BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH! PEMBROKESHIRE HERALD OFFICE, HAVERFORDWEST, FRIDAY, JUXE 15TH, 4 A.M. THE W A R. Prince Gortschakoff expects that the French loss up to the 8th of June, after the second day's attack, was 2500 killed and wounded, and the Russians made 275 men and 7 officers prisoners, and took two French cannon. The Sebastopol Army Inquiry Committee met yester- lay, and it is supposed that the report will be ready :o-day. A letter from Kertch, dated May 28th, states that the roal captured there has been sold by auction, and has produced a snm of £100,000 sterling, which is to be divided among the troops. Lord Panmure has received a nominal return of officers bounded between the 4th and the 8th instant. The loss of the English, on the 7th and 8th, amounted ,o 122 non-commissioned officers drummers and privates, villed 510 wounded; and 15 missirig.
HOUSE OF LORDS.—YESTERDAY. The House met at 5 o'clock. The Earl of Shrewsbury's Bill for limiting the hours )f labour for needle-women was, after some discussion, referred to a select committee. The bills on the table idvanced a stage, and the House adjourned at G p.m. 11
HOUSE OF COMMONS.—YESTERDAY. At the morning sitting the House went into Committee m the Education (Scotland) Bill. A lengthened debate msued, and several divisions took place on different causes ultimately the Chairman was ordered to report progress, and the House adjourned to 6 o'clock. The Victoria Government Bill was read a second time ifter considerable discussion, as was also the New South Wales Bill. The House adjourned at 1.40 p.m.
MISCELLANEOUS. NEW MEN. —Every great national agitation we have witnessed has introduced a new class of members—more or less numerous, to the Legislature; every popular de- luge (to borrow a figure of speech from Prince Metter- nich and Lord Maidstone) has deposited a new stratum of legislators in Parliament. The struggle for Catholic Emancipation gave us the Sheils and O'Connells. The struggle for Parliaiiientary Reform gave us the Attwoods, Scholfieds, Brothertons, and Horsmans. The Anti-Corn- Law agitation gave us the Cobdens, Brights, Kershaws, and Browns. The movement for Administrative Reform will in its turn train new members for the Legislature, and supply them with an opportunity of winning that public confidence which can alone open for them the doors of the House of Commons.—Daily$~ev>s. m There is a great competition among the leaders of the Bar for the appointments vacated by Mr. Phinti, the Second Secretary to the Admiralty, viz.:—Counsel to the Admiralty ('), Judge Advocate of the Fleet (11). Recorder of Devonport (! !!), Counsel to Post-office on Western Circuit (! !), and Counsel to the Royal Forests in Hampshire ("). The first appointment is worth zC500 per annum. Since his acceptance of permanent office, Mr. Phinn has "dis-barred" himself, and is no longer a member of the legal profession. REFUSAL OF THE GOVERNORS OF CANADA TO SANC- TION THE MAINE LIQUOR LAW.—The home government has received advices from the government of the province of Canada, announcing that the Go"ernor General has refused to function the Maine Liquor Law Bill, brought up from the Legislative Assembly. His instructions being "to reserve, for the signification of the Queen's pleasure, every bill of an extraordinary or unusual cha- racter," he has availed himself of his privilege, and trans- ferred the bill to the authorities in Downing Street, where, no doubt, the extraordinary production will meet with all deserved attention. In the Court of Exchequer, Dublin, an action was brought by Mr. Charles Rousselle, a performer of feats of Strength, against the proprietor of Saunders' Keics Letter, for neglecting to insert an advertisement chal- lenging another artiste to a trial of strength. Damages were laid at £ 100. The jury returned a verdict for the defendant, with costs, holding that the editor of a news- paper has a right to exclude any matter he pleases. The editor of the Bedford Mercury requests his agri- cultural subscribers, who contracted two years ago to pay four bushels of wheat for their annual subscription to his paper, to Uring in the grain." Wheat was then selling at 50 cents a bushel. Now that it has risen to 2 dollars a bushel they are slow about coming forward. Eight dollars a year for a single subscription to a weekly paper seems a high figure-yet a bargain is a bargain." In the coni market it is stated that British merchants will suffer largely by the destruction of property in the Sea of Azoff. One party, we hear, had 40,000 quarters of wheat at Taganrog, purchased at the low figure of 10s. per quarter, consequently there would have been an immense profit if the article could have been got away. EXPENSES OF THE REGISTERS OF VOTERS.