fftonmoutUgntre. BRITISH IRON COMPANY. The adjourned general meeting of the above com- pany was held at the London Tavern, on Thursday, the 24th inst. John Horsley Palmer, Esq., in the chair. The circular convening the present meeting, and the minutes of the last having been read by the secretary, the Chairman trusted that there would be no neces- sity for trespassing so long upon the time of the pro- prietors as had hitherto been the case; the business they were upon certainly called for great patience and consideration for his part, he was glad these several adjourned meetings had been held, for his sincerest wish was to have the accounts and the management of the directors not merely examined into, but all their motives and proceedings sifted to the very extremity his great object had been to smooth away the difficul- ties with which they had been, and were even now, surrounded, and he could speak as well for the direc- tors as for himself. that their greatest wish had been to keep up the credit of the company there were still elements afloat which, if well managed, might put the affairs of the company upon a better footing. In the course of his speech he took occasion to explain how the firm of which he was a member appeared indebted in the cash account of the report to the amount of 9-25,000 to the company. If the iron account had also been published, it would show that amount balanced by iron orders not then due. It would all be found correctly stated in the books of the company. The benefit of the company had been his only motive, and he trusted that as soon as their affairs were a little settled that an efficient trade directory might be formed, and the business carried on in a proper manner. With respect to the calls, he considered it a moral duty for each proprietor to pay them; the House of Lords had, by what he considered to be a most unjust deci- sion, and which, if other parties were to take the trouble to read over the trial they would think the same, saddled them with payment of a large sum for the Congreaves estate. It* the "united shareholders" had a legal point in their favour, could they with any honour or fairness throw upon him the responsibility of the loss of this lawsuit, when it was by the unaui. mous voice of a full meeting that it was decided to go on with it? Several gentlemen had stated that they had legal advice to justify the steps they had taken in refusing to pay up their calls; lie, for the purpose of satisfying those shareholders who bad paid, had taken the opinion of one that all must allow to he the first in his profession—he alluded to Sir W, Follett, and also of Mr Butt—the latter of whom was the coun- sellor of the company he had asked him to attend this meeting to answer any questions that might be put by the proprietors with respect to the legality of the deeds of the directors, but more particularly as to the lawfulness of the calls. He (the chairman) repeated that what he had done had been solely for the benefit of the proprietors. Let the concern h closed if it was their wish, and he would to the utmost assist them he had certainly felt a little annoyed, when he beard it stated that the loss by Attwood's affair had been occa- sioned by Mr Larpent and himself; the suit wag-carried on by the wish of the proprietors, under good advice, and, having gained a verdict once, with a good pros- pect of another, lie thought the proprietors were fully justified in going on with the action. It would cer- tainly have been better not to have touched law, but have paid Attwood's demand; but it was now no matter if the property were worth it5 or 95,000,000, they were all liable, and the money must be paid. If Mr Gibbs again moves for a committee, let it be one that shall be enabled to sift everything to the bot- tom-let It take no information from the directors, but, if they will, employ proper persons to ascertain the value of their property, so that they might, know how they stand. He hoped that they might come to some arrangement that WOLII(L suit all parties, and con ciuded by stating that every consideration was due to those who could not pay the calls but those who ould, but would not, pay, he thought, even though they acted under legal advice, were bound in honour to provide their share towards clearing off the liabili- ties of the company, On Mr Gibbs rising to bring forward the original motion, which he proposed at the last meeting, he was interrupted by Major Richardson, who affirmed that the original motion, as well as iiis amendment, were withdrawn by mutual consent, on Mr Drainger making his motion for a committee of five from each party, and that the meeting was adjourned to allow the pro- prietors time for consideration, I lon. A long and tedious discussion took pl4ce on this subject, but it was ultimately agreed that illr Cibb's motion should be brought forward, but not without great opposition from Major Richardson, who observed that it would only be taking up the time of the meet- ing, to go again over the same ground that they had done on the former occasion. Mr Wilkinson wiihed that the counsel of the com. pany (Mr Butt) sliowld give his^opinion as to the legality of the calls. Major Richardson thought that Mr Butt had no business in the room, to give any opinion, without the united shareholders" had their counsel present to rebut what he asserted. The Chairman asserted that the directors had aright to liaye tbeir leo;al adviser present. He was entitled as one ,(}f t^e pfneeps of the company. Mr Standish