CARDIFF. REFUSING TO PROCEED TO SEA.—At the police court yesterday (before Mr. C. W. David, Mayor, Mr. W. D. Bushell, and Mr. G. Phillips), Richard Watts was charged with refusing, to go on board his ship after signing articles for two years. Another man named George Ponsford was also charged with the same offence. The magistrates thought it was a very serious thing for the men not to fulfil their contract, as it delayed the ships sometimes several days. They would therefore sentence Watts to six weeks' imprisonment with hard labour, and Ponsford to eight weeks' imprisonment. A' DRUNKEN PROSTITUTE.—Selina Fields was charged on remand, with being drunk and riotous in Bute-street, on Tuesday. The Bench sent her to gaol for three months. A CLAIM FOR WAGES. Richard Bacon summoned Thomas Greenwood for £ 4 '19s, wages due to him. The complainant said he had been aboard his ship for 13 weeks, and he was to have £ 2 5s. per month. The Captain had paid him part hut not the whole, and had given him sundry articles besides. The captain said said that com- plainant was not a good seaman, and he reduced his wages to 30s. per month. The bench made an order fiat the captain should pay 21 lis.
NEWPORT. LEGAL.-r. Frederick Vaughan, who served his clerk- ship to Mr. Robert James Cathcart of Newport, has been awarded a certificate of merit, after examination by the Council of the Incorporated Law Society. A FILTHY HOUSE.—Mr. H. P. Bolt made an applica- tion to the Borough Bench yesterday for an order against William Venn, baker and tripe seller, who had occupied a house under him, to cleanse and disinfect his premises. The Bench ordered defendant to give up the house at once, in ordjjr that it may be disinfected. MISCELLANEOUS CHARGES.James Speary and James James, for being drunk and disorderly, were each fined 10s. 6d., or 14 days. Richard Tasker was remanded on a charge of stealing rope from the barque Ottawa, now in the dock. Charles Hawkes was charged under a warrant with assaulting his wife and although the wife did not now desire to press the charge, the Bench sent the pri- soner to Usk for two months' hard labour. THREATENING AN ALDERMAN.—William Venn was summoned yesterday, for threatening and using violent lan- guage towards Alderman Townsend, at his warehouse, Merchant-street, on Thursday morning. The Alderman stated that defendant had got into a house at Maindee in which he complainant was interested, and had taken ad- vantage of a woman in order to do so. By means of an ingeniously drawn up document he had endeavoured to get into the house as a yearly tenant, and had consented to pay the rent to him in redemption, of the mort- gage which he (Alderman Townsend) had on the house. Defendant came to his office, ridiculed and abused him in a fearful manner, and therefore he asked the Bench to restrain him from such acts. When he ordered defendant out of his office he refused to go, and it was with difficulty that he kept himself from violently ejecting the defendant, who threatened to tear his b brains out. He went on in this way for at least ten minutes on that account he wished the Bench to deal with him. Mr. Woolett I suppose you are afraid of him, Mr. Townsend? Mr. Alderman Townsend: I don't say that, for I was never afraid of any man in my life but I don't wish to be subjected to such an annoyance again.—Mr. Phillips You wish him bound over to keep the peace.—Alderman Townsend: Certainly; he isn't fit to be at large.—Defendant entered upon a long statement as to the reason why he went to Mr. Townsend's office. He went there to demand from him a stamped agreement which had been drawn up by Mr. Edmunds, the druggist, and of which complainant had robbed him. He had no fight to steal this document and destroy it.—The Chair- man You had no business to go to Mr. Townsend s office; and we must bind you over to keep the peace, in the sum of £ 20.—Defendant: I'll bring an action against him. APPREHENSION OF AN ALLEGED SHEEP-STEALER. In- spector Sheppard of the Newport Division of the county police, succeeded in apprehending a man, who gave the name of Hjthcox, on a charge of having stolen seven fat sheep frona| Mr. Bennett, of Penbont. The man will be brought before the county police to-day (Saturday.
