POLICE MONDAY, AUGUST 5.-[Before his Worship the Mayor and C. C. Williams, Esq.] Elizabeth Payne was summoned for non-payment of pitching and paving in front of her house, the Aberdare Inn, in Lewis-street. She pleaded great poverty, but the Magistrates told her that as she belonged to the property it must be paid. The house is let to a tenant, and the Magistrates suggested that the tenant should pay the debt out of his rent. Mr. Watkins informed the Bench that she possessed other properties which brought in a good income. The money had been owing eight years. Ordered to pay i:0 a quarter. Mrs. Edwards appeared to show the possession of the potatoes stated last week to have been stolen from Mr. Williams's garden. Mr. Bird appeared for the woman. A man of the name of Lewis, who sold the potatoes, stated that he had dug them from his own garden. He brought a sample of his own growing, which, when mixed with those found in the woman's possession, could not be distinguished. Dismissed. Richard Bryant was complained against by Mr. Watliin-s for evading the usual market toll by selling in the street. The defend- ant admitted the charge, but said that he had been in the habit of paying toll to the market every week, but was not aware that he was not allowed to sell in the streets. Fined in the mitigated penalty of Is. and costs. Catherine Collington was charged with stealing moneys from a black man, namedW Ill. Lester, a seaman on board the Manchester barque. She stopped him on Friday night, between eleven and twelve o'clock, near Bute-street, picked his pocket, and ran into a house. Upon being followed and aceused of the robbery by a policeman, who threatened to take her into custody, she said, I won't be locked up for a few shillings, I would rather give up the money." P. C. Nash said that he was present and heard her admit the theft. Committed for trial. John Leary for creating a disturbance when drunk in St. Mary- street and Landore-court, on Sunday evening, was fined os. and tosts. THURSDAY, AUGUST 8.—[Before his Worship the Mayor and C. C. Williams, Esq.] John Heury, a lad, was placed at the bar. Mr. Stoclcdale in- formed the Magistrates that he had been detained for having in his possession a shawl, which he said lie had found at the bottom of the feeder, near Bradley-lane bridge. Henry's attention was at- tracted to it whilst passing that way, and on getting it out a stone was rolled up in it, as if for the purpose of sinking it. The Magis- trates discharged the boy, but requested the press to make it known that a shawl was in the possession of Mr. Stocicdole, which any person claiming and proving as their own might have by applying at the station-house. ASSAULT.—John Long complained against James Price for an assault committed at the Happy Return public-house, in Lewis- street. From the appearance ot complainant's face, who is a spare man, there was no doubt he received a severe thrashing. The de- fendant in the case was the landlord of the public-house in question, and the complainant went into the house for the purpose of drink- ing. In one of the rooms was a navigator-looking fellow with a prostitute, who volunteered a conversation with compfciinant. Some words ensued, and blows passed between men in the room, when defendant took off his coat, and commenced an attack upon Long, who it appears had made a remark upon the conduct of certain parties drinking there. The defendant said that the dispute arose out of a lack of money to pay for beer that had been drunk. A witness named Philip Herbert was called, who deposed that he e&w Price turning Long out of his house, and in doing so saw Long stride ince two or three times. The Mayor said he happened to be passing at the time, and he saw Long coming out of the house in a most fearful condition; in fact, he) appeared to be almost butchered, and the defendant following him in the most ferocious manner. The house he, the Mayor, had heard was of notorious character, and had been for a long time a pest to the neighbourhood. He was pained to see a young man in the prime of life living upon the prostitution of others, and he should certainly make an example of The decision of the Magistrates was that Price be fined JE3 and cost, or one months' imprisonment. Jo/m Jones was summoned for selling certain articles called vegetables, from a truck in Bridge-street, on Saturday morning last. The defendant stated that his trade was so small, that to pay for a stall in the market would run away with nearly or the whole of his profits. The case being considered to be proved by the Magistrates, he was fined in the mitigated penalty of 6d. and ex- penses. Martin TToskins, alias Punch, was summoned by Ann Anthony a masculine