TOWN COUNCIL AND BOARD OF HEALTH MEETINGS. The above adjourned meetings were held at the Council Chambers in the Town Hall, on Monday last, when the following members were present John Prothero, Esq., mayor, in the chair. Coun- cillors-Messrs. John Morris, George Cansick, John Griffiths, John Davies, Phillip Bright, Thos. Trew, John Jones, Doctor Lucas, and William De Winton, Esq. S. B. Evans, Esq., town clerk, and Mr. John Kirk, surveyor. The Town Clerk said that he had received a communication from Mr. Marryatt relating to the fire-escape, and it would be supplied in about a month from that date. Mr. Davies said that although he was not pre- sent at the last meeting, he was happy to find that they had adopted the motion, and settled to have a fire-escape, that it was one of the most essential things required in the town. Mr. Phillips then read the minutes of the last meeting, and informed the Board that he had called at Mr. Cobb's office several times, about the £ 210 from the Markets Committee, but he was continu- ally from home. The Town Clerk said that Mr. Cobb had paid the money that was paid into the Bank, and that account would appear in the Treasurer's account, therefore as he did not receive the money from Mr. Cobb, he did not give a receipt. Mr. Cobb had ma.de certain deductions also that he did not consider himself justified in giving a receipt for the whole amount without the matter had been before the Board. The deductions were made for the ex- pense of repairing the wall near the Priory, but not receiving a receipt for the one amount, did not justify the not paying of another that was due, but he was fully prepared and satisfied to give a receipt for the full amount with the permission of the Board. Mr. Davies Would it not be far better for the Board to pay Mr. Cobb any amount that was due to him and let him pay the Board what was due to them. The Town Clerk informed the Board that Mr. Cobb would be at home on Wednesday next, and he would see him on the point. Mr. Bright: In reference to the footpath in the Wattou, there were a great many of the inhabitants of the town who were in the habit of going that way for a walk, and the ashes had only been laid a portion of the way, and they would like it to be done so far as the walk extended, not only a por- tion of the way, so long as they had to do it at their own expense. When the matter was brought before the Board, it was understood that it was to to be done by subscription, and not at the public ex- peiise more than that the mayor offered the loan of a boat, that was not taken, and a large amount of the expense incurred was paid for haulage. He would therefore ask the surveyor to provide the Board at present, or at the next meeting, with the particulars of the outlay. He would also ask the town clerk if there was an order made for Mr. Kirk to get the work done at the expense of the ratepayers, and was there an entry on the minute book to that effect 1 The Town Clerk There was no order made for the work to be done at the expense of the Board. When Mr. Bass introduced the matter to the Board, he said that many gentlemen had been with him and offered to subscribe towards the re- pairing of the path, if the Board would not do it the Board did not consider it their duty to repair it, that the footpath had been made by the deposi- ting of the scrapings off the road, and belonged more to the County Roads Board than the Corpo- ration. It was understood at the time that Mr. Bass would collect the amount of the outlay, but that the surveyor should superintend the work, and if the corporation did spend anything on it, it was to be a very small amount. The Surveyor He understood it to be an order of the Board. He could not supply them then with the particulars of the expenditure, but would do so by the next meeting. The following report was then read from Mr. Superintendent Lee, concerning the Fire Engine and Fire Escape. Q Police Station, 18th June, 1866. To the Mayor, Aldermen, and Councillors of the Borough of Brecon. GENTLEMEN-,—In compliance with the instruc- tions given to me at your last meeting, I beg to report that I consider the employment of eight persons a sufficient number, in addition to the po- lice force, to constitute the proposed Fire Brigade of the Borough. After the formation of the brigade, every mem- ber should, without delay, make himself perfectly acquainted with the