HEALTH FOR THE INVALID. MM HOLLOWAY'S PILLS. toss of Appetite-Loss of Stranirth-Loss of Health. The marvellous effect of this tine medicine upon the system is such as 10 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: fresh air and a little exercise are necessary to bring about a permanent state of things. Holloway's Pills impart tone and enemy to the most delicate constitutions, and in a manner as to astonish all who take them. By their extiaordinary virtue, they have obtained the largest sale of any medicine in the world Head, Heart, tunes, 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 regulators of the mainspring of human lite. Apoplexy can aiways be prevented if the proper action of the bowels be attended 10, 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 Piils. 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 fo-ind inv duable. 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. Sick Headache, Indigestion or foul Stomach, and Disordered Liver. In such a deranged state of health the food is decomposed instead of being digested, and proves poisonous rather than nu- tritious. This derangement can be at once set right by a course of thise 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 causeM often out of order, as they are allowed to eat many things that wøuld disagree with their parents, hence their ttood 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 hea thy. 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. Holloway's Pills are the best remedy known in the world for the following di.seases:- Ague Pemalelrregularities Scrofula, or Asthma Fevers of all kindsi King's Evil Bilious Complaints Fits Sore Throats Blotches on the Skin Gout Stone and Gravel Bowel Complaints Head-ache SecondarySymptoins Colics Indigestion Tic-Douloureux Constipation of the Inflammation Tumours Bowels Jaundice Ulcers Consumption f/iver Comp'aints Venereal Affections Debility I.utnbago Worms of all kinds Dropsy Piles Weakness, from Dysentery Rheumatism whatever cause, t-rysipelas J Retention of Urine &c.. &c.

ABERYSTWITH VOLUNTEERs.-The fourth anni- versary dinner of this corps was held on Friday, the 29th ult., at the Royal Belle Vue Hotel, in this town. A large number of volunteers and their guests sat down to a most recherche repast prepared in the style for which this first-class hotel is deservedly famed. Captain Richardes, of Bryneithin, presided, supported by Lieut. Morgan, (the mayor,) Ensign Jones, and T. R. Jones, Esq., Surgeon to the corps. The usual loyal toasts of the evening having been duly proposed and drank, the volunteers were pro- posed, coupled with the name of Sergeant-major Smith, to whose energy and untiring zeal in promot- ing the interest of the corps, all praise was due. In returning thanks, Sergeant-major Smith alluded to the present state of the corps as continuing both in numbers and efficiency up to the standard of last year and ho hoped it would long continue as effi- cient, and increase its muster both of effective and non-effective members, the purse of the latter mem- bers proving most serviceable in promoting the wel- fare of the corps. The health of the chairman was very warmly proposed and drank amidst loud cheers, and was most feelingly responded to by the worthy commandant, who dwelt at some length upon the great value the volunteers had proved to this country -the 175,000 volunteers—having shown to every European nation our readiness to protect our country in time of need. Many healths were proposed and duly responded to, including that of the new landlord of the Royal Belle Vue, to whom the best thanks of all present were due for the good dinner and capital wine set before them. The meeting was kept up till a late hour. Amongst those present we noticed— Capt. Richardes, Lieut. Morgan, Ensign Jones, Ser- geant-major Smith, Sergeant Careswell, Corporal Griffiths, Messrs. J. J. Atwood, Theodore Paul, C. M. Thomson, J. M. Davies, G. Cumberland, T. R. Jones, J. Leon, G. Morice, John Davies, Edward Davies, J. Pell, J. Miller, Rowe, Jenks, Boundy, Smith, Thomas, James, Randall, Ellis, Williams, Evans, &c., &c. NUPTIAL REJOICINGS.