We are informed upon the best authority that Captain Arthur Price has resigned his appoint- ment as chief constable of Denbighshire. He has already left Denbigh, and his house- hold furniture and other effects at head quarters are about to be sold by auction.

RUTHIN. MAJORITY OF MR LLOTD, OF BERTH AND RHAGGAT. Rejoicings on an extensive scale took place on Wednesday at Berth, near Ruthin, in celebration of the comincr of age of Mr E. O. V. Lloyd, whose ancestors have for generations past owned the estates of Rhaggat and Berth, extending for many miles throughout the Vale of Clwyd, the land being included in parishes from Llansantffraid, near Corwen, to Llanrhaiadr, near Denbigh, and the present owner inherits it as the heir of his uncle, his late father's brother. The young gentleman attained the age of 21 years on Tuesday, the 20th inst., but the rejoicings at Berth fixed for that day were postponed until Wednesday in consequence of I other demonstrations taking place at Llansaint- ffraid. 0 At Llanbedr and Ruthin a subscription list was opened amongst the tenants and friends, the result I being that the most liberal contributions were made and a good sum placed at the disposal of the committee who, amongst others, were—Rev T. J. Hughes, rector of Llanbedr, chairman; Rev John Davies, Llanynys; Messrs John Jenkins, T. J. Jesse J.P., T. Bacon, Llanbedr Hall; John Evans, Griffin Inn; Wm. Green, jun., Ruthin; Griffith Roberts, Joseph Blake, John Griffith, John Jones, Waen; J. Cowan, Llanbedr L. Powell Jones, Llanbedr; D. Davies, Penybryn; and T. Stephen Jones, who very efficiently discharged the duties of honorary secre- tary. The proceedings commenced about two o'clock, at which hour a brass band made up of Denbigh Volunteers and those of the late Volunteer Band at Ruthin, headed a procession on to the lawn. First of all came the school children of Lianbedr, carry- ing flags and banners, a.nd accompanied by the Rector, they were followed by the children from Llanynys, with banners and flags, the schoolmaster being in charge and the rector. The children of Ruthin Union also werepresent, looking exceedingly clean, nice, and happy. They were in charge of the master, Mr Williams, assistant matron. Miss Williams, and the schoolmaster. Then followed the tenants and general public. Cheers having been given for the heir and some special songs sung by the children, preparations were madS for the most interesting portion of the proceedings, uiimelv, a presentation to Mr Lloyd. This took place on the lawn in front of the house, and was witnessed by a very large number of gentry, tenantry, and friends; Mr Lloyd who arrived with a select party, who had been lunching at Berth, being well received with cheers. The special gift was a magnificent album the covers being in purple velvet on the centre of which in gold were the letters E. O. V. L. surmounted by the family crest, the clasps and binding being also of gold. The interior consisted of six leaves of vellum illuminated in a most beautiful manner. The borders were particularly artistic, whilst the lettering was perfection, the whole being the work of a celebrated heraldic artist in London. It was supplied by Mr Wm. Green, junr, printer, Ruthin. The following is a copy of the contents of the album:— 70 Edward Owen Vaughan LloVd, Esq., qf Berth and Rhaggat. Dear Sir,-We. whose names are underwritten, tenants of Berth aud Khaggat and other friends, have great pleasure in offering you our warmest congratulations 011 the attainment of your majority. Your accession to your family property, yhile it will add to your resources, will also invest you with new responsi- bilities and open to you elÙarged opportunities of usefulness, and we hope and trust that you will fulfil the duties of your 1t°,.ition with honour to yourself and family, and. that it will be your constant aim and,endeavour to promote the well-being of all withiu your influence. We ask yoùr acceptance of this album as a token of the esteem aud regard we entertain towards your widowed mother and yourself, and we fervently pray that the watch- ful care and blessing of Divine Provirlence will ever accom- pany your steps, and that this auspicious day will be crowned by a long aud happy life. Then followed the names of fha tenantry and other friends; numbering nearly two hundred. An excellent morocco case was provided for the album. Mr T. Stephen Jones, Ruthin, Hon. Sec., having read a copy of he address, The R-V T. J. Hughs addressed Mr Lloyd saying that be bad great pleasure both personally and as rector of the parish, in complying with the request made by the committee that he should present to him that album as a memento of the happy event they that day celebrated (applause). Hs that day entered upon a position of great responsibility, and it must be a source of great pleasure to his famiiy and a source of great satisfaction and encouragement to him to find that he entered upon it with the hearty good wishes of so largo a circle of friends as the scene that day and the previous day bore testimony of (applause). He was glad to say that the contributions towards the gift came not ouiy from the tenantry, bat from a very large circle of friends and neighbour?, and even the humble cottagers cmne forward willingly to aid in the good wcik (applause). The people of W.Ies had their failings, as they were often reminded, but. their was one national characteristic of theirs tbat they were always delighted when they could rally round and do honour to their ancient families (wpplause). The ancient homesteads and families of their old country he believed were one of the best bul- wurks of their land. The family of Mr Lloyd was amongst their ancient families, and though his father and grandfather were connected with an aojoining county, though standing as he thend:dinthe parishofLlanbedr he cocld not but remember that their was an ancient ancestor of his (Mr Lloyd's), who by his legal and other abilities attained ior himself a high position amongst the men of Wales, and that was Judge LJoyd of Berth, and he may add, for the encouragement of the young people present, that he received at Ruthin Grammar School that education which he turned to so good an account in after life (applause). That beautiful album which he now had the pleasure of handing to him (Mr Lloyd) when he looked upon it in after life would remind him of the feeling of esteem entertained for it. It would be some- thing for hitn to transmit in after years to those who came after him as a mark of esteem and respect enter- tained towards himself, his mother, and sister, by their many well wishers (applause). He concluded by trusting thr.f blowing may accompany him through life, may His fatherly hand be ever him, and may he be spared to wiiness many and many an anniversary of that au.