GRAND BAZAAR AT WYNNSTAY.
GRAND BAZAAR AT WYNNSTAY. A bazaar was opened in the Grand Hall of Wynn- stay on Tuesday last, the object of which was to raise a sum towards clearing off the debt on the church at Penycae which was erected about twelve months ago, and on which a sum of about .£800 remains. The bazaar was under the patronage of Sir Watkin and Lady Williams Wynn and the lead- ing gentry of the neighbourhood. The grand hall looked beautiful with its additional adornment of the many coloured and rich articles which were arrayed on the stalls and hung about the lower part of the walls. The valuable old pictures were inspected and enjoyed by a large number, the one which attracted especial attention being the large oil painting of Sir Watkin and his lady, which was presented to Lady Williams Wynn, by 11,947 Cymri in 1858. In addition to the many feasts for the eye there was enjoyment for the ear, Mr. Sparrow occasionally giving some beautiful selec- tions on the organ. Rarely has a bazaar been held amidst such pleasing surroundings, and all those who attended on Tuesday and Wednesday must feel thankful to Sir Wa'kin and his lady for offering to them the opportunity of supporting an excellent object under such excellent circumstances. Of course throwing open the large hall, contribut- ing largely to the bazaar, and patronising it was not, the full extent of the hOD. baronet's liberality. Few, indeed, have visited Wynnstay without partaking of the hospitality characteristic of the ancient barony, and therefore it follows as a natural consequence that the most liberal hospitality was offered and welcome to all who, on Tuesday and Wednesday, came within the shadow of Wynnstay. Unfortunately, Sir Watkin was indisposed in London, but his good lady worthily acted on his behalf, her lieutenant on the occasion being O'veu Slanev Wynne, Esq, The bazaar was publicly opened about two o'clock by Owen S. Wynne, Esq., who, in the name of Sir Watkin, declared the baza-ar open. The stalls were arranged on three sides of the hall, the head being occupied by that for refresh- ments. To begin on the left hand side of the hail, the first stall was that of the Misses Thonasoir, who were assisted by Miss Hall, Miss Kyrke, ana Mr. Henry Howard. In the centre of the table stcod a large sofa cushion, on the top of which was an album, and around it scrap books, texts* d'oyleys in silk embroidery, glove boxes, fang, handkerchief boxes, r chly ornamented smoking caps, small picture frames, mantel piece borders, butter dishes, &c. To the right was a beautiful cosy, around which were a number of pin cushions, dolls and babies shoes, and a quantity of needle- work of value. On the left was an ornamental bracket with a rich covering, children's caps, &c., and tha front of the stall was hung- with a number of silk and satin aprons, tidii.es, and other toilet articles. At the back of the stall was a quantity of children's clothing, a number^ dolls suspended from the candle brackets, nek antimacassars, scripture tests, &c. Prominent -in connection with this stall wecre several crayon sketches, represent- ing scenes da different, parts ot Wynnstay Park, scenes near Peniaitfii and DyfEryo, one at Dolgelley, representing a flood in the valley with mist risir^g with rain, and a companion 'picture, the | subject -boing smset after the flood. The whole of these were the work-of Mrs. O^en S. Wyjs.no. Here, also, were a couple of oil paintings, one, a hunting scene, by Mr- F. Tbotxson, Penybryc Hall, and the other, the track of the sunbeam/* by Mr-. Henm Howard, of Store Honse, K^dt-r- minster.

