The Rev. D. M. Evans, a well known Baptist minister of Llanelly, died at Lausanne last week. At the next Cheshire Quarter Sessions the Chairman is to move that magistrates' clerks be paid by salaries instead of fees. At Spurston, Cheshire, the other day, a man tried to commit suicide by cutting his throat with a billhook He almost succeeded, and inflicted a frightful wound. At Neath, Glamorganshire, a publican named Rees Rees has been committed for trial for perjury for bringing a fals3 charge of poaching against a policeman. The magistrates refused to take bail. The Chester Guardians are making another attempt to effect an amalgamation with Hawarden and Great Boughton Unions, and, in the interests of justice, it is to be hoped that they will succeed. Thieves broke into the house of Mr Griffiths, of Garn, one night last week, and stole S75 in money, as well as old coins worth about;C200. A dealer from Denbigh, named John Thomas, has been found offering old coins for sale at Chester, and taken into custody. A man named David Roberts has been charged at Mold with committing perjnry in a game case, by stating that he saw the accused on the land in question, when it was alleged he Was at the bottom of a mine at the time. Roberts is-remanded. It has been decided, at a meeting of the members, that hencefor^ ard free admission shall be granted to the Den- bigh Reading Room, which will be supported, we presume, by the subscriptions of honorary members and the profits of entertainments. This is not wise, we think. The way in which money brings misery has been exem- plified at Chester. Some time ago a miller in the employ of the Messrs Frost, named Aston, had a legacy left to him, with which he purchased some property and began business. He became involved in pecuniary difficulties, his mind was upset, and last week he hung himself. A man dressed as a Roman Catholic priest has been Soliciting and obtaining-charity from clergymen and others -in Denbighshire. He was arrested at last on a charge of vagrancy, but the magistrates dismissed him with an ad- monition, and one, Father M'Sweeney, paid his fare to Ireland. The Roman Cathelic hierarchy of England havemigrated to Rome. According to the Weekly Register, the Bishop of Shrewsbury left this week for the Council of the Vati- can. There is, therefore, but one prelate left in this country, namely, the Bishop of Mcnevia and Newport, whose health "and age has hindered him from going to Rome. Another serious accident from the incautious use of fire- arms by one of those silly persons who delight in frighten- ing people is recorded from near Crewe. There was a party at Chvrch Coppenhall, and a yoting man named William Yardlev pointed a spring gun at a newly-married woman, ntfraed Hawksworth, who is near her confinement. The gun went off, and the woman was so badly wounded that heryeeovery was despaired of. A writer in a contemporary recently argued that the Welsh, ^eing a nation of dissenters, had little or no in- terest in the appointment of bishops. A correspondent, however, replies to this 'by a clinching argumentâthe bishops, he says, are the representatives of Wales in the House ef Lords. It is, '&f course, plain enough that as long as the State allows the chief ministers of one of the national churches to sit in Parliament, the whole Welsh nation has a very decided interest in the appointments. An inquest was held at the Alyn Bridge Hotel, Rossett, on Thursday, before B. H. Thelwall, Esq., upon the body of John Edwards, a wheelwright, aged 69 years. The de- ceased had worked for Mr Hughes, of Apothecaries Hall, Racre, and on being discharged told Mr Hughes that he would do away with himself, as he could not do without food. On Tuesday toe was seen by Mrs Mercer, of the Broad Oak Crossing Gate, sitting on a stile on the side of the line about 150 yards from the gate, and a mile from Rossett station. On the approach of the train, which left the station for Chester et'1.58 p.m., he laid his hat on the ground and placed his stick against the stile. As the train neared him he deliberately placed his 'head on the rail opposite the stile, <andit'was struck first by what is called the "life-guard," and then dragged under the wheels. His head was of course smashed, both arms were taken off at the shoulder and broken up, the right leg was cut off at the hip, and the left foot was severed. On Friday, as the five o'clock p:m. express train from London was on its way to Liverpool, it was signalled to stop just after it had passed Crewe. Some apprehension was excited, Tsut few persons in the train were informed how nearly a terrible-accident had been averted. It ap- pears that a man employed by the railway company, walking along the line about the time when the train was due, stumbled and fell over something which lay across the rails. To his horror he found the obstruction to be a large piece of iron rail-too heavy for one man to lift. The man hastened to an adjacent signal station, and caused the danger signal to be exhibited. Arrangements were then made for ther era oval of the rail, which, it is feared, must have been purpasely placed there, though the guilt of such an 'act, especially when united in by accomplices, is almost toe horrible for conception. Amongst the pas- sengers who thus narrowly escaped-a terrific peril was Mr Barry Sullivan, on his way to fulfil his engagement in Liverpool.