ABERDARE. MR. R. H. RHYS, J.P.—We are informed this gentle- man met with an accident in London a few days since. He was knocked down by a cab. His friends will be glad to know he is now recovering from the shock he received. FOUND DROWNED.—Another man was found in the Cynon on Thursday night. A lad on his way home from work perceived the corpse and raised an alarm. The body was got out by the police. The deceased has been recognised as Griffith Watkin, a pattern-maker at Pentrebach until three weeks ago. He then left for Neath, but nothing had been heard of him for more than a fortnight, until found in the water. If our information is correct, he has left six children, who were taken to the Union after his disappearance. His wife died three months ago. ———
TREHERBERT. READINGS.—Another of these entertainments was held at the British School-room on Thursday evening last. Mr. T. W. Dalgleish in the chair. The programme con- tained an excellent selection of pieces, which were admi- rably rendered. ———
GLYNARTHEN. FATAL ACCIDENT.—A:«t accident which unfortunately proved fatal to a woman named Rachel Thomas, a few days ago at this place. It seems that she went to a farm on business, and getting close to a thrashing-machine, her clothes became entangled, whereby she was so much in- jured as to cause death ———
TREDEGAR. ACCIDENT.—On Thursday an old man of the name of Edward Pinch met with a serious accident through a fall in the Globe pit. We regret that he is still in a pre- carious state. Pinch is the oldest workman under the Tredegar Iron Company.
BLAENAVON. FIRE.-An alarming fire broke out on Thursday night in the shop of Mr. J. P. Jones, tailor and outfitter, Broad-street; but, although at one time the occurrence threatened to lead to a great destruction of property, the flames were extinguished before they had extended to the ftdjoining house. —
J ° MAESYCWMMER. A SUCCESSFUL Fox HUNT.—On Thursday the hounds of Mr. G. W. G. Thomas, of Ystradmynach House, had a successful run, which afforded" some_ capital sport, tally ho being given at Craig-y-praishaid, in the Sirhowy Valley, by a nephew of the veteran huntsman W. Davies, of Clawrplwyf, from whence Reynard led them off at a rattling pace down to Machen mountain, back to Penylan, Gellydeg Ucha, back to Machen again and Penylan, thence over the Gwerna land, crossing the turnpike and Brecon and Merthyr Railway, by the Boot gate, through the above wood, crossing the garden of Mr. Jenkins, round the factory, where the hounds seemed to gain fresh vigour, and skirting the bank of the river, up towards the Fleur-de-Lis, but near the Prince, Reynard having doubled, the dogs were at fault for a moment, but quickly recovering the scent the pace became faster, and at last was heard the welcome sound of those who were in at the death, Yoicks." Amongst those present we noticed Miss Sanderman, Mr. G. W. G. Thomas, Mr. T. Thomas, &c. Mr. Watkin Waters had a narrow escape in taking a fence, his horse fell, and he unfortunately under, but happily escaped from receiving any serious injury. Mr. G-. Thomas generously presented the pedestrian hun- ters with a sovereign, and Mr. W. Waters gave them ten shillings to drink the healths of Mr. Thomas and Mr. Waters, at the Traveller's Rest. Huntsmen Daniel Lewis and Simons were well to the fore, but the palm must be awarded to Miss Sanderman, for her undoubtedly clever equestrian skill We trust that we may be enabled to record at some future date other successful ruus, and sincerely hope that a more extended notice may be given of the next meet.
HOLIDAY IN CARDIFF.-THE MAYOR'S PRECEPT. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. Blu,-I do not know how things are managed in this town, or who the principal tradesmen" that have expressed themselves to our Mayor may be; but find- ing were is a great disinclination amongst my neighbours to close their places of business on Tuesday next, and employing a large number of workpeople, who are still more disinclined to lose a day's wages, I intend to keep Ifpen my establishment as usual. At the same time, had a meeting been convened, and a majority of my fellow-tradesmen expressed themselves in favour of a general holiday, notwithstanding the recom- mendation to the contrary from the higher powers, I .hmild have fallen in with a common desire.- Yours, &c., CMjSfi, Feb, 23rd, 1872. TRADESMAN.
