LIVERPOOL. I MR. T. D. MORRIS S HARP ENTERTAINMENT.—On Wednesday evening 3fr. T. D. Morris gave an entertain- ment at the Concert Hall, Lord Nelson-street, to a large and select audience. He was ably assisted by Miss Bennett, who sang Sweet spirit hear my prayer," with great expression, and which was deservably encored. Llew Llwyfo was also announced to sing, but Mr. Morris had to appologise for his non-attendance, and informed the audience that he had engaged Mr. T. J. Hughes to supply his place. That gentleman, who has modestly worked his way to be principal basso at our concerts here, saug the songs and duetts which had been placed for Uew with good effect, and were rapturously encoied. The" Gadlys" was not sung so spiritedly as we should have wished, but as we understand Mr. Hughes had to sing at sight it was not to be wondered at. The desert was & fine pieca of declamation, and his fine bass voice was greatly adwived, and was perfect in point of taste, power, and finish. The little vocalist Miss Agneø Emily Morris delighted the audience with her singing of The Royal Music." Jfa. Jferrw had alf# 40 chorus conducted by Mr. Mills, who sang several choruses very creditably. We must not omit a stringed band, who in conjuction with the chorus, were very effective. Mr. P. Hughes and Mr. Roberts sang a duett of Hattins, While old time rolls gaily on," very well. Mr. Morris was as usual quite at home with his harp solos, which greatly pleased. Mr. Burnett presided at the piano, and the accompaniments were carefully played by him. The entertainment was a great stiecess. I
PENRHYN DEUDRAETH. I PETTY SESSIONS, Thursday, April 27-Before G. Cas- son, Esq., chairman, and Wm. Cawon, Esq. Drii.nk.enne,is. -David Rowlands, hawker, wae-charged with being drunk and disorderly at Penrhyn, on the 2oth inst. The charge was proved by P.C. Metcalfe.-Fined -2s. 6d. and costs. Bastardy. -Catherine Williams v. David Evans.— These parties, who live at Blaenan, Festiniog, settled their little" matter out of court. Drunkenness.—Mr. Hugh Jones, landlord of the Com- mercial Hotel, Blaenau, summoned a man named Owen Morris, a miner, for being drunk and disorderly, and also with refusing to leave the said Hotel when ordered to do so, on the 15th instant,-tiie defendant, it ap- pears, being but too well known tethe police for similar eflences. The defendant did not appear. The service ot tne summons was proved by P.C. Wm. Roberts. The charge was proved by Mr. Hugh Jones, the land- lord. Fined 10s. and9s. 6d. casts; in default, 7 flays im- prisonment. Parish Constableg.-Parish constables for the several parishes comprised within the Penrhyn Division were sworn in, and appointed in the usual way. < Selling Beer without a Licrnøe-Robert Owen, Maen- offerin, Blaenau, was summoned by P.S. John Lewis, on a charge of selling beer without a license, on his pre- mises, on the 26th Feb. last. Mr. Thos. Jones, Portmadoc (for Mr. J. H. Jones) ap- peared for the defendant. Griffith Williams, Croesa, was first called, who proved to having purchased two shillings worth of beer from the defendant on the day named in the indictment. He also proceeded to state that he had bought beer of the defendant since that date, but he was stopped by the defendant's advocate, who said such evidence was irrele- vant to the charge. Several other witnesses were called for the prosecu- tion, the evidence of whom was of a similar character, some of whom, it would seem, had part of the beer so purchased. Mr. T. Jones, for the defence, said he had been in- structed to deny the charge altogether, as the defendant never did on the day in question, or on any other day, sell beer as he was charged with doing. It was not a case preferred by the police, but by Griffith Williams, and out of spite against the defendant. Griffith Williams had formerly been a lodger with the defendant, and he left with a small sum owing for his lodgings, for which eventually the defendant threatened to sue him if he did not pay the balance owing to him. On this, Griffith Williams trumped up the present charge. Mr. Jones then said that in cases where several lodgers were in one house, it was often a custom to purchase a barrel of beer at once, to save them going to a public-house, and it was common to them all. Should a friend call in, it was very likely they would give him a glass of beer, which they had a right to do and possibly it was so in the present instance. At all events, the receiving of money by the defendant rested solely on the evidence of the witness, Griffith Williams, who had been brought before their Worships, on a previous occasion, on a charge of threatening to murder his wife; whilst, on the other band, hia client was a honest, steady, industrious workman, which he was prepared to prove by evidence. It had been said that a witness saw the defendant on the day in question; whilst he (Mr. Jones) should pro- duce a certificate from Dr. Williams, of Rhiw, which stated that the defendant and his son were both suffer- ing from scarlet fever at the time. He would submit to them that no charge had been proved, and that inde- pendent of the answer to it, and he should bring a lod- get, who would state that he never saw the defendant receiving any money for beer, though he had seen him giving some. After this witness had given his evidence, the magis- trates decided that a breach of the law had taken place, and that they had no alternative but to enforce the pe- nalty of £ 5, with costs. They would have reduced the penalty, but they had no power to do so. Fined £ 5, and 22s. costs. Drunkenness.