Parochial Constables for the several parishes in the Petty-Sessional Division of Nant Cunway were* sworn in, with the exception of Llanrhychwyn, and one from Bettws-y-coed, who neglected to attend in obedience to the summonses, requesting their attendance to take the oath. Their worships, instead of inflicting a penalty this time, gave them another opportunity to come forward next Tuesday (25th), and intimated if they neglected to appear on that day, that penalties would be imposed un- der 5 and 6 Vic, chap. 102, sec. 13, a part of which we quote for the information of those who are qualified and may be chosen to serve the offices and might be igno- rant of the consequence of neglecting to attend, in order to be sworn Every person qualified and liable to serve, and cho- 8"n by the Justices to serve the office of Constable, and duly summoned to be sworn and take upon himself the said office, who shall refuse, or without reasonable cause to be allowed by the Justices, neglect to attend and be sworn as constable, or to find a qualified substitute: Penalty, on conviction before two Justices, not exceeding Ten Pounds.

Hughes, were charged by Sergeant H. D. Williams with being drunk and riotous at Bettws y coed. Fined 15s. each, in- cluding costs. Morris Williams was brought up in custody of the same officer, charged with stealing two traps, the pro. perty of Lord Willoughby d'Eresby. Mr. Griffith, who appeared for the prosecution, briefly stated the case, and called upon Sergeant Williams to give sufficient evidence to justify their Worships in granting a remand, in order that Griffith Owen, who was lately a game Keeper on the Gwydir Estate, but is now at Grimsthorp, might be brought forward to identify the traps. Remanded for seven days; bail being accepted for his appearance.
I MACHYNLLETH. I THE PATENT LIFE PRESERVING APPARATUS Great disappointment was experienced by the inhabi- tants of Aberdovey, the other day. owing to the non- appearance of the enterprising navigator, who purposed making an aquatic excursiou of several miles in a newly- patented apparatus intended for saving life during ship- wrecks and other casualities to which so large a number of our sea-girt islanders are exposed. Our readers at Aberdovey, and other places on the intended route of the enterprising patentee will have their disappointment modified when they are informed that if the experiment was not a perfect success, it was by no means a perfect failure; and we have reason to believe that the good folks who were disappointed, will shortly have another opportunity of witnessing the complete success of the experiment, which all philanthropists, informed of its objects, will anticipate with interest, and accord to the ingenious contriver their hearty sympathies and earnest wishes for success. The mechanician, who has eaayed a task so difficult, is Mr. John Rees, watchmaker, Machynlleth; and he has like many other sanguine and spirited experimen- talists, devoted a large proportion of his leisure time in devising, improving, and endeavouring to perfect an ap- paratus, which if successfully completed, must be con- sidered a desideratum of no ordinary character among the skilful and multifarious contrivances which modern ingenuity has suggested, in order to save life and mitigate physical sufferings. The apparatus I referred to, without attempting to give a full technical explanation of it, may be described as consisting of a water-proof covering for the body, the elasticity of which, is materially enhanced by air tubes, which can be in- inflated at the wearer's pleasure. It is light, so as to render it easy of transit; and it can be compressed into a small compass so as to facilitate that object. It can be readily adjusted, and is so buoyant that the wearer floats in a semi-recumbent position, par- tially on his back, at ease upon the watery pillow upon which he reclines his head, if wearied by a 'ong voyage. Beneath the back is an inflated air-pouch, which is, we presume the chief cause of the buoyancy of the dress. It may be compared in appearance, to the illustration in Pilgrim's Progress, of Christian, with his burden on his shoulders: only it is one lighter to be borne. It is provided with propellors, to secure rapid locomotion through the water,,when the wearer is disposed to make progress his speed being regulated by his own exer- tions. Mr. Rees felt so satisfied with the result of his la- bour, and that it was adapted for the purposes intended, that he determined boldly to exhibit its merits and de- fects to the public, and that in broad daylight, on their own favourite water. He publicly announced his no- vel experiment by means of placards throughout the district. The peculiarity and importance of the experi- ment of our determined fellow-townsman, induced a number of spectators to post themselves on various po- sitions along the banks of the river from Machynlleth to Aberdovey. Lady Vane, Lady Edwards, and a number of the principal inhabitants of the district were present on the occasion, as they felt much interested in the result. Mr. Rees, having equipped himself in his ingenious ha- biliments, launched himself boldly on the clear waters of the Dovey, which ran at that time pretty rapidly. He floated along in good style, apparently with facility and comfort, and proceeded for some short distance with ap- parent confidence in his handiwork, as well as in his safety. He was loudly cheered and applauded by the spectators; but unhappily he appeared to have lost his self-possession, which was probably caused by his anxiety, and his finding himself in an element to which he is by no means accustomed, being an indifferent swimmer. He accordingly altered his plan to proceed to Aberdovey, and landed for the purpose of transferring his apparatus to an adept, who was more accustomed to the treacherous element. An amphibious animal—a fisherman in the neighbourhood, named David Ellis, next donned the magic