LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. HAVERFORDWEST RIFLE CORPS.-CoI. Peel's prize, presented for attendance at drill, during the month or July, will be shot for on Monday next. The ranges will be 200 and 500 yards, five shots at each distance. Wim- bledon targets and scoing. The first sCWlad selected ac- cording to priority of attendance on the range, will be formed at four o'clock, and will complete the two ranges in succession. Squads will be formed at hall-past five and half-past six o'clock. NEYLAND.—Through the kindness of Colonel Moore, j commandant of the 13th depot battalion, the band of the battalion will play in the beautiful grounds of the South Wales Rotel on every Thursday afternoon, from three until five o'clock, during the ensuing months, weather permitting. We believe that Mr Williams, of the hotel, was mainly instrumental in procuring this boon, to the inhabitants, from Colonel Moore, and the other officers. THE CHURCHES OF PRENDERGAST, HAVERFORDWEST, AND ST CATHERINE, MILFORD.—We are glad to ob- serve that the Incorporated Society for promoting the enlargement, building, and repairing of churches and chapels, which held its last meeting for the present session (and till November next) on Monday se'nnight, at the society's house, No. 7, Whitehall, when grants of money were made in aid of rebuilding (amongst others) the church of Prendergast, in this town, and for en- larging, and restoring, and re-arranging the seats of St Katherine's. We trust that all the old monuments and inscriptions in the Prendergast church will be rigidly preserved and replaced in the new edifice. ACCIDENT.-On Monday evening, a valuable horse, the property of Mr Whicher Davies, which was drawing a cart laden with hay, took fright at the breaking of a portion of the harness, and ran off at full speed along Shut-street, near St Mary's Church, and down the High-street. The impetus of the heavy load in the cart pressed the animal forward, and it rushed along the decline at a tremendous speed. Strange as it may seem, the horse, on observing the railway cart in the narrow part of the street, contrived to avoid a collision by swerving to the left side but in endeavouring to re- gain the centre of the street, it ran against the kerb- stone near the establishment of Mr P. Ellis, and was thrown down. Assistance was instantly rendered, and the animal, to the great surprise of all present, was ex- tricated with no other injury than a slight abrasion on one of its hind legs. THB MORAVIAN CHAPEL FUND.-The annual sermons in aid of this fund were preached by the Rev John England, at the Brethren's Chapel in St. Thomas Green, In the morning and evening of Sunday last. The rev. gentleman preached an excellent sermon on each occasion, earning the admiration of a numerous congregation by his clear and masterly exposition of the teachings of his texts, and by the good, homely, and pure language which characterised his discourses. The collections at the close of the services were, we believe, in advance of those of last year. On Monday evening the rev. gentle- man delivered a lecture at the Shire Hall, in behalf of the same object. In the absence of W. Owen, Esq, of Withy- bush, the chair was taksn by the Mayor, John Madocks, Esq. The subject of the lecture was 'Proverbial senti- ments and their teachings,' which the rev. gentleman treated with great ability. The sentiments were selected from the popular sayings of this and other nations, and were most skilfully arranged, and while one class of proverbs under the rev. gentleman's humorous treatment was provocative of great mirth, others were made the medium for conveying good, moral, and spiritual instruction. At the close of the lecture, Mr W. Phillips, of Market-street, proposed in complimentary terms, a vote of thanks to the rev. lecturer, which on being seconded by the respected pastor of the Brethren's Chapel, the Rev J. E. Eberle, was put to the meeting by the Mayor, and carried with acclamation. A cordial vote of thanks to the Mayor, for his kindness in presiding, oODcluded the proceedings. CRICKET MATCH.—A cricket match was played at Portfield, on the 23rd instant, between, the Commerce House and the Haverfordwest Junior Clubs, which resulted in favour of the former by one run and nine wickets to go down.

THE WESLEY AN CONFERENCE.—The Conference com- menced its 123rd annual session on Thursday morning, the 26th ult, at Leeds. The following is the return of the votes for president and secretary :-For the president, Rev William Arthur, M.A., 243; Rev John Bedford, 70; Rev George Scott, D.D., 26; Rev John Farrar, 17; Rev Charles Haydon, 15; Rev H.

CRICKET.—A match was played on Portfield on Thurs- day between the best eleven and the next twenty-two of the Haverfordwest Club. The game was very closely contested, but time would not permit of its being played out, and it was decided by the first innings, in which the eleven made forty, and the twenty-two, ninety-two runs. Some good individual scores were made on the part of the eleven, as will be seen from the result which we subjoin THE FIRST ELEVEN. 1st Innings. 2nd Innings.

