My Dead. I cannot think of them as dead Who walk with me no more: Along the path of life I tread They have but gone before.

A Woman Beloved. BY PHILIP SIDNEY.' Yes truly, in all history, there has been no such Queen as ours-a, woman beloved of all her peoples, nor has any other Sovereign so touched the imagination and the affection of her subjects in many lands, with those noblest of all influences, personal character, and true human sym- pathies. It is impossible for us to estimate how great a part of the benefits of her reign, which make the Victorian Era, in spite of many shadows, the brightest that England-Merrie England-bas ever known, must be directly attributed to her. Certain is it that Tennyson's noble lines, quoted by us and a hundred other papers since her 'passing,' but written first, half a hundred years ago, with lofty aspiration, have received ample fulfil- ment in all that rested within the Queen's power, and to-day, more than ever before we can sing:— She wrought her people lasting good; Her Court was pure, her life serene, God gave her peace, her land reposed, A thousand claims to reverencc closed In her as Mother, Wife and Queen. And if this hope of peace was more than once sadly broken, and the closing year of her life was most unhappily darkened by a terrible war, we know that it was always against the Queen's will; and that the whole influence of her life made strenuously for peace. During the first twenty four years of her reign the Queen had the support of her mother's sym- pathy,. an(I the debt which this country owes to the 1hess of Kent ought never to be for- gott To this was 'added for neariy the whole of the same period, the strong support of her husband, Prince Consort who not only gave to her for twenty one happy years the supreme happiness of her life, but confirmed her in all noble purposes, and generous sympathies. What he was, the people only came to know fully after the Prince's death, but now as we look back j upon the Queen's reign our thankfulness for his life is also vividly remembered. On the fiftieth anniversary of her wedding her children gave to the Queen a Prayer-book, with the following inscription written by Tennyson:— Remembering him who waits thee far away, And with thee, Mother, taught us first to pray, Accept on this your golden bridal day, The Book of Prayer. And the Queen wrote to Tennyson, on the same day, 10th Febr. 1890 How kind it is of you to have written those beautiful lines, and to have sent the telegram for this ever dear day, which I will never allow to be considered a sad clay. The reflected light of the sun which has set still remains It is full of pathos, but also full of joyful gratitude, and be, who has left me nearly thirty years ago, surely blesses me still." The same true feeling breathed in her public messages and letters to the whole people, as on the occasion of her first Jubilee, and after the death of the Duke of Clarence, and not least in the brief message after the Jubilee of 1897" From my heart 1 thank my beloved people. May God bless them." Now that she is taken from us, that message seems to speak to us once more. and with a new depth of feeling. We may be happy in the thought that our Queen knew how profound was the loyal affection in which she was held by her people. For nearly 64 years she laboured steadily and truly at the work God gave her to do. She was not excused from the general law under which her people also had to live. Now the night has come and her work is over, so far as this world is concerned, and she has entered into her well earned rest. It :is as yet far, far too soon to attempt to estimate the value of her reign, the longest reign, and longest life of all the sovereigns of England. History, in years to come will try to do that, let us however endeavour to gather some practical lessons from her life. One point stands clearly out at the beginning as I great and more than ever needed object lesson for all, which we cannot miss. She has shewn us in her long life the value,—the high value, and the power of CHARACTER. Not only here in Great Britain where she was known in cottage as well as in mansion, but on the Continent and beyond throughout the whole world- wide Empire, there is but one voice of admiration for her character, that of A Woman beloved." Readers, we cannot all be Kings and Queens, Emperors and Empresses, or have world-wide duty imposed upon us, but we can bring that noble ebar- acter home to the hearts of every child in a real and practical way, as well as to every grown-up person throughout the land, in its simple element. The Queen's character implied surely that she lived in a sense of duty, and thank God for it, not merely in that of pleasure and frivolity. With all the great opportunities of position and of wealth, she might have spent days, weeks, months, years, in her own enjoyment of the highest kind of intellectual and scientific and artistic pleasure but that is not the way we think of her, or what has made her character become the great object lesson of admiration. No, it was the sense of duty, the doing just what she had to do day by day. Though there was trouble in so many ways, bitter sorrows-that she had to contend with the loss of her husband, whom all her life she mourned, yet in her widowed life on she worked. -She