FOURTEENTH GLAMORGAN VOLUNTEERS.—AP- POINTMENT OF OFFICERS,—Our readers are aware that a vacancy for the position of first and se- cond lieutenants has existed for some time past, and that the appointment of the same was post- poned until the return of the rifles. On Wednes- day last, the first drill of the season was hi Id at the Ynys Field, which was placed at the disposal of the corps through the kindness of Capt. Fo- t h" rgill, when a good muster of the corps took place. Messrs F. Howells, and T. Phillips, were appointed as first and second lieutenants respectively. We understand that Capt. Fother- gill has presented to the corps a valuable chal- lenge cup, which will be shot for monthly by the corps. Cape. Powell,who, as our readers are pro- bably aware, has recently received the ap- pointment of major, leaves the corps with the handsome balance of over £200 in hand. IXQUEST. — An inquest was held on Saturday, before the Deputy.Coroner, on the body of John Morris, collier, aged 13, who was killed on the 18th instant by a fall of roof whilst working in a stall with his father at the Tunnel Pit, Abernant. Verdict" Accidental death." THEFT FROM A SHOP DOOB.—At the Merthyr Polic-court, on Monday, betore Mr A. de Rutzen, David James was charged with stealing a coat, value 249., the property of Messrs Pugh and Son, outfitters, Commercial-street. It appeared from the evidence of MislI Margaret Griffiths assistant at Messrs Pugh's, that the coat was hung outside the door on Saturday morning, and at 10 p.m. it was gone. She had seen it safe about half-past 8. John Kirby, assistant to MrFretdman, pawn- broker, deposed that prisoner offered the coat in pledge shortly after 11 on Saturday night. Sus- pecting it was stolen, witness sent for a policeman. It was subsequently discovered that the coat had been stoln from Messrs Pugh's shop. Prisoner was committed for trial. ASSAULT.—John Davies was charged with as- saulting and Morgan Davies,his Brother,with re- sisting P.C. G. Williams, in the execution of bis duty. Mr Beddoe defended the prisoners. Com- plainant's evidence went to show that on Saturday night he arrested John for disorderly conduct at Cwmbach, and Morgan, under the pretence of assisting him to keep John quiet, incited the crowd to throw stones, and attempt to rescue the prisoner. After occupying the attention of the Court for three hours the case was adjourned. "THE GRAPHIC."—We understand that The Graphic was most strongly represented on the occasion of the Shah's arrival at Dover. Captain W. W. May, member of the Institute of Painters in Water-Colour, was on board the Lively, and Mr Sydney Hall on the Vivid, both taking ad- mirable sketches of the principal events from Ostend to Dover. The Persian officers were very much interested in the sketches. "Very Good, said one general, in looking over Mr Sydney Hall's sketch-book. I recognise those figures; if you will lend me your sketch-book, I will write the proper names to each one." One old gentle- man ventured to expostulate with Mr Sydney Hall, and complain that he was the only one who had not been drawn. Mr C. G. Johnson, whose picture in the Academy this year, An Autumn FJood," has attracted so much notice, took his position on board the Hercules, and has made a most successful drawing of the meeting in mid- channel. Mr E. Slocombe represented The Graphic at Dover, and has for his subject The First Step on British Soil." Mr H. W. Brewer took the necessary sketches of the actual meeting between Her Majesty and the Shah at Windsor, and in this he was mueh assisted by the kindness of Mr Chevalier, who was engaged by the Queen to make sketches of this important historical event. Mr G Durand was at the Guildhall, and will be busy in conjunction with M. Marie in depicting the review of troops at Windsor whilst Mr W. Small, of the Institute, Mr Sydney Hall, and Mr Hayes, R.H.S.A., will represent The Graphic at the Naval Review at Spithead. All these gentlemen, with many others less known to fame, and engravers of equal reputation, are doing their utmost on this special occasion to sustain the reputation which English artists have fairly won as being the best illustrators in the world. BREACH OF CONTRACT. — At the Merthyr Police Court, on Saturday, before Mr A. de Rutzen, William Hopkins, fitter, employed at the Abernant Works, was charged with absent- ing himself from the service of his employers without reasonable or lawful excuse. Mr Plews appeared for the prosecution. By the evidenoe it appeared that on the toth, prisoner came to his work and went away before his turn was out, thus oausing the loss of a quantity of iron. The amount of compensation oiaiuied, 25s, was or- dered to be p'tid, with costs. IRoN AND STEEL INSTITUTE.