THE LEISURE HOUR. NOTICE.—This column is devoted to better thoughts for quiet moments. Can the wiles of Art, the grasp of Power, Snatch the rich relics of a well-spent hour ?

+. An Ode to Spring. Is it the Spring? Or are the birds all wrong V That play on flute and viol, A thousand strong, The minstrel galleries Of the long deep wood, Epiphanies Of bloom and bud. Grave minstrels those, Of deep responsive chant; But see how yonder goes. Dew-drunk, with giddy slant, Yon Shelley-lark, And hark! Him on the giddy brink Of pearly Heaven His fairy anvil clink. Or watch, in fancy, How the brimming note Falls, like a string of pearls From out his heavenly throat; Or like a fountain In Hesperides, Raining his silver rain, In gleam and chime, On backs of ivory girls- J Twice happy thyme 1 Ah, none of these May make it plain, No image we may seek Shall match the magic of his gurgling beak. And many a silly thing That bops and cheeps, And perks his tiny tail, ) And sidelong peeps, And flitters little wing. Seems in his consequential way To tell of Spring. The river warbles soft and runs With fuller curve and sleeker line, Though on the winter-blackened hedge Twigs of unbudding iron shine, And trampled still the river sedge. And 0 the sun I have no friend so generous as this sun "That comes to meet me with his big warm hands. And 0 the sky I There is no maid, how true, Is half so chaste j As the pure kiss of greening willow wands Against the intense pale blue Of this sweet boundless overarching waste. And see I-dear Heaven, bnt it is the Spring!— See yonder, yonder, by the river there, Long glittering pearly fingers flash Upon the warm bright air; Why, 'tis the heavenly palm, The Christian tree, Whose budding is a psalm Of natural piety; Soft silver notches up the smooth green stem- Ah, Spring must follow them, It is the Spring I 0 Spirit of Spring, Whose strange instinctive art Makes the bird sing, And brings the bud again 0 in my heart Take up thy heavenly reign, And from its deeps Draw out the hidden flower, And where it sleeps, Throughout the winter long, 0 sweet mysterious power, Awake the slothful song I RICHARD LE GALLIENNE.
Lowly Effort. The world moves along not merely by the gigantic shoves of its hero workers, but by the aggregate tiny pushes of every honest worker whatever. All men may give some tiny push or other, and feel that they are doing something for mankind. JOHN RICHARD GREEN.
Helpfulness. Next only to the man who achieves the greatest and most blessed deeds is he who, perhaps himself wholly incapable of such high work, is yet the first to help and encourage the genius of others. We often do more good by our sympathy than by our labours, and render to the world a more lasting service fey absence of jealousy and recognition of merit, than we could ever render bo the straining efforts of personal ambition. CANON FARRAR.
God and the Soul. If sunbeams are potent enough, in iheir noiseless operation, to give to our cold and desolate planet a new face, a new robe of beauty, and a new song; what must not God-beams be able to do for the receiving soul! Certainly the response of the dead earth to the influence of the dead sun, magical as that response is, must be a very tame affair, com- pared with the response which living and loving souls give to their living and loving God. O, if the soul could lie open to the forthcoming God, as does the bosom of the earth to the forthcoming sun! All our ice would dissolve, and become warm, operative, and full of life; our cold wintry e^yth would travail with a general birth; the seed which the Son of Man has sown therein would be quick- ened and bring forth thirty, sixty, and a hundred- fold. Wondrously powerful, but as wondrously silent, is the operation of the Divine Presence. When God works, surprising gentleness and irresist- ible power are in combination. Canst thou bind (restrain) the sweet influences of Pleiades 1 There is nothing like them for sweetness, yet they are omnipotent. Think of the large forest oak which one while stands before you apparently in stubborn desolation without one leaf of beauty, and a^min a little while he stands before you a new creature, adorned in golden green. The stern vegetable giant, embraced and penetrated by the sun's presence, is first pricked to the heart, then relents, the warm sap flows, and the outburst of its «olden mantle is the development of hidden, silent operations. Or. see the tiny blade, which has made it. way through many hindrances, out of darkness and corruption no motion was heard, no motion was seen. The earth grumbled not; earth and stones were in its way, yet the weak thing has prevailed to lift up its head towards the sun. Yes for Divine gentleness and power work there. The sweetest influences are the mightiest. Stand thou still in the midst of Nature's verdant temple, where the Great Power before thine eyes is working in profound quiet and heaWng, peace, and power %,ill embrace thee and come into the. Thou seest tnat the Beautiful Power hides itself in very unakelv forms, and secreilv works out its beautiful effects. I RE". JOH); PCLSFOKD.
