FESTINIOG. 1 f«!wor Whitworth gave one of his talented and POPu'j ?krmancee in the New Market Hall, on Friday last. ?' au*euce, which was numerous, repeatedly expressed S?'r approvat and delight, by rounds of hearty applause, m wonderful command which Mr. W. had over the actions of 3 Ioyø on the platform (who, it should be 't?d were Teaidentt here) was marvellous, they were øimply w the will of the lecturer compelled to go S?ugh a variety of eccentric and very amusing actions. PRESENTATION or A TRSTIIIONIAL.- We have the pleasure to inform our readers, that a tribute of respect, In the shape of a handsome gold watch, was on Tuesday last presented to the Rev. D. Parry, late curate of St. David's Church, Festiniog, on his resigning that appoint. ment The testimonial was voluntarily subscribed for, by a few friends, as a small token of their appreciation of the Rev. gentlemen's labours here, during a period of four years. In addition to the watch, which bears an appropriate inscription, the surplus money enclosed in a handsome purse, remains still to be presented. Mrs. JrLlev with her usual liberality and kindly feeling, has handsomely subscribed a similar sum as she before gave towards the late incumbent's testimonial. It is, as we before stated, with feelings of pleasure, we record this token of gratitude towards the Rev. Mr. Parry, who has always been iudefatiguable in discharging the important duties with which he has been entrusted. We under- bid the Rev. gentleman has been appointed to a Curacy at Gwalchmai, Anglesey, and wish him God speed in his new field of labour.
MACHYNLLETH FATAL AccMENT.-An inquest w&s held at this town on the 28th instant, at the Wynnstay Arms Hotel, be- fore Captain Lloyd, coroner, and a respectable jury, on the body of David Evans, a little boy aged seven years, who met with a fatal accident a few days previously, under the following circumstances. It appears from the evidence, that the deceased, in company with other lads of about the same age, was playing in the vicinity of the railway bridge which crossed the turnpike road leading from this town to Dovey Bridge. In close proximity to the road, and running parallel to it, lies the tramway leading from the Corris Slate Quarries to the hamlet of Derwen las, for shipping abroad. This tramway, unfor- tunately, is quite open to the road, having never as yet being properly fenced in. Here number of young urchins who climb on the loaded trams in their transit and ex- pose themselves to great peril, and it often happens that if the drivers expostulate with them and send them away heavy volleys of reproach fall upon the heads of the unfortunate dri vers as they pass through the Garshiwn from the fond parents who reside near. The deceased child climbed behind one of the waggons, unknown to the driver, and by some mishap fell down, and the wheels of the loaded trams passed over his legs. The left leg was completely smashed, and the right an- kle joint was laid open. The poor lad was carried to a neighbouring cottage, and Doctors Lloyd and Owen were called in, and amputation of the left leg was thought advisable. The poor fellow bore the operation with great patience, but little hopes were entertained of his recovery, and he died the following day. It was strongly recommended that Mr. Savin, the proprietor of the line, be respectfully requested to order that the tramroad be properly fenced, and that due caution be exercised by his servants in driving the trams along the line.
NEVIN. I A ROMANTIC LITTLE STORY.-Some two years ago a splendid new schooner was launched from the shipbuild- ing yard of R. Thomas, Esq., called the "Mary Hannah," the vessel being transferred by the uncle as a gift to his nephew. After the vessel had been bought, we have been told that in consequence of an engage- ment between the nephew and a certain young lady, the vessel was called the Mary Hannah." However, if we are rightly informed, the engagement of the nephew and the fair one was brought to a sudden termination, and the consequence was the above splendid vessel was sold by public auction, and the master of the little schooner was thrown out of berth. He commenced business as a provision merchant in this town, being scarcely able to make both ends meet; however, a letter came down from the uncle, the original owner of the vessel, stating that in consequence of the vessel being sold and the master being thrown out of berth, he had resolved to make some slight compensation to him for the loss he sustained, owing to the vessel being sold, and on Saturday last the master received from the uncle the munificent sum of one thousaud pounds.

I ARE THE APPROACHES TO CARNARVON PIER PRIVATE PROPERTY t I To the Editor of the North Walet Chronicle. Sir,-Will you allow me to ask, through the medium of your valuable columns, by whose authority are the approaches to Carnarvon Pier always obstructed with huge pieees of timber. Some two months ago, I was walking near the Pier one night, when I fell over a thick piece of timber, and very nearly fell into the water. Last night, my wife and I took a stroll, and I knocked all the skin of my shins again over some of these pretty old pieces of timber. Not being a trustee of the Harbour, as the Yankees would say, I guess they would not allow me to interfere with a public thoroughfare in so flagrant a manner to the danger and inconvenience of respectable ratepayers, and their wives and families. I If you think this short letter will meet the eye of those who have the power of stopping the nuisance by insert- ing it, you may do good to the shins of the Carnarvon- ites, and oblige Your obedient servant, ALPHA. I April 30th, 1865. ALPHA.
