To the Editor of the Free Press. Dear Sir,—Will you kindly inform me, if yon can, at what hour on Sunday evenings the members of St. James's Choir are supposed to be in their seats, as I have noticed very frequently of late that some few of them make it a practice of walking in from five to fifteen minutes after the service has commenced. I am sure it must be a source of no small annoyance to the clergyman officiating, as well as to a great many of the congregation, of whom your correspondent signs himself ONE.
THE FOUR SHILLING RATE. To tlte Editor of the Free Press, Dear Sir,—Permit me through the medium of the PONTYPOOL FREE PRESS, as a ratepayer in this district, to ask the Chairman of the Pontypool Local Board to be kind enough to answer in your next week's issue the following three questions Firstly. Is the rumour correct that some of the mem. bers of the Board are personally interested in the levy- ing and collecting of the above rate, inasmuch as they are to receive a considerable portion themselves, one at least to the extent of some scores of pounds, for services rendered in connection with the recent law suit- Masters v. the Pontypool Local Board ? Secondly. If the rumour referred to be a well-founded one, would the Chairman be kind enough to publish, -for the information of my fellow-ratepayers and myself, the particulars of the services rendered in each case, and detail the amounts charged ? # Thirdly. Is it not directly antagonistic to the spirit of the Public Health Act that any persons should under such circumstances become or remain members of any Local Board, and especially so, to assist in making or confirming a rate ? I am, faithfully yours, QUERIST. Pontypool, August 13th, 1879. "Knowlcdge is power." Not always; the boy that gathers up his nshing-tackle and empty basket as the sun is sinking in the west knows that his mother stands watching and waiting for him at the garden gate, and the knowledge that the kindling wood re- mains uncut is such a source of weakness to him that to march along and whistle, What is Home Without a Mother r is an utter impossibilit_

SATURDAY, AUGUST 16TH, 1879. WHAT may be the .ultimate result of the con- tinued efflux of our working population from the shores of their mother country cannot as yet be known with any degree of certainty; the subject presents to our understandings a problem, for the solution of which at the present time we should require an almost prophetic range of vision. That working men are availing themselves-and in very large numbers—of the cheapened rates at which many of the steam companies convey pas- sengers to those parts of the world where labour is in extensive demand, is an indisputable fact. The countries differ in their climates or produc- tions, but those who intend making them their future homes have but one end in view when they leave Old England, and that is to improve their outward circumstances, which the glowing ac- counts of prosperity in those countries lead them to believe can be much more speedily done there than in England. Better by far to seek a foreign clime and make a comfortable living abroad than starve at home. What better course can a man take who has been striving hard to make both ends meet, and cannot succeed in doing so, than that of leaving his troubles behind him, and stretching forward to grasp the prosperity which may so easily be his ? THE learned Judge of the County Court, on Wednesday, made an observation full of signifi- cance, in reference to the distress existing in the neighbourhood through the falling off in trade. On a commitment order being asked for against a man who had failed to comply with an order of the Court, his Honour said it would be useless to make one. It appeared that the man was earn- ing but 2s. a day, and that he was only engaged three days in the week, and upon this he had a wife and six young children to maintain. The defendant's wife gratefully thanked the Judge, but was met with the sharp rejoinder, Don't thank me, but thank your poverty; I would make you pay if I could." There is the difficulty. A period of unprecedented depression has unhappily fallen upon the country, and it cannot be doubted that this neighbourhood suffers quite as keenly as any other. In times of prosperity men were able to discharge their liabilities, but when work be- came scarce, and wages also were reduced, less money was consequently in circulation; the result has been not only an increase in County Court plaints, but a considerable addition to the number of applications for commitment orders. Pauper- ism, again, has assumed a really startling phase, and the Board of Guardians have difficulties to meet which must oft perplex their minds, and puzzle them as to how they can best economise the money of which they are the trustees, and at the same time do their duty to the poor of whom they are the guardians. When it is shown that a man does his best, while struggling for the maintenance of a large family, to pay his instal- ments, but, through an unforeseen event, he has been deprived of a large portion of his weekly income, it is hard to send him to prison, which is a reflection upon him for life, and increases the burden upon the ratepayers, for his family, being deprived of his support, consequently become chargeable to the rates. It is a sign of the times, but it is a sad thing to have to thank poverty for salvation from a prison. Well may we join in the hope that the dawn of brighter days is in the immediate rather than the distant future.
