BKEAM-DOWN HARBOUR.—The first scction of this gigan- tic undertaking was completed on Saturday, by Messrs Chaplin and Co., contractors. A solid stone wall now ex- tends 150 feet into the sea, the thickness of the same being ten feet at the base, graduating to five feet at the top. There is also an abutment of forty feet in length and ten feet in width, and a wing of thirty feet. The second section, we understand, will be commenced forthwith, when the Bristol and Exeter Railway Company will, according to agreement, extend their line to the works. The present aspect of affairs is most encouraging. ENGLISH CHINA WARE.—The Herald correspondent at the Paris Exhibition, remarks -.—Price, of Bristol; Cox, of Stanhope-street, Hampstead-road; Jones, of the Trent Pottery and Primavesi, of Cardiff, occupy advanced places in this useful and elegant competition. Not one of them but is a lon°" way ahead of his French rivals; quite on a par with the Germans, who employ, for the most part, dull colours or dead surfaces in advance of the Belgians, who coov us however, to sevilly and as much superior to the Dutch as a Sevres vase is to a Ramsgate mug. THE BALLOT-Mr. Dilhvyn and Kir. C. R. M Talbot, were amona; iho minority who went into the lobby with air II, Berkeley on Friday, in favour of secret voting. It is noticeable that out of the UU members who voted against the ballot, 26 are liberals, and comprise some of the ablest men in the party-namcly, the Right Hon.

Colonel Ciichfon- Stuart had intended to vote for the motion, but was aecidentlv shut out of the lobby. REGISTRATION.—Saturday, July 20th, is the last day for service of notice of claims for votes for members of parlia- ment in county constituencies. SALEM WELSH BAPTIST CHAPEL, SPLOTLAND.—On Tuesday evening at the above place, was held the second quarterly meeting of the three Sunday schools of the Welsh Baptist Chapels at Cardiff-vir. Tabernacle, Siloam, Docks, and Salem, Splotland; when several piecieswere recited and sung very creditably. The attendance was small, and the chair was filled by Mr. J. Davies. Mn. BRUCE'S EDUCATION BILL.—We regret to observe in the Parliamentary reports of Monday night that Mr. Bruce, in reply to Mr. Hubbard, said that it v>'as not his in- tention to proceed with the Education of the Poor Bill, and he moved that the order for the second reading be discharged. The order was discharged, and the bill was withdrawn. We hope it will be re-introduced next session. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.—On Sunday night the wife of a respectable shipchandler at the docks, rushed out of her house in her night-dress and mn towards the West Bute Dock Basin. She there attempted to throw herself in, but a police-constable succeeded in preventing her, and conveyed her home. Temporary mental derangement was said to be the cause. A STEAMER SUNK IN THE CHANNEL.—On Tuesday morning, before many people were astir, a pleasure steamer belonging to Mr. Fothergill, and which was lying in the Clevedon bay, was observed suddenly to sink. Luckily, there was no one on board at the time. The explanation offered is that the vessel leaked, and had been filling during the night, which was very rough. LLANDAFF CATHEDRAL.—Sunday, July 21.—Morning Prayer- Venite, 136 Daily Psalms, 115; Te Deum, 1, 3 Jubilate, 174; Hymn, 141; Kyrie, Rogers in D; Hymn, ] 4-2, part 3.-Evening Prayer—Daily Psalms, 117; Mag- nificat, Wesley Anthem, "How dear are thy counsels," Crotch; Hymn, 161.—The Litany—Hymns, 164,163,11.

