Why did you not appear after the adjournment ? They came to me several times. You appear here to-day; why ?—Because I was eerved with a summons to attend. Had you anything besides the .apology?—He paid me for my loss of work, that is all. How much ?-.£3 10s. Are you able to see with your eye now ?—No. Can you distinguish between daylight and dark- ness ?—I cannot see at all with it. Complainant then said I work at Messrs Jones and Rocke's, as a labourer. I was living at 25, Salop-road, on Sunday, 5th November. Between half-past ten and a quarter to eleven, we were having our suppers, when the door was kicked open. I went out and saw Woosnam and Mr Harriss both running down the street. I caught Woosnam, and held him by the right hand and wrist, and said as soon as I saw who it was, You will have a sum- mons for this." He came back a second time and was pushed out of the house, and I walked down towards the bottom door of Jones and Rooke's. I was going in there, when Woosnam hit me with a bottle, which he threw at me. The Magistrates' Clerk Where did it strike you ? —Across the forehead. Have you since been attended by a medical man ? —Yes, by Mr Evans at the Infirmary. How long did he attend you?—He has attended me all along, and I go to him now when I want any ointment. You say you were hit on the temple. Could you see before with your right eye ?—I could see 40 yards before me. Now you cannot se at all ?—Not at all. And you swear that Mr Woosnam hit you with this bottle ?—Yes. What took place after that ?—I don't remember anything else. I was taken into the house and taken to bed by Sergeant Lindsay. In what state was Mr Woosnam ?—He was in drink. That is all you know about it ?—Yes. Will you swear you did not hit him first ?—I never touched him. Defendant: I am prepared to prove that what he has aid is an entire fabrication of falsehoods. I am not prepared to go into the case at present. I paid Mr Sherratt to appear for me last Monday to explain the arrangement. However, he failed to appear. The case was compromised by the urgent request of several of my friends. I had no motive to suppress the case. I was assaulted. The Magistrates' Clerk: You hear what the man has said on oath ? Defendant: I am not prepared to go into the case. I am prepared to summon my witnesses. If you will kindly adjourn it to this day week, I am quite prepared to go into the case. Mr T. C. Jones: I don't know whether the appli- cation is not too late. Complainant's case is laid before the defendant, and he knows all the evidence he has to give. I don't think it is a fair applica- tion. The adjournment ought to have been asked for before he gave his evidence. Defendant: I have no witnesses. The Magistrates' Clerk: You ought to have brought them. Defendant: I must plead ignorance. I thought the matter was settled, and that there was an end of it. However, I am quite prepared to go into the case next Monday. I really cannot go into the case now. I have no evidence to support it. The Magistrates' Clerk: You have taken out a. summons against Roberts. Defendant: I will renew that as the case is to go on. Mr T. C. Jones This case is bound to go on. The Magistrates' Clerk: You have had ample opportunity. You have had since Wednesday to collect your evidence. Defendant: It was not my doing to compromise the thing at all; it was my frieuds. I really did not want to compromise it. I am quite prepared to prove that he was the aggressor and that I am blameless. If you will grant me an adjournment till next Monday, I will prove it. Mr T. C. Jones: As Mr Harriss' name was mentioned in this case, is he a witness of yours ? Defendant: Yes. Mr T. C. Jones Do you know the reason why he is not here to-day ? Defendant: I do not. Mr T. C. Jones Does anybody know ? The Magistrates' Clerk 1 have a telegram from Mr Harriss stftting that his mother died at one o'clock yesterday. Defendant: Yes, she did die. The Magistrates' Cleik: Very likely he would have to attend his mother's funeral. The magistrates then decided to adjourn the case for a fortnight, and the parties were bound over in their own recognizances to appear- at the adjourned hearing next Monday week. ASSAULT AT THE NEW BARRACKS. James Conlan, plasterer, was summoned for an assault upon Frederick, manager to the contractor a.t the new barracks. Complainant said the assault arose out of a breach of the regulations adopted at the works. Strict injunctions had been issued that no fire was to be lit in any part of the building excepting the ms- room, in which the workmen were allowed to take their meals. Defendant, with three or four others, persisted in having a fire in a place where it was not allowed, and he found them there at dinner before the fire. He told them they were com- mitting a breach of the regulations, and they turned round upon him with a great deal of abuse. At last he took a can of water and dashed it on to the fire. It was just possible that some of it might have fallen on defendant's food, but he immedi- ately got up and struck him a blow in the face, which was followed by another on the chest, and a third on the temple. Defendant said he was aggravated by the action of the complainant, who in dashing out the fire had spoilt a beef-steak which had been brought him for dinner. Mr T. C. Jones asked defendant whether he was not aware that there was a dining-room provided for the men. Defendant was quite aware of that, but said it was not fit for any respectable man to take his meals in; for the contractor's men were continually