.p BAZAAR AT MOLD. A bazaar was opened in the National Schools, Mold, on Wednesday last, the object of which was to raise money to clear off arrears of debt on the Parish Church, to assist in repairing the tower, and to add to the funds l of the building of the Welsh Church. The wardens of the parish church will take up to £200, and above that will be handed to the trustees of the Welsh Church. Lord Richard Grosvenor opened the bazaar about two o'clock, and amongst a large number present at that time were Mr. H. C. Raikes, LI. P., Mr. John Roberts, M.P., Messrs. B. Frost (High Sheriff), E. Thompson, Henderson, G. Bellis, A. T. Keene, T. Kelly, C. T. Morgan, F. Musgrave, J. Corbett, Rv. R. Ellis (Vicar of Mold), Rev. T. Protheroe, &e., and a very 'j' large number of ladies. Lord RICHARD, in opening the bazaar, said such a j work WAS not very dithcult as they may imagine, but he always thought that opening a bazaar was very much like opening an oyster, hecause unless it wa" done skil- fully they were very likely to hurt themselves and spoil the contents. (Laughter). He would not detain them long with the few remarks he had to make. He was ■quite sure they had all come with their pockets full of mcsaey. They all knew the objects of the bazaar, and the great difference in buying there and at shop was that what money they spent there was really weJJ spent, (Hear, hear). Perhaps they knew the wsy thetf ■bargained in Turkey. The way they made a purchase ■there was this- They saw the Turk sitting down. Tbcn Tthey would begin to talk tálll about various subjects, say the wealfuer, the position of the British fleet, or anything eke they liked. Eventually ley would mention a j»ojc<?, and the Turk would mention a,price, I and as a matter of course ;they would be ves-v farapa:t. Then they would appreach a little, and the Turk would apsioach a little, and then they would begin conversation again. Perhaps after a '-second meeting they would feme to an agreement, the article would be bouu&t. At a bazaar the operation should be reversed, buyer should say., ":I should like that-article, what/is the highest price can give for it ?" (Laughter). They all knew the -object of the bazaar wes to gain HMmey, to pay a small deist on the restora-tieii of the old'fhurch, to aid funds'for repairing the towfiv, and the remainder would be applied for the building of the new church. Having said this he would venturetto say a few words to the sellecs, and to tender the advice of the Aanerican, when he sent his son to start A 'business. He said, go into the wocM and get a. living, honestly, if you can, but g3t a living." (Laughter). With-these few remarks he would declare the bos-aar open. (Applause). The Rev. R. ELK* said he would just interpose be- tweet: the vendors-and tbe buyers for aonement tn say, in the name of thetr hurchwardens, the ladies presiding j at the stalls, and all interested in the bRlvar, how very thaaStful they werfs to Lord Richard .Grosvenor for having come therecthat day to open the bazaar. (Hear. hear). The interest which he, and his brother the Duke of Westminster, in all that concerned t'le town Mold was illustrated by Lord Richard coming from town that day to be present at their gathering. (Hear, Iieair and applause). Lord RICHABD very briefly responded, and the business at once eoEimenced. The bazaar was a very large one and of a superior much of the.goods being costly and rare. There were eight stalls exclusive of the refreshment stall and a Member of small bye tables. In the room first en- tered were three stalls. At the head was the stall presided over by Miss Williams, Wrexham-street; Miss Edwards, Maes-yiDre; Miss Venmere, Maes-y-Dre; aiiil the Misses Edwards, High-street. In the centre of the-stall was a small work table, around which were a quantity of sofa cushions, beaded footstools, and a. number of dolls (ÍJeautifully dressed. The left hand Sil was marked by a large wax doll dressed as a bride, and on the right were a group of smoking caps richly ornamented. Frail these rose a smdl table bearing pfeoto frames and ether small fancy articles. Each end of-the stall was filled with a quantity of rich goods, such as antimacassars in wool, and other kinds of needle work. ,)ax>acese goods in great variety, cosies, ladies work baskets, and boxes, &c. fVdd spaces were fiEed with small f<uods, such as pin. cushions, vases, lamps, music cases, small fancy boxes, toilet goods, card dishes, and so on, vhilst the front wae marked with a leng stool richly cushioned. The front part of the stall was hung with antimacassars in various .kinds of work, beHled patterns, &c., and the head and back was adorned with a large quantity of Japanese sunshades, wraps, and other smaller goods. By the side and belonging to the same ladies, was a.mall table bearing a collection of bos-bons, bottles of jam, sauce, scent, and so on. Running the longway of the room was the stall of MM. Ellis (The Vicarage), Misses Lewis (Preswhalfa), and Miss Lush (The Vicarage). This-stall was filled with a quantity of very rich goods, and was divided into three by a trio