MOLD. ROBIN DDU ERYRI.- We are informed that this veteran Welsh bard and historian is now on a tour through a portion of North Wales, and this being his farewell tour, as might be ex- pected, he is everywhere enthusiastically received. The respected gentleman, who is now approaching hia 84th year, and is in the etljoyment of perfect health, is engaged to lecture in English at the Tabernacle, Buckley, on the 4th proximo, and in Welsh at Mold on the previous evening. CHEAP TRAIN.—On Friday, the 4th proximo, a > cheap train wi 1 run from Mold and intermediate stations to Chester, returningthesame day at II p.m. lor the purpose of allowing passengers an opportu- nity of bearing Gilbert and Sullivan's new opera "Princess Ida" at the Royalty Theatre. As the return fare is less than half the ordinary price, many persons will doubtless be glad to avail them- selves of the opportunity. PHOTOGRAPHING.—Caddick, the renowned photo- grapher, is paying his annual visit to this town. The visit terminates on Good Friday. BroDY BROWN AGAIN !!—This well-known char- acter was charged at the County Hall on Monday last with being drunk and disorderly in her house in New-street, thereby disturbing the public in general aud her neighbours in particular. Being unable to pay the fine inflicted of £ 1 and costs, her ladyship was sent to Ruthin for 14 days, with hard labour. PLEASANT EVENING.—One of these series of en- tertainments will be held at the Westminster-road School-room next Monday evening. In addition to a variety of songs and other items, the pro- gramme will include a performance of a farce, en- titled "The Rehearsal," in which four ladies and five gentlemen will take part. We hope the meet- ing will be well attended, as it is some time since the last was held. THE WEATHER during the past week has been very seasonable and enjoyable. We have had bright sunshine in ^tho day time as well as fine evenings,if they have been somewhat cold. COMING or AGE OF MB P. TALTON .OAVIES COOKB--A. meeting, which was well attended, of the tenantry of the Gwysaney estate was held at "I the Dolphin Hotel last week for the purpose of considering the best means of celebrating the above event. A subscription list was opened, and up- wards of JE20 was promised at the meeting. The following were appoiuted as committee :-Messrs J. Lloyd, Anteiope (chairman), W. Evans, W. Williams, E, Price, W. G. Jones, and J. Mattiison, Mold; T. Ellis, Leeswood Hall; R. Davies, Soughton J. Davie?, Oreg, and W. Hewitt, Buck. ley J. Black well, Alcen E. Jones, Gwernaffield; Owen, Tyddyn.y.gwynt; and W. Roberts, Simddai Hir. Mr J. Corbell kindly consented to act as treasurer, and Mr Ernest A. Craft as secre- tary, and subscriptions will be gladly received by any of the gentlemen named above or at either of the banks. The presentation will probably take the form of a piece of silver plate—an illuminated address, and the event will be celebrated by sports, 4tc, in the town. VESTRY MBBTING.-The annual vestry meeting for the appointment of overseers and guardians of the poor for this parish, and for passing the ac- counts of the burial board was held last week at the vestry-ioom in the parish church-yard. Mr G. Roberts presided. The attendance of parish- ioners was very limited. Mr J• E. Davies proposed, and Mr John Rothwell seconded, that the retiri&g guardians, viz Messrs J. Corbett, E. r. Edwards, 15. Jonea, Gwernafleld; E. Jones, Bistree; — Griffiths, Pistyll, Nerquis; E. Peters, Leeswood, be re-elected, andthia was carried unanimously. í Mr John Hughes, Henffordd, and Mr W. Hockey, seconded that the retiring overseers, Messrs .&< ward Griffiths, grocer; Job Edwaids, confection- j er G. Taylor, Bryn-v-baal, and James Griffiths, Ty newydd, be re-elected, and this was also un* j I animously agreed to. The accounts of the burial board, and the report of the auditors (Messrs J. E. Davies, and-Haghes) were submitted by the clerk to the board (Mr J. R. Bothwell), and passed un- I animously. The meeting terminated with a vote of thanks to the chairman on the motion of Mr Mor- gan, seconded by Mr W. Dykinet, MOLD CYCLING CLUE.