L U T ON HOO. We feel much gratification in extracting from a Hertford- shire paper the following account of the presentation of an address to the Marquess of Bute from the vicar and inhabitants of Luton, on the subject of the late fire, and his Lordship's reply:— DESTRUCTION OF LUTON HOO BY FIRE.— ADDRESS TO THE MARQUESS OF BUTE. Luton, Friday night. The Marquess of Bute this day attended the Board of Guardians at Luton, where he presided as chairman and at the conclusion of the meeting, on his return to the Park, he called at the George Hotel, where a meeting was being held for the purpose of improving the fire-engine arrange- ments. His Lordship's presence in the house being communicated to those assembled, it was proposed that the opportunity should be taken for the presentation of an address which had been drawn up that morning, and was then in course of signature. His Lordship having been introduced to the meeting, the chairman, Samuel Crawley, Esq., of Stockwood, called upon the Rev. T. Sykes to read the address, which was as follows:— To the Most Honourable the Marquess of Bute. "My Lord,—We, the undersigned inhabitants of the parish of Luton and its vicinity, beg most respectfully to express to your Lordship our sincere and heartfelt sympathy at the loss your Lordship has sustained by the recent la- mentable catastrophe, which has deprived your Lordship of a most princely mansion, together with many rare and valuable specimens of art. Having long been privileged by your Lordship's kind- ness to view in your magnificent collection (unrivalled by any in the kingdom) the works of the most celebrated masters, we are sensible of the loss which we, in common r wifH the lovers of art in general, might have sustained by the calamity which has befallen your Lordship; and whilst w" feel thankful in being able to acknowledge our gratitude to an over-ruling Providence for the preservation of life, and a freedom from serious accidents during the late disas- trous fire, we at the same time congratulate your Lordship on the rescue from the flames of all those splendid pictures and the very valuable library, which has made your Lordship's mansion the admiration of the surrounding neighbourhood, as well as of all those who h'old in esteem the genius of their own, and also that of foreign countries. Hoping that your Lordship may long live in health and happiness to see the dwelling of your ancestors restored to more than its original splendour, We beg to subscribe ourselves, My Lord Marquess, Your Lordship's most obedient, And most humble servants, W. M'Douall, Vicar Samuel Oliver S. Crawley William Clark Thomas Sykes, Curate Eliz. Burr Jno. Little, Vicar of SUlldon Daniel Brown Edmund Waller Alfred I-leale John Waller Joseph Mead T. F.

Brown William Hunt Francis Cook William Gilham Richard Vyse Fred. Burr Brown, and Green Henry Burgess Thomas Foster Daniel Gilbert John Jordan Fred. Chase Welch'and Son William Phillips James Waller Francis & Charles Harrison Edward Bullock Webster B. Harrison Christopher Tomson Jeffery Lucas James Cook Robert Marsh James Kidman At the conclusion of the address, the noble Marquess, who appeared to be much gratified by this expression of their re- gard, rose and spoke as follows Gentlemen, I heartily thank you for this most kind and affectionate address. When so many of my neighbours, of all classes, have exposed their lives for the preservation of my property, I did not require this address at your hands to assure me of the sympathy which it expresses but I rejoice in the opportunity which it affords ME of publicly expressing my feelings towards the inhabitants of this parish and neighbourhood. Under the mercy of Almighty God (to which you so justly refer) I owe much to their assistance in saving from the fire a large portion of my house, and the valuable collections you describe, and which you so kindly associate with the reputation of my family. It is an unspeakable comfort to me that no life has been lost, and that no person has been seriously hurt. 1 am thus enabled to look back with unalloyed feelings of pride and gratitude to the conduct of my neighbours towards me on this trying occasion, and I shall ever do so. I cannot sit down without telling you I received a letter from a friend in a distant county this morning, and from which I collect, that some most erroneous statements re- specting the conduct of the labourers have been published in the newspapers,I do not know which. My cellars were not broken open, and from all I have heard, 1 believe there never was an occasion in which the working classes, both men and women, exerted themselves more thoroughly and cordially. I am sure you will all rise as one man, and confirm me in this belief." His Lordship immediately afterwards retired amidst warm and hearty applause. The address presented to his Lordship would have been far more numerously signed had his Lord- ship's presence in Luton been anticipated to-day but as the address was only drawn up this morning, and his Lordship's visit unexpected, it was utterly impossible for more signatures to be attached.

