LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. GUY'S HOSPITAL.—We are pleased to observe that at the examination of Students at the close of the ses- sion of 1865 and 1866, the Second Senior Scholarship cf £3.5, together with a Certificate cf Honour, was awarded to Mr William John, of Haverfordwest. The examination comprised the whole curriculum of Medical Study. PEMBROKESHIRE ADMINISTRATIVE BATTALION OF V GLUNTEERS.- This battalion will be inspected tn-day, (Wednesday), by Sir E Campbell, district Inspector of Volunteers for South Wales. The various corps vill Eiuster at the Railway Station at half-past one. We trust that the Volunteers will muster strongly, as at- tendance at the annual inspection is necessary in order to entitle them to the Capitation Grant. HAVERFORDWEST RIFLE CORPS.-Col.

Squads of 10 selected aceoiding to priority of attendance on the range will also be formed at 5-30 and 6 30. EMPLOYER AND EMPLOYED.—On the 22nd inst, the clerks in the employ of Mr William Davies, solicitor, Haverfordwest, had their annual fete at Broad-haven. For many years it has been Mr Davies's custom to suspend business for a day sometime in the summer season, and invite the clerks in his employ to spend it vith him at his seaside residence at Broad haven. The day selected this year, though cloudy in the morning, proved to be a most favourable one. Arriving at the Haven at an early hour a long and pleasant day was passed in the prosecution of various games; cricket, r uinders, football, &o, being heartily engaged in. The entertainment provided by Mr Davies was of a most S imptuous character. At nine o'clock, they returned iiome having bad a day's thorough enjoyment. The kindness and generosity displayed by Mr Davies, on this and similar occasions, tend to promote the good feeling and respect which should always exist between the em- ployer and employ ed. CRICKET.—A match was played on Portfield on Wed- nesday and Thursday between eleven of Pembrokeshire and the same number of Cardiganshire, which resulted in an easy victory for the former in one innings. Some fine scores were made on the Pembrokeshire side, as will be seen from the score which we subjoin:— CARDIGANSHIRE. First Innings Second Innings.

Stokes, Esq, Cuffern, gave the children of the above school their annual treat of tea and cake, at his own residence. The weather in the forenoon was rather unsettled, but fortu- nately in the afternoon the sky became eJear. the Run shone gloriously, and the weather proved very propitious as the children, numbering between 60 and 70, marched in procession, under the eu perin ten de nee of their much respected master, Mr W. Griffith?, from the schoolroom towards their centre of attraction, 'singing merrily' as they went along. Having arrived at Cuffern, they had the pleasure this year again of going round to inspect the flower gardens, and after enjoying this to their hearts' content, the bell summoned them from admiring the beauties of flowers to the appreciating of the necessaries which bad been bountifully provided for them. When all had been seated on the green sward of the lawn, the young ladies in attendance diligently distributed the good things, and continued to do so till each of the guests had answered in the negative. Thus were they liberally regaled with tea and cake. After singing seve- ral pieces, which gave thorough satisfaction, their powers were tested in some of the Olympic games. In the first place, with respeot to speed—an umpire having been rhosen and distance set, there followed several good races. tome of the boys proving themselves first-class unners. It was desirable in the next place to prove heir agility and power of motion in the sack, and about i dozen of the most robust having been deposited in the iacks with nothing but their heads in view, commenced their journey, but alas which was never completed by many of them. This caused great merriment among all the spectators, when some unfortunate stripling lost his centre of gravity, and, as is Invariably the case, obeyed the fundamental law of attraction, and consequently became an obstacle to his successor, who reluctantly was obliged to imitate his comrade in his terrestrial expedi- tion, while others proudly reached the goal and received their rewards, and as there were three prizes given in each race, some did a brisk business in a pecuniary point of view. After they had been deprived of their exter- nals they stood out for a scrambling-match, which put an end to their sport for the day. In the meantime the fjiir sex were also delightfully amused, the young ladies taking a lively interest in their proceedings, which con- sisted of such as • I'll send a letter to my love,' and various other games of a similar nature. Several of the most influential ladies and gentlemen of the parish were present. Much credit is due to Mrs and the Misses Lloyd, of Haverfordwest, especially