Important Discovery at Caerwent. An important discovery has been made at 'Caerwent. On the waste land-between the church and school an inscribed stone was found standing upright in the ground. There are eleven liues of lettering, most of which is quite decipherable. The two lower lines are remarkably clear, and are '■as follows: PVBL ciVIT, SILVRVM." The whole stone seems to have been a sort of epitaph to the memory of some Roman officer. The only tetters that appear on the first line are LEG, and en the next N G. The top of the stone is broken ff. This is believed to be the tir..t inscribel stone yet found in Caerwent. In addition, some very fine Roman masonry has been unearthed in the same spot, remains of au important building, ^probably the Forum.
