INTERCESSIONS AND CELEBRATIONS IN THE BARRY DISTRICT. Notwithstanding the fact that the public festivities in connection with the intended Coronation of the King on Thursday last had been officially postponed in consequence of his Majesty's illness. street decorations were general, and in many instances very imposing. The day was observed as a general holiday both in the town and at the docks, but, befitting the occasion, was very quietly spent. At St. Mary's Church, Barry Docks, an intercession service was held, and the Revs H. F. Williams, B.A., and I Humphreys officiated. At Holton road English Baptist Chapel, a united intercession service was held by the Free Churches of the town, conducted by Mr W J. Flower, president of the Free Church Council, and the Revs T. Pandy John, J. Jeffreys, W. D. Pellatt, Christmas J. Lewis, C. J. Clarke, J. Mydyr Evans, J. Lewis Jenkins, Evangelist O. Rees, and Mr S. R. Jones took part. At Tabernacle Welsh Congregational Chapel, Barry Docks, a similar services was held under the auspices of the Welsh Nonconformist Churches of the town, when the ministers and others who took part included the Rers Aaron Davies, D.D., D. H. Williams, M.A., Ben Evans, Owen Jones, W. Williams, W. Tibbott, and Mr John Lloyd. The services were of a solemn and impressive character. Intercession services were also held at Barry Parish Church, (Barry), St. Andrew's Major, and Wenvoe Churches. At Sully a village treat, provided by the rector (Rev J. Williams) and the principal parishioners, was held and at Dinas Powis the Coronation Sports came off. At Llandough and Leckwith the festivities were considerably modified, at the the latter place Mr and Mrs W. R. Shirley, The Woodlands, generously entertaining the whole of the villagers to tea. A village tea (catered for by Mr and Mrs T. Phillips, Holton-road, Barry Docks) was also held at Wen voe, to which fully three hundred sat down.
