-I THE NEW MAYOR'S INAUGURAL ADDRESS. IT is something new in the history of our cor- porate borough to hear our chief m gUtrate, the moment he has become the occupant of the civic chair, recommend sewenixe, water works, the purchase of the Market Hall, and the construc- tion of a Siritlifield. Former Mayors have doubtless had these objects as much at heart as Mr. Dickenson, but then they never ventured to make them part of their inaugural address, nor indeed did they dare to dilate upon them during any period of their mayoralty as our rewly appointed Mayor did on Saturdaj last. If we wish to improve the condition of the poor we must have drainage-if we wish to have a proper supply of water we must have water works-if we wish to have clear, clean, and welt.ordered streets, we must have the Market Hall and a Smithfield-these were the senti- ments uttered by our new mayor, a few minutes after his election, to every one of which we beg to add our hearty Amen. We had long ago liegan to think that these were themes only to be broached before the commissioner when we Were asking lor the Charter, then to be put on the shelf, and there to be left undisturbed, with the exception of being bken down occasionally 'by the reds and used as scarecrows for pre- senting those awful white cormorants from epproaching too near the precincts of the Coun- cil Chamber. "The whites' want to ruin the town with water works," was a favourite cry even at the last election. "The 'whites' want to give seven thousand pounds for the Market Hall" Was another cuckoo note that you heard in every quarter. Hardly has the turmoil of the election passed away ere we have these very measures strongly urged upon us from the civic chair, and that by a gentleman who was elected a Coun- cillor on the "red" list, and was made Mayor when there was a red majority in the Council. Like 3many others, we were greatly surprised at the enlightened policy expounded to the Council by the new Mayor, but we were not more surprised than pleased. We were prepared to hear from a gentleman of Mr. Dickenson's intelligence and social position something very different to the Visual obstructive policy advocated by the "reds," and for that reason we were anxious that he should be placed in the position which he now occupies twelve months ago, but certainly we were not prepared for the programme that he unfolded to the astonished red" aldermen and councillors pt the day of his election. We were the more delighted with the inde- pendent course chalked out for himself by Mr. Dickenson, because the measures he recommends for the adoption of the Council have all along received our cordial advocacy and support. We have sometimes been hard upon the Council on account of the do-nothing policy they were pursuing, but we never said anything half so severe about them as to sum up their four years' labours by asserting that all they had done was to clear Hope-street of the carts on a market day and quietly place them in Queen-street. This is a little wholesome truth, however, that they will find some difficulty to gainsay. The sweeping of the streets can hardly be placed to their credit, because it is an operation that went on betore we had a Town Council. Our readers may be curious to know how our "red" represen- tatives received these unpalatable truths. We have great pleasure, therefore, in informing them that they swallowed the leek with amazing resignation—even Mr. Rogers and Manuel Jones %vete dun:b the former uttered not a word against the purchase of the Market Hall, and the latter ventured not a syllable m favour of his pet pump scheme, with which the Council at one time was well nigh bored to death. The adage that"* circumstances alter cases was wonder- fullyerified on Saturday last, when the "reds listened so meekly to, and, apparently, agreed BO entirely with, plans which had they proceeded from the mouths of Mr. Edgworth or Mr. Painter would have been denounced as selfish, reckless, and ruinous. For ourselves, we care not a rush what party, or what individual, is instrumental in conferring upon us the benefits foreshadowed by Mr. Dickenson, so we get them. Still in the face of so much perversity, we cannot help exclaining- "Tis strange what a difference there should be 'Twixt twiddle-dum and twiddle-dee." We sincerely trust that the tacit approval given to all these excellent measures on the first of November will be followed up by vigorous action in the course of the present year. There is no reason in the world why there should be a day's delay in carrying out any of these im. provements. Even that bug-hear- —tte purchase of the Market Hal!—is a measure that might be carried out to-morrow with great benefit to the town, and without sacrificing the interests of any one. The de!ay thai has taken place on this question is a gross injustice to the ratepayers, a* it has beer. sliowu ov_; over tba* a luuxi-oiuc income üdglll be realised bv the transaction, to say nothing of the savb-g of the large rental that we are now compelled to pay for '?•» Gir-ld!ia!l, an* the tiir,)veire)it that would resu i to the iowii by the clearing of the struts. Tue sanatory question is in a fair way of receiving its due meed of attention. Mr. Rawlinson has been formally retained to carry out a proper system of drainage—this once accomplished, there will no longer be the shadow of an excuse for the festering mud which is now to be found, not only in our courts and alleys, but too often in the public streets. But sewerage without a plentiful supply of water will be but a very half-and-half measure, indeed it is questionable whether the remedy would not in some respects be worse than the disease. A Smithfield wouli also be a great improvement to the existing state of things, and we are disposed to think that the plan for obtaining one recom- mended by our new Mayor is quite feasible. We thank him most cordially for the manliness and candour which pervade his inaugural address, and we hope that his election really is the foreshadowing ot a better state of things.