The following paragraph, the truth of which had been touched to us by respectable authority, recently appeared in this Journal A runaway slave, belonging to an American vessel that lay out in the Penarth roads last week, was found secreted On board a Waterford brig in the Bute Docks, which he had entered some weeks previous as an able seaman. A strong Party of the American ship's crew, having ascertained his Place of retreat, entered the brig and forcibly bore off the Unfortunate slave. Neither remonstrance nor resistance was offered on the occasion, and the Yankee trader having con- *eyed the poor fellow on board, immediately set sail for his destination. The captured slave was an excellent seaman, Otid bore upon his person many and severe marks of his help- Jfcss condition, and the brutality of his task masters." — [It is a disgrace to the people of Cardiff to have allowed this Poor fellow to be re-captured and dragged back by his tor- mentors from the sanctuary of the British soil.— 7Vme«.] Had the people of Cardiff been made aware of the facts charged in this paragraph, the disgrace which the Times 10 considerately awards them for their supineness would have keen justly laid at their door. Everybody knows the facile gullibility of the Times with regard to Welsh matters. With- out the slightest enquiry as to whether the people of Cardiff c°uld have prevented the outrage had they known it, that *°urnal, with an intrepidity of assertion, and a termagant Igour of denunciation peculiar to itifelf, Charges upon the Inhabitants of this town something like a connivance at the Capture. The Timet might have qualified its censure with the simple preposition if. Now the sentence should have run thu, ;—f/y the people of Cardiff had known this outrage not prevented it, great disgrace attaches to them." But 'he peopie 0f Cardiff could know nothing of the forcible ure, "Argal," as the grave digger in Hamlet says, > disgrace can attach to them. But this slight qualifica- tion of your peace maker," if, would not suit the slashing j of the Timer. With 20,000 readers at its heels,'it can \If'ord to be independent of the conventional courtesies of Journalism, and would rather strike first and then hear. The c*pture of the slave was effected in a few minutes, and the resisting creature hurried away. There was no opposition, either on the part of the poor slave, or on that of the owners Of the vessel in which he was secreted. No alarm was con- Sequently given, and the authorities of Cardiff had not become iogllizant of the fact until after the Yankee vessel had sailed. It Was then too late to take any steps for the recapture of the lilre. Had this daring aggression on the sanctity of the rltish soil been brought under the notice of the authorities, 't is needless to say that the most prompt and efficacious steps "'ould have been taken to repel the outrage. In reference to the abov« it appeared that Mr. C. Vachell j** the course of the week, received two letters, one from rjr. Joseph St urge, and the other from Mr. Price. On Monday, all e sitting of the magistrates, Mr. Vachell stated purport of these letters. b The first was from Mr. Joseph Sturge to Mr. Joseph T. *rice, Neath Abbey, South Wales. My dear friend, I beg to call thy prompt attention to the kidnap- }lIng of a black man, of Cardiff, on board an American ship, 1 !|<ler circumstances that must disgrace the whole Principality |! it pass unnoticed, and attempts are not made to recover 1 fi'111' thou send to inquire the full particulars, and if v)°u couldst possibly let our friend Lewis Topham, of New j °rk, know them, with the name of the ship, it is possible lli Uiav get it before she arrives in America, it thy letter £ °es i,y the steam packet which sails from Liverpool the 19th. ^'ease also send particulars to New Broad-street., London, Vt they may represent it to our Government and the •fieriean Ambassador. Thou wilt see t!ie account of it in 1Ilrl10st all the London papers. With love, thy affectionate friend, "Birmingham, 11-16, 1843. JOS. STURGE." The second was from Mr. J. T. Price, of Neath Abbey, 0 Mr. Charles Vachell, Cardiff. Neath Abbey, 17-11, 1843. My dear friend, j On my return I find the enclosed letter from ..0,eph Sturge, may I beg thy prompt and best attention to 'e case. I never heard of it before. Suppose thou wilt, .i the assistance of those who may have heard about it, be 'e to trace it out, and either send me the result, or write Joseph Sturge proposes, but at any rate let me hear the toault, With many thanks for thy hospitality, I am, -1 Thy sincere friend, JOSEPH T. PRICE," "W. Woodman may be able to help thee perhaps." he third was from Mr. J. Beaumont, London, to Mr. J. tice,lneath Abbey. No. 27, New Broad-street, 11 f 17th 11th month, 1843. 1 "My dear friend, Joseph T. Price, lb "I have sent to thee this evening a copy of our last t Importer, in which thou wilt see an article mentioning the i W?ibly takinS from on board an English vessel, at Cardiff, i W?ibly taking from on board an English vessel, at Cardiff, t!¡q conveying on board an American ship, a black seaman, (0l" the purpose of restoring him to cruel slavery. We think '^ediate ?iotice should be taken of it to our Government, perhaps to the American Ambassador. Could'st thou 1 lain the name of the vessels that the poor black man was t1 H, 'en from and conveyed on board of, with any other partic- s possible the urgency of the case will apologise for my Ilbling thee, and waiting thy reply I am sincerely, Thy affectionate friend, "J. BEAUMONT." n ,*he mayor expressed his regret that an early intimation of j18 forcible apprehension had not been given to Mr. Stock- kj/e> who would have instantly taken the necessary steps to ( event it. The unfortunate man would have been pro- even at the risk of life, for the moment the slave put n8 foot on British ground that moment he was free. From (,e account of the quiet manner in which the capture had made, it was evident that it was a case which the local w^horities in Cardiff could not controul. The abduction v°Uld appear to have been not more forcible than instanta- a°U8, but it was absurd to say that any disgrace attached to people of Cardiff for an occurrence which, considering v e distance of the Bute docks from town they could not 08gibly prevent. Charles Vachell, with an energy and promptitude ich reflect credit on his humanity, has taken the affair in and from the following statement it will be seen how L iciously he has acquitted himself of the commission ^Usted "to him. 'The American barque Altorf, for New York, Captain I iv°tardus, about six weeks ago was lying at Newport, taking f,tt t4ilroad iron, a black man, of the name of John, escaped > 1,1 her, found his way to Cardiff, entered on board the 'A gle, Captain Edwards, of Waterford, where he was kept L^ealed below two days and nights, told the crew he had j, ei» cruelly used by Captain B. and his mate, both on the l sSage an(j at Newport, had been beaten with the capstan *> *nd shewed on his person marks of severe injuries. Did (ji hear him say whether he was a slave or not, but he com- K^ified much of ill usage. (The mate and crew of the Eagle OUght he was a slave.) After John had been on board the L*8le a short time, a policeman from Newport presented f^self, gajii he was come to search the vessels in the dock tjA* black man that had stolen a watch. John was shewn fth and he was asked to take him into custody. This he Ke policeman) declined, observing he was not the man. H,0*11 ^is time the American captain appears to have known to find the poor fellow, for after he had completed his iio ng, and left the port of Newport, he anchored at Penarth landed himself with his mate, and went direct on the Eagle, and demanded the man; the crew denied but strange to say suffered the Americans to search to 'r 'vessel, and poor John was found by the mate hid under sails below. When brought on deck Captain I?. VA, but strange to say suffered the Americans to search Vessel, and poor John was found by the mate hid under sails below. When brought on deck Captain I?. tended of him why he had run away 1 "because you | me so badly was his reply. Captain Edwards N'lited of the Americans whether the man was a slave or £ Captain B. answered he is free. They wanted a rope n..le their captive, it was refused. They took him off in i boat to the t>ar<jue. He was eeea the following day on t board the Altorf, by John Jenkins, pilot; Jenkins heard Captain B. again question John why he had run away.