Cardiff, July 4, 1839, THE NEW LONDON GENUINE TEA COMPANY, 25, COLEMAN-STREET, LONDON, HAVE APPOINTED Misses E. and G. JENKINS, Cambrian Library, 25, WIND-STREET, Their Sole Agents at Swansea. THIS Establishment is formed to caution and pro- J tect the Public, and counteract the various frauds and de- ceptions practised since the introduction of Free Trade Teas, and to secure to the Public a genuine article. The following Agents are already appointed: Mrs. E. Moore, Chemist and Tea Dealer, Pembroke Dock John Morgan, Draper, Pont.vpool; W illiam Rogers, Draper, Caerteon; Philip Bird, Grocer, Cardifi Iltid Evans, Ironmonger, Bridgend; John Eynon, Ironmonger, Tenby Oliver Edmondes, Chemist, &c., Narbetrh Owen Thomas, Draper, &c., Pembroke Mrs. Martha Symmons, Baker and Confectioner, Milford John James, Draper, &c., Llandilo. Thecompany is encouraged in the undertaking by the very ge- neral and just complaints throughout the country, of the spurious article imposed upon them, of which there have been large im- portations under the Free Trade System, from Sincapore, &e. The Company have determined to supply their friends with the same genuine Teas as were supplied by the Hong Merchants, at Canton, to the Hon. East India Company, during so manv years. It will tollow, that the Company cannot enter into competition with the vendors of low-priced Teas, so called"—although they will be always ready to receive and execute orders for any such, on the lowest terms, but not under the Company's label. Agents are being appointed in every Town in the Kingdom, for the Sale of the NEW LONDON GENUINE TEA COMPANY'S TEAS, which are sent in pounds, half-pounds, quarters, and two ounces, and in three and six pound parcels, each carefully packed in Lead, inclosed in an elevation of their premise-; in Coleman- street, and sealed with their seal, thus saving trouble to the Agents, and affording to the purchaser the satisfaction of knowing that he has the genuine Teas sent out by the Company. Agents of known respectability will he appointed in every Town they will obtain not only a genteel and permanent, but a very lucrative addition to their own business, without, in most cases, the advance of additional capital. Applications for such Agency, with references lo two respect. able Houses in London, will have immediate attention. Address the New London Genuine Tea Company, 25, Coleman street, London (post-paid.)
SWANSEA, FRIDAY, JULY 19. t::r Several favours are unavoidably deferred to our next for waut of room. t::7 The letter of Mr. PRIOR, in reply to an Address 10 Ihe Working Classes of Wales, allverlised in our last, can ouly be inserted as au Ad ve, li.ement.
Mr. J. H. Vivian has paired off with Mr. Miles, the Member for Bristol, from Saturday, the Gth July, for the remainder of the session. The E;<rl of Dunraven, will, it is supposed, be the new Irish Representative Peer. Lord Katluloune was spoken ot as a candidate, but he has resigned in favour of Lord Dunraven. We hope there will be a numerous attendance and a good sale for the benefit of the Mumbles Infant's School on the 16th August. We will make no further comment, but refer to the advertisement in our columns ot this day. We are glacl to find that exertions are now making by the Anthracite interests to secure public attention to the applicability of Stone Coal to steam purposes, to the making of a greatly improved quality of iron, as well as to many other purposes to which as yet it has only been experimen- tally applied, will have the co-operation of almost every in- dividual interested, so strong is the general confidence in the powers of this extraordinary fuel. This is a very grati- fying circumstance, and the best reward those gentlemen find who have so disinterestedly stood forward to call the at- tention of parties to what it is so manifestly their advantage to adopt. A very full meeting is expected for the 22d inst. SWANSEA TOWN COUNCIL.