RULE OWEN & SON have received instructions from the Mortgagee to offer for SALE by AUCTION at the Rutzen Arms Hotel, Narberth, on Thursday, the 23rd July, 1891, at 2 o'clock precisely, in one or more lots, the important FREEHOLD PROPERTY known as the LAMPETER HOUSE ESTATE, in the Parish of Lampeter Velfry, comprising the modern Family Residence of LAMPETER HOUSE, with extensive and suitable Out-buildings, Gardens, Shrubberies, Lawns, and Plantations; the valuable FARMS of BIG HOUSE and DANLLAN, with other small Holdings; and several COTTAGES and GARDENS in the Village of Lampeter Velfrey the whole containg about 210 ACRES, in a ring fence, of some of the richest and most productive land in the County.

TO OUR CORRESPONDENTS. Jocko the Jester," Argus," our corres- pondent's letter re Porthyrhyd Chapel," and several items of district news unavoidably held over.
THE VISCOUNT EMLYN. Viscount Emlyn has consented to become Conservative candidate for South Manchester at the General Election. An announcement to the above effect was made long since in some of our contemporaries, but as a matter of fact the consent of his lordship was only given on Satur- day last to a deputation that waited upon him. The six Manchester seats are at present equally divided between the two parties, who each express a laudable desire to push the other off the ground. The fight will be severe, and we cannot but feel proud that the Conservative electors of so important a town as Manchester have chosen Viscount Emlyn as their leader. We wish him every success.
LAND NATIONALIZATION. The Land Nationalization Van continues its progress, and its occupants repeat their stereo- typed speeches with monotonous regularity. Llandyssil proved the most successful meeting of the tour. Quite a large audience met the Sylvan Deity, who became confidential, and electrified them by the astounding fact that he had actually known pieces of common lands to be stolen. Prodigious It would, however, be much more to the point if the gentleman with a classical name would condescend to further particulars, and would fix the locality where this crime has been committed, so that the offenders may be brought to justice. It is all very well to raise a cheer by a general statement of this kind, but every speaker should be prepared to substantiate his assertions if he has any care for his own repu- tation. It will be an easy matter for Dr. Pan Jones to prove his case. Had he taken a wdk over the commons in the neighbourhood of Llan- dyssil he would have seen many enclosed plots, for whiph the present owners can show no title beyond 12 years' possession, for which no CUll- sideration was ever paid, no conveyance executed. The holders of these lands constitute our poorest class of freeholders. Is it to them that Dr. Pan -I ones alludes ? We think not, but strongly sus- pect that the worthy doctor was having a quiet shot at some one nearer home. We all know he is fond of a joke, and, if we are not much mis- taken, the gentleman who presided at one of the meetings can show no better title to part of his estates than that given by the statutory law of quiet possession of property that originally belonged to the poor of the parish. It will afford a grand opportunity, when the van reaches North Wales, to enlarge upon the enthusiasm displayed by the Cardiganshire freeholders, who even pre- sided at the meetings, &c. No need to enter into unpleasant details at that distance. Mean- time the gaudily decorated vehicle rolls along our roads unnoticed by the class most interested in its progress. The farmers are conspicuous by their absence from the meetings. We think they are wrong to offer the cold shoulder. They should attend and hear all the good things that are in store for them when the Pandemon. we mean the Millenium has arrived, and they become State tenants at a higher rent than they are now paying. It will be a proud day for Farmer Jones when he becomes a State tenant," and no longer drinks Squire Smith's health at the audit dinner. A little time will probably elapse before this great change takes place, and meantime Farmer Jones must not be surprised when he calls on Squire Smith and asks for a new barn, a field to be drained, or a weir to be made, to find that that gentleman hesitates to lay out further capital upon land that is to be taken from him. Politically, the Land Nationali- zation Society with its van and its speakers may be a brilliant idea, though we expect it has over- reached itself. If, however, it met with any success, the result could only be the withdrawal of all capital from the land at a time when the outlay of capital is urgently required. No farmer or landowner, who is in his senses, would lay out money on improvements of any kind trusting in the exceedingly visionary compensation hinted at by the Society. Mr Hyder the Secretary says he finds no fault with landlords but only blames the system the vicious speeches of his companions however, belie his words. What have landlords done to merit the opprobrium heaped on them by these speakers ? Is it a great crime to invest money in the purchase of land, receiving perhaps, 2j per cent. interest, and liable at all times to further unremunerative outlay in keeping the property in repair. It is very well for Messrs. Hyder, Jones and Addison, to drive through the country, casting hungry eyes upon the property of others judging by their utterances they can have but a faint conception of the capital and labour expended in bringing the land into a cultivate- able condition. An inspection of any well-kept estate book would astonish many of u as to the amount laid out in improving and maintaining properties during the last 100 years. The value of the land itself is as nothing compared with its artificial value (in most instances), at the present moment. The impracticable scheme of the Society would place the tenant farmer in a very unfortunate position, while to the landowner it would mean simple robbery.