garment, plunged in, and pro- ceeded along at a glorious rate, paddling away like some sea monster of unknown genus, and no doubt strik- ing the fish with consternation at such a bold invasion of their element. The fisherman continued his course gaily for about a mile, when, by some means, he turned on his face, instead of maintaining the luxuriant semi- recumbent position, and at this juncture, some defect was evidently apparent in the apparatus. He, however, regained the shore, without evincing much incon- venience so that our readers at Aberdovey and else- where, have now a full explanation, and we trust a satis- factory one, too, of the reasons why they were unable to satisfy their curiosity in viewing the advent of the bold navigator, who fully proposes to pay them an early vi- sit when he has modified his complicated contrivance. We understand that a portion of the waterproof fabric was manufactured at Manchester, from designs prepared by Mr. Rees, who has expended much time and money in bringing his patent to its present state of perfection. The price of the dress, when manufactured, will be about X10 or £ 15. Earl Vane and several gentleman in the neighbourhood, have consented to purchase a suit each, if it should prove the thing it is intended to be, namely, an effective life preserver. Mr. Rees informs us of an ingenious magistrate, in the county of Glamorgan, who was most passionately ad- dicted to the gentle piscatorial craft, and who found in his rambles that rivers barred his progress. To remedy this evil, he devoted his constructive faculties to supply a convenience when placed in such predicaments. His persevering labours resulted in the production of an In- dia tubber paletot or light cloak, which in rough weather protected him from wind and rain, and which could be slung over his shoulder by a strap in fine weather. When inflated, this paletot was distended into a boat, which he used in crossing rivers, paddling himself with his hands. We can hope with the author of John Gilpin, under other novel circumstance, that when Mr. Rees does next ride that way (Dovey) may we be there to m.
LLANFECHELL. MOUNTAIN INCLOSURE -On the 13th inst, a large as- semblage--chiefly the inhabitants being residents on the common called Mynydd Mechell, situate in this pariah, met at the Crown Inn. As the concourse of persons were so great the meeting was adjourned and proposed to be held at the National Schoolroom for the purpose of examining their claims to the Common. R. Walleford Attree. Esq., London, the valuer, was the examiner, whose services were much appreciated by all assembled. It appears Mr. Attree's mission is to ascertain all those who have been twenty years in pos- session of their allotments. It is understood that all property occupied under that term will be confiscated, and it will be dealt with according to the powers stated in the Inclosure Commissioners' under the Act of Parliament, and that all other portions of the Common above twenty years, the Crown will claim. I'lie only landowner that was observed present whose land approxi- mates the Common was W. Bulkeley Hughes, Esq., of Plas Cocli.
BETUESDA. Last Monday—being Easter Monday—was observed ia this neighbourhood as a general holiday. Large numbers availed themselves of the new omnibus just started here and iu Bangor, to visit the latter place. The omnibus in question cannot fail to prove of immense tomveoienct) to the inhabitants of Bethesda and Bangor; and to Messrs. Hughes and Littler, the enterprising proprietors, too much praise cannot he given for thus catering for the accommodation of the public. It is to be hoped and expected they will i ecei ve at the hands of the latter that encouragement which they deserve. As may be expected, the cab proprietors of Bethesda finding that Othello's occupation is gone," are not particularly Alighted by the sight o( the new omnibus, and some of them have been heard to hold forth against it in not Tery complimentary terms.—It seems that the Bethesda- iM are now-a days inspired with the desire of inaugura- ting several other improvements. The possibility and even probability of having a new Town H all erected for the use of the place are now fairly canvassed among the inhabitants. Two public meetings in furtherance -of the movement have already been held at the Glan. oewen National Schools. Both meetings were presided over by the Kev. J. Morgan, Glanogwen, who dwelt upon the growing want experienced m Bethesda for a Town Hall, as well as for a new Market Hall. The rev. gentleman observed that Bethesda can boast of most of the essentials of a complete town. It has already a Board of Commissioners and Gas-works, what is now wanted is a good Town Hall At the second public meeting, Mr. Morgan mentioned three different plans through which the object in question might be com- passed. 1st, 'ty voluntary contributions. 2nd, By forming a kind of joint stock company. 3rd, lly con- necting the hall with the Board of Commissioners, and thus throwing the expense upon the ratepayers. The first plan was not deemed by the rev. gentleman feasible, the third he considered would be universally con- demned by the ratepayers consequently there was 110 a'tc-rna i e lrt't but to endtavuur to erect a now Town Hall upon the joint stock principle. After several per- sons had expressed themselves in favour of the socond plan, it was proposed by the Kev. R. Roberts, Carneddi, and seconded by Mr. W, J. Fany—" That this meeting being convinced of the great, want experienced in Be- thesda for a Town Hall, pledges itself in support of wli afcever practicable means may be adopted towards orectini,, one upon the principle of Joint Stock Conj- jianies." A working committee consisting of a number of the tradesmen, and some of the most. influential in- habitants of the place, was appointed to take under con- sideration the most effectual means towards securing the object in view. It ought to be stated that several of the speakers expressed it as their opinion that a commodious Market Hall in connection with the Town Hall was a si',e'lltcl IIOIt of the m tvement. A vote of thanks to the rev. chairman having been moved and seconded, the meeting dispersed.