the three young ladies, whose exertions in every respect were indefati- gable and laudable. The children having been assem- bled together, and the national anthem sung, they gave three times three hearty cheers for Miss Stokes, to whom they are extremely indebted for her unwearied attention and praiseworthy efforts on their behalf; after which similar cheers were given for Mr and Mrs S okes, who have always been zealous promoters of everything that tends to secure the enjoyment and hap- piness of the parishioners of Rooh, particularly with respect to the education of youth. May they live to see and enjoy the fruits of their labour by being surrounded with illteIligent people. This school is in a flourishing state, and seems to be ably conducted. ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shite Hall on Saturday, before O. E. Davies, Esq, J. P. Jones, Esq, and the Rev. P. Phelps. ALLOWING ANIMALS TO STRAY. William Davies was charged with allowing six pigs to stray on the highway. The defendant admitted the pigs were on the highway, stating that they bad got out from his fold beneath the gate, which was rather high above the ground. The space was stopped by an axletree, but the pigs, which were small, shoved it aside, and got out. The Bench fined the defendant one penny for each pig, and costs, amounting altogether to 7:3 od. TTSING A CART WITIIOUT A NAME ON IT. John Davies was charged with allowing his cart to be used without having his name printed thereon. The defendant's wife admitted the offence, saying that the name had fallen off. The defendant was fined 6d and costs, amounting altogether to 8s 5d. CHARGE OF FORGERY. Richard Howells was charged by George Griffiths, of St. fsliinael's, with forging a receipt. Toe case was adjourned till next sessions; the accused was admitted to bail in his own surety of £ 20. HAVERFORDWEST PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall, on Wed- nesday, before the Mayor, John Madocks, Esq, J. Mary- church, Esq, and James Bowen, Esq. DRUNKENNESS, &C. Charlotte Dawson, of Merlin's Hill, was charged with drunkenness and riotous conduct on the 17th of August, at Goat-street, in the parish of St. Thomas. The defendant did not appear. P.O. Codd proved the offence, and the defendant was ordered to be imprisoned for seven days and to pay the costs. SALE OF BEER AT IMPROPER HOURS. James Jenkins, landlord of the Plough Inn, Hill-street, was charged with keeping his house open for the sale of beer at illegal hours. The defendant stated that it was quite an accident that his house was open late, and that it hud occurred through the incorrectness of his clock. The door wus open, and there was no attempt at concealment. Supt. Cecil said that this was the first time any charge had been made against the defendant's house, and be would, with the permission of the Bench, withdraw the case on defendant's consenting to pay the costs. The case was withdrawn, the defendant undertaking to pay the costs, THE SANITARY ACT. Mr Thomas Morgan, solicitor, of Bridge-street, was charged by Supt. Cecil with being the owner of a dwell- ing house, occupied by William Richards, at the Hay- guard, Castle Back, on which there existed on the 2nd of August a nuisance. The defendant said that there was no garden to the premises, and there was no other place for the accommo- dation than where it was. The house bad existed in that form for a great number of years, and some time ago he had endeavoured to improve it. A window had been opened, with a view to give the place as much air as possible, but the parties were negligent in cleaning the place, and did not remove the ashes as often as they should do. He had spoken to them, and they bad promised to be more careful for the future. Supt. Cecil deposed that be visited the premises yester- day and the day before. The house was very offensive, and could be smcl) 'd before entering the door. It was occupied by two dIfferent parties: there were two rooms on the same fbor occupied by Mrs Tingle: underneath the front room was a cellar, containing a privy and an offensive ashpit, the effluvia from which went through the boards into the rooms above. That privy belonged to that particular house: but underneath the back room was another privy and ashpit belonging to a house adjoining, all belonging to the defendant, so that there was a privy and ash pit under each room. The defendant had referred to a window being opened, but it would have been much better not to have done so, because it opened out to another ashpit and privy. Be had pointed out this state of things to the defendant previous to commencing these proceedings, and he had promised to meet him about it, but he had never done so. There was plenty of room to erect suitable accommodation by adding a portion of the yard of other places, the property of defendant. There was a large yard belonging to the Wheaten Sheaf, (the