I BOARD OF GUAREIANS.—The fcrtnight'y meeting of this board was held on Saturday last, when there were present — Messrs John Thomas, Erw Fawr (in tho chair), John Jcnes, O. O. Roberts, E. H. OKM. R. H. Parry, David Jones, Henry Williams, William Williams, John Robarts, Wil- liam Jores (Pen-y-grces), Thomas Edwards, Micbael Owen, Henry Parry, John Thomas (Clynnog), O. Roberts, Lewis Hughes, David Jones (Llanidan), Hugh Thomas Thomas Jones, I and R. P. Jones.—The clerk reported that £ 392 4s 8d had been paid in out relief during the past fortMght; ditto tc noa-settled poor, £ 24 '12s Id. Number in the house, 93, as against 1G6 for the same period last year vagrauts, 15.—Permission wao given to the master of the house to sell the Union pony, if he was offered a good price for it. —Mr W. Jones, Pen-y-groes, in compliance with a notice of motion given by him at the previous board, proposed that the pay. station at Llamlyfni lie removed to Pen-y-groes. The old woman in whose house the relieving officer used to pay a- Llanllyfni having died, he (the speaker) could not think of a more convenient time to make the change, which VI as undoubtedly a necessary one, as about two. thirds of the paupers paid at that station came from the Pen-y-groes district, beveral of the members thought Llanllyfni more centrally situated, and that it would be unfair to comp 1 some oaupers to walk two or three miles in order to allow of the Pen-y-groes paupers to have their relief money at their doors. However, after some discussion, six guardians voted for the removal and six against, and the chairman gave his casting vote in favour of the removal.—A letter was read from the Secretary of State, claiming the ccst of the maintenance of Edmund Ryan, a native of Llan- ddeiniolen, at tho Carmarthen Asylum. Ryan had been imprisoned at Carmarthen for larceny, which he committed at Haverfoidwest, and whilst in prison had become a lunatic, and had to be removed to the Carmwrthen Asylum- The guardians instructed the clerk to write to the Secretary of State acknowledging their liability. A letter was read from "M. W. Pritchard," addressed Carnarvon Union," which had been forwarded to the Local Government Board. The writer censured the guardians for increasing the salary of the master of the workhouse. The sender not having sufficient courage to put his address on his communication, the guardians took it as an anonymous letter and ignored it. The clerk, however, was requested to inform the Local j Government authorities that the increase allowed in the salary of the master and matron had not been granted without ample justifi- cation. COUNTY MAGISTRATES' COURT, SATURDAY. -Before Mr Whitehead (chairman), Sir Llew- elyn Turner, Capt Wynn Griffith, and Mr Menzies. Poiehing and Unlawful Fosiession of Game.- David Jones and Cadwaladr Pierce, of Pen-y- groes, were charged with poaching at Ty Mawr, Clynnog, on the 16th inst. Mr Roberts, Pwll- heli, prosecuted. There w^s a second charge against Jones of having given a false name, but Mr Roberts said he did not intend to go on with that charge, as, owing to Jones's imp rfect know- ledge of English, it was just possible that he had given a wrong name through misunderstanding the question. Edward Parry, a gamekeeper in the employ of Lord Newborough, stated that on the 16th inst. he was on duty with another man at Ty Mawr, Clynnog, and he saw two men going along a fenca in search of rabbits. They both stopped together. He took out his glass and could see that they were setting rabbit-nets. He sent his companion down on one side of the fence, whilst he went down the other. By the time they got to the defendants they had got down to the shore. He asked them if they were obliged to catch rabbits on Ty Mawr. He al-co asked them what they were doing with the nets. On searching the defendants he found a ferret and nets. Nets produced. They said they had never been there before. He replied that if he had not caught the n they would not have been there then. They told him that if he let them go this time they would never come there again. Witness stated that poachers had given him and his assistants a great deal of trouble, and continual complaints had been made on the subject, and it was deter- mined to catch some of them and make an example of them. Mr Whitehead asked if the defendants had been before the court previously. Mr Davies, D.C.C., said they had not. They were fined 10s and costs each. The advocate's fee was allowed. Trespassing in Pursuit ef -Game.