did. not give way, as sometimes people do even to a lawful and a legitimate grief. She fought and battled against it, held np bravely under it, and though there was this heavy weight upon her, yet sh. continued to the last, day by. day, step by step, in the pathway of stern duty. Many difficulties, many trials were hers, with which to deal, our country during her long reign has passed through many difficulties. The great War of the Crimea, and the terrible shocks of the Indian Mutiny, and the War we are still involved in on African Veldt; all these and other things pressed heavily upon her, and yet how steadily she trod the pathway of her daily duty I They go a long way to make the character that stands out before us as our object lesson, and they have received the admiration of a world-wide and a grateful Empire. Nor is this all; and by a long way. There was with the Queen that constant daily controlling of feelings, controlling of the natural and lawful wishes through a sense of duty, and with that there stands out also her intense kindness of heart, her thorough unselfishness, putting herself at the disposal of her people's good not looking or working to self, but thinking of others with a tenderness of heart that never got hardened, nor dull, nor insensitive. There was ever that womanly tenderness and freshness of sympathy always ready to manifest itself with loving practical wisdom whenever it was called upon to shew itself. If it was a shipwreck and terrible loss on the great sea, instantly there was a message from the Queen. If it was a colliery accident in South Wales, or away in the Northern Coalfields, and families suddenly lost the breadwinner or the headj of the family, at once there was the message of sympathy and the offer of help from the Queen. Wherever it was, whatever it was, there was unselfishness and tenderness and kindness of heart, together with the sense of duty. All these went in some degree to make up the character which stands out in such a wonderful way, and has commanded such respect throughout the world. What seemed to have regulated and balanced her life, in spite of all changes round about her, was not any particular intellectual gift, but a sound combination of head, heart, and conscience. On all the different occasions when she might have left her work undone, with a singular instinct she saw the right thing to do, with a tender and right feeling, yet ruling all by a sense of what was right, her conscience governing the whole. If, readers mine, we really love the memory of our Queen we shall try to follow her example, and form in ourselves and in others a character like that she has so powerfully set before us. Our Queen, I A woman beloved,' has left a legacy which, if we will only make use of it, will be most precious for the future of our country. VICTORIA. Great and Beloved I Throned not by human chance, But by that overmastering love that springs From a wide nation's chosen reverence, Our prayers are with thee; and our stricken hearts. Look down the vista of the golden years Crowned by thy purity and perfect good, Reading in all the everlasting will, The blessed purpose and the Hand of God. E. TESCHEMACHER.

HISTORY OF PFNEGOES. SIR,—I am greatly interested at the present moment in the past history of the parish of Pen- egoes, near Machynlleth, and I find that :its assoc- iations are of great interest to the historian. Amongst the many names of interest that are associated with it, I find Llywarch Hen, who resided for some time at Dolguog. Dolguog, subsequently, was closely associated with the Civil Wars. Tradition says that it was burnt down by Cromwell's soldiers about the same time as when they destroyed 14athafarn. Richard Wilson and Mrs Heman's connection with the Rectory is well- known. The principal residence in olden times was the Penrhos, which, at that time, was a large estate. One of its owners was Beddoe, a contemporary and patron of Lewys, Glyncotbi, to whom the bard has addressed several of his cywyddau." If any of your readers are interested in this subject could you, Mr Editor, open your columns to them so that the history of the parish may be collected. I know that there are many facts of great interest histor- ically in the possession of many of the parishioners, but they have never yet been recorded. Perhaps, this short note of mine may prevent their being entirely lost. EGOES." [We shall be delighted to publish any items of in- terest as suggested by our corresponden4-ED., THE DOLGELLEY FREE LIBRARY. Your correspondent Vox opens his letter with a note of joy at the resurrection from the suspended animation of the Library Authority. That such a body existed is only too true, but it was a body without soul or life in it. Legs it had, but it walked not, it was lame from its birth, hands it had, but they were withered hands, voice it had, but it never asserted itself in tones of authority or defined its projects in clear and emphatic terms. I agree with Vox that the new movement is beset with difficulties, but the committee would be unworthy of the confidence reposed in it, if it were to sue- cumb to these difficulties, but we have no sympathy with hatched difficulties. A huge stone llaid on the lines by a maniac would wreck a train and im- peril valuable lives, and many a beneficient