—We have learned on good authority, and we must add with much regret, that the meetings of this body do not command that full attendance of its members which the importance of our municipal affairs call for, and we have good reason for stating that, although the Councillors and Aldermen amount to twenty- four, yet, at the last quarterly meeting, about eight Council- lors attended. This is rather too bad. We have also been given to understand that the usual monthly meeting for this present month has been postponed twice, in consequence of an insufficient quorum (eig-ld) not being present. It has been said, we are aware, that the first postponement might be attributed to the assize week at Cardiff; however, we be- lieve one of the Corporate body only can plead that excuse. We are sorry, also, to promulgate another fact, namely, that the meetings of the Commissioners of Paving and Light- ing, &c., have been of late most shamefully neglected by the Members of the Council. We sincerely trust that a word to those whom it concerns will prove amply sufficient; if not, the public of Swansea may depend we shall prefer their interests to the convenience or apathy of their municipal re- presentatives, and that we will, in our duty as public journal- ists, not fail in using our utmost endeavours to "place the saddles on the right horses," and thus give the constituency an ample insight into what so cl sely concerns them. THE WEATHEIL-The weather for the last week in this part of the kingdom has been very unfavourable for the hay harvest, and according to present appearances, is likely to continue so for some days. Last night and this morning, we experienced a perfect hurricane, with heavy rain; and we are fearful we shall hear of considerable losses at sea, and destruction of property in various parts of the country. The Queen has been pleased to grant unto Cann Wilkins, of Clifton, in the county of Gloucester, Esq., a Magistrate and Deputy Lieutenant for Glamorganshire and Somersetshire (on behalf of himself and brothers); to Walter Wilkins, of Maeslough Castle, in the county of Radnor, Esq., one of the Knights of that shire in Parlia- ment and to John Parry Wilkins, of Maesyderwen, in the county of Brecon, Esq., a Magistrate and Deputy Lieutenant of that shire (on behalf of himself and brothers), being all the great grandsons of Thomas Wilkins, Esq., Prothonotary on the Biecon Circuit, deceased, her royal licence and per- mission, that they and their descendant may take and use thPir original surname of De Winton, in place of that of Wilkins, which they now bear: and also to order, that the said royal concession and declaration be registered in her Ma- jesty'sCollege of Arms,otherwise to be void and of none effect. THE MINERALS OF BRRCONSHIRF. AND RADNORSHIRE. —A gentleman fromCornwat), called at our office last week on a geological tonr through the above named counties, and on Tuesday last returned, bringing with him three speci- mens of very rich copper ore found within the county of Brecon. We have also this week received from a corres- pondent of Gladestry, Radnorshire, five specimens of iron ore of different kinds, found in that parish.— Silurian. Cowbridge. — In this healthy market-town (says a Correspondent) there is a population of about twelve hun- dred inhabitants, many of whom are persons of independent property, but yet there is no butcher, baker, or plumber, in the parish, and labourers arr> so scarce that the farmers are now paving from twelve to fifteen shillings per week, be. sides an allowance of beer, and in many cases a dinner, during harvest time. This is a striking contrast to Devon- shire, where the men employed in agriculture are earning butseventoeightshithngsperweek. An Auxiliary Society has been formed in Tenbv, as a branch to the Shipwreck Fishermen and Mariners B'e- nevolent Fund Society. Two or three preliminary meetings have been held,—the Rev. Doctor Humphries in the chair- where donations and annual subscriptions were received, and a resolution passed, that the inhabitants and visitors shouidbesoiicitedonbebatfofthefund. The clergymen of the neighbouring parishes within the district have hand- somely offered to give their best assistallcc in aid of its funds. The benefit of this society cannot be too deeply impressed on the public mind, as in many cases of shipwreck last winter the seamen suffered great privations before they reached their respective homes, as they were refused relief from the Merchant Seaman's Hospital fund; which fund is from the Merchant Seaman's Hospital fund; which fund is supported at their expence, by stopping one shilling per month from their hard-earned wages. PRESENTATION OF A PIECE OF PLATE TO HENRY LEACH, ESQ.