—The members of the Iron and Steel Institue are about to pay a visit to the Belgian iron district. The meetings will mainly centre at Liege, and the proceedings will commence on August the .18th, when the Mayor of Liege will officially receive the Insti- tute at the Hotel de Ville, after which addresses will be delivered in the University Hall by the president of the Institute, and by the chairman of the Belgian Reception Committee. The morn- ings of Tuesday, Wednesday, and probably of Thursday will be devoted to the reading and discussion of papers, which will, as far as prac- ticable, be printed previous to the meeting in French and English. The list of papers at pre- sent includes the following:- Description of the geological features of the coal and iron bearing strata of Belgium the development of the Bel- gian iron trade since 1830; the method of mak- ing ookc in Belgium the iron ores of the Lux- emburg District; Buttgenback's system of con- structing blast furnaces the dimensions recently adapted for blast furnaces; machinery for Bes- semer plant; the Diamond Rock Borer, &c. Facilities will be afforded for the exhibition of models, specimens, &c. The principal ironworks in the locality will be visited. On Tuesday evening, the members will be entertained at a banquet by the representatives of the iron and allied trades of the district. Friday will be de- voted to au inspection of the Charieroi works. As a proof of the interest which now attaches to the proceedings of the Institute, it is stated that a formal invitation has be n received from an influential body in the United States, for the Institute to visit America during 1874. — The Mining World. PROFIT IN THE COAL AND IRON TRADES.— An example of the enormous profits that are being made by tbe ironmasters is furnished by the statement that the SheepbrMge Iron and Coal Company, near Sheffield, are about to present each proprietor of uo original share wfth a fully paid-up new £ 10 share, besides paying a dividend Tn.aaUt Per ceut- 011 the ordinary shares. 1 e otaveley Coal and Iron Company have done the same to their shareholders.—Mining World. PROPOSAL TO INCORP^RATK THE TOWN OF .VlERTHJTR. A large ana influential meeting of the inhabitants convened by Mr J. Plews, High Constable, was held on Tuesday night at the Bush Hotel, for purpose of taking into consideration the best steps for securing a charter for the In- corporation of M'rthyr. Therwere between 60 and 70 of the principal ratepayers present. The High Constable, \V 110 presided, opened the pro- ceedings by explaining the object for which they had assembled, and poiuted out the disadvantages under wiiich the lown labouri-d for want of a cor- porate b .dy. He was followed bj Messrs Smyth, Shapton, and Peh-f Williams, all of w4QW pup- ported the views enunciated by the Chairman, as n did fiso Dr. James, but the latter laid great t] stress upon the importance of proving to the 1 people that-ibe proposed change would involve b no extra expenditure. Messrs. W. Gonld fond n Mathew John opposed the scheme on the ground s that not only would the change involve extra I y t, expense, but the power of expending the public b money would be vested solely in the Council, t independent of the people at large, and thereby v great extravagance might be entailed. Ultimate- n ly a committee was appointed to make arrange- v ments for a public meeting. f A NARROW ESCAPE.-On Monday morning a t child in a perambulator had a narrow escape from t destruction. A horse drawing a load of hay, by p 0 y some means, escaped from the shafts of the cart IE and dashed off in the direction of Cwmbach. By f the Trap it encountered a perambulator with a s child in it, and before the girl in care of it could a get it away, the horse struck it with such force as « to destroy it. The child fortunately escaped with E a shaking. A boy in the cart was also thrown, 1 and wr.s rumoured to be dead, but happily he was t als* unhurt. < MOUNTAIN ASH. ( THE WORKMEN AND HOUSE ACCOMMODATION. -On Monday evening, at the Workman's Hall, an adjounrned meeting to consider the house ac- 1 commodation in this district was held under the < preside ncy of Mr William Jones. After a few remarks from the chairman, Mr David Morgan, in course of a lengthy speech, explained the ( object that his fellow working men had in view, < by establishing a building society in Mountain 1 Ash. This movement was not promoted in an i antagonistic spirit agiinst the owners of house < property in the district, but simply in conse- 1 quence of their having advanced the rent of work- men's dwellings to an unreasonable extent. He had ascertained since the last meeting, that more house accommodation was much rt quired at Mountain Ash, for it often happened now that two parties occupied the same cottage, a practice which he could not approve of, especially when epidemics were raging in the country. Surely the miner after having been delving hard under- ground in heated and vitiated air all day, required a comfortable house to rest himself in after his labour. He would not, however, advise them to erect expensive dwellings, but they should pay special attention, when building to the require- ments of the miners. A room should be set apart, in every collier's dwelling, where he could do his ablutions from the family's view. The speaker said he had no great confidence in those building societies which had been established in the country, for it often occurred that after bor- rowing a certain amount of money from those societies, between the heavy interest paid on it and the long terms enacted to refund the same, the cream was taken off the transaction. What he would recommend to be done in Mountain Ash was to form a building society among themselves, and hand into the fund j £ l per month. They need not rush on too fast, but feel their ground well as they were going along. (Cheers,)Mr D. H. Wil- liams and Mr David Thomas having addressed the meeting in forcible speeailves in favour of the movement, a resolution, embracing the suggestions thrown out by Mr David Morgan, was carried nem con., and a committee formed to carry out the project. A vote of thanks to the chairman brought the proceedings te a close.

