THE ALLEGED CHARGE OF STABBING. Charles Jones was brought up on remand charged with stabbing John Jones, Vile Road. Mr William Davies again appeared for the prisoner and Mr Alun Lloyd watched the case on behalf of Thomas Holland, who was in company with the prisoner when the alleged offence was committed. After the depositions taken in the first hearing were read Prosecutor said that on the 28th of last month, between '11 and 12 o'clock he saw the prisoner ON the road near the entrance to Plas Llewelyn. Prisoner turned back, making motions as if he was going to fight him. Thomas Holland called out Take care of him he is a bad one," prisoner then being at some distance from him. Prosecutor and prisoner closed, and both fell to the ditch. Both got up again still clinging together. One John Roberts came up, and John Jones asked him to speak to prisoner, for he could not, inasmuch as Charles Jones was an Englishman. Witness then went home. Before they fell prisoner ran at him and struck him, but he could not say what with. The blow was struck in the chest. On reaching tome he found himself covered with blood, and nobody but the prisoner had laid a hand on him. The blood issued from a wcund in the breast. He (prosecutor) did not see the prisoner after till to- day. The singlet and shirt (produced, covered with blood) were his, and he wore them when he was with prisoner, who must have caused the cut in the garments, as nobody else had been near him. A doctor was then sent for, and Doctor Thomas attended him. By Mr Davies; When Tom Holland called to him he spoke in Welsh. Prisoner was then from 15 to 20 yards away By the Benoh He went out of the house because he heard a woman screaming. When hg went out, I he saw Ellen Hughes going towards a wheelbarrow, which was in the middle of the road opposite his house. The barrow belonged to Jemimah Mill- ward. Mrs Hughes said that prisoner and Hol- land were taking the barrow, and he not knowing at the time but that it was his barrow, ran after them. Prisoner ran far enough away, but he came up to Holland, but did not take hold of him. When prisoner came up he struck at witness with his fist or something else. He (witne-s) did not show attitude of fighting, but did take hold of prisoner by the collar. This was after he was struck. After John Roberts had s oken to prisoner, he (witnees) bid Charles Jones good pht, and went to the house. When they fell ness was on his knees, and prisoner full length on his back. Dr W. Thomas Brighton Road, was next called. He said he was called between 12 and 1 o'clock, on the morning of the 1st of March. Proscutor was ruffering from an incised wound in the chest The wound was a little less than half an inch in length. It was quite a superficial wound—skin deep, on the third rib on the left. A good deal of blood was oozing out. The wound must have been recently inflicted, and with a sharp inrtrument. It was Lot a dangerous weund. The knife (produced by P.O. McKenna,) was such an instrument as would cause the wound. The man is not in danger now—he is quite recovered. By the Chairman The large quantity of blood must have been caused by the cutting of a small artery. The cut was quite through the thickness of iLe skin, and possibly the rib might have steyed the blow. At first, the man, though in no jumediate danger, wa., not altogether out of langer. Thomas Holland, Castle Street, Rhuddlan, stated that he was present in Vale Road when John and Charles Jones were together. When John Jones went up to him, prisoner was from 12 to 15 yards away. Prosecutor asked who the prisoner was. and he stated his own name, but could not supply that of the prisoner, as he did not know it. When this was going on, Chas. Jones came up, and prosecutor ran at him as if to strike him. Charles Jones then tried to get away. In doing so he fell and Joan Jonas fell on him, and abused him. striking him with his fist about the head and face. He heard prisoner saying when he was abused, "I will stab you." When they got up John Jones took hold of Charles Jones by the coat collar, as if to take him towards Rhyl, but Charles Jones kept pulling backward. Just at that time a John Roberts came up, and asked John Jones what was the matter. On the interposition of John Roberts, John Jones let Charles Jones go, and gave him a push. Charles Jones picked up his hat, but before they left, witness told the parties to shake hands, and they did so, and they pro- ceeded home. By Mr Davies: Charles Jones when he came back did not rush at John Jones, but walked up quietly, but John Jones tried to strike him. He (witness) did not call out to John Jones to take care of himself, for Charles Jones was going to do something to him. He did not see Charles Jones striking John Jones, nor did he hear John Jone& making any complaints of having been "truck. He (witness) was brought up with Oh:, Junes and kept at the office till about 12.30 noon on Sunday, when he was allowed to go, having first stated what he knew of the matter. At one stage of the proceedings a cheer was given in court when the Chairman observed that this was a very seriout3 case, and one of a nature which they happily.seldom met with in this country. He hoped those present in court would not make such a noise again. John Roberts, saddler, Vale Road, on being called said he saw the prisoner and the prosecutor, o together on the night in question, but did not see Charles Jones striking John Joneo, but the latter was dragging him out of the ditch. P.C. James McKenna deposed that on getting a description of the prisoner, he went to Rhuddlan, and apprehended prisoner at his lodgings in Parliament Street, Rhuddlan. Prisoner was asleep in bed. He awoke him, asked him what time he left Rhyl on the previous night and was answered Eleven o'clock." His clothes were on a chair on the bed side and were very dirty, and prisoner accounted for that by saying he had had a bother with a man that followed him. Witness searched the prisoner's clothes, and found the knife produced in his trousers pccket. The knife was closed, and there was a lot of dirt on the handle and blade. There were two or three other spots, but he could not say whether they were blood spots or not. Prisoner admitted the knife was his, and was then told he must go to Rhyl. While dressing himself prisoner wanted to know on what charge he was taken to Rhyl, and he (witness) replied On the charge of stabbing a man." He said I did not stab him, my knife was never out of my pocket. We had a scuffle and he bled my face and hurt my hand." Prisoner was then taken int? custody. custody. Inspector McLaren then produced the man's clothing. He said he went to John Jones* house with Dr Lloyd and found Dr Thomas tbere. He waited there till the wound was dressed and then took possession of the clothes produced. They were covered with blood, and each had a out in the left breast. This being the case, Mr Davies eubmitted there was no case likely to incline the minds of a jury to convict the young man of the crime he was charged with. The Justice thought a prima facie case had been made, and the prisoner was formally charged and pleaded not guilty. Mr Davies then said he would reserve his defence. The Chairman hoped that the use of the knife was not to be introduced to this part of the country as it was in some parts of England. It was the first case he had had before him and hoped it would be the last. It was a most un-British thing for a man to draw out his knife when he lost the day, and he hoped no Welshman would ever be guilty of it. Prisoner was then committed to take his trial at the next quarter sessions, the justices signifying their willingness to accept bail—prisoner ir. £ 50, land two sureties in £ 25 each, or one in £ 50.—The I su'eties not forthcoming, the prisoner was removed kin custody.

