NOTES AND COMMENTS- Mr Bircham, the Local Government Board Inspector for North Wales, made a speech at the Bangor Guardians' meeting on Friday, which should hare the careful consideration of all our local Guardians. During his speech he made revelations of a startling character with regard to the slum life of Bangor. The district which Mr Bircham had visited was one of the worst in Bangor, but the cases he brought before the! Board are by no means isolated ones. In other parts of the town, notably in the neighbourhood of Dean-street, Brick-street, &c., and Garden Square in particular, the hemes of the poor are particularly squalid. In the course of some enquiries, our correspondent was told of a couple of houses, one of which had been turned into a stable, with a door of communication between it and the other house. This house had only a kitchen and a loft, in which a large family made their home, and the stench from the stable, and the heap of dung which was gathered in the back- yard,-which itself was not more than an ordinary breakfast table,-was such as to throw the strongest man off his feet. Owing to its insanitary condition, the house has been visited by typhoid fever, which carried away a number of victims, while during the last two or three years consumption > has also claimed its victims there.
