NEWPORT DISPENSARY, At the July meeting of the Directors, held an Wedne?ay last, the Rev.

We trust that the handsome amount of the Reserved Fund" now in hand— £ 500—aided by the benevolent donations of the more affluent nnd charitable, will prove, at no distant period, tlie foundation of ;in Infirmary, suited to the increasing requirements of our town and connty. z, Monthly Report, ending May 31 Monthly Report* ending June 30 Under care Apl. 30 100 Under care May 31 121 Admitted since 158 Admitted since 148 —258 —269 Cured lid Cured 102 Relieved It) Relieved 10 Died 5 Died 8 Under care at present 121 Under care at present 149 -258 -269 ROBEIST F. WOOLLETT, Surgeon. Great Dock-street, July 4, IMD. NEWPORT CATTLE MARKET.—The market on Wednesday last, was rather rcantily supplied with fat stock, particularly as regards beef, which sold at about 54s. per cwt. The show of sheep was fair, at about old. In the pig market, small slips and porkers were in good demand, at remunerating prices. There were a good many small cattle from Ireland, that seemed much in want of nourishment, but few fat stock, appeared. The numbers were i-cattle, 105; sheep, 512; pigs, 129; calves, 6; horses, 9. CHOLERA.—The task of writing a bill of health for Newport this week, is a brief and pleasing one. Since our last publican tion, there have been two deaths from the epidemic, but no new case for the last three days. -Mr. English, the superin- tendent of police, whose important and indefatigable services have obtained so high a meed of public praise, and who certainly merits some more substantial proof of public favour, has had a violent attack of cholera; but through prompt and active remedial means, his life has been saved, and he is now nearly convalescent. The precautions and course of purifica- tion still go on with activity: twelve hundred cases of nuisance have been abated—a number of drains made-hives of hovels cleansed, whitewashed, and ventilated, and the aversion* to healthy ablutions so far conquered, that habits of personal cleanliness appear to be fast growing upon even the lowest classes of the town and neighbourhood. Pic N-ic.-We understand that a pic nic is to take place at Goldcliff hill, near this town, on Thursday, for the benefit of the Nash and Goldcliff Sabbath Schools. We have no doubt the charming character of the locality, and the benevolence of the object, will attract a large number of visitors. OPEN AIR TEA MEETING.—We understand that- the. ^'osleyans of the Newport; circuit, have planned a monster* open air tea meeting, to "be held upon a sunny spot lu the picturesque village of Bassalleg, on Wednesday next- Arrangements, upon a comprehensive scale, have been mado for the occasion, and, doubtless, happy crowds will wend their way to the rustic scene of enjoyment. The object of the gathering we believe, to defray some expenses recently incurred in extending the usefulness of the Wesleyan body in this district. MELANCHOLY AND FATAL ACCIDENT.-On Sunday last, as Mr. Thomas Morgan, a native of Cardigan, and captain of a vessel, called the Cardiii' Lass, now in that port, was proceed- ing to Newport in a phaeton, accompanied by a ship-broker, and another gentleman, the horse became restive, and took to flight at a fearful pace. Mr. Morgan, who was sitting behind, unfortunately jumped out, and falling with fud force on his head, suffered a concussion of the brain, from which, though professional aid was soon obtained, and the usual remedies adopted, he never rallied, death ensuing m a few hours after tlie ^sad occurrence. The verdict of a coroner s inquest held beiore TV m. Brewer, Esq on Monday was in accordance with the above facts. The deceased was very generally respected. PLEASURE TRIP.—In order to afford the inhabitants of Newport an opportunity of enjoying a healthy and delightful excursion over the most attractive portions of the channel the steam-packct "Eclipse" has been, we understand, well prepared for a pleasure trip from the Newport dock, on Mon- day morning llext.-See Adrertisenent. BURGLARY AT WOODLANDS, MALPAS—We have given a full report, in another column, of the examination and committal for trial to the assizes, of the gang charged with the commission of the above daring robbery. GCTT. PERCHA PENS The above valuable pens are con- sidered by those who have used them, a most admirable discovery.—oee Advertisement. The ex-king Hudson has given his engagements to the York and N or Ji Midland Company, for the difference of i3 per ton 011 rails, together \uth three years' interest for the amount overcharged which Mr. Orawshay, the present chairman of the Board, insisted on being added to the overcharge —Hera- path s Journal. Cr,ICKET.-We un.dersalld that the Newport Cricket Club is in course of re-formation, and that several of the gentlemen who heretofore Won laurels in many a hard-fousrht held, are again enrolled members. vnSjJnf■thlT!rT'0n FrilIay ]ast>the 2Stl1 ult,, the beautiful \aile> ot tlie Injmney resounded with the melodious niusio of the « v- tJl« ( Mably hounds.

Several gentlemen, among oni were Mr. Style, Mr. Morgan, of Ruperra, &c., were present, and enjoyed this spirit-stirring amusement. We iiave heard Pyscottwr say that this ferocious animal will destroy its own weight of fish in one night. When is our old correspondent going to redeem his promise of giving us a few chapters on the line old English sport of otter-nunting ? SACRILEGE AT ST. MELLONS.—On Saturday night last some daring fellows attempted an entrance into St. Mellons Church, near the beautiful village of that name, between Newport and Cardiff; and but for the bungling and evidently inexperienced manner in which the attempt was made, doubt- less the deed would have been accomplished. The'parties succeeded in forcing the outer door of the porch but were unable to get through the inner door. Next morning, the implements by w.nch the entrance to the porch was effected gave some intimation of the sort of persons concerned"; those implements were a kind of pick-lock, made of a piece of umbrella iron, and a rasp, which might have been used by a tinker. Added to this, that an umbrella-mender and knife- grinder, with two others, were seen in the neighbourhood just before, and that there is a quantity of old broken bell metal in the church, there is at once a suspicion established that the needy knife-grinder and his friends are a deuced deal more than they ought to be.
