GARDENING FOR THIS WEEK. Preparations for those general favourites, the so-called Dutch bulbs, should now be begun. The snowdrops and crocuses come first, to tell us of the revivifying influences ft nature but to have them in good time preparations for their culture must be begun at once. The crocus has so many and such varieties of colour that it may be em- ployed with the best effect in many different ways. As ¡ an edging to beds of other bulbs it is exceedingly useful, and may be grown in a deep band of different colours, or one colour alone, according to the taste of the cultivator. The cultivation of this bright harbinger of spring is simple, in the extreme it will grow in any soil, but well repays care and attention by enhanced beauty. In the open ground, crocuses may be planted any time from September to December. The bulbs or corms should be placed three inches down in the soil, and two inches apart. One of the prettiest uses to which extensive planting of this bulb can be put is the disposing in clumps of a dozen or twenty on a lawn. Perking up through the tender green grass in early spring, the crocuses and snowdrops are especially beautiful, more particularly when the lawn is extensive, and a congenial home may be found for them at the tor.t of trees In town gardening the crocuses and snowdrops are in- valuable They grow so readily in any situation that they form quite a feature in window gardening, either indoors or out. • When required for the decoration of windows and rooms only, they should be lifted in clumps from the open ground just as they are coming into lfower, or they may be raised in boxes filled with some good light soil, and when the flower-buds are showing be shifted into pots, rustic stands, or baskets filled with cocoa-nut fibre and peat, covered wifh moss, or they will flower very well in moss alone provided there is a sufficient quantity and it is kept constantly moist. If the bulbs are started in boxes, it must be in a cool place. Both crocuses and snowdrops are very impatient of heat. In the open ground snowdrops should not be disturbed the longer they remain the better they flower, and the larger the clumps become. The same may be said of the crocus, with this exception, that it is better for being taken up and rc planted every fourth or fifth year. Of the different varieties of crocus, the self-colours—yellow, purple, and white—are doubtless most effective in masses or clumps in the garden, but the delicately pen- cilled sepals of the variegated varieties are quite as beautiful for growth in ornamental rustic baskets, pots, vases, &c., in the house. With, or even, sometimes before, the appearance of the Bnowdrop and the crocus in cultivated gardens our hedge- rows and fields are made gay by the blossoms of the little golden aconite, a rich and dazzling bit of colour amid the brown soil and lingering barrenness of the late winter, growing closely nestled to the bosom of mother earth, surrounded by a circle of dark, bright green foliage. These simple, easily-grown little plants well deserve to be transferred to the borders of any garden, either to form a pretty dwarf edging to other early spring subjects, or to form bright clumps of gold beneath the shelter of shrubs. Hyacinths, when judiciously and profusely planted, make a lfowr garden in themsel ves To eulogise their beauty or extol their sweetness would be as supereroga- tory as to paint the lily or add perfume to the violet. They always chami us; we watch their coming with interest and delight, and note their fading away with a sadness which finds its only solace in the thoughts of the hosts of bright Dowers which are coming crowding round us with the plenitude or summer. We shall continue the subject of bulbs next week. HINTS O.^ INSECTS.—The Gooseberry Caterpiliar.— The grubs of the Gooseberry saw-fly ( A ematus Ribesi) are often very troublesome. There is no more effectual method of keeping 11l1"hes free from them than removing the earth during the winter from under the trees to the depth of 2in. or 3in., and replacing it with soil from some other part of the garden. The earth taken away should be burnt or very carefully sifted, and then spread thinly over the ground, so that any cocoons which may have escaped notice during the sifting may fall a prey to the birds. Burn as soon as practicable all prunings from fruit trees, as there are often eggs laid on them. Lady- birds should never be killed, as their grubs are most valu- able in destroying aphides- All clear-winged insects which have a long sting-like organ protruding from the end of their bodies should be spared they belong to the family of ichneumons, and are of the greatest service in destroying caterpillars and gru bs. The little wooly egg- shaped bodies which may sometimes be found near a dead caterpillar should not be distil rbed, as they are.the cocoons of the insects. Toads should always be ercouraged in gardens, and all kinds nf hirrl? I'Iiuto ?-"f ?uienuht-y take ha\e mostly grubs in th.-?. Thoj nuber of caterpillars and grubs which birds (lesL?:oy during nesting season is incalculable, and it would be an I evil day for gardens in this country if the number of our birds was much diminished. THE. AND SIWeB A! tiTiLiATics'.—This is bad en -ugh TREE A?D SHM'B ￼ every year about Christmas time, and many near i rge towns have to deplore the or at lea"t mutiliati n of choice trees and shrubs about that season, but to encour- age inutiliation by offering special prizes for cut s mots, as at South Kensington the other day, seems to us most iinwise. It is doubtful if any good whatever can result from such exhibitions, even if confined to deciding trees, but when it comes to lopping off large boughs of choice conifers for the sake of a small monay prize it amounts to little short of vandalism. In one of the collecti ons shown the other day there were branches of Picea nobilis and of P. Nordmanmanna be?rin? several conil to cut which wli i e l i from the trees must neces?riiv have injured their appearance, i I appily, till this year the prizes offered for such exhibits have not been competed for, aud this vear but three collections were shown.

EMIGRATION TO NEW SOUTH WALES. Yesterday was the day appointed for the hiring out of the immigrants lately arrived by the vssel" Samuel Plimsoll." The total number of passengers who arrived by that ship was 407-viz., 64 married, 11.5 unmarried m?n 38 unmarried women, and 12i children under 12 years of age. Of the 3S un- married women all but four went to friends in the colony. Yesterday morning quite a crowd of ladies and a few gentlemen assembled at twelve o'clock in the Immigrants' flum-, Macqnarie Street, expecting that there would be many of the immigrants anxious to go to service, the ladies on their part bdhg no less anxions to secure, if possible, what appears to be in this colony as rare a treasnrc as the fabled,, r(,c's eg"- a good m'lid servant. For the four women waiting engagement there were no less than 103 applicants, and they were consequently speedily secured. The desire to obtain the services of the married couples and unmarried men was scarcely less grea* The variety of occupations which the men had hded was very great. Gardeners, agricul- tural labourers, and milkers were in demand, and tradesinon, such as carpenters and joiners, were no f?a ao'?ht after. The wages offered were ?uod ?U -oun l?

