PEMBROKE BOROUGHS ELECTION.—This election took place on Saturday last. The proceedings were very tame in consequence of Capt. Child having withdrawn for reasons stated in his address. After the officer of the court had read the Act of Parliament, &c., the Mayor called on the electors to nominate candidates when after a pause, Wm. Richards, Esq., of Tenby, rose and said, Brother Electors,—I beg to propose Sir John Owen, Bart., as a fit and proper person to repre- sent these Boroughs in Parliament. His political career of 38 years is before you and his votes in Parliament have I think given great satisfaction. Mr. Jos. W. Paynter, surgeon, Pembroke, said, I beg to second the proposition of my friend Mr. Richards, and hope if Sir John Owen is returned again, he will go unshackled by pledges to Parliament and vote on all occasions according to his own judgment. No other candidate having been proposed, the Mayor declared Sir John Owen, Bart., duly elected. About sixty or seventy persons (including several well-dressed females) were in the body of the hall; but with the exception of the proposers, not a single individual of the slightest political influence or politico, importance attended the meeting, and the whole proceeu ;,r ii only occupied twenty minutes. THE HARVEST.—Several farmers in the neighbour- hood of Fishguard have commenced cutting barley. The crops are very abundant and of a good quality. SOUTH WALES RAILWAY.-The landowners and oc- cupiers of land between Cross Inn and Priskelly, near Fishguard, have had twenty-one days' notice to quit, for the purpose of commencing the works on that part of the line.
-n_- n CARDIGANSHIRE. n I THE ELECTION OF A MEMBER FOR THE I BOROUGHS OF CARDIGAN, &c. On Saturday last, a meeting of the electors of Cardi- Ran and its contributary boroughs was held at the Shire Hall, Cardigan, pursuant to notice from Matthew Davies, Jlsq., the High Sheriff for the county, for the purpose of electing a Member to serve in Parliament. The meeting was very numerously and respectably alttended by some of the most influential inhabitants of tbe town. F. R. Roberts, Esq., of Aberystwith, the L'nder-Sheriff, presided in the absence of the High Sheriff, who was unable to attend the meeting. The Under-Sheriff having read the writ, authorising the election of a member for the Borough of Cardigan, "ld the usual proclamations and preliminaries having been gone through, Thomas Lloyd, Esq., of Coedmore, rose, and in a "fief and very appropriate address proposed their long tried and much respected member, Pryse Pryse, Esq., of Gogerddan, as a fit and proper candidate to represent them in the ensuing Parliament. The proposal was received with great applause, and was seconded in a neat speech by the Rev. Griffith Thomas, of Cardigan. After waiting the usual time, and no other candidate appearing, the Under Sheriff declared Pryse Pryse, Esq. duly elected. Pryse Pryse, Esq., jun., of Gogerddan, son of the fleeted member, then came forward, and stated in consequence of the highly dangerous illness of e of his sons, his father was reluctantly compelled to fQ fego the pleasure of once more addressing his con- eo tut>nts and returning them thanks for again reposing ence in him, and entrusting their interests to his eeplng by re-electing him as their representative in -lament. He was deputed by his father to assure b.en\ that the same watchful attention to their interests by which he bad obtained such marked approbation rOJn them, and the proud distinction of so often being ^elected, should unceasingly be exerted whilst he had e honour of being their representative. In the name of his father he begged to return them cordial thanks 0" the distinguished position in which they had for the tenth occasion placed him. This address was received with enthusiastic cheering. On the motion of Dr. Nugent, three times three beers for the newly elected member were given with earty good will by every person present. After a vote of thanks to the under-sheriff, the j feting separated. THE DINNER. j Q On Monday last at the Hotel, near 60 persons sat ¡ }:I°\n to a most splendid dinner on the occasion of Mr. tJs being returned for the 10th time to represent the v/?rdigan Boroughs in Parliament, upon which occasion nl.

