JOSEPH FISON & Co., having established a Depot at Swansea, are now prepaied to deliver their M inures, carriage paid, at any Railway Station in South Wales and the neighbouring counties. The Corn Manures are designed especiaily for thejpvoduction oifim quality combined with a large yield, in which respect they excel other well known fertilisers. and samples of corn grown with these manures have fetched the higkest market prices in past seasons. The Root Manures are designed, not only to give the young plants a good start, but to support them through every stage of their Attentiot is particularly drawn to these points as some manures are only partial in their action, and, thouglf forcing at first, fail to bring the crops to perfection.

REPORT, By the Directors to the Proprietors of the North and South Wales Bank, at their Forty-third Annual Meeting, held at the Rooms of the Liverpool Law Association, Liverpool, 28th January, 1879. THE Directors Inn e pleasure in submitting to the Proprietors the following Report :— The value of money during last year, but especially during the latter half of it, has ruled considerably above the average of recent years, and has favorably influenced the profits of the Bank, as will be seen by the accompany- ing Statement of Profit and Loss Account. As heretofore, #very Branch of the Bank has been visited in the course of the year by Deputations of Directors, accompanied by the Country Manager, and the Accounts, Bills, Cash, and Securities examined on the spot, and in -each case with satisfactory results. Recent Bank failures, especially that of the City of Glasgow Bank, have naturally created a feeling of uneasiness in the minds of many Shareholders in Joint Stock Banks. Although the feeling has but slightly manifested itself amongst the Shareholders of this Bank, the total number of whom has in fact increased during the last three months, it nevertheless appeared to the Directors expedient, under the exceptional circumstances of the time, that the present Balance Sheet of the Bank should be audited, and this has been done accordingly by public accountants of well-known standing. It will be for the Shareholders to determine whether they desire that the next Balance Sheet shall likewise be audited, and if so, it is desirable that they should appoint the auditors for that purpose at the present meeting. The following is the Statement of Profit and Loss for the year ended 31st ultimo Gross Profits, including a balance £ 13.390 Os. lOd. from last account, after deducting interest due to Depositors, rebate on Hills not due, making provision for losses, and writing off £5,000 from Bank Buildings Account 2162,750 4 10 Deduct total expenditure of the Head Office, thirty-eight Branches, and twelve Sub-Branches, in- cluding Salaries, Directors'Fees, Rent, Taxes, and other expenses 56,277 9 2 £ 106,472 15 8 Less Dividends paid to Proprietors, viz.:— Half-year ended 30th June. 1878, Dividend at 10 per cent. per annum £25,000 0 0 Do. do.

HARMOOD BANNER & SON, Liverpool, 21st January, 1879. PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS. The question of limiting the liability of Shareholders in Banks has engaged the attention of the Board, and should a movement in that direction be decided upon by unlimited Banks generally, the Directors will be prepared to submit, for the approval of the Shareholders, any well-considered measure of the kind which, whilst giving a definite limit to the liability of the Shareholders, shall, at the same time, provide an ample margin of security to Depositors. The Directors who go out by rotation are Mr. ADAM EYTON and Mr. WILLIAM NICOL, both of whom are eligible for re-election, and offer themselves accordingly. GEORGE RAE, CHAIRMAN. E.

A copy sent post free to any address in Great Britain or America on receipt of Twenty-one Shillings, by WOODALL and VENABLES, Publishers, Oswestry. From the Daily Newt, Jan. 22nd, 1879. The thanks of antiquaries and historical students are due to Mr. Askew Roberts, of Oswestry, for his handsome reprint, with many valuable additions (Oswestry: Woodall and Venables), of the old memoir of the Gwydir Family, written by Sir John Wynne in the time of James I I., and first published in 1770. This narrative comprises the only known account of the state of society in North Wales in the fifteenth nnd the earlier part of the sixteenth centuries and its little incidental sketches of the wild, lawless condition of the country, and of the feuds of the different families who in certain districts were always contending for mastery, are curiously significant. The volume is accompanied by pedigrees, and by several interesting old portraits and views reproduced in facsimile. I BUSINESS ADDRESSES, "V''o.