His worship remarked that the defendant ap- peared incorrigible, this being his third appearance within a month. Only last week he was fined 10s. and costs. The Bench were informed that he was a steady man when sober, but like a madman when drunk. The best thing would be for him to refrain from drink altogether. They could not fine him less than 15s. and hoped he would not come again.—Thomas James was charged with being drunk and riotous in Bwllfa-road, on the 14th inst. P.C. Canter proved seeing him drunk and knocking at people's doors, and afterwards wanted to fight. Witness took him horn". Fined 10s. and costs.

Whitney saw them at 3 o'clock in the afternoon very drunk and challeng- ing to fight. He afterwards noticed them running after every young woman they saw in the road.

Six weeks ago one of the defendants was up before and fined £ l and costs, and here he was again They were each fined £ 2 and costs or a month in default.—Mor- gan Edmunds was charged with a similar offence on the 16th Inst. P.C. Edmunds saw him at ten minutes to 12 o'clock on the night in question, drunk and challenging to fight, stating that he was the best man in the Aberdare valley for seven score weight."

Rodman saw him at half-past II o'clock at night, drunk and wanting to fight with another man. Defendant taid the man rubbed his fist in his teeth and called him a turncoat. He thought the sergeant should have summoned the other man instead of him. Fined 10s. and costs, or seven days. V AGRANTs,-Enoch Davies and Thomas Ken- fin, two dirty-looking men, were brought up charged with wandering abroad and sleeping in an unoccupied building, and not being able to give a satisfactory account of themselves. P.C. Parry stated that about a quarter to 12 o'clock, on Monday night, he found Rentio lying down asleep by a stove near the feeder at Abernant Works. He asked prisoner how he got there, and he replied that he bad got no money, and was going back to Ebbw Vale, having only just oome from there. Directly after he found Davies in a lodge, near the pumping engine in the yard, lying down fast asleep, with his boots off. He also stated that he had no money to pay for his lodgings, and that he thought it no harm to lie down in that place. There were great complaints made concerning tramps who went about the works at night, and stole the men's victuals, and then went off on the next morning. A short time since a man was very badly burnt through lying about, and he had to be taken to his lodgings in a conveyance. Defendants eaid they had no other place to go to, aud if the Bench would only let them off this time they weuld not trouble them again. The Bench said there was no ex cuse for wandering about in search of work, as work was nuw so plentifiul, but as the defendants had expressed their sorrow they would be dis- Criarg d. TRESPASS.—Thomas Howells was charged with committing damage to grass, the property of Mr Thomas H. Jones, brewer, Aieraman. P.C. Ed- munds proved seeing the defendant, on Sunday, the 15th. inst., lying down in a grass fi.Id, the property of Mr Jones. The damage was.laid at Id. Defendant had nothing to say in defence. He was ordered to pay Id. compensation, la. fine, and costs, amounting altogether to 9s. lOd. ALLEGED SALE OF BEEIL DURING ILLEGAL HOURS.—William Buckle, landlord of the Rail. way Inn, Cemetery-road, was charged with keep- ing his house open for the sale of beer between half-past 2 and 6 o'clock, on Sunday afternoon, the 15th inst. P.C. Canter stated that he called at defendant's house at half past 4 o'clock^on the afternoon in question, and found two men there with three pints of beer on the table, two of the pints being full and the other three parts full. The landlord who was also preseut, said the men in the house were friends of his that he asked them in and thought it no harm. They were both (iood Templars. Mr Supt. Thomas stated that he had made enquiries and found that the men were Good Templars as alleged. In defence II the landlord stated that he asked Mr Griffith Lewis, weigher,Bwllfa, and his friend to come in, both of whom were Good Templars, and they had no drink. The pints had not been cleared since stop-tap time Griffith Lewis was then called. He stated that he had had the misfortune to lose both legs through an accident on the railway. On the Sunday in question he failed to get a con- veyance to take him home, having about three 1 miles to go. The defendant invited him in.) There were three or four pints on the table, and the de- fendant said he would get the servant to clear them. He (witneas) would defy any one to say that be drank a drop of beer theie. The other person came to assist him home. In reply to Mr Supt. Thomas, he said he had been a Good Tempar for six weeks. The servant girl was also called and stated that the beer had been left on the table since stop-tap time, and she neglected to clear it away. The Bench considered there was sufficient evidence to enable them to dismiss the summons. The landlord was advised not to leave pints con- taining bear about the table in future during closing time. BREACH OF CONTRACT.