BRECONSHIRE. 3 BRECONSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. The Breconshire Quarter Sessions were held on Tuesday last, before Henry Allen Esq, Chairman, and a full bench of magistrates, at the Shire Hall, which has recently been made very commodious. There were three appeals to orders of removal entered for trial, viz. Llangather, Carmarthenshire, Appellants, Ystradgunlais, Breconshire, Respondent.—Touching the removal of Anne Evans, widow and her two children. Order quashed by consent.

Llansamlet, Glamorganshire, Appellant, and Llaneily, Breconshire, Respondent.rouching the removal of Mary Rees, (wife of William Rees) and their three children. The respondents made out a primil facie case by showing the maiden settlement of Mary Rees to be in the appellant parish, and the appellants having failed in proving the settlement of the husband, who is now in America, the justices' order was confirmed. There were two prisoners for trial, William Price and Tryphena Prothro, alias Morgan, each charged with larceny. They were both acquitted. The following appeals to orders of removal were lodged, and the trials thereof respited until the next sessions. Llanwenarth, Monmouthshire, appellant, and Llaneily* Breconshire, respondent; Devynnock, Breconshire, ap- pellant, and St. Mary's, Brecon, respondent; St. Wollas, Monmouthshire, appellant, and St. John the Evangelist, Brecon, respondent; Merthyr Tydvil.

The rules of the Cambrian Friendly society held at the Swan Inn, 'Brecon, and those of the society held at the Three Horse Shoes, in the parish of Llanvihangel Nant- brane, were confirmed, and filed with the clerk of the peace, pursuant to the late act of Parliament. Previous to the Grand Jury, nineteen in number, (of whom, Henry Vaughan, Esq. of Ilanvillo, was foreman), fceing discharged, the learned Chairman reminded them of the provisions of the Reform Act, particularly as to notices of claims to vote being delivered to the overseers on or before the 20th of Jtfly; and he also explained the neces- sity for great care being taken in making out the returns of persons liable to serve upon juries, the forms for which were delivered by the clerks of the peace, to the chief con. stable, pursuant to the 6th of Geo. IV. cap. roo HAY—We regret to learn that the funds for erect- ing the new Chbrch at this place are not adequate, but we earnestly hope that the benevolent feelings of the Christian public will induce them to supply the deficiency. CRICKHOWELL Those infatuated marauders, the Scotch Cattle, have, though not in great numbers, commenced their outrages in this neighbourhood. The Clydach colliery, the Company's wharf, at Lla- nelly, aud the house of Mr. Williams, at Langattock, have been visited by them in their usual manner but, between the determined resolution of the inhabitants, and the active exertions of the magistracy, there is good reason to expect that every man of them will, ere long, receive the full measure ef punishment that he I ighteously deserves. CRICKHOWELL FANCY BA.ZAA.R.- The ladies resident in Crickbowell and its vicinity, for the be. nevolent purpose of founding an infant school, wrought up the materials of a very handsome display of useful and ornamental articles which made their appearance on the 26th of last month, at the bazaar at Crick- howell. That this excellent purpose might be pur- sued with the greatest success, the Vicar, on the previous evening, invited his parishioners to prayer in the parish church, where, like Hezekiah of old., "spreading the whole matter before the Lord, he invoked the divine blessing on the undertaking. On the following day, the devotion and benevolence of ihe public equally conduced to five to the endeavours f > f. of the fair artisans, who had exerted themselves on 1 this interesting occasion, a harvest of crowning suc- cess. The beautiful competitor" for custom, who presided at the different stalls, exerted themselves in the disposal of their elegant merchandize with a per- severance, which is not surpassed in any of our shops on market day, and with a grace, which showed how perfectly compatible the most earnest importunity may be with the most delicate sense of female modesty. The success of the day's sale was such as could have been produced only by this rare concurrence of many excellent causes; in fact, it produced no less than £ 160. At the principal stalls, Mrs. and the Misses Baileys of Glanusk, and Miss Bevan, of Glan yr avon, presided with great elegance of manner, and with equal s.ki!l in securing customers. Nor can We with- hold our encomium of the taste evinced by the gen- tlemen artists in the erection and decoration of the stalls. So great was the attraction of the tout ensem- ble, that the receipts at the doors alone, for tickets at Is. each, amounted to between 101. and Ill, MILFORO, Jur.T 4, 1833.—The brig Plansworth, Nesbet, from Newport, bound to London, with a caro of iron and tin, put in at Milford this week leaky, and has since been hauled alongside the wharf, in order to be discharged and undergo the necessary repairs. CAUTION.