The subscription to provide tour brass guns for the defence of this harbour and coast, boasts an ad- ditional number Of/contributors this week.-(Sce The measure is of such impor- tance to our security, that we hope a sufficient sum will be speedily raised to carry it into execution.

Tuesday morning, Mr. J—r- and Mr. M ■, both olNeath, met to decide a dispute which had arisen between them at a public inn, on the pre- ceding evening,. By the prudent interference of the seconds, however, the parties were reconciled, and quitted the ground friends. Wednesday morning, the body of Robert Dangor, servant to Mr. Arthur, of-Highway, was found on the seashore, near Black Pill, tie had left this town on the preceding evening, and being in a state ol inebriety, it iscoTijecturedTie laid down to sleep, and was drowned by the flowing in of the tide, As Mr. Jt Lucas, jun. of Stouthall, was returning home from hence/one evening this week, he disco- vered a man immersed in the water at Kilway Bridge; who, it appears, fen; in while attempting to drink, and was fourld with his head downwards; Had not Mr. L. fortunately observed him, and taken him out, he must. inevitably have perished; as he was to all appearance dead, and nearly three quar- ters of an hour elapsed before animation could be restored. The lamentable accident which happened to the servant ot Mr. 11. Hopkins, of-Sully, (related in our last) has oc<*asioned his death,—-Iiopes were at first entertained, that he would survive his wound, but they unfortunately, proved too sanguine.

The Forest volunteers, commanded by Major Lockwoad, will be inspected by Colonel Woarde, 0)1 Sunday next. Sunday last the Llanelly volunteers, under the command ol Capt. John-Rees, of Killymaenllewydd, appeared for the first time in full uniform, and went through their several manceuvres in a superior style from what miffht .have been expected, considering the lew drill days, allotted for-their practice: the unremitted attention of their officers, and theemu- laiion of the men,-will, it is presumed, whenever a review takes place, occasion a distinguished mark of approbation, to be passed on that corps, H iliust | be observed,,tU £ t company has tlie singular advan- tage of a volunteer band of seven perlbr'niers, which strengthens the.-spiritof aiilitafvdiscipline. The 1st battalion of loyal nreton;hire volunteers are iil expectation of being presented (very shortly; with a pair.of colours by the Lidies 01 Hrecon, as II mark of gratitude lor the zeal and alacrity with which they so handsomely stepped'forward ill their defence; and the liberties .of their nÚtîve land; Sunday morning last, the Ludlow and Bishop's Castle troops of yeonl-.mry cavalry, comnianded by Major Walcot, ,,(i oAr volunteer iijfan- try, comnianded by Major ijia-lway, were inspected o;i the (ild that. by Lieutenant Col.

Strengthening of Ships.—A patent has been recently granted for the invention of a method to strengthen ships, Or -other iiie of this invention I", to preserve life and property, by mulune a ship much .strong- er than on the common construction so that should she, by stress of weather, be driven on shove, she will keep up- right, and be belter able to resist danger • which is effected by laying a kee! CH'pach side the middle line, distant from c it, including the thickness thereof, one-sixth of the average breadth at loading drait of witter, or a "little more or less, according to the"fullness or sharpness of the ship.—The patentee observes, that a ship thus secured from straining, is moreltkely IwttO work her plank loose, which often oc- casions foundering and if, by stress of weather, she is un- avoidably driven on shore, she has the advantage of ships all the common construction, as they, lying on their edge, easily roll by the agitat ion of the sea, and strike against The ground, and when left by the tide, are often bulged by the over-hanging weight but ships on this construction,'hav- ing one-third of tlueir breadth to stand on, will neither roll, nor be likely to bulge and if, from the declivity of the ground, anotlier ship should overset, this will hot,- having two thirds of the weight to counteract it: therefore, as the preservation of and property at sea is of great im- portance, the above invention is ccrtainly entitled to no- tice. The patentee retires only a sniall compensation per ton to allow any ghip-builder the benefit of it. FEMALE DRESSES FOPv FEBRUARY.
