The Champion Liver & Stomach PILLS- THESE PILLS are compounded from the 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 iiscident 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, became 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, repuUto tbo bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to tlie whole frame. ————— TESTIMONIALS. Usk, January 28th, 1865. SIR,-r have been in the habit of taking the CHAMPION LIVER AND STOMACH PILLS for some years, and I can safely say they are the best medicine for Stomach Complaints that I have ever taken: and previously to their becoming known to me I had tried a great number of different kinds. They never fail in giving me instant relief, and having received so much benefit from their use, I think it but right that I should recommend them, as I do whenever I have opportunity. MARY WHITEFIELD. Castle Farm, Gwehelog, near Usk, March 26th, 1864. SIR,—I am glad to be able to bear testimony to the great efficacy of the CHAMPION LIVER AND STOMACH PILLS. Pre- viously to my being recommended to try them, I suffered much from Asthma, but since I have been in the habit of taking these pills, when I find an attack coming on I have only to take 1m" (iose to obtain certain and speedy relief, and by repeating the dose two or three times I am restored to my usual health. I am sure that these pills have saved me a vast amount of suffering, and I therefore, with pleasure, give you permission to make what, use you like of this testimonial, as, if it should be the means of inducing any persons affiicied as I have been to try the medicine, I shall feel that I have done them great service. To Mr. CLARK, Usk. THOMAS PRICE. Penarth, near Cardiff, 24th October, 1864. Mr. CLARK, Usk.—SIK,—I enclose 28 stamps, and shall be obliged if you will send me two boxes of the CHAMPION LIVER PILLS. You will think I am consuming a great quantity of them, from the number of boxes you have sent me; but the fact is, since I have been in this neighbourhood, I have recommended the pills to several persons here who suffer from biliousness, like myself, and they all agree that they never took anything that did them so much good. I think if the pills were sold in this neighbourhood, a great many more people would take to them, because they would be sure to recommend themselves. HENRY ELLIS. Gwehelog, near Usk, December, 1859. Srn,-After suffering for several years from acute pains in my side, back, chest, and stomach, and after calling in several medical men, and trying every remedy, I still suffered severely from the complaints. At length I was induced to try the CHAMPION LIVER AND STOMACH PILIJS, sold by you. The first box gave me great relief. I then purchased a second box, and it completely removed my coaiplaint, and I am now in perfect health. Having received so much benefit from these pills myself, I think that I am only doing a service to the public in recommending them. JOHN ROBERTS. To Mr. CLARK, Bookseller. Usk. Pontypool, January 20th, 1860. SIK,—For some years I suffered very much from an affection of the Liver. The medical men to whom I applied gave me pills which removed the complaint for a short time, but it returned as bad as after ever a week or ten days. Hearing of the CHAMPION PILLS, I resolved to try them, and I am happy to say, that after taking a few doses, I felt much better, and it is now three months since I have experienced any return of my old complaint. If I have the headache, or pain in the side or shoulders, I take a couple.of the CHAHTCON PILLS at night, and I feel all right the next day. WM. MORGAN. 5, Setlle's Buildings, New Swindon, Feb. 24,1863. STB,—I am wishful to inform you of the great benefit I have found from taking the CHAMPIOJI PILLS. From my childhood I have been much troubled with indigestion, which caused me great suffering, and I was never many days without it, until a friend gave me a few of these pills, which is the only medicine that gives me relief. MARIA RICHARDS. Llanbaddock, near Usk, Feb. 9, 1863. SIR,—I am very glad to be able to recommend the CHAMPION PILLS. I have tried everything I could think of for the Liver Complaint, but never found any medicine do me so much good as these cflls. Mark of X MARY ANN MERRIMAN. 16, Christian Street, Stockport, 15th Oct., 1862. GJR please forward me another box of the CHAMPION PILLS, for which I enclose fourteen stamps. I find them such an excellent medicine, not only for my.-tlf, but also for the whole ot mv family that I never like to be without some m the house, I believe you when you say they a-e the most valuable medicine for the Stomach and Liver ever prepared," for 1 have tried many different sorts of pills, but shall never want to change again while X can get these.

