Our mfirara cable. TALES, SONGS, AND SONSETS, byi. W. Dalley.-London: Luugtuans. Mr Dalley is a poet, a pleasant and agreeable, not a pretentious one. Probably he could not write an epic, nor tell a tale in high sounding and mellifluous blank verse. But he gives us vety pretty songs and Bonnets, many of them relating to the passing occurrences of the day, and therefore, possessing the more interest. "Fair- tars March to Maseby," aud The Return of Admiral Blake," take us to another age, and they are of equal merit with those that refer to modem subjects. We do not go with Mr Dalley in all his opinions; but have read bilpuems with great pleasure nevertheless. We extract one of his iiodge "THE WAYSIDE SAILOR. Gravely that old wayfaring tar Upon the green bank bent, And trimmed his little bark, whilst far His busy thoughts were sent. Far back those aged messengers Were borne with swift consent; Of earth and sea the traversers, A weary way they went. Now were they parched on Egypt's sand- Now bouyaut on the Nile, Where Lion Nelson and his band Fought in good English style. That recollection neneø biø band- That memory wakes his smile- Mark how the veteran kindles, and Forgets his woes the while. And uow they pause at Trafalgai- France frowns, Spain pales with fear At yell, and shout of maddening war, And dreary death cries near But fate strikes England's loftiest star And ends his bright career- Gallant and unforgetful tar, 1 understand thy tear." THE ART JOURNAL, for December.-London: Virtue aud Co., Ivy-lane. This periodical is especially addressed to artists, and devoted to their interests, which are sought to be ad- vanced in every way open to the press, and that with per- fect fairness and honour. It also aims at cultivating a general taste for art, which the more widely diffused it is the greater becomes the demand for the works of the pointer and the engraver. But whilst characteristically an art journal," the general reader will always find much to interest him, and receive quite the value of his money if he becomes a subscriber. The articles on The Picture Gallery of the Hermitage, St. Petersburg," "The Koyal Armory of Kngland," "Jewellery and Goldsmith's Work iu Syria and Palestine," and Pinx- ton Chiua," in this number (the first three having been continued for several months), with many others that have been given during the year, are deserving the at- tention of all who seek for information on subjects of great interest, and which can be properly treated by only a few. The papers on the progress of art at home and abroad, occasionally given are also of interest to all who desire to increase their useful knowledge, as well as to amuse a vacant hour. The illustrations (three steel full page engravings, and numerous wood-cuts in each number) are always in the first style of art. In the pre- sent number there is a letter from Mr W. Jerdan, who has parsed his SOtli year, being one of our oldest literatcar* now living—relative to the subscription for a monument to Leigh Hunt, which has been opened by Mr S. C. Hall, the editor of the "Art Journal" for many years Leigh Hunt and William Jerdan were great literary enemies, belongiug to different schools in literature aud politics. Their enmity died away, though neither changed his Jopiuious, aLd Mr Jerdan says, With respect to Leigh Hunt and myself, the quarrel was a pretty quarrel as long as it lasted. ,Vheo over, our social relations might be said under other circum- stances to resemble those of Lord North and Col. Barre, of whom it is told, that when both were old and blind, and they met by chance at a public-room, Tunbridge Wells, the ex premier thus bespoke his quondam fierce opponent in the House of Commons ;—' Ah, Barre, not- withstanding all the reviling and retorting between us in Parliament, how happy should we now be to see each other.' Who knows ? Political hates and denunciations are not immortal, aud it Is not impossible that twenty years hence, should they be spared so long, Mr Glad- stone aged 80, and Mr Disraeli, aged 84, should shake hands, and wonder at the 'cursed spite,' and venom of the dim faded retrospect of former years-" THB CHRISTMAS NOlDER OF LONDON SOCIETY FOR 1868. —London: 217, Piccadilly. Last year, we recollect we were enabled to say a "good word for the" Christmas Number of London Society for lUlii," and we think that for 1808 is quite equal in literary merit, whilst the illustrations are, look- ing at the ensemble, better. lheru are twenty tales and pieces of poetry, not all equal in merit; but whilst the majority may be awarded to the first class of magazine articles, there are none which will not afford pleasure in the perusual. Besides the papers written solely for recreation, there are three good articles on Church Decoration," "New Years' Day in New York, and Christmas in Germany," in which some pleasant pieces of information will be found. We make an extract from the second. Christmas Day in New York is, as with us, the festivity of families, the domestic muster- day. New Years' is the day devoted to friendship, to society at large, and to fashion. On Christmas, every- body stays at home on New Years', everybody is abroad. Christmas in New York is as quiet as a Sunday, at least to the street-passenger; and a sorry fate in his who is a street-passenger on that day, who, in the midst of innumerable feasts has but the dreary blank of vacant streets where to wander, and sigh at his ill-luck. But New York is full of life out-of-doors; the streets are crowded, the sounds are merry on every side, aud every- body has that infectious air of gaiety and jolly good nature which the convival custom of the day, and the excitement of chatting with a host of agreeable acquain- tances inspires. It is essentially the gala-day and carnival of fashion, and of people of the world For once, the busy doivu town thoroughfares are deserted; a dreary tranquillity reigns in the realm of commerce." and at high-noon, the carnival of fashion begins." It is carried on through the day,—the servants imitating their masters and mistresses. But, the social duties of New Year's over, society has done its duty and squared its amounts; and the divinity fashion, content for the while with the homage of its worshippers in the day- time at least, yields up her masculine votaries to com- merce." Those who wish to know more of New Years' Day in New York, we refer to Christmas Number of London Society," in which there are many equally good things.
