THURSDAY, JULY A, 1872. ON Tuesday night Mr.' MIALL made another attempt to induce the House of Commons to afford information respecting the position of the Church of England, necessary to a correct appreciation of the question of disestablishment. In moving for a Royr.1 Commission to ascertain the origin, nature, amount, and application of the property and revenues of the Establishment, the hon. member for Bradford, wisely abstained from making an attack upon the ecclesiastical hierarchy to which he and Nonconformists generally are opposed. j The object and scope of his motion were confined to the elicitation of facts, which it is desirable to ascertain upon authority, before proceeding further in a direction that must ultimately lead to the opening-up of the subject in its fullest amplitude with a view to the entire severance of Church and State. His speech formed only a tentative part of the campaign- against the Establishment which must sooner or later occupy the attention of the Legislature. He devoted himself to enquiry and the pursuit of knowledge, hidden with more or less success, from the public at large. As a preliminary to active warfare the information sought would be extremely valuable, and this circumstance probably operated strongly to lead Churchmen, on both sides of the House, to enter into an unholy alliance to defeat his purpose. Neither Tories nor Whigs can be congratulated upon the result. They have defeated the motion, but they have not succeeded in strengthening the Episcopacy. If they felt that their position was tenable, and that no danger could arise from an explicit and frank statement of the true state of afiairs, they might well have consented to the appointment of the Commission sought. But Churchmen know that the revelations would be of a most astonishing character that particulars re- specting enormous abuses could not fail to be brought to light; that matters connected with mis- appropriation, spoliation, and other abuses of funds, originally intended by donors for the specific purpose of teaching religion or im- parting instruction in the Scriptures, would be dragged from obscurity, and they made common cause against the bold, painstaking reformer who virtually challenged them to publish their accounts. Now, we believe that if the genius of spiritual life be in a Church, and that it is.possessed of a vital organisation inherent in itself, the signs of such vigour "would be made apparent rather in acts of candour than in those of reticence and exclusivenes3. Burdened as the Church is with the consciousness of wrong-doing, and ashamed of the degrading enormities peculiar to its temporal system, its leaders naturally shun i the scrutinlting gaze of the Nonconformist leader. It would not do to reveal the true state of affairs, and the evil day was postponed for a time, only to dawn upon its members with still more ominous portent. At the outset of his speech, a frantic but futile attempt was made to count out the House. This ruse, however, which is all too common when other tactics fail, did not succeed, and the quiet, undemonstrative, but intensely logical speaker, was permitted to proceed. Declaring that he was acting on Mr. GLADSTONE'S advice of last year, the honourable gentleman said he- was anxious to convert public opinion to Dis- establishment. To do this effectually, and to carry out the suggestion of the PREMIER in a prac- tical way, he believed the first step was to get at the facts of the financial condition of the Estab- lishment, hitherto shrouded in mystery, notwith- standing the facilities offered by the Jaw for ob- taining partial insight into details. He contended that the State had a right to call for this informa- tion, upon the ground that the Church was a national institution, and the defenders of the Estab- lishment, to use a familiar illustration from SHAKE- SPEARE, were hoisted by their own petards. Avowing themselves to be the Church par excellence, it is impossible to conceive any reasonable grounds for refusing to acquiesce in the irfotion. The Church claims to be national in its action, but exclusive and worse than sectarian when the administration of its funds is called in question. As a consequence expendiency was brought to the aid of its sup- porters when principle was proved to be wanting, and clamour silenced argument by its blatant voice. The occasion also afforded Mr. MIALL an opportunity of pointing to the origin of tithes, which will be found to have grown out of the action of the State; and he especially called the notice of the House to glebe lands and the extent of new endowments. It was in vain, however, that Mr. MIALL pleaded at the bar of a prejudiced tribunal. Like GOETHE, he cried out, with the earnestness of his nature, for "more light," only to find that a settled resolve existed on the part of the House that he country should be kept as far as possible in the dark. In his efforts the member for Bradford was ably seconded by Mr. LEATHAM, whose denunciation of the evils connected with capitular revenues was alike emphatic and just. Pointing to the cathe- drals, and going far beyond his equable leader in warmth and scornful sarcasm, the hon. member for Huddersfield quoted Lord HARROWBY, who had said he defied any one to put his finger on a cathedral since the time of St. AUGUSTINE that had contributed largely to evangelisation; and reminded the House that the Bishop of PETERBOROUGH, at the Church Congress, recently held at Norwich, had declared his belief that they were of use, "principally to cultivate canons and grow vergers." The people of Wales have not very far to go for an illustration of the truth of the prelate's avowal, and will agree with Nonconformists .generally, that it is lamentable ill the extreme such splendid fanes, notwithstand- ing the exceptional efforts of a few liberal-minded clergymen, should be comparatively useless in the practical work of religion, and that those who minister in them with perfunctory zeal, should be content to leave their