fire-engine and escape, for which purpose they should at first assemble at short intervals, and after becoming familiar with their duties, they should meet together for practice once a quarter. Each of the eight members should be supplied with a helmet and a Guernsey jacket—the helmets cost 12s. 6d. and the Guernseys 7s. each. The usual allowance (exclusive of pay when called out) to each member is X-2 per annum. For services rendered on the occasion of a fire, the or- dinary pay is 5s. per man in the town, and 10s. in the country. The Fire Insurance Offices generally bear all expenses by a fire brigade incidental to a fire. I have selected seven persons whom I believe most eligible for the appointment, and who reside within a very short distance of the police station, viz :—Mr. John James, painter and plumber; Mr. Albert Watkins, painter and plumber Mr Wat- kin George, tiler and plasterer Mr. David Parry, house carpenter; Mr. Henry F. Bennett, painter and gilder Mr. John Price, smith Mr. Francis Llewelyn, tailor. The eighth person I have not selected. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, HENRY LEE, Superintendent of police. Mr. Cansick He thought there should be a captain appointed to take charge of the engine and fire-escape, and to manage the whole affair. Mr. Davies said that there were many large places where there was no fire-escape, and he was happy to think the town of Brecon was getting one. There were two lives lost the other day in a large town like Hull, for want of a fire-escape, and he begged, to move that the report should be adop- ted, that the public money could not be expended for a better cause. Mr. Griffiths seconded the proposition.—Agreed to. Mr. Cansick: He would suggest the propriety of applying to the various Insurance Companies, through their agents, to ask them to contribute something towards supporting the movement, he believed they would if applied to in proper course. The Town Clerk read a communication from Mr. Bates, the manager of the Castle Hotel, asking the Board to do some repairs on the south approach to the Hotel, which was in very bad repair. Mr. Morris Was not the Castle Hotel the pro- perty of Lord Tredegar, who used to receive the tolls from parties taking pigs there for sale. Mr. Cansick The Castle Company was laying- out a great deal of money in improving the neigh- bourhood, and he would move that the work should be done in a substantial manner. Mr. Jones said that there were a great number of aged people in the neighbourhood, who were going to places of worship, and he was in the habit of going that way about four times every Sunday, and the large stones there were very bad. The Board was spending money continually in improving other parts of the town, and he considered it nothing but right that some improvemt should be made in that locality, therefore he begged to second the lz!1 motion. Mr. Morris asked the Board if the county had not to do with it for 100 yards from the bridge. After some further conversation it was mmni- mously-agreed that the amount of the cost should be ascertained by the next meeting. The Mayor informed the Board that Mr. Cle- ment applied to them to remove a closet belonging to the police station. D Mr. Cansick: He thought the Board ought to meet Mr. Clement in the best way they could, that in widening the street he was very much im- proving the place. The Surveyor, in reply to the Board, flair! that it could be very easily removed, but that it was not any nuisance. Mr. Morris As a Board of Health they ought to remove anything in the shape of a nuisance or inconvenience to any person. Mr. Clement, (who was called in) in reply to the Board He would remove the closet further down at his own expense, provided he should have the bit of ground it stood upon, so that the property may be in a line. The Surveyor, in reply to the Board The re- moving of the closet and the erecting of another, would cost more than the bit of ground was worth. It was unanimously agreed that Mr. Clement's request be granted. Mr. Bright: Being upon the subject of the Police Station, he considered it full time they should come to some settlement with the Neath and Brecon Railway Company for that portion of the garden which they had appropriated to their own use. The sum of £ 84 had been paid into Messrs. Wilkins and Go's Bank, the amount stated by their own valuer, but far below the