LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. KJIGERRAN FAIRS were hrld on Tbursdur and Friday the 11th and l'2tli instant. There was a largo attendance of purchasers, and the show of horses and horned cattle was good. There was a large demand for horses and superior animals realised high prices: most of the horned cattle were sold at former rates. The second day the pigs and sheep were very numerous, and there was a large attendance of pig drovers from the adjoining counties Pigs exchanged hands at a very high price: sncklings two mouths old fetched from 15s to 20s each. The she p were more numerous than at tormer fairs, but very litile business was done. MORAVIAN CHAPEL FUND.—Tbc annual sermons in a:d of the above fund will be preached in the Brethren's Chapil, on Sunday next, by the Rev John England—in the morning at eleven o'clock, and in the evening at six o'clock.

EARLY HAY HARVEST.—Two fine crops of hay, the produce of two fields, on Portfield, in the occupation of Mr Whicher Davies. wererickedon Wednesday last. The crops were an usually heavy, and were in aremarkably fine condition. This is, we believe, the first crop harvested in this neighbourhood, but a few weeks of the present very favourable weather will make hay making general. The crops in the Bristol district, where hay making has commenced, are reported to be light, and in the English Connies, particularly the fit lauds, the hay harvest is said to be less than umal. In South Wales the yield is reported to be unusually plentiful, and a very profitable season is predicted for the Welsh farmers. TBS SUMMER CIRCUITS OF THE JUDGES.

I MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF A CHILD.
MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF A CHILD. An inquest was held at the Horse and Jockey Inn, Portfield, on Monday, before the Coroner, J. W. PhiliipII, E'q.and a jury, on the body of Elizabeth Harding. sped six and a half years, who died under the circumstance detailed in the following evidence: The iJury having been sworn, The Coroner said: We are assembled here to-day to ascertain the circumstances connected with the death of a I the child, Elizabeth Harding. When the case was first reported to me, I had great douht as to the necessity of holding ab inquest; but, on taking the opinion of Mr Vaughan James, the Corpner for the Lower Division of the County of Pembroke,' whose experienoo in Ithcse matters is mueh greater th-an mine possibly can be, he advised me that where there were any suspicions on the part of a medical man that the symptoms were those of poisoning,—perhaps I ought not to say suspicions- but where in the opinion of a medical man symptoms of poisoning were exhibited, then it is the duty of the Coroner to make an enquiry; and for that reason we are called here to-day. You will hear what the medical man has to say upon the question, and then probably we shall be able to come to a definite conclusiou as to the cause of the child's death. The Coroner and Jury then proceeded to view the body. Upon their return, the following witnesses were examined: Mary Davies deposed: I am the mother of the deceased, who was six-and-a-hulf years old. I last saw her alive on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock. I was present at her death. She went from me at dinner-time on Wednesday to Mr Whicher Davies's hay-field. I was not willing for her to go, but she begged of me to allow her, as her aunt was there, and I left her go. I next saw her on the Course between six and seven o'clock: she was staggering as if drunk. There were five little girls with her, and one of them also very drunk I carried the deceased home and put her to lie on the bed. She fell asleep, and was sick twice. What she threw up appeared from the smell and colour to be clear porter. She throw up a considerable quantity and, fell asleep again. She slept until half-past 10 o'c ock, when I took her up, and asked her if she would come down to her aunt's, where she always slept. She seemed in a 'so>r,' and sleepy. She said 4 Yes.' I carried her down to my aunt's, undressed her, and put her to stand. She said, I can't stand, mammy.' I asked her if she would have anything tb eat: sho said 'No.' She never spoke again. I put her to bed with my awnt. I went home, and between two and three o'clock I was sent for by md uncle. The deceased was on a neighbour's lap, quite straight. I."poke to her, butsho took no notice. Her teeth were locked tight on her tongue, and her eyes were half closed. Now and then her body would stretch out and be quite stiff. She seemed to be in great pain. A I mcdical man was sent for: Dr Brown did not come, but sent a powder. We put the powder in her mouth with some sugar: it was diffioult to open her mouth. She became very much worse afttr this: her arms were heating and her head shaking, and her teeth knocking together. This was about seven o'clock. I went home, and returned again, and was with her the greater part ot the time till her death. Dr Rowe came about half-past 10 o'clock in the morning, and she became quieter. She .died quite easy. Her general health had been good. I cannot tell for a certainty that she actually swallowed the powder. About half an hour or three quarters after taking the powder, she became uneasy. I think she must have thrown up more than a pint of porter: what she threw up when Mr Rowe was there was not of the same colour: it was yellow in colour. She had not taken any dinner before going to the hay-tield: I had nothing pre pared, and she would not wait. Martha Sayce deposed: I shall be 11 years old on the 17th of August next. 1 knew the deceased. I was with her in the hay-field. Mary Mathias gave us some beer and porter mixed out of her cup. Mary Mathias drank out of it, and then I had a sip, and then the deceased bad about a mouthful which was left in the cup. We found a can or porter and beer mixed in the hedge behind the hay-rick. There was another little girl with us. She opened the can, and we had two cups a piece. The deceased said she had had no dinner, as her mother had not baked bread. I had the same quantity of beer as the deceased. I recollect falling down on some straw because I could not stand. Alter the deceased had one cup, she said t-he must have another as she had had no dinher. We never gathered any berries from the hedges. My aunt gave the deceased some bread and cheese, after we had the first sip ot porter. We drank the two cups ot beer hastily for fearot being caught. I vomited the porter after 1 came home, but I was not biek. Dr T. H. Rowe deposed I saw the deceased on Thurs- day last. I found her in bed lying on her left side. About quarter of an inch of her tongue protruded beneath her teeth, which were tightly clenched. From the dried condition of the tip of the tongue, it must have protruded for a considerable time. She bad lock jaw, and her teeth were so tightly clenched that I could not open them. Her eyes were fixed and staring: the pupils were insensible to light. 