cursing and blaspheming and throwing bread at one another. Complainant said this was the room used by their men, and he had yet to learn that a plasterer was any better than a bricklayer. Defendant said the joiners had got a room to themselves, so had the painters, and even two labourers. He had a nice beef steak, but he had to throw it away, and work all day without a bit of meat. Complainant said it was necessary to have a fire in the carpenter's shop to heat the glue, and also in the plumber's shop. With regard to anyone else no one was allowed to have afire except in the mess room. Defendant: I am quite sure the whitewashers don't want a fire to boil the whitewash (laughter). A witness, who said he was a plasterer for Mr Oliver, stated that on Monday week they were sitting down to get their dinner, when complainant took a can full of dirty water, and threw it over the fire, and then a handful of dirt. Defendant then jumped up and hit him. The ;tneis-room was only fifteen feet square for above a hundred men to sit in. Another workman gave evidence in corroboration of the assault, but complained of the manner in which the fire was extinguished, and by which the dinners of the men were completely spoilt. Defendant was fined 5s and costs. ROBBING A BUTCHER'S STALL. John Mack, a tramp, was brought up on remand charged with having stolen a piece of beef, value Is 6d, from the stall of Thomas Woodward, butcher, Market Hall; and on the application of the Deputy Chief Constable, the prisoner was further remanded to enable the police to inquire into his antecedents. ASSAULTING A FATHER. Louis Leadbeater, a plumber by trade but who it was stated has not done a day's work for many months, was brought up on a warrant for an assault committed upon his father, Mr Thomas Leadbeater, watchmaker and jeweller, Temple-row, so far back as twelve months ago last March. The defendant it seems went to his father's house, and taking the kettle off the fire threatened to throw it at him, and behaved in a very violent manner. In reply to the court, Mr Leadbeater said his son was subject to fits, which were brought on by nothing else but smoking and chewing tobacco. The magistrates informed the defendant that they would give him one more chance to reform his character, and advised him to keep away from home, and not molest his father any more. He was then set at liberty. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. Patrick Doyle, was charged by Inspector Wilde with creating a disturbance in Mount-street, early on Saturday morning last, was fined 10s 6d and 3. 6d costs; or fourteen days.
The Government have again shown their anxiety to ameliorate the condition of the underpaid National School Teacher by adopting a special Irish made of dealing with those teachers who have beon unable to qualify for contingent results' fees," through the unions in which their schools are situate not having become contributory under the late Act. The Lord Lieutenant has now, with the sanction of the Treasury, included all teachers in the benefits of a new arrangement who can show a local contribution from any source equalling 3s. 4-d. per annum of the average attendance, or equaliit g half the airount of the fees which might have been granted bad the school been within a contributory union.
THE CLOSING OF THE ART "TREASURES EXHIBITION. PRESENTATION OP AN ADDRESS TO MAJOR WEST. Saturday last brought us to the last day on which this exhibition was opened to the general public, and the executive committee to'ok care to provide such attractions as would make the occasion one of general interest and amusement to all those who paid a farewell visit to this institution, which is now numbered amongst the things of the past so far as its reality is concerned; but, be it hoped, that it will ever linger in the memories of those who have had the privilege of inspecting its valuable and miscellaneous contents. At two o'clock, under the conductorship of Mr Edwin Harriss, the exhibition band. led by Mr Martin, and composed of a number of talented musicians, struck up the first strains of Winterbottom's celebrated march, "•Hail to our Prince," which was admirably rendered, as was also the whole of the programme which con- sisted of some attractive dance music. Millar's noted march, Sadowa," and a couple of organ solos, which it is hardly necessary to say were executed with that taste and precision which have marked the performances of Mr Harriss, to whom a fitting com- pliment was paid by Major Cornwallis West, on Monday, in the course of a lengthy speech. At four o'clock the National Anthem was given, and thus ended the last afternoon. At seven o'clock a very large audience were seated in the art gallery to hear a choice programme performed, and their numbers were greatly augmented in the course of another half hour or so, when nearly 2,000 occupied various positions in the building—some inspecting the con- tents and the numerous cases containing innumer- able articles of vertu, others admiring the magnificent pictures which adorned the walls, and others spend- ing their time in a minute inspection of the con- tents of the Industrial annexe, which were laid out to the greatest advantage by the standholders who remained to the close of the season; and, judging from the number of the purchases that were made they will not have reason to regret having done so. Auber's Crown diamonds" overture commenced the musical portion of the evening's I entertainment, and Miss Madeline Roe next sang Haydn's