WELSH CRITICS CRITICISED. The concluding meeting; of tIe Menai Bridge Eisteddfod was held on Friday week, when the Lord Bishop of Bangor presided. Mr T. Morgan Owen, her Majesty's inspector of schools was one of the speakers. He eaid—in a certain sense we should imagine that Wales is a peculiarly happy country, because of its multitude of counsellors, advisers and critics (laughter). But, in another sense, we might be led to suppose that she is a very unhappy country, inasmuch as no two of these counsellors, advisers or critics appear to agree (continued laughter). Indeed, if these individuals had their way poor Wales would un- doubtedly follow the example of the weak minded old man who, in trying to please everybody, pleased nobody, and lost his jackass in the bargain (loud laughter). One man speaking concerning a Welshman, says he is "a conceited fellow another would exclaim upon seeing a Welshman, 0, what I a vainglorious man The critic ridicules our eisteddfodau and our habits, and scoffs at our aspirationp. We have also false friends, hollpw- hearted friends—(bear, hear)- who pat us on the, back when they address aWelsh audience and while j they are in Wales, and say, What a grand people the Welsh are; how noble, how ancient, how ( worthy of all praise But these very friends ( are silent when the Welsh are called" barbarians, t wretched, and uncivilised," in the House of E Commons. There not even a dog will wag his tail on behalf of poor Wales (loud cheers). If we Welsh were such soft-headed people as some would s have us to be, we should be more melancholy than J a Londoner under the influence of a November ] fog, and, like him, inclined to commit suicide ] (laughter). I shall not say anything concerning 1 eisteddfodau, as your bishop and others have ] delivered excellent addesses upon this subject. But I am anxious to draw your attention to the deeds < of our ancestors, in order that if there is any youth 1 present who is struggling amidst great difficulties, who is cast down or disheartened, he may be encouraged by the deeds of his forefathers to ] persevere and get on in the battle of life (loud applause). The recollection of such deeds will lire his brain, strengthen his arm and implant hope in j his bosom. I do not wish to speiik to you of ficton, but of historical facts (hear) Upon. reference to ( history it will be found that the Welsh have taken a most prominent part in three of the greatest events I that have taken place in this or any other country. I refer to the Norman Conquest,to Parliamentary Representation, and to the Refo:mation (cheers). Had it not been for the Welsh the Norman Conquest might have been delayed for years; indeed, it might not have taken place. I justify this conclusion thus, Griffith ot Wales was the son-in-law and the great friend of Algar, Eldor- man of Mercia. Again and again was Algar restored to his dominions by the Welsh —(cheers) —despite the efforts of the House of Godwin. Harold, son of Godwin, revenged this by invasions of Wales during one invasion he was supported by his brother Tosti. The Saxons were much weakened by these feuds and inroads (hear). A firm friendship continued to exist between the Welsh and the son of Algar. In consequence of this friendship, and also to revenge themselves upon Tosti, the Welsh took their part at the council of Northampton, where Tosti was doomed to perpetual banishment. When this doom was pronounced, then was rung out not only the death knell of the house of Godwin, but also of the Saxon dynasty (cheers). Tosti, wherever he turned his steps, raised foes against Eugland. He brought Harold of Norway to England. And the battle of Stamford Bridge again weakened the Saxon forces, and aho prevented Harold of England from meeting the Normans upon the seashore and preventing their landing (hear, hear). Thus it will be seen that the Saxons were weakened in the Welsh campaign; and that, owing to the Welsh, England was divided into two bitter factious, Tosti was banished, the Saxons weakened at Stamford Bridge and compelled to leave their southern coast undefended because they had been obliged to meet their Norwegian invaders in the north. But I have not yet done. The sons of Algar, strengthened by their Welsh allies, refused to meet Harold upon the field of Senlac. Had they joined him at the critical turn of that battle, the Normans would have been slain, captured or driven into the sea (applause). From these few statements, it will be seen that the Welsh took a leading part in that conquest, whose influence has become widespread (applause). I now pass on to the days of the only man