Almost without exception the- irnmigranta were healthy industiiou -looking oeople, tnd we were informed that from 3(; to 40 of the married and unmarried men showed to the irnmi- *raiion officer draits which they had in th-ir posses- sion upon the baaks in the colony for sums of money varrying from to £ 40, good testimony that the Agent-* General had been careful in his selection of the peopiu he Hent out to roa^e their future homo in our midst.—Sydney IJornmj IlcroM,
PEMBROKESHIRE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The annual dinner took place at three o'clock in the afternoon of Wednesday la-to The company, num- bering between sixty and seventy met at the Swan Hotel, where Mrs Einment supplied a really excellent dinner. Not only the eatables, but the waiting, table decorations, and everything that could promote the comfort of the guests were unexceptional. In the absence from home of Mr Lort Phillips, the president, the chair was occupied by Mr R. Carver, of Johnston, one of the vice-presidents, who was supported on the right by Lord Kensington, M.P., Rev. W. E. Aide, I and Capt. Higgon, Scolton, and on the left by Capt Baird, llobeston Hall, Mr C. E. G. Philipps, of Picton Castle and Mr R. Waters, of Sarnau. Mr J. M. Griffiths, Penally Court, who filled the vice- ahair, was supported by Mr William Davies, M.P., and Mr S. H. Owen, Cresborough. There were also present, Mr Richard Hart Harvey, Mr J. T. Fisher, Mr Thomas, Lochturfin, Mr Phillips, Honeybarough House; Mr E. Harries, Mr Francis, Scolton; Mr Thomas, Trehale Rev. \V. E, Haigh, Mr Llewellin, Haythog Mr John James (Secretary), Rev. W. M. Lewis, Tyllwyd; Mr Davies, Alleston MrGibby, Copybush Mr Griffiths, Windy- hill Mr Evans, Rudbaxton Mr Smith, Spittal; Mr Reynolds, Tierson Mr Scale, Ctpeston; Mr Morgan, Merlin's Bridge Mr G.

M. Phillips, Mr G. M. Phillips, jun., Mr Thomas, Trevelyn; Mr R. Lewis, Mr W. Williams, Market Street Mr H. Davies, Town Clerk Mr Reynolds, Treglemais &c. The President proposed the health of the Queen, which was heartily received. The President gave the toast of the Prince and Princess of Wales and the rest of the Royal Family, obsening that a few months ago the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh had paid the county a visit, and he felt sure they had carried away with them a deep impression of the loyalty of this part of the county. He hoped the day was not far di--t(nt when on some public occasion, such as the opening of the docks at Milford, they might have the pleasure of seeing His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. [ The toast was cordially pledged.] The President The next toast I have to bring to your notice is one which on the present occasion we shall drink with acclamation. It is the toast of the Army, and Navy, and Reserve Forces. (Applause.) At the present time we have an example in Egypt that the old prestige which always attached to the character of Englishineii-b(,th soldier.-i and sailors— has not by any means deteriorated. (Loud applause.) I hope and trust that the war may be of speedy solution, and that we shall soon be able to welcome them back again to this country. I beg to give you the health of the Army, Navy, aud Reserve Forces. [The toast was drunk with great heartiness.] The President then gave the health of the Bishop of the Diocese, and the Clergy of all Denominations. Rev. W. Haigh, (Chaplain of the High Sheriff): The remark which a gentleman has made is I think, quite right if the gentlemen who represent the Army and Navy will not respond to the toast, I think it is rather hard that we poor clergy should have to get upon our legs. (Laughter.) I suppose the rea- son why they will not do so is because they have not so much talking to do as we unfortunate men have. You, my friends, often laugh at the clergy, and I dare say you often think that we make great fools of our- selves, but I am certain, speaking of the whole body, that there is just as tine a set of fellows among the clergy of all denominations as is to be found among the Army and Navy. (Hear, hear.) I hope there is one thing which will never happen to England, and that is-the people of this great country will never look upon the clergy with contempt. It is a bad thing for any country that any section of the commu- nity should be looked down upon it is the right way to make them unworthy of your love and esteem. It has been said that the human race is divided into three great eleiiieilti,i-ne-,i, women, and ministers, (Laughter.) I hope that proverb, which I believe is American, will never be true of England, and that the clergy will always be worthy of your esteem. (Hear, hear.) It is not for me to speak of any political or religious matters. I heard a story of a young lady who sat dawn and wrote a letter to her father: she said—'My dear father, I write to you because I have nothing to do I stop now because I have nothing to say.' (Loud laughter.) With your kind permission, I thant: you very much for proposing our health I can't make a more heartfelt speech, for one generally feels more than he can express on these occasions, and I now stop because I have nothing to say. (Laughter and applause.) The Rev. W. M, Lewis, Tyllwyd, also responded in an able speech. Clergymen and ministers were supposed to know nothing of agriculture, but were believed to have some knowledge of higher things. In the years of depression through which they had passed, they had perhaps derived some benefit, and it was to be hoped they would take to heart that there was something better than agriculture. The President said that the next toast he had the pleasure of submitting to their notice, was one which ho felt sure they would all appreciate it was the I toast of the Lords Lieutena.nt of Pem- ?oamt oi-- the Lords, Li1q. u fheuounty on his right hand, and the Lord Lieutenant of Haverfordwest on his left, and he felt happy in being supported by them at that meeting. He hoped they would drink the toast with acclamation. Their friend on his right had especial claims upon their regard, for he had bought two remarkably fine specimens of their stock which he hoped in some time to come would figure in class I at Smithfield. (Hear, hear.) However that might be, he felt sure they would drink the health of the two Lords Lieutenant with all the honours. (Ap- piniise.) Lord Kensington Mr Chairman, Mr President and gentlemen,—I rise with much pleasure to return thanks for the toast which has been proposed by our President, and for the cordial manner in which it has been received by you. I use no common platitude when I say it gives me great pleasure to be here. I ain al ways very glad to be present on these occasions. Our President has referred to the purchase I have made of a couple of animals, which I hope on some future occasion will do credit to our county. So far as my experience goes, and I am borne out in my view by gentlemen who are much more able to judge than I am, I believe they will become good animals, and will do credit to Pembrokeshire. I did embark once before in the same line, and sent one animal which took a second prize. I hope this time I shall get a first. (Hear, hear.) I am glad to be able to exhibit, they have no chance of going this year, but if all goes well they will be ready to go to Smithfield next year. I can only say I shall be glad to send any Pembrokeshire animal I can which could do credit to our county. Lord Cawdor has often talked to me about it in London, and has always been at me to send up animals again. On the one or two occasions on which animals have taken the prize they were not not really Welsh animals, and I don't think they would have taken a prize at any of our fat shows at Haverfordwest or Narberth. The Welsh cattle are capable of great development, and what we have seen to-day are worthy of being exhibited at any show in the country. Now gentlemen, at the risk of being considered tedious, and at the risk of being considered a bore. I .wish to say a few words on an old sub- ject it is an old matter which has been before the club long ago, and has been picked up again on two or three occasions. It