THE WEI.SU UNIVERSITY COLIXGE.—At a meeting! (if tile constituents of the Aberystwith Univer.-ity College, held on Wednesday, the Kith instant, Mr A. .1. Brereton, of Mold, Andreas o Yon, was elected one of the governors in recognition of his kindness in re- I ference to the Brereton Scholarship. Theelection was a wen-merited compliment to a prominent and imblic-spirited Welshman, and we have 110 doubt that Mr Brereton's business qualifications and "hrewd common 1Ile will be of great \Idl1!lle to the insti-1 tutioll. [ I MODEHN* GEoIiRAPHY,I'IJè other day, in one of the Parish of Mold Elementary Schools, the master was instructing the boys of the second standard ill geography, and ill order to sbow them the theory of evaporation and its consequences, he asked, Where do the rivers go to answer. "To the sea." "Where do the seas go to?" answer, by only a few of the boys, To) the )ceaii, ;ir. Oil (le:tr iiit?, ttld wliere (lo the oceans go to ?" A long silence followed this ques- tion, until at last a little urchin cried out, The sailors turn it olf, sir." We need not say that the ,c,tteebi.iii was continued no further. THE LOCAL GUARDIANS met on Wednesday, Mr j K. P. Jones in the ehair, the other guardians being Messrs. J. l-orbett, Edward Jones, and William Grif- fitlis. The list wa-s unusually heavy, but very few •cases of interest cropped up. But, we ought to say that the Guardians expressed again their determina- i tion to stop the relief of all children who did not at- j tend school, one or two such cases coming before them. In one or two instances the case of paupers liaving children in good position but neglecting to maintain their parents were considered. In one the Telief was stopped on that account, that course being -preferable to bringing the parties before the magis- trates. If she again applies for relief the house test will be enforced, and the sons compelled to contribute j to her maintenance in the workhouse. THE Rour. SANITAUY COMMITTEE met immelliately after the meeting of guardians, Mr J. Astbury in the chair, the other members being the guardians. Air E. W. Jones attended, and read his usual report, in which he stated lie had visited a number of places in the district, and pointed out several nuisances requir- ing remedy. From Connah's Quay he had to report the outbreak of typhus fever, there being three cases— one near the Red Hall, and two near Wepre Hall Lodge. The only cause to which the outbreak could be attributed was an open gutter running from the Ship Inn to Wepre Lodge. Two months ago he had this drain thoroughly cleaned out, and many tons of I solid matter removed, but it now looked as filthy as ever, and it was utterly impossible to remedy it until a thorough and effectual system of drainage is pro- vided.—The Committee could not see what further could be done at Connah's Quay, pending the drainage of the place, which was objected to by the Town Council of Chester. PETTY SESSIONS, MONDAY. lief ore J. Scott, liankes, A. F. Jones, Col. Cooke, H. J. Potts, and E. Thompson, Esqrs. Assault*. — Elizabeth Rowlands alias Conlan was charged with assaulting Catherine Cummings, and was fined 10s and costs, or seven days in default.— Moses Price, Lane End, Buckley, was charged by Wm. Campbell, shopkeeper, for whom Mr Cart- wright appeared, for assaulting him.—Mr Cartwright said that the defendant came up to Mr Campbell and said that Astbury, one of his tenants, had gone to America, and if he (complainant) did not put in a distress on Monday morning he would get nothing. A man named Edwards then came up, against whom defendant ran, hitting him, and then went away. The defendant then picked up the end of a brick, which he threw at complainant, who put up his hand. The brick end hit the end of his finger, hurting it seriously, it then glanced on his breast, hurting him. Air Cartwright called Campbell, Mr Walmsby, and Edward Edwards, who corroborated the opening statement.—The defendant said he was the injured party. He admitted picking up the brick to hit: Edwards, but he never intended hitting Campbell.— j The defendant was fined 40s and 12s (iLl josts, or 21 days in default. Drunkenness.—Thomas Hewitt, drunk at Buckley, j fined 7s fid costs or seven days.—Thomas C'hallinor, drunk and riotous at Lees wood, 10s and costs, or seven days.—George Lee, 7s Gd and costs. Game Cases.— Robert Rogers and Thomas Jones, both of Alold, were charged by Air Robert Jones, of Sarngaled, with being, in company with Robert Powell, Sunday ferreting. Complainant went up to them, and they asked him to forgive them, but he refused, especially as it was Sunday. Two previous convictions were proved against Jones, and Air D.C.C. Adams said Rogers was one of a gang of poachers. Jones was fined 40s and costs, or twenty-one days im- prisonment, and Rogers 20s or fourteen days,- \Vm. Griffiths, John Roberts, and Jonathan Williams, for whom Mr H. G. Roberts appeared, were charged by Thomas Rushforth, gamekeeper to Colonel Cooke, for whom Mr Roper appeared, with trespassing in search of game on fields in the occupation of the representa- tives of the late John Williams. The complainant said he saw the defendants there, and asked what they wanted. They answered that they were looking after what they could find, and that a Mr Edward Lloyd had gi ven them permission. He searched them, and on the person of William Griffiths he found a warm: partridge. The defence was that the defendants were on the land, not of the representatives of John Wil- liams, but of William Jannion Jones, whose tenant1 was Air Edward Lloyd, and the shooting on which had not been reserved, and the right of shooting, therefore, lay in the tenant. The question then was as to whose land the defendants were on, and Air John Lloyd, Ty'nycaeau, wascalled, and sairl defendants were on Williams' land, and Air Lloyd, the tenant, had told 1 him he had not given the defendants permission to shoot when they were found.—Air Edward Lloyd, tenant, was then called, and said the agreement under which he held the Williams' land was a verbal one. He had gi ven them permission to go on the Jones' land, but told them to keep off the Williams' land, and he shewed them the boundaries.—On behalf of the defendants, it was urged that they one and all believed they were on Mr Janion Jones' land. The Chairman said the Bench did not think the offence a serious one, but when they were told by the keeper they should have gone off the land. They would be filled Is each and costs.—Colonel Cooke did not act in this case. School Board Cn-<s.—The following fines and orders were made—Henry Budgett, neglecting to send his children to school, os Henry Reeves, Buckley, order made Thomas Antrobus, Buckley, order made Evan Ellis, Pentre, order made John Parry, Gwerny- inynydd, order. Weight* and Measures. Alargaret .Jones, shop- keeper, Coed Talon, was charged by Mr D.C.C. ■ Adams, with having a pair of scales half an oncel against the purchaser, and another scale two drachms against the purchaser. He believed it was a case of inattention. Ordered to pay 3s cost, -I.,try Bellis, Alill-Lane, Buckley, having a pair of flour scales three quarters of an ounce against the purchaser. He im-1 ported no intentional fault. Ordered to pay 3s costs. BRYMBO AND BROUGHTON. AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY.—The annual meeting of the Bryinbo and Broughton Auxiliary of the. British and Foreigh Bible Society was held on Alon- day, in the Brake Wesleyan Chapel, AIoss, under the j presidency of Air C. E. Darby. The meeting havin commenced by singing and prayer, the President, in the course of a most earnest address, stated that it afforded him considerable pleasure to meet them on the consideration of such an important society, which had made much progress during the year, and had re- ceived a large amount of support in the country during the past year, notwithstanding the depression in trade, a fact in which all Christians should feel intere.ste(I.