HOME & FOREIGN CHIT-CHAT The degree of doctor of music has been conferred by the University of Oxford on Mr. Bridge M.A., Mus. Bac., organist of Chester Cathedral. Mr. Bridge's father was a lay clerk, and his brother is Dr. Bridge, organist of Westminster Abbey. What has become of the Breese Scholarship? There was great talk about it years ago, but hardly a word has been heard of it since. What says the educationist, Dr. Jones-Morris, about the matter ? Now that the North Wales College has been opened, the scholarship, if it exists, ought to be utilistd. William Levy Jackson, storekeeper in the service of the Liverpool Corporation, at Llanwyddyn, charged with stabbing two men, D. Jones and John Morris, the former having since died, has been committed for trial at Stafford assizes on the charga of wilful murder. John H. Evans, a printer, was, at the Westminster Police Court, on Saturday, committed for trial on a charge of publishing a libel upon Mr. Daniel Davies, a grocer of Chelsea, Both the parties are Welsh, and the alleged libel (particulars of which we published in our last issue) appeared in a Welsh paper pub- lished in London. Mr. Vanderbilt has made a donation of £ 100.000 to the College of Physicians and Surgeons at New York, to be used as a bulding fund. The Tichborne Claimant was released from Pent- onville Prison Monday morning, and with Mr. Quartermaine East, drove to theConvict Office, at Scotland-yard, where he received his ticket-of-leave. The Guion steamship Nevada arrived in the Mersey on Saturday, with her cargo still on fire, and it was only by most strenuous exertions of the Liverpool and Bootle Fire Brigades that it was extinguished. The cargo has been almost entirely destroyed by fire and water, and one passenger is reported to have died during the voyage from fright. A serious explosion occurred on Tuesday evening at Porthcawl, a harbonr on the Glamorgan coast on board a French brig laden with coal. Three men received such injuries that they died shortly after- wards. Several others were badly injnred, one man having his leg blown off, and another having his arm shattered- The deck was blown out of the vessel. Mr. Chamberlain attended a great Liberal dem- onstration at Newtown on Saturday, and met with a very hearty reception. The right honourable gentleman travelled early in the day from Birming- ham. and received an address from the Granville Liberal Club in Shrewsbury en route, which he briefly acknowledged. At the meeting at Newtown. Mr. Chamberlain said he had no faith in the con- version of the Tory party to reform, and expressed his belief that they would repudiate it if they found a favourable opportunity. Lord Salisbury and Lord Rondolph Churchill had made a compromise on the franchise question impossible, and he could not help admiring the fortitude and detimination of Lord Salisbury, who, like Ajax defying the lightning remained unmoved in the storm he made.
CORRESPONDENCE. WE do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents.—ED.] To the Editor of the" Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,—At their recent meeting in Llangollen, the Conservatives appear to have gathered some crumbs of comfort from a contrast between the attendance at their meeting and that of the Liberals. I am reluctant to deprive them of the smallest particle of consolation, but. at the risk of appearing unkind, I must say that the comparison would have been more satisfactory to those, like myself, who had not the privilege of being present, if they had tested the matter in the old-fashioned way by show of hands, taken after a resolution hostile to the Govern- ment had been duly proposed. This they seem, judging by the report I have seen, advisedly to have abstained from doing. Nevertheless, the Conserva- tive mountain haviug been previously truly in labour, reasonable expectation anticipated the pro- duction of something more imposing than a tiny little mouse, in the shape of a couple of sociable and c Iouriess votes of thanks. Whatever doubts some minds might have entertained, the Tories have now made it clear that the Liberals may claim not only the credit of their own large and unanimous meeting, but also that of their opponents. From the Liberal stand-point, this is eminently satisfac- tory, and the people of Llangollen are to be congratulated on having attended in sufficient numbers to prevent any false impression being created, that they waver in their allegiance to the Government or the great issues now at stake. Your obedient servant, S. GREGSOX FELL. Bournemouth, 18th October, 1834.

