LO OA ^INTELLIGENCE. HAVERFORDWEST MUNICIPAL ELECTION.-The Coun- cillors whose period of office will expire on the 1st of November next, are Mr J. W. Phillips, (Mayor,) Mr R. Williams, Mr A. Beynon, and Mr W. Williams, all of whom, we believe, offer themselves for re-election There are four new candidates in the field :—Mr W. V. James, solicitor, Mr John Davies, Tower Hill, Mr John Lewis, of Hill S'reet, and Mr J. Thomas, of Quay. street. An aetive canvass has been already commenced by some of the Candidates, and there is every prospect of a sharp and exciting contest. WESLEYAX CuAPEL.—The anniversary sermons in a:d of the Trust Fund were preached at the Wesleyan Chapel on Sunday last—morning and evening-by the Rev F. J Sharr, of London. The rev. gentleman, (who is favourably known in this locality) preached on both oc- casions with great ability and to numerous audiences- On Monday evening the rev. gentleman delivered an instructive lecture at the same Chapel in aid of the same object. The subject was-' An evening with the Saints or a peep into an old curiosity shop.' The audience was very large, and frequently testified their appreciation of the lecture by loud plaudits. THE IATE DR BRMSTOCKE.—It is with much regret that we have to announce the sudden demise of Henry Brigstocke, Esq., M D., of Wolverhampton, one of the physicians of the South Staffordshire Infirmary. For many years Dr Brigstocke was principal surgeon of the British General Hospital, which useful and benevolent institution was established through hi" instrumentality. In the city of Bristol he held a highly influential position and practised there with great, repute for the lengthened period of five and twenty years. He left many friends to regret his removal from thence; and, since coming to this town, the same uniform courtesy of manner and kind Christian feeling, which ever of-araeterised his con- duct through J'fe, endeared him. in the course of the few years during which he resided amongst ns, to many sor- rowing relatives and friends. On Saturday morning last, he was seized with an attack of apoplexy, attended with partial paralysii. of the right arm, from which be never rallied, and, after a long life of much general usefulness and practical beneficence, be passed away in peace, to his blissful rest, at an early hour on Sunday morning, honoured and esteemed by all who knew him.- The Bir- mingham Daily Post. October, 8th 1868. CRICKET —HAVERFORDWEST JUNIORS V. PKMBROKE DOCK JUNICRS.—A match was played on the Llanion ground, Pembroke Dock, between the above clubs, on Thursday last, which resulted in favour of the Haver- fordwest Juniors by one innings and six runs to spare. The bowling of William White, on behalf of the Pem- broke Dock, was very good, and also that of T. Baker on behalf of the Haverfordwest. On the side of the Pem broke Dock club, J. Gwynne principally contributed, and on the side of the Haverfordwest club, Messrs James, Baker, and Perkins obtained cood scores. The fielding CD both sides was very good. Scoring was rather a difficulty, owing to the dampness of the ground. The following is the state of the game HAVERFORDWEST. 1st Innings. 2nd Innings. W. S. James, run out 13 b Thomas I W.

PEMBROKE. THANKSGIVING SERVICES.—The Harvest Thanksgiving was celebrated, on the 30th of September, in the beauti- ful little Church at Stackpole Elidor, alias Cheriton, when a very hrge and attentive congregation, Church- men and Dissenters, assembled to express t.heir devout thanksgiving to Almighty God, the Giver of all our blessings, tor the abundant harvest which has crowned the present year, and the very genial season to secure it. The service commenced at six p.m. The Rector read the prayers in his usual devout and solemn manner. The Rev Mr Bailey, Ci)aplafn to the Forces at Pembroke Dock, preached a very impressive sermon from Deut. lti. The hymns were appropnately selected. Alter the set- vice a collection was made in aid of the Pembroitesnire InSrmary, amounting to £ !j. COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS. [Town Hall, Saturday, October 3rd, before N. A. Roeh, H Leach, J. R. Bryant, ami W. Hulni, E-qrs.] William Morris, John Cole, and James Brooks, farm servants at Mr Williams, of Gupton Parish, Castlemartjn, were charged by Bernard Saimvays, head gamekeeper io the Right Hon. the Earl of Cawdor, with trespass in search of rabbits in the day time, on Sunday morning. 