we have had occasion to speak often, not only in terms of common approval, but of rapturous delight. We really hope the hints now given will produce that attention which is necessary to accuracy in the forthcoming portion of the work.

No. 22. We congratulate our South Wales friends on the appearance of this Number; it seems to be the commencement of a series of Views in their division of the Principality; and though, generally speaking, the rugged wildness of the north has no parallel in the scenery of the south, still the latter is infinitely more rich in monastic ruins; and we are sure the drawings of these interesting relics cannot be in better hands than Mr. Gastineau's. The first views are Pembroke Town and Castle, and Pembroke looking west: they are very well done; the engraver is Mr. J. C. Varrall. The second page contains two delightful Views of the Devil's Bridge and its adjacent Cataract; but here we are again constrained to find fault : Mr. Gastineau has not drawn the bridge correctly, or rather he has omitted to give us the iron balustrades which surmount it. Those who have seen the Devil's Bridge within the last ten or twelve years, must remember its balustrades so ill conforming to the style of the masonry: they are discernible from the lowest part of the abyss ; and however picturesque the bridge may appear without them, we have only to repeat the sentiment, that truth should never be sacrificed to effect, which has most assuredly been done in the instance before us.

No. 23, consists of St. David's College, Lampeter, and Havod House; the latter is uncommonly well done: it is a lovely retreat, worthy of the taste of Mr. Johns, its late proprietor, a gentleman whose high literary character and scientific acquirements require no encomium from us. The College is also well drawn ; but it labours under a disadvantage in being placed by Havod, the pictorial beauty of which is not exceeded by that of any residence in Wales : Mr. J. Varrall is the engraver. Remains of Aberystwith Castle, and view in the Vale of Rhydiol, give a correct representation of an old fortification conspicuous in Cambrian History; and known, as it is, to the large companies of English fashionables who frequent the now important town of Aberystwith, it is unnecessary to give it further publicity. The view in Rhydiol Vale is pretty, though quite devoid of that ruggid sublimity which characterises several of the other engravings.

...... on Saturday 4 INFIRMARY AT BRECON. It has been decided that the building of an Infirmary shall be commenced forthwith: the marquis Camden has very handsomely given sufficient ground for the purpose. Sir Charles Morgan also, with his usual liberality, made an offer of a very desirable spot for the building, but the situation was not considered so eligible as the former.-Upon a reference to the list of subscribers, it will be observed that George Price Watkins, esq. with a public spirit only to be equalled by his benevolent feelings, has given a splendid sum to an Institution, which has for its object medical and surgical relief for the indigent and distressed. It will be seen that the same feeling has actuated other gentlemen connected with the county, and we have no doubt that so good an example will be generally followed,

CANEDIGION NANT PADARD LLANBERIS.

M. Hughes, of St. Aun's: the members then returned to the society-house, where they dined.
