THE BOMBAY CRISIS. Next to the United States themselves the hor- rors of the now terminated civil war have fallen most heavily on this country. In a slight degree France, it is tiue, has suffered from the suspension of cotton manufacturers, but certainly not to such a degree as this country. The cotton famine is • may we say over, and that commodity will very shortly glut our markets. The special relief con- tributed by all qua ters of the globe to the sud- denly pauperised Lancashire operatives has this week been finally discontinued. The dist ict fa- milia:ly cailed "cotton" has been improved in the interval by useful public works, and the health and physique of the population not less benefitted But even now we htve not yet known all the distress which may lairly be attri- buted to the Ame ican civil war; and what is worse, nations will, to some extent, share in the continuance of the pressure. Wlie ever climate promts d to (avoir the growtli 01 cotton, II e e capital has been embarked to foster its cultiva- tion Egypt has p,omised some, and India mo e, while even other districts have made a not un- successful attempt. Bom-ay alone has e lised during the last th, ee years as many millions by cottLn, and there the surrender of Ge ieral Lee has already caused a financial crash which it is feaiful to c mtemplate. We may indeed hope that the ruin is not so far spread as is described, but an unhealthy and feve ish speculation had taken so deep hold on the people that the reaction must be of unwonted p; opo tions. The rush ot trade whic cotton promised to our Bombay merchants fed them for the past th ee years with extravagant hop.. s, and even th ViO- yerr ot of the Presidency seems to have sha ed the p evaient opinio(i that good things were in sto e lot many years. The influx ol wealth ren- dered it imposs ble for pe sons with fixed incomes to live decently, and at the commencement of this year only famine and its atte dant hor ors seemed to threaten the island. Land for building purposes t ecame valuable—fetched indeed p ices almost unheard of in the Metropolis. In orde to keep pace with the demand, reckless schemes of reclamation were set a foot, and companies started to recover waste, indeed pestiferous t acts floated their shares at a premium only to see them run up to ten or fifteen times their nominal vaILe. One native house, that of the .Jejeeboys, is said to have doubled an eno mous capital by prudently reti ing from the speculative scramble in time, and oue ba..k is cu'ren'ly reported to have lent all its capital and all the deposits of its customers on land ce tificates, tow compa atively valueless. The few have I ealised more than ample fortunes, but the majo ity sire wo se than beggars. The next mail will probably b ing fu the i particulars of the Bombay panic, from wiikh we may be able to gather some idea of the extent of ruin. In the meantime Ave may offer two or th, ee iemarks to show that the disaster is not irremediable and need not be permanent. In the first place it cmnot be doubted that the trade in cotton must have done some real good. Three millions -f money cannot have found its way to Bombay without pioducing a healthy stimulus to t ade In the next pi ce there is no real ieagon for the discontinuance of cdtton cul- tivation because the markets of the Southern States are again open to the world. c have heard that some cotton grown in India has teen offered in tf lis country of a far bette, description than any grown in America, the fibre longer, stronger, and cleaner. And we do no doubt that what private enterprise has accomplished in one case on a small scale can be easi y done in a more extensive ma ner. The complaint has been that cleanliness has not been attended to, in a word that tIe picking has I cen defective, and the packing still worse, but we believe great 11 9 improvements have been al eady effected and that little was left to be desired. In the third place the transfer of money f om one hand to anothe is attended with no ieal loss, it remains in Bombay s; ill. The real trade too of Bombay cannot t e affected hy a speculative nutria, such .s it was befo e cotton claimed the attention of the merchants such it must be again, while the enter- prists of mechanical and engineering skill which have been commenced will not "nd cannot be wholly without effect. Admitting then to the fullest extent the fearful n,ture of the crisis which has befallen Bombay we are not di-posed to take so gloomy view of the matter as some of our contemporaries. Every cLud has a silver lining.
THE ELECTION IN NORTH WALES. Our present parliament has now only a short fortnight to continue, and as the time of its dis-o- lution draws nearer, so does the anxiety of con- stituencies intensify. Hitherto, no fresh aspirant has offered himself for these (v arnarvonshire) Boroughs, and now, unless tho great landed pro- prietors coalesce, Mr. Bulkeley II ughes will have, in our opinion — as we stated last week — a quiet walk over, and the boroughs will be saved the turmoil usual at a contested election. We also learn that the preliminary canvass for the County of Merioneth has been made by both candidates, and its returns leave no doubt upon our mind as to the result. We hear that Mr. Wynne, junior, has returned to Peniarth, after his canvass, and we hope the se- clusion of his hospitable home will enable h m to reflect calmly upon its results. If it does, we can- not doubt he will save his friends the trouble, and himself the disappointment, which must result from a contest. jfe'tln Anglesey there is every appearance that the present members will be quietly re-elected. Indeed, we are sure, for the peace and well being of the county, it is the best ccurse. Sir R. W. Bulkeley has too strong a hold on the county as a kind-hearted man to be easily ousted; and it is also well known that he has consented to con- tinue its representative, by the earnest solicitation of friends. We, however, wish that Sir Richard would be what he was when first elected, and that he would not allow excited feelings to over-ride his maturer reason. As to the Honourable Mr. Stanley there is not a more fearless supporter of progressive advancement in the House of Com- mons, and though at times his home politics clash with those of some of his constituents, we are sure the Liberal party will not find a more consistent representative among the gentlemen of Anglesey. In the other Northern Welsh Counties all re- mains serene, although, at times, we hear, that a few Liberal seats are threatened by a Tory oppo- sition. We hope, however, a judicious determi- nation to "let well alone," will operate—especially in Flintshire, where the most convincing proofs were given by the electors on the last occasion that a retrograde movement would receive no sympathy. Shortly before going to press, or rather to the machine, we received an intimation from Mr. Beaver Roberts (as will be seen from our adver- tising columns) of his intention to retire from the approaching election for these boroughs. He says he does so because another candidate in the conservative interest has appeared, which lessens his chances of success; that he retires with the full determination of appearing again when an opportunity offers, thus illustrating the old adage, That he who fights and runs away, Will live to fight another day." We have not, however, received the address of the mythical candidate referred to by Mr. Beaver Roberts, nor do we expect to receive such an ad. dress this week.
