A. Darbishire, Mr O. J. Hoyd Evans (master of the South Carnarvon Har Jjers), Mr R. Greaves, Captain Preston, Mr Wil- liams, Mr Hamer, Mr Gubbins, Mr Parry (Wem), Oliver, and other members of trie hunt. Through some unexplained reason, the deer was not brought to the meet, and the harriers had t3 be confined to their legitimate sport. Although no hares were killed, some splendid runs weie enjoyed, "puss" in one instance giving a run from Gian- gWna to Prysgol, thence to Glan rafon, up to the left to the late Mr Holman's seat, and after wind Wig round towards Prysgol, turning to the top ot Waenfawr, and successfully obtaining shelter in the recesses of Mr Assheton-Smith's grouse moor. With respect to Thursday's racing, it is worth Noticing that the cups were handed over, cheques given in settlement of the race3 the same night. HARBOUR TRUST.—The ordinary monthly meet- ing was held on Tuesday, Sir Llewelyn Turner in the chair. From the abstract of accounts pre- sented by the clerk (Mr Jackson), it appeared that the amount received in harbour dues :for half- year ending December 31 was JE912 as comparad with X,939 8s 2d in the corresponding period of the previous year. During January the following aums were received:—Imports JE23, exports £49, tonnage JB29, making a total since July of £1112, as against S1114 for the corresponding period of 1882.3. A letter was read from the Admiralty asking that a portion of ground at the back of the new coastguard btation should be let to them in order that it might be enclosed. The trust decided to grant a portion of the ground required at an annual rental of zC2. Mr Darbishire read a letter, which he had addressed to the trust, on the subject of the railway rates for the conveyance of slates from Nantlle to the Carnarvon Quay, together with some correspondence between himselt and Mr Henbhaw, of ttie London and North Western Railway Company, on the matter. It appeared that at present an extra charge of 6i per ton was made by the railway company on slates sent to the quay. Mr Darbishire said that these rates affected the quarry owners as well as the trust, and he thought it was their duty to move in the matter. The chairman said that if the railway company in any way gave preference to the rail over the quay they would be acting illegally. The matter was eventually referred to a committee. THE NORTH WALES COLLEGE.-A statement of the claims of the town of Carnarvon, for the above college has been drawn out and printed. At- tached to it are the names of Mr G. R. P.ees (mayor), and Mr R. Newton, hon. secretary. The statement points out the various advantages of Carnarvon, namely, (1) the increasing population of the town and of the poor law union, (2) free site offered for the college, (3) Carnarvon named in the Departmental Reports, (4) the nu- merous and efficient schools in the district, (5) central situation of the town and facilities of access, (6) lodging accommodation in the town, (7) salubrity of the town, (8) the means of recrea- tion, (9), its commercial importance, (10) Carnar- von being an ancient and historic town. It ap- pears that the population within a radius of ten MUOS from Caruarvon is 78,366, or about one- sixth of North Wales, and if a radius of 25 miles be taken, the population would be about 210,000, 01 nearly half that of North Wales. REPORT OF THE RECENT EXAMINATIONS AT THE BOARD SCHOOLS.—At a meeting of the school board, held on Monday night, the report of the master of the boja' school (Mr Jones) was read,8tating that the annual examination had just taken place. *13 boys were examined, of which 95 par cent, Passed in reading, 95 in arithmetic, and 89 in J^fitifigj making an average of 93 per cent. in all.