—OIL Sunday eveniug last, about half a mile from this place, a man apparently in a state of intoxication, in attempting to get up behind the mail coach going at full speed, unfortunately missed his hold and came back with such force to the ground, as to lie for some moments insensible. Medical assist- ance being procured, it was ascertained that a severe contusion of the head had been received, and his face terribly disfigured, the necessary means to restore animation were immediately resorted to, and he so far recovered as to be pronounced out of danger. We do not remember having seen at any time more company than are here this season: there is not a lodging but what has been engaged, and our prome- nades continually wear a gay and fashionable appear- ance. Among the late arrivals we notice — Sir William and Lady Phillips; P. Clarke, Esq.; Curtis, Esq.; T. P. McDonnell, Es4. Doctor Morgan, and family; Captain Grey, and family; Mr. Pape; Air. Wright; Mr- Brahain; Mr. Cousins, and family; Mrs. Hanmer; Misses Harris; Miss Wood; Miss Wil- liams, &c. ÐIYNER TO SIR. R. R, VYVYA?T—On Wednesday week a most animating meeting took place at Bristol, on the occasion of a dinner given by the constituency of that city to their justly admired representative, Sir Richard Vyvyan. The company consisted of about 500 in number, and comprised. with few exceptions, alltheniost respectable gentlemen in Bristol and in its neighbourhood. Previous to the dinner, an admirably wrought cutsnnff box, out of an oak beam which formed part of the Custom House at Bristol, was presented to Sir Richard, with a very appro- priate address, by Mr. Charles Taylor- The entertainment took place in a pavilion 132 feet by 51, erected for the occasion on the extensive grounds belonging to the residence formerly occupied by Col. Baillie. The lOyal and animating toasts given on the occasion were introduced by music, and besides an excellentband, eight professional and amateur vocalists of great skill and taste added zest to the pleasures of the day. All those toasts, which men who love their country and understand its interests drink with delight, were given; and when the health of Sir Richard Vyvyan was drank, with acclamations loud and long, the honourable Baronet returned thanks in a speech which we hope we have better taste than to attempt to abridge. The speech, which is given in our conteinporay, the Bristol Journal, is one of national, and of deep national importance and the public, if they will clearly understand the public interest, will read it in the origina'- and it will excite in them most important reflections. After the health of the honourable Baronet had been drank, several other loyal and patriotic toasts were drank, and eloquently acknow- ledged and the evening passed in a state of enjoyment and exultation rarely equalled. A BILL FOR THE FARTHER EXTENSION OF FORGERY.—These words are the proper, designation of the bill proposed by his Majesty's most sagacious advisers, with respect to the Bank charter. A swindler in any part of the country will order goods exceeding five pounds in value. From the moment they are in his hands, the transaction becomes a matter of debtor and creditor. By the wise pro- visions of the bill, a bank note is to be a legal tender. Scaramouch offers his bank note, and (what tradesman in England can detect a forged note?) the creditor is bound to accept the legal tender." rong before John Draper, or William Goldsmith, or whatever he is, can send his precious bargain up to London and learn what it is made of, my gentleman is over the hills and far away." No doubt the silversmiths, the innkeepers, the stage coach proprietors, the tailors, and bootmakers, and many others, will have a brisk trade of it. Richardson, M. C. and M'Donnell, M. D. will be too maDY lor us at last, by the help of the King's ministers. POLITICAL U.Niori.-The Birmingham Political Union men have had a meeting. at which after a hearty execration of the Whigs and Tories, and the 11 corrupt constituency of the country. they have resolved to adjourn their future meeting. nrn die, because the cash runs dry. They have not been able to help; themselves to other people's cash so soon as they expected. THE DUTCH WEST INDIES—The agi ation of the Emancipation question has produced fearful effects in the Dutch settlements. At Surinam a revolt, instigated prin- cipally by three youths under twenty, has broken out, and commenced action, in the usual manner, by the destruction of property by fire. It was checked in an early stage of its progress, and when the accounts came away, it was under discussion whether the agitators of the mouvtfment should or should not, according to the old law of the settlement, be burned to death in the fire of their own kindling. We hope no such doings will take place in the British settle- ments. BooK. DEBT. A correspondeut on this subject writes as follows A bill being now before parliament relating to debtor and creditor, I, am astonished at the apathy shown by tradesmen, in not coming forward to petition for a clause to the effect that outstanding book debts sha 1 bear interest after a certain time-say all ao counts delivered in December, if not paid before the 1st of April fol owing, bear interest the same as a promissory note. —Bath Journal. J ANECDOTE OP BURKE.—During one of the de- bates on the affairs of America, Hartley, the Member for Hull, after having driven four-fifths of a very full house from the benches, by an unusually dull speech, at length requested that the not act might be read, for the purpose ofelucidating one of his propositions. Burke, who was impatient to address the house himself, immediately started up. and exclaimed, fI The riot act! my dearest friend, wh>, in he name of every thing sacred, have the riot act rr i urn' you 8ee» is already dispersed Peals of laughter followed the utterance of this comic appeal, which Lord North frequently declared to be one of the happiest instances of wit he ever heard. Georgian Era. FOUNTAIN OF FiitF-The Notizie del Giorno of Rome states, that in digging a well at Gaarino's in the district of Conegliano, a fountain of fire was discovered, or rather a current of hydrogen gas, which in two days rose to upwards of two yards, and with a diameter of about eight inches. Some days afterwards, when the perforation had reached the depth of about fifty yards, the current bccame so powerful that the flame rose to about eleven yards, but keepmg nearly the same di.meter as before, and throwing up at the same time a quantity of water, clay, and sand.
