G. Evans appeared for defendant. Case dismissed, owing to insufficient evidence. LAw.-The following communication was re- ceived too late for our last issue:—We are pleased to learn that our late fellow-townsman, Mr. John Davies, was admitted a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Judicature, on Thursday last, having Eissed the final examination of the Incorporated aw Society in January last. THE SPRING CIRCUITS.—The dates for the en- suing Spring Assizes have been fixed as follows:— South Wales (Mr. Justice Lush)—Haverfordwest, Monday, March 11; Cardigan, Friday, March 15 Carmarthen, Tuesday, March 19; Brecon, Satur- day, March 23; Presteign, Thursday, March 28; Chester, Saturday, March 30; Cardiff, Monday, April 8. HEAVY FINE FOR ILLEGAL SALE OF DRINK. -On Monday last, at the Llandyssul petty ses- sions, P. C. Jones (22) charged Annie Lewis, Twelly Side, Llandyssul, with selling intoxicating liquors without a license. Mr. Davies, solicitor, Carmar- then, appeared for the defendant, and pleaded fuilty. This being her fourth offence, she was ned £ 100, and £ 1 2S. 3d. costs, which she paid. Shejwas also ordered to forfeit fl5 worth of intox- icating liquor. CARDIGAN ART CLASS.-Capt. Sir Arthur Mackworth, Bart., R.E., inspected this class on behalf of the Science and Art Department on the 22nd ult., and reported that the prosperity and magnitude of the class was to be attributed to the great interest taken in the class by F. Miles, Esq., and to the gratuitous teaching of Mr. Marshallsay. Sir Arthur remarked that the class was the largest he had inspected. There were 80 students present, and 136 names on the register. The examination of the class will be held in May. WHILST THE YOUNG LADIES' JOURNAL con- tinues to support its high standard of excellence as a monthly magazine for the household, it will al- ways demand a word of commendation from us. The March Part is a very good one; it contains the usual coloured panorama of the latest Parisian novelties, and a large supply of fashion engrav- ings three full-size patterns for cutting out articles of ladies' dress, a very beautiful design printed in colours for Poonah Painting, a new continuous story which opens admirably, and much that is use- ful and pretty for home, as well as personal decor- ation; it is a cheap and very useful magazine for ladies and families. TROEDYRAUB PETTY SESSIONS.—The monthly sessions for this division were held at the Shire- hall, on Tuesday last, before W. Buck, Sv H. Jones-Parry, aid W. 0.. Brigstocke, Esqcs* The only case before the Bench was that of Catherine Davies against Elizabeth Evans, both of Verwig, for using threatening language. The defendant) Elizabeth Evans, was bound over to keep the peace for six months, in her own recognizance, for £5. Two affiliation cases entered were settled out of court. The license of the Trewern Arms, Aber- porth, was temporarily transferred from Mr. David Elias Jones to Mr. Popman, of Aberporth. DROWNING OF A CARDIGAN MAN AT CAR- DIFF.—On Saturday morning last, about 9 o'clock, as William John, of 44,' George-steeet, Cardiff, step-son of Thomas Thomas, master of the pilot cutter, Live Yankee, was returning from sea, and off the low water pier, he fell overboard, and was drowned. No assistance could be rendered him, he being the only person on board the cutter, which was found on the west mud by his brother a short time afterwards, and brought to the Pier Head by him. His body was recovered about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and taken home, where an inquest was held the following Monday. All pilot boats in port hoisted flags half-mast. The deceased was a native of this town, and formerly an apprentice at the Herald Office. WHITLAND AND CARDIGAN RAILWAY.—The half-yearly meeting of the shareholders of this Company was held at Whitland on Tuesday last. Mr. John Owen presided. The report stated that the traffic during the six months had slightly di- minished, compared with the corresponding period of the previous year, owing to the depression of trade. The cost of working had, however, been diminished, which partly made up for the loss sus- tained in traffic. During the coming spring an active canvass would be made for capital to carry the railway to the town of Cardigan. Between £ 13,000 and £ 14,000 had been already subscribed and promised. The report was adopted. Mr. Benjamin Evans, retiring director, was re-elected, and Mr. Higgon, Scolton, was elected a director in the room of