During the late stormy weather and heavy gales from the south and south-west, an unprecedented number of vessels of all sizes, including ono large steamer, too): she) ter in the Fishguard Roads. On Sunday night week mere than fifty were counted, several of them having taken advantage of the more complete security afforded by the Harbour and new Pier, where they remained safe in the event of the wind chopping round to the north or north- east, when the vessels anchored in the roads would have been exposed to some danger.
'^CARMARTHENSHIRE. MELANCHOLY AND DISTRESSING SUICIDE AT CARMARTHEN. On NVedneaday morning, about six o'clock, Mr Thomas Parry, solicitor, of this town, was discovered lying dead in the parlour of his residence in Spilman-streot. The body for the most part, lay in the parlour, the feet Testing on the mat at the entrance to the room, and near them on the floor was found a pistol, the weapon sup- posed to have been used. An alarm was immediately raised, and Mr Hughes, surgeon, was quickly in atten- dance, when he pronounced life to have been extinct for some time. On cximining the bodf it appeared as if the muzzle of the pistol had been placed to the neck whilst the deceased was standing erect against the door-post of the parlour for piooes of bone, some flesh, and blood Were adhering to the door-post, and also the marks of shots were there as well as on the door. During the day rumours of a very painful nature were circulated, but it would seem without the slightest foundation. They seemed, however, to excite a good deal of interest, of a painful nature, in the inquiry, which took place at the Shire Hall on Tuesday evening, before John Hughes, Esq., coroner. The Jury, after hearing the testimony of several witnesses, returned the following verdict:—' We find that Mr Parry committed suicide whilst in a state of temporary insanity aud we also find, that there is not the slightest suspicion attaching to Mr Richard Parry or any other inmate of the house.'
"^GLAMORGANSHIRE. BARBAROUS MURDER IN GLAMORGANSHIRE. CARDIFF, 11th INST.-Circumstances have come to light which show that an atrocious and cold-blooded murder has been committed in one of the mining districts in the Rhondda Valley, intersected by the TaffVale Railway. On Snnday. the 2nd inst., a young woman, named Jane Lewis, aged 23, a servant at Tyntily, parish of Ystrady- fodwy, left her master's house -about six o'clock in the evening, for tae purpose of going to chapel. As she had not returned at a late hour the inmates of the house became uneasy, and proceeded to make a search for the missing woman. They had not proceeded far from the house, when they were horror-stricken by seeing the body of the young woman lying across a footpath in an adjoining wood, with her throat cut from ear to ear. A razor, covered with blood, was found near the body, and it was at first conjectured that the unfortunate woman had committed suicide. It was, subsequently, however, ascertained that the razor was the property of a fellow- servant, named Thomas Edmonds, and he was appre- hended on the charge of murder. A coroner's inquest Was opened on the 4th inst., at the Star Inn, Tyntily, and, after a preliminary inquiry, was adjourned till this horning. might naturally be Expected, the event gave rise to m^ner of reports and on the meeting of the jury this riming the utmost anxiety was manifested by the mining Population in the proceedings. It appeared from the evidence of Mr Thomas Williams a"d his wife (the master and mistress of deceased) that left the house about half-past five in the evening of Jue fatal day with the intention of going to chapel, and "'at the prisoner left the house about the same time for a similar purpose. The master of the house had been but during the Aernoon, and on his return about eight ? clock he told his wife that he had been to chapel but not seen the deceased present. Soon after eight the Prisoner returned home, and about ten o'clock the family ^ent to bed. Before this, however, a young man, named -Inomas Williams, the reputed sweetheart of deceased, c&Iled at the house and asked for her. He was told that s«e had gone to chapel and had not then returned. He j^marked that he had been to chapel, but had not seen ?er there, and in a jocular manner said, as he left the g°«se, that he supposed she had gone away with another "^eetheart. About eleven o'clock, the mistress finding tie servant had not returned, called up her husband, and sked him to go out aud look for her. He rose, and aued the prisoner to accompany him. They procured a .?°tern, and first proceeded to search the outhouses, and «en went down a road leading through a wood in ths i^ection of the chapel. Just as they entered the wood a ey discovered the body of the unfortunate woman lying the road, with her throat cut in the most fearful j.a1ner, and her clothes saturated with blood. At a little ..st»nce from the body they found a razor covered with ^°°d, her bonnet, and the brooch of her shawl. She then quite dead and cold. The master proved that j, e razor and case were similar to that which belonged to the Prisoner, and it was subsequently ascertained that c 6 prisoner's razor was not in the house.