looking woman, for all assault. From the statements of the complainant, it appeared that ou last Monday night week, she was Coining up Bute street corner, about a quarter past eleven o'clock, and, on passing the door of her lodgings,she asked her land lady a question. Punch, who was talkingto the woman, without a previous remark, struck complainant a blow, which knocked her down. She never struck him, or in the slightest degree assaulted him. Witnesses from the house in Whitmore-lane, where com- plainant resided, were called, who corroborated complainant's statements. The defendant in defence said, that his wife had been indecently assaulted by Anthony, and that was the cause of his behaving in the manner described. No witnesses, however, were produced, or could any evidence be procured that such an assault had been offered. Fined 5s. and expenses, or fourteen days' im- prisonment, The Mayor expressed his utter disapproval of the conduct of Hoskins in many cases, and warned him as to his future conduct. Charles Dyke was charged with stealing a sovereign from Charles Collins, while near the Hayes bridge. Mr. It. Reece appeared for the prisoner. It appeared that Collins was passing over the bridge when the prisoner and his companions came up and asked prosecu- tor to toss for a sovereign. He refused to do so, and on being chaffed" that he had no sovereign in his pocket, he was induced to take one from his pocket, which was, on being produced, taken from him. The prisoner then went into a public-house and was followed by prosocutor.whcn he was given into custody, after having spent a portion of the money. The prisoner said that the sovereign was given him by Collins, and finding there was a fuss about it had paid 16s. 6d.—the remaining portion-over to Mr. Stockdale. The Magistrates dismissed the case, ordering that the difference be made up.
MEllTIIYIt. A meeting, called by requisition to the Chief-constable, took place at the Bush Inn, on Wednesday evening week. Mr. Robert Jones in the chair. The Chairman, in opening the meeting, read the notice and then briefly stated the object of the meeting. Mr. David W. James then said that as he had taken an active part in getting up the requisition, he felt it his duty to express his sentiments upon what he thought to be a grievance. In common with many gentleman then present, he felt they suf- fered much inconvenience from the times fixed for the arrival and departure of the trains on the Taff Vale Railway. He had no hostile resolution to propose against the company, but he wished that they should know the opinion of the tradesmen and inhabitants of the town in respect of the late arrangements. He did not see that by these the convenience of Merthyr had been consulted at all. He had called upon Mr. Hill, who was of his opinion, and he would just read extracts from two letters which he had received from Mr. Bushell and Mr. Fisher, by which it appeared they were anxious, in the new arrangements, to place Merthyr in a better position than before, but which, he was sorry to say, placed it in a worse position. He would take Bridgend for instance; it was about the same distance from London as Merthyr. That place had its letters at half- past seven, and we had not our's until half-past ten. Now he should be glad to know why could not our letters be had at the same time as at the former town ? He believed that the direc- tors of the Taff Vale Railway would listen to any expression of opinion which might emanate from this place, and that they would so arrange matters that there would be no cause for complaint. Again, in respect of the transit from here to Aber- dare; if a person wanted to go there from Merthyr by the first train he would actually be obliged to wait at the Navigation about two hours or more. Certainly when such facts should be placed before Mr. Bushell he would at once see the necessity of something being done. Mr. Shepherd, as representing the Cyfartha company, could not see any grounds for delaying the letters two or three hours at Cardiff, and he certainly thought if it were fairly represented to the directors that they would cause the arrangements to be changed. Mr. Wolrige, for the Plymouth company, expressed a similar opinion. Mr. Thomson, of the Bank, thought that they had had a great improvement in the extension of the time for forwarding letters, which now enabled almost all persons to answer by the I same post. Still, perhaps, something might be gained in the morning. A desultory conversation ensued, in which Mr. Russell, Mr Shepherd, Mr. Frank James, and other gentlemen „ook part; and Mr. John James, surgeon, ultimately proposed that the following gentlemen be appointed a committee, to confer with Mr. Bushell:—Mr. D. W. James, Mr. Russell, Mr. Shepherd, Mr. Wolrige, and Mr. Robert Jones. Thanks were then voted to the Chairman, and the meeting broke up. A WOMAN KILLED BY A BULL.