ct,lpp-a 0 gob Vcth. Both Liberals and Conservatives have been actively canvassing the borough of Denbigh. Both Sir Robert Cunliffe and Mr. Kenyon have paid electoral visits to Holt. It is stated that the consecration of the new Bishop of Lichfield will take place on Whit-Tuesday, and that Bishop Abraham will hold the usual Trinity Ordination. Schools of Cookery do not yet succeed, as some day they will. The Stafford School has found itself at the end of a brief course burdened with a debt of £ 27_. It fis now stated that there is no probability of Mr. Watkin Williams's becoming acaudidate for Newcastle-on- Tyne, and that at present he has no seat in view. In the match at Lord's, M.C.C. and Ground v. 22 Colts of England, Mr. Harry Baines, of Welshpool repre- sented Montgomeryshire among the colts, and ranked 6th among the 22. „ Mr. Thelwall held an inquest on lhursday, May 9, on the body of Samuel Jones, of Nant, Coedpoeth, who, in working in a railway cutting at Plaspower Colliery, was buried under a heap of debris and killed. The rejoicings at Banger Iscoed to celebrate the mar- riage ot Mr. F. Lloyd concluded with a dinner, presided over by the Rector, the Rev. G. H. M'Gill, at which a piece of plate was presented to Mr. Lloyd. It is stated that the deputation from the Catholic Union of Great Britain to Leo XIII. will be headed by the Earls of Denbigh and Gainsborough and Monsignor Weld, who will be accompanied by some half-dozen other prominent Roman Catholics. The downpour of rain onWednesday and Thursday week prevented the ordinary review of the Flintshire Militia, for the training ground was unfit for military manoeuvres. The inspecting officer was, therefore, compelled to forego most of the customary movements. Mr. Morley Punshon, son of Dr. Punshon, preached a trial sermon, prior to the district meeting, in St. John- street Wesleyan Chapel, Chester, on Wednesday evening, May 8. There was a fair congregation. The discourse was founded upon the words Pray without ceasing." Mr. Townshend Mainwaring was entertained at a luncheon at the Crown Hotel. Denbigh, on Thursday, May 9th, by the Vale of Clwyd Chamber of Agriculture. Mr. W. M. Clarke of Kinmel, occupied the chair, and about sixty gentlemen were present. The Town Council of Carmarthen have decided to recom- mend Mr. Bowen, Q.C., as Recorder of that borough, in succession to Mr. B. T. Williams, whose resignation becomes necessary by his return to Parliament for the constituency. The Rev. W. E. James, vicar of Abergwilly, has been elected Proctor in Convocation for the diocese of St. David, in the room of Dr. Griffiths, deceased. There was another candidate, the Rev. Dr. Walters, vicar of Llan- samlet, and the numbers were—James, 130, Walters 70. The High Church party were said to go with Mr. James, and the Low Church with Dr. Walters, but the two parties were a good deal mixed in the matter. On Friday night, May 10th, during the absence from home of an old woman resident at Penybryn, Bethesda, a recipient of outdoor relief from the Bangor and Beaumaris Union, a fire broke out in the back part of her small tenement. The door was forced open by the police and some of the neighbours, and concealed in a hole in the wall were found two bags containing, in gold and silver, about 9220. The nomination of candidates for the Carmarthen Boroughs took place at the Guildhall, Carmarthen, on Saturday. Mr. B. Williams. Q.C., Liberal, was proposed by Mr. James Buckley, Penyfai, and seconded by Mr. Mostyn Davies. No other candidate being proposed, at three o'clock Mr. James Isaac, sheriff, declared Mr. Williams duly elected. In briefly returning thanks, Mr. Williams promised to support the great principles of Liberalism which he had always advocated. John Owen, of Llangefni, summoned Elizabeth Hughes, at Menai Bridge petty sessions, for insulting and annoying him, and prayed that she might be bound over to be of good behaviour. Both parties, it appeared, were members of the Independent Chapel, Llangefni, and there had been a dispute about the minister, in which complainant and defendant were opposed. Complainant alleged that defendant used insulting language to him in the street, and that he was afraid she would repeat the annoyance. The Bench dismissed the case. Thomas Williams, of Cefn Mawr, was charged at Shrewsbury Police Court last week with having assaulted P.S. Langford, of Minsterley. Williams was drinking with others at Minsterley, and a woman complained to Langford of the way in which she had been treated by the roysterers. Langford asked Williams for his address. Williams replied in abusive language, and a struggle ensued, in the course of which the sergeant was bitten and kicked by the defendant. A fine of £3, or six weeks' imprisonment, was the penalty inflicted. An action has been heard in the Denbigh County Court in which Mr. Cornwallis West, Lord Lieutenant of Den- bighshire, sought to recover S50 from Mr. Houghton, of Leighton Hall, Cheshire, to whom he had let the right of sporting over Foxhall estate in the county of Denbigh. It was stated on behalf of the plaintiff that the defendant had signed an agreement to be in operation for five years, under which he was bound to keel' down the rabbits, so that they should do no appreciable damage to the farms, but that he had not done so, and had prevented the keepers trom keeping them down, so that the crops of the tenants were destroyed. The plaintiff sought to recover damages as trustee for the tenants. The case was ordered to stand adjourned in order that a special case might be submitted to the superior court. At a meeting of the Chester Town Council, held on Wednesday, May 8, a sum of CI50 was voted to the Free Library Committee for the purchase