LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. liTHE SUPPLY OF WATER TO ST. ST. THOMAS GREEN. —A meeting of the inhabitants will be held at the Market Hall on Thursday evening for the purpose of taking into consideration the question of the supply of water to St. Thomas Green. NEYLAND.-On the evening of the 9th inst, the mail steamer, City of Paris, under the command of Captain Fitzmaurice, sailed for a cruise to Madeira and other places, with Mr Talbot. M.P., and family, by whom she has been chartered for the occasion, we understand. Captain Fitamaurice is the commander of Mr Talbot's magnificent steam yacht, Capricorn which vessel, during last summer's cruise, was commanded by Captain R. Aylward, of the Malakoff, mail steamer, in the absence of Capt. Fitzmaurice through illness. PLEDGE AGAINST PEW RENTS -The I Pledge,, which has long been a favourite weapon in the Total Absti- nence and other movements, has at last been applied against pew-rents. The following has been put in circu. lation by the Free Church Society:—'I, the under- signed, believing that any 'charge' for the means of grace, or for the ordinances of Christianity, and any •respect of personsin God^'s House because they pay, or don't pay, is against God's command in Holy Scrip- ture, and unjust to the poor, engage never to pay any pew- tent so long as I continue a member of the Free Church Society.—From the Bath Express, August 4tb, 1866. ACCIDENT ON THE SOUTH WALES RAILWAY.—An alarming accident occurred on Saturday evening to the last down train from Haverfordwest to Neyjand, by which the lives of a number of persons were greaily endangered. The train, which consisted of three carriages, was pro- ceeding at its usual speed by Barnlake, within a short dis- tance of the terminus, when one of the carriages got off tha line, and striking againa the transoms, broke the coupling chain between the engine and carriages. The engine went forward, but the carriages overturned, and fell over the embankment into the mud beneath. The whole of the passengers were greatly alarmed by their sudden descent into the mud, but only one—a lady- received any injuries, and these, we are informed, are not of a serious nature. The depth of mud where the carriages fell is considerable, and some of the passengers made their way out of it with difficulty. Fortunately it was low water at the time the accident occurred, for at the place where the carriages fell the tide rises to a great height, and had it been in at the time, many of the passengers mnst have been drowned. DUNGLEDDY PETTY SESSIONS.—These sessions were hold at Cross Inn on Friday the 17th inst, before J. Miggon.E. T. Massy, and S. Harford, Esqrs; Revds. J. Phillips, and M. Williams. A. P.

James, Mr Thomas Colby, Mr B. Evans, and Mr H. Howell. MANSLAUGHTER. John Phillips, Benjamin Davies, and William Havard, were charged with the manslaughter of Anne John, on the 6th of August. David Thomas deposed: I am a gamekeeper, living at Pencrigian, in the parish of Bayfil. On Monday, the 6tb inst, I saw the three prisoners between 300 and 400 yards from Postgoch, in the parish of Nevern. Each rode a horse, and they were going towards Velindre pretty briskly. I said 'Where are you going, young men?' They said: 'To have a race.' I went a few paces homewards I turned round and saw the three men racing towards me, side by side: they were about 100 yards from me. There was an old woman called Anne John, who lived close by, who was about 50 yards from me oil the same side. She went between a row of stones piled up for measurement in the grip of the hedge, and the hedge itself and stopped there. William Havard and B.'iijirnin Davies passed me galloping: John Phillips's horse had blinds and a cart bridle on. The two first passed the woman, but Phillips's horse when elose to the. pile of stones stumbled against it, and Phillips fell down on the heap of stones and shrieked out: I do not know what he said. I thought he was dead. The horse stag- gered on and struck Anne John on the breast with its chest. The ridge of stones was 11 yards long. The horse went out of its course before it stumbled it struck the end of the ridge, and staggered on between it and the hedge and then struck the woman, who was 70 years of age. She was hurled On for seven or eight yards: I went on and found Phillips holding the woman up in a sitting position. He said 1 wish I were killed myself.' I saw she was dead. I slid' John, I will not flatter you: she is dead.' Blood and water oozed out of her mouth. I wiped it several times: several people came up then. The two other prisoners went on they did not see the accident. The woman was taken home. No one was present but the woman, prisoners, and myself. The prisoners, who declined to say anything, were committed to take their trial at the next assizes on the