Prisoner then ran away, The Bench sent prisoner to goal for two months, and ordered him to pay 23s, or serve an additional month.
The Bishop of Worcester presided on Saturday at a private meeting of clergy and laity, and submitted a scheme for the establishment of a Bishopric of Birmingham, to embrace the archdeaconry of Coventry and the suburbs of Birmingham, the area having a population of 800,000. It is proposed that the income shall be JE3500, towards which the Bishop of Worcester is prepared to surrender £ 800. The Queen in Council is to determine what Church is to be the Cathedral.
HORRIBLE AFFAIR AT CARMARTHEN.
HORRIBLE AFFAIR AT CARMARTHEN. On the arrival of the 11.10 goods train, which runs from Carmarthen Junction to the town station, on Saturday evening, the driver reported that when about 290 yards from the Carmarthen signal-box he felt the tender of his engine jerk, and he believed it had passed over something. The wheels of the engine were examined, without anything unusual being discovered, and then a fireman was placed on the front of another engine which was going to the junction, with instructions to keep a good look-out. After proceeding about 200 yards, the look-out man beheld a horrible spectacle. On the eastern side of the line lay the headless body of a man, and a few yards from it between the rails was the severed bead. Information was at once given to the police, and also to Mr J. Hughes, who is the official surgeon to the railway company. Both these functionaries were quickly on the spot, and the doctor ordered the body to he conveyed to the town mortuary, where it now lies pending an inquest. The body has not yet been identified. It is that of a man about sixty years of age. On the deceased were found some papers, including receipted bills and a memorandum for a Cardiff firm named Downing, bearing the words "To James Ward. Ivy House, Canton, Cardiff." Whether this is the name and address of the deceased is not yet known, but it is stated that evidence of his identity is forthcoming. How the deceased came by his death is also a mystery.
THE INQUEST. An inquest was held at the Guildhall, Carmar- then, on Monday night, before J. Hughes, F.R.C.S., on the body of the man found decapitated on the Great Western Railway between Carmarthen town and the Junction late on Saturday night. Mary Ward, who identified the body of the deceased as that of her husband, said he was 69 years old, and had resided up to Friday week at Swansea. He was first a schoolmaster, then a clerk, and latterly was a licensed victualler, and kept the "Caledonian Inn," Weston-street, Swan- sea. She last saw him on Friday week, about eight o'clock in the morning. He had been strange in manner since he came to Swansea from Cardiff about two months ago, but there was no reason for it except that he lent money and could not get it back. They were in comfortable circumstances. He had no occupation to take him from home, and had not left home before Friday week. Just after breakfast he said he was going for a walk, and left the house. She received a note which was posted at Swansea from him on Saturday morning, and expected him back, but he did not come. In the note he said he had taken some of his own money to help him on the way to he did not know where, adding, And you may not see me again." Witness could not tell how much money her husband took, as he had the management of the money during the last fortnight. She heard no more of him till she was informed he was dead. She did not make actual inquiries about him for fear of offending him if he heard of them. She went to Cardiff to look for him, but heard nothing. There was no insanity in the family. Mary Ann Williams, waitress at Mrs Dawe's Temperance Hotel, Carmarthen, identified the de- ceased as James Ward, whom she knew. He lodged at Dawes's Hotel during the last week, and left on Saturday morning, after breakfast, about seven o'clock. About the same time that evening she saw him near Carmarthen Gaol. He was quite sober, and said nothing else but "Good evening, waitress," and walked off in the direction of the town station. He was quite cheerful. There was nothing depressed about him at all. Alfred Tucker, Davidstown, Pensarn, engine- driver, said he was bringing a goods train of 17 trucks from the Junction to the town station about 11.5 p.m. on Saturday night. Midway between the stations the tender of the engine jerked in an unusual way. He reported the fact at Carmarthen Town Station. There was no lifeguards on the train. William Bright, another engine-driver, said he took an engine from Carmarthen to the Junction on Saturday evening after the goods train came in, and in consequence of what Tucker told him he held a light in front. About 300 yards from the town station he saw something like a news- paper, and getting down from his engine, he found a man lying on his back with -his head cut off and lying between the rails. There was no public cross- ing at the place where the body was found. P.C.'s Josiah Rees and Edward Edmund Burn- hill spoke to 41d. in money, a watch key, tobacco pouch, and other small articles being found on the deceased. One of his arms was nearly torn off the body. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death, caused by trespassing on the railway."

