WTKAJ)E OF THE POUT. EXPORTS FOR JUNE. The exports for June show a more considerable fall- ing off in the amount of coal sent to foreign ports than was anticipated. For some time the great complaint of the coalowners, in addition to the universal stagna- tion of trade, has been the want of suitable tonnage but it wa3 known that many vessels of very heavy register entered the port in the latter part of June, and it was hoped that these would bring up the ton- nage register of the month to an equality with other months, if it was not in excess. The departures for the month exceeded by 100 the departures of many months preceding, but the published returns show that of the 757 vessels which left the Docks during June, only 349 were engaged in the oversea trade, and many of these were of a lower register tonnage than the average. The amount of coals shipped in June gave an average register of 450 tons but the average for May was 4S6 tons, and this was a low register, the usual average being 500 tons. In this respect Cardiff takes the lead of any coal shipping port in the kingdom, the average of Newcastle being 316 tons. At Hartle- pool it is 239 tons, at Liverpool 237 tons, and at North Shields 435 tons. The coal exporting ports of England are 33 in number, 29 of which form what are termed the Northern ports, and 4 the South Wales ports. Of the 29 Northern ports the only place at all equal to Cardiff is Newcastle, and before the late change in the Admiralty order respecting the admixture of North Country with South Wales coal, Newcastle frequently occupied a secondary position. Even now the returns show a very slight excess over Cardiff'. Many of the Northern ports are comparatively insig- nificant ones, not sending more coals to foreign ports in a month than we ship in a single day. The total amount of coal shipped from the whole of the coal ports of the country amounted in June last to 1,471,776 tons, and in June, 1868, to 1,1)58,658 tons. Of the amount shipped last month, 729,461 tons were sent oversea, and 742,351 tons were consumed in the home trade. Of the 729,401 tons shipped oversea, 484, S51 tons were shipped from 24 Northern coal ports, and 244,610, or nearly one-third of the whole export trade, were shipped from the South Wales ports. In the home trade, of the 742,351 tons shipped 202,436, or nearly one-third, were also shipped from the South Wales ports. The stagnation which has been fre- quently referred to as existing in the South Wales ports extend all over England, and in all the principal ports the decrease in the oversea trade is very consider- able. Newcastle shows a decrease of more than 30,000 tons for June, Sunderland and Hartlepool a'decrease of more than 11,000 tons each, Liverpool a falling off of nearly one-half, Glasgow a reduction from 11,000 to 2,000 tons, while other Northern ports show a similar reduction. In the South Wales ports the falling off is considerable. Cardiff shows a decrease of 25,000 tons, Swansea and Newport each a falling off of about 6,000 tons, and Llanelly 3,000 tons. In the home trade, which was formerly almost entirely absorbed by the Northern ports, Newcastle, Sunderland, and Hartlepool show a falling off while Cardiff, Swansea, and Newport show a considerable increase. This increase in the South Wales home trade will account for the large number of arrivals and departures, with the small amount of coal shipped for foreign ports. SOUTH WALES EXPORTS FOR JUNE.

New York has taken 7,917 tons of rails Cronstadt, 6,867 tons; Bangor, 1,128tons San Fran- .go cisco, 1,752 tons Porto Rico, 911 tons Galatz, 1,734 tons and Stettin, 1,300 tons. The amount of bar iron shipped has been very small; while the total shipments of iron nearly equal those for April, which was the heaviest month for shipments of iron that has been known for some time. The shipments of iron for the year up to the present time far exceed those of last year. CARDIFF EXPORTS FOR 1869. Coal. Iron. Coke. P. Fuel.

The arrivals during the past week have been very limited, and the amount of business done has been small, with the exception of several heavy shiploads of iron sent to America. In the coasting trade there is very little doing, and the Canal is bare. The Docks are full, but little business is in hand, and offers for freights are numerous. The work at the collieries is still slack, and nearly all of them are only in partial operation. Freights to most places are slightly on the decline.
MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT. Tuesday evening, off North Woolwich, a pleasure boat wa-: upset by the swell occa- sioned by a large saloon steamer proceeding on its way up the river from Gravesend to London, and five young men, who were out rowing, were immersed in the water. Four of them swam to the shore, but the fifth (Mr. Gates) it is supposed, could not get clear of the boat, and was picked up almost lifeless. For two hours Drs. Allinson and Coleman, of Woolwich, were in hopes of restoring animation, but the deceased sank under the shock to the system. Mr. Gates is the grandson of Cap- tain Gates, on the retired half-pay list of quartermasters, Royal Artillery. THE SEA BIRDS ACT.-A conviction under this Act occurred at Bridlington on Saturday last. Mr. Frazer, indiarubber manufacturer, Sheffield, was charged before a bench of East Yorkshire magistrates with having shot 28 seagulls at Flamborough-head. The defendant was fined in the mitigated penalty of 2s. 6d. for each bird, and 9s. costs. The full penalty for each bird is zgl. GALLANT CONDUCT OF SIR MASSEY LOPES. M.P.- On Sunday afternoon the wife of Mr. Dance, of Broadley Farm, and her infant son were returning from Beerferris to Tamerton Foliott in a spring cart, and while crossing Chucksford the horse was carried off the road into deep water, the tide flowing with great rapidity at the time. Mrs. Dance, losing all coutrol over the horse, shouted for help, and her cries being heard by Sir Massey Lopes, the hon. baronet, after vainly endeavouring to get admission to the boat-house, which was locked, and the key thereof in possession of the boatman, who was absent, rushed to the assistance of the unfortunate woman and her infant, and having divested himself of his outer clothing he went into the stream, and with the help of one or two persons around succeeded in rescuing the mother and child. They were at once taken to the residence of Sir Massey, and there received every care and attention. Stimulants were administered, and fresh clothing sup- plied by Mrs. Collis, the housekeeper. There is no doubt that but for the timely arrival of Sir. Massey both Mrs. Dance and her child would have been drowned. BIGAMY CASE —A somewhat sensational bigamy case attracted the public attention a few weeks ago, in which a lady from Scarborough, after a three weeks' acquaint- ance, married a plausible wen-looking scoundrel whom she met at a railway station, and who obtained posses- sion of JE700 which she had invested in the Funds. The gay deceiver was subsequently given into custody, when it was found that he had been married before, and that his first wife was still alive. He was on Wednesday in- dicted for bigamy at the Central Criminal Court, and pleaded guilty. Next day he was sentenced to be kept in penal servitude for five years. SUICIDE AT WALWORTH.—Thursday morning the coroner for East Surrey held an inquiry at Newington 't workhouse, respecting the death of John Snake Hum- phreys, aged 68 years. The evidence showed that the deceased was a master harness maker, residing at Bar- low-street, Newington, but had been in a desponding state of mind for some time past. On last Monday morning he was found lying in bed with his head nearly severed from the body. A verdict of suicide while under temporary insanity was returned. DANGER OF CHILDREN PLAYING WITH LUCIFER MATCHES.—On Wednesday, firemen on duty at the Crystal Palace were called to extinguish a fire raging in the grounds of Mr. D. Child, a carman, situate in the Red Road, Gipsey Hill, Upper Norwood. The engines were drawn out of the Palace and taken to the spot, when it was found that some children, whilst playing with Lucifer Matches, had set fire to a stack of hay. The firemen, however, managed to confine the fire to only one stack. Mr. Child was not insured.—Standard, 12th August, 1863.-Accidents of this kind could not possibly arise with Bryant and May's Patent Special Safety Match which ignites only on the box.

FATAL COLLIERY ACCIDENT.—A sad accident occurred at the Alexandra Colliery, Sutton, near St. Helens, on Monday, resulting in the loss of two lives, and serious injury "to three miners, who were working in the Russia Park mine of the pit. Some of the roads in the pit wanted repair, and advantage was taken of the absence of many of the men from the pit to repair and prop up the roof. Five men were set to do the work, under the charge of Mr. Joseph Hopton, the fireman Suddenly a large mass of earth fell, burying two of the five and seriously injuring the other three. Mr. Hopton had just left the spot when the accident occurrcd. NEW YORK, JULY 13.—A riot took place here last night, a procession of OraDgemen being attacked by a party of Catholics. Thirty persons were injured, but the police succeeded in quelling the disturbance. RAILWAY ACCIDENT.—A shocking railway accident occurred on the new branch loop line between Devvsbury and Heckmondwike on Monday afternoon. Instead of stopping at the Ravensthorpe station it dashed on, cut- ting off the head and feet of a porter named Crossley and scattering his viscera about the line. GEORGE HUDSON.— At a meeting held at York on Monday, it was reported that the sum raised for Mr. George Hudson already reaches £ 4,400. which will be sufficient to purchase a:i annuity of £ 512 per annum for him.

NEWPORT REGATTA. The above event, which has been looked forward to with a considerable degree of interest by the Newport- onians, in consequent of the number of prizes .offered for competition being more in number than on any pre- vious occasion, commenced on Wendesday. On the conrse, which was direct to the Spit buoy, from thence to the buoy off Weston, thence to the southward of the Steep Holmes, and then direct to the Lightship, from which the homeward course was taken to the north of the Flat Holmes, and from thence direct to the winning mark at the mouth of the Newport river. The weather was gloriously fine, the wind, on starting, blow- ing a light breeze from the north but as the pilot boats and yachts got clear into the channel, the wind began to freshen, and a smart breeze from the W.N.W. set in, and continued until the winning mark WHS reached. Aground continued until the winning mark WHS reached. Aground swell set in about mid-day. but the breeze was no stiffer than on the day of the previous regatta, when a Swansea pilot was the winner of the first prize but on Wednes- day the All Comers' Pilot Prize was won by the J. N. Knapp, owned by Mr. T. Davies, a pilot of the port of Newport and never was a finer race witnessed than that of Wednesday up Channel the Newport, Cardiff, and Swansea pilot boats sailing in close proximity to each other when off Cardiff, and in this order they con- tinued home. The Newport pilot boats started first, the all-comers next, and the yachts lasts, about five minutes intervening between each. On starting Mr. Henry Ray's pilot boat took the lead, closely followed by the Mystery, belonging to Mr. Thomas Jones, of the port of Newport, the others being pretty well together. At the Spit buoy Mr. T. Jones's Esther was leading, the Mystery beingsecond. The Holmes was reached at 12.55, the Esther still leading, but here her mainsail broke, and delayed her a con- siderable time. and the Mystery then took the lead, Mr. W. Ray's William being close in her wake. On reach- ing the Lightship, the J. M. Knapp (all comers) was leading, closely followed by the Mystery, and in this order they went to the winning point. The following is the result of the racing :— NEWPORT PILOT BOATS. AggrEgate prizes, £ 55 10s.; distributed among six of the Newport Pilots. 1" Time of Nr. me. Owner. Tons. Arrival. 1.

