The opinions of Mr Stuart Rendel, M.P., and a letter from the pen of Mr Pugh, M.P., a -on Mr Rendel's opinions, in regard to the College, are published in this week's issue of the Observer. The laxity of discipline which the late master "of our union workhouse had latterly allowed to exist among the inmates has had a bad effect upon adults and children, and the new master is finding his office not to be by any means a sinecure. At a meeting of guardians on Monday, the house committee reported that they had ordered three of the lads to be birched for offences closely borderingon insub- ordination. They bad, Fenian like, joined together in solemn compact with the express intention of disregarding all authority, on the giound that "they did not want a new master." There are many who would prefer to shirk all discipline, but still a little wholesome punish- ment soon brings them to more tractable be- havioui, a result which the rod will peremp- 1 torily secure among these youngsters. Another difficulty the master bad to deal with was the habit which had too long been allowed of al- lowing the older people to leave the house and roam about the town at their own sweet will, without leave. It is not desirable that paupers should have any reason for entertaining the suspicion that the house is a prison but those who have seen, as we have frequently, old men and old women, aye, and young women, return. ing to the workhouse in a stite of intoxication, will agree that some constraint should be put upon such characters. There are others again upon whom any hard and fast line will be a hardship, as they never abuse the privilege and the pleasure which an occasional visit to some of their friends must be. The master and matron will do well to be careful and discreet in carrying out this rule, otherwise they may do much to hinder the policy which the board is acting upon, viz., to get all aged and isolated paupers into the house, where they are much more comfortable than they can possibly be on a miserable pittance of two or three shillings a week.
LOCAL AND DISTRICT NEWS. Mr Handley's band has commenced playing, and is giving satisfaction. THE Pn: R;-Mr Palmer, Queen's Hotel, eom- menced his season's entertainments on the pier on Monday evening, when there was a large attendance of visitors and others. Mr Tom Wilson is likely to be again as great a favourite as last year, his songs attracting most favourable criticism. RENT AUDIT.—The tenants on the Abermaide estate paid their rents at the Talbot Hotel, on Wednesday. In the afternoon they sat down to an excellent spread, provided by Host and Hostess Jones, under the presidency of Mr L. P.rPugh, M.P., Mr Williams, the agent, occupied the vice-chair. A very pleasant and harmonious evening was spent. EMIGRATION. — Mrs Jones, Chalybeate-terrace, daughter of Captain Thomas Watkins, and niece of Capt Griffiths, Lewis-terrace, left here for America on Thursday morning, where sbe has gone to join her husband. On Friday morning, Hubert, youngest I son of Mr Thomas, Prnparke school, took his de. parture from here, intending to settle in some part of our Australian colony. THE THEATRE.—Miss Emma Rainbow's company I is drawing good houses to the Rink, and the fact that the attendance is increasing each evening is a proof that the performances are worthy of patronage. On I another occasion we shall refer to the play in detail. The dancing and acrobatic movements of the Brothers Haytor deserve special noliee. Their limbs are won- derfully made. The vocal and instrumental music is also of a high class. CAMBRIDGE EXAMINATION.—We find that in th Cambridge University Gazette of last week, appeared the name of Miss Stuart Rendel, as having taken a first-class in the second part of the previous examina- tion or "Little Go."

EXCURSION.—From seven to eight hundred excur- sionists arriv ed here, by special train on Monday morning, the visitors hailing from Bridgnorth and neighbourhood. Unfortunately, the weather was not very propitious, but notwithstanding this the boat and beachmen did a brisk business between the show- ers, the excursionists seeming determined to enjoy their outing even at the expense of a drenching. DEATH OF AN OLD INHABITANT.—Mr John Davies, Trefechan, one of the oldest inhabitants of this town, died rather suddenly on Wednesday morning. The deceased had only been ill for a day or BO, suffering fromlintiammation. For many years he had been in the employ of Alderman John Jones, mayor, and proved a valuable servant. He was a consistent member of the English Presbyterian church in this town, and was very mneh repected by all classes. LLANDOVERY SCHOOL.—Mr Arthur Hill, at present a papil in this school, was list week elected to the Classical Scholarship of .£80 a year at Jesus College, Oxford.

