«. TENBY. We hear that the Bank of Wales intends opening a branch"at Tenby. On Monday week the Tenby Artillery Volunteer Corps went out for ball practice, when, as usual, the firing was good, the shots dropping near the target. The Fire Fly, steamer from Bristol, on Friday week brought about 80 passengers, consisting principally of tourists. PUBLIC BALL.A ball will take place at the Gate House Assembly Rooms, on Thursday next, when the following gentlemen will act as stewards ;-CaptaulS Bayley, Oldfield, and Fitzroy, and H.Fletcher, Esq. EXCURSION STEAMERS.—On Saturday week the steamer Royal Princess arrived here from Llanelly with about 300 passengers, and again on Monday, when shehad about 350. On Tuesday the steamer Prince of Wales, from Swansea, brought about 169 passengers. On Tuesday week the Overseers of this distrist were ex- pected to attend at Pembroke to have their accounts audited the half year ending Lady Day last. The Assistant- Overseer for the parish of St Mary In-liberty Tenby. did not attend, nor, we are informed, are his books made up, We believe the auditor directed that an accountant should be employed to make out the accounts, preparatory to a special audit. To such of the public in Tenby as take an interest ifl wwather phenomena, as foreshown by barometic indica- tiona, it will be easy henceforth far them to consult the readings of our barbour barometer on board placed, there by Colonel Austen, on which the barometic curve ø entered daily, at nine a.m., as redueed to sea level, and the temperature of 32 deg, like the Buard of Tradt marking's TRIAE, OF LIFEBOATS.—Two lifeboats, intended to bf stationed respectively at Tenby at Lytham, under went their harbour trials on Monday week, in tbe Regent's Canal Dock, Limehouse. The boats are each thirty-three feet long, and rowing ten oars. The self-righting, self-eject- ing the water, and other qualities desirable in this class of vessels were exhibited in the most satisfactory manner. The boats are the property of the National Lifeboat Institution. SAUNDERSFOOT.—One day last week a sailor was em- ployed on the rigging near the cross-trees of a vessel in Saundersfoot Harbour, when, by some means or other, his foot slipped, and he fell down between the vessel's sido and the harbour wall, striking the back of his head against the edge of the wall, and inflicting a serious scalp wound: his further descent was stopped by tbe wooden fender hanging from the ship's side. It was most for- tunate that he came down on his feet: had he unhappily fell on his bead, the consequenoes would have been in all probability fatal. TENBY POLICE COURT, MONDAY, JULY 6tb.-Betore the Mayor, Dr Dyster, and H. Sanders, Esq.—Elizabeth Protheroe and Elizabeth Rees, were brought up in the custody of Head Constable Harrison, charged with vagrancy, being found at 3 a.m. concealed in an out- house. Reprimanded and discharged.—Same day.—James Harries, labourer, wa-, charged with stealing a pair of trousers from a garden hedge, the property of W. Jenkins, cabman. The prisoner pleaded guilty. Sentenced to 14 days' hard labour. We have pleasure in extracting the following from the Weston-Super-Ma-re Gazette, of the 4th inst., the Captain Rowe referred to being son of the late Mr Thomas Rowe, Principal Officer of H.M. Customs in this town:—The quickest passage on record from England to Hong Kong, has just bpen performed by the British steamer Bahama, commanded by Captain Rowe, brother to Mr John Rowe, formerly a resident of this town. The passage from Holy- head to Hong Kong was performed in 75 days under steam and canvass. ODD-FELLOWSHIP.-On Monday week the half-year'* accounts of the Loyal Ship aud Castle Lodge of Odd Fellows, M,U., were audited, when the result proved highly satisfactory.