of new works and for repairs to the Librarv. The Council was engaged for a long time in discussing the scheme recommended by a committee of the Council for the improvement of North- gate-street from the Cross to the Market Square. The cost of the improvement was estimated at £ 56,121. A general opinion was expressed in favour of widening and otherwise improving this portion of the street, which is one of the main arteries of the city, but the adoption of the scheme was opposed chiefly upon the ground that the estimate would not be sufficient for the purpose, and that the improvement would in all probability cost upwards of 2100,000. The further discussion of the proposal was postponed until the July meeting of the Council with the view of ascertaining in the meantime the feeling on the subject of so large au outlay. The School Board Chronidc says that "while the Clerk of the Wellington Board, in Shropshire, was advis- ing his Board that to enforce payment of school fees by means of the County Court was impracticable, one quiet Board at Dearham had found the County Court a simple, easy, and natural way of bringing home to parents the necessity of paying their fees." Nearly all the persons summoned paid the money into Court, and "the process has been found so satisfactory that it has become the regular practice of the Board. Meanwhile there is no obstruction to the attendance at school of children at Dearham, while in many districts of England and Wales, in spite of the orders of the Education Department to the contrary, children are being turned away from the school doors, and are losing' their education, for the reason that the fee of a penny or twopence is not forthcoming at the moment. Dr. J. R. Hughes has been appointed medical officer of health for the borough of Denbigh, in the place of Mr. J. Lloyd Roberts, M.B., who resigned on the ground that the Town Council did not carry out his recommendations. The Local Government Board having suggested that the In- spector of Nuisances should devote more time to his duties, the Council have raised the salary of that official to t20 a year The nuisances at Denbigh are not as small as the salaries given would lead us to suppose. The Council have just held a sitting, extending to midnight, to discuss a letter in whieh Dr. Thorne set forth the sanitary defects of the town. The following- resolution was the result of the long-continued debate That having carefully read over and considered tlieireport of Dr. Thorne, the Council, whilst seriously calling in question many of the sweeping charges made in the report, made it is feared upon very .unreliable information, desires to point out that they had unre some months previously submitted a scheme for the full and proper drainage of the town, and although the scheme has been before the Local Government Board, regret that they have so long delayed approving of the same." The Belfast Northern Whig says-" The Larne traction engine nuisance ease has occupied a great deal of time in its hearing, and a very considerable amount of our space. We do not say that either the time or the space was wasted; but we feel sure that even our good friends in the neighbourhood of Larne must be gratified that the case has at last been concluded. The magistrates gave their decision yesterday. It was adverse to the plaintiffs, as the Court held that a traction engine traversing the public road did not constitute a nuisance. Railways frequently ran close to public roads; and their engines might praetieally be regarded as forming a nuisance equally with traction engines, supposing these were nuisances but railways run under Acts of Parliament, and could not be proseeuted as nuisances. The magis- trates held that traction engines also had the sanction of Parliament, and did not think that in this particular instance a nuisance had been proved.. In particular, it was remarked that though the engine was regularly driven through the town of Larne, none of its inhabitants had come forward to complain of it. The charge was, therefore, dismissed; and we think there is substantial justice in the decision. It i", no doubt, very annoying to owners of horses to have them frightened on the public road bit the evidence on this point was not particularly strong, and without a very strong case indeed, the Court would not have been justified in giving a judgment which would have had the effect of prohibiting the use of traction engines altogether. The Rev. E. Herber Evans, of Carnarvon, was amongst the speakers at the annual meeting of the British and Foreign Bible Society in Exeter Hall. He said that they in Wales greatly rejoiced that that Society, started to meet the wants of the inhabitants of the Principality, had be- come a permanent Christian Society. I will give (he con- tinued) the result of the circulation of the Bible in Wales in the actions of the Home Secretary. The Home Secre- tary is fflow able to abolish half the county prisons in Wales because there are more prisons than prisoners. I Was the other day at Dolgelley, where a friend asked me if We did not want a new College for Bala. I said Yes." Why," said he, do you not buy the prison at Dolgelley ? It has been closed for months. I have heard that the County prison of Beaumans, Anglesea, was about being closed. It has had only one prisoner for six months, and she did not speak a word of Welsh." (Laughter and cheers.) Now we have a choice of prisons to be turned iito colleges, and it is more creditable to fill t'lem with students than to nil them with pri- soners. And we owe it all to this Book. We owe it t; ) thii; Book that there is not a single infidel book pub- lished in the Welsh language. We owe it to this Book that Popery has hitherto failed to make any progress a-nong the people of Walftst. We owe it t) this Book that j Wales is a centre of true Protestantism. (Cheers.) What this Bunk has done for Wales it can do for other countries. i
