I CONWAY. THE MARRIAGE OF MR. VERNON DARBISHIRE.—In our report of the marriage rejoicings which took place in Conway last week, we inadvertently omitted the name of W. Owen, Esq., Bank, in the list of the gentlemen who composed the Committee of Management. Mr. Owen, in fact, was the Secretary, and Mr. Hughes, sur- geon, acted as the Treasurer, and both gentlemen took a very active interest in the aflair from the first to the last. SERVE Hllf RIGHT."—Our correspondent writes— It is strange, but I believe that, as a rule, there is not a more cruel animal in creation than is man, and in many instances he is wantonly and viciously cruel, like a tiger. Men torture and abuse dogs, asses, and even horses, for the mere fun of the thing, and because their nature is brutal and cruel. One of these imps of cruelty caught a tartar the other day in Conway, to his great discom- fiture and humiliation. Three or four young gentle- men" were returning from a boating excursion on the river, and when they had passed the Custom House, on their way to Rose-bill-street, they saw a dog quietly standing in the passage. On seeing the dog, one of these young gents went up to the poor animal, and, without any cause or provocation, gave him a heavy kiok, just for the fun of the thing. An old woman, the owner of the dog, chanced to witness the cruel act, and, without more a-do, or saying a word, she went up to the offender and administered a tremendous thwack on the side of his head, which evidently very much astonished him. Smarting from the blow, and cowed in spirit, his gent- ship skulked away amidst the laughter aud merriment of his comnanionB, one of whom had the manliness to exctaim, "Werve you very right," and I say so too. A I good horsewhip, vigorously applied ill all such cases, would be an excellent preservative against cruelty to animals."
I LLANDUDNO. I I SOCIETY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE I GOSPEL IN FOREIGN PARTS. On Monday last, the Llandudno Auxiliary branch of the above Society held its annual meeting in the spacious and commodious building which was erected 'by the Committee of the National Eisteddfod—Mr. Pritchard, the contractor, kindly grautiug the use of it, gratis. The attendance, we are happy to say, was both large and re- spectable, as it was known thatthe Bishops of Bangor and Oxford would address the meeting, as also another dis- tinguished gentleman the Rev. Daniel Moore, of Lon- don. The Chair was taken by the Bishop of Bangor, who commenced the proceedings by calling upon the Rev. J. Morgan, rector of Llandudno to say prayers, which he did in a very impressive manner. The CHAIRMAN then addressed the meeting to the following effect :-He should, he said, confine his open- ing observations within a narrow compass, as others would have to address them, and to whom they would have great pleasure in listening. They were met to- gether to assist in raising funds to carry the Gospel to Foreign parts, and they would agree with him, he felt sure, that it was their duty as Christians, to take a warm interest in that great cause which it was the object of the Society to promote, and to send the word of God to Foreign lands. In all places were there were ais earnest minister and a faithful people, there was sure to be a sincere desire to spreadthe gospel of Christ not only at home but likewise abroad. He then proceeded to notice and rebut some objections which, by some parties, were made against the objects of the Society. In the year 1813, when that great and good man (Mr. Wilberforce), whose gifted son was present amongst them that day, proposed in his place in Parliament, to send Missionaries to India, he was inetwittiol)etiol)puiition- an opposition which he was happy to say w;?,, not now possible. (• heers.) AU who were acquainted with India agreed as to the amount of good which had been done in that country by means of the Bible and the Christ- ian Missionaries. There were some who denied that any great result had been etfecte(I but good men like Sir Herbert Edwardes, and the present Governor General of India, Sir John Laurence, and who knew Ulat COli IJ try better than most men, bad expressed their earnest opinion that it was most desirablo that the Bible should be more widely spread, and the objects of the society be more widely carried out amongst the native populations. A fain, it was a known fact thatanimportantchang-i had come over the minds of the natives of India in that re- spect, and many of their learned men were dissatisfied with their religion, aud were disposed to study the Scriptures. The two objections which were generally enployed against missionary efforts and the distribution of the Bible amongst the heathen had not yet altogether died away. It said --diow us proofs of the good you have accomplished by missionary effort. ? There could be no doubt but what a great deal of good had been effected in India, as elsewhere, and he must be blind indeed who refuses to recognise the effects produced by the teaching of the missionaries and the distribution of the word of God. It was likewise urge I that tho mis- sionaries of the presentday werenotsoself-deiiying and so zealous as they were