SUMMARY. MR. DISRAELI made his first public appearance on Thursday since the prorogation of Parlia- ment. The occasion was the annual meeting of the Oxford Diocesan Church Building Society, at Alyesbury. The right hon. gentle- man's s peech was, of course, confined to ecclesiastical topics. Upon the church-rate question he advised emphatically a policy of no compromise." The clergy, he argued, ought to uphold the rate in its integrity. The anti-church-rate party will no doubt be very happy to fight the battle upon this ground. Mr. Disraeli approves of the course which Convo- cation had agreed to pursue in the matter of the Essays and Reviews." Two vacancies have been caused on the Libetal side of the House of Commons by the demise of Mr. T. S. Duncombe and Mr. J. H. Foley. The first-named gentleman sat for Hertford from 1824 to 1832, and for Finsburf from 1831 to the period of his death. He was an earnest advocate of triennial parliaments and the ballot. Mr. Foley represented Droitwich from 1821 to 18-34, aitd has sat for East Wor- cestershire since 1847. lie was opposed to church-rates and in favour of a gradual extension of the suffrage. John Nicholas, the private soldier who shot his sergeant at Aldershott on the 6th inst., was examined at Odiham on Tuesday last. It appears that the ball passed completely through the unfortunate man's body, and that he now hes in an extremely dangerous state. A witness who saw the occurrence having given evidence the prisoner wis committed for trial. Same alarm appears to have been caused by the discovery of another loaded rifle. It has been ajjain and agtin pointed out that these tragedies and the apprehensions to which they naturally give rise, can only be effectually checked by depriving the soldiers of their ammunition. On Wednesday, the leading members of the Ballot Society held a conference in London with the representatives of various reform associations. Resolutions were passed urging that the Ballot should be brought prominently forward at every election that the co-operation of reform asso- ciations in the good work should be specially invited and that the attention of the reform conference which is about to meet at Leeds should be earnestly directed to this point. Sir Robert Peel appears to have come into collision with Archbishop Cullen. The right rev. prelate alluded to him in no very compli- mentary terms in his recent pastoral letter, and there is also a report that he woe not at home to Sir Robert when the latter called at his house. Be this as it may, the Sec- retary for Ireland, when at Londonderry, on Wednesday, tools occasion to criticise the Archbishop's conduct towards him in very severe terms. He referred apparently to the placarding of the walls of Sligo with copies of the pastoral letter. The arrangements in connection with the contemplated Reform Conference at Leeds, are, it is understood, complete. The delegates will (lleet in the Town Hall on Monday next, for the purpose of discussing the various subjects upon which it is desirable to evoke public opinion. The demonstrative meeting will be held on the following day, when several members of the House of Commons will take an active part in the proceedings. At a banquet held in Birmingham on Satur- day evening, at which severar members of the House of Commons were present, one of the speakers (Mr. Hornblower), in responding to The Army, the Navy, and the Volunteers," indiscreetly observed, on behalf of English- men." that they would not ask the Emperor of the French for peace, but they would make him give it. This after-dinner" declaration was instantly disavowed by the Mayor on behalf of the assembly, and after an address from the French consul, who remarked that he had been sent to Birmingham on a peaceful mission-to carry out the provisions of the Anglo-French Treaty—the health of the Emperor was drunk amid applause. Some time ago the evidence of a person was rejected in the county-court of Rochdale, on the ground that she disbelieved in the existence of a Supreme Being and in a future state of rewards and punishments. The witness in question appealed to the Court of Exchequer against the decision of the judge, and on Tuesday the case was argued before the Lord Chief Baron and three of his colleagues. Mr. Crau- furd, M.P., appeared for the plaintiff, and in a very able speech contended that her want of religious belief ought not to have debarred her from the exercise of her civil rights. The Lord Chief Barpn, in dismissing the appeal, based his judgment upon the form of the oath, which involved the recognition of a God. The judge, he said, could not allow her to take an uath which was utterly opposed to her avowed opin- ions, and they (the learned judges) could not grant the relief which the Legislature had withheld. His lordship admitted that the case had never been argued before.
