MACHYNLLETH. The Rent Audit of R. P. Long, Esq., Dolforgan Hail, Kerry, was held at the Herbert Arms, Machynlleth, for the property in the district of Machynlleth, on Friday, the 17th ult by the respected agent, Edward Morgan, Esq., solicitor. An excellent dinner was provided for the tenants, who had a.ssembled in goodly numbers for the occasion, by Mr. and Mrs. David Jones, Herbert Arms, which reflected great credit upon their culinary skill and liberal hospitality. Several toasts were pro- posed, and amongst others those of R. P. Long, Esq., and family, and E Morgan, Esq., which were received with enthusiasm A pleasant evening was spent, aud both agent and tenants separated on best of terms, and with some good cheers for the worthy host for his good cheer that day. MARKET.—It hadbeen a subject fraught with anxiety to all who have at heart the prosperity of this town and neighbourhood, that the state of the markets here have been iucii, for some years past, that, in comparison to other towns of less size and far less antiquity, it might be said to have no market at all. The butchers of Iachynlleth find it, we presume, a profitable specula- tion to pay railway fare to Newtown and Aberystwith aud back, and there to purchase such portions of fresh meat as they require for stall exhibition or for the exe- cution of the orders of their customers. This is now constantly done by our butchers. Farmers in the neighbourhood, on the other hand, send elsewhere for customers to purchase their live stock. We would ear- nestly appeal to the authorities of our town to use their endeavours to put a speedy termination t8 this irregular doing by making strict enquiries as to the root of the evil, and then to apply the proper remedy. The trains now run through to Aberystwith, and although not usually fond of melancholy forebodings, we cannot help thinking that if something is not done soon, we may ex- pect a determinative aspect in the affairs of matters in these districts. We have, however, just been informed by Nlr. David Joues, auctioneer, that he has been in- duced by the strong appeal made to him by some of the farmers, to establish a sale of fat cattle in the town on market days and this he purposes doing fortnightly, on Wednesdays [marker days.] We hope he will be duly encouraged in tuis laudable undertaking, and that both the farmers in the country, and the inhabitants of the town in general, will give him every encouragement in this useful undertaking — QorretpondtnL
