FRIGHTFUL RAILWAY ACCIDBIn.-Shortly before seven o'clock on Thursday morning, three persons were, killed at the Brighton station of the London and BRIG Railway. It appears that the engine which was to bring up THE 7 o'clock train to London, had just EMERGED from the shed to be attached to the train, am 1 WHEN the persons. the driver, stoker, and «NF,N« boiler blew up with a terrible repor P AWAY of the steam and smoke was found t at the three servants of the company had been killed, an bo,lie, frightfully mangled. '1 he engine-driver had hi* head completely blown ofl from the neck, and it was found some sixty yards from the engine; while the body of the IItoker was found dismembeied of both arms and the head smashed into a shapeless mass; the engine-filter had both legs blown (Iff and his body dreadfully shuttered. The lemains of the unfortunate n en weie gathered up, and the foice of the explosion may be imagined, from the fact of portions of the bodies HAVING been picked up at the corner of Surrey-street some 300 yards from the station. A piece of the engine, a heavy iion mass was driven through the roof of the station and fell 200 yards from it. A MAN nLCAPiTATED AT LEEDS.-On Friday morn- irig a shocking and fatal accident occurred at the Kir stall-forge iron works, near Leeds. A workman, name WILLIAM Merritt, aged 28, wasemployed in a room where a revolving shaft, moved by steam power, is fixed, an( at the top of this shaft is a circular piece of thin metal usfd for some purpose. The shaft is fixed in a corner If the. room and behind it is kept a stock of iron rehts "SED in making engine boilers. It is supposed that VHILE Meriitt was taking something out of this corner bis clothes CAUGHT the revolving shaft, and whirlerl him round it, and ifso it would be with most fearful velocity. HOWEVER this may be, he was soon after the accident F"und in the room without head and minus one arm, 'HE head being in one part and the trunk of the body in another pait of the room. The poor fellow was most I'fobably drawn up the shsft, and his neck coming in CONTACT with the piece of circular metal before mentioned, it Would be severed from his body instantaneously. MONSTER TRAIN.-Oieof the new express engines, r"C""1 I T'CENTLY constructed for the London and North-Wesiern ailway, brought an experimental train consisting of not ll",s than 34 carriages, loaded to 5 tons each, from Bir. M'NRBAM to London in three hours. Thisisconsidered »o be the most extraordinary performance ever accom- plished by a single locomotive engine, and has confirmed the expectations formed of the nieritsof the arrangements 'I'CERIUY patented by Mr. M'Connell. In many parts of E j urney the speed had lo be much diminished in con- s' QNENCE of THE bad state of the road, and there is no OUBT, when those defects are remedied, the two hours' TR'T>, with a train of 15 carriages, 'will be carried into EFFECT.
IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. (Continue,ifrom our fourth page.) HOUSE OF LORDS-TUESDAY. LORD Ljttelton presented petitions from the clergy of two rilral deaneries in the diocese of C rencester, complaining of the P"inilties imposed by the Act of Henry VIII. on deans and RHAPIER* not electing as Bishop the persons nominated by the Crown in the conge it'elite', and also complaining of the law as laid down by the Court of Queen's Bench in Dr. Hampden's ease, DERIVING the Metropolitan of any virtual or eff-ctual power of objection when called upon to confirm such election. Several lulls were advanced a stage, end there was A discus- sion on prevention of railway accidents.

Of the Jews it may be said, without offence, that, in every sense of the word, they are aliens—aliens in habits, customs, modes of thought. They are the inhabitants of every clime and country, hut, as a people, they have a home in none. They have been compared to some mountain stream llowing through lakes without commixture disowning the alien element through which it passes. We presume not to interpret the designs of Providence with regard to them as a nation. They are a standing miracle—A record of the truth of prophecy and, so far as we can see, they have no element of amalgamation. ——' !■—*
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE OMINOUS. There were no less than nine attorneys in the Cardiff Police Court, on Thursday (yesterday). On the 11th instant, Mr. Wm. Evans, Cwmsaybren, Ystradyfodwg, was admitted by the Board of Examiners a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. THE ROBBERY AT THE FIVE BELLS INN.—One of the thieves has been taken, and a full report of the examina- tion before the magistrates appears in our fourth page. On Wednesday, John Rolfe, a convalescent patient of the Infirmary, while walking on crutches fell down and fractured his left leg. Butforthisunfortunateaccident, he would have been able to leave the Infirmary yesterday (Thursday). We call the attention of our readers to the announce- ment in another column, that the annual meeting of the Infant School supporters in this town will take place on Thursday, the 24th instant, upon which occasion the children will be publicly examined. We perceive by an advertisement that a public meet- ing to be held in Bridgend on Saturday (thitday), for the purpose of considering the expediency of having a broad guage railway from the important mineral dis- trict of Blaenlly nti to Bridgend; and-for other matters. —See .4 </t t. ON Sunday evening last, a man named Roberts fell into the canal, near ttteBridgend Inn beer-house, and was extricated by a much older man, at leist sixty years of age. A crowd who had been attracted to the edge of the water by the accident pushed a boy in who stood in (ront: he also was got out safely. CARDIFF TOWN COUNCIL.—An adjourned meeting was hplrl on Mondaytast. An animated discussion took place on various matters of far greater importance than the drainage of the town or the erection of model lodging- houses, for the particulars of which we refer the cuiious in duch things to onr account of the proceedings. ACCIDENT.