MERTHYR AND NEIGHBOURHOOD. THE LATK GASH OF FO!TGETIV AT MERTHYR TYDVIL. -In our last number we gave our readers au outline of the leading features of rather a singular case of Werv in which the principal actor was alleged to be one Mary Williams, and who, by vinous means and cunningly de- vised schemes and personal disguises, had succeeded in obtaining from the Brecon Old llauk, the sum of £240. We are happy to find that the account which was last week rather hastily prepared by us, proved, upon the whole, tolerably correct, as the only statement we feel called upon to rectify is- that the person who resided in the capacity of husband with Mary Williams, is not "a dignitary of the Order of Odd Fellowship." With the view of presenting our readers with the promised report of the examination before the magistrates on Saturday, jve proceeded to jlerthyr, but shortly after we had of the examination before the magistrates on Saturday, jve proceeded to jlerthyr, but shortly after we had entered the room, Mr. Hill said-" It is right to state that illy brother magistrate (William Thomas. Esq.) and myself, have determined to hear the charge against Mary Williams in private. No attorney will, therefore, be ad- mitted to act as adsocate either for the prosecution or for the party charged; and the public will be excluded during this inquiry." The room was consequently cleaied. We understand that in the course of a few 010- lueiits, Mr. Overton, solicitor, made application to the Bench to be allowed to remain merely to watch the pro- ceedings and take notes as the accused's legal advise! but the prayer of his application was not granted cou- sequeutly he was obliged to feave the room, having pre- viously protested agaiU8t the course adopted by the magistrates. The magistrates then fwith closed proceeded with their investigation, which was continued up to four o clock, at which hour the Court was ad- journed. ihe inquiry was resumed 011 Mondav morn- 'I1S,\ Mary Williams was fully committed to Cardiff Gaol, there to await her triul at the next assizes for this county, charged by Mr. David Evans, manager of the Brecon Old Bank, Merthyr Tydvil, and others, with having on the IOth of October, feloniously uttered a forged cheque for the payment of £240, and which cheque was purported to have been drawn by Mr. Morgan lhotnas, of Ynisgoy. We are in possession of the leading facia deposed to on Saturday but as the ac- cused will have to undergo a public trial by a jury of this county, we deem it would be most unfair to insert any garbled statements; or, indeed, further to allude to the matter until accuser and accused shall meet face to face and the latter have an opportunity afforded her of answer- ing the charge which has been preferred against her. A IMPUTATION from the underground men of Peny- ditrran Iron Works, waited upon Mr. Aldermtn luoinpaou on the 13th instant, to receive his answer respecting the application made for an advance of wages, IlIl'y were very politely received, and informed, that a general advance of the per cent. would take place,—the lire-men commencing working on the same 011 the 10th i and the underground men on the 24th instant; and that all additional advance would take place in January or February, when he and MI i-'ormail would come down, should the state of the warrant their doing so. A DISHONKST Tiucik..—J.i Wednesday, a member of one of the Friendly Societies in this town, who, with two others, had about £ 25 of the society's money to take to the bank,—under thepreteuce that he wanted to go out, I'd 1 the room, and has not since been heard of. It is Supposed that he is gone to the United States. The iellojv hag left 4is family behind him. William Crawshay, Esq., arrived it, Cjfarthfa Castle on Thursday, and appeared in excellent health. The movements of the iron-masters are marked with extreme interest by the thousands in their .employ. B RICOH FAm.—Earty on Monday morning, vast num- bers. of butchers, cheesemongers, farmers., and others, passed through Tydiji Street for the purposf of attending this great fair. It is. said that not a few of the light fingered and thimble rigging fraternity of all kinds went on Sunday. IKQUHBT.—An inquest was held on £ be l3th instantilt ,i the Angtl. Inn, before William jDavies, rEsq., coroner, on view of the body of Mary Zecha/iah,v aged 80, who died •! on the previous day from Injuries she sustained ou the 11th in High Street, by coming accidentally in contact 1 with a horse and gig. The jury returned a verdict ac- cordingly, wtth & deOdand of one shilling on the gig. At the conclusion of the inquiry, the coroner and jury v*ry justly condemned the pavements of the town, as being too narrow, and referred to the bad state of the pave- ment in many instances, which induced (he generality of the passengers to walk in the middle, of the atreet, and, consequently, it is quite astonishing that $e,few accidents occur. On the other hand, it was/gmtrlud that the-peo- ple are very careless in neglecting to.turn ou( of the way.. EARLY CLOSING OF SHOPS.