The tenth match between teams representing Wales and Ireland took place at Belfast, on Saturday, and the representatives of the Emerald Isle achieved their second victory by seven goals to two. The result was a surprise, for although the Welsh team was not a first-rate one, yet it was considered to be quite good enough. The fact is the Irishmen have improved grett-lv. and in future Wales will have to place its best eleven in the field if it is to hope for success. The team had a very calm passage, and probably went on the ground in better condition than any other previous one. Amongst ether places visited on Saturday morning:, the team went through Dunville's stores, ofifces, and distillery, and the process of manufacturing the whisky was fully explained to them. The ground of the Linfield Club is a very fine one, but it was too small to hold the spectators on Satur- day. The match had been eagerly locked forward to, and the gate" was the largest that has ever been taken, amounting to ever E200. The game was a very good one from start to fini6b, but the Irishmen undoubtedly outplayed the Welsh- men. The whole taam was the most combined and scientific one ever got together by the Irish Associ- aticn, and they thoroughly deserved their success. The backs played splendidly, and the halves were a fine trio. The forwards combined well, and were very fast. For Wales, Turner got a lot of work to do and did it well. He could not be blamed for any of the goals scored against him. He got no assistance from the backs, who were both weak. Of the two, Roberts was the best. A. Lloyd kicked well at times but had no idea of tackling. The half-backs hardly performed as well as it was expected they would. Lea was the best of the three, but none of them fed their forwards at all well. J. Davies was by far the best forward, and B. Lewis came about next. Alty Davies was, as we expected, not a success, and W. Owen rather spoilt his own play by doing a lot of work in the centre. R. Roberts was rather selfish, but otherwise played well. We should mention that one of the goals scored by Ireland was undoubtedly off-side. After the match, the teams were entertained to dinner by the Committee of the Irish Association, when an enjoyable evening was spent. A team representing Wrexham went to Brymbo on Saturday, and beat the Institute Club by five goals to two. Two Junior Cup ties were brought off in Wrexham, and both furnished good games. The re-played tie between the Wrexham Gymnasium and the Wrexham Reserve excited considerable interest. The Gyms were unfortunate in being short of F. W. Ellis and J. Turner, while the Reserve had, perhaps, a better team than on the previous occasion. ■ ■ ■ 1 ■ i Play was fast throughout, and bo'h teams went into it with a zest and good humor, which was quite refreshing. The Reserve had slightly the best of it all through, and finally won by three goals to one. Lewis in goal for the Reserve played a capital game, and the backs defended well. Amongst the halves, Eaborn, the captain, was most energetic, and did some particularly clever work. The forwards do not combine'as well as they might, but they all played well. Garner and Davies again played beautifully together. Perhaps the hardest worker of the five was T. Jones, the inside right, who kept hard at it fiom start to finish. Amongst the Gymns J. Wilson was good at back, and the half-backs all played a strong game. Of the forwards Harrison and Higginson were the best. R. Hughes hesitated on several occasions when he might have shot, and T. Shelby was watched very closely. The tie between the Victoria and the Rhostyllen Reserve was a very pleasant one. The forwards of the Victoria are good, but the back division is rather weak. On Saturday Mold again failed to fulfil a Welsh League fixture. At Ruabon the home club received a severe defeat at the hands of Rhostyllen Victoria. The visiting forwards were far in ad vance of the homa lot, both as regards combination and shooting, and this appears to have given them a well-deserved victory. To-day (Saturday) Wrexham plays Northwich Victoria on the Racecourse in the Combination. A good team has been selected to represent the home club. Oswald Davies will again make his appear- ance. A!though officially denied, we believe that Witton are retiring from the Combination. Chester have, in their usual childish way, reported Wrexham for playing an ineligible man against them. What advantage can Chester hope to derive from it? Surely they are not afraid that Wrexham I will top them in the Combination.

Soon afterwards, W. Lloyd scored for the Victoria, and E. Woodward added another. At half-time, the score stood Fairfield Victoria 2 goals, and Rhosddu St. Oswald's nil.

