LLANDUDNO. I THE EISTEDDFOD -Original Conundram.-A punning correspondent has perpetrated the following Con Why is the Pavillion which is now elected at Llandudno for the Eisteddfod, like the town of Llandudno itself? Give it up ?-No. Because it has Felt on, by George CARNARVON REGATTA.—On Tuesday last, the steamer Fairy" arrived at Llandudno in the morning, and c o- veyed a large number of visitors to Carnarvon to see the Regatta. Mr. Wallace's Stringed Band was on board, and played a number of popular pieces to enliven the pas- sengers on their pleasant trip. GAVAZZI. —This eloquent and patriotic Italian delivered a stirring lecture in the Music Hall, Llandudno, on Wednesday evening last, to a crowded company; the subject being "Garibaldi." During the address, the celebrated foreigner was frequently and enthusiastically applauded. Mr. DRAYTON'S OPEERTTAS.— In our report of the above performance which appeared in the last CHRONICLE it was stated that Mr. George Owen played the accompaniments on the pianoforte. This was an error, as they were played by a gentleman conected with Mr. Drayton's company, who personally very much resembled Mr. Owen, and our Reporter was so placed as he could only see- his back. For the rest, Mr. Owen, himself, is responsibly as when questioned on the subject by our Reporter, he stated that he was so engaged. THE EcsTEDDFOD-The pavillion, which is being erected in the open field opposite the Post-office, under the energetic management of Mr. Pritchard, the con- tractor, is now nearly completed'. It is a very large building, octagonal in shape, and covers an area of about 4000 square yards. It will be completely covered with felt, which is perfectly impervious to water. In its construction there will be used 6000 cubic feet of wood,. 5 tons of iron, 4500 yards of felt, 250 yards of calico for the windows, and the same quantity of red cloth for the first class seats. It will be finished early in the ensuing week, and much credit is due to Mr. Pritchard for the rapidity with which it has been ejected. The number- of Presidents (four) lias been appointed, and the other- arrangements are progressing most satisfactorily. THE VISITORS.—During the latter part of last week the number of visitors to Llandudno had very sensibly declined; but on Monday and Tuesday the fresh ar- rivals were very numerous, so that the blanks were fully filled up. The weather continues to be most de- lightful, so that the season will be one of the very best ever experienced in the town. By some it is thought that the Eisteddfod will have an injurious effect by- crowding and incommoding the regular visitors; but for oursselves we cannot understand why this should 00 so, as the Eisteddfod will only last over four clear days. If anything, it ought to act as an attraction rather than otherwise. BREACH OF THE PEACE.—On Tuesday last, the 9th inst., Mr. Henson, who occupies a shop in Llewelyn- street, was brought up before the Rev. J. Morgan, charged with using threatening language to Mrs. Gough, wife of Mr. Geo. Gough, lapidary, the Church-walks, and Mostyn-street. After hearing, the evidence, the dte- fendant was bound over to keep the peace for six months, and to pay the costs. NEW CHURCH.—A meeting of the Committee took place on Wednesday last, the 10th. inst., at the Rectory, Llandudno. There were preseat-Rev. J. Morgan (in the c hair), Messrs. E. Moore, Jbhn Williams, James Williams, T. A. Jones, T. Morrall, J. Ellis, and Dr. Roden. Mr. Felton, architect, attended with the plans. After the minutes of the last meeting had been read and confirmed, Mr. FSLTON exhibited the Plans, and explained some alterations he had made, with the view of diminishing the cost of the Church. It was unai imously resolvad-That Mr. Felton be in- structed to complete the plans and specifications, and advertise for tenders as soon as possible. A letter was read from Nr. Warden, of Birmingham, respecting iron hurdles for the purpose of fencing in the site, and the Secretaries were requested to ascertain the present cash price. After the- transaction of some routine business, the meeting separated.
LIVERPOOL CORN EXCHANGE.—1TUESDAY. The arrivals of wheat and flour during the past week are on a comparatively sinall scale, but of European corn they are toler- ably fair. The export list is unimporlantt. Our latest American advices speak of the difficulty of procur- ing good shipping qualities of wheat in New York, but notwith- standing this and the high prices ruling, it still comes forward. We have little or no business to report in either wheat or flour in the interval since Friday's market and consequently no change has occurred in prices. Indian corn has attracted attention and with a good demand must be quoted fully M per qr dearer. At Mark Lane yesterday several samples of new wheat appeared, but almost all were badly fed and seemed to be preroatajrdy ripe, prices giving way Is to. per qr. on the week Onr market has not been largely attended to-day, but a con- cession of Id per cental being made in wheat a pretty good clearance has been effected of all pressing lots, and we may re- peat the quotations of last Friday.

