TENBY. PEDESTRIAN FEAT.—Last week a gentleman wagered £100 against Irs., that Mr. Frederick Bowers, (third son of Mr. Bowers, Lion Hotel, Tenby), could not walk to Pembroke and back twice-a distance of 44 miles-in 10 hours The bet was immediately accepted and, joined by another young gentleman, Mr. Howell Williams, (who, by the bye, was far less punished than his companion), in ordinary dress, started for Pembroke. They stajed some time in the first journey, for breakfast and changing their apparel, but returned in time to win the £100, having 18 minutes to spare. Crowds of persons were at the Lion corner, waiting the arrival of the pedestrians, who, on their arrival, were heartily received with bravos and signs of approbation.