—A return obtained by Sir G. Tyler, M.P., shows that the gross total amount of all expenses paid by the several counties of England and Wales relating to the preparation and completion of the register of voters for the respective counties for the year 1854-55 was .610,779. including £ 9,714 for England and 1,065 for Wales. The amount charged on each county varied from X,24 to £066, the clerk of the peace being sometimes paid by a fixed salary. How CIGARS ARE MADE,—In a number of The Lancet, not long since, a report of its analysis of cigars is given. The general mass of cigar examined had no adultera- tion," but some samples are thus described Made up in the centre with sweepings, probably of the warehouse. They contain dust, dirt, fragments of mortar, pieces of apple-paring, and much broken and refuse tobacco leaf. Purchased of a hawker in Whitechapel Road, cheroots, made up of two twisted wrappers or layers of hay, not a particle of tobacco entering into their composition." JUDICIOUS USE OF POWER.-At the Hereford County Court, recently a man was summoned for neglecting to pay for a pair of boots. His Honour (to plaintiff) What is this man ? Plaintiff: A mason.—His Honour Well, will you give him a month to pay it In ? Plaintiff (after hesitating): No, Sir !-His Honour: Then I will, if you won't (laughter). I presume you don't want to sell the man up:—Plaintiff No Sir.—nis Honour: Then I shall order it to he paid this day month. MoRMoxsox SLAVERY.—Brigham Young, the High Priest of the mormons at the Great Salt Lake, has re- cently issued a manifesto, in which he states that the charge against the Mormons of being hostile to American slavery is a calumny. His words are as follows:- The seed of Ham, which is the seed of Cain descended through Ham, will, according to the curse put upon him, serve his brethren, and be a "servant of servants" to his fellows-creatures, until God. removes the curse and no power can hinder it. A man named George Wadley deserted from the 46th Regiment about five years ago, and returned to his home at Hereford, married, and became the father of three children. Last week lie was apprehended as a deserter, and locked Up in the Hereford City Gaol. On Saturday the governor, on visiting the cells, found Wadley in a fainting state, and the skin, flesh, nalls, and bones of the fore and middle fingers of his right hand hanging in shreds. He said that the tyrani,y he had experienced and witnessed in the 46th Regiment was such as would kill him if he were subject to it again, and that he would sooner be shot than serve again in such a corps. He had crushed his fingers with the wooden blocks. THE CAVTURE OF KERTCH.—The manner by which the soundings which had enabled Admiral Lyons and Admral Brnat to plant the successful attack on Kertch is curious. A British naval officer, whose name is not yet probably known, captured a vessel having on board a private carriage belonging to the Russian governor of Kertch. With this material pledge in his possession he sent a polite message to the governor, stating that the English cruiser was unwilling to deprive him of his pri vate property, and would have great pleasure in restor- ing the carriage to its former owner. The offer was accepted, and the ship's boats entered the Bay of Kertch with the vehicle on board, sounding as they went. By this means it was ascertained that there was a passage for the small steamers to within a short distance of the coast, and the governor's carriage made a track for the British fleet. A Tax OF COAl, IN AMERICA.