— f. I thought." said he," aftllr I had landed at Newport I thottld be a free man." Since writing I have seen Mr. Stockdale, superintendent of the police here, he says the Newport policeman never reported himself at the station, and must have acted without authority. Witnesses to the above facts, THOMAS MORGAN, ~i labourers JOlIN WIHTE, r on the JAMES FITZGERALD,) Dock. JOHN JENKINS, pilot. THE THEATRE.—The entertainments this week, as well from the character of the pieces, as the very spirited manner in which they have been performed, have given satisfaction. The forte of the company lies in light, amusing comedy, and considering the great demand on the physical and mental exertions of a rather limited corps, in no one instance has there been a failure. This, however, is mere negative praise. There is much that is positively good in the general ability of the performances. ANGEL, in the" Dancing Barber," on Monday night, kept the house in roars of laughter; for, indeed, not to laugh at, and with this excellent comedian, exceeds all power of face. We know of no finer farce extant than HIS face and if brought out at Old Drury,' it could hardly fail to hnve a LONG run—nor would the owner of that most plastic phiz be put out of countenance by the fact. ARTAUD'S industry and inimitable drollery, have con- firmed him as a deserving favourite with the town. His bumper benefit," on Thursday night, is the best proof of the justice of our appreciation. SILVER is genuine, dramatic metal. His Sailor," in the MIDDY ASHORE, some nights since, was a performance not easily to be forgotten. He looked and rolicked the jolly tar in capital style. MULFORD is the most testy and respectable of Old English Gentlemen.' For consummate ease, vivacity, and a thorough knowledge of dramatic proprieties, BUCKINGHAM is every inch a gentle- man. His dressing for character, is highly ornate, without being garish. FRAZER is bustling and respectable, but would not lose much by a little flirtation with the Graces, ladies that even in the country are much admired. If RFDFEARN could get rid of his nerves, and give full play to an excellent voice, he could not fail to succeed in his -very respectable1 efforts to please. Mrs. MACNAMARA is always correct, without being cold, and looks and plays the termagant or sentimental old lady, with propriety. Mis. ubiquity on the boards is excellent. If people have not yet admired Miss PLOWMAN, as a very arch and piquant personation of a very agreeable hoyden, with her low, sweet laugh, seductive en bon point, and other interesting ajremens, they may be quite satisfied that such things are to be seen, almost nightly. Miss MACREADV'S benefit is fixed for Monday night, when an excellent treat may he expected. THE HERO COACH. —By an advertisement in another column, it will be seen that in consequence of alterations in the Northern and Liverpool trains, the hours of departure of this coach have undergone a corresponding change. CARDIFF INFIRMARY. -We mentioned a few weeks since, that £5,000 had been paid to the trustees of this charity, by the executors of ih- lute Daniel Jones, Esq., of Bellupré- we have now the gratiiication of stating, that another £1,000 has also been paid through the same channel, and it is pro- bable that a further payment will be made. In addition of a legacy of £2,000, Mr. Jones made the trustees of the infir- mary residuary legatees. It ought not to be forgotten, that the infirmary was built by Mr. Jones in his life time, at the cost A tablet has lately been erected in Saint Hilary Church, to the memory of the late Daniel Jones, Esquire, with the following suitable illseription: In memory of DANIEL JONES, of Beaupre, Esquire, Deputy-Lieutenant of the county of Glamorgan, who departed this life on the 19th day of September, 1841, aged 88 years. Endowed with a vigor- ous understanding and an active mind, he exercised his talents in a way highly honourable to himself and beneficial to others. His munificent donation to the Cardiff Infirmary, of which institution he may be regarded as the founder— testify, both the benevolence of his heart, and the judicious care by which his bounty was directed. The last effort of his long and useful life was made chiefly to declare to an aged relative, the purpose of his mind, to restore, in the person of the son, the ancient patrimony of their family. That son desires to commemorate the generous act, and to word his gratitude by this humble memorial—" Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord." A rumour has been in circulation, which we adverted to in our last, that a special commission will be held again in this town. after the present term. We understand that there is not the least foundation for the report. Lord and Lady James Stuart, accompanied by Mr. Tighe, recently visited the union workhouse. His Lordship and party were conducted through the different wards of the es- tablishment by the housekeeper. Lord James examined the rations for the inmates, which he tasted and found to be very good. His Lordship also expressed himself much pleased with the neatness and cleanliness of every thing around him. CARDIFF DORCAS SOCIETY.—The following report has been lately circulated among the subscribert. The amount of subscriptions for the past year, was £4.1 Os. 6d.; and there is a balance due to the treasurer of £1 15s. 6d. Report:—"The committee have much pleasure in laying before the subscribers their tenth annual report, and stating their satisfaction at having witnessed the advantages result- ing to the poor of this town from the undiminished support which the society continues to receive. All possible means have been used to avoid unnecessary expense and prevent imposition. The committee beg to state their conviction of the good which would result by the continuance of the rule obliging the poor to pay part in proportion to their ability, not to exceed half the value of the garment. In consequence, however, of the extreme distress existing amongst the poor, the committee feel it their duty to distribute the garments gratis for the present year. The thanks of the committee are due to the ladies who have kindly assisted in making the garments. The subscriptions are now due and would be thankfully received." Distributed since last report—40 gowns, 52 petticoats, 55 chemises, 12 sheets, 44 frocks, 38 aprons, 6 pairs of hose, 12 shawls, 17 handkerchiefs, 12 pin- afores, 37 yards of flannel, 13 sheets, 6 blankets, 3 counter- panes, and 2 bedgowns. By an advertisement in another column it will be seen that a public meeting of the Inhabitants of Cardiff is fixed for Monday. This will afford the people of Cardiff an opportu- nity of evincing the extent of that sympathy which has been so widely and deeply felt for the calamity of the disastrous fire at Luton lloo. CARDIFF INFANT SCHOOL.