CARDIFF BOARD OF HEALTH. The monthly meeting of this Eonel was held yester- day at the Town Hall, and was attended by the Mayor (in the chair), Aldermen Watkins, Eeece and Evans, and Councillors E. Whiffet), D. Jones, J. McConnochie, R. Spencer, H. North, S. D. Jenkins, W. Yacliell, and H. Bowen. The minutes of the last monthly and ad- journed meetings were read and approved of. The Collector for St. Mary reported that he had col- lected of rates and arrears up to the last monthly return £ 1,583 16s. 9d.; collected during the month i'1,192 2s. 10d.; leaving a balance outstanding of £ 2,369 10s. 5d. He had also received £ 24 8s. on account of private improvements, leaving a balance of X12 7s. 4d. The collector for St. John's reported that he had received £ 537 2s. 7d. at the date of the last return, and had since collected £ 385 lOn., which left a balance of X944 16s. due upon rates aud arrears. He had also received -37 8s. lid. on account of private improvements for which X321 10s. 4d. was still owing. The reports of the Finance, Public Works, and Cab Committees were read and ado-oted.-Aidermaii EVANS referred to the delay which had occurred in commencing the Street Tramways, and the Borough Surveyor re- plied that the engineer of the company had been in the town for some days, and he believed the work would be commenced as soon as the granite stone, which was on its way, arrived.—The Cab Committee stated that they had fixed the 9th and 10th April for the annual inspec- tion of cabs.—Mr. WIIIFFEN complained of the condition of some of the cabs at the Great Western Station, and the MAYOR recommended that he shou'd make his com- plaint specific and not general, as some of the other members did. THE HEALTH OF THE TOWN. The MAYOR read the monthly report of the Officer oJ Health (Dr. Paine), who was unable to attend the meet- ing. It was as follows :— I have to report that the total deaths registered in Cardiff during the four weeks ending February 17th, has been 75, indicating a mortality at the rate of 23 in the 1,000. These deaths have been occasioned as follows :— Diseases of the brain and nervous system, 2 ditto chest, 19 ditto heart, 1; ditto abdominal cavity, 4 fever, 3 scarlet fever, 2; measles, 17 small-pox, I- croup, 2 hoaping cough, 1; dyptheria, 2 atrophy, 8 teething, 2 scrofula, 1; age, 5 and inquests, 5; total, 75. The above analysis shows that, although the death rate of Cardiff during the past month has been one per 1,000 in excess of the ordinary death rate ruling a town popula- tion, this excess is occasioned by the existence of infantile epidemic measles, which disease alone contributed 17 deaths, or 30 per cent. of total deaths and as this is a disease which will from time to time occur, and is one which sanitary provisions cannot control, the sanitary condition of the town may be considered in a very satis- factory state. Three deaths have been registered from fever, but of these two were infantile, and one an adult. Only one death has been occasioned by small-pox, namely, a seaman admitted in the Seamen's Hospital. Six cases of small-pox have been reported to me during the month, namely, three occurring in vessels arriving in the port, suffering from the disease two cases imported into the town from rural districts, and one an inhabitant of the town. The whole of these have been removed into the Seamen's Hospital, and are now, with the exception of one fatal case, under treatment. I have every reason to believe that no other cases of small-pox have occurred in the town, as, owing to the courtesy of my professional brethren, all cases are reported to me. The existence of the Small-pox Hospital has enabled me to deal with this disease, in a most satisfactory manner, by immediately isolating the individual cases, and placing the houses from which they have been removed under a careful dis- infecting process and subsequent sanitary supervision." The health of the town was considered by the Board generally to be in a most satisfactory state, considering the severitv of the small-pox epidemic in adjacent places.—Alderman EVANS mentioned that there had been one death from small-pox in Loudoun-square since the date of the report. MISCELLANEOUS IMPROVEMENTS. The Borough Surveyor read his monthly report, which contained various recommendations for improve- ments in various parts of the town. In reference to one of them—the making of a pitched crossing at the north end of Mount Stuart-square, entering into West Bute-street—the MAYOR read a requisition from the in- habitants of the square urging the necessity of the work being done. An order was given that the crossing should be made.