ST. DTYTD^S! MURDER AT SEA.—Intelligence has been received of the melancholy death of a young man, John Williams, a Ifttive of Abereithy, near St. David's. He was the son Mr Levi Williams, and second officer of the ship, fidoaond, of Liverpool, being on a voyage from Sunder- wnd to Vera Cruz. It appears that on the night of the 29th of April last, Williams directed a coloured seaman, one of the crew, named Edward Lewis, to do some work, out the man showing a disinclination to obey was struck Williams in the face. Upon this, the man made use Of some threatening language, and at once, pulling out Ws knife, stabbed him in the abdomen and breast, when the poor fellow fell upon the deck insensible. A vessel »as passing near the Edmond at the time, from which the assistance of a surgeon was obtained, but his skill "as of no avail, as Williams died in a short time. On the arrival of the vessel at Vera Cruz the murderer, and Mother of the crew implicated in the dreadful affair, "ere taken before the authorities, who, after hearing the evidence, sent the culprit and his accomplice to England for trial.
BIS^elxy: FOOLISH BRAVADO.—On the 11th instant, there, were Several men mowing corn in a field belonging to Mr Alexander Waters, of Thomas Chapel, and one of the Then came on a very large adder. He immediately put the heel of his scythe stick on the venomous creature to Prevent it escaping until they could kill it. Among the Dumber of men there was a wiseacre (who, it is supposed, is a kind of Latter-Day Saint), who said that he could take the reptile up with his hand fearless of any harm. Accordingly be aimed to catch the infuriated creature by the tail, and in the attempt he was himself caught by the finder, and he had some difficulty to shake the crea- ture off. The blood began to ooze freely. The clod-pate still persisted that there was no harm, but whether his faith began to weaken or not, the poisonous symptoms soon began to show themselves in the rapid swelling of the hand. Among the company there was one who was ftware of the danger, who took and bandaged up his wrist and directed him to go to a quack veterinary in the Neighbourhood, who was a little acquainted with the antidote for the poison. Here he had his sufferings a little alleviated, and the danger checked. A message was despatched to Mr J. Evans, chemist at Narberth, who prescribed the proper remedy; and now Mr Nincompoop out of danger, and progressing favourably. It Is the received opinion that in future he will be more cautious 112 attempting to perform miracles.
CARDIGAN RIFLE V OLUNTEEBS.- The annual inspection Of this corps took place at the drill and skirmishing ground On Friday last, the 11th inst., and, as the day was re- markably fine, a great many of the ladies and gentlemen taeideot in the town and neighbourhood attended to witness the evolutions of the company, amongst whom Jere Colonel Davies of the Carmarthen Corps, Captain arry, of Tyllwyd, Penrallt, and other military gentle- men. Owing to the illness of Sergeant Barnes, the drill- Watructor appointed to this corps by government, the, Members had been deprived of the advantages of instruc- ted regular drill for some months past, and it was de- termined by the officers and members concerned in the Management of the affairs of the, corps, to endeavour to 'Wain the efficient services of Sergeant .Slate of the Pembrokeshire Militia, for the purpose of rubbing off the rust which it was feared want pi* practice had pro- duced, aad Major Lewis and Adjutant Willan very kindly granted the request of Capt Jenkins, the comman- der, of this company, and a fortnight back Sergeant Slatq Commenced the duties of drill instructor, and the result was very satisfactory to all the members of the corps, •ftd must be very gratifying to him. The corps assem- bled at two o'clock on Friday, and marched to the drill Rtound, preceded by their drum and fife band, and after a few preliminary movements the company was arranged id order for the reception of the inspecting officer, Colonel Dick, who arrived on the ground in Capt. Jenkins' car- riage about three o'clock, when the usual salute of 1 present arms' was given, and Colonel Dick immediately proceeded with the inspection. The ranks having been opened, Colonel Dick oarefully and minutely examined the arms and accoutrements of the members, with the Condition and appearance of which he was much pleased. The company was next put through numerous evolutions. And also much skirmishing with blank cartridge firing, and was constantly engaged for upwards of two hours, during the whole of which time Colonel Dick closely followed and watched the company. The inspecting Officer having intimated to Captain Jenkins his desire to ,idreatbe corps, the company was accordingly drawn up, and Colonel Dick very warmly expressed bis approbation of the manner in which they had performed their duties, and stated that 'all they did, including the skirmishing, tbey did extremely well,' and should they join any other corps or a battalion, they would be a credit.' Colonel Dick also highly complimented Captain Jenkins and the other officers as to the very efficient manner in which they discharged their duties. The company then gave hearty cheers for the Queen, the Lord Lieutenant, Colonel Dick, Captain Jenkins, and the other officers, the inspection *er«ninated.
