Two letters have appeared in the Times, which ill be found reproduced in our Mold news, iggesting the advisability of continuing the aunty prison at Mold. Our correspondent has this week rritten an exhaustive article rclatini" to science l agriculture, which subject was recently brought efore the members of the Vale of Clwyd !hamber of Agriculture by Professor TANNER. 'he article appears in our third page. In our columns will be found a letter on dis- stablishmerit, the first of a series of literary olitico essays from the pen of "J ORX J OES, Observatory Cottage, "whose able and trenchantly rritten contributions have long since made him eservedly popular with the readers of the Vcstcrn Mail. The subjects on which our corres- ondent proposes to treat will embrace numerous uestions of home and foreign politics. Mr. FRED. JONES, lessee of the Tram Com- iany s concern, has just placed a new and mag- incent car on the line. It was run for the first ime on Monday last, when a large company of •entlemcn from Wrexham and the neighbour- ed were taken to the New Inn by Mr."JONES, nd there entertained to luncheon. Speeches by he Hon. GEO. KEXYOX, and others, were made .uring the afternoon. The Alma Lodge, G.U.O". Oddfellows, held a upper at the Black Lion Inn, Hopo-street, on londay last, at which a presentation was made o P.G.M. LrPTox. Monday last was the adjourned licensing day or Wrexham. The magistrates, after consulta- ion, renewed the license to the Elephant and Jastle and White Bear, but hinted that they did o reluctantly. The license for the Corn Ex- hange Inn was also renewed. A gathering of village choirs was held in the 'arish Church, Malpas, on Thursday last, and on he whole was very successful. A most appro- bate and impressive sermon was preached by he Rev. D. HOWELL, B.D., vicar of Wrexham, tfr. J. C. BRIDGES, M.A., Mus. B. (organist Chester Cathedral), presided at the organ. The annual show of the Rhuddlan Cottage xarden Society was held on Thursday. There vas a large and fashionable attendance, the fathering being under the patronage of Major ,nd Mrs. ROWLEY COXWY. The annual competition in firing exercise ,mongst the members of the Denbigh Volunteers ook place on Saturday. The first prize was won )y Private R. DAVIES. On Friday week a sad accident occurred at the )rctty station of Gresford. A poor rag woman, tamed RYAX, was knocked down and killed by an ixpross train from Hereford. The dangers to vhich passengers are exposed at this station are 'ery great. It will be remembered that about me or two hundred yards up the line in the lirection of Wrexham there is a very sharp curve vhich conceais a train almost until it arrives at he platform. Add to this the very heavy gra dient rom Rhosddu CollierytoRossecfandthespeedwith vhich a train would pass round the curve spoken )f through Gresfod station can easily be magincd, and yet with all these dangers there is 10 bridge by which passengers may cross over he line. This accident will perhaps STiggest this crossing want to the minds of the Company.
FARMERS' EDUCATION. The lecture recently delivered to the members )f the Vale of Clwyd Chamber of Agriculture )y Professor TANNER, of the Government Science Department, Kensington, has suggested some rery interesting articles from our correspondent, ho has recently favoured us with his opinion tpon agriculture in North Wales, one of which appears this week in our columns. It is not only n tho a') of Clwyd, however, that the subject s causing attention. Within tho last fortnight he subject has been discussed in The Times, n which paper Mr. R. JASPER MORE, of Liindley, Shropshire, referred to it in a letter sntitled "Foreign farming and Dealing first with the want of a general know- edge on farming abroad, which he hopes the Royal Commission on Agricultural Depression will re- ft he remarks that the Commissioners are not nclined to over-look the important influence of 1 high-class education for the rising generation of armers. Whatever is the out-come of the in- LuÎry, he hopes that the Government will recom- nended that some assistance should be rendered )y them in the establishment of one or more nstitutions for the promotion of instruction n agricultural science. The work, which for nany years has been satisfactorily carried out n Ireland in the direct subvention of agricul- tural education, he suggests may be well extended ;0 England and Scotland. Mr. MORE then proceeds to point out that there are three ichools of agriculture subsidized by the French >-overnnien!r, and several state colleges for the lame object are maintained at the public expense n America. What these countries are doing, le argues, ought to be done by England. The Cirencester College he considers is prohibitive by ts charges from the general body of agri- julturists. What is wanted is one the advantages )f which can be derived for £40 or £50, when ;he sons of tenant farmers could avail themselves )f it. This letter of Mr. MORE was followed in I few days by one from "ERICA," who dates from Spa, and who gives several interesting details clative to the Agricultural Institute of Gem- )loux. He shews what a great success this jollege has been to the farming commuulty in Belgium, and what little cost it has been to ,he Government. Here every advantage which noney and experience can provide is offered, ncluding board and lodging and instruction !rom an admirably qualified staff of professors, !or £28, while day students are only charged £12 annum. Before, however, we can expect the Govern- ment to provide agricultural colleges, it must be shown that their advantages will be used thoroughly, and in no half-hearty way. As our jorrespondent FFERM," in his article else- where, points out, the Society of Arts for several years conducted examinations in horti- culture, gardening, &c., but in 1875 discon- tinued them owing to the limited number who wailed themselves of them. It might be so with these agricultural colleges. First and foremost i love and desire for scientific farming must be engendered; and for this the classes under the auspices of the Government Science Department will give every facility. The arrangements for promoting classes and carrying them on have been Well conceived, and the difficulties which stantl in the way of them can be easily sur- mounted if any Chamber of Agriculture would go to work with a will and determination.
