The great fight on the Land Bill has taken place, as our readers will see by our parliamentary intelligence of Monday, and Government has obtained a must satisfac- tory victory. The measure will pass the Commons without any serious modification. -The Coercion Bill has been put'in operation. A Dundalk printer was summoned the other day for printing a seditious sheet, and allowed to stand out on bail on the understanding that he would sell no more.—The Hon. GREVILLE NUGENT has been unseated for Longford, on the grounds of corrupt practices and treating.—Sir STAFFORD NORTHCOTE has left for Canada, on an amicable mission in connection with the Red River rebellion. Great indignation is felt at the conduct of RIELL in shooting SCOTT, and meetings have been held throughout Canada, at which resolutions were passed calling upon Government to put down the rebellion and punish SCOTT'S murderers.—The Canadian Govern- ment have received information of a projected Fenian raid, for which they are fully prepared.—The Boat Race on Wednesday was won by Cambridge, for the first time since 18t;0. The result has been received with general satisfaction. The budget is to be introduced next M onday, when it is expected that a penny will be taken off the income tax, and that amongst the other remissions the breakfast table will come in for its share.
In the division which took place on Mr DISRAELI'S amendment to the Land Bill, to confine compensation to actual loss in unexhausted improvements, or interruption in a course of husbandry, with the 222 members who sup- ported it voted— Col. Corbett Mr J. Jones Mr Figgins Mr T. Meyrick Gen. Forester Major Morgan Mr J. R. Ormsby Gore Lord A. E. Hill Trevor Gen. Herbert Mr G. H. Whalley With the 298 who supported the Government- Mr A. H. Brown Mr H. Richard Mr R. Davies Mr E. M. Richards Mr Dillwyn Mr Sartoris Col. Edwardes Hon. W. O. Stanley Mr Fothergill Col. Stuart Sir John Hanmer Hon. C. R. D. H. Tracy Lord Hyde Mr H. H. Vivian Mr G. 0. Morgan Mr W. Williams The Select Committee on Mr OSBORNE MORGAN'S Bill consists of the following gentlemen: Mr Secretary BnCCE, Mr COLLINS, Mr CROSS, Mr CUBITT, Mr HARD- CASTLE, Mr BEP.ESFORD HOPE, Mr MIALL, Mr O. MOR- GA.N, Mr S. MORLEY, Mr MOWBRAY, Earl PERCY, Mr RICHARD, Sir J. SIMEON, Mr STONE, Mr JOHN TALBOT. It Is satisfactory to find the names of well known noncon- formists like Mr MORLEY, Mr MIALL, and Mr RICHARD, and that of Sir J. SIMEON, a Roman Catholic, on the committee. The proceedings have been taken in private, and the committee has adjourned. The Sites Bill was read a second time on Wednesday, after a long discussion. Mr OSBORNE MORGAN moved the second reading in an able speech, and Mr HENRY RICHARD supported him. To a certain extent the Bill was accepted by both sides of the House, but it was un- derstood that an attempt would be made to modify it in committee. A good deal, indeed, was said about striking out the compulsory clauses, which are the very basis of the measure, and without which Mr MORGAN will, of course, abandon it as a mere delusion. We hope, how- ever, that Mr BRUCE will recognise the cogency of the hon. member's facts and arguments, and let the Bill pass essentially unaltered. One of the most curious parliamentary divisions upon record took place last week. Mr FAWCETT brought for- ward a motion requesting the Government, with the least possible delay, to introduce a measure which would not only free the fellowships, scholarships, and other emolu- ments and honours of Trinity College, Dublin, from all religious disabilities, but which would further provide that those who are not members of the Established Church might, within a reasonable time, obtain an adequate in- fluence in the government of the College." Mr GLAD- STONE opposed the motion, on the ground that Irish questions of so much importance should be left in the hands of the Government, which would at a future time deal with the general subject of education in Ireland. A division was taken, nominally, on a motion for adjourn- ment, but virtually upon Mr FAWCETT'S proposition and Mr GLADSTONE'S reply-in which he intimated that he should regard Mr FAWCETT'S success as a vote of want of confidence when a singular spectacle was witnessed. Conservative members flocked into the lobby in support of the abolition of those tests in Ireland which they are so strenuously supporting in England, and men like Col. CORBETT voted for perfect religious freedom- in Dublin. The explanation, however, is simple enough, and hardly points, we fear, to a similar conservative policy when the same question is opened with regard to Oxford and Cambridge. The conservatives are afraid of denominational education in Ireland, because of the ad- vantage it would give to Roman Catholics, and hence this access of religious liberalism. With Mr FAWCETT voted Col. CORBETT, conservative member for South Shropshire, Mr FIGGINS, conservative member for Shrews- bury, and Mr T. MEYRICK, conservative member for Pembroke. With the Government, Mr DILLWYN, Col. EDWARDES, Mr FOTHEBGILL, Mr W. B. HUGHES, Lord HYDE, Mr OSBORNE MORGAN, Mr LOVE JONES-PARRY, Mr HENRY RICHARD, Mr SARTORIS, Col. STUART, Mr H. H. VIVIAN, and Mr WATKIN WILLIAMS, all Welsh liberal members Mr SCOURFIELD, Conservative member for Pembrokeshire, and Mr W. H. FOSTER, liberal mem- ber for Bridgnorth. The names of Mr J. R. ORMSBY GORE, General HERBERT, Mr TRACY, Mr C. W. WYNN, Sir WATKIN WILLIAMS WYNN, Mr HOLLAND, and Mr RICHARD3, do not appear in the division lists. Lord R. GROSVENOR and Sir T. D. LLOTD paired for the Govern- ment. A great deal has been said lately about English bishops in Wales, and some of our readers will be surprised to hear how many of those prelates can address the in- habitants in their own language. The Bishop of BANGOR, it is well known, is an accomplished Welsh scholar so is the Bishop of ST. DAVID'S, and the Bishop of LLANDAFF, who was for some years incumbent of a Welsh parish in Cardiganshire, thoroughly understands the language. When, therefore, the Bishop of ST. ASAPH is duly in- stalled, all the prelates in Wales will be able to speak to the people in the native tongue.
