MACHYNLLETH. ABOARD OF GUARDIANS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13TH. Present-Messrs John Hughes Jones (in the chair), Edward Hughes, David Evans, L. P. Davies, U. Owen, Griffith Owen, E. Pritchard, David Evans, cslerk, and E. Gillart, acting clerk. Mr T. LI. Murray Browne, Local Government Board in- spector, was also present. < Qut-Telief.-The following out-relief was adminis- tered during the past fortnight —Machynlleth dis- trict, per Mr T. Thomas, .£2510s lOd, to 119 paupers; Itennal, per Mr John Jones, = £ 34 15s, to 146 paupers Darowen, per Mr David Howell, < £ 52 5s 2d, to 258 paupers. „ The House.-The Master reported that there were 34 inmates, as against 46 in the corresponding fort- -sdght last year; 34 vagrants had been relieved, as against 43 in the corresponding fortnight. Vagrancy.—The Master stated that the Aberyst- wyth Board of Guardians had instructed their work- house master to allow vagrants remaining for one mght to bring their tickets of admission to Machyn- lleth. Pauperism in 1he Union.—Mr Murray Browne said that the tables were now prepared showing the posi- tion of the unions in North Wales, and he found that ^Machynlleth showed a slight improvement; they were better than Festiniog and Carnarvon, but they "Were still worse than a great many other places. They lad spent .£1357, while in the corresponding half- year ending Lady day the expense was < £ 1488, which was about X100 less, and which was a large sum saved to the ratepayers. The expense in the in-door relief was also diminished by about .£100, making a total diminution of £ 200; but still they were low down in the list. In Machynlleth union 5 per cent. of the people were paupers, that was five out of every :1.00, including Lord Londonderry and everybody else, "»ere paupers, which was more than half as much again astheaverageofpauperisminEnglandandWales. He saw no reason why this state of things should exist. The Chairman said there were other unions in North "Wales equally as bad there were only two-Forden and Hawarden-in the whole of the district that came up to the average.—Mr Murray Browne admitted that it was so, but Wrexham came very near to the average. Machynlleth was better than some, and "worse than others.-The Chairman thanked Mr 35rowne for his remarks, and pointed out that the guardians did not like to be cruel to the poor, and draw down upon themselves their curse, which was a terrible thing to do.
MARRIAGE OF MISS SARAH G. C. GRIFFITHS. Any uncommon event in the lives of the Reverend Canon Griffiths, rector of Machynlleth, and his family, would be taken advantage of by the good people of this town to show the esteem and respect in which they are held by their neighbours, and there- fore it will naturally be inferred that the marriage of a daughter of the rev. gentleman, especially when it occurs under most auspicious circumstances, would le hailed with more than ordinary interest and satis- faction. Such was the feeling displayed on Wednes- day, when Miss Sarah Georgina Corbetta, youngest daughter of the Reverend Canon and Mrs .Griffiths was joined in the bonds of holy matrimony with the Rev E. J. McClellan, second master of the eollege at Llandovery, and fifth son of the late Capt. IStTcGlellan, formerly of the 10th Royal Hussars. It was apparent that something agitated the Machyn- llethites from early morning, as flags and streamers "were hung out of the principal houses in the town, aaotably among them being the offices of Messrs Howell and Evans, solicitors, over the door of which -was the kindly wish of Long life and happiness to Mr and Mrs McClellan." At the entrance to the graveyard of the parish church a large arch of ever- green had been erected, in the centre of which was the motto, Llwyddiant i'r par ieuanc," and on the -other side "May God prosper the happy pair." SSmilH-r evidences of good will were shown in different parts of the town, notwithstanding that there had parts of the town, notwithstanding that there had been no general preparations for rejoicings on an assuming scale. The display was a spontaneous ex- pression of the respect in which the bride, her parents, and kin are held by those among whom she has been going in and out during the greater part of -her life, and certainly there was a genuine heartiness about the whole proceedings which could not fail to please and cheer the recipients of so many evidences of the unmingled esteem in which they are held by those with whom the Canon and his family have lad so much in common for so many years past. At the entrance to the