—Wm. Roberts, of Ynysfawr, was char- ged by P.C. Wm. Richards with being drunk and dis- orderly at the Pengwern Arms Hotel, Festiniog, on the 3rd of April, and likewise with refusing to quit the hotel when ordered to do so. The defendant admitted the charge, and was fined Is. and 8s. costs. A nother Charge of Selling Beer without a License.- Mary Williams, Maenfferin, Blaenau, Festiniog, was summoned by P.S. John Lewis for selling beer in a cer- tain house, situate at Maenfferin, to one Robt. Roberts, she at the time having no excise license authorising her to do so. Robt. Roberts deposed to having a quart of beer of defendant on the 26th Feb. last, for which he paid the usual charge. A woman named Ana Peters corroborated Roberts's statement. P.C. Wm. Roberts also gave evidence, and said he was in Anne Peters' house when the quart of beer was brought in from Mrs. Williams's. He was presentwhen Roberts was sent to fetch it. Superintendent Hughes explained that in consequence of great complaints which had been made as to the prac- tice, the police constable had in fact been instructed to take that step. The defendant, who did not appear, was fined £ 5, with the costs, 34s. 6d. Attempt to eniitmit a Rape.k young unmarried wo- man, from Cwmorthen, named Mary Jones, charged John Parry, tailor, Tanygrisiau, with unlawfully and wilfully attempting to commit a rape on her, upon the highway, near to Cwmorthen, on the 20th day of April last. This case was not concluded when our reporter de- spatched his parcel.
TREMADOC. We are glad to find that Mr. H. I. Jones, son of Mr. I R. 1. Jones.

Swift tfnd Roberts, Tremadiw, have recently commenced opening a slate quarry in the parish of Dot- benmaen. The other day they found a lump of quarts, in which there was a quantity of gold. The specimen is considered to be a very good one, and sanguine hopes are entertained on the subject. Of course time alone will prove whether those hopes are well founded or not.
HOUSE OF COMMONS.—MONDAY. I The House re-assembled last evening, after the Easter recess. The attendance of members was very scanty, and the business transacted, of a formal character. In committee on the navy estimates the vote of £ 212.800 for the War Office was agreed to; and several postponed navy votes were granted. The following bills were read a second time :-The Lancaster Court of Chancery Bill, the Local Govern- ment Supplemental (No 2) Bill, and the Land Drainage Supplemental Bill. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—TCESBAT. The ATTOHNKY-GENERAL stated, in reply to Mr. Had- field, that he did not intend to bring in a bill this ses- sion to repeal obsolete acts of Parliament. Mr.. CHILDERS obtained leave to bring in a bill to pro- vide for the better government of Greenwich Hospital and the more beneficial application of the revenues of that institution. He explained that in future the hospital would be exclusively devoted to the use of in- firm seamen and those in want of temporary medical assistance. The income of the institution was about E154,000, and Mr. Childers estimated that under the proposed system of management there would be a .yearly surplus of £13,000, which should be allowed to accumulate. Mr. E. P. BBUVERIE obtained leave to bring in a bill to amend the Union of Benefices Act, by abolishing the requirement that the consent of the archdeacon of any diocese should be necessary before a church could be removed. Leave was given to Mr. T. G. BAitING to intro- duce a measure to amend the Salmon Fishery Act, 1861. Several bills having been advanced a stage, the house adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS—WEDNESDAY. I TheHouse was engaged for several hours in discussing the merits of a bill for transferring the judicial functions at present exercised by the whole of the Inns of Court to Committees of benchers specially appointed for the purpose. An effort was made by Mr. Locke and Mr. Neate to reject the measure, on the ground that it was unnecessary; but at the close of the debate a motion for the second reading bill of the was agreed to without a division. HOUSE OF LORDS—THURSDAY. THE ASSASSINATION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. On the meeting of the House of Lords at five o'clock, Earl RUSSELL said—I beg to give notice that on Mon- day next I shall move thac an humble address to the frown be presented, expressive of sorrow and indigna- tion at the assassination of the President of the United States, and praying her Majesty to convey that expres- sion of feeling to the Government of the United States. The Earl of DERBY.—With respect to the substance of the motion, I am quite certain that the expression of sorrow and indignation at the astrocious act which has been committed in the United States, will not only meet with the unanimous assent of your lordships' house, but it will represent the unanimous opinion of every man, woman, and child in her Majesty's dominions. HOUSE OF COM MONS-THURSDAY. THE ASSASSINATION. Sir GEORGE GREY said that on Monday next he would move an humble address to her Majesty, expressing the feelings of sorrow and indignation with which the house had heard of the perpetration of that atrocious crime, and of sympathy with the 4Governalent and people of the United States.

