So much research, eloquence, and talent were displayed, as the inhabitants of a rural district have rarely t.he pleasure of hearing. She attention given by a crowded audience was such as manifested the interest awakened, and which never abated during the whole of the lecture. The chair was occupied by the Rev S. Brigstoeke, who at the close of the lecture, proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Lewis, which was most heartily responded to. The Rev T. Williams, of Langum, proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman, with which the proceedings terminated. We hear that the funds, arising from the sale of the tickets, will be devoted to the building of a new bell-turret and vestry for the parish Church. THE JOINT LUNATIC ASYLUM.—ASSAULT BY Tiry MATRON ON A LUNATIC.-At the Police Court, held at Carmarthen, on Monday week, Miss E. 11. Lewis, matron of the Joint Lunatic Asylum, was charged with assaulting an inmate of the building named Mary Ann Bowers. The facts of the case appear to be that a quarrel took place between two of the patients, the attendants want to separate them, and Miss Lewis, as matron, directed the attendants to take Miss Bowers, who was the most violent of the two women, up to her room. The patient resisted, and Miss Lewis assisted to take her up- stairs, as Miss Bowers is a very strong woman. She caught hold of the matron's jacket and ripped it, and the defendant beat the patient with a bunch of keys on the thigh, and afterwards strnck her with a stick. The patient at the time was naked and lying on the bed. The defendant also spat in the patient's face, knocked her twice in :he chest, and called her a nasty brute. The defendant, through her solicitor, pleaded guilty to the charge of assault, bat denied that she spat in Miss Rowers's face, or caded her a na"ty brute. The Bench ordered the defendant to pay a fine of £ 10 and costs, with the alternative of tbreo months' imprisonment. The money was immediately paid, CRICKET,—A match was played at Cardigan on Thurs- day and Friday between the Haverfordwest and Cardigan Ciubs. The game was well contested, and terminated in favour of the Haverfordwest Eleven by 10 runs. The fowling on the part of the Havcrford west side was very good, particularly in the second innings, in which Mr Trindall bowled several maiden overs. The highest scores were made by Mr Williams and Mr Rowe, who played with great steadiness, and scored respectively 31 aud 20. The highest score on the Cardigan side wa's 16, mads by Mr Pigot.

These sessions were held at the Shire Hal!, on Satur- day, before A. B. Starbuck, Esq, O. E. Davies, Esq, S. Harford, Ejq, J. P. J ones, Esq, Captain Child, and the Re7 P. PLelps. CUTTING PRISONERS' HAIR BEFORE TRIAL. Before the commenceraeat of the usual business of the Court, Mr E. T. Massy, addressing the Bench, said: Will you peraii me to wake ai observation iu reference to some remarks which were made at the last court respect- ing the Governor of the Jail ? I see it stated in the re port in the newopaper, that Mr Phelps found some fauk with the Governor because he cut the hair of a b03 named Banner- Rev Peter Phelps Yos-his hair was cut before trial. Mr E. T. Massy: Well, as the remarks got into tht newspaper, I think it is but right and just to the jaile; that I should come here and state publicly why thi boy's hair was cut. It was done in consequence of thl state his head was in the boy came to the jail in so un- clean a state that it was absolutely requisite bis hair should be cut. It was not done because he was font to prison, but, as the act of parliament permits, in conse- quence of unclearliness. The boy was unfortunately in such a state as required it to be done I need not specify the form of uncleanliness-- Captain Child: Couldn't they use mercurial oint- ment ? Mr Massy: I merely give the explanation, as the matter was talked of. Mr 0. E. Davies: The Governor had power to do what he did; and as the boy was in a dirty state, he acted very properly. Mr Massy I thought it was due to the Governor to make this public explanation. It was done from motives of cleanliness, and I was requested to make this explanation to the Bench. Rev P. Phelps: I am very glad to bear it. Mr O. E. Davies: It is satisfactory to the Bench, I think. DESERTING SERVICE. — MASTER AND SERVANT. John Jenkins was charged with deserting the service of John Davies. The defendant did not appear. This case had been adjourned from a previous sessions, to enable enquiry to be made as to whether proceed- ings commenced under the old act were affected by the new act, which bad not then been received by the ma- gistrate. clerk. The parties had also accepted a sug- gestion of the Bench that they should in the meantime endeavour to settle the matter, the complainant express- ing his willingness to abandon proceedings if the de- fendant would give up possession of a cottage which he held by the terms of his hiring. The Clerk said that since the adjournment, he had received the act of parliament, and that the Bench had power to deal with the case as if the new act had not been passed. The complainant said the defendant had not come to him to endeavour to make any settlement, nor bad he de- livered up possession of the house. The Clerk Perhaps the Bench w:ll permit me to say that it appears to me that under the new act of parlia- ment those servants who engage but do not go to their service, will be liable to proceedings although the