RHYL. I A FIRE ENGINE PRESENTED TO THE TOWN.—James Taylor, E-q., has brought glad tidings to Rhyl within the past week. A movement was started here some months ago to obtain a fire engine for the use of the town and neighbourhood, but it was somewhat thrown aback in consequence of want of funds. Mr. Taylor, however, has informed the Commissioners that the liir- mingham Fire Alliance Company are prepared to fur- nish them with a splendid fire engine, with the usual appliances, if they will undertake to find room to keep it in. This certainly is an extremely moderate proviso, and the Commissioners are only too glad to comply with it. A TOWN CLOCK WANTED.—Strange to say, there has never been a Town Clock in Rhyl. A town is somehow friendless without such an acquisition, and time appears wearisome and deceiving in the absence of a prominent reliable standard to denote its never failing progress. A sojourner is struck with astonishment and even with disgust, when he finds the fashionable watering-place of Rhyl cannot boast of a town clock! But we rejoice to understand that it is contemplated to remove this detect. Mr. Hilditch, one of the town commissioners, who deserves some meed of praise for his zeal pro bono pulilico, has suggested that the money already sub- scribed towards a fire engine be devoted, by consent of the subscribers, to buy a town clock. Now the money foi the fire engine is not needed, we heartily trust this sensible suggestion will be carried out, so that the want of i town clock will no longer be a blemish on the cha- racter of Rhyl. CONCERT.—Mr. Argent, of Rhyl, gave a grand con- cert at the Town Hall on Monday evening last, assisted by Mr. Bradberry, Mr. Hunt, Herr Redner, Miss Rowe, and Miss Fletcher, of Liverpool. Tne attendance, we understand, was but moderate. The singing gave much satisfaction, and was loudly applauded. MORE PICK-POCKETS.—This town has recently been pestered by a gang of the slight-of-hand fraternity. Two of them, named respectively John Anderson, Southwark, aged 21, and Ellen Hunter, Birkenhead, aged 22, were taken into custody on Saturday evening, at the Railway Station, on the arrival of an excursion from the" black country," by detective-officer Charles Cotton, who is in the employ of the London and North Western Railway Company. The female was caught with her hand in the pocket of an old lady. Both were taken before the magistrates on Monday. Ellen was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, with hard labour; and John was discharged, warned, however, to quit the town with all the haste at his command. IMPORTANT SALE OF FREEHOLD ESTATES IS NORTH WALEs.-Anothor valuable portion of the Mostyn Es- tate, in Flintshire and Denbighshire, was submitted to public sale by M essrs, Leifchild and Cheffins, of Moor- gate-street, London, on Tuesday, the 16th in?t., at the Town-hall, Rhyl. The particulars of sale comprised 128 lots, including the fine farms of Maesmynan, Caer- wys Hall, and Trefraith, nearly the entire borough town of Caerwys, with rich accommodation iands round the town, expensive woods, and plantations; mills, pub- lic-houses, &c. The large hall was completely filled with a respectable company, and at 1 a.m. the auc- tioneer (Mr. Cheffins) put up the estates in one lot at £ 70.000. The biddings were spirited, and the property was speedily knocked down at 985,000 (including tim- ber) to Hugh Jones, Esq., of Wood-street, Cheapside, London, who was greeted as the purchaser by the hearty cheers and congratulations of the company.
