SONNET. The God of the Storm and the Whirlwind." Thou thy stern robe of terrors hast put on, 0 mighty Ruler of the winds and waves! The spirit bows to thee!—from ocean caves E'en to the expansive heaven of heavens, thy throne. All elements, all beings trembling own The greatness of thy presence. Tis the hour Of vast, unmitigated, boundless power, And the heart bends to Thee, and Thee alone. Most mighty 0 how bless'd to feel and know, E'en in this hour of dread, that dear to Thee Is the confiding spirit. Ye may blow, Fierce tempests! but to pass His fix'd decree Or 'gainst His will one moment's war to wage, Is more than ye can do, with all your swelling rage.
THE DRAMA. The Stage-the mighty telescope of mind!" "TheStage should be the great school-house ofmoi-ality, and the lessons taught therein, although adorned with the attractions of poetry and action should be forcible, and calculated to amend the heart." STEELE. On Wednesday evening last, we paid a visit to our commodious and very comfortable little theatre, for the purpose of witnessing Sir Edward Lytton Bulwer's celebrated play of the Lady of Lyons", in which Miss C. Poole, sustained the beautiful character of Pauline, and we were happy to find this lady" at home" in the part, in truth she appeared fully to appreciate the author; as however it is to be repeated on Tuesday evening, we shall reserve our notice of the play till our next, when we hope to have space to enable us to do it justice, which is not the case this week. A little interlude The Welsh Girl," followed, which intro- duced us to a new face in the person of Mrs. Palmer, although this lady had but little to do, she reminded us forcibly of Mrs. Yates more we need not say. Mr. Bass's Sir Owen Griffiths" in this piece was the perfection of acting. The performances at the Theatre last evening, were under the patronage of the President and Gentlemen of the Aberystwith Cricket Club, and the House was filled. The performances consisted of a Comedy entitled Single Life with two farces, besides the usual accompaniment of Songs, Dancing, &c. but we really would with all due deference to Mr. Bass, submit that he should curtail the uumber of pieces, three in one evening are too many, and five hours too long to admit of the interest being sustained. We perceive by advertisement, that the Countess of Lisburne, bespeaks the play on Monday evening.

ion against profaneness and immorality having been read by the clerk, the following gentlemen were sworn of the Grand Jury:- Colonel Powell, M,P. Foreman. P. A. S. Davies, Esq. W. O. Brigstocke, Esq. Thomas Davies, Esq. Chas. T. Freeman, Esq. Thomas Davies, Esq. Chas. T. Freeman, Esq. G. Wool gar Griffith, Esq. John Griffiths, Esq. John Hughes, Esq. John Lloyd, Esq. Thos. R. P. WagnerEsq.

Herbert Vaughan, Esq. Edw. Lloyd Williams, Esq. Caulfield T. Williams, Esq. Heni-y W. tiowell, Esq. His lordship, in charging the Grand Jury, observed, that although he was not able to offer them his congratulations as his learned Brothers had done for the last three years yet a view of the calendar afforded proper grounds for rejoicing. Notwithstanding no sessions had been recently held in the borough, there were only two cases for their con- sideration, an obvious feature of good conduct amongst the lower classes. His lordship expressed himself glad that the same spirit did not extend thus far, which has occupied the attention of the court in a neighbouring county and stated his firm conviction that nothing had a stronger tendency to the improvement of the moral behaviour of the lower classes than a sound religious education his lordship concluded this part of his observations by stating that the calendar proved great attention had been paid to religious instruction in this county. Of the two cases which would be brought before the Grand Jury, his lordship observed one of them was for larceny, the other for bigamy: he then briefly entered into the particulars of the cases, and remarked that any statements made by the prisoners, ought to be received with caution. The Grand Jury then retired to consider the bills, during which the first cause at nisi prius was called on. Jones, and another, v. Edwards. This action was brought to recover the sum of XIOO on a joint note of the Defendant. The Jury after a long consultation returned a verdict for the Defendant. Counsel for Plaintiff, Mr. Chilton & Mr. Nicoll, Attorney, Mr, Jenkins. Counsel for Defendant, Mr. Vaughan Williams, and Mr. Hall, Attorney, Mr. Vaughan Newcastle-Emlyn. I The Jury having returned into Court with true Bills against David Davies, for larceny, and Lewis William Lewis, otherwise, Llewellyn William Lewis, for bigamy; David Davies, was then arraigned at the bar; he was indicted for stealing at Llangurig, certain articles of woollen cloth whilst in process and progress of manufacture, the property of David Morris. The case being fully established against the prisoner, the Jury found him guilty, and he was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment and hard labour. Counsel for the prosecution, Mr. V. Williams, and Mr. Hall, Attornies, Messrs. Parry and Atwood. The prisoner was undefended. Lewis William Lewis, otherwise, Llewellin William Lewis, was then placed at the bar, charged with having in 1839, married Catherine Jane Hughes, his first wife, late Mary Daniel, Spinster, to whom the prisoner was married in 1827, being then and still living. Evidence was given which proved the first marriage in 1827, at Holywell, and also that the wife of this marriage was still alive; but the second marriage was not proved save by statements made by the prisoner and proofs that he and Mrs. Hughes, had lived together as man and wife. The Jury acquitted the prisoner. Counsel for the prosecution, Mr. Chilton, Q. C. and Mr. Vaughan Williams, Attornies, Messrs. Parry and Atwood, Counsel for the prisoner, Mr. Hall, Attornies, Messrs.