The Conservative Land Society had its sixteenth annual meeting on Tuesday. The report of the board stated the receipts for the year ending September 30th to be 1:188,342 19s 6d, and the grand totals to zel,288,1,146 7s 3d since the formation of the society the total withdrawals being £ 328,984 IUs Gd, and the jEoO shares issued to £ 1,527,700. The sale of land was ±1583,050 15s Id; the reverse fund was £ 15,089,132. The increase in the various sources of income for the year reached XSI,824 9s 3d. The dividend for the year was declared to be six per cent. The rate of interest ou shares remained at five per cent., and on deposits at four per ceiit. per aiiniiui. The report stated that the land business was now carried on by the United Land Com- pany (Limited), and the advances on building loans on security, Ac., were made by the Conservative Land Society, the combined principle of action having worked successfully. A deputation waited on Monday on the Right Hon. H. A. Bruce at the Home Office to urge upon the Home Secietary the importance of taking more active measures for dealing with our criminal classes. Sir W. Crofton was the spokesman. He urged—first, that the Irish system of registration should be extended to England, so that criminals on emerging from prison with a ticket- of-leaw) sholtld be kept under surveillance by means of a central register, in which should be entered their names, places of destination, and employment, the police authorities in places to which ticket-of-leavers go to be duly informed. Secondly, that if persons twice con- victed of felony should afterwards be found to be with. out any honest means of livelihood, they should be liable to arrest, and bound to give security for engaging :n honest work during a certain stated period; or failing that to be s-iit to the workhouse. Nlr Bruce expressed great interest in the important subject brought before him, and after putting various questions, promised that the matter should have the attention of the Govern. ment. The Birmingham Liberals held a meeting on Monday night to consider what was to be done in consequence of Mr Bright having vacated his seat by taking office. Mr Bright sent a letter, in which he said It is not a month since you selected me as one of your representa- tives in Parliament, and before Parliament met the seat you intlusted to me became vacant. I have accepted office in the Administration which Mr Gladstone has just formed, and I must return to you to sanction the step I have taken. I trust you will not withdraw the confidence you hive so long placed iu me. I shall feel it a great houour again to be elected to represent your voice and interest iu the House of Commons. On the day of election I hope to be permitted to say more than can be conveniently said in this address." The follow- ing resolution was carried unanimously That this meeting heartily approves the course taken by Mr Bright in joiuiug the Ministry of Mr Gladstone, and, believing that Mr Bright is worthy of the continued confidence and support of his constituents, trust that he will be re- elected to represent this borough in Parliament by the unanimous vote of the electors."
HOUSE OF LORDS-FRIDAY. I The House of Lords met at two o'clock, and a batcn of peers, having been sworn, Colonel Clifford, the Yeo- man Usher of the Black Rod, was directed to summon the attendance of the Lower House, in order that the newly elected Speaker might be presented to the Royal Commissioners, who were the Lord Chancellor, the Duke of Argyll, Earl de Grey and Ripon, the Earl of Kimberley, and Viscount Sydney. The Speaker, dressed in a simple Court costume, and attended by the Ser- jeant-at-Arms bearing the mace, and a large body of members of the Lower House, soon afterwards appeared at the bar.. -j The Speaker, addressing the Commissioners, said-l have to communicate to your lordships that, in obedi- ence to her Majesty's command, the Commons have proceeded to the choice of a Speaker, and their choice has fallen upon myself. 1 now present myself at your bar, and submit myself with all humility to her Majes- ￼ gracious approbation. Lord Chancellor -Mr Denison, We are command, ed to assure you that her Majesty is so fully sensible of your zeal for the public service, and your MPe suffici- ency to discharge the arduous duties which her faitbful Commons have selected you to discharge, that she does most readily approve and confirm you therein. The Speaker-I submit with all humility and grati- tude to her Majesty's gracious commands. It is now my duty in the name and on behalf of the Commons of the United Kingdom to lay claim to all their ancient and undoubted rights and privileges -to freedom of speech in debate, freedom from arrest in their persons and their servants, to all the freedom.of access to her Ma- jesty which occasion shall require, and that the most favourable construction shall be put upon all their pro- ceedings. With regard to myself, I pray that if any error should be committed it may be imputed to myself, and not to her Majesty's loyal Commons. The Lord Chancellor—Mr Speaker, we have it fur- ther in command to inform you that her Majesty doth most readily confirm all the rights and privileges which have ever been granted to or conferred upon the Com- mons by any of her Royal predecessors. With respect to yourself, Sir, though her Majesty is sensible that you stand in no need of such assurance, her Majesty, will, however, put the most favourable construction upon your words and actions. The Speaker bowed and withdrew.
HOUSE OF COMMONS-FRIDAY. The House of Commons met at two o'clock, and shortly afterwards the Speaker was summoned by the Yeoman Usher of the Black Rod (Colonel Clifford) to the bar of the House of Lords. On his return the right bon. gentleman addressed the House as follows:—I have to report that her Majesty through a Commission of the House of Lords appointed by her has approved the choice which the House made of myself yesterday as Speaker. I then in your name, and on your behalf, claimed all the usual rights and privileges, including freedom of debate, freedom from arrest of their persons for debt, access to her Majesty when occasion shall de- mand, and that a most favourable construction may be put on your proceedings. Ail these her Majesty has, through her Commissioners, been pleased to allow and confirm, I have now to repeat my thanks to you for the honour you have conferred on me, and I would remind hon. members that they should now proceed to take the oath prescribed by law. The Speaker then took the oath, and signed the Par- liamentary roll, and the first batch of members was sworn in.
HOUSE OF COMMONS—SATURDAY. The house met this day at two o'clock, but the busi- ness was entirely confined to the swearing in of mem- bers. On Monday the house was similarly engaged.
