SATURDAY, JULY 6, 1872. LORD BUCKHURST has done good service in calling the attention of the legislature to the condition of children who are trained in various mountebank performances, to the detriment of their health, the danger of their lives, and the demoralisation of their charaters. In moving the second reading of the Acrobats' Bill, the noble lord pointed out that the employment of children in such practices, was to be. condemned on many grounds. In some cases mere infants are engaged by professional acrobats for a certain term at a specific rate of remunera- tion, and thus a too ready facility is offered to unnatural parents for getting rid of their offspring, at all events for a time, and. in many instances, altogether. The revelations made during the discussion on the Bill, no doubt startled the House, and must have shocked the Bishops very much indeed. We fear, however, that the whole truth is not before the Peers. They have received second-hand statements, and the evidence is not so full and explicit in its details as could be wished. In performing the vicarious duties which devolve upon philanthropic statesmen, several of the most distinguished members of their Lordships' House have gathered information from people manifestly interested in keeping the best side of their nefarious traffic uppermost. There are abundant proofs that the whole truth has not been told, and tha t the persons from whom Lord SHAFTESBURY and his colleagues gleaned their facts were astute enough to hide the hideous practices of their calling, beneath a simulated candour. Careful, however, as their informants were to shroud the naked truth from the inquisitive noble- men who have taken the matter up; enough ,h transpired to excite feelings of indignation against the merciless tyrants who dragoon the poor young creatures into submission to their will, distort them into supple elasticity, and compel them to risk limb and life at the. very outset of their career, in order to make a profit out of them. "He believed," saidLortfSHAFTESBURY, "there were many accidents from the acrobatic performances now indulged in, and very shocking cruelty was exercised in the training of children for some of the tricks they had to accomplish. An eye-witness told him that on going his rounds he heard shrieking and piercing cries, and on ascending to the room whence they proceeded he found seven or eight children, and a weman beating them into skins which were too small for them, but in which they were to perform as monkeys and devils." This, however, is only a partial glimpse of the horrors which an ASMODEUS, if he were to unroof many houses in the metropolis and all large towns, would reveal. Children are kidnapped and submitted to the most dreadful ordeals, and young girls, whose beauty is of a strikingly attractive kind, are induced partly by the promise of finery, but prin- cipally by threats and coercion, at which those who should be their protectors connive, to engage in the disgusting performances which degrade the age and excite the condemnation and scorn of thoughtful men. It is sad to think that a want of that refined taste which is the outcome of humane feelings, should create a demand for spectacles of so reyolting a nature. Legislation has done much to repress prize-fighting, bull-baiting, and other cog- nate sports." But there are thousands of people who take a positive delight in witnessing wretched children being-thrown about in the air by what are popularly called "tmublers," twisted into all possible Shapes tinder the eye of adult "contortionists," or compelled to walk about on stilts like the shepherds of the Landes, without the necessity which those pastoral dwellers on the flat moors of France can plead. Rope-dancing, also, has its votaries, and, the vacant-minded, heedless spectators, who gaze with pleasure upon the tottering children, forced to trust themselves twenty or thirty "feet from the ground upon a slender line of wire or hemp, care very little about the risk they run or the miseries they have endured in passing through the curri- culum necessary to ensure excellence in perform- ances which BLONDIN'S daring has made more popular than ever. However, we have the authority of Mr. CARLYLE for believing that fools form the greater part of our population, and such being. the We there is a very remote possibillity. that spectacles of the kind will cease to attract. It is imperative on the Legislature, therefore, to protect those who are unable to defend themselves from the cruelty and risk which training in such pursuits involves. It is, indeed, discreditable to English civilisation that practices which were condemned by heathen nations before Christianity was known, should be tolerated in the land. But an appeal to the religious and social instincts of those who take a delight in witnessing performances which would lose their attractiveness if danger were to be eliminated from them, would be of no avail. Parliament must take action in ] £ -l- the matter, and if it cannot presume to control adults, it inay shield the neglected, helpless children from the physical and morale-degradation peeliliar-to this vulgar calling. The legislature which has passed Acts for the protection of" factory operatives of tender age, and seeks to emancipate' p young lads from galling servitude amidst the dan- gers of the niinei may well be expected to throw its segis over the poor creatures who minister to the support of parents and unscrupulous mounte- banks, by an enforced pandering to the low tastes of brutish and flippant minds. Every one who has seen FRITH'S marvellous Derby Day," will call to mind the longing, lingering look which the juvenile acrobat casts at the tempting delicacies spread out behind him, and with what a deter- mined and doggedly sullen face the adult tumbler calls upon him to go through his share in the hate- ful performance, notwithstanding the pitying gaze of the ladies in the carriage hard by. The I picture is an eloquent plea for the class whom Lord BUCKHURST seeks to serve, and as it represents a scene to be witnessed not only upon the race-course, but at fairs,, fetos, and indeed, wherever the masses most do congregate, we trust the sympathy which the spectacle in- variably excites among the humane, may grow into a deep compassion for the unhappy children, and, aided by legislative enactments, counteract the evils which have arisen from harsh severity in the past, by rendering such practices impossible in days to come.
