We have much pleasure in stating that Thomas Prothero, Esq., of Mai pas House, having qualified as a county magistrate for Monmouthshire, will attend at IIw eport Police Court, to which place a gentleman possessing such talents and general abilities as Mr. P., must be a most valuable acquisition.

INQUEST—An inquest was held on Saturday last, before VV illiam Brewer, Esq., at Cwtn Brain, on the body of John Legg, aged thirteen years, who was killed by a tram-waggon passing over him.' Verdict, Accidental death. GIRL'S Burns" SCHOOL, NEWPORT—.(yn Fri- day, the 19tll instant, the Rev. D. ap U|,Ts Stephen delivered the tirst. of a course of lectures in* the Girl's British School, Llanarth street, on the subject of Education, in aid of the funds of the school. The advantages of Education were most eloquently shown. The Rev. lecturer, observed that it •» destroys prejudice, annihilates superstition—furnishes sources o" gratification, placing man, as far all his intellect is concerned, in the position for which his benevolent Maker intended ItIin; and thus only can we assert the claims, exercise the prerogatives, and discharge the duties of mind. COIIONEH'S INQUEST. —An inquest was held nt Beaufort Iron Works on Monday se'imight, before Edward Davies, Esq., on view of the body of Edward Price, who came to his death under the following cir- cumstances:—From the evidence before the jury it appeared that the deceased, who was five years oi l, went on Saturday last to see his atitit wit-, livt-s it a short distance from his father's: lie was left alone for a few minutes iu the kitchen, when, getting too near the tire, his clothes ignited, and although assistance was immediately procured, and oils applied, the injuries he received were of so seriuus a nalure that after linger- ing till 4 o'clock on Sunday morning death terminated his sufferings. Verdict—"Accidental Death'' NEWPORT MECHANICS' INSTITUTE Some time ago a sub committee was appointed to procure lectures tor tiiis Institution during the winter session, and we are happy to be enabled to say that, arrangements have been made with several gentletqen, and it is expected that a Lecture will be delivered every week, from this time to March next. The first was delivered on Tuesday evening, by illr. S. J. Evans, (pupil of it. W. Buss, Esq.,) on painting and painters; the room was literally crammed, and the young lecturer made his debut amid the most enthusiastic plaudits. Having glanced at the origin of the art of painting, the date of which is involved in much obscurity, the lecturer proceeded to notice sotue of the most eminent professors of antiquity, adverting with considerable eloquence to the few specimens which have come down to us, both of painting and sculpture, and adverting to the names of%nany of its professors who have Nourished at a less distant date, dwelt with con- siderable feeling upon that of Cimon, the Cleonasan. Phidias, Zeuxis, Timauthes, Apelles, &c. H iving canvassed the rise and perfectipg of the art in Italy, and enumerating the names of many of its never to be forgotten Mayters, the talented lecturer concluded by submitting to his audience, in language the most glowing and eloquent, the views he entertained of the right adaptation and intentions of the art, con- tending that the stt)dy of tlje fine arts was designed by the Almighty to refine and eleyate hqraanity, and that if the desirableness of the art of painting be at all questioned,—poetry, that delight of all minds, must also he; and Homer, Milton, Shakspear, Ap- pelles Raphael, and Michael Angelo may be con- signed to eternal infamy for a misapplication of their talents.