—Andrew Berry was charged with absenting himself from his employ- ment at Messrs Nixon and Co's colliery, Moun- tain Ash, without giving the requisite notice. Mr Linton (Linton and Williams), prosecuted. William Bevan, under-viewer at the Deep Duffryn Colliery, deposed that the defendant was em- ployed as a collier. The rules required a month's notice on either side. On the 9th-inst. defendant came to him and said he wanted to go to Cornwall to see bis friends, as he had not seen them for years. Mr Brown, the manager, came up during the conversation. Leave of absence was granted. On Thursday following they found that defendant was working at Mr Glasbrook's new pits lower down the valley. Mr George Brown, manager, stated that he came up during the conversation between the defendant and last witness. Defend- and said he wanted to go and see bis friends, whom he had not seen for three years, and added that very likely a brother would return with him. He accordingly gave consent and defendant left the pit. On the following Thursday, he found that defendant was at work at Mr Glaabrook's new pit. Defendant had given no notice. Up till then defendant had lost fourteen days' work during the month, which, calculated at three tons a day, amounted to 42 tons. A shilling per ton compensation was demanded. His Worship said this was not only a breach of contract, but a gross piece of ingratitude on the part of the defendant. Mr Brown very kindly granted have of absence, which he was nut bound to do; and defendant, instead of going to see his friends, went to an adjoining pit and got work. As he had said be- fore, the amount of compensation asked was absurdly small, compared with the loss sustained; and he had nor the slighest hesitation in awarding that amount, and costs. WOUNDING -Howell Lewis was charged with wounding David Owen. Mr Phillips, on behalf of prosecutor, stated that the parties had come to an amicable settlement, and with tbe consent of the Bench the charge would not be pressed. Dr Sloper having explained the nature of the injuries, the case was dismissed. AFFILIATION. — Thomas Hewells was charged with being the father of the illegitimate child of Jane Thomas. Complainant stated that she was single, and lived in Navigation-road, Mountain Ash. The child was born on the 26th October, 1871, defendant being the father. The paternity was admitted, and an order for 28 6d a week was made from date of summons. ASSAULTS. William Davies, David Davies, and Jane Davies, were charged with assaulting Mary Morgan. Mr Phillips appeared for the .prosecution, and Mr Plews for the defence. The case, which occupied some time in the hearing, was a very trumpery one, and there was also a cross summons against Mary Morgans, both of which were dismissed.
ABERDABE LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. The usual fortnightly meeting of the Board was held at the Board-room, Old|Town-hall, on Thursday, when the following mem bers were pre- sent.— R. H. Rhys, Esq, (hairman Bev Dr Prioe, Messrs J. W. Jones, W. Thomas, W. J. Thomas, W. Davies, D. Davies, and Leyshon Rhys. The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed. ASSISTANT INSPECTOR'S REPORT. The Assistant Inspector reported 14 fresh case of small pox during the past fortnight, being a decrease of six as compared with the previous fortnight; and 3 deaths, being a decrease of 3. GADLYS-ROAD DEVIATION. A letter was read from Messrs, J dmes, solicitors, stating that the owners of the two cottages in Gadlys-road declined to accept the sum of £50 offered by the Board as compensation for the damage caused by the deviation of the road. The matter would therefore have to be settled by ar- bitration, and Mr W. Parry James, of Cardiff, was nominated as arbitrator on behalf of the owners. The Chairman proposed that Mr W. T. Lewis, of the Maerdy, be arbitrator on the part of the Board, which was agreed to. IMPKOVEMKNT OF HLGFF-STBBET. The Clerk read the agreement entered into be- tween the Chairman and Mr Edwards, Vedwhir, for the purchase of 13i square yards of land in High-street, including a portion of the Farmers Arms public-bouse, for the sum of £100, with a view to the widening of the said street. On the motion of Dr. Prioe, A resolution was passed approving of the same. SMALL POX HOSPITAL. A communication was read from Dr Siaion, of the Looal Government Board, authorising the Board to borrow JH1000 for the completion of the small pox hospital, subject to certain alterations being carried out. Mr W. J. Thomas: Is that the result of the discussion at the Board of Guardians on Satur- day? The Chairman repli d in the affirmative, and suggested that the Clerk should write to the Alliance Assuranoe Office, with respect to bor- rowing the money. Mr David Davies enquired how soon the hos- pital would be ready. The Chairman feared if they left it in the hands of the committee it would take some time. The building had been erected for twelve months but the boundary wall was not yet completed. It was arranged that the building