THE C 'X'"RN!T AT LLANGOLLEN.—BESTJLT. John B triou\ a b'.ia-! man. was in custody charged with having stolen a slate and figures valued 8i. and 2a. 2d. in money, the properties of Mr. Severs. Mr. Sherratt appeared for the complainant and said both Mr. Severs and Mr. Barlow were blind and were giving concerts round the country in aid of the Vv'ilber- Iorce School for the blind at York. Mr. Barlow was en 4I-(r. Sevsrs as a vocalist together with his wife v, was similarity afficted. East week a concert was an jounced to be given at Llangollen and 2s. 2d. was advanced by Mrs. Severs to Mr. and Mrs. Barlow, to pav ihtir fare to Elanyollen. At che rooms at Llan- gofie' -n the evening of the concert a large number of ladie; < -;<' gentlemen had assembled and they waited some tiiiie for Mr. Barlow. He did not arrive, and the concert could not be given and the nionty taken at the doors had to be returned, the whole affair being con- tide re swindle. Mr. Severs stated he was the responsible manager of the concerts and on the 10th inst. he announced that a concert would be given at Llangollen. They had in the hall a ic,rge and respectable audience, and in con- sequence of Barlow absenting himself and taking with him a vUte of figures used by the blind for the purpose of thv./ing their system of working arithmetic, the money taken at the door had to be returned. Defendant said that the slate was never in Wrexham durin- the second visit, and could not therefore have been uiken from Wrexham as stated in the summons. Mrs. Severs proved having paid defendant the 2s. 2d. -,i t,,) Ll"n -on. for fares to Liangoiien. The Mayor after a short consultation with his broth.1 Magistrates said they had decided to dismits the case, and they were sorry to see two gentlemen affll cted with the same infirmity in the position of complainant and defendant he thought they might have agreed better. He reprimanded Barlow for his conduct in not attending to the concert at Llangcllen. ASSAULT. Mart/ Davits, a young woman, was summoned by an elderly woman, named Ann Owens, for an assault. The persons live in Tuttle-street. It appeared that on the previous Saturday the parties met in a shop, and after a few words the assault was alleged to have been committed. Defendant admitted having struck complainant with » poker, but alleeed that she did not do so until com- plainant had thrown an oyster knife at her and cut her forehead. Several witnesses were called, and the effect of their evidence was that defendant was very determined, and returned several times to the complainant with the poker. The Bench were of opinion that the assault was a most detenidfted one, and therefore fined defendant 21s. and Hosts, é'ie alternative being 21 days' imprisonment. TRANSFER. The nit-door license of the retail house known as the j Rhosil 'u Depot was transferred to Mr. James Atkin from Mr. Ralph. ,? ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. A tan Stmt, a young woman, of Bangor Isycoed, was brouL-lrl; kefore the to answer the above charge. Harriett Taylor, Pontuttle. stated that on Tuesday week he was standing by the shop of Mr. Francis, Hope-street, when ihe defendant and some others came up. Witness charged her with bavin: poison in her hand, which she denied. Eventually witness en- deavoured to take it away. She succeeded, and after tfoxt -fendant said, Well, if I can't have that I will ha ? r'Is," and then drank something out of a bottle. In further e xamination witness said she did not know defendant was going to poison herself. It was a young woman, who was with defendant, who told her that she had unison. Defendant told witness that she had been thinking of poisoning herself for sometime, and it was owing to McCloud, a police-constable. Sergeant Lindsay stated that shortly after seven on the day in question he found defendant lying in Hope- street. Whilst there she vomited, and there was a strong smell of phosphorous. He got defendant re- moved to the station-house. Mr. Edisbury then came and endeavoured to administer something, but she bit the bottle, and a great portion of the stuff was lost. Mr. Edisbury fetched some more and administered that. Afterwards defendant again vomited. On becoming better she said she had resolved for some time to poison herself. Mr. Edisbury, chemist, stated that on the day named a policeman came to his shop, and in consequence of what he heard and saw he sent for a doctor. Knowing the corrosive power of the phosphorous he ventured to administer an emetic. She bit the first bottle, and a quantity of the emetic was lost. He then gave her another. Defendant had been to his shop with a receipe. It was an ordinary one from country folks for rheumatism The medicine was of a very irritating character, but was not poisonous. He heard her on the road to the Infirmary calling for McCloud, and saying, Let me die." Dr. E\ ton-Jones stated that he was called, and applied the pump. The phosphorous paste was an exceedingly irritating thing, and must have burnt defendant's mouth, windpipe, &c. She must have suffered greatly. The matron of the Infirmary had told him that de- fendant had been well-behaved, and been very penitent. She had signed the pledge, and promised to be better. Mr. Edisbury said she asked his assistant for a powder (vermin killer) which contained strychinine, but seeing her in drink he gave her the drink instead. Had she had the powder she would have been dead in a few minutes. The magistrates commended the discretion of Mr. Edisbury's manager, and also the part taken by Mr. Edisbury and Dr. Eyton-Jcnes. The mother of the defendant said her daughter had been a good girl until lately, but recently she had got into bad company in Wrexham. The magistrates adjourned the case for a week in the hope of obtaining security for the defendant's good behaviour, and in the meantime she will remain in the infirmary. THURSDAY.—Before the Mayor (Edward Smith, Esq.) and T. C. Jones, Esq. DRUNKENNESS. Thomas Francis, labourer, Tuttle-street, was charged by P.C. John Jones with being drunk and disorderly in Y orke-street on the previous night. Discharged with a caution.
COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS. MONDAY.—Before T. Ll. Fitz-Hugh, Esq. (chairman), I Colonel Meredith, Captain F. G. Barker, T. P. Jones- Parry, and Edward Evans, Esqrs. ( ATTENDANCE CASES. I Thomas Price and Evans Williams were ordered to send their children to school, on the application of Mr. James Phennah, relieving-officer for Adwy district. The magistrates also ordered the children of John and Issac Daries to attend school. Mr. William Evans, relieving-officer, appeared. A DEAR RIDE. Edward Hoosan, an elderly man, was summoned by P.C. Wynne for riding without reins. The officer stated that the offence took place on the 11th inst., in Bersham. Defendant, in answer to the charge, said he was driving a cart laden with timber, and had only gone on the cart to tighten the ropes, which had given way. The Bench fined him 5s. and costs. ON A WARRANT William Broad, collier, was brought up, charged by P.C. Wynne with being in possession of a net suitable for poaching. Defendant was lawfully searched by the officer at the same time as another man, who was con- victed at the last court, and prisoner now offered a similar excuse, viz., that of a day's ferretting having been given him he was going to the place at the time he was stopped by the police-officer. Prisoner fined £1 and lis. costs. SYSTEMATIC DAMAGE. Robert Williams, a little boy residing at Bwlchgwyn, was charged by Mr. R. H. V. Kyrke, Nantyffrith Hall, with malicious damage. Mr. Kyrke stated that owing to the constant and considerable damage he was receiving to his wood he reluctantly brought the case before the magistrates. He went into his wood and found two boys, one was in the act of cutting some of his trees that boy ran away, but the other one stood his ground. He found that there had been 14 larch trees of 14 or 15 years' growth de- nuded of all their lower branches. Defendant said he went with the boy who stood his ground, mentioned by Mr. Kyrke, named John Price, to help him to carry away the timber. John Price was called by Mr. Kyrke, and he gave corroborative evidence. The Bench fined defendant 10s. and costs, and ordered him to pay the damages, Is., as assessed by Mr. Kyrke. THE WEAKER VESSEL ROUSIZD. Mary Roberts, Nant, was summoned by an old man, named John Ellis, for an assauit. Mr. Sherratt appeared for the plaintiff, and, from the evidence offered, it wouia appear tnat -riiis is tne owner of a pony, which is kept in a field by Mrs. Roberts' house. The boys in the neighbou»hood are very fond of annoying this pony, and on the day of the assault, Ellis found a number of boys teasing it. He ran to them, when they separated, and some ran into Roberts''house. He went there and asked if they were in. Roberts replied by calling him some hard names, and concluded by throwing a poker at Ellis' breast. He then beat a retreat followed by the woman, who flung several stones at him, and he, in self-defence, seized her by the hair and flung her down. Defendant was fined 2s. 6d. and costs. STEALING A SHOVEL. George Field, labourer, was charged by the Aber- derwyn Brick and Tile Company with stealing a shovel, valued at 3s. 4d. Mr. Thomas Henry Sharp stated he was managing partner of the firm, and the shovel produced was his property. It was taken away on the 16th of the present month, and was missed on the following day. It was taken from tlic nsar ths boilers. tu6n g&ve in- formation to the police, and a few days after Sergeant Vaughan brought the prisoner to the office, and witness said, I am very surprised that you took it." Prisoner said, "I did not take it wilfully. P.S. Vaughan stated he arrested the prisoner in his lodgings at Ponkey. In answer to the charge, he said, I did do it, but I was beerish at the time." The Clerk here said that the judgment must be lelivered in Ruabon, the offence having taken place in ( ;h,tt district. Prisoner was bound over in his own recognizances in no to appear at Ruabon, on the 5th of December next, ;o receive sentence.
