Watkins, Esq., of Pcnnoyre, J. P. De Win- ton, Esq., of Maesderwen, John Lloyd, Esq., of Dinas, and J. P. Price, Esq., of the National Bank, who were going out by rotation under the direc'ions of the Municipal Act, were re-elected without opposi- tion. On Wednesday last, a special meeting of the Council was beld for the purpose of taking into con- sideration the proceedings consequent upon the resig. nation of Mr. Alderman Williams, who had become disqualified, in consequence of residing for a short time in apartments, while making alterations in his own residence; a vacancy in tho council was ac- cordly declared, and the appointment of a new alder. man fixed for the quarterly meeting on the 9th. At the Council Meeting, held on the 9th instant, at the Guildhall, Brecon, Mr. Henry May being applied on behalf of Mr. George Henderson, the present manager of the Theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, for their written consent, in order that the Magistrates assembled at quarter sessions may grant a license to Mr. George Henderson, to open the Brecon Theatre the ensuing season. After a lengthened discussion, in which Mr. John Jones, of Glanhonddu, Mr. Lloyd Vaughan Watkins, of Pennoyre, and Mr. John Powell, of Watlan Mount, Brecon, took an active part,—it was carried that the consent should be given. We are glad of this, inasmuch as the military now quar- tered at Brecon, will have some change to the dull monotony of a country town offered to them, and there are very many of the inhabitants who will like- wise have a pleasure in seeing the Drama once more enacted on our stage, that the gloom of our winter months may be then more innocently dissipated instead of elsewhere. We hope Mr. Henderson will bring with him such a company as will ensure him suctess, for everything depends upon the wtrit of the actors. The two last companies that have been here were honoured with the performances of military amateurs, and much and deservedly were they ap- plauded. It will add much to our pleasure if their examples this season be kindly imitated. (Commit nicated.) SERIOUS ACCIDENT.-Oti Friday week. as Mr. Price, of the Swan Inn, Talgarth, accompanied by his wife, was taking a cart load of agricultural produce for sale «t Llaue.lly, fie found that tho load pressed unequally on the horse, and mounted the cart (on which Mrs. Price was sealed) for the purpose of adjusting it; at that moment the horse fell down, aud they were both thrown to the ground. Mr. Price escaped fortunately witil slight injury, but Mrs. Price had three of her ribs broken, and sustained other injuries, from which sue is still suffering severely. BtiF.coN.—The gratifying intelligence of the birth of a Prince of VVales having arrived by Wednesday's mail, merry peal "ere rung on the belis of the several churches, and every demonstration of joy was mani- tested by the inhabitants of this ancient and loyal borough. e BRECON BOROUGH,—9th Nov., 1811.

CHURCH PASTORAL AID SOCIETY.—We are glad to find that the excellency of this institution is deservedly growing in public estimation, and that the Principality of W ales is becoming more sensible ot the debt of gratitude which it owes for the liheral grants made for the supply of ministerial aid in her populous parishes. The Biftninghctm Advertiser, recals to mind some predictions of the eccentric Sir Harcourt Lees, relative to the secret designs of the Jesuits, which were laughed at when they were uttered, but which have, curiously enough, already been partially ful- filled, viz the breaking out of a rebellion in Canada, and the burning of the Royal Exchange and the Tower. LANTRISSENT ST, LUKE'S FAIR.-Tliis fair was well supplied with cattle, but prices were rather lower than at the last fairs in the county. Fat sheep sold at 6d. per lb. Horses inferior, and the sale very trifling. There was a good supply of cheese, the top price of which reached 65s. a cwt.
