THE CENTRAL WALES RAILWAY, A contemporary (Tlte Colliery Guardian) makes the following remarks in reference to the recent opening of the Cantral Wales Railway for general traffic:—"lu another column will be found the announcement that on Monday last the Central Wales Railway was opened for passenger and goods traffic. This line is in connection with the London and North Wes- tern system, and its opening is one of great com- mercial importance to the whole of the South Wales district, not only because the route to Liver- pool, Manchester, and the North is thereby shortened by 55 miles as compared with that of the Great Western system, but also and chiefly because the line will open up new outlets for the precreus black diamonds' of South Wales, which can now be forwarded to places from which hitherto they have been practically excluded, in consequence of the circuitous route and the heavy.eost of transit. It is not at all unlikely that very large quantities of steam coal from the South Wales basin will now find their way into the interior of the country, and to the large manufacturing dis- tricts of the north; and it may even become a question for the railway authorities and the col- liery proprietors to solve whether the steam coal of the Aberdare and Mertbyr valleys may not be profitably sent to Liverpool for shipment. Pro- bably one of the greatest benefits which will result to the whole commercial community of South Wales. from the opening of this new channel of commu- nication will be the more effectual breaking of the monopoly of the Great Western Railwav which has hitherto existed, to the detriment of commerce and the almost entire exclusion of the coal traffic from the midland and northern counties. It is a matter of serious complaint agains; the Great Western Com- pany thai they have not developed (he traffic of South Wales as they oirditto have done, nor have they met the enterprising spirit of the colliery proprietors and iron mrkars with corresponding facilities for traffic on their par". With a little wholesome competition by means of the new line opened on Monday last, better tbiugs may be reasonably boped for. One oi the first fruits of the competition is that the Great Western Com- pany have just advertised a general reduction of fares between the whole of the South Wales district and the midland and northern counties. A reduction in the charges for the conveyance of coals and other minerals will probably soon follow." The following is the paragraph referred to in the foregoing notice :— Oa the 8th inst. the through narrow gauge communi- pAtioa with JJoutb, Wales was opened. The railway arrangements with the greater part of South Wales were previously an awkward system of broad and narrow gauges, which necessitated inconvenient chances in the journey. A Shrewsbury paper says that the opening of the remaining section of the Central Wales Extension Railway, from Llanwrtyd to Llandovery— a distance of eleven and a-half miles-completes the last link in the through communication between the London and North-Western system in England, and the lines which connect Swansea, Llanelly, Carmarthen, and Milford. The great natural advantages of the Haven at the latter place, and the importance ot more completely developing, and bringing within the scope and reach of English enterprise and capital, the vast coal-fields and other mineral treasures and resources with which that portion of the Principality abounds; in a word, to place the minoral wealth of the western side of South Wales nnd the coal-fields near Swansea and Llanelly in direct communication with the northern and midland districts of England, by a narrow gauge railway, had long been recognised. The break in the hitherto existing com- munication occurred between Craven Arms, Salop, and Llandovery, Carmarthenshive, a distance of fifty-nine and a-half miles. The former lay on the direct route to Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, and Liverpool, by the London and North-Western Railway; while the districts of which Llandovery was the terminus had direct com- munication with Llandilo, Carmarthen, Llanelly, and Swansea, by meaDS of the Vale of Towy Railway.' The fares of the London and North Western, as will be seen from an advertisement in another column, are exceedingly moderate, and are in striking contrast with those formerly charged by the Great Western. The price of a third class ticket for the journey from Carmarthen to Liver- pool, is only 13s 7d to Manchester, 14s -id and to Shrewsbury, 8s 9d; and the advantages of the new line to the trade of this and the adjoining county will be the more apparent when we state that one may leave Carmarthen at 6.45 a.m., and arrive at Liverpool or Manchester shortly after two o'clock in the afternoon.
