DYFFRYN CLETTWR. Last Saturday the inhabitants of the above vale had the pleasure of witnessing an otter-hunt —a rare thing in this locality. The hounds belong to Capt. Lewes, Llysnewydd. The Master with his young pack made his appearance at Pont- dolfor" punctually at the hour specified. He could not but be well satisfied with the meet, for there was a large concourse of people who had come hither from almost every direction to con- gratulate him upon his securing the new and popular pack. Amongst those present we noticed Sir Marteine Lloyd, Bart, Brouwydd and a friend, Col. Le'Strange, the ladies of Dolellan, Mr Hughes, M.F.H., Neuaddfawr and several other distinguished gentlemen whose names we were not able to get also Messrs. Daniel Evans, Porth Hotel; E. Evans, T. H. Davies, solicitor; and J. Davies, Shop, Llandyssul J. Davies, Ferdrefawr Thomas Evans, Camden Mansion E. Jones, Aberseinon John and James Williams, Henbaut Hall Watkin Davies, St. David's E. E. Evans, Penparc Rees Thomas, Greenpark Wm. Jones, Gelliaur Thomas Davies, New Town J. R. Thomas, John Thomas, and D. H. Evans, Pontshan David Jones, Rhydowen etc. The river Clettwr as far as Gwarllwynoidos was drawn blank, not hardly any track of an otter being detected by the hounds. However, the inhabitants of the district appeared in their conversation to be very positive that otters ought to be found in the river Clettwr without fail, for they are constantly and frequently seen on its banks. Some persons are of opinion that otters do not make a long stay in small streams such as Clettwr and Cerdin, and that they only go up these rivulets occasionally and return again during the same night. There are otters in the Clettwr, and we hope to see Capt. Lewes and his hounds here again immediately the hay harvest is over. It has now just reached my ears, and I believe I better announce it to the Board of Conservators by means of the colums of the JOURNAL, that some evil disposed person or persons has or have wholly destroyed the fish wf Clettwr-fawr for a considerable distance by means of lime. This mischief became known to the public last Sunday. A sackful of lime was put into the river Clettwr- fawr immediately below the bridge near Pont- shan, and it is widely believed that there is not a single trout spared between there and Rhydowen bridge. Thousands, no doubt, have been picked up by the pe, -ple of the place. It is als.) believed that the evil-doers are well known to a certain young man in the neighbourhood, who was going home late that very night from L'andyssul, and it is to bi hoped that this gentleman will, as a warning t, o hers, proceed against them.— DYFFRYN TEIFY.
