LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE CABINET MAKERS, HOUSE BUILDERS, AND JOINERS. A meeting of the cabinet makers, house builders. and joiners was held at the Bridge End Inn on the 9th instant, for the purpose of considering the hours of labour of, and also the rates of remunera- tion paid to, the workmen in the above trades in this neighbourhood. The meeting was well at- tended, and the subjects were discussed in a calm and temperate spirit. During the discussion, full information was given by the various speakers with reference to the wages paid in other towns, and also as to the hours of work observed, from which it appeared that the workmen in Haverford- west were in hoth respects in a much worse posi- tion than their brethren in other localities. It was ultimately resolved to present a petition to the employers, asking for a reduction of the hours of labours on Saturday from six to four in the after- noon, and also from 7.30 to seven on week nights during the winter months. The rate of wages was also considered, but it was decided to separate it from the time question, and that each workman should make an application on his own behalf. The following is a copy of the memorial which was presented to the masters To the Master Cabinet Makers, House Builders, and Joiners of Haverfordwest. At a meeting held at the Bridge End Inn on the 9th instant, it was resolved that we the under-signed journeymen in your employ, agree to submit the following to your notice, in the hope of arriving at an amicable arrangement and seeing that our numbers are decreased to less than one-fourth by men leaving for places where greater advantages are offered them, few remain to receive the boon we crave. Taking into consideration the high prices we have to pay for the common necessaries of life,and believing our condition requires attention equally with that of our fellow workmen in neigh- bouring towns, where there are higher rates of wages and fewer hours of labour, we feel justified in asking a little of the concessions granted by employers to employed in all towns throughout the United Kingdom, even where competition in our trade extensively prevails. We, therefore, most respectfully ask that our hours of labour may be diminished from six p.m. to four p.m. on Satur- days, and also from 7.30 p.m. to seven p.m. on the week nights of the winter months we are em- ployed by candle light. We also respectfully ask tor an increase of wages on the present rates.- We remain, with the greatest respect, the journeymen ZD in your employ.' [Here follow the signatures of the workmen.1 We understand that some of the masters have expressed themselves in favour of the reduction of the hours of labour as asked in the petition, a definite answer to which will be given this week. The request of the workmen is a very moderate one, and when the arguments which are advanced in its favour are fully considered, we have no doubt its justice will be universally ad- mitted. In each of these branches there are a number of highly skilled workmen, whose remu- neration is almost trifling in comparison with that paid in the large towns of the kingdom. Within the last two years, numbers of workmen have left Haverfordwest for London, where their services have been readily engaged at sums exceeding 0 el thrice the amount paid to them at home, and this increased rate of wages is also combined with a considerable reduction in the hours of labour. The Saturday half-holiday is generally observed, even in the Principality; and surely it masters in other towns can give their employes higher rates of wages with less hours of labour, the employers of Haverfordwest may try the experiment 01 grant- ing a part of these benefits to their workmen with- out incurring the slightest risk of injuring their interests or in any way endangering their own prosperity.