ON DIT. BY AN ABERSYCHAN CONTRIBUTOR. IF, as people say, Music is the food of love," what a feast has Cupid been having at the Italian Gardens of late, where, under the leadership of our much-respected neighbour, Mr Sewell, good music has been so liberally dispensed. Go on, Friend Sewell, and may your efforts to cultivate a love for the beautiful and mellifluent strains sent forth by your party be crowned with success. NOTHING succeeds like success," and the volun- teer muster at the Varteg on Saturday last must indeed be considered quite a success. The country's picked men, when in uniform and under arms," generally command the interest of the "fair" sex, whose presence on Saturday contri- buted in no small degree to the liveliness of the scene. I am not a military critic, and therefore, exercising my judgment from a civilian's point of view, I should be inclined to say the field" manoeuvres were gone through in a most credit- able manner. I can, however, confidently affirm that the feeding" operations were performed in most enthusiastic style, the men showing them- selves well practised in "knife and fork" drill by coming to the charge and making the attack" with great spirit, this being followed up with vigour along the whole line, turned the enemy's flanks," and caused a complete rout, his "wings" and "main body" being cut up and almost annihilated; the "head quarters" being at the same time in great danger from lively sharp- shooters who wired in with an effective and well- sustained popping fire during the whole c(h)am- paign." Everything had been so well provided for the occasion by our esteemed neighbour, Mr' D. S. Davies, that it may seem hypercritical even to hint at faultfinding. One serious omission, however, was made in the arrangements-your Abersychan Contributor was not invited to join in the attack—ahem! THE ordinary difficulties and troubles of an editor are prodigious, but when is added an occasional "dig in the ribs from one whose "fellow feeling" 0 should make him "wondrous kind," it would not be surprising to find even an editor's heart to falter. 'Tis true some editors are very hard-hearted and hard-headed, and lose not even the slightest op- portunity to find a hole in a neighbour's coat, which, however small, pauses a longing to enlarge it. One need not therefore be astonished to find a literary bantling" of local repute complaining of your correction-of an error in a recent police report, and clamouring loudly for truth." Judg- ing from the choice and gentlemanly phraseology of the writer, one must infer that his abode was an Elysium, with a superabundance of that much- vaunted characteristic. I pause to sigh, and ex- claim, It is far safer to sin like Lucifer, in wily guise, than simply err and tell the wrong we do."
ARREST OF A SUPPOSED MURDERER AT CARDIFF. On Wednesday, an Italian named Ubaldo Cam- pagnoli, who had worked as a shoemaker at Cardiff for five years, and had married, having one child, was arrested and handed over to the London police for transmission to Italy under the Extradition Treaty, on a charge of wilful murder committed many years ago in Ancona, Italy. The Cardiff police have been watching him some time, having had information that the supposed murderer had gone to Cardiff. The prisoner made no reply to the charge. His wife was terribly shocked. He was to all appearance a quiet, inoffensive man.
STRANGE FREAKS OF LIGHTNING.—A violent thun- derstorm burst over the north of Ireland on Wednesday morning. At Rathfriland, Co. Down, the lightning struck the house of a small farmer named Peter Clark, and caused some damage to it. Two sons of the farn:er were sleeping together, and one, aged ten years, was struck dead, while the other remained uninjured. Six chickens were under one hen at the same farm, and they were all killed, but the hen was untouched.
