1-, Correspondence. I THE BRIGADE DEPOT. I SIR,-I see in your last issue that there is a rumour in Wrexham that the Brigade Depflt is going to be removed, but I suppose it is only talk. ]So doubt North Wales is a poor place for recruiting. I have noticed that the last three or four drafts we have had have been near'y all Englishmen. Whv not recruit in the lartre towns in South Wales ? Our battalion was first raised in Newport in South Wales. As the regiment is now, we ought to be called the London Fusiliers instead of th- Royal \V.ll'h, the best part of us belonging to that city.—I am, &c., „ ROYAL WELSH FUSILIER. Fermoy, Ireland, 13th Iarch, 1887. I HOW TAXES INCREASE. I SIR,-Kiiidly allow me a few words on a few sub- jects. as I read in your paper, that a chapel is to be built for the use of the inmates of the Workhouse and the expenses to be defrayed from the rates Is it not wiser first to give the inmates a little more food or a substantial nature, as they have already been trained to live on less than sixpence per day, than to go t.. the expense of providing a chapel, and there to make up the deficiency by giving them spiritual food; it is only a matter of creating a living for the clergy at the expense of the ratepayers. Can we not give the inmates a free Sunday, and, under some superin- tendence, allow them to go to any place of worship they please, and let every congregation greet them remembering the words of our Lord, "the poor ve have always with you." We have already a Fever Hospital, and very soon will have to adveitise for inmates. To make Wrexham perfect we require a Jubilee Asylum, which will prove a real public boon. We then will be enabled to select guardians out of this Institution, aId shall not wonder nor criticise if they spend recklessly public money and increase the rates —I am, &c L. LIVINGSTONE, Pentre Broughton. LAY HELP IN THE CHURCH. I SIlt,-I read with much interest Workingman's notes on this subject. I also strongly advocate lay help in our Church of England and Wales Work- mgman speaks very highly of a band of young men who are zealous Churchmen, and, as every true Churchman ought to be, church-workers, who give cottage lectures, &c. And one of the number even reads the lessons in church on Sunday. But this is not enough. » Workingman » is anxious the men of Brymbo should be allowed to be on similar lines to the men of Southsea and Brynteg, and should be privileged to take the same part in Church work. I certainly agree with Workingman," although I not know where these two prominent p!.ce. are, nor on the other hand am I acquainted with Brymbo. Let the men of Brymbo be privileged to assist their worthy pastor on similar lines to those of Southsea and Brynteg But I would ask "WorkinEman" what other part in addition to reading of the lessons can a layman take in the service (but as one of the congregation) of our Church-the Established Church of England and Wates-whether the church be situated in Southsea, Brynteg, or any other parish I throughout the Principality? Again, what does Workingman" mean by these young men being presented to the Bishop at the confirmation service for ordiiiatioii ? Does he wish that the Bishop should r authorise these men to read the lessor* alternately in preference to the churchwarden, or does he mean that the Bishop should ordain these men to the holy function of Deacon ?—1 aru, &c LA. T HELPEE. THE POSTAGE ON NEWSPAPERS AT HOME AND ABROAD. SlH,— II: the official correspondence you published last week -on the postal tariff-, of Canada and the mother country as retard* pattern and newspaper postage, Mr Raikes makes ct-rtain remarks on the Canadian tariff which are foundt-d on misconception or want of knowledge of a Kul ject which, politically and educationally, should interest eveiyone desirous of better political and general information as rt-gai-tis the large proportion of our feilow countrymen who are outside the towns. This can only be effected by a wider and cheaper circulation of the press by post, and on the lines of nearly every country in the world but our own. I have no doubt but that Mr Raikes quite Ve what he wrote when he remarked that, 4. with the exception of one or two minor matters, the postal advantages in Canada were far from beink greater and in some important respects much less than our own," but he has evidently not made himself acquainted with the following facts, which are in the last official report of liit3 co-official the Canadian Postmaster General, and detailed in the Canadian Postal Guide. I-That a rate, certainly of Id, takes a Canadian letter over half of the new world, that ia not only over the vast dominions itself, about as large as Europe, but over the whole of the United States, a far larger area than Europe. 