SWANSEA HARBOUR TRUST. On Friday next the election of Trustees will fake place, and the vacancies will be filled up. Among those who claim the support of the electors, Mr. CORT holds a high position, and is generally regarded as being singularly competent to discharge the duties of the office. Of the importance of selecting thoroughly efficient trustees there can be no doubt, and as the gentleman to whom we refer is greatly esteemed as well as for his high character as his practical knowledge of the wants of the town, he will probably head the poll.
THE MANCHESTER UNION AND THE BIR- MINGHAM LEAGUE. The tug of war between the Birmingham League and the Manchester Union promisfes to be fierce. The re- vised policy put forth by the League in its manifesto of January 19th, has evoked a counter agitation, evinced by a characteristic circular, on the part of the Union, bearing date the 15th instant, and signed by the three M.P. officials and its general secretary. The Bir- mingham League, the Nonconformists, the Secularists," and all and several of that ilk, are to be sturdily opposed. Their clamour" is not to be allowed to gain for them from the Government those concessions to which their numbers are not entitled." Friends of religious liberty in education, and supporters of our existing voluntary Elementary Schools, in connection with the Church of England and other religious bodies, are I to make known to Parliament, by petitions extensively f signed, their opinions and their determination to yield no more, nor consent to any further concessions being made. A copy is given of the resolution which Mr. I Dixon, M.P., proposed moving in the House at an early day, as well'as of the New Revolutionary Programme" of the League. It is solemnly assured that the revolu- tionary character of the documents will startle the friends of the Union, a statement which we are not disposed to contradict. A form of petition is added, j tame and common-place in tone, adverting to not a |' single vital and acknowledged principle in civil or f religious liberty, but stiff, formal, and expedient to the j highest degree. It is urgently requested that the subject be taken up without delay, and petitions be sent, "however few the signatures." The parochial machi- l nery throughout England and Wales is to be oiled and set in mation. Let the 15,000 parishes speak in some degree;" but "none under sixteen years are to sign." In the hope that it may excite emulation, we commend the promptitude and zeal of the Union to the friends-the real friends—of Religious Liberty in Education." A momentous contest is imminent, which will, we believe, continue for some time. It is a period for the friends of religious equality to keep their eyes » open, and exert all their available influence. Let peti- tions be met with petitions. In particular, the Princi- pality, with its legion of chapels, can do something by way of petitions, and in many places public meetings may be held to set the matter fairly before the people, Dot omitting another suggestion in the Union circular —" Invite local papers to report meetings." It is a noble crusade, and we hope Wales will prove true to itself, to the League, and to the principles involved in a demand for unsectarian and undenominational teaching in State-supported schools.
THE SUSPECTED SUICIDE AT CARDIFF — CORONER'S INQUEST. An inquest was held yesterday at the Town Hall, before Mr. R. L. Reece, on the body of Julia Rees who was found in the canal on Thursday morning last. The j first witness called was Jane Brown, single woman who l lives in No. 4, Nelson-street.

Charles Wood, labonrer, living at No. 6, Halket-street, Canton, said he was going to his work at seven o'clock in the morning, and when passing the Custom House, he saw something floating in the water opposite Mr. Watson's timber-yard.

He examined her, but found no marks of violence. The jury, without any hesitation, returned a verdict of Found drowned."

St ANILE MANUFACTORY, 242, BUTE-ROAD, CARDIFF, Nov. 29, 1871. Mr. W. DAVID,—Sir,—You ask me "my candid opinion of the Elias Howe' Machine.' To that question there can be but one reply from any practicsl worker or mechanic—I know the working and mechanical qualities of about 12 machines, but I must confess, that for all purposes 11 one machine, ease in working, accuracy of stitch and durability, it surpasses all others. All who have bought the 'Elias Howe' on ny advice are thoroughly satisfied.—I remain, m.Iln' yotirs truly, W. B. BLISS. From the STANDARD, November 3rd, 1869. CONTEST BETWEEN SEWING MACHI-NES-An interesting trial of sewing machines lately took place at London, Canada, in the pre- sence of his Royal Holiness Prince Arthur. The result was given in a despatch to thE London house of Elias Howe, 64, Regent- street, by Mr. L. C. Mendon, the manager in Canada. It appears that that house recehed the first prize at the provincial Exhibition for family and manufacturing machines. The contest lasted eight hours, and the H)we' machine proved victorious.Anglo- American Times. Catalogues and sanples of work sent free by Post on application to W.