1! DELUSION OF THE CAPTAIN OF A 4 1 MERCHANT VESSEL. Wore6?j8thened inquiry took place on the 11th inst j} -k°cal Marine Board, at their offices, Prince's- in reference to a charge brought against w nr^ ^at^a8> ^te master of the barque Uak, th Port^ t0 ^essrs" Beynori and Co., insurance brokers, he "^e charge against Captain Mathias was, »t ^Uli' an intended voyage from that port to Caldera, J JUne °Uth America, which commenced about the 1st Wte Built 'when the vessel arrived off Cape Horn, C '»nt a aroes act of misconduct, without any a PrQc6e>CauBe or reason, neglecting or omitting further k nai): 0,1 t'he said voyage, and the ship or Teasel did ka(& to Newport. The members of the li4 ^er«—Mr R. P. King (chairman), Mr M. xjtuu, ,r E- T. Luoas, and Mr R. Rowe, Mr H. ^*th *8**rtant t0 board, was likewise present. °*rt, solicitor, of Newport, was in attendance on behalf of the owners of the Osk; and the defendant was likewise present, but withont any legal adviser, and though the investigation lasted several hours, his de- meanour was perfectly cool and collected. Mr Cathcart having stated the case on behalf of the owners, David Evans, the hte chief mate of the Usk, was called and examined at some length. He deposed to the circumstances which took place during the voyage, and stated that the ccurse of the vessel was altered by the sapuin's orders, while benrihg up tor the Falkland Islands. In regard to the special charge under conside- ration, the witness said: In the course of two or three days I found that the vessel was going too far eastward, and asked the captain where he intended to take the ship. He said that he meant to take her back to Newport docks. I asked him his reason, and he told me that he had ocular demonstration fr»n> God not. to proseed that he should lose the cargv, and all hands would lose their lives, if they proceeded, I said that I did 1101. helieve it; and then asked him, if he really was goin^ to take the ship home, to do so honourably. I asked him to put into Monte Video, and thence to write home to the.owner either to give myself the command of the ship, or seed out another master, as he would not go the voyage as by so doing the owner would gladly pay his v[>assi)ge one in preference to having his ship return to Newport. He told me that Gcd told him to stop no- where but on the plaios, but proceed back to Newport and deliver the ship to the man of the n-tn of whom he got her; and ifhe deviated from that God would strike him with instant death. I begged and prayed to him to put into port. I bId him to reflect upon the less that would be occasioned to his owner, and the disgrace to himself and his family. He unsvertd me by Scriptural quotations, and said when David committed a sin God sacrificed the people to atone for the sin and, if it ruined the owner, God's purpose must be carried out. The Mate, at the close of his evidence, was cross- examined by Captain Mathias, but to invalidate his testimony was elicited. Mr Benyon. of Newport, owner ofYhe vessel, stated that Captain Matr.ias was the master of the Usk for the last three years. lie had no authority to return without completing the voyage from Swansea to Caldera. The captain assigned the same reasons for his return as had been stated by the mate Evans. The conduct of tbe cap- tain had caused the owners considerable loss. This being all the evidence adduced, Captain Mathius was c.all<d upon for his defence. He entered into a lengthened statement relative to the posi- tion of the vessel when he resolved to return to Newport, and detailed minutely the particulars of the latitude and longitude, as welt as the varying state of the iYcatha. He then snid I have never seen my uLiss so low before as it was then in going round Cape Horn, either goirr out or coming home. After breakfast I am accustomed, having been a professor of religion for seventeen years. to read a chapter in the Bible to myself in the cabin, and perform my service to my Creator. After that had trans- pired one morning I fc-lt a pressure upon my mind such as I had not felt before in all my life, First I began to ask myself I What does this mean?' as I generally felt light and comfortable in all circumstances of life, and there have been no circumstances that have peculiarly happened to