TREVOR SWIFTS.— This match was played at Ruabon on Saturday io fine weather. The ground was in splendid order, and there was a good number of spectators. The visitors' captain won the toss, and Morris kicked off forrthe School. The game was very evenly contested throughout the first half, and when balf-time.came no ?.??< t??? 1. ?-? ?\ ? sum imu ueeu suoreu. un play being resumed the game became very fast and exciting, and the home forwards were several times very near scoring. Frosn some neat passing Morris scored the first goal for tme home eleven, but it was not long before the visitors equalised matters. Each side now worked hard to get the winning point, which was eventually registered by Taylor from a scrimmage in front of goal. So further goals being scored, the homa team were victcrious by two goals to one. The teams were SCIIOOL.Goal, W. Edwards backs, D.

CHIRK v. WESTMINSTER ROVERS. I These teams met on the Chirk ground on Saturday. There was not a very large attendance. The home team was a weak one, four of their first eleven assist- ing Wales against Ireland. Owing to the late arrival of the Rovers the game only lasted an hom. The home team won the toss, and about twenty minutes past four Cross started the ball for the Rovers. The Chirk forwards got possession and made for the Rovers' goal, and for about ten minutes the home team Kovers had all the best of matters. A corner resulted for Chirk, and the ball was nicely placed in front of goal. Butler shot, and Griffiths saved. Another fruitless corner followed for Chirk, and then the visitors took the ball to the home end, and Williams missing hia kick, let in Evans and Powell, a capital shot from the foot of the latter taking effect, after about twenty minutes' play. From the kick-off in the centre the visitors again looked dangerous. A corner was conceded the Rovers. Nothing, how- ever, resulted. Some even play in mid-field followed, and another rush on the home goal ended in a corner being given in defence, the ball being finally sent behind. The home team next assumed the aggressive, Butler finishing up a good run with a shot which Griffiths had some difficulty in clearing. Two other ahotaat the Rovers' goal followed in quick succession, but the defence was too good. The home team pressed severely for a time, but when the teams changed over the score stood at one to none in fliygr of the Rovers,—On resuming, the home forwards took the play into the Rovers' quarters, a grand shot from Morris just missing the mark, Butler a minute later sending in another which went a few inches the wrong side- of the posts. The home end was next the scene of play, and after one or two attempts on the part of the Rovers' for- wards to capture the Chirk goal, a corner was conceded, the ball being got away. The home team again took up the offensive, and a capital run on the home left ended in Butler sending the ball just over the crossbar. From the goal-kick, the ball was taken to the home end, and a second goal was scored for the Rovers by Edwards accidentally putting the ball through his own goal. Shortly before the expiration of the last half, the home forwards with a rush made for the visitors' goal, and a shot was sent in which took effect, and Chirk notched their first and only goal. Nothing further was done, and when the whistle signalled time the Rovers had won by two goals to one. The following were the teams CHIRK.—A. Hiles, goal; J. Williams and J. Meredith, backs; J. Rogers, E. Morris, and F. Edwards, half-backs M. Roberts and H. Morris, right wing J. Butler and E. James, left wing G. Williams, centre. WESTMINSTER ROVERS.—J. Griffiths, goal; C. Joneg and G. Jones, backs; G. Jones, Job Williams, and Samuels, half-backs J. Jones and Jenkins, right wing E. Davies and J. Powell, left wing W. Cross, centre.
