The testimonial to B. W. WVNNE, Esq., chair. man of the St Asaph Board of Guardians will be presented at Garthewin on the 2nd proximo.
In another column we publish the results of the revision courts held at Holywell, Rhyl, and St. Asaph. The figures show a not Liberal gam of 7b. The Synodical (Calvinistic) Examintion for the cnrrent year was held during the early part of the present week. Four different subjects were givon to the candidates and a seperate examiner undertook each subject. The candidates from South Wales were examined at Neath, by the Rev J. OGWEN JONES, B.A., of this town, and the Rev EZEKIEL THOMAS; and those from North Wales at Chester, by the Revs GRIFFITH DAVIES, and W. JAMES, B.A., Manchester.
In our correspondence column we publish a very complimentary letter from the Rev DUNCAN- MACGREGOR, which will probably be the last letter written by the rev. gentleman before his departure from Rhyl. Mr MACGREGOR will preach his farewell surmon next Sunday.
At the Broughton Petty Sessions two or three weeks ago, three publicans from the Saltney district were fined for opening their houses on Sunday, and Mr CHURTON, Chester, the defend- ing solicitor, applied to have the case tried at a superior court, and the application was granted. At the last sessions, on Thursday, another Saltney publican was charged with keeping his house open on Sunday the 2nd inst. The defendant had been advised by his solicitor to keep his house open on Sundays until the point in dispute of the Welsh Sunday Closing Act had been decided at the Queen's Bench. The defendant said that he had no wish to defy the magistrates or to break the law. The chair. man (W. H. GLADSTONE, Esq., M.P.), in imposing a fine of 10s,said the law as to Sunday Closing was as they had determined at the last meeting until the disputed point had been settled at the higher court, and added that future cases would be more severely dealt with-they would not hesitate to endorse the licenses of offending parties. The Broughton bench of magistrates are evidently satisfied as to when the new Act operates.
The monthly meeting of the St Asaph High- way Board held last Saturday was unusually lively, and though amendments upon amend- ments were proposed the arguments were entirely free from personalities such as we hear of nearer home, and the subjects under notice were dealt with in a business-like manner. At a previous meeting of the board it was decided to meet at 2.30 instead of 11.30. This did not seem to suit all the members, and a compromise was effected on Saturday to meet at the old time until March, when the question will again be considered. The clerk's salary was considered inadequte but the board could not see its way clear to advance it. Ihe sur- veyor's application for an advance in his salary was refused.
» Rhyl will return an additional guardian to the St Asaph Board at the next election. A letter from the Local Government Board was read at the fortnightly meeting of the guardians on Thursday last sanctioning the representation of the parish of Rhuddlan by five guardians, and stating that the parish will be divided into an urban ward and a rural ward-the first, com- prising the district of the Rhyl Improvement Commissioners, to elect three guardians; and the other, comprising the remainder of the parish, to elect two gurdians.
The ordinary meeting of the St Asaph Guardians was held last Thursday. The state of the house was reported satisfactory, and the children were all well. It is worthy of notice that the number of vagrants relieved during the past fortnight showed a marked decrease as compared with the corresponding period last year, the figures in the master's books showing a falling off of 45. The books also showed the number of inmates to be 101 durinir the past Pnrt(n irrlrf". nrtrl 1 1 A. ^nvinof the ^OVffiSpOnUing period last year.
The Flintshire Quarter Sessions were held at Mold on Tuesday and Wednesday last. The county business was transacted the first day, and the prisoners were tried on the second. In his charge to the grand jury the chairman (Mr. SCOTT BANKES), referred to the Welsh Sunday Closing Act, and warned offenders against the Act, signifying his intention of inflicting a heavy fine for any infringements of the law should his brother magistrates agree with him. Nine prisoners were tried, seven of which were sentenced to different terms of imprisonment, the grand jury failing to find a true bill against the other two.
