The Rev J. F. Reece presided. The entertain- ment chiefly comprised views of the principal buildings in London, parts of Scotland and Wales, and of tho principal cities on the Continent, and also of the Pyramids, &c.

The number of guests were about 200, and the enter- tainment throughout was a great success, especi- ally as regards the preparations, which were on a grand Imd liberal scale, and it eclipses anything that has taken place in this neighbourhood for many years, and it was a treat which will not Boon be forgotten amongst young and old. A rich and sumptuous supper was laid out in the magnificent dining-room, and truly the sight wae splendid. The object of this ball must have been a pure love on the high sheriff's part to set- his fellow-creatures en j oying themselves. It must have been a pleasure to him to see the numerous company looking so happy. There were only two or three of his per- sonal friends that could be expected to return the compliment. Professional waiters were engaged, and everything done in tb e very beat and most costly style. Mr Stephenson's we:l-known string band from Wrexham was engaged for the occasion, and dancing was kept up in the splendid saloon, with its polished floor, until about half-past four in the morning. Thanks is due to the high sheriff for his kindness in providing such a treat of so enjoyable a nature.—Hitgo.

WREXHAM. THE INFECTIOUS FEVER HOSPITAL QUESTION.—On Tuesday, the mayor and several other members of theWrexham rown Council waited upon the Wrex- ham Rural Sanitary Authority with reference to the proposal of that authority to construct an in- fectious fever hospital contiguous to the new borough cemetery, and to which the town council object, both on sanitary grounds and also because it would, they allege, prevent them from extending the cemetery iM the future in thr., only direction in which it can be properly enlarged.—Along dis- cussion followed, and eventually the subject was adjourned for further consideration at a future meeting. LOCAL SELF GOVERNMENT.— On Tuesday, a special meeting of the Wrexham Rural Sanitary Authority was held for the purpose of considering the present working arrangements and business of that authority with a view to re-org ^iZ8 the same. The clerk read an exbausti^ report, detailing the wo-k which the authority had performed since its formation in :87-2. The expenditure since that date ha"å.o¿n £ 39 487 —Mr Murray Browne, Local Government Board inspector, suggested that a copy of this valuable document should be sent to the Local Government Boird. This was agreed to, and it w;M also ordere 1 to be printed for gen- eral circulation.—Mr W. Lester next proceeded to address the meeting at great length upon the bene- fits of local self-government, which be considered the most vital condition of our nati@nal life and prosperity. He proposed that the union be divided for sanitary purposes into two dietucts of about equal extent and population, and that one in- spector of nuisances, at a salary of EI50 per year, and one medical officer, at a salary of JE60 per year, should be appointed for each district. He maintained that the adoption of his proposals would effect a saving of £200 per year.—The chairman (Captain Griffith Boscawen), Mr John Burton, and "evJral other gentlemen ex- pressed themselves in favour of Mr Lester's pro- posals, and, after considerable discussion, they were adopted and I referred to a committee to woik out the necessary details.—Mr Lester ahn proposed that a consulting engineer should be ap. pointed by the authority. This was seconded, and agreed to unanimously. A CHILD KILLED BY A TBAMCAR.—Mr B. H. Thelwall, coroner for Wrexham, held an inquest in that town on Wednesday on the body o George William Swann, five years of age, son of a compositor living at Wrexham. Between six and seven o'clock the previous e7enmg the child was found underneath a tramcar shortly after it had left the terminus at Wrexham for Rhop. One of the unfortunate child's feet was torn off, and there were compound fractures of the legs. Deceased was taken to the Wrexham Infirmary, where he died half an hour after admission. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that death was accidental, but that there was no evidence to show how the child got under the wheels. The jury, however, desired that the lessee of the tramways should be asked in future to see that his m-n were more careful, if possible, in keeping children away from the cars, and to take action by prosecution or otherwise to prevent such accidents in the future.

The guardians did not seem to recognize the im- Partauce of the subject.—Mr D. Williams thought that the guardians were net to blame, as there were necessarily governed by public opinion. It a guardian was strict in carrying out the poor law, he became unpopular and had very little chance of re-election. -The chairman said that public opinion ought to be enlightened on the sub- ject. If public opinion went against the guard- ians doing what was right, the guardians should retire and not give way to the ignorance of the people.—Mr J. Morgan said he had studied the question closely for the last 23 years, and be was strongly opposed to a seveie administration of the poor law and compelling persons to break up their homes and enter the workhoupe.—Mr R.

