THE Archbishop of York's recent speech at Sheffield, although avowedly made for a local object, had nothing contracted either in the prin- ciples which he enunciated or the interests which he advocated. The condition of the United Church of England and Ireland, whether it be viewed in regard to the tremendous influence which such a vast organisation must necessarily exert, or in respect to the position which it occupies as the chief national institution, must always be a subject of public interest, even to those who refuse to pay her an allegiance or to worship through her forms. We think we may yet go further than this, and say that, granting that there are many who object to an establishment altogether, and would be glad to see Church and State disunited, yet that there are few, if any, right-minded men who, when they have to accept the establishment as a fact, would not rather see it earnest and vigorous in its efforts for the spiritual improvement of the great masses of our fellow-countrymen, than careless and stagnant in the great work for the pro- motion of which the Church is supposed to exist. We are confident that all such, as well as all wise churchmen, will hail this speech of the Archbishop of York as a faithful, able, and practi- cal exposition of what the Church should aim at accomplishing, as well as a most encouraging record of the present condition of active religion in England. The immediate object of the Archbishop's ad- dress was to raise funds for the building and endowment of new churches in the populous neighbourhood of Sheffield. The plan proposed was this Seven new churches to be erected, at a cost of £ 30,000. Of this sum zC4,000 are to be supplied by societies. One gentleman, Mr. John Browne, has promised the munificent sum of £5,000 and at a preliminary private meeting £3,800 had been obtained. So that nearly £ 13,000 of the X.30,000 was in hand before his Grace addressed the meeting, and at the conclusion of his address nearly XIO,000 were added. Now, this looks something like business, and we think that we are not exaggerating the importance of the Archbishop's proposals, when we say that this ready response is to be attributed we believe, to the straightforward manner in which his Grace proposed to deal with the matter. The details of the plan, for the carrying out of which English- men have so, readily contributed in one town so large a sum deserve the careful attention of those who, in other districts, are desirous of extending the influence and augmenting t5 the resources of the Church. Upon the three most important topics we must briefly touch ;-1. The method- of collecting money. II. The ehdowment of the incumbent. III. The allocation of pews and sittings. I. The method of collecting money.—While such splendid contributions as that of Mr. Browne, which we have mentioned above, are most neces- sary and desirable, not only as giving immediate augmentation to the fund, but as an evidence to the working population that those who are over them have a care for their best interests, yet we think that the movement will p-ove a failure if it be not supported by the sixpences and the pennies of the poorer sort. Men don't value what they get for nothing and we are quite certain that a working population will feel more at home in the humble building towards the con- struction of which they have given their mite than in the more costly structure which the splendid charity of their superiors has erected. Therefore, let not collections be made solely at meetings where wealthy men can put down their names for hundreds and thousands, but also by charity sermons, where the honest artisan may give, without any feeling of comparative shame, his sixpence or penny to the good work. H. Upon the subject of endowments, the Arch- bishop's speech leads us to believe that within a very short time there will be few livings in England—none with anything of a large charge —the income of which will be below X300 per annum. Nothing can be more pernicious than to have a number of new churches built and yet no provision made for the ministers and therefore the Ecclesiastical Commissioners will endow all such churches, as far is possible, with X200 per annum, if the patronage be public. III. The disposal of seats in a church has always been a question of deep interest. The Archbishop recommends that seats should neither be sold nor allotted, but thut regular attenders being parishion- ers, should be allowed to occupy the same seats each Sunday; not, however, as establishing any righ. thereto more than a mere matter of courtesyt This would, we think, keep up the parochial system in its entirety and be more advisable than to have any seat absolutely free for any one that likes to walk in; for then, when some popular man might preach, all the regular attendants might be "done" out of seats by strangers who just for one occasion came earlier. We think, how- ever that in every church there should be some perfectly free seats for strangers, and that these seats should certainly not to be the worst in the church, as the free seats generally are. Such are some of the practical thoughts sug- gested by the Archbishop's speech we believe they will receive the hearty assent of every thinking man. When we look around at the state of the church in England at present, and see such efforts for good going on in Sheffield, in Ripon, and in London, we cannot but think that there is no cause for complaining or lamenting over the state of religion in this country. There is no better test of the reality of religious feeling than the earnest, practical, hearty exertions which we see being made for carrying out the essential spirit of Christianity, and having the gospel preached to the poor.