ST. ASAPH DEBATING SOCIETY. 1 At the last meeting of this Society the subject I under discussion wii.- Is the Spendthrift or the I Mier the more benofici l to society F" The debut e was opened by Mr Salisbury June", who read extracts from a bouk. which tended to support the I theory that the spendthrift exercised a better influence thin the miser. For though the spend- thrift's character was one which all honourable and high-minded men would abhor, yet through all his waywardness, through all his recklessness, and through all his folly, there was a spirit of generosity, which lifted him above the man whose 'sole delight, whose sol6 employment, and whose sole aim was the accumulation of mcney. In thus advocating the better side of the spendthrift's character-Mr Jones, through the medium of his book-did not 'n any way gloss over its wickedness. He thought that there could be no sight more deplorable or more humiliating than the sight of a young man spending his money on foolish- ness, and indulging in all the pomps and vanities of this wicked world. Doubt- less this young man possessed the advantage of education, of money, a- d of social position, which many of poorer station might envy. yet all these advantages were thrown away wilfully and thoughtlessly, to gratify his sensual desires, in other words, to lower his standard of morality, to ruin his position, pecuniary and social, and to ruin his health, and finally to bring him home the miserable wreck of his former self, a burden, and a trouble to his relations and friends. From such a sight the ordinary human beintr would turn with abhorrence. But what met his view on the other hand-the miser-what word was more expressive of the subjection of all the noblest feelings of our common humanity, of the suppression of Avery feeling which tended to raise us above the beasts of the fields, or the fowls of the air, whom we affect to despise in our egotism, as being far beneath us, in purity of feeliug, in nobility of purpose and intellectual powers. Without any hesitation, be could assert that in worshipping this God of his creation, this god of gold, the miser but repeated the sin of Aaron, which centuries ago. brought the first anger of Almighty God on the Is: \elites. In all the records of misers-and there were many— he could not recall any one instance of the exhibition of any kindly feeling of the recounting of any deed or of the elevating influence over others ex- ercised by misers. He need scarcely mention the names of George Elwes. or of Daniel Dancer, and his sister—those abject wretches—that exem- plary brother and sister, who lived and died in the foulest and filthiest degradation. Such creatures a& a miser can scarcely be classed among human beings, for he kills by the indulgence of his one passion, all the habits and the better desires which characterize the human race. He sets himself aparts from the rest of mankind and lives a life of penury and of selfishness, which, even the faults and follies of the spendthrift, rob not of their loathsomeness. A miser never fostered trade, whereas a spendthrift, if he had accomplished naught else in his career of imprudence, at least benefited his fellow-creatures in that instance. Mr Alun Lloyd, though unprepared to take a part in the debate, yet felt constrained to say a few words. He would not agree with all that Mr Jones had enuntiated. rather it was his belief that a miser exerted a more beneficial influence over mankind than did a spendthrift, who, by his wicked actions, laid homes waste, desolated loving hearts, and ruined the life, with which God had entrusted him. He could advise the boys and young people present, to cultivate habits of thrift. To be care- ful of their money, and when they did spend it, to spend it in such a manner as to derive a benefit from that expenditure. Nothing was more to be desired in these times of comp3tition, than habits of industry, of perseverance, and of carefulness. And he thought that fathers and mothers, pastors and guardians, governors and teaobe.s, should use their utmost endeavours to inculcate these desirable habits in the young children confided to their care. The spendthrift had no real friends, for as soon as he was without money, all the persons who affected his society when he was prosperous, left him. All knew that the spending of money commanded friends, so-called for sooth, so that as long as a man possessed this key to the enjoyment of life, he was smrounded by people who were willing to serve him but as soon as this was wanting, as soon as his money was all gone, then was he left alone, then did all his butterfly friends take unto themselves wings and leave him. So death would come, and find him unprepared. So death would come, and as its shadow fell over the wretched being, so could the tinges of remorseful conscience and talents neglected, opportunities lost, and a life wasted, assail his mental vision. Rev Benjamin Hughes said that, as it were, he was between two stools, for each gentleman had described in a forcible manner the evils of the tWO characters. These evils, whilst he had listened, bad assumedlso great a prominence in his mind as to cause him to think that both the miser and the spendthrift were x.either more nor less than scourges to society, and Hia' uo g >d could be expected as the losuh uf ilt ir act ons Mr Joves, Post Office, thought that on the whols, the spendthrift, in that he spend, money, and so did good to trade, was the better man of the two. The miser simply collected money, and did no good with it. He carried out the spirit of the parable, for he wrapped his talent in a napkin and used it not. His vices were negative rather than positive, and as such he was to be commended. Rev Ll. Williams said that Aristotle bad himself disexesed the same subject, and had pronounced in favour of the miser and he (the reverend speaker) thought that the words of so wise a man as Aris- totle should carry weight with them. He thought that the deductions of one who had devoted his life to the study of mental science, were worthy of re- cognition in this the later half of the nineteenth century. He should, therefore, vote in support of the miser. Dr Easterby, the learned president, before put- ing the vote to the meeting, wished to say a few words on the subject under discussion. He thought that the pit per that had been read was based en- tirely on sentiment and not on science, and was, therefore, valueless. He thought, too, that the term miser ought to have a wider meaning given to it than it had received that evening, and if such was the case, then a good many of our large cap- italists-most useful men-mig,it then, perhaps, be included in the term and if that were the case, then they were the real benefactors of the country, for they supplied the capital which fed the labour- ers who produced the wealth of England. Only four voted in favour of the spendthrift, and so t miser proved a victor by an immense major- ity. The meeting broke up with the usual vote of
thanks. BIRTH. SALTTSBUBY.—On the 27th ult.,at Hafod-y-ooed, St. Asaph, the wife of Captain E. P. Salusbury, of a daughter. MARRIAGES.