was started aarain the other Hsu (- -J, and there are a couple of gentlemen who feel a strong interest in it. We have gone into it a little, quietly, and one gentleman I see at the end of the table has gone into it a more fuily than any of us. I think it only wnnts one strong pull to carry it through. I re- fer to the old idea of having a central show for the county. To-day we have seen in our show yard most excellent specimens of animals. The quality was ex- ceedingly good, but we should all have been glad to have seen a larger quantity of them. (Applause.) There are several reasons why we could not have it In the first place, this day has been one of the very few fine days we have bad for some time, and I have no doubt that a good many people had to remain at home to gather in the harvest they could not spare time to send in their stock to the show yard. There is another reason, which is most patent to every one, an d that is that the value of the prizes is not remu- ueraLive to exnioicors wno come nere, and if it were not for their patriotism, we should have very few animals exhibited. No one can expect that the small funds at the disposal of the committee can possibly even the fair expense that many people must incur in sending their animals to our show yard. (Hear hear.) By increasing the value of the prizes, we should have a greater number of stock exhibited at this show. If there was a central show, and when I say a central show, I do not wish it in any way to cut down a district or local show: I believe they will be good feeders for a central show but if we carry out the scheme in our heads for a central show, the prizes would be of such a class for successful exhibi- tors that even the winner of a third prize would not go away a loser so far as regards the expense and trouble he has been put to in sending animals to the show. I am really very hopeful of this scheme: although the subject was ventilated about two years ago, and a committee formed, of which my friend Mr Baird was one, and a certain amount of cold water was thrown over it from the different district, yet I think the feeling is altered very much with regard to it. We must recognise tlif-, feelill- of the people of Castlemartin they must be considered; tlioy have good snows ot tboir own, and they hnvo a. farmer's club, and their things are better organised and mnrc fully carried out than ours. But I hope they will join us in this scheme. There are several who enter- tain the same views, and if they will only ventilate the matter among their friends and neighbours, I f-el convinced that the thing on be carried out. Tho suggestion of Mr Phillips was a very good idea: he mentioned in conversation that the thing requires to be started; aud let us walk before we attempt to run let us make it biennial which would be a start to begin with; we have to look at tho question as a matter of expense, and the whole thing resolves itself into a matter of pounds, shillings and pence. If we get up the funds, we should be ready to make a start. I think if our energetic secretary, Mr James will only communicate with the secretaries of the other shows—Pembroke, Narberth, and Fishguard, we could find out what amount of money might be expected to be obtained from the different districts. Thou we should bo able to see whether we could ? embark upon it. I do not see why it should be a j failure the great question is this we can show we I have a net egg, and there are plenty of people who would be willing to give-some a large and some a small sum, everyone according to his means-for the support of a good show. I have no wish to become tedious, but people may say-" it is no use harping upon this it has been tried you can't do it." But I think you can do it, if yoa really try, aud I don't see that you can know how the thing is to be sup- ported until it has been talked about and fully dis- cussed. If Mr James will only allow me to say so, I shall be glad if he will give us his experience if he will spare us an hour or so he can give us valuable information. 1 think without any chance of a refusal, I can make a request to my friend, Mr Philipps, to come and talk the matter over, and see what we can do. (Hear, hear.) I will say no more I said at the beginning I should bring this matter before you at the risk of being considered a bore. I am obliged to you for your kind attention, and I assure you I don't mean to rest until I have doue my very best to start the matter (Loud applause.) Mr C. E. G. Philipps I have very great pleasure in adding a few words to those which Lord Kensington has spoken on this very important subject of a central show; but before doing so, I wish to thank you, and I do so from the bottom of my heart, for the cordial manner in which the toast of my health, as Lord Lieutenant of this ancient borough, has been received. I feel very highly honoured in being Lord Lieutenant of Haverfordwest, which is the only town which possesses that honour, and I think Haverfordwest can hold up its head high in con- sideration of the very exceptional privileges it has had. My friend, Lord Kensington, hasrefered with great ex- plioitness and clearness to one of the most important matters to this county, which I think is now an agri- cultural county, pure and simple. We hope to see commerce greatly extended from the works now going on but we must keep our agriculture on its legs and while we look forward to the great advantages to be derived from the Milford Docks and the developement of other parts of the county, we must see that agri- culture shall always hold that pre-eminence which it de- servesin the county of Pembroke (applause). There is one reason which I would add to the very lucid reasons which Lord Kensington has mentioned on behalf of the show. It has struck me more than once that if we had a large show, the large exhibitors would send their best stock from all parts of the county, and perhaps even from the confines outside the county. A great number of persons would come to see the show, and many of the great makers of agricultural imple- ments would be glad to send their implements for us to see. In these days very few arts have progressed with greater speed than that of the implementmaker. \Ve have heard a good deal of the machines for saving hay and corn, and a number of men, large farmers such as we have around us, and small farmers like myself, are most anxious to see these machines in actual working order. If we had a large exhibition, there is no doubt the great implement makers would send down their best machines with experienced men to show and explain their working. So far am I convineed of the advantage of trying this sort of machines in this county, that although a very small farmer, I have invested in the purchase of one of the exhaust machines for hay and corn. If it succeeds, I shall be most happy to show it, if any one likes to come to Picton to see it and to take hints from it (hear. hear). If we have a larce show. it would be very important to this county it would be of impor- tance in bringing together cattle from all parts of the county, and we should see a great r number of good animals which would win honour for the county at laige (applause). I thank you again for the warm manner in which you have received the toast, and I congratulate you upon having had a magniticient day, and I trust that there will be a continuance of title weather to enable you to gather in the harvest (loud applause). The President proposed the health of the members for the county and the boroughs of the county. The mem bers for the county and for the Haverfordwest boroughs were present, and ho regretted that the member for Pembroke was not amongst them. He feltpretiyconfident that thememberfor Pembroke was not in the county, or that he had some important matters which prevented his coming, for he had always been a staunch supporter of the Society (hear, hear). He felt sure they would receive. the toast with great cordiality for very wisely they never introduced politics on these occasions. Mr W. Davies, M.P.: I hope my Lord Kensington will take precedence in returning thanks for this toast. Lord Kensington Go on: you are on your legs. Mr Davies I am very thankful to you, Mr Presi- dent, for having proposed the toast, and I am obliged to you, gentlemen, for the kind way in which you have received it. It would ill become me to make any lengthened observations at this moment, for I know you are all waiting to hear the opinion of the judges on the beautiful stock we have seen to-day. I intended merely to thank you for the honour done me, but I will make one observation. I have been accustomed to attend these shows, but I do not be- lieve I have ever seen such a line show of Black cattle as we have had to-day (Hear, hear). I believe that statement will be confirmed by many gentlemen who are more capable of judging than I am. That is very gratifying, because we depend mainly on black cattle in this county, as they are more suitable to the climate of the county. Looking at the bulls, I was ?H?Ltf? t-r. ?r).