The Book of Caron. BY, PHILIP SIDNEY." NO. II. Who was Mr Williams of Ystradlo,?' His name occurs in the records of the Vestry Hi held in October, 1792. when one of the church- wardens was ordered to go immediately to Mr Williams, of Ystradlo, for the Bible which he pro- vided for the use of the Church." r, It would be interesting to know something more of him, and whether the Bible thus provided was a gift or not. The conclusion is that the churchwarden thus hurried off to fetch the Bible did not return empty handed, else why, six months afterwards, was the Vestry turned into a shop and the old Church Bible sold ? Troubles arising from broken doors and windows called for attention, on 6 January, 1795, when it was agreed and determined that the Church- wardens shall, at the expense of the Parish, prose- cute the disorderly persons who broke the doors and windows of this church on the night of the 25th December last." Evidently the" disorderly persons" had been sampling not wisely but too well, the good Christ- mas ales of Tregaron. Three shillings a year was the cost of washing the Surplice," and coffins for the paupers were eight shillings a piece, for on 12 May, 1797, it was agreed that Griffith Griffiths shall and will wash the Surplice for the sum of three shillings for the ensuing year, and to make coffins for the paupers for eight shillings a piece When was the thatch finally removed from the Church roof ? That it was thatched-at least in part-is certain from the following entry :— On 25 June, 1805, It was agreed and John Thomas, slater for strip the south side of the Caron Church, and take care of the slats, and find the New slats and thatch the Church of New thatch at Is. Id per yard. The Welsh Circulating Charity School came in for well deserved attention in 1811, when, on 4 November the fact is preserved that We agree that the Welsh circulating charity school shall be kept in that part of the church -between the Pulpit and the door for a few weeks, and upon trial find- ing that a sufficient number of children do attend we agree to hire a house in the Town for that pur- pose. This Vestry has been legally proclaimed- M. Evans, vicar Daniel Jones, Griffith Griffiths, Thomas Jones. Jenkin Williams, and Mosses Thomas." Obtaining an estimate from a surgeon as to his terms for curing a patient is an uncommon method of procedure! Yet what else can we make of this entry ? On 13 Sept. 1833 it was agreed that the Over- seers should go to Mr David Rowlands, surgeon, and to have his terms as to what sum he will require for using his best means to cure William Roberts." X This contracting" with medical men to cure patients, however, was not a new method in Tre- garon where it had been vogue so far back as the year 1791, when at the Vestry, on 7 June, it was agreed to give the sum of £3 3 0 to W. Jones, Doctor, for curing of Mary Davies, pauper, if the said Mr Jones will cure the said Mary Davies for so much money, if not, there will be nothing due to him 1! This William Jones, surgeon," evidently had a bad time of it at the hands of the Vestry which agreed and determined (29 Nov. 1791) not to pay the Bill delivered to the Churchwardens by William Jones, surgeon, for attending Thomas Hopkins, and to answer the action that the said William Jones may enter on account of attending the said patient." The stocks and their erection are fully noted. So late as the year 1812 it was decided on 13th May that stocks should be built this year by Griffith Griffiths." Two years after, on 8th March 1814, it was "agreed with Thomas Davies, carpenter, for erecting a stocks of ,the following dimensions in the town of Tregaron, viz., Ports, 7t feet long each, and the planks to be 5 feet long, and an Iron plate over the upper planks and 2 pair of Iron cups by the side of the Ports, and also to be painted over, and the Timber to be a Heart of Oak for the sum of Three Guineas." Defence of commoners' rights was to the fore in 1816, when on 23rd April the Vestry unani- mously agreed that we shall not suffer any fence to be erected on the Common or Mountain opposite the parish of Caron in the County of Cardigan in order to enclose into field or fields any part thereof, and we do hereby unite in determination that we shall march in a body and demolish any such inclosue which may be made. William Rees, Churchwarden; John Morgan, Overseer; David Davies, Overseers, and others." It is but seldom any old records contain reference to the election of a woman to the office of church warden; but Tregaron was in advance of the times. in 1793, when Elinor Richards was appointed to serve the Office of Churchwarden," But Elinor refused to discharge the duties pertaining thereto, and, on 30 April, it was agreed that an action shall be brought against Elinor Richards for refusing to serve the Office of Church Warden as she was appointed thereunto." Thieves were punished at the expense of the parish in 1800, when the vestry solemnly record that We Lowed if We hold anny Thieves Was steal anny Things In Parish We are Willing to Punish the Thieves on the Expence of the Parish." Lawyer Lloyd of Mabus was known far and wide in the early part of last century for his extensive and correct legal acumen, and his decisions were as a rule, implicitly followed, in fact he often filled the offices of judge, jury and lawyer combined. That Caronites had respect for him is evident from the entry on 21 Fob., 1809, when the Vestry agreed to send over to Maybus to have Mr Lloyd's opinion concerning the late Trial in Anglesey County," and there and then appointed Evan Jones, Llwyngeris, and John Williams, Crynfry- buchan, and David Jones, Brynhawnant to go over." One entry more from this valuable book and I close it. At the end of the year 1833, it was actually agreed "to pay the sum of Five pounds to James James for keeping, cloathing, and washing of Wil- liam Roberts to the 25th of March next to commence the 25th December previously, and also to keep him confined from trespassing upon anyone by HANDCUFFING OR CHAINING." The entries in this book end with the year 1846. It is a volume of rare, and lasting interest, well preserved, and, with the registers, lies in the church safe. The other book of supreme importance in the collection here is the Great Register,' of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, which covers the period from 1653 to 1812. It consists of 92 vellum pages, 18! inches tall, by 8 inches broad, securely bound and hinged. The record of marriages begins with several celebrated before justices of the peace, and run much after this style :— A B. to C.D. before Henry Vaughan, Esq. being one of ve Justices of ye peace of ye sayd county, in ye presence of Daniel ap Evan, and David John."

