DEATH OF MISS STOCKWOOD.—We have with regret to record the death on Thursday night in last week of Lillie, the eldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Stockwood, solicitor, and justices7 clerk, of Coederwen, Bridgend. Deceased had been for some time past suffering from a complication of diseases, and the greatest sympathy is felt on all hands towards her aged and respected father, as well as other members of the family. The interment took place at Holton Churchyard on Tuesday. Prior to taking the general bcsiness at the Bridgend Police-court on Saturday, the Rcy. C. R. Knight, as one of the oldest justices, 11nd a friend of Mr. Stockwood, s-ud the Bench ex- pressed to him the sympathy they felt for him in his recent trouble. He felt himself that these sad occurrences must occur, and they must only bear it in the fond recollections they had left behind them. •Such recollections, he was sure. Mr. Stockwood had and would feel in a more lonely home. Mr. Stockwood, completely broke down, briefly thanked them. The deceased^ had for some years been a very active person in Newcastle Sunday School and library, and acted for seme time as organist of Newcastle Church. DEATH OF OLD INHABITANTS.—Two old inhabi- tants of the town passed away recently in Mr. John Phillips, currier, late of Co v< bridge-road, and Mr. Ebenezer Davies, shoemaker, of Park-street. Both had reached a good age, and were equally known as highly respected. THE STORM.—The storm raged furiously over this place on Sunday last, accompanied by exceptionally heavy showers of rain. The river Ogrnore was greatly swollen, hut no great damage is reported in conse- qucnce of the wind, with the exception of a chimney blown down a.t Coity-ro-.d. A RUNA\vAY.—One day last week, while Mrs. Thomas, Twmpath Farm. Colwinstone, was driving into town, and when near the Coach and Horses public-house, the horse, attached to the trap, took fright, and went at a galloping pace through Nolton- street, breaking a shaft on the way. Keeping straight ahead Sergeant Rowe, who stood on the police-station door, rushed to the back of the trap, and by combined force and strategy, succeeded in arresting and stopping its progress when near Mr. E. Phillips' works, about 60 yards distant. Mrs. Thomas was then assisted out of the trap greatly frightened, but fortunately un- hurt.