me during my life. I have been thirty-two years at sea. I began to inquire to myself what it all meant, and said that I would go and IlBkc a point of prayer of it, and [ found a still small voice speak to me within me, telling me to return t ) Newport with the ship. But I strove within myself, and in my own soul firmly wrestled against it. The more I strove, the more it resisted me and I found the power to be so strong as to be irresistible. I remained in a state of great excite- ment, and no one or, board the ship could help aecin7 my emotion. No one knew, indeed, what concerned me and if the truth be spoken by every person on board the ship, the power munt have been felt. I remained till the afternoon and then began to consider what it meant, and what it all was; for the still small voice spoke audibly and clearly within me, expecting that I would give up my purpose, or He would break me without remedy. Visions 1 have not seen nothing no bodily shape has appeared to me. Only my own feelingil have I experi- enced, such as everv Christian man would feel. With regard to returning home I said within myself, Well, I should like to have a sign to know for certain that I may not be deceived in my heart, and deceive my own self in the presence of my Creator.' That voice spoke to me again, and told me that the glass should rise. It said, 'I will take my hand off you, and the glass shall rise immediately if you are obedient to the command given you.' I implored the Divine compassion to "))ow me to remain till the Sunday morning at daylight as the storm was terrific. I thought that the vessel would be safer in the trough of the sea than running before such a storm. I could not sleep nor rest. I have no doubt that the mate and the man in the cabin must have seen my countenance, and have known that there was some- thing in the expression of my countenance that was never seen before, and that could change my will, before so determined to accomplish that voyage, that I had on two occasions commenced. I will leave you to judge what it must be to change the will of a man in such circumstances. I suffered for eight days. On the eight day I felt more easy, and I turned the ship, and no other person had anything to do with the changing of the ship. The mate never dared to take the responsi- bility faoni me, and no one has taken charge of the ship and from that moment I gave the command to square yards and change her head every one of the men has obeyed my orders, and we had a favourable wind. I detected the haad of Providence in it, and when we arrived off Lundy Island, I said that the ship would be in port that night. Everything came as I foretold, and the officers of the ship have seen things in that ship that they cannot account for. I can see and account for them. The will of the Lord has b.en accomplished. But do not think I have seen any form, or visions, or bodily shape of any kind. I have known nothing but the Christian feeling, that still small voice, which spoke to me audibly. Mhe captain declined calling any witnesses, saying that he stood entirely by his own responsibility; and, whatever the law inflicted, he was prepared to suffer. Mr Brittan, on behalf of the board, announced their decision as follows: 'That this board do report to the Board ot Trade as follows That Captain Henry Mathias, late master of the barque Usk, of Newport, on a voyage of that vessel from Newport to Caldera, which voyage commenced on or about the 1st day of June last, did when the said vessel had arrived off or near Cape Horn. whilst under a mental delusion, and without any proper or suffcient causo or reason, instead of proceeding on the said voyage but the said vessel had arrived off or near Cape Horn, whilst under a mental delusion, and without any proper or sufficient cause or season, instead of pro- ceeding on the said voyage, put the said vessel back, and returned with her to newport aforesaid and that this board considers Captain Mathias to be still labouring under such delusion, and incompetent to Uke charge or act as mas'er of nny ship or vessel, and this hoard doth thereforej cancel the certificate of the said Captain Mathias.' Mr Brittan then directed the captain to send his certi- ficate to the offices of the board, and the proceedings ter- minated.
