PEMBROKESHIRE SUMMER ASSIZES., These Assizes were opened on Wednesday, before Sir W. Fry Channel. His lordship arrived by the express from London, at about eight o'clock, and was met at the station hy the High Sheriffs of the county of Pem- broke, and of. the town of Haverfordwest. He pro- ceeded at once to his lodgings, accompanied by the Sheriffs and Deputy-Sheriifs, and a full escort of well-equipped javelin men. After a few minutes occupied in robing, he went to the Shire Hall, and opened the commission and then adjourned the court until half-past ten on Thursday morning. At nine a.m. yesterday he attended divine service at St. Mary's Church, where the assize sermon was preached by the Sheriff's Chaplain, the Rev. Mr. Garnold, rector of Bontfaen. Shortly after ten o'clock, his lordship took his seat on the bench. The usual proclamations having been read, and the grand juries for the town and county having been sworn, his lordship (in a low tone of voice, scarcely audible across the hail) addressed the grand jury for the county, com- menting at some length on the nature of the cases to come before them.