PAUPERISM IN WALES AND THE WES r MIDLANDS. The return issued by the Poor Law Board this week completes the monthly series for the quarter ended Michaelmas, 1861, during which the number of persona receiving relief in Englaad and Wales decreased from 816,442 in the last week of June to 800,983 in t!ie first week in September, and this rose gradually to 807,473 in the list week of the quarter. Compared with the corresponding quarter or last yeir, however, there was an increase of 5-56 per cent. and in the Nortb.

I THE LATE REV. D. W. JONES, HOLYWELL. I In our obituary for this wetk our readers will per- ceive an announcement of the demise of the above reverend gentleman, which occurred awfully suddtc, at his residence, Brynford Grove, Holywell. Mr Jones was a native of Cardiganshire, and was trained to the ministry, being a member of the Ibn- grekatiot,al body from his very yonth. The greater portion of his early years were occupied in scholas- tic training, and after a long course in the anademy at Neuadd-lwyd, conducted by the Rev. Thomas Phillips, D.D., he removed to Botherham College, where he stayed the lJual term, under the presi- deniy of te Rev. W. H. Stowell, D D. In 1833, when a student at Kotherham, he re- ceived a unanimous invitation to become pastor of the congregational chnrch, worshiping at Chapel- street Chape', Holywell, to take more particularly I the oversight of the English portion of the ohuich, and the lie?. Edis Hughes, the Welsh. Somefe* I years itterwards a division took place which caused g Mr flu-lbes and his partizaus t) leave, and tho* his stay was short, Mr Jone3 remained the faithful pas- ter of his charge for upward s of twenty-seven years, "spending, and willing to be spent" in hill Diviue Master's service. He was a highly accomplished scholar, post-eising a vigorous inttllect, and an extensile knowledge, which lendered him an agreeable and instructive companion and yet as humble and unissuming as a child. In his character were beautifully blended together,—tl e gentleman, (he scholar, and the chris- tian. He always lived the spirit of the seutimeut of returning good for evil," and With patience bearing wronp, but offering none; Since every man is free to loo<e his own." (I Soon after his ciming to reside in Holywell, he prepared several young inf n for college, who are I nowemineut ministers, and in 1841 he commenced a commercial academy, in connection with which he kept one of Dr Daniel Willia us's enio A el schools I np to the time of his death, and his name will long remain as "familiar as a household word" in many families. He was appointed one of the secretaries of the North Wales auxiliary to the London miesionary society, and sole secretary to the British and foreign Bible Society, aod on whose broad and nrlll plat- forin he will he missed as a faithful a Ivocate of Bibl i bawb o bobl y byd." On the formation of the British society for the pro- pagation of the gospel among the Jews, a branch society was established at Holywell, and Vlr Jones appoint,a its secretary. He was also during his residence in this town, a manager of the Holywell Saving's Bank. Iu him all institutions found a waroi eupp irter and a liberal subscriber, during life, aud in his dlath the poor have lost a friend. Ou Thursday morning, the 7th inst., he had a fit of apoplexy, and after au illness of tea minutes, lie was removed from his scene of usefulues, his spirit flad to glory, where it now shines in the brightness of his Saviour's image. I 1 THE FUNBRAL. I On Tuesday last a large concourse met to pay I him their last tritute of respect, when after suitable addresses had been deliveied in the chape', a proces- sion was furme(I in the tollowicg urder: The ministers of the ton u aud neigbbuurhood.-The scholars of deceased's school aiid old scholars.—The hearse bearing the body-aud his relations and friends fol- lowing in a long train. The procession moved through the town, all the inhabitants showing their respect by partially closing their establishmeuts, the blinds being drawn down upon every window, and wended its way to Zion Chapel Cemetery, when a touching and t'uthful oration was dtlivered by the Rev. Thomas Roberts, Llaurwst (formerly a pupil of the deceased), alter which his lemains were depo- sited in a vault to await fiesouud of t he la-t ti italp. The ministera who took part iu ths ceremouies were the Rev. O. Owens, Khes-y-cae; ltev. Jobn Jonep, Holywell, Rev. H. Pa,h, blostya; and the Rev. it. Evans, Gteeutield, &c. | OVERTON. m I CONCERT.