—This club is making satisfactory progress this year, a good number of members having already been enrolled. Mr J. Corbett, the respected vice president, has with his accustomed generosity presented the club with a handsome bugle, upon which is engraved a suit. able inscription. The firet meet of this season will take place place on Good Friday, when, weather permitting, the members will journey to. gether to Llangollen. an out which is certain to be enjoyable, if the elements above] are at all pro- pitious. The committe of the club are, we under- stand, using every endeavour to secure a track close to the town, to obviate the necessity of going elsewhere, and as this, if arranged, will be a special boon to all cyclists, persons interested in this popular recreation should assist the club in their endeavours to meet the requirements of local cyclists. The hon. secretary (Mr H. C. Earl) is arranging a number of meetd for the ssason, a list of which will shortly be published. INTERESTING TO YAGBANTS.—As will be seen by notices issued by Mr Peter Brown, the chief constable of Flintshire, the Berkshire system came into force in North Wales on Tuesday last (Lady Da7). The wayfarer receives a ticket from the assistant relieving officer of the union, where he passes the night, and this ticket ensures him a good ration of bread at a certain place on the road he wi!l travel the next day. All excuse for begging being thus done away with, the public are earnestly request ad not to give food or money to beggars, as by so doing they only encourage idle vagabonds, and thus cause an increase of crime as well as of rates. All destitute persons passing through the North Wales counties are provided for by night at the workhouses, and by day foed is administered under the directions of the police at Mold, Connah's Quay, and Overton, and tramps or beggars should be referred to the nearest police constable. CHURCH OF ENGLAND TEMPERANCE SOCIETY.— At the Town Hall, on the 1st proximo, a public meeting will be held under the auspices of the above society, when the chair will be occupied by MrP.A.Lloyd,Pentrehobin. The following speakers are announced-Oltnka A spin all, Esq., Coroner of Liverpool; the Rev H. B. Bltogg, Vicar ot Frods. ham the Rev Morgan Rees, Rector of Llangwy. fan, and other gentlemen. Temperance songs will be sung by a choir composed of members of the band of hope. EXCHANGE OF PULPITS.—On Sunday last the Rev Thomas Roberts, independent minister, occu- pied the pulpit of the Calvinistic Methodist Chbpel, and the Rev Roger Edwards, the minister of that chapel, preached at Bethel Independent Chapel. In his discourse on Sunday morning the Rev T. Roberts referred to the revival services recently held in that place of worship (full particulars of which appeared in cur columns), and to the great good which bad resulted from the visit of the -Itev Richard Owen to this district. These good results were, the preacher remarked, only to be accounted for by the fact that the people had fervently and faithfully prayed that they might come to pass, and they had prayed in the full belief that their supplications would be granted. Theie was prayer and expectation, these were the secret of the abun- dant outpouring of the Holy Ghost which had taken place, and every religious revival had re- sulted from the same cause. The rev gentleman dwelt upon the vast amount of ungodliness which exists in our midst in various forms, and exhorted his hearers to continue in earnest prayer to Al- mighty God that He might be pleased to send a more abundaat outpouring of His Holy Spirit in our miasc so that those who are at present in- different as to their spiritual condition may be brought to repent their sin and seek salvation. The preacher urged upon his hearers the necessity of constant prayer to Almighty God for the fulfil- ment of His promises concerning the salvation of mankind We believe the exchange of pulpits on Sunday was appreciated by both congregations, and we do not see why it should be confined to two denominations. The more and the oftener it takes place the better. THE CLOSING OF THE SHOPS.