The House, to which belongs a Pew in the Parish Church, has been erected with due regard to cemfort, is in very excellent repair, well fitted up with Cupboards and other Conveniences, and contains Four good Bed- rooms, Parlour, Kitchen, Back-Kitchen, and Pantry.

AT a MEETING of the Inhabitants of Cardiff, held in the Guildhall, convened by the Mayor for the purpose of considering the Reports of her Majesty's Commissioners on Education in Wales, and of pro- nouncing opinions thereon, C. R. VACHELL, EsQ., M.D., IN THE Chair, It was proposed by the Rev. W. Jones, seconded by the Rev. Evan Jones, aud carried with one dissentient, That in the opinion of this Meeting the Report on Education in Wales, lately presented to her Majesty's Government, exhibit a greater desire on the part of the Commissioners to make out a case for the inteiference of Government in the Education of the people, than to furnish correct inlormatiou with reference to their real condition." Proposed by the Rev. Evan Morgan, seconded by the Rev. D. It. Stephens, and supported by the Rev. Thos. Thomas, and carried with one dissentient, "That this Meeting deprecates the employment of Commissioners for investigating into the Educational state of Wales, who were all utter strangers to the Lan- guage of the People, and, in Religions opinions, opposed to the vast majority of the population. It declares that the Reports of those Commissioners are for the most part made up of information derived from partial sources, and based upon unwarrantable conclusions and isolated oc- currences and that throughout there is evinced in them an inveterate disposition to exaggerate the defects and conceal the virtues of the Welsh People. This Meeting, therefore, condemns the said Reports as unworthy of collJidence uujust in their bearings upon the inhabitants of the Principality, and calculated to mislead her Ma- jesty's Government." Proposed by the Rev. David Jones, seconded by the Rev. Lewis Powell, and carried unanimously, "That a Copy of these Resolutions be sent to Lord John Russell, signed by the Chairman on behalf of the Meeting; and that they be advertised in the 'Times,' 'Principality,' Monmouthshire Merlin,' and itid Merthyr Guardian' Newspapers." Proposed by Mr. Williams, seconded by Charles Vachell, Esq., and carried unanimously, "That the Thanks of this Meetiuij be given to the Mayor of Cardiff, for his kindness in convening this Meetiiig, and for the use of the Town-hall." Cardiff, Feb. 29th, 1848. THE PUBLIC MEETING AT THE TOWN-HALL. To the Editor of the Cardiff and Merthyr Guardian. SIR, ——— MANY of your readers are aware of a Public Meeting having been held in the Towii-hall, at Cardiff, oil Tuesday, the 29th ult., for the purpose of passing judg- ment on the Reports of the Commissioners of Inquiry into the State of Education in Wales, I attended that Meeting and in the commencement of it felt it my duty to correct a statement that was made by one of the speakers, which was, that the Minutes of Council, of 1846, embodied the whole of Sir James Graham's Bill on Education, which I positively denied. From a conscious sense of duty, I also opposed the 1st and 2nd Resolutions. After the whole of the Resolutions had been disposed of, I begged permission of the Chairman to address the Meeting for five minuter, but was positively denied. One side of the question had only been heard but so fearful that five minutes' explanation would affect the inflam mable speeches that had been made,—so fearful that a little water should he applied to these flames (for the torches had been fetched from Manchester, Pontypool, and Tredegar to light them), that it could not be tolerated. But through the medium of your valuable paper,1 shall have the privilege which I was then denied. In the first place, I am a lover of fair dealing the speakers, in general, con- demned the Commissioners that they had not dealt fairlv • but they themselves pursued the same course, and did not give the whole truth. They accused the Commissioner (Lingen) of being a Churchman, and on that account of being partial. Let any one read the Reports of the Public Schools in Carditf, and they will immediately gire the lie to that assertion. One grand argument a<'aiust Mr. Lingen was, that he applied to the Catholic Priest of Cardiff for information, and no one else would do for him • but for the speaker to make a handle of this was most unfair: Mr. Lingen did not apply to the Catholic Priest for general information, but with