He was working at the Moat W ocd, and was at the time of the accident engaged with o-hers in placing a large piece of timber on a wagon, when the chain snapped, and the timber fell on the poor feliow and killed him instantly.

An immense pile of fire wood was collected together and also tar casks for making a bonfiie, which was lighted at seven p.m. by Miss Evans, of Clogyfrane. The fire had an imposing effect, and could no doubt be seen at twenty miles distance. A large quantity of ale was dis- tribute 1 amongst the company who assembled (about 300), and the health of Mr and Mrs Fisher drunk, also that of Mr and Mrs Philipps, and with a sincere hope of his speedy recovery from his present illness. The health of the agents was also drunk. The proceedings throughout were enlivened by appropriate music. At the close of the proceedings the two National Anthems were sung, and the company parted at about ten o'clock. NIGHT POACHING.—On Wednesday morning, between seven and eight o'clock, as some gentlemen from this tONn were going to bathe in the headwaters above the Haverfordwest M ills, they observed a net lying across the mill leet, just above the old slaugh'er-house, with several fish fast in it. On examination the net was found t) contain a fine sea trout or brochin, weighing 2-libs., and five sewin, of about a pound each, fast in the net. The net had been placed right above the opening into the sluice, and across the leet, so as to in- tercept whste-er fish might attempt to go up the river. This object was most effectually accomplished by the capture of these fish. The net was a drag net, and was so constructed as to prevent any fish from getting loose after once becoming entangled in its meshes. No doubt the net had been placed in the water over night, and had not been visited early enough by its owner to secure it before it was discovered as above mentioned. The net and fish were brought into town, and delivered to the Board of Conservators, by whom the net was at once condemned, and along with the fish confiscated. It is a pity that the person setting this net was not caught doing so, as unless such poaching is put a stop to, there w.U soon be no fish of any kind whatever in the river.
BAVERFORDWEST QUARTER SESSIONS.
BAVERFORDWEST QUARTER SESSIONS. These sessions were held on Friday, at the Shire Hall, before W. Owen, Esq, James Bawen, iisq, John Harvey, Esq, T. Rule Owen, Esq, and the Rev James Philipps. The Cleik of the Peace informed the Bench that he had received a letter from the Chairman stating that he was detained in London by particular business, and would not be able to attend. Mr W. Owen was unanimously appointed Chairman for the day. NEW MAGISTRATE. R. D. Ackland, Esq, of Boulston, qualified as a magis- tratq for the Town and County of Haverlordwest. The names of the Grand jurors having been called over, it was found that only eleven gentlemen were in attendance. The Clerk of the Peace said that at the last assize, at which there was no business to be transacted, the Judge directed that the. Grand Jury should not be sworn, observing that it was not necessary when there was nothing to come before them. The Chairman, (havingintimated that the Court would follow the direction of the learned Judge), addressed the Jury. He said: We have 110 reason to complain of the attel. dance of the Grand Jury on these occasions, as they are generally very punctual. I suppose it is pretty well known that there is no criminal, or other business, to be brought before them, and that no doubt is the reason why the Jury did not attend. If there had been any business to transact, I have no djubt they would have been in attendance. There is no occasion to detain you, and I have much pleasure ia discharging you, and beg to thank yon in the name of the county for your atiendance. COTTFTTY ACCOUNTS. The Chairman said that there was a balance in the hands 01 the Treasurer to the amount of JE143 13s of which £ 130 would be rc-q .Ired before the next quarter. The Clerk of the Peace also stated that the proportion of the expenses of the jail amounted to £ 63 18s 9d. The Chairman said that the Treasurer had applied for a county rate of l|d in the X, which would amouut to ±181. An order was made for the levying of a rate of l i-d in the X. THE CORONER'S BILL. On the Coroner's bill for holding certain inquests, being presented to the Court, Mr James Bowen stated that he should in future object to the item of 2s 6d charged as fees for services performed by the police. He had objected on principle to the payment of the sum in the County, and he should make the same objection with regard to Haverfordwest. He considered the police were sufficiently paid, and he did not see why any charge should be made for their services as fees. The Rev J. Philipps: If that be the case, Ishall move that the half-crown be struck out of the present bill. Mr Cecil: It does not go into my pocket nor into the pockets of the police. As a matter of form it comes into my hands, and passes out again. Mr Harvey Is it a prescriptive fee? Mr Cecil: Yes, sir. Mr Harvey: You don't object to that?