WREXHAM v. BRYMBO INSTITUTE. I Wrexham played a friendly match with Brymbo Institute on Saturday. The team left Wrexham by the two o'clock train to Brymbo, and on arriving there proceeded to the Mount Hotel. where they dressed. From there a walk of half a mile along the line brought them to the ground, where there was a fair number of spectators. Brymbo kicked off at a quaiter past three, and pressed at first, but play was chiefly confined t > mid-field. Working the ball up Turner sent to Hayes, who sent in a fast shot, which Charles just managed to clear. Wrexham showed some neat passing, but the Brymbo backs were very strong. Hands" for Brymbo near goal resulted in the ball being kicked behind. Hands were next granted Wrexham, and Hayes secured first goal for them. Brymbo ran down and sent in a good shot, which hit the crosa-bar. From a free-kick the home- sters pressed, but the Wrexham backs played firm. A splendid shot was sent into Davies' hands, but he managed to clear. Wrexham sharpened up a little, and getting under way Evan Williams scored the second goal for the visi-tors. W-rexham continued to press, but half-time arrived with the score unaltered, Wrexham leading by two goals. Re-starting, Brymbo made a strong attack, and repeated rushes were made on the visitors' quarters. They were, however, re- pulsed time after time. Hayes sent in a straight shot from the centre, which Charles covered. Charles, however, directly afterwards let the third goal through. Bob Davies saved several grand shots. By some good passing, the visitors got down in grand style, and Turner put in a beautiful shot, which struck the cross-bar and rebounded into play. Joe Rogers shortly afterwards scored the first point for Brymbo. Charles then saved several good shots from Turner. Hayes scored the fourth goal for Wrexham with a swift shot. Edwards, from the right, screwed in a shot, which struck the bar and bounded behind. Play was very slow, being chiefly of a give and take character. Turner scored a further goal for Wrex- ham, after which Brymbo scored their second goal. The game thus ended in a win for Wrexham by five goals to two. The following were the teams :— WREXHAM.—R. Davies, goal; P. Kyffin and E. Ellis, backs J. Davies, A. Hayes, and M. Cafferty, half-backs Evan Williams, E. Jones, A. Roberts, G. Edwards, and W. Turner, forwards. BRYMBO I.NSTITUTE.—J. Charles, goal; J. Bellis, and G. Thomas, backs T. Roberts, D. Matthias, and J. Jonea, half-backs; A. D. Jones, J. r. Willkms, J. S. Wynne, E. Matthias, and J. Rogers, forwards.
I WALES v. IRELAND. Teams representing these countries met at Belfast on Saturday. The Welsh team. in which there were two alterations, R. Roberts, of Rhos, and A. Lloyd, of Ruthin, taking the places of Bowdler and Seth Powell, arrived at Belfast on Friday morning, and put up at the Queen's Hotel. A short practice was indulged in on the Ulster ground during the day, and Messrs Gallaher's Tobacco Factory, and the premises of the Belfast Evening Telegraph were visited. In the evening the circus was attended. The match on the following day was played on the ground of the Linfield Club, and there were over 6000 spectators present. The weather was simply delight- ful, whilst the ground was in good condition. Wales won the toss, and Ireland defended the pavilion goal. Stanfield kicked off for the home eleven. The ball was Rent to the left, and Lloyd returned. Morrison checked two attempts on the part of the visitors' right wing to get away. Reynolds was deprived of the ball by keeping it too long. Reynolds passed to Peden, who sent across to Torrans, Roberts saving in the Rick of time. Play was in mid-field for a time. Ireland got a free kick on the half-way line, but nothing resulted. Goodbody made a mistake, and Roberts sent in a fast shot, which scored the first point for Wales. From the kick-off the home left wing rushed away, but Torran's shot was weak. Lewis was getting away but was promptly stopped. Turner admirably stopped a shot from Peden at close range. Peden got another chance soon afterwards, but Roberts kicked away. J. Davies made a run, and passed to A. Davies, who shot wide. From the goal-kick Daltun dribbled up and shot. the ball pasfiing through the posts, and thus equalising the score. On the re-start, Davies and Owen passed prettily, and the former tried a long shot, but Clugston kicked out. Ireland got a free-kick for Mates pushing Stanfield, and a "corner" followed, which was nearly converted into a goal. From the goal-kick, Roberts and Lewis were busy, a pass across the home goal being headed away by Goodbody. Dalton and