in former times and in the middle ages. Now this he earnestly denied. Lmk at Allen Gardiner who went amongst the Savages in Patagonia, and was there starved to death whilst preaching the word of Life in that country. Then again, there had betn Bishop after Bishop who had braved the deadly climate of Africa, and died there in their endeavours to convert the heathen. There was that great and good man Bishop McKenzie, who was prepared to sacrifice his life in order that he might preach the gospel to the heathen. It was not true then, that christians were not willing as heretofore, to risk their lives and to resign social comfort oil behalf of the heathen, and to convert them to Christianity. There were persons who did not care for the extension of God's word amongst the heathen, but were like the" children sitting in the market" referred to by our Saviour, and who cared for none of these things." He firmly believed, however, that such was not the case with those who had assembled together on that occasion on the contrary, he believed that they did desire the conversion of the heathen, and that the Bible should be sent to Foreign Lands. It was their duty then, to assist in carrying out that object, and to do their best to obtain for others those advantages which they themselves already and so largely possessed. (Loud cheering.) The Chairman then called upon the Rev. Daniel Moore (of London), to move the first re- solution which was to the effect, that that meeting ap- proved of the efforts of the Society to send the Gospel to heathen lands, and were willing to support it in its endeavours to do so. Mr. MOORE commenced by remarking that he did not know by whom he had been appointed to move the first resolution in a meeting of that kind. The responsibility did not rest upon him, and the company themselves would have to say what amount of judgement they had exercised in confiding the task to him. The Society the claims of which they were then advocating, had claims upon all Christians for their sympathy and their support. That society had been actively engaged in the propagation of the gospel in foreign parts wheu the rest of Christendom was asleep. It had two distinct fields for its labours, namely, our colonies, and the lands peo- pled by the heathen. Their first duty was felt to be to assist those who had emigrated from our own shores, and this was to follow the example of the Apostles, who were told "to go and preach the gospel to all the world, beginning at'Jerusalem," and they were acting upon that Apostolic principle. Many of the emigrants had, when at home, been in the habit of attending places of wor- ship, and of enjoying the consolations of religion; but when they went into a distant land, many were without a church and without a sacrament, iuid many, he was afraid, from this cause settled down into apathy respecting religion, and became practical heathens. It was clearly, therefore, their first duty to do all in their power to send the gospel to all parts of our exten- ded colonies. In his opinion, he said, our colonies occupied an important place in the plan of divine Providence, as they gave to us an opportunity foi the planting of God's word in all quarters of the globe. It was a grand, though a momentous, fact that the Queen of England ruled over one-fifth of the whole world, so that in reality we are constituted by Divine Providence the apostle of the nations. It has been said that the sun never sets upon the British empire nor neither upon our neglect and shame. In India alone we rule over 180 millions of people who have never been converted to Christianity. It may be that we have a great name upon the earth, but if we neglect our duties and shirk our responsibilities the God of nations will most assured- ly call us to account. It is someiimes the case that the public journals twit us with having produced no result, and that out of a por nlation of 180 millions we can only point to 60 or 70 thousands as having been converted to Christianity, even nominally. China remains still uninstructed, and that Japan is more hopeless now than ever, and that it is useless to go on wasting life and treasure for a useless object. It will be seen that this argument, if based upon facts, is of a suicidal tendency for if so little have as yet been done it is clear that more should be done. No one will deny but that Christianis- ing the world is a remedy for the world's misery. It is a fearful thing to reflect upon that there are on the earth at the present time some 750 millions of human beings who know not the one true God, and are still uncon- verted. This is because men 'professing to be christians are selfish and are faithless to the great trust reposed in them, and because they will not take the means to make the gospel known to the uttermost ends of the earth. (Loud cheers). Happiness is within our own reach; and we talk glibly about the heathen being happy How can a man be happy without a knowledge of God ? but apart from this, look at the physical misery, the moral degradation, to which the heathen is subjected. Happy in his delusion, is he Happy, when he is called upon to sacrifice the first born of his own body for