-picious day (much applause). Mr Lloyd, who was received with cheering, replied at some length, in the coarse of which he said that he had to appear before them that day in a new capacity, and he knew they would sympathise with him and over- look his failings, for he could not adequately express his appreciation of that mnrk of their respect. He felt that day in an entirely nev. position. He had launched forth as it were into the great world of thought 8ud action, and he had a great task before Jiim if he was to become, as they wou'd wish him to become, a worthy representa- tive of the ancient family to which allusion had been made. He had m a solemn determination, however, to do his utmost to comprehend the wants aud interests of his tenants, and to do his duty in the little world with which he should have to do (applause). As the last rays of the sun of boyhood's life had departed, and had entered on manhood, he was entitled to the poBsession of his estate, and be could not help feeling pleased that in entering upon it they had given him such a welcome and exhibited towards him such marks of respect (applause). He was reminded of the beautiful words of Longfellow when he said— In the world's broad field of battle, In tilt" bivouac of life, Be not like dumb driven cattle, Be a hero in the strife. Longfellow's exhortation in "Excetsior" reminded him ¡ that now he had higher responsibilities, higher position, higher duties, and he desired to enter into a clear Com- prehension of this higher life (applause), and to lay himself and his opportunities for doing good at their feet, and to promote the interests of thœe connected with him, and the interests of his ctuntry generally (hear, hear). He thanked the rector for the very kind way in which he had alluded to some of the past mem- bers of his family, particularly to one who was the valued friend of Lord Eldon, namely, Judge Lloyd, of Berth, one of the great men who held a high position in that country as an eminent judge and lawyer. Passing on to the other topics, he could not help feeling thank- ful to Almighty God that they now enjoyed the advan- tages of peace (applause). H feared some months ago that when they met there on that occasion it would be with the knowledge that the country to maintain its national honour and interests had been plunged into an awful war, but he was glad to find that through the great statesmanship and splendid policy of a truly great and much valued man the national honour and iutereats of the country had been secured and peace also preserved (cheers). Alluding directly to the gift, he said he was dad to see so many friords present that day to prosent hat be?utifal album. He should not merely look upon it as a beautiful present; should not value it because the clasps were pure gold and the cover beautiful velvet; he cared not so much about that as about the feelings of friendship that had prompfed the gift which shewed that his faruiiy had inoecd a placa in their affection", and they felt that, the family had done some little for the country—(applause)—and that his father and grand- fat hor and other members were known and respected amongst them (hear, hear). Having at some length the.- addressed toe company in Welsh, he thanked the rector and committee for the part they had taken in lhat day's proceedings. He assured them that, in accepting the gift he seemed to rtcc vi the very hearts and friend- shio of the Welsh people to himself in all its associa- tioris, and he sincerely.trusted that when in the evening cf life the curtain should fall that had risen tfcat day in fonie splendour, that he m"y leave a nrano behind him that would live in the recollection of them all as one] that did something to promote tho welfare cf thoe ] ground him (ioud apphiu e). > Cheers were then he,r:ily giver, for Mr Lloyd for 1 hts ntother, Mrs Lloyd, and MI*3 L!o.V(% after which Mr J S Owen, gardener, Ebag^at, sang an aj propriate Welsh c ;cngj the audience joining in chorus. c This portion of the proceedings over, the company idjourned to a tent, where, under the supervision of Mrs Williams, Ruthm Castle Garden-' Lodge, an old servant of the Berth family, choice refreshments of various kinds were served. In tho hali, also, a large cosupany were entertained under the supervision of Mr Hubbard, butler at Bmndon Lodge, the residence of the sister or Mrs Lloyd, and Mr Garratt- of Certh. In the tent vres a table containing a large collection of credent? given to Mr Lloyd in coro&ieinoration of the day. Amongst them were a beautiful cut-glass claret jurr, with silver appendages, by Colonel and Mrs Naylor Leyland; a writing case cf elegant design, by Mrs E. Llovd travellmg bag by Messrs R. and C. Birch; a walking stick, splendidly carved, by Mr Edwards, car- penter, Rhaggat; pocket book, by H. and Reginald Beech; fancy walking stick, silver mountings, by Miss Beech; fancy book markers, Ac., Miss Woodcock sets of handsome stud*, Mr and Mrs Henry Madock; two ancient pictures, Mr Roberts, Tynycolyn writing desk and inkstands, Miss Banker; fancy paper knife, silver mounted, Mr H.

