John Morgan, Esq., Secretary. THE rapid growth of the town of Cardiff and its JL suburbs during the last 20 years has rendered the establishment of a School for imparting tirst-class educa- tion an urgent necessity. Unlike most towns, it possesses no old foundation available for the puipose, and the want can only be met by private enterprise. To supply the need, a Company has been formed and registered under the provisions of the Limited Liability Acts. The capital will be JE6,000, consisting of 300 shares of X20 each. Upwards of half this amount has already been subscribed. Pupils will be admitted to the School upon the nomi- nation of shareholders, each share conferring the privi- lege of one nomination. The Head Master will be a graduate of Oxford or Camoridge, and he will have such a stipend as will ensure the services of a scholar of acknowledged reputation. The entire management of the undertaking will be vested in the Council, three of whom will retire annually by rotation with the right to offer themselves for re- election. As soon as the necessary arrangements can be made, suitable school premises will be erected, and, from in- quiries made regarding other institutions, it is believed that the capital named wil amply provide all the accom- modation that will be required. An appropriate site, centrally situate within the limits of the borough of Cardiff, will be selected f^rthe erection. For the benefit of parents not resident in Cardiff, it is proposed to give to the Head Master and others the right to take boarders at their own houses. Pending the erection of the building, efforts will be made to obtain temporary premises, so that pupils may be received at the commencement of the Autumn Term. Every effort will be made to found scholarships for the benefit of the pupils. The increased appreciation of the value of education generally, and the great success of kindred establishments in all parts of the country, as well as the very flattering reception already accorded to this project, afford the best guarantee for its success.

PULVERMACHER'S PATENT GALVANIC CHAIN-BANDS, BELTS, BAT- \jr TERIES, RECENTLY IMPROVED. Approved by the Academy of Medicine at Paris and other Medical authorities in England and abroad. This Self-Applicable Physical Curative, unlike noxious drugs, is perfectly harmless and of an efficacy vastly superior to all other external remedies. Owing to the physiological, physical, and chemical effects of the Electricity they gently and permanently impart into the system, these Appliances exercise an internal action, promoting the digestion, circulation, and nutrition, thereby assisting Nature in her efforts to restore the normal balance of health and vigour in a de- bilitated constitution; hence the remarkable cures thev dailv effect in cases of Rheumatism Lumbago Sciatica Neuralgia Gout Head and Tooth ache Indigestion Liver Complaint Paralysis Nervous Deafness Epilepsy General and Local Debility Functional Disor- ders. &c.. &c. After all other remedies have failed, and thus populari- sing Electricity in accordance with the authentic enco- miums in the Medical and Scientific Press. Recent improvements in these appliances by the Inventor render their self-application extremely com- fortable and effective, and thus remediate former incon- veniences. ACADBMIE DE MEDICINE, PARIS.—Extract of an official Report at a meeting, April I, 1851. The Voltaic Chains of Mr. Pulvermacher are really a most wonderful apparatus." The Committee beg to propose to the Academy to address their thanks to Mr. Pulvermacher for his most interesting communication. Adopted.—Bulletin de I'Academie, Tome xvi. No. 13." SUCCESSIVE IMPROVEMENTS have led to the following testimonials by the elite of the Medical Profession in the metropolis—Such as Sir C. Locock, M.D., Bart Sir J. R. MartiD, Bart., C.B.F.,R.C.S.,F.S.A., and F.R.S., &c., &c., &c. DB. J. PEREIRA, F.R.S., F.L.S., in his "Materia Medica," page 53. 1851. Fourth edition :— "The application of the Voltaic circuit has been largely prescribed, and has become a popular remedy in the form of Pulvermacher's Galvanic Chains. They should be worn so as to encircle the part affected, in cases of Rheumatism, Paralysis, &c. They are re- garded by practitioners as a valuable and convenient means of applying the continuous Voltaic current." THE LANCET,' No. 1, Vol II, 1856:- "This ingenious apparatus of Mr. Pulvermacher has c now stood the test for some years.It may be used by the medical attendant, or by the patient himself and the operator can now diffuse the galvanic influence over an extensive surface, or concentrate it on a single point. In these days of medico-galvanic quackery it is a relief to observe the very plain and straightforward manner in which Mr. Pulvermacher's apparatus is recommended to profession." OAUTION.-PwoLVERMACHER S VOLTAIC APPLIANCES have, by their unparalleled curative success incited envious speculators—unable, as they are, 1>o' infringe his patent—to an absurd competition with artiolf« falsely represented as Electrical; therefore observe that no Galvanic or Voltai* Bands or Belts can be genuine unless bearing the fac simile of J L Pn-v™ MACHER'S signature en the box.