RIVAL MARKET HALLS AT ABERYSTWYTH.
RIVAL MARKET HALLS AT ABERYSTWYTH. There is some danger that Aberystwyth may be too well supplied with market accommodation. A proposal has been before the public for erecting a new building on the site of the present corn market, opposite the Talbot Hotel; and now another project is announced, according to which the market, together with a public hall, will be placed in Terrace-road, with a wide entrance from Baker-street. Both undertakings are influentially supported, and as, very naturally, some amount of rivalry seems to have entered into the proceedings, there is, as we have said, a danger lest the town should be over- stocked with market accommodation. The Terrace-road project is taken up by a company which has been regis- tered under the title of the Aberystwyth Market and Public Hall Co. (Limited), with a capital of ze3,000, in 600 shares of £ 5 each, to be fully paid up. The land which has been obtained on advantageous terms, is 13,885 superficial feet, and there is a frontage of 142 feet to Terrace-road. A public hall, for public meetings and entertainments, is part of the project, but will not be pro- ceeded with until the market is completed. Terrace-road is an important thoroughfare, and the advocates of this scheme claim for it the great advantage of a good situa- tion and a/siple room. Some of the articles of association are novel and give the impression of public spirit on the part of the promoters. One provides for the sale of the property to the local authorities another gives power to the Local Board to elect one-half of the committee of management from the Town Commissioners. Besides this, when the profits exceed n- per cent, half of the surplus is to go to the ratepayers It is stated that one of the largest shareholders has guaranteed 5 per cent. for two years, and that a large amountof capital has been taken up. Messrs SzLUiirER and ALDWINCKLE are preparing plans, which will shortly be submitted to a special meeting of the Town Improvement Commissioners. The advo- oates of the Terrace-road site urge against the corn narket, that it is of insufficient area, being only 2,970 superficial feet, and that the multiplication of stories in the building, which will be necessitated by the require- ments of the market, is a grave objection. Now surely something can be done to bring the two companies to terms. Both will be injured if they proceed to carry out their schemes, and the rival buildings will be the laughing- stock of visitors. Aberystwyth is quite large enough for one good market, but not for two, and it is imperatively necessary, in the interests of everybody concerned, that an effort should at once be made to effect a compromise, and to prevent the absurd result with which at present we are threatened
DISSENT AND CRIME IN MERIONETHSHIRE.
DISSENT AND CRIME IN MERIONETHSHIRE. Fortunately it is no uncommon thing to see a blank calendar in Merionethshire, for, like other parts of North Wales—in spite of the terrible teaching which, as the London Standard informs us, proceeds from dissenting pulpits-it is singularly free from crime. There was not a single prisoner for trial at the Quarter Sessions on Wednesday, and the same gratifying circumstance has characterized the Easter Sessions in Anglesea. Mr RICHARDS, in charging the grand jury at Dolgelley, re- marked that crime was very low amongst the rural popu- lation of Wales, and that nearly all the offences were com- mitted by tramps. How to reconcile this with the terrible accounts of the dissenters which appear from time to time in the conservative press, we are quite at a loss to say. That dissent and an absence of crime go together in Wales seems to be a fact, and we must leave the Standard to explain it, and make it fit in, as best it may, with the theory that dissenting preachers are the curse of the Principality. The preachers, we are continually in- formed, are always preaching horrible things from the pulpit, and instilling destructive ideas from house to house. We might escape from the difficulty by supposing that dissenting ministers have little power over the people, but on that point the Standard gives us very different in- formation, and leads us to presume that the preachers are extremely influential. The dilemma, therefore, is com- plete. There is only one solution, and as that consists in supposing that the Standard is full of the foulest mis- representations, we should hesitate to accept it if any alternative presented itself. Common sense, however, drives us to the melancholy conclusion that our highly respectable contemporary indulges in the grossest abuse of a very exemplary class of men, whose influence is so far good that Wales is almost free from crime. A question asked at the Quarter Sessions seems indeed at first to point to some amount of agrarian outrage, since we are informed that damage has been done to two properties in the county; but the depredations may have been committed, most likely were committed, by tramps, and the letter which Mr RICHARDSON received is, of course, worth just nothing at all as a piece of evidence, because the writer may have been influenced by the mis- representations of the Standard. As a matter of fact agrarian crime is unknown in Merionethshire, and almost unknown in Wales, and the little interest which Mr RICHARDSON'S question excited amongst a number of landlords showed in a very satisfactory way the peace- ful state of the country. Against the tramps, we are glad to see, a crusade is to be waged. The able CHAIR- MAN and his brother magistrates seem determined to punish the worthless vagabonds who prowl about the country, but justice would have a better chance of success if the soft-hearted public would assist in suppressing this terrible evil. The flabby benevolence of the patrons of roadside beggars is even more difficult to deal with than vagrancy itself, and impossible to put down. We hope a good deal, however, from the efforts of the authorities, and if every county would do what Merionethshire is about to do, vagrancy would diminish with surprising rapidity. MRTILRUSTON, who seems to have very decided opinions on the subject, tells us that he has cleared his own district, and we wish there were a great many more magistrates of the same way of thinking and acting.