—Judge Grire, of the U.S. Circuit Court for Pcnsvlvania, has decided that a ton of coal is 2210 and not 20001 bs. The question came before him on appeal from the U.S. District Court, in an action to recover for coal furnished a steamer. The judge said, a company of grocers might as well meet and agree to reduce the number of ounces in the pound, and make the smaller number the standard of a pound for their customers, as for coal dealers to agree that the weight of a ton shall be 20001bs. His decision conflicts with a decision of the Supreme Court of Pensylvania, which decided a case in Pittsburg, a few months ago, that according to the laws of Pensylvania. a toil was 20001bs. Thirteen young ducks were recently missed from a donkey cotc at Halifax, and after some search, they were found dead and laid up in store for the food of some young rats which were found at the same time in the walls of the building. The paper which relates the story adds that the owner stuffed the ducks with arsenic and left them there. A letter dated off Cronstadt, May 28, says:—The fleet have at last ventured to sight the terror of our friends. Yesterday the Orion, Magicienne, and Merlin went in pursuit of some small place called Caporia. The Dragon cut out three of these vessels, about 300 tons each, and made an attempt to bring out another vessel of 500 tons, but the number of Cossacks that came down to oppose them prevented their success. The Magicienne then chased thirteen similar vessels, but was very soon ob- structed in her chase by a battery of twenty guns open- ing fire on her; which she very bravelv answered, but as yet we have not heard the result. Tlie Merlin has been sent to her assistance. The weather here is very cold as yet, and all the gunboats are in readiness for action. The Ajax and Lightning were in Nargen Roads when the Vulture passed through. She met several small vessels that were undeniable prizes* but Captain Glasse having despatches onboard, and knowing the importance of his mission, endeavoured to reach the fleet as quickly as possible, and did not lose his valuable time in boarding the enemy. A letter from St. Petersburg, of the 27th ult., in the Cnnstitutionnel says:—Accounts from Simferopol and Katasabasar state that the families of the Russian em- ployes and soldiers are abandoning Taurida, under pretence of the dearness of provisions, but in reality from a fear that the whole of the Crimea will be con- quered. For some time past orders have been given not to send any more troops into the Crimea, in order not to cause too much difficulty in procuring supplies for them. and also in order not to sacrifice there ail the picked troops of the Russian armies. The news that the Em- peror, yielding to the entreaties of the Empress Dowager, has not allowed the Grand Dukes Nicholas and Michael to return to the Crimea, has caused a very great sensa- tion here. This maternal solicitude of the Empress is not considered as a good omen of the state of things at the seat of war. In order to collect a sufficient number of recruits for the army, the Emperor has ordered that the peasants on the estates of the Crown shall be liable up to the age of 35, whereas hitherto 25 has been the limit. This measure has caused great consternation, as at that age almost all the peasants are married men and fathers of families. The Constitutionel has the following curious advertise- ment:—"A Prince without posterity will adopt a child of an opulent and honourable family. Address, letter franked, to Count Aymar, Rue de la Rocliefoucauld No. 48." The following is taken from a private letter from the seat of war:—" Lord Raglan is nick-named in the Crimea, Jack Rag; Canrobert, Robert Cant, because lie can't take Sebastopol; Lord Cardigan, Old Charge-again Lord Lucan, Old Look On; General Scarlett, Blood and Ouns, because of his name and being always in the thick of the fight. The Russians are called Johnny Risskies; but when they fight with unusual obstinacy, they are called Johnny liusfies." PAPER AND ROPE FROM THE HOLLYHOCK.—Mr. J. Xiven; gardener, Keir-housc, has succeeded in fabricating paper and rope from the common garden hollyhock, and has patented his invention under the title of Niven's patent hollyhock paper and rope." The paper is of the appearance and texture of that used for small bags and parcels by grocers, &c., and is very clean and firm. The rope is about half an inch thick, light and shining in colour, and apparently of considerable strength.-Perth Courier.