-On Monday last an Amateur Concert took place at the Bowling green Inn, pjrformed by the mem- bers of the Overton Cricket Club, expressly for the benefit of Mr C. Clifford, Umpire, and its success in every p)int of view was of a moat satisfactory character. First, as to the number of visitors which exceeded the moit sanguine expictations of his friende, iu fact it was t.uly and literally a bumper. Secondly, we hive great pleasure in stitIng that the p!!rformxn,;c grcat aa lo" faction to the audience from the commence neat to the finish. Where all did their best it is next to being in- vidious to particularize. But we cannot refrain from noticing "the makmg up" of Mr H. L^a as a young lady, which was one of the best assumptions of the fem- inine gender that we ever heard by a masculine. Mr J. Pembrey's banjo combined with his singing, was all that could possibly be desired, and the same may be said with reference to Mr S. Allen's hornpipe in the costume of a Highlander, which dress suited him admirably. Bones played by Mr W. Lea, met with the praise it so rich- ly deserved, Mr Morgan in conjunction with Mr Green- wood were valuable throughout, there were several encores during the evening, and at the conclusion the company retired highly gratified and satisfied. We are informed that it is their intention to give another in a few weeks for the benefit of the poor, and with suoh a benevolent feeling in view, there cannot be a doubt thlt it will meet with such patronoge, as will insure a good round sum for the object intended. I MOLD. LABCENy.-Mary M'Cullocb, a servant girl at Mr Roper, Plas-teg, was brought before Mr Pemberton, on Tuesday last, charged with stealing several articles be- longing to her said master. Mr Roper sa-d. that in consequence of an intimation he had received he sent for the prisoner on the seventh instant to his study, and charged her with stealing his property, and that he re- quired her to open her boxes immediately in his presence. He then took Mrs Roper and the coachman's wife to the prisoner's bedroom where her boxes were kept-that upon their being opened by the prisoner herself (two of which were locked) be found a quantity of sugar and tea, a jar of preserves, a large number of cigars, 4 small composition candles, 14 pieces of wax candles, and 4 pieces of soap. Police Constable John Dew, having arrived at Plas-teg, the prisoner was handed over to his charge, and on the following mornin on examining the prisoner's trunk at Mold, in her pre- sence, he found 20 more cigars, a pair ot boots, (which were identified by Mr George Roper as his property) a nail brush, two large wax candles, and a toilet over marked on one of the corners with "Trevor Roper-6 -1851"-The prisoner on being asked after the de- positions were read over to her whether she wished to say anything in answer to the charge stated.—The four caudles I did take out of Mr George Roper's bed room and a jar of preserves I took from Mrs Roper. These boots I have never seen them till I was in Mold on Tues- day morning. About the toilet cover, the servants must have put it in my box in mistake. The small pieces of candles I had some fiom the butler and some I had be. fore I come to Pias-teg. I bought the pieces of soap myself. I got the cigars in Liverpool which were found by Mr Roper, and the others were given me to do as I liked with them.- When the prisoner was formally committed, she sobbed bitterly and the prosecutor seemed to feel deeply at witnessing her distressed appearance, as it appears that he had had an excellent character with her. She was subsequently admitted to bail. BBEACH OF THE PISACE.-Bilen Simon, the wife of William Simon, of this town, was charged by police constable John Williams, with being drunk and disorderly on the previous night in High-street. Mr Lewis Everett, Canton House, was called as a witness to sub- stantiate his statement. The defendant had nothing to say for herself. She was ordered to find two sureties to keep the peace for fourteen days, but as she could not procure bail she was committed. MOLD MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY.—The mem- bers of this excellent and flourishing society met as usual on Wednesday evening last, at the Market Hall, when the chair was occupied by Mr Gordon, the vice- prusideut, Mr Thomas Jones, having introduced most ably the question Are spiritual manifestations genuine," on the previous Wednesday evening for discussion, the president, Mr W. T. Thomas, got up after a few intro- ductory remarks by Mr Gordon, and delivered an argu- mentative address, on the negative side ot the question. After the close of the address the chairman made a few comments on what had been said, and then invited the members generally to speak their mind openly on this novel subject. Mr Thomas Jones made a few observa. Lions in the affirmative, and Messrs. Parkinson, Lester, and Ellis Edwards on the affirmative, and after thejj Mr Thoiuas replied. When the subject was given to the opinion of the meeting it turned out to be that nearly all the members Were on the negative. We are glail t) find that Mr Lester intends giving a public lectute on Wednesdiy eveiling next, on the happy subject A 1 t Ai.oi.u- ) BRYMBO. I TEMPERANCE AIEBTINO.