OW Offices, 44, Marine Terrace, Aberystwith. A Cure to be had for a trifle. HOLLOWAY's OINTMENT. Gout, Rheumatism, Enlargements and stiff joints. A cure of these complaints is within the reach of the most humble, by fomenting the affected part with warm salt and water and rubbbing in Holloway's Ointment twice a day. Thou- sands have been cured who looked upon Gout and Rheumatism as incurable. The same treatment should be employed for the dispersion of chalk stones, and all painful enlargements or stiff- ness of the jonts; in such cases the Pill should be taken according to the printed directions. Bad Legs, Bad Breats, and Ulcerations of all kinds. The cure of ulcers has won for Holloway's Ointment an im- perishable reputation, as this healing Ointment will restore any case however bad to soundness. Mliny bad legs arise from im- prudences, happening several years before and almost forgotten; if, then, there be any doubt as to the origin of the sores, the patient should read carefully what is written on secondary symp- toms in the Book of Directions, as those sores never heal soundly until the system has undergone a thorough course of Holloway's gurifying Pills. Coughs, Colds, Sore Throats, Diphtheria, and Bronchitis. Any of the above ailments may be quicklynured if the Oint- ment be well and effectually rubbed into the neck and chest twice a day, leaving the parts constantly covered with a rag spread with the preparation; if this treatment be adopted promptly, in six hours it will effectually stop the most alarming symptoms. It must be evident that an outward iipplication ap- plied to the seat of the disorder must be more effectual than any that can be taken by the mouth. Holloway's Pills should be used according to the directions in order to subdue irritation, inflammation, or fever DROPSY. This fearful disease often makes its appearance between the ages of fjrty and fifty, and might generally be prevented by attending regularly to the proper action of the liver and stomach: these organs, at this time of life, have a great tendency to derangements, when asthma, dropsy, or disease of the heart often sets in. The blood requires frequent elimination which no other medicines can so effectually perform as these purifying Pills, as they purge gently, and act immediately upon the liver and stomach, and thus remove all obstructions which at the turning point of life always occur. This dangerous period should be closely watched; IWO doses a week of about six Pills will ward off all dangerous diseases. But in all cases of dropsy the Ointment is a wonderful and sovereign remedy, and must be effectually rubbed twice a day into the suffering parts. Youthful Indiscretion. How many poor women suffer from the indiscretion of hus- bands-which results in bad legs, swellings, loss of health, and rheumatistn-as they suppose-although it is nothing of the kind- but the effect of a certain disease taking hold of the sys- tern-no ordinary medicine can cure them, because the disease has sunk deeply into their constitution. Children often have sores, and bad heads, which do not heal, for the reason that contamination occurred before their birth. Let all who may suffer from such causes have recourse to the purifying and heal- ing properties of the-e wonderful Ointment and Pills, observing carefully what is said in the book of directions on Secondary Symptoms, which, if strictly followed, will effect any cure of the kind, but it will be a work of a little time. Both the Ointment and Pills should be used in the .following cases:- Bad Legs Cancers Scalds Bad Breasts Contracted and Sore Nipples Burns Stiff Joints Sore Throats Bunions Elephantiasis Skin Diseases Bite of Moschetoes Fistulas Scurvy and Sand-Flies (Jout Soie Heads Coco-bay Glandular Swell- Tumours Cliiego foot ings T'lcers Chilblains Lumbago Wounds Chapped Hands Piles Yaws Corns (softs) Rheumatism Sold at the Establishment of PROFESSOR HOLLOWAY, 244, Strand, (near Temple Bar,) London; and by all respectable Druggists and Dealers in Medicines throughout the civilized world, at the following prices Is. lid., 2s.