MR. STUART RENDEL, MP., AND THE COLLEGE. REPLY BY MR. L. P. PUGH, M.P. House of Commons Library, June 25th, 1883. My dear Humphreys-Owen,-The deputation had the following reply to-day from Lord Carlingford and Mr Mandella. :— 1. Governme' t have declined to give grants to two Colleges, and no more, in Wales. They will not recognise a third College under any circumstances. 2. The arbitrators have accepted, and are therefore bound by. the reference of the North Wales Sites Committee, an,i that reference excludes Aberystwyth. It entrust* to the arbitrators the duty of deciding which of various towns in North Wales" is preferable. The arbitrators will not go beyond the reference and include Aberystwyth. 3. With the Government, however, rests the ultimate deci- sion whether the College for North Wales shall be in North Wales or not: that is to say whether it shall remain at Aber- ystwjth as at present, in accordance with the temporary arrangement made at the instance and advice of the Depart- mental Committee (which temporary arrangement carries with it a grant equally temporary), or whether the College shall be transferred to which ever site in North Wales may be Preferred by the arbitrators.. 4. In this view Government (i.e. the Education Department represented by the Lord President and Vice-president) but not the arbitrators, will fully consider the case of Aberystwyth as may be submitted byits friends either in person or by document, or both, and the reception given to the deputation is an earnest of the desire of the Government to give a fair hearing for Aberystwyth. 5. The >ympathy" of Lord Carlingford and Mr Mundella is freely accorded to Aberystwyth in respect of its past history, and present position, and Lord Carlingford dellires to record a full tribute of honour to those who have created and fostered Aberyswyih. (I fear this is the jam that hides the dose). a. Nevertheless Lord Carlingford does not wish to conceal from the deputation, or that the deputation should shut eut of their siffht the very important circumstance that an overwhelming majority of North Wales is bent upon the College of North Wales being situated in North Wales, and Welshmen ought to be ablo to realise the probable effect of so decided a preponderance of local feeling upon a Welsh question. That is alL Bxeat Aberystwy.h t It appears to me that Aberystwyth is landed in exactly the position I anticipated, i fear the local friends have ontstayed their market and completely over-measured the strength of their case. I submit that they should have, at the very outset shown to Government the uniairne«s to aiid-Wales of the pro- posed arbitral; division ot Wales into North and South, for the purpose of the grant, and have done so before the North Wales Site- Committee had fairly established, by its actiTity, the exr-lusiye claims of North Wales That they should have pointed out to Government the extreme hardship 01 Govern- ment grants being used to their disadvantage-that is for the creation ind support -f colleges, which, if not distinctly rival would, at any rate, of nbces.ity weaken the hands, and tend to drain the resources ef AberystwytliThar they iiould have urged that, if it were for the good of entire Wales that Aber- ystwyth should be not only ignored but subjected to the com- petition of subsidized colleges, the Government should at least offer some solatium or alternative to Aberystwyth, and help towards reserving all that was of value to Wales in the present institution by some pre-arranged scheme. In short, Aberyst- wyth should, in my view, hxve bestired it,elf at once, and made terms with its adversary while in the way with him. Now it is far more difficult to do so. For the arbitration is close upon us. I he fund in North Wales has grown -te splendid propor- tions, and almost every s b-criher to it is thereby made a pledged oppcnent of any college out of North Wales. Moreover the surest way to failot getting your due back from an unwil- ling or an embaragwd debtor is to hang back at first and then demand more than your due. He will always pin you to your illegitimate demand, and defeat you upon it to the exclusion ofyourjuat rights. It is all ver.i well for advocates to be sanguine and to carry their clients with them by high pretensions on their behalf, but it is net "business." The interests of Aberystwyth de- served more cautious handling. They are more than strictly local. There is much of general piinciple and equity at stake, and I am, as all must be, sincerely affected by the harshness of the situation, and the seeming malice of fortune. Moreover, I think I see beneath the surface of this struggle between Aberystwytli and Bangor much that I would rather riot write about at present- much which must lead one to earnestly de- sire that wherever the second college for Wales might be, there should be no third college, and that Aberystwyth should be duly, that is powerfully, represented in the :second college rather than fall into a narrow sphere and weaken or warp the North Wales College while languishing herself. I cannot help hoping that all who were present to-riay have carried away the same impression as myself, and are willing to look facts in the face, and make provision for what is so likely to happen. It is plain that many of the best and most Influential friends of Aberystwyth will withdraw their support from it if, after all, it attempts o continue as a third college. What is to tie ths alternative! and is that alternative to be considered and provided -or in conjunction with Government now, and in connection with the consideration ot the entire question of the claims, advantagos, and possibilities of Aber. ystwyth. I do not allege any right to offer these remarks, but I think I may say t at in making them I am not simply wise after the event. I know the mk ofsPIHuing to presume. because I am sure someone should have the courage to compel attention to a disagreeable prospect I must ask pardon in any case for writing in great haste, and with no mincing of words, for I don't want to miss the post, and time presgp*.