THE TICHBORNE CLAIMANT RECOGNISED AS ARTHUR ORTON. We have received a Jong and carefully written state- ment of the particulars of an interview which recently took place at Swansea, between Mr. Whalley, M.P., atjd Mr. B. Biggs, of 64, Bute-street, Cardiff. In this document the writer, Mr. Biggs, daclares that he re- cognised the "Claimant" as Arthur Orlou, and in- formed Mr. Whalley that he knew him, by his fea- tures, the general expression of his countenance and his hair." The writer also states that he saw Orton in Australia, who described himself to be the son of a shipping butcher, at Wapping, London." Mr. Biggs further declares that he bought a double barrelled gun of the Claimant," at the time he knew him as Arthur Ortgii, and gave £2 for it. He further alleges that he recognised Sir Roger as Orton directly he entered the public room in which the meeting was held at Swansea, and that he and two friends who were withhim remarked that the "Claimant" appeared to fix his eyes on him (Mr. Biggs) in evident recognition as soon as he came into the place. The communication which we have received details at length the interview which Mr. Biggs had with Mr. Whalley and the Claimant's" friends and the allegation that the writer of it knew the" Claimant" as Orton, when. in Australia, is re- iterated in every page. As we have no desire to pre- judge the case, we simply lay before our readers an outline of the statement, which, if it is of a reliable character, should claim the attention of the Afctoruey- General. There ought to be no difficulty in testing the truth of an allegation which, to say the least, bears upon it the impresifof verity.
THE VISIT OF THE PRINCE OF WALES TO CARDIFF. The public will learn with regret that there is now very little chance that Cardiff will be honoured by the pre- sence of the Prince and Princess of Wales on any day 'during the period that the Royal Agricultural Snow will be open in the town. With a fatuous disregard for or- dinary forms of ceremony, if not with an absolute want of consideration for his Royal Highness, whose nume- rous engagements naturally require that be should receive timely notice of any proposed invi- tation, it would appear that the corporate authorities have mismanaged affairs iu such a way as to preclude the possibility of the Prince paying a visit to Cardiff this summer. Probably had Lord Bate been consulted in time, and collerbed action determined upon, this untoward circumstance would not have occurred. We regret that the negotiations should have issued in disappointment, but, perhaps, the day will arrive whea the Corporation of Cardiff will le.;rii how to manage these things, and discover some mode of giving practi- cal expression to the loyalty and devotion which exist in this part of Wales for the person of the Sovereign and her family.
NEWPORT SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION. There was, as anticipated, a very severe contest for the election of a school board representative, ybsterday. The first issue of the state of the poll showed Colonel Lyne to be in a slight majority, which he maintained up to two o'clock, when Mr. Mitchell gradually gained, and at the close was believed to be 4 ahead of Colonel' Lyne. The Conservatives claim a somewhat, larger majority. The Liberal returns, however, were:— Lyne .893 Mitchell 9-11 ] Several cases of personation are all^g-id, and the acts are of so flagrant a nature as to lead the agents of Colonel Lyne to believe that grounds for prosecution exist. Considerable excitement was manitest-d.
