GELLIFOR, near RUTHIN. Gellifor is situated midway between Denbigh and Ruthin, and is one of the most delectable Neighbourhoods in the Vale of Clwyd. The ullage is composed of farm houses and cottages, toost of which are shaded by the overhanging of plum, apple, and other fruit trees. Ten years ?8°» a daily school was established here, supported by the good-will of friends and neighbours, but mostly, by the Calvinistic Methodists of the place. On Friday, July 26th, as is yearly the custom, a tea party and concert was held in aid of the said School. Tea drinking commenced at 3 p.m., When a great number of persons sat to the tables at Gellifor schoolrooms to enjoy one of the most Excellent feast, prepared by the ladies of the Neighbourhood.

CLUB ANNIVERSARY.—'The Loyal Chirk Castle Lodge of Oddfellows celebrated their forty-first ^niversary at the Queen's Head Inn, Glyn, on riday, July 26th. At 12-30 the members tprmed into a procession, led by the Glynceiriog brass band. After calling at the Vicarage they Proceeded to Pontfadog Church, where the Rev. Afr. Rees, vicar, preached a suitable sermon. After service they re-formed the procession, and after calling at a few places they arrived at the Queen Inn at three o'clock. An excellent dinner Was provided by Mr. and Mrs. Foulkes, the Worthy host and hostess, in the large and commodious new club room which was opened On that day. After dinner the newly-oppointed "ledical officer of the society, Dr. Lloyd, of Chirk, occupied the chair, and delivered a few ^cellent speeches appropriate to the occasion. Ihey were responded to- by the Rev. Mr. Rees, Mr. Joseph Williams, Mr. David Roberts, and others. The remainder of the evening was spent dancing on the green in front of the inn, while the children amused themselves in the swing boats and at the shooting galleries. The society Is in a most flourishing and thriving state; a considerable increase added during the last year in funds, and in the number of members. Ten young men joined the club on the feast day, making the total number of members about 160, with a capital of over £ 1,100. GARTH. GOOD TEMPLARS TEA PARTY.—The united lodges Of Llangollen and Garth, held their annual tea Party at Garth, on the 25th July. The Lodges ruet near Trevor Hall, rat 4 p.m., when they parched in procession and stopped in front of ^revor Hall, where they sang several of Mr. Sa,nkeY'sbymns, for which they received a handsome gift from the family. After this they parched together and finally entered the Board School, Garth, where they partook of excellent ea and other dainties. The following ladies ^tended at the tables:—Miss M. B. Williams, Miss M. Davies, Mrs. E. Thomas, Mrs. C. ■Edwards, and others. In the evening at 7, an eNtertainment was given in the school-room, ^hen the chair was taken by Mr. II.

After the rendering of votes of thanks to the ladies who so ^ly attended at the tables, the meeting terminated. RUTHIN. REJOICINGS.—Subscriptions are being obtained y a committee formed for the purpose of celebrating the coming of age of Mr. Lloyd, ^erth, which takes place about the middle of August. INDUCTION OF CHURCHWARDENS.—On Tuesday ^veek, the Very rev. the Dean of St. Asaph, acting in the place of the late Archdeacon l°rgan, a visitation at St. Peter's Church, ^uthin. After divine service he received the New churchwardens of the parishes in the deanery, aNd inducted them to the office. EARLY HARVEST.—The earliest ingathering of ,°rn that has taken place in this district we elieve was that on land belonging to the mayor, ai'cus Louis, Esq., where a splendid field of oats in excellent condition was well harvested pior to Wednesday week. The crops generally N the neighbourhood seem in good condition. 10 LLANRWST. THE LITTLE DIRTY RIVER.-Attention has been called at quarter sessions to the nuisance caused by a tanyard to the little river which runs under the street opposite Paris House, and it was said that the accumulation of dirt at this place was likely to damage the bridge. If the sanitary authority for Tre'rdre and its officers were a little more active, such a state of things would not have been allowed to remain so long. The refuse from the tanyard is allowed to flow down the stream, while across the same generally are carts which prevent the refuse being carried down, so that there is always a large amount of offensive substance. Also, those bringing carts with pigs to the town clear the refuse from the carts and throw it into the river, while persons in the neighbouring houses make its bed a convenience for throwing rotten vegetables and other un- healthy things. It is to be hoped that the sanitary authority will look to this matter. THE POLICE AND THE RIOTERs.-The other evening the police officers of Llanrwst had occasion to take a person into custody, when a daring attempt, by a large crowd, was made to rescue the prisoner and to assault the police. The matter came under the attention of the magistrates, who, after thoroughly investigating the case, said they were glad the police had acted firmly during the riot, and that, at the same time, they did not act violently towards the crowd, as they might have reason to do, but that they took the matter coolly, marking out those who had acted unlawfully on the occasion. Of course the offenders were summoned, and received their deserts. MACHYNLLETH. A RIDE TO LONDON AND BACK ON HORSEBACK.