ALTERATION IN THE BANK RATE OF DISCOUNT. Th^JHrectors of the Bank of England have at length nodified their rank ofterma of discount, and the mini- num now stands at per cent. This measure was forced tpon them by the abundant supply of capital in the >pen market, and reduced rates at which accommodation iould be obtained there. Of course few persons would ço to the Bank and pay 6 per cent., when they could ihtiin the assistance they required in Lombard-street at ji, and thus the discount business of that establishment, luring the last few days, has almost ceased. A consider- ible improvement must have taken place in the various tems of the Bank accounts since the last were published, Lild these is redson to believe that a further deeline in he charge for accommodation will soon take place. Already the discount firms have lowered their terms, and lince the directors separated first class bills, have been liseounted in the general market at Hk per cent. While ,he supply increases, anp the demand is restricted, the eudency must necessarily be in a favourable direction. This alteration no daubt will induce many persons having tionev deposited on call' with the Joint stock and other Jstablishments to withdraw it, the allowance for the use )f such capital being now under 5 per cent. The pre- iumptioh therefore is, that investments in the Funds and )ther Securities will become more numerous. The market for the English Funds opened firmly, but :hey have not been much benefitted by the reduction of ;he Bank rate. Indeed, a decided fall has occurred, and he market is exceedingly depressed owing to large sales. Sun Thursday.
LOYAL PEMBROKE CASTLE LODGE OF ODD- FELLOWS. The anniversary of this lodge took place on Tuesday, the 14th instant. At one o'clock several of the mem- bers met at the lodge house, when Adams, Esq.. of Holyland, was initiated a member of the order. About three o'clock the brethren, numbering about one hun- dred, who were dressed in their scarfs and aprons, formed themselves into a procession, and perambulated the town ( headed by a splendid brass band, and led by the Inside and outside Guardians, carrying, swords and mounted t on two beautiful cream colour horses, kindly lent by J. Williamson, Esq., Grejn Hill. This was a novelty in processions we have not seen before, but still it was < an improvement, and had its effect. The procession we must say surpassed anything of the sort we have seen. It may not be out of place to remark that the appear- ance of the members was most respectable, almost every one being dressed in black coats and trousers and white I waistcoats, which, with their scarfs and aprons, and the regalia, had a most imposing appearance, and told well ] for the sober industrious and respectable habits of the members of the lodge. About five o'clock they sat ( down to a splendid repast, served in Mr. and Mrs. s Michael's usual style, to which ample justice was done. The chair was occupied by J. Adams, Esq., sup ported on his right by D.G.M. Charles Thomas, and on his left by P.P.G.M. Thomas Nash Phillips, of Haverford- west. The vice-chair was filled by P.G. Henry Prout Jones, Esq., (Mayor} supported on his right by P.P.G.M. John Williams, and on his left by P.P.D.G.M. John Henry p Gwyther. r The cloth being removed the various loyal and patriotic e toasts were ably proposed by the Chairman, and enthu- s siastically responded to. After which P P.G. M. Phillips proposed the health of the Chairman, who had that day 1 enrolled his name with Odd-fellowship, and had been c initiated into its mysteries, and he trusted that he would q live long and die a good Odd Fellow. f 1 he Chairman, on rising, said, that the kiud and able mallnpr in which his name had been mentioned and hi, c health proposed, an 1 the feeling and enthusiastic reeeptlO,) it had met with, had so overpowered him that he scarcely i could give expression to his feelings. It was true he had that day beto tie nn Od ) Kellow, and he did not regret it. The principles of Odd Fellowship, which had been deli- vered to him on his initiation, were of the highest charac- ter, both morally and religiouoly; and if those prin- ciples were fully carried out by I he members, it would be C emphatically a Chrisliall society. He had joined the order 1 because bethought it the duty of all persons to assist and 1 promote benevolent societies. Every man, whether he C w<is rich or poor, whether he was in abject pr affluent cir- C Constances, should avail himself of the advantages offered by such societies as the one he had now the honour to belong lu. The Chairman closed a feeling and telling 1 speech, amidst the incessant cheers and protracted applause C Several other toasts were proposed and responded to. Some excellentsongs were sung during the evening, by Capt. Kees, 1 aud Brethren Williams, Thomas, llossant, Dewhetin. Tracy, Rowe, Rees, &c., &c. Altogether it was an ev n- ing of sociality and conviviality. Every one feeling happy 1 with himself and happy with his neighbonr, nothing, wh. t- ever, seeming to mar the pleasure of the evening. All lift J at a seasonable hour, respectable and respected. To the Editor of the United Service Gazette.