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. BACHELOR OF ARTS.—In the list of those upon whom the degree of Bachelor of Arts was conferred at Oxford on the 18th inst., we observe with much pleasure the name of Mr John Meares, eldest son of the Rev S. O. Meares, of this town. MRS GKAITAN GUINNESS.- This lady delivered two addrt,a-;es at the Tabernacle Chapel in this town on Sun- day last. Notwithstanding the unfavourableness of the weather the chapel was filled to overflowing on both occasions, and many were unable to gain admission. The sermons were very impressive and were listened to with great attention. PEMBROKESHIRE BATTALION OF VOLUNTEERS.—This battalion was inspected on Portfield on Monday by Sir Edward Campbell, District Inspector of Volunteers. The volunteers mustered very numerously, and passed a most successful inspection. Sir Edward complimenting them highly upon the efficiency with which they per- formed the field movements. IMPROVEMENTS IN GAS MANUFACTURE.—It was stated at the fifth annual meeting of the British Association of Gas Managers, last week. that upwards of twenty new appliances in the manufacture and distribution of gas wbre introduced last year. Among the foremost of these was the plan of using a mixture of small coal with shale oil, as a substitute for cannel coal, for the production of gas light of high illuminating power. I: RITUALISTIC LANGUAGE.—The Rock of the 12th instant has the following paragraph :The Rev Edward Fellowes, of Haverfordwest, in a letter to the Guardian comment- ing on the Rev Dr Littledale's outrageous abuse of the Reformers, remarks that Ritualistic language is not always discreet; not long ago a brother priest told him he was' d- awkwnrd,' because he would not fall in with some frivolous Ritualistio practice.' CHURCH MISSIONARY SOCIETY—Sermons in aid of the Church Missionary Society, were preached in the churches of St Mary and St Martin on Sunday week, by the Rev J. Serjeant, M.A., the deputation from the Society On Monday a public meeting was held at St, Mary's School-room, when E. T. Massy, Esq, in the absence of the respected Vicar, (who we regret to say is suffering from ill health,) presided. Toe attendance at the services and public meeting was numerous, and the collections on each occasion very satisfactory. HAVERFORDWEST VOLUNTEERs.-The annual prize meeting of this Corps will commence on Monday, the 27th of July. This appointment was made at a meeting of the Committee on Monday evening, when a resolution was passed, directing the Secretary to communicate with the donors of speoial prizes, and to solicit a continuance of the support accorded by them to the previous meetings of the association. As soon as replies are received respecting the special prizes, the programme, which, it is expected, will be as attractive as any former one, will be issued. ADDITIONAL MAGISTRATES FOR BRECK.NOCXSMIRE— The following gentlemen have been recommended by the Right Honorable Lord Tredegar, Lordlieutenant, to be appointed Magistrates for the above County, and having been approved of, the Lord Chancellor has caused their n.1mes to be inserted in the Commission of the Peace:— William Anthony Bowler, of Tytley House, Essex, James Buckley, of Bïyn-y-Caerau, Llanelly, James Augustus Francis Snead, of Pwll Court, Esquires: Philip Howel Morgan, M-A., Rector of Llanhatnlach, and Rees Price, B.D., Yicar of St. David's, Brecon, Clerks. FISHERY PROSECUTION -Two men were charged before the magistrates at the Canterbury Petty Sessions last we"k with fishing for salmon with a draft net in the River Stour without a licence. The case, which was the first, prosecution in the Stour district under the Salmon fishery Act, created a great deal of interest. Mr Fielding prosecuted on behalf of the Stour Fishery Association. Evidence was given which clearly proved the offence on the part, of the defendants. The magistrates found the charge proved, and ordered the defendants to pay a double licence of £10 each, together with a fine of XI each and 7s costs, or in default three months' imprison- ment. TESTIMONIAL TO GOVERNOR EYRE.—The unrelenting persecution which Governor Eyre has been subjected to, has only served to increase the ardonr of his friends, who have now determined to present him with a testimonial in token pf their estimation of his services in the suppression of the Jamaica Rebellion. A central coumiittee has been formed in London, and sub committees are in course of formation throughout the kingdom (or the collection of funds. Haverfordwest has resolved to take part in this movement, and several sums have been promised in aid of the proposed testimonial. Subscriptions will be received by the following gentlemen :—Mr T. J. White, Market-stieet; Mr R. Williams, Dew-street; and Air John James, St Martin's Crescent. MORAVIAN CHAPEl, FUND,-Sermons in aid of this fund were preached at the Brethren's Chapel, St. Thomas Green, on Sunday last—morning and evening—by the Rev John England. Both services were well attended, and the rev. gentleman (who had visited this town in aid of the same cause a few years ago) preached with his usual earnestness and power. On Monday evening the rev. gentleman delivered an entertaining and instructive lecture on "High Days and Holy Days," at the Shire Hall, the proceeds of which were applied in behnH of the samtJ fund. The chair was ably filled by W. Owen, Esq, of Withvtiush. A vote of thanks to the rev gentle- man for iiiti a.,I.. lecture was carried with great unanimity on the propo n'on of Dr. Davies, seconded by the Rev James Will'jui.