architectural splendours and florid musical services to kindle devotional feelings by mere aesthetic influence. Defeated as in Mr. MIALL was, he was accompanied to the lobby by a goodly muster of thoughtful men. Nearly i a hundred members. voted for the motion, in the fullest belief that" the widest extent of accurate knowledge of facts will do no llarm to that which is true in itself." When we take into consideration tlat the whole of the minority have laid -their hands upon the plough, and will not turn back that they are men of de- termined purpose, exercising immense influence in the country and resolved to accomplish their de- sign, it is impossible not to take heart of grace, and look forward with hope. Many to whom they are opposed can give no reason for their votes except that they desire to serve party, or are influenced by a blind faith in the efficacy of a State-paid Church, Others, animated by a Quix- otic spirit, simply tilt at windmills, amuse them- selves with cock-crowing, and beat the air, when- ever Political-Dissenters address the Houpe, be- cause it is the fashion of heedless, namby-pamby legislators to "undertake a crusade against them. But the irresistible tidet-I of public opinion will not be stayed by the mandate of dreamy politicians supine upon the shore; the Estab- lishment cannot strengthen its case by throw- ing dust into the eyes of Nonconformists bent upon obtaining particulars which it is the right of every member of the State to know clerical ostriches may bury their heads in the sand, but they will not hide themselves from their pursuers by the foolish act; and Churchmen may defy scrutiny, but they cannot stifle enquiry. Next year the motion will be made again, and probably vvith more satisfactory results. The great ques- tion of Disestablishment is growing more impor- tant every hour, and enlists the sympathies of all classes with ever-increasing effect. The Press and the Pulpit are at work. in the matter; the foremost minds of the age are bent upon solving the problem; the movement has received the sanction of many enlightened members of the Church itself, and before long it will evoke an ex- pression of the national will to an extent unknown in connection with political or religious agitation, since nations in the days of CHARLES MARTEL, were aroiised to a sense of their independence, and myriads, in the age of PETER the HERMIT, were sent in tumultuous enthusiasm across the civilised world to the rescue of a shrine.
NEWPORT SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION. To-morrow, a contest of no ordinary interest will Le waged iu Newpftrt, and the ratepayers will havo to decide which of two candidates shall represent them at the Board. For several weeks past, the question at issue and the principles involved,, have been discussed, argued, and debated by both parties to the conflict, with an extraordinary amount of zeal, energy, and perhaps ability, so far as some of the advocates are concerned. Questions of so intricate and perplexing a nature Lave seldom, if evtr, characterised any specific Act of Par- liament as those which surround and invest the Ele- mentary Education Act, and it is not a little surprising therefore, that the bulk of the electors of Newport should require to be elnca.te.1 into a clear comprehen- sion of their duty in this all important crisis. Much has been written, and much more said, of the claims of the respective candidates, who are put forward as the representatives of conflicting interests. One the one band, Col. Lyne is the chosen candidate of Liberal-Churchmen, and the Dissenting communities in general, whilst his opponent, Mr. Mitchell is the nominee of a clique, and stands before the electors as itho"represeiitative-.of the High Church, Ritualistic, and Romish section of the community. The contest is ostensibly based on other grounds. Colonel Lyne's pledged policy is non-sectarian education, the reading of the Dible, and non-payment of fees in o denominational schools. Mr. Mitchell is the unflinch- ing advocate of sectarian (religious) education, and the payment of fees in denominational schools. On these issues, so far as the School Board is concerned, the elec- tion virtually depends. There is, however, another aud a political aspect, in which the contest may be viewed, and it cannot be disguised but that, as an ulterior object, the probable result of th6 next Parliamentary election is to be gauged by the results of the present contest. The Tories have selected as their next Parlia- mentary candidate Mr. Thomas Cordes, a partner with Mr. Mitchell, and it is publicly affirmed that the latter gentleman is put forward as a test of Conservative strength. Tho Xoucobformists repudiate any political designs, and' base the election on its proper principle, wisely contending that it is purely by an education question. They strongly believe, and naturally so, that the return of Mr. Mitchell to the School Board would inflict upon them, gross injustice, inasmuch as they would be called upon to pay for teaching religious dogmas in which they do not believe, and which, if generally promulgated, would produce disastrous results in this country. An unholy alliance, for religious purposes, has been formed between the Roman Catholics and High Church party, whose selfish motives are but too apparent. Mr. Mitchell's strongly Ritualistic tendencies are of such a nature as to leave no doubt of the class of training which he would support in elementary schools, and hence it behoves all who support religious liberty and equality to oppose, by every means in their power, the election of a candidate who would uphold the teaching of Romish doctrines in rate-aidyd Catholic schools, and Ritualism •in rate-aided Church of. England schools. Mr. Mitchell is opposed to School Board schools, and if his policy were pursued, the'ratepayers would not only have to pay for the education of the poor friendless children, who would be sent to a School Board school; but an enormous drain would be made on