—Richard Jones and Thomas Williams appeared to answer a charge for this offence. Mr F. A. Evans, of the firm of Messrs Turner, Allanaon, and Evans, Carnarvon, appeared for defendants, and ask,d for an ad- journment, as his principal witness was unable to attend. He had, however, two letters-one from the landlord of the ground on which the alleged trespass was committed, stating that de. fendants had had his permission. Their worships granted the application, and the case was ad- journed till next Saturday. Obtaining Food and Lodjbu/s on False Pretences.— Grace Williams, Beaumaris, who was remanded on the 21st inst. on this charge, appeared agaiu. Catherine Owen stated that defendant came to her house about 8.30 on the 19th inst. She said that the mother of a little boy who was with her had recommended her to come to witness's house for lodgings, and had sent the boy to show her the way. Defendant stated that ehe had that morning sold her parents's furniture at Beaumaris, and that she had money to pay for her board and lodgings. Witness gave her one night's lodgings, and supplied her with four meals, chargisg her 6d per meal and 61 for the bed. Defendant, however, left without paying, and went to lodge at another house.—Mr Davies afrked for a remand for another week to obtain further evidence. The application was granted. jLisiult with intent to Rob.—John Parry, Car- narvon, a wild-looking fellow, who appeared, from the manner in which he stood at attention, to hava been a soldier, was charged with assaulting Mrs Mary Huxley, wife of Capt Huxley, Pool- street. Carnarvon, on the 19th inst., at seven o'clock at night, near Pont-rug, with intent to rob Mrs Huxley was coming home from Penisa'r- waen. Mr Davies asked for a remand in this case also, as an important witness was absent. The case was accordingly remanded till next Satur- day. BANGOB. MENAI BoCIE.Ty.-Dr Ov.en Price read a paper on "Nerves," to the members of this society, on Wednesday evening last. Colonel West occupied the chair.

Considering the geographical peculiarities of the collection, the pttgjjdance was large ,aud representative. The chair waa occup ed by tbe coile«tor, Mr H. Towns- Lead, whose tact and geniality largely enhanced the enioymeat of a pleftyrtrit evening. After the usual loyal toasts were disposed of, the vice-chairman gave The Cammisswaers of Inland Revenue," to which the cb*irmau responded. The chairman then proposed the hea'ths of the secretary, Mr Forsey, and the chief-inspector, Mr Molincux. He congratulated the fxcise branch on having such men at the head of their department, and he could assure th-em that these geutlemen, besides possessing high administrative abilities, were animated with the kinkliest sentiment towards every individual officer ia the service. The health of the collector, received with much enthusiasm, was proposed by Mr McMahon, who said that both as a superior officer and as a gentleman Mr Townshend had won the respcct and esteem of all ranks in the collection.—Mr King proposed The Supervisors," to which Mr Winslow responded, remaking that if it was true that good supervisors I' made good officers, it was equally true that good officers made good supervisors.—Mr Mescal gave The Clerks," to which Mr Buckley responded.- The chairman, in proposing" The Officers of Bangor Collection," paid a high compliment to their character, and expressed a convection that some of them would rise to positions of distinction in the service.—Mr Thomas responded, and alluded to the remarkable advancement the service in these days appeared to be making. He also noticed the effect s'upon the officers, of the vast "Variety in the duties performed by them, which he said "ranged from making an elaborate chemical analysis down to what Mr Gladstone would probably term making topographical canine inquiries."—Mr Winslow proposed the health of Mr Mills (examiner), to which that gentleman suitably responded. The toasts of "The Assistants" wfcs proposed, in a humorous speech, by Mr Buckley, and replied to by Mr Sanderson. -Mr Pearson proposed "The Ladies," to which Mr Lynch gave a feeling and eloquent response, and the chairman remarking that the subject was one not easily .exhausted caused considerable amusement by calling upon. a few pronounced bachelors to favour the company with their sentiments. The proceedings were enlivened by songs and recitations by Messrs Buckley, McMahon, Thorn, KeaLt, and Pearson. With the singing of "Auld Lang Syne," in which all joined, an evening delightfully spent was brought, to a close To Messrs Buckley, McMahon, Thorn, Mescal and Lynch, the collection is greatly in- debted for carrying out the arrangements which brought the "nret dinner" tJ a most succesful issue. The dinner and arrangements by Messrs Brown and Pughe were everything that could be desired. MISCELLANE-US ENTERTAINMENT AND PRESEN- TATION.