With verdure clad," in a style which proved her to be an artiste in every sense of the word. Bishop's Echo song," and Balfe's If Ah what full delight were the other pieces allotted to her, and her rendering of each one was greatly admired, and, we may add, deservedly applauded the audience being evidently delighted with the pleasing and fascinating stylo of this now eminent soprano, to whom we predict a bright future in tie musical arena. Verdi's II Trovatore," Rossini's Semiramide," and the new and popular fantasia of Riviere, t. Rage of London," were given by the band with much spirit, and the orchestral perform- ances proved highly successful, each member of the band acquitting himself to the satisfaction of even the crotchety musical critic. An organ solo by Mr Harriss, which needs no comment here, was then given, after which a farewell symphony was executed with care, precision, and due solemnity. The lights in the hall were lowered, whilst those in the orchestra were totally extinguished, and a candle was lighted and attached to each music stand. The symphony was commenced with the full band, and after a few bars had been played one musician ceased performing, put out his candle and retired, and this was repeated until only the con- ductor remained. The effect of this strange but appropriate farewell performance was grand and touching. Beneath the orchestra the band played the National Anthem, and Mr J. F. Edisbury re- peated the same on the grand organ, after which the company retired, and thus ended the Art Treasures Exhibition of North Wales, and the border counties of Cheshire and Lancashire, held at Wrexham. The closing ceremony in connection with the Wrexham Art Treasures Exhibition was performed on Monday evening, when an elegantly illu- minated address in the form of an album, was presented to Major Cornwallis West by Mr Barnes, high sherriff of Denbighshire. The attendance was not so numerous as we should have expected, a circumstance which was probably due in no small degree to the unfavourable state of the weather; but members of some of the principal families in the town and neighbourhood were present. The proceedings took the form of a musical conver- sazione, and it is hardly too much to say that hardly any gathering of this nature was ever convened in such a splendid gallery of paintings and treasures of art as that which is now closed. Major West spoke at considerable length in reply to the address, and gave a history of the exhibition. It is somewhat remarkable that both the Art Treasures Exhibition and the Wrexham National Eisteddvod have signally failed to achieve the objects which the promoters had in view. The former was originally started with the idea of raising sufficient funds to found a school of art or art scholarships, while the latter aimed at establishing scholarships for Wrex- ham boys at Aberystwith University College. It is very much to be regretted that these very laudable intentions have not been realised for the promoters certainly left no stone unturned in order to compass the objects they had in view, but the working expenses were so hea?y, and the "stars" have run away with so mueh money, that instead of the hoped-for surplus it is found no sv that the accounts of the exhibition are being balanced up that after all the guarantors have been exhawsted there will remain a deficit of something like .£1,500. Probably the total amount of the would have been more than amply sufficient to establish a school of art in Wrexham; and thus the exhibition has been a round-about, and in the end an unsuccessful, attempt to do that which might have been attained by simpler and more effectual means. When the Duke of Westminster hoped that the exhibition would be visited by a thousand persons per diem in order that the enter- prize might be made to pay, doubtless not a few who heard the remark were inclined to ask where the people were to come from; and the statistics which have been published week by week show that on an average not more than about half that number have visited the exhibition at any one time. Wrexham is not like Liverpool, Manchester, or Birmingham, or any of the large centres of popu- lation and the exhibition having to draw its sup- port from the out side world, and not being easily accessible by rail, those crowds of sightseers which it was fondly hoped would pour in on all sides in continuous streams have been conspicuous by their absence. Everyone will regret this financial col- lapse for the enterprise was certainly one which was deserving of a better fate. No fine art col- lection was more rich and varied and more thoroughly representative in its character. Examples of almost all the British and Foreign schools of painting, whether ancient or modern, were to be seen upon its walls; while the cases contained an inexhaustible variety of the rearest and most beautiful and costly specimens of art workmanship. The visitor might spend many days and weeks at this wonderful exhibition without exhausting his interest in the endless variety of its valuable contents. Even the most carping of critics, while finding fault with the building and its decorations, had nothing but praise for the unique and magnificent collection which had been brought together. It would have been only a fitting reward to the exertions of Major W esin influential quarters, by which South Kensington and Hampton Court, and many a private cabinet were placed under contribution, if some permanent memorial of the Art Treasures Exhibition