ANGLESEY CENTRAL RAILWAY.-We are glad to find that this line, the first section of which from Gaerwen toLlangefui, four miles, was opened to the public at the beginning of the year, has already attracted a very considerable traffic, and is likely to prove a good in- vestment The nett earnings on the traffic of the last five weeks is upwards of X76, which is equal to some- thing more than 5 per cent. on the distance. When the line is opened throughout to Auilwch, and facilities are affinded for the full development of the agricultural and mineral resources of the county, we confidently believe that. a much larger dividend will be earned. WAR OFFICE, PALL-MALL, APRIL 25th.-Royal Regi- ment of Guards; Lieutenant Cecil R. St. John Ives to be captain, by purchase, vice Richard Mostyn Lewis Williams liulkeley, who retired. ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS, LONDON.—Amongst the list of gentlemen who successfully passed their exa- mination, on the 20th instant, as Licentiates of the above College, we are glad to fiud the name of Mr. T.

Davies, M.A., Incumbent of Trevor, near Ruabon, was on Tuesday last instituted by the Lord Bishop of Bangor to the Rectory of LUiigelVnin, Merionethshire, vacant by the death of the Rev. J. P. Jones Parry, of Edeyrn. LKDWICH SCUOOL OF MEDICISE.—We have received a communication from Mr. S. A. Lucas, contradicting the statement which appeared in the last number f, the CHRONICLE, that the first prize in midwifery at the abn-e school was awarded to Mr. Ù. T. Evans. The following is an extract from the official advertisement which has been Bent to us for inspection Midwifery, S. A. Lucas, 1st; 0. T. Evans, 2nd. Edward Ledwieh, wcretarv." We arc requested to state, in reference to our report of a case in the Anglesey County Court, which appeared in our columns a short time ago, that Nlr Owen never entered into any agreement whatever with Mr. Wil- liams, and was not indebted to him only in so far that he made himself liable by giving the party to the agree- ment the use of his name. Having given his name, he paid half the amount. Whilst engaged in the translation of the book referred to, Mr. Owen was called from home as Deputation to the Curates' Aid Society in the the Summer of 1862. and was consequently unable to produce the translation at the usual rate, though private frieuds-Mr. Evans, Surgeon, translated a few pages, and Glasynys one or two. In his absence from home, Mr. Aubrey employed Mr. Williams on the work, at his own expense, in order to keep up the usual amount of work,—all the sheets being sent to Mr. Owen, for the sake of uniformity. He was for a long time with. out knowing who the person was. There was no mis- understanding whatever on the subject, and not a shadow of anything like a literary squabble."
AMLWCH. LAI'KCH.— OI Wednesday mornillg last, a beautiful model schooner of 123-65 per ton register was successfully lauuehed from the building yard of William Cox Paynter, Esq, of this place. Immediately the daggers were broken we glided down the ways in a beautiful style, amidst the cheers of a large number of spectators who assembled to witness the lauueh.

The company seemed highly delighted with the performance, especially the Mimical trieks upon a number of youths, who volunteer- to be operated upon, and Mr. Whitworth was enthu- siastically cheered at times. Although popular at other Places, from the thin attendance on the above occasion We can justly infer that such entertainments are not ap- Piedated by the inhabitants of Bettws y Coed.
WREXHAM. A WOMAN LILLED BY HER HUSBAND. yn ednesday evening an inquest was held at the titre Inn, Wrexham, before B. H.

Having satisfied the cravings of the inner man, they re paired with their hostess to a field close by. There they enjoyed themselves in field sports, as children only can do. On being dismissed, they testified their grati- tude by heartily cheering their kind patrons, each carry- ing home an orange and a bun to share with the loved ones at home. In the evening, a grand concert of vocal and instrumental music was held in the Schoolroom, for the benefit of the school, to a numerous audience. The Caerhun Brass Band kindly gave their services upon the occasion and the vocal pieces, consisting of solos, glees, and duetts were admirably sustained by the artistic ac- companiment of the Misses Griffith, of Caerhun, upon the harmonium. The duett "Dau hen langa," by Messrs. H. and W. Thomas, of Penygroes, was ably ren- dered and the Market Chorus, by Messrs. R. Jones, J. Jones, and W. R. Prichard, had a very warm recep- tion. Mr. J. Jones, Coetmor, pleased the company in particular by his excellent rendering of Can y Cymru," by Owen Glyndwr and Evan Benwan. Both pieces were loudly encored. Much thanks is due to Messrs. R. and J. Jones for their kindness in coming so far to assist us under the circumstances. The Rev. Mr. Hughes hav- ing explained the object of the concert, and its worthi- ness, the audience joined in "God bless the Prince of Wales," and departed highly pleased with the evening's entertainment We trust that the rev. gentleman's strenuous exertions in behalf of the school will meet with the contipuous support of the neighbourhood..