S UNITED COUNTIES LUNATIC ASYLUM. -Some few weeks ago the attention of the rate- of this county was called to the subject of the Counties Lunatic Asylum," by communications 0„ ,c'1 appeared in your journal. As it is a matter seri- 4!¡dly afieeting the interests of the payers of the County 00r Ratus>110 time ought to be lost bv the Guar- H and Ratepayers generally in petitioning the Jus- (J* at the next Quarter Sessions, against so great a lk en being put upon these counties, at a time when t), Necessities of the public service require a far more tjwj ordinary amount of general taxation. Some idea « J" be formed of the enormous expense of these County 1 w.JU'fis when T mention rhat one built for the countv ^bo "ts cost nearly £ 60,000, aud that for a population of as Sreat as that of the four united counties of tta?0rSan, Carmarthen, Brecon, and Pembroke; it may fot Wove be easily calculated what must be our outlay for^bke purpose. Further, the cost for pauper lunatics tij,. ''iltsliire, under the new system, is nearly £ 10,000 «C"UIU> whilst our present outlay for the four coun- 8t»ii]-es not exceed £ 6,000 a vcar. The taking a pounds, and pence view of the subject lias been depre- "*61 certainly is not right to look at it exclu- %h *n tllat light; but it remains to be proved that the of comfort or of cure are greater where immense Ss' s patients are crowded together along with a ^ft ^'able number of idiots, who arc at present mostly it their friends at home, receiving small sums for ainteriatice, than unde.i the present system of 'lag them to neighbouring licensed houses, wlieie the ^issioners in Lunacy and the Visiting Justices take kle tilat they are well treated; and when the pro- W0rs» whose characters for humanity and good man- 'er|t are as much at. stake as those of a number of W officials, who, from the nature of their positions are W«ly less amenable to public opinion. There is w v'ew °f the question that ought not to be lost which is, that in nearly every instance these ari<^ expensive County Asylums have been found tL Equate to contain the number of cases scut to them; prises from their being filled up with harmless idiots <U,durable imbecile cases, which, as I said before, are Sent kept at home by their friends on a small paro- allowance; but when once they are forced into larSe public establishments, they come in under fyfptteral average high rate of maintenance. It must Hwfs be borne in mind that, though payments for establishments are made from two sources, it lW^rs little to the farmer or tradesman unrW what the money is paid if the sum total has to come out Wf P°cket. At present he has some control in the iSvn' but let a large and expensive establishment be j on the new system, and the Guardians and I 'Wc?s will lose the greater part of the control, which have hitherto had, over the funds they are called to provide. I remain, Sir, your obedient servant,

JUltJilUJN IN T ELLIG ENCE. The taking by assault of the M a melon and White Works on the night of the 7th is not so exclusively a French victory as the despatches had led us to suppose. Lord Panmure communicates to the papers this morning melancholy evidence to the contrary in the list of English officers who fell in the assault ;-Captain Muller, 2nd Battalion Royals; Lieut. Lawrence, 34th Regiment; Lieut. Stone, 55th Regiment; Lieut.-Colonel Shearman, Major Dickson, Lieut. Machell, Capt. Forster. 62nd Regiment; Major Bayley, Capt. Cdrbett, Capt. Wray, 88th Regiment; Lieut Lowry, Royal Engineers. The Moniteur of yesterday publishes the following despatch from General Pelissicr, dated Crimea, June 9, 11 p.m. :—" The situation is the same as yesterday. All the demonstrations of the enemy against the conquered works have been fruitless. They have abandoned the so- called battery of the 2nd May they have also completely abandoned to us the right shore of Careening Bay. The ships in the port have sought refuge in Artillery Bay, where our large mortars can reach them. We are watching them'attentively." The Moniteur this morning announces that the Minister of War received, on the 12th of June, the following des- patches by the Commander-in-chief.—■ 10, 11.30 p.m.—The combat of the 7th of June was more advantageous for us than I had at first anounced to you. It placed in our hands 502 prisoners (of which number twenty are officers) and seventy-three pieces of of cannon. 11, 11 j;.m.—We are consolidating ourselves in the new works. We have been able to fire with the Russian mortars on their ships, which have gone further off. We are preparing new batteries." The Chronicle of Wednesday publishes the following telegraphie despatches:- Paris, Tuesday,- The latest information from the Crimea states that General Morris, at the head of a cavalry force, had made a reconnaissance of the entrenched camp possessed by the enemy beyond the Tchernaya, and es- timated the number of the enemy to be between eighty thousand and one hundred thousand men. The heat was excessive in the camp. Marseilles, Tuesday,—We learn that the allied troops occupying the valley of Kemara, on the banks of the Tchernaya, amount to fifty thousand men. They have wood and water in abundance. The aqueduct that leads to the Careenage, and which was diverted by the allies to deprive Sebastopol of water, has been repaired for the service of the camp. General Bosquet was to invest the north side of Sebastopol at the head of his corps rr armce." The Paris correspondent of the Times informs us that: -The Mamelon Vert, which has just been taken by the French, is to the east, in front of the Malakhoff Tower, or, more properly speaking, of the large Malakhoff Bat- tery. It commands the Careening Port, the military buildings belonging toit, and the communication by which the garrison of Sebastopol is constantly receiving rein- forcements from the army outside. The occupation of this Mamelon, moreover, deprives the Malakhoff of the support which it received on the eastern side, and which considerably annoyed the French works. The capture of this position, in which the French established themselves, cannot fail to have very immediate consequences on the fate of the great Malakhoff Battery, on which, in the opi- nion of military men, the destiny of all the southern part of Sebastopol depends. The post which the English have taken possession of and in which they have esta- blished themselves, is not very clearly indicated on the maps of the place but, on looking at the plans in relief, it will be seen that it is nearly on the same line as the Mamelon Vert. The occupation of it will therefore per- mit the English to combine with the French in an attack on the great Malakhoff Battery, the fall of which is now considered as not far distant.