could have been given to the town with which his name might have been associated. Nor must we forbear to express our admiration of those noblemen and gentlemen who generously opened their private galleries for the selection of whatever paintings or art treasures might be deemed suitable for this Exhibition. Prominent in a long list of private contributors appear the names of the Duke of Westminster, Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart., Mr Cholmondeley, the Hon. George T. Kenyon, and the Liverpool School of Art, which latter gave valuable assistance in the loan of some splendid pictures, which adorned the walls of the gallery. Now that the Exhibition is closed, and ere its valuable contents are dispersed to the four winds, we may venture to ask what are the results ? The direct results must unfortunately be set down as nil; but indirectly it will in all probability have had a considerable influence for good. It will have elevated and purified the taste of a great many people whose art education had previously been of that coarse and vulgar kind which too often prevails in small and scattered communities far removed from the great centres of civilised life while it is to be hoped that in the case of some few endowed with the art faculty the benefits derived from a study of the paintings, sculpture, carving, &c., may bear fruit in after years, and that some future Wilson or Gibson may arise, who will be able to look back and say that his genius received its first stimulus from a visit to the Wrexham Art Treasures Exhibition of 1876.

The High Sherriff presided, with Major West on his right hand, and was supported by the mayor, ex-mayor, several members of the committee, and the principal officials connected with the exhibitioh. Mrs West also occupied a seat on she platform. The Chairman said that most excellent and beautiful exhibition, like many other things—all things in this world, he might say—must come to an end, and the committee of management had most unanimously and appropriately decided that it should not bo closed and those articles of value and beauty be dispersed abroad and sent again to the places from whence they came without the public having an opportunity of expressing their feelings towards those who had been the means of gathering together those exhibits, and for that purpose they had prepared an address to the gentleman who had been most prominent in all the efforts in connection with the exhibition, and had decided that it should be presented to him that night. It was therefore his pleasing duty, in accordance with the arrange- ments, to read and present on behalf of the public and those who had had the management of this meeting, an address to the Lord-Lieutenant of the county of Denbighshire, Major W. Cornwallis West. The address, illuminated on vellum, occupies two leaves, bcund in a case of rich maroon coloured leather, with handsome cold tooling, and the following inscrip- tion on the covers:—"Address, presented to Major W. Cornwallis West, Lord-Lieutenant of Denbighshire, from the inhabitants of Wrexham and neighbourhood." Tha first leaf contains the address as far as the words, the invitation of the," which is surrounded by a most elaborate border, at the top and in the centre of which are introduced the armorial bearings of Major West. Pendant from those is the monogram T.O.; attached to this is a very lich mediceval-shaped scroll ribband, formed so as to contain the remaining portion of the' heading, "Major W. Cornwallis West, Lord-Lieutenant of Denbighshire." In the centre, at the bottom of the border, are the aims of the borough of Wrexham. The remaining leaf has a very a elaborate and chaste border, with the words, "Art Treasures Exhibition," and its Jocation at Wrexham, thrown up very prominently, forming a heading to this page for the continuation of the address. The bodv of the address is written in Old English and German text hand in separate paragraphs, with main initial letters extending to the bottom of each paragraph The colouring throughout is heightened with raised, sunk, burnished, and matt gilding. The address was as follows:— Major JY. Cornwallis West, Lord-Lieutenant of Denbighshire. SIR,- W e desire, on behalf of the inhabicILnts of this town and neighbourhood, to convey to you our hearty thanks for the great service you have rendered to North Wales and the border counties, and particularly to this district, by the initiation of the Art Treasures Exhibition, and its location at Wrexham. When we look upon tbe numerous and in- valuable works of art which have delighted the eyes of thousands during the past four months, we find it impossible adequately tD express ("lr appreciation of the labour pi von to the preparation of the building and the selection of its contents, the skill whieh has been manifested in all the arrangements or the knowledge of art which could alone secure so successful a result. While we are very grateful to the nobility and gentry who have so kindly and. generously placed their collections at your service, we feel tlmt the main debt of gratitude is due to you, Your elevated position, and the readiness with which you undertook the responsibility together with you known taste and judgment, inspired your friends with the neeessary confidence and secured the hearty co-operation of those who have so ably assisted you. The noble collection exhibited to tho public, and now shortly to be dispensed, cannot fail to exercise a most beneficial influence upon the taste find