[CENTRAL NEWS TELEGRAMS.] L LLANGOLLEN ADVERTISER OFFICE, Thursday Evening. THE QUEEN'S SPEECH. MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, I have brought you together, after a recess unusually short, in order that you may be enabled at once to give your further consideration to the great subject of the representation of the people in Parliament. I continue to maintain relations of amity with all foreign Powers. The information received from the Soudan includes painful uncertainties, but the energy, courage, and resource conspicuously displayed by General Gordon in the successful defence of Khartoum deserves my warm recognition. The advance of my troops to Dongola has for its object the rescue and security of that gallant officer and of those who have so faithfully co- operated with. In Egypt itself I am using my best endeavours to promote further improvement, and I have given my support to the Egyptian Government in the difficult financiai position in which it has been left through the failure of the recent Conference. I have to regret that circumstances have occurred in the south-western frontier of the Transvaal which demand my vigilant attention in conjunction with the Government of the Cape Colony. I am engaged in considering the means which may be required to secure the faithful observance of the Convention of the present year. Papers on this subject will be presented to you at an early date. GENTLEMEN OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS, The operations in the Soudan will render it necessary to ask from you a further pecuniary provision. The Bill for the extension of the Parliamentary Franchise will at once be introduced. In conclusion, I humbly and most anxiously trust that the blessing of Almighty God may attend on your labours.

garded in this neighbourhood, they might point Out to the magnificent celebrations of that day, and especially the large number of trades- men and others who at such a very short Notice had assembled there that evening to give a befitting termination to the day's pro- ceedings. They complained of the dulness of jrade, and that not without a cause but when he Llantysilio Hall family came down here, tuey did their utmost to throw life and vitality luto all branches of industry. If a poor family is In want, the case has only to be brought to the Notice of Mr. Aird, and timely relief will be rendered. If a fever rages in the neighbourhood, he orders instant steps to be taken to check the calamity, and to relieve the sufferers. Acts of charity and benevolence like these cannot fail to Excite the deepest feelings of respect and love towards the benefactor, and he (Mr. Rowlands) felt proud that the inhabitants of this district had so heartily reciprocated Mr. Aird's kindness by celebrating in a befitting manner the marriage of his daughter. It was evident that their hearts Were all aglow in wishing the family every success and happiness for many years to come. (Loud cheers.) This toast was also drunk with tausical honours, and with long and hearty founds of applause. Song, Eos Meirion, "My Sweetheart when a Boy," encore, Hiraeth." Mr. Fussell gave as the next toast, The town and trade of Llangollen," and expressed a hearty Wish that after the long time of depression through which the country has just passed, trade Would revive again, and visitors come to Llan- gollen in thousands, so that he would have plenty to do. (Cheers.) He begged to couple With this toast the names of Mr. C. B. Jones, Mr. John Davies, Mr. J. P. Richards, and Mr. Shaw. Mr. Jones briefly responded. Mr. John •Navies said he had been in business here for 15 Years, and he never was sorry that he had come here. He trusted that all the tradesmen would cultivate those habits of promptness and integrity, SQd show that obliging disposition towards their customers, without which they could not hope to succeed in their business. Mr. Josiah P. Richards referred to the bountiful harvest of this year as a great help to the revival of trade generally, as the difference between a good and a bad harvest represented about 60 Niilliong of money, or 500 tons of gold. With regard to the particular industry with which he Was associated, he was glad to say that signs were wanting of a slight improvement. Mr. Richards gave some interesting figures to show how important it was to the trade of Llangollen that the slate industry as represented by their pompany should be in a thriving state. Mr. Sbaw Instanced the low prices now obtained for stock, and quoted a case where a farmer who had given X10 for a cow in the spring, was only offered £ 9 for it now, and of another case where a man was offered 18 for a beast which had cost him £17 in the spring. Mr. Shaw quoted several remarkable iostanees of the kindnets and liberality of Mr. Aird, and sat down amid loud cheers. Mr. Clarke humorously introduced to the meeting the local "laureate," Mr. Joseph Jones, Penyclawdd, who recited the following impromptu verse, which was deceived with loud laugliter aud applause. Ni allwn lai na llawenhau, Gweled gwiedd mor fewr rhwng dau fryniau, A chalon pawb mewn iach hwyliau, Yn ymroi i'w mawrhau. Mr. Clarke, referring to the allusions made to the local trade, said that they could not pass by the fact that they were that evening the guests of a. gantleman who had, during more than half a century, been one of the leading and most successsful tradesmen in the town. The firm of Hughes and Roberts had given uninterrupted employment to the people when other industries were languishing. It was a pleasure to hear Mr. Richards speak of a probable revival of trade with his company. It is impossible, however, to dwell upon this ques- tion without giving due prominence to the humble endeavours made by another company to revive the trade of this district he referred to the Pant Glas Company. No doubt all would be delighted to know that the energetic managing director, Mr. F. E. Rooper, is now engaged in arranging with a company to open works at the quarry for the manufacture of brick, out of the slate rubbish. If this were accomplished, it would lend greatly to revive the trade of this neighbourhood. Mr. Clarke then proposed the "Chairman and officers of the committee, the Rev. J. S. Jones, Mr. Roberts, The Schools, and Mr. Jones, treasurer," who had shown great energy in carrying out the several arrangements connected with the rejoicings of that day. The meeting waa then brought to a close, the whole procee- dings being ofa specially interesting and success- ful character. The committee feel that special thanks are due to Mr. Roberts, Grapes Hotel, for his courtesy and kindness in allowing the use of his room to hold committees, and for the excellent arrangement connected with the din- ner which was served up on so short a notice. In connection with this most auspicious event we have great pleasure in calling attention to the special mark of favour and kindness shown by Mr. Aird towards four members of the Llango- llen Choral Society, viz., Miss Maria Williams, Messrs. Wm. Williams, James Clarke, and F. P. Dodd, who received an invitation to London to witness the nuptial ceremony, and to hear the magnificent music which had been arranged for the occasion. In addition to this, every attention was paid to their comfort during their week's stay in town, while ample opportunities were afforded them by Mr. Aird to attend the most select musical performances which are now in vogue in London. So rare a treat is not only appreciated by those who enjoyed it, but the spirit which prompted it is a direct compliment to all the members of the society. The wedding was celebrated with due eclat at Welling, the seat of the bridegroom's family, where a public dinner was held, and speeches delivered by several gentlemen, all of whom testified to the universal respect entertained towards the bride- groom. A beautiful illuminated address was pre- sented to him on behalf of the tenants and friends on his father's estate. LLANTYSILIO. There was great enthusiasm displayed here on Monday in honour of the happy event. The day was observed as a general holiday, and the whole inhabitants turned out en masse to take part in, and to witness, the day's proceedings. Two beautiful arches had been erected-one at the entrance lodge and the other immediately in front of the hall. The inscriptions thereon were, Long life and happiness to Mr. and Mrs. Bean" and" God bless the bride and bridegroom." The school children were regaled with tea, plumcake, &c., after which a large number of nuts, biscuits, &c., were distri- buted in a field close to the school. During the progress of the feast Mr. and Mrs. Bean appeared on the scene and were accorded a right hearty wel- come. The wants of the children were attended to by Mrs. Jones, The Vicarage, Mrs. Roberts, The School, Miss Polly Jenkins, Ty-issa, and Mrs. R. B. Jones, assisted by several other friends. Messrs. E. Jones, Maes-y-llyn, and J. Jones, Penclawdd, ren- dered valuable assistance with the athletic sports, which took place after tea. Later on in the evening, Mr. Hawkins, a gentleman from London, but at present in apartments at Llantysilio Farm, distri- buted a number of toys, &c., among the school children. The tea for the subscribers, friends, and the general public took place in an out-door building adjoining Llantysilio Farm. The management and supervision thereof had