BRYNGWRAN AND LLANFAELOG. On Monday and Tuesday, the 7th and 8th instant, the annual distribution of the clothing clubs for the joint benefit of the adult poor of the parishes of LIHII- bculan, Ceirchiog, Llechylched, and Llanfaelog, took place at Bryugwran and Llanfaelog, when a large num- ber of weekly depositors, varying from one penny to three pence, received a bonus of 48 4d on their respec- tive payments. Mr8 and the Misiiefi Williams, the Rec- tory, personally superintended the selection and pur- chase of the various articles of warm and useful clothing, and the poor recipients were evidently very grateful for the substantial and seasonable relief. There was also a fjinjilar distiibutiuii iof clothing among the poorer chil- dren, regulaily attending tue Church Suuday School at Bryugwran, each member receiving a bonus of 3s on his or her weekly payment of one penny. These excel- lent charities are maintained through the liberal contri- butions of the following owners of property in the dis- trict, viz., The Lady Sarah Hay Williams, Dowager Lady Goring, O. Fuller Meyrick, lisq., R. Roberts, Esq., The Firs, Chester, and the Hector of the parishes.
DOLGELLEY. PETTY SESSIONS, Tuesday, December Mth, before L. Williams, Eq., and Col. Bunbury, C.U. Lhunk and Disorderly.- Edwird innkeel)f.-r, Red Lion, Dolgelley, was charged by Inspector Jones, with being drunk and disorderly in Eldon-square, on Monday last between five and six o'clock in the eveniug. He was so abusive to every one he met that he was obliged to have him locked up. Being the first offence, defendant was fined 6s and costs, or seven days' imprisonment. BOAUU OF GUABMANS, Thursday, December 10th- Present-L, Williams, Esq., (presiding), and Col Bun- bury, C.B., ex-officio; Messrs Wm.

Jones, D. Jones and H. Roberts, Dolgelley. Collector of Llanddwyweis-graig.—k letter was re- ceived from the Poor Law Board respecting the appoint- meut of Mr Hobert Jones, to the office of collector of Poor Rates iu this parish, observing that Mr Jones had not yet attained the age of 21 years.andpointingout that no person who is a minor can legally hold any office of pecuniary trust under the Poor Law Board, as the office of collector of rates is one of that nature. They were of opinion that in the present instance the guardians had not made a valid appointment. Under these cir. cumstances the Poor Law Board must request the guardians to proceed, after due notice, to a fresh elec- tion. N utice of a motion,to that effect was therefore given. Collector of LtancUtyd.—A letter was also received from the Poor Law Board enquiring whether the guar- dians had elected a collector of Poor Rates for this parish in the room of Elias Williams, who had resigned. It appeared that there was no necessity at present for appointing a collector, as the overseer of the parish had siguilied his readiness to collect the rates until the end of the year. Vagrancy.-An unusually long letter was also received from the Poor Law Board respecting the increase of vag- rancy in the various unions, and suggesting various pro- posals for the better regulation of vagrancy in the Workhouses. It appeared that almost all the suggestions offered were already in existence in this union. Register of Religious Creed—A. circular was also re- ceived from the Poor Law Board in which it was pointed out that on and after the 1st day of January next, a Register of the Religious Creed of every inmate of every Workhouse should he kept by the master or matron according to a particular form proscribed in the said Order.

