NORTH WALES. CHESTER AND HOLYHEAD RAILWAY.—It is understood that the portion of the line from the other side of the Menai Straits tQjHolyhead is likely to be opened on the 1st of August. MOSTSN..—In oui last we noticed the death of Elizabeth, the beloved wife of the Rev. Hugh J?ugh, of Mostyn,, on Monday, the 26th ult. The unexpected death of this amiable wajnan created a mournful sensation in the neighbourhood. On the following Thursday her body was carried to the grave, and a very large number of people assembled on the occasion to tes- tify their regard for the deceased, and their sympathy with the surviving. In the chapel at Mostyn where the disconsolate husband officiates, Mr. Robert Roberts, of Mostyn, prayed, the Rev. Lewis Everett delivered an appropriate address, and Mr. Ellis Ellis, of Mostyn, concluded. After this service the body was followed by many hundreds of people to Zion chapel in the same parish, where the Rev, Mr. Jones, of Liverpool, prayed, and the Rev. Mr. Hughes, of Holywell, delivered an impressive sermon. In the yard adjoining the chapel, the grave was prepared, where the Rev. Mr. Price, of Denbigh, delivered a most affecting address, and the whole service was concluded with prayer by the Rev. Mr. Pierce, of Liverpool. The assembled hundreds seemed deeply affected by the ser- vices of the day. Four young children have been bereaved of a most affectionate mother. Her amiable temper and unaf- fected piety gained the love and esteem of all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. We deeply sympathise with our esteemed brother, Mr. Pugh, in the severe loss he has sus- tained. In passing through the deep waters, may he be mer- cifully sustained!