HOUSE OF LORDS—TUESDAY. Their lordships met at two o'clock, at which hour the Royal Commissioners—who were the Lord Chancellor, the Earl of Bessborough, Earl de Grey and Ripon, the Earl of Kimberley, and Lord Sydney -entered the huuse, and took their seats in front of the throne. The Lord Chancellor then directed the Usher of the Black Rod to desire the attendance of the House of Commons; and shortly afterwards the Speaker, attended by a number of the members of the Lower House, ap- peared at the bar. THE QUEEN S SPEECH. The Lord Chancellor then read the Queen's Speech MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, We have it further in command from her Majesty to acquaint you that since the time when her Majesty duemed it right to call you together for the consider- ation of many grave and important matters, several va- cancies have occurred in the House of Commons, owing to the acceptance of office from the Crown by members of that house. It is therefore her Majesty's pleasure that an opportunity may now be given to issue writa for supplying the vacancies so occasioned, and that after a suitable recess you may proceed to the consideration of such matters as will then be laid before you. The Lords Commissioners having retired, the Lord Chaucellor, who was introduced by Lords Chelmsford aud Homilly, took the oath and his seat with the usual ceremony. On the motion of Earl Granville, their lordships ad- journed until Thursday, 11th February.
HOUSE OF COMMONS-TUESDAY. The house met at two o'clock, and at ten minutes past six, Augustus Clifford, the Usher of the Black Rod, ap- peared at the bar, and summoned the attendance of the Speaker in the Upper House. The Speaker, accompanied by many hon. members, proceeded at once to obey the summons; nnd on his return he read to the house the communication from her Majesty which appears above. Several batches of members were then sworn at the table; after which the Speaker read a portion of the standing orders relating to the privileges of the house, which were severally put and agreed to as resolutions. Mr Otway laid on the table some papers from Mr Rassam relating to Abyssinia. Air Ayrton, in asking the house to proceed to order the issue of new write, called attention to the act passed last session for regulating the proceedings at elections, and explained that it extended the period for presenting petitions from 14 days after the return was made to 21 days. The extended period had not ex- pired in the case of all the seats which had just been vacated, and he therefore proposed now to move only for writs where 21 days had expired since the return had been made. He should then move that the house should adjourn until the 29th of December, so that the remaining writs might then be issued. The following new 'writs were then ordered on the motion of Mr Ayrton;-For Greenwich, in the room of the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone, First Lord of the Treasury-(cheers) for Oxferd, in the room of the Right Hon. E. Cardwell, Secretary for War; for the University of London, in room of the Right Hon. R. Lowe; for Pontefract, in the room of the Right Hon. H. C. E. Childers, First Lord of ths Admiralty; for Birmingham, in the room of the Right Hon. John Bright, President of the Board of Trade. (A laugh from the Opposition, followed by cheers from the Minis- terial beuches.) On the writ being moved for London in the room of Mr Gosehen, Mr Golduey stated that a petition had been presented against Mr Uoscben's return, and the house had no in- formation as to whether the seat was claimed. Sir P. Palmer said it would be improper to issue the writ if the house had no certain knowledge of the mat- ter, but it was always the practice of the house to re- ceive information of facts known to its members. After a few words from Mr Collins, Mr Ayrton stated that Mr Goschen's seat was not claimed. The writs were then ordered, as also were writs for Southwark, in the room of the Right Hon. H. A. Layard, First Commissioner of Works; for Halifax, in the room of Mr stansfeld, a Lord of the Treasury for Plymouth, in the room of Sir R. P. Collier, Attor- ney-General; for Exeter, in the room of Sir J. D. Coleridge, Solicitor-General; for Bradford, in the room of the Right Hon. W. E. Forster, Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education; for Ripon, in the room of Lord John Hay, a Lord of the Admiralty; for Truro, in the room of Captain Vivian, a Lord of the Treasury; for Warebam, in the room of Mr Calcraft, deceased. The following notices of motions, to be made after the reassembling of Parliament, were given :— Colonel Sykes, to call attention to the relation between Great Britain and Ireland to the colonies. Mr Hardcastle, a bill to amend the law relating to game and trespass. Mr Candlish, to call attention to the state of our ma. ritime relations with France, aud the exclusion of our coasting vessels from the trade of that country. Sir J. Klphiustone, to call attention to the reduction and discharges from the dockyards, the reasons aud causes of those discharges, and the distress which has been brought upon the persons discharged.

Mr Staveley Hill, to call attention to the commercial treaty with France ratified in 1868, and its effects upon the silk trade of this country.

LLANGEFNI. THE RENT AUDIT OF SIR RICHARD B. W. BULKELEY, BART. The above rent audit was held at the Bull Hotel, Llangefni, on Monday and Tuesday, the 7th and 8th instant, when about 170 sat down to a most sumptuous dinner, prepared by Mr and Mrs Crewdson, the worthy host and hostess. Sir Richard himself was unable to be present owing to indisposition, and which was greatly felt by all his tenants, and a gloom was cast over all the pro- ceedings. A. Laurie, Esq., ably presided, supported in the vice- chair by Richard Williams, Esq., Bodafon. The Rev. A. Ellis said grace and returned thanks, and on removal of the cloth, The Chairman said-Gentlemen, I charge you to fill your glasses to a toast that is always drunk first on these occasions, that of our Sovereign Lady Queen Victoria. I have no doubt that we are all loyal subjects. Gentle- men, I give you The Queen. The Chairman—The next toast that follows is The Prince and Princess of Wales and the rest of the Royal Family, and I hope that the magnificent reception given them at Carnarvon,—second to none given them where- ever they go, will be the means of bringing them Boon and often amongst us. The Chairman—The next toast I propose is one that usually follows, namely, The Bishop and Clergy of the Diocese, and Ministers of all Denominations. They have sacred and very responsible duties to per- form, the proper discharge of which ought to command our reverence and respect. With this toast I shall couple the names of the Revs. Mr Ellis and Mr Donne. Rev. A. Ellis in reply, said—Mr Chairman, Vice- chairman, and gentlemen, I beg to thank you most cor- dially for the manner in which you have proposed and drunk our health, though the majority of the gentlemen present differ from me in matters of opinion, but such gatherings as these guarantee that we shall always live in peace and in good feeling towards each other. Rev. J. Donne replied on behalf of the Ministers of all Denominations. The Chairman—Mr Vice and gentlemen-I charge you to fill your glasses to the toast that I am going to propose next, namely, Sir Richard Bulkeley, Baronet. I am confident in saying, that though absent to-day in body, he is present with us in spirit; it is only a few days since he was in hopes of being able to fill this chair I so very unworthily occupy. He always looks forward to the audit at Llangefni as one of the most interesting days of the year, but I am sure you will rejoice with me tJ know that he is getting better. We will drink better health to Sir Richard Bulkeley. Rev. A. Ellis—Mr Chairman, by your permission, I have a toast that I wish to propose, and I am certain that you will receive it most cordially. Mr Chairman and gentlemen, I beg to give you The health of Lady Bulkeley. W. Hughes, Esq.