ABERGAVENNY. For e'en in the tranquillest climes, Light breezes will ruffle the blossoms sometimes." THE COLD WATER CUKE.—On Sunday night last, in consequence of some unpleasantness having arisen be- tween Mary Williams, servant of Mr. James Ellis, baker, of Abergavenny, and her mistress, the father of the former was sent for to see if parental authority could effect an equitable ad justment, and that peace might exist as unruffled as before. Between eleven and twelve o'clock, however, it was discovered by the anxious father that the giri had vanished, leading her candle in the bakehouse. She was vainly sought for in the house, and it was then too late and too dark to continue their search. On the same night, however, or early on Monday morning, two men were passing by the canal, and heard some one groaning. They followed the direction of the sound, and found on the bank a lot of female attire, and discovered, struggling in the water, the aforesaid Mary Williams, who, to remove the cause of the ill feeling, had resolved on drowning herself as a peace-offering, She was extricated from her pe- rilous situation, and carried to an adjoining house, where she soon recjvered her wonted strength of body and mind, and declared she never would again try to make away with herself LLANOFER COURT.—Since the hand of death removed, in his youth, the heir of Llanofer, and deprived the aristocracy of Monmouthshire of one of its most promising flowers, this mansion has been in a state of gloom, and the shroud of sorrow with which that melancholy event enveloped the family, has caused feelings of regret amongst the trades- people and those of the humbler classes. But happily man is so formed, that the wound which the removal of even an only son occasions is healed by religious consolation and time which gradually and benignly assuages the poignancy of grief. We are glad to find that their soothing Ifiuences are beginning to be experienced by the respected family of Llanofer. 1 hose of the tradesmen of Abergavenny who usually serve Llanofer Court participated, with their wives and daughters, on Wed- nesday last, of their courtesy and hospitality. The party, numbering nearly thirty, was most cordially received by the Rev. John Evans, vicar 0f Llanofer and after partaking of wine and cake, which was laid out in the hall, the housekeeper conducted the visiters over the house. Amongst the paint ings, which were greatly admired, the portraits of Sir Benja- min and his lady attracted most attention. In the library is a beautiful marble bust of the former. A ramble through the I pleasure grounds was proposed and reaiiily acceded to by all. They are all laid out in the most tasteful style imaginable and in consequence of the late genial weather, nature appeared in her most cheering apparel. The fountain, throwing its wa- ter to a height of 10 or 12 feet. so very small are the drops ejected, that it has at a distance all the appearance of a cloud. After tea, the shrubberies of Mrs. Waddington were perambu- lated and an invitation to go over her house was politely con- veyed by the worthy vicai, and readily accepted. Here there are many beautiful family portraits. On the return to the Court, a profusion of refreshments covered the dininp-room table, and while the party were enjoying the good things, a train of female domestics entered the room, and presented each visiter with a bouquet of flowers. The visiters left about half-past eight, after having spent a very delightful day. The kindness of her ladyship is a subject in many a home. This visit reminds us of the days when a more social feeling existed between the higher and middle ranks of society than is gene- rally to be found in our times. If similar invitations were given by the former, they would be gratefully felt by the latter and we should hear less of bickering against, those whom pro- vidence has more highly favoured than others, and see less misery amongst our poorer neighbours.—A Correspondent. <+--
