BRECON- YOUNG MEN'S MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY. -On Tuesday evening last the' members of this society gave a musical and literary enter- tainment, in the Town Hall, on behalf of the sufferers by the Oaks Colliery Explosion, Barns Icy. The hall was well filled, and as the performers were all amateurs, criticism would be out of our province, we may however add that the whole entertainment passed off with very considerable kclat. We understand that there will be a surplus of about £ 20 towards the fund appropriated to the unfortunate suffers. THE WEATHER.—The thaw came as suddenly as came the frost and snow, and occasioned almost as much inconvenience. Speaking of the condition of Edinburgh alter a thaw, Sidney Smith was wont to say that except the morning after the Flood was over he doubted if ever it was dirtier. A similar description would apply to most towns—to our own among the rest though from all accounts London fares worst, the highways and byeways there being encumbered with a plentiful moisture." The wind which followed the change of temperature has, we regret to learn, wrought sad damage-to shipping, and has occasioned great loss of life. 0 A'mong the many disasters to be ascribed to the late storm is the destruction of Croydon Church by fire on Saturday evening. Owing to the bad state, of the roads, caused by the snowfall, the London engines were unable to render assistance, and the local brigades were not equal to the task of sub- duing the flames. The railway trains, in many parts, have been detained for several hours.
