RUTHIN. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The following were present at the Board of Guardians on Monday last :James Maurice, Esq., chairmau; Joseph Peers, Esq., vice- chairman; Messrs. J. J. Bancroft, J. IV. Lloyd, Henry Grantham, Robert Parry, Hugh Hughes, Kevds. John Griffith, David Roberts, E. J. Oweu, R. J. Owen, and Captain Wynne Price. Coi-i-espondeizee.-Tliesubjoined letter was forwarded to the Board from the Poor Law Board "Wrexham Union, March 14th, 1865. My Lord aiJd Gentlemen,—-John Moult, with a wife and one child, have lately come into the township of Tryddyn, in this Union, and become chargeable. At the hearing of the application, the Guardians ascertained that this family had been living iu the parish of Llan- ferras, in the Huthin Union, and that the relieving of- ficer of that place relieved them, and then told them they must go to Tryddyn, in this Union, the man's sup- posed place of settlement. The Guardians of this Union desire to complain of this irregularity on the part of the relieving officer of Llanferras. I am, yours, &c., "JOHN BURT, Clerk. The Poor Law Board." The Poor Law Board requested that the observations of the Guardians on the subject, and an explanation of the conduct of the relieving officer, be sent to them. The relieving officer was called before the Board, and he stated that he did not tell the man to go to his own settlement. Relief was discontinued because his wife had said they did not want weekly relief, but a little help to purchase a donkey-cart. Rev. John Griffith said a subscription had been made to enable Moult to buy the cart, and it was thought be was abl.> to support himself. Mr. Peers thought the officer had acted rightly and this also seemed to be the general opinion of the Board. The officer was directed to put in writing what he had said iu reference to the case, to be sent to the Poor Law Board. Finance,-Out-relief during past fortnight, X199 2s. 6d.

THE CORPORATION AND LOCAL BOARD.-Audit of Ac' coitnt,i.-On Monday last the auditors—Mr. Challorf and Mr. Robert Williams—proceeded to the audit of these accounts, at the Tre tsurer's office, in Ruthin. The ac- counts of the Local Board were passed but an item in the Corporation accounts was found to be incorrect, and the auditors appended the following note to their report: -iioroityh of Ruthin.—The foregoing accounts for the half-year ending 1st of March, 1865, were laid before the auditors by the treasurer, on the 27th day of March, 18G5, for the purpose of being examined and audited. The auditors draw attention to the first payment on the 10th of October last, of XIOO, being cash advanced to the Town Clerk, as alleged, to take the necessary steps for obtaining an A ct of Parliament. The Treasurer pro- duced the order of the Mayor and two members of the Council, countersigued by the Town Clerk, for the pay- ment of the money, as well as the Town Clerk's receipt foi. the, sttvie. But no account was produced shewing to what particular expenses the money was applied. It does not appear, either, that the Corporation, acting as such, had taken any steps towards obtaining an Act of Parliament, nor that they had any power to apply the Corporate funds to any such purpose. The Treasurer does not seem to have had the whole money in hand when the payment was made, and the sums of 15s. 7'1. and 10s for interest and commission, have arisen in the advance made by him. And it also appeared that the Corporation were and are still indebted in the sum of of £ G00 ou mortgage of the whole of their estate. The auditors finding that the said payments of CIOO, 15s. 7d., and 10s., to be incorrect, have refused to pass the same, or to sign these accounts." PENDUEF CIUPEL,-An interesting meeting was held in this chapel, on Tuesday evening last, to celebrate the opening of the Haimonium,"—a very handsome instrument, we believe, of the vallie of £50, recently purchased by subscription, to assist in the praises of re- ligion in the place. The audience was very numerous. The oriinont Welsh musician, Rev. E. Stephen, of Tan- ymariau, near Bangor, was specially engaged for the oc- casion. The meeting was conducted as fullows ;-1.

An address on Chanting, by Mr. Stephen. The rev. gentleman dwelt upon the desirability of musi- cal instruments in places of worship, and warmly advo- cated chanting as the most simple and easy mode for a congregation to sing worthy of the sanctuary. Two ef- fective illustrations of his views were given by the Choir, by singing a chant in the Minor (Rev. E. Stephen) on l's. lxxvii., and another chant (Gregorian) on Matt. v. 2 -12. 10.