—Mr Chairman, by your permission I beg to propose a toast, namely, Captain and Mrs Bul- keley, and I know that it will be heartily received, after the most enthusiastic manner in which the health of Sir Hichard and his good and generous lady have been drunk; for I am certain, from what I know and hear of Sir Richard's heir apparent, Captain Bulkeley, that he will be as good a landlord as Sir Richard Bulkeley Is, any day. John Edwards, Esq., said-Gentlemen, the Chairman has placed in my hauds a toast, that is the health of Captain T. Bulkeley and Mr C. Bulkeley. I am sorry that the toast has not been placed in better hands; pro- bably the Chairman has placed it in toy hands because I feel some interest in sporting if so, I foul myself moat happy iu proposing their healths, as I know them to be thorough good sportsmen. Gentlemen, I therefore beg to give the good health of Capt. T. Bulkeley and Mr C. Bulkeley. Mr W Hughes—Gentlemen, I have a toast to propose, and I charge you to drink it in a bumper. We all know the benefit of having a good and generous landlord, and unless we get as good and generous an agent the tenants will sure to suffer, and we are favoured with having both, and I am certain that every heart cordially unites with me in wishing Mr Laurie good health. The Chairman, in reply, said-Mr Vice, Mr Hughes and gentlemen, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the happy and unanimous response you have given to this toast. The duties of an agent are onerous, I confess, and to discharge those duties efficiently is no In' I" 1- .J' -j = 1 L easy task out certainly oir uicnara » practical Know- ledge, as an agriculturalist, has been, and still is, of im. mense value to me. It is my most fervent wish to fol- low up that golden rule, to do to other" as you would have others do to you." Before sitting down, I shall give you success to Agriculture and prosperity to Baron Hill Tenantry in Anglesey. I believe Sir Richard has more tenants of wealth, energy, and enterprise than any other landlord in the county. You have had a great deal to contend with during last season, it was so un- usually dry, paralyzirg the cattle trade entirely, which we all depend so much upon nevertheless, you have, as usual, come promptly forward to square accounts, which I now thank you for, and be assured that I only reiterate the sentiment of your worthy landlord, when I wish you all, individually and collectively, long life and prosperity. I shall couple this toast with the name of Mr Williams, vice-chairman. Mr Williams responded, and thanked them for the kind manner in which they had proposed and drunk his health. The Chairman—Gentlemen, the next toast that 1 shall propose is The Town and Trade of Llangefni, coupled with the name of William Hughes, Esq., Bank. Mr William Hughes, in reply said—Mr Chairman and gentlemen, I have resided now for seventeen years in Llangefni, and during that time great improvements have been made. The other day I met with a man that remembered Llangefni with only three houses, and dur- ing the time that I have resided here,' the schools, and nearly all the other large buildings have been erected, and the business of the town has greatly increased. There is no person in Llangefni that has its success at heart more than I have. I long to see the day when we shall have a market hall built. Sir Richard has promised to build one, and I am certain Sir Richard will keep his word. Another thing that I want to have is a powerful fire engine. Mr Owen, Nantnewydd, and my- self have already collected X 120 towards that object. Sir Richard Bulkeley has subscribed C20 Sir R. Grif- fiths, Pencraig, JES Lord Boston, X5 Lady Wiilough. by, 45; and the Hon. W. O. Stanley, X3 and I hope some of the gentlemen present will do the same before they leave. thely 'be Chairman having given The health of Mr and Mrs Crewdson, the worthy host and hostess, and Mr Ciewdson having responded, the company soon after broke up.
THE MANUFACTURE OF JEWELLERY.—The striking de- velopement of Fine Art productions in this branch of the industrial trades since the period of the great Exhibition is admirably exemplified in a most interesting little work just published by Mr 'J. W. Benson, who holds the ap- pointment to H.R. fi. the Prince of Wales, and H.H. the Maharajah of Burdwan, of 25, Old Bond Street; 99, Westbourne Grove; and City Steam Factory, 58 and 60, Ludgate Hill. It is profusely illustrated with the most beautiful designs of bracelets, brooches, earrings, lockets, &c., &c., in every conceivable style, and with prices at- tached and thus the intending purchaser is enabled to make a selection suited to his taste, and have it forwarded to any part of the United Kingdom, India, or the Colonies. The price of this most useful guide is twopence, for which it is forwarded post free, and to any one who con- templates it purchase, either for personal wear or for a wedding, birth-day, Christmas, or other present, it will be found of the very greatest service. 1539 IMPORTANT CURE OF TOOTHACHE.-Bunter's Nervine gives immediate and permanent relief in ordinary Tooth- ache. It also forms a stopping, and saves the Tooth, thus rendering extraction unnecessary. It does not injure the other Teeth. From the Medical Testimonials received, the following are selectefl.-From J. Hounsell. Surgeon, Bridport, Dorsetshire.—" I consider Bunter's Nervine specific far Toothache. Very severe cases under my care have found instantaneous and permanent relief. I there- fore give my testimony of having used it with invariable success, and recommend its use to the Profession and Public as invaluable to all who suffer from Toothache.' From E. Smith, Esq., Surgeon, Sherston, near Cirences- ter.—" I have tried Bunter's Nervine in many cases of severe Toothache, and in every instanco permanent relief has been obtained; I therefore strongly recommend it to the public." Ask for Bunter's Nervine;" it may be had of any Chemist, at Is lid per packet, or post free fot 15 stamps, from J. R, Cooper, Chemist, Maidstone. 168

THE DENBIGHSHIRE ELECTION. I SIP,-In your last impression you have a letter signed "AnElector," who stated that Mr Chambres' remark at the declaration respecting Sir Watkin's address repudiating all connection with Col. Biddulph was untrue, and that that address was not iasued until after the coalition between the Liberal candidates had been made. Now, Sir, I can verify Mr Chambres' statement, for on Monday morning, the 23rd inat., the walla of Wrexham were placarded with the announce- ment that the rumour that Col. Biddulph and Sir Watkin had entered into a compact was untrue." I would advise your correspondent to be more careful in his enquiries before he attempts to villify the name of an honourable gentleman, and let his zeal for his cause find vent in other directions. Apologising for troubling you.—I am. yours, 4c. I. A LIBERAL.