H. D. Williams. Defendaut admitted being in the woods, but denied having made use of certain words to the police-viz., that he was" trying to catch rabbits."

In consequence of in- formation received I apprehended the prisoner on the 18th inst. The c«at and leggings produced I found in the possession of the prisoner. I charged him with stealing the same, and asked him whether he wished to say anything in reply, when he said that he had nothing to say. The prisoner, who is an old offender and-spent most of his time in gaol, was cautioned in the usual way by Mr. Hughes, clerk to the justices, and in answer said he did wish to say anything. Committed to the next Quarter Sessions at Carnarvon. The police had several sheepskins in their possession which had been stolen by the prisoner ffrom several farmhouses at Ysbytty, and sold to Mr. Hugh Jones, skinner, Maentwrog; but ten out of the eleven skins' found were taken from Denbighshire, and one only from Carnarvensliire, so that case was not gone into. Mr. Hughes said that they could indict him on the other charges-at the Quarter Sessions if they wished, but that the general custom of the magistrates was to commit on one charge only. EvlW Evans was brought up under a warrant, charged by Ellin Pierce with disebeying an orner made on him as the putative father of her illegitimate child. The defendant, although getting S15 annual wages as a servant in husbandry at Plas-yn-Glasgwrn, Pen- machno, said he had no money to pay, neither had he anything to distrain upon so he was committed to gaol for two calendar months; and oil hearing the sen- tence, the" flint-hearted boy" burst iiato tears, which his fair victim could not stand, but went out and wept bit- terly and in compassion of the "two" a friendicame forward and paid the money, when he was liberated from the iron hands of the law."
PORTMADOC. I DEATH OF "HARRY WAGOO.4 FAVR.We have this week to chronicle the death of poor "Harry," who for many years has been a well-known character in this part of Wales, as he was the carrier of goods from Portmadoc to Festiniog by the trnmway for a very long time before the introduction of the steam engine. "Harry," though a hard-working, honest man, was a bit of a "character in his way, so that we all feel we could have better spared a better man." THE REGATTA.— In consequence of the perfect calm weather which has prevailed during the whole of the present week, the proposed "regatta" for the wee model vessels has not come rtff, much to the disappointment of the juveniles and others interested. We omitted to state in our last that there was a capital boat Tace on Easter Monday, which was won in gallant style by Capt. John Watkin's crew.
LLANERCHYMEDD. I PEfty SESSIONS, April 24-Before the Revd. Chan- cellor Williams, Llanfairynghornwy, and Edw. Herbert, M.A.; General Hughes; and James Webster, Esq. These Sessions were held- on Monday last, in the new Magistrates' Room at the Police Station here, and were attended by an unusual concourse of people, who mosHy came from Pensarn, As usual, affiliation cases occupied the principal part of the day, of which the following was the chief. Mary ThomM v. Thomas Roberts, both of Penstrn. The latter was defended by Mr. R. D Williams. From the conflicting and disgusting nature of the evidence in this case, we refrain giving a full report. No satisfactory or reliable ev idence, however, was produced to prove the defendant to be father of the child. In delivering judgment, the Rev. Chancellor Williams earnestly rebuked some of the parties who appeared ii o this case, remarking, that during the whole period of the lengthened magisterial experience, he had never presided over a more disgusting case. Far preferable would it have been for the mother of that child to have support- ed it, than deigning to give her evidence before that Court. A tad Ion;-itig case.-Daniel Jones v. ThomM Owen. In this case Mr. D. Jones, collector of rates at Llandy- fryd-ig. claimed the rates of Mr. T. Owen, Garn, who, however, mantaine(I having paid the same, and produc- ed receipts intended to prove the same alleged to have been signed by the plaintiff, Mr. D. Jones. This was solemnly denied by Mr. D. Jones, as well as by several others. 'On the Magistrate's Clerk enquiring whether the de- fendant intended to pay or abide the verdict of the law, as the receipt was not genuine—he immediately paid the same.
