TOWN COUNCIL. f* ASpfiiui Meitngoftbis tody was In Id :it the COUM.I Chaa!>0^ Frnif-y last f> t'ppurpis- ri.nstilrnrg it), propriety "I nr |ioii-t;ng two New Fairs. to bf lield at Haver: lordwej.! in th. iri' nths of February and N' veoiber yearly. A > to receive and take into considera'ion the report ol. th* F in- nee Committe: The foMnwirg members were presert: Messrs William Own, Maynr, William Re's. and O. R. Dayi-s:. Aldermen. Joseph Marychurch,'Alfred Beyn.m, John Harvey, James; Jenkins, H. P. Gocde, and W. Davies, Councillor*. The Town Clerk having read the notice convening the' meeting, The Mayor said two cuttle fairs were held in February ami Novembrt* yea.rlv, in the village of Camrose, some four or five miles from this town, which was a very inconvenient place fox that purpose..It wall the. ollly place in the neigh- bourhood for the disposal of CHltl.< in the autumn. He thought it would e desirable if these fairs were held at Ha- ,v." fordwest instead of Camrose, where there was no accom jiudation whatcwi, and it was situated very much out of the way' of the farmers from the Hundred of Roose. Of course they (the Council) had no control ov^r Camrose fairs, but Mr Bowen who was the principal landowner in the neigh- bourhood, had mentioned that their removal would he desire- able. and he promised to bring the subject under the notice of the Council. Mr Guode observed, that it was not in their power to Supersede the Camrose lairs; all they could do, if it was thought desirable, was 10 announce that the fairs would lie "held at Haverfordwest on the same day. Air. Marychurch said, it the people in that locality, and persons having property there were consulted, they would have some objections to make against the alteration. Mr Haney enquired if Camrose fairs were of importance ? Mr Beynon said it was a? a mere local mart, and confined to transactions between farmers of the neighbourhood. Mr Marychurch disagreed wir It the statemert of Mr Bpv- toon. It was'n his opillion a ftir of importance, where (at cattle and beasts for feeding were bought and Sold. It was attended by farmers from Roost-, and dealers attended. Mr Harvey asked how would these fairs effect the monthly cattle markets, for persons having fat cattle would bring to the fairs* Mr Goode said the monthly markets were not held when these fairs occurred. Mr Aid. Davies said the two new fairs which he had taken the trouble to get appointed at the request, and on therequi- lition of 42 dealers and other individuals, bat it appears that only one person had suggested the establishment ot two ad- ditional fairs at Haverfordwest. He hud heard that Mr Bowen wished the fairs to be removed from Camrose to Haverfordwcst, bnt without any disrespect to Mr Bowen, did not see why they should do so to please one individual, Whilst it might be that other persons in the neighbourhood entertained great objections to their removil. The proper course would be for the parties desirous of I he change topre- sant a memorial to that effect, and then it would come before them in a tangible form. The Mayor said the tendency was to draw the fairs near to theRaitwaystations. There was a total want of accommo- dation at Camrose? Mr. Beynon inquired how the removal of the fairs would injure Camrose ? Mr. Aid. Dawies. How would it benefit Haverlordwrst ? Mr Goode said, that persons living in the neighbourhood of the fair derived an advantage from selling beer and other- wise, and the property washrnented. H efelt this in regard to Maenclochg, where Lord Milford and Mr Le Hunte HI. tend erecting a suitablo Inn, so as to provide proper accom- modat"n tor persons attending the fairs, and so as to pre- sent the fairs being removed to Whitland Station, which tfcas threatened. The mostregutar and business-like way ofdeating with the matter of the Camrose fairs, was for the fanners in Roose and Dungleddy to memoralise them to re- movp. the fairs to Haverfordwest if they wished i'. 1\11' Aid Rees said he should oppose the motion nn prrsnnal ground, because he had always drove out to the fair and walked home. The Mayor: Because you could get no accommodatio/l for your horse. Mr Goode There are several persons possessing property in or tiear the village of Camrose, besides Mr. Bowen, who lDigh: get 3 little rJlote rent for their farms in consHiuencr bf th.-se fairs being held there Mr ltees screed with Mr Aid. Davies, that they sheuld not move in the matter except at the sequent of the Camrote people. Soine further conversation ensued, but no proposition being put to the meeting, the subjeçt was dropped. A very voluminous and elaborate report of the Fnance Committee was then read. Mr Aldei man Rees said the Council were deeply indebted to the Committee for the great labour and trouble It had taken in the investigation of the matters contained in the report just read, and to Mr Harvey in particular, for the skill displayed, and pairls taken by him in the preparation t1f that document, and moved that Ihe report be entered ou the minutes, and "I 0 that the thanks of the Council be preftned to dIe Committee. 1 he Mayorseconded the motion which was carried nem. con. Mr Harvey, in the ab ence ot the Chairman of the Com- mittee, acknowledged the compliment, and added Ihat the best recompense they could award the Committee would be to carry out their report. 1\1 I' Rees: Of course it is open to discussion. Mr Marychurch hoped the report would not be thrown aside. If it was to be discussed he suggested that it should be entered upon at once. He took that opportunity of expressing his personal th inks (as a member of the Com- mittee) to Mr Harvey, for the vety great trouble he had taken as their Secretary, in drawing up the report. Mr Alderman Davies, another member of the Committee, also expressed his thanks to Mr Harvey. Mr Marychurch urged that they should take up the report at once. Mr Alderman Rees suggested that it should be deferred for the pr..sent. Mr Alderman Davies said, liS the report was volumi- nous one, and could not be gon& into at once, would it not be belter to have it printed. It would be a valuable docu- ment fnr reference, and should be placed in the hands of evry Councillor. If it was merely entered on the books it would remain a dead letter. Mr Alderman Rees approved of the suggestion. It would be a few pounds well laid out. The Town Clerk was directed to ascertain what would be theexpensf, and report to next meeting. POORFIELD RACE COURSK.—Mr Alderman Rees said the Couucil were indebted to Mr Goode for a discovery. It appeared from their rental they were entitled to one- fourteenth only of the rents and profits of the race course, and the area within the ring; but that was wrong, inasmuch as under the Portfield I nclosure Act and the Commissioners' award, they were entitled with the Freemen's Trustees, according to the proportion in value of the several allot- ments made to them respectively, at the time ot allotment. Eighty five acres being allotted to the Corporation, and 250 to the Freemen. Their proportion would beascert lined through Mr Goode, who made the valuation of the common for the purpose of the inclosure, and instead of being one. fourteenth, the Corporation was entitled to one-third or so.