CARNARVONSHIRE. CARNARVON.—The Stride amon-Qst the Shoemakers.- On Monday evening last, the master shoemakers of this town assembled at the house of Mr. Thomas Ensor, Bangor-street, to discuss the advance claimed by the workmen. On the motion of Mr. John Williams, se- conded by Mr. Henry Edwards, it was unanimously re- solved that Mr. John Hughes be elected to the chair. After a few words from the chairman, Mr. Thomas Ensor proposed that they, as master cordwainers, should accede to the advance, consequently the public would of course not think it unreasonble of them to raise the price of shoes, as they were driven to the step by their workmen. The resolution was seconded by Mr. Morns Williams. We understand that all the men have gone to their respective shops, and that a fair understanding now exists between master and man.
Nuptial Festivities at Criccieth. THE MARRIAGE OF GRIFFITH H. OWEN, ESQ., OF YMWLCH, TO MISS RADCLIFFE. Thursday last being the day appointed for the cele- bration of the above auspicious event at Oldham, the inhabitants of Criceieth and the surrounding neighbour- hood determined to embrace the opportunity for the expression of their feeling of regard towards Captain Owen, of Ymwlch and the young lady Miss Radchffe, who was united with him that day in the bonds of matrimony. Great were the preparations that had been made at the ancient town of Criccieth for several days pre- viously, the inhabitants vieing with each other in decorating their houses, erecting arches, &c., &c. A commodious tent was erected on the Green for the purpose of supplying all the teachers and young children belonging to the various schools with tea and all its concomitants, and although libatory proceedings commenced before two o'clock the tent was as full as possible at seven o'clock in the evening. We under- stand that upwards of eight hundred persons enjoyed themselves with the cup that cheers but not inebriates. The tables groaned under the weight of good things, which the children despatched with characteristic heartiness, and all testified their giatitude to the gentle- men who composed the working committee for the treat. The other tent was errected on the common, opposite the White Lion Inn. The nave was 92 feel, long by 20 feet broad and the two transepts were to feet by 30 feet. It was most tastefully decorated under the superintendence of Mr. Anwyl Owen, with flags, flowers and evergreens, and was designed by Mr. W. Watkin, the hou. secretuy the contractors were Messrs. Thomas and Jones, builders. Motoes were hung in different parts of the building, and above the presi- dent's chair Prosperity and long life to Capt G. H. Owen and his amiable bride," Hir oes i'r milwr dewr a'r Gwladwr da," "God save the Queen," "Tra mor tra Brython," "Welcome." The tables were most plentifully provided and tastefully laid out by Mr. and Mrs. Williams, of the White Lion Hotel, and the whole affair reflected the highest credit upon the culinary resources of the establishment. A' half past two o'clock the No. 4 Company of the Carnarvonshire Rifle Volunteers arrived in town headed by their band and commanded by their gallant Captain E. W. Matthew, in full Marching Order, and were re- ceived by the thousands assembled with lieu ity cheers. In a few minutes afterwards No. 5 under the command of Captain Picton Jones, also arrived, headed by their band and were as warmly welcomed. The work:ng committee had specially engaged the services of the Carnarvonshire and Anglesey Militia Band, a number of which started from the Royal Sports- man Hotel, Carnarvon at ten o'clock in an omnibus drawn by four greys, with outriders, and arrived at Criccieth about half past one, under the conduct of Mr. Watts. It was evident that this band was very popular as it was followed everywhere by hundreds of people. THE DINNER IN THE PAVILION. At half past three o'clock, the chairman Captain E. W. Matthew with the vice-chairman Capt. Picton Jones took their respective situations, but as there were alto- gether six tables, two running along the whole length of the Pavilion, and four others two on each side of the chairman it was thought advisable to elect a vice- chairman for those also, consequently the arrangement stood thus :—The principle table Capt. E. W.Matthew, as chairman assisted in the vice by Capt. Picton Jones; second table, E. Anwyl Owen, Esq., and D. Humphrey, E q; third table, T. Roberts, Esq., Hendre; fourth table, T. Lloyd Kyffin, Esq.; fiith table, O. Griffith, Esq., Cefn Coch; sixth table, Rev. St. George Arm- strong Williams. About 240 gentlemen sat down at the tables. Amongst the guests we noticed O. Griffith, Esq., Cefn Coch, T. Roberts, Esq., Hendre, Captain E. W. Mathew, Wern, Captain Picton Jones, Pwllheli, Dr. Williams, D. Homfvay, Esq., Brecon-place, Port Madoc, Dr. Williams, Talarvor, Rev. H. Richards, Rural Dean of Llanystutr.dwy.Rev.Mr. Jones, Llaufihangel-y-traethau, Rev. St. George Armstrong Williams, Rev. E Parry, Rector of Cricciett, T. Lloyd Kyffin, Esq., Thomas Casson, Esq., J. E. Parry, Esq., Glyn Hall, T. Roberts, Esq solicitor, Pwllheli, J. Humphreys Jones, Esq.. solicitor, Port Madoc, B. T. Ellis, Esq., solicitor, Pwll- heli, T. Jones, solicitor. Port Modoc, Will Hayward, Esq., Carnarvon, Capt. Pearson, Brynseiont, Carnarvon, LI. Picton Jonts, Esq., J. Welbourne, Esq., Llanrug, J. Lane, Esq., Llaubsris, Messrs. J. Moreton, Sportsman Hotel, Carnarvon, J. Davies, Commercial Hotel, Port Madoc. W. Owen, timber merchant, ditto, E. W. Morris, ditto, — Lewis, Vaults, ditto, Captain John Ed- wards, ditto, Inspector C. Davies, ditto, R. 1. Jones, druggist, Tre' Madoc, — Evans, builder, Pwllheli, R, Jones, Bron