-Tlie Secretary (Air M. D. Jones) then read the annual report and statement, with the officers and committee for the ensuing year, to be adopted by the meeting. From the statement it appears that the income for the past year had been £4!J, and that £-14 had been remitted to the parent, society, making a total of £ 1,501 10s 8d remitted to the parent society since the inauguration of the auxiliary. The depository's statement showed that during the year 47 Bibles, 141 Testaments, and 20 portions had been sold, and that the total number sold by the auxiliary amounted to 2373 Bibles, 4130 Testaments, and 76 portions.—The Rev. John Roberts, Bryn Zion, moved the adoption of the report and the election of the officers and committee for the ensuing year, which was seconded by the Rev. Josiah Jones, Machynlleth, the deputation from the Parent Society, who gave a most interesting account of the operations of the so- ciety.—The Rev. J. Smallwood, Cymmau, moved a vote of thanks to the officers and committee, which Mr Ault seconded.—The Hev. Josiah Jones proposed a vote of thanks to the Chairman and to the Trustees of the chapel, which was seconded by the Rev. W. Williams, Moriah Chapel.—A collection was made in aid of the funds, which amounted to kl 18q, and the meeting was closed with the Benediction. 1 HEft £ N'TATIO.N TO MR TlIOMAS MORGAN".—On rriuay week, an interesting ceremony took place in the -National School, in the presentation of an illuini-1 nated address and a purse of gold to Air Thomas [ Morgan, chief accountant and cashier to the Bryiiibo Company, which company lie has been connected with for upwards of 31 year. As soon as it became known that Mr Morgan was leaving the neighbourhood, aj strong desire wa.- manifested to present him with some token of the reslc-et and esteem in which he was, held by a wide circle of friends, Air Morgan having by his fidelity and genial manners endeared himself to all with whom he has been brought into contact, a committee was formed of which Dr. Pryse was chair- man, and Air W. Hanson secretary. Owing to the illness and death c f the latter, the duties of secretary subsequently devolved upon Air Giles. The appeal of the committee was liberally responded to, and soon a handsome sum was subscribed, the Bryinbo Company subscribing and it was decided to pre- tent Air Morgan with a purse of gold and an illuini- ni'.ted address, handsomely framed and beautifully ill* ruinated and engrossed by Air Ault. The Rev.W. j JotMa, vicar of Brymbo, presided at the presentation, and -Iai(i he had been intimately acquainted with Air Morgan for upward s of and had been on most fr;endly terms with him. He was glad to find that the people of the district had appreciated the valuable services of Mr Alorgan. The Chairman then called upon Dr. O. T. Kwuis to make the pre- sentation, ii,lif) in doing so said they had met uitdcr two diametrically-opposed feelings, which he would explain by tin- words sadness and gladness. First there had been a deep gloom, which from the com- mencement OIK- and all had felt, and were it possible for him to have been spared, he would have been the one who would have taken the most active part—he alluded to the (leitli of Air Hanson. Secondly, they had met to bid farewell to one who had been so long connected with the neighbourhood and district, extending over 34 years, and when they thought that the tie was about to he severed—he did. not mean the tie of friendship, Villi the ties of active work—this must to Mr Mohan's feelings he a greater pang than he could fully express. But, oil the other hand, it must be pleasing to Mr Morgan to see that the gernig and seed he sowed had now reached a harvest, and the principles inculcated by such a long residence had not been overlooked or gone unre- warded, and when Air Alorgan left Brymbo he would still renin.in in the hearts of his friends. He would also say a few words of respect for one who to Mr Alorgaii during the anxieties and troubles of life had been his right hand, and he had no doubt been both a comforter and a willing partner. He alluded to Mrs Morgan, and lie wished them, on behalf of all, in their new sphere of action, long life and prosperity. He then presented the purse (containing 131 sovs.) and the address, which was most happily worded. —Mr Alorgan said that he could not find words adequately to express the kindness he had ex- perienced from them, and the magnanimity they had shown him by coupling with the a purse of gold. His feelings were so overcome that he could not find utterance, but begged most sincerely to tha.nk the friends he had made in the Principality for the kind present they had made him.—A vote of thanks to the Chairman terminated the proceedings. COEDPOETH AND MINER A. Anwy CHAPEL. The reconstruction of the in- ternal arrangements nfthi" chapel is nearly completed, and the outside work has just been Hnished except the roofing ant1 plastering. The work of rennovation will cost over £ 1,01)0. CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETT.On Wednesday evening week, the usual quartedy meeting- of the members of the above society was held at the society's premises, Oobden Place, Coedpoeth. The chair was occupied by Air. Gibbons, the president of the society. The re- port of the committee for the quarter showed that goods to the value of £ 359 IGs lid had been sold, realising a profit of £ 1312s 4d. It was decided that the same be appropriated, £2 3s 4d interest on capital, and the remainder a dividend on members' purchases, at the rate of one shilling and one penny in the k. The following members were elected on the committee for the ensuing six months Messrs. John Evans, Talwrn Thomas Williams, Talwrn Rotd Robert Jones, Nant; and John Evans, leadwaslier. Mr T. E. Hughes was also elected to fill up a vacancy. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to Air. Gibbons for his valuable services as chairman of the meeting and also as president during the quarter, and strong hopes were expressed that he would continue his highly appreciated services in the future. ADWY AND AIINERA AUXILIARY OF THE BIBLE SOCIETY.—The annual meeting of this branch of the parent society was held on Wednesday evening at the Wesleyan Chapel, under the presidency of Mr G. Osborne Morgan, Q.C., M.P. The meeting was com- menced by reading and prayer, then the chairman called upon Mr Joseph Wilcoxon, the local secretary, to read the account for the year. The report showed that the collections and sale of books during the ye:Lr amounted to £38 Gs 7id, which showed a decrease of several pounds to what the amount used to be in previous years. We must, however, congratulate the collectors for their zeal in doing so well, when we cons ider the great depression of trade that has reigned in the neighbour- hood during the year. After the report the honorable chairman delivered a lengthy address upon the work of the society in our own count y, and in Italy, Spain, and other foreign countries. He said that he himself had visited these countries and could testify to the influence of the Society there. The chairman after- wards called upon the Rev. J. Jones, Machynlleth, the deputation, to address the meeting and he gave a brief and interesting account of the present position of the society and work done during the year. Ad- dresses were also delivered in support of the society by the Revs. J. Hughes, J. Pickering, R. Roberts, Wern, H. Hughes, Adwy, and Air Lester. A hearty vote of thanks was given to the chairman for presiding and also to the Rev. J. Jones, the deputation. CEFN AND RHOSYMEDRE.

