CARMARTHEN. A NOYEL SPECIES op BALLAST.—On Sundav week an steamer landed about 400 poverty-stricken men, women, and chil- dren from the sister isle on the coast, near Milford. We learn that the captain of the vessel, before sailing from Waterford, being sh,, t of ballast, sent the crier round the city and offered to convey any parties free of charge to England, who might be willing to emigrate- 9 to the land of the Sassenagh. The result of this curious offer wa» a cargo of 400 human beings, who were thus metamorphosed into ballast. Throughout the week this town has been daily thronged with scores of these unhappy emigrants progressing towards Eng- land.— The Welshman. A UKSPECTABLE farmer, named Thomas Williams, residing at Elaengwin, in the parish of Llangendeim, fell over the quay while in a state of intoxication near the Waterloo last Saturday night, and was drowned. His body was found on Monday last near Rhy- dygors. He had £ 30 in his pocket.