LOCAL LAW CASE. THE BRECON MARKETS COMPANY V. TIIE NEATH AND BRECON RAILWAY CO-.NIPANY.-Tiie Court of Common Pleas delivered judgment yesterday (Friday) in the above case, which was a special case argued on the 4th of June last, to try the question of the liability of the railway company to pay toll on cattle and goois which they carried through the borough of Brecon without leaving the railway. 1 Mr. Justice Willes, in delivering the judgment of the o Court, said that they bad taken time for consideration, owing to the great general importance of the case. It raised the question as to whether the carriage of goods by a railway company upon their owa land should be subject to a toll, thorough or traverse. The plaintiffs were invested with the right to collect certain tolls which had been granteil to the Brecon Corporation by ancient charter, but the Court was of opinion that no such toll as was here claimed could be imposed under their Act of Parliament upon the defen- dants. The Company bad a proprietary right to use their own land, without reserving any right to the seller. This toll must be either in the nature of a toll thorough or a toll traverse. It could not be a toll thorough, as the Corporation did nothing to repair the railway, or to assist the Company in any way. It was said that it might be a toll traverse; but there could be no tell traverse except as going over the land of that grantee. It would be enough if he granted the use of it to persons paying the toll. While the grantee had the land, he was entitled to toll for the use of it; and if he parted with it ho could still retain the right to collect the toll; bat the Corporation bad parted with this laud without reserv-, ing any such right to a toll traverse, and the plaintiffs could not, therefore, claim it. The railway company, being the owners, might make what use of their land they pleased, without being liable for toll therefor. The Court was not called upon to decide the question of whether when goods were taken from the station of the defendants through the streets of the borough, toll would be payable, and, therefore, upon that point they would express no opinion but that judgment as to tells upon goods which had not left the hands of the railway company must be for the defendants. Judgment for the defendants.
ART CRITICISM Mr. Ruskin is in a very bad temper. At least he was in that unhappy frame of mind on the 23rd of Jane, when he wrote the following lines from Venice, for pub- lication in the current number of Fors Clavigera — I can't write this morning, because of the accursed whistling of the dirty steam-engine of the omnibus for, Lido, waiting at the Quay of the Ducal Palace for the dirty population of Venice, which is now neither fish nor flesh, neither noble nor fisherman-cannot afford to be rowed, nor has strength nor sense enough to row itself; but smokes and spitS: up and down the piazzetta all day, and gets itself dragged by a screaming kettle to Lido next morning, to sea-bathe itself into capacity for more tobacco." That is a pretty handsome burst for 4 gentleman whose disposition ought to be softened by the con- templation of the beautiful. Overleaf, however, Mr. Raskin begins again, thus- This miserable mob, which has not brains enough to know so much as what o'clock it is, nor sense enough so much as to go aboard a boat without being whistled for likeMogs, choking the sweet sea air with pitch-black smoke, and filling it with entirely devilish noise, which no properly bred human being could endure within a quarter of a mile of them—that so they may be suffici- ently assisted and persuaded to embark, for tLe washing of themselves, at the Palace Quay." Curiously, as we find from another note, Mr. Ruskin was still at Venice next day. Perhaps the fit of dys- pepsia had gone off.