TENBY. On Sunday night last, some person or persons unknown committed an act of disgraceful and wanton destruction, by cutting and breaking six carriages, the property of Mr. David Jones, sadler. It is seldom our task to narrate doings of so malignant and detestable a character, and we had hoped our town did not harbour such mis- creants, but we are sorry to find the serpent brood are not entirely eradicated. No reason can be given for the commission of the outrage—Mr. Jones bearing an ex- tremely inoffensive character, & being much respected for bis fair dealing and civility. Two men named Johns and Thompson, were brought before the magistrates on sus- picion, but no evidence b3ing brought to bear on the case, they were dismissed. We are happy to say the svmpathies of the inhabitants of Tenby are without ex- ception enlisted in favour of Mr. Jones, and that sym- pathy has taken the tangible form of a subscription to aid in defraying the expenses consequent on the destruc- tion of his property. Subscription lists are open at the Library and other shops. CHURCH MISSIONARY SOCIETY.—Sermons in behalf of the above society were preached in the church of St. Mary's, Tenby, by the Rev. J. H. A. Philipps, M.A., of Picton Castle, and Vicar of Madeley, Shropshire. On Monday evening the annual meeting was held at the Assembly Rooms, when they were addressed by the Rsv. G. Clarke, Lieut. Greenway, and others. Collections were made at the close oleach service and at the end of the meeting.
FISHGUARD. LLANUCHLLWYDOG CHURCH.—On Monday last a public meeting was held in the above church and adjourned to Cwmllan, on the banks of the river Gwaun, in conse- quence of the sacred edifice being much too small for the number of persons that had congregated together on this occasion. The object of the meeting was the repairing of the above prettily situated and romantic little church Mr. Griffiths, ef Pengegin, proposed, and Mr. George, of ( Mynvdd Melyn, seconded, that the Rev. W. W. Thomas preside, who then stated the object of the meeting and expressed his pride and happiness in seeing so large a number responding to the call. Mr. Griffiths then, in a speech of some length, amongst other things informed his hearers that for the last eighty years there has been no regular member of this church, and that for the last twenty years it had been without a churchwarden that the consequence was, the edifice was in a dilapidated state, which, considering that it was their parish church, where all parochial business was transacted, and within the sanctity of whose precincts many old and valued friends and relatives were entombed, ought not to be. It was an evil which it became them to remedy — a duty had devolved upon them, vnich he trusted they would con- scientiously discharge. Mr. Griffiths ended, amidst long and protracted cheering, in proposing that the chancel be repaired by voluntary subscription.' It was then proposed by Mr. Griffiths, and seconded by Mr. John James, that Mr. D. Davies, assistant overseer, go round and collect the subcriptions immediately, so that the re- pairs be completed by the time of the opening of Fish- guard Church, which was agreed to. It was also ar- ranged that Mr Griffiths and Mr George act as treasurers. It is worthv of remark of these gentlemen, that they are always ready and willing to carry out any good work for the benefit of the parish. The Rev. W. W. i'homas — the much esteemed rector, in returning thanks to the meeting, said he was quite overcome by his feelings in witnessing the sympathy and good will displayed by the friends whom he found collected around him, and he should endeavour to merit a continuance of their friend- ship and good will. As far as be wis concerned he would do all he could to assist in the good work, and would himself give the necessary timber for the repairs. Mr. William Evans, of Penrhiw. made some suitable re- marks, and referred to the desirability of a free school for the parish, and stated that Mr. Llewelyn, of Pontfaen, was willing to allow a house and premises for the pur- pose, and sugguested that the worthy Rector apply to the Trustees of Madame Bevan's Charity for a school- master. The rev. gentleman promised attention to the matter. After partaking of some refreshment the meet- ing dissolved.
THE CROPS IN THE MIDLAND COUNTIES. We are now arrived at a crisis in the growth of the cereal crops 0: 'he country when some estimate can he formed of the prospects of the approaching harvest, and for many years it has not been the lot of the reporter to have so favourable a report to present as at this moment. The extremely hot weather towards the close of last month, when the wheat was in blossom generally through out Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, and Herefordshire, led to some apprehensions of a failure in the kernel, but happily at the critieal moment when it was wanting we had seme acceptable thunder showers, which did no harm to the crops, hut had a wonderfully fructifying effect, and have added some bushels per acre to the pro- duce The wheat is now full, and in forward situations is beginning to harden. The present sunny, hot weather jnst suits it, and unless a very great change takes place we shall have a very early and no doubt a very bountiful harvest, for. independent of the average produce being larger than usual, there is an increased breadth of wheat planted, especially in Herefordshire. The barley also was much benefited—indeed, saved by the rain, and is now in ear and looking promising. Oats arc but little grown in this, district. Beans were just come into pod when the rain opportunely arrived. They are a most excellent crop, being moderately tongin the straw, with- out any appearance of the black blight, which sometimes shortens the crop by destroying the late blossoms. Peas are promising. The haymaking is now drawing to a close. The week's interruption from rain has not beei iujuiious, only discolouring some of the grass just cuI. Tile en-p is very good in this dl trict—above li ton to t.)e acre, and, with very little exo ption, wi 1 be got up in first-rate condition. The turnips have been much in- fested with the fly, so that they have had to be sown two or three times. The turnip crop will be short. We have heard reports of the reappearance of the potato disease, but have seen none. The early crop is abundant in quantity and of good quality. The apples are partial. In sonic parts of Herefordshire, where the bloom promised a large crop, they have almost failed. The hop planta- tions are looking beautiful; the bine has has thrown out a promising midsummer shoot, and is free from blight. The Worcestershire plantations in this respect have a ireat advantage over the Kent and Sussex this year.
