Otat and gtettict. COMMISSION SIGNED BY THE QIJEE',T.-Ist A(imill. Batt. Denbighshire R. V.âM. Conran, Esq., to be adjutant, from Sep. 23, 1870. TIME TABLES.âWe give our usual time tables this month. There are no alterations in the Great Western, but some of the trains on the Cambrian are changed. One which left Oswestry at 6 30 a.m. for Welshpool is discontinued, but still runs from Llanymynech. MURDER NEAR BRECON.âAt Llanguniedar, near Brecon on Tuesday night, January 3, a bailiff, in the employ of Mr Dobie, of Cdwych was attacked by two men, named Edwards and Prosser, who it is alleged stabbed him in the abdomen. It appears that a dispute had arisen between the two persons. The unfortunate man died in a few hours. An inquest was held on the body, and subsequently tly Edwards was committed for trial on a charge of wilful murder. Prosser was discharged. THE CAMBRIAN LINE BLOCKED. -A number of boulders rolled down from Harlech cliff on Thursday morning, pro- bably owing to the sudden thaw, and the line there was blocked for a considerable time. A man, who was kept at the spot to give warning to approaching trains in case of any slip from the rock, signalled to the 6.20 train from Pwllheli, and speed was slackened and the train stopped before arriving at the blocked part of the line. Men were speedily set to work clearing away the rubbish, and the train proceeded, arriving at Machynlleth nearly an hour behind time. The London Figaro says.â"We are glad to see that Wales is busying itself in a national undertaking of more importance, and more interest to the country generally, than its childish Eisteddfod. An influential meeting was held at Wrexham, on Tuesday evening, in furtherance of the scheme for estabslishing a university college in Wales. The Castle Hotel, at Aberystwyth, has been purchased forEI0,900, forthe purpose of the institution; and, t so soon as £ 30,000 has been raised, it is proposed to apply j to the Government for assistance. Mr Gladstone has already given the assurance of his personal sympathy with the object of the promoters of the scheme. So, Wales may soon be able to place itself on an educational level with Ire- land and with Scotland-a result which its present ec- clesiastical colleges have lamentably failed to achieve."
