THE ROMANCE OF RELIGION. We adopt this prefix, rather for its power of attraction than its appropriateness or applicability. We wish to -draw the attention of our readers generally to the co- lumns collated weekly for the Welshman, and which go under the heart "Religious and Clerical Topics," for they uot seldom possess general interest. One in to- day's paper, for example, reads like a tonaance, although ill truth its subject matter is a sad reality. It "exhibits an awful picture of what the uncontrolled power of the Romish clergy may still dare to effect, and a humilia- ting example of a Government which has allowed the Ties of private right and public law to be broken asunder because it is itself a victim to the worst form of bigotry, and the most servile subjection to spiritual oppression." The details of this case possess a melancholy interest, a* will be seen by'reference to them. They grow out of the principle contended for on behalf of the church of Home, which is this -that any child having completed the age of 12 years may, for any cause, motive, or pre- text, throw off the parental authority, and fling itself under the protection of the Church. If the child be a Protestant, so much the better, since, while it abjures ih filial duties, it abandons its religious faith but whe- ther CiUiotjc or Protestant, the protection of the Church thus sought aud thus given is absolute and inviolable."
CARUS WILSON'S CASE. The Jersey authorities stood on their privilege, and Mr. Wilson was of course still kept in Jersey jail. They intend, it seems, to try the question, and we should not be much surprised at one of two results, their backing out, or the service of a writ upon their jailor called a writ of rebellion. After a deliberation which lasted exactly three hours and a-f|uarter," says the Jersey Times" the jurats re- turned, and, after' silence had been restored, the clerk of the court read their decision, which was of a very lengthy nature, embodying the substance of the various charters and the constitution of King John, by which the judges of this Royal Court, in conjunction with 12 itinerant English jxusticers or judges, are pronounced a stirtl-iesit tribunal, from whose decisions lay no appeal but to the Sovereign. On the authority of all those various documents, and considering that the said C. C. Wilson could, if he thought himself injured by the judgment given against him, have it re-examined by presenting a remonstrance, and, if not satisfied then, could appeal 1'J' cloleancs to Her Majesty in Council, the Court ordered the gaoler to take no notice whatever of the said writ of habeas corpus, and expressed it as their opinion that Justice Patteson had been deceived respecting the question of jurisdiction." This is intelligible, and let us be permitted to hint to the other paper, that the Jersey Gazette should not jump with joy, and sing out victory so loudly. Such a course is not only rather foolish and laughable, but its want of dignity casts something of an air of ridicule over the whole business, and so far, gives the Jersey jackasses an advantage. In our opinion, a quiet statement of facts-of course, with as much sovereign contempt as is felt towards the miserable little official strutters and IItretchera-would better serve Mr. Wilson, and the gause for which he suffers, than all the noisy, large-typed jubilation of the Jersey or any other Gazette in the world.
THE MALT TAX. The question of a repeal of the malt tax is attracting much attention. An entire unanimity of opinion can no more be expected upon this subject than upon any other we are glad to observe, however, that the weight of opinion as well as argument is in favour of the repeal. A correspondent who signs himself A Tenant Far- mer," says. "Let the honest, hard-working, but now starving labourer, be supplied first with the means to procure plenty of the home-grown flour, plenty of potatoes from off an allotment of ground, and with them some strengthening meat, all the produce of their masters and their own toil and exertions." He further observes, that with wheat at 5s. 6d. per bushel it is impossible for the tenant farmer to employ the number (of labourers) he otherwise could and would employ and he calls for the "repeal of the iniquitous Canada Flour Bill," to raise the price of wheat, and thereby of course to enable the farmer to employ the labourer. It is well known to our readers that we predicted the effects of the Canada bill, and called upon the agri- cultural body to oppose its passing but now, passed into a law, we have no hope of its repeal. But as regards the remedy of our correspondent, it naturally occurs to us to ask, did the labourer enjoy the plenty of ho'ue-jgrown flour and some strengthening meat" before the passing of the Canada bill ? The- reply must be in the negative hence we doubt the supposed erfect of the repeal of this bill, if obtained. As was observed by one of the speakers at the meeting on the 4th Nov., II If the farmers did not try to squeeze something out of the government, others would:" so we find that a meeting is about to be held at Manchester for the purpose of endeavouring to obtain the repeal of the duty on cotton WQol. Some parties are seeking a reduction of the duty on low-priced teas, and others of the duty on sugar. We repeat that which we have frequently told the farmers of England, that it is upon themselves, and on themselves only, that they must depend for the main- tenance of their rights and the support of their interest. Their representatives in the present house of Commons are paralyzed by a single expression from the Minister I will resign The tenantry must give expression to their opinions in terms not to be misunderstood, and the Minister will not resign," but will concede their just demands. We strongly urge that local committees should be immediately formed as extensively as possible. We are well aware that the time of the farmer is fully occupied in his daily avocations but it must be borne in mind that there is no business upon which time can be better spent than in endeavouring to obtain a repeal of this tax. At all events, there can be no difficulty in convening a meeting in the market-town on market- day, and continuing the meetings over from week to week, adding to the list of names as many persons as possible the poorest man has as interest in the repeal of the Malt Tax. Let a committee be forthwith formed in every market-town in the kingdom, and let its energies be judiciously directed, and success is certain. -.U,arA* Lane Express.