UNIVERSITY COIXEGE HOSPITAL.—In the Times of the 18th ult. we find that, at the last examination for prizes at the University College, Hospital, Mr David Havard, Newport, Pembrokeshire, obtained the first silver medal and certificate in the senior class of Anatomy, and a Certificate of Honour in the senior class of Physiology. This is the third medal besides Certificates of Honour which Mr Havard bas taken in the space of eighteen months. ROYAL PEMBROKESHIRE ARTILLERY MILITIA.-This re- giment assembled fur its annual training on the 8th inst. The muster was very good, the number present falling little short of the requi,ed strength. During the week the instruction of the men has been carried on with great vigour, and the progress made is very satisfactory, creditable alike to the sergeants and men. The officers pereent are Mxjor Lewis, Clynfiew, Adjutant Willan, Capt Jordan, Capt Wells, Capt Edwardes, Capt Owen, Lieut Walcott, Lieut Graham, Lieut Owen, and Lieut Bowtn. The last named officer also attended the in- duction of there eruils, who assembled on the lit inst. l Y NRTLAND. A drunken man what .Kiltie from the 'greea tod' in the steamer Dido last week, walked over by the hydraulic machine, but he happened to catch hold with his hands, where he hung suspended over the pontodn, sope 40 feet below. Capt R. Aylward, of the Malakoff steamer, immediately ran up the incline to his assistance, and managed to hold the fellow up until a rope passed round him, when he was pulled up: thus he narrowly escaped being killed. LIYE STOCK IN THK UNITED KINGDOM.—A return has just been issued from the statistical department of the Board of Trade, which gives several particulars respecting live stock in the United Kingdom. It appears that on the 5th March last. there were In tbe Unilerl Kingdom 8,316,960 cattle, 25,794,708 sheep, and 3,800,399 pig", Up to the 21st of April last 181,443 cattle either died or had been k'lled on account of the plague, being a loss of 3*68 computed upon estimated ordinary stock. The paper also contains a statement of the population and number of live stock in the United Kingdom and in various foreign countries ,FAIa,-The annual fair was held on Tuesday. There was a large number of sheep on offer, and a few horses. The demand for sheep of all descriptions was slack, and the business done was very small. In consequence of the orders of the Privy Council, cattle were not permitted to enter the fair. There was a numerous gathering of pleasure-seekers, but there was an unusual deficiency in the attendance of shows and other amusements of that character, with which this fair is generally well supplied, and which never fail to receieve a large amount of patronage from the country folks. RiFLB MATCH.—A match for a set of cleaning imple- ments for the Enfield Rifle, took place on Monday evening. The ranges were 500 and 600 yards, five shots at each distance. Wimbledon targets and scoring. The prize was won by L.-Corp. S. Thompson, with a score at 28 marks. The following are the principal scores; — 500 600 Total. L.-Corp. S. Thompson. 14 14 28 Sergt. T.

The muster will take place in Castle Square at two o'clock in the afternoon. We may mention that the Haverfordwest Volunteers who are present at this drill will be entitled to compete, free of entrance fee. for a prize of £10. pre- "ented lor competition by Co!. Peel at the annual prize meeting. The prize will be divided into several sums, and the ranges of the contist will be 200 and 400 yardt, five tibots at each distance. We trust the Haverfordwest Volunteers will muster strongly as attendance at bat- talion drill Is a necessary condition to entitle each member to receive the Government grant. CLERKS OF JUSTICES BiLL.—In the House of Com- mons on Wednesday, Mr Colville moved the second reading of the Clerks of Justices Bill, the object of which was to render clerks of county magistrates irremoveable except for misbehaviour; secondly, to enact that hence- forward they must be paid by salaries and not by fees; and thirdly and mainly, to disable them for the future from conducting the prosecutions of persons committed by magistrates under whom such cleiks serve. The in- tention of this, the principal provision of the bill, was to withdraw from county magistrates' clerks all tempta- tion to have persons improperly committed for trial. —Mr Goldney moved that the bill be read that day six months, which was seconded by Mr S. Cave.—Mr Scour- field, as a member of the committee that sat in 1855, would remind the honourable gentleman who had moved i the second reading that the question then raised was that of the appointment of a public prosecutor, and it was in reference to that question only that the preaentXord Chief Justice of the Queen's Bench pronounced the opinion which the h in. gentleman had quoted. If any improvement in the law on this subject were necessary, it ought to be attempted by a general measure brought forward on the responsibility of the government; and not by such patchwork legislation as was now proposed. As chair- man of quarter sessions for a period of eighteen years, he could bear testimony to the ability and integrity of the magistrates' clerks. During the whole of that time hardly any case had come to his notice where corrupt motives could be even inferred in the prosecutions con- ducted by the magistrates' clerks. He did not think it was the vice of the age to prosecute persons improperly, and one against which it would be necessary to take precautions. He hoped that the hon gentleman would not press his motion to a division.