LLAN YS1UMDWY. ,<'< I A concert was held in the [National ocnooi on tile oru instant, in aid of the school funds, the success of which exceeded our most sanguine anticipations. The room was full to excess. It was conducted by a portion of the Church Choir of Portdinorwic, near Bangor, under the able leadership ot Messrs Jones and W illiams, who acquitted themselves in a maimer well worthy of the high reputation they enjoy. The good taste they exhi- bited in sinning the various pieces, showed the highly efficient training they had received.

The Rev. H. Kicharde our esteemed rector, occupied the chair with his usual ability. He opened the meeting with some very appo- site observations oil the object of their assembling that evening and the desirability of cultivating the glorious talent of music; since singing and listening to singing afforded them the most exquisite pleasure now, and its practice would remain their chief delight in the realms of bliss, when all other terrene arts aud sciences would be forgotten for ever. The rev. gentleman, moreover, expressed himself as being much pleased by meeting so many of his parishioners for the ready response they gave to the appeal made to them oil behalf of such an admirable institution; aud the gratifying appreciation they manife-ti d of the valuable services rendered by Mr Evans, their excellent teacher for very many years, iu the cause of education throughout Eifionydd. Ad- dresses were also delivered by the nev, Edward Hughes, curate bv Alltud Eition, and Robert Owen, liontfechan (bob o Eifion), thy latter gentlemen favoured the audi- ence with the luscious fruit of their fertilo muse, which were received, according to their deserts, with thunder- ing rounds of applause. After the usual vote of thanks to the chairman, choir, &c„ the numerous audience se- parated in a very happy and serene frame of nund, being well satisfied that they had not only patronized a bene- voleut project (which to the speculative mind is of great moment) the gratiticatien exceeded the value uf the in- vestment.—Com.
BANGOR LOCAL BOAHD OF HEALTH. j The ordinary monthly meeting of this board was held on Thursday last, February the Oth, when the following members were present-ltight HOII. Lord Penrhyn M essrs. Charles Bicknell, George Simpson, John Ro- berts, aad Morgan Richards. Mr W. Y. Hardie, Clerk, was also present. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. Gas Regulators.-The Clerk informed the board that he had tested the gas regulator recommended by Mr White, and supplied by Mr Sugg, and he found that it consumed nearly five cubic feet of gas per hour; and the illuminating power of the gas was equal to twenty- three sperm candles. Mr Sugg also had written to say that he would undertake to keep the burners in repair for 4d per lamp per annum. In reply to a question asked .by Mr Bicknell, the Clerk stated that 120 new burners were now required, and they would be supplied at 3s each, as stated by Mr bite. Lord Penrhyn had undertaken to pay for that number. The Clerk was then directed to order 120 new bur- ners immediately and for the rest, they could order additional ones when they were required. The offer of Mr Sugg to keep the burners in repair at 4d each lamp, was postponed for an indefinite time, and until further enquiries were made on the subject-Mr Simpson remarking that Mr White had stated the aver- age cost in London to be only Id per lamp. The Beaelt Road, Hirael.-The Clerk stated that in accordance with the directions of the Board at the last meeting, he had made an estimate of putting the present road into proper repair. He then htnded iu the paper to the Chairman. The estimate cost was—making footpath, 230 yards, at 2s 6d, £ 28 18s; ditto, filling up and gravel, 1;9 1 ls 8d drain extension, fifty-seven yards, at 3s 9,1 per yard, zElO 13s Id; total estimated cost, X48 If's 9d. Mr Morgan Richards observed that the road wae in a very bad state, and something ought to be done to it. Mr Bicknell was afraid their funds would not allow them to spare so large a sum at the present time. He thought it would not have cost more than from £25 to £30. The Clerk explained that it was the kerbing which added so greatly to the. cost. He had calculated the ex- pense for the best kerb stones, but they could have those of secondary quality, such as was used on the Carnar- von road, for much less. There was a kind of stone which would only cost 10d per ton, and a ton would do 20 yards of kerbing. The Chairman (Lord Penrhyn) observed that a road at the beach need not be made like a turnpike road—a rougher road would do. The great point would be to raise the footpath to such a height above the road that it would drain itself. The kerbing, if it were necessary to have it, should be fully as high as the side of tli-i footpath, and then it would act as a barrier against carts, &e. Mr Morgan Richards agreed with his lordship and as to the kerbing he believed that plenty of stones could be had from the beach, as there were plenty of them, and a little roughness would not matter. lie meaut loose stones which were upon the beach. Parties at Garth had calculated that the expense to do all which was required would not be more than from £ 10 to X12. After some further remarKS on the subject by Several of the members, a committee was appointed to visit the beach, in company with the Surveyor (lr Hardie), in order to decide upon the course it would be best to adopt. The following members were named—Messrs. Bicknell, Meohach Roberts, and Morgan Richards. The Drainage Pi/ns.—A letter was read from Messrs. John Thomas and Son, offering to supply the Board either with Messrs. Dawbarn and Co.'s pipes, or with those made by the Messrs. Doulton. They were williii4 to supply Messrs. Dawbaru's pipes at a charge of 7J per cent, only upon the prime cost. Mr Hardie then asked what they should do with the pipes which were in stock belonging to the late firm of Messrs. Thomas intl Co. who were now succeeded in their business by the Messrs. Cooke ? The Board had agreed to purchase their pipes of the Messrs. Thomas, at 12^ per cent, upon the cost price, inclusive of calriage and breakage; and the Messrs. Thomas and Co. had also taken the old pipes from the board. The minutes bearing upon this matter were then read—the date being July, 180(5. This led to a long conversation, during which the Chairman, and nearly all the other members, expressed their opinion that it would hardly be fair to advei tise for fresh tenders for a supply of pipes even when they could have them cheaper, because the late firm had got in a stock upon the understanding that they would be purchased by the board. The Chairman said, although probably it, was legal to throw the firm overboard, yet in his opinion it was not morally fair. Ultimately, and on the motion of Mr Simpson, it was agreed to give notice to the Messrs. Cooke (the succes- sors of Messrs. Thomas and Co.) that at the end of twelve months from this date, the board will invite tenders for a supply of pipes, under a fresh arrangement, and then they call tender amougst otlieis, if they e liould think proper to do so. lt'((ter Closet Cisteriis.