CARMARTHEN. CARMARTHEN COUNTY CO'JRT. The July County Court was held on Mondav last, at half-past one p.m., at the Shire Hall. before II. R. Bag- 1 shawe, Esq, Q.C., Judge. I WM. HARRIES V. W. DAVIES AND W. LLRWELLYN. 1 Mr Snead appeared for the plaintiff. This was an ( action to recover l'2s, the value ot a whip which plaintifl alleges defendants had taken from the commercial room of the Salutation Hotel, at Haverfordwest. Defendants pleaded no jurisdiction, as the cause of action arose at Haverfordwest. 1 Mr Snead said that the defendants living in Carmar- < then, the court had ample jurisdiction. ( The Judge overruled the objection. 1 Defendant: I consulted with an eminent lawyer this morning, and he said the court had no jurisdieiou. j The Judge: Then you had better have brought your eminent lawyer with you. (Laughter.) Defendant said that another objection was that plaintiff ought to sue the landlord of the hotel to recover his whip, as he was responsible for all things left in his house. Judge ? Then the landlord would sue you- Defendant: That would be the propyl course. Judge What sort of a whip was it? Mr Snead: A driving whir. Judge: Is it one likely to be used for driving donkeys? Davies; I think, considering the whip belongs to plaintiff, your Honour would tiy so. (Loud laughter.) Mr Snead, in explaining the case, said the defendant Llewellyn, who is the traveller of the defendant Davies. had taken the whip, as would be proved by Morgan, the boots of the hotel. Some time afterwards, plaintiff asked defendant Davies for his whip or its v4ue, and Davies replied by asking why he did not bring up his whip from Haverfordwest, to which plainiff said I It was a broken one without a lash.' His Honour interrupted Mr Snead, and asked him if he could prove that Llewellyn took the whip. Mr Snpad said he would not go so far as that; there were only two whips in the room, and when Llewellyn left, the only one remaining was the broken one. His Honour said that Mr Davies was not liable for the action. Alter a deal of discussion, Mr Snead requested to call his witnesses, and his Honour suggested its being ar- langed out of court. Mr SlIead said his client had times out of number tried to effect a settlement, but had failed. He then called Mr W. Harries, who said: I am a commercial traveller, residing at Carmarthen. Ou the 15th September, I drove to the Salutation Hotel, Haverfordwest. Went and placed my whip in the commercial-room. I left that evening for Tenby. I did not see either ot the defendants on the 15th. On the 17th I returned, and the whip was then there. Neither of the defendants were there; bu: other commercial men were there. J did not oh^prve any whip but mine in the room. 011 Tuesday, 18th, 1 saw ddendant Llewellyn at breakfast. I don't think he had a whip; but there was another one in the room. On the 18th 1 went to Pembroke Dock and left the whip behind. I returned on the 19th, and the whip was gone. I auade enquiries of the boots, and asked him whero my whip was. He pointed to the other whip. I said that was not mine. lie said' Tllen Mr Llewellyn must have taken it, as there were only two in the room.' I refused to take it. Shortly after that I saw Mr Davies. ] called at his office in Queen-street. f told him of the mistake which had been made, and from what I had heard that Llewellyn had taken it away. I claimed the return of the whip or 12s, its value. Davies said be knew nothing about it; but asked why I did not bring on the whip which Llewellyn bad left behind. Judge: What evidence is all this. Can it apply to Mr Davies, if Llewellyn took the whip. It is not evidence against either of the defendants upon the nonsensical question of whips. Examination continued: I spoke to Llewellyn a few days afterwards, and told him of the mistake he had made. He said Draw it mild, don't charge me too much tor it.' (Laughter.) I named 12s. He did not pay me, and he made no answer. Mr Davies was about to cross examine witness when the Judb,e stopped him and said there was no evidence against him. Mr Davies to plaintiff: Well my friend, I am very sorry for your sake. Cross-examined by Llewellyn I did not call and ask I you to pay for the whip. Is»wy<m in Q leen-street. I said I had explained the matter to Mr Davies. IlIskerl you to pay for the whip. (Defendant 'You didn't.') (Plaintiff, 'I did.) I to:d you 1 hat I would make Davies to pay for the whip. There were onty two whips in the room. I have not seen any whip with you, but if you produce it I can swear to my whip. William Morgan examined by Mr. Snead: In Septem- ber last I was buots at the Salutation II ite!, Haverford- west. I remember plaintiff