There is one characteristic of the present Gov. ernment which has not been fully appreciated, and that is its quiet and patient determination. This feature has been manifest in its policy in regard to Ireland. Through evil report and good report it has persevered with its land legislation. It has also declined to apply force to any extent until it bad found a remedy for existing evils. It has waited until the last moment to see whether the Land Leaguers would return to reason and sense and morality. Its hopes have not been realised, and hence it has assumed the responsibility of striking blow after blow in favour of authority and C5 order. Beginning with the seizure of Mr PARNELL, M.P., it has proceeded to lock up Mr SEXTON, M.P., Mr O'KELLY, M.P., Mr DILLON, M.P., and several smaller men. The patience which the Govern- ment has exercised has been followed by one great advantage, viz., that its action is now fortified by public opinion through the world. Liberals, of course regret exceedingly the neces. sity for such exceptional action. At the same time they are constrained to bear testimony to the fact that the utmost limits of forbearance have been reached. America and Germany combine to approve of the conduct of the Government. We have full confidence that the Government will conbine determination with moderation in the use of its exceptional power. We therefore hope its object will be attained without blood. shed. We trust also that the loyal people of Ireland, who after all are the vast majority, will take the opportunity to sustain the nation. al executive, and so help to deliver themselves from an organised tyranny which has sought to supplant constitutional government, and which has done so much damage to the interests of the country.
ABERGELE. A terriffic storm of wind and rain raged over Aber- gele and Pensarn on Friday. A screw-steam flat, supposed to be the Widnes, of Garston, was at anchor in the bay, and bore up bravely till about 3 p.m., when the cable was either slipped or parted, and she came ashore under steam, close to the scene of the Abergele railway accident. She was beached stem on, but soon turned broadside to the breakers, which lashed over her in a fearful manner. Hundreds of quarrymen and others came down to render assis- tance. Trains experienced great difficulty in steaming up the steep bank from Abergele to Llanddulas. In Gwrych Castle park a large number of fine trees have been blown down. At Mr. Millward's drapery establishment two massive patent smoke carers were hurled from a chimney, smashing a large sky- light in their descent.
MARRIAGE. JONES—WILLIAMS—On the 3rd inst., at the Welsh Baptist Chapel, Windsor-street, Liverpool, by the Rev. W. Samuel, Mr J. T. Jones, Flint Colliery, Flint, to Jane, youngest daughter of Mr William Williams, Coed Talon, near Mold, late of Rhyl.

Glycerine, iu these agreeable confections, being in proximity to the glands at the moment they are excited by the act of sucking, becomes actively heal- ing. Sold only in boxes, 7 kl. and Is. ljd., labelled "JAMES Errs & Co., Homceopathic Chemists, Lon- don." A letter received Gentlemen,—It may, perhaps, interest you to know that, after an extended trial, I have found your Glycerine Jujubes of con- siderable benefit (with or without medical treatment) in almost all forms of throat disease. They soften and clear the voice.- Yours faithfully, GORDON HOLMS, L.R.C.P.E., Senior Physician to the Aluui cipal Throat and Ear Infirmary." )
EPITOME OF NEWS. THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF HAMILTON will shortly start for the Mediterranean in their steam-yacht the Thistle. THE EMPEROR WILLIAM having recovered from the effects of a cold under which he laboured, his return to Berlin may be speedily anticipated. ALL OFFICERS OF REGIMENTS quartered in Ire- land who are at present on leave have received orders to return at once to duty. THE SUBSCRIPTION LIST for the Garfield Fund has closed. The total is $357,851, 21 cents. ON THE RETIREMENT of Admiral of the Fleet Sir Thomas Symonds, the present Commander-in-Chief at Devonport, Sir Charles Elliot, will be selected to fill the vacancy, the Controller of the Navy, Sir Houston Stewart, succeeding him. MONSIGNOR IIONCETTI, Papal Nuncio at Munich, is dead. The death at Cairo of Bishop Comboni, the African geographer and Vicar Apostolic, is also announced. A BOARD OF TRADE INQUIRY has been held at Middlesbrough into the stranding and abandonment of the screw steamer Roumania, of West Hartlepool, in the North Sea, off Lowestoft. The certificates of the captain and first mate were suspended for three months. IN THE LATE FINANCIAL YEAR the Customs dutyonwinewas £ l,376,219 7s. 2d., whilst during the same period 955,809 16s. Id. was paid to the officers of the abolished Ecclesiastical Courts. A LETTER, believed to be genuine, has been received at Church Stretton from Sarah Duckett, the heroine of the Shropshire ghost mystery. The writer says she is happily married, and is living in Worcestershire. THE QUEEN and Princess Beatrice, attended by the ladies and gentlemen of the Court, are, according to present arrangements, expected to return to Windsor Castle at an early date. THE NEW HOTEL DE VILLE in Paris, built on the site of the old one, burnt by the Communists in 1871, is fast approaching completion. MR. JOHN RHYS, Professor of Celtic, has been elected a Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford. Professor