NiiWpouT.—O11 Monday night last a fire broke out in the Three Horse Shoes public house in this town, Fortunately it was discovered by a gentleman who hap- pened to be passing, and who immediately alarmed the inmates, who had about two hours before retired to rest. e have not heard the extent of the damage. The fire was soon got under through the praiseworthy exertions of the inhabitants. For several days past, hay making has been completely retatded in the neighbourhood ol Newport, in consequcnce of the wet weather. On f uesday last a great many people visited Newpoi", by the s earners, from Bristol; and we are told that it was in consequence of a cheap train having been started, so as to enable the inhabitants of Birmingham to have a to and fro journey to our town. PRESENTATION OF PLATE TO THE DUKE OE BEAU- FORT'S WHIPPERS-IN.—Our readers will, no doubt, remember that William Long, the huntsman of his Grace the Duke of Beaufort, was presented wi h a piece of plate about twelve months since. The gentlemen meet- ing with the Duke have now come forward to the number of about 270, with subscriptions to present the whippers- in with a piece of plate, for their civil and energetic conduct in the field.— Monmouthshire Beacon. We are credibly informed that the proposed Hereford, Abergavenny, and Newport Railway Company have completed their arrangements for the purchase of the Monmouthshire Canal Company's tram-roads and canals, and that a large deposit has been made in town this week to bind the bargain. We have not heard what effect this arrangement may have upon the progress of the Newport and Pontvpool Railway Bill, so recently passed by the committee, as to whether the same will be now abandoned or not. The arrangement, we conceive, is well calculated to give the greatest satisfaction to the iron and coal- masters of Monmouthshire.—Mining Joitrnnl. THE Newport and Pontypool Railway Hill was read a third time and passed in the House of Commons 011 Monday last.

STEAM TO CHEPSTOW.—We perceive that Messrs. Southan and Evans, of Gloucester, the spirited owners of the screw steamer Clara, have placed that vessel on the station between Gloucester and Chepstow-one of the most delightful trips with which we are acquainted. THE TRACY PBEItAGE.-The report was signed and left at the Home Office for her Majesty on Saturday last, the 28th instant, and will be referred to the House of Lords.
