Serjeant, M.A., of Saint John's College, Cambridge, the deputation from the Parent Society, will preach, morning and evening, at Saint Mary's Church and a sermon will also be preached in tho evening at Saint Martin's by the Rev J.

ACCIDENT.-As the Rev James Hartle, Wesleyan Minister, and Mr W. Phillips, of Market Street, were re- turning on Sunday night in a vehicle from Milford, where both gentlemen had been preaching, the former was very much injured by being thrown out of the carriage. The horse galloped down Dredgman Hill, and near Merlin's Bridge it kicked furiously. A trace waa also observed to be locse, but as the animal could not he pulled up, it was impossible to readjust the trace. Immediately op. posite Mr Richard Ellis's house, the horse fell, breaking the shafts, and Mr hartle, who was driving, W.1iJ thrown out. Mr Phillips managed to keep his seat, and escaped unhurt. Mr Hartle was cut and bruised very much, and it was some time before the rev gentleman could be con- veved to his home. It is hoped that his injuries are not of a permanent character, but some weeks must elapse before he will be able to resume bielduties. ROYAL PEMBROKESHIRE ARTILLERY MILITIA.- The permanent staff of this regiment were entertained at dinner at the Salutation Hotel on the 27th ult, by Lieut. Graham. The dinner was excellent, and was prepared with that great ability characteristic of the management at this establishment. After ample justice had been done to the good things: provided, the cloth was re- moved, and the usual loyal and patriotic toasts were duly pledged. Captain Edwardes (who had honoured the company with his presence) proposed in fitting terms the health of Col. 0-ven, which was received with great enthusiasm. The health of the officers was also well received, as was that of Major Willan, adjutant of the regiment. Lieut. Graham then proposed the health of the inon-commissioned staff, expressing his gratification in meeting them, and hoping that he might have a similar pleasure on a future occasion. Sergt. Major Brown ably responded, and while acknowledging the liberal hospitality which had been extended to them, said he trusted he should have the pleasure of congratu- laiing Lieut. Graham on his promotion to a Captaincy, if, (as was correctly reported would be the case), the regiment was augmented by the addition of two bat- teries. During the evening, several songs wero well sung by the staff, partioularly by Battery Sergt. Major Hicks, who greatly contributed to the harmony of the evening. The company separated at an early hour, one and all having heartily enjoyed themselves. EMPLOYKRS AND EMPLOYED. — On Whit-Monday the young people in the employ of Messrs.

LITTLE HAVEN.-On Whitmonday, this watering place was crowded with visitors, some of whom entered into a subscription, and raised a fund for prizes for equine contests on the sands. The races, though got up with little preparation, were excellent, and some of them were very closely contested.

At the fall of the flag, a very even start was effected when Blackbird went in advance, and made strong running, but bolted over the shingle, the favourite at the some time going the wrong side of a flag. From this point another pretty even start resulted, when CalanUie made very strong running but swerving to- wards the sea, let in the bird. on the return of Calanthe to the proper course, a fine race home ensuvd, Mr Watts landing his favourite huntress a winner by a short bead. The stewards were Mr J. M. Jones and Mr Goddard, who discharged their duties to tbe satisfaction of all parties. The difficult office of Judge was very ably filled by Mr W. Jones, of Haverfordwest.