(!3enrtpl Jittqllijeua;. ♦ DEMISE OF AN AGED CLERGYMAN.—The death is announced of the Rev. Canon Thornton, the oldest clergyman in the diocese of Peterborough. He entered Sydney Sussex College, in the University of Cambridge, in the first year of the present century, and took his B.A degree in lOOt. the year in which Kaye, afterwards Bishop of Lincoln, was senior wrangler, and two years before Sir Frederick Pollock's senior wranglership. His name appears eighth in the list of senior optimes. He was ordained in 1805 by Bishop Spencer Madan, and in the following year was instituted to the rectory of lirock- hull, which he held up to the time of his death. In 1844 he was nominated by Bishop Davys to an honorary I canonry in Peterborough Cathedral. DEATH OF AX EMINENT Q.C.— The death is an- nounced of Mr. Wiiliam Lee, Q C., who was for many years an eminent member of the Chancery bar. He was born in 1786, and in due course became a member of the Hon. Society of the Inner Temple, by whom he was called to the bar. At the time of his death he was one of the benchers of the Inner Temple, and the oldest member of the society. MURDER.—The Liverpool borough coroner has held an inquest on the body of Mary White, the wife of a dairy- man, living in Vauxhall-road. Some weeks ago, a labourer named Stephen Brennan committed an outrage upon her, and he was sent for trial at the assizes. The poor woman since that time had been very ill, and died on Wednesday last. The medical evidence showed that Brennan's conduct had accelerated Mrs. White's death, and the ju»y returned a verdict'of "Wilful murder." FATAL CHIGNON.—The Keiccastle Journal states that a young woman has died in that town from a leprous disease communicated by the chignon she wore, which is supposed to have contained some of the hair known to be supplied to chignon makers from the cemeteries and hospitals of the Kast. MARRIAGE AT WESTMINSTER ABBEY.—One of the gayest and most imposing scenes that the old Abbey has wit- nessed since the coronation of Queen Victoria, took place on Wednesday morning at Westminster, in the celebra- tion of the marriage of the Marquis of Huntly with Amy, elder daughter of Mr. William Cauliffe Brooks. The Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince and Princess of Teck, the Eastern Princes now visiting England, the Earl and Countess Granville, Lord and Lady Aveland, and in- deed the elite of fashion now gathered in the height of the London season were present, lighting up the sober choir with great brilliancy of colour, The Bishop of Oxford performed the ceremony, assisted by the Dean of West- minster and a large body of clergy. The service was, of course, fully choral. The procession of the handsome pair and lovely bevy of bridesmaids through the crowded Abbey was one of the prettiest sights ever seeu. THE TWELFTH OF JULY IN IRELAND. — The much dreaded Twelfth has passed off. quietly. In Enniskillen a great demonstration was held at the Lake Erne Hotel, ten thousand persons being present. The procession marched with flags and 20 bands, playing party tunes. Shots were fired and speeches delivered. No police were present. The lodges marched home in procession, with colours. At Killyman 25,000 persons were present—an immense procession, with flags, and bands playing "Boyne Water." Shots were fired. Many ladies were present, wearing Orange colours. The platforms were decorated with lilies and banners. Mr. Johnstone and others spoke. Demonstrations were also held at Newbliss, Tandragee, and other places. An Orange meeting was held in the Dublin Rotunda, and speeches were made against the Irish Church Bill. In Londonderry there was no public manifestation. It is fortunate and also creditable to the society that they abstained from any display. A corres- pondent of the Express states that 800 armed Roman Catholics met at Moss Glen, the scene of a contest last year, but as there was no opposing party they had no opportunity of creating a disturbance. In the evening they attacked some persons in Derry, and a scuffle ensued in the Diamond, in which one man, a Roman Catholic, received a slight stab. A PRIEST DROWNED.—A Roman Catholic priest has lost his life at Bandoran, Ireland, under peculiarly melan- choly circumstances. The deceased gentleman, the Rev. Mr. Caroslin, parish priest of Clogher, although upwards of 60 years of age, was a most expert swimmer, and while indulging in his favourite pastime he ventured out too far in a rather rough sea. He was observed by persons on the shore to show signs of exhaustion, and the most heroic efforts were made to save him. At one moment his rescue was almost accomplished, but the pitiless breakers swept him from the grasp of his intending preserver. He was tossed about in the surge for some time, and was at last got out by means of ropes, but life was then extinct. ELOPEMENT.—The John Bull says that the daughter of an Irish member of Parliament, with a large fortune in her own right, has succeeded in eloping, after once at- tempting the step unsuccessfully. A lady friend of the heiress, who introduced the loving swain, pockets £10,000 by the the transaction. THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF WALES.—Their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales took part on Tuesday in the ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the new London Orphan Asylum at Watford. A large concourse of spectators assembled, and the illus trious visitors were enthusiastically received. A GOOD HARVEST.—Mr. Mechi is confirmed in his belief that we shall have a good harvest by the great im- provement which has taken place in the appearance of the crops under the bright sunshine of the last ten days. Nodoubt the 4,000,000 acres of wheat crop will be in quantity and quality much below that of last year, and perhaps under average but the 22,500,000 of acres of permanent pasture and the 10,009,000 of acres of root and green crops will be very greatly in excess of 1868. Oats will be good, barley approaching an average, beans and peas superabundant; potatoes also promise well. EARTHQUAKES IN SCOTLAND.