THE GREAT EASTERN. WHERE WILL THE LEVIATHAN Go ? —Speculation continues rite as to the first voyage of the leviathan steam -hip which attracts every one's attention in passing up or loun the river, and a variety oi guesses are circulated as o lie ports of her departure and destination. Holyhead, Milford, and Galway have severally been named for the brmer, and Portland, Norfolk, and New York arc con ;ending for the honour of entertaining the monster as •ascrly as the cities of encient Greece did for the fame of riving sepulture to Homer. Ths slaveholders of the south have sent a commissioner to this country to impress tpon the owners of the Great Eastern the commercial advantages derivable from shipping cotton trom the port learest to the place of growth, unmindful of the failure vhieh attended the attempts to establish cotton-mills at Liverpool and bonding warehouses at Mancheter. The vjew Yorkers, having seen all the mamoths of the ocean inter their harbour, are uneasy at the idea of the most itnpendous of all going to any other American port, and lave their agents in England, striving to secure the great ihip's first visit for their own city. Thcv admit that she iould not enter oy Sandy Hook, but affirm that there is mflicient water for her to lay at anchor in Long Island Sound. Calculations are being made of the profits to be ealir.ed by charging a fee to visitors, for the citizens of "ew York are as confident as those of Norfolk, who al- eady, in visions of the future, see their city the rival of "ew Orleans. Philadelphia may he expected soon to inter the lists, as a journalist ot that city predicts her :oing ashore or sticking fast on the bar, as the inevitable esulr of the Great Eastern striving to get through Long sland Sound, and relates how a certain guano ship, which iouid not get up to New York, succeeded in reaching the mays of the Quaker city. All these conjectures and sug festions have their origin on the other side of the Atlan ie, .nd appear to be little checked by the official announce- nent, made a short time back, that the Great Easter* is :hart< r 'd y the Grand Trunk Railway Comoany to eon- 'ey emigrants to Canada, and will proceed to Portland n April next.
THE CONSPIRACY IN FRANCE. The French police,' says a Paris letter in the Nord o Brussels, continue to display the greatest activity in their "esearehes after the Italians suspected of having taken lart in the late plot. As the first part of the conspiracy vas to have been an attack on [he life of the Emptror, he French Government have a particular inteiest in iearchingforand seizing on all the ramifications of this "evolutionary attempt. About thirty Italians have been ilrcady arrested at Marseilles, and on the frontiers of he Var, of the Jura and of Switzerland. At the time of ;he arrest of Bonaldi and Liprandi in Paris, not long dnce, the police discovered the cipher by the aid of which ihev corresponded with Mazzini, and thanks to that dis- covery, the French Government was able to follow, day by day, the march of the conspiracy which broke out at Senoa, at Leghorn, and in the Neapolitan States, and it is said that the Sardinian police seized at Genoa the special instructions of Mazzini relative to the French Emperor. A copy of these instructions has been sent to his Majesty at Plombieres. The greatest publicity will he given to the trials which are to take place in conse- ^ucce of these arrests, in order that the disclosures made may serve as a warning and an instruction to the whole of Europe.' THE LATE TRIAL AT GLASGOW-Madeleine Smith's fathe refuses to see her, and ere this she has left f"r a foreign land. The defence has cost somewhere about £4,1:00. A srreater sum than that was subscribed for the, purpose by af-w of the leading Glasgow merchants. One very old bachelor, a relative and namesake of the junior member for the city, put down a thousand pounds as his own share. The Messrs Holdsworth, to which firm William Minnoch belongs, were, it is said, willing to give the same measure of assistance; so were the wealthy family of the Bairds, and a rich uncle of the prisoner, from whom she has •expectations." The Dean of Faculty's fccwas.E250.anda 'refresher' of £70 every morning of the trial Mr. Young, who was associated with the dean in the defence, received £4uu altogether.—The Liverpool Albion. Miss MADELINE SMITH.—The Glasgow Courier states that Mrs. Smith is in a very critical condition and is ra- pidly sinking under the calamity which has been brought upon that family by the unfortunate daughter. MADELINE SMITH AND THE USE OF ARSENIC AS A COSMETIC. The Edinburgh Cowant says: — We have been favoured with the following extract from a private letter from London, for the authenticity of which we can vouch, although for obvious reasons the communication is strictlv confidential:—'I have several times used arsenie dissolved in water tll wash mv face whell I have bad frec- khs> from getting in the sun and very often my hands to get stains oft, and make them look white. I have always thought it a common thing, and was suprispd to hear there was any danger in doing it.' And the Kelso Chro- nicle observes that it can be proved by many a shepherd on the green hill-sidts of Scotland, that arsenic dissolved in water can be used with impunity. Each autumn at Ib: sheep-dipping period a solution of arsenic, with other iu- gredients, is prepared so strongly poisonous that a few drops lapped by a dog, or falling into the mouth of a sheep, will produce speedy death. Yet in this mixture, the hands, and to sorne extent the leus, of the shepherds are steeped for weeks together.' We feel it to be be a matter of mere justice to give publicity to these statements, but we must observe that it would be a great mistake to suppose that they at all encourage the practice in question. I HE VERDICT IN MISS SMITH'S TRIAL—It will be interesting to our readers and the public to learn the num- bers by which the jury came to a decision. After delibera- ting there were five for a verdict of alld tell for one of' Not proven.' Oil the question of an absolute ac- quittal there was no diversity of sentiment whatever.— Caledonian Mercury, A PUZZLE.—A pic-hic party, held on Malvern-bills, on Whit Tuesday, comprised the following persons:—One grandson, one great-grandson, two sons, one son-in-law, two husbands, two wives, two widows, one father, one brother, one uncle, one grand-uncle, three mothers, one sister, two grandmothers, out great grandmother, two daughters, one grand-daughter, one niece, one great ne- phew, one inother-iu- aw, one grandmother-in-law, one godson, one goddaughter, two godfathers, and two god- mothers. These 34 relations were united iu six persons.