After much hesitation the leaders of the great Conservative party" are gradually committing themselves to the proposition for repealing the Malt Tax which has so long been advocated by a portion of their followers. To some extent, perhaps, the conversion was inevitable. Conservatism had only one leg to stand upon while it defended Church-rates, and that support has become so evi- dently rotten that additional assistance was felt to be indispensable. The most enthusiastic Tory would hardly like to face an intelligent constituen- cy with no other title to its vote than his belief in Archdeacon Denison's Shorter Catechism." The day when Nonconformists can be put in limbo for the non-payment of a tax on conscience is evidently fast expiring and a candidate for the most venal of boroughs would scarcely venture to re-echo the celebrated speech of Mr. Church- warden Hoare. A change of policy on the malt question may, however, work more happily. A shout of "cheap beer" may have an excellent effect on the poorer class of voters, whose views of the obnoxious Church Tax are much more decided than satisfactory. The relief of the farmer" is a cry certain to go down in the counties, and may catch a vote in a few districts where parties are evenly balanced. Lord Derby might wince at the prospect of having to advocate this movement in Parliament; but his lieutenants have probably convinced him that otherwise there is no hope of a Conservative triumph next election and so his lordship has reluctantly given way. We draw this conclusion from the fact that Sir Fitzroy Kelly was sent down to the Leicester meeting on Satur- day with a brief to support the abolitionists, and his speech evidently foretokens the general conver- sion of his colleagues. There is no reason that the Malt Tax should be made a party question and it is highly probable that many of our Liberal readers would as gladly see the impost abolished as any of our Conservative friends. It would be discreditable to Mr. Glad- stone if he dealt with this or that tax in his annual Budget, not because of the policy or impolicy of the burthen, but because of the manner in which it had been treated by his opponents. If there be any matter on which politicians of all parties should concur in rendering their best services to the coun- try, such unanimity surely ought to ,be displayed in devising the best system of taxation. It is not, therefore, because the repeal of the Malt Tax is mainly advocated by Conservatives that we wish the scheme to be resisted. Whoever may be its enemies, we think it can be shown that the aboli- tion of the impost would fail to answer the ends expected from it in every point of view, and that the proposal is consequently unworthy of support. The argument of the Anti-Malt Tax party hang so badly together that a very brief examination of them discloses some ugly difficulties. The repeal is advocated at one moment in the interest of the farmer, and at another in the interest of the con- sumer, which interests are evidently antagonistic. The repeal of the Corn Laws, Sir Fitzroy Kelly tells us, demands that the farmer should be per- mitted to perform the operations of agriculture unshackled." With the existing heavy tax no man can grow barley unless he can grow it of the highest quality, because "if he grows inferior barley he knows it will become a drug on the market." In other words, Sir Fitzroy Kelly means to say that inferior barley is at present very cheap, and he wishes to make the country pay more for it. When he looks at the question in the working man's light, however, he discovers that beer would be enormously cheapened by the re- peal of the tax. It is admitted, we believe, that the malt duty is equivalent to a tax of less than a half-penny per quart upon beer. By abolishing the tax, however, Sir Fitzroy Kelly contends that a "quart of beer of the ordinary average quality now sold at 4d., could be produced for 2d. The difference between Sir Fritzroy's statement to blind the farmer and his statement to blind the labourer is wholly irreconcileable the two arguments carry with them their own refu- tation. If the tax were repealed the price of beer would probably be lowered. But the farmer could derive no benefit from the measures unless the price of barley were raised. There would, of course, be an increased demand for barley, for a reduction in price, however small, would certainly augment the consumption; but that increased demand would be satisfied by in- creased cultivation. Sir Fitzroy Kelly asserts that the due rotation of crops is prevented at present by the pressure of the tax but this fact-which he strangely urges as an argument for the abroga" tion of the duty-rather shows that the price of barley is now artificially raised by the bearing of the tax, and that its abolition would produce so vast a quantity of home-grown barley as to pre- vent a further advance. A season of scarcity might certainly arise, and we might be even unable to procure supplies from abroad. But if the farmer thus procured higher rates, is it not obvious that the price of beer would rise; and thus the increased demand would be