The demand for allotments we (the Times) view as only another form of the demand for employment at fair wages Give a labourer enough to fill up his time profitably, and he will not want half an acre of potato ground at Grub NVood," or any other such ill-condi- tioned locality. Allotments may be considered, then, a voluntary substitute for the labour rate, which, in its turn, is a substitute for the voluntary employment of sufficient labour. We say sufficient, for generally ipeaking, even in our more populous agricultural districts, it would pay to employ more labour. Large And liberal employers--i, <?., they who employ their quota, and more than their quota, of labour, and give decent wages—may be excused from an expedient which is attended with much inconvenience and some danger. Whatever it is the labourer demands, employ- ment or allotments, the actual question for the landlord in most cases is this—" Shall I spend fifty pounds more on the land, or throw it into my personal ex- penditure, my establishment, niy travelling, my tastes, and other such outlets ?" Let the economist say in which manner the fifty pounds will be spent most profitably to the nation at large. INFANTICIDE.— APPREHENSION OF THREE RES- ECTABLE PERSONS.—On the 2th ult the body of a female child was found dead at the hack of the house of Mr. Quinton, surgeon. It appears that for some time previous to the finding of the bod)', Mr. Ilildreth, prin- ter, residing in the town, had paid daily visits to Mr. Quinton's surgery, always inquiring very particularly for Mr. Sheriff, Mr. Quinton's assistant. Mr. Quinton interrogated his assistant as to the cause of these fre- quent visits, and was informed Mr. Hildreth wished him (Mr. Sheriff) to procure abortion for a person of great respectability, secrecy being guaranteed and money no object." Mr. Slierilf asked Mr. Quinton if he would attend ? but that gentleman refused to do so. Mr. Sheriff informed Mr. Quinton that the party was Miss Railton, of the Post-office and subsequently applied to Mr. Doubler, of the same place, to procure abortion for a party, describing her in terms similar to those he had used to Mr. Quinton, but omitting the name. Mr. Doubler also very properly declined to attend. Since the finding of the body at Mr. Quinton's, the suspicion attached to Miss Railton that the ch id was hers, aid she was eventually apprehended by Colonel Hogg, of the county constabulary. She at first denied having had a child, but since her apprehension has made dis- closures seriously affected Mrs. Hildreth (her sister) and air. Sheriff, Mr. Quinton's assistant. From her state- ment it appears that on last Sunday night three weeks, at Mr. Ilildreth's house, at about 12 o'clock at noon, Mr. Sheriff went and performed an operation, and she was in dreadful pain and agony for the time lie had done this until she was delivered of a child. The body was taken away three or four nights afterwards, and the material question in the investigation is, whether the body found is that of the same infant. From the post tuortent examination made bv Mr. Fowke, there appears no doubt that the child found npon Mr Quinton's premises was born alive. Mr. Sheriff, Miss Railton, and Mrs. Hildreth are in custody. Colonel Hogg and the police have been most indefatigable in their endeavours to further the ends of justice with regard to this mysterious affair. A coroner's inquest, under the presidency of Mr. Phillips, one of the coroners for Staffordshire, has been held some days, and was adjourned until yesterday.

I S.—Nonsense: we are desirous of RAisrso Welshmen in their own esteem and in the scale of the political world. J. E.—We look beyond mere party interests to better and greater things. A WELSHMAN.—We believe, with an eminent writer, that the first step to get rid of an evil is to get it ac- knowledged." The political ignorance and indifference of Welsh constituencies appears to us an evil, and we deem it our duty to endeavour to get it acknowledged. That's all. E. E.—It is a part of the public duty of the Welshman to "vindicate the principality" into Political existence. F.—Ignorance and prejudice often turn truth" into error, and love into selfishness, by extracting from all political writing just what suits their own convenience, and no more. K.—Of course there are exceptions to the general in- difference just as there are exceptions to the political love of "pelf and self." Alderman Charles Jones is one exception. His sacrifices stand out prominently enough, and supply something more than contrast—and at his age too. What can 29 Members do ?" asks a Carmarthen Correspondent, who answers himself, and says—" they can do nothing, absolutely nothing." We suppose our Correspondent's postulate is really an inference from fact. They do nothing, ergo, they can do nothing." With deference, we submit that that government must indeed be strong which could dispense with 58 votes. Why, it is hardly too much to say that the Welsh mem- bers, if they were united and earnest, could make or unmake almost any government. 58 votes must have some little weight we should think. A SWANSEA-MAN cannot be more ready than we are to acknowledge the practical good sense and business habits" of Mil. ViviAN. The claim, however, of the Conservative members of Carmarthenshire is equally valid. As to "good sense" that, of course, is in all such cases mere matter of opinion; but the public bu- siness habits" both of the HOCi. MB. TREVOR, AND ME. SAUNDERS DAVIES admit of no question. The letter on Cardiganshire Politics, with several other things, stands over till next week.
