HOLLOWAY'S PIUS.- With the darkening days and changing temperatures the digestion becomes impaired, the liver disordered, and the mind despondent unless the cause of the irregularity be expelled from the blood and body by an alternative like these Pills. They go directly to the source of the evil, thrust out all impurities from the circulation, reduce distempered organs to their natural state, and correct all defective and contaminated secretions. Such easy means of instituting health, strength, and cheerfulness should be in the possession of all whose stomachs are weak, whose minds are much harassed, or whose brains are overworked. Holloway's is essentially a blood tempering medicine whereby its influence, reaching the remotest fibre of the frame, e tfects a universal good. WATERS'S QUININE WINE for Sixteen Years has been universally admitted to be the best Tonic known, and a useful and agreeable accompaniment to Cod Liver Oil. We can bear personal testimony to its value as a tonic."—Standard. Agent for Llangollen: J. Rowlands, Wholesale Grocer, &c., Chapel-street.

(235) BECKETT'S PARIS BLUE.—The marked superiority of this Laundry Blue over all others, and the quick appreciation of its merits by the Public has been attended by the usual result, viz., a flood of imita- tions the merit of the latter mainly consists in the ingenuity exerted, not simply in imitating the square shape but making the general appearance of the wrappers resemble that of the genuine article. The Manufacturers beg, therefore, to caution all buyers to see Reckitt's Paris Blue" on each packet.—158a. FLORILINE !— For the Teeth and Breath.-A few drops of the liquid "Floriline" sprinkled on a wet tooth-brush produces a pleasant lather, which thor- oughly cleanses the teeth from all parasites or impurities, hardens the gums, prevents tartar, stops decay, gives to the teeth a peculiar pearly whiteness, and a delightful fragrance to the breath. It removes all unpleasant odour arising from decayed teeth or tobacco smoke. "The Fragrant Floriline," being composed in part of honey and sweet herbs, is deli- cious to the taste, and the greatest toilet discovery of the age. Price 2s, 6d., of all Chemists and Per- fumers.

A RATIONALIST PRIEST.—In a season of drought, a priest in the neighbourhood of Choisy, near Paris, was entreated by his parishioners to hold a series of special services to pray for rain, as his brother priests all around had done. "My friends," said the pastor, "trust me, and be easy in your minds. Since all the surrounding parishes have offered up their prayers for rain, if they obtain what they want we shall be sure to have it also, for we are in the centre and if they do not get what they want, we may as well save ourselves the trouble of asking, for there is little chance of our succeeding if they fail."
FARMERS ATTACKED BY A BULL. On Saturday night a black bull, which was being prepared for the Royal Agricultural Show, made a furious attack upon three Pembrokeshire 1 farmers, near St. David's. The stock fixed to the ] nose ring having broken, the brute gored to death Mr. Morgan Jones, Trenewydd, ripping the g stomach open dashing at Mr. Phillips, of Cwm- j urlig, the animal broke his leg twice, and fractured £ several ribs. Next he attacked Mr. Thomas, of Cruglas, who was tossed three times. Mr. Thomas ( seized the bull's nose ring, and took the first £ chance of escaping. The other men crawled out } of the way. Mr. Morgan died in half an hour, and Mr. Phillips is not expected to recover.
DENBIGHSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. These sessions commenced on Thursday, when ( the following magistrates were present:—Mr. Thomas.Hughes, chairman Major W. Cornwallis West, Lord Lieutenant; Sir W. Grenville Williams, Bart. Mr. Robert Blezard, Mr. R. G. Johnson, Mr. J. F. Jesse, Mr. P. H. Chambres, Mr. C. S. Mainwaring, Captain Arthur Mesham, Rev. Richard Henry Howard, Rev. B. O. Jones, Mr. A. O. Walker, Lead Works, Chester; Mr. James Goodrich, Mr. W. Corbet Yale, the County Treasurer, Chief Constable, &c. TRIAL OF PRISONERS.—FRIDAY. The business of the sessions was resumed, to- day, before Mr. Thomas Hughes (chairman), Major West, and Mr. R. G. Johnson. The Grand Jury sworn were Messrs. Edward Humphreys (foreman), George Byford, John Davies, ^Wm. Davies, John Davies (Ty'nywern), Edwd. Evans, Wm. Lloyd, John Roberts (Ruthin), Thos. Jones, William Kellett, Wm. Eaton, Jas. Pendlebury, Morris Roberts, Lewis Thomas, Jas. Taylor, Henry Williams, John Owen Williams. The chairman congratulated the jurors upon the very little business to be done, and upon the decrease of crime in the county. The cases heard were the following:— EMBEZZLEMENT. William Hall, Warwickshire, charged with having stolen £10 at Denbigh, pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to six months' imprisonment. LARCENY. John Riley, charged with having stolen certain articles at Wrexham. Defendant, who was out on bail, did not appear. A telegram was received that he was coming to Ruthin by rail from Carlisle. Thomas Flood, Manchester, who was out on bail, was charged with having stolen certain articles, the property of Thomas Savage, Wrexham. Mr. Higgins appeared for the prisoner, and Mr. Muspratt for the defence. Several witnesses were heard on both sides, and the jury found the prisoner not guilty, and this concluded the business of the sessions.
MERIONETHSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY, JULY 3RD. Before Colonel Tottenham (in the chair), H. J. Reveley, Lewis Williams, Griffith Williams and Dr. Edward Jones. The grand jury present were :— Messrs. Griffith Evans, Cynfel (foreman) David Evans, Typridd; Evan Evans, Gesail; Hugh Evans, Pengwern; Griffith Griffiths, Braich- yrhenllysg John Humphreys, Towyn Da,vid Jones, Cwmcelli; Evan Jones, Black Lion, Towyn; John Jones, Perthycuttiau; John Jones, Cilcemmes Morris Jones, Ysguborwen Thomas Jones, Doldynewydd; Thomas Jones, Towyn; David Lewis, Bryncrug; John Lewis, Fronfraith Lewis Lewis, Bronffynnon Lewis Lewis, Pontfathew; William Lloyd, Brynll wyd; John Morgans, Ynys Mill; Owen Owen, Hendre'; John Price, Dolgoch Mesach Price, Ty Mawr; Thomas Seaton, Towyn; John Wynne, Brynymor. In addressing the grand jury, the chairman called their attention, as farmers, to the fact that pluropneumonia had broken out on a farm near Corwen and advised them, and all other farmers, to inform the nearest police immediately that a disease attacked their cattle,, as, besides laying themselves open to a fine of Y,20 by not doing so, the magistrates coul4 refuse giving any com- pensation to any farmer whose cattle might be killed in order to prevent the spread of the disease. The only two cases for trial were very plain and simple cases. Larceny.-Morris Rowlands, Cann Office, for stealing hemp, at Bala, pleaded guilty to the charge, and was sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment, with hard labour.-Margaret Jones, nineteen years of age, a native of Nevin, was found guilty of stealing clothing, the property of Jane Hughes, Festiniog, and was sentenced to three months' hard labour.
MERIONETHSHIRE ASSIZES. The commission for these assizes was opened at Dolgelley, on Saturday, by Lord Justice Bramwell. His lordship drove into Dolgelley in the afternoon, and was received by the high- sheriff, Mr. W. J. Beale, Bryntirion, Barmouth, the under-sheriff, Mr. W. Griffiths, Dolgelley, and the usual retinue. After opening the commission in the county hall, his lordship attended divine service at St. Mary's parish church. The prayers were read by the Rev. John Hughes, B.A., and a sermon was preached by the Rev. Evan Lewis, M.A., rector of Dolgelley, canon-residentiary of Bangor, and chaplain to the high-sheriff. The court sat at half-past ten on Monday, the business being limited to a single criminal. In his charge, his lordship remarked that he had very little to say to the grand jury. There were only two prisoners charged with one offence in the calendar, and it would doubtless be a matter of congratulation to the immediate neighbourhood that neither of them bore Welsh in names, and did not belong to the country. He believed it was not often that Wales was visited for purposes of plunder by persons from the other side of the Severn, because they found greater scope where the population was larger but, on the other hand, it might also be said that occasionally a Celtic name was- found amongst the offenders on the other side of the border. After briefly alluding to the case in the calendar as being one which would give them no trouble, he dismissed them to their duties. Charles Sheppard, aged 86, labourer, and John Moore, aged 45, tailor, were found guilty of burglary at Maentwrog, on the premises of Mr. John Richards, grocer and draper. Mr. Clement Lloyd prosecuted. Sentenced to twelve months' hard labour. This concluded the business, and the court rose shortly before noon.