the good of his own soul! The Society is called upon to enlarge the field of its operations, and there are many extra calls, but how can its sphere of labour be enlarged unless the funds at its disposal be augmented? New fields are constantly being opened by christian enterprise, com- merce and mechanical appliances. At no period of the world were minds so unsettled in matters of religious belief as they are at present. The sects are tired of their dogmas. The disciples of Confusius are dissatisfied with the cold morality of their national philosopher and teacher; and the pagans with their multitudinal gods which any of them can make themselves. The Brahmins themselves are unsettled, but it does not follow that be- cause they doubt the truth of their own faith that they will embrace Christianity. Even in our own couutry lien's minds are attempted to be unsettled by the teach- ings of even christian ministers who try to make men believe that the Holy Bible, the word of God, is nothing more than a legendary myth. Well, suppose they could succeed in proving this, suppose these men could shew that the Bible is not to be depended upon, what have they got to offer us in its stead—what will they give us ? (Loud cheering and cries of nothing," nothing ") The heathen are sighing for a religion; the mind of man requires something to look up to—something to rely upon. They are waiting for Christianity, and it is our duty to send it to them. The speaker in conclusion said that this Society was not intended to rival any other but co-operate with all, and he trusted that it would secure the support of men of all sects who wished the world to be christianized. Every year human beings were dying equal in number to the whole population of England, Scotland and Wales; and in China it had been computed that 30,000 persons died every day. Many labourers in the Christian field were wanted, and it was for the meeting to assist in making that part of the Lord's Prayer a practical matter which says Thy kingdom come." The Rev. gentleman resumed his seat amid prolonged applause. The BISHOP of Oxford, on rising to second the resolu- tion, was very warmly received by the audience. He began by alluding to the objection which had been made in certain quarters to their sending missionaries to hea- then countries in order to convert them to Christianity. These objections had been ably answered; but he be- lieved that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred they were made as an excuse by persons who did not intend to support missions, and who made the objections a cloak to throw over and to hide their own niggardliness (Hear, hear.) He wished to know whether Churchmen were in the habit of considering that their duties in anything were to be measured by the success which attended them. Supposing that a parent had a dull child, and which was most difficult to teach, would that dullness and difficulty be deemed a good reason why the child should be neglected and not taught at all ? or rather would it not be an incentive to extra exertion and perse- verance ? As Christians, it was their plain duty to do all in their power to bring the heathen to a knowledge of Christ, for he himself had commanded that it should be done. He remembered a circumstance which took place in connection with the great Duke of Wellington. A gentleman, in his presence, was arguing against send- ing missionaries into heathen lands, and at last he turned to the Duke and asked him what his opinion on the subject was ? The Duke, with that calm shrewd look, for which he was remarkable, said—" Eh what is that ? What does the Commander-in-Chief say about it Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel unto every creature." Well, this is the order of the Comman- der-in-Chief, and we must obey it. (Loud applause.) The learned and eloquent speaker then proceeded to say that the question before them had two aspects, the first, who were to be converted, and the second, who were to convert. The church, whose duty it was to Christianize the world, should be a living church, and above all things it should hot be captious about trifles. The work which it undertook to do was not a trifling work; and it should be earnest, or a voice from heaven may he heard, saying "Thou has left thy first love, and I have something to say against thee." The church which deemed that its duty was not to go abroad, was not in a healthy state,—its pulse beat so languidly that it could not send the blood to the extremities of the system. This inaction was grounded upon selfishness, and spiritual selfishness was the most selfish of all. He could assure the meeting that the objections which had been rebutted by the previous speakers did not exist; for from every part of the world there were calls being made upon the society to send out more missionaries, and that the urgency for them was very great. There were six bishops in connection with India, and the work there had not stood still. The soutiiern parts of India now echo the name of Christ, and he could say that i I) other parts of that great country progress had been made in the conversion of the natives. There is a gradual casting away of the