A DISASTROUS TAX.—Doring Oliver Cromwell's Protectorate Jamaica was taken from the Spaniards, and ever since has been a British possession. At our advent on the island, there were sixty five cocoa walks, each walk or plantation comprising thousands of trees- the Theobroma Oaeao. On Charles the Second's return we hear of, in St James's Street and elsewhere, chocolate houses as well as of coffee houces, bett) one and the other being the mode, and answering to the West End clubs of to-day. Later on we find coffee houses standing on a broader basis, and gradually adapt- ing their prices to meet the means of all classes, but we find no such records of the progress of chocolate; yet it needed not to go far to find the wherefore. In Bryan Edwards's History of the West Indies," 3 vols., pub ished in 1793, we And the duty on cocoa made into cakes was twelve guineas per cwt., besides lis ll^d paid at the Custom Hou^e, t «., 480 per cent, and this rate, of duty continued down to the end of the 18th century, cocoa becoming, for the English market, a production not worth the growing, and Jamaica's plantations were let fall to decay. When we again come upon a record, it is in 1832, and the duty nliich had been standin at 6d per pound, with an importation of under half a million pounds per annum, was forthwith reduced to 2d, and not long after we fiud, as a coin- cidence, that the homoeopathic doctrine of medicine WJS intro- duced into this country, and that cocoa was specially advocated as a drink by the physicians adopting ihat mode of treatment, an outcome of whi h being that the first established homoeo- pathic chemiots in England (now a well-known firm) produced a special preparation, which only .bo0,n» .w=lttr or '"ilk to be al once ready for the table. In 1842, the duty was again reduced to a penny per pound, and we find the consumption making such way that the output alone of the manufacturers above alluded to reached in the year just passed aw-y between five and six millions of pounds.—"THE STATIST."

WHAT THE GOVERNMENT PROPOSE DOING. The Government have decided to bring the- present session to an early issue, and to re- assemble Parliament in October to again promote the Franchise Bill. THE WELSH EDUCATION BILL. This Bill will not be brought before Parlia- ment this session. THE PROPOSED VOLUNTEER CORPS.. Mr A. J. Hughes, town clerk, has received a letter from Colonel Pryse, lord lieutenant of the county, who has been in communication with the War Office on this subject, and the- committee will meet this (Saturday) evening to consider the same. w e THE WELSH LORDS AND THE FRANCHISE BILL. Among those who voted with the Govern- ment in favour of the Bill were Lord Aberdare, the Bishop of St. Asaph and Lord Sudeley., Those who voted against included the Marquess of Londonderry, Earl Powis, Lord Dinevor, Lord Harlech, Lord Mostyn and Lord Penrhyn..
DISESTA BLIS H M ENT. To the Editor of the Aberystwyth Observer. Sir, Having regard to the prominent positieo, ati ong the questions of the day taken by Dises- tablishment, it is a remarkable fact thaI not one has- been more misunderstood. Our sectarians beli.ve that it will be a panacea for the ills of religion Our churchmen look upon it with misgivisg and dread. It is bicause the question has not been thoroughly gone into that such misunderstanding exists. It will better the sects, not at all; it will; harm the Church, very li: tie. But it is the nation upon which the evil will fall the nation's repre* sentatives and her senate. I' is a very general idea that the Church gets- State aid and I have heard this constantly as- serted by the advoiates of disestablishment, that the Church's bishops are paid by the State. It is false, and it is the unfairest of argu- ment that has to appeal to invention for support. I leave it for abler pens than mine to prove this, but proved it is, and h is been by the pen of history, and the church has published many pamphlets upon the subject, pamphlets so conclusive as never to have been answered by her opponents. There is no doubt but that the chief incitement is a jealousy. acrid and pitiless. The ruthless hand of destruction is to be laid upon this fair and happy union of Church and State. The bond which has embraced the two for so many long years is to be cut asunder*. the edifice that has cost the labour of mmy lives and centuries to erect is to be razed to the ground and why ? The end I say do: snot justify the nct. Can we not avert it? I implore you, and I speak not only to you, Mr Editor, but to the whole country-side, to pause before rushing in a purpose so mis-directed to an end so disastrous. It is worse than folly. This is not the remedy. Would that I could make you feel this. Because the edifice ia not large enough, because it no longer maintains its former cosmopolitan position, will you sever the connection with those that have the power to enlarge it, to restore that position. It is a very easy thing to destroy existing institu* tions, as Voltaire found, but the difficulty is in forming them. What we wawt is not Disestablish- ment. Re-establish, call it what you will. Let us. have a National Church that will embrace all ther sects for all the purposes of Government. Let us have more than a Church of England let us have Church of the English, of the people. Let the narrow Church of to-day widen her boundaries and extend her walls. Would that the- sects would come forward and claim their rights as equal citizens with Churchmen, and throw aside this rancorous and unhealthy desire of destruction and pillage. They would, I know, be well met, gener- ously reLeived, and amply rewarded. What repre- senlative Government could deny them their rights the rights of representation ? Instead of trying to destroy, let them demand to share the Church's privileges, and undeitake her duties.. I know such a scheme of fusing the churches of the country in one undivided whole so fur as is necessary and expedient for the purposes of State is not only possible but practical and of giving representatives of our sects privileges in Parliament such as our bishops enjoy, and their mittisters duties to perform such as are now solely performed by the Established Church, thoagh dis- tasteful at first to many Churchmen, would in th& end meet with the approval such a tolerant policy- would deserve. I know, too, that it will be an evil day for England when religion is cut off from her Senate House. Tho Church would survive the blow and still pros- per, bat experience has proved how a State may and probably would suffer. And we claim to be a religious people. Why should not we have a national Church ? For every reason why we should not, there are a hundred why we should. If our Conservative candidate would make this his watchword-to re-establish the sects and Church he would succeed, depend upon it. He would have justice and reason on his side. If Mr Vaughan Davies, I say, would go to the constituency with this cry, he would meet his opponents in the teeth of their contentions and would win the respect and, affections of our countrymen, of Welshmen, whey are pre-eminently fond of their religion. My pen and my language are feeble, but my cause I know is. good. M.