charge of manslaughter. CHARGE OF STEALING. Elizabeth Williams was charged with stealing some bread and cheese, the property of the Rev Thomas Evans, of Eglwyswrw. The accused denied the charge. The complainant deposed that he was vicar of Eg. lwyswrw, and that the prisoner had lately been in his service as head servant. He never gave her authority to give away anything: and left his service without his knowledge and consent In cross-examination, the complainant denied that he approved of the prisoner giving a poor person bread and cheese. He saw some coming from the house once, and ho spoke about it then. He had never accused the pri- soner of stealing gooseberries. Benjamin Evans deposed that in May last he saw the prisoner give a piece of bread about the size of one's hand und a piece of cheese of the size of the palm of one's hand to a stranger. The master was about the premises, and could have seen it. He was outside the kitchen door with a book in his hand. The prisoner had given him some bread and cheese. He had his food at the house. David Williams, a mason, living on the complainant's land, deposed that he saw the prisoner giving bread and cheese away about May-day last to a tramp: it was a very small bit in comparison with what he gave beggars himself. He had not seen the prisoner give any away at any other time. There were two women, two maid- servants, and one man-servant about the premises, and he believed in the kitchen at the time: the tramp came to the kitchen door. David Phillips deposed to the women and maid-ser- vants being present when the bread and cheese were given away, but that he did not see the complainant. Mary James deposed that she had asked the prisoner at times for bread and cheese, but she declined to give it, as her master was not at home.: This was the evidence for the prosecution. Tfifcprisoner said that the charge had only been brought against her because she had left the complainant's ser- vice. The alleged stealing bad occurred in May—a long time ago, and would not have been heard of if she had remained in the service of complainant, who had pre- viously approved of her giving bread to the poor. Rachel Thomas, called by the prisoner, deposed that she remembered the prisoner telling Mr Evans of her having given a straggler bread and cheese, when he said 'Very good.' She believed it was after May-day. Mr Evans was at the time coming into the kitchen from without. In cross-examination, the witness said she left the complainant's service at the same time as the prisoner, and without notice. The Bench dismissed the case. ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Saturday, before A. B Starbuck, Esq, O. E. Davies, Esq, J. D. Roberts, Esq. J. P. Jones, Esq, S. Harford, Esq, and Rev. P. Phelps. ALLOWING ANIMALS TO STRAY. Benjamin Jones, of Fernhill, was charged with allowing an ass and a pig to stray on the highway. The wife of defendant appeared, and stated that the pig was lying down by her door, and the ass was grazing on a piece of ground on the side of the road. The ass was not on the highway, but near an old ruin not many yards from her house, and adjoining Captain Brady's land. P.O. Furlong deposed that he saw the donkey and pig on the highway. The pig was walking, and the ass, wbich was lonchered, was grazing on the aide of the hedge. He had cautioned the defendant once pre- viously. Tile Bench fined the defendant 61 for eaoh animal, with costs, amounting altogether to 8* 4d. Mr (), E Davies: It I had power I would per-uade my brethren on the Bench to do away with the police fees in these cases. In cases of a donkey and pig straying, ihe fine is quite sufficient. Mr J. P. Jones: The police may then neglect their duty perhaps. Mr Harford: I shall certainly not permit these en- croachments up >n the public wilhout fining the parties. The defendant was allowed a month to pay. Charles Moss was charged with allowing a pony to stray on the highway. The defendant, did not appear. P.O. John deposed that he saw the defendant's pony on the highway Mr 0. E. Davies stated that the pony got o-it of the field through a gap in the hedge. The defendant had a field, and paid for land. The Clerk said that no party appeared in defendant's behalf to answer the charge. Mr O. E. Davies: This is a different case from that where a person sends his cattle out to the hedge side to graze. Here the man has got a field, and the pony got out of it over the hedge into the road. The Clerk I am not saying a word against your state- ment but there is no evidence here of it. The defendant does rn,t appear; no one knows it here you don't know it legally. Mr O. E. Davies: The man is not able to come. The Clerk: Unfortunately for the defendant there is no evidence before the Court: it is a case lor a nominal fine. Mr O. E. Davies: The man has land, and he put