been entrusted to a sub- committee consisting of the following :—Messrs. H, Jenkins, T. M. Shaw, Morris Jones, H. Baines, and C. B. Jones. The cannon-firing was very satis- factorily performed by Messrs. J. Jenkins, Ty-issa, Charles Roberts, Enoch Roberts, and W. Williams. The preliminary arrangements therewith were entrusted to Messrs. H. Jenkins and Chas. Roberts, who did everything in a very creditable manner. The Llangollen Volunteer Band was in attendance, and discoursed a choice selection of music. Danc- ing was indulged in on the green sward, and kept mp till the shades of night o'ercast the scene, when sthe day's proceedings gradually came to a close. We must not omit to state that a special mark of favour was shown the children attending Llantysilio School, for, on Tuesday, a good portion of Mrs.Bean's wedding cake was cut up for distribution among them. This unusual act of kindness is much appreciated by all. EGLWYSEG-. Monday, the 20th instant, being the day fixed upon to celebrate the marriage of Miss Aird, the scholars attending the National Schools were treated to an excellent tea. with the usual accom- paniments of currant cake, &c. The weather being propitious, tea was served on the green, to the great delight of the juveniles. After grace had been sung, the gathering, numbering upwards of 100, sat down to a bountiful supply of the good things provided. The wants of the juveniles were attended to by Miss Richards, Miss Walls, Miss Jessie Hurrell, Miss Nellie Walls, Mrs. Oliver, Mrs. Evans, and Mrs. Edwards. Tea being over, the children with their friends indulged in a variety of amusing sports, under the super- intendence of Mr. Noel Richards. Prizes in money were given to the successful competitors. At intervals ringing cheers were given for Mr. Aird, and Mr. and Mrs. Bean. Cheers were also given for the ladies and gentlemen who had so kindly assisted in enabling them to enjoy them- selves. No doubt, the day will be long remem- bered by all present. GLYNDYFRDWY. On Thursday, Oct. 14th. the weather was beau- tifully fine, and early in the morning there were indications that the day would be one of unusual rejoicings and festivity in this village. Flags floated from tree tops, and the houses were decora- ted with bannerets, &c. A committee consisting of the following gentlemen, was formed to make the necessary arrangements :The Rev. G. Williams. vicar of Glyndyfrdwy (chairman). Messrs. Ed. Jones, timber-merchant (secretary), Thomas Jones, Tyceryg (treasurer), John Jones, Tyceryg, Lewis Jones, Tynyceubren, Thomas Jones, Tynyceubren, Edward Lloyd, Sun Inn, Edward Richards, Tany- bont, Wm. Roberts, Berwyn Arms Hotel, Hugh Eastick, station-master, and David Roberts, Coed lal. The proceedings began as early as nine a.m., when Mr. Haynes of Llantysilio, on behalf of Mr. Aird, distributed at the British School, where the children of the two schools had assembled, to each child a silver sixpence new from the mint, the number so distributed being 220. There was a large number present to witness the distribution of these interesting mementoes of the happy event, and at the close, ringing cheers were given by the children for Mr. and Mrs. Aird and family, and for the bride and bridegroom. The bells of the Parish Church and of the National and British Schools were rung at intervals of quarter of an hour from 8 30 to 11 a.m., and again from 12 noon till 2 30, and at frequent intervals the loud reports of the three pieces of cannon, which had been posted on the heights above the village near Ty- ceryg Farm, reverberated from rock to rock, awakening the echoes of the glens and mountain recesses of the beautifull valley of the Dee. At one o'clock the children and a large number of their friends met at the British School, where a proces- sion was formed, marshalled by Mr. W. E. Roberts, National School, in the following order: The com- mittee the Glyndyfrdwy Brass Band (under the able conductorship of Mr. W. C. Williams, British School) who, it should be stated gave their ser- vices gratuitously; the school children (National and British), carrying a profusion of flags, and ban- nerets, which added much to the effect of the pro-' cession then followed the public in considerable numbers. The procession paraded the village, as far as Berwyn Arms Hotel, the band playing, and the children singing alternately. At the Berwyn Arms the Glyndyfrdwy people were met by the Llansantffraid National School and their friends. The combined schools then sang in front of the hotel for about half-an-hour, and with the gratest enthusiasm, a number of lines composed for the occasion by a local bard-Mr. D. Jones (Dewi Ffraid), of Llansantffraid-to well-known