character of the community. We pray that your life may long be spared and that you may see the full realisation of the advantages which you have so unselfishly endeavoured to secure. Signed on behalf of a committee representing the town and neighbourhood of Wrexham, JOB:" BEIRNE, Mayor. Art Treasures Exhibition, November 27th, 1875. Major W. Cornwallis West was enthusiastically welcomed on rising to reply, and said it was with mingled feelings of pleasure and pain that he rose to address those present; pleasure, because he must feel, and would be made of stone if he did not, the kindness which so many ladies and gentlemen had shown him with being present that night to do honor not only to himself but to all who had been connected officially v'ith that great enterprise; but he felt a certain degree of pain and disappointment and mortification at a statement which he would unfortunately have to reveal to them presently. He meant to be frank and open with them, and would tell them the whole history of the Exhibition. When he contrasted the feelings that were within him on that memorable 22nd of July—that bright, beautiful summer day—when a whole galaxy of the rank and fashion of the whole neighbourhood a.nd of North Wales was pre- sent when he compared the sanguine expectations he had respecting the success of the Exhibition both financially and educationally, with present realisations, he felt considerable disappointment. At its opening there were some disagreeable people who said they believed the whole thing would be a failure, and that class of people he would denominate the Didn't I tell you because there were plenty of them who could have a very good crow now and say I told you how it would be." The Exhibition had not been a failure in an educational point of view, but it had financially. The real originator of the Art Trea- sures Exhibition was the chairman of the Eis- teddvod committee, Dr Williams (applause). Two years ago that gentleman wrote to him (Major West) saying that as the National Eisteddvod of 1876 was going to be held in Wrexham, he should like it to be something out of the common, and asking that he (Mr West) would undertake the superintendence and management of the Art De- partment of the Eisteddvod. In reply he wrote to Dr Williams saying that as the Art Department of the Eisteddvod was usually of so meagre a character he hesitated in dofng so. En passant he would remark that he would recommend those who got up Eisteddvodau to drop the Art Depart- ment, for he thought it was an absurdity that there should be such contemptible pictures ex- hibited as he had been asked to look at (hear, hear). It would be far better to limit the pictures to those who aro members of schools in connection with the Science and Art Department. South Kensington (applause). He, however, in reply to Dr Williams, asked if it would be possible to got up an Art Treasures Exhibition as an adjunct to the Ereteddvod, and Dr Williams replied that if the matter was left to him (Major West) it would be easily accomplished. He then put himself in communication with the Duke of Westminster*, Sir W. W. Wynn, Bart., M.P., and a number of other gentlemen who thoroughly entered into the matter, and not only promised to become contributors, but also guarantors. He wished to dwell for a moment on a subject which whilst it was not exactly consonant with his feelings to allude to, yet, in justice to himself, he ought to do so. It came to his knowledge that there had been a report, and so far as he knew, it was confined to two individuals, that the Exhibition was not got up in a dis- interested spirit; but that it was for some miser- able party purposes, and that he (Major West) endeavoured to make political capital out of what he considered a means of educating artistically the people of the country. He had the greatest con- tempt for anyone who would entertain that idea (applause). He would appeal to all those gentle- men who had been associated with him, all of whom had worked amicably and agreeably, the majority of whom were good Tories, whether such had been the case or not (applause). He protested against those people who being unable to raise themselves to the height of a great event imputed motives to public men on every possible occasion (applause). After the guarantors came forward they had to consider about selecting a site for an exhibition. Mr Low came forward in a most generous manner and lent them a site, and if it had not been for that gentleman the exhibition could not have been held (loud applause). He was very much obliged to Mr Low for the kindness he had shown them. Mr Kennedy was fixed upon as the architect, and he had carried out the work in the best manner possible with the means at his disposal. On the opening day his friend, Mr Chaffers, and himself, who were* of rather sanguine temperaments, thought it would be best to send out invitations to 'the contributors as an acknowledgment of their kindness in sending things, and that fact gave rise to some disagreeable remarks, and perhaps, as matters had turned out, it would have been better I to have refrained from issuing those invitations I gratis; but he thought the Executive Committee should be excused for having done what they thought was a graceful act (hear, hear). The greatest financial losses they had was from the concerts. They thought that high-class music, given, by a magnificent orchestra, which was not frequent in the Principality, would attract larger numbers than it did. They were indebted