FOREIGN INTELLIGENOE. THE AMEHICAN WARFARR; ALAKMINO|—•'1 Dear me, howshockin!' said Mrs Partington, throwing down her newspaper, 'as if Armstrong guns were not enough they have positively got gorillas (guerillas) to fight for them- the savages!' 'Ah,' satd young Ike, 'and ISO t it funny that those Yankee chaps, who used tp boast o. licking all creation, can't even lick themselves?' Mrs P. gave him a severe look, and told him not to talk on subjects above his reprehension. An American editor who has been married about a year, speaking of the babies, says The delight of the days, the torment of the nights—elegant in lnll dress, but horrible in dishabille-beautiful on the smile, but mad- dening on the yell-exquisitel in the nursery, but aw ally out of place in the parlour or railway carriage— the well-springs of delight, and the recipients of un- limited spankings—the glory of 'pa,' the happiness of 'ma,'—who wouldn't have 'em?' A FPTT IN ANGLING.—The other day Mr J. Whit- field, gamekeeper, Hexham, killed in the Tyne two splendid salmon, one 16 lb. and the othvr 12 lb-the firs! in 22, an.l and the second in 15 minutes. REMARKABLE CASE OF RECOVERY OF SPEECH.—Many of our readers must have knwn the late Mrs Newman the landlady of the Now Inn, at Oreston; and most of those who frequented the house must have seen Mrs Newman's sister, Mary Dean. who lived with her for a period of nearly 40 years. During the whole of her long life—about 70 years—Mary Dean has been, quite dumb, and during the greater part of it she has been quite deaf. Last Saturday week Mrs Newman, who retired from the inn some time ago, was seized with paralysis and after lingering until Wednesday she died. It was on Wednesday that the remarkabb circumstances we arc about to relate occurred While Mrs Newman was evidently sinking, her sister stood near the bed in:1 state of extreme distress, rinme of the fiiends nf Luth, who where in the room, made signs to Mary Dean to leave the room, and fetch some article that was required for the dying woman's use. As she did not appear to observe these gestures, they were repeated, and then being greatly agitated, she suddenly exclaimed, Don't bother me!' The achievement appeared to astonish herself as much as the other persons who heard her; and it is stated that she has spoken several tiroes since. This is one of many cases in which persons under great ex- citement have either acquired or recovered the use of faculties which had been considered to be absent or decayed. Western Daily Mercury. THE SEWING SCHOOLS IN LANCASHIRE.—At the first view of one of the schools at work, the mind is confoun- ded by the thonghtjthat- young persona of a class so re- spec!ab!e, bearing for the most part in their countenances and manners ail the traces of a life lomc accustomed to cowfortand plenty—in a large proportion of initances the still more striking marki of education and moral re- finement-should be brought in multitudes to such a con- dition, that between them and the cold depths of abso- lute starvation to death t' ere is nothing but the thin film of parish relief, or of this charitable aid fron their neighbours.

As, we write these words in quiet among the beautiful hills of the North, full many a sad pale face returns to view as we remember the sewing flchods of Manchester, Blackburn, and other places, and fills the mind with abhorrence for that accursed war, which now in the name of philanthropy inflicts this woeful change of circumstances upon the lasses of L'm- cashire. In each room a few words of assurance thnt all England was thinking of them, and would assist their patience and industry with hearty sympathy, was met hy a general response of unaffected kindness and when, in discharge of our various commissions, a donation to their fund was offered from the young ladies of a distant ■school in Kent, or from those of a London congregation, as a present from their sisters in the South, the acknow- ledgment was one of thanks, wet eyes, and clapping of hands, which might have moved a stone to tears. — The Christian World. CONFEDERATE CRUKLTIM.—A dispatch from Louis- ville states that At Cumberland Ford the C jnfederate* recently hung Captain King, of Lincoln county, Ken- tucky, formerly of the Third Kentucky Regiment, his two sotis, mere youths, and 12 other Unionists. The cause of the tragedy and the particulars of the execution are given by the Palmyra (Missouri) Courier:—1 When the rebels entered Palmyra an old resident of the place, Andrew AUsman by name, mysteriously disappeared. and it was supposed he was murdered. When General M'Neil returned to Palmyra, after that event, and ascer- tained the circumstances under which Allsman had been abducted, he caused to be issued a notice that if the missing man was not returned within 10 days he would retaliate upon the rebel