—On Monday evening a boy. aged 14, who was engaged in driving a horse and cart for Messrs. Warren and Denroche, on their work for forming a new approach to the South W Illes Railway Station, was violently kicked by thehorac on his face, and the cart passed over him. He was attended by Mr. Ball, surgeon to the Infirmary, and is now doing well. Mr. PROBETT, formerly mail coachman betweenthis town and Swansea, (in which situation he gained the re- spect and good will of all who knew him,) has taken the King's Arms Inn, High-street, Swansea, and has con- verted it into a very comfortable family hotel. It is within a short distance of the railway station; and any of our friends who may visit Swansea, will find it a most conve- nient place to stay at. — See Adut, THE WHARF BRIDGE (a correspondent writes) is no longer fit 10 be the medium of communieation between Saint Mary-street and Whitmore-lane. Vehicles heavily loaded pass over it constantly and it is so sleep and so narrow — possibly ricketty, also,—as really to be danger- ous. The Hayes Bridge (a new one) is in very gool1 arder j but it is scarcely wide enough, and it should be taken in a line with Lewis-street. AMONG the passengers by the Great Western Train which met with the sad accident near Ealing, was Mr. CrawshllY (of Caversham); he was in the carriage ad- joining that in which Mr. Gihbs, the director, was killed, and Dr. Pritchard Smith, of Mortimer, near Reading, also a director, had his shoulder dislocated. The death of one director, the very severe accident to another, and the narrow escape of a person of so much influence, who is almost a daily passenger from Reading to London, will probably lead to the moat scrutinizing investigations into a subject so interesting to the public. We believe it was Sidney Smith who said that the public would not be safe till a Director was killed or a Bishop burnt. We earnestly hope that the second catastrophe may now be prevented. THE CARDIFF WATER WORKS BILL went before the Committee of the House of CommOlH1 on Tuesday, opposed by the gentlemen deputed by the Cardiff Local Board of Health, represented by Mr. Brooke as counsel. The Company were represented by Mr. Hope and Mr. VVebster as counsel. Tuesday was devoted to the case for the Water Company, and the examination of th..ir witnesses closed at twelve o'ciock 01) Wednesday, when the opponenls laboured hard to get the Com- mittee to reject the preambte as not proved. About three o'clock, after a reply by the counsel for the Com- pany, those present were ordered to withdraw on their return the chairman informed them that the Committee, had resolved to grant powers to raise £20,OUO with power to borrow f 4.000, the rates to be untouched, and the old Act to be consolidated. Lord Itedesdale had proposed to grant powers to raise £ 30,000, with like powers of bor- rowing. Air. Collin attended on the Committee as repre- senting the Borough, and put several questions to the witnesses. Sir George Tyler also attended on the Com- mittee as a County Member. ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. — We observe with great pride that the unmeaning and tastelessend* in this well re- stored Church are becoming rapidly in far better keeping withthegenfratcharncter of its simple aud modest deco- rations; and that the artist, Mr. Jones, distinguished for some txqnisite carved wood-work ill the Exhibilioll of 1851, who is employed in carving the beautiful poppy- heads we allude to, is doing ample justice to his em- ployels and to his own j ist fame, at a very moderate cost. The specimens already executed—amounting apparently to about one-hidf of the whole to be dune- consist entirely of foliaye, appropriate to the period and style of the building: and we would venture to Ur^e our fellow-parishioners, who have not yet authorised the ornamenting of their pews. to avail themselves at once of Mr. Jones's taste and skill, as we hear he is in expecta- tion of soon beirig summoned to Rugby, where his talents are engaged ior the new Church there. It would be a matter of great regret if this opportunity were lost, as the cutiiog do*vn ot the undecorated ends, or an inferior character of design and execution by a less skillul person would be an irreparable act, which might be ùeplured but could not be remedied. AT an adjourned meeting of the Parishioners of Saint John' Cardiff, held in lh", Vestry-room of the above Church, on Monday last, a committee, composed of five gentlemen, was appointed to assist the Churchwarden, Mr. Win. Luke Evans, in devising the best mode of raising an adequate subscription to meet the expenses of an orgatiisi and a competent choir. Westneeretyhope, now step-tare being taken in the right direction, by placing the matter in the hands of men of spirit and energy, to find, ere long, the musical puition of the services performed in a manner becoming that sacred and ancient edifice. We understand the committee have already commenced their labours, and the success they have met with is most encouraging- FITKHMASONRY. — ON Tuesday last the members of the Glamorgan Ljd«e, No. 43, of the «'INT-ient FREE and Accepted Masons," MET at the C.irdilt Arms Hotel, to celebrate the one hundredth anniveisary ot their lodge. The members met in lodge at thtee clock, when three gentlemen were "initiated membeis, and other business pertaining to the lodge disposed of at six. p.MT> TjLE brethren, to the number ot 35, R:l 11 to a most ex- cellent dinner, prepared by brot ler in hu best style.

DOGS. —GreU complaints are made by parlies in this town of the large number of dogs which infest the neigh- S bourhoo.l. Not only are they a nuisance i:i the street* — j especially on the pavement—but they run over the field- surrounding us and worry sheep. Within the last fortnight Mr. Bradley has had three sheep killed by dogs, and Mr, Bond, master-butcher, has suffered similarly. A sheep belonging to the latter was found dead iu the field, and taken to the slaughter-house to be skinned, with the intention of destroying the carcase; some one supposed it was to be sold for human food, and went and gave information to the police, who thereupon seized the meat and cariied it away but as soon as the Super- j inteniieut wa* made aware of the facts he restored the meat, and it was piomptly destroyed as originally intended by Mr. Bond. It is absolutely necessity that some vigor- ous measures should be taken to lessen the number of dogs which prowl about in nil directions. EMIGRATION TO XEUCBS VALLEY, W KSTRRN 1 nx.vs.— On Tuuisiiay, the ItHh instant, several respectable vVelsh Farmers, accompanied by the Rev. D. J. Beynon, of Trefoiest, Pontypridd, who are shortly going out as settlers to Nueces Valley, under the auspices 01 Messrs. H. Mos? and Co., Col. Kinney's Agents, assembled at the Xew Inn, in f!iis town, to meet a gentleman ot the above firm to arrange preliminary matters and complete contracts for a eonsideiable quantity of Land, urnouut. ing, as we are informed, to near 4,100 Acre?, all having been set tied to the entire sa. isfacl ion of all the parties con- cerned, We are given to understand, there are a tew vacancies open till the 1st of April next, to families who may be disposed to join this Party and partake of its advantages. I AKLIAMENT will rise for the Easter holidays on Fri- day, to meet again on Monday, the 4th of April. We shall then look FOR Mr. Gladstone's Budget, and the solu- tion of the great Income Taxquestion, on winch actuaries, who have long got beyond mere English and common arithmetic, are nuw assailing one another with algebra, WITHOUT, however, the trifling preliminary ot AGREEING upon data, FT H;; seen tliitt Government have been dealing durio- tilt; WEEK, with two important subjects, the Uercan- (j| MARINE and ttie Assurance Oliices.