--== LOOAL NEWS. THE NEW WELSH CHURCH.—A number of those inhabitants who feel interested in the building of the new Welsh Church attended on Tuesday last at the vestry room, St. Michael's, to view the plans, and to arrange about advertising for contracts. The plans were approved and much admired. Subscribers are respectfully requested to pay their subscriptions to the account of the building into the National Pro- vincial Bank. APPOINTMENT OF SHERIFF.—John George Parry Hughes, Esquire, of Alltlwyd, has been appointed sheriff of this-county for the ensuing year, and has appointed Frederick Rowland Roberts, Esquire, of this town, to be his under sheriff. THE HARMONIC SOCIETy.-As will be seen in our advertising columns, a concert of secular music is to be given by the members of the above society on Monday evening next; and, judging from the programme issued, and the creditable manner in which their last concert was gone through, we anti- cipate a musical treat of no ordinary character. ASSEMBLY RooMS.—On Monday evening last, a party assuming the "swell" names of Castaglioni, Patti, &c., professed to give a "grand" concert of vocal and instrumental music at the above rooms. The room was well and fashionably attended; but most, if not all, were sadly disappointed in the grandeur" of the entertainment promised. WOODS AND FORESTS.—Considerable sensation has arisen with respect to the conduct of the Woods and Forests in the lordship of Croythin, and other lordships in the neighbourhood, in their mode of en- forcing the antiquated claims of the Crown to quit rents. After a lapse of some years, they have served notices on the farms within the lordship for trifling rents, which amount to two, three, or four pounds each, for twenty or twenty-five years in arrear; and if the occupier of the farm, who has never heard of such a claim, does not pay instantly, a hard and driving lawyer, with a bailiff, seizes the farmer's best cow, and sells it off-hand at any price to enforce the claim. If the claim be right, why did the Crown not enforce it at the time it became due ? or why should more favor be extended to the Crown than to others who sleep over their rights ? and why resort to such questionable agents ? These are queries of great importance and we should like to have them put to the department of Government, that acts so harshly and despotically by some independent member. BORTH.-Great preparations are being made al this place in anticipation of the great influx of visitors which is expected in the course of the ensuing sum- mer months. Since last season a number of lodging- houses have been built, and many others are now in course of building, whilst plots of ground have been taken on leases granted by Pryse Pryse, Esq., G. G. Williams, Esq., and other gentlemen owning pro- perty in the locality besides which a palatial hotel is now in course of erection, and which it is expected will be opened early in June. MANCHESTER AND MILFORD RAILWAY.—Several of the leading engineers of the day have expressed their grave doubts of the practicability of construct- ing a line of railway from Llangurig to Pontrhyd- fendigaid. It is said that the above company therefore intend abandoning that part of their line, as well as the branch from Devil's Bridge to this town, and in lieu thereof to extend their line, now being con- structed from Pencader to Pontrhydfendigaid, from the latter place to, and form a junction with the Welsh Coast line at Aberystwith, which, when com- plete, will form a direct line of communication between Manchester and Milford. LAMENTABLE FATAL ACCIDENT.-We regret to learn that an accident of a very lamentable nature took place near Ynyslas station, on Saturday last, which resulted in the death of a railway porter named John Williams, aged 40 years. An engine, having some trucks attached, was, it seems, driven from Penbryn to a siding, for the purpose of attach- ing some other lorries to it. The deceased went there, and assisted the guard in charge of the train in hooking the trucks together but in so doing he very incautiously, and expressly against the com- pany's instructions, went between a truck and lorry for the purpose of hooking them together. The truck being too far off, the deceased signalled the driver to move on slowly, which was done when all of a sudden a groan as of some one hurt was heard, and the engine was immediately backed. The guard and driver at once went to look for Williams, whom they saw jumping out from between the two