ASCENT OF SNOWDON, FROM BEDD. GELERT. A correspondent has favoured us with the follow- i inp :— For several years past. the number of visitors who have made the tour of Wales has been very great, and it would seem that the number is yearly increasing. The great attraction to most of them, who are not de- cided invaEds, is the monarch of Welsh iiioiilitaiii-i- Snowdou as a visit to Wales which does not include in its programme the ascent of that worUl-fatned lnotin- tain would be considered quite incomplete -wwething like the play of Hamlet sans Hamlet himself. 1 o have made the tour of Wales is looked upon, therefore, as tantamount to saying, I have been on the top of Suowdon." Singular to say, with the Welsh themselves the uiiifr ter is verv different, for I am justified in saying that many thot!mds of persons who have been" burn aull bred" within a few lailes of its base, and who have dwelt under its shadow, perhaps, for forty or fifty years, never were upon its rommit in their lives. I cannot verv well account for this, unless upon the supposition that that which is familiar to us, and is seen by us every day', loses its attraction and the interest which is attach- edto it by strangers. However this may be, I will be bound to say that more Englishmen have viewed the -gorgeous landscape from the top of "Yr yddia than have Welshmen. Until last week, I am ashamed to own that could ,have been placed in the category of these unambitious, •uaexplorative Welshmen myself although upon many previous occasions I bad fully determined to make the asceit to view the glories of the Motherland from the top of thk cloud-capped hill." I then resolved to procrastinate no longer, and so a little party of six was hastily formed (three ladies and three gentlemen), of which your humble servant constituted the sixth unit. Suowdon is composed of four great ridges, each of which is separated from the others by immense ciems, or precipitous hollows, but all uniting in one high and peaked central point. There are likewise four common ascents, namely, from Llanberis (or more correctly Dol- badarn), from Beddgalert, from Uyn Cywellyn, and from Capel Curig—that from Dolbmlaru being generally considered the easiest. As, however, the whole of the party resided in a town OI.ly a few miles south of Betldgeltrt, we decided to as- cend by the nearest route. We had a pleasant drive to the romantically-situated village of Beddgelert, which we approached by the famous Pas. of Pont Aherglaslyn, andwedroreup at once to the c >mfortable Sara 'Jen's Head Inn, in order to enjoy the hospitality of Nt r. and Mrs. Jones, the respected host and hostess, in order to nerve our- selves for the toilsome labour which was awaiting us. This having been done, we continued our journey along the road leading to Carnarvon, and after we had driven akbotit three miles or so, we turned off to the right at a spot called Pitt's Head,—a rock on the road-side, said to resemble that great statesman. When we arrived at a farm houie called Ffridd uchaf, we halted, and there left the horse and trap to await our return. The ascent from this point began in downright earn- est but we bounded forward with the utmost spirit and nimbleness, and truth compels me to admit that the ladies, one and all, acquitted themselves most admi- rably, as they were as agiie as young does. The scenery soon became magnificent in the extreme, and at favourable points we rested, partly to recover broath, and partly to enjoy the different views, which changed the higher we went np. From above the farm- house we oould not see the summit of Snowdon, but we had a fine view of the peak of Aran, with its long serra- ted curtain, which towered above on the east side. Af- ter steady collar work for about two miles, hot, panting, and breathing hard, we began to get the better of Cwm Craigog, and halted at a nice spring of water, cool as a zephyr," a quantity of which we mixed with certain li- quids we had secured in small casks. The ladies were still in high spirits, and appeared as fresh, and more rosy, than when they left the Ffridd farm-house. We then resumod our labour, and shortly after came in sight of a profound hollow, which seemed to penetrate into the very heart of the mountain called Cwm y Clogwyn," in which we saw four small pools or lakes. The depth and gloom of this great hill's siJitude im- pressed us with awe, for its awful grandeur was very great, inconceivable indeed to those who had never wit- aessei it. We were now approaching the Cladd Coch," or Red Ridge, locally termed "The Saddle," which is the terror of all tourists who ascend Snowdon by the Beddgelert route. The prospect from this spot is awfully sublime, for the depth on each side is Something fearful, for one feels that a single false step would inevitably be fatal. I was glad to find, however, that in a short time the dan- ger wiS be greatly reduced, for the narrow bridge, or saddle, is being widened by Mr. Prichard, of the Goat Hotel, Beddgelert, so that in future the most timid will not have any fears on that score. It is said, but we did not test it, that if a person held a large stone in each hand, and let them both fall at once, each would roll tbove a quarter of a mile, and that when they stopped they would be more than half a mile alwtider. From this spot we had