CAUTION TO PARTIES WHO MAY ATTEMPT TO VIOLATE THE REGULATIONS OF THE COUSTY GAOL.—On Friday last, W illiam Thomas was brought before CHARLES CnorTS W ILLIAMS, Esq., of Roath Court, charged with having taken spirits into the prison, contrary to therutes. —John Thomas swoin I am a turnkey in the county gaol. I Wtton duty then- at the gate this morning ( March Hth).betwet-n nine and ten o'clock. The prisoner knocked at the door. I opened it, anil he made haste to pass me. He told me he wanted to see Mr. Wylde, a debtorin custody. I called him back, and asked him what he bad in his pocket. He said—Nothing," and showed me his left-hand pocket. I put my hand into his right-hand pocket, and found the bottle produced. It containsgin. The piisoner said he was takiug it to MR. Wylde. It is contrary to the rules of the prison to allow liquor into the place, unless by order of the surgeon, and in this case the surgeon had directed that Mr. Wylde should have no liquor. The prisoner had been dis- charged from custody this morning about nine from that tr. half.past nine. He was a county court debtor. — Mr. Williams convicted the prisoner in the penalty of ten pounds, or three weeks' imprisonment,—the law being that for this offence the fine shall be not less than ten pounds nor more than twenty pounds. The prisoner was committed. A PILOT DROWNED.—On Saturday evening last an inquest was held at the Old Town-hall, Cardiff, before R. Lewis Reece, Esq., coroner, on view of the body of Henry Lewis, pilot, aged 36, who met with his death nnd<>r the circumstances stated in the subjoined evidence —William Grimes sworn I live at the Bute Docks, and am an apprentice with Mr. David Roberts, pilot. The deceased was going out with a vessel, as a pilot, from the Bute Docks this (Saturday) morning, about nine o'clock. He called me alongside with a boat, and I went. He wanted me to take him onshore. Hewasonboardthe vessel going out of the docks-nearly in the bottom of the cut. The captain had given him his money, and had told him he did not want him to go any further as it was a fair wind. I was passing in my master's pilot boat, and that is the reason he called me, that he might be put on shore. He had only a small boat; and this morning it was blow- ing too hard to take a small boat, I got within a foot of the vessel. He jumped towards us, and just at that moment a wave took the boat away about two yards: the consequence of that was that he dropped into the water. As he jumped from the vessel towards my boat, he caught hold of a rope called the topping lift, and as it was not capable of giving him support, he fell AS I have stated. The rope was only fastened to the end of the boom. He had the rope in his hand when he went into the water. HE let go the rope, and tried to swim. He swam right from uq, towards the old dock, keeping himself before the sea, I suppose, expecting we would bear down after as quickly as we could, which we did. Joseph Birks was with me in the boat. There was another boat pulling down the drain (the cut), and we called to them to go after him. They did not understand us directly; but when they did they went after him, and he sank just as one of the men was going to take hold of him. There werefourmeninthatboat. Hewasquitesober. There was a nasty sea on at the time. — The body was found by Blllndford Lucas and John I'amplin, about the second buoy from the outer buoy of the cut, after the tide had receded. About twenty persons assembled to bearch for him. The deceased has left a widow and three young children-the oldest under nine years of age. He resided at I Jill's-terrace. Maria Lewis, sister of the deceased, said he was a native of this town. He was an indus- trious man, but was enabled to leave nothing for his family, who are almost totally destitute, as the deceased had a very unfortunate winter—earning but very trifling sums.—The jury returned a verdict of "Accidentally drowned." MELANCHOLY DEATH OF A SAILOR BOY An inquest was held at the George Hotel, Bute Docks, on Monday evening, March 14th, before R. Lewis Reece, Esq., coroner, on view of the body of James James, aged 16, son of Eleanor James, widow, residing at Moilgrove, near Saint Dogmells, Pembrokeshire, and within a few miles of the town of Cardigan. — Alexander Steel, master of the schooner Geoigf and Jane, of Bristol, examined The deceased was an apprentice on board my vessel. He had been in her since the 24th of January, Last night (Sunday) about ten o'clock he was in the cabin, where we all sleep, and I told him to go to bed. He went to bed in my sight. He was quite sober. He was a steady, Rober, good boy, so far as I kllow. Between three and foorthts morning (Monday) I called,TO the deceased to bring me a light, and had no answer. I called him several times, but had no reply. Then I called to the mate, to see where deceased was. The mate answered me; and then went to the berth of deceased with A lighted candle. The mate told me,—"The boy is gone, and likewise his clothes are gone," That is all I know. About half-past five this morning when I and the mate were in bed, just as day was breaking, a policeman hailed our vessel. She was lying at the Hallast Wharf in the Glamorganshire Canal. I desired the mate to go on deck and see what was the matter. In about five minutes the policeman and the mate came down to the cabin to me; and the policeman asked me if such a boy had left me. I said I had missed a boy; and then he showed me a letter, and asked me if I knew the directions on it. I looked at the letter and knew that it had belonged to the deceased. The policeman then told me the boy was drowned in the Little Dock. It is sometimes catted "The Railway Dock." I ordered the mate to try to get him out of the water, and be did eventually. I saw the body lying in an outhouse belonging to Mr. Daughton, of the George Hotel. I have no notion what motive the boy had for getting up out of bed. He had his bag of clotheB with him. 1 behaved to him as if lie was my own son and he was quite comfortable with me. I lun told that he was going into a coasting vessel, probably being anxious to GO home. He told a boy, _It ( am going into a schooner, which is a larger vessel than the one I am in ô" but I have not been able to ascertain the name of the vessel. — [ The letter produced was from deceased's mother, and was dated October 22nd, 18,)2, so that the poor boy IJJU-t have kept it carefully, aud, no doubt, prized it highly. It was couched in most affectionate terms.J — "he mate corroborated the Captain's statement, and said he had new!;>r chastise,1 the boy Parker, watch- mall, in the service of the Tatf Vale Railway Company, examined: About live minutes plst four this morning 1 was on duty at the Little Dock. As I was walking towards the Bute-road from that place, I met with P.C. William Brown (No 18), who told me the clock had just struck four. I made the remark it was a very wet dark morning; and he said it was. Weheardthecryofsome one; and the second time we heard it I thought it sounded like some Oftewhowaijoverbjard. Itwasacty of dhtre.s. I did not hear a plunge into the water. It occurred to both of ua that jl was Ibe cr) of some oue ill the water; and we both 1"111 towards Ihe place from whence we thought the sounds W"namely, towards the Little Dock. When we arrive A cheie we saw some olle ill the water. I asked Ihe polieemlln to run and get the boat-hook, IIlI there was ot:e I1t the opposite side of the Little Dock, close by the landing-place and he did 80. Durin" the time he was away I called to Che smack Venus that 7here was JIINU1 olle overboard in the water. A man came on deck, and I asked him for a boat-hook he said they had not one oa board. Another policeman then came (Dwyer, So. HI). Just at that time the body disappeaied—went to the bottom. The deceased was at- tempting to swim, and I held the light out as a guide to him. If we could have had him a foot further I think we should have saved him. A man on board the Venus threw a rope to Dvvjer, an 1 he threw it across the de- ceased. hut it was too ).dt"the body was TH^N on the point of disappearing. The oiher policeman came with the boat-hook, and with it we tried to get the body up. but it was too sholt. Dwyer then went to the pier-head tor a longer boat -hook and a grapple, with which he returned. A policeman belonging to the Dock Company came with him. In about two hours we succeeded in getting up the body. —P.C Brown said he TIN as fast as he could for the boat-hook, hndtourid it without any difficulty. It was very dark.—His bag of clothes was hooked up from the water alongside of the wall, by James Parker, who said he had heard that the deceased had been asking for a passage on board the Venus.—The Coroner summed up the evidence, and the jury returned a verdict of "Found Drowned."—Tht. Captain said that the poor boy had had a letter from home while in Wuterford; aud he believed there was one at the Post-office for him. He had not the least idea that he was going to leave; and he seemed to share the opinion which generally prevailed iu lhe ronmthtt the deceased must have felt a longing afler honlt., and had determined to leave his vessel, which he did at a dark and tempestuous hour, and, missing his wav, lei I into the Water and was drowned. ROLLS' Couitr, MONDAY, March 14.—(Before the Master of the Rolls.) — DUKP, OF UEAUFOUT V. PATRICK. The arguments in this case, WHICH occupied lhe greater part ot Saturday, were resumed and concluded to-day. The object of the suit is to obtain an injunction to re- strain the defendants from proceeding with an action of ejectment, and to obtain the conveyance of certain pieces ot land used for the purposes of the Swansea Canal. The land in qustion. it appeared, j„ N<JL>, when the canal was tormed, was leased to a person named Popkins, whose lease expired ill ISTL, when the parties interested in the reversion brought their action of ejectment against the proprietors of the canal, and obtained a special ver- dict. 1 he object of the plaintilFs, who represent such proprietors iu the present suit, IA to restrain proceedings on such action of ejectment, AND to retain possession of the land in question upon the payment of an equivalent compensation. His Honour took time to consider the judgment. The Solicitor-General, Mr. James, MR. II. Palmer, MR. Campbell, Mr. Wjckens, M r. Crackaell, aud Mr. l'emberlou appeared in the cast*. CHURCH EXTENSION IX THE DIOCESE OF LLANDA FF. At the quarterly meeting OF the Society for Providing Additional Pastoral Supenniendeuoe AND Church Accoml niadation iu the Diocese of Llandaff, held at Cardiff on 1 uesday, March trie 8th, theie were present- The Lord Bishop, the Archdeacons of Llandaff and M nmoutn. the Rev. Thus. Stacey, Precentor of Llandaff1 W. A. Williams, C. C. Williams, E. P. Richards. ULLd James Lewis, Esq'-s. tlie.lievs. J. C. Campbell, II. L. Bioese, WM. Bruce, R. Knight, Wm. Jones, W, L. Morgan, E. Jenkins, &C. The Aioiideacon of Llandaff officiated as Secretary in the absence of H. A. Bruce, Esq., M.P. The following grants were ma le: — For rebuilding the parish Church of Coedkernew, in the county OL. AJuUtnouth, wiih incioased accommodation £ 20. For building a new Chu:ch at Newbridge, in Glamor- ganshire, which is becoming a populous town, JL'IO'J.

