C. Wells W. Rees, Esqrs, and the Rev T. H,1 Dunn.—Richard Hawkins, horse dealer, was charged by Mr John Griffiths, Penally Court Farm, with stealing a horae from him, value P,23, on the morning of the 10th of October last. Mr W. V. James appeared for the pro- secution, and Mr Lewis for the defence. The Bench de- cided to end the case to the Quarter Sessions, bail being accepted for his appearand. AMROTH CASTLE. -SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—On Saturday last, the keeper at Amroth Castle met with a very serious accident when out in the grounds of the mansion. He had at the time of the accident a double barrelled gen- While on the look out for a cock his foot slipped and he fell, the pin of the gira happened to shake cut' and as he fell the barrels flew from the stock over his shoulder, one of the caps coming in contact with a stone the barrel went off. the whole of the charge entering his foot just at the ancle joint. Strange to say, although the bones at the point where the shot entered were re- gularly pulverized, the whole of the shot entered and remained within the fleshy part of the foot not a single shot having perforated the skin. The foot was taken off bv G. Chafer, Eoq, assisted by J. H. Hooper, Esq, and Dr Richards. We believe that the patient is progressing satisfactorily-. PRESENTATION TO THE REV T. BURDITT.—A purse of Twenty-five Guineas was presented to the Rev T. Burditt, by the congregation of South Parade Baptist Chapel, at a public meeting held at the Chapel on Monday evening. The proceedings were preceded by a tea meeting, at which there were about two hundred present, including some friends from Haverfordwest, with which place the rev. gentleman had been connected for a great number of years. The chair was taken by, the Rev W. Owen, of Hill Park Chapel, Haverfordwest, and the proceedings relating to the presentation were commenced by the singing of a hymn. after which Mr W. Evans, of Haverfordwest, at the request of the Chairman, offered up an appropriate prayer. The Chair- man then addressed the meeting, referring to the pro- pres" of thA connection at Tenby under the ministry of Mr Burditt, and speaking in warm terms of the exer- tions of the rev gentleman to promote the welfare of the charoh. MT James Rees, of Tenby, also ably addressed the meeting, and Mr W. Millar read the list of sub- scribers to tne testimonial, numbering altogether 150. Mr John Evans, who, in the absence of the senior deacon. had been deputed to present the testimonial, then handed the purse to Mr Burditt, which, he said, was intended as a token of the affectionate regard felt for him by the members of his congregation, and as a recognition of his labours among them. Mr Evans alao stated that the congregation intended to increase the minister's salary during the presentyear, and that during the two years of Mr Burditt's ministry the congregation had been doubled. Mr Burditt acknowledged the pre- sentation in a feeling speech, in which he thanked his friends for their kindness, and assured them that he valued the good feeling which had been manifested towarjs him far more than the pecuniary worth of the testimonial. Addresses were also delivered by Mr Phillips, Mr Noot, and Mr Rogers, and the proceedings, which were of a very interesting character, and well conducted throughout, were brought to a close by prayer. .¿
PEMBROKE. PKMBROKE MUNICIPAL ELECTION.—The election for the Pembroke ward was held at the Town Hall. There being no opposition, the following gentlemen were re- elected, viz., Mr William Trewent, gentleman, Mr George Thomas, Government Contractor, and Mr John Miller, King's Arms Hotel. At Pater, the election for that ward was held at the Victoria Hotel, and occasioned considerable excitement. The outgoing members were Messrs. Samuel Jenkins, Victoria Hotel, Charles Gard- ner, Bush Tavern, and James Rhodes, chandler: the two latter gentlemen did not seek re-election, therefore Mr Jenkins was the only member who stood for candida- ture. The other candidates were, Messrs. James Potter, and James Griffiths. The result of the poll was as fol- lows — Jenkins, 350; Haynes, 247; Potter, 228; Griffiths, 188; the latter gentleman therefore was un- successful.