FRIDAY WEEK.— Before the Mayor (Alderman Thomas Gee), and Thomas Evans, Esq. Chariic of Stealing Lead.— Evan Morris, a young man who had been working for Mr William Simon, plumber, &c., was charged with stealing 231b of lead from his employer. Mr Davies, solicitor, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr R. H. Roberts for the de- fence. Mr W. S imon said that on Wednesday he was in his shop and saw the prisoner there cutting some glass. Gave him some orders and then went out. In a few minutes witness was in Crown-square, and saw prisoner come across with a bass on his back. Went to him and asked where lie was going. He replied that he was going for a pliers, and was going to do a job at Air Isaac Williams. He took the bass off him. It contained two pieces of lead rolled up, which weighed 231b.-Alr R. H. Roberts cross-examined Mr Simon at great length, the effect of which was that though lie fully believed that the lead he had taken from the prisoner was his, yet lie could not positively swear to it. He had some 7cwt or 8cwt of it, and this he believed had been cut from some of that.—P.S. Lewis and P.C. Wynne having given evidence, the Bench agreed that though there were suspicious cir- cumstances about it, yet the case had not been made out, and must be dismissed. Mr Simon's evidence was very creditable to him, and the Mayor hoped it would act as a warning to all young people to be care- ful of their employers' goods, and have a good title to anything they may become possessed of. School Board Cases.—Richard Budgeon, g:isworks, David Lloyd, John Hughes, Graig-terrace, G. W. Roberts, T. Jones, Henllan-street, W. Hughes, Rose- mary-lane, John Jones, Vale-street, Fred. Robinson, Wm. Williams, Beacon's-hill, Wm. Jones, Beacon's- hill, and Ann Jones, Henllan-street, were all sum- moned for not sending their children to school. Out of 2426 possible attendances in the aggregate these 13 children had only made 714. One of the cases had been there before, and Mr Roberts pressed for the full penalties, otherwise the people laughed at them. Orders to attend school were made in each case, and some of them apprised of further proceedings. The Drink List. Jane Hughes, Graig-terrace, drunk and disorderly, fined 2s (ill and 7s costs John Hughes, son of the above, similar offence, sent to gaol for 14 days William Jones, Llangan, made his 38th appearance for being drunk and disorderly, fined 10s and 7s costs or 14 days William Hughes, drunk and disorderly on two different occasions, and was fined 2 od and ,III(I lf). fid costs, or 7 and 14 days respec- tively Edward Davies, Beacon's-hill for drunken- ness, fined -is and its costs or 14 days. COUKTY COURT, TIES DAY, — Before Horatio Lloyd, Esq., judge. Mr H,(tlics Bankmpte;His Honor gave judg- ment in the case of Rev. William Hughes, a bank- rupt, unose case was heard at Carnarvon, and re- ported incur issue of the 12th.-His Honor said he had quite made up his miad as to the validity of the bill of sale (A Messrs .Jone and Son, Denbigh coal 0' &c., meichants, for £300, and he should pronounce for it, bnt he had feot his notes with him.—Air Weston thanked his Hou(;r and asked him to send a note to the Registrar of tlk' Court, which hif; Honor promised to do. Mr H. Roberts, who appeared for the Trustees under the bankruptcy, accepted the decision and undertook t:. pay out the bill, only asking that it should not be pressed till the assets were realised which was now being done this Air Weston agreed to and the parties left the court. The £ 300 being now secured to Messrs Jones and Son. Interpleader.^Pierce v. Danls.—Air Mason, Ches- ter, appeared to support the claims of Mrs Danks to the furniture in the house she with her husband lived in at Bodfari, which had been distrained upon for debt; he appeared on behalf of Mr Ed. J ones, Nes- ton, executor under the will of the late Mr Robinson, Albion Hotel, Chester. Mr Louis, of Ruthin, who was on the other side, took a particular objection, which however was afterwards waived, that the bill of particulars had not been sent in in time, it should have been seven clear days and it was only four. 1 rom Mr Mason's opening it appeared that Air Robinson executed a will on the 5th of May, 1K71, and a codicil on 19th May, 1870, and he died on the 22nd of that month. In the will he left his daughter Alargaret .£700, and she having married in September, 187o, he made the codicil to secure the 9700 for her sole use and benefit independent of her husband. This JB700 was in August. 1876, charged with a sum of £ 450 for furniture which was had from one Cohen, of London, and put in a house at Bodfari. Mrs Danks (who is the wife of Samuel Hooper Danks), was put into the box, and testified to these facts. Mr Louis, in his cross-examination, elicited that what the defendant was distrained for was for groceries sup- plied by Mr W. Clwyd Pierce, and that there were some things in the house which were not supplied by Cohen, but were purchased from tradespeople in Denbigh.—The Tudge agreed with Mr Lewis that the charge and settlement which had been executed after her marriage were a legal fraud, and he would adjourn the case to look carefully into the authorities. However the bailiff, Joseph Roberts, was called, and he proved that there was a gun or guns in the house, and in the kitchen there was every- thing suitable for a gentleman's kitchen there were also two dogs, though there was no horse, or hay, or corn a carriage had lately been sold. There was a handsome billiard table, but that was in the settled list. There was also a bill due for ironmongery, but it was found to be principally for powder and shot indeed Mr Samuel Hooper Danks was out shooting, while his wife was contending with the bailiffs in the house, but the bailiffs could not tell what he shot. The judge said that no doubt there was enough goods to satisfy Mr Pierce's claim, without touching the settled goods, and he would give judgment for him the claimant (Danks) to pay costs. COUNTY POLICE COURT, WEDNESDAY.—Before W. D. W. Griffith. Esq., P. H. Chambres, Esq,, and Meilr Owen, Esq. Road out of Repair.—Vim. Evans, Hafod, Llan. efydd was summoned by Mr P. Wynne Yorke for keeping a part of the road in very bad repair.—Air Evans, the highway surveyor, said he was doing what he could, and Mr Yorke had contributed to the con- dition of the road by hauling his timber, and Mr Chambres, at Pandy, by letting the water on to it at the brook.—Air Chambres said he would meet the surveyors there.—The case was adjourned for six weeks, in which time Mr Evans said he thought he could finish the work. Non-maintenance. Aleshach Evans, journeyman butcher, was summoned to assist in supporting his mother who receives 68 per week from the union-Mr Grimesley, the clerk, and Mr Edward Jones, relieving oiffcer, proved the case.—Order made for Is per week, and costs.—Isaac Thomas, wheelwright, was also summoned for not maintaining his mother, who receives 2s per week. He said he did keep her and also kept a little orphan nephew. There was no order made in this case the Bench thinking that the 2s per week was not much assistance in the case, if the man kept his mother for it and kept a little boy off the parish.—Robert Jones, Abergele, who appeared by his wife was also asked for Is a week, but the man had been out of work for ten weeks.—Order for Is a week, but the costs which were 18" 6d, were not a1l0we(1. —Robert Williams, Llansannan, was similarly sum- moned. He did not appear, but his mother, the pauper, did. He had refused to pay the arrears, 3!)., and an order for its payment was made its execution to be suspended for a fortnight within which time the order must be obeyed. SPECIAL TOWN COUNCIL IIEETING. WED. NESDAY.—Present: The Alayor (Alderman Thomas Gee); Ex-mayor (Alderman T. J. Williams); Coun- cillors E. Thomas, J. Davies, R. H. Roberts, Dr, G. W. Roberts, J. Armor, W. Alorris, R. Parry, W. Hughes, John Lloyd, J. S. Jones,,and E. W. Gee. The Election.—The Alayor congratulated the four gentlemen who had that day been nominated for another three years, and that they would this year ride over without a contest. The Surre//or Discharged.—At the request of the Mayor the Town Clerk stated what steps had been taken in respect to the resolutions of the last council meeting. He had written to Mr J. C. Wynne Ed- wards, Mr Clough's solicitor, in reference to his last letter, and communicating the resolution of the Council, and had received the following reply :— [COPY: ] Denbigh, October 21st, lq78. Denbigh Drainage, Snrithfteld Works, C-c. DEAR SIR,—I regret lilY last letter was deemed it was intended to he very distinct and to follow the plain provisions of the contract of the 4th of May, 1877. In accordance with this, Mr Clmigh is quite prepared to carrv on all works in the manner customary and pro- per for surveyor in such cases," but he declines to appoint a clerk of the works at his own expense, as forming no part of his engagement. The whole question turns upon the right construction of the contract, as to which I have so strong an opinion that, without prejudice, I am prepared to advise Mr Clough to accept the decision of either Mr Watkin Williams or Mr Horatio Lloyd by way of arbitration, and to avoid litigation and expense. As to the second resolution of the Council, it is obviously impossible for Mr Clough to send in his account at present, as his future course and the amount of compensation he may be obliged to seek will depend on the future attitude of the Council towards him.