===-=.===-=====--=-=-=====-= ABElilUIiE. DEATH OF JOHN PUGH.—IMPORTANT TO LATTER- DAY SAINTS. On Saturday, the 19th inst., an inquest was held at the Black liioK Inn, Aberdare. before John Morgan, Esq., deputy-coroner, and a most respectable jury, to inquire into the death of John Pugh, who was a preacher with the Latter-day Saints, and whose friends had most obstinately refused medical assistance, after he met with a severe accident. George ltoper, sworn, said :—I am a collier at Werfa Colliery. Deceased John Pugh and myself worked together. We were in the pit on Tuesday, the 8th inst. I saw deceased at work before he was burnt, clearir,gaway some rubbish from the cropheading. The de- ceased was a married man, between twenty-eight and twenty-nine years of age. Mr. Mills, the agent, desired us to take up the tram- plates in heading No. 2, but at the same time solemnly cautioned us, as we valued our lives, not to enter there without a safety- lamp, as there was danger there from fire-damp. Each of us promised to obey his orders. While I was going for the safety- lamp, the deceased went to the heading with an open candle in his Land, and left it there, and returned. When I got up to him, an awful explosion took place from his candle. We were both severely burnt. I saw the deceased on the following Saturday. He Was sane when I went in, but got delirious before I left the house. He had no doctor attending him. He had refused to have one. There is a doctor belonging to the Werfa Colliery. The doctors do not come unless sent for. I saw the deceased once after- wards. Jim Pontypool was then attending him. I believe he cugh to have had a doctor to attend him. The doctor never re- fund to attend me, if I sent for him. Examined by the jury I did not know the deceased's motive by taking the candle to the heading after being charged to go there with a safety-lamp. I found an equal quantity of air in the level that day as on any other occasion, except in the heading which we were charged not to go to without a safety-lamp. I did not see a doctor with the deceased at any time when I went to see him. I know there is a regular doctor belonging to Werfa Colliery. Ellinor Pugh I am the widow of the deceased. He was 29 years of age. lie worked under ground about four years since we were married. We had no children. He was severely burnt oa last Tuesday week. It was I that put the oil on his wound lie Would not allow any one else. I was obliged to remain with him continually. James Jones (Ji.n Pontypool) dressed his burns daily with something brought from Mr. Price, druggist. I did not know what it was, for it was he that fetched it. John Ed- munds, jun., dressed his wounds also. John Edmunds, sen., pro- cured the stuff, and it was he that used to spread it on the rags. I gave money to John Edmunds, sen., to the amount of 4s. to buy U:e stuff; two shillings on Monday night, and two shillings on the night before my husband died. I asked John Edmunds, sen., if my husband was in danger. He told me there was no danger whatever, and that he would soon cure him. I asked my husband many times if I should send for a doctor. He refused to have a doctor upon any account. It was his own fault entirely not to have a (Ioctoi- to atLtftii] him. No doctor called at the house during his illness. John Edmunds did not object to have a doctor to attend him but said that he could cure him, unless there was something the matter with him that he did not understand. My husband was regularly dressed everyday. He died ut half-past four yesterday morning. Since John Edmunds took to his cure, we could not say that he was anything the better but rather weaker. He took his meals regular every day. Examined by the jury John Edmunds did not return the last two shillings I g:ive him. Doctor Evans was in the house the day my husband was burnt. My mother told me that she gave him a chair to sit down. I was in the house when Mr. Kvans offered his service. My husband sent back to say that he preferred having the ordinance of the Church of God administered upon him first, and if his faith would prove too weak to be cured, he then would Jnive no objection for Doctor Evans to come and attend him. My husband was severely burnt in the face, arms, and neck, and also on the side. The time he began to be delirious was on the Friday night after the accident. The time Dr. Evans sent in the messen- ger, my husband was quite sane-being the day he met with the accident, I saw Dr. Evans on the Wednesday following. He asked me if I was the wife of the man that was burnt. I said yes. I asked for some oil to anoint him with. He told me that I should not have it unless I would first of all kick all the Saints out of the house. I had no oil with Mr. Evans but I had with some other person, about three half pints, and my husband was anointed with a portion of it, but could not suffer any more of it. My husband objected to my going to the doctor for a