their pockets for the education of thejjmass of children of needy Roman Catholic parents, and others who may be allured to the Romish as well as Church of England schools. It has been proved to demonstration that if the poiicy of Colonel Lyne and his party be adopted, the cost to the ratepayers and the borough will not exceed lid. in the X, whilst the cost to the ratepayers, if Mr. Mitchell's policy is pursued, will at the most moderate estimate amount to Gd. in the JB, with a prospect of I more. With such a prospect, can it be possible that those upon whom the burden of taxation falls so heavily will be induced to give their support to the Mitchellite party ? We trow not; nor can we believe that the electors will prefer an untried to a tried representative. Up to the present Itime Mr. Mitchell has manifested but little interest in the welfare of the borough. His energies have for some time past been chiefly expended in the decora- tions of Llanvrecha church—a [really ritualistic temple, and in antiquarian researches. Colonel Lyne is a long- tried servant of the ratepayers, in several capacities; | has been the most stmmous advocate for a reduction of the rates, so long as the prosperity of trade and COlll. merce was not crippled thereby. If past services are to be takeu into account, or if honest principle was to be regarded as a criterion, then there can be no doubt as to the result of the contest to-morrow, when Colonel Lyne will be elected, and Mr. Mitchell be the rejected candidate. Nonconformists have only to be true to themselves to obtain not only ja large majority, but to achieve a splendid victory.
THE WELSH CHOIR IN LONDON. To-day the members of the South Wales Choral Union will enter upon the competition at the Crystal Palace, to which the inhabitants of the Principality have been looking forward with considerable hope and expectation. They will be received in London by Mr. Osborne Mor- gan, Mr. H. Richard, Mr. Fothergill, Mr. E. M. Richards, ami other members of Parliament connected with South Wales, and hospitably entertained. The musical arrangfiments will be under the direction of Mr. Brinley Richards, and the solo singing is to be en- trusted to Miss Edith Wynne and Miss Annie Edwards. Sir Steradale Bennett, Mr. Hullah, and Mr. Hemy Leslie are expected to be. present, and tho audience will doubtless, include a very large proportion of vis4ors resided in, or/connected with, the Prin- cipality. As our readers have already been made acquainted with the pieces to be rendered and the con- ditions under which the competition for the valuable prize will take place, we need only say that the mem- bers of the choir have been followed by the most ardent aspirations for their success, and that whatever may be the result, they may calculate upon the grateful appre- ciation of their efforts to maintain the honour of Wales on the part of every class and order of their couBtry- men.
CARDIFF WORKING MENS FLOWER SHOW. The show, which took pltice.ye^terday in the Drill- hall, Cardiff, naturally enoUg^t attracted considerable attention, not only on account of its intrinsic valu9 as a proof of the social improvement of the workiug classes, but as affording an indication of the progress made by the society which has for its object the encouragement of a fondness for flowers by the offer of prizes for their successful culture. No doubt the effect of .the stimulus given has been to develope into aciive rivalry the spirit of emulation among a class whose opportunities of adding to the attractiveness of their homes are few, and who possess but little leisure for this humanising pursuit. It is most satisfactory to know that, this year, the show is better than was the last; that greater taste has been displayed in the arrangement, and higher skill in the cultivation of the flowers, and that signs are not wanting of an earnest- ness of purpose on the part of the exhibitors, without the existence of which not even a flower show of humble pretensions could claim to be an aesured success. As a matter of course many ministers of religion wero present taking an active part in the proceediugs of the day. They doubtless find that men and women who take au interest in the growth of cur common flowers, are readily influenced by their teachings, and th tt thu view obtained through Nature up to Nature's God, is provocative of a desire to learn still more of Him who clathed the lilies of the field with a beauty which all the glory of Solomon could not surpass. It is en- couraging to think that in the midst of the bustle and hardship of their lives, the toil-worn workers for daily bread can turn their attention to this t^bghtfal recreation. It is evident that a primrose is some- thing better than a mere li yellow primrose and nothing more" to the Jacob Bel^s of this locality, There were proofs at the show that artistic qualities exist in connection with the critical discernment neces- sary to a successful development of the chief "points" of a plant, among the working classes and when we take into consideration the dilhculties under which they labour in rearing them, it cannot be denied that conai- derable credit is due to the exhibitors. During the afternoon the Marquis and Marchioness of Bute visited tbe show. The attendance was very good throughout the day, and particularly after six o'clock, when the spacious hall was crowded to excess. The hon. secretaries, the Rev. J, H. Prothero and illr. E. H. Cox, discharged their onerous duties in a commendable manner, and much of the success of the show is due to their exertions. In addition to the numerous exhibitions by the competi- tors, a choice selection of flowers and plants from the; grounds of the Marquis of Bute decorated the room. I whilst a number of rare plants from Mr. Treseder's added to the attractions of the Show. The judges were Mr. Treseder, Mr. Cox (Lord Bute's gardener), Mr. Gaskell, Mr. Drane and Mr. Hatch (New Cemetery). We append a list of their awards which W believe gave universal satisfaction.

