Hume to the Cheltenham Battalion of Volunteers, which has suffered the penalty of inattention and irregularity at drill, and been severely reprimanded in consequence. We should state that Colonel Hume was the first officer. who officially inspected the Haverfordwest Volunteers, of whose proficiency and steadiness he spoke in terms of the highest commendation:—' I should not' said the In- specting Officer, I be doing my duty if I were to tell you that you have gone through your movements in a soldier- like manner, because it is not so. I consider that the first part of your movements were done in a very loose way 1 might almost say in a manner unworthy of your position—indeed, worse I never saw in my life. That, I cannot help thinking-arises from a want, on the part of many of you, of a regular attendance at drill. I have seen your drill and practice returns, and am surprised to find that not more than one-third of the members have been anything like regular in attendance at drill. I may here state that this is the first time 1 have inspected a Gloucestershire Dattalion- and I really expected to see the movements done more steadily. I could see at once the men had not attended their drill regularly,, and that, if they had they had not paid attention to it. Thc officers -and I am pleased to say it-pave done their work well; but it is impossible for them to carry out their object unless you attend to your drill. It js impossible for them to do so. But you must improve; anihow can you do so unless you attend to your drill? The government having taken up the movement, and put their liands in the pockct of the country to, support it, something more wil! be expected of you, and I am bound to report how you have done your work. I have noticed that severad correct iocs, published in the last new book, have not bieu taken notice of; if they had been 1 should have known that the men attended their drill. It is really d most important that these matters should be attended to. I raast also tell you that your file firing was very bad- it was vaHey firmg very nearly. But your volley firing was very good; and the few movements towards the end, were executed much more steadily than those at the commencement, and that convincesmethatifyou attended more regularly to your diillyou would be more effective; It is impossible that either the Adjutant. or the Command- in £ odlcer can do their duty if you do not attend drill, aud, 1 hope, that,by the time I come here again to iuspcct you that I shall find you more steady in your movements, and a well-disciplined regiment. I may tell you that I am a man who speak of things as I find them—1 speak my tain..); and I hope and trust you will receive my re- marks in the spirit which they are intended. 1 wish to lmpi-esa upon you the importance of regular attendance atdrill, so that, when I inspect you another year, I may speak of you in more favourable terms. The officers, throughout the movements, have shown that they have patd a Rreat deal of attention to the drill, and I hope you will follow their example. I tell you that it is painful to me so to speak my mind, but it is my duty to tell you of your shortcomings, and so long as 1 hold the position I do, I shall continue to do so, feeling, as I said before, that it is my duty,'
ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS.
ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Saturday before the Rev, Thomas Watts, Rev. E. F. Wobdman A. B Starbuck, Esq., J. D. Roberts, Esq., and 0. E Davies, Esq. FRAUDULENT ENLISTMENT. John Williamsf WiUUtm Hodge, Jqnle* Adamt, and Lewis Phillips, privates in the Glamorganshire' Light Infantry Militia, were charged with fraudulently enlisting in the Coast Guard Service. The prisoners pleaded guilty to the charge. In reply to a question from the Bench, it was stated that the offence in each case had been committed more than twelvemonths ago. < The Clerk said that the information should have been laid within six months after the commission of the offence; and the prisoner!! were then discharged. James Rindull, a naval coast volunteer, was charged with enlisting in the Glamorganshire Light Infantry Militia. The prisoner pleaded guilty, and the Bench fined him 40s and costs. HOUSE-BREAKING AT CIL.VWEN. Samuel TIaughton and Thomas. Williams, two tramps, were charged with breaking into the lodge at Cilauwen on the 18th instant, and stealing therefrom one silk handker- chief, two neck-ties, and one shawl, the property of the lodge-keeper, Thomas Evans. Phoebe Evans, deposed: I am the wife of Thomas Evans, and live at the lodge at Cilauwen. This day week, between three and four o'cfsck, I lelt the house to fetch water from a field on the other side of the road. There was no one in the house; I locked the door; the window was open. I was away about a quarter of an hour; when I returned, the lodge gate was open. A flower pot had been thrown down to the floor of the room, and the cur- tains were torn. The door was locked as I left it. Two drawers and two' boxes had been opened. A silk hand- kerchief, a shawlr and two cravats were stolen from the boxes. I had seen them in the beginning of the week. The shawl was worth seven shillirsgs, the liandlicichief five shillings, and the cravats sixpence each;—thirteen shillings altogether. The articles produced are the ones I lost. Henry Morgan: I am a labourer, and work on the turnpike road. On tire 18th instant, I was working wear Cilau Gate. I saw the prisoners near the- place. I talked with the prisoner Haughton about three or four o'clock in the afternoon. I was working about ona hundred yards from the Gate all the dw-y. 1 could noSsee the Lodge from the-part of the roawwhere I worked. Haughton asked me if I had seen another man pass. James Hichards: I live at Fishguard. I was at my own residence this night week, when Superintendent Jones came up, and culled out to me. It was between six and seven o'clock. I went up the road with him. About forty yards out of Fishguard we saw the prisoners about five hundred yards before us. I saw them in a field, and I got down off the hedge where I was standing, and went nearer to them.. I saw the prisoner" standing op, and one of them was clearing away the 'trash' in the hedge. I saw Haughton stoop down as if he were putting something on the grass: his back Was- towards me. We went up to them and searched them, bat found nothing. Superintendent Jones moved the I trasli' aside with his stick, and found the articles produced. Superintendent Jones corroborated the last witness' testimony, adding that when be charged the prisoners with stealing the things, they said they knew nothing about them. In answer to the charge the prisoners pleaded Not Guilty. The Bench committed them to take their trial at the next Quarter Sessions.
