Kosa of Appetite-x.oss of 8treDCtb-Loss of Healtti. i The marvellous effect of this fine medicine upon the system Is such as to immediately rally all the vital functions, the appetite is soon restored, a full flow of spirits quickly follows, the body becomes immensely invigorated with a certainty of restored health I fresh air and a little exercise are necessary to bring about a permanentstateof things. Holloway's Pills impart tone and energy to the most delicate constitutions, and in a manner as to astonish all who take them. By their exttaordinary virtue, they have obtained the largest sale of any medicine in the world Bead, Beart. Xiunfs, and Stomach. Look to the regularity of the functions of these foundations of vitality. Holloway's Pills restore to order the slightest departure from the proper action, and, therefore, may be considered as the regulatorsof the mainspring of human life. Apoplexy ean always be prevented if the projier action or the bowel* be attended lo, which this famous medicine never fails to accomplish. Disorders of the head and heart often terminate suddenly and fatally from obstructions in the system, which might generally be prevented by taking small and regular doses of this fine corrective. Female Disorders. No medicine can be so infallibly relied upon for overcoming all obstructions as these Pills. They never fail to restore a healthy action throughout tue system. The printed instructions will enable all to correct the first symptoms of disease, and avert many serious maladies. Holloway's Pills soon change the sickly and sallow complexion, thus renewing the bloom of health. To females centering into womanhood, or at the turn of life, these Pills will be found inv..iuable. They should be taken two or three times a week, as a safeguard against dropsy, headaches, palpitations of the heart, and all nervous affections, so distressing at certain periods. aiett Headache, Indigestion or fonl Stomach, and Disordered Liver. In such a deranged state of health the food is decomposed instead of being digested, and proves poisonous rather than nll- tritious. This derangement can be at once set right by a course o! these purifying and digestive Pills, which have acquired for themselves an imperishable fame for the mastery they have constantly exercised over the digestive organs. Holloway's Pills increase the appetite, regulate the liver, repress bilious- ness, healthily stimulate the kidneys and move the bowels in a more wholesome and natural manner than any other medicine. Disorders incidental to Children. The liver and stomach of children are, from many causesa often out of order, as they are allowed to eat many things that would disagree with their parents, hence their blood becomes impure, and liable to take any disease that is prevalent, and that in the worst form. One Pill, reduced to a powder, and put in a little water, given occasionally to children of twelve months old, and to those of three or four years, three Pills, and to others of seven years of age four Pills-will always make children look looming and healthy. Seventy-five out of every hundred do not reach the age of maturity. Holloway's Pills would not only preserve their health, but save the lives of thousands. Many people foolishly think that children only require a little medicine twice a year. Hollotoay's Pills are the best remedy known in the world for the following diseases:— Ague Femalelrregularities Scrofula, or Asthma Fevers of ail kinds King's Evil Bilious Complaints Fits gore Throats Blotches on the Skin Gout Stone and Grayel ftowet Complaints Headache SecondarySymptoms Colics Indigestion Tic-Doutoureut Constipation of the Inflammation Tumours Bowels Jaundice Ulcers Consumption Liver Complaints Veneteal Affections Debility Lumbago Worms of all kinds Dropsy Piles Weakness, from Dysentery Rheumatism whatever cause, Erysipelas Retention of Urine. &C., ate.

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.
COMMISSIONERS' MEETING. AN adjourned meeting of the commissioners was held at the Town-hall, on Tuesday last, when there were present—T. O. Morgan, Esq., Mayor (in the chair); Messrs. Robert Edward, Thomas Jones, John Roberts, Charles Hackney, John Davies, John Williams, John Hughes, Benjamin Hughes, William Julian, Richard Morris, David Williams, Hugh Hughes, John Jones Atwood, Edward Rowland, and John Jones. A number of bills due from the commissioners was examined, passed, and ordered to be paid. The following orders were made:— That Mr. Theodore Paul be requested to write to Liverpool and other places to ascertain the price and quality of the different water pipes used at such places. That the question as to the liability of the com- missioners to pay for the interior fittings of the public lamps be further adjourned until next Tuesday. That gully traps, with syphon, be procured for the use of the town, and that the same be placed where required for facilitating the emptying of water from surface channels to the public sewers. That application be made to Edward Jones, the late scavenger, for the payment of the sum of 45 for clearing his manure in the manure yard. That a further sum of £ 600, being the second instalment of the mortgage money, be called up, and that the clerk prepare the necessary mortgage from the commissioners. That the valuing committee be requested to ac- company the collector to value all houses and places in the tewn now almost being completed. The meeting was afterwards adjourned for a week. IN the Army General Orders, by His Excellency the Commander-in-Chief, which appeared in the Poona Observer, Dec. 8th, 1863, we find, amongst other officers who passed the required staff test examination in the native language, the name of Capt. R. W. Richardes, 10th Regiment, N. I.