-The Clerk produced, in the Board-room, a pattern slate water cistern, upon the double-valve principle, sent for inspection by Messrs. John Thomas and Son, and which will cust from 15s to 18. each. Mr Hardie, also, produced a new invention of his own for converting the present closet cisterns into double-valve ones, and which, if approved, he esti- mates will not cost more than from 7s to 83 each, but upon that point he could not speak positively. The Chairman said Mr Hardies' plan Wail very simple, and if it answered it would cause a great saving. The question was-would it work, and especially was it water tight ? Mr Hardie explained that it would be made perfectly water tight by a band made of india rubber. The principle of this cistern appeared to commend itself to the board and on the motion of Mr Bicknell, the Clerk was instructed to get one made, in order that it may be practically tested, as it is of importance the question should be settled as soon as possible. Xuisance in Wdl-street.—The Clerk reported that a notice had been served upon Mr Parry who occupies a house in Well-street to abate a nuisance which exists there but the nuisance had not been removed, nor had he received any reply to his letter. After a brief conversation, the Clerk was directed to summons the agent of the property. An Alleged Xaisancc at Jlirael.—A letter was read from Mr John Roberts, shipbuilder, Hirael, complaining that a smithy there was a great nuisance, and asking to have it abated. The Clerk explained that the smithy complained of was merely a wooden shed, and the man who occupies it was a weekly tenant to Mr Roberts, who let it to him. The Chairman—Why, then, does he not give him notice to quit ? The Clerk—He says he has done so, my lord, but the man won't go. Chairman—Why does he not compel him to leave ? Does he expect this Board to serve a notice of e jectment upon his own tenant ? Mr John Roberts remarked that the whole affair was one of envy and spite. The man came from Liverpool, and makes anchors, &c for the vessels, and certain parties have become envious of him, and probably they may have offered money to Mr Roberts to turn him out. 1 hat was the real fact of the case. Chairman-But this board have nothing whatever to do with it. It is a matter between the landlord and his tenant. The Highway Cai-taric.-Ilr Bicknell reported that Mr Simpson aud himself met the other day, as members of the committee appointed by the board to examine into the matter of the highway cartage for the town; but no one else atteuded, and as they did not form a quorum, nothing was done. He would suggest that as an election was so near at hand, the matter should be left over, to be dealt with by the new board. This suggestion was agreed to. The l,oi-tiiiyltttg Accotiiits.-Tlie Clerk produced the Workman's book, in which there was a charge of X21 12s Id for workmen's wages and road material, during the past fortnight. Mr Bicknell complained that the expense was high, and that Mr Hardie was expending more on the roads than the amount allotted to them would justify. Mr Hardie explained that now was the very time to put metalling upon the road, as if left until there was dry weather the stones would not set but would be loose about the roads. The expense was always greater in winter than in summer. The Chairman just glanced at similar charges in the months of ) klilo and July of last year, from which it appeared that the expenses were considerably under £ 20 in the fortnight. Charm auainut Mr Hardie 8 Mr Bicknell handed a letter to the Chairman which he said was anonymous, and in which there was a complaint made 8, it-st the workmen employed on the roads by Mr Hardie. Although there was no name to the letter, it echoed the complaints made by others, a8 the men idled away their time, and did not do t l 13 amount of work tliCV ought to do. The Chairman read the letter (which was badly com- no.ed and worse ?pe)t). which hinted that the men were ?ti?nes seen drinking in public houses instead of attenlling to their work. ?"Fhe'"Ch?? remarked tba they could not take much notice of an anonymous letter; but perhaps the Clerk could say whether the charge was true or not ? The Clerk replied he did not believe it was true; but Salisbury, who looked after the men, could tell them if he were called in. S'?ryt?m. into the ro.? answer to the Chairman ?te<t t?t the men did ..t idle m the way stated, but they worked as well as other men did. He did not know that they went into public houses to drink instead of working but about a fortnight ago two of the men stopped from their work altogether on a Saturday afternoon, but they were not paid for that time. lie stopped the pay but be did not report the matter to Mr Hardie, and he was sorry he did'nt. The Chairman remarked that a man placed as he was over other men should not only do his duty himself, but he should see that the men uuder him also did theirs; and he trusted he would keep a sharp look out in future after the men and see they did their duty, and if not to report them to Mr Hardie. Bangor Recreation Groiinds.-The Chairman informed the board that he had Bpoken to Captain Iremonger relative to the recreation grounds, and the agreement was in the hands of Mr Barber, and it would be ready in a few days. He should build the wall, as he had promised but he must tell them there would be certain restrictions inserted in the document; and he particu- larly desired that the footpaths should be marked on the plan. Mr Hardie said he would take care that the footpaths should be marked on the plan. He then stated that some boys were doing great mis- chief on the mountain, and they set fire to the gorse the other night, and burnt about a quarter of an acre of it. They also cut down and carried away some of the young gorse. He had sent some of the men to try to catch some of the boys but they missed them. Some people thought now that the mountain had been handed over to the town, and that they could do what they liked with it, and as it was not so the board could not take legal steps, as yet, against them. The Chairman said that the mountain would be handed over to the board as soon as Mr Barber had