— This feat was performed by a gentleman of this town a short time ago. The time, according to his own statement, he took in actual travelling to and fro was a little over six days. The horse did not appear any worse for the journey after the return, being away about a fortnight from Machynlleth. TREFRIW. BUILDING.-Calculating upon the resources of the place, persons continue building here. At the same time, it is a matter of regret that greater care is not taken to provide that the buildings shall be suitable and not a nuisance to others. There are now in course of erection within a short distance of the quay where the steamer lands two or three houses built up to the rock, and the roofs of the houses will just be on a level with a road, and will be in front of other houses. It is said of Barmouth that one house is so constructed that his neighbour can look down the chimney and see what is being prepared for breakfast below. This is likely to be the case at Trefriw, according to the present mode of building. To know what one's neighbour gets for breakfast might be highly interesting, but to have a share of the smoke of one's neighbour with breakfast is not at all what people will care for. Also something should be done to have a decent yard attached to houses. There is no lack of room at Trefriw, and persons should not be stingy in the matter of a few yards space at a part which was no good before. The Llanrwst Sanitary Authority should do the same as the Conway Authority did to Colwyn Bay- depute their power to a number of persons- at Trefriw, then there would be some control over buildings and other affairs at this very attractive spot. DENBIGH. WESLEYAN AND INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS.—On Thursday week, the Sunday schools of the Independent chapels in the town and district had their annual excursion to Rhyl, starting by train soon after eight o'clock. At Rhyl they received refreshments and were entertained in a variety of ways.-On the same day, Wesleyan scholars, teachers, and friends went to St. Asaph. They assembled about mid-day at the schools, and were conveyed to their destination in ten waggons. At St. Asaph tea was provided for them, followed by a meeting of a musical and literary character as well as some amusements. The weather was very wet and unfavourable. CHURCH SCHOOLS TRIP.-The annual treat of the Church Sunday schools scholars and teachers was arranged for last Friday, the place selected being Bettws-y-coed. A special train was chartered and the scholars were conveyed thither and back for the sum of Is. 3d; those under twelve paying 6d. only. Arrangements had been made to give them all a good tea at Bettws-y-coed and other refreshments. Every effort was made to promote the success of the affair by the committee. Messrs. R. H. Roberts, solicitor; W. Hughes, the station and the Rev. T. W. Vaughan. As a goodly number of the younger children could not go to a place so far away from home, it is, we believe intended to give them a treat at home. A DANGEROUS EXPERIMENT.—A few evenings ago one of the railway officials found a man asleep in one of the carriages of the Corwen train. He roused him, ascertained that he had been duly booked, and then left him. The train started some time afterwards, and when it had got nearly to the platform the officials saw the man deli- berately open the door, and attempt to get out of the train. His foot caught the edge of the platform, and was dragged some distance, scattering the gravel in all directions. He managed, however, to get back into the carriage just as the train got to the bridge over Vale-street, where, if he had not done so, he would have been terribly injured. It was thought that he must have fallen asleep after his ticket was examined, and awaking suddenly, imagined he was being carried beyond his station. MOLD. SUDDEN DEATH OF THE WIFE OF THE WELSH CONGREGATIONAL MINISTER, The Rev. T. Roberts, minister of the Welsh Congregational Church, Mold, was with his wife and family rusticating at Trawsfynydd. They intended to return to Mold on Thursday last, but YDydd, a Welsh Congregational newspaper published at Dolgelley that day, contained the following sad announcement, which took many by surprise:- Just as we were going to press, news arrived at our office that Mrs. Roberts, wife of the Rev. T. Roberts, Mold, suddenly died on Wednesday morning at the residence of her mother, Tyddyn Bach, Trawsfynydd. She will be buried at Mhenystryd on Saturday. We can only give a short account by expressing our regret at the loss our dear friend Mr. Roberts, and family, have sustained." Mrs. Roberts had not been over strong for some time, but her death was most unexpected. She has only 'been married to Mr. Roberts two or three years. LLANUWCHLLYN. r SUDDEN DEATH.—On Sunday evening last Mr. Thomas Edwards (Bardd Dochan), known to many as the "blind bard," departed this life somewhat suddenly. Last Sunday week he attended the Carmel Independent Sunday School, of which he was a member, in the morning, and the Ebenezer Independent Chapel in the afternoon, apparently enjoying his usual good health. On Monday as he was assisting a neighbourin0- farmer with the hay he had a fall, the results of which terminated fatally. His body was interred at the Llanuwchllyn Churchyard.

