The above committee was held at the Town Hall, on Monday, under the presidency of Mr. Mills, to consider the order of con- ferring Urban Powers for the town of Llan- rwst. It appeared that article 9 in the said order provides that the town of Llanrwst pay the sum of zC700 to the Rural part of the parish in respect of loans paid by them. The meeting unanimously considered it most unfair that the town should be asked anything, as provision is made under article 8 of the said order to relieve the rural part I of the parish from all future payment in respect of the said loans. The above resolu- ¡ tion was brought before a special meeting of the District Council on Tuesday, when all agreed that the town should not pay more I than the actual sum paid by the rural part, which would be only £ 400. A public meet- ing is to be held on Friday, to further consi- der the mater. BOARD OF GUARDIANS. 1 THE fortnightly meeting of the above Board was held on Tuesday last. There were present Messrs. E.
