SWANSEA,—The Britannia, 120 guns, Captain George Mansel, put into Plymouth, on the 26th ult., from the Mediterranean, and will be paid off at Portsmouth. We have great pleasure In itiViog publicity to the following complimentary address to Herbert Jones, Esq., Barrister at Law, who has lately returned to this country, where, we trust, he will receive that redress which, we are assured from various respecta- ble sources, his case so loudly demands Extract from the Colonial Magazine, October 1841. Page 228. VAN Dt EVEN'S LAND. The removal of Mr. Herbert Jones, as Solicitor- General, appears to have excited a strong feeling in the colony. We have only time this month to give an extract from the Tasmanian Weekly Dispatch of the 9th of April last, but we shall recur to the subject in our next number. We give, below, the* letter addressed to Mr' Jones, requesting him, as able adyoc^te, to recon- sider. hiq determination to leave the colony, and his reply, The letter is signed by more than eighty in. dividuals of influence and respectability, and amongst the names we observe many who are decidedly op- posed to each other in what are called colonial politics." Hobart Town, 16th March, 1841. Sir,—We have heard with much regret that you intend to leave the polony. In addressing you, we consider it prudent to ab. stain from any expression of our sentiments on the misunderstanding between yourself and the Govern- ment; but we cannot suffer you to depart without making some effort in dissuading you to the contrary. 1, It would he useless, as it woqld be disingenuous, to attempt disguising the fact. that our anxiety to retain you iu the colony arises principally from a re- gard to our own individual interest, and that of the community ill which we live. Jn appreciating the value of your professional knowledge, and full reliance on your unbiassed opinion and advice, we respectfully and earnestly entreat, that. you will re-consider the resolution you have taken in leaving the colony, where we are certain success awaits your tqleuf. With pyery respect, We are, Sir, Your most obedicut Servants. To Herbert Jones, Esq. &c., &c., &c, Hobart Town, 31st March, 1841. I. Gantlemen,- Allo%v me to offer you my sincere tlnnks for your spontaneous expression ot regret at my ap- proaching departure; and whilst so numerous a body of the most respectable and affluent merchants and gentlemen of the colony (with the majority of whom I have not even the pleasureiof a personal ac- quaintance,) frankly avow ilint you seek to retain me among you, from a regard to your own individual interest, and that of the community in which you live," 1 fill(1 myself placed in so pramlli position, that I trust I may, without vanity, acknowledge that I feel highly honoured and gratified by the estimation in which you hold my professional knowledge" and "talent," and by the "full reliaucc" for your re- pose in me. I' t uufeignedly deplore that I cannot comply with your flattering solicitation; for conscious, as I am, that all the persecution and annoyances I have suf- fered, have been occasioned by my earnest endeavours to support, by the uniform expression of my un- biassed opinion and advicI," the real honour and interests of the Crown in this colony. I feel that the injuries which have been inflicted upon me can be adequately redressed only by a personal appeal to the jusiiop qf my beloved Sovereign. V Do me the favour to accept my best wishes that health, happiness, and prosperity may attend each of you and permit me to assure you, that if any ex- ertions of mine can be beneficiallyjem/iloyed elsewhere in promoting the latter, it will always afford me sincere pleasure to exercise in your behalf the humble powers which you sq favourably appreciate, and which, during my residence in Van Diemen's Land. have secured to me your undeviating and gratifying support. « I have the honour to remain, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obedient Servant, "HERBEllT G. JONES." To Thoirns Yardley Lowes, Esq., and the other gentlemen who signed the address."