FROM THE PAPERS. Lord Sandon has been projribted to a seat in the Cabinet. On Saturday, May 11, the Earl of Desart obtained a di- vorce from his wife on the ground of her adultery with Mr. Charles Sugden, a well-known actor. Professor Huxley has been elected a Corresponding Fellow of the Royal Academy of Rome, in the department of Natural History. The interest in the Paris Exhibition is reported to be increasing daily. The crowds on Sunday, May 12, were even greater than those on the previous Sunday. The Bristol papers report that a terrific thunderstorm visited the western counties and South Wales on Friday night. Congratulations are pouring in upon the Emperor William on his escape from assassination. On Monday, at the call of the president, all the members of the Ger- man Parliament rose to their feet and gave enthusiastic cheers for his Majesty. The Queen reviewed the troops at Aldershot on Mon- day, May 13. While the troops were marching past, the rain came down in torrents and drove the spectators to shelter, but her Majesty continued the inspection. The Rev. W. Tranter, of West Harnham, near Salisbury, ham just completed his 100th year. Although he retired from full ministerial duties some years ago, he has since frequently preached in the Wesleyan Chapel, Salisbury. The Berlin correspondent of the Standard telegraphs that the police have discovered a completely organised secret Revolutionary Go%,ernment, which had prepared a Nihilist conspiracy all over Russia. The annual review of the armies of Paris and Versailles will take place towards the end of June. About 65,000 troops will be engaged. The foreign soldiers present at the the Exhibition will take part in the proceedings as a guard of honour at the official stand. It is stated that Mr. E. J. Reed, the member for Pem- broke, has received an invitation from the Mikado of Japan to visit that country. A palace will be placed at his disposal. The trial of M. Eugene Chantrelle, teacher of languages, in the High Court, Edinburgh, on the charge of poisoning his wife, was concluded on Friday, May 10th. The jury returned a verdict of guilty. Sentence of death was passed, and the prisoner's execution was fixed for the 31st May. The Sultan is said by the Levant Herald to have made a, gift of his large farm at Alemdagh, on the Asiatic coast of the Bospherus, for the benefit of war fugitives, and a special commission has been appointed to consider the di- vision of the property amongst the fugitives for purposes of allotment and cultivation. It has been definitely decided that Mr. Thomas Hughes, Q.C., shall come forward as a Liberal candidate for the representation of Salisbury, and he has consented to address the Liberal Association on the evening of the 22nd May. 0 A devil fish," described as measuring five feet in length and two feet across, has been caught in the Severn, and is being exhibited at Chepstow. The fish has an enormous mouth, and two arms, under each of which there is a pocket large enough to carry an infant. The top of its tail is very like the shape of a human foot, and under its belly there are two semi-fleshy protuberances greatly resembling the hands of a human being. A severe collision with the police and much window breaking are reported from Over Darwen, arising out of the burning of effigies of persons who had given offence to the operatives on strike. A large body of police has been drafted into the town, and other arrangements taken to cope with any further disturbances that may break out. Serious injuries have been sustained by a police sergeant and one of the rioters. Four persons were arrested. The nomination of candidates for the vacancy in the re- presentation of the university took place on Monday, May 13th. the president of St. John's proposing Mr. John Gil- bert Talbot, of Christ Church, the Conservative candidate, and the Dean of Christ Church the Liberal candidate, Professor Henry John Stephen Smith, of Corpus. The polling concluded yesterday. For the twelfth time Sir James Ingham resumed on Saturday, May 11th, at the Bow-street Police Court, the charge of conspiracy in connection with the Albion Life Assurance Company. The defendants were committed for trial, bail being accepted for some of them but be- tween the committal and the arrival of the prison van, it was discovered that Alfred Shaw, for whom bail had been refused, had effected his escape. Mrs. Bright, the wife of the Right Hon. John Bright, M.P., died suddenly at One Ash, Rochdale, on Monday morning, May 13, of apoplexy. Mr. Bright, who was in London, was telegraphed for, and arrived home on Mon- day evening. Mrs. Bright was the eldest daughter of Mr. William Leatham, banker, Wakefield, and was married in 1847. Much sympathy is felt with Mr. Bright in the House of Commons, especially among his more intimate friends. He will, it is expected, take no further part in public affairs until after the Whitsuntide recess. The manager of the Jardin d' Acclima.tation at Paris has (says the Athenwum) directed the attention of African ex- plorers to the zebra as a beast of burden, better suited to the climate than any of our domesticated animals, not even excepting the ass. Several zebras now under his charge have been successfully broken in, and M. de Seinelle, whose project of crossing Africa from the mouth of the Niger to the east coast has been referred to by us, may possibly make use of this novel beast of burden. The late Professor Putz, the author of the universally known school books of geography nd