The Children of the school, taking the sing- ing on the occasion, sang exceedingly well. Mr Quick is a. deservedly popular preacher, and large numbers flocked to hear him on Sunday last. Toe collections were satis- factory. THUNDER STORM.—At mid-day on Tuesday, this town was visited by a severe thunder storm, which f,ortunately was of brief duration. The storm was accom- panied by very heavy showers ofyhail, and the lightning was vivid and frequent. Though the storm lasted but a few minutes, the hail covered the ground thickly, and •was sufficient when the thaw set it, to flood the channels la the streets. FAIR.—The rnnual fair was held on Tuesday. There ■W&3 a good supply of cittle, among which were some of excellent quality, whi;h sold readily at previous rates. For other descriptions there was little or no demand, and the majority of these remained unsold at the close of the fair. Then were some large pens of sheep on offer, but Che demand being very slack, there was little business transacted. The pig fair will be held to-day (Wed- nesday.)

TUB LATE MRS CHILDS.—Considerable gloom has f?revaded tbe village of Begelly by the melancholy death nf the late Mrs Childs, who died on the fifth inst. Her funeral, which took place on Tuesday, the 10th instant, was attended by many gentlemen who appreciated her worth which was well sustained by the number of poor that attended and their moistened eyes. They will long bave to lament the loss they have sustained in her charity and unflinching attendance at their sick bed, ad- Esinistring nourishment and consolation. THE REV CHARLES WHITE.—Rev Charles White, Baptist minis'er. stationed at Merthyr, has received an iaviu iioi to become the minister of the church at Corn- wall-road, Nutting-hill, London, of which the Rev J. H. Spurgeon, now co-pastor with his brother the Rev C. H. Spurgeon, of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, was pastor from the formation of the church, in 1863, up to the end cf last year. The chapel, though a plain structure out- Eide, is a very handsome and light-looking building within. It was built and presented to the Baptists by Sir Morton Peto, before the day of his adverse circum- stances set in, and holds about 1,000 people. PEMBROKESHIRE AND HAVERFORDWEST INFIRMARY — The Secretaries of this Institution beg to acknowledge with grateful thanks the receipt from the undermen- tiooed Freemen of Haverfordwest of the following sums, for the benefit of the Infirmary, being their portion of the funds arising from the Portfield Rents about to be distributed among such Freemen. £ s. d.

Thomas 2 0 0 SALE OF BREAD.—A notice has been issued by the Superintendent of Police, by the authority of the Mayor, calling the attention of buyers and sellers of bread to the sections of the 6th and 7th William IV. c. 37, which enact that all bread, with ceitain exceptions, shall be sold by weight. The penalty for selling bread In any other manner than by weight is any sum not exceeding lOs. Bakers and sellers are required to use avoirdupois weight, and to fix in some conspicuous part of their shops a. beam and scales, with proper weights, in order that the fcread might be weighed in the presence of the purchaser. Persons conveying bread for sale are required to carry correct scales to weigh the bread in the presence of the purchaser, and the penalty on the seller for refusing to weigh any bread purchased by him is any sum not ex- ceeding £5. The notice is likely to prove of great local fceuefit, for the sale of bread by weight is the exception .&s.d not the rule in this neighbourhood. PROSECUTION OF A FISHMONGER FOR POSSESSING FOIH. SALMON.—At Glasgow, on Tuesday, March 11th, before Mr Sheriff Galbraitb, Alexander M'Aliister, 15, Howard Street, fishmonger and game dealer, pleaded guilty to a charge brought against him by Mr W. Cowan, at the instigation of some of the leading anglers in Glasgow, for having had foul and unseasonable salmon (kelts) in his possession. The defendant stated that the fish bad been procured by him in ignorance of the Act, snd, as this was his first prosecution, he was fined in the EKtigated penalty of 10s with six guineas costs, The prosecutors stated that, as gentlemen interested in angling, they had resolved to use every meaus in their power to put a stop.to the too common practice of ex- posing for sale foul and unseasonable fish, as it is gene- rally understood that such fish are only taken by poachers. It is perhaps to be regretted that this prosecution, the source from which these fish were obtained under, was sot elicited. ORDINATIONS.