Ad addition was als) voted for the salary of the Welsh Curate. provided tint corresponding eU'orts were made for a similar object in the locality. The fallowing resolution was adopted with reference to the Secretary — "That the Committee receive with much pleasure the assurance thit Mr. H. A. Bruce proposes to continue hIs valuable services as Secretary, and beg to otter to him their sincere thanks as welt for his past efforts as for his promise of future exertions on behalt of the Society." It was resolved, that the anniversary meeting should be held at Cardiff in the Easter week. Our readers will observe with pleasure that two new Churches, in addition to the ten previously mentioned as either completed, building, or on the point of com- mencement, were set on foot at this meeting,—results scarcel) to have been anticipated by the most sanguine when the Society was inaugurated not three years ago while fifteen additional Pastors are, under its auspices, ministering in the most densely-peopled portions of the Diocese. -——— LLANDAFF EDUCATION BOARD. On Wednesday, March the 9th, the annual meeting of the Llandaff Education Board was held at the Town- hall, Cardiff,—the Bishop in the Chair. The report was rcul by the Honorary Secretary, the Archdeacon of Llandaff it gave an account ot the proceedings of the Board during the past year. Ihey will, we are sure, be satisfactory to all who are interested in the work of Education, and their perusal will, we trust, conciliate re- newed support to this institution. A grant of £-10 was made towards building a School- room at Cwinrhond ia, in the parish of Llanwonno, where vigorous efforts are being made to provide for the spirit- ual exigencies of a large and growing population by the election of a Church and School in a convenient situation. £ 10 WAS also voled for apparatus for a new School to be opened at the Cardiff Docks, where such an institu- tion is greatly needed.
CARDIFF POLICE. —THUHSDAY. (Continue I from onrfuurth poge. ) [Before W. Williams, Esq., Mayor, and G. Phillips, Esq.] CAUTION TO SUlP BROKERS. Willium Brown", ship- broker, Cardiff, was rh rge<l on the information of Mr. i'eake, Collector of Customs in this port, with having, on the 2nd of December, 1852, counterfeited a certain document, to wi', a transire for the lading and clearing of the "Newnham" contrary to law, whereby he incnrrptl Ii penalty of £ 200. He was also charged with wilfully using the said document, thereby incurring another penalty of £ 200. Mr. Peake examined I produce tlJÍs document which I received from the master oftheNewnham. It purports to be a transire,"—a document used when vessels trade from one port in the United Kingdom to another. It is issued by the Customs, and must be signed by a Collector or Comptroller, or any person acting for them. The master of the vessel is not here. I can prove it i9 not a genuine document. Mr. John Bird, who appeared for the defendant, objec- ted to the reception of any statement made by the master of the vessel in the absence of the defendant. Mr. Peake said all he could do was to place the case before the Magistrates; and as the charge was a very serious one it was the more necessary that it should be clearly brought home to the defendant. He did not waut to prosecute vindictively, but merely wished to have the ends of public justice fairly attained. In the absence of the necessary proof to connect the defendant with the offence, the magistrates dismissed the case. Mr. Peake told the defendant that he might consider himself very fortunate in escaping, because if he had applied to any professional gentleman for legal assistance matters might have assumed a different aspect. lUVENILB OFFENDERS. Michael Keefe and James Sullivan, (both aged nine years, it was said,) were charged with Itealing coal from the East Branch of the Taff Vale Railway, on Monday evening last.—P.C. Francis Hawkins gave the necessarv evidence. — To be sent to prison for three days, and to be once privately whipped. A child who was caught stealing coal by the Borough Police was dismissed, as the Superintendent said he could not offer etidence against one of such tender years. REFRACTORY SEAMEN. Six seamen were charged with refusing to do duty on board the biig "Royalist," of Maryport.-Mr. John Hutrk, master of the vessel, said he ahipped the men in ublin, vvhence he went to Newport, which port he left »nd sailed for Cardiff Roads to avoid being neaped" in evyport. When they came to the roads they refused to do duty on Monday, assigning as a reasou that there were two oidinary seamen short. Mr. Quirk told them he would get the two men as soon as he could, and on Tuesday morning he had them. He was willing to take defendants on board if they would go. The men all refused to return on board. When they applied in the ruads to be taken before a magistrate the captain had called them a d-set of trash." The carpenter said that on account of being short-handed he had to heave ballast up; and he had no berth. They bad been kept on bread and water since Monday. He (the carpenter) had no place for his bed or tool chest. The captain said he had kept them on bread and water because they refused to do duty. As they obstinately declined to accept the offer made to them, they were sent to prison for seven days with hard labour. The Defendants: Thank you, Sir. THE LATE CASE OF CHILD DROPPING. Jane Matthews, the young woman who was last Thursday charged with placing her baby at the door of Mr. Con- staiuine, Trinity-street, Cardiff, (who has a single gen- tleman as a lodger) was again brought forward. The facts connected with this painful case were fully stated in our last number. The Superintendent this day said, —" She admitted to me that the child was her! and said she placed it there through starvation she thought it better that the father should keep it than that she should be burdened with it." — Mr. R. LI. Reece, who defended the prisoner, declined asking the witness any questions. —Mr. Johns, relieving officer of the Cardiff Union, said the child became chargeable to the parish of St. John's on Saturday last.—Mr. R. LI. Reece, addressed the Bench in mitigation of punishment, saying that the affair had been settled.—The magistrates committed the )oung woman to prison for seven days, there to be kept to hard labour. Jane Bennett, who assisted the defendant, was dismissed. CAUTION TO PUBLICANS. John Lewis, landlord of the Carditf Boat public-bouseo, was charged with allowing cards to be played in his house soon after five o'clock on Monday evening last.>— P.C. Shepherd was examined in support of the charge. The landlord and his wife were absent.—Mr. Lewis said he knew nothing of the case as he was from home: the cards were not his.—The Superintendent said thete had been a similar complaint against the house, some time ago. —P.C. Shepherd said there was money on the tabie and wheu the game waB over one of the two men who were playing took it up and put it in his pocket.