2-That a half-penny postcard is to a buyer of one in Canada, as all over the civilised world, a half- penny, and not a penny as in this country now, it having been first issued at a half-penny for one or more. 3—That there is a wonderfully cheap Canadian pattern and small merchandise post, and that articles go by it of which we do not dream, what we formerly had having been taken away. That ihere is a half-penny letter post for letters dropped in Canadian postoffices, and taken out therefrom by the addressee. 5-That the registration fee is one-half the British rate, or a penny, causing such a uni versa l use, that in place of less than twelve millions registered as here, a proportion on Canada equai to twenty-two mi lions, or two for one English, are registered. 6—That there is a free newspaper post, not hampered with difficult or onerous conditions at all, or difficult to work, as Mr Raikes thinks, which circulates Canadian papers free to sub-ci-ib--rs millions on millions. both of journals and periodicals, not only over the dominion but over the United States. It not only does that, but sends British news- papers received in bulk from the mother country free from Canadian agents to every subscriber in Canada. In other word-, if the Daily News were sent to such agent, hy the thousand, to Qnebtc or Montreal, he could distribute them to Sul -ici-ibe- i all over the dominion free of postage. 7—That there is a magnificent system of franking public matter, blue books, &c., and all Parliamentary documents, all register of birth. deaths, and marriages, and agricultural reports, all books to and from the Parliamentary library, and all letters to and from members on Parliamentary busioess while it sits; which is unknown to the mother-country, a petition being the only free matter there. I could name other wonderful privileges in a country which does its postal work over nine millions of square miles of, half of it thinly peopled, country, sncw-clad for half the year, but cannot further presume on your space.—I am, fee., JAMES H.

HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS. Outward In 6 1 nities. -Before the discovery of these remedies many caese of sores, ulcers, &c,, were pronounced to he hopelessly incurable, because the treatment pursued tended to destroy the strength it was in- competent to preserve, and to exasperate the symptoms it was inadequate to remove. Holloway's Pills exert the most wholesome powers over the unhealthy flesh or skin, without debarring the patient from fresh air and exercise, and thus the constitutional vigour ia husbanded while the most malignant ulcers, abcesses and skin diseases are in process of cure. Bet'} Ointment and Pills make the blood richer and pure. instead of permitting it to fall into that poor and watery state so fatal to many labouring under chronic ulcerations.
I NORIH walks AND ITS BORDERS. I VIII. TTT',)- sai(i In a former note Oil n: û, that (ol. William 4alisbtirN was the most glorious character connected with the members of the family of his name who had occupied and owned that house, but there were others, good and bad, among his kindred, who should be noticed in these sheets. OWEN SALISBURY, for instance, who built-and I think endowed Ki;ft^ Chapel, wa, a quiet sort of man, whose life was far more devoted to religion* o servancee than it was to the cares, anxieties, and pleasures of the present evil world. A Romanist in fof/tfUar?lf l his sympathies naturally ran in the direction of a penitential life, for he loved Chri.«t, but he loved Hun only through the medium of the Church, and not an He was pourtrayed in Scripture. He believed in Him as God's peculiar and chosen Son, and doubt- less admittca, He was the exact image of the Father's person; but so far removed from our fallen humanity was this Christ-God in his esteem, he felt that none 01 us couia approach Him directly and live. That is a kind of faith which we of the reformed religion cannot understand but however mistaken it may be in fact, we dare not question its perfect reverence, its deep emotion, its holy spirit; and I can never there- fore think of this good man without admitting he was pure in all his thoughts, and pious in all his ways, although, he might have trusted more to Christ himself, and less to the Vir-in Mother's intercession with Him, when he abased himself in dust and in ashes before the Divine presence, in his deep anxiety to secure peace of conscience and pardon for his sins. I have in my possession a small oil painting of the Virgin and Child. painted by a mem- ber of his family, which, it is said, always hung in Air Salisbury's private room at RhQg, and looking at it now, as it hangs opposite to my own desk, I ask my- self if this particular unn, who valued ths picture for its subject, only, was no, in his own way, as worthy of my reverence and respect as any other member of his fainny could possibly be, however much he may have wandered from the forms ..f faith, which, in our eyes, constitute the visible signs of our membership in the true Church on earth ? His piety led him to put up the Rhdg Chapel, wherein he and his household