history, has left a considerable legacy to the TJnirersity of Bonn. He wishes 15,000 marks of what he has bequeathed to be spent on geographical and historical works for the University library, the interest of 40,000 marks to be annually devoted to three bursaries, and the rest of his legacy (60,000 marks) to be capitalised, and the interest devoted to the geographical and historical section of the library from year to year. A disturbance took place at a marriage in a Methodist chapel at Hanley on Wednesday, May 8th. An old man of seventy, with several grown up children and grand- children, had arranged to be married to a. girl eighteen years old. On the party arriving at the chapel they were attacked by a mob and their clothes were torn. Ten police- men were present, but were overpowered, and the mob rushed into the chapel, and kept up a continual noise throughout the ceremony. A window was broken and a great disturbance followed. The married pair finally es caped by different doors, and were escorted home by eight constables. The publicity given to the sad story of Lady Kingsland has resulted in a fund of nearly £ 000, being contributed by kindly sympathisers, which is to be expended in the purchase of a Post Office Government Annuity of £ 50— the largest amount granted tl50 has been invested in India Four per Cent. Stock, and the balance has been placed on deposit, after applying such portions of it as were necessary for the immediate wants of Lady Kingsland and her niece. This arrangement will give her ladyship an income of £60 a year, and the reversion of the invested fund will hereafter fall to her niece. The Jewish World gives the particulars of a great con- flagration which has recently occurred in the town of Wilcomer, in Russia. More than 1,000 houses and shops and all their contents were destroyed, as well as twelve synagogues, and" Beth Hamedrashim," and a large number of sacred books and scrolls of the law. A few lives were lost, and the destruction is of so wholesale and com- plete a nature that many people, formerly considered as being very wealthy, are now wandering about the streets without food or shelter, and altogether reduced to the most miserable poverty. A committee has been formed at Kovno for the relief of the sufferers. On Thursday, May 9, the Allan line mail steamer Sardinian left Liverpool for Quebec and Montreal with 460 passengers. On Friday afternoon she arrived in Louarh Foyle to receive mails and passengers, but had hardly come to an anchor when a terrible explosion occurred in ope of the coal bunkers, followed by the out- break of fire. A scene of indescribable confusion followed, and when order had been to some extent restored it was found that forty of the passengers had been injured and three killed. The passengers were afterwards removed by steamtugs to Londonderry. On Friday, May 10, the Home Secretary received a deputation calling attention to the practice now in vogue of children of tender years being allowed to sell news- papers, matches, &c., in the streets of large towns, to the great detriment of their health and morals.. Mr. Cross said the Government hadintroduced a clause in the Scotch Education Bill now before Parliament which to a great extent would meet the views of the deputation. If this measure passed, he should not object to the insertion of a similar clause so far M Knclaiid was nonrierited. A correspondent the Times wnites from Clifton to call attention to the remarkable success of a lady medical prac- titioner who is in practice there and attends the dispen- sary. This lady, Dr. Eliza W. Dunbar, who has settled in Clifton, was asked to give gratuitous advice to the poor, and readily consented. She has now for four years car- ried on the work, which constantly increases, and has lately had no fewer than fifty-three patients in one morn- ing. It is said that women come from all parts of Bristol, from the neighbouring villages, and even from other towns, and that they express themselves in the warmest terms of gratitude for the opportunity of consulting a lady thus af- forded them. On Thursday, May 9th, an influential deputation, repre- senting the leading Nonconformists and several members of Parliament, went to Pembroke Lodge Richmond, to present an address of congratulation to Earl Russell, upon the fiftieth anniversary of the repeal of the Test and Cor- poration Acts. Upon their arrival, it was stated that Earl Russel was too unwell to receive the deputation, but that Lady Russell would do so. The interview took place in the drawing room. Mr. H. Richard, M.P., briefly introduced the matter, and Mr. Alfred Shepheard read the address of congratulation, which was illuminated in an album, and referred to Lord Russell's services to the country in the cause of civil and religious liberty. Lady Russell, in reply, stated that the address had been read to Lord Kussel, and he had heard its words with deep emo- hisfamil yV ever a precious possession to him and to About half-past three on Saturday afternoon, May 11, as the Lmperor of Germany was returning to the palace from a drive lie had taken with the Grand Duchess of Baden, two shots from a revolver were fired at his Majesty, in the Avenue Unter den Linden. The Emperor escaped unhurt, and the perpetrator of the attempt, a tin- smith oi Leipsic, named Max Hoedel, was arrested. A second person, named Krueger, was arrested on the charge of endeavouring to facilitate Max Hoedel's escape, but has since been discharged. From papers found on Max Husdftl, and also from his examination by the police, it is clear that he belongs to the Socialist party, but the Socialist paper emphatically condemns the outrage, and Hoedel is not supposed to have had accomplices.