TIVYSIDE HORTICULTURAL SOCIEIT.
TIVYSIDE HORTICULTURAL SOCIEIT. The first show in connection with this recently estab- lished society took pbce on Thursday, the 10th instant j was,a mqst decided success. ,The arranagements fof the show were made under the superintendence of the Committee of Management, consisting of the President, Sir Thomas Lloyd,; the Vice-President?, John Colby, Esq., Morgan Jones, Esq and Lieut.-Col. Davies; Capt. S. Jones Parry; John Griffith, Esq., Trevorgan Thomas Morgan, Esq., and R. D. Jenkins, Esq., the Treasurer *n& Honorary Secretary, and every thing was most satis- factorily managed. The show took place in the New Market Place, and the different butchers' stalls, which much resemble alcoves, Were appropriated for the different exhibitors, and were Excellently adapted for thepurposes; in fact, nothing 'could have been better arranged. The gardeners of the various gentlemen's seats of the neighbourhood vied with each other in their endeavours,to excel in tastefully de- corating the spaces allotted to them for exhibition, and where all were so eminently successful it was difficult to distinguish particular excellence; it was, however, be- yond doubt that the portion occupied by Castle Mael- gwyn ranked first in beauty of design and elegance of decoration, white that of Thomas Morgan, Esq., of Car- digan, held the second place the portions of Mrs Brigstocke, Blaenpant, and of Mrs Lloyd, Coedmore, being of equal merit for the. third position; but all were beantifullyand artistically embellished—the stall occupied by Morgan Jones, Esq.* having, in addition to; floral federations, a very handsome and appropriate device with the words 'Success to the Tivyside Horticultural '$how,' very beautifully arranged in flowers. v Th« day was remarkably fine, and a very large assem- blage of the neighbouring families of the Tivyside, with ladies and gentlemen friends, took place. The church bells rang merrily throughout the day in honour of the r-.Qcqasipo, and the Cardigan Brass Band played in the "v tMarket Place, during the day, and contributed consider- ably to the pleasure and vivacity of the scene. A great namber of competitors for the prizes entered their names, ..nl!, the fruits, vegetables, and flowers exhibited were superior of their kinds. There was one very beautiful Plant called cyoriophyllum tnagnificum, a native 01 Mada- gascar, which was exhibited from Mrs Gower's, of Castle Maelgwyn, the,leaves of which were upwards of three feet square in size; This excited general admiration. Indeed, Castle Maelgwyn was the most successfully re- Presented of any of the Tivyside mansions. The judges • chosen to adjudge the prizes were Mr Mark Lucas, gar- dener to J. H. Scourfield, Esq., M.P., W Williamston, Haverfordwest, and Mr Thomas Baynton, gardener to Lewes, Esq Llanayrow, and they discharged their ^et^as duties most satisfactorily.

