CHURCH RATES. The following Petition on behalf of the Religious Society of Friends, for the abolition of those rates called Church-Hates, Was lately presented to the House of Commons. To the Commons of Great Britiari and Ireland in Parliament assembled, "The Petition of the undersigned, members of the Religious Society of Friends respectfully siioweth,— "That the Society of Friends has uniformly objected, on conscientious grounds, to the payment of the rates called Church-rates. Their objection has been apart from political motive or consideration: it has been founded on what they assuredly believe- to be the doctrine of our Lord and Savour -ifcsus Christ,— doctrine which, when rightly understood and conscientiously acted upon, forms the ground-work of the happiness of man, and the welfare of States. It is, in the conviction of your Petitioners, contrary to the law of righteousness and t-uth, that any portiun of the com- munity should lJecornpellecl to contribute to the support of a system of religious belief and prac-tice which they regard as at variance with the doctrine of the New Testament, and especi- ally that such claims, as is the case of your Petitioners, should be exacted with a serious and oppressive loss of property. "Without enumerating all the objections to the appropri- Z, ation of the rate in question, your Petitioners would especially mention the assumed consecration of buildings used for Divine worship, and of ground set apart for the interment of the dead the providing of special vestments for the minister the supplying of bread and wine for what is called a sacra- ment and the upholding of a fabric wherein certain doctrines are taught, and usuages are upheld, from which they reli- giously dissellt, "It is against these, and other similar appropiiations, your Petitioners entertain a strong conscientious objection and therefore, whilst cherishing a warm attachment to the consti- tution of the Government under which they live, and desiring peaceably to obey the laws of the land where they do not violate the law of God) they would earnestly entreat Parlia- ment to relieve them by the entire and immediate abolition of the rates called Church-rates. "Signed by us, members of a meeting appointed to repre- sent the Religious Society of Friends in Great Britain. (Signed by 49 friends.) London, the 19th of the 4th mo., 18oU. [Tho Edict of 157S, exempted French protestant: from all payments to the Catholic worship—andnow, in 1850, Dissenters may reasonably claim to be relieved from furccd payments to the Establishment.]
MEJRTIIYH. THE DISTIN FAMILY.—This celebrated musical family gave a concert at the Bush Assembly-rooms, on last, Thursday night. Besides the father and three sons, they were accompanied by Miss O'Connor and ilir. J. Willy, the pianist. The programme of their performance contained some choice music, and they played the pieces set down with great beauty and skill. Miss O'Connor, without possessing a powerful range of voice, sang some ballads very sweetly. The madrigal, "D"wn in the Flow'ry Vale," in which the Messrs. Distia and Miss O'Connor sang, was raptuously encored, and so was a Singing Lesson, sung by Air. T. H. Distin and Miss O'Connor. The performance of Cod Save the Queen, was very Hue and citective. Altogether it was a vel-yfine musical treat, arid it gwe us gleat pleasure that it was so well attended by most of the leading people of the town and neighbourhood. Diurii BY or three %veiit !o liz.,tlic in the Talf, below the iron bridge, iii this town, when one of them, a son of James Torey, master at the Castle Inn, slipped out of his depth, and before assistance could be hill, was drowned.

