UNIVERSITY FOR WALES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WELSHMAN." SIR,-In common, doubtless, with many of your read- ers who take interest in the quostion, I am waiting for the completion of his case by your correspondent, Dr Evans, who is pursuing a somewhat exhaustive line of argument. As interruption would scarcely be fair towards him, I am surprised that Dr Evans should expect any replies for the present eitherfrom Oxonians or others. In reference to Dr Nicholas and the project of the Lon- don Committee, the failure of the Swansea meeting ren- ders it necessary to stay for the next manifestation of the state of their position and prospects before any remarks of much pertinency can be offered. The case of Lam- peter is pretty well settled, and the authorities have put forth their claims to public patronage. They offer their wares at a very low figure; they undersell our old Universities by 50 per cent., and the quality is to be not inferior-145 a year only is to be the price of a B.A. Lampeter." Who will not go to Lampeter ? Why not the Teify, with such inducements, rather than the Cam or Isis ? Well, nevertheless all this, the probability is that every man of us Welshmen who can muster the larger sum will be attracted to the more classic streams. But the object, let us suppose, of those who have been instrumental in obtaining this boon for Lampeter College was not competition, but an anx- ious and praiseworthy desire to secure for students intended for the cloth a suitable educational ground- work, similar, if not identical, with that required at Oxford and Cambridge and no one, surely, who has had opportunities of perceiving the extent to which the mental culture has been carried of a great many of those of the Welsh clergy whom Lampeter has sent forth, will seriously gainsay the necessity of this attempt at reform. I say attempt, because I am doubtful of its success. I believe it is a fact that one of the most eminent scholars, mathematical, classical, and di vine, that ever adorned the Vice-principalship at Lampeter, made the attainment of the first three books of the elements of Euclid essential to a pass; but that he or his immediate successor found even so much geometrical logic incom- patible with that prime necessity of the case-a due supply ofjclergymen for the diocese; therefore unless the preparatory attainments of the students are now, or are soon to become, much greater than at the period referred to, it is difficult to see how they are to master, not only more Euclid, but also arithmetic, a certain amount of algebra, together with demonstrations of the classical propositions in mechanics, hydrostatics, and pneumatics, together with deductions from the same. It is possible that the new scheme curtails largely the amount of divinity hitherto required, so as to allow more time for mathematical training. How- ever, at present, it so happens that there is a con- siderable lody of young men abroad educated chiefly at the public cost, and intended for schoolmasters. The instruction obtained by these, both as pupil-teachers and subsequently at the Training College, just fit them for the new state of things at Lampeter with the exception, generally perhaps, of their want of Latin and Greek. I refer, of course, to the young men so connected with the National Society for these, in addition to their mathematical and general at- tainments, have already had to pay considerable attention to the bible and prayer book. Indeed, the acquirements of these young men in the ordinary subjects of education, render it necessary for their clerical superiors, as mana- gers of schools, if literates, or Lampeterians, when examining the elder children, not to travel, on these oocasions, far from home in the hearing of these masters. The existence of i large class of these young men in the country is a fact; and the Committee of Council by the New Code, or payment for results," has to no small extent, blighted their prospects in the direc- tion of school keeping, and set them thinking upon other means of livelihood. No doubt very many of them are turning anxious eyes to Lampeter and its low tariff; and thus the National Society, if it fails to retain themjfor Church Schools, will see them transferred to the Church itself, whoso remoter, more barren, but very numerous outspots stand in need, and threaten to stand more in need of sentinels. The Training Colleges in their ultimate effects will prove to be more ecclesiastic than scholastic establishments. Promising ¡ to resume the question next week, I Yours very respectfully, C.
AMERICA- NEW YORK, Feb 18 (Morning.)—General Sherman has reached the south bank of the Congaree, a few miles east of Columbia. The Confederates retreated to the north bank. A battle is imminent. Northern accounts state that Sherman captured Branchville after three day's fighting; while Southern reports asserts that it was evacuated without fighting. A courier from General Sherman to Admiral Porter has arrived at Smithville, having ridden across the country. He announces the capture of Branchville on the 8th inst., by Sherman, after three days' hard fight- ing. Southern papers do not mention any battle, but state that in consequence of the Federal occupation of Orangeburg, Branchville was abandoned. General Beauregard has taken up a new Jine to cover Columbia.

NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS. At the expiration of existing contracts objectionable medical advertisements will no longer appear in the WELSHMAN. This determination was come to before the late discussion in the London papers, and for several months past as the contracts terminate the advertisements are discontinued. Our last contract ends on the 9th of June.
THE Bill introduced by Mr Villiers last week "for the better distribution of the relief of the poor in Unions," wherein he proposes to make the area of changeability commensurate with the area of administration," that is to say, to throw the relief of all the poor in a Union on the Common Fund, or, in other words, to intro- duce Union rating, if passed into law, will go far to mitigate the effects of the present law of settlement. The tendency of all legislation on this subject since IS 10 has been in the direction of Union rating. No less than three Select Com- mittees of the House of Commons have recom- mended it. Indeed, in the Act of 1834 power was given to transfer the area of rating from the parishes to the Union where the parishes were unanimous in desiring it only two Unions, however, availed themselves of this permission. Having regard to the great difficulties sur- rounding the subject, the legislature has been very cautious in its proceedings. In 1847 a principle was introduced which may be re- garded as the first great step in these reforms. It. was provided that a continuous residence of five years in any parish should con- stitute irremovcability from such parish, and by a subsequent Act the cost of all lunatics, and other irremoveable poor, should be borne by the Common Fund of the Union wherein they re- sided. In 1861, however, the most important changes were effected. Before that time the several parishes were only liable for their settled poor, and their contributions to the Union Charges or Common Fund were according to their aver- age poor expenditure for the previous three years. j In 18(11 the residence to give a status of irre- moveability was limited to three years, and the area of chargeability enlarged from the parish to the Union; it was moreover provided that
whose version of what had occurred in the committee- room waa not correct. Mr Knight said he should divide the House. Mr Villers said that if the hon gentleman postponed his motion for a day or two he should make inquiries as to whether the figures he wished for ere in the Poor Law Office. Mr Knight, under these circumstances, postponed his motion.