THE LORDS AND THE FRANCHISE. The Lords have, under justifiable circum- stances, thrown out the Franchise Bill. Threatenings dire and dreadful are in the air, and the early doom of the House of Lords is freely foretold, in language more forcible than complimentary. But this is not likely io come to pass just yet. The Radi- cals dearly love a Lord, provided always that he is pliable and willing to do what is required of him. Even in the Radical Illiberal Club in this town there is a House of Lords as well as a House of Commons. There is a difference, however, between the constitution of the Houses here and in Lon- don. In St. Stephen's the Commons take the initiative, but in Aberystwyth the Com- mons are ruled by the Lords, whose behests they are bound to comply with.
THE LEASES QUESTION. In another column we set out the facts laid before Counsel and the Actuary, and their respective opinions thereon, and we leave the public to form their own opinion. They will see that Counsel bears out the Corporation Solicitor almost in the very words made use of by the latter. The Actuary makes out the amount of the sink- ing fund to be 10s 9d, and not about 2s 6d at X5 per cent., or 4s 5d at zC4 per cent., as made out by some of the Town Councillors. The opinions now settle this question, and we trust there will be no further waste of time. Counsel says that leases ought to be granted upon a fine and the old rent.
The Deanery of Bangor has been conferred upon the Rev. Canon Lewis, rector of Dol- gelley, and the vacant canonry upon the Rev. J. Price, Trel'drarth. Messrs. A. &. F. Pears, the manufacturers of the well known soap bearing their name, spend from thirty to forty thousand pounds annually in advertising their wares. Lord Aberdare presided at the annual meet- ing of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, held in London, and was able to congratulate the Society upon the year's operations. The annual meeting of the local branch was held at the Town Hall on Tuesday, the Rev T. A. Penry occupying the chair. Air Morris Davies, the indefatigable secretary, re- ported that financially the branch was in a better position than in the p~eceding year. Colonel Pryse was re appointed president. The meeting passed resolutions asking the local M.Ps to support the bills illegalising pigeon slaughtering and the use of steel traps in catch- ing game. The local Conservative Club has now settled down in its own comfortable quarters in New- street, and the first general meeting of the members was held there on Tuesday evening, Mr J. P. Lewis occupying the chair. The unity with which this organisation is conducted is in strange contrast to the Illiberal Club, in the vicinity of the police station, where everything is ordered by the inner circle, which meets in the smoke-room, otherwise modestly known as the House of Lords, where only great smokers and talkers, and men whose wives or mothers have money, are permitted to enter. In time of an election, whether parliamentary or municipal, the Conservative Club will exer- cise a considerable influence, and will give a good account of itself. Messrs Stead, Simpson, and Nephews, one of the largest boot and shoe manufacturing firms in the United Kingdom, whose manufactory is in Leicester, but who have branches, spread- ing like a network, over the whole of England, have just been celebrating the jubilee of their existence as a firm, on a befitting scale. As many as twelve hundred men, women, and children, all of whom are dependent in some way upon the firm, were conveyed by special train to Birmingham, where they enjoyed themselves immensely in the Tower Grounds at Aston. Games of all kinds were provided, including athletic sports, when a number of prizes were competed for. Then in the even- ing a meeting was held under the presidency of the Mayor of Birmingham, and the proceed- ings were very harmonious