CARDIGAN.—ATTEMPTED HIGHWAY ROBBERY.—A few nights since, as Mr. Thomas D ivies, master mariner, of Saint Dogmells, was coming to Cardigan, when about three hun- dred yards from Edwards's limekiln, two men rushed out from the gate nearly opposite the blacksmith's shop, and made a snatch at his watch but fortunately he saved his watch, and having knocked one of the robbers down, he ran into town to give information to the police. WBECK.—On Tuesday morning last, a large schooner was driven into Trathmawr, nea.r St David's, with a crew of 12 men. all of whom were saved, but the vessel became a total wreck. THE Onn FELLOWS' CLUB at Cardigan, although only seventy members, have, within these eightenen months, paid out of their funds upwards of £130 to the 9)ck apd widows of deceased members, II ABERYSTWYTH.—PHRENOLOGY AND PHRENO-MESMER- ISM. — Messrs. Davey and Jackson have been for the last few days delivering lectures in this town on phrenology and phreno-ities.nerism, bttt they were verv fhinlyattended, with the exception of the one delivered on Friday evening, the 1st instant, when. we are happy to say, the rooms were nearly full. Mr. Jackson's addresses on phrenology were very in- teresting on all occasions, and Mr. Davey's mesmeric experi- ments were truly wonderful. On the Friday mentioned Mr. Jackson lectured on the medical application of mesmerism and the inflnence ot phrenological development on health, disease, and longevity afte- which Mr. Davey recited many interesting cases, and performed his experiments on Mr. Geo. Careswell, of the Assembly Rooms, and another gentlemen of the town. And he also mesmerised his own son and another young man, whom he could easily put under his mesmeric influence. After putting them fast asleep, Mr. Davey exerted their several organs, which was very amusing to the audience. The operations performed by him while they were under the mesmeric sleep was truly wonderful and we think that not one left the room on that evening without being fully con- vinced of the truth of the science. Many other interesting experiments were performed by him on previous occasions, when he mesmerised two young men of the town, and adeaf- and-dumb lady, of his own establishment. He gave full proof of her hearing while under the influence..1 MINE ACCIDENT AND Loss OF LIFE. -A dreadful accident I occurred on Wednesday last, at the Frongoch lead mines, near Aberystwyth, the property of the Right Hon. the Earl of Lisburne. Seven of the miners were making preparations early in the morning for commencing when one placed alighted pipe,iwhich he had momentarily taken from his mouth, near some powder which they were about to use. This ignited three half-cwt. barrels close by; and aft explosion, heard for miles distant, follnwed, the place being instantly enveloped in flames. One poor man was killed on the spot; two others so severely injured that they survived but a few hours; and the remaining four are in such a dreadfu) state that their death is hourly expected. Inquests upon the three unfortunate suf- ferers were held on Thursday, and,verdicts in accordance with the evidence were returned. In each case the poor men have left a wife and several children to lament their untimely loss. e
