PEMBROKESHIRE. I ACCIDENTS.—Two accidents of a rather serious nature oc- curred near Narberth, a few days ago. The first and most serious happened to Mr. Thomas Muir, of Robeston-wathen, who was thrown out of his cart with such violence, by reason of its going over a precipice, that the injuries received, for a time threatened, to prove fatal; but we are happy. to state that by the unremitting attention of Roger Lewis, Esq., surgeon, he is. now getting a little better. The other hap- pened to the Rev. J. W. James, Robeston, and Dr. T. G. Bush, on their way from the Narberth Road Station. It ap- pears that rest and good living had made such an impression upon the spirit of their horse that when he was required to go he would not allow those in authority to play tricks upon him with impunity, for no sooner was the whip applied than away went the steed with such velocity, that it was impossible to manage him, and whilst making a turn in the road he fell, and the riders were violently thrown upon an embankment, which occasioned a few slight bruises, but we are glad to state nothing more serious occurred. NARBERTH PETTY SESSIONS were held in the Town Hall on the 13th inst., before J. L. G. P. Lewis, Esq., and the Rev. R. Buckby, the business of which consisted in appoint- ing constables for the different parishes of the Hnndred, and the issuing of two distress warrants for nonpayment of poor-rate. The Right Hon. Lord Milford will, it is said, in June next, lead to the hymeneal alter the lovely and accomplished Lady Annie Howard, daughter of the Earl of Wicklow. The :>bJ'] pair intend making Picton Castle their resident seat. Mr. J. B. Hemming delivered a lecture on Astronomy and Electricity, in the Market-hall, Haverfordwest, on Monday last. HAVERFORDWEST RAILWAY STATION. On Sunday last the danger signal at the Haverfordwest station was wilfully altered, the wires were pulled and strained so as to be useless, and a stone, about six inches in diameter, was placed in the catch: About eleven o'clock a.m., the station master, Mr. Besant, was passing, and fortunately discovered the deed. HAVERFORDWEST.—The newly-appointed auditors, Messrs. White and Blethin, were sworn in on Monday, before 1\11" Alderman Davies and Mr. Marychurch, assisted by Mr. Hughes, the treasurer; and the accounts for the current half- year were examined and audited. HAVERFORDWEST.—The Gas Commissioners are construct- ing a flight of steps alongside the east side of St. Mary's Church wall to the bottom of Market-street. FIRE AT THE HAVERFORDWEST RAILWAY STATION.—About half-past three o'clock Tuesday morning, Mr. Batty, the guard of the luggage train, discovered the lamp room on fire. He immediately called up the officials, and gave a general alarm. A good supply of water being at hand, the fire was got under before any material damage was done, but a portion of the flooring was burnt, several lamps broken, and a quantity of cotton consumed. The cotton, which was damp spontaneously ignited, and caused the fire. < During the next year there are to be built at Pembroke Dock Yard, in addition to those already in hand. I ship of 120 guns, 1 of 90 guns, 1 of 50 guns, 2 of 30 guns, 3 of 16 guns, and 2 of 8 guns, all to be propelled by steam. YEOMANRY CAVALIty.-The Haverfordwest troop of the Castlemartin Yeomanry Cavalry, on assembling for exercise i this week, unanimously volunteered for duty in any part of the kingdom where her Majesty may require their services. This example, it is expected, will be as warmly iouowea oy the two Pembroke troops at their next parade day. Another troop could be easily raised. This is the only Yeomanry force in the kingdom that ever had to face an invading foe. In 1797, when under the command of the late Lord Cawdor, they Were mainly instrumental m causing the surrender of a body of French who landed at rishguard, in this county. RAILWAY GOODS TRAFFIC To HAVERFORDWEST. Some time since we stated that the goods traffic to Haverfordwest Was so small as to render doubtful the continuance of the goods train daily, further than Carmarthen. We are now glad to announce that a considerable improvement has taken plaec and that the train will be continued. HAVERFORDWEST.—A Cattle fair was held at Haverford- west on Wednesday last. The supply of horned animals was somewhat below an average, but in norses and sheep there was a tolerable show, the former, however, were not remark- able in point of quality. There was a good attendance of deal- ers and no difficulty in effecting sales at remarkably good prices. The sellers for once appeared to be satisfied with the prices realized. ST. DAVID'S.—STRANGE AND NOVEL CONIBAT,- Lately a servant girl, on the farm of Sickly land, near Irevine Mill, observed, at early dawn, a large fox prowling about the out- houses. She immediately called up her young master, who sallied forth instanter with gun in hand to destroy the invader. On coming out of the honse, he observed Master Reynard slowly crossing a meadow, in the direction of the cottage of a tenant distant about two hundred yards from the farm-house. The young man immediately followed, but, as he approached the cottage, he heard a fierce growling and barking, amidst Nvhich the high tenor notes of a pig were most distinctly audi- ble. Before he reached the cottage, however, he observed the female occupier come out, alarmed by the hideous uproar, and on approaching the spot, he perceived a furious conflict raging between Reynard and a pig. Whether the fox was the first aggressor or not it is impossible to SP. b--1"b-- swine at length seized him by the throat, and j .j. iui .ni till obuilife was extinct. A SPECIAL PETTY SESSIONS for the hundred of Kemes was held at the Llwyngwair Arms, Newport, on the 7th inst., before J. T. W. Jones, G. Griffiths, Esqrs., and the Rev. Lloyd Howells, Clerk, when the overseers of the poor ,)f the different parishes were appointed for the ensuing year, the accounts of the outgoing surveyors of highways verified and passed, and parish constables appointed and sworn.