PEMBROKE PETTY SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 30. [Before W. Trewent, Esq, Mayor, T. Mansel, J. Da-vkins, Douglas A. Reid, M.D., and J, Cocks, Esqrs."] l'ofr John Connors was charged by Mr George TVarlow with having assaulted him, and the redoubtable Ned Baldwin with aiding and abetting. Complainant., having been sworn, said he had a state- TOent to make, and commenced reading a document: I live in Pembroke-dock, in High-street, I believe they call it. About 8 p.m.-post meridian is the proper way to say it-however, about 8 p.m. will do-I was going- Magistrates'Clerk: Never mind where you were going, come to the assault—where did it take place? Complainant; I shall come to it directly. I went to meet a friend, and I love him, and no mistake! The Mayor: If .you do not put by the paper and go on with your evidence, the case will be dismissed. Complainant: Well, about 8 p.m., I went into the Commercial Hotel and met Connors and a rough-looking ugly bulldog of a man called Bald win-a prize fighter- — [Here complainant was reading the written statement again, and he was told to put it aside and confine him- self to evidence.] -Complainant: Why shan't I read it- I'll come to it directly. The Bench Confine yourself to evidence, or the case must be dismissed we cannot bear all that. Complainant: Oh, very well. Between eight and nine, J went to the Commercial, to meet my dear friend, Mr Jones, of Bristol. Connors and Baldwin were there. Connors asked me to spar with him. I said, No, I am too old.' He got up and pushed me in what I thought a friendly manner. They went into the bar parlour. I waited a little while for my friend and then went after them. A host of folks came there to see him there— [pointing to BaldwtI1]-the ugly brute, oh—[Here he was interrupted again.]—I wanted to go, and asked Con- nors for my stick, and Baldwin said, I Hit the h- a Jick under the lug.' This of course is the language he uses. (Laughter.) Connors hit me on the breast till he knocked all my buttons off, and just knocked my nose off-till I saw ten thousand gaslights. (Roars of laugh- ter.] I know no more. I went to the doctor. Seeing the Bench in consultation, complainant called out excitedly, I Don't let it drop. For the sake of humanity and God, shut them up to prevent further injury. I know nothing more. Connors said he knew nothing about it; he saw plaintiff there. They went into three rooms to escape irom his annoyance. He should never have thought of striking him, but should have been glad to take his part. If time had been allowed he could have produced a dozen witnesses. He had come to Pembroke, and been arrested in the street. The Mayor said the Bench were unanimouqly of Opinion that there was no charge against them, and they were dismissed. BOROUGH PETTY SESSIONS. [Town Hall, Saturday, November 2nd, before W. Tre- went, Mayor, Esq, L. Mathias, Esq, W. Hulm, Esq, and T. Lewis, Esq.] Thomas Davies, alias Tom Llaiohaden, of Pembroks Dock, was brought up on a summons, charged by MrCor- nelius Williams, druggist, Pembroke Dock, with stealing a sheet, the value of 4s, the property of the said Corne- lius Williams, on the 28th day of October last. Cafherine Thomas: I am servant to Mr Williams, of Bush-tfreet, Pembroke Dock. On Monday morning last I put out some clothes to dry at the Cambrian garden bolonging-to Mrs Williams, Mr Williams's mother, and amongpl them was a sheet. I went about six o'clock into the garden to fetch in the clothes. Before I com- menced taking the things a man jumped over the wall from the road into the garden. He was about a dozen steps from me. He was in the garden about five minutes and then sprang at the line and took the sheet that wet banging on the line. I called out' Lizzy two or three times. He stood a few minutes, and then jumped back over the wall and wrapped the sheet up and took it with him. I fetched in all the clothes and Trent home and told my mistress what had happened. I believe that to be the man. This is the sheets I know it by Mrs Williams's mark. Cornelius Williams deposed: I am a druggist at Bush-street, Pembroke Dock. On Monday evening last my servant reported to myself and. wife that a man had stolen a sheet from the garden. I reported it to the police, and gave a description of the man from what she told me on Wednesday. The policeman Davies brought me a sheet which I recognised as mine. The sheet produced is the same sheet. The value is 4s. P. C. John Davies deposed. About ten in the evening of the 28th October last I received information from Mr Williams about the loss of a sheet. I went to the pri- soner's house on Wednesday abo-dt two p.m., and with his wife's permission, I searched his bedroom and I found the sheet produced uppermost on top of the bed. I took it to Mr Williams's, and he identified it as his. About three o'clock the same afternoon I apprehended the prisoner in Albion Square. I told him the charge which was for stealing the sheet, and he denied taking it; but afterwards said be might as well tell the truth. He took the sheet but was drunk at the time. I took him to the lock-up. This is the sheet I took off his bed. The prisoner pleaded guilty and was summarily committed for two calendar months' hard labour. [Magistrates' Clerk's Office, Monday, 4th of November before D. A. Reid, Esq., and J. Dawkins, Esq.] Willia)jz Davies, of East End, Pembroke, was charged, by Thomas Phillips, acting sergeant, with being drunk and riotous on the 2nd inst, at the Old King's Ar., and refusing to leave when requested by the landlord. Acting Sergeant Thomas Phillips deposed: About a quarter past three D m. on Saturday last I saw prisoner going into the Old King's Arms. He was then very drunk. In a few minutes after Mr Miller, the landlord, called me and P. C. Evans in saying that the prisoner came in there drunk, and that he could not get him out. I went in and saw prisoner with his back against the bar-door. Mr Miller asked him in our presence to leave the house. He commenced cursing and swearing, saying he would not go out until he had the money due to him. Mr Miller said 'whatever money is due to you, come here when you are sober, you will get it. Mr Miller and Police Constable Evans put him out of the house into the street. He was very violent kicking and trying to bite, and when in the street, he was cursing and trying to go back into the house, and a crowd collecting P. C Evans and myself took him to the lock-up, and carried him nearly all the way, face downwards. John Miller, landlord of the Old King's Arms, corro- borated the above statement, and said defendant bad no beer in his house. Fined 5s and 8s 6d cos9. Committed in default for seven days'.
