THE GEAMMAR SCHOOL, HAVEUFORDWEST.-It givef 113 much pleasure to state that Mr T. D. Harris, or Laneast, baa recently successfully passed the Preliminary Examination of the College of Surgeons. Mr Harris ^as a pupil of tbe Haverfordwest Grammar School under the Rev W. Bowen Rowlands, head master. DRUNKENNESS AND RIOTOUS CONDUCT.-At the Police Office on Monday week, before the Mayor, Jno.

Id his triennial visitation at St. Mary's Church on Tuesday week, for the purpose of performing the ordinance of confirmation. There were upwalds of 300ofbuth sexos confirmed. The lessons were read by the vicar of St. Mary's, the Rev. J. H. A.Philipps. and before and after the performance of the rite the Lord Bishop delivered a solemn and impres- sive address. There were present several of the clergy from the parishes in the district, and a great number of persons from the town and neighbourhood. TIn; SALM.N FISHERY.—We have much satisfaction in stating that Mrs Roch, of Butter nilI, has given directions for the construction of a suitable salmon pass at Llax-haden Weir. Mrs Roch, as soon as she was in- formed that a salmon pass was necessary at the weir on her estate, at once communicated with the conservators, and with a generosity which we cannot too highly com- taend, expressed her readiness to construct the pass ir. the manner which would best meet the wishes of the conservators. If the owners of weirs were to treat the conservators with the same courtesy and liberality as Nrs Rocn has done, we should speedily see c. very great improvement in the salmon fishery in this county. J NEWPORT, --Now that the bathing season has commenced, the attractions of this beautiful little watering place should be more generally known than it is at present. Newport, distant from Cardigan 12 miles, is a small market town in Pembrokeshire, on the sea coast, with a fine bay, and a large extent of sands. The town has at its back a picturesque range of rugged hills, and thus combines sea and mountain air. The neighbourhood is full of reminiscences of antiquity, such as ancient churches, cromlechs, and old British crosses and there are also beautiful rides and drives with most varied scenery in fact, in man)" respects, the situation of Newport reminds the traveller of one of these romantic old towns that he so frequently sees nestled under the foot of the Appennines.

B BIUDY, Captain and Adjutant, 1st Administrative Battalion Pem. R.V. TRIAL OF MOWING MACHINES.—An interesting trial of mowing machines took place at Slebech on Tuesday week, between three mowers, belonging to tenants on the estate, for a prize offered by the Baron de Rutzen. The field selected was on the farm of Toch, and after openings had been made, and rather more than an acre had been cut out for each, the three mowers started about eleven o'clock. The first completed the work in cue hoar and nine minutes, and the second about 'fi t'a minutes later. The makers of the machines were Hornsby and Co, Burgess and Key, and Wood, and ali completed their work in such an admirable manner that the judges, Mr Lewis, of Picton Farm, and Mr Smith, of New House, bad no easy task to decide on the merits oi each. The judges awarded the prize to Burgess and Key's machine on account of its light draught, even cut, and simplicity of construction. In addition to the prize, Baron de Rutzen presented each driver with a hand- some gratuity for the manner in which the work was performed in a field with more than an average crop, and under very difficult circumstances. The machine, to which the first prize was awarded, was a remarkably well made implement, and was supplied by Mr Stephen Green, ironmonger, of High Street. COURT OF CHANCERY.-AUG. 3.

