Cambrian Jte. SATURDAY, MARCH 27th, 1869. GENERAL. The Irish Church Bill occupied the attention of Parlia- ment, to the exdusion of everything else except a few questions and short replies, from Thursday night till Wednesday morning, when the House adjourned. The debate, as a whole, came up to a high level, and some of the speeches were splendid efforts of oratory. Mr DISRAELI'S opening was a conspicuous failure, disappointing his friends, and exciting surprise amongst both friends and foes but the very able speeches of Dr. BALL and Mr GATHORNE HARDY were received with great delight by the Conservatives, and Sir EOUXDELL PALMER, speaking from the Liberal side of the House, entered his protest against disendowment, in a speech which, if anything could, would have set up a good defence for the doomed Estab- lishment. Even SirROUNDELL,however, though, as a warm adherent of Mr GLADSTONE'S who had sacrificed the highest honours, and something still more dear, to his lofty sense of right, he spoke under peculiar advantages for producing an effect, failed to make out anything like a case for the Opposition, and, by abandoning Establish- ment, abandoned, as Mr GLADSTONE pointed out, the nobler part of the ground occupied by the Conservatives. The greatest speech of the debate, its crowning ornament, was Mr BRIGHT'S. The members on the Opposition benches sat breathless as he poured out his marvellous oratory, now exciting them to laughter by his humour, but oftener extorting their unwilling admiration by his fervent appeals to the principles of justice and the genius of religion. Mr GLADSTONE delivered an effective reply on Wednesday, pointing out that the only real remedy for the present ecclesiastical condition of Ireland, sug- gested by the Opposition, was "levelling up "-the endowment of the Roman Catholic as well as the Anglican Church. The division list showed a crush- ing majority for the Liberals, 118, larger even than was expected, and about double the majority of last session. Thus has the boast, that the decision would be reversed at the hustings, been verified All the members voted ex- cept 20, nine Liberals (including Earl GROSVENOR, who paired for the Bill) and eleven Conservatives. Six Liberals went into the lobby with the noes, and four Conservatives voted with the ayes. We give the votes of the Welsh mem- bers below. Only one Welsh member, Mr HENRY RICHARD, took part in the debate.—No fresh cases of unseating have occurred in the Election Assizes. —A wonderful case of escape from death is recorded this week. On Wednesday, the 17th instant, thirteen men and boys were imprisoned in a pit of Lord DUDLEY'S, at Stourbridge, by an inroad of water, and there some of them remained for six days. All were rescued alive, except one, who became delirious and died, and it is said that they preserved life by lying down beside the water, through which the air came in ripples.—A Madrid telegram gives the basis of the new Spanish Comstitution-an elective monarchy, a senate, and a congress. The monarch is to be elected for eighteen years, the members of the senate (by the provincial councils) for twelve, and the deputies (by universal suffrage) for three. The question of religion is under dis- cussion, a majority being in favour of no State Church. Liberty of the press and the right of public meeting are to be guaranteed. LOCAL. All the Welsh members took part in the Irish Church division except Mr DAVID WILLIAMS, the member for Merionethshire, who, we regret to say, is still kept at home by illness, and who paired in favour of the Bill. North Wales contributed nine to Mr GLADSTONE'S ma- jority, and only two to the other side; South Wales sent twelve to the Government lobby, and six to the Oppo- sition. Thus all the members of the Welsh Brigade" were faithful found," and the Principality had the honour of recording twenty-one votes towards the aboli- tion of the Irish Establishment. The following is the division list as far as it applies to Wales:- FOR THE BILL. Mr R. Davies. Mr Dillwyn. Col. Edwardes. Mr Fothergill. Lord R. Grosvenor. Sir J. Hanmer. Mr W, B. Hughes. Marquis of Hartington. Sir T. Lloyd. Mr G. 0. Morgan. Mr L. Jones Parry. AGAINST. Mr H. Gwyn. Mr J. Jones. Mr T. Meyrick. Major Morgan. Mr H. Richard. Mr E. M. Richards. Mr Sartoris. Hon. W. 0. Stanley. Col. Stepney. CoL Stuart. Mr R. C. Talbot. Hon. C. H. Tracy. Mr H. H. Vivian. Mr W. Williams. Mr J. H. Scourfield. Hon. A. Walsh. Sir W. Wynn. Mr C. W. Wynn. We see that some of the papers include Mr W. B. HUGHES amongst "the Conservatives who voted for the second reading 1" Our readers will not need to be in- formed that Mr HUGHES is a Liberal, and was elected in a severe contest with Mr WYNN, a Conservative. Our readers will peruse with much interest the abstract of Mr HENRY RICHARD'S speech, which we give in an- other column. Mr RICHARD appropriately drew an argu- ment from Wales in favour of the Disestablishment Bill, pointing out how voluntaryism had flourished there, and asking whether, if comparatively poor Welshmen could support their own chapels, we were to suppose that the wealthy members of the Irish Church re- quired the assistance of the State. Mr RICHARD'S figures are interesting. In a little more than a century, he tells us, more than 2,700 chapels were built inJWales, and since 1851, 630 have been erected at a cost of 9302,000. The population of the Principality in 1851 was 1,100,000. The Established Church provided church ac- commodation for 301,897, or thirty per cent; the Noncon- formists, for 692,339, or seventy per cent. Mr RICHARD also pointed out a gross and inexcusable mistake which one of the members for Oxford University had made in a debate on church rates. The right hon. gentleman had stated that chapels in Wales were built by speculative quilders, who mortgaged them on the interest of the pew rents and realized seven per cent. Our readers will en- joy a laugh at the amazing ignorance of the right hon. member, but it is quite as well that such mistakes, which might mislead the House of Commons, should be corrected by a gentleman as well acquainted with the facts as Mr RICHARD is. Now that Wales has elected, not only Liberal members, but members who can talk, and talk intelligently, Parliament will learn more of the Principality than it had any opportunity of knowing in the old state of things, when a nation of Liberals chose hardly any but Tories to represent it. As we record elsewhere, a meeting, most influentially attended, has been convened to consider the best method of celebrating Mr R. J. LL. PRICE'S marriage, and, no doubt, the public rejoicings on the occasion will be on an unusually extensive scale. Mr PRICE belongs to an old family, and that is much in Wales but he has recently made himself popular by his considerate treatment of his tenants, and that is more. We see, by the way, that the tenants on the Anglesea estates have had permission to destroy the rabbits. Mr PRICE'S good example is being fo llwed gradually.
