Sarah Amelia Davie" deposed that she was the wife of Daniel Davies, residing at Merlin's Bridge. She went to town on the morning of Monday, and on her return home, the fonnd that a box had been broken open, and some material (or dresses, a shawl, and a stays were taken away. The lock was broken, and the lid was off the hinfes. A pair of stockings, an apron, and a chemise were also stolen. The prisoner was in the house the night before. P.O. Griffiths deposed that be went in search of the prisoner to the houqe of Mrs Collins, farmer, of Burton. tlrll Collins, in the prisoner's presence, handed to him the articles he produced, saying that they had been brought <0 the house by the prisoner. The prisoner said that hfr mother-in-law had a shawl of hers, and she had kept the one produced instead of it. He then took her into oustody. The prisoner elected to be tried summarily, and the Bench committed her to prison for two months with hard labour. Capt Stokes stated that another charge would be pre- ferred against her for an offence committed in Haver- fordwest.
TEN B Y. The cuckoo has been heard this season on Caldy Island. The boatman belonging to the island, known far and wide as' Ned of Caldy,' avers that the harbinger of spring 'does not always visit them; but that, in «very year its note is beard, a wedding is sure to take place among the inhabitants. The much vexed question of compensation between Mr and Mrs Lock and the Tenby Corporation has at length been decided. The award is that the Cor- poration pay to Mrs Lock £ 35, and to Mr Lock X2 IOs, The expenses, we believe, of the first award will fall on the Corporation, and of the latter Mr Lock will have to bear his own proportion. POLICE COURT, MAY 7, 1866.—Before the Mayor, Dr Dyster, and Uev. T. H. Dunn -Mr William Noot, late assistant overseer, made au appeal against the poor rate for the parish of St Mary, Tenby In-liberty, on the ffround of inequality in the assessment. As Mr Noot had failed to comply with the Act 27 & 28 Vict. c. 39, which requires that all appellants should give notice of their intention to appeal to tbe Assessment Committee, twenty- eight days before such appeal is to be heard, (in order to Rive the committee, if so dispo-ed, the opportunity of defending their assessment.) the Bench did not enter on the merits of the case, but dismissed the appeal for in- formality, ordering the appellant to pay costs. GENERAL TOM THUMB.—On Monday week, General Tom Thumb and family, Commodore Nutt, and Miss Minnie Warren, visited Tenby. The afternoon and evening levees were attended by a numerous audience. Most of the elite of the neighbourhood visited the Gate House Assembly Rooms in the afternoon; while in the evening, though not so select, the company was still more nn- merouR-his Generalship will not have occasion to regret his visit to Tenhy. A neighbouring dwarf came to see them, and afforded many of the company an opportunity of comparing them. The largest of the General's com- pany was considerably smaller than their visitor, and the symmetry of all their proportions contrasted very strongly with the deformity ot the country dwarf. Commodore Nutt is, besides his extremely small stature, one of the cleverest little beings we have ever seen: his comic talent would be sufficiently evident if be was of ordinary stature, his performance on the drum was well worth the admission money to witness. Mrs Stratton's singing pleased every one. and their perfect enunciatton enabled persons to hear every syllable even in the extreme parts of the house. SAUNDERSFOOT PETTY SESSIONS, May 8, 1866 -Before Dr Uyster and the Rev. T. H. L)unn.- Three persens were summoned by the police for allowing their don- .keys to stray on the highway, and were ordered to pay costs, 4s 6d each, and to enter into their own recogni- zances to appe r to receive judgment when called on so to do—Timothy Donovan, who had been repeatedly summoned for allowing a mischievous donkey to stray, appeared again to answer a similar complaint, but as it appeared that the animal was now out of his possession, he was discharged on payment of 2s costs.—Mr Hughes appeared to answer a complaint for moving cattle without a license. The offence appeared to have been the result of a misconception, and be was discharged on payment o' eoste.—Thursday, May 5th.Before Dr Dyster.-Charles Coomb, a sailor belonging to the schooner Dee, of Chester, was brought up in custody of the police as a dangerous lunatio wandering at large. He had run away from his vessel under the persuasion that a conspiracy was formed by his companiois to destroy him. He had only joined the vessel a week before, and had been quiet, sober, and well-conducted. The poor law medical officer was directed to examine him, and pronounced him insane, a fact sufficiently obvious to all who saw him. The un- fortunate man was conveyed to the Joint Counties Lu- natic Asylum at Carmarthen.
