MERTHYR.

MERTHYR. The new church recently opened at this place narrowly es- caped being burnt down on last Sunday. It appears that a stove, which is employed in ventilating and drying the build- ing, became, in some way, overheated, and, in consequence, the woodwork in a part of the vestry or aisle became charred, and would very likely have soon ignited. Some person who has the care of the building, in going in on Sunday evening, previous to the service, found it full of smoke, and, upon ex- amination, discovered the cause. The fire was speedily extin- guished but there was considerable alarm amongst the inha- bitants in consequence, and the services for the evening were necessarily postponed. INFLUENZA.âThis epidemic, which is now so prevalent, and, in some places fatal, has net passed this town without a visit, though we believe the inhabitants to be less affected than in many places. Vre have not heard of any fatal cases though some have been seriously unwell. Mr. Mayon, an artist of considerable abilities, has been in this place for some time past, and has given great satisfaction by taking the likenesses of several persons, among which is a very good one of William Thomas, Esq., of the Court, our wor- thy magistrate, and popular townsman. JVir. Mayon's studio exhibits several good likenesses; amongst which, known to the town, but unknown to fame, may be mentioned these of John Trot, the crier, and John Farnon, the postman. The person upon whom suspicion had fallen as having caused the accident on the Tail Vale Railway, was fully committed on Saturday last, to take his trial. The evidence, which was very voluminous, and, of course, wholly circumstantial, was deemed, after a very lengthened investigation, sufficient to warrant this comse. CHLOIIOFOKM.'âThe application of this new element in sur- gery, was satisfactorily tried by John James, Esq., surgeon, of this town, in the amputation of a man's leg, near the Pandy. The patient exhibited no signs of suffering during the operation, and is, we understand, gelling on remaikably well. e