—The Magistrates said that the evidence was not clear, and dismissed the case, with a caution to defendant. A NASTY BEASr, FROM MERTHYR, John Morgan, haulier at the Plymouth Iron Works, Merthyr-aged about 33 was charged with committing a disgusting and filthy nuisance at the front door of the Savings' Bank, Duke-itreet, at half-past five on Monday afternoon.—The defendant fully admitted his guilt. — His conduct was most inexcusable; and he was fined 5s. and 8s. costs. Paid. A ROGUE AND A VAGABOND. Thomas Landry, a young man who is probably not unknown to the police, was sent to prison for fourteen days, with hard labour, as a rogue and a vagabond. He had gone into the shop of Mr. Thomas Elliott, and had partially removed a quantity of buttons when he was de- tected and given into custody. CONFLICTING EVIDENCE. John Jones, a young luan ot deceut appearance, was charged with assaulting Mew. Jane Davies, married woman, who, on her oath, said that on Sunday night she went to the Buuch of Grapes, for a pint of beer, at her husband's request. The defendant was there, and after applying some opprobrious names to her, struck herseve- ral times, and violently ill-used her. He commenced by accusing hpr of having stated something to his mother to his discredit. The defendant denied having struck Mrs. Davies; and called Mary Ann Lewis, daughter of the landlord of the Buuch of Grapes, who swore that Mrs. Davies smacked the defendant thtee times iu his face, and called him a nasty blackguard. Thenhe pushed her out of the bar. She was positive that the defendant did not touch Mrs. Davies till she smacked him on his face. He did not strike her at all. Witness vvas present the whole time. The magistrates dismissed the case. After the magistrites had left the court, the defendant returned, bleeding from the nos", and complained that Mrs. Davies and her husband had followed him to his house, and assaulted hirn. It is his intention to prefer a charge of assault against them. He WHS accompanied by I the father of the young woman who glive evidence in his behalf, and to whom Mrs. Davies said he was paying his addresses. STEALING FROM THE PE lS">F- Elizabeth Macaithy, all unfortunate girl. was charged with s ealing tis. from the person of Thomas Cogan, while III a houst: of ill-fanle. The complainant ought to have appeared on Monday, ami as he neglected doing so, and as the magistrates saw that a conviction could not follow, tl.ey dismissed the charge. CO.Mri.AINT AGAINST A LANDLORD. Daniel Sullivan, landlord of the Butchers' Arms, Mary Ann-street, again appeared to answer the charge preferred against him, for allowing cards to be played in his house. the case was adjourned from Monday last; and as the de- fendant now pioduced evidence in support of the state- ment he then made, the matter was dismissed. ALLEGED PKRJUILY. Mr. Wm. Price, surgeon, of Porthyglo, near Ponty- pridd, appeared to answer a charge preferred against him of having wickedly, wilfully, arid corruptly com- mitted wilful and corrupt perjury' in the testimony he gave on his oath at the trial of a certain cause between William M ill ward, plaintiff, and Ann Milliard and Fre- derick Burns, defendants, at the County Court of Gla- morninheid at Cardiff, on Friday Ust. The following narrative will serve as an explanatory introduction to this case: At the last County Court held in this town, before Thomas Falconer, Esq., J„()ge, an action of icpl-vin, was tried, in winch Mr. William Milliard, of Tremrest, quarryman, was pUintiir, and Miss Ann Millwa.d (his sister) was defendant. It was brought to recover damages for an il:e!!al distress llIaile hv the latter upon the ;;oods of the forrner fill' lbe 8UIII of £in ICllt alkg.d to be due for a quarry occupied by the plaintiff, which for- merly belonged to the f„tiier of the parties to the aciion, and to which his four children were now entitled. Upon the trial it vvas proved that, irrespective of other ques- tions in dispute, the distress was made upon premises which were not demised by the defendant to the plaintiff, and the latter obtained a verdict. In supporlol the dc- fendant's case, Mr. Wi||jam Price sUrgeon, of Ponty- pridd, tendered himself as a witness, and having given evidence of a contract between the parties respecting the premises iu question was severely cross examined by the plaintiffs attorney, as to the part he took in the matter, when he gave such answers as led to the charge of perjury being preferred against him this day. On the case being called on, Mr. Price, (with whos'j personal appearance most of'our leaders are tam'iliar) said he had to request an adjournment. He had received t ie summons hue on Tuesday night, al)l' '*ad since no time to consult a professional man "on the subject, neither had he time to procure witnesses. ultimately applied tor an adjournment to the :)J) or Illh o' April. Mr. John Bird obj -cted to THE adjournment and con- tended that Mr. Price had had reasonable notice—amply sullieietit lor all pur poses, A bi ief but de;.ul t orv conversaiio'i f 'tlo wed. At lengta the Magistrates adjourned ill- caS, to the 4th of April. Mr. Price touk a technical objection to the summons; "lit tho Clerk said he had cured any informality by ap- pearing to answer the charge io obedience to the summons.
At the Middlesex Sessions, held on thp 14th instant. Joseph Dye, a:;ed I!}, and John Webb, aged l'J, pleaded guilty to having stolen a portmanteau and other articles, value 2;"). the property of Sir Joseph Baiiey. It ap- peared that Jordan, 1:!4 H, between two and three o'clock 0n the morning 0f the 2(5th 0f last month, was 0n his beat iu Belgrave-square and vvas attiacted to the area ot No. 26, Sir Joseph Bailey's house, by a stiong smell of oil. Hearing a sound of talking, he informed Sej^ant Rod- well of his suspicions, and, accompanied by him, went down into the area and into the cellar, the door 01 which had been forced open, and there found the prisoners both I dlunk with empty bottles I)ing near them. Webb, who could articulate, said they had come ill to have a sleep, as they had no other place to sleep 10, but Dye was past talking, and lay unconsciously on the floor. Y\ ebb made a feeble attempt to conceal a corkscrew, but ltodvvell wrested it from him, and on further searCd they fouud the portmanteau, packed with six bottles of wine and some brushes. The prisoners had forced opcatttedoor and got their booty ready to carry off, but being in such good company as Sir Joseph Bailey's old port could not resist having a taste 1 the result was, that after consuming one bottle of that liquor, two of sherry, and two bottles of ale, they were so overcome that they were surprised by the police, as has been stated. A previous conviction was proved against the prisoner Dye, and he was sen- tenced to 12 months' and Webb to six months' imprison- ment, with hard labour. JEWISH DISABILITIES BILL.

