The marvellous effect of this fine medicine upon the system is such a* to Immediately rally all the vital (unctions, tile appetite is soon restored, a full flow of spirits quickly follows, the body itnmensely invigorated with a ceriaiuty of restored health: fresh air and a little exercise are necessary to bring about a permanent state of things. Holloway's Pills impart tone and energy to the most delicate constitutions, and In a manner as to astonish aN who take them. By their extiaordinary virtue, they have obtained the large-1 sale of any medicine in the world Bead, Heart, Lungs, and Stomach. Look to the regularity of the (unctions of these foundations of vitality. Holloway's Pills restore to order the slightest departure from the proper action, and, therefore, may be considered as the regulators of the niainspring of human lite. Apoplexy can aiway" be prevented if the proper action of the bowels be attended to, which this famous medicine never fails to accomplish. Disorders of the bead and heart often terminate suddenly and fatally from obstructions in the system, which might generally be prevented by taking small and regular doses of this fine corrective. Female Disorders. No medicine can be so infallibly relied upon for overcoming all obstructions as these Pilla. They never fail to restore a healthy action throughout tile system. The printed instructions will enable all to correct the first symptoms of disease, and avert many serious maladies. Holloway's Pills soon change the sickly and sallow complexion, thus renewing the bloom of health. To females centering into womanhood, or at the turn of life. tbese Pills will be found invaluable. They should be taken two or three times a week, as a safeguard against dropsy, headaches, palpitations of the heart, and all nervous affections, so distressing at certain periods. Sick Headache, Indlgrestlon or foul Stomach, and Disordered Liver. In such a deranged state of health the food is decomposed instead of being digested, and proves poisonous rather than nu- tritious. This derangement can be at once set right by a course o I tht se purifying and digestive Pills, which have acquired for themselves an imperishable fame for the mastery they have constantly exercised over the digestive organs. Holloway's Pills increase the appetite, regulate the liver, repress bilious, ness, healthily stimulate the kidneys and move the bowels in a more wholesome and natural manner than any other medicine. Disorders incidental to Children. The liver and stomach of children are, from many causess often out of order, as they are allowed to eat many things that would disagree with their parents, hence their blood becomes impure, and liable to take any disease that is prevalent, and that in the worst form. One Pill, reduced to a powder, and put in a little water, given occasionally to children of twelve months old and to those of three or four years, three Pills, and to others of seven years of age four Pills-will always make children look looming and hea thy. Seventy-five out Of every hundred do not reach the age of maturity. Holloway's Pills would not only preserve their health, but save the lives of thousands. Many people foolishly think that children only require a little medicine twice a year. Holloway's Pills are the best remedy known in the world for the following dueasea:- Ague Femalelrregularities Scrofula, or Asthma Fever* of all kinds King s Evil Bilious Complaints Pits Sore Throats Blotches on'the Skin Oout Stone and Gravel Bowel Complaint* Head-ache SecondarySymptoms Colics Indigestion Tic-Douloureux Constipation of the Inflammation Tumours Bowels Jaundice Ulcers Consumption Liver Complaints Venereal Affections Debility Lumbago Worms of all kinds Dropsy Piles Weakness, from Dropsy Piles Weakness, from Oysentery Rheumatism whatever cause, Krysipelas Retention of Urine &c.. &c- Sold at the Establishment of PROFESSOR HOIXOWAT, 244, Strand (near Temple Bar,) London; and by all respectable Druggists and Dealers in Medicines throughout the emiuert world, at the following prices Is. 1 jd 2s. 9d., 4s.

As the meet- ing takes place so early in the season, the usual custom of having open-air preaching is given up, and all the services on this occasion will be held in the various chapels, and in the Temperance Hall, which latter place also will be fitted up for the occasion. Besides the ministers connected with the body, a de- putation of ministers from the United Presbyterians will also be present. English services will also be held in the Wesleyan Chapel, Queen-street, on Wednesday evening, and on Tnursday throughout. The Welsh services will commence in the two chapels of the connection on Tuesday evening.