ITALY; On the evening of the 12th an attempt was made at Rome to assassinate Cardinal Antorioni. The man missed lis aim, and was immediately arrested. tiAMnno, WEDNESDAY.—Admiral Bayne's division of seven ships and nine gunboats was off Kudnoven, in the iireat Belt, on Wednesday.
SPAIN. A band of 70 unarmed men was formed on 11th near Pompeluna, and took the direction of the French frontiers :0 procure arms there. They were hotly pursued. The greater number sought refuge in France. A movement n Catalonia is said to be feared. INDIA.—The Post says the Birman chief Manglo has "evolted against the English. The Times, in a leader on Prince Albert's speech at the rrinity House, shows that our system of publicity is preferable to the Russian method.

The Legislature having decided on the REPEAL of the NEWSPAPER STAMP, the Promoters of THE NEW MID-WEEK PAPER FOR PEMBROKESHIRE, Beg to announce that ON WEDNESDAY, THE TWENTIETH OF JUNE, 1855, In pursuance of their preliminary notice, will appear the First Number of POTTER'S ELECTRIC NEWS. PROSPF, CTTTR- TIIEN it became apparent that the feeling in Par- V V liamartt was favourable to the Abolition of the Newspaper Stamp, and that its Repeal was near at hand, it occurred to the Promoters of the Electric Ncics that the time had arrived when a successful effort might be made to meet the demand (especially urgent at the present juncture) for a more frequent communication of passing events, &c., than was within the reach of a large number of the Inhabitant's of this County. After mature consideration, it appeared to them, that the most effectual moans of supplying this want would be the publication of a Newspaper in the interval be- tween the issue of other weekly Journals circulated in the County and being anxious that all classes should share in the advantages derivable from the change in the Law, they resolved to publish their Paper at the lowest remu- nerative price. This determination was much strength- ened by the circumstance that their Paper would foral a ready vehicle for conveying the latest Telegraphic News to all parts of the County, the benefits arising from which, for want of such a mode of communication, are now principally confined to the Town. The objects which the Promoters of the Electric Ncivs have in view in the establishment of their Paper, and the principles on which It will be conducted, will, it is confidently anticipated, secure for it a liberal and exten- sive public support. Intending to avail themselves largely of that invaluable auxiliary—the ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH-the importance of which has been much increased by its uninterrupted extension to the Seat of vr ar in the Crimea, the Pro- moters of the Electric News will be able to substitute the latest authentic intelligence for the idle rumours and garbled reports which are at present disseminated and, from the moderate price of their Paper, to place within the reach of even the humblest Cottager a trustworthy account of the thrilling events that now agitate the World. Though the Promoters believe it probable that their Journal would meet with extensive patronage at the present eventful period if its pages were merely occupied with a recital of the most interesting occurrences of the War, it is far from their intention to confine their matter within so restricted an area. They have in view the permanent establishment of their Paper; to secure which they hold it essential that it should not only be a cheap medium for conveying interesting and important News, but also a sound organ of public opinion, a faithful chronicle of local affairs, and a fearless exponent of a wholesome code of social and political sentiments. With this conviction strong in their minds, they are deter- mined, as fat' as in them lies, to supply the Public with an "ARTICLE" which shall possess those elements of permanency; and have the fullest confidence that by adhering strictly to this resolution their enterprize will be crowned with complete success. Proposing to model their Journal on this general plan they have no hesitation in further stating more specifi-, cally the course they intend to pursue. Their POLITICAL ClunD will he marked by no extreme views they will identify themselves with no party will neither be the slavish advocates of a sect, nor court notoriety at the expense of truth and honesty. Satisfied that the public are too often deceived by names "—that the term "Liberal" has too fre- quently been assumed, not with a view of advanc- ing free and enlightened opinions on the various topics of the day, but of serving a narrow and selfish purpose—that the word Conservative" has been wrested from its original signification, and has been claimed alike by the most inveterate Tory and the most "advanced" Liberal, the Promoters of the Electric News will rest their claims for public support not on the flimsy basis of a "name" but on the soundness and truthfulness of the principles which will be put forth in their Paper. To the various political subjects that may engage 9 the attention of the country they will endeavour to bring a calm and dispassionate judgement, and to lay before their readers an impartial view of the argu- ments by which any important question is supported or opposed. They will to the best of their ability advo- cate such measures as after mature deliberation shall be found to be necessary for the well-being of