LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. RIFLE MATCH.—A friendty match took place on the Haverfordwest Rifle Range on Saturday week between Privates R. I Jones and W. IJ. Jones, of the Haverford- west Volunteers, and Troopers W. Morris and<C. Thomas, of the Castlemartin Yeomanry Cavalry. The volunteers were victorious, defeating their opponents by 18 marks. COUNTY FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTs.-In the Honse of Commons, on Monday week,on th& motion of Mr Hardy. the SeteotCommitt"eonthis subject was nomiraated as follows:-Colonel Wilson Patten, Mr Scourfield, Mr Wyld, Mr Henniker-Major, Lord Henley, Sir W. Gall- wey, Mr Kendall, Mr Neville Grenville, Mr Bruce, Ad- miral Duncombe, Mr Hihbert,, Mr Hodgkinaon. Mr Kavanagh, Mr Read,, and Mr Heneage. SERIOUS ASSAULT.—On Tuesday evening week, a man named Alfred Rees, living at Xeestdfc, was assaulted by several men at Porlfleld, and beaten in a fearful manner. Rees had been at the fair, where be had some dispute with his assailants, who waylaid him in the evening, beat him, and left him almost lifeless on the ground. The unfortunate man, who was for a long time in a precarious condition, was removed to the Infirmary, and is now slowly recovering. On Monday, Thomas Jen kins, Cornelius Warlow, and Thomas Lloyd, farm servants, were brought up in custody of the police before T. R. Owen, Esq, charged with assaulting Alfred Rees. The accused were remanded till Monday next. ROYAL PEMBROKE ARTILLERY MILITlA.-The weather since the embodiment of the regiment has been very favourable, and out-door drill has been carried on with but slight interruption. Last week detachments were sent to Pater, where they went through a course of target practice with the heavy ord- nance at the Dockyard Battery. The practice was most satisfactory, and some of the gunners dis- played very great skill. On Wednesday the various batteries marched to the range of the Haverfordwest Rifle Volunteers, and underwent a course of musketry practice with the rifled carbine. The annual inspection will take place to-day (Wednesday). The regiment will muster at the Castle Square, at 12 o'clock, and at half past one march to Porifield. HAVERFORDWEST POLICE.-At the Police Office, on Tuesday week, before J. W. Phillips, Esq., (mayor), and Thomas Rule Owen, Esq, Thomas Beynon, a militiaman, was brought up under a warrant, charging him with I assaulting and beating one William Evans, at the Grey- bound Inn that afternoon. Prisoner pleaded not guilty. Complainant upon being sworn said: I am servant to Mr S. Williams, of Saint David's, and this afternoon I went into the Greyhound Inn, in this town: prisoner was there, and immediately I went in, he came up to me and said,' you are the man who made me pay sixteen and eixpence at Mathry,' and at the same time he struck me a severe blow in the face, causing my nose to bleed freely. By the Bench I believe what prisoner said had reference to my summoning him to Mathry Petty Sessions, for assaulting me at Saint David's, where prisoner had been employed as a labourer. In cross- examination by prisoner, witness said I did not call you a —— militiaman. Maria Griffiths, a charwoman, confirmed complainant's evidence in every particular. Prisoner, in his defence, said That he did strike com- plainant, but it was because he called him a —— militia- man. The Bench said they considered the offence fully proved, and that an example should be made, because prisoner and others we:-e in the militia appeared to think they could indulge in revengeful feelings, and assault any person, without being amenable to civil law. They should therefore sentence him to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for one calendar month, in hopes that such sentence would act as a caution to other militiamen. MARHIAGE REJOICINGS. — Great rejoicings were mani- fested in this town on Thursday last, on the occasion of the marriage of Mr W. P. Evans to Margaret, second daughter of Mr R. D. Jeiikins, of The Priory, and mayor of Cardigan. The rejoicings were owing to therespect in which the bride's father is held, he being the leading man in the place for many years, and in a. great degree to the amiable disposition of the.young bride. Prepara- tions were made during the week to celebrate the occa- sion in a joyful manner. Early on Thursday morning all was bustle, every one vieing with each other in making beautiful decorations. Triumphal arches spanned the several streets, adorned by flags,, evergreens, &c. The ceremony took place in Saint Mary's Church, and was performed by the