might worship God in security in their own way, according to the Romish form. There an altar stood, and there the host was elevated and worshipped. But this very chapel became a sanctuary also, wherein the oppressed priests of the Catholic Church might find shelter, when the virulent spirit of their persecutors drove them out into the world as so many outcasts who deserved neither pity nor mercy, from men. We never have learnt and probahly never shall learn the lesson, that the persecution of the Saints does and always will become the seed of the Church. Owen Salisbury's kindred were Protestants, but they loved him none the less because he was a Papist, and in the case of his sister, DIANA SALISBURY, she loved him very fondly, and spent much of her time under his hospitable roof. She had lived much abroad, and had probably imbibed some taste for the pictorial displays which form so great an element in the ceremonial of the Komish Church in foreign lands but she had not abandoned her own faith, nor had she adopted the older one when, upon her return to Wales, she became a temporary member of her brother's household. But w hen staying there on one occasion a Father of the Church was in hiding at Rhtlg a charming and polished man, deeply religious, and devoted to his faith. Her pity was evoked on his behalf she spoke much to him, sat at his teet, as it were, to learn from his own lips some of the great mysteries of his faith and at last she herself became a convert to it. The seed which this good father had thus sown, under the persecuting pressure of the times, brought forth its fruit in the manner I have stated, and in due time Diana of RhUg became a Bister ot mercy at Bruges undo r a new name. She was 1.0 longer, of course, known to her Protestant relatives; and so wholly has she been blotted out from their records that I have failed to trace her name even in any of the later pedigrees of the Rhtlg family. It does not follow, however, that she found no home in their hearts, for indeed in an old letter shown to me from one from her nieces she is referred to in the most endearing terms as the "sweet aunt Diana, who has given up everything for conscience sake;" and in another letter she is spoken of as the dearest and sweetest angel that once added so much to the happi- ness of our home." In these two instances, we may see how brother and sister remained faithful to a sense of duty. They had to sacrifice much for God but surely no sacrifice of an earthly nature could be com- pared for a moment with the "everlasting weight of glory which was to follow a submissive devotion to the very highest calls of duty, and in a humhle obelienca to what they considered to be the will of God in relation to the salvation of their souls. In these enlightened times it is looked upon as a sign of mental weakness to pay any heed to the Gospel narrative as we find it revealed in the New Testament; but I am old-fashioned enough to dwell with pleasure —and I hope with some profit also—upon the beauti- ful stories we find within the sacred page of the Saviour'* intercourse with women. H"w touching is the Magdalene incident! How our hearts are moved when we see Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary" at the sepulchre, and that, at the very time when "the keepers thereof did shake with fear on beholding the angel of the Lord, who had descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door and fat upon it," they were at peace when the angel said to them, Fear not ye, for I know that y lIeek Jesus, which was crucified." Come, see the place where the Lord lay." The dear ones who had been weeping there, seeing the risen body had been stolen, hastened away with great joy at the angel's bidding, to tell the disciples, "The Lord is risen indeed," and as they went on their gladsome mission, they met him, we are told, and He said unto them. All hail! Be of good cheer, all is well, it is I, who was dead, but am now alive again." The women, with their great faith, never doubted for an instant that it was Jesus, for they came and held him by the feet and worshipped him. A woman's faith is a pearl beyond all price; and a good, faithful, virtuous woman's love is the greatest earthly gift God can bestow on any man just as a faithless woman's treachery is his greatest curse, when, alas, she has become the devil's own instru. ment to spoil a man's life on earth, and then probably to set him on the highway to eternal damna- tion after death. Diana Salisbury seems to me to he a perfect type of the good women we read of in Scripture. She may have been very mistaken in her views about human creeds and ceremonies, but hei sacrifice of herself to a sense of duty, casts about her memory a halo of excellence, which it would be unpardonable to ignore. I have therefore paid my humble tribute to her in this place, well assured in my own mind that, when the end comna, this daughter of Rhftg will be seen again in very