CORONER'S INQUESTS. [before WM. DAVIES, Esq., Coroner.] On Monday last, an inquest was held at the New Inn, Merthyr, on view of the body of Charlotte u about five years. The deceased was the daughter of Richard Wyatt, a travelling cheese- man. and came to her death in consequence of her clothes taking fire, whilst in the act of warming her hands, during the temporary absence of her grand- mother. Her parents were both in another part of the country, pursuing their ordinary avocation.— Verdict "Accidental death from burning." Immediately after the foregoing, and at the same house, an inquest was held on view of the body of Michael M'Keveregan, a hawker, who had been missing for the last six weeks. From the evidence it appeared that the deceased was last seen, on the night of Monday, September 27, apparently in a state ef intoxication, near the Parliament Lock, Merthyr, picking sticks out of the water. It was between eleven and twelve o'clock when deceased was first observed going towards the water, by two men whose duty it is to regulate the flood gates for the water. In about an hour after finding deceased did not return, one of the men went to look for him, but found him missing. It is presumed that in trying to reach the sticks as they floated past him, deceased overbalanced himself and was carried away by the stream, there being a very heavy flood at the time. His body was found, near Mr. Purchase's floating on the water, about seven o'clock on Saturday night last.—Verdict—" Found drowned." Great dissatisfaction was expressed on Monday evening, by the coroner and the jury, who had walked up to the burial ground at Twynyrodin, where deceased had been interred, at the non-attendance of the grave-digger, to open the grave. We know not with whom the fault lay but we do know that, after sending messengers to that functionary, as well as to the clerk, and waiting a considerable time, the coroner was under the necessity of employing two workmen, to perform that office. We hope we shall not have occasion to notice a recurrence of such neglectful conduct. ÂBERPARE POLICE. [Before G. R. MORGAN, Esquire.] Saturday, OcL 30. Wilham Dovey and William Smith, were chavged with stealing a quantity of beef, the property of Mr. William Morgan, of the Werfa, from a barn at Pantycerddinen, in the above parish, on the night of Friday last. Mr. William Morgan, jun., who went to fetch the beet home, saw it quite safe on a bench in the barn at six o'clock. The door was shut on the latch. He afterwards went into a house, and on his return about eight o'clock, be found the door of the barn open and two pieces of his meat missing. He immediately ipformed Walter, the constable, of the robbery, who went in search of the thieves. The two prisoners were seen near the Cwmbach Col'iery, on the following morning, the prisoner Dovey having two bundles under his arm. and the other prisoner with something under his frock. They were after- wards seen walking on the canal bank towards the village, and the constable, in company with another Eeraon, went after them, but finding they had on undies, he allowed them to go on their way.. Upon further inquiries, however, he ascertained that they had previously been IIce crryig bundles, and upon making a search lie found two bundles in the ditch by the path they had gone along; another bundle was afterwards found in the ditch by two other persons. A witness swore that one of the bundles was exactly the same gort of bundle that he saw with the prisoner Dovey- The prisoners were pursued up the hill towards Merthyr, and brought back. They both denied having bundles. They were, however, committed to take their trials at the next Quarter Sessions. Monday, November 1st [Before G. R. MORGAS and W. THOMAS, Esqrs.] George Smith, was charged with obtaining goods to the amount of 5s. 6d., under false pretences, from the shop of Mr. William Todd, in the villiage of Aberdare. The evidence being conclusive, and the prisoner having nothing to say in his defence, was committed to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions, At the Carmarthen assizes in 1742, a girl only eight years old was tried for the murder of a brother and sistor,ithe one six, the other four years of age, and acquitted. It appeared that the three children, who lived in a cottage not far from the seat had been frightened with stories of the cruelty of the Spaniards, and the nanger of their landing upon that coast. These children having been one day left alone, when there happened to arise a violent thunder stom, became so terrified as to imagine the Spaniards were coming. and the eldest to avoid falling into their hands, took up a hedging bill in order to destroy herself, which the two younger children observing, cried out re- peatedly, Pray, sister, kill us first," upon which she actually dispatched them. She afterwards desperately wounded herself, but not having strength, or perhaps cqurage enough, after feeling such pain, to complete her design that way, she ran out of the house to a river near it and was going to throw herself in, but was prevented by some, casual passenger, to whom she said, in great terror, that she was going to drown herself for fear of the Spaniards, and that she had killed her brother and sister for the same reason.
ETON COLLEGE; The Duke of Buckingham has just made a present of a splendid bust of the late Lord Grenville, executed by Nollekens, to Eton College. His Grace has signi- fied to the provost his earnest request that the bust may be placed in the upper school; and we believe here is no doubt that the wish of his Grace will be orthwith complied with. Lord Canning has also presented the college with a bust of his father, which is likewise to be placed in the upper school; and Lord Guildford has made a present of a bust of his uncle-the minister, John North. We understand it is very probable that this number of busts of "Eton great men" is likely to be very ma. terially increased. Certainly, if the busts of all the distinguished men who have been educated at Eton were placed in the upper school, a noble and most gratifying collection would be formed. Almost all the prime ministers of the last century were "Eton men." Sir Robert Walpole and Lord Bolingbroke, commenced their animosities, as boys, together, at Eton, where, it is reported they had more than one good stand-up fight-" Lord ichatham, Lord North, and Charles J,imes Fox were all distinguished as scholars at this ancient seat of learning. If, in the Tprevious century, Eton did not produce 80 many great names, the reason is obviously to be found in the fact that the system of public education was not then so general as it afterwards became yet in the 17th century Eton can refer to the great names of Bishop Pearson and the poet Waller, Fielding, the poet Gray, the scholar Porson, and Bishop Sherlock, were also 11 Eton men." At a later period Eton can boast of having produced the great Duke of Wellington, Mr. Canning, L'ord Wellesley, Lord Grenville, Lord Grey, and that fine scholar apd philosophical writer, Mr. Hallam. If the busts of all these distinguished men were placed in the upper school they would undoubtedly form a most spUadid and highly interesting cyllettion.