I PORTMADOC. I WRECK OF A PORTMADOC VESSEL-EXCITING SCENE' -The Earl, of Portmadoc, bound to Waterford, with a cargo of wheat, was caught in the storm of Friday night, and driven in towards the ironbound coast of Baunow, in the southern part of Ireland. In order to save the vessel from being driven on the rocks, the captain cast both anchors, and the vessel rode safely until low-water on Saturday, when she struck the ground with such violence that the crew apprehended she would break up. The sea was fearfully wild at the time, but rather than remain in the vessel the crew trusted their lives to]a boat, and put off for the shore. The chances of safety in such a small boat were very slender, but still the men pulled at their oars with the vigour of those upon a forlorn hope. Crowds of people assembled on the beach and anxiously watched the progress of the boat, but they could render no assistance to those on board, for the boat was fully a mile from the land. The boat sank from sight as each succeeding wave passed from beneath her, but still she rode on gallantly till she had accomplished nearly half the distance to the shore, when a tremendous wave broke upon her, and buried her under a mountain of water. The spectators were struck with awe. When the boat rose again to the sur- face, one sailor only was seea to cling to her. She had been capsized, but this man clung to her keel. His hopes of safety in such a situation were few indeed, for the boat was tossed about like a reed, and the waves broke upon her every moment. It was evident that no human strength could enable the man to retain his hold whilst the waves beat so violently; and ultimately he, too, was washed away. But another object then attracted all eyes. At first it was discerned as a mere atom rising with each waves, but soon it was seen that a man, sup- ported upon an oar, was nearing the land. A thrill of joy passed through the crowd, for it would be a deed to be proud of to save even one life out of the crew. The chief officer of the Coastguards at Barolough, who was on the beach during the day, fastened a rope round his body, in order that he might wade out to the wretched man who was making a last struggle for life. It was evident that the sailor retained consciousness, for he guided the oar to which he clung towards the shore, though it was surprising that be was not suffocated from the manner in which the waves broke upon him and enveloped him in surf. As .he approached nearer the shore he waved his hand as a signal for help, and it was evident he was well nigh exhausted. A young man named Thos. Kelly, who watched the sailor all along with intense anxiety, and who could not brook longer delay to help him. snatched the end of the line that was fastened to the officer of Coastguards, and boldly plunged iuto the water. Soon he caught the poor sailor, and brought him almost lifeless ashore. The sailor, who is quite young, was boy on board the vessel. It is a remarkable fact, that shortly after the crew abandoned the vessel the wiad veered noithward, a point which would have enabled the vessel to be taken off; but when the crew endeavoured to make the land in the boat, the wind, which would have saved them half an hour pre- viously, was now directly against them.
MEETING OF PARLIAMENT. ■ —— HOUSE OF LORDS—THURSDAY. I The first session of the eighth Parliament during tne reign of her present Majesty was formally opened yes- terday by Royal Commission. The attendance of peers was very limited. There were only a few ladies present, either in the body of the house or in the galleries, and the few strangers present showed how little iuterest was felt in the proceedings. The Royal Commissioners were the new Lord Chan- cellor, the Duke of Argyle, Earl of ICiuiberley, Earl de Grey and Ripon, and Lord Sydney. The Lord Chancellor having directed the Usher of the Black Rod to request the attendauce of the House of Commons, the Chief Clerk, atteuded by a considerable number of the members of the Lower House, appeared at the bar. The Lord Chancellor, who did not wear his robes as a peer, not having taken his seat, then said -.Ily Lords and gentlemeD,-We have it in command from her Majesty to inform you that as soon as the members of both houses are sworn iu, the causes of her Majesty's summoning Parliament will be declared, and it is neces- sary that you, gentlemen of the House of Commons, should repair to the place where you are t, sit, and there proceed to the choice of some proper person to be your Speaker, and that you present such person whom you may so choose lo-morrow at 2 o'clock for her Majes- ty's royal approval. The swearing in of the peers present was then pro- ceeded with, and their lordships then adjourned. HOUSE OF CONIMONS-THu-RsD&Y. The members elected to the reformed Houseof Com- mons mebyefiterday. Mr Disraeli entered the house at two o'clock, and took his seat upon the front Opposition bench. The Treasury bench was almost entirely deserted the only official occupants were MI Ayrton, Mr Grant Duff, and Mr K Hugessen. At two o'clock, the Yeoman Usher of the Black Rod appeared at the bar and summoned the members to the House of Lords for the purpose of heariug the Royal Commission summoning the attendance ef Parliament read. A large number of members accompanied the Black Rod to the Upper House. ELECTION OF SPEAKER. Sir G. Grey, on their return, addressing Sir Denison le Merchant, proposed that the Right Hon. J. Evelyn Denison, member for Noith Nottinghamshire, the late' Speaker, should take the chair. He highly eulogised the services, as Speaker, which had been rendered by the right hou. gentleman during the last twelve years, and stated that he had every reason to believe that the pro- posal he now made would meet with the unanimous ap- proval of the house. Mr Walp ile, who spoke from the third bench on the Opposition aide of the home, seconded the proposition. The motion was agreed to unanimously. Mr Denison briefly acknowledged the compliment which had been paid him, and gave an assurance to the bouse that the whole of his energies and abilities should be devoted to the service of the house. The Speaker was then conducted by Sir G. Grey and Mr Walpole to the chair, and took his seat amid general cheeting-the whole body of the members rising en masse, and remaining standing while the right bon. gentleman delivered a second speech, in which he asked the house for its co-operation and assistance in enabling him to conduct the ordinary business of the house. He claimed for both sides of the house full freedom of speeoh, and expressed a hope that whatever party strug- gle might be in prospect the house would rival their predecessors in maintaining law and order. (Cheers.) The Lord Advocate, Mr Moncrieff, then moved the adjournment of the house until yesterday (Friday) which was agreed to.
REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE I DURING THE PAST WEEK. The wind having become southerly this week we have had a return of damp mild weather, so vegetation as yet has had very little to endure from fro,t and though on the Black Sea as well as Baltic much ice has formed, we question whether the stoppage will be peramanent at all poits with'suuh sudden fluctu- ations. Nothing can exceed the healthy look of the early planted wheat, which in some places so covered the ground that it can scarcely be seen, and plants in such condition have become too strong to be seriously affected, even by a severe winter. It is the changes of spring and the ravages of insects which have most to be feared. The trade yet drags on heavily, but we hear of such a free use for cattle that such a necessary, and yet we cannot help saying a mal-appropriation, cannot fail greatly to diminish our reported super-abundance. But while Spring corn remains so scarce and dear, what else can be expected? Barley it seems, however, has passed its zenith, and the subsidence of the American demand must be considered a benefit to the coun- try, for growers might have appropriated more land to its growth than an average consumption would have warrauted; and should wheat be only of secondary consideration with the grow- ers, the population wouldsoon find the difference. A rise of 5s in spring would be a mere bagatelle on present rates and as noth- ing now pays importers, and importations must fall off, it is not at all Improbable we shall see it, notwithstanding the present imperturable dulness. The elections were lately blamed, but since they are over we have bread at 13d. The fact is, we have not been used to such a quality, and the double blessing to the community is lost sight of in the dissatisfaction of middle men. For mildew, rust, and the pets of a certain class, whose sympa- thy seldom exceeds the circumference of their pockets. The duluess lately noted in Franco has continued, with several mar- kets rather lower. Belgium has taken the same turn, but Hol- land, though dull, has not yeilded. Hambro', Dantzic, and several places in Germany, remained much as previously, not being so much depressed by the probable closing of the ports as expected. New York has rather given way, but exports were only moderate.
LIVERPOOL CORN MARKET.-TUESDAY. I Our imports during the past week show a Ming off in almost every article of wheat however they are still to a fair extent, say about 30,00) quarters, one-half being from America and Ca- lifornia, and the remainder from Egypt and the Mediterranean. The exports are light, the principal shipments being to Ireland and on the increase. The country markets held during the past week have mostly been Is per qr lower for English wheat; soma few however hive shewn more firmness, and in some even an advance of Is per qr has been obtained on the highest available prices of last week. Our own market has certainly assumed more steadiness, and American red wheats, which have latterlybeen such an|awful drug, have at last attracted attention, and some considerable purchases were made yesterday at 8d per cental ever the nomi- nal prices of last Tuesday. Flour has not yet met any improve- ment either in dtinaud or value. Indian corn as well as all other feeding stuffs have sUghtly given way inivallie owing to the unusually mild open woatber. Mark Lane yesterday was deci- dedly firmer.

BANGOR LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. I The ordinary fortnightly meeting of this board was held 011 Thursday last, the loth iustatit, when there were present Messrs. Charles Kick null, Morgan Richards, (ieorge Simpson, John Roberts, and Mr T. Ll. Edwards, Clerk and Surveyor. On the motion of Mr George Simpaon, seconded by Mr Morgan Richards, Mr liicknell was voted to the chair. The Ports/iore at Gaith.-Tite Clerk said that appli- cation inlist be made to the i'ishop of liaugor in refer- euce to the foreshore from Mr Parry's shipbuilding yard to Glandwr Terrace. The matter was left in the hands of the Clerk. The End of the Deanjield Drainage Dificulty.—Tbe Cleck said that he had written to Mr DIXun, and had received the following reply Deai)fiel(I WurkB, Bangor, December 2, 1868 "SlK,—I duly received your letter of the 16th ult. I have subsequently seen you, and shown that Mr John Jones was under a misconception as to where he should build. You will be able to explain this to your board. I have not seen Mr Jones siDce. There is uo difficulty as to Mr Griffiths and myself carrying out our engagements (contained in my own letter to the .board of the 2nd May, 1866). If the tuildings had progressed, it would have been doue in oonformity. It will now be finished as far as houses are already built, and I shall be glad (for Mr Griffith and self) if you will make the maiu drain as far as the row of small cottages, and charge the cost to us. I have the proper pipes at this place, and will send them down as soon as you are ready for them.