—A servant girl named Mary Williams, in the employment of Mr. Griffith Thoma, of Pantglas, near this town, was unfortunately killed by a bull on Thursday last. From the evidence of Morgan Thomas, proved at the inquest before John Morgan, Esq., deputy coroner, it appeared that he, who is a servant, was driving the cattle home to be milked. Ha sent the bull first and the cows afterwards. When he came in sight of the bridge going towards the house, he saw the bull goring and throwing the girl about. He pelted him away, and another man came to his assistance. They picked her up and found a large wound upon her thiah, and another on her eye. She died at two o'clock on Monday. Mr. Phillips, surgeon, attended her. Verdict, "Death fro.n being gored by a bull." Before the same coroner, at the Cardiff Arms, Hirwain, July 31st, on the body of Elizabeth Morgan, aged seventy-two. The evidence proved that she appeared on the previous night in her usual health, and was taking supper when she fell down without saying anything. A medical man attended but life was extinct. Verdict," Death from natural causes." ENGLISH TEMPERANCE ASSOCIATION.—Mr. Stephens delivered a lecture on Electricity, to the members of the above associa- tion, on Wednesday night last. There was a very full at- tendance of both ladies and gentlemen, and the lecturer gave much satisfaction. Mr. Daniel Watkins, whose name as a successful experimenter in this captivating science we have before introduced to our readers, performed several interest- ing experiments with great applause. We hear the associa- tion will in a short time engege a talanted lecturer, for the purpose of giving a series of Temperance Lectures. UNITARIAN CHAPEL AT TWIN-YR-ODYN.— The Rev. J. C. Lunn, who was formerly pastor of the Unitarian church, at Hinckley, in Leicestershire, has commenced his pastoral charge at the above chapel. He preached for the first tune on Sunday, and the congregation were numerous and attentive, both in the morning and afternoon. ROBBERY FROM THE PERSON,—John TVilde and Margaret Williams, denizens of the famous China, were charged before H. A. Bruce, Esq. and Mr. W. Thomas, withtobbing one Henry Jones of E27, on Saturday 27th of July. Henry Jones, in his evidence, swore he was a pig driver from Carmarthenshire, and that he was persuaded by the prisoners to go with them to get lodgings. They took him over the Iron bridge to a lonely spot and then knocked him down, and whilst in that position they took his money. He felt the hand of one of them in his pocket, but which he could not say. Afterhe got up he asked Wilde for his money, but he said he had not got them, and they both then rau away. Tie hallooed after them but they got away. He did not make his loss known until the Monday week afterwards, as he expected his master from Carmarthen- shire. Wm. Jones and Wm. Williams gave corrobative evi- dence as far as seeing the prisoners going with Jones in the direction intimated. Sergeant Rees gave evidence as to taking the prisoner Wilde into custody, and that he most solemnly denied being in the town on that night. He saw the place which was very lonely, and sent the man who had lost the money along with a police- man to see whether he could identify him. He brought him intelligence that he had, and therefore he was taken into custody. Margaret Williams was afterwards placed at the bar charged with robbing Richard Williams. The evidence went to show that he had gone with the prisoner, and when he went with her he had a f5 note and one sovereign. He knew he had them just before, and when he left her the money was gone. After she left he missed the money and ran after her. When he fdc her hand in his pocket he fe't his pocket and felt his purse there, but he did not know that the money was gone until he opened the pursa; he then gave information to the police. He found uj on h;s person 17s. 9jd. The famde prisoner when brought in said she never saw tie person at (lJl before then in the Statun-htu.e. Mr. Russell, who appeared for Wilde, said that he believed he had nothing to say. Wilde, when asked what he had to say, said that he was not in the town after five o'clock, and was only out at the Wellington afterwards that night drinking two bottles of pop. Margaret Williams said she never saw the man who was robbed till yesterday at least to the best of her knowledge. Elizabeth Davis gave evidence that the prisoner came to her and bought some peas. She said she was very glad she had worked Old Dick out of six sovereigns. Let him do his best to get six sovereigns again I am ready to take them. Both parties were committed to take their trial at the next assizes, but the magistrates were willing to accept bail in the two cases of £50 each. John 1 homas and John Williams were fined for drunkenness and creating a disturbance.