vicarage, there was another arch erected, with an inscription of good wishes on behalf of the happy pair who were to play such an important part in the proceedings of the day. The bridegroom, accompanied by his best man, Mr P. Lewis, of Llandovery, arrived at the church shortly before eleven o'clock, and soon afterwards Considerable stir and commotion waR excited upon the arrival of the youthful bride, who entered the sacred Irailding leaning on the arm of her father, and followed by her bridesmaids-Miss Griffiths, sister of the bride Miss Millie McClellan, niece of the bride- groom, Miss M. Howell, Miss Edith Protheroe, Miss Mary Jones, and Miss Maud Griffiths, cousin of the fcride; the train-bearers were Miss Agnes Ida Lewis, Uandovery, niece of the bride, and Master Herbert Uoyd Jones. At this time the church was filled with a moat attentive congregation. The bride was attired in a beautiful flowing xobe composed of white Poult de Soie trimmed with Ximerick lace flounces, she also wore a garniture of orange blossoms, a syringa wreath of similar flowers, a tulle veil fastened with a diamond brooch, the gift of the Marchioness of Londonderry. She carried a magnificent bouquet, also the gift of the noble Mar- ehioness. The bridesmaids wore skirts of ivory lace, three of them having bodices of Ottoman silk, and the other three bodices composed of lace; they also -wore wreaths and sprays of pink heather, and car- riedbouquets of the same flowers. The bridegroom presented each bridesmaid with a lace hankerchief. JNiss Lewis, the youthful train-bearer, was attired in a dress of Mauresque lace over cream satin, and had a spray and wreath of pink-dipped daisies; she also wore a. gold and coral brooch, the joint gift of the bride and bridegroom. The dresses worn by the fcride and bridesmaids were supplied by Mrs Deakin, of Shrewsbury. At the service the officiating clergymen were the jRev J. B. McClellan, principal of the Royal Agricul- tural College, Cirencester, brother of the bridegroom, assisted by the Rev — Roberts, Fron Rev Edward Edwards, Rhiwlas; and the Rev R. G. Prothero. Mr Orlando Davies, the organist, played some brilliant anusie during the arrival of the wedding party, and immediately they were arranged, the hymn "The Toiee that breathed o'er Eden," was heartily sung by Sy the congregation. The bride was given away by ler father, and the solemn vows having been impres- sively plighted, the party adjourned to the vestry for the purpose of signing the register, the organist in the meanwhile playing the Wedding March." A beautiful bouquet was presented to the bride at the church by Mr and Mrs Evans, Pendre, Miss Evans, Kiss Williams, Fronygog, and Miss Ballard. All along their course down the aisle the bride and bridegroom were plentifully bespattered with rice, a proceeding which was again renewed when on their way along the carpeted path to the carriages which were in waiting to convey them and their friends to the vicarage, where The wedding breakfast was laid out in the drawing -room. This was a most recherche repast, all the good things of the season having been provided in abundance and the tables were most temptine-ly laden The following were the guests entertained: —Mrs and Miss McClellan, Rev J. B., Mrs and Miss Emily McClellan, Dr Thomas, Llandovery, Dr and Mrs and Miss Ida Lewis, Llandovery, Mr C. P. Lewis, Mr J. Thomas, Llandilo, Mr Arthur Lewis, Mr Phelps and Miss Darlington, Mr, the Misses, and Mr J.

Gillart, Miss E. Protheroe, Miss Hughes, Miss Maud Griffiths, the Rev J. Griffiths, the Rev R. L. and Mrs Protheroe, and the Rev J. Owen. The wedding cake was most handsome in design, and was supplied by -Volland, of Chester. Breakfast concluded, the healths, future happiness and prosperity to Mr and McClellan were very heartily drank, and the bridegroom responded in a few well-chosen remarks. One or two other toasts were also given and well received, after which the bride and bridegroom left -their friends in order to leave Machynlleth by the 1.25 pin. train for London, from whenee they will continue their honeymoon tour to the continent, and they certainly carried with them the good wishes of a large circle of friends. The bells of the parish church rang out merry peals during the day, and a great number of people crowded the platform at the Railway statkm in order to see the happy pair safely «>n their pleasant journey. Puringthe afternoon, Mrs Griffiths had an "at at the Rectory, among the invited guests Deiftg' Mr and Mrs Wynne Ffoulkes, the Misses Gil- Pritchard, Miss Jones, Glas- coed, Mr R. and M? E.