and pleasant, prov- ing that the relations existing between the employers and the employed in this instance at least are of the happiest character. Messrs Stead &Co. have a branch in this town in Great Darkgate-street. Tuesday's Town Conncil meeting was de- voted exclusively to the consideration of a number of matters of minor importance, but which taken together form a feature which goes far to make or mar the welfare of the town and the happiness of its inhabitants and visitors. The money-box lesson, Take care of the pence, and the pounds will tuke care of themselves," is equally applicable to the man- agement of towns. Where the small things are attended to, the larger matters are not likely to be neglected. The Town Clerk said Mr Vaughan Davies would meet a committee of the Council that afternoon, to consider what could be done with regard to the Tauybwlch path; Mr C. M. Williams suggested that the Mayor and Town Clerk should wait upon Mr Roderick Richardps with respect to the path leading from Penglaise Lodge to Llanbadarn Mr Isaac Morgan referred to a path leading to Brynymor, and a discussion took place with reference to a path which formerly went through the field occupied by Mr Roberts, Lion Hotel, behind the Town Hall. No doubt something satisfactory will be done in each of these cases. An application was made by Dr C. Rice Williams that the footpath in front of his house on the Marine Terrace should be flagged, and the matter was referred to the public works committee, where it is not likely to receive much consideration. Mr C. M. Williams' suggestion that additional seats should be placed on Victoria Terrace deserved the favourable reception which it received, and the same gentleman's recommendation that copies of Major Tulloch's report be sent to every medical man and hotel in the country will probably receive the favourable consideration of the finance committee. The public works committee would also do well to accept the Mayor's suggestion that the Town Surveyor should use the hose to cleanse the courts of the town. The Town Clerk also reported that the bye-laws have at length been approved of, and I me or two other matters concluded the business. I Mr. T. Owen, the Commercial School, announces that he will offer an Exhibition of jElO, tenable at the University College, open for competition by boys from his school in September, 1885. A correspondent in another column suggests that the various Nonconformist bodies should be permitted to send representatives to the House of Lords, and that they should be estab- lished by law. Professor Rhys is drafting the proposed statutes of the North Wales College. The council of the College have rescinded Mr Rathbone's motion, and have appointed a pro- fessor of modern languages at a salary of £ 400. A copy of the petition of the Cardiff College praying for a charter has been issued aa a Parliamentary paper. It is expected that next Wednesday the College will be incorporated. Whilst Cardiff and Bangor are moving in the right direction, Aberystwyth is quarrelling with its friends. A meeting of ministers and others held a few days ago at Llandyssul, Mr H. P. Cobb in the chair, decided to recommend that the students of the Carmarthen College should be instruct- ed in arts at the University College in this town. A meeting of the executive committee of the North Cardiganshire Agricultural Society was held on Monday afternoon, at the Town Hall, under the presidency of Mr Morris Davies. Several gentlemen promised prizes, and the judges were appointed. Mr Vaughan Davies addressed a meeting of Conservatives at Newcastle Emlyn on Friday week, when a vote of confidence in him as the Conservative candidate was carried. The chair was occupied by Colonel Lewis, Clynfiew, and the speakers included Capt. Jones Parry, MrT. E. Lloyd, Mr Jones, Dinant, Capt. Tyler, Mr R. D. Jenkins, and others.