We now resume our remarks respecting the Repre- sentation of Wales. We' left off last week at Carmar- then, where, it may be recollected, we pulled up rather short," having only just before got away from Pem- brokeshire with a parallel, buckled on to a notice of the circumstance that Mr. DAVID MORRIS was only so far unlike, and obscurer than the trio of Pembrokeshire pa- tricians, SIR RICHARD BULKELY PHILLIPS, BART., SIR J. OWEN, BART., and "VISCOUNT EMLYN, that he was not at all indebted for his seat to the accident of birth.* Of honest parents born, but hunrble race, No herald needed his descent to trace." We shall now then push on, and with the feeling of one who having before him a barren tract and cross-country roads, is determined to drive away to the end of his journey as fast as he can. We have then in our Queen county, the pink of the principality," (as Carmarthenshire itself claims to be) the HON. MR. GEORGE RICE TREVOR, eldest son of LORD DYNEVOR, who is officially Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum, his son, owing to his noble relative's advanced age, being virtually so, and always acting for him. The uther County Member, Mr. SAUNDERS DA- VIES, has sat only for a short time, having been elected in January, 1843, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of MR. JOHN JONES. MR. DtvID MORRIS, as we have already mentioned, sits for the boroughs. Some one of our readers may perhaps naturally enough inter- pose here with precipitate impatience, saying-" surely we needed no ghost, or newspaper either, to tell us this." We admit the seeming reasonableness of the impatient reader, but, in sooth, when we have stated the fact as we have fairly stated it, namely-that there are two Conservative gentlemen for the county of," Carmar- then, at the same time duly setting out their 6tjle and dignity, and tail this piece of useful knowledge—with like specification for the borough, writing down after MR. DAVID MORRIS'S name the word Whig"—we have really done all that mortal can-do. Nevertheless, if our readers really wish it, we will go on. Well then, the voice of Mr. SACNDERS DAVJES, it is perfectly true, has been heard within the walls of Parliament, and although it would be something pre- mature to judge of his parts just yet, he has, we have reason to believe from all we have heard about him, at kmamwpwtable, if not brilliant, talents. L. TREVOR, his colleaguet-who, it is said, would have been a gen- tleman if he had not been born one-is, as it were exempt, by virtue of his high rank, from hard work. The hon. gentleman, nevertheless, amuses himself a good deal in the county-and it must be confessed others too sometimes. Of course he does not fag for a figure" in Parliament. Then MR. MORRis-without the same excuse or privilege-equally, makes no figure" in Par- ment. So, we have really, in point of fact, nothing to say about any of them. Ex nihilo nil fit; and we can make nothing of the hon. members-that's the truth. At best we can but generalise and describe the Welsh members, in a lump, by negatives. But we have 3 members for Carmarthen, Shire and Boroughs. Take away two, the member-of-course J (LORD DYNEVOR'S son) and the probationary member whose greatness was, only the other day, thrust upon him (MR. SAUNDERS DAVIES) and, according to Cocker, one only remains; and MR. DAVID MORRIS is that one. He is our Unit then-we leave to others the wickedness of saying he is our cipher. We maintain that he is our Liberal member; the eloquent, patriotic, statesmanlike member for the united boroughs of Carmarthen and Llanelly. If our member have a fault, and far be it from us even to hint one, if our member have a fault, we say, it is that he is too modest. But diffidence, we are told, is ever found in alliance with high mental power and the only reason why MR. DAVID MORRIS has never done anything but give a silent vote is because MR. DAVID MORRIS has the diffidence of genius. But for this consideration we should certainly censure his unvarying, invariable, and sometimes rather provoking silence in the House. We should say-" one might just as well have no member at all." We however make, and ought to make, large allowances on the score of modest merit. Nevertheless, —and now we are quite serious, however, much of allow- able raillery what we have just said may have in it- we cannot wholly pass over the inexplicable silence the hon. gentlemen preserved during the gate-breaking dis- turbances. Those disturbances were frequently the subject of discussion in Parliament, and were known all over the world as Rebeccaism." Carmarthen was the very focus of this Rebeccaism, and yet the member for Carmarthen was mute. Amongst the representatives of the people, when the character of his constituents and of his country was not only called in question, but when it is difficult to say that their lives were not in danger on the one hand by a inisknowing and deceived soldiery, or on the other by the degraded, stolid, semi-civilised serfs of the soil, stirred up from fanatical foolery into a sort of in- surection by the petty exactis of ;a legios of little, jobbers, by a hybrid, pigmy race of vulgar clowns and slobbering drivellers calling themselves (something after the fashion of the Celestial Empire) gentry and 'squires,"—the hon. gentleman was silent. Can such things be. And overcome us like a summer's cloud, Without our special wonder?" We readily admit that MR. MORRIS might have had his reasons for silenc*; they might have been very good ones but it is our duty when reviewing his parlia- mentary conduct to state the fact. It may not be a very pleasing duty it is, in truth, a disagreeable one but it is one in which it is not permitted us to consult our own inclination, for we could not do so, ,without at the same time abandoning our post as the sentinel of the public, and being guilty of a base and mean suppression of truth. Besides, All common exhibitions open lie. For praise or censure to the common eye."