OUR INDIAN AFFAIRS. t (From the Times.) The British Government in its relations to the Indian Empire is the absent man of general society. He hears, ofcoux", as quickly as other people, for his hearing obeys the laws of sound but he takes a lonj; time to comprehend what he heats and digest his information, and a stiii longer time to act upon it. By the aid of steam and electricity we obtain here news from every part of India within forty days from one of the Presidencies in exactly four weeks. No doubt, on the arrival of extraordinary and alarming ir.- telligence some activity is shown. The Cabinet meets; a general determination to send out more forces is promptly arrived at; and in one instance something is actually done with most exemplary despatch. Sir Patrick Giant having been appointed provisional Commander-in-Chief of the Army in Bengal not a minute is lost in finding on the list of Her Majesty's own service an officer more competent for that post, and he starts within twenty-four hours for his command. That done, and Sir Colin having embarked at Dover amid the cheers of his Highland friends, we are left to exclaim, () si sic omnia Would that either one man could save the Indian Empire, or that, as Shakspearp makes Talbot express it, the whole of Sir Colin Campbell would speedily follow, arms, legs, sinews, hones, in the shape of Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery! Cannot some one of Her Majesty's Ministers, in one House or the other, tell us simply what forces aregoimr, when they are to start, how they are to be conveyed, and when they are expected to arrive at Ca cutter and thence in the disaffected districts ? Precise information on all these points is the only way to meet a suspicion that the work is slackly done. For ex- ample, it has been asked repeatedly why the troops are not forwarded in stearpers-why, in Her Majesty s immense steam fleet, there tire no vessels available for the purpose and what hinders that use of them ? The answer given is, that years ago it was usual to send troops by sailing ves- seb, which did as well as steamers. This, however, is a question of facts and of figures. We arp a people of esti- mates We advance with caution from one year to another, ft is as easy to give an estimate of a voyage by sea or land as of the cost of a building or a harbour. Where is the Government, estimate of the troops sent or to be sent out, the time, and, we presume we must add, the cost? This element can not be omitted, because it is the principal reason for preferring sail to steam. Rut, if there be a dif- ference in the speed, is the lesser cost worth that difference? Is it worth the risk ? The use of steam is not to carry a huge ship full of men from Portsmouth to Ca cutta all the wav under steam, but to secure it from losing time by headwinds and calms. Time goes for much everywhere, but in India they live very fast. We see what has been lost already. Gen. Hewitt took 12 hours to consider what he should do with his sixteen hundred Europeans at Meerut, and before he had come to any conclusion a handful of fugitives were in possession of Delhi, massa-reing European Officers ind their families. The state of things there must have been known within 48 hours at Umhallah, and several other posts where there were disposable European forces; aud the calculation was that they should unite before Delhi on the 2fiih—that is, a fortnight after the outbreak at that city. But a siege train was not at hand, and had to be waited for, though it was no fortress that had to be t Iken, but only an old wall that had to be breached, and the result was that at the last date, the Bihof June, Delhi had been exactly one month in possession of the rebels.— Now, as far as regards the city itself, the besieging fo^ee, and everything likely to happen within a radius of 20 miles of Delhi, that delay might not be injurious. Cholera, famine, want of everything, and mutual jealou- sies would do their work within the walls. We are told of the puppet Emperor trying to play a double game; of •VJO cnvnlry compelled to leave the city, doubtless fox- want of food for man and horse and other s gns of fail ure. Every addition to the mutineers would aggravate II these evils. Meanwhile our own force was daily acquiring the means of doing its work with more certainty and effect. But, beyond that radius of 20 miles, what was the result of an insurgent army holding for a whole month, I in the name of a Mogul, the sacred seat of Indian Em- pire? Just as might' be expected, mutiny breaking out in the city, post after post, regiment after regiment, in the whole Presidency of Bengal, and only avoided by dis- arming regiments in the Punjab. Thus there seems every- where a fatai disposition to confine care and thought to the particular object in view, or the locality in possession. Of course' we cannot be surprised that our people were [I taking care of themselves at half-a-dozen important sta- I tions, to which officers and families were falling back.