MONMOUTHSHIRE. MONMOUTH.—The "Reformers" of Monmouth had an eighteen-penny ordinary, on Tuesday last, at the Bell, in that town, to celebrate their glorious triumph, in the confirmed election of Mr Hall, their sitting member. The president upon the occasion was Mr J. G. George, attorney-at-law. The Rev. J. H. Thomas, at a recent meeting at Monmouth, in behalf of the Loudon Hibernian So- ciety, for promoting Scriptural education in Ireland, observed, that religious Popery was evidently on the decline, but that political Popery was on the increase. This remark may be carried further. Religious dissent has ceased to increase, and in the present im- proving state of the Church may be expected to decline. But political dissent, which is a very dif- ferent thing, is unhappily increasing, and its growth betokens no good to religion in any shape. The Clergy are unable te contend against it, since it does not meet them on the proper ground. All they can do is to prevent the spreading of religious dissent, by their unremitting exertions, and the consistency of their lives. The rest must be left in the hand of Providence. -From a Correspondent. ClIEPSTOW,-At our cattle fair on the 19th of June, live stock of every description experienced a trifling advance in price, to that obtained at most pre- vious fairs in the neighbourhood but in consequence of a false report having been circulated, that the callIe and wool fairs would be hetd on the same day (Saturday the 20th,) a vast number of persons did not bring their stock to market, and a great. many buyers did not attend. It is a fair that has always been held, for the last thirty years, invariably on the Friday in Whitsun Keek, aud is what is called one of the standard fairs of the town for the sale of live stock. Our wool fair, on the 20th, was tolerably well attended with stock and buyers. A considerable quantity was sold on that day, and a good deal more on the following. Monday. Last year's prices were fully maintained, and a few in advance. The average tuay be quoted at Is. (id. per pound; for fine teg wool Is 8d. was asked. On Monday, the 22d of June, an inquest was held at Mounton, near ChepstoW, before B. M. Brad- ford, Esq. coroner, on view of the body of T. Collins, who met his death by a brick wall falling on him on Wednesday last, Verdict-Accidental death. On Thursday evening, as a car with two ladies in it was going to Tintern Abbey, just below the Moss Cottage, the horse shied at something and leaped over the wall down the rock, but fortunately without doing much mischief; the lad'es were slightly in- jured, and the driver very little the horse had one knee cut open.