ABERYSTWITH HUNT WEEK & STEEPLE CHASES. THE Aberystwith annual hunt week and steeple chases commenced on Monday lust, upon which occasion the Gogerddnn foxhounds met at Tany- hwlrh, the seat of Vaughan Dtvies, Esq. They drew the covers, but did not find. They proceeded from there to Penglais, where they were alike un- successful. In Cwmcynfelin, however, they fouud, and after a short run Reynard was run to ground.
ON TUESDAY A larlle number of the inhabitants of the town and surrounding district were in attendance upon the new race-course, which is situated between the railway embankment and the vale of Clarach, for the purpose of witnessing the contests for the "Open," The Ladies' Purse," and "The Railway Stakes." Between 1 and 2 o'clock the bell rang, and the following put in for THE OPEN STEEPLE CHASE. Of 100 sovereigns, added to a handicap sweepstakes of 10 sovereigns each. Over about 4 miles of fair hunting country. Second horse to save his stake. Mr. J. R. Riddell's bgCarew (Owner) 1 Mr. W. R. H. Powell's ch g Ace ot Hearts (Pope) 2 Mr. R. Riddell's ch m Annie Laurie (Owner) 3 The Ace at first took off the lead, going at a rattling pace; the three jumped the fly leaps in the starting field splendidly, as they also made the jumps from the ploughed field to the turning by Bowstreet. Under Nantsiriol the Ace was a long way a-head; but under Porfhanare) Carpw pressed hard upon her quarters, and both jumped the bank simultaneously and shortly afterwards Carew showed in front, having the Ace second, and Annie Laurie third. In this position they came to the brook, which is adjoining the course, where Annie Laurie fell (giving her rider a most beautiful dip), and was picked up. From this time out the race between Carew and the Ace of Hearts appeared to be nothing more than a sham. Carew led by about a field, and the Ace was just moving, some- times doing nothing more than trotting over the ground. Carew of course won in a canter. THE LADIES' PURSE. Mr. W. R. H. Powell's Miss Nightingale walked over, as also she did for THB RAILWAY STARES. On this day we noticed on the course—Capt. Pryse, M.P. Col. Powell, M.P.; Mr. Vaughan Davies; Col.

ON WEDNESDAY The hounds met at Nanteos, where they soon found a fox, and had a splendid run. In the evening a ball took place at the Assembly Rooms. The room had been most beautifully and artistically decorated for the occasion. The supper, which was laid out in the Reading Room, was got up in a style which could not be excelled, showing that Mr. and Mrs. Careswell had spared no expense in catering for the occasion. The following was thp. bill of fare:—Mdck turtle and ox-tail soups; 12 turkfys 20 couple of fowls; 20 tongues 6 hams 6 pieces of pressed beef; 6 chicken pies; 6 raised ditto; pheasants and partridges; brawn and potted meats; 6 aspecs of chickens on jelly; sirloin of beef; orange; clear and marble jellies; blanc- mange; jermange; lemon sponges; Neapolitan; tipsy and trifle cakes; dishes of fancy pastry; pre- served fruit, &e., tcc., &e. Nearly all the gentry mentioned above attended. The dancing was kept up with much spirit, and the company did not se- parate till the small hours. The band, which con- sisted of some of the most talented artistes from Shrewsbury, gave great satisfaction. OITTHURSDAY The attendance on the course this day was more numerous than on Tuesday. The following was the running:- THE COGERDDAW HANDICAP. or 3 sovereigns each. with 25 eovereigna added Mr. W. R. H. Powell's b m Miss Nightingale, (Pope) 1 Mr. J. R. Riddell s b m Aunt Sally, (Owner) 2 Mr. R. Riddell's ch m Annie Laurie, (Babbage) 0 At the firflt fence Babbage fell, and at once Annie Lanrie wax out of thf rapp. Miss Nightingale kept the lead the whole of the distance, and won easily. THE MEMBERS' PLATE. Of 50 sovereigns, added to a sweepstakes of 5 so- vereigns each. Mr. J. R. Riddell's b g. Carew (Owner) 1 Mr. W. R. H. Powell's ch g Aee of Hearts, (Pope) 2 Mr. R. Riddell's ch m Annie Laurie, (Babbage) 0 In this race Carew from the very starting assumed the lead, and a good field's hreadth was between him and the Ace under Nantsiriol. Annie Laurie was for some reason pulled up by Bowstreet. Nothing particular happened until Carew came into the winning field, when, in jumping the first flying leap, he stumbled and fell. Mr. Riddell however was soon up again, and won in a canter. A PONY RACE. Of 2s. 6d. each, with £5 added. Mr. Fryer's King Cole ] Mr. Pell's King Harry 2 Mr. R. Morris's Garibaldi g Mr. T. R. Jones's Pillbox 7 ran. THE CONSOLATION STAKES. Of 3 sovereigns