SCHOOL OF INDUSTRY.—ON Tuesday, the 4th instant, the children of this school had, through the kindness of some friends of the institution, the pleasure of spending the day on tro sands at Bread Haven. A waggon had been kindly lent ior the occasion, and arrangements tor the comfort of the children were made by some ladies at the Haven. Soon after the arrival of the children they were supplied with refreshments, after which they spent some hours in pky on the sands, until tea-time, when they were again assembled, and after tea and cake were over, the Rev. JS. F. Woodman spoke to the chil- drea of the purpose and object of their school training, to fit them for their future life, with its varied duties, be they those of faithful service, or of Christian conduct m homes of their own. Many ladies interested in the aca-aol were with the children during a great part of the day, and the mistress ha* very gratefully acknowledged their helpful kindness. On leaving, a piece cf cake was given to each child to take home, and the evening closed a day of much enjoyment. One shadow there was over the brightness of fhe day, and it was the loss of one who wall truly the friend and benefactress of the school. Had personal feeling alone been consulted, the day's recreation would have been postponed, in con- sequenco of the sad event, and many an affectionate I regret mingled with even this happy holiday. HAVERFORDWEST RIFLE ASSOCIATION. WEDNESDAY. The weather to-day ,waa of the same favourable cha- racter as yesterday, and there was every prospect of a continuation ¡¡fit till the close of the meeting. A sharp wind still prevailed, and to this circumstance may be attributed the low scores made by the most experienced competitors. At ten o'clock the firing commenced for THE COUNTY MEMBER'S PRIZE OF £ 25; Open to all Volunteers of the County of Pembroke, and Town and County of Haverfordwest. The ranges were 400 and 500 yards, five shots at each. Private E. H. Dimond, of the Milford corps, and Private John Davies, of the Haverfordwest corps, tied for this prit.e, with a score of 29 marks. The tie was shot off at the longer range, when Mr Dimond made a centre, and Mr Davies midsed the target: the former, therefore, won the £ 25. According to an arrangement made previously to firing the deciding shot, the L25 was divided between them, each receiving L12 10s. Mr Lort Phillips, who has sup- ported the volunteer movement in the most generous manner, was present during the contest, and on being introduced to the winners, warmly congratulated them on their success. There were 46 competitors; fi va bein g from Milford, two from Pembroke, two from Pembroke Dock, and 37 from Haverfordwest: The following are the principal scores :— 400 500 Total Private E. H.

THURSDAY. The last prize in the programmj was shot for to-day by 44 competitors. Col. Peel, who had most efficiently performed the duties of umpire, was, we regret to state, unable to attend in consequence of illness, and his place was very ably supplied by Lieut. Harvey, who was also present throughout the whole of the former contests of the meeting. The only prize that remained to be com- peted for, was THE "LORD LIEUTENANT'S PRIZE OP £10, which was divided into L5 for the first; zC3 for the second; and X2 for the third; and was shot for at 600 ind 550 yards, five rounds at each. Corpcral J. Phillips, Corporal T. Lloyd, and Private G. Morris, tied for the first prize, with a score of 25 marks. In shooting off he tie, Corporal Phillips and Private Morris made a centre, and Corporal Lloyd an outer. The latter, there- fore, became entitled to the third prize of £2, and the two former had again to contest for the first prize. On firing a second shot, both made an outer and a third shot WAS fired with the same result. The fourth shot gave the victory to Private Morris, who made a bull's eye, Corporal Phillips making an outer. The following are the highest scores 500 550 Total Private G.

Private Edward Sinnett made three bull's eyes in succession, and bull's eyes were followed up by four competitors in the same squad. Mr Scourfield in informing the winners that be had given instructions that their respective prizes should be paid to them, stated that he had never witnessed such good shooting.