27th September last, on the downs. Mr W. 0. Hulm appeared for complainant. The defendants admitted the offence. Mr ilulm stated that the'defendants were seen by oiu of the watchers early in the tmrcing noiug about picking up eorae Jsnares, eleven ia all, and three rabbits vtere trapped in them during the night. It was a frequent practice with servants, and this proceeding was instituted to try to put a stop to it. The boy Brooks being only twelve years of age, be was instructed not to press the case against him if he would pay the costs. Morris was fined 20s, and 7s 4d costs. (paid) Cole was fined 12s 8d, and 7s 4d coats, (paid), and Brooks was ordered to pay 4s 10d costs, (paid). PEMBROKE—MARRIAGE FESTIVITIES AT STACKPOLE COURT.On Thursday afternoon last, marriage festivities were held in honour of the marriage of the Right Hon. Viscount Emlyn to Edith Georgina, eldr st daughter of I Mr Christopher Tumor, Stoke Rocbford, which was solemnised on the 16th of September, At one o'clock the employees, with their wives and children, sat down to an excellent dinner, which had been laid out in tbe huge granary at the farm Homestead, which is contiguous to the noble mansion; about toO persons were present. The chair was occupied by Mr A. Trotter, steward (above whom was elegantly printed Ilealth and Hap- piness to Lord and Lady Emiyn,") and the vice chair by Mr Sclater, chief gardener. The usual toasts were duly honoured the toast of Lord Emiyn and his fair bride was received wish the utmost enthusiasm. The room was judiciously and tastefully decorated with flowers, ferns, and evergreens, which were arranged in mottoes and devices of ingenious construction, emble- matical of and appropriate to the occasion. Several handsome arches were also erected upon the lawn and grounds adjoining the mansion, and the general appear- ance was very pleasing. After dinner the company adjourned to a meadow near the house, where foot racing, jumping, kiss in-the-ring, football, swings, &c, were indulged in, the prizes being handed to the successful competitors by his lordship. To add to the attractions, an excellent band of music was in attendance. Amongst those present were Lady Emiyn, Ladies Evelyn and Rachel Campbell, daughters of the noble Earl Cawdor, Mademoiselle Sangburgh, Miss Hack, Pembroke, and several other ladies, Rev. F. Leach, St. Petrox, Rev James Allen, Castlemartin (rural dean), Rev. William Allen, Bosherston, &c. In the latter part of the day the whole of the children, about 225 in number, of the schools at Warren, Stackpole. and Bosherston, were en- tertained to tea, cake, &c, in the mansion, aftef which Viscount Emlyn presented each of the children with some little article of interest, as a momento of the oc- casion. The children were in charge of the masters, Messrs. Edward and Thomas, whose schoolrooms were decorated with banners and flowers. During the even- ing a salvo of artillery was fired from the nine gun bat- tery, at the south of the mansion, by Mr Sclater and his staff. In the evening a ball was held in the mansion. All seemed to have enjoyed the day's amusements thoroughly, and not the slightest hitch took place to mar the proceedings.

UNITED COUNTIES SOCIETY. SiR,— At the dinner of the last meeting of the Pem- brokeshire Agricultural Society, the question was asked me by Mr Mathias, of Lamphey-as reported in your paper Where did the horses come from that were shown at the United Counties Society's show at Car- marthen ?' For the information of that gentleman, and the public generally, I will thank you to insert this letter in your next week's paper. In 1865, the Society's first shows there were 70 entries, 17 of which came from Pem- brokeshire. In 1866, there were 89 entries, 26 of which came from Pembrokeshire. In 1867, there were 119 entries. 38 of which came from Pembrokeshire. And this year there were 101 entries, 26 of which came from Pembrokeshire. I remain, dear Sir, yours truly, W. E. B. GWYN, Hon. Sec.
OUTRAGEOUS CONDUCT. SIR,—On Saturday night last, some evil disposed per- son wantonly broke one of the monumental windows in the parish Church of Saint Mary's, in this town. The stone thrown (a very large one) was of a peculiar descrip- tior, and not such an one as might be picked up on our pebbled streets, or even on a macadamised road this leading to the belief that it was a most wanton and pre- meditated action. We need not trouble you or the I public with further comments on the atrocity of such a deed, but hereby offer a reward of L5 for such infor- mation as shall lead to the discovery and conviction of the offender. We are, Sir, Your- obediently, RICHARD JAMES, T. RULE OWEN; Churchwardens of St. Mary's parish. Haverfordwest, Oct. 5th, 1868.
