USK. MONTHLY MARKET,—The market on Mondaylast was very thinly supplied with good stock, the prin- cipal part consisting of Irish breeds, the quality of which may be judged from the prices realized. Nine heifers and a bull were bought by Mr. Knight, of Kemeys, for £ 40, and 15 heifers and a steer were purchased by Mr. Cadle, of Llancayo, for the like sum. There was not one fat cow offered. Fat sheep fetched from 6.1d. to 7d. per lb. Lambs, 7|d. to Sd. ?2 per lb. Pigs scarce and dear. SOIREE IN USK CASTLE.—This popular gathering is now close at hand, and arrangements are in pro- gress for making the party as comfortable and pleasant as on any previous occasion. If the present fine weather continue, it is expected that the attend- ance will be large, but not so numerous as it would be, had the price of admission remained as hereto- fore. We are sorry the committee thought it advi- sable to increase the price of the tickets, as it will debar a great many from attending-besides giving the idea, that by so doing it is intended to make the party more select by shutting out the poorer portion, although such is not the case, the object being to realize a little more profit. This. however, is to be condemned, for one of the most interesting features connected with the gathering was to see the richest and poorest of the neighbourhood, meet together one day in each year on equal footing. The wealthy, endeavouring by their affability and kindness to en- dear themselves to their poorer townsfolk, and the labouring portion of the community enjoying them- selves free from restraint. AMUSEMENTS.—Our little town will be full of life on Monday next should the weather prove favour- able, for from the two advertisements appearing in our columns of to-day, it will be seen that the grand svent of the year, the Castle Soiree," is to come off in that day besides which, on the same day, a ;< Cricket Match will be played between the Ponty- moyle club and the club of our town and the place will be enlivened by the proce'ssion of the "Lodge )f Odd Fellows," with their magnificent regalia and gorgeous costumes, headed with a brass band from Newport, all tending to add fresh life and energy to the scene. Should the weather be what we wish, we shall expect the town to be overflowed to excess, for seldom has such an opportunity of enjoying them- selves been afforded to our townspeople and neigh- bours, as the one approaching, and we hope that iiothing will transpire to interfere with the harmony and pleasure of the day. USK BIBLE SOCIETY1—The annual meeting of this Auxiliary was held in the Writing School, on Wednesday evening last. The attendance was not so large as on previous occasions, owing, probably, to the fine weather which kept many away who were engaged in harvest operations. M. P. Smith, Esq., of Cefn Ila, occupied the chair, in the absence of Mr. Geo. Nicholl. The annual statement was read by the treasurer, the Rev. W. H. Wrenford, from which it appeared that there had been a gradual increase during the last two or three years, both in the general funds of the Auxiliary, and in the sales of the Word of God at the Depository. The Revds. George Thomas, S. C. Baker, andlihys Evans, addressed the meeting on the value of the scriptures and the duty of circulating them and the deputation, the Rev. W. Acworth, in an excellent speech, which the listeners seemed fully to appreciate, enforced the claims of the Bible Society, and shewed some of the valuable results which had already attended its operations. The collection amounted to 96 3s. IUd" which is the largest realized since the formation of Auxiliary in 1839. VESTRY MEETING.-A c an adjourned meeting held on Thursday last, Mr. Davies in the chair,—It was proposed by Mr. James Parker, and seconded by Mr. John Lewis, and carried unanimously, that a rate of 4td, in the pound be granted for the purpose of 2 lighting the town for the ensuing year, provided the Gas Company be satisfied with the amount such rate will produce. It was resolved—that two of the late inspectors of the town, viz., G. R. G. Relph and C. Blount, Esqr., make enquiry of Mr.W B. Gething and Mr. James Parker, overseers during the year 1 i.57, as to the arrears of gas rate uncollected by them to the amount of zC54 lis., and arrears of 10s. 9d., and afterwards call a parish meeting and state the result. PETTY SESSIONS.—FRIDAY. [Before GEORGE G. R. RELPH, Esquire.] Thomas Davies, Wolvesnewton, pleaded guilty to riding on the shafts of his cart. Dismissed on paying costs. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.—William Morgan and Thomas Gillam pleaded guilty to cruelly whipping a horse belonging to their master, John Haycox, Graigolway. Fined Is. each and costs. A precept to the High Constable was signed, appointing the 26th of August for the general annual licensing meeting. ASSAULT.—Joseph Hayward was charged with an assault on Thomal Lewis, at Penycaemawr. Allowed to settle the matter out of court.