—On Wednesday last, the villages of Pontllanychaiarn, Figure Four, and Rhydyfelin, presented a very gay and animated appearance consequent upon the marriage of Mr. Hugh George Stephens with Miss Hughes, of Aber- llolwyn. Long before day-light cannons could be heard firing from all quarters; and by about 9 o'clock the sight in the different villages was most imposing — flags, with appropriate mottoes, were waving from the tops of houses and from windows in almost every dwelling, whilst gaily-decorated arches of evergreens spanned the roads in various directions. The ceremony, which was performed by the Rev. J. Davies, the Incumbent, assisted by the Rev. E Owen Phillips, Vicar of Aberystwith, took place at about 11 o'clock in the ancient church of Llanychaiarn, which building was crammed with the friends of the bride and bridegroom, anxious to witness the in- teresting ceremony. This being over, Mr. and Mrs. Stephens entered their carriage to return to Aber- llolwyn. But here the four beautiful greys which drew the vehicle were detatched, and a large party of "jolly tars" took the command; and after a pro- cession had been formed, which was headed by the band of the Royal Cardigan Militia, and a party of sailors carrying gaily-dressed models of full-rigged ships, the whole proceeded towards the mansion, the band playing "'Hasten to the Wedding," My Love is but a Lassie yet," "Home, Sweet Home," and other such appropriate airs. During the day the ships in Aberystwith harbour presented a very lively spectacle, almost every ship having her colours dis- played, as a compliment to the bridegroom (who is himself of the maritime profession) and his amiable bride; besides which many private houses in the town were decorated with flags, &c., suitable to the occasion. In the evening fireworks were let off in the neighbourhood of Aberllolwyn, and on the sur- rounding hills large bonfires were seen illumining the whole district. In short so much was done as could not fail to shew that the happy couple were unmis- takeably favorities with the inhabitants of the neigh- bourhood. We almost forgot to state that the brides maids, who were most elegantly and tastefully dressed, were—Miss Williams, Rhoscellan-fawr; Miss Victoria Davies, Antaron Miss Davies, Pen- pompren; Miss Lizzie Davies, Tanybwlch; Miss Giibertson, Aberystwith; and Miss Paul, Llanba- darn. At the dejeuner we noticed the Earl and Coun- tess of Lisburne, and Lady Jones Vaughan Col. Powell, M.P. ;»Mr. and Mrs. Parry, of Glanpaith Mr. and Mrs. Davies, of Penpompren Capt. and Mrs. Phelp; Mrs. Stephens, and Mr. Ernest Ste- phens Mr. and Mrs. Gilbertson; Mr. and Mrs. Paul; Revds. J. Davies, E. O. Phillips, and James Lewis ;Messrs.V.Davies, H. Richardes, W. Powell, J. Parry, D.Williams, R. Gilbertson, D. Hotckin, &c.,&c.
PETTY SESSIONS. ON Tuesday, at the Town-hall, before TnoMAS OWEN MORGAN, Esq., mayor.-John Jones, carrier," Llanidloes, was brought up and charged, at the instance of P. C. Elias Elias, with having left his wagon on a.certain highway road leading from Llan- idloes to this town, namely, at Llangurig, to the danger of the lives of persons travelling upon such highway. The defendant acknowledged the offence, but stated it could not have been avoided, inasmuch as an accident had occurred. The bench therefore dismissed the summons, upon payment of costs, which amounted to thirteen shillings.—Subsequently in the day several parties were summoned before Thomos O. Morgan, Esq., and John Davies, Esq., each charged with non-payment of poor rates, in each of which instances orders were issued for dis- trainment forthwith.
TOWN COUNCIL. THE usual quarterly meeting of the members of the corporation took place on Monday last, at the Town-hall, Thomas Owen Morgan, Esq., mayor, oc- cupying the chair. There being present, besides Aldermen Thomas Jones and John Roberts, sen, Councillors Richard Roberts, John Jones Atwood, John Rees, Richard Jones, John Davies, John Ro- berts, jun., and Robert Edward. An application was made on behalf of the congregation of Zion Chapel to have a grant for a site of a new English chapel. The selected spot asked for lies between the Town-hall and the Queen's Hotel. It is intended to erect the chapel in such a style and architecture as to be an ornament to the town. It is contemplated to make it spacious enough to have comfortable sittings for 500, at an estimated expence of between JE 1,200 and £ 1,500. The application was favorably entertained and after a few remarks it was decided to postpone the subject until the plans will be received from the architect. The other business which was to have been considered by the meeting was, the propriety of extending the lease of a piece of land, situated in Trefechan, to Mr. G. G. Williams, who now holds it in right as heir to Mr. M. D. Wil- liams. But as a map of the slang'ordered to be made by a surveyor was not ready, it was resolved to adjourn the whole matter until the next meeting.
