RUTHIN is a prettily situated place in the lovely vale of Clwyd. It possesses a capital Court-house, a good gaol, a workhouse,and a Corporation. It is the seat of the Lord Lieutenant of the county of Denbigh, and has the assizes, to which judges, barristers, and lawyers do resort, held in its halls. It is fair and beautiful to the eye, not un- pleasant to the nose, and generally healthy. But like other places it has its faults, and one of theseâon the authority of one of its own aldermen, and a medical manâis laziness Who likes to be called lazy I Yet such is the complaint, and there are one or two symptoms of the complaint. Some few "Mayors" back (not to be too ac curate) the town was drained, and it is necessary that all the houses in the borough should be connected with these drains, and that does not seem a difficult thing to do. But alas where are they ? No plans of the drains can be found available, and so, when a householder wishes to connect his system with the mains, lie must dig for it until he finds it, or be guided by the un- certain memory of some official who is not too lazy to tell him. But this is not allâ its new Town Hall, built a few Mayors" back, is in a bad condition so bad that the present Mayor declares it would have been about their heads but for him But on what authority does lie interfere in the matter, has he a legal right to do so Well: his own words are We have no evidence that we have even a Charter These lazy people have lost the evidence of their own existence. But there is com- j i fort in store-they have a School Board, and we may hope that the rising race will be improved, and rendered more intel- ligent, active, and energetic. Alas, their energetic fathers have allowed this useful j institution to die a natural death, all for want of the nourishment of a notice or two which should have been issued from the industrious Town Council. Thus, Ruthin is reduced to poverty. It is without plans of the drains, evidences of a charter, and a School Board all for want of energy and industry, or, as one of its best friends says, on account of its laziness Perhaps if the good alderman would look again he might find another cause in operation as well as the one he specifies.
