DENBIGH. DEATH OF MR MARTIN SMITH. It j, with regret we record the death, at his residence, Park-Street, Denbigh, at half-past two a.m., on Monjay last, of one of the best-known public inen in the Vale of Cl wyd, namely, Mr Martin Smith. He had been con- fined to his bed for some weeks, and the deep feeling of affection entertained for him bv all classes of the com- munity was abundantly manifested by tho numerous enquiries constantly made at his residence as to his health. His early death was a somewhat ualooked for event, particularly as he had led a most active life was apparently of a robust constitution, and had never had any prsvious iliness. When the first symptoms of the lisease from which he died manifested themselves, he vvas ordered to take rest and leave Denbigh for change. According he v.en1' to Llandrindod Wells, but love for lis WorK prompted him to return much sooner than was I leiirable for the re-establishment of his health. After ( his he visibly faded away, and his many friends watched vith earnest solicitude and feelings of pain the drooping I tf one to whom they were deeply attached, and whose ] i'o.

Although not <ir.'Ai'ising as a solicitor, yet his knowledge of the law '.vms most exfen*iv«, e,n.i msmv poor persons, and indeed others, ea'ge.rly' sought his advice on important legal matters, which he freely gave. We have beard m'ny high tes imonies to his thorough knowledge of Common Law from gentlemen who are themselves well versed therein. We believe no other man in the Yale of the Clwyd fiiieo such a multiplicity of offices as Mr Smith, and it impossible to enumerate the va'iou< ways in which his services were sough; after, there being no public movement of importance in the town in which he was not asked to uke a part, and his ad\ice and judgment of gfeat. service. Ttie following are some of th more important cilices he; held:—For very many years he wasclcikto the governors of Howell's School, lete^fst.s of winch iusuiusion he ever sought to pro- mote. In his capacity as clerk to the borough magis- trates he had ample opportunityfcr the manifestation of that "legal knowledge he possessed, and it speaks volumes for his care and skill that an -ppeal from the decision of the Borough Bench was a thing, as far as we can team, qmte unknown, for some years he acted as borough treasurer; and us secretary to the LL g0 and important lodge -of odd- f.-iiows he, by hii tact and skill, greatly promoted its prospcri'y. la hen the Conservative party have lo t a valuable servant, He was entrusted with the botoiigh registration and none better thau his political opponents know how faithfully he did his work. and we feel suie ihey aie ready to acknowledge that with liis shrewdness and tact in proving his claims and making good his objections he combined that gentlemanly and courteous c .ndnet that made him a honourable and worthy opponent. At the last general election he was retained 01 byfcaW of the Hon. G. T. Knyon, and we can eshmony to the aiduous manner in which he engnged in the contest. He also seived the party with great ability as secretary to the Jenbigh District Con<titutional Association, the members of which greatly deplore his 10. As a Churchman he took an active interest in all parish matters. For over twenty years he acted as warden of St. David's Church, and was ever at his post when needed. In the rector had a valuable fellow- labourer for he zealously discharged the duties of vestry clerk, and was secretary to the Parochial Council, and was also the permanent secretary of the Church Association for the Deaneries of St. Asaph, Denbigh, and Dyffryn Clwyd. In these various positions he will be much missed. He was clerk to the Income Tax Commissioners; assistant high bailiff for the Denbigh Court district, and only a few months ago he was appointed to the office of sub-distributor of stamps for the district, which was resigued by Mr Jones, Bank- place. Few will feei his loss like Dr Evan Pierce, to whom he acttd as coroner's clerk. Between himself and the coroner there was the close intimacy of a long stand- ing friendship. When the proposal to present a testi- monial to Vr Pierce was originated, Mr Smith acted as secretary, and undsr Ins care the project grew to its present proportion?. In duties of this kind he was aiwayc ready to take part; one of his last efforts in this direction being to take the hon. secretaryship of the marriage testimonial fund of the Rev H. B. Jones, Denbigh, which duties, however, through his illness, were discharged by his son, Mr