On Monday evening shortly after five o'clock a fire was discovered in the cellar of Mr William Wil- liams, druggist, Market-street, which but for the ex- 119 ceedingly prompt assistance rendered might have been attended with the most disastrous consequences. The cellar is used as a store, and at the time of the accident contained, amongst a great variety of articles such as are used in the business of a druggist, a quantity of phosphorus, in the spontaneous combus- tion of which it is believed the fire originated. j he alarm brought a great number of people to the spot, and under the active direction of Mr Cecil, the Corporation engine was laid on, a good supply of water being obtained from a large well in the Corn Market. An additional supply was also obtained from a well on the premises of Mr Williams, and from a pump in the Meat Market, the water being conveyed by pails, handed along rows of persons extending from the wells to the burning premises. The large quantity of water thrown into the cellar appeared for some time to have no effect, and smoke of a sulphurous smell, without however any appear- ance of flames, continued to issue from it in dense volumes, almost poisoning the air in the immediate vicinity of the building, and rendering it impossible to go into the cellar. After half an hour's unceasing exertion, it was discovered that a partition wall in the cellar prevented the delivery of the full force of the water, and that flames were extending along the wood work of the ceiling beneath the shop. A hole was made in the floor of the shop, and a portion of the partition wall being cut away, the hose was directed at the seat of the fire, which in a short time was completely extinguished. Much confusion pre- vailed at the first onset, the large quantity of smoke issuing from the cellar raising the inference that the whole of the cellar was on fire; acting on this opinion, goods were removed from the shop, and also a considerable portion of the bedding and furni- ture. Some of the articles were removed to the houses of neighbours, and others to the Meat Market and we regret to state that several articles, such as bottles of wine and tobacco, were stolen by some vagabonds who appear to have been present at the scene for no other object than to take advantage of the misfortune. In pleasing contrast to this was the conduct of the crowd generally, who did all they possibly could to extinguish the fire and to protect the property. Two or three instances of theft were detected on the spot by some gentlemen who were rendering most valuable assistance, but in the hurry of the moment, they could not detain the rascals in custody, and were obliged to be content with the recovery of the property. Of the extent of the damage no correct estimate can at this moment be given it is stated on a rough calculation it exceeds £150, in which estimate is included the loss by fire, I and injury to goods during removal. Several bottles of wine were broken, and candles, soap and tobacco, to the value of £ 30, were burnt. The shop had only re- cently been improved at great expense, and the premises boing well stored with quantities of oils and inflammable materials, the whole of the building, and perhaps some of the adjoining ones, would have been consumed, had not the fire bpen so early dis- covered. We understand that the premises are in- sured, ajid the damage sustained will be repaired at the cost cf the Insurance Office. HAVERFORDWEST PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Wednesday, before James Boweu, Esq, and Thos. Rowlands, Esq. BREACH OF THE PEACE. Samuel Roclt, farrier, of Ruther Lane, was charged by Mary Morris, of Prendergast, with using langage towards her calculated to produce a breach of the peace. Mr Price appeared for the complainant. The defendant, in reply to the charge, said that he did make use of the expression, but the com- plainant bad previously called him a liar. The complainant was buying potatoes of a woman in the market, and he saw her take up more potatoes than sbe purchased, and put them in her basket. t He said to her—'It is time for you to stop;' shi said 'Why?' and he replied, 'For you have takei more than your own.' She said, 'You are a liar,' and he then replied, 'I must call you thief for so doing.' Mr Price remarked that the whole of the pota- toes were in court, and the exact quantity could be ascertained. The Clerk observed that the question was whe- ther the defendant used words calculated to create a breach of the peace. The charge of stealing potatoes was another case, and had nothing to do with the one before the court. The complainant deposed that she was in the Market on the 30th of June, and asked a woman what was the price of the potatoes which she had to sell. The woman replied, '.Twopence a pound,' and she asked for two pounds, tendering her a shilling in payment. The potatoes were weighed, and the woman gave her nine pence back in change. She told her that eight pence was the proper change, and returned the penny which she had given over. The potatoes were placed in a small fancy basket, and in doing so, some fell down by the side. She was picking them up, when defen- dant said: You have taken what does not be- long to you: you are a thief.' She replied that she had paid for what she had got, and he then used very bad language to her, frightening