BRYNGWRAN. SEASONABLE BENKVOLKNCK.—K. Roberts, Esq., Liver- pool, has seut to the rector of Llechylched andCeirehiug parishes, Anglesey, forty quarters of pounds of excellent tea for dwtritlutiou amongst that uuwoer of the aged and infirm poor of the above-named parishes. The same was distributed amoagst the grateful recipients by means of tickets previously is-ued to the most deserving ubjscis during the present week, by the Rev. E. Davies, curate. This is an annual Christmas gift to tl.e poor of these pirishes from the above-uained respected gentleman, besides the very liberal support he regularly extends to the school, clothing clubs, &c., of the district, since he has become the proprietor of Piaa Llechylohed, where he is carrying ou considerable improvements.
CORWEN. I SAD ACCIDBHT.—Mr John Jones, a guard in the em- ploy of tne Great Western Hallway Compauy, and who was resident in Corwen, and gave great satisfaction by his steadiness and uniform civility, was accidentally killed at liuabou Station ou Wednesday morning, whilst a luggage train was shunting. The melancholy news spread a gloom over the town, especially over the ent- ployees of the company. l'E:oINï KKAMNUS —A new course of entertainments for the people commenced on Thtirsday,, 19til iiistatit. The meeting was held in the National School, aud tLe adaptability of the uew rowul was fully appreciated by the very numerous audience. The liev. t% Kicharuson, the worthy rector, occupied the chair, and was supported by the Hon. C. H. Wyuu, Ur Walker, 0. Davies Hughes, Ksij., and Ur Jones. Mr S. F. Lougstaffe re- cited a highly humorous prologue, iu which the local references caused considerable amusement; Mrs \V. 15. C. Jones and Mrs Brophy assisted at the pianoforte, and Souie excellent soug; aud dialoglw, were given. — On Tuesday last a further readiug was the chair beiuij ably taken by the lion. U. H. VVynn, supported by his brother the Hou. J. T. Wvnu, Dr Jones, flev. W. Hich. ardson, aud Air Massie Taylor. Mr Longstafte read Edgar l'oe's poem ou the Hells, and a I'Ugthy pro- gramme of music, songs aud dialogues was successfully carried out. It was stated that the proceeds of the sea- son would be giveu to clear the new town clock, which had cost with tittiug it up about £60, but only i.7 was now required after the proceeds of the last wiuter's penny readings aud the amateur concert, aud a libeial donation from the Fishing Association. Dr Jones is appointed treasurer, aud Mr Longstaffe honorary secretary.
HOLYHEAD. A REMARKABLE COINOIDECr;OIl Tuesday, the .2ith November last, in the parish of Rhoscolyu, Angle- sey, there happened a remarkable occurrence —vi' the funeral of two sisters without any previous arrange- ment having been made for both to be buried on the same day. The name of the eldest sister was Ann, who died at her own house, Tyrallt, at the age of 63. She was the mother of a large family, two of whom hold re- sponsible situations iu the London aud North-Western Railway Company's service. The name of the second sister was Elieu She was the wile of Captain John Jones, ship Furest King, of Liverpool, and owned by W. H. Owen, of 1'lasyn Penrhyu. )1rs Jones died on board the above-named ship on the 26th April last, at the Chincha Islands. It wa4 tlio deiire of the deceziseil to be taken home to be buried with her family, and her husbaud promised that her wish should be fullilled. Before sailing from the islands a funeral service was performed ou board, where a great many British ship- masters assembled, and the body was buried in the cargo (guano). The British chaplain officiating on the occasion issued a certificate of the interment, signed by himself and Captaiu Flett, ship Peruvian; Captain Hughes, ship Summerlee; and Captiiu NViliiauis, ilii 1, Royal Visitor. And so the good ship put to sea, rounded the stormy cape, over the Paeitic aad Soutli aud North Atlantic Oceans for a distauce of 15,000 miles, arrived at 1 huikirk, in France, where the cargo was discharged, and where the body was placed in a lead cotliu. From Duukirk the ship proceeded to the Meisey, where she arrived on the 22nd November; and now apperrs the coincidence. The funeral of the eldest sister was ar- ranged to take place on the 24th. On the arrival of Captain Jones in Liverpool he telegraphed to his frieuds to prepare a grave for his deceased wife by Tuesday, the 24th; that he intended leaving Liverpool that morning in time to be at Valley Station by one o'clock. On his arrival there he was met by a large concourse of people who were proceeding with the eldest sister's re- mains to the churchyard. The two funerals were joined and the mournful procession resumed its way to the rustic and ancient church of lihoscolyn. It was, as the reader may suppose, a sad aud mournful meeting of the two families after a long separation. Audso the dying wish of the deceased was fltlfilled -at last she was laid at rest with a beloved sister, in the quiet and peaceful churchyard of Khoscolyn. Thedeceasedsisters were children of John and Elizabeth James, whose married life extended over a period of G2 years. Mr Jauies was an officer in H.M.'s customs, from which he retired with a pension after an honourable service of fitty years.