G. T. Smith. Since the formation of the Den bgh company of "Volunteers he was an active member, and after tilling the office of Quartensastor-Strgeant, he was about two years ago promoted to tiie positiou of Quartermaster of the Denbighshire battalion, and efficiently discharged the duties. About, foui or five years ago, when the Denbigh Fire Brigade obtained the consent of the Council to elect their own captain, instead of accepting 'he services of the Mayor for the time being, who was supposed to act as Captain, the members unanimously • ■feed Mr Smith, who had served the brigade as first Lieutenant for some years previously. Ever since the formation of the Vale of Clwyd Horiicultural Society, or at any rate soon afterwards, he discharged the duties of secretary, and it is due to his skill in the management thereof that the society attained so influential a position, and that the annual shows are the most popular and fashionable gatherings ;n the Yale of Clwyd. Whilst, however, this year's was held, the one who had done so much to >' 'hli-h it lay awaiting interment. When to these numerous and varied duties are added his own exten ive practice as an accountant, auditor, and general agent, as well as the constant work furnished him m liquidation cases, in which he was often appointed trustee, it is no rriarvel that his health broke down. The question really asked in the town and asked with all snicern-y is, vV ho can take his pi ice ? whilst it is and always has been a matter of surprise how ho got through MI murh work in so thorough a manner. No doubt the various public offices will ere long have to he filled, and we would express the hope that where it is possible that the duties can be dischaiged by the son connected with him in business that out of respect to deceased's memory and for the benefit of his family no change will bo made. On behalf of the district press we desire to record our testimony of the courteous conduct ot the deceastd upon all occasions and of his readiness at all times to give assistance and furnish information connected with his various deparlments; acts of kindness that can oniy be duly appreciated by those whose lot it is to experience the difficulties of obtaining reliable information on important occasions. TRIBUTE OF RESPECT FROM THE CORPORATION. At the commencement of the Council meeting on Monday, The Mayor said Gentlemen, you will no doubt expect me to refer to the very melancholy occurrence that has taken place in this town this morning. I assute you that I fed most deeply the loss of Mr Martin Smith, the borough treasurer, who has been connected with the Corporation for a great number of years, and I am sure one and all of you must have heard of his death with the greatest sorrow. Mr Smith was intimately connected with everything of importance ia the town, and a more useful man never lived amongst us. He was always ready to give his assistance on all occasions, and to the poorer classes of his townsmen he was a valuable friend, ever ready with advice that was of the greatest importance to them. Indeed, I may regard his death not only as a loss to the town, but to the county at large, and I am not casting a reflection upon anyone when I say the county could as ill afford to lose him as most public men it possesses. Therefore I ihink it would be wro g of me if I did not, cn your behalf, acknowledge his valuable services, and propose that we should tender our condolence with his bereaved widow and family in this their sad trial. It must, indeed, be a great source of comfort to them that he left sufficient proof to lead them to believe that he knew he had a happier and better home-awaitiLg him. We all knew that If medIcal kill could have availed the great skill and constant attention given to his case by Dr Pierce would have saved him. I understand that the family have yielded to the wishes of his many friends and consented that the funeral shall be a public one. Ir. will also be a military funeral, and I shall be glad if you will all join me, as I am sure you will desire to do, in attending the funeral as a tribute of our respect for his memory. I have no doubt that as Mr Smith was connected with so many public institu- tions it will be a very large funeral. I beg to move that a letter of condolence be sent to Mrs Smith and the family. Alderman Parry-Jones (who was much affected) said he hardly knew how to second the resolution that the Mayor had proposed, for he felt most deeply the loss of his old and valued friend, Martin Smith. He had been intimately connected with him in various ways since the year 1848. As magistrates' clerk, borough treasurer, clerk to the governors of Howell's School, and as secre- tary or treasurer of nearly every public movement in the town he had shown himself a most efficient, useful man, und be really did not know where they should find his successor. Dr Pierce seconded the motion, but said be felt so much overcome at the loss he (in common with the Council and town) had sustained that he could not express his feelings. Tae motion was carried and, the Town Clerk instructed to write a letter to Mrs Smith and family. THE FUNERAL.