The Champion Liver & Stomach PILLS. THESE PILLS are compounded from the T recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the present day (who, from purely philanthropic motives- knowing their excellent properties by experience — has been induced to give the benefit of them to the public at large). They are prepared by an able and experienced chemist, and are acknowledged, by the faculty, to be the most valuable medicine for all disorders of the stomach, and derangements of the liver, ever prepared. It is a well-known fact that most of the diseases incident to the human race, arise from a disordered stomach, and irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple mala. dies, become serious illnesses. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the blessings of health, these pills are confidently and earnestly recommended. They act generally on the constitution, cleanse the blood of all impurities; regulate the secretions, and give tone to the stomach; correct the morbid condition of the liver, regulate the bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame.

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. BRISTOL BANKRUPTCY COURT.-OCT. 26.-Re D. Wil- liams, Abersychan, overlooker of navigators.—Mr. H. Brittan, Crown solicitor, offered no opposition, and the bankrupt passed his last examination, and was granted an order of discharge. RAILWAY ACCIDENT.—On Friday afternoon, as a London and North Western train was proceeding as usual from Hereford to Newport, it left the rails between the Tram Inn and St. Devereux stations. As soon as Mr. Brown, the guard in charge of the train, felt that something was wrong, he went to apply his break, but whilst in the act, a large coupling chain, suspended from a part of the van, struck him as it swung to and fro with the movements of the van on the rough road, and broke it. The engine ran into the ditch, throwing the tender across the line, and the third class carriage next to the tender was also upset, lying on its side across both the up and down lines. Although, of course, the whole of the passengers were; violently shaken none of them sustained any serious injury. The trafflc was impeded for several hours, but the line was cleared in time for the passing of the last passenger train from Worcester to Newport. A first-class Passenger," writing to the TIMES in reference to this accident, says, "Haying had considerable experience in these matters I examined the road. I was one of the first out of the train, and had an opportunity of doing so before the marks had been obliterated, and from its state I am only surprised that these accidents are not of more frequent occurrence. I should be sorry to be responsible for the safety of an engine and train travelling over the place at a greater speed than about 15 miles an hour." In the former part of his letter, he says that at the time the accident occurred the train was running at about from 30 to 35 miles an hour.
BLAENAVON. INQUEST.—On Saturday last, an inquest was held at the Railway inn, before E. Batt, Esq., coroner, on the body of Jane Davies, aged 53. Henry Davies, deposed- I am husband of deceased, and am occupied as ostler to one of the contractors; at half-past three on Friday morn- ing, my wife called cue to go to my work; I left her in bed and returned about half-past six. when I found her quite dead; she has been in a weak state of health for several years. Verdict-Died by the Visitation of God.
CAERLEON. WESLEYAN MISSIONS.—On Sunday last, a sermon was preached in the Wesleyan chapel, in this town, by the Rev. J. Williams, Baptist minister, of Pontheer, on behalf of the Foreign Missions of the Wesleyans; and on Monday evening, a public meeting was held on the same behalf. The Rev. J. Noel, of Newport, opened the meeting by prayer, and called upon Mr. Wansborough, of Newport, to preside over the meeting. The Rev. W. Spilsbury read the report for the past year, which stated that the amount subscribed and collected at Caerleon was £1 13s. The Revs. J. Noel and Spilsbury then addressed the meeting at great length, and at the close collections were received amounting to rather more than the previous year.