— i Nor are we surprised, on the other hand, that the exp'ra- tion of the month finds the whole of the upper part of the Presidency, down to Allahabad, in a state of revolt or impudent vacillation regiments of Infantry, Irregu- lars, Rjahs, all and everybody, undisguisedly considering whether they should revolt or not, and waiting to see what would happen at Delhi. II But we are not sure that we are not exhibiting at home the same delay, useful for the part, but fatal to the whole. On a larger scale there is the same night's rest, the same waiting for the siege train, and the same preparation to do the work well, when time is even more precious than th convenience or success of this or that part;cular operation All the rules of the service—of several services—must b respected. Our great ships must not be exposed to dan ger, or our ofifcers to work below their rank. With tt- e ships, with the officers, with the men, with the stores, with the coal, with the means of getting all these things at an hour's notice, one docs not see why the whole destined addition to Her Majesty's Army in India should not be embarked before next Sunday, with a fair probability of arriving at Calcutta, sailing and steaming, in two thirds of the time given by Lord Ellenborough. The knowledge that 20.000 whtte faces,' are on the way, and may be ex- pected in Be igal next November, will no doubt be di f- t ised rather widely over India before the end of Auru*t. It will have its effect. But if is always desirable th u armies should arrive, as Caesar often tells us he did, quicker than expected — ante expediotem diem. The enemy are like ourselves. Theywantrest. The) would always ra- | ther wait for something or other, to have their preparations thoroughly complete. There is always somebody who does not keep his appointment at a preconcerted junction. There is always somebody who wants to save his officers from fatigue, his men from cholera, his horses from starvation, his Praetorian guard, his high-caste gentlemen, or his beau- tiful ships from indignity or harm. There is always some- body too, who is so busy looking after hic Drivate concerns that he must neglect some of his public duties. When the.e shortcomings are on all sides victory often falls to the side that has least of them, and we trust the vicious pre- ponderance will not be in ours. War is terrible work The reconquest and reconstruction of a great empire are no tiifling undertaking. We must expect it to demand some sacrifices, and we hope there will not be much hesitation to make them.
THE NORTH KKNT RAILWAY CATASTROPHE-On Wednesday, Perry, the engine driver, and Whiffen, the stoker, of the train that caiisyd the recent fatal collision on North-Kent Railway, were brought up firi-dlv before the VIagistrate of the Green vich Police Co'irt, anrl committed for trial on a charge ot manslaughter. David Wild, the signalman of the Lewishnni station, and John Griffiths, sij- nabnan of the Bbickheath Station of the North Kent Rail- way, were also re-examined on charges arising out of the accident. Mr Traill ordered the discharge of Wild, wh > was then admitted as witness. He gave ar. account of tile working of the signals, and declared most positively that having to'en the signal to Blackheath to Slop all tip,' he never iemoved the interdict. At the close of his evidence Mr Traill said it would be his duty to commit Grithths. for trial. An inquest, on Wednesday, on the ix.dy of Mrs Boykrtt, who died in St Thotms's Hospital, from the inju- ries received on the occasion of this accident, resulted in a verdict that Elizabeth Ann Boykett died from the injuries received by the collision of two railway trains, near Lewis ham, in the county of Kent.' THE ENQUIRY INTO THE MANAGEMENT OF MINES- —The statistics of acccidents brought forward by Air Mackworth, at the examination in the present system is urgently required. In the vicinity of the pit belonging to one of the defendants, there had been duriug the last six years six hundred killed, and 90,000 in jured by different descriptions of colliery accidents, and this. when reduced to an annual average, gives a result of 1000 killed, and the enormous number of lo,o00men more or less injured. This terrible sacrifice and injury might he almost completely obviated with little trouble, and a very trifling extra expenditure. In the Ebbw Vale districtasimdarle-ison is taught. In that Company's colli ries alone there have been, the Government Inspec- tor informs us, seven fatal explosions, 14 falls of coal, 20 falls of roof, five fatal accidents in shafts, and two other mishaps underground, in live years. The sad results of this number of accidents were the deaths of 53 human beings. The Inspector asserts that a want of caieful su- pervision and attention alone originates so many unfor- tunateeasuahies. STATISTICS OF DIVORCE.—The number of divorces (a vinrulo matrimoniiJ grRnterl by Act of Parliament since the Reformation is 317. The first granted was in 1510, the next in 1551, and none from that time tol(i70— Another passed in IUnO. and from 1698 to 1750 there appears to have been one passed at intervals averaging about three years. Since 1752 but eifrht sessions have passed without a divorce being granted, the last being that of 1818. The year in which the largest number took place was 17U9 (10 divorces); 17(19 (91; 1836, 1840, aud 1842 (8 each); 1772.1849.1850 (7 pttch) 177(1 (d); and 1778,1793, 1797, 1835, 1841.1843. and 1855 (3 each. Only one divorce was granted in 1852, and two each in 1847, 1854, and 1850. The number of Scotch Decrees' of divorce durine the last ten years was 174, of which 99 were at the instance of the husband, and 75 at the suit of the wife. A Parliamentary Paper published on the mo- tion of Sir E. Perry gives these particulars. OXFORD CITY ELECTION.