Paris, April 25.—Yesterday, at three p.m., a strangir presented himself at the Russian Embassy, demanding to speak willi the Secretary of Legation.

BANGOR LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. To the Editor of the North Wales Chronicle. Sir,—I have no intention of entering into a contro- rersy with the Editor of a newspaper, or of making a long explanation of what actually took place at the two meetiugs of the Baugor Board of Health, where I lately attended; but perhaps you will be good enough to allow me to say that the words made use of by Mr. Douglas at the Vestry Meeting held on the -Oth li st., so far as they relate to the part that I have been called upon to act, are not a correct representation of the real faote of the case. P, A. IREMONGER. Lime Grove, April 26th, 1865.

THE VACANT PROCTORSHIP. To the Editor of the North Wales Chronicle. Sir,— There is an active canvass going on, as I hear, in St. Asaph Diocese for the vacant Proctorship. May I ask my brother Clergy whether they approve of this ? At the Universities, it is an unheard of thing that a man should offer himself as a candidate. The members decide who are the most titting persons, and bring forward their candidates accordingly—much more should this be the case among the Clergy. We have now to consider what men of mark we have among us, who will most worthily represent us. It sa- vours somewhat of presumption when on individual vote8 himself to be one of the first men in the Diocese, and then goes about actively canvassing, and writing letters to his friends to secure their support. And what may be the result ? Why, that a very inferior person may be elected, and the most desirable rejected, simply because a number of the Clergy, in their unwillingness to say "no" to a friend, have pledged their votes to him, not knowing who may be brought forward. Let me, then, urge my brethren to discourage in every way this indecorous conduct, and reserve their votes till they see whom their brethren briny forward, and who may really prove the most eligible for the office. Yours. &c.. A ST. ASAPH RECTOR. I
DESECRATION OF BEAUMARIS CHURCH I To the Editor of the North TIWcs Chronicle. I Sir,-An old and disconsolate widow, who has Her dear departed husband mouldering and resting in peace under the cold sod in this church yard, craves your sympathy to allow htr a corner in your journal to unfold and descant upon the very unseemly practice in my humble opinion of allowing children, under a pretence of going to Church,—either to service or Sunday School, to assemble together long before the time of School, and Divine Service to amuse themselves by jumping upon the tomb stones. My heart has often bled to witness boys, playing at a game .called Follow the leader," and trampling upon monuments erected ior departed relations and dear frieuds. On whom the fault lies to allow this unseem- ly practice is to me of not so much importance to know, as to have the nuisance abated. I hope and trust the officials who are in office, and who have the power to put a stop to this grievance, and whose imperative duty it is, will take this gentle warning, and suggest some salutary measure to put astop to this intolerable practice which prevails among the children. Sunday after Sunday, to the grief of many a poor widow beside myself, whose husbands or families' remains are interred therein. NOT THE WIDOW OF NAIN.
CHURCH BUILDING IN WALES. I To tlte Editor of the North Wales Chronicle. I Sir,—The most interesting objects that attract my notice in sojourning among the hills and dales of old Cambria are its churches—ancient and modern. I am most happy to find the improvement that has taken place during the few years past in their construction, compared with what they were when I first had the op- portunity to visit this country. A few days ago I hap- pened to be in the t-)wti of Bethesda, Carnarvonshire, where I observed an elegant little church nearly com- pleted within a distance of about half-a-mile from the town, on a beautiful situation facing the slate quarry, called the St. Ann's. This, I understand, as well as many other improvements in the surrounding villages, is a monument of the liberality of the Hon. Col. E. G. D. Pennant, who, it app.ars, has nUl'e tiken the whole expense of its erection. Upon enquiry, I found that the drawings were prepared by Mr. G. Roberts, architect of the Penrhyn Castle estate, which have been carried into effect in a workmanlike manner by Mr. Parry, builder, of Menai Bridge. I do not hesitate to say that this magnificent building is a credit to the architect and testifies to the ability of the builder. All the angles, 1 find, as well as the buttresses, win- dows, spire, &c., are built of Anglesey marble, which is far superior to the sand-stono generally used for such works in England, as well as some parts of Wales. The exterior facing is of local stone in random coursed rub. ble; and in regard to this portion of the work I may remark it is the best I ever noticed; and if any of your readers, who feel an interest in building, should happen to travel in the vicinity of Bethe"da, let them go to see this splendid little church, and 1 have no doubt but that they will come to a similar conclusion as to the superiority of this part of the work. The interior arches are constructed of Uath stone, ornamented with beauti- ful carvings. The east and west windows are glazed with very neat coloured glass, and all other windows with cathedral glass in diamond quarries. But without making any further remarks upon the building, allow me to express, sir, that I truly hope that the sacred work that will hereafter be carried on within its walls, will at all times be under the direct influence and guidance of the Holy Ghost, and that it will be the means of converting many a sinner from the error of his ways. I am, air, yours respectfully TOURIST. April 26, 1865. T01JmST.