LADIES HOME MISSION ASSOCIATION. A sale of work on behalf of the Additional Curates Society was made by the ladies forming the local branch of the above e ssociation on Tuesday after- noon. It was intended that the sale should have been held on the Lawn Tennis Ground, but a down- fall of rain in the morning prevented the undertaking being carried out there, and it was decided to hold it at the Old Assembly Rooms, Great Darkgate-street. The stalls were very nicely arranged, and the room was thrown open at two p.m., when there were a fair number of visitors present. The refreshment stall was presided over by Mrs Pugh, president of the as- sociation, assisted by Mrs Jones, North-parade, Miss C. Bonsall, Fronfraith, Miss Roberts, 23, Marine- terrace, and Miss Edwards, Caerleon House. The flower stall, on which there was a very beautiful as- sortment, was superintended by Mrs Morgan, Nant- ceirio, and daughters, and Miss Cosens, Bronpadarn. The stall containing the work of the ladies was ad- mirably arranged, everything, both useful and orna- mental, being shown off to the best possible advan- tage. The ladies in attendance here were Mrs Cosens, Mrs B. Ellis Morgan, Miss Acmes Gilbert- son, Miss Bassett Lewis, Miss Green, Miss Parry, Llidiarde, and Miss Nicholls, Queen's-road, and they were materially assisted by Mr B. E. Morgan and the Rev J. H. Davies. During the whole of the after- noon there was a fair attendance of purchasers, as was shown by the fact that upwards of J227 was realised in the course of a few hours. It has now been decided to hold such a sale annually, and this being but a branch of a complete organization, the goods remaining unsold are despatched to another branch, thereby augmenting the funds of the association.
BOROUGH MAGISTRATES' COURT. Wednesday. Present-Mr John James (in the chair), Dr. C. Rice Williams, Messrs Philip Williams, J. W. Szlumper, and Peter Jones. DRUNKENESS. Richard Jones, tailor, Llainygawsai, not appearing to the charge against him, a warrant was issued for his apprehension. Thomas White, shoemaker, was charged by P.C. 14 with being drunk and disorderly in Terrace-road on Thursday; he was soliciting alms. Defendant had been previously convicted within the past 12 months. -Fined 10s and costs, or 14 days. William Jefferies, jeweller, was charged with a similar offence, on the evidence of P.C. Daniel Jones, on Sunday morning on the Terrace.-Fined 2s 6d and costs, or seven days. A ROW ON THE TERRACE. Thomas Sherlock and Joseph Francis Armitage, who were represented by Mr Ravenhill, were charged with being drunk and creating- a disturbance, late on Saturday night, on the Marine-terrace.—Major Lewis deposed hearing a noise late on Saturday night, close to his window, and looking through saw a man in the centre of a crowd flourishing his arms and shouting; he went out of his house as soon as possible, and saw the defendants further down surrounded by a crowd, one (Sherlock) lying on the ground, the other being on a seat. Sherlock was helped to a seat, and some water was brought to him. Serjeants Evans and Morgan shortly afterwards arrived.—Ellis Edwards was called, and he corroborated Major Lewis's evi- cence as to the disturbance, and stated that they (de- fendants) were wanting to fight two young men from South Wales, who offered them a gallon of beer if they would leave them go.—The following witnesses were also called and gave evidence John Williams, sailor; P.C. Daniel Jones, who deposed to charging Sherlock with the offence, and conveying him to the lock-up; P.S. Evans, who deposed to assisting P.C. Jones, said, in reply to Mr Ravenhill, that the wound which Sherlock had was not at all serious, simply a blow on the head, causing a lump.-Each of the de- fendants were called and gave evidence, the charge so far being heard against each defendant separately, consequently they were allowed to give evidence as witnesses in the other's case. They corroborated the previous witnesses, admitting that they had some liquor, but were not drunk, and that they only created a disturbance in their own defence, some strangers being the assailants. Sherlock said that he had after the disturbance was over, gone to the beach and called for a boat from the smack to which they belonged, and when he returned to the Terrace the constable arrested and took him to the Police Station.-Henry Sherlock deposed to sending a boat to the shore on hearing a call for it.—The Mayor, to Sergeant Evans Would you have summoned these defendants if they had simply been in this drunken state, without having created a disturbance?" "No. I would not have locked them up but for the row."— The bench dismissed the charges against both de- Mr Superintendent Lloyd said that tie unucio^a they were hearing one case only-that asrainst Sher- lock, and objected to the charge against the other defendant being disposed of with it.—Mr Peter Jones, on behalf of the bench, said they had their clerk's opinion upon it, and they had resolved upon hear- ing the two charges together, as the evidence in both cases was so closely interwoven with each other. -Mr Philip Williams suggested that the police should exercise more sharpness on the Terrace, as he had seen in the newspapers that disorderly scenes often occurred there.—Mr Szlumper, in repudiating the suggestion, said, Oh, you must not believe anything you see in the newspapers! I do not believe there is a town anywhere better looked after than Aberyst- with." FURIOUS DRIVING. Evan Morgan, butcher, Ffrwdganol, Llanrhystid, was charged with the above offence on the 8th inst., at the Southgate. Fined 40s and costs. Daniel Rowland, butcher, Cnwcunduoer, Llanrhys- tid, was also charged with a similar offence, at the same time. Fined 10s and costs.-Both charges were proved by P.C. 30. BEGGING. Harry Powell, a pedlar's son, of Trefechan, was charged by P.C. Jones with begging in Pier-street, and George Powell, his father, with aiding him.—Dis- missed:; the next time the boy appeared to be sent to the reformatory.