The Americans, like the Greeks, delicately speak of an uglv woman as a mistake of the angels." An editor offers a reward of five dollars for the best treatise on How to make out-door life attractive to the mosquito." A hawk stooped down upon a weather vane on a church spire, and was disgusted to find it only an imitation rooster. Nashville has a club of rejected lovers. One of the rules inflcts the penal'y of expulsion upon any member who visits the lady who once rejected him. The editor of a Virginia paper was asked by a stranger "if it was possible that little town kept up four news- papers." And I he reply was, "No, it takes four news- papers to keep up the town." A lawyer arose in the midst of a case at Chicago, the other day, and said, May it please the court, there's a fight out-doors, and I ask for a short adjournment." The court went out with him. The editor of an Illinois paper thinks that fishing, as a general rule, doesn't pay. He says, We stood it all day in the river last week, but caught nothillg-Ilntilwc got home." An American farmer sent to an orphan asylum for a boy that was smart, active, brave, tractable, prompt, in- dustrious, clean, pious, intelligent, good-looking, reserved, and modest.

Twenty-eight years ago a Buffalo man said to his wife, "Miranda, I'm going down to Tim's after a bed-cord." That was the last seen of him until the other day, when he entered the house with a bed-cord, and said he'd mend that bed now.

THE FIRST" LENDING LIBRARY" IN ENGLAND.—In the reign of Henry IV. was built a library in Durham College (now Trinity College), Oxford, for the large collection of books of Richard of Bury, said to consist of more volumes than all the Bishops of England had in their possession. Richard had bestowed certain portions of his valuable library upon a company of scholars residing in a hall at Oxford, and he drew up "a provident arrangement, by which books may be lent to strangers," meaning students of Oxford not belonging to that hall. The custody of the books was deputed to five of the scholars, in which three, and in no case fewer, could lend any books for inspection and use only but for copying and transcribing they did not allow any book to pass without the walls of the house. And when any scholar was .qualified for the favour, and demanded the loan of a book, the keepers, provided they had a duplicate of the book, might lend it to him, taking a security exceeding in value the book lent. WHY ONE GOES TO THE PARIS EXHIBITION.—The fol- lowing list of reasonable reasons will be found invaluable to all persons who may need, from whatever cause to offer an excuse for crossing the Channel:—Because one knows French. Because one doesn't know French, but thinks this an excellent opportunity of acquiring the language. Because one has relations settled in Paris, and lodgings will therefore be saved. Because one didn't go to the last French Exhibition. Because one did go to the last French Exhibition, and wants to compare this one with its predecessor. Because the Prince of Wales has been exerting himself so energetically in the getting-up of the show that one feels it to be the duty of every loyal Englishman to evince active appreciation of the Prince's efforts. Because it will be something to say one has been. Because one's business is slack, and it's no use stopping at home. Because one's business isn't slack, and one can there- fore afford an outing. Because everybody is going.— Fanny Folks.