There were several of the parents of the children present, together with the committee of management. The examination lasted about three hours, and the result reflected the highest credit upon the master, Mr. John Jenkins, and the ex- cellence of the system of tuition was fairly tested and approved of. Mr. Jenkins examined the children in arithmetic, English grammar, history, geography, and natural philosophy and the answers of the pupils were very satisfactory. The present school is already too small, and many applications for admittance have been consequently refused for want of room. The committee have therefore determined forthwith to erect more ex- tensive premises at Aberystwith, on land kindly granted them by Pryse Pryse, Esq., the worthy representative of the Cardiganshire boroughs, whose kindness on all occasions is proverbial. ABERYSTWITH NEW COUNTY COURT.-This Court was held at the Town Hall, on Thursday the 29th ult. The learned Judge, Arthur James Johnes, Esq. sat during the whole of that and the ensuing day. There were 111 causes set down for hearing, and to have gone through so many during two days, evinces a patience and perseverance in the Judge, which is deserving of the greatest commendation. There was a horse cause heard which excited considerable interest, and the parties, John Griffiths v. David Evans, deemed it sufficiently important to have a jury's opinion upon it. The facts were very intricate. Both plaintiff and defend- ant claimed a property in the horse—each relying on separate agreements respectively made between each of them, and one Evan Lewis. The point turned in a great measure upon the construction of that agree- ment. The Judge having summed up at some length in favour of the defendant, the jury after a short de- liberation returned a verdict according to the direction of the learned Judge. Amongst the other notabilities during the sitting was the cause Sarah Blackwell v. Morgan Jones, for an assault; the damages were laid at C2, which the prosecutrix recovered with costs. The Judge severely animadverted upon the brutal conduct of the defendant Jg&gBsaulting a young woman, and ex- pressed his det ??Mon always to award to plaintiffs in similar Actioiw? full amount of damages claimed. There was another assault case which excited consider- able interest. This was Morgau Morgans v. David Davies and his two men servants. The assault was on e turnpike road, about two miles from Aberystwith. he damages were laid at E5, for which judgment was given with costs, and the Judge intimated his belief that some of the defendants were guilty of what in legal language might amount to the crime of perjury. Mr. Attwood for the plaintiff, and Mr. F. R. Roberts for the defendant. The learned Judge has intimated his wish that no summons be issued or served in any case after the 12th day before the Court day, so that 10 clear days must elapse between service and trial, and that in most instances summonses be refused unless required of a much earlier period than the 12th day before the Court dav, with a view to provide for contingencies and for difficulties created by the nature of the country but the clerk is to exercise his discretion on that point. But no summons should be issued by the clerk in any case unless he believed that with reference to time and other circumstances, service of the summons may be effected with certainty. In case, however, of a sum- mons being applied for at a late period in the month, the responsibility of making the service effectual should be distinctly thrown on the applicant, and disclaimed by the clerk and bailiff; at the same time that the costs of summonses not effectually served, owing to their being applied for at a late and therefore inconsistent period of the month, shall generally fall on the plaintiff. His Honour's next sitting at Aberystwith will be on the 31st instant. "THE VALUE OF A BARLEY CAKE.Last week a cottage at Pendrin-coch, about 5 miles north of Aber- ystwith, was burnt down under the following circum- stances. The good woman of the house" (Jenny Rees) having with great industry gathered some furze for fuel, and placed them in her garden, found them daily or rather nightly diminishing in a manner which she could not explain upon any hypothesis that was creditable to her neighbours' honesty. Jenny, therefore, resolved to stow" the furze in doors, making a snug little pile of them in an cdd corner of her cottage. Last week the good dame was busily employed in baking her humble barley cake, the iron griddle was placed upon its classical tripod (tribedd) and the fire beneath was replenished by an occasional pull upon the furze pile. The consequence was inevitable; the furze in the corner at all times too near the fire now became doubly so by being connected by a train formed of the small pulverized furze, which being dry, was almost as ignitable as gunpowder. Our friend Jenny having occasion to go out she put a glorious tan-Uwyth of furze under the griddle but on her return she was horrified to see the cottage filled with a dense column of smoke rendering all ingress impossible. The neigh- bours came to the spot, for by this time flames were seen coming out of the chimney, and immediately afterwards bursting out through the door. Poor Jenny was quite bewildered but she was soon brought to herself by that which from the time of Alfred the Great to the present day, is the touchstone of the good housewife's temper- her loaf was burning—the furze in the corner had taken fire and opened a communication with the griddle —the griddle began to be too hot and the barley cake to burn, and the burning soon became apparent to Jenny's nicely attuned olfactories, for in an agony of womanly vexation, she cried out (fy nhorth, fy nhorth, &c.,) my loaf, my loaf, oh, save my loaf. In spite of her neigh- bours' advice, in spite of the smoke, and in spite of the flames, she rushed into the flaming cottage and snatched the loaf from the conflagration and bronght it out in triumph, with her hair and the greater part of her dress in flames. She was caiefully looked after by her neigh- bours, and as she is too poor a woman to be nervous" she was next day quite herself again. Her husband who was a cripple in bed was carried out of the flames by the efforts of the neighbours with only a slight injury. The only drawback to Jenny's satisfaction is that it is whispered through the village that she seemed more anxious to secure the loaf than her husband. To this she replied that when she saw her husband through the courage of her neighbours snatched from so much danger, she thought she should venture something to save'the loaf for their supper, without having to beg from their neighbours. All the furniture of the cottage is burnt, but that of the one adjoining is saved though much damaged by being removed in so much confusion. The flames did not extend further than the two cottages. ABERYSTWITH.—THE SEASON.—The extreme fine- ness of the weather has caused this fashionable watering place to be thronged with company; and the coaches to the different hotels are filled with passengers, all eager to inhale the salubrious breezes of its sea-girt shores. Casting the horoscope of the races, there seems to be no doubt of their being first rate.