agree- ment was made only by word of mouth. In other words there is a remedy for those parties who hire and take the shilling, but who do not go to their service. That is a case which very often occurs in the county—— Complainant: Yes,-and has happened to me. The Clerk: If I understand the new act of parlia- ment, that grievance will not occur again at any rate if it does occur, there will bo a remedy. Perhaps you will allow me to state that in order that it may go to the public through the Press. The act says that the words contract of service shall include any contract whether in writing or by parol. Captain Child Is it necessary to have a witness to the contract ? The Clerk: At the present moment I can't answer that questicn. I have only had the act this morning. Capt. Cuild If there is no one present, the word of one is as good as the other. The Clerk: That is a matter of fact: this is a matter of law. Mr Harford I think, Mr James, if in addition to what you have said, you were to advise the parties who are interested in the matter to have a written agreement in all cases—I mean merely as a piece of advice—it would be very serviceable; because there is so much contradiction amongst them wfth regard to this parol evidence, that it is impossible for us in many instances to decide who is right. I think it would be very advan- tageous to all panies if the agreement was always in writing. The Clerk: I quite agree with you, that would bo the best; but the evil of that is, that the minute you produce a piece of paper, they are off like birds. Mr Harford: I don't think people are so ignorant as that. I think myself it would be well for all parties I if the agreements were always in writing. The complainant said the defendant hired with him on June fair day for 12 months. The wages were to be 9s a week and a house and garden. The defendant was also to have his food when mowing Jay bay and pitching hay, and during three weeks in the corn harvest, making altogether about six weeks. He paid the defendant every week. The defendant went away, but continued to occupy the house. He was married and had four children. The Bench committed the defendant to prison for twenty-one days, and ordered him to pay costs; and in default of payment of costs, a distress to issue, and in default of distress, to be further imprisoned for,seven days. MOVING CATTLE WITHOUT A LICENCE. William White, butcher, of Neyland, was charged with failing to produce a licence when moving cattle. The defendant said that 3e bought the be:.st at Sutton Lodge, of Mr Henry Davies, whose man had the licence for moving cattle. The man was not there, and he removed it himself. He had now the licence to show to the Bench. Lie bought the animal with the inten- tion of keeping it for a couple of weeks, but he killed it the next day. The Clerk; I am bound to tell the Bench that you have not produced a proper licence this is a store stock licence. Defendant: Mr Davies was to deliver the beast to me when he sold it. This is his licence. Clerk: You both tried to do tho law you are like a man shooting with another person's licence. P. C. Williams said that Mr White told him that he thought the system of licences was done away with. The defendant said he believed a licence was not wanted. The Bench announced that the defendant must pay a fine of Is and costs. Mr Harford: I don't like these artful dodges. If a man is wrong, let him acknowledge it like an honest man but for him to play the artful dodger, I don't like it at all. Rev P. Phelps As he tried to do the law, we think he ought to pay a fine of 2s 6d. Clerk: You will have to pay 10s 6d: Mr Davies Dught to pay the extra Is 6d for you. USING THREATS. Margaret Rosen, of Milford, was charged with using threats towards William Lloyd. The defendant did not appear. This case had been adjourned, both parties having agreed to refer their dispute for settlement to Mr Star- buck. Mr Starbuck stated that he had been unable to make any arrangement between the parties. The Bench said they bad no jurisdiction in the case, and consequently dismissed it. They recommended the complainant to bring his case before the Judge of the County Court. STEALING COLOURED PRINTS. Martha John, of Milford, was charged with stealing four coloured engravings of the value nf 33, the property of John Smith, travelling agent of Zoom and Co., of London. The complainant deposed that he lodged with the pri soner, and on Monday night left in her parlour the pic- tures wrapped up in oil cloth. About ten o'clock OIl Tuesday morning, he missed the throe pictures produced. The prisoner opened a drawer, and he saw the pictures in it. He said nothing to the prisoner when he saw ttu prints but went and informed the police. P. Sergt. Carrol deposed that he went to the prisoner'^ house, and-told her that the complainant had lost somi pictures. He asked her to permit him to search, and she gave her consent. He told her that she would savt him trouble if she would inform him where they were, "md she gave them up. She afterwards said she did not enow what induced her to take them, and that the devil nust have tempted her. The prisoner pleaded guilty, saying that she took the pictures, not intending to steal them. The complainant was drunk every night, but the night she took the pic- ures he was sober. Mr O. E. Davies You thought if he was drunk he vould not miss them. (Laughter.) The Bench committed the prisoner to jail for one month with bard labour.
