Sir Charles Morgan said, that as humble Sir Charles Morgan, but with no pretensions to the title of Prince of Wales, he thanked them for the honour they had done him. He would, in the seuse in which his friend had most justly so designated him, propose the health of "Sir Watkin Williams Wynne, the Prince of North Wales."—(Drank with great cheering.) Sir Charles then, in a very appropriate speech, pro- posed the health of Lord Rodney," which was drank with most animating cheers, and suitably ac- knowledged by the Noble Lord. Mr. Vevers, in the name of Mr. Hay ton, of Moreton Court, near Hereford, offered a challenge of three or six of the Hereford breed against three or six of the short-horned Monmouthshire breed, yearlings, to be fed by indifferent persons, either oil grass, hay, or roots, and to be shewn either in one or two years, for 100 guineas. The same gentleman afterwaids off,-red to shew a market of500 Hereford steers against 500 of any other county, for 1,000 guineas. A con- versation eusuedliti which Sir Charles Morgan and Mr. A. D. Jones supported the Monmouthshire breed Mr. Vevers and IVIR. Jones of Clytha contended for the Hereford breed. Sir Charles Morgan feared it might appear presumption in him to offer a challenge in favour of the short-horned breed but at length said that he should, in next year's prizes challenge the Hereford breed for a sweepstakes. Several other toasts, were afterwards given, and drank with great enthusiasm, and appropriately ac- knowledged. 11 Mr. George Morgan and the young oaks of Tredegar." "Reginald J. Blewitt,.

Perkit)s will, in a few weeks, launch a fine ship for Messrs. Drews, merchants, Bristol, for the West India trade. The keel of a ship of about 600 tons lias been laid down in the same bed from which the Daniel Grant was launched; this ship is intended for the China trade, from Bristol, that being one of the ports allowed to import tea. THE GREAT WESTERN KAILWAY.—A numerous meeting of the merchants of the port of Newport assembled at the King's Head Inn, in that town, as we stated in our last number, to confer with the Bristol deputation from the Bristol and London Rail- road Company. The. calculations and statements brought forward met with general approbation. About 30 shares were taken, and it was stated that, so far as Newport coal is concerned, it could be brought to market at about 10s. per ton less, at its present market price, than that ot the North of Eng- land, and other produce of course in proportion. It the tram-road contemplated by Joseph Bailey, Esq. to lead from Abergavenny to Usk, be completed, the consequent reduction of tonnage along the line will greatly benefit the Bristol Railway. NEWPORT AND PONTYPOOL BANK.-It is said that Reginald James Biewitt, Esq. of Llantarnam Abbey, is about to join the Newport and Poutypool Bank, on the I st of January next. SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—On Friday the 6th inst., one of the steam carriages of Messrs. Harford and Co., iu passing through Tredegar Park, by some unknown cause was overturned, aud thrown violently over the precipice into the park. One of the men was seriously injured but it is hoped not dangerously. FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT.-On Saturday the 7th inst., a workman in the employ of the Llanelly Com- pauy, named John Wenlaw, was standing, in the course of his occupation, ou the^pinnacle ot a rock, where there was not quite sufficient standing room for his feet. The explosion of ntine not taking place so soon as.. was expected, he moved incautiously from the place where he stood, it is supposed to see what was the cause of the delay, when the explosion suddenly took place, forcing upwards a huge mass of rock and fiingiug the unfortunate man down an immense pre- cipice, by which his instant death was occasioned.