to the director of the music at those concerts, Mr John Thomas, for his kindness and generosity, for he was not paid every time he performed or rendered services (applause). He gave his services as often as he was paid, and it was doing a great kindness to his fellow-countrymen as a professional gentle- man thus to receive no remuneration (renewed applause). There was another gentleman who, as an inhabitant of Wrexham, deserved not only the thanks of the speaker but also that of the public at large—he alluded to Mr Edwin Harriss, the organist (loud applause). He never met any gen- tleman who appeared so anxious to please as Mr Harriss did on every occasion, for he repeated music, and did all he could to satisfy the general public; and knowing his feelings as an artist and musiciln he (Mr West) was very sorry to find he was obliged to conduct a band in which the popular song of H Tommy Dodd" was performed but he had to do it to suit the tastes of the public, and he did it admirably (applause). The arrange- ments which had been made with the railway companies were not successful, for whilst they put money into the coffers of the company they did not add much to those of the exhibition. The great employers of labour, too, did not take the opportunities afforded them by the executive for sending their men to the exhibition, as it was anticipated they would have done, The guarantors deserved well of their countrymen, for without them nothing could have been done. The question arose as to how the deficiency was to be met, for the Executive Committee were responsible for any sum that was deficient. The sum was not much amongst a large population like that of Wrexham and the neighbourhood, and he hoped some means would be devised for clearing it off. As the chair- man of the Executive Committee, and one who had watched the arrangements from the commence- ment, he wished personally to acknowledge the services yhich had been rendered to the exhibition by Mr Chaffers, and in doing so he was, he felt, also the mouthpiece of the public (loud applause). Mr Chaffers deserved very well of the public (renewed applause). No one seemed to him to combine so much of technical knowledge, scientific skill, and good nature as Mr Chaffers, for his good nature was unbounded (hear, hear). Whenever anything disagreeable happened, and he (Major West) got out of temper, Mr Chaffers was like a. duck having water poured down its back—it had no effect upon him (applause and laughter). He made himself thoroughly useful, and was equal to every occasion, and no one appeared to work more heartily from the commencement till then than he had, and he was sorry the result had not been quite up to their expectations. He had to say a word for Mr Fisher, who was a conscientious, excellent man (applause). He was always at his post, and he was sure every Wrexham gentleman who had made his acquaintance would find him a very agreeable friend. He also wished to say a word for Mr Ivetts and Mr Probert, both of whom had had a deal to do in the general affairs (ap- plause). Major West then passed a eulogy upon Mr J. F. Edisbury, Mr David Johnson, and several other gentlemen who had been officially connected with carrying out the arrangements of the Exhibi- tion. The thanks of the community were due to all those wi.o had contributed to the magnificent collection they saw there, and he felt that they could not be thanked often enough. Major WTest then mentioned the names of a number of the contributors, including Sir W. W. Wynn, Sir R. A. Cunliffe, the Hon. Geo. T. Kenyon, Mr T. Mainwaring, and a host ef others, to whom he paid a suitable compliment. Their thanks were also due to the Liverpool Art Club for the loan of some valuables, and he hoped the people of Wales thoroughly appreciated the great kindness of the Liverpool gentlemen who had assisted in promoting a stuqy of art in the Principality (applause). The committee of the Brown Museum had sent a very fine collection of things, and to them their thanks were likewise due. To Mr George Wallace and Mr Cunliffe P. Owen, of the South Kensington Museum, who had sent one of the best collections which had ever been taken to the provinces, he also desired to express their thanks. All who had examined them would say that they were most carefully chosen and the cases contained a, choice collection Qf objects of the most beautiful character which belonged to the South Kensington Museum (applause). Mr Baker, of Chester, had performed his part of the Exhibition extremely well, aud he would only refer them to the Prince of Wales' plume over the central arch, which was one of the best pieces of free painting that had ever been done, and it was executed in one hour (loud applause). In conclusion, he hoped the Exhibition would long linger in the memory of all present and of all who had visited it, as a place full of pleasant and refining associations. Some persons might ask if he could show any practical good which had been done by the Exhibition there was no doubt an immense amount of good would result from it, but of that they could not now speak con- fidently. That day a gallery of Gibson's statuary had been opened in London, and he was the only Welsh artist, in his (Major West's) opinion, who had ever lived. He was the son of a Welsh carver and attained to the greatest eminence from carving in wood; and it was possible that some one who had visited the Exhibition at Wrexham. and who had seen the sculpture therein contained, would have his mind so impressed