the com- munity at large, and will be ever ready to give their support to such changes and reforms as are consistent with the safe and steady progress of society. With regard to the Great Question that at present absorbs universal attention, their opinions are strong and definite. They believe—and their convictions have been confirmed by the result of recent negotiatmns—that no peace that can be patched up in the present position of the belligerent Powers would be permanent and satis- factory. They regard the prosecution cf the war, which, with England and France cordially united, must, in the end, prove disastrous to Russia, as the only means of curbing the ambition of that Power, and checking her onwifrd progress towards the consummation of her tra- ditional policy, and of securing a safe and honourable peace. It will be one of their especial objects to com- ment on and give the earliest and most elaborate infor- mation of the progress of the war, both in the Baltic and the Black Set and when it is remembered that in- telligence is now received from the latter quarter—a distance of THRF.E THOUSAND miles, in the short space of TWF.XTY HOURS, the Promoters of the Electric News feel assured that the Public, especially in the remoter parts of the county, will soon learn to appreciate the advantage of obtaining, at the cost of ONE PENXY, the heart-stirring accounts of the exploits of our gallant soldiers and sea- men in so short a time after th lir occurrence, and of ascertaining the exact state of our Naval and Military operations. To local afflirs it is their intention to devote a con- siderable portion of their colums. Pembrokeshire bids fair to become one of the most important counties in the kingdom. The extension of the South Wales Rail- way to the shores of the unrivalled harbour of Milford will ensure, in the course of time, the development of its capabilities and it will be the duty and interest of every one who has the welfare and prosperity of the county at heart, to hasten the consummation of that event. The Promoters of the Electric News pledge them- selves that they will not be behind hand in urging on the good work, the completion of which will be attended with such incalculable advantages. The Electric News will also contain faithful reports of local meetings, assize intelligence, and other general news connected with the district, to ensure the authenticity of which the Promoters will spare neither trouble nor expense. To correspondents who niay choose to honor them with their contributions, provided they are free froni offensive personalities, their columns will ever be open. For this gross abuse of public journalism, they are determined the Electric News shall never be chargeable. It shall on no consideration be made the medium of venting private malice, or of wounding the feelings of individuals and"r the convenient cloak of anonymous epistles nor shall its pages be disfigured by that flippant strain of vulgar ribal- dry for which some editors are conspicuous. This species of vicious literature the Promoters are content to leave in the hands of those self-constituted guides of public morals and public taste who have already rendered themselves sufficiently notorious without any material addition to their respectability, or a corresponding increase in the circulation of their paper. In inserting articles from other sources the Promoters will be careful to make such selections as shall at oncc be interesting and instructive, jealously excluding anything that may be injurious to good morals or offensive to delicacy. In short, it will be their constant aim to render their Paper valuable and attractive by the excellence of its matter—by the sober and uuexaggerated tone of its articles—the faithfulness of its statements—the accuracy of its reports-the copiousness and authenticity of its intelligence, foreign and domestic-and by the absence of aught that may minister to a depraved taste for temporary public ex- citement at the expense of private feeling. Pledging themselves to carry out to the utnlost of their power the principles and objects herein shadowed forth, the Promoters believe that they will not appeal in vain for that assistance from the Public, which is essential to the success ot their spirited undertaking. It is obvious that without a Large Circulation, the Paper must neces- sarily be a failure. On the unstinted support it will re- ceive, its existence must depend. The Promoters appeal to no class or party to further their enterprize. Their Paper is intended for the PEOPLE OF PEMBROKESHIRE, and front them, without rank or distinction, they look for a generous response to their efforts. To Advertisers the Electric News will afford a valuable medium of publicity, and the Promoters trust that they shall receive liberal encouragement to their project from that source of support. They beg to state that from the size of their Paper, to which the extreme lowness of its price compels them at present to limit it, advertisements will be printed in a uniform style and type, with a due regard, however, to distinctness and legibility. The Electric News may be obtained every Wednesday morning, at the 0:fice in High-street, Haverfordwest; of Mr. PERKINS, Bookseller, Market-street, Haverfordwest; Mr. BARRETT and Mr. TRKWEXT, Pembroke-Dock; Mrs. HIRD, Post-Offlcc, and Mr. ORMOxo and Mr. TSEWEEKS, Pembroke; Mr. EVANS, Druggist, Narberth; Mr. T.