—Next week a number oi shops which are closed during the winter months at seven o'clock will be open an hour later each evening, and this rule will be in force throughout the summer. Seeing that the shops are at present open eleven hours-and on Saturday fourteen hours—ordinary people do not see the reason why the assistant should have to work another hour, and we have heard the question Bsked several times, but have on no occasion heard any satisfactory answer. It cannot be on account of the briskness of trade in our midst, at any rate we should think not, for we are told the tradesmen who are unwilling to close their shops early complain that there is "no trade in the town." We have heard many of them cry their Jeremiads loudly, and it has occurred to us that if there is no trade doing some of the shops might as well be closed; at any rate, eleven hours would be quite long enough to keep them open. It appears there is a good deal of oinconsiatenay somewhere, and the poor assistants have to suffer from it. THE SALVATION ABMY.—It is stated that unless this movement revives in our midst during the next few weeks the "officers" will be removed rom Mold. The nightly procession now numbers about a dozen persons, and many people in town are surprised that the army here has not entirely collapsed long since. MOLD NOTES. I regret that a few printers' errors occurred in my" Notes" of last week, which I fear must have made the grammatical sense of one or two of my paragraphs almost unintelligible. Whether it was the fault of the compositor, or whether I am to blame that my copy was not sufficiently plain, I cannot say. If the lattsr, I must crave your forgiveness, Mr Editor,and also that of my readers. With in Jack Evans's letter should have been "urth" (earth), whilst "masher" in another paragraph was printed master." DENBIGH 1. MOLD.—As will be seen from the football columns this week, a match was played here between these teams on Saturday last. Though resulting (according to the decision of the referee) in a draw, one goal each, I am decidedly of opinion that the visitors exhibited the best play. [ I was reallv glad to find a total absence of disputes during the game, and above all, of the bad language complained of in these columns last week. The spectators, too, behaved in a manner befitting persons in the enjoyment of witnessing a real old English game.

Temperance Hotel at Ruthin, where it is to be hoped a sojourn of 14 days will have a beneficial effect. A few weeks ago, the Salvation Army seamed to have greatly increased, but, from some cause or other, the numbers have ^dwindled, so that there are scarcely a dozen persons in their nightly pro- cession. It is currently reported that the "powers that be- amongst them contemplate closing barracks in this town shortly? unless their "talents" are better appreciated by the Moldavians. Instead of singing as was their wont in the major key, the Salvation Army's goiue Up Up Up!" they (had better sing iiw: refrain in the minor key," tfce Salvation Army's going down down down What a loss (?) it will be to the inhabitants generally should this be the case, and how they will mies the melodious voices of some of the non-commissioned officers. • During the past week, the Dolphin field (or as it is better known, Coelia Moch"), to the delight of the youthful portion of the population (and if the crowds that have assembled there each night represent in any way the feelings of the adult portion, what tends to their amusement also), has been the scene of a regular "variety fair." A f well M the hobby horses and swing boats, I noticed various modes of rifle practice, ball and I ring throwing, &c &c., together with a number of shows," the latter, of course, being of the I imitated by many, but equalled by none" I description. The bright light of the numerous I I lamps gives the place quite a lively appearance, whilst the din of one or two organs playing at the same time, impresses one with the idea taat they mean business. QUILLB PBNNB. MOLD JOTTINGS. I hear that the same company which performed so successfully at the Town