—Mr Lawrence Gam", on Wednesday evening last, delivered one of his interesting lectures upon tue Teuij cruncc question, or rather in- leinoerauoc," in the fiiLIzll Sebvois. Although th n eatu r Wis very uiifavo.,r,itjl,, to •.•xpyct a g > n attend- ance, yet thtj uu-uber uiu?t .roa ioge.bt.rf/asra-er H.Uor I than usual. The meeting commenced by singing a Tem- perance hymn, given out by Mr Gane. Mr G. Denholm proposed that Mr W. H. Darby should take the ohair, which was seconded and carried unanimously. Mr Dirby, in a few remarks of good Bound advice to the working men, impressed upon them the folly of spending their hard earned money in a way which was so very inimical to their best interest, and which was in its con- sequenco far worse than throwing it away. Mr Gane spuks for about an hour and a quarter in the most inter- esting manner. He is most happy and striking in his nitrations and "instances," with a wit ever ready at hand to please his andience in the m 1St amusing manner. He very impressively taught the great and important question of Temperance Returra, and finished his leoture j amid t enthusiastic ehe M. CHURCH RATES.—\ mesting was held here on Thurs- ) d"y last, for the purpose of obtaining a church rite. There wis a rather large attendance of ratepayers. Mr. Churchwarden Clayton state! that about X80 was re- quired for the use of the church, but be furnished no par- ticulars to the vestry. After eome discussion a rate of 4d. 1n the pouud was proposed and seconded. Messrs. W. H. & C. E. Dafby urged the members of the church to raisa this sum without resorting to a compulsory rate. Mr. Clavton made a long speech about the importance of maintaining the supremacy of the church, and expres- I sed his belief that a rite was a most desirable and just way of raising the necessary fuids Mr. churchwarden M'Outcheon expressed a strong obj-j,:tii)n t) a r-te, and said he tound people, when they were asked, quite will- in to subscribe towwards the expenses of tho church. Mr Edward Dtviea then proposed that the money re- quired be raised hy a voluntary subscription-this was seconded by Mr. S t uuol J ones, and on being put to the meeting, a great majority of hands wns held up in its fa- vour, and only some three hands in favour of a rate, which was consequently I lqt.
I PRESENTATION OF A TESTIMONIAL TO EDWARD LEWIS RICHARDS, ESQ., I COUNTY COURT JUDGE OF THE NOBLTII WALES DISTRICT, AND CHAIRUAN OF THE FLIVSHIRK QUARTER SESSIONS I (From the Rhyl Record") On Friday last, the 8th instant, a large number of those gentlemen who more than two years ago subscribed towards presenting E. L. Richards, Esq., with his portrait, met together at the Paraie Hotel, Rhyl, to present the same It is an exceedingly well designed, full length, and life-like portrait, executed by the well-known German artist, Mr Drantsheoid. The painting cost 150 guineas, and the frame 30 guineas. The company at 5 p.m. partook of a splendid dinner, over which T. E 'gworth, Esq., of Wrexham presided; and F. Muspratt, Esq Flint, occupied the vice-chair. Among the company we noticed, Johnson Roberts, Esq Chester; H. Pugh, Esq., Llanfyllin j Rev. Hugh Mor- gan, Rhyl; Jjhn Churion, Esq.; R. E. Williams, Esq Rhyl; Dr. Turner; Dr. Roberts, St. Asaph Thomas K. Roberts, Esq., St. Asaph Rev. Thomas Willia ns, St. George Lieutenant Sleight, Rhyl; Peter Browne, Esq. L. R. Morgan, Esq, Vlorlan; J. Meredith Williams, E<q., Denbigh; S. Williams, Esq., Holywell; Peter Ellis Gyt >n, Esq Flint; James Rees, Esq., Cirnarvon Mr P. M. Evans, Holywell; Mr Davies, Holywell; Captain Hartle, Thomas Winston, Esq*, Dr. Edwin Jones, S. Perks, sen., Samuel Perks, Esq., jun., Mr J. Williams, ironmonger, Mr E. Powell Jones, Mr Edward Vaughan, Mr Jones, Dudley Arms Hotel; Mr Robert William-, baker, Riyl, &c. The dinner being over, the Chairman gave the follow- ing toastb The Queen and the Royal Family." "The Bishop of the Diocese, and Clergy of all Denomiuations;" to which the Rev. H. Morgan responed, The Army and Navy to which Captain Hartle responded. Tne Members of the County and Buroughe." The Chairman in proposing the toast of the evening said, that they were assembted together not upon