- Yours truly, For self and Griffiths, I F,. J. J. DixoN. "Thos. Lloyd Edwards, Esq." The letter was considered satisfactory. The Clerk explained that John Jones happened to meet him in the office, and he (the Clerk) asked him where he intended building. He pointed out a spot which Mr Dixon did not approve of, and consequently the matter dropped. The Strand-street Drain.- The Chairman said they would remember that the Clerk's estimate of the proba- ble cost of this work was 1:3 17s 8d. The work was now completed, and he was glad to say that Mr Edwards had been able to carry it out at a reduction on that estimate of £1 3s. Had not the alterations been done, those living in the Ship Inn and adjoining houses would have been swilled in durifg the late heavy rains. The members remarked that the work was very satis- factory iudeed. Miscellaneous. -The Chairman then read a letter from Lord Penrhyn, stating that owing to a bad cold, he was unable to be present at the board. Several private improvement accounts were examined and passed. The Surveyor reported that during heavy rains Mr Griffith Davies's cellar was filled with water owing to there being a leak in the old drain. It was ordered that a gully be made to the main dram. The Recreation Ground.-Tlie Surveyor applied for permission to level a piece of ground on the mountain in order to make a bowling-green and croquet ground. He did not propose to employ any extra workmen to do the work, as the keeper of the ground could easily do it himself. The Chairman did not know where they could find a proper site on the mountain. The Clerk said there" ail room for a bowling and croquet ground. The matter was deferred to another meeting, when Lord Peurhyn would be present, in order to obtain his lordship's advice. The Penrallt-road.-A memorial, signed by a number of the respectable ratepayers of Upper Bangor, was read by the Chairman, asking for an additional lamp in Pen. rallt-road. Mr Simpson proposed that the application be referred to the Lighting Committee. The Chairman said the Lighting Committee had a similar application before them two or three years ago, and they then considered that they bad no right to light the road at all, as it was not a public one. No doubt the road was a nuisance, but if they were to put a lamp in every road in Bangor that contained nnis- auoes, their lighting expenses, instead of being X200 a year, would be £ 3 )0 or £400. There were very few places that were better lighted than Bangor was at the present time; as soon as they left one lamp, they came in sight of another. The Lighting Committee had done that, but on a back road hke that they did not feel justified to spend the money of the ratepayers. The board bad nothing to do with the road, and the question was, who last repaired it ? The Cletk said he did not believe the Board of Health ever repaired it. Mr Morgan Richards said they should know who did the road belong to, as it was very awkward in its pre- sent state. The Chairman said it would no doubt be a convenience to Upper Bangor to fix a gaa-lamp there, but the Gas Company would not be willing to give it without an extra expense on the ratepayers. Mr John Koberts said it was merely a private road to Penrallt. Mr Simpson—Yea, it is it has never been handed over to the town. The Clerk said they should know who put the road in repair last. Mr Kichards said the road was a very short cut to go to that part of Upper Bangor, in fact they might call it a necessity; and the question was, who was to repair it, and who was to light it. Mr Simpson said there was not so much difference if they went the other way. The Chairman said he would prefer going round a little than to go through that road. Mr John Roberts said that, if they were going to light the road, one gas-lamp would not be sufficient, but three at least would be required there. The field above the road was the property of Mr Hugh Roberts. The Chairman remarked that it would cost X5 or so to fix one lamp there it would not be much for the inhabitants of Bangor, who complained, to subscribe that sum, and then let the town pay the lighting ex- penw. Mr Richards objected, because Upper Bangor was a very important, probably the most important part of the town, aud paid by far the greatec part of the rates, so that it would not be right to ask them to subscribe any- thing. The Chairman said that as long as the road was not handed over to the Local Board, the least thing the Upper Bangor people could do would be to make a small subscription towards paying the expense of fixing a lamp there. Mr Simpson—But one would not do. The Chairman—No, it would be nothing. I think the better way will be for you to let Mr Roberts and I, as Lighting Committee, to report upon it. Mr Simpson remarked that that was the very thing he wanted in making his motion. The application was then referred to the Lighting Committee. Mr Roberts said that Mr White was with him that morning complaining that Brynteg Terrace, although it contained many lodgiug-houses, had no light in front, which made the place very dangerous at night. They ha.d more reason to complain than Penrallt. After a long and desultory conversation, the matter was left in the hands of the Lighting Committee. New Rate.