MELU'HYR AND NEIGHIVHJiUI<)<> =» INQUEST, — An ii.quest was h-d on the 11Th iiM., before John Morgan, ESQ dpp ity coioner, nnon the body of Jane Mniriwaring, aged 01. living at Mill-street, who had a fr on the 10th, and (he) half an hour after- j wards. Nir. Russril, 11, surgeon, WAS PROMPTLY in attendance; but medical assistance Was of no avail. MUTINY. -There has BEEN a mutmv AMINE thf masons during the past week, an,1 a demand made toi an advance of sixpence per day but as there has been an advance recently given, the masters are not disposed to concede the second demand as yet. There was a meeting of masons at the Rainbow on a recent occasion; but owing to the potency of Sir John Barleycorn, the business did not go on as smoothly as could have been desired and the meeting terminated without any sub- stantial result. A Row AMONG THB SHOEMAKERS.—The followers of Saint Crispin have also risen in rebellion, and, to the number of Seventy persons, assembled in the Market- square, on Monday last. From thence they adjourned to the Red Lion tavern, Glebeland, "quietly and civilly," so says the report before us; and there they held a meet- ing, at which it was agreed to demand a further advance of wages. A second meeting was convened for Saturday night, and will doubtless be numerously attended, for the knights of the awl are very numerous in this locality, and are very remarkable for keeping their promises, and telling the truth! A WORD ABOUT BODKINS.—The knights of the thimble, too, have risen in fiat rebellion, and are about to form themselves into a society, for the protection of the interests of the working tailors, and one or two meetings have been held for this purpose. But their employers are exceedingly wroth, and declare such things to be quite preposterous, in which opinion we do not agree. It it quite right and proper that the tailors, as well as other craftsmen, should meet for mutual protection, and or- ganise themselves into a society: but we question the wisdom of seeking counsel from the beer-barrel, and may safely assert that the road to independence is not through the temple of Bacchus. SOMETHING NEW.—In our school days it used to be laid down as a fixed and unchanging fact, that the number of days allotted to the month of April was neither more nor less than thirty but on account of good behaviour, or some other cause, perhaps to keep pace with the go-a- head age in which we live, we find that April has been promoted; in former times we used to say,— Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November, February has twenty-eight alone. And all the rest have thirty-one. But it is clear that the rising generation must change the song, for we learn from the following handbill that April's days are thirty and one Going to Australia. -Notice.AII persons having pledged goods at the shop of Mr. Solomon Bloom, pawnbroker, High-street, Dow- lais, are hereby informed, that unless the same be re- deemed by the 31st of April next, 1853, they will be sold by auction to recover expenses, &c., as the proprietor intends leaving the neighbourhood for Australia after the above date.—2nd March, 1853." LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH.—There was no meeting of the Local Board on Monday. The election campaign appears to have been commenced with spirit; and if car- ried on, will result in a contest; but as what may be termed the opposition is broken up into small and isolated fragments, and has displayed, so far, but very little generalship, it requires no great amount of discernment to perceive how the election will terminate. The members going out, are Messrs. A. Hill, C. H. James, D. W. James, B. Martin, and S. Thomas; and these, with two deceased members, leave seven vacancies. To fill these seven lists of persons have been proposed and as the large portion of the persons proposed are really eligible men, it speaks well for the place, that it has so many inhabitants who give promise of future usefulness; but the estimation in which the persons proposed are held by their townsmen, may be inferred from the tabular statement here subjoined. The first list sent in was that of Mr. J. H. Goodere: this is what may be termed the town list; and the whole are here numbered in the order in which they were presented at the office of the Clerk of the Local Board :-1, Town list; 2, Mr. Josiah Atkins; 3, Mr. Thomas Williams, Victoria-street; 4, Mr. Arthur Owen Davies, Dowlais; 5, Mr. William Meredith; 6, Mr. John Ancell; 7,the Ironmasters' List sent in from Cyfartbfa office. Mauy of these lists embrace the names of the same parties and the names of the candidates and their proposers are here given 1. Mr. Anthony Hill, proposed in Nos. 1 2 3 6 7 2. „ B. Martin. 123 67 3.

They are much to be commended for so doing and we are glad to find them acting in har- mony. The joint list is one well deserving of public support; and, with such a combination in favour of so fair a list, a contest would be worae than useless. We have reason to believe, however, that some of these lists will be withdrawn and it is to be hoped that a fruitless contest will be avoided for it is evident from the above statement that the first teven names are those alone which have any chances of success. BRISTOL DISTRICT COURT OF BANKRUPTCY.—Tuesday. -Re David Williams, Grocer, grc.. Dowlais.—- His Honour decided that this petition should be annulled on the ground that it was filed by the brother-in-law and sister of the bankrupt for his exclusive benefit, and not with a view to the benefit of creditors, and that it be annulled with costs against the petitioning creditor.
A BEIID A RE. On the 11th instant died, aged 18 years, after a lone and painful illness, to the great grief of his friends, Wm. Evans, the eldest son of Mr. Thomas Evaus, parish clerk. His remains were deposited in the church-yard of the above place, on the Friday following, attended by the children of the National Schools, the Parochial Clergy, and the most respectable portion of the tradespeople and inhabitants of Aberdare. THE deceased was a young man of great promise, most exemplary piety, and beloved by all who knew him. He had been a pupil teacher for four years at Saint Mary's School. Cardiff, during which time he gained the respect of all, and evinced signs of very superior ability. He fully obeyed the injunction of Solomon Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth." Though young in jeirs, yet he vvas an example, both to the young and old, W'LAT A TRUE Christian ought to be. His complaint WAS consumption, a disease which proves so fatal to the human family, but he bore it AIL with great Christian fortitude, was fully resigned to leave this vale of tears, relying on the merits of his Redeemer, hoping through His atonement to obtain a far better an brighter world. "The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord."
NEWPORT AND NEIGHBOURHOOD. FATAL COLLIERY EXPLOSION. 10 Again vve have to rep.irt a fri,I).. ful colliery exnlosion in the Kisi-a Val. near Newport, in the county of Monmouth, by which seven Yo'ln!,j men and boys were suddenly hurried into eternity, and 13 more or less injured, so that four of the unfortunate meu are not expected to survive the fright- tul BUT NINGS from which they are now suffering. The sea; 11 of coal in which this explosion took place, Oil Saturday evening la^R. is known as the Black Vein, from wh cia Mr. John RUSSELL, the proprietor, has for g-une ti ne past supplied the West India Maithoa-s.

A few moments' delay would have been fatal to many a poor fellow who U >w lives to rejoice at HIS siiety. llr. Green, ibe mineral agent, who has had, unfortunately, great experience in similar catastrophes, immediately that the intelligence retched the surface, gathered together a number of men, and descended the Black Vein pit, and on reaching the level made search for the men who were in the heading*. The" choke damp" was still pouring out from the still where the explosion had taken place, and Mr. Green and his men were driven back by its overpowering effect; but after many attempts the men were enabled to get in, having turned on an indraught of fresh air to drive back the damp. 011 exploring the headings they came upon the dead and the dying, and dragged the inanimate bodies to the main level, where, on proper remedies being applied to some who were thought still alive, they were restored to consciousness. In three hours after the explosion all the unfortunate men who were injured, and the dead bodies, were brought to the sur- face, where a distressing SPECTACLE was prcsented-falhers and mothers looking fortheir children, sisters for thei:' brothers, and all mourning and apprehensive. The dead were borne 011 boards to the homes wh'ch they had left that morning lull ot vigorous life, and the whole valley was filled with lamentation. The persons killed are chiefly young men.

