Penarth Liberal Association. A public meeting, convened under the auspices of the Penarth Liberal Association, was held on Thursday night in Andrews' Hall. County Councillor W. B. Shepherd presided and was supported by Messrs E. Seagrave, District Councillor R. Guy, W- Jones Thomas Mordecai 'Meazey, J. Morris, H. Evans (Liberal hon. sec.), Price (Llancarfan), R. Hancock, T. Harris, &c. There was a fair attendance to hear the spirited address of Mr Joseph Glowes, who awelt on the marked difference between Liberalism and Toryism. In illus- trating this, the speaker quoted Lord Salisbury, who at the foundation stone ceremony of the Newport Constitutional Club said :-The Conservative party as a rule are satisfied with things as they are. The speaker-analysed this pronouncement, and by a series of elaborate, yet lucid, arguments proved that the tenets of the Tory gospel were opposed to all progress, advancement, and success in any shape or form. The meeting was addressed by others, and a vote of thanks was accorded Mr Howes, this being proposed by Councillor Guy, seconded by Mr Jone Thomas, and enthusiastically carried.

I MORRISTON V. PENARTH, I By ONE OF THE CROWD.] I The Morristonian match on Saturday was by no I means a brilliant or interesting exhibition. Of course I it was a win fcr Penarth—and a bigger win, in reality, I than the score shows, for the homesters held the upper I hand throughout the greater part of the game. But, I surely, those football enthusiasts who followed Pen- I arth last season, and who witnessed Saturday's match, I must have wished for some ot the old Parliamentary I hands, now conspicuous by their absence, for there is I no mistake about it, that the team which Penartb I could put in the field this time last year, would have I made short work with the visitors. I suppose, how- I ever, that we must console ourselves with the reflec- I tion that we can't always have them, and if we suffer I at the present time through the loss of brilliant men, I we are, as a club, by no means alone in this respect. I We should lecollect, too, when we consider the limited I population of Penarth, that it would be too much to I expect phenomenal excellence year after year. H Penarth re-arranged their third line on Saturday, I though how it will work out remains to be seen. Eli I Kirby and Heywood took the wing places, and Jack H Jones and Herby Morgan the centre. Eli made a H very favourable impression on Saturday; and certainly ■ no one can accuse him of want of pluck. That would, ■ indeed, in his case, be a most exasperating insult ■ —But Eli must exercise a little care, or in his ■ attempts to jump over men's heads, he may suddenly ■ terminate his career, like his scriptural namesake. ■ Never mind! He bad very hard lines on one or two ■ occasions in not scoring, and altogether, be gave pro- H mise of success. H The play at half on the part of Prole and George H Shepherd, has been very much talked about and H vaunted up to the skies but without wishing to detract from the merits of the two men in question —-both, players of Stirling ability-no one knows better than they do, that oa Saturday last, their play was, in reality, but a poor exhibition of what they iave done, and what they can do. Prole wag-not icariy so successful as usual in his working of the crimmag'c. He did no get the ball away anything z, I cl ke so often as one could wish. Partly, of course, via wap the hult of the Penarth forwards in not heel-1 ing out; but taking everything into consideration, and giving honour to whom honour i& due, Jere Edwards proved himself to be much smarter in some things. A very noticeable feature in the half back play was the number of times the home halves made off with the ball on their own account. Surely a little variation in tactics in the way of throwing straight out to the three-quarters would have a good effect. As it was, on Saturday, the the Morristonian halves seemed to tumble very easily to the play of the Penarth halves, and checkmated them many times. Let us hope that in the Llanelly match, the play behind the scrum will not be char- acterised by monotonous machine work of this kind and then the three-quater line will have more work to do. Of course, it is a splendid thing for the halves to go in for the five three game now and then, but to go in for it always, and always in the same way. is of precious little service. The Penarth forwards went to their work with a will, and anyone would think from the way they commenced business, that they were going to cart their opponents about the-field. They did not keep this up, but on the whole their play was good with the exception of a want of heeling out. Taking them as a whole, they are a smart lot. It is a great pity they are lacking iu avoirdupois. I Oid Stager, in writing of the match, says:— Penarth, who appear to have been unfortunate with regard to their players, managed to defeat a strong p 0 Morriston 15 by eight points to four Eli Kirby, a member of a family which seems to be always repre- sented in a local team, was given a trial on the wing, and his brother Charlie very creditably occupied the position of custodian. A couple of good forwards are still required to bring the team on an equality with some of the chief clubs they have to meet"
THE LLANELLY MKTCLI. To-morrow, Saturday,;will be a veritable red letter day for Penarth if they succeed in beating Llanelly The Ci Boys," as they are called, have been going it strong lately. They have played eight matches and won the eight, and if Penarth only succeed in breaking their record, they will do what Llanelly did for Penarth last year. We may depend upon it, the Penarthians will play up-when they have a big thing to bring off, they often rise to the occcasion.

Hen Pareezer at Andrews Hall. During the week Herr Pareezer with his magnifi- cent dirorama and Prussian Choir, has been giving a series of entertainments in Andrews7 Hall. These, however, have not met with the patronage they have deserved, the attendances being somewhat small. The first part of each evening has been devoted to vocal and instrumental music. Some of the young ladies possess very fine voices, and sing the pieces allotted to them with much taste and feeling, Sacred, sentimental and comic songa have been rendered, but none have been more popular than Rock of Ages," pictorially illustrated. This has been rendered nightly by special request, and though it may be repeated a hundred times none would grow weary of the song- or the view* s. Would that there were more such pieces included in the programme. The conjuring tricks were cleverly performed, and elicited hearty applause. Each night there has been shown a splendid variety of views of the principal places in various countries. On Thursday. Wales was illus- trated, and amongst the views placed upon the can- vas was that of the hotel at Pwlhelii, erected at a cost of about seven thousand pounds by Mr Soloman Andrews. This is a magnificent place, and has about 70 bedrooms. The executants of the harp, mandoline and violin solos deserve special commendation. To take the entertainments through and through they are thoroughly enjoyable and deserve hearty support. On Sunday afternoon, Herr Pareezer will give a sacred concert in Andrews' lesser hall, and on Sunday evening in the large hall.
(ihurcli of England Temperance Society. SUCCESSFUL CONCERT, This took place last evening, at the National School, when the room was crowded. Mr J. H. Jones presided. The pianoforte and violin duetts by the Misses Wilson were admirably rendered and greatly appreciated, as were also the banjo and pianoforte duetts by Miss Weicherd and Messrs Harry and Weicherd. fdrs Llewelyn Evans was in good voice, and greatly delighted the audience. Our good friend Mr Dalziel sang in fine style. Mrs Adey's recitations were rendered with great power and effect. Mr Frank Selby's comic songs took well. Miss Newton proved a very efficient accompanist. The programme was kindly got up by Miss Dubautoy and the Misses Newton, who not only disposed of all the tickets, but also otherwise worked hard, and it is to their exertions the success of the concert is entirely due. A few words from Mr Jennings terminated the proceeding.
