The Guardians did not see why they should embarass themselves with duties the law did not impose upon them. That their duty was simply to compel parties t" remove nuiMiiees olf their property and the Governors having a competent local agent at Llanberis to hiiperin- tend their works, could themselves do them tnuch bet- than any other persons r»ud Oil the motion of Mr. Uohert Jones, llatodycoed, se- conded by Mr. Thomas Richardson, Directions were given to reply to this letter by stating that the Guardians declined to accede to the application, and that if the nuisance be not forthwith removed, pro- ceedings without further notice would be instituted against the its lemoval. The nuisance complained of was described by Dr. Jas. MoU it (Vrvan, aud others, as a large accumulation of pu'rid matter, which had collected in trontofthe Ileuses in G->odui:m-street, giving oil' most offensive and poison- ous g.i^es, subjecting the inhabitants of the street, and others in the neighbourhood, tit great risk from attacks of i'ewr, cholera, aud other diseases. A tlie document,containing this description, was l'onvarded to Mr. Thomas, the Local Agent, re- questing him to lay it without loss of time, before the Trustees, Tin- following is an extract from the repoi-t of Dr. Maughan upon nuisances in the Union — uAi^s Coedy.ldo!.

I (1,('1',1. lit!k informed the Hoard thaton Wed- luslav I a t he rec.Mved from Mr. John Williams, sur- g, on, of the lirm of Iv b rts and Williams, a .-tat -incut that he bid bevii called alvoul one o\-h>ck that nmrning, to see a patient whom he found suffering from all the .-vmptoms of Asiatic cholera, such as tice wat. t mnging, vomiting, cramps, suppression of urine, &e.; that he L'radnahy became eunapsed, and died about half-past ten and that before the death to"k place, he had had the assistance of Dr. Davies, who agreed with him that the syni) torn.- were those of Asiatic dlokra. The Clerk also adverted to the instructions given him I,i? ilit? lilt., t') the etlect that in case of au outbreak of reported to him, and uiitd a meeting of the Guardians took place, he and the Inspector of Nuisances for the District, were to act in carrying out the Privy Council Order un lerthe Pis ases Prevention Ads, in every respect, as the Ullardiall should do if tho report had directly been made to, tlieil), and mentioned that consequently he had on the day lie received the report, put Mr. Williams, the medical prac- titioner referred to, in charge of the town, for the medi- cal purposes ot the l rivy Council regulations, That Mr. illiams, with his two assistants, on Thursday and Friday, visited every part of the town, especially those parts inhabited by the poorer clashes, to enquire for ami to treat ca-:cs of cholera and diarrhoea, ii tic I i I, I be found. Frota the daily returns whieh Mr. Williams sup- plied, it appeared he had met with only two cases of Knghsh clwlern, andf-nr cases of diarrhcoa, all now doing well.

Tlie Clerk also proceeded to acquaint, the Guardians as to what Mr. David Thomas, the Inspector, had done in rtgardtothis case, and produced M»\ port. After satisfying himself by inquiry, of Mr. Wil- liams, the surgeon, that the case in question was that of Asiatic cholera, Ili-. vi,i?(,l thehouse with him, nnd in ac(- %?itil tli(? IMnd Artier <)t'th" Order, freely sprinkled chloride of lime ami carbolic acid on | the betiding and clothing used hy th? deceased in his illness, and also various parts of the house, and poured Home into the privy and <m the tsh pit, and according to the instructions of the medical atrendmt, destroyed a part of the clothing, which could not be speedily disin- fected. l)r. Simon, the Medical Officer of the Privy Council, it appears, lays particular stress upon the immediate dis- infection of all matters discharged from the stomach and bowels of cholera patients, and attributes the con- tagiousness of the disease chicHy to neglect in these matters. T. Richardson moved and Mr. Griffith Parry se- conded, that the proceedings of the Clerk aud the In- spector in this case be confirmed, which the IWtd agreed to, thanking tlieui for their vigour and prompt- iless in the matter. Rel/offs of Xtiixunrrs. — Inspector David Thomas sta- ted that he was able to report, progress, not only in the effort that was made to keep his district clean and free from nuisuic.-s, I tit that some permanent ituprovem' i.ts were in course of beill made in dwelling-houses, which were previously in a state of dilapidation aud not fit for human beings to live in. Some pig<tves which were too close to the houses had been removed, privies had been erected where there had been none before, and drains made in the place of iihhv open ditches. Inspector Thomas Hughes reported the removal of filthy dunghills in Clymiog and lJandwrog, and that Mr. Robert Hughes, the agent for the Treddafydd houses, IVuygroes, LhuHyilli, wax making preparations for erecting proper privies for theltl, that several petty nuisances had been removed, and the sanitary condition uf his district much improved. Looking forward at very possible events likely to occur in cast* of another «ntbreak of cholera, especially in an epidemic form, the Guardians gave instructions to the Clerk to inquire of the Poor-Law Hoard, how, as local a?thurity they are to act ill case of retinal ??t!? ??rt «f the fvn-nds of a ehoWa victim t> immediately bary ?t!tu dfad;and \Vll,? tli,?y Slk?-iii,l Ulill,l"y t?, infected articles under Regulation )tuf the Order of i'ri\'vCu(mcU.