BALA. APPROACHING MARRIAGE OF R. J. LL. PRICE, ESQ., RHIWLAS, TO MISS EVELYN HOPWOOD, OF HOPWOOD HALL. A meeting (a short notice of which appeared in our last), in connection with this interesting event, which is to take place on April 20th, was held on Friday, the 19th inst., at the White Lion Hotel; H.

RICHARDS, Esq., and earned, "That a subscription be entered into for promoting rejoicings to celebrate the event." Proposed by MORGAN LLOYD, Esq., seconded by W. JONES, Esq., Bryntegid, and carried, "That, as there is a balance of 1:137 belonging to the committee formed on the occasion of Mr Price's attaining his majority, the members of that committee now present offer to hand over that sum for the use of the present committee. It is therefore pro- posed that such offer be accepted, and the secretary be requested to obtain the consent of such of the members of the former committee as are not now present." It was proposed by S. HOLLAND, Esq., seconded by J. E. PARRY, Esq., and carried, "That the members of the committee (in each district) who acted on the occasion of Mr Price's attaining his majority be requested to act as a working committee in their several districts." Proposed by H. ROBERTSON, Esq., seconded by Sir W. W. WYNN, and carried, That J. Jones, Esq., Vrondderw, be requested to act as chairman of the local committtee at Bala, and Messrs T. Ellis, Henblas, and D. Rowlands, be appointed hon. secretaries." Proposed by the Rev. D. EVANS, Llanycil, seconded by W. JONES, Esq., Bryntegid, and carried, That William Owen, Esq,, National Provincial Bank, be appointed treasurer. Proposed by Sir W. W.

Roberts, St. Mark's; Mr Richard Jones, draper; Mr T. Jones, Penisarllan Mr Edward Lloyd, Bull Hotel; and Mr D. Morgan, currier, Bala." The meeting terminated with a vote of thanks to the chairman.
ABERDOVEY. Loss OF THE FRANCES POOLE. -Intelli-,ence has been received of the loss of the Frances Poole of this port in the gale of Friday night. She was bound from Runcorn to Faversham with a mixed cargo, and in the gale which visited the West Coast of England on the night of Friday, she was dashed against the Godvery Head, Cornwall, and has since, we learn, become a complete wreck. She had five hands on board, the captain and owner, Mr John Morris, and one of the crew, Hugh Pugh, being natives of Aberdovey, and all perished with the wreck, none of the bodies with a single exception, having been recovered up to Wednesday morning. Morris, who was about thirty- four years old, has left three children, and his widow is on the eve of her confinement; Pugh was in his fortieth year, and was formerly a bowman on the Elizabeth steamer which worked the ferry between Aberdovey and Ynyslas. He leaves a widow and one child to mourn his death. The Frances Poole was a vessel of 150 tons burthen, and was noted for her first-class sailing qualities, being one of the fastest sailing vessels which has left this port.—On the same night, the Mersey, of this place, was wrecked near the North Foreland. The crew of this vessel, however, had their lives spared, but lost all their clothing and 6 BL FESTINIOG.
NEW MARKET HALL. A public meeting was held at the British Schoolroom, Pantyrynn, Four Crosses, on Monday evening last, for supporting a movement now on foot for establishing a new Market Hall. The object was to create a public feeling in the neighbourhood on the subject. The room, considering its situation, was very full, and if it had been held in a more central place, we have no doubt that it would have been crammed. Mr GRIFFITH GRIFFITHS (Gutyn Ebrill) was called to take the chair. He said that this was the first meeting he had attended on the matter, although to some who were present it might be called an old movement. He could remember the first meeting held to agitate the neighbour- hood for establishing the old Market Hall at Llwynvgell. There was a very great difference of opinion then with re- gard to the place. Some thought that it ought to have been in a more central situation then; but it would have required a spirit of prophecy to foresee in those days that the neighbourhood of Four Crosses and Dolgaregddu would have become so important in such a short time. Every one knew that the present Market Hall was inadequate for the requirements of the locality. Personal interest should never interfere with that of the public, and they all knew that the public feeling was for a much larger building. A market hall was not simply to be a place where a little meat and a few apples and oranges were, exposed on sale. We want (proceeded the chairman) something besides those, good as they are in their place, in a large neighbourhood such as this, and on many a pay day we all know how crowded it is, and how it is almost impossible to force oneself in, leaving the transacting of any business out of the question. As a place for holding public meetings, it is impossible to imagine a more unsuit- able place. It was said at the last meeting that the ex- pense incurred by us annually in erecting and taking down the stage used at every literary meeting held there during the year, amounts to between 24 and JE5 per annum. If we had an assembly room, this annual expense would be saved. However, we must take care if we are to have a new Market Hall and Assembly Room, that it will be a public one, where respectable meetings of all kinds may be held, and where parties of all shades of political ideas may ventilate their opinions. We all remember the strong feeling of disappointment felt last year by the whole neighbourhood, when one of the most important meetings ever held here was shut out of the old hall, because its objects did not happen to coincide with the political opin- ions of its proprietors. We must take care that no such tiling will take place in connection with the new one. The Rev. TALIESIN T. JONES said he felt under some disadvantage in advocating the erection of a new building; in the first place because they had one market hall already and secondly because it was rumoured that its proprietors had resolved to make considerable additions to it imme- diately. But (he proceeded) the fact remains after all: we require a more central building. Perhaps the proprietors of the old hall have been actuated too much in their pro- ceedings by self-interest. I am not anxious to arouse a feeling of opposition to them, but I think we have a right also to look to the interests of the public and care must be taken that the new building will not fall into the hands of the few. The first question to be considered is-are the people of Four Crosses resolved to