—Lord Mouck met the elec- tors in the Townhall, Oxford, on Saturday, and informed them that, finding it was the intention of a numerous and highly influential body of Mr Cardwell's supporters to bring that gentleman forward, he (Lord Monck) should withdrawfromthecontest. The friends of Mr Cardwell are now exerting themselves to procure his return. Mr. Thackeray, at a meeting of his supporters on Saturday evening, stated that the result of the canvass on his be- half had exceeded his most sanguine expectations. The East India Company have given notice that they will receive tenders on the 2fstinst. for the hire of steamers, of 1,000 tons register and upwards, for the conveyance of about 0,000 troops (of her Majesty's ser- vice) from Englmid or Ireland to Calcutta. The men are to embark not later t!ian the 29th instant, and the passage money will be payable in India, at the exchange of 2s. id perrupea. It is expected that an additional force will shortly be sent out. HER MAJESTY'S THKATKK.—After the conclusion of the regular season, a short supplementary season, at r -duced prices, is announced, in the course of which all the treasures of the repertoire will lie open to the general public. The performances will commence on Monday, the 20th instant, and be continued lor a fortnight. A different opera will be given each night, by which ar- rangement it is intended that the entire repertoire shall be produced—Lucia, Figlia, and Trovatore; La TravÙlta, Cennrentola and Sonnambula, the favourite parts of Mad. Alboui: Don Pasquali and Nozze di Figaro, Don Gio- vanni, with its extraordinary cast, besides the last scenes of I Martiri and II Pimta, selected for the benefits of Madlle. Piccolomini and Signor Giuglini, will be included in the series of extra performances. The ballet will be represented by liosati and Marie Taglioni, who have only recently commenced their engagements at the theatre. The time into which the people's season will b-j com- presssed is unavoidably limited, as the whole company leave early in August to fulfil their country engagements at Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, &c. The prices of admission will be so considerub v re- duced as to afford to families the opportunity of enjoying the highest class of musical entertainments at a very moderate expense. AxoTHEn POISONING CASE.—A short time ago the wife of a man in the employment of a respectable farmer in the neighbourhood of a leading little town in the upper ward of Lanarkshire died somewhat suddenly. To the surprise of every one, scarcely had two weeks passed over when the breach in the household was filled up by the widower leading home a second spouse. The un- seemly conjunction of bridal and burial, however, would seem to be tolerably well accounted for, in part, by the fact of the newly-married wife being far advanced in pregnancy. Information of so very unusual a concate- nation of circumstances having been conveyed to the Procurator Fiscal of the district, orders were inlmediately forwarded to have the body of the deceased wife raised and submitted to a careful examination. The contents of the stomach have been secured, and will, no doubt, undergo a searching analysis.—North British Mail. A WOMAN SUBSISTING FOR A WEEK SOLELY lTPOX WATER.— Early on Thursday morning a woman, Mary Na-eby, was discovered in a little dark hole connected with Mr Crossley's residence, Manor Heath, Halifax. The poor woman presented a sad, shrunken, and ema- ciated appearance. She was taken into the house, placed by the tire, and was treated with every consideration and kindness. When she was somewhat restored she was confided to the care of one of the county constabulary, to whom she told the following melancholy tale:—She said that ten years ago she was married in Manchester to an itinerant violinist, and until his death, in February last, at Halifax, she had travelled with him about the country, singing to the strains of his violin. Since her husband's death she had been compelled to go alone singing at public houses. Her earnings, however, were so small that they were insufficient for her subsistence, and at last she crawled into the place in which she was found, to end her existence. She had been there a week and a day, and during that time she had not tasted any- thing but water, which she procured from a tap in the yard near her hiding place. She crawled to the tap at night after all was locked up, and again in the early morning before anyone was stirring. She had no friends or relatives, and thought to die, but could not. She was brought before a magistrate, who greatly commisserated her, and by his orders she was conveyed to the work- house. The hole in which she was found was in the rear of the out-buildings, and its existence was unknown to most of the servants.