THE CARDIFF AND MERTHYR GUARDIAN.
THE CARDIFF AND MERTHYR GUARDIAN. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 10, 1845. THE RHONDDA AND ELY VALLEYS JUNCTION RAIL- WAY.—We are given to understand that a veiy important and influential meeting of the provisional committee of this railway, took place on Monday, at the Bulland Mouth, St. Martin's-le-Grand, London. Resolutions vere entered into to proceed with every diligence in the prosfcution of the line, so that this important district may have what it has really for years required, easy and cheap access to the best ports in the Bristol Channel. This undertaking, as one of the important tributaries to the Great South Wales Railway, promises well it is received with great favour by the London merchants, as a proof of which. the applications from the great coal owners and coal dealers are numerous and pressing. No applications for shares can, we understand, be received after the 10th of this month, and the allotment of the shares will follow in a few days. By the time these Valleys, together with that of Neath and the important Cwms, as they are called, of the Garw, the Ogmore, and Llynfi, are open, the posi- tion of Glamorgan (and especially that ot the port of Cardiff) will vie with the richest and most important county in Great Britain. The resources are immense, and when Staffordshire and some of he northern coal fields are exhausted and silent, Glamorgai will be teem- ing with an immense population, greit wealth, and boundless resources for the safety and prosperity of the country. The Very Reverend William Daniel Conykeare, Dean of Llandaff, preached at the Cathedral Church m Sunday morning last, from the latter part of the 24th vurse of the 11th chapter of St. Paul's 1st Epistle to the Co:inthians —" This do in remembrance of me." The sernon was in every respect well worthy of the high staton and talents of the very reverend gentleman, and was heard with the most devout attention by the congregation We understand that in the afternoon the very reverent gen- tleman delivered a most impressive and edifying discourse from the 37th Psalm, verse 5-11 Commit thy wayunto the Lord trust also in Him; and He shall bringit to PAROYAL GLAMORGAN STAFF.—On Saturday last, Ser- geant Major Jenkins and five sergeants, were inspected in this town by Lieut. Colonel Spencer and Mr. Brown, Surgeon, both of the 37th regiment of foot. The ap- pearance of the men was satisfactory in the higiest degree; and the gallant officers warmly complimented the Sergeant Major upon the creditable manner in wlich he and his comrades had met the inspection, the objec. of which is said to be the invaliding of the ineffective men. STATISTICS OF CARDIFF Us ION.—Within the twelve- months ending June 30th last, 149 marriages were solemnized in the Church of England, and 99 in various licensed chapels and by the Registrar. During the same period, 910 births and 80] deaths were registered. The population of the district, which now comprises the Union, in 1831, was 24,992; and in 1841 it was 32,617, showing an increase in ten years of 7,625. ROBBERY IN THE BUTE DOCKS. — Information was received at the police station-house, on Wednesday, that the brig Hope, of Newcastle, had been entered on the previous night, and six £ 10 notes abstracted from a sort of desk or chest which was in th3 cabin. We believe the chest was also carried away, and that it was found near the Bute Docks in the course of Wednesday. The master, Mr. Charles Nixon, has no memorandum of the numbers of the notes, but the most effective measures have I been taken in order to lead to the apprehension of the I thieves. STATE OF TRADE.—We are happy to state that the shipping trade of this port is in a most flourishing state- the Bute Docks exhibiting tiers of vessels moored from one extremity to the other. There is also a large num- ber in the Glamorganshire Canal. It has been mentioned to us that so great is the demand for coal, that an increase in the price may possibly take place but this is mere rumour. WE observe from the Inverness Courier, that Nash V. E. Vaughan, Esq., of Rheola, and his friend R. Creyke, Esq., bagged upwards of six hundred brace of grouse, besides killing four roe deer and four stags, during their late shooting excursion at Corrimony, in the Highlands of Scotland. Advices from Hobart Town, of the 8th May. state that rather a serious outbreak had occurred among the in- mates of the Van Uieman's Land establishment for the insane and that loss of life would have ensued but for the wonderful" authority of Williams, the well-known Chartist, who holds a situation there, and at whose sim- ple bidding the infuriated maniacs are stated to have quietly surrendered their weapons. RAILWAY SCRUTINY.—We have often heard it observed that there was a great want of a journal which should prove a safe and sure guide to the public in their railway Investments; an object which could only be achieved by a strict sifting and scrutiny of the immense mass of pro- jects which daily rise up to the perplexity of honest speculators and the great profit of schemers. This aesideratum appears to be afforded by THE RAILWAY CRITIC (and Shareholder s Adviser), of which the chief, and the original feature, is, the impartial examination of p all railway projects, with a stern and tinspwing censure of everything approaching to imposture, and a resolution I to keep terms with no schemes but such as are of a solid, stable, and steady character. Let any one look at the prodigious number of railway plans which solicit his patronage, and he will then readily understand the ad- vantages of this severe criticism, and appreciate its dis- criminating and detecting effects. Commercial travellers who visit South Wales have much cause to rejoice at the interference with the turn- pike tolls in Glamorganshire the obnoxious charge at Rumney-bridge, near Cardiff, is done away with, and the tolls in that county reduced one half. Near Merthyr the reduction is striking, the charge there for a horse and gig is about one third what it was a few months ago. Fron Crickhowell to Hay there were five gates, 9d. each, b' now three at 6d. It is a positive fact, that the re;8 were the worst where the tolls were the highest; t> 18 proved by comparing the Brecon trust with the Pont001* —Bristol Mirror.. -Bristol illirpor.