old superstitions, in that country, rather than au embracing of a new faith, and the ques- tion was, what faith were they to have ? The speaker then went oil to assert that it was the timidity of the English Government, which had prevented the mission- aries effecting more good than they had, because from the way the Government acted in carefully abstaining from doing anything to offend the religious prejudices of the natives, it led the latter to conclude that Govern- ment did not sincerely believe in Christianity. He strongly denounced this anti-Christian policy, which he said had been carried out to such a degree that in one case when an Indian embraced Christianity he was al- lowed to lose his post on that account alone in order to gratify his enemies. In fact, our policy was such that it tended to convince the people of the truth of what they did believe, rather than to prepare them to embrace Christianity. They had been taunted with the slow pro- gress made in the conversion of the people, and were asked what had they done ? Why Christiinity had been preached for 1800 years, and up to this time three- fourths of the world were not Christians; when the so- ciety for the propagation of the gospel had not been in existence for more than half a century, and its income was but a mere trifle. Were they, therefore, to give up the attempt to spread God's word amongst the heathen, when, instead of less, there had i >een more really done than they comparatively had any right to expect ? What we wanted was more selfdenial and a greater trust in God. He next referred to the exertions of several good men to spread the light of the gospel amongst the benighted heathen, some of whom were true types of the apostolic martyrs. These men struggled against difficulties, and were not cast down by them. What if St. Athanasius had said in his day that the heresy of the Arians had become triumphant, and that it was useless to oppose heresy any longer, what would have become of the doc- trine of the Trinity—of the three persons in one God- head ? Greatness was achieved aud truth upheld by fighting with difficulties, and not in succumbing to them (Hear, hear, and cheers.) The speaker then re- ferred to several letters which lie had received from several bishops, personal friends-one being from British Columbia—urgently soliciting assistance from the socie- ty. Many a young man, impelled by a thirst for gold, had gone to foreign lands, and whilst in health did not think of religion; but when disease overtook him and he was confined to a bed of sickness, a minister of the gospel would be welcomed by the miserable man as an angel. But what was the Society to do 1 The Finance Com- mittee had told them they would have to reduce their ex- penses instead of incurring additional ones. What the Society wanted was money and not men. They could not expect that great and wonderful prosperity would be continued unless we endeavour to make great the name of Christ by strengthening the arms of the Church to extend his kingdom, for if they wanted God's favour they must do something to merit it. He concluded a most eloquent address by strongly urging upon the meet- ing to support the Society, and sat down amidst loud and prolonged applause. Mr. G. FELTON moved, and Mr. W. F. CHAPMAN seconded, a vote of thanks to th Lord Bishop of Oxford and the Rev. D. Moore, for their attendance there on that occasion. Carried with acclamation". The Rev. DAVID WILLIAMS moved a vote of thanks to Mr. Morris Pritchard, for his kindness in allowing the use of the Pavillion gratuitously. The motion on being seconded by the Rev. D THOMAS, was carried with applause. A hearty vote of thanks was then given to the Lorel Bishop of Bangor, for his kindness in presiding—moved by Sir John CHETEWOOD, and seconded by W. HAMER, Esq. A collection was then made, which amounted to t44 13s. 8d.
ST. ASAPH. ROBBERY.—Mrs. Jane MoManus, of St. Asaph, was brought before the magistrates on Thursday last, charg- ed with having robbed James Cougderof,theimmof 17s. on Tuesday evening, at 11 o'clock. Prosecutor, it appears, was rather intoxicated, and fell down on the street opposite Mr. John Kelly's house, where the pri- soner met him, and in assisting to raise him up she is alleged to have placed her hand in his pocket, and stolen the above amount. The case was adjourned till Mon- day morning to hear further evidence. Mr. Edward Roberts defended the prisoner, who was admitted to bail. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The guardians present at the Board on Thursday were following:—Whitehall. Dod, Esq. (in the chair); Col. Rowley, M.P. Rev. T Z. Davies Rev. D. M. Evans; Messrs. E. Roberts, St Asaph; John Edwards, Abergele; William Parry' Denbigh; Robert Jones, Rhydorddwy Wen; and E' Powell Jones, Rhyl. When the meeting commenced only two guardians were in attendance. Only the routine business was transacted. Out-relief expended during the past fortnight by Mr. John Jones, St. Asaph, £ 127 lis. 10d.; Mr. Robert Roberts, Denbigh, X134 3s. j Mr. John Story, Abergele, £92 10s.; balance against the first, iCI3 5s. 5d. j second, J3 8s. third, t6 ge. 6d.; against the Treasurer, E119 5a. 6d.