of cvork-tables with deep borders, and beating small banners, pieces of china ware, &c. Lender each of these tables were sofa cushions, dressed dolls, and-every description of ladies' work-baskets and boxes, fans, and beaded foetstools. Hanging from the head of the ■ .tall were a couple of small mirrors, and im- mediately behind these was a tray beautifully beaded, andkbearing a number of rich fancy articles. The back and front of the stall was hung with aprons in rich material and excellent work, small antimacassars in all kinds .If work, toiler, bags, tidies, d'oyleys, &c. The head of the stall was ornamented with Japanese sun- shade^. fancy baskets, ,&c. On the opposite side was a second bible arranged in tiers, which was also the pro- perty of Mrs. Ellis ard the other ladies of K o. 2 stall. On the lower tier were collections of ware in Terra Cotta, from Watcombg, Swiss ware, and Yallerey. On the second tier, collections of Vallerey, Dunmore, &c., and several articles, pkted and in glass. Above this was a Chinese kettle, aad on each side a banner and a Japanese cabinet. This shelf also bore a quantity of other smaller articles. Above this were several figures in piaster and on the left wall hung several plates or dishes beautifully painted. On the right of this table was a bee ..hive full of snttdl articles, and under the care of Miss Ellis, and in a room at the back was a long table of excellent articles held in reserve. At the If,wer end of the ,room was the staJl -of Mrs. Hedley, Mrs. Griffith, Mise B. Jones, and Miss Bache. This stall was very prettily arranged, the numerous articles being set off by several graceful plants. On the right was a beautiful drawing room chair and on the left a ladies work table bearing some rich and tasteful goods. In the centre of the stall was a What-not loaded with a number of choice articles. Strewn about were a number of prettily dressed dolls, bonnets, pin cushions, faney boxes, toilet articles, ladies work boxes, &c. In front were hung a quantity of goods in needle work, and at the back a number of antimacassars in wool and crewel work some of which were very beauti- ful. In front the stall was a bran pie into which a .a large number ,of dips were made. Passing to the other room the stall on the right was ;t.1-¡at of Mrs. Phillips and the Misses Ashton. The stall .bore a quantity of parian and plaster ware, a number .of pretty work tables, articles of all descriptions in wool werk, a Japanese dinner service, a large quantity of Terra Cotta ware, ornamental brackets, photo frames, water colour copies of famous pictures by Landseer. Here also were a couple of very beautiful banner screens in crewel work on black silk, one of the subjects repre- sented being The frog that would a wooing go," and the other a companion subject "Will he come?" I Amongst a host of other things were dolls in the (postunxe of Norman peasants, a number of plant and flower baskets made by Mrs. Phillips's gardener, &c. Next to this was the stall of Mrs. Keene. Here were a couple t-f water colour drawings by Mr. Horatio Lloyd (County Court judge for the district), one being a scene near Chester and the other a bit of mountain scenery. A aovelty here was a quantity of terra cotta painted by Mrs. Richard Williams, Wrexham, whose ability as an amateur artist is well-known locally. A number of pretty tea eoiies and table covers with Indian em- broidery, whick had been sent especially for this bazaar from North Weat Indian, added much to the beautiful ap pearance of the stall. A number of autimacassars in various kinds of work, toys, imitation flowers, in Parisian manufacture, cases of stuffed birds, sent by Mr. Steve.as, Chester, with an innumerable lot of smaller articles,, made up a very excellent stall. First on the other side of the room was the stall of Mrs. Smi th and Miss Thomas. Here was a drawing in sepia of an old house in the locality, oleographs, prints, photos, and other pictures. A large quantity of wool work, dolls, dolls' clothing, hand-painted work-tables, &c. Some useful goods in the form of children's cloth- ing, a quantity of embroidery, and a host of small but rich articles. Next to this was the stall of Mrs. Barker, Mrs. Fletcher, and Mrs • Davies. The stall, which was very prettily arranged, had a couple of boats, one named Cetewayo and the Chelmsford, a large quantity of fancy stationery, oerfumery, Japanese goods, wool and embroidery work, excellent antimacassars, wraps, r &c., and a couple of models of the Cleopatra needle in wax, the work of Messrs. Field, London, children's clothing, fans, and ornamental bottles of preserves, book-markers, Japanese toys, and so on. In a room on the right was an "art" gallery, under the care of Mr. Hedley. In fact, it was more than an "art" exhibition, it being "artful." However, it was well patronised, and all were highly pleased with their inspection. Refreshments were given by Mr. J. Corbett; Mr. Swift, and Miss Jackson (Royal Oak), being also con- tributors in this department. The bazaar was open also on Thursday, and we hope the results were satisfactory.
DENBIGHSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. The following is the report of Mr. Lloyd Williams, the County Surveyor, read at the Quarter Sessions, held at Wrexham last week, which we were compelled to hold over from our last issue :— "Maes Gicynedd.—At the last Quarter Sessions I was instructed to report upon the necessity of a bridge at this place for the general public convenience. Captain Best, the chairman of the highway board for the dis- trict, kindly accompanied me and some of the way- wardens interested, met us on the proposed site to urge their claim to a bridge and point out the need of it to the neighbourhood. The road running in connection with the above is used by some dozen farmers to go to Llanrhaiadr-yn- Mochnant, and is also available as a bridle road between that place a--1 Llanarmon, although the track over the mountain is difficult, if not impossible to distinguish. A bridge at this point would be undoubtedly a valuable acquisition to the district, but as a public convenience it is not required, as there is no thorough traffic, neither can there be any until a large sum is spent in making roads over the hill. The plan of the bridge submitted is not suitable to the place, neither could a builder work from it. I should therefore recommend that the plan be rejected, even if the Court considers that the exigencies of the neighbourhood have been made out and decide to contribute. The ford at present used could be much improved by replacing some large stones on the lower side (which have been washed away) and thus cause a deposit in the bed of the river at that point, and with very little trouble and attention could always be kept in fairly good order. Lk-icesog Bridge.—The site of this proposed bridge is on the road from Llanrhaiadr-yii-Cinmerch to Cyfíy- lliog, and near Llewesog Hall. I have marked the site on the ordnance map for your information. The owners of property in the neighbourhood haye agreed to "iüelè the road for some distance, and the townships will bear half the cost of the new bridge if the county will bear the other half. If the road between Llewesog and Cyffylliog were thoroughly repaired, I consider that the briilge would be a public convenience. I have prepared a plan, which I beg to submit for your consideration. H Penffordd-dUg Bridge.—The flood of the 17th August caused this bridge to burst up. I provided a temporary accommodation £ ftr foot passengers, but by the advice of the Clerk of the Peace did not do so for carriage traffic. I now lay before you a design fora new bridge, which I had hoped to have been allowed to build to the west of the old bridge, by which arrangement I should have had to alter the course of the river slightly when the bridge was finished. The work would have been more satisfactorily and expeditiously done, as I should not have had to contend against a pos- sible rising of the water andn disturbed foundation. Mr. Wynne, of Coed Coch, of the landowners adjoining -saw the advantages of the proposal, and at once agreed to it; but Mr. llesketh, the other owner of land, objected, as in his opinion the river would probably return to its old course. I must, therefore, rebuildhe bridge on the site, but shall have to divert course of tir-e -strerm while the work is being carried<311. So that ro delay shall take place I am prc- vided tenders your selection. Mr. Wynne has kindly allowed a temporary road to he made through his fields upon compensation being paid to the tenant for ckanage done, which ? feel sure the court will appn ve, as without this road, great inconvenience would hare'been caused. "Font Nerajdd, IAangomiew.—This bridge has been trreetly damaged by the flood, and to save expense I undertook the responsibility of having some work done at ■ once, as it was rapidly getting wor.,e. I consulted Mx. Sandbach on the subject, as his property close to the bridge had suffered, and the repairs required to both ware best carried on simultaneously. It will be necessary 1'0 protect this bridge furthermore by a framework of oak fixed in the bed of the river underneath the bridge, nailed in with strong stone pavement. "Pont Meredith.—The cuhert on one side of this -bridge was very much injured by the August flood, and ■the road underneath impassible. I found that for a few pounds it could be repaired, so I have had it done in a satisfactory man act. Pont y Gv'jiddd.