COMMISSIONERS' MEETING. THE improvement commissioners of this town held their usual general monthly meeting on Tuesday last, at the Town-hall, when there were present- Thomas Owen Morgan, Esq., mayor, in the chair Messrs. Hugh Hughes, John Jones Atwood, John Roberts, jun., Thomas Jones, John Davies, Robert Edward, John Rees, Benjamin Hughes, John Jones, Great Dark-gate-street, John Williams, 43, Terrace, Charles Hackney, David Williams, Edward Row- land, Richard Morris, John Jones, Bridge-street, and John Williams, coal merchant. After examination, the treasurer was ordered to pay the following bills:—Elias Pugh, for labour on the south road, £1 10s.; Lewis Davies, for work done, £ 2 Is. 2d Benjamin Hughes, for goods sup- plied, £2 lls. 7d William Rice, for casual labourers employed, £ 819s. 6d.; Thomas Smith.Llanbadarn, on account of the sewage works now by him carried on on Morfa Mawr, k84 7s. 6d.; Henry Michael, part of contract for making sewer through Terrace Road, £ 66 3s. Id. Upon the application of the clerk, the collector was authorised to commence collecting the second moiety of the improvement rate. The deed of mortgage, by which Mr. David Wil- liams advances to the commissioners the sum of £ 400, was produced, perused, and signed. The clerk stated that at the last meeting complaints had been made that some of the trees on the North Parade were dead, and that others had been by evil-dis- posed persons injured; and it had been proposed that those so injured should be re-placed under the su- perintendence of a competent person, a gentleman in the neighbourhood having kindly promised to give the new trees gratis. It was after a short discussion resolved that it be left to Mr. Atwood and the clerk to see the trees re-placed, and that they be empowered to go to any reasonable expense in having the job done.

TRE'RDDOL PETTY SESSIONS. THE usual petty sessions for the division of Upper Geneu'r-glyn were held on Thursday last, at the Halfway Inn, Tre'rddol, before Capt. Pryse, M. P., Pryse Pryse, Esq., and John G. W. Bonsall, Esq., when the following cases came on for hearing. Trespass in search of Garne.-Evan Evans, of Tybach, Nantgarw; Humphrey James, ofTypridd; Evan Morgan, of Rhydfach; and Edward Evans, of Rhydfach, all in the township of Ceulanmaesmor, were summoned on the information of John Row- lands, of W^unbwll, 'Scyborycoed, under-game- keeper, for having on the 7th of January last, at Moel-llyn, near Talybont, unlawfully searched for game. Thedefendants, Evan Evans and Humphrey James, appeared, when it was proved, that they, in company with the other defendants, three of whom were armed with guns, and having a dog with them, were seen to beat for game. The defendants, who appeared, were nnedjE2 each and costs; and in default ot payment to be committed to Cardigan araot for one month. The fines and costs were thereupon paid. Warrants to apprehend the other defendants were ordered to be issued. The like Offence.- Beijamin Jones, of Bowstreet, Blacksmith, and John Roberts, of Nantcollen-fach, were summoned, on the information of John Mor- ris Jones, gamekeeper, for having on the 30th day of January last, on the lands of Nanteollen-fach, Clarach, unlawfully searched for game. It was proved that the defendants, on the day stated, were seen beating the gorse, and having with them a greyhound and several other dogs. The defendants appeared, and were fined £1 each, and in default one month's imprisonment at Cardigan gaol. The like Offence.-Mr. Andrew Robert, late of this town, was summoned for having on the 16th nltiino, at Rhydmeirionydd, Clarach, unlawfully searched for game. The service of the summons was proved; but the defendant not appearing, a warrant to apprehend was ordered to be issued. Larceny.