ABERAYRON.-ON Wednesday, the 28th ultimo, the members of the Odd Fellows Lodge at this place, held their anniversary at the Red Lion. After attending divine worship in the morning, they perambulated through the streets of the town, attended by the Cardiganshire Minstrels." They afterwards re- turned to the lodge room, and partook of an excellent dinner, which did credit to the host, Mr. Lewis Davies, and was done justice to by the guests. The chair was ably filled by brother J. N. Evans, Esq. The cloth having been removed, several loyal toasts were proposed and duty responded to; the evening's amusement was enlivened by the beautiful playing of the band, and the company separated at an early hour.

NR„C»™>^N THUNDER Sroitm.-Oii Wednesday last, the town of Cardigan and neighbourhood was visited by a terrific thunder storm which continued unceasingly for nearly three houis. The lightning was most vivid and awful the rain descended in torrents, many houses in the lower parts of the town were completely flooded, There had been some slight rain in the course of the day, but nothing to indicate the dreadful storm which suddenly burst over the town and neighbourhood. It is not known whether any damage has been done by the electric fluid, but it is much feared that the corn and other field crops are much injured by the heavy rain, which literally deluged upon them. CHARGE OF ASSAULT.—At a petty sessions held at the shire-liall, Cardigan, on Wednesday last, for the Lower Division of the Hundred of Troedyraur, before Herbert. Vaughan and Thomas Lloyd, Esqrs., Elizabeth Nicholas of Bronwynbach, in the parish of Llangoedmore, was charged by Elizabeth Davies, of Panteg, in the same parish, with having assaulted her. The offence having been fully proved, the defendant was fined 12s. 6d. for the assault, and lls. 6d. costs, or two weeks im- prisonment.
GLAMORGANSHIRE. I NEATH —On the news arriving here on Monday that Mr. Howell Gwyn, of Baglan Hall, and a native of this town, had been returned as one of the members for the united boroughs of Falmouth and Penryn, the church bells were rung merrily throughout the whole of the day. Mr. Gwyn is a considerable landowner in Glamorgan- shire, as well as in the adjoining counties of Breconshire and Carmarthenshire, and is highly and deservedly re- spected by all parties. NEATH FAIR was held on Saturday last. There was a good supply of horses and many exchanged owners at good prices. The supply of cattle and sheep was small, and very few sold. Wool averaged 9d. per lb. The attendance of holiday folks was much less than usual, which was probably owing to the hay season not being over in the country. NEATH PETTY SESSIONS, FRIDAY.—Before T.

The contract for the works connected with the South Wales Railway through the town of Neath, was let last week to Mr. William Kirkhouse, of Werngoed, agent to Mrs. Tennant, Cadoxton Lodge. This is about the shortest and most expensive contract upon the line it includes four bridges, viz., one over the river Neath; two over the canals, and one over the mail road, and for the most part consists of masonry.
GLAMORGANSHIRE ELECTION. The Election of two Members for this County took place at Bridgend, on Tuesday last. The day being exceedingly fine, the ladies did not neglect the oppor- tunity afforded them of witnessing the proceedings at the Election of two Knights of the Shire. The greatest dissatisfaction prevailed at Bridgend in consequence of the appearance on Sunday morning of a handbill, in- timating that the usual dinner to the electors would not be given, and that the chairing would be discon- tinued. The innkeepers were quite annoyed and dis- appointed, as several of them had made preparations anticipatory of the event. At a quarter before 11 o'clock, the proceedings com- menced. At this time a large concourse of county gentlemen and electors were assembled on and around the temporary hustings, which had been erected in front of the Town hall. Alex. Cuthbertson, Esq., the Deputy Sheriff, com- menced the proceedings by reading the writ, and going through the other necessary preliminaries; after which, N. V. E. Vaughan, Esq., the High Sheriff, addressing the electors, said that they were called together, by vir- tue of a writ which had been issued, for the election of two Knights of the Shire for the County of Glamorgan. If any gentleman had a candidate to propose, now was the time to do so. M. Popkin Traherne, Esq., then stepped forwar d, and said that the