SWANSEA. On Friday last Mr. Hussey Vivian presented petitions from the inhabitants of Briton Ferry in favour of Inter- national Arbitration also from the inhabitants of Tai- bach and Briton Ferry in favour of the Repeal of the 25th Clause of the Elementary Education Act. A STIPENDIARY MAGISTRATE.-The Town Council has aPPOJnted a committee to enquire into the expediency and desirability of appointing a Stipendiary Magistrate for the town and borough It is assumed that the salary will be fixed at between five and six hundred pounds a year, and that the salary of a permanent clerk would be about 2150. It is further believed that the fees now paid to the magistrates' clerk amount to nearly 21,000 per annum, and to set the matter at rest an abstract of the fees paid to the clerk for the last three years is being pre- pared. This is a step in the right direction, and the pub- lic are discussing the question and waiting the decision of the Council. CONCERT.—A concert of vocal and instrumental music was given at the Music Hall, on Friday evening last, under the patronage of the Mayor and other gentlemen of this neighbourhood. The programme, which embraced a well-selected number of pieces, was well sustained. EXTRAORDINARY LAMBING.—We learn of Mr. J. M. Harding, of Town Hill Farm, Swansea, that seventeen of his ewes gave birth to thirty-seven lambs. Three of the ewes brought trebles, and the remaining fourteen brought doubles. ° THE GOOD TEMPLAR CAUSE.—A meeting, under the auspices of the Good Templars of Swansea, was convened at the Ragged School-room, on Saturday evening. There was a large and attentive audience present. The chief speaker of the evening was Mr. Pyper, the grand worthy Chief Templar of Ireland. The Rev. J. Whitlock, of Pell- street chapel, presided. He stated that he was not a Good Templar, though he had been an abstainer all his life. He had been convinced by the arguments of Mr. Pyper, and he shonld certainly join the'order. A vote of thanks to the lscturer closed the meeting. SWANSEA SCHOOL BOARD.-A very important letter from the Education Department was discussed on Friday last at the Swansea School Board, whose comments on the same we reported in our Saturday's issue. The letter is a very lengthy document, and thoroughly discussed the meagre Educational provisions already in existence. The Board are of opinion that the total deficiency of School ac- commodation within the borough cannot be reckoned at less than 3270 children, and that when they have annexed the outlying districts of Lansamlet Lower, Clase and Pen- derry, there will be a further deficency of school room for 1364--the two items added shewing that fresh school ac- commodation must soon be provided for 4630 children. Perhaps many ratepayers will now open their eyes and begin to grumble at the possibitity of having to pay an extra 6d. or 8d. or Is. in the pound; but surely it is better to pay for schools than for prisons or unions.