—Once more we have the gratifying intelligence to communicate that the shops In this town are to be closed during the winter for three evenings in the week, viaTuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, at eight o'clock. Should any infringe this regulation before the change of the precept moon, we are requested to have his name printed, if not in letters of gall," yet in some conspicuous part of this paper. The tradesmen of this town, we are sure, will not be at any pains to secure such a mark of public notoriety. ABKRD^RK RAILWAY.—Such is the rapidity with which this une is carried on that contractora have already com- menced laying some of the plates. It is conjectured that it will be ready much sooner than was at first expected. -————- LLAt:Tt!MAt<T.—On the 15th instant. Win. Richards died very suddenly under these ciicuqastanees:—He was returning home from Pentyrch wHere ke had been at work when he turned Into a neighbour's house (David Datiea, mason,) and fell down before he had uttered a word—his de&th being probably instantaneous! He was 77 years of age; and had been a consistent member with the'bissenters for many yeara, and was generally esteemed. COWBIUDQB PETTY SWSIOKI,—[Held at THE Town- hall, at Cowbridge, on Tuesday, the 18th of November instant, before R. C. Nicholl Came, Esq., Richard Bassett, Esq., Hugh Entwisle, Esq., Robert Boteler, Esq., and the Rev. Arthur DeneJ—Poliee-omcer John John, charged Thomas Meyrict, of Pentre-meyrick, in the parish of Penlline, with having assaulted him in the execution of his duty, on the evening of Tuesday, the 11th instant. The defendant pteaded not guilty, but was convicted on the evidence of several witnesses, and the magistrates in consideration of the arduous duty which the police-officers have- to perform, and after expressing their determination to protect them, fined the defendant E2 and the-coste-which auma were paid. LAMTWIT MAJOH.—OPMIKG OP AX ODD FBLLOWB' HALL.- The town of Lantwit Major, famous in olden times as one of the firot seminaries for learning, has been the first in the Prin- cipality to establish an Odd Fellows' Hall. The worthy vicar, the gentlemen, landowners, and farmers of the parish very kindly offered the old Town-hall to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, MiU., of the St. Iitutus Lodge. The members willingly responded to the tequett of their more opulent neigh- bours, and gratefully accepted the offer. The old building has stood many centuries, but the walls appear now as perfect as ever, the roof and joists being of the best oak are in high pre- servation the slating has been examined carefully. The hall has been newly boarded, plastered, ceiled, and all the old Gothic windows glazed and- fitted up in a very handsome manner, doing great credit to the committee of management, and to the work- men employed. The hall (exclusive of the lobbies, &c.) is 46 feet long, 23 feet wide, and 16-feet high, fitted up with useful chairs, and adorned with a very massive, antique chandelier; chairs-and hall were beautifully dressed with natural and artifi- cial flowers by the maiden daughter of our old and worthy friend" Iolo MorgaowgY, The expense in repairing IiDd fitting up the hall will be nearly £100. in addition to very handsome donations given by the gentlemen of the neighbourhood, the ladies proposed a tea party to assist in defraying the expenses, which was accepted and carried into effect on the 6th of November instant; on that evening the members of the St. lltutas Lodge, with several memben.from the neighbouring lodges, tnoved in procession from the Cross Keys, through the principal Streets of the old town, preceded by their excellent band, playing anima- ting airs., Upon their arrival at the hall they 'fbund it nearly filled with the most beautiful part of the creation, handsome and well dressed ladies of the town and neighbourhood; where tea, cake, fee., See., were already abundantly prepared, of which about thirty trays, with every requisite thereon, had been gra- tuitously presented by their warm hearted aad kiid neighbours. There were two ladies with -each tray. who spued no trouble in supplying the company with the exhilarating beverage. Between four and five hundred partook of tea, &c.. which lasted from four to six o'clock, when, «ceording to announcement, the meeting was addressed by different members of tnfe Order, and Others. P. P.G. M. James Reynolds, of Paradise Lodge, Cowbridge, was unanimously called to the chair the meeting at that time eonsisled of between five and six hundred of all ages, from one month to eighty years. After an appropriate address fitom the chairman, G. M. David Jenkins, of the St. Iitutus Lodge, very happily addressed the meeting, first stating the great iacrease there has been in the Order these last twenty years, and like- wise how satisfactorily the St. iitutus Lodge was going on, at the same time inviting all industrious and well-thinking men to join so valuable an institution, with advice to the single ladies not to get married, unless the young men were first made Odd- fellows, which, of course, caused some merriment he likewise remarked what could be done for the small sum of sixpence a week. viz.