THE WAR IN THE SOUDAN. RETREAT OF THE MAHDI A telegram from Korti to the Daily Telegraph, pays that the Mabdi is reported to have gone to Abbah Island, which is about 130 miles south of Khar- to'lW, on the White Nile, where be commenced his career as a holy man. So great has been the neglect of cultivation owing to the absence of the male popu- lation from their villages,that great discontent exists among the Mahdi's followers, and food is scarce. It if stated that a rising against the Mahdi's Emir at Khartoum, who is his nephew, may be expected. The Mahdi himself lives in dread of assassinate n, which is probably the reason of his retiring to Abbah Island. The enemy who followed Bracken- bury's force were probably part of the Monassir tribes who had fled from their country on the approach of tLe English. The following is an extract from a letter which the Mahdi wrote on the 1st of February to Khasn- j el-Moos when on board one of the steamers at Meta-nmeh You are aware that we have been trying to save you, but you are trying to destroy yourselves. You sent to summon the English, but i-hou d the English come and take you with them to Europe, Rome, and Constantinople, ie;cr. bt-r always that we shall have the victory as promised by our Prophet. If you live you will see the power o? the Mahdi spread over Europe, Rome, and Con- stantinople, after which there is nothing for you but hell." THE RETIREMENT ON KORTI: General Buller's forces are now daily arriving at Korti. They march down in detachments, in order that each party may obtain sufficient water at the wells. Lcrd Charles Beresford's Narttl Brigade and the Artillery came in on the 7th, and Colonel Talbot, with the Heavy Camel Brigade, arrived on Sunday. According to the correspondent of the Stan lard, the men who came in on foot look thin and worn, but are in good health and spirits. The camels have suffered terribly of all those which went out with the Heavy Brigade six weeks ago only four have returned with them. In a despatch from G;ikdul the Chronicle's correspondent says: An incident, which caused a momentary stir in the camp, occurred just before the Naval Brigade left. Several natives, to all appearance, however, inarmed were seen in the distance intently watching the movements of the sailors. Some of our people made a move in their direction, but the fellows promptly bolted when they found that concealment was no longer possible. With this doubtful excep- tion we have seen nothing of the enemy for some time paat. The last-named correspondent is now at Korti. In an account of his journey from Gakdul he says :— The march was a most trying one, the heat alone being most distressing. We reached Jebel-el-Kelb, some 20 miles from Gakdul, on the 2nd inst. Some- what to our surprise we found an excellent supply of water at that place, infinitely superior in fact even to the famous wells at Gakdul. Colonel Talbot, seeing the importance of the place to our retreating troops, has thrown up light earthworks, and has otherwise fortified it with the view of defending the wells agninst rowling bodies of the enemy, who might attempt to render them useless to our men. We reached El Howeiyat wells, 55 miles from Korti, on the 4th inst. The khamsin will, I am afraid, add greatly to the sufferings of our men on the retreat. It is a hot southerly wind, which generally com- mences to blow about this season 'of the year, and, us a rule, lasts for quite 50 days. Its effects on the human system are very distressing, producing a sen -e of weariness or languor and physical weak- nes. Animals are equal y affected-even the hardiest camels. Whilst we Wde at El Howeiyat new?, ap. parently trustworthy,was brought into camp that the Hassaniyeh tribes were actively preparing to harass our retreat. A considerable body were said to have as- sembled at El Kalan wells, 16 miles from El Howeiyat. They had been joined by 100 experienced riflemen detached from the Berber garrison, and they were expected to operate from the direction of the Mtrawi road. The news was heliographed back, and will, it is hoped, reach General Wood at Gakdul in time to enable him to guard against surprise, and to enable the necessary arrangements for giving the reb-I- a warm reception should they venture to put in an pearance. It is not probable, however, that the re will be any freh fighting. The last stages of our mnrch were the m ist trying, the heavy road and the fierce heat of the sun exhausting even many of the hardy Kababish camels. Some of our fellows could scarcely stagger along, and there were very few who did not suffer terribly. BRACKENBURY AND HIS MEN. From a correspondent at Merawi, we obtain the following interesting particulars of General Bracken- bury's review of his troops :— Although after the hard work of the past few weeks the troops looked somewhat ragged in appear- ance, every man on parade was in splendid condition. After the customary in-pection General Bracken- bary made a cheery speech to the brigade, in the course of which he warmly thanked officers and • is sp tjndid behaviour under unaccustomed ■ tvyi.ia' circumstances. They would shortly] -e^arate for the purpose of going into their summer rju u ters, and he had called them together before they broke up in order that he might have the opportunity of expieasing his acknowledgments for their pat services. "The way in which this brigade has worked," concluded the General, "will be mentioned in history." in history." LETTER FROM OSMAN DIGNA. Thiee Bedouins, belonging to the tribe of the Amaras, have brought to Suakiin a letter from Osman Digna to the General commanding the British forces, the contents of which are given by the correspondent of the Standard :— Osman begins by recalling the chief events of the Soudan War during the last two years. He recounts the defeat and annihilation of the army of General Hicks, the defeat of Baker Pasha, the capture of Sinkat and Tokar, the fall of Khartoum, the death of General Gordon, and the retreat of Wolseley, driven back by the Mahdi to Dongola. After recounting these triumphs—he says nothing about El Teb and Tamanieb—he announces that the fall of Kassala is imminent, and that the triumph of the Mahdi in the Soudan will then be thorough and complete. After this preamble he solemnly warns the General not to sally outside the walls of Suakim, as if he does so his army will be driven into the sea, none being spared save those who will embrace Mahometanism and become soldiers of the Mahdi. At the same time Oilman has bent by the three Arabs a. message to Mahmoud Ali,chief of the friendly Amaras in Suakim, ordering him to return at once to his allegiance to the Mahdi, whose victories prove beyond all question his divine mission, and threatening him with death should he continue to reside among the Infidels. Osman tells the chief that the British are doomed, for that 7,000 dervishes have arrived to reinforce him, and that Suakim will be wiped off the face of the earth.