Welsh airs, The March of the men of Harlech" and Glan Meddwdod Mwyn," printed copies of the poetry having been provided by the committee, and placed in the hands of all the children. The procession was then re-formed, and returned towards the British School, where tea. was awaiting them. On the way a halt was made in front of the Sun Inn, where the children again sang, under the conductor- ship of Mr. W. E. Roberts, National School, and Mr. Pugh, Llanstntffraid National School, respectively. On arriving at the British School, the procession dispersed, and the children sat down to tea in relays, the girls first, then the boys, and afterwards their parents and friends. The schoolroom had been tastefully decorated with ferns and flowers whilst on the walls were displayed the mottoes God bless the happy pair," Success to the bride and bride- groom," Long life to the happy pair," and the tea, which had been catered for by Mrs. Roberts, Berwyn Arms, gave the greatest satisfaction.—During the afternoon sports were held on tha top of the hill overlooking the village, in a field belonging to Mr. Thomas Jones, Ty-ceryg Farm. The sports included a number of flat, sack, and other races, tug of war, catching rabbits, &c., whilst a large number amused themselves in games of various sorts, and in listen- ing to ihe strains of the band who played at intervals.—At seven o'clock there was a public dinner at the National School, which had been nicely decorated with flowers. ferns, &c., interspersed with mottoes suitable to the occassion. Tickets were taken by over sixty persons, and upwards of fifty gentlemen sat down to a capital dinner, which had been prepared by Mr. and Mrs. Edward Lloyd of the Sun Inn. On the tables were a number of ohoice flowers, and the arrangements made for the comfort and entertainment of the guests were everything that could be desired. — -The chairman gave the toast of the Queen, which was loyally received.—The vice-chairman gave ''„the Prince and Princesss of Wales, and the rest of the Royal Family."—Mr. Richard Roberts, Dee Cottage, proposed the Bishop and clergy and ministers of all denominations.

REPORT OF THE CHIEF CONSTABLE. Major Leadbetter's report stated that crime and offences as compared with the corresponding quar- ter of last year showed a decrease of 11 in indic- table offences, an increase of 62 in offences deter- mined summarily, and X22 Os. 7d. in the value of property stolen. 71 indictable offences were re- ported during the year ending September 29th, showing an increase of three on the previous year 65 persons were apprehended, 17 of whom were dis- charged, and 48 committed for trial. 2,245 persons were proceeded against summarily, 1,509 of whom were fined, 11 whipped, two sent to reformatories. 48 bound in recognizances, four delivered to the army, 296 committed to gaol, and 94 other punish- ments. 33 public and beerhouse keepers were sum- moned, 23 of whom were convicted, 12 being for breaches of the Sunday Closing Act. Eight other persons were convicted for selling beer on unli- censed premises on Sunday. 708 persons were charged with drunkenness, of whom 62 were for Sunday drinking. The number as compared with last year showed an increase of 96. Out of 62 per- sons convicted of drunkenness on Sundays, 58 belonged to the Wrexham division. There was more apparent drunkenness on Sundays, and as drunkenness had been very much on the increase for the last two years, he feared the Act was not as effectual in its suppression as could be desired. There were 3,333 tramps relieved during the year, showing a decrease of 1,377 as compared with last year. This was a considerable decrease, though he found the public, in spite of his appeals to the contrary, still assisted the professional tramp. He also thought that the bread tickets were in many cases issued too indiscriminately and that they should as far as possible be refused to the regular tramps who were the men to get rid of. PROPOSED NEW HIGHWAY DISTRICT. In pursuance of a requisition, signed by five justices, sent to the clerk of the peace, a proposal will be made to the court to constitute the follow- ing parishes or places maintaining their own high- ways, namely-Cernioge, Maesgwyn, Treganol, Tir Evan, Tre-Brys, Gwernihowel, Clust-y-blaidd, Cwm, Hafod-y-Maidd, Llaethwryd, Llan (Cerygydruidion), Tir-abbot uchaf, Tre-foel, Tre-park, Llysan,Cysylog, Maes-yr-edyn, Cefn-post, Bottegir. Cefn Cymer, Disgarth, Llan (Llangwm), Llys-dimel, Moelfre, Nant-helog, Penyfed and Rhos-maen-brych, a high- way district. Major Mainwaring explained the necessity for the proposal, and proposed that a provisional order be made to give effect to the suggestion. Capt. Best seconded, and