GRAND FLINTSHIRE EISTEDDFoD,-It affords liS great pleasure to hear of the continued successful applications made by the secretaries, to the different pall-otis, in behalf of this intended Bardic Festival. Sir Edward Mostyn, of Talacre, Bart. has signified to the Committee his intention to subscribe 50/. in aid of their funds. This munificent subscription quite accords with this worthy Baronet's usual liberality, and evinces in a laudable and substantial way his readiness to assist his neighbour" and fellow coun- trymen in this their patriotic uuderiakiu, ClLc.ter Cuurant. We announced in a former paper that a new Banking Establishment would be opened on the 1st instant, under the firm of Biddulph, Brothers, and Co. We have now the pleasure of informing our readers that this firm commenced business on their premises in Quay-street, yesterday, the 2d instant. This establishment will no doubt be a source of great accommodation to this country generally^ the parties nIgnlY lespectaoie, and connected with a nrst-rate house in Lotidoii.-Carmarthea Journal. We have much pleasure in announcing that a Bank, in connection with the old-established and wealthy firm of Messrs. Wilkins, Bankers, Brecon, has been opened in this town. The liberal system upon which they have been in the habit of doing business at Brecon will, we understand, be adopted here, which will be a source of great accommodation to the inha- bitants of this town and county.—Ibid. The Governor and Company of the Bank of England have determined to establish a branch Bank in this town, for the accommodation of the merchants, traders, and others, aud to discount good bills at the rate of four per ceiit.-Ibid. Thomas Jones, Esq. Attorney, of this town, has been appointed Secretary to the Lord Bishop of St. David's, and also Deputy Registrar for the Diocese.— I b id. Lewis Morris, Esq.

Commission signed by the Lord Lieutenant of the county of Denbigh-Royal Denbigh Rifle Regi- ment of Militia.-Capt. R. M. Wynne, to be Major, vice J. M. Jones, resigned; T.

MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.—On Saturday, the 21st ult. as it boat was crossing the river Wve at Boughrood, near I-Jay, with a man, boy, and two women, the river being very high, the boat was upset, and a poor woman of the name of Mary Phillips was unfortunately drowned, leaving a family of five children to deplore the loss of an affectionate and in- dustrious mother; the body has not yet been found, although her disconsolate husband has used every means for its recovery.—Ibid. An undertaking of some magnitude is now con- templated by the trustees of the Cardigan and New- castle trust,—a new road along the banks of the Tivy, from Henllan bridge to Lampeter, to join a road new formed to IJandoverv. Should it be possible for them to edect this improvement, it would be a great attrac- tion to travellers, from the constant and verging beauties of the scenery, which no part of the Princi pality can excel.-Ibid. SHIPWRECKS — (PEMBRFY, 21th DEC.)—The barque, Brothers, of Liverpool, about 500 tons bur- then, Edward Salmon, master, from Bahia for Liver- pool, laden with cotton and hides, was, we regret to fate, totally wrecked the 19th instant, 011 Cefen feidan Sands, and the crew, 16 in number, were all drowned except the carpenter, who was providentially saved by lashing himself to part of the wreck which was washed on shore. He states that the vessel was dismasted on the 19th instant, oiTthe Western Islands, since which period, to the time of her stranding on this coast, they encountered heavy and constant gales. The greatest part of the cargo was lost and plundered before any persons inclined to protect the pro- perty had arrived cm the spot; and we are sorry to add that several persons residing near the coast were not disposed to render ahy assistance on this oeeasrton, and without the very able exertions of J. H. Rhys, Es Kilmaenllwyd, with the aid of the Custom House ofiiccrs, and Mr. Davies, of Fl ood, with his force, and a few other persons,'no part of the remaining property would have been saved.-Ibid. CARNARYON.-On Tuesday last the body of a man in a very advanced stage of putrefaction, was washed ashore near the patent slip. Nothing was found upon the body whereby the identity could be ascertained, but the remains were naturally conjec- tured to be those of a seaman belonging to one or other of the vessels wrecked in Carnarvon bay during the late gales. An inquest was held, and returned a verdict that the body of the deceased, a person un- known, was found drowned. MELANCHOLY WRECK OFF THE ORMSIIEAD We are sorry to learn that on Tuesday morning last, the sloop Syren, of Pwllheli, laden with corn for Chester, was seen to go down during the tremendous gale off the Great Ormshead, when melancholy to relate, all on board perished. BARMOUTII -011 the 30tli ult. a fine schooner, registered about 100 tons, was launched at Bar- mouth. A great concourse of people assembled on the occasion. The promontory on the eastern side of the ship yard, under Aberanffra House, the seat of the Rev. Frederick Ricketts, was thronged with persons of the highest respectability.