HISTORICAL NOTES. DAFTDD AB GWILYM. Yn mhob gwlad y megir glew." AT Broginin, in the parish of Llanbadarn-fawr, Gwilym Gam, father of the celebrated bard Dafydd Ab Gwilym, resided. The family of Gwilym Gam descended from Bran, one of the fifteen tribes of North Wales. The bard's father fell in love with Ardydfyl, daughter of Gwilym Fychan, of Cryngae, near Newcastle-Emlyn. Owing to some old dispute between the two families, both sides would not con- sent to the marriage of Gwilym Gam and Ardydfyl. I bey were very much attached to each other; but she loved too well, but not wisely. She proved enciente. On discovering her condition, her father in a most cruel manner turned her from the house at midnight, in the depth of Winter, and at the same time sending an injunction to all his relations not to admit her into their houses. After this she became an outcast, and wandered from place to place. On hearing of her destitution her lover went in search of her, and found her out. They started towards Glamorgan, for the purpose of proceeding to Maesaleg, the resi- dence of his uncle, Ifor HaeL Whilst they were travelling at midnight during a severe storm of wind, hail, and snow, Dafydd Ab Gwilym was prematurely born under a hedge. They reached Ltandaff next morning, where they were married. But this union was of short duration. Ardydfyl died the next day, and was buried at Llandaff. The child was baptized on her coffin. The following stanzas were composed by Gwilym Gam over her grave. The translation is from the pen of the late Mr. Edward Williams, lolo Morgan wg:— In memory of Ardydfyl, whom I yet Shall join, fair, gentle form, on Olivet, God's Holy hill I an angel to my eyes, In choir of saints above the starry skies. Deprived of her, oh I what a waste of tears To my lorn soul this dreamy world appears; Placed on its brink to her long home I shed My gush of anguish for Ardydfyl dead." After paying the last farewell to his Ardydfyl, he took his infant son to Gwern-y-gleppa, in Maesaleg, where he resided until his father's death. After that event he and his son returned to Broginin. Gwilym Gam married the second time but this match was very displeasing to Dafydd. He hated his step-mother, and he determined to quit his father's house, and he returned to Gwern-y-gleppa, where he resided for a long time. On finding that Dafydd was imbned with poetic genius, his uncle, Llewellyn, son of Gwilym Fychan, took him under his care, and taught him the metres of vocal song, by which meaus he became a famous j • Llewellyn was killed by a band of Saxons, and Uaiydd was obliged to seek an asylum once more at Maesaleg. lie was appointed by Ifor Hael his steward and a tutor to his daughter; and in a short time it was discovered that the tutor and the pupil were enamoured to each other. She was sent to a nunnery in the Island of Anglesey Thither he followed her, and hired himself as a servant in an adjoining monastery; but his plans proved futile. He again returned to Maesaleg, where he was wel- comed by his patron. During his stay here he was elected Chief Bard of Glamorgan.—To be continued. JOHN ROWLANDS, ( Girnidus.) Dinas Pouns, Glamorgan.

A VIEW OF THE PRESENT STATE OF SHEEP FARMING IN CARDIGANSHIRE, WITH SOME HINTS FOR IMPROVEMENT. THE Cardiganshire hills are in general dry, though in some places there are considerable tracks of boggy land. They are however all covered with green eatable herbage over the tops or summits. The farms are very unequal in size, many of them being freeholds, but mostly let out to tenants at will, and rent from sixpence to one shilling per acre. Te- nant seldom have all the stock on the farm, but some neighbours will have a stock of sheep grazed for the half of the wool. It is a common calculation that the half of the wool should pay the landlord's rent and give the tenants profit, the proprietor of the stock having all the other part of produce for his risk and money sunk. The owners of such stock generally have some low-lying farm, where they take a part of it through winter, and send them up to the hills in summer. The tenant commonly takes in all that he can get from all quarters, cattle aDd horses, summer, at a stated price, and sheep at one shilling per head. The management of the stock is rather singular. Parties begin the year by gather- ing all the stock from the low country, and sometime in May cut the lambs. In June they begin the shearing and wash, the same way as is done in other countries. The shearing is a difficult task to the shepherds. The sheep of one hill are mostly all brought in at one time. The shepherds have no dogs that will turn a sheep; and the latter being remarkable for wildness, it is often difficult to get every man's sheep with his own mark, and every kind of one man's is put into separate marks. This requires a great deal of time; but it is seldom many mistakes happen. After shearing is over, there is little more attention paid to them until about Mich- aelmas, when all the wethers, turned of three years, are sold to the English butchers and graziers. The lambs are never weaned, nor any of them sold that are thought to live through winter. The old ewes are likewise all kept, however old, if they are only thought to live and brinff lambs. Thnco hf»rt»trvh t a from the low country are sent off as soon as the farmer has his stubbles cleared, or, as soon as it is thought they are better down than on the hills. There is no such thing as