PEMBROKE FARMERS' CLUB. The usual quarterly meeting and dinner was held on Saturday week, at the Lion Hotel, when upwards of fifty gentlemen sat down to an excellent spread. The presi- dent was Mr F. L. Clluke, Penbroke, the vice president, Mr Lewis Mathias, of Lamphey Court. Amongst those present were Capt John Leach, Mr W. Hulm, Drs Man- sel, Reid, and Bryant, and Messrs J. 1. Fincham, Jonas Dawkins, T. Lewis, Capt B. Jones, Lieut W. O. Hulm, &c. After the cloth was removed, the usvial loyal toasts were proposed and duly honoured. The Chairman next proposed 'The Army, Navy, Yeomanry. and Volunteers.' Mr Fincham responded on behalf of the navy, Dr Mansel on behalf of the veomanry, and Capt B. Jones for the volunteers. A raffl) then took place for a bushel measure, and a small truck for moving sacks of corn. The former was won by Mr Griffiths, of Tenby, and the latter by Mr Venables, Angle. The Chairman then read over the names of the success- ful competitors for green crops, as follows:—On farms of not less than one hundred and fifty acres-First prize, £4, Mr W. B. Roberts, Loveston; second, £2, Mr R. L. Griffiths, Merrion; highly commended, Mr T. Lewis, of Norchard. On farms under one hundred and fifty acres —First prize. £ 2, Mr A. Jermyn, Kingswood; second, £ 1, Mr Tom Young, Bangeston Green. The Vice Cbturman said that the subject for discussion that day was The Care and Management of Fences.' He thought if Mr T. Lewis would kindly give his view of the matter in the paper he was about to read, a discussion thereon might ensue. (Hear, hear.) Mr Lewis, Norchard, then rose, and said that the sub- ject he was about to bring forward was the management of fences. In this county many thought this a small matter. He had lived long enough to know that small matters were often of the greatest consequence. Congre- gated atoms formed masses, and confluent streams formed rivers. (Hear, hear.) He hoped that his hearers would not think his subject of too little importance, and that they would kindly give him their attention. He would not ask any one to coincide with him in his opinion— (hear, hear)-but his remarks would probably be of great advantage to many, especially to his young friends. Mr Lewis then read his paper as follows:—The subject for discussion on the present occasion is one of considerable importance In this district of country, where we are sub- ject to rain and wind from the south and west, and cold winds In the winter from the north and east, with occa- sional falls of snow and some frost from the same points, while, as a general rule, the farmsteads and yards are wholly inadequate to afford house shelter to the horses. sheep, and cattle, which the land is able to carry. It, would not be difficult to account for this lack of house and yard shelter, arising as it does from various causes, but I do not propose to treat of these matters as they might be, but simply to take them as they actually are. It is by no means unusual to hear strangers, whilst speaking of our small inclosures in this neighbourhood, remark on what they call the waste of land occupied by the fences, and it is perfectly true there is a large quantity of land occupied by the fences, much more than is actually necessary; but I purpose showing presently that it is by no means necessary all this should be wasted. It is quite proper that the size of the inclosures should be regulated by the size of the farm or holding, and the circumstances of its being arable, meadow, or pasture. In the former case each field should be of the size required to be broken up from lay or pasture for one description of crops, and of course it is desirable that each field should be as near the same size as possible. In meadow and pasture lands the enclosures may possibly be smaller, but should be re- gulated by the number of stock to be kept on it; as a large number of cattle in a small inclosure will tread down as much grass as they eat, especially in wet wea- ther, as they are said under such circumstances to have five mouths, whilst a small number in a large field will not answer, for obvious reasons. However, before I take up the thread of my discourse where I digressed into the sizes of the enclosmes, perhaps it may not be amiss to consider for a moment the quantity of land actually oc- cupied by our hedges or fences. On one hundred acres of land divided into ten fields, or enclosures of ten acres each, which is very much larger than the usual size of fields on farms of that extent, the fences under the best management will occupy about two and a half acres of ground, whilst, if the ditches are not kept clean, and the side of the hedges trimmed, as we too often see them to the extent of two yards on each side, seven and a half acres will be occupied, and when the growth extends further than this into the field, as it too often does, a proportion- ably larger quantity of land is wasted. If the same quantity of land be divided into twenty enclosures of five acres each, the hedges as above will occupy about three and a quarter acres and a nine and a half acres respec- tively, and these five-adre fields will be found to be larger than the average size of fields in small occupations. From this calculation I think it may be fairly