a fine view of the lakes Llydan and Glas- lyu-the former filling the bottom of a dark CICIn 14 miles in length. After safely crossing the Saddle," we had to climb over some slippery rocks, and in a few minutes we had the pleasure of seeing the top of Snowdon right in front of as. This tended to raise our spirits, and also to quicken our speed, and shortly after we had the great pride and satisfaction of standing upon the highest point ofY Wyddfa," the highest point in the British Isles sauth of the Tweed, and 3571 feet above the level of the Glaslyu River. The view from this exalted scene is grand to suhli- mitv, and is almost unbounded. The whole of Carnar- vonshire, Merionethshire, Anglesey, and Denbighshire, were apparently beneath us, extended like a map. On a verv favourable day, it is said that part of the North of England, Scotland, and Ireland, is to be plainly distin- guished, as is also the Isle of Man; but, although the day was beautifully fine, there was too much mist in the atmosphere for us to see those distant places. It is quite impossible for anyone to describe the scene which presents itself from the summit of Snowdon. On every side, the tope of large mountains (of no mean elevation themselves)were at our feet as it were on some of them were large pools of water; the towers of Carnarvon, the green smooth ocean, swelling hills, rivers looking like silver threads, deep hollow chasms, dark cwms or hol- lows, and stupendous precipices,—all met the wondering gaze at once, leaving an impression which, once received, can never be erased or forgotten. We felt, as it were, in another world, quite different to and distinct from that common prosy one which we had left behind us at Beddgelert, and which, for the moment, I almost felt ashamed of having ever lived in What were mea and women, towers and villages, churches jnd chapels, mansions and castles, and such small things, to Nature's works an seen from this glorious old hill! From this misty but delicious reverie, I was rudely awakened by some intruder tapping me on the arm, and asking in coaxing tones, whether I was not going with the rest into the Hotel" ? Of course I intended going into the Hotel," the pleasure of the thing being great- ly enhanced by the confiding tones of the fair one who JO quaintly put the question. So I obeyed at once, md entered the elevated and distinguished establish. ment. Perhaps I had better state, for the information of all those whom it may concern, that the actual summit of Snowdon is not more than 12 yards in diameter; but there are erected upon it two or three sheds, rudely fit- ited up as sleeping rooms, and one room used as a coffee room. These buildings are somewhat magni-eloquently styled the Snowdon Hotel," and I can assure all intending visitors that, considering the circumstances, the accom- modation and attendance are first-class. There were a number of people on the Top" be- sides those of our little party, so that the Hotel was quite crowded. The ladies expressed a desire to hav a cup of coffee, and no sooner was the order given tha we heard the musical notes of the coffee mill, so th: the delicious beverage was quite fresh; and our fa. companions told us they never tastod nicer coffee in their lives. For inysel4 I enquired for a bottle of Bar- clay's Stout, but, owing to the crowd, I had made up my mind to wait some time before I could be supplied but immediately after the order had been received we heard the corkscrew in operation and the glasses tinkling, and the porter was at once served out to us-an expedition whioh would put to shame some hotsls which I could name down in the lowlands. Sixpence was charged for a class of whiskey, and a shilling for the coffee, with plenty of good plain bread and butter. Not so dear for t Le')I) of Snowdon, I thought. What will the good souls in Llandudno say to this mo- derate tariff and bill of fare ? The porter was remarkably good, and as cold as if it had been iced. In fact, we had a jolly time of it on the top," and amused ourselves in a variety of ways, everybody doiug that which was right ia his o'vn eyes, with no parson to over-awe, or a police- man to intimidate us I wish here to make a remark in reference to the MVush mountain ponies employed in carrying ladies up Snowdou. It is really quite astonishing to see them and I noticed them very particularly. They seemed even fastidiously careful, for they never once put a foot upon a stone or anything of that sort which might cause them to slip or stumble; but they appeared as wary aud careful as any human being could possibly be. After enjoying ourselves to our hearts' content on Soowdon's topmost height," we returned down its ai&- in high glee, re-passed the dreaded saddle" safely *ad ia triumph, akirwished down the steep at double udill ? obort time rmcill t t 41 8af-I, where we found our Buchephalus waiting for us, and utuiiubiiig hity at a fiiie rate. We Boon pnt biin all right in lus harmas, and in less than 15 minutes we were sitting in the Saracen's Head, chatting with the good-natured landlady. and recounting the wonders we had seen and the scenes we had gone through. After enjoying a sumptuons repast, we started for PortiuMloc on our return home, where in due time we safely ri ved, feding greatly gratified aud pleaded with our—TRIP TO SNOWDOX.