During the afternoon, the stewards served out bread and beef, and bread and cheese and beer to all comers and the children of the schools previously named, and those from Ruthin union were provided with an excellent tea as quickly as the space at the disposal of the caterers would allow. On the lawn in front of the house a garden party was held, and where tea was served up to a vary large com- pany of the gentry present. Subsequently a field close liy was taken possession of by those having the manage- ment of the sports. These iucluded donkey races, wheelbarrow races, foot races at various distances, sack race, jumping, &c.. two or three prizes, ranging from 5s to 2s, being given in each competition. The pports caused much amusement. The stewards were Messrs Griffith Roberts, Tynycelyn J. Blake, Wern; John Griffiths, and W. Green, junr. This was followed by a scramble for nuts, apples, &c., and fun of a similar kind, the remaining amusements including a display of fire- works and the asceut of balloons in the evening. The band played on the green for dancine, cannons were fired, and au immense quantity of bunting was displayed. Several triumphal arches, with mottoes, wishing long life and happiness to the heir of Rhaggat and Berth. han bpen erected lit the entrance gates and oher aà- rantageons points on the leading to the hall. The bells of Ruthiu and Llanbedr rang out merry pCR1, and othsr modes adopted of celebra ing an event which was evidently regarded with great interest by a large section of per-ong.

THE AUSTRIAN OCCUPATION.
THE AUSTRIAN OCCUPATION. VIENNA, August 22. Both Servia and Montenegro are accused of partici- pation in the revolt. Private telegrams from Serajevo draw pictures of the death struggle in Serajevo on the taking of that place. The women are described as handling weapons fearlessly and rushing into the thick of the fight. No long range rifles are said to h'ave been used in the struggle. It was a close fight with sword, dagger, and revolver. Even the sick and wounded in the hopital crawled to the windows and fired. The flying men lying on the pavement used their teeth against the enemy with whom they got, in many in- stances, into a close and furious embrace. It is re- ported that Hadji Lodja himself was stationed on a minaret, fired thence, and commanded his followers. He was surrounded by praying dervishes, and was seen suddenly to disappear. Of his extortions the wildest stories are told.

Colonel Stanley, in acknowledging the toast of Her Majesty's Ministers," warmly defended the foreign policy of the Government, and pointed to the peace which had been 31 car 'd as a justifica- tion for the attitude they had observed in connec- tion with eastern affairs. He admitted that the cost. of placing the couutry in a position to back up its views had been great, but he urged that tho expense was a niere trifle to that which would have resulted from n. sanguinary and protracted European war.

BAZAAR.—On Saturday evening, a bazaar of fancy and useful articles was opened at the Sussex-street Lecture Hall in aid of the fund for the payment for the new orsran recently erected in the English Baptist Chapel. There were six stalls laden with very handsome articles of the usual description found on occasions of this kind. The stallkeepers were the Misses Hughes, Mrs Pierce, Mrs Taylor, the Misses Johnson (West Parade), Mrs Remington, refreshment; and a stall of Bibles and other books by Mr Howlse. The proceedings were opened by Mr John Roberts, M.P., it being his first visit to any of his constituents since his election. He professed him- self not very much in love with bazaars as a means of raising money for religious purposes, believing that the funds ought to be given willingly without resorting to such means. Having alluded to the beautiful display, he declared the bazaar open. The Rev. D. McGregor, in proposing thanks to Mr Robert", sead although Rhyl could not take part in the borough election recently, yet they lent what aid they coald towards Mr Robsrts's return. Mr James Taylor seconded the vote of thank", and the ladies then proceeded to the more interesting and profitable work of selling the articles. The bazaar remained open for six evenings. MEMORIAL STONES OF NEW WESLEYAN SCHOOLROOM. On Thursday afternoon there was a large gathering of persons to witness the laying of a number of memorial stcnes of a new schoolroom and vestry which is about being built adjoining the Wesleyan chapel and facing Morley-rcad. The proceedings were opened by the sing- ing of a hymn, reading of scripture by the Rev Mr Dod, and prayer by the Rev Dr.Gerviise Smith, of London. The first stone of the chief corner stones was laid by Mr John Roberts, M.P., who placed £25 on the stone. The second was laid by Mrs Jones, Olinda, lihyl, who gave £50. The next was laid by Mrs (Dr) Morley Puncheon, after whose husband the school is to be called Morley Schools in consequence of She very deep interest ho has taken in methodist work in Rhyl. Mrs Puncheon hav- ing laid the stone plsced The other stones were laid ns follows, each of the ladies