-Tlie Clerk produced a carefully-prepared estimate for a new rate for the ensuing half-year. tfome of the members thought the medical officer's fee of ten guineas altogether unnecessary, and were of opinion that a more economical arrangement might be effected. It was therefore resolved that the present agreement with the medical officer be reconsidered at the expiration of three months, and that notice be given to Mr Humphreys to that effect. A conversation took place with regard to the possi- bility of reducing the item of wages by dispensing with the services of oue of the men, and it was suggested that the clerk might look after the men instead of Salisbury. It was agreed that Salisbury should be called in at the close of the meeting. After a minute examination of the clerk's estimate, a rate of 9d in the pound was allowed. The Cleik said he believed he could effect great livings in future, and he was almost certain the rate would be only 8et in the pound the next half year. The Repairing of Lamps.Several contracts were sent in for repairing the lamps of the town, and that of Mr John Doherty was accepted. Salisbury was then called in, and the Chairman, ad. dressing him, said that the board, in making out the estimate for the six months ensuing, had struck off one labourer's wages, and Mr Edwards could discharge one of the men. Before doing so, he would tell him ( Salis- bury) that in retaining him at the Local Board of Health they must have more manual work from him as la. bourerer. It would be for him to say whether he had any obj ection to be at work as early in the morning as the other men, and to do more manual labour. They would not discharge him if he had no objection to those tenm). b" S?isbury said he had no objection. The Chairman then said he must be at work the same as the other men. He would, however, receive the same wages as at present. Salisbury said that he would be satisfied, and he then withdrew. A Deputation.-A deputation, consisting of the Rev. Cauou Jones, Rev. Ellis Foulkes, Mr Griffith Davies, was then admitted to the room, and Canon Jones and Mr William Jones said that they came to support the iiTi\yer of the memorial iu regard to 1 enrallt road. The Chairman said that the matter had already been discussed, aud it had been referred to the Lighting Committee. A long conversation CSok place between Canon Jones and the Chairman, the latter saying that they as mem- Urs of that board must have regard to economy, as the lates were so heavy, but at the same time they might depend upon it their memoiial would have every atten- tion both from Mr Roberts and himself. After some further remarks, the deputation thanked the board and retired. The board then rose.
I HOLYHEAD. HOLYHEAD DOCKS AND WAREHOUSES.—The plans and section for the above works have been deposited with the Clerk of the Peace and Parish Clerk of Holyhead, and a bill is to bo brought forward in the ensuing Parlia- ment. Persons of respectability and influence have come forward, and with the concurrence and support of the Hon. W. O. Stanley, it is to be hoped that the project will soon be successfully carried out.

DENBIGHSHIRE ELECTIONS. Sm, --I have read the statement put forth m the last Carnarvon Herald by Mr Osborne Morgan's Committee. I (Ioii t know whether Col. Biddulph's friertd-i ruay think it satisfactory. It certainly is not so to me. Perhaps it was not intended that it should be. I look upon it as a lame and imputeut excuse for one of the most signal instances of ingratitude I have ever known. I do not think it has its parallel in the anuals of electioneering warfare. Col. Biddulph has been throughout his Parliamentary career, commencing 38 years ago, tbe consistent adhe- rent of the Liberal party. He has fought fuur Stvere and expensive contests for this county single handed, and to be thus set aside without, as far as 1 know, any fault alleged against him, is an act of treachery and in- gratitude oil the part of a restless and unsc upulous section of his own party, which I thiuk I am justified in characterising as above. Granted that the attack was intended for Sir Watkin, and that the object was to un- seat him—was it generous, when his position was found to be impregnable, to desert their old friend in the time of hit need, and to prefer the claims of a new and uutried candidate of the same political views. Truly, it is a sorry return on the part of his so-called friends, for a life-long devotion to their cause. And well may Col. Biddulph apply to himself these touching lines of the poet Could no other hand be found Than the one which once caressed me, To inflict a cureless wound 1 I trust that his real friends will mark these men, and will at a future day come out from among them.—I am, Sir- vour obedient servant. 1_- THOMAS HUGHES.