TRIPOLI, TUNIS, AND THE MAHDI. The Vienna correspondent of the Daily Tele- graph sends the following notes which he ha* received from a friend at present travelling in Tunis The capture of Khartoum by the Mahdi forms the all-absorbing topic of interest here. Only a short time ago the French residents rubbed their hands at every dearly-bought victory of the English. Tliefall of Khartoum has, however, furnished them with matter for reflection. They dread the progress of the Islamite revolution from Nubia to the Mediteranean, i all the more as the conviction prevails that the British force in Upper Egypt will not prove strong enough to check the daily increasing hordes of the Mahdi. In official oircles it is considered high time that France should come to an under- standing with England and Italy, and that a Franco Italian expedition should proceed to Tripoli, either with or without the Porte's sanction. Infor- mation has been received here that Tripoli is overrun with the Mahai's emissaries. The native population in Tunis is outwardly quiet enough, but there can be no doubt that they are following events in the Soudan with the keenest interest, and confideiitly anticipate the triumph of the Mahdi. The am- nesty Ianted after the death of thr insurgent chief, Ben Kalifa Tov, to the fv.hr.aves who sought refuge in Tripoli has not been taken advan- tage of by the latter, and, under present circumstances the measure is doomed to failure. Reports have lately reached us of Eerious difference of opinion botween the highest English civil and military authorities in Egypt in connection with Prince Hassan's mis-ion. The former will, it is believed, resign his post within the next three months,
A bill by which brewers will have to shew by labels on their barrels or bottles just what their ale or lager boer is made from, has passed the third reading in tho New York Senate.

RHYL. AT the weekly meeting of the Brnnpwick and Zoar Young Men's Literary and Theo- logical Society, on Monday evening. Mr John Jones, Morfa Bach, read a very able paper on Stability of mind in its relation to charac- ter." EDUCATIONAL.—From the Cambridge list just issued it appears that Miss Lily Roberts kp]as Isa, Ruthin) has passed the senior Cam- bridge University Local; Miss Clara Pringle (Rbyl), and Miss Margaret Ellen Owen (Pen- rhyndendraeth) havo each passed the Junior Cambridge in third class honours. EDUCATIONAL SUCCEss.-We observe, in the I Class- lists of the Cambridge University, Local Examinations, recently issued, the name of Walter Polsford Webster, a younger son of the Principal of St. Thomas's College, in this town, who passed, as a junior, although be is only 14 years of age. This young boy is a Foundation Scholar, at the Leatherhead School, for the sons of the Clergy, and it ap- pears that in 1881, his first year, the Classical Prize, iu bis Form, was awarded to him, be being under eleven years of age; and we notice that labt year, he again carried off the I Classical Prize, Maeter Webster having reach- ed the Fourth Form at the time, and since then we understand that he has been pro- moted to the Lower Fifth. MINISTERIAL CHANGES.—We are informed that the Rev. Richard Peart, of Llandudno, has accepted an invitation to labour in the Blackpool Weslevan Circuit, for 1885; and that the Rev. W. Foster, B.A. Rhyl, has accepted an invitation to the Cheetham Circuit, Manchester, both of course, subject to approval of Conference. HOME MISSION?,—On Thursday evening, at the English Wesleyan Schoolroom, Morley Road, a public meeting was held to advocate the claims of the Wesleyan Methodist Home Mission and Contingent Society. The Rev. Dr. Raby, Principal of Epworth College, presided, and there was a very numerous audience. The meeting was commenced with praise and prayer, conducted by the Rev. W. Foster, B.A., after which the Chairman called upon the Rev. T. Wilde of Colwyn Bay (supei- intbndent of the Llandndno aLd Rhyl Circuit), to read the Society's report. Mr Wilde, in a very concise and interesting manner, explain- ed the objects of the Society, and gave a brief statement of its present financial position. Primarily, the objects of the Society were two. One was embraced in the word contin- gent," out of its funds were defrayed various expenditures to meet which there was no organised connectional fund. The other ob- ject was, the helping of dependent circuits. But now the Society had six or seven differ- ent objects-such as (1) the employment of connexioral evangelists. Three or four men supported by the Society had been set apart to carry on evangelistic work. This was quite a new thing, and great good had result- ed from it. (2) The supporting of a certain I number of ministers, who had been set apart as district missionaries. These ministers had no stationary circuits, but were itinerate, moving about, up and down the various districts. (3) The Society was doing a great work in the Army and Navy. It had agents doing a good work as chaplains in the garrisons, naval establishments, hos- pitals, &c. Two or three were at the present time serving as chaplains, recognibed by the War Office, with the troops in foreign parts. (4) The Society also supported a class of agents called missionary ministers. (5) Also a large iItafI of lay agents, in the large towns, such as Liverpool, Manchester. &c. (6) There were no less than 300 circuits who were more or less supported by the Society, chiefly in the South of England, (7) It still continued to be a contingent fund. He Bhowed that in these various wtys the Society did a vast amount of excellent work. The income of the Society for the year endirg with the Conference of 188i was £ 35 140. The expenaiture during the same period was £ 35,226 shewing a de. ficit of 285 3s Od which added to the deficit of lost year, amounted to 9282. Towards I the income of the Society the Rhyl and Llandudno circuit bad contributed JE28 8 4d, including a sum of JE2 2s collected by juven- including a sum of £ 2 2s collected by juven- iles. The subscriptions, he remarked, came all from one place, viz., Llandudno. He did not think there was one bingle lsume from Rhyl amongst the subscribers. He did not! mention this fact as a reproach, but if they considered it so, be hoped they would this year wipe it off, and that next year contribu- tions could be announced from Rhyl and Colwyn Bay. He strongly urged the claims of the Society to the sympathy and practical support of the audience, and mentioned that the fact that the church in Rhyl received a great deal from the Society was a powerful reason why they should support it. The rev. gentleman concluded his address with a few words of kindly advioe to the young meH from the college, who were present in large nurabers.