move- ment has been thwarted by a broomstick held up with embroidered red tape on its summit, We hold that the difficulties that war with the progress of this movement, are for the most part, assumed and not real. The first essential in the advancement and ultimate triumph of the project is unity. If we are to achieve our desired ends and confer lasting good on our citizens, we must strive for unity, we must be of one mind, of one heart, and of one pocket. We strongly believe that the co broader scheme as advocated by the representa- tives of the young men on the committee, to be the only scheme that will meet the urgent require- ments of our town and neighbourhood, the scheme is broad inasmuch as it includes* within its range such innocent and skIlful games as draughts, chess and billiards." We cannot conceive that any pernicious consequence, would be the direct result of including billiards. Surely this—the most popular of indoor games, and so largely indulged in by men of religion, standing, and learning, could not have other than good effect on our young men when played within the precincts of a wholesome institution. In the conduct of the Library it is imperative that we shonld have a diligent care for the social as well as the intellectual aspact of the undertaking. Your correspondent states that the religious leaders of the town are not prepared to go so far as this." We are anxious to pay the greatest deference to the wishes of our religious leaders, but these gentlemen clamour on the housetops for tne downfall of the public house. What we, ask in all seriousness, and in the name and on behalf of our young men, are these religious leaders prepared to erect in place of the annihilated public house, to serve as counter attraction, what, we ask again, have they done in the past, in the direction of providing wholesome places of axnusemeut and instruction t Nothing has been attempted and nothing done. Our young men in their nocturnal parade from the bridge to the Market Hall sedulousiy guard our town from all invasion, What can they do f where can they got no social door is open to them save one. Will our religious leaders answer. A billiard table will not and cannot be a source of danger in the new Library, and those who say so are "straining at a gnat." There is a healthy tendency abroad to wed our social concerns witn thoso of our religioa, so that in the new-wedded life, the one with *be greater good may permeate and influence the other. The spirit of the new age is broad, and is braade.. ing, and in ito forward march it embraces phases of our social life, which some years ago it would disdain to countenance. It is the glorious light of a new day. This spirit was nobly conceived by the late Prof. Drummond, of imperishable memory a man who did so much, and probably more than any other man, for the social and religious wel- fare of the young men of England. Prof. Drummon4 recognised the utter futility of dis- carding innocent games, he himself being a skilful player of billiards, and he worked out the salvation of young men on the broader lines. The success of his magnificent work is told in the reformed lives of hundreds of young men who were brought under the sway of his magnetic personality. Let us put no diffieulties in the way of the pro- gress of this movement, but rather let us make a united effort to carry it to a isuccessful end. Let us give to it our instinted support and welcome it as .the :fulfilment of a desire long-felt and urgently needed. Yours, &c., A WELL-WISHSR.
Who was Rebecca ? SIR,Juding by the tone of the remarks of your able correspondent, Gordofig," in the- Welsh Gazette of the 24th inst., I fancy that I have un- wittingly committed, almost, I should think, an unpardonable sin, because I bad the audacity to question his infallibility relative to the person who took the most prominent part in connection with the Rebecca Riot. Nothing could have been further from my mind than to imply any impure motive, or to prefer a criminal charge against his immaculate character, which, in my opinion, has always been worthy of emulation. I did not even, by implication, prefer a charge against bim, but simply said that if it were possible I would sooner indict Gordofig than Mr H. Williams, because he was alive, with plenty of tact and ability to defend himself, whilst poor Mr Williams was in his grave, and consequently unable to offer any defence In your issue of the 22nd November last, Gordofig is reported as having written that the late Mr Hugh Williams "was no other than the veritable Rebecca herself," and that he ("Gordofig") was the authority for making that declaration known to the world," because be met him in London on the third morning after several of the South Wales Jgates were floored," and over that memorable breakfast table Mr Williams is repre- sented as having endorsed and corrected the Times report of the Rebecca Riot. I called upon him (" Gordofig") to prove his assertion, but instead of doing so he went about blowing his own trumpet, but at last he condescended to prove his own case, and his mode of procedure is sufficiently strange to create (surprises among angels. Regarding the behaviour of Mr Williams in the presence of the celebrated Bow-street Detectives, lirstlv may I ask who those officers were, and