Ynys, Griffith Jones, Llanllyfni, J. W. .Jones, Editor of the American Drych, W. Williams, draper, Penygroes, John Parry, tanner, Tre' Madoc, B. Lloyd, Harlech, D. Evans, schoolmaster, Llanystum- dwy, &c. Grace having been said by the Rev. E. Parry, the rector of Cdccieth, justice was done to the delicacies provided. The Carnarvonshire Militia Band during the whole time played in an ante-room of the Pavilion, and on several occasions received & hearty encore. After the withdrawal of the cloth the gallant Chair- man said he hoped that not one of the Volunteers assembled around this hospitable festive board would leave the Pavilion before all the usual loyal and patriotic toasts were disposed of, and especially the toast of the day. After the business of the evening had been finished the bugle should sound and they would be all marched, headed by their respective bands, to the Ancient Castle. The Chairman then proposed in succession "The Queen, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and the rest of the Royal Family," which having been duly honoured by the company, the band struck up the National An- them, God Bless the Prince of Wales," eliciting thereby ringing cheers. The Chairman said that it was a source of pleasure to him to propose the next toast, "The Bishop and Clergy of the Diocese." He was glad to see around that festive board so many of the clergy, he felt sure that if they gave their presence oftener at festive gatherings much good might be done by them in checking all immoral tendencies, which were too often a source of grief to right thinking men. The clergy knew that they were looked upon as a pait and parcel of society, and that, they were always welcomed in the family circles. He should couple with the toast the names of a gentleman highly respected by all present, "The Rev. H. Richards, the Rural Dean." The toast was received with musical honours, the band playing "The Merry Christ Church Bells." The Rev. H. Richards responded, ard thanked the company generally, and the chairman especially, lor their kind sentiments and good wishes on his behalf. The Chairman next proposed the health of the Lord Lieutenant of the County, Sir Richard Bulkeley," and was received with musical honours, the band striking up March of the Men of Harlech" (great cheering). In introducing the next toast, the Chairman said that this festive meeting had nothing to do with politics, and that as we are on the eve of a general election, he hoped that all present would fill their glasses and drink to the very good health of "The Members for the County and Boroughs, the Hon. Colonel Pennant, and Mr. Wynne Finch" (applause). The Army, Navy, and the Militia" were then pro- posed, and the band having played "The British Gren- adiers," the Rev. H. Richards begged to add to the toast "The Volunteers." (Drunk amid the most voci- ferous cheering). "The High Sheriff of the County, Dr. Millar," was received with musical honours. The Chairman said that he had now come to the grand toast of the day. He could have wished that the duty of presiding had fallen into abler hands, but, he was sure that it could not have fallen to the lot of a warmer heart than his, for he felt the greatest respect for the gentleman whose nuptials they had that day assembled to celebrate, namely, Captain H. G. Owen, of Ymwlch, and he hoped that he would follow the ex- ample of his late respected parents, who vere beloved by all who knew them. But, continued the Chairman, before I ask you to fill your glasses to drink Pro- sperity, long life, and happiness to Captain Owen and his bride," I will read you a letter from a gentleman who enclosed a small token of regard to the No. 4 Com- pany of Volunteeis, and who wishes me to drink Capt. Owen's health from the silver cup which he has pre- sented to the above named company. Castell Deudraeth, 19th June, 1865. Dear Captain Mathew,—Will you kindly accept for your Volunteer Corps the trifling present sent herewith to be shot for or otherwise appropriated as you may wish, but I should like, if you have no objection, that the first use made of it, will be that you and your vo- lunteers shall drink out of it the health of Mr. Owen, of Ymwlch, at the dinner at Criccieth, on Thursday next, over which I understand you preside. I regret very much that engagements at a distance from home, will prevent me being present on that joyous occasion, and shall be much obliged if you will be good enough to explain my absence. Believe me, yours very faithfully, DAVID WILLIAMS. Captain Mathew. Now, gentlemen, I shall fill this goblet, and hope that you all will join me in drinking Mr. Owen and his bride's very good health with Long life, prosperity, and happines* to the newly married couple." (diunk with nine times nine). The band then played Haste to the Wedding." Some englynion were then recited on the occasion by Mr. Robert Isaac Jones, Tre' Madoc. The Vice-chairman, Captain Picton Jones, proposed the health of the chairman, Captain E. Windus Mathew," and hoped that Captain Mathew would give a chance to No.5 to meet No. 4 in a shooting match for the goblet at Criccieth (drank with three times three and musical honours). The Chairman responded in appropriate terms, and said that he was proud to have his health proposed by his companion in arms, Captain Picton Jones, and that he would do all in his power to carry out his wishes respecting the meeting at Criccieth of No. 4 and No. 5. Although he was not a Welshman, be had lived amongst them for the last thirty-two years, and if he had no Welsh blood, yet he had Welsh ideas and feelings. The Chairman next proposed The health of the Ladies who had