—A meeting was held in the Shire Hall, Ha- verfordwest, on Tuesday the 9th instant, for the purpose of presenting Henry Leach, Usq Chairman of the Board of Guardians of the Poor of the Haverfordwest Union, with a Piece of Plate,—a veryetegant Salver, which cost upwards of one hundred guineas, weighing 299 oz., anil 2G inches in diameter, the edges very richly chased, and its appearance most costly, bearing the following illscriprion:- Presented to HENP.Y LEACH. Esq., Chairman of theHaver- fordwest Union, by the Guardiiins, Ratepayers, and others, 8S a testimony of the high sense they entertain of the distin- guished zeal and ahility with which he has executed the aronous dulv of his ollice." The Rev. Thomas Martin, Vice-Chairman of the Board rose, and addressed the Chairman as follows:- Mr. Chairman,—The Board of Guardians of the Hare) ford- west Union, together with a numerous body of Ratepayers, have assembled here this day, for the purpose of offering to you a public manifestation of their respect for yon as their Chaimian, and have delegated to me the agreeahle duty of conveying to you 'he un- equivocal expression óf their sentiments for your valuable ser- vices. I could have wished that the,1 had selected some other person better qualified than myself to impart to you their high sense of those services in terms commensurate to their import- ance. As that has not been done, I have only to hope that you will make every allowance for any deficiency on my part, and that you will impute to me an flnxiolls desite to express the opinion of the Board. You well remember that, on the formation of the Union, the Guardians unanimously elected you as their Chairman—they now reap the fruit of that election-they now find every department of the Board so conducted as to effect the purposes contemplated by the Poor Law Amendment Act. If for instance, they advert 10 the medical department, they have the advantage of knowing from the weekly returns made to the Board, the state of the sick through each district of the Union and can ascertain whether they have received proper attention' or whether there has been any individual case of neglect. The duties of the Relieving Officers are likewise so admirably regu- lated, that in every instance of individual distress, the ¿;irct7m- stances and condition of the party requiring relief, are faithfully disclosed and, consequently, every dilliculty removed in de- ciding upon their case. In personal applications, throngh vour authority an impartial hearing is always obtaitied and tnay'l be permitted to observe, that III all those cases where age, infirmity, or any other disability have brought applicants to the Board, you have been the warm supporter of tii ir claims. On the other hand, whele allempts have heen made 10 impose upon those funds suhtracled from thp industrious anil hard-working Rate- payers, you have detected the fraud, and preserved them for their lawful purposes. It cannot, therefore, be a matter of sur- prise that theBoard of Guardians should have recognised such combined and essential services indilidual energy, whcn di- rected to the public welfare, generally attracts public appro- bation. It is, the:efore, on those ¡!rounds, and on behalf of the Board of Guardians, 10getller witb a nUlllerotls body of Rate- payers, that I now, S:r, present to vou this Silver Salver, as a token of the high sense they enterlain for thai distinguished zeal and auility which have so pre-eminently chllraclerised your pro- ceedings as Chairman of Ihe Union." To which Mr. Leach made the following reply — Gentle,nen,I alii relieved bv the eloqlJenl exposition of the Rev. Vrice-Cliainnan from the necessity of making anv observa- tions on the practical working of a law, the beneficial effects of which we allallticipate. For the flattering terms in which he has spoken ol me, I tender him my warmest thanks. I know the value ofucomptimeotfromhim, because I know his sincerity; but! cannot consent to ascribe to myself so great a portion of the merit to which he is justly entitled, as well as the other intelligent gentlemen who attend the Board, and the elected Guardians, by all of whom I have been so ablv supported in the execution of duties which we share together. I have