THE PROPOSED COLLEGE FOR NORTH WALES. TO THE EDITOR. Sm.-As one of the delegates from Wrexham tc the meeting held at Chester, please allow me tc record my protest—which I expressed by my vote at the meeting—against the exclusion of Aberyst- with from the consideration of the committee ap- pointed to determine the site of the proposed College for North Wales. I freely confess that I am not, quite so enthusiastic an advocate of a Col- lege for North Wales as som" of my friends. I am fully convinced that the youtit of Wales are quite capable of holding their own, and tha.t they would be all the better foi a little healthy rivalry, with the youth of England; and I am not quite sure that we Welshmen would be any great losers if we were to lose a little of the clannishness and self- consciousness almost inseparable from our isola- tion. But it is very evident that the majority of my countrymen, backed by the distinguished com- mittee which sat on the subject eighteen months ago, are determined to have a College for North Wales, and I most willingly and cheerfully submit myself to their superior judgment. I, however, see no reason, but the contrary, why Aberystwith could not easily be made to answer all practical purposes—for there we have already something more than the nucleus of all that we require. There we have the machinery of collegiate education already in full operation. There we have build- ings erected at an original cost of upwards of £ 80,000, and to which a sum of £ 52,000 since ex. per.ded on the College must be added, which could be adapted for purely collegiate purposes at a trifling expense. There we have a locality as healthy and picturesque as could well be found in any part of the United Kingdom. And the place, it is well known, is accessible by rail from any part of North Wales at a cost of only a few shillings. Technically and geographically, Aberystwith is not is North Wales, but it must not be forgotten that the recommendation of the Departmental Com- mittee is not a College in, but for, North Wales; and I repeat I see no reason why the existing Col- lege at Aberystwith should not be adapted, as it easily could, to meet all the requirements of the six counties of North Wales.—1 am, &c„ Wrexham Vicarage.
