Song of the Seedling. Tell, little seedling, murmuring germ, Why are you joyful ? What do you sing ? Have you no fear that crawling thing, Him that has so many legs? and the worm? Raindrops patter above my head- Drip, drip, drip, To moisten the mould where my roots are fed- Sip, sip, sip. No thought have I of the legged thing, Of the worm no fear, When the goal is so near; Every moment my life has run, The livelong day I've not cease to sing I must reach the sun, the sun. V JOHN GRAY.
The Dove said,' Give us Peace.' One morning, oh so early, my beloved, my be- loved, All the birds were singing blithely, as if never they would cease; Twas a thrush'sang in my garden, Hear the story, hear the story I' And the lark sang,' Give us glory!' And the dove said, Give us peace I' Then I hearkened, oh! so early, my beloved, my beloved, To that murmur from the woodland of the dove, my dear. the dove; When the nightingale came after' Give us fame to sweeten duty!' i When the wren sang, Give us beauty 1' She made answer, Give us love Sweet is spring, and sweet the morning; my be- loved, my beloved; Now for us doth spring, doth morning, wait upon the year's increase, And my prayer goes up, Oh, give us, crowned in youth with marriage glory, Give for all our life's dear story, Give us love, and give us peace. JEAN INGELOW.

A Power of Waiting. To cultivate the most excellent quality, the power of "waiting." on which success in life generally depends, should be one of the prominent aims of education, and, of course, of seli-improve- lnEtnt:. True patience is not so much devoting due attenti«n to means and processes without losing sight of the end. Instead of lying down in feeble expectancy, the wise man works while he waits, and the enterprise in which he engages is in some ay made contributory to the purpose by which he is animated. He is not indifferent to the progress r, of time, or insensible of its tardy advance, but he shortens the scprninp- delay by filling with acts of Useful put pose, tending to the end in view, and pecupying the mind without exhausting it. the interval which must elapse before the fruition of hopes. Patience is an active rather than a passive Quality. It inspires with new energy, instead of ^8-sting that which it exeits. The notion of sitting still while waiting is the cause of many a disastrous failure. The really patient are busy, and, in place consuming strength, they devote it to progress, advancing the realisation of their desires and taking the way seem less long bv ernbpni-lnog it ^lth good and worthy exploits, which engross the ^plights and save the mind from the blighting Sects of disappointment and weariness. F. MORTIMER GRANVILLF.
A Romance of Derwenlas. BY "PHILIP SIDNEY." Derwenlas, a veritable deserted village, nestles in a quiet nook on the banks of river Dovey, at the foot of the Montgomeryshire hills, close to the boundary of the County of Cardigan. The traveller is at once struck by its old time look, and by the scenes of former industries, which were banished, once and for ever by the advent of the railway. The old deserted quay is a subject worthy the brush of a consummate artist. In former days, before it was hemmed in by the railway, this secluded little wharf, was in active touch with the great world outside. Here artisans busily plied their trade, commerce, and ship building flourished, and prosperity smiled on the hamlet. Here was built, in days of yore, many a sturdy boat, which sailed gracefully down the Dovey, be- fore the soul of the sailor was troubled by either steam horse or swing bridge. Here were built not only vessels for peaceful trade, but other boats also, built and manned by gallant hands, which secured peace by prepar- ing for war. Old seamen of Derwenlas knew well how to rough it on the rolling billow, and their boats, fur- nished with letters of marque, played no small part in many a stirring scene. But alas of these, there remains no record save the vague breath of tradi- tion, but fortunately the tale of one sturdy native is preserved and from documents now before me I am able to give it to my readers. Here then pursuing the even tenor of his way, there lived and died in the year 1816, good Thomas Jones, who had been a carpenter in the Royal Navy, and had served on board H.M.S. "Sirius," at the beginning of the nineteenth century. 