amount named by the surveyor to the Board. He had been informed that Mr. Dixon was prepared to pay more for it than they had paid in the bank, therefore it was high time the Board should move in the matter. There was no fear of any law expenses arising out of the matter, therefore the sooner the better it was settled. The Town Clerk They could not take any steps in the matter until he got a written valuation from the surveyor who had made the valuation for the Board. The Surveyor was accordingly requested to sup- ply the Town Clerk with the written valuation to take steps in the matter at once. Mr. Morris The Finance Committee met for the purpose of examining Mr. Farmer's accounts, and found that the amounts to be collected were as follows :—Water rate, S306 8s. lOd. arrears. X3 10s. 5d. amount to be collected of general district rate, X,920 12s. Id.; amount paid in bank, X757 13s. lid. Farmer in hand on account of collecting, £8 13s. 4d. vacancies, £28 16s. 5d.; arrears, £ 25 8s. 5d. and Farmer had retained the sum of £ 8 13s. 4d. for collecting arrears, and he himself allowing them to become arrears the committee therefore considered that Farmer should be applied to to pay the same forthwith. On going over the arrears, they found the names of many respectable people, that if applied to once, he was sure the money would have been paid imme- diately, he would mention no names, but he would mention the corporation themselves, for £2 odd, they had never been applied to.—Report adopted. Mr. Bright moved that the surveyor should in- struct the men who swept the streets, that it would be their duty to sweep the Captains' Walks when reqnirecl.- Uwmimously agreed to. Mr. Davies He was not aware that Mr. Bright was going to bring that matter forward, but he really was glad, and he wished to say that he was very much pleased with the trees planted on the Captains' Walks by the mayor, they were growing well, and the very substantial railing which was put to protect them did credit, and, as one member of the Board, he begged to thank him. The Mayor The lower portion of the Hall had almost become valueless, and he thought, if the Board come to some arrangement with Mr. Cobb, by putting windows around, and a little further outlay, it would make a first-class corn-exchange, that instead of hunting for a person all day long from one public-house to another, he could be found at his stall at once he hoped the matter would be well considered by the next meetine. Mr. Cansick Mr. Handiey and Mr. Webb were the only two buyers at present, and were obliged to go to Hereford to buy a great deal of grain. at present. S Mr. Trew: Men from Crickhowell, Llandovery, and many other places came here to buy continu- ally, but they did not know where to look for any- body. Mr. Davies: From Mr. Cansick's observation, he considered that if they had a corn-exchange Mr. Webb nor Mr. Handiey would want to go to Here- ford or elsewhere to buy their grain. The Mayor: There were a great many people who would occupy a stall for about £2 a-year in preference to going from one public-house to another; for instance, there were a great many agents at present selling artificial manures, who, no doubt would occupy stalls, provided matters could be arranged with Mr. Cobb it was only a notice for consideration at the next meeting. Mr. Bright: On the minute book of the Inspec- tor of nuisances, there was a report calling atten- tion to the stagnant water in Silver-street and Back-street, also stating that the gutters should be swept every other day. Doctor Lucas They had settled to have a fire- escape at Brecon, which had never scarcely been wanted in Brecon, and no one could be opposed to it, but he could assure the Board that there were a great many more lives lost through not having better drainage. He had been informed by the surveyor that one portion of Llanfaes had been done at a cost of £:300, and it had been settled by the Board, some three years ago that X800 were to be expended for draining Llanfaes, and was not Silver-street and Back-street included? (The Surveyor: Yes.) Then it would not cost much to drain the dead water into the main sewer. He had gone that way very frequently, and always saw the water laving stagnant in the streets. Mr. Bright: He had called the attention of the Board to the subject, it was a very important one. It was not very often that he visited the