FROM LONDON LETTERS. Lord Salisbury seems to have small sympathy with the Pan-Anglican Synod. He has—or rather, I ought to say, had—forbidden the Bishop of Calcutta to come over here to attend it. Now, of course, he has no longer any con- trol over the metropolitan of India, and if Bishop John- son wants very much to come here lie must apply to Lord Cranbrook. Possibly the new Indian Secretary may also object, seeing that Bishop Mylne is away from his diocese. His lordship of Bombay has, by the way, been rather astonishing his fellow Anglicans at Rome by driving about that city in a costume which made strangers suppose that he belonged to the Latin obedience," or would have done so but for the fact that he usually had a lady for his com- panion, which bishops of the Latin obedience are not ac- customed to do.—Liverpool Mercury. The newest member of the Cabinet (Lord Sandon) is not the youngest. Sir Michael Beach is six years, and Col. S'1Ldy is ten years, younger than Lord Sandon. Of the other members the Premier is the eldest, being 73. The Duke'of Northumberland is 68, Viscount Cranbrook is 64, the Duke of Richmond, Sir Stafford Northcote, and Lord John Manners are 60, Lord Cairns is 59, Mr. Smith is 53, Lord Salisbury is 48, and Mr. Cross is 55. The average age is about The B-ew President of the Board of Trade had earned a fair parliamentary reputation as Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education—a difficult post, which acquired excep ional importance during the able administration of Mr. Forster and it is understood that when Lord Sandon was recently transferred to the Board of Trade, in succession to Sir Charles Adderley, the Pre- mier at the same time intimated his intention to restore this important department to the rank of Cabinet repre- sentation. The translation of Mr. Hardy to the Upper House will greatly weaken the debating power of the Ministry in the Lower House, and it would be an idle compliment to suggest that Lord Sandon has been raised to the Cabinet rank as a makeweight for Mr. Hardy's removal. His accession to the Cabinet will at least strengthen the borough representation within it.-Liver- pool Pott. How many people, I wonder, keep their marriage lines and their children's registration papers under hand ready for production at a moments notice ? It will be a sorry thing for the wives and children of the soldiers called out in the Reserves if they have not their certificates to hand. If they cannot produce them when they apply for the pay which the Government is ready to grant them in advance their cases will be postponed, and in all probability they will get nothing at all. As a matter of policy, and to guard against immorality, this seems a very proper thin"- but it is a little hard on women who may have been mar- ried abroad, or have not the wherewithal to pay for the certificates issued by Somerset House.—Liverpool Post, You will not be surprised to hear that the County Government Bill may already be counted among the inno- cents who, at the proper time will be legislatively slaughtered. It was evident from the first that the Government was not in earnest with the measure. If they had really intended to carry it through, they would not have confided its conduct to so weak-kneed a man as Mr. Sclater-Booth. When one found that Mr. Cross's name was not on the back of the Bill, its fate might have been already foretold. I believe the opposition to its pro- visions from the Conservative side, which found but mild expression during the first stages of the measure, became more loud-mouthed during the recess, and warned the Government that it could not be passed without more strenuous efforts than they were disposed to put forward in its favour. Another measure of the Government may have a similar fate. Th Cattle Bill will soon be before the H^.use of Commons, and the Liberal party is determined to put forth its full strength against the clause which makes com-1 pulsory the slaughter of all animals from abroad at the port of debarkation. The Opposition is strengthened by the concession in the report of the Select Committee of the House of Lords on the Bill, that the United States and Canada should be exempted from the operation of the clause. Quite as good a case can be made out in favour of the exemption of several European countries. Thus Denmark has been free from rinderpest* for more than 100 years, is almost unacquainted with pleuro-pneumonia and has suffered but little from foot-and-mouth diseased Of nearly 100,000 animals sent from that country last year to this only 11 were found to be diseased. Amoii"- 30,000 animals which reached us from Spain there were but four bad cases and of about 22,000 sent from Norway Sweden, and Portugal, veterinary intervention was not called for in a single instance. These startling facts will be laid before the House, and will probably produce some effect even on the obstinate heads of the bucolic members. To Mr. Forster will be entrusted the task of [ea-ding the opposition. As a former Vice-president of bhe Council, he has had the duty of simultaneously attend- ing to cattle disease abroad and education at home, and so is well acquainted with the whole subject.—Birmingham Post.
An inquest was held at Llanllyfni, Carnarvonsnire, Oil Saturday, May 11th, on the body of Sarah Jones, aged 18 months, daughter of a farmer, who had been strangled by her mother.

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.—When inclement weather checks to a considerable extent the natural exhalations of the skin, an alterative is required to expel them entirely from the body through some other channel. Holloway's Pills can be confidently recommended as the easiest, surest, and safest means of attaining this desirable end without weak- ening the most delicate or incommoding the most feeble.