NORTH WAI ES ELECTIONS. SrR,-The elections being now terminated throughout these kingdoms at large, I will attempt a review of those within our district of North Wales. A letter upon this subject appeared in the TiiMi some few days s.oce, but it is so weak in reasoning, and so entirely void of truth, as to be unworthy of an) thing bevoud this passing notice. That the elections in North Wales have, with few exceptions, been most untoward, so far as the Conservative party is concerned, there can be no doubt. Lat us enquire what has been the cause of this 1 It will doubtless be aosweied the Irish (hurch question." Certainly this has had much effect, but I ear there is an under current of somethiug worse, a contest of the lower classes against the higher. Let us take the Llections as they occurred. In Merionethshire, a gentleman, not many years since a small solicitor in the town of Pwllheli, afterwards agent to the Mostyn family, and for many years Clerk of the Peace for the county, has wrested the r, presentation from iL ) oung gentleman, very popular, representing one of the oldest families, and heir to one of the largest estates in the country, and supported, :00, by all the principal landowners but one, and this after the representation has been he.d by Conservatives since December, 171, there having during that time been only four members. Again, let us turn to the Carnarvon Boroughs, the next eleclion, I think. Here Mr fiulkeley Hughes, the represent*- tive cf a respectable family—formerly a strong Tory-not much associated with tne principal families of his neighbourhood, beats the heir of the great house of GlynUilon, a youug man respected alike for character and taleut. The next election was, I believe, for the Anglesey Boroughs. Here, a gentleman of high character and noble family, who has most consistently supported the Liberal party, has come In, not without a severe contest, against a clever barrister, uncon- nected with the district, and not long since a small land our. ve) or at Trawsfynydd, in Merionethshire. In the County of Anglesey, Mr Davies, a timber merchant, a dissenter, represents that county, Lord Clarence Paget, a Liberal, having found it necessary to retire from the field. Now for Carnarvonshire, It there Is one man throughout the British dominions, who, owner of a vast property, has fully acted up to the responsibilities which such a position entails upon Dim, it is Lord Penrhyn. No one can honestly say that he has not been a perfect blessing to the county in which he re- sides Here his son is beaten by a lan-l owner of moderate property, of whom I say nothing further. I believe he has never before brought himself prominently forward In Carnar- vonshire, I will pass over in a few words the Denbigh Boroughs. I ought to have mentioned them before. There the seat is ob- tained from MrTownshed illainwsring, a gentleman of property, amiable and universally respected, a very liberal Conservative, by a clever advocate, son of a former small Incumbent in the neighbourhood. I now pass on to Denbighshire. Thankfully, most thankfully I say It, the old house of Wynnstay preserves its influence, and what is most satisfactory, it is so in the very liberal district of Wrexham, in Sir Watkin's own neighbourhood but what shall I say of Colonel Blildulph. Not one word of reproach could ever be uttered against him. I hate his politics, but I cannot otherwise than respect the man. he represents the great house of t hirk Cast.e, perhaps in that county not second to that of Wynnstay. He has ever been a true and honest Liberal. He has been thrown out by a son of the Vicar of Conway, without, I believe, one yard of land in the county. If these statements do net tend to establish the remarks I have made above, nothing will. As to the "screw" said to have been put in force by the Conservative landowners in North Wales, I deny it altogether. That the tenants on both sides usually vote with their landlords I do not deny. But the Meeting House screw has been most universal. These instances will sutllceA Minister in Me- rionethshire has hardly denied that he compared in his chapel the difference between the politics of Liberal and Tory, as that between heaven and hell. The grossest .untruths have been dis- seminated for political purposes, by a preacher in one of the chapels near Towyn. against one of the principal families in the neighbourhood. And as regards the landlord's "screw," the agent of a large estate in that neighbourhood, he being a Liberal, went with a Kadical farmer of Towyn to a tenant on the estate, and told him that unless he voted for Mr David Williams, his son should not have the farm after him, the old man being advanced in years. But as to the Irish Church, did not Mr Gladstone declare early in June last—I think his declaration will be found in the Timet of June 8—that he looked upon the Church In Wales as quite tUsU"ct from the Irish Church How could it be other- wise 1 Ireland is a United Kingdom the whole of Wales- North Wales—is not so large as Yorkshire. If Wales is to be freed from an Established Church, every little parish or town ship must. WiLleB i,, not a kingdom or nation, but a part of Enul&nd.—Yours obedientlv. ￼ A LOVER OF TRUTH.

I I ANGLESEY ELECTION. SIR,—A short time previous to the late election, we were visited in Anglesey by a Mr Leche from Cheshire, who seemed to have thoughts of standingfor the county. He delighted me and many others with his strong Con- servative and loyal principles, and we had at one time strong hopes that we might have an .opportunity of voting for him as our representative. Now since the election he has disappeared from among us, and if this should catch his eye, I beg to assure him that a deep interest in him and his principles is felt by a very numerous body of the electors of the Island of An!!lesev- Your obedient servant, Y AN OLD FASHIONED PROTESTANT. 10th Dec., 1868.