-The Chairman next delivered a short address, dwelling upon the results of the work carried on by the Society.-The next 'I speaker was Mr John Hebden, a home mission. ary from Liverpool, who delivered a powerful full of with thrilling incidents and facts which had come under his personal; observation during many years mission labour in the courts and slums in one of the lowest parts of Liverpool, When he sat down he was loudly applauded. — The Rev. R. W. Boyns, of Waterloo, was the deputation, and was next called upon, but be willingly gave way, deferring his speech until some future time, in order to give further time to Mr Hebden, who again rose, and farther electri- fied the audience with his Yorkshire elo- quenoe, and his truly astounding story of the triumphs of the simple Gospel amongst the lowest, most debased, and wretohed classes of men, women, and children.—Following Mr Hebden's address, a collection was made, and the meetiog was brought to a close by the! singing of the doxology, and prayer by the Rev, W. Evans-Foote, PLEASANT EYENINGS." Another of these pleasing and successful series of enter. tainments, for the present winter, was held on Monday evening. The Rev. E. Lloyd Jones presided, and there was a very respect- able and numerous audience. A capital programme bad been provided, and was thoroughly enjoyed. A hearty vote of thanks was passed the chairman and the performers. A DISAPPOINTMENT. The popular Welsh preacher, Rev. E. Herber Evans, Carnarvon, had been announced to preach twice on Sunday last at the Welsh Congiegabionali Chapel, Queen-street but late on Saturday evening, the frieEds, to their great regret and disapointment, received information that the rev. gentleman would be unable to keep his engagement owing to serious illness A large congregation had assembled on Sunday morning, and their disappointment can very easily be iMagiDed, Nir Evaus being very highly esteemed and beloved by Welshmen generally. The Rev. J. J. Will lams, Baptist Minister, very kindly occupied the pulpit in the morning, and Mr Arthur Rcwlande in the evening. In the afternoon, as announced, the Rev. E. Lloyd Jones preached a powerful sermon in Welsh to a large congregation. THE CODCleteiLht experiment on the Wes promenade is now being proceeded with. Ox Thursday evening a miseeltaneous, entertainment was given at the Zoar Chapel, Yale-road, in which the Sunday school scholars and a few adults took pan. There was a gooa audience.

ST. ASAPH COUNTY COURT. YESTERDAY—Before His Honour, Judge Lloyd and Mr Registrar George. There were 97 ordinary plaints entered, 15 judgment summonses, and one adjournec action. A PAINTER'S CLAIM A JURY CASE. In this case Mr William Reynolds, painter and decorator, Rhyl, sued Mrs Taylor, a lady of independent means, residing at Boderw, St. Asnph, for the sum of £10 for work done. — Mr Edward Roberts appeared for the plain- tiff, and Mr Alua Lloyd defended. Messrs R. J, Edleston, Rhydorddwy Fawr R. Roberts, Dyserth Hall E. Jones, Dyserth R. Roberts. Llewerllyd Mills and Hatwood, Rbyl, were sworn on the jury. After Mr Roberts had opened the case, he called The plaintiff, and :from his evidence it would appear that the original sum due was 260, amount of contract and extras on paint- ing, and other work dcne at B)derw. A cheque for £4-0 was sent in full discharge, with a request that, if he did not accept tha* offer, the cheque be returned next day. This was not done, and for the defence it was contended that by aocepting the cheque the account, which at first was disputed, was discharged. In directing the jury his Honour said no doubt Mrs Taylor smarted under the account, which wat for B62, when the original contract was JB29. An all-important letter was sent with the cheque, asking Mr Reynolds to return the cheque if it was not accepted in discharge, by first post. The plaintiff knew the terms when the cheque was sent. He avoided using a form of receipt sent, but wrote received by cheque from Mrs Taylor £ 40, thanks." Not a word about the payment being on account. But a letter was sent by Mr Reynolds, saying ho would let the matter stand over uotil a practical mm could examine the work. That hiBHonour contended wiisj) an appeal the generosity of Mrs Taylor. He knew that if he gave the slightest intim a- tion that it was not accepted in discharge the obeque would be stopped, and he gave receipt in such terms as would lead the defendant to believe that the X40 had been accepted in full receipt. And the question for the jury was to decide that point. After a short consultation the jury found for the defendant. The judge quite concurred with the verdict. HOTEL LIFE. Robert Lloyd, Mostvn Hotel, Rhyl, sued Mr Isbmael J ones, of Flint, for 25 for board, lodging, damages caused, &c., and money lent Mr Edward Roberts for the plaintiff, and Mr William Davies for the defendant. It appears that Mr Jones when he was at variance with his wife and family, ha was not in a fit state to be in a strange place, and plaintiff had to procure articles, clothing, &c. By reason of the state the defendant was in, certain damages were occasioned in the hotel. Mr Jones gave a check for £5 which was dishonoured on the plea that defendant was not sober when he signed it. The case was ajourned to the next court at Rhyl.