only, therefore, to con- fine myself to the expression of mv thanks for the valuable pre- sent that has been made me and this I would do in terms which my feelings would dictate, and which the occasion demands, but I am met by a difliculty which I cannot overcome, and I am destined to feel the hamiliating conviction that I want the ability to do so. Gentlemen, the honour that has been done me—the favour that has been conferred upon me—and, above all, the kindness which has dictated both-will be remembered by me to the day of my death, hut to the day of my death can never be adequately expressed. Gentlemen, I have no eloquence where- with to address you—I can uly rel v upon the simplicity of truth, but add no ornament or force to its expression. If that were in mv power, then should I be able to tell you how sensiblv I feel oil the present occasion and fwoutd teit you the honest pride and gratification I experience in the recollection that, after forty years of public services and oHicial duties, I am called upon to receive a present, of great value in itself, hut rendered inesti- mable as a token of the kindness and confidence of the Board of Guardians of this Union, and of so many Rate-payers, and of so many Gentlemen, and of some Ladies, too and I would tell you, that, in proportion as I feel the value of this present, im- measurable beyond any public service I ever had the ability to perform, I feel the kindness the more, and I feel the obligation the greater;—but I would tell you also that, if I ever had pos sessed the power to render the most essential service to any por- tion of the community within this county, their approbation, and your approbation alone, would at once have cancelled the obliga tion and conferred the reward. Gentlemen, there is one thing of which I can venture to be certain, and that is, that when time, which brings all things to a conclusion, which puts an end to our joys andour sorrows, shall have put an end, as soon it must, to my very limited capability of rendering the smallest public ser- vioe,-if I survive that period when all real enjoyments in this subluroarv slate are at an end-I shall have no occasion to clothe imagination in the spoils" of by-gone pleasures, hut can safely rely for the pleasures of age on the pleasures of memory," in the recollection of your kinùnesl>, which wili remain impressed upon my mind to the latest hour of my existence. Receive, then, Ladies and Gentlemen, tbe unfeigned and heartfelt aSSUrRnce of the gratitude of one whose greatest wish is thai his ability cor- responded with his inclination to serve and to thank you."

Several witnesses were called to corroborate the above stated facts; and amongst others Mr. Lewis, surgeon, of Cardiff, who had attended prisoner at the gaol. The evidence of several wit- nesses established her insanity, beyond a:l doubt that it had commenced from the birth of her last child, about fouryears ago; that she is 45 years of age, and that insanity was hereditary in her family.

Saunders, Esq., attended hv a number of gentlemen on horseback, and the usual retinue of javelinmen, proceeded a short way from town to meet his Lordship, when the procession formed, and returned with the Learned J udge into town. His Lordship was received by the members of the Corporation, and proceeded immediately to the Town Hall, when the Assises were commenced with the usual formalities, and the Court then adjourned to Monday. On Sunday morning the Learned Haron attended Divine Service at St. Peter's Church, where prayers were read by the Rev. Archdeacon Bevan, and an excellent discourse was delivered by the Rev, D. A Williams, the Sheriff's Chaplain, from Collosians :t, 25, But he hat doeth wrong shall receive lor the wrong which he hadi done; and there is no respect of persons. The Learned Baron took his seat on the Bench on Mondav morning at eleven o'clock, for the dispatch of business. The Calenfliirs both for the County and Borough presented a most gratifying appearance, there being not one prisoner for trial; but in the course of Monday two bills were preferred—one for riot, and another for perjury. After the usual preliminaries, the following gentlemen, com- prising the Grand Jury, were called and sworn :— FuP THE CON NT V. Jolui Jones, Ksq., Foreman. Edward Price Lloyd, Esq.