NEWSPAPER REPO RTINTG.rHE LATE BAV GOR VESTRY MEETING. To the Editor of the North Wales Chronicle. .1 Sir,-I am an old subscriber and a constant reader ot the NOUTH WALES CHRONICLE; and am, moreover, one -who thoroughly enjoys local news. I look forward each week with feelings of great satisfaction to the Friday evening luxury of a seat in my chimney corner, with my glass, pipe, and paper. Such being the case, need I add that I fully appre- ciate good reporting. Full and lucid reports are Bptcial treats to me. How cordially did I, then, endorse the sentiments expressed the other day at the important meeting of the ratepayers of Bangor, in vestry assem- bled, by a gentleman so well known for his love of open, candirJ, and above-board proceedings, as to the value of full and clear reports of all meetings held in Bangor, such as Vestry, Board of Health, and Board of Guardian meetings. The gentleman in question complained, with some degree of justice (forgive me, Mr. Editor, for saying so) of the brief and unsatisfactory reports which often appear of such important meetings as the aforesaid and I really think that your reporter who attended the Ves- try meeting at which this complaint was made, must have profited very considerably by the lecture he there and then received. Vide the charming report of the said meeting. Not only are the very excellent and sensible speeches, made upon that occasion, given in extenso, but the in- terlarchtiona of sportive ami brilliant wit also appear, abounding in telling puns and caustic sittire, so often and so judiciously (?) thrown in by an eminent punster, who, since the demise of a very rev. gentleman, is per-, haps without a rival in the sparkling field of wit and epigram. Never did I enjoy the reading of a report more in the whole course of my report reading. How easy and na- turally does it read A speech from a ratepayer is scarcely finished, when the nail which the speaker has driven home is fairly clinched by a jest irresistibly fun- ny, but at the same time exactly to the purpose,—so much so, in fact, that I am sure the speochwaker must have felt supremely grateful for the gratuitous assistance which was so unsparingly bestowed. So long as we have such racy talent in our good old city, it is certainly a pity to hide it under a bushel, for by so doing, injustice is done to the happy owner there- of, and the public is also deprived of the rich treat of reading its brilliant sallies. In conclusion, permit me, >hr. Emtor, as one of your oldest subscriber*, to congratulate you aud your report- » ers upon the improved style evinced in the report of the \.late vestry meeting, and personally to thank you for the hearty enjoyment I experienced in reading the same. Hopiug we, your subscribers, may shortly have more of the admirable liiixture of mirth and business, I am, Mr. Editor, Yours, &CII I JOCOSITY. j
PRELIMINARY OPENING OF THE LLANGOLLEN AND COR- WEN RAILWAY. This line, which is a continuation of the Ruabon and Llangollen line, in connection with the Great Western Company, was opened on Wednesday, the 19th instant. We have so often referred to the pro- gress of this line, that we need only point to a few of the obstacles which the direotors had to contend with in prosecuting their labours. Some engineering difficulties were conceived by many at the point of starting from Llangollen, and again in the crossing of the river Dee, which were soon overcome by Henry Robertson, Esq., who worked the supposed impractical scheme to the satisfaction of all; The cross- ing of the Dee was a work of considerable magnitude, but is happily, now, an accomplished fact. A little above that point is a tunnel commencing near Plas Berwyn, the residence of Colonel Tottenham, and about one-third of a mile in length. The rock turned out to be very hard, and to that is principally attributed the delay in opening the line. Having now briefly adverted to the difficulties the promoters had to contend with, we would next direct our readers to the very beautiful sceneries from Llan- gollen to Corwen, along the route through which the line is constructed. Castell DinasBran, so called after its well-merited chieftain, is a very interesting object on the right of the line, under which is the beautiful and much-increasing town of Llangollen, where Ned Morgan" and Jenny Jones" in times gone by, resided. Leaving Llangollen, we have the Eglwyseg rocks, whose fortified-like appearance reminds us of a Cron- stadt or Gibraltar, as if nature itself had assisted our fore fathers to resist long the invading foe, which they did most gallantly. We cross the Dee and proceed up towards the south side of it. The ancient little church of Llantysilio is over the river on the north, and close thereto is Llau- tysilio Hall, the resiHence of A. Reid, Esq., the well- known and indefatigable gentleman who has taken such an active part in the mines of the district for the last 30 years, and given employment to so many people. Near this place, there is shut out steam," and what is done directs our attention to the tunnel we are about to enter, and a glance at Plas Berwyn with the beautifully laid out grounds about it gives us something to admire and think of in the dulness of the tunnel. We are out at