THE PROPOSED RESTORATION OF ABERYSTWITH COLLEGE. PUBLIC MEETING AT CARDIGAN. On Monday evening an influential and well- attended public meeting was held in Ber,hania Baptist Chapel, Cardigan, in support of a move- ment for the restoration of the University College at Aberystwith, which, it will be remembered, was lately destroyed by fire. Powerful addresses in Welsh were delivered by the Revs. T. C. Edwards, M.A., Principal of the College, and J. Prytherch, of Wern, Cardiganshire. The former gentleman remarked that thy recent annual grant of C4,000 to Aberystwith College was cer- tainly due to the generosity of the Conservative Government; and a warm tribute was passed by the Rev. Mr. Prytherch to the late Sir Hugh Owen, of London, and other prominent Welshmen, for the valuable aid they had rendered to the cause of higher education in the Principality and for the establishment of the College at Aberystwith. In Scotland the average of the entire population who received higher education was one in every 800 in Ireland, one in 3,000; and in Wales, one in 8,000; a fact which reflected both a i striking inconsistency as well as a great injustice upon the nation at large. Before the other two University Colleges hadleen opened at Bangor and Cardiff, the students at Aberystwith at no time exceeded 100, but now they numbered 132, which proved how salutary and beneficial competition was even in educational matters. A lucid descrip- tion was also given of the great amount of good results which had attended the working of the Col- lege since its establishment in 1873.-At the close of the addresses a resolution was unanimously passed that a committee of local gentlemen, with Alderman J. M. Phillips, J.P., as chairman, be appointed to canvass the town and district at an early date for subscriptions towards the College Restoration Fund.—Principal Edwards stated that, the pro- moters hoped thus to secure about 112,000 through the liberality of the people of Wales. He also inti- mated that Mr. J. W. Stephens, J.P., Llechryd, had that afternoon promised a contribution of twenty guineas towards the fund.—A vote of thanks to the rev. speakers was passed at the close.