—-Tour* very truly, STUART RESDKL. To the Editor of the Aberystwyth Observer. Sir,-It was with much surprise that I this morning saw in the Oswestry Advertiser a long letter from Mr Stuart Rendel, addressed to Mr Humphreys-Owen, on the subject of the deputation to Lord Carlingford on the after- noon of the 25th. The Editor, it seems, was requested to pub- lish this letter, and I therefore scanned it somewhat closely, and read it more than once in order to find out the reason why its publica- tion should have been desired. The reason, as I conjecture, is to be found iji the following paragraph—"I cannot help hop. ing that all who were present to-day have car- ried away the same impression as myself, and are willing to look facts in the face, and make provision for what is so likely to happen. The supporters of the Aberystwyth College have proved that they are williHg to look facts in the face. I also trust they will make provi- sion for what is likely to happen (with regard to which there may be a difference of opinion), by straining every nerve to increase the suc- cess of their College, and so strengthening their position against the time when the Government will, as promised by Lord Car- lingford, consider all the representations made on behalf of Aberystwyth, just as they will consider all that are made on behalf of any of the towns included in the reference to the ar- bitrators. But I hope and trust no one else who was present carried away the same im- pression as Mr Stuart Rendel. It must needs be a very defective impression in which the passage in Lord Carlingford's reply I have re- ferred to—the very pith of the reply to the de- putation—finds no place. I must also take other serious objections to the paraphrase of Lord Carlingford's reply with which the letter commences, and though I am quite willing to make all allowances for the great haste in which Mr Stuart Rendel must have written, and his anxiety not to lose the post, I am sorry he did not miss the post, and sleep over the matter, and consult the re- ports in the papers yesterday morning, before closing his letter to Mr Humpifreys-Owen. The paraphrase is divided into paragraphs; and it will be convenient that I should refer to them by their numbers. 1. This contains no reference to the fact of Lord Carlingford having stated that there was no question of three Government-aided Col- leges in Wales, and he did not think that had been suggested that day. As Mr Stuart Rendel well knows from having been present at two preliminary meetings, it was never in- tended to raise the question that day at all. 2. It is important to bear in mind Lord Carlingford's emphatic statement that he and Mr. Mundella were there repre- senting the Government, .absolutely inde- pendent of any question of arbitration. In view of the promise above referred to I do not see that the supporters of Aberystwyth have any reason to regret their exclusion from the arbitration. 3. I do not think Lord Carlingford said that with the Government rested the ultimate de- cision whether the College should be trans- ferred to North Wales, or that he suggested it could be done without an Act of Parliament. Still less do I think he so referred to its trans- fer to whichever site might be preferred by the arbitrators, for if the Government had the power to transfer it, and thought proper to do so, they would, I feel sure, only transfer it to one of the places mentioned by the Depart- mental Committee, and those are Carnarvon and Bangor alone. 4. This is the paragraph in which one might have expected tofind the all-important promise referred to above. 5. When Lord Carlingford says that he sincerely sympathises with Aberystwyth I quite accept the statement in the spirit in which it is made, and I feel sure that the more Lord Carlingford learns of the facts the deeper and the more active will his sympathy become. When we want "jam" we shall be inclined to took to Mr Stuart Rendel rather than to Lord Carlingford for a supply of that com- modity, and I have no doubt we shall have it cheap. 6. Lord Carlingford no doubt pointed out that we were apparently opposed to the vast majority of opinion in North Wales, and this passage is the one which I suppose Mr Stuart Rendel here refers to. It immediately pre- ceded the promise I have more than once mentioned. Lord Carlingford was then refer- ing to the Chester Conference, and though I do not think he said anything as to our being able to realise its probable effect, yet I think we are well able to rate it at its proper value. This is all; Exeat Aberystwyth has a melo- dramatic ring, but I venture to think it is at least premature thus to announce the extinc- tion of the Aberystwyth College. Don't holloa until you are out of the wood" is a good maxim. The North Wales Cojiege floats in the air of promises. The Aberystwyth Col- lege is an accomplished fact. Promise (Bangor) is a good horse, but Performance (Aberystwyth) is a better. I will say nothing as to the very severe stricture Mr Stuart Rendel is pleased to pass upon those whom he describes as the "local friends of Aberystwyth beyond this, that I am sure they will alt agree with me, particu- larly those in Montgomeryshire, in regretting that they were not earlier favoured with the advice and co-operation of Mr Stuart Rendel. Reading between the lines, I think we may still hope for his assistance, and we shall be prepared to welcome it. Meanwhile we must, I suppose, be content to hope that we may, by the sanguine advocacy of a good cause, counteract the" business" of our opponents, and break up the unholy alliance between Mr Rathbone and the Dean of Bangor. I am, sir, yours, &c., L. P. PUGH. Abermaed, June 27th.