A CHARGE OF POLITICAL TREACHERY. SIR,-A report has been in circulation since the Borough Election, that Mr Griffith William Preece, the registrar of births and deaths, after being present at, and taking part in Mr Wynne's Committee, not only voted for Mr Bulkeley Hughes, but carried with him several voters who otherwise would have remained neutral. Now, I think, that in justice to Mr Preece, an old inhabitant of Bangor, he should have the opportu- nity of explaining this apparent piece ef treachery. If he cannot do so, his fellow-townsmen will no doubt be able to put their own construction upon this change of political opinion.—I am, Sir, yours, &c. CONSISTENCY. [We shall be very happy to afford Mr Preece the medium of our columns to explain, as he no doubt can, the insinuation made against him.—ED. N. W. C.]
THE REV. RICHARD JONES AND THE NEWS- I PAPER REPORTERS. SIP, -The Rev. Richard Jones, Holyhead, seems to labour under a kind of infatuation which leads him to constant mistakes. He persists in maintaining that Mr Lloyd made reference to Dr. Edwards, Bala, in his speech at Beaumaris, on the nomination day. Though your reporter has emphatically contradicted the state- ment he has the impertinence to repeat the assertion in your last impression. Being present at that memorable meeting, and in a condition of mind to give attention to all the proceedings, I beg to assert that Mr Lloyd made no mention whatever of Dr. Edwards, and I am sur- prised that Mr Jones will not be convinced on the matter. The Rev. J. Owen, Independent Minister, at Llan- gefni, in his reply to Mr Stanley, made a reference to the-tea meeting, and remarked that the eminent Doctor of Bala was of opinion that any connexion with that affair was sufficient in itself to ruin the reputation of any Liberal. Why Mr Jones should make confusion worse con- founded," I cannot imagine but his state of mind on the occasion probably will account for it. A LIBERAL. Holyhead, Dec. 15, 1868. [We have abundant other testimony to similar effect as the above. Surely after this, even Mr Jones will have the manliness to acknowledge himself in the wrong and make the amende honorable to our represen- tative who has raised his ire.-ED. N. w.e.)
THE CALVINISTIC METHODISTS' MINUTE. SIR,-I was much amused at the ietter published in your last week's issue by the secretary of the Monthly Meeting, lately held at Caeathraw. Its object is so thoroughly palpable and rusive, that no one can fail to estimate it at its full value. Surely the worthy secre- tary of those "in convocation assembled" must consider himself as a most accomplished adept in salving over sores so very recently opened with such wanton and ruthless disregard to consequences, or he would not have the hardihood to pen such very shallow sophistry. The forbearance of the Conservative party has always been great—indeed, in some instances, really culpable; and acting from past experience of its potency, the old Liberal ruse of exhibiting wounded feelings is again re- sorted to, and an apparent eagerness to correct the mistaken (!) notions regarding the chapel influence, as brought to bear on the late election, is paraded with ex- cessive pertinacity. Surely Conservatives are not so ex- ceedingly dull, and their conclusions so thoroughly fickle, as to require the benign assistance of any Liberal advocate to quicken the one and steady the other and we naturally crave the right of forming correct conclu- sions from honest premises. But even this is denied to us by Mr Lewis, who, in a most peculiar style of rhe- toric, regrets the existence of thiugs imaginary, and argues the non-existence of stubborn facts. We cannot but express our regret that such a gulf should subsist between the aristocracy of our land, and the religion, of their nonconformist neighbours." What! would Mr Secretary have us believe that it is really honest to pit man, either individually, or as a class, against a form of religion ? Would it not be more con- sonant with the rule of strict integrity to compare class with class; then, however great the gulf may be, mutual forbearance, tempered with a Christian spirit may span the most dark and gaping gorge that party zeal may have created. VV hat, logically speaking, has aristocracy to do with religion of N onconformists. The com pall- son is illegal and radically void. But the design to create contention, even with such spurious coin, is very evident; for generally, poor humanity is more easily piqued by casting a slur on its pecedilloes and hair-split notions, than on its common creeds. If there is a social and necessary gulf fixed between the aristocracy and the middle and lower classes, their religion is one and stands on the broad basis of Christianity, Not a single political sermon was delivered in any one of our pulpits." Certainly that is saying a good deal; but notwithstanding its apparenaly out-spoken honesty, it is somewhat ambiguous. We have all our ideas as to what constitutes a political sermon. If Mr Lewis means to say that politics were not mentioned in the pulpits; or that the fundamental doctrines of Libe- ralism (Chapel v. Church) were not extensively enlarged upon, then I must believe that persons whom I have always considered honest and truthtelling, to be labour- ing under strange delusions, or they must have invented, against their own ministers, calumnies without any evident object. But I can hardly believe such to have been the kcase; and in the face of such facts as the fol- lowing, it is perfectly impossible for me to do so. I heard an old man the other day, in speaking of the election, express himself thus Well, well, whatever you think about it, my good people, I am really sick and tired of the affair; for I have heard nothing but election in chapel for these last two mouths-the Scriptures have been quite banished from out our pulpits, and party opinion substituted for gospel truths." This person had no object in concealing the truth, and screening a body which acknowledges the right of ics ministers to take part in political matters, and has thrown open its chapels for the purpse of holding electioneering meetings; and only maintains that the sanctity of the pulpit has been preserved intact during the contest—that that sanctum sanctorum box, 3 feet square, is sufficient to establish their claim to non-interference as a religious sect. It is a fact (and the liberty is granted) that preachers were the chief Liberal speakers