Rev. Griffith Thomas, vicar, assisted AB,' Jenkins> BA-> Saint Ishmaels, brother ? ■* ri ^&roe concourse of persons had assembled to witness the ceremony, and a great number were out- side endeavouring to get a peep at the bridal party. T™nr.egA?0t?rS Rarty con8is,ed of Mr T. H. Rowe, Mr Ellett, Mr H. Owen Mr D. G. Davies, Mr Eaton Evans and Master L. H. Jenkins. The bridesmaids were Miss J enkine, Priory Miss Davies, Bank House Miss Evans, Miss Jenkins, Cilbrone; and Miss Jenkins Cheltenham. The ceremony being ended they proceeded to The Priory, where an excellent breakfast was pre- pared. The road leading from the church to the Priory was lined by the Rifle Volunteers, who had previously perambulated the town, headed by the Cardigan and Bronwyda blass bands. The ha.ppy couple left at half past twelve for Narberth, en route for the metropolis. In the evening, the rifl-* vrluuleers paraded the streets, preceded by the Cardigai- •sod Bronws dd brass bands, and visited the village < i saint D gmdts. At dufk boats, with lights in paper baskets, were moored in the rIver, and fireworks were set off during the night. Three b mfires were lit at Castellsidom, Cardigan Commons, aad Bryntirion Hill. A lively and attractive scene was S^en in High Str-et, where all was a mass of firewc rk. Several houses were illuminated. The proceedings ter- minated about eleven. We are sorry to state that the auspicious occasion was marred by an accidert. Persons w, re firing a camon (long unused), wl en it explode!, and was bio n to atoms. A piece struck M r John Esall, of the Hope and Anchor, on the arm, doing serious in- jury. A woman also received some hurt, but we are glad to state that both are in a state of conyalesccnce, THE LAW.—Mr F. R. Howell, sen of John Howell, Esq, Surgeon, Nine Wells, Solva, and articled clerk to Isaac D. Rees, Esq., Solicitor, Aberdare, successfully passed the 'Intermediate examination' at the Law In- stitute, London, on the 30th ult. STATE BALL.—By command of the Queen a state ball was given at Buckingham Palace on Friday evening, to which a party of upwards of 1700 was invited.

-BOOSE PETTY SESSIONS.
BOOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Saturday, before O. E. Davies, Esq, A. B. Starbuck, Esq, J. P. Jones, Esq, Capt, Child, and Rev P. Phelps. ASSAULT. David William., a labourer, was charged with assaulting 1 James Sanders, of Windmill Park. The defendant admitted that be seized the complainant by the neok, and he did so because he turned his donkey astray. The complainant said that the defendant accused him of turning his donkey astray. He denied doing so, and the defendant caught hold of him, and crushed him down in some culm, and squeezed his side against the stones which hedged in the culm. The donkey had been turned out from the stable by some men who came there with a horse, and he (complainant) finding it loose in the fold, went for the bridle with the intention of taking it to a field, and while he was away, the donkey got out into the road. Miss Griffiths, of Windmill Park, corroborated the complainant's evidence. The Bench fined the defendant 2s 6d, and with reference to the costs, askea why the police expenses were so much as 7s lOd. The Clerk stated that the charges were perfectly regular, and that the police expenses were paid to the county, with the exception of a small sum allowed thtl officers for personal expenses. Sergeant Clarke stated that the police fees were rather less than the regular charge, and that the constables re- ceived no portion whatever for their own use. The summons was served at St Bride's, and the officer, who served it, was in attendance at the Court, and would re- ceive not a farthing of the money. The constable had come from Marloes, and would not receive anything for expenses. The Bench observed that the defendant was a labourer with seven children, and on account of his poverty, it was desirable that the expenses should be reduced. The Clerk said the Bench had a discretionary power over the cots, but it was not a question in which the police were pecuniarily interested. The police expenses were paid to the county, and the ratepayers had the benefit of whatever money was realised by their services. The Bench remitted the police fees, and the costs were redueed by 7s lOd. The fine and costs, amounting to 13s, were then ordered to be paid in a month. Subsequently, Miss Griffiths, who had been allowed 3s as her expenses for attending as a witness, stated she would make the defendant a present of the amount, and receive nothing for her attendance.
HAVERFORDWEST PETTY SESSIONS.