It will be remembered that we set out with hazardir.g an opinion that all our members were more or less in- debted foi their seats to one of two accidents, the acci- dent of wealth or the accident of family. Birth or breeches-pockets, indeed, we believe are the begin-all and the end-all of our whole representative system more or less, and we notice the circumstance in relation to South Wales, where one or other of these influences is always discernible—always in the ascendant, less as a peculiarity than as a fact, a fact accounting for the Welsh members never making any great figure in Parliam nt. t Although the Welshman has long been associated with the Welsh Whigs, we have always, in our editorial capacity, experienced the greatest courtesy from both the Conservative members; and in that capacity we acknowledge ÏL. X The member of course". The hon. gentleman illustrious by birth and not by courtesy, takes his scat in the House of Commons as much as a matter of course as he takes his seat in his own carriage. He was to the manner born" a legislator, and as sure as he lives, he knows nobody can keep him out of his place in the Lords amongst the hereditary legislators. About the period we have just spoken of, it was of course expected by everybody that MR. DAVID MORRIS would have stated in his place in the House of Commons the origin of Rebeccaism, that he would have given some account of its progress, and that he would not have been silent when his constituents and his countrymen en masse were exhibited to the world, as they were ex- hibited night after night.. Breathes there a man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land." But apart from nationality, putting vindication of his countrymen out of the question—putting justice to them also aside, ought he not at least to have stated what was the cause and cure of Rebeccaism ? Unfortunately the hon. gentleman did nothing, said nothing he was as mute as a small mouse on the floor of a full House- when, too, he or the most common-place person that ever strung six consecutive sentences together, might have commanded the attention of parliament, and not only of parliament, but of the united kingdom, for it was a subject which excited universal curiosity. This silent cipherism—we adopt the common term employed by the hon. gentleman's constituents in reference to his silence —this silent cipherism within the walls of Parliament, it has been contended, coupled with the fact of his hav- ing virtually sided with the jobbers, and so far upheld all the petty exactions and petty oppression of jobbing justices' and their infernal machinery" surprised everybody. And it was only of a piece (say the same censors) when the hon. gentleman completed this, no doubt honest and conscientious, but nevertheless also most extraordinary course of conduct, by never re- monstrating, counselling, or evincing the slightest sympathy with the aggrieved, or with the public press which made known the intolerable mass of petty grievances, and the grinding oppression to which his own constituents and the people of the principality in general were subjected. Who would not laugh if such a man there be? Who would not weep if Atticus were he V But we gladly and purposely pass over several other parts of MR. MORRISES public conduct on which we are not now called upon by any imperative sense of duty to remark. Nor—although we have nothing to hope or to fear, having neither party nor personal interest in it, Whig, Tori-usve, mihi nullo discrimine habetur." —nor will we be unfair or unhandsome, much less un- just to a member who perhaps felt himself placed in an awkward -and embarrassing situation in parliament. Since, Smce, Necessity's the master still of WILL, How strong soe'er it is- The hon. gentleman after all, may have a very good defence, he may have a very good answer, and we are sure he will, at all events, feel grateful to us for honestly and fairly letting him know that one is ex- pected. The great body of MR. MORRIS'S constituents do expect that he will give an account of this part of his conduct. Of that the hon. gentleman may rest assured, whatever may be whispered in his ear, by those who are ignorant of the state of public opinion. Facilis descensus Averni Sed revocare gradum sup rasqua evadere ad auras, Hie labor, hoc opus est. We abstain from saying any more. We have noticed it because it was our duty to do so, not because it was our pleasure. Moreover, we have noticed it, not in order to cast censure on MR. MORRIS, not even to imply censure on an individual, as an individual-we the more desire this to be distinctly understood by our readers on ac- count of the generally known absence of other than mere conventional relations between us-but solely (we say solely, and beg to be believed) to illustrate one of the consequences resulting from that want of de- mand for, and supply of, members who are WILLING and ABLE to do their duty in Parliament. We have done for to-day, and it now only remains to observe that we intend to bring the subject to a conclu- sion next week. Meantime, we may ask—What have the Members for Wales ever done for Wales ? Have they EVER assumed a bold, manly attitude ? or has the power placed in their hands by baby-electors always been used as a play-thing or turn-penny by the elected ? We do not remember so much even as an attempt, no, not the feeblest attempt, not the least effort, by the members of Wales to obtain justige for Wales," or to improve and elevate the condition of the people of their native country. But as we have said an a former occasion, Welsh constituencies are much more censurable than Welsh members. Let only electors make a distinct de- mand for capable men, that is good members, and the de- mand will be met by a corresponding supply. Then, CONSERVATISM WILL CEASE TO BE A CATCII-CALL, & LIBERALISM A LIE.

SIR HENRY POTTINGER.-We state, on what we cenceive to be good authority, that her Majesty's minis- ters have advised the Sovereign to confer a high distinc- tion on Sir Henry Pottinger, for his diplomatic services in China.—Ministerial Paper. The Duke and Duchess of Saxe Coburg, the Prince Ernest of Wurtemburg, and suites, arrived this morning, and are now at Windsor CLERICAL JARS. Some disputes have taken place in the parish of Tottenham, between the Incumbent and his parishioners, arising out of the attempted intro- duction by the Rev. Gentleman of some alterations in the rubrics and other matters relating to the reading of Divine Service. GUANo.-In the course of the last few days several vessels laden with guano have arrived in the river Thames. The manure is meeting with a ready sale. The Spartan, 600 tons burthen, from Ichaboe, is now in the Surrey Docks unloading. In the Surrey Canal there are two vessels, the Achilles, about 400 tons and the Young Captain, about 120 tons. In the West India Docks there are two vessels, of about 1100 tons, laden with Peruvian guano. There are two other vessels in the river, making altogether about 3000 tons of this new description of manure in the market. The price of African guano is about £ 6 per ton, the quality of which is described to be excellent. When the Spar- tan left Ichaboe there were there about 200 vessels, some of which were of heavy burthen, and which were being laden with the utmost possible dispatch. The guano is brought over in bags of from l^-cwt. to lj cwt., which are sold on board the ship. Several more vessels are expected in a few days from Ichaboe. A few months ago the price varied from £ 10 10s. to £ II. HORRIBLE I 'NIUltDER--A brutal murder took place yesterday at Yarmouth, in the county Norfolk, under the following circumstances. The deceased, named Harriet Chandler, was a widow woman, very quiet, add respectable, was a member of the Wesleyau Society, and managed a chandlery shop. The night policeman on duty found her street door partially open he called to her, but receiving no answer proceeded to examine the till, suspecting some robbery had been committed. Lying down by the side of the till, with her head forced under the counter, he found the deseti,. literally deluged in her own blood. Her skull had no less than five wounds inflicted upon it one of them in the left side