.d WREXHAM SCHOOL BOARD. ELECTION OF CLERK. A meeting of this body was held in the Council Chamber, on Tuesday last. There were present Mr. Chas. Hughes (chairman), Dr. Williams, Messrs. Cole- man, C. Itocke, John Gittins, Walter Jones, T. Bury, and John James (clerk). On the reading of the minutes in reference to the resignation of the Clerk, several members expressed a desire that a resolution expressing their thanks to Mr. James for his past services should be entered on the minutes. Eventually the following resolution was passed, on the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Dr. Williams That the Board, upon the retirement of their Clerk, Mr. John James, express their regret that he finds it necessary to resign his appointment, and at the same time they desire to place upon record their sense of the efficient, courteous, and thoroughly satis- factory manner in which the duties of the clerkship have been invariably performed by him from the formation of the Board." Mr. JAMES briefly responded. The next business was the election of a new Clerk. There were five applications, Mr. Ashton Bradiey being the only solicitor who made application. Mr. WALTER JONES moved that Mr. Ashton, ftradley be elected. He thought none of the other applicants were so fitting as Mr. Bradley, who had worfiiis spurs already in connection with the Free Librasy, and he thought this would be a fit and proper recognition for his labour in the cause of education. Mr. T. BURY seconded the motion. He quite agreed with what Mr. Walter Jones had stated, and he cer- tainly ventured to think that the office would be better filled by a legal gentleman than by a layman. (Hear. hear). He had great pleasure in sup- porting Mr. Bradley because he knew that he dis- tinguished himself in his examination and passed in honours, and since then he had shown ability on those occasions when the public had had an opportunity of judging. (Hear, hear). Mr. GITTINS said he was not prepared to oppose Mr. Ashton Bradley, but he wished to say that he quite believed that if Mr. John Davies was elected he would make a capital clerk. Mr. COLEMAN thought it would be well if they could act unanimously, and what Mr. Bury had said of Mr. Bradley was certainly very commendatory. Dr. WILLIAMS thought it was important that they .-should have a legal gentleman who, he thought, could guide them better than one who was not in the law. Mr. HacKE said he felt the force of those remarks or lie should have been in favour of the clerk and visitor being combined in one man. The motion was then put to the meeting and Mr. Ashton Bradley was unanimously elected. Mr. Bradley was at once sent for, and on his arrival the CHAIRMAN informed him that he had been elected clerk, and expressed the hope that he would win the esteem of the Board and the public as their late clerk had done. Mr. BRADLEY said he was much obliged to them for electing hiin as their clerk, and it would be his endeavour to give them satisfaction. The following cases were then considered. In most of them the excuse was, want of money, with a promise to send the children in the future. Mr. Lindnp was asked to watch the cases, and report at the next Board :— To the Members of the Wrexham School Board. Gentlemen.—As you have business to transact to-day besides listening to charges of irregular attendance, I have brought before you as few cases of that class as I possibly could. 1.—Michael Penderiuest, labourer, IG, Mary Ann Square, arah eleven last March, has been absent from school six consecutive wepks made two attendances last week. Mary, nine last January, nearly as great a defaulter as Saraii; Winifred, seven last July, 44 attendances in a quarter; Patrick, five last- July, has made 3 attendances in a quarter. This is the fourth time for this case to be brought before the Board during the present year. There is always an improve- ment after the parent appears before the Board, and then a falling off again. In this respect it is the worst case I am ac- quainted with. 2.—Patrick Keenan, labourer, 26, Yorkshire Square (now 35, Picton Terrace), Phillip, ten last April, has made 36 at- tendances in thirteen weeks. Not in school at all last week, 3. -Thomas Muilins, 15, Picton Terrace (now of Alcock's Court), James has attended 34 times in a quarter. 4.—Patrick Brannan, hbourer, Owen's Conrt, Beast Market, Margaret and Mary. This case will be fresh in the memory of those members who attended the last School Board meeting. I have the honor to be, gentlemen, your obedient servant, Nov. ]8th, 1879. J. LINDC-P.
WREXHAM DEANERY CHURCH ASSOCIATION. The following is the report of the Executive Committee of the association, read at the annual meeting, on Friday week, a report of which appeared in our last issue In accordance with th" usual practice the Executive Com mittee have now to describe the proceedings of the association during the past year. The annual meeting in 1878 was held on the 22nd of October, when 21) members of the chapter were elected, and a resolution was passed enabling the chapter to fill up the remaining vacancies. The committee recommend that the same course should be adopted on this occasion, and they are extremely anxious that the ranks of the association should comprise a larger number of lay Churchmen in the deanery. The Choral Union Committee and the Sunday School Teachers' Union Committee were re-appointed at the annual meeting. The former of these committees has not succeeded in effecting the objects which were intended to be accom- plished by it; and a variety of reasons has led to the abandon- ment of a choral festival. Sincere regret must be entertained that the efforts made by the association have been so imperfectly appreciated. As a means, an incentive, to devotiot), music is an important element in the services of the Church and there is no parish choir which might not derive some practical advantage from joining at times with others in t e reverent perfcrmance of a common act of p-aise and worship. There havo been three meetings of the chapter during- the present year. The first of these was held on the 22nd of January, when the treasurer announced the result of the collections made for the Diocesan Societies. The total amount remitted from the Wrexham Deanery was £385 15s. 9d.; but as nearly half of that sum was contributed by a single person, this large and very wealthy district can scarcely be congratulated on the evidence it has given of its liberality. The importance of these societies, the wants of all ot them, and the necessity of more than one, may be learnt from their reports which have been sent to the subsciibers. And it i3 mo.