de- fendant's property) a portion of which might be set apart for the erection of accommodation for these premises. His attention had been called to it by the Board of Health, and its state was exceedingly offensive. He had served the defendant with a notice on the 15th of June, and he had received another notice since that. Of the first he took no notice, but after the second the defendant came to him about it. There was no drainage to the premises. He had pointed out to him what could be done to remedy the premises; it was. all a question of expense, and he thought. it would amount to a large sum. The defendant asserted that he had done all he could to improve it, and he did not think anything further could be done. Supt. Cecil said that the premises were very offensive: in fact, a worse case he had never seen since he had been in Haverfordwest. Mr Marycburch said that there was no doubt the nuisance must be removed. The defendant declared he should be very glad to improve the place, if he could find out a way of doing so. 1 [f the Bench could suggest anything he would be most thankful. The Clerk said that the whole scope of the new Act was that private advantage must give way to the public health. The act required proper aecominodation to be furnished, for the public health was paramount. The defendant said that he would be happy to do any thing which the Bench on inspection would suggest. Mr Cecil had stated that it couid be altered: but he was a stranger to the place, and having a great number of places to examine, was obliged to do the work hastily. The Clerk said that if the Bench examined the piace, it must not be judicially for they might be called upon to try the question, whether the alterations after they were done, were really sufficient, and in that case they would be prejudging the question. Mr Bowen said that lie would consent to the case being adjourned, if Mr Morgan would undertake to remove the nuisances. Defendant: I realiy do not know what I can do to make matters better than they are. The Clerk: There is no doubt about one thing: you will have to remove those things from under the house. Defendant: I can't do it. The Clerk: Then you must shut them up. Defendant: That I must do then. The Clerk: The health of the public is before private profit, and if proper accommodation cannot be provided, the bouses must be closed. Ultimately, the case was adjourned for a fortnight, the defendant undertaking to remove the nuisafices. Mr Cecil, in answer to the Bench, said there were three other cases against the defendant. Mr Bowen suggested that those cases should also be adjourned, on the same understanding as in the former case. The defendant declined to give any undertaking with respect to the other cases, asserting that nothing could be done to improve the dwellings. The defendant was then charged with being the owner of a house occupied by William Griffiths, on which there was no privy accommodation. Supt. Cecil deposed that the house was occupied by a Mrs Powell and her daughter, but he believed the tenant was William Griffiths. There was an ashpit close under- neath the back door, and no one could cross the yard without going over the ashpit. There was no accommo- dation, and the drainage was insufficient. There was a woman in the house who had been for some time bed- ridden. The defendant said that there was no privy there, because it would be injurious, but the place was perfectly clean. Supt. Cecil said that the premises belonged to de- fendant, and that the place could be improved by extending the yard. The Bench made an order directing the defendant to provide proper accommodation. The defendant was then charged with being the owner of two houses in North-street, to which there was no privy accommodation or drainage. Supt. Cecil deposed that the houses had no privy, and there was no drainage. The state in which they were in was, in his opinion, injurious to health, and his attention had been cal!ed to it by the Visiting Committee. The houses consisted of a room upstairs, and one down: the back wall was very damp, because the ground at the back was higher. There was insufficient ventilation. The human soil was kept in a place by the ifre, because there was no proper accommodation. The defendant said it was impossible to do anything to make things better. lie was its anxious to promote the health of the town as any on the Bench were, and he had done all be could in ali cases where he was concerned to make his tenants comfortable: but the very nature of the building, in these cases prevented him doing anything. He must close them up, and sustain the loss. The Bench made an order on the defendant, directing him to provide privy accommodation. ALE HOUSE LICENSES. The usual licenses were granted to the innkeepers in the town. A license was granted to Mr Joseph Freeman, for the house on Tower Hill, known as the Black Bear.