Last week we mentioned the vicar of Aberystwyth as a candidate for the proctorship of St. David's diocese. The Rev. Latimer M. Jones, vicar of Carmarthen, and the Rev. D. Williams, vicar of Llanelly, are also candidates for the office, and the name of the Rev. R. Lewis, of Lam- peter-Velfrey, has been mentioned. MERIONETHSHIRE.—Royal Militia.—A. J. S. Corbet, Gent., to be Lieutenant (Supernumerary). THE MERIONETHSHIRE MILITIA.—The recruits of the above corps will assemble at Bala for their annual train- ing on the 2.5th inst., and the remainder of the corps on May 9th. BANKRUPTS,-—The following appear amongst the de- cl&rations of dividends :—H. A. Ladbury, Newport, Salop, chemist, div. 8d.; R. W. Spendelow, Market Drayton, chemist, div. 11 id. THE BISHOP OF ST. A;A.PH.-It is expected that the new bishops of Chichester and St. Asaph will be conse- crated on the 1st of May. The Bishop of Chichester will take his seat in the House of Lords as junior prelate, but the Bishop of St. Asaph will be without a seat for the present. ASSOCIATION FOR FREEDOM OF WORSHIP.—We have been requested to announce that the Rev. J. Walter Moore, of Hordley Rectory, Edesmere, has been appointed local treasurer of the National Association for Freedom of Worship (London and Manchester), whose object is gradually to abolish pew rents in parish churches, and to restore their ancient freedom to rich and poor alike. PARLIAMENTARY PETITIONS.—By Mr C. W. Wynn, from Buttington, in favour of the Elementary Education Bill. Mr S. Holland, from Festiniog, in favour of Mr Hill's plan for granting superannuations for elementary teachers in old age. Mr. G. 0. Morgan, from Independ- ents at Rhos, against denominational education; from Rossett and Rhoscyllen, in favour of the Burials Bill; and from the Corwen Guardians, in favour of the Sunday- closing Bill. RAILWAY ACCIDENT IN WALES.—-A serious railway ac- cident occurred on Saturday at Pontrilas, about ten miles from Abergavenny. A coal train for London was running down an incline at a rapid rate, when the axle of a truck near the engine snapped, and the succeeding waggons were thrown off the metals. The rails were torn up for a con- siderable distance, and a number of trucks were smashed and piled across the whole breadth of the line. Some were hurled down an embankment into a brook. Nearly nine hours elapsed before the line was restored to working order. DENBIGH, RUTHIN, AND CORWEN RAILWAY COMPANY. —Tuesday was the day appointed for holding the half- yearly meeting of this company. The following was the report of the directors :-Your directors are still en- deavouring to carry out the scheme which has been sanc- tioned by the Court of Chancery, and no effort on their part shall be wanting to effect so beneficial an arrange- ment. In the meantime the accounts are prepared in accordance with the Regulation of Railways Act, 1868, so far as it is possible, seeing that the whole of the com- pany's receipts and expenditure pass through the hands of the receiver appointed by the Court of Chancery, who vouches his accounts to that court. The directors who retire are Mr Fynney and Mr Banks. They are eligible, and offer themselves for re-election. The present auditors have resigned, and it will be necessary to elect a suc- cessor. YSTRADMEURIG GRAMMAR SCHOOL.—APPOINTMENT OF PRINCIPAL MASTER, ANDPRESENTATIONOFTHE BENEFICES OF YSTADMEURIG AND YSPYTTY YSTWYTH.—The Rev. John P. Jones, formerly assistant master, has been ap- pointed by the Bishop of St. Davids and Major Lloyd Philips, of Dale Castle, Pembrokeshire, to be principal master of the above school, and has also been presented by the Earl of Lisburne, of Crosswood Park, to the bene- fices of Ystradmeurig and Yspytty Ystwyth, in the place of the late Rev. Lewis Evans, deceased. Mr Jones has proved himself a good disciplinarian, and a most efficient in- structor in the Greek and Latin classics and in general scholastic knowlege. He was formerly a student of Ystradmeurig school, and afterwards entered at Jesus College, Oxford, where he was successful in obtaining a scholarship, and subsequently took his B.A. degree. The appointment seems to give the greatest satisfaction in the neighbourhood, and there is no doubt that the school will improve under his able supervision. Mr Jones has inti- mated his intention of re-establishing the school for children at Swyddffyrn, which is much needed, but has been unfortunately neglected by former principals of Ystrad- meurig. ——————*——————
ABERYSTWITH. DRUNK AND ASSAULTING THE POL[CF,On Thursday, before the Mayor, and John Davies, Esq., a disreputable tramp, who gave the name of William Roberts, from Pembrokeshire, was charged with this offeree.—P.C. James said that on the previous night, about twelve o'clock, he saw the prisoner drunk on the street, and asked him 9 what he was doing there, when the prisoner struck at him and became very violent. He proceeded to take the pri- soner into custody, and the prisoner kicked him and tore his trousers into ribbons. Sergeant Evans then came to his assistance, and the prisoner was lodged in the lock-up. —Sergeant Evans corroborated, and the prisoner was sentenced to Cardigan gaol for two months' hard labour. A HOCRE ON FIRE.-About half-past nine o'clock on Tuesday night the inhabitants of Shipbuilders' Row, in this town, were suddenly aroused by the cry of fire. Some persons had seen flames issuing from the house of Hugh Lloyd, coal merchant, in the middle of the row. As no one appeared to be in the house at the time, the door was burst open, and a great number of persons proceeded at once, some to throw water and the others to remove the furniture. At last they succeeded in extinguishing the fire, but not without great damage having been done to the building and the furniture. Part of the roof had been taken off to enable the water to be thrown on the fire. Feather beds and bed clothes and wearing apparel in large quantities as well as furniture were destroyed, and had not 11 the fire been arrested before it had made more progress, no doubt the whole row of houses would have met with the same fate. The calamity which might have overtaken the town is realized all the more vividly when we recollect that Aberystwyth as vet has not been provided with any .sort of fire engine Mrs Lloyd and the children were out when the fire began, and it has not been ascertained how it originated. The house was not insured. PETTY SESSIONS, WEDNESDAY.