CARMARTHENSHIRE. TOWN COUNCIL.âAn adjourned meeting of the Car- marthen Town Council was held on Tuesday at which there were present:âThe Mayor, Alderman J. G. PhiliPpS, T. C. Morris, Esq., Councillors J. Lewis, T. Jones, J. Adams, J. Lewis, E. B. Warren, and Job Jones. Mr. T. Jones called the attention of the Council to the fact that the Municipal Listof Voters was very de- fective, there being about 150 duly qualified voters who were omitted from the list and thereby deprived of their franchise. He moved that proper lists be made out and that the names of all persons entitled to vote be included 1II such lists. He mentioned the subject because it was necessary the new lists should be made out before the ";th of September. The collector was sent for and di- rected to make out a proper list of voters The meeting w,5 then adjourned till Thursday (yesterday) in order to give an opportunity to Mr. Fowler to attend and give such explanations as were required relative to the Works at the New Market. Yesterday a very full meeting of the Council took place, but as Mi. Fowlei did not at tend the meeting was further adjourned until this day. A report of the proceedings will found in another column. VESTRY ,AIFFTIN(-In pursuance of an Act of Par- liament which received the Royal Assent on the 21st of July last, the first vestry meeting was held in Saint David's Church, Carmarthen, yesterday, for the purpose of electing Churchwardens for the district chapelry of St. David's. After the usual formalities had been gone through, the Rev. D. A. Williams, Minister of St. David's, nominated John Lewis Phillips, Esq., as his churchwarden. Joseph Heginbottom, Esq., then pro- posed, and Mr. John Adams, jun., seconded a motion that W. Simons, Esq., be the Churchwarden on behalf of the householders in the district. The motion was carried unanimously, and the meeting then separated. MILITARY MOVEMENTS.âIt is said that the 75th regiment will leave Wales next week. The troops will embark from Cardiff and Pater on board the lihada- m an th us and Pee steam-vessels, for conveyance to Waterford, whence they will march on to Birr, where the head quarters will be stationed. We cannot with- hold a just tribute of praise to the men of the 75th regiment who have been stationed in Carmarthen, for their uniform good behaviour and soldier-like demean- our. Their high state of discipline is doubtless attri- butable to the military experience of the ofifcers. The 75th regiment will be replaced by the 37th. I'AIHIJ. Kilgcrran fair was held en the 21st instant. There was a very fair shew of four year old oxen, all of which were sold before twelve o'clock at fair rates. Alr. Thomas Jones, Tanners Hall, Llan- dovery, turned out eighty-five oxen. The sale for good heifers was also very animated, while the demand for small stores of all sorts was very sluggish. Fat cattle were in fair supply, and sold at from 4d. to Gd. per lb., sinking offal The shew of horses was very large, prime nags, cart horses, and colts sold well. Caio fair was held 011 the same day. The cattle here offered were smaller, and consequently in less demand at this time of the year; notwithstanding there was a large number so!d at fair prices, those out of condition were mostly driven home. Very few horses were offered for sale at this fair. Llandilo fair was held last Saturday the few oxen offered were sold early, on as good terms as at Kilgcrran, as were also prime steers and heifers. The sale for all inferior beasts was very sluggish, and a great ninny were driven home unsold. The horse fair was well supplied with inferior nags; the few good ones as well 11- colts, sold well, while ordinarv ones were not neglected. No sheep were offered at either of the fairs. The pj fairs at each of those phcee, were well supplied. Porkers, stores, and small pigs, continue in good de- mand at remunerating prices- VISITATION OF TIlE BISHOP or ST. DAVIDS.âThe Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of St. David's held his second visitation of the Clergy in the Archdeaconry of Carmarthen this day, at St. Peter's Church. Divine service commenced at eleven o'clock, the Venerable Archdeacon Bsvan reading the morning service. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Williams, incum- bent of Llanllwch. At the close of the sermon,the Lord Bishop proceeded to the altar and, after lie had taken his seat, the names of the clergy of the district were callcd over. This part of the proceedings of the day having terminated, his Lordship proceeded to de- liver his charge. We have, of course, no room to insert this interesting document this week but shall in a future paper publish it in extenso, and next week we intend to give a fuller account of the proceedings. THE WEATHER AND Criors.-The harvest is Pr- cceding as favourably as can be desired. A large breadth of corn is already cut, and considerably more would be added but from the scarcity of labourers. An intelligent farmer informs us that the crops of barley and oats are most abundant, and the wheat above an average. Should providence continue to us the present fine weather another fortnight, all former gloomy appearances will be dispelled. A CRICKET MATCH is to be played to-day at Llan- diio, between the gentlemen of the Llandilo and Carmarthen Cricket Club. The weather is fine, and we doubt not that good sport will be ensured. EARLY Ilou rs.-We are informed by a correspondent that next Monday is the day appointed for closing all the shops in Carmarthen at eight o'clock in the eveningi thus giving an opportunity to the young men of the town to take a little harmless recreation after the toils of business, and to re-invigorate both mind and body for the better sustaining the fatigues of the succeeding daY- GUEAT NORTH AND SOVTH WALES R.ULWA Y.- By a reference to our advertising columns it will be seen that the promoters of the Great North and South Wales and Worcester Railway continue to add to the list of promoters the names of a majority of the most influential landed proprietors. From the estimates that are already made of the traffic on this line, we have na doubt it will prove a most advantageous investment to the shareholders. A curious piece of antiquity has been lately dug up in the vicinity of Kidwelly castle. It is a silver signet of a large and bulky form with the initials H. D. L. in old English characters, and is supposed to have belonged to one of the early Dukes of Lancaster, who are known to have resided in the castle during a part of the fourteenth century. LLANF.LLY.âALTERATION IN THE ARRIVAL AS" DEPARTURE OF THE LONDON MAIL.âWeareat length able to state that the alteration has been determined on, and that our respected fellow townsman the present spirited proprietor of the Llanelly mail coach, Mr. Francis M'c Kiernin, will in all probability continue the present mail. and the Picton coach will be converted into a mail, thus giving Llanelly two mails daily up and down. The time is arranged, and we learn that the Lon- don mail is to arrive at 3 o'clock p.m., and leave at 9, 30 a. m. The arrival of the Picton mail from Swansea will be at 9, 35 a. m., and it will depart at 5, 35 p. m. The Picton will, however, be continued on the present line to and from Carmarthen. LAUGHAIINE.âOn Tuesday and Wednesday, the 2d and 3d of September, this little watering place is likely to be the scene of much gaiety, as a great number of highly respectable families have promised to visit the town on account of the Bazaar which is in aid of the National School there will be a ball on the evening of Tuesday. The Tenby Band are engaged to attend on the occasion for both days.