LLANDOVERY COLLEGIATE INSTITUTION. ANNUAL DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES. The annual distribution of prizes at this school took place on Friday in the college-hall, in presence of a large company, including many of the most influential persons of the district and several gentlemen from a distance. This school, which gives to Llandovery one of its chief attractions, was richly endowed by Mr. Thomas Phillips, and its buildings, which are among the finest in the Principality, were erected upon one of the fields given 250 years ago by Vicar Prichard, of Llandovery, the celebrated Welsh poet and hymnologist, for the endowment of a grammar school. The present collegiate institu- tion, as it is called, has had its periods of pro- sperity and adversity, but never attained so high a position as it holds at present, not even in the palmy days of Archdeacon Williams's warden- ship. The numbers in the school during the present term have exceeded one hundred. And this brings us to the greatest improvement effected in the school under the headmastership of Mr. Edwards, viz., the raising of the moral tone of the school and the elimination of the rough element out of it. To those who have intimately known the collegiate institution for years past, the change brought about in this respect will seem very remarkable. It will be seen from the examiners' reports that the work done during the past year has been highly satisfactory. The proceedings of the day commenced with a special service in Llandingat Church, where the Ven. Archdeacon de Winton preached an admirable sermon suited to the occasion. The warden and other clerical masters conducted the service, and the choir, consisting exclusively of boys trained at the collegiate institution, sang with considerable taste and power. The examiners were-Classics and history, Mr. J. Rhys, Celtic profession at Oxford University, and late Fellow of Merton College, Oxford and the Rev. F. J. Jayne, dean of Keble College, Oxford; and for mathematics, the Rev. David Thomas, M.A., Fellow of Trinity College, and public examiner in the University of Oxford. About mid-day the distribution of prizes took place in the college-hall, where, as we have already said, a large company was assembled, among whom we noticed the following:—Dr. Harper, principal of Jesus College, Oxford, in the chair; Ven. Archdeacon de Winton, Brecon Ven. Archdeacon Griffiths, Neath; Mr. John Jones, M.P.; Colonel Day Mr. Howell Gwyn, Dyffryn, Neath; Mr. David Pugh, Maneravon; Rev. W. E. James, Abergwili; Rev. A. G. Edwards, warden of the college, and the other masters Professor Rhys and Rev. Dd. Thomas, examiners; Mr. Edward Jones, Velindre; Mr. D. J. Lewis, Clwyncelyn, &c. Dr. Harper, principal of Jesus College, who, in the unavoidable absence of Lord Emlyn, M.P., took the chair, apologised for being found in a place which ought always to be filled by the head-master of the school. His only claim to the place was that he had been concerned in education all his life, and was now a good deal concerned in education, and certainly deeply interested in the education of Wales. (Applause). The Chairman having called upon him to do so, the Rev. A. G. Edwards, warden and head master, read THE LIST OF PRIZES.