RIFLE COMPETITION.—On Monday a competition for prizes took place ou the East moors, between the 16th Glamorgan Rifle Volunteers. The weather was very un- favourable, the wind being decidedly adverse to accuracy of aim on the part of the marksmen. There were five prizes competed for, the three principal of which were won as follows:—1st, Private Thomas Edwards, £ '<, 24 points; 2nd, £1 lOs., Private Edward Edwards, 23 points 3rd, £1, Private Thomas Mason, 22 points. PIC-MC.—On Wednesday the officers and teachers of the Canton Wesleyau Sunday School proceeded, in breaks and other vehicles, to Cold Napp, in the vicinity cf Barry Island, where they regaled themselves with every dainty in season, together with fruit in abundance; and after a very enjoyable day, althsugh the weather was very unpropitious, the partj, after taking tea and cake, re-entered their conveyances, and arrived at home about 10 a.m., exceedingly delighted with the day's recreation. DEATH OF MR. E. KENWAY.—We announce with sincere regret the death of Mr. Edward Kenway, for many years the Seeietary of the Taff Vale Railway. The deceased gentleman was engaged in his ordinary duties, and enjoyed his usual health, until a very few days previous to bis death, which occurred on Tuesday. Mr. Kenway was a man of retiring disposition, who laboured assiduously in the discharge of his official functions and confined himself mostly thereto, taking very little part in public anahs, though he was known to hold very decided opinions on many public questions of the day. GLAMORGANSHIRE VOLUNTEERS.—The annual Volun- teer Prize Shooting Competition will commence on Tuesday the 23rd inst., and will be continued on the two following days. Wednesday, the 31st, is the day determined on which the County Review and the annual inspection will take place, and which will be held this year on Crumlin Burrows, at as near a point to Britonferry-road station as practicable. This arrangement will be very advantageous to the Volun- teers in the Swansea, Neath, and Merthyr Districts, for Britonferry-road can be reached without charge of railway carriage. This will not be so for volunteers from the eastern end of the county, as they will have to change carriages at Neath from the South Wales to the Vale of Neath line. GLAMORGAN ARTILLERY —At Wimbledon, we are happy to notice, the second prize for rifled carbine shooting was carried off by Corporal Bennett, of the 1st Swansea Glamor- gan Artillery, with the same score of 32, as took the first prize, the winner of which made one more point at the longer range. The firing was five rounds at 150 yards, when Bennett scored 17, his opponent making 16, and five rounds at two hundred yards, the winner scoring 16, while Bennett made 15 points. There were 150 competitors, of whom two made 32 points, four 31, four 30, one 29, and about fifty 28. Corporal Bennett is evidently a crack shot with his carbine, for he carried off last year the first prize at Port Talbot, and the first prize of his corps at Swansea. REV. J. S. WORKMAN.—On Sunday, the Rev. J. S. Workman, of London, preached the annual sermons on behalf of Loudon-square chapel, when satisfactory collections were made on behalf of the chapel funds On Monday even- ing a meeting on behalf of the Wesleyan Home Missions, presided over by Mr. John Cory, was held in Charles-street Chapel, which was addressed by Mr. Workman, the Wesleyan ministers of Cardiff, and other gentlemen. It appeared from the .report read that the past year had been the most successful of any that the misssion had passed, and that the revenues raised for the purposes of this useful local charity were largely increasing, and its benefits exten- ding to the poor beyond those of former years. TESTIMONIAL TO THE REV. P. MADDOCKS.—On Monday evening last a public meeting was held in Bute-street chapel, Cardiff, to present a testimonial to the Rev. P. Maddocks, prior to his departure to Gloucester. The chair was occu- pied by Mr. J. E. Billups, The chairman apologised for the unavoidable absence of Mr. John Cory, who was at that hour engaged in presiding over the meeting held in behalf of the Wesleyan Missions. A letter was then read from the Rev. N. Thomas, expressing his sympathy with the meeting and his respect for Mr. Maddocks, and then Mr. Billups re- ferred to the labours of Mr. Maddocks for the last five years in Cardiff, exhorted the members to pray for him, to cultivate closer union with God, and to cherish christian affection for all christians. The meeting was subsequently addressed by Mr. T. White, Messrs. Beaven, Hodgson (town missionary), J ohn8on and Howells. The testimonial, consisting of a beautiful purse containing £23 10s., all in gold, was then presented to Mr. Maddocks, who, with deep emotion, ac- knowledged the munificent gift and thanked the friends in Cardiff for all the kindness he had received during his five years' stay in this important town. We believe that .11 r. J, E. Billups was the first to suggest about two months ago the propriety of presenting Mr. Maddocks with this token of esteem. The meeting was a very pleasant one, and on the whole well attended, as the weather was most unfavourable. THEATRE ROYAL, CROCKHERBTOWN.