THE PROPOSED SALE OF ALL SAINTS' CHURCH. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. £ »IR,—-1 hope in justice to the Welsh people of Cardiff that you will allow the following letter to appear in one of your next issues. I have got Mr. Noel's permission to publish it. It will show the public the intention of Lady Bute in reference to the Church of All Saints' (Welsh Church).—Yours &c., M. J. March 2nd, 1872. A LETTER BY THE REV, D. NOEL, FIRST CURATE OF THE WELSH CHURCH. Vicarage, Eglwysfach, Conway, Feb. 14, 1872. Dear Madam,—In reply to your letter just received 3,sking me if I have any account of the laying of the foun- dation. stone of the Welsh Church at Cardiff, I write to say that I much regret I have not; but I well remember some of the circumstances in connection with what was to Hie at the time a most happy event, and I think it was an event which gladdened the hearts of very many poor Welsh people at Cardiff then many of whom have, notwithstand- ing many discouraging circumstances, clung to the Welsh Church to this day, which, when you consider all things re- lating to this Church, is to me a matter of surprise. As you may suppose, I have always taken the most lively interest in the prosperity of the Welsh Church at Cardiff, not simply because I can say without boasting, that I was in God's hand the means of founding it; but also because I succeeded in gathering together into that Church a large number of people from all parts of (Jardiff,—people whose attachment to the Church and whose simple piety and readiness to advance the interests of the Church in every way, was far more fervent than I have seen since in any pa- rish I have been, and I think I am not saying more than what is true when I say that I believe they are to this day strongly attached to me personally, and there may be a peculiar reason for this, for you may not know that my going to Cardiff was quite an experimental movement, in- stituted, I believe, by the Bishop. It was thought that there were many Welsh people strongly attached to the Church then, but who had no means of worshipping in their own language, and the Bishop asked me if I would take the curacy, and see what could be done and on the first Sunday we met, in the National School-room, my congre- gation amounted to only eight, but in less than three months from that time the congregation had so increased that the room was crowded, and for this reason it was decided that a Welsh Church was much needed in Car- diff, and applications were made in different quarters for funds to build a church, and the Bishop himself, with his well known liberality, and almost the very first, promised 1:20 towards the object, and in a few months about £ 200 had been promised and collected. But just at this time Lady Bute began to take a lively interest in this new movement, and was very anxious to do something for the Welsh people in Cardiff. She sent for me by the late Mr. Priest Richards, to come to the Castle to talk the matter over, and I shall never forget her kindness of heart, when she spoke of her anxiety to do something for the Welsh people of Cardiff—when she said What can I do Mr. Noel?" Well, I said, all we want is a Church; we now are crowded in the schoolroom, and besides, ma.ny who love the Church, and who prefer the Welsh language, have an objection to attend in a school-room, which, besides being inconvenient to sit, is also not clean, where so many children meet all the week. "Quite so," she replied, "and very naturally too." "Well," she said again, I have been told that you have a good con- gregation, and for this reason I think it right that the Welsh people should have a church, and I will see what can be done." In about a week after this took place Mr. Leigh Morgan came to me and said that Lady Bute had made up her mind to build a Welsh church at her own cost, and that the money which had been collected should be applied to build a parsonage house." This was done the money was deposited in the bank for that pur- puse. In a short time after this the foundation stone was laid by the youthful Marquis, and there were present on the occasion Lady Bute, the Bishop and a large number of clergy. I well remember how delighted all were that they now had a prospect of having a church for themselves. I left Cardiff very soon after for Gellygaer, and I then lost sight of the people, but I have never from that day to this ceased re- gretting that I left Cardiff, and I am certain that an effi- cient Welsh preacher would have a fine congregation in the present church. I believe that the sole reason for the heartless proposal of selling the Welsh Church to Roman Catholics is the inefficiency of the present incumbent to officiate in the Welsh language. It was the fashion, when I was in Cardiff, to snub the poor Welsh, and they felt that they were neglected. I hope that, out of reverence to the memory of good and pious Lady Bute, this iniquitous proposal will yet not be consummated. I have been much pained even at the attempt to undo all my labours there. Excuse these hurried sheets, and believe me, yours very truly, NOEL, Mrs. Jenkins, Cardiff." Vicar of Eglwysfach.