THE PROPOSED HARBOUR IN THE SOUTH BAY. To the Editor of the Wexford Constitution. SIR,—Thereport of the Commander of H.M. Surveying Ship Porcupine, upon the site of our proposed Harbour in the South Baj, has reached me. The report, which is a long one, full of observations and suggestions based upon professional knowledge and experience, I have been obliged to send away for the present. I send you, however, a copy of the concluding paragraph as it ex- presses so very well the advantages our Bay possesses, and as it cheers as on to perseverence.—yours faithfully, GEORGE LE HUNTE. Artramont, October ath, 1868. "The foregoing embraces all I need offer on the present occasion, and I have on'y to add that while studying the case in its various aspects, I have been impressed with the several advantages possessed by Ballygeary as a site for a useful harbour. I have not failed to notice, for exam- ple, that it is in a bay which affords complete protection in those winds which prevail for the greater part of the year-that it occupies an intermediate po. ition between Dublin and Waterford, on which section of coast there is no available harbour for vessels of burden: that it is situated near the common point of arrival and departure of this passing trade, thus rendering harbour accommo- dation at this spot more valuable than if it were provided elsewhere; that it is one of the points of the shortest sea- passage between Ireland and Wales, and lastly, that it is in the natural tine of route from the ruiddle and south of Ireland to Lnnrlon-to the south of England, and to all the import nt ports of South Wales. The combination of these sc eraladvantages gives Wexford a geographical position of no common vaiue, and I cannot doubt, there- fore, that if the promoters of the proposed harbour carry it out in the light of past experience, it will prove a boon to the coasting trade, and a great public gain to this improving portion of Ireland."—! am, Sir, your obedient servant, EDWARD K. CALVER, Admiralty Surveyor, H.M.S. Porcupine. To Captain Richards, R.N., F.R.S., Hydrogapher to the Admiralty. 8th September, 1868. SIR,—In the Telegraph of the 3Cth ult, a letter appears signed H. C. L., asking who is Mr Pitman r where is he from ? what is his character and ability as a public man and politician ? —(which have been satisfactorily answered this week-and infarmii g us that Colonel Edwards, and his family have been long known to the inhabitants of these boroughs as Liberals. This last as- sertion I must admit if their Liberalism consists in owning property in the county, receiving the rents, and yet absenting themselves from here for upwaids of fifty years, which, in itself is the chief and primary cause of the Irish grievance. But while asking for Mr Pitman's character and ability, Mr Long does not state what has been the character and ability of the gallant Col. pre- vious to contesting these boroughs. I presume that he is quite as ignorant of the Colonel's previous character as he is of Mr Pitman's, or that he has strong motives for withholding it. I would also fisk Mr Long, Who be is ? Where did he come from ? What was his religious character (previous to his present appointment)? Where was he trained foi the ministry? What was his position in his College? Also, whether he holds his appointment as the nominee of a few of the big-wigs of the Chapel or as the choice 01 the majority of the members and congregation. If he is the choice of the majority, what is the cause of the great and continual decrease of the members and con- gregation of the Tabernacle ? If he is the nominee of the few, is it liberal or just that they should force him upon them against their will ? My only desire in asking H. C. L. these questions is the wish to know who is to be the Martyr, himself or congregation. I remain, yours, &c., W. SIR,-In the Welshman of lot week there appeared a letter from Messrs Cock and Sinnette, as secretaries to Sir Hugh Owen's committee, on the subject of the coming election. Among other things, the letter contained an assertion that the contest would be won by a small ma joritv, and expressed great confidence that that majority would:be in Sir Hugh's favour. There are probably not many of our townsmen who would seriously endorse these statements, but as they may mislead others wbo do not live so near the centre of the contest, we think it right to make public the facts on which the supporters of Mr Meyrick base their expectation of a considerable majority in his favour. The result of Mr Meyrick's canvas in the district of Pembroke Dock, including Pennar, Bufferland, Waterloo, Llanion, Pembroke Ferry, &c., is as follows --The number of registered voters in the district is about 1,132, of which 43 are either absent or officially prevented from voting, so that the net num- ber ie reduced to 1089. Of these 636 have promised their support to Mr Meyrick, and 3"22 have been found in favour of Sir Hugh Owen. Eighty-one have declared for neutrality and 50 are either undecided, doubtful or have not been met with. The promises and refusals have, with very few exceptions, been given to Mr Mey- rick in person, registered on the spot, and the account submitted from time to time to the central committee, Red thence to the seven branch committees, to each of which a portion of the whole district is allotted. The duty of these committees, here represented by us, is to examine each their own part of the list, to ascertain by information and personal knowledge, whether the promises therein recorded appear trustworthy, and to extract and set aside such as, in their opinion, cannot be fully relied on. This duty has been carefully exe- cuted, and we believe that the statement above given is as accurate as it is possible to make it. We may ob- serve that it was drawn up solely for the satisfaction of the Committees, and not intended for publication, nor would it have been published, bad it not been for an accusation made in the letter we now answer, that Mr Meyrick's supporters were taking an unfair advantage over their political opponents by circulating statements respecting majorities, which exist only in their own imagination.' No doubt the calculations of both parties in a political contest are apt to be more favourable than the result, but after allowing a liberal discount on this score, the figures certainly do not warrant the assertion that ths majority will be small or in favour of Sir Hugh Owen, or that it exists only in our own imagination. As we have no official connection with any district except that of Pembroke Dock, we are unable to speak with the same minuteness of the state of the canvass in the other parts of our Electoral Union, but we are sufficiently acquainted with the returns from each place to state our belief that Mr Meyrick's general success will be on a scale at least proportionate to his expectations in Pembroke Dock. We remain Sir, Your obedient servants, THOMAS DEVONALD, Secretary of the Central Committee. WILLIAM DAVIES GEOIWE RICHAUDS HENRY BANNER SAMUEL SLOGGETT EDWARD THOMAS WILLIAM J.