graced the festive board with their pre- ence," (the toast was drunk with musical honours), to. Dr. Williams, of Talarfor, in felicitous terms acknow- ledged the toast on behalf of the ladies. The health of the Working Committee," was pro- posed by the chairman, who said that they had been in- defatigable in their exertions in bringing the nuptial festivities to a happy close. Mr. Anwyl Owen responded in appropriate terms. Lieutenant John Humphreys Jones begged to propose the health of the Vice-chairman, Capt. Picton Jones, is very eulogistic terms. The Vice-chairman acknowledged the toost in a suit- able speech. After the dinner was over No. 4 and No. 5 were marched through the town, headed by their respective bands to the ancient Castle, where they played several appropriate tunes. The rural sports commenced about seven, consisting of foot-races, jumping in sacks, &c.,&.e. Several rock cannons were fired during the day, large bonfires, and fireworks were let off in the evening, and several of the houses were illuminated. Every house for miles round displayed its streamer or Vu oner m evidence of the respect they felt for the families of Ymwlch. The working committee consisted of the following gentlemen,—Messrs. Anwyl Owen, chairman; Captain Massey Jones, vice-chairman Mr. David Williams, with Mr. William Watkiu, as hon. secretaries. We understand that all the spare provisions, &c., after the festivities, were divided amongst the poor of the neighbourhood on Friday (yesterday). -+-
BANGOR BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The fortnightly meeting of the Bangor and Beaumaris Board of Guardians was held on Wednesday morning, at the Board Room. Mr. Bicknell, chairman, presided, the other gentlemen present being Messrs W. T. Rogers, vice-chairman. William Bulkeley Hughes, Rowland Parry, Hugh Roberts, O. Jones, O. Owen, R. Williams, R. Roberts, Roger Evans, Richard Evans, Thomas Morris, C. N. Bicknell, and John Roberts. Finance.—The cost of parochial out-relief for the past fortnight was 2021. 18s. lid, irremovable poor 2131. 4s. 2d.; non settled poor 41/. 12s. Od. Cheques granted to the relieving officers- amounted to 4<KM., comprising William Griffiths, 164/ L. Edwards, 134l.; D. Jones, 73/ and T. Hughes. 9SI. The New Gall.—The chairman read the estimate drawn out by Mr. Thomas, their clerk, of the new call required to be made upon the several parishes, the total cf which, including G2t'. Is. <).^d., for county and police 2 rates, amounted to 43861. Is. tj.jd., the previous call being 42471. lis. 2id. 2 Inspector for Llandegfan.—Mr. William Jones, As- sistant Overseer, was appointed inspector of nuisances for the parish of Llandegfa-n. The Orphan Children of Sergeant Roberts.—The three brothers of the late Sergeant Roberts, the disposal of whose children has given rise to much correspondence and discussion, waited upon the board fcr the purpose of offering t > take the entire charge of the two children left by their brother. They said that having seen the statements made in the public newspapers they had de- termined to bring up the orphans as their own children, free of all charge to the Union or others. One of the brothers.who resides in the parish of Llanfairynghornwy, said he would take one and the second married brother, who lives near Llangefni would take the other. The latter has no children of his own and the former but one at home, the others being all grown up. They entered into some explanations as to the reasons why they had nat taken to the children at first, which appeared to be quite satisfactory to the Guardians, and it was unani- mously resolved after making many necessary inquiries that the children should be given up to them, Mr. Bulkeley Hughes telling the uncles to look well after them. The children we afterwards saw with their uncles out of the house and very pleased they seemed, though the kindness shown to them by the matron of the house during their sojourn there was well evidenced by the warm manner m which they parted with her. In proposing that the children be handed over to the brothers of the late sergeant, Mi. Bulkeley Hughes thanked them for coming forward in the handsome way they had done, and for their promise to rear the chil- dren as if they were their own. He also tendered his thanks to the chairman for the kind and humane man- ner in which he had acted towards the children, and the way in which he had brought the subject before them. He had himself been prevented by urgent cir- cumstances from attending at the last meeting of the board, but the observations he now made, he would have made then had he been then present. He bad read with surprise and regret the letters which had appeared in the papers, and which were brought before them, when he was not there, and he could not find words too strong to mark his opinion of them, coming as they did from gentlemen who might have attended there and inquired themselves into the matter, instead of writing such letters. It was far from his intention to make use of harsh language, but he must say he was glad that he was not the writer of arty of them. Mt-. Rowland Parry seconded the proposition, which was passed unanimously. The .Chairman could not suffer the observations of Mr. Bulkeley Hughes, as to his conduct in bringing the matter before the board, to pass without acknowledg- ment, though he thought that gentleman had really a iid more than he deserved, (no, no). He had done no more than what he considered to be his duty, and it was the greatest satisfaction to him to find that what he had doue had met with their approbation. The remaining business was of no general interest. The fallowing letter f, om. the Secretary of the Pro- testant Alliance has been received by a rev. gentleman at Bangor. Dear Sir,—I have read the whole of the report of the c tse you sent me. Mr. Peers Williams is quite wrong in point of law, as it has been decided that a mother cannot appoint a guardian to her children. See the in- closed paper paragraph 1048. It is important that the law should be known. The increase of Romish influence is most alarming and will not be checked till the pulpits give proper warning and drive away false doctrine. We use every means but unless supported by clergy and ministers the laity will mostly be indifferent. Your faithfully, CHARLES BIRD, Secretary. The following is the paper alluded to in the Secre- tary's letter:— 1048.