FRAMPTON'S PILt OF HEALTH. rjMIE manifold advantages to the Heads of Families from tb'e J_ possession of a Medicine of known efficacy, that may be resorted to with confidence, and used with success in cases of temporary sickness, occurring in families more or less every day, are so obvious to all, that no question can be raised of its im- portance to every housekeeper in the kingdom. They are an excellent aperient, create appetite, relieve languor, and invigorate the spirits, and if taken after an indulgence at table they quickly restore the system to its natural state of repose. For upwards of nine years (writes Mr. Thomas Province, of Winchmore ITill, Middlesex) I have experienced the efficacy of this excellent Medicine, f had Ion? previously been afflicted with headache and indigestion but a friend having induced me to make a trial of Frampton's Pills, I now inform you that a few doses gave me great relief; and during this long-period of time I have taken them in preference to any other medicine; and I have the happiness of saying that I never had a better state of health, which I attribute to Frampton's Pills. I beg further to add, that this medicine is in general use by my family, and we know of nothing to equal it." Persons of a Full JIabit, who are subject to Headache Giddi- ness. Drowsiness, and Singing in the Ears, arising from, too great a now of Blood to the Head, should never be without them, as many dangerous symptoms will be entirely carried off by their immediate use. For Females, these Pills arc truly excellent, rcmoVing all obstructions, the distressing Headaches so very prevalent with the sex' Depression of Spirits, Dulness of Sight, Nervous Affec- tions, Blotches, Pimples, and allowness of the Skin, and produces a healthy complexion. To mothers they are confidently recommended as the best medicine that C,;11 be taken and for children of all ages they are unequalled. As a pleasant, safe, and easy Aperient, they unite the recom- mcndation of a mild operation with the most' successful eliect. by regulating the dose according to the nge and strength of the patient, they become suitable for every case, in either sex, that can be required.

BLAIRS GOUT AND RHEUMATIC PILLS. rpTIIS preparation is one of the benefits which the science of J- modern chemistry has conferred upon ma kind for during the first twenty years of the present century to speak of a cure for the Gout was con side ted a romance; but now, the efficacy and safety of this medicine is so full v demonstrated by unsolicited testimonials from persons in every rank of life, that public, opinion proclaims BLAIll'S PILLS as one of the most important dis- coveries of the present age; and in testimony of it«"ctficacy, John J Giles, Esq., of Frijnley, near Bagshot, says :— II iving suffered much from acute Rheumatism, I was introduced to try your Blair's Pills, and beg to bear my humble testimony to their efficacy." Sir. Wm. Courtney, of Barton Staccv. Hants, Says Having suffsred lnueh from Gout, I had resort to Mair"* Pills, and within two hours I was quite easy. File use of these Pill ought really to be known all over the world." Mr. W. Taylor, Bookseller, Warminster, Wilts, writes :—" Wm. Penny, of Cort n, Wilts, was aftiictpd with Rheumatism, to such an extent that lie could not more hand or foot; he was recom- mended by a gentleman to try Blair's Pills, and accordingly pro- cured a box at llr.