Mott (a barrister) would pot object to hearing Mr Butt, only he knew th^t their legal opi- nions differed, and if Mr Butt gaye his opiriiops he must give his, which would only take up the time of the meeting with a discussion that would prove of no benefit to either party, and, indeed,only provoke angry feelings. He thought they had better proceed to the appointment of the committee, aad see if they could not possibly agree to an arrangement, such as it was supposed they had conceded on a former occasion. It would he the best for all parties if they coifld agree to such a course, for since he was last with them he had been down to the works of the company in Staf- fordshire, and was pren^redj wfyeu the committee was formed, to lay before them suc.h a c^se fts wofjld fully prove to them the necessity of speedily winding up the whole concern, or^of being involved in irreparable ruin. Mr Wilkinson moved that Mr Butt be requested to give his opinion. Mr Hopkinson thought lhat if law were introduced it wonjd occasion much delay in the business of the day, and inconyenien,ce to the proprietors. The Chairman stated, that lie had laId before the counsel the deed and all the directors proceedings, including the calls and issue of promissory notes, and their proceedings against those who were defaulters. All had been pronounced by Sir W. Follett and Mr Butt to be within legal limit. After some further conversation, Mr Wilkinson agreed to withdraw his motion. Mr Gibbs thejj ros, and, after a few observations, proposed the same resolution that lie did at the last meeting-" That nine of the largest shareholders (naming them) should be appointed to investigate the affairs of the company, and report them, with a view to the continuance of the concern, or otherwise," 8tc. There was one thing he must insist upon, which was, that no party should be a member of the committee who had not honourably and justly pail] up his calls. fie had, in the interval between the la.st meeting and this, deeply considered the subject, and was still of the same opinion. The dissentients would, he was sure, delay the decision of the committee, for perhaps twelve months, or even, to gain time, might take the whole party to Staffordshire aud Wales to inspect the works, in order to delay the payment of their calls. As to Mr Attwood he was heartily sick, of liini, and trusted that they should liciir no more about him. The honourable proprietor concluded, by again declaring his conviction,that the business of the committee would never be brought to a satisfactory conclusion, it all the parties were not on an equality with respect to the payment of the calls. Mr Mott was sorry to see such a course persisted in; such a committee could not be said to represent. the whole of the shareholders. The meeting might depend upon it that it would be attended with no beneficial result. The resolution having been seconded, Major Richardson expressed his regret that the meeting had commenced so unpleasantly, and their time occupied by again discussing those points whicti they had before gone into so fully. He could only say with respect to Mr Gibb's committee what he had before advanced, which was, woultl it he fair to appoint a committee of inquiry which would be calculated only to satisfy one half of the proprietors lie in- sisted that those who dissented had the greatest right to be members of it the other parties had stated that they were contented,and consequently did not want it. Those gentlemen who were disposed to adopt a report without reading it, muat feel great confidence in the directors his party had not that confidence, and required an investigation of the accounts and all the deeds of the directors. The honourable proprietor has made use of the expression honourably and justly paid his callsthat he had before, as he thought, sufficiently answered. On his side they contended that the calls were illegal, and, till the contrary was proved, by action at law, they would maintain what they were advised was correct. While this conten- tion was proceeding they were to be shut out of the committee, although he did not hesitate to say that all his party would, if they saw that matters were straight forward, cheerfully come forward to contribute what was due. They were denied the opportunity of doing this by their exclusion from the committee. He would have been glad to see the spirit of conciliation spoken of by the chairman evinced in the nomination of the present committee. But it was not so; it was, on the contrary, an hostile array of one interest against the other. Why was not a proper feeling shown with respect to the weight of both parties- so that they might bring the affairs of the concern to a conclusion, while, as it was evidenced by their own valuations, there was a surplus of £ 400,000? Why did they not take the course best adapted to bring such an un favourable and disastrous business to a conclusion— viz., the appointment of a committee of inquiry pro- perly qualified to do so, and not a packed committee ? The" united shareholders" only wanted justice done them but it appeared they were not likely to receive it upon conciliatory terms. However, they would not he daunted. It was not likely, now that they had spent months in the searching into the affairs, that they would quietly abandon it. On the contrary, he was prepared to say, that although it was only a X5 call that occasioned this present difficulty, they were not likely to give it up even if it should cost them £20. They knew they