the pony on it to graze, and it broke out. The Clerk It is a case for a nominal fine. Mr O. E. Davies: But there are the fine and police fees. The Clerk was understood to say that the Bench could not. repeal the statute, and that they were not there to legislate. A case had been proved under the statute. Mr O. E. Davies: But this is an exceptional case Mr Harford: Some one ought to come forward to prove it: we should know it judicially. Mr J P. Junes: If he can prove it, we can adjourn the case. MrO E. Davies: There is no application for an ad- journment. The Clerk All you have before the Court is that an animal has been found straying on the road; you have no evidence as to how the pony got there, and there is an offence proved. Mr Starbuck: If the case is adjourned there will be more expense. The Clerk Yc3, sir: I am not saying a word against Mr Davies's statement: but what he knows, the <Jourt does not know. Mr O. E. Davies: You will acknowledge there is a difference in this case: it was not turned out to graze. The Clerk: We don't disbelieve you morally; but legally we don't know it. Mr Harford I will not have anything of the kind: if Mr Davies vants to give evidence let him come down and do so. We don't know anything of it. The Bench fined the defendant 6d and coats. ASSAULT. Jane Owen, of Johnston Kilns, was charged with assaulting Maria Llewe lin, of the same place. The detei dant denied the charge. The complainant deposed that the defendant's son passed her door, when she asked him if he had finished the gardens.' The gardens in the neighbourhood had been robbed, and it was commonly repoited that the defendant's son did it. The defendant then came and dragged her to the door and beat her with a broom over the arms. She could not tell how many blows she received, because she was in a trance. [The complainant exhibited her arms, on which there were several bruises.] The defendant said that the complainant slipped and fell, and in the fall inflicted the injuries on herself. Martha Palmer (defendant's sister) deposed that the defendant did not strike the complainant. There were always rows i" Johnston in consequence of the conduct of the complainant and her daughter: she (witness) could get no peace, and 'never saw such a place since she had been born.' The Bench fined the defendant 2s 6d and costs, allowing her a month to pay the money.
T E N B Y. PEMBROKE AND TENBY RAILWAY.—The works upon the extension line to Whitland are now all but completed, and we believe the railway will be opened for passenger traffic about the first of September next. M Company, 95th depot, arrived on Monday week at Penally from Pembroke Dock. under the command of Captain J. M. Crealock, to undergo a course of rifle in. struction, relieving a simitar detachment of recruits, who proceeded to join head-quarters at Pembroke Dock on the same day, under the command of Lieut G. C. Kane, 9th Foot. ST. FLORENCE.—A meeting was held in the schoolroom here on.Monday evening, August 13th, in aid of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. The Rev R. Lewis, of Lampeter Velfrey, organizing secretary, de- livered a very interesting and effective address. A col- lection followed, which, including jgl 4s lOct on a card through Miss F. Adam's amounted to £ 3 6s lOd. COUNTY POLICE—TOWN IIALL, TENBY, TUESDAY, AUGUST 14th.—Before Dr Dyster, H. Sanders, Esq, C. Allen, Esq, and Rev T. H. Dunn.— —— Thomas was charged with wounding Henry Davies, of South Pool, Tenby, with the intent to do him grievous bodily harm. The prisoner is fourteen-the boy stabbed ten. The boys, were at a tea meeting near New Hedges, and it appeared that the younger boy laughed at the elder, who pro- ceeded to attack him with a knife, having previously tried to stab another boy, and inflicted a wound in the loin three inches in depth. As Mr Chater, under who,e care the wounded boy is, could not say that he was out of danger, the case was remanded till Thursday, the 16th, bail in the meantime being refused. TABERNACLE SUNDAY SCHOOL.—The annual treat of this school was given on Monday, the 13th instant. The teachers and scholars, numbering above two hundred, left the chapel at one o'clock, and proceeded in orderly procession to a field near Knightston Gate, beaded by the town band. The day being favourable, games of all sorts, including cricket, football, &c, were pursued until four, the hour for the tea. This over, the games wera resumed, and the field presented a very animating sight full of innocent and pure joy to old and young alike! About six an event occurred which rendered further play impossible. A lad of the name ot Thomas (better known as Canton), whose parents live at New Hedges, stabbed, with a pointed, sharp pocket-knife, another lad of the name of Henry Davies, South Pool, Tenby, in the back, just above the