pleasing task devolved upon him of proposing a gentleman, as one of the members to serve them in the next Parliament. He could not name a better Representative than his friend Mr. Talbot-- (cheers) ;-a more honourable, upright, consistent man, or a better landlord, could not be found. He had there- fore much pleasure in proposing Christopher Rice Man- sel Talbot, Esq., as a fit and proper person to represent them in the next Parliament. (Renewed cheering.) Capt. Hewitt seconded the nomination. Sir George Tyler then advanced to the front of the hustings, and said that the assembly had been told by the High Sheriff, that they had met there to perform a duty vested in them, and which was one of the greatest importance—that of nominating and electing two mem- bers to represent them in Parliament for this county. The duty he (Sir George Tyler) had undertaken upon this occasion, he was sure, would meet not only with their approbation, but be viewed with the utmost satis- faction—with as much satisfaction as it gave him plea- sure and gratification. (Cheers.) He would propose to them, as their other member, the Viscount Adare. (Cheers.) That Noble Lord had for the last ten years been honored with their suffrages. During that period he had fulfilled the duties of the trust with the utmost earnestness, zeal, and ability. He (Sir George Tylgr) felt satisfied that there was no necessity for him to enter more largely into the merits or qualifications of his Noble Friend-they were well known to all the electors—more particularly to those who resided in this immediate neighbourhood. But there was one circum- stance which he would advert to—namely, that on the last occasion when Lord Adare presented himself upon the hustings, an event was then approaching which was felt to be of great moment to the agricultural interest of this county-the repeal of the Corn Laws. At tha d period many Members were returned on the exprrrfj understanding- he would not say pledged, for he d not approve of the term-but on the express under- standing that they would support and maintain the agricultural interests of the country. Those hustmgs promises were not fulfilled, and they all knew, the result. Why did he refer to the subject. Because the Noble Lord whom he had the honour of proposing had not failed in his duty towards his constituents. He had nobly fulfilled them-(Ilear, hear)-in voting fbr a continuance of those laws, or at least for a modified protection. (Hear.) He was indefatigable in con- tributing to the strengthening of our glorious consti- tution in Chuch and State in all its integrity. (Hear, hear.) Sir George concluded by proposing Lord Adare in the usual manner. Henry Thomas, Esq., then came forward, and said that he had the honour to second the nomination of Lord Adare as one of their representives in the next parliament—the highest honour that any citizen can receive in our country or in the world. Mr. Thomas addressed the meeting at considerable length, and con- cluded by seconding the nomination. The High Sheriff then asked if any other Elector had a candidate to propose, and receiving no answer, he declared Mr. Talbot and Viscount Adare to have been duly elected. Both the honourable members addressed the electors at some length, and explained their political sentiments, as did also Dr. Nicholl, M.P., J. H. Vivian, Esq., M.P., and other gentlemen. The usual declarations having been made by the Members, the proceedings terminated.
BRECON ELECTION. On Tuesday last, the day appointed for electing a member for the borough of Brecon, a large assembly was gathered in support of Lloyd Vaughan Watkins, Esq., the Lord Lieutenant. He Was received in the town with great demonstrations of respect, and ar- rived at the Town Hall at 11 o'clock, A.M. Henry Mayberry, Esq., Mayor, opened the court in his official capacity. J. Parry De Winton, Esq., proposed Lloyd Vaughan Watkins, in a very eloquent speech, to be the future representative for the borough, which Thomas Mere- dith, Esq., seconded. He was then proclaimed amidst loud cheers, the member for the borough. Lloyd Vauglan Watkins, Esq., returned his sincere thanks for the honour they had conferred upon him, as he now held the two most important situations he could be placed in, being Lord Lieutenant for the County, and member for the Borough, and also ex- i pressed his sentiments in favour of Free Trade. The meeting dissolved in a quiet manner, and the honourable member was chaired with the usual honours.
