RHYL. SUPPER BY MR. HEALING.—On Monday evening last, Mr. Healing, the well-known auctioneer, and proprietor of the George Hotel, invited upwards of forty friends [mostly railway officials] to a grand supper at the Dud- ley Arms Hotel, for the purpose of celebrating the fortieth anniversary of his wedding-day. Mr. Healing himself sat at the head of the table, and Mr. Williams, station-master, occupied the vice-chair. A very pleasant evening was spent. IMPROVEMENT COMMISSIONERS. I The annual meeting of the Commissioners, for the passing of accounts, &c was held on Friday, the 24th ult. Present--Rev. Hugh Morgan; Messrs. Wm. Hil. ditch, Edward Roberts, Henry Parry, Thomas Roberts, J. R. Jones, Wm. Thomas, Edward Vaughan, Thomas Healing, E. Powell Jones, W. Wynne, Belvoir Hotel, J. Williams, ironmonger, Win. Morris, builder, John Jones, Dolawen. Mr. Hilditch was unanimously elected chairman of this day's meeting. The TOWN CLERK said the meeting had been called to receive the report of the Finance Committee held on the 21st ult., and to order that a rate be made at the July meeting of the Commissioners to meet the expenditure of the ensuing year. The CHAISMAN read a minuto account of the town ex- penditure during the past year, the total amount of which appeared to be £ 1348 12s. The total amount of receipts was £ 1343 ISs. 3Jd. The estimates for the ensuing yearwere then carefully gone through. Each item was well considered; and although a little knotty discussion ensued on some of them, they were ultimately unanimously passed without any alteration whatever. Ample provision is made at, we presume, the least possible expense, to place the promenades, the roads, drainage, lamps, &c., of the town, in good order, at an estimated expense of £ 1413 7s. 3d. A sum of S120 is included in that estimate towards purchasing a fire engine for the town, in addition to the £3,0 subscribed by the Insurance Companies. The CHAIRMAN said that out of 21414 7s. 3d. proposed to be expended for the ensuing year, it was ellleulated that £ 218 would be received from market diiei, &c., therefore they had only to provide a -ate for £ 20 and a rate of 2s. in the poand upon ? ?1'? 2,0"U on ?a?.ses?M property would produce that money, and leave a sum of about 95 more than they should require. It was unanimously resolved- "That a statement of the accounts [when audited] be printed for distribution, and that notice be given through- out the town of the intention of the Coinnnssioneis at the next monthly meeting, July 8th, to levy a rate of two shillings in the pound on tllf, estimated rateable value of the property within the town.h.p and that an estimate for the year lies for inspection at the CommM- sionera' otRce." In the course of the meeting, Ur. IIEALIXO said, with reference to the roads, that if a practical surveyor was appointed, say at a salary of X30 a year, to devote his attention to them, instead of entrusting them to a committee of inexperienced men in matters of that description, the Commissioners would thereby save a large amount of money. Mr POWELL JONKS observed that the Ko?d Commit- tee, mct..di? Mr. Healin, were all practical men,  were perfectly capable of superintending the tate of the roads. Ir. HEALIXG said he wouhl not be a surveyor he would not presume to be what he was not It WM es- sentia), in his opinion, that a Surveyor of Roads should be appointed in Uhyl. The CHAIRMAN said the subject would be a proper one to be mooted at the monthly meeting. Mr. HEALING then said he should give notice of it at the next monthly meeting. Nir. HEALING also drew attention to the necessity of having an efficient weighing machine in the market, and the importance of requesting the keeper to produce an exact account of the money received for weighing. 1 he revenue, in that respect, should be far greater than it is at present. The matter Wad thcn referred to the Market Ilall Com- mittee. The CHAIRMAN remarked that he was glad to see such unanimity at this meeting, and he only hoped the Com- missioned would shew the same unanimity when the subject of adopting the Local Government Act was brought forward.