EDUCATION IN WALES. To the Editor of the North Wales Chronicle. Sir,-I hope" One interested in Anglesey" will take up the challenge thrown out to him. He certainly ought not to throw out iuuendos without fully explain- iug hid views on the important subject he alludes to. The greater part of the country are not satisfied with the state of Ecclesiastical and Educational affairs in North Wales, and auy well weighed suggestions' would be wel- comed by the public from whatever quarter they come. We waut les3 talk, less of what the Americans call "Buncombe," in pur various metin;s, whether Eistedd. fodau or Synods, and we want a little more practical common sense.

CARNARVONSHIRE AND ANGLESEY I HORTICULTURAL'SOCIETY. The Annual Show of this useful Society took place on Thursday last, in the Penrhyn Hall, Bangor. Horticultural shows, like agricultural meetings, are of recent growth, and were almost unknown a quarter of a century ago. The object of the agricultural meetings is intended for the benefit of the farmer and the tillers of the ground generally whilst the object of Horticnl- ture is mainly to encourage and incite to good gardening amongst the labouring population. A man who loves flowers and cultivates his garden in a manner to gain a prize, is sure to be a steady man, and a good aud useful, member of societv whilst, as a rule, the very contrary may be predicated of the man who has no taste that way. Dr. Watts took this for grauted, when he described the lazy and dissipated man in his lines on the Sluggard :— I passed by his gardeu and saw the wild briar, The thorn and the thistle grow broardor and higher." We are glad to find that this matter has been taken up very warmly by the gentry in all parts of the country; so that there is scarcely a t >wu of any size or impor- tance in the kingdom, but what has its yearly Show of lfowers, fruits, and vegetables. In this district, the prin- cipal supporters of the Society are Col 1 euijaut and Sir Richard lhilkeley, who are also warm patrons of all agricultural improvement*. This does them great ho- nour, and is most ceditable to the high position they occupy, in the two neighbouring counties. The Show this year was held in the 1 enrhyn Hall, which in our opinion is a much too circumscribed area for the purpose, and it was pretty generally admitted to be so. Notwithstanding that there was a great fall- ing off in the flowers exhibited by the gentry of the neighbourhood, and which necessarily take up a good deal of room, the Hall was quite full in every part, so that had more been sent, there would have been no space for them. No doubt a more fitting place will he found for next year's exhibition. With the exception of the plants and flowers, the collections, in both divisions, fruit and vegetable, was of a very superior character, and oil the cotagers side, showed a very decided and marked improvement. Amongst the fruit, the grapes, melons, and wall fruit, could scarcely be surpassed; And amongst the vegeta- bles, the excellent quality and size of the potatoes were the theme and the admiration of everyone who visited the Hall. In fact, n.thing has been seen like it in Bangor, since the blight first in t,ie its appearance in 1846. We may add, that in point of general excellence the cottagers' productions were not a wit inferior to those of the amateurs aud the market gardeners, and particularly tl).e brought from the model village of Llaudegai, which has long been famous for its fruit aud vegetables. On the centre table, there was a splendi.l, though a comparative sin dl collection of rare hot-house