Dr Kirk: Tnat was not saying that they are going to bo published.—Mr Thomas Williams seconded a pro- posal of Dr Kirk, that the accounts I should be published, as directed by tne Act of Parliament.—Mr De Winton said he that would have no objection himself, but he believed it would prove no advantage to the town.-Dr Kirk What disadvantage w »uld it be. It would be well for them to show to the towns- people that they conducted their affairs honestly. jjr Bugbird said that he never heard any Oloe but Dr Kirk intimating that the gus committee did not act honesty.—Mr De Wintcu said there were sufficient reasons why the rfpoi-ts of the gp. committee were not published.—D- Kirk: What are they then ? I insist upon an answer.—Mr At. T. Morris asked if there were any penalties for not complying with the Act of Parliament in tt/is matter.—Dr Kirk said they were liable to a daily fine of 40s.—Mr De Winton said the spirit of the act did not imply a fine, and besides, the time prescribed by the act had not come, so that ^ny discussion was premature. The aot required that the report should be published by March, and thus the time had not arrived to discuss the question.-The mayor explained that there were several reasons why the reports should not be published, one being that income tar w_ uld have to be paid on five quarters. The matter then ^Tlu^Eighway Committee.—Mr T. Bugbird sub- mitted the report of this committee, at a meeting of which, held on the 2nd inst., the surveyor had been directed to ask the town clerk if the owners of property in North-road could be compelled to make a foot path in front of their properties. If not to see the owners and ask if they would con- tribute towards the cost. It was also oraered that an estimate of the cost of repairiag the foot- path at South-road, Llanbeblig-road, and oppo. sib the National Schools, be prepared by the next meeting.—It was further recommended that the application of the surveyor for the following ma- terials for repairs in Chapel street be ordered: Six wheelbarrows, and about 30 tons of stone from a quarry at 'Sgubor Wen. It was also recom- mended that 60 tons of macaiam be ordered for repairing the main roads.—The report of the committee was adopted, the town cle'k being re- quested to ascertain the liability of the owners of property in North-road in the case of the foot PftS; Park Committee—The mayor read the minutes of this committee, at a meeting of which, held on January 5th, it was resolved, on the motion of Mr J. P. de Winton, seconded by Dr Kirk, that the mayor be asked to see Captain Stewart with a view to settle the boundary overSPenbiyn.mawr and to reportfto the next committee, in order that the deeds of exchange may be prepared. -On the motion of Mr O. Thomas, seconded.by Mr Bugbird, Mr R. J. Davids was directed to prepare a plan of the Park Lodge. It was recommended that the plan of the Morfa be paid for at the next meeting of the coun- cil. On the motion of Mr J. P. de Winton, seconded by Mr R. R. Williams, it was resolved that the shed and rope work on the lower park, lately occupied by Mrs Rowlands, be removed and the timber placed on the park, and that she be informed thereof. It was resolved, on the motion of Mr R. R. Williams, seconded by Dr Kirk, that a ti ne-keeper be^advert zed for.—Mr R. J. Davids applied that a sub committee be appointed in order to visit the park, and confer with him on the grounds.—The following were appointed:—The Mayor, Mr Bugbird, and Dr Kirk. It was further resolved, on the motion of Mr O. Thomas, seconded by Mr Bugbird that Mr Davids be authorized to employ a man to make gate-posts from an oak- tree in the Lower Park. At the same committee, held on the 15th ult., the mayor in the chair, it was resolved that the appointment of the time- keaper and working foreman, for which office there were 17 applications, be left in the hands of Mr R. J. Davids.—It was recommended at a committee held on the 5th inst., the mayor ia the chair, that the town clerk be instructed to take steps to carry out tie exchange of boundary with Mr Assheton- Smith.—The report was adopted. Re appointment of Borough Officials.— Mr M. T. Morris proposed the re-appointment of Mr R. LI. Jones and the other town officials. The motion WBS carried. The Royal College oj Music.-A letter was read from the secretary of the above college, requesting the council to appoint three efficient professional men as examiners in the local examination of the college.—Messrs W. JarrettRoberts, H. Roberts, and John WilliamsJ (Castle-square) were nomin- ated. The Council and the Billetting of the Militia A letter was read from the War Oftice in reference to a memorial sent by the council pointing out the loss it would be to poor householders if the militia were camped out instead of being billetted. The office pointed out that national exigencies must not ba sacrificed to local opinion.—Mr Hug bird A very polite way of telling us to mind our own business.—Mr O. Thomas said that the regiment was to be billetted as usual this training. The Annual Registration of .vaterl.-The borough seal was affixed to a bill of £ 6:5 13s for the ex- penses of the revision of voters, the amount being divisible amongst the contributory boroughs. The Sanitary Committee.