<-? -? -D? \w A.?<??a.;tj? Mr Harries. Mr tfarri?a produced a magnificent bull, but Mr Davies's was the better one. We are deeply indebted to Lord Cawdor for the interest he has taken in this matter. He has shown black cattle of a superior character I understood he had at one time held different views, and that he had been converted, and has become a breeder of black cattle. He has exhibited fine black cattle, and that I think is very gratifying. With regard to the cows, they were well worthy attention and the heifers were splen- did. All this zoes to confirm thA VIAWR Pnf.ArtAinnl 1.n .J -.8-01 "J,l U] you, Mr President, and a number of other gentlemen on this matter, but I should like to see a larger show. Looking at the prizes given at present and the prizes which have been give for years past, I think they are not sufficient inducement to persons to show at the meetings. I believe every exhibitor is a loser. I do not think that should be so. I think the gentlemen of this county onght to come out, will come out, and are prepared to come out with heavy amounts: we have a large number of wealthy farmers, who will give, and I think we should be able to make up a a fund of £.500 for prizes to start a central sho.v (Applause). We have a scheme that will be submitted to this meeting by my friend, the Vice-president. I have looked at it with great pleasure, and the only fault I have to find with it is that the prizes for particular classes are not quite high euoHgh. I would suggest that the first prizes in the principal classes should be higher, and the second and third not quite so high. I hope and trust that this matter which has been broached by Lord Kensington and a number of other gentlemen, will be considered. I hope the scheme for having this large show will not end in mere talk, and we shall have a practical proof of it when it is brought before us presently, and I believe it will enlist the sympathies of all present. I mysolf will contribute, and two or three other gentlemen, Lord Kensington, and Mr Phillips, of Pieton Castle, have promised large sums there are other gentlemen who are quite prepared to contribute large suras as well. If we could make up a sum of X500 which would be necessary, wu could start this next year and have a grand show. I don't wish it to be supposed that we should forsake the district shows we should have a show at Narberth, Fishguard, Haverfordwest, Pembroke, and St David's, if possible, but we should have one good show heli in turn in thA ,lifT"t '4'&11. v".I. places. I don't wish to be considered selfish in naming my own town, but We should commence at Haverfordwest as the county town, hold it another ynar at Pembroke, and another year at Narberth. We should not be able to reach Fishguard, for want of a railway, but we can have the show at the places named. We have very few exhibitors from Fishguard and very few from St. David's. We are indebted to Mr Thomas, of Trebover, Lord Kensington's tenant, for sending stock-[A Voice He has nothing here.] —I thought he was an exhibitor; at any rate, we have very few from Fishguard-[A Voice None at alI.J-I should like to see the Fishguard farmers come down here, and beat Mr Davies, although I am de- lighted he has won to-day. I should like to see our friends from Fishguard coming down here. They have magnificent stock at St. David's, which I should ilso like to see here. With regard to the show at Smithfield, I saw that, and I am sure if PembrnVo- shire cattle had been sent up from one or two places I know, they would have taken a prize against those that were exhibited. Next year, gentlemen, I hope we shall havo a county show-a show that will attract people from other counties, and if we have a good central show, I am sure we hll not be beaten by Carmarthenshire, Cardiganshire, or Brecoushire. (Loud Applause.) Lord Kensington said he had just trespassed upon their attention at great length, and he should not trouble them with any observations. So long as he was the representative of the Boroughs, he should endeavour to do his duty. It was a most excellent rule which excluded politics from their meetings. When the political battle was fought, they fought like men, but when that time was past, whatever their views might be, there was one stand point upon which they all cordially agreed, and that was that every man should do his best for his county. (Applause.) The President proposed the health of the judges, observiug that they all felt deeply indebted to those gentlemen for unde) taking the trouble and the duty which he might say was of an invidious nature. He teit great pleasure in proposing their healths. Mr R. Waters said he felt flattered by the -way in which tho toast had been proposed and drunk, and he assured them he felt it a pleasure to be among- them that day. He had been there on many occasions be- fore that day, and he always felt it pleasant to attend their show. Ho thought "it was the duty of all of them who wished well to agriculture to do what they could on these occasions, whether as judge or in any other capacity, to promote the success of these shows (applause). There could be nothing more indispen- sable to the success of a show than the proper fulfil- ment of the duties of a judge, aud these duties were not at all times agreeable. He saw around him so many who had at one time or another acted in that otipacity that he was sare they would understand the difficnlty of deciding between the merits of a large lot of animals in a short time and in a public yard where every one had an opinion of his own (hear, I hear, and applause). He had made a few remarks on the horses which he would give them, and in doing so he would bear in mind that the judges were sup- ¡ posed to speak what they thought and felt. He took it that they were asked to come there not for the purpose of flattering them and shutting their eyes to the defects they might observe, but to tell the truth and suggest where improvement was necessary (hear, hear). Taking that view he must at the outset can- didly confess that he was somewhat disappointed with the show of horses. He did not mean that the show was one which would not be creditable in some other places, but to be very candid he must say it did not all come up to his expectations of what ought to be seen in the heart of a district so celebrated for the production of horses and horsemen of all kinds. In short, he did not think the horses were as good as could be produced in Pembrokeshire. There were eome old friends of theirs among them that he bad made remarks on a few years ago. In the judging of the mares, he and his friend had some discussion, and after some difficulty they decided to give the prize to a cart mare which did not, in his opinion, come up to the reauirements of a great countv show. She was a big one, and though not quite satisfied with the mare, they agreed that she was worthy of the prize. The foals were good, but hardly such as they ought to be able to bring into the yard at a show of that society. The cart colts were good, and the prize animals exceptionally so, but there was nothing very remarkable, he thought, in the others. There were a few very nice yearling