DESECRATION OF BEAUMARIS CHURCH YARD. To the Editor of the North Walet Chronicle. Sir,—In the last impression of the CHRONICLE, a very opportune letter was written under this heading by a poor widow, condemning the too oft custom amongst the hobby-dehoys of the town who congregate in the churchyard, long before the time of Sunday School and divine service, to play, as your correspondent justly says, at a game called "Follow the leader." And she is not the only person who complains. I heartily crave per- mission to endorse the sentiments of your correspondent, and would wish to know whose duty it is to put a stop to this shameful practice, for I am fully convinced, apart from the gross insult shewn to the dead, there is a just cause to be indignant at the way tombstones are tram- pled upon, and many of them defaced and loosened, which incurs upon friends and relations unnecessary ex- pense. I beg to thank the poor widow for writing so oppor- tunely. For a neighbour of mine, as well as myself, do often tip, in consequence of some one's neglect. I hope the churchwardens of the place will be alive to their duties, and exercise the functions of their office consistent with the oath which they have taken. Yours, &c., M. JONES. I
LLA.NDUDNO. MARBIAOU FESTIVITIES —This fashionable watering place was the scene of much gay doings and considera- ble excitement on Thursday, the 27th ult., consequent on the marriage that day of Thomas Ferguson A nsdell, Fsq., solicitor, of St. Helen's, Lancashire, to Miss Euiilie Moore, youngest daughter of Edward Moore, Esq., of wire House, Llandudno. The prominent position oc- • 1 l.v both gentlemen in the place, and the high ?mati? in which th? family are held, added to the ?obtrusive and engaging manned of the amiable young ?invested the event with more than usual interest, rl which exhibited itself in the numerous assemblages ??.v°a? ted to witness the ceremony which took place ™ the 0 above named day at St. George's Church, as elsewhere recorded. The bridal cortege, which cons?t- ea oi six carriages, left ?l-re House at eleven o clock, .? ? the ceremony was most ably and impressively per. 10 med bv the Rev. H. E. F. Vallancey, M.A., vicar of St. Helen's, assisted by the Hev. Anwyl Roberts, M.A., 'of Llandudno.. The bride's attire was tbe sub. ject of general admiration. She wore a dress of white satin trimmed most elegantly with ermine, and a wreath of orange blossoms, depending from which, and merely enveloping the whole ifgure, was a magnificient veil; and the general effect was most charming. The bride was attended by four bridesmaids, namely, Miss Moore, Miss Agnes Moore, Miss Ansdell, and Miss Lucy Ans- dell, all of whom were most elegantly attired; and they were esquired by the bridegroom's best man, Mr. Lamb, and the other groomsmen, namely, Dr. Ricketts, Mr. McBride, and Mr. John Ansdell, jun. There were also present a large party of the numerous relatives and friends of both families, who evidently evinced a warm interest in the proceedings. The ceremony altogether had a most pleasing and charming effect, and the happy couple left the church to the noble strains of the Wedding March," beautifully rendered on the organ by Mr. Owens, organist of St. George's. The bridal party returned to the hospitable residence of the bride's father, where a truly elegant and splendid dejeuner was laid out, supplied by Holland, of Chester, to which a party of thirty guests sat down, and did most ample justice to the good things before them. The usual toast—princi- pal amongst which, of course, was that of "Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Angdell"-were afterwards given, followed by bumpers of champagne, and everything, it needs scarcely be said, "went merry as a marriage bell." The happy pair left en roltte for the English lakes at four o'clock, and as their carriage drove away, they had to run the gauntlet of the usual slower of old slipper," accompanied with best wishes for their future happiness. The day's re- joicings were brought to a close at Moore House, by a grand ball and supper given by the bride's parents in honour of the occasion, and which was attended by a large and brilliant party, and where general hospitality and enjoyment reigned supreme until an early hour.
PORTMADOC. SHIP ARRIVAL.—On Saturday morning last, the vessel "Wave," captain Meyrick Ellis, arrived at Portmadoc from Hamburgh with a large cargo of wheat, 1200 quar- ters, consigned to Messrs. Meshach and John Roberts, millers, Portmadoc. This is the largest cargo of wheat ever consigned to this port, Another cargo of 800 qrs. is expected in a few days. TnE RAILWAY.—The works on the Carnarvonshire railway are being proceeded with with very commenda- ble activity, and all along the route from Penrhyn Deu- draeth to Penygroes, also to Pwllheli. The works are very heavy in the rocks near to Wern, and on in the di- rection of Criccieth, but great progress is being made, and in a month or two the line, so far as the road" is concerned, will be pretty nigh made from Portmadoc to Pwllheli. The sub-contractors (Messrs. Taylor) are like- wise pushing on the works with much zeal between Afon Wen and Penygroes. There are a great number of men employed in all the departments, and the wages given are comparatively high. Stonemasons, especially, are in great demand for making the bridges (the Messrs. Evans being the chief contractors in this important branch), and they are paid from 4s. 6d. to 5s. per day, and almost any number of men could find employment at this rate of wages. This state of things interferes seriously with the local builders, who find a difficulty in procuring men, even at the above high wages, and an immigration of mechanics into the district would be looked upon as a fortunate occurrence. This, then, is THEIR harvest time. THE VOLUNTEER BAtD.-This amateur band, which is now composed chiefly of mere youths, is exciting the admiration of the whole town by the excellence of their playing. The leader is Master F. H. Strouger, who, considering that he has had no regular musical educa- tion, conducts the band in a very marvellous manner, and to the astonishment of every one. The old hands" have all nearly dropped off, one by one; but the juve- niles promise to fully equal them in merit, whilst they are a good deal more to be depended upon what- ever. SHIP DISASTER.—Intelligence arrived in the Port on Tuesday morning last of a disaster which befel the schooner New Blessing, Captain William Watkius, on Friday night last, and by which one man lost his life. It appears that the New Blessing was proceeding to Hamburgh with a cargo of slates, and she arrived in safety to off Bristol Channel. She was sailing easily before a nice breeze with most of her sails set, when one of the sailors, named Thomas Parry, son of Air. Thomas I'irrv, formerly captain of the Rose, proceeded up aloft to furl the royal sail. Whilst in the act of doing this, one of the topmasts broke, and striking against the other topmast, knocked it away likewise, and both fell over- board. Of course, the poor young man Parry fell with them into the sea and although the most energetic efforts were made by the captain and the others on board to rescue him, they failed in doing so, and he was drown- ed. As there was only a fair wind at the time, the eause of the disaster is not known but it is presumed, We believe, to be from a defect in the mast which first snapped. THE CHURCH IN PORTMADOC. » e have occasionally called attention to the fact that u. i Portmadoc, which is allowed on all hands to be an ng1134 colony, no religious services at all, in either