so severe as to throw the upper portion of the bone so as to overlap another broken part of the skull. On the right side of the neck a wound had been inflicted sufficiently severe to sever-a portion of the vertebrae of the neck, nd one of her fingers was cut off, probably whilst uplifted in defence. The following is the probable history, as gathered from the evidence at the coroner's inquest (proceeding when this report left). Deceased lived quite alone in the house, and went to a public- house opposite, to purchase her supper beer, leaving the street door closed but unlocked whilst she was gone. During an absence of 10 minutes, the murderer or murderers (probably two) secreted themselves in a bin where peas or bran was kept. The deceased sat for a time reading a religious book, and drank a portion of the porter, she then went into the shop to take the money out of the till, when she was felled to the ground by the murderer's hammer. The first blow rendered her insensible the remainder were given lest the intent and not the deed" should confound them. A knife covered with blood lay by the side of the deceased, but the surgeon was of opi- nion that the wound in the neck was inflicted with the cheese-cutter (a kind of short axe ) which contained a portion of blood upon it. Last Saturday deceased had taken a division of property amounting to £ 150., left by her husband's mother and uncle. Several of her relatives live in Yarmouth and neighbourhood, and received similar sums it became common talk amongst them, and the deceased was incautious enough to say that as the f 150. was for her son, she should put it under her bed until she could hear from his trustee, as she expected a much larger sum. This got noised abroad, and parties doubt- less sedulously watched her movements on the night in question, in order to plunder her, and as they were recognised and known by her, to murder her rather than be detected. The £ 150., was taken without disturbing the bed £ 150., was in a check on Messrs Gurney and Co.'s bink. During the inquest a portion of money, consisting of gold, silver, and about £ 8, or ;ClO., in coppers, were found near the Battery, in a bag which was taken from the deceased's premises the night of the murder-the contents of the till, doubtless. It had, wrapped up in it, a man's purse, containing a token, enveloped in fuur papers, and written upon, in a man's writing, The Lord said unto my lord, Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thy enemies my footstool." No clue has been at present found. A reward will, we be- lieve, be offered but at this moment no tidings of any noise in the next house, or anything likely to lead to the detection has been discovered. There were several places where the murderer had wiped his hands upon, and the till was found thrown up in one corner of the shop empty. THE REPEAL ASSOCIATION,-At the usual weekly meeting of the Repeal Association held: on Monday in Dublin, the only thing worth Notice was Mr. O'Con- nell's repudiation of Mr. Sharman Crawford's scheme. A Cabinet dinner was given last night at the Earl of Aberdeen's, and after the Council, to-day or to-morrow, another will be given at the Duke of Wellington's. One principal subject of consideration by the Council, is the discussion upon the Brazils Tariff. MADRID, NOV. 13.-The Preamble to the Constitu- tion has been voted to-day, in the terms proposed by the Government and the Commission. The French papers are not of the slightest public importance. SPANISH REFUGEES IN GIBRALTAR.—The following is an extract from a private letter from Gibraltar, dated November 10 I am just informed, on good authority, that yesterday nine individuals were at a moment's notice obliged by the authorities to quit Cadiz, without the assignment of any cause for such summary eject- ment. They arrived here this morning by the Royal Tar. It was their intention to have proceeded to Mar- seilles by the first steamer, but the news received from England this morning put them upon their guard, and will probably induce them to change their destination. Four companies of a Spanish regiment arrived this morning at Algesiras from Cadiz. The whole country is in a ferment, and events of great importance are on the eve of taking place." PIRACY IN THE PORT OF GIBRALTAR.-An unpre- cedented act of daring piracy was committed here on the night of the oth instant, in the very centre of the shipping'of this port, by a party of arpied Spaniards, on board of the Sardinian polaeca sehooher, San Michael. TAHITI.—There has been another battle between the French and the natives, in which a pmat number of the latter have been butchered by their well-armed and well- disciplined assailants. Louis Philippe's new officer of the Legion of Honour, Capt. Bruat, is, we suppose, the hero of this slaughter. The Fishguard English frigate has conveyed Queen Pomare to the island of Bolabola. THE WEST INDIA MAILS. I The Royal West India mail packet the Clyde has arrived.- It appears that the season throughout the West Indies has been unusually hot, causing great sickness and mortality. Demerara was particularly unhealthy, typhus and scarlet fever raging, in addition to the indigenous fever of the colony. The Jamaica House of Assembly was opened by the Earl of Elgin onthe 15th of October. The Hill Coolie proposition was brought forward in a very full house and, after a lengthened discussion, was carried the number, how- ever, being limited to 2,000, instead of 5,000, as pro- posed by the home government. A dreadful fire occurred on the Canal Coffee Plantations, near Demerara, on the 14th of October, and was burning on the 20th, whereby nearly the whole of that valuable district would be destroyed. The plantations were fired by the peasantry in consequence of a tax on the sale of plantains having been recently exacted by the collector of the- district. DREADFUL DEVASTATION AT MONTEGO BAY.— Since the year 1818 there has not occurred such a dreadful visitation at this place as was witnessed on the tli inst. (October). On the night of the 4th the weather, which had been for days past rather threat- ening, assumed an unusually lowering and portentous appearance. Between nine and ten o'clock, p.m., it commenced to blow very hard from the south, a strong ground swell heaved into the bay from about 3 p.m. and at about a quarter to 2 a.m. on Saturday it acquired a terrific force. The situation of several vessels in the outer harbour, Green's Hole, and the Close Harbour, became now very critical. At Green's Hole one man, called George Young, on board the Sloop Isabella,, was placed in the most perilous situation the sea made a complete breach over the vessel, and in utter despair he clung to the mast uttering the most piteous cries, which were heard from above the remorseless dash of the wild occean. He remained in this dreadful state of anxiety and alarm until half-past twelve p.m., when fortunately a line was conveyed on board from Gun Point Wharf, on which he swung himself on shore in the very act, however, of touching the wharf it broke, but we are happy to say he was seized in time and safely landed, though considerably worn out by fatigue. There was during the day comparatively little wind, but the sea raged in the most dreadful manner. Between six and seven a.m., the fine schooner Africanus was driven ashore at Meagre Bay, and very shortly after became a complete wreck. It is impossible to describe the havoc that has been occasioned, The whole line of coast from Christie's Rock to Kathren's Beach has been ploughed up, and bears more anil less the marks of the extraordinary violence of the sfa. Every wharf has suffered; and the loss of lumber end other property is immense. The crane at Gun Point-wharf (Jump's) was, carried away. The front part of the wharf (Jmps) occupied by the Messrs. Melhadaes, was considerably undermined. I cannot, depict ifce scene of distress which prevaileiHn our town yesterday, from 4 p.m. up to dark. Persons of all classes and sexes were to be seen hurrying about in the greatest possible state of agitation and alarm. The sea rose higher than it has ever yet been known to do, and the waves dashed into the bay with a noise equal to that of the loudest thunder.