A HOLYHEAD DIVINE ON NEWSPAPER I REPORTING. Sin,-It is to be regretted that my friend, Mr John Roberts, Tai Hen, should so readily and hastily gallop into a correspondence, and attempt his attack upon me in such unkind terms, founded only on as reported in the paper." The word shame" and I" Welshman," were never imagined or uttered by me on the occasion referred to, nor upon any other. A I miutatement certainly but who is responsible for it ? Had my friend the wisdom to ask me for an explana- tion, before he had written to the newspaper, all this would have been pleasantly avoided; but now, after such a bitter letter, I am bound to answer it fully. Before I do so, I beg to submit the following corres- pondence Tai Hen, December 3, 1868. DEAR Sia,- If you thought it fit to take the liberty of using my name in connection with that of Dr. Edwards, in the public meeting held there, you ought to have attended more to truth. I did tell in private that Dr. Edwards entirely disapproved of Mr Lloyd's conduct, coming forward as he did to oppose a Liberal of the position of Mr Stanley; but that he told that it would be a shame" for any Welshman," &c., is not true. You make me a false witness against the Rev. Dr. Edwards, and I feel it my duty, in justice to myself, as well as to the Dr., to disavow the statement. I am very sorry that I have been put in such position, being myself a warm supporter of Mr Stanley.—Yours re- spectfully, J. ROBERTS. (Reply.) Holyhead, Dec. 4, 1868, My DEAR FRIEND,—I am in receipt of your note of the 3rd inst. You must not take the reports of the speeches but for what they are worth. Unless the official reporter of a paper is present, you can hardly rely upon the correctness of one single sentence. As one learned gentleman whom I casually met on the road yesterday remarked, The speeches are so incorrectly reported, that the best liliii is never to make one again at Holyhead." The qnotation in yours" sbame for auy Welshman," &c., is a sentence that never fell from my lips. I did endeavour to convey in Vfelsh word for word as you told Mr John Moies (Holyhead), and re- peated twice when Mr Samuel Roberts (Bangor), Mr J. Donne (Llangefni), Mr H. Jones (Holyhead), Mr U. Thomas (Plas Thelwali), and Mr R. Hughes (late of Tyuycae), were at dinner at Beaumaria, on ttia day of Mr Davies' election. In the North Wales Chronicle it is reported thus :— The people of Anglesey would have betrayed their ignorance had they not elected their old member." In the English, 1 think that thatis not wanting in conveying the Welsh expression you made. When a party called upon me the day after the meeting to ask if I would furnish him with a report to send to the Carnarvon Herald, I an- swered that I would consider till 12 o'clock that I had no notes written that I was disgusted with the reports of the Carnarvon Herald, all sent from thit town-that hardly a single sentence in my former speech was correctly reported, my meaning aud words on the most important questions completely adverse to the fact and expression; nor can you expect it other- wiee, unless you have a competent reporter. If you take my humble advice, take no further notice of it, and I am sure that the Rev. Dr. Edwards, Bala, will agree that it is better to leave everything drop into oblivion at the close of the elections, and the formation of anew I administration.' Forget all, and devote our ouinds to that iu which there is consolation and edifi- cation. I do, of course, allow you to make what use your discretion will dictate in reference to this letter but allow me to remark that I feel bound to allude to the very emphatic manner in which Mr M. Lloyd used the name of Dr. Edwards on the nomination day at Beaumaris, but which was suppressed in the North Wales Chroniclef although every other mischievous ex- pression was reported and printed, with intent to inj ure me and others. Before I conclude, I will give you one instance to prove that what you read in the paper is not to be de- pended upon. In the same meeting in this town, Dr Briscoe (our rector) is reported to have said, "If Mr Jones had criticized Mr Lloyd, he had only exercised his prerogative as an Englishman—now the fact is, I never criticized Mr Lloyd by a single expression. TLe Kev. Dr Briscoe said if Mr Jones had criticized Mr Stanley, he had only used his prerogative as an I English- man.' What a difference in the meaning?—Yours truly, RICHARD JONES. II.N.-As one gentleman told me to-day that my expression in Welsh only showed that Dr Edwards disapproved of such an opposition to Mr Stanley." Now this in itself seems to explain all, but I come next to a remark of Mr Roberts "defend his conduct and prove his consieteney without dragging other names iuto public and exaggerating what they might have said in private conversation." I have not exaggerated nor even mentioned the words complained of, nor did I refer to the name of my friend but to prove the incon- sistency and fallacy of Mr Lloyd's assertions. The facts are these. At the nomination day in Beaumaris, in his speech be used the following words, or similar to the same meaning Dr Edwards, of Bala, has said that the fact of one being a party at the Tea-room meeting is a sufficient mark for the people to reject these." On my return