THE NEW PAPER. To the Editor of tho Pontypridd Chronicle. SIR,-It affords the greatest pleasure to under- stand that you have had the courage to start a new paper in our town. This gives me the hope that we shall be in possession of an organ which will truly represent the views and feelings of the town and neighbourhood with candour and impartiality. Your known character and probity are a sufficient guarantee for the expectation that we shall have a paper entirely free from personalities and gratuitous inuendoes, just and impartial in its comments on passing events, and fair and nnfiinchingin its advo oncy of what is pure and true. The want of such g mdium for the free interchange of views and api. nions has been long felt, und many of the inhabi- tants will feel that you have placed them under great obligation to you by your enterprise, and wish you every success in the important undertaking. Many subjects in these days require thorough venti. lation, many matters in the social and political world push themselves to the front for settlement, many changes are likely to be effected soon in Church and State, and the public ought to be thoroughly enlightened on these points. No doubt there are local matters which will be none the worse if they were submitted to a little fair criticism. Under your management I feel confident that all theee matters will have a fair field and no favour in your pap.;r. Allow me, before closing, to make a few sugges- tions as to the mode of conducting the paper so as to secure usefulness and success. Let it contain a faithful record of all the passing events in politics, society and religion, worthy of being reoorded. Ex. clude from its piges all scurrility, backbiting, and elijjhting remarks on efforts to do good, however humble they may be. Give the same prominence to the labours of the weakest of the tribes of Israel to promote virtue and the improvement of society as to the efforts of those who possess a higher social status. Allow all parties to (fire~tt«e exftreaslpn to their views and opinions in your pages; and flhoald any controversy arise, make it a condition, from which you will not swerve, that all disenssions must be short, fair, to the poiut, courteous, and entirely frl e from all vulgarities and personalities. If yon will pursue this course without flinching, as I have no doubt you will, your paper will be a valuable so- quisition to the town and neighbourhood, and can- not f.il to prove a blessing, most of your follow- townsmen will rejoioe in the project, the CXroniele will meet with a cheerful welcome at their firesides, and success will follow the undertaking. This, I fissure you, is the earnest wish and confident expeo. tation of Yours very sincerely, E. ROBERTS. Pentrebaoh, Jan. 10th, 1881.