—About five o'clock on Wednesday afternoon a smart shock of earthquake was felt in the village of Comrie and neighbourhood. The tremor of the earth was scarcely perceptible, and, as usual, the shock apparently came from the south-west and proceeded to the north-east. Several slight shocks during the night have been felt since Wednesday, and on all occasions the ■shocks were accompanied with a noise reseitbling a rail- way train, or distant thunder. It is a remarkable fact for a series of years shocks of earthquake have been fel, in the month of July, but the same phenomenon occurs fre- quently at other seasons.—Scotsman. MURDER IN A MURDERER'S CELL.—The Australan budget of News contains the statement of a fearful nur- der perpetrated at the Pentridge Stockade. A prisoner named Ritson, under sentence for shooting a man without the slightest provocation, in the public market, was visited by a Mr. Hill, a Wesleyan clergyman, for the purpose of religion. The two were left together in the cell; in a fsw minutes the warder, who remained outside, heard Mr. Hill say" Mercy, man, mercy," but, thinking it part of the service, took no further notice till he heard a slight scuffle inside he then forced open the door, and fouul Mr. Hill lying on the floor with his head smashed in, aid Ritson, with the hinge of his bedstead in his hand, cower- ing terror stricken in the corner of the cell. Ritson bore the character of a quet, submissive prisoner. ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION IN IRELAND.—On Sunday evening as Captain Lambert, of Castle Lambert, ne^r Athenry, county Galway, was close to his residence, be was fired at five times and dangerously wounded. Sever&l of the shots took effect. The supposed assassin, a letter carrier named Barrett, in the General Post Office, London, and son of a. lately evicted tenaat, was arrested in the up train to Dublin and identified by Captain Lambert. He fired from a revolver. It is many years since a similar outrage took place in the county. It is hoped that Cap- tain Lambert will recover. PIGEON SHOOTING.—A return pigeon shooting match between the Lords and Commons took place at Hurling- ham Park on Saturday. There were ten competitors on each side, the Prince of Wales being one of the ten wto shot for the Upper House. The Commons won by one bird. THE ELCHO SHIELD MATCH.—WIMBLEDON, July 14. The Elcho Shield was won by Scotland. Ireland is second, and England is last. THE LAND OF LIBERTY.—The New York Tribune say.: "A gentleman passing through a Massachusetts village the other day had the misfortune to be mistaken for the musical critic of the Tribune, and narrowly escaped lynch- ing. Ihe crowd in front of the tavern cried out, 'That's the damned long-legged fellow who ran down our jubilee. ROBBING A BISHOP.—The Roman Catholic Bishop of Northampton, the Right Rev. W. K. Amhurst, officiated on Wednesday, at the marriage of Mr. Edmond W. D. Gray, son of Sir John Gray, to Miss Caroline Chisolm, of Wellington-grove, at Duke-street, Lincoln's-inn-fields. After the cei'emony, the bishop gave his servant a bag containing some valuable property to place in his carriage. When the bishop came out of the church the bag was missing, it having been taken out of the carriage by tvo lads, who walked away with it unmolested by the polce or the crowd which had assembled at the door of the church. FERRY ACCIDENT.—On Sunday last, Thomas Bald), a young farmer's labourer, ventured in the absence of ihe proper ferryman to ferry a man named Michael Kimy, also a farmer's labourer, and a horse over the river Aire at Rawcliffe, in the parish of Snaith, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, but instead of using the proper horse bat he endeavoured to take his charge over the river in a small passenger boat. Shortly after leaving the slwre, the horse moved to one side of the boat, which was at once upset, and the two men and the animal were plunged iito the stream, in which the tide was flowing fast. The htrse saved its life by swimming on shore, but both the Hen were drowned. SINGULAR DEATH OF A SOLICITOR.—Mr. William ban- ning Needham. solicitor, of the firm of Ludlow tnd Needham, at Birmingham, has just been found dead under peculiar circumstances. The deceased gentleuan, who was rather advanced in years, had been out duing with a friend at Gravelly-hill on Tuesday evening. He left about half-past ten. A short time afterwards he was found lying in a state of unconsciousness at the fo.t of some steps which lead to the railway station. WONDERFUL IF TRUE.—The prizes that were offerel by Mr. Barkas, of Newcastle, to pit lads, in Durham and Northumberland, to induce them to search for fossil re- mains, have been attended by the most unexpectant res.dts. Not only have the lads picked up from the refuse shale heaps large number of fish remains, and some remairs of large reptiles, but, what is really extraordinary, and will astonish palaeontologists, one of the lads has found the lower jaw of a true mammal. The effect of this discovery will be to reduce the comparative ages of all hitherto known mammalia, and carry back the mammalian life of the world for millions of years.—Northern Daily Express. FALL OF A DYE HOUSE.—Wednesday morning the roof of the dye house of Messrs. Crossley and Co., Bridge- street, Paisley, fell in with a sudden crash. There were only six men in the house at the time, one of whom, a man named Blair, aged twenty-one, was killed instan- taneously. Three others were more or less injured. No definite cause has been assigned for the accident. ANOTHER "MUTILATION" CASE.—At the Tiames police-court, on Thursday morning, Sarah Ann Wooiford, aged forty-seven, was charged with assaulting her husband, George Woodford, a fish salesman in Wapping. On Wed- nesday the prisoner and her husband quarrelled, aid the woman attacked the man in a very savage manne' with her hands, and inflicted upon him serious injuries, not to be described. A surgeon who had attended him stated that the man had been severely injured, and required medical treatment and rest. The prisoner, who is the motier of seventeen children, was remanded.