CEMMES. I NOB £ ,B QWFBOSRTI-.—Among the many acta of be- nevolence and kindness shewn by J. 0. Jones, Esq., and family, Bronygog, Machynlleth, during their residence at Dolcorsllwvn Hall, in the neighbourhood of Cemmes, both to their friends, and to the poor in particular, we are happy to mention the gift which Mr. Jones left in the good Rector's hands as a memento of his attachment to the Church, viz., a most superb Bible and Prayer Book for the reading-desk in the Church. The departure of Mr. and Mrs. Jones from this neighbourhood is sin- cerely regretted by all classes, to whom they were much attached..
CONWAY. I THE BITER BIT-Our correspondent writes Last week the hotel keepers and others in these districts were cautioned against the swindling practices of a per- son who professed to be a tourist, but who was tempo- rarily short of cash, and was daily waiting for a remit- tance. In one Inn, in Llandudno, he ran up a bill of JSoodd; and in another, before his character was sus- pected, he got in debt to the tune of X2 lis. In Con- way he was equally successful, but upon a much smaller scale, as the Couwayites very soon found out there was something wrong about his gent-ship. On Friday morn- ing last, he was nabbed by P.C. Griffith Thomas, under the following circumstances. It appeared that, having failed to obtain a lodging at one of the Temperance Ho- tels, he started off in the Direction of Llansautffraid, and bad got as far as Pensarn Bridge, over the railway. This was about one o'clock in the morning. He was there met by the police officer in question, who recognised him, and questioned him as to what he was, and to where he was going ? Not liking these official interrogato. ries, he became insolent, and attempted to get away, and in the end he assaulted the officer, who at once col- lared him and took him to the lock-up in Conway. On Saturday he was brought up before the Rev. M. Mor- gan, at the police-station, and was charged with assault- ing the police. Seveial parties were also present who gave evidence as to his getting board and lodging of them upon false pretences. He was thea remanded un- til Friday (yesterday) to the Petty Sessions. As he gave his name Elliott in one place, and Roberts in another, his real name at present is not known for a certainty but it is said that he is the son of a respectable farmer in England. COUNTY COURT, Thursday, Aug. 11-Before R. V. Williams, Esq, Judge. This was a small Court, the number of cases entered being only a few over 60, of which there remained but 33 for hearing, the rest being settled out of Court. Very few of the actions possessed the slightest feature of pub- lic interest. Robert Hughes v. Thomas Twist.—This was an action brought by the plaintiff, who is a shoemaker, to recover 4s. 5d., the balance said to be due from the defendant. The account seemed to be a long-standing one; and as the plaintiff could not produce the details, nor show how the balance" had been arrived at, he was therefore non-suited. Mr. W. Jones appeared for plaintiff. Owen Jones v. Henry Parry.—The plaintiff lives at Conway, and the defendant is a master builder, residing in Llandudno. The sum claimed was £ 1 15s., for work done with a horse and cart. The original amount due was 12 Is., which had been reduced by 6s. Defendant did not appear. Order forthwith. Jane Jones v. William Davies and Wife.—The parties live in Llandudno. The plaintiff was engaged as an ironing woman, for the summer, at Is. per day, to be paid weekly. The plaintiff, however, managed to get into a quarrel with the washerwoman, and in a huff, and without any notice, she left the service of the de. fendant. This was on a Tuesday. The claim was for 8s., but his Honour only awarded her 4s. wages, due up to the previous Saturday, and without costs. John Thomas v. E. E. Jones.—The defendant is a flour merchant, and lima at Moohdre, near Conway. The action was brought to recover the sum of X5 12u. due to the plaintiff. lpe defendant did not appear in Court. Judgment forthwith. Roberts v. Jones.—The plaintiff in this action keeps a draper's shop in Conway, and the defendant is a fisher- man. The amount claimed was Is., said to have been lent by the plaintiff. When the case was called on, the defendant walked boldly forward, but the plaintiff was not present at the time. His Honour, on seeing the amount in the sum- mons, told the defendant to go home, as he could not think of keeping a man there waiting about a shil- ling. H. Williams v. Wm. Hughes.—The defendant is a sawyer, and has a small farm at Llangwstenyn. The amount stated to be due was XII 6s,, and it has been owing a long time. The plaintiff stated that he oould not possibly get his money, as a person had a Bill of Sale for E50 or so on the property. The defendant urged that he was quite unable to pay anything; but his Honour did not credit this, and or- dered him to pay 1511- a month. # Mr. W. Jones appeared for plaintiff. Twist v. The plaintiff and defendant are sis- ters-in-law, they having married two brothers, both of whom are dead, and they live at Towyn, a small hamlet on the banks of the Conway and on the opposite side of the Morf From tah.e evidence of Anne Tvrist, the plai.nttif, i. tj would seem that her husband lent hfe brother, Edward Twist, the sum of £ 15 in her presence, but that £7 had been paid back,—namely, cash, £ 2 potatoes, XI and for work, JS4. When he was dying, he said, in her pro. sence, that his wife, the defendant, would baud over the balance, £ 8, which was the amount claimed in the ac- A woman, named Grace Roberts, spoke to having heard the defendant's husband acknowledging that he was indebted to his brother in the sum of X8. The defendant denied having any knowledge of the debt at all, or that her husband ever borrowed the nHY. 11<'Y, She owed the plaintiff just la. 6d., and that was all After a good deal of talk about the defendant's means, as she owns the house she occupies, but which is mort. gaged to i:100, it probably being worth some £ 300 or BO- °° His HONOUR directed that she should pay El per m outh. Mr J. G. Jones appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Far- rant for the defendant. There were three judgment summons, one party be- ing sent to prison for 14 days.