—relieve the sick; provide medical attendance; fu- neral expenses paid; an allowance for traveling and likewise a widow and orphans' fund established. The whole company seemed in such high spirits, that our worthy brother declared it to be one of the happiest evenings of his life, and closed his dis- course with advising the whole company—as the poet said— "To despair of nothing which you would attain, Unwearied diligence your-pOInt will gain." P, V.John John, addressed the. company in English poetry 4 very much to the purpose, returning thanks to the ladies and gentle- men of the neighbourhood, for coming forward so nobly in as- sisting the members of the St. iitutus Lodge he was repeatedly cheered. Mr. Wm. John addressed the meeting in Welsh poetry, although not a member, he spoke highly of the Order, and was much cheered by those who understood the language. Mr. William Robarts, a highly respectable young man, new resident at Llantwit, spoke for some time; his language waa beautiful and of the first order he, m comparisons, showed, huw thank- ful we should be to Divine Providence, instead of war and dis- cord, to see so handsome an assemblage collected together for one general good, vieiug with each other to beiiefit society 'and improve the moral condition of the working classesbis speech was highly admired by the respectable company present. P. P. G. M. John Thomas, of the Kemeys Lodge, Lancarvan dis- trict, spoke highly of the members-of the St. Iitutus Lodge in getting up sorespectable an Oddfellows flail; and as he had always a desire of having the meetings held in a private room. he thought he should shortly join the Si. Iitutus Ledge. our worthy chairman, so well known, repeatedly addressed the mooting,blendin3 in his -discourse, his usual good humour and useful information, relative to the objects, usefulness, and num- bers of the Order, being in May last, -331,747, their funds t60),0d0, adding that no religious-or political disputes are ever allowed to take place in a lodge. They are men of, one object, having in view the benefit of their fellow creatures. They are loyal to our beloved Sovereign, and. attached to the institutions of our eountry they inculcate in their lectures, our duty towards God, our neighbours, and ourselves. Our Worthy chairman said so many good tilings, that we should take up too much of the time of our friends to state,.all, we can only Say he was rapturously cheered throughout. The band played favour- ite airfi (very much to their credit) between the lectures. In the course of the evening two letters were read by G. M. David Jenkins, onefrom J. W. N. Carue, ElK)., L.L.D., and one from iltyd Nicholl, Esq., Usk, Monmouthshire, with their expaession of good feeling towards the Order generally, and their donations of £ä each towards defraying the expenses of repairing the Odd- fellows Hall in Llantwit Major; we likewise received i5 from 1 tl»M.worthy gentleman, Whitklck Nicholl, Esq of Adamsdown, ana £ •") from our worthy townsman aud respectable tradesman, Mr. Benjamin L'rice. who, in giving lus money, said. he never parted with money with more pleasure, and wishing all success 1 to our institution. Our worthy vicar, as well as subscribing jEt, bought a number of tea -tickets, and distributed them among the ancient widows of Lantwit Major. Among the trays given, we noticed some that had no connection with the Order. Mrs. Garsed attended, and certainly was very kind some ibity or fifty took tea at her tray at different times. We uoticed trays from other worthy ladies; Mrs. Carne, of- Ditniands Mrs. Williams, of Marcross; Mrs. Walters Miss Beamer, fcc., Jtc. The evening was spent in such a pleasant manner, that it, will not soon be forgotten by the inhabitants of Lantwit Msjo* some very influential gentlemen expressed a desire to be united j to the Order and we say to every, man. go thou and do like- wise." At the close of the meeting, thanks were given to our worthy chairman for his able conduct in the chair, and to the ladies and gentlemen, &c., &c., for their kind attendance. The meeting closed at. tf o'clock; the band playing God save the Queen. SUBSCIUFTIOKS atemvao. i.. a. d. Rev. Evan Morgan 1 0 0 Rev. Robert Carne 2 2 0 J. W. N. Carne, L.L.D » 0 0 lltyd Nicholl.