—Before the Mayor, I and John Davies, Esq. A Drunken Wife.-Anne Lewis, wife of John Lewis, Shipbuilders' Row, was summoned for drunkenness.—P. C. James saw the defendant very drunk and noisy and quarreling with some man on the street—Fined 2s. 6d. Wife Beating.-Patrick Walters, a hawker, was sum- moned by Esther Walters, his wife, for assaulting her.- The complainant said defendant came to her lodgings and threatened to thump her with a poker, Saying ferociously that he would murder her, and afterwards on Tuesday he struck her with a whip, and she was in bodily fear of him, and wished to have him bound over to keep the peace.— P.C. Jones said that on Monday afternoon he was sent for to the Merionethshire Arms, kept by Mr Owen Jones, when he saw the complainant in a back room there, and the defendant in the front room. They both came into the kitchen, and after a few cross words, the defendant got hold of the poker and attempted to strike his wife, but witness prevented him. The defendant also said that he would murder her or take his own life away. The officer then succeeded in getting the defendant away from his wife.—The defendant was bound over to keep the peace, himself in £10, with two sureties in 23 each, for the period of twelve months. A Warning to Children.—David Rees, son of Mr Rees, coachbuilder, and John Thomas, son of Elias Thomas, late of The Vaults, New-street, two juveniles, were sum- moned for obstructing the streets.—P.C. James said that he saw the defendants playing in Queen's-road. They had placed big stones in the middle of the street, and were afterwards throwing a ball and running round obstructing the street.—On account of the children's age, the case was ordered to stand over for a week. TOWN COUNCIL.-ADJOURNED MEETING, THURSDAY.—Present: John Matthews, Esq., Mayor, in the chair Aldermen Thomas Jones and John Davies Councillors John Watkins, David Roberts, John Rees, G. T. Smith, Richard Morris, T. O. Morgan, and Jonathan Pell; Mr John Parry, town clerk, and Mr Szlumper, the engineer, were also present. The Town Clerk drew the attention of the Board to the necessity of proceeding to carry out the proposed loan which the Corporation intended to effect, and after some conversation, the Clerk referred to the New Slaughter-liouse.—He observed that it was desirable that they should at once fix upon a tariff of charges. Lists of charges made at Carmarthen and Cardigan were laid on the table. —Mr Thomas Jones suggested that the fixing of a tariff and everything connected with the letting of the slaughter-house should be submitted to the committee appointed to carry out the same. —Mr G. T. Smith was of the same opinion.—The Town Clerk wished to know if the keeper of the slaughter-house would be allowed to keep pigs there.—Air Pell replied that there was no accom- modation for pigs.—Mr Szlumper observed that it was never intended to feed cattle.—The Town Clerk asked whether a person who brought a lot of cattle in by train on Saturday night should be allowed to feed them until Monday morning at the slaughter-house.—Mr Szlumper did not see how they could be prevented. —Mr Thomas Jones was unwilling to serve on the committee, as he knew very little about pigs and cattle and he begged of them to appoint some other gentleman more able than himself. —Mr Pell said a more able person than Mr Jones could not be found among the members of the board.—The Mayor said that a committee had been appointed consist- ing of three or four gentlemen, of whom he was one him- self, but he was sorry to say that they had not been very faithful in attending. Aldermen Jones and Davies did attend, but one gentleman who had been appointed had not attended at all. He suggested that other gentlemen should be added to the committee, so as to have the same person:, to act on the Town Hall and the slaughter-house commit tees. -Nlr Jones and others were of the same opinion. —MrT. O. Morgan proposed and Mr G. T. Smith seconded that Mr Pell be added to the committee, which was carried unanimously.—The Town Clerk urged the com- mittee to meet without delay, so as to arrange matters in order to advertise the slaughter-house to be let.—Mr Davies asked whether they would advertise it in the news- papers, or by the issuing of hand bills. —The Town Clerk said that both should be done. The New British Schools. -Tlie Mayor said that a depu- tation representing the committee of the British School was in attendance and the Board would like to know what they had to say.—The Rev. John Williams (with whom were the Revs. A. Griffiths, LL.B., and David Thomas) said that they were now in the same position as they were at the last meeting. The result of their inter- view with the present owner of the property on which the school was intended to be built was that she refused to exchange the land.—The Mayor said the matter was simply this—that the representatives of the British School asked the Corporation to grant them access to the school from Plascrug Walk.—Mr Thomas Jones said he had not changed his mind since the last meeting of the Board. He was very sorry to find that the owner refused to exchange one spot for another to build the school on, but in his opinion it would spoil the ground to have egress or ingress over it to the school. He was sorry to oppose the friends of the British school, but he was certainly in favour of making use of the ground as originally proposed. They had succeeded in negotiating for the land with Sir Pryse Pryse, for the purpose of improving the town, andit would be wrong for the Corporation to deviate from their original intention.