church or chapel, were ever held in the English lan- SUage-Q uQimiy nowhere else to be found, even in North Wales. Mr. Ambrose, it is true, now and then, when he saw some conspicuous Englishman amongst his congregation, would speak a few words in English, but this was ail-though a very kindly act on his part, per- sonally speaking. Still this was not much for the mass of the English in the town, who, if not Independ- ents, had nowhere else to go, excepting to Tremadoc Church. Up to the present time, the Welsh Church in Port- madoc has been held in the National Schoolroom and at the present time, and under the ministrations of the Rev. Thomas Thomas, the congregation has become a very large one—much larger, in fact, than it ever was before, although a number of very able and popular preachers have been pastors of the church. The School. room is now crowded to excess at each service; and we are likewise happy to say, that under the superintend- ence of Mr. Grindley, the Sunday School is exceedingly well attended, and that the scholars are gradually in- creasing in numbers. A. church edifice, proper, is sadly wanted but owing to certain matters connected with the Tremadoc Estate, it is impossible to be obtained at present, as the site cannot be legally guaranteed, in perpetuity. This is much to be deplored, inasmuch as if a regular church were to be built, the stipend of the minister would be augmented by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners; where. as the present stipend is miserably inadequate to meet the expenses of a single person, much less those of a gentleman with a family. We are exceedingly glad, however, to learn that an effort is now being made, by the members of the Church, to permanently increase the salary of the minister by voluntary subscriptions and we trust the response will be met in a liberal spirit, as we are sure he richly merits it by his kindness, aeal, and indefatigable attention to the duties of his sacred office. But, as regards a service in the English language Several meetings have been held of late on the subject; but until Monday last, no definite conclusion was arrived at. Up to the present time, a full service has been held in the morning; a Sunday school in the afternoon; and another service, with a sermon, of course, in the even. ing. A service is also held on Tuesday evenings, with a sermon afterwards. If a service, therefore, was to be held in English on Sundays, the question arose as to when and at what time, as the minister could hardly be expected to prepare and deliver four sermons each week. This, then, was the principal point to be decided in the meeting held on Monday. The meeting was held in the Schoolroom, at 1 o'clock, when the following gentlemen were present:—Rev. E. Parry, Rector, in the chair; Rev. Thomas Thomas, mi. nister of the church Mr. Parry, Bank; Mr. Vaughan, Mr. Wm. Owen, Mr. John Thomas, Mr. R. I. Jones, Mr. Grindlev, schoolmaster, the Secretary, &e. After a good deal of conversation, It was proposed by Mr. Wm Owen, and seconded by Mr. Vaughan,—That an English Service, in the School- room, be held every Sunday afternoon, at three o'clock and that the Welsh service, in the morning, in future, be discontinued. This, on being put to the meeting, was carried unani- mously. It was then proposed by Mr. Wm. Owen, and carried nem. con.,— That the Sunday School be henceforth held in the morning, instead of in the afternoon, as it is at present. It was also decided that this new arrangement is to take place, commencing on Sunday week next. The meeting then discussed the matter of the Minis- ter's stipend, which was admitted was greatly too small for the services which he was called upon to perform. It was ultimately resolved to make a voluntary subscrip- tion, in order to add to it and the sum of X5 10s. was at once subscribed in the meeting for the pur- pose. The Secretary was likewise desired to correspond with the laity of the town and neighbourhood for their assist- ance, and we hope the response will be a liberal one, as the workman is worthy of his hire." PETTY SESSIONS.—Friday, April 28th.—Before O. Griffith, Esq. Drun.tenness.-Benjamin Briscoe was summoned by Mr. R. Wm. Price, Gelert Inn. Portmadoc, for being drunk and disorderly, and with refusing to quit the said inn, when requested to do so; it would seem likewise that he broke some glasses, for which he had paid. The complainant did not appear, and Inspector Davies informed the Court that he understood the parties had compromised the matter amongst themselves. Under these circumstances the case was dismissed, the complainant to pay the costs, 6s. 6d. The Adjourned, case of Drunkenness at Beddgelert.- A disorderly character, named Robert Williams, again appeared to answer to the charge of drunkenness, preferred against him by P.C. Richard Owen, the of- fence having taken place on the 1st of April last. Owens stated, that on the day in question, he was called in to the Saracen's head iun, where he saw the defendant drunk and fighting. When he got him out- side the door, he commenced to challenge another man, and he would not be quiet nor go home, until he (Owens) threatened to lock him up. He had been fined for a similar offence in J uly, last year. Fined 5s. with the costs, 10s. 6d. Selling Ale within prohibited hours.—Mrs. Williams, who keeps the Britannia Vaults, Tremadoc, was sum- moned by P.S. Griffith Roberts, for having her house open for the sale of beer at 8 o'clock in the morning of Good Friday last. Mrs. Williams said she was upstairs at the time, and knew nothing at all about it; but the servant girl de. nied that she drew ale for any one. As this witness was not, however, produced, the defen- dant was fined Is. with 9s. costs. The money was paid Di-unkenness.-A navvie, named William Millington, was charged by P.C. Richard Hughes, with being drunk and incapable in Portmadoc, on Tuesday night, the 25th ult. Inspector Davies said the defendant was lying down upon the road quite helpless, and he removed him to the lock-up for safety. He had known the defendant for some time, and he was always a steady quiet man. Let off on paying the costs, 4s. 6d. Drunk and riotous.-A tall strapping young man, named Ellis Roberts, was in custody, charged with being drunk and very disorderly on Tuesday week, the 23rd ult., at the Glaslyn Inn. The charge was proved by P.C. Richard Hughes, who described the defendant as having been very riotous. Fined 5s. and 7s. 6d. costs, and, in default, 7 day's imprisonment. The same defendant was charged, with acting in a similar way at the White Lion Inn, Criccieth, on the previous day, Monday, the 24th instant. Anue Griffiths, servant at the above Inn, said, on the day in question, he went into the kitchen, and called for a glass of ale, which, when brought in, he refused to pay for, and it was taken away from him. He re- turned later in the day and began breaking the windows aifd a glass, the damage of which amounted to 2s. 4d. He was tipsy at the time. As the defendant belongs to the Militia, which he said was to assemble on Monday, this case was adjourn- ed for a week, in order that it may be ascertained whe- her his statement was a fact or not. Two other militiamen, working as navvies in the dis- trict, applied for money to enable them to proceed to England to join their regiment, which was about to as- semble for the annual drill. The application was refused, but they were advised to proceed either to Carnarvon or to Bala, where, no doubt, they would be supplied with the necessary amount of money, as there were Militia Head quarters in each of those towns.
