i—.1'Wt-W COMMON SENSE. TO people who are in the habit of thinking for themselves it is quite evident that in order to keep the constitution in health, thefir*t and moot important thing to be attended to is that the appetite is good and the body strong. If tho system is weal it is then naturally open to disease, and experience has alreidy proved that whatever part of the system is weakest that very part is most susceptible to Colds and their attendant inconveniences. In order to fortify the system and brace it up, we must resort to Tonics, and we can confidently find conscientiously recommend a preparation which is steadily and quietly gaining a firm footing in almost every household in the kingdom. We find it necessary to mention that this preparation differs from many now offered to the public. Many of the preparations now offered are worse than worthless, inasmuch as they are calculated to deceive; but we are happy to state that this mixture fcWbecn proved beyond all doubt to be a genuine invention. We advise a careful perusal of the following. Its name signifies its contents:- T mm mim OUlNINE BUMS, OR VEGETABLE TONIC. This preparation contains Quinine and the ".ssence or active principles of Sarsaparilla, Saffron Lavender, Dandelion, Gentiau, and Burdock, mixed in happy preparations. If, has one great advantage, viz., the entire approval and confidence of the leading members of the medical pro- £ ;s;ion.' Quinine Bitters assist digestion, promote and facilitate circulation, strengthen the nerves p.nd mn'iclcs, and purify the blood. Patients who have suffered long and suffered severely, con- t:.nualiy bear testimony to tilcir remedial effects. Specially adapted for all diseases arising from a nervous state of the system, such as palpitations, tremblings, flushing of blood to the face, nervous indigestion, low spirits, undue anxiety, neuralgic and nerve pains generally; also indi- rection in its different forms, such as pains in the stomach, cramp, frequent sighing, sense of ful- ness and oppression, relieved by taking food, or a feeling oflangour and oppression, drowsiness, and flvinw pains in the region of the heart. In short, this preparation (the Quinine Bitters) is a general toni<f and blood tmrifier, strengthening that part of the system which is weakest, and therefore most liable to Corns and their consequences Sold in 23 Gd and 4s 6d Bottles by all the principal Chein.s "Theale, near Reading, 11th May, 1877.

THE COUNCIL OF HIE NOTXTII WALES COLLEGF. *r • None, wo presume, will be so bold as to ac- cuse us of any remarkable Cjcservative leaning in politics and matters of public interest; yet we arc compelled to admit, after looking over the council of Bangor College, that it would augur more favourable for the future usefulness and the general stability of the college if the Liberal majority in the court of "governors had shown a little magnanimity. There are two, if not more, hypothesis upon which we may be able to account for the almost total exclusion of the Conservative element from the council, vix., the fear that pervaded the Liberal and Nonconformist ranks that they were, in some mysterious way, going to bo ousted by their antagonists whence consequently it may be assured that the Liberals in the court of gover- nors thought more of avoiding defeat or of gaining victory than of exercising a magnani- mous moderation. The [second hypothesis on which the defeat of the Conservatives may be accounted for is the operation of a sentiment of retaliation, or, to express it more mildly, a re-action caused by the unwise tactics of the Conservatives themselves, fnd especially by the absurd onslaught by the Rev. Dean of Bangor upon tho parties who fo-med the bulk of the court of governors. Having sown the wind" it is only iair that the Dean and his partisans should reap the whirl- wind," and few will grudge him the plentiful harvest, could he but enjoy it without directly or indirectly injuring the prospects of the college. Noverth eless, to say that the Con- servatives fully deserved their discomfiture, will not acquit the majority of want of self- control, sdlf-reliance, and self-denial. No doubt cap, be entertaine d that a certain amount of "self "evinced itself in the choice of the council. Possibly it m ay be slid that the Conservatives, as matters now stand, are fairly represented in a numerical point of view bat will anyone venture to affirm that the conduct of the majority was politic, much less con- ciliating ? It required no large amount of reasoning power or clear vision for anyone knowing any- thing of the sectarian composition of our Welsh communities to foresee, from the first, that the selection of the highest governing body would be carried out to a great extent on sec- tarian considerations, and upon no higher plane, in most cases, than a merely sectarian one. It was a compliment to th3 soefc to which the vice-president and the treasurer belong that they were S3 unanimously voted 13 their respective offices; but aftsr the bestowal of so sigaal an honour upon that denomination, the least that could be expected from it was that it should manifest a less eagerness to place so large—excessively large—number of its friends amoDgst the council mea at the cost of ex- cluding othars. A train of thought pursuod by Froude occurs to us as being particularly relevant Jn the present case. He writes "Where all are selfish, the si ge is no better I than the fool,and only rather more dangerous." Selfishness in rnblic matters is suicidal ia tha long run. It is more than a mistake that whilst one denomination has two principals of colleges amongst the chosen, another almost equally important denomination should not be favoured with a single seat in the council for its principals. The exclusion of Professor Lewis, B.A., is 'sufficient t; stigmatize so conspicuous a neglect. Seeing that the 0 a removal of Llangollen Baptist College to Ban- gor, to the vicinity of the North Wales College, a is already a matter of discussion aiaonj that body, the appointing of Professor G. Da vies, 0 the principal of that: college, to the council was felicitous and opportune and all will hail the election of the veteran Principal Edwards, D.D., Bala, as one of the thirty-oue council- men; but how are we to account for the cold neglect manifested towards the only remaining Nonconformist body in North Wales that could have provide I a learnol Professor for a seat in the North Wales College Council It is to be "hoped that the dawn of a wiser day is about to break on the promoters of thf; college than has hitherto cast its gleam up )n their minds. The unabating enthusiasm of the public and the vile-spread interest in the collego deserve the utmosb devotion, sagacity and foresight of all who arc engaged in founding and setting up the institution. Their responsibility is too great, tbe opportunity for a great national service too golden, and the issues too momentous for the future of the Wo'sh [nation to be used by sectarians for sectarian ends and mercenary purposes.