—it is a fee for particular service. Mr Bowen: There is a fee allowed in the county for the summoning officer, but it is appropriated, and is not paid over. Mr Harvey Who is the summoning officer? Mr Cecil: Myself, or one of the men. Mr Harvey: I think the fee ought to be paid. Rev J. Philipps: I object to it. The men ougbt to be paid, and if 1 had power I would propose an increase of salary to the officer. Mr Cecil: We get no fee: it Is paid over to the Treasurer. Mr Harvey Do you get anything for it? Mr Cecil: Not at all. It is paid into the hand of Mr Hughes, the Treasurer. It goes to the superannuation fund. Clerk of the Peace: It is paid into the Treasurer of the Borough, and not to the Treasurer of the County. Rev J. Philipps: It goes to the Corporation fund, and is for the benefit of the Corporation, and not of this County. Mr Harvey: It is a prescriptive fee; surely you don't oppose that ? Rev James Philipps: Yes, most decidedly: T oppose it with my heart and soul. Let us be distinct. There is a memberof the Corporation here, but I don't address him as a member of the Corporation. If we are a town and county, let us be a town and county. Mr Harvey I don't think that is the question at all. The question is whether the police, who are not over- paid, are to have a superannuation fund or not. It is a prescriptive fee; it has been paid for many years, and is handed over to the surerannuation fund Rev James Philipps: The question is whether we as magistrates of the Town and County of Haverfordwest, and as trustees for the ratepayers, are to allow money to be paid over to a fund, over which we have no control, be its, bject what it may. Mr Bowen I propose that the fee be knocked off. Rev J. Philipps: I second it. Mr John Harvey I propose, as an amendment, that the fee be not struck out. Mr T. Rule Owen I second it. Chairman What is the practice, Mr Summers ? Clerk of the Peace In the County it is paid to the high constable, and is handed back to me. It goes to the superannuation fund. Chairman I think it is a legal payment and ought to be allowed. Mr Bowen withdrew his motion, and the fee was all-wed by the Court. The Clerk of the Peace read a list of fees, relating to the Coroner's Office, agreed to by the Court in 1851, which included the item which had been the subject of discussion. M r Cecil stated that some months ago an inquest was held at the Railway Station, and he incurred expenses in bringing witnesses from Milford, which the Court had refnsl d to allow him. The man was injured on the railway, and was brought to Haverfordwest, where he died. An inquest was held, and he went to Milford for the witnesses, and incurred 9s 6d expenses in paying their fares to Haverfordwest. When he presented the bill to the Court, it was rejected, and he himself had to bear the expense. 1 he Chairman inquired whether the money had not been paid by the Corporation ? Mr Cecil replied in the negative. Mr Harvey Was it refused with that explanation ? Mr Cecil: Yes, sir. Mr Harvey I think you ought to have been paid. The Chairman expressed a similar opinion, and the other magistrates concurring, an order was made for the payment 01 9s 6d to Mr Cecil, for expenses incurred under the circumstances explained by him. COUNTY RATE COMMITTEE. At the October sessions in 1867, a county rate commit- tee was appointed, consisting of four magistrates. Mr Harvey drew attention to the matter, and expressed the opinion that the Committee was improperly constituted. The Clerk of the Peace referred to the Act which directed that the committee should not be composed of more than 11 nor less than 5 justices, three to form a quorum. Alter some conversation the following gentlemen were ap- pointed the Committee :—W. Stephenson Owen, Esq, W. Owen, Esq, S. Harford, Esq, W. Walters, Esq, Geo. Rowe, E-q. Thomas Rowlands. Esq, James Bowen. Esq, John Barvey, Esq, T. K. Owen. Esq, R. D. Ackland, Esq, and Rev. James Philipps, The first meeting of the com- mittee was ordered to be held at the Shire Hall at 12 o'clock on Saturday, the 4th July. The Court then adjourned till Saturday, the 1st of August.