kidneys. The wound is deep, some two inches and more, and is proceeding favourably, though the lad is far from being out of danger as yet. Canton had not been in the field many minutes, and.did not resort to the knite by reason of any attack on him; for all that Davies and others did was to jeer at him a little. It is right to state that neither of the boys belonged to the school, and that they were on the ground without the knowledge of the teachers, and were not allowed to mingle in any of the sports. This remark is made lest r' the shame of this act should be visited on this school, and still more on Sunday schools generally. The exist- ence of such a lad, so ignorant and degraded, so dead to all sense of right and wrong, is very humbling, and should quicken the efforts of all christian labourers in this sore battle with ignorance and sin,— Communicated. SAUNDERSFOOT PETTY SESSIONS, AUGUST 14, 1866.- Before Dr Dyster, Rev T. H. Dunn, Williams, and H. Sanders, Esqrs. ——. Wood was summoned by the police for permitting a house to be in a state unfit for human habitation, alter due notice from the local autho- rities. Ordered to pay costs already incurred, 91 4s lOd, to execute the needful repairs within fourteen days, or to pay 10s per day for every day beyond that time, if such re- pairs are not completed.-Ann Evanssummoned G. Price, the officer of the County Court, for an assault. The de- fendant attempted to remove a heifer, as part of the complainant's property, against which execution had issued by the County Court, and the woman resisted the seizure on the ground that the heifer belonged to her daughter. After hearing the evidence, the Bench was of opinion that the defendant acted bondjide, and used no unnecessary violence to effect the capture. Dismissed with costs.-Sergeant Royle summoned —— Morris for driving a cart with three horses without reins. It was the first offence, and the defendant pleading guilty, he escaped by paying costs, 8s.—James Ormond, of the Windmill Hill, was charged with keeping the wrong side of the road, and refusing to make way for a carriage. Ordered, on pleading guilty, to pay costs, 3s IQd.—Jiichard Morris was charged with being drunk and riotous, and refusing to leave a public house when requested to do so by the polic;. There were numerous previous convictions against him. He was fined 4CK with 9* 6d costs, or two months' imprisonment.—The same defendant was called on to find sureties of the peace towards Ann Lewit, whom lie had threatened and abused on the same occasion. Ordered to find sureties in £111. and to enter into his own recognizances in the sum of £20, to keep the peace for six months
PEMBROKE CONCERT.—On Thursday evening, the 9th inst, Miss, Ribbon gave a musical entertainment at the Town Hall, Pembroke; but we regret to observe that the audience was a very small one. COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were at. the Town Hall on Saturday, before John Adams, Esq. Lewis M >thias, Esq, N. A. Roch, Esq. F. L. Clark. Esq. T. Mansel, Esq, William Hulm, Esq, J. R. Bryant, Esq, and the Revs. John Phelps, and R J. H. Thomas. John Jerniyn, a labourer in the employ of Mr George Bennett, of Beaver's ILII, parish of Manorbier, charged James Russ mt, (alias Dower) a butche's cad, and William Thomas, (a labourer in II.M Dockyard, Pembroke Dock) both of the East End, Pembroke, with having on the 11th inst, at the parish of Manorbier, assaulted and beaten him. Dr. J R. Bryant deposed I reside in Pembroke. The complainant came to me on the evening of the llth inst, about nine p m, to have his nose dressed. I found that a severe blow had been inflicted on it, and an incised wound also there about an inch and a hall long, which looked like a cut with a knife or some o'her sharp instru- ment. It might have been done by falling on some sharp oysier shell or slate. I do not think it could have been done by a blow from a stick or fist: it was a clean cut and blpeding when he came to me. The Bench committed Russant, without the option of a fine, to the House of Correction for 14 days with hard labour, and to pay the costs, 12- 3d; in default, a further imprisonment of 14 days' hard labour; and fined Thomas 2s 6d, and 12s 3d costs, or 14 days in the House of Cor- rection, with hard labour. Fine and costs paid. Ann Hay, was brought up in custody, charged by Mr Charles D'lvies Saer, of Dairy Hays, in the parish of Carew, with having, on the 16th inst,deserted his service. Case settled,-defendant consenting to return to her service. Costs paid by Mr Saer, and ordered to be deducted from defendant's wages. Margaret Hall. of Carew, parish of St. Twynell's» charged Elizabeth Hay, of the same place, with all assault. The Bench were of opinion that there was fault on both side, and dismissed the summons, each party to pay their own costs.