—Yours truly, J. C. W. EDWARDS. The Worshipful the Mayor of Denbigh. On the reading of the letter, the Mayor said it was now clear that Mr Clough declined to appoint a clerk of the works, and there was no intimation in that letter that he intended to oversee the works, and they were still in the dark as to Mr Clough's future inten- tions. and Mr J. C. W. Edwards still advised him not to do as they wish. Their position, therefore, was, that Mr Clough still declines to appoint a clerk of the works, and he gives no intimation that he will superintend the works as if there was one, and as to Mr Edwards' proposition to refer the question in dis- pute to Mr Lloyd or Air W. Williams, the question was, were the Council prepared to do so ? No doubt both gentlemen or either would act fairly, but what- ever those gentlemen might say about the agreement, Mr Clough placed himself in this position: he is to do the work for five per cent., and if he expected the Council to appoint a clerk of the works, how was it that until Mr Jeffreys' tender was accepted Mr Clough never said a word about it. He ought to have made the Council acquainted with that expectation, so that they may have taken it into account in appointing his percentage, and then lie (the mayor) would have proposed that the work should not have been given to Air Clough unless he would superintend (hear, hear.) There was a difficulty about the ques- tion of getting out the quantities, which was allowed to pass, and now that difficulty had arisen; and lie felt that their duty to the ratepayers compelled them as a Council to put an end to Mr Clough's connection with the Council as regards these works—the drainage and the smithfield, and proceed to advertise for and appoint a clerk of the works, and then, as his time became less occupied, they could appoint him borough surveyor, and perhaps collector of rates, and thus, by amalgamating duties, save money. First, he thought it was their duty to give Mr Clough a month's notice that his connection with that Council should cease. They might, too, look at the roads and other matters, possibly they may be better served; let them secure the services of a good man and then have all the work done well. He (the Mayor) was sorry to make those remarks, but as he viewed the question, Mr Clough had placed them in a position from which that was the only way of escape.—Air R. H. Roberts quite agreed with the Mayor in the remarks he had just made, and even if the agreement did not fully bear out the construction put upon it, the resolution was most emphatic. He (Mr Huberts) had been informed that it was usual to appoint a clerk of works in which the surveyor was engaged, but he thought the agreement did fully bind Mr Clough.—The Mayor read the clause Without any extras whatever."—Air R. H. Roberts had himself inserted those words to prevent a recurrence of his experience at the school board, where a charge was made for taking out quantities and then a charge for the paper on which they were copied !-The Mayor: It should always be remembered that when the resolution was passed, Mr Clough had already super- intended the High-street drain without saying a word about a clerk of the works, and he (the Mayor) thought he should do the same for this work at 5 per cent.— Air Roberts But he was glad to get that five per cent, then, as he was not entitled to anything. He did that as stir veyor. -Af tei-,t pause Mr J. Davies rose and said they all understood that the 5 per cent. was to cover all, and he for one considered it his duty to move that they at once did away with Mr Clough, and he moved that Mr dough's connection with the borough as to the drainage and the Smithfield and as borough surveyor should at once ceage,Mr Y. S. Jones said he agreed entirely with the Mayor, and he thought at the time that 5 per cent. was too much. But he should like to know if they were not bound by the agreement ?—The Mayor: Mr Clough's solicitor took a different view of the act to what the Council did.—The Town Clerk said he put the same construc- tion upon it as the Council di(I.-Afr Lloyd suggested that the Board of Works might object to pay them the loan without the certificate of a Surveyor.—The Mayor said he thought there would be no difficulty about that.-Further conversation ensued especially about the custody of the plans and other property of the Corporation, and it was thought that Mr Clough being a gentleman would not put any difficulties in the way of their proceeding with the work, and Mr R. II. Roberts ultimately seconded Air Davies' reso- lution, Mr J. S. Jones having seconded it with a proviso.—Air Morris, rising, said that he thought the action of the Council was hard towards Mr Clough, who had done nothing wrong as their borough surveyor. He moved that he only be discharged from the two works named, and that the question in dispute be re- ferred to Mr Watkin Williams or Mr Horatio Lloyd. --Mr Armor seconded the amendment, which, on being put, had only the mover and seconder for it. Air Lloyd did not vote, and there were ten hands held up for Mr Davies' motion.—Air Lloyd then proposed another amendment, leaving out the reference clause. This Air Aloriss seconded, and Messrs Morris, Armor, and Lloyd voted for it, there being ten against as he fore.—The motion that Mr Clough's connection with the Council as surveyor, &c\, was therefore carried by ten to three. Appointment of a Successor.—After some conversa- tion of no real interest, it was agreed to advertise for a Clerk of the Works and a Borough Surveyor at a present salary of ft)0 per annum, and the Council broke up, after a three hours' sitting. HOPE AND CAERGWRLE. THE SOCIAL CLUB.—Our correspondent writes :— We are sorry to have to record the collapse of the Social Club, Caergwrle. It is a shame that the wealthier portion of the population did not patronise and support ijuch a nohle object as the improvement of the working class. The promoters deserve all praise for their perseverance in carrying it on for nearly twelve months. Why was it not supported ? Was it on too small a scale for some of the large-minded clws' If so, let us work and rescue that magnificent build- ing, which ought to belong to the working men, and now standing like a spectre, pointing, as it were,ttlie, finger of scorn and derision on the whole village and its lilitles8 inhabitants. THE ROBERTS' FAMILY.—Under this heading an en- tertainment was held in the National Schoolroom, Bridge End, on Alonday, which was fairly attended, although the weather was unfavorable. The Roberts' family ktyle themselves "The Original Cambrian Minstrels," and consist of Mr Roberts (Alaw Elwy), the celebrated Welsh harpist, with his daughter and seven sons, viz., Miss Anne Roberts, the Welsh ballad girl, Air John Roberts, jun., principal solo harpist and vocalist, Messrs Reuben and James Roberts, twin brothers, double bass and flageolet, Mr Albert Roberts, solo harpist and second violinist, Ernest and Charley Roberts, twin brothers, harp and tambourine, Willie Roberts, kitten harpist. The performance was well worth a visit. PETTY SESSIONS. THURSDAY. —Before M. Frost and A. F. Jones, Esqrs. Transfer of Lireii-se.-Thitt of the Crown, Peny- mynydd, from Mrs Shone to Thomas Jones. LiYe at Petkiiijigiiyd(I.-Joliii Davies, who has ap- peared before in the Police Court, was charged by Josiah Davies, who has also appeared as complainant against the same defendant, and had him bound over to keep the peace on more than one occasion. On this occasion, Josiah Davies said that on the 28th of September the defendant came and attempted to pre- vent him bringing his corn out of the field, digging a trench across the entrance to the field, so that he could not bring his corn out. However, he did, but defendant afterwards threatened to burn his straw, and in consequence he had to build his stack in another yard. It appears that formerly the defendant occupied the property now in the occupation of the complainant, and a good deal of jealousy ensued. The defendant then put a lot of questions to the complainant, among others whether he had not been fighting a raintub a little while previously thinking it was the defendant. He also asked who heard him threaten to burn his stack, but the complainant coiil(l iiotgay. He also said that lie was the proprietor of the corn in question and not the complainant. To this the landlord, Mr Brook- field, replied that the property was that of the com- plainant, who was very much annoyed by the de- fendant.-P.C. Parry said that the defendant on the day in question roused the %tli,)Ienei,Iil)oiirlioo(I.-Tlie Magistrates bound the defendant over to keep the peace for six months, himself in R20, and two others in £10 each.—The defendant said he would go to gaol, and sat down. Immediately afterwards he rose and asked whether he would be allowed to take a summons out against the complain- ant for perjury. He stated that the complainant had sworn that defendant took or tore some papers down on the 14th, whereas it was on the 12th that it was dona,-The justices' clerk, Mr Kelly, said the magis- trates could not grant a warrant on such grounds. Stealing Firewood.—John Hibbert, of Penvmynydd, was charged by Mr Josiah Davies with stealing a few sticks, his property, on the morning of the 11th Sep- tember last. The case was proved by P.C. Evan Parry, and defendant admitted it. The complainant was strongly advised not to press the case, but he per- sisted, and the defendant was sent to gaol for three days.
DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES TO VOLUNTEERS. On Saturday the distribution of prizes to the Caer- gwrle or Sixth Corps of the Flintshire Rifle Volun- teers took place at the National Schools, Bridge End. It had been arranged that the prizes should he dis- tributed by Col. Roper, the High Sheriff for the county, but owing to the unfortunate illness of his mother he was unable to attend, and sent a letter to that effect to Capt. Frost commanding the corps. The attendance at the school was not so large as usual, owing doubtless to the fact that a large number of people could not attend, it being market day at \Vrexham. The same reason may explain why the muster of the corps was so very small, not more than 35 or 40 parading opposite the stores near the Glynne Arms Inn. Those who did appear had, in a few in- stances, a soldierly bearing, while all were clean and neat. There they were inspected by the commanding officer, and joined presently by their new band, which, considering the time it has been in existence, played fairly well, and, with a little attention and per- severance during the winter months will become a really good band. The inspection being over, the whole marched to the school-room, where a platform had been erected, and the prizes laid on the table. ('apt. Frost, in opening the proceedings, said :-In looking back upon the past year, I cannot see any subject for regret. Financially, our position is very much improved, and since the last time we met in this room, our debt has been reduced by one half. We cannot expect suddenly to rise out of a state bordering on insolvency into one of great financial prosperity, bat we have certainly made a very great advance during the last few months, for if the affairs of the corps were wound up to-day we should have a balance in hand of about £1). Against that, however, we must lay the fact that we shall be obliged to pro- cure a quantity of new uniform next year. For a long time one of the great wants of the corps was a band, and last Christmas we determined to face the diffi. culty. The result has given satisfaction to every one; in fact the progress it has made has been the admira- tion of the neighbourhood, thanks to the untiring energy of Hergt. G-riffitls, its instructor, and the great perseverance of its members. Its monetary condition is the only aspect in which it does not flourish, but with a certain amount of exertion I hope that will soon be set right. We all look back with pleasure at the late encampment at Rhyl, and, if I may be pardoned for boasting, I will express my opinion that we ac- quitted ourselves there with credit. If the testimony of an impartial witness can be relied upon, No. 6 company was undoubtedly conspicuous at the inspec- tion for its steady drill, and especially in the march past. (Applause.) The rules of the corps, being open to many objections, have long fallen into disuse. We have therefore compiled a new code, and having com- pared the rules of many corps, we believe that we have secured a thoroughly serviceable collection. Too much importance cannot be attached to good rules. No doubt all the members of the corps are aware that a few weeks ago we had an addition to our numbers in a chaplain. I am sure that this will have a very beneficial influence upon us, and I thank Mr Rowlands for having hitherto taken so great an interest in us, and for having accepted this post. (Applause.) With regard to attendance at drill, this year can claim a very marked advantage over last, in that there is an increase of 27 per cent. of drills entered on the muster roll, and this would have shown an even greater in- crease had not drill been suspended during the whole of August and half of September. In the three months immediately before camp there was an increase ot no less than 72 per cent. over the same months last year. During the six summer months of 1877, there was an average of 14.\ drills per man, whereas this year there has been an average of 17A per man. The greatest number has been attained by Sergeant Davies j who, having put in GO, carries of the first prize, and has earned it well. But though the main portion of the company has done very well, I regret to say there are six men who will not he efficient, and who there- fore will not earn for the corps the grant which is allowed by Government towards uniform and other expenses. Though some of these six, no doubt, were actually prevented from attending the necessary drilh, yet the number is a great deal too large and when, on referring to the muster roll, we find that one man only put in one drill, another only two, and another only three, I think they bring shame on the company. However, it speaks very well for those who have j attended regularly that such a very good average per man has been attained. (Applause.) He concliikle(I by asking Mrs Meadows Frost to present the prizes in the absence of Colonel Roper. Airs Frost then presented the prizes to the winne rs The following is the list:— 500 AND fillU Y\RIIS.~ 1st prize (watch chain presented by Mrs M. Frost), Sergt.