DISASTROUS FIRE AT HOLYWELL. A LARGE FLANNEL FACTORY BURNT DOWN. Great consternation wAs caused in Holywell. on Monday morning, by the news that the building known as the Top Factory was on fire. The news proved to be but too t'ue, and thousands of people hurried to the spot and rendered all the assistance they could, but in an hour and a half from the time that the fire was discovered the whole structure was in ruins. The fire was first dis- covered in a room on the fourth etorey,from which I two female operatives ran down, and spread the alarm that one of the self-acting spinning "mules "was on fire. This was at 6 30 a. m, and in about five minutes afterwards the place was so filled by deuce smoke that it was impossible for anyone to remain in the room. There were at the time about 65 persons at work within the building, which is 160 feet lonll and six stories high, the walls averaging 20 to 22 inches in thick- ness, and the operatives onlv just succeded in escaping before the whole factory was in flames. An operative, named John Jarvis, together with others of his fellow-workmen, at once BPt to work to rescue as much of the woo! as possible, and by seven o'clock the Holywell Fire Brigade, I commanded, bv Mr Joseph Jones, was on the °cene. The engine, which is of a rather antiquated character, did excellent work; but it was evident from the commencement that a dozen such machines would have been of little avail in coping with so great a conflagration wh're there was such a large amount of combustible matter. Towards eight o'clock the Dee Bank Works (Bagillt) fire engine was on tVespot; and the Chester fire oneine and brigade were wired for, and were about to leave the General Railway Station by rail when a telegram was received stating that their services were unnecessary. Captain Hincks, however, proceeded to Holywell, to find that the old flannel mill was a perfect wreck. As the building was situated in a kind of valley, crowds of people availed themselves of the points of vantage to be had on either side of the building. Mr Thomas Huehes, manager of Messrs Newton, Keates, aid Co.'s works, sent a number of men to assist in saving the property, as also did Mr J- Lloyd Grice, brewer; *he Great Holway Mining Company, and others, whilst scores of people from the town and vicinity readily lent their aid. As to the origin of the fire, nothing can be said beyond conjecture, one prevalent opinion being that "ome one must have been oiling the machinery with a niked light in his hand. However that may be, the de- struction was very great. The factory is one of two in Holywell owned by the Welsh Flan- nel Company, of which Mr W. Browne, of Chester, is chairman; Mr U Bromley, of Chester, managing director and Mr T. H. Waterhouse, secretary. These gentlemen, together with Mr Enoch Lewis, Mostyn Quay, another director, were on th j scene during the greater pnrt of the day. The com- pany wr.s formed eight or nine years ago with the object the secondary object, of corbie—of giving empl >j rr.ont to a portion of the population, and the enterprise has been fnirly successful, considering the depression of trade which has for some time prevailed, so successful that the company have been enabled to declare a dividend of 5 per cent., while so recently as last week a contract had been entered into for extending the lower factory, placing stone staircases in both factories, and for addiag'a wool store house to the upper factory. The upper factory, which was on Monday demol- ished, was used for sorting, carding, and spin- ning, and the building, whieh was fitted up with the most modern machinery, contained 3096 spin- dles, six pairs of carding engines, and a wool warehouse, offices, &c. In the lower factory, all the weaving, finishing, and washing was done, so that the one factory was dependent on the other, the result being that about 170 people are thrown out of employment. The machinery was worked by the stream from the famous St. Winifred's Well and the stream which runs from Holway. With reference to thf latter source, it may be mentioned that only recently, at great cost, a 20 inch pipe wAm laid to convey the water'to the factory, and a new water wbeel 25 fpet in diameter constructed. Fortunately the manufactured stock was saved, and the directors anticipate that they will be able to supply all orders on hand. The factory was built towards the end of the last century as a cotton mill by Messrs Smallev and Co., and there is a tradition (mentioned by Pennant in bis Journeys through Wales, we believe) that the entire structure was put up in six weeks. A glance at the build- ing, however, woul.1 have satisfied any one that this was Jextrernely improbable, 'though fthe factory was not nearly so substantisll v. built as the Lower Factory. In Inter years the factory has been Uf ed by various corapnnies with indifferent success for the manufacture of Welsh flannni, and wan taken by the present company about nine years ago—it being then reused—on a leaso of 99 years from the late Sir Pyers Mostyn, w th the success already mentioned. The mills turned out weekly, on an average, 50 to 60 pieeo.s of real Welsh flannel—a "ptecr" being equal to about 170 yards. The factory will. of course, be re-built, and in the meantime it is understood the company will endeavour to secure a mill for spinning pur- poses. Fortunately no lives were lost on Monday, nor,were there art. personal injuries of ^ser- ious character. T<je wind was blowing to the nortb-wot at the time of the fire, otherwise the row of cottages known as Greenbeld terrace would have been in erreat danerer. The damage iq esti- mated at £ 5000, covered to a large rx eat Jby in- surance.