being there. Defendant Llewellyn was not there then, but during the time Harries was there I saw defendant: They both had driving whips. Thiy were the only two travellers with horses and traps there. They left their whips in the commercial-room. I remember when Harries went away: he sent me for his whip; I brought out Air Llewellyn's whip as it was the only one there. Harries said it was not his whip. The Judge Then you did a very wrong thing; you had no business to take out Mr Llewellyn'r whip to show it to Mr Harries. Cross-examined by Defendant: I did not see you take a whip away. Mr. Snead: The only reason why he took out the whip was because the other was taken. Tie Judge Infinite mischief might have arisen from that simple circumstance. Witneas: I only brought it out to him to show it. Mr R. W. Richards was sworn and said the only thing I know is that Harries told Davies he lost a whip (Laughter.) The Judge: We have heard that several times; Mr Snead: Well I won't examine the witness. The Judge There is not a particle of evidence against Davies and I therefore give him judgment with costs. As regards Llewellyn the only question is the expression Draw it mild, don't over charge me." John Llewellyn sworn said. When I met Harries he told me I had exchanged his whip at Haverfordwest and he would make Mr Davies pay 12s. for it. I never said Draw it mild," nor anything of the sort. Cross-examined by Mr Snead: I am defendant's traveller. I was at the Salutation Hotel at the time Mr Harries was there. I had a driving whip which I believe was taken into the commercial-room by the boots. There were other whips there. When I left I found a whip in the trap. It was Mr Davies's whip I had used it for several weeks and I conscientiously believe it was my whip. Mr. Davies was in Haverfordwest at the Queen's Hotel. I met Mr Davies afterwards at Cardigan. During the time we were together we did not find out it was not our whip. We do not know it now. The whip is in town and I am using it daily. It is the same as the one I took to the Salutation. I know nothing of Harries'a whip. The Judge The very essence of this action is that the whip should be in esse. Cross-examination continued: Harries never asked me to pay for the whip in Queen-street. The Judge: The mllst simple thing would have been to sue the landlord. I'll give you a non-suit if you like, but being oath against oath, I really cannot decide the question. Plaintiff accepted a non-suit as against Llewellyn and His Honour gave judgment for the defendant Davies with costs. The court shortly afterwards rose.
THE WIMBLEDON REVIEW. The review on Saturday at Wimbledon, which ter- minated the Volunteer campaign of 1867, furnished a most brilliant military spectacle, and the number of visi- tors of every rank and class was beyond all precedent. The Sultan, riding a splendid white charger, was 4 the observed of all observers, who were able to get near enough to see anything; and amongst the other illus- trious personages present were the Prince 01 Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Prince and Princess Tock, and the Duke of Aosta. The evening closed in with heavy rain, to the great discom- fort and annoyance of many thousands who did not reach home, drenched and weary, before midnight. The Sul- tan was entertained at dinner by Earl Spencer, the pre- J' sident of the Volunteer Association, in a magnificent tent set up near the grounds of the noble earl'.¡ cottage, which is situated on the Wimbledon-common. <
DEPARTURE OF THE BELGIANS. The Belgians have left us, thoroughly charmed with iheir visit. On Monday at a very pleasant little dejeuner, Colonel Gregoire was good enough to say that the recep- tion of those whom he commanded had exceeded all the mticipations of his countrymen. They had always en- tertained a profound respect for England and her insti- ;utions but the noble hospitality and enthusiastic wel- jome which the riflemen had experienced from all classes ,n the British metropolis would strengthen still more the :ies between the two countries. There waa no language which could adequately express what he and those whom ie commanded felt. He believed that in the history of :he world there was no precedent for a similar reception if one people by another, and he could not but regard :he circumstance a3 one in every way important, not )nly for Belgium, but for all nations. This only shews low much hearty good-will on the part of hosts and zuests has been ahlo to do to neutralise the constant blunders perpetrated by one of the most obstructive com- mittees ever charged with the management of business. Some of the volunteers took their