Hall on Shrove Tuesday will, at the request of the Rev J. M. Evans, shortly hold a similar entertainment at Bistree in aid of the National Schools Fund. Friday evening last, at tho Pioneer Lodge of Good Templars was as pleasant an evening as one could have wished to spend. Two persons were initiated and three more proposed for membership. The business of the session having been tran- sacted, the remainder of the evening was spent in a convivial manner with songs, recitations, and readings. The subject of the vicar's sermon on Sunday evening last was the strength necessary in waging war against the spiritual enemies-the world, the flesh, and the devil. The usual intercessory ser- vice was held at 8 p.m. THE SCHOOLMASTER FROM HOME."—Whilst walking in the vicinity of Wrexham-street I came across the following notice conspicuously posted:—
NOTICE TO ALL THAT KBEP FOWLES If they are not kepad of these premesis croft and gardens the owners wil have to stand the conse- quents all tres3pessers will be prosecuted. By Order (A. B ) and Agent." QUILLB PBNNE. RUTHIN. DRAMATIC PERFORMANCE.—On Tuesday evening last the Ruthin Amateur Dramatic Company gave a performance in the assembly-rooms, under the distinguished patronage of Mr West, Mr Jesse, Sir Sobert Cnnliffe, &c. The pieces acted were D&ng Binting" (a farce) and "Dick Turpin and Tom King." The characters in the first piece were as follows:—Professor Pankey, an itinerant lectarer; Alderman Podge, a retired tallow chandler; Dollop, a fat butler; Lavender, a young surgeon in love with Mias Patty; Policemen A and B Miss Fatima Podge, sister to Alderman Podge and Miss Patty Podge, daughter of Alder. man Podge. In the second piece the following was the castSquire Watson, Mr J. E. Jones Squire Whimsy, Mr B. Bryan; Dick Turpin, Mr A. Lloyd Tom King, Mr W. P. Owen Adolphus Fitzfroyle, Mr R. J. Joyce; Jacky Gorsegreen, Mr W. Davies Swicum, Mr J. Davies; Mary Wat- son, Mi-s Maggie Jones; Betty Slinkins, Miss Olive Ellis. The Buthin String Band played during the evening, Mr J. H. Hughes being the stage, manager. DENBIGHSHIRE AND FLINTSHIRE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.—A meeting of the general committse was held at the Castle Hotel on Friday last, for the purpose of appointing judges, a local committed, and the day to hold the annual show, as well as to take into consideration notices given as to the alterations in premiums, &c. The chair was occu- pied by J. F. Jesse, Esq., Bathafarn Park, president, and there were also present: Mr T. Jenkins, Plas-y-ward; Mr Keltet, Plas Newydd, Ruthin; Mr Thomas Smith, Plas-yn-llan, Ruthin; Mr Thomas Jones, Rhyd-y-cilgwyn, Ruthin; Mr W. Davies, Llysfapi, Ruthin; Mr W. Edwards, Crown Vaults, Ruthin; J. S. Banks, Esq., Sough- ton Hall; Mr T. Ollis, Mold; Mr Corbett, Mold Mr John Roberts, Saltney Mr G. Jones, Mold; Mr Jones, ironmonger, Mold; Mr H. V. William- son, Derwen Hall, Ruthin, and Mr G. Bellis, secretary. The circular convening the meeting and the minutes of the last meeting having been read, the business of appointing judges for the various classes was proceeded with. As it is not certain that all of these gentlemen will consent to act, it was considered desirable that no publicity should be given to their names at the present time. It way unanimously resolved that the annual show should be held on August 5th, and that those members of the general committee from Ruthin district should form a local committee, with power to add to their number. Notices.—Agreeably with a notice previously given, Mr J. Roberts, Saltney, proposed that Rule I. be more clearly defined. The rule was as fol- lows:—"That the society shall be entitled the Denbighshire and Flintshire Agricultural Society/' and that the district shall comprise the whole of the counties of Denbigh and Flint." He thought the rule a very vague one, and in his opinion there should be added to it some words to guard against persons competing, a small fraction of whose farms might be situated in one of the counties.-M.. Bowdage was of opinion that no person should be allowed to compete unless he had at least 35 acres in one of the counties.