SHOCKING ACCIDENT TO A CHILD AT GRONANT. An inquest was held on Tuesday at Gronant Inn, befcre Mr M. D. Roberts, deputy-coroner, upon the body of Evan Thomas Luke, between four and five } years of age, son of John Luke, who was killed on the previous day by being run o/er by the up mail train due at Gronant siding about one o'clock. It appeared that the child was going to the shore a cumpaoied by his cousin, Marj Elizabeth Luke, and her little brother and sister. In order to reach the shore they had to cross the railway, and the three little children went over first leaving Mary Elizabeth Luke in the road. Deceased ran back to her and asked her to open the gate, and she went across with him, taking hold of his hand. After she had opened the gate, deceased loosed her hand and ran again across the line, when he fpll. Aftor she turned to close the gate she saw that a train was passing be- tween herself aud the deceased, and she ran for as- sistance to Mrs Jones, at Gronant siding.—John Williams, driver of the mail train, said that he no- ticed some children in the fields on the shore side on the track, but he did not discover anything on the line. The Jury returned a verdict of 11 Accidental death."
KOOTBALL. LLANDUDNO SCHOOLS V. EBURY COLLEGE, RHYL. This match was played on the ground of the former on Saturday last, and resulted in a victory for the home team by 4 goals to 2. The play during the first half was very even, and it was not until 40 minutes had elapsed, that Davies placed a goal to the credit of the college. On changing ends, Llandudno quickly made the score level, Tolson pcoriDg from a good kick. Some good play was now shown by both sid-,8, the backs especially being kept busy, but the home forwards fairly romped about the visitors, and after a; splendid pi ce of play, the ball being passed from the left wii g to the right, Aickin centred beauti- fully to Jo ses V., who with grand screw kick made the score 2 to 1 in favour of the home team. Again and again was the college goal in jeopard the school forwards playing well together, and Mark at full back emboldening his confreres by hi a steady play and sure kicking. A little later on. however, the home goal was in danger, but Morgan cleverly punched the ball away. The: school now came away with a rush, and after a pass from Jones V.T, Aickins scored the ord goal foi his team. The college forwards, following up well, after the kick off, kept the ball in the home quarters, and at length their efforts were rewarded, Brown securing their second goal. As it was now near time, both sides played up with great vigor, and Llandudno added another goal to their score, Williams VI kicking the ball through. The visitors were a far heavier and taller lot than the home team, but were quite unable to cope with the clean and rapid passing of their small, but plucky j opponents. Fur Llandudno besides those mention- ed Owen, Williams I., and Davies II. played very I well, while for Rhyl Collingwood and Jones were the best players. LLANDUDNO V. LLANBWBT SCHOOLS. This match was played at Llandudno on Wed- nesday last, and resulted in a victory by four goals to nil. Nothing worthy o notice occurred till just before half time when Aickin (captain) scored for the home team. On change of ends the game became much faster and each team made strenuous efforts to score. The home backs played well together, tackled and kicked with great judgement; and accuracy and each time repulsed the attack of the opposing forwards, Marks being especially noticeable. After some good passing between Tolson ano Aickin, the latter again scored and deservedly so, his play throughout being very good. No sooner had the ball been kicked off than Llandudno agfin scored, Toison bein, successful after a prei ty pass by Williams V-L. Some corner kicks here fe 1 to the home te&m and out of a scrimrna e iu frout of goal, Williams scored the the fourth and lajt goal for his side. Altogether the ga "v as most enjoyable. For Llanrwst Mr Httrdw --k Lt half back was the maiustay of the team, Heiur and Hill being also conspicuous For Llaududno Mr bignol i, Davies II, Jones V, and Ovvens also played very we.l.

*iorcv-i wa Wirm.—xiiere &re many meu wlio seem to consider their wives as cajiablt- of understanding nothing but what relates io drets or cooking, and they would smile at the folly of talk ng with them on any mattti which relates to business. We are aware v at there aie women of whom it would be foily to make confidants in such tilings women whi) are reckless and thoughtless en üg-h to urge their husbands into all sorts of ex'.ravapance, that their pride and vanity may be gratified, regardless wholly of results, and would pettishly tefuse to listen to any explana- tion of business affairs; yet we think even such wculd be far fewer if, from the first, husbands weie accustomed to confide to them their plans and to seek their advice. If a wife be always treated a; not fit to know anythirg of her husband's affairs, if her questions receive only cold and half-scornful replies, it is not to be wondered at if she soon ceases to ftei any interest or have any thoughts about them and if, by and bye, it should be found in a practical way that she does not seem to "know much of the value of money," or "how much it costs to get it," or even "where it comes from," the reticent husband need not wonder. The intuitions of a woman are better and readier than those of a man her quick decisions without reasons are frequently far superior to a man's most careful deductions. He is a wise husband who makes use of his wife's shrewdness and womanly sagacity, the fruits of this faculty. Many and many a man would have been saved from ruin hal he consulted his wife and acted upon her advice beforeheembaike.d in his enterprises. And how often would a husband find aim J6t all the bitterness taken out of his reverses did be bring his wife's powerful aid to help luai through them.