neigh- bourhood, but he should thÏJlk it must be in a bad state and most injurious to the health of those re- siding in the neighbourhood. The surveyor had proper instructions from the Board to get the streets properly swept. The neighbourhood of Baiieyglaes was in a very state, the Maddrell was stopped up there, and when the warm weather came, it would be very serious. The Surveyor: The streets in Llanfaes are swept every other day at present, but they are no sooner swept than the inhabitants throw water and fill them up again. As to the Maddrell, the Neath and Brecon Railway Company placed gratings to prevent rubbish getting into the culverts, and also stopped the water for them to get it to make mor- tar, but they left an overflow. He did not think the Board would object tc their having the water for that purpose. On the motion of Mr. Davies, seconded by Mr. Morris, it was unanimously agreed that Back-street andJSilver-street should be swept every other day. Mr. Davies: He felt pleased with Doctor Lucas's suggestions respecting the drainage of the town, and he would support any measure brought for- ward by Dr. Lucas he did not see why the streets in question could not be drained and form part of the general system of drainage. The Surveyor Both Back-street and Silver- street were to form a part of the general drainage in Llanfaes. Mr. Trew moved, and Doctor Lucas seconded, that the surveyor be instructed to report at the next meeting what the draining of those streets would cost. The Town Clerk read a communication from a club at Llanfihangel, stating that the members would like to invest £ 600 or £ 1000 on the Brecon New Water Works, after which he called the at- tention of the Board to the compensation reservoir to be made for the Cilwhilbert mill. Mr. Davies said that it was as he always thought, that there would be something to come, why the matter should be rose then he could not see, as it was understood by the Board that the reservoir was to be done simultaneous with the other work, and that Mr. Davies, the engineer, was to supply the Board with plans and specifications. Mr. Bright moved that the surveyor should sup- ply the Board at the next meeting with the neces- sary plans and specifications.—Carried. The Town Clerk informed the Board that the interest on S800 was due to Miss Lloyd, Aberllech. Mr. Bright moved, and Mr. Trew seconded, that the town clerk be instructed to pay it, and also that the Board should pay £ 100 a-year to pay off the amount.—Agreed to. The meeting was then adjourned until that day fortnight.
NEATH AND BRECON RAILWAY. On Monday last, Mr. Dickson the contractor, with his usual liberality, gave a dinner at the Angel Inn, to the platelayers on the occasion of the engine entering Brecon the first time. About 95 sat down to a substantial repast, which did credit to mine host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins. After the cloth was removed, Mr. Caul- field the engineer, was not only unanimously, hut enthusiastically voted to the chair, which he filled to the gratification of all. A great number of 9 toasts were drunk, and those of the Contractor and Engineer's with deafening applause. We are glad to bear testimony to the orderly manner in which the workmen conducted tnemselves throughout, the workmen conducted tnemselves throughout, not one intoxicated, notwithstanding the cicrw da imbibed. It is expected the line will be opened for passenger tiafhc four months hence, when a good champagne dinner will be given. good champagne dinner will be given.
UNITED KINGDOM ALLIANCE. A public 1:1cting, to explain the objects and policy of the allIance, is announced to take place' at the Town Hau on Tuesday evening, June 26th, when the chair will be taken at eight o'clock by the Mayor, and the meeting will be addressed by the Rev. Thomas Levi of Morriston, Mr. W. L. Daniel, of Merthyr, and the Hon. Owen Bromley, from America. These gentlemen attend as a de- putation from the Gent and Morganwg Temper- ance and Prohibitive Association, of which Mr. Daniel is this year the President. Some few years ago, large and interesting meetings were held in connection with the temperance movement in Bre- con. A good opportunity will now be afforded to the public of becoming acquainted with the objects and principles of the Permissive Bill, and we doubt not large numbers will avail themselves of it. The admission will be free.