had a good cause. He moved an amendment to the effect that twenty one shareholders be appointed a committee to investigate and report upon the state of the company's affairs, with a view to its immediate dissolution, &c. An attempt had been made to introduce a learned gentleman forward to vindicate the directors conduct, in making these calls they (the dissentients) did not want to hear the oppo- site parties counsel, as they were satisfied with their own legal advisers, and the other side having paid their calls, were surely assured of their legality what need, then, for counsel's opinion? He knew that every debenture bolder would pay to them, it was only taking the money out of one pocket to put it into the other. He then read a letter from Cant. Sir H. Bailey, which gave him full powers to act in his name, fully coinciding in the opinion of the opposition, and stating it as his opinion that the calls were illegal, as well as the rest of the directors proceedings. The hon proprietor resumed, by stating that they (the dis- sentients) bad been called dishonourable he was sure that no person would call the hon captain dishonour- able, he was too well known for bravery and honour to have such an imputation cast upon him ? he would pledge himself for the equally honourable feelings of the whole of his party, all that they wanted was a fair and impartial committee of inquiry, and then they would do all that was right. Mr Jackson, in seconding the amendment, insisted that the shareholders who had not paid their calls were equally qualified to be on the committee he contended that there had been great extragavance in the manage- ment of the company there were two items that, he thought, were enormous—he alluded to the law expenses, 49-2,000 and £ 87,000. The chairman spoke of a board of trade; had they, then, been so long without any management ?—were Messrs Larpent and Horsley Palmer at the head of the direction as managers, or merely like Gog and Mugogin Guild- hall? If so, this, indeed, required alteration, for if more humble persons had been managers, their ser- vices might have been of more effect, and the liabilities of proprietors ot less extent. Mr Hopkinson, after some remarks repudiating the reflections of dishonesty which had been cast upon the united shareholders," stated, that if they proceeded from squabble to squabble, and from one irritating remark to another, they would he detained all the day, without coming to any ultimate decision. He repre- sented females and officers in her Majesty's service and why did he represent them ? Because they thought that they had, tlnfortllnately, paid money that they were neither honourably or lawfully called upon to pay. If the committee was appointed, and it was a fair committee, composed of both parties, and it asserted that the directors had done their duty, he would, for himself and those whom he represented. bow to its decision but he did not consider Mr Gibb's motion woulcl at all satisfy the proprietors, He strongly objected to the wording of the motion he did not think it sufficiently extensive with respect to the past; it must not only investigate the accounts of last year. but of every preceding year from date of the formation of the company. He, at the last meeting, observed conduct which surprised him-he alluded to the direc- tors voting in a matter which so nearly concerned themselves, and always against any measures proposed by the dissentients for the proper conducting of an inquiry, which, if the directors had acted honestly, they should be the ifrst to wish for. II illegal acts had been committed by the directors, the committee must give a report of them. He had the strongest objec- tions to Mr Gibb's proposed committee, as the mem- bers of it would only be as cats' paws in the hands of the directors. The hon proprietor concluded by going into the accounts, and expatiating on the strange management that they must have had, when it appeared that, when the price of iron was at the lowest, they had the largest profits, and when at the highest price, an actual loss. Mr Gibbs, in reply to some remarks from Major Richardson and Mr Hopkinson, stated, that none of the parties proposed by him for the committee had ever been employed in any capacity by the cqtt'pjjny. Mr Hopkinson made some remarks on Mr H Pal- mer's dealings with the company, expressing his conviction that no person coull] Jeal with himself fairly—in which predicament Mr Palmer stood, being a partner. The Chairman replied that he had used his iufluence in throwing all the foreign orders that he could meet with into the hand* of th,e company he had got them orders lor 10.000 tons of iron per antium, clild, if the proprietors wished, he would withdraw them, and any of the ironmasters would be glad to take them. (Loud cries of No, No ) Mr Everidge (a director) stated that Mr Pititnerlia(i thrown business to the extent of X170,000 into the hands of the company, and never received one shil- ling- for commission. Mr S. Mott stated that, if Major Richardson's amendment were lost, he Cli.piil,(i n:oye another amend- lIJent-" That a committee of ten he appointed, hve from each party." He thought the sooner they closed the concern the better. It appeared that the loss upon its business had been ^55fi,000, and that, out of a capital of t2,000,000, X 1,500,000 had been sunk; he had visited their grand estate at Corngreaves, and he found that which the directors had given £ 300,000 for wai nqt vyqrth as many pence. He then gave an account of