Gaffiken rushed away. Moore got the ball and sent inalongshot. Stanfield and two others hustled Turner through and the ball followed, thus scoring the second point for Ireland. After Daviei had kicked off. Turner conceded a 11 corner," and a hot fight ensued in goal. Turner kept out with marvellous skill some fast and low shots. Finally Roberts relieved with a long kick, but the Irish halves stopped the Welshmen. Returning to the attack, Stanfield took a long pass from Torrans and scored the third goal for Ireland. On the re-start, after some fine passing amongst the Irishmen, A. Davies made a run, but finished up with a poor shot. The ball from the goal-kick went to Peden, who was stopped by the backs after a short run. After the Welsh goal had had several narrow escapes, the Welsh forwards got well into their opponents' quarters, and A. Davies made the score three to two. Wales had the best of it for a short time, but the home men retaliated, and Stanfield put on a fourth point for them. Peden got past the backs, but Turner saved cleverly. At half- time the score was—Ireland, 4 goals; Wales, 2. On re-starting. Ireland at once got busy round the Welsh goal. Reynolds headed in and Turner got the ball away. At the other end, Clugston bit away a nasty shot, and subsequently he punted away a long slow shot from A. Davies. J. Davies placed a corner" splendidly, Goodbody heading away. The game was rather slack at this period, Wales having the best of it. Gaffikin scored an off-side goal for Ireland. Directly afterwards the same player put on a legitimate point, thus notching number five for the J Irishmen. Lloyd missed his kick and btanheld nearly scored. Gaffikin ran past Lloyd and shot, but Turner got the ball away. Turner gave a "corner" in defence. Dalton headed in and the ball hit the cross- bar and rebounded. Torrans at once headed through the sixth goal, amidst cheers. W. Owen trot paet Moore and then beat Morrison. He unfortunately just shot over the bar. R. Roberts got along the left nicely, but "gallery" pday allowed Goodbody to clear- Clugston kicked (XiI; a shot from Lewis. The Irishmen put in some loftg shote, but Turner easily disposed of them. Clugston had to use hiii hands to save a couple of scorchers con- sequent on a "corner" kick, and Wales pressed severely. Torrans tiroke away, Stanfield go* the eer. tre and sent to Dalton. That player retvraed it, and Stanfield had not the slightest difficulty in i .putting: the leather ttuouRh-eeven to two. The Erish forwards played up well, and Turner fead to -save a shot from Terrans. Turner cleared « shot from Stanfield in a splendid manner. A "earner" resulted, but nothing-came from it, and directly after- wards the whistle sounded with the score stamcKng— Ireland, seven goals ? Wales, two. The teans werej as follows ) W ALES.-R. E.

SIB,-A paragraph is going the round of the new. papers, that I have brought on myself the contemp: of the Nonconformists when advertising for men to join the police force, by stating that one of the testimccals must be from a clergyman. I am extremely sorry that anyone should have thought me capable of hurt, icg the feelings of any religious sect. I have always thought that a clergyman was a minister t-f a:,y Christian religion if I am wrong, then the often r. peated loat at the public banquets i1 wrong, "Zhe Bishop and Clergy of all Denominations. I pes haps need not quote this ag an authority, but I can only say it was far from my intention to confine testi- monials to the Church of England clergyman only and I must again express my regret at my ingoiance. I have more Noncouformists in my force, I believe, than any others. I have Roman Catholics and others, and so far as I am concerned, I don't care a pin what religion a man is so long as he d HI his liny.-I am, &c. T. J. LEAPBEITER, Chief Constable, Denbighshire. County Buildings, Wrexham, 9.h Feb., 1S91. I THE CHURCH DEFENCE LECTURE. SIB,—Mr Palmer has misunderstood the of my remarks at Wrexham the other day. Both bo ka were lent me, and they were with me on the plat- form. It was clear from both his history ( f thfr Parish Church, and of the Older Nonconformity ot Wrexham, that Mr Palmer was cognisalJt of the sufferings endured by lawful and episeopally ordained incumbents, at the hands of Presby terians and Ic Je- pendents, wiled" each in turn obtained a temporary lease of power. So far as I remember, Mr Palmer expresses no pity for the rightful ineumberit., who were expelled by the Puritan soldiery for refusing the covenant or engagement, nor should we expect to- find an historian doing so. His business is to scato