We learn that the lad was "ding on the waggon, and in getting down put his foot on one of the wheels. His foot slipping, it went between the flat of the wheel and the rail, breaking the and crushing the fore part of the foot; providentially fe escaped the flange of the wheel or the foot would have °een amputated. On Tuesday evening week a boat, with ten young men, from Saundersfoot to Tenby.

We can only say that by reason of the running from Carmarthen to Whitland being over the South Wales the inhabitants of the district and of Carmarthen in particular will have to regret the loss of a great many advantages which a separate line would have afforded them. The following is the telegram to which we refer above :—'Pembroke and Tenby bill; preamble proved. But promoters have agreed that the portion between Whitland and the junction of Pembroke and Tenby into Carmarthen shall not be made if Great Western Company lay down the narrow gauge immediately and concede full running powers. Great Western Company have agreed to do this.'—Carmarthen Journal.
