Thirteen choirs from Chester, Dolgelley, Cefn- mawr, Acrefair, Carnarvon, Cileain and Manoott (Hawarden) will take part in the fourth annual Christmas Eisteddfod on Monday next at Chester. The latest name associated with the vacant living of Doleelley is that of the Rev. Llewelyn Hughes, B.A., of Portmadoc. No appointment haf, however, been made, although the candi- dates are siid to be as plentiful as blackberries in the autumn. They mean to celebrate Christmas on board the Clio Tralninsr Ship in eood old tvle. The vessel will he decorated, and the boys have arranged to srive a dramatic entertainment on Monday afternoon after enjoying their roast beef and plumpudllinll. Anent Sir Llewelvn Turner's letter in the last i-sue of the North Waltl ChrtnioU we make the following extract from Mr Josiah Hughes's work, Australia Revisited â 11 After breakfast I walked down to the wafer aide, and waa astonished at the extent of land reclaimed from the sea, by depositing the silt got up by the dredging operations in the channel between Dnnedin and Port Chalmers. To those who are acquainted with the City of Bangor the work here done can be easily understood. Suppose a (tone sea wall constructed from the extremitv of Garth Point to the extremity of Port Penrhyn Quays; suppose also a veries of powerful etsam oranee with long projecting arms and wlf opeoins nctvitorg loottsd alnnll the Hlrael mad flit, and a ceries of barile trafficking between these and the powerful steam dredges in the channel. The silt is lifted from the bargea by the cranes and depo- sited behind the sea wall, there to form -pl-nAlA land on which great foundries and manufactories bave been ereoted, together with wharves, docks, eheds, warehouses, Ac., transforming a miasmatic nuisance into a valuible municipal estate. Wh- ever I went to day I was reminded of the beautiful surroundings of Bangor. I went up to the elevated suburb of Moruington by the cable t,amway, I I gradient steeper than would be rrquiied in a straight oonrae to reach the top of Bangor Moun- tain. From this elevation the illusion "a" most complete. Looking over the town which lay to the hollow the duplicate of Upper Bangor was seen, with the M-nai Straits and Anglesev b-yord; on my "IlWt WAil Hirael and its mnddy flat, being transformed into the bnaieat part of the city. on which the railway station was situated convenient for the stiipoing and the town to my left was thA Bangor Valley aa it extends to Qlanadda And Car- narvon. Port Chalmers also ia represented bv the town of Carnarvon, only that at Port Chalmers there are no shiftiog sand banks and treacherous shallows, hnt a tI"bll!1 breakwater and plenty of depth. The resemblanee between these two eities and their anrroondings is o,v remarkable, the only difference being that Dunedin is on a much larger scale, the straits and vslleys are wider, tbe hills are higher, the streets, publio btildiogs, squares, gar dans, warehouses, and bnsiiefg pre- mises are more numerous and Importsat. Never- theless, the similarity remains, and t'icee not acquainted with Banger will pardon tl S local oompaneou."
