South Wales to whom the claims of the College have been more recently submitted. If any of the advocates of a free Normal College whose zeal once bordered even on excess, have now assumed an attitude of hostility towards a cause in whose favour they invoked the aid of Heaven and the energies of the Church, let them bear their own burden Let the free educationists move on and if the secret manoeuvres and open movements of the Government party and their nondescript abettors, of whose devices I am not quite ignorant, have the temporary effect of keeping some good friends of education from joining our ranks, we need not be discouraged. Let us steadily advance, taking the words of Mr. H. Griffiths as our motto tee want no Government props.

RATEABLE PROPERTY IN THE TOWN OF CARDIFF, TO THE EDITOR OF THE PRINCIPALITY. ,)-.IL, At the last Street Meeting I made a statement in the course of discussion to the effect, that nearly E19,000 of pro- perty in the two parishes of Cardiff did not contribute to the poor rate. Mr. Bowen has called upon me and drawn my attention to that statement. Upon reference to my diary I find the follow- ing entry on the 8th January, 1848, from figures given to me by Mr. Bowen at that date: — H Rateable value of property in St. John's on £ which rates can be collected. 10,500 Ditto St. Mary's 13,700 Total. X23,200 Value of property in St. John's 17,500 Ditto St. Mary's 23.000 Total. £ 40,500" Mr. Bowen now explains to me that though these figures ■wiire correct, yet the above sum of £40,500 was the gross esti- mated value of the property but that the rateable value was £ 32,200 only. Whereby it would appear, that at that time there was about E9,000 of property which did not contribute to the poor rate. I most readily take this opportunity of explaining the error in my statement, feeling it to be due both to the public and to Mr. Bowen; and I may add, that since that period I find by the rate books there is a considerable diminution in the amount on which rates cannot be collected. I am, sir, yours obediently, Cardiff, March 22, 1849. R. LEWIS REECE.