(A squail drill counts k.) The Rev. J. Rowlands, the chaplain, then expressed the thanks of the corps to the donors of prizes, and said their special thanks were due to Miss Wilson Jones, who was the oldest subscriber, to Air Johnson, Mr Sharnian, and Air Bowers for the kind interest they took in the corps, and to Airs Piercy for the prizes she had so handsomely contributed. They were specially indebted to Mrs Meadows Frost, the mother of their worthy Captain, who they might be sure took no ordinary interest in the corps, and had given a very substantial proof of the reality of that interest by contributing so largely to the prizes. (Applause.) ■ Mr Meadows Frost acknowledged the expression of thanks, on behalf of the donors. Capt. Frost then moved a hearty vote of thanks to Mrs Meadows ,tti k s to Mrs Mea d ows I rost for her kindness in distributing the prizes. Cheers were heartily given for Airs Frost, and the proceedings were then brought to a close. The distribution being over, the corps marched back to the Glynne Arms, when each man had a lunch pro- vided in a good and substantial manner by Mr and Mrs Piercy, after which the loyal and patriotic toasts were given and received, and the health of the Captam I drunk in an enthusiastic manner. HOLT AND FARNDON. ELECTION OF MA rOR,-A meeting of the burgesses was held in the Town Hall, on Alonday, for the pur- pose ot electing Mayor and other oiffcers. Mr Tench, Deputy Steward, presided. After the roll of burl gesses had been called, and the absentees amerced in the sum of 2d, the usual formalities gone through, and then came the election of mayor. Air James Parry, farmer, proposed the present Mayor (Air S. Dale) and in doing so said he was worthy of the office, for he had served them faithfully, and he did not see why he should be clitnge(I.-Tliis was seconded by Mr Charles Jones, and no other candidate being- proposed, Mr Dale was declared duly elected.-Alr Dale said he felt very much obliged for the honor they had again conferred on him he had no other motive but to do the best in every sense for them. Whatever else they might think he should be sorry not to do this. Their interests were all one, and they were interested in serving each other. That was his only motive, viz., to do what lie could to serve them. Mr Dale was also re-elected coroner Mr George Thomas being appointed town bailiff, and Mr John Barnes, Queen's bailiff.-Alr Dale read the accounts for the year Precefling, which showed a balance in hand [ of R3 198 5(1, aftei- (leii-ayiii-, all expenses.—Mr George Edwards asked that the report anent Common Wood should be read to them—The Mayor said the Com- missioners were still sitting, and that it was not ready. He questioned whether it would be printed separately. He bad seen the printed report sent down to Mr Rymer to I we it corrected, and it was exactly the same as in the statement he made them. There was I nothing in it that anyone could complain of; it was very favorable. He would, if they pieced, write to London to enquire about the report. The proceed- ings then closed. LLANGOLLEN. ALARMINC FIRE.Otl Saturday night, about eight I o'clock, the town was thrown into the greatest alarm and confusion by seeing large flames ascending from the middle of the town, and illuminating the whole place. On proceeding to the spot, it was found that a shed used by Air John Dav ies, ironmonger, for the storage of benzoline oil was all in a blaze, and the fire threatened to extend to the adjoining buildings, Hundreds of people were soon on the spot, but it was evident that nothing could be done to quench the lfames, the oil being so inflammable in its nature. It was therefore simply allowed to burn itself out, and everything done to prevent it spreading. A quantity of water thrown upon it only served to extend the con- lfagration, the oil floating upon the surface, and thus increasing the danger. The tire brigade was promptly in attendance, but owing to some cause or other could not render tne least assistance. The fire was ex- tinguished in about an hour. The cause of the acci- dent was the imprudent action of one of Air Davies' employes, in going to fetch the oil with a candle placed in an open lantern. It is fortunate that the fire was checked so promptly, the only damage done being the total destruction of this shed. Within a few yards of the spot was stored a large quantity of combustible materials, which if once ignited would have caused an immense conflagration, the extent of which it would be impossible to conjecture. OSWESTRY. WELSH CO.VOREOATIO.VAL AXNTVEIW.UIY SERVICKS. Anniversary services were held at the Welsh Con- gregational Chapel on Sunday. The preachers were the Rev W. Griffiths, Rhosymedre, and the Rev Dr Rees, Chester. All the services were well attended, and a substantial sum was subscribed in aid of the renovating fund. THE ABEKCAHNK DISASTER.—The Alayor (J. Thomas Esq.) has received t39 6" 7d in subscriptions and collections for the relief of the sufferers by the Aber- carne disaster. SMITHFIELD AUCTION.—There was, as usual, a very large supply of stock at the auction last Wednesday. Besides the ordinary stock, Alessrs Whitfield had a speciality in the shape of a pedigree bull, which, after some sharp anti exciting bidding, was knocked down at B37 15s. Besides this they sold 43 cattle and calves and 484 sheep and pigs. Messrs Pugh, Stokes, and Owen, 28 cattle and calves and 2H4 sheep and pigs. Mr Samuel Bickerton, 63 cattle and calves and 234 sheep and pigs. Air J. C. McKie, 55 cattle and calves and 135 sheep and pigs; making the total to 1306. MISSIONARY SERVICES.—On Sunday two sermons were preache I in the Baptist Chapel by the Rev G. B. Thomas, London, the deputation from the Baptist Alissionary Society. There were good congregations considering the inclemency of the weather, and liberal collections were made in behalf of the funds of the society. On Alonday evening a public meeting was held in the chapel, when an interesting account was given by the deputation of the labours of the society. The chair was occupied by the Rev E. D. Wilks, pastor of the church. THE BISHOP OF 'AXCHE":TEU' VI.IT.-The Bishop of Manchester preached two sermons in the Parish Church on Sunday, the occasion being the continuation of the anniversary services of the restoration of the church. The large building was crowded at both services, and it is computed that in the evening, there were between two thousand and three thousand pre- sent. In the morning, his Lordship preached from the first chapter of the first of Corinthians, 4th and 5th verses-" I thank my God al ways on your behalf for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ. That in everything ye are enriched by Him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge. The evening sermon was based on the 25th and two following verses of the 14th chapter of St. Luke. The offertorie were in aid of the Cottage Hospital, and amounted to f.V,2 15s 4d. A OWN COCNCIL.—A special meeting of the Town Coun- cil was held on Saturday, to consider matters affecting the water supply. Prior to entering upon this subject, a deputation was appointed to meet Captain Stevens, inspector of the Rural Sanitary Authority, with reference to the nuisance caused at the borough sewage outlet. The committee appointed to consider the water supply then presented their report, from which it appeared that three different schemes for the obtaining of an additional supply or storage had been suggested and discussed—(1) Obtaining a supply from new and independent sources such as Llechrydau and the Springs (2) the making of a large storage reser- voiratPenygwelly, and (3) the construction of a further reservoir at the Brick-kilns. Each of these schemes was fully discussed, but ultimately they were referred to the Works Committee, to consider and advise upon the best course to be adopted, with power to call in an engineer, and consult with the Local Government Board, and the committee report to the Council as early as possible. [At a meeting of the committee on Monday, the Mayor, the Town 0 Clerk, and Air Parry- Jones were requested to wait upon the Local Govern- ment Board and confer with them on the various schemes. ]-The special Water Committee had also under discussion the question of the enlargement of the markets, and how the money was to be raised to carry out the work, the decision of the committee being that it would be necessary to obtain by special Act of Parliament, or Provisional Order, an increase of borrowing powers to their present Market Acts, together with power to acquire and deal with lands and buildings.—It was decided to apply for a Pro- visional Order.—The question of the widening of Cross-street was subsequently discussed, and it appeared from the result of enquiries, that the sug- gested widening on the south side could not be carried out. Provisional agreements were ordered to be entered into for the acquisition of the properties of Mr Croxon, Air Furmstone, and Air D. Roberts, offered to be sold by private treaty, subject to the approval of the Local Government Board. RUABON. A CfRiors AFFAIR.-On Saturday afternoon, Mr Parr, National School master, while in Wrexham, bought a parcel of slates and school books, which, on ?c b oo l I)oo k s, which, 4)1-1 returning home he gave in charge of a porter at Wrex- ham station. On arriving at Iiuabon, and inquiring for his parcel, no one seemed to know anything about it. His attention, however, was soon attracted by a man selling slates on the platform, which he soon found out to be his property. He accosted the man, who said he had bought them in Wrexham, and re- fused to give them up. Sergeant Jones was sent for. and the man was taken into custody, being remanded to Alonday next at Wrexham. He gives his name as John Jones Dolgelley. WESLEYAN FOREIGN AIISSIONS.—The annual Alis- sionary Sermons were preached last Sunday by Air G. Fisher, of Wrexham, in the Wesleyan Chapel, and on "Wednesday evening the annual meeting was held in the chapel, presided over by Mr Ralph Darlington, Tir vfron, who was supported on the jdatform by the Revs. John M. Bamford, and C. H. Barker, Wrex- ham Rev. J. H. Hughes, Cefn, and Rev. J. B. Joseph, Ruabon. The meeting was commenced with devotional exercises, after which the. chairman said they had assembled to advocate a noble cause, which he believed was God's cause. He then called upon the Secretary (the Rev. (4. H. Barker), to read the report, which was very encouraging. He said Ruabon branch of the Wrexham circuit last year con- tributed JEt) 2s lOd, including contributions, collec- tions, and juvenile Christmas offerings.—The Rev. John AI. Bamford, in an earnest address, said he hoped their annual meeting would prove a source of consecration and devotedness of each of them to God. --The Rev. J. B. Joseph advised them all to work for God, especially the young. He said they had heard the financial report read, but the missionary I work done was only known to God.—The Rev. J. H. Hughes, who is a returned Alissionary from India, said their aim was a simple but a very direct one. was to send the Gospel to those who had it not. He gave a very interesting speech, full of thrilling and amusing incident in connection with his own mission life in India. The usual votes of thanks, together with the singing of Hold the fort," and the pro- nouncing of the benediction, brought the meeting to a close. There was a large attendance, the chapel being well filled. Collections were made on Sunday to the amount of 15s ¡'¡(l, which, together with £2 2s lLd given on Wednesday, made a total of 2 18s 8d. INSPECTION OF WYNNSTAY COLLIERY.—In com- pliance with the Alines Regulation Act of 1872, the workmen of this colliery, having formed themselves into a committee, appointed the following four per- sons, viz., David Roberts, Thomas Cuffin, Robert Evans, and Edward Valentine, to inspect the under- ground workings, and on Thursday week Evans and Valentine descended No. 2 shaft and made a thorough inspection with their safety lamps of the 6ft and 8ft seams, best known as the new and main coals. At the same time Roberts and Cuffin descended Xo. 1 shaft and examined the yard and wall and bench seams. Both parties found the roads and the ventilation in good order. Having examined all the working places, they then proceeded to the old workings or deads, where they derived the greatest satisfaction, they being free from gas, with the exception of a small quantity (six feet long one foot thick and two feet wide) found in the south yard coal, which was re- moved the following day. On ascending the shafts they made the following reports, which were posted on the pit head NO. I SHAFT. Wynnstay Collierv. We, the undersigned, have examined the following places, viz., -North and south wall and bench coals and north and south yard coals, and found all working places safe and free from gas, and all old workings free from gas, ex- cepting a little in the south side yard coal (lift by 1ft hy 2ft\ We also found good roads and good wiudways, an (I every"- thing satisfactory.—Signed, DAVID ROBERTS. 17th October, 1878.