—The latest American news has created quite a sensation in this neighbour- hood. The majoiity of the Bethesda qnarrymen having from the commencement of this fratricidal struggle sympathised with the Federal cause, the news of the fall of Petersburg and the evacuation of Richmond oc- casioned considerable satisfaction and rejoicing. I must tell you, Mr. Editor, that these quarry men are not mean politicians—far from it I believe I can venture to affirm they are far more conversant in politics than any class of working men in the Principality. This is in a great degree owing to the practice which prevails among them of employing a good part of their leislll e time in discussing political topics. It is not at all a rare spectacle to behold a group of sturdy quarrymen seated during their dinner hour round one of their number, whilst the latter reads some newspaper article, the reading being not (infrequently interrupted by remarks and comments offered by one of the interested auditory. -Bethesda being, as is well-known, famous for the musical proclivities of its inhabitants, it may be sup- posed that the rumour which has been in circulation with reference to the probable conferring of Knighthood upon a certain celebrity has afforded considerable gra- tification to the musical amateurs of the place. Here I cannot refrain from expressing my disgust—equally felt bv many others—at the letters (I la mode de Bil- lingsgate that have appeared upon the subject in a con- temporary of yours. It is such pretentious and inter- meddling would-be literati as the writer of the blatant and frothy letters in question that succeed best in ex- posing 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 luch a defence by such a defender) against his assailants in the Orchestra, I can easily believe he exclaimed— 0 save me from my friends." May the gods save us from such literary bores as this egotistical twaddler, who has taken such "painful pains" and" laborious labour" (favourite expressions of our atithot) in rendering himself the laughing stock of all sensible readers of his unmeaning verbiage.—Corres- pondent.
CARNARVON. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The usual fortnightly meet ing of the Board was held on Saturday last. Present— Robert Jones, 'Esq., (in the chair), Messsrs Richard Hughes, Tho.nas Richardson, Robert Evans, Griffith Parry, Hugh Thomas, Robert Jones (Hafodycoed), Jno. Griffith, Win. Hnghes, Thomas Hughes, Thomas Jones, Humphrey Williams, John Jones (Tynycoed), Robert Jones(Tvddynbadin), John Jones (Gyfelog), John Jones (Tyddynwisgin), and Mr. George Bowness. On account of the advauced age of Mr. Joseph|Da- viea, medical officer of the Llanidan District, Dr. Maugham was to be requested to undertake the amputa- tion of the arm of John Williams, Merddyngwyn, Lhtu- idan. Mr. Davies, who had been requested, at the sugges- tion of the Poor Law Board, on account of his advanced age, to send in his resignation, applied to the Guardians to allow him to remain in charge of the district, until the end of next September quarter. The Guardians stated, he should in reply, be inform- ed, that they were reluctant to press upon him for his immediate resignation, but that public duty gave them Do alternative. A letter was read from Mr. Doyle, stating the diffi- culty he felt in undertaking the arbitration in a dispute between the Rev. D. Jeffreys and the Guardians, as to the amount of the ratable value of the Tithe Rental of St. Peters, Newborough, and suggesting that both par- ties should agree upon a statement of facts, and submit it to the opinion of the Poor Law Board. On the motion of Mr. Hugh Thomas, seconded by by Mr. Richard Hjjghes, the Guardians stated their readiness to act upon Mr. Doyle's advice, and directed that Mr. Jeffreys should be asked if lie was willing to do BO. Mr. Richard Hughes, the vice-chairman, moved, and Mr. Robert Jones, Hafodycoed, seconded, that the cor- dial thanks of the Board be presented to Robert Jones, Eaq" the chairman, for his kind and able conduct in the cl-iii- Litiriiig the past year, and his very great attention to the interests of the union. Unanimously affirmed. On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr. Robert Jones, Hafodycoed, it was unanimously passed that the cordial thanks of the meeting be presented to Messrs Richard Hughes and Thomas Owen, for their able services as vice-chairmen. Mr. Hughes proposed that the Clerk ought to have their warmest thanks, 's he was an officer that (leserved great praise for his ability, willingness, and prompt at- tention to every matter connected with the afliiirs of the Union. Mr. Richardsou seconded the motion. The Chairman stated that he also endorsed the senti- ments contained in it. Unanimously affirmed. On the motion of Mr. Richardson, seconded by Mr. Hugh Thomas, the Board unanimously voted their thanks to all the Relieving Officers, and the In-door Of- ficers for their efficient services during the year. On the motion of Mr. Richardson, seconded by Mr. John Griffith, the thanks of the meeting were also cor- dially given to the clergy, ministers, prayer-leaders, Sunday School teachers, and others who have attended to the spiritual condition of the inmates of the House doling the year. Mr Richard Hughes touchingly referred to the fact that the Board was going to lose the services of Mr. John Jones, Tyddymvisgin, who had been a Guardian almost since the commencement of the Union, and pro- posed that they record on their minutes a testimony of their esteem for Mr. Jones. The Chairman seconded the proposition, which was warmly assented to. Out-relief—Parochial C176 Os. 6d.; irremovable, £ 167 12s. tti, non-settled, £ 42 10s. 6d.