Rhys was elected to a fellowship at Merton College in 1870, which, however, lie vacated by marriage. He was for some years one of her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools. THE UNUSUAL SIGHT has been lately witnessed of a number of seagulls skimming over the Thames between Waterloo and Westminster-bridges during the prevalence of the great gales. THE DETACHMENT OF THE CONNAUGHT RANGERS which have been stationed for some time past at Pretoria have received orders from Sir Evelyn Wood to remain there, pending the ratification of the Conven- tion by the Volksraad, and is now in the occupation of the city. THERE IS A STRONG FLOW OF EMIGRATION from amongst the miners of Durham to the chief mining centres of America. Emigration agents from the United States now in Durham are offering inducements to men to leave England. IT IS ESTIMATED that during the present year, stock in the Oldham spinning companies has gone up half a million sterling, and is still advancing. KING ALFONSO has conferred the Grand Cross of the Order of Charles III, upon the Marquis of North- ampton, the head of the Mission who went to Madrid to confer the Order of the Garter upon his Majesty. Ax INTERESTING OBJECT of ecclesiastical art, wrought rntirely by hand, has just been finished by an Edinburgh jeweller. This is a cross, over three feet in height, to be placed on the reredos of St. Mary's Cathedral. It is composed of four distinct crosses, ar- ranged in a single cruciform design. The material is oxidised silver and silver gilt. The details are elaborated from old examples of Scottish ecclesiastical art; and the centre is ornamented with bright Scotch crystals. A NARRATIVE OF Madame Sarah Bernhardt's tour in America, written by one of her companions, has just been published at Paris, and is exciting a good deal of attention. THE (JOURT OF INQUIRY into the loss of the Teuton has decided that the ship struck on the outermost ridge of rocks extending beyond Quoin Points, and that she was lost through the faulty navigation of the captain, who was also declared to blame for not having placed the passengers m the boats at an earlier period. The spot where the Teutoii struck is almost opposite the place -1. tu. f/7.J. "t' lYJ.l,tt' tó\ +1, a. pany, was lost some six years ago, and it is pointed out that had Captain Manning but remembered this fact he would have known that there was a sandy cove into which he could have run his ship within a few miles. The fund raised at the Cape for the relief of those wrecked exceeds Y,600, and is being daily augmented by subscrip- tions from country districts. THE second annual exhibition of the Furniture Trades will be held at the Agricultural Hall, between May 1st and 13th in next year. Concerts are to be given every afternoon and evening during the exhibition. A LARGE QUANTITY OF HAY on a truck in a luggage train running between Coventry and Birmingham caught fire recently from a spark from the engine, and was entirely consumed. THERE WERE yet surviving last year pen- sioned servants of Queen Charlotte who drew collectively £ 1-0, and ZCIO was paid to a servant or servants of George Ill. GENERAL SIR FREDERICK ROBERTS will leave almost immediately for India in order to resume tfie-Illdras command. It is, however, scarcely probable that his stay in the East will exceed six months. THE PROPOSAL for a vast central station for London seems about to take a definite shape, and some practical outcome may be reasonably expected at no dis- tant period. Y ALE COLLEGE has adopted the revised version of the New Testament to be read hereafter instead of the version of 1611 at morning prayers and other devotional services. IT IS SEMI-OFFICIALLY STATED IN ROME that the news published to the effect that arrangements had been made for an interview between the King of Italy and the Emperor of Austria is unfounded. AN ENGINEER STUDENT on board the Marl- boroiujli has been detected in the theft of a cheque, and in forging the name of the rightful owner. The Admi- ralty has contented itself with dismissing the culprit, leaving the prosecution to the fellow-student or the bank or nobody. This hardly seems right, says the Arm,ll and Navy Gazette, and the Admiralty law agent at Ports- mouth might have been instructed to take the case up. SIIOBDEN COURT, the seat of Lord Bateman, the Lord-Lieutenant of the county of Hereford, has re- cently been the scene of a burglary, and the clever cap- ture of the robber. His lordship was entertaining a party of guests, when his secretary, who was in his room, heard a strange noise. After looking about to ascertain the cause, lie locked and barred a door leading to some outer passages. Upon turning round he was confronted by a man, whom he seized by the throat and arm, and, after much difficulty, dragged into the servants' hall. His lordship being sent for, at once recognised the fellow as a former butler, named Lloyd. THE PROPOSAL OF THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA that the appointment of Minister of Public Works in the Vice-Regal Council, lately held by Colonel St. Andrew Clarke, should be revived has met with strong opposition at the India Office, and the Secretary of State for India in Council, it is said, has given it as his opinion that the office is unnecessary, and that its renewal would con- stitute a needless tax on the Indian finances, which he is not prepared to sanction without full consideration.