DETERMINED SUIClDE.-The tB troop of the Sixth or niskillen Dragoons arrived at Cardiff from Carmarthen Thursday forenoon, under the command of Capt. White. vvnust at Lilanelly, on Monday, John liarr, LIIC smith at- tached to the troop, committed suicide in the most deter- mined manner by discharging the contents of his carbine into his mouth, thereby causing instantaneous death. A correspondent, after stating at greater length the foregoing particulars connected with this dreadful occurrence, pro- ceeds :—" The deceased was billetted at the Barley Mow public-house, and within five minutes of his awful end he was conversing freely, and with the greatest uncon- cern, with a comrade: indeed, throughout the day, nothing particular was observed in his demeanour with the exception that he seemed rather more cheerful than usual. I am informed that he was married on Sunday morning last at Carmarthen, to a young woman of that town and it is also said-but this statement you must receive with caution, as it is mere rumour-that certain circumstances connected with his marriage may have so operated upon his mind as to induce him to commit the desperate act of self-destruction. What these circum- stances are has not been clearly stated, but something to the following effect was current on Tuesday- After his marriage on Sunday, some good-natured friend took the opportunity of endeavouring to blast the happi- ness of the young people by spreading a report that Karr was already a married man, and bad a wife and three children living. This soon reached the ears of his young wife, and thereupon, as you may imagine, a scene ensued which ended in the awful tragedy of Monday night. But as I before stated, all I know to be true is that the poor fellow shot himself, and that his death was instantane- ous." We believe it is true that the unhappy man was married on Sunday at Carmarthen but we have not been able to ascertain any further particulars that can be relied upon. The deceased was a well-conducted man-bad had no unpleasant words with either of his companions -and had not been censured for misconduct by any one. GLAMORGANSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS.—The Michael- mas Quarter Sessions for this county will commence at the Town-hall, Swansea, at one o'clock, P.M., on Monday next, when the county business" will be transacted.

CARDIFF POLICE.—MONDAY. [Before Henry Morgan, Esq.] Charles Alder, a young man of respectable appearance, Was charged by Mr. Benjamin Griffith Williams, master of the barque Lady Mary, of Carnarvon, with having deserted the vessel. Mr. Williams, having been sworn, said—The defendant engaged with me to serve as mate on board of my vessel on Saturday, the 27th of September, and was to receive for his services £4 per month. He entered on his services on the afternoon of the same day. On the Monday following I paid him E4 in advance on account. He absented himself from his service 011 board at seven o'clock on Tuesday evening. He returned on board on Thursday afternoon. We had not completed loading, and it was his business to be on board to look after the men. I brought him up before Mr. Stockdale, and it was arranged that I should take him back provided he stopped on board and did his duty. On Friday after- noon he again left the ship, and has not been on board since. I did not give him leave to go he never asked me. I saw him washing and dressing himself; and as I thought he would go ashore, whether or no, I said— "Now, young man, you know you have absented yourself before,-mind early hours this time." I will," said he, and then left the ship.-Defendant, who seemed to feel that he had got into an awkward situatiou, said that he did not intend to desert the ship; he intended to go the voyage in her still, if he should. On Saturday evening the master met him and said, "Are you going a-boardt" Defendant said he was. "Well, then," said the master, "we'll walk up street together, as I want to buy some- thing, and then we'll go on board." Both walked along till they got to the police-station, upon which the master suddenly pushed defendant in, and gave him in charge as a deserter.—Mr. Morgan said the defendant had behaved very ill; and he (Mr. Morgan) would instantly commit him to prison for one month if the master asked him to do it.—Mr. Williams said it was of no use for him to think of taking such a character again on board, as he would be of no service whatever, and therefore be brought him before the magistrates.—A master mariner said defendant had sailed with him for nine months upon a former occasion, and had conducted himself very well.- Ultimately it was arranged that defendant should repay Mr. Williams the sum of £4 which he had received—pay the costs (7s.), and then be discharged.