—On Wednesday, the 20th inst., at the Qtleen's Head Calc, an entertainment was given in connection with the Prince's road Sunday School. Mr W. Payne occupied the chair. The hall was we: 1 filled. The chairman, after a few suitable rematks, called upon Miss Jennie Hughes to open the programme with a pianoforte Bolo, which was well executed. Master Ogden sang "The Anchor's Weighed very sweetly, although I the piece was scarcely suited to his voice. The audience were highly amused by the account of a I Bashful Man's Adventures," read by Master R. D. Hugbes. Mr A. Mackay sang the popular song 41 Dream Faces." The Better Land, by a party under the leadership of Mr Harding, was well received. Mr Harding then sang 44 The Great Chicago Show," and a repetition was loudly de- manded. It was quite a pleasure to listen to the singing of Miss Annie Williams, who sang I I Killarney." There was just ona drawback, however, and that was a slight tremor in her voice. If the tremor is the result of nervousness, then time will mend it; but if it is intended for effect, it would be better to omit it Mr Thomas sang lt Ouly an Armour Bearer," the audience joining in the chorus. Mr Thomas sang well, but accom- panied badly. Mr S. Hughes sang a humorous song, "The Schoolmaster's Cat," which caused much laughter. "Ehrone on the Rhine "was very weil rendered by Mr W. O. Elias, and re- ceived much applause. "The Vicar's Song" (from the "Sorcerer") was rendered very effee tively by Mr J. Williams. Mr P. Oament accom- panied Messrs Mackay and Elias; Mr and Miss Williams being accompanied by Miss M. Roberts. After refreshments had been partaken of, the chairman said the principal part of the programme had now been arrived at, and called upon Messrs Southwell aid Fotter to make a presentation to Mr and Mrs Harding on the occasion of their mar- riage, on behalf of the school and congregation. Mr Southwell said that the congregation were deeply indebted to Mr Harding for the great skill and devotion he had shown, and the interest he had f taken in the affairs of the chapel ever since he (Mr Harding) had come to Bangor, especially as ap- plied to the musical part of the services. "I am certain," said he, "that the singing in Prince's- roa=\ chapel will compare favourably with any chapel in Wales." He then expressed the wish that Mr and Mrs Harding would long be spared to lead happy and useful lives, and wished them all joy and happiness in their new life. Mr Southwell then p esented the happy couple, on behalf of the congregation and school, with a purse of gold and a Bible with a beautiful inscription. Mr Fieter being called upon to speak, said he doubted the advisability of making the music in chapel too attractive, as it was apt in some cases to make the service more or less of a mockery. However, Shakespeare was a man endowed with a great deal of insight into human nature, and he says, The man may be trusted who hath music in his soul," and Mr Harding is a man whose soul is moved by the concord of sweet sounds we may therefore trust him. Turning to Mr and Mrs Har- ding he wished them happiness and prosperity, and said, 441 will conclude my remarks with two sentiments from Shakespeare. The first is:- 4 Let grief and sorrow still embrace his heart, Who doth not wish you joy;' And the second is — Fair thoughts and happy hours attend on you. Mr H. T. Roberts was then called upon to make the representation on behalf of Mr Hardiug's Sunday School class. Mr Roberts said the class had decided upon offering agdiatinct present, for two reasons. One was to show the congregation how highly they valued the honour of having Mr Harding as a teacher; and the other to show Mr Harding how much he was appreciated as a guide and teacher. He (Mr Roberts) felt the hour spent in school to be to him the most devotional and truly religious part of the day. Unfortunately the articles to be pre- sented were not ready, so that only a formal pre- sentation could be made. In the name of the class he wished Mr and Mrs Harding loDg life and happiness. Mr Dargie and Mr L. F. Jones made remarks to the same effect. Messrs Williams, Lewis, Thomas, and ethers made similar remarks. Mr Harding, responding, said that he did not feel in a position to say much, and that anything he could say would be inadequate t? express his feeling. He felt very grateful for all the kind wishes of his friends. As regarded the present from his class, he said he felt surprised that they should have made hita such a presentation, as he had no idea they appreciated his endeavours so much. Mr liarding concluded by saying that he and his wife would in the future try to bo as useful as possible in connection with the chapel work. The evening's entertainment was brought to a close by the ex. hibition of a shauow show, very cleverly carried out. 01