FARMING AND THE CORN TRADE. The Mark-lane Express says: "The bulk of the hay crop has been secured, but last Sunday's. rain spoiled some quantity on low-lying lands in Essex. In consequence of the change in the weather, the advance towards maturity of the cereal crops has received a check. Agricultural reports are generally favourable as to the appea- rance of the wheat fields, and the growth of straw has been everywhere abundant. The plant is now so strong, and the season so far advanced, that chances of damage from future untoward weather are greatly diminished and unless the summer proves exceptionally disastrous, a yield of rather over than under 11,000,000 quarters may be looked for as the product of the home crop. Barleys have improved slightly in some districts, but the crop has been too much injured to yield anything but badly. Beans and peas present a fairly promising aspect. In other respects the agricultural situation remains un- changed. Small supplies and less demand have been the characteristic features of the trade for English wheat during the week, both at Mark- lane and in the country, but no further decline has taken place in prices. London aYerages were 46s. on 337 quarters."
ATTEMPTS TO UPSET TRAINS. Late on Thursday night week, five metal chairs were firmly fastened upon a railway of the up-line of the Glasgow and South-western Railway, near Paisley, and a seven-foot rail laid across the line, and a sleeper firmly wedged, standing upright. The eleven p.m. train had much of its flooring torn. Shortly afterwards the sleeper was replaced more firmly, so that the goods train on Friday morning was nearly thrown over the line. Two men were seen near the spot. The company on Friday night offered £100 reward for the perpetrator.
CORRESPONDENCE. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.—ED.) To the Editor of the" LlcvngoLlen Advertiser." Dear sir,—While walking on the canal bank, a few evenings since, I was surprised and greatly disgusted to see a number of young fellows from the town bathing in the canal within a stone's throw of one of the most respectable houses in the neighbourhood. Surely, the town authorities can do something to stop this indecency. It is a great pity that one of the most beautiful walks in your far-famed vale should be so neglected. On the rocks also, by the river, I am told, the same nuisance occurs daily. I do not object to bathing -far from it; but, if people wish to bathe, let them find some less public place, and not interfere with other people's pleasure by spoiling the most pleasant walks in the neighbourhood. Trusting the authorities will seriously consider the matter, I am, yours respectfully, VISITOR.
THE ANNUAL ACCOUNTS OF THE LLANGOLLEN LOCAL BOARD. Sir,-Can you kindly inform me, and many others who wish to know, what was the reason of the annual accounts of the Local Board being published this year in a paper published in another town, and not in the Llangollen Advertiser, as usual ? I fear there were some items that the Board did not care to give publicity to, or other- wise what could induce them to send the adver- tisement to a paper the circulation of which in this town is very limited. I consider it perfectly unfair to the ratepayers that the Board or their new secretary should act in this strange manner, and I feel that an explanation should be given to the ratepayers. concerning this extraordinary proceeding. If you should be unable to throw any light on the subject, perhaps the clerk of the Board will do so. Yours truly, LAMONT. July 9th, 1878. [We believe the Board had nothing to do in this case. It was all the work of the clerk, who had been dodging as to the charge of insertion for part of two days and when a price was agreed upon it was too late to be put in that week. It appears that the advertisement was bound to appear, according to Act of Parliament, in fourteen days after the audit, thus it was forwarded to a paper of which two dozen copies are sent here instead of being inserted in the paper of the town, of which there are several hundreds sold weekly in the place. The late clerk, we are sure, would never have perpetra- ted such a piece of clumsiness as this and it is our opinion that notwithstanding the publication of the balance-sheet in the said journal that the Board is still bound by law to make it more public.-ED.) ►

