THE PROPOSED COLLEGE FOR NORTH WALES. SIR,-As one of the delegates from Wrexham to the meeting held at Chester, please allow me to record my protest, which I expressed by my vote at the agaiust the illusion of /'bsrjs- twyth from the consideration of the committee ap- point ei t determine the aim of the proposed col- lege for North W.'Ics. I freely confess that I am not quite so enthusiastic an advocate 01 a college for as some of my friends. I am fully co..vibced that the yor,tll of Wales are quite capabin oi holding their own, and that they would toe all the better for a little healthy jivalry with the youth of England; and I am tot quite sure that we, Welshmen, would be any great loseis if we were to Icse a little oi the dannishness und self-consciousness almost its parable from our isolation. But it is very evident that, the majority of my countrymen, backed by tae oistinguished committee which fat on the subject eighteen months ago, are determined to have a coilege for North Wdes, and I most willingly and cheerfully submit myself to their superior judgment. I, however, see no reasor, but the contrary, Aberystwyth could not easily be made to answer all practical pmpoes -for there we have some- thing already more than the nucleus of all that we iequire. There we have the machinery o: colleg- iate education already in full cpcraticn. There we have buildings erected at an cri/>ine.l cost of X80,000, and to which a sum of JE52,000 since expended on the college must be aided, which could be adapted for purely coileg ate purposes at a trifling expense. There we have a locality as healthy and picturesque as could well be found iu any pa't of the United Kingdom. And the place, it is well known, is accessible by rail from any part of Ncrth Wales at a cost of only a fe'¡¡ shil- lings Technically and geographically, Abeiys- twith is not in North Wales, but it must not be forgotten that the recommendation of the Depart- mental Committee is not a college in but for North Wales and I repeat I see no reason why the existing college at Aberystwyth should not be adapted, as it easily could, to meet all the re- quirements of the six counties of North Wales.—I am, &c., Wrexham Vicarage.