each, with a purse added, forced for the winners of each race, and free for any other horse. Mr. J. R. Riddell's Aunt Sally (Owner) 1 Mr. Powell's Miss Nightingale (Pope) 2 Mr. R. Riddell's Annie Laurie (Babbage) 0 This was decidedly the most exciting race of all, Aunt Sally and Miss Nightingale heing throughout the whole race close together; they entered the winning tielfl almost a-breast; and after a splendid finish Aunt Sally was landed the wlIllIer by a short head. Annie Laurie had bolted early in the race and was pulled up. Thus ended the day's sport. In the evening a large number of gentlemen sat down to a recherche banquet, which was served up at the Lion Royal Hotel, by Mrs. Barlow, in first- rate style.
IMPROVEMENT COMMISSIONERS-SPECIAI MEETING. THE WATER SUPPLY QUESTION. A SPKCIAL meeting of the commissioners for im- proving and regulating the town of Aberystwith was held at the Town-hall, on Saturday last, at 3 in the afternoon, which was duly convened by a requisition, signed by five of the said commissioners, and directed and delivered to their clerk, for the purpose of con- sidering the report of the committee appointed at a meeting held on the 2nd inst., to consider what steps should be taken to increase a better supply of water to the town, and to determine thereon accordingly- There were present-T. O. Morgan, Esq., maVo £ in the chair; Messrs. Charles Hackney, John Williams, „ < errace' Edward Rowland, Edward Ellis, David Williams, John Rees, Richard Morris, John Jones Atwood, Thomas Jones, and Benjamin Hughes. It was determined that the water from the spring near the Midway should be brought in to the present earthenware pipe near Plascrug. by means of a simi- lar line of earthenware pipes that the present pipes from the spring or well near the Llanbadarn bridge down to the pump in Thespian-street., be put in a proper state of repair, and that 6-ineh main iron pipes should be laid from the Iron Foundry of Mrs. Mary Ellis & Sons, through Queen's Road to the reservoir, for the purpose of supplying it with water by means of the forcing apparatus of Mrs. Mary Ellis & Sons. It was agreed that the Clerk should be directed to advertise, in one of the Glasgow news- papers, for tenders for 40 tons of main water cast- iron pipes. A committee, consisting of the chair- man, Thomas Jones, and J. J. Atwood, Esqrs., was appointed and requested to wait uponCol Powell,M. P., for his permission to lay the pipes from the Midway to join and connect the present pipes near Plascrug. The following is a copy of the report of the com- mittee referred to above, viz. To the Aberystwith Town Improvement Commissioners, GEItTLEMEN',— WK, the undersigned, members of the committee appointed at the meeting held on Tuesday, the 2nd day of February instant, to consider what measutes it would be advisable to take for ensuring a better supply of water to the town, and to report tncrenn, having taken the matter into consideration, do find as foilovrs; 1st. Upon information given us by the turncock, Jesse Morgan, that the six-inch main from the reservoir to the town is become crowded and defective, that its bore has been reduced to nearly one-half, or to three inches; but notwithstanding which the turncock has hitherto been able 10 supply the town with a suffi- cient supply of water by turning on three days in each week, and the turncock expresses himself confident that he will be able ? continue to do so, provided the reservoir is key*<ptoperly filled 2nd. We are assured by Mr. Griffith Ellis, (and io.^hich he is backed by the turncock,) that from the trials already made, he..U be able to keep the reservoir fully supplied with water of the purest qualily from the well in Thespian-street, by means ot his forcing apparatus, as soon as he shall have perfected the same. Upon the foregoing state of facts, we beg to recommend that a new six-inch main should be immediately laid down from Mrs Ellis & Sons's Foundry, along North Gate-street, the Queen's Road, and to the reservoir, and which main should for the present be used solely (when required) for the purpose of sup- plying the reservoir with water by means of Mr. Ellis's forcing apparatus. By these means, as must be obvious, there-ervoircanbeat all times kept full, and the town kept plentifully supplied with water, indeed, in case of necessity, with more than double the present supply, by turning on six instead of three days only, as heretofore. We are, Gentlemen, your faithful Servants, THOMAS 0. MORGAN, THOMAS JONES, Aberystwith, Oth Feb., 1884. JOHN JONES ATWOOD.