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. The Advertisement of Mr- Davis was printed off when his Letter arrived. MARIANNE in our next. A FRI z-i i)-(Cowbridqe.)- We shall be glad to have the infonttation alluded to.
ONE of the remedies suggested for the present distress in certain districts is Emigration. It is assumed, because the pressure through various causes and temptations, is unequal, that the population is redundant. Appalling statements have been made, and painful pictures drawn, of the sufferings and privations of men, women, and children, at Leeds, Manchester, Paisley, and other i places, and we have no doubt that throughout England and Wales, wherever human beings have been drawn together, crowded in masses to minister to the wants of manufacturers, and dis- carded, either through some great improvement in machinery, or a failure in the demand for the article manufactured, there distress must exist to an extent which human aid can scarcely remedy. It is our belief then that unequal pressure, and not a redundant population, is the source of the evil, and that any system of cpmpulsory emigra- tion would be tyrannical, inhumat., And unchristian. Before political economists issue their panacea for a surplus population, let them inform us what is the amount in acres of the uncultivated land of Great Britain—the thousands —the millions of acres yet unredeemed by hmpan industry, and capable of being converted by that industry into a fertile soil. If, as it has been asserted, we are dependent at present for a certain supply of foreign corn, what will be our necessi- ties when ten years have added three, some say four, millions to our population. Be friiitfui, and multiply, and replenish the earth," the words did not stop there, and subdue it," was added, that the primeval curse might be accomplished, and that by the sweat of his brow man should eat his bread- Who can look upon the vast extent of waste and bairerj moorlands, even in the north of England, and entertain for a moment the notion of a redundant population. It has been stated that in the counties of Westmoreland and Cumberland only, half a millipn of acres exist in a wild primitive state, and that the hand of man has never been applied to recover the smallest portion for beneficial purposes. There is no more certain return for capital, than by its right and judicious application to the soil. But the msmi effects of engaging labourers in this profitable and m&st healthful 1:> of all occupations is beyond all price,—and oiie of Her Majesty's Chaplains, the Rev. Baptist Noel, instead of in- flaming the popular passions by his demand for the repeal of the existing Corn Laws, and gravely enunciating as a solemn truth the great fallacy that "nearly all the lands which would iepay cultivation were already cultivatedinstead of thus misapplying his time and talents (we do not question his sincerity) had he directed his atten- tion to the more christian and practicable scheme, he would have better deserved the honor which the expiring Whig administration conferred upon zll him. The improvements in Agriculture within these few years have been great, but the giant is still but an infant, and the management of soils through the medium of Agricultural Chemistry is a secret Ifnown but to the very few. We may have a word to say upon this subject on another occasion, our present object is to contend, and to contend strenuously for relieving the pressure in the manufacturing districts by home civilization. See what British spades and stout hearts and hands have done in the way of rail roads. These miracles, it will be said, have bsen effected by labourers trained to agricultural employments,— this may be true—but spade in the hands of weavers, where the opportunity for its use has been afforded them, has made the wilderness to blossom as the rose. We have been led to offer the foregoing brief remarks, having read in the Court Circular of certain interviews between a New Zealand Agent, a Paisley Depute, and Lord Stanley, the Colonial Secretary, an ominous conr junction We will conclude for the present with a brief account of what was performed by the ancestor of another Secretary, Sir James Graham —a fact which we give on the authority of Dr. Granyille. To Sir James Graham the patrimony of Netherby would not have descended in its actual highly-flourishing state, nor with its present magnificent villa, resting on a Roman station, had his ancestor, the Rev. Dr. Graham, "been content with simply planting forests for H the sake of their timber, in the extensive tracts of waste and bare lands which formed part of "his territorial property, instead of raising the "latter by tillage into a rich, fertile, and in many "parts beautiful demesne. That demesne at present exhibits everywhere the marks of pros- sperity, civilization, and religion, in its extensive corn mills and corn fields, its free grammar schools, and neat places of worship. By such rrlearis, and by such results, the worthy divine is known to have quintupled the value of his estates." Yes, these arc imperial acts, and worthy kings, and the same success would attend the patriotic efforts of the present proprietors of such soils, and give the cheapest and the sweetest bread to a large amount of the starving and unemployed (miscalled redundant) population.
