She was well known for her liberality to the cause of Calvinistic Methodism, and also to the poor. The second meeting in connection with the Rhyl Gospel Temperance Society was held on Friday, and proved most successful. Mr James Taylor presided, and addresses were delivered by the Revs T. Pritchard (Rhyl), T. J. Madden (Li verpool), &c. A large number donned the Blue Ribbon. Mr David Davies, M.P., has received a well- deserved tribute to his generosity ia the presenta- tion of an illuminated address by the Calvinistic MeLhodist Monthly Meeting, held at Llanidloes The aadrpss, as a woikof art, was probably equal to anything that has been designed in that lllle, while it bore unmistakable testimony to the high ssteem in which Mr Davies is held by what he feelingly termed the Old Corph." ABERYSTWYTH GRAMMAR SCHOOL.—Since the dis- tribution of prizes at Christmas last, this school has gained the following successes:—Mr F. B. Roberts, Selwyn College, Cambridge, who left in October last, has passed successfully the previous examinations m classics and mathematics, and is 3iow reading for the mathematical tripos; Mr J. D.

THK ROYAL CAMBRIAN ACADEMY OF ART.—An important meeting of the North Wales artists and friends was held at Rhyl on Saturday to consider the advisability of holding a permanent summer exhibition of paintings. Mr Norbury, founder of the Academy, presided, and the object of the meeting was warmly taken up. Mr Winby, Palace Chambers, Westminster, and the Rev C. Whitaker, Rhyl, offered sites for a gallery at Rhyl. A com- mittee of local gentlemen present, consisting of Mr T. Morgan Owen, H.M.I., Major Penn, Major Wright, Mr Peter Browne (chief constable), and others, was formed to take steps to ascertain how far Rhyl was disposed to meet the proposal to fix a gallery of art, and probably a school as well, in that town, as being the most convenient North Wales centre. ACCIDENT IN A NORTH WALKS COLLIERY —K sad iatal accident took place at the Llay Hall Colliery, about three miles from Wrexbam, on Thursday momiag, by which a man named John Williams was kiliod. It appears that the deceased was at work down the shaft as usual, when from some cause a large poriiuu of tbe roof fell upon him, killing him at once. Williams leaves a wife and two children. FUNERAL OF OWAIX ALAW.—The burial of Mr John O-^en^Owain Alaw)J took place at Chester Cemetery on Friday. There was a large attendance ..)f personal friends of the drccased, but it was 4vtied that-owing, probably, to the fact of the time of sepulture not having been publicly an- nounced—-not a member of the bardic fraternity, nor yet a Welsh non-resident, was present. The funeral service was read by the Revs H. Grantham (St. Mary's) and Hugh Roberts (Welsh Church). The deceased had been for many years organist at St. Mary's Church, and since the work of restoring the Welsh Church had been, with the late Mr Ro- bert Roberts, of the Firs, joint secretary to that edifice. The age of the deceased was sixty-two years.

In Ruabon the blinds of every house were drawn, and the respect in whieh the family of Wynnstay is held was manifested in Oswestry, Wiexham, and Llangedwyn. Muffled peals were rung during the morning.

