To the Editor of the Monmouthshire Merlin. Newport, January 20ih, 1846. Sir,—In looking over your paper a few days since, I noticed the enquiiies of a correspondent, who is anxious to know what were the coat of arms, &c., worn by native Welch punces. some centuries since, which enquiries strongly reminded me of what has frequently occuried lo my miod, 89 being strange, that an attempt has not been made by some of our zealous Welshmen, to try 10 gel an heraldic representation of Gwalad y Cymry inserted into the coat of arms of Great Britain. It appears to me to be au over?ight, or want of thought, that such is not done, as according to what I have read some years since, in Evau's Geography Ihey make use ef three lions, in two quaiters, to represent. Eng- land, which Ithink is inserted twice for wantof something else lo fill each quarter, therefore, I think in these days of improve- ment, it will not be thought perhaps an art of disloyally if some greftt roen would petition our beloved Queen 10 consenl 1011 re- presentation being put, of the land that gives her first born son the title, she no doubt prides in. In the next issue of silver and gold coins, why is the leek not entwined with therntc, sham- rock, and thistle, and why is the goat or harp of Wales not in one of the four corners of the Arms of Great Britaio. Uodoubt- edtyititfromthe want of Weishmen endfavonnagtogetsueh inserted, and auuffdly il wt old be If they were 10 arouse and | eii- tion in favour of such a concession. It" to be regretted that Welshmen are more apt to pride tbemselves in deeds 01 vure, and what their ancestors may have been, than in attempting to irn- piove their present condition as a people. Oh that the yallles and hills of Old Gwalia should be made to re-clio with tuch efforts at improving our filce liS were made some weeks since at the meeting for education at the Council House in this town.