PONTYPOOL PETTY SESSIONS. SATURDAY.—Before Colonel BVRDE (chairman), E J. PHILLIPS, Esq., and C. H. WILLIAMS, Esq. A SCRIMMAGE BETWEEN WOMEN. Hannah Hurley, a married woman, of Blaenavon, was summoned for assaulting Harriet Ellis, on the 26th July. It appeared that defendant and her hus- band had been lodgingwith the complainant, and on the day named left their apartments. At that time 3s 6d was due for rent, and complainant went into defendant's bedroom and tried to prevent her taking a box away until this was paid. A struggle took place between the parties, which was the assault com- plained of.—Defendant denied assaulting the com- plainant, and said the 3s 6dwas owing for beer which had been supplied her in the house. It was an open house for the sale of drink, and anybody could obtain it.—Complainant strongly refuted the imputation, and said if it was in such repute as defendant alleged it was she who made it so.—The Chairman said com- plainant had no right to take the box out of the room before defendant had vacated it. The struggle did not amount to an assault in the eye of the law, and the case wonld be dismissed, each party to pay her cwn costs. Defendant, however, would have to pay the 3s 6d due for rent.—The latter declared her ina- bility to discharge the debt, and took her seat in the prisoner's dock. A GANG OF TRESPASSERS. John Williams, Edith Ann Lacey, Margaret Nield, Elvira Gibbs, Edith Thomas, Margaret Williams, and James Hicks, a group of youngsters, were summoned by the Blaendare Coal Company for trespassing upon their property.—Mr Greenway, who prosecuted, said the Company were sorry to have to bring a number of such young children into Court, but they had really no alternative. Instead of buying coal people sent their children to steal it, and so largely were these depredations carried on that the Company felt com- pelled to use such measures as were open to them to put a stop to it. He did not wish, however, to unduly press the charges.—The defendants, who all pleaded guilty, were ordered to pay a fine of 5s each, or go to the House of Correction for five days. AN ASSAULT. William Lewis, of Glascoed, was summoned for as- saulting John Harris, on the 27th July.—Defendant did not appear, & complainant having deposed to the facts, the Bench inflicted a penalty of 20s, or 14 days hard labour. BOOT STEALING. Joseph Williams, seaman, was charged on remand, and pleaded guilty to, stealing six pairs of boots, the property of Mr Henry Jacob, of Abersychan. On the previous Saturday night prosecutor missed three pairs of boots from the inside of his shop, and while making inquiries about them he saw the prisoner come and take three more pairs, whick could be reached from the street, and walk off.—Sergt. Lewis apprehended the prisoner with three pairs in his possession, and in an outbuilding where prisoner was proved to have been were three more pairs.-Supt. M'Intosh in- formed the Bench that prisoner had been convicted at Newport for stealing a pair of trousers, and this theft was committed on the day he came out of prison.—The Magistrates sentenced him to three months hard labour. STEALING A PLANE. James Griffiths, a wanderer, pleaded guilty to steal- ing a plough plane, the property of C, W. Simmons, of Cheltenham.—P.c. Boyd took the prisoner into custody, with the plane in his possession, at Pen- twynmawr.—Supt. M'Intosh applied for a remand for the production of of witnesses, and prisoner was remanded for a week.
PONTYPOOL POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before E. J. PHILLIPS, Esq. CHARGE OF STEALING A RiNG.-Annie White, a girl, was charged with stealing a gold ring, the pro- perty of John Andrews, carpenter, of Blaenavon.— P.c. Smith deposed to apprehending prisoner, from information received; but, in the absence of other witnesses, she was remanded in custody until Satur- day. DRUNK AND RiOTOUS.-Thomas Smith was charged with being drunk and riotous at Pontnewydd on the previous Saturday night.—P.c. Ford proved the case, and defendant was fined 10s or 7 days.—Paid.

