THE PROPOSED KEY/ BRANCH OP BAIL WAY TO LLANDINORWIC. DEPUTATION FROM BANGOR. On Friday evening last a meeting; was held at I the Deiniolen Board Schools to take into considera- I tion the desirability of having a new branch of -railway to connect that placa with either Carnar- von or Bangor. A deputation from the Bangor City Council attended to explain what that city was prepared to do in order to secure such a branch. The deputation consisted of Major Platt (the mayor of the city), Aldermen Richards and T. "Lewis, Councillors K. W'. Dcaglas, Josiah Hughes, and J. Evan Roberta, Messrs D. Camaron and H. Lloyd Jones, Mr W. Rdw.rd?, uiasmiryu, aau ¡I others, also attended as deputation from Rhiwlas. ( The chair was occupied by the Rev Richard Morgan.—Mr R. P. Eiiis moved the Irst resolu- tion, which was as follows" That this meeting pledges itself to use every legitimate effort to pro- mote the construction of a branch of railway to this neighbourhood."—The resolution was secon- ded by the Rev W. Ryle Davies, and carried.—Mr Henry Owen, Liverpool Souse, then proposed "That a request be made to the Londoa and North j Western Railway Company to construct such a I "branch."—Mr W. R. Jones seconded this resolu- tion, which was passed.—Mr W. Jones, Coed- helen House, then asked what assistance and guidance the deputation from Bangor could give in the matter of constructing the branch.- Aajor Platt, on behalf of the deputation, said: — Nlr Chiurman and Gentlemen,—You are, of course, aware that I attend here with some councillors' from the borough of Bangor in a public capacity, an the mayor of that place. Before T sopok as to what Bangor is prepared vo do, I may offer » few remarks as to the suitability of Bangor ns the place to run your railway into, in preference, per- haps, to the town of Carnarvon. I may say that I am interested !n both towns, but I look upon tbia tjueetion from a very broad point of view. I wish to benefit the people for whom the railway is to be of service, and I think that to be of real value it ought t) go and join the Bangor and Bethesda Line. Looking over the map the other day. I calculated that from the way the proposed line would probibly run, that the distance from Bangor There would be 71 miles. Now I take it that everybody travelling by train would wish to Ro, as a rule, towards Banger, for Obester and places in England. To get to fhese places via Carnarvon you would have to make a circuit of 16 £ miles. The lowest fare (3rd class) by this route would come to Is 4d, as against 7d the othar way, which would amount to a considerable sum in twelve months. Now if you effect such an enormous saving to your pockets by simply travelling, how much more it "would be when you consider the traffic in goods. You must have clothes, provisions, and other things, and they all come mostly by rail from the Erection of Chester. By the construction of the line to Bangor, the saving in twelve months would come to an enormous amount; not only money Baved by passengers, but also in freight. Another thing which I would point out as very im- portant is the fact that Bangor has lately f>een selected as the site for the college; -land as Bangor also, at the present time, possesses w very excellent school, there will be no doubt a -large number of young men going from this dis- trict to be educated in these two scholastic institu- tions, end it would be most desirable that they should be enabled to go by the r earest possible Toute. Another thing is that the London and North Western Railway Company have in view the continuation of the Bethesda line through Bet- iws-y-cced to Denbigh, putting you thus in com- TOunicatian with that part of the country, without going round by the way of Rhyl. You also have -many relatives and friends at Bethesda, and many quarrymen would wish to travel between here and there for social intercouse, if not for business. This line would give you every opportunity to get to Bethesda. It is contemplated by the Bangor City Council to carry out great and important im- provements in the town. I may say there are such important improvements contemplated in Bangor that will make that town the metropolis cf North Wales. It strikes me also that the very fact of Bangor Council throwing their influence to improve the fairs there, which, I am sorry to say, are at present not very good, and to establish a amithfield in the town—will enable you to get meat from there at far better prices than you pay at present. I have often heard it said that Oar- narvon has a much cheaper market than Bangor. The fact that Carnarvon transacts a deal of busi- ness requires them to keep in stock goods of a certain kind; but the Bangor tradesmen are alive to their own interests, and I believe if you connect your line with Bangor, you will find those goods as cheap and as good as in