CARMARTHEN BOARD OF GUARDIANS. There was a good attendance of Guardians at their usual fortnightly meeting last Saturday at the Union Workhouse, when Mr John Hughes, F.R.C.S., presided. The Clerk reported the balance in hand to be E2,740 7s. Id. The audit of the Union was completed on the 12th inst., and was very satisfactory. A bill of Ri Is. to Dr. Jabez Thomas, oculist, Swansea, for an operation on Wni. Phillips, a pauper, partially blind, who had been sent to him by the Board, was ordered to be paid. The Clerk said that David Griffiths, Llandefeilog, declined to act as guardian of that parish after being elected. He had sent in a formal resignation, on the grounds that he had no time to properly discharge the duties of the parish, for the acceptance of the Local Govern- ment, which Board could accept it, if they thought the reasons strong enough, but they (the Board of Guardians) had nothing to do with it. If the parish required a new guardian, they had better pass a resolution to that effect in vestry. and they could then send it on to the Local Government Board. The Clerk was requested to write to the parishes of St. Ishmael and Llanddowror, as they had not paid their calls. A pauper lunatic boy in the House was ordered to be sent to the Asylum. It was resolved on the suggestion of the clerk that each of the relieving officers should have a copy of the Lunacy Act." The Chairman urged upon the guardians to go over the annual accounts supplied them, as they might be able to remedy many matters relating to the Union if they only tried. The Board then opened the tenders for supplying the House with goods, and resolved that they be supplied by the following :—Rounds of good fat ox or cow beef without the leg bone and the sticking piece at Gd. per lb, good beeves' heads at 6d. each, legs of mutton at 8d. per lb, and good beef suet at 3d. per lb, by Chas.