BAND AND ENTERTAINMENT. To the Editor of the RHYL ADVEBTISEB. Sin,-As I have had the managerbent of the Pier, and at the present time am in the employ of the Proprietor of the Jardens, I take strong exception to the offensive remarks of Rttepaver in your last issue, on what he please- to call the mismanage. ment of these places of amusement, and I deny the I accuracy of his statement. As a matter of fact, the Pier Company's affairs, during my term of office, were managed in such a manner that a good divi- deud was paid to the sh-ireho uers, and no doubt whatever exists in my mind that if the affairs of the town had been carried on as at that time a fair dividend would have been declared up to now. But with an increased number in the Promenade Band, and our streets turned into a huge musi; hall stage, upon which may be found a variety entertainment, including niggers, performing dogs, mot keys, birds, comic and sentimental singers, organ grindeis, German bands, &c. &c., at any hour of the day, who pay nothing, or next to nothing, to the town for these privileges, how can it be expected that our public buildings can pay a dividend, or keep open their doors ? Aud as to his insinuation that I bad been &ent to the board in the interest of the Gardens, all I can say that the fact alone of the rat-payers placing me there is a sufficient answer, and, su far as the Proprietor of the Gardens is con- cerned, no pressure was brought to bear upon me by that gentleman to influence my vote at the Board when elected my hands were perfectly free, anr he would most certainly condemn any action of mine inconsistent with the interests of the town, the welfare and prosperity of whioh, I can safely may, has always received his warmest support and consideration. As Ritepayer," flatters himself that he knows what would draw the public, I would suggest to him that he should venture into a speculation by at once renting the town hall for the summer months. During :the whole of last season this building (for which we townspeople have paid an enormous sum of m <ney; failed to find a single occupant for enter- tainments, and probably, with the town's present arrangements, the same state of things will exist during the forthcoming season. Ratepayer would lead the public to think that I am anxious to put aside Mr Gilding, (who seems tv be a pet of his), and all other kind of street entertainments. I wish for nothing of the sort. My opinion is, that their Rervices should be so used as not to clash with the arrangements of the entertainments given at our public buildings, to which we should give some protection and support. If "Ratepayer" should feel disposed to educate me, and others, who make it their business to provide amusements (up to the present he has not attempted), I shall be pleased to accept such ilaformation as be can give roe, but not under a "on de plume. Let him and others who wish to discuss this question, and who have the prosperity of the town at heart, be not ashamed of their names. -Your& respectfully, SAMUEL BZEEINOTOK. I
MOSTYN UNDER A CLOUD. To the Editor of th, RHYL ADVBBTISBE. Srul-N-ever within living memory has this neighbourhood lain under such a black oloud of adversity as that which has hung over it in growing menace since the disaster of July, 1884, when all the coalmines were irrecoverably flooded. Hun- dreds of colliers were thrown en matte into enforced idleness, and as yet no door of hope has opened to them here. The able-bodied among them went instantly to seek work anywhere, but owing to the universal paralysis of trade in the country, disap- pointment met tnem almost at every corner, new bLLti-ds were not required." Nowhere is the havoc wrought by the disaster so staring- as in the chapels here the congregations I are scattered; the new edifices are well nigh emptied but *he desolation is nowhere more signal than in the Congregational Cnapel. I We had newly built our cùmmodious chapel, and it lay under a heavy debt, in mitigation of which we could only utilize the Sabboth School collections. Each Sabbath we atnasse 1 easily, from 25s. to 30s., but when we ware yoked to the task of reducing it to zero, down topples the black avalanche of dis- aster, aud so scattered the valiant for work iu body and soul, that the payment of interest falling due gave us painful anxiety. But the black cloud was suddently fringed with rippling silver, for the Jubilee Committee," sent us a promise of L5, to start with. We had for some time contemplated some essen- tial embellishments to be d.,re outside of ourobapel. but we were without the wherewithal, when happily one day Enoch Lewis, Esq., Mostyn Quay, passed by. and his cultivated eye ncting the bareness of the place, his generou naiure promptly Lad a woodman to flank our blauk entrance with dainty youngling evergreens, and so compensated in some degree tbq desolateness from the loss of our people by a brotherhood of crescent trees. I have no yard measure long enough I have sought one fur fifteen years, and it needs a stellar one, to measure the vast depth of generosity of Mr Lewis' heart. Following close upon Mr Lewis' gracious sylvan gift, comes an enquiry from a gentleman, whom I do not know personally, though more than once have received of the bounties of his kindness, if any of our congregation had suffered deeply from the mine-flooding, accompanied with a cheque for their relief, addiug a chiuge to allow no one to be in want, as more succour should follow. Many around us had generous hearts but lacked the means of giving their feelings fruition in deeds. Besides, some few pounds have come to the oom- mon treasury for the relief of the poor of the district for which the aged and decrepit are inexpressibly grateful, and here I will venture to plead with you who are pretty well to do, snug in your cosy homes with full larders, yes I venture to plead with you on behalf of these pensioners of God, deal out to them an odd bunch from your fruitful fat vine, for as Burns said of the wheat ears to the poor field mouse, A daimon icker in a thraves a sma' request, you'll get a blessing with the lave and never miss't." The sands of life with most of these aged ones are nearly run out, come along then and smooth the last mile of their thorny journey. Soon they will be above the blue and beyond the help of Earth's bullion, forward then, now, to their rescue with the alacrity of the Idumeam Patriarch. Some of the old colliers sought help to this fund I at a csrtain place, they were buoyed up with large hopes, of a pretty sum to follow in a short time, the two are greatly disappointed but bare not de- spaired however a very precious vein of symp tth<- was discovered in London some time in January last, 35 journeymen tailors of almost every nation- ality under heaven, being informed by Mr S D George of our distress, cheerfully contributed to our fund. Such sympathy as this infused superhuman vigour in sufferers to bear their crushing loada, and it is a deed fit to be set in living sapphires and read on till resurrection morning.

