DENBIGH.—THE LATE LIEUTENANT TWI.STON.-The officers of the 03rd (West Suffolk) Kogiment, now sta- tioned at Halifax, Nova Scotia, have caued, to be put up at their own expense in White Church, Denbigh, a tablet, ab a token of their regard and esteem for their lamented brother officer, Lieutenant Thomas Lewis Twiston, who died at Henllan Place, Denbigh, on the '24 h of August last. WELSH KIFLE CORPS IS" LONDOri.-W. G. writes to the editor of the Daily Xervs :-Sir,-It seems to have escaped the attention of the Welsh gentry that there is no rifle corps in the metropolis in connection with the natives of Wales. Considering that, at the lowest com- putation, there are about 15,000 loyal Welshmen here, who arc as capable of preptinog themselves for any emer- gency that might arise ai are the resident natives of either Scotland or Ireland, I think it is a pity some steps have not been taken to eurolo them, especially as they are of that nature that they would prefer uniting in a regiment of their own to joining any other, many hav- ing stood aloof expecting that a Welsh Rifle Corps would be formed. Surely the men who can perform such deeds as those of the Alma are also capable of de- fending their homes and their families, if properly or- ganised, by those who have the power to do so, should the dire necessity arise.—I am, &c. THE CORPORATION OFFICERS AT BALA.—In the court of Queen's Bench, January 23. Before Lord Chief Jus- tice Cockburn, and Justices Crompton and Hill.-The Queen f. Lloyd and others,Ni r W clsby moved for a rule calling upon three gentlemen, named Loyd, Jones, and Richards, to show why a quo warranto should not be exhibited against them to show by what authority they claimed to exercise the offices of mayor and bailiffs of the supposed borough of Bala, in Merionethshire. The learned counsel moved on the affidavit of Sir W. Price, a gentleman who was SO years of age, and a large land- owner near Bala, who stated that he had lived in the neighbolll hood for 58 years, and never heard of Bala be- ing a borough, or of its ever having had any corporation officers or property. It appeared however, that on the 9th of September last, they elected a mayor end two bailiffs; and those gentlemen lost no time in giving in- structions to the bellman, who had appointed himself on tho death of an old bellman, to make praclamation in Bala, both in the English and Welsh languages, that ill persons in future visiting the fair should pay toU and stallage,-Is. for a waggon, 6d for a cart, 3d for every square yard of ground occupied. This was accordingly done, and these officers liad actually levied toll and stal- lage, without any pretence of right. T;.e lsarned coun- sel said that their Lordships who had gone the Welsh Circuit were aware that Bala was a imal l place, chiefly occupied by poor people engaged iu agricultural pursuits. Lord Chief Justice Cpckburn said the court ought to have some further acquaintance with these gentlemen previous to the next circuit, and granted a rule to show cause.
