PABICJH CHURCH. —Mr. Henry Cane, who is to represent Mr. John L. Pearsou, R.A., the eminent j architect, during the progress of the works at the Parish Church, arrived here from Torquay on Tues- day. Mr. Cane, as a practical clerk of works, stands very high in his profession. ror many years actively serving in that capacity, he was the right hand man of thelate Sir Gilbert G. Scott, R.A., the greatest architect of the century. Mr. Cane's experiences, not only in this country, but on important commissions in India and the United States, have been as varied as they have been responsible and successful. He has just completed the practical superrision of the enlargement of St. Matthias Church, Torquay, now one of the moat ornate and popular churches in that delightful and fashionable watering place. Referring to the finished work the Church in the We-4 for 26th Jauuary says "No small amount of credit for the great success of the work is also undoubtedly due to Mr. Henry Cane, the clerk of workF, whose varied experience, in almost every part of the world, in things architectural, has been of the utmost value through- out the whole course of this renovation." Merthyr, and particularly its church-going population, are to be congratulated upon having so able and accomplished a. gentleman appointed to superintend the works that have been so long anticipated, and which are now so near being accomplished facts. A SECOND MEETING of the inhabitants of Brecon- road took place on Tusday evening, January 22nd. in the Mission Room. The chair was occupied by Mr. James Thomas, 23, Grawen-terraco, whc'n the ques- tion of the site of the proposed new infant school waa discussed. Mr. John Thomas, grocer, defended the action of the School Board in fixing the site 011 the Quar, and considered that the spot was a quiet and healthy one, and its distance from the main road in its favour rather than against it.—Mr. Rees Price, Park Vill, dealt a severe blow at the Board scheme, saying that Mr. Crawshay had built a splendid school about 40 years ago, in a magnificent situation on the Bryant's Field, being in a central position for Pan- tywyll and Williamstown on the one hand, and for Grawen-terraceand Castle-square on the other. They had been deprived of this excellent school owing to the action of the Local Board acquiring the projiertv fur a fever hospital, which was a sourceof anxiety and danger to the densely inhabited neighbourhood. He also pointed out that patients which had been refused everywhere else had beeu admitted to the hospital, and- iie strongly advocated its removal to some other place outside the town, where its isolation would be something more than a sham.—Mr. John Owen, out titter thought that before they could condemn the School Board they ought to be prepared with a better plan aud lay it before the proper authority without delay.—Mr." D. T. Morgan said that the School Hoard had acted in a very hasty manner aud before tixing on a site they ought to have called a public meeting in order to consult the inhabitants.—Mr. W. Davies, 13, Park-street, and several other speakers denounced the Quar site on account of the dangerous Janes leading thereto, every one of them being too narrow to admit of a path or pavement being made for the protection of little children who would be going there from Pantywyll and Brecon-road.—The meeting was adjourned until Monday, January 28th, when the chair was again occupied by Mr. James Thomas.—Jt was decided that a deputation be -ent to the District Council to urge upon them the necessity of removing [the Fever Hospital from our midst.—The deputation will consist of the following gentlemen:—Messrs. William Scott Rees Price, Park Villa Jonah Lewis, grocrr James Gilleland, Post Office; John Owen, outfitter; James Thomas, 23, Grawen-terraco: John Thomas, grocer; John lj«wis, Castle-square Job" Jones, tea dealer and — Harris, furniture dealer.