CARMARTlIEN.-The Adjourned Quarter Sessions for the County, were held on Monday. There were present D. Prytherch, Esq., Rev. Sir E. H. G. Williams, Bart., T. Jones, Esq., M.D., &c. The Treasurer's accounts were examined and passed, the several vouchers being produced. It appears that there is now a balance of E672 los. 10jd. due from the county to the Treasurer. John Davies, Esq., Lime Grove, qualified in the usual way as a magistrate for the county. It will be seen from the Advertisement of the Carmarthenshire Hunt week, that whereas the county only contributes jE60 to the Open Steeple Chase, the town of Carmarthen gives no less than E50 for the Town Plate. This sum was principally obtained, through the spirited exertions of Mr. George Goode. LATE ARRIVAL OF THE CARMARTHEN MAIL.—Our Mail does not keep such time as is desirable, whether practicable or not. For example, we, who have a box and ought to get our letters and papers before the general delivery to the public, had not our London correspon- dence last night until nearly 7 o'clock, or about three hours behind time. DESPERATE ASSAULT.—Last night, between ten and eleven o'clock, as Mr. Jones, of the Angel Inn, Bridge Street, Carmarthen, was returning home from Llanarth- ney, on horseback, and when about a mile from Carmar- then, he was suddenly attacked by two powerful men, who, without saying a word, set upon him, and in the most savage manner struck him on the head with blud- geons. The first blow felled him to the ground, and they continued beating him until he became senseless. It is supposed that their intention was to rob him, but his cries alarmed them, and they made off. His horse gal- lopped into Carmarthen, and he managed to reach home shortly after. He now lies dangerously ill. CARMARTHEN THEATRE.—We have been reminded by the manager of the Carmarthen theatre, that as the Welshman has so often vindicated the claim of the million to a provision for rational recreation, we are hardly consistent in having passed over without notice the theatrical performances with which this company are amusing the public. We admit the reasonableness of Mr. Fenton's remonstrance, and now make the amende in some measure, by saying that the theatre is well worth going to and the corps dramatique alto- gether a far better one than we were prepared to find. Last night we had Perfection, a bespeak we believe of Colonel Love, who with a fashionable party was pre- sent. It was got up very passably, and the characters were really supported with no small share of artistical talent. Some songs .which fbljowjgd* SPPg admirably by Lee, were encored. After which" (as the play-bill has it) the new and comic extravaganza, called The Happy Man" came, with a successipn of entertainments of which it is not too much to saY that they were very amusing. The manager deserves success, and we hope he will be supported. We had almost forgot to mention the circumstance, that the house was crowded, and if there was not all the fashion and beauty of Carmarthen assembled, there was at least a not inconsiderable pro- portion of it. COURSING AT LLANFYNYDD.—The coursing match last Tuesday, at Llanfynydd, on the preserves of David Jones, Esq., Glanbrane Park, was well attended and afforded capital sport. There were 32 hares started, and the dogs performed their task well. Tudor, the property of Mr. J. P. Lewis, Llandilo, was decidedly the favorite of the day. Sweep, Gipsy, Puss, and Smoker, were also conspicuous. Eleven hares were taken, out of which Tudor took 5 in 7 runs; Siceep took 3 after 5 runs, and Gipsy, Fly, and Smoker, one each. Dinner was prepared by Thomas Evans, of the Hand-in-Shears, it being his House-warming Dinner, and the chair was ably filled by Mr. F. Green, Esq., of Court Henry, supported on his right by J. P. Lewis, and J. Thomas, Esqrs., and the vice-chair was filled by Mr. S. Tardrew, Carmarthen. After many loyal toasts were drank, the company separated highly delighted with the day's sport CARDIGAN POLICE, Nov. IS.-John Thomas, carrier, was charged with stealing unthrashed barley on the 11th inst., the property of Owen Jenkins, a poor farmer of this Borough. Thomas was committed for trial to Haverfordwest quarter sessions. David Roberts, land- lord of the White Hart, charged with refusing to admit the police into his house during the hour of divine service of the 17th inst., was fined one shilling and costs. William Protheroe, a sailor, was committed for 7 days to Cardigan Goal, under the vagrant act. Da¡;id Thomas, Glazier, was charged with obstructing P.C. Allen in the execution of his duty. He expressed his regret, was reprimanded and discharged. Thomas Harris, sailor, a native of this town, was charged by P.C. Rafferty on the 11th inst., for being drunk and disorderly, and assaulting him in the execution of his duty. Harris was finecl 1:1 including costs, and bound over to keep the peace for 12 months. HEALTH OF GENERAL NOTT.We are happy to learn that General Nott is much better. Several nights of calmer rest than usual have contributed to this happy consummation, and It is confidently expected that every day will give him additional strength. Lady Nott, although herself scarcely recovered from a severe fit of illness, is most affectionately assiduous in her care of Sir William, depriving herself of needful rest, and together with the Misses Nott, remaining by the couch of the gallant soldier night after night in order if possible to anticipate his wishes, and afford him every practicable relief in his painful illness. WEATHER IN WALES.—The weather in Wales is so remarkably mild that in the room we are writing in the windows are thrown open, and the sun shines at mid- day as brightly as in the Spring. The humidity of the atmosphere early in the morning and at night, never- theless, is a serious drawback on the too great mild- ness of the season" and, by its relaxing effects, has occa- sioned some sickness. This morning, however, the atmosphere gave token of a more frosty and bracing state. Fox HUNTING IN WALES.