FARMERS' CLUns.-Swansea has followed the good ex- ample of Cardiff in establishing a Farmers' Ctub. It is promised the warm support of Mr. Talbot and Mr. Dilhvyn Llewelyn. It has our best wishes for its prosperity. At a meeting of the magistrates, on Monday, occasion was taken to speak in terms of warm and deserved eulogy of the efficiency of our excellent Superintendent, Mr. Stockdale, in securing the order and quiet of the streets on the Sabbath. Constrasted with other towns, Cardiff, it will be admitted, is in this particular, very exemplary. CURIOUS COINCIDENcr-A few days since were, assembled together at the New Inn, Cardiff, three remarkable in- dividuals, who had looked in by accident. One was reputed the best Welsh harp maker in South Wales, another the best performer on the Welsh harp, and the third the late winner at Ogmore races. The coincidence was rather curious. The detachment of Scot's Greys quartered in this town are in daily expectation of being removed. They will be suc- ceeded, it is understood, by a portion of the Enniskillen or Fourth Royal Irish Dragoons. THE LATE RIOTS.—A True Bill against David Williams, for an assault at Gellygaer, on the 7th of March last, on Mr. Lewis Lewis, having been found, it was expected the trial would have taken place on Tuesday. An arrangement was, however, entered into, under which the defendant pleaded guilty, and a recognizance was entered into by himself in £100, and by his sureties, Thomas Peters, of Lanvabon, shopkeeper, and William Edmonds, of Lanvabon, tailor, in £ \0. each, to appear for judgment at the next or any subse- quent Quarter Sessions when required, on eight days notice being given the defendant, or left at his usual residence, and in the mean time to keep the peace. The colliers having, we understand, returned to their work at Gellygaer, we trust the leniency on this occasion shown by Thomas Powell, Esq., will have its proper effect. SAINT DAVID'S CHURCH LivrRPOOL.On reference to an advertisment in another colum, it will be seen that the trustees will proceed to the election of a minister on Wednesday the third of may next; and that it is their inten- tion to make every effort to procure assistance for one or more of the scniccs from the Pastoral Aid Society. A few days since, a young man, was found in a beastly state of intoxication, on the side of the canal, and so near the water as to incur imminent danger of suffocation. Doctor Evans, who happened to be passing at the time, informed the police of the circumstance, who repaired to the spot, and found him nearly dead. He was conveyed on a shutter t) I his own house, where, with the assistance of the stomach pump and other restoratives, his life was preserved. He was brought before the magistrates on Thursday, and fined 5s. for being drunk. MELANCHOLLY ACCIDENT. On Saturday morning a poor, young girl, while crossing a bridge, near Treforrest, by some accident, missed her footing and fell in. An individual, passing at the time, ran to her assistance, and attempted to get her out. He had succeeded in catching hold of her by the head, and might, perhaps, have extricated her, but find- ing his own footing give way, and being quite off his legll, and not an expert swimmer, he let go his hold, and the poor girl, sunk to rise no more. The deceased had been return- ing home after having served her father with breakfast. CHURCH-RATE NO TAX. It had been argued," said Sir H. J. Fust, that no Tax could be imposed on persons without their own con- sent but the making of a Church-Rate was not the imposition of a Tax the Tax was already imposed by the Common law of the land, and the only question for the "Parishioner-, was, how that tax should lie distributed amongst themselves most equitably, with reference to the 14 value of the lands and tenements occupied by tli in, and the occupation of which they entered upon, mbject to that 7ax. The making a Rate and the imposing a Tax, Were ditrereiit things the making of a Rate was merely the determining of the Proportion in which the Parishioners should contribute to the discharge of a common obli- g-ition.The Braintree (Jasc. CARDIFF POLICE.—MONDAY. (Before the Mayor.) Robe," Cor nick was fined 5s. and costs, for being drunk and -disorderly in Whitrnore-lane, on Saturday night. Cornick, on being told of the penalty, suddenly recollected that Saturday was the 1st of April—all fools' day—when people are privileged to play the fool with impunity. HE SHOULD I:E A TEETOTALLER. Michael Duty and Henry O'Halty, two fierce looking Emeralders, were charged by Thomas ltafferty with assaulting him. Rafferty, it appeared, was some time since a Tee-to- taller of the very first water, and while in that blissful state of exemption from the ills attendant on the vagaries of good or bad spirits, was a model of 7'ea-totalism. He was then a spruce (not beer) looking person, and stood at high-wafer mark in the opinion of the Teetotallers of the town. In an evil hour, however, he forgot his pledge, or only remembered it when it was broken, and took to drinking." His head exhibited sad punishment. His teeth were absolutely shat- tered in his head. His eye that whilome was as lustrous as the water on which it gloated had 11 shut up shop," and looked what milliners call" a blue-black," which the ladies consider the fastest colour. In this maudlin, tipsy, peni- tential state he kissed the book," preliminary to his de- position but instead of applying it to the rich and exuberant lips of a teetotaller, it was raised to a piece of leather stuck on the under lip, by way of soldering it. Shouldn't he be a tectoi aller 1 On Saturday night last it appeared the complainant went to Daly's house, by invitation, where he was asked to drink. The jug of beer which lay on the table was soon disposed of, when Daly said, by way of amicably clubing the affair for another jug, tliit 11 he'd be two shillings if complainant would be one shilling-" Com- plainant said that he had but seven-pence in coppers towards replenishing the jug. Daly at once, for some reason unex- plained, set upon complainant, and struck him 011 his head in a violent manner. His eye and mouth were much injured. Daly, in his defence, said that complainant insisted on singing a song in his house, and creating a disturbance, and that he only used reasonable force to put him out. Fined 5s. and costs. William Lficis and Richard Scott were charged with being in a beastly state of drunkenness on Friday night. They were found in an utterly helpless state by the police near the canal, and riorrowly escaped suffocation. Fined 5s. and costs. INFORMATION AGAINST A BEER-HOUSE. IJcnry Gibbie, landlord of the Milford Arms," was fined X2 and 8s. costs, for having his house open at unseasonable hours, and occasionally harbouring disreputable characters. The specific complaint against the defendant was, that on Thursday night week his house was open at twelve o'clock. Females of very questionable characters were found there at that hour. THURSDAY. CAUTION TO HOUSEKEEPERS. TVm. Jenkins and Robert Cormick, were charged on sus- picion of having burglariously entered the dwelling-house of Thomas Homfrey, Bridge-street, and stolen therefrom, on Tuesday morning last, a coat, a silk dress, a pair of shoes and a ham. According to the complainant's story, it appeared that he got up on the morning in question at six o'clock to go to his work, and drew the door after him. He returned at half-past eight o'clock, when he found his family up. His wife, on coming down stairs, missed the ham, and thought it was put aside by way of joke. A young woman in the house missed the silk dress, and on a further search, the coat and the other articles stated, were found to be gone. Complain- ant, on ascertaining his loss, went to Mr. Stockdale, who recommended him to search the old clothes-men's shops. Among others he called at the shop of Mr. Barney, with a request to stop any person offering his coat, &c., for sale. On Tuesday evening, the coat was sold to Barney, and from a description of the person who sold it, measures were taken to apprehend him. The coat was presented by Jenkins, who represented himself at the time as being in distress. The prisoners, from the description given of them, were apprehended between Whitmore-lane and the docks, and detained in custody. Jenkins was committed for trial, Cormick remanded for further examination.
