ltlOJIUO UT nSHIRE. Wn regret, most sincerely, to have to announce the death of George Morgan, Esq., second son of Sir Charles Morgan, Bart., of iredegar Park, in this county-a gentleman possessing the most excellent and amiable qualities, and whose loss will be extensively felt. This distressing event took place on Monday last at the de- ceased gentleman s residence, Brickendenbury, Hertford- shire, and has, as niaj naturally be imagined, caused the deepest pain to all who had the pleasure of being acquainted with him. In the GUARDIAN of the 2nd of August, we stated that the deceased had met with a severe accident, by falling into a deep well at Biddlesben Park, Bucks; but whether the injuries he then sustained contributed towards his death we are not in a position to state. FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT TO COL. LASCELLES, OF THE GRENADIER GUARDS. Monday afternoon, between two and three o'clock, an accident, attended with serious con- I sequences, occurred in South-street, Grosvenor-square, to Col. Lascelles of the Grenadier Guards, a cousin of the Earl of Harewood,& nephew of Sir Charles Morgan, Bart. of Tredegar Park, in this county. The unfortunate gentle- man, who is ot a very corpulent habit, was riding a spirited horse, when in turning the corner of Park-street the animal stumbled, and the gallant officer was thrown violently to the ground, the left side of his face coming in collision with the kerb stone. On being raised from the ground he was found to be completely insensible, and the left eye was forced from its socket and lay exposed on his cheek; he was immediately conveyed to his residence in Upper Grosvenor-street, where he still remains in a very precarious state. A MAN met with a serious accident at the screw steam er's wharf, Newport, on Saturday evening, and which is partly, if not wholly, to be attributed to the carelessness of a person named Davies, who was at the time on board the steamer. A SCENE. On Saturday last, information was con- veyed to the police-station, Newport, that a man serving on board one of the steamers had, on Friday, induced a very young woman (16 years of age) to leave her father's roof at Bedminster, Bristol, and to accompany him to Newport. Her father and brother arrived in town on Saturday with the view of prevailing upon her to return home. After an enquiry of some considerable duration, they ascertained the place of her abode, and, on proceed- Ulg to the spot, found the object of their solicitude alone. At first she positively refused to listen to any proposal respecting home-shed copious tears—vowed "she would have him," &e.; but, ultimately, measures were taken the purpose of ensuring submission on her part, and sne.accompanied her father and brother to Bristol. DARING BURGLARY.—On Monday night, the 22d inst., person or persons entered the dairy of Dyflfryn Kedwas, in this county, and stole therefrom five loaves of bread, a iaige quantity of butter, cheese, &c.

It 13 supposed that they took the pike from the barn for the Purpose of attacking any one who should oppose tiiem however, it happened that none of the inmates were disturjjed. A general search is now taking place by w i'Ce and const;ables of the neighbourhood, but up to VVedtjes(jay night they had not been discovered.
