DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. LORD WINDSOK'S rent audit took plaoe at the Clive Arms Hotel, Caerphilly, on Friday. His lord- ship's estate agent, Mr H. Forrest, was in attend- ance. After business the tenants were entertained at dinner. CARDIFF people are warned by some of their local papers that a large number of counterfeit half- crowns, dated 1843, are in circulation just now. There may ba a few in our own neighbourhood, so we pass on the word. THE NEWPORT magistrates, on Satnrday, ordered ten strokes with the birch rod to be administered to a little boy, named Daniel Williams, for placing a stone on the railway, at Risca. Mr Osborne, the station-master, at Cross Keys, found the stone on the line, at a crossing near the station, only a few minutes before the train was due. A GUN ACCIDENT, which might have resulted fa. tally, occurred at Gower-road, near Swansea. A man, named Lodwig, who was going to shoot birdR, was carrying his loaded gun across his shoulder, and while he was crossing a stile he somehow must have touched the trigger, for the gun went off, and the charge entered the thigh of a man who accompa- nied Lodwig. JOHN EDWARDS, aged 26, committed suicide, at Pontardulais, on Friday. A certain charge had been made against him which he said was false. On the day in question he did rot go to work. That nigh-t he told several persons that he was going to do away with his life because he had been wrongly accused. His sister, who is at homo at Llandovery, received a letter from him on Saturday morning, in which he stated that he was going to have a watery grave. His brother arrived at Pontardulais at 11.30 a.m. on the same day from L andovery, and made enquiry, but, could learn nothing of Edwards. A search w'a subsequently male, and on Sunday, about or.e p.m.. Edwards's body was found in the River Loughor. opposite to where he had been working. AT THE MONTHLY meeting of the Vferthyr Union Ns.,essineiit Committee, on Saturday, the assessment of the Rose and C.istle public-house, Aberdare, was, npon the application of Mr Thomas Phillips (on be. half of Mr Jones, the proprietor), reduced to £ 42 108 gross and Y,29 10s to d625 rateable value. The assistant-overseer of Aberdare reported that during the past year there was 134 aopeals from that parish, and a reduction in the rateable value of £ 1.700. Tho assistant-overseer of Mertbyr also re- ported that in that parish there had heen only 16 appeals, with a reduction in the rateable value of £ 683. Some conversation took place upon the num. ber o!' appeals that had been sent in from Aberdare, in the course of which Mr F. James, the Clerk, ex- pressed his opinion that a ro-valuution of that parish outibt not to be made. AT THE BHU OKNO Board of Guardians, on Satur- day, a letter was read from the Loc .l Government Board relative to the escape of Michacl Jordan from the workhouse a few weeks siuce, in which they stated that the circumstances under which he. m?de his escape were much to be regretted As Michael Jordan was known to havo struck his nurse and the medical officer, he ought to have been confined in a ward under strict supervision nntil the medical offi. cer had thoroughly examined him. The case seemed to suggest that additional officers should be ap. pointed, as the master and the matron had the whole of the responsibility, and that Board would suggest that the Guardians should eonjider the question. The Clerk was direoted to reply that the medical officer had taken great pain* to ascertain the condi- tion of the man, and also that the runaway had not been found.
