MONMOUTHSHIRE. NOMINATION OF SHERIFFS, 1846-7.—Thomas Pro- thero, of Malpas Court, Esq. Charles John Kemeys Tynte, of Cefn Mably, Esq.; Wm. Hunter Little, of Upper Pantygoytre, Esq. NEWPORT.-A t the recent general meeting of the Dock Company, we are sorry to hear that the reporters of the public press were refused admittance. The Monmouth- shire Canal Company appear to be actuated by a different spirit. At a general meeting held at the company's office on Thursday, Sir Charles Morgan, Bart., in the chair, it was resolved unanimously that a reporter should be admitted. In future we intend availing ouraelves of this liberal order. Newport Dock was never so full of vessels as it is at the present time. Two are obliged to lie out on the river, there being no room within for them. NEWPORT.—Her Majesty has been pleased, through Sir James Graham, to commute the sentence passed upon Gibbon, Cole, and Pring, convicted at the last Monmouth Assizes of a rape into seven years' transportation, instead of for life. I On Thursday last, the Tintema fine screw steamer arrived at Newport, being her first trip from Liverpool. We observed a full caigo of articles of grocery, &c. FIRE.-On Wednesday evening, at about 9 o'clock, information was received at the station house, New- port, that Mr. Wade's cooperage was on fire. The police with the fire engine were soon at the spot; and having obtained a supply of water, wrought so effectually upon the flames, that the fire was subdued within two hours. The crowd rendered very great assistance, but no one was more active than the respected member for the borough, Mr. Blewitt, who unfortunately fell into the canal. We are happy to state that he sustained no other inconvenience, further than a thorough wetting. The mayor (Mr. J. Latch), Mr. Wm. Townshend, Mr. J. J. Nicholas, and Mr. T. Cooke; Mr. Phillips, Mr. D. Blackwood, and many of the most respectable inhabitants exerted themselves greatly. The damage occasioned by the fire, although considerable, yet is not so great as was at first imagined. We are informed that in the immediate neighbourhood of the fire there were deposited 20 tons of hemp, 40 tons of oil, besides a quantity of turpentine. INQUMT.—On Wednesday, the 19th instant, an inquest was held at the Tredegar Arms Inn, Pill- gwenlly, Newport, before William Brewer, Esq., coroner, on view of the body of Samuel Hall, aged 25 years. It appeared by the tenor of the evidence adduced, that the deceased, at about seven o'clock in the evening, was stepping ashore from a schooner which lay at a jetty in the Victoria Yard, having been at work on board, and in doing so he missed hi* footing, fell into the water and was drowned, although instant means were used to rescue him. His body was not found till the following morning. Verdict- Accidental death. NEWPORT TOWN HALI.. MO.NDAY—[Present, the Mayor, Wm. Brewer, Edward Dowling, Thos. Hawkins, and Thos. Hughes, Ksqrs.]—Evan Y or nth was charged wiih having been drunk anrf disorderly. Sergeant Jiini Huxtaiile sworn: "Last night, between 11 and 12 o'clock. I was on dltly in Foiiiergill- street.

Tup, COURT FOR THE REUUF OF IXSOLVSNT Deur- ors, was held on Wednesday week, tit Monmouth, by J. G. Harris, Esq., commissioner. There were only two cases to be disposed of, viz., Thomas Hands :wd Saaiuel Wiisoii, both uuoppo.se> Upon calliiijj the case of Thomas Hands, the governor of the ,oat s'itotl that the iusolvent s discharge had beeu sent to him on the 10th instant, but upon his (the insolvent's) earnest soiiei'.ation, he h;;d allowed him to retntiin in the g-tol until this time that he had willingly conformed to the rules, and waa brought up in euatojy. The commissioner said that tho governor had acted perfectly right, and rem.irked iu strong Icnns upon the practice of discharging insolvents upon tiie eye of hearing; ne considered the case legiti- mately before the court, and ho should therefore proceed to discharge the insolvent, aud thereby defeat the objcct of the plaintiff, ill endeavouring to prevent hitn receiving the benefit of the act. The eases were g .12 into, and both insolvents ordered to be discharged forthwith. ABEKGAVBNN Y. — EDUCATION AT. JIovtM :■:« r.