MONMOUTH. TnB Gnors.—The few genial showers we have ex- perienced during the past week have proved of infinite service to the growth ot roots and green crops generally. Haymaking has been very general in this t 0 locality—great quantities having been got together and we may safely say the crop of hay about this neighbourhood is one of the heaviest we have seen. The autumn sown crops of wheat look exceedingly healthy, and bids fair at present to bring forth an harvest, but the spring sown, if anything appears to be of rather a lighter cast. MONMOUTH MARKET, SATURDAY, JULY 2.-This market was very well attended by purchasers, so much so, that the owners of stock in the poultry market cleared off by about three o'clock in the after- noon. Fowls, 4s. per couple; butter, Is. per lb eggs, 8 for 6d. In the vegetable market, potatoes (new ones) fetched 8d. per quarter old potatoes, 3d. ditto; cherries, 4d. per lb. i strawberries, 6d. per quart; raspberries, ditto; peasls. 6d.per peck. Wheat may be quoted as rather inactive, and remained steady in value at previous prices,—holders of sam- ples seemed anxious for an advance, while purchasers, on the other hand, seemed shy at a rise. MONMOUTH ATHENJEUM.—According to the confir- matory bills issued by the committee of the above institution, it appears that the annual gathering of the members will take place at the Kymin, on tha 12th July, on which occasion we hope the friends of the society will rally round the promoters of the fete, as the surplus, if any, will go to the funds of this useful institution. We are happy to state that the principal tradesmen of Monmouth have decided on closing their establish- ments, in order that their assistants shall have an opportunity of taking a trip to this delightful and picturesque locality. MONMOUTH MILITIA.-The officers and men of this corps continue to go through their course of training, and look exceedingly clean, smart, and soldierlike. During the past week the regiment have executed various manoeuvres in Chippenham meadow. We are given to understand that it is the intention of the Government to extend the term of training for a period of seven or eight days. BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY.—A meet- ing of the friends and supporters of this society was held in the Borough Court on Tuesday eveing last, at half-past six o'clock. The Bible Society was established for the purpose of increasing the circula- tion of the scriptures both at home and abroad, and admits of the co-operation of all persons who agree in its objects. The scriptures are also published without any comment, and those in the language of this kingdom are of the authorised version. The foreign versions are either such as are most accredited in their respective countries, or the best that can at present be obtained. This excellent society has already assisted in translating the Bible into no less than 150 dialects, and in distributing in different parts of the world 35,600,000 bibles and testaments. Although these results appear great, yet little has comparatively been done to meet the destitution of our own population, and millions who are strangers to the word of God. S. R. Bosanquet, Esq., occupied the chair, and eloquently addre-sed the meeting on behalf of the society, and especially noticed the exer- tions of the ladies in the cause. The Rev. W. Ackworth, M.A., Vicar of Plumstead, Kent, and de- putation from the Parent Society, entered at some length into the objects of the society, and in the course of the evening the audience was addressed by the Rev. J. F. Beddy, the Rev. W. Campbell, and the Rev. Mr. Furguson, of Llandogo, all of whom exhorted their hearers to use their best exertions in promoting the objects of this most truly Christian and excellent society. At the close of the interesting procedings a collection in aid.of the society's funds was made at the doors. POLICE COURT.—A private of the Monmouthshire "Militia was brought up in custody before the Rev. Mr. Lenden, on a charge of having fraudently en- listed in the above-named regiment, having pre. viously enlisted in the militia of the county of Glamorgan. Ordered to pay zC2 as fine, or two months' imprisonment.—Mary Lavender,widow, and keeper of a common lodging house, was charged by Superintendent Wheeldon with offending against the Act of Parliament, in permitting both sexes to con- gregate together, and also as regards the number of lodgers taken into her establishment. The case was not pressed owing to this being the first offence of the kind.—On the same day, Mary Lote, belonging to Llanelly, was charged with being drunk, but after being severely admonished by the bench was dis- charged. 4
CAERWENT. DEATH FROM DROWNING.—On Friday, the 1st instant, while a party from Mr. Woodhall's, of Great Dinham, Caerwent, was at the Black Rock Hotel, Portskewitt, spending the day, a gentleman, named Jones, incautiously ventered into the Severn to bathe, and the current being strong, it carried him off his legs, and before any assistance could be rendered, he sank to rise no more. A man jumped into the water and was almost drowned, in his endeavours to save the unfortunately gentleman. An inquest was held on the body on Saturday, at the inn, and a verdict of Accidental death returned. On the tide receding, the body was found the next morning, half in and half out of the water.