wagons. He fell on his knee, and complained much of being hurt in the chest. A carriage was quickly obtained, and the engine attached, into which the deceased with little help walked; and they proceeded to Ynyslas station, and from there to Borth, at which latter place the unfortunate man arrived helpless. He was placed on a board, and on the way to that house which he had but a few hours previously left strong, hale, and hearty, he expired, leaving to mourn his untimely death a widow and three young children totally unprovided for. On Tuesday last, an inquest was held on view of the body, before J. M. Davies, Esq., coroner, and a respectable jury, having William Jones, Esq., Brynowen, as foreman when, after hearing the whole of the evidence ad- duced, a verdict of" Accidental Death" was returned, the jury expressing their strong disapprobation of the present system of attaching trucks together, more especially when attached to an engine. Mr. Edwards was present watching the case on behalf of the company. -«>
ALLEGED CHARGE OF MANSLAUGHTER. ON Monday last, Capt. Pryse, M. P., Thomas Owen Morgan, and Vaughan Davies, Esqrs., attend- ed at the town-hall, for the purpose of investigating a charge preferred against a railway labourer, named Charles Edward Houghton, for having on the 31st ultimo, at Rhydypenau, near this town, killetf one named John Jones, alias John Smith. Mr. Atwood appeared to watch the case on behalf of the accused. The following was the testimony given on behalf of the prosecution. Richard Roberts, being sworn, said, On the 30th ultimo I was at a public house called the Three Horse-Shoe, Rhydypenau, near this town there were there also the deceased and accused. They were drinking together; but somehow or other they quarrelled, and agreed to go out to the turnpike road to fight; which they did for half or three quarters of an hour. Both had stripped; and I saw blows given by each, which occasionally had such effect as to floor them. They had both been drinking, but not to any excess. Cross-examined by Mr. Atwood. The deceased was the youngest man of the two, the biggest man, the tallest, and the heaviest; there was such differ.. ence in size, weight, &c., that I was sorry to see accused fight against such odds. The deceased com- menced the quarrel by calling the accused a black- guard. They fought a fair battle, striking only with their fists, and not striking on the ground. I am of opinion that the accused got the worst of the affray. After the fight both again came into the public house. Catherine Felix being sworn, said, I am a servant at the public house at Rhydypenau. On Saturday, the 30th ult., the deceased, accused, and many others were in the house drinking. I saw the two men go out to fight, at the conclusion of which they returned into the bouse. The accused came to me to borrow a shirt, as his own was besmeared. The deceased sat by the fireside, where he threw up a quantity of blood, I should say about a pint. Cross-examined. Charley (the accused) came into the house with other people the same time as de- ceased. After the fight both the principals had some beer; I can't say they were drinking together, but they sat at the same table. The following morning they came in together, and bad a pint of beer each and they then appeared to be on friendly terms. Mr. Richard Morris being sworn, deposed I am a member of the Royal College of Surgeons, and a licentiate of the Apothecaries' Company of England, and am in practice at Aberystwith. On the fifth instant, by direction of the coroner, I made a post- mortem examination of the body of the deceased, which was lying at a farm house called Abercairo. The body I found in a highly decomposed state. The only bruises which could be externally detected were two under the eyes. The deceased was well developed, and was covered all over the body with a large qnantity of fat. I opened the head, and found the brain tolerably healthy. I then opened the chest and carefully examined the contents. There was some small amount of congestion on the lungs the heart was greatly diseased, apparently of long stand- ing. The liver was very much enlarged, so much so as to cause a great contraction of the inside of the chest. The only discoloration, besides what was caused by decomposition, was the bruises under the eyes. I heard what was stated by the witness Felix, as to the throwing up of blood by the deceased after the fight; and I should say it came from the lungs, which in its diseased state