an oi- dinary occasion, and holding the office he was called upon to discharge that evening, he would do his best. ittiterriug to the sixteen years the County Courts have been in operation, he observed that Mr Richards was but very little known in North Wales, but that he was fuily prepared to discharge the duties devolving upon him as a County Court Jllde-the result was a sufficient proof of it. He said that great advantages have been con I erred upon the country by the establish incut of County Courts, which increase every year, and that Mr liicoards held up the rights of the legal profession, dis- couittaincing the interference of so called agents (Hear, hear.) In (it-fining the duties of a County Coutt Judge, the speaker named the disputes w!iica oitau occur uc. tweeu the po .r Welsh collier and his master. The shop- ktieper who kcep his accouutuu such hieroglyphic style that it made it most difficult to understaud them, would bring his books before him also, he had the oiiruime Uisput-a co a JlJSL. liui, ana Alt Ltit;t4f4i (IS Uisciaargeii all these duties so as to give general satisfaction ? (Cheers.) Y s, and the poor Welshman is satisfied that he gets fair play, whilst having the privilege ot stating his case before the JuJgo in his own lai-uage without interpretation. (Hear, bear.) He observed that therd were another class 01 men to whom Mr Richard* evinced very great regard in the manner he treated them—tney were tbe advocates. He assisted them in their difficulties, and they always submitted to him upon disputable points. Youug gentlemen practicing at the bar in this circuit have far greater advantages than those who practised bj- fore the establishment of these courts, owing to tho les-ons thfy get from Mr Richards (dear, and Cheers.) The speaker then referred to the advantages the magistrates of this couuty derive from having such an accomplished I lawyer as .Vlr Richards to preside over criminal c ibes, aud ) aho referred to the onerous duties he discharges. Tailing a general view of Mr Richards' labours during the last sixteen years, he said tuat whoever should preside over tie courts he formed, as hia successor would not iiad naif Lhe trouble he had —that the duties of such a one woud be comparatively easy. His judgments were hardly ever dis- puted, and only three appeals had been made against his decisions during the whole time he had been Judge for this district, and two of those came to nothing. (Pro- longed cheers.) The chairman then turned towards Mr Richards, pointing out the splendid portrait, and iu tne name of 2UO subscribers desired that he could accept ol it as a token of their esteem and regard. (Tremendous and prolonged cheering.) Mr Richards in reply expressed the great emotion he felt at the kindness and respect shown to him that even- ing—that his heart was too full to give utterance to his real feelings. In returning thauka, he could not help re- fleeting upon the circumstances and proceedings of the last fifteen years. Having referred to law changes, and hav- ing detailed the occurrences connected with the estab- lishment of the County Court in North Wales, as well as other etents in the course of 15 years he hai been Judge in this circuit; he observed that he had but very little difficulty in dealing with cases on account of per- sons committing peijury, two only have been committed for that offence, and one of those had degraded his country many years previous to his doing so. Respecting the portrait, that whether he would follow his profession, or lived iu retirement, he would always regard that tribute of their respest to him. He then resumed hia seat amidst tremendous and long cheering. In proposing the health of i'. Edgworth, Esq, the chair- man of the meeting, Esq., E. L. Richards, Esq., made very interesting remarks couneuted with the opening ot tue first County Couri in Wrexham. To which toast Mr Edgworth in reply said, that it at. forded him very great pleasure to attend—that he came from Oswestry that morning, and that he would have come that distance ten times over to show his regard to the gentleman they wished to honour that day. (Cneers). The next toast was the health of Mr Muspratt, who at. sisted the committee materially in bringing about that token ot respect to Mr Richards. Mr Muapratt briefly replied. Then the health of Air Drantsheoid, the artist who painted the poitiait. Rev. Thomas Williams, St. George, proposed the health of the Committee. Mr Samuel Williamson, the treasurer, responded, and said that the commitiee h)ped in a short tunj to have the pleasuie of presenting each subscriber with aa engraving irom the portrait. Mr P.