departure on Monday. Tho-io who did not occupied the day in visiting places of j interest in the neighbourhood of the metropolis, and as- f ^ernhled at ten o'clock this morning in the quadrangle )f Somerset House. From thia place they marched to the water stairs of the House of Commons. The whole way was densely packed with spectators, and nearly svery house displaced the Belgian colours many shops in addition were decorated with mottoes kindly designed, if not artistically executed. Messrs' Burgess and Son. forgetting their sauce to manifest their politeness, did the thing very neatly, by adorning the facade of their warehouse with the words Au revoir,' in white letters on a pink ground. Nothing could have exceeded the heartiness with whicS: the Belgians were cheered from every lamp post, every window, and, every corner of the streets, except it were the vigour with which the greet- ing was returned. Thank goodness, the wretched wea- ther we have lately experienced appears to have affected nobody's lungs. At Westminster a huge crowd had assea-bled, which watched with great interest the lengthy process of embarkation. The Thames Embankment afforded a capital place for a view, and was at once he- siollod by those who could find no standing room on the bridge. The members' walk of the Houses of Parlia- ment was occupied by a number of ladies. The river steamers came up to the s-airs one after another, and as soon as they were filled moved off below the bridge. When the last had received its freight the six vessels got up steam, and with flags flying, wherever fliits could be placed, and amidst a thunder of cheers, with hand- kerchiefs waving and bells ringing and bands playing, moved in pr icessioa down the river to Gravesend, where the Serapis was waiting to receive the Belgians. Here the final adieus were spoken, and the great troop-ship turned her head to Antwerp, the c imtnittee and friends who had accompanied them so far saying, in the name of all Englishmen, to our gallant guests, Messieurs bon voyage! THE NAVAL REVIEW AT SPITHEAD. The following communication is from a London Con- temporary — Sm,—I have been expecting to see in your paper some communications addressed to you on the interesting question as to how far the thunder of the guns at the naval review on Wednesday last was heard over the country. At 12.20 p.m., although there was a strong «ale blowing at the time in a transverse direction, i e. from S.W. to N.E incredible as it may appear to some of your readers, I distinctly heard at my house, which is situated about four miles in a north-westerly direc- tion from the town of Cardiff, in South Wales, the C, booming of the artillery at Portsmouth so loud, indeed, was the tumbling sensation of sound as it rolled over us in is onward course, that peacocks in the village, ac- cording to the well-known habit of the bird, were pro- voked to scream at it, and I found on subsequent in- quiry that several of the villagers likewise heard it, but were quite at a loss to account for it. Again, at 9.12 p.m. I was one of a party of seven who all dearly heard the "Royal salute which was fired at that time. Cum- puting the average velocity with which sounds travels at 12;} miles per minute, and the direct distance from my house to Portsmouth to be 115 miles, the report of the firing would have taken just nine minutes to travel here, and when this time is deducted from that at which I observed the booming sounds referred to, the remainder will precisely accord with the time at which you an- nounce in your columns the nooa and evening salutes to have taken place. As the waves of sound were roiling onward with so much force as they passed over this district, I have no doubt that they continued unspent for many miles fur- ther, and perhaps some of your readers may be able to report of their having been heard in localities far more remote from the place where they were belched forth with such prodigious power than has been done by your obedient servant, WM. DAVID, St. Fagan's Rectory, July 19,' Sm, -As it is commonly reported in these parts that the cannonading at the battle of Waterloo was heard from the top of the Graig-bill, six miles from Mon- mouth, you may not think it incredible when I assert that my wife and I should have here distinctly heard the firing at Spithead on Wednesday last, which lasted, by our time, from 2.35 p.m. to 2.50 p.m., and which so nearly corresponds with the account in your publication of Thursday. I imagine the distance from Portsmouth to this place to be over ICO miles as the crow flies. Apologising for thus taking up your valuable space, I am, Sir, your obedient servant, 4 C.