Glyndyfrdwy and pass on close to the river Dee, with the Berwyn mountain on our left, and up the vale; and as soon as we pass the Owain Glyn- dwr's mount we have the beautiful village of Llansant- ffraid-Glyn-Dyfrdwy on our right, and the rounding of the hills brings us to the Vale of Edernion. On our right is Rhaggatt with the beautiful park arouud it, and on the left is Plas-yn-bouwm, the resi- dence of the Rev. Mr. Roberts; and &oon after we see Pentre Trewyu, the Corwen Vicarage, &c., and pass on close towards Corwen. Just before us is the bridge over the Dee on the Vale of Clwyd Line, called the Alexandra," and in a moment we pass the junction between the two lines aud alight at the Corwen Railway Station. On the day in question great were the preparations at Corwen for the due celebration of the opening. A Com- mittee had been formed a few days previous, and as usual at this beautiful little town the proceedings were characterised by the greatest unanimity. Upwards of X21 had been collected by Dr. Walker and Mr. Moltby, Walker Jones, Esq., being chairman, and Mr. D. Ro- berts, auctioneer, hou. sec. The programme after a calm discussion was agreed to —viz to hoist the flag on the Prince of Wales tower; the inhabitants to take the hint as usual with their private flags; some rural sports a greazy pole and fire- works in the evening. The Ruthin Volunteer baud was also engaged for the occasion, who did their duty well and added much to the enlivenment of the day. An arch was also erected across the principal street from the Crown Inn to Mr. I I iighes' offices, laid out under the superintendence of Mr. Mousely and Dr. Walker. Reverting to the opening, the fiist train arrived at 11 o'clock, with which great many of the inhabitants, &c., were allowed to go to Llangollen to meet the second train, which arrived here at I o'clock with the Di- rectors and friends," being the principal inhabitants of Llangollen and neighbourhood. A procession was formed, headed by the brass band, and all were soon after under a beautiful decora- ted canvass, provided for the occasion by Mr. Moltby, at the east end of the Owain Glyndwr, where a splendid luncheon was prepared. Colonel Tottenham, Chairman of the Company, pre- sided. Mr. Robertson and Mr. Wagstaff occupied the vice-chairs, and the following were the names of the in- vited guests:- Dr. and Mrs. Robertson, Mr. Morris Roberts, Mr. Reid, Mr. Hugh Jones, Mr. R. Baker, Mr. G. Dicken, Capt. Reid, Miss Fitzmaurice, Mr. Cruickshank, Lady Marshall, Mr. H. Jones, Maesmawr Mr. Lynes, Bryn- tysilio Miss Mourrier, Woodlands, Llangollen; Miss Williams, Woodlands, Llangollen; Mr. D. Hughes, Minfordd, Llangollen Col.

Edwards, Llangollen Miss Louisa Edwards, Llangollen Mr. Stephens, Cheater; Mrs. Edwards, Hand Hotel; Rev D. Jones, Llangollen Mr. J. C. Edwards, Trefynant; Mr. Brandt, C.E.; Mr. E Parry, Mr. C. Richards and party; Rev. Mr. Williams, Llangar Mr. Binger, Mr. M. Smith, Mr. John Jones, Oswestry; Mr. C. Macin- tosh, Mr. J. Grant, Mr. Brooker, Mr. D Pritchard, Mr. R. White, Sir W. W. Wynn, Bart. M.P.; Mr. Price Jones; Mr. It. J. Venables, Mr. T. Mainwaring, M.P.; Mr. Rowlands, Denbigh; Mr. W. Foulkes Mr. J. Price, Mr. N Jones, Rev. E. J. Owen and Mrs. Owen, Llaufair, Ruthin, &c. Grace having been said by the Rev. Mr. Wynne. The Chairman proposed the loyal toasts, and then gave the Bishop and Clergy of the Dioce?e, coupled with the name of the Rev. ?er? Wynne, of Llandrillo. He (the Chairman) always had great pleasure in meeting Mr. Wynne as a magistrate, and if he performed his duties as a clergyman as well as he did as a magistrate his parishioners ought to be thankful, (Applause.) The Hev. Mr. Wynne, on behalf of the Bishop and Clergy begged to return them his sincere thanks. He was sure they had on that auspicious day the good opin- ion and sympathies of all the clergy. Nothing could give them greater pleasure than to see that great harbin- ger of civilization, the iron horse, introduced into their native country. The Lord Bishop was well known as a lover of improvements, and especially as an advocate of education, and if they would only consider for a moment that education was not obtained alone by the study of books, but perhaps oftener by the objects that were taken in by the eye, they might see the gieat advantages to a country, in that point of view, from having a railway passing through it. A railway enabled all classes of so- ciety to move from home and witness scenes quite differ- out from those to be witnessed at their own doors-to interchange opinions and feelings with men brought up in quite different scenes from their own and thus opportunities were obtained of benefitting one another, highly advantageous to all parties. (Hear, hear.) Again, an immense saving of time was gained by the public when railways enabled them to move so rapidly. Com- merce was promoted, the landed interest, and the Chair- man amongst the number, found their estates greatly enhanced in value, and thus the railway must, of course, exercise an influence upon everything, upon the rich and the poor. The rich would have greater opportunities of social intercourse. The poorest peasant in the land would have an opportunity of increasing his stores-his cupboard would be