.o-=--==-=:=: ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SWANSEA HOSPITAL. The annual med'ing of the subscribers to the 'Swan- sea Hospital was held yesterday at the Guildhall. Mr. J. Glasbrook (Mayor), occupied the chair, and amongst those present we observed: Messrs. 0. Batbr, J. Jones Jenkinsi T.'Phillips, T. Powell, J. Lewis (Herald office), M. Moxhamy James HaH, J. Jones, (solidiior), J. M. Leeder, T. Harry, A. Davies, D. Williams, j. Jones (London-house), the Rev. G. P. Evans, etc. Mr. J. W. MOJans (secretary) read the report and financial statement for the past year. The following is a summary of the report:—The com mittee have the pleasure of laying before the subscribers the fifty-fifth annual report of this most useful institu- tion. They are very happy to reiterate the statement made last year, that" thefe is no hospital in the kingdom 'which can surpass the Swansea Hospital for economy 'of administration in comparison with the benefits received, and they are proud to be able to say that under the skilful management of Miss John, the expenditure for housekeeping has been still further reduced. A reference to the balance sheet will 'verify these facts. Your committee regret, hovever. that they cannot use language of congratulation as regards their financial re- sources. From the statement of accounts it will be seen that there .is in hand a small balance of £13 12s. Sd., but per contra the following accounts are outstanding:—Balance of account due to the Swan-sea1 Gas Company, t5S lis. 9d.; ditto to the Local Board of Health for water. £.55 Os. Gd.; ditto^ to F. Bonnett and Co., for heating apparatus, £ 69 5s. (3d. corftract for painting outside the hospital £25. Another question troubles the committee, as it is troubling most people just now. They refer to the high price of coal. Mr. Charles Henry Smith, who for many years has supplied institution gratuitously, having disposed of his collieries, the supply from him ceases but your committee trust that the new proprietors will contribute a large proportion of what is needed, Mr. Evan Matthew Richards, M.P., having generously pro- mised to endeavour to meet their wishes in this respect. The increased rise iu the price of almost every article of consumption has necessarily involved an increased expenditure. Your committee therefore earnestly trtist that the public will not only continue, but increase their kind support, and urge the many new inhabitants of this most prosperous town to become subscribers, otherwise the hospital cannot be maintained in its present state of efficiency. After an appeal to ministers of religion to establish a f hospital suudnv," the report proceeded tlius- Your committee desire to express their grateful acknowledgments to the Rev. G. P. Evans, for his untiring in organising and carrying on the popular readings, which resulted in his handing over to the secretary the goodly sum of £120 18s. They would earnestly beg of him to continue his valuable aid this year also for the interests of this charity. The report concluded by thanking Mr. George Mel- ville for twenty guineas, the proceeds of a benefit at the Theatre, and a number of ladies and gentlemen who had kindly contributed to the comforts of the patients during the past year. The accounts, which had been audited by Mr. George Allen and Mr. G. B. Haynes, showed the total receipts to be £ 21(1517s. lid. (including subscriptions and donations, £1264 Sit. 9d. and collections at churches and chapels, £ 13-110s. 5d. There was a balance in hand of £13 12s. Sd, The Rev. G. P. EVANS moved the adoption of the report. Referriug to one portion of the report, which allu edto the readings given on behalf of the hospital. he said that the credit was not ail due to himself and those who acted with him, because this year they had, what they did not have before, the cordial help of the committee of the hospital. It gave him—and he was sure he coukl sptak for his colleagues as well—great pleasure to have the assistance, and he hoped it would be continued next season. Mr. J. JONES JENKINS seconded. He observed that i; must be gratifying to the committee to liud that they had manage! ihe hospital in a manner which gave satisfaction both to the subscribers and to the public. He WDS sorry to find that the finances were.in such a deplorable condition, and he hoped that the hints for raising funds, which were thrown out in the report, would be acted upon. Mr. CHARLES BATH said that Mr. Morris iu reading the report, mentioned several large sums which were now due. Amongst these was an item for water, and if he heard it rightly, the sum was .1:55. He wished to ask how long this sum had been accruing Mr. MORBIS replied that the item extended over three years or at any rate more than two yeat.s. Under the direction of the Committee, he wrote to tho Board of Health asking for a reduction in the price of water supplied to the hospital. Nearly twelve months elasped before he received a reply, and then a reduction was made, but it only was to commence from the time the reply was received. Mr. C. BATH thought the charge for water was a very heavy tax upon a charitable institution like the hospi- tal. He believed the pre ent charge could be further re- duced, if tho water could not be procured absolutely free of co-it. There were several good friends of the instita tion who had influence at tbe Board of Health, and he hoped they would do something in the matter. There could be only one objection