-t desirable that the clergy should do all in their power, before the conclusion of the present year, to make their parishioner-i more acquainted with the existence of claims for assis'ance, which are at once so urgent and so fully warranted. At the same meeting the proposals of The Xew Clergy Co-operative Society" were discussed. The clergy of the deanery had been actively canvassed by the promoters of this society, which has recently thought proper to change its name and to extend its operations to a wider circle than it contemplated originally. The second meeting of the Chapter was held on the 22ud of April. The subject of Parish Mortuariei 11 was discussed, and a resolution was unanimously agreed upon that the in- cumbents in the Rural Deanery should be requested to bring the provisions of the various Acts of Parliament which relates to Parish Mortuaries before the vestries of their respective parishes. At the last meeting of the chapter, which took place on the 30th of July, there was an interesting discusion on" Tlte Extension of the Episcopate," and a resolution, expressing the satisfaction of the members with the measures which have been taken, and which are still in progress, to effect this desirable object, was unanimously adopted. I A special general meeting was held on the day last men- tioned, immediately after the chapter meeting, when several alterations in the rules which had been approved of by the chapter were finally confirmed. .The effect of these changes is considerable, and the Execu- tive Committee are in hopes that they will prove to be advantageous to the Association. It is under one of these changes that the Members have as- sembled here to-day; the Annual Meeting being now ap- pointed fer October or November, instead of as formerly for October only. The Chapter Meetings will for the future be two instead of four. And there is a new provision for the discussion of important subjects at the Annual Meeting if thought desirable b7 the Executive Committee. Acting upon this provision, the Executive Committee have invited the Dean of Bangor to explain the proposal for higher Education in Wales which he has powerfully advocated Blsewhere, The right employment of the reveuues of Jesus College is a matter of extreme importance, and should be deeply interesting to the Members of such au Association as our own. In compliance with wishes whioh have been expressed, the bmsiness of this Meeting hns been preceded by a service in the Church, and the thanks of the Member* are due to the Yicar of Wrexham for his kindness in allowing this service to be held. A solemn recognition of the gravity of work which is attempted is likely, under God's blessing, to lead to the due performance of it. This Association has now lasted for ten years, and though it may not have accomplished so much as its earliest promoters hoped for, their wisdom in establishing it has been fully justified. Everyone, by joining with ihosa around him may contribute tothe prosperity of his own community more usefully than if he acts alone; and the co-operation of the Laity and the Clergy in every district of the country is unquestionably essential for the permanent welfare of the Church.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY AND HIGHER EDUCATION IN WALES. Ths U niversity Com mis don resumed i's tilings em Tuesday at the Clarendon Hotel, College, a Welsh foundation, coming under t-h-iir no: ic;. Tue commissioners presc-ni, w.-ie Lord Selborne (in the chair), the Right Hon. Montagu Bernard, Professor Henry Smith, RIv. Osborne Gordon, and the President of St. John's College. The Revs. Mr. Daelin and Bayne, secretaries of the commission, were also in attendance. A depu- tation of gentlemen r^preseatia^ the views or the Principality oi Wales, as represented by com- mitters appointed by public meetings in North and Sjuth Wales in reference to the proposed new statutes and the new scheme of arrangement at Jesus College, consisting- of Mr. Hussey V;viau, M.P., Mr. Osborne Morgan, M.P., Mr. Henry Richard, M.P., Sir Robert Cuaiiffe, the Dean of Bangor, the Rev. John Griffith, Rector of Merchyr Tvdvil the R'-v. J. Davies, Mr. C. H. James Merthyr; and Mr. Thomas Gee, waited upon the comn;i68:oners. The subject was introduced by Mr. Vivian, who brought forward a motion in the House of Com- mons on the 1st July last on the question of higher education in Wales. He entered very fully into the views expressed at public meetings held in Wales. Mr. Osborne Morgan and the Dean of Bangor also spoke at considerable length, and Mr. Richard and Mr. Gee likewise addressed the cotnmr-sioueis. The deputation was yery courteously received, and the commissioners asked several questions which evidently showed they appreciated the re- marks which had been made. The conference lasted nearly two hours, and the entire proceedings were strictly private, but the commissioners promised to give their fullest consideration to the matters that had been laid before them. Lord irenrhyn, Lord Richard Grosvenor, and the Hen. George JSenyon wonid have been present if longer notice had been given them. Mr. Kcnyor. had only one day's notice given hi JO of the meeting, and having prior engagements which he could not put, off, it was impossible for him to be presenr. He. however, wrote a letter to the Dean of Bangor, expressing his warm sympathy with the movement defending Welsh interests. He considers Dr. Harper's scheme most unjust, and trusts that the Commissioners may be induced to reconsider the matter, so important to the future of Welsh educa- tion. One of the Dean of Bangor's suggestions i-; that exhibitions should be formed tenaoie at other We may add that Mr. Kenyon considers it to be one most worthy of attention, and that there ought to be no insuperable difficulty in carrying it out.