—Dr J. Williams sub- mitted the report of this committee, in which it was recommended that the medical officer should be requested to inspect the;pig slaughter-houses in Pool-hill. Several nuisances wera also requested to be abated.-The report was adopted. The Finances of the Corporation-In accordance with a notice of motion, Dr. Kirk proposed that all the money paid by the corporation should be under te notice and control of the finance committee. Before saying anything as to the resolution, he wished to correct one statement which had been made at the previous meeting, namely, that JS56 had been spent in planting trees, and not £20. At the previous meeting of the council he had asked why had so much money been spent on plantation while they had promised that the amount would not be allowed to exceed some £ 10 or il2. The worthy mayor asked at the time if anyone could explain, and Mr Bugbird complained that his re- marks were misrepresentations. He (Dr Kirk) found there were several resolutions and standiug orders which were not complied with, and he thought it was no use at all to pass such resolu- tions unless they were carried out. He had himself moved some resolutions, and it was said by some parties, with regard to one standing order which had been proposed by him,—" We agreed to let you have that resolution passed in order taat the meeting might go on." He should like to know who were those autocratic we," as it were. He could not understand what was the use of wasting time, and discuss the desirability of patting a resolution on the books if it were only for the purpose of pleasing him. It was not right to pass any resolution for the purpose of satisfying any individual, and he strongly objected to such a thing. He would rather propose that every reso- lution on the books should be rescinded than that they should bo passed with no better object than pleasing individuals. With those remarks he would propose his resolution, viz., That all ac- counts paid by the corporation should be handed to the finance committee, and be under the con- trol of that committee. He had not decided upon moving this resolution without a great deal of deaberation. He thought the whole of th e finan- ces of the corporation should be in the hands of the finance committee. If this plan was alopted, he had no doubt that the town would be far bett( r off at the end of the year, or at the end of six mouths/and could better make an estimat e as to the iuture twelve or six months. At present, in making an estimate for a current period, they did llet seeui to have allY idea of the pi'obdUiC expense. The gas committee's accounts were hot under the coucrol of the finance committee, and he, for one, did u< t know how this branch of the corporation was conducted. He believed tha fiuauce commit- tee ought to h.we something to do with the finan- ces ot this bianch, as well as the other branches. This was the most important source of the cor- poration revenue, and should certainly be under the control of.the finance committee. Mr De Win- ton held said that they could not put the accounts of the gas committee under the control of the finance committee, but he (Dr Kirk) could not see why they could not. He niHiutaine^ that r finance co.oin.-ittee co^M h".ve, and ouvht t h ve, c<jf:?oi over gas accounts like other corporate accounts; 1 and in order to prove that assertion he had only ti r efer them to the act of Parliament on the point Vict. 51 and 52, which provided that gas commit' Vict. 51 and 52, which provided that gas commit tees should be subject to the control of the cor. porations, or a committee of some seven or eighi I corporate members, who mi6ht from time to tim< be appointed by the corporations. He thought i1 would be a breach of the act mentioned to leave I the gas committe condud its finances as before. The finance committee had control over the fi- nances of all the other committees, and why not the gas committee. If his (the speaker s) motion was acrrepd upon, more interest would be taken by the members of the different committees in the conduct of their own finances, in order that their respective accounts might compare favourably cue with another. He was certain if they gave his resolution a trial for some time, they would not want to fall back from it. It had been passed already that no goods should be ordered, or ac counts rendered, by the officials of the corporation without an order signed by a member of tti ■ com- mittee having control over the branch which the goods are ordere i for but this order book was of no use, as far as the gas committee was concerned, and would not be so until the accounts of that committee were put under the control of the finance committee. He would propose that all U e committees— sub and otherwise—should submit their monthly accounts of receipts and expen- diture to the finance commiitee.—The Mayor There is no commttee which receives money. Besides, there are two or three different resolutions proposed by you, Dr Kirk. Had you not better put them before the meeting one by one?—Dr Kiik Well, then I will propose that the finance committee have control over the gas comaiittee —Mr J. O. Jones seconded the resolution.