close proximity to the Saviour whose servant she was when on earth, and whose meat and drink it was to do His will in all things. Pass we from Rhftg, on our way to Ruthin, and, in doing so, the traveller might find his reward if he just looked in upon the churchyard at Efenechtyd, where many of those Salisbuiies lie in their old graves awaiting th« summons which is to bring them back to life again. The RhUg and Bachymbyd families had intermarried many and many a time between the days of Pyers Salisbury and these of his descendant Owen, of the firmer place. In one of these graves lie the remains of a mongrel daughter of both houses, whose mental qualities far outweighed her moral ones. Were she alive to-day, she would he ranked among the advocates of Women's Rights, and of the number of the hard and dry supporters of what we now call the Moral Socialists." I have laughed over her vagraries many a time, and can well remember the latp John Finch, of Liverpool—a socialist of the Robert Owen school- dwelling upon her excellencies to me, as if she had been his constant companion and friend She taught-that the BiMe, though a beautiful story book, was n thing hut a story book that under the old dis- pensation the giving, and taking, in marriage was never thought of that men selected their mates out of the fittest" they met with, and lived with them happily and usefully without the intervention of any Priest, OR the blessing of any Church. That the God of the Bible was a myth, and had been manufactured by the economists for purposes of their own, and that, as might have been expected, the generations of men at once degenerated into a puny race so soon as unions were made to order, and the necessitTes of parents led them to sell their daughters to the highest bidder. Out of that high religion of hers, she deduced, that husbands owed no moral duties to their wives, nor wives to their husbands and that the theory of parental love was a sham that men and women should be permitted by law to live together without any ceremony, and that their children should be sent out to nurse, on the old foster system that boys and girls should mix together without restraint, and that no law should be permitted to interposo its authority over them, or their parents, in the selection of teachers, and guides, who should only be ex. pected to grow up manly men, and brave women. It follows, of course, that she would have drank in deeply of the modern spirit of her co-religionists of our own day, who think it no dis- grace to scoff at revolation, and who tell each other to eat and drink as they list, for to-morrow toey die. and there end the story of their existence, There is nothing new under the sun" truly, for this masculine Welsh woman put into words the very sermons which so many effeminate men of our day put into wods, in a more cultured fashion. She was bold as her own li n, but she lacked the tenderness of her race. She was as daring as Henry the Lion himself, but was she as faithful to the truth as his English descendants were known to have been, ever since they settled on our soil ? Faith- ful to her own wicked will. she doubtless waq, but when we have said that, have we not said all that can be said about her moral qualities ? If her theory was false, and she rises atrain from her grave at Efenechtyd churchyard, what will her fate be then ? Is it likely that Diana "f R!>ft^, and this mongrel kin of hers will he found s id!> by side then ? I dare n..t predicate anything, for as cha'itv thinketh no evil, and is dt dared to be one of the chicfest virtues of our faith, I the veil over the weakness of this daugh- ter of Eve. nod will only say in conclus'on, she stands alone among her sisterhood as the one Socialist of this great family. Happily she left no children behind her, aT-(i a!. though her dust is in close proximity to that of pr<-ud. but simple, Ffoulk Salisbury, once an alderman of Chester, and its sheriff, whati Jainpe the First visited that City, and who must have known her as one of his own kin, he mu t have thanked his God many a time that that he had not a drop of her hi«od in his veins, for blood" counted for much with friend Ff u!k. qm all your readers can see for themselves, if they will onlv read the certificate of "ventility," which he paid Randle Holme. the Cheshire Herald, to prepare for him to show his descent from the Dukes of Bavaria and the old Adam of Denbigh Castle, who had brought their blood with him to the Vale of Clwyd I end this note with him, and copying out of another rec rd, I had better add, he was horn at Evenychtyd, near Ruthin, being the second son of Henry Salis- bury, who was son of Piers, who was son of John, of Bachymhyd, son of Thomas Salisbury, hen of Lleweni." Such a descent should have satisfied our Sheriff, but it did not. for he went back through all his generations to Adam, the (Welsh) progenitor of his race, who in Edward the First's reign had settled at Denbigh.