his visit to tlie mines, and bjs observations upon the minerals produced, which Jie stated to be but of little value. During*the hon proprietor's speech he 11 u rop ri pp wap Tpiipli ipternjpted by Mr Wilkinson, who was repeatedly called to order by the chairman. A long and angry discussion ensued amidst the greatest con- fusion, which was at last, after many efforts of conci liation by the chairman, ended, by his putting Major Richardson's amendment, which was lost, the dissen- tients not voting in consequence of not having paid their C4118. Major Richardson then put in a protest, and de- manded that it should be read. The chairman was about to comply with his request, but was interrupted by the Solicitor of the company, who advised that the protest should be neither read nor accepted. The greatest confusion ensued, and a long and ngry discussion took place, during which the oiigiual mofion was carried, the number voting for it being36, and against it 3—the dissentients sot yotipg. A ballot was then demanded. The Solicitor explained, that five or more proprie* tors, holding 250 paid up shares, could call for it. Mr Hopkinson stated that he had proxies in his pocket more than sufficient to demand a baliot. I he Solicitor objected to proxies, and affirmed that they had no pnw;;r to call for a ballot; he then read the clause, which, however, seemed to prove that proxies had the power, yet he still insisted on the con- trary. Major Richardson demanded the solicitor's written 11 U Ive, opinion, which he refused to give. At last, after a long conversation, the dissentients procured 245 shares, and the chairman, as the pro- prietors wished to have the ballot made up the right number, by signing his own name, accordingly the ballot was fixed for Wednesday, the 7th July, from twelve to three, at the office of the company, New Broad Street. Mr S. Molt then rose to move his amendment, but was interrupted by loud cries from the directors' party for an "adjournment," which was. amidst the greatest possible confusion, and considerable opposi- tion from Major Richardson's party, carried, and the meeting tumultuously broke up, without auy day being fixed for its future assembling. I u Major Richardson declaring that he would throw the whole into Chancery, and demand a meeting every month, until his party was fairly admitted to a share of the committee of inquiry.—Hlining Journal.

These Sessions were held at Brecon, on Monday and Tuesday last, before the following bench of magistrates: JOliN JONF.S, Esq., Chairman, PEXRY WILLIAMS, Esq., Lord Lieutenant, Colonel Wood William Stretton. Esq. C. Al. R. Morgan, Esq., f.. V. Watkins. E,q. Ruperra Itev Archdeacon Venables, Phillip illiams, Esq. D I). .John Lloyd, Esq. Rev It. Venables J. J. De Winton, Esq. Rev R. W. P.

Rev John Davies, Llan- William Williams, Esq. thetty Thomas Thomas, Esq., Rev Thomas Williams Penycerrig Rev Canon Williams J. Hodekis, Esq. Monday was devoted, according to the new arrangement, to the transaction of county rate business, and the county accounts. The court sat on Tuesday, at eleven o'clock, and a respectable Grand Jury, of which D. Kirby, Esq., of Battle, was foreman, having been sworn, and the pro- clamation against vice and profaneness having been read, the Chairman proceeded to charge the Grand Jur). He said that the conrt felt obliged to the gentle- men of the jury for their punctual attendance on the present occasion. The importance of punctuality in a court of justice was so obvioun, that it was quite unnecessary for him to urge it upon their at. tention, though there hud been much misconception in the county with regard to attendance. It was the proper rule that gentlemen not in the com- mission of the peace should be summoned on the grand jury of this court, while magistrates were required to serve at assizes; and this court had now become one of great importance, at which crimes liable to serious punishrtienti4 were tried, it was of course essential that gentlemen of efficiency should attend: the court, therefore, felt obliged to the Sheriff and Under Sheriff for the effort they had made on the present occasion to produce so desirable a result, and though the Court would not now inflict fines for non-attendance, he must say that they would be imposed in future. lie was sorry to inform them that the county gaol cnnli, nued very full: but he was gratified to find lhat there were only two prisoners for trial at these Sessions, and as yet only two for trial at the Assizes. The canes in the calendar were not of a nature to render any observations necessary. One was a case of rubbery from the per-,on, ati(i the only unusual point was that the property had been detached from the person the other was a charge of stealing traces a crime which affected agricultural property, which necessarily was much exposed. There two indictments besides, one of which was a case of nuisance, and, as it was of 110 unusual character, and, as many of the gentlemen he was addressing had been accustomed to the duties of grand jurors, it would not be necessary for him to detain them with any remarks. The other was of a morc novel nature, and arose under the provisions of the recent Highway Act. That act (for the purpose of preventing unnecessary expense) had given the magistrates a power of deciding summarily, its the case of roads out of repair, and where the party charged with the hurdeu of the repair denied tlie liability, it set forth a manner of proceeding by indictment in this court, for the purpose of deciding