MAKSTBO, NOT. ,18TV.—SKOCXIMQ AccioaMTa—On, Tuesday aAne little- fellow, between 8 and 0 years of age the spn of a man named David Morgan, a Collier, near the Traveller's Rest, Bowrington, whilst playing near the tramroad. fell wnder a pasting tram, and his right arm waa so. drcadfully jnutiUted that, in the course of a few w««mputated within two inches OfithO shoulder: op Friday nooning. a fiue stout youqg girl, who is employed ju the fire brick-yard the Uynvi Iron Com- panj, out of .pure" kindnus to another female who bad pot frrired to her wofk, attempted to do her duty in feed- .inA the,rotip of 4he engine, when her arm was caught in the,cog» of the wheels and torn off above the elbow-her breast torn olf. and part of the abdomen, in size eight inches by eleven, and the upper part of her thigh!! Those wjio have seen her MV a more mutilated living spectacle WM sever-beheld; yet her firmness and nerve were most astonishing-—-not the slightest alteration was re" .perceptible in her pulse until her arm was taken off at the pocket of her shoulder and there is every probability Qf her surviving, although she must remain one of the moet pitiable objects in existence, The unfortunate woman's name is Anne Lloyd—the it 26 years of age, and she has an aged mother, a widpw, whom she has hitherto ill part supported. They, also, live near the Traveller's Ileet. The little, boy, as soon as .possible, will be placed in the Bowrington School-the muter of which, we are Assured, having a fellow feeling for the little sufferer, will do his utmost to get him forward. The above operations were most skilfully performed, by our talented surgeon, Robert Block Thomas, Esq., assisted by — Prichard Esq. Mr. Thomas has baen unremitting in his attend- auce on the sufferers, whose immediate wanta have been kindly and liberally attended to. A benevolent lady who is on a visit at Bowungton House, has been ex- tremely liberal to them;, as have likewise the Mrs. Hanjpton*, our worthy surgeon's lady (Mrs. Thomas) Mrs. Dunn, Ac,in fact, all have evinced the greatest sympathy with the unfortunate sufferers. Having a full knowledge that there are many noble and benevolent hearts in Glamorgan, whQ.lI do good in secret and blush to find it. fame," we have been particular in giving the names and direotions of the mutilated objects of our im- mediate atteuti", If any benevolent sympathisers with suffering humanity are inclined to assist these unhappy creatures, they will easily find means of conveying their bounty- to then). AROXHKR DRKADFUL ACCIDENT WITH Lose OF Lln- -Qn Friday evening last* an unfortunate man, a haulier op the Porth Cawt Railway to Maesteg, whose name we cannot ascertain, but learn he was a native of Cornwall was on bis route to meet the return trams at Nottage' and exchange drivers, when it ia supposed some part of the gear of the shafter had got out of place, and in at- tempting to adjust at whilst going he fell, and was liter- ally doubled up by the tram passing over him. Several men, at a ahort distance, ran "wtanUy to assist him, but all in vain—the vital spark had fled BOWMKGIO* SCHOOLS. The patronage which these schools receive is very great. Within three months two splendid tea-parties have been given-tlie first by Mrs. Metcalfe, who gave numerous frocks to the girls, and the second by Mrs. Squance, who also gave many frocks to the females. The meeting was favoured by the presence of many tisitors, who in general partook of the splendid cake provided in abundance for the occasion, not neg. lecting,to taste of the exhilarating beverage which cheers but does not intoxicate. The master has it, we learn, in eontemptation to have a public examination on the Tues- day in the Christmas week, when it is expected that many of the neighbouring families will honour the schools with their presence., It may be proper to add that these schools have not been opened- four months, yet the pro- gress of the pupils, and the liberal supply of stationary, &c., free of charge, do great credit to the establishment. BOWRINGTON, Nov. 17TH>—A correspondent says— This thiiving place is admirably supplied with butcher's meat- excellent beef frorn4jd. to 5d. mutton at 6d.; freeh butter at Is. Id. In one butcher's shop, on Satur- day last, I saw beet veal, and mutton, of prime quality, in abundance—the veal was 5d. per lb. I believe that, however numerous the population, and all ready-money customers, a quantity of melit remained till this morning unsold." NttATH PETTY SBMtOM.