-A prisoner of the na.me of Mary Sarsfield, a Romanist, gave, it was alleged, her three illegitimate children in the Marylebone Workhouse to the charge of the Hon. Charles Langdale. Mr. Taverner opposed Mr. Langdale's application to have custody of the children, and Mr. Shaw, in seconding, said-" He had his sus- picions as to the genuineness of the document purport- ing to come from the mother. The document had been drawn up by a priest, and the names attached to it were evidently in the same hand-writing. If the board were to accede to the request they would for ever lose all control over the children. In support of his legal objec- tion he would quote from page 66 of 'Chambers on Infants :'—' An appointment of a testamentary guardian by the mother is absolutely void. So by the mother of an illegitimate child; and the Court of King's Bench will not, on habeas corpus, order a bastard to be delivered up to a person so nominated by a person to whom it had been committed by the mother before bar death. Consequently the document purporting to emanate from the mother was not a legal instrument, and there- fore the board had no power to act. The Chairman put the motion to the board, and it was unanimously against Mr. Langdale.
Death through Falling over the Little Ormeshead. On Saturday evening the town of Llandudno was thrown into considerable excitement through a report that a lady had been killed by falling over the rocks at the Little Ormeshead, and on proceeding to make in- quiries, we regret to say, that the sad report was-only too true, the horror of the occurrence being considerably enhanced by a whispered rumour that the unfortunate lady had, under the impulse of a sudden aberration of intellect, been the perhaps unconscious cause of her own death. It would appear that the deceased lady, who was un- married, and forty-seven years of age, Mary Anne West West, was a resident of Reigate, in Surrey, where her brother is a large hop factor, and that about a month ago she came to Llandudno with her sisters and her brother and his wife for a stay for the benefit of her health, which for some years past has been but indif- ferent. We are informed that ever since the death of a very near relative the deceased lady has been suffering from low spirits flnd melancholy, so much so that her family made it a point for one of them always to ac- company her in her walks and drives. On Saturday morning, however, she went out unperceived by her friends, and notwithstanding every enquiry made by anxious and alarmed minds, nothing was heard of her till the evening, when a little boy found her lying in a. dangerous position on one of the most precipitous parts of the Little Ormeshead. The sad particulars of her fall from the spot where first seen over a precipitous cliff more than a hundred yards in height will be found in the evidence given below. Mr. John Williams, Bodafon, who was driving homewards, was one of the first gentlemen from the town who heard of the fearful occurrence, and sending a messenger for a boat proceeded to look for Mrs. West, the deceased lady's sister-in-law, who was searching for the deceased very near the spot where she unfortunately lost her life, and gently break- ing the intelligence to her conducted her homewards, the body which was found afterwards floating under the rocks being taken to the police station. At the time the intelligence of the occurrence became generally known the Parade was thronged by lady and gentlemen visitors, listening to the strains of Wallace's band and inhaling the health-giving sea breezes, but in I a few minutes a silence almost death-like prevailed, the members of the band at once putting up their instru- ments and the visitors retiring to their apartments sad- dened and overwhelmed by the calamity. At the inquest, held on Monday at the Estate Office, Church Walks, before Mr. Roberts, deputy coro- ner, the following gentlemen were sworn as a jury to enquire into the circumstances of this lamentable event: -Messrs. George Felton, James D. Dean, Benjamin Woodcock, Daniel Phillips, B. R. Daines, Samuel Lilley, Samuel Brentnall, James Williams, Henry Bur- well, Henry Dukes, George Lowe, and T. A. Jones, Bodliyfryd. After viewing the body, several witnesses were called, and after their depositions had been taken, the room was cleared, and the jury proceeded to consider their verdict, as to which, however, there appeared to be some considerable difference of opinion, as for the three-quarters of an hour they were left to themselves, the outsiders could hear quite a warm debate going on. Ultimately they returned a verdict of Accidental death," or as the coroner took it, they found that the deceased Mary Anne West, did on Saturday, the 17th of June, accidentally fall over a cliff on the Little Ormeshead into the sea, and was then and there accidentally killed." The inquiry, which lasted near four hours, then ter- minated.