com- pleted the documents, and they were signed; but in any case people could not be allowed to do what they liked on the mountain. Some of the men could be put to catch some of the boys who did any mischief, and they should then be taken before the magistrates. If they had not any power to prosecute, he would do so in his private capacity. He would also recommend them not to be too tender in the first instance never to forgive a first offence (laughter) because, it might prevent them committing a second (laughter). He then asked the board what had been done in the matter of subscriptions ? Mr Bicknell replied that Mr Pritchard, Tanycoed, had undertaken to collect subscriptions to put the mountain in a proper state. Chairman—Well, I shall give £ 50; and make the wal besides. (Loud cheers.) I His Lordship having intimated that it was doubtful whether he should be able to attend their next meeting, as he was going to Loudon, Mr Bicknell called his attention to the coming election of three retiring Guardians, and his Lordship as their Chairman, was the returning officer. What should they do in that case The Clerk intimated that his Lordship had the power of deputing one of the members to act in his place, providing that he should be absent. His Lordship replied he should leave the matter in the hands of the hoard, who could appoint some one of themselves to act for him. ,Ift- J/¡/y's P/«Y:JÎng.- The Chairman expressed some surprise at there being 12s Gd already expended in re- pairing the digging which the other day hid only been completed by Mr Mealy, and which the surveyor (Mr Hardie) had stated to have been properly done, and had given a certificate to Mr Mealy. If the work had been well done, it seemed very strange that it should require repairitig alreitdy. Mr llardie explained that one of the flags was broken and loose, and he had to employ men to put a new fl-ig in. The men's wages amounted to 7. 61, and the fl,g cost os. The work was well doue when he saw it but he thought the men must have injured the flag when they were putting the others down. Mr Bicknell replied that he believed the cause was that there was no slate put under the water drop, so that the water got in and washed the soil away, and so loosened the flag. The Chairman thought it probable that such was the cause; but still he did not understand how it was tint Ir Hardio did not see tint the work was pr iperly done Mr Hardie replied it did appear to be properly done for days after he had given the certificate. e Mr Simpson and Mr John Roberts stated that th men employed were the best workmen iu the country as they were Mr Rogers's best masons. The Chairman said it was quite clear the work had not been properly done, otherwise the board would not have been called upon to place a new flag iu a month's time after it had been completed. Mr Mealy could now understand why it was that he had been called upon to spend so much money as lie had, and why the board had refused to grant a certificate. The Clerk said they were men employed by Mr Mealy who did the work. Mr Simpson—It is certain that Mr Mealy has been greatly imposed upou by the workmen in the matter of the flagging, and he had blamed the Board and their Clork of the workmen. The Chairman said he hoped the reporters would notice the matter, so that Mr Mealy may have a chance of seeing the cause of the expense he had been been formerly put to.
AMLWCH. I "ALARMIG ACCIDENT, AND FORTUNATE ESCAPE."—A correspondent in this town, under the above sensa- tional heading, has written a long paragraph, of which the following is the marrow :-On Wednesday last, two Guardians left Auilwch for Llanerehymedd, to attend the meeting of the Board, in a trap and not by railway. On their return homewards, the horse ran away, but nobody was hurt!
LLANGEFNI. CONCERT.—On Thursday night, the 30th ultimo, the Llangefni Christy Minstrels gave another of their popu- lar entertainments in the Town-hall, of this town, to a crowded audience; indeed, the hall was uncomfortably crowded. The ChrUtys have tried every means to pre- vent overcrowding by using private tickets, at a charge of two shillings each, and have gone from public rooms to private ones, but to no avail, as people will hear them. The entertainment throughout was brilliantly conduct- ed, and in every respect was one of their most success- ful ones. The band, which is very respectably formed, consists of the following young men of the town :— Messrs William Richards, Edward Edwards, R. Crewd- son, O. Williams, J. Hughes, O. Roberts, W. Griffiths, J. Crewdson, and D. Jones. The programme was divided into two parts, and during the performance of the second part the audience was kept constantly convulsed with laughter.-Coin.
HOLYHEAD. HONOrUINQ THE TRULY BRAVE. Last Saturday we bad an addeuda to the scenes of December iiit last, when the Lydia Williams, the liayiadure, and the Scotland became total wrecks even when we supposed them to be in safety. The dinner given to the lifeboat crew was the sequel, and now I have the pleasant duty of recording an addenda, which is not less deserving of public notice than was the good work that called for it. Wo have been told that the Humans and Greeks had their "civic crowns" for noble services to their country; but I am sure that the return of the greatest of the Koman generals to Kome is not to be compared with the return to the Admiralty Pier of the Princess of Waies Lifeboat with its living freight of fifty-four SOUIB saved from the yawning ocean on the first day of December, 1867. The services of those hardy and brave sailors is our envy-lit)t that a few ingots of gold has been the reward of their honorary and disinterested services, but that their fame has reached all parts of England drawing forth the approbation of noble men and noble societies. The National Lifeboat Institution grudges not the handsome donation of -1:55 to the crew. The Liverpool Underwriter's Association, by the kind offices of the craw's best. friend, Admiral Schomberg, throws a cheque of twenty-one guineas to the lap of the local society for the men, and X5 to the all-but octogenarian cox- swain, who (being a teetotaller" of the strictest sect of the Pharisees,) will have it that the sea dare not drown him in the element he so much admires. One of the passengers, Mr William Waterfield, conscious of the services of the crew in ianding him and his lisping nephew from the jaws of death, sends a letter worthy of a good and grateful heart, to Admiral Schomberg, enclosing X5 to the lifeboat crew. Sheffield after all is not so bad. Sheffielders are not all saw-grinders and secret deadly enemies of mankind and of noble deeds. A Mr