CHRIST'S COLLEGE, BRECON. On Tuesday last, the breaking up of the above school for the holidays was celebrated, as usual, by awarding the various prizes to the scholars accord- ing to their merit. The Rev. R. W. P. Davies, Archdeacon of Brecon, occupied the chair; there were also present the Mayor of Brecon, Col. Pearce,. K.H., Doctor Lucas, &c., with a large number of ladies and gentlemen. The following is the report of the examiner :— June 19, 1866. My Lords and Gentlemen,—I have once niore the honour of presenting you a report upon the school, of which you are governors, and which yoLt have a second time invited me to examine. As might be expected, the school being undej the superintendence of the same accon-I lishe scholar, and having the instruction of the same able teachers as in the previous year, my last repor' might with little modification stand for this, and 1 think that little modification is on the side of ill" provement. The changes that have been made ia the subjects of study in the upper school are my opinion extremely iudicious, and the books re are such as the age and attainments of the pup"s enable them easily to appreciate and to sympathIZe with. I could wish, as I did in the last year, that the boys in the different forms exhibited niore quickness, readiness, and facility in the analyst both of words and sentences, and in some of the forms I think the method of parsing is susceptible of much improvement. A large number of the pupils displayed a vety creditable acquaintance with Euclid and with ele- mentary Algebra. On the whole, I consider tlle young students to be very well taught, and it W;5 a pleasure to me to observe in some, whose ex,,Illl" nation of last year had not passed from my menioty* very considerable improvement. In the sixth form, Bowcott passed the best i- amination, and I recommend him for the p)'i?,° given by the Bishop of St. David's. I think too that he is best entitled, in respect of attainments, to an exhibition at the University* should one be assigned. In the case of the Bishop of Llandaff's prize, I should consider its division between Bowcott and Arthur Williams just and equitable, as their e*' animation was very nearly equal both in go0<* points and in imperfections, and the examination of the other pupils was by no means so good aS their's. In the fifth form I place J. Williams first; In the fourth form, Henry Davies first, and Price se- cond in the third form, E. Davies first. My examination of the second and first fonllS was too brief, from the pressure of time, for me to tiust any that I could have made. fhe second form exhibited intelligence and readiness i'l* mental arithmetic, and the first was composed little boys, who seemed most anxious and willi11^ to learn. I conclude, as last year, with expressing earnest hope, and I may add my confident expec" tation, that Christ's College may prove to be :l centre and source of moral and intellectual cultlh and improvement of benefits, of the best and Iligh- est kind, within and beyond the sphere of its owD immediate neighbourhood. I have the honor to be, My Lords and Gentlemen, Your faithful and obedient servant, CHARMS WILLIAMS, D.V- To the Governors of Christ's College, Brecon. The following is the list of prizes and recomnieB' dations:— gjfExhibition of S40 for three years -Bowcott. Bishop of St. David's Classical Prize-BOlccott. Bishop of Llandaff's ) < Bowcott.

AFTER the very slender majorities which the Government were able to secure in the early stages of the Reform Bill, the defeat which they have now sustained will excite but iittle surprise. From the first it had been apparent that if the measure were to be carried at all, could only be passed by a succession of close divisions, and consequently that at any moment the result which we have now witnessed might actually happen. The rock on which the wreck took place at last was unforeseen, but it has proved effectual in securing the catastrophe. Lord Dunkellin's amendment possessed the great advantage that it raised a clear and de- finite issue, concerning which there could be no misunderstanding, and no dispute as to terms. The question was simply whether the j new borough franchise should be founded upon clear yearly value," as proposed by the Go- vernment, or upon "rateable value," as moved by the noble lord. No doubt the alteration was of an important character as affecting the scope of the bill, for every one is aware that the rateable value of a house is always below the rental, and that sometimes there is a con- siderable margin between the two. As the sum proposed by the Government for the limit of the franchise remained unaltered by Lord Dunkellin's amendment, its practical effect was to raise that limit from £ 7 to 19, or there- abouts, and so to make but a trifling reduction from the present £ 10 franchise in boroughs. In order that the admission of voters should remain as extensive as that proposed by the Government, it would have been necessary to have accompanied the alteration of the charac- ter" of the franchise from rentable to rateable value by another alteration of its amount from 17 to 15 or £ 6; but this, of course, it was not the object of the promoters of the amend- ment to do, and the Government bowed at once to the defeat without raising further con- test upon the point. Few will dispute the wisdom, under the cir- cumstances, of the course adopted with regard to the bill, for as it was clearly impossible to carry it in the face of such strong opposition, it would have been but waste of the time of the House to have attempted to proceed with it any further. But what may be the precise result as far as the Government themselves are concerned, is as yet a matter of doubt. It will be observed that in the statements made by the Ministers to Parliament on the night following the defeat, the simple phrase was used, that, as the result of the Cabinet's deliberations, communications had been made to her Ma- jesty." Nothing was said about resignations .1 Z, Z3 having been tendered, although this may have been the fact. And, again, it must be noted that the intimation given by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the night of the division as to what would be its result, if adverse, was simply that it would be taken by the Govern- ment as "incompatible with the progress of the bill." It is unfortunate that tne temporary visit of her Majesty to Balmoral at this juncture should necessarily involve several days' delay before the country can be made fully a ware, of the ef- fect of the" communications." Both Houses of Parliament have been adjourned until Mon- day, when it will be the duty of Ministers to recount what has transpired. The announce- ment will be anxiously awaited, for the cir- cumstances of the time both at home and abroad render it highly necessary that as little obstruction as possible should be given to the conduct of public affairs, and equally necessary that a strong and firm Government should be at the helm. With all commercial affairs in an unsettled state, and some of our markets but just recovering from panic, even a few Z, days' interregnum in the Ministry would have a mischievous effect; while if we look abroad we see every reason to desire that at the pre- sent time the attitude of England and its rulers before the world should be firm and composed. It is certainly no time for conflicts of party, and if they must arise, let them be postponed for a more convenient occasion.