Mr. Waterhouse. Mr. T. D. Lewis was re-elected Auditor. THE LIVING OF ST. JOHN'S, PEMBROKE DOCK. Dm —A large meeting was held in the Temperance Hall, Pembroke Dock, on Wednesday, the 20th instant. Mr. C. Forrest; who presided, explained that they had met to sympathise with the Rev. T. Jones B.A. (late curate of St. Mary's, in this town), their respected curate, in consequence of their ap- plication to the Lord Bishop of St. David's to appoint Mr. Jones as vicar of the parish of St. John's, in the place of Dr. Kelly, not having been granted. Messrs. G. Cole and J. Phillips (church- wardens), and Mr. J. Thomas addressed the meet- ing, speaking in eulogistic terms of the Rev. T. Jones services during the ten months he had been curate of the parish, of the good he had done in making improvements in the Church, as well as by his effectual preaching, which had had the effect of considerably increasing the congregation. A reso- lution was unanimously passed by the meeting, expressing its sympathy with Mr. Jones. The Rev. Mr. Morris, vicar of Slebech, Pembrokeshire, is the gentleman who is likely to be appointed to the vacant vicarage of Pembroke Dock. CARDIGAN TOWN COUNCIL. On Thursday last, a meeting of the Corporation was held at the Council Chamber, present—The Mayor (in the chair), Councillors Asa J. Evans, W. Woodward, L. Evans, O. P. Davies, L. James, S. Davies, and Rev. W. Jones. THE WATER SCHEME. The Mayor said that in accordance with the wish of the Council, Mr. Szlumper had inspected the plans, visited the source, and reported thereon. He said that the supply could be greatly augment- ed by laying a nine-inch pipe from Glanbran to the source, and oy inaking branches to take in a sup- ply where a spring was to be found. There was a large waste of water at the source, which could be utilised, and thus increase the supply very mater- ially. The present reservoir was capable of holding only 15,000 gallons, which must be below the aver- age consumption of the present population. They ought to provide a reservoir capable of holding 45,000 gallons, and that could be made at an alti- tude of 145 feet, as proposed, which would prove sufficient for every part of the town, and would be a great boon in case of fire. The present reservoir was not capable of being enlarged to the required extent. On the motion of Mr. Asa J. Evans, seconded by the Mayor, it was resolved that Mr. Szlumper's report be adopted, and copied to the minute book. Mr. Thomas Evans was called in, and reported having put the fences alright at the source, and cleaned the pipes which were nearly filled up. On the motion of Mr. Woodward, seconded by Mr. L. James, it was resolved that a proper person be engaged to make a good and permanent job of the fencing, &c., at the water source, and that a Juick hedge be set, Messrs. L. James and Lewis !vans be appointed to superintend the work. Mr. Asa J. Evans suggested that Mr. Szlumper be asked whether a four-inch pipe would not be sufficient to carry the water down from Glanbran, as the declivity was so great. If so, it would be a great saving in the price of the pipes. Ig Mr. L. James: I repeated the question to Mr. Szlumper, and he said that it might serve them, but that he never liked to connect a four-inch pipe to a main of 6 inches. Mr. Asa J. Evans: I did not know that. It was ultimately decided that the Council meet at 3 p.m. on Monday next, and proceed to view the works, taking with them Mr. Szlumper's report, and judge for themselves. THE LOWER MARKET. The offer of JE18 per annum, by Messrs. Davies Brothers, for the lower market was accepted, to be let concurrent with the market tolls, subject to three months' notice. SHEDS IN THE MARKET PLACE. Mr. Woodward was requested to draw out plans and specifications for the proposed sheds by that day week. CHEQUES. Several cheques were issued in payment of bills, and Town Clerk's salary. THE HIGHWAYS AND THE TRACTION ENGINE. Mr. Asa J. Evans called attention to the scarcity of material for the highways. The traction engine pounded whatever kind of stones that are placed on the roads into dust in no time. It was a pity that the proprietors were allowed to use it on our roads. Last week, in the superior court in London, it was decided that it was illegal to use traction engines on the roa<&, especially those with wheels like the one in tne neighbourhood. More damage had been done to the roads than they at present thought. NECESSARIES. The Surveyor having called attention to the