VOLUNTARY RELîEF FOR THE POOR OF ABERYSTWYTH. The subscription list which we published last week, which amounted then to jEI08 odd, has been the means of relievingâsaving perhaps the lives of many familiesâold persons, unemployed, poor helpless women and tender children. God bless those who gave and those who yet will give in such a cause. On Saturday the committee and their secretary (Dr. C. Rice Williams), sat in the Temperance Hall, to distribute tickets for relief to the poor applicants. The Rev. E. O. Phillips. the vicar of the parish, pre- sided, and was assisted by Richard Roberts, Esq., mayor, the Rev. Mr. Griffiths, Rev. John M. Morrill, Rev. 0. Davies, Rev. John Jones, Mr. Hugh Davies, Mr. John Williams, Mr. Philip Williams, Mr. J. P. Jones, Mr. John Watkins, Mr. Richard Morris, and other active members of the committee. At an early hour on Saturday morning, notwith- standing the extreme severity of the weather, the space in front of the Temperance Hall was crowded with shivering poor creatures in scanty rags and pallid looks, the ghastly emblems of poverty and disease. When the doors were opened the hall was almost immediately filled, and the good but hard work of the committee commenced, and continued for the space of six hours. During that time 391 families were relieved by tickets issued for bread, flour, meat, and coals. Since then 89 families have been relieved from the same fundâmaking up to the present a total of 480 families, which, at a rough calculation of an average of three members to each family, makes the total number of individuals re- lieved 1,440. And in. a town the population of which at the taking of the jiasjt census, was 5,641, or something like one in four of the whole of the inha- bitants of the boroughTfyis surely is a pitiable state of affairs, and ought it not to be the most elo- quent of appeals to those blessed with the world's wealth in our neighbourhood to come forward freely and at once to ameliorate the sufferings of their starving fejiowecreatures? We hope next week to be able to publish a-full list of additional subscribers, and to find in that Jist the names of all those who have not given, and who have"the'means tb give. Subscriptions may b £ sent in to the Rev. E. Owen Phillips, chairinpA, Richard* Rbbertsj Esc| mayor, C. Rice tymiagijs, Esq, M.D-y or ony other member of the committee;