SPARKS FROM A WELSH ANVIL. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR,-It is now generally recognised that the names of almost all our mountains and rivers are of Welsh or Celtic origin. See Taylor's Names of Places. There are also a few words having reference to female dress and female libour, that have been traced to Welsh. I do not, how- ever, think that all English words have yet been traced to their proper source and I here submit a few for which I claim a Welsh origin. Modern Lexicographers give the word bother as a corrup- tion of pother, to puzzle, as if in a cloud of dust (powder); but Dr. Johnson derived it from both ears, to bother-to a 'noy one. at both ears. Is it not, rather, derived from Welsh byddar, deaf ? Cf. Byddaru clustiau, to make one's e irs deaf. To explain bugle and bugle-horn, a French word bugle, an ox, appears to have been coined. This is a plausible derivation, if it can be proved that such a word ever ex- isted in French. There is, however, the Welsh bv/gail, a shepherd, and bugail-gorn, a shepherd's horn, or more literally, a cowherd's horn. From bit, an ox, and gail, ffailio (obs.) to take care of. Ar ail, to overlook. The root bu, an ox, is now obsolete, except in compounds. Cf Bu-ivch, bu-arth (garth, an enclosure), beu-dy (a cowhouse) in Glamorgan glowty, i. e. gwlaw-dy (a house to shelter from the rain); bu-allt (Builth, gallt, a height generally covered with wood; Latin Alta, Allt. Walis near Car- marthen Voel-allt in Cardigan; Gallt-bridd; Twyn-y- bridd-allt in Glamorgan). Beagle also, a small hunting dog, comes from bicgeilgi and not from Celtic belJlJ or Welsh bach, little. TEA Y C. UNNONE.
A telegram through the cable corroborates the state- ment of Mr. Gladstone, that Mr. Fish's reply to Earl Granville left by Saturday's mail. The principal jour- nals agree in representing its tone as eminently pacific. Trespassers in the vicinity of Royalty are likely, after recent events, to meet with condign punishment. Charles James, a clerk, having forced himself into a position near the Queen's waiting-room at Paddington Station, when her Majesty was about to depart for Windsor, refused to move when requested, and as- saulted the police who ejected him. For this little es- capade he was brought up at Marylebone Police-court, and Mr. Mansfield fined him 95, or in default two V months' hard labour in the House of Correction. The money was not forthcoming. A CURIOUS CALCULATION.—The Barrow Times, says that the speech of Sir John Coleridge in the Tichborne cise occupied 140 hours, and is perhaps the longest speech on record. It is true that Burke's speech in the Warren Hastings trial, the whole of which lasted 148 days, has been oftentimes quoted as a specimen of f orensic endurance, but it lasted only a little more than three days, merely a ninth part of the time occupied by the Attorney-General. Brougham's speech on behalf of Queen Caroline, Lord Campbell's charge in the easo of Palmer, and Lord Hope in the case of Madeline Snith, occupied from seven to nine hours each. If average rates be calculated, then Sir John Coleridge must have ripoken at the rate of 20 of our columns per diem of closely printed matter. Now 26 days' speaking gives 520 ordinary newspaper columns, containing, as near as may be 112,000 lines—about one million words. If these 520 columns were stretched out end to end they would measure nearly 780 feet, and were the lines extended in the same way would measure about a mile and three-quarters, taking each of the 520 columns at an average weight of 18 pounds, then the required Treight of type would approximately be 9,360 pounds, or 4 tons and 400 pounds.