BRECONSHIRE ELECTION. On Wednesday last, Joseph Bailey, Esq., of Glanusk, Park, arrived at the Cattle Hotel, with his numerous tenants, being accompanied by Crawshay Bailey, Esq.'s brass band. He then procreded to the County Hall, and was there elected and proclaimed the member for the county of Brecon. John Jones, Esq., of Dinas, then rose to address the electors on behalf of the late member, and expressed his warmest thanks for the trust and support which Iley had given him during the forty years he represented them in Parliament, after which the meeting quietly separated. The member was then chaired in lue I'ovnt, and thr utmost
THE RIGHTS AND THE WRONGS OF ANIMALS. I To the Editor of the Welshman. 81 R,- The dog-days drawing to a close, the annual Mad-dog" paragraphs are going the round of the news- papers and as the place of Parliamentary debates requires filling, it is to be feared, that many of the canine race will soon go out of their minds many of the human, die from their bites and many more be in terror of their lives by the sitiht of a stray dog, or even one of these terrible' paragraphs. Be pleased to admit then, the following pleading for animals in general, and that race in particular, which forsakes its own to follow the human. How happened it, that the dog-the acknowledged friend, helpmate, follower, defender of man-has become a term of reproach, contempt, even hatred among men? The Christian dog," exclaims the Mahometan, to mark his dislike of our faith. "The heretical dog," says one Christian of another, to vent odium Theologicutn. Used like a dog"—" to lead the life of a dog," and a hundred similar modes of speech prove the ungrateful treatment this paragon of beasts receives at our hands. Nor is this strange contrast between mens' treatment and their sentiments, toward this friend of man, confined to one country or to one age. Even in that of Homer, we are told how those immortalised barbarians, Achilles and Agamemnon, quarrelling about a wench, the divine A called the royal A "a dog," or at least, as" impudent as a dog. Thus the modern injustice can plead a pre- cedent in classical antiquity. On the other hand the friend of dogs can proudly point to many ancient authors who have done justice to this ill used race. The same Homer while immortalizing Ulyses did not forget his dog, the little tragedy of whose dying recognition of his master is never forgotten by the reader of feeling. The why and because" of the dog having been pronounced an unclean animal by the Mosaic law, and classed with swine, eels, hares, and griffins, I presume not to enquire, but probably there existed some moral or physical objection to its flesh, or to its destruction for man's use, which history does not explain. To come down to modern times, let it be observed that there is hardly one of the most gifted mentally eminent characters of our day who has not left on record his attachment to the dog, above all animals. Byron, Scott, Southey (who in his Omniana, gives some interest- ing stories of dogs) are among the numerous instances. Of a few distinguished litteratems to Alhom-eh"ce- introduced the writer of this article (including Words- worth, Coleridge, Lamb, Jeffrey), every one expressed or evinced a decided fondness for domestic animals, and the dog as the chief. Prone as the common people are to mimickry of those above them, I have often wished that would-be gentlemen-ambitious" gents" —(commercial and others) would imitate those they emulate in this pleasing trait, and affect humanity, if they do not feel. On the contrary, many a biped puppy of Cockney land, who wears his collar a la Byron, will, unprovoked, kick his fourfooted brother, who corues to caress him, in such a brutish manner as the living Byron would have been ready to kick him for. Mr. D israeli, sen., might, I believe, have introduced that liking for dumb animals" which Byron assigns to his hero,Don Juan, as a characteristic in his inimitable anato- my of the Literary Character." Indeed affection toward so affectionate a follower—so more than htif-reason- ing" an one—that no ill-usage can estrange—no hard- ships drive to seek an easier life, one as fond and faith- ful to the blind beggar he leads and begs for, as is his happier poodle brother, of the dog-aristocracy to his titled mistress,—I say affection to such a friend, is but the natural feeling of those who think and can feel- and Thought and Feeling are fostered by literary pur- suits and their necessary quietitudp., as surely as they are dissipated by any boisterous pursuit—(that of foxes and hares for instance.) By the ivay, I would almost stake my life (my dog's life however,) upoa the fact that the worthyEditor of this paper, The Welshman, is a lover of dogs in his heart-that he looks complacently on this very pleading of their unpaid Counsel, and will forego for once his Editorial wish to cur-tail it. The Welsh, (I regret to say) sin against the scriptura injunction of shewing mercy to beasts, to a disgusting degree, for that cruelty to animals is a moral offence needs no argument. In the bitterest nights of winters—into deep snow, or flooding thaw, the poor dog of the Welsh farmer goes shivering forth, when the master retires to his warm blankets and bed after the poor animal's tendering him- self before a huge fire. The creature who has been collecting his sheep and performing services that even a paid human creature could not, all icicles, or all dripping, as he may be, is driven forth, and the doors shut against him, for the long bitter night. Few who have ever been housed in a Welsh farm-house, can have escaped a provoking (because utterly unnecessary) aa- noyance, in the alternate barking and moaning of the poor dogs, round the premises. What should prevent their remaining under cover, at least, I could never discover. The dirtiest old kitchens are equally forbidden ground all night, with the cleanest, nor is even an outhouse left for the most useful animal attached to a farm. If the ignorance of the rustic owner leads him to consider all beasts" as a sort of inachines-living, automata, stirred by something called iiistinct -(which, I believe is the general idea of the vulgar about animals) still, he must perceive, that they suffer, whether they reason, or do not—have feeling bodies, whether they possess souls, or do not-and therefore his cruelty is not the less culpable. I firmly believe, that a great part of the shocking cruelty inflicted on so many animals, is owing t.