—There was not a single case heard at these sessions on Fridaylaat VALE OF NRATH CANAL~COMPANY.—A. meeting of the shareholders in this nndertakfng was held 011 Thursday week, at the London Coffee-house, Ludgate-hill, Howel Gwyn, &H'' [D l^e chair.—The meeting was called for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of lowering the tolls on the canal; as also aa offer made by the Great hastern aad WVstor* Railway Gempaa1,aa4 to receive depu- tations from the directors of some other companies, respecting ike parr base of the canal for conversion into a railway; on this subject, however, no definite arrangement was entered iote. bMttbt result of the meeting shows that the proprietors bav* still conetdeiable faith iø the capabilities and remu- nerativ«taesa of canal property, having decided to hold out still greater inducements for the carriage of heavy goods on this canal, by_reducing the amount of tollage on iron 25 per cent., orfroa onepf-nny to three farthings per ton per mile, and en tfon ore, building stone, and limestone, to one farthing per too per mile.—1 he meeting was uinneroasly attended, and • unanimously agreed to the resolutions. SWANSKA.—lhe charge of murder on the high eeas, referred to in. our last number, was not brought before the magistrates oil Friday, as previously arranged, in con- sequence of the non-appearance of the accuser. SWANS-A SAVINQS' BANK, Nov. 15.—Deposits received £ 319 7s. 4d.; paid, £240 log. 6d. Notices to withdraw, £ HMt 15s, 6d. Alanager, Mr. J. W.

When we consider that the managers of this bank strictly conform to the provisions of the Act.ofParuameut, und invariably refuse deposits from any except the humbler claeses of society, this increase of-nearly six thousand pounds evinces, a degree of prosperity on the part of Swansea aud its neighbourhood truly gratifying. DISEASED POTATOES.—The following is a copy of a most useful handbill which has jmt been ciiculated by Mi-. Dillwya Llewelyn, of Penllrrgare, in this connty, amongst his neighbours and servant*:—Thousands of potatoes are already cankered, tens oT thousands aie perishing day by day, and hour by hoar, and if uoihing is done to save ihem, the* whole will shortly deray, and then ihere will be a scarcity of food aud starvation, and famine in the lan«t. Take warning, then, and ssve what you cau while there is yet time. Above all, remember, that every pot&toe will certainly perish that is left buried in ihe damp earth, or touching those that are al- ready decayed. The disease, in either case, wilt undoubi- edly spread, and spread quickly, and you will lose your I whole s ock.

Mr. Marks foolishly jumped off. It was evident to those on the omnibus that he had sustained some considerable injury, as he remained motionless on the ground, and therefore the vehicle was stopped, and several parties proceeded to the spot where he lay. Upon examination it was fuuad that he had sustained a most dangerous compound fracture of the leg-th. bones actually protruding not only through the flesh, but even through the boot and trousers—such was the violence of the f ,r* was iastautl> conveyed home and attended by medical gentlemen but it is feared that it will be necessary to have recourse to amputation of the limb. Although his foolish rashness is censured, yet the unfortunate occurrence is very generally deeply regretted by all, especially by those who are personally acquainted with Mr. Marks, and who have ever found in him an agreeable companion, a kind neighbour, and a. firm fnend. TEETOTAHSM.- The cetebr.ted and well-known advocate ot i otal-abstinence principles-Mr. R. K. Philp, has again visited Swansea; and on Monday, and Tuesday evenings, lectured to crowded audiences at the Town Hall.