plaster. Dr. Evans used no severity towards me more than to say, 11 You must first of all kick all the Saints out of the house." Mr. Sims is an elder in ottr Church. He administered the ordinance of the Church of God on my husband as soon as we came home after the accident. He brought with him a fla^k ot the blessed oil, which was a shil- ling's worth. He anointed my husband on the face, and then putting his hand on his head, prayed to the Lord Jetius Christ. If my husband's faith had been strong enough, he would have been cured instantly. I had three jugs of oil from the Werfa Colliery but he preferred having the yellow oil from Price, the druggist. The brethren brought in all eight flasks of the blessed oil to anoint my husband, Mr. Sims, the elder, blessed all the oil that c iine to the house. My husband had also some salts from Mr. Price's shop. J. R. Price, druggist, sworn John Edmunds, senior, came to my shop on Monday or Tuesday, for a compound for the deceased, a quarter of a pound of rosin, one pound of lard, a pennyworth of camphor, and a small quantity of beeswax. I believe that was all the ingredients he asked for. He paid me for them. I have not heard of this compound being used for burns before. I have not seen it at all used for a like purpose. John Edmunds told me that he applied it to many cases, and effected a cure. I gave them also some linseed oil and lime water mixed, and also a quantity of olive oil, amounting altogether to the value of two shillings and sixpence. Linseed oil and lime water are generally used for burns. John Edmunds, senior, swora I work under the Aberdare Iron Co. I look after the castings. I saw the deceased on Tuesday last for ;lie first time after he met with the accident. When I went into thn house he was resting on the arms of two of his friends. His wife and mother in-law asked me if I would undertake to cure him. I said I would not. The wounds did not work on Tuesday. I told them that I had no hope of his recovery, but I had no ob- jection to do anything for him as a neighbour. When 1 first saw the deceased r believe that he was delirious. I had of Mr. Price, the druggist, one pound of lard, six ounces of beeswax, half a pound of rosin, and a pennyworth of camphor. It was I that used to spread the ointment ou the rags and apply the same to the wounds, and they worked well. By the application of linseed oil and lime water the wounds ought to work in three or four days. The de- ceased would have a doctor to attend him on no account. His wounds worked very well after I took his case in my own hands. I did not see the deceased before the eighth day. If my own son was similar!) burnt, I would have certainly sent for a doctor. I cuitd my own son with the same compound as I supplied to the deceased when the doctors failed. I believe the deceased should LL;ve had medical attendance. James Jones (Jim Pontypool) was next called, who stated that he was a Saint, and according to their creed no one should send for a doctor, but rely on the ordinances of their Church for cures in all cases, Fnd had it not been for the weakness of John Pugh's faith he would have been cured immediately. Having made seve- ral other absurd and most contradictory statements, several of the jurors said they could not believe him on his oath. With this the deputy-coroner quite agreed, and he was dismissed without being sworn. William Sims was next called, who also stated that he was a Saint and an elder in the Church of Christ. On the day John Pugh met with the accident he was sent for. He went and anointed him with oil, and administered the ordinances of the Church of Christ. He was perfectly sure had John Pugh's faith bee-i good he would have cured him tnat instant. He tried him again several times, but the deceased's laith was too weak each time. He knew that I)'. Evans had offered his service to attend (he deceased, but that John Pugh wished to try the ordinances of the Cnurcli of Christ, aid if that failed then he would have a me- dical man. Though 1 failed to care him I did not advise the pro- priety or having a doctor. It is my duty us an elder to exhort our pet p e to trust to the ordinances of the Church for cures in ail caao.5, and not to medical men. Still we would not exclllde any one from having a doto.. He knew that the deceased was deli- rious for several days before he died, still he took no i.ep, to have a proper medical man to see him. 1 d I most solemnly declare that if all the flesh was burnt off my hand this moment that my blessing would cure it in an instant. I have cured myself maay times. I have cured my wife fr I v, and I have performed in- stantaneous cures on my children by my blessing oi)IN- atiti had John -Pugh's faith been good I would have cured him Lke putting one hand in the other. David Evans, Esq., surgeon, sworn: I called to see the de- ceased on last Tuesday week. I called u nnvited, in Consequence of bearing of his being-burnt at Werfa