She had not been to sea an hour, and was only a mile and a half north-east of Tynemoutft Castle, when she overtook the three-masted schooner the Belford, which had left Sunderland that morning, ooal-laden for Dundee and from some caufee unexplained -for the day was clear, and the sea smooth—she run into her with tremendous violence, and cut her down to the water's edge. The schooner immediately began to sink, and the crew had only time to scramble up the side of the steamer when the collier sank some min utes after she was struck. The master of the schooner and his crew have lost everything. After the accident the steamer, little if anything the worse, returned to Shields and landed the crew of the foundered vessel. THE WILL OF LORD CLYDK —The will of Field- Marshal the Right Hon. Colin Campbell, Lord Clyde, G.C.B., K.S.I., D.C.L., was proved in Her Majesty's Court of Probate on the 7th instant. The éxeentors and trustees are thus described :-M-ajor. General Henry Eyre, 98th, now commanding governor, Chatham; Lieutenant. Colonel Archibald Alison, C.B., formerly my military secretary while commander-in chief in India, and now assistant adjutant-general, head-quarters, London; Col. William Montagu Scott M'Murdo, C:B., aide-de-camp to the Queen; and Lieutenant-General Duncan Alexander Cameron, C.B., 42nd, now commanding Her Majesty's troops in New Zealand. The will and two codicils are dated May 23rd, 1863, and a third codicil in July last, signed Clyde, F.M.' There are many legacies to officers and personal friends. To Sir William Mansfield he leaves the sword presented to him by the City of London, toge- ther with the document conferring upon him the freedom of the City, and that Sir William (whom he wished to have appointed as an executor had not his official duties prevented him from acting) should be consulted as to what papers, if any, should be made public; and, should any memoir of himself (Lord Clyde) appear, which he would rather did not, it should be limited to Hart's 'Army List,* and be sitnpfy the recital of the services of a plain soldier. His lordship's personal property was sworn under £ 70,000. To his sister, Miss Alice Campbell, his lordship leaves an annuity of £ 1,000, and divides his real estate and the residue of his personal estate between her and General Eyre, leaving also to the general and his family many specific bequests.-Illustraled News. SUICIDE OF A DRUGGIST.—An inquest was held by the Sheffield coroner on Thursday into the circumstances of the deaths of a woman named Squires, who died in childbirth, and a druggist and accouchor named Harvey Oakes, who committed suicide to avoid a charge arising out of grossly improper treatment of the woman Squires. The facts of this painful inquiry are as follow;—Mrs Squires waa seized with the pains ot maternity on Tuea, day week, and on being attended by a wid wile named Charlton she was delivered of a child.' The; midwife ascertained that there were twins. The labour pains ceased after the birth of the first child, and the midwife, in her ignorance allowed the Wdman to remain for 12 hours without making any attempt to deliver her of the second child. At the end of that time she found that she could not deliver the woman owing to the position of the child, and she then sent for Oakes, who was a druggist, and who also practised as an accoucher, al- though he was not properly qualified either in law or fact. He most improperly gave the woman two powders to bring on the labour pains again, inateqd of altering the position of the child, when delivery would have been easy. After putting the poor woman in excruciating pain he tried to deliver her, but only succeeded in muti- lating the child in a shocking manner by the violence he used. He was then sent off the premises, and a surgeon (Mr Shaw) was sent for, and he delivered the woman in five minutes. Her system had sustained such a shock from the severe labour, and the injudicious and rough treatment of Oakes, that she could not rally and died on Tuesday. An inquest of course became necessary, amd Oakes seemed much agitated by the prospect that was before him. On Wednesday night, however, he seemed quite rational and cheerful. On Thursday morning, about six o'clock, he went down from his bed-room into his shop and returned in ten minutes. In another minute his servant beard him groaning, and on going into his room found him dying in bed. A bottle which contained prussic acid, was on the table, and the deceased had druak a large quantity. Prompt remeidies were used, but he died immediately. In his room was found a paper on which he had written—' Sept. 19 (wrong date), six &JB. Hunted to death, and being entirely innocent of the villanous imputations that are going to be sworn against me, is more than mortal man can bear. God bless my dear wife and family, my sisters and brothers,, my parents and (written in the corner after the other space was ex- hausted) may Heaven have mercy upon me.