HOLYWELL. The much-talked-of town clock, to be erected in hon- our of the coming of age of the heir of Talacre, is iu course of construction. The masonry is almost com- plete, and in a short time it is expected that the whole I will be fiuished.
TEEFJJKAETH. On Tues lay, the 18th instant, a literary and musical entertainment was held in the National Schoolroom of Trefdt-aeth and Llangadwaladr, under the uuited patron- age of the Rev. U. D. Owell, D.D., aud O.J. Owen, Esq., Trefeilir. The Kev. Nlr Gjiffitb, curate of Llau- gadwaladr, presided on the occasion. Prizes were awarded to the be-it singers, and readers of both the Welsh and KnglUh languages. The songs and choruses were comparatively good throughout, but most par- ticularly the choruses. Judging by the goodly number present, we believe the people of the locality rightly appreciate these sort of meetings, and it is greatly to be regretted that we have not got them )ftetier.-Cont.
Lord de Tabley will undertake the office of Controller of the Household, and the Earl of Carysfort will be a Lord in Waiting Lord Torringtun also remains in his Lord in NVaititig I old position at her Majesty's court. Hones are now entertained of the recovery of the Countess o £ Mount Edgcumbe. The Du!;eand L)uche.3s of Abercorn are still at Canues, aud will not returu to Ireland to take a formal farewell. The Solieiltirs' Journal understands that Lord Ha- therley, on behalf of the new government has addressed a letter to Lord Cairns, pressing him strongly to accept the vacant Lord Justiceship of Appeal in Chancery, aud representing that such an arrangement need not iu the slightest degree interfore with Lord Cairns presum- able hostility, in the House of Lords, to the policy of the government. In the event of his declining to re- turn to tbe Lord Justices' Court, the vacant seat would probably be filled by Vice-chancellor Gifi'ard. A shocking story comes from Hartlepool. It appears that a Mrs Charlton, a sailor's wife, put her two chil. dren, one aged three and tho other five years old, to bed on Thursday night, aud went out to make some purchases. She had uot been out long when a woman who occupied a part of the same house became sensible of the outbreak of fire. She gave an alarm, and a sailor who chanced to be passing, bravely rushed up. stairs, aud passing literally through the flallles, which rushed at him as he biirst the door of the room open, he tlok the two children from their bed and ran with them downstairs. Both children had been burned to death before the sailor reached them. He was also severely burned. A writer iu the Haiti) Ncws gives some aetaus or tnea- trical management. The expenses of a large first-class West-end theatre are estimated at from A:420 to f 480 a week. Asa rule the receipts are below the expenses; the loss is made up by some lucky hit, when they are largely in excess. Christmas is the best theatrical sea- son in the year summer is the worst, except when it is wet. About k,500 a year is spent on colours and canvas. The gas bill comes to £30 a week, but at Christmas the moon generally costs the manager X20 a week on its own account. One of the diliiuulties of a manager is getting actresses to play the part of women —they all want to show their legs (usually padded) as fairy princes, and so on. Ballet girls get about 25s a week, And the writer vouches for their morality. The tariff of dramatic authorship varies very much. Three or tive act plays, wlon not paid for by percentage on profits, usually cost from £2iJlI to IORTO, or from X3 to A:5 every night they are acted. The price of a good burlesque varies from jC50 to X120. Farces are seldom worth more than fit)."