raised, and that was that if the hospital was exempt fiom payment of the water rate, the burden would fall heavier upon the ratepayers. He believed, however, that such was the feeling iu favour of the hospital, that no abjection would bo raised by a single ratepayer (hear, hear). In reply to a question, it was stated that the receipts in 1871-2 were £lOi..I less than in the previous year. Mr. MOXHHI said he found from a circular which he had received, that it was contemplated to give up out- door relief. Mr. A. DAVIES Out-door visitation, not out-door relief. The two things are very different. Mr. MOXHAM (continuing) said be looked upon out- door visitation as one of the most valuable parts of the institution. He wished to know if the change was proposed on account of the falling off in the subscrip- tions ? The Secretaty said there were 309 indoor patients this year against 264 last year. Mr. J. LEWIS (Herald) saili that the question of out- door visitation had been before the committee, but Mr. Moxham could rest assured that no action would be taken until the subject had been fairly brought before the subscribers (hear, hear). In rep!y to Mr. ANDREW DAVIES, The Secretary stated that the French Consul paid JE3 2s. for every French patient, whether the' person was in the hospital a day or a month. In the course of conversation which followed, Mr. D. WILLIAJIS remarked that frequently persons who were in receipt of 35s. or 40s. a week came to him and asked for an order for the hospital. He always de- clined to give it, but such persons frequently procured orders from otaers. He hoped the subscribers would in future see that the applicants were poor," as de- scribed in the printed order. The motion was then carried unanimously. Mr. C. BATH proposed a votes of thanks to the com- mittee for the attention which they had given to the interests of the charity. He said there was no com- mittee in Swansea who discharged their duties more efficiently than the committee of the hospital. The subscribers saw the result in the working of the insti- tution, and they had just learnt that in addition to their ordinary duties the committee, or a portion of them, had assisted the Rev. G. P. Evans in the splendid scheme which that gentleman originated, and which resulted so beneficially for the funds of the hospital. The CHAIBMAN seconded in the name of the working classes.. He confessed that he thought the working classes ought to give larger contributions to the institu- tion. If all working men did a little, the balance ;n favour of the hospital would not be £13, but £1,300. (hear, hear.) He thought that perhaps the ministers of religion could do something to urge the claims of the hospital upon the working classes. The Rev. G. P. EVANS remarked that employers of labour, like Mr. Glasbrook and Mr. Jenkins, could do more than the ministers ot religion by inducing the workmen to contribute a penny or twopence per week to the funds of the hospital. The motion having been carried, Mr. Alderman PHILLIPS proposed a vote of thanks to the physicians and surgeons of the hospital for the important services which they had rendered to the cause of humanity during the past year. He observed that the gratuitous services of the faculty was a most important element in the suc- cess of the hospital. They might have a beautiful building, &c., but without the services of the faculty the committee would be able to do nothing. Mr. STONE seconded, and the motion was carried. Mr. Â. DAVIES (surgeon) acknowledged the vote of thanks, and proposed a similar vote to Mr. C. H. Smith for the gratuitous supply of coal to the hospital, and that Mr. Smith be entitled to the privilege of a president. He said that this motion had been passed at every annual meeting for many years, but he feared it would not be proposed again, as, unfortunately, Mr. Smith had given up the colliery. He hoped that the present owners would act as generously as their prede- cessor. Mr. J. JONES (solicitor) seconded the motion, and it was carried. On the motion of Mr. C. BATH, seconded by Mr. D. WILLIAMS, a vote of thanks was unanimously awarded to the Ministers of Religion for preaching sermons on behalf of the hospital, and for visiting the hospital. Mr Williams paid a high compliment to the members of the laity, and especially Admiral Stroud for their services in visiting the institution. On the motion of Mr. THOMAS POWELL, seconded by Mr. J. JONES (London House), a vote of thanks was awarded to the auditors. The Committee were unanimously re-electe 1, on the motion of the Rev. G. P. EVANS, seconded by Mr. C. -BATH. Mr. JAMES HAM. proposed a vote of thanks to the lady visitors, observing that he was able to bear testi- mony to the faithful manner in which the ladies at- tended the hospital. Mr. T. HARRY seconded, and the motion was carried. On the motion of Mr. MOXHAM, seconded by Mr. J. JONES (solictor), it was resolvtd that a summary of the proceedings at this meeting be advertised in the local papers. Mr. C. BATH said he had a very agreeable duty to perform, namely—to move a vote of thanks to the Mayor for presiding. Mr. Glasbrook was present not only in the capacity of mayor of the borongh, but also as a friend of the institution and a well wisher of all chairitable institutions. Since Mr. G1 is brook had been in office he had shown a disposition to forward every good work, as far as it lay in his power. The motion was c uried unanimously, and the meet- ing terminated. ';0.