—. TENBY. THK NINCS steamer yacht, owner — Smith, Esq., of Swansea, arrived here on Tuesday last. WE are GUD to have to chronicle the- return of a friendly fishy tribe to our shore. W» had almost thought we had offended them by some means or other, but to-day we were gladdened by seeing a boat arrive in the harbour, having some on board in the shape of 521 dozen of fine sparkling mackarel. We hope we may consider the avant couriered of thousands. ACCIDENT.-On Tuesday week, an AGED man of the nacie of William Morgan, slipped, when, walking, and fell down iu St. George's Street, nearly opposite the Butcher's Arms, He was carried home, and some time after it was discovered that one of his legs. was broken. We have since learned that he died from the effects of the accident, coupled with his age (75). AN AROHERY MEETING was held on. the ground on Wednesday, the 12th instant. The weather was delight- ful, the shooting good, and the ladies were-well, we think, as heads of families, it were prudent for us to [lay no more about them. The competi ion was tolerably good, and terminated as follows Miss Rial scored 190, including 6 golds;. Miss Phillips, 112, and Mrs Smith, 100. The furmer lady was declared winner of the prize (a handsome inkstand), which was presented to her by the secretary. Other prizes will be shot for during the ensuing woc-FC. CONCERT.—We are happy la inform our readers that Herr Hauptmann, Organistof Tenby, will give a con- cert at .the Gate House Assembly Rooms, on Monday, September 8th. He has engaged the services of Miss Freeth, the pianiste, from LONDON Mis3 Edmunds and IVJISS Harrison, vocalists. The programme, which we shall be enabled to give in our next, is admirably selec- ted, and a feast of good things awaits the visitors who favour him with their patronage. Herr Ilauptmatm will, of course, perform one of his favourite solos; several amateurs will ulso assist in the performance. ON Friday last, the Lyric Opera Company, who have been giving some excellent entertainments at the Gate House H'ltel, GAVE their t' re well night. The. opera was La Somnambula.'followed by a violin couierlo of De B/riot; executed in excellent styl- by Herr Hauptmann, which was er cored. Mr Gregory sang h semi-buffo song, 'You know,' with api) it. & received an encore. Respond- ing to the call, he substituted another, '.Dont be too particular.' Mr Williams, bandmaster, played on the cornet-a-piston, selections from Robert le Diable,' which was also encored. The iarue was The Water- man.' The whole woiked well, and gave great sitis- faction. The entertainment being under the patronage of the Mayor, G. White, Esi., was well attended. We believe we are right in saving t' e house was crammed. ST. MARY'S Cilvitcli first oiject that becomes of interest, to visitors of Tenby, on whichever bide ot the town they approach—by land or sea—is the town and- spire of St. Mary's Church, rising above the chancel to a height of a. hundred and fitty teet. Within we fino a building of large space and grent antiquity, and till lately we also found that oft-repeated coatings of yellow wash had disfigr.r> d the. wads and pillurs, much of the ceiling woodwork old and out of repair, several windows a disgrace to the edifice, and a lot of well-worn higti pews giving the good folk who occupy them the look of so many Jacks in the box when they rise up to take part in in the service. Thanks to the peisisient. eneriry of the Rector, and tiie.iber.iiityot well wishers, much has been done towards putting the chuicii as it should be. The pillars have been 'scraped out' of their yetlow wash, the ceilings repaired, stained, and varnished, the old pews swept away und open seats substituted, three new windows placed instead ot the old deformities, a haud- some new porch built at the north entrance, its floor "mid with Meriton's ilies, several additions made to the new seats,—and ail this to be only part of a more enlarged work of restoration. In aid of the church restoration fund, the Lord Bishop of St. David's, and the Rev. J. H. A. Philipps, of Picton Castle, kigdly consented to preach sermons. Tuesday last was the day appointed for the inauguration of the additions and alterations made in the church. A w eek day was preferred as it admitted of the attendance of many of the neighbouring clergy and members of their congregations, without in any way interfering with the of their oivii parishes. The weather, wet and unpromising ill the early morning, cleared off before the time appointed for she morning service and became everything one could wish for. About half-past ten those intending to form a part in the procession