THE EASTERN QUESTION. THE CONGRESS. Great progress was made in the Congress during last week in matters relating to European Turkey, but it is too soon to judge whether the various arrangements agreed to are sufficiently supported by national interests to have a prospect of permanence. Austria has, however, acquired, or has been authorised to take, a very considerable amount of territory which has hitherto belonged to the Turks; but, as that district was quite indefensible from its distance from Constantinople and the numerous ranges of mountains which separate it from that city, it is probable that Turkey has rather gained than lost by the arrange- ment, which restores to her Roumelia, on the Mgeaxi Sea, at the expense of Bosnia and Croatia, on the Danube and the Adriatic. One of the most important points arranged within the last few days is that which relates to the navigation of the Danube, the great outlet of all this region towards the north and east; and it is said that the Danube is to be neutralised from the mouth of the river to the point where it leaves the frontiers of Hungary. This seems to be a good arrangement, though, without fuller explanations than have yet been given, it is impossible to tell whether it is likely to work well in all its details. The arrangements with regard to Greece are still uncertain; but it appears as if that country was to obtain very little in the new distribution of territory. Scarcely anything appears yet to have been decided with regard to Asiatic Turkey. It is still reported in some quarters that Batoum is to be made a free port; but, on the other hand, it is stated, apparently on the authority of Prince Bismark, that both England and Turkey have agreed that Batoum shall be made over to Russia and if the latter insists on the fulfilment of the contract, it is difficult to see how it can be set aside.-There is not at present any explanation of the proposed agreement between England and Turkey for the better government of the Asiatic provinces, though there are still many rumours on that subject. This, however, is amongst the most important part of the new arrangements, and until it is clearly explained and energetically enforced it is impossible to tell how it will work either for Turkey or for England. It is not even certain whether the arrangement is to be a separate one between those two countries alone, or whether it is to form part of the treaty of Berlin. All this, however, will be explained very shortly, as the treaty is to be drawn up and published as soon as it is completed. The announcement was made on Monday that a treaty had been concluded on June 4th between her Majesty's Government and Turkey, whereby the integrity of what is left of Ottoman territory in Asia Minor and its confines is to be supported against all aggression with the power and resources of the British Empire. In view of this object, the Sultan has accorded to England certain facilities and privileges, and among them the right to occupy the island of Cyprus, which occupation will be at once carried out, Sir Garnet Wolseley being'appointed the first governor. The Congress was engaged on Monday in settling the Batoum and Greek questions, and its deliberations are now regarded as practically closed except on points of detail. On Tuesday afternoon the Congress met in Berlin for the sixteenth time. The sitting commenced at a quarter past two, and closed at about five. A long discussion took place on the boundaries near Batoum. The Treaty with Turkey was the chief subject of conversation in Berlin on Tuesday. Lord Beaconsfield carries off all the laurels of the Congress in his own way, but he has managed to embitter Russia by contesting every point in the Anglo-Russian Agreement; he has completely alienated the Greeks; he has aroused the suspicions of Italy and France by his new demonstration in the Mediterranean; and he leaves Prince Bismarck and the other neutral statesmen under the impression that they have been trifled with. "No protest," says Reuter's Berlin corres- pondent, "will be made against the assignment of Cyprus to England, and all will be satisfactorily settled." The tone of the semi-official Russian, German, and Austrian journals confirms this statement. The ministerial Journal de St. Petersbourg dismisses the subject with the statement that Lord Beaconsfield simply acquired the island in order not to return empty-handed from the Congress.