CHEAP Niiws-i'APEits.—We have been provided by-a friend with a sight of a veritable California newspaper, and assuredly, except the price, it is no bad specimen of typography. Its title is the Aita California, about half the size of the PRIN- CIPALITY, and appears to Oc well edited. It contains a long list of shipping announcements, and a couple of advertisements. But the price—ye penny papers sigh for it-ju,cents. per copy, equal to 2s. Id. English money. HELtGlOUS REVIVALS.—The Mormonites seem, if we may judge from the seal with which they follow out door preach- ing, to be exerting themselves to try to make hay whilst the sun shines. During the fine weather they are to be heard in several parts of the town expounding with much fervour the doctrine of Joseph Smith and his followers. In addition, we had on Sunday a couple of gentlemen in the matket place, wearing their beards long, and looking very Jewish, expoun- ding some peculiar doctrine, but to what particular Church they belong, we have not yet found out. BUILDING.— We are happy to see that agreat deal of the ground hear St. David's Church, belonging to W. Thomas, Esq. of the Court, is given out for building. Already there are several cottages in the course of erection, and when in ad- dition, there will be the Workhouse and the Town-h dl. We do not speak too sanguinely we hope in thinking the trades connected, therewith will be talerably well employed during the ensuing autumn.
BRIDGEND. Ox Monday last the teetotallers of Aberavon, Neath, Kenfig Bridgend, Pyle, and Conielly, held a meeting, in the morning, at the Methodist Chapel, Conielly. The chair being taken by Mr. John Pniilips, of Aberavon Mr. John Thomas, oi Hridgend, alJd the Rev. Thomas, of Bwk-h Newydd, addressed the meeting iu Welsh and English. At the Conclusion of the meeting the teetotal choir sang several pieces of sacred music through the town. Returning at two (Adock the meeting was again addressed by the lie v. — Thomas, of liwlch Newydd, Lleweliyn Llew ellyn, and ilic Rev-, I).• Phillips, Landow. They again paraded the town, the Taibach choir singing. They then proceeded, at six o'clock,' to the Independent Chapel, Kenlg. Mr. Thomas Hugh, of Bridgend, and Il". John Jones, of Aberavon, addressed those present. The proceedings of the day terminated at eight o'clock; when all (xpressed t'.iemselved highly delighted. ON Saturday last Wonibwell's coilecfion of wild beasts paid a visit to this town. A great number of the inhabitants gave themselves a treat to the menagerie, with which they seemed highly gratified. ■SUICIDE.—1On Sunday morning last the inhabitants of Lan- harran were put into a state of great alarm by a report, which unfortunately proved too true, that 1r. Walters Richards, of Yistradywerj, a'respM'table farmer, hadcollllnittcd suicide by hanging himself in the barn. It appears from inquiry that a law suit between Mr. Richards and the Soutil Wales Railway Com- pany, relative to some land, was expected shortly to be brought before the Court of Queen's Bench. This, it is feared, had p re ye on his mind. Mr. Richards was about 81 year of age. At the inquest verdict of "Temporary Insanity was returned.
NEWPORT. MONUMENT TO Slft CHAIUXS MORGAN.—The monument to ti E late Sir Charles Morgan Bart., in Bassaleg Church, is now fixed in its place at the North side of the Chan-eel. It is from the studio of Mr. J. Evan Thomas, aud is plain and simple, but of excellent workmanship it is carved in statuary marble, and being Italian in; design corresponds thusmucl1 with I he style of the architecture parts of the Chancel itself, which bears evident traces of the Italianizing so much in fashion in the last century, and from which so many of our ancient gothic churches have suffered. The design consists of an arch and mouldings with a cherubim-carved keystone, between pilasters which support a rich cornice. On the pilasters the family arms are emblazoned in a series of pannels which from their rich culolFing furm a pleasing contrast to the lustrous whiteness of the marble, the whole effect being rich as well as chaste. We doubt whether any monument more ornate, would have so good an effect. the interior of the church itself being of the plainest possible description. The monument to the late Lady Morgan, which occupies the next place nearer the Kd window, contains some good sculpture. NKWPOKT AND POMYPOOL itkit.w,,Y. We understand tha' there are some hopes of this line being at length brought into practical operation. It is now proposed with every prospect of its being realised to lay the sleepers and rails,on the portion already completed, and erect a station at the G. te, without waiting for the extension to the Docks, For this boon the in- habitants of Newport and l'ontypool are, we believe, indebted to the energetic management, of CraWshay Bailey, We should hardly doubt that an increased dividend, would ensue to theCanaI Company fr-in tl)is resolution. It is no,wc-uelleve, yet decided what route the extension to the Dock will take. BAKvAlm'sPAXOHAL\Thjs thoroughly Yankee affair, the gigantic panorama of the Missisipi, and Ohio Rivers, said to be three miles long, is likely lo meet with success in Newport. "Very tolerable audiences have attended to see this picture of,lic wonders QAI the Fa,; West.' ,C. TUB' DOCK.—The Dock is by no means full at present, but Newport can certainly boast of some very large vessels. I/10 Brandon, Hartley, aud one or two more are very fine ships. l!le form, r is of 1,600 tons, and is loading with rail-iron, of which she will take, as is easily understood, an inordinate.quantity. SHOP FRONTS.—Altering and beautifying shop fronts seem the order uf the day in Newport, and in every direction we perceive new and stylish erections springing up in the room of the od dIrty and tasteless abortions. We may point to those of Mr. Phillips, Druggist; Mr. Watkins, Hatter; Mr. Hugh Morgan, Butcher, with its neatly carved brackets and marble slabs, as steps in the riht direction. We are glad to notice that the shops at the cor- lIer of the Railway entrance, arc also to be beautified a little, and hope something creditable will be the result, the site being 'eonspicous. Tiii; barque Esther Frances of this town, arrived at Falmouth last Sunday, from Havannah, sixty-one days' passage, under the charge of Mr. Durnpac>\ the mate. It appears that Mr. Michael, the master, was handcuffed by the crew on June 14, being six days after leaving llavannah, and has thus been confined to his cabin ever since that date. An alleged charge is made that lie attempted to poison some person or persons on board, by mixing, what is described as extract of lead, with some water in a jug, to which Mr. Shaw, a passenger, the mate, second Ilwte, and a cabin boy had access. A magisterial investigation is h ing made into this x tinordinary affair.
rONTYPOOL. On Friday evening, the 19th instant, at the Market-bouse chamber, the inhabieauts of this town had a great musical treat in consequence of the visit of the celebrated Messrs. Distius" The evening's performances were introduced by a grand quartette, from Donizetti's Opera of Belisario, on tho Sax-horns. The concen-room was quite crowded, the most respectable inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood were present, and were highly delighted with the aecomp ishmenls of the er- formers. The entertainment terminated ivith "God Save the Queen." ON Thursday last, the third anniversary of the society fo" improvement of Church music in the archdeaconry of Monmouth, was held at Trevethin Church. The day was delightfully fine, and, consequently, there was a very large attendance. The so- ciety has iur its object, to assist from its funds choirs, where I ever it is needed, in getting instruction in music and singing, and I am sure that those who have, ever been in the- habit of attending some country churches, will at once be fully convinced that such a society was much required. The Rev. Wm. Evans prcahed an admirable sermon, from Psalm 47th and 7th verse He dwelt much upon congregational singing, which is one great object the society has in view. Too much praise cannot be given to W. A. Williams, Esq., jun., and the committee, with the choir generally, f(,r the time and labour they have given to such a laud- able work. At the close of the service a collection was made,which amounted to about £ 17. The music and singing throughout, waa pronounced by all to be truly excellent. Afterwards the annual, meeting was held at the town school-room, when Arch- deacon Crawley occupied the chair. The speakers were SirDigby Mackworth, Bart., Archdeacon Williams, llev. Mr. Price, Ilural dean, Rev. Mr. Hookin, Gabriel Phillips, — Bluet, Jones. The proceedings of the day past off to the satisfaction of all, The next anniversary is fixed to be held at Chepstow. ON Monday last the annual meeting of the British and Foreign Bible Society, was held at the town school-room. The chair was taken by W. W. Phillips, Esq., jun., in the absence of his father, who has, for many years, been a staunch supporter of the society. rlie Itev. Mr. Kent attended as a deputation from the Parent Society, and he really laid the claims of the society before the audience in a most concise and clear manner. He was most enthusiastically applauded at the close, and it is sincerely hoped, that what was stated by him, Would make those present feel the great necessity of (loubling their energy in so excellent a cause as the spreading of God's word abroad to those who are perishing for lack of knowledge. The other speakers were the Rev. '1'. Davies, of Treyethin, the Rev. lr, Carter, Wesleyan minister, and the Hev. Mr. Keddle, Independent minister. It was much regretted the attendance was not larger upon such an interesting occasion. POLICE-—SATURDAY, July 29. — [Before the Rev.