repressed, and the price of barley fall back again ? The mistake of the political supporters of the Anti Malt Tax Association arises" from their viewing the landed interest in the gross, and not discriminating between different sorts of grain and different sorts of soil. The great change produced by the repeal of the corn laws has been the reduction m the price 01 wheat. ror a reason which will be made. plain enough in a minute or two, we may be sure, in spite of Sir Fitzroy Kelly's assertion, that every farmer has grown barley whose land enabled him to do so. The fact is, the grower of barley has sustained no loss from what has so seriously affected his wheat- growing neighbours. On comparing the prices of British wheat and barley for the fifty years ending 1842, we find that the price of barley was then in general about half or less than half the price of wheat. In 1820 the wheat average was 67s. 10d., that of barley 33s. lOd. In 1841 wheat was 64s. 4d;; barley 32s. lOd. But when we come to the period subsequent to the repeal of the Corn Laws a very different range of prices prevails. In 1849 wheat was 44s. 3d., barley, 27s. 9d. in 1853, wheat was 53s. 3d., barley, 33s. 2d. in 1857, wheat, 56s. 4d., barley, 42s. Id.; 1860, wheat, 53s. 3d., barley, 36s. 7d. in 1863, wheat, 44s. 9d., barley, 33s. lid. Instead, therefore, of barley having fallen in price since the repeal of the Corn Laws, it has more than maintained its position and instead of being only half the price of wheat it is now about three quarters that price. Thus the repeal of the malt duty would be putting the plaster on the wrong place. If any one requires relief it is the growers of wheat, whereas the bene- fit of the proposed alteration is expected to fall on the growers of barley. We have principally confined ourselves to con- sidering the subject in an agricultural point of view. Regarded in that of a consumer there is not much that need be said. Sir Fitzroy Kelly's picture of a working man brewing his own beer, and saving as much out of the money he weekly spends on liquor as actually to allow his family "'a bit ofmeat"(!) may have tickled the fancy- of a few Leicester enthusiasts, but will be set down by the working classes themselves as the sketch of a person grossly ignorant of their man- ners and position. There is no direct tax on beer, as there is on every other intoxicating drink and if the Malt Tax is to be regarded as an indirect tax, its abolition, while it would have a serious effect on the revenue, would powerfully affect the duty on spirits. To some extent, no doubt, the moral effects of favouring the less injurious bev- erage would be important. But we must remem- ber that beer has already been greatly favoured by the abolition of the direct duty upon it; and the Chancellor of the Exchequer is bound not to un- duly overweight any interest by unfairly under- weighting another. Briefly, the tax produces nearly six millions a year, and it is impossible to discover one which would be at once so lucrative and so ungrudgingly borne by the people ?

Cross examined by defendant—he did say that he would thrash six of his (defendant's) sort in his best day, his wife was there and wanted him to go home before any disturbance commenced. Mrs. Fredericks gave similar evidence, and also stated that she was very sorry any unpleasantness should arise between her husband and Mr. Parry, who had behaved very kind to them.

.BOARD OF HEALTH MEETING. This was an adjourned meeting of the above Board, held at the Board-room, in the Guild Hall, on monday last, at 7 o'clock p.m., for the purpose of hearing Mr. Kirk's report upon the plans of the New Water Works, when the following gentlemen were presentGeorge Cansick, Esq. Mayor Aldermen—David Thomas, Esq., and fJol. Lloyd V. Watkins, M.P. Councillors—Messrs. John Morris, Thomas Williams, John Griffiths, Phillip Bright, John Da vies, Lewis Hughes, and Thomas Trew. The Chairman having informed the meeting that the Town Clerk was seriously indisposed and not able to attend. The plans of the proposed Water Works were placed upon the table by Mr. Kirk, who read a lengthy report on them, after which a discussiou arose as to the utility of having two main pipes laid on the Bulwark, in reply to which Mr. Kirk said that he was of opinion that one would be sufficient, because the houses chiefly would be supplied from the main pipes in Glamorgan street and Lion street. "jr* Mr. Davies asked Mr. Kirk what quaiftity of water could be supplied from the proposed reservoir, and whether the quantity could not be reduced in case of a long draught. Mr. Kirk said that the proposed reservoir would supply the inhabitants, taking the papulation at 5000, with 30 gallons each per day for 14 days, and in case of a long draught that quantity could be considerably reduced. Mr. Bright asked Mr. Alderman Thomas what 9 terms had been made with Col. Pearce, with re- gard to compensation for Courtgilbert mill. Mr. Alderman Thomas in reply said that he was not aware what arrangements had been made, bitt, he beloved that Col. Pearce was desirous of accommodating them as much as possible, and in the