—Paid. Mr. Daniel Andrews, clerk to the Messrs. Parry, ship- brokers, entered the room and said he wished to have the magistrate's assistance under these circumstancesThe Lady Hardy, of Plymouth, was in the Bute Docks, ready for sea. The master had grossly neglected his duty—had been drunk for several days; and therefore the Messrs. Parry had written to the owners of the vessel, or their agent, and had fully informed them of the circumstance in order to have instructions how to proceed, as the Messrs. Parry were the agents for Cardiff. In due course of post a let- ter came with directions that the master should be in- stantly discharged—a new master appointed—and the vessel proceed without further delay on her voyage. These instructions were partially carried out, but now the late master refused to give up the vessel's register, and consequently she could not be sent to sea. The register was not in the vessel, and the late master refused to give it up, or to say where it was deposited. It was a serious thing for the owners, as the freighters were about to enter a protest on account of the delay. The vessel was bound for Hamburgh; and if she could not be sent out this evening it was probable that she would be delayed for some days, as the tides were falling. There were two vessels in the docks in this dilemma. A summons was instantly issued against the late master. [He was taken in the course of the day, and by the application of a little judicious pressure was induced to give up the register, after which he was discharged.] [Before H. Morgan, Esq., and the Rev. T. Stacey.] John Morgan and William Latvson were charged by Evan Lloyd with having employed a boy to ascend chim- neys, for the purpose of sweeping them, contrary to law. Case dismissed. Mr. Richard Chandy, fishmonger, charged a Mrs. Thomas, a person who sells fruit in the market, with an assault. Case dismissed. William Phipps, a notorious character, was convicted in the penalty of ten shillings, exclusive of costs, for assaulting Elizabeth Freeman in default of payment to be imprisoned for one month.
MERTHYR AND NEIGHBOURHOOD.
MERTHYR AND NEIGHBOURHOOD. WORCESTER & MERTHYR-TYDVIL J TACTION RAILWAY. — In our fourth page will be found a full report of the proceedings at. the public meeting held at the Castle Hotel, on Friday last, which meeting was convened for the purpose of taking into consideration which of the pro- posed lines of railway from Merthyr to Abergavenny will be most desirable for the interests and convenience of this highly-important town and neighbonrhood. The proceedings were throughoutcharacterized by the greatest unanimity and good feeling. GREAT EASTERN AND WESTERS RAILWAY.—This company, we are informed upon good authority, contem- plate the formation of a branch line, which, leaving the main line at Abergavenny, will proceed nearly to Mon- mouth-probably to Gloucester. This branch (if estab. lished), in connection with the company's other projects, will probably give to Merthyr-Tydvil, Abergavenny) Brecon, and most of the towns upon the hills of Mon- mouthshire—namely, Tredegar, Nantyglo, Llanelly, &c., the nearest route to London. THE HARVEST.—We regret sincerely to have to report that large quantities of corn still remain uncut in the hilly parts of this and the adjoining county. Potatoe gathering has been partially commenced. DEATH BY DROWNING.—A little girl, aged four years and a half, the daughter of William Price, of Coed-y- cymmer, fell into a deep well near her parents' residence last Sunday afternoon, and was drowned. CYFARTHFA NEW MILL.—This stupendous building is nearly under cover. It is the largest of the kind in Europe. ABERDARE.—The Wesleyan Methodists' tea party, held at the Town Hall last week was very numerously at- tended. All sects and parties seemed to forsake their peculiarities in one common bond of union, at least as far as tea-drinking was concerncd and the able addresses delivered at the close, were worthy the Christianity which all in common profess. About a mile and a half of the Aberdare Valley Railroad is in a state of forwardness. The late wet weather has been very prejudicial to the interests of the contractors. Scores of workmen's cot- tages are being built between the town and Aberaman, on both sides of the turnpike road leading to the basin. PEDESTRIANISM.—On Saturday evening, the 27th ult. a foot-race took place at Craig-y-berthlwyd, near Quaker's Yard, between William Lewis, alias Pontrhydyfen, and Thomas Jones, alias Milgi-min-y-mynydd, for the sum of £ 10 a side—distance two miles. Rhydyfen was the winner. MERTHYR POLICE.