COUNTY COURT. BEFORE A. J. JOHNES, ESQUIRE, JUDGE. The usual County Court for this month was held on Tuesday and Wednesday last. There had been 129 plaints entered, besides some re-issued and adjourned cases and several judgment summons. The number of plaints which came on for hearing were 56 the others had been arranged out of Court. The Court was mostly occupied in disposing of the following casea, viz:— John M. Davies, Esq., Penpontbren, v. Evan Evans, of Aberdovey.-Claim, £6 12s. 6d., for a pony bought by defendant at a sale of the effects of Mr. Charles Williams, Moelynys The plaintiff and his witnesses proved that the pony in question was the property of Mr. Davies, the plaintiff, and that the defendant knew it well; and that the pony was only sent there by Mr. Williams' permission to be sold on that day. Mr. Edwards of Aberdovey appeared for the defendant. He contended that the defendant was not aware until after the pony was knocked down to him, and that he had settled and paid for the pony to Mr. C. Williams, as well as for other effects he had bought there. The case was adjourned for a month for defendant to produce evidence. Pritchard v. East Bronfloyd Mining Company.— The plaintiff claims £ 11 lis. 6d. for work done, in driving and sinking at the East Bronfloyd Mine, as per particulars. iVIr. Vaughan appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Atwood supported the Company, and and contended that the plaintiff had paid in full, and produced the cost sheets of the mine, and called the then agent and clerk of the mine to support it. Judgment for plaintiff for claim. Edward Richards v. M. L. Vaughan Davies.- Claim :£45 Its. lid. for damages. This was a jury case. Mr. Atwood appeared for plaintiff and Mr. Vaughan for defendant. Before the witnesses were called on, the defendant's attorney consented to a ver- dict for £ 30, and also to pay the cost of the action. Mary Hughes, Pontllanychaiarn, v. Henry Willis, Pier Street.-Claim E20 14s. lid. for fowls sold Mr. Vaughan appeared for plaintiff. and Mr. Atwood for defendant. The case being called on, the defen- dant's attorney demanded the plaintiff to deliver further and better particulars of the claim. The Case was adjourned for that purpose. Isaac Morgan, (Malster,) v. Daniel Morgan, Perthygwenyn.—This endless action was brought on for the sixth, if not for the seventh time, that the claim might be settled between these sanguine and unconquered litigants. Each party, as on the previous occasions, had professional aid. As five, or even less number of gentlemen acting as jurors had so many times failed to agree herein, the parties interested in the contest had, through their advocates, consented to refer it to his Honor to decide between them, who is to take the evidence as already given on former trials. Judgment to be delivered at a future Court. Ebenezer Williams, Executor of John Williams, deceased, v. Thomas Blackwull and others, and John Jones v. Ebenezer Williams.-Several actions and cross actions were brought herein, and to settle same the time of the Court was long taken up. The amounts in dispute were small, and the cases were wholly devoid of interest except to the parties directly concerned. Judgments given for and against, according to the evidence.