TENBY. AMATEUR THEATRICALS. For some time past we have been expecting the Tenby Amateur H'Strionie Company to give a dramatic enter- tainment. One of the great obstacles in their way was the want of ladies to fill the female characters. Now, however, the very excellent corps performing for a short season at the Royal Assembly Rooms has afforded them the necessary assistance, consequently they availed them- selves of the opportunity, and on Wednesday, the 22nd inst., came before, the public in Douglas Jerrold's drama of 'The Rent Day,' and the farce of 'Turn him oaL' At an early hour almost every seat in the house was taken, and one of the most numerous, select, and eagerly expectant audiences we h,we ever seen in Tenby, were assembled together. As we have before remarked, many s e of the audience attended to seejjwhat sort of animals amateurs are; some to see how their friends Jones, Brown, and Robinson, will 'come out,' and, alas, for poor human nature, some carte to witness a grand smash, break down, and total failure, or to see the aforesaid Brown, Jones, and Robinson, • making a mess of if.' The audience, too, affect a sort of sleeping part- nership with the amateurs; they are more ot the flesh and blood realities of life than professional players—tan- gible things that you can lay your hand on and say, this is Brown, or Jones i if successful, the audience at once c!aim (on the strength of the partnership just hinted at) part of the honours of victory, for were not the laurels gained by cne of us; if, on the contrary, the affair is a failure, the audience is always ready to accord the sym- pathy always doled out to unsuccessful friends,1 and the remark follows so naturally, so easily—'What could have induced thrown to make such a fool of himseli?' How could Jones have expected to succeed, everyone knows what a numbskull he is?' Now, we believe that these were some of the feelings and motives which drew together the audience of Wednesday last. Friendship and curiosity: how much of the one, and how much of the other, eh fidus Achates? We will not be ill- natured enough to hint at the proportion that the bread bore to the sack in Fals'aff's celebrated hotel bill; but giving the audience'credit for the best intentions, we will turn our attention to the performers. The following is the cast of the 'Rent Day:' Grantley (a rich Squire) Mr R. W. Evans Old Crumbs (Steward to Grantley) Capt W. Rees Martin Hey wood (a farmer) with a song. Mr Gregory Tohy Heywood (she village Schoolmaster).. Mr F. Jones Bullfrog (Auctioneer"and|Appraiser)..Mr T. H. Thomas }: £ ',J £ s; Beanstalk (a Farmer) Mr G. Morris Stephen (a servant) Mr W. M. Walkinton Rachel Hey wood Miss Marie Henderson Polly Briggs Miss Lucy Raymond Second Farmer, and Sailor .Mr H GJode Mr J. Gray was originally cast for Silver Jack, but through serious illness in the family was obliged to re- linquish the part. The cast as performed on Wednesday night was un- usually strong tor amateurs. Mr R. W. Evans made an excelleut 'Grantley,' there was perhapsalittie too much stiffness and want of energy at times, but as a whole the part was well played. Capt W. Rees, as Old Crumbs,' was admirable; his last scene with the Squire, when he Guda that his designs are useless, and that his past his- tory is known, was well worked up. Mr Gregory, as Martin Haywood,' was reality itself, without rant, but with a pathetic earnestness of declamation. Mr Gregory carried his audience with him by the simple truthfulness with which he invested the character assigned to him; in the scenes with his ruined children, his (what he believed to be) faithless wife, were gone through with great effect, and his song, I Mary of was re- ceived with tremendous applause. 'TobyHeywood was well represented for the nonce by a professional, Mr Cameron. As our remarks are peculiarly directed to amateurs, we will make no further mention of the part. The part of 'Bullfrog' (auctioneer and appraiser) was admirably performed by Mr T. H. Thomas. Mr Thomas possesses graat natural comio powers, and on this occasion he fully sustained the good opinion we have of his capabilities. The bon vivant Bullfrog,' who though drunk from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet, had still an eye for business, was very well done, and it was with great judgmentthat he continually presented the amusing phase of inebriety to the audience —a task by no means easy. Silver Jack,' and 4 Hyssop,' were well sustained by Messrs T. Rees and J. Leach. The make-up of these two I gents of the road was admirable. Mr Leach made as much of his part as he could, which is a good deal to say, considering that 'Hyssop' is quite subordinate to Stiver Jack. Mr T. Rees, as the latter, was very neat in his temptation of 'Rachel Heywood,' a very good bit of acting indeed. Mr G. Morris, as 'Beanstalk,' a farmer, was remark- ably good—one of those old sons of the soil who follow Old Richard's maxim, 'He who by the plough would thrive must either lead hnasetfor drive.' Mr W. M. Walkinton was first rate as" Stepheii,' a servant, going through it I as to the manner born,- nothing could be more natural. Mr H. Goode, as second Farmer and Sailor, did the parts assigned to him with great tact, and we think he would do well in more important parts. The parts of Heywood's children were well sustained by Mr J. Gray's two sons: the little fellows behaved as if they had donned the sock and buskin from the cradle. Of Miss Marie