PENRHYN DEUDRAETH. I The Rape case at Cwntorthin. tVe stated in our last number in the report of the Petty Sessions, held here on Thursday week, that a young woman, named Mary Jones, charged John Williams, tailor, Tanygrisiau, Festiniog, with attempting to commit a rape upon her, on the 20th of April last; but that the case was not con- cluded before the last post left. We now give the evi- dence of the chief witnesses, the hearing of which, oc- cupied the Court for about four hours. Mary Jones, on being sworn, said,—I am n servant maid, living with one, Griffith Thomas, at C morthin. Griffith Thomas' wife is my sister I went out of my sister's house on Thursday last, the 20th inst., between 7 and 8 o'clock at night, and I went to Nantfrasgan. About 10 o'clock on the same night, on my return home and when near Tygwyn, I was met by the prisoner. He said to me Ellen" and I answered Sir," I also added "you must be mistaken," when he replied No." He then put his arm around me, and we walked so together till we were by the Cwmorthin Junction Bridge. After crossing the bridge he took a faster hold of me up to this time he had behaved in a decent manner enough. (The witness here described the nature and extent of the :1.-ssault, which of course is not fit for publication.) She then continued,—I did not shout out, but I told him I would do so, when he said he would shout also. I do nut know what he meant by saying this, unless that he found that I was stronger than he. The reason that I did not shout out was that I found I was myself able to master him. The witness then went more into the de- tails of the struggle, and the clothes which she then wore were produced in Court. On leaving, the prisoner requested me to shake hands with him, but I refused to do so, and I told him I knew who he was. There was a house not far off, but I do not know whether it is in- habited or not. If I had shouted out, no one in the house could have heard me. I did not know the priso- ner before, but I am certain he is the person who assault- ed me. When I left him, I went to John Humphreys' house, as I was too much frightened to go home that t. night, I did not meet anyone on the road, and the first person I met in John Humphreys' house was his wife, and ltold her all that had happened. Tygwyn was the nearest house to the spot where the struggle took place. By the Prisoner.—I stated the same as I do now, when I was before Mr. Casson. Elizabeth Humphreys, said,-I reside at Dolrhedyn Terrace, Tanygrisiau, and on Thursday night last, I re- member Mary Jones, the -complainant coming to my house at about half-past ten o'clock. My husband and the children were at supper, when she came in, I saw that she had her hair down over her face, and her head was covered with dust, and the back part of it particu- larly so. There were several rents in her clothes, which she brushed in my house she looked as if she wel every much confused. I asked" Mary, whatever is the matter with you 1" to which she replied I do not know exactly what is the matter with me," I then asked again, when she stid some rough lad had abused her," she told me what he had done to her, but she did not know who he was, but she had plenty of marks to identify him; that he would be sure to have them, and that his hands were like those of a tailor's. She stayed at my house all night, she described the man that abused her, as having a little hair upon his chin, was of dark complexion, and his eyes were rather wigked. The complainant was here recalled,—The most par- ticular marks I have to identify the prisoner, are his features, and his moustache, his appearance is now the same as then, with the- exception of his being paler, and his having shaved his whiskers which were under his chin. I know that he had whiskers under his chin be- cause his face was close to mine. I thought he was a tailor because his hands were soft and cold. By the Prisoner—The reason why I have taken pro- ceedings against you, is because you abused me. P C. Wm. Roberts was next examined, he said,-t am a police-officer stationed at Blaenau, Festiniog, I appre- hended the prisoner on Friday last, on the charge of at- tempting, &c. Mary J ones was with me when 1 did so. I found the prisoner at the shop of Mr. Robert Williams tailor and draper, Tanygrisiau, and he was then with five others. The complainant recognised the prisoner, and selected him out of the others, stating This is the man which was with me last night." When I charged him with the offence, 68 replied I never saw her." Healso said he had the same clothes on, on Thursday night as when he was apprehended. Since his apprehension he has shaved his whiskers from under his chin. What made me ask him what clothes he had on, on the night in ques tion was to ascertain whether they would correspond with the description given of him by the complainant, which they did in every particular. By the Prisoner-I had to ask you three times what clothes you had on. You had only a trousers and waist- coat on when your jacket was taken off. It was in your master's presence that I charged you. Mr. R. Williams stated in answer to my question, that it was a quarter to ten o'clock at night when I left your shop, and that you came back at half- past ten o'clock. The Prisoner then made a long statement, the sub- stance of which wns that a young girl came to his mas- ter's house from the Society, in company with his mas- ter and mistress, that after he had freaked with her for some time, he at the request of his mistress sent her home. That on his return he went out again to see a young girl, who was in service at a farm in the neigh- bourhood, that he doubtless should have gone into the house with her, but that her mother was in the house and that then he returned to his lodgings, when it was just half-past ten o'clock when he went to bed. The prisonor was then committed to the Quarter Ses- sions to take his trial for the offence. It was after three o'clock when this case was conclu- ded.
PWLLHELI. TEA TREAT.—On Friday, the 28th ult., the Pwllheli, Llannor, and Denio Church Schools assembled at the National School, and marched in procession to a field near Pensarn to partake of a liberal supply of tea and "bara brith." The procession was headed by Messrs. Roberts and Toleman, the churchwardens. The latter were followed by a banner of chaste and elegant work- manship, and bearing the appropriate inscription of "Portha fy wyn." It was the gift of Miss Jane Hughes, Church-street, and highly creditable to her taste and skill. The very young lambs of the flock were carefully carried in a conveyance. Having reached the field, grace was sung, and the youthful host, comfortably seated on the daisy spangled green, commenced opera- tions in a vigorous and determined style. The pyramids of cake, industriously erected by the churchwardens, disappeared as if by magic. This important business being over, athletic sports and out- door games were freely indulged in. Prizes were given for running, leap- ing, hopping, &c. Then we had a most delightful April showers. Never were they more bountiful or more welcome, as they consisted of cakes, walnuts, and sweets descending in delightful profusion among the crowd. The children of the National School were then arranged in a kind of hollow square, and sang several songs in a spirited manner. A section was examined in mental arithmetic by the master, Mr. Jackson, and the best awarded with books, B. Ellis, Esq., of llhyllech, kindly acting as adjudicator. "Three times three" were given to the vicar, and in such a manner as plainly indi- t2 that all were fully sensible of how much they were indebted to him for the pleasure of the day. Three cheers for the ladies and for the teachers termi- nated the proceedings, and after old and young had ex- hibited a decided capacity for enjoyment and innocent recreation, all dispersed with