the occurrences and keep his own feeiinitis out of the history. But this is just what Mr Palmer does njt do when he comes to speak of the ultimatum given to the intruded supplanters in 1(j2. Th-re is not a word to indicate how the incumbents of Gresford, Bangor, &c., got into the positions which they vacated on August 24th but Mr Palmer goss out of his way to show them hearty sympathy, and to sutak of their removal as if they were being defrau led of their just rights, whereas the circumstances of St. Bartholomew's Day, 16G2, obtained for the Church a tardy recognition of her ancient liberties, though wi-b. out restitution of that which had been un- righteously filched away by martial law for 20 years. At my lecture I suggested that Mr Palmer should supply the omission in future editions of his Wrex- ham Nonconformity," otherwise his book will not be so free from a suspicion of puty bia* as a blàl archasologist's work should be. It ii no proof of impartiality to say "I wrote another book on the other fjide." Why should it be bkell for granted :;h.st Churchmen and Nonconformists want a record it their own side only? I found Mr Pti.n.v- h.u .a. Nonconformity possessed by the majority of church families I visited when in the district, but -1 question whether a like proportion of Nonconformists bvu.;ht his Hietory of the Parish Church, MostcorJially do I appreciate the labors of all who are tryJUb. as Mr Palmer does, to familiarise their townsmen with local archaeology, (I am appealing for workers in the same direction wherever I go), but it is misleading future generations to sort the history into dilierent books and say "This is for Churchmen to study, and that for Nonconformists." The history of Nonconformity in Wrexham, Gremford, Afoli, or anywhere else, ii it goes back in any district to the 17th Century Civil Wars, is closely connected with the parish church there, and those who write on the subject without admitting that chu-rchmen have a word to say in their own behalf must expect to have their attention drawn to the omission.-I am, &c C.

A LADY DROWNED IN THE DEE. I IK QUEST AT ERBISTOCK. At the Boat House. Erbistuek, on Saturday, befJra- Mr John Pay. coroner, an inquest was held on the body of Dinah Longridjie, aged thirty-five, unm.irricd, the daughter of Mr William Lon^ridge. f.,tm«rly an estate agent, of Kilhendre. The Rev. P. W. buarline- was foreman of the jury. William Longridge identified the boly ps that of his daughter, who had enjoyed good health duiinir the past twelve months. She did not suffer She never appeared to be despondent, or suffer from melancholia. On Thursday uftsmoon ahe lift home at half-past two, and told her mother she was iroinjr to gather snowdrops, and that she would be back early for tea. Deceased did not say where tlhs was going, but she went in the direction of Pant Mill She was frequently in the habit of colLcting flowers in the neighbourhood. The members of the family were all on good teruis, and had had no quarrel. She had not arrived home at nine o'clock, and he beean to get anxious, but he knew that she "ometimes called at Mr xMcarsh's or Mr Bachelor's. He cot a lantern. and went up the lane to Mr Marsh's houie, and found it in darkness, and resuming t.at th famiry had retired he returned home, At midnight he went to air Batchelor's. and found his daughter had not been there.—By the Foreman The wood, which was formerly in the occupation of Mrs Hope, now belonged to Mr Williams, and there were plenty of snowdrops in it. Edwin Cross, miller, Pant Mil', sail lie had known the deceased for four years, during which she always appeared genial and pleasant, lie had heard it said that she was subject to fainting fits, but he had not heard this from any member of the family. On Thursday deceased passed his houas in the afternoon, with a small basket in her hand. Shs said, "Good afternoon; what a nice chauge in the weather." Witness afterwards went to clean out a pigsty, and upon looking around he saw her in the comer of his field, thirty yards away from the footpath, and he thought it strange that she should have been there. This was the last time that he saw her. There was an old footpath leading to the river, which was now closed. Mr Hopley went to the mill for some corn the next morning, and be was followed by hia son, who said, We have not yet fuund her." This aroused witness's suspicions, and he said, Whom do you refer to ? and they told him that Mits Long- ridge was missing. Witness then said that he saw her on the previous day, and suggested that she might have gone along the old path, as he saw her near it when