COLWYN BAY. COLWYN AND COLWYN BAY GAS IhLL. -On Monday evening last a large and influential meeting of ratepayers was held at St. Paul's Schoolroom, to consider the advisability of petitioning Parliament to reject the above bill. The Rev J. Wild took the chair, and amongst those present were the Revs W. Venables Wil- liams, J. D. Jones, Dr Waddy, Messrs Chas. Frost (Min-y-don), J. Porter (Pwll-y-crochan Hotel), Dr Shaw, H. L. Riley (solicitor, St. Helens), &c. The chairman stated that the meeting had been called for the purpose of checking an attempt that was being made to carry the above bill through the House of Lords, which would enable the promoters to erect gas works in a place which would prove ruinous to the interests of Colwyn Bay. He also stated that the promoters were strangers, which was proved by the fact that they actuall; selected a site for the gas works in the midst of the best building land in Colwyn Bay. At the suggestion of the .1iev Dr Waddy a petition was read and explained, and on the proposition of the Rev J. D. Jones, seconded by Dr Waddy, it was resolved that this meeting should adopt tae petition which was already signed by nearly 300 householders and visitors at Colwyn Bay. A letter was read from Major Birch, agent to Sir G. A. Cayley, who stated that he joined heaitily in theobject of the meeting, andregrettedheoouldnot be present to s'ga the petition. A letter was also read from the secretary of the Colwyn Bay and Pwll-y-crochan Estate Company, expressing their entire disapproval of the scheme as proposed by the bill. Several persons who had not signed the petition did so at the close of the meeting. On the proposition of Mr Allen, seconded by Dr Shaw, a vote of thanks was accorded to the chairman. Our readers will understand that there are two companies at present seeking to obtain powers to erect gas works, one o! which is promoted by persons strangers to Colwyn Bay and neighbour- hood, and in opposition to which the above meeting was called. The other company-which is composed of genthmen residents of Colwyn Bay and locally interested, has been incorporated under the Companies Acts, and has applied and obtained a provisional order from the Board of Trade, which is now waiting confirmation by Par- liament. This last company proposed to erect gas woiks some distance from Colwyn Bay, and which would not in any way injure private pro- perty, such, as it is alleged, the proposed site of the foreign company would do. CONWAY. PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY.—The fifth practice of this society was held in the Boys' Schoolroom on Thursday evening, the 21st. instant. Tne attendance was, as usual, very good, and at the close of the practice the skilful trainer, Dr Roland Rogers, acknowledged himself to be quite satisfied with the work done so far. The fact that the society have gone through the selected pi('.ce-Macfanen's "May Day"—will show the creditable way in which both trainer and members have persevered since the commence- ment of the society. The Dr selected a new piece —Barnby's 44 Sweet and Low"—to be sung at the close of the meeting. Each vocalist was supplied with a card of membership containing the rules, which have been drawn out by the committee. BOARD OF GUARDIANS -The fortnightly meeting of this board was held at the Workhouse on Friday last. The following gentlemen were present: —Messrs Thomas Parry (in the chair), J. Davies, A. Borthwick, W. J. Jones, D. Phillips, B. R. Daines, A. Foulkes, E. Morris, and the Rev D. Bankes Price. Paupers' JAfter the minutes had been read and confirmed, the chairman suggested that the resolutien of Mr E. Jones respecting the above should be deferred until next meeting, as Mr Venables Williams and Mr Jones were absent.- The Rev D. Bankes Price I think it would be advisable, too, to let this subject be deferred, as the parti s chiefly concerned in the affair are not here.—Mr Borthwick (to the assistant clerk): Will you please read the resolution which was passed at the last meeting touching on this subject ?-The clerk read the resolution as follows Oll the proposition of Mr Edward Jonep, seconded by the Rev W. Venables Williams, it was resolved that the rent paid by permanent paupers should not ex- ceed 3s per week, and that the present paupers do not come under the rule without three months notice, the rule not to apply to persons seeking temporary relief."—The clerk said it was also p:o. posed bv Mr Foulkes, and carried, If That the re- lieving office-s should be requested to ascertain the amount of rent paid by the paupers in the several parishes in their respective districts, and to report thereon at this meeting."