CARDIFF. DISGRACEFUL RIOT.-On Monday last a serious disturbance was created in that notorious part of the town known as Bute street. An Irishman was beating and ill-using a woman as Mr.Righton, pro- fessor of music, was passing along the street. The latter told the man that his conduct was shameful, when the fellow turned upon Mr. Righton and beat him in a most fearful manner. The police came up, but the fellow was so powerful and determined that it took abmt ten policemen and the Mayor to take him to the station-house. The Irish followed by hundreds, and the lives of the police were in jeopardy. The man was sentenced to three months' hard labour.
FONTYPOOL SAM COWELL.-This celebrated performer gave his popular entertainment in the Town Hall, on the night of Wednesday last, to a numerous and fashion- able audience, who appeared highly delighted at his droll and whimsical representations. The accom- panying performers were also well received, and the whole gave general satisfaction. THE CHERRY FAIR.—This annual gathering was held on Tuesday, the 5th instant, and, as its title in- dicates it is more for pleasure than business opera- tions. As the weather was extremely beautiful, a vast influx of people paraded the streets, and a large number also attended to administer to their wants and gratifications. Amongst the numerous and diversified objects of public attraction Billy the Rock's Circus" obtained much patronage, and his "Confectioner's Cherry Tree'' was much admired. The weather being somewhat drouthy," there was a considerable demand for heavy wet," and publi- cans had some difficulty in seeing that customers did not pay twice. The parish constabulary were on the :alert, and casualties were confined to a small scale. A CHARACTER.—George Jones and Elizabeth Wil- liams were placed before William Williams, -Esq., on Wednesday last, charged with attempting to pick pockets in the fair. John Roberts, puddler, observed the prisoners acting in concert, and they appeared to be known to the police. Mr. Williams, from the office of Mr. Greenway, defended the prisoners, and after cross-examining the witnesses, submitted to the bench that inasmuch as no property had been lost or found, and the evidence of the prisoner's intention being of a slender character, that no conviction should take place. The prisoner Jones said that he was well known in Newport, and that Mr. Huxtable would give him a character, if he were written to for that purpose. On receiving a conviction for 10 days to Usk, he told the policeman that if he had written to Mr. Huxtable for the character he should have had three months instead of ten days. POLICE COURT.-SATUBDA.T. [Magistrates: W. WILLIAMS, Esq., and the Rev. C. A. WILLIAMS.] A FRIENDLY SQUABBLE.—Lewis Richards was charged with having assaulted Mark Leigh, on the 20th instant. The parties expressing a wish to settle the matter, the case was dismissed on defendant paying 8s. 6d. expenses. THE GOYTREY AGAIN.-William Williams and William Cockin were charged with the non-payment of 18s. 4d. parochial rates. There was a dispute between the defen- dants as to the part each had to pay. The bench decided that Cockin should pay 12s. 2td. and Williams 6s. lid., and each pay 2s. expenses. THE GAME LAWS AGAIN !—Thomas Parry appeared on remand for having committed a trespass whilst in pursuit of conies. Defendant was dismissed with a caution. A TRUMPEBY CHARGE.—Alfred Neil was charged with having been drunk. This case arose from two greenhorns, or bluebottles, who were not very conversant with their new duties, seizing the defendant as he was proceeding in a light cart between Usk and little Mill, and accusing him of being drunk. It transpired that no name-board was affixed to defendant's cart, which gave Mr. Williams an opportunity of saying that defendant was liable to a fine of 40s. for such neghct. He had been charged, however, with being drunk, and he would be fined 14s. including expenses. STEEPLE CHABERS.-J oseph Priner and Robert Joliffe were charged with furiously riding through the public streets of Pontypool. Defendants were respectively ordered to pay lie. 6d. including costs. MASTER AND MAN.—A Farmer named Thomas, of the Pentovey farm, charged a male servant named Solomon Walters with deserting his service.—Complainant was ordered to forfeit 19s. 4jd. wages coming to him, and to pay 6s. expenses. WAGES CASE.—Joseph Lock was charged bv Henry Morgan with neglecting to pay him a balance of 18s. 2d. for wages. The defendant was ordered to pay the sum due together with 6s. 6d. expenses.—There was another case in which Joseph Rees was the complainant, against the same defendant; and in which he was ordered to pay the amount claimed wi'h 4s. expenses. BEER-HOUSE OFFENCE.—John Rosser, beer-house keeper in the parish of of Goytrey, was charged on the information of P.C. Lewis, No. 14, with having acted against his license by filling beer during prohibtited hours, on the 15th instant. The bench fined defendant 20s. including expenses. TRESPASSERS. — Mary and Catherine Brickley were charged on the information of P.C. Humphries with com- mitting a trespass on the ground of the Pontypool Iron Co., whilst looking for coal, on the 23rd inst. Defendants were ordered to pay 6. 6d. each including costs. W HITSU N TIDE J amps Jenkins was charged with having been drunk, at Llanover, on the morning of Whit. Monday. Defendant was discharged )n payment of 9s. fine and expenses. THE COAL AGAIN.—John Maddon and Edward Simons were charged with having committed a trespass on the ground of Messrs. Darby, Brown, and Co. whilst taking coal. Having promised to refrain from such pursuits for the future, they were dismissed, on paying 7s. each
CROSS BUCHAN. PETTY SESSIONS.—MONDAY. [Before S. R. BOSANQUET and J. A.