THESE FORTY-SEVEN BRAVE QUARRYMEN. I SIRo-In the last impression of the North Wales Chronicle I find that Mr Jones-Parry proposes to enorave the mtnes of the forty-seven quarrymen who voted for him in the neighbourhood of Bethesda HIS words are, I had forty-seven votes at Betlits itt, the land of the Philistines. I propose engtaviug the names of these forty-seven brave quarrymen and frame them, and pi a e them in a room at Madryn. Well it had been had there been so ni-iny good men in Sodom, it would not have been burnt I shall never turn my coat, and if it wears out I shall go with- out one." Since the houourablo gentleman thinks so highly of those fortv-seven men, would it not seem more becoming on h 4 part to show his real regard for them by taking them in a mass, and employing them on the Madryn estate. We in Betlies,is can well afford to lose the whole forty-seven, and I am sure l ord Penrbyn can afford to part with them. If Mr Parry does something of this kind, and continues to give them easy work and good'wages, say, for twenty years, and if they then turn tneir coats and voto against him after such a substantial proof of his deep regard, he may with impunity catt them "brave qturrymen." Mr Parry says, even when speaking of these men, I shall never turn my coat." Now, thiiteen of these brave men had promised their votes to the Hon. Mr Pennant, but voted for Mr Parry; these have turn-d their coats, ergo, they are brave I?)' Should they not therefore go, as Mr Parry exprestet it. without a coat.—Yours truly, BARCELONA. I
Tlie Rectory of Keith Bramwell, near Donca-ster, has fallen to the gilt of Lord Dutferin, the new Chan- cellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, in consequence of the death of the Kev. F. Mayuard, M.A. It is worth about X520 a-year. As a London and North-western train was leaving EUgbuaton for Birmingham on Friday night, a man suddenly leaped into the guard's compartment, threw a quantity of naptha into his eyes, seized a box coufciining about £ 70, and made his escape. A man who has been fourteen years in the employment of the company is in custody; a sum of X27 has been found in his pos- session. While the fast train for Chesterfield was at full speed a few days ago, a passenger deliberately put a pistol out of a window and tired a bullet at the signal-man at Stoueyford, on the Midland Company's Erewash Val- ley Line. The bullet struck him on the breast, but fortunately only slightly injured him. Before attention culd be obtained at Chesterfield, the train had gone on to Leeds, so that no clue had been obtained of the of- fender. What can have been the motive for the outrage is utterly unkuown. Mr Hawkshaw's proposed new line from the Marble Arch to Cheapside would run entirely underground, and would cost about £ 1,400,000 for the distance of two luiles and three quartets. Mr Hawkshaw promises no disturbance to the traffic, and when the pavement has to be taken up, it is to be done between ten o'clock at night aud six u'clock in the morning. There are to be nine stations. PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S MESSAGE.—According to the Times, the American president's message exhibited the faults of his character in their worst forms. His being near the end of his term seems to have intensified his stuhbornuess and to have provoked him to fresh as- saults upon the Legislature. More than once he took occasion, though perfectly aware that no word he could say would recommend any proposal to those whom he addressed, to plunge into the most abstruse questions of financial legislation, and to propose a course of dealing with the public creditor which would scarcely differ from undisguised repudiation. As regards the disputes with Lnglaud, the Times believes the engagements will be ratified on our part, whatever Ministry may be in power in England. Whatever also, the changes at Washington, a new President and a renovated Senate may be trusted to recognize the limits of dignity and justice. A man named Nally was murdered at Marple Bridge, near Stockport, on Friday night. Nally and James il'Donnell, another navvy, and several Irishmen were drinking at the Qreyhound Inn, Marple Bridge. The whole of the party became excited with drink, and after a great many hard words and hard names had been used, Nally and