1 touched the eye, but she did not appevr to feel it. She bad three or four slight con- vulsive fits in my presence, and the muscles became rigid. Her head was slightly thrown back, and her breathing was stertorous. There were rattles in the throat. I con- sidered her to bo dying and said so. Shu vomited in my presence a yelJow and greenish fluid what she first threw up was more fluid than the rest, and seemed more like porter: it appeared to be porter and bile. I applied mus- lard to the back of the head and the calves of the legs, and cold vinegar and water to the temples. I tried to yet her to swallow with a viow to administering something to her. I got her to swallow a tea-spoonful of cold tea, and at once seot for medicines. In my opinion she was suffering from the effects of some poison: the symptoms were sueh as to coirespond with those produced by anar- cotico-irrittint poison. There are plants growing in our fields which cause the same claes of symptoms. I have since made a post mortem examination. The brain was intensely congested. The stomach contained about a tea-cup of fluid similar to thnt thrown up in my presence: it appeared to be chiefly bile. There was nothing in the whole intestinal canal except a great deal of wind and feculent matter. The upper portion of the stomach was much inflamed. I found no poison. The deceased was weakly and delicate. I dont think the quantity 01 i o'cohol contained in the beer and porter would account for death. The chiid was comparatively empty. Another child was takun in the same way, but she was recovering when I saw her. Mary Mathias deposed that.she gave the deceased and two other little girls a sip out of her cup. She drank beer which was contained in a can, but she was unable to swear that it was the can from which the children took the beer. She did not hear thele was gin in the field: she drank durina the day two cups of beer including the one of which the children partook she felt no ill-effects from it. James Davies, step father of the deceased, corroborated the evidence given by his wife, and stated that after the deceased came home, he went to the liayfield, and drunk six or saven cups of beer there: it did not make him ill. There were no spirits mixed with it. This concluded the evidence. The Coroner enquired of Mr Cecil whether, if the enquiry were adjourned, it would be possible to produce any further evidence. Mr Cecil said that he could not produce any further testimf'ny. Those who were there did not remember what occurred, and he could not hope to advance the enquiry if it were adjourned. Thu Coroner summed up the evidence, observing that there was a great degree of carelessness exhibited in allowing the can of beer to lie about the hedges where children were present, and that it was a matter o! regret that medical assistance was not sought for much earlier than it was under the circumstances. The Jury returned a verdict to the effect that the death of the child was accelerated by drinking in a bay fidd a large quantity (,f beer and porter mixed ou an empty stomach. A Juror dissented from the verdict, stating that in his opinion death was the itsult of prison ing, but how pro- duced there was no evidence to show. The Coroner, having entered the verdict of the ma- jority, said that he cuiucided in opinion with the dis- sentlenl juryman. ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Satur- day before Copt. Child, and J. P. Jones,'Esq. STRAYING ON THE HIGHWAY. At the previous sessions Mr J. P. Jones preferred a charge against Thomas Mathias, of Lambston, of allow- ing his pigs to stray on the highway. The charge was dismissed by the Bench, and in reference to their decision Mr Jones to-day handed in a letter to Capt Child, with a request that he would read it uloud. Capt Child asked to whom he was to read it, as there was no magistrate present but himself. MrJ oneS said that he should like the letter read out, as the question asked in it was of some importance to the public. Capt Child then read the letter, in which Mr Jones said he should be glad to be informed whether a tenant of a farm having land on both sides of the road inclosed or uninclosed could turn out horses, pigs, &c., without a herd, and not be interfered with by the police. Capt Child said it was his opinion that the farmer eoultj, ao\ do so without a herd. Mr Jones: It was decided the other way last Saturday. This day week there will be another perjury case: a woman swore she could see through a wall: Mr Goode will send out his man to prove the matter. I only want every thing fair and above board. ASSAULT. Richard Walters, aged 13 years, was brought np in custody charged with assaulting another boy named William Gibby. Sergt Clarke stated that the complainant lived at Slebeeh, and was not aware that the prisoner had been arrested. A constable had been sent to Slebeeh, and had not returned. The Bench ordered the prisoner to be discharged, observing that the complainant could take out another summons against him, and the case could be heard at the next sessions. BREACH OF CONTRACT. Richard Griffiths, farmer, of Walwyn's Caatle, was summoned by Dinah Edwards, his servant, for breach of contract. The c mpiainant deposed that she hired with the defendant on the 11th of January to serve until the 10th of October for £4:. Her hand got bad, and she was unable to work. The defendant told her that if she did not do his work he would give her the smoothe side of the door, as he should not keep her to do nothing. He sent her away. She had received £1 4s of her wages. In cross-examination, she said she did go to Haver- ford west about her hand, but in consequence 01 being frightened at Portfield, she did not return till five o'clock the next morning. She did not go away and leave the house open, and no one in it. In answer to the Bench, the complainant said that she was hired to work in the house, and to milk the cows. The defendant said that the complainant engaged to do whatever she was required to do. The Bench said that the case was out of Court, as the complainant was not an agricultural servant. The com- plainant's remedy was in the County Court. Captain Child said that if the case went to the County Court, it would cost much more money. If the defendant was an honest man, he would pay the com- plainant the sum that was due to her without any further proceedings. The Defendant said he was quite prepared to pay her all that was due to her, but he did not owe her the amount claimed in the summons. She had received £1 4s, and the sum actually due was about 17s, and not £1 5s. The Clerk said that the facts were agreed to, and the question in dispute was one only of calculation. If the parties would call at his office, the sum would be correctly ascertained, and there need be no further proceedings. The Defendant expressed his readiness to pay what was really due to the complainant, and the case was then struck out.