have a new one ? If they are, they must see that the building will be suitable to the requirements of the locality, and we must have general co-operation. If this meeting is not attended as well as we might wish, that is not because the general feeling is not with us, but owing to quite a different cause. The fact is, the feeling of the whole neighbourhood is with us. There may be some neutrals, and to them I would say that we advocate the establishment of a new one, because the present hall is too small. We must have a market hall, but that is not all we require we also want an assembly room, where different meetings may be held, whatever the opinions advocated at them may be. We have no fit place to hold a concert, nor a lecture, nor any such meeting. The old market hall, it is true, was better than being without any—that is all we can say but we ought to go forward. Ten years ago the situation of the present one might have been nearly central; but wonder- ful changes have taken place since then, and every one must admit that Four Crosses is now the most central point in the neighbourhood. In order to carry out the object effectually I would suggest that a committee be formed to consider the plan of proceeding, which should afterwards be submitted to a general meeting for approval. Mr Owen Jones, Tanygraig; Mr William Thomas, Bethania; Mr David Owen, grocer; Mr R. Hughes, Post-office; and Mr R. Roberts, Bonydd House, also ad- dressed the meeting, and all of them advocated the erec- tion of a more central building, which would comprehend both a Market Hall and an Assembly Room. Mr EVAN EVANS, quarry agent, remarked that public meetings such as that was very well to call the attention of the public to the matter, but the question of details must after all be left to the shareholders and directors. The shareholders were the persons to decide where the building should be erected. What would the proprietors of Rhiwgoch quarry, or any other formed of a number of shareholders say, if any gentlemen who had no share in the concern came forward and told them they should not make .any more duchesses? it would be just as unreasona- ble that a public meeting like this should take into their hands to decide where the market hall should be built. He thought it would be their duty at the next meeting to fix their capital and number of shares, and elect a com- mittee and a secretary, in order at once to commence work- ing. Unless they could get the money, all their speaking would be in vain. The Rev. T. T. JONES proposed, and Mr O. JONES se- conded-" That the next mEeting be held at the British Schoolroom, Dolgaregddu, the time to be fixed afterwards." —Carried nem. con. Mr ROBERT HUGHES proposed, and Mr JOSEPH GRIF- FITHS seconded-" That the thanks of this meeting be given to the chairman."—Carried with applause. 0
DOLGELLEY. COUNTY COURT, WEDNESDAY.-Before A. J. Johnes, Esq., Judge. Number of plaints entered, 65. Most of the cases were disposed of before the registrar. The following was the only case of interest among the remainder.
THOMAS, OF OSWESTRY, V. MRS. GRIFFITH, ANGEL HOTEL, DOLGELLEY. This case was tried at the last County Court at Bala, when Mr William 'Pugh, carrier, was defendant. The action was brought to recover the value of four bags of malt, which were taken by mistake by the carrier to Dol- gelley, and which were alleged to be delivered to Mrs Griffiths. The verdict in the previous action of Thomas v. Rngh, was for defendant, and n»w an action was brought to recover the sum from Mrs Griffiths.—Mr O. D. Hughes appeared for plaintiff Mr G. J. Williams for defendant. Mr Thomas -I know Mrs Griffiths, the defendant, and we had several transactions together. I refer to our ac- count with Mrs Griffiths. I recollect, in the latter end of 1864, sending several pockets of malt per Great Western Railway, viA Corwen to Dolgelley. I sent four bags also to Mr Evan Davies, Corwen. I received a letter from Davies, informing me that they were not received, but sent on to Dolgelley. In consequence of information re- ceived, I sent an invoice to Mrs Griffiths for the malt, dated December, 1864. I produce a copy of it. There is a note at the bottom of the invoice, stating the circum- stance. I heard nothing from Mrs Griffiths in reply. I saw Mrs Griffiths on October 3rd, 1865, about ten months after the invoice was sent. She then paid me 29 on ac- count. The balance then remaining due was 210 4s. She said then she would look what she had in stock, and send an order if she wanted anything. She did not repudiate this account then, nor say anything about its incorrect- ness. I have heard nothing from Mrs Griffiths since, and that was the last journey I made in this district. On the 16th April I sent a letter asking for balance of 210 4s. I did not receive an answer. She repudiated the delivery of the malt for the first time about the 16th of May, 1865. I heard Mrs Griffiths give her evidence at Bala, in the action against Pugh, the carrier. She could not then swear that she had not received the bags. Cross-examined—I wrote the accounts in this ledger as they occurred. I can't say I wrote 1866 at the time. My clerk wrote it. I cannot say it was written at the time. It may be possible that it was not. I don't see that the ink is different. I had some transactions with Mrs Griffiths. I didn't know that she was illiterate. I only saw her once. I cannot say that I was pleased with what took place at Bala, nor with what Mrs Griffiths said there, nor with the result. I received letters from her son repudiating the delivery of the four bags in question. I didn't ask her, the last time I saw her, if she would take the malt that was at the mill. I recollect having con- versation with Mrs Jones, Swan. She said that my traveler had sent malt without proper [orders. and that it was at the mill, and if I would wait six months for the money they would take it. I supplied E. Jones with malt twice, to the value of 220 8s., and Ell 5s. I never asked E. Jones to go to the mill and ask for these four bags. Tne letters produced are in my own or my clerk's hand- writing. The last quantity supplied to him was five bags. Mr W. Pngh delivered them. The last delivery left me on April 7th, 1865, and I believe they were delivered here April 14th. Re-examined—There was nothing that I remember said about the four bags. I saw Mrs E. Jones, Swan, in April, 1865; and that was in-relation to five bags. Their account is squared in my ledger. David Jones said-In 1864, I was clerk to Mr William Pugh, carrier. I know Mrs Griffiths, the defendant. I remember a quantity of