last week was a chapter of accidents. The members of the Buckley Engineers' Band, are not at all satisfied with the adjudicator's decision at the Holywell Eisteddfod. They are confident they are entitled to the first prize. An amusing incident occurred in connection with the collection at Hope Church on Sunday morning. The offering was freely given. By the beneficent non-intervention of the powers that be, aquatic spotts were freely indulged in, at the beginning of last week. The Sam lane and Abermorddu road appeared as miniature lakes. The cry in Caergwrle used to be for more water." Now there is more than sufficient for all the camels in the Sahara desert. Again, why not utilise the Abermorddu canal for some commercial enterprise. Hope was well represented at the Wrexham Show, and some of the plums came this way. The National School at Bridgend opened on Mon- day, after three weeks' holiday, under the supervision of the new master, Mr Jones, lata of Fulham Board Schools, London. It is a curious fact that the two boys who broke their arms some few weeks ago have again fractured them, this time in a severer form. Drs. Davies and Powell have been unremitting in their attentions to the poor fellow who was so fear- fully iujured at Llay Hall. We understand that Mr James Elliott Fidler, of Llay Hall, haq been appointed secretary to the Half- way Club, M.U.O.O. No doubt this gentleman's influence and business- like tact will ensure increased prosperity to the lodge. I PONTBLYDDYN AND LEESWOOD. I CONCERT.—A concert was held in Leeswood National Schools on Monday evening, in aid of the funds for procuring a new organ for the English Wesleyan Chapel. Mr Thomas Darbyshire, C.C., presided.

Mrs Crew sang in a very charming manner, and we hope to bear her again before a Leeswood audience. Messrs Fleet and Tunnicliff's rendition of Love and War" was much appreciated. This was Mr Parry's first appearance at Leeswood, and his comic songs kept the audience in roars of laughter. Mr Samuel Evans proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman, the performers, and also to the Rev. W. L. Protheroe for so kindly grant- ing the use of the schoolroom. This was carried amid applause. The chairman replied, and the I audience separated after singing theNational Anthem. FLINT.

Some people are puzzled to know when they should marry, and when they do take the deciaiva step they are puzzled to know why they did it. Some are puzzled whether Home Rule for Wales is desirable, others when the General Election will take place. But when they come to decide which is the BEST Kemedy for Coughs, Colds, and Bronchitis, every person in Wales has a clear brow. They clearly understand that FRANCIS'S BALSAM AKES THE LEAD. It stands at the head of the list for all diseases of the Throat and Lungs. It acts like magic in breaking up a Cold. A Cough is soon subdued, and tightness of the Chest EFFECTUALLY RELIEVED. It is a specific for the Coughing and Wheezing of Bronchitis or the Asthma, complaints which are very harrassing to sufferers themselves, and annoying to others. Take heed, there is always danger in delay. TRY A Is OR 2s 6D BOTTLE FRANCIS'S BALSAM. I8Mo