with what was true art that he would go away and try to emulate those who had executed those objects which had been so greatly admired. That was what the promoters of the- Exhibition wanted to do that was the object they had in view when they in- a\1gurated that collection of art treasures. It might show some their shortcomings and arouse others to nobler aspirations. Some latent talent might thus be aroused, for it was impossible to say what was in a man until it was brought out of him. It would, in his opinion, arouse a strong feeling of reverence for the remnants of the past of which they had had a profuse and enormous col- lection. Lord Mostyn had sent some of the most interesting manuscripts anyone could possess, and which had existed in the Mostyn library for over 400 years. He did think that his last words should be in praise of those who had lent those excellent things. He would ask one and all present to join him in thanking everyone for their great kindness in having trusted their valuable articles with the people of this country (aftd a better behaved lot of people never entered into a building of this kind, for they had never had a single instance of drunk- enness or ill-behaviour of any kind), and he hoped and trusted those various contributors would never repent the day they lent those beautiful articles to the people of WTrexham and Wales. He hoped a spirit of generosity would long exist in this country and that the power of appreciating it would never die out (ipplause), and that it would remain, as he believed it was now, a fixed principle in the mind of every Welshman, and that they would long think of those who came forward and found amusement and instruction for the people of the country (loud applause). The Chairman said he should only be uttering the feelings of those present when he said how grateful they were to Major West for the frank and open statement he had made in explaining the position in which the exhibition now stood, more particularly in reference to its financial arrangements. He had spoken about the thing being a failure. He (the speaker) must dissent from that opinion, for except financially it had been a great success (applause). It had not. been a failure in any one point but that. It had not been a failure in the number or quality of the articles exhibited, and he believed it had not been a failure, though, perhaps, they must wait for years to prove that, from an educational point of view (hear, hear\ The visitors to that exhibition might fairly be divided into two classes—those who from their special educational advantages and social position had been qualified to appreciate the beauty and excellency of the objects exhibited, and he believed many such had gone away from the Exhibition highly gratified. The other class, and by far the most numerous, had been those placed in unfavourable circumstances, who had not been in a position to know what was a fine picture cr an elegant piece of sculpture. For the first time in their lives they had seen them and who could expect anyone W like that to enter into the Ex- hibition and tl;) discover the intrinsic merits and excellencies ef the things around them ? But did those people go away as they came ? He did not believe they could (hear, hear). He believed the Welsh were an intellectual race of people, and that they had a great deal of refined taste, and if they had more opportunities of seeing specimens of true art they would not have to say that Gibson was the only Welshman who excelled in sculpture. He believed the hidden powers of many Welshmen would be brought out by what they had seen and that many would aspire to be as Gibson. Wilson, or David Roberts. In art he failed to see that the Exhibition had been a failure; it had been a great success. With regard to its finances, £1,500 was the deficiency, and he must express his surprise that it was only that sum, and surely out of the 40,000 who surrounded Wrexham there would not be much difficulty in raising it. He thought it would not be right that the meeting should break up without something being said as to the way in which the deficiency should be met (hear, hear). That it must be met there was no doubt at all (hear, hear). There might be some differences of opinion as to which was the best way to do it; but his idea was for the Mayor and the Town Council to co-operate with the Executive Committee and endeavour to meet it, for the town of Wrexham had gained immensely by it, and he believed the Town Council would be so enamoured of the place that they would wish to establish a permanent institution of the kind. They could begin in a small way and go on increasing, until they had a very good art gallery, and he hoped Wrexham would not allow any other town in North Wales to run away with the honour; but that they would take steps at once to do it. It was not beyond the power of the people of Wrexham and the neighbourhood to pay the ,500, and to lay the foundation of a permanent exhibition. He thought he would only express the feelings of that audience when he said that was one of the things that should be done, and he thought it would be done. Major Cornwallis West remarked that he wished to say how very much obliged the Executive Committee were to the ladies and gentlemen who kindly came forward and sang and played on certain occasions, and he specially alluded to Mrs FitzHugh, of Plas Power, who got up a concert which realised and he wished to express his thanks to that lady for her kindness. And he would aid