could be accelerated by the heart. My opinion is, judging from the state of his health, that the immediate cause of the deceased's death was disease of the heart, which might possibly have been accelerated by the excitement of the fight. It does not follow that an effusion of blood from the lungs is occasioned by the rupture of an artery and if such was the case, it would be very difficult to detect in the state the body was in when the exami- nation was made. The deceased might have lived for years if he kept himself calm and quiet; I mean without any excitement or great exertion. The heart was in a fatty state," as it is professionally called, and the structure of it was altogether in a very diseased condition. By Mr. Atwood. I saw no external injury, to which I could attribute the cause of death. The heart was in such a state that death might have ensued at any moment. Fast walking, or jumping off a hedge, would have the effect of accelerating his death so would excitement, such as a quarrel or a burst of passion, without a blow being struck. The deceased having worked hard for half-a-day on Tuesday, after the first shock received at the fight, would greatly increase the tendency of death. It is possible that the working on Tuesday might have caused death, assuming that nothing had taken place on Saturday. Mr. Jacob Roberts, Surgeon, was then called and his opinion asked upon the evidence given by Mr. Morris with which he said he entirely agreed. This was stated tobe the case for the prosecution. Whereupon Mr. Atwood called upon the prosecution to account for the deceased from Saturday to Monday. The coroner at his inquest had very properly done so and without which he submitted there was no case against the accused. If the magistrates should decide, which he hoped they would not, upon com- mitting the accused for trial upon the present evi- dence, he would not hesitate in saying that the pre- siding judge would be greatly dissatisfied if the prosecution could not bring proof of what the de- ceased had been up to from Saturday to Monday as it might be palpable to all that his death might have happened through something which could have oc- curred in the interim. The magistrates then cleared the room, and upon the public being re-admitted, the bench stated they had determined upon remanding the accused till Saturday, for the purpose of obtaining fresh evidence. Bail was however accepted, the prisoner in £50, and two suerties in £25 each. In conjunction with the above case, we should have stated that an inquest was held on the 5th instant on view of the body, at Rhydypenau, before J. Maurice Davies, Esq., coroner, and a jury, when evidence identical with the above, as well as with the testimony of a fellow lodger of the deceased, named John Brown, was given. The learned coroner fully ex- plained to the jury the law as applicable to cases of murder and manslaughter, as well as the duty to be pursued by them in cases of death arising from natural causes. The jury retired, and in the course of half-an-hour returned a verdict of Died by the Visitation of God."
t COMMISSIONERS' MEETING. K 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, Charles Hackney, John Williams, 43, Terrace, John Hughes, David Williams, Evan William Jones, Edward Rowland lhomas Jones, John Jones Atwood, and John Jones, Great Dark-gate Street. Application was made by the Aberystwith Foun- dry Company for the surveyor to form a water chan- nel outside the curb stones recently put down, at the expence of that company, along the length of the foundry buildings in Lewis Terrace. Also, for per- mission for the said company to place a level crossing of rails over the roadway in Lewis Terrace, in conti- nuation of a siding proposed to be extended from the railway into the northern shop of the said foundry. These applications were both granted; and, with respect to the former, the surveyor was ordered to put the work in hand, while with regard to the latter a payment of one shilling per annum was levied for the permissive right. Ordered that the bridge over the Mill-dam be at once repaired. That the following commissioners, viz:—Messrs. Thomas Jones, John Jones Atwood, John Davies, Harbour-master, John Roberts, and George Green, be requested to meet Mr. David Owen, of Bridge- street, in order to value the damage done by the commissioners' labourers to his field, near the Gas- works, in making the cutting there, and arrange about his claim accordingly. Adjourned for a fortnight.