—MONDAY, OCT. 6th. [Before W. Meyrick and E. M. Williams, Esqrs.] William Morgan was charged by William John with non-payment of wages amounting to 16s. 8d. It seemed that complainant had summoned the wrong party; the case was consequently dismissed, and complainant was ordered to pay 5s. 6d. the expenses. William Hudson and Edward Jenkins, who had been remanded on the previous Monday on a charge of aiding in the robbery of Thomas Jones, at Pontstorehouse, were brought into court by Mr. Superintendent Hemer. The witness, George Smith, was examined, and his evidence read over, but to it he had no observation or addition to make. The prisoners vehemently denied Smith's asser- tions, one of them saying, I should as well go to the place where Dick Tamar was, as to be sent to gaol inno- cent." However, they were committed for trial. Hudson asked for a pint of beer to each of them before going down to Cardiff, which was allowed to them. The Dowlais Iron Company were charged with detain- ing from certain workmen at one of their furnaces the sum of JE6. David Lewis sworn: -1 am in the employ of the Dowlais Iron Company. The wife of one of the workmen at the furnace generally goes for our money on pay-day.' I saw her on that day, and because of the crowd and rush she could not get on. I said, Give me the card, and I'll go instead of you." I went, and put the card in, & Mr. Frederick Evans reckoned £ 9218s. Id. into my hands. I went away, and a person told me there was JM deficient. I went back, and informed Mr. Evans of the mistake.—From the accounts, which were handed to the magistrates, they were convinced that the money had been paid, but not paid to the right parties, and attributed it entirely to mistake; and they recommended that the Dowlais Company should pay the remainder, as it was a pity the workmen should be sufferers. William Williams was charged with being drunk and disorderly, and breaking the door of a public-house. Ordered to pay 7s. damages, and 5s. 6d. costs. John White was brought into court by Mr. Superin- tendent Hemer, charged with breaking a pane of glass in the window of a tradesman in Victoria-street. —Mr. Meyrick: Well, you hear the charge against you.—De- fendant: I did it purposely, your worship. I have no victuals, nor any place to go to, and can't have work any where.—Ordered to pay Is. 6d. damages, and 7s. costs or, in default of payment, two weeks' imprisonment. COWBRIDGE.—On the 28th of September last, being Michaelmas Eve, the capital burgesses and burgesses of the borough of Cowbridge, met to elect bailiffs for the ensuing year, when John Bevan, Esq., and the Rev. Thomas Edmondes were returned as the new bailiffs. N.B. The Constable of the Castle of Lanblethian and the bailiffs of Cowbridge, are (by charter) ex officio justices of the peace for the borough of Cowbridge. COKONEK'S INQUEST.—An inquest was held at the King's Arms, Bridgend, on Wednesday last, before C. R. Vachell, Esq., on the body of Charlotte Williams, aged 55, wife of Robert Williams, labourer. It appeared from the evidence that the deceased had been in a depressed state of mind for two or three days before her death. On Monday morning, about II o'clock, she left her house, and was met by a neighbour walking in a hasty manner, and with unusual wildness in her looks, along the West- ville road. Her friend accompanied her for a short dis. tance, when she turned off from the road into a field, through which is a pathway, near the Ogmore river, to Newbridge farm-house. Her neighbour asked her if she was going to Newbridge she replied, No, I am not going much further." She was found the next morning, after a search of many hours, in the river, near Newbridge. The jury returned a verdict "that the deceased had drowned herself while suffering from temporary derange- ment of mind." NEATII.—On Wednesday week an inquest was held at the Cross Keys Inn, Skewen, before Alexander Cuth- bertson, Esq., oa view of the body of William Thomas, aged 18 years, who was accidentally killed while at work in Mr. John Parsons' coal works by the falling of a mass of coal. Verdict, "Accidental Death." NEATH CHURCH.—On Sunday, the 28th September, the Rev. H. H. Knight preached a most impressive ser- mon, under the direction of the Queen's letter, for the relief of the Quebec sufferers from the late disastrous fire. The rev. gentleman took his text from part of the 32nd verse of the 4th chapter of Ephesians: And be ye kind unto one another, teuder-hearted, forgiving one another." The sum collected amounted to nine pounds. [This paragraph was unavoidably omitted last week.] NEATH PETTY SESSIONS. [Heard by Frederick Fred- ricks, Esq., and Howel Gwyn, Esq.]—Michael Donovan was charged by P.C. Wright with having been drunk and disorderly. Fined lis. 6d., including costs Bartholomew Colley was fined 5s. and costs, for a similar offence.