—The annual general meeting of this institution will be held, as appears by the advertise- ment, on the 28th inst. CARDIFF FARMERS' CLUE. —The next monthly meeting of this club will be held on Saturday next, the 2nd of Decem- ber. The subject for discussion i, On the best method of laying down arable land to pasture." We also beg to call the attention of our readers to an advertisement in another column, for the establishment of a "sample corn exchange," to be held in the Farmers' Club-rooms. The present incon- venient mode of selling corn in this town, has been long compltined of; and we heartily trust, that this attempt to remove the grievance, will be supported by the farmers and dealers of this town and neighbourhood. WESLEYAN MISSIONARY SOCIETY.—A numerous and highly respectable meeting of this body assembled on Mon- day evening in Trinity-street chapel, in this town. The object of the meeting was, to procure subscriptions in aid of the missionary labours in the South Sea Islands. The Rev. Mr, Pearson presided. Resolutions dechratOlyof the ob- jects of the meeting were effectively spoken to by the rev. gentlemen who usually take a part in those proceedings. The Rev. C. Tucker, in his address, gave a highly interest- ing narrative of the social and religious condition of the inhabitants of the Island of Fejee. The interest in the rev. gentleman's address was not a little heightened hgrthe detail of his own personal experience among those barbari- ans, and the ''hair breath 'scapes" which he and his fellow-labourers respectively encountered in their efforts to spread the light of Christianity among them. For the purpose of authenticating his narrative, Mr. Tucker pro- duced specimens of the idols URllally worshipped by the in- habitants, with specimens of their wardrobes. The idols were stunted, unshapen little urchins, and, for coarseness of manufacture, were not a little illustrative of the barbarism of the islanders. At the close of the meeting the sum of £ 11 was collected, in aid of the funds of the society. CARDIFF POLICE,—WEDNESDAY, Nov. 22. [Before the Mayor.] John Morris, a butcher, was fine 20s. and costs, for ob- structing the foot pavement by publicly exposing meat out- side his shop. Richard Rowe Wortlev, a delicate poor man who sells fruit, charged Wrn. Owens, a fireman, with assaulting him. Wortley, it appeared, went, a few days since, to the Globe Inn, to sell his fruit. While waiting for customers there, the defendant commenced handling him, and took some un- pleasant liberties with him. There Wortley remonstrated, when Owen commenced beating him with a cat, and ulti- mately knocked him down. Owen was a stout man, Wortley a feeble and delicate man, and the bench under the circumstances, fined the defendant JE4 10s. 6d., who, in default of payment, was committed for two months. William Lewis, was fined 10s. for assaulting Thomas Lewis. The assault originated in one misunderstanding, which the bench was not disposed to admit as a justification. Fined 10s. In default of payment he was committed for 14 days. David Yorathi of Crockherbtown, was fined 2s. 6d., for wheeling coals on the footway. AN ACROSTIC TO MISS MACREADY. M ay hallowed Genius on the scroll of fame, I n radiant letters, trace thy gifted name, S tamped with each perfect beauty of the mind, S ecure in powers-attractive as refined— M ay faultless innocence around thee twine, A nd every virtue in thy bosom shine C onsciously good, with guileless truth thy guide, It ich in each lovely grace, and gift beside, E ver be thine a pathway bright and fair, A glorious track of sunlight rich and rare, D eeply with bliss be its pure beauty wove Y et guiding thy young heart to hopes above. Nov. 20th, 1843. M. C. L. > Notwithstanding the severity of the gale on Monday night, comparatively little injury was sustained by the shipping in IPT the roads. Some spars were blown away, and a few small boats ran foul of each other, and were bilged in; with the exception of these casualties, the vessels lying off Penarth rode out the storm in safety.
DEANERY OF LLANDAFF. At the Court at Windsor, the 10th day of November, 1843, present the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty in council. Whereas the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England have, in pursuance of an act passed in the sessions of parliament held in the third and fourth years of her Ma- jesty's reign, intituled An act to carry into effect, with certain modifications, the Fourth Report of the Commis- sioners of Ecclesiastical Duties and Revenues," and of another act, passed in the last session of parliament, intituled An act for regulating the Cathedral Churches of Wales," duly prepared and laid before her Majesty in council a scheme, bearing date the 9th day of this instant November, in the words following, that is to say:- We, the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England, in pursuance of an act passed in the third and fourth years of j'our Majesty's reign, intituled 'An act to carry into effect, with certain modifications, the Fourth Report of the Com- missioners of Ecclesiastical Duties and Revenues,' and of another act, passed in the last session of parliament, intituled An act for regulating the Cathedral Churches of Wales,' have prepared, and now humbly lay before your Majesty in council the following scheme, for separating the archdeaconry of Llandaff from the deanery of Llandaff. Whereas by the first recited act it is enacted that the Archdeacon of Llandaff should, from the passing thereof, be also Dean of the Cathedral Church of Llandaff. "And whereas by the secondly recited act it is enacted, that the dignity and office of Archdeacon of Llandaff might be separated from the said deanery, provided that such separa- tion should not take place before the then next vacancy of the said deanery, without the consent of the then dean. And whereas the said deanery has since become and now is vacant; We, therefore, humbly recommend and propose that the archdeaconry and deanery of Llandaff shall forthwith be disunited, and become from henceforth two separate aaid distinct dignities 4nd offices. And we further recommend and propose, that nothing herein contained shall prevent us from recommending and proposing other measures relating to the archdeaconry and deanery of Llandaff, or either of them, especially for the en- dowment thereof respectively, in conformity with the pro- visions of the said recited acts, or either of them, or of any other act of parliament. And whereas notice of the said scheme has been duly given to the Lord Bishop of Llandafl, and to the Chapter of Llandaff, respectively, and no objection has been made thereto And whereas the said scheme has been approved by her Majesty in council; now, therefore, her Majesty, by and with the advice of her said council, is pleased hereby to ratify the said scheme, and to order and direct that the same. and every part thereof, shall be effectual in law immediately from and after the time when this order shall have been duly published in the London Gazette," pursuant to the said a,-t and her Majesty, by and with the like advice, is pleased hereby to direct that this order be forthwith registered by the registrar of the diocese of Llandaff. WM. L. BATHURST. —*+*•- WINTER ASSIZE.—Rumours are again rife, as to the pro- bability of there being a general gaol delivery in the course of next month. Circulars from the Home Office have been sent to various gaols in the kingdom, to ascertain the num- ber of prisoners already committed for trial, which is pre- sumed to be a preparatory step to the issuing of a commission.