BARMOUTH COUNTY INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL. SIR,-Last week a copy of the standing orders of this school was accidentally placed in my hand. Amongst other matters, it specifies that the first business at the May ordinary meeting is the appointment of a chairman and a vice-chairman tor the year. On enquiring I find that the present chairman has held this office since the school first was established, and that both these honours have fallen to Nonconformists, and they might not have fallen into better hands. Still these little honours should, by all means, be distributed irrespective of creed or denomination. It must be granted that the largest contributions towards the building and its maintenance have been subscribed by Noncon- formists, but would it not be a good and a wise policy on the part of the local managers to reverse matters a little and appoint two Conformists for the two chairs for this year. This might, to a certain extent, narrow the gap that now exists between parties, and thereby bring about a much- needed conciliation and co-operation, and the school, as a result, brought into a more thorough condition for work and usefulness.—Yours, &c., AN ADMIRER.
LIGHT RAILWAY TO ABERAYRON. THE BOUNCER'S FOLLY. SIR,-When the light railway commissioners visited Aberystwyth three years ago, a number of people from Aberayron went to the meeting lead by a man who gave a long speech on the project. When it was ultimately proposed that five years (when in the scheme) for completing the railway should be shortened to three years, the motion was passed. A term of three years was therefore inserted instead of five, and the man from Aber- ayron boasted in a South Wales paper of the good job he had done by getting the railway so quickly completed. He did not ask were the means ready tor the purpose, nor did he state what .vas in the term of five years to prevent the railway being completed even in three years. L250 is now wanted to.get back the lost two years, then thrown away by the gentleman of Aberayron. The same gentleman now states that Aberayron has sub- scribed E50 towards extending the three years to the original five, and that Llanon and other places should subscribe the £ 45, to make up E125. I wonder should Llanon assist to make straight the blunder committed by the people of Aberayron. As those people are very anxious and bold to lead and govern, they ought to carry out their own plans and subscribe this E125 to bridge over their own blunder.—Yours, etc., Llanon. GOMER.
Is it not a Scandal? THE BURIAL OF THE NEWCASTLE-EMLYN PAUPER. SIR,-I am gratified that there are others who deprecate the action of the Guardians in burying the paupers so disgracefully, and I feel that I owe a debt of gratitude to your correspondents X," "A voice from Teify's Bank," M," and even A friend of the pauper" for their replies to my letter which appeared in your issue of the 28tli ult, although the latter seems to vent a good deal of unnecessary spleen in slanging my passion," on the assumption that I did not attend the funeral. May it not be a case of the pot calling the kettle black," and is he not also verging on passion ? I feel that some of his remarks require notice. To commence with how does my critic know that I did not carry out my convictions and attend the funeral ? But I fear he goes further, and displays his real feelings when he says, I "might have spared my righteous indignation in words and utilized it in practical action." My friend forgets that even if the whole of the inhabitants of Newcastle Emlyn attended the funeral, it would not lessen the culpability of the Guardians. This is a strong word but nothing less forcible would express my feelings. Apparently by the tone of his letter, a friend of a pauper," considers that since the pauper in question had been a burden upon the rate-payers for a very very longtime (61 years), the Guardians are not required to give Christian's burial, and that we are well rid of her. This is the sentiment that really underlies his words in my humble opinion, and I am not alone in my judgment. What does it matter if it be 61 years or 61 days? Let the funeral cortege be a mile long, and still the donkey-cart with the poor body, in a coffin covered by a sheet remains. This is. what I feel so strongly upon. Does "a friend of the pauper" consider that attendance at a funeral is all that is required ? If so, he had better alter his "norn de plume," and if not, why does he lay stress on the people of Penbryn and Llangranog attending 1 Your correspondent M" speaks of the burial of the pauper as being little better than that of a dog. I know that for my own part the obsequies of my dumb companion would be per- formed at least as decently as possible. Far, far better would it be for our paupers to be buried in the pounds of the Union (which Heaven forfend I recommend), than that their status as paupers should be paraded before a disgusted and indignant public. In conclusion allow me to thank M for his statistics, and toadvise the Guardians and ratepayers (especially the latter) to study them again. Yours, &c., PLEBEIAN.