BRECON. BOROUGH PETTY SESSIONS. The Sessions were held on Monday last, at Guild Hall, before John Prothero, Esq., Mayor, Joseph Joseph, Esq., and James Williams, Esq. Evan Powell, Cemetery, was summoned by the Guardians of the Brecon Union, for the non-main- r tenance of his father, he being in an efficient posi- tion to do so. Mr. D. W. J. Tliomas appeared on behalf of the Guardians, and Mr. T. Bishop ap- peared for Powell. Mr Thomas informed their -worships that his in- structions from the Board of Guardians were, that Powell was earning the sum of 15s a-week regular- ly, and there were a great number of ratepayers that earned less wages, had to contribute towards the support of paupers in general. Mr. Bishop said that the defendant was in the employ of the Burial Board, who selected him to look after the cemetery, he did so in a most creditable manner, and having to make a respectable appear- ance, that amount was scarcely sufficient to keep up his position. In reply to the Bench the defendant said that during the whole of last year he had not received one sovereign as perquisites, although several par- ties had promised him something for keeping the graves in proper order. But as regarded his father, he was quite willing to do all that lay in his power towards the maintenance of his father, and did so then, he gave him a great deal of his food After a little further conversation between their worships and the learned advocates, an order was made for one shilling per week. John Casey was summoned by Mary Buckley, charged with inciting to commit a breach of the peace, on Sunday the 21st day of May last. Mr. W. Games appeared for the defendant. Mary Buckley deposed that she was in church on the 21st of May last, the defendant sat in the seat behind her, he pointed her out to the whole congregation in the middle of divine service and said to her "you ought to be ashamed of yourself to be where my mother ought to be," there was something else said, but she could not say what it was, because she was taken by surprise. Cross-ex- amined by Mr. Games,—The defendant was quite a stranger to her, he was at her house in September last, she thought Casey had told her the defendant was his son, she did not know whether Mrs. Casey was alive or not, an agreement had been made by Mr. David Thomas about six years ago, and she had got the paper in the house, she had lived with Mr. Casey about 17 years, and had six children, but they were all dead, she did not know that Mrs. Casey was alive, Mr. Casey was in the seat at the time and another young woman, the defen- dant was in her seat on the Sunday previous when she went in but he went out, she did not flounce by him the Sunday before he insulted her, the de- fendant attended the church but she did not know whether he was a member or not, she did not hear the defendant say his mother was probably beg- ging her dinner that day. Catherine Callan deposed that she was in church with Mrs. Casey on the day in question, they were in the same seat, the defendant sat in the seat be- hind them, she heard defendand say to complai- nant "you ought to be ashamed of yourself for being in the place where my mother ought to be, that she was brobably begging her dinner at that time, the priest looked round but did not say anything. The case was dismissed, it being the duty of the minister to give the information if any offence was committed in a place of worship, but their Worships cautioned the defendant as to his future conduct.