M*Donn«ll began to fight, and M'Don- nell stabbed his antagonist with a pocket knife in the throat, severing the windpipe and jugular vein. The wounded man called for help, and medical assistance was sent for, but he died on his way to the residence of the nearest medical man, in less than a quarter of an hour. M'Donnell made no attempt at escape, and he was locked up all night in the village polioe cell. On Saturday morning he was conveyed to the Stockport New Bailey, and was brought up on Monday before the magistrates, and formally remanded to Thursday last. Four hundred men were imprisoned on Friday in the Holmes Colliery, near liotherham. About nine o'clock iu the morning, when the pit was in full work, the cage, containing several corves of coals, was, from some at pre-eut uuexplaiued cause, overdrawn, and one of the loaded corves fell down the shaft. The accident, it may well be conceived, caused great alarm both above and below. Those above set to work to repair the machinery, and when it was possible to descend the shaft it was found that the corve had stuck fast some 300 yards from the top, and that the framework ou the other side was much damaged. Communication was thus entirely out off with the four hundred men below, who, wearied, tired, and hungry, gathered about the bottom of the shaft in anxious suspense. It was nine o'clock in the evening before provisions could be passed to them, and all, it was expected, would not be liberated before Saturday morning. Upwards of forty persons were injured by an alarm- ing acideut which occurred on the Midland line, near Nottingham, on Saturday night. It appears that the Mansfield market train left Nottiugham at half-past eight o'clock, filled with passengers, and at a crossing near the latter town it came into collision with a train ot empties returning from Chesterfield, Piebridge, and other I ,laces. A fearful disaster was the conse- quence. Both engines were thrown off the line, with a large niimber of ta riagesi many of which were com- pletely smashed. The drivers and firemen, named re- spectively lii-acifoi d, Dufton, Gilbert, and Adams, re- ceived frightful injuries, and it is perfectly miraculous how they escaped with their lives. Many of the pas- sengers were also dreadfully bruised and shaken, and several have sustained broken arms and legs. It was with great difficulty that the passengers were removed from the damaged carriages, Many of them now lie in great suffering. A large gathering of the clergy of the diocese of Lon- don took place at Willis's Ruouis on Monday, for the purpose of presenting an address to the iiight Rev. the liisliop of the diocese, on his elevation to the Arch- bishopric of Canterbury. The address said:—" We desire to approach your lordship with our most cordial and respectful congratulations. We heartily pray that you may long and successfully discharge the arduous duties of the high office to which the providence of God has called you. We cannot but advert at the same time, with deep regret, to the great joss which both the clergy and the laity of the diocese of London will sus- tain in being deprived of your wise and energetic super- intendence. W e shall always bear in grateful remem- brance your unwearied efforts to provide for the spiri- tual wants of the diocese committed to your care, and we rejoice to know that under the Divine blessing, during the twelve years of your episcopate, no less a sum than t:347,483 has been paid or promised to the Bishop of London's Fund, no fewer than 130 churches have been built, and ]2i) distinct parishes formed within the diocese. We also dwell with satisfaction on the impulse you have given to efforts for the temporal as well as spiritual welfare of the working classes, by promoting habits of industry and forethought among them, by in- troducing comfort, health and cleanliness into their homes, by conciliating their affections, aud by extending among them, through personal intercourse, the influence of true religion." The address further stated, tVe contemplate with calmness the commotions which now agitate the Church. Our trust is iu the name of the Lord, and we have confidence in the stability of the ¡ truth. May God grant to your lordship, and to all the heads of our Church, a wisdom, energy, and courage adequate to every emergency."