a provisional order was made. ALTERATION OF POLLING DISTRICTS. Colonel H. W. Meredith moved that Ruabon be the polling place for Ruabon and that part of Erbistock which is in Denbighshire-that Rhos- llanerchrugog be the polling place for the Rhos and Johnstown, and that Broughton be the polling place for Brymbo. There being no polling place known as Johnstown, that name was struck out of the resolution. Mr. Fitz-Hugh seconded, and the motion was agreed to. DRUNKENNESS AT LLANGOLLEN. Captain Best said he wanted to call the attention of the court to the orders of the chief constable that the police are to interfere as little as pos- sible with drunken excursionists, and to ask the opinion of the court on the question. He did not wish for one moment to say that the chief consta- able or the police did not do their duty to the best of their ability, but it was quite possible that even a chief constable might be mistaken-they were not infallible (Laughter.) He thought that Llango- llen was peculiarly situated, inasmuch as they had there a tremendous influx, during the summer months, of respectable people who came to reside in the town and adjacent farmhouses, and who re- mained for some two or three months. They had also a crowd of excursionists who simply visited the place for a day, and they had sometimes a ter- ribly rowdy lot,"who came in on a Saturday night and stayed till Monday, and it was this latter class of people from whom the people of Llangollen wan- ted protection at the hands of the police. Many of these excursionists came from Birmingham, and they came into the town drunk, and on one occa- sion he knew of four excursionists who were in such a condition that the person with whom they went to lodge locked them up and kept them locked up until the time arrived for them to go away again (Laughter.) What he wanted the chief constable to understand was that if people were drunk in town all day the public must have some protection from them at the hands of the police. He could assure the court that at the Bridge End it had been-it was a strong word to use-but it had been a perfect hell during the summer months There was a remedy for this kind of thing, and he thought these people who came to them from Bir- mingham—who were drunk when they came in and were drunk all day in the town, rolling about the streets-ought to be summoned. He had written to the chief constable about the matter, and he had replied to the effect that his orders were to inter- fere with excursionists as little as possible but he (Captain Best) did not speak about excursionists, but about drunken excursionists," who, if they came into the country to have a regular drunken lark," ought to be made to pay for it! On one occasion there was quite a riot in the town, and the police would have been subjected to some rough handling had it not been for the assistance of the townsmen he therefore called the attention of the court to the matter, and asked whether the chief constable should not be a little more particular in summoning these people, with the object of keeping the town of Llangollen quiet ?—The chief constable said in the event of two men quarrelling in the street he could not see that it would be bet- ter to seize a man by the collar than to try to sepa- rate them quietly. The former course might soon lead to a riot. His orders to the police were to in- terfere as little as possible, and he could not help thinking that that was the most discretionary way to manage these people. It was much better than resorting immediately to extreme measures and locking them up.-In reply to the Lord-lieutenant, the chief constable said the police could not lock a man for simple drunkenness, but they could, of course, summon him. In many cases, however, the man gave a wrong address and went off to Birming- ham or elsewhere, and nothing more was ever heard of him. He should be glad to assist Capt. Best all in his power but he did not agree that it was desirable to resort to harsh measures in these cases. Major Leadbetter then read an extract from the Llangollen paper approving of the conduct of the police on the occasion of a recent disturbance caused by excursionists, and repeated his willing- ness to do what he could to assist Capt. Best in the matter.-Capt. Best said he did not urge the strong measure of locking these persons up, but they might be proceeded against by summons and some two or three made an example of.-The chief constable mentioned several influential trades- men of Llangollen, who had testified to the discre- tionary conduct of the police on the occasion re- ferred to and had expressed their opinion that had not the police acted in the way they did, a riot would probably have been the result.