I LLANRWOT. A BABDO-DRUIDIC GOR9EDD.—A novel, and yet a most interesting meeting was held upon the banks of the Geirionydd Lake, about 3 miles above Llanrwst, on Saturday last, where a Gorsedd of British Bards was opened on Cadair Taliesin, in the presence of some two or three hundred spectators. The symbolic signs of an- cient Druidism-the twelve sacred stones- -one large stone in the centre—representing the 12 signs of the zo- diac, were placed on the green sward beneath with reli- g ious veneration. Candidates for honours in bardiRln; song, and general literature, here presented themselves for examination—the Rev. Thomas Roberts (Scorpion) presiding; after which the bards, literati, and the can- didates for honours, moved in procession to Bryn-y-Can- iadau, where Mr. J. Bilsland Hughes played a variety of Welsh airs. Those who passed their examination successfully were afterwards presented to the presiding genius (Kev. R. Parry), who invested them with the badges, according to the degrees they had attained, Se- veral poetical and other addresses were delivered after which the invited guests retired within the eylch (cir- cle) to partake of luncheon, which in a pic-nic style was most liberally laid out. After the removal of the cloth," Gwyneddon was voted to the chair, and a social meeting of the most agreeable nature was enjoyed. Speeches were extemporised by Gwilym Cowlyd, Trebor Mai, Owain Williams, Waenfawr, and the renowned Isaac Owen, of Llanrwst, relieved by occasional pen- nillion singing with the harp by Messrs. Parry and Ed- wards; and others by Mr. Williams (Bronfraith), of Brynaerau, Clynnog, and Deiniol Ogweu. Adjudica- tions were also read upon extempore subjects—3 prizes being offered by Mr. T. Richards, of Bangor, for the same. The proceedings terminated by the company singing God bless the Prince of Wales" and the Na- tional Anthem.—[Theenglynion will appear in our next.]
i MACHYNLLETH. I CLERICAL APPOINTMENT.—On Sunday, the 31st ult., the Rev. Edward Jenkins, of Durham College, was or- dained and admitted into Deacons' orders by the Right Rev. the Lord Archbishop of York, iu the cathedral of that city and he has been since licensed by the Lord Bishop of Bangor to the Curacy of Machynlleth. From what we know of the young man's antecedents, we anti- cipate that his appointment to the Christian ministry in the Church will confer honour upon that sacred pro- fession. He preached his first sermon at this Church, on Sunday last, from the words of the Apostle Paul :— God forbid I should know anything among you but Jesus Christ, and him crucified."
PWLLHELI. I APPOINTMENT.—The Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas has appointed Mr. Griffith Thomas Pictou Jones, of this town, a Commissioner for taking the acknowledgments of Deeds by married women. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The fortnightly meeting of this Board took place on Wednesday last. Present—Mr. Wm. Watkins, presiding chairman, O. Evans, Esq., ex officio, and nineteen elccted Guar- dians. Tenders for clothing materials for the Workhouse were received, and that of Mr. John Ellis, Shop Goch, was accepted. Lette-s were read from the Poor Law Board, dated the 5th instant, enclosing the copy of a letter they had re- ceived from Mr. O. E. Owen, of Fronoleu, Saron, Llan- ddeiniolen, near Carnarvon, respecting the case of Mary Jones, a pauper, belonging to the parish of Bodvean, in this Union, and residing at Tai Newyddion, Penybryn, in that parish, complaining of insufficient relief granted to her. Ordered-That the Clerk do write in reply, that the relief of 3s. 6d. a week now granted to her was, in the opinion of the Board, considered sufficient. It was further ordered-That the Clerk do write to each member of the assessment committee, requesting their attendance at the Board on the 24th inst. Balance in Treasurer's hands jC609 4s. 3d.