fuller, his home much more cheerful, his children better clad and probably better educated. (Hear, hear.) They had long looked for a railway, but at first the sinews of war were not to be found. They had long looked down towards Llangollen to see this railway invading them, but now, thauk God, they had it, and he hoped they would soon be called together again to celebrate the completion of the remainder of the work. (Appla"se.) The Chairman explained that one reason why Mr. Wynne was called upon to respond was, because he was a shareholder, and because they had elected him chap- lain of the railway. (Laughter). The Kev. Mr. Wynne said that office had been more than a sinecure. The Chairman gave the Army, Navy, and Volunteers. They could not go on coufortably in promoting the pro- gress of railways or any other improvements if they were constantly in dread of foreign aggression. They were, therefore, very much interested in the army and navy, and the splendid army of volunteers which has risen up within the last few years. (Hear, hear.) He hoped it would be long before their services would be required but still it was impossible to say at what moment some- thing might arise to call for their exertions. A dark cloud had appeared in the west within the last few day, and when their American cousins had settled their little differences it was hard to say what employment they might require for the mass of troops which had just enough of war, perhaps, to like it. Therefore he begged leave to propose the Army, Navy and Volunteers, coupled with the names of Major Fitzmaunee, Capt. Sewell, R.N. and Capt. Field. (Applause.) Maior Fitzmaurice said he observed, by a very appro- priate motto on the wall, that a little steam went a long way and he saw present the man who would make steam goa far as any man living. (Applause). Ihe London and North- Western and the Great Weatam were two railways that would compete with any railways in Europe, in everything that should belong to an efficient railway. PerhapH on the present occasion, he (the gallant major) could not do better than follow the example of a friend of his, who, when hisheatth was proposed, rose and said, ga"tlgmTO> I am okEged to you. (Laughter.) If he spoke for an hour he did not know what he could say more than that. He must remember, however, that he was not responding for himself, but for the finest body of men in the World—an army. th.at had never been baateu in fair fiaht, and that often successfully contend- ed with five or ten times their number—and if any sporting man were present. he would say that was long odds. (Laughter and applause.) He would be sorry to trespass on the speeches of any that were to follow, but as he was the oldest volunteer in the room, perhaps they would pardon him for alluding to the extraordinary sight witnessed at Brighton on Easter Monday. He looked upon it not only as a Volunteer but also as a soldier, and not ouly as a purely military effort, but also in con- nection with the railway system. When he looked to the other side of the Atlantic, he saw how much the issues of war had depended on the railways, and how, the previous week, he was sorry to say, defeat had been sustained in consequence of the interception of the lines. Nothing gave him greater pleasure thau to see the un- animity which prevailed on Easter Monday. A great number of Volunteers, and a large mass of heavy guns, were conveyed to Brighton by a splendid military or- ganization of the railway system. (Applause.) In this point of view he looked upon railways as of the greatest importance to the country, whether they were in, the Valley of the Dee or on the Coast of Dover. (Applause.) If theVolunteers would allow him he would return thanks to them in his own person. He looked upon them as one of the oldest British institutions, and he thought it especially right to do them honour on this occasion. They had displayed a unanimity and an attention to drill which had excited in him not only the greatest as- tonishment, but also the greatest admiration. (Applause). Captain Sewell was so convinced of the efficiency of the navy to defend these shores against, he was going to say, our brethren in America or any other people, that he wished to impress upon all the feelings of security which they might justly encourage. (Hear, hear.) Mr. H. Robertson, M.P., said it was now his privilege to propose the toast which, he was sure they would all agree with him, was the toast of the day—Success to the Llangolleu and Corwen Railway, and the health of the Chairman, Col. Tottenham. (Much applause.) It was clear from the way in which the simple announce- ment of the toast was received, that it required no speech, but he believed it would not be considered .respectful if he were so very brief and laconic. At the same time he should have somè tliffieulty in saying what they could all hear, for what had been said at the other end of the tent had been to him and those who sat near him nothing better than dumb show. (Laughter.) He felt sure, by what he had seen that day, that the toast of prosperity to the Llangollen and Corwen Railway was one in which they would all agree most heartily. It was in itself but a very small railway, only about ten miles long, but it had