CHURCH AND CHAPEL. The Society for the Protection of Ancient Build- ings are appealing for funds to preserve from further decay the interesting little chapel of Llandanwg, near Harlech. From the sketches circulated with their letter,, it appears that the church is a small building about 50 feet in length, on the sea-shore, about two miles from Harlech, of which it was an- ciently the parish church. The nave and chancel were continuous, forming one chamber without a chancel arch, though the timbers of the two roofs were differently treated, and there was a chancel- screen of oak. Of the existing fabric the chancel is the best preserved. It was lighted by three windows, one north and south and one east The re- pairs recommended by the society are, that the tops of the walls should be made good, the fallen timbers of the nave, as far as possible, replaced, new rafters, &c., provided, and the roof of the whole building covered with local slates bedded in mortar. Beyond this, shutters will be provided to the windows and iron ties placed across the building where required to pre- vent the wall from being thrust outwards; and it is distinctly to be understood that the subscriptions made in consequence of jfehe appeal are made on the understanding that nothing beyond what has been recommended by the society will be done. A sum of .£80 is wanted to accomplish this preservative work. We cannot always support the procedure of the society, but are glad to be able to do so in this case. -Builder.
TREGARON. EXCURSION.—About 150 excursionists from here availed themselves of the opportunity of visiting Aber- ystwyth at a reduced rate of one shilling to and fro on Friday last, being the occasion of the Church Festival. WEATHER.-The weather here is delightful and visitors are constantly arriving. A heavy shower of rain accompanied by flashes of lightning fell on Tues- day morning. Owing to the increase of English visitors, an English service is being conducted in Church, for which purpose the Misses Evans and Jones, Waunfawr Lodge, and North-parade, Aber- ystwyth, with their usual kindness have presented the choir with about 150 English hymn books (Ancient and Modern). This is not the first of the many pre- sents these kind ladies have given to the Church. ACCIDENT.-It is very seldom an accident is re- corded to have taken place on the Manchester and Milford Railway, owing, perhaps, to ti e watchfulness exercised by the company's servants, but last Friday evening, the 8th inst., when the last train with a great number of empty coaches, from an excursion from Aberystwyth to Llandyssul, with three trucks and two engines, were coming up from Trecefel Bridge towards the station, an axle of one of the trucks gave way and went off the rails, capsized and tore the rails for a distance of about 50 yards. A few barrels were hurled a short distance from the trucks. A number of workmen repaired the road in a few hours.

School Attendarce. -William Morris, Taliesin, labourer, summoned by John Jones, school atten- dance officer for Llancynfelin, for neglecting to send his child to school, was fined 5s. Elizabeth Jones, Pantgoch John Jones, Talybont, labourer; and Margaret Edwards, Penlone, Taly- bont, were summoned by Daniel Hughes, attendance officer for Ceulan, for neglecting to send their chil- dren to school.—In default of future regular atten- dance, the first and last defendants will have to pay a fine of 5s each, and the other case was adjourned for the production of a medical certificate. Animals Stmying.-Richard Joel, Rock House, Taliesin, was summoned for allowing animals to stray on the highway.-P.C. Jones said that on the 29th of last month he was on duty at Ynyslas-road, and saw between Goitre and Penpompren farm two cows and five pigs straying, some of which belonged to the de- fendant.-He was fined Is and 9s 6d costs. David Roberts, Goitre, Taliesin, summoned for a similar offence, was fined 2s 6d including costs. Anne Jenkins Pentrebach, Llanfihangel Geneu'r- glyn, was summoned on the information of P.C. Hughes, for allowing a cow to stray on the highway near Dolbont railway bridge on the evening of the 17th ult.-Fined 2s 6d including costs. Cruelty to Animals.—David Jenkins, Furnace, blacksmith, and Mary Evans, Furnace, servant, were summoned for this offence.—Morgan Jones, Ynys- fach, Scyborycoed, said that on the 26th of last month the defendants went down to the common, between five and six in the evening, where his cattle were. He watched them, and he saw Jenkins send- ing the girl round the cattle, and then she was keep- ing them in. The man commenced beating them, and one cow ran from the others, whereupon both defendants drove it into the peat ditch. Witness and others were quite an hour getting the cow out; she was quite fast, and could not get out without assis- tance. He believed Jenkins intended to kill the cow. -John Evans and John Lewis gave corroborative evidence.—Jenkins was fined 20s and costs, and the charged against the girl was dismissed. The defendants were then further charged with doing damage to the complainant's cow to the extent of 20s.-The evidence given was similar to that in the last case, and the male defendant was ordered to pay £ 1 damages and 13s 6d costs the case against the girl was dismissed on payment of costs. Drunkenness.-Frank Johnson, Penybank, Llan- fihangel Geneu'rglyn, and George Hall, Taliesin, glovers, charged on adjourned summonses with drunkenness were fined, the former, 3s 6d and 9s 6d costs, and the latter 5s and 9s 6d costs.-The cases were proved by P.C. Thomas Jones.
