TENBY. PEMBROKESHIRE IRON AND COAL COMPANY.—Saunders- foot and its environs have these last t'ew days presented a scene of the most animated description, in consequence of the above company having, on the 20th ult., started an engine 45 horse-power—an event which created amongst the working classes a degree of excitement unrivalled in the county. During the greatest part of that day flags were flying, cannons firing, and music playing; and at two o'clock the manager, Mr. Hosgood, who is remarkable for his activity, went to work with his coat off, amidst deafening shouts of huzzas from the assembled crowds. He took the whole management of the engine on himself, assisted only by his son, and by his great experience the whole machi- nery was put in motion, without the least mischance or ac- cident whatever, and in a manner which cannot fail to re- flect oil Mr. Hosgood the highest credit, as well as advan- tage to those whose trust he watches over. On Monday week blast was put to one of the furnaces, and on Tuesday evening the furnace was tapped, and about six tons of iron taken out; and it is more than probable that in a short period the above works will be one of first-rate class, not only beneficial to the company, but also a boon to the neigh- bourhood and to the county at large. Another furnace, now in course of erection, will be ready in a short time, and preparations are making for the erection of two additional furnaces.
