.Uotis Lilb Summary.I
Uotis Lilb Summary. I The calendar submitted to the Grand. Jury at the North Wales aud Cheshire Assizes held. this week was light in point of numbers, and the committals from the Principalty were few indeed, a fact which goes far to prove the high moral character of Welshmen and the absence of crime in Gwyllt Walia." Si/,teen prisoners were tried at the assizes—12 from Cheshire, and four only from the six Welsh counties. One prisoner from Denbighshire died in prison, but another had been committed wince. Though, numerically, the calendar was light, the two charges of uiurder from ISale and Woodley gave it a tinge ul' blackuew which 0 made the discovery of favourable features im- possible. The Judge set forth the circumstances of those charges very concisely in his charge to the Grand Jury, but did not dwell at any length upon the other cases, which were of the ordinary type.
Denbigh and Ruthin are in the midst of their annual electoral (municipal) commotion. In the first named town more than usual interest is manifested in the contest this year. Three of the retiring candidates seek re election, and there are four other nominees (all of whom have in past years occupied seats in the council) in the field. Thus there are seven candidates —four Conservatives and Churchmen and three Nonconformists and Liberals— for four vacan- cies, but "from vox populi we gather that Messrs Thomas (Liberal), Harrison Jones (Liberal Williams (Liberal), and Lloyd (Conservative are likley to be the successful ones. The Con- servatives have brought out picked men with the object, should they be fortunate enough to return those men, of placing the Liberal party hors de combat at the mayoral election on the 9th proximo. If they succeed in this the "presiding genius of the post-office will be placed in the civic chair-a chair upon which he has cast a longing glance for many years. If this does not come about-if Mr Morris is not raised to the height of his ambition-it is almost im- possible to imagine the consequences, but we have the audacity to think that the Denbigh Corporation will not suffer much.
When the sad intelligence of the disaster off Douglas reached us we apprehended the pos- sibilty of Herbert, the son of our respected townsman, Mr R. P, Jones, Dudley Arms. being among the missing. Subsequent reports proved that our misgivings were but too true. Herbert was indeed among the unfortunate number who were on board the life-boat when it capsized, while attempting to land with a portion of the crew of the barque IJebg. Great sympathy is expressed for Mr Jones, the Dudley, and family in their ead beaeavement.
fLuiug, ludt week the parts of the Irish drama hv .eaçh other ill (iui k sUCP.¡;¡- I dr^He.&g I, Government the opportunity to suppress the or- ganisation itself. The opportunity was promptly taken. The result thus far is more satisfactory than perhaps anybody anticipated. The leaders of the agitation had sufficient good sense left to induce them to advise the people not to measure their strength against the Government.. The policy advocated is that of passive resistance. Such action on the part of the farmers will no doubt create vexatious difficulty. It will, how- ever, be confined to a minority. There is already a reaction in public opinion. The people, in cooler moments, will see that it is not worth while to ruin themselves in pursuit of the ultimate object which Mr Parnell has in view- viz., the separation of the country from England. The agitators may be very thankful to the Government for getting them out of a difficulty. They had committed themselves to a policy which was distinctly immoral. They were drifting into extremes which would have proved destruction to society itself. They have been saved from the consequences of their own folly. Their dupes will not leave them. The public will be glad if they return to better ways. If they were in an unprejudiced state of mind they would feel profoundly thankful. They would sing songs of gratitude in Ivilmainham. We do not remember an agitation which failed so absolutely in its appeal to public opinion. In Monarchial countries andinRepublican lands alike the Home Rulers have failed to command sympathy. rI he whole civilized world is against them. If they.would weigh this single fact it would sdrely teach them wisdom. Even Brad. laugh sustains the action of the Government. The nations have observed the patience with which they have been treated. They have observed also how the Government has persisted in the determination to legislate for the benefit of Ireland. Thus, an impession has been created which is now expressed in approval of the Government policy.

