FUNERAL OF COLONEL TURBERVILL. SYMPATHETIC REFERENCES. The funeral of this deeply-lamented gentleman took plaoe on Friday last, when the mortal re- mains, which had hitherto encased so generous a nature, and swayed so mighty an influence in the county, were interred in the private burial ground of the ancient Turbervill family, adjacent to the parish church. In accordance with the expressed wish of the colonel, the funeral was of II. simple and almoet private character, and his desire in this respect was reverently followed. However, when the knoll of the ancient church bell began to toix, proclaiming that the hour was fast approacning when the grave would claim as its own another gallant master of the house of Turberville, there was a fairly representative, gathering at the front of the Abbev. Shortly afterwards the solemn -;rt. moved slowly through the vardway to- wards the front entrance of the church. The coffin was borne by the following ten persons, who. as old tenants and trades- men on the estate, had previously been notified: Evan Lawrence. John Thomas, Evan David nygars). D.

At the annual dinner of the Bridgend Fat Stock Society, held on Thursday in last week, Mr. A. J. Williams. M.P. for South Glamorgan, in responding to the toast of the donors .said he was glad of the opportunity of responding, because it enabled him to say a word upon a. matter which had, he was sure. affected them as it had affected him. They had lost a donor—a donor by the side of whom he fslt ashamed to «tand for any little thing he may have done for this society, or ior anything that contributed to ,ihe happiness and prosperity of the town and 1 district. He could assure them that since he had come into the county, nothing had affected him ¡I more than the loss they had had during the last few days. There was no man he ventured to say —there was no man who had such a broad sense of what he owed to both his wealth and position as Col. Turbervill. (Hear, hear.) He was a sin- cere and consistent friend, and a man who, as he I had said, always possessed a keen sense of duty, and who constantly in season and out of season discharged that duty. The hon. member con- cluded with these words, To me there is no loss I. which has come home to my heart more than the death of Col. Turbervill."