THE EXPLOSION IN A SOUTH WALES COLLIERY: FIVE PERSONS INJURED.—A severe explosion of fire-damp occurred about two o'clock oo Thursday afternoon in the Old Coed cae Pit, Rhondda Valley, resulting in five individuals being bur. t, two of them very seriously, viz., Joseph Holman (18), of Clifton-terrace, andWilliam Jones (32), of Cymmer. The ethers less severely injured are Smith (14), Britannia Village; Edward Moore (22), Porth; and Theophilus Salter (13), Britannia Village. The pit is 120 yards deep, and 230 men and boys are employed. On Thursday morning two men, Thomas Jones and William Jones, were employed at Coedcae for the first time. It was at the head- ing at which they were at work that the gas fired. Two ventilating doors were smashed to pieces, and many other doors burst open. About an hour before the disaster Mr Thomas Yorath, overman, visited the spot, and found everything safe. The injured men were brought in trains to the bottom of the shaft, where they were attended by Dr Evan Davies and Dr Vachell. Mr William Davies, the chief manager, was on the spot in five minutes I after the exp'osion occurred. After the men had been brought to the bank and taken into the col- liery office, they were conveyed to their homes It has been ascertained that the exp'esion was I caused by some person at present unknown leaving I open one of the doors on the intake heading. Late I at night it was ascertained that a blower had | broken out where the two Jones's were working, having apparently been tapped by the coal being removed by them. By a singular coincidence the door was left open at the same time that the blower broke out. Colliers work the seam by naked lights. j A WELSH BISHOP STRICKEN WITH BLINDNESS.— ( An old bell, made by Phillip Wrightman, A D. 1700, has been rehung in the tower of the Church of St. James, Garlickhithe, London. There is a curious story, told by Newcourt, of Dr Arth»2 Buckley, rector of this church in 1531, and made Bishop of Bangor in 1541. This prelate sold fi7e bells out of the steeple of his cathedral, and went to the sea side to see them shipped off. He had not set three feet on his journey homewards before he was sticken with blindness, so that he never saw afterwards. DEATH OF MR WALTER LLOYD. OF ABERDARE.— With deepest regret we (South Wales Daily News) have to chronicle the deat'i of Mr Walter Lloyd, after a long and painful illness, on Wednesday afternoon. He was well known as the proprietor of the Ovoladgarvcr weekly newspaper, and had won for himself universal esteem, not on!y in his own ima13diate neighbourhood, but also throughout South Wales. For a period of about 28 years he had resided at Aberdare, and by means of his paper, as well as personal influence and reputa- tion, had exerted a healthy and widespread influ- ence on all hands. He had taken a leading part in the establishing of the English Calvinistic Methodist cause in Aberdare, and continued a faithful and honourable deacoB of that church to the time of his death. The Sunday School move- ment also in conneetiou with Trinity Chapel found in him, at all times, a warm supporter, and previous to his illness, a valued leader and super- intendent. By his death, Welsh literature espec- ially has lost an able and enthusiastic supporter. The deepest sympathy is felt with the bereaved family in their heavy afilLtion. A MILITARY SCANDAL.—The action Burnaby v. Williams is down for hearing before the High Court of Justice during the present sittings. It arises out of a complaint made to the commander. in-chief by Major-General Owen Williams, M.P., lately commanding the Royal Horse Guards, that Colonel Burnaby, now commanding that regiment, had sent for publicat on to the editor of a weekly newspaper a paragraph of a scurrilous nature re- flecting upon him. Colonel Burnaby applied to the authorities for a military investigation, which was refused as being inapplicable to the circum- stances of the case—that General Williams not be- ing upon full pay, was therefore not amenable to the Horse Guards. Hence Colonel Burnaby's re- sort to the civil tribunal. THE NORTH WALES COLLIERS. — Most of the colliers in North Wales, after having bsen for one day on strike, resumed work on Tuesday morning on the old terms, but at some of the collieries in the Wrexham district no agreement has been ar- rived at. As showing the divided opinion existing among the employes t it may be mentioned that at the Gate-wen Colliery, one of the largest in North Wales, the hurriers, &c., are agitating in favour of six days per week instead of five. They declare that five days' work by the coal getters would mean only four for them, and they cannot possibly live upon the money earned during only four days a week. What the outcome of this counter move- ment may be remains to be seen. A SPENDTHRIFT AND His ESTATE.-An extra- ordinary story of family history was recounted by Sir Hardinge Giffard at Cheater Assizes on Tues- day, before Lord Chief Justice Coleridge and a special jury. It was an action brought to recover possession of certain land at Welshpool, plaintiff being John Piers Lloyd Jones, who claimed through his next friend, Maria Jane Jones. The defen- dants are Mrs Flora Jones Curling, Welshpool, and John Arthur Kendrick, Edgbaeton, Birmingham, Plaintiff's father came into possession of cohsidsi-' able estates in Shropshire and Montgomeryshire by the death of his grandfather, and immediately be- gan to spend money lavishly in forming ornameu- tal waters, keeping hounds, and leading a very pay and fast career. He soon became involved in diffi- culties, and subsequently married his housekeeper. He, however, continued his wild career, and be- came in course of time entirely penniless, and went to live in France, where he died at the age of 92. Three children were born of the marriage before his death. Mr Piers Jones made a settlement of certain property on his wife and children, and it was on this settlement that the action was brought the son claiming that the property forming the sub- jectofthc action was included in the settlement, and the defendants, who had bought the property for some £52,000, declaring that it was not. A number of witDesoes will be called, and the case is likely to occupy the court some time. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF WALES.— The follow- ing students have passed the Matriculation Examination of the University of London, re- cently held: —In the First Division: E. W. Davies, J. B.

