Ystradyfodwg School Board Appointments. Sir,—The above Board has just appointed an assistant master for the .forth fupil Teacnr ers' Centre, and, as one who takes a iiiiiterest; in educational matters, I should very much like to know what are its governing principles is making such appointments. I read the election addresses of our present members and, to tike best of my recollection, each one promised to see that all appointments should be made ac- cording to merit. I am sorry to say that thesa pi-omises have been frequently broken since the last election, and that sectarianism has been the ruling principle of the majority of them. The appointment referred to is a case in point. Teit t applications were sent in, and of th fivo were chosen to appear before the Board, wboee qualifications, etc., arc as follows: SCIENCES. 8?

In aD honesty and sincerity I ask, what do the mem- bers of our Board mean by passing over men oi higher collegiate qualifications than the one appointed? It is a great pity that they eannofc look upon these appointments but in the light of sectarianism. I would advise the readers of your excellent and widely-circulated paper to observe carefully how the members voted on this occasion, -and to keep thetr doings in re- membrance when the next election comes.