her so much that she scarcely knew what she did. She did not call him a liar. The defendant said he did call her a thief. The Clerk Were the potatoes your property ? Defendant: No. The Clerk: If the woman who sold the potatoes was satisfied, I don't see what you had to do with it. The Bench ordered the defendant to be bound over in the sum of £5, to be of good behaviour for two months. Mr Rowlands It is the better plan not to inter- fere with other persons. Miss Morris is a respect- able person, and would not be guilty of anything of the kind. The defendant was ordered to pay the costs, amounting to 14s 6d. MAINTENANCE OF CHILDREN IN REFORMATORIES. James Davies, of Orowhill, was summoned by Supt Cecil to show cause why he should not con- tribute towards the maintenance of his son, Thomas Davies, aged fourteen years, detained at a Refor- matory in Monmouthshire. The defendant pleaded inability, stating that he was a poor man, and bad a large family to maintain. In reply to the Bench, he stated that he had been earning ten shillings a week and his food, but that he sometimes earned less. He did deal in pigs, and also in cattle, but he would relinquish that, if he could get work. The Bench ordered the defendant to contribute Is 6d a week towards the maintenance of his son. William Tabram was summoned to show cause why he sbonld not contribute towards the main- tenance of Frances Tabram, his daughter, now con- fined in a Reformatory at Exeter. The defendant did not appear. Mr Cecil produced the documents authorising him to take proceedings against defendant, who he stated was a sergeant on the staff of the Royal Pem- brokeshire Artillery Militia, and was also in receipt of a pension in addition to his pay. He received al- together about 28s a week, and tor some time paid 2s a week towards the support of his daughter. The payments were so irregular, that the Secretary of State directed the case to be brought before the magistrates to obtain an order. The Bench ordered the defendant to contribute 2s 6d a week. ASSAULT. James Propert, lamplighter, of Quay Street, was c charged with assaulting George Hughes. This case was settled out of court. ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Saturday, before A. B. Starbuck, Esq, J. D. Roberts, Esq, O. E. Davies, Esq, and the Rev P. Phelps. RIDING ON A CART WITHOUT REINS. William Hooper, farm servant, was charged with driving a cart without reins. The defendant admitted the offence, stating that his mister, Mr gocli, of the Observatory Farm, put the fore horse in the cart, and ho did not know that there was no lir. e to it. The defendant was fined 6d and costs. DETAINING A SOLDIER'S MEDAL. John Bowen, publican, of Hakin, was charged by Lieut. H. G. Webb, of the 36th regiment, with detaining a soldier's medal. The defendant denied the charge. The prosecutor stated that the case had been adjourned from the last sessions for additional evidence, but in consequence of some of the witnesses having left for India, he was unable to do more than to produce testi- mony as to the possessian by the accused of the soldier's medal. P.C. Bradbury deposed that from information he received, he went to the defendant's house, and received the medal produced from the defendant's wife. She told him that Private Home had received 2s 2d. worth of beer on the medal, and asked him to make out a biil to give to the sergeant. He did not see the defendant, and could not say where his wife obtained the medal. The prosecutor said he understood that the wife took the medal out of the defendant's pocket. He could not carry the case further, as the witnesses had left for India. He might state that the principal object was to prevent persons detaining soldier's medals. This was the first time soldiers bad been quartered at Hubberstone Fort, but it was not the first time soldiers had been deprived of their medals. All he desired was that people should know that it was an offence to detain a soldier's medal. The Bench said that the case must be dismissed, owing to the want of evidence to support the charge. The Clerk observed that it was a lucky thing for the defendant his wife was not proceeded against, for the evidence adduced would bring her within the reach of the Act of Parliament. DRUNKENNESS AND RIOTOUS CONDUCT. Mary Howells and Ann Moffatt, (mother and daughter) of Hakin, were charged with drunkenness and riotous conduct. Ann Moffatt admitted the charge; Mary Howells denied it. P.O. Bradbury deposed that his attention was called to the Drang at Hakin, where a large number of people had assembled. Ann Moffatt said that her mother had been there and broken the windows, and she wished to know what she was to do. Presently the mother came up with an open knife, and began to fight with the daughter. He separated them. The Motho stated that she was not drunk, but she witnessed something with respect to her daughter, which excited her, and she broke the windows, and gave her a ['flip.' The windows were hers, not her daughter's, whoso husband was in a madhouse, and she had done all she could to enable her to obtain a livelihood but she bad taken up with soldiers, and on that day did a thing which was so very improper that she could not mention it in Court. The defendants were fined 2s 6d and costs, which in the daughter's case amounted to 10s 5d, and in the mother's case to lis 5d.