The officer stated that he had warned defen- dant several times before, but that on the 11th instant he had found the donkey again on the road leading to Pontfaen, in the parish of LJauwnda. The defendant said that he was very sorry, but that he could not help it, as somebody must have opened the gate of the field so that the donkey strayed from the field. He was fined 2s. 6d. and lis. costs. A isa tilt. -Elizabeth Jones v. Jane Evans.—Elizabeth Jones stated that June Evans came after her to a neigh- bpurs's house at Penisa'rwaen, and drew her hands ac- cross her face, striking her twice till the blood flowed, and breaking her bonnet -complainant's daughter pulled her away from defendant. Jane Jones, the daughter of prosecutrix, corroborated liei- niotlier's testimony. Ann Thomas on the other hand deposed that the first thing she saw at her house was Elizabeth Jones rising from a chair and going towards Jane Evans telling her if she had her will she would kill her. Jane Evans passed her quietly toward; the fire when the prosecutrix took hold of her by the hair of the head. Margaret Williams and Ellen Daniel corroborated the evidence of the last witness. Their worships dismissed the case. BOROUGH POLICE COURT, April 17th.—Before Thomas Turner, Esq. Stealing a Piece of Cloth.—Henry Anderton was charged by Police-sergeant Prothero with stealing a piece of cloth on the 11th instant from the shop of Mr. Owen Owens, draper, Bridge-street. Owen Owens deposed- l ama shopkeeper living in Bridge-street, Carnarvon. I was in my shop on Tues- day the 11th inst. I had cloth about the door. I saw .a man take a piece of cloth from the door, he put it on his shoulder. I followed him and overtook him oil Turf- square, and put him in charge of the police. The prisoner is the iiiin I overtook in Turf-squzire, and the cloth produced is my property, the same that was taken from my door, and which I found on prisoner at the time. Sergeant Prothero said—I am a sergeant of police in Carnarvon. The prisoner on another charge was brought into my custody. He told me that he had taken a bale of matress cloth from another shop in Castle-square, the Manchester House, kept by Mr. Hugh Owen. The piisoner told me that he had hid the matress cloth in a shed near the Barracks amongst some old timber. I went there and found it concealed. Mr. Hugh Owen deposed—I am a draper, and keep the London and Manchester House in Castle-square. The piece of tick now produced is very like the chaff tick I lost on Tuesday morning, and is of the same pat- tern and qualito as the one now produced by Sergeant Prothero. My private mark has been torn off'. The prisoner when asked what had he to say in his defence said he had nothing. Ilis worship committed him to the next quarter sessions upon both charges, and the prosecutors enter- ed into their own recognizances to appear then against him. Drunk and Disorderly.—J ohn Parry charged by P.C. Edward Jones of the above offence was fined 5s.and costs.
DENBIGH. SHOCKING ACCIDENT—THREE LIVES LOST, This town was shocked early on Tuesday morning last with the tidings of a fearful accident which occurred at the reservoir of the Denbigh Water Works, at Llewes- og, and by which three human lives were lost. The circumstances of the calamity are thus told :-It appears that a leakage had been discovered in the reservoir, and to remedy the same a deep trench was directed to be cut for the purpose of being puddled. The trench was made through a natural embankment rising gradually from the reservoir, extending in a direct line for about 30 yards, and afterwards turning almost at right angles to a length of about 20 yards. It measured something like 17 yards deep, 2J yards wide at the top, and seemed rather narrower at the bottom. It was propped by planks laid horizontally along the sides supported by others across the trench. The formation of the place consists of clay, gravel, and quicksand. The men had been engaged at the work for many months, and had nearly finished puddling to the turning point of the trench, when the accident took place. At six o'clock on Tuesday morning, five men were employed as usual in excavating,—the deceased men were inside digging, anl the two others conveying the material out by means of wheelbarrows. Just at seven o'clock, as one of the two was returning into the trench with his wheelbarrow, he observed the sides falling in with a heavy pressure from above, and he had scarcely given the alarm before the trench was totally closed, himself narrowly escaping from sharing in the sad fate of the three poor fellows who were at the furthest extremity buried alive. The sides gave way, it is supposed, as the men were remov- ing some of the props. Information of the catastrophe soon reached Denbigh (a distance of two miles), and in a very short time scores of people had arrived on the scene of the accident, all overwhelmed with anxiety to extricate the bodies with- out delay. The directors of the Water Company, viz., the Mayor, Dr. Turnout, Mr. Martin Smith, V.C.R., Mr. J. C. W. Edwards, Mr. R. Williams, Vale-street, M r J. C. IV. Ed%var d s, and Mr. Gold Edwards, promptly appeared on the spot, in a distressed state of mind, and they exerted them. selves in every possible way with a view of finding the unfortunate men. Mr. Duncan, of Liverpool, the en- gineer of the works, was telegraphed for, and that gen- tleman was at Llewesog before six in the evening, and rendered valuable service, About 30 or 40 men were employed by the Company at once to dig for the bodies, and they were kept at work alternately with others with increasing activity, day and night, but up to the time of going to press, we had not heard of their suc- ceeding iu finding them The names of the deceased men are—John Evans, of Denbigh, aged 35, unmarried; Jabez Roberts, of Den- bigh, aged 38, left a widow and three children; and Edward Roberts, of Rhewl, Prion, aged 48, left a widow and two children. We are glad to find that subscriptions have been started in aid of the bereaved families, and all sums will be gratefully received by Mr. E. George, County Court Office, Denbigh. The Denbigh String Band gave a concert la,t night (Friday) for the same objeci. It was originally intended fur the benefit of the Baud.