THE PEACE OF CARDIGANSHIRE. The political semi-religious preacher and agitator has long been engaged in this county fomenting an insurrection against the payment of tithe. The elements have been diligently and carefully watched and developed with a result that the storm has broken out with varying force in different parts of the county which reached the climax of scandalous outrages on public decency, honesty, and peace in the now notorious parish of Penbryn. It is not within our present province to deal with these gross acts of an organised mob of rough and ignorant people drawn from the pulpits, the diaconate and the Communicants of the Nonconformist Chapels of the neighbourhood. We wish to draw the attention of our readers to Mr. Com- missioner Bompas' clear exposition of the law of unlawful assemblies as well as the serious action which the Court of Quarter Sessions felt bound, in the interest of peace and liberty, to take, and which tribunal, as the learned Com- missioner pointed out, is mainly responsible for the peace of the county. We do not know of a single tithe sale held in Penbryn, or on the oppo- site side of Pembrokeshire where the crowd collected were not clearly acting in a criminal manner, and where the ringleaders, at least, should have been promptly arrested and marched off to the nearest cell. If," said the Commis- sioner in his charge to the grand jury at Lampeter on Tuesday, three or more persons shall assemble and combine together for any purpose whatever, and under such circumstances of violence, threats, tumults, numbers, display of arms, or otherwise as is cal- culated to create terror and alarm in the Queen's subjects, such persons shall be deemed to be guilty of an unlawful assembly." That the crowds that gathered at these sales come within this exposition of the law is amply proved by even a tenth of the evidence given on oath on Tuesday by the bailiff and the two men, who attended as buyers at the recent sales in Penbryn. At Ver- wig, as will be remembered, a determined attack was made on the body of the bailiff, and rotten eggs and other missiles were freely thrown at him and his friends without any efforts made by the police to put a stop to the same. In the face of all this, we are thankful to the learned Commissioner, himself a Baptist, for his succinct enunciation of the law and the fearless manner in which he pointed out the criminality of the anti-tithers in the pursuit of their unholy combination. The evidence of the Chief Con- stable as to the demeanour of these crowds is entirely unsupported save by the testimony of those friends of his on the Standing Joint Com- mittee, whom alone he is careful to summon to the Sales. As the Court of Quarter Sessions pointed out to him on Tuesday, a very grave responsibility now devolves upon him, and it is to be devoutly hoped he will be able to seriously realise the same. Should unlawful crowds again be permitted to assemble with no other excuse for their presence than rendering im- possible the carrying out of the law he will stand in a grave position and, as Mr Willis Bund pointed out, he liable to be proceeded against by indictment. It is useless to talk about the inter- ference, in the cause of peace, of those persons who are in open sympathy with this dishonest campaign. These men would bring all law and constitutional practice into utter discredit, and would abrogate the very safe guards of the liberty of the Queen's subjects to demand their own quietly and peacefully.
THE SEASON AT ABERSTWYTH. The season is beginning at Aberystwyth, and soon there will not be a house to let. When the schools begin to break up Aberystwyth rejoices in the general home-coming, and receives her full trains and heavy paterfamilias with pleasure, and provision ready. Dinner laid, guests are ex- pected, full of bubbling excitement to see all that is to be seen, the latest improvements, and the last addition which was talked about before; for the visitor comes here year after year, to be filled and braced with the fresh breeze that blows up across the Atlantic, right away from the Bahamas, the Bermudas, and the Azores. They come in wonderful attire from the train out of smoky Sheffield and grimy Birmingham, from Liverpool and Manchester, and the great towns of America. One wheels his go-cart, a boy, with a bundle of rugs on the box. Another comes laden with family bags and umbrellas, and a brown paper parcel, while the big baggage is brought by the "bus." It is said that the popu- lation of the town rises from six to ten and even twelve thousand in August and September. Here we watch the man of affairs, keen at his counting house, hard in his business relations, and self-subdued in the earnest daily struggle for ascendancy, lolling at ease in flannels and old coats, with a happy indifference to ap- pearance, looking at life from a disinterested but pleasant point of view, laughing like a boy, and watching the gay world go by from the loop holes of retreat. Not dignified, not even sedate, but enjoying himself tremendously, So we see the buxom female, with her matronly bonny brown face, full of anxious solicitude for the numerous and differently constituted members of her household, who have all their peculiar dis- positions and characteristic inclinations from the brat who will tumble into the big pool, to the wild young woman who insists upon following her brothers up the rocks. This is her hour, and the hour of much care and responsibility. And then there are the countless little children running about like chickens, chasing flies, hurry- ing here with bucket and spade, panting, and planning at the most important principles of sand- craft. A castle to be built, a lighthouse, a sea to be let in, a canal on the most approved plan Colonies are projected, promontories and peninsulas under wise advice, and counsel shrewdly given. The fat little legs, brown with the sun, and white socks covered with sand, and frocks all draggled and damp. Such fun, such frolic, and oh, such rollicking peals of laughter And if a shower of tears comes by, the merry black eyes are laughing behind, and presently burst out the brighter. So summer rolls by on the shore. This is a reflection which Carmarthen may see of Aberystwyth if it looks in the mirror to-day. But the view depends on the angle of aspect, and the eye only sees that which it carries with it the power of seeing, aud, not that which it expects to see and if it only sees it- self, it may be very beautiful.