met the Mayor and many of the Corpora- tion in the Town llall, and at eleven o'clock the Mayor in his rohas, the Corporation preceded by the maoe bearers, followed by the clergymen of the town and neighbourhood, and the Bishop, the Ilev. J. H. A. Philipps, and the rector in the rear, all in their canonicals, the bells meanwhile throwing their melody around, chiming right pleasantly. At the new porch the clergy halted and divided in two lines, through which the Bishop pro- ceeded, and while entering the church his Lordship b gan the 24th Pralm, The earth is the Loul's: who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord, or who shall rise up in his holy place? Litt up your heads O ye gates,' &c, tbe dngy taking up the alternate verses. The service was performed by the liecior, the lessons read by the Revs. T. Allen, andG. W. Birkett. The music consisted of an anthem iroin Psalm 76, In Jewry is God known,' .Iid a favourits Te Deum and Jubilate, composed by Herr Hauptman, the organist, of whom we have before had occasion to sp*ak iu-terms of the highest prai.-e. We must thank the choir for their admirable performance on this occasion. The Bishop delivered an eloquent and masterly sermon on John 4 chapter, 24 verse, "God iii a spirit,' &e. The church was well attended and the collec- tion appropriately large. In the evening the Rev. J. H. A. Philipps preached from Isaiah, chapter 56, and the latter part of verse 7, 'Mine house shall be called a house of prayer.' We regret to say that few were present to enjoy an admirable sermon. The collections, morning ttllrl evening amounted to £92 14s, and including a cheque from the Bishop of £ 10, £ IU Horn the Rev. J. H.A. Philipps, of Picton Castle, a like sum from a lady who bad left Tenby, X.5 each irom N. J. Duun, Esq, of St. Florence, and G. Lort Philipps, Esq, with smaller sums of three or four pounds. The total may be named at £ 120. We are glad to see this, and feel assured that tHe same energy and liberality that has accomplished so much will not fail to complete the extended improve- ments within tlitj next two years. Among the clergy present we noticed the Revs J. H. A. Philipps, R. Lewis, Lampeter Velfrey, J. Allen, Castlemartiu, W. Allen, Bosherston, F. Leach, St. Petrox, G. Birkett, 81. Flo- rence, G. N. Smith, Gumfreston, II. Chandler, Narberth, J. Palmer, Cresselly J. Daiton, St. Issells, \Y.D. Phil- lips, Crunwear, Hugh Thomas, Nasb,&c.
TEN BY CORPORATION. A quarterly meeting was held on Monday week. Present—the Mayor, G. White, Esq., Aldermen Wella, Evans and Mason; Councillors Rees, Hughes, Harries, and Phillips. Alderman Wells brought before the Council the case of a boy who had been charged with careless driving during the past week. The magistrates had not been, able to aet ;• an uncertamty existing whether the boy was under or over 13 years of age. The Mayor stated tnat the mortgagees refused to allow any portioa of the purchase money of Capt. Hereford's garden to be applied to the purchase of the plots of land in Hey wood Lane that, the sanction of the Treasury had been received to sell the garden to Capt. Hereford, and land for the railway station at a fixed rent. Alderman Evans called their attention to the lighting of tkatown; he considered it high time to light up the lamps. A discussion ensued regarding outstanding ienta, when- it was resolved'j. that all persons-' owing arrears, net pay. ing within a wsek, be proceededt againili. A letter from Col. Austen, respecting a promenade along the north shore, was read, to the effect that if a company should be formed for tha purpose of making a promenade from the sluice to the end of the north shore, would the corporation give the freehold of that portion i}.f the shore needed in its formation, in return for the' improvements and increased drainage. Mr Mason also proposed that the leakage of the' Feservoirs be repaired, and a filter-placed at the outlet ot She water. Aldermen Weils and Mason spoke of the nuisance oc- casioned by the erection of some of the fair booths, and regarded them as having a demoralising tendency. The Mayor invited the Membens of the Council to trait officially the church, on the occasion of its formal restoration. It was ordered that Mr G. Mathiao's letter on behalf o-f the Tenby and Pembroke Railway Company, for ap- plication to open a gateway in a wall adjoining the old windmill, and give a part of the wreck fields, fur the pur- pose of reaching a roadway into Mr Gonne's field, be taken into consideration at a future meeting of the Council. °

The caso was fully made out against the de- fendant, *nd lie was fined 15s with costs.