-j ;,tid a sioailar compliment having been paid to tin- Chairman, the proceedings terminated. THE IIAY HARVEST.—Mr Isaac Roberts, of Merlin's HilJ, roowtt i a i.itirr Held of meadew hay on the 15th inst., whi-'h M .< brought in in the best possible condition on the 19r.:<. Mi Roberts has informed us that this it the first u;ne for many years that he has harvested ths crop from this particular field without, a fall of rain. lie states that the tall of rain during the time his crop wae lying out was up to the present year the subject of fres quent observation, an it had become a local saying tha- it would be sure to rain when Mr Roberts cut his hay.' This year, us we have already intimated, Fortune smiled upon Mr Roberts, and reserved her frowns for some of his neighbours. We are requested by Mr Roberts to state that he attributes the reverse. of ill luck to the cir- cumstance of his having changed his single life to that of a married one since the last hay harvest, and he is of opinion that the selection he has made of a partner has fui'y propitiated the Fates, who now regard his bar- vest operations with greater favour than they did in the seaaons that are past, FATAL ACCIDENT.-An Jnqoest was held on Monday evening week at Skerry Ford, before-the Coroner, W. V. James, Esq, on the body of Ellen Griffiths, aged 71 years, who came by her death in consequence of injuries received In a hayfteld, on Wednesday, the 11th instant. It appeared from the evidence that the deceased was rn the act of placing a stone behind the wheel of a cart irr the hayfield, when the horse backed, knocked her down, and trod on the side and breast of the deceased. She was at once picked up and was put to bit down, the deceased remarking that she would get better directly, and requesting those about her to let her alone. She was subsequently taken to her home, where she died on Saturday night. Dr T. H. Ro-we, who bad attended the deceased, deposed that, being called to see her on the Wednesday, he found that her right collar bone and two ribs on the left side were broken. Death was the result of injury to the lungs arising from inflammation caused by the pressure of the broken ribs. The jury re- turned a verdict of Accidental Death.' LOYALTY IN PEMBROKESHIRE.—At a recent meeting of the Pembrokeshire Baptist Association, it was resolved by the ministers and delegates to forward an address to Her Majesty in reference to the late attack upon the life of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. The Chairman, the Rer T. Davies, of the Haverfordwest College, has received the following reply from the Secretary of State:— ",Whitehall, lOlh June, 1868. SIR,-I have bad the honour to lay before the Queen the loyal address of the Ministers and Delegates of the Pembrokeshire Association of Baptist Churches in re- If renceto the atrocious attempt upon the life of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh; and I beg to inform you that Her Majesty was pleased to receive the AddrestI very graciously. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, GATIIORNE HARDY. The Rev. Thomas Davies. D.D, The College, Haverfordwest." ODD FELLOWSHIP—On Tuesday week, the Loval Dun- gleddy Lodge of Odd Fellows of the Manchester Unity and their friends held their anniversary at Cross Inn. The Brothers assembled at the Lodge-room at half-past nine o'clock, a.m., and (after certain preliminaries) formed in procession and, headed by an excellent brass band belonging to the Lodge, proceeded to Clarbeston Church, where a very eloquent sermon was preached by brother the Rev T. Thomas, P.G., from Joshua, 23rd chapter and llth verse, after which they returned to the lodge- room where a sumptuous spread of roast and boiled awaited them, prepared in the best style of the hostess. After the cloths were removed, the chair was taken by the Rev T. Thomas, of Clarbeston, and the vice chair by P.P.G M. John Thomas, E.q. of Crundaie House. The usual loyal and patriotic costs were given and vocife- rously received, the chairman taking the opportunity of remarking on the gallant services of the army in Abys- sinia. The Vice-chairman then proposed the health of Brother Joshua Watts, the G M. of the district, who responded in a very nest and effective speech. Brother B. Clarke, P.G, in responding to the toast of his health, proposed by P.P.G.M the Rev J. Williams, said that although circumstances had arisen which prevented his attending the Lodge as often as he would wish, yet his affection was not in the least abated, and he was always elad to meet an Odd Fellow whenever or wherever he might fall in his company. Song and toast followed each other in rapid succession, and the meeting broke up at an eariy hour, everyone being highly gratified with the day's pleasure.

CRICKET.—THE JUNIOR CLUB V. EARLY CLOSING CLUB. I — A match between these clubs was played on Portfield on the evenings of Tuesday,Wednesday, and Thursday in last week. The Early Closing eleven first handled tho bat, but quickly succumbed for the small total of 25 runs. The Juniors were more successfu' in their innings, scoring 64 runs, to which T. Baker, R Williams, and A. James principally contributed. Ttie Early Closing had a repetition of ill luck in their second innings, in which the total score was 19, and were, therefore, defeated by their opponents in one innings with 20 runs to spare. The following is the score:- EARLY CLOSING ELEVEN. First Innings. Second Innings. W. Thomas, c Thomas b R. Williams 1 b R. Williams 0 S. Mason, b Baker 0 b R. Wiliiauis 0 R.