OFFENCE UNDER THE GAME LAWS. AT the town-hall, on Monday last, before Capt Pryse, M.P., T. O. Morgan, and M L. Yaughan Davies, Esqrs. Mary Hughes, poultry dealer, living at Pontllanyehaiarn, near this town, appeared in answer to a summons in which she was charged with selling and disposing of game, she not being a person licensed so to do. P. C. Phillips being sworn, said, I am stationed at Borth. On the 4th instant, from information I had received, I proceeded to the railway station, where I saw a hamper, addressed to Joseph Smith, Birming- ham and having reason to believe it contained illegal game, I siezed it, and having opened it found it contained, besides a quantity of poultry, a brace of partridges, a woodcock, a snipe, five hares, and eight rabbits. I found that the hamper had been carried to the station by Morgan's wagon so I went to John Jenkins, the driver, and asked him who sent the basket; but he would not state who. John Jenkins was sworn, and said, I drive a wagon from Aberystwith to Borth. On the 4th inst., I had two hampers, addressed to Mr. Smith, Birmingham one of which was seized in Borth by the officer Phillips. I saw it opened, and saw the partridges taken out. I At not send or cause anyone to send a communication to any parties acquainting them of the seizure of the game. The hamper, which was detained, he had from Mary Hughes, the present defendant. P. S. Thomas stated that on Thursday evening, the defendant came to him and stated that a hamper of game, IwlfjKKoperty, had been seized at Borth; she said ti^^Bgoner had declined to give up her name as th^Pner of the game, and asked whether he could be forced to do so. The defendant acknowledged in a long rambling story that the game was her property. Whereupon she was fined 10s. for each head of game, which amounted to £ 4 10s., and costs, besides the forfeiture of the game. ♦
LLANILAR. PETTY SESSIONS.—The monthly petty sessions for this division were held on Friday last, at the Schoolroom, LIanilar, before G. W. Parry and James Davies, Esqrs. Tresspass in search for Game.-D. Rees and D. Wright, both of Llanfihangel-y-Croyddin village, were summoned, on the information of Edward Hull, of Glanystwith, Llanfibangel-y-Croyddin, game- keeper, for having on the 26th of December last, at Penlan-ucha, Llanfihangel-y-Croyddin, unlawfully searched for game. It was proved that the defen- dants on the day stated were seen beating for game on the aforesaid land, and having with them a ferret, nets, and dogs. Both defendants, who did not ap- pear, were fined E2 each, and costs. The like Offence.—Evan Evans, mason, and Evan Evans, miner, appeared to answer a charge preferred against them by W. Allon, gamekeeper to the Right Hon. the Earl ofLisburne, for having been trespass- ing in pursuit of game on the lands of Cwmmwydion- issa, the property of the Hon. G. L. Vaughan. One of the defendants admitted that he was on the land for the purpose of killing rabbits whilst the other stated that he, accidentally passing by, hadjoined the other in the fun. Evan Evans, the mason, further stated that he had a right to be on the ground, and called his father, who informed the magistrates that his employer, the Hon. G. L. Vaughan, had desired and authorized him to destroy all rabbits on Cwmmwyd- ion farm; and it was upon that authority he had sent his son on the lands. Allon denied that any such leave had been given by Mr. Vaughan; but, upon the application of the defendants, the case was adjourned for a month, so that in the mean time Mr. Vaughan should be communicated with as to whether he had given the asserted leave or not. A Schoolmaster's Frolics.- William Williams Pugh, a rustic-looking youth, charged one Mary Anne Wilson with having assaulted him by beating him with a'stick. Complainant said he was in school near Devil's Bridge, and whilst crossing the chapel field, in which there was a footpath, the defendant, without any provocation, came and beat him with a thick stick. In'proof of which his teacher was sworn and his appearance during the time he gave his testi- mony was just such as in one's eyes' mind could fancy a "schoolmaster abroad" to be. He said, My name is William Williams. I saw the defendant beat the poor little boy most dreadfully in the field; after which she ran up to me, and the little boys who were with me, most furiously, and pitched into us with her tongue most unmercifully. She came to me with her mouth salivating, worse than any cow, and said, How dare you to bring the boys to break down the hedge, and do damage to my field ?" We were all there upon a footpath which I have known to be public for 18 years. She is a dreadful woman. I only went with my pupils into her field to see if she would kill them, as the hard-hearted brute had pro- mised to do. She beat poor little William W. Pugh most cruelly, and she ought to be well punished for it. Defendant admitted having struck the boy but stated that she is subjected to dreadful annoyance by the schoolboys and their teacher; the latter of whom, to amuse himself, would march the boys out of school and dispatch them like a pack of harriers over her field. There truly was a footpath through it, but it was private. The schoolmaster, astounded, said, Private! I am 28 years of age and I remember that path public when I was about 10 years of age. Your worships, that Mary Anne Wilson is a dread- ful woman, and the whole neighbourhood is afraid of her. The bench dismissed the summons, with order- ing the defendant to pay the costs. The school- master then marched out his pupils whom he had brought with him, and, having decorated them with ribbons in the village as a token of triumph, took them home with the air of a conqueror. Deserting Service.-Richard Evans, of Ty-ucha, Llanilar, farmer, charged Mary Richards, of Cwm- clyd, Llanafan, with deserting her service from Ty- ucha aforesaid. Neither complainant nor defendant appeared. Case dismissed. Complainant ordered to pay the costs. David Jones, of Pontllanychaiarn, against Evan Herbert, of Aberystwith, for an assault, was settled out of court. An affiliation case was afterwards disposed of.