DEATH OF THE REV DAVID SAUNDERS'S SON.— We are sorry to hear of the death of JMr David H. Saunders, Jun., son of the Rev David Saunders, pastor of Trinity Chapel, Park street, Swansea. Mr Saunders was a very hopeful young man, about 19 years of age, and was articled to Mr Morgan, solicitor, Cardiff. This is the third death in the family within a few years. THE SOUTH WALES COLLEGE SCHEME.—The committee at Swansea appointed in connection with the proposed new college for South Wales held a meeting on Monday evening,at which final instruc- tions were given to Sir Hussey Vivian, M P., and Mr J. Coke Fowler, the two deputies who are to represent the town before the referees. Lord Justice Bramwell "has consented to act as referee, but Lord Carlingford has not yet replied. The Swansea subscriptions amount to £ 10,000. SINGULAR ACCIDENT.-On Monday evening a fatal accident occurred at Tyddyn-ucha' farm, Pen-y-lan.Denbighshire. Mr Nathan Hutchinson, tenant of the farm, and his son. aged 12, were cutting straw, when the stack fell bodily upon them. The son was smothered and killed on the spot; Mr Hutchinson was recovered in an insensi. ble condition, bat is expected to recover. The accident is rendered additionally sad by the fact that Mrs Hutchinson is away on a visit to her parents. Deceased was an only son. ROYAL CAMBRIAN ACADEMY oilARTS. -The annual meeting of the members of the Royal fCambrian Academy of Arts was held on Monday, at the Llan. dudno Junction Hotel. Mr Norbury, founder of the Academy, presided over an attendance including Messrs Clarence Whaite, W L. Bankes. H. Mes. haaa, J. Taylor, W. Meredith, W. D. Barker C. Potter, Brandish Holt Salmon (Liverpool), G. Hayes, W. Artingstall, J. Johnson (Trefriw), &c. Letters of apology for non-attendance were read from Messrs J. D. Watson and F. Taylor. From the annual report presented by the council, it appeared that the institution was in a flourishing condition,and that the*naugural exhibition held it Llandudno had been attended with success, there being a large number of t xtrhita. The accounts showed a balancer in hand £ >? j654 Mr Norbury (Rhyl) was re-elected ijnriH.n, Mr Charles Potter vii e-chairman, and H'? BWlftes honorary secretary. Messrs G. Hayes and W.

THE WIND. Sadly the wind howls to and fro, I 'Tit like a di"mal wail of woe, That tells of someone in distress On land or sea; Whose cries are full of loneliness And misery. For in its voice there is no mirth, Fain would it have all tbings on 3arth Yie,d to its wild impetuous sway And headlong flight. Dreary it makes the darkening day The silent night. 0 mournful spirit! restless elf Why strnggle so against thyself? Thy wailing, sighing, seems to tell Of friends long loat, Of partings we remember well- The tears they cost. So moans and sighs the restless heart That cannct from its sorrowev-part, But struggling on 'gainst Tie's decree The troubled breast Is tempest driven, till gets she Eternal rest. 0 murmuring wind! what dost thou know ? Sometimes thy yoice is whispering low. Is that a secret tile of love, We hear to-day ? Or b1.:t thy dying breath above Passiug away' So now when all is calm and still, Th,t ceaseless moan is hushed at will, Now when thy wild unrest is past In silence deep, Thou, like the fretful heart, at last, Hath rest in sleep.