—David W. Morris, of the Skewen, was ordered to pay forthwith the amount of poor's rates due by him, together with the costs of these proceedings. Messrs. Jevons and Wood were charged with having refused to pay the amount due by them as poor's rates. Defendants pleaded that they were too highly assessed. Previous to the erection of their second furnace they were rated at £50; but now, for the two furnaces, a sum of £200 was demanded. The magistrates confirmed the charge made against the defendants, but advised the parties to endea- vour to arrange matters amicably previous to the next rate becoming due. Mr. Cuthbertson appeared for the parish officers, and Mr. Randall for the defendants. SWANSEA SAVINGS BANK. — Saturday, Oct. 4th, 1S45. Amount of deposits received, JE287 17s. 6d.; ditto repaid, £ 87 Os. Id.; notices to withdraw, JE240 10s. Id. Manager, Mr. J. W. Clark. SWANSEA FAIR, 6TH INST.—Wool went off very briskly, at from Is. to Is. 4d. per lb.; horses and horned cattle met with very few purchasers, and, owing to unfavourable weather, they were driven off early in the afternoon. AMATEUR REPORTERS."—A notion has lately grown up among the more vulgar and ignorant persons con- nected in any way with newspapers, that, by that con- nection, they are at liberty to claim a social rank, to which they are not entitled by education, property, man- ners, or talents that a newspaper can, like a university, confer degrees on its labourers, or, like the Crown itself, bestow honours which the public must recognise. No- thing can be more injurious than this to the many really respectable persons connected with the press, who are thus represented and annoyed by an obtrusive class as unlike them as possible—nothing can be better calculated to rivet the degradation of the whole press, which suffer in an indiscriminate public contempt, the penalty justly incurred by vulgar pretension.—Morning Herald of Mon- day. SWANSEA PETTY SESSIONS. —[Held on Tuesday, 7th instant, before T. Edw. Thomas, Esq., Rev. John Collins, and Wm. Martin, Esq.]—John Bluett, Benjamin Beynon, and Richard Eaton were charged with having indecently assaulted Mary Rees, widow, and her daughter, on the public road near the Mumbles. The charge was chie8y against B. Beynon, who being called upon for his de- fence, said he had none to offer, only that he was very drunk; and was extremely sorry he had so acted as to have given offence to any one. The other two spoke in a similar manner. The magistrates said, that according to circumstances they could not have made a better defence, and that their conduct then before them seemed in accordance with their language. They were fined in the mitigated sum of 5s. each, which, with the costs, amounted to 13s. 2d. each. Paid immediately.
BRISTOL DISTRICT BANKRUPTCY COURT.—[Before Mr Commissioner Stevenson.—Wednesday, October 1.] COKE tI. THOMAS and ANOTHER. The Commit si oner will only require sufficient evidence to satitfy himself that plaintiff has a judgment, and will not in all cases require strict formal proof of the judgment by production of the record. Where the, record of the judgment is flot produced, an affidavit from the plaintiff is required that he has recovered such a judg- ment, and that it is stilt unsatisfied. The last clause in the Act confining its operation to England, does not, by implication, exclude Wales. "'he Court teili make tin order on the defendants, with costs, where they unnecessarily required the attendance of the plaintiff on the summons. Homes appeared as counsel for the plaintiff in this case, and produced an affidavit of personal service of the summons on the two defendants, and called for the defendants. Mr. Leman, solicitor, said that the defendants were in eourt, and he appeared for them, and he required plaintiff to prove his judgment. Homes submitted that the inquiry as to the existence of the judgment was for the consideration of the Commissioner or Court, before the summons was granted, and that the summons being once granted, the only course was to hear the case ac- cording to the directions of the statute. His Honour.-I have consulted with my colleague, Mr. Sergeant Stephen, and we have agreed to assume the existenoe of the judgment on the application for the summonsps by petition in the usual form, and to perm t the defendants to dispute it, or require proof of it on the hearing ofthe summ ins. Home, then produced a certificate sigued fc C. B. Mansfield, county clerk," to the effect that the plaiutiff in this action had recovered judgment against the defendants for £ 6 debt and £ 4 4s. costs, in the county court of Glamorgan, by writ or jus tides, To this certHicate was annexed an affiùavit verifying the county clerk's signature. Homes submitted that this was sufficient evidence of the judgment to satisfy any reasonable man of its existence. Mr. Sergeant Stephen had decided on construing the Act liberally, and had not required in all cases strict formal proof of the judgment, where he was satisfied by secondary evidence that it existed. His Honour.