-Alter some discus- sion, the amendment was agreed to, and the bill was consequently lost. NEW MILFORD CONGREGATIONAL CHAPEL. — The first anniversary of the above chapel was held on the 3rd instant, 'lhe morning service was commenced by the Rev H. C. Ling, of Haverfordwest. Dr Rees, oi Swansea, preached a powerful and interesting sermon. In the afternoon, the Rev J. Griffiths, of Saint Florence, introduced, and the Rev David Bateman preached in Welsh. At five o'clock a tea party was held in the schoolroom, which was very numerously and respectably attended. At seven, a publio service was held in the chapel: the Rev Caleb Gwion, of Milford, introduced the service, and Dr Rees preached. The weather was fine, the sermons were very good, and the collections very liberal. After the morning service, the ministers and others sat down to a cold collation under the pre- sidency of William Trewent, E q, of Pembroke, and as the chapel is a bicentenary one addresses were delivered on subjects connected with it, by the worthy Chairman, Rev T. Davies (the minister), Rev E. L. Sbadrack, and Dr Rees. There were also present at the different ser- vices, the nevda D. Salmon, Pembroke; J. Williams, Haverfordwest; E. Thomas, Rhosemarket; M. Williams, and D. Lewis, New Milford; and William Evans, M.A, Pembroke Dock. The ministers of the county, both of the English and Welsh districts, take a great interest in this young and rising cause; they rejoice that harmony and good feeling prevail amongst the people. It is only four years ago since preaching was first commenced here, and the church now numbers about ninety mem- bers. The spirit ot bearing is on the increase; many members have been added to the church during the last six months.. May the Great Head of tbe Church con- tinue His favours and benediction to minister and people. Communicated.. ROYAL MEDICAL BENEVOLENT COLLEGE, EpSOM- The anniversary festival of this association, founded by our countryman, Dr. Propert, was celebrated at Wiltis's Rooms, St. James's, on Thursday week. Sir William Ferguson's appeal on behalf of the college was a most masterly effort, and will long be remembered by those who heard it. This institution was founded by the medical profession, as an asylum for those of their brethren who, from ill health, want of professional sue. cess, or other adverse influence", have sunk into poverty, aRd for the widows of medical men in reduced circum- stances. With it is combined a school, devoted, in part, to the gratuitous education of orphans of medical men. There are, at the present time, resident in the college at Epsom, 24 pensioners, being aged medical men, or their widows, eacli of whom ie provided with three comfortably furnished rooms, and an annual allowance of three and a-half tons of coal, and a pennon of ze21 a year. There are also resident in the college 200 boys, the sons of medical men, 40 of whom, being the foundation scholars, are educated-, boarded, clothed, and maintained entirely at the expense of the institution, while the remaindtr are charged se40 a year for an education of the highest class, board, washing, use of books, &c. There are also sotue day scholars, who need not necessarily be the tons of medical men. Since it was first opened in 1855, the institute has gone on increasing its number of supporters. Already a goodly number of boys have been trained and sent out, well prepared for the battle 01 life; many, as in the great public schools of our country, have, through the bounty of benefactors, received gratuitous education; and many of the weary and invalid of the medical profession have, in the college, already found the solace and com- fort of a home. The committee appeal for increased means to extend the good work, and they make their appeal, not to the medical men only, but to that public in whose service the medical man spends his days, tor whom hit time And energy, and too often his life are sacrificed They appeal to a public, who, dazzled by the stars of the profession, overlook those lesser lights, who humbly, earnestly, truthfully and unselfishly, study to benefit their race by the diffusion of the blessings re vealed by science. From no class ot men does the country derive so much advantage at so little cost. There is no body of men, who, with so little regard to aggran- disement, and under ló heavy a load of mOral responsi- bility, physical discomfort, and actual danger to them •selves andfamilier, do so- ouch unknown and un- requited". ..J. r. HAVERFORDWEST CORPORATION.—A meeting of the Haverfordwest Town Council was held on Monday. There were presentThe Mayor, John Madocks, Esq. Air J. W. Phillips, Mr H. P. Goode, Mr T. Whichet Davies, Mr M. Whittow. Mr J. Marychurch, Mr R. Williams, and Mr J. Phillips.—It was ordered that the old common seal of the Corporation be no longer used, and that the new seal recently made by Messrs Waterlow and Sons for the council, and none other, be the common seal of the Corporation.—It was also ordered that a pro- per box be provided lor the keeping of the seals, both old and new, and of the maces, and that the same be fitted with locks either of Chubb's or Hobb's manufacture —A deputation from the Trustees of Haward's Charity, con- sisting of Mr John Phillips and Mr Henry Davies, waited upon the council, requesting them to abandon their claim to the Alms Uoufe, and after some discussion it was resolved that the claims of the Corporation on the Trustees of Haward's Charity for the two sums of f 124 9. 