BRIDGEND. We understand that the storm of Monday last did con- siderable damage in the neighbourhood of Bridgend, but the houses in the town received but little injury. A few tiles, which, probably, were loose before, were blown off the roofs of some of the houses. Several panes of glass were blown out of the windows of Dunriven Castle, and broken to pieces. On Monday last the horse of Thomas Powell, farmer, of Angelton, took fright when in a cart, which was coming to Bridgend for coal, under the care of a servant boy about twelve or thirteen years of age. The horse gallopped along- the road about a mile, and bolted by the new Town-hall. The boy, much to be commended, took the horse home and. left the cart behind, thereby not asking another fright. Farmers and others should be on their guard as to sending spirited horses in carts, especially under the care of boys. We are informed that not long ago an empty cart, drawn by such a horse, went over the same boy, who received then much injury. On Saturday last, as Mr. John Thomas, carrier, from Coworidge, was coming with some goods in his small waggon with one horse, near the turnpike-gate, Bridgend, the horse took fright in consequence of the linch-pin working off from one of the foremost wheels, which came off, when the horse proceeded at a furious rate through the main street, dragging the waggon on three wheels, and stopped near the Wyndham Arms Inn, at which place the waggon usually stayed. We are glad to state that no injury was done in the horse's course. Mr. John Thomas fell from the waggon, and an empty hamper fell on him. Providentially the waggon did not go over him, and he therefore received but little injury. Captain Napier was by the Wyndham Arms at the time, and most promptly rendered his assistance by holding the reins while they extricated the horse from the vehicle. The animal only received a slight injury on one of the hind hoofs. BRIDGEND POLICE.—SATURDAY, Nov. 18. [Before M. P. Traherne, Esq., and the Rev. H. L. Blosse.] David James, a haulier, of Maesteg, was charged with feloniously stealing a number of carpenters' tools, the pro- perty of Gwillin Thomas and Thomas Thomas, farmers, of Blangarrw, in the parish of Llangainor, in this county. Thomas Thomas stated that on Tuesday, the 14th instant, he went to the workshop which he and his brother had be- longing to their farm. He occasionally worked as blacksmith there, and his brother as carpenter and wheelwright, for their own use. On the morning in question he found the door of the shop open, and almost all the carpenters' tools stolen therefrom. He applied for a search warrant to search the prisoner's (his brother-in-law) house but he and the constable, John Jones, could not find any of the articles missing there. The tools were placed before the court, and William Thomas swore that they were his. The prisoner, in his defence, stated that his wife gave lodgings to a man last Monday, He was called John of the Green," who said he was going to work that morning. On the Wednesday following he came for his clothes. On Thursday molding my wife came to me (I was then with my work) and said that a pack of his was left behind. I suspected him then to be a bad man. I went home and saw the pack of tools. I said I would have nothing to do with them; that I would throw them out. I put them into the old house for him to fetch them whenever he wished to do so. The man since has run away. David James was then committed to Cardiff gaol, to take his trial at the next quarter sessions. NEATH TOWN 'HAtli^-Friday, November 17.—[Before Howl Gwyn, ahd Griffith Lewellyn, Esqrs.] William Jenkins, labourer, from the parish of Langedeirn, in the county of Carmarthen, was fully committed to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions for this county, charged with having feloniously stolen one pewter half-pint of the value of 2s., the property of Mr. John Smith, landlord of the Mackworth Arms, Neath. Mr. Hargreaves conducted the case for the prosecution' Evan Jones was brought up charged with having violently assaulted John Jones, both from the parish of Languick, by striking him on the head with a stone. It appeared that they were both fluarrymen, working in the same place, and a dispute arose respecting some flags, which the defendant accused the complainant of stealing, the complainant no doubt, as he admitted, made use of some aggravating words, and Mr. Jones, thought he was justly right in committing the assault, the magistrates felt a wish that the affair should be settled out of court; the parties retired, but to no purpose, after which the case was heard and it was clearly made against the defendant, aud he was ordered to pay a fine of 50s., including the costs, or go to Swansea House of Correction for one month, the fine was paid very reluctantly. Mr. Hargreaves appeared on behalf of the defendant. John Thomas, labourer, from the parish of Llamsamlet, was charged with cutting a quantity of peat the property of the Earl of Jersey, the offence was proved by Mr. Preece of Codiallt, and the defendant in this case was fined 20s., including costs, or one week's imprison- ment, the fine was not paid. William John, labourer, from the parish of Michaelstone Lower, was fined in the sum of jE5, or two weeks imprisonment, with hard labour, charged with having in July last, sold a certain quantity of beer, without being duly licensed. Mr. Sexton, the supervisor for the district called two witnesses, who clearly proved the charge, it is to be hoped that others will take warning, as it is a very common practice in this as well as in many other places, th« practice is commonly called Cwrw Bach. SWANSEA MECHANICS' INSTITUTION—The annual general meeting of the above institute was held on Monday evening last, at the society rooms, in Goat-street. The chair having been taken by one of the members, the meeting proceeded to the election of the different officers for the ensuing year. Lewis Llewelyn Dillwyn, Esq., president, G. G. Bird,M.D., Esq., and Richard Aubrey, Esq., vice-presidents, were unan- imously- re-elected; the following persons were chosen on the committee:—Mr. John Jenkins, M. A., Mr. James Rogers, Mr. Moore, Mr. Holder, Mr. Richard Evans, and Mr. David Lewis. Mr. John Lewis, printer, was solicited to undertake the office of secretary to the institution. This laudable society, we are informed, numbers about 120, members, and possesses a neat library, constantly increasing, replete with the most popular works on Chemistry, Biography, Mineralogy. Geology, and Mechanics, when the artisan, after the harassing and laborious toils of the day, may, by perusing the different books, avail himself of the suggestions which the experience of other men may furnish, and learn that knowledge facilitates labour, & will be enabled to understand the theory of the work he is helps to complete. Thus, by acquiring such practical information, he may keep pace with those who. by the acquisition of useful knowledge, are advancing in respectability, influence, and worth.