—Mr Scott Banks said they could not very well alter the rule, and he would suggest to Mr Roberts that when they would come lower down to have words added to the effect that no person be allowed to compete unless he have two. thirds of his farm in one of the counties.—Mr T. Jenkins asked whether it would not be well to strike out the words, the whole of." He thought them quite unnecessary, and in his opinion it would be desirable to add words to the effect, the whole of those farms shall be situated in those counties."—Some further remarks were made, and ultimately Mr S. Banks's suggestion was adopted by Mr Roberts. Farm Premiums.—The next notice Mr Roberts had was one to reduce the farm prizes. He said he considered these prizes much too high. He had no bias whatever in the matter, and he might add that he thought of trying for the prize this year, so that nothing but a sense of duty induced him to bring the question forward. He believed they were going down hill as regards finance, in which statement he was sure the secretary would bear him out.—Mr Bellis said it was a fact that they had once f600 in the bank, and that the balance was now reduced to £ 300. He might also add that if the same prizes be given this year as were given last year, there would be a deficiency of about £ 100.—Mr S. Banks was of opinion if they reduced too many prizes subscriptions would be withdrawn in consequence, so that if they gained in one way they would loose in another. He did not think they had much ground of complaint so far as regards finance. Mr Bellis had stated that their balance of JE600 had been reduced to £ 300, but that was very different from having a defi- ciency. He would suggest that this question of reducing prizes be left until their surp ua had turned into a deficiency.-Mr Kellet thought it the most important premium, and in his opinion the pnze was not too high.-After some words from Mr f Jenkins, who suggested that the prizes N08. 7, 8, aild 9 be reduced to JElO, JE5, and £ 3, Mr Roberts withdrew his motion, and the matter dropped.—Other amendments, of which Mr Roberts had given notice, were that the words "as in premium 11" be added after premiums 17, 18. 19, and 20," and "that premiums 55 and 56 be for draught as well as agricultural horses." Both amendments were agreed to. Prize for Grass Seeds.—Mr Thomas Smith, Plas-yn-llan, proposed that a prize of £5 be given for the beat grass seeds of the first year's growth on farms of 130 statue acres and upwards.—Mr Thomas Jenkins said that a similar prize had been inserted in the lists several times,and ts often taken off again. Personally he was not favourable to a prize, for there was a great deal of expense incurred, on account of the judges having to cover the ground.—Mr Smith withdrew his motion as well as another which stood in his name to, the effect that a prize of £4 be given for the best grass seeds of the first year's growth on farms not less than 30 and not more than 130 acres in extent. Prizes for Dairy Farms.-Mr A. Balfour, Mount Alyn, Rossett, had given notice to move that the wording of the special prizes given by bim should 1 he as follows:—" For the best arranged and most f successfully managed dairy on a farm not less I than 50 and not more than 150 acres in extent, I £10. For the second best, do., £ 5. Mr Balfour I was not present, but the motion was agreed to in I his abeence. Notices of motion had also been given by Mr J. Roberts, Geinas, and Mr G. B. Tant, Penbedw Gardens, Nannerch, but both I were absent, and the motions fell through. The Annual Show for 1885.-0n the motion of Mr J. Corbett, it was unanimously resolved that I the annual show of the society for 1885 be held at Mold. PETTY SESSIONS, MONDAY.-Before Rev The Warden, Dr Jenkins, and Captain Cole. Trespassing in Pursuit of Conies John Jones and Hugh Evans, Saith Dafarn Farm, Llandegla, were charged %by Edward Lewis, gamekeeper, with trespassing in pursuit of conies on land belonging to Sir William Granville Williams, on February 28th. Both defendants pleaded not guilty. The informant said he and another person were watching the defendants on the day in question ferreting a hedge. Defendants said in defence that they were on land in occupation of their employer, but they failed to show his authority in writing and were each fined 2s and costs. Keeping a Dog without a Licen-e.