5d and X31 19s for costs paid by the old council in the suit of the Attorney General v Tate, and for over pay ment to the almsmen and almswomen of that Charity be abandoned, counsel having advised that the said sums are irrecoverable; and that copies of the statement sub- mitted by the Trustees of Haward's Charity for the opinion of the Charity Commissioners in April, 1855, and of their opinion thereon, and also of the case submitted by the Corporation for the opinion of Mr Dart in Novem- ber, 1855, and of his two opinions thereon be forwarded to the Lords of the Treasury, and that their Lordships be requested to sanction the making over by the Cor- poration of the Lower Almshouse referred to in those documents to the Trustees of the Charity, the Trustees paying all expenses incurred thereby, and that the usual notice of such intended application to the Treasury be published forthwith.-It was also resolved that the re- commendation of the Water Committee made at this meeting on the 10th instant as to the advance of pay- ment to P.C. Codd, Morse, and Harries, and of the pay- ment of one shilling per week to Codd's wife, and the award of a good conduct stripe to P C. Codd, be adopted by the Council.-Mr Wbittow drew attention to the fact of cases of cholera having occurred in other parts of the Kingdom, and suggested that some measures should be taken to secure the cleansing of the town, and after some conversation, it was ordered that the Mayor, Mr Whit- tow, Mr Whicher Davies, Mr James Phillips, and Mr It. Williams be appointed a Nuisances Removal Commit- tee, and that Mr Whittow be appointed Secretary. Orders were made for the payment of several bills, and after transacting other business, the meeting separated.
BRISTOL BANKRUPTCY COURT.
BRISTOL BANKRUPTCY COURT. MONDAY, May 7.-(Before Mr Commissioner Hill.) Re G N. HASSKLL, Haverfordwest, auctioneer, &o.—Mr Blackburne (of the firm of Bramble and Blackburne), ap- peared for the assignees, and stated that there was no op- position. The bankrupt accordingly passed his last examination, and was granted an order of discharge. TUESDAY, May 8.-(Before Mr Commissioner Hill.) Be E. B. GlBBS, late of Haverfordwest, wine and spirit merchant. This was a prison case. No creditors' assignee had been chosen, and no opposition was offered. Mr J. Inskip appeared for the bankrupt, who passed her last ex- amination, and was granted an order of discharge. Re M. LEWIS. late of Pembroke Dock, licensed vie. tual er.- This was a sitting for last examination and discharge. No creditors' assignee had been appointed; Mr Hen- derson opposed for MrThomas, wine and spirit merchant, of Pembroke, a creditor for X142 8s 9d Mr Inskip ap. peared for the bankrupt. The grounds of opposition were the vexations defence of an action brought against the bankrupt by the oppos- ing creditor, the withholding of certain papers and re- ceipts which were alleged to be forgeries, and the con- tracting of debts without reasonable or probable expec- tations of payment. The whole estate was said to consist of an amount of debts to tb., extent of jg6. The bankrupt was examined by Mr Henderson, and it appeared in the course of the proceedings that she had been a petitioner in the Divorce Court, and had obtained a decree of judicial separation. Mr Henderson abandoned the charge of the withhold- ing of papers, and said he would take the judgment of the court on the other grounds of opposition. His Honour said the ca-ie was a very unsatisfactory one, and he did not know that he ought to pass the last examination on the present accounts. Mr J. Inskip said he could not justify the bankrupt's conduct in defending the action of Mr Thorna", nor could be say that some of the debts had been contracted with reasonable and ( robable expectation of payment. But he reminded the court of the position of the bankrupt, and also of the fact that she had been out of business for a year and had been subject to these debts since May, 11865. His Honour said the case was one in which he could not but feel sympathy for the bankrupt. She had been obliged to petition the Divorce Court for a separation from her husband, and was certainly much to be pitied. How much of the large amount of debt might be owing to the misconduct of her husband, or might have been the result of ignorance on her part, he could not tell. The court,' however, felt bound to give suih a judgment as should intimate its displeasure of a defence being made to an action where there was, and where there could be, no defence, and also of debts being contracted where certainly there seemed to have been, if the bankrupt had examined into the state of her affairs, no probability, and scarcely a possibility, that they could have been paid. Looking at both sides of the case, he thought justice would be done by a suspension of the order of discharge for six months, and he hoped the bankrupt, instead of entertaining any ill feeling towards Mr Thomas, would reflect that he was an Injured person, and that he had not opposed her In a manner in which many injured persons opposed bankrupts of whom they had to complain. Mr James Inskip applied for protection during the period of suspension, to which Mr Thomas consented, and His Honour said the course taken by that gentleman did him great credit.