HAVERFORDWEST PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Thurs- day, before the Mayor, J. W. Phillips, Esq, and T. Rule Owen, Esq. THE POLICE AND THE MILITIA, Capt Edwardes, of the Royal Pembroke Artillery Militia, attended the Court to make an inquiry respecting the apprehension of a militiaman by the police. He said,—One of my men is now in gaol undergoing im- prisonment under sentence of the magistrates. He was placed in the guardroom under my command, and with- out my knowledge was removed under a warrant by the police. He was taken before the Mayor, and was sent to gaol for a month. He was, I believe, drunk; but he was in our custody, and it is my opinion—perhaps I am wrong—that his removal under these circumstances by the police was quite illegal. I wish to ask the opinion of the magistrates upon the question? ( The Clerk: With reference to the question of Captain Edwardes, my opinion is altogether the other way. I may tell you that the Militia while they;are embodied are liable to the provisions of the Mutiny Act by reason of a statute of George the Third. The Mutiny Act only exonerates the military and Militia from certain civil proceedings, such as neglect to maintain bastard chil- dren-- The Mayor: And deserting service. Clerk It gives power to the magistrates in cases of the nature of criminal proceedings as contradistinguished from civil proceedings. Now an assault is clearly a criminal proceeding Mayor: It is a misdemeanour. Clerk: So also is drunkenness a criminal proceeding; I and the Mutiny Act does not exoneiate a soldier from the consequences of that offence, much less a militiaman. The Mayor: I looked at the Mutiny Act that afternoon, and there it says that the men be taken out of her Majesty's service for felony or misdemeanour. In the present case. the man had committed an aggravated assault, and was delivered up to the police by the officer in command. Capt Edwardes: Under a warrant. The only ques- tion is whether the police had a right to take him, for he was not their prisoner in the first instance. He was my prisoner. Clerk You might have said that he was your prisoner then, and that you would hand him over aeain; but there is no doubt that English law gives preeminence to the civil over the military powers. In this country they are very jealous of the interference of the military with the civil laws, and there is no doubt whatever as to the powers of the civil authorities in this matter. Capt Edwardes: We are very desirous to give every assistance to the civil powers but I fancy that the man being drunk and in custody, he ought not to have been taken away. Clerk; I presume that if he was brought before the Mayor in a state of drunkenness, the Mayor would exer. cise his discretion, and would not convict a man in that nonditioB. I know the Mayor too well to suppose for a moment that he would convict a man when he was drunk. The Mayor: He was quite capable of knowing what he was saying and doing. If he had been so drunk as not to know what we were going to do, 1 should have remanded him. Clerk: It is the wish of the superintendent, so far as is possible, not to deprive the regiment of the services of the men. There are a good many in the regiment whom we could put our hands upon at once, because they are wanted, but rather than deprive her Majesty of their services, we prefer to wait, and took for them another I time. So that we are really patient and longsufiering. (Langhter.) Mayor It can hardly be considered that the man was taken out of their bands he was delivered over to the police by the commanding officer. Capt. Edwardes Under pressure of a warrant. Clerk: The supt. went up there, and the man was handed over by the Major at once. The transaction was one of mutual accord. The Mutiny Act is exceptional legislation, and there is no doubt whatever as to the power of the civil authorities. The Mayor The best proof that it is exceptional Ie. gislation, is that the Mutiny Act is re-enacted every year, but it expressly states that a man may be taken out of Her Majesty's service for felony or misde- meanour. Capt. Edwardes then withdrew. ASSAULT. Seth Owen, a small boy, was charged with assaulting Thomas Symmond, an old man, residing at Shut- street. The defendant admitted striking the complainant with an acorn over the hat, and expressed his sorrow for having done so. The complainant said that about half-past eight on Sunday evening he was returning home from Chapel, 4if Wa8 s'ruc^ over the brim of the hat with uome- thing thrown by the defendant. He inclined his head as the thing w^s thrown, and thus avoided being struck in the face. He did not wish to punish the defendant, and was willing to withdraw the charge upon his con senting to pay costs. He was subjected to a great deal of annoyance, on the part of the defendant and other br.ys, who knocked at his door at night, and shouted after him, and he took the present proceedings with a view to put a stop to it. The Bench consented to the withdrawal of the case and the defendant's friends paid the expenses. The Mayor severely reprimanded the defendant, and warned] him of the consequences of a repetition of such conduct. The defendant had an aged grandfather who was ill in bed, and be would probably see the enormity of his con- duct by considering what he himself would feel if per sons came in and annoyed his relative in a sick-bed. REMOVING NIGHT SOIL IN THE DAY TIMB. James Morgan and William Lloyd were charged with removing night soil in the day time. Both defendants admitted the offence, stating that it was committed in ignorance of the law. The Bench fined each defendant 6d and costs. ASSAULTING A MILITIAMAN. William Flynn, a tramp, was charged with assaulting William Page, a gunner in the Royal Pembroke Artil- lery Militia. Tbe defendant admitted striking at the complainant, but whether he struck him or not he could not tell. He had been at a wedding, got drunk, and did not know what he was doing. The complainant deposed that he was going np Pren- dergast Hill on the 9th of May, when the defendant came after him and struck him in the eye- He had not not spoken to the defendant, or given him any provoca- tion. The Bench fined the defendant 10s and costs, amount* ing altogether to 18s 8d, which were ordered to be paid in 14 days. ■

Evans, with allowing two heifers to stray on the highway called Ridgway, on the 10th instant. i P.C. George Morris deposed: On the 10th inst, I saw two heifers straying on the highway about 2 o'clock and again at four o'clock, when defendant's son came and drove them into the field.