we understand giving £25 each :—Mrs Dr Smith, London Mrs Field- ing, Rhvl Mrs Adam Dugdale, Burnley Mrs Fdfn- woith, Woolton Lodge, Liverpool Mrs Payne, Epworth Lodpe, Hhyl Mrs High field, Liscard and Mr* Brentnal for Mrs May, Cotham Paik, Bristol. In the intervals between the stone-laying Mr John Roberts, M.P. for the Flint Boroughs, addressed the meeting. Mr John Roberts having expressed tbe gratification he felt in being able to join them in laying the memorial stones of their new schools, referred to his exertions in support of Wesleyanism. He then expressed his gratifi- cation at the progress made by the Wesleyans in Hhvl. They had fine chapels, one for the Welsh and one for the English. They had a beautiful maase for their minister, and they were about completing the whele by erecting these schools, which he trusted would be worthy of the honoured name they bore, that of Mr Morley, one of the best and most liberal of Christian gentlemen (hear, hear). He was always struck by the completeness of the arrangements made by his friends the Wesleyans. It was said that the English people were foremost amongst nations for their colonising powers, and the Wesleyans, he thought, were also prominent amongst Christian churches for their colonising force. But lest a successful minister, like their friend Mr Payne, should become too proud of his achievements, or disposed to rest content with them, he would, on their system, soon after start off again, may be to enter on the good work affected by some equally energetic and successful brother per- haps to minister in some neglected district in which he must start afresh the woikingof building up and collect- ing and organisiningt After some observations on John Wesley Mr Roberts concluded with expressing the hope that the Wesleyan Methodists would, as heretofore, con- tinue in their blessed work, ministering to the religious wants of the great masses of the people, and take such a leading part as their position warranted in all great movements tending to the renewal of religious life and the fullest developement of religious liberty (applause). At tbe close of these proceedings the company ad- journed to the chapel where Dr Morley Puncheon ad. dressed them referring at some length to the great re- sults that may be achieved by the education given in that room just being commenced. He illustrated the great results obtained from small and apparently weak beginnings by referring to the fact that a book wrote by one of the Puritans irfluenced the Life of Richard Baxter, whose writings lead to the conversion of others, and thus the religious life of many celebrated persons was secured, many of whose writings such as Leigh Richmoad's Dairyman's Daughter had spread throughout the world. Thus, in that school, some young mind might be influenced who would become a great mission- ary and thus influence for good a whole colony. He be- sought aid for the completion of the work and paid a well-deserved tribute to the Rev F. Payne, through whose labours that fine block of buildings were erected. A collection being made, Mr Payne said that when he came some twelve years ago to the circuit they had no chapel, but now in Rhyl and Llandudno there buildings were worth £12.000, all paid but a few huudreds, and he should keep on begging until it was obtained (laughter). He then explained that a window had been placed in memory of the Lite Mr Wynn, Olinda, who had a gener- ous desire to assist in the erection of the chapel but died before being able. His intention was, ho NeVer, carried out by Mrs Jone", Olinda, his sister, who had also generously subscribed several sums towards their work, had again that day helped in the work and given liberally. Mra Jones then unveilud the window, one of beauiiful stained glas, which was greatly admired by ill. It contains an inscription at the bottom setting forth that it ;vas erected by the trustees of the chapel in memory of his great liberality. Subsequently a tea meeting was held in the Town ElalJ, and very largely attended, a very excellent tea was provided. At seven o'clock a public meeting wis held ,vhen addresses were delivered by tbe Rev F. Payne, 1ev F. Dodd, Rev Dr Mcilev Puncheon. R ;v Dr Gervase smith, London Mr Adim Dugdaie, J.P., Mr May, and ) >thers. The proceedings were cf a most successful ) ;haracter. e

Carpet was laid down from the street to the church. The altar table was beautifully decorated with flowers by the Misses Forshaw. A vast concourse of people had assembled to witness the impos- ing ceremony, many, who were unable to get inside the church waited patiently outside, and gave the bride and bridegroom a most enthusiastic reception on their ap- pearance after the ceremony. The intimate friends of the newly married pair were accommodated with chairs in the chancel. After the service was over the wedding party repaired to the Feanant, where a repast of the most recherche description had been laid out in a marquee specially erected, close to the house. About twenty eouple sit down to breakfast. The wedding presents were most costly and numerous.