— Robert Banks, a railway labourer, was brought up in custody of P. C. David Evans, under a warrant of remand, charged with having on the 7th ultimo, at Llanerch, near Tre'rddol, feloniously stolen a shirt and psir of stockings, the property of John Lewis, which the prosecutor's wife had put out on that day to dry on a fence near their cottage. After the evidence had been taken the prisoner was asked whether he consented to the magistrates' dis- posing of the case, or that it should be sent for trial by a jury, when the prisoner elected to be tried by the magistrates; and on being required to plead to the charge, he stated he was guilty. Sentenced to one month's imprisonment at Cardigan bouse of correction, with hard labour. Affiliation Cases.—Jane Davies v. Evan Holt, of Machynlleth. This was an adjourned case; and after a lengthy hearing, and the examining of several witnesses on both sides, the case was dis- missed. The magistrates intimated their readiness to grant the applicant a fresh summons for another hearing, if she was able to procure fresh evidence, which she promised to do. Mr. E. H Edwards, of Aberdovey, appeared for defendant.—Jane Samuel v. Richard James, of Talybont. After hearing se- veral witnesses on each side, an order was made for the usual allowance. Mr. J. M. Davies, counsel for defendant. Manslaughter.—Charles Edward Hqughton, a rail- way labourer, was brought up in custody of P.C. Evan Evans, charged with the manslaughter of another railway labourer, named John Smith. It appeared from the evidence of the witnesses who were examined, that on Saturday last the deceased and the accused, with other labourers, were drinking together at the Three Horse-Shoe public house, at Rhydy- penau, when a quarrel took place between the de- ceased and the accused. They agreed to go out to the turnpike road in-front of the house, where they fonght for half an hour. The deceased afterwards returned ftfrthe public house, and was observed to throw up blood. The deceased died on Tuesday night last. The magistrates remanded the prisoner, and ordered the case to be fully heard in this town on Monday next, and that in the mean time a post- mortem examination on the body should take place.
ABERAYRON.—A Birmingham butcher, who visited this place the other day, purchased in the neighbourhood no less than 7 bnlls. It is supposed he had the contract of supplying a barracks, or, perhaps, a Union Workhouse, with some beef. LAMPETER.—PETTY SESSIONS were held on the 27th ult., before W. JONES, Esq., Glandenys, and W. JqNES, Esq., Llwynygroes.—Michael Mc'Glynn ap- peared on bail, having been apprehended by Sergeant Crow, at Llandilo, charged with having deserted his wife and family, and leaving the same chargeahle to the parish of Lampeter. Defendant stated that he did not abscond, that it was well known that he was at Llandilo, and that he was bound to go somewhere, as he could not get lodgings at Lampeter, nor could he get any woman to wash his linen, owing to the bad conduct of his wife; and even when he was living with her, he had to do the domestic work himself, and had been hunted by her several times in fact- he was afraid to live with her. He would have lett a long time ago had it not been for the boy whom she kept at home to run about the street, instead of sending him to school. Ordered to pay Is. per week and £ 1 17s., including costs. Paid £ I, and was al- lowed a month to pay the balance.—Joseph Sturdy charged Thomas Jenkins, Glannant, with having been in search for game on the land of Cwmmynach, the rights of sporting of J. B. Harford, Esq., on the II th ult. Defendant admitted the charge, and begged of the bench to act leniently towards him, promising that he would never touch the gun again. He being an old offender was fined £ 2 and costs in default to be imprisoned for two months, with hard labour The same complainant also summoned Lewis Hughes, Thomas Davies, and David Davies, for having been in search for game, on the 25th December, on the lands of Peterwell. Charge withdrawn, on the de- fendants paying 3s. 6d. costs.—Samuel Evans, LItth- rhystid, road surveyor, was summoned at the instance of Mr. John Jones, Maesycrugiau, for neglecting to repair a certain highway at or near Lianfair-Clyd- ogau.