The present chief magistrate of the metropolis has, during his brief term of oiffce, shown so enlightened an interest in all tending to modify the hardships and better the sur- roundings of his fellow-subjects, that it will scarce sur- prise any to find that the need of establishing telegraphic communication between lightships and the shore has at last claimed his lordship's attention and that a meeting for the due consideration of the subject was recently held at the Mansion House,
THE ST. ASAPH DISTRICT HIGHWAY BOARD. The usual monthly meeting of the above Board was held at the County Court Hall, St, Asaph, on Saturday last. In the unavoidable absence of the Chairman the chair was occupied by T. G. Dixon, -bsq., Nant. The other way-wardens present were- Edwin Morgan, Esq., Tremeirchion William Bell, Esq., Rhuddlan; R. Roberts, Esq., St. Asaph R. Fred. Sisson, Esq., St. Asaph; John Kendall, Esq.* Bodelwyddan; Dr. Easterby, St. Asaph; Captain Lean, Talargoch Messrs. Charles Jones, T. Davies, Lemuel Hughes, Rhuddlan; E. Evans, Wm. Davies, Cwm R. E. Griffiths, Gwerneigron; Thos. Parry, Vaenol; W. Williams, W. Jones, Tremeirchion E. Hughes, John Storry, St. Asaph; William Jones, Prestatyn; John Williams, Dyserth. Mr. Charles Grimsley (clerk), and Mr. Lloyd (surveyor), were also present. By a resolution passed at the last meeting of the Board this meeting was made special to consider the time of meeting, the appointment of Vice-chairman, and other matters. THE TIME OF MEETING. At a meeting of this Board held on the 9th of July, it was resolved to alter the time of meeting from 11.30 on the second Saturday in every month to 2.30 on the third Saturday, and according to notice given at the last meeting, Mr. Roberts proposed that that resolution be res- cinded, and that the matter should receive the further consideration of the Board, and said that he had two reasons for doing so. The Chairman had tendered his resignation, and the Vice-chairman had resigned because it was inconvenient for them to attend at the last appointed hour. Other members of the Board laboured under the same inconvenience. He had also a legal contention against the way the resolution of July 9th was passed. The Board had no legal right to alter the time of meeting without full notice being given to the members that;such alteration was in contemplation. Dr. Easterby, in seconding the motion, said that he had been unable to attend since the time of meet- ing had been altered, and he attended that day at considerable inconveniencp and sacrifice, and he noticed that those individuals mostly inconvenienced by the change of time were the most useful members of the Board. Mr. Lemuel Hughes, as an amendment, proposed that the time of meeting should remain as it was- 2.30 every third Saturday in the month, and Mr. Storry seconded the amendment. Mr. Roberts asked the Clerk to take notice of his legal contention. He maintained that the Board had no right whatever to alter the time of meeting with- out giving notice to the members—the notice as to the day of meeting was legally given, they had perfect right to alter the day. The Chairman thought that if they had done an illegal thing, they were bound to undo it. The Clerk said that it was not absolutely necessary to give notice to members of a proposed change in the time of meeting. Mr. Roberts I bow to that. The Chairman put the amendment to the vote, and 11 voted in favour of it, and when the original motion was put a like number favoured that. Several members asked the Chairman to record his vote, but on the ground that the matter immediately concerned himself, he declined doing so. Mr. Edwin Morgan thought, as there were two parties in the matter, and that one of them would suffer in any case, it would be better for them to try to meet one another. He would suggest that they meet at 11.30 in winter and 2.30 in summer, when the farmers would be busy with the harvest, &c. Captain Lean concurred with Mr. Morgan, and several of the way-wardens thought it would be better to meet at 11.30 until the end of the current year (the end of March next), and the matter should then be reconsidered. Mr. Lemuel Hughes then withdrew bis amend- ment, and Mr. Roberts' motion was declared carried, subject to the reconsideration of the matter in March. Mr. Roberts proposed that inasmuch as the time of meeting, and not the day was what he objected to, they should meet on the third Saturday. This was seconded by Dr. Easterby and carried. APPOINTMENT OF VICE-CHAIRMAN. ari. EIAUR saiu, m x'epiy to 6evt>ml members, that he would be very happy to continue vice-chairman, but as his