DRYNMAWr- FvTiiNSiVE F.ULUiiK. — The London Gazette of Friday week, contains, in its list of bankrupts, the name of John Jones, c'jal-tocrcliam, Brymnawr, near Nantyglo. Mr. Jones, we understand, was one of the shareholders in the Victoria Iron Works, which proved a most disastrous concern. He was also the owner of three ships tradingfruln Newport, engaged in the foreign trade of a large colliery at Ab.erty.lery, near Crumlin a general grocery establishment at Beaufort, and another at Victoria;, also,, ol' a monster drapery and grocery shop at Brvnmawi— the largest building of the kind, we believe, in Brvnmawi— the largest building of the kind, we believe, in South Wales. Th London and Manchester houses will be heavy sufferers by the failure; and some Bristol houses are creditors' for large siiiis. The liabilities are supposed to Le at least thirty thousand pounds. Few meti of business were better or more favourably known than Mr. Jones, of Brynmawr, who has been in trade in the saii-ic p-aritih for eighteen years. LAYlNGTIE FOUNDATION STONE OF BEIIEA INDKP.-INPTNR the revival in 1819, the Indepen- dent church assembling at Berea, increased so much that the chapel where they used to assemble became to small, upon which they determined to build a new chapel, the site of which was sold as freehold property, by Messrs. T. LI. Brewer and £ o„ to whom as well as to J. Bailey, Esq., M.P., and others, the church and congregation desire to return sincere thanks for their liberal aid. Last Tuesday, accordingly was fixed for laying the foundation stone which was laid in the presence of a vast multitude,opposite the Bslaiua Inn-, precisely at seven o'clock in the morning, by the venerable old patriarch, Mr. John Jones, aged 81, and Mr. Richard (Iiiffiili, aged 10, the eldest and youngest members ii: the church.