NOTES. SONG:—TOWN AND TRADE OF ELLES- MERE.—A song under this title appeared in Bye-gones, Oct. 3, 1877, of which the following is the first verse :— O long life to the Myttons, the Hatchetts, The Mainwarings, Dyniocks, mv dear, While the mountains re-echo the catches We sing to the praise of Ellesmere, There's never a town in famed Salop Can match it for frolic and fun, If throughout all Shropshire you gallop From rising till setting of sun. Then long life, &c. This song was written by a man of the name of Beggs, an erratic genius, who "flourished" in Elles- mere about 1825, the probable date of the song. Beggs was something of a painter—he was musical also—and had a turn for the stage. There was a company of players in Ellesmere at that time, who for two or three months per- formed in the Old Market Hall, and Beggs would occasionally act with them. Had he lived in these days he would have been called a "Bohemian." "fy dear," in the second line of the first verse, as it appears in Bue- gones, should be "so dear." GEORGINA F. JACKSON. 13, White Friars, Chester. A ROBBERY AT CHIRK.—The following (from the Gents: Mag: or Ann: Rcg:) I have, as I give it, pasted in a Scrap Book :— COUNTRY NEWS. Wrexham, April 10. Monday the first instant was tried before the Hon. Lloyd Kenyon, and Daines Harrington, Esq., at Wrexham Assizes, a cause wherein Elizabeth Edwards, widow, was plaintiff, and T. Lloyd defen- dant, both of the neighbourhood of Chirk. The action was brought for recovery of seven guineas, which the plaintiff had lost by going over a stile ever since the year 1776, and though it had been cried, &c., the person who picked it up was not discovered till 1779 and probably would never have been dis- covered but for the honesty of a servant girl, who lived in defendant's family. Thomas Lloyd bought a suit of clothes, and trusted one Drury with the secret of his having picked up the poor woman's money. Drury thinking it hard not to have a share in the spoil, told the girl, who afterwards got the secret from the defndant'8 myn mouth, anti divulged it to the plaintiff. Several fruitless applications were made for the restoration of the money by fair means but as nothing but compulsion would avail, the action was commenced, and the jury gave a verdict forthe plaintiff of seven guineas, and £1 Vis., being the interest for the same from the time the defendant found it." The £1 15s. allowed being five years' interest, at five percent., upon the seven pounds, would fix the date of the above trial at Wrexham Assizes as April the first, 1781. LAXDWOR. QUERIES. FLINTSHIRE AND THE PRINCE OF WALES. About the middle of 1802 a paragraph appeared in some of the papers as follows :—" The Prince of Wales is likely to derive a very considerable addition to his revenues, by the intended drainage of Redland (sic) Marsh, in Flint- shire it is of vast extent and excellent quality, subject, at present, to inundations from the sea at spring tides." About the same date we are told that Sirs Thomas and Pierce Mostyn, Mr. Pennant, and Lord Plymouth, are about to enclose the extensive waste in Flintshire, called Cluberier (sic) or Long Path; it contains several thou sands of acres of land, competent to every purpose of hus- bandry." When were these works executed, and what did the Prince gain by it? G.G. PREN Y GROG PREN, near Dylifau, Mont.— From the Ordnance Map is appears that there is some kind of an earthwork at this spot. Will any one ac- quainted with the neighbourhood furnish a description of it, and give some account of the origin of the name. GOGLEDD. REPLIES. A NEWTOWN PISCATOR (Jan 30, 1878).— Henry Williams, whose death was announced in the Cam. Quar. Mag. for 1830, was a well-known character in the district, though not, I should have thought, a man of sufficient mark to figure, even when dead—a time when mea's virtues are often discovered for the first time—in a quarterly serial. Williams figured in a local poem called The Otter Hunt, by George Thomas, whose poem Welsh Flannel, has already been quoted in Bye-gones. The author in describing the various persons who went to the hunt, says— To whip forward the hounds came a little bme fisher, To his rival the otter no very well-wisher, His shirt fell his waistcoat and waistband between, And like a Scotch petticoat round him was seen And a crayat once white was around his neck ti'd, Which now with the juice of tobacco was di'd, That flow'd from the quid of pigtail which he chew'd. And his chin and his 'kerchief and waistcoat bestrew'd He had orders received to gaze firm on the brook, Should the otter bc rous'd to see which way he took, For the centinal longest on duty will stay, Whose legs are unable to bear him away. The poem was printed by Mr. Jackson Salter, of New- town, who had formerly resided in Oswestry, and I have been told that when he read the above passage to the hero of it, Williams, before he had finished, exclaimed, rather forcibly Why, he means me S. J. OSWESTRY TOLLS (Feb. 20, 1878).