SATURDAY, FEB. 24, 1872. J ON Tuesday next St. Paul's Cathedral will be thronged with worshippers, and the streets crowded by curious and applauding crowds. We have no intention to discuss the propriety of the proceed- ing. It is enough that the QUEEN and her Court, the Peers and the Commons, the officers of State and the favoured members of the Upper Ten, are | to assemble for the purpose of performing an act of devotion in the principal church of the Metro- polis. Everybody rejoices to know that the PRINCE j of WALES is restored to health, and the warmest aspirations for his future career are expressed on every hand. But what we are most of all con- cerned with is the affair as a spectacle. Thousands of persons will flock to the Metropolis in the hope of seeing not only the QUEEN, but the notabilities of the land, surrounded by their glittering paraphernalia. We fear they are destined to be disappointed. The finest part of the show will be the crowd surging in the streets, crowning the parapets, filling the windows, and occupying every available coign of vantage. Visi- tors may be assured that they will not be able to "see the wood because of the trees," and even the decorations may probably be inspected to greater advantage on the subsequent day. Then, again, the procession is likely to be a failure notwith- standing the stimulating efforts of the Press. They still manage these things better in France, albeit Paris has been shorn of the glories of the Empire. The SPEAKER is to "rattle his bones over the stones," in an ancient coach, attended by one Life-guardsman, the inference being that the First Commoner needs no protection from the People, the solitary cuirassier serving to illustrate confidence in the populace, on the principle that a little light makes darkness visible. Then the LORD CHANCELLOR, by permission of the Upper House, is to be bowled along at a due distance before the SOVEREIGN, whose conscience he is supposed to keep. The Peers are for the most part to be brought down in the Citizen steamboats to Paul's Wharf, near which confiding NIGEL lodged the LORD MAYOR and SHERIFFS will assume their customary gaudy state, go through the ancient pantomimic performance of closing the gates of Temple Bar, and, after rendering up the City sword to the QUEEN, and doing homage, ride bareheaded, on led horses, "loaned" by the artillery, before the august lady, who will be the cynosure of all eyes upon the auspicious occasion. Then there is to be a gorgeous procession of nine open semi-state carriages," in which, surrounded by es- corts of cavalry, and preceded by trumpeters blow- ing fanfares of silver sound," her MAJESTY, the convalescent Heir Apparent-should the health of his Royal Highness permit-the PRINCESS of WALES, and the high officials of the household, will ride amidst applauding thousands to the church. Of course guns will be fired, bells be rung, banners waved, and flaming ascriptions of praise ascend from the worshippers beneath the mighty dome. Triumphal arches will span the streets gonfalons and Venetian masts, drapery and military bands, Yeomen of the Guard, Beef- eaters," and footmen, lavishly bedecked with scarlet cloth and purple velvet and costly bullion- lace-the envy of plebeian flunkeys-will, also, lend attraction to the scene. Still there seems to be a deficiency of the representative element in the programme, and very little in the spectacle to justify the enormous prices already asked for eligible seats upon the line of route. However remonstraces have been addressed to the authorities upon the point, and, perhaps, for once and at the eleventh hour, a supreme effort will be made to please that portion of the public partial to the "pomp and circumstance" of military display. And, after all, in demanding something for their money, the People may be right. They pay heavily to keep up a Court and Army, which, estimated at its cost, should be second in splen- dour to no other in the world. Let them, by all means, catch a glimpse of the glories in which only few can hope to participate, and stimulate their loyalty by gazing at the QUEEN, surrounded by the trappings of rank and the equipage of state As for Wales, it would almost seem that the LORD CHAMBER- LAIN is oblivious of its existence, as only few invitations have been issued to the municipal authorities. Though not less loyal, it is so re mote as to be beyond the ken of Viscount SIDNEY, whose geographical knowledge is pro- bably limited, and the claims of the Principality to be adequately represented are in danger of I being overlooked. But Welshmen will not forget what is due to themselves and may possibly yet determine upon celebrating, in some way or other, the restoration to health of a Prince who takes his title from their [country, and who is as deeply regarded by them as by any subjects of the CROWN. Already the Mayors of Cardiff and Swansea have called upon their fellow-townsmen to keep holiday on the 27th. If the movement thus initiated should result in a general observance of the day, we trust the thanks- givings will assume a practical characto: and that I in our churches oad chapvls the yuffitfiog poor. confined to beds of sickness in our public hospitals, will not be forgotten. Let but charity flow in bounteous streams, and augment the funds of in- stitutions among the chiefest blessings to humanity in a Christian land, and the celebration of the PRINCE'S recovery will not have been altogether in vain.
THE HEALTH OF CARDIFF. The public will learn with satisfaction that the health uf Cardiff is remarkably good, and that the town enjoys an almost exceptional immunity from small-pox, in donsquenee, it is believed, of the care with which Dr. PAINE has insisted upon isolating cases as soon as dis- covered. We trust that the vigilance which has dis- tinguished our able medical officer will not be relaxed, and that, under his enlightened superintendence, the inhabitants may continue to be exempt from that dreaded disease.