AN EXPLANATION. To the Eduur of the RBYL ADVBBTIEEB. DEAR Sin.-Wiil you kindly allow to make a brief explanation in your columns, as to import- ant alterations which have been made in some public euaragements, in which, I hope, many ia Rhyl take an interest. 1. Lt me say that in order to avoid clashing with the literary meeting of our Calvmistic Mjth- odists friends, aud also to keep clear of other iar". gathermgs, we have had, at ve y geat inconveu- ience, to postpone the Annual Assmbly of the C:>ngregationol X nion of Ncrth Wales. It will not be held uotil April 21st and 2'2Dd, when, I am glad t" say, Mr Samuel Morley, M.P., will attend and take part. The full programme will shortly i be announced in the advertising columns of the Rhyl Advertiser. 2. As these me-tings are thu- postponed, there does not appear to be any longer good reason for regarding the Pleasant Evenings of Mondav as the last of the f-eason. These popular entertain- Iments will therefore be continued on Monday week, and also on Eister Monday. I shall be glad if volunteer friendo, on whose kindly help we so much rely, wiil please note this. I am most anxious that the forthcoming Assembly should not be used for mere sectarian p".rpos«s. The meetings will, L, far a'i I can arrange, be conducted with a single de-ire to inter- est the towns-people generally and I trust when they are over, it will be found that they have left the pleasantet memories behind.—Yours truly, D. BTWOBD HOOKE. Rhyl, 12iA March, 1885.
OPENING SUITER.—The new and commod- ious club-room which has recently beei) built by Mr Ryar in connection with the King's Head Inn, Flint, was opened by a public supper on Thursday evening. The Oddfellows have already chosen this excellent room as their place of meeting, and it would be well if members of all Frisndly Societies could secure such a spacious :and well-venti- Ilated room for the transaction of their business. i
FOOTBALL NOI:ES. Rbyl had to kpep thrir fixturepith Bangor last Saturday with nine men, fuur only of whom were first team men, and three of toelu had Lu play ii positions to which they wese not aioc.ist 1; is simply a dis>rraoe to a club like Royl that it cannot get a decent team to play from nome. I; the members who played from home oa y were allowei to play in the home matches, I am oi opinion the club would before very long be materially improved. On Saturday last they hai to obtain the assistance of a substitute to complete their team, after bar tag once before disappoiutei Bangor at the eleventh hour, when the expenses uf advertising, & had been iuourred. Tne commit- I tee will have to rouse themselves, and tackle ttiu question in earnest, or the club will find it ditfi uii to obtain fixtures with other clubs. T,ie result ol the srame on Saturday was that Rhyl were defeated by 4 to I but the game Wlit; far from being as one sided as the result would led one to infer. Tue game was very well cjntestei, ana Rhyl did almost as much of the pressing as their opponents, but were unlucky in frilt of goa. their opponents having all the lUlJk. Ai least 2 oi the Bangor goals ought to have been stoppeJ wuh ease and had Wright been in cLarge of the visitors goal, the chauoes were that the fiome tecim would nut have scored at ail. Three of the Rhyl team were partly disabled in the first half, but pluckily resumed play. Lewis, a right wing player, had to play half back, and Twiston Morgau and J. O. Vaughan had to play full back, and edoOh did very well; but this disposition sensioly weakened the forward play of the team. Lewis Morg n played a dashing game, and Boddmgt jn also did some good work-obttining the goal for Rhyl in plucky manner. Williams in goal aid not shew his usual form. There was a very good attendance of spectators. W. Lewis, Rjberts and J. S. Jones played excellently fur the home team. The Rhyl team :Goal, E. Williams backs, Twiston Morgan (captain), and J. O. Vaughan half backs, R. B. Clark, W. O. Jones and Lewis forwards, Lewis Morgan, Boddington, W. I. Rowland, J. Jones and C. Pattison (substitutes;. Mr Roberts, hon. sec. of the Bangor club made an impartial referee. At a meeting of the Northern Welsh Association held at Cirnarvon last Wednes- day, it was arranged that the undecided tie between the Bangor Athletics and Beaumaris should be played off on the 21st inst,, at Vaynol Park, it the grouud could be obtained, but if not, then at Rhyl; and the final, between the winner of the tie, and Rbyl, to be Vlayed ou the 28th inst. either at Vay- not Park or Rhyl. IN Touoa.
RHUDDLAN. CBICXET CLUB.—On Friday last the aunual meet- ing of the old club, was held at the Marsh Inn, the captain, Mr Lewis Morgan, in the chair. Tne trea- surer reported receipts, L25 expenditure, £28. Considering that the club had been put to an expense of jE8 in rebuilding the pavilion, which had been destroyed by the gale, this must be looked upon as highly satisfactory. Tne officers for the ensuing season as follows — Captain Mr Lewis Morgan. Hon. treasurer, Mr ti. W. Thompson. HuB. sec., Mr J. G. Hughes. Committee, Messrs Lewis Morgan, Rjger Miller, Mr. Llew. Lloyd, Ty'n Rhyl A. L. Rowland, W. C. Bell, J.'H. Moss, Hoger Hughes. The hon. sec. reported that the fixtures have been a ready arranged, the "lub having vacant Saturdays from May 16 to Septem- ber 15, but are open for the two bank hoiiaays May Z ) and August 3rd. Any gentlemen desirous of joining the club will be welcomed.

But the di-tinction goes furthe; Mr Robinson is mentioned in the list to tbe etfect u the effect that he would be excused being eiaudine. in part 1. uf the previous examination of the Uni- versity of Cdmbridge in the event of his becoming a sii Ieut of that Univers ty. We mty meatus that he has only just tunied 16 ye*rs of age, aud that 16 and 18 are the two limits of age for this ex- animation. Also out of all England and Wales only 18 seniors passed iu the 1st class hononrs, and only 59 in the secoud. We congratulate the learued doctor, the headmaster of the School, on Mr Robin- son's success, and,.wish him most sincerely God- speed.