more. Mr and Mrs FitzHugh had been good enough to dispense the most graceful hospitality during the whole time in which the Exhibition had been opened, and he should be wrong in not stating it, for no one had done more in taking a kindly interest in it than they had. With regard to the illuminated address, which he had inspected, he must say that he detected in it the beautiful work j of his friend, Mr Baker, of Chester, for he did not think anyone else in England could get up such a magnificient address (applause). The musical programme was of a varied, but select character, a novel feature in it being two pex-fcrmances by the St. Giles' hand-bell ringers, who were well received by the audience and in response to a hearty appeal repeated their last piece. Miss Madeleine Roe. who by this time is by no means unpopular in Wrexham, sang Bishop's "Bid me discourse," Venzano's Ah che assorta," and Balfe's I dreamt I dwelt," and on each occa- sion was deservedly applauded by an appreciative audience. Mr Edwin Harriss played two organ solos, the one being Gounod's Grand March Romaine," and the other a selection of English airs; the same gentleman also executed in aMfine and telling manner Oh rest in the Lord," conclud- ing with the celebrated March of the Priests," taken from Costa's Eli. The Mayor proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman for the very efficient and competent manner in which he had presided. The ex-Mayor, in seconding the mofion, said they were singularly fortunate in having the High Sheriff of Denbighshire as their chairman, for he not only made a very excellent chairman, but delivered a very practical and eloquent address, and they would not find a more honourable and upright man in the county (applause). They were deeply indebted, too, to Major West. for the efforts he had made on behalf of the people of Wrexham and of North Wales and the border counties, and he (the ex-Mayor J as a Tory would have reason to thank him as long as he lived (applause). The motion was unanimously carried, In replying, the chairman said he hoped the Town Council would co-operate with the Executive Committee, for the purpose of raising the JS1.500, and that not only would that sum be procured, but also that the foundation would be laid in Wrexham of a permanent Art Gallery. To be practical, he would pay the .£23 guarantee money, and add to it .i30, providing 40 other persons could be found who would give £25 each, or 20 could be found who would contribute each (loud applause). That would raise £1,000, and then from the inhabitants of Wrexham and the neighbourhood, who cculd give their pounds and .£5 they could easily raise another £1 003 or more—(hear, hear)— and that could be done as easily as drinking a cup* of tea, and everyone would go to bed perfectly satisfied, Mr J. F. Edisbury, who played the first time on the grand organ after it was built, had the honour of performing the last in public, and his execution of the National Anthem was admirable, his mani- pulation bringing out the power of the fine instru- ment, which has proved a great attraction throughout the whole period during which the ex- hibition has been opened. Bronze medals have been awarded to a number of the exhibitors in the Industrial annexe, amongst whom are Messrs Elkington and Co.. Liverpool Messrs Ogden and Co., Manchester; Messrs Herts and Co.. London; Mr Jacques, &c., &c. Before closing this notice it is due to the police officer's who have been on duty during the past four months at the building that we should con- gratulate them upon the efficient manner in which they have discharged their duties for by their courteous behaviour towards visitors, their willing- ness to render any assistance they could to strangers, and their strict attention to that impartial discipline which is so essential in a body of men placed in the responsible position which they occupied, they have merited the approba- tion of all who have come in contact with them, aud the fact that no single instance of misbe- haviour has occurred in the exhibition during the visit of some 75.000 persons, shows that the officers of police must have acted in an exemplary manner to have had such thorough order main- tained in the face of the crushes which frequently occurred. On Wednesday next the grand dress and fancy ball takes place in the Art Treasures Exhibition, in honour of Major West, and this will be the final ceremony in connection with the enterprise. The cases have been removed, and their contents packed, and in many instances despatched to the places from whence they cam;, and the hall is being rapidly prepared for the auspicious occasion. A large company is expected, and no effort will be spared to render the occasion worthy of the-object tor which it is inaugurated. In order to facilitate the return of those parties who come from a distance special trains will leave Wrexham early on Thursday morning as follows :— At 1'45 a.m. for Gresford, Rosset, Saltney, Chester. Birkenhead, Liverpool, and Manchester; at 3*40 a.m. for Ruabon, Llangollen, Giyndyfrdwv, Corwen, Bala, and Dolgelly at 3-20 a.m. for Ruabon, Chirk, Preesgweene, Gobowen. and Oswestry. A special train will leave Nantclwyd for Wrexham (via Denbigh and Mold) on Wednesday evening, and returning at 3 a.m. on Thursday from the Wrexham, Moid, and Connah's Quay Railway Station, Wrexham. A train will leave Ruthin at 8 p.m. Denbigh, Bodfari, 8-35 and Mold, All persons desirous of availing themselves of the special train between Ruthin.