—Mr Borthwick asked if the relieving officers had ascertained the amounts. -The clerk said they had, and called Mr Jesse Jones, the relieving officer, who had in his report book the rents each pauper paid.—Mr Borthwick: Have you a written statement with an average of rents paid P—Mr Jesie Jones said he had no other report but what was in his book.—Mi Borthwick: Perhaps you will make an avenge of them, it will not take you very long time.—Mr Jesse Jones Yery^well.—Mr Daines-called atten- tion to the absence of the chairman, and the clerks who were not acting very courteously to tbe rest of the guardians, assuming, of course, that they were not present owing to any engagement con- nected with the board. He begged to propose that no action be taken with respect to rentals, and that the guardians should continue to exercise their own discretion in fixing the amount of relief. —Mr Phillips seconded this proposition. — Mr Bankes-Price suggested that thequestion should be deferred until the chairman was present.—Mr Borthwick proposed that the relieving officers be again instructed to go over their books, and pro- duce this day fortnight a written report of the dif- ferent rentals in their various parishes, and which was seconded by the Rev D. Banks Price.—After some discussion it was requested that Mr Daines should withdraw his proposition.—Mr Daines: What do you say, Mr Phillips ?—Mr Phillips: Well, I don't know indeed.—Mr Borthwick: Well. I suppose, Mr Daines, you'would not care to be vic- torious with your proposition in the absence of the chief move s of the other resolution.—Mr Daines then withdrew his proposition. A L'andudno Pauper. Renry Edwards, of Llan- dudno, an inmate of this house, was, on the pro- position of Mr Borthwick, requested to leave the house, and his family were ordered to coutribute a weekly sum towards his maintenance.

Davies, Penmaenmawr, were considered, and the officers were ordered to summons several p irties for non- attendance of their children at school.

FEARFUL QUARRY ACCIDENT I ¡ AT TAL-Y-SARN, I FIVE MEN KILLED AND FIVE INJURED. About 11 o'clock on Wednesday morning, some men in the employ of the South Dorothea Slate Company, Nantlle, were engaged in blasting J operations. Having 'charged the hole the usual warning was given, and the men working below sheltered in a strongly-built hut [provided for the purpose, about 40 of them crowding into the small area. The exploding charge was about 51bs. of gunpowder, and the^'positioa ,of the piece of rock being blasted was about 50 feet above the hut and about 40 yards distant from it. When the ex- plosion occurred a mass of rock about 5 tons in.weight was thrown across the intefvening space. and descended with fearful force upon the roof of the hut in which the men were packed Three of them were killed outright, and five of them injured, two of them so severely that they died in three or four hotirs after. Hundreds of willing hdpers soon arrived and headed by Mr D. W. Davies, soujof the manager, in less than half- an-hour removedjthe last of the bodies ta a hut on the bank. The^names -.of the killed are as follows:—Peter Williams, eged 48, Tau-y- frwynan, leaves a wife and three children Robert Jones, 43, Gam Dolbenmaen, wife and children. Wiliiam Owen, 50, Tan-y-fynwent, wife and five children. The two following died in the after- nocn: Robert Owen, 23, Halfway-terrace, Tal-y-earn, wife and four children. Owen was insured in the Prudential for £ 21. Henry Hugh Roberts, 40, Pen-y-groes, wife and six children. The following are injured-the three first very severely:—Thomas Evars, 32, Carmel; John Williams, 48, Pant-y-celyn Robert Roberts, 50, T^l-y-sarn; John Pfitehard, O-vea William Owen. Dr Jones, of Tal-y-sarn, assisted by Dr Griffith, of the same place, were immediately on the spot, and did their:utmost for the sufferers, and' shortly after Dr Griffith, assistant to Dr Roberts, Pen-y-groes, arrived, materially aiding Dr Jones. Dr Jones regards the recovery of two o the men as veryMoubtfnI. The inquest will be held at Pea-y-groes to-day (Friday). Mr William Davies, manager of the quarry, has given zCG to the most needy of the sufferers, asd no doubt shortly a subscription will be opened in aid of the families so [suddenly de- prived of their bread winners. No accident of a similar nature has occurrel in the neighbourhood for twenty years past. The bodies ara terribly mangled, in one case a fragment of rock being driven through the stomach and protruding at the back. In another the right shoulder is entirely cut off, together with half of the skull, while the leg of another poo fellow from the knee upwards is a mass of pulpr and the head of yet another is completely cut off, and the upper part of the body of another is crushed into a mass of jelly.