NEWTOWN & MACHYNLLETH RAILWAY. The Ordinary Half-Yearly General Meeting of this Company was held on Wednesday last, at the Town-hull, Machynlleth. The cPair was occupied by R. D. Pryce, Esq. The Secretary, (Mr. David Howell,) read the fol- lowing report of the Directors:- In our last two half-yearly Reports we explained the terms of the arrangement with the Oswestry and Newtown Company, under which our Railway is worked by them as part of the Cambrian or Welsh System, and the Income on our Capital is secured. That Company have accordingly provided funds which will enable you to declare the guaranteed dividends of £ 5 per cent. on our preference Shares, and L41 per cent. on our ordinary Shares up to the 31st of December last. The Bill for Amalgamation has been re-introduced this Session in pursuance of the agreement with the Oswestry and Newtown Company. Should it pass into law, the undertaking will cease to exist as a separate Company, but the income on our capital will be secured on terms similar to those provided under the present agreement. The Bill will, in due time, have to be submitted to you for approval at a Wharncliffe Meeting. To guard against delay in the completion of the Railway from Machynlleth to Aberystwith, which is so important for the full developemeut of the traffic on our line and the public convenience, we are promoting a Bill with a view to obviate such a risk. This precautionary measure is in accordance with Agreements entered into in IBhl, between this Company and the Manchester and Gilford Company, hnd the Aherysiwith and Welsh Const Company, and with clauses which were inserted on our appli- cation in the Acts of the last named Company. This Bill also will have to be laid before you at a Wharncliffe Meeting. Preference Shares created under our Capital Act of last year have been disposed of to the amount of :£86,5,50. The remaining £23,450 will be soon nego ia and enable us to discharge the remain- Account'"eS °'ComPar,y c'ose Capital The following resolutions were moved and unani- mously carried :— That a dividend, at the Tate of 5 percent, per annum, shall b* paid to the Shareholders upon the Preference Capital of the Company up to the 31st day of December last inclusively. That a dividend, at the rate of 4J percent, per annum, shall be paid to the Shareholders upon the Ordinary Capital of the Company for the half-year ended 31st day of December last. That the cordial thanks of tne meeting be given to R. D. Pryce, Esq., for his able conduct in the chair, and to the Directors for their successful management of the affairs of the Company.
MINING INTELLIGENCE.. GREAT DARKEN.—We have for a longtime stated that this mine would prove to be one of the mining prizes of the county. We are now in a position to say that this condition of the property is realised. We have some pride in this, itS mining predictions are sometimes subject to be frustrated but, when verified, it is another link in the chain of evidences to prove that so much may be known of the success a priori, and that the whole proceedings connected with mines, and the indicia tending to discoveries, are phenomena, the elements of which, to a certain extent, can be read and turned to advantage before the substance is found. In point of fact it is the shadow appearing before the substance; and the value of this natural, although somewhat metaphy- sical state of things to man cannot be over-rated; for, although evidence is IIot sufficiently substantial to be relied upon as certain as the mathematical reading of a plan and section, it is a finger post, with the direction sufficiently distinctly pointed to avoid all danger of losing the way :—without such hints for guidance, much of the underground ways of mining would be fruitless and unavailing. The Great Darren silver lead lode passes through a mountain crowned by a Roman encampment. This encampment stands 480 ft. above the eastern valley —a valley full of valuable mines, containing Bwlch Consols, CwU) Erfin, Cwm 8eboll, CWID Darren, the Great Darren, and that richest, widest, and most profitable lock; of all in the district, the Bronfloyd Mine. Much of the higher body of the Darren lode being excavated, it was advised that the shaft shontd be sunk under the base of the mountain. This has been effected under Oliver's level, at the foot of the eastern side of the encampment. This shaft has been sunk 10 fins., and the ore ground at the sides of the level, from the bottom of the shaft, now yields 2 tons of ore per fm. This run of ore already has been opened for a length of 30 yards-16 men can take away of this ore about 40 cubic fathoms per month, yielding 30 tons, or about 600Z. worth of ore; but, as other tutwork is necessary for prepar- ing the ore ground for working, we will take 25 men as the number to be employed for all purposes, such as sinking shafts, driving levels, and stoping away the ore. The cost of stoping 40 fms. of ground is oOl.; tutwork, 30Z.; dressing 30 tons of ore, 60L carriage, 60A; royalty, 801.; agency, 301.; mate- rials, &c., 301.; sundries, 30Z.; 390Z. out of 6001. leaves a monthly profit of 210Z., or an annual profit of 2.520Z., from 15 fathoms of ore ground. Now most, of the ore formations in Cardiganshire are 60 Ims. long, and there appears every probability that this will open to the same extent. In that case, this deposit alone would give a profit of 10,0801. a year.-Mining Journal.