its peculiarities that were not uninteresting to rail- way men. Many experienced railway men had travelled over it, and they said it was a very interesting ten miles of railway. (Applause.) They had some difficulty in escaping out of Llaugollen, but they endeavoured to do so without interfering much with the old town, and he thought they had done it without detracting from the beauties of the place. (Hear, hear.) They pass- ed along the valley, through the narrow gorge, and came to the crossing of the Dee, and then they had some difficulty in getting a bridge founded on the bot- tom of the river. They had to contend with the loose rocks in the bottom of the Dee, but they did it success- fully. (Applause.) They had a capital water dog in the agent, Mr. Reid, and a better piece of work was never done than that bridge on the boulders of the Dee. It was done well, and there it was to speak for itself. Then the line came to the turnpike road, the bridge, the canal, and the public road on the other side, and so they passed on to the Berwyn, to as pretty a spot as any rail- way could pass through. He was one of those who thought a railway should enjoy the pretty places as well as other means of communication. Then they came to their greatest difficulty, and that was no trifle. They had the Berwyn to pass through, and, owing to the height of the ground above, they could only work at two points. Besides, they had to work at a sharp curve, and on an incline, but with the assistance of the engineers and Mr. Reid they made a good job of it, though he was sorry to say it occupied a long time, and human nature could not do it faster. For two years and eight months they were working at it day. and night incessantly. However, they got through the darkness, and then there was nothing but the pleasant meandering journey along the Dee to Cor- wen, and he hoped their difficulties were now over, and that the pleasant tiip they had hadthatday, limited only because the tent was limited, would soon be followed by the opening of the line to all, and that others besides themselves would enjoy that excursion. (Applause.) But they must not look upon that line as merely ten miles of railway. It was part of an important system for North Wales-a most important route right through the heart of the country, and he was glad to tell them that arrangements were, he would say, perfected, by which the extension of the line to Dolgelley would be completed. (Applause.) That was but one part of the route, for this railway would also form the inlet towards that from Bala to Festiniog and the west coast of Car- narvonshire. (Applause.) Then they must not forget the Vale of Clwyd, and the arrangements with that line. He looked at this railway from Llangollen as being of great national advantage in developing the resources of North Wales in a way most effeclive for the industry of the country. (Hear, hear.) Before such a company as that he would not speak of the benefits of railway com- munication. In Wales they wanted the manufactures of England, and other articles, and England wanted various things in return. Hitherto Wales had been to a great extent shut up, but the development of her re- sources and her industry by the introduction of railway communication would tend to improve all classes. It would add to the wealth and the employment of the country, and raise all to a higher level than they now enjoyed. (Applause.) He was sure that in that result those who promoted the railways would find their greatest reward, as well as obtaining that other reward, which they ought to obtain as proprietors, from the pro- fits of the traffic. (Applause.) Whilst they looked at the benefits whioh the country would obtain from the introduction of railways, they would; not forget those to whom they were indebted for it, and first of those who had steadfastly promoted railways let him name Colonel Tottenham. (Applause.) When they were getting the line to Llangollen, he was there to assist them, and they got that line, and they had made his own Corwen line— for they might call it his own, since half of the line went through the gallant colonel's property—and he (Mr. Robertson) hoped they would continue to have the bene- fit of his untiring industry and assistance in the lines to Bala and Dolgelley and the other extensions in North Wales. (Applause.) He (Mr. Robertson) would not longer trespass on their time, but ask them to drink suc- cess to the Llangollen and Corwen Railway, and the health of their Chairman. (Applause). The Chairman said that Mr. Robertson had so atily described the difficulties of the line in an engineering and other points of view, and also the advantages that would result from railway communication, that it was unnecessary for him to travel over the same track. For himself he had only to say that when he found his lot partly cast in that beautiful valley, he of course wished to do everything he could to improve its condition,, and there was no way in which it was evident to him, he could so effectually do it as by promoting the introduc- tion of railways. (Hear,, hear.) He fortunately met with Mr. Robertson several years ago, and they bad worked together-at least he (the chairman) might say he had been a humble assistant