PARLIAMENT. In the House of Lords, on Monday, the Lord Chancellor announced the intention of the Government to refer the Criminal Code Bill to a commisssion, as it would be impossible to pass the measure this session. The commission, as proposed, consists of Lord Blackburn, Mr. Justice Lush, and Sir J. Stephen. Replying to Earl Granville, the Duke of Richmond stated the terms of the new treaty with Turkey, reference to which is made elsewhere. The Statute Law Revision Bill and several other measures were advanced a stage before their lordships adjourned. In the House of Commons, answering the Marquis of Hartington, Mr. Cross stated that on the 4th June a convention was made between England and Turkey, giving England the Y, z!l 11 protectorate of Asiatic Turkey against Russia, Cyprus to be occupied and administered by England. Mr. John Roberts took his seat for the Flint Boroughs. In the course of discussion on the motion for going into committee on the Contagious Diseases (Animals) Bill, Sir H. Selwyn lbbetson said the Government were prepared to make the concession that, while the slaughter of all foreign cattle should still be the rule, the Privy Council should have power, in the case of Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Norway, or Sweden, to admit their cattle on it being shown to the satisfaction of the Privy Council that disease did not exist in the country, and that regulations there in force prevented the introduction of disease from other countries.

TOWYN. J WELCOME VISITOR.—One night, a short go, the manager of our gas works was ed by a sound which for a time puzzled it upon getting up and lighting a candle overed an erormous snake crawling along room floor. The reptile, which measured feet in length, and of an extraordinary iss, was killed, but we may fairly surmise 3 remainder of the night was not spent in repose. The hissing of a serpent in a in must be one of those things that most would rather be excused from listening to. CORWEN. 'TY COURT.—At this court, on the 4th inst., Homersham Cox, Esq., judge, a painful, but ieresting, case was heard. Mr. William i, of Aston-juxta, Birmingham, sued a nan of Glynceiriog, named Mr. Richard )r £ 13 10s., balance of expenses incurred in iion with the extraordinary illness of the s. Rees. The deceased was a sister of the f, and, therefore, the defendant is his -in-law. Defendant married the deceased maiden name was Mary Hughes, being 3r of Mr. Richard Hughes, Tyissaf, Nantyr) 11 16th, 1877. The parties had not lived together, and it was alleged that the a had been neglected. She was confined of )orn child on the 21st of last February, and ;al physicians who attended her were tely puzzled with her condition, and gave bo die. In the meantime her eldest brother aintiff) had visited her, and after a con- in with Dr. Jones, of Llangollen, he brought Lawson Tait, from Birmingham, to see the voman. He made a preliminary operation er on the night of March 2nd, which gave 3at relief. And' on March 30th, she was d to the Birmingham Hospital for Women, Dr. Tait made the final operation on April [er disorders were so complicated, however, e poor sufferer's strength failed her at last, e died on the 9th of April. The young who died in her 27th year, had enjoyed the jxcellent health, and had a very robust ition up to the time of her marriage and for months afterwards. The plaintiff, in his had charged, among other things, for r tickets for himself and his brother, as well her sister, which had been used in travelling n Glynceiriog and Birmingham, when the d was being removed to the hospital, and at imes; and also for half a dozen bottles of for the use of the patient while she ed at Glynceiriog. The plaintiff explained 3 reason for including these items was the int's shameful disregard for his wife, and he accused of having had an aversion to pay e farthing if he could have helped it. When les recommended the woman to have some the husband remained as inactive as a post, said, and the brother (who was then at iriog) went to the New Inn to purchase a )f the best brandy and when the woman imoved to the Birmingham Hospital the d went with the conveyance, which had been d gratuitously by Mr. Biddulph, of Chirk to Chirk Station, but he never offered to buy he railway tickets required then, and the had to buy the tickets, otherwise the (who had to be removed in her bed clothes) have been left to die at the station. The sted several hours but such is the substance plaintiff's statement and evidence. he commencement of the case, a curious uestion occurred, arising out of the following )ondence Ruthin, 16th May, 1878. -Your brother-in-law, Mr. Rees, has brought summons which has been served upon him, and consulted us on the case. We think it a very one, and we regret very much that you have been so hasty in the proceedings that ve adopted against him. There may be items ist in the account, but without going into any Llars too minutely we have advised him to ) pay you .