should be completed without further delay. THB OLrI TOWN HALL. The attention of the Board having been oalled to the dilapidated state of the roof, &c., of the Board offices, the Surveyor was directed to report up nth e cost of putting the building into repair, THE PUBLIC PARK. The Clerk stated that no tender had been re- ceived for the Park grass. The Surveyor was ordeyed to get the grass removed and afterwards sold for what it would fetch. Dr. Price remarked that while speaking of the Park, the Committee of the South Wales Choral Union had a matter under discussion which he should have been loath to bring before the Board had it not been suggested in the newspapers, viz.. that the Board should grant the use of the Public Park, for one day for holding a rehearsal previous to the choir proceeding to London. The choir alone numbered 500, exlusive of the Cyfarthfa Band, so that there was no building in the town sufficiently large to contain the number of people that might be espected to attend. He knew he was asking something unusual; but it was an unusual affair altogether. The Choral Union had done much in brmgmg choral singing into note and deserved every support. The in- terest felt in the choir was so great that he thought the Board might go out of their way by granting them permission to use the Park that one day. The Chairman stated that the Board had power to close the Park any number of days in the year for doing some special work in the Park, but what be feared was that if the Board gave consent on the present occasion, they could hardly refuse other persons who might make limilar application. However, as far as his sym- pathies went they were entirely with the choir; It was for Mr Gery to say whether the Board could give their consent under the circumstances. This was quite an exeptional case, and he wished tbe choir every success, but be did not know how far, as representatives of the pubhc, they could go in granting the use of the .Park for such a purpose, Mr Gery stated that in a strictljr legal sense he did not think the Board could give consent; it was simply a matter as to how far moral pres- sure could be put upon the public. After some discussion a resolution was passed granting tbe use of the Park to the Cboral Union n the 7th of July next, the managers to indem- ify the Board against any damage that might e sustained. SCAVENGING TREGIBBOX. One tender only was received for scavenging he Tregibbon division, being, from Howell )avies, Hendrebaily, for the sum of £38 per mourn. The tender was accepted. WATER WORKS LOAN. Arrangements having been made for a loan of :3.>,000 from the Sun Fire Office, for the pur- shase of the Old Water company's works, Mr ?ord, solicitor to the Sun Office, and Major Powell, Cresurer to the Board, were preseat for the pur- pose of completing the same. It was resolved, on the motion of Mr Wm. rhomas, seconded by Mr J. W. Jones, that the leal of the Board and the signatures of Rees BEopkin Rhys, William Davies, David Davies, Leyshon Rhys, and Watkin Jones Thomas, being ive membets of the Board present at this meet- ng, be now affixed and subscribed to an indenture )f mortgage, bearing date this 26th day of June, 1873, for securing to Joseph Hoare, Henry George Hamilton, Lambert Pale, and Oswald Augustus Smith, Esquires, on mortgage of the rates and income of the Board under the Aber- dare Local Board Water Works Act, 1870," and :he General District Rate, the repayment of the mm of JE:35,000 now advanced to the Board, with interest thereon at £4 103 per annum (less to come tax), by thirty annual instalments, as in the said indenture mentioned; and Mr Thomas Bowes Powell, the treasurer of the Board, be authorised to receive the amount of the loan, and to sign the receipt for the same, written on the said indenture of mortgage. The seal of the Board was affixed to the mort- gage deed, and Mr Ford, solicitor to the Sun Fire Office, handed over the money in 35 thou- sand pound notes to Major Powell. The Chairman stated that it would be necessary to complete the purchase of the Water Works without delay, and suggested that the meeting be adjourned until Tuesday next for the purpose of taking possession. This was agreed to. SUBVETOB'S REPORT. The following report of the Surveyor was read:— 26th June, 1873, Surveyor's office. To the Aberdare Local Board of Health. Mr Chairman and Gentlemen.—I beg to lay before you plans, sections, and amended estimates of the probable cost for the private repairs pro- posed to be done in Llanthewy and Brecon-streets, Abaraman. [Here follows the estimate ] I also beg to report that I havff examined the privies, as reported by the Inspector of Nuisance, at the back of Nos. 1, and 2, Queen-street, Nos. 14, and 15, Llanthewy-street, Nos. 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, and 49, Glamorgan-street, and be. longing to Evan Griffith, High-stroet, Aberdare, the owner. Also Nos. 3, and 4, Queen.street, Nos. 12, and 13, Llanthewy-street, Nos. