At Merionethshire Assizes, last week, six Qf the grand jury were named Williams and six Jones. We understand that the Rev. David Williams, Rector of Nannerch, will be nominated as Rector in convocation for the archdeaconry of St. Asaph, whenever a dissolu- tion of the present Parliament takes place, and we do not anticipate any opposition to his election. MERIONETHSHIRE Asslzr:s.-In our report,last week it was stated that William Jones, Esq., Glandwr, served on the grand jury. We have since ascertained that he was not there, and hasten to correct the error. LENT SERVICES AT BANGOR CATHEDRAL.—The Rev. D. Jones, Vicar of Pwlheli, has been preaching at the Cathedral, this week and the Rev. Mr. Hughes, Rec- tor of Caerwys, preached at the same place last week. The services were well attended. CLERICAL APPOINTMENTS.—The Lord Bishop of Ban- gor has collated the Hev R. Kil!in, late Incumbent of St. David's, Festiniog, to the Vicarage of Clynnog. We also learn that Mrs. Oakley, Plas Tanybwlch, has nom- inated the Rev. John Davies, Llamiwchlyn, to succeed Mr. Killin, St. David's.—We understand that the Rectory of Edeyrn, in Lleyn, in this county, vacant by the death of the Rev. J. P. Parry, has been conferred upon the Rev. Eleazer Williams, of Tydweiliog. LECTURE.—On Monday last, the Rev. R. Gwesyn Jones, Merthyr Tydvil, delivered a lecture in the Mar- ket Hall, Bangor; the subject being, Cam, priodi, a byw "-Courtship, Marriage, and Marriage Life. Ad- mission was by ticket, but the attendance was exceeding ly thin. BANGOR LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH.—The usual fort- nightly meeting of this board was held on Thursday last. Present—H. Kennedy, Esq. (in the chair), Mr. J. K. Douglas, Mr. G. Simpson, and Mr. W. Thomas. The Surveyor reported that part only of the Upper Bangor pig nuisance had been abated, and on the appli- cation of the occupier, a short time was allowed to re- move the remainder. The Surveyor further reported that the Caemaes Lodig drainage had been completed, with the exception of the other two connections to be made by the owners of the adjoining property; and that the "main along the fields opposite Erw Fair Terrace was choked up, and the sewage rising up and running into the river Adda." The board gave directions that the latter be immediately attended to, and a fur- ther report on its state be made to the next meeting. After signing cheques for the current accounts, the board separated. FATAL ACCIDENT TO A NEVIN CAPTAIN.—An acci- dent occurred in the harbour of Bangor, on Monday, tho 27th ultimo, which has terminated fatally. Captain O. Jones, master of the Prosper," of Nevin, had gone on Board of another vessel with the Captain of the same. The night was dark and on his return, he accidentally slipped down the gangway, which happened to be open at the time, and falling heavily on his back, broke the spine, towards the lower part of the body. A medical gentleman was at once sent for; who on ascertaining the nature of the injury, saw at once that the case was a hopeless one, and that the death of the poor unfortu- nate man was only a question of time. He lingered, how- ever. until Monday morning last, fully conscious of his approaching end, when he expired at 10 o'clock. On Tuesday, his remains were placed in an omnibus, to be taken to his family (a mother and two sisters) to Ne- vin, for interment. On passing up High-street, Bangor, the Omnibus had on it several Union Jacks, and a great number of Captains and sailors joined in the procession, which was a very large one. Deceased was a quiet and respectable man, and his untimely death is greatly de- plored by all who knew him. THE WLATHETI -The departing, long, severe, and dreary Winter, seems unusually loath to leave us and he has given us a parting taste of his metal, which none of us were prepared for. On Saturday, Sunday, and Monday last, it blew a heavy gale from the east and south-east which has done a great deal of mischief on different parts of the sea coast, especially at Shields, the Isle of Man, and at London The wind was intensely cold, as the thermometer was several degrees below the freezing point, which is very unusual at this time of the year. In this district, no great amount of damage was done but a fishing smack belonging to Beaumaris, broke its cable anll was dashed upon the shore, and will require considerable repairs to put her all right again and trees have been blown down in several places—one at the entrance gate to the Bishop's palace, which snap- ped assunder as if it had been a rotten stick. The great cold, however, was the most remarkable feature of this equinoctial storm, which, as it has been of such long continuance has prevented the slightest signs of vegeta- tion from appearing, so that the Spring, up to the pre- sent time is a very late one. The gale was so strong on Monday morning, that the Ferry boat could not cross at the Garth Ferry. WELSH MEMORIAL TO THE PRINCE CO-TSORT.-The Castle H ill, at Tenby, is quite alive with the workmen engaged in the cairn which is to form the base of the monument. This is about 75 feet square at the base, and 50 feet on the top, in the centre of which a mass of so- lid masonry, well grouted, 125 teet square, has been built up from the solid rock to form the foundation on which the pedestal will be placed. The base of the pedestal will consist of three courses of large blocks of native marble, each course of which will form a step, 12 inches high, and upon the centre of the upper tier the pedestal will be placed The pedestal will be also built of na- tive marble, with the exception of the four panels- these will be of Sicilian marble-on one of which will be placed the arms of the Prince Consort, on another those of Wales, the two remaining ones will be filled up with suitable inscriptions. The statue of the Prince Consort, by the eminent sculptor Mr. Thomas, will be about nine feet high, so that the entire height of the memorial (not including the cairn") will be 26 feet. A confident expectation is felt that the memorial will be one worthy of the great and good prince it is meant to commemorate, and the people of Wales by whom it is to be erected. The view on the platform from the top of the cairn is extensive, varied, and beautiful, and includes portions of the counties of Pembroke, Carmar- then, Brecon, Glamorgan, Somerset, Devon, and Corn- wall There are now upwards of 1000 subscribers to the fund, amongst the names of whom are those of the Countess and Countess-Dowager of Cawdor, Lady Llan- over, Lady Tredegar, Lady Catherine Allen, the Bishop of St. David's, Lord Dynevor, Lord Tredegar, Lord Ruthven. Sir Hugh Owen, Bart., M.P., Sir Thomas Davies Lloyd, Bart., Mr. G. Lort-Phillips, M. P., Mr. J. H. Seourfield, M.P., Mr. Crawshay Bailey, M.P., the Archdeacon of St. David's, the mayors of Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff, Brecon, Neath, Oswestry, Haverford- west, Pembroke, and Tenby.