THE acquittal of M'Leod, and the restoration of Grogan, have dissipated for the present the appre- hensions of a war with our Transatlantic brethren. The former has suffered in his person a grievous wrong-and his trial and imprisonment have in- flicted a national stain on both countries.—On the Republic that it was unable to controul the blood- thirstiness of one of its component states, on Great Britain that the destruction of the piratical steam vessel was not at once adopted as its own act, and that the immediate liberation of the Englishman was not insisted on, It now perhaps only remains to make such reparation to this injured gentleman as we can—his courage and manly bearing throughout these trying scenes have been worthy of the country to which he be- longs, and highly merit some public testimonial. It is our firm conviction that in no other civilised country than America could such a gross act of injustice have been perpetrated, as the capture, imprisonment, and trial of M'Leod. All this is the genuine fruit of a Republican government unable to controul the popular will. Elected by the popular voice, it is at the mercy of the power which called it into life. The trial of M'Leod was not the act of the government, but that of the people in opposition to the government, who thus placed in imminent peril the peace of the two countries. The death of M'Leod, says an en- lightened contemporary, would be a murder, and that murder would produce a war. The conse- quence would be inevitable, and would also be instant. Popular as Sir Robert Peel's ministry is, it would instantly lose its popularity if it shrunk from avenging the blood of M'Leod. Yet this is the simple and sole work of Republicanism. A populace in their recklessness demand what a government in its weakness dares not refuse, and thus are two countries brought to the verge of a collision which may cost thousands of lives.
THE Annual Meetings of tle COWBRIDGE DISTRICT COMMITTEES, in connection with the Parent Societies, for Promoting Christian Knowledge," and that for the f Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts," both meetings under the Presidency of the Chancellor of the Diocese, on the 27th ult., demand a few words from us of hearty commendation. In the first place we congratulate the former on its increased means of usefulness, as shown by the discharge of a heavy debt to the Parent Society, and by a further remittance to the same of one hundred pounds for general purposes. The County of Glamorgan has long afforded a bright example of liberality, by the support of all institutions con- nected with the welfare of the Church and the cause of religion. Witness the Clergy Widow and Orphan Society," and the excellent Institu- tions named above. And yet the incomes these societies receive are but small instalments com- pared with the wealth with which Providence has bfessed this portion of the Principality. We look in vain in the subscription lists fg? the names of men who have realized princely fortunes by the labours of the poor, for whose benefit these soci- eties were mainly established, and to whose revenues an annual five guineas would be but the absorption of an ,gcepr> drop. But we would de- pend with more confidence for an increase of funds on the united efforts of the middle classes, in moderate contributions of crowns and shillings, and a large sum would be easily collected under the Qiispices of the v devout women," not a few" of whom the present, as thp early Church, can boast. In the days of chivalry the sex was influential, but this was not for good. We would urge a British lady still to retain chivalry's glorious essence, not the faded flower," by ad- vocating the noblest cause in which gentle lips and eyes can be employed, that of religion and the pooler irlembers of the Catholic church. The office is indeed a high and noble one, and we press it on our fair readers for early acceptance. Nor let the offerings of the humble poor be des- nised -eyeI) for their own sakes. The widow bought as much fpr two mites as Zaccheus did for half his Estate. We would venture to reepm- mend also to those who are already subscribers the devotion of a little time, as well as money to the support of these societies. This would be influential in many ways. We were glad to see at the last meeting the well known faces of those staunch lay suppciriers Cfí the Church, Colonel Morgan, Mr. Bruce Pryce, and Mr. Thomas, of Pwllywrach, affording their zealous aid in pro- moting the objects of these Institutions. The effect of such attendance by the Subscribers would, we are convinced, tend greatly to enlarge the influence of the Societies, aud extend their usefulness,—the torpid are roused by such public manifestation of the zeal of others. Even these district societies need auxiliary aid. Surely Merthyr, Dowlais, and Aberdare could supply much to the general fund. The solitary guinea, (now that the subscription of Sir John Guest, Bart., M.P., is withdrawn) comes from the esti- mable Curate of the former place, the Rev. T. Williams. Why is this ?-not, we are persuaded, for want of will, but that the claims of these in- valuable Church Associations are not brought before the members of the Church, The Promo- tion of Christian Knowledge, and the Propagatiqn of the Gospel in Foreign Parts !-the very names of the Societies proclaim their nature and object, and are pregnant with the highest and purest motives to exertion. To labour in the cause of God and of our fellow men is our duty-to be permitted to do so is an UNSPEAKABLE privilege.— We feel assured that at the next audit of these Institutions, the one under the able Secretaryship of the Rev. J. M. Traherne, and the other under that of the Rev. T. Stacey, it will be found that we have not written these few lines in vain. ■ J) URNJU J.