( t.be gross ignorance in which the masses of uneducated persons remain, till death, respecting the ditfereace be- tween themselves and beasts." I suppose I should startle religious readers, were I, from myself, to assert that dogs have souls but when I refer them to Grotias, in the very work which defends the Christian Religion-to his religious commentator, Le Clerc, (not to name many other great Christian writers) their surprise will be moderated, The great Grotius says expressly, that the actions of dogs can no otherwise be explained, than by their possessing a degree of reason. Le Clerc, in remarking on that passage, dissents from the further observation of Grotious that it is a kind of fùreign-extraneous Reason. No"—his learned and pious commentator observes, their actions are performed by the souls of tlwse beasts, which are so far reasonable as to do such things and not others. But you will ask me what becomes of the souls of brutes when they die ?" That question is, doubtless, in the reader's mind. I wish all readers would imitate the candour and humanity of the learned, pious, and deeply- thinking Le Clerc. Mark his r. That indeed I know not. But it is not the less true that souls do reside in them. Waiving all grouping in the eternal dark of our finite understanding, round the mystery of a soul's nature, leaving the sensitive and mortal soul of Aristotle's tlieory-nletllinks,tliis positive recognition of a soul in animals, by so wise and religious a man as the great Le Clerc of Reason in thein, by the renowned Grotius ought almost to horrify and turn aghast and abashed every dog-persecutor who reads this passage, recollecting that in the recorded opinion of men so well qualified to pronounce one, it is a being with a soul that he is persecuting It is a soul that watches his house by night, follows his steps by day! -that is so grateful for mere mercy,—so delighted bv a caress understands f a smile and a kind tone, reads the human countenance so anxiously, that it is a soul which shines up through its beautiful eyes upturned to ours I say this alone ought to abash and reform the cruel biped, who is so proud of being rational, who inflicts pains and wan- ton death on such a creature, so manifestly given to him by God himself, as a humble companion and helpmate." A word on the past history of popular opinion on the moral nature of brutes. The mental faculties so many of them exert (the dog and elephant for example) could not fail to impress a belief of their partaking much of our own nature. Hence Aristotle allowed them a mortal soul, that is, a lower degree of Thinking Power, which the believers in a future state consider to be immortal, and independent of the body, in man. But then stepped in the jealousy of Theological schoolmen, who feared that if the least reasoning power were admitted without spirituality as the agent—if matter—if the material brain of a brute were admitted to produce the pheno- mena of Thought, one argument for the immortality of the soul must be given up. So they pronounced oracu- larly ex cathedra, that animals (man excepted) do not think !-in spite of our senses which assure us that they" do Thus Dr. Young opens his Night Thoughts, with an argument for the immateriality of Thought and hence indestructibility of our minds, -drawn from- (rismu tenealis?) oiu- dreaming 1 Did the Reverend poet never watch a dog fast asleep, evidently in a dream, barking, hunting, moaning, &c. } Now this jealousy of our own dog's soul, as trenching on the immortal pre- rogative of our own, is most idle. Have we not Reve- I lation ? Is not that sufficient to believers ? Who does not prefer Faith to Reason ? Faith absolutely vanishes, if you admit Reason. Credo quid impossible est," is the dictum of a Father of the Church—Tertuflian. I believe it because it is impossible" To return to the topic of former opinions about beasts. Des Cartes, with his usual paradoxical zeal, has maintained that monstrous theory, which I have said is prevalent among the modern vulgar, that the lower living world consists of mere m^iines actuated by something they call instinct, not self-actuated, (which doctrine, by the way, elevates them far above men, as such foreign reason as Grotius expresses it, can be nothing but God!) The brute automata of Des Cartes, created a mighty controversy. Gomez Pereird, a Spa- nish physician of the 16th century, had put forth this doctrine long before, but wanting the celebrity of the philosopher of the vortices, &c., obtained little notice. The school philosophers and Christian Theologitits maintain that the souls of men and beasts differ, that of beasts is merely capable of sensation, not thought- that the animal merely seeks what is either pleasing or necfssary to its existence, &c. How can this be main- tained in the face of facts, present and past, establishing the mental faculty of dogs ? The dog of a Roman Subiuus who fell under the cruelty of Tibernus swam out to the dead body of his master, floating in the Tyber, and stayed swimming round it, till he sunk exhausted and was drowned. Was that fidelity even to death, without thought ? A dog kept from home well fed, and well treated will exhibit the extreme of distress—from what? The mere thought of his beloved home and master, An affecting instance recurs to my memory, which as occurring near the good town of Carmarthen, may not unfitly be introduced. Mrs. J —- a widow ladv who c.-sHK. I i.„— dogs for their own sakes, not for the hares or other vermin they may catch, had a favourite, that being pro- voked tore a labourer's trowser and made believe" to bite his leg inside She applied golden ointment to his grievance, and his luck becoming known, the dog's assaults multiplied, as did the assaults on the lady's purse, so fast that she was advised to send him away to a farm-house, where he suffered confinement by a chain. Though wanting nothing except his home and mistress, the poor prisoner pined and died very shortly. I wish I could hope to persuade my readers, that to wrong crea- tures so capable of love to Man, is a disgrace to Man, but I fear that this my pleading will appear already too long to all but Builth. ♦— D.