I FESTINIOG. CONCERT.—On Thursday evening, the 13tli inst., the Village Brass Band, assisted by a choir of vocalists, un- der the leadership of Mr. Robert Jones, gave a Concert at the New M arket Hall, Blaeuau, in aid of the funds of the former. The Band was led by Mr. Dickson, its instructor. The greatest interest was taken in the meet- ing by the inhabitants of Blaenau, who were most anxious to hear how the Village Band would acquit themselves as compared with the Quarries' Brass Band, which was started about the same time as the other, and we are glad to say that the performance looked upon, comparitively as well as absolutely, gave the greatest satisfaction. This sort of healthy rivalry will tend to stimulate both bauds to more vigorous exertions to excel one another, than which nothing can be more laudable. The hall was densely crowded. Mr. Davies, of Cae'r- blaidd, kindly consented to preside over the meeting, which he did in his usual interesting style. The short and pithy addresses, replete with humour and wit, which he delivered at intervals in the course of the pro- ceedings, greatly amused the audience. The programme was in two parts, with an interval of ten minutes be- tween them, and consisted of polkas, dances, Welsh airs, and glees, the latter being given by the choir. The first part closed with God bless the Prince of Wales, and the second part, as usual, with the National Anthem. During the ten minutes' interval we had some capital songs from Messrs. Bilby, Priug, and Roberts. Mr. Bilby gave the comic song, The Lazy Society," amidst roars of laughter. Mr. Roberts sang a Welsh senti- mental song with pleasing effect, and Mr. Pring followed with the favourite Welsh air, Glan medd'dod mwyu," which was well received by the audience. We thought we never heard the old song going better; though so much hackneyed, it had quite the charm of novelty about it. If we we were allowed to make one or two remarks by way of criticising, we would say in the first place that the programme was, in our opinion, much too long. It is no easy matter, under the most favour- able circumstances, to keep the attention of an audience from flagging for such a length of time as it would have taken this programme to be gone through. The other suggestion we wished to make was this. In an enter- tainment of a mixed character—vocal and instrumental —such as this was, we think it would improve the effect of the performance greatly if the choir struck up their pieces as soon as the band had finished theirs, and vice versa. Coming thus at once, the contrast would be more striking. We thought also the playing ought to have been more subdued but we have no doubt that by degrees, as they get more experienced, this defect will be removed. We mention these things as being, in our opinion, points desirable to be attended to. Taking the performance as a whole, it was a highly creditable one to all the parties who took part in it. The progress the band has made in so short a time, and in the face of so many disadvantages, is truly wonderful. They were fortunate at first in getting the services of such an able instructor as Mr. Dickson, who has been most assiduous in his attention to train them, and the result of this their second public entertainment prove him to be also a successful teacher. The ohairman in his con- eluding remarks heartily congratulated the band and choir, stating that they had far exceeded his expecta- tions; and added that the two bands we have now among us were an honour to the neighbourhood. He hoped that, as the movement had been warmly sup- ported by the gentlemen of the neighbourhood, some of them being magistrates, the members would be careful at all times to conduct themselves with propriety. We hope this advice will not be lost upon them. The even- ing being brilliantly fine the band played several pieces along the way in going and returning. LECTURB -On Monday, the 10th inst., Mr. Robert Parry (Robyn Ddu Eryri) delivered a lecture on the Advancement of the Working Man," at the new Market Hall, Rev. LI. Jones, Bethania, in the chair. Considering the object of the lecture and the celebrity of the lecturer, we were rather surprised to see such a small audience. The lecture was based upon the open- ing sentence, viz.That the Almighty had inseparably connected the happiness of man with the performance of his duty. The proceeds were to be devoted in aid of the funds towards the support of the widow of the late Huw Tegai. Mr. Parry gave another lecture the following night on Sings of genius," at the Rhiwbryf- dir Independent chapel.