SERIOUS CHARGE OF SHOOTING. At a special court held at the police station on Thursday afternoon, before Dr R. D. Gilbertson, Thomas J. Owen, Talybont, of no occupation, was charged with shooting with intent to do grievous bodily harm to John Morgan Hughes and David Lewis, at Talybont. Deputy Chief Constable Lloyd stated the facts of the case, as borne out in the following evidence:— William Williams, Llettyllwyd, parish of Llanfi- hangel Geneu'rglyo, firm servant, said he was in Talybont on Monday night, the 25th instant, with John Morgan Hughes and David Lewis. There were two ether young men there, named David Jones and Richard Jenkins. Between ten and eleven Jenkins and Jones went to the door of John Williams's house to call a girl. The house is near the yard of the prisoner. They came back to the turnpike road, and in doing so closed a gate leading to the house, and by so doing made a noise. Prisoner came out to the yard, and asked them what they wanted in his yard, and he then said, You wait a bit, and I'll settle you." Prisoner, then went through a side gate to the back of his house, and iuto a little out-house, where he made some noise as if loading a gun. He then came ont to the road, and said, "Look out." Witness and his companions were then about three or four yards from accused's house. He had a gun in his hand, and they got frightened, and went down to the pine end of the storehouse, which is about 28 yards from prisoner's house. Witness and the servant at Tymawr (John Felix) sat down on some planks. David Lewis and John Morgan Hughes were standing in front of them. Prisoner then aimed a gun at them and fired. Witness saw the flash from the gun, and Lewis said, I believe I am shot," and Hughes said the same. The prisoner was the man who shot them and he did so from by his doorstep. Witness and bis companions then went to Abraham Jones's house, behind the storehouse,to see what injury they had re- ceived. Hughes pulled up his trousers to show his leg, and witness saw holes in it and blood; and they saw the mark of one shot and blood. Hughes was shot in the arm as well. David Lewis went to Mr Boandy, Dr Rowland's assistant, and witness went with Hughes to his house. Mr Boundy was called in ito see him. Witness afterwards saw the prisoner at the door of Hnghes's house, and he asked him why he did such a thing ? He said he did not think of doing anything more than frightened them. Witness asked him why he fired shots, and he said there were no shots at all in the gun. P.C. 18 said he was a constable stationed at Taliesin He received information of these young men being shot on Tuesday morning, and in conseqnence of enquiries he mado he apprehended the prisoner. He saw Hughes that afternoon, and found him in bed. His leg was bandaged up, which was pulled off., and witness saw several holes above and below the knee. In company with the Chief Constable and the Deputy Chief Constable, he saw Hughes again on Wednesday, and he was notable to appear that day. On this evidence, the prisoner was remanded to the next petty sessions at Tre'rddol on Thursday. Prisoner asked that bail might be allowed so that he should instruct an advocate. Mr Lloyd objected on the part af the police, and the magistrate refused the application, remarking that they did not.know what might be the result of the injury.

