The only prisoner for trial was Henry Warner, charged with stealing a brass boiler, the property of the Rev. James John Evans. He was found guilty, and sentenced to 6 calendar months' im- prisonment with hard labour.—There was one appeal 16 an order of removal, in which the parishioners of St. David s, Breconshire, were the appellants, and the parishioners of Llanvigan, in the same county, were the respondents, touch- ing the removal of Jennett Thomas, and her two children. The order was quashed, with 40s. costs, subject, however, to a case reserved for the opinion of the Court of Queen's Bench, as to the sufficiency of the examination taken before the removing magistrates. On Saturday week, the first stone of the New Parish Church of Yazor, Herefordshire, was laid by Lady Price. The day was dry and fine, and the sun shone" forth" auspici- ously on the interesting occasion. A little after twelve o'clock, Sir Robert and Lady Price, followed by the Vicar of the parish, and the Curate, the Rev. S. Rogers, arrived on the spot, where a numerous assemblage of the tenantry and workmen of Foxley were assembled to witness the ceremony. A short form of prayer imploring the Divine blessing on the undertaking having been read by the vicar, and the 84th Psalm said alternately by the Curate and people, the follow- ing inscription was read from the brass plate by George Moore, Esq., the Architect of the building ° In the name of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, &c. &c. &c. The ancient Church of the Parish of Yazor, being dilapidated by time, and unfit for the worship of Almighty God, the first stene of this New Church, dedicated (as the former one) to Saint Mary the Virgin, was laid by MARY ANKE ELIZABETH, wife of SIR ROBERT PRICE, of Foxley, Baronet, this Feast of the Annunciation, in the Year of our Lord, MDCCCXLIII. ROBERT PRICE, Patron. RICHARD LANE FUEEK, B.D. Yicar. GEORGE MOORE, ARCHITECT. The stone was then lowered into its resting place, and laid with the accustomed formalities by Lady Price; after which the Lord's Prayer, the Collect for the day, and Magnificat having been said, the blessing was pronounced, and Sir Ro- bert and Lady Price with their party left the ground, while long and hearty cheers hailed the commencement of this pious undertaking, not without earnest aspirations that Pro- vidence would prosper the work to its conclusion. The day was observed as a holiday throughout the parish, and the feast was kept by the masons and labourers employed upon the church, and those also on the estate, with an abundance of good cheer, provided by the liberality of the worthy Baronet of Foxley.