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12,Commerce-place, and belong- ing to James Martin, No. 9, Dean-street, Aber- dare, the owner, and found that the four privies were placed back to back with no cesspool, and that a drain is connected with tbe said privies, and through which the soil is discharged on to the surface of Llanthewy-street, and is a nuisance to the occupiers of premises adjoining the same. I would recommend that notice be given to Evan Griffith, and James Martin, the said owners to construct each six privies upon their respective premises in lieu of the present privies; the said privies to be constructed of stone or brick of the following dimensions four feet by four feet, and seven feet six inches high, with cesspools four feet by four feet, and to be eight feet in depth below tbe surface of the ground, and to be made watertight, and each privy to have proper seats, doors, and coverings, which would abate the nuisance complained of. I also beg to report that I have examined No. 2, Dare Court, Aberdare, in the occupation of Mrs Spellman, and belonging to Mrs Mary Wil- liams, Gelliddu-fawr, C> fnpennar, and found the roof, joists, floors, walls, windows and doors of the said house to be in a ruinous condition, a nuisance and unfit for human habitation and to make the place habitable, it is nfcessary that the roof should be made watertight, and the joists, floors, and walls repaired, and new doors and sash-frames, the upper half of the latter to be made to open the full width, should be provided for the said house. I also beg to lay before you an estimate of the probable cost for constructing a door from the public passage into the Board-room, Old Town Hall.

MERTHYR BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The ordinary weekly meeting of this Board was ijeld on Saturday, at the Board-room ot the Workhouse, Mr B Kirkhouse in the ohair. THE CONSOLIDATED RATES' BILL. The Clerk's report upon this Bill, which was read at the last meeting of the Board, was again read. After a short disoussion, Mt R. H. Rhys moved, That this Board fully agrees with the report of the Clerk upon Mr Stansfeld's Consolidated Rating Bill, and directs that a copy of the same be forwarded to Mr Stansfeld." This was seconded by Mr William Harris, and carried unanimously. APPOINTMENT OF RELIEVING OFFICER AT GELLYGAER. In accordance with notice previously given, Mr R. H. Rhys proposed Mr John Jones as successor to Mr Evan Davies, Relieving Officer for the parish of Gellygaer, and at the same salary. He believed Mr Jonea was well-known to the Board, and while acting as deputy for Mr Davies had discharged his duties in an admirable manner. Mr John Rees (Hengoed) seconded the motion. He knew Mr Jones to be a go d, steady man, but he should mention to the Board that Jones al- ready held an appointment under the School Board. This was not held by the Board to be any dis- advantage but nther the reverse, as it would tend to bring Mr Jones more in contact with the people, and anything which tended in this direc- tion was desirable. The appointment was therefore made. SMALL POX AT ABERDARE. A communication was read from Dr Symon, Medical Officer to the Local Government Board, with reference to the outbreak of small-pox at Aberdare, and asking if the requirements as to vaccination, &0., had been carried out. The Clerk said he had written to Mr R. Davies, the Vaccination Offioer for Aberdare, and in reply had received a report to the effect that the special directions had been carried out, and giving the result of his vaccination registers, showing a very satisfactory result as regards the vaccinations with those of births. In concluding his report, Mr Davies remarked that the olass now suSer. ing from small-pox were chiefly adults, and at a rough estimate 7 out of 10 were lodgers, who would gladly avail themselves of the accommo- dation of such an institution as an Infectious Diseases Hospital, were such in operation, but now they were the slur of the neighbourhood they happened to be in, and while such a state of things exists there is little chance of stamping out the scourge from among us." Mr R. H. Rhys thought this was a very good report, but it contained a reflection on the Aber- dare Board of Health, which he must take upon himself to explain away. He admitted that it was a great pity that although this Hospital had been finished for twelve months it was not yet open to receive patients, and if it had been, be did not doubt but they could have dealt more satis- factorily with that disease. The Hospital was commenced last March twelvemonth, when the small pox was raging very badly in Aberdare, and was completed, according to contract, in three or four months. It then became necessary to bor- row money to pay.for it, and, accordingly, thi Local Government Board sent down an Inspector who found a few faults, but not many, and when he went away he said he would advise the Local Government Board to grant the loan, instead of which another Inspector came down, who found twenty faults where Mr Taylor had found one, .and did not see those which Mr Taylor hed seen: These were put right, but still