—Manchester Guardian. FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT.—On Tuesday morning be- tween twelve and or.e o'clock, all accident occurred bv which several pelsons travelling by a pleasure-van were seriously injured. It appears a party of 24 young persons went out on an excusion of pleasure to Rye House, Hert- ford, in a van belonging to a Mr. Froud, residing in the Cornwall road, Lambeth and on returning home stopped at various public-houses, and eventuallv nearly the whole of the party became intoxicated. The driver, Joseph Nicholson, was driving the thiee horses down King Wil- liam-street, when the horses fell, turned over the van, pitching the whole of the 24 persons into the road, and the horses kicking and plunging in a most violent manner. THE QUKEN AND AMATEUR ACTORS. — Her Majesty the Queen has expressed a desire, through Colonel Phipps, to Mr. Charles Dickens, to witness theperf rrnancp o' the rlay it the Frozen Deep,' which has been announced at the Gal- lery of Illustration, for the benefit of the widow of the late Douglas Jerrold. Her Maj-sty wished Mr Dickens and his idoiirahle troupe of privnte performers to enact ihe play at Windsor Castle. Mr Dickens, if I am not incorrectly in- >rruc>d, rlpl;, d on his own pal t and on that of the gentlemen issociated with hlrn, Ihat he would !If' most happy 10 perform it the palace if the social status and position of himself and us colleagues could be lecognized on the occasion. In other .voros, these gentlemen, having their own notions 01 dw iiifnity of literature require lo oe treatpd as gentlemen aud listinguished literary characters by a lady who ought to be irouil of the literature of her reign. The Queen invites tainters 10 her :a'de — why not novelists and t)tlet,.? If for my reason this was not convenienr to Her Mitj"Htv, it w s ntimated that the gentlemen would be delighted to perform Defore the Queen at the Gallery of Illustration iustend of at the palace. The result has been thit Mr Dickens and his friendsdo riot go to Windsor, bur rhat the Queen and Court Mnne to the Gallery of Illustration. t tt-ave diis little and true story to sneak for itself, anri point its own moral, ami merely say,' Bravo, Charles Dickens.'—London Correspon- [lent "f the Inverness Courier.

PEMBROKESHIRE CONSTABULARY.—The various mem- bers of this force having received the preliminary drill and their official dress-an unusually neat and serviceable one by the way- have been appointed to their respective districts, and have entered on their duties. AV, e have never seen a finer looking body of rural police, or a force whose members seemed to combine more perfectly that firmness of character with a conciliatory and obliging manner which are so essential to n efficient police offic r. ACCIDENT.—On Wednesday, the Commission day of the Assizes, a lad, named John, was knocked down by one of the javelinmen's horses, which was being cantered Up the street.

PEMBROKESHIRE ROYAL ARTILLERY.—We perceive from a notice in the Gazette that this Militia is not to be to be called out this year. GLEE AND MADRIGAL USIOX.- We desire to draw the attention of our readers to an advertisement which appears in another column, announcing a visit of the Glee and Madrigal Union to Haverfordwest. The union consists of Mr. Henry Phillips, whose fame as a bass signer is European, Mrs. Sunderland and Miss Freeman, the former a charming soprano and the latter not less delightful as a contralto, and Mr. Wood, whom we have Dot had the pleasure of hearing, but to whom the critics award high praise as a tenor. The concert is fixed for ttext Friday evening, and the treat will undoubtedly be Otic of the rarest kind. The programme betrays the choicest taste. ROSEMARKET CHURCH.—A bazaar instituted for the provision of funds for the repair of this church was open- ed on Thursday in a room opposite the Town Hall. Mrs O. L. Phillips of Lawrenny Park was Lady Patroness. The laudable attempt was not, we regret to say, duly res- Ponded to by the Public. ST.

THE CUTTING CASE AT TRUFFLETON BRIDGE.—The Wo Reeses, father and son, are remanded till to-morrow for the attack on Enoch John, noticed in our last. THE AMATEUR BRASS BANDS.—On Wednesday even- Ing the two bands -conducted severally by Mr. Ribbon and Mr. Harding—assembled in Castle Square, and Played alternately. When a friendly feeling so mani- festly exists between the two, it would not merely be Ungenerous but bad taste were we, by any comparison their merits, to run even the risk of ruffling their harmony; we shall therefore content ourselves by paying that we entertain the liveliest recollection of ednesday evening's music as a whole without being able to particularize aLoY given piece as having pleased us ^ore than another. Of this we are quite satisfied that Nre experienced a higher degree of enjoyment than on any previous evening when only one of the bands per- formed, and we trust to hear the late rivalry of sweet sounds many a time re-enacted. The respective pro- grammes on Wednesday were as follows :— A MR. RIBBON'S BAND. J^Uck Step E. Ribbon. l^Pera Air—' Eliser di si Perfetta Donizetti. flection from L'Elisire d' Amore Donizetti.