—Mr Pell was of the same opinion as Mr Jones, but he should be willing on the expiration of the lease to grant the fee simple of the piece of land to the British School committee. As trustees of the town property they should be very careful to do everything with a view of improving the town. He thought there would be no diffi- culty in getting another piece of land to build the school upon, and he certainly would object to have access to the school from the Plascrug Walk. -The Rev. John Wil- liams observed that the Corporation had promised it.- Mr Pell said that an application was made, but it was not granted. -The Town Clerk referred to an order made on the 20th of November, that the application should be granted, and Mr Matthews was ordered to prepare a plan of the ground.—The Town Clerk said they were pledged in a certain sense to comply with the application before them, but the question was whether the Council would accede to it, as the promoters of the school had been sleep- ing since then. They had waited to know what govern- ment grant they were likely to secure.—The Rev. J. Williams stated that the plan had been prepared to be submitted to the treasury, but as they could have no ac- cess to the schools they did not see their way clear to pro- ceed. He thought that a narrow path could be constructed to give access to the building without injuring the boule- vards.—Mr Thomas Jones said when the lease expired no doubt that spot would be the best for building purposes in Aberystwyth.—The Mayor thought the narrow path men- tioned by Mr Williams would spoil the field as building ground. To come to the point—was there any chance of the Corporation's acceding to Mr Williams's proposal? It was unwise to press the question if the-feel- ing of the Board was against it, but still Mr Williams was perfectly right in the impression that the Council had promised to entertain the matter, and grant the fee simple after the expiration of the leases; still it was not impera- tive upon the Council to accede.—After a few remarks by the Rev. D. Thomas, Mr David Roberts said it was un- fair to press the application, as the feeling of the Board was clearly against granting it.—The Rev. John Williams suggested the adjournment of the debate upon the question.—The Mayor thought that it had better remain at present in abeyance.—The Rev. A. Griffith, LL.B., as one of the deputation, wished to know whether they would accede or not to the application of the School Com- mittee. After having an answer to that question, they should then know how to act.—The Rev. David Thomas was of a similar opinion, that they should be told Yes or "No," and then they would be in a position to inform the School Committee of the decision of the Council. After remarks from Pell, Mr Thomas Jones, and several others, it was ultimately decided not to accede to the request of the School Committee. Application for Land to Build Upon.-Mr Thomas Davies, builder, attended to make an application for the Aberystwyth Building Society, for a piece of land in Newfoundland-street to build upon. -The Mayor said that inasmuch as they would have a meeting of the Council that davweek, Mr Davies had better attend that day and lay the matter before the Board.—The Town Clerk also said that Mr Davies ought to have given notice of his applica- tion, as there were several parties who would come for- ward to negotiate for land to build upon in that street. This terminated the business.
BALA. APPOINTMENT.—We see that T. Ll. Anwyl, Esq., of Eryl Aran, Bala, has been appointed captain of the 4th Royal South Middlesex Militia. GWRTHEYRN'S CONCERT.—A concert took place at' the British School Bala, on Friday evening, April 1st. The principal vocalists were Mr G. Roberts (Gwrtheyrn), Mr H. Roberts (Eos Barlwyd), and Mr R. C.

BARMOUTH. THEFT.—At the police station on the 1st instant, before the Rev. J. Jones and W. Jones, Esq., Edmund Jones, native of Dolgelley, was charged with stealing from Bell- port Farm, near Dvffryn, a hen, the property of Anthony Ellis. The prisoner sold the-hen at a farm house called Dolwreiddiog, nine miles from Dyffryn. P.C. R. Williams proved finding the hen at Dolwreiddiog Farm. Committed to Dolgelley Gaol for seven days' hard labour.
PENN AL. PETTY SESSIONS, APRIL 1ST.—Before W. W. E. Wynne, Esq., C. F. Thruston, Esq., and John Pughe, Esq. Dirty Work at -David Davies was sum- monecl for assaulting John Jones. The assault had its origin in some anonymous letters which had been sent to the'defendant's wife, in which her husband was charged with infidelity. Mrs Jones was regarded as the author of these letters, and at the first opportunity Davies wreaked his vengeance upon her husband, Foi this he had to pay 21 15s., including costs.-Hu,-h and Evan Roberts were summoned for assaulting William Morgan. This was a similar case to the last. Anonymous letters were received by Hugh's wife, who is a sister to the defendant in the last case. The parties met in some public house row at Aber- gynolwyn, and the brothers assaulted the complainant, whose wife was suspected of having had something to do with the forwarding of this anonymous literature. Fined £115s. each, including costs. Mr Davies, of Dolgelley, appeared for the defendants in both cases. A Towyn To-per.-David Hughes, Towyn, was sum- moned by P.C. Metcalfe for being drunk and riotous, and fined £1, including costs. The Wine and Beerhouse Act. -Applications for certifi- cates to sell wine and beer under this Act were granted to Robert Jones Roberts, Towyn, druggist, and to Maurice Thomas, Corris, druggist. There were four applicants for petroleum licences, but, in the absence of the inspec- tor of weights and measures, these applications were ad- journed. Parochial Business. -The overseers and constables of the several parishes in the division were appointed. The accounts of the surveyors of highways were confirmed, with one exception, that of Mr George Jonathan Scott, Peniarth-ucliaf, surveyor for the township of Llanllwyda.
