Boys' School commenced 1814 Girls' School 1833 Infants' School 1854 The number of children now under instruction exceeds 300. THESE Schools were established with a view to satisfy the moral and social necessity of affording to the children of the Labouring Population of this rapidly-increasing town, Education of a useful and religious character, free from sectarian peculiarities and for a number of years now, they have been conducted with considerable success. At present, the Boys' School, and Girls and Infants' Schools, are carried on in premises far removed from each other, which, for many reasons, is in- convenient the accommodation also afforded is inadequate to the demand. For these considerations, and on account of the dilipidated condition and ineligible site of the Boys' School room, in conjunction with the advantages that will arise from having all the branches of the institu- tion brought together under one roof, the committee has determined with the concurrence of the subscribers, to dispose of the present premises, and to apply the proceeds towards the Erection of a Commodious Building, with a handsome exterior, although not of an unnecessarily expensive character. To this end, the committee has agreed to lease for 99 years, a piece of ground near the bottom of tow-hill, the property of Sir Charles Morgan, Bart who has liberally met the wishes of the committee, by charging a very reduced ground-rent for the same. To carry out this object in its integrity, JE1500 will be required, in addition to the proceeds of the sale of the old premises; and the committee now appeals with confi- dence to the known liberality of the friends of education in the town and neighbourhood of Newport, for donations towards the completion of the design.

I .J.iiddleton, near Manchester. Sir,—I am now 44 years of age, and I have been afflit-ted with an asthmatic cough since I was a bov of fifteen years of age .) during that time I have resorted to every means in my power to remove it, but in vain, until last Sunday, when I sent Tor a small box of Dr. Locock's Waters. I have taken two boxes since, and from the effects they have had upon me, I feel no doubt of a speedy recovery. G. STBINGER.. | Witness, M. LYNC", Chemist, Market Stieet. J ANOTHER SURPRISING CURE OF ASTHMA. From Mr. William Bov/e'i, Cartlett, Haverfordwest. Sir,—Having been afflicted for many years with a violent cough,and asthma, and having tried all other medicines LI vain, I was recommended to try Dr. Locock's Wafers. I sent to you for a box, and, to my great astonishment, 1 found reJiefthe very first night, and have continued to get better ever since. Their effects are really wonderful. My appetite is now good, whereas formerly I could scarcely keep any food on my stomach. I have myself since recommended them to several persons, who have all received the greatest relief from them. (Signed) WM. BOWE> ANOTHER CURE OF ASTHMATIC COUGH OF LONG i STANDING. I City Road, Haverfordwest. | Sir,-I am happy to inform you that I have experienced the greatest benefit from taking only two boxes of Dr. Locock's Pulmonic Wafers, which you were kind enough to recommend me. i Previously to my taking them, 1 could scarcely walk without the 1 g e;itest difficulty of breathins, and my cou-h would then increase to such a degree. that I was nearly suffocated. I had not, for many months, slept for more than half an hour at a time but lam now able to sleep all night without coughing. lean truly recommend them to those who are similarlv afflicted, as a most invaluable remedy, and you are at perfect liberty to make my case public, if you think proper. I am, &c "JoHN JOHN, Cabinet maker." CURE OF SEVEN YEARS' COUGH. From the Rev, Geo. Dawson, Primitive Methodist Minister. Bridge Street, Peel, Isle of Man, Jan. 29, 1851. Gentlemen,—My wife having been afflicted with a severe cough for seven years last past, during the last spring was brought so low, that Ler life was despaired of, when a friend recommended her to try Dr. Locock's Pulmonic Wafers. She did so, and the benefit she derived from them was truly amazing. She was, after taking a few boxes, again able to return to her domestic duties. I think it would be a great blessing to the afflicted in our island, were they advertised here, as they appear not to be known. Yon are at liberty to make what use you may think proper of my testimony.J "I am, your's, &c. GEO. DAWSON, Primitive Methodist Minister" IMPORTANT TO ALL WHO SING. From Mr. Edward Page, late Director of the Choir and Organist of St. Marie's Catholic Churc h, Newport, Monmouthshire. "Gentlemen,—Having frequently suffered rmuch-from relaxation of the throat, I have often been obliged to lesort to various prepitrations; but since I have had the good fortune to try Dr. Locock's Pulmonic Wafers, I am now but seldom obliged to resort to the-, for the extraordinary good effects they have produced are most surprising. Even when the throat appears to be completely exhausted, and the voice to be nearly gone, two or three (at most four) will, in the short space of half an hour or so, completely restore its flexibility ani power, and they do not act as a mere temporary exciting remedy, nor do they leave anv lassitude after. Having felt the great value of the remedy, 1 feel it a duty to generally recommend it, as I am convinced that all persons will find immense benefit from the general and persevering use of it. "EDWARD 10, Stow Hill, Xewport." To Singers and Public Speakers, they are invaluable, as in a few hours they remove all hoarseness, and increase the power and flexibilitj of the voice.