colts, but there should have been more of them. He must confess that he was also disappointed in the hunter classes. In the three- year-old class for animals best calculated to make a hunter there were two pretty good onos,"a mare"and a colt. The mare was fairly good, but the colt was not remarkable, and by no means such as the judges thought Pembrokeshire could produce. They weie told he had got into the wires, but he never knew of a case where an animal that was broken kneed had not fallen or had some accident (laughter). When they came to the two-year-olds there they had some animals of note. They had, among others, the two- year-old colt that won the prize at Carmarthen in the same class. He was a grand specimen of a horse, and there could be little doubt that in the future he would do justice to the prizes that had been awarded to him. There was nothing *very remarkable, as compared with him, in the remainder of the class. He stood forth well ahead of all competitors. There were two first class yearlings showing breed and quality in a marked degree. The first was an excellent colt, and one that was likely to do exceedingly well in the future. The second one was handsome and full of quality, but the judges observed one little defect in this animal. He did not pass such things over with- out notice, as he knew the judges were there to pass an honest opinion and not to flatter them. The second prize one, though full of quality, was defec- tive in his feet. He had no hesitation in saying that. He could not praise the roadsters. He had been con- fined to judging the horses, sheep, and pigs, but he had an opportunity of looking over the black cattle as well, and he need not say that he, like everyone else in the yard, was delighted with the quality of the black cattle. Such animals he had never seen collected together (applause). The sheep also were really a credit to the county. The short-wool sheep were in nearly all cases excellent, and of the long- wools, which were fairly good, he need not say much, as there was only one flock. He thought, at least, that those which carried off all the first prizes be- longed to one exhibitor. In pigs they gave the prize to an animal which was large in size, good in quality, and accompanied by a very prolific litter. There was a pig brought there in a sort of caravan, and the turn-out looked very imposing, but the judges in their plain matter-of-fact way, decided that the other pig was better, and the fact of a pig being brought a long way in a caravan failed to make an impression on them (laughter and applause). The exhibitor or the man in charge appeared to think they must be great fools, and he did not fail to express his strong sense of their fatuity before they were out of hearing. That was just one specimen of what men must make up their minds to undergo whenever they consented to act as judges. For himself and his brother judges he did not claim entire immunity from mistakes he only said that they did their best, and possibly they were in some cases wrong. They had a good example of this lately at a well-known hunters' show not far off, where great mistakes were made. He thought the public generally were agreed that some of the deci- sions were unquestionably great mistakes. But these mistakes were made by judges of acknowledged re- pute, and if they erred it was not suprising that he and Mr Flutter should sometimes fall into a mistake Mr Harries, Llandilo-Abercowin, said he had been in hopes that the gentleman who was associated with him as judge and was his senior would have spoken for both. For himself he always felt rather nervous about standing on his legs, (laughter), and they would excuse him if he did not speak so eloquently as the others. However, lie might say a few words with regard to the black stock. Taking all classes together, the blacks, as Mr Waters had said, were the best lot he had ever seen, (loud applause). He did not take any notes, but he might say a few words on the different classes from memory. The class for the best bull in the yard was a good one, and as they knew he and Mr Harries (of Penwch) decided that the yearling was the best. He was a young bull that was almost perfect in his points with few exceptions. He might be a little bit better in the touch, and per- haps a trifle better in the coat, but otherwise he was wonderfully good. He did not think he ever saw a I bo.tt^ V vkind.^ha one, but they thought him rather low in the back. The two remaining bulls were very good indeed, but not equal to the two he had mentioned. In the yearling class they had an easy task to pick out the best, but some of the others were also very good and well-bred, such as he would himself be glad to be the owner of. Next came the ,steers, and he was very proud to hear that Lord Kensington had purchased the best steers that were there, and intended to do his best with them and show them at Smithfield, (hear, hear). They were certainly a great credit to the show there that day. Tn the next class they had perhaps the tightest competiti on they ever had there. He thought that in two or three stalls there they saw animals that were one about as good as the others Mr Harries and he decided in favour of the two that were most even, and those they selected were rather smaller than the second prize animals, but if it had been allowable they would have taken one from the second and one from the third. However, they bad judge them in pairs as they stood, and they had done their best to do justice by select- ing those which they believed would be the best in the long run. Then they came to the cows, which were really a good class also. The first prize one, the Posty cow, was a grand old animal, and had been taking prizes all over this part of the country for many years. However, she was on this occasion very close run by one or two, or perhaps three, other cows, and perhaps the judges might not have been right in placing her first, but they believed they were, and they had not decided before being sure that they had pleased themselves (applause). For the first prize in two-year-old heifers they soon came to a decision, but the competition for the second prize was very close. The second prize heifer was a grand one, and would make a fine big cow. One that was very highly com- mended was rather low in the back, but he believed she would make a very handsome cow. Two or three of the others were highly commended, and in fact there was not a bad one in the class (hear, hear). The yearlings again were a credit to the show. He did not believe he ever saw better yearling heifers, and it was a toss-up between a couple of them which was best. He could not tell, aud left it to his friend. They at last agreed to give first prize to the biggest, but he believed the other was still better in one or two respects, especially in the fore ouarters. hnt. it was not so good -behind. There were other heifers in the class which he considered very good. The bull calves were also extremely good. He and his friend split there, and they were obliged to call in Mr Waters, who gave his voice in favour of the long- coated ono. Again, for tho best beast in the yard they could not decide, but having called in Mr W aters aud Mr Flutter, the majority went in favour of the cow. Mr Cash also returned thanks, and said he felt with Mr Waters that, while they were iu an invidious position, still it was their duty as judges to be very truthful and explicit about the defects as well as the merits of what came under their observation. They came down there at the request of the society to say what they thought, and he was sure no good man would think the worse of them for being candid (applause). As far as ho was a judge, he quite agreed with all that had been said of the black cattle, but hd was sorry to say that, unlike them, the butter hao not been a good show this year. That the exhibition of butter should be so small was, he might almost say, a reproach to the great agricultural county of Pembroke. It was not worthy of the farmers of the large and im- portant district that was represented there. It was not worth while