were they the relict of the old Bow-street runners, or the product of the Act 10, Geo. IV., c. 441 Does Gordofig convict every pale and nervous man that appears before him without any other evidence? If he does, I would strongly advise all pale faced people to keep away from Machynlleth when he sits in judgment Secondly, that Mr Williams came to Mach-ynlleth and concealed himself in his father's house. No, Sir; unhesitatingly I say that he never concealed himself, but he was taken ill once when on a visit to his father's house, and was confined to his bed for several days. Concealed indeed! What an absurd remark about such a brave warrior. Why. he appeared in court as an advocate on each occasion the rioters were tried, both at Petty Sessions and Assizes—held at Carmarthen and Cardiff, and could be arrested there if he was wanted. No, Sir, I again say with emphasis, he was never wanted by the Carmarthen police for any crime alleged to have been committed by him. Thirdly, that Mr Williams had made a verbal statement. Gor- dofig must know that such cannot be allowed by the rule of evidence; but in the event of his not knowing it, I respectfully beg to refer him to Section 6 of the Act 30 and 31, Vict. C 35. As to the long statement relating to Owain Glyndwr, Taliesin, Royal Commission, and Emperor Louis Napoleon, it might be interesting to some of your readers it they can be persuaded not to analyse it; otherwise, I would not venture to predict what effect it would have upon them. However, I must be very careful not to make noroffer any criticism on this wonderful piece of literary production or I may be landed in the Clock Tower." No, thank you, I am neither a solicitor or a justice of the peace. Neither can I boast of having any friends, either in the House of Lords or in the House of Commons; but I do know some parish councillors, and I have as much regard for those as Mr Gor- dofig" has for his noble friends in the upper region. As to my name, I respectfully beg to state that I have given the name I had with my parents; but as they are both, unfortunately, dead, Gor- dofig," according to his own dictum, may feel justified to blame me for that also. What an honour it would be if I could secure some other noted name from the B.D.B.Y.P., for I feel sure that I could then travel on the wings of imagination, and at the same time dispense with facts and dates. I have written some excellent poetry in com- memoration of special events, and in connection with the removal of magistrates from one county to another. Perhaps Gordofig," or some of his noble friends, would be kind enough to use their influence on my behalf with a view of attaining that elevated position in the literary world. Having already taken up considerable space, I must, never- theless, crave for your further indulgence to revert to my contention relative to the question at issue, and as your readers may not not now remember, I shall quote them briefly. Firstly, I contended that the freedom of turnpike roads in Wales was brought about by the Local Government Act, 1888. Gordofig," on the other hand, contends that it was not the instrument by which the freedom of turnpike gates in Wales was brought about, and that it only legalized the work of Mr Hugh Williams and condoned anything he might have done wrongly I Surely," Gordofig" does not expect your readers to believe such an assertion, because the Act does not even mention the name or deeds of Mr Williams in any way whatever. Secondly, I contended that there were four tollgates demolished in Carmarthenshire before Mr Williams removed from Machynlleth to St. Clears. Gor- dofig" even has not the audacity to deny that. Thirdly, I contended that Rebecca was always in command on horse back when gates were demolished. Gordofig thinks that there might have been a Rebeccaite officer in command, but not the real head Rebecca. If Gordofig knew anything he ought certainly to know that, because the head one could not be in Llanon, Llanelly, Llandeilo, Cardigan, &c., the same night, more than could General Roberts be present at all the engagements in South Africa. That, however, is not the question at issue, but who the first Rebecca was? And I again say Thomas Rees.' Fourthly, I contended that Mr Hugh Williams was never present at the demolition of any of the gates. With this Gordofig quibbles, but with a hope of satisfying him, I unhesitatingly say again he was never present. Fifthly, I contented that Mr Thomas Rees was the first Rebecca, but that many were appointed afterwards to take command of certain districts or sections, and to that I still adhere, while Hugh Williams looked after the legal branch. Gordofig" does not in any way deny this, but asserts that Thomas Rees had been dealt with before. With humble apology to my friend W Gordofig" for any ioffence I might have oommitted and if any words of mine have given him pain either in mind or body, nothing can give me more pleasure than to give them a complete and an unreserved retraction, because I would rather do almost anything than to be committed to the Tower." As I am a pale complexioned person, and subject to nervous debility, my chancy of acquittal would at once be doomed by "Gordofig's," keen and searching cross examination, Yours. &c., Aberystwyth, HYW.EL, 26th January, 1901.