RHYL. ST. THOMAS'S CKDRCH.—We are gratified to be enabled to state that the appeal which the Rev. ft. Morgan, our respected Incumbent, made on Sunday last to his con- gregation and parishioners to defray the debt due upon the New Church, before the publication of the annual Easter accounts, has been most generously responded to. Subscriptions have poured in from all quarters and we now find that fhere is a surplus of about £ 7 which will be carried over to the chancel and tower funds. We may safely say that the final completion of this beautiful edifice is not far off. GRAND AHATEHR CONCERT.—A grand amateur con- cert will be held in the Town Hall on Tuesday next, in aid of funds for procuring an organ for St. Thomas's Church. We understand that about fifteen talented amateurs have volunteered their services, and we feel as- sured that they will afford a magnificent treat to all those who have a spark of musical love in their souls. NEW RRYr, STFANIsR.-Yesterd;ty (Sunday) the new steamer Vale of Clwyd, intended for the passenger traffic between this port and Rhyl, arrived in the Mersey, after a rapid passage from the Cloch Light to the Prince's Landing-stage in fifteen hours, including three stoppages. She accomplished the distance between Cloch Light and the Mull of Galloway in six hours and had it not been for the fog she would probably have made the passage to the Liverpool landing-stage 1,1 I I i hours. On the occasion of her trial trip she made the measured mile in three minutes, and accomplished the distance between the Cloch Light and Cumbrae, 15 miles and three quar- ters, in 52 minutes. She has been built by Mr. T. B. Sea til, of Glasgow, and supplied with engines by Mr. Campbell of the same city. We believe we are right in stating that she is without exception the fastest ship afloat, and that her arrangements for the comfort of pas- sengers are of the most perfect character. She is to commence running on the 1st of May.-Liverpool Daily Courier. POLICE COURT, Tuesday, April 24,-Before J. Chur- ton, Esq. T. G. Dixon, Esq. and Dr. Theed. Breach •»/'the Liquor Law.-Edward Vaughan, of the Packet Hotel, Voryd, was summoned for permitting drunkenness in his house on Sunday, the 9th inst., at 11 a.m. Mr. R. E. Williams, solicitor, appeared for defendant. P.C. Menson proved the offence., He stated having found a man drunk in the kitchen and 14 other men in a state of drunkenness congregated together in the back premises of the hotel. Fined 5s. and 8s. costs. John Thomas, Bedford Street, beer-house keeper, was also fined 5s. and 8s. costs for selling beer during pro- hibited hours on 'Good Friday. Drunkenness.—The following parties were summoned for being drunk and disorderly -John Williams,- fined Is. and lis. costs. Wm. Matthews,-fined 5s. and 7s. costs. Joseph Davies, fined 2s. 6d. and I Is. costs. James Hughes (drunk on two occasions),-fined £2 and 18s. costs. Thos. Hughes, butcher,fined 7s. 6d. and 7s. costs. Juvenile Poachers.—John Evans and David Roberts, two urchins, were summoned by Mr. Thos. Sleight for trespassing in pursuit of game on land in his occupation in Dyserth, on the 29th ult. The defendants pleaded guilty; and Mr. Sleight said he did not wish to press for a heavy penalty on account of the yonthful age of the offenders. Their Worships thought the eldest lad (David Roberts) had enticed the other to commit the offence, therefore they would fine him 7s. 6d. and 7s. 6d. costs. The fines were paid by the parents.
ST. ASAPH. The Rev. D. Short, rector of Llandriuio, and brother of the Bishop, has acceded to a request made to him by a numerous body o' the clergy, and will be a candidate for the office of Proctor, vacant by the death of the Rev. R. W. Eyton. The election is expected to take place next month. PENNY READINGS. —On Monday evening last, a third series of "Penny Readings" in connection with the St. Asaph Literary Society took place in the new National Schoolroom, under the presidency of Dr. Roberts. There was a crowded attendance, including the elite of the city. Readings and recitations were most ably given by R. V. Williams, Esq.. County Court Judge. R. J. Sisson, Esq., Rev. W. Hicks Owen, and Mr. William Olinhant, report- er. A select number of the Cathedral choristers sang several pleasing pieces, accompanied on the pianoforte by Miss A.. F. Jones. BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The first meeting of the new Board was held on Thurs- day last. Present-Captain Thomas; W. Brownlow Wynne, Esq. T. G. Dixon, Esq. P. P. Pennant, Esq. Rev. D. M. Evans; Rev. John Pugh; Rev. Thos. Wil- liams Wm- Phillips, Esq. Rev. T. Z. Davies Thos, Sleight Esq. Messrs. E. Roberts, H. Parry, David Par- ry, Wm. Parry, E. G. Lunt, W. Morris. Richard Jones, Thomas Pierco, Robert Jones, E PoweU Jones, and Robt. Griffith. The following are the new Guardians Mr. David Parry, St. Asaph; Mr. Morris, Denbigh; and Mr. Hugh HughesJ Cwm. According to a resolution previously passed, the busi. ness was commenced at half-past ten a.m., instead of eleven a.m. Election of Chairman and Vice-chairmeit,-On the motion of Mr. Brownlow Wynne, seconded by Mr. Wm. Parry, Captain Thomas was unanimously re-elected chair- man of the Board for the ensuing year. Capt. Thomas, in accepting the chair, thanked the Guardians for the continued confidence they reposed in him. Mr. Brownlow Wynne and Mr. Lunt, of Denbigh, were unanimously elected Vice-chairmen for the ensuing year. Election of Committees. —The Finance Assessment and Visiting Committees were appointed, and a vote of thanks for their past services was warmly passed -special men- tion being made by the Rev. Thos Williams of Mr. Ed- ward Roberts, St. Asaph, for the diligent and most va- luable aid he rendered to the Union, in connection with the Finance Committee. Relief ListR.