MERTHYR BOARD OF HEALTH. The usual meeting of this board was held vesterday,. when there were present— Messrs. W. Joue.s (c, G. Overt Ill, G. Marfiu, II. Harrison, W. Ho-.relis, J. W. James, J. Gobe, W. Goaid, J. Jain-R, and Thomas. Jenkins. The minutes of the laift meeting were read aud con- firmed. The recommendation of the Finance Committee to accept the tender of Air. \V. James for supply of stores for tne use of the pumping eugine uf Peutvwaiu for the ensuing year was confirmed. The Cierkreported that he had considered the matter- of the Market-square, as'desired at tha last meeting, He had written to the trustees on the subject as directed, and they had reread thrffc if it- were allowed to stand over a little longer they thought that matters might, be arranged between them and the Board to carry out the desired arrangement. Messrs. Jones and Jepson, contractors for the WB-, struction of the sewage drainage work, appeared before the Board to ask for an extension of time for the eom- pletion of their contract, and it; was understood that ten weeks from date should be allowed for the completion of the contract, after which time the penalty would be enforced should the work nt be completed. SURVEYOR'S ItEPORT. I. The report of the surveyor was then read, by which) it appeared that during the last quarter 5,870,000 gallons of water, of the value of Gs. lid., had been nsed for motive power and machinery, and 2,956,000 gallous, of the value of £ 99 lis. Sd., for other purposes. The especial charges for water not measured nad been £ 6 5s., and the meter rents lia l been £ 72 8s. making the total receipts under this head £ 264 6s. 3d.r against £229 18s. lOll. the previous quarter, being an increase of £:;4 7s. 5d. During tlie current month Messrs. Jones and Jepson, uuder their contract, had completed sewage drain work to the amount of £541 Is. i.I., of which sum £48G 9s. 2d. was now due to them. The total value of the work executed by Messrs. Jones and Jepson up to the 30th of June, under their con- tract, had been 28. lid., and the estimate of the whole work for which they had contracted was t7,000. A list was given of the houses for which new drains, connecting with the sewage system, were immediately required, and the report stated that notice of the in- tended construction had been given to .the relators in the Chancery suit. In accordance with instructions issued at the last meeting, a list was given of the- j streets and places in Merthyr, Abercanaid, and Troed- yrhiw, not being highways repairable by the Board. j The Surveyor reported that the only suitable place for shows and exhibitions beside the Market-square was a portion of the field, near the iishpoad, it Breoon- road. He recommended that some pigs should be pur- chased to consume the cabbage leaves and refuse vegetables on the irrigation farm. Sundry building; plans were passed, one being for ths erection of 34 houses in Glendower-street, Dowlais, by Ill" 3 Dow- lais B-tilding Society. MEDICAL OFFICER'S liEPOTJT. The Medical Officer's report was tlnn read, from which it appeared that during the fortnight ended 29th June, 201 fresh cases of sman-pox h:11 been reported he had also discovered that 44 fatal cas;s which had not previously been reported by the medic d officers had. occurred during the quarter, and these added to the' number last aunouilced, 2,158,•would make a total of 2,403 eases since the outbreak of toe ipidrniu; 31 occurred during the fortnight, making a total of 299 since the outbreak. The pestilence was now chiefly confined to the Towfi aud Plymouth wards, The Small pox Hospital at Duwiais had been closed, but it was found necessary to keep open the west wing for the purpose of receiving nine persons jvho were ill of enteric fever. OUTBREAK OF TYPHOID FEYICIL AT DOWLAIS. The Fever Arrangement Committee reported the outbreak of typhoid fever atDowlais, and that the staff of the hospital had to be kept up in consequence. They had written to request that Dr. Oresswell would be good, enough to continue to give his services as. honorary surgeon to the hospital, as he had previously dond during the prevalence of small-pox; and he nad re- plied in the aQimative that he should be most hippy to do so.—Dr. DYKI: remarked that all the cåses, of typhus fever that had as yet broken out at Dowlais, were in houses where there was either an overflowing: cesspool or a nuisance arising from imperfect drain traps. SUALI.