SWYDDFFYNON. SUDDEN DEATH.—An inquest was recently held at the Fountain Inn, before J. M. Davies, Esq., coroner, upon the body of Mrs Elizabeth Williams, of Blaenpentre Cottage, in this village, who died suddenly. The deceased held partaken of a hearty breakfast and was attending to her domestic duties, when she was taken alarmingly ill, and died before medical attendance could be procured. The jury found that the deceased had died from natural causes. The funeral was very largely attended.
DOLGELLEY. THE RECENT MARRIAGE OF THE MISSES EDWARDS, DOLSERAU.—At the beginning of the year we chronicled the very extensive demonstrations which took place in Dolgelley, and the adjoining villages, in honour of the marriage of the Misses Edwards, of Dolserau Hall. These rejoicings, which were very general, were not confined to any sect or denomination, and recognizing this fact-and in appreciation of the kindness and good feeling then dis- played towards the family of Dolserau— Mr Charles Edwards, in addition to presenting a handsome lectern to the parish church, has intimated his intention of offering for acceptance to each of the dissenting chapels in the town a large pulpit Bible as a momento of that memorable occasion.
ABERDOVEY. FOREIGN ARRIVAL. —The barque Glenalvon, belonging to Messrs Jones and Griffiths, merchants, of this place, has arrived here from Pensacola, N. S.A., with a cargo of timber for her owners. She experienced very severe weather on her passage and had a considerable part of her deck cargo waolied overboard and lost. GOOD FRIDAY.—From notices circulated it appears that Good Friday is to present us with a treat in the form of a musical entertainment, to be given by the Aberdovey United Choirs, which is formed of the elite of various choirs. This combination under the able conductorship of Mr M. Rowlands, and representing the musical ability of the locality, will ensure that the music discoursed will be of a high order, and the undertaking in every view a success.
MACHYNLLETH. THE POST OFFICE TELEGRAPHS.—The work of extend- ing the telegraph to the post office commenced yesterday. The route taken is over the "Boot" field, crossing Mr Breese's shop, and thence across to the post office. FELONY.—On Monday, a man named Edward Jones, that morning discharged from Dolgelley gaol, was brought before C. F. Thruston, Esq., charged by P.C. R. Thomas with stealing a coat from a farm house at Llanwrin. Re- manded to the petty sessions. SUDDEN DEATH. -On the 30th ult. an inquest was held by Dr D. R. Pughe, the district coroner, at Melinbar- hedyn, Darowen, upon the body of David Evans, 75, who died suddenly on the previous day. From the evidence of the son, it appeared that the deceased, who was in ill- health, rose at three o'clock in the afternoon, and came downstairs for dinner. He went out to the door of the house, fell down in a fit, and died almost directly after he was carried indoors. A verdict of Death by the visita- tion of God" was returned. THE ELECTION OF GUARDIANS.—No contest has taken place in any of the parishes, and the following list of per- sons elected has been issued by Mr David Howell, clerk to the guardians. Those marked with an asterisk are new guardians:—Cemmes, Mr Wm. Ryder; Darowen, Mr Richard Jones* Isygarreg, the Rev. Geo. Griffiths* Llanbrynmair, Mr Edward Bennett*, Mr Edward Jones*; Llanwrin, the Rev. Thomas Davies Machynlleth, Mr Griffith W. Griffiths, Mr Richard Gillart; Penegoes, Mr John Owen; Pennal, Mr John Jones Scuborycoed, Mr Evan Jones; Towyn, Mr Robert Roberts, Mr Owen Daniel, Mr Maurice Davies; Uwchygarreg, Mr Edward Davies. THE NEW CEMETERY.—The first interment in the plot of ground which the dissenting community of this town have purchased for the purposes of a cemetery, took place on Thursday afternoon, in the presence of a great con- course of people. Appropriate addresses were delivered by the dissenting ministers in the town, one of whom, re- ferring to Mr Osborne Morgan's Burial Bill, urged upon his fellow-dissenters the necessity of dissenting from the church even in the burial of their dead in ground conse- crated for the purposes of the establishment, by forming burial places of this character in which dissenters might be interred without having to seek the consent of any minister of the Established Church. The ground covers about an acre, and is situate in the rear of the workhouse. THE SANITARY STATE OF MACHYNLLETH.—Thanks, in a great measure to the exertions of the Health Committee, sanitary affairs in Machynlleth are looking a little brighter, nuisances and foul effluvia no longer assail one at every corner, and in every back lane, and, we are glad to add, fever has now been very nearly stamped out, no fresh cases being reported. The thin edge of the wedge only has been inserted, there is still much to be done be- fore Machynlleth can be admired as a clean town, and the Health Committee must not now rest content upon their oars, but must allow their successful labours of the past to spur them on to renewed effort in the future. They must do something with that pest hole of filth, that hot-bed of fever and disease-, the very source of the late outbreak, the Garsiwn brook. If that is allowed to re- main in its present foul condition, an open drain, reeking with nuisances of every kind, all their labours will be futile, and they had better devote their time, energy, and attention to this great source of disease, and then deal with the suppression of its thousand and one supporters. If it be allowed to continue in its present stata during the summer season, the health of the town will be greatly en- dangered, and the committee, it is to be feared, may have to combat a more dangerous and deadly foe than typhoid fever. -Communicated. PETTY SESSIONS, WEDNESDAY. Before C: F. Thruston, Esq., and J. G. W. Bonsall, Esq. Parish Business. — The surveyor's accounts for the several townships in the division were examined and con- firmed, parish constables and overseers appointed. The Wine and Beerhouse Act. -Application was made by Mr Breese, grocer, Machynlleth, for permission, to sell wine off the premises, under this Act. The application was granted. Charge of Perm:itting Drunkenness.