LAMPETER COLLEGE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-It is more than astonishing to hear from the most unexpected and opposite quarters commenda- tions of your editorial comments last week upon Lampeter College. I am thankful that someone has had the courage to point out that the College will soon be unchurched and denationalized unless counteract- ing influences are brought to bear upon the authori- ties. As you pointed out, there is only one Welsh- man on the staff of the College, which is supposed to be the alma mater of more than half the clergy. Report saith that this poor solitary Welshman bas by no manner of means a pleasant or genial time of it. Brave, no doubt, but lonely he is as a pelican in the wilderness. But it is refreshing to find from your columns that his voice is to be heard at times. Let him take heart. He has a host of unknown friends and sympathisers, who will spare no effort to main- tain the national character of Lampeter. I rejoice that this national cry has been raised. It will do much real good. This year I ht'ard the remark, If you went to St David's College on one of its gala days yon would hear among its tutors and professors every brogue but Welsh." Your poor ears would be afflicted with the snuffling brogue of "Ould Oireland," the grating twang of the < Cockney, and the broadest Scotch which even hair education" (Welshmen call it higher education) has not eliminated. Let the staff advertise for a good, healthy Welsh brogue, and then their orchestra will be fully equipped. I fear, however, the present staff will not accept this valu- able suggestion, as they may think that a gracious Providence has only one function left for Welshmen to discharge, viz., to pay fees. I beg very deferen- tially to point out that Welshmen have still one strong faculty of imitation. Now, if the Welsh students at Lampeter imitate, as they certainly will, all these brogues, and blend them with their own native product, the sure result will be that when they go out into their parishes they will beao unintelligible and insufferable that Disestablishment Will be the only and immediate remedy for an afflicted people. May heaven, and your powerful pen. Mr Editor, avert such a visitation and judgment from our de- voted na.tion!-I am, &c, CYMRO.