Pritchard, and G. Simpson. The minutes of the last Board were confirmed. Pinfold rtpaivs.-The Clerk was requested to send a copy of the minutes of the last meeting relating to the pinfold, to Mr. H. R. Roberts. Yhe Rev. R. R. Parry Mealy s cottages.-Mr. Hall, Mr. Mealy's agent, having attended the Board, stated, as the rev. gentleman intended very shortly to rebuild the pre- mises in question, he trusted the Board would only en- for,* such works as would be neco ary for a temporary purpose—and that the members would individually inspect the premises referred to. The Board consented to the request of Mr. Mealy, and inspected the premises, when it was resolved that (Mr. Hall being present was informed of the resolution) the Board would consent, as a temporary expedient, that a privy and ashpit be built in the garden for the three houses in question, and that access to the garden be provided for the two outside houses; the members ex- pressing their intention that this measure should only be temporary, and that the houses could not be tolerated as human habitations in their present state after May, 1865. These temporary works and alterations to be carried out immediately. Beach road diversion.-The Clerk was requested to call Messrs D. Williams and T. T. Parry & Co.'s at- tention again to the Board's desire, that they would take the necessary steps to legalise the said rood diver- sion. Cheques for current accounts were signed, when the meeting separated.

CIETY.—On Friday afternoon (yesterday), a meeting of the Committee of this Society was held at the Penrhyn Arms Hotel, for the purpose of appointing the judges for the ensuing year. The following gentlemen were present:—Sir It W. Bulkeley, Bart, Robert vies, Esq., Messrs. & Simpson, Ll. Lewis (Aber), R. B.

PAINFUL DREAMS.— Dr. Winslow has often said that food before being swallowed should beproperly masticated' otherwise it woold cause indigestion. Now all doctors agree with Dr. Winslow that indigestion is the forerunner of a sick headache, loss of appetite, giddiness, blotches, pimples, sallowness of the skin, bilious and liver com- plaints, and that disagreeable companion the nightmare, with all the horrible dreams. All pt'sona who suffer from imperfect mastication wouldido well to consult some really scientific mechanical dentist. Those who are in want of any one may have their wishes gratified at No. 6. Market-streei, Carnarvon. Mr. Scott has rendered great service since his arrival amongst us from the capital of the Emerald Isle.
Another instance of death by sunstroke occurred in London on Monday. The decease-i-was a child 5 yeiri (id, residing in Kingsland. Messrs. Cocks have refused an: offer of jESOOO for the copyright of Briiiley Richards' song God bless the Prince of Wales." A son of Mr. Tordoff, of Bcothtown, near Halifax, was killed on Mbnday evening by the explosion of a pis- tol which he had rammed to. the muzzle and. fired off, notwithstanding the warning he received as to the consequence. The young man Parker, who was convicted at the last Nottingham assizes of the- murder of his mother at Fiskerton, was executed on Wednesday in front of Not- tingham gaol. Dr. Livingstone is at present staying at Minefield House, West Calder, tha residence of his early friend and associate Mr. James Young, the patentee of the celebrated paraffin oil. The number of deaths in: London during the past week was 1595, being a considerable increase over the corresponding period of the past 10 years. The births registered were 1906. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland has transferred Pro- fessor Nesbitt from the Greek chair of the Queen's Col- lege, Galway, to that of Latin in the Belfast College, va- cated by Dr. Reichel on his appointment to the vicarage of Mullingar. On Saturday, shortly after the Haqtinp express had passed Tunbridge Wells, a bullet was firod through the window of a first class aarriage, occasioning great alarm, but fortunately doing no other mischief than smashing the glass. A few evenings, since, some. miscreant cut open, the belly of a horse belonging to a farmer near Sedgeley. When discovered, the goor creature was alive with its bowel protruding, but it soon afterwards died. The Lord-Lieutenant of Irelaail feft Kingstown an on Wednesday evenining, in the nwil steamer Connaught for Holyhead, where he remained for the night, and pro- eeeded next morning to Chester, en route to Castle Ho- ward, Morpeth, Yorkshire. The visit of Lord Palmers ton to Bradford was brought to a close on Wednesday by an inspection of the eaten. sive alpaca works at Saltaire, near that town. His.lord- ship subsequently returned to London, and on his depar- ture was enthusiastically cheered by a large concourse of spectators. Two members of the a5th Somerset Rifle Corps met on their rifle ground, at Baltonsborough, for private practice, on Tuesday evening; and when one of them was firing at long range, the marker, a lad 13. years of age, imprudently went to the target without the danger signal, and was shot dead, the rifle ball having passed completely through him. Air. Creed, who fired the rifle, has been exonerated from all blame in the matter. James P. Price and James Scott were on Wednesday arraigned in the Crown Court, Liverpool; before Lord Chief Jastice Cockburn, on the charge of having feloni- ously assaulted and wounded Dr. Rowe¡. with intent to do him grievous bodily harm. Upon that indictment the jury, after a deliberation of two hours, found both the prisoners guilty, but recommended them to mercy. The judge, although acting, as he said, upon that re- commendation, sentenced them to is months' imprison- ment each, with hard labour. On Thursday, upwards of sixty children were poisoned in Liverpool, and had a narrow escape of their lives, by eating Calaber beans, which had been taken from a vessel just arrived from the West Coast of Africa, and thrown with a quantity of rubbish on some vacant ground in Greenland-street. At present only one child has died. This is the second case of a similar nature which has occurred within nffew weeks, and will doubtless lead to the adoption of measures to oheok the dangerous practice at this port of vessels coming from foreign* ports depositing ballast containing poisowuw seeds wtaoh may be partaken et by childreft and W to suob, serious results.