The question t > dealt with was" Ought transportation to be admitted ( y a punishment; and, if so, what ought to be its nature' V He reviewed' at length the laws of transport tion in France, Italy, and England, and stated that t • was partly opposed to the laws of France, entirely disai < proved of tho Italian system, and considered the modet punishment as lately in force in England the most pract cal and sensible. He objected to the French rule of com pelling convicts to remain in a colony after their time ha expired, instead of allowing them to return to their com try and taking their place in society. In conclusion, h contended that the punishment of transportation wit k forced labour to the colonies was just and useful, and convenient mode of punishment for criminals who merits the punishment of porpetual imprisonment, and for me •• who were setenced to imprisonment for a term of 15 or i years. Hastings said that we only adopted the punishmen i of transportation when our prison system was a bad ant and that the moment we abolished it, our prison clisciplin was improved. Count Vladimero, of Russia, said this question wa ( closely connected with that of colonization, and with th i condition of the dangerous classes in the country. AVhit f it might be inexpedient for such countries as Holland Belgium, and even Germany, to adopt this system, h. thought, that in Russia it could be carried out by transporta tion to such a country as Siberia. i M. Pols. of Holland, Count Sollohub, of Russia, 'am ■ General Annenkoff, of Russia, continued the discussion. Colonel Radcliffe, governor of the gaol at Birmingham I said t-liat at our late penal settlements the treatment o t the prisoners was not such as was likely to improve thet f habits of industry, or to fit them for the honest lif' which they 11.11 desired they should lead after their tim. ? had expired. He thought the Government should taki in-to consideration the question of whether persons whe 4 were sentenced to long terms of imprisonment should not- I be taught some trade. Most of these people had n". '"f special calling, and it was very difficult to find suitabl< employment for them whon they regained their freedom. Count do Foresta, briefly replied, and after a few wordJ from the Chairman, the subject was cropped. UJFOmI PUNISHMENTS. Count Solloliub, (Russia) introduced the neit subject; Ought the punishment of privation of liberty (imprison' ment i.» ^tin re) to be uniform in nature, and differing anI, in length Or ought several kinds, differing it denomination and discipline, to be admitted ? 111 the lattei case, what kinds are to be admitted ? The count said a prison was a hospital for the cure of moral disorders, and prisoners. like the patients at other hospitals, went there to get cured of their moral disease. A prisoi. should be re- garded as a stepping-stone for legaining society. He did n not think that sufficient attention was paid to the actual cireuQistanees of each criminal. He also thought that ] sufficient care was not taken to remove tho taint of crimi- nality from persons who were proved to be innocent, and that both bdore and after trial thoy should be placed in ontiivly different institutions. The only way to prevent moral contamination was by separation. The Count do Foresta dealt with the inequality ot sentences, awl eomplRined that minor crimes rt;eeived heavy sentences nnl11.'ice versa. He was afraid that no moral barometer had boen discovered by which wo could guage a crime with any degree oÎ certainty. The subject was handed over to the Count do Forest to repolt upon. THE KIXD OF IMPRISONMENT. The Count de Foresta then discussed—If a kind of im- prisonment consisting only in a mere privation of liberty without obligation to work and without contact with other kinds of prisoners, uught to be admitted for special crimes not implying any great perversity. Ho thought tliat crimes of moral turpitude should be distinguished from those committed in the heat of pas';ion. He thought in the latter class the deprivation of liberty without hard labour would be sufficient, and that young porsons who were not habitual offenders should only be deprived of their liberty, and that their punishment should be some- thing short of hard labour. There should be separate pri- sons for caeh clas 0;' offenders. After 11 few wop-is from I. Van (le Hon. J. 11. Chandeer, United States, said that the system advocated by Count de Foresta was carried out in East Pennsylvania with great success. The man who com- mitted a crime in the heat of passion, and to which he watt perhaps provoked by another, was separated from the criminal man, and simply deprived of his liberty. If a. man stole, from the habitual exercise of a bad habit, he was deprived of his liberty and sentenced to hard laQour but when a man was charged with a mere violation of the law in the heat of passion, then he was simply shut up, being kept apart from other prisoners. He was allowd to dress in his ordinary clothes and to partake of different food. Ha could see his friends, and write to the newspapers-C. i laugh)—if he liked, but he had no work to dQ, and soon began to sigh for labour. 