SOCIETY AND PERSONAL. My dearest Iva,—How pleased I was that I accepted my invitation to Tivyside last week. You missed such a lot, you obstinate girl, and I wouldn't have exchanged dances with you last Wednesday for anything. I pictured you trying your hardest to get one good turn in your London ball room, and stniled to myself as I new up and down to the strains of one of the jolliest polkas I've ever danced to. By the way, you must get it. "Tally-ho by name you'll love it as I do. No^ 111 try and tell you something about it. Well I don't think I've ever met a more charming hostess than Mril Saunders-Davies. The way she looked after all her guests and her kindness to everybody struck me very much. And, oh Iva, such a lovely room to dance ill, and the floor was in tip-top order. It beats the one at Slidemore all to fits (excuse the expression). I was lucky in having splendid partners in fact, to tell you the truth, I didn't notice one bad dancer in the roo, and all so nice. None of your pump handle busi- ness, with square elbows, which I've got so tired of. Oh, everything was such a treat. I noticed all the frocks (for your benefit, my dear, you always ask what everyone wore) were very pretty and fresh, but as you will be none the wiser if I tell you the names of the ladies, I'll reserve that until we meet, and mention only the gowns now. Our hostess wore a beautiful dress, with oh such diamonds !-made my mouth water (by the way, that reminds me the ices were most delicious, really tasting of strawberries; you hadn't to get up any imagination, like I've had to do so often this season), and a black and white frock 1 liked very much, it did suit its wearer to perfection, I thought. A grey and primrcse gown of most lovely texture was worn with beautiful diamonds. There was a pink silk which took my fancy, a lovely shade of pink worn by a Brunette it was most becoming, and beautifully made. I know you're longing to know how, but I can t enter into any such particulars here, or this letter will be turned into a Lady's Pictorial j" besides, I'm in great haste, going to start for a pic-nic in half an hour. I think of all the frocks there a white satin was the one which fitted best really it looked as though it had been moulded on. I couldn't take my eyes off that gown; it was a shay dover." Let me see now, what else. Oh, yes a sage green trimmed with gold braid and fringe was very pretty, and there were a few blacks (but I don't know of what material), two or three pretty white, a blue and pink, and two sisters all in blue. I saw one with yards of balay, euse trailing after her, and I felt for her deeply, as mine was in the same condition, so "I knew what it was, etc. I never was in such sets of Lancers, and did nothing but laugh. Everyone lost everyone, and our spirits, which were tremendous before, fairly over- flowed, and we laughed and laughed till the gun- powder ran out of the heels of one's boots. My gracious how I enjoyed it; and once more I thought of you, poor dear, with your London smile on, talking to some youth, and hiding a yawn behind your fan- Oh, don't you tell me, I've seen you do it scores of times. And it's an every-day occurrence with me in town. We had the most sumptuous supper, and Mr Hulley played for us. He is something like a musician, I can tell you. I don't think I was ever so sorry to come to the 21st dance before in my life as I was on Wednesday, and that's saying a great deal, for I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it, and I only hope I shall be asked here again, for Tivyside is the best place I've ever had the luck to stay in. Everyone is so kind, so cheery, and such dancers. I wish I could just bring down some of our Dullshire friends to show them what s what. Best love to all, and don't bother about me. I don't want to go to Hornbury. I'm sick of the place, and country for me in preference. There is a wedding on this week. I'll give you an account of that in another letter. I hear it's to be a very oTand ^n'fc Nettie engaged to the "Dook"°yet! ohtrd better look sharp.—Your loving VARA.

An American paper, the Denver Republican, dated the 1st inst., under the heading, "The Welsh to the front," gives an account of a brilliant reception given by the local Cambrian Society, in which it was announced that the society intended to pro- duce Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial by Jury." The paragraph goes on to say, "Music is only one branch of the society's functions, but it is well at- tended to. Professor Gwillym Thomas is the leader in the operatic venture. With a magnificent bass voice, there is but little in the depths of the musical art but what he has fathomed. He is well sustained by solo talent, and has a chorus of fifty in hand for the occasion." Our readers by this time probably have seen who the heading refers to. Professor Gwillym Thomas is the son of our respected townsman, Mr JobC Thomas, tailor, Lammas street, and about IS years ago worked as compositor at THE JOURNAII Office.