Thomas Ellin having read in the papers an account of the noble services rendered by Coxswain Rowlands and his gallant crew" sends not the mean contribution of seventy-two penny stamps to augment the grand total of £ 86 6s Od in aid of the lifeboat crew, giving them on an average the not-to-be-despised reward of £ 5 Is 6d each, and the old coxswain an additional £5 note from the Liverpool Underwriter's Association Strange to relate, though Rowlands the coxswain had been for many yeara connected with the noble work of (i lifesaving, not a voice was raised, nor a pen dipped in ink to bring his services before the notices of any ef the societies that have been entrusted by the public to reward such services-uot a man in Holyhead, from the highest of us to the lowest ever troubled himself with it, and scarcely able to acknowledge it, we permitted a stranger to us and to him, to take the palm from us and show us how things could be done well and effi- ciently. Admiral Schomberg, a gentleman whose rank in the navy, his position in Holyhead, and goodness of heart, we acknowledge with pride, bestirred himself, and in December, 1866, old Rowlands received from Admiral Schomberg's hands, and through him from the National Lifeboat Institution, a silver medal and accom- panying a written testimonial. After the recent addi- tional services of Rowlands, the gallant Admiral was not slow to send the medal for a second class clasp to the noyal Lifeboat Institution, which was granted with the greatest pleasure. Admiral Schomberg knew what the value of the services rendered by Rowlands were, and he interested himself with the Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society, which he had the "honour and pri- vilege of being connected with for seven years," and the following speaks of the result. The presentation was made in the presence of the Honourable W 0 Stanley, M.P., Admiral Schomberg, Rev. T Briscoe, B.D., Incumbent of Holyhead, J Provis, Esq, Capt. Caval, R.N, Mr 0 L Jones, hon. sec. to the lifeboat; Hon. Mrs Stanley, Mrs Schomberg, and Misses Schomberg, Messre 0 Pritchard, H Thomas, 0 Griffith, the crews of the Board of Trade, &c. The chair was taken by the Rev. T Briicoe, B.D., Chairman of the Lifeboat Committee. In presenting the medal the Hon. W 0 Stanley, said— William Rowlands, Admiral Schomberg has asked me to present to you this vpry beautiful medal from the Liverpool Shipwreck and IJ umane Society, together with this statement accompanying it. Admiral Schom- berg would be the proper person to do this, for you really owe it to him. Now I have known you for a number of years, and as manning the lifeboat with great ability and success. You are a man in extreme age, I think 76, and you bear an excellent character for iteadiness and sobriety. Hitherto you have been enabled to do your duty with seamanhke skill, great success, and good luck. I do not know how many lives you, in connexion with others, have been able to save, but I am sure they are a great number. [Rowlands— Upwards of 250.] You received last year a medal from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in London, and you have since had it raised to the second class with a new clasp accordingly. That denotes that on two occa- sions so lately you have been worthy of the honour. There is no finer institution in England than the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. It is supported by vo- luntary means. The men, also, employed by the .1 Institution are volunteers. True, it is a dangerous service, but, thauk God, we have not had but one casuality with our lifeboat. On the last occasion, I was not at Holyhead, but I was told that you saved thirty- three lives from the Lydia Williams, and amongst the number a mother find child who had taken refuge in the rigging. You manfully did your duty and rescued them all. Had it not been for the Princess of Wales lifeboat, this could not have been done. In old times there were rewards for those that performed noble deeds in naval and military service, aud they received a civic crown. To my mind, the services performed by men like you that man a lifeboat, are deserving the highest honour, for you do it to save your fellow men, and I have very great pleasure in the name of the Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society in presenting you with this silver medal. It is very beautiful in its execution and its intrinsic value I cannot estimate. Here the Honourable gentleman handed the medal to the noble veteran. The medallion was a highly ai-tistic piece by W. Wyon, K.A., which had on one side the figure of a woman struggling in the sea with her baby in her arm! and a lifeboat coming to the rescue, with the words "God save us we pei ili." On the reverse, "Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society, 1830" was engraved, with the arms of Liverpool in the centre surrounded by wreaths. On the rim were the following words neatly cut, William Rowlands, Coxswain, Holyhead Lifeboat, aged 76, for the ability and intre- pidity he displayed in saving crews of Lydia Williams and Bayiadere, 2 Dec., 1867." Both eides were covered by gla-ss like that of a watch. Hon. Mr Stanley continued. It is accompanied by the following statement,— "This testimonial, together with the fir^t-class silver medal, is presented by the Liverp '01 Shipwreck and Humane Society to Mr William Rowlands, aged 76, Coxswain of the Holyhead Lifeboat, who by his heroic actions has been the means of having saved numerous lives both in the rouciit storm* and on the previous occasions in the neighbourhood of Holyhead. (Signed) "JOHN SUTTON, Chairman. "Tiioi!. CUURT, Secretary. Liverpool, 28th Dec., 1807.11 The execution of the statement is of the most elabor- ate and clever style, and I am glad to learn that the fortunate recipient is about to exhibit it as well as the medallion in some shop window that all may have a sight of it. The hon. gentleman continued—One word more to those that man the lifeboat with W. Rowlands. I under- stand that when either a flag is raised, or that Admiral Schomberg's hand is held up, the crew is always ready at the call of duty. This speaks much for the whole crew. Well, William, I wish you long life, and may your health be long spared, and I trust when your earthly course is run you will be received to a heavenly rest. ( Cheers.) Admiral Schnmberg -I beg to move thanks to the Hon. Mr Stanley fox the part he has taken in this highly interesting ceremony this day and in doing so, 1 maybe briefly perlllitted to ramal k that whe" I filled the otilce of Government Emigration olficer in Liver- pool from 1052 to 1859, I had the honour and privilege of being