TENBY CORPORATION. A Special Meeting of the Town Oouncil was held on Tuesday the 8th inst., present,-The Mayor; Aldermen Wells and Jenkins; Councillors Gregory, Mends, Stone, Birkin, Gifford, and Phillips. It was proposed by the Mayor, and seconded by Mr Mends,—'That the corporate seal be attached to the petition to the Lords Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury, for leave to apply a sum of £ 550, now standing to the credit of the Corporation, (being part of the money arising from the sale of land to the Pembroke and Tenby Railway Extension Company,) for the purpose of obtaining a larger and more continuous supply of water for the purposes of this borough.' A letter, dated 23rd April, 1866, from the Surveyor of the War Department to Messrs G)ode and Owen, of Haverfordwest, having been read, offering X800 for the absolute possession of St Catherine's Island, the Corpo- ration to pay out, or otherwise get rid of the person whose sheep are allowed to graze thereon, Proposed by Alderman Jenkins, and seconded by Alderman Wells,-—' That the offer of the War Depart- for St Catherine's Island be accepted.'

WELSH MEMORIAL PRESENTED TO THtC QUEEN. ^VVe are permitted by the Mayor to print the following Windsor Castle, May 5, 1865. f have the honour to acknowledge the/receipt r the Book, descriptive of the Welsh Memorial to the rince Consort, which you have forwarded, and am commanded to signify to you Her Majesty's gracious Acceptance of the same. ^e Queen desires me at the same time to express to. £ On, and begs you to convey to Archdeacon Clark, and "P this Vor* Her Majesty's t £ am ?L .on of the kind feelings which have prompted •and Place'n Her Majesty's possession, so interesting zi. so beautifully illustrated an account of an event Action Ma^esty looki upon with the greatest satis- .I" "I have the honour to be, Sit, Tour obedient humble Servant, S^WhUe. Esq, Mayor, Tenby>M' BlDDUU>H' WAA i not see the memorial volume when it •Sd naturi^frweek ,ike t0 knw the number ™u'«nttoM which Her Majesty has ^•oription of tl«^n^eauand we therefore append a 'I'nminated frontispiece by Miss Willis. *a this ^efligaconiists of the figure of 1.WU& wings cxtend»d,h)mn$» icroll iawribed •• •' »•' < :■ with the Prince Consort's motto, I Treu und fest.' From either side of this central figure proceeds a wreathed border bf flowers and foliage, of the Conventional type suited to illumination, arrantted in cfrrves of singular! grace, and abounding in pure colour and delicate fancy. Birds which seem to have come out of the fairy tales of our childhood sit*upon. the branches, and there i* a butterfly from whose wings we really fear to brush the golden bloom. The leek, mistletoe, and ears of corn, emblems of Wales, are introduced with excellent taste, so at not to interfere with the character of the design. 2nd.—Two watercolour drawing by George L. Hall, Esq. These are characteristic views of Tenby, taken from the north and from the south. They are exceedingly delicate and truthful. The southern view represents an evening effect, hazy yet lustrous, suffused with pale rose-coloured light. The foreground—a great difficulty to an artist portraying Tenby from this side-is skilfully managed; a bit of shadowed sand-hill being introduced so as to make a strong point without, losing the character of the scene. The northern view is by full daylight, though the day chosen is of the cloudiest. It seems to us the more vigorous drawing of the two; the curve of the bay. and the green transparency of a tranquil tieu, are admirably given. 3rd.—Photographs of the statue and shields. These are remarkably fine. It is not necessary to describe them in detail as they may of course be procured by any one who wishes to have them. The same reason renders an account of the printed portion of the volume un- necessary. The binding—white vellum with a gold border-was in perfect taste. The duplicate volume presented to Prince Arthur was hound in blue moroc< o, and was of a smaller size, in order that it might be enclosed in an exceedingly beautiful casket, the work of Lieut-Colonel and Airs Poole. This oasket was composed of white boxwood, framed in ebony. It was carved in open work, 10 a design of great eleganca, introducing the rose, thistle, shamrock, and leek. On a large medaliion in the centre of the cover was an exquisitely painted birds' nest supported by a branch of blossoming May. Four small lIIedallJous on tixttides of the casket bore sprays of spring flowers. The grace and freshness of these tiny pictures could not easily be surpassed. The book, contained in this da!nty envelope, was presented to the young Prince on his birthday, the first of May. It is understood that the entire expense of getting up these two volumes was borne by the Mayor, though he did not wish to separate himself from his fellow-townsmen in presenting them. A very pleasinc letter was also received by the Mayor from H.R.H. acknowledging the receipt of the book presented to him. We consider that the presentatioil of these very handsome volumes, forms a very fitting finish to the subject of the Welsh Memorial, and we give our hearty congratulation* to the Mayor on so successful a termination to a matter so well begun.
