THE GOGERDDAN HOUNDS. On Saturday last we met at the kennel at half past six, when the hounds were put into the Oak Wood adjoining the kennel where a cub was soon found. After running him for about an hour round the cover, which he did not seem at all disposed to quit, the voice of the hounds not being to him so alarming a sound as if he had been whelped at a greater distance from the kennel, he was ran into and killed. On Tuesday last, the meet was Llanfihangel gorse, which was drawn blank: we then made for Borth rocks, blank also, and then for Wallog. It was any thing but a scenting day, and we had, con- sequently, but little sport. We are all on the qui vive for a sight of the worthy master mounted and in the field, in which we are glad to hear we are soon likely to be gratified, and then then for a day's fox- hunting in earnest. "TALLY HO!"
THE ATTEMPT TO FIRE SHEERNESS DOCK YARD. An express has this moment reached us from our correspondent at Sheerness: he states that Mr. John Henty the Carpenter, who it will be remembered was the first to discover and extinguish the fire on board the Camperdown 120 guns, was this morning placed in the custody of four police officers, under the suspi- cion of being the originator of the plot, and the per- petrator of the crime of setting fire to the ship, the resin found in Henty's house is also stated to corres- pond in quality and quantity with that found in the Carpenter's store-room locker. Sheerness, Oct. 5th. 5. 30. p. m.

Sale of Cattle, Slieep, at Hafod.-This Sale which took place on Thursday last was attended by an immense number of farmers and graziers, as well as Connoisseurs attracted by so rare an opportunity as this presented of improving their breeds of stock. In stating that there has seldom, if ever, been a sale in the principality at which such high prices for cattle were realised as those which Mr. George Goode obtained on Thursday last, at Hafod, we are only stating a fact; and when we men- tion that six cows sold for £ 176, averaging X29 6 8 each, (the highest prices being X34 and the lowest £22) we think our readers will agree that the state- ment is borne out. The two and three year-old Hei- fers also, as well as the Calves, fetched unprecedent- edly high prices. Mrs. Williams of Castle Hill gave fifteen guineas for a heifer, and the calves ranged from thirteen guineas to five guineas each. Mr. John Hughes gave t 7 14 0 for a heifer 4 months old. The Sheep consisted of pure bred Cheviot, Scotch, Scotch and South Down, Leicester and Cheviot, &c. Mr. Evans of Piercefield, purchased a pen of 5 Scotch lambs at 16s. each, and another pen at 18s. each. A remarkably good Leicester Ram was pur- chased for £ 5, by John Miller, Esq. of Aberystwith, who was an extensive purchaser at this sale, as was also Mr. Price, an eminent grazier, residing near Ludlow. The sheep particularly offered an excellent opportunity of improving our Welsh flocks, by cross- ing them with the pure Cheviot and Scotch, combined with the South Down and the country is certainly indebted to his Grace the Duke of Newcastle, for selecting, regardless of expence, a Stock so judicious and celebrated as that offered for competition on Thursday. His Grace, accompanied by his four sons The Lords Clinton, rode into the field where they remained during the sale; and we were happy to observe that, notwithstanding the recent accident sustained by the Duke, His Grace appeared to be in the enjoyment of excellent health, and was in high spirits. With his usual condescension, conversing affably with several of the Company on the ground, His Grace added greatly to the interest which was felt by such of the Visitors as were attracted to the spot by the beauties of Hafod, rather than by any immediate business there. TOWN HALL, OCTOBER 6.-At a meeting of the Commissioners under the Act for the Improvement of Aberystwith, present, John Hughes, Esq., Mayor, in the chair,1: John Hughes, Lewis Pugh, JohnTeale, 1. S. Bonsall, Lewis Jones, Edward Locke, Robert Edward, and Lewis Lewis the Report of the Finance Committee appointed on the 21st July last to enquire whether any saving could be effected in the annual expenditure of the Commissioners was ta- ken into consideration. The first item in the report recommended by the Committee for the consideration of the Commissioners, was the alleged saving of £10 a year by the erection of sheds, stables, &c., on a piece of ground to be obtained from the Corporation. The further consideration of the expediency of carry- ing this recommendation into effect was postponed 11 till the meeting of the Commissioners, to be holden on the 3rd November next. The next item reported on by the Committee was the sum charged annually for repairs, &c., of the reservoir, which was stated to be still in a leaky state. This matter was referred to