estimated that fully ten per cent. of the land of the country is oc- cupied by the fences and their surrounding useless growth, whilst, if the fences were properly made, and kept pro- perly trimmed, none need be wasted. But to resume. Our fences we must have, for the sake of the shelter and shade they afford, but perhaps we do not require so many as there are at present in some neighbourhoods, and when a useless one exists, it pught to be taken away, the ditches filled up, and the ground levelled, and either cropped or sown with grass seeds. The proper number of fences being arrived at, next comes the more immediate subject of our discussion, viz., the care and management of them. This should be so ordered that each fence should not occupy more spacethan is actually requisite. As a general rule, each fence at its base should cover in width six feet of ground, and when properly made should be six feat high and from eighteen inches to two feet wide at the topj with white thorn, hazel, willow, or holly planted in the centre, about from two to two and a half feet from the top, according to the age and size of the plants, and these should be kept properly trimmed, so as to grow thick, and form, as they can be made to do, an almost imper- vione lateral barrier to the wind and rain, and a sure preventive to that one of the greatest cusses (as our American brethren would call it) a slovenly farmer has 'to contend with, viz., cattle breaking pasture, and be what it is intended to be, the crown or finish of a perfect fence, affording at the same time (as I have before hinted at) the greatest amount of shelter to cattle in wet and stormy weather. Now, the base of this fence being composed of the outsides of sods taken from the surface of the adjoin- ing land, will produce on enck side, if kept properly trimmed, certainly more than half as much as an equai number of square yards of the surrounding ground, or together a superficial surface fully equal to the land occupied by the hedge itself. The sides of the hedge thus trimmed close will, in meadows and corn fields, yield a considerable amount of feed for cows or horsrs. Indeed I am quite afraid to say how much a clever agri- culturist residing within a hundred miles of Begelly, in this county, gets in this way every year. Thus, by proper care and attention to our fences we may have the value of the shelter, obtain a large quantity of valuable food for rearing our animals, and all this without losing a foot of ground, and what the value of that shelter is, is per- fectly well Known to every practically agriculturist who ventures abroad in wet or stormy weather, as every farmer who understands his business will do, 'and when he wiil inva/iably find his cattle standing with their tails towards the wind, under the fence that will afford them the best shelter. And, if they are the black cattle of the country, and the shelter good, in nine cases out of ten chewing their cud, and evidently quite happy and con- tented but if there be no such shelter, or if, from the fact that briers, thorns, or gorse, prevent their getting within shelter of the fence, you will find them standing with their backs in a hoop, their heads down, their under jaw perfectly still, no chewing the cud, and their whole appearance the very picture of misery and wretchedness. As a proof of the value of this shelter, I would instance the claims made on the Government by the owner of land in the neighbourhood of Sooveston, on the north side of Milford Haven, where a fortified barracks is being erected, and where the Bourii of Ordnance had given notice that they should, without purchasing the) And. require the fences which would come within the range of the guns to be pulled down, and that wire fencing would be substituted at the expense of the Government. The damage caused by this so-called clearage rights was estimated by various competent witnesses, (surveyors and others,) who were examined on oath before a jury. at about ten shillings per acre. I have hitherto assumed that the land spoken of was dry. When the contrary is the case, the ditches by the side of the hedges, when kept property cleaned up, form an admirable channel for the surface drainage of the adjoining field, which may be carried off through it to a proper receptacle. Indeed, our ancestors would seem to have understood this perfectly, as there is generally a fall by every hedge either one way or the other, and where such is not the case, it is perfectly easy to sink one end a little lower than the other. But here let me not he misunderstood. I have said that these ditches are convenient conductors for the surface drainage of the adjoining land, and so they undoubtedly are but for the surface drainage ot)]y. Underground drains should never be made to empty themselves into one of these ditches if it can possibly be avoided, but if from any cause it is unavoidable, then the end of the drain next the ditch should have a mouth formed of four stones, i.e., a flat one, the width of the drain at the bottom, a square one, or one nearly so, on either side, and another flat one, also the the width of the drain, resting on these, and then if it be a pipe or tile drain it should be filled for a yard or two from the mouth with