At a meeting of Liverpool merchants held on Mon- day, Sir Charles Fox's scheme for constructing a railway from Liverpool to Birkenhead by means of a tunnel under the Meraey was approved of. The totil cost of the enterprise is estimated to amount to X446,000 but X20,000 only is the sum which it is proposed to raise in the first instance, and that will be expended upon the dnving of an experimental tunnel underneath the river bed. It is stated that satisfactory news from Havannah has been received by the Spanish Government. Six thou- sand men, however, have left Spain for Cuba, and it is officially stated that while the Government will treat the colonies with the utmost sympathy, and will make every proper concession to their rights and interests, it is de- termined, at the same time, to make every sacrifice to retain them. This does not look as if the news received were quite as satisfactory" as the public are asked to suppose. Tue news from Spain is that the elections have con- tinued without disorder, except in a few places, where the local authorities found themselves strong enough to restore quiet. The majority of the town councillors who have been elected, as well as the deputies to the Consti- tuent Assembly, are stated to be Liberals and friendly to the cause of constitutional monarchy. The Corres- pondencia publishes a letter from Florence announcing that Prince Cariguan is about to spend some time in Madrid, and that suitable apartments have already been retained for him. Mr J. S. Mill, writing from Avignon to one of his friends in town, assures him that in the event of a va. cancy in Westminster resulting from the petition agaiust Mr W. H. Smith, he has no wish again to offer himself for the seat. It was not," he says, from any per- sonal preference that I exchanged a more agreeable, aud I hope not less useful, mode of serving my opinions, for the position of a member of Parliament, and the return to my former occupation is so great a pleasure that it would require a clear case of public duty to induce me to quit them. I do not think such an obligation exists in the present case." We receive Mr J. Stuart Mill s explanation of his de- feat at Westminster through a letter which he has written in French to M. Esquiros, and which is pub- lished in the Revue den Deux Mondes. The causes as- signed for his defeat are superior organisation on the part of his opponents, abundance of money spent in the Conservative interest, and the disgust of the vestrymen at his proposition for reforuling the municipal institu- tions of London. Mr Mill consoles himself with the re- flection that he will exercise more influence as a writer than as a member of Parliament, in which reflection we perfectly coincide. The reported discovery of gold diggings in Suther- land, it appears, ought not to astonish us. A gentle- man, named Hector Mackay, tells us that it is well known to old people in a certain parish with which he is connected that gold was to be found there, and he gives the reason why the mines of the precious metal have not been worked. The explanation is that, according to report, from the time King Charles I created the great chief ofithe Mackays Lord Reay, with the pos- gession of the tract of land known as the Reay Coun- try," the family forbade any digging for gold or other metal in the place in which it was said to be found, for fear that the Crown would appropriate the land in ques- tion to itself. WILLS AND BEQUESTS.—The will of the Rev. Sir Nicholas Chinnery, Hart., M.A., was proved in Ireland, under zC120,000 personalty. Sir Nicholas had be- queathed the whole of his property to his daughter and only child, who perished with him iu that dreadful railway accident at Abergele, and stipulated that, should her children not live to attaiu vested interests in the property, the same should be divided amongst certain religious siwietiea.—The will of Mr John Harrison Ayl* mer, Esq., late of Walworth Castle, Durham, was proved in the court at Durham, under C12,000 person- alty, by the surviving executors, Sir John Jucelyn Cog- hill, Bart., and the Rev. John Davie Eade, M A., Hon. Canon of Durham and Vicar of Aycliffe, the testator's brother-in-law. The will is dated 1855, and the codicil I 1866. The testator, with his wife and eldest son and others of his family, perished in the Abergele railway accident. He had bequeathed to his said eldest son, on his attaining 21. all his Government and other securities. --Illustratefl London News. I The Emperor and Empress of the French recently paid a visit to the ex-Queen of Spain. Regardless of the Emperor's remonstrance, Isabella insisted on attending her illustrious visitors to their carriage door, when Eu. genie embraced her, with the expression my de:ir friend," in their own native Spanish. To these exalted ladies the present must suggest the past, when the Queen of Spain, a member of the proudest royal family in Europe, scarcely would have deigned to notice the pretty girl who rode about the lanes of Granada, and lived with her parents in a dull house in a very narrow street of that primitive town. At No. 9, Calle de las Graciia, years of the Empress's youth were passed, and in Spain, where blue blood" counts for more than gold the people talk of her mother, the beautiful daughter of a tradesman of Malaga, who married an impoverished noble, whose subsequent inheritance of great wealth stirred his friends to attempt the dissolution of this "unequal match." Any one may hear the story in Ma- laga, or see the house in Granada, but it is impossible for those not educated in the dying traditions of noble blood, as the ex-Queen has beeu from her cradle, to ap- preciate the sentiments which must have lurked some- where at this parting, perhaps ot triumph on one side where at this partiug, perhar ut to us the hearts of and regret on the other. But to ua the hearts of kings" are not open.