Colliery. Dr. Roberts and iii) self attended there, I went to examine the wouads of the de- eded. He in ide no ohjeciio.i to my examining him. I asked for a blanket t > cover his feet, for he wa.1 very cold. I otkcrverl that his heed and arms were severely injured, and also the upper part of. the chest. His mind \1\" perfectly collected. lie asked me the c.au, e of his shivering, and I explained to him. William -r- Sims, the elder of his Church, was present. I sent a collier in to ask if I should attend him, and the answer was no, and that he would rely on the ordinances of his Church for a cure. He did not tell me by the messenger I sent in that I should attend him if the ordinances of his Church failed. I have found in my profes- sional experience that the Latter-day Saints will not allow medi- cal attendance. I would not have gone from the house if I knew that he was one of the party called Latter-day Saints. He was severely burnt. I have not seen him since, neither was I asked by any of his party to come and see him. I believe that the de- ceased might have recovered if ordinary means were applied to his wounds. The application of linseed oil and lime water is the ordinary means adopted. I might have used olive oil, it is quite immaterial. I have seen burns beginning to work in about forty- eight hours, and in some cases I have seen them as long as five or six days before they would begin to work. The longer the wounds are before beginning to work, the greater the inflammation or fever is. If I had attended the deceased I would not have kept him in oil more than forty-eight hours. I consider that a compound of lard, beeswax, rosin, and camphor is useful in some cases, where there is not much fever, but it is not desirable in a bad case. When I attend to burns I frequently put other parties to dress the wounds according to my directions. There is no great danger in dressing; the danger lies in the fever, and the extent of the injury. I have used external as well as internal remedies. I think salt could not have been injurious. I consider that the de- ceased should have bad medical attendance. The deputy-coroner then summed up. After a few general observations on the case he requested the jury to consider their verdict. The jury returned the following verdict We find that the deceased John Pugh died from the effects of an accident caused by an explosion of fire-damp at Werfa Colliery May Sth, and the culpable neglect of his attendants, who were members of a certain society called the Latter-day Saints, in lefusing to permit a medi- cal gentleman to attend to his case. The jurors beg in the strong- est language to censure the conduct of these deluded people, and caution them not to repeat their foolish practices in future," The verdict was read in open court by the deputy-coroner, who advised the Saints, and said that the jury had been exceedingly lenient, and that the verdict was a very merciful one. He fully expected to have had to commit several of them for manslaughter, but as it was they had a most narrow escape this time, and he trusted that the serious caution of the jury would have due weight with them. Had they not put the fault upon the poor man now dead, nothing could have prevented them from being sent to an- other tribunal. The proceedings lasted for nine hours. GLAMORGANSHIRE ANNUAL ASSOCIATION OF INDEPENDENT MINISTERS.—The annual meetings connected with the associa- tion of Independent ministers in the county of Glamorgan, were held at Salem chapel, Aberdare, on Wednesday and Thursday last. There were about forty ministers present. In the morning of Wednesday, at eleven o'clock, a conference was held, when the Rev. P. Griffiths, of Alltwen, presided. There were two or three subjects touched upon in the course of the morning, of such a character, and treated in such a spirit, as betokened a healthy state of feeling among the independent ministers in this country, in reference to important public questions. One was the decided and unanimous expression of sympathy withitlie principles and objects of the Anti-State Church Association. Another question, endowments, was incidentally brought up in connexion with a chapel whose case was brought before the conference, in connexion with which a liberal endowment existed. Several ministers spoke strongly of the evil tendency of endowments, and the desirableness of removing them whenever practicable, in which sentiment nearly all present seemed to coincide. A proposition was also submitted on behalf of the principality, with a view of bringing it within the reah of all ministers. Considerable interes appeared to be felt in the papers, and a unanimous vote of ap- probation was passed in its favour. In the afternoon another conference was held at Ebenezer (Rev. W. Edwards) chapel, when several private matters were discussed. Sermons were preached on the occasion on Wednesday afternoon and evening, and during the whole of Thursday.
