A few ponies were shewn, some of which met cus. tomers at good prices. CHEPSTOW, FOREST OF DEAN, AND GLOU- CESTER JUNCTION RAILWAY.—The directors of this Company have given their engineer directions to make a complete sur- vey of the Forest of Dean, for the purpose of givitig the most perfect means of communication with the above railway which the state of the country and the wants of the district may re- quire. We understand that applications have bee-i made for 200,000 shares in twelve days, and that the Company has been offered the support of some of the most influential Railway Companies in the kingdom. CAERLEON FAIR, SEPT. 22, 1845,-This fair was held on Monday last, and, at an earlv hour, a great num- ber of beasts and sheep, of excellent quality, were driven into the town. Fat cows and steers sold readilv. at from £ d.to 6d. Prime sheep were eagerly purchased, and' realize" from 6d. to «id. Of pigs, the supply was moderate. Good stores were much inquired for. and sold well. Of the I10r.se fair, we are sorry not to be able to -eport so favourably, the number far exceeding the quatav however the dealers were busy, and horses having any claims to usefulness were readily disposed of We were happy to observe a numerous attendance of the principa) breeders and graziers of this and the adjoining coun- ties, as well as many of the leading butcuers, most of whom made purchases. On the whole,"it was more numerously attended than usual, as well as being the largest and best fair held at Caerleon for many years oast. Many of the graziers and farmers of this neighbourhood expressed their determina- tion to uphold the Caerleon mon'iily market, bj regalail} sending in supplies of stock. If SuCh a determination be. car- ried oiit, there can be no doubt, considering its situation, that this market will continue to flourish. INDEPENDENT ORDER OF ODDFELLOWS, M. U. —We understand that our respected Member, R.J. Blewitt. Esq., has bi^nified his intention of becoming a member of the above-named excellent institution. The initiation or the hon, Gentleman (of which due notice will be given), will take place at the Green House, Dantarnam. where a very nourishing lodge has lately been opened. The brethren expect a gala day upon the occasion. WILSON'S SCOTTISH ENTERTAINMENT AT NEWPORT-.—Last night. Mr. WitSO\l o-ave a rich entertainment on the songs of Scotland in our TownViall, which was attended by a great numbe-- of the gentry of Newport and the ne:gh- bourhood. The late period of th» week at which it took place, precludes us from enumerating the melodies selected for the occasion and IV" have only time to remark, that all were given with that rich humour and correct expression which have rendered M> Wilson's illustrations of favourite Scotch ballads so justly celebrated in all pan s of the country. TUITION,—IT will be seen, by an advertisement in this day's paper, that Mr. Hawkes, a gentleman bearing the most satisfactory testimonials is desirous of forming engage- ments in thin town for tear-hii' the Greek and Latin Classics, French, Drawing;, See. Mr. Hawkes has already under his in- struction several ladies and'sentlemen in Newpor', by whom, as his numerous pupils in Cardiff, his p»otessional abilities are spoken of in the most commendatory terms. We consider Jlr. Hawkes' system of teachine languages eminently adapted to promote their facile acquirement by his pupils; and have no doubt that it needs only to be more extensively known to be more generally appreciated.
