THOMAS JACOB, House Surgeoll.. .#,I.ø,,# DINNER AT THE CARDIFF ARMS. —We learn that Mrs Barrett, of the Cardiff Arms Inn. Cardiff, is about to retire from the management of that highly respectable and comfortable house, and that "the. gentlemen of the town and neighbourhood are about to pay her a tribute of respect by dining together on the 18th inst., the anniversary of the. Battle of Waterloo, (sec advertisement.) From the respecta- bility of the list of gentlemen we know not a greater compliment that could have been paid Mrs Barrett, and cannot refiain from adding our hearty good wishes for the success of the dinner. A COMMERCIAL NEWS ROOM has just been com- menced at Cardiff, under the auspices of Mr W. Jones, and Mr W. Bird, and the paid up subscrip- tions for the your are already more than sufficient to cover the cost of five London daily papers, the lead- ing papers of Liverpool, Glasgow, and Bristol, as well as the local ones, circulating in this and tho adjoining counties. AT A CONGREO ATION held at Oxford, on the 22d of May, for granting degrees, the lollowing Clergy- men were admitted to the degree of Master of Arts: the Rev. J. Davies, the Rev. Edward VV. Davies" and the Rev. David Roberts; also Messrs H. Jones, and John W. Roberts: all of Jesus College. THE LATE EARL POWIS was remarkable for phy- sical vigour; and though he spent some years of his life in India (he was son of the celebrated Lord Clive), and indulged freely in a life of pleasure, he might have been seen, when almost eighty, digging in his garden at six o'clock in the morning, in his shirt sleeves. He married the only daughter and heiress of the former Earl Powis, who was descended from Lord Herbert of Cherbury- By his marriage settle- ment, a large portion of the Clive property wassettled on the second sou, Mr Robert Clive, while the Powis estates descended to the eldest, who resides at Powis Castle, in Montgomeryshire, one of the finest old mansions in the country.

LONG EV i,ry. is now living at Bedwas, in this county, a tinker, named Watkin Jones, who, although in his S9th year, daily follows his'useful occupation, mending tins and tea-kettles, for the pur- pose of furnishing his youthful wife with the means of feeding an increasing family of young children. He is the patriarch of a numerous and branching progeny; his great grand children are not few in number, and several of them are older than some of his own children. The inauguration of the monument of Schiller, Ilt Stuttgard. took place on the 6th instant with great pomp. In the morning a procession of 5,000 persons entered the square. The great officers of State, tho members of the two Chambers, the Foreign Ministers, and other high personages, were stationed in a gallery erected for the purpose, with Charles and Ernest Schiller, the sous of the poet, and M. de Gleichen, his son-in-law, in front. A deputation from the school in which Schiller received his education attended, and with it some of his old schoolfellows, and even one of his tutors. Colonel Rosch, now 90 years of age. The statue was uncovered amidst the entljusiaticlicclama- tions of all the spectators. The house in which Schiller lived when surgeon of a regiment was decora- ted with all appropriate inscription, and all the prin- cipal buildings of the town were adorned with flags. At the above interesting meeting the only Englishman present was illr J. Wyndham Bruce, of Glamorgan- shire, who has translated Schiller's Don Carlos he- was specially invited to attend by Schiller's son aii(I on his health being proposed, defended the memory of that ildmirable author from the unfounded attack- of Schlegel.

After the usual preliminaries, the members proceeded in a respectable and orderly mannner, with their respec- tive hanuers to attend divine worship at Chapel, where an excellent sermon was delivered to them by the Rev. J. Harding, on the subject of charitable institutions. After their return to the Bear Inn, they were regaled with an clxcel lent dinner; the room was beautifully decorated, and the table was richly furnished with the choicest clelicicip-, u," the season, the whole reflected the greatest credit on the worthy host atICl and hostess, Mr and Mrs Evans. This society bars out all political discussions, their sole object is to assist each other in time of sickness distress, or any other real need. Alter the cloth was removed, a vote of thanks was proposed by Ol of the members to the Rev. J. Harding, lor his excellent disc,out se, which was most cordially agreed toby every member. The utmost harmony prevailed during the whote day. We understand that there were nearly: a hunwed members present on the occasion. ADAM S WEI,Sll '-At a meeting of antiquaries tc- eently held ih the neighbourhood of Swansea, wLt-re- every one present strove to trace his own pedigree to' periods of most remote antiquity; some went ever so' many generations beyond Noah, and will event golly go beyond the creation it is expected; others disoowered: themselves to be descendants of such nohte hcrofs,. (though never known in the annals of history) that the- deeds of a Caesar or an Alexander would not be worthy of record compared with theirs; whilst an individual' present gravely listened to all their tales, yet seemed anxiously awaiting all opportunity to bring forth some- gr ind idea of his own, which was soon granted him,, when he exclaimed in a dognaatic tone that Adarii spoke Welsh! and proceeded to substantiate bis as- sertion in the following interesting manner: — Wliem Adam returned from naming the animal creation, lie found upon the ground a snail, with its horns stretched, and asked his better half what should be the namo of that; Eve, on perceiving the horns, replied, "Cvrnig'' (horned), to which Adam momentarily acceded; but. 011 touching the sllaiJ to nalIle it, the liorns hence he called it Moel-wetyn, (afterwards without horns). Is not this a proof" positive that Adam was a. |' Welshman?''