PEMBROKE-DOCK NAVAL MOVEMENTS.—On Friday afternoon, the blue jackets and the marines, belonging to Her Majesty's ship Revenge, had a march out into the country, headed by their excellent band. They were greatly admired in marching through the town. NARROW ESCAPE.-On Friday afternoon, a detach- ment of the 4th battery 7th brigade Royal Artillery, was' at target practice, with the Snider rifled carbine, at Lanreath. Gunner Haddaway had just stepped to the front to shoot when, by some means, the breech came in contact with his trousers, and the piece exploded, and the ball grazed the side of his head his hair also being singed.
M I 1.. FOR D.
M I 1.. FOR D. SERIOUS ACCIDENT.-A n accident occurred on the night of the 6th instant, on board the hulk moored off Milford, where passengers to Liverpool are usually placed to await the arrival of the steamboat. In the darkness of the night, and in the bustle of embarking, Mr Joseph John, of the Weary Traveller, Johnston, while searching for his nephew, who accompanied him, fell through the open hatchway into the hold, thereby sustaining grievous bodily injuries. We are happy, however, to learn that under the skilful care of Dr Griffiths, the patient is pro- gressing favourably. To leave a place of so much danger utterly insecure, surely indicates culpable negligence on the pirt of those whose business it is to provide for the comfort and safety of the passengers.

THE ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE…
THE ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. OFFICIAL ACCOUNT. The following despatch was received on Sunday r, by the Secretary of State for the Colonies :— THE EARL OF BELMORE TO THR DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM AND CHANDOS. Government House, Sydney, March 27. My Lord Duke,—It is my painful duty to inform your Grace that a most determined attempt was made on Thursday, the 12th of March, to assas- i sinate his Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh by a person named O'Farrell, who, I believe, has for some time past, and until six or seven months ago, been residing in the colony of Victoria. His Royal Highness on that day honoured with his presence a public picnic, which took place at Clontarf, on the shore of what is known as Middle Harbour in Port Jackson. This fete was given in aid of the fund of an excellent institution called the Sailors' Home, and admission to it was by tickets costing £ 1 and 10s respectively for gentlemen and ladies. About 1,500 persons were present, having been conveyed there from Sydney and the neighbourhood by water. It had been once postponed on account of the inclemency of the weather, and the day fixed for holding it twice altered so as not to inter' fere with the religious observances, first of the Jews and afterwards of the Roman Catholics, members of both communities being expected to attend in large numbers. His Royal Highness, attended by Lieutenant Haig, R.E., and the Hon. Eliot Yorke, and accom- panied by myself, and also by Lord Newry, Coct* mander, and Mrs Rowley Lambert, Commander Campbell, R. N., and by the members of Of family and staff, arrived at Clontarf at aboflt from ten minutes to a quarter-past two p.m., In the steamer Fairy, which has been placed by its owner at the disposal of his Royal Highness during his stay here. On landing we were met by the President, Sit William Manning, Q.C., by the Chief Justice, Sir Alfred Stephen, C.B., and by other members of the committee, and immediately proceeded to the lun' cheon tent. After luncheon, which lasted rather more tbafl half an hour, Sir W. Manning proposed the health of her Majesty, which was enthusiastically re' ceived. Immediately afterwards his Royal "High" ness quitted the luncheon tent, and, giving his arl11 to Lady Belmore, proceeded to another, placed at a short distance, followed by our party, and by a few other ladies and gentlemen. These tents were placed on a sort of flat plaill of liTiued extent, having steep rocks as a back" ground and the sea on its other sides. BehiD<j the tents, aud to one side of them, the grouDO wam rough and wild, but before them there waS an open level space of a few acres in extent* rather sandy