COMMUNICATED TO THE "PEMBROKESHIRE HERALD." "Of all scientific or pseudo-scientific men, the most presumptuous and dogmatical are geologists. Yet the uncertainty of their favourite pursuit is notorious. It can hard!y, as yet, with justice be called a science at all. Its votaries are rather collecting than arranging, materials for the construction of what may ultimately deserve such a name. Yet these are the men who presume to call upon us to fling away our belief in a Saviour, and perhapi of a Creator, and our hopes of a happy futurity, in -ilavisb dependence upon their teaching and their dig, coveries. Those who will be so deluded must abide bY the consequences; but that man's religious faith must be weak that geology can overthrow. Of course, blame is not to be imputed to all geologists. And even the error# of their conjectures and calculations wouid be harmless, perhaps, but for the attempts of bad men to avail them* selves of supposed discoveries for the worst of purposes. For it cannot be denied that infidels have of late, in an especial manner, attached themselves to this most perfect of sciences. The animus—the proposed aim— this description of unbelievers is sufficiently evident- They wish to tear the Bible to shreds; to further tW progress of human science is only a secondary object, aDd with some a mere pretext. Concede what you will, they demand more. If we should allege or prove that even all their tenets might be reconciled with the historical books of the Bible, this concession would by no meaDS content them. They would at once make new dernandsi they would search diligently for new difficulties; a01f put their brains to the torture, in the hope of striking something that could not, by any conceivable means reconciled with these sacred narratives. The and yielding tone adopted with them by some christians, does but excite them to extort fresh exactions. The? burn with impatience to prove that there is no God, aoiL that consequently they have no souls. Like Esau, they are eager to sell their birthright of immortality for the enjoyment of the pottage of an inordinate and unfathOma- ble vanity; whilst, in their own way there never waI more superstition or credulitv amongst any class of fflen than amongst scientific infidel's! Certainly, of all cri«#9» the worst, the most widely mischievous, the least e*' cusable, is the atrocity of deliberately irreligious opinions. Incomprehensible is the inclination for this which some men display. Incomprehensible are the folly and conceit and low grovelling ideas of who can imagine nothing higher in the universe than mafli nothing mightier than weakness, nothing purer tb»B corruption. And it should be remembered that into the mysteries and unrevealed acts of omnipote" may be tolerated, and even possibly discoveries permW* (as they were in the case of our mother Eva) being at all approved by God. Some men, boivever, vauntingly set themselves forth as the unravellers of the very mode of creation, or (if they admit not creation?: all as a work of Deity) of the mode in which visible things came into existence. That such discoveries, bovfl ever, should be allowed, appears (if we really believe i" God) to be very unlikely: and if actually made, they wou is probably do no good of any kind to the dwellers on earth, but on the contrary much harm. Hereafter knowledge may be permitted to us freely and profuse. and thus be a source of unspeakable happiness; but It difficult to see how the certainty (if we had it) that befor; Adam, for instance, there existed a race of little with stone axes, could assist the, present generati"n 0 human beings in their struggles through life, or still JeJJ what consolation this could afford for the loss of belo*?; friends, or the support in the hour of dissolution.

The of an omniscient and omnipotent Creator, bound 'M solubly by His own laws, is a gross and P^P8, absurdity. We have no right to say or suppose anything is physically impossible with God; tbat & could not suspend or annul these so-called laws in instant, if it were His will; tbat He may not have do°° so in numberless instances. For even people who the reality of a God and an eternity, are yet so coroplete, unable to comprehend the nature of either, that tbey continually foiget that a thousand years with the Eterna Ruler of the universe are but as a day, and are incapap' of bringing home to their minds the thought tbat eternity extends backwards (as it were) as well as forwards; thft whether this planet be six thousand years old, or si» thousand millions, God existed for ever before it, that in His eyes it is at once old and new. With how finitely less of presumptuous absurdity might the meane insect attempt to fathom the counsels of man, than t&* with which man presumes in imagination to fetter W? Creator and Ruler with immutable laws, as if law coo"1 ever have any existence in force apart from the will of the Lawgiver; the Lawgiver, in this instance, being t absolute Sovereign of the world. Once believe from the heart that there is a God. niscient and omnipotent, and the wonders of creatio will be no difficulty in our way. And again, when believe thus far, the mysteries of Christianity will ee to be a difficulty likewise.