COUNTY COURTS. BEFORE R. VAUGHAN WILLIAMS, ESQ., JUDGE. CARNARVON. One hundred and eighty plaints were issued for this court, held on Wednesday, and nearly the whole of them were set down for trial. They occupied the court about six hours in merely adjusting payment, few only being disputed, and none being of interest excepting to the several parties.
CARNARYON.-The Strike amongst the Tairors.-On Monday evening last the journeymen tailors of this town held a meeting, in the open air, in a field under the Carnarvon Railway Station. Mr. Edward Hughes was elected chairman, and Mr. Evan Richardson vice. Three members of the fraternity were deputed to wait on the masters with the revised tariff, and we are happy to say that all the masters complied with the advance, and accepted the men's terms. Last week a paragraph appeared in our paper upon the above subject, but as there was an inadvertency the following letter was read by one of the workmen to contradict the same :— Carnarvon-Strike in the Tailoring Trade. Sir,— Having seen in your paper of last Saturday a false statement respecting the average wages of the tailors of Carnarvon, we wish to give a true and proper account of the state of things as they really are, and not to lead the public astray with regard to the wages of tailors in Carnarvon. In the first place they say the average wages are from 25s. to 30s. per week. It is true that those wages have been made in some instances, but only by a few, and then only when men work 15 or 16 hours a day, and that in extraordinary cases when men had to work like slaves to suit the emergency of the case, and that under the most favourable circum- stances with regard to the class of work that pays best. In the next place, they say we want an advance of os. 6d. a suit, to give a flat contradiction to that by staging the facts of the case without classifying the different kind of suits we candidly state and defy contradiction that 2s. 4d. is the average rise that we wanted. In the third place they say they are willing to meet us half- way. We deny this, they did not attempt to meet us one quarter of the way. This is the reason the men refused to accept the terms stated in your paper. We wish to state these facts that the public may see us in the pro- per light and not fce led astray by false statments. Hoping you will excuse us for trespassing so muc on your paper, We remain, dear sir, Your obedient servants, THE JOURNEYMEN TAILORS. The wages at Carnarvon are rated at 3d. per hour or 3s. a day, that amounts, of course, to 18s. a week at twelve hours a day. PORT MADOc.The Marriage of Corporal William Williams Lloyd, 4th Company C.R.V., to Miss Mary Jones. -This happy event recorded elesewhere was the cause of much rejoicing at our spirited Port on Wednes- day last. Early in the morning flags were seen stream- ing in the air from every vessel in the Port, and all the prominent parts adjoining. A tasteful arch of ever- greens decorated the entrance to the chapel bearing appropriate mottoes. The firing of ennnons and guns was heard from every direction, and altogether the Port appeared to be all alive. Hundreds of spectators were anxiously waiting to get a glance at the happy pair on their way to the chapel, and upon their re-ap- pearance after the ceremony had been completed. As the carriage which conveyed the happy couple was starting for Llanberis en route for London, a royal salute was fired. In the evening a hm:e bonfire was seen illuminating the air from the t, p of Yays y towyn
ANGLESEY. COUNTY COURTS. BEFORE R. VAUGHAN WILLIAMS, ESQ., JUDGE. LLANGEFNI. This Court was held on Tuesday last. One hundred and thirty plaints were issued, a moiety of which was down for trial. They consisted chiefly of professional and tradesmen's bills, a»d few only were disputed. The only case of interest was Gibson v. Jones and another.-It was brought against the Inspector of Police and Police Constable at Llan- gefni for an assault on the plaintiff, ou Monday, the 22nd of May last, without just cause. Mr. Foulkes appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. E. G. Powell for the defendant. After describing the nature of the charge, Mr. Foulkes called the plaintiff, John Gibson-He stated that he and his brother with three or four other young men were at the King's Head Public-house on the evening of the 22nd of May. About twelve o'clock Jones the policeman came in and asked who was going to the Cornist. They replied that none of them would go. He then desired us to leave. Plain- tiff asked the landlady if it was time to go, and she re- plied they had better go and not kick up a row. They all left. Plaintiff was last. A& he was going out at the door the policeman stood there, and as he passed him he was struck in the bact-, when he fell with his head on to a grating. Plaintiff got up to return the blow, but was prevented by his companions they then crossed the street towards the Bull's Head Hotel, quarrelling as they went along. Plaintiff threatening to strike the policeman, and taunting him with being at the Cornist (said to be a house of ill fame) on the previous Saturday night. Inspector Williams came down, whereupon Jones the policeman seized me by the neck and we both fell. Plaintiff was uppermost while struggling on the ground with the policeman and the inspector struck him twice on the head with his staff. The landlady of the hotel then took him into the house .Did not see the assault on his brother. Cross-examined—The Cornist is a common lodging- house and is registered. Had seen the police there. Had two or three glasses of ale. Was not quite sober. The policeman did not ask them to go home; but blew his whistle. I told him I could do that as well as he, and did so. Afterwards heard the policeman was con- fined to his house. William Gibson brother of plaintiff corroborated the plaintiff's evidence and stated that they were not. doing anything wrong. During the quarrel the policeman's I wife came up and wanted the policeman to go home. He replied that he knew what he was about when she ran for the inspector. When the inspector came, he laid hold of witness desiring him to stand off, and then struck him down with his staff. He was stuned and did not know what took place afterwards. While his companions were preventing the plaintiff striking the policeman, ha was swearing and wishing to get at him. William Barnett. William Roberts, Margaret Wil- liams, and Jane Griffith were also examined to the same effect. Mr. Powell in reply said that it would be far from him to defend a policeman in the undue use of his staff, and he was sure also by what he had heard from the bench that an improper use of such a weapon would net be tolerated but he felt confident that he could show by the evidence he should adduce, as well as by refer- ence to the antecedents of the officers, that the course taken by them was only