CORRESPONDENCE. IMPROVEMENTS FOR ABEtiYS I'WYTH. SIR,-I have seen some useful suggestions in your paper respecting your town, and am glad to add my experience on the subject. We are an English family, and above every watering place in our own land give the preference to Aberystwyth, but to make it the perfect place one seeks a few alterations are decidedly essential, such as looking to the weights and measures both in the market and by the basket-women who sell about the town. In the latter case their lb. is little more than i. and their cup no more than about half the proper quantity, spread out on small cab- bage leaves, and as the prices are exorbitant one naturally looks to get at least honesty. Then the milk is so diluted that an infant fed only on that would hardly be supported, and it by no means even colours our tea sufficiently. I hear many also complain of the baths. Now, if all this was attended to, you could boast of the most enjoyable little watering place in the kingdom, but to insure this a few more comfortable benches on the parade are required. Yox POPULI.

PORTMADOO GRAND BAZAAR.—For some time past there has been a paucity of events commanding general interest at Port- madcc; parochial, political, and religious affairs running in their usual channels, without exciting any general in- terest. In the beginning of next month, however, a con- course of people will probably be seen at Portmadoc which will make a stir in our midst. On the 6th, 7th, and 8th August a grand bazaar will be held at the National School, in aid if the fine new church which is being erected here. Great interest is taken in it in this neighbourhood, ^r.d indeed, in most of the places on this side of Cardigan Bay' and there will be special trains on the Cambrian and Fes- tiniog Railways.