-David Roberts, Pen-y-fron, Llanbedr, was charged by P.O. Thomas Thomas with keeping a dog without a licet: se.—The defendant said that when the con. stable came to him he went the day after to Ruthin, but after reaching the town found he had no money. He had since done away with the dog. -He was fined Is and costs. Drunk and Ditorderly.—Edward Griffiths, shoe- maker, Ruthin, was charged by P.O. Edward Ro- berts with being drunk and disorderly in Clwyd. street on March 18th.—The police constable said the defendant was abusing persons who passed be- cause they would not give him money. A long string of previous convictions for similar offences stood against him, and he was sent to prison for one calendar month with hard labour. Trespassing in Pursuit of Conies—Edward Jones, Lon.fawr, and William Roberts, Llanrhudd-street, were charged by John Hurst, gamekeeper to Mr West, Ruthin Castle, with trespassing in pursuit of conies on March lith in the parish of Llan- rhudd.-The informant said he was looking at the defendants ferretting a hedge in a field near Llan. fair-road. They had a ferret and three rabbits in their possession.—John Morris, a lad, said he saw the defendants going to a rabbit hole, but he did not see any rabbits or ferret.-Both defendants denied the charge and said they knew nothing about the ferret. Drunk and Disorderly.—John White, a stranger, was charged by Inspector Jones with being drunk and disorderly in Prior-street on March 21st, but as he had been in custody since the previous Friday he was discharged with a caution. Occasional License.—On the application of Mr Osbert Edwards, an occasional license was granted to eell licensed liquour from ten to six on the grounds of the sheep dog trials on Easter Monday. SOHOOL BOARD.—A special meeting of the board was held on Friday, presided over by Mr E. Roberts, chairman. The other members present were—Mr T. P. Roberts, Mr John Jones, Mr S. Owen, Rev J. Williams, and Rev J. F. Reece. Appointment of an Assistant Naster.-Thirteen applications for the post of assistant master were received, all of which, with the accompanied tes- timonials, were read by the clerk.-Rev J. F. Reece said the first question was whether it was necessary that the teacher should be a Welsh- man.-The Rev J. Williams said, provided that he knew English properly, it was highly desirable that he shouid be a Welshman.—Mr T. P. Roberts ex. pressed the same opinion, and said it was almost essential that he should know Welsh, for in some cases the child was unable to understand the teacher in English, at which time it was necessarily that the lesson should be explained to him in Welsh.-The Rev J. T. Reece proposed, and the Rev J. Williams seconded, that Mr J. Jones, of Llanidloes, should be appointed.-As an amend- ment, Mr J. Jones proposed, and Mr S. Owen seconded, Mr J. Roberts, Ffestiniog. For the original motion two voted, and for the amendment three, so the amendment was carried. Appointment of Attendance Officer.—On the motion of Mir J. Jones, seconded by the chairman, J. Lloyd, ex-police constable, was appointed school attendance officer, in the room of J. Rowlands, re- signed.
BEAUMARIS. CHILDREN a TEA. PARTY.—A grand tea party was given by Miss Williams, of this town, to the child- ren of the Congregational Sunday School, at her own residence, 54, Castle-street, on Wednesday, March 19th. At half-past four about eighty children sat down to their treat, which was greatly enjoyed by them. After tea various amusements were provided. The Congregationalists are greatly indebted to Miss Williams for the interest she always manifests in the welfare of the children. The young ladies of the Sunday School served at the tables. THB CALVINISTIC METHODISTS of this town will hold their "Oymanfa Chwarterol" on the 26th, 27tb, and 28th inst. IMPROVEMENTS.