MERTHYR. The Hong Kong tea mart at Merthyr will, as appears by an advertisement, be opened on Saturday, the 25th instant' by the indnstrious and spirited proprietor. A WIT.—•' Go and wash your hands, you dirty little fellow," said a person to a young lad during the time when water was scarce here last summer. it is not enough for the firemen," replied the witty urchin. OUR ANNUAL FAIR. on Saturday, scarcely deserves the name,-there were only 8 cows and 3 or 4 horses altogether offered for sale, whereas, considering that we are surrounded by hills where thousands of sheep and ponies are grazing, besides cattle almost without number, Merthyr fair should be the best in Wales. Once a year, at least, our town from Coedycymmer to Plymouth, and from Nantygwenith to Penydarran, ought to be completely ciammed with sheep, lambs, pigs, horses, ponies, &c. &c. &c., and the utmost publicity should be given throughout the united kingdom of the same, that dealers of all grades and description may attend. Our tradesmen's rents and taxes are enormously high at such dead times," and they should realize a year's rent at least at an ANNUAL FAIR, and they would too, if something deserving the name were held in such a densely populated district. We recommend a public meeting to be held forthwith to take the subject into serious consideration, that Merthyr may be as celebrated for its fair, (not a vanity fair) as it is for its iron, and its immense population. If November is not the best time for its holding, let another time be fixed upon, and the public prints of England and Wales duly announce the most suitable time. We omit to mention Dowlais, as that place could be united to the WAIN, where excellent fairs are held already. Not less a sum than £20,000 should be exchanged at such a fair. STORM.—We do not remember such a storm as occurred here on Sunday night. Tiles, and even the entire roofs of houses, the troughs of the barracks at Dowlais, and the con- siderable damage to a pit by the Great Pond are proofs of its disastrous effects. If so on land, what has become of our brethren at sea, and the immense property on the mighty deep." POVERTY to a considerable extent prevails in the iron manufacturing districts, and we are informed that deaths are increasing weekly. MORE ACCIDENTS FROM FIRE DAMP.—We regret to an nounce that .Henry Morgan and his brother were dreadfully burnt at Cwmcanned pit, Cyfarthfa, at 7 A.M. on Tuesday, so that the former died shortly after. At an inquest held on his body, at the Angel Inn, in the evening, before Wm. Davies, Esq., coroner, the verdict of "Accidental death" was .returned by a respectable jury. Two other men were very severely burnt at Plymouth works, at 9 the same morn- ing. Humanity demands that the utmost scrutiny should be exercised in these revolting and heart-rending affairs. If science has discovered a remedy, in the name of poor widows, and fatherless children we ask, why not make use of EFFECTS OF STRONG DRINKS.—It is reported that a man, in this town, when far gone with liquor, on Sunday last, struck his wife, on her head, that even her life was for some time despaired of. MERTHYR POLICE,—WEDNESDAY 15. [Before T. W. Hill, and G. R. Morgan, Esqrs.] Thomas Griffiths, landlord of the George, beer house, Merthyr, appeared to a summons obtained against him by Mr Superintendent Davies, for keeping his house open for the sale of beer &c., before the hour of one o'clock p.m., on Sunday, the 12th inst. Charge proved by Sergeant J. Hume fined Is. and costs. Morgan Jones, landlord of the Guest Arms, beer house, Dowlais, appeared to a summons obtained against him by the same complainant, for a similar offence on the same day. Charge proved by P.C., 19, W. Parker fined Is. and costs. Morgan Jenkins, landlord of the Vulcan and Friendship, public house, Dowlais, also appeared to a summons obtained against him by the same complainant, for keeping his house open for the sale of beer &c., during the hours of divine service, also on the 12th inst., contrary to the tenor of his licence. Charge proved by P.C., W. Parker fined Is. and costs. Martha Powell, landlady of the Mount Pleasant, beer house, Dowlais, was charged by the Hon.W.Chitwynd, ensign in the 73rd Regiment of foot, now stationed at Dowlais, with assisting to conceal in her house a deserter from the above regiment, with his firelock, and other regimental ac- coutrements. The penalty for such an offence being £20, without mitigation, and the charge being fully sustained against her she was fined in that sum, and allowed six weeks to pay the same. It is hoped this will serve as a warning to others not to offend in the like manuer, as no doubt the parties were ignorant of the penalty thus incurred by acting as they did. A few other unimportant cases were settled out of court. MONDAY 20. [Before T. W. Hill, Esq.] A club case, and a case of forgery, were ordered to stand over until Friday; parties admitted to bail. INQUESTS.—On the ]6th inst., an inquest was held at the Dowlais Inn, Dowlais, before W. Davies, Esq., coroner, on view of the body of William Evans, aged four years, who was killed by a tram on the preceding day. Verdict Acci- dental death." On the same day and place, before the same coroner, an inquest was held on view of the body of Thomas Williams, collier, who died from injuries sustained by an ex- plosion of fire damp. This was one of the seven unfortu.. nate men who were burnt at Cwmbargoed coal pit, noticed in this journal of last week. THE REWARD OF PIETY.—A few friends of the church at Merthyr, feeling the loss they should sustain by the de- parture of the Rev. Thomas Harris from among them, felt disposed to show their gratitude to him, and also the high opinion they have of the activity and zeal which he has manifested in the discharge of his duties since his residence amongst them, resolved to do so by presenting him with a purse. It was a source of great pleasure to them to observe, during his short sojourn there, that the congregation more than doubled and they were in earnest hope that his ap- pointment would have been a permanent one, but they were doomed to disappointment, he having left on Tuesday for Liverpool. He preached his farewell sermon on Monday evening last, in Welsh and English; and we never recollect seeing so large a congregation in church upon any similar occasion. We believe a petition, signed by the principal tradesmen and friends of the church, has been presented to the bishop, praying him to exert his influence in trying to get Mr. Harris back again. The subscription, up to Tues- day, we are informed, amounted to about £ t8. -(From a Correspondent.) A FAREWELL SBRMON.-On Monday last. Nov. 20th, at the parish church of Merthyr Tydvil, the Rev. Thomas Harris delivered his farewell sermon to a dense and an at- tentive congregation, who appeared to be deeply affected at the Ion of their pious and humble pastor. The reverend gentleman "chose for his text the appropriate words of the Apostle Paul, 2nd-Cor., 13th c., v. 11.—" Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you." After having entered into the explanation of some of the terms contained in the text, and having shown the attention due to the regulation of life and conduct, as bearing an eternal impress, in obedience to the laws of God and that it is not only the duty, but the privilege and happiness of every Christian to obey. He went on to exhort his audience to live in peace and unity. He dwelt with some length on the pernicious effects of pride and enmity, as being the most effectual agencies in the promotion of the works of darkness; justly deprecating the unhappy divisions which continue to rend the Church of Christ, and showing, in opposition, the happy effects which would necessarily re- suit from peace and unity. The pious preacher concluded by recommending his hearers, in the most simple and affec- tionate manner, to the peace and grace of Almighty God, and by repeatedly asking a question, which must deeply interest every man Christianly taught, viz.—" How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation 1" The great increase in the congregations during the short period of Mr. Harris's ministry in this place is a sufficient evidence how his labours were appreciated and as a testimony of sincere attachment, his friends made him a liberal present of a "purse" on the morning of his departure.
NEWPORT. On Thursday, Nov. 16th, a special meeting of the Mon- mouthshire Education Board was held at Newport, for the purpose of appointing a master to the Diocesan school in that town, in the place of the late Rev. J. Francis. Sir Digby Mackworth, Bart., in the chair, and very many of the com- mittee were present. Several applications had been received, but the Rev. Andrew Anderson was selected by an unanimous vote. His testimonials were of the highest character, and emanated from persons well qualified to judge of the peculiar requisites for the important office ;—amongst others Messrs. Townley and Edwards, the well known masters of King's College, London, each bore the strongest testimony to the abilities, character, and attainments of Mr. Anderson. The appointment has since received the sanction of the Lord Bishop of the Diocese, and the rev. gentleman will enter upon his duties immediately after the next Christmas vacation. The late Mrs. Aspinall's delightful residence, in Green Park, Bath, has been purchased (through the medium of Messrs. English and Son,) by T. C. Hooper, Esq., of Caerleon Priory, Monmouthshire. NEWPORT POLICE,—MONDAY, Nov. 20. [Before the Mayor, J. S. Allfrey, Esq., Thos. Hughes, Esq., and Richard Mullock, Esq.] Charles Chapman, was charged with obtaining money under false pretence, from one John Williams. Chapman did not appear,orders were given to apprehend him. Elisabeth Franklyn, was charged with stealing 18s. 6d., from Joseph Pearce, a caulker from Cardiff. Case dismissed for want of evidence—complainant to pay costs. William Hewlitt, was charged with being drunk and dis- orderly. BRECON INFIRMARY.—Nov. 21, 1843. ————— IX. OUT.

To the Editor of the Advertiser and Guardian. SIR,-As your correspondent B" seems really anxious to learn who texted the list of subscribers alluded to in his letter, I beg to inform him that the writer is Mr. Rhys L. Davis, nephew to Mr. Rhys Davis, post-master, of Merthyr, and at present clerk to J. W. Russell, Esq., solicitor. B's"first epistle did not" escape the party's notice but he must have expected that my young friend would hesitate, from motives of delicacy, before he allowed his name to be made public; and more particularly so, as he was totally ignorant of B's" reasons for making the inquiry. From the tenor of your correspondent's letter, however, I conclude that his motive can be no other than mere curiosity and therefore see no impropriety in furnish- ing him with the wished-for-information. I am, Sir, Yours respectfully, A FRIEND. Merthyr, Nov. 21, 1843. — THE TAFF VALE RAILWAY. TO THE SHAREHOLDERS IN THE TAFF VALE RAILWAY. GENTLEMEN,—Permit me, a sincere friend and well. wisher, to address you, and through you, the other great interests with which yours are so intimately connected, that it is quite impossible to consider them correctly apart. The great mistake has been, hitherto, that there has been not only no concord between these vast and important interests, but a discord as unwise as it has been expensive and disadvanta- geous to each, and all the parties concerned. In order that we may endeavour to form a more correct judgment, which may lead to more salutary action in future, let us bring before you the various concerns which appear to me to be directly connected with that, in which many of you have invested property to a very large amount—while others, not so wealthy, are still more deeply interested from the amount of their shares, being a large portion of the savings of lives spent in honest and hard industry. It is not a very remote period since those hills, which now afford employment and food to many thousands, were un- broken, and may add, nearly unapproachable by man but that most active, intelligent, and persevering of all animals, discovered, that while others were seeking in far distant regions the mines containing the (so called) precious metals, they had at home, in their own neglected hills, abundance of those minerals which most conduce to the happiness and welfare of man, and which needed but the active application of his talent, industry, and capital, to be converted into gold. I need not tell you, who are better acquainted than I am with this district, that these talents, that industry, and an immense amount of capital, have been most actively and perseveringly applied, and most successfully to this truly important purpose. While those hills remain, the names of Crawshay, Tait, Guest, and many others, will be remem- bered as connected chiefly with this mighty monument, and originating the means of not only making" our merchants as princes," but founding the fortunes of thousands, and the means of existence to tens of thousands. I would next point to you the vast and rapidly-increasing coal trade, established by similar active energy and capital combined; and by which an article, called justly, in'refer- ence to its great benefits to man, the black diamond," has been so abundantly procured, as to nearly rival in importance the great iron trade. Though these great staple trades of this district have called others into existence, and cherished them, yet they are so dependent of their great parents, that I only name them to show that the success and happiness of very many men and families, hang upon the continuing prosperity of those great original, and originating undertakings. I would further draw your attention to the primitive