broken limestone, or, what is perhaps still better, common field stones not too lurge, abundance of which may be found in any arable field in this district when laid down to grass. But not only on lands where the shelter of house and sheds is unknown is the shelter of a well-made or well-trimmed hedge valu- able and useful; but even where cattle have the advantage of these luxuries during the winter months, and only as summer approaches are turned into the pastures. How frequently does it happen that late in the spring or early in the autumn we have cold winds and showers of hail or rain, and then may be seen the aristocratic shorthorn or heavy Herefords availing themselves of the shelter afforded by a Welsh hedge. Indeed, the value of this shelter was so well understood by our ancestors, that it gave rise to a proverb well known in this country, which I have frequently heard applied in this way. When a young girl marries an old man she is laughed at by her unmarried companions and those of her own age; but it the husband had the reputation of being rich, or kind, or ijood, an aged sybil may be seen raising her withered finger and shaking her wrinkled brow whilst uttering the well- known proverb, 'Aye, aye, my maids, it is all very well for you to laugh, but remember, "There is good shelter beside an old hedge." The Chairman then said they would combine pleasure with amusement. He would therefore propose The healths of the Successful Candidates for Green Crops.' This was drunk with enthusiasm, and was responded to in suitable terms by Messrs Roberts and Young. The following gentlemen were then proposed as mem- bers of the society, viz.: Messrs T. Griffiths, Kingsmill; John Roch, Brownslade; John Davies, Alleston; and John Mathias, Kingston. The Vice Chairman next proposed The healths of the Judges of Green Crops, Messrs W. C. Rees, Upton, Davies, Alleston, and Mathias, Kingston,' The two former gentlemen responded. Mr Trotter, of Stackpole Court, said they were much obliged to Mr Lewis for introducing the subject of fences, which would certainly be an improvement, although he did not quite agree with him. He thought that hedges formed three feet from the ground, the top planted with thorns, and protected until they grew, would form good shelter for cattle at less expense; but cattle, to have proper shelter, should have homesteads erected for them. (Hear, hear.) The shelter of fences rnidlt do very well in summer, but was certainly not sufficient in winter time. The Vice Chairman said that Mr Trotter had recom- mended a bank of three feet high. If this were so, cattle in adjoining fields could look over, and when they saw their neighbours, they would be sure to get over to them. (Hear, hear.) Upon one of his farms he had four men for four months repairing the fences, which had been al- lowed to fall into decay. A stitch in time saved nine, and when the smallest damage was done to a fence, it should immediately be repaired. It would cost him Y,250 to have the fences put In order. He did not bold with Mr Lewis's shelter, as the animals should be in the middle of the field, where the droppings would make the grass grow. (Hear, hear.) If houses were built for the cattle, they would not require high fences. Mr Fincham said that Mr Lewis had said that the base of the fence should be six feet. In that case the sod on either side would produce herbage, and the fence being close, would prevent the wind passing through, whereas in a fence only three feet high, topped with thorn, the wind would pass through. Cattle were like men, they required attention and shelter. (Hear, hear.) Mr LRwis said he quite agreed with Mr Mathias that sheds and houses would be infinitely better than the shelter of hedges, but they must treat the matter as it was, and not as it might be. (Cheers.) Sheds were the exception, and not the rule, as the greater part of their homesteads were without such shelter. Mr Ma- thias knew the value of such shelter, and he perhaps provided them for his tenants. Mr Trotter bad spoken of a three-feet fence, with thorns on the top. It would take years for the thorns to grow, so as to form a good fence. [Mr Trotter Yes, it will take about six years.] During those six years the expense of a railing on either side, to protect the hedge until the thorns grew, would be immense. However, he bad read his paper for the purpose of provoking discussion. (Cheers.) Mr Fiocham said that under certain circumstances a good fence was a good thing, as cattle could not always be driven into a house during a temporary snow or other storm. (Hear, hear.) Mr Lewis then proposed 'The health of the Chair- man,' which was received with cheers and musical honours. Mr Clarke responded. The Vice- Chairman said that their next meeting would be about Christmas, and he thought The advantages or disadvantages of farmers leaving their holdings at Michaelmas or at Lady-day,' would be a good subject for discussion. Mr Fincham then proposed The health of the Vice, which was well received; and Mr Mathias briefly re- sponded. 7 Mr W. B. Roberts then proposed The town and trade of Pembroke, with the name of Mr Jonas Dawkins.' Mr Dawkins returned thanks. After some other toasts, the meeting separated at seven o'clock.