and other flowers, chiefly exhibited by Col. Pennant, Lady Wil- loughbv de llrokrt, an I Miss Huberts, Gorge Hotel. Mr. Robert DavieH P.odlor.deb, had a splendid selection of British ferns, about 100 varieties, and which took the first prize. Col. l'enniiit had also a sin tll collection of exotic ferns, some of which were very beautiful speci- mens. Amongst the more rare of the hothouse flowers ex- hibited, were the following :-A tine specimen of the Drae(viie. Feria Graudis," from Penrhyn Castle; a "Cissus DMuofa," from the George Hotel; specimens of the Alocasia Metalica and ("oloin Vershawtfelti; also a magnificent Allsophila Aitsti-aii,3, and Latania Borbon- ica, from Penrhyn Castle. There was also a magnifi- cent show of Fuchias in full bloom. The show of Dahlias was unusually good; but those exhibited by Mr. Wilson Llaudegai, distanced all com- petitors, "nl he carried oif the two first prizes. He had likewise the first prize for a set of Verbenas. Messrs Dickson and Sons, Newton Nurseries, near Chester, exhibited a number of lfowers, which are now becoming quite fashionable, namely, the Hybrids of "Gladiolu", Gandavensis," which were generally ad. mired. They were a most brilliant, autumnal, hardy flower, and thveaten in time to displace the long esta- blished favourites, the Dahlias and the Hollyhocks. We have stated, the grapes were superb and there were two bunches (not for competition) sent by the Hon. W. 0. Stanley, of enormous size, which attracted much attention. There were also some tine bunches from Penrhyn Castle, but as the colour was not first- rate, they did not obtain the first prize. Of course the names of the successful competitors will be given be- low. The cases of mixed vegetables were unusually good, those from Penrhyn Castle and the George Hotel being perfect in their way. as was also a ca. belonging to Mr. Roberts, of Llandegai. The competition in this department was very close, and indeed we should think the Judges had great difficulty in deciding to which the superior excellence belonged. Upon the platform, in front, were several floral de- vices of considerable merit and uniqueness. There was a fancy rural cottage, oomposed of dahlias and other flowers by Mr. Hobert Pavies, of Llandegai: whilst Mr. Roberts, Clerk of the Works, exhibited a really beau ti- ful bird cage, composed chiefly of lfowers, which was the production of his gardener, Mr. John Thomas. Between these two works of floral art, there was another even more fanciful still, namely, a Welsh goat, made of dahlias, &c., a kind of grass forming the tail and beard, two cactus leaves representing the horns, and two laurel leaves the ears.

RUTHIN. LICENSES.—The annual meeting for granting public house licenses wa held 011 Monday, at the County Hall. All were renewed, but no new ones were granted. DENBIOH, RUTHIN, AND COHWEN RAILWAY.—The half- yearly meeting of the Shareholders of this railway was held at the Ruthin Station on Monday last. We were informed that no business was transacted, and the meet- ing was adjourned till a future day not far hence, in order, we presume, to place the Directors in a position to announce the formal opening of the line to Cur- wen. BOARD OF GUARDI.\NS.- The following were present at the meeting of guardians on Monday last :-Rey. David Roberts (in the chair); Rev. John Griffith, Llan- ynys; Rev. J. O. Jones, Llangwyfan; J. J. Bencroft, Esq.; R. G. Johnson, Esq.; R. J. Farbridge, Esq. and Mr. David Owens. The business transacted was entirely of a routine character. Out-relief expended during past fortnight, E186 18s.