of Mr. Robertson's in carrying out the second stage- of thit system of railways. (Applause.) Whenever h& (the chairman) raltlertook anything, he always did it with a will. Perhaps he did not always go so far as he ought to do, but it was not his own fault if he did not. Before he sat. down he must beg that they would allow him to propose a toost- the health of the gentleman who really was- the prime moverin that railway system. The director" oompar. atively easy work to do. For himself, he hadiwatched the progress of the works for the last two years and a half, and he might almost claim to be an assistant of their friend, Mr. Reid's, for he was on the line almost as much as that gentleman was himself. (Laughter.) But the prime mover was their worthy engineer. (Applause.) To his energy and perseverance they wese indebted not only for the Vale of Llangollen line and that railway but for the prospect of further extensions. (Hear, hear. ) He had had some, very up hill work, inmore senses of the- word than one,, w. making his way through that valley up to. Corwen. (Applause.) He then proposed the health of Mr. Robertson, M.P. for Sherwsbury and their en. ginger. (Apptaase.) Mr. Robertson thanked them most sincerely for the honour they had done him. He had enjoyed the good fortune of carrying out other lines of railway in Wales, both North and South. It was now some twenty years ago since he had the satisfaction of commencing the first railway south of Chester, and of carrying it through Shrewsbury, a town for which he had the greatest res- pect, and from which he hailed, and one to which he ought to pay all respect. (Laughter.) He helped to carry on the line to Hereford and South Wales, and he was proud of having beeii the means, with others, of placing in a perfect and finished state that railway, by which both the Great Western and North Western competed for the traffic of North and South Wales (Applause.) But when executing these lines, if tired aud jaded with the work, there was one valley to which he liked to turn, and there with rod and coracle to en- joy and refresh himself. (Applause.) And when the fish would not nibble, it was his amusement to think where he would place the railway which he had deter- mined to carry out; and he was exceedingly proud that day to find his hopes and purposes so fully realised, and to have that pleasant excursion, with many friends, along the banks of the Dee. (Applause.) It was but an instalment of what, with the assistance of those interest- ed in the looality, they hoped to do in the way of rail- way communication, and he should be exceedingly proud to see the day when that railway would be further ex- tended through the Principality. (Applause.) lie was interested, as a resident, a Merionethshire proprietor— not a very large one, but itill large enough to give him an interest in the county, and he should be delighted to help, with others, in carrying out railway communi- cation in the Principality. (Hear, hear.) He could not sit down without calling attention to the men who above all others had been mainly instrumental in carrying out the work Mr. Brassey, and his partner, Mr. Field. (Applause.) Great as was the engineering profession, and the work of the men who practically carried out what they designed, among them no man stood so high as his (Mr. Robertson's) friend, Mr, Brassey. (Applause.) More than twenty years ago, when he (Mr. Robertson) was a young railway engineer, and could find no one to carry out the Shrewsbury and Chester line for the esti- mate, he met with Mr. Brassey in a railway carriage, and showed him the estimate. Mr. Brassey said— Young man, you have plenty of money, and I will do. it for the estimate." (Hear, hear.) Mr. Brassey carried out the line successfully, as he deserved to do, from his energy and worthiness in every respect. The same gen- tleman enabled him (Mr. Hobertsou) to carry out the Llangollen and Corwen line. He (Mr. Brassey) was a large proprietor in those lines, and plainly showed, by what he did, that he believed they were worth making. (Applause.) Those lines were carried out as well as men and materials could carry them out, and in a most appropriate manner. No money was foolishly wasted in fine work, but the work was substantial, and would bear comparison with any. and it would remain when both Mr. Brassey and he were gone as a monument of what such work ought to be. (Applause.) He (Mr. Robertson) asked them to drink a bumper to the health of Messrs. Brassey and Field. (Applause.) Mr. Field returned thanks for himself and parter. The Chairman wished fully to endorse everything Mr. Robertson had said respecting Messrs. Brassey and Field, and at the same time to bear witness to the excel- lent conduct, generally speaking, of all the men engaged on the line. ( Hear, hear.) They had been engaged for two winters through about five miles of his property, where he had a few pheasants, and he was not aware that he had lost one of them. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Robertson asked them to drink the health of a most excellent man, Iir. Reid. (Applause.) There was no one to whom they owed more for the practical carrying out of the workr, and he did his duty towards all shareholders, contractors, owners of property, and shareholders. (Applause.) Mr. Reid said he thanked thetn all most sincerely. He could make railways, but he could not make speeches. (Laughter and applause.) Mr. Wagstaff said he had permission to propose a toast which he was surely would meet with a warm re- ception. It was the health of the visitors—the ladies and gentlemen who had honoured them with their pre- sence that day. He would couple with the toast the name of Major Fitzmaurice. (Applause.) Major Fitzmaurice returned thanks in a humorous speech. Mr. Tottenham, in proposing the Ladies, said the Vale of Llangollen ought to be prood of the fair lepre- sentatives sent to Corwen that day. (Applause.) He believed the original Jenuy Jones of Llangollen was not present, but he was sure there were many others there who might with equal justice have been celebrated in immortal verse. (Laughter and ap- plause. ) Captain Reid responded on behalf of the Ladies. The Chairman gave the health of Mrs. Robertson. (Applause.) Mr. Robertson returned thanks on behwlf of Mrs. Ro- bertson. Major Fitzmaurice gave the health of the navvies of the United Kingdom, and spoke in high terra of their general character and conduct, as eompared with those of similar classes in other countries where he had tra- velled. (Applause.) Mr. Reid humorously responded, and the proceedings concluded with a cheer for Cymru," proposed by Mr. Robertson. At night the display of fireworks was successfully car-, rierl out under the management of Mr. Walter Jones and Dr. Walker; after which the town was restored to its usual quietness- No acceident or occurrence what- ever took place to mar the pleasures of the day. Our correspondent adds :—Whilst some folks were at- tracted by the towm rejoicings, many sauntered in lawns and woods, and visited the country. Trout fishing in the Dee and Alwen. were indulged in by young gentle- men, whilst others pairing in style proceeded tip-the lovers' walks through the Plas woods" and liP, the Pigin," where a. bird's eye view of the town is most commanding. Some- amused themselves in carving their names on the rough stones constituting the scale round the Prince of Wales' tower, and passed their just censure upon those who may be inclined to disfigure the inscription stone commemorating the royal wedding. Here we have such, various beautiful views. East, in the distance, is the Llantysilio rocks with the objects we have noticed on our way from Llangollen along the line. Quite opposite on the other side of the vale is Caer Drewyn and the iHtinous walla nearly half-a mile in circumference. Here Owen Gwynedd was posted when preparing to repel the invasion of Henry II., and here Owen Glyn- dwr retreated when threatened by Henry IV. Looking towards Ruthin in the far distance we see Moel Famma. and our attention is called to a volume of steam indicating the coming up of the train from, the Vale of Clwyd. We see it stop at Gwyddelwernj and directly" puff, puff," it comes through the Trewyn, cut- ting, and over the Alexandra bridge on the Dee into the station. A little west is Rug Chapel, which is, very ancient and worth a visit, and a little further on is Rug Hall with its extenive parks and plantations, where Wm. Wagstaff, Esq., resides, and where the late Sir R. W. Vaughan formerly, resided; and still further on iu the long distance, Druid Hall, the lime works, and, shifting our position a little south, we are in full view of the Vale of Llandrillo Crogeu wood and grounds in the far distance, and the turning of the Dee- down, makes this a most pleasant sight. We should not omit the beautiful houses of Hendwr. Rhydyglafes, Tyfos, Gwerclas Hall, Vaerdre- all, and Hafod y calch, with the Grove Houses, and Bryntirion Villa; and quite un- der our nose is Glandwr and Penybont, and close thereto the Corwen road bridge, where we have the most pretty sight of the Dee from iayii Tegid to Chester. Heath and gorse is direct to the south, a capital ground to walk for an appetite, whilst Erasmus's w-all with its saline production, bids the invalid to taste and try what does not appear-good to the eve, but when, taken soon tells a tale. After a, glance at the Himalaya of our coui try looming in the far far distance, we proeeed down to Corwen back; and as our party are large and hungry we proceed in separate companies for our luncheon, and our report is that for promptness and good cooking, with cheerful countenances and reasonable charges, we can commend, all our Corwen entertainers to the res- pectable of the whole world. On Saturday all the navvies and workmen on the line at Corwen were entertained to a dinner at the tent, at the expense-of H. Robertson, Esq., at which Dr. Walker presided. After the removal of the cloth the usual loyal and patriotictoosta were proposed by the chair- man, and vociferously responded to, The Chaitnian,next gave the healthiof Mr. Reid, the contractor. He. said Mr. Reid was one of the noblest men England ever produced, with. whose health he coupled the namesof Mr. Brassey, Mr. Field, and Mr. Robertson. These gentlemen deserved great credit, alld as the navvies, &c- were such strong fellows, he wished them to. use the- utmost strength &f their lungs to give them cteere. Mr. Reid returned thanks. The