REPORT OF THE BOUNDARY COMMISSION. The following particulars in reference to the bounda. ries of local boroughs are extracted from the recently issued report of the Boundary Commission:- H VVERFORDWEST. The Haverfordwest district of boroughs consists of the contributory districts of Haverfordwest, Fishguard, and Narberth. In neither of these districts, however, are any extensions advised. PEMBROKE. The Pembroke district of boroughs consists of the contributory boroughs of Pembroke, Milford, Tenby, and Wiston. Concerning Pembroke itself, the parlia mentary and municipal boroughs are at present identical. On the north of Milford Haven, and opposite to Pembroke Dock, is the district of Neyland or New Milford, which contains the Terminus of the Great Western Railway, and is the point of departure fcr the mail packets for the South of Ireland. It is probable that building will extend considerably in this district, and the commis- sioners recommend that it should be added to the borough. With reference to Milford, the commissioners do not recommend any extension of the present parliamentary limits, as there is sufficient space within them for any probable extension of the town. The same remark is made with regard to Tenby, and no extension is proposed either for this district or Wiston.

Woodman. DESERTING SERVICE. Thomas Gambol, agricultural servant, was charged with deserting the service of his master,'William Williams, of Barn Lake. The case had been adjourned from the last sessions for the production of evidence. John Waters, a servant at Barn Lake, deposed that he lived on the same fare and had the same accommodation as the defendant, and he had no fault to find. The bed used by the defendant was a good one. On one occasion the butter was short, but since then plenty had been pro- vided. There were no superphosphate bags on the bed, but one night the rain came in through a hole in the roof, caused by a gale of wind, and the defendant him- self pat the bag on the bed to protect it from the rain. In cross-examination, the witness said that the bed was moved into another room because of the wet that came in upon it. There was straw beneath the bed, and that was wetted by the rain. The hole in the roof might have continued for three weeks. PC. Thomas Beynon deposed that he had examined the bed since the adjournment of the case, and that it was a good one. John Mathias, a farm servant at Barn Lake, was called by the defendant, and deposed that the butter was in- sufficient only on one occasion. He himself was quite satisfied with the food and accommodation. The Bench ordered the defendant to pay bis master X2 10s as compensation, and the costs; to be paid in a month, and in default of payment, defendant to be im- prisoned for two months. DRUNKENNESS AND RIOTOUS CONDUCT. Charlotte Dawson was charged with drunkenness and riotous^eonduet at Neyland. The defendant did not appear. P.O. George Webb deposed that he saw the defendant at Neyland on the 28th of February. She was very drunk, and curged and swore He endeavoured to remove her, when she jumped at him and attempted to scratch his face. He seized her by the wrists, when she bit him by the hand. The Bench fined the defendant 203 and costs, to be paid forthwith, and in default of payment, defendant to be imprisoned for one month. USING A CART WITHOUT A NAME ON IT. William Reynolds was charged with using a cart with- out having his name painted thereon. The defendant did not appear. P.O. Williams proved. the offence, and the defendant was fined 6d and costs. STEALING A BRUSH. Elizabeth Evans, of Little Haven, was charged with stealing a brush, the property of the Rev Stephen Brown, ofTaibenny The complainant deposed that be lost a brush from his house in January last. The letter B had been marked on the brush by himself. On Thursday week he went to the house of the prisoner's mother on busi- ness, and found the brnsh on a box there, and took possession of it. The B' had been partly erased. The prisoner was at various times employed on his premises. The prisoner said she took the brush, but intended to return it. The Bench said that the erasure of the letter 'B' looked as if she meant to appropriate the brush. The Complainant said he hoped the Bench would deal as leniently as they could with the prisoner. He had merely brought the charge forward from motives of public duty he had lost different things, and his object was to put a stop to such proceedings. The Bench committed the prisoner to jail for a month. Sergt Clarke stated that there was another charge against the prisoner—that of stealing a ring, but the prosecutrix declined to press the case. The Clerk said that if no evidence was offered, there was an end of the case. The Bench could be no party to any settlement of a case of that kind. The prosecutrix here came forward, and in answer to the Bench,'said she did not intend to offer any evidence in support of the charge. Sergt Clarke asked the Bench if they would make any order respecting the ring which bad been found. The Bench declined to make any order in the matter.