- Your correspondent TELL asks for particulars relative to "a case" which was about to be prepared in 1815, with a view of testing the legality of Toll-taking at the sites of the old Oswestry gates. I have just met with a letter in the Salopian Journal of Jan. 27, 1836, which incidentally alludes to it, in the following passage :— I am old enough to remember many an unpleasant recontre between the renters of "toll-through" from the Lord of the Manor, and the Farmer, on the delivery of grain to his dealer, both within and" without the walls"—the deep-laid, but yet abortive scheme resorted to to test such claim—and the final extinction of simple toll;—and also that on the wheels passing through, or unloading without, the walls. During the first period loud and just were the complaints made against the exaction of these dues of feudal times, and many the wish ex- pressed for the consummation so desirable as their entire re- moval. Year after year passed away, yet were our wishes un- fulfilled, until at length, by the praiseworthy exertions of a highly talented gentleman, of whom his fellow-townsmen have need to boast, this obnoxious tax was removed, being purchased by voluntary subscriptions of the town and neighbourhood. This communication is more a note on than a reply to TELL'S query, save that it hints at the attempt to test the tolls being abortive, and it suggests a couple of queries on its own account, viz.—Who was the public benefactor alluded to, and when was the public subscription made ? FITZALAN. ROGERS (Jan. 13, 1875).—Since the query regard- ing the family of Rogers in Wales, appeared, it has been ascertained that the Rev. Henry Rogers, rector of Tre- filan and vicar of Llanfihangel Ystrad, 1698—1744 (the date'of his preferment as inserted in the query being a misprint), was the son of Lewis Rogere, of Ystradfellte, in Breconshire. He was born in 1667, and educated at the Collegiate School of Brecon, from which he went to Jesus College, Oxford, where he matriculated on the 2nd of j July in Trinity Term, 1683. He took the degree of B.A. on the 11th of April, 1687, but does not appear to have I proceeded further. His first curacy was that of Pen-y- daren, a parish adjoining Ystradfellte. From there he migrated into Carmarthenshire, where it is believed he held the curacy of Abergwyli. Thence he removed into the Vale of Aeron, being said to have been the first of the name that settled in that neighbourhood, where the repre- sentatives of the family still occupy an honourable posi- tion. It is not known that he was the author of any pub- lished work, but there exists evidence to show that he excelled in classical attainments, and left records in calli- graphy highly to be admired. Information touching the above-named Lewis Rogers, where in Ystradfellte he re- sided, and the stock from which he sprang, is further de- sired. LLALLAWG. A SALOPIAN DRINKING CUP (May I, 1S7S).— I presume P. I. M. Hill, L.H. Volunteers" means Pimhill Light Horse Volunteers," at any rate there was such a company, at the beginning of the century, com- manded by Mr. Rowland Hunt. The cup doubtless origi- nated in the visit of Prince William Frederick to Shrop- shire, on the last days, of July and first days of August 1803. I have a short newspaper report of that visit before me as I write, and in it find that his Royal Highness on the 30th of July reviewed Major Oludde's troops of Yeomanry Cavalry, at Wellington, after which he pro- ceeded to Shrewsbury, and the same (Saturday) evening reviewed the three troops of Shrewsbury Yeomanry Cavalry, in the county town. The Major (the Hon. W. Hill) and Capt. Powys. being unavoidably absent, the 'command devolved on Capt. Hanmer. On the following day the Prince attended Divine service, and on Monday, Aug. 1 (the date on the cup) he went to Hawkestone, where he reviewed the troops of the North Shropshire Yeomanry Cavalry, under the command of Major John Hill. No doubt the Pimhill" troop was there but I cannot hazard a guess as to the "Earl's coronet, with letters L.P.B. or to whom the Standard was presented by the Hon. L. Pulteney on June 4, 1799. I have no record of any presentation at that date, although I have a file of Shrewsbury papers of the year. N.W.S. BISHOP LLOYD AT OSWESTRY (May 1, 1878.) I have a pamphlet entitled "A Cursory view of the Lives of the Rev. Jonathan Hanmer, A.M., and the Rev. John Hamner, A.M., &c. which is comprised in Seven letters to Thomas Welman, Esq., of Poundesford Park, near Taunton, by H. W. Gardiner and which was printed in Barnstaple in 1828. One passage (p. 31) points out another meeting between the Bishop of St. Asaph, and the Independent Minister of Oswestry, and is as follows:— About the same time, in June 1688, Dr. Lloyd, Bishop of St. Asaph, passing through Oswestry, in Salop, sent for the Rev. James Owen, the Dissenting Minister of that town, and in a free and confidential conversation respecting the imminent danger of the Protestant religion, ventured to make known to him the secret of an invitation being sent to the Prince of Orange, by anumberof Lords and Gentlemen, acknowledging him- self to be one of those who had signed this important document. During this conversation,his Lordship freely expressed his hope that tile Protestant Dissenters would readily concur for pro- moting the common interest; adding these remarkable words —"Yon and we are brethren; we have indeed been angry brothers, but we have seen our folly, and are resolved, if ever we have it in our power again, to show that we will treat you as brethren." But when the threatening storm subsided, and a calm beyond all expectation succeeded, too many forgot their vows and promises made, when placed in a state of fearful uncertainty. If JARCO has the Life of James Owen he may perhaps be able to supplement this extract by some passages from it. SALOPIAN,