malt sent here in mistake from Corwen. It was sent to Mr Mills, the miller. There is a reference in my book with regard to it. T- Griffiths, Dolgelley, four bags of malt." They were delivered to Mr Mills by Mr Pugh's request, to be ground into malt. Mr Mills, the miller, used to come for Mrs Griffiths's malt. I remember delivering malt October 19th, of which this is an entry. L. Griffiths, four bags malt. Evan Jones, four bags malt." I did not see Mrs Griffiths when I found the mistake. Cross-examined—When malt came with the waggon we went to Mrs Griffiths to tell her, and each time she told us to send it to John Mills's. When these four bags came from Corwen Mrs Griffiths did not tell me to deliver those to John Mills. I had no general orders to do so. All the unground malt was generally sent to one of the two mills here, but oftener to Mr J. Mills's. I delivered the four bags in question according to Mr Wm. Pugh's request. I cannot say whether hej had Mrs Griffiths's order to do so or not. Mr Williams called Mrs Griffiths-I live at the Angel Inn, and have had malt from Mr Thomas. I remember hearing of malt that came to this town by mistake. I can't read or write. I recollect Mr Thomas coming to me. I paid him money. I had received four bags about three weeks previous. He brought me a bill for eight ba^s of malt. I told him I would pay for what I had, and that I had heard that some malt had come to the mill by mistake, and that I would take that instead of giving fresh orders. I sent David, my son, to the mill to see if the malt was there. I did not get that malt. Mr Thomas was in haste when I was paying him, and said it was all right if I would take it. Cross-examined—I don't remember when Mr Thomas came to me. I daresay it is on the bill. He brought me a bill for eight'bags. I paid him 29. I thought that was all owing. I don't remember having any invoice with three bags. I can't say if I had an invoice and letter-from him. I don't think I had an invoice from him at alL Re-examined—I don't know what an invoice is. Oh, if it's the same thing as a bill I have had bills from him. I always paid every bill that was brought to me. I didn't know that four bags was 29 12s. I thought by paying 29 I was paying all he asked. David Griffiths—I live with my mother. I remember going to the mill, the day Mr Thomas was here, to see if the four bags were there. I told John Mills that my mother would take the four bags that came from Corwen. He told me that Evan Jones, the Swan, had them. I said "All right, if it was so." Cross-examined—I remember receiving an invoice, in December, 1864, for four bags, and in a month afterwards for another four bags. I knew we only had the first lot. I did not do anything tl»en; in fact I don't think I thought anything more of the matter until Mr Thomas called My mother told him she did not receive the four bags, I believe for the first time, when he was at our house. I remember afterwards receiving a letter from Mr Thomas, asking fo the remittance of 210 4s. I have no doubt I wrote when I received that to repudiate the demand. I wrote several times, and so did my brother. I did not keep copies of my letters, and therefore I cannot say exactly when I wrote them. I went to Mr John Mills. He generally went to Pugh's waggon for the malt. But 1 never knew of his going without being told. Re-examined—I did not give John Mills orders to go for these four bags. Evan Evans, the Swan Inn, said—I remember going to Upper Mill and bringing some malt from there, but. I don't remember now when that was. Cross-examined—I don't remember the time at all now, nor the quantity brought from there. I am almost certain it was four bags. Jbhn Mills-I am a miller at Upper Mill. I remember four bags of malt coming to my mill. Some time after E. Jones came to ask if four bags came to the mill for Mrs Griffiths, and said she had told him to come for them. Cross-examined—E. Jones used to get several lots of malt ground. It was in 1864. I have no account kept, as it <> was paid for at the time. Mrs Griffiths did not authorize me to give them to Evan Jones. She did not tell me anything about it; nor did I ask. These bags were put by with Mrs Griffiths's bags of malt. I gave them to E. Jones as I thought he had Mrs Griffiths's authority to come for them. People are in the habit of sending their malt to the mill, and come for it, and as they pay me at the time I never keep an account of it, nor think of it afterwards. Mr Hughes replied, and the Judge said—The case is perfectly clear for the defendant, except as regards the balance of 123. Mr Hughes applied for a new trial, on the ground that he felt that Pugh's evidence was wanting to connect the link missing as to what took place between him and Mrs Griffiths, before he ordered the malt to be sent to the mill. The Judge declined, on the ground that he could not then prove Mr Mills to be her agent, as her own evidence, and that of Mr Pugh's clerk, went against that supposi- tion. Mr Hughes then applied for costs, as his client had already lost two days with this trial, besides his loss at Bala. The Judge said he could not allow him his costs in such a small matter as 12s., as he had no doubt that sum would have been paid on the asking.
TRE'RDDOL. WESLEYAN CONNECTION.—On the 19th inst., the Wes- levan connection at this place had a large gathering of their members to inaugurate the laying of the foundation stone of the minister's new house. Despite the unfavour- able state of the weather, a very large concourse of people assembled to witness the ceremony. The order of the proceedings was as follows: The members of the Band of Hope formed themselves into a procession about two o'clock, and were joined by the juvenile members of the Sunday School, and paraded through the village, display- ing very beautiful flags with suitable mottoes and devices. About three o'clock they all assembled at the site of the new house, to witness the great event of the day, the lay- ing of the foundation stone, which duty devolved upon Mrs Owen, Dolclettwr, who performed it in masterly style. She was presented with a chastely-executed silver trowel, bearing the following inscription: -"Presented by the trustees to Mrs Owen, Dolclettwr, on the occasion of laying the foundation stone of Wesley Cottage, Tre'rddol. March, 1869." At half-past three all the children were entertained to a good spread of "bara. brith" and tea. At six o'clock a meeting took place to hear the children recit- ing different pieces selected from popular authors. The contractor for the erection of the house is Mr Wooley, Llandinam.