resignation had been accepted at a previous meeting he would have to be re-elected. Mr. Morgan proposed Mr. Dixon's re-appointment as vice-chairman. Captain Lean seconded this, I and it was carried iiem. dis. The Chairman (Sir W. G. Williams) had been in- duced to withdraw his resignation at a previous Board. TURNPIKE ROADS. A letter was read from Messrs. Sisson and George, Solicitors to the St. Asaph and Conway Turnpike Trusts, stating that their trust was about to expire, and that they were writing to the several highway boards, through whose districts their roads extended, asking for the opinions of those boards as to whether it would be desirable to apply for a continuance of the trust, and if so, f0.1. what period. Mr. P. P. Pennant v>i'ote to the Board stating that he was unable to leave France in time to be present at the Board, but if he had been present it was his intention to propose "That it is undesirable to dis- turnpike the roads of the St. Asaph and Conway Turnpike Trusts until some alterations was made in the law relating to the maintenance of Turnpike Roads." lie added that if the roads were thrown upon the public it would be very harsh especially in that district. So many visitors from Rhyl and other places used the roads, and never contribute anything towards repairing the same. The Surveyor stated that about 5 miles of the road under consideration were within the district of this Highway Board. Mr. Bell fully agreed with all that Mr. Pennant had stated, and in his absence he would have great pleasure in proposing That in the opinion of this Board it was undesirable to disturnpike the roads of the St. Asaph and Conway Turnpike Trusts." Mr. Pennant had so ably put the matter before them that he (Mr. Bell) would not add any remarks at all. Mr. Roberts, in seconding the motion, said that to his knowledge a Rhyl car proprietor, who did not contribute a penny piece towards maintaining tho roads, saved £ 1 16s. Od. a week since the abolition of the Rhuddlan Turnpike. Contractors used the roads also, and by a recent Act of Parliament those people could not be held responsible for damage done to roads. Dr. Easterby proposed as an amendment "That in the opinion of this Board it is inexpedient for the trustees of the Turnpike Trusts to apply for extension of power," and said he did so on the grounds of political economy. Legislation for the last 20 years had a tendency to abolish toll-gates. A great many people did not like turnpikes. He did not, and that old woman Rebecca" did not (laughter). The Chairman Is there anyone to second Dr. Easterby's proposition ? A member There are no Rebeecaites in the room (laughter). No one seconded the amendment. The motion was put and carried almost unanimously. Dr. Easterby only voting to the contrary. THE OFFICERS' SALARY. Mr. Lloyd (the surveyor) wrote asking the Board to raise his salary, and Mr. Bell, at the last meeting, had given notice of a motion to raise the Clerk's salary. After both officers had been requested to retire, Mr. Bell said that considering the amount of work to be done and the complicated nature of the accounts fr. Grimsley was entitled to more renumeration for his services. They all knew that Mr. Grimsley was a valuable servant, and he would propose that his salary be raised from X20 to X30. Times were bad now or he would propose a larger extension of salary. Mr. Sisson seconded the motion. Mr. Griffiths moved that the salary should continue to be X,20 per annum, which was seconded by Mr. L. Hughes. Dr. Easterby fully agreed with all Mr. Bell had said, but lie would propose another amendment Though this Board recognized the valuable services of Mr. Grimsley, and admitted the inadequacy of his salary, but the present time was not opportune for rais- ing it." It would be wrong to meet the proposal with a direct negative. The Clerk's services ought to be recognised, and they should promise to raise his salary at a future time. Mr. Storry seconded Dr. Easterbv's amendment, and Mr. Griffiths withdrew his motion in favour of it. Mr. Roberts supported Ir. Bell's proposal. The amendment was put to the meeting, when 1 voted in favour of it, and G in favour of the original motion, which was declared lost. The Surveyor's salary was then considered. In his statement Mr. Lloyd stated that out of his JE90 £ •3.3 18s. Od. went to defray the expenses of a horse and trap, See. Mr. Parry proposed that the salary should not be raised. He did not see what the surveyor wanted with a trap. 1tIr, Bell: He is bound by the terms of his appoint- ment to keep a horse, but I do not know whether he is to keep a trap us well.
