It is far superior Pared f there is no harbour in England to be Port T -'■n ear^ times it used to be the aiently emljarkation to Ireland, being alike con- tLUbK Cn^tUate,d Jor communication by sea with 'f^Uer placed but e3Pecially with the Sir& ?^°ce t of this Haven were obvious J»J WQJ RR° -Lord Nelson, when on a visit to his friend, PQ4* Admiral ton' then proprietor ot Milford. The the ar>ef.predsed the opinion that it was the only J in OA1! • WE8* COA8T FROM which it would be r aiQ states of the wind, to meet French ships sailing from Brest and Rochefort. i?'or such are the facilities which it affords for egress, that vessels can sail out of the Haven with a wind from every point d the compass but six. And even when the wind fails the vessel in the harbour, she is thrown fairly out to sea by the great strength of the tide alone; having, moreover, the advantage of two channels, one on either hand -the Bristol and St. George's—thereby ensuring an offing should it be found necessary to haul off the land. The entrance to this splendid harbour bears nearly south-west, and is of the width- of about two miles. Inside the entrance, the Haven runs inland nearly due west for about twelve miles, with a breadth of from one to two miles, and comes completely land ticked, affording throughout its ample space excellent holding ground, as well as abundant shelter from storms. The Haven is easily accessible at all times by night and by day, and in all states of the tide. As the depth of water is very great, from 15 to 19 fathoms in most parts at low water a veesel may safely run in without the help of a pilot Such, indeed, are its natural conveniences as a harbour of refuge, that sometimes as many as 500 sails are to be seen in it, windbound, unable to beat up the St. George's ¡ or the Bristol Channels, or to put out to sea in the face of south-easterly gales. As regards, therefore, facility of ingress and egress, absence of danger, space, depth of water, and shelter, Milford Haven unquestionably pos- sesses all the requisites of a first-rate port. Possessing these great natural advantages—being the nearest port to all the south of Ireland, as well as the nearest port in England to America and the West Indies, situated at the entrance to the Bristol Channel and the Irish Sea, and being the same distance from London, to within a few mile- that Liverpool is—the wonder is. that Milford Haven should not, by this time, have be come one of the great centres of British maritime com- merce. The reasons why this is not yet the case, are, we apprehend, to be found in the circumstance that Milford has, until within the last few years, been to a great extent shut out from railway communication with the rest of England and, in the next place, because the Admiralty Commissioners have strenously opposed the establishment of large docks above Pembroke, having regard to the facility of access to their ¡\reat shipbuilding establishment situated near the upper end of the Haven. These disadvantages are, however, now in gradual cmrse of removal; and it therefore seems probable that, before the lapse of many years, the great fadlities of Milford Haven will at length become utilised, and that more than one thriving seaport mav be found springing up and flourishing, as Swansea, Newport, and Cardiff have done elsewhere, along the borders of this magni- ficent estuary. Indeed, Millord is already placed in direct communication with the coal and mineral districts of South Wales by means of the South Wales Railway and its branches. By the same medium it is also con- nected with London and the South of England, and the entire broad gauge system of the Great Western Railway. But another important connection, not yet complete, is now in progress, by means of which Milford will be c' brought into direct railway communication with Liver- pool, Manchester, and the great manufaci uring districts of the North-west of England. This most valuable con- nection will be provided by the Central Wales Railway, with a few junction lines easy of construction, all that is now required to complete the through connection with Milford being a link of about ten miles between Llandovery and Llanwrtyd. In anticipation of the opening up of this important communication, as well as to supply a want long felt in the neighbourhood, the Milford Haven Dock and Rail- way Company are now pushing on their works with the view of completing their long promised coal-loading stage at old Milford, as to have it ready for traffic it possible in the course of the ensuing spring. The want of such a coaling place at Millord has long been felt. The only convenience at present provided for the coal- ing of posing steamers is a small hulk moored opposite Milford for their special use but there is no general depot in the Haven far the regular supply of steamers Though the South Wales coaifi dd extends into the im- mediate neighbouthood of Milford, vessels bound to j Cardiff for cargoes of coal, and unable to beat up chan- Del against contrary winds, are oLtm compelled to lie idle in the Haven until the wind has changed, instead of taking in their cargoes there at once and proceeding oil their voyage. The provison of the coaling stage under construction by the Milford Haven Dock and Railway Company at Milford will thus form a great public convenience, while at the same time, we cannot entertain a doubt that it will answer the purpose of its promoters. From the geographical position of Milford Haven," wri'es a Liverpool correspondent, "its lino harbour, and low port charges, (a first consideration with shipowners), Milford is unquestionably particularly well-adapted for an export coal trade were the proper facilities provided for loading quickly as at Cardiff and other Welsh port?. Ships are constantly going in for ballast from London and Liverpool to lead at Cardiff while the voyage from either port to Milford is not only shorter but less dan- gerous, and many shipowners would gladly avail them- selves of the.se advantages. Moreover, if the loading arrangements were complete, it would be specially ad- vantageous to be able both to coal and kad cargo at a terminal wharf at that place." The proposed landing-stage will, we are informed, be about 500 feet long, running out from a point called Newton Noyes. It will be supported on screw piles, I'and vessels of the largest burden will be enabled to load i and unload there in all states of the tide-the depth at low water of ordinary spring tides being 27 feet. The loading stage will he directly connected with the Great ) Western Railway system by a branch line through the town of Milford, the works on which are now in active progress.