11 y Thomas Jones, by his wife Jane, whose brother John Parry fought at Waterloo in 1815, had three sons, Thomas, John and Lewis. Son Thomas was a private in the 31st Regiment, which was stationed fat Fort Pitt, Chatham, in 1826, in which year he left with his regiment for India, where be shortly afterwards died. Prior to his departure he wrote a letter-now time worn and faded—to his widowed mother telling her that he had been 36 days in the hos- pital with the fever and ague but getting a great deal better." Then he goes on to ask his mother to send me my father's papers of the prize money due to him, and which had not been paid.'but* which the dutiful son was anxious, if possible, to claim for his mother before he went foreign." Here the matter seems to have ended for a time, Soldier Thomas died away in a strange land. In time the mother at Derwenlas passed to her silent home, and sons Lewis (d. (1852) and John, born some eight years before his father's death, grew up to manhood and carried on his father's business of block and isl)ar maker, ship's carpenter and the iike. In 1898 his son Thomas, (grandson of Sirius Jones), now a respected townsman of Aberyst- wyth, came across the identical prize money note, which" Soldier" Themas had been so anxious to present for payment ere leaving England. Up to the day of her death, in November 1854, the widowed mother, as she had frequently told her grandson Thomas, bad not received any of the prize money due to her husband, and she died under the impression that there must have been some mistake on the part of the Admiralty, or that her husband had been duped by some of the sharpers-who then preyed on men-of-wars men, in days when the sailors were less eared for and pro- tected than at present. In any case the stamped, original, and unpaid note now lies before me, and here is a copy of it:— Please to pay Mr Samuel Spencer Junr the prize money due to me for my servise on board his Majesty's Ship "Sirius." The Mark of Thos X. Jones, We do certifie that the above mark is the mark of Thomas Jones, and that he is one of this Parish, who served of his Majesty's Ship "Sirius," as per certificate; Maurice Anwyl, Minister of the parish of Towyn, Co. of Mer- ioneth, John Jones, and Hugh Cadwalader. Church Wardens. To Mr Agent appointed by the Officers and Ships Company at that time belonging to the Sirius." The account of the action on board H.M.S. Sirius," in which a Derwenlas man was engaged must have interest for all readers there and in Machynlleth, and is here given from a m.s. in the handwriting of Col. H. Davies-Evans, the Lord Lieutenant for the County of Cardigan, which he sent, in: 1898, to Mr Thomas Jones, of Aber- ystwytb, the holder of the prize money order. On 24 October, 1798, at 8 a.m. the frigate Sirius," 18 pounder, 36 gun, Captain Richard King sighted the Dutch ships of war Furie," 36 gun frigate, Captain Piety, and Waakzaamheid," 24 gun cor- vette, Captain Neirop. On making sail in chase the Dutch ships were observed to separate; at 9 a.m., having closed with the nearest vessel (the "Waakzaamheid,") the Sirius opened her fire, when the Dutch ship fired a lee gun, and hauled down her colours. Having taken, possession, removed the prisoners, 1 and puta prize crew on board, the Sirius crowded all sail in chase of the frigate, then nearly out of sight. At 5 p.m; the "Sirius" overtook the Ftirie," when a running fight ensued at close quarters for half an hour, when the hull and rigging of the I e "Furie," being much cut up by the heavy fire of the Sirius," she surrendered. The damage- to the Sirius was trifling,-a shot though her bowsprit, rigging and sails injured, and one man wounded by a musket ball. The Waakzaamheid was a corvette of 504 tons mounting 2& guns, long 8 pounders; her complement 122 soldiers, 222 men and boys. The Furie" was a frigate of 827 tons, 36 guns, long twelves and sixes. Her complement 165 soldiers, and 328 men and boys, of which she lost 8 men killed, and 14 wounded. The prizes contained 6000 stands of arms, the ordinance stores, which with the French troops on board, they were conveying to Ireland. Both ships were l>ought by the Government, and added to the English Navy. A dispute arose as to the distribution of prize money. Three sloops of war, escorting a convoy to the Westward were in sight when the chase be. gan, and claimed a share of the prize money. They took no part in the action, and were not in sight when the Furie" surrendered. Though it is hardly liKely any specie was on board the Dutch ships, they must have been valu- able, or they would not have been bought for the Navy. The head money for the captured soldiers and crews must have been considerable. It would be interesting to know the real reason if any. why Thomas Jones the builder of many ships at Derwenlas, and at Towyn, never re- ceived the .share of the prize money to which be was evidently entitled. Application to the Admiralty in 1898 only re- sulted in the polite and partly printed answer, to the effect that there is no prize money due in re- peat of the services of the late Thomas Jones." It seems certain that all prize money, after re- maining in distribution for 40 years is ab&olntelv forfeited under Section 28 of Order in Council of 5 1865. made pursuant to Act of Parliament 28 I and 29 Vic., Cap. 24. j As this power is retrospective, it would appear that the representatives of the honest Derwenlas shipbuilder cannot now legally recover any share of that money, for which they still hold the unpaid order. Be that as it may, the story is one of real inter- est to the district, if only to show in what honour- able service a Derwenlas man was engaged for his country, and how hard it seems that a cold Act of Parliament shuts the door on the final scene and successful issue of this Romance of Derwenlas.