MARKETS. LONDON CORN MARKET.-MoNDAY. We had very heavy supplies of foreign wheat, oats, and flour last week. Exports, 18 qrs. rye, 117 qrs. maize. English wheat, 3,173 qrs. foreign, 58,960 (lrs. This morning's fresh supply was again extremely short, and almost exclusively from Essex. Factors had, therefore, another opportunity to insist on more money, and Is. per qr. was paid but the business done was limited. The immense supply of foreign caused the loss of Friday's ad- vance, and prices fell back to Monday's rates, the brilliant and forcing weather almost making buyers cautious. Country flour, 17,601 sacks foreign, 5,308 sacks 14,562 barrels. There having been a great clearance of stock, prices of Norfolks were rather higher, as well as other country marks. The quantity of foreign just arrived pre- vented an advance. Town rates were tending upwards. Maize, 8,587 qrs. With good supplies this grain was rather in buyers' favour-say, 6d. per qr. British bar- ley, 142 qrs. foreign, 7,075 qrs. Almost nothing was done in British, but all descriptions of foreign fully main- tained former values, though sales were limited. The malt trade was quiet, and without change. WEDNESDAY. There was scarcely any demand for any kind of flour, and Monday's prices are unaltered. Arrivals :—Wheat, British, 200 qrs. ditto, foreign, 5,230 qrs. barley, ditto, 3,600 qrs. oats, ditto, 23,890 qrs.; flour, 1,700 sacks.
"JOURNALISM IN LILLIPUT." THAT wonderful excrescence of journalism, the Western Mail, seems to have an utter contempt for truth. Not content with flagrantly distorting facts and perverting the obvious meaning of an article which appeared in the GUARDIAN last week, it has this morning perpetrated a deliberate Jib. The spasmodic attempts at wit and humour, the 3lephantine playfulness of the writers of the Mail may please a little coterie of peculiar tastes, but we question if even they will not eventually become tired of a very flat and ridiculous performance. In a drivelling article which appears in the curious print in question this morning, the following passage occurs We confess to having devoted yesterday a moment's speculation to the ques- tion whether any reader would have imagined, from the tone of either the Cardiff Times or the Cardiff and Merthyr Guardian, that the inestimable service so frequently referred to by these 'Lilliputian' organs as having been afforded to the struggling Western Mail was sim- ply that they, in their capacity of jobbing printers, hired out to the Western Mail, at an exceedingly remunerative price, the services of their respective printing machines." The reference made to our- selves in the foregoing extract is a paltry mis- statement. The simple fact of the matter is, that we did not profit to the extent of one single penny by lending our machine to the Western Mail.
MURDER IN BUTE-ROAD LAST I NIGHT. « At the Police Court this morning, before W. D. Bushell, Esq., and Alderman Pride, two Italian sea- men, named Gaetano Cairollo and Petro Gastro, were charged with the wilful murder of a pilot's apprentice, belonging to Cardiff, named Thomas Williams. Mr. Ensor appeared for the prosecution. In opening the case he said that the prisoners were two Italian sailors. They were given into custody on the charge of stabbing an Englishman, named Thomas Williams, who had, unfortunately, since died. It ap- peared that the deceased was drinking in a public house in Bute-street. He left about twelve o'clock, and in passing down Bute-road, when near Maria- street, by some means he pushed against one of the prisoners, when he was immediately stabbed in the abdomen so severely that he had since died. He however" ished to bring before the court a statement made by the dying man before the Medical Superintendent of the Hamadryad ship, and though the statement was not made on oath, yet under the circumstances in which the statement was made to Dr. Dixon, it would be admitted as evidence in a Court of Justice. He then called Elijah Penrose, a shoemaker, of Cricliton-street, who said he had come to Cardiff in quest of work. Last night, about 11 o'clock, he was in the Police Station °in Bute-road, and remained there about an hour. He then left the station and went down Bute- road towards the Docks. Some way down the road he saw several people gathered together. He went up to them. Saw both prisoners there. One of them rushed at the deceased and struck him. He thought it was Petro Gastro, but he would not swear to him. The wounded man reeled backwards and fell with his head against the wall. One of the prisoners ran away in the direction of the Docks, and the other not fol- lowing closely, the first one called out "Come on." He did not see them again until they were brought back by the police-constable in custody. The wounded man lay on the pavement, bleeding from wounds in the abdomen. A police-constable came up, and the wounded man was taken to a druggist's shop in Bute- road. Petro Gastro denied that he was connected with the affair at all.. Cairollo said he never ran away, but stood looking on, while some one else ran away. Kate Williams, a young woman living in Charlotte- street, said she came out of the Rothsay Castle, in company with the deceased, about 12 o'clock on Friday night. She remained standing alone at the corner of Church-street, and the deceased turned to go home. She saw three foreigners going towards the Docks. At that time Thomas Williams, the deceased, was standing at the house adjoining the Rothsay Castle, talking to some young men. As they passed him one of the foreigners pushed against him. He shoved them back. She turned to go home, and after pro- ceeding a few steps she turned and saw the three foreigners and the deceased in the road. One of the foreigners took a 'knife, or something, from his belt, and struck the deceased in the abdomen. She -tould not swear to the man, as he immediately ran away as fast as possible. He had a dark shirt on similar to those worn by the prisoners. There was no row or scuffle in the street. The man ran down to- wards the Docks, and the others then struck the de- ceased on the head. Some man, a companion of Thomas Williams, interfered, and afterwards called out, "I think Williams is stabbed." Deceased reeled towards the foot-pavement and fell down. He was bleed- ing profusely. The two other foreigners ran after the first man, who was then out of sight. When cross-examined she said she could not swear to the prisoners, as all of them had dark shirts