CARMARTHEN. THE NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD.—A meeting of the Council was held on Wednesday, in the Shire Hall; the Rev Latimer Jones in the chair. The business was of a formal character and the only matter of public interest was the selection of artistes to take part in the evening concerts. The artistes engaged are—Vocalists, Miss Edith Wynne, Madame Patey Whitlock, Miss Edmonds, Mr Lewis Thomas, and Mr W. H. Cumrning instru- mentalists, Mr Lazarus, Mr Brinley Richards, and Mr J. Thomas, or ApThomas. Mr Brooke was appointed accompanyist, and Mr Lleweliin Williams, harpist. Owain Alaw and Llew Llwyfo, were also engaged to take part in the Eisteddfod. The arrangement of the programme was left in the hands of Mr. Bunley Richards, who was present and kindly undertook the task. Mr Salter, paleontologist, of the Government Geolog'cal Survey, was appointed to arrange the geological pan of the physical science exhibition. HAYMAKERS AND THEIR <TOLL.' At the Borough police-court, on Monday week, before the Mayor, E. B. Jones, Esq,, and James Bagnall, and T. Lewis, Esqrs., a young woman, named Phoebe Phillips, the wife of Eenjamia Phillips, was charged by Mr. Thomas George, C.E. and Surveyor, of Carmarthen, with an assault. Mr. T. Davies appeared for the plaintiff; the defendant was not represented by a solicitor. Mr. Davies having briefly stated the facts of the case, called Mr. George, who deposed: I am Civil Engineer and County Bridge Surveyor, residing at Carmarthen. On either Tuesday or Wednesday last I passed through one )f the fields leading from the gas works to the Royal Oak gate, and in the fourth field there were some men and women making hay. The defendant was amongst them, near the wickt't gate at the end nearest the town. When I entered the field they crossed up and intercepted me, stopping right across the path, I asked them what I they meant by preventing my pa-.sing, and they said that I should pay them some money before I passed. I told them it was very strange, that they might as well stop i me in the turnpike-r 'ad as in a path in that way, and they replied that it was an old custom, which they meant to keep up I said that if it was an old custom it was a very foolish one, and the sooner it was stopped th" better. I told them that if they would give me their names I would give them money on the morrow, but not then. The defendant was willing to do this, but the others were not, and then I asked them what would be the alternative of my not giving them money. They said that the consequence would be that I should be thrown down and tied. This conversation was in Welsh. 1 told them that the struggle must come I asked how many they were, and they replied two." I then walked back a few paces, put my hat, umbrella, and walking stick down, and asked them What are you going to do now." The defendant approached me; I kept my hands to my sides, and I gave her a chance to throw me, but she could not, and I then threw her down. After throw- ing her I wont cross-legged over her (loud laughter), ready to meet the other one, who win coming up. Ali this time the defendant had been resisting, and trying to get tip; whilst the other woman came up and laid hold of me, so I knelt down, took hold of her ancle and tilted her over. (Renewed laughter.) Whilst I was leaning backwards to do this, the defendant., who was under me, managed no twist my anele, and then got on top of me. (Laughter.) The other woman whom I had tilted over, assisted her. I heard one of the men in the Meld say, He is gamo enough, let him go.' One of the women replied, He is not angry, look at him smiling then they allowed me to get up. and I walked away. After I had got about seventy or eighty yards, the wo- man came up to me and told me that there was hay on my back, should they brush it off? I thought she lo"k"d mischievous, so I told her to leave it. alone, as it. looked sporting. I then walkel backwards, telling her to keep at a distance. She afterwards begged for besr, saying, 'If you give us some beer you shall go.' I thereupon promised to pay for some beer at the Tioyal Oak, and, having made the promise, did not feel at liberty to break it, so I left sixpence for them at the Royal Oak. Mr Lewis Then, Mr George, you putdown your hat, umbrella, and pipe for the purpose of vanquishing the woman ? Mr George: No; I laid it down because I have been served before in the same way, and I knew that there would be a scufHe. served before in the same way, and I knew that there would he a scuffle. Mr