COURT OF QUEEN'S BENCH, WESTMINSTER.
COURT OF QUEEN'S BENCH, WESTMINSTER. [Saturday, May 5th, before Blackburn, Mellor, and Lush, J. J.] CHAPMAN V. GWYTHER. This action was tried at the Guildhall sittings, London, in December last. The plaintiff, a horse dealer at Chel- tenham, sought to recover from the defendant, a farmer, residing at Trewent, near Pembroke, damages for breach of a warranty on the sale of a horse. The sale took place at Trewent. on the 5th of June, 1865. The price of the horse was £90. and the sale note given by the defendant to the plaintiff contained the words • Warranted sound for one month.' The plaintiff' alleged that the warranty' was broken by reason of the unsoundness of the horse, and produced witnesses who proved that on the 8th July following. the sale, the horse was lame, and suffering from 'navicular' disease. The jury found that the. horse was unsound at the time of sale, though not to the knowledge of the defendant, and returned a verdict for the plain- tiff for £82, subject, however, to a point reserved by the learned judge (Mr Justice Blackburn) who presided at the trial, for the opinion of the Court, as to the true con- struction to be put upon the warranty. Mr Giffard, Q C in last term, obtained a role calling upon the plaintiff to show cause why a nonsuit should not be entered, on the ground that the true meaning of the warranty was, that any unsoundness in the horse was to be discovered and complained of within a month. It was also made a part of the rule that counsel for plaintiff should be atliberty to move for a new trial, on the ground that the warranty ran from the 12th of June only-the day of the actual delivery of the horse to the plaintiff- and not from the 5th of June, the day of the sate. Mr H. Matthews, and Mr Moir, now appeared to show cause. They stated that in June last Mr Benjamin Chapman, the father of the plaintiff, went with a friend to the house of the defendant, at Trewent, and there bought for the plaintff the horse in question for £90. A warranty was drawn up by the friend, to which there was no demur, and ultimately it was arranged that the warranty should be for one month only, and the words Warranted sound for one month' were written by the defendant. On the 8th of June the plaintiff sent to the defendant a cbeque for the money, upon which was en- dowed another wrrranty, containing the words 'War- ranted Bound for one month from the delivery,' and on the 12th the horse was in facf delivered to the plaintiff. On the 8th of the following month of July—which WAS after the expiration of a month from the date of the first warranty, but Within a month from the actual delivery— the horse was found to he lame. The leagued counsel contended that the words Warranted sound, for a month' tpeant that the horse was soundwhentfie Warranty was given, and Wtild continue sound for s.month, end that consequently tbe defendant wias liable, because the jury had found that the borse was unsound af toe time of sale. Oil the other pbfht, the plaintiff's co^nisl confided t4 at Ota the other pbfht, the plaintiff's co^nisl confided that' tbe warranty wrirtefa pri thf enwoe, which was to ran tool! an -'mm iM Jrtiiiitt* tito* the plaintiff accepted, his father not being authorised to sc* cept any other, and was therefore the one by which tn« defendant was bound. Mr Ben T. Williams, for the defendant, argued that the interpretation of the warranty contended for by tna plaintiff's counsel, extended, rather than limited, liability of the defendant. An ordinary warranty out any limitation as to time would be good only, against any unsoundness or seeds of unsoundness exist. ing at the time ot sale, but if the plaintiff's contention* were correct, the defendant's liability would extend not only to disease or unsoundness in existence at the tio of sale, but also to any which might be originated witDi a month after the sale—a supposition which was festly unreasonable. The defendant. on the other bandt contended that his intention in giving a warranty month was to restrict his liability to unsoundness at the time of the sale, and which should be discover and notified to him within a month from that time. that inasmuch as no no'tce of unsoundness was g'reI\!jr bim, nor any unsoundness discovered within tbe montHi his liability on the warranty was at an end-Bywakr V, Richat duo/1, 1 A. & E.