RHYL. I LECTUnE.-The Rev. Hugh Stowell Brown, of Liver- pool, delivered a lecture on Paley and his writings," at the English Baptist chapel, on Thursday evening, the 1st instant. R. Wynne, Esq., presided. Admission free. A collection was made at the close towards the chapel fund. EXCURSION FROM CORWEN. -About two thousand people arrived in this town on Thursday morning by a cheap train from Corwen, Gwyddelwern, Derwen, and ltnthin. The weather was exceedingly fine, and the day Mas happily spent by the excursionists, many of whom we understand were never in view of the sea before. PETTY SESSIONS, Tuesday, August 30th,—Before Col. Rowley, M.P., T. G. Dixon, Esq., and R. Wynne, Esq. John Edwards, of Rhyl, was fined 2s. and 8s. costs, for cruelty to a donkey at the Hackney carriage stand, on the 8th ult. Edward Jones and Hugh Williams were charged by P.C. Thomas with creating a disturbance in Russell Road. Case dismissed. Robert Cornet charged William Hanmer with assault- ing him on the 13th nIt., at Rhyl. Case dismissed. Sarah Cornet charged William and Mary Hanmer (husband and wife) with an assault, on the same day. Complainant, it appeared, was grievously attacked whilst carrying an infant in her arms, by the defen- dants. Tho husband was sentenced to one month's imprison- ment, and the wife to 14 days. Neither of them appeared in court, but a warrant was .ordered for their apprehension. Mrs. Shiel, a widow, charged Joseph Davies and Wm. Williams with assaulting her on the night of the 17th of July, in Vale-road. Mr. Eyton prosecuted, and Mr. R. W. Williams, de- fended. It transpired that Mrs. Shiel, on the night in ques- tion, had been making mourning at the house of a Mrs. Bland. She left there at 12.30, and was accompanied by a Mr. Perkins, as far as the railway, where he left her. After she had passed a few yards from the gates, Davies came up to her, and wished her good night," following her down the road to the corner of the lane leading to her house, where he seized her by the waist, and attempted to throw her down. Williams theu came over a wall, and laid hold of her by the shoulders, while Davies took hold of her feet. She screamed "murder," and on getting from them, she went to the house of a neighbour, viz., Mr. Cashman, to whom she related her trouble. The case was considered proved, and their worships sentenced Davies to one month's imprisonment, with hard labour, and Williams was lined C I 12.8., including costs A Mr. Hughes was summoned, under the authority of the Rhyl Improvement Commissioners, for throwing dirty water on the streets. Case dismissed 011 the payment of costs. Lice)t,ic.i.-All the licenses in the town were renewed at this meeting. New licenses was granted to Mr. Os- borne, of the Prince of \Vales tavern, Vale-road, and to Mr. Thomas, Windsor Inu, Windsor-street. The pro- prietor of the Britannia Inn, was cautioned, the police having reported the house to be badly conducted oil two or three occasions.
SEA BATHING. I To the Editor of the North Wales Chronicle. Sir,-In common with all to whom I have spoken on the subject, I am glad to see, by the notice board on the Parade opposite the bathing machines for males, that the Llandudno Improvement Act, 1864, provides for a penalty against persons bathing without drawers or co- vering. I presume the Act has come into operation. If so, upon whom does the enforcement of the penal clause devolve? At present, the Act is evaded daily from 7 a.m. to about noon, according to the state of the tide. Surely, the clause is worse than useless, if it cannot be enforced by the town authorities, by whom, I .presume, the Act was obtained I would merely add, the evil is not only a nuisance to the visitors, but will prove a positive hardship to the letters of lodgings, at the east end of the town, who live by the visitors, aifd, I doubt not, pay rates and taxes equally with those not subject to this drawback. I remain, Sir, Your very obedient servant, A VISITOR. Llandudno, August 31st, 1864. A VISITOR.
=-=- BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. LONDOX cùnx M.UtKET—FRIDAV. Prices about the same as on Monday. LIVERPOOL CORN MARKET—FRIDAY. Little change, excepting corn a turn lower. WAKEFIELD CORN JURKGr-FuiDAY. Old wheat firm; new in favour of Imyer; barley in fair demand.
REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE DURING THE PAST WEEK. With] two-days rain in the course of the past week, all veg- atation has been greatly refreshed, but the long continuance of drought requires a more plentiful supply for esculents and the recovery of the meadows. The substratum of the soU, especially in light lands, is still dry and dusty; but the harvest work is net quite completed, where corn has yet to be gathered the further supply'of rain may be beneficially deferred. It would seem that Sunday's rain was connected with severe local storms, both in. urious to property and life, but that of Tuesday was universally favourable. The ground being previously dry vejy little im- pediment has occurred in the hitrvqo work, and a large bulk of the new crop has been now gathered The yield remains doubt- I ful; reports being conflicting; but enough is known to be assured that we have not the plenty of last year, and we may be below the average of seasons. This applies to wheat alone barley is better spoken of; oats appear very deficient in places as well as peas; while beans, both winter and spring, turn out very badly almost everywhere. In accordance with our anticipation* wheat was rather hardened in value, and as the estimated quan- tity in America is very much below the mark, and the harvest with more doubtful weather, is not gathered in North Europe' we are not so certain of an abundance for our increasing poputf ation as of late Egypt, the granary of the whole world, has again failed and if the Western States of the New World, whence oar supplies principally come in a time of need, should really be in & ILe predicament, neither holders in the Baltic or Black Sea are likely to overlook their opportunity to rise prices. Free trade and Steam communication may inspire our own agricultural community, as well as that abroad, with enlarged commercial views, and suggest the advmnbleness of waiting for remuner- atiye price). But little difference has occurred in France and on the continent; but in consequence of a decline in gold and the exchange at New York. and unfavourable advices hence, the values of breadtuffs have been lessened.
BANGOR, Sept 2nd -There was an average attendance at our market to-day gnin samples a moderate supply prices station. ery; butcher's meat a good supply, and prices unaltered.

LIVERPOOL WOOL MARKET—SATURDAY. Scotch There has been less doing in wooi this week, owing partly to consumers having supplied themselves freely at the clip. and to the high rate of discount, which ha, a tendency to malle people curtail their operations as much as possible. s. d. s. d. Laid Highland Wool per 24Ibs 21 0 to 22 0 White Highland do.26 0 28 Laid Cheviot do..unwashed 3*' 0 36 Do. do..washed 36 0 38 White Cheviot do..washed 54 0 6 0 Foreign, There has been still a good demand for all long-stapled clean wool; whilst for low and bad-conditioned there has been less doing, and as long as discount remains so high, great caution will, no doubt, be exercised in making purchases.

LONDON" SEED MARKET-.tIo.VDAT. The seed market continues firm for all descriptions of seed Red cloverseed is held for full prices, and with but few samples offering.

BIRMINGHAM CATTLE MARKET-TUESDAY. We received a full time of year supply of beasts on offer this day the average quality inferior. Prime beasts reali3ed late rates, inferior sold rather easier. The supply of sheep was large, the general quality useful; the trade steady at late prices. The supply of lambs was extensive; the general quality fair. The trade ruled slow, at late quotations.

HOLLOW VY*S PILLS.— Enjoyment of life.—When the blood is pure, its circulation perfect, and the nerves in good order, we are well. These Pills possess a marvellous power in securing these great secrets of health, by purifying and regulating the fluids, and strengthening the solids. Hoilowaf's Pills can be confidently recommended to all persons suffering from disor- dered digestion, or worried by nervous fancies or neuralgic pains They correct acidity and headburn dispel sick headache, quicken the action of the liver, and act as alteratives and gentle aperients. The weak and delicate may take thein without fear. Holloway's Pills are eminently serviceable to invalids of nervous temperament, as they raise the action of every organ to its natural standard, and universally exercise a calming and brac- ing influence. There are perhaps few phases of disease, more generally dif- fused in all their various and painful forms than that known by the name of Rupture, and its attendant Viscreal protrusions, Ac* « And although its mechanical remedies have been nigh as num- erous, they have nevertheless, been but partially successful with but one, and that, a most favourable exception. We here allude to Mr. White's, Moc-Main Patent Lever Truss in which the in- ventor a surgeon in most extensive practice -wisely abandon ing the use of the old circular spring, has so happily combined his materials, as at once to produce an Instrument, perfect in operation, comfortable in wear, and praiseworthily economical in cost. The Truss is further alluded to in our advertising co- umna. SALVEO PEDES.—At the present time, when so many travellers, tourists, and sportsmen suffer from tender feet, nothing will be found so soothing and efficacious M Salveo Pedes," a lotion for the feet, which can be ob- tained of any chemist throughout the kingdom, andof A* Sleigh, who manufactures it, at 13; Littfe Britain, Lon. don.