—Robert Williams, for breaking a window at Dowlais, was fined 2s. 6d. and costs.—Wm. Coslett, for kicking Thomas Powell, 10s. and costs.—Harriet Prosser, for an assault upon Elizabeth Davis.—Nathaniel Lewis, Fountain public-house, fined 10s. and costs for drawing beer on Sunday morning.—Richard Richards, Druid's Harp, charged with selling beer on the morning of Sunday last, fined 10s. and costs. -Morgan James, of the Glyndwr public-house, was fined £ 1 and costs.—Esther Evans was charged with keeping her house open after twelve o'clock case postponed. THE Members of the Lady Charlotte Lodge of Odd Fellows, had a social gathering at the Globe Inn, on Tuesday evening last. The. dinner was in Mrs. Joseph's best style; and speeches, songs, and recitations were given by several persons in the course of the evening. The evening was spent very pleasantly and the spirit of Amro, Amicitia, et Veritas, seemed to reign paramount. MANSLAUGHTER AT ABERDARE. An inquest wss held on Tuesday last, at the Black Lion, Aberdare, before J. Morgan, Esq., deputy coroner, on the body of David Lewis. The different witnesses proved that the parties had been drinking, on Sunday, at the Blaennant public-house, and that they took some beer and rum to a meadow not far from that place. That some dispute took place about a race, and that the deceased had some fighting with one Rowland Jones. That it appeared he was afterwards kicked very severely and struck by one Thomas Morgan. That he groaned very much after he was kicked, and never moved afterwards. He was carried home upon a plank. He died in about a minute and a half after he was kicked. The jury, after a most patient investigation, returned a verdict of Manslaughter against Rowland Jones and Thomas Morgan, and they were forthwith committed to jail upon the coroner's warrant.
NARBERTH. DEATH FROM DROWNING.—On Monday, the 5th instant, con- siderable sensation was caused in this town and neighbourhood by the appearance of a man on horseback, saturated with wet, and in a very excited state, who informed the public that his master, John Longbourne, Esq., of Bonville's-court, near Tenby, had been drowned in attempting to cross the river near Egre- mont-house. It appears that Mr. Longbourne had been in a gig with his servant to a fair held at Maenclochog, and that they drove down at a sharp pace into the ford, and that the water had very much increased in consequenee of the rain on Sunday and Monday, which so alarmed him that he leaped out, but being encumbered with two coats he sunk before Mr. Thomas, who was an observer of the circumstance and who did his utmost to save him, could come to his rescue. The corpse was picked up shortly after and carried to Egremont-house, whence it was removed the following day in a hearse. It is certainly time something should be done to this very dangerous place, which has proved fatal to many.

LONDON CORN EXCHANGE.
LONDON CORN EXCHANGE. MONDAY.—At Mark-lane there was a fine show of wheat this morning by land-carriage samples from Essex and Kent; having, however, a tolerably good demand, the stands were cleared, and last Monday's prieej were steadily supported. Several cargoes of wheat have arrived from abroad since the last supplies were made up we had, therefore, altogether a very good display of samples. The transactions were of a retail character, as buyers were not inclined to take more than they needed for immediate use the business done was, however, at previous prices. The top quotation of town-manufactured flour underwent no change, and other sorts were held at former terms. There was scarcely any barley of home growth, and its value must be regarded as almost nominal at present. Foreign barley was saleable in retail, at similar terms to those current on this day se'nnight. Malt was held very firmly, and was certainly not cheaper. The arrivals of oats, coastwise, were trivial, and notwithstanding the liberal character of the receipts from abroad, factors declined accepting lower terms for good corn, and we consider prices much the same as on Monday last. English beans were in good supply, and easily procurable, at previous prices. Quotations of foreign underwent no change. Peas were held for quite as much mouey for a small lot of new Kentish, 30s. per quarter was asked. We heard of no sales of floating or free-on-board cargoes of wheat, and the de- mand for Indian corn appears, for the present, to have quite sub- sided.