—The framework and pavement under the above will have to undergo thorough repairs when the water is sufficiently low to allow of such work. "LlculjnÍí.ta,!hÚ.(rn Culvert.—-The enormous quantity of debris brought down by the flood filled up the culvert and the water ik-wed into the streets and houses. As the responsibility < f keeping a portion of this culvert clear rests with the county, I lost no time in having the necessary wtirk done of removing the accumulation. Pout Bach- -Llanrwst.—Some years ago a request was made to this court by the ratepayers in this neigh- bourhood to contribute towards widening the road within 100 yards of the town side of the bridge. The request was refused as it was thought those more immediately interested and benefitted by such local improvement 8hould undeiiahe the work. This suggestion is now likely to be carried out, and I have been requested to ask if the Court would authorise the expense of the removal of some obstructions which are dangerous to foot passengers and impede traffic, and to alter the direction of the parapet wall, which now spoils the line of road. The total cost would not exceed £14 or £15, and would certainly be a great improvement. Some of the justices of the Petty Sessional division have in- spected the place and have authorised me to say they entirely approve of the proposal. "LlalCilt Bridge.—The retaining wall, which was built here to confine the river to its course, has been slightly damaged by the flood, and I am only waiting for the water to subside to make good the injury. "Nmltglyn Ticarage Bridge.—The river is under- mining the bank immediately above the bridge, and if means are not taken to stop it the river will work for itself a new course, and serious damage will accrue. I propose, with your concurrence, to make the bank safe at the point mentioned. "Brookhouse Bridge.—Some time before my prede- cessor's death, a wall was built along the road here parallel with the river, jointly by the county and the owner of the adjoining mill. Some damage was done to this wall by the floods. I should be glad of instructions to repair such portions as I consider the county to be fairly liable for. CystogilU Bridge.—The abutment on one side of the above has been undermined by the recent floods, and the arch at the corner has dropped, and as the damage was likely to increase I thought it advisable to have the repairs done before I .could get the necessary instructions from this court. "Bradley Mills Bridge.—The parapet of the wing wall on the Wrexham side of this bridge has been knocked down, by what means I have failed to ascer- tain, though I have made every enquiry. The re- building ot the walls should be done without delay. Packsaddk Bridge.—The river runs parallel with .the roadway of the above bridge for some distance, and I have been asked to report that the parapet wall has been thrown down by seme mischievous person, conse- quently there is little or no protection for the safety of foot passengers for some 16 yards. I have more than once reminded the applicants that our legal adviser dis- putes the liability of the county to do the work. Pont Talwrn.—The re-pointing of this bridge has become a positive necessity, and a drain across the entrance to a field contiguous is also much wanted. I propose to have this done as soon as possible. Llangedicyn Bridge.—The oak frame under the above is nearly gone, and the pavement between is damaged. The .repairs can be only done when the water is low, otherwise the expense would be considerable. Gleai Tanat Issa Bridge.—The parapet wall here bulges very much, and I think it desirable to have the stones refixed before the winter. If the stones fall they will probably break to pieces. "TrtMern Bridge.—The ironwork of this bridge requires scraping and painting, otherwise the buckle plates which support the roadway will soon be rusted through. One of the landowners on the Llansilin side has enclosed a portion of the road, and rather cramped the turning- up the hill. I shall be glad of your authority to order the removal of the encroachment. The New County Buildings, Wrexham.