-Benjamin Herbert, Commercial Vaults, was summoned for wilfully and know- ingly permitting drunkenness in his house. Mr Griffith Jones Williams appeared for the defendant. From the evidence it appeared that Joseph Smith and John Vickers, two doggers, were charged before Mr Thruston at Tal- garth, on the 28th of February, and fined 5s, each, and costs. Enquiries were made as to the mode in which these persons got drunk, and it transpired that on the night of February 26th, P.C. Roberts and P.C. Ashton saw a number of men leaving defendant's vaults, more or less drunk, as P. C. Roberts stated. Smith and Vickers were amongst the party, and spent the night in, the lockup on a charge of drunkenness. These men were now called as witnesses for the informer, and denied that they were drunk or that any of the party were in an advanced state of drunkenness. Smith denied that he had drunk more than sixpennyworth of ale in the vaults, and said that he had pleaded guilty to the charge of drunkenness because, being a stranger in the town, he thought that was the best way to act. Mr Griffith Jones Williams submitted that the conviction was a nullity, having taken place in Merioneth- shire whilst the offence occurred in Montgomeryshire.— The case was dismissed. Assault. -Ellis Jones, the keeper of the turnpike gate at Cemmaes, was summoned for assaulting the wife of Hugh Richards, labourer. Defendant did not appear. Some dispute of old standing existed between the defend- ant and complainant's husband, and on the day in ques- tion he entered her house, and gave her a good shaking. For this he had to pay 21, and costs, or suffer three weeks' imprisonment, with hard labour. After Llanbrynmair Fair.-Richard Hughes and John Humphreys were summoned for refusing to quit the Wynnstay Arms, Llanbrynmair, on the fair night, and there was a further charge against Hughes of assaulting P.C. Nicholas Edwards. From the evidence of the officer it appeared that about nine o'clock at night he was sent for by the landlord of the Wynnstay Arms. He found Richard Hughes and John Humphreys making a great row. Humphreys refused to go out, and Hughes, who was the originator of the row did the same, and both were forcibly ejected. When outside the door Hughes took off his coat, and challenging the officer to have a set to, struck him. Witness apprehended him, but owing to the pres- sure of the crowd tad to release him. Hughes had been turned out of the Wynnstay Arms at three o'clock on that afternoon, very drunk. W. Breese was called for the de- fence, and denied the evidence of the officer. Hughes, against whom there were 3 previous convictions, was fined 30s.,including costs. Humphreys was fined 10s., and costs. — Thomas Gittins and Wm. Breese were summoned for in- terfering with the police in the discharge of their duty. P.C. Nicholas had Hughes in custody, intending to take him to his house. He called upon a man named Owen to assist him, and Owen came up. Breese then said that Hughes should not be taken by the officer, and rescued him and took him home. Gittin" was pulling the officer from behind, and calling out let the man go." Fined 12s. each, including costs. The Nuisance at Ccmmins Coch.—Jane Rowlands, a pauper living at Commins Coch, was summoned by Mr Daniel Howell, relieving officer and inspector of nuisances of that district, for permitting a nuisance to exist in her house. The case has been before the Board of Guardians, and Mr Owen now stated that the house was a nuisance to the whole neighbourhood-the stench inside the house being most intolerable.—The necessary order was made for the abatement of the nuisance. Robbery from the Railway Warehouse at Llanbrynmair. —Edward Hughes, waggoner (on bail), was charged with breaking into the warehouse of the Cambrian Railway Company, at Llanbrynmair, and stealing 301bs. of Indian meal, value 2s. 6d. It appears that for some months Mr Dodwell. the stationmaster. constant. ,„;aoarl of the warehouse. On Sunday, the 20th ult., his wife saw I the prisoner go into the warehouse, and following him found that he had filled a bucket with Indian corn taken out of a sack consigned to Messrs Hughes and Howell. She made the prisoner empty the bucket, and the matter was placed in the hands of P.C. Nicholas.—Sentenced to seven days' imprisoment, with hard labour. A Brief Glimpse of Libei-ty.-Edwarcl Jones, labourer, was charged with stealing a velvet coat, the property of John Williams, Dolyfonddu, Cemmaes.—The prisoner, who was only discharged from Dolgelley gaol on Monday, after a service of four months there for housebreaking at Bryncrug, elected to be tried by the magistrates, and was sent to Montgomery for three months.