the fact. This was the first case that had been brought before this court and if they felt any difficulty, the bench would be happy to assist them. Before dismissing them to their labours, he would just mention the alteration that had taken place; by that alteration Monday had been made the first day of sessions. By the old system of retiriiiar at two o'clock for the transaction of county business, great delay had frequently occurred, and Ihe course of business had been much interfered with. The magistrates had found yesterday that by meeting at the hour of one o'clock, they had been enabled to get through tlie whole ot the county accounts in two or three hours ill a lIIore satisfactory manner than before, and they would, he hoped, be enabled to- day 10 accomplish the criminal and other cases by five o'clock in the afternoon, lie would just mention that the magistrates, keeping in view the expense which must at some future time be necessarily incurred by the erection of a new gaol, had hitherto been as far as possible making provision for it, and consequently had found a three halfpenny rate necessary btitt anxious to make ttie rates as light as possible, they had found from the statement of accounts pro- duced, that a rate of one penny would be sufficient. He would not further detain them, but trusted they would send iu the first bill found. In ananpeal, Hilton v. Llalt.!Iytii.er, Mr G. A. A. Oavies moved for leave to discharge the order, as I far as regarded the hamlet of Bitton. 'I'lie le,iriie(i gentleman said he acted by consent of the parties, the papers having passed through the post office into the hands of the overseers of Bitlou instead of the hamlet of Qverlands, and the appeal having been entered by them while of opinion that the removal was intended to them. The court adjourned the ujipeal to next Sessions, in order that the officers of Overland might be con- sulted. liirhaid JValkins was ch-irged with stealing a pair of iron triicf-m, itic property of Edwd.

COMPRESSED AIR LOCO-,IOTIVES.-We last week gave an account of a French project for driving loco- motives Oil railways and common roads, by means of resprvoirs of compressed air. We have been since informed by a friend that the same thing has been tried with locomotives on common roads, and failed from a singular but very natural circumstance. Com- pressed airs if allowed to expand absorb froin nil the surrounding bodies a quantity of heat, in proportion to their previous compression. This has been found to act so powerfully on the machinery as to freeze and destroy all the lubricating materials, and of course, considerably to interfere with the perform- ance, wear and tear, and efficient properties of the locomotives.-Railway Magazine. LONDON AND BRIGHTON RAILWAY.— It was generally reported and expected that the railway would open to Hayward's Heath, J2 miles from Brighton, on Monday, the 28th inst.; indeed the contracts for coke, &c- were advertised, with the proviso that portions should be delivered by Satur- day next. The opening is now deferred, until the h 28th of July, by which time it is expected the whole liue will be finished. Clayton tunnel, the longest and only one remaining unfinished, will be keyed in on Monday next. STEAM COMMUNICATION WIrH IRELAND.—The advantages derivable from the application of steam may be judged from the fol lowiii rr. Having occasion to visit Dublin, and to transact business at Li verpool, we left Loudon on the morning of the 18th i list., at six o'clock, arrived at Liverpool at a quarter before four, and remained there upwards of three hours; left by steamer for Kingstown at half-past seven, and arrived in Dublin about seven on Satutday morning. Having made a delay there of ten hours, we started on our return by railway to Kingstown at five o'clock on Saturday afternoon, and arrived at Liverpool at a quarter before eight on the morning of the 20th; proceeded onwards to London, and completed the joiirney by a quarter past seven in the evening of that day-thus traversing over a space of 680 miles in sisty-one hours, of which thirteen hours were devoted to business, making the actual time of tra. veiling forty-eight hours, or, on an average, upwards of fourteen miles per hour. The importance and value to be attached to a facility of communication, such as this present- is iticuiculabit-, as alfectin our commercial interests, and the prospeiity of Ireland, while we look forward to the construction of the Irish railways as a further means of developing the resources of the Sister country.—3lining Journal. EXTRAORDINARY INGENUITY.—We noticed in a paragraph, under this head, a short time since. a very clever little piece of mechanism-a model steam engine, then to be seen in a shopwindow opposite the Eastern Institution, Commercial Road East. Stimulated by the approbation bestowed on him by several eminent practical engineers, who examined his first model, the inventor (a watch maker) has attempted, and indeed succeeded in producing an engine of muoh smaller dimensions than the one previously noticed; and in the same window may now be seen one of the most extraor- dinary productions of modern times, viz., a working model steam engine, the weight of which, including engine, boiler, safety valves, fly wheel, stop cocks, feed pipes, and all the other ct ceteras, does not exceed three pennyweights. The cylinder is Jess than the 16th of an inch in diameter, and it has been calculated that the fly wheel makes upwards of 500 revolutions in a minute.-Tiias.