Henderson and Miss Lucy Raymond we will but say that the former made a sweet Rachel Hey wood,' and the latter a very piquant I Polly Briggs.' We know our friends the amateurs will not think us unfriendly in what we are going to say:—It seemed to us that occasionally we observed a little too much stamping or moving about of the feet, more action in fact than the occasion demanded. As an example, we do not think that as a rule highwaymen, when about plotting the robbery and murder of any one, make use of much action; happily we do not speak from experience, and may therefore be wrong, But as a rule every action j that is not required by the actual necessities of the situa- tion is an action too much—a work oi supererogation in fact: a thing we are enjoined ought not to be done. Martin Heywood, Bullfrog, and Beanstalk, are to be excepted from the remarks we have just made the great source of the evil we have just mentioned is ø desire to avoid 'stickiness' and priggishness' on the stige.. The whole concluded with the laughable farce Of 4 Turn him out.' Nicodemus Nobbs (an itinerant vendor of juvenile toys) was an excellent performance, Mr T. H. Thomas adding fresh laurels to those already sained—intense humour, action the most amusing and well sustained, caused his appearance to be greeted with roars ot laughter. Capt W. Rees, as Mr Mackington Moke, was a sur- prising piece of fun, and very pleasing it was to see the heartiness with which he entered into the humour of the situation. Of Mr W. M. Walkinton, as the exquisite Mr Eglan* tine Roseleaf we cannot say so much in praise as in his last character; in fact it is not a part that seems to suit him at all. Mias Marie Henderson, as Julia,' and Miss L. Raymond, as 'Susan,' were very good. Mr H* Goode tigain acted a small part very well. We think 'Eglantine Roseieaf would have suited him well. it remains but for us to add that the make-up of the cha- racters was exeelleut-nothing could be better. Every one was delighted with the performance, and, to the credit of the amateurs be it said, there was not the slightest approach to a titter or giggle on the stage, but everything was conducted in sober earnestness. We hope our friends will take what we have said, not as if written in a carping spirit, but as it really has been done to stimulate them to still further improve and regu- late the very respectable natural talents they possess.
NAEBEETH. SCHOOL TREAT.—On Wednesday, the loth inst., the children of the National School, Cwmfelin, in the of Llangan, met the. children of Eglwysfair Glantaft Sunday School, and their much beloved incumbent, the Rev E. Rowland, between the above named places. Ahout one o'clock they formed in procession, carrying banners with appropriate mottoes, which had been taste* fully made by Mrs Rowland. They proceeded on their march singing airs, and passing through Whitlaud, arrived at Llwynybrain, the residence of the rev. incuffl* bent, where, in a field adjoining the house, they the tables plentifully spread with good things, shoW^S that no pains or expense had been spared to add to comfort and pleasures of the parties. The day proved very favourable. There were present, the Rev Mr Row' land, Mrs Rowland, the Rev S. Jones, vicar of LIar.. gunner, Miss Nortbey, of Waungron, Miss Colwelb Miss Webb, of Great Pale, Mr Dullaston, and Mr Parryt the chapel-warden, who, with the children, after doioff ample justice to the excellent spread of the worthy ¡n- cumbent and his good lady, joined in innocent sportS. The fete concluded with the national anthem, when they walked in order to the lawn, and were again treated with unbounded hospitality, after which all left for tbel respective homes, without anything having occurred to mar the pleasures of the day. It is but a duty we dis* charge in acknowledging the great interest the Rev Ml and Mrs Rowland take in the religious and moral traIn. ing cf the young. May they long live to promote the Welfare of the inhabitants of the district.
CORRESPONDENCE. We do not consider ourselves responsible for lite opinions and sentiments of our Correspondents MR EDITOR. — Having observed hy placards posted in different parts of the town in the early part of last week, that a public meeting of the inhabitants of the parish Of Saint Thomas, was to be heid in the Market Mall Oil Thursday evening to take into consideration the defective supply of water for that part of the town, and to adopt means in order to carry out the desired object, I among many of the humbler classes of our parish, attended that meeting, and was greatly surprised to find that those whose weight and influence in the parish would have furthered the ohjacts of the meeting, were conspicuous by their absence, and had it not been for the kind attend- anee of a few gentlemen who are not parishioners, the meeting would have proved a failure, and the whole matter fallen to the ground. Now, Mr Editor, I ask you whether this speaks well for the sympathy of the upper classes toward those of their humbler parishioners- It was but reasonable to expect that those gentlemen who were appointed the Visiting Committee at the Sanitary Meeting would haveattended in order to supp0' their own suggestions for the improvement of the beal<^ in their parish. But, sir this is only a repetition of tjj apathetic manner in which public meetings are con* ducted in Haverfordwest. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, ONE WHO ATTENDED THE MEETING*