FOUNDERING OF A STEAMER IN THE BAYOF BISCA Y.- Early on Monday morning the tcbooner Sisters, May- cork master, from Madeira to London, brought into Dartmouth harbour the crew of the screw steamship Volunteer, Job master, from Cardiff, bound to Trieste, with coals, which foundered on Saturday in the Bay of Biscay. She encountered a very heavy gale from the S .8. W and on Friday morning, when about ]20 miles W. S. W of the Lizard, the sea broke with such tury over her that her engines broke down. They then set sail, but her bows got so nearly under that they could make no progress. About 3 p,m., the schooner bore down uqon her, and took a warp, but the steamer had so mncb water in her, that all attempts to tow her were to no purpose. The crew then set to removing their clothes end about 9 p.m. left her. The Sisters remained by her I until after midnight when she went down,
THE SPANISH REVOLUTION. DECKEES OF THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT. MADRID, Oct. 12.— Several decrees of Marshal SerranO are published to-day, tecorganising the personnel of the Presidency of the Council of State, and accepting the re- signation of several Councillors of State. A decree signed by General Prim has also been pnbJished, by which all officers in the Spanish army retain their former grades, or the higher grades to which they hsd been called. Another decree of General Prim reduces the military service of the Spanish soldiors by two years. Another decree appoints General Noveliehee as Captain- General of Catalonia, and General Carlos La Torre 10 the same post in Valencia. THE AMERICAN MINISTER'S RECOGNITION OF THE PRO" VISIONAL GOVERNMENT. MADRID, Oct. 11. The Official Gazette of to-day publishes a report of the reception of the American Minister, by the new ministry, upon his recognising the Provisional Government. The Minister congratulated Serrano upon the successful issue of the retolution, and friendly sentiments were expressed on either side. POLITICAL MEETINGS IN MADRID. MADRID, Oct. 32. — A meeting of the Democratic party was held yesterday, which passed off tranquilly. The speeches were very quiet, and were calmly listened to. Perfect order prevailed, and the meeting unanimously drew up and adopted the declaration to the effect that the Democrats would support the Government so long as it remained faithful to the principles of the revolution. The lateness of the hoifr prevented the meeting from voting upon the resolution of Senor Orense. A second meeting will shortly be held. BURNING OF THE CONCORDAT. MADRID, OCT. 12.—In consequence of a popular mani- festation, in which the mob burnt the Concordat in front of the palace of the Papal Nuncio, the French Ambas- sador waited upon Marshal Serrano to knov if the representatives of foreign powers could reckon upon their personal safety being respected by the people. Marshal Serrano replied in the affirmative. and offered to place a guard of soldiers before the houses of the foreign representatives, assuring the French Ambassador at the same time that the manifestation was solely in favour of religious liberty. SYMPATHY OF THE PRESS IN FRANCE WITH THE REVOLUTION. PARIS, CCT. 12, EVENING.-Geneml Prim has ad- dressed a letter to the Paris journal, Le Gaulois, thank- ing it for the sympathy it has shown shown for the popular movement in Spain. The General expresses astonishment at the impatience of that portion 'of the French press which considers that Spain is not setting to her work fast enough, and adds, "Eight days sufficed for us to overthrow a dynasty three hundred years old, and to establish new Government. We shall "not delay now to consolidate our position through a constituent assembly on the basis of our programme, which is shown to you. We shall then have succeeded in attaining the political idea of contemporary Spain, namely a really constitutional monarchy, founded upon the most extender liberal basis compatible with that kind of Government." DR. LIVINGSTONE. —Sir Roderick Murchison writes as follows from Sr. Leonard's-on-Sea, Oct. 7: "Rejoicing as I shall with all my countrymen it the report in this day's telegraphic news of Dr. Living,tone having been heard of within a week's march of Zanzibar should prove true, naturally cling to the belief in its truthfulnes, inas- much as in my last address to the Royal Geographical Society I stated that I thought my illustrious friend would return to that island, and that in such case wa should probably hear of him this autumn. As I founded my original persuasion that Livingstone bad not been killed on or near the Lake Nyassal as affirmed by the mendacious Johanna men, judging from the evident falsehood of their story, and reasoning also on the character, endurance, and objects of the great traveller; so I trust that the raasons I have assigned for believing he would in all probability return by Zanzibar will not be forgotten. We have, indeed, to learn whether he traced the waters of the Lake Tanganyika in'o those of the Albert Nyanza. If he did this he will have settled t.he great, geographical problem of the true watershed of South Africa, and wiil have removed the sources of the Nile to a much more southern latitude'than the great equatorial lakes discovered by Speke, Grant and Baker." SPIRITUALIST TREASURE HUNTERS.