Carnarvon. You wish to know what assistance and instruction can we offer you, we shall be glad to form a deputation with you to wait upon the London and North Western R til- way Company, and to try and persuade them to construct a line. If the Landon and North Western Railway Company decline to construct this line it will become a rather serious question, for I take it that it must cost ;S26,000 to make this railway, and I am afraid that the neighbourhood here and at Bangor will not be rich enough to raise so large an amount; at the same time. should there be a com- pany formed, I have not the slightest doubt that the people of Bangor would take shares in the same. Alderman Lewis then gave in Welsh the essence of Major Platt's speech, after which Mr J. Evan Roberts addressed the meeting. Be thought that the line ought to be connected -with Bangor. About fifteen out of every twenty of the people who travelled by train from this district went in the direction of Bangor, to Chester and England. On that account he considered it vrould be a great saving of money and time to construct a line to connect the Bethesda Railway ) -with Bangor. That city was now becom'ng a very important educational centre, and the council of I the new college would probably follow the example of the Cardiff College by estavlishing classes in -difierent villages around the town. If Llandinor- wic were connected with Bangor by a railway.there would be reason to believe that a class would be formed in that place in connection with the col- lege.-Further remarks in favour of Bangor were made by Alderman Dr Richards and Mr Councillor Douglas, the latter gentleman's arguments in favour of Bangor beiag as follows:— Bangor, we all know, is a city, and according to a certain dictionary a city ought to llwe a mayor and corporation in addition to its being the see of the diocese. Bangor is the sec of tne diocese, and it has a mayor and corporation, so that, according to the definition I referred to, it is the only place in Wales which can boast of being a city. Al- though there is nothing in that, it is, after all, something to boptst of.—Mr W. Edwards, Glasin- frjn, having also spoken, Mr W. Ryle Davies pro. posed a vite of thanks to thtt deputation, which was warmly accorded. After a further vote of thanks to th? chairman for presiding the meeting I terminated.
VISIT OF TEE CARNARVON DEPUTATION. On Monday evening last, a meeting was held at tbe Deiniolen Schools to further „w»ke into con- sideration the question of railway connection be- tween the neighbourhood and one of the London and North Western lines. A deputation from the corporation of Carnarvon attended the meeting, and included tee mayor (Dr J. Williams;, and several members of the council, as well an other gentlemen, among whom were:—Messrs L. Lewis, JL Humphrey Owen, Dr Kirk, J. Pug\>- P. "Williams, J. Jones, druggist; Thomas Williams, Golden Goat; Pierce, do D. W. Davies, William Harries, J. 0. Jones, ironmonger; J. 0. Jones, wine merchant; W. J. Williams, accountant; Robert Williams, Bryn Alaw; Robert Williams, Brunswick Buildings; H. Harwood, David Mer- gan, Cadwaladx Williams, J. R. Pritchard, R. K- Williams, Richard Thomas, O. Morris, W. Jarrett Roberts, Rev E. Jones, &c. The meeting was presided over by the R?v R. Horgan, who also presided over the previous meet- ing held on Friday evening. The Rev D. 0. Davies p'oposed the first resolu- -tion which was as fal'ows —" Thct this meeting pledges itself to use every legitimate effort to pro- mote the construction of a branch of railway to this neighbourhood." Ho believed no one could oubt the necessity of having a railway from this I Ilace, the wonder was that they had waited so I ong. There was no other village of its size in 1 Wales without railway facilities. All the neigh- souring villages had railway connection, whilst I they were left without such facilities. If the I Carnarvon people were alive, they might secure Carnarvon people were alive, they might secure the railway for the town. But if they did not bestir themselves they would find that the line would be constructed to Bangor. If the Mayor of Carnarvon had walked that eveniac: to the meeting instead of being conveyed, he (the speaker) believed he would be prepared to cut the first sod of the new Carnarvon and Llaadinorwic branch railway.. Mr W. R. Jones, Caledffrwd-terrce, seconded the resolution, which was carried unanimously. MrThomaa Herbert then proposed the following resolution "That an application b3 made to the directors of the London and North Western Rail- wav Company, asking them to construct a branch to join this neighbourhood with one of their lines He (Mr Herbert) thought this movement had risen at a somewhat unfortunate time. If they had started such a scheme eight years ago, they might have raised some £ 10,000. The money