Pascoe (Primitive Methodist), delivered a lecture at Stepaside on Home Sweet Home," the Rev J. Williams in the chair. The Rev D. Mathias, Independent Minister, of Saundersfoot, opened and closed the meeting amid the greatest enthusiasm. The lecture, which treated on this subject, dear to the domesticated hearts of Englishmen, was listened to with the greatest atten- tion. The proceeds were in aid of the work of restora- tion which has been going on in the interior of the old chapel at Sardis, one of the oldest, and we may say most deserving of the very numerous places of worship which dot this part of our county. Votes of thanks were unani- mously accorded to the very excellent lecturer, and deservedly so to Mr. J. Canton, who stood at the receipt of custom, or in other words took the cash at the door. SAUNDERSFOOT PETTY SESSIONS, MARCH 10, 1868.— Before Dr Dyster, and H. Sanders, Esq -John Griffiths appeared to answer the charge of unlawful possession of property belonging to S. Darby. The complainant lost some iron ballast, and believing that Griffiths had it in his possession, obtained a search warrant, when the goods were found on board .GriSiths's vessel. The pro- secutor could produce no evidence to show a guilty knowledge on the part of Griffiths, who alleged that the ballast had been taken on board quite innocently, with the supposed permission of the deputy harbour master. The case was therefore dismissed.—Anne James charged Anne Stephens with using language towards her calcu- lated to produce a breach of the peace. Her husband entered into recognizance for her in the sum of X5, to be of good behaviour for six months, and was ordered to pay costs, 8s 6d.—James Rees was brought up on a warrant for disobedience of an order in bastardy made against him. Having no goods on which distress could be m^de% he was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, unless the amount, with all costs of conveying to prison, &c, were sooner paid.

MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT.—A very successful musical entertainment took place at the Royal Assembly Rooms on Monday week, the attendance being large. The ladies and gentlemen who took part in the concert were Miss Binfield and Mrs Marchant, Messrs Barnaschone, Tasker, Mathias, all of whom acquitted themselves exceedingly well. Miss Binfield and Mrs Marchant played a piano- forte duet in a very effective manner. Miss Binfield sang in her usual excellent style indeed we have naver heard her in better voice, the gem of the evening being her rendering of the beautiful song, 'Thou art so near and yet so far,' which quite electrified the audience, and was loudly redemanded. Mrs Merchant contributed largely to the success of the evening in her duet with Miss Binfield, and the song, 'I'll follow thee,' which was exceedingly well rendered. Mr Tasker created roars of laughter in his two comic songs, and in the comic duet with Miss Binfield he was irresistibly funny. Mr Mathias sang 'The March of the Men of Harlech,' and 'The Gentlemen of Wales,' and was loudly applauded. Mr Barnaschone sang 'Never mind the rest,' and 'John Brown' very nicely indeed in fact the concert altoge- ther was a decided success. We bear there are to be three more entertainments, which will bring the series to a close, on Monday, the 16th Thursday, the 19th; and Monday, the 23rd.
TENBY CORPORATION. i An adjourned quarterly meeting was held on Monday, the 9th instant, present-The Mayor, Aldermen Wells, Rees, Mason, and Jenkins, Councillors C. Allen, G, White, G. Mends, W. Gibbs, J. Gifford, and W. Rees. A letter was read from Mr Roberts, declining the offer of the plot of land at the Green Hill for £120, and a ) road to be made to the railway station from the Green Hill Road, but offering to make the proposed road and to give XGO. This was declined, and the question as to what should be done with the land adjourned to the next quarterly meeting. We believe that the Council are willing to grant Mr Roberts a lease on this land for thirty years, or or a building lease for seventy-five years, at a moderate rent, and the further consideration of the aforementioned road being made. The heads of the proposed agreement between the Corporation and the Tenby Iron Pier Company were read over, and ordered to be submitted for Counsel's opinion. Mr Thomas, who had been appointed to audit the Corporation and Board of Health account books, attended, and said that his report was not yet ready be, however, condemned the way in which the general district, gas, and water rate books had been kept. The Council then sat as a Beard of Health, when a warrant was signed appointing Head-Constable Thomas Inspector of Weights and Measures. Resolved—That, in order to improve Saint Julian Street, Mr Smith be offered £1 a year and permission to make a carriage road across the footway opposite Lexden House, for the small angle of his land that projects into the street. The meeting then broke up.

