Cowardly Attack.—Attention was called to the anonymous letter, signed Celtus, and leading article which appeared in the last issue of the Cambrian News respecting the town of Machynlleth. The Committee expressed a strong feeling of indignation as to the same and keenly felt for the respected gentleman and family, who in his great illness, should be subjected to such a cowardly and unwarrantable attack. The committee unanimously passed the following resolutions, and the clerk was directed to send a copy of the same to Mr Gillart. Mr Joseph Evans appropriately thanked the Committee for their expression of sympathy with Mr Gillart in his illness, and also for their warm dis¬ approval of the unfounded accusations contained in the letter and the article mentioned. Air Evans said that Mr Gillart had been a member of the Board of Guardians for a great number of years, and tried at all times to do his duty honestly and impartially. RESOLUTIONS. 1.—That this meeting having read with great regret a letter in the Cambrian News of Friday last, signed " Celtus," and also a leading article upon the Sanit¬ ary state of Machynlleth, consider the letter and article most unjustifiable, misleading & exaggerated. 2.—That Mr Gillart as Chairman of the Board of Guardians, has not as such, anything to do with the Sanitary Board, which is generally and almost in¬ variably presided over by a Guardian other than the chairman of the Board ; and that Mr Gillart is therefore in no way to blame for any delay that may have taken place in the carrying out of the Water Supply by the Parochial Committee of which he is not the appointed chairman. 3.—That we must express our sincere sympathy, that when lying on a bed of sickness, Mr Gillart should thus mcst unjustly be subjected to this un¬ feeling attack.