—The Surveyor recommended that the pitching should be taken up in Stuart-street and relaid, and that a similar order should be given in re- ference to various streets in Newtown and Bute-town. —Mr. JONES thought they had enough on their hands at present, as orders had already been given which they could not complete in six months. Alderman WATKINS at some length called attention to the necessity of laying down a pavement on the west side of St. Mary-street, from the circus building to the entrance to the Great Western Station. It was one of the most important entrances to the town, and at most times was a perfect quagmire. He also urged the laying down of a crossing from Mr. Gover's corner to Mr. Lisle's foundry, and asked that the Wharf should be properly scavenged, as at present the scrapings of several days were allowed to accumulate there. Several members agreed as to the necessity of improving that portion of St. Mary-street, but it was pointed out by the Surveyor that it was necessary first to know what the railway company intended to do with Mr. Gover's corner, for unless that was set back they would not know what line to take for the much-needed pavement. They all knew that the Great Western and Taff Vale Companies had been negotiating for the construction of a new station, and he thought the plan might be suffi- ciently far advanced for him to ascertain their intention in regard to Mr. Gover's corner. Mr. JONES agreed with the Surveyor, and also thought it was necessary that the proposed pavement should be raised, as the present path was too low.—The Surveyor was ordered to pre- pare plans, and obtain information on the matter. Mr. S. D. JENKINS said that as he had failed to bring about any improvement of the droppings from the rail- way bridges, he was desirous of- knowing if the stream of water which flowed over the pavement at the Rhym- ney Bridge in Crockherbtown could not be remedied so as to prevent pedestrians from having wet feet. The Surveyor, after some discussion, was directed to see Mr. Lundie, the traffic manager. Inspector James, the inspector of lodging-houses and nuisances, applied for an increase of salary. Alderman WATKINS, Mr. NORTH, the MAYOR and the Surveyor all bore testimony to the highly satisfactory manner in y which Inspector James performed the duties of his office, and it was pointed out that they were of an im- portant character, as he had to see to the removal of small-pox patients, and execute other duties attended with risk. Alderman WATKINS proposed and Alderman REECE seconded that his wages should be increased from 30. to -62 a week, and the proposal was unani- mously agreed to. The MAYOR stated that the Atlas Insurance Company were preparing the necessary documents in connec- tion with the new arrangement regarding the repay- ment of the loan. X59,686 was the amount now owing. It was proposed that the half-yearly payments should be fixed for the 1st of May and the 1st of November, which would be the most convenient time to the Board —being about six weeks after the making of each of their rates.-This was agreed to. THE PRAINAGE ACROSS THE TAFF. The MAYOR said they had completed their system of drainage for the town, and it was now for them to con- sider the scheme for carrying a sewer across the Taff. When they have done that they would have completed their whole system, and he believed they would have secured a system of drainage equal to any which could have been devised. The Borough Surveyor then presented a series of plans which he had prepared for draining the whole of the borough west of the Taff river, and for connecting the new drains with the Cardiff system of sewers by carry- ing a culvert and weir across the Taff river. In reply to Alderman REECE, Mr. Waring said the weir would be erected exactly midway between the Great Western Railway bridge and the Penarth-road bridge, and it wou d cost about 40,000.-Alderman BEECE asked what it would cost to keep in repair.—The Surveyor said it would not cost much.—Alderman REECE said he had had something to do with a weir, and lie found it was a most expensive thing to keep in proper condition.—The MAYOR said that was probably owing to its not being properly made at first.—The Surveyor, in reply to further ques- tions, said the level pool caused by the weir would terminate at the top of the Sophia Gardens. The water would be 8ft. Gin. deep at the weir, and 3 feet deep under Cardiff bridge.—Mr. JONES said the depth at the weir would be reduced in the course of time, in conse- quence of the silting up, but that would strengthen the weir.—Several members thought that it would make a fine sheet of water.—The MAYOR said it was a most important matter, and one which would require a great deal of consideration. He proposed that the plans should be referred to the Public Works Committee, and that a special meeting should afterwards be called .to take them into consideration. Mr. McConnechie, Mr. Jones, and Mr. Waller were practically acquainted with the matter, and after they had considered it, the board would be better able to deal with it. If they could carry out the scheme at a reasonable cost, it would complete their system of drainage, and make it unsur- passed by any other. The suggestion was adopted, and Mr. G. Fisher was added to the committee. Mr. SPENCER asked for information in regard to the old Vicarage, which was about to be pulled down and was informed that the Board were to pay £500 for a portion of the ground occupied by it. That portion would be thrown into the roadway for the improvement of the street. Mr. SPENCER intimated bi3 intention of calling attention to the necessity of widening Working- street, which was a most important thouroiighfare, and likely to become much more so as soon as the tramway was laid ctowii.-The MAYOR said it was certainly a most important subject.—This was all the business.