during the election and why this attempt to exonerate a body from accusation, when such proceedings are sanctioned. Does it not appear that the preacher, in ,the pulpit, may be a very angel, but on the hustings just the opposite I-two perfect beings—in one place pouring the oil of good fellowship on the troubled waters; in another, stirring up strife, and brewing dissension ? What an anomaly It only requires one thing more and the farce will be complete —an address of sympathy to the unsuccessful candi- dates. It was never intimated by any means that any member would lose anything in a religious sense in con- sequence of his voting." What is the natural inference from such an assertion ? Thatit was in the power of some one to cause spiritual loss to members; but that an over-ruling kindness, and sympathetic clemency withheld the ban of excommunication, or the blighting anathema. But can the word worldly be substituted for "religious I" I suspect not; for a person working at Carneddi new Methodist chapel, who bad been dunned almost to distraction for his vote, after having registered the same in favour of the Hon. Mr Pennant, on re- turning to work was discharged without a minute's notice. Any reason might be assigned for such sum- mary preceedings, but the occasion appears very sug- gestive of the real cause. With otle more remark I conclude. How comes it that the name of Mr Thomas Lewis, Bangor, is affixed to this manifesto of the Monthly Meeting, instead of that of the old Secretary, Mr Isaac Watkins, Clenneney ? If all meetings of the Methodists are so completely devoted to the furthering of the spiritual welfare of the people, why was it that the fact of Mr Watkins having been convicted after a heated discussion of the infamous practice of canvassing for the Hon. G. D. Pennant, was deemed sufficient for him to bo supplanted by one who not only cauvassed for Mr Parry, but went about pictur- ing to the enraptured multitude the Elysium that that gentleman would conjure forth from among the dry bones of Westminster if they would use their exer- tions to return him I am. vours truly. | 16th. 1. ANTI-CONFESSIONAL. December 16th.
FRIGHTFUL SCENE IN DOUGLAS BAY. I SIX SEAMEN DROWNED. I On Saturday night, shortly before eleven o'clock, the schooner Three Janes, from Preston to Douglas, an- chored in Douglas Bay. There was a heavy gale from the S.S.E. blowing at the time, and a strong iushore wind running. The schooner, from the time she cast anchor, commenced to drag slowly towards the open space between the old red pier and the new landing pier in course of construction on the Pollock rocks. There- suit of thej construction has been that the sea is more concentrated in its action on the space between the piers, and when there is a heavy swell in the bay, ac- companied by an inshore wind, as was the case on Saturday night, the effect is terrific. When the schooner was at anchor the steamer Douglas, which had just ar- rived from Liverpool, passed her going into harbour, and immediately afterwards a crew of harbour boatmen put out to her assistance. When they arrived at the schooner they were engaged by the master to assist him, and he went ashore in their boat to endeavour to secure the assistance of the steamer to tow the schooner iu. On landing him at the pier this boat returned to the vessel, and the crew of the schooner came ashore in her. A second boat had been meanwhile put out to her as- sistance, and the members of the Douglas Hocket Bri- gade had thrown two rockets to her, each conveying a line, but in the darkness the crew were unable to find the lines. All this time the schooner was dragging to. wards the space between the two piers, aud it was feared that if once the came into contact with the beach she would become a total wreck. The captain waited upon the manager of the Isle of Man Steampacket Company to engage the steamer, but as it was impossible to turn the steamer where she was then lying, and it was equally impossible to back her lower down the harbour for that purpose, his request was refused. He accordingly re- turned to the boat's crew which he had engaged to assist him, and he and they put out in the small boat to go to the assistance of the schooner and endeavour to wrap her into the harbour. The sea was at this time terrific round and about the schooner, while the wind was so strong that it was difficult to stand on the pier. The Rocket Brigade shewed their blue lights for the guidance of the boat, which made but slow headway amidst the boiling serf. When she was about ] 00 yards or so from the schooner, a huge wave struck the boat with great violence, and carried away the oars on the lee side of the boat. The result was that the men fell down, the boat canted up, and the men on the weather side of the boat lost their oars also, and it is supposed that three out of the six occupants of the boat were washed into the sea. The pier was thronged with thousands of people, and it would be difficult to picture what this frightful accident within a few yards of them created. Everything was confusion and dismay for a little time, and When something approaching a calmness was at length restored, aud the green light once more flashed over the surface of the water, the boat (this time with only three men in her) was clearly to be seen. The oars were gone, but the poor fellows were using two of the bottom boards of the boat, and were thus endea- vouring to paddle to the schooner. Their cries were most heartrending, and Captain Scott, the piermaster at Douglas, called for volunteers, and at length succeed- ed obtaining three, and then those four brave men put off in a small boat to the rescue of the drowning meu. By the time they arrived at the scene of the disaster all trace of the boat and its occupants had disappeared, and after a vain search in the midst of a raging sea, Captain Scott sprang into the schooner, while the other men re- turned to shore. After considerable difficulty the schooner was warped iuto the harbour, and is now held possession of by Captain Scott, who alleges that she was a derelict when he took possession of her. The na mes of the occupants of the boat at the time of the disaster were-Alfred Jackson (the master of the schooner), James Hillam, John Mucklehoon, James Lace, John Careu, ,and George Dagleish, all of Douglas, boatmen. The bodies of CAptain Jackson, Lace, Dagleish, and Hillam were picked up on the beach on the following morning.
