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.