of the neighbourhood was now invested in shipping speculations—some £ 60,000 being thus invested. Tho Bangor people had had a meeting in the neighbourhood, and had stated the avantagea of a connection with Bangor. They said that our young men would only have to go to the air of the new coliege to become first-class scholars. But he thought tne railway company preferred figures to such statements. He was certain th^t the town which would bring figures and statistics as argu- ments would win the railway (hear, hear, and cheers). At present some L3000 were paid for con veyance of goods from PontrhythalLt to Ll-n- dinorwic. Mr J. Smyrna J oneq seconded the resolution, which was passed with acclamation. Mr William Jones, Coed Helen House, then in- troduced the deputation from Carnarvon. He thought Llandinorwic would not have beep as backward as it is if they had had a railway connec- tion with the neighbourii-g towns. Also, if there was a railway to the place, Mr Apfiheton Smith might be induced to allow better leases to the workmen upon land for building "purposes. The speaker, having corrected a report which hai ap- appea-ed in a report of the previous meeting, which report had been printed at Bangor, asked what assistance and instruction the Carnarvon deputation could give upon the matter. Dr J. Williams (mayor of Carnarvon), said the corporation of Carnarvon were willing to assist the scheme for a railway. -He thought it was better, from an economical point of view, to make a branch to Pontrhythallt. If they made a branch to the Bethesda line it would be nearly three timea the length of the other. Besides, the landed proprietor, through whose land the Pontrhythallt branch would run, was very favourable to the line. On the other hand, the landed proprietor on the suggested alternative route would oppose the line to the utmost. An argument had been srged that the people wanted to go to Cheater, but it was not so. The tradesmen, perhaps, would prefer this connection, but the bulk of thL- people wanted a communication with a market town, and the best market town was Carnarvon. No one heard of the Carnarvon people buying butter at Bangor, out Bangor people did do so at Carnarvon. As to the question of education. Carnarvon WBS intended to be the site of one of the intermediate schools proposed to be erected. Farther, Carnarvon was the place where nearly all the great religious, social, and political meetings were held. Dr Kirk said the people in Liandinorwic were very wise in their generation in securing the people of Carnarvon and those of Bangor to com- pete for their favours. The Bangor people had told them that they were going to carry out im- mense improvements, and make it the metropolis of North Wale&, but the speaker thought they could not accomplish that. for Carnarvon was un- doubtedly the metropolis already, and would con- tinue so. Councillor Douglas, having perused his dictionary, had found that Bangor was a cor- porate city, and therefore a c'ty in the real sense of the word. But a railway of this sort was to ba decided not upon any dictionary terms, but on the solid basis of L s. d. Mr W. J. Williams then addressed the meeting. He thought; the people of the neighbourhood ought to make up their minds to which line-the Bethesda or the Llanberis one-they intended to connect their branch. The ordinary rule, how- ever, was to run railways along the rivers, and if so, they must construct a branch to Pontrhythallt. This line would only be one-half the length of the other, and therefore it could be constructed at half the cost. As to the educational far: iea of Bangor, he wished to remind them that this was I, not the chief thing they were constructing the railway for. He would not think much of a young man who refused,to go to collego because there was no railway direct to the college for him. As to the trade facilities, the speaker said Carnar- von offeied far greater facilities than Bangor. The fact that there was more trade competition in Carnarvon, than Bangor in itself showed that prices were lower at the former place. Carnarvon could also afford to sell cheaper than Bangor because they could get their goods delivered cheaper. Capt Stewart said he attended as Mr Assheton Smith's representative. Alter carefully consider- ing the matter, he has decided to throw in his lot with the interests of Carnarvon. He does so for various reasons. He believes Llandinorwic cannot be better served than by connecting it with the county town of Carnarvon. The distance to Pontrhythallt or Owm-y-glo is infinitely shorter than to Glasynfryn, on the Bangor and Bethe3da line, and the land of much leas value than in the valley of the Cegin. The construction of this railway will, therefore, cost much less, and the less the expenditure the greater the chance of dividends. If we can show, as he (Capt Stewart) certainly believed we could, that a line to Car. narvon afforded equal facilities to Bangor, and at the same time be shorter and more cheaply con- structed, he thought we made out a good case for Carnarvon. Then there was something even in old associations. From times immemorial the people of Llandinorwic were in the habit of doing their marketing, and other business, at Carnarvon. He thought they might go farther and fare worse. If they went to Bangor they would be joining new associations, new customers, new faces, all would be changed, and perhaps it could Dot be a change for the better. Then the geographical position of Dinorwic favoured Carnarvon. Just as naturally as the waters of Ebenczer and Olwt-y-bont find an outlet into the sea at Carnarvon, so should the trade and capital of that district find its way into the town of Carnarvon. Mr Assheton Smith will, therefore, grant every facility for a line to Pont- rhythallt or Cwm-y-glo, as may bo decided upon, and will oppose a line to Bangor. As to Mr Will- iam Jones's remarks about the shortness of quarry- men's leases, he (Capt Stewart) did not see what that subject had to do with the proposed railway. However, he might take that opportunity of ex- plaining that which Mr William J?L.PB referred to as 30 years leases, were not in reality leases at all. There was a clause in the yearly agreemei. ts in the estate securing compensation to tenants who built houses, and who did not occupy them for 30 years. If a tenant left his house after 20 years, he would be compensated for the residue of ten years. This is on the principle of 30 yeara* pur. ) chase. If any respectable quarry man wished to build on lease and produced plans and specifica- tions that would be approved of, a longer term than 30 years would readily be granted by Mr Assheton Smith, depending on the class of house built and amount of money expended. He was sorry the remarks of Mr William Jones necessitated this explanation. Mr R. Williams (Carnarvon) then addressed the meeting. He thought this line of railway wa3 not to be constructed bacause the people wanted to go to Liverpool and England, as said by the Bangor people. On the contrary, they wanted the branch line to connect the place with the best market town. The Bangor people made great capital out of the college. This was, after all, not much. The South Wales railway companies had made facility for conveying students for less than one-fourth the usual charges, and the North Wales lines would undoubtedly do the same thing. I Therefore the cost of travelling for educational purposes would not be much in any case. Mr I Williatns then went on to prove that Carnarvon j A was a more important industrial centre than Bangor, showing that Carnarvon was the most important commercial town in North Wales. The Rev E. Jones next spoke. The Bangor people gave three reasons for constructing the J line to their town. Ouc was the fact that 1 the children of the neighbourhood wanted l to be educated. The next was that the people of ■ Llandinorwig wanted to go by the express train to Chester, and the third that the flour would be Is persackcheaper. Hedidnot.tbink Dhelatterarguoien'^ I was a very weighty one, for thr.y said the convey- ance of goods to Caraarvou was quite as cheap, if not cheaper, than to Bangor. But the question j was to secure a railway, and he believed nature had provided better facilities for making a branch to the Llanberis line than to Bethesda. He thought the fact that Mr Assheton Smith had offered his co-operation was also a very important matter. From the financial statistics given by Mr Herbert, it was cleat lr seen that the cost of conveyance be- tween Pontrbythallt and Llandinorwic was about f3000. This money alone would pay for the working of the railway, and bring in a profit of £ 1500. And one bird in band was better than ten in the bush. The Friars' Schools at Bangor was the only bird in hand at Bangor (laughter and cheers). But the college was a bird in the bush (renewed laughter). So was the pier talked of (great laughter), and so also was the smithfield (continued laughter). Mr Jones then went on to show other advantages offered by a connection with the Llanberis railway. Mr R. J. Davids and Mr R. Lt Jones then ex- plained by a plan how a line could be constructed from Pontrhythallt. Mr W. Jones proposed a vote of thanks to the deputation, which was seconded by Mr Henry Owen, and pa-sed unanimously. A vote of thanks to the chairman wss proposed bv Dr Williams and seconded by Mr Richard Thomas. Mr R. D. Pritchard asked if the deputation could tell within £ 500 per mile the cost of the proposed line to Pontrhythallt ? The Mayor said they could not tell, but that it would be much less than the other branch. Mr R. J. Davids said it would be below £ 20,000. The meeting then dispersed.