RECOGNITION OF THE REV CHARLES…
RECOGNITION OF THE REV CHARLES WHITE, LATE OF MERTHYR. The services in connection with the settlement of the Rev. C. White as pastor of the Baptist Church in Corn- wall-road Chapel. London, commenced on Sunday week by sermons by the Rev J. Kneed, of Acton, and the Rev J. A. Spurgeon. On Tuesday morning week the Rev C. H. Spurgeon, of the Tabernacle, preached a very eloquent sermon from Collossians i., 18t.h verse, on the pre-eminence of Christ. There was a large and highly respectable congregation, and a goodly number of ministers was also present. At two o'clock the friends sat down to a very sumptuous dinner in the Schoolroom, at which the Rev C. H. Spurgeon presided, and speeches were delivered by the Chairman, the Rev J. A. Spurgeon, Rev G. W. Lewis, Rev S. Manning, and other friends. At five o'clock, a public tea meeting was held, which was largely attended. At seven o'clock the beautiful chapel was filled with a congregation of about a thousand persons. The Rev W. Roberts, B.A., of the Congregational body, offert d up prayer, after which the Rev J. A. Spurgeon took the chair, and introduced the business of the evening, by expressing his satisfaction at the selection of the church in appointing Mr White as his successor. The senior deacon, Mr W Knight, stated the reasons which had in- duced the church to invite Mr White. The Rev. Josephus Bailey, of Pontypridd, then delivered an ad- dress, in the course of which he said he had known Mr White &11 the time he had been at Merthyr, and he could bear testimony to the respect in which he was held. The church at Merthyr was a respectable church, which had bad a succession of able ministers, and Mr White sustained the character of the church with credit to himself and profit to the people. The friends in Wales had not sent, them an angel, but they had sent them a man. Mr White had a man's head, and a man's heart. He could think and speak like a man. and his heart was full of tenderness and love. He exhorted the church to receive him in the spirit of Christianity, and to give Mr White all theaympnthynnd moral support which his office and age required. Mr White then gave a statement of his theological viesvs, in which he disclaimed any attachment to the dictum of rr en, and claimed the liberty to form his opinions from the Word of God. He believed the Bible, and if any man could help him to understand that book he should be glad of such aid, but he could not give hia faith to Calvin n(,r any other man. He was in favour of independent churches, and the disen- dowment of all forms of religion. The Rev W. Br »ck, of Bloomsbury Chapel, then as- cended the pulpit, and delivered a masterly charge to tke minister, in which he pointed out the difficulties of the mfhister, and asked for the sympathy and progress of the church. of the church. The Rev S. Green, of Hammersmith, offered the 'ordination prayer after which, The Rev Dr Angus, President of Regent's Park College, gave the charge to the ohurch. He said the j 'church wanted more faith in the truth, mere love amongst themselves, more prayer for the ministry, and more work for the conversion of the world. The Rev Dr Underbill, Secretary of the Baptist MIs- sionary Society, the Rev G. W. Lewis, and several other gentlemen having spoken, the meeting separated about nine o'clock. We are glad to learn that the congregation is rapidly increasing under Mr White's ministry.
ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS.
ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Satur- day, before T. Roberts, Esq, A. B. Starbuck, Esq, J. P. Jones, Esq, and W. Owen, Esq. CHARGE OF STEALING A NET. Thomas Davie. was charged by F. W. Doublcday with stealing a net. Mr Plice, solicitor, appeared for the accused, who denied the charge. The complainant deposed On the evening of the 29th May 1 lost a net from Broad Haven Sands, where 1 bad set it to take sewin. I saw it floating on the water the next day about half a mile nearer Druidstone: it bad got loose in the rough weather. My initials-, F. W. D.' -were branded on some of the corks. The next I heltrd of the net was that the accused had it. W.J Griffiths, of Haroldston Mill, deposed: I went to the prisoner's house. I saw the net: it is Mr Double- day's. He said be took it up on the sands. The prisoner said he did not know whose net it was until I told him. I made the net for Mr Doubleday. Cross-examined by Mr Price; lie at once admitted he bad the net, and said be took it up on the sands. When I told him it was Mr Doubleday's he said be would give it up if be were paid for his trouble. I know that there is a good deal of troublo in rescuing a net from the sea. The prisoner said that he thought at first the net be- longed to persons at Punch Castle; he enquired of them and found it was not theirs. The Bench dismissed the case, remarking that they saw no reason whatever for bringing it to the Court, and expressing their regret that they could not order the complainant to pay the accused's costs. Mr Price said that his client had been always willing to give cp the net if he were remunerated for his trouble. NFGLECT TO VACCINATE CHILDREN. James Couzens, Elizabeth Banner, and Martha Rees, all of Freystrop, were charged hy Dr Griffiths, medical officer tor the Millord District, with neglecting to have their children vaccinated. Cozens said he had two children, both of whom were suffering from a rash, and for that reason he did not have them vaccinatod. Rees said that when she registered the birth of the child, the Registrar promised to send her a notice, but. had never done so. She had not brought the child because she was from home. On Friday she brought the child for the purpose of being vaccinated, but the doctor declined to do so. Banner said she received the notice at the time of registration, and the matter had escaped her recollection. Mr M'Cornagby, an assistant with Dr Griffiths, said that One of Cotizins's children was in a fit state for vac- cination. Notice was given of the time of the medical officer's attendance at Freystrop Cross, and a person in charge of the defendant's child was told that it must be brought for vaccination, and that if it were not the de- fendant would be summoned. The child was net brought, and the defendant was summoned. Mr J. P. Jones said that the doctor did not always attend at the time appointed, and he thought it was rather sharp work to adopt tho present proceedings. The Bench fined Couzens 6d and costs, and adjourned the cases against the other defendants till next week. INSPECTION AFTER VACCINATION. John Rees was charged with neglecting to bring his child for inspection after vaccination. On the part of the defendant, it was stated that the child was brought tor inspection, but Dr. Griffiths would not look at it, because it came late. This could be proved bv the little girl who tool, the obild. Mr M'Cornagby w as understood to say that the child was not brought until a fortnight after vaccination, and then at so late an hour that Dr Griffiths was obliged to leave for another station without inspecting it. The case was adjourned for a week. In answer to a question from the Bench, Mr M'Cor- nagby said that the next appointment for the visit of the medical officer to Freystrop Cross was two o'clock en Friday, the 10th inst. BRKACH OF THE PEACE. Margaret Thomas was charged with a breach of the peace by Elizabeth Thomas. The defendant, in answer to the charge, said that the complainant's son provoked her by pelting stones into her house at her grandson. The c omplainaiit deposed that on Monday evening the defendant called three times at her (complainant's) door,, and threatened to beat her son. She told the defendant not to do so, and the defendant called her a nasty stinking aod that she was a —— to a long one. Mrs Martin and Mrs Allen proved that the defendant used abusive language to complainant. The defendant applied for an adjournment of the case till next sessions to enable her to produce a witness. The Bench granted the application, and the ca?e was accordingly adjourned.

ENGLISH OPERA COMPANY. — Our musical readers will be pleased to hear that Mr Henry Manley's Eng- lish Opera Company will appear for a few eights at the Royal Assembly Rooms, commencing Monday, July 13th, with 'The Rose of Castile.' MRS GUINNESS preached on Sunday evening week at the Royal Assembly Rooms, and on Monday at the Baptist Chapel, South Parade, to large audiences. Great as is Mr Grattan Guinnesses popularity, we almost think M rEI Guinness bids fair to be an ami able and successful rival. CAUTION -On Tuesday evening week, after the workmen had left St. Catherine's Island, it being low water, several boys got upon the rock to see the defensive works there now in course o! erection, when one of them lifted the pall or click which falls between the teeth of the windlass to prevent its revolving backward, when the heavy chair descended wilh great velocity to the beach. Fortunately no one was struck by the handles of the large wheel, otherwise a fatal accident might have been the result. No persons are allowed to inspect the works during the absence of the workmen. DASTARDLY OUTRAOB.-On the night of the 25th ult. some miscreants went to the boat belonging to Evan Derby, pilot, cut the lug sail off from the rigging, and cut it in small pieces. A like outrage was committed on the same boat about six months ago, and all efforts to bring the offenders to justice were unsuccessful; but we hope the police will be suecessful this time, for with such scoundrels at large no person's property is safe. We are glad to hear the inhabitants f Saundersfoot intend to make up the loss the old man has sustained. CORONATION DAY.—Monday week >f'oronation Day, Tenby was visited by mem hi r* t 1 h Odd Fellows Society of Millord, who arrived heir 1 »p^cial train at 11 o'clock. They perambuiftted the town in procession, headed by the Milford Volunteei t 's< hand, and pre- ceded by the bannerol the order.