—A correspondent of the Boston Journal writes the following from NI ount Desert, Maine: -About a mile from our camp a party of men are engaged in 'digging for treasures' under the direction of two spiritualist mediums. They have been working at it all the summer, and the man who owns the land and is to have one-fourth of all that is found aS bis share of the proceeds, tells me that in about two months there will be developments that will astonish the world. He was an unbeliever at first, but he has become convinced now that the results of Captain Kidd's piratical expeditions are buried among the ledges of his farms. The mediums have told the diggers that there are twelve rooms elaborately finished and covered with a roof of polished Egyptian marble, which are filled with treasures stolen by Kidd and his companions, and the owner of the land has spent considerable time in trying to convince us that a common trap ledge, smoothly worn by glacial action, is the roof of polished marble. The spirit who soenks through the mediums purports to belong to one of K'dd's companions, and he exhorts the meu who are digging to make good use of whatever they may find. They have spent the summer in making excavations which they expect will lead them to independent fortunes* and if they are disappointed they will have poor pro- vision for the winter. The farm which is now thought to be so rich in treasure cost its present owner one hun- dred and twenty-five dollars for some two hundred acres of land, but he says that no amount of money would induce him to dispose of it now, although he is still in debt for about half the purchase money. He says there are several other deposits richer than the one which they are at work upon, and he professes to firmly believe that most of the money and valuables ever stolen by pirates will shortly come into his possession. My impression 15 that he can make more money in catching lobsters and selling them at two cents each, than in digging for Capt. Kidd's iligotfen booty." GOD'S KINGDOM.—That we do not see this is our great misdemeanour. That we do not see and receive our common Father, is the one great error of man. It was the unceasing theme of our Lord's astonishment. 'Ye can discern the signs of the times,' ye can behold the lily,' ye can recognise 'the feeding of the ravens,' yet not see the heavenly Father, not know the eternal Provi- dence, not hear the everlasting chime, was his constant wonder and sorrow. 4 He marvelled (we read) at their unbelief.' Behave eyes, and see not; ears and bear no, He even said. It was their misfortune; but it waS also their fault. It is sin not to do this. I t is a salvation to do it. For our only salvation is to see and to hear God's voice, and to recognise it as that of a Father. To do this will not indeed alter the circumstances of life» but it will sanctify them and glorify them to us. It will raise us up when wo fail, to remember that we are God's children, that although God hates sin, He does not hate us. As we realise that God has and can have but one object towards us but our good as we realise that as He made us from no obligation, and no need of our service, but from love, our well-being must be precious to Hiro; as we recognise that He has but one end in view—our perfection, and that he is achieving this by every method which infinite love and wisnom put in His power, we are at peace. Wo find that we are in the hands of a good Shepherd, a good Physician, a good Teacher, who is educating us foa a blessed eternity with Himself; that God is giving us a fitness for His own presence; making us partakers of His holiness, that wo may be of his bles. sedness, and doing this as is required. We find that flS we re-i»t we but delay our happiness. His kindom is only true good, yet alas I we would ever delay it bY seeking our own things, Mercifuliy God's grace and the true kingdom hastens on. God the Father ever behind all things, and pressing the kingdom on. have preludes ever and anon of its advent, the notes Of its harmonies are now heard more near, the splendour 0 the day, the true 'Conquering Hero,' let us believe,1 at hand erelong the clouds will roll away, tbe g''c,0if,j. of travailing nature cease, and nature rejoice throughoo as the new man is born into the world, and the Son «u" was in the bosom of the Father from eternity is coti'P1 e in the gathering in of i.U creatiou to Himself, the which cannot be destroyed, whose foundations are m nature of God.