—The work here is now completed and occupied, and I trust will be found to answer all the purposes for which it was intended. Some additional cost beyond the original estimate has been incurred by certain alterations which have been made and approved by the Secretary of State. Supt. Wilde, Inspector Sheean, and Sergeant Dutton have accepted their new quarters and appear comfortably settled. I have been in communication with the Wrexham Waterworks Company with the view of obtaining terms for a water rate, and their manager seeing the difficulty of supplying a public building such as this upon the principle of a rateable value, liberally offered to give a supply by metre at a mininum rate. The Yeomanry Sergeant Major had removed a quantity of ammunition which was stored in one of the turrets, and he had asked to be allowed to take the copper door, which I believe was not placed there at the expense of the county. I shall be glad of instructions in this matter. Llansilin Lock-up.—The painting here, which was so much wanted, is completed to my satisfaction. Rhosllanerchrugog Lock-up.—This lock-up is in great need of painting and cleaning. Nothing has been done in this district since it was built. I should be glad of an order. Denbigh Lock-up.—The new windows, &c., ordered for the bedroom of this lock-up have been completed, and are a great improvement and a source of great comfort to the occupier. "I received an application from the Postal Telegraph Department for permission to fix pole:, and wires over the 100 yards of the Bangor Isycoed Bridge. I signed the form of consent, adding that it was subject to the approval of this court. "The Guardians of the St. Asaph L'nion served a notice upon me that they required to lay a water pipe across Llandidas Bridge, and, finding that no damage was likely to accrue, I offered no opposition." This portion of the report concluded with a list of ) bridges and their locality which he considered may not be crossed by a locomotive without danger to the J public* 1

made on the 2nd December, 1878. That order was not obeyed, and a summons was taken out and a fine was imposed. Out of the last 190 possible attendances the boy had only made 19. He was twelve years of age, and the Board had decided now to ask for an order to send him to an industrial school. The magistrates sent the boy to the Clio" for four years. Alice Dodd, Buckley, was summoned for not sending her son Thomas regularly to school. Mr. Roberts said he had only been to school five t.imes since last June. Mr. Thomas Edwards stated that Thomas Dodd was 13 years old, and since last June, instead of attending about 125 times, he had only attended five times. They asked for an attendance order. The magistrates made an order. Evan Ellis, a tradesman living at the Pentre, was summoned for the irregular attendance of his daughter, Mary Hannah, at the Mold National School. An order was made on the 19th May last, since which time the child had only made 39 attendances out of 175. As the defendant did not appear, the magistrates saying it was disrespectful to the court, ordered a warrant to issue. William Matthews, Mold, who was stated to be a candidate for the Local Board and a man of some standing, was summoned for the irregular attendance of his child, and an attendance order was made. George Williams, Mold, was summoned for the irre- gularity of his daughter Mary, ten years of age, who had made 49 attendances out of a possible 112. It was stated that the defendant had four children, not one of whom went to school regularly. An attendance order was made for the Mold Board School. BROTHERLY LOVE. Smnuel and William Jones, two brothers, colliers, be- longing to Buckley, were summoned for a breach of the peace. P.C. Thomas Jones stated that at eleven o'clock at night on Saturday, the 4th October, the defendants were fighting in the rtad at Buckley. The Chairman said "You are both bound over in your own recognisances of £5 each, to keep the peace for six months. THE WHISKEY ADULTERATION CASE. At the last sessions the magistrates convicted Mr. Roberts, a Mold publican, for selling adulterated Irish whiskey, adjourning the case to the present court to give the defendant's solicitor, Mr. H. G. Roberts, an opportunity of selecting the points upon which he could ask for appeal. Mr. Roberts now brought for- ward these points, and after discussion it was decided to grant him leave to appeal upon the following points That no notice was uiven by the purchaser to the seller, or his agent, in the terms required by the 14th section of the Act; that the portion of the sample which was not analysed was not sealed up previous to the selected portion being analysed and that the cer- tificate and portion of the liquor used were returned at diffprent times. Mr Roberts agreed to procure the necessary surety Of S40 required by the Act.