in most places, but covered with short grass. Between this and the shore there is a thin fringe of gum trees. A considerable number of persons were walking about in this open space, and a Corroboree by some 300 Abor- igines had been arranged to come off on the ground during the afternoon. After leaving the ground, which his Royal Highness proposed to do I at an early hour, he would probably have pro- ceeded to explore the inlets further up Middle Har- bour, and then have returned to Sydney. As soon a3 the ladies had arrived at the tent I have before alluded to, his Royal Highnes9 called Sir William Manning, and walked avrllf in conversation with him across the open space. As he bad previously told me that it was b's ItJ tention to hand Sir W. Manning, as president of the committee, a cheque in aid of the funds ot the institution, T naturally concluded that he was about to do so then, which indeed was the case. I did not, therefore, pay particular attention to the movements of his Royal Highness, but walked slowly in the same direction, engaged in conver- sation with the Chief Justice, for about sixty or eighty yards, vvheu, I believe, I stopped and z, turned round towards the tent. Almost imfoe* diately I heard a cry from the other side of the clear space near the belt of gum trees, and on turning round saw a rush of people. I had heard no shots, and it at once occurred to me either that some game or the Coroborec was about to begin. Some one near me said The Duke is shot,' and another person, 'He is shot, and bits fallen down dead.' Just then some one I kne^ —I think Sir W. Manning himself-came up to me and repeated that the Duke was shot. I has not gone many yards when I met a number of persons carrying his Royal Highness between tbeIU towards the tent. I immediately saw that he vvaS not killed, and the expression of his face struck me at once as not being that of a person mortally wounded. I turned to precede him to the tent) and meeting Captain Lyons, R.N., of her Majesty'5 ship Charybdis, asked him to go and get ihe ladies out of it. Be hurried off at once, and by the I reached it only two or three were remaining it, strangers to me, whom I immediately ordcre. out, and I endeavoured to arrange some cushion3 to place the Duke on, which as scarcely done be* fore his Royal Highness was brought in. TLbe first thing I recollect the Duke saying W5S, Give me air.' The side of the tent was pulled up» and I took off his neckcloth and opened his shirt and underwaistcoat. Mr Eliot Yorke took from him at the same time several articles of value, sucn as his watch, &c, which he was wearing, his Roya Highness displaying meanwhile great self-posses' siou. Dr Watson, surgeon of lier Majesty's ship Challenger, was among the persons who carrie his Royal Highness to the tent, and Dr Po^el» assistant-surgeon of her Majesty's ship Galatea, and several medical gentlemen who were amon§ the company on the ground, were almost imnied1" ately in attendance, one of whom, Dr Wright, f°r' tunatelv had his instrument case with him. On bis Royal Higbness's dress being remove » the bullet was found to have entered half an inc from the spine, between the ninth and tenth rib > taking an oblique direction, and was found lodge about five inches from the umbilicus and»°" inches and a quarter beneath the ri>rht nipp having in its course traversed a distance of • inches. The shock was very considerable, a j was thought advisable not to remove the ball the time. a My aide-de-camp, Captain Beresford, started o in the Fairy to secure the attendance of Dr ^oU (surgeon of her Majesty's ship Galatea) at Govern ment House by the time the Duke might Lady Belmore and the ladies of the parties, acco panied by Lieutenant Fitz-George, R.N., fOllow"%Ir after a little time, a message being sent by Fitz-George to tbe commanding officer of Galatea to have the boats in readiness 0,1 °j*e arrival. Lady Belmore was just able to ge needful preparations made in a room on the grou floor at Government House before we arrive We were fortunately able to avail oursei the ser\ices of two of the trained nurses se e by Miss Florence Nightingale for the j-y .lufirmary, and who had only arrived in the s>