Warren I think it is only fair to the defendant to ask whether this tumbling was done in good humour ? Mr George 1 was very angry, and very much fin- noyed, and consented in no way at all. noyed, and consented in no way at all. Mr Davies What about your ancle, Mr George did j you sustain any injury ? Mr George I do not wish to press that for a moment: I merely wish for a nominal fine. Mr Davies: I think you may as well say what injury you sustained. Mr George Well. I shall be laid up for a couple of months. In reply to questions put to him by the defendant, Mr George said that it was quite true that, after the seuffi., he returned through the field, and she offered him some of the ale he had paid for, but which he re- fused to take. Ho WHS quite certain that it occurred on the Tuesday, as several gentlemen were attacked about the same time. Mr George Thomas (Magistrates' Clerk) said that undoubtedly the custom was one that ought to be put down, (fiear, hear.) Rachel Jenkins deposed that she was in the hay field Rachel Jenkins deposed that she was in the hay field last Saturday week when Mr George camo up. There were two women besides herself. Mr George asked how many there were, having first remarked, It is a custom I don't like, I will try you.' He then t"ok off his hat, put down his umbrella and pipe, caught hold of Phillips, and threw her down. Ptoebe was quite ready for him. (Laughter.) Cross-examined by Mr Davie3: We did not get across the path, but close to it. We were doing the same then as is done in every field where there is a foot path. It is the custom to stop passengers, demand money of them, and throw them down if they did not pay. We asked Mr George to give us as little as he pleased, and he then asked how many we were. We did not tell him we would throw him down if he did not pay. I did not hear him say that he was unwell. The defendant did not try to throw Mr George until he tried to throw her we did not think of moiesting him until he put his pipe, hat, and umbrella down. I did not hear Mr George ask for the names before the scuffle; but Phoebe Phillips gave them when lie was going away. Margaret Griffiths deposed that on Saturday week she was in the hay-field, about 50 yards from Phcebe Phillips and the other women. She heard Phosje go up to Mr George and asked him if he knew the custom of hay. He replied that he did, and asked how many there were. The reply was Two he said I will try you,' put down his pipe and stick, and put Phoebe down. The other woman went up, laid hold of Phoebe's hand, and Mr George then laid hold of her leg, and put her down. By the time the jug of beer was in the field Mr George came back, but refused to drink, saying that they wanted ) it more than he did. She was certain that it was not on Tuesday, and she had seen Dr. Lewis pass through a short time before Mr George. Dr Lewis said that to the best of his belief he went thr ugh on Saturday week. Cross-examiuation continued: Defendant did not put her two arms round Mr George's waist and try to throw him he tried to throw her first. She did not see Phoebe Phillips lying on Mr George, and he with his two hands trying to push her off. She considered that the last witness went to Phoebe to assist her, as Mr George had the best of her. She did not observe Mr George walking backwards but Phoebe followed him, and be asked her to fetch the beer. This was the case for the defence; and there was a conversation between Mr George and the magistrates. Mr George said he had no feeling at all in the matter, and Mr G.Thomas said he was sure that the summons had been taken out with the best intention—to put a stop to the annoying practice. Mr Warren thought it necessary that a repetition of such an obstruction should be prevented and Mr Bag- nall said that such an ab-urd custom should be put down Mr George replied that this was just what he wanted. Ultimately, Mr Davies said that he was instructed by Mr George to withdraw the case if the defonJant would give a pro- mise not to offend again, an,1 in that event no costs would fall upon ber. The woman might have thought it all a joke, although Mr George did not. tlluuout ihe .U ay or and Mr \Y arren pave the women clear! to undetstand that they must not be guilty of such con- duct in the future, and that, in a public foot patb they had no right to moiest anyhodv. The defendant readily promised not oftend again in a like manner, and add/d that she would not have tonched Mr George if he had not touched her first. (Laughter.) The summons was then withdrawn.