GLAMORGANSHIRE MIDSUMMER QUARTER SESSIONS, 1841. I These Sessions were held at Neath, on Tuesday last. The following magistrates were preterit: The MARQUESS OF BUTE, Custos Kotulorum. Lord Viscount Adare George R. Morgan, Esq. J. D. lieryington, Esq I Bart J. E. Bicheno, Esq J. Bruce Pryce, i'sq James Coles. Clerk R, F. Hickards, Esq L. Llewelyn Dillwvn, Esq Chas. H. Smith, Esq Richd. Franklen, Esq J. ff. H. Spencer, Esq Fred. Fredricks, Esq Thos. Stacey, Clerk Henry J. Grant, Esq I C. R. M. Talbot, Esq John Hewitt, Esq Henry Thomas, Esq 11. H. Jenkins, Esq Sir George Tyler Robert O. Jones, Esq I J. M. Traherne, Clerk Robert Knight, Clerk N. Edwards Vaughan, Esq E. H. Lee, Esq ¡ J. H. Vivian, Esq J. Dillwvn Llewelyn, Esq W. Williams (Aberper- Griffith Llewelyn, Esq gwm) Esq Henry Lucas, Esq I Evan Williams, Esq Richard Morgan, Esq At these sessions, the Marquess of Bute and Sir George Tyler qualified. Mr Niclioll, the Chairman of the Sessions, being unfortunately absent on account, as we under- stood, of Mrs Nicholl's health, The Marquess of Bute said,—Gentlemen, some years ago, 1 found myself in a position similar to the present—acting as your Chairman. It was an occasion to which I am sure you will look back, with melancholy feeling. 1 allude to the time when our late excellent friend, Mr Thomas, of Sully, was prevented by illness from attending. Since then, Mr Dillwyn was so kind as to act as chair- man throughout the whole of the business; and I am sure, if I ask him, he will readily do so again. I am anxious to obtain the consent of my brother magistrates present to my taking this step. It will be more agreeable to my feelings every way. May I have the honour of proposing that Mr Dillwyn do take the chair throughout the business? J. B. Pryce, Esq—Gentlemen, I beg to second the Marquess of Bute's motion. [It was unanimously carried. Mr Dillwyn ac- cordingly took the chair.") Mr Dillwyn said he was requested by MrNicholl to apologise for his absence. He (Mr D.) thanked them for the honour they had done him. He would do his best, and he trusted he should be favoured, as on former occasions, with the assistance of the Clerk of the Peace. THE GRAND JURY. Mr JAMES FEAR, Foreman. Mr J. S. Fear Mr Jacob Moseley Mr John Morgan Mr William Redwood Mr llees Morganj Mr Thomas Eustace Mr Benjamin Rice Mr David Arthur Mr Edward Thomas Mr John Grainger Mr Philip Walters Mr Morgan Llewellyn Mr William Watson I Mr John Peters Mr John William* Mr Joseph Hayward Mr William Morris Mr William Thos. Morgan Mr David Morris Mr Lionel Brough After the proclamation against vice had been read, and the usual formalities had been gone through, the chairman, Lewis Weston Dil-lvyn, Esq., briefly addressed the jury :-He said he had gone through the depositions with care; the cases generally were of a trifling description, and were so plain that they did not require any remarks from him. There were four prisoners charged with steal ing'coal—a crime,which he very much feared was on the increase; he greatly regretted the repeal of the Merthyr Act, as it was only by strictly enrorcing the provisions of that act they could hope to check the evil. He had been informed that the practice of stealing coal was so great that children were actually trained up to it. He hoped that some steps would soon be taken to meet the urgency of the case. The parish of Lalegton, appellants, v. the parish of Ynisawdre Mr Morgan, of Bridgend, moved to quash the order of removal with costs. This was opposed by Mr Lewis, of Bridgend. In the course of a conver- sation that ensued it came out that the parishioners had agreed on both sides to refer the case to Mr Bicheno, and to abide by his decision. The order was quashed, with costs up to the time of reference. The court then adjourned for the transaction of the county business. The buzz of conversation was so great that we could not hear any thing distinctly until the Mar- quess of Bute rose to address the meeting. We believe the usual routine of business was previously despatched. The Marquess of Bute very briefly addressed the meeting in proposing his motion respecting the rural police. He said his proposition was the same as that made by him at the laltt Quarter Sessions with one exception. An alteration had been made in the Merthyr District- It was intended that 13 constables should be appointed for Merthyr, and two for Aberdare, in lieu of 12 for Merthyr, and three for Aberdare as proposed last Sessions. In both cases the total number for the Merthyr Dis- trict would remain the same, i.e., fifteen. With that alteration he hoped the magistrates would allolV him to prQPoe cite resolution. "That it is expedient