£11 10s. in discharge, and that each should pay his own costs. We ma-ke this offer t prejudice, and if it is declined we shall, ing to our instructions, fight the matter at the Court. Yours obediently, Louis AND EDWARDS. HUGHES, Birmingham. AstoR Cross, Birmingham, May 20th, 1878. lemen,-I understand that my brother-in-law, ichard Rees, Glynceiriog, consulted Mr. Parry and another solicitor, before he came to you is very probable he has withheld some painful "om you (which he may have communicated to lers), otherwise you might not have considered hasty" in taking the proceedings in question. only chosen the lesser of two very painful evils. er, without entering into any particulars, I pour offer on behalf of your client a very fair Jasonable one, and I have much pleasure in ing it (without prejudice) on condition that he ie summons fee, 17s. Yours respectfully, WM. HUGHES. s. Louis & EDWARDS, Solicitors, Ruthin. luently the defendant's solicitor sent a cheque LI 10s. (without the summons fee) to the -if, "to settle this action and in discharge of fees and every other claim which you may gainst our client. If you decline to accept o good as to return it to us." This cheque aintiff received on account" of the claim and igh he did not accept it in settlement, he ed to return the cheque, saying, "that I L never do. I am inclined to think )me curious and antiquated notions prevail in incipality with regard to returning cheques tbout three months ago The North Wales icle people were silly enough to return a 3 for £ 21 odd to Mr. Walter Wheeler, jising contractor, of Birmingham, and luently they failed to recover but a very small 'tion of that amount." Mr. Marcus Louis, efended, argued that the party paying money he right of directing its application. His ir explained, however, that that referred to where there were various accounts between irties, and the payer had the right to say to the of which account he was paying, but in the efore the court there was only one account. ïiff had declined to accept the cheque in nent, and therefore the court could not take aeque into consideration. The case, in its ty was thereupon proceeded with. his cross-examination of the plaintiff (the mce of whose evidence we have given above) ifendant's solicitor seemed to base his defence the fact that the greater portion of the ses had been incurred without the husband's or even his sanction. In fact, no other ie was hinted at, except that the defendant poor working-man. After considerable time ieen occupied in such cross-examination, his ar cut short the proceedings by saying, This most disgraceful case that I have ever had me; a husband is in duty bound to love, h, and support his wife, especially in sickness, 3re we behold a husband standing still while fe is dying and but for the attention and ons of her brother all possible means of j the woman's life would not have been Led. And for this the brother gets nothing gratitude. I have no patience to listen to the ny more and my verdict is for the plaintiff he whole amount, with the exception of Id., with full costs to follow." Isequently a case was brought on in which Hughes was plaintiff, and Richard Rees dant. His Honour expressed regret on ng that this was another contention between Lme parties-the plaintiff in this matter being )r to the plaintiff in the other case. This was tion for £12 12s. claimed for a gold watch L had been given to the deceased by her brother, rhich had been bequeathed by the deceased to dest sister, the present plaintiff. His Honour ie felt so prejudiced against the defendant Le did not like to judge the case without the f a jury. Mr. Hughes intimated that the it-matter of this action was comprised in a ell, and he offered two documents for the to look at. His Honour, however, urged tIr. Hughes should confer with the defendant's ;or, and see if they could not come to some al arrangement. Time was allowed for this, 'hen his Honour asked if the parties agreed, sply was, No. The matter had assumed a very lS character, as the defendant persistently d having appended his signature to a written nent, produced, in which he had undertaken Pect his wife's watch and other articles as her separate property. An objection was also raised, and maintained, that Mr. Hughes should not be allowed to conduct his sister's case, as he was not a i solicitor. An affidavit from the nurse who attended Mrs. Rees at the infirmary, and to whom she expressed her wish with regard to her watch, on the day of her death, was also inadmissible, and it was imperative that the witness should give her evidence orally, and be cross-examined. The Judge asked if the deceased had died intestate. Mr. Hughes replied that there was no regular will; she had only expressed her wishes orally to several witnesses. His Honour said he could not help directing a nonsuit in this matter, in spite of his sympathies, and he thought it was fortunate for the defendant that he was not placed in the witness- box. Verdict was, therefore, entered for the defendant, without costs. TREFRIW. DESIDERATA.