PR L" D £ S 11A L as.: UK N'C COMPANY. We publish th'a week in our advertising columns, the tlllrty-eightll annual report of this company, from which it appears that upon a shareholders' capital ot .C80,029 -io enormous a business has been built up that the ordinary branch funds now amount to over a million and three-quartern, the industrial brar.ch funds to close upon five millions, and :Jle investments of the company to nearly seven millions sterling. A n..tewo thy feature of the report is the detail with which information is given as to the invested funds. Over a million sterling is represented by Consols and New Three per Cents., ne-trly a million and a half is secured upon municipal and other rates, a slig'.tly smaller sum unon ground rents and feu duties. 2859,476 on railway and other debentures, £ 614,169 on freehold and leasehold property, and E577,740 on mortgages. In addition to showing in this general way how the funds are distributed, the company has issued a supplement to the report, stating in detail the various investments under the above and other heads, and so placing both shareholders and the as- sured in a position to form an opinion as to the security of the funds. The company haa now over seven millions of poiioies in force, assuring the enormous sum of the weekly income from premiums exceeds three millions per annum. The actuary states tiie present value of the sums assured in the industrial branch at 32.i millions, the present value of future pure premiums at 281 millions, leaving a net liability of about 41 millions, or about half a million less than the accumulated funds in the industrial branch of the business. In the ordinary branch the policies in force at the close of the year numbered 85,089, as>urinc, with bonus, 10i millions and producing an annual income of 4:407,360. In thd past five years the premium income from both branches has risen from £ 2.193,756 to £ 3.472,911, and the assets of the company from 1:2,580,002 to 1:6,811954. This, it must be admitted, is very re- markable progress.

IRELAND v. WALES. ML, I» iliu annual Association match between these two countries was played at Belfast, in the presence of about 4.000 spectators. The weather, though cold, was very fine, and the ground was in splendid condi- tion. There were no less than five changes in the composition of the Welsh team, R. Roberts, Townsend, Hunter, Hughes, and Turne takin-, the placeq of Trainer, Powell, Burke, H.Jone??d W. L'wis; Traine Sherrard (Limavady), acted as substitute on the Irish side f..r Hamilton (Dublin University.) Wales won the toes and decided to play with the wind in their face and the sun at their back. Play for the first five minutes was confined to Welsh terri- tory, and the Hibernians had two shots at the goal' hut they went wide. Browne next had a good chance, but Jones saved, and the Welsh forwards getting the ball invaded the Irish ground. Their stay, however, was short, Watson and Moore doing the needful, and again the visitors acted on the defensive, but a well. combined rush resulted in Browne passing to Stan- field, who easily shot the first goal for Ireland fifteen minutes after the commencement. An invasion of Irish quarters followed from a kick out, but Devine cominsr to the rescue, the leather was worked down to the Welsh goal, where Stanfield and Browne tried hard to score, but only a corner resulted, and it was abortive. The Welsh ofrwards now brought the leather up a short distance, but Watson returned it, and the Irishmen obtained another corner which Gibb turned into a goal. This, being off-side, was dis- allowed. After some rather even play, Browne had a good run down the centre, ending by putting in another goal for Ireland just as the half-time whistle blew. After an interval, Doughty put the ball in motion, and the home team immediately assumed the offensive, but Jones raised the siege, and the Welsh forwarda getting possession, Sabine from corner kicked the first goal for the visitors. Ireland now played up with great spirit, with the result that during the remainder of the game play was almoisnt entirely confined to Welsh territory. Peyden in quick succession notched two more goals for Ireland, but the last one was disallowed, being off-side. The visitors after this made a hard stand, and succeeded go well in guarding their citadel that the representati ves of the shamrock were cieverly beaten back until about ten minutes to can of time. when Peyden brought the leather up to their goal, and passing to Sherrard on the right wing, he headed the ball through. Just before the finish the visitors missed scoring from a couple of free kicks in front of the Irish goal, and the match resulte 1 in an easy victory for Ireland by four goals to one. Team.3-Wiles R.