ALEXANDER II. THIS worthy son of an extraordinary father is among the most enlightened sovereigns of the world. He was called to the throne of llussia at a time when that empire was at war ^,lt" the W es- tern powers. He immediately commenced his labours for the welfare of his subjects,and ultimately restured his foreign relations to a state of peace. His next step was to ale the internal affairs of his dominion. The greatest benefit lie has conferred on his subjects is the abolition of serfdom a reform by which mil- lions have Deen raised in the scale. ot hie, and converted as it were into rational beings. The sert had nothing to live for, nothing to look forward to. Ineireeman has before him all that his ambition may tempt him to gain; Lis onward march is unob- structed by prejudice of caste or legal restriction. Another of his ae s, which will cause him to be gratefully remembered (at least by Holloway) as a benefactor to his country, is his Ukase recently issued, renewing and confirming that of his late father, Nicholas I., by which the sale of Holloway's Pills and Ointment is not only permitted, but also strongly encouraged, throughout the Russian empire. This tribute to a man of Holloway's ambi- tion, must have been very flattering to him but we strongly suspect that all this was not achieved without a good sprinkling of gold among certain functionaries; for to suppose that either Holloway's Pills or his Ointment were well known to the Em- peror would be ridiculous; but that a strong report as to the efficacy of his medicaments was, for cogent reasons, made in a high quarter, cannot be doubted. No matter, Holloway here gained his end, as he had done everywhere else; he broke down the harrier which banned his medicines from the frontiers of Russia, and to-day we and them sold in almost every town of that vast empire. We do not pretend to s»y what may be the merits of these medicines; but that the proprietor is one of the most enterprising men of the age, cannot be doubted, and what he gets he holds fast, too. Holloway has now got his Ointment introduced into many of the miliiary hospitals, as it was found to supersede most other remedies in the cure of old sores, wounds, and ulcers; but the Kussian soldier sufters much from cutaneous or skin diseases, and prefers this preparation to any other. The question is, does Holloway fee the doctors? That he pulls the strings, in some unaccountable manner, behind the scenes, there can be but little doubt. Holloway was in St. Petersburgh in 1853, and was invited by the Emperor Nicholas I., to be present at a grand military spectacle which took place twenty miles from that city.- Vermont £ a<jle.
