CARDIFF. 10TH. RIFLE Corps.-Chtirch Parade on Tuesday next. Muster at the Drill Hall at 10 a.m. Full uniform, waist belts, and side arms to be worn. Band to attend. SMALL Pox. -In addition to the cases of small-pox men- tioned at the Board of Guardians on Saturday, a case has been reported as having broken out in Christina-street, Cardiff. THE CAMBRIDGE LOCAL EXAMINATIONS.âThe lists of successful candidates at the last Cambridge Local Exami- nations, Bristol centre, were published on Friday. We are glad to observe that Mr. C. F. Vachell, eldest son of the late Dr. Charles Vachell, has passed amongst the Seniors. He was one of the pupils presented for exami- nation from the Milton Abbas School, Blandford. SOCIETY OFFRIENDS.âMr. Samuel Bowly of Gloucester, Mr. Pumphrey of Cirencester, members of the Society of Friends, and one or two other prominent members, held a public meeting for worship last evening, at the Town-hall, which was largely attended by persons belonging to almost every denomination. There was, as usual with this body of Christians, no fixed order for the service, but the entire proceedings were of a deeply devotional character. A short address, and the reading of a chapter in the New Testament, by a gentleman whose name we did not learn, opened the meeting, followed by fervent addresses by Messrs. Bowly and Pumphrey. The hall was densely crowded, and a deep impression appeared to be made upon the audience by the earnest and practical addresses of the speakers. The meeting closed with prayer and the usual benediction. THE BOROUGH POLICE AND THE WAGES QUESTION.â This matter, which at the present moment is agitating every trade and calling in the country, is exercising the Cardiff Borough police. The example of Newport, Bris- tol, Birmingham, and other towns, and the increase in the salaries of police officers which has there been made, have led, we understand, to a general movement in our force for an advance upon the present rate of payment. The salaries at present are â inspectors 30s ser- geants 28s., first-class constables 24s second class 23s., third class 22s., and fourth class 21s. The members of the force will bring the matter before the Watch Committee at its next meeting, and request a proportionate increase throughout each rank. REFUSINGTODO P UTY. -At the police court on Saturday, (before Mr. E. S. Hill and Mr. G. Bird), James Mention and John Lee were charged with refusing to do duty abroad the brig Spring, of South Shields, on the 12th of February. The captain (John Ford) said that the prisoners refused to do anything he told them. The prisoners, in defence, said that the ship was all out of order, and the food was very bad. The magistrates asked them if they would go aboard, and they refused and they were sentenced to 10 weeks' imprisonment with hard labour. A SELF-CONFESSED DESERTER.âAlfred Woodward, 28, was charged, on his own confession, with deserting from the 17th Royal Artillery at Woolwich, in May, 1863. He was remanded until next Wednesday in order that in quiries might be made.. CRIMPING.âWilliam Anstone was charged with being aboard the Russian ship Venice, with the intention of committing a felony. That charge was withdrawn by the police, and the prisoner was proceeded against for in- ducing certain sailors to desert their ship.âMr. Ander- son, the mate, was called and said that the prisoner came aboard the ship as soon as she got into the dock, and asked if there were any sailors who wished to leave, and he said no. The prisoner came there several times after- wards and endeavoured to induce some of the men to come away. He was remanded until Monday.
