Harrison, Witliy, Humphreys, Morgan, Morris, J. Jones, and Ellis Jones. The Clerk read a letter received from Mr Griffiths, Tespectmg the question, discussed at the previous :Board, whether the connecting of the pipes from the main to the Smithfield was included in the Smithfield contract. Mr Griffiths said that Mr Moore was bound by the gpecicfiatione, to connect the Snrthfiela pipe -with the main, and that it was his duty te know thaS ,When he entered into the contra, t. i After some conversation, The Mayor said it was of no use discussing this ques- on any longer. It was evident the contractor must connect the pipes from the Smithfield with the mains in Severn-street. THE PRITATZ DRAINAGE. I Mr J. Jones (of Broad-street, grocer,) appeared to -eomplain that the privies connected with his houses in Bigh-street were in a disgusting condition, owing, he aaid, to the defective construction of the works by Mr Moore. It was remarked by several members of the Board that the defective supply of water misrht account for the Hthy condition of the places in ques ion. Mr Harrison considered that private drainage should :Not be connected with the main unless a proper supply cf water was put on at the same time. U'r Morris said that there WaI not a Huh of water in 'be mail' to carry away the sewage, Mr Huraphreys remarked that six weeks or two ???? th.. "'? I"ld aw<? since Mr Dymond cOl&demnÑ the main water pipes, and ordered them to be rejointed; and the owners of property would not construct their private works till they saw whether Mr Dymond a order was to be carried out. Mr Moore had not rejomted the pipes, and, Mr Humphreys wanted to know why he had not. It was high time to come to some understanding with Mr Moore. Mr Humphreys gave notice that at the next meeting he should move that Mr Moore be in- structed by the Board to rejoint the pipes at once, ac- conling to Mr Dymond's instructions. It was also arranged that Mr Dymond should be com- municated with on the subject, and an extract from a letter of Mr Dymond's to the following effect was read That the extent of the remedial works should be decided as the works went on. The Mayor remarked thit Mr Dymond had a report every week from the inspector, and would come down to the Board with a recommendation respecting the reme- dial works. The Mayor thought it very desirable to make an order that no privy should he connected with the main sewer without a supply of water being put on at the same time, and also to order that all such places which had bee I connected should be properly supplied with water. 'ihe i thj question was, how far could they make such an order with reference to private drainage which was al- ready connected. The Clerk said that if a nuisance was created the Board might order private persons to get a supply of water. Mr Humphreys moved that no private drainage be connected with the main sewer unless the water be put on at the same time. Mr Morris would second the motion. Mr Withy moved that in cases where nuisances exist- ed in connection with private drainage, notice be given that water must be put on. A fresh motion, containing both motions, was then put to the meeting and carried. Mr Parker remarked that lie had engaged Mr George Lewis to lay down his water pipes, and he believed the work would be done at a quarter the cost of Mr Moor's, and be doubly effectual. THE EARL OF POWIS AND THE BOARD.-At the sug- gestion of Mr Humphreys, the Clerk was directed to draw up a draft agreement with the Earl of Powis res- pectin" the supply of water from the Black Pool.