Oats, beans, peas, and flour were mostly held at late figures.

The Irish butter market still continues dull for general descriptions; and in some cases, where holders where anxious to sell, a trifling reduction had to be submitted to fine mild parcels were rather more looked for, in consequence of Dutch having advanced about 4s. per cwt. Bacon still continues dull, but prices remained steady during the week and for a really prime parcel of sizeable, Is. advance was obtained. Hamburgh meat in good supply, and offering at Is. reduction. In the English butter market the trade and prices remain about the same but fresh butter may be quoted rather dearer.

SMITHFIELD. MONDAY.—A considerable increase has taken place in the im- portations of foreign stock for this market. About 1,300 head of beasts, sheep, lambs, calves, and pigs, have been landed at the outports. The supply of foreiga beasts and sheep on sale in to- day's market was extensive, but of very middling quality. From our own grazing districts, the arrival of beasts fresh up thi morn- ing were seasonably large, and in improved condition. Notwith- standing that the dead markets were scantily supplied, the beef trade, owing chiefly to the prevailing warm weather, ruled inac- tive, at prices bearty equal to those obtained on Monday last. The extreme value of the best Scots was 2s. 8d. to 3s. lOd. per 81bs. The numbers of sheep being considerably on the increase, the mutton trade was in a very sluggish state, at a decline in value of 2d. per 81bs. The primest old Downs were selling at from 3s. lOd. to 4s. per 81bs. Prime Down lambs were scarce, and held at full prices. In all other breeds, exceedingly little business was trans- acted, at late rates. Calves, the supply of which was good, were in moderate request, at last week's quotations. The demand for pigs was heavy, at our quoted prices. :). Pnceperstone of Slbs. (to sink the offal). Ii. d. s. d. s. d. s. d.

DEATH IN A RAILWAY TitAIN. On Saturday morning an inquiry was instituted at the Town-hall, before L. R. Reece, Esq. coroner, to decide as to the death of Jane Jenkins, widow of John Jenkins, pilot, Great Frederick-street, aged fifty, who was found dead in the 7.7 up mail train, on Ftiday. It appeared that on the Monday week previous, she went to some friends to Bridgend, for change of air, and during Irer stay she did not write to her children whom she left behind. A daughter of the deceased stated that she did not know that her mother was com- ing home, and was only apprised of her arrival by being informed that she was dead at the station. Ann Humphries, a marii'd woman, of Cardigan, was coming from Swansea by the mail train to Cardiff, with her daughter and a young man of Cardiff. They were in one of the second-class carriages. The deceased Was carried into the carriage at Bridgend, by Thomas Williams and others, and vyas looking very ill. She was assisted to sit by those in the carriage, and after being placed in the Corner she Inerely lifted her eyes but took no notice of any person with her. Thomas Williams came with her. After getting a little distance along the line an alteration was observed in deceased s eyes, and her head gave Way as if she were Unable to support it. Thomas Williams, who sat opposite to her; was asked to support her, but he did not. When the train arrived at Llantrissant, Ann Humphries loosened her shawl from her neck to see if respiration 'was taking place. No appearance of life existed, and Humphries said she was deach It was also the opinion of the officers of the, train, who came in and looked dt her. All of them then left the Carriage except Thos. Williams^ who was requested to retriain with tieceasedô The coroner thought that at the present stage of the inquest Williams stood in a very difficult position* and suggested to the jury the necessity of an adjournmenK If evidence was not procured which would satisfactorily account for his bringing the woman to the train in that very weak state of health, the Jury would be obliged to And him guilty of manslaughter. Williams assured the jury that it was at the express wish of ,deceased that she returned home. He had offered her board and lodging for six mott-h;o and begged her to accept it. Up to the time of her leaving she had been out every day, and on yesterday fnorning, when she left, she rode to the station on horseback. A Witness was then called by Williams, who corroborated his state- ments with regard to deceased's wish to return home, and the coroner, thinking that circumstances more favourable to the case, allowed Wil iams to be sworm He then deposed in detail, W hat we have related in substance, and the jury returned the Verdict of Pied from natural causes." SOFTH WALES RAILWAY.