PROPOSED FREE LIBRARY.—Last week resolu- I tions were passed, at the Hyfrydle and Tabernacle debating Societies, in favour of a^public library at Holyhead, the resolutions being forwarded to the Urban District Council. No doubt this is a ques- tion worthy of the consideration of the town, but 1 the great drawback is that a pennyrate would only amount to about JMO a year, and this would not be sufficient to purchase and maintain a library, unless supported by a large amount of voluntary contributions. However, it would undoubtedly be a great boon to the town to have a library of some sort. THE LATE CHANCELLOR BRISCOE'S PROPERTY. -On Friday last Mr John Pritchard, auctioneer, Jangor, offered for sale the furniture of the late lev Chancellor Briscoe, D.D.

The lev Robert Price, B.A., senior curate, has, how- !ver, been administrator pendente lite, and by hiu nstruotions the property was sold on Friday, with he exception of the specific legacies, which are re- iained pending the decision of the court as to the ralidity of the will.