the Committee appointed on the 7th July last. The Commissioners determined to adopt the plan of ad- vertising for contracts for the plugs supplied for the works. The Commisssoners received tenders, pursu- ant to advertisement, for the Town manure, &c., for one year, from the 8th October instant, and John Hughes, Esq., of Laura Place, having tendered the largest sum per cubic yard, his tender was accepted. The Turncock having reported to the Commission- ers that the House No. 32, on the Terrace was sup- plied with water from the house No. 31, contrary to the provisions of the act, the Commissioners ordered the offending party to be proceeded against. After the adjournment of the meeting of the Com- missioners, the Mayor held a Court of Petty Sessions, assisted by 1. S. Bonsall, Esq. Sarah Thomas was charged by David Jones with having wilfully broken several panes of glass with her umbrella: fined 6s, the amount of damage, and costs. In default of payment to be imprisoned for 14 days. Alr. George Coffey was charged with assaulting Mrs. lII. A. Pugh, wife of Mr. Robert Pugh. The Court recommended the parties to endeavour to settle the matter between themselves, and for this purpose ordered the summons to be suspended for one month. David Rice, charged Mary the wife of William Lewis who resides near Goginan, with having on the 16th of September last put him in bodily fear. She was held to bail in two sureties ofC,10 each, to keep the peace for twelve months. John Thomas was charged with assaulting Thomas Griffiths, a Constable, while assisting the police in the execution of their duty-He was fined 10s. and costs. ACCIDENT AT THe LISBURNE MINE WORKS—On Friday the 2nd instant a serious and fatal accident took place at these mines. Thomas Wood, who, with his partner David Morgan, was engaged in the process of tamping a hole in the rock, unfortunately using for the purpose an iron pricker, had scarcely struck the first blow when the blast went off which shot him in the forehead and chest, and he only survived a few minutes. His partner, who was standing by him, close to the blast, was seriously hurt, his face being dreadfully lacerated, and his eyes much injured; though, under the care of Dr. Evans, who was sent for without loss of time, we are happy that hopes are entertained of his sight being restored, and of [his eventually doing well. Poor Wood has left a wife and five children but the Lisburne Mining Company, with their characteristic kindness and generosity, have, through their agent Capt. M. Francis, defrayed the whole of the expences attendant on the funeral of the poor fellow, in addition to contributing to the necessities of his family in their sudden calamity. FATAL ACCIDENT AT LAMPETER.—A serious acci- dent, attended with fatal consequences, occurred at Lampeter, on Thursday, the 1st instant..A party of five young gentlemen, boarders at the establishment of the Rev. Mr. Felix, went out on that day upon a shooting excursion. In getting over a hedge, the gun which they had with them was laid on the top of the hedge, one of the party, a youth from Haverford- west, of the name of Philipps, after having got over the fence, took hold of the muzzle of the gun, and while lifting it off, his foot slipped, causing him to drag the gun along the hedge in consequence of which the hammer, which was down on the nipple of the gun, was accidentally raised, and, instantly fall- ing, caused the gun to discharge its contents, which entered the groin of the poor young gentleman, and settled in his back. He suffered great pain until mortification took place, and on Sunday last death terminated his sufferings. Melancholy as the end of this young man has been, it is doubtless a source of consolation to his surviving companions of the unfor- tunate day, that the sad occurrence was the result of accident alone, and that not the slightest blame can attach to any one.

Lledrod Fair This fair took place on Wednesday the 7th instant, and there was a full supply of Cattle, which were sold at prices much higher than those realized at the recent fairs at Rhos, and other places in the neighbourhood. Tee-totallers in Aberystwith.-A meeting—we beg pardon, "demonstration" we believe is the word made use of to express a gathering of the people,"—well then a demonstration of the tee-totallers took place in Aberystwith, on Tuesday last, when about 6000 persons, tee-totallers and others, paraded the streets, preceded by banners, and singing if not at concert pitch, certainly at the top of their voices. The town, however, was perfectly quiet at an early hour. By- the-bye we were a little amused on reading, in a Cheltenham Newspaper of Monday last, an Adver- tisement for a situation out of livery" by a man who states his qualifications to be 36 years' growth, and four years' standing as a Tee-totaller.