—EEARTEY OAK.ES.' There was no doubt that the woman died from the effects of the improper treatment by Oakea and Charlton, and the jury returned a verdict to that effect, and also that Oakes committed suicide during temporary insanity. DEATH OF REAR ADMIRAL WASHINGTON.—W» regret to announce the death of Rear Admiral John Wash- ington, late hydrographer to the British Admiralty, who expired at Havre on Wednesday last. It will be recol. lected that, owing to ill-health, the gallant officer was recently obliged to resign his position so that he has not long survived his retirement from official duties. He entered the navy on May 15, 1812, as a first class volun- teer on board the Junon, of 46 guJts, Captain James Sanders, fitting for the North American station, where he took part in many operations in the river Chesapeake, assisted in making prizes of several of the enemy's vessels, and contributed to the complete discomfiture of 15 gun boats that had been dispatched for the express purpose of capturing the Junon, after an action of three hours, fought on June 20, 181.3. Removing as mid- shipman, in the following October, to the Sybille, he sailed in that ship, in 1814, under Captain Forrest, with the Princess Caroline, Captain Downman, for the latitude of Greenland, in fruitless pursuit of the American Commodore Rogers. In November of the same- year, having returned to England,, he entered the Royai Naval College at Portsmouth. On leaving that institution he was received, in May,. 1S16; dn board the Forth, Captain Sir Thomas Louis, under whom he was again employed for upwards of three years on the coast of North America. He then, in succession, joined the Vengeur and the Superb, both on the South American station, where; be, remained, until after his promotion to the Tank of lieutenant, which took place on the 1st of January, 1821; He was subsequently employed on particular service,' add in August, 1830, was appointed to the Royal George, 120, as flag-lieu- tenant to Sir John Poer Beresford, commander in chief at the Fore, continuing to léVVe- under that officer in the Queen, until advanced to the rank of commander in 1833. To the active service consequent upon his'various appointments he had united the practice of maritime surveying and the related pursuits of a scientific hydro- grapher and geographer. In 1855 he succeeded Captain Maconochie as secretary of the Royal Geographical Society of London, but resigned that office in 1841, on being appointed to continue the survey of the Iforth Sea, which had for some time been in progress. During this undertaking, in which he was continually engaged until the close of 1844, he was occasionally occupied in cor- recting the existing charts,' as the positions* of tbe shoals, and the directions of the navigable channels, had in many cases become changed. In 1842 he had been appointed to the rank of post-captain in compliment to the King of Prussia. The survey was Captain Washington's last service afloat. In 1845 be was appointed a commissioner for inquiring into the state of the rivers, shores, and harbours of the United Kingdom. On the retirement of Rear Admiral Sir Francis Beaufort, in 1855, he was elevated to the responsiblef office of hydrographer to the Admiralty, and subsequently attained the tank of rear admiral. In 1833 Admiral Washington married Elcomora, youngest daughter of tho Rev. H. Askew, refctc* of Gray-; stock, in Cumberland, by whom he has issue. Deceased was a member of various learned societies, & ie the author of many papers of a scientific and usefsltharacter. EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPE OF A CHILD ON THE MID- LAN!) RAILWAY.—On Saturday, a little boy, four years | did, left Derby by the 3.38 express to Birmingham and Bristol, travelling in a first-class carriage. After they had gone a few miles the carriage door against which the child was leaning, flew open, and the little fellow fell out. The mother was in the greatest agony, but the train did not stop at Willington, and she had to wait in the greatest suspense until Hurton was reached. She then got out of tie, train, told what bad occurred, and Mr Harrison, the station-master, sent an express engine down the line AS far as Willington, but the child was nowhere to be found. Directly afterwards, however, a luggage train on its way from Derby to Birmingham arrived at Burton, and in the guard's van was the little fellow safe and sound.
