SUDDEN DEATH OF MR BOWYER, AT THE PARK.— Shortly before noon on Thursday, the townsfulks were shocked to hear that Mr Bowyer, for many years mechanic at Pontypool Park, had died suddeuiy. He had been engaged in fixing some hangings in one of the bedrooms at the Pa:k-house, and a woman who assisted him then saw nothing unusual in his appearance. He was afterwards seen by a lad to fall near the archway leading to his workshop, and he seems to have died in- stantaneously. Mr Essex, surgeon, was called in. and attributed death to disease of the heart. Deceased had complained that morning of a pain in the region of his stomach, and had said that he felt far from well. He was highly respected throughout the town; and the news of the awful visitation of Providence excited gene- ral regret.

BLAENAFON. DEATHS IN BLAENAFON. At the School-house, on Thursday, the 6th instant, Anne, the tiffectionate daughter of Mr Thomas, Master of the Endowed Schools. Also, on the Sunday following, at the same place, Mary, the beloved wife of the above-named gentleman. The late Mrs Thomas was greatly and widely respected, having for many years, until health failed her, per- formed the duties of her profession most faithfully and successfully at the Swansea and Blaenafon Girls' Schools. Her death is deeply regretted, and the mourning, both at Blaenafon and the various other places in which she was so well beloved and respected, is universal. AN INQUEST was held at the Sun Inn on the 13th inst. on the body of Michael O'Donnell, who had died from the effects of poison. The following evidence was adduced :—Alice O'Donnell was the widow of deceased. He was a tinman, and used to drink heavily. About half-past 5 o'clock on Monday morning, 3rd of May, he went down stairs, and when be returned he told me that he had taken his breakfast, and that it was the last he should ever want He groaned very much. He was in the habit of using poiaou in his business. I sus- pected he bad taken some of it. 1 rose, and missed it from the bottle. I sent fur Dr Steel immediately. My husband had been drinking hard for six weeks previous to this; he had not been sober a day. Dr Steel said I was sent for on the 3rd of May to see Michael O'Ðon- nel; went to his house and found him in great pain. His lips and tocgue were much burnt. He told me he bad taken poison with the intention of destroying him- self. I gave him proper antidotes, aud examined what he vomited by analysis, and found he had taken hydro- chloric acid, or spirits of salts. He was under mv treatment until the evening of the 11th of May, when he died from the effects of the poison. Before he died, he told me that poverty and drink had driven him to the act. He said it was a very wicked thing, and he was sorry for what he had done. The coroner summed up the evidence, and the jury returned the following verdict:—"That Michael O'Donnell had committed suicide while in a state of Temporary Insanity," CHRISTY'S MINSTRELS.—A company of minstrels, styling themselves the "Star" troupe, gave an enter- tainment at the Assembly Rooms on Thursday evening se'nnight. The performance was very fair, but probably owing to so many entertainments of the kind having been here of late, and the approaching Whitsuntide holidays, the attendance was not very good. 4TH Mo. R.V.-The members of this corps, headed by their band, attended divine service at James's-street Wesleyan chapel on Sunday morning. The resignation of Capt. Steel is deeply regretted by the volunteers of this neighbourhood. ACCIDENT.—Early on Wednesday morning, a serious accident took place at the New Pits. A man named Benjamin Seyssil was engaged in work when a fall of coal struck him dawn. He put out his right hand to raise himself, and that moment another fall took place, and the sharp edgb of the block cut his right hand off. He was conveyed to his home at Pwllddu, and his injuries were attended to by Dr Steel.