THE LLANDUDNO COMMISSIONERS. To the Editor of the North Wales Chronicle. Sir,—Last week I stated that great dissatisfaction with the Commissioners existed among the people of Llan. dudno. The constitution of the Board lies at the hot- torn of this. In the infancy of the town, the Board, as it was then composed, may have represented the mh?M- tants. The population was then small, and the interests of that period were comparatively insignificant; but M men and money became attracted to the spot, as the town and its population increased, those interests also increased in importance. It is but a few years since there was but one shop in what was then a village. After a while two or three were opened during the summer months; and closed for the winter. Now there are shops in great numbers, and a considerable trade, which goes ouall the year round. Street has beeii added to street, and terrace to terrace, public companies and public works, representing a vast amount of capital, have been forced into existence by the growing necessities of the community, and the growing importance of the Ilooality as a favourite and much frequented watermg place. pl The conditions of the town are-mnmena?Iy changed, but the Board of Commissioners remains the same, it has not progressed; that Boar.l, as at present constituted does not represent the town; it is inadequate to its work, and cannot rise to the level of the demands of the present time; it does not represent the capital and in- telligence of the place, and it is nut competent to deal with the large quustibns which are pressing for a solu- tion. I have said that the Board may have answered its purpose at its first formation whether it did or not, it is scarcely worth while to enquire. There' were always a few good men among it3 members, and they no doubt succeeded in impressing some of their ideas on the mass; but they were always in a minority, and had a difficult game to play. Some, iudeed, retired from the Board in disgust, finding it impossible to carry aoy bene- ficial measures, and tired of being borne down by a majority who were generally ready to vote against any proposition for the improvement and developement of the place. As it was, so it is now.-A few of the Commissi,oners are willing to advance, but the majority hang back, and are indisposed to do anything that can possibly be left undone. They will do nothing until they are absolutely compelled by the force of circumstances or the pressure of public opinion. They waste the public time by f. uit- less propositions and counter propositions, and generally end by postponing business, which presses for immediate decision, to a more convenient season. They act on the principle that wh it did for their father will do for them —that what did ten years ago, will do now. That principle may,, or may not, apply to their private con- cerns; but it cannot be made to'apply to public affairs, and to the interests of their constituents. Their chief ooncern has always appeared to be how not to do it." But to the townspeople it is a. question of the utmost im- portance—it is a question whether their time, their labour and their capital shall be remunerative and pro- fitable, or whether their all shall be swamped by the defective administration and mismanagement of the Board of Commissioners. Some stringent observations- have been made by some of your correspondents on the unfitness of many of the Commissioners, from their want of education and other disqualiifcations for the place they occupy at the head of the affairs of the town. And it will no doubt be generally admitted by the majority of the townspeople, that those strictures were not uncalled for, and that the powers wielded by the Commissioners ought to be placed in abler hands. It is said, and I believe with truth, that some of the members of the Board are not able to speak or to understand the English language, that they can scarcely do more than write their own names, and that they are totally devoid of education. A man is none the worse for being a labouring man, and the greatest credit, and the greatest respect is due- to the working man who lifts himself up in the social scale by his own industry and prudence. But no man of business ever employs even a clerk or assistant unless; his education and train- ing have beeaisuch as to prepare him for the due per- formance of his work. How much less will he think of setting him at the head of lli- business, and entrusting him with the control of affhirs which he did not under- stand. It is equally obvious that no man can be capable of conducting public affairs unless he have the requisite knowledge and experience to guide him, nor ought he to be placed in such a situation. It unfortunately happens that every man thiuks him- self competent to conduct public business. Were it not so, I am persuaded that many of the Llandudno Com- missioners would !()ng ago haA-e voluntarily retired from a position for which they are not in any way fitted, and in which they are unable to meet the requirements of the town. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, ST. GEORGE.