PEMBROKE STEEPLE CHASES.I
Stewards—N. A. Rocb, Esq, and Capt. W. Leacli, 45th Rsgiment. This annual meeting came off on Wednesday last under the stewardship of the above named gentlemen. The weather was something frightful, rain descending ia torrents throughout the whole of the day, and it was tbe unanimous opinion of the riders, owners of horses, and spectators, that they would much prefer being under cover and clothed in overcoats than ride on such a day in silk jackets. Notwithstanding, however, the inclemency of the weather, a large number of the sporting fraternity and the public assembled on thecourse, and took a great interest in the proceedings of the day, which were purely local* The course was confined mainly to two farms, Westraoof and Hodgeston, and was about four miles from Pembroke, near Manorbier, on the Tenby road. Two races were four miles each, and in these the horses had to trat'jjl twice round the course, and in our opinion a very four miles it was. The first race was THE HUNTERS' STAKES. Of £ 4 each, with X40 added £ 1 forfeit to the fund; fof horses that have been regularly bunted with an estab- lished pack of hounds, and not been in a training sfablfl for the last twelve months. 4 year olds, list; 5 year 12st; 6 year olds and aged, 12st 71b; horses that have never started for a steeple chase allowed 51b. OWf about three miles. st. lb. 12 7 Mr Lewis's Spaniel, aged (Flutter) t 11 0 Mr Hitehing's Tregantle,4 years.(J. Hitchings) 2 12 7 Mr T. Russell's Whip, aged .(T. Davies) « Spaniel led over the first fence with Tregantle and Whip in close attendance, but in the ascent to the cottsge. Whip took up the running at a strong pace, until they were out of sight. On re-appearing, however, Spaniel was seen in the van about 20 lengths, and as regards Whip we may here mention that his obstinate refusal at every fence threw him out of the race, much to the dis- appointment and disgust of the veteran Tom Davies, who is so universally popular in the neighbourhood, and be was soon after pulled up and trotted home. In this .order Spaniel and Tregantle raced along, about five lengths between them, and both full of running. The second time round both horses went off gallantly, Spaniel still keeping the lead and making the pace very hot, and ill this way they went until they got to the large roeadotf after passing the heavy ploughed field, when Hitcbioglf sent Tregantle along and nearly got up to his antagonist, but shortly after tiring off, Spaniel, who was throughout most judiciously ridden by Mr Flutter, won as he liked. in fact, walked in. a field in advance. The pace throughout was very severe, and had Whip gone on and Tregantle not tired there would have been a mag- nificent race. THE GARRISON CUP, Value £25, added to a sweepstakes of 3 sovseach. TirO miles. 10 3 Mr Kitchener's ch.g. (46th regt), Care- ful (Owner) 1 J2 2 Mr Donelan's br.g. (9th regt), Holy Bov.. (Owner) 2 10 2 Mr Allett's gr.g. (59th regt) Jack. (Owner) 0 11 10 Capt. Ford's b.m. (9th rest.), Miss Polly (Mr M. C. Donnelly) 0 After one false start Jack went off with the lead, pull- ing double, Miss Polly second, and Holy Boy and Care. ful close up. In disappearing round the cottage the? were in the same order, Jack still leading by half afield Mr Allett evidently meaning mischief. In this way they proceeded across the ploughed field and across the roea* dow, Jack still having a most commanding lead until they got to the back of Westmore when the Grey sud* denly disappeared from the van evidently pumped out. In a splendid race home between Careful and Holy Bofj Mr Kitchener, who rode throughout in a most marked manner, drew his gelding up, and calling upon him he answered true to his name, and won after a gallan struggle by six lengths. Miss Polly turned out a simile brute as the Whip in the former race, for after goic| about a third of the distance she obstinately refused her fences and was not persevered in. THE COUNTY MEMBER'S PLATE. A Sweepstakes of Y,2, with C25 added by J. B.

There were not five lengths between the three jumping the wai into Westmore farm, and in this way they proceeded the first time round, Spaniel having a slight lead. On turn- ing the red flag, Tregantle endeavoured to bolt, but wsa quickly sent along his course by the masterly handling of Hitchings, and was soon on good terms with his coo" peers. Pilot was piloted by the veteran Tom first over the next fence, and on reappearing from the cottage sty- kept the same position, Spaniel alongside, and nowhere, having just come to grief, which Hitchings to break his stirrup leather. The other ran at splendid pace along the large meadow field, were on equal terms all the way home, racing past West* moor house as if all Pembrokeshire were at eta e. Spaniel got his head first over the last fence, but in the race in Tom Davies drew up and both locked together* A splendid struggle and display of jockeyship ensued' which ended in a dead heat, amidst the uproarious shoutS of the populace. The owners decided to divide tbe and added money. A great deal of excitement at the conclusion of this race, as it was the opinion 0 several that Spaniel had won the double event head, but we confess that we cannot agree with t"1. opinion, inasmuch as the post opposite the judges being out of perpendicular, it would be impossible arrive at a discriminate judgment.