John Penry Jones, of Sutton Lodge, wa* summoned by the Overseers of Lambston for non-payment of rates. Mr J. C, James stated that the rates had been paid by Mr Jones, and the case settled. STRAYING ON THE HIGHWAY. Thomas Mathias, of Lambston, was summoned by Mr J. Penry Jones tor allowing pigs to stray on the high- way. Mr J. C. James appeared for the complainant, and Mr Price for tbe defendant. The complainant deposed On the 22nd of May I saw the defendant's pigs on the highway between Lambston Fold and Rogerston on the Nolton road The road is enclosed by fences on each side. I called the attention of P.C. Price to the pigs. Ann Roberts also saw them. Cross-examined: I did not notice that the gate of the fold was opened by Mr Mathias's daughter: I did no see the gate open. The pigs were crossing from the grip of the hedge: two were in the road. There is a pice? of waste ground each side of the road: it might be a couple of yards in width. I don't believe there are eight yards of waste ground one side and four yards on the other The road passes over waste ground. When I first saw the pijjs they were on the bank, and afterwards in the middle of the road. The waste ground bi longs to Mr Bowen, of Camrose. I saw the pigs go off the road: the pigs were only on the road so long as they were crossing it. The Clerk, in answer to the Bench, saU he thought the complainant was out of Court The act of parliament reserved the rights of pasturage of the hedgos on tbe roadsice. Mr Price said bis client was the tenant of the land on both sides of the road, and had R right to the pasturage. The defendant's daughter was also there, and had the pigs under her eye the whole of the time. Mr J. P. Jones: I have seen the pigs there many times. Mr Harford: Is not Mr James, your advocate? You had better let him work the oracle for you. Mr J. C. Jnmes: The witness is now under examina- tion by Mr Price: I have only the right to examine and re-examine him, and I must do that at the proper time. I Mr Price: It often happens, sir, that we get a witness in the box who will talk lor himself, and the worse be makes the case for us., (Laughter.) j Mr J. C. James said he did nut think the case was out of Conrt. Mr Jones bad proved that the pigs were on the highway-the metal part, and there was no doubt they had no right to be there. Mr Price said that it was proved by Mr .Tones himself that they were only on the road so long as they were crossing it. Mr Jones re-called said The pigs were on the high- way they stopped a little bit on the road. By Mr Price: I did not see any person watching t},o pigs I swear I did not see the defendant's daughtei b the gate. Ann Roberts deposed I saw Mr Mathias's pi»s going along by the hedge, then by the road, and then crossing the road. I only saw them crossing the road. By Mr Harford: There was grass on both sides of the road. The Bench here stopped the case, observing that the evidence of the complainant was insufficient. Mr Price applied for costs, remarking that the pro- ceedings had been taken by Mr Jones after an applica- tion to the police, who had stated that they did not think there were grounds for an information against the defendant. The Bench said the case would be dismissed without costs. Each party must pay his own costs. Joseph Harries was fined 6rl and costs for allowing two asses to stray on the Fernhill road. Lewis Williams was charged with allowing a pig to stray. The defendant was fined 2s 6d and costs. ASSAULT. John Roach was charged with assaulting James Thomas. With the permission of the Bench, the case was settled out of Court. BOBBING A TILL. William Lcefar, a private in the 58th regiment, was charged with stealing a seapdisb, six postage stamps, and 7s 4d in money, the property of Elizabeth Mathias at the Gale, on the 31st of May The complainant deposed I keep a public house at the Gale, Neyland. On the 31st of May the prisoner came into the bar, and asked for a pint of porter. He gave me 6d to pay for it, and I gave him back 3d from the till. I left the key in the drawer cf the till, and went into the passage. I was speaking to two gentle- men there when I fancied I heard a noise as the drawep of the till was being opened or shut. I stood in the passage until the gentlemen passed in, and the prisoner walked out at the front door with the soapdish in his hand. That produced and its contents are mine. I shouted out at onre, and went at the same time to the till. Mr Buse went out and took the prisoner by the shoulder, & walktd him back with • h» money in his hand. The prisoner said he had done wrong und begged pardon. He put the dish of money on the counter, and I took it. He could have reached the till without going inside the counter. John Watkins Buse depospd About a quarter past eight o'clock on Sunday evening, I Wile at the bouse of Mrs Mathias. I saw the prisoner in if e bar as I passed through the passage. I had iust sat down in the par- lour, when I beard Mrs Mathias call out t at a soldier bad gone away with the money. I ran out of the house and collared the tddier. He had the soapdish with him and i." contents. I heard him mention that he was sorry for what he had done, and he begged Mrs Mathias's pardon. The prisoner in answer to the charge, said he knew nothing of it. Ti e Bench committed him to take his trial at the next quarter sessions. VACCINATION BY THE DISTRICT MEDICAL OFFICER.
