DOLGELLEY. D! WILLIAMS'S GIRLS' SOHOOL.-The Dolgelley School Board have appointed Mr. W. J. Beale, Bryntirion, Bontddu, a governor of the school, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Mr. Walker. THE CHURCH CLOCK.—A correspondent writes: The Prodigal Clock has returned, but not as most prodigals do, being the worse for their travels. No, no, it has come back fitted up in the latest style. How pleasant and so much like old times to hear the old clock chiming away again every quarter of an hour In striking the hour it seems that during its travels it has picked up a new fashion, for it strikes so leisurely as if it were determined that all should hear it. The inhabitants of Dolgelley ought to be grateful to those who subscribed towards its being re- paired,and we hope that those people who were some time ago wondering that the matter was not taken up by somebody or other long ago, are satisfied with the work, and that they will try and raise a fund to get it lighted up at night during the winter months.