MARRIAGE OF DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. The Bill which seeks to make marriage with a de- ceased wife's sister legal, was read a second time on Wednesday. In our brief notice of the measure, on Thursday, we urged the advisability of passing the Bill, and we gladly supplement the remarks then made by a full report of the speech delivered on the occasion by Mr. Henry Richard, in the belief that it will prove in- teresting to the public at large, and to his constituents in particular. The hon. gentleman said :-1 have listened with great attention and interest to three de- bates on this subject since I have had the honour of a seat in this House, and my impression is that therh is scarcely any question brought before us in respect to which justice, and reason, and the interests of morality are so entirely on the one side; while.on the other side it seems to me there is little but prejudice and sen- timent, no doubt very sincerely entertained, and therefore entitled to every respect. This is not the place to deal with the theological or religious aspects of the case. We cannot here enter upon dis- cussions as to the meaning and force of Hebrew words and nice points of scriptural exegesis. I will, therefore, make only this one remark on that part of the question, that while I am aware, of course, that there is a differ- ence of opinion as to the interpretation of the Levitical law, as, unhappily, there is in reference to almost every passage within the coveis of the Bible, around which any controversy has raged, my conviction is, after a careful study of the subject, that there is an enormous preponderance of evidence, both as respects argument and authority in favour of those who maintain that these marriages are not prohibited by the Divine law but that, on the contrary, they are, by clear implica- tion and inference, allowed (hear, hear). The hon. member for West Kent has attempted to found an argu- ment on this expression, They twain shall be one flesh." But that is so obviously a mere figure of speech, and any attempt to apply in its literalness, would lead to such gross absurdities, that I can hardly think the hon. gentleman could have been serious when he brought it forward. Mr. TALBOT said it was the Bishop of Peterborough's argument, not his. Mr. RICHARD But the hon. gentleman, I suppose, adopted the Bishop's argument, otherwise he would not have submitted it to the house. But if the divine law does not prohibit these marriages, what right have we to import the prohibition into English law ? (hear, hear.) But what are the other auguments em- ployed by hon. gentlemen who oppose the Bill of my hon. and learned friend? Well, really they oan hardly be called arguments, for they consist of a large array of those wild, vague, extravagant prophecies and appre- hensions of the consequences that are to follow from a change of the law, in which hon. gentlemen opposite are accustomed to indulge in resisting every proposed reform, whether in Church or State, (hear, hear). We are told that it will be in- jurious to our social and domestic morality, and pictures are drawn of what is likely to take place in our family life, which are certainly not complimentary to the honour of Englishmen or the purity of English women. But who are the parties likely to have the deepest interest in, and to feel the most anxious solici- tude for the social and domestic morality of the people of this country ? Are they not the religious bodies who have, as it were, special charge of the morals of the people ? But are they opposed to this change in the law which we advocate ? Nothing of the kind (hear, hear). There is no doubt a section of the clergy of the Church of England who are opposed to it. But there is another large section, not lesh entitled to re spect, who are strongly in favour of it (hear, hear). And there is no body of Nonconformists in England who have not protested against the law as it stands, some by resolutions passed or petitions presented to this House, and others in a manner if possible still more significant, by refusing to pass any ecclesiastical censure or disap- proval on those who transgress the law (cheers). I say, further that this law has not the support of public opinion, the best proof of which is that those who vio- late it are not regarded as having committed an immoral act, and do not lose their place in society. I listened as I always listen with interest to the hon. member for the University of Cambridge. It is impos- sible not to admire the gallant spirit with which he always rushes into the front, to oppose every reform that is proposed in this House, especially on subjects that have any canonical or ecclesiastical tone about them (cheers and laughter). If I may be forgiven a pun, I should say that he deserves to be called the for- lorn" Hope" of Ecclesiastical Toryism (laughter). But to-day he has done manifest injustice to the statement of the hon. member for Hull, as to that remarkable testimony given by women in favour of this Bill. He said that it was a political meeting called to pat the number on the back, and to endorse whatever he said. But the hon. member for Hull distinctly pre- faced his remarks by saying that the meeting in ques- tion was not a political meeting. I will not trespass furfher on the attention of the House. Believing as I do, that the prohibition we are anxious to remove has no warrant in any law of nature or of God, that it is not sustained by the opinion of the best and most reli- gious portion of the people of this country, that it inflicts cruel hardship upon a large and most honour- able and worthy people, and especially that it is pro- ductive of great misery and social evil to the lower classes of the community, I shall on this occasion, as I have on former occasions, without hesitation and with the utmost confidence give my vote in favour of the second reading of this Bill (cheers).