FORDEN. SUDDEN DEATH.—On Wednesday last, the 30th ult., an inquest was held before R. D. Harrison, Esq., coroner, at the House of Industry, touching the death of a child named E. Edward Pryce, son of one of the inmates, Elizabeth Pryce, who, after being sworn, said I am a single woman my child was fifteen months old. I am a pauper belonging to Pool Upper Division, and have been with my child an inmate in the House of Industry for the last year. My child was never a strong child. He has been suffering from whooping cough for the last three weeks. I went out of the sleeping room yesterday morn- ing, the 29th instant, about half-past ten, leaving my child in the arms of another pauper. In about ten minutes she brought him to me; he was then dying and died almost instantly. I am quite sure he died from natural causes. Dr Lorimer was then in the house and saw my child at once.-John W. Lorimer said I am a surgeon, and assistant to Mr Harrison, of Welshpool. I was in the House of Industry about half-past ten o'clock yesterday, when the deceased child was brought to me by his mother, who appeard much distressed. The child was dying. I I have examined externally the child since, and am quite satisfied it died from natural causes. I have attended it with many of the other children in the house for whooping cough. I believe it died from mucus in the bronchial tube, which caused suffocation. It was a weakly, ailing child.—Verdict, Died from natural causes."
NEWTOWN. LOCAL BOARD, APRIL 1ST.—Pesent Messrs Pichd. Lloyd, jun., chairman, Pryce Jones, S. Morgan, R. Hughes, R. Benbow; Mr W. Cooke, clerk; Mr Rees Griffith, inspector. The Clerk reported that there was a balance in he treasurer's hands of C239 12s. Id., and that the payments for the past month were R34 8s. Id. The Inspector's Report.—The Inspector reported that the lodging houses in the town had been visited once c., week, and that they and the slaughter houses were clean. He reported that the yards be had visited were free from nuisances. Smoke.—The Inspector complained that Mr Lewis Lewis had not complied with the order of the Board, for the abatement of the smoke arising from his chimney. — Mr Pryce Jones said that if the Board would direct what plan they wished to be carried out, Mr Lewis was willing to entertain the suggestion. The matter had been placed in Mr Sturkey's hands, to devise some plan.—The Chair- man said that the nuisance had been before the Board for nearly twelve months, at the complaint of private indi- viduals, who stated that they could not open the windows of their houses, without having their rooms filled with smoke. It was not for the Board to devise a plan to remedy the nuisance; this responsibility rested upon the person complained of. The subject had been adjourned for six months in order to allow the smoke consumers of the Cambrian Foundry Company to be tested. —Mr Ben- bow said that it was quite clear that Mr Lewis had had sufficient time and sufficient warning to remedy the nuisance, which was greatly complained of. Was the subject to be put off indefinitely, or would they mention some time in order to allow Mr Sturkey's plan to be car- ried out ? -Mr Hughes said that the smoke was so dense that it was impossible to distinguish a person three yards distant.—The Chairman suggested a month's delay, but this was opposed by Mr Benbow, who thought that Mr Lewis had already had sufficient time to remedy the nuisance.—Mr Pryce Jones thought that a month was the least possible time in which the work could be completed. —The Inspector said that Mr Lewis had told him he was willing to erect a smoke consumer, if he could have a guarantee that it would answer.—Mr Morgan suggested a fortnight's delay, aad this was agreed to. An Apl-)eal.Alr Pilot attended before the Board to appeal against the rating of certain fields in his occupa- tion. He urged that he ought to have been charged 2d. in the pound, instead of 8d. His land was divided by the railway, the whole being rated to the poor at £ 27, while the Board, on the half of the land in their district, had placed a rating of £ 20. —The Clerk said the- rope-walk and land had been rated together, instead of separately. —The Chairman said that the Rating Committee would look into the matter. The Long Bridge Drain.—The Inspector complained of the state of the drain at the end of the Long Bridge, many of the pipes being broken. Referred to the Street Committee. lIfrxtthew's Yard Paiizp. -The Clerk reported that he had received counsel's opinion as to the powers of the Board to close the well in Matthew's Yard. Counsel's opinion was that the Local Board had no power to close the well; as the owner had declined to cleanse the well counsel advised that the Board should do it, and charge the owner with the expense. It was resolved that the owner of the well should have notice to cleanse the well, and that if it were not commenced within fourteen days, the work should be carried out by the Inspector .of the Board, at the cost of the owner of the property.
MONTGOMERY. EMIGRATION TO KANSAS. -On Tuesday there was an in- teresting, yet very affecting, scene at the Montgomery Station of the Cambrian Line. Seventy persons, resident in the neighbourhood, took their departure for Kansas, United States. The emigrants were conveyed to Liver- pool, where they will embark on board the Colorado to- day, and sail this evening for New York, whence they will proceed overland some 1,700 miles to their transatlantic home. The emigrants, who included, we believe, one or two entire families, appeared to be farmers in comfortable circumstances. They take with them some choice live stock, as well as agricultural implements.

THE BOAT RACE.
THE BOAT RACE. The great boat race was rowed on Wednesday and won by Cambridge. The last time the light blue was victorious was in 1860, when Oxford was defeated by a length and a half, in a race which occupied 26 minutes 5 seconds. Out of twenty-seven contests between the University crews, sixteen have been won by Oxford and eleven by Cambridge.
In the House of Commons, on Thursday, Mr E. Richards asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any arrange- ments had been made or were proposed to he made in the oltice of registrar of friendly societies to obtain the quinquennial return of the "rate or amount of sickness and mortality ex- perienced by each society within the five years ending Decem- ber 1870; and whether it was proposed to pro\ lde for tabu- lating such returns to be laid before Paiiuuiierit, in accordance with"the provisions of the Act 18th and 19th V ict., c. 63. Mr Stansfeld said that it would be the duty of the registrar when he issued his notices to these societies this year to call their atten- tion to the provisions of the Act of Parliament, and upon their making the returns required by it they would be tabulated and the results made public, LUXURIANT AND BEAUTIFUL HAIR.—Mrs S.