CARDIGAN. TOWN COUNCIL.—A meeting of this Council was held at the Council Chamber on Friday, the 19th-present, Mr J. Thomas (Mayor) in the chair; Messrs T. Davies, T. Edwards, L. James, D. Jones, J. J. Jones, J. Lewis, L. Lowther, and J. T. Mathias. It was resolved that the sum of 250 be paid to the Gas Company for lighting the town during the past year. It was further resolved that the waste piece of land intervening between Pendre and the slaughter-house be enclosed and railed in. A finance committee sat on Friday evening. GREAT GALE.—On Friday evening, the 19th, a terrific gale burst over this place. The morning presented a sombre-like appearance. Towards the afternoon a small drizzling rain began to fall, and soon gusts of wind arose, increasing to a storm of furious violence. The wall of a house, now in building at the North Gate Terrace, was demolished, while boats fishing in the bay for lobsters escaped with great difficulty when crossing the bar, and the men were in imminent danger of their lives.
ABERYSTWYTH. -THE MILITIA.-The permanent staff of the Royal Car- digan Militia, stationed at the Barracks, have during the past week been practising at their butts, Borth, under the command of Capt. B. Lewis. It will be seen by adver- tisement that the recruits of this militia are to report themselves at head quarters on Tuesday, the 6th of April, fourteen days before the regular staff, who meet on the 20th of April. VAGRANCY.—At the Police Court on Monday last, before the Mayor, J. Matthews, Esq., a tramp, giving the name of Maurice Manning, was brought up in custody, and charged with begging in the streets on Saturday.— P.C. Thomas stated that he noticed the man begging in Great Darkgate-street, and saw him call at different houses, asking for alms. Prisoner was committed to Cardigan Gaol for one month, with hard labour. BOARD OF GUARDIANS, MONDAY (March 22nd).- Present: G. W. Parry, Esq. (chairman), Mr W. Jones (vice-chairman), Messrs E. H. Morgan, R. Morris, J. Watkins, J. Jones (Commerce House), J. R. Richards, D. J. Davies, W. James, W. Jones, D. Stephen, L. Jones, D. Roberts, W. Jenkins, Geo. Morgans, J. Thomas, Joel Morgan; Mr A. Hughes (clerk). Drs James and Roberts were also present. The total number of paupers receiving in-door relief for the week ending March 20th was 49; number of tramps relieved on Sunday, March 21st, 19; number of children in the house on Saturday, the 20th, 31; total receiving out-door relief, 420. EXAMINATION OF THE CHILDREN. The following circular was handed to the chairman by the master, with reference to the examination of the children:— Poor Law Board, Whitehall, S.W., March 17,1869. Sir,—I beg to inform you that I intend to visit the Aberystwyth Workhouse on the 23rd March next, at half-past eleven o'clock a.m., for the purpose of examining the children, and I request that yon will have the goodness to acquaint the Board of Guardians, the chaplain, and the teachers, of my intention. I am further to request that the annexed sheet may be detachei and handed to the teachers, with instructions for the careful preparation of the statistics required, before my arrival. The children should be in attendance at the workhouse, with testaments, slates, and copy books. I have the honour to be, &0., T. B. BROWNE, Her Majesty's Inspector of Schools. The CHAIRMAN thought the circular would not apply to this Union, as the children had not been in school in the house; and the master was requested to inform the in- spector that the children had been in the habit of going to the National School.
APPOINTMENT OF SCHOOLMISTRESS. The CHAIRMAN apologized for being absent at the last meeting, stating that he was at the assizes. It appeared that a new application had been received after the Board 0 terminated on the 22nd ult., the day which was appointed by the Board for receiving applications, and at the last meeting of the Board the appointment was adjourned. He (the Chairman) would like to hear the particulars of the new application. The CLERK—The application arrived at seven o'clock on the night of the 22nd ult. Mr MORRIS—The Board at their last meeting were of opinion that the application should be accepted, as it arrived on the day of nomination. Mr J. W ATKINS-I believe the question was left to be decided by the chairman. Mr J ONES-I think the application was very late;. the candidate had plenty of time to apply to the Board. The CHAIRMAN-A difficulty appears to arise here, as no particular time was specified in the advertisement. If the advertisement had stated that applications would be re- ceived at a certain time on the day appointed by the Board, no objection could be raised as the matter stood at pre- sent he thought the new application ought to be taken into consideration. The Board accordingly agreed to admit the new applica- tion, and proceeded to the appointment. Mr W. JONES (vice-chairman) proposed, and it was seconded by Mr E. H. MORGAN, that Miss Mary Morrell was a fit and proper person to fill the office of schoolmistress for the workhouse. Mr R. MORRIS proposed Miss Mary Ann Edwards, Great Darkgate-street, Aberystwyth, as a fit and proper person to fill the office of schoolmistress for the workhouse. The votes of the members were then taken by the chair- man, and were as follows:—Miss Morrell, 13; Miss Edwards, 9. Miss Morrell being declared elected she was called into the room, when The CHAIRMAN (speaking to Miss Morrell) said-It is. m pleasing duty to Infor-n you that you have been elected schoolmistress to this workhouse, and if you will be kind enough to attend here this day fortnight our clerk will inform you of the conditions upon which you are elected. The new schoolmistress then retired. REPORT OF LUNATICS. Mr RICHARD JONES said he wished to call the attention of the Board to the subject of pauper lunatics. About a month ago the Rev. Humphrey Jones was removed: by order of this Board to the Carmarthen Lunatic Asylum. He (Mr Jones) thought it was usual for such authorities to furnish a report of patients committed to their charge, and from enquiries made to the clerk of this Board it appeared that no report had been furnished. He thought it im- portant that a report should; be furnished, and suggested that the authorities of the lunatic asylum be communicated with on the subject. The CHAIRMAN said he did not think it was usual for the authorities to make a report for each individual sent to the asylum, unless requested, as they issued a quarterly report. Mr JONES thought it was desirable that a special report should be made of the case alluded to. The Board ordered their clerk to write for a special re- port in the case of the Rev. Humphrey Jones.