there was no sanction at all for the loan, and at last Dr. Rat- cliffe came down, who found a whole nest of en- tirely new faults and not those which either of his predecessors had noticed. He required all sorts of alerations made, which would involve the ex- penditure of another £1,000. A Committee was then appointed, and it was settled three or four months ago to lay out the money, and the Local Government Board was written to on tbe subject, but the loan never had their sanction from that day to this. About six weeks ago the Clerk was directed to write and state that small-pox had broken out again, and that it would be advisable to open the Hospital at.once, and if the £1,000 loan was sanctioned, the alterations should be made. To this the only answer was that the subject was under consideration." Since then three or four more letters had been written by the Clerk witheut any result, and at last he had been requested to write a letter throwing the whole blame of not opening the Hospital upon the Governmment authorities. As chairman of the Aberdare Board he could say that they were most anxious to have the Hospital opened, and it was not their fault that it was not done before. The Rev Dr. Price fully endorsed wliat had been said by Mr Bhys. They had been driven from pillar to post by contrary orders, and their hands were completely tied. After some further discussion't was resolved to adopt a resolution to the effect that this Board having heard the statement of the Chairman of the Aberdare Board of Health with reference to the Hospital, beg to urge upon the Local Govern- ment Board the neoessity for giving every facility for the opening of the Hospital at Aberdare. A communication was read from the Local Government Board approving the appointment of a Pay-clerk for the Union. Mr R. H. Rhys moved that a committee be ap- pointed to draw up a list of duties, and settle the amount of salary to be paid. This was seconded by Mr Hosgood, and the following Committee was appointed Messrs. R. H. Rhys, John James, the Rev Dr. Price, Thomas Williams, and William Harris.
IRON AND COAL TRADE. A change to very hot weather has rendered work at the ironmaking establishments very dlffl- cult. and especially the very heavy work of rail. making, which is the staple manufacture. Still there is a considerable amount of activity to be witnessed at all the works, and advices as to the position of the iron trade are fairly satisfactory. Nearly all the works are exclusively engaged on rail contracts either for the United States of Amerioa, South America, Canada, Russia, or Sweden. Although orders continue to come in slowly, there are sufficient to keep the works fully occupied, and it is gratifying to know that some. thing like full work is secured for some time to oome. There is no alteration to note in prices makers having firmly adhered to quotations for the last two months, because with pig iron, fuel, and labour at the high value they are, it would be impossible to carry on tbe works profitably if prices were lower than they are at prefeent. Cyfarthfa is, perhaps, the only establishment ex- tensively engaged on bar orders. Djwlais, Ebbw Vale, and Landore are turning out large and in- creased quantities of steel rails. During the past week the following have been among the exports of iron to the various foreign markets: —The Dowlais Iron Company, 1,000 tons of rail to St. John, and New York, 1,186 tons the Llynvi Company, 228 tons bar to Salonica; the Ebbw Vale Company, 1,150 tons rail to Cronstadt, 1,300 tons rail to Taganrog, and 1,100 tons rails to Genoa the Nantyglo and Blaina Company, 850 tons rail to Riga; T. Beynon and Co., 400 tons rails to Paysander; the Aberdare Iron Company, 159 tons to Esbjerb, and 205 tons rail to Antwerp; and the Tredegar Iron Company, 1,150 tons rail to Rio de Janeiro. It was erroneously stated in my last report that Mr J. Wightman had resumed the manage- ment of the Blaenavon works. I should have said that Mr Wightman had lesumed the man- agement of the Blaendare Ironworks. Operations have been interrupted at the Oak- field Ironworks, Cwmbran, upon a very absurd I excuse. The workers demanded the removal of the police officer placed there to watoh the pro- "erty, which the manager refused to comply with. The men then would not work, and they were put under notice. The coal trade is, on the whole, fairly active, but at some of the collieries work is much slack- er, and particularly at some of the house-coal < pits, where the men do not work more than half time During the latter half of May prioes de- clined, but sinoe then they have again advanced, and quotations are at present little lower than they were a month ago. If the demand had been f equal to the average, prioes must have advanoed i considerably during the Whitsuntide holidays, when tbe output of the pits was unusually small, i and was barely equal to the limited demand. No material change m the general state of the trade is looked forward to for some time to oome. Tbe latest quotations are as follow:—Rhondda Mer. tbyr smokeless steam