to travel 160 odd miles to judge some fourteen or fifteen samples of butter, and the work might have been equally well done, he thought, by some one living thirty or forty miles away. ("No, no'') ?, I I No, ) iN or couia ne noneswy congratulate them on the qual- ity of the butter. There was no condition enabling him to withhold prizes when the exhibits did not show sufficient merit, and so he gave prizes in some cases where they were hardly deserved. The wet season they had gone through accounted in some degree, he supposed, for the deterioration in the butter, but cer. tainly it was not such as would reflect credit on the farming interest on that district as regarded this one article. Two or three exhibits, he must say, were unexceptionable, and almost as good as any he had seen there in former years, If they were all spared for another year, and if they increased the size of the association in the way he had heard suggested that day by Lord 1 Kensington, he supposed they would iiave a mticn iarger numoer ot exhibits, and by all analogy some of better quality (applause). Mr tohu James, the very energetic and efficient secretary, rose, at the req uest of the chairman, and read the list of prizes, which, with the following ex- ceptions, appeared in last week's Teleyraph:— Pen of five short-wooled two-year-old or aged ewes --1st (given by Charles Mathias, Esq., Rhysgwyllt), Mr R. Davies, Newton. Highly commended, Earl Cawdor, Stackpole Court. Pen of fivo short-wooled ewe lambs-1st" Mr R. Davies, Newton 2nd, ditto. Pen of five long- wooled ewe lambs-Ist, Mr George Ormond, Williamston. Long- woollcd ram la.b-lst (given by R. II. Har- vey, Esq.), Mr R. Davies, Newton 2nd (given by ditto), ditto. Highly commanded, Mr R. Davies. The Vice-President proposed the lioiltli of the President, who had conducted the business of the meeting in an admirable manner. The President had not made his speeches too long, but had carried out j the work of the evening in a business-like manner, which deserved their best thauks. Referring to the proposal for a central show, he had submitted merely a list, to give an idea of what was required. He sug- gested that a committee of three members from each district should be formed to advise upon the best means of getting up the money required for the pur- pose. He would also advise them on the drawing up of the prize list and the amount to be offered in prizes for the various classes. As the only train by which he could return home that night would start in ten minutes, he would not keep them any longer, but ask them to drink the Chairman's health heartily. The President (who was received with hearty cheering) said I am very much obliged to you for drinking my health on this occasion. I assure you that when I came here I had no idea that I should have been called upon to take so prominent a position in this meeting, and I regret extremely that we have not had Mr Lort Philipps here, for I am sure he would have carried out the duties in a better manner than I possibly could. With regard to the show, I have no doubt myself, looking at many features of it, that it is the best we have seen in Haverfordwest. (Ap- plauso.) We hear remarks about the judging on these occasions but I can say that I did what I have very often done on such occasions :—I have tested the quality of the prize animals, and invariably when I have done so, they certainly so far as quality is con- cerned stood in a very high category. (Hear, hear.) I shall say nothing more on that subject, but I may be allowed to express the hope that we are inaugurat- ing a better series of years than we have lately gone through. It is all very well to meet on these occa- sions, and to drink healths and to congratulate the successful and encourage the unsuccessful competitors, but it must be patent to all in this room that we have been going through a very critical era in farming (hear, hear.) I think I may say that probably, as far as my recollection goes, we have never had such diffi- cult times to contend with as we have had during the last six or seven years (hear, hear.) I believe they are entirely attributable to the adverse seasons which we have had for the last four or five years. We have I • J_I. J I J .3: I I -=-_¿.1 ueeu iiiuimaLeu uy rain, aiiu uisstsast? Lias aecuuittcu out sheep flocks, and I have no doubt there are num- bers of small farmers who have not got over the losses of those years. But we must look to the future and I hope and trust we have seen the worst of it. So far as the harvest has gone we have not had much to congratulate ourselves upon to-day promises better things, and I hope a great deal of mischief has not been done up to the present time. There is, I think, one thing which is a subject of extreme congratula- tion. You know that a few years ago there was an American scare, and we all fancied that English agri- culture was going to the dogs, and we could not com- pete with the foreigner. I am very happy to say that has not happened, and we have a pretty strong proof this year that so far as meat is concerned that it is not the case. I did not believe it would be the case, and did not think that it would ultimately injure the English beef producer. So far as breeding animals is concerned, I think we can hold our own (hear, hear.) I beg once more to thank you for the honour yon have done me in drinking my health (appladse). The President again rose, and proposed the health of the Successful Competitors, coupling with the toast the name of Mr Davies of Alleston. The President at the same time presented to Mr Davies the silver cup (given by Mr Philipps of Picton Castle) which he had I won as the exhibitor of the best Black Bull of any age. Mr Davies I never had the honour of having a cup like this in my hand before. I have won it to-day and have done so honourably. I did not hear any one in the yard say there was any doubt about it, and I am very thankful for having won so many prizes in the best show of Black stock I have ever seen in my life (hear hear). I am certain if this large county show be carried out, and we have prizes worth com- peting for, we shall be able to go to an expense which will produce greater improvement. There is no doubt that the Black cattle will be brought to such perfec- tion than no other breed will be able to compete against them. I can say this that they are the only rent-paying cattle in the world (loud applause). We hear of farmers in England breaking one after the other, but it is not very often a Welsh farmer breaks and we do not see any vacant farms in Wales as you see in England. It is beeause we have a cattle which pays tho rent, and I hope to see this county show established, x%-h-n greater improvements will be effec- ted. Such a show will be worth seeing there will be good stock (there, and I hope to jhave some among the many which will be there- (applause). President There is one toast which it is usual to drink on these occasions, and that is, Prosperity to the Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society." In con- nection with this toast, I beg to couple a very old friend and a very sincere assistant to the club-Mr John James (applause). I shall not waste your time with many words, but simply ask you to drink the toast—" Prosperity to the Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society," and I couple with it the name of our secro- tsry, Mr John James (applause). Secretary I thank you most, sincerely for the kind manner in which you have received the toast. I can only say that it will afford me great pleasure to give my best services in aid of agriculture in general. I can assure his Lordship that if be will kindly give me a few hours' notice, I shall be ready to afford any help I can in the furtherance of the scheme for the county central show (hear, hear). I have always been willing to do what I could to promote the success Wi IL ]toRociety, and I assure you that my w ish ia t h o fu b th III nnt. ho less stroncr than it has I been in the past (hear, hear.) J. ttaallk you very aln. cerely for the honour you have done me (applause). The meeting then broke up.