—The theatre going community have had a treat this week in the appearance of the Bath and Bristol Comedy and Burlesque Company. The principal piece performed has been Paris "—a classical burlesque founded upon the contest of beauty among the goddesses, which was admirably rendered. The singing was excellent, and the beauty of the ladies who appeared as god- desses was not unworthy of the characters they appeared in. Mr. Vemon, Mr. Fosbrooke, Mr. Loome, and the other actors elicited the warmest applause. The costumes worn by the ladies are gorgeous, and the company, which is a strong one, were rewarded with good houses, full boxes, and applause, and bouquets thrown on the stage. ODDFELLOWSHIP.—The members and friends of the Loyal Tredegar Lodge celebrated their ninth anniversary on Monday the 15th, at the Four Elms Inn, Roath the decorations, &c, being as usual under the efficient manage- ment of Miss Benjamin, who spared no pains in giving the spacious club-room a pleasing appearance. There was a rich variety of flowers and evergreens also the elegant and much admired banner of the lodge was unfurled on the occasion. The repast consisted of the choicest delicacies of the season, reflecting great credit on the catering abilities of the worthy host and hostess. The cloth having been removed brother S. Hewitt, C.S. of the district was unanimously voted to the chair. He was supported on his right by brother R. Day, grand master of the district, and P.G's. Jenkins and Baggs; on his left by brothers J. Williams, P.P.G.M., brothers N. Harries N.G., P.G. Lodge, and Messrs. E. Joseph, and G. Moreton, members of the A.O F. The vice- chair being occupied by brother Hugh Smith, N.G. of the lodge, supported right and left by P.G.'s, Baugh, Kearns, Barter, Warren, Grainger, Benjamin, and brother Robins, V G. The chairman gave in succession the usual loyal and patriotic toasts, which were warmly received and responded to, followed by some excellent songs and recitations throughout the evening by brothers Williams, Barker, Ben- jamin, Grainger, and Jones The chairman then said it gave him great pleasure in proposing the toast of the even- ing, prosperity to the Tredegar lodge," coupling with it the name of an old and valued officer, brother J. Kearns, P.G. which was enthusiastically drank, which the Manchester brother, J. Kearns, responded to in a very appropriate speech, congratulating the members on the very flourishing and prosperous state of the funds. He said that he could assure them that they were second to none in the district, taking into consideration the youth and numbers of the lodge, and as a proof of the healthy state of the members he was proud to tell them that they had not paid out one penny in sick pay this year. He thanked them very kindly for the flattering manner in which they had drank his health, and concluded by proposing the health of a gentleman who was a veteran in the Order, and well known for his energy and perseverance in furthering the interests of the Order, and also much esteemed for his wholesome advice and frequent visits to the Loyal Tredegar Lodge. He had much pleasure in proposing the health of Brother Solomon Marks, P.P.G-M which was drank with the usual honours and eloquently acknowledged by Brother Marks, who expressed the pri'le he felt in visiting this Lodge, where he found everything carried out to the strict letter of the law; also such a friendly feeling existing amongst the brethren. The next toast was the Board of Directors and the G.M. of the Order, which was responded to by Brother J. Williams, P.P.G.M., in an able speech. The Town and Trade of Cardiff followed, and was responded to bv Messrs. Thomas and Bennett. The Chairman then gave the District Officers, which was responded to by Brother R. Day, G M. of the District, in a very appropriate and pithy speedi, setting forth the advantages of belonging to a society where every member had a voice in the management, and also giving such benefits to widows and orphans—for example, a member leaving a widow with four children would be entitled to the handsome bonus of £ 50,—i'30 for herself, and £ 5 for each „Viild The Manchester Unity at present numbered 411,000 members with a capital of over £ -2,000,0(i0. The CardiS District mustered 900 members, with a capital of i'8,00o. The Vice-Chairmau, in a feeling and complimentary speech, proposed the health of their Chairman observing that the high position ho held in the district was a sufficient guarantee that the right man was in the right place, namely, their chairman that evening, and trusted that before long he would occupy a still higher position in the Order, as a member of the Board of Directors Brother Hewitt responded in very