T E N B Y. BODY FOUND.—On Thursday, the 23rd ult., a person of the name of Beynon, while walking on the shore in the neighbourhood of Pendine saw an object floating in the water. On its being washed ashore be discovered it to be the body of a man upwards of 6 feet 5 inches in height, The body is supposed to have been last from some vessel in the neighbourhood. SAUNDEP.SPOOT -The annual tea mooting in conneo j tion with the Baptist Chapel of this village took place on Tuesday last. Upwards of 200 persons partook of an excellent tea and cake. At the dose of the tea meeting addresses were delivered by several ministers of various j denomination", which were listened to with preat atten- i tion. B Williams, Esq, barrister-at-law, in the chair. Votes of thanks were accorded to the chairman and others, and the meeting separated, highly pleased with the entertainment. DR DYSTER'S DRINKING FOUNTAIN.—This beautiful work is now nearly finished. It does credit to the archi- tect, Mr Kempson, for his appropriate design, and to Mr James Rogers, the builder, for the excellent way in which he has carried out his contract. It is an ornament to Tudor Place, where it is erected, and will be a lasting memorial of the donor's generosity. Fortunately, owing to the Ladyweit and Hollybush springs being conveyed to the town, we apprehend we need not again fear any scarcity of water. ODDFEHowaiMp.—On Monday, the 26th ult, the brethren of the Loyal Ship and (Jastle Lodge of Odd- fellows, M.U., had their turn out. After being mar- ahalled at the National School, they proceeded to Church at eleven o'clock, where an excellent sermon was preached to them by the reotor, the Rev George Huntington. When service was concluded, they walked in procession round the town, preceded by tho town band, and carry- ing their banners and regalia. About half-past one over sixty sat down to dinner at the Commercial Hotel, the Rector in the chair, when the brethren spent a pleasant afternoon together. The dinner was first rate and reflected great credit on the host, Mr It. Gordon. On Saturday, the 2.5th ult., the last performance of the Theatrical Company took placeat the Royal Assembly Rooms, for the benefit of Mr West Digues. on which occasion several of our amateur townsmen performed. The play was Sir B. Lytton's Money.' Mr T. H. Thomas was cast for Sir Benjamin Stoat,' Mr R. Evans as 'Glossmore,' and Mr W. M. Walkington as Sharp.' The whole performance was well received by a large audience. We must not omit to mention the very laugh- able pas de deux which took piace between Mr T. Rees and the widow, a scene of the most mirth provoking description. The entertainment concluded with Box and Cox.' In noticing the conclusion of the theatrical season we cannot refrain from an expression of regret that these entertainments should have been so badly attended. SAUNDERSFOOT PETTY SESSIONS, August 2ï.-Before Dr Dyster, H. Sanders, G. B. Williams, and J. M. Child, Esqrs.—EMza Davie:) summoned Evan Davits as the putative father of herjjbastard child.

TENBY CORPORATION. At an adjourned quarterly meeting he!d on Wednes- day, the question of the payment of the Town Clerk's bills for professional services in connection with the arbitration case of Mr and Mrs Lock against the Board Health, and for the transfer of some mortgages, was referred to the Fnanco Committee, for them to report as to whether they agreed as to the propriety of paying only the reduced amounts recommended by the sub- committee, or, if more, what addition should be made thereto. Th3 Mayor stated that Plead-Constable Harrison wished to resign his office, as he asserted that, from injuries which he had sustained while in the service of the Corporation, he was no longer able to retain it, and therefore was entitled to a superannuation allowance. The mayor said he intended to call a special meeting to consider ike question. j On the motion of Mr Allen, a special committee, con- sisting of the Mayor, Mr Allen, Mr White, and Mr Rees, was appointed to collect fact3 as to the advantages or disadvantages that would arise from amalgamating with the county police, both as to the cost and the efficiency < of the force. Permission was given the contractor for building the defences on St Catherine's Rock to make from it to the Castle Hill a temporary suspension foot-bridge, which was not to interfere in any way with the boundary wall of the Castle H ill. A letter vva3 read from P.C. Thomas, applying for the ofiice of Head Constable. Referred to the Watch Com- mittee. PEMBROKE AND TENBY RAILWAY COMPANY.

