PEMBROKE. DEATH OF AN OlD INHABITANT.—On Monday Mr. Owen homas, late a wine merchant, expired at his residence, Green Mead Pool, Pembroke, in his 8lsf year. Mr. Thomas was a gentleman highly esteemid by all who knew him. He was mayor of the united boroughs in the year 1838, whan her Majesty Queen Victoria came to the throne, and the deceased gentleman had the honour of proclaiming her ascension, at the Dockyard, on that occasion, June 28tb. Mr. Thomas had retired from business for several years. ACCIDENT AND NARR".W ESCAPE.-On M, nday Mr G. H. Way, of Pembroke-duck, wds proceeding on his way to Pembroke in his dog-cart, and on going down Bush-hill, the horse a fine spirited animal, fell on bis knees. Before Mr. Way could recover himself the horse managed by some means to throw the bridle off his head, and immediately arose and started off down the hilJ at a furious pace. Just at the base of the hill, where there is a curve in the road, the horse ran the shafts against the wall, breaking both of them off, and pitching Mr. Way into the road. We are glad to say, however, that although Mr. Way was severely shaken, he was not much injured.