on. James Sully, a butcher, residing at No. 8, James- street, said he was in company with the deceased last night at the Rothsay Castle public-house, Bute-street. He left about 12 o'clock, and then both of them turned in the direction of the Docks. The two prisoners, i in company with another foreigner, passed them. They were just leaving the Rothsay Castle when one of the prisoners struck the deceased. Gastro struck the deceased first with his fist. Williams turned round and went into the road after them, when Cairollo ran behind him to hit him with his hand at the back of the head. Witness ran after Cairollo, to hit him for hitting Williams, when Cairollo drew his knife on wit- ness. At the same time he saw Gastro draw his knife, with which he stabbed the deceased in the side. Gastro ran off as fast as he could, and called upon Cairollo to follow. He was quite positive that Gastro stabbed the deceased, as he saw the glitter of the blade, but whether it was a dagger or a knife he could not say. [A knife was produced in court, and also an Italian stiletto, which belonged to Gastro.] He ran after the two prisoners as far as the corner of Maria- street, where he lost sight of him. On returning he found Williams lying on the ground, bleeding pro- fusely. He assisted to convey him to Mr. Jones, the chemist, and afterwards he was taken to Mr. Jones, the surgeon, in Bute-road. Gastro said that all the witness had said was false. He was not there. The witness persisted that he was quite confident as to the identity of the prisoners. When Police-constable Pearce apprehended the pri- soners, and was bringing them up Bute-road, he pointed them out as the persons who had attacked the deceased. Sarah Ann Watts said she came out of the Rothsay Castle about 12 o'clock. She had seen the deceased man there. He left a few minutes before witness. When she got outside she saw Thomas Williams standing in the middle of the road with three foreigners. The two prisoners were then in company with a ship- mate. Cairollo drew a knife oa James Sully, but he did not strike him. She did not see the other draw a knife. The person who drew the knite and struck the deceased was the person who ran away, and not Gastro, one of the prisoners. The man who ran away was much like him. When Cairollo draw his knife to stab Sully, the deceased was stabbed; Gastro was standing close by. All of them ran away, and when she saw the deceased bleeding, she screamed out and called police. Not more than five minutes elapsed from the time he left the Rothsay Castle before the deceased was standing by the wall stabbed. Albert Storey, a musician living in. Havelock-street, said he was coming up Bute-road last night about 12 o'clock when passing Rothsay Castle he saw three men push up against the deceased as he was standing on the foot pavement. The deceased said, Who the d—1 are you shoving?" One of the foreigners, not in custody, hit Williams with his fist under the ear, and then ran away. Immediately afterwards Gastro struck the deceased in the abdomen, and he then heard something like a knife fall on the ground. Both prisoners then ran off towards the Dock. The deceased and Gastro had a scuffle before Gastro drew his knife. Police-constable Pearce said he was on duty in Bute- street about twelve o'clock last evening, and on hear- ing cries of "police" he ran to the spot, near the Rothsay Castle, and saw the deceased lying on the ground. He ran after the prisoners, and apprehended them under the archway in Bute- road, about a hundred yards off. He afterwards found a knife where he apprehended the prisoners, and the stiletto was found and given to him by a person named McPherson. William Norman McPherson, a tobacconist of Bute- road, said he saw the two prisoners running down Bute-road. They passed the archway, and then turned round and came up the road on the other side, walking. One of them, while standing under the archway, dropped the dagger, which he afterwards picked up and gave to the policeman. Ann Edwards, a widow, residing at Canton, was next called, and swore that it was Gastro who stabbed the deceased. The remainder of the evidence corrobor- ated the evidence of the other witnesses. Mr. D. E. Jones, surgeon, of Bute-road, said that the deceased was brought to his house about a quarter- past 12 o'clock, He examined him and found that he was in a collapsed state from loss of blood. He found a wound on the right side of the upper part of the ab- domen. It was a punctured wound. He advised him to be carried to the Hospital Ship, and a stretcher was procured, and he had him conveyed there, accompany- ing him and seeing that he was delivered into the charge of the Medical Superintendent. Mr. H. M. Dixon, medical superintendent of the Hamadryad Hospital ship, said the deceased was brought there about ten minntes before one o'clock. He was suffering from a severe stab in the abdomen. The wound was a very deep one, penetrating for a space of more than twelve inches in the cavity of the abdomen. He was in a sinking state, and it was quite apparent that he could not sur- vive it. Witness told him he was dying, and the deceased understood the question, and appeared to believe it. The deceased replied that he hoped he should soon be in heaven. He (deceased) spoke with great difficulty. Witness took down what was on the paper produced. He said I was in Mr. Rogers's public- house in Bute-road. I had been drinking hard for the last three days. Some man struck me with a knife in the bowels. I could not recognise him, I was too drunk. I fell down and do not remember anything afterwards. I do not remember being taken to Mr. Jones's sur- gery. I know you, you are the doctor of the ship. At the publit house where I was there were some foreigners. There was a row about the pilot- boat not winning the race. The Italians could speak English. They said they could build a faster boat. I offered to give them odds on a race. I did not bet any man. I cannot tell why they should strike me." Witness then read the statement over to him, and he put his mark to .it in the presence of two witnesses. He died at half-past six o'clock this morning. He became insensible shortly after making the statement, and remained so until death. The cause of death was internal haemorrhage caused by the wound. The prisoners, who denied the charge and protested their innocence, were then committed for trial at the Assizes, on the charge of wilful murder. The Court was crowded during the inquiry.
LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. SINGULAR ACCIDENT.—A sad accident has happened to one of Mr. Bruce Pryce's grandchildren—Mr. A. C. Bruce's eldest son. The boy, who is not ten years old, was playing about two months ago with his school- fellows at Eton, when he was struck on the right eye by the recoil of the branch of a tree, round which they were playing. Some idea may be gathered of the force of the blow from the fact that a round twig, nearly five- eighths of an inch in length, which was only discovered last Thursday and extracted on the following day, was forced right through the eye-ball, and buried without leaving a trace between the pupil and. the bone. Immediately after the accident the boy ran to his house, where the eye was bathed and poulticed, but there seems to have been not the least suspicion entertained of what had actually happened. He was allowed, after a couple of days, when the tem- porary inflammation had subsided, to return to his work. In fact so little was thought of the case by the medical man who attended him that his father was not even communicated with. A few days later in- flammatory symptoms re-appeared; he was again ordered not to again resume work for a few days. Nothing further occurred until about three weeks ago: a drooping of the eyelid was observed, which was at once brought to the attention of the medical man, who ordered him to a dark room, and there treated him for the attack of inflammation and ophthalmia which rapidly followed. The matter had now assumed a serious aspect; not only was there little hope of saving the right eye, but it was even found that the inflam- mation might extend to the other. The attacks were, however, attributed to the direct effects of the blow, and the existence of any foreign matter in the eye was not suspected. Every care and attention were paid to him by Mr. Hawtrey, his tutor, and by the members of the family; but as it gradually became evident that the case would be protracted over several weeks, if not months, it was decided that as soon as he could with safety be moved he should be taken home to Bath to be nursed. He was there placed under the care of Mr. Freeman, a surgeon of great experience as an oculist, under whose treat- ment he has since remained. In the course of a few days after his arrival, Mr. Freeman observed symptoms which directed him as soon as the inflammation was sufficiently checked, to make a thorough examination of the eye. The examination was made last Thursday, a small dark spot was noticed on the pupil, from which on the following day Mr. Freeman succeeded in ex- tracting the piece of twig we have mentioned. The boy is by the last accounts doing well, the in- flammation is gradually subsiding, he retains sufficient sight in the injured eye to distinguish objects during the few moments for which it is daily opened by the doctors, and the left eye is safe. It is even hoped that a considerable portion of the sight of the right eye may in time be regained that any should remain under the circumstances is little short of a miracle, but it will be long before the sight recovers sufficiently from the shock to enable him to leave the darkened room to which he is confined for the present. PIC-NIC.—On Thursday last the St. John's annual Sunday School pic-nic was held, by the kind permission of Colonel Rous, in the park adjoining his residence, Courtyrala. The weather was all that could be de- sired, and the day was spent in such a manner as is never likely to be forgotten by the large concourse there assembled. At the close of the day several Sunday School hymns were sung, and the Doxology having been sung, the hearty thanks of the company were voted to Colonel Rous, with cheers again and again repeated. CARDIFF CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.—Yesterday, a meeting of directors was held at the Windsor Hotel, Bute Docks Mr. J. Boyle, the President, in the chair. It was resolved to send a memorial to the authorities, praying for the establishment of a new Custom House at the Bute Docks. THE LATE SERIOUS AFFRAY ON BOARD THE LEU- COTHEA.—Four seamen, named King, Clarke, Kane, and Connor, belonging to the Leucothea, appeared at the Police Court yesterday, before R. O. Jones, Esq., and Alderman C. W. David, on the charge of feloniously wounding another seaman belonging to the same vessel, named John Osborn, on the evening of the 8tli of July. Mr. Ensor, who appeared for the prosecution, now called John Harris, a pilot, who said he was in charge of the Leucothea on the evening of the 8th of July, as she was coming up the Channel. He saw there was a quarrel going on among the men, but the wounded man Osborn took no part in it. They afterwards made it up and went into the forecastle to supper. He saw in a few minutes that there was a scuffle among some of them in the forecastle, and soon after King ran out and said he was stabbed. Before then King and Clarke were fighting together with the knives which they had used for Supper in their hands. They were quarrel- ling and fighting about a shirt. At this time he saw Osborn, but he was not taking any part in the affray. There was, however, a general fight with the others. In this fight King pulled out his knife and cut Osborn across the tkroat, and Clarke came up at the same time and stabbed him in the back. Osborn fell down, and Kane then came up and kicked him several times in the abdomen. Connor did not do anything. He was quite sure that the wounded man did not stab anyone. After he was stabbed he was taken aft. He was then bleedingprofusely, butheremained on deck near witness. The captain refused to send for a doctor, neither would he send for the Shipping Master that night. Mr. H. M. Dixon, the medical superintendent of the Hama- dryad Hospital Ship, was next called, and stated that the wounded man Osborn was brought to the hospital on the 9th of July. He examined him, and saw he was suffering from certain injuries. He wa3 in a very ex- hausted state, having evidently lost a very large quan- tity of blood. He was suffering from an incised