,« :■ /■■■ TiiEFORES^. r On Monday, July the 8th, the children of Glyntaff Church Sunday School assembled with their teachers, at two o'clock, at the church, and after various exercises in singing (which was conducted in a highly respectable manner and reflected the greatest credit on those' teachers who have devoted so much of their time and talents to the training of the children in this delightful and stirring devotion) they were led out two by two in procession, preceeded by the sinners, who sang several lively pieces, and, coupled with the orderly conduct of the children, produced the most-pleasing effect, and on reach- ing the residence of the Incumbent, the Rev. J.

Afterwards they again paraded through the pleasant and healthy neighbourhood and back to the church, where they were addressed in- a very impressive manner by the minister, from the thirty-fourth psalm and the eleventh verse Come ye children hearken unto me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord, which was listened to with attention, and after singing, they separated at half-past eight o'clock, evidently delighted with the pleasures of the day.

Mr. Howell is accompanied to America by his brother and family, from the neighbourhood of Cowbridge. The state of his lieaan has induced Mr. Howell to relinquish the ministry, aud on his arrival in the Ncw he will unite with his friends devoting himself to agricultural pursuits..

.ABEnGAVEXY, The DISTIXS' CONCKKT.—-On Monday evening last the lovers of nuwic in this towuj and neighbourhood, were honoured with a visit, by those famed and talented performers, the Messrs. Disiics* &c., We well remember some three or four years ago, when ihev visited this place, the plaudits bestowed oil lhcm then and not we think undeservedly, by those who well know how to appreciate their talents.. We fully anticipated an overflowing on this occ^ion, but we regret to state, the attendance was anything but encouraging, which we attribute to many of the leading faniilh s in the neighbourhood having left their seats at this the year for the watering places. Notwithstanding the paucity ei visitors, the Messrs. Distius' exhibited as much spirit in their per- formances as if the house was crowded. We have much pleasure in stating that: these gentlemen intend paying us another visit eit the winter closes and we doubt not but that they will have a bumper then. The programme for the evening, was most inviting containing pieces of variety, and great talent. The evening*- tntertainmect was opened with a quartette from Donizettis, opera. of "Belisario;" here the Mess rs.,Distins'fX:hibitedwonde:'n: execution on the sax-horn, which took the captivated listener by surprise.

YKSTKRIIAY afternoon a little consternation was occasioned in St. Mary-street, by a strong smoke emitting fnnn a chimney, in a house in what is generally termed Broth lane, or Wharton- street.

POLICE.—MONDAY, JULY 22.-[Before his Worship the Mayor and C. C. Williams, Esq.] Goorrje Day and Peter Fry, the two ftieu whowdt liberated on their own bail and who did not attend afttliu last court as expected, for attempting to defraud the South Wales Hail way Company, by riding in one of their carriages from Newport to this town, being ulso at the time in a state of intoxication, were brought up to-day under a warrant. Evan Evans deposed that on last. Saturday fort- night he was a passellgerby the last train fro ill Newport to Cardiff •and while sitting in the carriage lie saw the two ptisoners come into the wrong side 'of the line and enter one of the carriag-cs" They were both intoxicated-. They rode to Cardiff, where they flighted. —P.C. Joseph Garrett, of the Cardiff-station, proved that Vne men had tickets. The two men, who had been employed on the line from the commencement, said that they had been accustomed to ride free and saw no harm in doing that with which they were ■charged. Had they heca sober they might not have done it. They received a goad character from their employer, Mr. Evans, the first witness, who was a contractor on the line. The Mayor con- sidering the ca-ie one worthy of mitigation, fined the two men os, ■and costs. David Williams, master of the Lady of the Lake, was charged 7"ith entering the cutway at the time the bail Was hauled down. The detcniant said that he had been a master only two mouths -and seeing a red flag flying thought that was, the signal for his .Entering. ° Many vessels had entered before him. Had he, been >aequ.aiiUed vith the regulations he should have acted otherwise. The Mayor made several inquiries respecting the custom of raising and lowering the ball, andthoughtthat there was more trade going on at tlHI docks than could, for the convenience of vessels be trans- acted.