—YESTERDAY. It was meet that one whose life had been of so public a character, and who had done so much for the public institutions of the town should have a public funeral. Yielding to the wishes of all sections of townspeople the family consented. The volunteers were anxious to make a military funeral, and this was carried out, whilst the fire brigade, as deceased was captain, claimed the sad privilege of bearing tho body to its last resting place. Arrangements were made for placing the body upon the engine and conveying it in that form to the cemetery. The Mayor issued notices to the townspeople, stating the hour of funeral (namely, two p.m. yesterday, Friday), and he requested the tradesmen and inhabitants to close their places of business during the hour of funeral. Particulars of the funeral will be given in next week's Guardian, VALE OF CLWYD HORTICULTURAL SHOW. The 2iith annual show of the Vale of Clwyd Horti- cultural Society took place on Thursday, in the grounds of the fine old castle of Denbigh. The extensive grounds were in good order, and the flower beds of Mr Jones, the Dastle keeper, presented a very pretty appearance, and idded much to the appearance of the show. Through the lamented death of the society's energetic secretary, he work of carrying out the whole of the arrangements I levolved upon Mr (t. T. Smith and Mr Isaac James, the atter of whom has acted as cashier, and in other depart- nents for a great number of years. The various ex- hibits were laid out most tastefully by Mr Scott, Ird'ner, on;> of the.ommjttee, :!lId did !I:m gre..tcT!>dl" He was assisted bv Mr R bert-s, Bridge-str- et, an t oth -i>. The hrjie gr^en on the lert hand side ws-s reserved f-.i d oic-iiig. a platform having bean erect, d in the centre for f for the Denbigh Viilun eer bund, winch, under tlie able bvidcrship of Bandmaster Evans, plaved a good selec- tion cf music. Mr E. F. Jones, Britannia Buil litres, D.-nbigh, co. iiderablv enlarged the show by forward1 ug for inspec- ion a gre it coilecti in of articles suitable for the g'irdi-n, lawn, and field. Mr Thomas Howard, of Hal'-squ in, also exhibited simitar articles. Messrs F. and A. Dick- son, of Cnester, sent (not for competition) a "pltlHI d collection of choice flowers and plants, which added to the beau-y of the shvw and were much admired. Mr Peter Williams, gardener and seedsman, of Denbigh, also sent a very large collection of flosvers and plants, together with choice flower seeds. The gardeners collection of fruit was large and of very fine quality. The grapes were splendid, particularly the hlacl{ ones sent by the Mayor of Ruthin (It. G. Ellis, E'q.). Some fine white grapes were shown by Mr Pritchard, gardener at Galltfaenan, but unfortunately, just, as they were being removed from the wagon they fell to the ground, and were broken. The only dish of figs exhibited came from Llanrhaiadr Hall. There were very few cherries. Melons were in great abundance and very fine as were desert and culinary apples. Pirars however, seemed scarce. Currants, both red and white, were very plentiful. The vegetable show was extremely good. The baskets showing several varieties were uumerous and particulaily worthy of commendation. Cucumbers seemed scarce, but a few fine ones were shown. The potatoes were a capital show both as regards quality, variety of soit and quantity. Some huge vegetable marrows were displayed. Unions were very fine, kidney beans small lots but good. Only a few plates of tomatoes were exhibited. Beet root atiu horse radish were miserably poor. The trays of salad looked well and the varieties were excellent. The field produce, though much smaller than usual, was very fine, especially the mangolds and swedes: the ox cabbages, too, were of immense proportions. The variety of the produce in ths class was very limited. The cottagers made a capital show of vegetables, the qu.dity being also very good indeed, it is