CARDIFF DISTRICT. Openin¡( of the Temple of Friendship Lodge of the M. U. of Odd Fellows. On Monday last the opening of the above lodge was celebrated by an excellent dinner, provided by Mr, Philip David, of the Three Horse Shoes, to which between 40 and 50 gentlemen sat down, and bore ample testimony to the attention and kindness of the worthy host. The guests began to assemble shortly after two o'clock, and about half-past, sur- rounded the well-covered table, under the able presidency of Mr. Jenkins, ironmonger. After doing justice to the ample fare provided, the tables were cleared, and the social glass succeeded, twin-brother with the dessert. Loyal and patriotic toasts were interspersed with songs and recitation^ and the afternoon imperceptibly wQre away in social har- mony. About halLpa&t six o'clock the founders adjourned to the new lodge room, and proceeded to the business of the day. Several members were made, and there is every prospect of this lodge soon be- coming the first in the district. CARDIFF, November 3, 1841,7.4n inquest was held at the Angel Inn, before R. Lewis Reece, Esq., coroner, on the body of Rowland Thomas, aged about 34, who came by his death as follows :— Alfred Gregory said he was a clerk employed to at- tend the Lady Charlotte steam-packet, and was going along the road leading to the Bute Dock on Monday morning last; on coming near the spot where the rail-road crosses, saw deceased coming along with his horse and cart; he was at the horse's head; somebody called out to deceased, who turned, just as an empty tram was crossing the road; it struck the horse and deceased down, and he fell between the rails, and the empty tram passed over deceased, without touching hirr), deceased cried qut, and wit- ness ran to his assistance could feel that his ribs were broken; obtained further assistance, and con- veyed deceased home in a cart, Edward Evans, Esq., surgeon, attended deceased instantly, and found his ribs were fractured, and he had been severely injured deceased never really rallied and witness was of opinion, that the injuries the de- ceased received were the cause of death. Verdict, Accidental Death." CARDIFF H^BOHAIJICS' INSTITUTE.—ye are glad to inform our readers that several gentlemen are about to deliver Ipcturesonipopular subjects, in the large room of the institute, to which, non-subscribers, male and female, will be admitted. We hope that our fellow townsmen will, by their presence, en- courage the efforts made by the society. The reading room is well supplied with periodicals, papers, &c., and is well attended. We shall, probably, give the list of lectures, and their subjects, in our next, CARDIFF MUNICIPAL ELECTION.—-The annual elections came off on Monday last. There was no opposition in the south ward, and the three retiring members, Mr. Anthony Allsop, Mr. Morgan Lisle, and Mr. Richard Tredwin were re-elected. In the north ward, Mr. Allen, pastry-cook, offered himself in opposition. Mr. Allen had canvassed most in- dustriously, and!hi§ friends were confident of sgpeess; but on the numbers being cast up at the close of the poll, Messrs. W. Bird, Davies, and Lloyd, were declared to be duly elected. The numbers were as follow:—Bird, 73, Davies, 66.,Lloyd, 74, Allen, 60. Eight votes were not admitted, in consequence of informalities; every one of the persons so rejected voted for Mr. Bird, and 7 of them for Mr. Allen. At thp petty §esgions for the h^red qf Dyna^powis on Monday last, Evan Okey, of Sully, labourer, was fined 50s. and costs, for wiring hares on the lands of Sir J. J. Guest, Bart. NIGHT POACIlING.-On Tuesday last. John Rees, of Wrinston, Wenvoe, shoemaker, was committed to hard labour for two months in the house of correction, for poaching in the night time in the woods of R. F. Jenner, isjsq., at the parish of Saint Andrews. THE CARDIFF HUST BALL.-We gave in our last number a very hurried account of the hunt ball, which took place on Thursday week, at the Cardiff Arms hotel, in this town. The account in question was founded on a report sfiit to us by a corres- pondent but we regret to state, that the names of some individuals of the highest rank and influence in the room were omitted, We are quite certain that blame will not bo attributed to us in this matter, for in the absence of a regular list of the gay and festive throng," we could not be expected to furnish a complete account. On the morning succeedingth ball we applied for the names of the parties attending it, but could not obtain such a list as we could de- pend on for accuracy. Those who know anything of newspaper ijiatters must be aware that we are, in a great measure, compelled tq depend on the fidelity of correspondents, A.nd although we have no reason to supppse that in the present instance we were in- tentionally made the vehicle of casting a slight on any one, we cannot but express our sorrow, that for one moment such an intention should have been rqputed to us, THE THHATIIE.