PEMBROKE-DO OK. THE GARRISON.-Col. A. F. F. Lennox, commandant of artillery for the South Wales district, has been granted leaye of absence until the 31st of January. Captain C, Carpenter, 7th brigade, Royal Artillery, will command the artillery in the garrison and the district, in 06 absence of Col. Lennox. SHIP REPAIRS.—During the last few weeks the ship' wrights at Pembroke-dock have been fully Several of the leading yards have been closed months, which threw the whole of the workmen out 0' employ. The Norwegian brig Gazelien has been on the beach for repairs, and the ship Gloucester, beloB?' ing to the firm of Lidgett & Co. London, brought here from France to be docked, and reclaesed. We are credibly informed that anothersb'P belonging to the same firm is hourly expected reclassed also. This is cheering to the inhabitants^ Pembroke-dock and its neighbourhood, as the sion of the shipbuilding and repairing business dtifiog the past summer has been a great loss to the place. PRIMITIVE METHODIST MISSIONARY Primitive Methodist Home and Foreign Misflion8'j Meeting was held in the Gershom Chapel, Pembroke-dock, on Monday evening, the 4th After a very excellent and stirring address had W given at the opening by the Chairman, J. Morgan, of her Majesty's Customs, the Secretary, Mr B- Paskoe, read the report, which was of a very encouraging nature, showing a large increase in the sphere of labo«r' preachers, teachers, and members during the past ye9'' as well as a very great financial increase. The dep»t8J tion was the Rev J. Hibbs, of Bristol, who gave soØld thrilling accounts of the difficulties, progress, success of the several labourers on the mission field, at home and abroad. After the congregation (which* are glad to say was a very respectable one) had addressed by several other gentlemen and ministers,'11, collection was made, which amounted to more double last year's receipts.
MILFOED. DEATH BY BURNING.—A inquest was held at '/? Police Station, Milford, on Wednesday, before 3- James, Esq, Deputy Coroner, on the body of Thomas, aged 90 years, whose death was caused W burning on Sunday last. A person who was in the of visiting the unfortunate woman, called at her resi^ on Sunday, and on opening the door, a dense came out. An alarm was raised, and some of the boura came, and on examining the room, found the b<w of the deceased nearly burnt to a cinder. The jury re- turned a verdiot in accordance with the above facts. RE-OPENING OP ST. KATHERINE'S CHAPEL, MIUO^J — On Thursday the 31st ult, the interesting ceremony the re-opening of St. Ivatherine's Chapel, in the town0, Milford, which had been previously closed for months in order to affect its complete restoration and1 introduce several improvements, took place. It *?. doubtless a source of sacred satisfaction, both to minister as well as the congregation, to be allowed e re-enter this their own sanctuary, and to join once wore in the edifying exercises of prayer and of praise. j were much gratified in observing how substantially creditably the whole work had been carried out the able but gratuitous superintendence of F. Esq, conducing so much to the convenience and of tbose who frequent this place of worship. morning congregation was numerous and highly spectable, for many had come from a considers distance to witness and take a share in the s0^eIL services of the day.