light hearts and smiling faces. Any thought of the treat cannot be separated from the kindness and the liberality of the family at Pensaru. Mr. Roberts placed the field at our disposal, and Mr. Roberts (jun.), with the Misses Roberts, were indefatigable in their exertions in securing satisfactory arrangements so as to ensure complete success. The su- perintendence of the athletic sports fell mainly to the lot of the Rev. J. Williams, our respected curate, to whom great praise is due for this admirable supplement to the tea and cake. It materially assisted the digestive organs, which must have been severely taxed by such a hearty feast. Play is as much a part of a child's nature as eating and drinking. It is our duty to contribute to- wards each other's happiness and well-being. Dr. Dwight says "that he who makes a child happier for half-an-hour is co-worker with God." Every man of common sense must coincide with A. K. H. B. in his strong denunciation of the child taming of "drab-coated." Altogether, the treat passed off with no inconsiderable eclat, and undoubtedly will form to many in after days one of the most pleasant reminiscences of childhood shy, money-making rascals. In connection with the treat, we must not forget Mr. Robert Williams, our ubiquitous police-officer, who effectually prevented the intrusion of stragglers and camp followers. Among those present, besides those we have already incidentally mentioned, we noticed the following, comprising the elite of the town and neighbourhood—A. Jones Williams, Esq., and Mrs. Williams, Gelliwig Hall; Miss Williams, Ivy House; Hunter Hughes, Esq., and the Misses Hughes, Penmaen Castle; T. Hughes, Esq.; Mrs. and Miss Lloyd, Plas Tanyrallt; Miss Dorothy Roberts, Penlan-street; Rev. H. Richards, Llangian; Mrs. Jones, Vicarage; Miss Williams, Brynberllan; Miss Evans, Rectory, Llanllechid; Miss Thomas, Plas du J. Evans, Esq., Grammar School; Mr. Michael Roberts; Mr. and Mrs. Chambers; Mr. and Mrs. Larkins, Bank; Mrs. Griffith, Hermitage; Mrs. W. Hughes and party; Miss Roberts, Bodfel Hall; Miss Hughes, Cefnmaeu; Mr. R. O. Pughe; Mr. G. Jones; Mr. Hughes, Caroline-square; Miss Jones, Picton Castle, &c., &c. As the invitation was extended to the church choir and members of the church, there was a great number of grown-up persons present, so that, including visitors, the numerical strength of those on the field must have exceeded 500. Thus we spent a most pleasant day- more than ever impressed with the possibility of render- ing an useful life, L Allegro," and making instruction amusing and amusement instruction.
A LADY GORED BY A Cow.—In Cheltenham, on Monday, two cows were being driven down the London- road, when one of them ran at two ladies- Mrs. Forbes and her daughter, of Ellenborough House, Charton Kings. Mrs. Forbes was fearfully gored, and at one time the beast fell upon her. Miss Forbes in the most courageous manner endeavoured to extricate her mother, and fortunately just at the moment a man named Par- ker was passing, and seized a fagot stick he commenced a vigorous attack upon the animal, and ultimately suc- ceeded in beating it off. Mrs. Forbes was removed in a faint and week condition to a howeadjacent, wh- she received medical attention, and was afterwarda convey- ed to her own homo.

BRIEF HISTORICAL NOTICES IN REFERENCE TO ANGLESEY. (TWELFTH NOTICE). A D. 1245. —King Henry being deeply mortified at the manner in which King David had opposed him, was re- solved to put an end to the perpetual skirmishes with one stroke; and in order to accomplish this, he invited over the Irish, who on landing in Anglesey, began to ra- vage and waste the whole island; but the inhabitants rose in a body, and depriving them of their ill-gotten plunder, forced them to their ships. A.D. 1257.—Kiug Henry despatched orders to his vassels to make a descent upon Anglesey. Llewelyn ap Gryffydd no sooner heard of the intention of the Irish, than he sent some vessels to intercept them, by which their fleet were defeated and forced back to Ireland. A.D. 1281.-Prince Llewelyn having disclaimed all homage to King Edward, he (the King) was resolved to punish him for his obstinacy. Edward's preparations forthe war were on a scale of unprecedented magnitude. The Cinque Ports fleet were ordered to disembark, and to make a descent upon Anglesey. On landing, they conquered the island, and without any mercy, put all that withstood them to the sword. The next military operation was to form a junction between the troops in Anglesey and the main body of the English army. This attempt was not so success- ful as was meant, and quite as successful as it deserved to be. The slaughter of the English was appalling. A.D. 1282.—Edward ordered a strong detachment of marines and other forces to take possession of Anglesey. The island was easily taken; the chief persons in it having supported the interests of Edward, agreeable to the oaths which they had taken at the late peace. It was at this juncture that Llewelyn the brave gave utterance to the following memorable words, which are worthy of lodgment in every Welshman's heart:—" We cannot contend for our liberties," exclaimed Llewelyn to his army, but forthwith our souls are threatened with perdition; we cannot resist temporal tyrants, but we are told it must be at the cost of eternal salvation. Better is it by a noble death in the field, to ascend at once to God and our fathers, than live on earth slaves to any mortal power." Not long after these patriotic words fell from the lips of the illustrious Prince, his fate was sealed. On the 10th of December, 1282, the noble-minded Llewelyn, the hero who had chased his foes upon a hun- dred fields, and made royal Edward quail a thousand times, was slain in a dingle or grove near Builth, South Wales. The hour had come when the vigorous arm of the heroic Prince unnerved, and his heart to yield its expiring sigh, and his glory to be shrouded in impene- trable darkness. Had he then fallen as warriors fall, Where spear strikes fire with spear Was there a banner for his pall, A buckler for his bier ? Not so-nor cloven shields nor helms Had strewn the bloody sod, Where he, the helpless lords of realms, Yielded his soul to God. He lay upon a green sward Beneath a darkening sky- A lone tree waving o'er his head, A swift stream rolling by; And feeble grew the conqueror's hand, And cold the valiant breast; He had fought the battles of the land, And his hour was come to rest." The death of Llewelyn suddenly changed the face of things. As a central spring, he had drawn into one point the strength of the nation-had directed its move- ments, and given them force and energy; but the spring being broken, all the parts became disunited, without motion, spirit, or efficacy. The Welsh were, as a body without a soul: the guiding hand was withdrawn; there was no one in whom they could confide as a commander. It was a solemn day. The throne was vacant, the sun was set, the nation was draped in mourning, and sat in sackcloth. Nearly 600 years have elapsed since this brave war- rior fell in his country's cause and hear it, ye men of Wales, up to this day, no suitable monument has been erected to his memory He lives in his fame Though lowly he sleeps in his grave, Our hearts shrine his name, Our tears bear the dust of the brave. Yes; memory hallows the field where his relics repose, And Freedom shall dawn o'er the land where his memory glows. (CONCLUDING NOTE.) I To the Editor of the North Wales CICronicle. Sir,—I now draw my Historical-Notices to a close. If what I have written has in any measure afforded pleasure and information to any of your readers my design in writing them has been answered. Hoping some one, far better qualified than myself, will con- tinue the subject. There is a wide and interesting field before them. I am, yours, &c., I THOMAS JACKSON. Gravesend, May 1st, 1865. THOMAS JACKSON.