PWLLHELI. BOARD oir GUARDIANS.—ITie usual fortnightly meet- ing of this Board was held on Wednesday. Present— B. T. Ellis, Esq., Messrs Wm. Watkins and Rd Jones, and 31 elected Guardians; also Owen Evans, Esq., ex- otficio. It appeared that a balance of jESt 4s. was in the hands of the Treasurer in favour of the Union Mr. Evan Evans proposed that B. T. Ellis, Esq., be appointed chairman for the ensuing year. Mr. Wm. Watkins seconded tho proposition, which wis carried. Mr. Isaac Morris proposed, and Mr. Win. Thomas seconded, that Messrs. Wm. Watkins and ltd. Jones he appointed vice chairmen, Mr. Wm. Watkins to take the precedence. Carried unanimously Finance Committee for the ensuing year—Messrs. T. Morris, Evan Evans, Hugh Jones, Wm. Thomas, H. Thomas, anrt R. Jooes.

John Owen, S. 0. Priestley, Esq., Owen Evans, Esq., and Capt. Carre". Number of inmates in the house, 41 corresponding ditto last year, 52.
PENTREVOELAS. CONCERT BY THE CHURCH CHOIR.—On Monday even- last, the members of the Church Choir, assisted by others from the neighbourhood, gave an entertainment in the National School, the proceeds of which were to be given to the widow of the late Mr. Hugh Charles, who had been a member of the above choir for upwards of forty years. The Rev. O. Jones and Mrs. Jones alternately presided at the harmonium. The programme consisted of well-selected pieces, and at the close of each the per- formers were loudly cheered. As to the execution of the pieces, and the composition of the Choir, we may state that the general effect was excellent, though, per- haps, the tenor and alto parts were scarcely, strong enough. The Rev. T. Williams' (Llanrwst) rendering of "Gwenith Glvyn" evidenced a pleasant and useful voice and much good taste. He was obliged to sing it again. The rendering of ClN-ch-,iii Llanfyllin," by Mr. Hugh Roberts, received a most enthusiastic encore, who sang instead Gwendolen Pugh." which was loudly cheered. Beautiful Star," sang by the Revds. 0. Jones and J. Pritchard, Mr. E. Thomas, Mrs. Pritchard, and Miss A. Roberts, was certainly the best sung, and was deserv- edly encored; but they did not repeat it. Mr. Griffith Owen, in his song, "The Four Bachelors," was loudly encored, but as it was getting late, he declined singing it again. Everyone seemed delighted with the enter- tainment, and the concert, taken as a whole, was a great success (without reference to the object for which it was given-iii itself a worthy one), and the pieces sung gave a considerable amount of satisfaction.
POETMADOC. RBOATTA.—On Easter Monday, a regatta for small craft was appointed to take place in Portmadoc, and a good deal of preparation had been made for the event. The day, however, was very unpropitious, as there was not a capful of air, and the regatta was in consequence postponed until Monday next. THE TRADE OF THE PORT. 'The slate trade, as usual, continues to be very brisk, the only difficulty being to supply orders. The railways, in every direction, are progressing very rapidly, and they employ a great num- ber of men but the building trade, we are sorry to say, remains at a complete stand-still, for reasons we have before stated. EASTER MONDAY.—Easter Monday is always a grand holiday in the Port, and this year it was kept up" in very grand style. A regatta was to have taken place, and t at races; clubs walked in procession; and a lite- rary meeting was held in the Independent (new) Ch-tpel, which was very numerously attended. In fact, the town was crowded during the whole of the day, and though the shops were empty, the public-houses were quite full. Good Friday is not much regarded-Easter Mon- day is. THE GLASLYN RIVER.-We are glad to say that good sport is to be obtained in this river in the present sea- son, and good fish are very abundant, owing, no doubt, to the care with which it is preserved by the conserva- tors. A few days ago, the Rev. T. Ll. Kyffin succeeded in hooking and landing a finq salraon, weighing 14 lbs. and on Tuesday last, Colour-sergeaut Thos. Jones Wil- liams caught a trout, weighing 4 lbs., in capital condi- tion. This is good news for our piscators, and our tour- ist friends should make a note of it. LITERARY MEETING.—Theannual literary meeting was held in Salem (Independent) Chapel on Monday last, which was well attended by persons from all parts of the district. There were, in fact, three meetings—in the morning, afternoon, and evening; Mr. J. Phillips (Te- gidon) presiding in the morning, the Rev. William Jones in the afternoon, and the Kev. W. Ambrose in the evening. The morning meeting was commenced at 10 a.m., by a solo on the harmonium, after which the Chairman delivered an address. Then followed recita- tions, duett and other singing, and poetical compositions, some of which were of considerable merit, for each of which there were prizes awarded. Admission was by ticket, to defray expenses. The following englyn on The Cradle," which won the prize, was the produc- tion of Mr. W. Roberts, (Goronwy), Portmadoc :— Y cryd hoff, llawn cariad yw-ei iesin Gynwysiad digyfryw; Uivch ei ben seinia menyw Dlos hun-gan i'w baban byw. The meeting throughout was a great success in every respect. THE NEW VOLUNTEER SHOOTING RANOE.