LONDON HOP MARKET.— MomvY. OUT trade has been unusually active of late, considering the the time of year, aud fair sales have been made of nearly every description of hops at rates which fully support, and in some instances exceed former quotations. Continental markets aro unchanged, and the imports into London still continue heavy, keeping prices effect-ally in check. New York advices to the Uth instant report a very dull market, but no alteration in prices, except where hops are much pre sed to sale.

LLANDUDNO. I FLAT IN DISTRE.SS,-On Monday last, a flat which was bound for Conway, was seen in the Conway channel to be in distress, as she had lost her masts, aud was drifting on the buks; the anchor was let go at once, and the crew went in the boat to Conway. As it was the day on which the Llaududno life-boat was to take her quarterly exercise, the boat was already equipped and ready for launching into the Llandudno bay but on receipt of the news of the flat by the coxswain, she was taken to the Conway shore and launched the wi lid was blowing fresh from S.W., and it was several hours before the life-boat reached the flat; and it-was theu only that they found that the crew had left, so they had about four hours hard labour for nothing. The flat was soon afterwards taken to Conway by a Conway crew.
LLANLLECHID. I SUNDAY SCFIOOLS.-The annual literary competitive meetings in connection with the Church was held last Saturday in the National Schoolroom. As iu previous years the meetings were very well attended, and the papers sent in were well written, and the reverend gentlemen who adjudicated thereon spoke highly of the papers which they looked over. The remarks of the adjudicator's were calculated to benefit the competitors and the aulience. The chair was taken by the worthy rector, the Ven. Archdeacon Evans, and the adjudi- cators were the Kevs. J), Thomas, St. Anns, Rural Deau Mr Jones, curate, St. Ann's Mr Jenkins, lilan. ogwen; Mr l'arry, Llaullechid Mr IIughes, Carnar- von Mrs Evans, and Miss A.

An Expentuc Partridge: Samuel "Wright was charged by Air John Higgins, Supervisor of Iuiatid Revenue, with killing game without a license on the 15th September last. The case was proved by Robert Williams, guuekeeper to Mr J. Wynne Eaton, who said that on the day in question the defendant ghot a partridge near Pontblyddyu, for which he was convicted before the magistrates ou the 25tli of the same month, when he was tined t:2 and costs. For the pre- Beut offence he WaS fined jC5 xud costs. Mr Wiggins said he would not press for costs, I he money was paid.-Doys Mr Higgius charged the following persons with keeping dogs without licences Richard Thomas, of Coed Talon, whose house Mr Andrews, the excise officer of the district, visited on the'7th of October, when defendant's wife shewed him two dogs which she kept iu the cupboard. Two days subsequently defend- ant obtained a license of Mr Potter at IVi,exhaiu.-De- fendant said he had lost the license he had taken out in July. In this case a question arose as to a transfer of the liueuse in case a dog should be yiveuaway during j the year,—Mr Higgius said the licence so transferred would not do-the person wa licensed and not the dog. A new licence was required by the person who had the dog. Fined £1 5s.—Johu Savage, of New-street, Mold, whost' lwuse was visited on the 4th of ovemler by Mr Andrew, who found a dog there.

Thomas had on that day gone toW rexhim tu receive his pension, aud his wife, Sarah Tnotnas, borrowed the money of her neighbouis and paid it. It was proved that XI 7s was the amount defeudaut could claim, aud he had therefore been paid £1 138 in ex- cess.—H is defence was that he was a elerk to Nir Allen, and was acting uuder his iusu-uotions.—Mr Alleu deuied all knowledge of the trausa-tion, until he saw the X3 paid to his clerk at the otlioe, and then he did not know what it was for.