John Taylor, Esq. T. G. Lewis, Esq. William Thomas, Esq. D. L. Mortimer, Esq. Thomas Taidrew, Esq. Her Majesty s proclamation ngainst vice, profaneness, and im- morality hating been read by the Clerk of Assize, his Lordship proceeded to address the Grand Jury as follows — Gentlemen of Ihe Grand Jury for the County and County Porongh of Carmarthen—This is the second time I have had the pleasure of congratulating; yon on having no criminal business to do. I have for ill, second time received blank calendars, and I am not aware there fore of there being any thing to which I ought necessarily to direct your attention. 11 is nevertheless rieces-ary, that the Grand Jury should be sworn, as it affords the opportunity for parties who have received wrong to have that wrong redressed, and persons may be about to pre fer bills against parties who may not be in rustody, or whose names do not appear in the calendar. The proclamation yon have just heant read reminds me of what I believe, to be an essential part of your public duty, that is, in every possible way to recomlllenr1 habits of virtue, and loctis countenance those of vice. I teellh" necessity of lecominen.mig pan:- cnlarly to your attention the piopriety of throwing your influence to discountenance the vice nl drunkenness. II is «n evil that entails misery on families, nestro) sail domestic comforts—thwarts the efforts of morality and religion, and becomes the foundation of almost all the evil that exists in the world. Theie is scarcely any Comity I visit in my ollkial capacity but I discover the ravages of this dreadful evil, and hardly a crime against which the aim of justice is rai«ed, but which may be traced 10 this evil as its cause and origin. Under these circumstances I cannot bill think it is a duty on the part of the Magistracy, and all public officeis in their several capacities, to contribute something to put down this odious vice. I am happy to have nothing further to add. Yon will retire to your duties, allfl if any bill is brought before yon, yon will give it your best ahenlion; if not, I shall have the plea- sure of discharging you. The Court then proceeded to dispose of the civil business; the first case was that of Nevill and another v. Jones.—This was an undefended action, brought by Richard Janions Nevill, Esq and Mr. Nevill Broom, timber-merchants, at Llanelly, against John Jones, a builder in the same town, to recover a sum due for timber sup- plied by plaintiffs. Charles Nevill Broom examined :-1 am a clerk in ilie employ of Williams and Co., at Llanelly. In 1835 the plaintiffs carried on business from that year to 1S37 and in that year I went through the accounts between the plaintiffs and defendant. The one produced is in my hand-writing, and the same I referred to. The balance is 212/. 17s. Id. There was one item, amounting to 30/ to which he objected.

The defendants pleas were, 1st, the agreement stated in the declaration; 2d, that the money was not advanced; 3d, that the agreement was not in writing 1th, the statute of limitations. Mr. Chilton, in addressing the jury animadverted on persons in the station of life of the defendants pleading the statute of limitations. He said he could suppose the cass of a defendant c.il'e.l to acrcm; after a lapse of many years, during which he had mislaid or lost jus vouchers, when such a pi. a would be perfectly justifiable but that in this instance there was no such escuse, as there was .no dispute as to the amount due.

POWELL, or THE 40TH REGIMENT.—We have been favoured by a Correspondent wilii some particulars relating to this melancholy event, noticed in our last, it appears that onr gal- lant and respected conntiyman, who was a native of Brecon, though in a bad state of health, had again joined his regiment, and had partici- pate'! in the taking of Knrachee. Soon afterwards the army weie en- camped in the low grounds, where they expeiienced heavy rains, and the encampment became inundated. This produced the ravaging disease ol cholera, to which onr enterprising friend fell a victim after a few stiffeiing. In 3 letter addressed by an Officer to the Editor of the Bombay Garette, he states, "the 40th have lost about twenty men and two officers; one of the latter, I regret most sincoe'y to tell you, is Col. Powell, who died after a few hours' illness—a better nor a kinder- tiearted man perhaps never lived, nor one with whom on a short lie- IlIainlanee one ever regielted so much losing as a friend." If this was lie opinion of one upon a short acquaintance," how much must the <s of this gallant soldier be deplored by those who knew him during a oug military life, as Brethren in arms, but rivals in renown." We should have wished to enlarge upon the military services of this excellent officer, but our limits compel us 10 conclude in the words of he Poet, 11 That in battle field throb'd heart more brave."