SETTING A MAN UP IN BUSINESS.—"A THOROUGH-BRED DONKEY." The usual relief business was then proceeded with, in the course of which a man named Thomas Jones, aged 69, applied for support from the parish, stating that he had become destitute. The applicant, in answer to the chairman, stated that he had lately been in the umbrella business, but it did not answer, and he wished they would advance him some money to purchase a donkey," to try his luck in the rag and bone business." The CHAIRMAN—How much money do you want? APPLICANT—It will take about £ 2 to buy a donkey. (Laughter.) The CHAIRMAN—I should think you want a "thorough- bred donkey by the sum you mention. (Laughter.) The Board agreed to give the applicant 12s. towards purchasing a donkey. HALF-YEARLY RETURN. The following is a return of the monies paid to the Board by the different parishes for the half-year ending March 22nd :— Aberystwyth, £ 960; Broncastellan, £ 36; Caelan-y-Maesmore, £ 102; Clarach, £ 96; Cwmrheidol, £ 120; Cyfoefihybrenin, £ 168; Cynnillmawr, £ 150; Elerch, £45; Henllys, £150; Issayndre, £ 5)0; Llanafan, £38; Llanbadarn-y-Croyddin Upper, £ 180; Llanbadarn-y- Croyddin Lower, 2258; Llancynfelin, £ 162, Llanddeinol, Llanfihangel-y- Croyddin Upper, 18O; Llanfi- hangel-y-Croyddin Lower, 2300; Llangwyryfon, 9144; 2r y Llanilar, £ 228; Llanrhystid Haminiog, 2168; Llan- rhystid Mevenidd, £180; Llanychaiarn, £ 260 Melindwr, 2102; Parcel Canol, £ 114; Rhostie, £ 33; Trefeirig, 2126; Ty'rymynach, 261; Uchayndre, 954; Vainor Upper, £ 96; Vainor Lower, 2102,-maldng a total of £ 4,826. NEW GUARDIANS. All nominations for guardians, for the ensuing year, to be sent in before the 27th instant. The nomination will take place on the 1st of April, when the new lists of guardians will be published. The next meeting of the Board will be held on the 5th of April. PETTY SESSIONS, WEDNESDAY,—Before J. Matthews, Esq. (Mayor), R. Roberts, Esq. (Ex-Mayor), Capt. Lewis, T. Jones, Esq., and J. M. Davies, Esq. NEGLECTING TO PAY IMPROVEMENT RATES. Richard Williams, farmer, Penyrallt, was charged by Mr Davies, collector, with neglecting to pay lis. 2d. due to the Improvement Commissioners for rates.—There was also a similar charge against Thomas James, quarryman, for neglecting to pay 15s. 6d. due for rates. In each of the cases the parties were ordered to pay at once, and mulcted in costs. CHIMNEY ON FIRE. Mrs Barlow, Lion Hotel, Aberystwyth, was charged by P. C. D. Thomas with permitting one of her chimneys to be on fire, on the 17th inst. Mr O'Halloran said Mrs Barlow had asked him to state that she admitted the chimney was on fire it was caused by accident, through some commercials throwing papers on the fire. The chimney was swept last Christmas. P.C. Thomas said he noticed the chimney of the com- mercial room on fire on the 17th; there was a great deal of soot coming down. Witness went in and told them ° The Bench were of opinion that the chimney was set on fire through carelessness, and they should inflict a fine of 5s. and the costs, adding that they felt very much inclined to keep up to the maximum, which was 10s. Mr O'Halloran—You have only been in the habit of FILTLFEk MavOT—Tbat was certainly the case in several instances, and we found that it tended to increase the practice. STEALING A WATCH AND CHAIN. Mary Lewis, a married woman, was brought up on remand, charged with stealing a silver watch and gold chain, the property of Mrs Margaret Griffiths, at the Sailors' Home public house, on the evening of Saturday last. Margaret Griffiths said—I am the wife of William Griffiths, living in Aberystwyth. Between five and six o'clock last Saturday evening I went to the Sailors' Home public house. When I went into the house I had my watch in my pocket. I was followed into the house by the prisoner, who commenced clipping me around the neck and kissing me. I was not previously acquainted with the prisoner. In about half an hour afterwards I missed my watch. The Mayor-Did you allow her to indulge in those affectionate embraces? (Laughter.) Witness-I did not know who she was. The Mayor—Was she drinking? W Itness- Yes, I treated her to a glass of brandy. The Mayor Was that before, or after the kissing ? (Laughter.J Witness-She was drinking the brandy at the time. I was asked by the prisoner to treat her. Witness continued-I gave information to the police in about a quarter of an hour after I missed the watch. There was no one near me but the prisoner and Mrs DavieF, the landlady. This took place in the back parlour. The watch produced by Sergeant Evans is the one I lost. Eliza Davies said-I am landlady of the Sailors' Home. I remember the last witness coming into my house on Saturday night, between five and six o'clock. Prisoner also came into the house. I saw prisoner clip complainant around the neck. There was no one else in the house at the time. This was in the back parlour. Prisoner had a drop to drink, but not at that time. Complainant had a glass of brandy in the house, and- prisoner had sixpenny worth of whiskey in a bottle, when she came in first. Mrs Griffiths also paid for sixpennyworth of whiskey, which was put in a bottle for the prisoner. By the Bench-They had nothing at all to drink in the back parlour; they went there to sit down. I did not send Mrs Griffiths into the back parlour because she was intoxicated. Mrs Griffiths had a guard around her neck when she came in my house. In about an hour afterwards I noticed the chain was gone. Sergeant Evans said that about eight o'clock on Satur- day evening he received information that Mrs Griffiths had lost a watch; and from further information went in search of the prisoner, whom he found at her own home. Witness charged her with stealing a watch belonging to Mrs Griffiths. Prisoner was locked up and searched, but nothing was found upon her. The officer then went to search the prisoner's house, and on a shelf found the watch and chain now produced. Mrs Griffiths was recalled, and in answer to the Bench said the watch and chain were worth about j615. The usual questions having been put, prisoner pleaded guilty to the charge. The Mayor read a letter containing statements of the prisoner's previous good conduct and honesty, from several parties who had employed her. The Bench said they were very sorry to see a woman like prisoner placed in such a serious position. No doubt drink had been the cause of placing her in that position, and they hoped that this would prove a warning and a lesson to her. She would be sentenced to two calendar months' imprisonment, with hard labour. Prisoner appeared very much surprised at the sentence of the Court, and gave vent to her feelings in the Welsh language. A DISTURBANCE AT THE TABERNACLE CHAPEL.