TIlE CASE OF MRS, C'UMVII>G.— A bout two years AEO, a commission of lunacy vvas taken not against this truly unfortunate lady, AN Lord Justice Kniuht Bruce very pathetically described her, and, after an inquiry that lasted several days, thp jury found hilt she was insane "lid incapable of managing her own Ittf..irs. The costs of the proceeding amounted to seveial thousand pounds, which, of course, will be paid out of t he estate." Soon afler the verdict, II!, application wax MA LE to thp then Lord Chanc"lIor ( LOMI 5,1. LEONARDS) 011 the pMt vI MRS Cumming, that she might be allowed to traverse, or, iu plain English, set aside the iuquisition and finding of the jury. The case WAS argued at considerable length on both sides, and on the 27th of March last the Lord Chancellor gave judgment, allo. in doing so, said he had examined the alleged lunatic in his private room, aud had represented to her the consequences that would result from granting her application, more particularly with reference to the very great additional expense which would thereby be incurred, and on that point he found her as rational and as sane as any person he had ever conversed with; and yviihout making ieference to any particular delusions under which she was said to labour, and relative to which he would not express any opinion, she appeared to him to be perfectly competent to judge whether she wished the traverse to be allowed or not. On that question she was evidently competent to form and express an opinion. When she was before him. she was as saDe, as rational, and as free from violence as any person with whom he had ever conversed. She ex- pressed her desire that the traverse should issue, although he had informed her of the probable extent to which her property would thereby be perilled. She declared she was content to make any sacrifice, and submit to any terms, by which she might obtain liberty of action. She satisfied his mind that her present application was made of her own free will. His lordship, in conclusion, said- "She is now seveuty-six years of age, and it would be a reproach to both sides if any further expenses were in- curred than what were absolutely necessary. Eight counsel had formerly been employed—five on one side, and three on the other. 10 order to lessen the future expenses, he would only allow two counsel on each side during the next inquiry." His lordship then directed the traverse to issue. Since then the case has been frequently before the Court on further directions" or to be spoken to," and it was suggested at last that the parties would come to some arrangement; but at length it is decided that the case must go on, and it will do so until there is not a shilling of the unfortunate lady's pro. perty left to squabble about. Really such a state ofthiug: is a disgrace to a civilised country.
CORRESPONDENCE. LLANDOVERY INSTITUTION. To the Editor of the Cardiff and Merthyr Guardian. Cloudland, March 17th, 1853. SIR, —I live in an aerial spot, and to-day is Saint Patrick's-day. You ought not to be surprised, therefore, if I were going to treat on matters which are altogether visionary. But I grieve to say it that my burden is on a subject which is as much of a matter of fact, as it is painful to me, degrading to my country, and the loss of every one who has at heart the well-being of the Education of the Principality. You had a letter last week written by one PHILO- PATRIS, which was a good sensible letter enough, but it did not probe the question suiffciently. What he has left undone I now mean to do. I will place before you a simple statement of facts connected with the late ap- pointment to the Wardenship of Llandovery: your read- ers then will be able to judge how the Trustees have accounted for their stewardship. It is better to name the Trustees: they are a public body, managing a public institution, charged with public mouey; they are therefore responsible to the public for their acts. They consist of Lady Hall; the Vicar of Llandovery Mr. Johnes, of Dolacauthy Mr. Jones, ofCefomaes; and Mr. Rees, printer and publisher, of Llandovery. The institution is an en- dowment founded hy a patriotic Welshman, whose sole idea was to see his countrymen filling other and more substantial positions in life than simply that of bearded Bards and delirious Druids. We shall, however, see in the sequel what has been the predominant idea in the minda of the Trustees. The endowment is £ 140 per annum; and a good efficient master might make it any day worth £1000 per annum, besides making it a blessing to the whole country. It consists of a noble pile of building, superior to anything of the kind in Wales, infinitely so to Lampeter. This was built by a subscrip- tion which poured in from all parts of Wales, partly out of respect to the name with which the late Warden started, and partly from a consciousness of the great want which the Principality suffered from in this respect. Four thousand pounds were subscribed and expended. There is also a sum of £300 per annum for a Professor, JE2000 for the institution of two Scholarships, and a foundation for twenty free Scholars. Here is something to start with, and to contend for. When the late vacancy was declared, a number of candidates offered themselves. Among them was one very eminent man his career in the University of Oxford proves this, where he took an University Scholarship; and, as one of the Examiners told me himself at the time, he considered him one of the best Greek Scholars the University of Oxford ever turned out. If any one has any doubt upon this subject, let him consult the collection of Greek Verses published by Dr. Kennedy, the Head of Shrewsbury School, and let him there read the Translations written by the Rev. Basil Jones, Fellow of University College, Oxford, especially his witty and humourous translation of Lord Bateman was a Noble Lord." But Classical Scholarship was not the only acquirement Mr. Basil Jones could offer to the acceptance of the Trustees. lie is an eminently success- ful Welsh Antiquary. His book on the "Vestiges of the Gael in Gwynedd" has obtained an European cele- brity in every Antiquarian Society. He is a large con- tributor to the" Archaeologia Cambrensis." He is alw sufficiently acquainted with the Welsh language to speak, read, and preach it; but he does not know it, I admit, according to "the manner of Gwent and Morganwg;" nor has he written a book on Bards and Druids," and, I believe, never made a speech at the triennial gathering at Abergavenny. However, he is a good Welsh Scholar, well acquainted, moreover, with the French language, and an excellent Draughtsman. In fact, he has every qualilication necessary to make an imtitutioll like Llan- dovery of incalculable benefit to any country. Yet, this man, these precious Trustees have rejected And whom do you suppose they have appoiuted! Why, a man whose only qualification that I can see—and I have his testimonials now before me-is that he was once some Domine at some Do-the-Boys Hall, in Yorkshire. Here it is — Daring the seven years that Mr. James assisted me at Almondbury. he had the sole charge of the dutl.8 lit the Parish Church, and 11180 the eme of eight or ten pr, vate parrklllarly the attention he bestowed ou their "grammar," (that is, norn;nati»e, hie, haec, hoc, genitive hujas, dative, tiiuc !—there's a testimonial I) "and coai- •' PLl.ilion." That is the testimony of the Vicar of Almondbury, who, together with some four or five Welshmen in that district, is afflicted, poor man,every tirst of March,witha degree of madness, as painful to his friends, and as intermittent yearly, as that which visits that unhappy creature in lJatural history, called a Marcli Hare. Thea we 11I.\e some more testimonials, all from private frit"1ld. One only is there respectable and fiom a compe- ter" person. This, however, ill damnatory it is from Mr. Hovvson, late fellow of Triuitv, Cambridge, and now Principal' uf the Collegiate Institution, Liverpool. It consists of 0111) six line.