Powell, M.P., but who had assigned the right of sporting to J. B. Har- ford, Esq. The prisoner was bound over, with sureties in the sum of A10 each, to appear at the next petty sessions.
REPORT ON BRONFLOYD UNITED MINES, BY CAPTAIN MATTHEW FRANCIS. 21st January, 1864. THIS mine is the nearest mine to the shipping port of Aberystwith, being situate about six miles to the east of it, at the western end of a valley containing several rich mines. The lode embedded in clay slate and slightly underlying to the north is of extraordi- nary dimensions, appearing to average a width of 90 feet, and parts of it are found crystalized with metal in belts from I inch to 2 feet wide, and 30 fathoms long for 54 feet wide:—the average width of the workings yet being about 6 fathoms. The ore-ground eventually will have to be opened for a much greater breadth than this, probably for 10 fathoms, and possibly the lode in depth will be found to yield ore for the whole width, or 30 yards. No exaggeration will be made in estimating the yield of this great vein at g 100 per lineal fathom, as the ground where excavated for considerable lengths of 50 yards together, has yielded as much as £110 per lineal fathom, or JE19 per cubic fathom, constituting one of the most valuable lead lodes in the kingdom; the management of which, both with regard to the planning of the tutwork, or the excavation of its ores, requires great consideration and skill. For a considerable time the energies of the com- pany were confined to opening the south lode, but up to this time the vein, although yielding some ore, has proved unprofitable. More recently they have directed their attention to the north lodes which were cross-cut at the adit level, and have proved very productive. The Cornish principle of working has been ad- hered to, by engine shaft and 10 fathom levels, The mine is furnished with an excellent field of water power. The last sump was aonk a depth of 12 fathoms, and, for future working, levels at in- tervals of 12 fathoms (at which rate per annum the shaft can be sunk) would afford one fathom of height for the length of the ore ground, as the pro- duce of the mine for every month. This system seems to lie the most effectual and economical mode of working that can be adopted. The deposits or formations of ore yet discovered appear to be two; —one opposite the engine shaft, about 16 fathoms long; and the other from 40 to 70 fathoms west of the engine shaft; the line of the ore ground being 30 N- of E. there is apparently a distance of 30 fathoms between them, but possibly ore may be found in the intermediate ground; if not, there can be tittle doubt but that the two deposits will be joined together, and form one in the deeper sections of the mine. The eastward course of the ore has proved very productive, and has been worked away to the 40; but stands whole below that level. The present returns are obtained from the western course of ore which is stoped away on an average for 12 yards wide, and from 25 to 30 fathoms long and as the ore is taken away, its place is filled with refuse from the upper parts of the mine. I have considered w hether by a system of arches and pillars the ground could be worked more economically or effectually, but my estimates leave a balance in favour of the present process. The raising of the ore, inclusive of the necessary tutwork expenditure for shafts and levels, costs about £ 4 2s. per fathom. The dress- ing, usually a most expensive item, from the excellency of the machinery in this mine, is done at the very moderate rate (considering the nature of the ore) ot about 15s. per ton. The machinery and materials cost abuut £1 per ton and from this favourable rate of working', instead of realizing one- fourth or one-third of gross ore money, (which is generally considered a fair profit,) the company receives nearly one half of it in dividends. The system adopted in carrying out the heaviest operations of the mine, the shafts and levels, com- pares most favourably with thnt of some of the largest and best mines in the country. For example, the driving of the 52 fathoms level west has been let on a contract from the shaft to tne winze in the western ore ground, a distance of 60 fathoms, for £ 300; and I venture to assert that had this been let in short pieces or limits, as is usual in the mines here, it would have cost the company 30 per cent higher. I also approve of the line chosen for this level, and, from an examination of the end of it yesterday, I think it has I eached the wall of the lode. After cross-cutting the eastern ore ground, I think this level should be continued eastward as a level of trial; it is also at a good depth for trial of the western forefield of the mine, and I advise its continuation in that direction. There appears no necessity for immediately sink- ing the engine shaft. Of the western ore ground there is in reserve, according to my calculations, upwards of £I6.000 worth of ore above the 40. From the 40 to the 52 there is 1800 tons, or £ 24,000 worth of ore. I estimate the value of the eastern ore ground, from the 40 to the 52, at jE12,000, con- sequently, if I am correct, there must be in your mine .