-The relief lists, which were formerly left until the eleventh hour, are in future to take the prece- dence in the business of the Board. This alteration is carried out with a view of more effectually checking un- worthy cases being entered on the Relieving Officer's Book, and thus reduce the out-door expenditure. The Visitors' Book.-The following report in the Visi- tor's Book, dated 15th inst., and signed by A.Doyle, Esq., Poor Law Inspector, was read by the Chairman :— I have inspected the Workhouse. I made enquiry in the several wards, but did not hear of any cause of complaint amongst the inmates, who appear to be in all respects properly cared for. The ground-floor room in which the old men sleep, should, I think, be boarded. In winter, the present floor must be very cold, especially for that class of inmates. The privy in the boys' yard is in a bad state. It should be emptied more frequently. Indeed, the construction of all the privies in this house is defec- tive. The woodwork of the house requires to be painted." Medical Fffl-Guardians complained of the heavy amounts expended in extra medical fees. The applica- tion of Dr. Edwards, Denbigh, for a fee in the case of a woman with a fractured leg was again dwelt upon, and although the Guardians were inclined ,t?o be ieve the fee wes not due, they felt it impoMible, on legal grounds, to objeot to its payment. Pinance. -2375 4a, Ild. were spent in out-relief through- out the Union since last Board day. Workhouse.—The little girls in the Workhouse ap- peared in neat new frocks before the Board, and they de- sired, through Mrs. Mason, the schoolmistress, to thank the Guardians for them. The Chairman addressed the children in a few kind words, and exhorted them to good behaviour. Paupers in the house 73, against 79 last year. Va- grants relieved by the master during the past fortnight, 41.
THE BUDGET. On the motion for going into committee of ways and means, The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, who was re- ceived with much applause, said the condition of this country was eminently prosperous—a revenue larger than had ever before, either in peace or war, been raised from taxation alone, and expenditure had prevailed greater than had ever before been known in time of peace. Lastly, this Parliament had enjoyed the dis- tinction, although no Parliament ever reached its legal term, that this was the seventh time that it was called upon to provide for the financial necessities of the year. THE PAST YEAR. The expenditure for the year ending 31st March, 1865 was £ 66,462,000 the actual revenue for the same period was £ 70,313,000,—(cheers,)—showing a surplus of revenue over expenditure of £ 3,851,003. (Renewed cheers.) But, if he included, as he perhaps ought to do, the cost of the fortifications which were specially pro- vided for by terminable annuities, the total expendituie of the year was £ 67,082,000, and in this case there was still a surplus of £ 3,231,000. (Cheers.) GROWTH OF THE REVENUE. In order to show the growth of the revenue of the country, he stated that between 1810 and 1852 (the year preceding the outbreak of the Russian war) the balance of taxes repealed over taxes imposed amounted to up- wards of £ 5,000,000. From 1853 to 1859 it was between six and seven millions, and from 1859 to 1865 it was X6,137,000. Thus in the first period from 1840 to'52 the annual rate of increase in the revenue was £ 1,030,000 in the second period, £ 1,240,000 and in the third, £1,780,000. In the balances of the country there had also been an increase of X348,000, and the total amount of debt paid off in the year was £ 5,340,000. In 1859 the public debt waa X825,934,00, and it now stood at X808,288,000, showing a diminution in six years of £ 17,646,000. PROSPERITY OF THE PAPER TRADE. Referring to the effect of legislation in reference to paper he said that the trade had not left the country, nor did it evince any intention of doing so. The import- ation of paper from abroad had arisen to nearly half a million of money, and the amount of materials imported for making British paper had increased from 17,700 tons 20,400in 1862, to 44,000 tons in 1863, and to 67,000 tons in 1864. THE TRADE WITH FRANCE. Our trade with France continues to increase. In 1859 the total amount of our trade with France was X26,431,000 in 1864 it was X42,787,000, showing an increase of £ 23,600,000, or nearly 90 per cent. TRADE OF THE COUNTRY FOR THE YEAR. As regarded the whole trade of the country it had undergone a large further increase in the year just ex- pired, and now stood as follows :—Imports £ 274,000,000, exports C213,000,000 total, £ 487,000,000; showing an increase of X219,000,000 since 1859. There was an im- pression that although the increase in our trade was great, it was less than the increase in the trade of foreign countries. It was quite true that the trade of France exhibited a larger relative rate of increase than ours, but that was because the trade of France since the great war, and since the crushing depopulation of the last years of that war, remained under an unnatural depres- sion. He believed that enormous, nay boundless, ad- vantages had resulted from the inventive spirit which had distinguished the mechanism of the age from the improvement in the methods of locomotion. He believed that the people might be said to pay to the railways at least £30,000,000 sterling per a-year, and it was a very moderate estimate to put the benefit which