a member of th" Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society during that period, and I cm fcpeak to its excellent deeds in rewarding merit and bravery. The nature and operation of this institution, is as its name implies, purely local; but it has, in the presut instance, departed from its rule, and extended its beuefit to Holyhead. I trust that William Rowlands may be spared many years to wear the inedal, and when his life is ended, his sons Illay keep it in their possession as a memento of their father's good deeds, aUi1 fùrn1 a worthy inceutive for them and others to walk in his paths. The proposal was seconded by Mr Provis, and carried. Mr William Rowlands, the Coxswain, responded— He wished to live a few years more to save other lives if that be necessary. He said that when he had expressed that wish at the late dinuer given to the lifeboat crew, the Rev. f r Briscoe had checked him, and said he would not have any further occasion to save lives. He wished so to, but if M r Briscoe was wrong, he (Rowlands) would not be laggard when the lifeboat was needed. He was conscious of the sympathy Admiral Schomberg possessed for the lifeboat, and that the gallant gentle- man had given aruple proofs of it both at the launching of the lifeboat as well as in the kind services he had rendered in behalf of the crew subsequently, and ho and the crew were immensely indebted to Admiral Schomberg. Rowlands also paid a high compliment to the liev. T Hriseoe, BD., Incumbent of Holyhead and Chairman of the Lifeboat Committee. Hon. W 0 Stanley, M.P.—I have been told that some displeasure has been expressed relative to t he late dinner given to the lifeboat crew, and that some of the subscribers Lad taken otiimco in not being invited. As the treasurer of the committee, I wish it to go forth that I am thoroughly convinced that those gentlemen I 11 1 ?, I- 1 ? ? I wno movea in tne matter nau not uie sugiuesc wisn r.o give any offence. Petty feelings such as those should hot be permitted to interfere with so noble an institu- tion, and the hon. gentleman hoped that all would leud their support as usual. (Applause.) The public has cause to congratulate the success of the local institution, though, I fear, the I)tit)lic" iiiiist acknowledge that it is attributed to the great interest taken by the few gentiorneii tUat attend the committee. Let a day soon dawn w hen more general interest is taken in the institution, as well as in the noble results of the lifeboat crew. THE Lirs P)OAT.-Adiniral Schomberg writes to pub- licly acknowledge the receipt of a very generous donation of ten guineas, from Mr Arthur Coles, sent to him to; the fund of the Holyhead Branch of the Royal National Life-boat Institution, and also to express his grateful acknowledgement for the same.
LLANERCHYMEDI). ANGLESEY BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The ordinary fortnightly meeting of this Board was held on Wednesday last, at the Bull's JIead Inn, Llan. erchymedd. Present:—Major General Hughes, Bryn- du, in the chair; E. Richards. Esq., and Rev. James Morris, vice-chairmen Rev. Chancellor Williams, ex- officio; Rev. J. Richards, Amlwch; R. Lewis, ditto E, Jones, ditto; Rev. Hugh Owen, Llanerchymedd; Richard Williams, Llangwyllog; William Chambers, Coedana; Richard Jones, Llanfechell; Wm.

The miuutes of the previous meeting were read by the Clerk and confirmed. The ]Vork-house Plans.-Tlie Clerk said that he had sent to the different architects, as ordered at the last meeting of the board, to inquire if they were able to so reduce their plana as to make it practicable for them to be carried out, alld obtain the approval of the Poor Law Board. A reply had been received from Messrs Ken- nedy, stating that they did not intend to send in their tenders again. Mr Thomas, Menai Bridge, in his reply, itated that he had consulted two builders, both of whom had given estimates for the Holyhead Workhouse, and one of whom said that the works could be done, accord- ing to Mr Thomas's plans, for froui XI,800 to X2,100 and the other said that the works could be completed for from £ 1,100 to £ 2,000. Mr Thomas Davies, Llan- erchymedd, had also sent an answer to the clerk's circu- lar, in which he begged to say confidently that the building could be erected satisfactorily for XI,800, the sum fixed by the board. The Clerk agllin read the letter from Mr Guudry which had been read at the last meet- ing of the board, atating that he could make connidera- ble alterations in his plans, which he believed the Poor Law Board would allow. Mr Gundry had written to him subsequently, wishing to be informed of the deci- sion of the board. Mr Cundry had also sent a third letter, enclosing a communication from Mr Griffith, Brynsiencyn, to the effect that he would be willing to carry out the works. The Clerk then read a letter which he had sent to the l'"or Law Board, as ordered at the last meeting, explaining the course which the guardians had hitherto taken in regard to the workhouse, and stating that they had resolved to write again to the architects to enquire if any reductions could be made in their plans so as to meet with the approval of the Poor Law Board. The Rev. Hugh Owen said that the letter from Mr Gundry admitted that he could not get the works done for £ 1,800. The Clerk said that the Guardiani would have new to decide what course they would again take in refer- ence to the workhouse. The gallant Chairman said that it appeared to him from the letters read that Mr Thomas was more likely to come to their terms than any of the other gentlemen. The Clerk said that Mr Thomas wanted to know if their plans were identical with those of Holyhead. Several guardians said that they were so. Mr Chambers t-aid that they could never get the building done for £ 1,800. They would have to expend £ 300 or £ 100 in furniture and other things. It would not be very safe for them to follow the advice of the Poor Law Board in everything. He then read an ex- tract from a Liverpool paper, purporting to give an ac- couut of a case, in which the Poor Law Auditor declar- ed certain transactions authorised by the Poor Law Board null and void. Rev. James Morris wished the Guardians to finish with Mr Gundry, before entering into the question at large. The Chairman said that Mr Gundry appeared to decide the matter for himself, in the letter read by the Clerk. The Clerk said that Mr Gundry claimed compensa- tion for the altering of the plans, loss of time, and other things. Mr E. Richards said Mr Gundry could not claim such compensation, as his ylans had only been accepted con- ditionally. The Clerk corroborated Mr Richards' statement, that Mr Gundry's pUns