Chairman called Daniel Williams, a young lad who works on the line, to sing, acd who sung some very amusing songs* which created gjeat merriment. Richard Williams proposed the very good health of Mr. Reid once more in Welsh. Joseph Wright next sung a. song called "Paddy on the railway." Mr. Reid got up and saict he was flattered as being a clever fellow for making the railway from Llangolleu to Corwen but he said had there (lot been stronger hands than his there would have been no railway. H e also said the navvies hud been most faithful and obe- dient to whatever he told them to do h&,tlways found them ready and willing to undertake any task. He said the company were much pleased with the line; but he thought when they would have to pay for it they would not brag so mroh, (Laughter.) They wanted to go on to Bala, and said these chaps were to help them. He was truly sorry he could not speak Welsh, but he hoped most of them understood what he said. He wished them very good health, and hoped that no one of them I would ever have to lie in bed without a clean shirt on I and a shilling in his pocket. (Loud and prolonged cheers.) John Jones, one of the navvies, briefly responded, and referred that iir, Reid had said it was them that had I made the railway; but he said Had there been no good ￼ manager no road would ever have been made, and j thanked Mr Reid for his good behaviour and kindness J always towards them. (Cheers.) Mr. Thos. H. Lloyd said there was one thing that he should feel most sorry to let it pass without taking notice of, namely—Thanks to Mr. Walker and Mr. Moltby for the very great interest they had taken in this event. He referred to the great sport and jollifica- tion they had had on Friday, and observed that Mr. Walker and Mr. Moltby had lost considerable time in going about oollecting subscriptions, and that they had been wide awake about it. They had collected in such a very short time upwards of ;C21, and it was through them that they had enjoyed themselves aomuch. If they all felt thankful as be did to these gentlemen, he wished them to show that by giving them good cheers, which was accordingly done. "Mr?S ?nded on behalf of himself and Mr. M&,and thanked all hands for giving such assistance iu all that was done the day before. He proposed the health of Mr. Mouseley, who hadt?ken so ^in- ?stineve?thing that was done that day, and espe- cially in erS the arch which spanned the road. (Lond cheers.) ? ?ley responded, and said he only wished he deserved such praise as proposed and shown him. He had o?y h? en connected with the line some few months, and he had always received the greatest respect from the inhabitants oi this town and all the w»r^en,'°tlle line. He wished them long life and happiness. (Cheers.) Mr. Reid said there was one thing if not two yet left out, but one in particular. He said the clergy had been left out; but he said they could make railroads without clergymen, but not without doctors, and he proposed the very good health of Dr. Walker. (Loud and prolonged cheering.) The navvies wanted to chair Mr. Reid round the room, but he declined the honour, and they agreed to carry his hat, which Mr. Reid said would be as well and he would thank them the same. The "Press" having been duly honoured, the very good health of Mr. and Mrs. Moltby by the chair was received with acclamation. Dr. Walker was carried from the pavilhon to the, hotel, which ended a most pleasant entertainment. The line, we should observe, is 10 miles in length. Mr. Reid, the contractor, and Messrs. Phillips, the un- der-contractors, are held in the greatest esteem by their men, and apparently by those who are above them. Iu addition, we need only mention the name of Henry Robertson, Esq, the chief promoter of the line, and who resides at Crogen Hall, near Corwen—his kind and charitable disposition, as also that of his lady, have en- deared them to all who come in contact with them. On Monday, her Majesty's Inspector came over the line, and we learn he has reported favourably of the works, which if 00 will enable the line to be opened for traffic by the 1st of May. We should also mention that the much desired arrangement between this Company and the Vale of Clwyd Railway, to run into the same station at Corwen, has been effected.

I REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN* TRADE DURING THE PAST WEEK. Although rather colder, the weather continuing fine through the past week, vegetation has everywhere made corresponding progress. Some complaints of the young wheat are indeed still made, but the general reports are favourable. The grass lands already have a good bite for cattle; the backward sowings of the Lent corn have sprung up, or are springing vigorously, and all that is wanted is continuance of favourable weather. The intermixture of rain with sunshine has preserved the variable character of the month hitherto, and the extra heat has com, pensated for the deflciencea of March. England, it appears, does not stand alone in this respeot; as France, Belgium, ITol-> land and Germany has participated in the geniality of the month; and with no future disaster or untoward changes. Europe aÁd the world generally has the prosttafc thft n««fi. sary supplies will no be witheM.