Instances of this kind oukjht to be numerous enough as to need not to call any attention to their occurrence, but unfortunately they are not so. Conformists all i Nonconformists, though not in agreement on many minor matters and some important truths, still have the same end in view, and ought not to f.el any difficulty in lending a helping hand to nn. Sl.noth.r, TESTIMONIAL TO A MINISTEu.-On the evening of Wednesday, the 9th instant, a very interesting meet- ing was held at Tre'rd lol, near Corwen, in order to present a testimonial to the Rev.

Pritchard, Cynwyd, read the address, which was handed to Mr Ellis by Miss Jones, Coed Moelfa; Mr W Jones, Rhydywernen, handwd him the gold spec- tacles and Mrs Davien, the Druid Farm, the purse of money. Mr Ellis, in acknowledging the handsome prssents, thanked his numerous friends most nincerely, and also made a few wise, practical remarks, full of deep and tender feeling. Then followed short con- gratulatory addresses by Messrs H. D. Jones, Coed Moelfa; W. Foulkes Jones, Corwen; W. T. Row- lands, J. Edmunds, Ucheldre and J. Highem, wen and also by the Revs. E. M.

RHOS PUBLIC HALL COMPANY, SHAREHOLDERS' MEETING. The first annual meeting of the shar: holders of this company took place on Monday at the Public Hall. Mr Edward Hooson, Victoria House, vice-chairman of the directors, presided. The following director* were also present :—Mr Robert R .herts, grocer, Ponkey Mr Hezekiah Jones, Liverpool House Mr Benjamin Williams, Mona House Mr Win. Taylor, Tanyclawdd and Mr Robert Edwards, grocer, Market-street. A large number of shareholders also attended. The President felt sure that the shareholders. knowing the circumstances, would admit that it had been difficult work for the directors to accomplish the results shown in the balance sheet, and it was very gratifying to the shareholders to he able to propose a dividend at the rate of 2.1 per cent. (Cheers.) That was the first time in the history of the Pubiie Hall that a dividend had been declared. He hoped-for which he had goo 1 grounds—that, with the steadfast co-operation of the shareholders, they would realise even a better dividend at the next annual meeting. (Cheers.) The directors had been most economical and careful in their expe- diture for the year now closed. The total cost, minus interest, for the year was only the small sum of E23 144 3d, and they should remember that the -alaries of secretary and hall- keeper, gas, rates, and incidental expenses were in- cluded in that amount. It was with regret they had to allude to the death of one ot their number during the past year, namely, Mr Richard Pritchard, builder but the directors had great pleasure in electing Mr Arthur E. Evans, Bronwylfa, to fill the vacancy, and he would doubtless prove a valuable coadjutor. (Cheers.) He could not close his remarks without alluding to t: e ureat a rvices rendered to th" company by their painstaking and efficient secretary, Mr J Denbigh Jones, wh > had always been well up to his duties, doing his utmost to promote the success of the concern. (Cheers.) He had now great plea- sure in moving the adoption of the report and accounts. (Chters.) Mr Wm. Taylor, Tanyclawdd, in seconding the motion, said they would see by the statement of accounts that they had a loan of 2500. They were desirous to reduce that amount, and the shareholders might just as well receive the interest and have the property, which was really a good one, entirely free from encumbrance. The directors and the secretary had labored hard against many difficulties, and that without remuneration, and he hoped that the share- holders would do their utmost to help them, and to induce their friends to do likewise. (Hear, hear.) The resolution having Leen put to the meeting, was carried unanimously. The Chairman then announced that the directors who retired at that meeting in rotation were Mr Isaac Jenkins (Jenkins and Jones, Johnstown), Mr Hezekiah Jones, Liverpool House, and Mr William Taylor, Tanyclawdd. They were, however, eligible and offered themselves for re-election. Mr Benjamin Williams said he had had abundant evidence of the zeal and abilities shown by these gentlemen, and he moved that they be re-elected. Mr Robert Roberts, Ponkey, seconded the resolu- tion, which was agreed to. On the motion of the Chairman, Mr J. Rogers was re-elected auditor to the Company. The Secretary then read a letter from Mr E.
