LOCALNEWS. COUNTY COURT.—The usual monthly court for this district was held on Friday and Saturday, the 15th and 16th instant, before A. J. Johnes, Esq., Judge. There were about 140 plaints entered, the larger number of which was, as is generally the case, of an uninteresting nature, being lor goods sold and delivered. HANDSOME DONATIOK.-Pryse Pryse, Esq., of Gogerddan, has just sent the Vicar of Llanfihangel Geneu'r-glyn the handsome donation of :£5 for dis- tribution among the poor of his parish. Mr. Pryse does not seem to enjoy any happiness compared with that of relieving the wants of the poor of an exten- sive district surrounding his mansion, both tempo- rally and spiritually. This he is constantly in the habit of doing, but in the most unostentatious manner possible. ABERY8TWITH VOLUNTEERS.—It was stated in our last impression but one that the volunteers in- tended celebrating their fourth anniversary on the 31st instant. The corps was originally formed on the 30th January, 1860, and consequently the 30th instant is its right anniversary day bat when we made the announcement this year, the fact that the 31st falls on a Sunday was overlooked. The cele- bration will consequently take place on Friday, the 29th instant, on which day the corps will parade at the clock tower at half-past 3 o'clock for a short drill, and afterwards dine at the Royal Belle Vue Hotel at 6. FATAL ACClDENT.-On Tuesday last, a miner, of the name of Edward Mason, whilst at work in the Rheidol Mine, near this town, was killed by a quan- tity of earth falling upon him. An inquest was held on the body, and a verdict of Accidental death" returned. The deceased, who was 28 yrars of age, has left a wife and two children to lament his un- timely end. SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—We regret to state that a poor man, of the name of Hugh Hughes, a labourer, of Tafarnfagl, near this town, very nearly met his deaths ott Tuesday last, whilst in the act of digging the foundation of a house about to be built in Sheldon Square. It appears that whilst at work, with others, as above, a quantity of earth gave way, completely covering him, and would inevitably have suffocated him had it not been for the prompt exer- tions of those on the spot in extricating him from his perilous position. Doctor James, who was imme- diately sent for, was soon in attendance, and, after examining the sufferer, ordered him to be taken to the Infirmary. It was found that his leg was broken, and that he had sustained several bruises.
