PONTYPOOL. Mr. Temple Wightman, mining engineer, formerly of Pontypool, who was appointed, little more than twelve months ago, the sole manager of the vast estate of The Maxwell Land Grant and Railway Company, situated in Colerado and New Mexico, has recently been made a direc- tor of the Company. NATIONAL EDUCATION.âA public meeting, for the pur- pose of considering the provisions of the Elemetary Edu- cation Act, and of explaining the principles of the Na- tional Education League was held in Crane-street chapel, an Thursday evening, and, notwithstanding the unfavour- able state of the weather, was very numerously attended. The chair was occupied by Mr. W. Conway, who, after explaining the object of the meeting, called upon the Rev. F. Sonley Johnstone, of Merthyr, to move the first reso- lution. In an interesting and instructive speech of some length he reviewed the progress of education in this country during the past half-century, and also the various schemes that have been adopted, and clearly showed that any system of national education, to be successful and practicable, must not only be unsectarian, but purely se- cular, and under the control of local boards. The meet- ing was afterwards addressed by the Revs. T. Thomas, D.D., S. Price, G. Watson, Daniel Davies, W. M. Lewis, M.A., Mr. E. H. Davies, and others. A petition in favour of Mr. Dixon's resolutions for the amendment of the Elementary Education Act, was adopted by the meet- ing, to be signed by the chairman, and forwarded for pre- sentation to Parliament.