prisoners in his hands. The 10 d'lys elapsed &nd no tidings came of the man. The tenth day expired with last Friday. On tbat day 10 rube] prisoners, already in custody, were selected to pay, with their lives, the penalty demanded. The names of the men so selected are as follows :—WiH!s Baker, Thomas Humston, Morgan Bix't-r, and John Y. M'Pheeters, Lewis county; Herbert Hutson, John M. Wade, and Marion Lair, Ralls county Captain Thomas A. Sidner, Monroe county Eleazer Lake, Scotland county Hiram Smith, Knox county. These parties were informed on Friday evening that, unless Mr Allsman was returned to his family by one o'clock on the fallowing diy, they would all be shot at that hour. Most of them received the announcement with composure or indifference. The Rev. James S. Green, of this city, remained with them during that night as their spiritual adviser, endeavouring to prepare them for their sudden entrance into the pre- sence of their Maker. A little after 12 o'clock at noon the next day three government waggons drove to the gaol. One contained four, and each of the others three rough beard coffins. The condemned men were conducted from the prison, and seated in the waggons—one upon each coffin. A sufficient guard of soldiers accompanicd them, and the cavalcade started for the fatal grounds. Proceeding east to Main-street, the eortege turned and moved slowly southward as far as Malone's livery stable, Thence, turning east, it entered the Hannibal-road, pur- suing it to the residence of Colonel James Culbertson. There throwing down the fencef, they turned north- ward, entering the Fair Grounds (half-a-mile east of the town) on the west side, and, driving within the circular amphi-theatrical ring, paused for the final consummation of the scene. The ten coffins were removed from the waggons and placed in a row, six or eight feet apart, forming a line north and south about 15 paces east of the central pagoda or music stand in the centre of the ring. Each coffin was placed upon the ground, with its foot wfcst and head east. Thirty soldiers of the 2:1 M.S.M. were drawn up in single line, extending north and south, facing the row of boffins. This line of executioners ran immediately at the east base of the pagoda, leaving a space between them and the coffins of 12 or 13 paces. Reserves were drawn up in line upon either flank of these executioners. The arrangements completed, the doomed men knelt upon the grass between their coffins and the soldiers, while the Rev. R. M. Rhoades offered up a prayer. At the conclusion of this each prisoner took his seat upon the foot of his coffin, facing the muskets which in a few minutes were to launch them into eternity. They were nearly all firm and undaunted. Two or three only showed signs of trepidation. The most noted of the ten was Captain Thomas A. Sidner, of Monroe county. He was now elegantly attired in a suit of black broadcloth, with a white vest. A luxuriant growth of beautiful hair rolled down upon his shoulders. There was nothing especially worthy of note in the ap- pearance of the others. One of them, Willia Baker, of Lewis county, was proved to be the man who last ytrar shot and killed Mr Ezekiel Pratte, his Union neighbour, near Williamstown, in that coutity. All the others were rebels of lesser note. A few minutes after one o'clock Colonel S:rachan, prorost marshal general, and the Rev. Mr Rhoades shook hands with the prisoners. Two of them then accepted bandages; all the others refused. One hundred spectators had gathered around the amphi- theatre to witness the impressive scene. The stillness of death prevaded the place. The officer in command now stepped forward and gave the word of commaRd- I Ready Aim Fire The discharges, however, were not made simultaneously, probably through want of a perfect previous understanding of the orders and of the time at which to fire. Two of the rebels fell backwards upon their coffins and died instantly. Captain Sidner sprang forward, and fell with hia head towards the soldiers, bis face upwards, his hands clasped upon his breast, and the left leg drawn half-way up. He did not move again, but died immediately. He had requested the soldiers to aim at his heart, and they obeyed but too implicitly. The other seven were not killed outright; so the reserves were called in, who dispatched them with their revolvers. Their lifeless remains were then placed upon their coffins and died instantly. Captain Sidner sprang forward, and fell with hia head towards the soldiers, bis face upwards, his hands clasped upon his breast, and the left leg drawn half-way up. He did not move again, but died ^immediately. He had requested the soldiers t6 aim at his heart, and they obeyed but too implicitly. The other seven were not killed outright; so the reserves were called in, who dispatched them with their revolvers. Their lifeless remains were then placed in the eoffina, the lids, upon 'which the name of each man was wrftten, were screwed on, and the direful pro- cession returned to town by the sam* route that it pur- sued in going. Friends claimed and took seven of the corpses. Three were buried by the military in the I publio cemetery, the tragedy was over.' WALKING MATCH BETWEEN MILES AND HATLEV.