—Notwithstanding the distressed state of agriculture" we have in and about Carmarthenshire no less than nine packs of hounds. In the immediate neighbourhood of the town of Car- marthen alone, there are the Bronwydd, the Maesgwyne, the Tregib, the Pantykendy, and the Carmarthen packs ef foxhounds. SIR JAMES WILLIAMS AND THE GAME LAWS.—Sir James Williams, of Edwinsford, has set the liberal ex- ample in this County, of giving his tenants permission to kill game on theit lands, or of inviting any qualified persons they think proper to do so. If this plan was generally adopted, the tenants having an interest in the game would, perhaps, soon make it plentiful and stay the ravages of those poachers and game destroyers (the so called game-keepers) who destroy more game than any other people in the country. PRICE OF PROVISIONS AND CARRIAGE AT CARMAR- THEN.—A leg of the smallest Welsh mutton may be purchased for half a crown in the Carmarthen market, but the cost of its carriage to London by the cheapest coach (if by the mail it would be more) is three shillings and sixpence (with booking 3s. 8d.) add to it carriage, porterage, and the little bit of mutton that cast only half a crown at Carmarthen stands in the consumer at London somewhere about 9s. or three times cost price. Ihis small fact may lead to sundry speculations con- cerning the advantage of the South Wales Railway. THE CONJUROR'S CLAIM.—It has been represented to us by our well-beloved Punch, prince of fun and de- fender of mirth, that a French philanthropist has just left a legacy to be distributed amongst journalists the most distinguishellfor dulness, incapacity, & chronicling only small beer. Now, is not there a capital opportunity for the conjuror. What journalist can compete with the Carmarthen Conjuror for the distinction ? Let only any one Journal be sent and it is sure to get the legacy. THE PEMBROKESHIRE HOUNDS.—These hounds it appears have entitled themselves to the distinction of being a gallant pack." Amongst other achievements, a recent one is recorded by a clever writer, who says it was one of the most exciting ever seen. The time from Reynard's first facing the open, until his requiem was performed, occupied forty-five minutes. The field was not very numerous, but straight riding was the order of the day." MAJOR DOWNES'S ADDRESS AT HAVERFORDWEST.— [From a Correspondent.]—On Tuesday the 19th inst., the mayor held a court in the Town Hall, far the pur- pose of electing a councilman instead of Mr. W. Rees, who has lately been elected an alderman. Mr. Henry Tasker being the only person who had intimated a wish to fill the vacant office, was elected without any op- position, with the exception of Major Downes, who has employed his leisure hours during the last few days, in soliciting the suffrages of his friends. It is, how- ever, to be regretted, that they did not respond to the polite solicitations. After Mr. Tasker had returned thanks, the gallant major rose, and addressed the bur- gesses as follows :—Brother Burgesses, I again stand before you as a defeated, but yet not disgraced indivi- dual. Had I consulted personal comfort and domestic happiness, I should long ago have retired into the peaceful bosom of my family, instead of attempting to enter public life, but the prevailing entreaties of my friends, combined with a warm, a thrilling desire to serve you (out), pushed me forwaid to the contest. But instead of responding to my heartfelt appeals, you basely—yes meanly deserted me. It would be folly to take a review of the late elections-to reflect on the defeat I have twice endured-first, by "juniors" of plebian blood, and then by one whose lineage has been traced hack to parties as free from Gentile blood as mine is from that which flows in the veins of Jew. It is true, that I presented no tempting glass to your view-no walking snuff-box harrassed you for your votes—no hireling did I engage to escort you to the poll, and thence to the tap. r, No, I acted worthy of my standing and wealth, and hence my defeat. Had you thought proper to elect me, I can venture to say, no member of the council would have been more active in your service than he who now addresses you, and my conduct should have been characterized by as much punctuality as has even marked me in my professional pursuits, or as if you had entrusted to me the sole care of the town clock; but you have thought otherwise, and I am deprived of the happiness I should have felt in servipg you, of the felicity I should have enjrtyed in filling that old arm chair" which has been so recently vacated by one who has retired for want of space. In conclusion, it is due to a worthy friend of mine, a fine spoken man, to state that he neither penned my last address, nor that of my friend Robbin-no, they were the original effusions of our own craniums-the pure sentiments of our own hearts. Base indeed must have been that calumniator who invented such a falsity, well knowing that both of us have far too exalted an idea of the onerous duty of councillors, than to send forth to the world sentiments which found their origin in other brains than our own. As no one has voted for me, I have no one to thank-I have every one to censure. You have deprived yourselves of the services of one whose heart has ever palpitated, whose pulse has ever throbbed" within the precincts of his native town, and although he is rejected, still feels the same interest in the welfare of that place where he first breathed the air of heaven, and which has ever since that period been the scene of all his joys and woes. The gallant major sat down amidst roars of applause. The thanks of the meeting being given to the mayor for his impartial con- duct in the chair, the assembly quietly dispersed. I MERTIIYR.