to form a body of constables for this county, to be under the direction of one chief con- stable for the whole county; but dividing the county into four special districts, with one superin- tendent of the constables in each. The number of constables in each district to be allotted to parti- cular portions of country within the district, ac- cording to the circumstances of each portion, and to be paid for by each portion according to its own number of constables. This arrangement not to include the towns of Cardiff, Swansea, or Neath." Mr Talbot seconded the motion. It was then put to the meeting, when there appeared, For the motion 27 Againstit. f Majority -20 The details were afterwards agreed to. The whole of the Rural Police"question having been disposed of, the Rev. Robert Knight moved a vote of thanks to the Lord Lientenant for the zeal he had manifested in conducting this great object. Which having been briefly seconded by Mr J. B. Prvce, was carried by acclamation. The Lord Lieutenant briefly returned thanks. The court then resumed for the trial of prisoners. John Griffith, aged 22, oollier, and Morgan Hop- liin. collier, charged with stealing a copper tea kettle, and two ale glasses, the property of Isaac Roberts, of Cardiff. The prisoners pleaded not guilty. Elizabeth Morgan examined by Mr Richards —I live with Isaac Roberts, publican, of Cardiff, in this county; in the beginning of April last, on a Tues- day, the fith of April I saw the two prisoners at the Patriot about dinner time; they were there calling for a pint of beer; they were there about three quarters of an hour; they were in the kitchen; after they left the house I missed some articles from the kitchen; a silverspoon, tea kettle and glasses I had seen them there that morning; the glasses were kept on a shelf in the kitchen the tea kettle was kept on another shelf; the spoon was in the tea caddy; the tea caddy was not ipissing. (Thos. Davies. constable, produced the articles).. J know one of these glasses by a mark; I live at Isaac Roberts' six months, and was in the,habit of using it daily; it is worth two pence; this tea kettle is Isaac Roberts's property; it is the tea kettle I missed that day it is worth eight shillings. Mr Meyrick addressed the jury, strongly contend- ing that the evidence WfU not sufficient to convict the prisoners. Verdict—Not Guilty. Morgan Hopkin was next tried for stealing a tea caddy from the dwelling house of John Barnes. Verdict-Gitilty. Sentence—Four months' imprisonment in Swansea House of Correction the last week of first month, and the last week of his imprisonment to be passed in solitary confinement. Air E. P. Richards conducted the prosecution; Mr Meyrick defended the prisoners.

Richard Florence, aged 19, labourer,charged with stealing two silk handkerchiefs the property of Mr George Bird, of Cardiff. Mr Bird examined by Mr Richarrls-T am a mercer residing at Cardiff, in this county I remem- ber the prisoner at my shop on the Gth of April, between six and seven in the eveniag, a female came with him; they came there to purchase a gown and other articles; I shewed them some prints and sundry articles; I shewed them some ,ilk handkerchiefs; before I shewed the handker- chiefs the prisoner had purchased a gown and paid for it; I gave the price of the handkerchiefs pri- soner said "do you think I am a d-d fool to give you 4s. Cd. for these handkerchiefs J*' and then he threw them at me I stooped to picii them up, and ) think it was then he put the articles in his pocket I cut off three handkerchiefs and put them with other goods purchased by the prisoner; I suspected there were some of the articles missing from the counter; the prisoner paid me £2 6s. 7d.; after lie had paid me, I said to him," Now give me back the goods you have in your possession, which you have not paid me for He said, Do you think I'am a thien" I said, "One of you has taken some of my articles. The prisoner denied having them; I de- clined searching them; the female said to the prisoner, "Perhaps you put something into your pocket put your hand in and feel and then she ran out of the shop before the woman left, he had put his hand into his pocket, and pulled out two silk handkerchiefs; they were given to the policeman (the handkerchiefs produced by the policeman); I did not sell him these handkerchiefs; these are the goods I missed from the counter; 1 am positive these are my handkerchiefs; the prisoner said he did not know how they got into his pocket. (The depositions taken before the committing magistrates ,.vas now ptit in. The prisoner had stated that lie did not know how the handkerchiefs came into his pocket.) Verdict-Guilty.