who has been canonised by thepeopie.the only man whom the popular voice of his daylpronounced a saint, to the first Reformer, and the founder of Parliamentary reproeentaticD, to Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester, the I father-in-law of Prince Llewelyn (cheers). I dare venture to assert that had it not been for the help of Llewelyn, Simon de Montfort would not have been able to gain his end and summon hist, first Parliament (loud cheers). It would be idle to enquire into the innumerable benefits that have been conferred upon this country and through this country, upon the world in general, by the people being represented in Parliament by the people. Once more the Welsh figured in history. Upon the battlefield of Bosworth a Welshman was hailed King of England, and by Welshmen too (hear, hear). Upon that battlefield was raised a banner, invisible it might have been then, but visible enough since and upon that banner was inscribed in letters of fire two words Reformation and Protestantism (enthusiastic applause). I say again, that in three events, each of which revolutionised the world, the Welsh, our forefathers, took a most prominent part. And to show you that the Welsh of tc-day are not unworthy of their ancestors I shall refer to one or two modern events. Nut long ago a shock of sympathy was aroused in the laud by the tale that some men were entombed in the Rhondda valby (cheers). Everybody seemed anxious to do something to rescue these poor people (cheers). Never before had public feeling been more strongly excited on behalf of a handtui of human beings. From the 1 Queen upon her throne to the milk-maid, prayers j were offered up for their delivery (cheers). Aud while public sympathy was active upon the face j of the earth, what were these men doing in the, valley of the shadow of death ? They were s expressing their trust in their Saviour and their God by singing Welsh hymns (loud applause). < And I am convinced of the fact that the angels of heaven joined with those poor colliers in those c hymns (continued cheering). Again, we may well 4 contrast the conduct of those on strike in Merthyr T Tydvil and in Lancashire. Your bishop can bear me out, as he was at Merthyr at the time, or had d but shortly left the place, that during the month f of that strike the poor people of Myrther were well behaved (cheers). Notwithstanding the fact that their wives and little children were starving, not- withstanding all their miseries week after week, not a hand was raised against an employer or his subordinates—not a torch was laid to the buildings or dwellings of the employers—(cheers)—scarcely 3 a thing was done out of order—(eheers)—and these men went to their places of worship as if J nothing was the matter (continued applause). And why did they do these things ? I will tell yoa. Because we Welsh have something to keep, to guard, to protect with jealous care, and that is, the E honour of our glorious ancestors—(loud cheers)— B and we remember that we have in our veins the oldest and purest blood of civilised peoples (ap- plause. But we must not forget that it was the bravest, the best natured and the most religious "\1 people upon the face of this earth that sent their thousands of money to keep gaunt famine and lingering death from the doors of the sufferers in the great strike that it was the noble English people who rewarded the colliers and fed the poor of South Wales (cheers). No wonder, then, that the Welsh are proud of their Queen and her empire. In conclusion, I have only this to say, that if there are any English critics present I trust they will speak of ua as they find us, and not describe us in the words of sarcasm and of decep- tion (continued applause). Mr Samuel Morley, M.P., was the next speaker, and he tried to raise a laugh at Mr Morgan Owen's expense by calling him Mr Williams and then Mr J one. He remarked tl he had been in the R House many years, and that he had never heard a word spoken against the Welsh, and that if any H one dared to do so he would be able to give a very H gcod account of them (the Welsh). Mr Morgan Owen rejoined by stating that there M could be no doubt about his name as he had the honour to have a good old Welsh name. The terms, barbarians, wretched, and uncivilised," he observed, had been applied to the ancestors of the Welsh by Lord Francis Hervey during the debate on Sir John Lubbock's Ancient Monuments Bill. He sarcastically remarked, to the evident ainuse- H, ment of the audience, that doubtless Mr Samuel Morley and every other" hiend" of Waiea was H' absent from the House daring that debate.