PEMBROKE PEMBROKE MAY PAIR was held on Monday there was no cattle for sale. There was a scanty supply of pigs, good samples of which realized a fair price.

These sessions were held at the Town Hall on Satur- day, before Jonas Dawkins, Esq, Mayor, J. H. Bryant, Esq, Capt. II. Leach, W. Hulm, and F. L. Clark, Esqrs. Caroline Davies, of Orange Gardens, Pembroke, charged William Gwyther, her uncle, of same place, with assaulting her on the 3rd inst. Complainant deposed: I am the wife of Henry D ivies, I was at the Slaughter-house on the 3rd ins' I saw defendant's boy there: I asked him to carry my" pail up to my house, telling him I would give him a penny for doing so when we were near Orange Gardens, defendant said his boy should not carry the pail for Henry Davies or Lis ——- of a wife. I asked him could be prove it before the words hardly came out of my mouth he struck me several times with the handle of a whip. Sarah Gwyther deposed I am complainant's mother. I heard illiam Gwyther tell the boy he should not be a servant to Henry Davies or his —— of a wife she asked him could he prove it when he struck her with the goad of a whip and picked up a stone and swore be would knock her brains out. He then walked away. Defendant denied the assault pri 'r to complainant striking him with a spreader and called his son, John Gwytber who deposed I am going on 13 years of age. I have not been in school only two wef ks, that is some time since. I could read the Testament then, but now I cannot read print. I am the son of defendant. On the day in question I was carrying a pail for com- plainant to Orange Gardens. I met father; he was carrying a whip with him behind his back and the baby was on his arm. I put down the pail fearing he would beat me. he told me 1 should not carry it for her. I did not hear him call her bad names: complainant threw down the saw and suet she was carrying, and struck my father with the spreader then father struck her with the whip. Matilda Gwytber deposed: I am defendant's daughter and brother to the last witness. I corroborate his evidence it is all true. The Bench dismissed the case ordering each party to pay its own oosts. Costs paid. [F. L. Clark, Esq, retired from the bench at the hearing of next case ] F. L. Clark, Esq, v.

Meyrick, Esq, on Bush estate. About eittht o'clock on the even- ing of the 5th inst., I saw William Liwis, the defendant, Ferrywood, cutting underwood. I told him he was doing wrong. He said be did not know be was doing harm. I told him to go away, and that be should hear again about it. He gave me his name as Thomas Jones, and lived in Back-street, Middle-street, Pembroke dock. He had cut three oak saplings, one as'i. and two hazleo. I went with the policeman who served the summons, to Identify the man, as he had given a wrong name, and found he lived at Pembroke Ferry, in a very poor and filthy state, and having six poor young children. When Mr Clark, the comptainaht, found that defendant was so poor he withdrew the charge, and defendant was discharged with a oaution.