LATEST COMMERCIAL AND MARKET I INTELLIGENCE. MONEY MARKET.—FRIDAY. The easier tendency of the value of money, since the publication of the Bank return is gradually strengthening the Home Funds, which are about 1-16 better than at yesterday's close. In other respects there is little to no- tice in Stock Markets. The demand for discount is quiet, the medium rate .for shorttime bills being nearer 2| than 27 The increase of a little over a million in the public de- posits, as shown in the Bank return, and the decrease of about the same amount rn the other deposits, as regards effect, cancel each other. The repayment of loans has caused a decrease of tl20,732 in the other securities, and the result of the operations for the week ending Wednes- day was to leave tha total reserve stronger by £ 78,632. The traffic receipts of the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada for the week ending February 17 show an increase of 22,200. The receipt of a telegram in the Stock Markets from New York stating that the American Government refuses to withdraw upon the question of the Alabama indirect claims, and that they are affirmed, caused a sudden fall in all securities shortly after midday, not, however, to a serious extent. Consols are fully lower, and the decline in other respects ranges between £ and -J per cent. The excitement at first was considerable, but it has greatly subsided. LONDON CORN MARKET.—FRIDAY. The Corn Exchange to-day was thinly attended by millers, and the business actually transacted was insigni- ficant, in consequence of the wet weather. The supply of English wheat was short, and the condition indifferent, while from abroad the arrivals were only moderate. Trade was quiet, and on the whole the tendency of prices was unfavourable. BARLEY.—Malting barley was rather easier to purchase, but grinding parcels maintained their value MALT was dull, but not quotably lower. OATS.—There was good supply of oats, which changed hands slowly at about previous quotations. MAIZE experienced a limited inquiry on former terms. BEANS and PEAS were inactive and in some instances slightly cheaper. FLOUR.—The flour trade was quiet, but prices were without appreciable alteration.

HLORALUM W 15, Pembroke-road, Dublin, 11th September, 1871.-Sir, I beg to state that the Chloralum powder and solution have been largely employed in this city, and with the most complete result. The bed of the river Liffey, which emitted a very offensive odour during the recent warm weather, was most satisfactorily disin- fected by Chloralum powder, at the rate of only one pound per 25 square feet. I have found it most efficacious as a purifier of stables, and I use it constantly in my own house. Altogether, I may say of Chloralum that it is a very valuable sanitary agent, and one which is certain to come into general use.-I remain, your obedient servant, Chas. A.

Chloralum in hospital has been used at the Royal Infirmary, Manchester, to destroy the fcetor in cases of open cancer; at Middlesex hospital in amputations in small-pox and fever wards generally, as the most pleasant and most active disin- fectant. Chloralum is an astringent antiseptic applied to foul ulcers by London surgeons, as a gargle in scarlet fever, diphtheria, and common sore throats, and has been found invaluable in in* flammation of the eyes, &c. 0IILORALUM DEODORISES. ^JHLORALLM is HARMLESS! i HLORALUM in FEVERS. i ">HLORALUM can be relied on by horsemen in wounds and in* V_V juries, and by fanners in the treatment of foot-and-mout'1 disease, and in carrying on disinfection in their homes stables, cowsheds, pigsties, and poultry houses.