(' (. c- !£,uUw5. Lady Macbeih. A Study. B/ M. LEIGH-NOEL. liondon, Hyman and Sons. A most readable little book, and a most useful one in its way. To those who have neither time nor, perhaps, ability to form from a consideration of the mingled phases of Lidy Macbeth's charac- ter as presented in the play, a clear and distinct, and at the same time a just estimate of that character, this study—the first of a series we be- lieve-will prove most acceptable. We think. however, that the writer has, to a considerable extent, begged the question." The April Part of the Young Ladies' Journal.- Those ladies who are desirous of seeing the greatest displav of spring fashions should secure The Young Ladies' Journal, in which will be found btfth coloured and uncoloured toilets for ladies and children ia almost endless variety. The fashion articles always give a great deal of in- formation which must be welcome at this seassn, when new dresses to ladies seem as much a matter of course as new foliage to trees. A novel toilet set is introduced in this part entitled the Zoo Set, in which animals of many kinds form the em- bellishment of a pretty cover for a duchesss table, and for a set of mats of varied shape and size; besides which there are designs for a great variety of other articles of fancy work. The literature contained in the April part is full of interest, and is always selected with a view to its being pure and wholesome the morbid and highly sensational is excluded. The cookery recipes are to be relied on; they are seasonable and clearly described. Music, poetry, and much miscellaneous reading combine to make the April Part of The Young Ladies' Journal useful and amusing. The price, with its three splendid supplements, is 9d. We have received a copy of Knowledge (London: Messrs Wyman and Sons), -sent presumably for review. As far as we are concerned, it was un- necessary to send a copy for this purpose, as we intended at the earliest opportunity to bring this excellent weekly to the notice of our readers. We regularly gladly pay the trifling price asked for it. and consider we get more than our money's worth in every number. It is a paper that ought to be in the reading-roora of every club and institute in the kingdom, and that not in single copies, but in dozens, so that all might acquire sound reliable knowledge concerning matters which it is a shame young men nowadays should be ignorant of. In these days of educational ferment, an auxiliary of this kind is simply invaluable, and any wealthy philanthropist who wishes to confer on his country a real and lasting benefit, cannot do so more effectually than by distributing copies of Know- ledge broadcast through the land. Young Welsh- men particularly, handicapped as they are in the race of life by a neglected or incomplete education, should look on it as a tine qua non to become purchasers of Knowledge. A regular perusal of the various papers furnished weekly in its pages, can- not fail to result in the enlargement of tbe reader's mind, as well as in sharpening his mental vision. One of the collateral results of the constant con- sideration of the subjects dealt with in Knowledge, is the development of a large and tolerant spirit, which at once places its possessor en rapport with what is essentially the truest and best spirit of tho age. We propose at intervals to reproduce in our columns some of the interesting articles with which Knoio'edge is crowded. We heartily recom- mend it to our readers.
THE NATIONAL WELSH EISTEDD- FOD. The musical committee have now completed their arrangements with Dr Parry, the Welih com- poser, with reference to the performance of his sacred cantata "Nebuchadnezzar," which will be performed for the first time at these meetings. It has been decided to appoiut a paid secretary for a period of six months from the 1st of May next, at a remunerution of jEtOO and commission. It is an- nounced that 3000 copies of the list of subjects, being the first issue, have already been sold and it has been resolved that a second issue of 2000, with the additional list of prizaa recently offered, should be printed forthwith. Mr Wiliiam Rath- bone. M.P., has intimated his intention of sub. scribing JE25 to the Eisteddfod funds. The literary committee report that a special prize of £ 20 has been offered by the commercial travellers of North and South Walos for the best English essay on "Richard Roberts of Manchester: his Life, and the Influence of hisltventive Genius on the Manu. facture of this Country." The adjudicaters will be Alderman W. H. Bailey,*Salford Mr Pryce Jones, Newtown; and Mr D. Emlyn Evans, Here. ford. The subject of this essay was the son of a humble shoemaker at Ceryg H wfa. L'auymynech, Montgomeryshire, and at an early age he mani- fested a remarkable genius for invention. A Man- chester gentleman on a visit in this neighbourhood was attracted by one of his inventions, and took him back with him to this city, for the purpose of giving him a training at an engineering establish- ment. In 1814 he went to London, where he re- mained for some time at Maudsley's ryorks. After a lapse ol three years he returned to Manchester and opened a place of business, and there made the first machine for smoothing iron, which is still ex- hibited at South Kensington. He followei that w.th many other important inventions, and subse- quently established the Atiaa Works (the largest engineering establishment in t ft kingdom), in conjunction with Mr Thomas Sharpe In conse- quence of the strike in Stal/bridge in 1824, he in- vented the spinning-jenny, and with this and other inventions brought about quite a revolution in the manufactures of-this country. He died in London, having attained his 75th year. The Marquis of Bate having offered a prize of JE50 fcr a translation into Welsh of the Alcestis" of Euripides, to be competed for at the Eisteddfod, it is announced that the Marquis alto intends to offer £ 600 for the beet setting of the words to music.