home the same evening, Mr John Moses, of Holy- head, told me that Mr John Roberts, of Taihen, had informed him the week before that Dr Edwards had told him at Bala that the Anglesey people would show their ignorance if they rejected their old Liberal member, Mr Stanley, and elected Mr Lloyd who came forward on no principle." I was actually astounded to hear such contradictory opinions applied to Dr Edwards, and felt at the time that Mr Lloyd used his name at Beaumaris for an election purpose. On the Friday following at Beaumaris, Mr Roberts repeated the same thing volun- tarily in the presence of those that I have. named and others, I think; when I observed how contrary that was to the idea conveyed by Mr Lloyd on the previous Mon- day in the Town-hall in reference to Dr Edwards, and which I felt convinced was a falsehood, or a mis state- ment, which afterwards shewed clearly or why was it suppressed in the report of the meeting in the North Wales Chronicle, and a libellious attack on me so pro- minently printed. To be sure of the wording, I asked Mr Roberts in presence of the whole company to re- peat it, which he did. Is that a private conversation with me ? Others have been dragged by the hair of their heads into the public papers without any cause whatever, for the sole purpose of endeavouring to slander and dragging go violently assisted at the time by a villain, whom no one could detect. I only quoted Mr J. Roberts to prove the untruthfulness of Mr Lloyd's assertion when dragging evidently the Doctor to his speech, and to prove that he is ashamed to admit it, and even denies it! Surely my friend ought not to be offended at being referred to in defence of the truth. John the Baptist stood for the truth at the sacrifice of his head. As all the other sarcastic and ungenerous hints and advices were composed when he was resting on a pillar of straw, which withered and foil off, on being examined, he wrote to both papers before he sent to me; his note I received on the Friday, the day the papers were issued. I pass over all as undeserving of notice, with cordial thanks for every advice to the people to consider what is the true meaning of the word Liberal." .Once the country falls under the control of Illiberal Radicals," such as Romanists, Ritualists, and others of the same bigotted spirit, its ruin is sealed.—Your obedient servant. RICHARD JONES. Holyhepd? December 10th, 188CHARD JONES.
THE WELSH ELECTIONS. Truly our" Liberal Welsh neighbours are engaged in very pretty quarrels. We will not quote the old proverb about a certain class of persons falling out, but looking on as calm spectators we cannot but be amused to find the pugnaciousness of our Cambrian friends be- coming more and more intense when the fray is over. The exchange of amenities between the two Liberal candidates in the Anglesey boroughs during the contest was a subject of pleasant contemplation to those who, like ourselves, felt no interest in the success of one or the other. The small teapot storm in Anglesey, how- ever, dwindles into utter insignificance by the side of that mighty big quarrel," as the late Daniel O'Connell used to say, which now convulses the Liberal camp in Denbighshire. We neither care nor feel called on to pronounce whether Colonel Biddulph's section or the self styled broader section of the Liberal party" have the right on their side. We will only express a hope that gentlemen in Colonel Biddulph's position may take warning from the fate which has befallen him. They may flatter themselves for a time that they reign in the hearts of their so-called Liberal constituents, but their popularity will only last until the broader section of the party find an opportunity for isaying effectually, We have no further need of your services." We have heard much of the chapel screw during these Welsh elections, and that the sermons in the meeting-houses, during the last few Sundays, have had more of elec- tioneering than Christianity in them. True, the charge is indignantly denied by one of our contemporaries, but a single fact is worth a thousand denials. Mr T. Gee, of Denbigh, on Sundays (and on week days too, for aught we know) is a preacher of the gospel in connection with the strictest sect among the religious communities in Wales. Now, how stand matters with regard to him ? Th-i local papers of last week publish a letter from Mr John Jones, solicitor, of Wrexham, from which we make the following extract" On the 22nd ult. I undertook a journey to Denbigh to see Mr Gee, to try and arrange to have the names of Colonel Biddulph and Mr Morgan put on the polling tickets. I saw him," (sic, query whom ?), "and Mr Ellis Eyton at the house of Mr Gee, and pressed the subject," &c., &c. On consulting our almanaek we find that the 22nd ult. was a Sunday, and that it was spent by the Rev. Thomas Gee, in com- pany with two solicitors and the unknown, mysterious him," in discussing, not the gospel, but the pending county election. If this was the business which was transacted in the house of the Rev. Thomas Gee on a Sunday, what are we to suppose was the .topic of dis- cussion in the meeting-houses where the Rev. Thomas Gee is in the habit of preaching, when more exciting political subjects leave him at leisure ?—Chester Courant.
