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.