PEMBROKE-DOCK. FATAL ACCIDENT.-On Friday evening week, MrWm. Bonar (proprietor of the omnibus which runs between the Pier Head and the Railway Station, and which he had only recently purchased from the executors of the late Mr J. Bramble), was accidentally killed by falling from off the top of the omnibus, the near hind wheel going over his chest, he never spoke, and died in a few minutes. The 'bus at tho time was passing just io front of Messrs Copeman and Lacy's premises, and it appears that the unfortunate man was getting from the steps behind on to the roof, when he slipped and fell. He leaves a wife and five young children to lament hi, untimely end. There was no inquest held. IRON SHIPBUILDING AT PEMBROKE DOCKYARD.-The Inconstant, now building at Pembroke, WLS designed six months since specially by the Chief Constructor of the Navy as a counterpoise to the class of corvette. building by the Americans. The fact is satisfactory a« proving that the late Board of Admiralty and the Con- troller of the Navy were not unmindful of the protective powers required by the commerce of the country. The Inconstant is to have no armour platintr, will be 33 feet longer than the Bellerophon, with 6 feet less beam, and will have engines of similar power and type to that ship- The following are the principal dimensions of this im- portant class of vessel:- Length between perpendiculars. 333 feet Breadth extreme 50 feet Burden in tons. 3,978 Draught of water forward. 22 feet Ditto alt 24 feet Displacement 5,495 tons Armament ten 124-ton guns, four fij-ton guns. Number of officers and men, 600; coal in bunkers, 600 tons; rig, full ship, with large spread of canvas. will be bheathed below the water line with two thick- nesses of teak and an outer she.ithing of copper, so that she may keep the seas as long as any ordinary woodett ship without fouling. Her estimated speed is fifteen knots. Her designer and engineer both estimate that, with a carrying capacity of 600 tons of coal in her bun- kers and the economical power of working given by her engines, she will be able to maintain a moderate rate of speed over a distance of nearly 10,030 miles. It is said that an unarmoured sloop, of the same class as tbe Inconstant, is to be built at Portsmouth dockyard im- mediately.
MILFORD. GODMANCHESTER —WEDDING —High festival was held on Tuesday, on which day was celebrated the marriage between the Rev. D. G. Thomas, of Heywood, Lanca- shire, and late a curate in this parish, and Miss Ilooll Sophia Beart, second daughter of Robert Beart, Esq. The bride's father is one of the aldermen of the borough. and is agentlernan of whom we of Godmancbester are justly proud. We are conscious of the value of his services as a public man—as a magistrate and a member of the munieipality-and we also know that his genius as an inventor has enabled him to extend the sphere of his usefulness far beyond the limits of our local circle. Of the young lady it may be truly said that her amiable dispoai" tion had endeared her to all sections of the community. Mr Thomas was a popular clergyman during his residence here, and the affectionate interest manifested by the townspeople in the eventful ceremony—although con- veying gratifying tokens of regard-could hardly have been a surprise to the parties concerned. The ceremony was performed in Saint Mary's Church shortly before eleven o'clock. The chancel and altar of the sacied edifice were beautifully decorated with flowers and ferne, and the pathway between the churchyard gate and the south entrance was covered with carpet. The officiating clergymen were the Rev J. Thomas (the father of t^0 bridegroom) and Rev J P. Williams, Vicar of GodmaD" Chester. The bride, who was given away hy the father, was escorted to the altar by eight bridesmaids-The Misses Beart, Howson, Ekin, Williams, Hunnybun (2) Maule (2). The bride wore a rich white silk, and a beautiful Limerick lace veil, with orange blossoms wreath. The bridesmaids wore dresses of white taria" tan (the skirts being trimmed with goffering of the same material, and loops.d at the sides with daisies and .iv1 leaves), tulle veils, and head-dress—combining daisied crystal drops, and miniature ivy leaves. The bridegf00^ was attended by Itev C. W Smith, Messrs W. BeaiV J. Hunnybun, P. Vernon, Geo. Maule, E. Maule, Williams, and the Rev J. Travis. The church was crowded, and amongst those present in the chancel We noticed Rev H. and Mrs Maule, Rev F. and Mrs VernotM Rev G. and Mrs Pmder, Rev — Steele and Mrs Steel » M. Hunnybun, Esq, Mrs Hunnybun, F. Howson and M Howson, Potts Brown, Esq, Messrs W. Maule, F. Beal E. Beart, Mrs Bear!, Mr and MrsEkin, Mrs William-, IV," and Miss Bates, Miss Thomas, Miss Baumgartner, M' Corey, Miss Melluiah, Miss E. Williams. During 1 progress an appropriate hymn was sung, and the Psa chaunted by the choir; on the party leaving the ehur Mendelsshon's 'Wedding March' was effective'y P .s formed by the organist of the church, Mr Eliffer. the bride passed along the churchyard path to carriage, the children belonging to her Sunday ag class cast flowers at her feet. A splendid dejeuner served at Mr Beart's residence, and about three o ci the bride and bridegroom left Godmancbester en r for the Continent.—Cambridge Independent Press, A 11 th 1866.
