AT a Meeting of the Inhabitants, held in the Town Hall, Carditf, oil Tuesday Evening, the 29th ult., convened by the Mayor, for the purpose of considering the reports of her Majesty's Couimissoners on Education in Wales, It was resolved, with one dissentient, on the motion of the Rev. William Jones, seconded by the Rev. Evan Jones, 1st,—"That, in the opinion of this meeting, the Reports on Education in Wales, lately presented to her Majesty's Govern- ment, exhibit a greater desire on the part of the Commissioners to make out a case for the interference of Government in the education of the people, than to furnish correct information with reference to their real condition." On the mo'ion of the Rev. Evan Morgan, seconded by the Rev D. R. Stephen, and supported by the Rev. Thomas Thomas, 2nd,—"That this meeting deprecates the employment of Commissioners for investigating into the educational state of Wales, who were all utter strangers to the language of the people, and, in religious opinion, opposed to the vast majority of the popuiation. It declares that the reports of the Commis- sioners arc for the most part made up of information derived from partial sources, and based upon unwarrantable conclu- sions and isolated occurrences; and that throughout there is evinced in them an inveterate disposition to exaggerate the de- fects, and conceal the virtues of the Welsh people. This meet- ing, therefore, condemns the said reports as unworthy of confi- dence, unjust in their bearings upon the inhabitants of the Principality, and calculated to mislead her Majesty's Govern- ment." On the motion of the Rev. David Jones, seconded by the Rev. Lewis Powfll, 3rd,—" That a copy of the je resolutions be sent to Lord John Russell, signed by the chairman, '1 behalf of this meeting,and that they be advertised in the 'limes, Merlin, Principality, and Merthyr Guardian, newspapers." On the motion of Mr. W. Williams, seconded by C. Vaehell, Esq, "That the thanks of the meeting be given to the Mayor for his kindness in convening the meeting, and for the use of the Town Hall." C.
