CARDIGAN. LIFE-BOAT.âA public meeting has been held in this town, which was attended by the principal shipowners, merchant", and others connected with-this port and town, for the pur- pose of considering the best means of procuring a life-boat. In consequence of the serious loss of life at the Agnes Lee, of North Shields, John Clarence master, on the 11th of January last, the necessity of having a boat of this descrip- tion seems to be most seriously entertained by all parties, and, is being taken up with earnestness and good feeling. J. S. Harford, Esq., the unsuccessful candidate at the late election, has subscribed 1,25 towards this laudable object. Mr. Pryse Pryse was not aware of the meeting being held, but his agent, Mr. Thomas Davies, promised a large con- tribution. The subject has been taken up with great spirit, and it is to be hoped their humane efforts will be crowned with complete success. About £ 150 has already been sub- scribed, but it is not sufficient to meet the various contin- gencies connected with this laudable object. Application has been maclp to Lloyd's, and other public boards who are expected to render their assistance. PUBLIC LIGHTS.âIt is intended to light the streets of thfw town with oil lamps. A rate of one penny in the pound is estimated to cover the expense after the- flrst cost of erecting the lamps.