—Mr De W'nton said that, although he was not a lawyer, he be lieved Dr Kirk was wrong, and contended that the motion was contrary to the act of Parliament. The financial part of the gas undertaking really formed part of the management, who having ordered the goods were better able to pass their own bills than refer them to the finance committee. The gas committee were composed of men who were financiers and engineers (laughter), and every account paid was monthly submitted to the whole council, who were thus practically the gas com- mittee.—Mr Bugbird defeaded the action of the park committee who had been attacked by Dr Kirk f r spending money on trees. It had been reprf seuted that jE50 had been so expended, but the amount was less than £10, and the committee had taken the best of the three tenders laid before them.—Mr Thos. Williams said he was prepared to support Dr Kirk's motion. They did not want to have the management of the gas in their own hands, but they wished simply to have the gas accounts submitted, like all the other corporation accounts to the finance committee. He could not see what objection the gas committee could have to this. — Mr Richard Thomas moved an amendment, to the effect that matters should be left as before, and Rot be interfered with.—Mr R. R. Williams seconded the amendment.—Mr Lewis Lewis thought the finance committee could manage their finances better than anybody else.-Dr Williams expressed an opinion favouring Dr Kirk's resolution.—Mr De Winton said that the gas committee had power to pay off at once any money due by them, such as coal bills, for instance. There were many bills which required to be paid off immediately, and could not be allowed to remain due until a com- mittee might sit to pass the payment of same. He thought also that it would be an absurd thing to require of those who are members of both the gas and finance committee to go over the same things twice.—The Mayor thought if the council had no confidence in the present gas committee they had better appoint seven or ei.,ht new members in whom they had confidence.—Dr Kirk: It is not a question of confidence.—Mr W. P. Williams (indignantly) Of course it is. The matter appears to me perfectly useless. We have perfect confid- ence ia the gas committee, and if we do this it will tend to show that we have no confidence in them (voices "No, no n). It appeared to him quite unnecessary to make such a change.—Mr J. 0. Jones It is only asked that the gas committee should be put on the same footing as the other committees. It is not a matter of confidence or no confidence.-In replying to the various speakers, Dr Kirk 'said he quite agreed with Mr Jones that the question was not one of conndenee for why should they raise the question of confid- ence with this committee more than the other committees who had already to submit their accounts to the finance committee. If everything was so well done as represented, why, it would only be human nature for them to show what good work they had done. He believed if they had no confidence in any committee, it was the finance committee. That committee could net be trusted with the finances of the gas committee, and therefore they should not raise the question of confidence or no confidence. What was the definition of a finance committee ? It was that they should have the ruling of the whole finances of the corporation. This committee were entitled to have the whole accounts of the corporation laid before them, and he held that by the adoption of his resolution they would avoid a gre'lt deal of the inconvenience hitherto e xperi- enced in the council.—The matter was then put before the meeting, when eleven "voted fcr the amendment and seven for the original motion. Corporation Work and Contracts.—The question of the JE10 resolution, which rendered it necessary that all orders above JEK) should be contracted for, was discussed at some length, and it was decided that iu future all work required to be done, and all goods or materials required by the cor- poration, shall be advertized on boards outside the Guild Hall, complainants being made that some of the tradesmen had been neglected by the officials not ceiieitiiig tenders from them for work required by the corporation. The Morfa Committee and 'heir Powers.—Mr Thomas Williams proposed that a standing order giving this committee power to carry out the alterations at the Morfa without the approval of the council, should be rescinded, and that the committee should bj made subject to the same rules as the other committees of the council. The re- solution formerly ran thus: That the Morfa committee be empowered to carry out the altera- tions at the Morfa as per architect's plans." The words "subject to the approval of the council" were ordered ta be added to the old resolution. The Ccumil's Fitte Art" Collection.—Mr J. C. Rowlands, Castle square, wrote stating that he had examined the pictures belonging to the cor- poration, as requested. The portrait of the Rev H. Jones, which is at present hung up along with that of Sir Llewelyn Turner, in the ball-room of the Sportsman Hotel, required to be lined. There was another little fault also with this.portrait, vis., the right eye was damaged, which could not be done right without extra painting (laughter). Sir Lie1 elyn's portrait was also very bad (renewed laughter): piec s of the frame having been torn away. It was decided to have the portraits re- paired, and hung up in the Guild HaR.