TilE COIC TRADI5. At Mark Latip, during the early part of thN week, fair supplies of wheat came to hand fiom Essex and Suffolk, but from Kent the quantity offering was more limited. There was a less attendance of buyers than usual, and sales were far from brisk. The dull state of Ihe flour trade, occasioned partly by The quantity of ship marks Oil sale, and the reduction of 2s per sack, to which the millers were obliged to submit for best town made, rendered them exceedingly calltious in their purchases, and a reduction of about Is per quarter was very generally acccded to for Euglish wheat. The sales ot Foreign wheat continue slow, though the quantity of free parce's is much reduced, and the demand from the country lately has been limited. Barley has recently met a much improved demand, having very little English at market, and of Foreign there are at present only a few free parcels offering. The high duty now existing prevents the release of any portion of what is here, nnd prices are consequently from J s to 2 per quarter dearer. The supplies of English beans are now materially falling off, hut having so large a pro- portion of Mediterranean supplies at market, we are not enabled to report any improvement in prices. Scarcely any Maple or Gtey pease are received, and higher rates are readily obtained for the few that are to he met with. White pease meet a slow demand, and we have little or no change in prices. With oats we continue we'l supplied from Ireland, but have had very few shipments from Scotland lately, and although the demand is far from active, the prices of good fresh corn are steadily supported. Mall, being in very limited supply, meets a better sale, nt rather improved prices. The competition existing in the flour trade, has caused prices to have a downward tendency, but the reduction in wheat has not been to a similar extent. —Juhn Bull.
BOUQUITS IN BALL ROOMS.—At a lecture at the Royal Institution on Friday week, the fact was stated that flowers, during the day, gave out oxygengas.whic)) supports life, and that during the night they emitted caibonio acid gas, one of the most deleterious and poisonous gases known. The headaches, and other aches usually following balls, &c., where it is nnv the fashion for the ladies to display large bouquets, may be caused by the gas emitted. THE BUEEII OF SALMON—For some years Sir Francis Mackenzie, of Gairloch, Bart., has been anxious to prevent that total d slruction of the salmon race which has been so threatening, and which, in many cases, has actually been accom- plished but it is only this season that he has discovered a satisfactory remedy for ibis evil, and proved that the salmon can be propagated to any extent artificially, and pro'ected from the natural enemies of their youth, and easily as at a smaller expense, than is required for raising a head of pheasants or other game. Sir Fiancis has at this moment a large school of young salmon fry, hatched during spring in a pool prepared for the purpose, and ready, at the proper age, lo inhabit their native river, the Kwe, from which the parent fish were taken. They are now one and a half or two inches long, and decidedly p,lr-thus confirming what ha. so of en been asserted, and on a small scale proved by Mr Sbsw, of Di-utitlittit-ig. to whom belongs the credit of first suggesting a way of piopagat;ng out- royal fish, though the possibility of linillg it to any extent that cou'd really prove valu-ible was always denied. Sir F, allci.. Mackenzie his, however, by perseverance ami zeal in the cause, overcome the difficulty, and it is hoped, will soon make known to the public the details of his interes ing and valuable discovery.— Inverness Courier. ASS\M TEA. 1 have examined specimen,4 of H >wqua and Assmn teas, as imported by Captain Pidding. Chemically considered, those are genuine iii"i cotilaiti, ui near it., iii,,iy bf,, file -aine relative quantities of gillie acid and tannin. It has struck me as peculiar, in examining the leaves of the Assam tea, that tltcir breadth is so considerable -n(-ii-ly double that of Thea Itohea, and in con- sistence very much thinner. If lias often occurred to me as matter of surprise, that the green and black teas (Thea viridis and Thea Bohea) should have ever confounded for you are aware that some persons have maintained that all the varieties of teas were obtained from one and the same plant relative stages of maturity, and other accidental circumstances, constituting the entire difference. Irrespective of colour — and 1 am tully aware of the necessity of caution here (nimium ne crede coloi-i) -the form and structure of the le,if are ce tainly sufficient to constitute a specific difference. The relitive hardiness of the-e species must not be overlooked ihe Thea viridis has survived, with rile, severe winters, sub dio while the Thea Bohea has been cut ofl". TI e late Colonel Mark Wilk*, d stinguished as the historian of the Mysore country, informed me that the black tea was a'to,Ilier unknown in (Chinese Tartary; and I have been told of a nightingale having bnitt her nest among the branches of II Thea viridis cul tivated in the open air ill Hampshire.