The Times city article, in annonncing the death by suicide of Mr. Wm. Prescott, the head of the banking firm, says it was the result of a morbid condition which had manifested itself for many months past in intense fits of depression. His position in the City was high, alike from the universal regard felt for his personal cha- racter and his financial repute. He has left a large for- i tune and he had met with no monetary loss, either pri- vately or in connection with the bank, the remaining I partners in which are very doh.
I IIiøttUnntøuø. A woman gave birth to a child in a street, at Graves- end, a few days ago. Two men were killed in an ironstone pit at Paisley, on Monday, by the unexpected discharge of a shot" which they had made for blasting. Lord Palmerston is going on well, and it is expected that in a few days he will return to town quite re- covered. IJean Millman, of St. Paul's, was on Saturday elected corresponding member of the Academic des Sciences, Morales, et Politiques, in succession to Herr von Baumer. An immense flood has arisen at Three Rivers, Canada, half way between Montreal and Barthier, flooding the highways and a great space of the country to the depth of many feet. Property has suffered severely, and 47 persons are said to have been drowned. In the village of Lengenrieden, in Baden, all the dogs were found on the 11th of April to be infected with hy- drophobia. By order of the burgomaster, the whole of the village dogs were collected by the police and immediately put to death. In a letter from Nice, published in the Gazette du Midi, it is stated that the dying Czarewitch, while the Princess Dagmar and his brother Alexander were by his bedside, charged the latter with the continuance of his affection for his betrothed, and bequeathed her to him as his future bride. Two or three days ago an explosion of gunpowder took place at Messrs. Brunton and Co.'s Penhalick Safe- ty Fuse Works, near Pool station on the West Cornwall Railway, resulting in the death of two young women, and the total destruction by fire of the building in which the fuses were manufactured. The Spanish Government, wishing to procure the best cotton seed possible in order to extend the cultivation of that plant over the country; has had two sacks of seed of superior quality sent from Egypt through the Spanish consul. A portion of this seed is believed to be destined for the agriculturists of the province of Granada, in con- sideration of the efforts they have made to cultivate the land on the side of Madrid. It is stated in the Sunderland Herald that the toad, lately found by some quarrymen at Hartlepool, and an- nounced to be 6000 years old, is not a myth. The Rev. Robert Taylor, of St. Hilda's Parsonage, states that the toad is still alive, that it has no mouth, that it was found in the centre of a block of magnesian limestone 25ft. below the surface of the earth, and that it differs in many respects from all ordinary toads. PROOF POSITIVE.-Old John B- was a hypochon- driac and one of his chimeras was that he was a glass vessel. One day as he was taking a seat, his wife who was behind him, suddenly jerked his chair away, and he fell heavily to the floor. "There!" cried she, triumphantly, "that goes to prove what I always said; you are no more made of glass than I am, else you would have been broken into a thousand pieces I" According to the Toronto Leader, the following pas- sage occurred in a public prayer made by a Methodist preacher on the Sunday after the inauguration of Vice- President Johnson "0 Lord, may intemperance cease in our land! Especially may it cease among our officers and rulers. But, 0 Lord, if they are determined to get drunk in spite of all the warnings to the contrary, we beseech Thee not to permit them all to get drunk at one time." The official Gazette of Munich, dated April 26, con tains the following information respecting the young King of Bavaria, who has been in a delicate state of health for some time :—" His Majesty has not left his room for some days, and yesterday fever set in, and in- creased very much towards evening. To-day the fever- ish symptoms continue in an intermittent form. He suffers also from cold in the head, and from an affection of the bronchial tubes and neck." An on dit, which was circulated some weeks ago, that Mr. Baron Martin, having completed his term of 15 years' service, entitling'him to a retiring pension, was about to discontinue his labours as a puisne judge, has been revived within the last week. The Law Times says on this subject—" It is rumoured in Westminster Hall that Baron Martin is about to retire from the bench, and enjoy the leasure he has earned by long service. He is entitled to a retiring pension; and his private fortune is very ample." An Italian paper states that no fewer than 31 cases of of the disease which has carried off the Czarewitch—that is, meningite cerebro spinale-have occurred at Auerbach since the beginning of February, and that this disease is raging in the kingdom of Hanover, especially at Celle, Einbech, and in the neighbourhood of Cassel. Of 160 persons attacked by this malady, on an average 60 die of its effects. Since the beginning of March it has raged at Burgdorf, a small town near Schladen. The New York Times mention a curious incident of the pursuit of Lee's army During a skirmish be- tween a portion of the Twenty-fourth Corps and a brigade of rebel cavalry, General Reed, chief of staff to General Ord, being up at the front, suddenly recognised and old acquaintance in the person of General St. Clair Deering, commanding a brigade of South Carolina Cavalry. Whether they had been in former times friends or foes I cannot say, but they met now as foes, and, in full view of the opposing forces present, they held a tournament of death, fighting with pistols until, almost simultaneously, Reed fell dead, and Deering mortally wounded." LIBERTY IN FRANCE.—The Paris correspondent of the Express says—" About noon on Friday a gathering of over 500 students mustered ou Place Sorbonne, for the avowed purpose of proceeding in a body to the resi- dence of Mr. John Bigelow, and tendering their collec- tive sympathy on the late assassination of President Lincoln. They had pursued their route unmolested and peacefully, when, on crossing the Pont St. Michel, they were confronted by a posse of sergenta de ville, and ordered to disperse forthwith. Several arrests were made on the spot, while the main body retiring, separat- ed into dintinct groups, and continued, by various other streets, their efforts to reach the embassy, with what result does not appear." SINGULAR MATRIMONIAL TRANSACTION.—A man named Thomas Laws, a general dealer, in the Low-street, Sunderland, for the last twelve months has been living with a woman, who has a family to him. A few weeks ago, an old acquaintance of theirs, a native of the same town (Yarmouth), came over from Newcastle, where he has been living for some time and and working as a shoe- maker, for the purpose of renewing his acquaintance. After a conversation with them on matrimonial affairs, the shoemaker and the woman became enamoured of each other, and the shoemaker made a proposal to marry her. Laws was consulted, and at once fell in with the proposal. The shoemaker went back to Newcastle, put in the banns, and, as a manifestation of his approval of the affair, Laws purchased her some wedding things, went over to Newcastle one day last week, took her to the altar, and gave her away to the shoemaker. The marriage was duly solemnised, and the parties are now spending the honeymoon in Newcastle. SUICIDE OF ADMIRAL FITZROY.