On Thursday the llth instant, a well was sunk under the superintendence of Mr Morgan Evans, near the old Bridge, in a field kindly lent for the purpose by Mr Henry Davies, auctioneer. The sinking was begun about seven o'clock in the evening, and beiore niglu the pump was attached and the whole work suece.-siully completed. So simple and rapid is the process that it is frequently finished in half an hour wher^ there is no accident or obstruc- tion. A large number of gentlemen from the town and neighbourhood attended to witness the experiment, and were, evidently much pleased with the successful tiial of an invention, which has the charm of novelty and that of utility as well. The 'well' was simply an iron tube, inch in diameter, with a steel point, and per- 4 forated near the bottom to a height of two feet. By the aid of a I dr-ving monkey of about 70 pounds weight, it was forced into the ground and penetrated each successive stratum with the greatest ea-e. Water having I been found in the tube by a simple process of testing, the patent pitcher pump was screwed on and an abun- dant supply of water was oMained. This well, "icb 1fØ about nineteen feet in depth, remained in the$eld fof public inspection until it was taken np on SaJurdaV afternoon in the' presence of W, Walters, Esq, backer'? G. James, Esq, Woodson; T. M. Watts, Esq, DaJry Park; Messrs Mary church and Daw; Messrs Rose ami Taylor; Messrs Edtnond and Rees; Messrs D. Lloyd, T. John, Henry Davies, Alfred Beynon, John Vaughan, and several others. On The previous day a well had been successfully sunk for W. Rees, Esq, as his residence at Broad haven, where a eopious stream of good water was raised! at a depth of twenty-two feet. Ths object of this invention which proved' of invaluable service in the recent Abyssinian expedition, is to facilitate the testing for, and obtaining water quicker, cheaper, and purer than by the tedious and expensive processes hitherto employed. Water can be obtained by it in many cases where well-digging would fai'lyas, for instance in quick- sands. WaSer thus procured is- free from all atmospheric influences, surfaue drainage, sewage, cess-pool leakage, and animalcule evils which are frequently found in the common, old fashioned dug wells. The tube well is, we believe, an American invention and was first used in the late American War. The patentee for the United King- dom is Mr J. L. Norton, of London, and we understand that Mr Morgan Evans, of Mabus, has been appointed sole licensee for this county. We congratulate Mr Evans on the complete success which has attended the introduction of this extraordinary invention into Pem- brokeshire.
ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS.
ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Saturday before A. B. Starbuck, Esq, J. P. Jones, Esq, Cant. Child and the Rev P. Phelps, STRAYING ON THE HIGHWAY. John Davies was charged with allowing a horse to stray on the highway at the parish of Steyntou. The defendant did not appear. The Bench fined the defendant 5s and costs. ASSAULT. Richard Walters was charged with assaulting William Gibby. The complainant deposed that he lived at Lawrenny On the llth instant he was going along Merlin's Bridge when be met the defendant, who had insulted him on many previous occasions. He spoke to him about his abusing him, when he came up against him and he øhov. d him off. The defendant then hit him in the back of the head with a stone. The blow cut his head, and stunned him. James Mathias deposed that Gibby went to the de- fendant, and spoke to him about his having previously abused him, and told him that if he wanted to fteht he would fight him. Gibby shoved him off, and Walteis hit him with a stone The defendant said that Gibby struck him, and he threw the stone at him, but did not intend to hit him. He was sorry he had thrown the stone, bat Gibby had com- menced the row by striking him. The Bench dismissed the case. ASSAULTING THE POLICE. William Jenkins, labourer, was charged with assaulting P.C. George Webb, at Neyland, on the 18th of March. The defendant denied the charge. P.C. Webb deposed that at midnight on the 18th of March he received information that a row had occurred at the Commercial Inn, Neyland. On going to the house he saw two men fighting: he told them not to fight, and he was thrown on his back by another man (who had been fined at a former sessions), and the defendant jumped upon his chest with his knees. The defendant cried out, Give it to the After a little while he got up, and the defendant made a rush at him, and he was obliged to draw his staff in self defence. The de- fendant kicked his hat about. The defendant asserted that he went to the assistance of the policeman, and that he did not j imp upon him. The B- ncli lined the defendant 5s and costs, in default of payment, one month's imprisonment. VAGRANCY. Mary Davies, an old woman, who was accompanied by a little girl of about five years old, was charged with vagrancy. A police constable stated that he had found the ,1p- fendant at Spittal iu the middle of the night, iviuc down in the roid. UU"B The defendant said that she camo to Haverfordwest to visit her daughter, and went for a walk towards Spittal, accompanied by the iitsle girl, who was hergranddaughter. The child got tired aud fell asleep, and she was unable to bring her home.. The Bench discharged the defendant.