ABERYSTWYTH. WITCI-ICRAFT.-On Tuesday week, a man, calling himself Jen- kin Jones, was brought up in the custody of police constable Wil- liam Jones under a charge of obtaining money under false pre- tences. The prisoner was a tall man, of 63 years of age, with something in his appearance that was by no means repulsive. His language and pronunciation negatived the supposition of his being a broken down gentleman," but he might, perhaps, be a broken down "gentleman's gentleman"—a superannuated butler. What nis antecedents were does not so much signity, tor he appeared in the Town-hall to answer for his conduct as conjuror and quack doctor. Morgan Jones, a respectable labouring man, employed by the Goginan Mining Company at their warehouses at Aber- ystwytb, deposed that his wife was very unwell, and while she was sitting in a chair a few days since, the prisoner, who was quite a stranger, came in and asked how "the old lady" was and, hav- ing obtained leave, he felt her pulse and looked at her tongue, the result of which operations was to elicit from the prisoner the sa- pient exclamation that the old lady was very poorly. He then obtained a looking-glass, which he applied to his patient's mouth, requesting her to breathe on it. This done, he delivered his opin- ion of the complaint in Welsh—y mae gicaith dynion ami hi,- she is bewitched." Such being the disease, now for the re- medy. "Get me a pen, irk, and paper," said the charlatan, and pen, ink, and paper were brought him with promptitude. He wrote something on the paper and sealed it up, and desired the document to be pinned inside the old lady's chemise, and told her, Your friend will be here in forty-eight hours." He then called for the Bible, which he opened, and muttered something to himself which was wholly unintelligible to the by- standers, and then asked 7s. for the job in language sufficiently intelligible. He, however, only received 3s. 6d., just half the de- mand. About eight o'clock, on the evening of the same day, the wizard came again, and commenced the operations of the evening by telling the husband that he and his son, as well as the wife, were included in the spell, or in the mess, only that it had not yet had time to operate upon them. He then demanded the other 3s. 6d., which was not paid him with that alacrity which he consi- dered proper-the old lady demurring to cash up" the remainder until she had derived some benefit from the treatment. Upon this the quack waxed wrath, and became altogether savage, threat- ening the parties three or four times that unless the balance was forthwith paid they should repent of it. The 3s. 6d. was at length paid, which smoothed down the rising ire of the necromancer, and he became more communicative and affable. He then divn'ged the name of the person who had put the spell upon, or rheibo, the old lady—this was an elderly female resident in the town, but who the husband of the patient declared was unknown to him or his family. This was the substance of the evidence of the husband, Morgan Jot.es, and the prisoner, in his defence, in a very low tone of voice. was understood to say that the old lady herself told him that she was bewitchtd by the person whose name was given by him but this was denied by Morgan Jones. The police constable Jones had several other cases to bring forward, but the magistrates did not enter fully into any of them, as they deemed the case above re- ported quite sufficient, and Mr. W. H. Thomas, their clerk, having read the Act of Parliament bearing upon the offence, the mayor committed the prisoner to Cardigan gaol for three months, the full term mentioned by the statute. Some of the drugs supplied by the prisoner to several of his dupes were produced by several medical men present, but such villanous compounds were never before put together and palmed upon a gullible public—it being evidently a mixture of bilge-water and dirty treacle. I t was given in evidence that a young man applied to the prisoner to cure a wound in his neck, and the following recipe was given, which will, no doubt, be considered a curiosity in its way-to those that can understand it- 1 ounce of syrnt nature 1 ounce ot atabuozia Tae spon foull Evrry night & morning. — The Welshman. EMIGRATION FROM ABERYSTWYTH—EI.OPKMF.MT PREVENTED. — Ou 1 uesd'iy week, fifty-five persons from this town and neigh- bourhood went in the schooner Energy, Captain Jenkins, from tlli-J PO!-t: for Liverpool, there to embark from thence for the United States of America. Among this number there were a man and woman, the former a married man, called David Davies, alias David Aaron,-formerly a carrier between this place and Carmar- then. a well known character, who had left his wife aid children in Montg omeryshire, had shipped himself and intended going away with il young woman, lately a servant in a respectable' family in this town, who was also on board. When the vessel was. opposite" tin; Marine Terrace about five o'clock in the evening, it became known that these parties were on board, a police ti, cr boarded the vessel, and the captain ordered the man and woman from the vessel, which was done, and they were brought on shore with their packages. No sooner was the feliov landed than he took to his heels and ran like a good un" under the Castle rocks, by Ike shipbuilding place, and up the town, followed by hundreds of women, btjys, and children, until he found shelter in some house they afterwards attacked the woman, who ran in a different direc- tion, making towards the Marine Baths, het clothes were torn ta -4_ pieces, but she sustained no further injury. The police interfered and placed her at last in safety. This is the first time that we saw Lynch Law put in operation in this town.
CARDIGAN. Wr understand that a very handsome testimonial, in the shape of a silver cup, has been presented to Captain George Bowen, at St. Dogmells, by several gentlemen in this neighbourhood. W. D. Jones, Esq., of Laucych, kindly came forward and originated a subscription for the purpose of marking their high opinion as well as admiration of Capt.'Uowen's intrepid, brave, and humane con- duct in rescuing, at the peril of his own life, two of the crew of the brig Agnes Lee, of North Shields, when shipwrecked on the 11th of January last, off'Cardigan bar. It is hoped that this memorial. of the intrepidity and humanity of Capt. Bowen will act as an incentive to others residing on this iron-bound coast, to exert themselves in saving the lives of any shipwrecked mariners, should, unfortunately, another like disaster occur. We also understand that Capt. Bowen has been appointed to the command of the life- boat, towards which a considerable sum of money has been sub- scribed by the gentlemen connected with Cardigan. DEPLORABLE ACCIDENT.—An inquest was held before Wm. Lloyd, Esq., on the 18th instant, at Llanddewibrefi, on view of the body of John Davies, Pentrerichard, miner, at the Rhisgog lead mines, Llanddewi, who, whilst he was, on Wednesday, the 16th instant, working with a fellow miner at one of the mines, was killed in an instant by a heavy stone from the top, which fell on him. Verdict, "Accidental Death." He has left a wife and three children.