Mr. Edwards, after reading the prizes, said That bit, I trust, shows that the school is doing honest work. It is again my pleasing duty to add another to the record of distinctions gained by Mr. Griffiths, a pupil of this school. I think it is not only an honour to Llandovery School, but to Wales, that Mr. Griffiths should, so early in his career, have been appointed examiner for the Cambridge Mathema- tical Tripos. During the last year the trustees, by the aid of Lady Llanover, have made important additions to the school buildings, and the Earl of Cawdor, in his gift of the Golden Grove Scholar- ship, has set a noble example of generosity which it is hoped that the other wealthy and enlightened friends of education will be eager and ready to follow. The various examiners then gave a very gratifying report of the progress of the institution. Mr. John Jones, M.P., rose to propose a vote of thanks to the examiners, and expressed pleasure at the rapid progress the school was making, and his satisfaction at the fact that the school was visited regularly by men experienced in the work of tuition at the universities. Mr. David Pugh seconded the motion, which was carried. Archdeacon Griffiths proposed a vote of thanks to the warden and masters, and spoke at some length of the lamentable condition of education in Wales some 40 years ago, and of the great improvement still needed in the matter of secondary education. The Rev. W. E. James, in soconding the motion, said he had long looked forward to some great central educational establishment in Wales, and had some hope that Llandovery would form the nucleus of it. The motion was passed. Mr. Howel Gwyn, in proposing a vote of thanks to the Principal of Jesus College for presiding, said he had known Dr. Harper almost since his birth, and from what he knew of him, he was very glad when he heard of his taking a post at Oxford, which would enable him to do very much for the education of Wales. Archdeacon DE WINTON seconded the motion, which was passed, and Dr. Harper, having responded. After the proceedings the Warden and Mrs. Edwards entertained a large company at luncheon, among whom were the Principal of Jesus College, the Ven. Archdeacon de Winton, the Venerable Archdeacon Griffiths, Mr. D. Pugh, Maneravon, Mr. Howell Gwyn, the examiners, Colonel Day, Captain Toser, &c. For want of space we are obliged to curtail the speeches considerably. THROAT IRRITATION.—Soreness and dryness, tick-

PARLIAMENT. In the House of Lords, on Thursday, Lord Beaconsfield returned to the subject of the capacity of the port of Batoum, and stated, on the authority of the Hydrographer of the Admiralty, that "not more than three ironclads could take up anchorage there and swing clear, even with a limited amount of cable and in fine weather." On the motion of the Premier, seconded by Earl Granville, the house adopted an address to the Queen, assuring her Majesty of their lordships' concurrence in a measure to enable her Majesty to make further provision for the Duke of Connaught on his marriage to the Princess Louise of Prussia. Progress was made with a number of bills. Answering a question in the House of Commons, Lord Sandon said he was in com- munication with the Home Secretary respecting the serious loss of life from boiler explosions, feeling that further inquiry should be made preliminary to legislation, if necessary, next session. Mr. Gladstone gave notice of his intention to move for the production of the secret agreement between Lord Salisbury and Count Schouvaloff, but subsequently withdrew the notice on its being stated that one of the Powers had objected to the publication of the correspondence. Sir C. Dilke's amendment to the motion to go into committee on the Queen's message, relative to the marriage allowance to the Duke of Connaught, was defeated by 320 to 33; and the proposal of the Chancellor of the Exchequer granting £10,000 per annum, with Y.6000 a year to the Princess should she survive the Duke, was agreed to without a division amid cheers. The house afterwards proceeded to discuss the Irish Intermediate Education Bill. A discussion on the Government's Eastern policy was again raised in the House of Lords on Monday night by Lord Stratheden and Campbell calling attention to the treaty of Berlin and the Anglo-Turkish convention. Earl Gran- ville seized the opportunity of taking the Premier to task for the terms in which, in his Saturday's banquet speech, he referred to the Opposition. Lord Beaconsfield replied, and was supported by the Marquis of Salisbury, who further defended the Anglo-Turkish convention. The debate ended in Lord Stratheden and Campbell withdrawing his motion. In the House of Commons, the Chancellor of the Exchequer said he hoped on Monday to make a statement with reference to the financial arrangements necessary to meet the additional expenditure since the budget. Mr. Cross informed Mr. Macdonald that the report of the Haydock explosion would be printed and circula- ted as soon as it was received. The Duke of Cohnaught's Establishment Bill was read a second time. The Marquis of Hartington then moved the resolutions of which he had given notice, condemning the policy of the Govern- ment in regard to the Eastern question.