TALYBONT. The Church choir, to the number of forty, attended the Choral Festival, at Aberystwyth, on Friday week, and took part in the services. They were conveyed in a waggon kindly lent for the occasion by Mr J. M. Davies, Penpompren.
SAD DEATH AT NEWTOWN. At Montgomeryshire Infirmary, Newtown, on Fri- day morning week, about four o'clock, the matron was awakened by loud screams at the rear of the building. On going down she found that an in- patient, Mary Meredith, who was suffering from nervous debility, had thrown herself from a window in the women's sick ward at the top storey of the building-a height of 50ft.—on to the gravel walk in the garden. Her head had sustained frightful lacer- ations, and she died in great pain about an hour af- terwards. On the previous evening she appeared in good spirits, and the cause of her committing the rash act is unknown.
THE RECTORY OF DOLGELLEY. The important living of Dolgelley, vacant by the appointment of the Rev Canon Lewis to the Deanery of Bangor, has been offered by the Lord Chancellor to the Rev William Williams, B.A., rector of Llan- fairtalhaiarn, and we understand it will be accepted by him. Mr Williams entered St David's College, Lampeter, in February, 1871, and in October of the same year gained a J230 scholarship. In 1872 he was Bates Prizeman, which is the highest honour the College can confer. He was placed alone in the first class, and gained a Classical Prize in 1873, and in the following year took the degree of B.A. His first curacy was that of Lampeter, whence he removed to Oswestry. At the end of 1876 Sir Watkin Williams- Wynn offered him the Vicarage of Llanuwchllyn, which he held for three years. Through his exertions Llanuwchllyn church was provided with an organ, the church and churchyard were improved, and the congregation and communicants greatly increased in number. In 1880 he was promoted to the rectory of Llanfairtalhaiarn by the Bishop of St Asaph, and toolroom in £ 5 and extended the chancel of the parish church and the vestry at a cost of about .850. He succeeded in collecting a sum of £ 250 with which a beautiful new organ was purchased for the parish church, and a few days ago a new mission church, which was built by him at a cost of .£700, was opened at Pont-y- Gwyddel, a part of the parish about two miles from the parish church. He has also established a read- ing room in the village, which has been a great boon to the people. Mr Williams is regarded as a moderate High Churchman, is very musical, and has been the means of improving the service in every church which has been under his care. He is a powerful and earnest preacher in English and Welsh, and a warm supporter of the Welsh Church press. He has been a diligent contributor to Yr tiaul, Y Cyfaill Eglwysig, and Y Llan for several years.

HOLLOW AY'a OINTMENT AND PILLS.—Outward innrmitiM.—Before the discovery of taeee remedies, many cases of sores, nlcers, icc., were pronounced to be hopelessly incur- able, because the treatment pursued tended to destroy the strength it was competent to preserve. and to exasperate tho symptoms it was inadequate to rtmov*. Holloway's Pills exert the most wholesome powers ersr the unhealthy fl. sh or skin, without debarring the patient from fresh air and exercise, and thut the constitutional vigour is husbanded while the most malignant ulcers, abcesses, and skin disease; ar.) in pro- oess of cure.

INCREASED VALUE OF WATER POWER. MACADAM'S VARIABLE TURBINE. THIS Wheel (which is now largely in use in England, Scotland. and Ireland) is the only one yet invented JL which gives proportionate power from both large and smill quantities of water. It cm be made for using a large winter supply, and yet work with equal efficiency through all variations of quantity down to a-fifth, or even less if required. It is easily coupled to a stexin engine, and in this way always assists it by whatever amount of power the water is capable of giving, and therefore saves so maeh fuel. This Turbine is applicable to all heights of fall. It wcrks immersed in the tail water, so that no part of the fall is lost, and the motion of the wheel is not affected by floods or back-water. These Turbines are at work in nearly every county in England. Apply to MACADAM BROTHERS & CO., BELFAST. DEVIL'S BRIDGE HOTEL. (W. J. WILLIAMS, PROPRIETOR.)