THE WitECK OF TilE HIBEIINIA. A HEARTRENDING STORY. Up till Thursday night week, says the Glasgow Herald, no tidings had reached the city with regard to the two boats still missing, namely, No. 2 lifeboat, in charge of the chief oflicer, Mr James lieid, and No. 4 quarter- boat under the guidance of Mr Atkins, third officer. The hope may still be cherished that they have been the objects of some Providential deliverance. The fol- lowing story will be read with most melancholy interest by the public. The sufferings which the 28 passengers of Davies's boat endured, only dimly shadowed in the narrative, and the miraculous escape of the three sur- vivors who clung to the boat after she capsized for four long hours, seem to place the tale almost beyond the reach of credibility. Oue can scarcely imagine all the horrors and terrors of the long voyage, which lasted from twelve to thirteen days, in the midst of storms and glimpses of fair weather, and with but one ray of hope near the end of the voyage in the shape of a passing vessel. The ill-fated passengers were all the time alone on the wide ocean in their frail craft, with scanty pro- visions, and with no outlook but the cheerless gloom of the sea around them. William Davies, the second officer of No. 3 lifeboat, says-" I acted as second officer on beard the screw- steamer Hibernia, which left New York on Saturday the 14th of November last, with 142 souls, all told. All went well, although the weather was stormy, until Tuesday, the 24th of November, when the accident oc. curred to the screw shaft which led to the foundering of the ship. When it was resolved to leave the Hiber- nia, there being no hope of repairing the mischief which had been done, I was appointed to take charge of No. 3 lifeboat, in which a complement of 28 persons were placed. After pushing off from the Hibernia we kept within sight of the other boats for four honrs, but then we lost them. We sailed about that day without any- thing occurring which promised relief. At night we lay to, and passed the long dark hours in sadness. Next morning we got under weigh, and endeavoured to make in the direction of the land. During this, the second day, strong westerly breezes prevailed. For a few days afterwards we bad light airs and calms. Our sufferings on the second day were very great, and in the utter abandonment of hope two of the passengers jumped overboard, and were soon in the silence of death. Again day passed into the dreary night, and still we had no prospect of being picked up. The third morning dawned on our party spiritless and dejected. Our sickening despair was deepened in the course of the day by another of the passengers pre. ferring death to the agony of such a life by leaping over- board. The same dreary prospect continued, without the slightest ray of hope, on succeeding days. About the eighth day from our leaving the H ibemia one of the passengers, Samuel Hunter by name, succumbed to the privations which we endured, and on the following day two women, two children, and an infant were also re- leased by death from their sufferings., We afterwards drifted on under a fair wind. The sea, however, was heavy, and during the progress of the gale our boat was capsized. Sixteen of our party were drowned. The boat continued in this overturned posi- tion for four hours, and when she righted three of us- Blair, Reilly, and myself, who had managed to hold on —succeeded in getting into her. We drifted along without seeing any vessel until Sunday evening last, when one was sighted. We could not, however, make on her, and our feeble sigualings did not appear to be observed. About six o'clock on the same evening we made the Tory Light, off the coast of Ireland. We at- tempted to run in, but the night was dark, and in the gloom we found ourselves amongst the breakers. We then ran out again as best we could, and lay to for eight hours. At daylight on Monday morning we again en- deavoured to land, and succeeded in running into Mulroy Bay. We were very much exhausted through exposure and the want of food, for we had lost every- thing when the boat capsized. We are still very weak, and our legs, faet, and hands are much swollen. We met with great kindness at the hands of the people on the Irish coast." Tory Light, which the forlorn party sighted on Sun- day evening, is an islet near the northern extremity of the Irish coast, while Mulroy Bay, where they succeeded i' .u!1_- --LI. -1- n' in naroounng, is a lew mues rurtner norm. 1 ue uay is a deep sinuous inlet, situated between Sheephaven Bay and Lough Swilly, and is about twelve miles in length, and of an averag- breadth of one mile. Mr Davies, it will be observed, confirms the statement of there being 28 persons A1 board No. 3 lifeboat when she left the Hibernia, and we gather from his sad story that the number was reduced to three by three passengers leap- ing overboard, the death of six others, and the drowniug of sixteen—twenty-five in all. one of the passengers saved from the Hibernia, Mr Patrick Brewster, nephew of the late Sir David Brew- ster, died at the house of his brothel, Dewar-place, Edinburgh, on the morning of the 10th inst.

RUSSIA. The Army and Navy Gazette says" We are glad to be able to state that the Russian army is at present very badly prepared for a European war even of the Im- perial Guard only a portion is armed with rifle breech- loaders." HUNGARY. The Hungarian Diet was closed on Thursday. The speech from the throne enumerated the good results which have attended the labours of the Diet, and which it says are due to the sincere union existing between the King and the nation. It adds—" The Diet has put an end to the uncertainty hitherto prevailing. Both, halves of the empire are independent of each other as regards the conduct of their own affairs, and they exer. cise an equal constitutional influence over the affairs which are common to both. The monarchy has sought and found a rallying point within itself, and now mar- ches onward with renewed strength in a path which will conduce to the peace and welfare of the country, and to its preservation of the position which it is called upon to take up among European nations. The King nourishes the conviction that the new constitutional bases which have already effected so much good, and so greatly strengthened the monarchy, will be durable and beneficial to the interests of the country." The speech was, it is stated, received with great enthusiasm.
