ABERYSTWITH. THE CONCEALMENT OF BIRTH CAEE.-All efforts on the part of the police to find the body of the child of which Ann Millar is supposed to have been confined, have been up to now (Wednesday afternoon) unavailing. The unfortunate woman was brought before the Mayor (Mr. Thomas Jonesjaiid remanded until Saturday. IMPROVEMENT (COMMISSIONERS.—The monthly meeting of this body was held on Tuesday. Mr. David Roberts presided, and there was a full attendance of commissioners. The usual accounts having been passed, the Board pro- ceeded to discuss tenders for a fire escape, which had been sent in. The firms tendering were Messrs. Shand, Mason and Co., and Messrs. Merrvwesther and Sons, buth of London, and their prices were X-76 and £66 15s. respec- tively. After, considerable discussion, it was resolved to purchase an escape from the latter firm. A general dis- trict rate of Is. in the pound was then signed, it being understood that a supplementary rate for the property taken into the borough under-the provisions of the new Improvement Act, which has received the royal assent, will be made as soon as the property in question is valued. Mr- G. H. Thomas, schoolmaster, of Peny- parkau, a suburb of Aberystwith, called the attention of the commissioners to the sanitary condition of the locality. He said that although the inhabitants of Pen- yparkau paid rates, they were without water, lamps, and drainage, and it was time that an alteration took place. Over 200 children attended his school daily, anü not a drop of water had they to drink, but what came from the river. The Clerk said the inhabitants of Penyparkau were only charged at the rate of one-fourth of the improvement rate, and although. there could be no doubt that they ought to have some improvement, yet if they had the place supplied with water, light and drained, the}' must not only pay the full improvement rate, but water rent likewise. Mr. Thomas said he should be glad to pay water rent if supplied with water. Upon this a long discussion ensued, and ultimately a resolution was passed that the scavengers should visit Pehyparkau as well as other parts of the town. It was next decided that none but poor persons should be excused payment of water rate. The commissioners wound up the proceedings of the day by purchasing a draught horse for S-M. SUSPECTED INFANTICIDE.—A young woman, a widow named Ann Millar, is in custody on a charge of conceal- ing the birth of a child. The accused has been in service in Aberystwith for a considerable period, but about two months ago she was sent to Cardigan gaol. for robbing Mrs. Scott, of the Marine-terrace, with whom she had lived as a cook. When her term of imprisonment-ex- pired Millar returned to Aberystwith and took lodgings in the house of Mrs. Turner, north-parade, where, there is every repjon to lwlive, she was confined, thorigh there are no trades of a child to be found. The prisoner's state- ment is that she had miscarried. She was brought before th? magistrates "n •Tti?*df.y 2.f:erW1Qn. subsequent to the ■ of our p £ rcti.