I WORTHENBURY HORTICULTURAL SHOW. On Wednesday, the annual flower show of the Worthenburyand Threapwood Society was held in a field near the Rectory, at Worthenbury (kindly lent for the occasion by the Rev. T. H. Puleston). The ground had been mowed specially for the occasion. The exhibits were laid out in two special tents, and the specimens were quite equal, if not superior, to those of previous years. The day was moderately tine—better than was expected in the early morning, when the rain fell in torrents. The Nantwich yeomanry band was in atten- dance, and altogether, under the able management of the secretary, Mr W. R. Urmston, and the treasurer, Mr John Webb, all passed off to the satisfaction of the public as well as the judges, competitors, and others connected with, and interested in, the welfare of the society. The tents were very satisfactorily laid out, there being a good display of exotic plants, foliage, and flowers, as well as numerous British productions. Mr Harold Lees showed a large number from his conservatory. There was no class for needlework in the schedule, but t' e children of the Abenbury and Threapwood schools showed thit they wem b ing trained to be thoroughly useful in domestic life hereif,.er. A large number of alphabets had been worked in wool, and it was difficult to say which was the best. Stocking-knitting in various colours Wfts also displayed, shirts trilled and plain, and other articles of linen clothing were there. With regard to the fruits, though- not numerous they were satisfac- tory, especially the applea and apricots. In garden flowers, dahlian earned off the palm, roses being rather poor, but this is to be accounted for by the lateness of the season. In vegetable produce onions were the most numerously represented, and peag were fair. In the second tent Mr A. P. God-aI, of Isycoed Park, showed a vallota munata and a niphrolepsis exa/tata, as well as other exotics, and Mr R. Howard sent a llancifolium rubmm. and other plants of hothouse growth, but of course these were for display, not for competition. After the judges had completed their work, a first-class lunch was laid out at the Emral Arms by Host Alexander Allinsoa Armstrong, and afterwards a few formal toasts were proposed, it being remarked that this was the best dinner the society has over had laid before them. The following is the prize list:- AMATEURS. Six dessert plums, 1 Mr Samuel Preston, 2 J. Roberts. Six culinary ditto, 1 Mr John Webb, 2 Richard Richards.

EOSSETT FLOWEB SHOW. The third exhibition of the Rosset, Gresford, Pulford, and Dodleston Cottagers Horticultural Soeiety took place in Trevalyn Park (kindly lent to the society for the occasion by Captain Griffith-Boscawen) on Wednesday last. Two tents were pitched near the park entrance, one of which contained the exhibits of the cottagers, and the other those ofthe,amateursand professional gardeners. This is only the third season for the holding of the show, and it was confessed on all sides that Wednesday's exhibition excelled those of previous years. Receiving such hearty support from the gentry of the district, particularly from Captain Griffith-Boscawen, the society is certain to go on and prosper. It enjoys the patronage of the Duchess of Westminster, and its affairs are man- aged bv an influential committee with the Rev T. V. Wickham, as chairman, Mr B. S. Roberts, treasurer, and Mr E Babb. secretary. Under their supervision the arrangements were admirably carried out and the tho.v I was made in all respects a complete success. Iu the cottagers' class there was a large show of vegetables. The peas and beans were very good »ilery, excellent; carrots, poor and grubby eschallots, very fine; turnips, too large and coarse onions, good com- petition and magnificent specimens; potatoes, coarse and scarcely a sound one among them white cabbage, very poor, being grub eaten red cabbage, pretty good and plenty of them; collections of vegetables, numerous and some very good. Amongst the fruits were some'very fine samples 6f apricots, plums, and apples. Tht cut flowers were not of a high order: pansies, very middling- dahlias, very good; roses, of which there were four or five stands, rather poor and asters the same. The centre table was decorated with plants from cottagers and others, and were of a fine description. Mr Ralph, Wrexham Workhouse, and Mr Y. Strachan, seed merchant, Wrexham, sent contributions, and at the entrance of the tent was a nice collection of plants from Eaton Hall. On the whole the cottagers' class looked very well, and filled in as well as could be anticipated. There were 414 entries this year compared with 395 last year. For the prizes awarded to cottagers who kept the best regulated and productive gardens the keenest competition seems to have been at the Rosset, the other villages not making many entries. Mr E. Williams, Trevallyn, was deemed the best of the whole competitors and obtained the extra prize. The second tent contained the exhibits of amateurs, and professional gardeners. The entries were 155 against 82 last year, in class A. (persons who cultivate their own gardens without employmg paid labour) and 63 in class B. (persons who employ labour) against 52 in 1877. There was a slight falling