—Admiral Robert Fitzroy, the great prognosticator of the weather, has des- troyed his life by cutting his throat with a razor. The sad event took place at Lyndhurst House, Norwood, Surrey. From the information obtained, it appears that the unfortunate gentleman had for several days been in a very low state, but nothing particular was apprehended by his friends, who considered the marked change in his manner was owing only to over study. On Sunday morning, about half-past nine o'clock, he repaired to his dressing room for the purpose, as was supposed, of get. ting ready for church. He, however, was absent longer than was anticipated, and upon some of the inmates going to ascertain the cause they found the door of his dressing room locked from the inside) which, as might be expected, created some alarm, more especially as a low, gurgling noise was heard, as if the gallant admiral had been seized with a fit. A forcible entrance was made, when the unfortunate gentleman was found with his throat cut in a frightful manner, and a razor smeared with blood, with which he had inflicted the injury, close by his side. Medical assistance was at once sent for, and everything that humanity or surgical skill could devise was done to save the admiral's life, but be surviv- ed only two hours, when death terminated his suffer- ings. THR CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER AND THE ROAD MURDER.—A strange story is going the rounds which connects the Chancellor of the Exchequer's name with the domestic tale of tragic interest which the more start- ling incidents at Washington have for the moment cast comparatively into the shade. I do not vouch for its accuracy, but give it you as it is given at, the clubs. Not long ago, the Rev. Mr. Wagner is said to have im- parted in confidence to Mr. Gladstone, as a marvellous illustration of the power of the confessional, the rites of which are practised commonly by him and other clergy- men of the High Church school, that a young lady had owned to Iftlll that she had committed without detection the crime of murder; and that Mr. Gladstone had told his friend he would not be conscientiously justified in remaining the depositary of such a secret, violating, as that would be, the known obligation of our laws. What subsequently took place between the confessor and the unhappy girl none, of course, can tell. Her self-im- peachment before the magistrates, and the reverend gen- tlemen's careful repudiation of anything like instigation or inducement on his part, are likely to continue to be the topics of interminable controversy. It is impossible, however, not to feel that,, whether Constance Kent be a religious monomaniac or self-condemned criminal, 11 a, heavy blow and great discouragement" has been givoo to her act by the syafeem of confession as practised iu the Church of Englan&-Landm Cvmtpxdmt. of the itan- okodw Guardian* A Cork paper states that emigration to America has commenced again even more actively than was expected.. The Erin, of the" National" line, took away H50 persons from Queenstown on Wednesday last; the Inmaa steamer 450 on Thursday, and over 300 who could not be accommodated were left up to the middle of May, every berth having been taken a week ago. The Owl states that the Archbishop of Canterbury will shortly move for a royal commission to revise the Prayer Book; and that Lord Lyttelton is to move for a commission to inquire into the general working and efficiency of the Judicial Committee of Privy Coun- cil as a court of final appeal in ecclesiastical causes. Mr. John Rea, of Belfast, is again before the publio as the opponent of the whole power of the House of Commons. He persisted on Tuesday in speaking in a committee room when ordered to be silent. The chair- man finally ordered policemen to turn him out, and this was done, but not until Mr. Rea had warned the com- mittee that he had 4,500,000 of Irish Catholics at his back. THE DERBY MURDERER.—After the reprieve of the convict James Potter, it was thought by some that the aberration of mind was only temporary, owing to the excitement of the trial and the sentance of death follow- ed thereon, and that, with the quiet of an asylum, he might come into his normal state again. It may not be uninteresting to our readers to hear the opinion of the Superintendent Physician of the Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum, just now expressed in writing to a gentleman in this neighbourhood :—"In his mental state there is very little change-if anything he requires perhaps now less watching than on admission. His con- dition is that of muttering, incoherent imbeoillity-he is not likely to recover from the condition.Darby Mercury. AGED 140 YICARS.-The oldest man in America A Joseph Creley, a French American, born in Detroit, in September. 1726, and baptised there on the 18th of that month, and who is now residing in Chicago. He must have seen some of the sons and daughters of the Pilgrim Fathers. He was eight years Did when Washington was born, 33 when Wolfe was killed on the plains of Abram, and upwards of 50 when the declaration of independence was signed. He has been married three times, and has had two sons and three daughters. He is residing with, a great-grandson. His eldest son died four years ago, at the age of lilt. Creley is short, compactly built, and is likely to live live some years. He has lost all his teeth, but his bodily faculties are sound. He his drunk three glasses of whisky daily for many years, is a hard smoker, but simple in his eatiug. His memory is almost gone. In speaking of his long life a few days ago, he affectingly said-" Dieu m'a oublie" (God has forgotten me).-C-hicago Journal. ESCAPE FROM BRIGANDs.-The Pungolo of Naples gives some particulars of the escape from a band of brigands of Lieutenant de Marco, of the national guard, and a man named Autonio Santangeli. M. de Marco succeeded in saving himself by jumping from a pro- digious height into a valley, an exploit which none of the band dared to imitate. He resolved upon that course first from fiuding that the chief who held him as a hostage had determined to take his life, and next from perceiving that the snow in the valley lay deep, and would prevent him from breaking his limbs. The brigands: fired on him several times without effect, and pursued him down a winding path of the mountain, but he made good his escape. Santangeli was stabbed with a bayonet and left for dead, but, although grievously wounded, he succeeded in dragging himself along till he reached a house. The chiefs Fuoco and Guerra had demanded 2000 ducats for the ransom of Marco; they received 400, but, being dissatisfied, they raised the sum to 10,000. Hopes are entertained that the life of San- tangeli may be saved. MR. ANDREW JOHNSON AND HIS FAMILY.—Mr. Johnson's family resides at present in Nashville, Tennes- see, and consists of his wife and four children-two sons and two daughters. His son Robert is 29, and Andrew Johnson, jun., is 12 years of age. His two daughters, with their families also reside at Nashville, having been driven from their homes in Eastern Tennessee. One of Mr. Johnson's sons (Charles), a surgeon in the army, was thrown from his horse in the year 1863, and killed and Colonel Stover, a son-in-law, commanding the 4th Regiment of Tennessee infantry, was killed in the battle of Nashville, while gallantly leading his command, on the 18th of December. 1864. Judge Patterson, who is also a son-in-law of the President, lives in Nashville. Mrs. Johnson has been in very delicate health for some time past, and it is probable Mrs. Colonel Stover will preside over the presidential household. A cor- respondent who visited Mr. Johnson, at Nashville, in last July, writes—" I found him a very quiet, plain, un- assuming man, of only medium height, with a broad and well-balanced forehead, intelligent but not striking face, and in conversation slow and restrained. He had no theories, and seemed particularly to avoid them, but addressed himself to the great work of regeneration. He deplored the condition of the people, the oppressive aris- tocracy, and the want of any middle class spoke very wisely of Governor Bramlette and in all that he said seemed a sagacious, practical man. I felt much better after seeing him. For if he should be elected Mr. Lin- coln will have a most uncompromising supporter, and if he dies a very wise successor."