event of no satisfactory terms being entered into it would be necessary that a storage reservoir be constructed to supply the iiiill.. --At- r. Kirk advised that the mill should be pur- chased or a lease taken by the Board, and if no arrangement could be made, a storage reservoir could be constructed in the Brook. Mr. Alderman Thomas suggested that tfre meeting should be adjourned, and that the Town Clerk be requested to ascertain whether Col. Pearce was inclined to fall in with their views in the matter. Mr. Bright said that he understood that all arrangements had been made, and considered it very unbusinesslike, as the question had been agitated so long, to find that they could not proceed. Mr. Morris said that he was fully satisfied and considered that they had the good wishes of Col. Pearce, but before they proceeded further, they ought to be satisfied that he could give them the interminable right to the water course, and thought, that Mr. Thomas's suggestion should be adopted. Alderman Col. Watkins expressed great dis- satisfaction at the absence of the Town Clerk, he had a very high opinion of him. but he considered it a very hard case, when, as a body, they came there on an important question like the present, they had no one to depend upon, he was grieved to hear of the Town Clerk,, illness, but if he could not attend himseli, he should send some one to represent him. Mr. Alderman Thomas regretted to hear of -the Town Clerk's illness, but he believed it was only tempory, he would again urge them to adjourn the meeting they all knew that Lord Tredegar had behaved very liberal, he was also aware that terms had been entered into with the Dean of Llandaff, through Mr. Edward Williams, Solicitor, but what further had been done he could not say. Mr. Bright said he thought it was premature to accept the report or proceed any further, and thought it only fair that Mr. Isaac Davies should know what the report contained, he would there- fore propose that the meeting be adjourned until monday next, for further information, and that Mr. Isaac Davies be requested to attend. Alderman Col. Watkins seconded the proposi- tion and the meeting separated.
CORONER'S INQUEST. On Friday evening last, Jan. 20th, an Inquest was held on the body of David Jones, formerly of the Britannia public house, in this town, before Henry Maybery, Esq., coroner, and a respectable jury, Mr. John Williams,, foreman. The Coroner addressed the jury and said that it was with great regret that they had met that evening to enquire into the cause of the death of poor David Jones, the report unfortunately was abroad that he had been ill treated, but he hoped nothing would trans- pire that night to prove anything of the kind, they were not to pay any attention to reports,, but to the evidence only. The jury having heard the evidence, considered it advisable, for general satis- faction, that a post mortem examination should take place, the meeting was then adjourned until monday evening, when the. jury reassembled to receive the evidence of Mr. North, who informed the jury that David Jones died from natural causes, i.e. disease of the heart, the jury returned their verdict accordingly.
BUILTH PETTY SESSIONS. These Sessions were held on Monday,—before H. G. Howell, Thos. Williams, and J. Vaughan, Esqrs.

William Angel, huckster, of Kington, appeared to a summons charged with following his ordinary calling, on Sunday the 8th inst., by travelling .*n^? Builth with his horse and cart, between gix and seven in the. evening. On his promising not to continue it, he was ordered to pay the costs. David Davies, of the Duffryn, Llanwrthwl, was summoned by Jane Morgan, of Bwlchkilli, Llan- afanfawr, with being the father of her illegitimate child. Defendant did not appear. Corroborated evidence having been given that defendant had paid £2 to complainant towards the support of the child.-An order was made for Is. 6d per week and costs. Before Thomas Williams and J. Vaughan, Esqs.

Elias Price, grocer, Cefnygorwidd, Llangam- march, appeared to a summons charged with kill- 1 ing a salmon in the river Irvon, in the parish of i Llangammarch, on the night of the 12th inst, From the evidence of John Williams, river watch-' r er, and P.C. John Evans, that between 12 and I j, o'clock on the night of the 11th inst., they were i on the river side, and saw a salmon speared and thrown to the defendant on the bank, who killed with large stick, they caught defendant and took the salmon from him, but the others, four of them, 1 ran away, tney all had their faces blacked, and had a light and spears with them. Defendant stated in defence, that seeing a light he went to .1 it, when some one threw a fish to him on the § bank, and that one of them ran up and put his hands on his face which caused it to be black, which defence was thought by the bench to make his case worse.—Fined £ 2 10s. and costs, amount- > ing to £3 7s. A LECTURE.—The Rev. L. Venables, of Clyn,, delivered an excellent lecture at the Builth Read- ing Room, on Tuesday evening last, to a very 1 large audience, the subject being our Queen ['and 2 Country at the present time."