FATAL ACCIDEST.-On Wednesday evening Mr. Bedford held an inquest at the White Hart, Little Windmill-street, Haymarket, on the body of Jane Yeo, aged 20, who died from the effects of an almost unpre- cedented nature. The deceased, it appeared, was danc- ing across the room, amusing her sister, when, falling over a box, her throat came in contact with a wash-hand basin on the floor, and broke it. One of the pieces of it entered her throat, and inflicted a fatal wound. Verdict, "Accidental Death." WATCH AND PRAY.—THE WASHINGTON TREATY OF 1812.-In the dinner speech of Mr. Webster at Savannah, we find the following anecdote Mr. Fox's (the English minister's) habits, was to convert day into night, and seven o'clock in the afternoon was early in the morning for him. At honest Quaker said to me, I hope thee and friend Fox will watch and pray for peace.' Yea, friend,' was my reply, I will keep the day watch and he will keep the night watch.' MORAL ADVANTAGES OF CRICKET. Within the last two years it has been in the knowledge of the author that there are many clergymen in different parts of the kingdom who have been endeavouring to cultivate cricket in their respective localities, from a conviction, in common with himself, that a vast moral good is to be achieved by a general introduction of the game amongst all classes. It prevents any addiction to intoxi- cation, because those who wish to excel must, to a certain extent, if not entirely, eschew excess. Its cha- racteristics, too, are the cultivation of a fine healthy and athletic exercise in the open air a commingling, as he has often before stated, of all grades, the one with the other; combined also with the knowledge that if a man desires to stand well either as an operator in the game or with his superiors, his habits must be regular and steady and his conduct and demeanour respectful and proper. There is nothing so good as to let a man discover, by mixing with his betters in the common pastimes of his country, with those to whom he ought to look up, that course of conduct which it is the best for him to pursue. The author has known many instances where the dissolute have, by being allowed to meet their pastor and the gentlemen of their neighbourhood at cricket, become excellent members of society. He has known those who, instead of at- tending to religious worship, have, on the contrary, spent most if not the whole of a Sunday in a public house, turn from their ways and become regular reci- pients of religious instructions by a constant occupation of a seat in their parish church. He has known men whose dispositions have, from untoward circumstances, been of a wavering character, as between honesty and dishonesty, by being permitted to mingle with those above them in point of wealth and station, become fixed in the former. Surely the clergyman who ad.)pts such a course as shall lead to the accomplishment of these objects does no more than perform one portion of the duty of his sacred calling. Teach a man, how- ever uneducated, by association, example and kindness, what is expected of him, aud what his real duties are —let him mix with men of education on a proper footir.g-and the associations in a national game liJie cricket is one of the first-and his natural pereception will very quickly point out to him what those duties are.Dansun's Cricketer's Companion.

IN introducing this Society to the notice of the public, _N it is only necessary to state, that the West London Dissenters Building Association was formed in January, 8-t6, to afford to the public the privileges and advan- tages of a well organized Society and the result of the first twelve months operation, has more than convinced the Directors of the correctness and soundness of the principles and course adopted. The successful progress of THE WIIST AND SOLTTIT LONDON DISSENTERS BUILDING ASSOCIATION, in which the abolition of the redemption fee, chargeable when bor- rowing is the leading feature and the hii^h opinion en- tertained hy the Public generally of Societies based upon similar principles, have induced many of the Di- rectors and Friends to establish this Institution, and j perhaps the best argument in favor of the principles and management of the same, is the fact, that at the ex- piration of the first year those members who parted with their Shares realized 25 per cent. upon their deposits. The following constitute some of the objects contem- plated by this Association :—To open channels for the lucrative investment of large or small sums —To relieve chapels and schools from their liabilities, by paying oft' debts at once, and letting the money thus advanced be repaid to this Society by easy monthly instalments,—To afford an opportunity, to the individual in humble cir- cumstances, of bettering his condition, by enabling him to purchase the house in which lie resides with its own rent. To give a careful and provident community all the security of Savings Banks, with a largely increased amount of interest for their deposits.—In these stirring times of political and commercial enterprise, it is well V3 bear in mind that purchasers of property through a Building Society may obtain votes for members of Par- liament. Prospectuses may be obtained of the Rev. J. T. Jones, Blue Street. nJ:l,.m"Th"n f"M- .H TO THE INDEPENDENT ELECTORS OF THE I UNITED BOROUGHS OF 'cARMAiiTHEN AND LLANELLY.

