A cor- respondent writesThe pressure of woik during the past Christmas has exceeded everything before experienced, the number of parcels and letters showing a large increase. The revival of trade in increase. The revival of trade in the" neighbourhood has had a mar1^ ..non the Christmas work, but ScSnlj to Post Office staff dId not- regret this evidence of increased comfort and prosperity among then neighbours, although their own labou s were added to thereby. Christinas m the Post Office brings many a touch of romance and the most hidebound and unimaginative person could hardly avoid a Sow of pleasure at seeing enormous piles of parcels and packages ;>fe^ conceivable shape and size all filled w ith welcome gifts to and from friends and Relatives, while the tiniest tot very often hag a huge parcel addressed to him or herself as large as the tiny little body in all Then the letters and cards that descend upon the faithful officials. in perfect avalanches. They are filled with greetings and kindly remembrances from those perhaps long severed by great dis- tances: It is a hard time for the officials but too, a glad time, in spite of the work and worry, and m spite of, the rather thoughtless and unkindlyJ™?al tience of a very few <n the ^;iei ioublic. It is gratifying to learn that jportmadoc, in spite of greater pressuie than ever, not a single letter or Pai'ce- missed any dispatch or delivery and the Postmaster and his staff areto be con- gratulated. The deJay in the morning H^bverv on Friday and Saturday was m ™ Z7 du. Yo the Post Office. It ;yM by the trains failing connection at Afonwen. So far as the Post Office is concerned, every single mail was punctually and accurately dealt with. | It was the failure of connection of trains which caused the delays to mails. For instance, Saturday's morning mails, arrived in Portmadoc nearly three hours late, being brought from Afonwen by special train. This season the general public acted very wisely in posting early. That, of course, is an advantage to the Post Office, but if the public only fully realised the extent of the advantage to themselves it would become the regular practice. Parcels should begin to be posted three or four days before Christmas Day. The rush and the crush would then be avoided and the parcels would reach their destination in good time and in good condition Condolence. —> Salem Cfongregation al Church on Sunday night, on the proposi- tion of the Rev.

Lloyd Evans (in j chair); Alderman Maurice Jones, Alderman Anthony, Col. Gough, Sir Herbert Ellis, Dr S. W. Griffith, Dr! Gwenogfryn EVans, G. Hughes Rob- erts, C. H. Lloyd, and Wm. Thomas, Esqrs. Dismissed on Paying Costs—Wm John Jones, Irevor, was charged by Inspector Wm knelling, of the R.S.P.C.A., with having worked a horse in an unfit state on Deoember 6th, and John G. Jones, father of the defendant was charged with having caused the horse to be worked. P.C. 31 said the horse was attached to a bread van and was suffering from two wounds-one on the right shoulder and another under the saddle.—G. J. Rob- erts, veterinary surgeon, said he exam- ined the horse on December 20th and found it in good working condition. He saw but one wound. The defendant was detected largely as the result of having used pads. The pads undoubtedly re- lieved the horse; in his opinion it was not cruelty to have worked the horse with pads on the wound.—J Griffith Jones, one of the defendants, said he put on a t.ew collar with the pads immediately he saw the wouna, and the horse did not seem to be in pain afterward. Nobody told him that the horse was in pain until Decem- ber 6th, when the police officer told him. The horse, at the request of Inspector Snelling, had not been worked since.—In cross-examination, defendant said the horse had been treated with ointment since December 6th. He did not recol- lect having said that he considered it cruel to have worked the horse.—Reply- ing to tne Bench, defendant said he changed the collar because the old one was hard and he wanted something easier for the wound.—Mr Evan R. Davies, who appeared tor the defendants, asked the Bench in the circumstances to dismiss the case on payment of costs.—The Bench be- lieved it was a case of error of judgment and dismissed the charge as against both defendants on payment of the costs amounting to 7s each. Cross-summons. — Elizabeth Williams, King's Head, charged Mary Tviorgan, King's Head-street, with assault. A cross summons was issued by the defendant. Mr Wm George appeared for Miss Wil- liams and Mr J R Anthony for Mrs Mor- gan.—Miss Williams, giving evidence, said she was going down King's Head- street when Mrs Morgan came along and struck her in the face with something hard—she thought it was a key—until the blood flowed. Miss Williams added that she gave Mrs Morgan no provocation whatever.—Cross-examined: Miss Wil- liams denied she first struck Mrs Morgan with a basket. All she did was to de- fend herself with a basket when Mrs Mor- gan was hammering her.—Ellis Williams, a youth, said he heard a row ancf looking through a window saw Mrs Morgan strike Miss Williams in the face and pull her hair. All he saw Miss Williams do was to defend herself with a basket. — Cross-examined He saw Miss Williams strike Mrs. Morgan.-— Mrs Morgan, giving evidence, said she was going down the street when Miss Williams pushed her and struck her in the face with a basket. She (Mrs Morgan) then defended herself.-Croxamined, she said she did not notice any blood on the face of Miss Williams. She certainly struck Miss Williams, but it was after Miss Williams had struck her. It was untrue to say that she cought hold of Miss Wil- liams by tne hair. Nor did she swear as was asserted by Ellis Williams.—J. R. Toleman said he saw Mrs Morgan and Miss Williams meet in King's Head- street. tie saw Miss Williams strike Mrs Morgan in the face with the basket. That was the first thing out of the way which he saw. MTS Morgan retaliated by striking Miss Williams with her fist in the face. They struck each other sev- eral times afterward, Miss Williams using the basket and Mrs Morgan her fist. Mrs Morgan was the first to leave the scene. —The Bench bound both parties over to keep the peace for six months and or- dered them to pay the costs amounting to 6s. each.