-N'fr. Woulds made his bow to a Cardiff audience on Monday last, in the character of Billy Lackaday. The old favourite must have felt gratified at the reception he met with. If the pit did not rise at him," it was only because the pit was not over tenanted. "Sweethearts and Wives" was very respectably played. On Tuesday evening Rob Roy delighted the lovers qf Scotch romance, Mr. Perkins doing the plaided tlief. Mr. Woulds was a vara prudent" Baillie and Mrs. Macready, ns Helen Macgregor, quite astonished us. We had not seen this lady on the boards for many years; and her Helen recalled our <' youthful days." Macbeth was enacted on Thursday, the principal character being sustained by Mr. Charles Perkins. It is use- less to criticise orie of Shakespere's best plays now-a- day—of the performers, it is enough to say, that Mr. Perkins, although he did not play the part of great Glamis, worthy Cawdor," according to our ideas of the Thane, was much applauded. Mrs. Macready assumed the part of Lady Macbeth. We have seen Mrs. Warner, and we have heard of Mrs. Siddons as the heroine of the tragedy, and, consequently, did not expect nilfQh originality The Lady Maobeth of Thursday evening was a quiet subdued stage lady of title. Why did not Miss Ellis play the murderess! Few country companies can boast of such an actress, and the management may as well know, that keeping a good actress in the back ground is not the way to fill a house." Mr. Harrington is an actor of high promise; he reade Shakespeare beautifully, and showp that he is an apt scholar in the retldra!'llath¡t' school. Mr. rlaudls quiet humour too, must nos be for-got ten-there is more in him than some wot ofy We have space for no further remarks but we would hint to the manager,maiingeress,management,. or whatever it may be, that such pieces as London Assurance,' well acted as it was (bye-the-bye, where is Mr. T. Green,) will draw better houses than tragedies, which in the acting (we speak it in good part) unwittingly provoke comparisons, which, as Mrs. Malapfcop says, are !f odorous." John M. Richards, Esq., of Roath Castle, and lady give a bespeak on Monday evening: A bumper may be expected-v.e. LARKING.—On Friday morning last, about three o'clock, three persons (the names ol whom are known) committed a violent outrage in this towp. One of them on being interrogated gave a false name, and as no policeman was near, he could not be taken into custody. The parties referred to may rest assured that the vext time they disturb the rest of those who detest such silly practices, a warm welcome and a further exposure will await them.
MERTHYR TYPVIK- MERTHYR.—A subscription has been set on foot for the poor creatures who are left destitute by the late dreadful accident at Pepydarran. The proprietors, Alderman Thompson, and T. Forman, Esq., have liberally added the funds; and to their honour be it said, the workmen have come forward nobly, but the wants of the widow and orphans are urgent-winter is coming on and great distress will exist, We ci4ll earnestly on our friends to assist the poor eveatures, by forwarding their pontributions to the Manager qf Penydarran Works, wjio will see them properly applied* The Rev. D. W. Jefferys, curate of St. Bride's Major, in this county, was lately presented by a few members of his congregation (as a high acknowledg- ment for bis able services, as minister of the above parish for the last four years,) with a handsome silver Pocket Communion Service, and a copy of Bishop Coverdale's first translation of the Bible, elegantly bound.

BRIDGEND POLICE REPORT. Saturday, October 30th, 1841, before the Rev. Robeit Knight, Richard Frunkien, and J. E. Bichend, Esqrs. Thotnas Hopkins, publican, of the Star Poblic- honse, in the parish of Wick, was fined in the miti- gated penalty of £8 and costs, for illegally permitting certain games of chance and the throwing of dice, (contrary to the express words of his license,) to be carried on bis house. Char-lea Verity, and George Lauder, both of St. Donat's parish, were each fined X2 and costs, for trespassing in the pursuit of game, being without certificates, qn the lands of Mr, William Thomas. It cannot be too generally known and understood throughout the county, that business must in future be carried on by the new constabulary force and not by the old constables in each parish, the latter being now solely under the command when called upon, of the chief constables, and in case qf any Qgeuce being committed, application should he made to the nearest Police-office, or to the Superinteadaut of the district in which such offence occurs, CowBltiDGK.—The Rev. John Williams, M. A., of Marcross, has been presented to the Perpetual Cu- racy of Monknash, in this county. Patron—John Bruce Pryce, Esq.