We also found good roads and good windways, and everything satisfactory. Signed, ROHERT EVANS. 17th October, 1878. EDWARD VALENTINE. We think much praise is due to the managers of so extensive a colliery as this (there being many miles of underground workings)that it should lie found so safe and free from gas, and in such a satisfactory condi- tion. HARVEST THANKSGIVING SERVICE.—The annual harvest festival at the Parish Church was held on Fri- day evening. The decorations were of an elaborate description. On the Communion Table was placed a beautiful cross of snow white Eucharis lilies with ground work of moss and scarlet geraniums, and at the back a splendid miniature sheaf of wheat. Offer- ings of fruit were also placed on the table. The Com- munion rails were handsomely decorated, and below i the east window was the text, The earth is the Lord's," in apples. The pulpit decorations were very effective, and the reading desk was also tastefully ■ treated. The lectern, too, was a striking feature, and an orange tree bearing fruit stood in the front. The font was also a model of good taste. The window sills were covered with a bed of moss dotted with dahlias, scarlet geraniums, ears of corn, and sun- lfowers. The organ bore the following text, "Let, the people praise Thee, 0 Lord," with a ground work of j ferns. The pillars were entwined with a thick string of laurel surmounted with various flowers, and the gaseliers were entwined with ivy, hawthorn berries, corn, and choice flowers. The following is a list of the ladies who took part in the work: -Altat- i-ails, Mrs Cowan, Penygardden, Aliss Williams Wynn, Wynnstay, and Aliss Edwards, The Vicarage: cross on the altar, Miss Cox, of Wynnstay pulpit, Miss Alartin, High-street, and Miss Marsh, Plasmadoc Villa; reading desk, Airs Lawt >n Roberts, Ruabon, Miss AI. Edwards, the Vicarage; font, Aliss Murless, Wynnstay Arms east windows, Miss Cox and Miss Spriinglin, Wynnstay text in apples under the east window, Mr Aliddleton, Wynnstay gaseliers, Aliss Alary Nesta Williams Wynn, Wynnstay, Aliss Cowan, Penygardden, and the Misses Turner, Gardden Lodge lectern, Aliss Whalley, Plasmadoc, and Miss Thomson, Penybryn; organ and choir seat, Miss Arthur, the Hospital, assisted by Miss Hughes. The following were amongst those who assisted generally Mrs Edwards, The Vicarage, Airs Cope, The Vicarage, Miss Bird, Bryn, the Alisses Bowers, Plas Eyton, Aliss Hughes, Offa Cottage, Aliss Sophia Alurless, Wynnstay Arms, and Miss S. Ed wards, The Vicarage. The Rev. Stephen Thomas and Air R. Lloyd also rendered valuable assistance, and contributions of hot house plants, fruit, and ferns were sent by Sir W. W. Wynn, Bart., 1\1,P" flowers from Airs O. S. Wynne, Plasnewydd, Airs Whalley, Plasmadoc, Miss Bowers, of Eyton, Airs Edwards, The Vicarage, Mrs Hughes, Fennant, and Air John Kenrick, Wynn Hall corn from Captain Ormerod, Penylan, Airs Thompson, Bryn, Mr Murless, Wynn- stay Anns, Mr Owen, Aloreton, and Air Lewis, Park Eaton. The service commenced at seven p.m., by which hour the church was well filled. The Pev. E. W. Edwards, vicar, read the prayers. The first lesson (Dent. viii.) was read by the Rev. Stephen Thomas, curate, and the second lesson (Rev. xiv.) by the Rev. H. R. Roderick, chaplain at Wynnstay. The anthem was taken from the 65tli and lOltli Psalms. The Very Rev. the Dean of Bangor was the preacher, and took as his text Haggai i., 7—10. His sermon lasted over an hour. Air Sparrow played two brilliant voluntaries before and after the service. The offer- 1 tory was in aid of; the Church Extension Society,
THE UNION COLLECTORSHIP. On Friday evening week, a meeting of the rate- payers was held in the Court House, for the purpose of considering the proposal to appoint collectors for the union in lieu of the assistant overseers. The chair was taken shortly after 5 o'clock by Air Owen Slaney Wynne, and amongst the ratepayers present were Mr G. Hampden Whailey, Mr Owen Hughes, Air H. C. Murless, Air Dennis, Air Goiner Roberts, Air Evan Hughes, Mr John Williams, Mr William Williams, Alaesylan, Mr Thomas Wright, Air Henry ■ Jones, Mr Owen Price, Air Daniel ()>ven, Air Robert Jones, Air Thomas Williams, Mr Joseph Owen, i Ioreton, Air John Jarvis, Mr R. T. Davies, Mr K. Kenrick, Mr David Jones, Mr John Parry. Air R. Bowen, Mr R. Rogers, Mr Jenkin Lloyd, Mr Joseph Edwards, Air Enoch Jones, Mr Benjamin Davies, Mr Robert Roberts, Air Joseph Davies, &c. Mr Owen Hughes, at tiie request of the chairman, briefly explained the object of tile meeting, and said that Guardians representing Ruabon parish wished those present to say, as ratepayers, whether they were willing to relinquish the rights they now pos- sesse(I to the Board of Guardians, as it would cer- tainly be found that the proposed change would effect no pecuniary saving whatever, and could be of no other advantage to the interests of the parish. Air Benjamin Davies said he thought the proposi- tion which had been mooted before the Board of Guardians was a very unreasonable one, and one that ought to be opposed by the Ruabon ratepayers. It was not perhaps for him to consider their assistant; overseers personally in tlii., matter, but lie must say this that as an assistant overseer and collector Mr Wright was second to none in any union in North Wales. (Hear, hear.) He performed his duties with great ability, and had given universal satisfaction.; About the Board of Guardians, Air Ffoulkes had of course endeavoured to show that the proposed change would effect a saving to the Union of noo, and no doubt wanted everybody to believe that the Union j would be benefitted to that extent by appointing col-1 lectors in lieu of the present system. Supposing a saving of klOO to the Union would be effected, the parish of Ruabon was one-fifth of the Union, conse- quently they would benefit to the extent of just t:20 annually. Now the question he should like to ask was whether the paltry sum of £20 saved for a large parish like Ruabon was a sufficient reason why they should dispense with the services of a person of ability like their assistant overseer ? (Hear, hear.) He should say no He maintained, further, that the proposed change would be a great loss to the parish. He understood that the collector would have to col- lect the poor rates, but not the sanitary rates, to col-1 lect which another collector would have to be ap- pointed. Where, then, was the saving of k20 ? Again. from what he had read, should a collector be ap. I pointed, he would not be asked or expected to assess the property in the parish a duty which, as they knew, belonged to the overseers, but which was generally performed by the assist- ant overseer. The office of overseer in the parish of Ruabon was by no means a desirable or coveted position, and the overseers who were ap- pointed didn't trouble their heads about assessing property. He knew, personally, he didn't trouble his head about the matter, although the duty of assessing was, as they were aware, very correctly and very justly