CHEPSTOW. THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD.At a meeting held at. the Local Board Office on Friday, the 18th inst.—present: Air. Thomas Perkins (chairman), and Messrs. John Sharp, John Hall, Richard Hawkesford, Thomas Sargent, W. P. Thomas, and John Morgan—after the minutes of the last meeting had been read and signed, the Surveyor said be should require 94 12s. for the payment for labour during the next fortnight, and a cheque was accordingly drawn. The Surveyor reported that Messrs. Finch and Heath had completed their contract for the supply of iron kerbing, and a cheque was drawn for the amount ot their bill. The inhabitants in vestry having requested the Local Board. to perform the duties of the Burial Board, and the Local Board having consented so to do, if they legally could, a petition to the Privy Council tor an order to enable them to perform such duties was signed and sealed. Other routine business was transacted, and the meeting adjourned. EXCURSION FROM SWANSEA.—On Monday last a heavily laden excursion train came from Swansea to Chepstow. The visitors arrived here about 11 o'clock in the morning, and the greater part took conveyances and made their way to the Wyndcliff and the beautiful ruins of Tiutern Abbey, where they spent a very pleasant day, whilst others re- mained in the town. The excursionists, we understand, arrived home safely with one exception. About two miles below Chepstow, whilst a boy of about ten years of age was looking out through the window of one of the car- riages and leaning against the door, it suddenly flew open, throwing him out ppon the embankment. He was stunned and much shaken, and was afterwards picked up by an up goods train and brought to Chepstow, and left in the waiting room of the station. Thomas King, Esq., surgeon, being sent for, was immediately on tne spot, and ren- dered every assistance. The poor boy received such a severe blow on the head from the fall that but faint hopes were given of his recovery.
ABERSYCHAN. MISSIONAP-T SOCIETY.—We observe that A meeting will be held on the evening of Monday next at the British School-room, in aid of the British and Foreign Bible Society, the Rev. Dr. James, of Panteg, attending, as deputation. This society deserves every encouragement from members of the Church of England, as well as from dissenters gene- rally. Its claims upon the religious world are great, and its operations exceed that of any similar institution. We anticipate a good meeling, as the rev. d putation is as popular here as elsewhere, and will, we feel assured, make an eloquent appeal in aid of the missions.
GARNDIFF AITH. FORESTERS' ANNIVERSARY.—The lodge of the ancient order of Foresters meeting at Host and Brother Rees Jcnes's, of the Hanbury Arms Inn, held their annual. feast on Monday. Headed by the Abertillery brass band, and with twenty-six members mounted on horseback, decorated in the picturesque Robin Hood style, they marched (about 150 strong) through Abersychan, calling at the residence of Joseph Williams, Esq., and at Mr. Richards', White Hart Inn, and afterwards marched back, calling upon Edward Jones, Esq., of Rock Villa, to their lodge-room, where they sat down to a dinner served with good taste, and abundant in quantity, by Host Jones. After dinner a pleasant evening was spent, the speakers advocating and dwelling upon the advantages of this and kindred societies. The chair was taken by illr. Charles Herbert, who was ably supported by Brother Jacob Wil- liams, C.R., in the vice-chair. This lodge now numbers 170 members, and its funds are, we believe, in a prospe- rous state.
MONMOUTH. POORS' RATE.-A rate for the relief of the poor, at lq. in the pound, was granted for this parish by the magis- trates in petty sessions, on Saturday last. FIRE.-On the morning of Monday last, a fire broke out in the warehouse of Mr. James Edmonds, St. Mary Street. The warehouse, which arijoins t be premises of Mr. Joseph Addis, green-grocoT, bad not been entered since the pre- vious Saturday, the origin of the fire therefore, up to the present time, a mystery. The fiff-bell was rung at five o'clock, and Mr. Superintendent Wheeldon and the fire-brigade were quickly on the spot, with the engines, together with a great many of the neighbours, who Ireely opened their doors and allowed a good supply of water to be carried from their pumps and water butts, the result of which was that in about half an hour the flames were got under. It has bsen ascertained that grocery goods to the value of about £ 14 or £15 have been damaged. Too much credit cannot be awarded to the active Superintendent, who exerted himself to the utmost on the occasion. BOROUGH POLICE.—Two cases of wife-beating were brought before the bench during- the week, and both. offenders were bound over to keep the pence. A charge of drunkenness and another of vagrancy were disposed of in the usual way.
LLANG0 YEN. HOUSEBREAKING.—On the tort-noon of Saturday last, a cottage occupied by a blacksmith of the name of Pritchard, in this parish, was entered, during the absence of the family, by two tramps, and 5s. m money and two pocket- handkerchiefs stoleu therefrom. On the same evening a shirt was taken from the garden hedge of John Davies, in the parish of Gwernesney, it is supposed, by the same 1n- dividuals. Pritchard saw the men coming from his cottage, when they said they had merely been to the door to ask for lights tor their pipes, but he did not discover his loss until the scamps had got clear off. They were, however, traced through Usk and Pontypool to Abergavenny where one of the men was captured in bod at a lodging :">.oase, together with two women who accompanied him, by Sapt.Llewellin, at an early hour on Monday morning. 'i'he shirt and one: of the handkerchiefs were afterwards found pledged at Pontypool, and the prisoners stand remanded until Friday (this day), when they will be taken before the magistrates at Usk.

gIK) Allow me to correct an error which appeared in your impression of last week respecting the monster pic-nic at Caet- leon. Your esteemed correspondent, after speaking of the various amusements, contemptuously added that there were only 300 people on the field, whereas I confidently assert there were 600 there—nearly 350 sat down to tea. I hope, for the future, that my esteemed friend will confine himself to the truth, then the public will better appreciate his reports. I am, yours obediently, Caerleon, August 22nd, 1865.