MONEY MARKET.—MONDAY. The Markets continue firm. In the American Market the Ten-Forty Bonds are J higher but Eries are -41, lower. In Home Railway Stocks there is a rise of 1 in North Eastern of f in Lancashire and Yorkshire of f in Great Western, North British, and South Eastern Deferred; of -12 in Great Northern, London and South Western and of i in London and North Western, and Midland. There is no noteworthy change in Foreign Stocks. There is a fair demand for discount in the general market at 2 to 3 per cent. for short fine paper. From St. Petersburg it is mentioned that forged rail- way shares to the amount of 500,000 silver roubles have been discovered. ————

METROPOLITAN CATTLE MAPKET.-MONDAT. The cattle trade to-day has been steady in tone. The supplies of stock have been moderate, and the general quality has been excellent. English beasts have come to hand in moderate numbers and prime condition; there has been a fair sprinkling of foreign. The demand has been steady, and the best Scots and crosses have made 5s 2d to 5s 4d per 8 lbs. There has been a fair supply of sheep in the pens, and the quality has been good. A healthy demand has pre- vailed, and prices have been well supported. The best Downs and half-breds, in the wool, have sold at 7s. 2d. to 7s. 4d. ditto shorn, 6s. to 6s. 2d. per 81bs. Lambs have sold less freely, and have fallen fully 4d. per 81b., the quotation being 8s. to 8s. 4d. per 81b. The demand for calves has been quiet at about late rates. Pigs have sold on former terms.
WHITLAND MONTHLY MARKET. This market was held yesterday. The attendance was good in cattle, sheep, and pigs, which were easily disposed of at advanced prices. Butter in casks from lljd. to 12d. 2 per lb. The fair was. well attended with buyers, so we hope the farmers will continue to bring in their stocks, which is the only means to get it a good market.
SUSPECTED MURDER AT CARLISLE. On Saturday morning, as we briefly announced yes- serday, the dead body of a man named James Patrick was found at Carlisle under circumstances that lead to the supposition that he has been murdered. A large mark was found under his left ear, evidently caused by a rail which had been torn from an adjoining fence. Three prostitutes and a navvy, named Campbell, have been apprehended, and charged with been concerned in Patrick's death. Campbell's boots, it is said, corre- spond with marks found near the body. An inquest has been opened, and adjourned for post-mortem exa- mination.
NEW POSTAL REGULATIONS. The halfpenny card system is to receive a new deve- lopment. Private cards are to be conveyed for a half- penny stamp. The public is thus no longer to be re- stricted in its halfpenny correspondence to the use of the present post cards. The authorities, on the other hand, intend to abandon the present practice of selling single cards for a halfpenny at the post-offices. In future the post-offices will not sell less than a dozen cards, and a halfpenny will be charged for the cards themselves over and above the price of the twelve stamps. —————
MR. CARDWELL'S PLAN. It would be a strange thing (the Spectator says) if Mr. Cardwell saved this Government, but it is not at all impossible. The more his plan of army reform is studied the better it will be liked, more especially by those who believe, as we do, that, bad as war may be, military discipline is the mest effective education through which the majority of mankind can pasis. No other can so develope the virtues of obgdience, trust- fulness, and sympathy, while no other can invigorate so rapidly the permanent physique of the people. One year of steady drill, good food, and regular exercise would add one-third to the strength of the nation, as much to its industry, and probably more-to its average size measured around the chest. Mr. Cardwell's speech was as free from rose-colour as from eloquence, and, unlike most speeches, left on the mind an imprestioa less favourable than that produced by the detailed plan.