appropriate terms, expressing the Satisfaction it gave him in bf-mg amongst them on this festive occasion, and re- ferring to the dignity mentioned by their Vice-Chairman, he could only say that if he had the honour of represent- ing this district at the next A.M.C., he would again try for the honour. He thanked them for the hearty manner in which they had drank his health. The Army and Jvavy" was responded to by Mr. E. Joseph, 1st Glamorgan Light Cavalry Volunteer Corps. Brother R. Day then gave the health of the Secretary of the Lodge, Brother J. Lewis, which was acknowledged in a brief but appropriate speech, quoting some statistics, numerical and financial, showing the rapid strides the lodge had made since he had held the office. The remaining toasts were the Visiting Brothers," responded to by Brother Baggs in a neat and humourous speech, concluding by proposing the health of their Vice- chairman, complimenting him on his activity and zeal in the Order, and Brother Smith responded; the "Host and Hostess," eloquently acknowledged by Brother Giles; Kinindrcd Societies," and a little aior" harmony, brought the happy evening to a close. PBDBSTRIANISH.-An exciting foot-race took place, on Saturday evening last, at Grangetown, between Frank Har- rison the butcher. and Charley Coombs, for £ 2 a-side. The distance was half a mile and half a mile in; the start- ing point being from the road leading to the Tanyard to the bridge, and back. Betting was even. The men, who were in good condition, started precisely at eight p.m., and for some distance kept pretty well together, but in the return, the tallest man, the butcher, came in at least 50 yards ahead. A good deal of money changed hands on the race. ST. SWITHIN'S DAY—Monday was the anniversary of St. Swithin, and as on former occasions the weather formed the subject of much comment, especially by rural folks. Many of these, although they knew little of the worthy Bishop of Winchester whilst he was in the flesh, yet retain a strong faith in the legend that the drenching showers on the loth of July, and for forty days afterwards, some 1200 > ears ago, prevented the busy monks from removing his Lody from the churchyard into the choir of the minister, and that the appearance of rain or any anniversary of this event por- tends, as Gay has it, that Twice twenty days shall clouds their fleeces drain. Should the popular belief prove correct this year, we may look out for a soaking time during the remainder of the pre- sent month and the greater part of next; for heavy showers fell at intervals during the morning, while towards the even- ing there were tremendous storms, attended with thunder and lightning. The bucolic mind must have been gladdened, since an old almanac tells us- The farmers praise St. Swithin come again To wet the crops with forty days of rain. WILL OF SiB. THOMAS PHILLIPs.-The will of Sir Thomas Phillips, Q.C., late of Gloucester-place, Portman- square, London, and Llanellea-house, Abergavenny, was proved in the London Court, on the 4th inst., by the execu- tors and trustees, Mr. William Page Thomas Phillips, bar- rister-at-law. his nephew; the Rev.

Sir Thomas bequeaths to his nephew, William P. T. Pkillips, his freehold estates, and leaves him the plate presented to him (the testator) for services rendered in sup- port of law and constituted authority during the Chartist disturbances at Newport; the rest of his plate he leaves to his sister, Mary Price, and also an annuity of £ 200. All the plate that are presentations he desires may remain in the family of his nephews and nieces as mementos. His books he divides between his nephews, William P. T Phillips and Thomas Phillips Price. To his nieces, Elizabeth and Mary Price, he leaves each a legacy of £ 6,000.

THE ABERAMAN IRONWORKS.—The following letter appears in the TimesSir,—My attention has been called to your report of this cause in The Times of the 10th inst., wherein you state that Crawshay Bailey, Esq., M.P., the proprietor, negotiated for the sale of them to me. Now the fact is that I purchased the estate, works, and minerals, together with all the plant, live and dead stock, including the ore raised to the surface-in fact, including everything upon the estate—for £ 250,000. I then sold the estate to the Credit Foncier Company for 1300,000.1 also on written contract, they making a Mr. Stansby their nominee in their assignment of purchase, and paid by check a deposit of £ 5,000, into the Imperial Bank in the names of our re- spective solicitors. I have not yet received one penny, neither have I any position with the parties at issue in Vice- Chancellor Malin's court. You will oblige me by publish- ing this statement, that I may in no way become prejudiced by the declaration that C. Bailey, Esq., M.P., only nego- tiated with me Otherwise I might be, from my position with the Credit Foncier Company. I am, sir, yours obedi- ently, MARK MARKWICH—Hall-court, Hurst-green, Ryde, Sussex, July 13."
