We have a copious report of this most important case, which has been before the full Court-the Lord Chancellor and the two Lords Justices-for two days, and most ela- borately argued. The Lord Chancellor gave judgment on Tuesday last, giving his consent as protector, under the Fines and Recoveries Act," granting the prayer of the petitioner, Reginald James Blewitt, Esq., and thus CONFIRMING the arrangement and compromise entered into between him, Mr. and Mrs. Brinsley Dowling, and the official managers of the Monmouthshire and Glamor- ganshire Banking Company, by which, on the payment of a sum of money, under certain contingencies, Mr. Blewitt discharges his mortgage debt to them, and the LLANTARNAM ESTATE remains free and undisturbed + the family.—The late hour the report reached us, pro bits the possibility of our giving it in externa, in the .\i ERLIN of this week. EXEMPLARY BENEFICENCE.—We understand that ou respected Mayor, J. N. Knapp, Esq., with characteristic benevolence and consideration for the needy, has autho- risell a liberal supply of beef to the poor during the Christ- mas season. With equal taste and judgment, the Mayor has requested the ministers of the several religious denomi- nations in the town, te superintend the distribution of his bounty among the indigent of their respective congrega- tions a course which will doubtless insure its bestow- ment upon really deserving persons, while this compre- hensive kindness will gladden the hearts of many of our poorer neighbours, and certainly elicit the warm gratitude of the recipients. The Mayor has likewise oidered the distribution of 2 lbs. of prime beef, to each inhabit- ant of the Alms Houses, on Stow Hill. The Mayor's munificent charity is to be extended to all the chapels in the town, about seventeen, we believe, in number, the quantity of meat apportioned for each being 120lbs., with a double supply for the numerous poor of St. Mary's church. SEASONABLE BENEVOLENCE.-We are pleased to learn that R. F. Woollett, Esq., has again shown his usual kind- ness towards the inmates of the Newport Almshouse, by ordering each of them to be supplied with roast beef, patatoes, and a sum of money, at Christmas. James Brown, Esq., of Bryn Glas, entertained the officers of the 1st Devon Regiment, at dinner, on Wednes- day last. We are quite sure that these gentlemen convey the best wishes for their health and happiness, and will receive a hearty welcome in the Emerald Isle. DEGREE.—We have pleasure in noticing that Alfred George Morris, Esq., son of Thomas Morris, Esq., C.E., Stow-hill, Newport obtained a B.A.'s degree, at an exa- mination at Jesus College, Oxford, last week FIRST DEVON MILITIA-Tho officers and men belong- ing to this regiment proceeded this morning, by special train, to Birkenhead, where they will embark for Ireland. It is expected that their late quarters, at the Newport Barracks, will very shortly be occupied by the Clare Militia. FATAL ACCIDENT. On Monday afternoon last, a labouring man, about 72 years of age, was at work at a farm in the occupation of Mr. Matthews, in the parish of Bassalleg, when, by some mishap, he fell off a ladder about two feet from the ground. It appears that on fall- ing, he struck his leg, in which there was a sore place, and the wound bled so profusely that the unfortunate man died from loss of blcod before any assistance could be ren- dered. The name of deceased is Michael Woolley; he has been for some years an inhabitant of Pillgwenlly. He has left an aged widow to lament her bereavement. HEIGHTS OF BALAKLAVA.—Extract of a letter from Sergeant G. A. Ross, of the Grenadier Company, 82nd Prince of Wales' Volunteers, to his father, Mr. George Ross, of No. 50, Marshes-road, Newport, 28th Nov., 1835 .V KH All the soldiers in the Crimea are very thankful to the people in England for their kindness in getting them such good winter clothing, as they now have it consists of two pair of flannel drawers, two pair of socks, two flannel waistcoats, one pair of raittens, one pair of stock- ings, one oilcase coat, one pair of leggings, and hairy cap (to cover the ears and lap over the ueck)-it keeps us warm and comfortable. We are to get long boots up to the knees. The weather is very cold. The winter set in severely on the 21st inst., and it is raining or snowing ever since. Drunkenness is very prevalent here. The engine is running on the railroad now, anil it does a deal of work. The Turks run after it shouting Bono Johnny—Bono English.' There is a picquet of cavalry to keep the Turks off the line."