—The town council have widened the Green for the purpose of providing more ground for visitors to play Lawn Tennis. There is a rumour that they are going to let the pier. THB BOARD SCHOOL.—The scholars attending the school were examined on the 13th, 14th, and 15th inst. by Mr Watts and Mr Roberts, her Majesty's inspectors, and it is gratifying to find that they have obtained the highest enconiums from those gentlemen. The grant will teach £ 200. Mr O'Connor, head-master; Mrs O'Connor, head- mistress and Miss Williams, head. mistress of the Infant School, are to be congratulated on the success of their labours. TOWN COUNCIL.-At a meeting of his council held on Tuesday last, Col. Hampton Lewis (mayor) in the chair, a letter was read from Mr Craven, secretary of the Liverpool, Llandudno, and Welsh Coast Steamship Co. stating that only one steamer would be put on service until the beginning of summer. The company, he stated, wished to defer the increase of fares, notwithstanding they were very low, particularly when deductions were made for pier tolls, town dues, and other charges of that nature. He was therefore instructed to ask if any abatement could be made from the amount of £ 112 paid in 1882—3 for tolls and charges at the pier. The letter was referred to the pier committee.—Mr W. Hughes said that the closing of the Baren Hill pleasure-grounds had done the town much harm, and it was the wish of the tradesmen te have them re-opened. He stated that Llandudne, Rhyl, or Penmaenmawr had nothing to compare with these grounds, and if they remained closed, visitors would not be attracted to the town.—It was ultimately decided that a deputation, consisting of the mayor and other members of the council, should wait on Sir R. Williams-Bulkeley, Bart., and request him to allow the grounds to be opened.—The question of the Sunday Closing Act being extended to Eng- land was discussed. Alderman E. R. Thomas said that as regarded this part of the Principality Sun- day Closing was not a success, and poinied out the fact that there was more Sunday drinking in Beaumaris now than ever, as scores of persons crossed the ferry on Sunday merely for the pur- pose of getting drink:at Beaumaris. The petition in favour of the act being extended to England was laid on the table.

| PORTDINORWIO NOTES I should like to arouse the attention of the authorities who have the management of the-pro- posed waterworks at this place. I think it ia quite time that something was done in the matter, as it is now in a most unsatisfactory I state. Trenches have been opened, but it seems that sufficient water has not been found to supply the place, and the work, to all appearance, has been quite given up. I should like to know what the authotL^es really intend doing. that sufficient water has not been found to supply the place, and the work, to all appearance, has been qaite given up. I should like to know what the authotL^es really intend doing. I I was told by a casual acquaintance, the other day, what an improvement had been made by taking the toll-bars off the road, and he related the following anecdote in which a man who was returning from Carnarvon, not quite all right was concerned. I give it as an example of the rich. ness and variety of my friend's vocabulary. Fhst of all he said, what an improvement it was, and he said that the man was become from Carnarvon late at night, and he was not walk straight, be. couse he was be drunk, and he did come to the turnpike, and he was not find a way to go through for a long time, until he did find the cross bar, aad he was get in this, and was turn and turn around until he was be turn right back, and did go back again to Carnarvon, and he was be nearly home (Portdinorwic), when he did meet somebody that he was know, and he did go with them." I have pondered over this strange jumble for a con- siderable time, but I can make nothing of it. It may be good English. It may, but I doubt it. Uur little village has been rather quiet this week, the inhabitants having been mostly in Car- narvon, listening to the Rev John Evans, of Lon- don, consequently there is a dearth of news.