such as was necessary to put a stop to an indiscretion on the part of the plaintiff and companions. He then analysed the evidence, showing that the plaintiff had tantalised the officer and drove him to take him up, and in doing which the assault complained of was committed. With regard to the charge against the inspector it was evident that wha he had done was merely necessary to release the officer from the plaintiff. Edward Jones, police constable, stated that the Cor- nist was a registered lodging, and it was a part of his duty to visit those houses every night; but he never staid in them longer than it was necessary for inspec- tion. At the time it was stated by plaintiff that he was at the Cornist on the night of the 20th of May. th& police bool ■ would prove the contrary. When tae, plaintiff left the King's Arms on the night of the 22ucL of May, witness stood at the door, and plaintiff in pass- ing pushed up ag unst him, and then squared at turn. He was then hustled by his companions, when be blew his whistle and in a short time the inspector came. Witness was then struggling with plaintiff on the ground. The inspector cleared the others away and got witness up. Inspector Williams said-On the night of the 20th of May the officer reported himself at the office at one o'clock. On passing the King's Head public house on the night of the 22nd of May, in company with the policeman, heard a. good deal of noise inside, but did not interfere. In a short time afterwards I was called to the assistance of Jones. I found Jones and Gibson struggling on the ground. I cleared several persons away and then separated the plaintiff and defendant. If I struck William Gibson it was unintentionally, while clearing him and others away from the fallen man. I did not use my staff against John Gibson. Mrs. Joues, the policeman's wife (examined by Mr. Foulkes)—I went for the inspector at ten minutes past twelve. My husband was then on the ground. I saw ths young men come out of the public-house. My husband stood on the steps when John Gibson came out. He pushed against my busbaud, and the others then hustled him, and he and John Gibson fell. Mr. Foulkes addressed the judge ecutrasting the evidence on either side and expressing confidence that the weight of the facts produced by him would prove the assault complained of, and that therefore his honour's verdict would be for the plaintiff. His Hono-tr said that every caution ought to be used by the police in the use of the staff, and he was sure he would not be suspected of favouring them when im- proper use was made of it. On the present occasion, however, it was evident that the disturbance was created by the plaintiff, and that the use made of the staff by the police was only such as was necessary to quiet the disturbance and was, therefore, justifiable. Verdict for defendant. Two other actions, arising out of the same affair, were similarly decided. Thomas Davies, a bankrupt, passed his last examina- tion unopposed. He was supported by Mr. J. Williams, of Beaumaris. Thomas Williams, a bankrupt, also came up for his discharge. He was not opposed. Mr. W. Jones, Menai Bridge, supported him. Thomas Owen, a bankrupt, supported by Mr. J. T. Williams, passed unopposed. William Parry, supported by Mr. J. T. Williams, came up, but his exannuation was adjourned upon .the application of Mr. J. Williams, to give him an oppor- tunity to prove that he had not improperly purchased a thrashing machine without probable means of paying for it. LLA', ERCITY-,L FDD. -The Railway.- There are evi- dent signs that the works about this town are to be carried on vigorously. Several waggons and cart loads of materials passed through last week to Mynyddwyn fields, and a gang of navvies are now busily employed at a cutting there. Temporary rails have besn laid, which will greatly facilitate the work. Another gang are working at Pontycrochan cutting, on the Plas Coed- ana farm, which is not very frr off. We have beeu told that two more gangs are to be set working at Cerrig- drudiouj and Bryngwaliau next week. Your correspon- dent at Llangefni is misinformed as to the work already finished. Only two bridges have been completed from this town to Llaugwylolg, whilst fifteen more are to be arched, besides several culverts, only two of which have beeu com.nenced. If more hands are employed we may expect the rail to be ready for traffic in about three or four months. Communicated. HOLYHEAD.—Sudden Death of a Seaman.-On Fri- day, the 16th icst., the Douro, a screw-boat, tradiLg between Liverpool and Lisbon, put into this psr, to land one of her firemen, who bad been suddenly taken so ill that he was considered in a precarious state. Dr. Price, who was immediately called to attend upon him. at once pronounced him to be in a dying state, and he died in a few hours. When he was landed he was un- conscious, and continued so until his death, so that he could neither give his name or any account of himself, and when he was buried on Monday he was still quite uoknown. HOLYHEAD.—A Seaman Dangerously Hurt.—About three weeks ago the John Wesley, Captain Griffith, from Aberystwyth, put into this port for the purpose of landing one of her crew, called Rice Williams, a young man who had been violently struck on the head by a piece of timber, causing blood to run "profusely from the mouth and cars. Dr. Price has very carefully attended upon him ever since but he seems still to lie in a pre- carious state. HOLYHEAD. -Fatal Accident.-On Tuesday last a man named William Williams was accidentally killed while at his occupation on the works of Messrs. Rigby, Holy- head. It seems that he, in connection with others, was heaving a heavy balk on the beach with one of the large cranes belcnging to the works, but when in the act of doing so the chain broke and the balk fell on deceased and killed him instantaneously. He had formerly been engaged as a second-mate on board the Royal William, but was at the time of the accident engaged as a labourer 011 the above works. He has left a widow and child to lament his loss. HOLYHEAD. —Enormous Traffic.-There are now ten large steamboats employed in the enormous traffic between this port and Ireland, leaving hardly any time for the vessels to be trimmed and the crews to rest themselves. The number of passenger-) and the quantity of goods aud cattle are almost incredible. In one day, namely the 17th inst., three cf the railway company's boats conveyed from Dublin to Holyhead no fewer than 2200 harvest men, all Irish, on their way ts England. None of them had allY luggage. The servants of ths railway company at this town have heavy work too in loading and unloading the packets, and sending out and receiving in from tweuty-six to thirty large trains every twenty-four hours, that they well deserve the sympathy and kindest consideration of the company whom they so faithfully serve.