HOLYWELL PARISH CHARITIES. LETTER IX. SIR,—Humphrty Roberts*s Charity.—Mx Roberts, a druggist in tligh-strest, Holywell, made his will February 9th, 1848, and on the 11th of the same month he died. The following is an extract of his will:—"I give and bequeath to the Viscount Fielding and the Honourable Edward Mostyn Y" I Lloyd Mostyn, their exec tors, administrators, and assigns, the sum of JE500 upon trust thatthey, or the survivor of th<'m, doandshall invest theeame in their or his names, or name, in some one of the public stocks or funds of Great Britain, or at interest upon real securities in England and do and shall pay unto tlm rharchvy/rd ns and overseers of the poor for the time being of the parish of Holywell, in the county of Flint, to the intent that the same interests, dividends, and annual produce may be a perpetual fund for the benefit ot the poor residing in and bdo>tging to the said parish of Holyweli. And for that purpose, that the churchwardens and overseers for the time being of the said parish of Holywell do and shall by and with the interest, dividends, and annual produce, so to be paid to them as aforesaid, purchase articles of clothing, and on St. Thomas's Day in every year distribute such articles of clothing to and among such of the said poor as they the said churchwardens and overseers, shall think proper so, nevertheless, that the articles of clothing so given to any one individual shall not exceed in value the sum of three shillings." This will was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury on the 9th day of May, 1848, by the Rev John Roberts and John Thomas Roberts, Esq., the nephews of the de- ceased, the executors. The first reference to this charity in the vestry book is in April, 1857, nine years after the bene- factor's death, when the Churchwardens for this past year this day ]r:.id before the vestry abstracts of the accounts relating to the various charities belonging to the poor of this parish, p"reparatory tQ their transmission to the Charity Commissioners,— that is to say,Humph' eyRoberts'sCharity forClothing" Ttds money was inyegted in the Consolidated Au- nuities, at'u tae Interest, flf I?? is paid by the Charity Commissioners. In my Letter I, on the George's Charities, I stated that the present vicar of Holywell employed his bro- ther in 1878 to make a new form of charities account book, and therein he inserted under one heaiing, "E. and N. George and Humphrey Roberts—for clothing, and these two charities are so mixed to this day. On the Benefaction Tables in the parish church is a reference to Mr Roberts's charity there plainly painted that it is to be distributed by the churchwardens and overseers. During the present vicar's ministration, it is he and the churchwardens who have distributed this charity —one and the same ticket being issued for both this and the George's Charities. How the Rev R. O. Williams can do this or permit it to be done, seeing, as he must, the Benefaction Tables in his church He has repeatedly told me that he must, and will look after the trusts (charities) imposed upon him; with equal determination he should see that the overseers discharge their trust in this charity, and not take upon himself what is neither his duty nor right. One overseer for twelve suc- cessive years informs me that he had never heard of this charity until it appeared in the Express and although the present vicar and church- wardens were fully aware of the conditions of this charity, they took no steps to carry out the benefactor's will this last St. Thomas's Day, but made the distribution them. selves. Even in this they did not their duty; Mr Humphrey Roberts directed that the church- wardens and overseers are themselves to PURCHASE the articles of clothing, and on St Thomas's Day, distribute them to the poor. Instead of this, the vicar and churchwardens distributed tickets, and the receivers took them to a shop to select what they liked themselves. If it is too much trouble to carry out the benefactor's will, they should not undertake the office. Mr Roberts, who had been a churchwarden for many years, knew of existing abuses, and he wished to establish the good and safe plan of purchasing the articles first and after- wards hand them to the recipients, and so secure warm clothing" to the poor. By mixing thii charity with the George's it means an e of iwo thin gs—(1) An admission that the George's Oharity should be distributed upon the same system as Mr Roberts's-both to be distributed by the churchwardens and overseers, as the George's Charities formerly were. (2.) An attempt to deprive the overseers of their right to a share in the dis. tribution. In either case, the will is not carried Dut: the recipients are to be the poor who are born "nd reside in the parish—whether they reside in Nant-y-flint or Lletty-y-frogod; at Holway or Ooleshill-fawr, Mr Roberts, as an old church- warden, knew of abuses and desired a remedy, and bo establish the catholicity of his benefaction be. queathed th3 money in trust to a Roman Catholic and a Protestant, and not to confine it to the Holy- well Parish Church. Miss EmmlJ, Willilfhns's Charity.