off in the gardeners' entries. The collections of vegetables were certainly inferior ;0 those of the cottagers; coarseness of growth being the disparaging element. With the exception of a good dish of potatoes sent in by the Rev J. R. William, there was but a poor show. As ii the other classes the vegetable marrows were too old and large to be nice. Peas and beans were poor celery and onions much inferior to the cottagers' exhibits. Of the fruits, there was a fine dish of red currants, and apricots looked well, these exhibited by MrJ. Woolrich, Marford House, being greatly admired. The gardeners put in some fine collection of vegetables. Oa the centre table was taste- fully arranged an assortment of exotic and other plants. Mr Swetenham had a splendid lily anda fuschia General Townshend a very fine specimen of a fuschia, which took the first prize and stood about seven feet in height. Pelargoniams were particularly good for the time of year. The scarlet section was also good-the geraniums being fine specimens—well-trained; the first piize was deservedly awarded to the exhibits of General Towns- hend. The roses of this gentleman and those sent in by Mr Chilton were much admired. About twelve bouquets of wild flowers were put into competition, but they were all below mediocrity. Some cut flowers for tabe decoration was tastefully arranged by Mr A. Roberts, and seemed to be worthy of the first pr;z, though they only received the second. Messrs J. Dickson and Sons, Chester sent a collection of small plants and a stand of cut roses Messrs Rush and Yeats, Chester, a nice stand of piccotees, dahlias, geraniums, and other plants Mr E. Sweteuham ex- hibited two .vines in pots, each bearing a couple of bunches of fine grapes. The judges were,For cottage gardens: Mr Thomas Redington (gardener to Messis Rush and Yeats, nurserymen, Chester) and Mr J. Harriss (gardener to Messrs Francis and Arthur Dickson, nurserymen, Chester). For the flower show Mr H. Prince, (gardener to Mr John Scott Bankes, Soughton-ball, Northop), Mr T. Scott, Rosneath, Wrexham, and Mr Redington. During the afternoon the show was visited by most of the aristocracy of the district, amongst whom were the Duke and Duchess of Westminster, the Countess Grosvenor, the- Marchioness of Ormonde, Lady Cunl ffe aud party Mr aud Mrs O-borne Morgan and i.artv Mr, Mr? ard th-= Mi sacs Yurke and Mrs Cf>wpcr and pvfcv General Townshend, CJI. aud Mrs Towrs^tud and' party Mr and Mrs Biggo and p-trty Archdeacon and Miss Wickham Mr and the Misses Swetenham Capt. and Mrs Ford and party Mr and Mrs Pierce Mrs Meredith and party Rev, Mrs, and the Misses McGill Rev A.

Wickham and pirty Mr Trevor Parkins; etc., etc. The prizes were distributed by the Duchess of Westminster, to whom a vote of thanks was proposed by the Rev T. B. Wickham. and seconded by Gaptain G. Boscawen, and carried with cheers. Mr Osborne Morgan, M-P., in proposing a vote of thanks to Captain Griffith Boscawen, for the magnificent site afforded, said he did not think there was a prettier sight in the world-from what- ever point looked at-than a cottage flower show. rhey had it on the highest authority that "Even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one )f the flowers they had seen that day, They in- troduced an element of poetry into lives not much ighted np by that sort of sentiment. The vote vas seconded by the Rev Mr M'GiIl, rector of Bangor, and carried with applause. The band oF he 96th Regiment played during the afternoon, Led in the evening for dancing.

I t-mprunl l&uliamrnt FBIDAY. In the Lords, the Commons' amendments to the Cattle Bill were agreed to ancl a number of bills were pastel. Some conversation followed with respect to the Eurydice and the purchase and fitting out of a training-ship for the London School Board, and their lordships rose. In the Commons, Mr Macdonald gave notice that he will next session seek leave to introduce a Bill to amend the law relating to the use of explosives in fiery mines. Questions followed with reference to the Kaffir war, the cost of which, the Chancellor of the Exchequer explained, had been £400,000; the Bankruptcy Act 1869 (Amend- ment) Act, the reporting of divorce and criminal cases, and the transfer of territory by the Indian Government to the Maharajah Ilolkar of Indore. The House went into committee on the Bishoprics Bill, and the various clauses having been agreed to the Bill passed. SATURDAY. The Commons sat to-day for the despatch of business. The principal measure discussed was the Irish Sunday Closing Bill, which passed the third reading amid cheers, after a division had been taken on an amendment to recommit it. The Territorial Waters Jurisdiction Bill was read a second time, and the Foreign Jurisdiction Bill, as amended, passed the third reading. MONDAY. In the Lords, Lord Truro drew attention to the inadequate pay of the metropolitan police, and declared that they had the further grievance of having no time for retirement and no pensions to look forward to. The Duke of Richmond and Gordon said the matter would be fully considered by the Government. In the Commons, Lord Barrington brought up the reply of her Majesty to the address of the house in reference to Eastern affairs. The reply thanked