RIFLE MATCH—The 9th Regiment scored a second victory against the Volunteers on Thursday last. The Carmarthen Volunteers, who have a notably strong team, brought down a squad of fifteen men to compete against a similar number of the 9th. The match took place on the rifle range, at Penally, the distances being 200 and 500 yards, seven shots at each. Wimbledon targets. At both distances the 9th considerably headed their opponents, and at the conclusion of the match were found to be in a majority of 85, the grand totals being respectively 587 and 502. After the shooting was over, three hearty cheers were given by the Volunteers for the 9th team, which was equally warmly returned by the soldiers.
PEMBROKE. FUNERAL OF ALDERMAN JONAS DAWKINS. The interment of this deeply-lamented and much respected gentleman took place on Monday, at St. Daniel's Cemetery, the funeral being one of the largest ever seen in Pembrokeshire, a vast concourse of people of all -classes of the community being present. Shortly after eleven o'clock the large and mournful procession was marshalled in the follow- ing order:—The Rev. H. S. Blink, St. Mary's Church, and Dr. D. A. Reid; the ministers and members of several chapels of Pembroke, Pem- broke-Dock, and other places; the Odd-fellows Club, the County Constabulary, the mace bearers, Mr. W. Williams (Mayor), the Aldermen, and other members of the Corporation; deceased's empty carriage, the corpse conveyed in a hearse, mourning coaches filled with sorrowing relatives and friends-chief amongst whom were his brothers, Mr. W. Dawkins, Albion House, Pembroke-Dock, and Mr. Dawkins (Greenish and Dawkins), Haver- fordwest, and his favourite nephew Mr. Jonas Trayler, magistrates and other gentlemen of the county, followed by a vast concourse of other people, men, women, and children, the long pro- cession reaching from the Commons to the top of St. Daniel's Hill. Mr. Dawkins expired at his residence, Main Street, on the preceding Wednes- day evening, quite unexpectedly, having only been unwell since the previous Saturday, his indisposition causing little or no anxiety to his friends until Wednesday morning, when alarming symptoms set in, which, despite all remedies, terminated fatally at nine o'clock the same night, the immediate cause of death, it is said, being inflamation of the lungs. Mr. Dawkins was universally beloved and respected by all classes of the community, high and low, rich and poor, and his death at the comparatively early age of 56 years cast quite a gloom over the entire neighbourhood. Mr. Dawkins was most deservedly esteemed in his public positions, as a magistrate, as vice-chairman of the Board of Guardians, and as Alderman of the borough; he had also been Mayor of the borough for three consecutive years. In his private life he was a great supporter of local and other charities, one of his most recent acts of benevolence being the gift of a piece of land of the value of £160 to Pembroke Infirmary. Mr. Daw- kins was a member of the Wesleyan body, with whom he had been connected for many years, and was a liberal contributor to the church. He was truly an excellent man and an undoubted Christian, and the poor of the town and neighbourhood will have cause to regret his loss. 11 I,-
CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION. Monday was kept as a general holiday in the town and dock-yard, in commemoration of the coronation of the Qneen; and the committee of the Conservative Association made the necessary ar- rangements to hold a grand fete on the Bush grounds, kindly placed at their disposal by Mr. T. C. Meyrick, but the weather was so unfavour- able that thousands were doubtless precluded from attending. About two o'clock, the heavy rain that had prevailed ceased falling, and from that hour up to six o'clock, people began to gather from all parts of the surrounding neighbourhood, there being upwards of 3,000 persons present. There were booths and marquees erected on various parts of the lawns, and games of every description were indulged in; an excellent band, too, was in atten- dance, and dancing was carried on with much zest, until nine o'clock. After the shades of evening prevailed a magnificent display of fire-works was let off. The arrangements were most satisfactory, and reflected much credit on the managers, Messrs. J. Truscott, Dr. D. A. Reid, M. Hobbs, J. Neale Cross, G. Sloggett, Capt. Ballantine, J. Cook, &c. During the afternoon athletic sports were held on the Croft Field, where some capital racing and jumping took place, notwithstanding that the ground was "heavy going" from the heavy rain that had fallen. The principal event, the mile race, was won by Mr. T. Sloggett, Pembroke- Dock Post Office clerk, after a terrific struggle with Mr. James Hooper, Jeffreston, the race being won by half a foot only, beating nine competitors. The high jump was won by James Nicholls, Tenby, who cleared four feet seven inches. Speeches were delivered during the evening by Dr. Reid, Capt. Ballantine, and Mr. John Thomas, Pembroke- Dock.
PEMBROKESHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. These Sessions commenced on Tuesday at the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest, before Mr. John Henry Scourfield, M.P., (the chairman), Mr. James Bevan Bowen (the vice-chairman), and a full bench of magistrates. The usual reports were re- ceived and read. A county rate of one penny, and a police rate of three farthings in the pound, were ordered. An application from the Local Govern- ment Board, respecting the appointment of an analyst for the county, was read and considered, but no order was made on the subject. The Court sat yesterday for the trial of prisoners. The calendar contained the names of three, viz., Thomas Conner, Daniel Davies, and Nathaniel Rudd, on bail charged with stealing a quantity of mackerel at Neyland, on the 30th of April last. Prisoners pleaded not guilty. After a somewhat lengthy trial the jury retired, and after a short absence returned a verdict of not guilty in each case.
ACCIDENT TO A. GOODS TRAIN.-As the Whit- land goods train was coming down Blaincorse Hill (which has an incline of one in seventy), between St- Clear's and Whitland, on Friday afternoon, one of the wheel axles of a truck, loaded with ballast for Whitland, accidentally broke when the train was proceeding down the incline at a rapid rate. The accident was immediately observed by those in charge of the train, but to stop snch a heavy train at this point was impossible. How- ever, before they rcached the Forest Tunnel, which is nearly half-a-mile lower down, the train was brought to a dead stand, when it was found that the disabled truck had also thrown off the metals the adjoining wagon, and that the line had been torn up all the way from where the accident oc- curred, rendering it quite unfit for traffic. The first part of the train proceeded to Whitland and reported the accident. Mr. Brown immediately telegraphed for the engineering staff, which came down by a special train, and by six o'clock the disabled wagon was safely lodged in a siding at this station but the damage done to the line was such that a single line had to be worked between Whitland and St. Clear's up to noon on Saturday. We are glad to state that no one was injured. "THE FANCIER AND POULTRY REVIEW."—We have received the first number of the new series, which is reduced in price from 3d. to 2d.