—This railway is rapidly increasing in passenger tiaffic, and the to and fro excursion tickets seem to please the public amasingly well. Last Sunday arrivals and departures at the town were very great, and on the coming-in of the first up-train an immense concourse of visitors alighted at this station. As great a number also left, and the whole of the stations from Chepstow to Swansea, owing to the anxiety presented to gain accommodation and to secure seats, reminded us more of a Derby day than a Sunday. The number of car- riages to each train ranged from twelve to fifteen, and we under- stand that about 1,500 persons paid Swansea a visit. Some of the travellers who chose this town as their place of recreation, were rather too venturesome in their anxiety to see the place, and, to their surprise, were eased of the little ready cash they possessed. MR. WINSTONE'S cheap 'busses are a nine days' wonder. He has hit on a singularly ingenious method of increasing the traffic on his line by selling a book of thirty penny tickets for two shillings; by this means many are induced to avail them- selves of the accommodation he so liberally provides. BANVAKD'S Panorama, as our readers will perceive, continues a few days longer in our town. It has been verv extensively patronised this week. Those who have not seen it should lose no time in witnessing his faithful and spirited delineation of one of the wonders of the world. CRICKET.—To-day (Friday) a match is to be played between the Cardiff Cricket club and the Clifton club. Should the weather prove favourable there is no doubt the game will be an interesting one. THE STABBING CASE.—The man Burrows, who received a severe wound with a knife, and which was inflicted by an Austrian, in Whitmore-lane, a short time previous, is, we hear, in a very pre- carious state. He has been removed to the Luirmary where every attention will be paid him, but such symptoms have recently pre- sented themselves which render his recovery a matter of great doubt. THE CARDIFF STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY is progressing most favourably, and all that the company anticipated has come to pass. The Taliesin not only makes her passage swiftly, but she carries with her that which will remunerate all parties concerned, viz., large freights, and plenty of passengers. We see that the Star and the Prince of Wales have issued notices to the effect that all goods will be delivered free of charge from their vessels. It might be said that wonders will never cease." We hope the public will not forgot who they have to thank for this hitherto neglected alteration. SANITARY IMPROVEMENTS.—The hitherto unhealthy locality of Love-lane, is undergoing very necessary renovation. In several of the houses the occupiers have been ordered to quit, and previous to other tenants entering, are to be placed in a properly habitable state. The drains, &c., are also ordered to be made perfect. ACCIDENT.—On Saturday evening, an inquest was held at the Town-hall, before Lewis It. Reece, Esq., coroner, on the body »f William Cowderoy, a seaman, aged fifty-six, on board the Larch, of Bridge water. It appeared that the poor fellow had been ship- ped as cook to the vessel and whilst engaged in the cooking-house, Z" on Friday night, ha suddenly lost the use af his limbs, and falling forward on his head, broke his neck. It .vas supposed that he had fallen in a fit, and on a surgeon being called in to him, he was discovered to be quite dead. A verdict in accordance with these facts was returned. WE perceive our member, Dr. Nicholl, has introduced a bill into Parliament to permit certain portions of the rates to be applied to the superannuation fund for the county' police. We think the provisions of the bill might be extended so as to apply to town police as well.