were only accepted condition- ally, and Mr Doyle was with them at the time. The Chairman remarked that Mr Guudry had put himself out of court completely. Mr R. Lewis said the best plan would be to lay the facts before the Poor Law Board, and let them de- cide the matter. Iiev. J. Richards demurred to that ceurse altogether. The Clerk then read the minutes of a meeting at which Mr Gundry was present, and his plaus were dis- cussed. The minutes of that meeting bore out what had already been stated, that Mr Gundry's plans were accepted conditionally one condition being that the plans were such as could be cotnl)lete(ifor XI,SUO. The minutes of a subsequent meeting were also read, at which Mr Gundry, on the recommendation of the Poor Law Board, was empowered to add the fittings to his plans. Mr Gundry was wrong when he averted that the fittings were added by the guardians; that was done by the Poor Law Board. After a great deal of conversation, It was proposed by the Rev. Hugh Owen, seconded by the Rev. James Morris, and carried iiiiaiiiiiioii,ly,- That the Clerk be instructed to inform Mr Gundry that the board would adhere to its resolution, rejecting all the tenders because they exceeded the sum of £ 1,800. Rev. Hugh Owen said that the next party on the list was Mr Kennedy. The Clerk said that Mr Kennedy declined to sen-t in his plans, and Mr Thomas, of Menai Bridge, therefore, would next come uud< r their consideration. Mr Thomas was then admitted into the room, and in answer to the Clerk, he stated that the plans he now submitted were not the sume Tt th\\l!e submitted to the Holyhead Guardians. He had taken care that the re- commendations of the Poor Law Board were attended to, and he was almost certain that the plans would be approved of by the Poor Law B,,ard without any very important alterations. The plaus were made to iuclude 75 persons. u Kev. James Morris asked 31 r J llamas it he believed that he could get his plans completed to the satiffac- tion of the Poor Law Hoard for the sum of £ 1,800 ? Mr Thomas answered in the affirmative. In repiy to questions, Mr Thomas said he would, of course make a few alterations in the plans before sending them to the Poor Law Beard, because he anticipated the objec- tions that would be put forward by the Poor Law Board. Mr Thomas then produced the amended plans, and explained to the Guardians the alterations he pro posed again to make, to which the guardians expressed no objection. The Clerk, after referring to the minutes, remarked that the house was required for 70 persons. Mr Thomas said that he w.u also under the impression that it was 70, until he came that day to Llanerchy- medd, when he was told by one of the Guardians that it was 75. That, however, could be easily altered. Rev. James Morris asked Mr Thomas, whether, if the plana were accepted, could he undertake to get them carried out under X2,000 ? Air Thomas said that he could, provided the plans were not altered, as one builder had already told him that he would do the works for £ 1,990. Mr Eiias Jones said that that would be much better than the old proposals. ^ev Hugh Owen asked Mr Thomas if he would take his uh. the same terms as Mr Gundry. Mr I'homas said that he would be quite content with the terms offered to Mr Gundry. Fixtures would be included in the plans, but not the fittings. T .e Clerk said that the Guardians did not mean to have the fittings included. The Hev. Hugh Owen ultimately proposed that, Mr Kennedy having withdrawn his plans, Mr Thomas's plans be accepted, on the condition that a competeut and substantial cuntractor, approved by the Guardians, be found to complete the workhouse for XI,800, and that he be not appointed architect until all the conditions be fulfilled. The motion was seconded by Mr Elias Jones, and agreell to rwn. COli. The Clerk said that he would transmit the resolution to the Poor Law Board. Mr Thomas said that he would endeavour to send the plans up by the end of next week. The Conveyance. —The Clerk produced the form of conveyance of the piece of land for the werkhouse, which would have to be sent up to London in order to have the seal of the Poor Law Board affixed to it. County Rate.-The Clerk said that there was a new county rate to be paid, and it was more than double what it was the last quarter. The last one was only X230, while this was X576. Rev. Chancellor Williams asked if there was a rate at all for the last quarter ? The Clerk said that there was no police rate, but there was a county rate. The police rate was Id a pound this quarter, while there was none at all to pay the last quarter, and that occasioned the great difference. Fiiia)tcial.-Paid in outrelief during the past fort- night :— W. Edmunds £ 63 4 10 John Evans 16:5 14 6 John Roberts 101 9 0 iCS30 8 4 Paid to non-settled poor ditto;- Wm.

MOLD. LOCAL BOARD.—The monthly meeting of this board was held on Thursday last. The business was of a rou- tine character. Notices for nominating new members to fiU the vacancies by the retirement by rotation of Messrs Corbett, Pryor, E. Davies, W. Turner, and E. Jones, were issued, the electiou to take place on the 25tll instant. NATIONAL SCHOOL.—On Thursday the children of this school were treated with cake and small presents of books, clothing and other articles were distributed among the boys and girls who had been most regular in their attendance. The treat was given by the worthy vicar, the Rev. J. Davies, and Mrs Davies. The schools are well attended, the Bumber of boys being 103, girls 120, and iufanta 140, and they are in a most efficient state. In the department, which is under the able management of Miss Davies, there were only four failures in all the questions put by the Inspector, the Rev. E. T. Watts, last week. A similar result followed the examination in the boys' school. LECTURE ON THE HOLY LAND.—On Tuesday evening the Rev. W. Warlow Harry, minister of the Free Church in this town, delivered a lecture on the above subject, in the Assembly-room, to a large audience. The lecture was illustrated by a panorama of views in the Holy Land. There was also a bazaar of fancy articles, on a small scale, held for two or three hours before the lecture commenced. The proceeds of the whole were for the funds of the Free Church. VESTRY MEETING.