in the corner of the field. Witness and Hup!ey walked down a brook near the river, but could find nothing. They afterwards went to the river, and could see nothing of her for a time, but they after- wards found her body lying on some btones, where it had been washed by the current, which was rather strong at this particular point. The body was removed on to the bank. John Hopley, in the employ of Mr Lonpridge, gave corroborative evidence. P.S. Robert Pearscn, said lie went in company with Cross and Hopley, and found the body. Mr Weaver, of Manley Hall, removed the body to Erbistock Boftthouae. In deceased's pocket were a small handkerchief and a chain. There was no evidence of a struggle, and her clothes were not dis- arranged. Her hat had not been found, but the basket was found a hundred yards down the river. The jury then viewed the river where ttie boiy was found, and upon returning the Coroner, in summing up, said that from the evidence it could not he ascertained how the deceased got into the watr. Their duty was to find their verdict in accordance with the evidence. It would be either accidental or suicidal, or they had another coursa-to return an open verdict, and lie thought the latter would be the proper one. There was not sufficient evidence to show that it was accidental or suicidal, but he would have the Court cleared so that they would consider their ver. diet without interference. After a short interval the jury found, "That the deceased was found drowned in the river De-, and bv what means she got there, there is not sufficient evidence to show and the jury think the footpath adjoining the river extremely dangerous, and wish the /oroner to communicate with the proper authorities ? to its condition, so that the s.une may be re- med')t-ed ? in order to avcid accidents of a mmilar Mture. ♦

RHOS v MOLD.—A league match should have been brought off between these clubs at Johnstown, on Saturday. At the last minute, however, a telegram was received at Rho3, stating that Mold were unable to get a team together. RUABON v. Raos RYLLE' i. -Played at Ruabon on Saturday, before a goodly number of spectators. The teams met on about equal strength, as regards players, both sides being ra:nu3 of two of their first team men. Jones for the victors set the ball in motion. Tomkins made a run, but Williams kicked wide. From the goal kick, Price Davies robbed Edwards, Richards and Gerrard put in shote. A fruitless corner followed for the homesterp. free kick for the visitors transferred the play. and Samuel had several hot shots to negociate. The Ruabon right wing effected a run, backed up well by E lward», but Richards shot widp, A free kick in close proximity to the home sticks resulted in a hut contest, but Price Davies proved rqual t) the occasion. Gerrard was con- spicuous in robbing Tomkin". The home centre fol- lowed with a brilliant run. Richards shot across the goal mouth, and Cartwright regi-tered the first goal. The home right was again busy, and Jones acceded a corner," which came to nothing. Another free kick close to the home goal was awarded the visitors. Jones, the back, took the kick, and in the bully that followed E. Williams equalised the score. Shortly afterwards a high kick from Stubbs fell in his own goal, and E. Jones added the second goal for Rhos- tyllen. "Corners" for both sides followed without result, Gerrard was stopped by Mantle, and U, Williams made a run, the centre finishing with a good shot. Pugh in repelling a 811 Jt, put ths leather at the mercy of Richards, who shot at random. The visitors' left wing showed good form, and Mantle tried a long shot. A corner" followed, but Stubbs got the ball away, and the home right made a neat run. Jones returned, and a well-combined ru-h was made by the Rhostyllen forwards. A shot from H. Williams struck the post and rebounded through, which made the third point for his side. At half-time, the game stood in favor of Rhostyllen by 3 goals to one. On resuming hostilities, Cartwright missed an easy chance. Mantle relieved a pressure. Lloyd re- turned, and R. T. Jone3 shot over the bar. From a throw in, the home forwards did some neat passing, two "corners" following in succession. The ball was again worked up beautifully on the visitors' left, and R. Jones was responsible for the fourth goal. Cart- wright was conspicuous with a run, and a good shot, which Richards converted into the second goal for his side. The visitors now forced the game, Tomkins and J. E. Jones adding to the score, the final result being Rhostyllen 6 goals, Ruabon 2. The following were the teams RUABON.—E. Samuels, goal C.