PWLLHELI. THE LITERARY SOCIETT.-It was with pleasure and satisfaction that we bailed the formation of a new society lately in this town called the Pwll- heli Society of Natural Science and Literature." We must say that Pwllheli in years gone by has been very indifferent to the culture cf its inhabit- 1 ants, and is still fpi. behind the surrounding towns j in T.hi.-) rospeit. While the towus about us have had for years their night schools, science classes, debating societies, and many similar institutfons, auch societies have been here conspicuous by their absence. Hence it is not to be wondered at that a great number of our youths spend the whole of their leisure time in parading the streets, night after night. It was high time that some move- ment like the above should be set on foot. and we are pleased to find that it has been warmly sup- 1 ported by several of our leading inhabitants, but the young men as yet have not given it the sup- I port it deserves. The president of the society is Love Jones.Parry, Esq., M.P. vice-presidents: Williasa Rathboae, hsq., M.P., H. J. Ellis- Nanney, Esq, O. Lloyd Evans, Esq., and R. O. Jones, Esq mayor; treasurer, the Rev D. E. Daviea, and hon. secretaries, Mr Wm. Jones, Meirion View, and Mr O. M. Jones, Gwyddonfa. Its first meeting was held in January last, when a very interesting and instructive paper was read by the Rev John Jones, F.R.G.S., on The Origin of Man." The mayor, who presided at that meeting, was so pleased with the paper that he kindly offered to defray the expenaes of publish- ing it, and to present each member with a capy of same. The other dsy we saw a printed copy, I which, by the way, has been very neatly got up in a pamphlet form by Mr Owen, bookseller. The perusal of it gave as much pleasure, and we Can assure our friends that it would pay them well to read it. The second meeting was held in Febru. ary, when a paper on the Botany of Pwllheli Embaukoaent" was read by Mr W. Williams, and was published in this paper of the 14th inst. At this meeting it was suggested by Mr G. P. Jones that it would be desirable to have at each meet- ing, in addition to a paper on any scientific or j. literary subject, a debate as well. The suggestion was favourably received, and in the last meeting, which was held last Tuesday, after a paper had been read by the Rev D. E. Davies, on "Eben Fardd," a I debate followed, the subject being "Portdiulleyn Railway, will it be beneficial to the town of Pwll- heli or not ?" Mr O. D. Edwards, in a long and able speech, opened on the affirmative side, Mr G. P. Jones following oa the negative side Mr Jones's able remarks, strong arguments, and the eloquent manner in which they were delivered, took the members by surprise, and he was heartily cheered when he resumed his seat. After a few remarks from Mr R. Rowland, North and Seuth Wales Bank, and Mr Mescal, on the respective sides, the meeting decided, when there appeared ten on the affirmative and nine on the negative side. We have given this lengthy account of the operations of this society, trusting by so doing that it will be the means of inducing several more of our young men to become members. A CONSERVATIVE CLUB.-A rumour is abroad that the Conservatives of our town have decided upon establishing a Conservative Club here, and that they are already looking out for suitable premises. Elated with their success at Brighton and Cambridge, it would seem that the? are not going to leave a stone unturned in order to reverse the verdict of 18SO and 1881 in Carnarvonshire. But we venture to believe that they will find it a harder task than they anticipate. Liberal principles have taken so deep a root in the minds of the most enlightened of our electors that it will require something far more substantial than tne rhapsodies of a Lord Randolph Churchill and the establishing of Conservative clubs to obliterate them but for all that, we ard of opinion that they are taking the right course towards eecuring'their obj set,and w« would be very pleased to see the Liberal executive taking a similar course. A friend, the other day, described the latter as being in a chronia state of "masterly inactively;" and, judging from appearances, we are led to believe that tbe des- cription is too true. A SUDDBX DISAPPKARAVCS.