A FALL FROM A TRAIN. On Wednesday night week, Mrs. Owen, the wife of the Rev. Elias Owen, St. Asaph, diocesan inspector of schools, was returning from Rhyl with her children. Whilst the train was going at full speed, between Trefnant and Denbigh, the door flew open, carrying one of the children with it. The occupants were greatly alarmed, believing the child killed. On arrival at Denbigh the engine was sent back, a gentleman accompanying the driver to point out the place where the child dropped. To their astonishment they met the child running along the side of the line making her way to Denbigh. Luckily she had dropped on a part of the line where the grass was very thick, and escaped with a few bruises
WELSH WESLEYAN CONFERENCE AT BRADFORD. Thursday's sitting of the Wesleyan conference was devoted to the consideration of the ministerial death-roll, and the usual stringent investigation of ministerial character. The names of the ministers were called consecutively, and their Christian and ministerial fidelity borne witness to by the several chairmen and missionary secretaries. During the morning sitting, the Rev. Peter Horton, of Southport, having just paid a tribute to the memory of his friend and colleague, the late Charles Haydon, dropped senseless upon the platform, and at the adjourn- ment of the conference still remained in a precarious state. At Friday's sitting at the Wesleyan conference at Bradford, there was a solemn religious service in connection with the sudden death of the Rev. P. C. Horton. In the course of the day it was announced that the Rev. Marmaduke Osborn is shortly to pay an official visit to the West Indian Islands. One hundred and thirty candidates for the ministry were reported at Monday's sitting of the Wesleyan conference, and of that number 68 were accepted for home work and 35 for mission work. The arrangement of circuits was completed.
FARMING AND THE CORN TRADE. The Mark-lane Express says-" Wheat cutting, which in the earlier districts commenced last week, is now becoming general, and reports as to yield will be received during the next ten days. Wheat seems to have improved wonder- fully in many parts of the country during the past month. The propects of the barley crop are variable and generally improving, particularly on the lighter soils, where the grain has matured badly, and the yield will certainly be light. A little rain would do no harm to roots, and favour the aftermath. Oats and beans promise fairly, although there are some complaints of blight in the latter crop. The grain trade, both in London and the provinces, has been devoid of any special feature of interest during the past week, but prices have been well maintained. The arrivals of wheat cargoes off coast, especially from America, appear likely to be small for the next few weeks, but as brilliant prospects are entertained of the crop on the other side of the Atlantic, the probability of any material rise in price here must be regarded as more or less remote. Sales of English wheat last week were 26,432 quarters, at 44s. 7d.
MR. SPURGEON AND HIS CONGREGATION. This being the 25th year of the Rev. Mr. Spurgeon's ministry, some of the leading members of his congregation have started a movement for presenting him with a testimonial in celebration of the occasion. It is proposed to collect £5000 for the purpose. In aid of this fund a bazaar will be held towards the close of the year. Mr. Spurgeon himself has expressed his desire that the whole amount realised should be devoted to church purposes, and especially to the providing a permanent maintenance for the aged inmates of the almshouses in connection I with the Metropolitan Tabernacle.

CORRESPONDENCE. (We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.-ED.) To the Eclitor of the" Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,—While taking a stroll along the road in front of Avondale, to the top of the hill, and down to the stream by Pengwern Cottage, I noticed that that part of the road known as Penybryn Vicar has been stopped by a strong fence. I mention this that the public and the Local Board, may know what has been done, and take the proper remedy. I venture to say, that the road in question has been an open one as long as any resident in Llangollen can remember; and it is disgraceful if any private individual can commit such acts with impunity If there are any walks lovelier than others about Llangollen, the general tendency seems to be either to stop them completely, or to make them practically useless. My sincere wish is that others may notice this matter in your next issue, and that the result may be, the removal of the obstruction, and the punishment of the offender. A .NATIVE.

I was then lying in ambush. presently I saw a man and woman go into the Cambrian. The two men—William Hughes and Richard Morris, who first came out, went across the road to Hughes's house. These two men are frequenters of the said public-house. The Woman whom I saw go in was Jane Hughes, and she carried something under her apron. The man who went in was Peter Morris. On seeing that they had gone in, I immediately went down and entered the house. The door was open. I found both in the house Peter Morris was sitting down •tod Jane Hughes standing. I did not see any ^wnk about. There was an empty bottle on the table. The landlord was in the bar at the time, I asked them what they wanted there. Peter Morris said he wanted nothing, and Jane Hughes Went out. I cannot say whether they went there With the intention of having drink. I did not See any about. My charge is, that the house was open during prohibited hours. The bench said that they would not endorse Jones's licence this time; but, should any such looseness occur again, it shall certainly be done. Fined 20s. and costs. Drunk and Riotous.—P.C.