—The chair- man thought that what Capt. Hest meant was that these people should be summoned not locked up. Capt. Best said he wanted some stringent measures taken to prevent a recurrence of such scenes as had beeu described.-The chairman said the matter would have to be left to the discretion of the chief constable.—Capt. Best remarked that three years ago several persons were locked up and the riotous conduct was put a stop to and-last year one man was locked up, and that also put a stop to it. He thought it would be desirable if the Great Western Railway Company were communicated with and asked to let the police know when excur- sions were going to be run to Llangollen. This would have a good effect, as the police could pro- bably be better prepared.-The chief constable said he could send more men down, of course, but sup- posing he put forty men on, would it be a judicious or discretionary proceeding to go and lock these people up because they were squabbling and wab- bling about a bit in the streets !-The chairman re- marked that probably Capt. Best had achieved his object by calling the attention of the court to the matter and the subject was then allowed to drop. THE UWCHALED PETTY SESSIONAL DIVISION. Major C. S. Mainwaring moved that an applica- tion be made to the Government for payment of the contribution towards the repair of the road within the Uwchaled Petty Sessional Division to the justices of that division until a Highway Board is formed. This was agreed upon. MAIN ROADS. Application was made by the Wrexham Highway Board to have two highways declared main roads, namely :-A road leading from the Twenty Houses, Minera. past the Talwrn, Southsea, Rhyd Brough- ton, Plascoch, Rhosddu, and terminating at the junction with the Holt-road at Rhosnessney and the branches of the road. Also a road leading from Crispin Lodge, through Summer Hill to the Minera and Ffrith main roads at the Cymmau Lodge, of the length of two miles seven furlongs and six chains. It was decided to instruct the County Surveyor to report on the subject to the next Quarter Sessions. BRIDGE OVER RIVER GWENFRO AT SOUTHSEA, NEAR WREXHAM. The County Surveyor submitted a plan and estimate of the cost of erection, in compliance with the order of the last Court of Quarter Sessions, for approval, and asked for a contribution towards the cost of erection (in pursuance of section 22 of the Highways and Locomotive (Amendment) Act, I87S), not exceeding one half the cost—the other half will be borne by the Wrexham Highway Board. A grant of £ 100 was, on the proposition of Lieut.- Colonel Hughes, seconded by the Rev. the Warden of Ruthin, made for this object. COUNTY HALL, DENBIGH. A letter was read from the Secretary of State inclosing copy extract from a letter from the chair- man of the Prison Commissioners, complaining of the inadequate accommodation for prisoners atten- ding the Quarter Sessions for trial at Denbigh. The County Surveyor submitted to the court a plan and estimate for the improvement of such accommodation, for approval. The estimated cost was £ 80. This was adopted. LLANRWST LOCK-UP. A report of the justices acting in the Llanrwst division on the subject of the proposal improvements was read, and the estimated cost of carrying out the proposal was about £100. This was endorsed by the court. NEW JUSTICES. The following justices qualified :—Capt. Henry Richard Lloyd Howard, Wigfair, St. Asaph; F. James Vaughan Williams, Esq,, Llwynonn, Wrex- ham and John Sykes, Esq., Croes-Howell, Rossett, Wrexham. The name of Hugh Seymour Bulkeley Lewis Hughes, Esq., of Kinmel, has also been in- serted in the commission of the peace. RUTHIN LOCK-UP. An application from the Prison Commissioners as to the purchase of the lock-up of Ruthin, which forms a part of her Majesty's prison, having been laid before the court, the question was deferred. NORTH WALES COUNTIES LUNATIC ASYLUM. The court confirmed a resolution passed at a special meeting of the Committee of Visitors, to contribute £12;5 towards the cost of purchasing the new burial ground at Denbigh, on condition that the authorities of the burial ground will agree to provide accommodation for the burial of pauper lunatics dying at theAsylum on the same terms as the burial of other inhabitants of the district, for which the new burial ground is provided. The proportion for this county will be £ 32 18s. TRIAL OF PRISONERS.