—Some time ago, we intimated that the railway across Traeth Mawr necessitated the making of a new range for the Volunteer shooting, as the line crosses the present ground at the farther end, which would scarcely do. A new range on the splendid level ground of the Traeth had consequently to be marked out, and as there is a certain amount of responsibility attached to it, Captain Mathew deemed it only prudent to ask the War Office to despatch an Inspector to attend and approve of the ground. On Tuesday last, Captain Nares, of Carnarvon, attended by the Adjutant, Captain Peel, Mr. E. Breese (as the representative of D. Williams, Esq., Deadraeth Castle), and Captain Mathew, inspected the new shooting range, and the Inspector expressed himself highly de- ran g?d with it, as it is even superior to the old range, which was admitted to be the very best in Wales. All that is required now, therefore, is a warrant of approval from the War Office, and that is expected to arrive in a day or two. On Saturday evening last the Company was inspected by Captain Peel, and the men were put through marching drill. This was performed so satis- factorily that the Adjutant highly complimented the Company, and remarked that he did not think the marching could be surpassed by a regiment of the line, and that it was most creditable to all concerned-officers and men. We are likewise much pleased to have to state that the Band is progressing in a wonderful man- ner, and that, too, without their having any paid master to teach them. TESTIMONIAL TO SIR EDWARD POORE.-For some three or four years past, the Hendreddu Slate Quarry, near Brynkir. has been, under the management of Sir Edward Poore, who is now leaving the quarry and the neighbourhood, as many of our readers doubtless may know. Sir Edward, by his uniform kindness and up- right conduct secured the warm attachment of all the workmen, who, when they learnt that he was about to leavo them, expressed their sorrow and regret in no measured terms-one of the workmen exclaiming (in Welsh) that though a strict" master, he had always proved himself to be a very upright" one. As a small token of their respect and regard, the workmen of the quarry, of their own free will, and without the know- ledge of Sir Edward, made a subscription amongst them- selves, and purchased a massive gold telescope pencil and pen case. On Tuesday morning last, they sent a message to him, requesting his attendance at the quar- ry and when he went there, much to his astonishment, he found that he was to be presented with a testimonial by the men. The presentation was made, on behalf of the workmen, by Mr. W. Williams, superintendent of the quarry, who expressed the great sorrow which they all felt at his leaving them; and their deep appreciation of his past kindness, and also of that of Lady Poore, and especially to the poor men who had met with accidents in the qtiarry-kindnem which the workmen would never forget. He had been an upright master, and one who always kept his word, though a strict OUN &Qd they felt very deep regret at his leaving them. Sir Edward, who appeared quite overwhelmed at this spontaneous proof of the high estimation in which he was held by the workmen, briefly expressed his thanks, and said that, coming from such a source, and under the circumstances, he prized the little present more than he should if it were worth a thousand guineas, and given to him by less disinterested parties. The following is a copy of the in- scription engraved on the pencil-case Sir Edward Poore, Bart. From his grateful workmen at the Hen- dreddu Slate Quarry, on his leaving them. April, 1865."
RUTHIN. COUNTY COURT.—The bi-monthly County Court for this district was held in the County Hall, on Monday last, before R. V. Williams, Esq., Judge. About 30 small cases were disposed of. Morris v. Prest,)n.I'he plaintiff sued the defendant for jEl 2s. 6d., balance of wages alleged to be due for killing rabbits. Mr. Lloyd appeared for Mr. Preston, and suggested that the case should be referred to the Registrar, it be- ing merely a matter of accounts. His HONOUR thought it was too trivial to be referred to the Registrar, and having questioned both parties as to the dates and figures of their respective books, he gave judgment for defendant. Edward Williams v. M. Anne Williams, Penycoed.— Another action for balance of wages ( £ 1 4s.) due for la- bour done on defendant's farm. Mr. Louis appeared for the defence. Miss Williams stated that she hired plaintiff (a lad of about 19 years of age) at the rate of £ 9 10s. per annual. In October last he became quite unmanageable, dis- obeyed her orders, and one day he even struck her with his fist on the breast. She then paid him £ 3 10s., and sent him off the premises. Plaintiff claimed 6 mouths wages.. Witnesses were called to-corroborate the testimony of Miss Williams. His HOXOUK gave judgment for the defendant, and remarked that she might have withheld every penny from the plaintiff, inasmuch as he had forfeited his wages through disobedience.