At the meeting of the Wrexham Deanery Church Association, on Friday afternoon, the subject was discussed, the Dean of BANGOR intrcducing it. After a few words on the history of Jesus College with a view to showing that it was a Welsh college, he proceeded to answer the argument that all the endowments of Oxford except Jesus College had been thrown open. He said such was not quite true, and that it could be shown that at the present = £ 16,000 from the different colleges was not thrown open. Therefore, he thought this argument snould not, be pressed. Bub he contended that there were special reasons why the endowments of Jesus College should not b3 alienated, and he classed these under the three following heads- First, that Wales has a distinct language 2, that Wales has a distinct religious character, in. asmuch as Nonconformity prevailed over the whole extent of Wales to a degree which does not prevail in any other district of similar extent in other parts of the kingdom and 3rd, that Wales labours under the disadvantage of having only cue-third of the endowments for the promotion of higher education which exist in an average English "dis- trict with the same population. He then spoke on each head. In regard to the first, he mentioned the great extent to which the Welsh youths spoke Welsh in their homes; and he thought the statis- tics given by Mr. Hussey Vivian in the House of Commons in July were reliable and he st tted that out of 686,000 Nonconformists above ten years of age who worshipped in Wales, 650,000 habitually worshipped in the Welsh language. There were also a number of Welsh Churchmen who worshipped in the same language. He then proceeded to show that a youth who went in for classical scholarship must first ef all be enabled to express himself elegantly in English, and he had been told on the best possible authority that, invaiiably, Welsh students were found deficient in this respect. In regard to the second point, he argued that Sir L. Jenkins, who left a large sum as endowment to the college, intended the sum to be appropriated to the uze of all Welshmen, and he mentioned this to explain his views with regard fo the depressed state of Jesus College. Having first Stated that he thought this depression was ex- aggerated, and quoted figures to show such, he expressed hi ■ opinion that the depression was owing to the fact that many Nonconformists did not know that the advantages of Jesus College were open to their sons. He also quoted a state- ment made to him but a shors time ago in support of this. The next point was whether Wales was suffering from that educational destitution which he had stated. One thintr in support of this were statistics i\'en in ♦pamphlet by Rev. G J. Davies, fellow of "Emanuel College, Oxford, which showed that endowments existing tor the development of Welsh Grammar Schools, and also in the form of exhibitions to enable youths to go to the universities, were exactly one- ) third in Wales of the sum which existed in other districts of equal populations in England, in other words the average English boy of talenb in those classes of society that required help to obtain higher education nltd < £ 3 to enable him to advance in life for' every £1 that the Welsh boy had. The significance of all this was that whilst Welsh youths have the d'sadvantage of poverty to contend with, they could not be expected tc, b, as v/ell pre- pared as English youths, who have been trained itt a more efficient manner. Moreover Welsh Giammar Schools have been in a very weak and languid state for many generations, and suffered from' want of endowments. He therefore contended that these thiee special difficulties in Wales created for it a distinct position, and that they could not deal with Wales as they could with au ordinary English district. The proposal of Dr. Harper had been justified by one noble speaker, who said that Devonshire and Yorkshire had thrown open their endowments, but his reply was that Devonshire and Yorkshire were on equal terms with any other Eng- lish county, and the youths of those coun, ies were not weighted against others with peculiar disad- vantages. He feared, however, that the alineation of the funds proposed by Dr. Harper would be carried out, as the scheme of the doctor was sup- ported by some in London who were thought to re- present Wa'es. He was in favour of a number of English youths being introduced into Jesus College, in fact he would go turther, and, if it were possible, abolish Jesus College altogether, and devote its revenue to the creation of exhibitions and scholar- ships, tenable at any college, which plan, he be- lieved, would be advantageous to the Welsh people. But if such could not be done he was heartily in favour of the introduction of English youths, and he did not think that ten was at all an excessive number, but what he contended was that the £ 800 to be devoted to the purpose should be taken from a source different to that proposed, and that the Y,1,600 a year, which is now devoted to the edu- cation of poor Welsh scholars, should t. left untouched. (Hear, hear.) Tne Dean then spoke of the large amount of money absorbed by the Principal and fellows, and intimated that bemuse the teaching in the college had not been so ener- getic and efficient; us it should have been the Welsh students ought not to hear the blame. He next spoke of the Meyrick Trust Fund and said he was greatly in favour of its being applied to the preparation of Welsh boys for the universities, so that they may be better qualified to contest for honours. In conclusion, he spoke or the circumstances in connection with the advow- sons belonging to Jeaus College, and argued in favour of their being sold, remarking that the clerical students of the Vol were exceedinodv j small, and often these livings had to be given to those for whom they were no;; originally jnteuded. Archdeacon Smart, Mr. Trevor Parkins, Mr. Clayton, and others took part in the discussion which followed.
FOOD ADULTERATION.—Dr. Tripe, public analyst of the Hackney district, reports, that all the samples of cocoa he examined, except one, were sold as mixtures of cocoa, arrowroot and sugar, the exception being Cad- bury's Cocoa Essence, which was genuine. The quantity of starch in the other samples varied between G7 and 80 per cent., so that allowing for sugar, there was not in some of them more than 10 per cent. of cocoa. An article like this was comparatively valueless as a food." THROAT AFFECTIONS AND HOARSENESS.—All suf- fering from irritation of the throat and hoarseness will be agreeably surprised at the almost immediate relief afforded by the use of Brown's Bronchial Troches," These famous "lozenges are now sold by most respect- able chemists in this country at Is. l|d. per box. People troubled with a hacking cough," a slight cold." or bronchial affections1 cannot try them too soon, as similar troubles, if allowed to progress, result in serious Pulmonary and Asthmatic affections.