™ E NB\ REV. H. GRATTAN GUINNESS—This celebrated preacher on Monday, Tuesday, Rnd Wednesday evenings, delivered eloquent addresses to large and attentive congregations, in Tudor Place, commencing at seven p.m., and in the Baptist Chape) at. 8.30. Many of those who were present at the former meeting were not, we fear, in the hahit of attending any place of worship, Mrs Guinness also preached in the Baptist Chapel on Wednesday evening. ENTERTAINMENT.—A farewell entertainment, by special request, was given at the Royal Assembly Rooms on Monday evening week, by Sergeants Ansell and Hewson, 9th Regiment, assisted by Sergeant R. 8. Tucker, Mr C. H. Tasker, (organist of St. Mary's) and Mr Joe Griffiths, Pembroke Dock. The programme, which consisted of reading, recitations, and (with a single exception) comic songs, was exceedingly well gone throusth. Sergeant Ansell's songs, which were sung in character, obtained immense applause; we must make especial mention of Betsy Waring' and 'Good bye John.' Sergeant Hewson was equally successful in his recitations, and we really bardiy know which to admire most, his humorous ren- dering of 'Sergeant Buzfuz's Address to the Jury,' or the pathos with which he gave Hood's I Bridge of Sighs-' Sergeant Tucker was very amusing in his selection of readings, especially the • Boots at the Swan.' Mr Joe Griffiths sustained his reputation in 'The House that Jack Built,' and Lodging-house Cat' Mr C. H. Tasker, who undertook the arduous task of presiding at the pianoforte throughout the evening, in his usual manner sang the I White Squall' and What a wonderful scholar was lie., When we say that almost all the songs were encored, it is almost unnecessary to add that the whole affair was successful. We had almost omitted to mention that the Yeomunry hand, with the kind permission of their Major, Baron F. De Rutzen, exerted themselves to please the audience with selections from various com- posers. The entertainment closed with 'God Save the Queen.' INSPECTION OF THE CASTLE MARTIN YEOMANRY CAVALRY. 00 Thursday afternoon this corps was inspected in a field at Knightson, about two miles from Tcnby, by Major rhesiger, 6th Iniskillen Dragoons. The whole of the evolutions were very creditably performed, and to the satisfaction of the Inspecting Officer, who congratu- lated the Commandant, Major Baron F. de Rutzen, upon the efficiency of the corps, of whom he should have much pleasure in making a favourable report. A large con- course of people was on the field, the weather being delightfully fine. In the evening a competition for the best horsfg was held on the racecourse contiguous to the town, when a large sprinkling of the sporting fraternity put. in an appearance. There were some splendid charters on the ground. ThA jung-cs were Col. X. Peel, and the inspecting officer, Maj,>r TheMiger, whose awards appear to have given satisfaction. The following were the successful competitors, viz, 1st prize, ZC6, Trooper T. Gwfther, A Troop, Tarr; 2nd, £ 4, (Sergeant R- Morris, C Troop, Honton £4, Trooper J. Gibbon, C Troop, Vaynor. The three 2nd cla's prizes of X,2 each were won by Corporal Wm Morris, C Troop, New House; trooper 1'. Lewis, A Troop, Iveston; and Quartermaster Llewellyn, C Troop, St Krenox. These prizes were given by the commandant, Baron do Rutzen. in the evening the officers entertained a large number of gentlemen at dinner at the head quarters, Coburg H.o<.e!, the catering of the worthy hostess, Mrs Hughes, skiving much satisfaction. The band of the regiment, under the direction of Mr T. W. Thomas, played some excellent selections cf music during the banquet. On Friday last the interesting ceremony of presenting a sword to the respected commandant, Major Baron • de Rutzen, by the troopers, was performed at Tenby« prior toj the dismissal of the corps from their anBl^e training. The whole corps assembled, on foot, at South Parade, from whence they proceeded, bead^ their excellent band, to Saint Julian Square, where tn sword and belts were presented to the Baron by oldest non-commissioned officer in the corps, Q,nar,^ Master John Griffiths, who, upon the occasion, 109(16