—Miss Williams was a native of Holywell. She died July 11th, 1858, at Southsea. She did by her will, dated Augubt 19fch, 1840, and proved August 2nd, 1858, in the principal registry of her Majesty's Court of in the principal registry of her Majesty's Court of Probate, bequeath to Edward ScargiU and John Joues the sum of £ 5G0 upon trust to invent the J same in the 3 per cent. Consolidated Bank of Annu- ities in the names of trustees to be appointed for this purpose by the incumbent and churchwardens af the parish of Holywell, Flintshire and she has thereby directed that the trustees so appointed shall from time to time and for ever pay the divi- dends of the said Bank Annuities as they shall become due to the incumbent for the time being of the said parish of Holywell, and tha+ the said in- cumbent shall from um^to time as, and when he shall reoeive the said dividends, pay and apply the same for the benefit of such poor old women, na- bivesof the town of Holywell, who being unequal to labour, ma be real objects of the charity as the said incumbent and churchwardens for the time bein?, or the maj rity of thenj, shall in their full direction think proper." The aforesaid sum of C500 was accordingly invested January 25, 1859, in the purchase otjE519 9a 7d, £ 3 per cent. Con- solidated Bank Annuities in the names of the official trusteps of charitable funds pursuant to the provisions of the Charitable Trusts Amend- ment Act. 1855, the dividend to be applied as di- rected." Although this charity is to be distributed by the rfc r And churchwardens, the latter know nothing ibout it, they kuow not how or to whom it is listributed, neither do they know what dividends ire received All is done by the vicar himself. 1 he first reference to this charity in the parish restry book is written by Canon Huzh Jones, the ;hen vicar:—"The following charities were laid before the vestry by the churchward'vis, viz., Miss Emma Williams's Chanty, for the year ending 31st t December, 1859." The next is in the Rev R. O. Williams's writing, April 2nd, 1877 (a space of 18 I' years) The accounts of the fol's-i^g chariti- s were laid before the vestry, Mitss Emma Williams." Not a word about their being examined and found correct; for in the same book, April 22nd, 1878, I there is a minute in the Rev R. O. Williams's writing:—"Seeing they (this year's church- wardens) have not received the balances due by their predecessore in office, the ve try requires them o have their predecessors' books examined by an accountant." There is also a minute in the vestry book, April 22, 1818The vicar having submitted the accounts of the late John Hughes, Mrs Bab, and Miss Emma Williams's Charities, they were examined and allowed as correct," I was present at that vestry, but I did not see and examine these accounts. This minute indicates that the present vicar claims Miss Wil- liams and Mr John Hughes's as in his own keeping. The churchwardens have as much to do with them as he has, and they should keep an account of them, and not permit the Rev R. O. Williams to kei-p private books, which it appears from this minute he rloes. Ellt., Parry's Charity. -Letters 2 and 3.—In the vestry book, November 13, 1868, are the following minutes touchingthis charity Resolved, that the proposal made by Mnjor Barnston for an ex- change of a portion of his land in the township of Bagillt Fawr for a portion of land belonging to the poor of Holywell, in the iame township of Bagillt Fawr, will be beneficial to the parish" "That Mr Isaac Taylor be appointed valuer and surveyor, ind that he be requested to report to the vestry as to the value of the respective pro- perties." What was done there is no evidence in the vestry book to show. Can the Charity Com- missioners in this case, as with the attempted sale of the George's Charity property (Letters 1. 2) have prohibited the exchange ? Greenfield, Holywell. Tiios. HUGHES.

Sympathy with Sir Watkin.—The mayor pro- posed a vote of condolence and sympathy with the senior member for the county, during his long and painful illness, and especially in his sorrow in losing his daughter. He remarked that the worthy baronet is respected alike by both political parties, and all the county deeply sympathized with him in his sad bereavement and ill health. Mr J. C. Wynne Edwards seconded the proposal, speak- ing in warm praise of the late Miss Nesta Wil- liams Wynne, and as one who knew Sir Watkin intimately for many years. This proposal was carried unanimously. 2'he Monthly Report of the Medical Officer -In the abs<^nc^ of the medical officer of the borough (Dr G. W. Roberts), his report was read by the town clerk ft :showed the health of the town to be remarkably good, there being 11 deaths during the month.

Borough Surveyor's Report.-This' officer's (Mr J. Davies) report was read, and on its recommenda- tion it was decided to1 re-lay the drain pipes at Panton Hall; to make a new peat for the curface water near Ceppy; to get Mr Griffiths, the road contractor, to keep the road scrapings more tidy and that the town clerk should write to a surveyor, whose district adjoins the borough, to get him to stop the surface water from running into the borough roads.