She was attending the market in this town, and in the afternoon went to the shop of Mr John Thomas (whose wife was related to her), draper, Great Darkgate-street, where she was invited to partake of tea in the kitchen. While there the poor woman suddenly dropped her cup, and expired almost instantaneously. Medical ail was called in, bat it was found to be of no avail.

ANOTHER VERY SUDDEN DEATH.—Painful sur- prise was manifested in the town on Wednesday atteinxm owing to the very sudden demise of Mrs J. E. J. Lloyd, Terrace-road. On the morn ng of the day of ler death she was in the shop apparently in good health, but by two o'clock she had breathed her last under peculiarly distressing circumstances. Much sympathy is felt for her husband and relatives, whose grief is all the more bitter owing to the sur- roundings and the complete unexpectedness of so heavy a blow. She has left a family of children all of them too young to realise the extent oi their loss owing to the removal of a tender mother, whose care and attention they must so greatly need. The medical officers in attendance were Drs Morris Jones a id Harries. The funeral will take place this morn- ing at half-past eleven, and will be private.

EXCURSIONS. The number of day excursionists in this town on Monday was probably as large, if not larger, as it has been for years past. An extremely cheap fare 3s 6d—was charged for the journey to and fro between Carnarvon and this place, and at least about twelve hundred availed themselves of an opportunity of spending a few hours on the West coast. Afso, heavily-laden trains arrived here from Birmingham and the intermediate stations. Added to the fact that it was market day. the town was very full, and in the afternoon Great Darkgate-street looked as crowded as Fleet-street in the busiest hours of business. Mr E. Liller, the enterprising manager of the Cambrian Railways, is showing commendable zeal in the discharge of his duties, and the result must be that the coffers of his company must be en- riched as well as the business of the Aberystwyth tradespeople improved.

DEATH OF MRS LLOYD, LLANBADARN-ROAD.— Mrs Lloyd, wife of Deputy Chief Constable John Lloyd, died about five p.m. on Monday. She had been ill for several months past, and notwithstanding all that the best medical skill could do, the disease (consumption) could not be prevented from doing its deadly work. The deceased was quiet and unob- trusive in her life and habits, and had gained the respect and esteem of many friends in the town. Besides her husband, she has left two small children -to whom she was devotedly attached-but who are of age to deeply feel their loss. The deceased lady was buried yesterday morning, at the Cemetery, the Rev J. Pugh, vicar of Llanbadarn, officiating. It was understood that the funeral would be private, but a goodly number were present to show their reo spect, the company including the Revs W. Evans, Pembroke Dock, and T. Parry, Llanbadarn, Major Bassett Lewis, chief constable, Dr Evan Rowland, Goginan, coroner, Alderman David Roberts, and a number of tradesmen and others.

THE PIER.—During the week the Promenade Pier has been well patronised, and a most excellent enter- tainment has been provided. The local Briton Band gives much satisfaction, whilst the Eccentric Ollives continue to give their mania and musical entertain- ment to admiring audiences. Mr Foote's representa- tions of character are excellent, and his songs equally so. Miss Hart skilfully accompanies on the piano. THE CONSERVATIVE CLUB. — The first general meeting of the members of this flourishing club on their own premises, took place at the club rooms in New-street, on Tuesday evening, under the presi- dency of the chairman, Mr J. P. Lewis. Several new members were proposed and accepted, and a considerable amount of general business was tran- sacted, the utmost unanimity marking the whole proceedings. Mr T. Vaughan, a visitor now staying in the town from Coventry, gave a capital address on the working of such institutions, and the good which is likely to accrue from them, and the Chairman also pointed out the necessity for each member doing what he could to support the principles with which he had identified himself. The club rooms have been fitted up most elaborately,and are,for the present,open from six to ten p.m. daily (Sundays excepted), where a number of the London dailies and other papers are supplied for the use of members. General meetings will be frequently called for the discussion of political questions, and it is believed that the club will become an educational institution, as well as one which will wield some influence and significance in the town and county.
4- LOCAL LAW CASE. In ihe Queen's Bench Division a local case has been heard. It was a motion to set aside an award, in an arbitration, Evans and another, of Mr Owen Daniel, on ihe ground that he gave the award with- out having heard the party against whom the award was made, and without consulting the other arbi- trator, Mr Morgan.
