LLWYNGWRIL. DEPRESSION OF TRADE.—In consequence of the Tyncoed and Gloewern Slate Quarries having been stopped, a con- siderable number of men have been turned out of work. These unfortunate persons are glad to obtain anything to do; but most of them are unable to get any sort of em- ployment. There are some with families to depend upon, that have not had a day's work for three months. THE CHOIKS.—There are two choirs preparing for the musical competition at Barmouth on Good Friday next. An adult choir, under the leadership of Mr. J. Lewis, and a. Juvenile choir. It may be remembered that the Llwyngwril Adult Choir carried off the chief prize at Barmouth Eisteddfod on Christmas day last. SCHOOL BOARD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 30.—Present Messrs. W. Jones (chairman), D. Price (vice-chairman), J. Williams, L. Rees, J. Ellis (clerk) and G. Evans, (attendance officer). List of Absentees.—The Attendance Officer produced schedules of those children who had irregularly attended the different schools during the last month.—The lists showed that a great number of children attended school very irregularly. The Board, taking into considera- tion the severe weather we have lately had, gave the parents another opportunity of sending their children before summoning them. Arthog New Board School.—At the previous meeting of the Board it was resolved that the Clerk write to the Education Department, requesting their advice relative to the advisability of proceeding with the erection of this school, taking into account the present depression of trade in this district; to which no reply had been received. It seemed that the ratepayers of the district were very much dissatisfied with the delay that had taken place in pro- viding proper school accommodation for that portion of the parish, and had called a public meeting, at which re- solutions were passed in favour of having a school, and later on a deputation was requested to attend the Board to ask for a new school without delay. The deputation attended this meeting; it consisted of three farmers from the district, viz., Cadwaladr Roberts, Ynyscyffylog, Thos. J. Steven, Cyfarnedd, and Mr. Lewis Williams, Crog- nau, who laid before the Board a full statement of the state of education in the district, and said that the place where the temporary school was held was insufficient to accommodate one half the children who had suffered much from want of proper tuition. After some consideration, it was resolved that the Board take steps forthwith to remedy the deficiency for the Arthog district, and that the architect, Mr. H. Jones, Dolgelley, be instructed to prepare plans for approval, and the solicitor to proceed with the conveyance of the site without further delay, in the event of there being no instructions to the contrary from the Education Department.