RUOSCOLYN, NEAR HOLYHEAD. In our obituary of the 12th inst. we had the mournful duty of an:.ouncing the death of tlie Kev. John u illiams, Hector of Ruoscolyn, which tuok place on the 6th inst. Mv \S illbms was 8 Ilativc of Llallgeitho, In CJ\r,Ji¡; HI born about the year 16A<. From his youth he was very affectionate, kind hearted, and cheerful. While he was student at the Yatrudineuric Grammar School, he is reported by a co-student of his as follows Mr John Williams was a grea'. favourite of us ttoU-he was kind to all and t-sieouitd by all. our tutors were out of tho 1 rooms Mr Williams would indulge u? with a short address. One day he cahed lor a bibJe, in order to read us a text for his a' 1 dress, one of us reached him a testament. This wiil not do, if you pleziio, said lie.

RUTHIN. The mayor, Dr Jenkins, gave a sumptuous banquet at the White Liou, on Tuesday laat to the oorporatiou and his numerous friends. We hold our report over for weighty reasons until next week.

CornWiiliis West, Itiitiiin Citstle, were enterttilic I at a sumptuous banquet at the White Liou Hutel on Thursday List week, immediately alter the conclusion of the audit by the agents of the estate. Capt. West presided at the festivity. There were about one hun- tired guests present, and a pleasant eveuing was spent. PROPOSED ALTERATION OF FAIRS.—We have reason to ktiow ttiat the iltilicovemeiit, so kindly brought before public notice by Capt. West, at Ruthin, on Thursday, with respect to the fairs of the town, and so frankly supported by Mr Jenkins, wiil meet with v-3ry geneva* approval. Many people of influence have expressed a strong wish that the monthly fairs here should be held ou the Tuesday only. They urge the t. ulh that is patent to everyone who has business in the town, that as at present coustituted the fairs are dwind- ling to nothing very Lht, and they show good reasons for their couvictiou that if the alteration could be speedily etlected-say by the first month of the new year—it would be very beneficial to the town. One day, in this instance, Muuday, is occupied by the great Eughsh dealers in getting down into IVales from the cential parts of Eugland, so that it is an impossibility almost for them to get there in time and, besides the saviug ^of a day to the farmers, which Mr Jenkins spe- cially pointed out, it must be remembered it does not i pay any tradesman to waste two days' time in one day's business. It is hoped the local authority will at once ad^pt the necessary steps for carrying out the proposed alteration.—Carnarvon Herald.
TEEAlADOC. AMATEUR COUIISINO.—Tiirmigli the kind permission of oweit Gi-ithtli, Esq., Cefusuob, a few gentlemen en- joyed a first-iiite day's coursing on his estate last week.

An entrance fee of twopence was taken at the door, pursuant to an order of the Corporation. The grocers were not behind hand in supplying customers with all necessary ingreiients for the delicacies of this festive season. The shops of Messrs Morgan and Daniel Williams we particularly noticed, with regard to the foimer we may sty that be had the finest display of preserved fruit suitable for the Christmas Beason; grapes, walnuts, cocoa-nuts, chesnuta, etc were in iroiuslon. Ho also had a tine collection of French bonbons, etc., suitable for decorating Christmas Tiees, alld like- wise for Christmas presents.

To com- plete the Christmas cheer, we may observe that the window con- tilije(I wiaes, spirib and liqueurs well calculated to gladden t'a heart of even the most lethargetic man in even less festive times than the present. In fact, the windows of the whole of this most necessary tra4te were replete with every description of fruit, and at cheap rates, which we hope will enable ad classes to enjoy a happy Christmas. This week, Mr Mctienry, the gardener of P. li* Chambres, Esq., of Llysmerohion, has been engaged in removing with their roots entire, two old and large ornamental red blooming hawthorn trees, which were growing on a piece of laud in Vale-street, the removal of which was attended with considerable difficulty, but under the able and skilful superintendence of Mr MoHenry it has been successfully accomplished, and little doubt they will grow aud add more beauty to the grounds they are now planted in.