CARDIGANSHIRE. Manslaughter at Aberystwyth. On Tuesday last, an inquest was held at the Town Hall, befoie J. M. Davies, Esq., coroner, and a jury, on the body of a person whose name is unknown, and who was killed in a fight on Saturday night last, in a lodging- house. The jury after a long deliberation returned a verdict of Manslaughter. On Wednesday, Charles King, Edward Phillips, and Ge rga Price, were brought up at the Town Hall, be- fore John Davies, Esq., mayor, and John Roberts, Esq., charged with having committed the above crime. The hall was crowded on the occasion, and the first witness called was Bridget Price, who deposed-I am a. widow residing in Moor-street. Keep a common lodging-house. I had six men lodging in my house on Saturday night last, namely, the prisoners, one Jeremiah Daly, and the one who is now dead. I am the occupier of the whole house which consists of two rooms, one on the ground floor, and the other upstairs. The six lodgers and myself slept in the same room upstairs. My portion of the room is partitioned off by boards and a curtain. The prisoners, Edward Phillips and George Price, slept together. Jeremiah Daly, and also the deceased slept alone. George Price went to bed in good time, and the I others went soon after twelve o'clock. The two other prisoners went to bed in good time. The deceased first came to my house between seven and eight o'clock. He we it out again and returned about twelve o'clock drunk. 1 was the last going to bed. The two prisoners, Phillips and Price did not appear to be worse for drink. Early in the morning I was awakened by a row in the bed- room. I then went from my bedroom to where the prisoners were. I first saw the prisoner Price in the middle of the room in his shirt. I asked what was the matter. He replied, that the deceased had attacked him, and thrown things at him, and I saw pieces of broken ware about the room. When I went to the room prisoner Phillips came out of his bed. The de- l e i-sed heard the two prisoners, Price and Phillips com- plaining of him. The next thing I saw was the pri- soner Phillips going to deceased and beating him with a stick, which I belie?e is the stick now produced. The prisoner Price had gone previously towards the deceased's bed. We all then-pressed. One of the prisoners said to the deceased, that he should not leave the h use until he paid the damages. After that the deceased opened the window and shouted "Murder." Previous to that deceased told me that they had hurt his arm. The prisoners, Phillips, Price, and Pyke all went down stairs. The prisoner Phillips, myself, and the deceased were up stairs. Deceased .vent down of. his own accord. The prisoner King .who was standing by me gave de- ceased a push down stairs, and be fell to the botlom. 1 then went down stairs and found the deceased lying on the ground at the foot of the stairs on his face. I think be went down head foremost. When deceased was removed he appeared quite senseless. Trevor Bennett deposed—I remember last Saturday night. There were circumstances which made it neces- sary for me to be up ^11 night. I live opposite last witness. About three o clock in the morning I went outside my house. Heard a noise in the last witness's house as of persuns who were quarrelling. About hilf- past three a police constable cjae by, and the noLo attracted his atteution. He remained by the h'.iise, and before he left prisoner Price came out and spoke to the constable and than went away. As I was going to bed my wife called out that there was a uy of "murder." I then went to the room where my wire was. I could see the window thrown up and a par;v on the stairs. Shortly afterwards I observed a r.Uiu tumble down stairs. He fell cn his head. Jeremiah .U.iy deposed—Am a mason. Have lodged with the first witness for tivj weeks. On Saturday morning I heard a noise iu the ',eJroQ¡a which awoko me. The first thing I saw wis the prisoner King wa..ting the deceased to fight. Phillips went to de- caa ed's bed. I then heard blows as if given with a stick. I c< uld not see what took place, as there was a Screen between us. I heard deceased calling out ciLt his a. m had been nearly broken. He continued to be u. him at intervals, for about ten minutes. I heard the deceased fall down stairs to the bottom. Prisoner Price. had gone out before I came down. Prisoner King and Bridget Price were upstairs wheu the deceased ML Jacob Roberts, Esq., deposed--Am a srft-geon residing in this town. Remember last Sunday m rlliw, I "S called to see the deceased. I believe he died from the effects of the fall. Other witnesses were called, who corroborated the evidence of the first witnesses. The prisoners were funy com tin; ted for trial wi manslaughter at the next assizes. Baptist Association at Aberystwyth.
