Monmouthshire Assizes.



NEWPORT. DFATH BY DROWNING.—An inquest was held on Wednes- day, at Newport, before W. Brewer, Esq., coroner, on view of the body of one of the 73rd foot, stationed in that town. He fell into the dock on Monday, when, as it is supposed, he was in a state of inebriety. A verdict of Accidental death" was returned. This, unfortunately, forms the 7th person drowned in the Newport dock since the opening in October last. ° Messrs. William Evans, James Garrett, Thomas Purnell, and Clement Zouch, have been appointed overseers for the year ensuing. We understand Reginald J. Blewitt, Esq., M. P., has paired off with Joseph Bailey, junr., Esq., from the 24 March tilt after Easter. HOME MANUFACTURE.—Mr, Powell, saddler and harness maker, of this town, has just completed a set of carriage harness for Sir Digby Mackworth, Bart., High Sheriff of the county, which for taste, chasteness of. style, and beauty of execution, may vie with anything of the kind produced in London. The ladies attending at Trevethin Church, have presented their newly-appointed vicar, the Rev. Thos. Davies, M.A., with a very handsome silk gown and cassock, in testimony of their high esteem for his unwearied zeal and assiduity in discharging the arduous duties of a curate in that parish during a period of nine years. 1Ve regret to hear that some of the new men employed at Butteryhatch, when bringing their families and furniture from Dowlais in trams on Wednesday week, were attacked near the Fleur de lis, by some of the old hands, who pelted them with stones, and seriously bruised them. There are warrants applied for against some of the assailants, who are known. Miss Elizabeth Bisse, has been elected to the situation of organist, at St. Mary's church, Monmonth, in the place of Mr. Richard Wall, who was dismissed by the unanimous voice of the parish. Mr. G. W. Morgan, of Gloucester, was proposed in opposition to Miss Bisse, a poll was demanded on the part of Mr. Morgan, at the close the numbers were for Miss Bisse 235, Mr. Morgan 15, majority 220.