PIGEON- SEOOTING MATCH.—On Friday last a prize shooting match was held in a field near the railway station, which had been kindly lent for the occasion by Mr James Wells, George Hotel. A fair number of entries were secured. Shooting commenced shortly after noon, under most un- favourable circumstances as regarded the weather, there being a continual downpour of rain from early morning until late in the afternoon. The first prize was won by Mr Smythe, who killed seven birds in succession, Mr John Jones, Maelog Lake Hotel, taking the second prize with six birds, and Mr Jeremiah Jones, Llanfachraeth, the third prize with five birds. Mr R. Stewart -acted as referee, to the satisfaction of all parties. In the evening a numeroue party sat down to dinner at the George Hotel, the menu reflecting great credit upon Mr Wells as a caterer. THE TOWN HALL CO. (LIMITED).—The annual general meeting of this company was held on Monday last, when the balance sheet was read by the chairman, Mr Thomas Owen, R N., and adopted. A dividend of 3 per eent was declared. RAILWAY SUEEPING CARRIAGES. —Sleeping car- riages, which have been for some time in use on other trunk lines in Great Britain, have at length been introduced on to the London and N rth Western main line between London and Holy bead, a carriage of this kind having been for the first time attached to the Irish mail from Euston to Hal, head on Monday night last. The carriages, which are 42 feet in length and about 15 inches wider than an ordinary railway carriage are di- vided into four state-rooms (three for gentlemen and one for ladies), containing four berths each, conductor's room, lavatories, &c. A narrow cor- ridor runs alongside the rooms appropriated to gentlemen giving independent access to each, the ladies' room being the whole width of the carriage. The whole is well lighted by gas, which is sup- plied from tanks under the flooring of the carriage, and is heated by a stove which is situated in the conductor's apartment. THE DEEP-WATER QUAY AT SALT ISLAND.-In re- ply to an inquiry madj by Mr Richard Hughes, Stanley-crescent, in reference to the difference which has arisen between the L. & N. W. Com- pany and the Board of Trade on this subject, Mr Morgan Lloyd, Q.C., M.P., states that in pro- posing their scheme the company made a request that the board should deepen the water near their proposed quays, but the board declined to incur any expense, and intimated that the company should provide the money for all the work which it might be necessary to gQ, I 1 LOOAL BOARD.-The ordinary monthly meeting was h Id on the 1st inst., Mr W. P. Elliott Ipre- siding. There was also present Messrs Richard Hughes, Thomas Roberts, Joseph Williams, William Riva, Thomas F. Evans, W. D. Jones, Dr R. Williams, and Mr J. Lloyd Griffith (clerk). Expenditure.—The finance committee reported that the outlay in wages, carting, and tradesmen's accounts for the past month amounted to JESO 10s, and cheques were drawn to that amount. Mount-pleasant Chapel.—Plans were again sub- mitted by the committee. The chairman pointed out that the plans had only been sent in that morning, and drew attention to the fact that the adjoining buildings and the width of the roads were not properly shown. The plans were then ordered to lie on the table for a month. The End of the Water Dispute.—The clerk re- ported that he had not received any reply to the report on this subject, which he had been instruc- ted to forward to the Local Government Board. It was now resolved that he should inform that board: That as, by the second analysis, it has been ascertained that the water is now in good condition, the board does not wish that anything further snaIl be done in the matter." The Subsidence at Pelham Quay.-The surveyor re- ported that he had examined the spot referred to by Admiral Mackenzie, and had found the subsi- dence of such a trivial character that one small load of gravel was all that he considered it re- quired, and that he had put it down. Me Deep Water Quay at Salt Island. — The clerk read letters from Mr Richard Davies, M.P., and Mr Morgan Lloyd, Q.C., M.P., in which they informed the board that they had presented the copies of memorials to the Board of Trade in support of the ,proposed scheme of the London and North Western Company to erect a deep water quay at Salt Island, with =a view to opening a trade be- tween this port and parts in North America. The latter gentleman also stated that 'the board were willing to afford the company every facility for the earring out ■ of i&eir proposed scheme, but would not lay out any money. Mr Cecil Trevor, assist- ant seeretary to the board, in acknow- ledging the -receipt of the memorial which had been forwarded direct by the board, stated that the condition which had caused the scheme to fall through bad not been imposed on the railway company by the Board of Trade, but exactly the reverse, and was of 'the opinion the scheme would not be proceeded with.

