CORRESPONDENCE. L We do not hold ourselves responsible for the Opinions of our correspondents.] THE MORAL ASPECT OF PONTY- PRIDD ON SUNDAYS. I I To Uta E<li!or of lhe Chronicle. DEAB SIR,—Permit me to express my extreme pleasure at the improved 3iate of thiugs on Sunday pleasure at the improved State of thiugs on Sunday last, in that part of Pontypridd known as "The Tuaibld." Order, sobriety, and decency prevailed | the most fastidious moralist could scarcely bo scan- j lalteed by anything, with, I may say, but a siuyIt- exception which I personally wittie^s.-rl in the streets, where usually so much that is offensive | mc jts the eye. The public may be encournged with I this reflection; the forces of riot and disorder may be coped with. The lesson of Sunday last tcas-hes us chat we need not despair. There is yet a power it, Pontvpridd stronger than the daring and ofivn-uo publican. Hitherto he has set Parliame-it and its statutes at ditiauce the law with its prohibitions he Has systematically ignored the opinions of a reli^io.i.- puohi; he has brushed as so many cobwebs fin one | -side. But on Sunday las: he was confronted with a power which he had to acknowledge. The p lit-emen, ox the scene they kept a vigilant eye on Lij,. movements oi iojiii ^e.v, lie. i giu palaces and semi- Ototheta were hushed and qniet. t 1 heartily congratulate Mr Supt. Mafthews oh tL result of last Sunday's vigilance it clearly (ihuiou -itratcd that he had a force at his command equal to the occasion, and, efficiently managed, Pontypridd tuay become as peaceful and quiet on Sunday as a amaii couutry viilagf. Our Superintendent has now been spared the saddest and bitterest reflection which a public officer can make, namely, that be is not able to discharge the duties of his office, make the law respected, bring delinquents to punishment, and wiu the resp-ct of persons of character, position, and in- flaence iu tills comn. unity. I am, &c., WILLIAM PAJU-V. Pontypridd. To the Editor of the Chronicle. SiR—I should like to say a word or two, if p'D wil kindly allow me to do eo, on the above subject. Any one going through our streets on the Sabbath D", -cannot fail to see some very sad sights, and to hear language too foul for utterance, and wehave long be- h trying to find a wa.y bv which such a state of t could be remedied. Kow, sir, I hope weshallsoon see a change for the better. Last Sunday there WHS an absence of that rowdy Urn and drunkenness to which we have so long beeD accustomed, and quietness aiid decency prevailed in our streets. We are thankiul for this, and trust the magisterial bench will streny then the hands of the Superintendent of Police, and his officers, in their efforts to bring about a bettbr observance of the Sunday Closing Act in Pontypridd. Yoars, (fee., Jaa. CooMr.r s. yFontvpridd, Jane 5, 1338.
