To the Editor of the Monmouthshire Merlin. Sia,-It is the study of every well-inclined citizen to do as much good as he can, and I humbly take leave, through the columns of the MERI-in> 10 acquaint the public of Newport of a fact that a great number of dead pigs and sheep have been landed in this port, out of a vessel from Ireland, and that the whole stock has been purchased by individuals in the town. The loss of some forty or fifty pIgS, and a score of sheep, is a serious one to the owner, and be has a right, of course, to sell the dead carcases to any one who chooses to buy, and the purchasers of euch sto k, it is presumed, buy sole'y for the sake of the skin, and for melting down. Without, sir, making any insinuations, or charging any person or persons with doing anything to turn the stomachs of the inhabitants, or injure their health, I shall merely beg leave to offer n suggestion, that theie ought to be a kind of censorship of all such stock above alludtd to, brought into port by vessels. The circumstances ought to be made public before the sale and the authorities should order an inspection. It should be known by the authorities to whom the dead animals were sold, and for what purpose; and the police should be on the look-out, that no improper use be made of such meat. The stock alluded to died in consequence of the badness of the passage, I am, sir, your obedient servant, AN OBSERVER. Newport, Dec. 15, 1847. ,+-