£50,000 worth of ore above the point already drained by the machinery, enough to last for two years, after your levels are sufficiently extended, to allow ofyour returning 150 tons per month. It is wise that you should husband some of the ores in your upper levels to meet the contingences to which mining is subject—frost, breakages, &c., in order to secure a fund to ensure the regularities of your samplings. To this end I think it would answer every purpose if you commenced to sink your engine shaft, for say a 65 fathoms level, in April next. I have heard hints in this country about the lasting qualities of your mine and it is a serious enquiry whether you have an ephemeral concern, or a well established property. Rumours have been always afloat affecting the permanency of mining property; and it is a pleasant thing to witness false prophecy stultifying itself, as was the case some time ago at Dolcoath, and affording evidence of the great depth to which the lodes are productive on the slate rock. The mines in Mexico are in analogy; these great lodes are of immense width, and, although worked to the depth of 400 fathoms, their produce has not been exhausted. It may also be added that the largest and richest lodes around you continue with unabated produce to the greatest depth to which they have been wrought, and I cannot sup- pose the ore ground of your vein will be worked out for generations to come. Much attention has been paid to your ore floor- ings, which are furnished with powerful and excel- lent machinery, and are being enclosed with a high wall affording shelter and safety for the people and the ore. On a future occasion when the dividends are increased, I shall be glad to have an opportunity of complimenting the company on the completeness and accommodation of their offices for the use of agents and shareholders. The main thing, how- ever, has not been neglected, the floorings are filled with good ore in every stage of dressing, and a good ore bin has just been completed; and I congratu- late you on the perseverance which alone has brought about an example of extensive and success- ful mining, just at the epoch at which railroads are introduced into this part of the country, and which are no doubt destined to do great good to Cardi- ganshire. (Signed) MATTHEW FRANCIS. To J. B. Balcombe, Esq. The annual general meeting of shareholders was held at the company's office, Moorgate-street, on Wednesday,— Mr. T. Miers in the chair. The managing director (Mr. Balcombe) read the notice convening the meeting. A statement of accounts was presented, from which the following is condensed:— X s. d. £ t. d.

Fever, diarrhoea, and even cholera, are too often the penal- ties of such neglect. It should be everywhere known that Holloway's Pills effectually prevent these disas- trous consequences. This purifying medicine should be taken at once, to stem the formidable symptoms, or the opportunity of doing so may be lost for ever, and a few days' delay even may be fatal. Each suc- ceeding dose gradually regulates the stomach, liver, and bowels. When the weather is sultry, the system weakened, and malaria abundant, the digestion and its organs should be kept in order by treatment so simple, yet so productive of comfort, security, and strength.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE ABERYSTWITH OBSERVES. SIR,—In your paper of last week, Mr. Edward Jones disclaims all connection with the survey of the drain now in progress, and accuses me of mix- ing up his name in the matter. I respectfully apologise to Mr. Jones for making use of his name. What I stated was, that the calculation had been made by him as for the data for the said calculation, I had been supplied with them by the contractor, who submitted for my inspection the very level furnished by Mr. Paul, the engineer. I am glad that these calculations, and those of Mr. Jennings, exactly agree. And is it not an undeniable fact, well known to the persons employed at the drain, that since my exposure of the error in the fall, a modification has been since made ? Has not the level been altered in censequence ? I here warn my fellow com- missioners not to proceed any further and lavish thousands of pounds of the rate-payers' money to no purpose, before submitting the matter to the survey of some disinterested, qualified, and experienced sanitary engineer. My only motive in meddling with the m, is, to prevent a flagrant waste of money, remain, Sir, yours obediently, B. HUGHES.