Nor has an ioflux of visitors been the only result of this fine weather. The agricultural crops are in fair progress, and a great deal of bay has l been already stacked. Neither must we omit to state that, from the situation of Teaby on a rock jutting oat I nto the sis, we do not suffer from those extreme and -uSbcating heats generally prevalent elsewhere at this season of the year. Perhaps it may not be out of place to state that the plentiful supply of fresh fish affords an agreeable and beneficial change of food for manv who nake Tenhy their abode during the summer months. I en by, too, may now lay claim to two other sources of commendation, which were wanting in former years, namely, that the town Is now perfectly drained, and possesses a beautiful supply of pure water.

Mr W. O. Hulm appeared for the prosecutor. Joshua Nash, sworn, said: I am manager to James Phillips, keeping the Caladonia. at Pembroke Dock. I was at home on Thursday when the prisoner came to our house about half-past two in the morning: he wanted a bed there. I gave him my own bed. I went up to see him about ten o'clock: be was asleep. I noticed that he had on a shirt of mine under his own. I saw mine through a hole in the sleeve of his own shirt. Mine was a plaid flannel shirt. I did not disturb him then; but I went away. I went up again about a quarter past one, and he was gone If he had gone through the front door I should have seen him. When I went up I foupd my shirt and a necktie were gone. I gave information to the Police: in the afternoon I went with Thomas, the policeman, to the Huts Bar. racks. I there saw the prisoner in military custody, and also saw my shirt, necktie, and Garibaldi jacket, be- longing to my sister, in charge of Thomas, the policeman. The Garibaldi was in the same room in which the pri- soner slept. This is my shirt and necktie. I know the sbirt by a tear in the wristband aud a tuck at the back of the neck. The necktie I know by a little fringe at the corner of it, and the Garibaldi I know by its not beiug hemmed inside the sleeve-it has bt;en torn since it had been taken away. I value the things at 6j. I did not wake him when I saw my shirt on him, because I was afraid of him, and was the only person in the house at the time. He went to bed about four or h,ilf past. We had some glasses of beer together. Three I drank. I was not drunk. The prisoner was not much worse for drink. Cross-examined by Prisoner: About three pints of beer you drank before you went to hed-three pints altogether. I had three glasses altogether, but only one glass out of the three pints. There were four men in the tap-room beside yourself when you went in. Eight quarts came in amongst the five: you did not say yol1 were too tight to go into burrncks. When you went upstairs you took your tunic off. I did not helo vou t0 undress at all. William Thomas deposed I am Acting-servant ofth0 oounty.in this Borough. From information"received I apprehended the prisoner at tho Hut Barracus on Thursday last, about quarter past two in the afternoon. I searched him and found this shirt and necktie: he was wearing the shirt underneath his own, and the tie was in his pocket. I afterwards • showed the articles to the prosecutor, and he identified them as his. About 20 mindtes to three, I went with Nash to the Huts,& there another article was shown to Nash (this Garibaldi) which he identifi. d as having been taken from his house. These articles have been in my possession ever since, and are those identified by the prosecutor. John Kelly deposed: I am corporal in the 1st battalion of the 9th regiment. I was ordered on Thursday last by the Col.-Sergeant to take the prisoner to the guard- room. A private soldier searched him in my presence. He handed me what was taken from him, which was a handkerchief, a shilling, part of a woman's dross-this looks like it- I gave it to the Col. Sergeant: it was taken from his trousers pocket. Col.-Sergeant Charles Winter deposed I received this article (the Garibaldi) from the last witness on tho afternoon of the 2nd instant. I gave it to the Policeman Thomas. The prisoner pleaded guilty. Committed summarily lor seven days to the House of Correction.