The muster was very good, and the drill was gone through in a very creditable manner. Unfortunately, the weather proved unpropitious, and the drill terminated earlier than was intended. Previous to the dismissal, Col. Peel addressed the men, complimenting them upon the manner in which they bad performed their exercise. We have been requested to mention that a sword was lost from a vehicle on the road from Narberth to Haver- fordwest. It being a wet evening, the swird was placed under cover in the vehicle, and during the journey, it was shaken out of the scabbard by the motion of the vehicle. Any person who can give information which will lead to its recovery is requested to communicate with Sergt. Major Reid, of the Haverfordweat Volun- teers. BEGELLT.-On Sunday and Monday, April 29th and 30th, most interesting services were held in connection with the reopening of the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, Begelly. Sermons were preached by Revds D. Anthony, B.A., Thomas Burditt, M.A., Tenby W. Evans, M.A Pembroke Dock W. Powell, Pembroke Moses Wil- liams, New Milford; W. Williams, Haverfordwestand Pendine; Joseph Evans, Carmarthen; and Griffith Davies, Aberystwythi The congregations nere very large-scores were not able to get in in the afternoon and evening services. The preaching would have been in the open air had the weather been warmer. The collections were very g"od, amounting to £ 27. The in- habitants of Begelly showed great kindness to the strangers who were present, manv of them following the Bxample given by Jame* Mark Child, Eiq., who opened his house to all, and provided a sumptuous dinner. This is the second chapel the Calvinistic Methodists have built in this neighbourhood within a period of two years. It is confessed by all that they are ornaments to the neighbourhood, Bethesda was rebuilt at a cost of JB250. of which only JE16 remain as a debt. Bogelly was re- built at a oost of £ 280, of wbicL not more than j630 I remain as a debt; and we are determined, if spared, to Blear them before next winter sets in. We feel it is our John Thon. ,s c. Capt Child.—Mr H. Lnscellea ap. peared for the plaintiff; the defendant appeared in per- son. Mr Lascslles, in opening the CMO, said that the plaintiff had some time ago been employed by the de. fendant as a mason; that his wages had never beeq paid, and that on his applying to defendant for his money, he bad been told that one Phillips, tinder whom he worked, bad,been contracted with and paid by the job for th9 work- he had been employed ou, and that he must look to him for payment. On the faith of this statement the plaintiff bad soed Phillips ifi thi*' Court, when it bad been shown that Phillips had been employed by this week. The plaintiff sued Capt Child for the amount due to him for wa«6». The Plaintiff being sworn, said that Phillips had asked hlift to »»4 irork 90 I a barn, and had told him to go to Capt Child for direc- tions, and bad done so, and had reoeived a lime riddle from his own hands to work with. He had been paid no Wages, and on asking Capt Child for them was told that he was not answerable, as he had paid Phillips by con- tract for the work done. He charged 28 3d a day, which was bis usual wages. John Phillips deposed to having sent the plaintiff to agree with the defendant for work. The defendant had after the week was commenced constantly seen the plaintiff working. He (Phillips) was hired by the week. and had been paid as a weekly workman. Some of his wages were still due. Mr Lupcelles put in a letter from an agent of Ceptain Child to the plaintiff, which acknowledged a sum nearly the same to have been due to the plaintiff; the only question being whether the plaintiff was to have 2s or 2s 3d a day For the defence. the defendant called Jeremiah Thomas, who said that he knew nothing whatever about the matter exepr what he had heard in Cnurt that day. Frederick Newton Bowen, Esq, deposed to some con- versation between the defendant and himself, when Mr Lascelles objected that it was not evidence and his ex- amination ended. The defendant then announced his attention of giving evidence, and on being sworn said that he had told Phillips Mr Lascelles: Was the plaintiff present? Witness: No. J udle: Then you can't Rive us that conversation. Defendant then asked if he might recall the plaintiff to cro-s-examine him and hoped his honour would ex- cuse him on account of the peculiarity of his situation. The plaintiff, being recalled, was asked by the de- fendant how it was that he bad sued another man at the last rourt Witness: Because you told me that he bad to pay me. The defendant then said he would say no more, bat leave the case in his Honour's hands. His Honour said that the contract had been clearly proved by the plaintiff, and ) hit there bad been no at- tempt on the part of the defendant to deny it: the only question, therefore was the amount due. As it had been. proved by both witnesses that 2s 3d per day, which was- charged, was proper, be must give judgment for the plaintiff with costs.

Mr Super- intendent Bent attended on the part of the Commissioners to support the summons. Wr Crombie then explained that the cattle had been removed under a misapprehen- sion on the part of the officers of the company, who were entitled to carry from the Cattle Market. H" had a cer- tificate stating that the cattle were perfectly sound, and also for their removal to their railway.
