TENBY. ] PENALLY.—The evening service at Penally Church, for the summer, will take place on Sundays at 6, instead -1 if 3 p.m. o A LARGE PORPOISE was captured by the Tenby fisher- 1 men on the 14th instant, and when being exhibited on n the following evening was still alive. We believe this P to be an extraordinary circumstance. 11 PHINCE ARTHUR AND THE MAYOR OF TENBY.We have great plea-nre in in'orming our readers that His Royal Highne-s Prince Arthur has been pleased to pre- senttoG.

Frogs, flees, lice, locusts, were of the plagues of Egypt, but dogs are the plagues ot Tenby. Many curs, half starved hounds, bristling 4 terriers, bnge-faced beetle-browed bull-dogs, dirt-be- smeared 4 Isle of Skyes,shaggy NewfoundIttiids, quick- tempered pointers, snarling pugs, dogs of breed, dogs of I half-breed, dogs of no breed at all, beset you in your pere- t grinations through the streets. Illegal assemblies of the c canine inhabitants of the town take place at all hours, all c places, and under all circumstances; ifghts are cbntmu- ally being arranged Lnd coming off, to the Intense annoy- f ance of the passers by. In the good old catholic times t some religious instiuttont prided tbemsetve" on making the office of prayer continual; and unremitting. So with c the dogs of Tenby-tbehowl, cry, and yelp or batk never t ceases; no muezzin ever gave the caU lroui mosque f or minaret with greater persistence and regularity, f Could Byron have had his choice when be had • rather ( be a dng and bay the moon,' he would havebad most1 delightful company. But seriously can nothing be done < to mitigate this most atrocious evil? The warm weather is coming, and to nervous invalids a pjngtte of dogs is 1 then no joke. Shoot, hang, andpoitun, good authori- i ties; or, still better, see that every one who keeps a dog I pays taxes for it. I NARROW ESCAPE,—OnWednssday, the 16th instant, two men who were e^gaged in diggfibg the foundation of a ntiilding immediatoty onder pari of the old wallssur- rounding the Castle "Hill^ observed a small quantity of earth to trickle down. On looking tip, they wt re alaroted at seeing a large portion of the wall overhead rock, and they had just sufficient time to get out of its way when a huge piece of wall, tome forty leet in length, came down with a trmeadona crsebi But for the warning earth (that was so small in quantity that it might have been easily disregarded) and the death of the tWo men would have been inevitable We must say that it is much tf be regretted that the digging of the foundation referred to, should have been carried out so far as to cause the mutilation of the ancient walls. of which the majority o the townsfolk are justly so proud. The portion of the wall so destroyed will of course have to he rebuilt, but it must be evident that a bit of Iiipic and span' new build- ing, erected I chev k by jowl' with the old walla will ill a great measure destroy the charm of antiquity with which the Castle Hill is invested. New wall ng may be more mathematically 'correct,' but must yield to the lichen-covered walls in piettiresqueness of appearance. We hope the authorities and town-folks generally will most jealously guard these relics of bye gone ages; un- don htedly they form one of the principal attractions to visitors, and shotud he taken care of as such, it not with the crithusiatitn of artistic taste at d tippreciation, with tbe careful arid prudent forethought of men 01 business, who are desirous of maintaining everything that in any way brings 1 grist to the tuiii.1 TENBY CORPORATION.