PlllNCE ARTHUR. His Royal Highness Prince Arthur, attended by Major Elphinstone and Rev. Mr Jolly, arrived at Monmouth from Ross by boat on Monday week, where a carriage was in waiting to convey the Royal party to the noble ruins of Raglan Cashle (the property of his. Royal High- ness) and after a hurried visit his lloyal Highness returned to the Beaufort Arms Hotel, in Monmouth, where dinner was awaiting him, and where he remaiaed for the nipht. On the following morning his Royal Highness viewed the ruins of the once noble Castle of Monmouth, t'nd in which the famous King Henry V. wa» born, as also the church of St. Mary, and the other public buildings. At eleven o'clock he left for Tintern Abbey and Chepstow, at which latter place he passed the night. His Royal Highness was received at Mpnmouth with great public rejoicings-by the inhabitants.

Hotel, where a suite of rooms had been previously ordered for his reception. Crowds of people lined the streets through which tiie carriage passed to,eatch a glimpse of the young Prince, who is now in his 14th year. His Royal Highness left Carmarthen, this morning for' Aberystwith, en route to Dolgelly.
TENBY. On Thursday week.a little boy, the son of Mr Evans, of the Dolphin Inn, fell overboard out of a boat in the harbour. John Rees, boatman, who was standing by the weigh-bridge at the time, ran down to the landing-steps*, jumped into a boat, and pulled to the boy's assistance, who, by the time Rees had arrived, was insensible, and floating on the surface. He was carried home, and after some time recovered. TENBY VOLUNTEER BAND.—We have been informed that it is the intention of the members of the band to give a Vocal and Instrumental Concert, at an early date,. in aid of the funda the corps. Herr Hauptmann has kindly promised his valuable assistance on the occasion, so that an agreeable musical treat may be anticipated and we trust the public will avaihthemselvea of the op- portunity of assisting the corps to defray their somewhat heavy and numerous expenses. I POLICE CouRt!, 20th July, 1863.-Before the Mayor. Dr Dyster, and E. C.

COLLISION AT SKA.—On Saturday week the steamer Samson, of Llanelly, on leaving the harbour, with a party of excursionists on board, ran into the fishing smack Lark, John Davey master, while tying in Tenby Roads, carried away her nfain-boom, and shattered her to the wat&r's edge on the port quarter. Fortunately the acci- dent occurred near the harbour, sO she was easily brought in for the necessary repairs; but had it happened at a distance of four miles, or upwards, we hear that she must have been abandoned. On Sunday week, the 19th Inst, wfcile Head-Con^table Harrison was on duty, he found a man wandering about in an excited state. When spoken to by that officer, he at once discovered that the poor man's mind was deranged. When taken to the station house, on hia person was found a discharge, bearing the name, &c., of Uoodwin,' private, 82nd Regiment of Foot, an out-pensioner of Her Majesty's Royal Hospiral at Chelsea, on the 13th of November, I860, and receiving a pension of 8d. per day 21 years' service; height 5ft. 9in., bair black, eyes blo, age at this time thirty-nine. The poor man will, no doubt, be for- warded to some asylum. A very pleasant ball took place at the Gate House Assembly Rooms on Thursday week, under the steward- ship of Captains bailey, Oldfteld, and Fitzroy, and Mr Fletcher. The rooms were well got up for the occasion, and the arrangements reflected the greatest credit upon tlie management of Mr Gregory,. Amongst theoompany present we noticed Miss and Mr Richards, and the Misses Lloyd, Mr C. and the Misses, Allen, Mr, Mrs, and the Misses Wedgwood, Rev.' .11., Mrs., and Miss Corbett, Miss Thomas, the Misses Pool, Mias Lecbe, Mr and Miss Parsons, Captain and Mrs Mansel, Miss Kynaston, Capt. and Mrs Boissier, M essrs. Wiles, Grove, Lock, Cuthbert, Dashwood, Hawks, Galbraith, Barnes, Hensman, &0. The fishing smack Samuel and Ann, of Brixham,! George Ho$re? master; fben OR t^g ^sh|^g ground in the bay, early on Thursday morning week, saw a yauht in tow of a schooner, and it being nearly a calm, they were still in sight late in the afternoon, when the schooner cut the yacht adrift. Upon seeing this, the Samuel and Ann bore down upon the yaoht, which had carried away her main- mast, and proved to be the property of W Yelverton, jun., Esq., of Whitland Abbey, who, with five other geatlemen were on board. The yacht was bound from Milford to Weston super-Mare, and met with the accident on Wed- nesday night off tho Skerweathera.' She was towed in to Saundersfoot Harbour. The Lyric Opera Company, on Monday evening week, gave the first of a series of Operas, in the Gate House Assembly Rooms. The one selected for that night was Maritana,' which was played to a full and most res- pectable audience. The performances generally gave satisfaction, while the singing of Miss Thirlwall and Mr Terrott was particularly adniired. In the Operetta of the Quaker,' which followed, Mr Grantham's singing, While the Lads of the Village,' and Miss Louisa Travel's Ever of Thee," were also loudly applauded. On Tuesday week, the Opera of the Bohemian Girl' was given, but owing to the heavy rain, the attendance was but thin. On Wednesday night the house was again filled to hear the Opera of I Il Trovatore,' and on both occasions, we believe that we may safely say that every one was pleased. ARRIVALS.-Dawe.