—THE INTRUDER BOUND OVER TO KEEP THE PEACE. Jeremiah Morgan, ship carpenter, aged about 67, was charged by the deacons and elders of the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, called the Tabernacle, as follows :— That the said Jeremiah Morgan did, on the evenings of Sunday, the 14th and 21st instant, disturb certain meet- ings of the church members, of or belonging to a congre- gation of Protestant Dissenters, called Calvinistic Metho- dists, assembled for religious worship in a certain chapel called the Tabernacle, by talking in a loud, vehement, angry tone and manner, such conduct being calculated to incite the said members, deacons, and elders, of the said congregation, to commit a breach of the peace. And, also, that the said Jeremiah Morgan, persisted in attend- ing such meetings of church members after having been expelled and forbidden attending such meetings, whereby the said deacons and elders pray that the said Jeremiah Morgan be bound over to keep the peace." Mr Matthews and Mr Roberts retired from the Bench during the hearing of this case. Mr Atwood for the complainants, and Mr A. Hughes for defendant. Mr Atwood in opening the case said he appeared for a very large and influential body of Dissenters called the Calvinistic Methodists, and the complainants in this matter were the deacons and elders of the Tabernacle Chapel, who were influenced to take these proceedings for the protection of themselves and brethren in the exercise of their devotions. They did not wish to be too severe with the defendant, or else these proceedings might have been taken under a statute which would have rendered the defendant liable to a penalty of £ 20. It was neces- sary that he (Mr Atwood) should explain how the disturb- ance arose. It appeared that some years ago the defend- ant, who was formerly a member of this church, miscon- ducted himself in such a manner that he was obliged to be expelled. He had never since been admitted as a member, but persisted in attending the meetings of the church members, which are called societies, and are gene- rally held after public worship on Sunday evenings and to prevent his going to such meetings persons had to be stationed at the doors of the chapeL His conduct when ad- mitted to such meetings was excessively annoying to the other members. This course was adopted for some weeks, after which it was thought by the deacons that defendant could not be of sound mind, and it was accordingly agreed that he should be admitted to such meetings but not allowed to take any part in the proceedings. He ap- peared to get worse, and on one occasion, as would be shewn by evidence broughti before the Bench, defendant's conduct was of such a character that he had to be hissed, a proceeding which had never before occurred in the chapel. The offence was- greatly aggravated on account of the place where it occurred, which it must be borne in mind was a chapel, set apart for divine worship. He (Mr Atwood) hoped their worships would consider it a case in which defendant should be bound over to keep the peace, and to find sureties in something more than a nominal amount. Mr Philip Williams, stationer, said—I am one of the deacons of the Calvinistic body, and attend the Tabernacle chapel in this town. Defendant is not. a member of our body; he was expelled for misconduct, andnotre-admitted. Ever since he was expelled, he attends in spite of all ar- guments to prevail upon him not to. attend. Persons were stationed at the door for about two months, and eventually he was allowed; to attend as long as he kept quiet. The society meetings are held at the conclusion of the public service. On Sunday night week I was present at the society meeting, and defendant was present. After some parties had spoken defendant got up, and in a very authoritative tone demanded the annual statement of ac- counts. This was quite contrary to. the business of the meeting, and caused much annoyance. to the members. Cross-examined by Mr Hughes-I can't say how long he was a member before he was expected. He might have been a member for about thirty yearns. These meetings are held for religious conversation. Not everyone ad- mitted is allowed to speak. On the night of the 14th, de- fendant spoke out in a loud tone of voice, asking for the accounts. We treated him with contempt. I am not afraid of him, but I can't say but has conduct might in- cite others to a breach of the peace. I was not present when a member said that defendant should be allowed to attend as a person of unsound mind- By the Bench—The accounts are made up yearly, and read in the meetings of the society.. Only members con- tribute to those accounts. Defendant had not contributed to them. Mr D. J. Davies, one of the deacons of the Calvinistic Methodists, stated that he was present on Sunday evening last at the church meeting. Defendant was there. One of the deacons (Mr Matthews) was speaking, and defend- ant made an interruption. Defendant was told he had no right to speak, as he was not a member. Defendant said he would speak, and in the course of the conversation he said to Mr Matthews, Thou art the man, and had better sit down." Witness did not catch what followed, as the members commenced hissing for defendant to sit down. This step was taken in the defence of the mem- bers, and unless he was restrained and bound over to keep the peace, witness was afraid defendant's conduct would incite some of the members to commit a breach of the peace, by putting him out or otherwise. Crossrexamined—Mr Matthews is one of the deacons. There was a subject before the society at the time. A question was addressed to the members, but defendant is not a member. The discretion of the members on Sunday might prevent their committing a breach of the peace. J. Matthews, Esq., said he was one of the deacons of the Tabernacle Chapel, and was present on Sunday, the 20th instant, when the disturbance took place. As the question, "What was the conversation about. had been asked, he would, for the sake of explaining the matter, mention the subject before the Church meeting when the disturbance took place. Of late it had been noticed in the chapel that the younger members of the congregation were rather reluctant to engage in prayer, and it was suggested that a meeting held at half-past seven on Sunday morn- in<rS might induce them to come forward, as the congre- gation would not be quite so large as in the evening. Some years ago such meetings were held, but defendant was the cause of their being stopped. The subject named was be- fore the .meeting when defendant got up to speak. He (Mr Matthews) told defendant he was not a member, and had no right to speak. Defendant said, I have a right to speak, and you have spoken long enough." Witness would not have spoken to defendant on this occasion only he knew that defendant had given them a great deal of trouble at previous meetings, by sImIlar interruptions, and ,s, many times these meetings hadbeen abruptly^ terminated by the conduct of the defendant —Mr Matthews then went on to state that on account of previous bad conduct defendent was expelled from the church. Mr Hughes objected to what occurred previous to the 14th and 20th, and requested that Mr Matthews would confine his remarks to those days. Mr Matthews said he perfectly agreed with the state- ment made by Mr Davies, that defendant's behaviour on the 14th and 20th was of such a nature as might incite some of the members to commit a breach of the peace by turning defendant out of the chapel. Cross-examined—No sensible person would conduct him- himself in the manner defendant did on the 14th and 20th. His conduct had been most unbearable, and on one occasion when the sacrament was, being administered he called out, "Don't give those men the bread and wine; they have been serving the devil for the last three years!" This"1 being the case for complainants, Mr Hughes contended that defendant's conduct. on the 14th and 20th was not of such a nature as required he should be bound over to keep the peace. The Bench consulted together for a few minutes when Mr Davies said he and Mr Jones were of opinion that the case against defendant had been clearly made out, and he would be bound over to keep the peace for twelve months towards the complainants and all her Majesty's subjects, himself in the sum of jE20, and two sureties of 210 each. Mr Hughes—What about costs? Mr Davies-Complainants to pay costs. This terminated the business.
