HOMOWAT'I PILLS AND OINTMENT.—DiMMM of Women. —Medical science in all ages has been directed to alleviate the many maladies incident to females, but Professor Holloway, by diligent study and attentive observation, was induced to be- lieve that nature had provided a remedy for their special dis- eases. He has, after a vast research, succeeded in compound- ing his celebrated Pills and Ointment, which embody the prin- ciple naturally designed tor the relief and cure of disorders peculiar to women of all ages and constitutions, whether r«- iiding ia warm or cold climates. They h*ve repeatedly cor- rected disordered functions which have defied the utual drugs prescribed for such' cas"; and still more satisfactory isS the malady is relieved completely and permanently.

FOUND DEAD.-Ann Jenkins, an elderly person, who occupied a room on the lower floor of a eottage at Penrhiwficer, was found dead on the floor of her room, face downwards, about middle day on Wednesday, the 12th instant. She was to all IIp- pearallce in her usaal health the previous evening, and was seen out of doors. She had gone in and closed the door of her room, and mast have fallen and expired before retiring to her bed, which was in the same room. There was another woman, a widow, living in the same house, and she slept in a room upstairs over the room occupied by the de- ceased, and a lad nine years of age slept in another room upstairs as neither of these heard any noise it must be that the unfortunate woman died without a struggle. The widow went to work at ihe hay the following morning not knowing anything of what had occurred. Oae of the neighbours, in course of the morning peeped in at the window, and saw the deceased on the floor. TREGARON. The "Observer" can be obtained of Mr Thomas Jones, PlKt Office. THE PROPOSED MUSIC ;COLLBGE.—The board ofl guardians at their last meeting, on the motion of Mr Jenkins resolved itself inte a com- mittee to eoasider a communicatioa from Colonel Pryse, Peithyll, on this question. The aommittee resolved to use its influence in favour of the move- ment, and to take steps as individuals to promote the holding of concerts and a general eanTas in their respective parithee. On the motien of Mr R. J. Davies it was resolved to defer taking any active steps to earry out any scheme antil the autumn. BOARD OF GUARDIANS, 11th July, the Rev O. Dario, M.A. in the chair. The minuter, ordinary itatietics and rtpertt, and the relief lists haTing been gone through, the chairman directed the at- tention of the guardians te Mr Bireham'n report on the state of pauperism in the district. This union is set forth as having a population of 10,271, on rateable value of £ 82.670, and an area of 128,060 acre*. Of the 31 unions in this district, Mr Bircham puts Trepartn seeond on the list, having only Gower to heat, and a deeiwal only to overtake. Tregtron stands at the htttdofthtCardi- ganshire unions with a per centage of t'g, the average for the whole district being 4,8, and for England and Wale. 3 0. Tre- garon expended laet year at the rate of U^din thef on indoor, and out-door relief, or oR the maintenance of 297 pau- pers, being about £5 0s Sd per head, sbew-Inr a decrease of 1001 on the previous year's expense. From the report it was obgorv- able that the Trega on paupers belong mostly to old age and permanent disability. Out of the above number no lees than 257 are under section A., but it is difficult to account how 203 old people and those permanently disabled can presei.t 35 child- ran to the pauper apprenticeship of the union. Mr D. Davies, Garthely, moved that the clerk be directed to a-k the consent of the Local Government Board for the guard- ians to re-consider the appointment of its treasurer, with -lie view of having the st-rricM done honorarily. He stated that the present officer, for whom he had the greatett respect, was paid over.fld a year, while other unions paid nothing for like ser- vices, and he asked the mernhen to support an attempt to efisc t this savinff for the ratepayers. The motion wax agrend to, and the clerk was directed to ask for the consent mentioned therein. Mr J. A. Jenkins moved that this board is of opinion that the union is very unfairly represented on the Board of Guardians, and with a view to effect a reformation thatt the clerk be direc- ted to apply to the Local Government! Board to send a commis- sioner to enquire into the grievance. The following figures were adduced in fa-, our of the motion. The union hus J3 Beats, ^representing 82,4301 rateable; vulu,, 10,276 population, and 308 paupers. Eight of .these seat* represent 17,4481 (or 2,1731 to elicit guardian), 8,016 population (rJr 752 to each guardian), 202 paupers (or 26 to each guardian). Seven of the seats represent 9,722* rateable value, or 1,380l to each guardian, 8,704 popula- tion, or 439 to eapli guardian, 77 paupers, or 11 to each guard- ian. The remaining einht seats represented only 5,310i, or t103/ to each guardian; 1,183 population or 148 to each guardian, 2t paupers or 8 to each guardian. A majority of the board ispre- gents only 10,322Z rateable value, and 2,827 population, while the minority represents 2J.138J ratnable valne and 7,644 popula- tion.