ST. ASAPH. THE MAJORITY OF WILLIAM GRENVILLE WILLIAMS, ESQ. A public meeting was held on Thursday evening, the 20th instant, in the Vestry-room, St. Asaph, for the purpose of taking into consideration the be.stmode of celebrating the coming-of-age wf William Grenville Wil- liams, Ksq eldest son of Sir Hugh William, Drt., Bodelwyddan, which bke, place on the 30th of next, month. There were preent-Rev. W. Hicks Owen. chairman; Capt. Thomas, Dr. Roberts, Dr. Lodge, Dr, G. W. Roberts, W. M. Crowther, Esq David Parry- Esq, Faenol Fawr; H. J. Fairelough, Esq., Ihos. Ro. berts, Esq., Glandwr; Rev. Hancock Lewis Messrs. E, Roberts, Partington, R. Roberts, Chas. Mansbridge- E. Griffiths, H. Parry, Roberts, chemist, Hughes, dra per, W. Easterby, John Conway, WiUains, saddler, John Williams, M'Manus, Hughes, builder, John Jones, re- lieving officer, Will. Kelly, Charles Hughes, Francis Ed- wards, &c. Letters were read from Mr. Wyatt, and Mr. Roberts, of Rose Hill, apologising for non-attendance, and ex- pressing their titmost willingness to co-operate in the festivities. The meeting was convened by circulars, issued by Mr. Edward Roberts, and The Chairman said the inhabitants of St. Asaph were indebted to Mr. Roberts for initiating this movement. (Hear, hear.) Sir Hugh Williams, he added, was a large landowner,—he was, so to speak, the magnet of the neighbourhood—and it was a great thing that they should sympathize with him on an event of such impor- tance and interest to himself and family, namely—the coming-of-age of his eldest son, kVm. Grenville Williams, Esq., who would then attain the age of manhood, when he should be in a position to enjoy all the privileges of a citizen of England. He felt favourable to some pub- lic demonstration on the joyous event, because it evinced a genial, neighbourly, and Christian spirit, and would be the means of binding all classes heartily together. (Ap- plause.) After a deal of conversation, the following resolutions were unanimously passed:— 1. That subscriptions be raised for celebrating the ma- jority of Wm. Grenville Williams, Esq. The money to be spent in entertaining and regaling the poor people and children of the parish of St. Asaph; also for carrying on a few rural and ataletic sports. 2. That a dinner be held in one of the hotels in the city, and that the Lord Lieutenant of the County be re- spectfully invited to preside, and the County and Borough Members to act as Vice-Presidents, on the oc- casion. 3. That a Committee be formad to earry out the tie tails of the foregoing resolutions, consisting of-Dr. Ro- berts, Dr. Lodge, Mr. Parry, Faenol Fawr, Mr. Edward Griffiths, Gwernigron, Mr. Roberts. Glandwr, Mr. Eas- terby, Mr. Roberts, druggist, Mr. Fairelough, and Mr. Partington-Mr. Edward Roberts to act as hon. sec., and Messrs. Davies and Roberts, druggists, hon. trea- surers. A subscription was opened in the room, and every. one present made most liberal promises, amounting to a total of 1:25. On the motion of Dr. Roberts, seconded by Cap- tain Thomas, a cordial vote of thanks was accorded to the reverend chairman, and the meeting afterwards terminated.
THE VISIT OF THE KING OF THE BELGIANS TO ENG- LAND.—The continental journals continue to speculate as to the cause of the visit which the King of the Belgians is now making to the English Court. Some even state that France proposes to incorporate a portion of Belgium with- in a short time others, again, wildly assert that there is a project of an alliance between France and Prussia at the cost of the Belgic nation, and that his Majesty has jour- neyed to England with no other view than that of avert. ing the tineatened danger; but a Vienna correspondent claims to have discovered the grand secret-that the visit is simply relating to the projected marriage of the Princess Helena of England to the Hereditary Prince Ernest Augustus of Hanover. _n

I Untkd$ and fitiro. REVIEW OF THE BRITISH COHN TRADE DURING THE PAST WEEK. With another week's continuance of fine weather beyond the calculation of any of the prophets, the effect upon vegetation since April opened upon us has been immense, as well as nearly instantaneous. Spring, so long in coming, appears to have neen distanced by summer, and all nature seems to have clapped her hands. The fears of the alarmists have partially subsided. Holders of light lands, who had fared the worst, had no doubt reason for being loud in their complaints, but the drill may fill up gaps in time for a crop though mixed samples are not the best, and there is plenty of time for tillering where the plants have been thinned, while the complete pulverization of the soil by repeated frosts, will transcend in its effects the most diligent application of the harrow or the hoe. As respects legitimato wheat soils, we mean the olaya and heavy loams, the prospects are now reported to be as good as usual, and even the fens Axe very promising. As April, however, ought to be showery, we nay yet verge upon drought but this would only seriously Wl upon Spring oorn. tiu mol&tiue of the tabioil ot £ ngUuul bdug generally suB ;ient for whe?t in the driest seoson Howe.e?' hare no rMton w tMpect the goodneM of Providen" who" be our deserts; *nd, as the Lent Mm has been hitherto w<n or in, let us hope that hrinen will have a plentiful galh:n M all kinds of p?n.