ne- cessity of erecting public closets in the town, was requested to produce an estimate of the cost. Two cases of scarlet fever were reported to have occurred at the Strand, but the patients were re- covering. SUDDEN DEATH OF A TRAMP IN THE CARDIGAN COUNTY PRISON. On Saturday last, an inquest was held at the Visiting Justices' Room, in the Cardigan County Prison, before Mr. J. H. Evans, coroner, touching the death of Nicholas Henshaw, a native of Cam- ber, Cornwall, who had been sentenced to 14 days' hard labour, for begging at Aberystwyth. Capt Herbert Davies was foreman of the jury, and the following evidence taken Michael Elliott, sworn, said: I am governor of the county prison at Cardigan. On Monday last, the 18th inst, midday, I received two prisoners, brought by P.C. Jones, stationed at Aberayron, who were sentenced to 14 days' hard labour, the deceased being one of them. On admission the deceased complained of pain in the chest and the stomach; and as he told me his complaint was of three or four months' standing, and his appearance in no wise indicating danger, I did not send for the surgeon immediately. The surgeon is required to attend the prison twice a-week, oftener it necess- ary, and see every prisoner after admission. I in- form the surgeon, as a rule, on the morning imme- diately after admission of prisoners. From the hall the prisoner was taken to the bath-room, washed, clothed in prison dress, and treated as other pri- soners in every respect Prisoners of his class are allowed Ilb. of bread and 2 pints of oatmeal gruel daily. The dietary scale is sanctioned by the Home Secretary; but the surgeon is authorised to alter or increase the diet of any prisoner as he may think necessary. The labour given to the deceased was picking oakum, and he completed 1\ 'è. his task daily, and took his meals tel 10 o'clock on Tuesday morning the de brought into the office, and examined t geon in my presence. He complained 01 1> the stomach and chest to the surgeon as he did w me. After the examination, the surgeon made an entry in the official journal, which I now produce, as follows;—"19th February, Henshaw, Nicholas, free of disease, fit for hard labour." He was not put to hard labour, as we had none, but was given oakum to pick. On Wednesday morning deceased desired to see the surgeon, and the surgeon came, examined him in my presence, and made the fol- lowing entry:—"Feb. 20th, a visit; all well." De- ceased had, up to Thursday night, performed his task and managed his food, but he refused his sup- per on Thursday without assigning any reason for so doing. At 10.40 p.m. I heard a cell bell ring, and, in company of the chief warder, went to see what was the matter. On opening the deceased's cell we found him in a stooping posture, with his hands clasped across his stomach, as if suffering from a great pain. The surgeon was sent for im- mediately, and on arriving he proceeded to exam- ine the deceased, but failed to detect any symptoms to account for the pain which deceased said he suf- ferred from, but said that the pain had shifted since the previous day, and that he would see him the following morning. Nothing was prescrioed to deceased. 1 saw nothing in deceased appearance to induce me to think there was any danger, as prisoners often feign illness. Deceased then left for his cell, and whilst speaking to the surgeon I heard a thud in the hall; went to see what it was, and saw that deceased had fallen on his face on the floor, which accounts for the marks over the eye. He was lifted up, and the surgeon, myself, and the chief warder remained with him until he died, which would be about a quarter of an hour. No stimulants were administered, but the surgeon ap- plied his stethoscope to the heart. With the ex- ception of his breathing, which was short and hur- ried, the deceased appeared insensible from the moment he felL His age was 37 years. Joseph Morris, chief warder, corroborated the foregoing evidence. William Gill, a prisoner, who accompanied de- ceased to prison, said he had known deceased for about three weeks. He was continually complain- ing of pain in the stomach, and on Wednesday evening had told him that he wished to die, so as to be out of pain. William Davies, sworn, said: I am a duly quali- fied medical practitioner, and surgeon to the county prison. 