Just Published, in One Volume, price 12s. 6d., THE PRACTICE OF THE COURT OF CHAN- i CERY, UNDER THE ORDERS OF MAY, 1845. EDITED by JOHN ROGERSON, a Solicitor of the Court. Thia work contains all the cases decided upon the above Orders, and an elaborate index, including a table of the times cf procedure. W Altogether we can recommend the book as supplying a want much felt at this time by every practitioner in the Court of Chancery. To articled clerks prepariMtfor ex- amination it will he of ?reat service as an e-M?fnd ex- pla"nat()ry elucidation of Orders which have puzzled old and experienced practitioners."—Law 7V//?, May 22, 1847. This is an exceedingly useful, and we doubt not will prove a very popular work. Since the period when the Orders of May, 1815, came into operation, a vast number of decisions materially changing the old practice of Courts of Equity have been delivered by the different Judges, but have not yet appeared in the volumes of re- ports one effect of this perhaps unavoidable delay has been to render useless to some extent the established treatises on practice, while in more than one instance it has led to a conflict in the interpretation of the new Orders by the J udes. Jlr. Rogerson's work bids fair to flet rid oj both these untoward events. All the cases which determine, so far as it is determined, the sense of the Orders of May, 184o, are collected with great care, and are appended to the several orders to which each decision relates. The book is indeed a most valuable adjunct to Smitli'sor Daniell's Practice. "-The Standard; May 28, 1817. This work is well timed the equity practitioner is here supplied with tauch valuable information and assis- tance.Legal Observer, June 19, 1847. An examination of this book will prove that Mr. Rogerson has acquitted himself of his task with very great ability. The work has been evidently prepared with great care, the arrangement is excellent, and the form in which the orders and notes have been printed is in itself an attraction. The editor, from the position which he fills, seems to be thoroughly acquainted with the value to the practitioner of facility of reference, and nothing can be more striking to the eye than the typo- graphical auxiliaries which have been employed besides which there is a full and complete index."—Morning Chronicle, June 30.

Messrs. BROCKSOPP, HOW, & Co., of 233 and 234, High-Street, Southwark, London, feel confident that their standing in the Tea Market will be considered as the best guarantee for the superiority of their articles, and as distinguishing them from puffing adventurers of the day. The Ilowqua's Mixture of 40 rare Black Teas is now reduced to 5s. 8d. per lb. CATTY PACKAGE, and the Mowqua small-leaf Gunpowder, to 8s. Od. per lb. CATTY PACKAGE. Half and Quarter Catties may be had. To meet the requirements of Families in Great Britain, the managers of Howqua's and Mowqua's estates have commenced shipping a SECOND GROWTH called SEMI-HOWQUA, which, while partaking of all the distinguishing qualities of the original, is, all being more economical, better adapted for ordinary consumption.

be found also in schedule A, of the reform bill. Before that measure was passed the great men of this country had it in their power to send to parliament their own nominees by means of their footmen and coachmen, with whom the elective franchise was then entrusted, and it was in the hands of those nominees, so elected, that the interests of this great country were confided. For 50 years the liberal party struggled against this abuse, and in 1831 they succeeded in passing the reform bill, which removed the disgraceful stigma from the statute book, and placed the elective franchise in the hands of free and independent men. Mr. Evans then referred to the municipal corporation act, and some other measures passed by the liberal party. He then proceeded I go to parliament as your representa- tive to further this great cause,-watch me attentively, examine my votes. You shall have opportunities of personally questioning me as to my parliamentary conduct. I shall come often among you. You shall have a reason of the hope that is in me," and to the humblest elector, or non-elector, will I be ready to state the reasons of my votes. (Loud cheers.) I am friendly to the present administration. I consider them as identified with the men who have carried all the great measures of reform which have been brought about during the last fifty years, amidst the greatest struggles and difficulties; to those men I confess I am attached, not that I go as the slave of any man, or of any ministry, but, as an independent man, I will act with those who have always been the friends of freedom and, I have no doubt, that if they are allowed to carry out their measures they will prove beneficial to you and your children. The learned gentleman then sat down amidst loud cheers. The usual formal documents were then executed, after which the honourable and learned member perambulated the principal streets of the town on horseback, accom- panied by his friends and supporters, preceded by two bands of music. We are glad to find that Mr. Evans set an example worthy of being followed on similar occasions. Instead of bestowing his liberality in producing dissipation and diunkenness, he generously presented £5 to each of the churches and dissenting chapels in Haverfordwest and the contributary boroughs of Narberth and Fishguard.