regard to the Irish population of the place (and who was better qualified to give it 1) see page 370 of Report. If Mr. Millea put any. thing into that information that Mr. L. dirf not ask for he could not help it. There was a great deal said about Mr. Lingeu running down Sunday-schools and Sunday- school teachers; but there was nothing said about what he stated in favour of well-conducted Sunday-schools. The meeting was led to suppose he said nothing in favour of Dissenting of Wesleyan .schools let me refer them to page 5 of the Report, and they will find he holds up as examples the Capel Mair Sunday-school, the Penygroes Sunday-school (Independents), Narbeth Sunday-sch.ioi (Baptists), Mittbrd Sunday-schools (Independent and Wesleyan), Bridgend Sunday-school (Wesleyan), and Cardiff Sunday-school ( Wesleyan). I further believe it was the design and desire of the Commissioners to give the real state of things among us, with a view to have these things removed that was ob- jectionable. We may not like to hear the truth, but inaiiy of the evils they represent are notorious, aud pre- vail to a great extent, and it is my opiniou that nothing but a good, sound, enlarged, secular, and religious educa- tion will remove these evils. It was my intention in the five minutes I asked foi, to endeavour to disabuse the mind of the Meeting of the very strong feeling that was endea- voured to be got up respecting a most amiable gentleman, Mr. Lingen (who I had the pleasure of attending during his examination of two schools in this towu), and who, I believe, was well qualified for the important office as- signed him, and to request the Meetiug, as far as possi- ble, to get a sight of the Reports themselves, and not depend on the isolated parts of them that had been pro- duced at the Meeting, that they would coolly consider are these things so 1 I was informed by a respectable Gentle- man of our Town that he had himself seen many of those degrading circumstances that had been referred to with his own eyes. I should have also stated my sorrow at the Speakers taking up so many trivial circumstances for the purpose of making impressions 011 the audience, and for taking such a one-sided view of the Reports, in not laying them fairly before the Meeting. 1 also must state, it is my conviction that it is not only the degraded state of Wales, and the Commissioners' H,eporr.s, tile de- sign of these Meetings had in view, but it is to oppose the proper authorities in endeavouring to raise the mass of the Population of England and Wales to that position in Society that they ought to be raised to, by putting them in possession of a far superior education than they have ever yet had the chance of. I am a Welshman, and 1 hope 1 shall see (if not spared on earth fiom Heaven) the People of Wales well Educated but it will not bt done (it we think with one of the Speakers ou Tuesday even- ing) that we are now come to tne top of the tree and we want no help. I have for the past 24 years done all 1 could to promote Education in this Town, and by the Grace of Uod assisting me, I will continue to do so i- ill my body with my charge lay down and cease at once to work and live." One word of caution. Beware of those men who are doiug all in their power to prevent the people from being well Educated. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, WM. PRICE. Cardiff House, Maijch 1, 1848, I TO LET, from 25th March inst., YSTRAD, a convenient FAMILY HOUSE (with or without about 25 Acres of useful Land), situ- ated half-way between CAERPHILLY and the QUAKER'S YARD.

Howquas AND Mowquas TEAs.-The reputation of these Teas is now so thoroughly established, that it is unnecessary to dilate upon their peculiar qualities. They have always commanded a great sale, and B.

Roast and Grind their Coffee by powerful Steam Machinery, peculiarly adapted to the purposes, and produced by the first engin- eering talent of the day. Further aids and improvements have become indispeusable from the enormous accumu- lation of Orders received, and the determination enter- tained by B. H. & Co. of supplying the whole of the United Kiugdutn with their unrivalled Teas and Coffees. 'i heir plans are now matured, and they are ready to exe- cute orders to any extent, with the utmost piomptitude. The extensive celebrity which their Articles have ac- quired, in a comparatively shott period, is quite unpa- ralleled in the anuals of trade, and affords an unequivocal proof of their extraordinary excellence.