ALLEGED EXTRAORDINARY TREATMENT OF A CHILD. An adjourned inquiry was held on Thursday by the deputy-coroner (Mr B. W eekes), at tho Public Office, Birmingham, into the circumstance-) attending tho death of Arthur Edwards, aged two years and ten months, the son of G,!orge Edward Edwards, a fish hawker. The deceased had been nursed by a woman named Emma Yates, of Irving-street, who, on the last occasion, said that the child, when brought to her from the workhouse by its father, was in a wretched condition and gradually sinking. On Tuesday morning week the child was taken ifl, and died abont 20 minutes to five o'clock. It waR stated on Thuisday by Dr. Jackson, who had made a post-mortem examination, that tho body presented arc appearance of general emaciation, and weighed 1311b. The stomach wa3 quite empty, and the cause of death was mesenteric disease. That disease 1 ow ne snouia juage, had been present about three months. He was of opinion that death had been accelerated by want of medical attention.—Elizabeth Thompson the mother of the woman who took charge of the child, stated that her daughter asked her to see the child's father, and tell him he had better have a doctor to attend to the deceas d Witness said she sent the brother of the child to tell his father that the deceased ought to have a doc- tor, but the boy had told that he had forgotten to do so. She had never seen the father herself.-The boy, when examined, admitted having been told b; the last witness to tell his father that he should send a doctor to the child, He stated that he went fo his father's lodgings three times to see him, but he only saw him on one of these occasions, when ho forgot to tell him the nature of his errand Sarah Ann Edwards, of Barford-streei, the woman with whom the father lived, said he had told her several times that he wished his child was better. He said at the time the child was brought out of the work- house that he was ashamed to bring it out because in was in such a sinking state.—The Deputy-Coro- ner said that was all the evidence relating to the treatment of the child after it came out of the work- house. He proposed to call the workhouse officials to tell the jury the state of the child when it was taken from that institution, and to ascertain how far the allegations which had I een made were true. On the last occasion it was stated that the doctors allowed the child to leave the workhouse in a dying condition. Ho could not tuke the evidence of the witnesses from the workhouse that day, because it bad been impossible for the inspector to got them jI there.
THE FOLLOWING SYMTOUS SHOULD NOT BL5 NEGLECTED. The disease commences with a slight derangement of the stomach, but, if neglected, it in time involves the whole frame, embracing the kidneys, liver, pancreas, and, in fact, the entire granular system; and the .tfflicted drags out a ii afflicted drags out a lllsrable existence until death gives relief from suffering. The disease is often mis- taken for other complaints; but, if the reader will ask himself the following questions, he will be able to deter- mine whether he himself is one of the afflicted — Have I distress, pain/or difficulty in breathing after eating ? Is there a dull. heavy feeling, attended by drowsiness? Have the eyes a yellow tinge? Does å thick. sticky ?. gather about the gums and teeth in the mornings, accompanied by a disagreeable taste? Is the tongue coated ? Is there pain in the sides and back ? Is there a fulness about the right side as if the liver were en- larging ? Is there costiveness ? Is there vertigo or dizziness when rising suddenly from an horizontal posi- tion ? Are the secretions from the kidneys highly coloured, wfth a deposit after standing ? Does food fer- ment soon after eating, accompanied by flatulence or a belching of gas from the stom),ch ? Is there frequent palpitation of the heart ? These various symptoms may not be present at one time, but they torment the sufferer in turn as the dreadful disease progresses. If the case be one of long standing, there will be a dry, hacking cough, attended after a time by expectoration. In very advanced stages the skin assumes a dirty brownish ap- pearance. and the hands and feet are covered bv a cold. sticky perspiration. As the liver and kidneys become more and more diseased, rheumatic pains appear, and the usual treatment proves entirely unavailing against this latter agonising disorder. I he origin of thismalady is indigestion or dyspepsia, and a small quantity of the proper medicine will remove the disease if taken in its incipiency. It is most importa i!' that the disease should | be promptly and properly treated iu its first stages, when a little medicine will effect a cure, aud even when it has obtained a strong hold the correct remedy should be per- severed in until every vestige of the disease is eradicated, until the appetite has returned, and the digestive organs restored to a healthy condition. The surest and most effectual remedy for this distressing complaint is Seigel's Curative Syrup," a vegetable preparation sold by all chemists and medicine vendors throughout the world, and by the proprietors, A. J White, Limited, 21, Farringdon-road. I.ondon, E.C. This .yrup strikes at the very foundation of the disease, and drives it, root: and branch, out of the system.

Its peculiar properties purify and regulate the circulation, strengthen the stomach, increase the appetite, and rouse tne sluggish liver. It is invalu- able to dyspeptics, restoring the patient to the soundest health and strength. These preparations may be used at all times and in all climates by persons affected bv biliousness, flatulency, colic, nausea, or disordered liver for heartburn, water-pangs and sick-headaches they are specifics. Indeed, no ailment of the digesti ve organs can long resist their purifying and corrective powers. THE FOUNDATION OF HEALTH —Without a substratum a foundation of vigour, there can be no true health. The puny and the weak have all sorts of aches and pains. not necessarily because they are positively diseased, but because the vital machinery hitches and halts for want of the impetus which abundant vitality would give it The blood-enriching tonic, Dr. Bardsley's Antibilious Pills, supplies deficient energy by enabling the stomach to perform its digestive functions actively and uninter- ruptedly. The result of this is the distribution of stores of vitality to the remotest parts of the system, an in- crease of muscular energy, and the disappearance of those nervous symptoms which accompany and proceed from Debility. Irregularity of the Bowels, Torpidity of the Liver, Rheumatic Ailment, and Malarial Fevers are prominent among the actual diseases eradicated by this signally effbacious medicine.

OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENT LONDON", MONDAY. It is a long time since the political world was as dull as it is at present. All the heart seems to have gone out of the Conservatives—or is it that the moors and stubbles are more attractive than the stump?-and the Liberals are un- wontedly dumb. Well, they are modest, for events are certainly moving steadily in the direc- tion which the party would wish them to move. The rebellion of the Dublin police has been sub- dued by the firmness of the Lord Lieutenant aud his Secretary, greatly to the surprise of the Eng- lish Conservative Press, and somewhat-I regret to observe to their confusion. The most rabid of the Radicals are unable, it would seem, to raise a cry which will travel, against th way the war is being carried on by Sir Garnet Wolseley and—of course—Mr Childers. "Failure of the transport service," illness of the troops," "cholera," and so forth have been tried a." cries, but without permanent effect. Mr Gladstone has not been seriously disturbed in his retirement for a single moment, not even by the receipt of alarming news from Ireland, and the rest is doing him a world of good. Add to all these causes for comfort the substantial one of a decidedly favourable ingather- ing of the crops. There have been losses, it is true,—very serious losses, and in certain of the fruit of the land a scanty yield but altogether we have abundant reason to be thankful for the harvest, a circumstance which makes in favour of the Gladstonian cause, as the Tories know to their chagrin. Should Ireland go on improving and Sir Garnet cum., out of the Egyptian campaign with his usual good fortune, the extra session will open with Mr Gladstone at the head of a majority more determined and worshipped than ever. Nevertheless, the political world is dull. The action taken by the Public Prosecutor in relation to one of the alleged money-lending con- spiracies has created the liveliest satisfaction. This feeling, however, has been qualified by regret that the same functionary should have declined to interfere in the case which Mi- George Lewis, with such great kindness and public spirit, has undertaken. Whether or not the persons charged in these cases be convicted I say nothing about the merits of the cases- it is only too clear that a system of extortion pravnils in London which calls loudly for suDorog. ion. "Raids on Loan Offices" would be far more popular and more to the public advantage than Raids on Betting Offiees" ever have ben. The weakening, ami in many cases total with- drawal of tho usual garrisons from suburban residences in the holiday season must be regarded by our critical classes as a positive provocation and incitement to burglary, to judge from the numerous cases cf this offence which have lately come betoreonr po'ice-eourts. In the height of juauicr, w j the Loudon season in in full swing, burglars find a more profitable rield for their energies in half-deserteu country mansions but they don't seem to care about. attacking these strongholds in the shooting season. In fact, our professional housebreakers appear to conduct their operations on the judicious militiry princi- ple of attacking the enemy where he happens to be weakest for the time being and one conse- quently reads as something phenomenal and anomalous the capture of a Whitechapel burglar at Leicester just at this time of year, when the outskirts of London offer so many objects of attack, not defended, as tho Leicester house was, by a determined householder with a wife who could wield the poker in his support against the invader. A taste for rural excursionizing proba. bly betrayed this East-End ruffian into a tactical error which he will now have time to regret. I hear that the real or alleged transfer of the proprietorship of a well-known journal, which has for some time been the subject of consider-* able discussion in press circles, will shortly be discussed in the presence of one of Her Majesty's Judges, if, indeed, it be not first submitted to the consideration of a magistrate sitting at Bow Street. The matter may be arranged such mat- ters often are but all I can say is that if it is not, the public will be provided with a treat in the shape of curious revelations of no common order. The principal actor in the transaction is a gentleman who has figured before the public before in a case involving the right of himself or another party to a certain valuable literary copy- right. The othsr party won. In Republican France the title of Prince is so common that its use excites no great amount of veneration or surprise. Whilst in Russia there are supposed to be ah )ut a thousand Princes. In England, howLver, it appears that it may be a little dangerous to air a foreign title of so exalted a nature though in Peckham a lady who calls herself Princess O'Flea has been residing for some time, and has just quarelled with her land- lord through diversities of tastes and temper not uucommoa in such rela'ionship, and about which I nesd not make any specific ^remarks in the pre- sent case. I may observe, however, that the inhabitants of the really metropolitan portion of the Surrey side" are little accustomed to the presence of aristocratic residents. Upon the death of the Hon. Heys Tumour, of Kennington Park Road, recently, the South London Press remarked in a leader that no other member of the aristocracy had been known for many years to reside in South London. It is difficult to imagine how these regions can exist in so benighted a condition. But they seem quite happy and pros- perous without any rspresentatives of our old nobility." The Hon. Heys Turnour, whose lamented decease removed the single ray of blue- blooded brilliance which redeemed Kennington from a wholly Plebian darkness, was the second son of an Irish Peer named the Earl of Winterton. The Hon. Heys took a great interest in Sonth London public affairs, and he appears to be re- gretted on other grounds than the loss of the flavour of aristocracy with which his presence was wont to invest the neighbourhood of the Oval. As the day approaches for the race between the Philadelphian oarsmen and a Thames Jfour the interest of the public grows, not, however, at a rapid rate. The Hillside men are fine specimens of humanity. We have seen several representa- tive crews of Americans in this country but this is undoubtedly the finest. If, however, they defeat our men—and we have by no means a phenomenon lot to represent us-we shall have to go to school and learn rowing ever again. Their stroke is shorter than Jimmy'' Ham- mill's, the Pittsburg wonder. It is thought— and reasonably—that sutfi a stroke will never carry them to the end of the championship course. However, we shall see. My own opinion is that the Hillsides will have to return to Philadelphia handsomely beaten.—The Australians have drawn their match with I Zingari. The scores made by the-Colonials were enormous, consequently the draw looks in their favour. Be it borne in mind, however, that I Zingari was a remarkably strong batting team. It is a pity the match could not be played out. What a lot of luck the Austra- lians have played with to be sure This year will probably see the publication of the first part of the long-expected monster English Dictionary of the Philological Society. At present we are worse off than almost any European nation in the way of dictionaries but when this is completed we shall have one which will outrival that of any other country whatever. It has been more than twenty years in prepara- iuuutirxne able directiun of that .distinguished philologist, Dr. Murray. The part which will be issued first will be merely the letter A. At present it is contem. plated that the entire work will consist of 12 quarto volumes of 2,000 pages each. But it may be that by reducing the number of quotations a great compression may be effected.
TYPHOID AT BANGOR. The typhoid epidemic at Bangor, we regret to slate, still continues despite the active attempts which are being made by the local authorities to mitigate its ravages. The board of health is doing everything which modern science can suggest to get rid of the unwelcome visitor, and disinfectants are so freely em- ployed that ever3 whore in the city their strong odour i.s perceptible. The inhabitants are seconding the endeavours of the board in an excellent spirit. Even persons who are not residents of Bangor are making suggestions with a view of stamping out the epidemic and preventing its return. Among the most valuable information forwarded to the local board was that contained in the letter from Mr George Farren, C.E., of Carnarvon, which was read last week. Mr Farren directed attention to the insidious nature of sewer yas and tne manner in which it is generated in the sewers, and pointed out that as its tendency is to ascend, its escape should be provided for not less efficiently than that of sewage itself. He, therefore, holds that every sewer should be open at both ends, and every branch of the upper end of a sewer terminated by a chimney of sufficient height to give a good draught, and to olear the top of the houses, by which means the sewer gas might be rapidly conducted to the upper air, and there diluted and oxidised. These precautions with respect to main sewers are such as must commend themselves to persons who have studied sanitary science. Not less important are Mr Farren's sug- gestions with regard to subsidiary sewers and pipes leading to the interior of dwelling-houses. He is of opinion that every house, besides having all water- closeta effectually trapped, should have the main pipe from the sewer carried above the roof of the houses among the chimneys, and there left open so that the sewer gas in the drain may get away freely and rapidly. tliless this be done every pipe in a house becomes a gas holder ready to discharge a volume of sewer gas into the house. We quite agree with Mr Farren as to the importance of affording outlets for sewer gag The more such gas is confined the more concentrated and deadly it becomes in its [nature. Everp sewer that has nob a sufficient number of ventilators is nothing more than an elongated cesspool, and where. ever the gas escapes in its concentrated form it constitutes a terrible danger. However, as the Bangor Local Board intend to increase the number of ventilators, and to disconnect all house drains from the sewers, they seem to us to be pursuing the right course, and Mr Farren's excellent letter will further serve to guide them in safeguarding Bangor in future from the foe which a defect in their sanitary armour has unfortunately let into their city.- C(-tritarvoit lfuald.