4 After a, few words from Dr. Moot, Dr. Charquardsen, and Mr. Ancrun, of Gloucester, the discussion was closed. LABOUR WITHOUT IMPRISONilKJTT. Count do Foresta next dealt with the question whether it was possible to replaco short imprisonment allel the nOD- nayment of fines by forced labour without privation of liberty, and argued that men should labour during t day within a gaol, they having a certain amount of work given theni to do, in lieu of ft fire. By adopting this plan, there would not be a disruption of family ties, which. was the present fault of our system. Mr. William Tallack supported th.6 proposition; and, after a few words from Mr. Stevens, Sir John Bowring thought the spirit of organisation ought to be introduced more extensively- in our gaols, and individual character studied. He understood that a largo portion of the army of Belgium was clothed by materials made in gaols, and he saw no reason why men who were sentenced to a term of imprisonment should not taught the trade of a shoemaker or tailor. The discussion WHS Continued by Mr. Collins, J.P., Count Sollohub, Baron Mackay, Mr. Bremmer, J.P., and Mr. Charley, M.P., when it was closed. this part of the proceedings an adjournment took 1 lace. On the re assembling of the members, Mr. Tallack said the cellular system was all very well; hut he considered the systems of Belgium, Holland, and Pennsylvania much better. Capt. Ducade then explained the system adopted in English prisons. Mr. Neville came from the Western part of the State of Pensylvannia, and objected to the solitary system as calculated to promote insanity. He agreed to the eclectic or combined system. The system in the West was different to that carried out in Eastern Pensylvania. Dr. Frey, Austria, was in favour of the combined system and conditional discharge. Dr. Smith, of Ohio, explained the system as carried out in his State, and dwelt on the beneficial effects of the Sabbath instruction inculcated, and the system of organi- zation after the prisoners leave the prison. Sir W. Crofton defended the Lusk prison as a bright specimen of the system. The Chairman then arrested the discussion, and Mr. T. L. Barwick Baker just introduced his Rubjcct-" 18 the supervision of discharged prisoners rea- sonable? If so, what are the most efficient means of accomplishing it ?" and the Congress adjourned.
THE LONDON PRESS ON THE WJSLSH CHOIR. The most imlortant incident in the day, says the Daily News, was th J rplecdid siDging of the South Wales Choral Ui-ion; the mem era of which number some 500 voices. These choristers coast t almost entirely of miners and th, ir wives and daughters; and their admirable performances were much spoken of a few years since, in reference to the Eisteddfod held at Chester. This choir was the only representative of class 1 in yesterday's proceedings, and, therefore, gained the Challenge prize unopposed. It is questionable, however, whether any body of choristers, professionable or amateur, would have displayed better qualities, more thorough training or greater earnestness.than were mani- fested in the pieces performed. These welthe con- cluding chorus, In tears of grief," from Bach's St. Matthew," Passion music (taken much too slow bYlthe conductor of the choir;; Then round about the starry throne," from Handel's r' Samson;" The night is departing," from Mendelsshon's, Lobgesang;" the Welsh air, The March of the Men of Harlech and Mr. Brinley Richards's God Bless the Prince of Wales," in Welsh—the latter in answer to enthusiastic calls from some of the audience. In every instance the singing was of a kind rarely heard from large bodies of ohoristers.. The tone in each division of the voices was rich and full, never coarse— the intonation generallyaccmate-excepting in the case of Mendelssohn's chorus, in which the singers became gradually much too sharp, contrary to the usaal ten- dency of chorus singers. This, ho vever, was easily ac- counted for. In order to throw into prominence the vocal performances, only a small orchestra had been provided, and the volume of sound produced by the large number of choristers was so great as frequently to render the band inaudible to the singers. The chorus, however, was recommenced the orchestra played with mere force, and the result was throughout excellent. The gradations of tone were admirably observed—neither ex- treme of piano and forte having been exaggerated. This praise applies generally, but in An especial degree to the sopranos. The fresh and pure quality of these voices; their power of sustaining a high note without faltering; their precision of attack and refinement of style and phrasing were alike excellent, and the sing- ing of the choir produced a very marked impression. When such results as these-sufficient to content the ,mostfastidiom critic-ean follow the cultivationof choral siugiug among the artizan class, it is highly desirable that its pursuit should be promoted in every posaible direction as one of the least expensive, as Well as one of the most accessible and refining of human enjoyments.