they other- wise derived from their introduction at another 930,000,000 sterling per annum. Industry was given to the United Kingdom to lead the vanguard of civilisation. In the words of one of our greatest poets— To serve a model for a mighty world, And be a fair beginning of the time." MR. COBDEN. Having been associated very closely with Mr. Cobden in the negotiations on account of the French treaty, he might be permitted to take this opportunity of bearing his humble testimony to the merits of one whom it was im- possible not to call to mind on this occasion. Mr. Cobdeu needed no eulogy at his hands, for his memory was a part of the history of his country, and the recollection of his distinguished services would be the recollection of a character so pure, so courageous, so simple, so disin- terested, and so devoted, that it gave as much lustre to his great tslents as it received lustre from them. (lj*ud A cheats. ) REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE OF THE-TEAR. The charge of the funded and unfunded, debt waa £ 26 350,000; the consolidated fund, kl,900,000; array, 214,348,000 navy, £ 10,392,000; collection of the reve- nue, service, £ 842,000, miscellaneous. 27 650.000; making the total charges for the year, £06.189,000. The revenue he estimated as follows :— Customs, E22,775,000 excise, m,0:40,000; stamps, £ <(550,000; assessed taxes, £ 3,^0,000; property tax, £ 7 800,000; post-office, £ 4,250,000; crown lauds, £ £ >2,000; miscellaneous, £ 2,650,000; China indemnity, £ 450,000; making the total revenue, £ 70,170,000. Deducting from this the expenditure of £66,1:10.000, it showed a probable surplus of 1:4,031,000. (Loud cheers.) TAXES TO BE REDUCED. It would first of all be proposed to remove the momMY ia the canveyance and transfer of shares,^ by which, m order to effect a small saving, two instead of ￼ now taken out. He prop-wed to place script certificates and receipts of bonds to tlie- home and foreigu on the same footing. He also proposed to reduce the duty on agreements tor letting small tenements from 6d. to 1d. He proposed to reduce the-duty on apprasements to io, and to relieve the special pleaders and conveyancers by putting them on the same footing as attorneys, by allow- ing them a reduction to the extent of half the duty for the first three years. (Laughter.) He also proposed to reduce the stamp duties on ecclesiastical licence where the operation of the present system prevented the use ot the instrument to which such licences applied. The next change was in the stamp on charter parties, which opera- ted very hardly upon gentlemen in the north of England. At present the charge on a charter party was 5s., and ha proposed to reduce it to (id. subject to the condition of having a proper printed stamped paper because Govern- ment preferred getting a 0d., duty properly secured to them, rather'than a 5s. duty which they only obtained ia a very few instances.. The duty on reinsurance, imposed last year, was proposed to be removed, as being burden- some and the duty on what were termed "time policies," in marine insurances was also to be reduced, and lastly, a change would be made in the stamp duty on assurances given by certain companies against accidental death, personal injury, and damages to the plate giass. (A laugh.) THE MALT DUTY. He now came to the subject of the malt duty with res- pect to-which a debate had already arisen, on which many in that house ente:tlined strong conviction. There was one question which had been raised in connection with this duty, which he believed they had heard the last of, namely, the preparation of malt for feeding cattle. It was now proved that malt was only an exceptionally good food for cattle, the proof being that of 28 malthouses opened for the preparation of malt for feeding purposes 17 had closed,not on account of excise restrictions, but on account of want of demand for barley malted for cat- tle. If it were true that the effect of the tax of £ 6.000,000 on malt impose I a burden of £ 20,000,000 on the consumers of beer, it was plain that it must operate vastly to the benefit of those who obtained the interme- diate amount of £ 14,000,000. The truth was that the abolition of the malt duty would be the death-warrant of all-our system of iudirect taxation, for with malt sen- tenced it would be impossible to retain the tax on tea and sugar on the one hand, and on wine and spirits on the other. The question which he had to solve, with a view to the reduction of the duty on malt, was to arrive at the actual tax if placed on beer: and he bodly stated that 12 J per cent on beer, as asserted by the President of the Board of rrade, was a rigidly accurate estimate for purposes of comparison with the duties on tea and sugar. The result of the minutest inquiry by the revenue officers had proved that, taking a barrel of beer, the price was enhanced by the malt duty and its incidents to the extent of about 20 per cent, and he defied any one to impugn that calcntiou. He quoted returns to show that while the consumption of malt per head of the population had increased, the consumption of spirits had now decreased. With 20,000,001) of population the consumption of beer was 20,000,000 barrels, or exactly one barrel per head, lo show the powers of consumption enjoyed by the English people, the right hon. gentleman related an anecdote of a labourer on the Thames, who, in consequence of an accident, because an inmate of one of the hospitals in the east end of London, upon whom it was necessary to perform an opera- tion, but whose temperate habits it was necessary to ascertain in the first instance. A