CAERAU PARK COLLEGIATE SCHOOL, NEWPORT. The fourth annual meeting for receiving the report of the examination and distributing the prizes was held recently. Mr T. Gibbs, Mayor of Newport, presided, and there were also present the Rev David Edwards, chairman of the school board, Councillors Benjamin Evans and Enoch Griffiths, Rev D. W. Davies, Mr T. Howell, &c. The report of the head master showed that the school had maintained its full complement of pupils, & that good work had been done during the year. Several of the pupils had again been successful in passing the various prelimi- nary examinations, and by sending one pupil to the last Oxford Local Examination, a beginning had been made in testing the teaching of the school in compe- tition with pupils of other schools. After the report had been read, the Mayor proceeded to distribute the prizes and certificates of merit. Mr Benjamin Evans kindly presented a handsome prize to the boy held in greatest respect by his fellow pupils for his courtesy and uprightness in the play-ground. As this was to be adjudged by a ballot of the boys, much interest was excited as to the result. For the second time (he having won the same prize last year) it was voted by a large majority to A. Winmill. A prize given by Mr Reynolds for the best map was held over, as Mt Reynolds was,prevezited from being present. Kind words of encouragement were addressed to the boys by the Revs. D. Edwards and D. W. Davies, and by Mr E. Griffiths, Mr B. Evans, and the Mayor, waf announced that a special prize would be given next year to the best pupil in tke whole school. Prior to the prize-giving, a play, entitled Ignorance at the bar," had been acted by the boys with much spirit, and the proceedings were enlivened by Mise Bell& Davies singing two songs appropriate to the occasion, "My playmate Jack and I," and The noble boy of truth." Pianoforte solos were rendered by Masteri Mann and Reynolds, and a duet (ftute and .piano) by Herr Suhr and Master L. Lewis. A kind farewell was then taken of Herr Suhr (who is returning to Germany), and the meeting was brought to a close.
WHALING IN CARMARTHEN BAY.—rThree whales were seen coming down Carmarthen Bay 4tbout four o'clock on Monday afternoon. Thfge hoaU. aufened by six men each, went out from Tenby and lfarpoon. ed them. Nets were not used. One of the whales went away at a rapid pace with the hoat in tow, ."hut was subsequently captured and brouak* tqjthore. Ine three are now at high-water mark. They each mea- sure between 30 and 40 feet, and weigh, about a ton and a-half, There was great risk in the capture, and one boat was nearly upset. The greatest etcitement was manifested by crowds on the shore. The Spiritualists are going ahead in America. A flower medium, who, as her name is Via. Hatch, would be more appropriately classified as an egg medium, has been performing in Chelsea, Mass. Flowers, to the number of 125, were brought by spirit hands and distributed among the audience, and, the gas burners having previously been con- nected with an electric lighting apparatus, Mrs. Hatch and her spiritual attendants sent the elec- tric fluid into the pipes, brilliantly lighting the apartment. Mr. Edison has evidently a deal to learn yet. Another Yankee medium, Mrs. Simp- son, has been lately surprising her followers by fisbino- in spiritual waters. She takes a globe full of water, places it under the table, and after the lapse of a few seconds it contains a fine specimen of old fish! Mrs. Simpson should try for salmon; it would pay her better. HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.—Debilitated Constitutions.—When climate, age, or hardships, have undermined the health, skin diseases are prone to arise and augment the existing weakness. Hollo- way's medicaments daily prove most serviceable, even under the most untoward eircumstances. This well- known and high-esteemed unguent possesses the finest balsamic virtues, which soothe and heal without inflaming or irritating the most tender skin or most sensitive sore. Holloway's Ointment and Pills are. infallible for curing bad legs, varicose veins, swelled ancles, erysipelas, scaly skin, and every variety of skin disease. Over all these disorders Holloway's remedies exert a quick and favourable action, and, where cure is possible, gradually but certainly arrive at that consummation. They are invaluable in the cure of scrofula and scurvy.
