A MEETING of the General Committee of the Normal College for Wales in conjunction with the Swansea Executive Com- mittee will be held at the vestry of Castle-street Chapel, Swansea, on Wednesday, the 9th of August next, at 6 p.m., for the purpose of taking into consideration the following amongst other matters The constitution of the institution; The mode and period of its removal from Brecon to Swansea • The deed of trust and nomination of trustees The power of enabling the Swansea Executive Committee to add to its, number. The importance of the subjects to be discussed and settled will, it is presumed, secure a full attendance. As the town at that time will necessarily be exceedingly crowded (being the week in which the British Association will commence holding its sittings), It would be highly desirable that those who purpose attending should inform the secretaries of the Executive Committee, the Rev. D. Evans, York-place, and J. M. Buckland, Esq., Adelaide-place, of their intention as soon as practicable, in' order that proper accommodations might be timely procured for them. D. REES, J. G.

THIS institution is intended for training and preparing school- masters and mistresses for Wales, and is to be established and supported by exclusively voluntary effort. Its character will be altogether unsectarian, audits discipline will combine religious and secular training upon the principles of the British and Foreign School Society. The estimated sum required for the land, college, model school, furniture, library, and scientific apparatus, adapted for 100 students, is about £ 6,000; but E2,00,1 more would be neces- sary to extend its advantages for a corresponding number of female teaehers-an object greatly to be desired, if adequate funds be sup- plied for both purposes. The agent (Mr. Edward Roberts) is authorised to solicit and re- ceive donations and subscriptions, or the intended sum may be communicated to the honorary secretaries, and paid through either of the following Banking Companies to the credit of the Trea- surer, A.