good character for temperance was given to the man, but on inquiry it was found that his temperance consisted in never drinking. more than eight quarts a day. The average consumption of an intemperate man was estimated at from 12 to 16 quarts per day, and it was further estimated that the total amount of beer consumed gave an average of 60 quarts per annum for every adult male in England. For his own part he could not see what the producers of malt had to complain of when it was shown that the consumption of beer had been steadily increasing, and the price of the raw material regulary and progressively going up. Beer ought not to be taxed more heavily than wine and spirits, then tea ought not to be taxed more heavily than beer. Yet the tax upon a barrel of beer was only 20 per cent. as compared with the price of beer, while upon tea it was not less than 44 per cent. I REDUCTION OF TEA DUTY. With regard to the malt tax, it was not in their power to ask the house to absorb so very large a portion of the surplus of the present year as would be neces- sary, together with the future burdens that would be entailed, in making a partial remission of the malt tax, and they had arrived at the conclusion as the result of that examination of the relative weight of the taxation, that the best step they could ask the house to take was to do that act of justice which hitherto had remained undone, and to place the duty on tea in just relation to the duty on beer. They thought it best to make a pro- posal that would be of a decisive character, and afford the consumer the benefit of a considerable reduction. Taking the price of tea as delivered out of bond at 2s. 6d. per lb., they felt that if they could reduce the duty on tea by so large a sum as 6d. in the pound they would cause a reduction in the wholesale price of the article of 20 per cent. The estimated consumption of tea for 1865-6 was 92,000,000 Ibs., and the loss of 6d. a pound would amount to X2,300,000, but as a portion of the year had already expired, the total loss of revenue during the year would be £ 1.868,000 • REDUCTION OF INCOME TAX. Since the Russian war an increase of X12,000,000 had been made to the annual expenditure of the coun- try. Under these circumstances he could not see, as some persons appeared to think, that he himself was personally pledged to do away with the income tax but it was now in his power to make a proposal to the house which would bring the income tax within manage- able limits, and he asked the house to reduce the in- come tax by two-thirds, or 2d. in the pound. In this proposal the annual yield of the income tax would be reduced to £ 5,200,000, at which figure the income tax would be handed over to the new Parliament. The yield of the tax was so rapidly increasing that a penny in the pound now produced the sum of Xl,300,1400 in- stead of k 1,000,000. The result of the reduction there- fore would be a loss to the revenue of £ 2,000,000; but of this sum only XI,650,000 would accrue during the current year. THE FIRE INSURANCE DUTY. The next subject he had now to dealawith was the fire insurance duty. The yield of the fire insurance duty for the year, without any alteration, would be £1,450,000, but he should propose to reduce it to an uniform duty of one shilling and sixpence from the 20th June. He should also propose a further change not in- dicated by the resolution of the house, but which would meet with general approval, and reduce the duty of the policy, which acted as a great obstacle to small in- surances, but which was quite distinct from the duty on the annual renewal of the policy, from one shilling to a penny. The result would be that, for half the year they would receive the duty of the old rate, or the sum of 1:725,000. The rate of the new duty for the whole year would be X930,000, or a loss of Z520,000 for the whole year. Taking, then, the half of these two amounts, the total amount of the duty for the eurrent year would be XI,190,000, or a loss of £ 260,000, with a further loss in the following year of X260,000 more. SUMMARY. The result of the changes which he had proposed might be summarised as follows :—The reduction of the tea duties would give a relief of £ 2,200,000; the income tax, £ 2,600,000; making, with the minor changes, a total relief of X5,420,000, but of this amount X 3,778,000 would fall within the present year. There would, there- fore, be left a slight surplus of E253,000, which the Government asked the house to leave in its hands. There would, however, be a further loss uc zCI,417,000 in the following year, making the permanent loss of the revenue of X 5,195,000. In conclusion, be forcibly urged the house to accept his scheme, which was intended to meet the interests of the whole community and not of any particular class. The right hon. gentleman sat down after a speech of two hours and a half. The reception of the financial scheme appeared to be remarkably favourable. Mr. WHITESIDE insisted that an expenditure of £ 30,000,000 was sufficient for all purposes. Mr. Marsh, Sir F. Crossley, and others approved of the financial scheme; but Mr. Bentinck, Lord J. Man- ners, and Mr. Surtees loudly complained of the refusal of the Chancellor of the Exchequer to deal at all with the malt tax. Mr. MAGUIRE urged the claims of the paper makers to consideration on account of the grievous wrong done to them five years ago; and the case of the Irish dis- tillers, whose trade was all but destroyed. Mr. BASS believed the budget would be acceptable to the country, but regretted the determination of Govern- ment with respect to the malt duty. The house adjourned at 1 40 a.m.