1 carefully examined deceased on the 19th, and failed to find indication of organic disease, so as to justify me in altering his diet. He appeared to have been drinking very hard, as the symptoms were visible about the eyes, and his tongue was fouL I considered that a regular diet was all that was necessary to restore him to health. I made the entry in the journal for those reasons, and con- sidered him fit for hard labour. I next saw him on the 20th, but saw no reason to alter his treat- ment. On the night of the 21st I saw him, as des- cribed by Mr. Elliott. I did not think that he suffer much, as his features were tranquil at times. He breathed and spoke freely, and attributed the pain to some medicine he had had elsewhere. His pulse were regular, but his breath was offensive, and I attribute that to derangement of stomach. I did not prescribe for him, but intended doing so had I time enough to go to the surgery. I did not consider his case an urgent one. When he got out- side the office doof he dropped down as described by Mr. Elliott. On examining him I found him insensible—so insensible that if stimulants were ordered he could not swallow them. It would have been useless to apply any restorative treatment, and on that account I did not order any. I re. mained with him until he died. In my opinion the cause of death was apoplexy, accelerated by antheroma of the arteries. I cannot speak with any degree of certainty, and could not do so with- out a post mortem examination. In answer to a juryman, the witness said that he did not consider the prisoner's death had resul- ted from the pain he complained of, but from apo- plexy. The jury, after a long consultation, returned a verdict of Died from the visitation of God," and added that the surgeon, seeing his weak condi- tion, ought to have ordered deceased better diet, and prescribed for his complaint." The inquiry lasted over three hours.

To this fifth quarter of the globe," as an Irish writer has called it, the mother country sends many things its people do not want, and the consequen- ces too frequently are an overstocked market and depressed trade. From this category, we beg leave, however, to cxclude two articles—the two celebra* ted remedies of Professor Holloway. Throughout Australasia they are at a premium. The Pills and Ointment are considered the most profitable com- modities that can be taken to the mines, as their efficacy in the diseases common in the gold region is well known to every nugget-hunter, and they are therefore eagerly bought up at any price by those toilers after the mammon of unrighteousness For the bilious fevers, and all the disorders of the liver and bowels, which prevail on the auriferous soils of the interior, the Pills appear to be a positive, immediate, and invariable remedy. We have seen returned gold hunters from the "diggings," and their reports on this head are uniform. Nor is the testimony less conclusive in reference to the Oint- mentas a means of relievingrheumatism, neuralgia, healing the wounds, abrasions, contusions, &c, in- cident to a hard life in the wilderness. In short every one in "the bush" looks upon Holloway's two preparations as sufficient "medicine" for his outer and inner man. He knows, for he has win- tered with them and summered with them beyond the settlements, that they are his surest reliance in sickness at all seasons, and under all circumstan- ces. Almost every miner has some anecdote to relate of the cures they have performed. Limbs saved from mortification, ulcers preserved from gangrene, contracted joints relaxed, liver disease arrested, dysentery and diarrhoea cured—these are their trophies. In fact, they are among the good things, of which we cannot have too much, and although the imports at present are so large as al- most to be incredible, still the demand keeps in advance of the supply. Furnished with these rem- edies, the-miner and the settler have little need of medical adyiee,. for it seems beyond question that their curative effects cover the whole circle of dis- eases, and a large portion of the chapter of acci- dents. Of what use is success to the digger, if, when fortune is achieved, he dies beside hisnoard, and how many lives that were sacrificed in the early days of the gold discoveries, might have been saved by these inestimable preparations ? In Cali- fornia, we understand they are considered an in. dispensable item, and a most important one, of every miner's outfit, and we can only say, with a. knowledge of what they have been accomplishing throughout the world for the past 40 years, that to be without them is almost to De without the "staff of life."—The Traveller..