The American Congress has adjourned till the 5th of January. The Cheyeuue Indians are suing for peace. The health of the Maiquis de Moustier has become worse. Petitions are lodged against the return both of Viscouut Milton and Mr Beauuiont for the South-West Riding. Mr Berkeley writes to a Bristol paper as follows:— The notice which Sir Henry Lyttou Bulwer has placed ou the books of the House of Commons on the subject of the ballot in no way aflect,3 my annual mo- tiou, and is petfectly iu accordance with my view." The France say there is no truth in certain disquiet- ing rumours which have been afloat respecting the a ti- tude of Ii muiauia. The same journal re-athrtus that the relatioLS between the Cabinet of St. Petersburg at.d the Tuileries are satisfactory. The authorities at the Chatham convict establishment have had to resort to the cat to repress an iucipieut iliti- tiny. Some few years ago a convict rebellion at Chat- ham became so serious that it had to be put down by military force. On the present occasion a number of men have had three dozen lashes a-piece, and in addition they will forfeit all the privileges they may have ob- tained in the prison, aud will not be eligible to have any part of their senteuce remitted. The prompt and deci- sive measures resorted to have, it is stated, been quite successful, CONFESSION OF THE WELLS MDKDERER.—Bisgrov#, who was cbnvicted of murder at the Taunton Assizes on Tuesday, has made a coufession. After his condemna- tion he requested that an Independent minister might attend him. Mr Oakley, the governor, acceded to this I req uest, and a reverend gentleman at once went t,) the gaol. Bisgrove, after having been engaged in prayer, said that on the night in question being quite iutoxi- cated, he lay down near Coruish. He awoke, and he had an impulse—not from any feeliug of revenge or with any intention of robbing—to kill the man. lie got up iu a semi-drunken state aid went to the brook, and there took up a stone. He carried it to the spot where Cornish was lying, and threw the stone upon his head, and that blow killed Cornish. No one was with him. Having made this statement, be appeared com- fortable. This now shows that the evidence of the woman Drew was substantially correct, although at the time it appeared most improbable, and all the circum- stances led to a supposition that Sweet was the mur- derer.

REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE DURING THE PAST WEEK. The temperature of the past week has continued mild, but the weather very stormy, with much rain, so that the lands in low places have again been flooded. There is now no further need of moisture for the "elli and ponds, and the effects of tho pasts drought are effaced. Vegetation has conlinued,to make progress, and market-gardeners send fair supplies; but pota- toes do not improve in quality and are going fast, so that the surplus wheat of the pist season is certain to be wanted. The general opinion now seems in favour of this view, and our prices on the eve of Christmas have generally advanced about 2s per qr, with more doing than for some time past, the fears of a fur- ther decline lately keeping jverybody unusually low in stock. The average having already sunk to 4!)s sd, while barley in some places has been making .r>,>s, and has again risen this week Is per qr, it will be marvellous if its use for malting purposes should continue to be overlooked, when it is known to possess higher sacharine qualities, especially with such a quality as this season's. There is, indeed, agoodpro.spect on the ground as r\:gard plc\nt but who can reckon on a summer, as the past ? and, indceo, on the whole, it can scarcely he considered desirable. As to the influence of polit cs on prices we aro glad to see Spain righting hergef at Cadiz and elsewhere; but the Greeks again seem pushing their war-horse into Troy or Turkey, aud the Eastern question seems drifting Europe into trouble. The Cretans were false, and the Athenians fmsy-bodies; but if their successors i severally exhibit these qualities, it see i.s no reason for disturb- ling the. peace of the wocid. The whoat trade iu Fraace haa con- tinned dtttl—tiadeed, duller than anywhere else, though Belgium somewhat participates iu this ap^th n Gc-nufy thero are a f.jw symptoms of reaction, both llambro' HI d Lantzic quoting rat .cr hi. her rates and Canada is also li-mer, and tiioiuh it appear, they h a'o » stick of 3.»7,ot)> qr., whe.it to^s *eaio:i at isekv York, agaiust ;5U,oOO qrs last year, tliere is very little change i. the raws while tl.e k akes nave sent their last quota- tion for this «i;,tt.r, and our iiiost rew.,t advices are al,tio.,L cer. tain to raise the present rates beyond what will pay to export.