Hustler, D. A. Reid, and N. A. Roeh Esqrs.] Thomas POl time, of Pembroke, was charged by James Lath wood, founder, Pembroke, with stealing threa pounds and seven shillings, moneys belonging to com- plainant. his master, on the 24th of April last. Mr W. O. Hulm, of Pembroke apppeared for com- plainant. James Lath wood deposed: I am a founder in Pem- broke. I know the prisoner Thomas Fortune he has been in my employ as a labourer, mostly weekly, a-d was so on the 24th of APlillast. On that day I sent him down to Milford for one ton of pig-iron from Mr Thomas Richards. I gave him C3 7s in money to pay for it. He left me to go to Milford. I did not have the iron from Mr Richards. I never saw the prisoner afterwards, or the money until now. I went to Milford the next day and found prisoner bad not been to Mr Richards. When prisoner left my service to go to Milford, he did not go under notice on either side. He should have returned the same evening with the iron. 1 made complaint before the magistrates a few davs after- wardsr and prisoner his not been beard of until now. At the time prisoner was sent to Milford I wrote a letter to Mr Richards, and sent it by prisoner. I stated in the letter that he was to send the iron, and that I had given' prisoner the money to pay for it. X3 3j was for the iron,, and 49 for prisoner's expenses in bringing up the iron which I intended to be dona by a boat. I believe the money I gave him was two sovereigns, a half-sover- eign, and seventeen shillings in silver. Cross-examined by prisoner: The 4s for your ex- penses was not to include your day's pay, but only your own expences and the carriage of the iron up. I told you to get it up the best way you could, and if there wera any more expenees than the 4?., I would pay you. I did not tell you to give 33 for a boat to take it off to the Gipsey. I never mentioned the Gipsey to btin2 it up.

I delivered the ton of iron and was paid for it by Mr Lathwood and another person, but not by the prisoner. Thomas Phillips deposed T am Acting-Sergeant of tho Pembrokeshire Constabulary at Pen: broke. This warrant was issued ajrainst the prisoner for this offence towards the end of April Inst. He absconded at,the time and was apprehended on Monday morning last in Pembroke ;• ba told me when I read the warrant to him that he knew nothing about the money, and never had any money from Mr Lathwood. About an hoar afterwards, when in tb3 cell, he remembered having somewhere over f3, but on the way down to Milford he lost the money, and in consequense be did not return to Pembroke. Committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions. Thomas Phillips and Robert Williams, were charged by James Dawkins, of Bierspooi, tollgate keeper, with driving through the gate without paying the legal toll, fourpence, for a horse and cart each. No appearance Ellen Davies was charged by Frances Powell with an assault, on the 15th inst." It appeared that both parties were near relations. Neither appeared in court. John Jff'Cormick, Thomas Wilcox, and Richard Powell, all of Pennar, Pembroke Dock, were charged by John Lewis, gamekeeper to T. Meyrick, Esq, of Bush, with, trespass on certain lands on the Bush Estate, on the 16th inst, in scarch of game and rabbits.

PEMBROKE-DOCK. PEMBROKE DOCK GARRISON.—On Saturday evening, the 24th inst. about 200 men, belonging to the following depots: 1st, 2nd, 9th, 36th. 46th, 47th, and 58th regiments arrived here from Devenportin the steamship Odd House. They landed at the vier, Hobbs Point, and marched from thence to the Huts Encampment, to rejoin the 13th Depot Battalion. These detachments of soldiers were sent to Plymouth some few months ago, where it was anticipated their services would be required. Their further presence in the district, however, being deemed unnecessary, the men have returned to their old quarters. We may observe that. Major-General Spencer, K.C.B, ia his general orders at Devonport, spoke in high terms of the excellent conduct of these troops during their stay at Plymouth. This must -not only be highly flat- tering to the men themselves, but also to the commandant of the battalion, Colonel I. Moore, and the other officers. PEMBROKE DOCK VOLUNTEERS.—-On Saturday, the 24th inst, a large excursion (got up under the auspice3 of Serg.-Major T.Forder, and the non-commissioned officers of tho Artillery Voliiiiti-ers) went by special train to Tenby. the number of excursionists numbering about 900. The Pater corps marched to Hobos' Point to meet the Milford rifle corps, which arrived by special steamer; both corps then marched to the railway station, preceded by the Milford brass and Pater drum and life bands, plaing alternately. On arriving at Tenby the volunteers -were formed up, and then marched through the town to the South Parade, where they were dismissed. In the evening they returned again by train, and the Milford corps was convcyed down the Haven in the steamer. The officers in command were Capt. B. Jones, and Lieut. J. Richardson, Pater, and Captain Griffiths, Milford. The whole of the arrangements were well carried out, the excursion being a most successful one, reflecting credit upon the promoters. FiTAL ACCIDENT AT H.M. DOCKYARD. An accident attended with fatal results occurred at this yard yesterday. A large travelling crane for hoist- ing heavy materials had been supplied by Taylor a:1d Co., of Birkenhead, and was being tested in the presence of the engineer of the firm. It was elevated about forty feet for that purpose, when suddenly the whole machine toppled over, carrying with it the three men who were working it, and falling on them. One of the men, named James Rowlands, was killed instantaneously, his breast bone being smashed in and his brains oozing out through his ears. The other two men, (named Patrick Crowley and John Edwards,) died hslf an hour after the occur- rence. Mr Charles Richardson (Messrs Taylor's el1" gineer) was also severely injured, and was convoyed .on board H.M.S. Saturn for medical assistance. An in- quest was opened on the 30th ult, and was adjouraeu till the 12tb instant;,