THE manifold advantages to the Heads of families from the possession of a Medicine of known ulhcacy, that may be resorted to with confidence, and used with success in cases of temporary sickness, occurring in families more or less every day, are so ob\ious to all, that no question can be raised of its importance to every house keeper in the kingdom. They are an excellent aperient, crf'ate appetite, relieve languour, and invigorate the spirits j and it taken after an indulgence at table, they quickly restore the system to its natural state of repose. For upwards of nine years (writes Mr. Thos.Province, of Wiiichtiiore-hill, ,\1 iddll'o'rx), I have experienced the efficacy of this excellent medicine. I had long previously been afflicted with headache and indices;ion but a friend having induced me to make a trial of Franipton's Pills, I now inform you that a few doses gave rae great rdief; and durng this long period of time, I have taken them in pre- ference to any other medicine; and I have the happiness of saying that I never had a better state of health, which I attribute to Frampton's Pills. I beg further to add, that this medicine is in general use by my family, and we know of nothing to equal it. Persons of a FULL HABIT, who are subject to flead- ache, Giddiness, Drowsiness, and Singing in the Ears, arising from too great a flow of Biood to the Head, should never be without them, as many dangerous symptoms will be entirely carried off by their immediate use. For FiiMALBS, these Pills are truly excellent, re- moving all obstructions, the distressing Head-ache so very prevalent with the sex; Depression of Spirits,I)ulness of Sight,Nervous rlffections, Blotches, Pimples,and Sullcw- ness of the Skin and produce a heaithy complexcn. To MOTHERS they are confidently recommended as the best medicine that can be taken; and for children of all ages, they are unequalled. As a pleasant, safe, and easy Aperient, they unite the re- commendation of ainila operation with the most succesful effect. By regulating the dose, according to the age and strength of the patient, they become suitable for every case, in either sex, that can be required. Sold by all Medicine Vendors,Price Is. l^d. and 2s. 9d. per box. See the name of Thomas Prout, 22U, Strand, London," on the Government Stamp. DURATION OF PARLIAMENTS. -The present Parlia-" ment has long since entered the fourth year of its exist once, it having been clected in July, 1852. The preceding Parliament endured just five years. The Parliament of 1841, which induced the accession of Sir R. Peel to office, may be said to have died a natural death, as it was not dissolved till the end of the session of 1847. The Peel Parliament of 1835, on the other hand, only lasted two years and a half, and the first reformed Parliament only two years. The Parliament elected on the accession of Queen Victoria endured barely four years. No general election has taken place in the middle of winter since that of January, 1835, nearly ten years ago. This produced the memorable Poel Parliament, convoked shortly after the dismissal of the Melbourne Ministry by his late Ma- jesty King William IV and to the adverse majorities of which Sir R. Peel was forced to succumb in the space o two months. GUN-UOATS.—The Admiralty arc using every exertion to procure the constructiou of a very large flotilla of steam gun-boats, of the class which have been found so useful in the Baltic and Black Seas. Not only are the royal naval dockyards in full operation with the craft, but the services of the the most eminent private builders have been called into requisition. Mr. John Laid, the well-known builder of this port, is constructing ten >. wooden steam screw gun-boats, of 240 tons each, and about GO-horss power, the machinery being made by £ Messrs. Penn and Son, of London. They will be similar^ i, in size and armament to the Lynx, Arrow, Viper, Snake, t Beagle, and other gun-boats which have become ;i famous in the history of the operations of this war. Mr. Laird is building five of these boats at, his yard, on the margin of the great float at Birkenhead, and five on this side. Although the order for them was only received i from the Admiralty six weeks ago, about 1,000 feet ofcgtl: building have been already erected at these yards, and ,y fitted with gas, so that the men can work at the v^els v both night and day. Ab mt 130 sawyers are alsj.-lfusy at J work, preparing timber. Four of them are welt advanced f in frame, aud the whole are to bo rclfdy for «ea by March next. Mr. Laird is also con^tiEficting some iron mortar vessels, one of which was launched last week, and Í is now at Portsmouth.—Liverpool Standard. • Newport, Saturday, December 1, 18-55.