—Several of our fellow townsmen, who have the misfortune to be troubled with that dreadful malady, yclept nervousness, were thrown into some de- gree of consternation last week, by seeing a constable (from Carmarthenshire it was reported) patroling our streets, with a huge cutlass hanging at his side. From enquiries which we made, we were informed that he came to this den of bad characters" in plain clothes for two prisoners, whom he succeded in apprehending, with the assistance, we are told, of some of the con- stabulary police of this town. Having secured his prisoners, this strange constable enveloped himself with his uniform, a short top coat, and the said terrific cut- his un i form, a r lass by his side, so that the inhabitants of the town who were not nervous made a laughing stock of him. It was remarked by some that the Glamorganshire con- stabulary force stationed in this district, containing about 50 thousand inhabitants, are able to keep the po- pulation in the greatest order merely with a truncheon, a weapon far more harmless than a cutlass. It is doubtful with many that the Secretary of State, the Lord Lieutenant of the county, or even the magnani- mous chief constable of Carmarthenshire, should allow allow such subordinate creature to exhibit a weapon so dangerous within the frontiers of Glamorgan, especially at a time when Rebecca is not even heard of in his own country. ABERYSTWITH.-Last Tuesday being the wedding day of John Pugh Pryse, Esq., the youngest son of Pryse Pryse, Esq., M.P. for the Cardiganshire Boroughs, the morning was ushered in by ringing of bells and firing of cannons. Llanbadarn bells were vocal before dawn, and were not silent till after dark. The guns on the pier as well as on board the vessels in the harbour were all day proclaiming the happy event in vollies by no means-few nor far between while the colours on the mast heads were streaming with the gale and wafting to the happy pair, the good wishes of the town and neighbourhood. In the evening a party of the bridegroom's friends sat down to a sumptuous dinner at the Gogerddan Arms, where the health of the new married couple was drank with acclamation. Capt. Lloy4 Philipps, presided on the occasion, with his ul'ual tact and good humour, John Parry, Esq., making rm excellent Vice Chairman. QUICK PASSAGE.—The Maria, Cnpt. Corrigall, from Quebec, arrived in Milford, on the 21st inst., with a cargo of timber for Mr. J. Marychurch, of Haverford- west, after a favorable passage of 34 days, making the voyage out and home, in the short space of 3 months. The Lord High Chancellor has recently appointed Charles Parry, Esq., Solicitor, of Aberystwyth, to be deputy coroner for the county of Cardigan, under 6th and 7th Victoria. Very large quantities of potatoes have been shipped from Liverpool to New York. If the export continues the stocks in that neighbourhood will be considerably reduced.

MATRIMONIAL HOAX.—Since Sunday last much con- versation has been occasioned in the town of Uxbridge by a matrimonial hoax. It appears that in the Maid- stone Gazette of the 9th instant was inserted an ad- vertisement headed To Ladies," wherein the advertiser expressed his desire to become acquainted with a ladv, with a view to a matrimonial union the lady was to be possessed of a small competency, and willing to take as a husband a man between 45 and 50 years of age, in independent circumstances, and not unprepossessing in appearance, and requesting any lady who might wish for an interview to address a letter to Mr. Stone, No. 99, Old-street, St. Luke's, which is closely adjoining the hospital for lunatics. The advertisements attracted the attention of a shopman to a cheesemonger of Uxbridge, who wrote a letter to the above address, signing it as Angelina Frances," expressing an earnest desire to have an interview with the adviser, and requesting that he would on the following Sunday come down to Ux- bridge by the High Wycombe coach, which changes horses at half-past twelve o'clock at the King's Arms Inn, near the market house, and requesting him to wear a flower in the button-hole of his coat, have a white pocket handkerchief in his right hand,- and to be reading a book as the coach passed through the town to the inn. On Sunday the shopman was at the spot appointed, while numbers of his companions, to whom he had men- tioned the hoax, were secreted at short distances, awaiting the arrival of the coach. At half-past twelve the coach drew up, and on the box was sitting a re- spectably dressed individual, exhibiting the desired flower, book, and handkerchief. Directly the horses were changed, and the coach was again on its journey, the sbilpman accosted Mr. Stone, and representing himself to be Miss Angelina Frances's brother, ex- pressed on the part of his sister the deep regret she felt at having been prevented from keeping the appoint- ment; but the fact was, that her papa not having gone to church that morning she was unable to leave the house, but that she would without fail meet him at half-past two o'clock. Mr. Stone appeared to be much disappointed, but agreed to accompany the young man in a walk about the town. The latter, however led his victim in the direction of Uxbridge- moor, whither his companions had gone before, and on their coming up with them a general cry was raised of That's him," when Mr. Stone was hus- tled and pushed from one to the other in the crowd, and, notwithstanding his entreaties that they would not hurt him, he was forced into an old gravel pit half filled with water, where it is stated he was pelted by the mob with stones and mud. A man named Charles Henwood, gardener to Mr Richard Fell, a wealthy Quaker, and another of that gentleman's servants, were accidentally present, and used their utmost endeavours to rescue the man from the violence of his assailants, in which they eventually succeeded, and conducted him to the cottage on the moor. Mr. Fell, on being made acquainted with the particulars of the outrage, took great interest in the matter, and in the afternoon conveyed Mr. Stone,- who is stated to have formerly been clerk to one of the coroners for Middlesex, in his carriage to the West Drayton Station of the Great Western Railway, on his way to town. Before leaving Uxbridge, Mr. Stone went to the station-house of the T division and gave information of the outrage, and yester- day the magistrates' room at the King's Arms Inn was crowded by the inhabitants, it having been reported that application would be made for warrants against the parties concerned in the outrage. No application, how ever, was made.
