LOCAL AND OTHER NEWS The weavers of Carmarthen are exper- iencing one more turn of the screw that bad trade always effects. On Saturday next a football match will be played at Pembroke Dock between Pembrokeshire and Aberavon teams. We publish in another column a list of subscriptions promised in aid of establishing a Cottage Hospital for North Pembrokeshire. Further subscriptions are respectfully solicited, which will be thank- fully 1eceived and duly acknowledged by Dr H. Lawton Swete, Fishguard. The "London Gazette" of Tuesday contains a commission signed by the lord- lieutenant of the county of Cardigan ap- pointing Mr John Francis (Cardigan) as deputy-lieutenant. The Rev P. Williams, minister of the Congregational Church, Lower Clapton, London, left home last week and has not since been heard of. Pembrokeshire men resident in Car- diff and the neighbourhood intend I to celebrate the old memories of their native county by meeting and dining together at the Park Hotel on March the 1st (St. David's Day). The gathering will be presided over by the Bishop of Llandaff. At Banbridge on Saturday, a Mrs Jordan was further charged with murder- ing her husband by poisoning. The evidence showed that a large quantity of strychnine was habitually kept in the house for poisoning ra ts.- Thei prisoner was again remanded. On Saturday last the inhabitants of Aberavon were startled by the news that Mr Evan Griffiths, the manager of the ill- I fated Glamorgan Central Building Society, had committed suicide by drowning himself in Port Talbot Dock. Deceased had been depressed since the crash of the society occurred. He was formerly a councillor for Aberavon, and had been mayor. The Roose Petty Sessions were held at the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest, on Satur- day last.1 There were no cases for hearing and the chairman (Mr R. Carrow) was presented with a pair of white kid gloves. At the/Cardiff Police-court on Saturday, a womsfcn named Florence Jones, aged 33, was brought up for the 105 time with being drunk, &c. She was sent to goal for a month. George Thomas, who was executed at Carmarthen on Tuesday week for murder- f ing Mary Ann Jones, left behind him a confession. In this he states that he met Jones, who was a virtuous girl, on several occasions, but had never walked out with her beyond seeing her home. About a fortnight before the murder she seemed to be avoiding him, and it came into his mind that he would do something to her, but he did not determine to murder her until the day the deed was committed, when he carried a razor with him, and met her after chapel, when he threw her down and cut her across the face and throat, the second wound being fatal.