surprising how some of it. is grown in cottagers' gardens. Their exhibits of fruit, however, were very poor and tl.e qualiiy not up to the m-uk. A few plates of good Denbigh plums and some apples were the most note- worthy textures. Sixty prizes were offered for coai- petition amongst the cottagers, and ought to havo pro- duced a larger .show in the fruit and flower classes. The show of flowers and plants in the gardeners' tent was a beautiful sight. The designs in cut flowers surpassed anything we have previously seen in the Vale of Clwyd. An excellent design was sent in by the gardener of Gwaenynog Hall, It was in the Ïorm of a flower garden, with the chief bed arranged to represent a harp,; the outer portions bsing composed of the most delicate and beautiful cut flowers, whilst the strings were fitted on with great neatness. On one side wzi, a most perfect representation of a violin and bow with the strngs and bridge complete, and on the other end a side drum and two drum sticks. It was greatly admired, as was also a representation of a harp. This was com- posed of cut flowers and leaves. It was the work of William Roberts, gardener to Mr T. Gold Edwards. Other choice designs were sent in from Segrwyd, Gweanvnog, &c. There was a very poor show of cut roses; much less than last year. Holyhocks were in great profusion and looked well; cut dahlias made a good show, as did verbinas, the varieties being numerous. Pansies were miserably poor. A.sters were in abundance, and were the largest collection of any flower present. Stocks were fine and numerous. The variety and quality of the carnations was excellent. A splendid collection of phloxes were shown. Marigolds were pretty and plentiful, there being only one collection, however, of African, and two or three of French marigolds. Green- house, stove, and ornamental plants of all kinds showed up well, from such gardens as Galltfaenan, Pontruffydd, Ystrad. Llanrhaiadr, Segrwyd, Gweanyuog, and Plas Clough. The ferns were very beautiful though there was not a large show. Gold and bronze, also zonale geraniums ma :e a very good show. A magnificent collection of coxcombs in pots were sent in from Ystrad Hall, and were much admired. Fushc as made a very poor show, the blossoms being meagre and the plants exhibited few in number. Taken as a whole the .show though somewhat smaller was on an average with former years. The judges were Messrs Cochrane and Ingram from Messrs Dickson's nursery, Chester; Mr Cowan, of Llan- bedr, and Mr Binder, from Sir Pyers Mostyn's, of Taiacre. They took much care in their work, and we believe the r awards gave general satisfaction. The c mimrtee secured as lady patroness Mrs W. Cornwallis West, of Ruthin Castle, and as president, R. W\ nne Edwards, E-q J.P Llanrhaiadr Hall, and the interest they took in the show tended to promote its success. The weather during the early morning was of a very threatening chaiacter, and the friends of the show greatly feared a thoroughly wet day. It cleared up however about mid-day, although occasionally a few showers fell, which, of course, did not add to the appear- ance of the products placed on the greensward. Pnor to the opening ot the show at two o'cio,:k the Voiun-eer Bmd paraded the town, which was a signal for visitois to assemble. The committee offered in prizes nearly E30, about XG being givn to cottagers, £10 for fruits and vegetables amongst gardeuers, about. XG offered for eompeution in plants, some X4 10s in flowers, and about X3 in mis- cellaneous prizes. The prize for the best bouquet wax flowers, to be the make of the exhibitor, failed to produce a competitor. Tfe committee made a rule that anvoi e exhibiting produce not their own should be di'-quJifijd: a v'ry good rule, but what means are adt ptedlfor carrying it out? Trie attendance of gentry was equal to the average but the visitors from Rhyl who generally flock to the show were 30nspicious by their absence, and the attend- ance of the general public was much les-3 than usual consequently there will be a falling ff in the receipts. Complaints were made by several competitors 'hat exhibits shown by cottagers were not grown by them and it was suggested that theirgardens should be visited priot to the show by the committee. The company included Major ana Mrs Cornwallis West, and Miss Fitzpatrick and parry, Ruthin Castle; Captain R. Wynne Price and Mrs Prtce Mrs and Miss Vaughan Williams, St. Asaph Mr and Mrs Watts and party, Llewesog; Hev. Mr Marsden. Dr Miles, Captain and Mrs Lloyd Williams, Mr J. Parry-Jones.