Walpolc, in- spectors of fisherieg, have recently reported on the bve-iaws made by the Conservators of the Dee Fishery district altering the close time for salmon in that district. The bye-laws provided that the close season for all modes of salmon fishing (ex- cept with rod and line) shall commence on the Ififch September, and terminate on the 2nd March. For rod and line, the close season snail commence on 1st December, a.nd terminate on the 31st March- The following is a summary of the report of the inspectors:— The River Dee is one of the most important salmon rivers of the country. It is universally admitted that the fisheries of the river have prospered under the Salmon Fishery Acts; and in consequence of the preservation which these Acts have obtained for it. The nets have increased in number in consequence of the increased number of fish. The rods have enjoyed better sport, and the smolts seen in the river have become much more numerous. The increase is the more satisfactory because the Dee, like many other rivers, suffer from pollution, and these pollutions, except for the counter effect of preservation, could hardly have had any other than an injurious effect on the fisheries. Up to 1861, when the first of the existing Salmon Fisheries Acts was passed, the magistrates in quarter sessions made the close season commence on the 1st of September, and terminate on the 25th of January. The fishermen do not seem to have readily accepted this close season, and have continually urged the con- servators to make application for the variation of the close season, and the desire for this alteration is shared both by the draft-net and trammel-net fishermen below Chester, and the coracle fishermen between Chester and Holt. Above Holt, on the contrary, the coracle-net fishermen are of a different opinion. The net fishermen thus are divided as to the propriety of the bye-law. The vast majority of them living below Holt are in favour of it; a small minority living above Holt are opposed to it. The water above Holt, where the minority reside, has lately been fished by an associ- ation of gentlemen known as the Mid Dee Club. And the majority of the members of this club, like the net fishermen on the lower portion of the river, are in favour of an alteration of the close season. They wish the angling season to be extended to the end of November and are willing, for this ex- tension, to give up the months of February and March, and they are consequently prepared, for the sake of securing this change, to concede to the net fishermen an extension similar in principle to that which they re- quire for themselves. The view which is thus expressed by the members of this club is not, however, shared by the anglers of the Dee generally. Some of the proprietors, indeed, say that the season is too long already, and that it ought to close at the beginning or middle of October. There is, then, no clear consensus of opinion on the Dee respecting the merits of the application for an al- teration in the close season. The Conservators them- selves seem also divided upon it. The proprietors of the Dee, the net fishers, and the anglers are, then, all divided on the policy of the pro- posed bye-laws and the Conservators themselves com- posed of all these classes, share the same differences of opinion. We are then driven to general principles for a solution of the problem which has been referred to us. The interests of the rivers generally are concerned in sanctioning as few departures as possible from the close season fixed by the Legislature, since any devia- tion from uniformity increases the difficulties of preservation. On the Dee, indeed, this view has less force than on other rivers, being partly Welsh and partly English. The Welsh rivers have for the most part received an additional fortnight's fishing season, whilst the English have almost universally been refused it. The Dee then is geographically connected with those riveis which have been allowed a later close season than others, and there could, therefore, be less objection to an alteration in its close season than to an alteration in the close season of other English rivers. We are bound also to admit that in one other respect the Dee is entitled to consideration. We purposely deferred our inquiry to the last week of the fishing season, in order that we might have the opportunity of seeing the condition of the fish in the Dee at the end of August. We have no hesitation in saying that the fish were less advanced in spawn than we had expected. We have no hesitation in saying that fish was in ex- cellent order. On the other hand, even the fishermen who advocated the change allowed that the fish are more backward this year than usual, and it seems, there- fore, a fair presumption that if our inquiry had taken place in a hotter year we should have found the spawn of the fish much more developed. We have now only to sum up our general conclusion on the matter. On the one side, then, we are prepared to admit that the condition of the fish in the Dee would justify the extension of the net season into September, and the extension of the rod season into November; that such extension would be popular among a majority of the net fishermen, and a minority of the anglers and that it would not be very injurious to the interests of other rivers. On the other hand, we feel bound to observe that there is only a small majority of the Board in favour of the change; that the Magistrates in Quarter Sessions before 1861 refused to adopt it; and that there is no doubt that it is most distasteful to the vast majority of the upper proprietors of the river. Under these circumstances it remains for us to deter- mine what the Home Office should do. It seems to- us that opinion on the river is not clear enough to justify it in doing anything. In other words, that the argue- ments for change are not strong enough to justify the Home Office in overruling the objections to change on the part of the upper proprietors. The upper proprietor on any river are a class deserving exceptional considera- tion. They hold the grounds on which the fish mainly spawn, and their good-will is essential for the prosperity of the river, we very mucn aouos wnecner, unaer any circumstances, it can be to the interest of the Conserva- tors to insist on a change which is disliked by the upper proprietors. We feel sure that it cannot be to their interest to do so when the objections of the upper pro- prietors are shared as they are on the Dee by other parties. We have, then, arrived at the conclusion that it is not desirable that the bye-laws which have been re- ferred to us by Mr. Secretary Cross should be approved, and accordingly recommend that they should be dis- allowed. We have arrived at these recommendations on general grounds after inquiry, and these grounds seem to us to necessitate the disallowance of the bye- laws.