LIBERALISM -011 Friday, Mr George Mason, of the National Reform Union, delivered a lecture in the Maeonic Hall, Llandudno, in connection with the local Junior Liberal Association. Dr Bold WIlliams presided. The subject of the lecture was Redistribution of Seats and the County Franchise At its close a cordial vote of thanks was parsed to the lecturer.—Subsequently the annual meeting of the Llandudno senior branch of the Carnarvonshire Liberal Association was held -Mr Barker, the president of the branch, in the chair. In the annual report, which was read by Mr G. H. Pugh, the honorary secretary, the committee recorded a year of quiet work without much political excitement. The priucipal work of an association during a time of quietude like the present was to attend to the registration, and thus prepare for the struggle when it came. The registration work during the year had been of ex- ceptional difficulty in consequence of there having been so many changes in the occupation and ownership of pr perty in the district. The relative strength of the two political parties had been scarcely disturbed by the late revision, the net gain for the three parishes being one Liberal vote. There was, however, a substantial Liberal majority upon the register as it now stood. Through the liberality of Mr W. Carver, PI is Gcgarth, and Mr John Walker, Osborne House, I the balance due to the treasurer upon the last ac- count had been wiped off. The work of the asso- ciation was for the most part voluntary, but the I necessary expenses involved an outlay of abrut I £ 40 per annum. It vvas worthy of remark that the total number of voters on the register for the county was 7031, the principal polling districts be- ing as follows:—Llandudno, 566 voters; Ll-n- llechia, 41)2 Iiaugor, 459 Llanddeiniolen, 416; Ynyscynhaiarn. 342; and Carnarvon, 281—On the motion of Dr Bnld Williams, the report was 1 adopted, and a vote of thanks was passed to Mr G. H. Pugh (Messrs Minshall and Pugh) and the other honorary officers of the association. Mr T Barker (Brynderwen and Aigburth) was re-elected president, and the following vice-presidents were appointed: — Dr Bold Williams, Messrs W. Carver, J. Walker (Eglinton House), D. P. Davies (Ty'n-y coed), and the Rev J. S-piither James. Mr G H. Pugh and Mr Thomas Edge were re- spectively re- elected honorary secretary and honorary treasurer. A general council and an executive committee were elected, and the follow- ing were constituted a registration committee Dr Bold Williams, Rev J. S. James, Messrs Samuel Roberts, S. O. Hughes, and R. O. Owen. On the motion of the chairman, seconded by the honorary secretary, it was resolved "That the best thanks of this meeting be given to Mr W. Rathbone, M.P., with an assurance that his Parlia men.ary conduct has given his constituents the greatest sitisfactiou; and this meeting pledges itself to use all legitimate means to support him at the next election" (hear, hear). A vote of confidence in the Government was also passed, and the proceedings closed with the customary compliment to the chairman. A letter of apology for non-attendance, owing to indisposition, was read from Mr R. D. Williams, Carnarvon, the general secretary of the Carnarvon County and Borough Liberal Association. BANGOR.

DEBATING SOCIETY.—The usual weekly meeting of this society was held on Thursday 1st inst., Mr F. Sherville presiding. subject of the debate was "That all between different countries should be settled bX arbitration, and not by war." Mr Alun Lloff, opened for the affirmative, and contended that available disputes should be settled by arbitrate11! for to go to war was a very serious matter, only a costly but a very lamentable t.hinp to tb country at large. He was supported by Mr Watts. Mr J. W. Davies, in supporting negative, argued th?t it was almost impossible t° settle disputes, whether available or r otbyarb1' trauon. Arbitration is a very unsatisfactory of settling disputes, for assuming that countries were to agree to refer disputes to arbitration, that on the decision being given one of tb countries was dissatisfied, the inevitable res?1 would be that they wou 1d finally settle tkeir putes by war. Besides, it was almost impossib* to settle the disputes in the colonies by arbitration owing, in the majority of cases, to the'ir state and he therefore maintained that the beB way of Bettling all disputes generally would be Vf war. He was supported in this view ly Mr NeVitO in a vigorous speech. Mr Sherville, Mr Aldricb* Mr R. Lloyd, Mr E. W. Lloyd, and others, took part in the discussion, and on going to tb? vote there was a majority of one in favour 0 arbitration.