mode of transmission from the hills to the shipping place at Cardiff; for at that period, it could scarcely be honoured with the name of Port. I believe some still survive, who remember the singular, jarring sound made by the rattling of the iron bars on the mules backs, as they carried their valuable but painful burthens, from the furnace to the fleet, if we may so call the few small craft that waited in the Cardiff river to convey it for transhipment to more favoured harbours. WeU, a few years elapse, and the weary mules are relieved; and the third great and important interest, which I shall bring to your notice, was established by the same combina- tion of activity, industry, and capital—the Glamorganshire Canal. Indeed, I believe I should have given it precedence of the second, the coal trade, for I presume the canal must have been the means of originating it, at least, as an export trade. However, this is only important as showing, that in every right-thinking and just ,milld, the oLD (as it is now called,) Glamorganshire Canal, should be had in very grate- ful remembrance, and her fair claims on those who have been greatly benefited by her, should not becit sight of or forgotten. Gentlemen, the vast extent of the two great leading trades become, as you all know, too important to be fully carried out by the Glamorganshire Canal, delays in shipment were so constantly occurring, that we were in great danger of losing our foreign trade altogether, and having our home exports greatly lessened, by the minerals being raised, and prepared so much more rapidly than they could be conveyed to the parties ordering them. This was, I believe, the opinion of all interested, at the important period when that truly noble intention of the most noble Marquess, the pro- prietor of, probably, the largest mineral property in the wfttfd, was made known,—" That be would himself construct U docks, that should be adequate to, and worthy of, the great trade of Cardiff." To all who have seen the Bute Ship Canal, I need not say, how fully and faithfully the noble Marquess has re- deemed his pledge. Pardon me while on this point, referring to the day on which this splendid creation of this truly noble man was opened, as one of the happiest of my life. For, by a most extraordinary coincidence, the first ship, of considerable size, (upwards of 1,000 tollS.) that entered the dock gates, with a full cargo of timber, was the Manlius," never having cast anchor from leaving Quebec to her entrance where, but for the noble Marquess, she never could have come. She was chartered by the company with which my name is associated, in expectation of the new docks; and, strangely, arrived the very first moment she could enter them. Pray pardon this digression, and return to the important consideration of the fifth great interest yours, which, as well as all and each of others, should be considered as ONE. By the Bute Ship Canal, the iron and coal trades, and through them all others connected with them, were enabled to invite ships of the largest class to load in safety, without, as hitherto, having either to take their cargoes, exposed to the galea of the Bristol Channel, or having to receive them at other ports from smaller vessels trading to Cardiff; but another, difficulty was felt, and again overcome, by the same means, combined capital and energy, and the U Taff Vale Railway" was the result. You all know how far public opinion justified the necessity for this undertaking, in the great anxiety manifested, by not only the inhabitants of this district, but by the wise merchants of Bristol, to become shareholders; and I will venture to assert, that viewing the vast importance of the trades established, the amount of capital invested, the mineral property possessed between Merthyr and Cardiff, the princely outlay contemplated, and these in operation by the Marquess of Bute, that no railway in the kingdom was ever commenced with better founded prospects of success than the TaffVale Railway. Gentlemen, would that I could congratulate you on & prospect so justly entertained, having been as fairly realized after a lapse of more than seven years, since the act was obtained for this important undertaking. Although not now a shareholder, I took the liberty, as an old friend and well-wisher, to attend the special general meeting, held in Cardiff, on Wednesday last, and believe me when I state, that feelings of the most sincere regret filled my mind, while I perceive that what should have been discussed as a. matter of most important business, was almost lost sight of, except as one of personal feeling, and recrimination. But my only object in presuming to address you is, to point out why I believe your affairs have not been, hitherto, prosperous; and why I as sincerely hope that they may yet become po. In the former part of this address, I have attempted very feebly, to draw your attention to the origin of the various great interests, which called your own into existence. I have always considered, that the welfare of each depen- ded on the security of the 1chole; and were I asked, why this great amount of capital has not been productive to the Shareholders, my reply would be-that there has FeenjTnSSt unhappily, discord between interests where concord should have prevailed. My hope, gentlemen, rests on this—that the evident de- sirableness of concord is so apparent, that it must prevail and that all interested in the welfare of the trade of Cardiff^ will feel it to be a paramount duty, to sacrifice private feel- ing for public good. While one great interest views the immense capital in- ^ste,d f Do^vk|s>. Cyfarthfa, Penydarran, and Plymouth Works, let it think justly of the outlay in the Bute Docks, the Taff Yale Railway, and the Glamorganshire Canal; and. let both feel the one to be requisite for the advancement of the other. Again, let every one, in any way concerned, either M proprietors or otherwise, in this important mineral district, feel that while they possess such great advantages in the gifts of a gracious Providence, a vast responsibility rests on them to make these most beneficial for the general good. Other districts in our neighbourhood, are similarly cir- cumstanced, though not equally blessed; but unless we unite the various interests referred to, we cannot hope to preserve the trade we have, far less to extend it, in propor- tion to the increased capabilities we possess, by the valuable means of communication between the minerals and the sea. We must expect, and prepare for a fair competition, and unless we can show cause why Cardiff should be preferred to- other ports, we cannot justly hope for that extended trade, which can alone benefit the different spirited individuals who. have so largely invested capital with that expectation. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, WM. J. WATSON. Cardiff, 21st Nov., 1843.