The prosecutor deposed I am a shoemaker, and live at the Old Dockyard, Milford. On Sunday evening at eleven o'clock, my watch was hanging on the dresser in Esy own house. The value of it is £ 2 10s, and there was a silver chain attached to it. About two o'clock I lost the watch and chain. I saw the prisoner about five O CIOCK, and told him I bad lost my watch. He said I have been here before now, but I have not got your watch.' He came to try on a pair of boots. On Tuesday morning the watch was carried back to me by Margaret Miller. Margaret Miller deposed: I live at Milford. I was going to Mr Luke's on Tuesday morning. I saw the pri- soner coming from there. He asked me if I knew where Mr Luke lived, and gave me the watch. He told me to put it by the door. I did so. I was going to Mr Luke's to have boots mended. The prosecutor recalled There was a knock at my door, and I saw this woman and a little girl standing at the door. One of them said Here's a watch by the door.' I said 'You carried it here.' Miller did not make much answer, but walked away. I did not see any boots with her, nor did she speak about mending boots. Miller recalled: I did not know anything about the watch I did not know it was a stolen watch. I was not keeping company with the prisoner the night before. I had a talk with him the night before. He told me to take the watch that night, and I agreed to do so. The prisoner said he had nothing to do with the watch and did not give it to the witness Miller. The Jjeacui dismissed the case, CRICKET.—COMMERCE HOUSE V.

The annual meeting of this association was com- menced on Monday, the 29th of July, and was continued on Tue-day and Wednesday. The weather on each day was very fine-in fact too fine for rifle shooting, for the sun shone out with groat brightness, and produced a dazzling mirage, which greatly influenced the shooting. The programme was an attractive one, and represented the sum of £ 115 in money, which was divided into 124 prizes. In addition to these, there were two silver Cups,-oue presented by Mrs Philipps, of Picton Castle, and the other by Mrs Scourfield, of Wil- Hamston,—and a prize given by Mr Enos Allen, of High Street, consisting of a pair of Hythe or Rifle Boots. Tiie weapon used in the competitions was the Long Enfield llifie, with the exception of Lord Kensington's Prize, in which the competitors were at liberty to use either the Long Enfield or the Artillery Carbine. This prize was con- fined to tbe Volunteers of the County, aud the association permitted the use of either weapon because the volunteers who were eligible to compete for it consisted of rifle and artillery companies. The targets and scoring throughout the meeting were the same as at Wimbledon, the position at the 200 yards being off the shoulder, and at all the other ranges kneeling. The following is the reselt of the different competitions:— PRIZE OF £15, restricted to Members of the Haverfordwest CorpF.

The marking was performed hy the drill instructors of the Milford and Pembroke Volunteers, assisted by two members of thellaverford- west Volunteers, and it is but justice to them to state that the targets were kept in admirable order, and that the signalling was done with accuracy and prompti- tude. The Secretary of the association, Mr John R. Phillips, performed his onerous duties with his usual ability, and much of the success of the meeting is due to the care and attention he bestowed in tho arrangement of the detnils. The squad lists were made out with a rapidity that was highly creditable to the Secretary, and it is impossible to speak too highly of the neatness and accuracy with which j the register of the scores were kept. INTERESTING CEREMONY AT SAINT DAVID'S CATHEDRAL. On Thursday, July 4th, several of the inhabitants of this ancient City met at the Cathedral, now in course of restoration, to witness the re-placing of the coffin containing the bones of Bishop Gower, in the original grave which he had prepared for himself, and which was under the Rood loft, to the extreme right as you enter the choir from the dais. This grave was opened some two years ago for the purpose explained in the document below. The lead coffin was found to be in an excellent state of preservation. It was now re-soldered shortly after 11 o'clock, a.m., enclosed in a cover of wood, and let into the grave, with also a sealed bottle containing a printed extract of an article written about eighteen months ago by Mr J. B. Clear, clerk of the vl n works to the Arclucologia Camhensis, giving a full ac- count of the graves disturbed &=, and the following do- cument Saint David's Pembrokeshire, Juiy 4th, 1867. These remains of Bishoo Gower were removed from here on Tuesday, March 21st, 1865, on account of one of the main shores being placed immediately above the grave as the enclosed (the printed extract alluded to above) will explain, 'lhey were re-placed this 4th day of July, 1867, in the presence of J now engaged in and about the Cathedral. Gower died iu the year 1347; and so was for»l( years undisturbed. As above stated it became reaessary to do 80, and in the presence of several Of clergy, and inhabitants, the grave was opened and sequently the coffin. There was nothing however < eovered with him except a Pastoral Staff.