€rak null Cummm'r. MONEY MARKET. LONDON, WEDNESDAY.—There is a fuller attendance than is usual in the Stock Exchange on the Derby day, but the business done is mostly real, not speculative. Consols have risen to 914 R upon the better advices from Paris. The New per Cents, have been 904 J-. Bank Stock is 1931, and quiet. Ex- chequer Bills have been 44s. to 47s. premium. In Foreign Stocks there is very little doing. French Five per Cents, bring 83, with the exchange at 25 40. Spanish Three per Cents. have been quoted 324; Portuguese Four per Cents, are nominally 28.5 to 29; and Mexican Stock has done at 301 with, and 28| ex coupons. The next arrival will bring part of the proceeds of the tobacco duties. Railway Shares are still rather heavy, but the transactions are very limited. The French lines have all rallied. South Wales YAot quoted.
MINING MARKET. In the mining share market during the past week an average amount of business has been done. Shares in our leading and dividend-paying mines arc much inquired for, in many of which transactions have taken place, and, comparatively with former weeks, the market exhibits a healthy state.

REMARKS.—Our metal market remains in the same depressed and unsatisfactory state it has done for some time past, and the want of orders for iron is now being severely felt by the makers in Wales and Staffordshire. Welsh bars must be written 5s. lower and, although favourite brands are held for £ 5 at the port, with 3 per cent. discount, other makes can be had on easier terms. In Staffordshire, several of the makers have been underselling fully 10s. per ton on the fixed prices, and it is therefore deemed certain that a general reduction of 20s. per ton will take place immediately. The price of Scotch pig-iron has again given way,^and business to some extent has been done at 42s. 6d. per ton for mixed-Nos., free on board at Glasgow, cash, in 10 days. The market closes dull to- day, at 42s. 6d. mixed Nos., and 43s., all No. 1. The advices re- ceived from America during the early part of the week, per Eu- ropa, gave a very unfavourable report of the iron trade for all descriptions of English iron in the United States, and to this cir- cumstance we may attribute, to some extent, the fall in our market within the last few days.

LONDON CORN EXCHANGE. MONDAY.—The accounts received up this morning from our own agricultural districts state that the crops are progressing rapidly. Notwithstanding that the show of samples of both red and white was trifling for the time of year, the demand for all kinds of wheat of home produce was in a very inactive state. Selected parcels were, in some instances, disposed of at about stationary prices; but those of the middling and inferior sorts declined Is. per quarter, and a clearance was with difficulty effected. Scarcely any English barley was on show, and the supply of foreign was limited. We had a steady though by no means brisk inquiry for that grain. Very little malt was brought forward, yet the supply was quite equal to the demand. The best oats were mostly held for a trifling ad- vance. Beans, the supply of which was small, sold at Is. per quarter more money. In peas there was more doing, and the quotations had an upward tendency. Indian corn and meal were held at full prices. Flour was in moderate demand, at unaltered currencies. WIIL,"T- S. S.

On the whole, the demand was in a sluggish state for all descriptions, yet Monday's quotations were fairly supported. The imports of wheat from abroad have amounted to only 5,560 quarters. In prices we have no change to report. No English barley at market, but the supply of foreign was somewhat on the increase. All kinds met a dull inquiry, at late rates. In malt so little was doing that the quotations were al- most nominal. Oats, beans, peas, Indian corn, and flour as last advised.
SMITHFIELD. Monday.—The beef trade, owing to the unfavourable state of the weather for slaughtering, was in a very sluggish state, at barely Friday's decline in the quotations. The primest Scots were selling at from 3s. 6d. to 3s. 8d. per Ibs., the latter being an extreme figure. The numbers of sheep were considerably on the increase hence all breeds were very dull in sale, and prices ruled quite 4d. per 8 lbs. beneath those realised on this day se'unight. The primest old Downs sold at 3s. lOd. per 8 lbs. Lambs, the suppiy of which was good, sold heavily, and the quotations were 2d. per 8 lbs. lower.; Prices ruled, from- 4s..8d. to (is. per 8 lbs. The supply of sheep and lambs from the Isle of Wight comprised 44-1 head. In calves very iittle business was transacted, and late currencies were not sup- ported.
