On Tuesday last the Town Councillors assembled at the Borough Court, for the purpose of electing a Mayor in the place of Thomas Hughes, Esq., and also three Aldermen in the room of Sir Thomas Phillips, Thomas Powell and George Gethiug, Esqrs. After the usual forms were gone through, and two or three Councillors bad made a few observations on the business of the meeting, the Mayor proposed Edward StcMining Allfrey, Esq., as a fit and proptr person to 611 the office, which was seconded by Thomas Hawkins, Esq. Mr. Samuel Jones proposed Mr. Lewis Edwards, which was seconded by Mr. Mullock. A poll was demanded (eighteen members only being present), there voted for Mr. Allfrey, 8; for Mr. Lewis Edwards, 10. Mr. Allfrey then in a sensible well-tempered speech ten- tered his resignation, and took with him the regret -of every respectable person present. Afterward* Mr. Hawkins, Mr. Hughes (late Mayor), and Mr. Martin Morrison followed Mr. Allfrcv'sexatnple. The follow- ing Aldermen were chosen from the Coupcif --Mr. Lewis Edward.. Mr. -Stephen -igsitil don, and Mr. Richard Mullock. There are seven vacancies for Councillors, but who will now be ambitious enough to fill up the vacancies after the withdrawal of those very useful servants to the public, time only can tell.—(From a Correspondent.) [We had prepared an Article on the above Election, but must defer it until next week.] Newport Police Court.- Thursday, Nov.

NEWPORT FAIR.-Tiie fair held on Saturday last was somewhat plentifully supplied with cattle of all sorts, we are however informed, that but few ex- changed owners; those also which were disposed of being not of the first class, and scarcely realising, even as such, an adequate value. It being the usual market day, thu general business of the town was prttty brisk.

On Monday week an in- quest was held in the Board-room of the Union Workhouse, Monmouth, before T. Hughes, Esq., coroner, to enquire into the death of a strange man who died in the street 011 Saturday, while being led fro in the Dispensary, when the followill particulars were elicited :—John I ouikins said his father kept a lodging-house, near Wye-bridge; deceased came there late on Friday night he appeared unwell; com- plained of his breath and a pain in his chest; thought lie should he better when he got to bed and got warm he groaned very bad in the night, and in the morning was much worse; wished to have a doctor; said he had got some money, and lie would pay as far as it went; witness went for Mr. Thompson, surgeon, but he was not at home; he next went to Mr. Prosser. who oidered deceased to he brought to the Dispen- sary witness assisted to get him up, and dress him, and also to take him to the Dispensary, he being unable to walk on arriving at. the Dispensary, fllr. Prosser, surgeon, saw him, and sent for Doctor Hol- brook, who was in an adjoining room, and who came immediately they requested deceased would go to the Union, but lie would not; they then ordered a draught for him and witness assistedjn bringing him back but they had not gone far before lie got so ill as to be unable to walk; some person brought out a chair; when they placed hi>n in it his head fell on his shoulder, and the people s:iid lie was dead he had half-a-crowu, sixpence, and two pennies in his pocket, with some papers by which it appears that his name is William Slatter, a native of Oxford, and by trade a carver and gilder, apparently about 50 yei.rs of age. Mr. Thompson, surgeon, examined the body, and had no doubt but lie died a natural death, — the jury returned a verdict accordingly. MONMOUTH.—Two fires occurred here last week, one nt Mr. Batbursts, opposite Jones's Almhouses, which destroyed the shop and its contents, and the other at Mr. HoweTs, Monnow-street, where the damage done was very trifling. On Thursday, the 4th instant, a numerous party assembled at J. W. Rolls, Esq., of the Hendre, to witness the private theatricals which were repeated with the greatest eclat this season. Last year our readers may remember the lively interest which was excited by the entertaining |and recherche represen tations which took place at this hospitable mansion, and this month other pieces have been again brought for ward acted entirely by amateurs, and with new scenery and decorations (Mr. Rolls having a private theatre attached to his residence). On the present occasion, "Perfection, or the fady of Munster," was the first piece, the Lady of Munster being re- presented by Miss Jane Williams, of Aberpergwui, (Llinos) whose varied talents were all brought into play by this character, which she enacted with a spirit and originality, only surpassed by her inimitable voice and musical science, which was lully manifested in ten most diflicult and pathetic songs. Mr. Rolls acted Charles Paragon with his usual charm. Mr. Greenfield's drbut in Sir Lawrence was most promis- ing, while Mrs. Alexander Rolls as Lady's Maid and Mr. Alexander Rolls as Valet, were most admirable. Mrs Rolls appeared with great effect in the part of Mis. Snooks, in the second piece of''How do you Manage," and Miss Williams, of Aherpergwm, as Mrs. Popjoy, electrified the audience. In the last piece Mr. Rolls appeared as Griffenhoof, in Shock- ing Events," Miss Jane Williams, of Aberpergwm, as Kitty, the Maid," surpassed herself in genuine humour as well as in harmony, and when she broke out into a duet with Mr. Alexander Rolls, who acted the Musician, to whom she is engaged, the company were entranced. Captain Jones, of Llanarth, also acted in the last piece, and represented his own character, (viz., an officer and gentleman) with easy elegance and address. Altogether the whole was in such perfect keeping—the selections so admirable- each part so perfect, and the genius of every indivi- dual so extraordinary, that it would be well for the Drama were the actors of the Hendre public profes- isors instead of private amateurs. At twelve o'clock the company were summoned to a magnificent supper, of which about sily partook, and the health Qt Mr. Rolls and his accomplished lady having been pro- posed by Sir Benjamin Hall, it was agreed that each gentleman who was endowed with the powers of song, si *iould be requested to favour the company with an air, which was complied with, and 31r. Rolls and Mr. A. Rolls, Mr Stretton, Captain Jones, Mr Vaughan, and Mr. Hutchius, each sung a favourite melody. The company did ü-Qt separate till nearly three o'clock. Among those present were the fatnilies from Dany- Park, Lianover, Llandeiio, Llansanfraed, Llanarth, and Kentchurch. Mrs. and Miss Clifford, Mr. Clif ford, Mr. Bunsen, blr. and Mrs. Greenficid, Captain Forbes, Colonel Scudamore, &c., Mrs. and the Miss Crawfords, &c., &c. We should not omit to mention that the same pieces were represented the two previous days tor the gratification of two other audiences, one of which consisted of the farmers and tenantry, and the other of the families residing in and near Mon. mouth. Widow and Orphan's Fund of the Manchester Unity of Odd Fellows, Cardiff District.-It is with feelings of the most heartfelt satisfaction that we notice an act of liberality on the part of the worthy Member for this borough, which will, we trust, be the means of drawing the attention of the opper classes to the above philanthropic and truly benevolent fund— a fund which must enlist the sympathies of every warm-hearted Englishman, established as it is to provide for the fatherless and widow, and thus cheer the onward course of those who have, by the hand of their all-wise Creator, been deprived of their natural protectors. With a liberality, well-worthy of imita- tion, the Right Hon. John Nicholl, M.P. for this borongh, has presented to the Widow and Orphan's Fund of the above district, the sum of C5, and when we find gentlemen moving in the upper circles of societv, thus feelingly alive to the interests of their more nuipble brethren, we cannot help expressing our approbation, and offering our humble but sincere meed of praise for such disinterested benevolence.