wound in the throat about two inches in length, and half an inch in depth. There was another cut in continuation of this one, but only skin deep. There was a wound in the left side about an inch long, and one and a half inches deep. The knife produced (an ordinary sailor's knife) would produce just such a wound. There was also a severe cut on the top of the first finger of the left hand. The cut was quite down to the bone. The upper lip on the right side was split open, as if from a blow. His right cheek was also split open from a blow. His right eye was closed also from a blow or a kick. He had also some severe bruises in the abdomen. When he came on board he was in a very dangerous condition, and it was very uncertain whether he would ever recover. He could not say that the man was out of danger now. He was better, but by no means out of danger. All the prisoners denied that they had done anything to Osborn, but they were all committed for trial at the Assizes on the charge of felonious wounding. PARLIAMENT.—In the House of Lords on Thursday night there was no business of importance. Last night petitions from 34 Chambers of Commerce were pre- sented in favour of the Bankruptcy Bill. After a dis- cussion on the acoustic properties of the House, Earl Granville said if the Irish Church Bill came back from the other House and could be printed on Saturday, he would propose that the Commons' amendments to their Lordships' amendments should be considered on 1 Monday. After a protest from the Marquis of Salisbury against so unseeming a haste, Earl Granville agreed to fix Tuesday. In the Commons on Thursday night, after some ques. tions had been replied to, and on the consideration of the Lords' amendments to the Irish Church Bill, Mr. Gladstone stated the intentions of the Government with regard to the amendments. Mr. Disraeli re- marking that there had really been very little, if any, discussion on the details or provisions of the bill in the House of Commons, hoped the House would address itself to the consideration of the amendments of the House of Lords. He took exception to the provisos proposed by Mr. Gladstone, and hoped the House would accept the business-like amend- ments of the Lords. The House then proceeded to consider the amendments, several of which were disagreed with by large majorities. Last night also several of the Lords' amendments to the Irish Church Bill were rejected, and ultimately the motion to appoint a committee to draw up reasons for disagreeing with the Lords' amendments was then agreed to amidst Ministerial cheers. The members nominated as the committee were :—Mr. Gladstone, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Bright, Mr. Card- well, Mr. Bruce, Mr. Chichester Fortescue, the Attor- ney-General, Mr. W. E. Forster, Mr. Ayrton, the Attorney-General for Ireland. Mr. Chichester For tescue subsequently appeared at the bar of the House, and brought up the report of the committee appointed to draw up reasons for disagreeing with the Lords' amendments to the Irish Church Bill. The reasons were then agreed to. The other business having been disposed of, the House adjourned at 1.35 a.m. GLAMORGAN SUMMER ASSIZES.- Baron Channell arrived at Cardiff by the express train from Carmar- then this morning. He was received by the High Sheriff, E. Romilly, Esq., the Deputy Sheriff, R. W. Williams, Esq., the Mayor, and a large number of members of the Corporation. His Lordship entered the Sheriff's carriage and was at once conveyed to his lodgings in Charles-street. The Commission will be opened this evening.
THE MASSACRE IN ABYSSINIA. RECOVERY AND BURIAL OF THE BODIES. A Newport paper says, "We understand that Mr. Walter Powell, M.P., who hasthis weekreturned to this country from Alexandria, brings authentic intelligence which leaves no room any longer to doubt the dreadful fate which befell Mr. T. Powell and his party. It ap- pears that they were attacked by men of the Tekah tribe, and massacred, as has already been described. Soon afterwards some of the Bezan tribe (who were first reported to be the guilty parties) came up with the murderers and compelled them not only to relinquish the booty, but to deliver up the bodies, which were given up to the Swedish missionaries, by whom they were buried. It is therefore expected that Mr. Henry Powell and Mr. Jenkins will have the melancholy satis- faction of bringing the remains home."
CARDIFF POLICE COURT. FRIDAY. (Before R. O. JONES, Esq.) THE LATE ASSAULT BY SHIP'S OFFICERS.—Edward Brown Watts, the captain of the Kendrick Kish, and Charles Friend, the third mate, appeared on a remand charging them with wounding Frederick Schultz, a sea- man on board the vessel. The whole of the evidence was completed on Wednesday, but the case was then adjourned in consequence of the prosecutor having been smuggled" out of the way. He was now in attendance, and the evidence taken on a former occasion was read over, the Bench having expressed their intention of sending the case for trial. Mr. Raby stated that he had the captain of a vessel who could prove where the ship was lying at the time the assault was committed..The captain promised to attend that morning, but on inquiry he found that the captain had not arrived, and he thought it would be necessary to subpoena him. Mr. Jones: You can obtain a Bench warrant before the assizes. At any rate you had better take measures to get him. Mr. Ilaby wished to call the prosecutor to show how he had been taken away on Wednesday. Mr. Jones thought he could not do that. The man was present now, and he was not on Wednesday bound over. Mr. Ingledew asked on what charge the prisoners were to be committed. Mr. Jones: On the charge of assault only. Mr. Ingledew: If that is the decision of the Bench, then perhaps they would allow the case to be settled by a liberal compensation. Mr. Jones That is for the Judge of Assize rather than for me to say. Mr. Ingledew asked if the Bench would bail the captain, and to this they agreed-the captain in JB500, and two sureties in £ 500 each. The sureties were found, and the captain left the court.