discharged by their assistant. Therefore, if a collector was appointed, and it was the duty of the overseers to assess, lie meant to say that the overseers would not assess, and it would be a great loss to the ratepayers who were assessed. In conclusion he maintained that if the proposed alterations were carried into effect, it would, instead of saving them f20 per annum, cause a loss perhaps of £100, or 2oo, or even more eventually, to the ratepayers of the parish of Ruabon. For these reasons, therefore, he opposed, with all his heart, the contemplated change in the mode of collecting the poor rate. (Applause.) Air Hampden Whalley said it appeared that at most the ratepayers of Iiuabon might only expect to gain £ 20 per annum, but Air Davies said they might he absolutely losers by the change. Personally, he opposed it because it tended to centralisation. (Hear, hear). He did not see why they should give up their rights into the hands of the Board of Guardians. (Hear, hear). They could surely manage their own affairs. They all knew their assistant overseer, Air Wright, and had faith in him, whilst in the newly appointed collector they might meet with a man of whom they knew nothing at all. He thought, person- ally, that, instead of gaining by the alteration, they would undoubtedly lose, not only in money, but in influence and power. He therefore opposed the pro- posed change, and hoped the other guardians would do likewise. (Applause). AIrE van Hughes and Air Williams, Pentre Clawdd, having spoken strongly in opposition to the proposal, Air Gomer Roberts said he and Air Owen Hughes, S as representatives of the ratepayers, had stated their views when the subject was brought forward at the Board of Guardians, and they now wished to hear what the ratepayers had to say for themselves The chief ground of objection he stood upon, personally, was the transferring of the powers of the ratepayers to the Board of Guardians, and thence by a natural transition to the Local Government Board, of whom the Board of Guardians was merely the agent. Air Dennis said it struck him that the parish of Ruabon was so large that it afforded sufficient employ- ment for one man to collect the rates. It was not like the ease of a small township where a man's time could be partly fille-I up by other duties. For that reason, he saw n" objection in placing the command of Air Wright under the authority of the Board of Guardians. Whether it was to Air Wright, or Mr any body else, was not the question, but the parish was so large and afforded full employment for one man, that he thought they should certainly continue on the old system. He (lid not think the proposed change would be for their benefit, and he, for one, should not consent to it. Let other parishes speak f >r them- selves. (Applause). Air H. C. Alurless thought there was nothing what- ever to be gained by the change. They had now the assistant overseer under their own control, whereas in the newly-appointed "cnllectnr" they mi,ht have a man who would "harass all the ratepayers," if he had to call upon them more than once. He did not I think they could possibly improve upon the present state of things. Air B. Davies said when Air Foulkes proposed this radical change, he did not take into consideration the collecting of the sanitary rate, or the lighting rate, nor there-assessing of old property and the assessing of new. He considered none of these things when he tried to prove there would be a saving of 1:21). He (Air Davies) took it for granted they would have to employ some one else to perform these duties, and of course their services would have to he paid for. Mr Evan Hughes asked if the new appointment included the collection of the rates now collected by the assistant overseer ? Mr Owen Hughes said the Consolidated Orders stated that he was to attend to the churchwardens and levy and collect poor rates, hut there was nothing in the orders saying he was to collect either sanitary] lighting, or burial rates. Mr Dennis said the man appointed to collect the poor rates would no doubt collect the sanitar:- rate also, but the 'juestion was with regard to the burial and lighting rate. ? As far as the parish of Ruabon was concerned, having nothing to do with the board, it was a question whether they would allow the collector to collect these rates ? He thought they had better leave matters as they were at present. The Chairman said it gave ghini great pleasure to preside at that meeting, and as far as he could gather he thought their object a just one, viz., to defeat this proposition of Air Ffoulkes. He thought, as far as he .could see, that it was only fair the ratepayers of Ruabon should have some voice in the appointment of an officer whom they had to pay—(hear, hear)— because he did not think the management of that officer and the payment of his salary by the Board of (luardians, under the Local Government Board, could lie carried out as economically as it was at the present time. If the change was to be the means of obtaining for the ratepayers a substantial gain, then he should j advocate it, but the saving seemed to be only £ 20, if any at all, and he did not believe they could possibly have a better ofneer than Mr Wri?ht. who di-charged his duties faithfully and well. As far as his own experience went, matters in London w ere much more expensively managed than in the country, and were not so well done either, and he believed if they had! had the management of the drainage works in their own hands they would have been carried out equaHy well, and at half the money they ha? cost (applause). He thought, therefore, they would act wisely in tl retaining the services of the assistant overseer in their own hands. The Chairman then put the following resolutions, which were unanimously agreed to First That this meeting strongly disapproves of the; motion brought forward before the lit);Il.tl of (itiardians for the purpose of substituting rnion collectors to be appointed by the guardians instead of assistant oveiseers, now nomin- ated by the ratepayers. Second-That this meeting considers such proposal as an unjust attempt to deprive the ratepayers of an old custom and legal riiflit to elect their own parochial officers. Third- That this meeting considers that no adequate reason has been assigned for such a course, or any sub- stantial advantage shewn to accrue to the ratepay* ers by such radical changes. Fourtli -That it would lie unfair to dismiss the present assistant overseers for the sake of so small a savins as the duties left < unprovided for by such changes, such as assessiii" new property, le-assessing old, and several other duties, will cost more in the end than the saving proposed, and perhaps i necessitate a new appointment of all officer for those dnties. Fifth-That thepr(-st-nt!trr:m?ctn;.nt f. t|le l'.(m',f the rates is considered satisfart.ry to the rate i "tlon (,f I' l\ f" that the overseers cannot justly ).J ).(;),),,s. ￼ ￼ th" due and faIthful performance "f duties of t).?
