BETHESDA. Lut MMagy-1 )0iug Easter Monday—was observed j_ neighl)oui nood as a general holiday. Large numbers availed < hemaelvee of the new omnibus just started tere and it Bangor,to visit the latter place. The 0umibus ia .>n cannot fail to prove of immeDse _<lDioM" tø.the inhabitants of Bethesda and Bangor; to Messrs. H ughes and Littler, the enterprising proprietors, too a ueh praise cannot be given for thus catering for tlie.« icominodatiwa of the public. It is to be 1I"1><!1i and ear !cted they will teceive at the hands of the latter that en couragement which they deserve. As .1.1 be expected, the cab proprietors of Bethesda finding tkzt 11 0 titellos e- 'eupation is gone," are not particularly deKghted by the aight of the new omnibus, and some of them have been heard to hold forth agaiqgt it in not very conioliule" ry tei-iiia. --It seeiusthat the Bethesda- fee* are now-a-da ,'s inspired with the desire of inaugura- ting several oth< r improvements. The possibility and „ aim probability of having a new Town Hall erected Cor the use of ft e place are now fairly canvassed among the ighabitaiita. Two public meeting. in furtherance of tHe ;movelaw t have already beeu held at the Glan- orwea S-atioiud Schools. Both meetings were presided aer by the JEfe v. J. Morgan, Glanogwen, who dwelt upon the gruwi ti); want experienced in Bethesda for a Town Hall, at t ell as for a new Market Hall. The rev. gentleman oleo ve(I that Bethesda can boast of most of tke essential J of a complete town. It has already a Board of Corn iiissioners and Gas-works, what is now vuiteJ. is <>d Town Hall. At the second public meeting, Mr. lorgan mentioned three different plans through whicl the object in question might be coin- nailed- Ist, 'iy voluntary contributions. 2nd, By (urcaing a kim I of joint stock company. 3rd, By con- ■efltine the hi 11 with the Board of Commissioners, and thus throwing the expense upon the ratepayers. The • 4rå plan ?? lot deemed by the rev. gentleman feasible, the third ha considered would be universally con- deauted by tl e ratepayers consequently there was no Lltalw-ive let but to endiavour to erect a new Town Hall upon the joint stock principle. After several per- sons htd expr essed themselves in favour of the seeond plan, it was f 'oposed by the Hev. R. Hoberts, Carneddi, 2MA seeond'd by Mr. W. J. Pany-" That this meeting being convie !ed of the great want experienced in Be- for a Town Hall, pledges itself, in support of whatever im :cticable means may he adopted towards aeeting one upon the principle off Joint -Stoek Com- puriea." A working committee consisting of a number of ib", tr)Kt« men, and some of the mo"t influential in- habitants of the place, was appointed to take under con- j ^deration If le most effectual means towards securing1 the object i ) view. It ought to be stated that several ] ot the spa kers expressed it as their opinion that coonuodii'tti Market Hall in connection with the Town JUI was a sine qua non of the movement. A vote of. ALkLakii to the rev. chairman having been moved and: jeeoaieil, II Je meeting dispersed.-The latest American bi,,4 < created quite a sensation in this neighbour- s Th 0 iuajuiity of the Belhesda quarrymen having' from the, cmuneiicement of this fratricidal struggle .jy*ipatlii» ,d with the Federal cause, the news of the, iiB of Pto ;ersburg and the evacuation of Richmoud oc-1 c jaaderable satisfaction and rejoicing. I must itl) yrai, Mir. Editor, that these quarrymen are not, aman ,HIli!. icians-far from it. I believe I can venture ta Affirm A ^y Are far more conversant in politics than amy class of working men in the Principality. This is in a great degree owing to the practice which prevails, axiong them,-of emphying B good fmrt of their leisuie titM in AiActisAng political topics. It is not at all a rare: zW3ctacle to behald a group of sturdy quarrymen seated dtring their (firmer hour round one of their number, nuvt, the latter reads some newspaper article, the -maing"being not (infrequently interrupted by remarts; M9 comments offered by one of the interested auditory. Bethesda being, as is well-known, famous for the Haaical proclivities of its inhabitants, it may be sup- pGled that the rumour which has been in circulation mrd reference to the probable conferring of Knighthood vpnn a certain celebrity has afforded considerable gra- tification to the musical amateurs of the place. Here- I cannot refrain from expressing my disgnst-equally felt bv manv others—at the letters u hi mode de Bil- higik;tte that have appeared upon the subject in a con- tenparary of yours. It is such pretentious and iuter- BMddliug would-be literati as the writer of the blatant ad frothy letters in question that succeed best in ex- fneiag Wales and its people to the ridicule of the stranger. If Mr. Brinley Richards ever perused this bombastic tautology penned with the ostensible object of defending him (as if Mr. Richards needed su-ch a defence by stick a defender) agaiust his assailauts in the Orctalru, I cane-asily believe he cxclaimed- 0 save me from my friends." May the gods save us from such literary bores as this ■•egotistical twaddler, who li;w taken such "painful pains" aid "laborious labour" (favourite expressions of our jMithoi) in rendering himseli the laughing stock of all aenstltie readers at his unmeaning verbiage.—Corres-' fondetA.