DIRTY STREETS AND ROADS. I To the Editor of the Denbighshire Adiertiser. I Sir,—Allow me a corner in your paper to complain of the dirty state of our streets and roads. Crescent Tetrace, on which so much money has been expended, is in a filthy state. and quite impassable for females,—also the Beast Market. There has been a quantity of building rubbish deposited on Erthig road now about four months, and the same in Poplar Road, which is also six inches deep in mud, and uothing has been done to remove it. The Will >w Road is now quite impassable and dangerous; in- deed, the whole of the roads within the borough are in a disgiaceful state of dirt aud filth the churchyard steps have not been cleaned for four months. I presume this must be the nominal way" of doing the work of the Borough, as I recollect that Councillor Evans said they only Wan ted a nominal" surveyor. If this is what he meant the sooner the better we go back to the old sys- tem of tov n-ibip surveyors, or employ a labourer-survey- or and call him the road man—not surveyor. I am, sir, I yours, &c., A LAUGH RATEPAYER. I
■■ i, —■ ■ i I THE MOLD PARISH CLERK. i I To the Editor of the Wrexham Advertiser. Sir,—A vaeaucy has occurred here by tne demise of the late Mr. J abn Pierce, in the clerkship of the parish. A most spirited contest is likely to take place for the above office; rumour says that there are three candidates already in the field, viz., Mr J. Hughes, treble siuger in Mold church, Mr J. Davies, (alias jolt* y Dwr) and Mr Ben. Powell, the ex-baptist. The odds are in f<»vuur of Mr J. Hugbes aa being one of the lea ling singers and a consistent churchman as well. John y Dwr, it is feared, is not perfectly weaned from the dissenting pap, as he at- tends their prayer meetings and takes part in their publio service, which will be a serious drawback against him, and as for Mr. Ben his retire uent so very recently from the Calviaistic body will be such a millstone to tiu neck tuat his frienlis are afraid he will be out of breath before had the race is over.

I SUNDAY EVENING LECTURES. To the Editor of the Wrexham Adoertiser. Sir, -1 nud in many of our large towns the usual lec- tures and services tor tae people are beiug revived, aud crowds tiock to listen. We use! to have duch tniugs io Wrexham, and I am at a loss t J kuo N wlty we caunot have ttaem a.Aain.

M.—The Bourse has been very firm and agitated, in consequence of the ifnancial changes announced in the Moniteur" of this morning. Rentes closed at 69f 60c., or t higher than vesterday. -C- THE FRENCH MINISTRY. The Temps" of this evening asserts that im- portant changes will shortly be made among the functionaries a of the high adminstration, that the powers of several ministers will be modified, and that a reorganisation of the Ministry of State may be expected. FRENCH FINANCIAL REFORMS. RETRENCHMENT AND PEACE. PARIS, Nov. 14.—The Moniteur of this morning con- tains decrees nominating M. Fould as Minister of Fi- nance, and VI. Focade de Laroquette, present Minister of Finance, to the post of Senator. The same journal also publishes a letter addressed by the Emperor to the Minister of State, wherein his Majesty approves of the financial programme drawn up by M. Fould, and acknowledges the necessity of confining the Budget within invariable limits. The Emperor continues The only efficacious means to attain this end is to re- solutely abandon the faculty which appertains to me of opening a fresh credit in the absence of the Chamber. I am determined to introduce changes, and the 8enattit I consutta which will be presented to the Senate on the 2nd December next will contain this resolution, and determine your Budget, and those of the ditierent M inistries, by large sections. In renouncing a right which equally appertained to the sovereigns, even con- stitutional ones, who preceded me, may I do a useful thi g towards ensuring the right administration of the finances. Faithful to my origin, I neither regard my prerogatives as a sacred deposit which cannot be touched, nor as a heritage from my ancestors which must be transmitted intact to my son. Elected by the people, and representing their interests, I shall always abandon without regret every prerogative useless for the good of the public, as I shall likewise preserve un- shaken in my hands all power which is indispensably for the tranquility and prosperity of the country."