MACHYNLLETH. — BURGLARY.— On Tuesday night last the shop of Mr. Joseph Hughes, Watch- maker, Machynlleth, was broken into, and a large number of watches extracted from the windows. No clue to the burglar or burglars has as yet been obtained.
-♦ HISTORICAL NOTES. BARRY ISLAND, &C. THIS island is situated on the northern shore of the Bristol Chahnel, a short distance from Cadoxton. It belonged to the family of Giraldus de Barry, whose history I gave in my last letter; and it is supposed that it was so called from the Barri or Barry family, who were lords of the island; others are of opinion that it deriv s its name from Baruch, a hermit, who, according to Cressy, died about 700. "Unknown to public view, From youth to age a reverend hermit grew; The moss his htd, the cave his humble cell; His fond the fruits, his drink the crystal well; Bcmote from man, with God he passed his days; Prayer all his business, all his pleasure praise." Those small islands which skirt our coasts were the favourite resort of people in those days. It is said that not less than 40,000 men retired to the small island of Bardsey, on the Carnarvonshire coast, to die. The ground was considered, until lately, consecrated. Mr. Pennant visited the island, and he says that the boatmen who rowed the boat took off their hats as they approached the island. Gir- aldus says that an hermit lived on the Flat Holmes, where he was buried." Leland, the anti- quarian, paid a visit to the island. in his time there was a small church, called St. Baruch's chapel; but. it has disappeared, and its very founda- tions rooted up. Sir Richard Hoare, in his transla- tion of Giraldus I tin., says — "That near the entrance of the island, there was a small cave, to which if the ear was applied, a noise is heard like that of smiths at work, and blowing their bellows, strokes of hammers, grinding of tools, and roaring of furnaces; and it might easily be imagined that such noises, which are continued at the ebb and flow of the tides, were occasioned by the influx of the sea under the cavities of the rock." In the southern part of the island, at a point called Nell's Point," there is a well, to which great numbers of the gentler sex were in the habit of visiting on Holy Thursday, for the purpose of washing their eyes at the spring, and dropping a pin into it. The land- lord of a house close by told Sir Richard Hoare that On cleaning the well he took a pint of votive offer- ings. On the northern side of the island stands the small church of Barry and the village. Near this village there was a castle, which was visited by Leland. "It standeth on a bill, and most of it is in t ruin. Master S. John, of Bedfordshire, is lord of it. Maurice S. John, uncle to Sir John S.John, was owner of it.Lelarid',v Itin. Between the village of Barry and Cadoxton there are some extensive ruins of a castellated mansion. From its present appearance, we presume it was a place of some note. A family of the name of An- drews resided here, who came to this country with Fiizhamon. The pigeon house is still in a good state of preservation. The owner must have had a great delight in the feathery tribe. John Bland, Esq., of Sully, bought the property attached to it some time ago, and we have no doubt that Mr. Bland will preserve this relic of antiquity, and there is no danger that it will meet the same fate as many old castles and mansions within this country. We love those ancient ruins; we never set our foot upon them without treading on some revered history of the past. "The hour has been when this mould'ring pile Was dressed in symmetry othfime; Seen in stupendous strength to smile, And seemed to dare the power of time- But now time's native warning breath Has blown its awful grace away- Time, charged with ruin, loss, and death. Spread o er this mansion pale decay. Then, since man's noblest structure*fall*, How short a space can mortals stand— Compound of clay I if granite walls Of castles crumble into sand?

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.— Momentous Inquiry.—Sur- rounded as we are by exciting causes of disease, it becomes our duty to seek some means of expelling impurities from the body, or rendering them harm- less. Professor Holloway has discovered a medicine capable of effecting this all-important point, aud has generously placed it within the reach of the poorest. His Pills guard the constituents of the blood, whtch, when contaminated or destroyed, permit fevers, inflammations, and other maladies to run riot through and undermine the system, or con- SI2"n their victims to untimely tombs. In malarious districts and unhealthy towns, these Pills, after silently proving themselves the best protectors against fevers, &c., have, within the last few years, been adopted by the profession and public.