POKTMADOC. ENTERTAINMENT.—Dr Roberts, of this town, gave a treat to the school children and others of Festiniog and neighbourhood at the Town Hall, Blaenau Festiniog, on Thursday, the 3rd instant, bJ exhibiting his grand panorama, consisting of views of the late Egyptian War, Bombarament of Alexandria, The Charge at Tel.el kebir; North Wales, Llandudno to Blaenau Fe3tiniog, and various comic figures. At intervals a portion of the brass band played appropriate selections. Mr G. J. Williams, schoolmaster, acted as lecturer. The spacious hall was crowded, and the entertain- ment was very much enjoyed. SNOWDON-STREET MISSION SCHOOL.—The annual literary and competitive meeting in connection with this school was held on Tuesday evening, the 25th inst., at the schoolroom adjoining the Taber- nacle Chapel. The meeting was commenced by the singing of tne congregational tune Lons- dale," which was followed by various competitions in reading, reciting, singing, &c. Prizes were also awarded for drawing, writing, knitting, &c. Amongst those who were successful were the fol- lowing, viz., J. L. Arnold, B. G. and A. L. Page, Henry Williams, — Humphreys, Gwen Williams, and others. During the meeting songs were, sung by Misses A. Williams, Britannia Foundry E. A. Jones, Rebecca Roberts, and Annie Atnold. Mr John Roberts, Flour Mills, accompanied on the piano. The choir of the school, under the leader- ship of Mr W. M. Jones, county court office, also sang several glees. The chair was occupied by Mr H. J. Williams (Plenydd), who delivered a short address in Welsh, and conducted the proceedings in a very lively manner. Amongst those on the platform were the Rev J. J. Roberts (Iolo Caer- narfon), Mr R. Williams, Mr R. G. Humphreys (R. o Fadog), &c. After a hearty vote of thanks had been given to the chairman, the interesting meeting came to a close by the school choir sing- ing the anthem Moliant i'r Iesu." FIRE AT TRBMADOC -On Tuesday evening, as Mr Owen Jones, Glasfryn. Tremadoc, was return- ing to his house from his fields he discovered that a large stack of hay at the rear of his house was on fire. He immediately gave an alarm, and assistance was speedily rendered by the neigh- bours, but their efforts to subdue the fire were unavailing, and the whole of the stack and build- ing, together with a small stack close by, were comp!etely consumed.

POltTMADOC HORTICULTURAL Sxow.-A meeting of the committee of this now popular flower show was held on Tuesday evening, to revise the schedule of prizes for competition at the forthcoming show on the 1st of August nrxt, and to make the other necessary arrangements. Mr R. M Greaves, the president, occupied the chair, and there was a good attendance of the committee. The rules were carefully gone through, and a few alterations made, the piincipal being the throwing open of the gentlemen's gardeners class to the whole of North Wales, the limitation to the counties of Carnarvon, Merioneth, and Anglesey having ex- cluded gardeners from the neighbourhood of Llan- rwat and Machynlleth. Considerable discussion took place as to the prizes in Class C (for gentle- men's gardeners), and the desirability of offering the principal prize for a display for effect or for a given number of specimen plants; but considering the lack of competition for the prize during the last two years it was decided to offer the prizes of L4, JE3, and L2 for the best twenty specimen plants. The nurserymen's class, in which the competition has been but small, was limited to 24 cut roses and the other cut flowers included in the gardeners' class. Several other names were added to the committee, and instructions were given to have schedules printed and issued as soon as possible.

If OVER. CROWDING, DIRT, AND IM-f MORALITY" IN CARNARVON. SIB,—In the Bury and Norwich Post, of MamW- 4..1, (instant). I fiud the followirag remarks. penned by the London correspondent of that: respectable paper:— "The agitation promoted by Lord Salisbury*' upon the subject of housng of the poor is evidently taking deep root. One noticeable matter is that the commission, who are now at last? appointed, is not directed to confine its inquiries to "populous places," these words have been omitted from the instructions. The result will be, that the commission will be able to attack the large villages and the rural towns, in some of which over-crowding, with the consequent dirt and immorality, is even more prevalent than in the worst slums of the metropolis. To take instances, there are worse dens in Carnarvon than at the back of Drury-lane, and Winchester has many signts of filth and over-crowding, which would hardly ba matched .even by those in the neigh- bourhood of Regent street." Where or how this scribe obtained his informat'oa. respecting the sanitary state of Carnarvon, ia a puzzle to me; but every one acquainted with this Hnciett town must k-iow that it is untrue, and the charge wholly without foundation. The drainage, the water, and the housss are now in as perfect and as desirable a state as any other town of its size. I am awarp, there are some dens in Carnar- von, which ought to be looked after, and improved; but I have yet to hear that we are in a state to be scornfully mentioned as above, and made a bye- word by an annonymous scribbler, presumably drawing upon his fettile imagination for his facts. —Years respectfully March 28th, 1884.