DENBIGH. CONSERVATIVE MEETING.—A meeting of the members and friends of the Denbigh Constitutional Association is arranged to be held in the club-room at the Iving's Arms, Vale-street, on Thursday next, at 7.30, when addresses in English and Welsh will be delivered by the Hon. G. T. Kenyon, the Conservative candidate for the horough; Captain P. P. Pennant, and other gentlemen. Dr. A. E. Tumour, J.P., will preside, and the com- mittee invite the attendance of ail friends of the Con- servative cause. SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING. THURSDAY.—Present: The Mayor (Councillor E. T. Jones), in the chair; Councillors W. Morris, John Armor, J"hn Davies, James Caithness, Evan Thomas, Robert Ellis, Robert Parry, R. H. Roberts, J. S. Jones, and W. H. Foulkes Aldermen Evan Pierce, Thomas Gee, T. J. Williams, and E. W. Gee. The TOWN CLERK read the award, which had cost Ge1., and wirch stated that the price fixed upon for the Glas Meadows, 10a. 2r. 35p., was £:2,207 10s. In the course ofthe conversation, it was said that the price at which the land was offered them, in the first instance, was £ 2,300. Adding the cost of the award and the fees of Messrs. Lloyd Williams and Clough to the price fixed upon in the award the Counpil saved about £:5 on the original price. The TOWN CLERK read the terms upon which the £7,950 could be borrowed for the Smithfield and the widening of Red Lane, and after a very lobg discussion the following motion was carried, on the proposition of the EX-MAYOR, seconded by Mr. MORRIS "That as the Council is not obliged to complete the purchase of Gias Meadows for twelve months from the date of the valuation, and as the widening of Red Lane cannot be proceeded with until the sewerage works are carried through that part of the town, that the question of borrowing the money for both purposes be deferred for the present." The reports of the committees were read, one of them stating that Mr. R. \Vihianis, solicitor, had given a piece of land at the corner turning to Eglwy* Wen, and that the committee had ordered a wall to be built there, to cost about £15. Mr. MORRIS raised objection to these things being done in committee, as only one portion of the Council knew the reason for the things carried out. A long discussion about the advisability of having the Council divided into committees took place, during which the arguments so many times brought forward were ngain put before the meeting. As regards the wall named, Mr. Morris was informed that it was ordered at the last meeting of the Council, and Mr. R. H. ROBERTS said, if Mr. Morris would not listen to reports brought before the Council they were not to have their time wasted by giving him explana- tions. Mr. MORRIS said he was not present, and did not hear the Surveyor report upon the question. The reports were confirmed. A very long discussion arose as to the cost of the present length of the drainage, and whether the present pipe drain would be cheaper than the former brick one (which the ex-Mayor said would be the co.se), during which it was stated that £ 3,100 had already been spent on the drainage, but that seemed to include the £449 15s. for the High-street drainage, which it had been resolved should be defrayed out of the loan. However, to settle the question, it was resolved that a detailed account of all the money expended both on the works and litigation, &c., should be presented when number 1 contract was completed. Mr. E. W. GEE presented to the Council a letter sent by Dr. Hughes, Denbigh, to the St. Asaph Union, as their medical officer, announcing that a case of typhoid fever had been registered in his medical journal that day, and, added the Medical Officer, "Perhaps I need hardly remind you of the enormous cost in which the Board was involved some years ago through the mani- fest indifference of the Corporation of Denbigh at the commencement of a similar fever in the very place which you find specified to-day." The letter went on to say that the communication was made to the Board believing it to be the proper channel of communication with the Council. The necessary action was taken, and after other busi- ness had been disposed of, the meeting closed.
CEFN AND RHOSMEDRE. EVANGELICAL SERVICES.—A series of special evangeli- cal services have been held in the various places of worship in the districts of Cefn Mawr, Rhosymedre, and Cefn Bychan during the past fortnight. MISSIONARY MEETING.—On Wednesday evening the annual missionary meeting was held in the Wesleyan Chapel, Acrefair. The chair was occupied by Mr. Jos. Darlington.