smearing, dipping, or pouring; but all the sheep are brought in, and get the winter mark. The rams selected for those ewes that stop on the mountains all winter are commonly of the strongest, coarsest kinds those that are taken to the low parts are commonly of the finest kinds. But, both on hill and in valley, they are allowed to tup the ewes at pleasure, which is generally in the month of October. There is then no more done but looking after them through winter. In this they are at a good deal of pains but in time of storm never think of providing anything for them-they may either live or die. In the very greatest snows they never get any hay, nor are driven to any low country for support; OR which account there are very serious losses, particularly among the lambs and the oldest of the ewes. In the course of a few good years, by keep- ing all the lambs and old ewes, the land becomes over-stocked then, when even a middling bad year comes, there are no lambs, and there is a great loss among the old sheep. They call this bad luck and such luck they are almost sure of every three or four years. They likewise shear the wool off the lambs in August-the very clothing that nature has pro- vided as a protection during winter. It is then no wonder that more rents cannot be given. If the farmers in the South of Scotland were to practise the same plan, they could not give more than one-third of the rent that they do under their present system. The management of the land is equally bad with the management of the sheep. The very wettest parts are never thought of being drained no artifi- cial shelter in the most exposed parts; no burning of dead stuff in the moors, nor any inclosing, everything allowed to continue in its natural state. The English or Scotch sheep farmer taking a sheep- walk in Cardiganshire, has considerable difficulties to overcome with the adjoining farmers. When a stranger is about to take to the farm, the hue and cry gets up with them all around, We'll eat him without salt," and they commence by getting all the horses, cattle, and sheep they can get in the neigh- bourhood to graze at so much per bead, and push them over the boundary line on to the stranger's, to eat his land up and hunger his stock out of the place. This is the plan generally tried to send a stranger out of Cardiganshire. The following simple but useful improvements are recommended. Stock the land light, say two sheep to three acres, at an average, but in high situations less. Keep no additional stock in summer, only what is bred on the land. Keep no ewes above 41 years old. however small the number may be on the land. Keep no more lambs than what will keep up the stock to the above number of two sheep to three acres. Instead of shearing the wool off the lambs, give them a good salve with Bigg's sheep dipping composition salve them in the ensuing spring also. Do not let the rams go to the ewes before the 22nd day of November. Salve or smear them for a trial, Try the sheep with hay in time of storm they will eat it in Wales as well as in other countries. Burn all the heath and dead grass that will burn in March and April. Carry off all the surface water by open drains. These improvements are simple, but useful, and will at the very first treble the disposable pro- duce of the farm; which is equal to trebling the value of the estate. » HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PiLM.—For bad legs, bad breasts, and scorbutic or scrofulous sores this is a genuine specific. The grateful and earnest testimony of thousands who have experienced their unrivalled power over these complaints, and who have been raised from prostrate helplessness and a condition loathsome to themselves and others, ren- ders it quite unnecessary to enlarge in this place upon its extraordinary virtues. The parts affected should be bathed with luke-warm water, and when the pores are thereby opened the Ointment should be rubbed in at least twice a day all round the com- plaining parts. It then penetrates to the seat of the disorder, and effects a thorough and permanent cure. These preparations are composed of rare balsams, as mud as they are efficacious. .<r.
THE MOTHER# GRIEF. BY THOMAS TREVETHAN. AND art thou gone and left me here to weep, Whilst thou art taking a long dreamless sleep ? Nought now to gaze on save thy lowly grave And the wild flowers that o'er thy last home wave. How hard it is from thee I love, to part. It wrings fresh anguish from this bleeding heart; None save a mother knows a mother's grief, Nor tears nor friendships give her heart relief. For there, my darling firstborn, art removed Far from the scenes where thou wert much beloved Nothing remains save memory's busy aid, Which paints thy infant form by pains decayed. Methought in years to come that thou wouldst be A branch whereon might rest a withering tree, A heart in which thy parents might rely, And in thy loving arms perchance to die. But He who rules the destiny of man, Whose very eye eternity can scan, Decreed thy life a short one here below, That thou earth's many cares might never know. Then why should I so wish thee back with me, Since thou from pains and toils art ever free • Nay, rather let roe strive to reach that home' Where we with God through endless years shall roam. Alas! Ptis hard to cry those bitter tears, And harder still to keep the heart from fears But I will go and kneel to God in prayer, And crave His heavenly aid thy loss to bear.