THE POLITICAL JUBILEE OF SIR HARRY VERNEY, BART. Last week a grand banquet was held at Buck- ingham t) celebrate the political iubilee of Sir Harr Verney, M.P. for Buckingham, father of Captain Verney, R.N., Rhianva, Anglesey. It apuears that Sir Harry Verney in 1819 went to Stuttgart, in Germany, in the DIPLOM«+I^ Service- 1819—1830, served in the Army in the following Regiments: 31st Foot, 72nd Foot, 52ad Light Infantry, Grenadier Guards; 1832—1841 £ P for Buckingham; 1847—1852, M.P. for 'Bedford- 1857-1874 and 1880-1883, M.P. for BNCKINGHAM: J anng the last nfty years he gave his loyal support to the following Liberal measures:— Repeal of the Corporation and Test Acts, Catholic Emancipation, the Reform Act of 1832, Abol't'oa ot Slaverv, Amendment of the Poor Laws, REFORM of Municipal Corporations, the Penny. )oste.ge System, Repeal of the Corn Liws, Bepcal of the Navigation Laws, Abolition of the Compulsory Stamp on Newspapers, Paper Duty Repeal Act, Abolition of Compulsory 'hurch Rates, Disestab- lishment of the Irish Church, Elementary Education Act, 1870, the Irish Lani Act, 1870, Abolition of Religious Tests in Universities, Abortion of Purchase in the Armv,Balht Act,1872, Irish Land Act, 1881. His first recorded speech ia Parliament is characteristic. On MRU.;h 4th, 1833, in supporting a petition from Midhurst for the Better Observance of the Sabbath, he grounded that support on two principles, which may be traced at every subsequent poi .t of his career as the guiding motives of bis public life-a strong se^se of the need of public virtue and national conscience, and a deep sympathy with those who wPrk hard for daily bread and need a weekly rest. -On June 3, he spoke in favour of Temperence, considering hat while you conld not make men sober by Act of Parliament, public morality might be much assisted by judicious leg's1 at ton in this direction.—On May 16, 1839, speaking cn the Condition of Prisons, he gave his support to what; is known as the separate cell' system, on the ground thrvt the criminal cor uption of the less by the more guilty prisoners would thus be more effectively prevented —On June 1«, 1839, IN supporting Lord John Russell's proposed grant of £ 30.089 for purposes of National Education and the establishment of a Committee of Privy Council on Education (the body in whose hands the man- agement of the whole system of public instruction has ever since remained), Sir Harry Verney argued strongly against exclusive or sectarian, schools.He demanded perfect toleration for Dissenters.Although no one bad a higher re- gard than he had for the work of the clergy of the Church of England, he did not think that it was wise that the exclusive management of the national schools of the country should be in the hands of the clergy.'—On August 12, he argued that the best form of national security rested OIL a better am higher state of national education: which produced a retort from Mr Hume, the great Democratic leader, that what the people demanded was -not more education, but more Democratic legislation. During the r ext few e-g he was fouiMl giving a continuous and consistent support to AA the great measures of philanthropic reform a,, d practical benevoience, with which the name •of Lord Shaftesbury will always >>e associated A<* for example, the Factory Acts, RAGGED School? MEDIC*1 «elief of the Poor, Juvenile^Emigntion' RN? ,MARCH' 184P> ON T^E Landlord and Tenant Bill, he expressed an opinion stronglv in faveur of a system of long leases as furnishing TH? -oV Wb Th?7 '° h" landlord and Jaft J ? -I-J' SUPPORTED a bill to give in creased facilities for the Transfer of Land on SP ground that it would be of great imnortance to the poor man woo wished to become the proonVfS of a small piece of land.On May 1, HE BQZNRTS a ensure for the Abolition of Cap t,l Pnnifhmlf expressing his opinion that public execution* not tend to repress crime, and where abhorrent M humanity. —On June 13, he supported the PUHII^ Libraries and Museums Bill, considering £ measure to be one of the greatest ijfl G E the country.' Ou June 3, 1852 he called T0 as he had already done'on LEV'RA ^1011' casions, to the large quantity of TTNC-STRL• F °°2 Waste Land in England, and desire-T'TN measure adopted by which FACILITY • TF/U6 SOME Of representative County Boards-a MEES*E bad been proposed as earlr AS Febmrm- 1837 S MR Hume, and rejected then as too I Democratic, out now, in 1883,put in tbe foro^S of the measures to be brought FORWARD H Liberal Government.