A NATURALISTS NOTES A ROUNDJT…
A NATURALISTS NOTES A ROUNDJT ENB Y. THE BIRDS OF THE STACK ROCKS. PART III. The Herring Gull (Larus Argentatus) is the next to the Kittiwake, the commonest of the gulls on this coast. Not many however choose the Stack Rocks as a breeding place, generally pre- ferring some part of the coast where the cliffs abound with grassy ledges, upon which their scanty nest of dry grass is placed. The plumage of the adult Herring Gull is very similar to that of the Kittiwake, but the bird is much larger and the beak is yellow, with a red mark on the under mandible, the feet and legs being flesh colour. In the first year's plumage the Herring Gull is brown. The second year the back and wings become grey; head, neck and tail white, but the feathers of the latter are barred with brownish black and those of the head and neck more or le^s marked with the same colour. The third year these markings disappear, leaving the whole pure white. This species is the earliest to nest, eggs in mild seasons, being obtainable early in May. Usually three are deposited, the ground colour of which are different shades of buff or olive brown, blotched or spotted with dark brown. Perhaps the commonest of all sea birds on our coasts is the Puffin (Fratercula arctica) which locally goes by the name of Sea Parrot or Welsh Parrot, so-called from their peculiar shaped beaks, which are very broad and compressed and divided with transverse bars of orange and lead colour, ar- ranged at intervals. The feet and legs are also bright orange breast and under parts white; top of the head, back and wings black; a ring of the same colour passing round the neck: the checks are white, shaded with smoky grey around the eye is a star shaped horny formation branching out in three angles, this combined with the curious shaped bill, gives the Puffin a very comical appearance. Occasionally pure white birds are met with, a fine example of this variety being in the possession of Capt. Davies, of Skomer, on which island it was killed. Though ooly a few nests on and in the immediate vicinity of the Stacks, yet further down the coast on Skokholm, Skomer, Ramsay and Grasholm Islands they occur in myriads. On approaching these haunts the sea is literally covered with these birds, while wherever the soil is sufficiently soft it is honeycombed with their burrows, before the en- trance of which in their quaint upright position stands Mr Puffin looking at a distance not unlike pygmy military sentinels in black and white uniform. Unlike the gulls or guillemots the Puffin deposits its single egg underground for which pur- pose where the ground is soft and easily werked it excavates burrows often to a length of three feet -the male bird is the principal worker though he is assisted by the female—however, the puffin does not always take the trouble to make a house for himself as if the chance offers he takes possession of rabbit burrows driving out-though often not without a fierce conflict-its rightful owner. On Skomer Island of late years the Puffins have in- creased to an alarming extent and have greatly lessened the number of rabbits on that island not only by driving them from their burrows, but by destroying the young or dragging them out of their nests, causing them to perish from exposure or to be devoured by the Herring or Black-backed Gulls. The single egg which the Puffin lays is at first quite white internally (sometimes externally), marked with dark blotches and spots, but from the fact that no nest is made and the egg being laid on the bare earth it soon becomes so deeply stained that it can seldom be restored to its primitive purity. The young Puffin differs from its parents in having for the first year a small narrow beak, quite different from that of adult birds, it as well as the feet and legs are black, while the cheeks are also smoky black. The eyes too of the young Puffin are black though whitish grey in the old birds. Early in August all the Puffins leave our coasts, any late hatched young birds which are not old enough to join in the general departure being left to perish. AMPHIBIAN.
The Lord Mayor and Mrs. F. A. Bevan yesterday placed memorial stones in the Entrance-hall of the New Mission premises, facing Billingsgate Market, thereby marking an era in the work in which the Billingsgate Christian Mission have been engaged for the last 14 years. The new building, which was designed by Mr. G. Baines, stands upon the site of rooms in which the mission was located when the work was entered upon. An appeal led to f 1,200 of the sum which was wanted being raised. Mr. T. Vicary is the missionary. Lord Fife has taken the title of Duke of Fife. The Queen offered his lordship the choice of any title he liked to adopt, including the semi-royal one of Inverness, but Lord Fife has preferred to keep the name by which he has hitherto been known. We believe that his full title will be Duke of Fife, Marquis of Macduff.