The defendant had left home before the summons was served, and the case was adjourned for a week CHARGB OF STEALING. Elizabeth Jones, Mountain Ash, domestic servant. was charged with stealing a zC5 and .£10 bank notes, In this case the defendant was hysterical, and her condition was such that she was unable to plead. Sergeant Evans said be arrested the accused on Friday last on a charge of stealing from the house of Mrs Jones, 42, the Terrace, a.£5 and iHO notes. On enquiry, he ascertained that she had changed a iilO note on the same day at a certain shop in the town. The bench then remanded her till three o'clock. The prisoner was again brought up at the police station, at three o'clock in the afternoon, before Mr Isaac Morgan (in the chair), Dr Rice Williams, Messrs John Rees and John James. Margaret Jones, the prosecutrix, said she lived at 42, the Terrace, and the accused was ic her service until last Friday as a housemaid. She had in her bedroom some money kept in a mahogany work-box. There were two notes, one for jJ10 and the other for ..£5. There was also gold there. The box was kept locked. The accused bad given witness a month's notice to leave, and on the night of Thursday last she asked to be allowed to go at the end of a fortnight. Witness gave her permission to do so, and paid her wages, and she left on the 21st. On the morning of the 22nd, witness opened the box referred to with a key, and missed the bank notes. She then sent for her son (Mr Peter Jones) and in- formation was given to the police. Thomas Collins, an ironmonger earrying on business in Great Darkgate-street said the defendant called at bis shop about eleven o'clock on Friday morning, and said she was coming for the box, (re- ferring to a box she had selected on the previous Wednesday). She then tendered a note, aayinge Clin you change me a Q5 note," at the same tim banding him a bank note, which he took to M David Howell, next door, without examining it, to get it changed. Mr Howell took it to his desk, and brought back ten sovereigus. Witness went back to his shop, and asked her if it was a note for £ 5 or £ 10 which she had given him, and she said .£5. By this time Mr Howell had come into the shop, and hearing the accused saying it was a £ 5 note said "No, it is a JEIO note," and at the same time showed it to her, and gave her .£5. Witness bad given her the change after paying for the box. She thanked Mr Howell, saying that she had bad it from her mother, and she would know about it. David Howell, draper, Great Darkgate-street, confirmed the evidence given by Mr Collins. The bank note produced was the one be received from Mr'Collins, and he had Initialed it. The prisoner, in rspiy to the usual question, pleaded guilty. Sergeant Evans repeated the evidence be had already given at the Town Hall. He met the aQ- cused in Queen's-ruad, and told her the charge, and took her into custody; She did not then make any statement. She was searched at the police station, and in money X3 6s 11 id was found upon ber. He afterwards ascertained that her boxes were at Tre- fechan, and on securing them he found a namber of new articles, which sba admitted having pur- chased out of the money she had stolen. Among her keys he found one that would fit the look of the box in which Mrs Jones kept her money. On the Saturday following she made a statement with regard to another person, saying that she would not have taken the money had she not, been induced to do so by another girl, whose name she gave. Mr Isaac Morgan said there was.25 8s 2d not ac- counted far, and it would be desirable they should know what bad become of the money, as it might influence the sentence upon her. He asked defen- dant if she would like to explain for the difference but she declined to, say anything. Mr Peter Jones said that hitherto the girl bore a good character, and his mother wished to recom- mend her to mercy. The beneh, taking into aceount the recommenda- tion of Mrs Jones, sentenced prisoner to two months' imprisonment with hard labour.. The prisoner, on hearing the sentence, again be- came hysterical, and was led to the cell, where she commenced singing hymns, apparently utterly oblivious of her surroundings. Thursday.

A committee of "good and true" men was organised, Dr Jones being the ohairman, and Mr Benjamin Williams secretary, and about JE55 was subscribed. The town was- en fete on Saturday. Triumphal arcbes spanned the streets, flags, ban- ner's, complimentary mottoes, and streamers of all colours and devices were to be seen at every turn, and the church tower also was not forgotten with bunting. The bride and bridegroom arrived at 6.4 p.m., and were met at the station by the Abergyn- olwyn brass band, committee, and hundreds of friends. On alighting from the carriage the bride was presented with a beautiful bouquet of. flowers by a daughter of Mr B. Williams, stationmaster, about four years of age. The bride acknowledged the compliment and kissed the child. Mrs Price was escorted to the carriage by the chairman of the com- mittee, and after both bride and bridegroom had taken their seats, the horses were taken out, and they were drawn by an enthusiastic,crowd to their home amidst the shouts of the multitude, firing of cannon, ringing of bells, Ac. Mr Price suitably ac- knowledged the high compliment to himself and wife, and thanked all who had taken part in the proceed- ings. He would at some future time hope to repay them all. A veey pretty arch was erected at the en trance to the house, on which were some nice mot-" toes. The band continued to parade the town, and at ten o'clock a display of fireworks took place in the Cricket Field, at the back of the Corbet Arms Hotel. Great credit is due to all concerned in carrying out the rejoicings in such a satisfactory manner" and in such a short space of time. The poor were not for- gotten on the occasion, bread, tea, sugar, &c., being freely distributed to the most deserving.