coal, large colliery soreened, 23s 6d Hirwain Upper, 4 feet smokeless steam coal, 22s 6d; Wills's Rhondda Resolven, 228 6d; J: No 3 Rhondda, for smelting and domestic pur- Soses, &o., 20s; Rbondda through coal, 15s; No 2 through steam coal for mining purposes, blast-engine furnaces, &c., 13s 61. It Is apprehended by some of itie colliery prietors that the ooming into operation of Mines Regulation Act will cause some disaf ments between masters and men. For fasts Messrs Telkfson, & Holst, Wills, of Cardiff, circular just issued, state" The payment of liers per imperial weight, which cornea into c ation on the 1st of August, is likely for I time to decrease the supply, and this will bably affect other districts more than S Wales, as the coals are weighed in South W while in many districts they are measured < but from the 1st August nothing but weig will be permitted under the New Mines Rej tion Bill. In this district thu men seem resc to have the same wages for cutting 20 cu they have had hitherto for cutting 21 cwt., this the masters never will permit, and prot much time will be lost over it, and it is evi that everything that diminishes the supply 1 to maintain the preseat high prices." By the unanimous desire of the Board ol Cardiff and Swansea Smokeless Steam Coal ( pany limited), Mr John Cory, of Cardiff, Mr F. A. Tysp, of Swansea, have consente accept the positions of managing directors. John Davis, of Portishead, and formerly of i port, has been appointed secretary. Impo extensions and improvements are to be imn ately carried out at the Resolven and P4 Chureh collieries, which enable the proprieto largely increase the output. Messrs. ]>avid and Stoper, who have for a time persevered in a very trying and sc search for coal at Hendredenny, near Caerpi have at last found the If diamond they seeking. A lengthly heading has been d through a great fault, on the west of whiol a very fine seam of coal, and this seam has been struck. Tbe present high prices an< superior quality of the coal found will, no d amply repay the proprietors for the capital have sunk.—Mining World.

THE VISIT OF THE SHAII. The Shah of Persia, the successor of Darius, the monarch of that nation to the immutability of whose laws Scripture bears such repeated testi- mony, has arrived in London, and is now the honoured guest in the palace of the Queen of England. Although the drenching downpour of rain which greeted his advent in the metropolis must have given him a very unfavourable opinion of our climate, it cannot but be observed that by this circumstance the elements combined to give him a thoroughly characteristic, though at the same time a decidedly unpleasant English wel- come. Since then Nasr-ed-deen has gone the u^ual round of festivities accorded to illustrious strangers, but on a scale of magnificence and grandeur which few can remember as having happened before. Received at Dover by salutes thundered from the broadsides and turrets of some of the finest specimens of our maritime architec- ture, feted by the civic authorities at Guildhall, invited to witness a naval review at Spithead, and military displays at Woolwich and Windsor; it will indef-d be surprising to hear that the King of Kings" conveys back to his remote capital of Teheran other than the most exhalted and lofty notions of our national power and pres- tige. If court chroniclers are to be believed, to visit England has been one of the principal objects which induced the Shah to leave his Eastern home, and this not so much for the purpose of studying the f.arfut implements of warfare and destruction in coming among us as to learn those arts and industries which ten 1 to make empires and people so great and ptwerf il. If this is the les- ion the royal pupil see** to learn, he cannot have ebosen* better teacher, for in this respect of all the countries of Europe, the nation nf shopk, ep. ers" is the only one capable of f nve/ing to his mind any idea Jof what commerce an 1 manuf: c. tnre, flour shin; under a constitutional g r em- ment, reilly is. Wiih serene ojoplacenoy we shall be < nabled to po n mt t) die Ptriidn nl r the factories, mines, worksaops, and the o her veins and arteries wiiich diffuse ealth and prosperity throughout the width and breadth of the land. He will be enabled to see for himself the influence of the peaceful following of trade avocations upon the character of the nation. Until his arrival in England he had passed through territories devoted, with one small ex- ception, to the amplification of those "bloated armaments," to use the language of Mr D'lsraeli, who, in unison with every man of sense and feel- ing, has so strongly condemned them. The Shah is now called upon to take note of the effects which en sue from the cultivation of far opposite pursuits, and there is no reason to doubt but that he will profit by doing so. At all events, he must necessarily ,gain a most salutary impression which may be of great service to him in the choice of an ally, should the peculiar geographical posi- tion of his dominions ever call upon him to re- quire one.
