MONMOUTH. TB IBUTE OF RESPECT.—Our obituary this week records the (Ieath of the late Mr. James Hawkins, of Monmouth-a nanits, as f sjwiliar siv the otmnty, as was the respect paid to him who .bore it, by the inhabitants, more particularly, of our county town. Mr. Hawkins was the oldest tradesman of the town, .and during his yntivo course, he maintained a character of unblemished mtegvity, and moral worth. Kind-hearted to a fau It, his ear vva»s ever open, and his assistance prompt, to respond to the calls of benevolence and distress, as far as his means would allow. In the social circle, his peculiarities and humour made him a constant favourite. In politics, he was a firm, unwavering-1 ;eformer and in the corporation struggles of former years, h« bore his full share of the brunt whiclAhe leaders of that w arfare sustained. He ever fought side by side with his wort, ny compeers, all of whom, with one solitary exception, have pr eceded him to the tomb. At the obsequies of our departed fr lend, which took place on Wednesday last, his feiiow-townsir .en manifested their sense of his worth, and their regard for his memory, by closing their shops. The bells of bt. Mary 's poured forth a muffled peal; and a most respectable procf ssion of tradesmen preceded the funeral to the grave. BIBLE SOCIE' TY.—The Monmouth Auxiliary Bible Society held its anniver sary at Monmouth on Monday last. A public meeting was he Id at the Borough Court, at which the Rev. J. F. -Bt!ddy pre s'ded, and which was addressed by the Chair- man, the Rev. K \V Bingham, the (Reputation from the Parent ^odety, and Jh; Revds. T. Loader and C. Baker, Professor !N-hole field, H Clarke, and T. II. Walsh, Esqrs. The attend- ance was good and the collections were larger than usual. A \Y ELCOA E INTRUDER.-On Wednesday last,, a salmon reaped into a pleasure boat belonging to Mr. Williams, which -vvas lying nea ;• the quay. The guest shortly afterwards'graced tii eatable it so opportunely helped to furnish. THE WAI MEDALS.—These mementoes of our national le vic tories are at length being received by the surviving vete- rans of our n aval and military battles. William Thomas, an inma te of Jones's Almshouse, received his medal on Wednes- day 11st. Jt is silver, and somewhat larger than a crown piece. On cue side is a likeness of Queen Victoria, and upon the ot her taie figure of Britannia, seated 011 a sea monster, with h er trbdent 111 one hand, and an olive branch in the other. The 11a me of the ship, the Lion, which took the Gwilliam Tell in July, 1788, and for which action, the medal is awarded, is inscribe d on it, and the owner's name on the rim. A similar medal v ras received by William Dugmore, on Thursdav, who served i a the battle of Trafalgar, and which also bears his name, and the name of that brilliant action, upon it. John Maclean, an intelligent Irishman, blind, and obtaining a scanty livelihood by pedling, formerly a private in the 87th Foot, and a comrade of the late Quarter Master Carr, received a medal with five toxs appended to it, bearing the names of victories obtained a & Toulouse, Orthes, Nevclla, Vittoria, and Barossa, in which h e bore his share of the dangers and the triumphs. The medal be-ars on its reverse side, an inscription, "To the British art. 1)" and represents the Queen placing a wreath on the head of' Wellington, with the British lion at her feet and the dates of- the years 1793 to 1814.