-=- ABERSYCHAN LOCAL BOARD. (Continued front page 4 J The chairman complimented Mr Chapman on the. very gratifying remark mby the auditor. Mr Lewis's plans were examined, and as it appeared that thev were defective as to drainage, &c., it was ar- ranged that the committee should meet and examine the premises. With reference to the piggeries and slaughter houses, it was also arranged that the committee should make an inspection, with the view of determining what places should be licensed or registered. A long discussion took place as to Mr Woodford's buildings at the Old Pentwyn Brewery; and the feeling appeared to be in favour of taking proceedings against him without further delay. 0 Mr Richards said that he gave Mr Parfitt leave to erect his shed under the impression that be might au- thorise a temporary building on their own ground. He now undertook to have it removed and be would bear the cost. A letter had been received from Mr A. A. Williams, denying the liability of the Trustees of the Park Es- tate with regard to the fence near the factory at Pont- newjnydd, and throwing the responsibility on the Eb- bw Vale Company. It was agreed to write again to the Company on the subject. It appeared that some man was stocking up part of a parish road near Gar: -fiith. There appeared to be good evidene- that the iu question was a parish road; and the surveyor instructed to stop the havoc. Ali Jones (Varteg) pointed out a certain portion .of road which badly wanted repair, and which led to a good many houses. The chairman undertook to make inquiries as to whether the Earl of Abergavenny would dedicate the road to the public if the Board would un- dertake the repairs
VOLUNTEER REVIEW IN PONTYPOOL PAREL. If Whit-Monday had proved fine, we should. h&v« had a most enjoyable day's pleasure in the p.-irk, as arrangements had been made for holding tuvriia the annual review of the 2nd Administrative B?ftalica yi' Monmouthshire Rifle Voluntas. Contrary to the practice of the clerk of the wea'bor on "WtiU-Mondays, be treated us to a day of wost uncomfortable character, and the rain fell heavily ilurirg the morning. The volunteers svtre not daunted, however, and dutifully kept their appointment, and a large number of sight- seers flocked into town. The shops were clolsed. und cvervbodydid their best, to make merry under d:iflcu!ties. Altogether, some 409 volunteers took part, in the re- view. The field officers were Linut.-(Jcl. the Hon. J. F. Clifford Butler, MHjor Kinp- Majùr Greenliow-Rei'oh, and Captain and Adjutant Phipps. The corps present were as follows:-5th Man., or JlauliurT, Capl-corr-^ mandant Hair, Lieut. J. F. Williams, Assistant-surgeon O. D. Thomas, 68. 4th Mon., or Binenafon, Lieut. Jayne, 64, 6th Mon or Monmouth, 54. 7th Mon. or Newport, Capts. Burton, Jones, and Williams, Lieut. Baker, Ensign 103. 8th Mon., or Usk, Capt. Gething, 49. 9th Mon., or Abergavenny, Capt. Hill, Lieut. Baker, 67. The Monmouth were the first '0 ar- rive in town, coming by the first train iu the mc and by 2 o'clock all the corps, except Newport, werL on the ground. The Newport were not far bellied, and the review then commenced. The following movements were gone tblymeb.- Drawn up in open column. Wheeled into line. General salute, 4tid Inspection by the Colonel. Wheel back into open column. March past in quick time. We observed a cbarye in this movement. Scvetr.1 companies b&viog -.vheeled into the saluting base, on the nrd furward by the right," the officers ran out in double time aud took up their positions in open order, with their swords at the recover, and on resuming the quick time, broQglit tLe sword to the carry. At 10 paces from the seluting flag,, they brought their swords in a circular mitioi:, in two tepl, to the recover and in the 3rd pace diopr.cd i* to the full extent of the right arm, and tight hand L itulet to the rear of the thigh, and casting their eyns to the right on passing the reviewing officer At 6 paces Pk-;t r., the saluting flag, they again brought their swords to the 11 6 recover, and then dropped them to the carry. At 20 paces, they resumed their positions with their compa- nies. This is altogether new to us, and seemed to have a very pleasing effect. I The Battalion closed to quarter distance on the lead- ing company, and marched past at the double. It then opened out to wheeling distance fron: .e rear company; wheeled into line, and was put through the manual and platoon exercise by Major King. It next advanced in line, halted, and formed quarter-distance column in rear of No. 1. Deployed on No. 1. Formed quarter- distance column in rear of No. 6. Deployed on the left company. Wheeled into open column. Counter- marched by ranks. Wheeled into line, and commenced file firing, which was capitally done. Tho cease-firing sounded, and they next wheeled into open column. Formed square on No. 1. Reduced square, and opened out to wheeling distance from the rear company. Wheeled into line, and fired volleys by companies from rigbt to left. Wheeled hack into column, and formed squares on No. 6. The squares were reduced, and a change of front took place on the centre, at the double, followed by a variety of other movements, which were performed in admirable style, up to a quarter past 6 o'clock. The rain, which had ceased for a time, then descended in torrents, and the volunteers were marched in companies to an adjacent grove, and there bivouacked under the trees while the crowd of sightseers fled for shelter to the tents, which were in a few moments filled to repletion, and many were obliged to put up with such protection as the umbr' Has of their friends, and the thinly-leaved boughs n the sprouting trees could afford them. The tireries .¡ had been donned for the occasion sorely suffered, uu-1 by-and-bye a regular stampede from the Park took place. The volunteers stood their ground for some Jime v but as the rain, in- stead of ceasing, grew every moment more violent, there was an end to the review. During the temporary cessation of rain in the afternoon.some young folks set at nought the wet grass, and aan.-ed heartily to the music of the Blaenafon and fife band. j'qr.

THE PONTYPOOL BAPTIST COLLEGE. The annual meetings of this instiluiS«:i were held in Tuesday and Wednesday of the present week. These meetings commenced by the csr.minstion or the students at the College, on Tuesday morning. The examination was conducted, in Theology, by the Rev E. Evans, of Newport; in Hebrew and the Greek Testament, by the Rev E D. Wilkes, of Oswestry; in Classic Grl< pad Latin, by the Rev John Williams, RA., of Abcrga- venny; and in Logic and the English Language, by Rev Thos. Williams, B.A., or The ar'ten.oou was occupied by a meeting of the central committee, Lleweliin Jenkins, Esq. in t!!e chnir. The Welsh services were held in the evening at Crane-street chapel, and were introduced by be Rev A. Parry, of when the Rev John Morris, of Cwm Ivor, preached from l Thess.. 2, 10. The committee met in t-lie effgrei at 10.30 on Wednesday morning. The public service commenced at 11, when the Rev Rees Griffiths, of Car- diff, read and prayed, and the Rev A.

The meetings were numer nisi v htreii :ed hv ministers, principally old students, and other friends. r' S. The treasurer's report snowed that the financial position of tbe College is in a healthy state. Considerable interest was excitcd in the rreeting by the resignation (in consequence of ill health) of the Classical Tutor, the Rev George Thomas, M.A. Tbe friends of the^ institution, anxious to retai*" as long as possible his official connection with the College, as^far as his health would permit, a resolution to that clTott was unanimously adopted by the meeting. A deputa- tion was appointed, to act immediately, to convey to Mr Thomas the wish of the meeting. Dr Thomas, in the most touching manner, spoke of the unit* irrupted har- mony which had existed between him and bis cullcague for more than 28 years. Tbe announcement by the de» putation to the meeting that the appeal was likely to receive a favourable consideration, was hailed with cheers. The resolution confirming the appointment of Mr James Sully, M.A., to the tutorial office, was unani- mously adopted. Mr Sully brings with him the highest honours from the London University. This institution* which has had the reputation fo efficiency, has entered upon a new era in its history.

The numoer of students during the past yc.T has been 20. Those who have completed their course of study, have accepted invitations'to the pastorate.