—A well-kaown gentleman of this town has very suddenly dis- appeared, owing, it is supposed, to being involved in pecuniary difficulties. This gentleman was a very zealous supporter of the temperance move. ment and a Sunday School teacher. We are sorry to find that in the confusion and hurry of his hasty departure he forgot to refund a sum of thirty shillings which had been subscribed by his Sunday School class towards the Missionary Society, and which was at the time in his custody. BOROUGH MAGISTRATES' COURT, Turas- DAY, THB 20TH ISST.-Before Mr Robert Owen Jones (mayor), Mr Ivor Parry (ex-mayor), and Mr Robert Jones. The Last Chance.—Mr Ellis was charged with being drunk and disorderly. The bench, after hearing the evidence,said they would give him one more chance, but that if he came before them again they would send him to gaol without the option of a fine. He was ordered to pay a fine of 10s and costs. Board of Trade Proseeution.A Lively Scene.- Ellis Wright and William Jones were charged with being in possession of wreck and failing to report to the receiver.—Mr George Thomas, of Carnarvon, appeared for the Board of Trade, and Mr Cledwyn Owen for the defendants. After the statement of the case for the proseoution by Mr Thomas, the mayor, addiessing Mr Owen, asked if he wished to address an apology to the bench for words used by him in the course of the last case, in which he appeared before them, and stated that until an apology was made they would decline to hear him.-Mr Owen, most emphatically refused to apologize, or even to withdraw his previous re- marks or modify in any way any expressions he made.use of, though repeatedly urged to do so by the magistrates, and as to their threatened refusal to hear him, bis clients bad been summoned before that court, and had engaged him to defend them, and he insisted on being heard in the case.—Tho mayor then remarked that he thought they bad no jurisdiction In a case of wreck, but Mr Thomas contended that they had.—Mr Owen said that even if they had not, he would waive that I objection. — The bench, however, decided unanimcu ly that they would not hear the case. Selling Drink without a License.—Another Scene.— Mrs Parry was summoned by the police for this offence.—Mr Owen said he appeared for the defendant.—The magistrates having conferred with the superintendent of the police, he faid he withdrew the charge against Mrs Parry, and would summon her before the county meg'strates.— Upon Mr Owen rising to make an application, the magistrates rose and left the court. The proceed. ings caused the greatest sensation in court.

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, the first and most important thing to be attended to is that the appe^te is good and the body strong. If the system is west it is then naturally open to disease, and experience has already 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 and conscientiously recommend a preparation which is steadily and quietly gaining a firm footing in almost (lvery 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 II has been proved beyond all doubt to be a genuine invention. We advise a careful perusal of the: following. Its name signifies its contents:— HfflLIM mm ill BITTERS, OR VEGETABLE TONIC. I This preparation contains Quinine and the essence or active principles of Sarsaparilla, SatTron Lnveader, Dandelion, Gentian, and Burdock, mixed in happy preparations. It has one great advantage, viz., the entire approval and confidence of the leading members of the medical pro- fession. Quinine Bitters assist digestion, promote and facilitate circulation, strengthen the nerve*- and muscles, and purify the blood. Patients who have suftered long and suffered severely, con' tinually bear testimony to their remedial effects. Specially adapted for all diseases arising front' a nervons state of the system, such as palpitations, tremblings, flushing of blood to the facer nervous indigestion, low spirits, undue anxiety, neuralgic and nerve pains generally; also indi- gestion 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 of lan,,o,,ir and oppression, drowsiness, and flying pains in the region of the heart. In short, this preparation (the Quinine Bitters) is a genera? tonic and blood purifier, strengthening that part of the system which is weakest, and therefore most liable to Colds and their consequences.