■ BREAKFAST BEVERAGE.—Homoeopathic Practitioners, and the Medical Profession generally, recommend cocoa as being the most healthful of all beverages. When the doctrine of homoeopathy was first introduced into this country, there were to be obtained no preparations of cocoa either attractive to the taste or acceptable to the stomach the nut was either supplied in the crude state, or so unskilfully manufactured as to obtain little notice. J. Epps, of London, homoeopathic chemist, was induced in the year 1839 to turn his attention to this subject, and at length succeeded, with the assistance of elaborate ma- chinery, in being the first to produce an article pure in its composition, and so refined by the perfect trituration it receives in the process it passes through, as to be most acceptable to the delicate stomach. For general use, Epps's cocoa is distinguished as an invigorating, grateful breakfast beverage, with a delicious aroma. Dr. Hassall, in his work Food and its Adulterations," says Cocoa contains a great variety of important nutritious principles every ingredient necessary to the growth and sustenance of the body." Again, As a nutritive, cocoa stands very much higher than either coffee or tea." Directions —Two teaspoonfuls of the powder in a break- fast cup, filled up with boiling water or milk. Secured in tin-lined i-Th., J-lb., and 1-lb. labelled packets, and sold at Is. 6d. per lb., by grocers, confectioners, and chemists. It is well known that the Teas imported from China for consumption in this country are artificially coloured, to impart a fictitious appearance of value. This is so gene- rally known that Companies have been formed for the sale of uncolotired Teas-a process not dfficult to accom- plish, by means of steam tube and drying pan, thus ren- dering a uniformity of colour and nature never yet arrived at. This is to be avoided by purchasing Himalaya Tea, which is strong and invigorating, being free from the poisonous colour put on China Tea. Sold only in packets at 3s. 4d., 4s., and 4s 4d. per lb. A list of local agents are in our advertising columns. INTERESTING TO LADIES.—At this season of the year, the important process of bleaching and dressing Laces and Linens for Spring and Summer wear commences, we would particularly call the attention of our fair read- ers to the Glenfield Starch, an artiele of primary im- portance in the getting up of these articles. The Glen- field Starch is specially manufactured for family use, and such is its excellence that it is now exclusively used in the Royal Laundry, and Her Majesty's Laundress pronounces it to be the finest Starch she ever used. Her Majesty's Lace Dresser says it is the best she has tried, and it was awarded two Prize Medals for its supe- riority. The manufacturers have much pleasure in-sta- ting that they have been appointed Starch Purveyors to H. R. II. the Princess of Wales. The Glenfield Starch is sold in packets only, by all Grocers, Chandlers &c., &c. IMPORTANT TO ALL WHO SING.-From Mr. E. Page, Director of the Choir, and Organist of St. Marie s Catholic Church, Newport, Monmouthshire: Having frequently suffered much from relaxation of the throat, 1 have often been obliged to resort to various preparations but since I have had the good fortune to try Dr. Locock's Pulmonic Wafers, I am now but seldom obliged to use them, for the extraordinary good effects they have produced are most surprising. Even when the throat appears to be completely exhausted, and the voice to be nearly gone, two or three (at most four) will, in the short space of half an hour or so completely restore its flexibility and power, and they do not act as a mere temporary exciting lemedy, nor do they leave any lassitude after. Dr. Locock's Wafers give instant reliefand a rapid cure of asthma, consumption, coughs, and all disurders of the breath and lungs. They have a most pleasant taste. Price Is. l(\ 2s. 9d., and 4s. 6d. per box. Sold by all druggists. Beware of coun- terfeits. REDUCTION OF INFANTILE MORTALITY BY THE USE OF VR. DE JONGH'S LIGHT-BROWN COD LIVER OIL.- The following communication to the Medical Times and Gazette, by Thomas Hunt, Esq., Medical Officer of Health to the populous districts of Bloomsbury and St. Giles, describing the simplest, safest and most effectual means of maintaining and restoring the health of infants, will ba read with peculiar interest: "In badly nourished infants, Dr. de Jongh's Light-Brown Cod Liver Oil is iuvaluable. The rapidity with which two or three tea- spoonfuls a-day will fatten a young child is astonishing. The weight gained is three times the weight of the oil swallowed, or more; and, as children generally like the taste of I)r' de Jongh's Oil, and when it is given them, often cry for more, it appears as though there were some prospect of deliverance for the appalling multitude of children who figure in the weekly Bills of Mortality, issued from the Office of the Registrar-General. Dr. de Jongh's Light-Brown Cod Liver Oil is sold only in capsuled imperial half-pints, 2s. 6d.; pinta, 4s. 9d.; I quarts, 9s by his sole consignees, Ansar, Harford, and Co. 77, Strand, London; and by respectable chemists.