—Doubtless, it will be good news to many of our readers to know that the Trefriw Branch Railway has not died a natural death, as some people imagined. The matter has not, by any means, we are confidently assured, been overlooked. The directors of the London and North-Western Railway recently paid a very hurried visit to the district, during which they had no time nor opportunity to make an appoint- ment with those interested in the scheme. There is not the slightest doubt that, when the railway is made, this fast-thriving and picturesque village will soon increase to double its present size, and the good that will be done to the place in various ways will be something astounding. Trefriw, in many particulars, is a much superior place, to Bettwsycoed for visitors, still is this pretty spot much in want of special ground for outdoor amusements-for instance, good quoit and skittle grounds are very necessary, but a good bowling green is absolutely necessary, which would do an immense amount of good, and prove a better institution than all the coffee and cocoa establish- ments at present talked about. The owner of the Gwydir estate, we feel sure, would assist by giving a piece of land for this purpose to the village. We feel confident, too, that it would be well appreciated by the natives and visitors, who are really in need of some outdoor amusements, especially during the summer months. BEULAH NEAR LLANIDLOES. OPENING OF THE BAPTIST CHAPEL. — On Wednesday and Thursday week, the usual services took place in celebration of the completion of this handsome new chapel. The preachers were £ he Revs. T. Evans Newbridge, (Mon.), C. Griffiths, Cinderford, J. Morgan, Balsalag, and J. Owen, Swansea. The meetings on Thursday were held in the open air, and it is estimated that from 600 to 700 people were present, most of whom were hospitably fed by the local inhabitants. The chapel was designed by Mr. Edward Jones, of Newtown, and built by Messrs. J. Hope Owen, and John Jerman, to all of whom the edifice is a credit. The entire cost will be about Y.900, over two-thirds of which have been collected. ABERYSTWYTH. SUDDEN DEATH.—On Monday morning, a woman named Jones, the wife of James Jones, High- street, was proceeding with her household duties down stairs when she heard her child screaming. She ran up stairs and found that her daughter, only eighteen months of age, had obtained possession of some matches and set herself on fire. She ran down stairs, and out into the yard, and put the infant in some water. A woman named Mrs. Williams, aged 60, late of the Prince Llewelyn," who was sitting down at the bottom of the stairs when the accident occurred, called in assistance, went up stairs and down again, and then sat down on the stairs and said, "I am going to die," and expired almost as she had said the words. Drs. Morris Jones and T. D. Harries were soon on the spot, but could render no relief to the woman. The cause of death was apoplexy. DOLGELLEY. THE OPENING OF A NEW CHAPEL.—On Friday, June 20th, a new English Congregational Chapel was opened here, when excellent sermons were preached, that in the morning by the Rev. S. Pearson, M.A., Liverpool, and that in the evening by the Rev. Professor Thomas, Bala. In the afternoon a public meeting, under the presidency of D. LI. Lloyd, Esq., J.P., Festiniog, was held, when short and instructive addresses were delivered by the Revs. S. Pearson, J. H. Hughes, Cefn, W. Baxendale, London, and T. Mays, Nottingham. The chapel is a remarkably neat building and the collections on the opening day amounted to over £ 112. On Sunday, July 7th, a church consisting of 24 members was formed, when the Lord's Supper was administered by the Revs. D. Griffiths, pastor, and J. H. Hughes, Cefn, Ruabon. Several friends from England joined the church in commemorating the atoning death of their common Saviour. In the evening, the Rev. J. H. Hughes preached again to a good congregation and at the close of 11 the service a dozen more friends sent in their names as candidates for church fellowship. The Sunday School, which was held for the first time in the new chapel, numbered between sixty and seventy. The English friends here feel greatly encouraged. CRICKET: DOLGELLEY v. AN ELEVEN FROM LLANGOLLEN.—This match was played on the ground of the former on July 8th, and, after a most spirited game, resulted in a victory for the visitors by 47 runs, for the bulk of which they were indebted to the excellent play of Messrs. Smith and Biram, who were in capital form and for a considerable time defied all the efforts of the Dolgelley bowlers to separate them. For the home team Messrs. Morris and T. H. Roberts bowled well. The fielding also of the visitors was excellent, no chance being missed. The pitch, which had been worked up with great care, was all that could be desired. Score :— DOLGELLEY. W. Evans, b If.