PWLLHELI. POLICE FORCE. The following is General Cartwright'a report :Strength of force, 1; population in 1861, 2,795; area in acres, 1,000; population to one constable, 2,795; area to one constable, 1,000; one head constable, 252; constables, none. This is perhaps the most inefficient force in the district, certainly in North Wales. A super- intendent to superintend himself; inspector of weights and measures without standard measure; lodging houses not registered; no books kept; no superannuation fund; and the fees earned by the police illegally placed to the borough fund. Duties imposed upon one man, who, although active, has impossibilities to contend with. This force is inefficient.

MERIONETHSHIRE POLICE FORCK-The following is General Cartwright's report Strength of force, 27 population in 1861, 38,888 area in acres, 383,581 popu- lation to one constable, 1,493; area to one constable, 15,445. Rates of pay :—Chief constable, 2300 one super- intendent, 2100 one, 275; inspector, 275; others from 28s. to 18s. weekly. The chief constable is allowed 250 per annum for traveling expenses. Extra duties performed by the police :—Inspection of weights and measures and nuisances, and assistant relieving officers for casual poor, of whom 5,644 were relieved, being an increase of 1,992 during the year. The indictable offences reported are fewer than last year, and the detections much in propor- tion. Drunkenness appears to have decreased. There are only 15 beerhouses in the whole county;' but of these three were convicted. There has been no change in the force. The county has done a great deal towards erecting and improving station-houses. Those at Festiniog ana Dinas require improvement, and a new arrangement of the Bala lock-up is contemplated. There has been a change in the higher class by the promotion of an in- spector to the rank of superintendent, which he was fairly entitled to,and a sergeant to the rank of inspector, and several constables have been promoted.. The pay is good, and every encouragement given to keep men in the force, and stimulate them to exertion. The force is efficient." MONTGOMERYSHIRE POLICE FORCE.- General Cartwright reports-" Strength of force, 31; population, 1861, 66,919; area in acres, 483,323 population to one constable, 2,158 area to one constable, 15,591. Rates of pay :—Chief con- stable, £ 250; superintendent, £100; inspector, 285; others from 25s. to 17s. 6d. weekly. The chief constable receives 230 per annum for traveling expenses. Superintendents allowed 236 for wear and tear and keep of horse. No cart allowed except for weights and measures, the cost of which is 22 per annum. Extra duties performed by the police-Inspectors of weights and measures and common lodging-houses. The indictable offences reported to the police have considerably decreased, and the detections are very satisfactory. The drunk and disorderly cases appear much the same in number as in former years. Fourteen public houses were convicted, and out of forty-nine beer- houses, thirteen were proceeded against and nine convicted. One constable resigned during the year. The station- house at Llanfair, so much required, is now in course of being built. One ticket-of-leave man has regularly reported himself. The pay and classification is precisely the same as last year. The second-class constables who have served several years, and are fit for promotion, are kept down until vacancies occur-a point I thought it my duty to bring before the quarter sessions, but with what result I have not been informed. The force is efficient." DENBIGHSHIRE POLICE FORCE. General Cartwright reports as follows of the Police Force of Denbighshire "Strength of force, 59 population, 1861, 104,316; area in acres, 374,303 population to one constable, 1,768; area to one constable, 6,344. Chief constable, 2300; one super- intendent, 2150; one, £120; one, 2105 one inspector; 295; one, 280 pay of others from 27s. to 19s. The chief constable receives 250 per annum for traveling expenses, and the superintendents £50 each for wear and tear of horse, excepting the superintendent at Llanrwst. Extra duties performed by the police Inspectors of weights and measures, common lodging-houses, and nuisances, and assistant relieving officers for casual poor, of whom the large number of 11 254 were relieved, being an increase of 1,718 during the year. The indictable offences reported and detections are nearly the same m number and propor- tion as in former years. The return of drunk and dis- orderly shows a large amount of drunkenness; four public- houses only out of 448 were fined, and out of 211 beer- houses nine were proceeded against and seven fined-a small number in proportion to the drunk and disorderly cases. One constable resigned, and two were dismissed during the year. The part of the prison allotted as a station-house, gives very poor accommodation to the sergeant who resides in it. One ticket-of-leave man has regularly reported himself during the year. After the fearful accident on the line at Abergele, the force was much harassed, and at one time appeared to hve been deficient in executing warrants placed in their hands, but upon inquiry I found it satisfactorily accounted for. The force is efficient."