mem- bers for their cordial support in the course pursued to secure the peace of Europe and the interests of the empire. After a long list of questions had been put and answered, the principal interrogatories having reference to the advance in Central Asia, and the dropping of the Poor-law Amendment Act, the Expiring Laws Con- tinuance Bill Was read a second time, and the Inter- mediate Education (Ireland) Bill, .as amended, con- sidered. TUESDAY. In the Lords, the Sale of Intoxicating Liquors on Sunday (Ireland) Bill was read a second time, on the motion of Lord O'Hagan, the Duke of Richmond stating that the Government had decided to offer no opposition to its progress. Several bills were read a third time, including the Turnpike Acts Continuance, &c., Bill, and other measures were advanced a stage. In the Commons, Mr E. Stanhope, in a very thin house, made the annual statement as to the Indian finances. There was a deficit of more than £ 2,000,000 in 1876-7, and of upwards in 1877-8, mainly I attributable to the extraordinary charges to meet the destitution caused by the famine. Having explained the re-arrangement that had been made as to taxes, Mr Stanhope stated that for the current year it was estimated that, deducting the expenditure for the famine and other extraordinary charges, there would be a surplus of about £2,600,000, the revenue being £63,190,000, and the expenditure £61,039,000. Mr Fawcett criticised the statement, and concluded by moving that The house regards with apprehension the present state of Indian finance, and, in view of the claim of the Crown to employ any number of the Indian troops in all parts of the empire except in the United Kingdom, is of opinion that there is no security against the military expenditure being unduly increased." Mr Dilwyn seconded the motion, which, after some discus- sion, was defeated by 59 votes to 20. The Appropria- tion Bill was considered in committee. WEDNESDAY. In the Lords, five bills were advanced a stage. In the Commons, answering a question, Colonel Stanley said the latest information received by the Government as to the health of the troops in Cyprus did not afford ground for anxiety. Mr Bourke, replying to Mr B. Denison, said the Government knew a Russian minister had arrived at Cabul, but were not aware of the nature of his communications with the Ameer. Mr Bourke informed Mr H. Samuelson that he had not found anything to justify the report of recent Turkish outrages in Thessaly he promised to present a paper to the house on the subject before the end of the sassion. The Expiring Laws Continuance Bill, the Appropria- tion Bill, and the Bishoprics Bill were read a third time. Some discussion took place respecting Mr Consul- General Fawcett's report on the murder of Mr Ogle, in the course of which the Chancellor of the Exchequer, while defending the conclusions of the report, admitted that a case had been made out for further investigation, which the Government were ready to undertake as soon as possible. THURSDAY". In the Lords, the Irish Sunday Closing Bill and the Appropriation Bill were amongst the measures read a third time and passed. In the Commons, in reply to Mr Holt, Sir S. North- cote said there had been no communication with the Pope or his representatives for a renewal of diplomatic relations with Rome. A new writ was ordered for Newcastle-under-Lyme, in the room of Sir E. Buckley, resigned. The Territorial Waters Jurisdiction Bill passed its third reading. Mr Bouflhe explained that steps would be taken to prevent the spread of any mis- apprehension among the Lazes as to the position and duties of England in Asia. At eight o'clock the house adjourned until one o'clock on Friday, when Parliament was prorogued.

The country has been put to the expense of £ 6,427,000for the preservation of peace. A high price; but how many miliions more would war have cost us, by Jingo!—Punch. It is all very well for Mr P. A. Taylor to continue his annual motion for the abolion of corporal punishment in the army, but why draw the line at the corporal ? Surely the sergeant and the private should be equally exempt from the lash ?—Fun. In reference to Cyprus, a contemporary states that there are plenty of foxes on the island. We might have known that any arrangement of Lord Beaconsfield's would befoxey in its nature.—Fun. Judy's cousin's head nurse (who is engaged to B corporal of the Onety-onetli Foot) says she leels well qualified for a soldier's wife, as she has frequent skirmishes with the "infantry" in the nursery every morning during their preparation for breakfast. Some one has found out that the reason a woman cannot throw a stone as straight as a man is because her collar bone is differently shaped to the coiiar bone of a member of the stronger sex. This is a matter to which the attention of the Woman's Rights Asso- ciation should be directed without delay. If ever women are to be in all respects the equate of men, a redistribution cf collar bone is a primary necessity. —Judy. The Queen has commanded Lord Beaconsfield to visit her at Osborne before she goes to Scotland, and he will go down to the Isle of Wight one day next week. Lord Beaconsfield has quite recovered from the exertion and excitement of his home coming.