LLANRWST. The contract of Mr Parry, of this town, has been accepted for the construction of the new railway station at Towyn, Abergele. The approximate amount is £ 10,000. DBSTBUCTIVH TRAMPS.-A t the petty sessions, held on Tuesday, two tramps hailing from Liver- pool, named Thomas Roach and John Wilson, were brought up in custody of Superintendent Hammond, and presented a very ludicrous appear- ance in court. They had been detained two days at the workhouse, and on the second morning it was found that they had cut uplall their clothing into little piece3, boots as well. They appeared in court attired in long sacks, their heads protruding from tbe top end and naked feet from the other, their arms not being visible. The bench committed them for ten days' hard labour.
PORTDINORWIC. DEPARTURE OF MR THOS. J. WJLLIAMS. — I would wish to draw the attention of Port- dinorwic residents to the fact that one who has devoted no inconsiderable amount of his time, and has always done his utmost with untiring zeal for thefbenefit of the village, intends, ere long, bidd- ing his friends adieu.; From his earliest connection with our village, he has spared neither time nor influence in his endeavours to further the develop- ment of the public good. It is unneceesary to enumerate his many good qualities, but perbap3 it would be appropriate to record here the loss which we slyll sustain during election times by II his acceptance of a position elsewhere. His loss will be the more keenly felt at a not very distant date, if, according to Conservative surmises, Parliamentary affairs are rapidly approaching a crisis which will result in the speedy dissolution of Parliament. Our memories become bright and clear at once when we think of the courage which he displayed at the general election, and the enthusiasm with which he inspired his friend, and party to sesnre the safe return of the Liberal candidate. With reference to his various good deeds, it is admitted that some of his efforts have proved fruitless. That does not detract from the genviaartis of hia intentions to any extent. The suggestion which one of his earliest pupils desires to make is, that some person or persons possessid of intluence and experience should earnestly take up the subject of presenting him with a fitting testimonial, worthy of the service which he has rendered the inhabitants of Portdinorwic. Let his neighbours show to his future co-residents the esteem in which he is held by them. I feel sure that those who have had any lengthened exper- ience of his admirable mode of teaching will have the greatest pleasure in co-operating with the promoters. It is to be hoped that a few of the foremost young men from the "Young Men's Society," in the proceedings of which society Mr T. J. Williams has played a prominent part, will discuss the matter, and finally direct the under. taking to a highly successful termination. CLr.
PORTDINORWIO NOTES. I notice that the roads are still in an unsatis- factory condition owing to management, which is anything but creditable. When will the autho- r.ties attend to this matter ? I see that they have commenced to do a little this week in the way of making a^small footpath and drain. What about the organist at Port Church ? Last Sunday the manipulator of the icstiument did not turn up, and the service would have fared badly had it not been for the kindness of Mrs Owen, the wife of the Scripture reader, taking her seat at the key board. She showed great judg- ment and good taste in the way she performed her part that Sunday. Here is a little drama in one act! Scene Port- dinorwic Railway Station. Time: 6.30 p.m. Saturday last.

I KNOW There is not the slightest There is not the slightest doubt that there is a pos- sibility of restoring and beautifying the Hair. The greatest chemists tell us so, and modern proof has been offered in many pre- parations. That there should be one of superior excellence among these may also be admitted, and the best test of that sur- passing excellence would be the lasting patronage received, and fame allowed, Mrs S. A. Allen's World's Hair-restorer. MRS S. A. ALLEN'S WORLD'S HAIK-RESTORER is acknowledged by all to be most efficacious for re- storing, invigorating, beau- tifying, and dressing the Hair, rendering it soft, silky, and glossy, and dis- posing it to remain in any desired position, quickly cleansing the Scalp, remov- ing DanrufF, arresting the fall, and imparting a healthy and natural colour to the Hair.