CWMCARVAN. PHILANTHROPIC INSTITUTION.—A new lodge, desig. nated the Loyal Cwmcarvan," (188), in connection with this very excellent and popular institution, was opened in this locality, on Wednesday sennight, at the New Inn public-house, kept by Mr. Thomas Jones. The initiatory ceremony was duly performed by P.G.M. James Hall, D.P.G.M. Henry Lloyd, and C.S. Henry Thomas, officers of the Pontypool district branch of the Order. A number of very respectable members were enrolled during the day, and the prospects of the new lodge augur well for perma- nent success, the names of several influential persons in the neighbourhood being on the list of candidates for mem- bership. The praiseworthy principles upon which the Philanthropic Order is founded, together with the superior character of the rules by which it is governed, strongly recommend the "Loyal Cwmcarvan" to the attention of the working-men of the neighbourhood who would wish to provide for the exigencies arising from sickness, old age, and death, and also to the patronage of those who hold a higher position in the social scale, and are solicitous to promote provident habits among their more humble neighbours. A dinner was provided for the occasion,which was both bountiful and excellent, consisting of a variety of substantial viands, for the preparation of which, the respected hostess received the most complimentary acknow- ledgements from the company.
ABERGAVENNY. PETTY SESSIONS, WEDNESDAY, before the Hon. W. P. RODNEY, and Rev. JAMES FARQUHAB. APPLICATION PCR SURETIES OF THE PEACH.—Sarah Williams, Llanvetherine, solicited the magistrates to bind Mary Sayce over to keep the peace towards her children, whom she had threatened in such a manner as to render them in bodily fear. It seemed that the parties were neighbours, and that the defendant had been provoked in consequence of complainant's children; stirring up and making dirty the water of a pool which she (the defendant) was going to use. The defendant denied that she had threatened the children, adding that this charge had been entered against her in consequence of spite, she having some time ago summoned the husband of complainant. Upon promising not to molest the complainant's children, the defen- dant was discharged with a reprimand. A FIGHT.-Cornelius Phinn, Abergavenny,was charged with having committed a breach of the peace. From the evi- dence of a police constable, it seemed that the defendant, who was drunk at the time, was seen in a fighting attitude in a public-house. The man with whom he was fighting rescued the defendant, but he was subsequently apprehended. The defen- dant, who has frequently figured in the dock on similar charges, was further charged with having, on Sunday morning, been drunk and riotous in Tudor street. In answer to the bench, Mr. Hoskins (defendant's master) gave his servant a good char- acter for steadiness and sobriety while at his work, upon which the bench mulcted him in the mitigated penalty of 5s., admon- ishing him as to his future conduct. A DANGEROUS PRACTICE.—Edwin Watkins and David Roberts were charged with rescuing the last defendant from the custody of the police. P.O. Dunn said that the defendants had forcibly attempted to rescue Phinn from him. an effort in which they subsequently succeeded. He (the police officer) pulled out his staff, but this increased the ire of the defendants, who com. menced a violent assault upon him, his hat being smashed and his coat torn in the struggle. The defendants, who axe related to Phinn, denied the charge, but the magistrates con- sidered the case made out, and looked upon it as one of a serious character. Supt. Freeman remarked that it was one of the worst rows that had taken place in Tudor-street for a long period. He did not see the assault, but the person who commu- nicated the intelligence of it to him, said, "There's a policeman being killed in Tudor-street." Upon arriving at the spot, he (the Superintendent) found that a mob of about two hundred persons had congregated together. The defendants were ad- monished, and fined 10s. each. STEALING STOCKINGs.-George Pearce, John Hayes, and Herbert Morgan, tramps, were charged with stealing a pair of stockings, the property of Mary Phillips, of Govilon. From the evidence it seemed that while prosecutor was at a neigh- bour's house, the prisoners carried away the property named. She communicated the circumstance to the police, the result being that the prisoners were apprehended on Wednesday, at Gilwern, when, in answer to the police, they said they were on the look-out for work, and that they were going to Tredegar. The officer accompanied them to that place, when he charged them with the offence. They said, in reply, that they knew nothing of it. The police officer, however, searched them, and. the stockings now produced, and which the prosecutrix had identified, were found on them. The prisoners were sentenced to six months hard labor each. POACHING.—David Evans, charged with trespassing in pursuit of game, on lands the property of W. W. Manning, Esq., of Coalbrook Park, was fined 20s., or, in default, 21 days haid labour.