-The Boird admitted the grievance and agreed to the motion on the condition that the mode of reform be left to th e proposed inquiry. LLANSAINTFYRAID. School Board, July Sth. Present-Mesqrs John Davies (vice- chairman); B. L. Morris and Isaac Evans; S. B. Jones, D. 0 Morgan, and Mary Lewis (teacher,;), and Jenkin Jenkins clerk. The minutes were read and signed. Mr D. O. Morgan had givei. in to the clerk three month notice to leave. It was remarked that the notice was dated th 3rd June and idven in on the 10th. The resignation was ac. capted. Mr Morgan, master of the Cron Inn school, complained of the vice-chairman's conduct as apparent in refusing to send his own children to school and in attempting to came other parents to withold their c.liildrsn. The board expressed their deep rsgret at the unpleasant feelings existing between the parties, and ordered the clerk to see that all parents be de. It with alike. Mr Davies explained that he kept his children from school as a protest agaiast the way the school is conducted, but denied having interfered with the children of any of hi,, neighbours. Some half a dozen applied for permission to hire out their during the summer months. To all those qualified to attend half time ccnse-t was given. Mr J. Pugh's claim in still not settled, and the board, with a view of arriving at an amicable Mttlement, ordered the clerk to effer without prejudice to. refer tha dispute to arbitration, and the board named a ratepayer in the district to act on its behalf, if Mr Pugh is inclined to aecede to the proposal. Precepts for .EM were issued on the rating authorities to meet the expenses of the board to Michaelmas next.

LIFE AND LETTERS OF THE REV. THOMAS CHARLES OF BALA.* The above work has been lately issued from the press, and we mast confess at the outset that we have not read for many a long day a biography so full of interest and reality. We have carefully and with much pleasure waded through every page of the book and can safely recommend all-Conformists and Non. conformists alike-to read and re-read this excellent work, to ponder ever it, and love it. The religious world, even if we take it in its widest possible sense, is much indebted to the talented author of the Life and Letters of the Rev Thomas Charles" for a biography which commemorates and will commemor- ate for all time the life and actions of one of the greatest Welshmen that ever adorned the Welsh Church. This is a book tha* ought to be on the shelf of every Christian, especially on the shelf of the Christian minister, whether attached to church or chapel. Its occasional perusal will comfort the Christian pastor in his trials, guide him in his diffi- culties, instruct him in the deep things of God, and show him how, by a well-directed energy and true missionary spirit, to promote the moral and spiritual advancement of the people committed to his charge. There are t'nree or four kinds of biographies. We have sometimes an autobiography by some distin- guished man, who thinks, like Mr Gladstone, that a "fragment" thereof, giving an account of his mental evolutions and change of policy from day to day, will interest his countrymen. We have sometimes a man's biography written during his liftetime. When this is done the object is twofold. The writer has some prominent man in view, whom he admires or does not admire. His aim is to flatter the man whom he admires, to exalt :him, and palm him off upon his credulous readers as one of the great "men of the time." Such is the "Life" of John Bright, which has been lately published. On the other hand the object often is to ridicule and disparage some great con- temporary that has failed to secure the writer's ad- miration, as, for instance, the late Lord Beaconsfield. During his career many "Lives" of him were written, all having a tendency to ruin his political reputation and pull him down from that high and responsible position, which he occupied to the great advantage of his sovereign and country. We have sometimes a biography of this or that good man, written some years, often many years, after his life's work has come to an end and his soal has ceased for ever to labour towards what Mr Tennysen has called the— One far off Divine event To which the whole Creation moves." Biographies of this kind are common enoagh, and are almost daily written. There is, however, a fourth kind of biography, which is a happy combination of the first and third mentioned above. It is partly an autobiography, and partly a biography written re- spectively by the author and by the person whom the author commemorates. The Life and Letters of the Rev Thomas Charles" is one of the latter kind, and of all "Lives" this is always the most interesting and instructive. Mr Charles was a remarkaole man, and lived in remarkable times. His "Lite and Let- ters" are also remarkable, and teem with facts, his- torical and religious, which will'not only interest but edify the