A child has been killed at Breadsall by a blow upon the head from an iron-spiked arrow, accidentally dis- charged from a toy called a" flirt." Charlotte Elizabeth Cooper, a native of Sheffield, only 15 years of age, has just returned home, after having completed a voyage round the world on board the Isabel- la Hercus, in which she was engaged as nurse to the com- mander's infant son. A HINT TO THB LADIBS.—If you want your Litces and Linens dressed in a superior style, (and who does not) you should use only the GLENFlELBt STARCH, and you wiil be delighted with the elasticity and beautiful finish it gives to those articles. The Glenfield Starch is exclusively used in the Royal Laundry, and her Ma- jesty's Laundress pronounces it to be the finest Starch she ever used. It was awarded two Prize Medals for its superiority, and the manufacturers have received numerous testimonials from all cl:isses, all agreeing as to its excellent qualities. We would respectfully cau- tion our fair readers when buying the Gtenfield Starch, to see that they get it, as inferior kinds are often sub- stituted. The manufactureas have much pleasure in stating that they have been appointed Starch Purveyors to H.R.H. the Princess of Wales.

REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADfe DURING THE PAST WEEK. The past week has brought us into the midst of harvest, with the weather as flno as could be desired. A pause has also ensued in business 1n consequence, as the quantity of rain now due, and frequently threatened, was expected to fall; and though urgently needed for tha root crops and grass, there might have beft RQM "MAP tO fee GOm. The Mondajr'a reports from London were discouraging enough, but business was not so heavy or deprMMd in the country, tfcmgh, as a whole, there has been abotit d dWliM of Is per qr. on the previous value of wheat. Accounts continue 80 conflicting that we must hear more of the delivery, to form < wriiable estimate, One thing, however, 18 certain-that in coflditton the samples will never have been anr- passed, so there will be ito impediment to their ready sale when sent up to market, though a few of the early gatherings of Tala- vera were got up rather damp. Tho forcing character of the weather will make a sudden and large demand for labour, and the new invention for gathering the corn quickly will be highly serviceable to the agricultural interests, as well as beneficial to the public, by securing the quality of the produce. In Southern Europe the wheat harvest is over, and this has proved very de- ficient in Portugal. In the north of France, Belgium, and Hot. land, rapid progress is being made, without great expectations as to the results; and in Germany the rye is falling undar the sickle. with favourable reports as to the yield. American ac- counts are decidedly against the yield. In Canada, not only has It lessened by drought, but the midge, in certain localities, has proved very destructive. The Federal States have also seriously suffered as regards the amount grown, but the quality turna out unusually fine, which will bo acme compensation, by the improv- ed yield and class of flour. Prices at New York have given way, through the reduction in the price of gold and tho cessation of the late panic.

LONDON- HOP MARKET.—MONDAV The transactions on our market have been more limited than of late; but from the bare supply of samples of fair quality, pri- ces have been fully maintained The accounts from the planta- tions are somewhat conflicting but upon the whole there is no material alteration to notice. The biue is improving .where healthy; but were there is any weakness, the protracted drought is operating unfavourably. There is a strong disposition for UlOuld in Mid-Kent and parts of the Weald, and without rain it is feared our present prospect, as regards the crop, will not be realised. The reports from the continent are, on the whole, mote favourable but in America the prospect is against half last year s produce

HOLLOW IY'S.PILLS are admirably adapted for the removal ot all diseases which have their origin in disorderd digestion. They are well suited to all classes and conditions, as competent to give comfort to the wealthy, as ease and strength to the poor. These Pills will be found an agreeable and efficient remedy by invalds- whose minds and bodies are enervated and exhausted from. exo cess, over anxiety, or foreign residence. Persons liable to bil- ious attacks should take these Pills; they cause each seuuee to be leas severe, the nausea and billiousness will be gradually removeu, and good digestion, withomplete health be regained. Toaddtothe merits of Holloway's medicine, no risk or danger attends its use and weekness follows its employment. There are perhaps few phases of disease, more generally dif- fused in all their various and painful forms than that known by the name of Rupture, and its attendant Viscreal protrusons, &C. And although its mechanical remedies have been uigii as numer- ous, they have nevertheless, been but partially succesful with but one, and that a most favourable exception. We here aUude Mr. White's Moc-Main Patent Lever Truss, ia which the inven- tor-a surgeon in most extensive practice—wisely abondoning the use of the old circular spring, has so happily combined his materials, as at once to produoe an Instrument, perfect in oper- ation, comfortable in wear, and praiseworthy economical in cost. The Truss is further alluded to in our advertising col- umns. SALVEO PEDFs.-At the present time, when 80 many travellers, tourists, and sportsmen suffer from tender feet, nothing will be found so soothing and efficacious as "Sstfveo Pedes," a lotion for the feet, which can be ob- tained of any chemist throughout the kingdom, andof A.