AGRICULTURAL HALL, ISLINGTON.*—So marked has been the success of the concerts inaugurated by the Messrs. Defries ht this hall, that during the past week alone nearly one hundred thousand persons have visited the building. It is now announced that arrangements have been made to continue these concerts for a limited period. The decorations end illuminations, as on the evening of the Belgian ball, still remain, and form a great source of attraction to visitors; whilst for the musi- cal part of the entertainment Mr F. Kingsbury, the leader, has secured the services of several artists of known reputation, A PROBA.TE CASE. — SURPRISING SUCCESS OF A TRADESMAN,—In the Court of Probate, a case came be- ,'ore Sir J. P. Wilde and a special jury which was chiefly remarkable on account of the great fortune of the tes- rator, who had commenced life as an errand-boy in a cheesemonger's shop. By perseverance be succeeded in getting a business of his own, in which he worked so iard that at the time of his death he was woith £ 140,000. He bad in his employ a brother, with whom, however, he was not on friendly terms, and in the will he gave ¡his brother only a very small amount. He (the brother) therefore resisted the will, the ground alleged being in- capacity. The case was subsequently arranged between. the parties, TIIE AMERICAN LIVE RAFT.—A curiously con- structed raft, designed for use in savins; life from shipwreck, has made a voyage from America to Southampton in safety. The structure is twenty- four feet long and twelve feet six inches broad. It is formed of three cylinders pointed at the ends, which are connected by canvas, strengthened by boards slipped under strong iron neckpieces, the whole kept together by lashings. There are two masts. Jn a strong locker the food and necessaries for the voyage were kept, and over this was raised a sort of low tent of waterproof cloth, stretched over a boom and closed at both ends. Herein the crew slept. John Miles, captain, with George Miller and Jerry Mallene, navigated the raft. Two slept while the third watched. They sailed by dead reckoning, and came without accident in forty-three days from New York. They had to lay to seven times on account of bad weather, but, with the ex- ception of Miller, who was poorly two days, they all enjoyed perfect health. THE TAILORS' STRUCK.—The July adjourned quarter sessions for Middlesex was held on Saturday, at the Guildhall, Westmins'er, for the purpose of hearing pe- titions hnd appeals. Mr Bodkin, the Assistant Judge, presided. Thomas Sanson, George Burns. Benjimia Tonks, and William Mansworth appealed against convic- tion-) bv M r Knox, one of the magistrates of Marlborough- strp,et Police court, on a charge in each case of unlaw- fully endeavouring to force one George Simps n, a workman, to depart from his hiring, employment, and work. and upon which they were eaoh sentenced to three months' imprisonment. Mr Seijeant Ballantine, Mr Sleigh, and Mr F. H. Lewis appeared in support of the convictions Mr Ribton and Mr Poland being for the appellants. The circumstances of this case have already been given in our police intelligence. The convictions of the first three prisoners were confirmed. Mansworth said that, after what he had heard upon the cafe, he should withdiaw his appeal and suffer hi.3 imprisonment. There was an improper administration of justice in Eng- land, and under such circumstances it would be useless for him to proceed. A painful scene in court was the result of his determination, his wife clinging to him. and crying. With great difficulty the officers separated them. Josesh Reardon, a journeyman tailor, also ap- pealed against a similar conviction, the charge against him being for unlawfully endeavouring to force certain workmen to depart, from their work. It was proved that in a half-drunken state Reardon mado a bet that he would get a job at Oliver and Brown's, without any feeling against the men there employed. lIe was himself in full work, and had been so for six or seven years. The result of the evidence adduced was the quashing of the conviction.

for the general mnsical taste of the town, that nigger entertainments are, without exception, abundantly pa- tronized, while good, sterling music, well and faithfully rendered, can scarcely attract the mere skeleton of an audience.