< HISTORICAL NOTES. A WELSH ROYALIST. "Morris Llwyd, Lledwigan, The Thresher." It is said that during the civil war in the reign of the unfortunate monarch Charles the First, that Wales was more loyal and attached to the King than any part of the kingdom. During these unhappy dis- sentions a farmer of the name of Morris Llwvd or Morys Lloyd, residing at Lledwigan, near Llangefni, in tbe island of Anglesea, is known until this day by the "LIedwigan Thresher." He was a warm Royalist; he could not live with that constraint upon his soul, nor much less to flatter a govern- ment like that of Comwell. He could say in the words of Dryden- "Can I soothe tyranny ? Seem pleased to see my Royal Master murder'd, His Crown usurped, a distaff on the throne?" After the death of the king great disorder and misrule took place in North Wales. The Parlia- mentary, who had been for a long time sanctimo- niously exclaiming against the oppression of the Crown, became themselves the worst tyrants, and traversed the country, levying contributions upon the people, and using great cruelties upon the persons of wealthy people. One day a party of these regicides, 30 in number, came to Lledwigan and asked for Morys Lloyd. He was threshing in the barn at the time. They demanded his life. He replied without hesitation that he would not yield one without, the other, and having partially closed the door of his barn, attacked them with his flail as they successively attempted to enter. Eight of the ten of these fell in this contest which would have been longer time but unfortunately the thongs, which connected the flail, broke by accident or by the swords of his cowardly assailants. Poor Morys was at last compelled to succumb to superior num- ber and was killed, but, like Richard the Second, he determined to sell his life, as dearly as he oould. He was buried at Carreg Ceinwen Churchyard. There was a tombstone over his grave with the fol- lowing Welsh inscription:- "This is the spot in which Morys Lloyd was in- terred on the third day of October, 1647, after having fought a good fight for his king and his country. By his side was buried his rib, Jane Rees Owen, as a bed-fellow for him, on the fourth of November, 1653." Some of the parishioners converted this tomb- stone into a flagstone, with the inscription down- wards; but it was subsequently rescued by a gen- tleman who resided at Lledwigan, who placed it in the church. Unfortunately we have too many instances of the same kind in South Wales of tomb- stones being carried away and converted into hearthstones, thresh-holds, &c. Many a valuable memorandum has been lost through the careless- ness and parsimony of parish offieers. JOHN ROWLANDS, (Giraldus.) Dinas Powi8, Glamorgan.
SIMPLE RULES FOR PREVENTINO THE DISEASES OF SHEEP IN MOUNTAINOUS DISTRICTS.—The first is, a regular supply of healthy food at all seasons, as the nature of the situation of the sheep will admit, never at any time letting them feel hunger, nor driving them to the necessity of eating anything unhealthy; always having a sufficiency to eat, rather something to leave than have an empty belly. The second, by affording them shade in warm, and shelter in cold weather, in order to take away the extremes of both, and bring the climate to as equal a degree of temperature through the year as circumstances will admit. Nature as well as experience teaches men the salutary effects of this on their bodies, which will be the same among sheep. The third, gentle usage, never abusing them by dogging, over-driving, nor in any way over- heating, or taking the wind from them, nor strain- ing them by oppressive journies, but gently using them at all times. This cannot be too much attended to. The fourth, never to breed from near affinities, but let the cross be as distant of kin as can be, always keeping in view the properties you want to preserve amongst the flock; and the more distant the cross, the better for preserving the health and vigour of the animal. The fifth, to keep them as dry as possible. The most effectual method is, to smear them well with good materials, in September and October, to keep the rain out of the wool; and, if possible, to have the sheep dry when it is put on. The sixth, never to attempt profit but from wool, lambs, or cast sheep, neither milking nor folding for the sake of improving land, but giving them all possible ease and every chance of getting into condition. The seventh, to remove from the tiock every disordered sheep, particularly those of an infectious nature, to some place con- venient for applying any cure. The eighth bleeding, or medicine,or both,sometiime inOctober. These are the means to be used for carrying off inflammation. From the first ofOctober to the end of December is the most common time for young sheep to be at- tacked with inflammation. The most convenient time to do this is, when they are salved. The ninth, to breed from the healthiest and strongest in con- stitution in the flock. Whatever good properties a sheep may have, if it is delicate in constitution, it is unfit to breed from, but ought immediately to be fed or sold off. This ought to be particularly attended to in the male. The tenth, surface drain the land on which the sheep graze. It will prevent a great many of the diseases sheep are liable to, and effec- tually prevent the disease of rot; and it wiil afford a dry bed at all times. If these, with the shepherd's care and attention, do not prevent all the diseases in sheep, it will in some degree prevent a great number of them. One-third of the sheep on the mountains of Cardiganshire annually die from the effects of hunger and bare pastures during the winter.