OSWESTRY. ARISTOCRATIC DIVORCE SUIT. — In the Divorce Division, on Thursday, Sir R. J. Phillimore had before him the suit of Cotton v. Cotton. Mr. Inderwick, Q.C., and Dr. Tristram appeared for the petitioner. In this case the petitioner prayed for a dissolution of her marriage with the Hon. Robert Wellington Stapleton Cotton on the grounds of adultery and desertion. The parties were married at St. Mary's Church, Bryanston- square, on the 2nd of June, 18GG, and lived together at various places and near Oswestry until the 22nd of April, 1876, when the respondent eloped with a Mrs. Poole. Mr. Poole had since obtained a decree nisi for the dissolution of his marriage on the ground of his wife's adultery with the respondent in this suit.— Decree nisi, with costs. DOG AND POULTRT SHOW.—The annual show of dogs and poultry in connection with the Oswestry District Agricultural Society was opened on Thursday, in the Powis Hall, Oswestry. The show had been hitherto held on the same day as the agricultural show, but this year it was decided to have it on a separate day, and the result has justified the experiment. The number of entries and the quality of the exhibits, was decidedly in advance of any previous shows. The game classes were nearly all well filled with excellent birds, many of them in an extremely hardy condition. A large number of the birds had. however, been injured in the feet. Amongst the winners of first prizes in these classes were Mr. John Parker, of Whitchurch; and Mr. J. Brassington, of Newport, Salop. For dorkings, which was an extraordinarily good class, the Hist prize was taken by Mr. E. Shaw, of Oswestry. Amongst the principal prize winners in the other classes were Mr. Philip Lee, Wem, Salop; Mr. E. B. Wood, Chirk Messrs. J. and W. Birch. Sefton, Liverpool Mr. T. Edwards, jun., Chirk Mr. J. B. Stokes, Llanfechain; and Mr. J. Todd, jun., Chirk. In the dog show about 280 dogs were entered. including a large number of the champion stud dogs of England. Mr. M. B. Wynn, of Scalford, Melton Mow- bray, Leicestershire, was^ judge of the mastiffs, and the Rev. G. H. Hodson, of North Petherton, Bridgewater, of the other dogs. Special extra prizes of jE5 for the best mastiff dog and bitch offered by the Mastiff Club (confined to members), was won by Mr. James Morris, of Union-place, Oswestry, and Dr. Woods, of South- port. In the puppy classes, special prizes of £.1, pre- sented by the Mastiff Club, were won by Mr J. A. Bindley, of Burton-on-Trent, and Mr. James Morris, of Oswestry. A special prize of £2 2s., given by Messrs. Cooper and Smith, of Aston, near Birmingham, for the cleanest and best-conditioned mastiff that had been washed with their dog soap was won by Mr. James Morris, Oswestry. Amongst the winners of first prizes in other classes were Mr. James Freme, Flint; Mr. A. P. Beck, Welshpool; Mr. R. J. L. Price, Rhiwlas, Bala; Mr. T. E. Issard, Newton; Messrs. C. and J. G. Ganon, Boughton, Chester; and Lieutenant-Colonel Leyland, Ruthin.
RUABON. THE FAIR.—The annual winter fair was held here on Thursday. Cattle and pigs were well represented, and fetched good prices. There was also a large quantity of butchers' meat, ranging from 5d. to 9d. per pound. Onions went off well. There was a large number of people stirring. ENTERTAINMENT.—The Working Men's Association entertainment was held in the Wvnnstay Arms As- sembly Rooms on Tuesday evening, under the presi- dency of Mr. A. J. Barrat, Havodybwch.

ST. ASAPH. BOARD OF GUARDIANS. THURSDAY.—Present: Mr. Brownlow W. Wynne, chairman, and a good attendance of Guardians. THE HOUSE Was stated to contain 123 inmates against 140 last year. Vagrants 111, against 87. The Commissioners in Lunacy reported 18 imbecile inmates, but thought that two could be placed in another class. The rooms were clean and in good order, but the lavatories were ill- placed and unsatisfactory. The Visiting Committee bock was found well kept up and signed. PERSONAL EXPLANATIONS. The CHAIRMAN entered into a personal explanation in reference to a statement made by Mr. Yorke to the effect that Mr. Gee had told him that the suggestion he made that a proposal should be sent to the Local Government Board asking them to allow the new assess- ment of the parishes to be deferred till the whole assess- ment was complete, had been lost by his (the chair- man's) casting vote. He begged now to say that the question never was put to the vote, and that he certainly never gave his casting vote against it. He went on to read correspondence he had had with Ir. Gee on the subject, and complained that Mr. Gee had kept him for several days without a reply to his letter then wrote on a post card, stating that he would write fully again, but he had never heard from him till he (the chairman) wrote him giving him notice that he should bring the matter before the Board then Mr. Gee had written to "iiii, i.nn, but, sent tne letter unsealed. The Chairman then handed tne letter back to Mr. Gee, to seal or do as he taought proper with. Mr. E. \V. GEE explained that lie had writ""¡m t) the Chairman, explaimn: that what he told Mr. Yo«:i*e amounted to the statement that thera were tV^e men for sending up to the L Ie Û Govern uc-nt Boardand four w the -tt the latter r f'/} tlr?y w»«Wbe ridiculous if they sent uo to the jjocal Government Board. na'med ^HAIliJIAN sa^ k»d never received the letter Mr GEE said that he; posted it with his own hands, and, having done so, could not understand the Chair- man's last letter, as he had intimated to him in the letter written that day, and which Mr. Gee now read It all seemed to have originated through the loss of Sopped P°Sted' and the matter ASSESSMENTS. Mr. YORKE, in a long speech, objected to the new assessment being placed on Llansannan and not on the other parishes and entered into some persona1 explana- tion, but no motion was ma :e, and the CHAIRMAN in a few words, objected to these criticisms of the com- mittee, who were doing their utmost to manage the business thoroughly, and expressed the opinion that Mr. Yorke ought really to come to that Board as a learner and not assume-" I am Sir Oracle. When I open mv mouth let no .dog bark." (Laughter, and hear). He objected to these criticisms, which produced nothing. bome of which seemed actuated by spleen, and others AS waa getting heartily sick of it. Af.er the Rev. W. PUGH had stated that some irrita- was leit in Llansannan at being the first ratepayers re-assessed, the subject dropped.