-POX AT CEFN. The CHAIRMAN regretted to have to inform the Board that small-pox bad broken out with great virulence at Cefn. Five cases had occurred «uly yesterday and he had .been desired by the inhabitants of that place to allow some of their patients to be accommodated in the Merthyr hospital, as the disease had so much decreased here. He did not know what the feeling of ihu Board might be on the subject, and he felt some difficulty in asking it; kut there was no Local Board at Ceb, and the only sanitary authority besides tha Guardians, who- were quite unable to cope with the matter, con- sisted of the ratepayers themselves. Some discus- sion ensued on this point, many objections -being- raised but ultimately it was decided that extreme cases of small-pox might be removed to the Merthyr hospital in the ambulance provided for that purpose by the Merthyr Board of Health, all costs of removal, maintenance, medical attendance, &c., to bo defrayed by the Yayuor pvrisli authorities; this per- mission only to extend for a fortnight, and subject to the express condition that tho Yaynor authorities take immediate steps to provide accommodation for them- selves. THE KATE. Til3 Collector's sëùtellllt, showed the pmount to be collected on this account during the past quarter was £1,400 5s. of which £1,3;)[) 7s. 7d. had been col- lected, some £H3 had been allowed for uninhabited houses, and there was a small balance overdue. I Nil l K in T T E X T FILTRATION. The CHAIRMAN read a communication which he had received from Mr. Bailey Benton, requesting permission to print a circular inviting other gentlemen who took an interest iu .the subject to visit the sewage farm in company with the members of the Royal Agricultural Society, to give them an opportunity of seeing the sys- tem of intermittent filtration, as practised on the farm, in full work. The appplicatiou was granted. The Chrk read a communication from the Wimbledon Local Board, stating that the Board was about adopt- ing the system of intermittent sewage in vogue here, and asking for permission for the Surveyor to attend, before the Board and give certain information which they desired to obtain. TLe required permission was. grantee. THE EEOATTA AT PENTWYN. An application, was read from the Merthyr Boating Club fcr permission to avail themselves of the space immediately surrounding the lake at Dolygaer, en the day oj the forthcoming regatta; and make a small charge per head to each person, for the purpose of re- plenishing their funds, which were in rather a delicate condition, and to make up some prises to be roved for on the occasion. This gave,risG to a very animated discussion on the principle of denying rate- payers the right to make use of their own property, and eventually the application was negatived by a majority of six to four. The CHAIRMAN said he was strongly in favour of encouraging tbe club. The regatta afforded almost the only outing they had in this neighbour- hood, and it was always thoroughly appreciated by the people. The young fcien who composed the club were out of money Dy it, and he thought it only fair to let them do this in order to encourage them. When the meeting broke up, the Chairman in a very practical manr.er applied to those members who had opposed the application of the boating club for 2. private sub -cap- tion.
THE ALLEGED MANSLAUGHTER iT NEWPORT. Yesterday morning, Edward Jones, Humpag, was- brougat up before Mr. Alderman Homiray an6 Dr. Morgan, at the Borough Police Court, and drdy charged with the manslaughter of Mrs. Sarah Morgan, on the- 22nd iltimo. Mr, Cathcart appeared for tho prisoner. Mr. Superintendent Huxtable applied that the pri- soner should be remanded till Monday, inasmuch as, he had only been apprehended on the previous evening. The Magistrates' Clerk: What have yoir to say, Mr- Cathead. Mr. athcart: Only to ask that he should be ad- mittedto baii. There is yet no charge against him,. and I bink, therefore, he is entitled to bail. The Magistrates' Clerk said the only shape the. case- could tike at present was that the Superintendent of Police siould take the prisoner before the Coroner. asked that his client should be at liberty mtil the charge was duly preferred against him. The Magistrates' Clerk said lie was in custody of the police, wiose place it was now to take him before the Coroner, and it would be for the Corouer to decide whether ie should be admitted to bail. The Btnch instructed Mr. Superintendent Huxtable to take he prisoner before the Coroner, and he was. then reubved.