NEATH PETTY STSKIONS,
NEATH PETTY STSKIONS, On Tuesday "last the 29th ult., at these Sessions, the following Magistrates were F. Fredricks, N. V. E' aughan and Henry Thomas, Enquires. There were two cases of a most aggravated kind, brought before them, in both of which, Williams Wil. liams, Esq., ofAberpergwm, was the Complainant and the Defendants were two Brothers of the names of Tho- mas Philip. and Qayid Philip, the Tenants of a Farm the property of C. Hanbury Leigh, Esq., of Pontypool Park, and the offence each was charged with, was that of cutting and stealing growing timber. It appeared from the evidence, that five trees were cut about three weeks ago, from Mr. Williams's pro- perty, and the marfes ofthe trees on the ground over which they were dragged, were traced for about one mile and a half, and until within about half a mile of the Defendants' residence, where the trees were lost Some suspicion arose in the mind of Complainants1 Weodward that the Defendants were the parties who stole the trees, and he acenrdiuoy applied for, and obtained a search Warrant, The premises of the De- fendants, then searched apd one tree was found in each of their houses. The cases were most satisfactorily proved and the stumps of the trees, which were left on the ground were produced by the Complainant's Woodward, and they corresponded exactly with the trees, found by the Constable on executing the search warrant.—The Defendants were fined X5. each and costs. It is hoped the neighbouring Landowners, who have lately suffered very much from the effects of losing their timber, will be on the alert, and hring parties to Justice, and we have nq dot in simi ar to the nreseqtj ^e Magistrates will deal very sever|y with future offenders.
To the Editor of the Advertiser and Guardian, SIR,-Allow me to avail myself of the medium of your journal, to attract the attention of the Magis- trates, to a subject connected with the new Police Force, and ot iufiqite importance to this town and neighboqrhqod, if not to the county generally. I understand that at the last Quarter Sessions, the report of Capt. Napier on the subject of the erection of Station houses and prisoner's cells was approved and conferred. There it; one portion of it, I conceive, very objectionable, and that ought to be altered; I refer to the recommendation, that one Station-house with six cells should be erected for this district, in some central situation, between Merthyr and Dowlais. Now, sir, however plausible it may appear in a theortical or military view to concentrate the force in one position, I fear it would prove very inefficient in practice, as will appear manifest, if we consider the purposes for which the force is established. The great majority of cases in which their services will he required here, are drunken broils and dis- turbances, occurring in the night time and on such occasions, it requires the efforts of two or more men to apprehend, and in many cases, carry the delin- quents to a place of custody; and if the cells are erected according to the proposed plat), they will from necessity, be distant from half a-mile to a mile from the spots, where those disturbances generally occur. If we consider the difficulty of conveying persons apprehended for those offences, through, often a crowded street for such a distance, we can easily imagine the loss of time, trouble, I\J, force it would occupy and require. I would, therefore, strongly recommend, that in- stead of having the cells at one place, that two be erected at Dowlais, in the most convenient spot about the centre of the place, and that the four remainder, (if so many are required) be erected at the lower end of the town of Merthyr, where I apprehend the population are most dense, and disturbances con- sequently more likely to occur. 1 remain, sir, yours most obediently, AN INHABITANT.