—A vestry was called on Thursday morning, for the purpose of considering an application made by Mr John Davies, assistant-overseer, for an in. crease of salary. The Rev. J. Davies having read the notice convening the vestry, there seeiiie i t,, V- a unani- mous opinion among the r;tt(,p;tyer,4 th it the ap- plicant was underpiid, especially when the extra duties were imposed upon him inconsequence of the passing of the late Act of Parliament. Mr John Jones (Beehive) moved that an addition of £ 2o be nHde to the assistant* overseer's salary. That was seconded by Mr W. Jones, ironmonger. Mr Joel Williams proposed an addition of X50. This was seconded by Mr Catherall, one of the overseers. The original motion wa-s cari-ie,l by a majo- rity often. A vote of thanb to the ltev r Davies for presiding, having been passed, the meeting ter- minated. PETTY SESSIONS.—The fortnightly sessions were held in the Connty Hall, on Friday, the 31st ult., before E. Pemberton, i*>q., and Captain Phillip. Assault.E(Iward Edwar(lq, charged John Al'illiams, with an assault at the Waen. between ten and eleven o'clock on the night of the 22nd ult., by throwing two glasses of ale upon him. Complainant admitted he called defendant a scamp and a bully.' Their wor- ships c insidered thecase fully proved aud the defendant was ordered to pay the coats. Miriam Roberts charged Catherine Jones with an assault on the 11th January, when defendant pulled her down and struck her violently. Dofendant was fined 2s 6d and costs. Loc(tl Boa,d Rates.—Joseph Eaton and Thos. Savage were charged with non-payment of Local Board rates. Defendants objected to the payment of rates, as neither road nor gas-light was prepared for the convenience of the tenants. Mr C. Parry, Clerk of the Local Board, said the board had no power to construct a road, and so 80"n as con- venient no doubt gasdight would be provided for all the new houses at Glauyrafon. Their worships issued an order for payment. Drunk and Disorderly— John Hopewood was fined 6< and costs for being drunk and disorderly at Buckley, on the 11th of January. John Dunn was li.n"d the same amount for a similar offence at Land End, Buckley, on the 16th ult. De- fendant admitted he was drunk, but the police officer put iiitd (ILiiet enough. P.C. Robt. Ellis, charged Edward Edwards with drtinkennes-gauci indecent conduct in the streets of Mold, on Sunday, the 19th of January. He was an old offender, and was fiued 40s and costs in default of pay- ment he was sent to prison for twenty-one days. Malicious Injury— Isaac Jones was summoned by Mr G. E. Roper, for injury to a lock which he had put on agate of a field at Maesydre. Defendant it appeared rented s irne land of Mr Hatesou at the above place, and complainant said that when he became tenant of the house and ltu(I after Mr Bateson, he agreed that Jones should remain tenant until the 3dth November. When Jones carried the hay from those fields in June, he stacked it a distance otf, stating as his reason to Mr Roper's servant that he was not sure whether he would get the fields after November, this showing he must, according to complainant's statement, have understood the arrangement of giving up the field in November. He however put his cows in aftrr that, an l one night after they had been taken home, complainant locked the gate defendant next morning broke the lock, and he was now summoned for the injury done t the lock. Defendant maintained he was a yeatly tenant and would not give up possession without six mouth's notice. Mr Roper said the question of tenancy would be settled in another court, and defendant expressed his willing- ness to meet him in the county court, the case to be tried before an impartial jury. The bench adjourned the present case to wait the result of the action in the county court. A Curious f:M>n}>tioti CI(t;,n.-George Connah of l'entre thte, havillg summoned George Taylor, for non- payment of toll, the letter contended he was exempt from paying toll, because he did not travel lot) yards on the turnpike road. It appeared that he went over 176 yards, but there was a county bridge included in the distance, which defendant said was kept in repairs by the c junty, as well as 100 yards »»u each side. The point not having been before raised here, the bench thwught the case should be first proved for investigation. De- fendant wished it setled, and the order to pay was made with costs.
POET DIN JRWIC. On Friday, the 31,t ultimo, the annual concert, in aid of the school was given at the Llanf.tirisgaer National Schoolroom, by the Portdinorwic Church Choir, under the leadership of Mr W, Williams, accompanied by Mr H. Williams on the pianoforte, and assisted by the Mi.-ses Armstrong Williams, Mr R. Roberts, assist- ant-organist of Bangor Cathedral, the master of the school, on the violin, and Miss M. A. Owen. The con- cert was under the patronage of It. G. Duff, Esq., Vaenol, who kindly contributed on the occasion the sum of five pounds in addition to his usual subscription to the school.

B. C." by Miss Owen and Air W. William?", as also the Portdinorwic Schottisehe," by Messrs H. Williams and Evans, merited especiad commendation. Between the parts, the Rev. R. \V.

Before concluding with singing the National Anthem, a vote of thanks Kas proposed by the iiev. it. W. Grif- fith to it. G.

roimiADOc, PETTY SESSIONS, Friday, the 31st ult., before David Williams, E. W. 1athew, and John Jones, Esquires. Iktxtardy.—Mary Roberts v. Evan Humphreys. Upon the application of complainant, the case was ad- journed for a fortnight. Larceny,—Reg. on the prosecution of Ann Jane Lloyd v. Gwen Griffith. Humphrey Lloyd, on his oath, saith-I reside at Pen- morfa. Ann Jane Lloyd is my daughter. On the 23rd of January inst. my said daughter lost a waterproof cloak. On Monday last, the 27th inst., in consequence of information I had received, I went to the house of the prisoner's mother. I saw the prisoner and told her that my daughter had lost a mantle on the 23rd, and that I had heard she, prisoner, had found one. She said she had found one on the road, and at once fetched it and offered it to me. I said I would prefer not taking it, and left it. The hedge on which the cloak had been spread to dry is close to the road, and 'it might easily have happened that it was blown into the road. Ann Jane Lloyd, sworn, said—On the 23rd instant I spread the cloak, now produced, ou the hedge to dry. The hedge divided the garden from the field, and the cloak was about three or four yards from the high road. It was blowing rather on that day. I placed it on the hedge about nine o'clock in the morning, and did not go to look for it till after dark. I gave thirty-one shillings and sixpence for the cloak.-Case dismissed.
THE CAMBRTAN RAILWAY ACCIDFNT.-On Thursday the adjourned inquiry into the deaths of Samuel Daniels and John Davies, the driver and stoker of the mail train which was precipitated into the Severn by the accident at a bridge at Caersws on Saturday morning, was held at the Public Rooms, Newtown, before Dr Slyman, the district coroner.