Tenby headed the military in the first innings by fourteen runs; and, at the commencement of their second innings, the Garrison had but seventy-six to win. Owing to the admirable bowling of Mr Tuck, who bowled seventeen overs, losing but eight rttns, and taking eight wickets, the Garrison, were all removed for tbirty- one ruaa, thereby losing by forty-four; The double fissures on the Tenby side were made by Mr Fuck,' eleven and twenty-nine; Mr Winterscale nineteen; Mr Smythe fourteen;, and Mr Lewes, fourteen. On the Garrison side Mr Grove made nine; Mr Parnell eighteen, in the first innings, and Mr Romsey fourteen in thfe second. The ground was in good order, and honoured by the presence of many ladies. EXCURSIONS.— On Friday, Saturday, and Monday week and Wednesday last,, excursion packets arrived at Tenby with large parties from Swansea, Llanelly, and Neath. The Henry Soutban, of Swansea, after having discharged her egctirsionists at Tenby, took a large party of the- people of the town on board for a cruise along the picturesque shOtes of Stack pole, Saint Gowan's, &c., to Linney Head. The weather satisfied the most fastidious tourist, and the magmfic int cliffs and rocks, formed a succession of beautiful views; the bird» on and around the Staek Rocks were-very numerous, helping to add life to the scene. The visitors having satisfied their curiosity the Henry Southan steamed for Tcrmy,-sbifted her pas- sengers, and returned-' for Swansea. It is amusement to see with what zest the excursionists manage to pass away the hours allotted to them for pleasure; When they first come ashore, they go up town from tho harbour in a sort of mobbish" procession, and for a moment apprehensions are felt thatajie very excellent lungs of Tehby will suffer from excess of nitrogen; but our fears are groundless, for on reaching the centre they break up into small parties, some to support the inner man, some 'to wash' as they term it, I in the sea,' some to stroll through the old church, and others to ride to spots of interest in the neighbourhood. And what a time the 'jarvies' have of it! everything vehicular is besieged in the most earnest manner, and seised upon with the greatest avidity—pos- sible and impossible numbers endeavour to get a seat, or at all events the fraction of one; and till the time of leaving, the carriages seem to have become the victims of some uncontrollable excitement, filled with mirth- provoking faces; they dash aiong hither and thither 1 with life o'erSowing,' one lot flowing out another rolls in, and for the day at least it is familiarly shown that in carriages 'Nature abhors a vacuum.' But all things must come to an end. The packets' whistles sound, and the flow of pleasure-seekers is turned to their respective boats; mostly without mIlch nø-ise the embarkation is effected, and with the exception of a few who find them- selves to be I left behind they are afloat, pressing onward to their own homes, cheerful from the result of the day's relaxation. How they will e¡:joy themselves when the railway is opened permanently for traffic we can well imagine: their excursiwis into the country )vU! be more frequent, more tehgthy, and an item to the good of the shareholders will bd thus run up—perhaps greater than has been expected. Meanwhile, this 'running to and fro on the earth is- productive of much good by It, hot only have we been diaabflsed of efroneous ideas we had respecting 'foreigners;' but als6"of the peonie of other parts of our own inland. We have heard, and believe it» that at the, beginning of this present century, the most noxious antipathy existed between the inhabitants of our own and n neighbouring town, and that the Slightest provocation would cause a scene nearly egdal to the old Irish faction fights—' 0 iempord, o marts 6hanged cer- tainly, and for the better. May the watchword be still, 'Onward!' ANOTHER CASK OF AOCIDBNTAL DROWNING.—An in" quest was held on Saturday evening Idst at the Traveller'* Rest, Swansea, before J.Gaskoin, Esq., doputy-coroner, on the body of Thomas Evans, aged 24, a native of Tenby' but who for some time past had been in the service of Mr James G. Hall, surgeon, &e. The evidence given Will fully explain the cause of tli0 accident.—•Mr' Silvanus Davies, of No. 4, Bethesda Row, frtotman'in tho service of Sir Charles McLean, sworn :J came down on the sands last evening in company with the deceased for the purpose of bathing a mare Which belonged to Mr Hall, surgeon.