NEWPORT FARMER'S CLUB.Our agricuifn-r: friends will be glad to learn that a Farmer's Club > ■ about to be established in Newport (See Adr-i- tisement.) NEWPORT.—We observe, with extreme regret, the Churchwardens of St. Woollos's Church, N port, have put forth a notice, in which they state time in consequence of the inadequacy of the funds raise;! by the last year's voluntary contributions to defray the extra expenses of the Church Service for the current year, and the difficulties experienced in pro- curing money to meet the present liabilities, they will be compelled to suspend all such Services as will be likely to increase the present debt. The gas has been cut off, and the evening service must be discon- 'n tinued. Surely the friends of the Church in the emporium of South Wales," will not allow such a state of things to exist! We hope for better things from them. A ball took place at the Angel Inn, Abergavenny. on Friday, the 22nd ult., under the patronage of J. Rolls, Esq., of the Hendre, and Capt. B. Jones, of Llanarth, which was attended by a most numerous and distinguished company from aU the gentlemen's seats in the neighbourhood. A party of about thirty came from Llanover, ditto the Hendre, Llanarth, and Pontypool. About 150 sat down to supper which surpassed any thing we ever before saw on a similar occasion in South Wales or England; in addition to tea and coffee, and a variety of cakes and con- fectionary, was cold game, baws, fowls, fish, grapes, and pines, salads, jellies, &c. Indeed, we should say it was too good as it throws into the shade what before gave perfect atisfaction. The ball was kept up with great spirit till one o'clock, when supper was an- nounced, after which a country dance of about forty couple in the good old style, restored animation, and the ball did not end till near six o'clock in the morning. The dresses of the ladies and gentlemen who had at- tended the bridal of the previous day at Llanwern, (between the niece of Sir C. Salusbury, Bart,, and Mr Gore) were enlivened with the wedding favours worn on that occasion. A large shoal of sprats was caught off Gold Cliff, on Monday last, weighing upwards of two r, tons. Such a circumstance has not occurred for many years. NEWPORT MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.—The first half yearly general meeting of this Institution, which, we are glad to hear, is in a most flourishing condi- tion, was held on Tuesday evening last. for the purpose of electing twelve committee men, instead of twelve others who had retired. The meeting, after balloting for four of the gentlemen nominated, was adjourned to Wednesday evening, when the remain- der were balloted for, and the following were announced as duly elected --Mechanies-Mr. Wm. Edwards, Mr. Thomas Richards, Mr. George Henderson, Mr. W. W. Harper, Mr. Thomas Hartree, Mr. John Rees.- Professionals -Mr. John O'Dwyer, Rev. James Francis, Mr. E. Dowling, Mr. T. J. Phillips, Mr. Thomas Martin, Mr. Thomas Monkhouse.—We congratulate the Institute on its success, and are glad to observe the committee composed of such respect- able men, which is an additional guarantee for its future prosperity.
NEWPORT MUNICIPAL ELECTION.
NEWPORT MUNICIPAL ELECTION. The Election of Town Councillors for the East and West Wards took place on Monday last, in the Police Court. Three members for each were to be chosen, to fill the vacancies occasioned by those who retired by rotation. In the West Ward, the return- ing members were-Mr. Lewis Edwards, Mr. C. Desmond, and Mr. Wedlake. Mr. Wm. Townsend, opposed Mr. Lewis Edwards, but, we are sorry to say, that the controversy was not graced by that courtesy which might have been exhibited. Lan- guage of the most unceremonious description parsed current between the rival parties, and the Billings- gate metal was paid on each side with interest. One of Mr. Edwards's friends, a poor old cripple, was helped into the room by two men, his supporters: The poll had closed before be could be carried to the table, and then a disgraceful scene ensued the help- less cripple was rudely jostled by the mob, and he escaped severe injuries only by mere chance. Mr. Townsend, after the election, addressed the assembly, and endeavoured to persuade them that in not electing him the community had lost a valuable repre- sentative. Mr. Dickenson, of Chartist notoriety, attempted to speak, but such was the uproar that whilst our informant was present he (Mr. D.) was not allowed to say a word.—East Ward-The three members old Mr. J. W. Jones, Mr. Daniel Tombs, senr., and Mr. John Johns, whose time had expired, again came forward. The opposition con- sisted of Mr. Daniel Tombs, jun., Mr. Geo. Oliver, Mr. Ebenezer Rogers, and the ubiquitous Mr. Wm. Townsend. The contest was sharp but it was carried on in a more quiet and fair style than that in the West. At the close of the respective polls the num- bers stood thus:— WEST WARD. Mr. Lewis Edwards. 184i Mr. Desmond I30> Re-elected. Mr. Wedlake JOS) Mr. Townsend. 95 EAST WARD.

A ball took place on the J.1th, given to the neighbouring gentry, to the number of about 150. Among whom were the families of Llanwern, Llansanfraed, Llanarth, Llandeilo, Uanvaes, the Helldre, tho Pentre, &c. &c. When the waltz and quadrille were alternated with" the old country dances. &c., played by the efficient band of Mr. French, of Newport. Mr. Thomas, (Penceirdd), of Merthyr, attended with his company of excellent Welsh singers, and delighted the visitors with the Cambrian melodies sung in Wel sh, accompanied by the celebrated native harper, Mr Griffiths, who, with the family harper, attended nightly in the Minstrels' gallery. Sometimes playing the lively Welsh reel or country dance, in which the ladies took an activs parts, at others the well-known Welsh jig, to which a prize was competed for with much spirit between 11 1 the peasants, and at last divided between thd candi- dates, whose extraordinary activity and variety of steps were declared equal by the company. We understand the gaieties are not yet concluded,' and. we rejoice that they continue to be characterized bj the desire to bring up the national music and rVancinf which has been most undoubtedly so little attended to of late years.-( From a Correspondent.)
