CARMARTHEN. MR. E. H. STACEY, of this towu, has gfained a prize of £ iu,at the Ai t-Union of London exhibition, last Tuesday. THE Carmarthen April Fair, usually known as John Brown's fair," took place on Monday and Tuesday, the IGth nd 17th. The exhibition of stock was large, but marked with the feature which has distinguished late fairs in the principality—lean condition. The scarcity of food will easily account for this. There was little business done, and that at prices exhibiting rather a downward tendency. In horses, too, there was scarcely any amount of business done. The pig fair on Tuesday was not so large as it generally is, the weather being unpropitious. There was a rather brisk de- mand. and many sales were closed at prices above those ob- tained at recent fairs.-Herald. MONUMENT TO BISHOP DA VIES.—This monument, about to be erected in Abergwilly church, by the Lord Bishop of this diocese, to the memory of Bishop Davies, who died in the 16th century, and whose remains were disentombed on the occasion of the rebuilding of that sacred edifice, has just been completed by Mr. Edward Davies, the sculptor of the statue to General Nott. It has been sent to the Iloyal Aca- demy exhibition, and will, most probably, be erected in Abergwilly church in the course of the ensuing autumn. An appropriate epitaph, written by" Tegid," has been in- scribed on it. THE PUBLIC HEALTH ACT.—The Board of Health have commissioned George Thomas Clark, Esq., to visit this town to inspect and report in conformity with the provisions of the Public Health Act. Mr. 'Cbrk will commence the inspection on the 14th of next month. LAMMAS-STREET CHAPEL CIRCULATING LIBRARY. — On Tuesday, the 17th instant, a lecture was delivered in con- nexion with the above institution by the Rev. D. Davies, Pautteg, on the rights of private judgment. The lecture was characterised by the rev. gentleman's usual love of order, clearness, and simplicity first making good his position that every man has a right to judge and act for himself in matters pertaining to religion; next dwelling on the means to be employed in maintain this right; and closing with a few appropriate reflections arising from the subject. The audience expressed itself highly gratified with the modera- tion displayed by the respected lecturer in his manner of treating a subject so provocative of party feeling and un- charitable thoughts. At the close of the meeting a vote of thanks was proposed to the IecHirer by W. G. Thomas, Esq., which was seconded by Dr. Davison.