In life it is difficult to say who does the most mischief—enemies with the worst intentions, or friends with the best. LORD LYTTON. People are are apt to confound mere alertness of mind with attention. The one is but the flying abroad of all the faculties to the open doors and windows of every passing rumour; the other is the concentration of every one of them in a single focus, as in the alchemist over his alembic at the moment of expected projection. Attention is the stuff that memory is made of, and memory is accumulated genius. LOWELL- +
Q Habits. Like flakes of snow that fall unperceived upon the earth, the seemingly unimportant events of life succeed one another, As the snow gathers together so are our habits formed no single flake that is added to the pile produces a sensible change no single action creates, however it may exhibit, a Plan's character; but as the tempest burls the avalanche down the mountain, and overwhelms he inhabitant and his habitation, so passion, act- 1n,; upon the elements of mischief, which pernici- ous habits have brought together by imperceptible aCcumulation, may overthrow the edifice of truth and virtue. JEREMY BKNTHAM.
Rich and Poor. I cannot call riches better than the baggage of virtue; the Roman word is better, impedimenta; for, as the baggage is to an army, so is riches to virtue; it cannot be spared and it cannot be left be- hind, but it binderetb the march; yea, and the tare of it sometimes loosetb, or disturbeth the yictory; of great riches there is no real use, except it be for distribution; the rest is but conceit. BACON. Great distresses are silent—penury depresses the spirit, as it emaciates the body. The modesty of fearful poverty is unwilling to accuse, and who can tay what numbers have sunk in uncomplaining silence to the "grave? Often have I seen the eloquent tear stand trembling in the eye of injured indigence, whilst the tongue made no complaint, "nd a smile of content has forced itself on the placid countenance. POTTER.
THE RECENT BURIAL SCANDAL AT NEWCASTLE EMLYN. SIR,-Togetber with the great majority of your readers I have been eagerly scanning your columns of the past fortnight in a vain attempt to find an official refutation of the recent burial fiasco at Newcastle Emlyn. Several letters have appeared in support of ''Plebian's" denouncement of the guardians, in reply to which the only argument (sic) brought forward has been the fallacious argumentum ad hominevi. Why did he not attend the funeral ? "—an argument which as "Plebian" explicitly showed is entirely beside the question. In your last week's issue there is an account of the fortnightly meeting of the Newcastle Emlyn Board of Guardians held on April 4th. No member is reported to have made the slightest mention of the fact that an aged pauper was recently conveyed to her last resting-place in a donkey-cart. Moreover not the slightest reference is made to the incrimin- ating letter of Plebian's which appeared on the 28th uit. Judging from the report, we are. forced inevitably to the conclusion that the guardians are guilty either of crass ignorance or of crass shame- lessness. For if one of the guardians present at the meeting had uttered some penitent remarks disagreeable and embarassing to his fellow-guard- ians, the official recorder and censor would not, forsooth, have vetoed the printing of the same.' Yet it is highly incredible that the active and intelligent guardians should neither have heard of the carting away of the remains nor have read the accusation levelled at them by a correspondent in the local paper. What inference, then, are we to draw from this blank silence but that they hope to soothe the public breast by treating the matter with a callous contempt and by assuming a cold, official, pseudo-dignity ? Without dwelling on the legal aspect of the question it will be evident to the most casual observer that the Guardians have shown by their inaction a spirit entirely foreign to the best traditions of the Welsh character—a character in which sympathy and tenderness play so prominent a part. It is now too late to rectify the blunder committed at the particular funeral which was brought before the public notice by Plebian," but it is not too late for the Guardians to take measures in order to prevent the recurrence of a similar mishap in the future. They have the pcwer in their hands and they ought to use it. The balance in the treasurer's hand increases from fortnightly meeting to fortnightly meeting. On the 4th inst., it stood at Z1904 2s 4d ( Vide report in the Welsh Gazette, April 18th). And yet the powers that be have been parsimonious enough to employ a donkey cart in performing the last rites over the mortal remains of one who had been entrusted to them as a sacred care by the over- confident public. In conclusion, if the Guardians will not offer an explanation of their conduct in this matter, but will seek to consign to the limbo of things forgotten Plebian's protest, then it will be the duty of the ratepayers of Newcastle Emlyn to bear the negligence in mind at the next election, and it may be confidently asserted that they will not be found wanting. Yours, &c., M.
REVIEW. With that courtesy and promptitude we have long associated with Mr J. Austin Jenkins, M.A., Secretary and Registrar of University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire, there reaches us, at his hands, a copy of its annual calendar for the eighteenth session, 1900- 1. From year to year, as the work of the College increases, so naturally does the Calendar, which this year consists of 404 pp., as against 365 pp in the previous volume. Carefulness, in fact and in figure, are visible on every page, whilst the type and general turn out of the book are evidence of that high class work for which the '• Western Mail" is proverbial. A not- able feature is the Almanac, with its useful memo- randa, and dates of prominent Welshmen's births and deaths. All concerned in the Calendar's pro- duction are to be congratulated upon its appear- ance.