MONMOUTH COUNTY ELECTION. Yesterday week the nomination day of a person to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Col. Edward Somerset, one of the members for this county, took place. Col. Poulett Somerset, cousin to the late member, as our' readers are aware, was brought forward to fill the vacancy, and as it was expected no person appeared to contest the. seat. However a gentlemen well known in the political circles, as the chairman of the Ballot Society, E. Whiteburst Esq, was also nominated; but nothing further war attempted. At the hour appointed, The HIGH SHERIFF (E. M. Curre, Esq.,) presided. The writ having been read by the Under-sheriff (Mr. Toye,) and the usual invitation having been given, Mr. Bosanquet came forward to propose Mr. Poulet Somerset, as a fit and proper person to represent the county in Parliament, a scion of the most noble and ancient House of Beaufort (hear). After zealously and efficiently representing this county for eleven years, Col. E. Somerset their late member, had wisely and patriotically relihguished his seat, in order to devote himself more exclusively to the duties of his military profession, his great experience in which enabled him to afford valuable service to his country. After eulogising the kindness of manner, and sound judgement evinced by the late member in his inter- course with himself and other electors during his Parlia- mentary career, the speaker referred to the merits of Col. Poulett Somerset, who, be said professed the same poli- tical principles as his cousin, who had openly and with much spirit declared his views at the last election in this room. He need not refer to Col. Poulett Somerset's emi- nent military services in the Crimea, where he was engaged in all those dreadful engagements which brought so much honor and glory to this country On the occasion of the great battle of Inkerman he was on horseback by the side of Lord Raglan, as hi< aide-camp. A shell from the enemy embowelled the Colonel's horse under him, but he remained there invulnerable-like Achilles, and escaped unhurt, save the heel of his boot (great laughter). Since that Colonel Poulett Somerset had, at his own trouble and expense, raised a whole battalion of rifles, and bad been in command at Gibraltar for a considerable time. He now proposed to retire from his military duties, and to devote himself to serve the interests of the county of Monmouth (cheers and hisses). Mr. SAMUEL HOMFRAY seconded the nomination, and expressed his entire confidence in the fact, that the gallant colonel would conscientiously represent the county in Par- liament. Rev. T. THOMAS, D.D., Pontypool, then proposed Mr. Edward Capel Whitehurat, ot 6, Lower Belgrave-street, in the city of Westminster (loud cheers and hisses). He appeared before the electors to shew that the constituency was not dead and buried (hear). [A gentleman on the other side, with a clerical appearance, very rudely chal- lenged Mr. Thomas's right as an elector, a matter which was immediately set at rest on ihe rev. gentleman handine his card to the sheriff, the intruder drawing upon himself sundry marks of disapprobation.] The gentlemen first proposed would doubtless faithfully and honourably repre- sent the Ducal House of Beaufort, but he bad yet to learn whether he possessed any qualification to represent the constituency of this county (hear, cheers, and hisses), and judging from his published address, he (Mr. Thomas) had come to the conclusion that the gallant Colonel's political principles did not harmonise with the great body of electors (hear, cheers, and confusion). He objected to him on the ground that he was simply nominee of the House of Beaufort (cheers, and uproar), and the views be put forth were not such as might be expected from an enlightened gentleman in the second part of the nineteenth century (uproar) they were antiquated views — they were what might be called antedeluvian notions (great laughter and uproar), they did not belong to this age,nor preperly to thiscountry, but they would suit the soil of Austria better than that of England (cheers and hisses). Colonel P. Somerset advanced "the connection which his family bad enjoyed with the county as a kind of claim to the suffrages of the people. He (Mr. Thomas denied the inference entirely, and claimed priority to the qualification over family connection (cheers and uproar). The Colonel told them that he Has warmly at- tached to the glorious principles of the Reformation." Those principles were-liberty of judgement in all matters of religion-no domination of one party over another on account of religious views. He asked whether it was pos- sible for any man to maintain those principles, and continue the obnoxious and abominable impost of church-rates, which caused so much heart-burning andstrife amongst neighbours and :friends (hear, hear). The