—FRIDAY. Captain Griffith-Boscawen presided, and amongst other justices present were the Lord-Lieutenant (Major Cornwallis West), Lieutenant-Colonel Mere- dith, Dr. Davies, Mr. John James, Mr. Charles Hughes; Major Hughes, the Rev. the Warden of Ruthin, Mr. W. Lester, Mr. J. Sykes, &c. The ,;ktfirman, in charging the grand jury, said the number of cases for trial was somewhat about the average, the number of prisoners being seven, concerned in six cases. Although the calendar presented some very disgusting features, yet he thought he might congratulate them upon the state of crime in the county generally. There was a marked absence of serious crime in this part of the county which was highly 'satisfactory. At the last assizes for the county there was not a single prisoner for trial, and at the assizes to be held next week at Chester, including the North Wales coun- ties, there was no prisoner for trial from Denbigh- shire. The only feature of the chief constable's report, presented on the previous day, that was of an unsatisfactory character, was the statement that there had been an increase in the number of cases of drunkenness, to the extent of 96, as compared with the corresponding quarter of the previous year. This was very difficult to account for in view of the great efforts that were being made to raise the tone and education of the people of the country but he hoped that the continuous increase in the number of drunken cases-for it had con- tinued now for several years—might partly arise from the increased vigilance on the part of the police, and was not really attributable to any actual increase in the drunken habits of the people. The chairman then proceeded to give a digest of the various acts of Parliament affecting the adminis- tration of the law, passed during the last session and afterwards made a few remarks upon the cases in the calendar. John Thomas Lloyd, aged 22, gardener, pleaded guilty to stealing a mare of the value of £25, the property of Sarah Vaughn, at Cefn, St. Asaph, and was sentenced to six months' imprisonment. Catherine Riley, aged 31, hawker, was charged with obtaining two sheets and a counterpane by false pretences from Mrs. Hannah Evans, shop- keeper, llansantffraid Glan Conway. She was found guilty, and sentenced to one month's im- prisonment. John Cartwright, who appeared in the uniform of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, pleaded guilty to stealing a silver watch, value £i5. the property of Thomas Williams, at Ruabon, and was sentenced to four months' imprisonment. John Lee, a master butcher, the son of a large farmer and butcher, having places of business at Wrexham and Borras, and Philip Jones, a shepherd in the employ of Mr. Lee, senior, were charged with stealing two ewes, the property of Mr. Thomas Parry, farmer, Borras. The farm of the prosecutor adjoins that of the prisoner Lee's father, and on the 5th of August the prosecutor had about 3U sheep in one of his fields, including two Shropshire ewes. The following morning both the sheep were missed, and on information being given to the police, one of the ewes was found at the public slaughter- houses, and the other in a stable rented by the prisoner Lee. After being apprehended, and while in the police-station, L ie stated that he bought the two sheep from the other prisoner. Jones, on the contrary, stated tha the found the prisoner Lee among his father's sheep on the night of the 5th of August, and on asking him what he wanted there he said he wanted two sheep and two lambs. Jones told him that his father would miss them, and he would get into trouble. Lee replied that he must have them from somewhere, and Jones left him in the field. Subsequently, Jones furth r stated that seven of Mr. Lee's sheep were taken the same night, and that three or four of them were taken back, and carcases of the remainder to the stall of Mr. Lee, senior, in the market.—Mr. Banks, who ap- peared for the prisoner Jones, submitted that there was no case to go to the jury as far as his client was concerned, and that he ought to be at once discharged. The court took the same view, and Jones was acquitted.—Mr. E. H. Lloyd, for the prisoner Lee, said the statement made by his client to the police was perfectly true he did buy the sheep from the man Jones, who had just been dis- charged and he (Mr. Lloyd) maintained that the evidence of the prosecutor bore out the prisoner's statement in every particular.—The jury, after a short consultation, returned a verdict of not guilty. The reason why so many are unable to take Cocoa is, that the varieties commonly sold are mixed with starch, under the plea of rendering them soluble; while really making them thick, heavy, and indiges- tible. This may be eadly detected, for if Cocoa thickens in the cup it proves the addition of starch. Cadbury's Cocoa Essence is genuine it is therefore three times the strength of these Cocoas, and a refreshing beverage like Tea or Coffee.