THE LLANDUDNO AMATEUR )IINSTItELS.-We are glad to find that these talented Minstrels are about to give a series of concerts in the Penrhyn Hall, Bangor, commencing on Mouilay evening next. They have lately been performing in Llandudno with very great Buccess, and a few concerts will do something towards relieving the heavy and dull monotony of winter life in Bangor. DEATH OF AN OLD BASOOIUAN.- On Monday last, died, in his niutieth year, Mr Pritchard, mason, High- street, of this city, and who had lived iu Bangor, for Beveuty-seveu years, never residing anywhere else. The deceased had worked the whole of his long life for the family of t'eurhyn C.,stle. He was employed for many years under the first, Lord Penrhyn, and afterwards under George Hay Dawkins Pennant, Esq., and also for the present Lord Penrhyn until incapacitated by age from working al all. He was employed at the building of the present magnificent castle during the whole time of its being erec:e i; and he it was who did all the facing and principal work of the fine Keep Tower- of which the deceased was naturally very proud. He was a steady, quiet, and respectable man, and greatly esteemed in his sphere of life. lie was uncle of Mr W. Pritchard, of Tanycoe.l, Bangor. We are glad to find, from our advertising columns, that the foundation stone of the new National School buildings is to be laid on Thursday next, and that Lady Penrhyn, with her usual kind interest in whatever pro- motes the welfare of liangor, has promised to take part in the ceremony. The buildings when finished are to accommodate 45ft children, and will ba altogether woithy of our Cathedral city. The 13th will doubtless be a day of great joy to many in Bangor, and we expect to see a great assi iabla^e. It is to be heartily hoped that the collection, which is to be made, will somewhat lessen the great pecuniary deficiency for which Mr Pryce is now solety responsible. We are pleased to learn that Miss Annie B. Bloom, pupil teacher at the National Bchool, Bangor, passed in the first-class, and won the Queen's scholarship at ths recent examination at the Warrington College, Lan- cashire. A YEUV SAD AND PITIFUL CASE.—Our advertising columns of this day bring before our readers a case of »uch unmitigated hardship and distress, that we gladly contribute towards enlisting public sympathy on its behalf. The facts are as follows —The late Mr John Bro;lie, silk manufacturer of Manchester, having a residence at and who died in the month of December last, was considered by general reputation a person of considerable wealth, and during his life time brought up his unity in circumstances of ease and com- fort and they were "led to believe, that upon his death they would be (imply provided for. Since his death it has transpired that Mr lirodie, in a most unaccountable manner, ani only a few months aitcr his second mat- riage, executed a will, the same having been prepared about four vears previously, whereby he left the whole of his property, real and personal, to Trustees (his son- in-law being one of them) for the benefit of his daughter by a former wife, aId to her children, and did not make any provision whatsoever for his second wife or her offspring In addition to the mortification of being thus left neglected and unprovi le I for, the trustee and t'xe. cutor, acting under this iniquitous will, have informed Mrs lirodie that her husband died insolvent (how far this is true we know not) and has resolved not only to de- prive her of not only all she has, but refuses to render her anv assist mce. Mrs lirodie has thus had to realize in all its bitterness the sad fact of being left with two children, with the expectation of another, utterly help- less, an 1 at the mercy of the world. To such tn ex- tremity h is she been thus suddenly reduced, that she knows not how » >011 she may be actually turned into the street. In her great perplexity, her only resort lies in an appeal to the liberality of this christian community. It is to be hoped that a sufficient sum may be realized, to put lur in u p >siujn to earn her livelihood, and to be able to maintain her fatherless children. We earnestly trust that this appe il on their behalf will not be in vain. The names heading the su bscription list is a sufficient guarantee of good f lith, as well as of the highly deser- ving nature of the case. A •ingular case has been before the Court of Queen > Bench, which, if eitlter of the parties had possessed a little camnion sense or decency, would never have been obtruded On the II(ItiCe of tilo JILIblic. The plaintiff was the divorced wite of the Count D Alteyrac, a personage of high \iÜ<> ih rr<lnC", ami the defendut the Lord Willoughbv D'liresbv. The parties became acquainted in Paris in IS17, alifi in 184M they lived together in London, and continued to do 80 until 1864, when a dis- agreement took place which ultimately led to their seliar- atiou. The defendant, upon this, sold all tlie furniture, Ac., at Caen-lodge, Twickenham, for fS,000, which pro- perty the plaintitf claimed as hers, for which this action WM brought. The Counteis stated that in 1851, when they took Caen-lodge, she expended £ 1,000 of her own money in furnishing it, and the furniture and plate she had in Paria were also brought there. The Lord Chief Justice said that the facts alleged were not disputed, the justice of the case would be best met by a reference as 11 -1.- lH- ,¡.1- to what provision the noble lorti unouiu m«ae ior iuc Countesa and his daughter by her; and the hearing was adjoariied to see whether tome such arrangement could not be made. On the case being resumed on Monday, February 3rd, Mr Hawkins said that Lord Willoughby D'Eresby had never been unwilling to make to Madame D'Alterac such an allowance as would be fcuffieient to provide her f-r the rewaiuder uf her life with those com- fortt to which she had been accustomed. There bad, however, been a wide ditVerence in opinion between them, an to the amount at which this allowance should be fixed. Ih had carefully abstained throughout his cross-examina- tiun from any questions disrespectful to the plaintiff, and as it was the defendant's desire to do what was fair for he) benetit, lie was happy to say that the case was now terminated by an arrangement to refer all the mat. ters in dispute between the parties to some gentleman of honour, who should be named by the Lord Chief Justice. This gentleman was to be at liberty to fix not only the terms upjn which the claims iu this action were to be satisfied, but also the terms upon which the separ- ation of the parties was to continue, and the allowance which ought to be made by the defendant. The Lord Chief Justice considered this a inont, satiafactory termi- nation of the case, although he could not but regret that it had not been arrived at earlier. The jury were ao- cordingly discharged.