— The contest between William Hatley, of Blackfrihrs, and James Miles, of Brixton, the champion, for a stake of £ o0, was derided on Monday afternoon, at JJr Bawm's, Hackney Wielt, The distance to lie traversed was two miles, the champion allowing Hatlev a start of one hun- dred yards. Shortly after four o'clock the competitors appeared on the ground, and a good deal of betting took place at seven to four on Hatley. On the signal being given they started at a rattling pace, Miles in the first lap gaining something like ten yards. lie, however, never caught His opponent, who won with ease in fifteen minutes twenty-five seconds. F. Svmes was referee. MR AND MNS WINDHAM.—The London correspon- dent, of the Belfast News-Letter says: iN[r and Mrs Windham are again about to come before the public in a new character. Mr Windham has filed a petition in the usual way in Sir Cresswell Cresswell's court for the dissolution of his marriage — the co-respondent being an oprri s'.ng'>r. The counsel retained for Mr Windham '"ri: Mr Mucaui >y, M.P., and Mr Kirslake, Q C. The latter was one of Mr Windham's counsel in the memo- rable inquiry to ascertain his sanity. Owing to the state of the cause list in the Divorce Court theWindham petition cannot be heard before Trinity Term. In the interval, the public are promised some curious revelations where the parties are not quite so well known as Mr W. F. Windham and the fair Agnes Willouahby. What- ever he the result of the trial (to which Mrs Windham, in .dl probability, will offer no opposition), she is per. fectly secure in the possession of her handsome annuity, which is charged on the Fclbrigg Hall Estates, which cannot he revoked even by the dissolution of her ill- as:3;¡rte,¡ marriage. DISCOVERY OF A FORKST OF XvnlEG THEEs.- Illtel- ligence has been received by the Dutch Government that Dr. Burnstein, while undertaking a scientific, expedition for account of the Colonial Government of Netherlands, India, to the Moluca Islands and New Guinea, has made a discovery in the Inlands of Batjan, which has led to important results, and cannot fail to prove of the greatest interest to an grocers and merchants in the spice trade. In his ascent, to the chain of mountains known by the name of the Sabellah range-which, it appears, has never been hitherto visited, or at least scirntiifially examined l<y any other Europeans previously—the learned doctor discovered, at ari eievaueu ui from 3,G..O to 3,8 0 feet above the level of the sea, a very extensive forest of liut- meg trees, laden with fruit of unusual size and quality— in fact, far superior to any hitherto seen in the European markets. In consequence of the favourable nature of Dr. liurnsfein's official communication, reporting that this nutmeg-tree forest extended over a iarge tract of country, orders have been sent out from Holland to the Governor- General to obtain a few piuuls of this produce as a sample, and seitd it to Holland, where its value will ba practically tested by the price it fetches in the usual spice sales of the Netherlands Trading Company.— The Grocer. ARCHITECT AND BUILDER.—There is a story on record of all architect insisting on the difference between a builder and an architect, in the case of the late Mr Alexander, the architect of various buildings in the county of Kent. He was undergoing a cross-examination in a special jury case at Maidstone, by Serjeant (niter- wards Baron) Garrow, who wished to detract from the weight of his testimony; and who, after asking his name, proceeded thus :1 011 area builder, I believe?'—'No, ST, I am not a builder, lam an tireiiitect. Ob, wed! architect or builder, builder or architect; they are much the same, I suppose?'—'I beg your pardon, hir, I cannot admit that-I consider them to be totally different.'— Oil. indeed! Perhaps you will state wherein the great Ali prepiii-s the plans, conceives the de«istns draw# out the s; »■< iiieanons — ill "hort supplies the mind is iiiei-t-ly the bricklayer or the carpenter; the builder is in fact the machine; the architect the power that puts the machine together ana sets it goinjr.'—'Oh, very well, Mr Architect -that will do! And now, after your very ingenious distinction without a difference [foolish barrister] pet haps you could inform the court who was the architect ot the Tower of Babel?' The reply wa* as smart as it was prompt: I There was no architect sir; and hence the confusion.' GREECE.