PLEASURE TRIP.-On Monday several hundreds of the inhabitants of Merthyr, Aberdare, Neath, and SIVan- sea, travelled by excursion train to Nayland, and subse- quently went on a marine trip in the Malakhoff off the glands of Skomer and Skolkholm, the Smalls Lighthouse the Irish Channel, the Fortifications at Dale Point, Thorn Island and the Stack Rock. The day, gloomy at lt8. commencement, broke out eventually in unclouded lightness, and the excursionists enjoyed themselves to tbe top of their bent. They were conveyed back from •Neyland, as they were brought, by two trains, which insisted jointly of about 30 carriages. SOUTH WALES RAILWAY.—A curious accident occurred Jj? the down express of Friday last, near to Carmarthen ,.he circumstances were these :—The train was travel- og at the rate of about fifty miles an hour, and coming 0 the curve at Pibwr—the steam haviDg been shot off previously—it ran off the line, together with the tender, Ploughing the earth for nearly twenty yards, and im- bedding itself in the embankment. The engine was uninjured, but the tank and carriage of he tender were severed, and in the disunion one of them Cable in contact with the dome of the engine, the driver only. escaping certain death by stooping his head. The triages, of which there were three, bad meanwhile con- tlnued running, but when they had advanced about t*enty-fi\e yards they also ran off the line, and would *j^e made a complete topsy-turvy but for the great "eight of the hind, one which operated as a drag. The Passengers were consequently wholly uninjuied, and ~|eir escape is almost miraculous; for had not the coupling aip uniting the carriages with the tender broken, the j^Tiages must have been forced down the embankment, ^d loss of life or great bodily injury must have ensued to Passengers. The stoker is said to have been a good deal aken, but not permanently injured. The line is, for- ^lately, not at all damaged, but extensive repairs are ndered necessary to some of the carriages, and of course « *he tender. A photographic view of the scene was ken foi the directors on Sunday, on which day the ern- |joye8 of the company commenced a general clearance, •j. e running engines all used the up line on that day. but-6 ^rec*se cause of the accident has not been determined, trai say it originated in the excessive speed of the Vi]i^lBERTH FARMERS CLUB.—The Annual Exhibition 13»l e held on Tuesday the 4th ot August instead of the Entries to be made before the 23rd instant. 11 MILFORD. HARDING'S BAND intend serenading the inhabi- 8 of Milford from the Haven on Monday evening, a J"1?' from the position taken, the music will yield even in tloU than usual. The Band alsopropase playing ront-Street. con HE MAHI«AGE OF MR. LINDSEY.—The proceedings x*ith^r,ent °n 'k0 nuPtia's °f Wm. Henry Lindsay, Esq., The v • 88 Vaillant were extremely gay and interesting. ridesmaids were numerous, and were attired with site taste the path to the church was strewed with f the choicest, flowers, while the church itself was decked out with the fairest festoons. And finilly a brilliant party assembled at Mr. Vaillant's to partake of a sump- tuous entertainment and pledge the health of the happy pair, who were about to set out on their marriage tour. NAVAL COAST VOLUNTEERS.—The Royal Naval Coast Volunteers residing in the neighbourhood of Milford will assemble on board Her Majesty's Ship Amphitrite,' jn the third of next month, for twenty-eight days' training. Provisions and other necessaries, such as bedding and mess utensils, as well as a suit of clothes for drill, will be supplied on board; and on being discharged each volunteer will receive his pay, and bounty (if due), to- gether amounting to £3 5s 4d. The necessity of training men in the art of gunnery in the time of peace has long been apparent to naval men, it being well known that a very large proportion of the injuries received during a naval engagement, especially at the commencement of a war, has been the result of accidents occurring to men entirely through their being unaccustomed to work the guns. MAILS FOR THE SOUTH OF IRELAND-VIA MILFORD HAVEX AND WATKRFORD.—The Post Office Authorities have determined upon sending the Mails for the South of Ireland by the steamers plying between Milford Haven and Waterford, for which purpose Mr. Ridout is now at the Neyland terminus "f the South Wales Railway, per- fecting the arrangements with Me-srs. Ford and Jack- son. This will be one of th? greatest boons that can be conferred on the merchants both sides of the Irish Channel. CAMBRIAN INSTITUTION FOR THE DEAF AND DUMB. —A meeting in behalf of the above Institution was held in the National School Room, Milford. on Friday last, the Rev. W. B. Thomas, Vicar of Steynton, in the chair. The objects sought to be accomplished by the Institution, the numbers of those whose affliction it seeks to alleviate, as well as their capabilitv of being educated, were very interestingly set before the meeting by the hon. Secretary, Mr. M. Moggridge. Two of the pupibla who were pre- sent were also examined, and afforded a very satisfactory proof, by the progress they had made, of iheir capability of receiving instruction. The method, as well as the difficulty of training them was explained by the Principal Mr. E. Buxton. We regret to state that the attendance was small, and that so few in this age of boasted philan- thropy and enlightenment are disposed to respond to the silent though affecting appeal made by this most afflicted pl rdon of the human family. PHMUROKH PEMBROKE FARMERS' CLUB.—The fortieth anniver- sary meeting of this club will he held at the Dragon Hotel, Pembroke, on Saturday the 1st of August. A show of stock will be held in connection therewith. FATAL ACCIDENT.—We are sorry to hear that a young lad, son of Mr. Daniel Roberts, of Newton, aged 12 years, was, unfortuuately, drowned whilst bathing in "lackpole Fishpond, on Monday last. Captain (now Admiral) Smart having obtained his flag, will shortly be superseded in the superintendency of the Royal Dockyard at Pembroke.