IT V' THE POLITICAL SITUATION IS DENBIGHSHIRE. It may safely be assumed that throughout the laud a distinct, if secret, conation exists that He long the Government will appeal to th •"un'ry for confirmation or ccndeiaraticn o f ts past, present, and proposed future policy. It is not supposed that the Government will da tin* except as the result of an adverse vote bj the Lords on the County Franchise, or Repre- sentation of the Pfople Bill, which Mr Glad-* stone introduced on Thursday evening to tho House of Commons, but the spteches and con- duct of the Leader of the Oppositions and the smaller fry who seek after fame, but only attain notoriety by reckless and indiscriminate abuse and obstruction of anything and! everything brought forward by the Government, have al- ready confirmed tho electors in their suspicion that the House ox Lords will attempt t>thwart this a&t of justice to the people by throwing out the bill introduced by Mr Gladstone for the pur- pose of enfranchising 3,000,000 of our fellow- e)untrymen who, for no discoverable reason, are at present disfranchised. As in the nature of things, the crisis cannot be long postponed, it a "P is by no means an idle precaution to look to our arms and prepare for the struggle at once, even though a formal and unequivocal declaration of war on this point has not yet been made. The return at Brighton of Mr Marriott, an open and professed seceder from the Liberal ranks, by a majority of 1100, might very well be sup- posed, and is by unscrupulous Tory agents de- clared to be a distinct and emphatic sign of the general repudiation by the nation of the policy of the present Government, and believing this, the Constitutional Party, as it is never tired of calling itself, will, doubtless, have its heart hardened, and precipitate a conflict with the Government on the question of the County Franchise, which will at once raise the whole issue afresh, but this time it will not be left to Brighton alone to express an cpinion in the matter, but the whole kingdom will be ap- pealed to, and G10 constituencies, consisting of upwards of three millions of voters, will be asked to say whether at the bidding of men like Lord Salisbury three millions of their fellow-countrymen are to be kept from their rights as citizens and ratepayers. We venture to assert that t he:feeling that in case of an ap- peal to the people a largo Liberal majority will be returned to power is as general as the feel- ing that such an appeal will be made, and that it is founded on solid grounds. This feeling is general throughout the kingdom, but nowhere is it more intense than in the Principality. Here we are eager for the fray, eager to show that ve are untainted with Toryism, that we are heart and soul Liberals and Radicals, and here the general feeling iff, as even Tories thomselves admit, that the lakrt of the Tory M P': must.and shall rethrown out of Parliament at the next election, leaving to Wales the task of doing that which no other division of the Ux ited Kingdom has yet done, that is of returning a Liberal member for every constituency within her borders. Here, in Denbighshire, this feeling is perhaps more intense than in any ether Welsh county. Mr Osborne Morgan, the Judge Advocate General, has proved himself such a sterling representa- tive of the county, and such a thorough and consistent supporter of the principles of the electors who returned him in 1880, that an attack on his position is looked on by the Tories as a hopeless undertaking, and it is, we will venture to say, only the personal popularity of Sir W. W. W yune that secures to the Tories a moiety of county rcpicsentation, and that were the worthy Baronet from some cause to resign or vaca.to his "eat, no Tory would have the slightest chance against a good Liberal candidate. In the case of the Denbigh Boroughs, the state of political faeliDg is, if anything, more favour- able to the Liberal cause thsn in the county, Sir R. A. Cunliffe having endmred himself to the electors by his personal qualities, and com- mended himself to their judgmett by his consis- teat an I unswerving support of that Govern- ment, for whose support the electors returned him four-years ago. Sir Robert has not thrust himself forward as a speaker in the House, but in these day? of obstruction and empty, time- wasting verbosity, mere speech-making is not a virtue, and by sensible constituencies is not desired in their representatives. Altogether we may regard the coming of the threatened Tory storm with great equanimity. Indeed we think we shall be giving utterance to the sentiments of the groat majority of our readers by express- ing the hope that the House of Lords may be foolish enough to ba misguided by Lord Salis- bury into throwing out the Representation of the People Bill, and so force on an appeal to the people, which shall clearly answer the question whether the nation is to be ruled by its representatives or by an assembly of heredi- tary legislators, the majority of whom hava neither understanding of, nor sympathy with, our needs and desires. So far as Denbighshire and the Denbigh Boroughs are concerned, we may have not the slightest doubt of the result.
Wa arc glad to notice that by the strenu0118 efForh-of CoumlUor'W.A Dew, and other gentle- mou ot the I!m;jnr City Council, the attempted indecently hurried election of a borough accountant his been deferred till the next 1'ieeting of the council, thus giving Mr Bounces Jones an opportunity of placing his name on the list of candidates. The council seems to have lost its head in thia matter, and its a ition at the last and the previous meeting most certainly conveys the idea to outsidou that a coup is b^ing intended. Wiihouf; going so far as tc say that the council is legally bound by the decisions of its various committees, wo think that in this instance, a, any rate, there was at least a moral obligation to confirm the decision arrived nt by the ccmmitteo, Lv which Mr Jones was chosen to fill the olfice of borough, accountant. We propose to o inquiry info the truth of co tain allegations as tj ulterior motives for the opposition which Ms.