-verJ s'1,çnifi,:ant this -alj,! all it amouuts to is, That Mr. James has a clear and suc- cessful way of communicating knowledge," — but he sap lIothillg whether it is 8cllOlrulic or pulpit knowledge THAT he is daily increasing tiin own literary sources," and "that he is fully aicare of the real wants of a modern plan of insii uclion. We 110, not core for this'. We want to know if he ctin himself impart it. I hat is lhe question atissue. Not his appreciation of what edu- cation omjht 10 be; but is he able himself to educate? Then we have a whole host of letters from Curates, In- cumbents, and every g-mus of unknown people, which to every other hndy nf Trustees w\lul1 be as s.¡tís:actnryas if they hr,J dropped fruln the moon. We must, how- ever, merlliun oue 1:13n of note, "Samuel Holmes, E-q., Mayor of Liverpool" — an excellent after-dinner speech- maker, an I vve should say the best judge of Baltic lim- ber an" Canada pine in thc country but we very much doubt if cur 01,1 friend Holmes —for he is a friend uf Mlrs ever got so far as Propria qua Mirii'ti,, or Vcr'ium Pefsonnle, certainly never l nr.ouaii lhe Latin Grammar. Ye; t his is tiJ" mau whose at); I) iO:1 is to overrule what >-h:i I be the classical and clerical knoivlelge of Young \1. There is, however, one more, and really vve had almost foigotton his tesiimooial. He is the tespecte l, milch loved, patriotic, loyal, ;id enthusiastic Squire of Aberpergwm. He describes Mr. James as "eminently qualified,and so highly does he estimate his quakfi- cations that he has consulted him on the subject ot his children's educ,.¡tioll." Holding the views he does, I do not think Mr. Williams could consult a better. I, however, as one ot the niariy who do not think that the highest qu iliti -ation a Welshman can aspiie to is that of being a Bard or Druid, beg leave to differ very strongly from Mr. Williams and, as one feeling much interest in thai institution, 1 have a right to make my '.ti Here nee known, and protest ou Lehulf of the public in Ihp strongest lmguage I C'ill make u, of, of [tie very unrighteous manner in whieh tll": trustees have exercised tile trust commine l to them. I speak ftiifhorit.-itirely, and as Ihe or.-an of some of the largest subscribers 10 the institution, and I take this method or letting them know lhe dis.tjipi oval with \\hie:1 their act is everywhere regarded. It has 10used II degree of indignation iu the neighbourhood even or Llatidt-very itself, which is already ope.atiug oa thc success "f t'c school. A very large subscriber, and all influential 1'l1Jdn\ner-unc of the largest ill Wales — writing to me on the subject, says, —" The subscribers are jusliy i:¡- dignant at all this-- thev say their money has been throw n away, and I have h .-ard s mie make use (,;1' much stronger expressions. The school has become abyewotd and a 1 laughing stock,—from about MO (here arc now pupils only, and of these there is a provision lor twen:j ot: the foundation, so that they are educated !ot- nothing." This, Sir, becomes of our n.'ioual madness about Druidis/n and Bardi*m. A splendid institution is ruined. For I venture to say it, and I challenge the trustees to contradict it, —.»/ James has been elected for n,) othir reason but because he has been CLIOnt crerj • national rendezvous of thv Lrauitics of the Xr/nni — B 1ST UL) DVO D AU and UOIISKOU vU. I have ever lilttd up 1 my voice against these absurdities, and, (jod help me, I ever will. 1 have years ago shewn their positive and direct evils. Hete'we have now one of ti.cir indirect results, and the education of the ci.unt.ry is to soiler for it. Mr. James may be, and 1 believe is an estimable parish priest, and much respected in the district he lives. But these are not the only qualifications necessary to be lhe head of an institution like Llandovery. lie may, also, for aught I know, have a considei able knowledge of gender and nouns," and grammar and compost- iion," as his partisans testify. But I want proofs o! it, and froll) IlIell who are competent to give it me. I deny the competency of anyone of those in the testimonies before me, except Mr. Ilowson's; and his testimonial, as given, amounts to nothing. Writhe evidence then before me, I charge the trustees of Llandovery with a great dereliction of duly in havitnj rejected Mr, Basil J~>nes, and given the pte'erence to a man who cannot, or, at all events, who has not produced any proofs of scholar- ship. And while this is the ease, 1 have u right to ask 1 hem, on behaf of the subsetibers, and those who are most interested iu the institution, at whose special desire, as well as from my own feelings of indignation, being also not a little interested in it myself, I make this re- quest: On what grounds did they give the preference to Mr. James, who is 110 university, or even cullejre man, who has produced the most ridiculous testimonies, over Mr. Basil Jones, who is one of the best scholars of the day 1 If they shelter themselves by saying, that they will pay no atteution to au anonymous wriier, then I promioe them, thal I "ill make my real IP11II.. as public as I make Ihis, provided they will, 011 the other baud, answer the question I have put til them aud lay it before I he po blic. But they know my name. It is too well connected with the exposition 01 lhe abuses and follies of Wales not to be known to them, though for: he pllrpose of giving the indignation 1 feel at. their act, its fuil scope, I choose to sign mv self new, GEORGE ROBF.RT AlltY; A DW £ LI.EU IN CJ C CDLAND. To the Editor of the Cardiff'and Merthyr Guaraian. Llanvnplwy Parsonage, MARCH 15, 1*53. DEAR Slit,—Though you declined to insert the peti- DE,ktt Si.-t,I'hnui tion of the Clergy of this Diocese against the relaxation of those laws which prevent THE OPEN des"cration of TBE Lorn'< ity, you would not, I am sure, willingly misre- present our feelings on this imnor'ant subject. I must, THEREFORE, request that you will coirect the imp:ession convened in your last publication 0: the ,» upw irds of fO of th" Clergy have signed the petition and receive my assurance that the signatures are up 10 this date I49 in number. while iti the Archdeaconry of Llandaff there are but 13 parishes whose officiating ministers are not found on this list, and of those probably whose names are yet wanting, the greater part accord with their.brethren, though absence or other causes may have preveuied them from attaching their signatures to the petition. From none have I received any notice of dissent from its praver. Respwtfollv vours, THOMAS WILLIAMS. [We declined to insert the petition referred to, because we considered that by doing so we should be violating an engagement, voluntarily entered into with our Diocesan, not to insert any communications from clergymen, on the Sabbath question, either on one side or the other." We were subsequently informed by our respected corre- spondent that the Bishop had sanctioned the publication of the petition but as it would reopen a question that bad been closed, and would certainly cause other parties to enter into a fresh correspondence on the subject, we resolved to adhere to our original determination.—ED.]
CORPORAL CAT! OUTRAGES ON WOMEN AND CHILDREN'S BILL. —Mr. FITIKOT. Mr. Phinn suggested that corporal punishment would be properly applied to cases of this description." You are right, Mr. Phinnl I'd go twenty miles afoot, NOR think it any sin, To see tied up the brute, Stripped to his naked skin! More, Mr. Phinn, than that— Myself" would take the cat, And lend nine-tailed-puss a claw; Let the rascal writhe and flinch, I would not leave an inch Not scariled and raw. Again-again-lay on— Strike harder-quick-er- Cut where the nerves lie thicker! But the monster's breath is gone- So drop him on the straw. Recover him with brine, And again invoke the nine," Till from chitterling to chine, In his own F,ed Ink 'tis written- "Thus was the rascal smitten, And thus his hide was flay'd, WHO COULD MALTREAT A WOMAN—wife—or maid." But doggrel rhymes forego, For some will think them low, Yet doygrel best becomes a beaten hound,) So a serious a mort let us sound. For cruel men no torment is severe- For them compassion has nor sigh nor tear; Angels, on ministries of mercy sent, With eyes undimmed can view their punishment. 8"