Case dismissed. An appeal has recently been made in the columns of our contemporary, the Tenby Observer, requesting subscrip. tions towards defraying the cost of keeping the Castle Uiil promenade in proper order. That such an appeal should be made we were prepared for, but to further hear that it has not been attended with success we certainty were not prepared, for we qnote from the Observer of the present, week:—THE CASTLE HILL.—We have been disappointed in not receiving more subscriptions towards the improvement of this beautiful promenade, as surely no one can doubt but what it should be nicely kept, and that moro seats are required. The Local Board of Health will this year, and in future, keep the footways in repair, but it is not right any longer to allow a private person to bear almost the whole of the remaining expense. Within the last few years, this gantteman has himself paid upwards 01 £100 for making the roads, and keeping the grass cut. We need scarcely state how gladly con- tributions will be received at our office." We only hope that the inhabitants will rouse themselves, and not try to shirk what may be termed a duty. We have recently had an opportunity of witnessing the extraordinary effect of a newly discovered explosive. compound, which is particularly adapted to blasting purposes. Some of the advantages in possesses over gunpowder claimed for it by (he inventor, are that it can be used to blast, rocks without the necessity of first dri.ling hole*, that it is from eight to .ton times stronger than powder, that when the boring of holes is necessary the dimensions of the bore are much reduced, that it is impervious to wet and when almost saturated with water still retains its qualities unimpaired. The compound which was invented by Mr Nobel, of Hamburgh, also the inventor of the destruction nitro glycerine, is called Dynamite, but is known in America by the less' classical but descriptive name Of in appearance is like a mixture of variegated »andust und dripping atmoat without. smell, and altogether look.s n compound of the most harmless character. The rt-uK of th» experiments we witnessed however, entirely dissipated that idea. It, powers were first, tried on i largo block of stone lying on its fl it in the limestone quawns of Messrs Davies andx Roberts at the Black Rock. 0.. the top of the stone which measured some (; feet in lei^th -3^ deep and 4 across, about three-quarters of « p..mid ul the dynamite WNS placed, a smail quantity of dump clay was laid on it merely smoothed our by the band, a length of safety fire attached to a ptcu iarly formed capsule containing some detonating powder was introduced into the centre of the compound, and the outer end was ignited in the usual manner. All eyed were directed on the stone though at a safely respectful distance, and a loud report "oon testified to the strength or the powder. On approaching the block of stone we found that it had been perfectly shattered to piecce. quite fit to lay on tho kiln. The stone operated on weiglud some three or four toaf. It was next tried ip a hole that had been bored for gunpowder to the depth of four feet: into this a cartridge of about four ounces was placed, and on being fired rived the rock to a depth of five feet below the bottom of the bore. A three ounce cartridge was next placed in an eicht inch deep hole drilled into a block of stone weighing nearly ten ion. The stone was cleaved throughout, Au exami-, nation of the practise showed that In the oentre tW particles were almost pulverized, and did not at al present the appearance of rock which had been subjeCieo to the influence of gunpowder; whereas the gunpowdo upheaves and rends, cleaves, and separates the the dynamite seems to sbaiter and break np the roc regardless of the cleavage, as if some hnge Nasinyt wielded by unresistible power had been exerting on it «■ pounding force. Another great fbing in favour of JD0 new compound was the almost total absence of srooked The experiments which were made In tbe presence of with the-assistance of some half-hundred miners quarrymen, were considered entirely satisfactory, ProT'| beyond a doubt the immeasurable superiority dynamite over the 'compound of villanoua sa!tpe're hitherto in use. J. Cadman, E*q, of Bonville Co«»» who conducted the experiments, is we believe about establishing an agency in this county for its sale.