THE CHANCES OF ASSASSINATION. The record of attempted assassinations goes to show that it is rarely successful when even skilled men at- tempt the lives of great personages. In 1857 Pianori, who was subsequently guillotined, actually seized the bridle of the Emperor's horse in the Champs Elysees, in spite of innumerable police agents in private clothes who constantly accompanied him in his percgrinatious, and fired « bout portant in his face. Tke muzzle was so close that the shot burnt the moustache, but missed its aim, and yet Pianori was reputed one of the best shots in Italy and France, and had practised con- stantly for two years. Orsini's bombs were hurled at the Emperor's carriage before the Opera at a distance of four paces, and produced no effect, except that of killing several persons who were standing at a conside- rable distance from the carriage. The Pole Berezowski's attempt on the life of the Emperor of Russia, in 1856, during the Paris Exhibition, was made under equally favourable circumstances. Berezowski fired almost from under the wheels of the Imperial carriage, with a six-barrelled revolver, but an equerry-in- ordinary, M. Raimbault, perceiving the danger, made his horse rear, and the bullet intended for the Em- peror Alexander struck the animal in the chest. Even then the pistol was misdirected and would have done no harm. Another striking instance to the same effect was presented by young Blind's at- tempt on the life of Prince Bismarck. Blind was a first. rate marksman, he had won the Wimbledon Cup, and although he discharged the six chambers of his revolver while grappling with the German Chancellor none of jthem took effect. There are many more instances of attempted political assassination admirably contrived and executed by fearless persans which have one and all failed on account of momentary emotion when the deed was being attempted.
CONVERTING THE POLICE. A very vigorous effort is being made to Christianise the police force of Manchester. A few days ago, two policemen were asked by a superior officer whether they had attended public worship on the previous Sunday when off duty, and both replied in the affirmative, mentioning the particular places. It was subsequently ascertained that this statement was untrue and on the men being questioned on the subject, they confessed to the falsehood. For this conduct they were brought before the Watch Committee and fined a small sum. This extraordinary statement is vouched for by a Manchester paper. It is suggestive of two or three per- plexing considerations. Is the superior inquisitorial officer a Churchman? and would, he recognise a Dis- senting Bethel as a "place of worship?" If he is a rigid Presbyterian, would he be entitled to fine a ritualistically-imclined policemaster attending a "House of Idolatry." It is still more perplexing to think that a number of men of business—we presume the Man- chester Watch Committee consists of men of business —should in this nineteenth century have been found to endorse the conduct of the inquisitorial officer.
THE POPE AND ST. ALEXIS. The untoward events to which Pius IX. has been compelled to submit have left their mark upon his public speeches. Though they still retain traces of geniality and worldly wisdom, there is a severity and a tone of excitement in his language which were once wholly wanting. The Italian correspondent of the Temps contradicts the Pope's recent address to a deputation from Ancona (where the Holy House of Loretto stands) in which he exorted the faithful to pray lest this sanctuary should have to leave the peninsula on account of the outrages and blasphemies of the impious, with a speech made by the Holy Father in 1850, on the fete day of St. Alexis. This saint was, socially considered, a particularly un- comfortable person. He lived under a staircase for fifteen years, unknown to his family, which he left on his wedding-day, and eventually returned as a beggar in a perfectly unrecognisable condition. His memory, is, nevertheless, much respected, and he has his annual fete and his gospel for the day, on which Pius IX. made the following kindly comment: Saint Alexis was a great saint, he became a hermit on the evening of his wedding-day. Nevertheless, he would perhaps have done well to make up his mind to this course before his marriage on account of his young wife; this, however, is only "humanly speaking." A good many commentaries on the lives and sayings of holy men would be the better for a similar admixture of the human" point of view.

The business doing has been only made. rate, and the short supplies have been amply sufficient for requirements. Very few supplies of English wheat have been on sale, but there has been a fair show of foreign. With a thin attendance of millers, the demand has been active, at about late rates. BARLEY.—Moderate supplies of barley have been on offer. Malting produce has been less sought after, and grinding parcels have been drooping in value. MALT has been quiet, at about late rates. OATS.—Full average supplies of oats have been on the stands. Sales have progressed slowly, and prices have ruled rather easier. BEANs.-The supply of beans has been limited. The inquiry has been restricted at previous quotations. PEAS have changed hands quietly on former terms. MAIZE has been dull and drooping in value. FLOUR.-The flour market has been in a quiet state, at about the prices current on Monday last.