gallant Colonel had not given the slightest intimation that he would vote for the abolition of those rates. As to Parliamentary Reform, nothing could be more indefinite or more unsatisfactory than his professions. Would he promote a large extension of the suffrage, which was the best means of benefiting the working classes, whose claims he seemed to recognise (No, no"). Then he had omitted entirely the question of the ballot, without which the electors of this county could never exercise their rights (uproar). Was there one man in that assembly who from the depths of his soul could say that he did not need that protection P(great uproar). At present the electors received any member the house of Beaufort or or Tredegar chose to give them, and it would be well, under present circumstances, if the franchise were confined to those two aristocratic houses, for at least it would then be an honest return. The rev. speaker then referred to Mr. Whitehurst, as a gentleman of large liberal views, and a man who would represent them with efficiency (loud cheers). Mr. HENRY SHEPPARD, Mayor of Newport, in second- ing the nomination of Mr. Whitehurst, said that from time immemorial it had been held that it was unconstitutional for any peer to introduce or, by. coercion or otherwise attempt to thrust upon an electoral district a member of his own family (hear, hear). He must, therefore, enter his protest against the unconstitutional manner in which Colonel Poulett Somersethad been introduced to the electors of this county (cheers). 'The speaker then reminded the meeting of the following remarks made by Mr. W. A. Williams, of Llacgibhy, at a previous election, when the late lamented Lord Granville Somerset was a candidate. He would quote thrm, as they wIre specially applicable to the present case. Mr. Williams said The attempt to fix a nominee of the Duke of Beaufort upon the electors of Monmouthshire, was unworthy of the parties connected with such a movement.' On the first steps being taken in these proceedings we perceived that it clearly originated with the Duke of Beaufort. I say that a nomination by any family is unconstitutional, because the law is clear upon that point, that the electors have a right to elect their own canditate, and that it is unjust for any peer of the realm to interfere, and will any one be bold enough to come forward and state that the Duke of Beaufort ha- not interfered with the electors of this county." He (Mr. Sheppard) would aek Mr. Bosanquet and Mr. Homfray, both gentlemen of the highest respectability, how far they bad been consulted in this matter (hear, hear). It was evident to the Conserva- tives themselves even the present nominee system was any- thing but pleasant. Why did' not Col. P. Somerset give the electors an opportunity of hearing, his sentiments ? He admitted that the hon. gentlemen might have visited the towns, but as to giving an opportunity for calling a public meeting to explain his political views, that had not been done. Only a meagre circular bad been issueit—(confu- sion)—as to his deeds in the Crimea, far be it from him or his party to pluck one single laurel from his crown, but he could not help smiling at the terms in which Mr. Bosanquet had referred to his military services as a claim for the re- presentation of this county. He had told him the only accident Colonpl P. Somerset had sustained was the loss of his boot. But although his gallantry was too well known to be impeached by any thing be might say, still be could not help remarking that such an accident indicated a man run- ning away rather than facing the enemy (laughter). Mr. Sheppard then spoke of the political opinions of Mr. Whitehurst, and concluded by formally seconding the nomination. The SHERIFF asked if any other candidate was to be proposed, and, receiving no reply, Col. POULETT SOMERSET came forward, and after a few preliminary remarks, stated his views on the war and other subjects. Mr. E. C. WHITEHURST was received with cheers. He said the gallant colonel and his friend need not at all be alarmed, because he had no intention of going to the poll. Had the ballot been in operation, be might have been ena- bled to do so even against the House of Beaufort, but he availed himself of this constitutional opportunity of telling a little political truth. He then entered into the rights of electors and exposed the dictation under which the county laboured. The Rev. D. THOMAS then said that being satisfied] with the exposition which had been given, be would now with- draw his nomination of Mr. Whitehurst. Mr. WILLIAM CONWAY, of Pontypool, then asked several questions inreferance to churcb-rates, and extension of the suffrage, but the gallant Colonel positively refused 'o pledge himself in any way whatever. Hf would consider which way he should vote when the question came bafou Parlia- ment.