Atkins, Esq., organist.—Choral Service on Thursdays at 11.30 a.m., and on Saturdays at 3.1.5 p.m. Many of our readers will see with regret that amongst the number of the crew of the Lehu. who were drowned by the capsizing of the life-boat off Douglas Head was Herbert Jones, son of Mr R. P. Jones, Dudley Arms Hotel, Rhyl. He had for seve eral years previous to his going to sea been a choir boy in the Cathredal, and during that period had made himself a great favourite, especially with the Rev. W. Morton, under whose care he was, and Mrs and Miss Williams with whom he lodged at Lower-st. His singing will be long remembered, particularly his duetts with Mr W. IT. Fowles, fellow chorister, both at cathedral services and at concerts. He will be remembered at Abergele, Colwyn, ColwynBay, Llan. fairtalhaiarn, &c., as the one. who sang the Blue Alsatian Mountains," with such beautiful effect, at those places about two years ago. We understand that if he had survived until last Tuesday h0 would have attained his 17th year. The poor fellow had only returned from a 11 months' voyage to South America in the barque Lehu, and came to Rhyl for a short time. On the 10th of October he was summoned to join his ship, which was lying at Mary port, to take it to Cardiff, and was on that passage when the unfortunate disaster occurred. Much sympathy is felt for relatives and friends. The sad event was feelingly I alluded to at both services in the Cathedral on Sun- day last by Vicar Thomas in the morning, and Canon Edwards in the evenisg. A special hymn was sang, und "Blest arc the departed was played in memor- ium tf- r the evening service, by Master Meyrick Roberts.

THE SITTINGBOURNE STATION on the London, Chatham, and Dover Railway has been broken into, the drawers of the ofiice forced open, and some money stolen. At seven other stations on this line burglaries have been previously committed, so that it is plain that "a new de- parture" from the various platforms of stations is ill con- templation. MARSEILLES is exceedingly anxious to get into its undisputed possession the Imperial residence near that city, presented under different circumstances hy the burgesses of Marseilles to the late Emperor. All the Corporation efforts having failed hitherto, the Marseilles Council have summoned "Hame Eugenie," to appear before the Civil Tribunal to give up possession of that which, it is averred, she retains without right. From AHRAr, in Austro-Hungary, the news comes of another earthquake. As on former occasions, the inhabitants were at tirst aroused by the sound of a sub- terranean noise, the sensation produced by which is des- cribed as almost more appalling than the actual shock. The noise was followed by a violent shock, which lasted three seconds. Many bouses were. thrown down, but hitherto no very serious damage has been ascertained. The. movement was undulating, and the direction from south to north. Ax INTERESTING JUBILEE has itist been cele- brated at Brussels.

Philippe Bourson, who has continued at the head of its staff, without interruption, down to the present lime, and who, notwithstanding his eighty years, still possesses sufficient energy and mental activity to justify his remaining at his editorial post.

THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA has addressed to the Secretary of State for India in Council a strong recommendation that he may be induced to reconsider the clause in the recently-promulgated pension rules which has caused so much disappointment to the officers of the Indian army, by which leave or furlough is not allowed to count as service for pension, and we believe it is not at all improbable that the Marquis of Hartington will be advised to remove this stipulation, or, at any rate, modify the clause. ONE BLACK SHEEP in the Salvation Army, Frederick Spencer by name, has been sentenced to eighteen mouths' hard labour for embezzling various small sums of money belonging to his employer. Prisoner had besides induced a young woman to go and live with him, pre* tending he had good wages, and was "coming ia for a lot of money."

Some time ago one had been sentenced to two months' imprisonment, and the other to one. But at the prison they exchanged names, the consequence being that the one that had really the longest sentence was released first. The other excused himself by saying he was hard up at the time, and was willing to serve a second month for a consideration. The two men were found guilty of conspiracy, and sentence—one to six months' hard labour, the other to three months. GEORGE RAYENSDALE, of very diminutive ap- pearance, but said to he 17 years of age, has been accused at the Mansion House Police-court, London, of wandering and having no visible means of support. His mother declared she could do nothing with him. He lost all his situations, and was a little thief. That was her candid opinion.

Our Tory contemporary has thought well inhis last issue to call attention to "the extravagant remarks and the magnified accounts of the late storm that appeared in the Liverpool daily papers and a certain local newspaper," and said that strangers who might by chance read such reports must believe Rhyl to be situated in a most exposed position, and that the houses are in great peril in a storm." We have no doubt the "local newepaper" referred meant the Advertiser, and we deny the imputation that our report was either extravagant or magnified, or that it calculated to injure the town in the eyes of strangers. We have it on the authority of seamen that such a storm was not experienced in Rhyl since the one in January, 1839. The fact that so little damage, comparatively, was done is in itself a sufficient proof that Rhyl buildings are substantially built, and there was nothing in our report to lead anybody to believe that- Rhyl houses are in great peril in a storm." unless it was read by persons who wilfully misconstrue matters to suit their own designs. Our contemporary's fawning propensity is well- known, and its effusion last week was but a miserable attempt to raise itself in the eyes of the town's people at the expense of traducing other papers.
Our contempoary also reprinted our town clerk's letter from a Liverpool Radical paper. By the way, Mr Journal," why were you so particular in stating the political creed of the paper you republished the letter from ? Did you intend to make a political subject of the gale? or did you mention the fact simply to show your condescension—your stooping to clip a Radical newspaper
