J J MILFORDâ-MISSIONARY MEETINGS.âOn Mon- day and Tuesday evenings last, the Missionary Meet- ings connected with the Wesleyan and Independent persuasions in this town, were numerously and res- pectably attended. The worthy Chairman, R. Mathias, Esq. pointed out in a very impressive speech the benefits resulting from Missions generally; and several very interesting anecdotes, calculated to excite a favourable impression on the minds of the congre- gation, were related by the Rev. J. Ray, Missionary from the East Indies, and who has been resident there upwards of twenty years. The usual resolutions having been moved and seconded by the Rev. Messrs. Warlow, Randerson, Blackett, Thomas, &c.,a vote of thanks to the worthy Chairman for his ab!e conduct therein, was put and carried unanimously; and the meeting separated highly pleased with the proceedings of the evening. The collections amounted to con- siderably more than those of the former year.

MAIL COACH ACCIDENT.âAs the Milford and Gloucester Mail was going on Tuesday morning last out of Liaudilo, it met a timber carriage which was on the wrong side of the road, and the horses becoming restive, the coach struck against the carriage, and precipitated Mr. W. Beynon, the coachman from his seat, who feU between the- leaders, by which one of his legs was fractured and otherwise much injured; but, we are happy add, that he is in a fair way of recovery. Great blame is attached to the driver of the carriage, who was fast asleep on the load of timber at the time of the accident, and. did not hear the ap- proach of the coach, although the guard blew his horn repeatedly. A windmill on an improved plan has been erected at the village of Wick, near Cowbridge, by Evan Christopher, of Cowbridge, Mason, for Mr. Samuel Thomas, of the former place, maltster. The mill shifts its sails to the wind as occasion requires, and also reeves and unreeves them without assistance, and works three pairs of stones. It is considered by persons of superior judgment to be a piece of excellent workmanship. Height of the mill, 60ft. diameter at the base, 24ft at the top, 14ft. No plumb-line or trowel was used.- Carmarthen Journal.