THE POLITICAL STATE OF ABYSSINIA. The political condition of Abyssinia at the end of October is described in the following letter Since the destruction of the rule of Theodore a number of petty chiefs have risen in rebellion against the rebels who gave the late King of Abyssinia so much trouble at the close of his career. Menilek, the King of Sboa, still holds his own, and is quite content with what he has, provided his rivals, Wagshuom Gobazay and Ras Mashusha, the eldest eon of Theodore, do not increase in power and threaten to dispossess him. This young man also pretends to be descended from Solomon, and styles himself in his letters King of Kings of Ethio- pia but hitherto be has only shown his importance to his courtiers and his numerous wives, for, although his assistance has been asked by Warkait, the Queen of the Gallas, to defend her against her deadly enemy Masteat, her rival, he dare not descend to the Walloo Galla plain, for fear of a warm reception from his Mohamme- dan foes. Gujjam is split in two factions, in consequence of Tadla Gwaloo having left two sons of different mothers in the government of the country. Of course the elder brother, who has possession of the Amba, is more able to keep his brother in check, but the other having the bulk of the army with him, lives on the fat of the land, and defies his elder brother to come out. Has Mashusha, the eldest son of Theodore, who made his escape to Amara Sant with his father's remain- ing adherents the day Magdala was taken, though it was reported that Theodore was so hemmed in on that day by the brave Walloo Gallas that he could not have escaped, now governs Kwara and Agsmador, and the two districts have supplied him with no less than M.0!I0 fighting men. The people of Vugmadar, already dis- gusted with the rule of Wagshoom Gobazay, have sent to the heir of Theodore their submission, and promised to supply him with 10,000 men more if he would try to keep Wagshoom from entering the Amhara country. This young chieftain has two unimportant enemies in his vicinity whom he wants to get rid of before he would carry the war on a large scale they are Amara Ilailoo, one of Theodore's chiefs of Magdala, and Gal- moo, a Kamant chief, who was a kind of prisoner with the late king. The former governs Chulga and Gondar, and the latter has managed to collect a few hundred soldiers who had served Theodore from the districts of Achafhr, Wandagaz, and Dambea, and with these few men he thiuks he will manage to keep these districts. It is reported that Galmoo iutends to submit to Has Mashusha, and if Hailoo does not gain power, he will have either to submit to the son of his late master, or run for his life. Ras Mashusha vows vengeance against his father's late European artisans, for having de-erted their late maser just at the time when they ought to have given him their best advice. The King had given them gold saddles to ri,l,: til,on, he says, honoured them above the nobles of his land, and supplied them with ample funds to send home, aud yet when his adverse hour came, they went away with the riches which they had accumulated for years without saying to him, May God give it back to you.' These are the words of the young chieftain, and they bode.il] for European travellers who intend to visit his laud. "Faris Ali, the hereditary chief of Yajoo, who was one of the political prisoners at Magdala when Theodore died, made his escape to his native district on the 15th of April, without seeing Sir Robert Napier, and called the people to arms against the rule of Wagshoom Goba- zay. Dajaj Mashosha, the uncle of the Wagshoom, who w as then assisting the Commander-in-Chief Aragaz below Magdala, in procuring stores for our troops, had to go in pursuit of Ali Faris to stop him from entering Yajoo. lie arrived there too late, as the wary chief travelled day and night, and by the time Dajaj Mashu. sha reached the place the fugitive had collected no fewer than five thousand warriors around him, with which he attacked his pursuer and took him prisoner. Our troops were then not more than one day's journey from the field of action, and no sooner did our troops leave Dalanta than a petty chief who had just sprung up in the neighbourhood of Geeshin, and had taken possession of that fortress, occupied the district and as our army moved towards the west, this chief followed its steps by inches, and by the time the whole force crossed the Tauzay river, had taken possession of Wa- dala. Magdala itself is now in the hands of Masteat, but it is reported she has sent overtures of peace to Has Mashusha, Theodore's heir, and promised him the for. tress and the customary tribute, provided he would enter into offensive and defensive alliance with her against her rival and the Shoa people. Wagshoom Gobazay, who has teen taking a little rest at home during the rainy season, has now gone forth, intending, firstly, to subdue the Amhara country and seize young Mashusha, the son of his hereditary enemy, Theodore, and then return to Tigre and make his vassal, Dajaj Kassa, give an account of the presents he had obtained from Sir Robert Napier. Poor Kassa has also had more than his share of trouble since the British troops left the country. Dajaj Wald Yosis, who proved somewhat troublesome to Sir Robert Napier's expedition near Wajarat, is now in open rebellion against Dajaj Kassa, and another chief, named Kabit Galja, who rules the country between Senafee and the Tauzay, has also declared his independence, and sent to the Wagshoom to come and turn the rbe\ Kassa out of Tigre. Report says that Kassa has now nothing left but Adwa and a few villages in its neigh- bourhood and if one great chief, either Wagshoom Gobazay or Ras Mashusha, does not succeed in ridding the country of these numberless petty chiefs, whose only object is to destroy, it will not be safe to travel in Abyssinia at all soon. For the present the Wagshoom is the most powerful; but if Ras Mashusha only gains one important battle, all his father's veteran soldiers will join him, and with Theodore's prestige, he will sweep everything before him."
THE ABYSSINTAN WAR.—When Parliament met in November, 1S07, it was to authorise the war against the King of Abyssinia, to lay on Id incine tax, and draw £ 'J(iO,O0y out of the Exchequer balances. The Iudian revenues were charged with the pay of the Indian troops and shipping, and we carried on the war on very moderate terms, though it cost us much. It may be fairly said that so difficult an expedition was never plan- ned in recent ages by any government, and that the complete success and very decisive triumph of our arms whilst they reflected no credit on military departments at home, which had no control of affairs-do very much redound to the honour of the ministry, which had the sagacity and firmness to discern the right way of going to work, and that Lord Derby and Mr Disraeli may fairly arrogate to themselves the praise which is due to a unique enterprise which has enhanced the reputation of our arlll alike among civilised nations and the most barbarous tribes of the world. May those who succeed them itwiffice be as successful in all they undertake for the honour and greatness of our country !-Army and Navy Gazette.