WHAT AMOUNT OF SUFFERING COULD BE AVOIDED IF WE ONLY KNEW HOW. It i < often remarked how many more people than formerly complain o( feeing unw-di. It is not tnat theie is a *ro iter amount of c ntagious disease afloat, for there is proof that the extent and strength of sue a are rar less tuan of yore, because of better ssmtary arrangements and th eater attention to cleanliness and other matters. The enor ous prevalence cannot he doubted of pains in the back, side, and chest: tnerv- ated and, languid feelings, with loss of energy dbt, eø8 and fullness of the stomach, with often a sense or deadly fsintness at its pit, which eating does not. stay: sick nea J ache so-called uupleas:iiit; rea,itii. a sense or weariness when rising in the morning, wita an unpleas-u.t taste in the mouth, and the loss of ap- petite or non-enjoyment of Ifood. The-e are but tue in kle.st eliects of feeling unwell," and yet how grent is the distress and sintering with hindrance to business and pleasure they give i ise to. The cause is llJt far to seek, it lies in the stomaca and digestive organs, which h tve become impaiied, to the distress of nearly nL the other functions or the body.

I have very much pleasure ia still bearing testimony to the very satit fac- tory results of the famert Syrup and Pills. Most patent medicines die out with me.but Mother cjaigel'* has had a steady sale ever since I commenced, and is still in as great a demand as when I iirst began to sell the medicine. The cures which have come under my notice are chiefly those of liver complaint and general debility. 1* A certain minister in my neighbourhood says it is the only th ng which ha* benefitted him an l restortd him to his normal cond t on of henth hffcer being unable t > preach for a considerable length of time. I coidd mention also a great many other cases, but space would not ahow. A n^ar friend of mine, who is very much addicted t > costiveness, or constipation, finds tiat Mother Seigel's Pills are the only pills which suit his complaint. All other pill* ciuse a reaction, which is very annoying. Mother Seigel's Pilis do not leave a bad aft^r-effect.

LLANRWST. CHAPEL RESTORATION—On Sunday last a new Calvinistic Methodist chapel was opened at Llan- rwst, the ministers taking part in the special ser- vices being the Rev. 0 Thomas, D. D., Liverpool; Joseph Thomas, Carno and D. 0. Davies, M.A., Londoa. The site, which is that previously occu- pied by the old cha,pel buildings, is a somewhat elevated one, situated on the left of the road lead- ing to the town from the station. Palladian classic is the style of architecture chosen, and the treatment of the exterior is broad and massive. The materials employed are local blue stone and Anglesey limestone. The ground flo->r stage of the front is rus'icated work, and executed wholly in limestone. Three deeply-recessed archways give access to a portico 18ft. 6in. bi 7ft., which projects slightly from the general line of frontage. Above the imposing entrance thus formed, the projection is divided into three bays by columns of the Tuscan order, the whole being surmounted by an entablature and pediment. The flanks of this elevation, together with the other elevations, are somewhat ei apler in detail, but the circular- headed and pedimented doors and windows, with their boldly moulded architraves, give character to the whole building. Passing through the portico above described, to the right and left are vesti- bales which communicate directly with the gallery staircases, and through inner vestibules with the main floor of the chapel. The gallery staircases have also separate exit doors in the front eleva- tion. Galleries are carried round three eides of the chapel, and extend ovee the portico and vestibules. Behind the pulpit, which is placed opposite the entrance and on a slightly lower level than the other galleries, there is a singers' and organ gallery in an arched recess The ceiling, which is coved on three sides is of wood, divided into panels, with moulded and gilt enriched pich pine ribs, the panels being painted in two f-hades of blue. The whole of the pews are of pitch pine, and they are arranged in every direction to face the pulpit. The total sitting accomodation provided is for 800. The internal dimensions of the chapel are 62 feet 6 inches by 51 feet, by 30 feet high. Behind the chapel, audcomMUBioating therewith through a door behind th., pulpit aad uiider the singers' gallery—are, on the ground floor, deacons' and preachers' vestries, lavatories, keeper's residence, &c., and on the upper il )or, over those last men- tioned, a lecture hall 56 feet by 27 feet, by 18 feet h gh. Direct access to these rooms is obtained by siete entrance-. The extreme dimension of the but dmg is 10S feet by 61 feet. The architect has evidently bestowed careful attention on every feature, externally and intarnally, and the result is a pleasing congruity of the whole. The building is heated on the small-pipe hot;water system by Messrs R. Ronton, Gibbs, and Co., of Liverpool. Gas fittings have bem supplied through Mr Tho- mas Jours, of Llanrwst. Tne gene al contract was entered into by Mr Samuel Parry, Ll«nr *st, for £ 4t49, and he has executed the whole works in a very satisfactory manner. The architect was Mr Richard Davies, of Bangor. The total outlay is about £ 500#, and the totalsubscriptions, including collections made in the opening seivice. amount to about £ 2500, the chief subscribers being Mrs Pritchard, Pen y bout, £ 420; Mr M. Jones, Church-street, .£100; and JE50 each from Mrs Williams, Gwydyr House: Mr D. Roberts, Pea- 'rallt, Abergele; Mr tagoed Jones; Mr D T. Davies, Ty'n-y coed, LlarJrhos; Mr Griffith Owen, Llanrwst; Mr M. Davies, Penisa'rdre', and the late Mr Jones, 19, Falkner-street, Liverpoel.
