The d y was ushered in by the ringing of bells and firing of cannon, which were continued almost without intermission the whole dav.

About half-past eleven a procession was formed at the Town-hall, headed by the Portreeve, and other members of the Corporation, preceded by a drum and fife band, and followed by the committee and a large number of the inhabitants, proceeded to the Town Park (the use of which was kindly granted for the occasion by the Rev. J. N. Harrison, Vicar), where a royal salute of 21 guns was fired, followed by vociferous cheering for the Queen and the Prince and Princess of Wales. Va- rious sports, viz., foot-races for men, boys, and girls, for prizes of money and other articles, leaping and jumping' climbing greasy pole for legs of mutton, donkey races hurdle races, jumping in sacks, football, &c were then began, and kept up with great spirit and enjoyment till dark. At 4 o'clock all the children in the town and neighbourhood (about 500 in number), were regaled with tea and cake in the National and Infant school- rooms ;âthe various Sunday schools taking the pre- cedence. After the children, about 100 poor women partook of the same excellent fare, and the remainder of the liberal quantity of cake provided was distributed among the poorer inhabitants. In the 9 an immense bonfire was lighted in the Town Park and produced a blaze which was seen for miles round A brilliant display of fireworks by W. Norton, Esq., The Castle, brought to a close the proceedings of a day which will be long remembered by old and young of the inhabitants of this district, and pleasurably asso- ciated with the happy event connected with it NEWCASTLE-EMLYN.âASSESSMENT COMMITTEE On Friday last a large and influential meeting of the landed proprietors, farmers, and others, interested under the New Assessment Act, was held at the Magistrates' Room, Newcastle-Emlyn, under the presidency of Sir Thomas Davies Lloyd, Bart., the esteemed chairman of the Board of Guardians, when the following rate of deductions from the gross estimated value was recorn- mended :-Land without buildings, 5 per cent; with do., 15 per cent; houses and storehouses, above £6 rental, 25 per cent; mills and factories, 40 per cent; tithe rent charge, 20 per cent; cottages under X6, 35 per cent.

Another meeting will be held next month at the opening of Cilrhedyn new church. BRECHF A.-REJOICINGS,-The inhabitants of this quiet little village, were not behind the rest of the Queen s subjects in showing their loyalty to her Ma- jesty, on the occasion of the marriage of the Prince of Wales to the young and beautiful Princess Alexandra, and celebrated the auspicious event by all the rejoicings in their power. Tea and cake in abundance were given in the village schoolroom, by the more respectable in- habitants of the neighbourhood, to all the poor people and children of the place, and large bonfires on the neighbouring hills, ended a very pleasant day, TALLEY.âREJOICINGS.âThe auspicious occasion of the marriage of the Prince of Wales, was not allowed to pass without a loyal and enthusiastic celebration by the inhabitants of Talley and its neighbourhood.

LLANFAIRARYBRYN.âREJOICINGS.âWe are glad to state that even in our rural districts the memorable event of the marriage of the Prince of Wales did not pass by unheeded. On Tuesday last the national school chil- dren of Capel-Gufab, in the parish of Llanfairarybryn, amounting to the number of 80, sat down. in the school- room to a nice treat of tea and cake, provided by the kind munificence of H. Gwynne Vaughan, Esq, of Clyng- hordy. Tea ended, the health of the Prince and Princess of Wales was proposed, and heartily responded to by the loud huzzas of the juvenile party. After the other usual toasts they retired to the Clynghordy grounds, where they were met by a large concourse of country people, who had assembled to compete in some rustic sports. The winners were presented by Mr. Gwynne Vaughan with money and articles of dress. The loyal party then re- tired, highly delighted with their day's amusement. LLANELLY.âTHE HARBOUR COMMISSIONERS.âA meeting of the Commissioners was held on Friday, in the Harbour Office. There were presentâMr. O. Williams, Mr. N. Broome, Mr. E. Jenkins, Mr. Dunkin, and Mr. R B. Jones. There was not a sufficient number of Commissioners present to form a quorum, and no business was done. The Harbour-master's Report, Was laid upon the table, and is as follows:â"The slag and ashes received this month for the repairs and extension of the slag bank has been 3,465 tons. The gap between the end of the stag tip and the ballast ground opposite, from the very favourable state of the weather is now fast closing. The river Loughor at present keeps entirely on the north shore, running nearly in a direct line from Loughor to the Black Skar and on to Careg-fach, from there on nearly in a direct line to the Whitland Light House. A considerable sand bank has accumulated in a heavy gale, on the 20th of January, across the entrance of the new dock. The Pembrey Pool is also much more exposed to the swell and sea from the lowering of the Hooper Sands since that gale. On the 27th No. 7 buoy was stove in and replaced the following day. The Caldy moorings are so much disturbed from the number of vessels which seek refuge from bad weather in ad verse winds as to render the mooring use- lessâbeing of no use to the skiffs-it will be advisable to bring them back to Llanelly. Mr. Elias Jenkins's sug- gestion at the last meeting that a ball should be hoisted at the Whitford Light House, when the sea at the Bar is so broken as to be dangerous, must be a most satisfactory warning to the pilots of Llanelly and Pembrey. Other signals would also be useful to the steamboats, as a cone hois'ed would indicate to steamers that vessels were in the offing requiring their services. Annd if the cone be hoisted mast up it would intimate that a vessel was in distress, requiring a steamboat's services. It has been recommended that a coloured pane of glass should be put into one of the gas lights at the New Dock it is now being done and placed in a line with the Harbour and Whitford Light Houses, thereby being a safe leading light to the vessels either approaching or leaving the port. In the course of a fortnight the Harbour Light House will have received a small substantial repair. The Whitford Light House and the Ceres Pilot Ship are in good order. The sluicing keeps on steadily removing large masses from the floats near to the Slag Bank.