—I shall require an affidavit from the plaintiff that he has recovered such a judgment, and that it remains in force. With such an affidavit, in addition to the present evidence, I shall consider the judgment as proved to my satis- faction, and allow the case to go on. The affidavit being handed in, Leman required that the plaintiff should be present in person. Homes.—He is here, ready to be examined. Leman.—This is a case from Wales. The Small Debts Act does not apply to Wales; the 25th section expressly enacts that it shall only apply to England. Homes.—England includes Wales as far as any Act of Parlia- ment is concerned. There is an express enactment that Act* stated to apply to England shall include Wales. His Honour.—Can you mention the statute ? In Stephen's Blackstone, vol. I, p. 88, I find that where England only is mentioned in an Act of Parliament, the same notwithstanding shall be deemed to comprehend Wales but the commentator refers to the 20 Geo. 2, c. 42, s, 3, On looking at that statute, I find there must be a mistake, for the Act referred to applies to house and window lights. Homes.—The mistake is not in Sergeant Stephen's Black- stone only, but in all the other editions. Coleridge's edition gives the same erroneous reference so does the original edition of Mr. Justice Blackstone. His Honour-—I am satisfied of the existence of the statute, and have no doubt in my own mind that the Small Debts Act applies to Wales. It was arranged that defendants should pay the debt and costs by instalments of £ l per month. Homes applied for costs. The plaintiff had been required to attend to be examined personally; the defendants might have settled the case out of court, or waived the plaintiff's attend- ance. He has come all the way from Neath. His Honour.—I have the power to give costs in all matters before me by 5 & 6 Vict. c. 122, s. 69, and shall give them in this case. The defendants should have waived the personal attendance of the plaintiff. The rule I shall adhere to at first is only to allow the bare expenses as costs in these cast's. They may be added to the amount of the judgment-debt, and included in the order for payment. The costs were taxed by the registrar accordingly, who allowed, amongst other items, the sum of £3 9s. 8d. for Mr. Coke's expenses of journey from Neath to Bristol, eighty-four miles, besides expenses, &c. These taxed costs were added to the judgment-debt, and an order made for papnent of the whole by instalments of £ I a month.
EISTEDDFOD.—The forthcoming week is anticipated wilh much interest and pleasure by all classes. These national meetings being triennial, there is more anxiety to seize the opportunity of attending; and we understand that there is an idea of extending the boundaries within which the competition is now allowed to take place, so that the remainder of Brecknockshire may participate in the interests and advantages which are now only enjoyed by natives of the district of Gwent and Morganwg, inclu- ding only a small part of the last-mentioned county. We hear that all the best lodgings in Abergavenny are being rapidly bespoken. NEWPORT TOWN-HALL.—Thursday, October 2nd.- Present, the Mayor, Wm. Brewer, Esq., Thos. Hughes, Esq., and J. S.

[Our correspondent omitted to state upon what grounds the case was dismissed, as the evidence furnished seems straightforward and conclusive.] NEWPORT.—On Monday last a sharp contest took platye to supply the vacancy in the Carpenters' Arms Union Benefit Society, caused by the death of Mr. David Davies. There were three candidates in the field, and after the ballotting was concluded, the numbers were as follows — Mr. John Milner, jun., 34 Mr. Rogers, Ship Broker, 31; Mr. Williams, jun Crindau. 21. The first named gentleman was declared duly elected. We are informed that this is one of the most respectable Societies in Eng- land, and ranks amongst its numbers several of the most wealthy and influential gentlemen in Newport and its neighbourhood, including the venerable baronet at Tre- degar. MONMOUTHSHIRE CANAL NAVIGATION.—A public meet- ing of the proprietors of this navigation was held at Newport, on Thursday, for the purpose of contracting to sell and convey, or otherwise, upon the terms and con- ditions provisionally agreed upon at the last general assembly, the existing canals,railways, works, and other property of the company, together with the intended Newport and Pontypool Railway. The meeting was most numerously and respectably attended; but we regret that the very late hour at which our correspondent's letter reached us precludes our doing more than merely noticing the meeting.