reader. It is evident from his letters that Mr Charles was well acquainted with the writings of the ".seraphic" Harvey, and, if our memory does not greatly deceive us, we feel sure that Mr Charles culled many a beau- tiful thought and many a flowery expression from the works of that good man. Whether the sentences which are copied word for word were originally in- serted within inverted sommas by Mr Charles we can- not say. It they were, it is a pity that they were net so reproduced in the present work. We fully expect that ere long a second edition of the "Life and Lettersfof the Rev Thomas Charles" will be called for. It would be a great misfortune that any flaws should appear in that edition. We deem it, therefore, our duty to point out that some mistakes and misprints, occur here and there throughout the work. Taking the work as a whole, it is full of literary grace and finish. The object of our criticism is to make, if we caD, the volume still more perfect. The errors of the press are plentiful, and evince great carelessness on the part of the printer. We are not going to single these out; they are plain enough to the ordinary reader. If the worthy author could not conveniently superintend the work in its passage through, the press, he ought to have aopointed some competent friend to do so. Then there ought to be uniformity of spelling in a work of this sort. The author frequently uses long sentences, the meaning of which is often obscure. Short sentences are far more frea from ambiguity, and less liable to grammatical mistakes. We hope the author will think of this in any future edition that may be demanded. Some few commas and full stops should exchange places. Some sentences in the book are written as if the author were in too great a hurry to be careful. Such blemishes are never found in the writings of men who have achieved a literary success. There are a few other spots in the work which resoect for the author constrains us to hint at. They can be easily corrected in the next edition, and the work made perfect and complete as a biography. The work covers the busiest and most interesting I period of Welsh religious history, and is written with a freshness and go" which indicate a practised ham1. The result i« a narrative of remarkable vivacity, force and beauty. The style is easy, flowing, graceful and popular, and cannot fail to take the graceful and popular, and cannot fail to take the reader's attention. The book has the solidity of an I historical record and a philosophical inquiry into the causes of dissent. To the christian reader it pos- sesses the human interest of a drama or a novel. Mr Hughes is not a man who takes a superficial view of events. He dips down deep into the religious life of the time, and by eloquent little fragments of evidence drawn from different sources sholVs the real condition of the people, and how that condition was affected by the action of Mr Charles; The book also contains short biographical sketches of Griffith Jones of Llandaowror, the Welsh educa- tionist of that day of Howell Harris, the Welsh lay preacher; of Peter Williams, the Welsh Biblical Commentator; of William Williams, the Welsh Keble; and of Rowlands of Llangeitho, the great We: a "I revivalist. The important part played by these good men is discussed in a style of much liter. ary grace. Places, situations, and incidents are sketched with freshness and vigour, and with some- thing approaching to a photograph manner. The dif- ferent scenes in Mr Charles' life, the different places he visited, the different men that became his fellow- workers, are presented, and the reader is cairied easily and pleasantly aleng to the conclusion. We would strongly recommend all our readers to make the acquaintance of Mr Charles. This they can do by reading the work under review. The love of books," says Mr Bright ''is something like a personal introduction to the great and good men of all past time." This is true enough, and we venture to urge those who would wish to have a personal introduction" to Mr Charles, and pass an hour or two in his society, to purchase the work before us. His "Life and Letters" cannot but inspire feelings of solemnity and tranquility. There is a skiliul grouping of th-s chief facts in the life of this remark- able man found in the book, and all the scenes through which he passed are invested with the charms of novelty. The English reader will be able to see how really innate and deeply seated the love of the Bible is among the humblest classes in Wales. Literature has now become an indispensable requi- site of social life. It is not only the cheapest, but the best and most refining pastime we can have. The reader of Mr Charles' "Life and Letters will find that work a perpetual fountain, supplying streams of mental refreshment, of religious instruc- tion, and heavenly wisdom, which has been garnered up by the author for the pro,it,of successive genera- tions of men. We hope the writer will continue to pursue his literary vocation, and we look forward still to being made yet more Mr Hughes' debtors.
