MERTHYR. AND NEIGHBOURHOOD. Sir George Tyler, M.l\, and Mr. ii. A. B. uce, M.P., had an interview with ;scount Catmint, at the G.-ncral Post-officc, on e ines lay, the S.h ins! to represent the unsatisfactory state ot the postal arrangements between Caidiff and Meitnyr and Aberdare. 'i lie clai,.ii ef -k b,r- dare to be raised to the dignity of a post town, and the loss of time which arose from the detention of its letters at Pontypridd were also urged. Viscount Canning pro- mised his immediate attention to both subjects, arid an early answer to the memorials which were presented b; Mr. Bruce fn.m -Merthyr and Aberdare. Mr. Divett. M.Pj. was unfortunately prevented bv illness from at- tend^ and Mr. C. Bailey, M.P., by absence from town. The Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas has appointed Mr. John Morgan, solicitor, Merthyr 1 ydfil, to be a perpetual commissioner for taking the acknowledgment of deeds executed by m .rried women. under the Act for the Abolition of Fines and Recoveries. REBECCA. Mistress'liecca, of gate-breaking celebrity, appears still to be in the land of the living," if we may judge from the notices posted up at Builth and Brecon, though her grammar continues defective, and her Eng- lish is by no means of the highest order. A copy of the notice was posted up this week, near the Yale of Neath Railway Station, by some Merthyr disciple; and as it attracted some attention on the walls of the terminus, we give it still greater publicity Merthyr Feb 1S54. TAKE NOTICE To All Flour dealers, all corn f.ctors and farmers, that shall be Found Concocting together to rise the price of eatables corn, bread, flour, cheese, but'er and meat, Anv farmer thnt shall be found out holding bick, not bringing is corn to Market shall be dealt with according to my law, as he is shedding the blood of the Innocent, under the disguise of honest men, Let them look to themselves for my eye is upon them and I shall not spare, for my law is severe. REBECCA." INQUESTS.—Two inquests were held on the 4th inst. One of those was held before the Deputy Coroner, at the Star Inn, on the body of Edward Jacob, aged (j8 years, who came to his death, according to the verdict of the jury, suddenly and by the visitation of God. The other was held before the same coroner, at Tir-y- Gwehydd, or the Weaver's Land, Llanwonno, on the body of Nicholas Herbert, aged "25 years, who was accidentally drowned in the river Rhondda Vach. The verdict was to the effect that he came to his death acci- dentally and by misfortune.- On the 26th ult., at the Rolling Mill, Cyfarthfa, an inquest was held before John Morgan, Esq., Deputy Coroner, on the body of Jane Roberts, aged four years, who accidentally fell into a kettle of boiling water, and was scalded to death. Yer- dict, accidental death.—Ou the same day, before the same coroner, an inques'. was held at the White Hart, Abereannaid, on the body ci Elizabeth Williams, a<»ed 8 years, who wa- found drowned in the Glamorganshire Canal. The jury found that she came to her death, accidentally and by misfortune. KHYMNEY. — On Tuesday evening, the 7th instant, the Rhymnrfy Church singers, to the number of forty two, were hospitably entertained at the Parsonage, by the Rev. L. Edwards and his benevolent lady. Grace before and after supper was solemnly sung, and with striking effect, by the whole choir. After having partakeu of the plentiful and sumptuous repast provided, several pieces were sang by the well-known choir, in its usual and masterly style. Andrew Buchan, Esq., the much re- spected churchwarden of the parish, with his wonted kindness and frienoly disposition, contributed in no small degree to the happiness of the guests. At a sea- sonable hour of the night the party broke up, apparently very high!) gratified with the kind reception and un- bounded hospitality met with at the Parsonage. Such friendly meetings betweeu a minister and his thck can- not filii to produce mutual esteem and beneficial results. STUBBORN FACTS FOR THE ADVOCATES OF TEM- PERANCE.— Mr. t owier, the popular stipendiary magis- J trs.teot the district, in his highly entertaining and instructive lecture on Tuesday night upon Crime and its Antidotes," state as his opinion, that drink was the cause, directly 01 indirectly, of nineteen out of twenty of the offences committed. In proof, to some extent how- ever, of the correctness of that assertion, seveuteen per- sons have been this week charged before the magis- trates at Merthyr, and upou inquiring of Mr. Wreun, the Superintendent of Police, who, from his Ion; resi- dence and experience, knows the persons charged and their antecedents, we were informed, and have permis- sion to slate upon his authori ty, thatdrink had more or less to do with the guilt of sixteen out of the seventeen persons charged: The seventeenth was a Jew and a stranger of whom he knew nothing. These are facts worthy of the consideration of all advocates of progress and social improvement. A full outline of Mr. Fowler's admirable lecture, shall be given in our next.
