llAGLAN. THB WARDENS' FETB.—The second fete of this kind for the season took place within the walls of the romantic ruing of Raglan Castle on Monday last. The company numbered from 1,400 to 1,600, and we may safely say it was one of the most respectable and comfortable gatherings that has taken place within the Castle this year. The new archery ground was thickly studded with dancers to the strains of the Monmouthshire Militia Band, whilst some hundreds of spectators were seated on the boundary of the ground. Dancing was kept up on the green sward until ten, when the party adjourned to the commodious tent, which became literally crammed, and where the enjoyment was continued an hour or so longer. During the afternoon the Earl and Countess of Minto inspected the ruins. SEEIOUS ACCIDENT.—As an omnibus from Abergavenny was passing through this village on the evening of Monday last, laden with visitors to the Warden's fete, the spokes of one of the wheels flew out, and the axletree coming to the ground, most of the outside passengers were thrown to the ground. We regret to learn that one of the party sustained a broken leg, another a dislocation of the shoulder, and a third a fracture of the ribs. It is said the vehicle was discovered to be in a cranky condition soon after leaving Abergavenny. If this were so the injured persons would seem to have good grounds for claiming compensation. AHOTHBE ACCIDENT.—At the Warden's fete, at the Costie, on Monday last, Mr. James Graham, auctioneer, of Monmouth, had the misfortune to break one or two of the small bones of his leg, by a fall, whilst taking part in some of the rustic sports. He is, however, wo are glad to hear, now progressing as favourably as can be expected.