Troubles among tHE Mokmons—The Salt Lake Videtteoi Juno 15 says:—' On Suuday afternoon Urighain Young preached a lengthy sermon, boldly and openly announcing that Amtlra Lyman, Orson Hyde, and Orson Pratt had apostatized, and were cut off from the Church. Orson Hyde had been chosen President of the Twelve Apostles laH April. Pratt is one of the twelve, and Lyman had been one of the apostles also. Young was severe on Hyde, but particularly so on Pratt. He denounced the latter as an unbeliever, and as now in possession of the devil.' A correspnodeut of the New York Tribune, writinu from Salt Lake City on June 18 says: —'There are palatable signs of dissolution in the Mormon Church. The Josephites (the followers of Smith) pronounce polygamy a sin, and they claim to he the true Mormon Church and entitled to the Church property. When Brigham was south this spring behind to cut off sevet al hundred mem hers (or heresy because they adhered to Smith, and over 100 waggons 01 emigrants are now in the mountains on their way east to escape his tearful vengeance. The MorrUitns are another class of dissenters, and have no fellowship with the Salt Lake Church. They denounce polygamy, and are constantly receiving acquisitions to their numbers. They have a strong settlement in Utah, at Soda Springs, under the vt-ry shadow of the Prophet. Every sermon I heard from the Mormons betrayed nervous fears as to divisions; some appealed, some uofoided the duty of submission, and Brigham thundered his tierce anathemas against the faith- less. Gentile dealings and associations are forbidden, because Mormonism cannot bear contact with virtue and truth, nor can its crowning crime of polygamy bear con- tact even with vice. Virtue and vict. are alike its foes, and equally fatal to its perpetuity. Thus is the Mor- monism of foung beset by schisms, perilled by growing intercourse with gentiles, and soon the Pacific railroad will pour thousands of population into all the fruitful valleys Of the West, and in but a few years the distinctive- ness of this people mast fade away.' -4
NAVAL REVIEW AT SPITHEAD. The squally character of the weather on Wednesday detracted greatly from the anticipated majesty tlnd grand- ewr of the Naval Review at Spithead. A heavy and rough sea set in from the Needles, with a strong south-westerly breeze, and outside the Isle of Wight it reached that condition described by sea-shore folk as a 4 good half gale.' Instead of the manosuvres showing the surprising skill and dexterity with which our sailors manage the vast structures they man, the result was that the Queex, with the SULTAN, who had gone to join her in Cowas Roads, simply inspected the two lines of iron-clad and wooden three-deckers and then, after a lengthened de- lay, waiting for the weather to moderate, returned to Osborne. If, however, the review was a failnre, owirg to causes over which it was impossible to have any con- trol, the inspection furnished a magnificent sight, and the spectacle, in many respects, lost harcly anything—if, indeed, it did not gRin- by the roughness of the weather. The saluting was splendid, and when the two lines en- gaged at anchor, and the gun boats attacked the sbore forts, which replied with great vigour, the picture was- most impressive, and one which will linger long in the memories of those who saw it. The spectators were numbered by tens of thousands, to whom the weather- was a great source of discomfort. COMMUNICATION BETWEEN WEXFORD AND ,SOUL'H WVLES. CFrom the Wexford Constitution). WE are glad to find that this subject, which we have so frequently urged upon the notice of the public, ensraired the serious attention of the Grand Jury on Wednesday. It was brought forward by Mr LeHunte, who, after explaining the nature of the project, proposed thnt a memorial should be sent by their body, signed bv the Foreman, to the Lord Lieutenant, seeking his Excellency's co- operation, and that a committee be appointed for the purpose of furthering the scheme. Both t'hesci propositions were passed unanimously, the Grand Jury appearing to take great interest in the sub- ject, and to be desirous to see the project success- fully carried out. In our article on the subject, oa. Wednesday, we stated that we ought not to seek* and could not expect, any other aid from Govern- ment, in the meantime, that a loan of such sum of money as might be required to construct the pro- posed harbour in the South Bay, and we are glad to find that the grand Jury do not go beyond that in their memorial. If we have confidence in the suc- cess of the project, we must demonstrate it by executing the necessary railway works, from pri- vate resources, in the usual way. The names of the gentlemen appointed on the committee form a guarantee that everything that can he done b)' individuals and by companies to put tlle contem- plated new barbour in railway communication with the north and west of Ireland will be effected. On. the other side. the railway system of England is completed to within a very few miles of the Bay of Fishguard and, indeed, the construction of the 71 remaining portion of the lines is only in abeyance until the lines on the Irish side are in an advanced state. We trust that the requisite works on this side of the channel will be speedily put into opera- tion, and to see. within two or three years, the successful completion of the project, and of a fleet first-class steam vessels plying between Rosslare cl and the port of Fishguard. Now that this subject is exciting so much in- terest, it would be a great advantage to the people of Wexford and the district, if an opportunity were afforded them of visiting that town with which it is probable they will, before long, be intimately connected. We would like to sail across the pro- posed highway, and personally inspect and inquire into the capabilities of the Bay of Fishguard. The Dodder would be an excellent boat to make the passage in, and we believe that Mr Pitt, the agent, would be glad to put her on Lr an experimental trip. If he arranged to do so. ne are sure that a large number of gentlemen interested in the scheme would be happy to avail themselves of the privi- lege of making the voyage. An excursion of this sort would also create additional interest in the project, and as that is a great desideratum, we trust that arrangements may be made for making the trip.