Distress warrants were ordered to be issued. The overseers of the poor of Monachlogddu summoned Thomas Thomas and David Davies for the main- tenance of Anne Davies and her four children. Judgment postponed on points of law raised by Mr. A. J. Evans, on behalf of defendant, David Davies. The overseers of the poor of Llanfrynach charged Maria Thomas with non-pay- ment of poor rate.

FISHGUARD POLICE COURT.—On Tuesday last, before Moses Griffiths, Esq., Martha Jenkins, was charged by Superintendent Vaughan, with stealing a quantity of culm the property of C. II. Barham, Esq., of Trecoon. It appeared that Vaughan was on duty about one o'clock oa Saturday morning last near the Slade, when he observed two women making their course towards a large pile of culm near the lime kilns, I when he concealed himself until the prisoner had filled her bag with culm; on the other woman he-found no culm. Com- mitted for trial at the next quarter sessions.
HAVERFORDWEST QUARTER SESSIONS. I The Easter Quarter Sessions were held at the Shirehall on Friday last, before the Rev.

The Treasurer's Account for the past quarter was audited, when a balance of X133 2s. was found to be in his hands to be carried to his debit in his next account. A county rate of a penny in the pound was ordered to be levied on all rateable and extra-parochial property in the town. Messrs. Richard Waters and John Phillips, two of the in- habitants of the extra-parochial district of Portfield, were appointed to assess and levy the county rate, in respect of the land comprised in that district for the year ensuing. The Chairman read a letter from the proprietors of the Telegraph newspaper, applying for the town advertisements to be inserted in that paper in future, grounding their applica- tion upon the plea of having the largest circulation of any newspaper in the county of Pembroke. After a short discussion it was determined to postpone the consideration of the subject until the next Quarter Sessions. This concluded the business of the Sessions.
CARDIGANSHIRE. MM'- I I DEATH OF COLONEL POWELL. I In our obituary of this week we have the mournful duty to announce the lamented demise of Col. William Edward Powell, of Nanteos, Lord Lieutenant of the County of Cardigan, and for upwards of 38 years the faithful representative of that County in the House of Commons. He expired on Monday last at his residence in London, having gone there from Brighton about three weeks previous. In his long Parliamentary ca- reer he.always scrupulously adhered to his expressed prin- ciples, and the other offices which he held were as faithfully and sedulously fulfilled. He is succeeded in his estates by his son, William Thomas Rowland Powell, Colonel Commandant of the the Royal Cardiganshire Militia. LAMPETER.—On Saturday week the members of the Debat- ing Societylin connection with St. David's College, met for the last time before the Easter Vacation. The subject for dis- cussion was the Separation of Church and State. Mr. I.ati- mer Jones opened the subject affirmatively. The negative speeches were delivered by Mr. D. Lloyd Iaac and Mr. John Jones, formerly dissenting ministers. There were a great many persons present. LAMPETER.—The Calvinistic Methodists Society held their monthly meeting for this county at Bwlchllan, near this place, on Wednesday and Thursday, the 5th and 6th inst., when a great number of the ministers and deacons assembled from dif- ferent parts. At 10 o'clock the first day (Wednesday) the financial affairs of the society were entered into. At half- past one o'clock P.M., the ministers met, apart from the other officials, and deliberated at great length on a subject proposed by the chairman. At 3 o'clock, two excellent sermons were de- livered by the Revs. T. Evans, of Penllwyn, and John Jones, of Penmorfa. At half-past six o'clock in the evening, the Sunday School half-yearly meeting was held, when the Rev. Edward Jones, of Abervstwith, occupied the chair. Messrs. Jones, of Lampeter, Hughes, of Abervstwith, Edwards, of Penllwyn, Jones, of Penmorfa, &c., spoke very appositely on the subject proposed by the chairman. On the following day, at 10 o'clock, two very able and masterly discourses were de- livered by Messrs. Jones, of Lampeter, and Jones, of Aber- ystwith, to a very large and crowded congregation. The neighbourhood, churchmen and dissenters without distinction, showed great hospitality to the strangers that congregated on the occasion in entertaining them with board and lodging. SAINT MARY'S, CARDIGAN.—A special Vestry was held in the parish church, on the 6th instant, for the purpose of electing an assistant overseer in room of the late Mr. John Philipps, when Mr. Stephen Williams, formerly currier, in this town, was elected to the office. CARDIGAN AND CARMARTHEN RAILWAY.—This bill will go into committee on the 4tli proximo, Mr. Adair, member for Ipswich, chairman. There is not the least fear the bill will be passed with the utmost facility the forms of the house permit. BOROUGH OF CARDIGAN PETTY SESSIONS. — A special petty sessions for this borough was held on the 10th inst., before the Mayor, Thomas Davies, Esq., R. D. Jenkins, and Thomas Davies, Bryndu, Esquires. Mr. William George, governor of the Union Workhouse, preferred a complaint against Hannah James, a pauper inmate of the workhouse, for being drunk and disorderly. The offence was fully proved, and the "defendant was find 5s. and costs and in default of pay- ment to be imprisoned for seven days. It is our painful duty to record the death of Roderick Eardly Richardes, Esq., of Penglaise, near Aberystwith, after a long and protracted illness. He expired on Friday last, aged 6iJ years. For a number of years he was an active magistrate for the County. His name was connected with most of the benevolent institutions of the town, and his liberal donations to all deserving claims will canse him to be long remembered with the best recollection. ABERAYRON PETTY SESSIONS were held on Wednesday last, before Capt. Saunders, Tymawr, and T. II. Winwood, Esq., Tyglyn Ayron. Evan Joshua, Llanddewi-aberarth, currier, was summoned for riding in his cart. Case dismissed.— John Morgans, Llanrhystid, blacksmith, was summoned for assaulting John Jones, carpenter, of the same place. Allowed to settle out of court.—Price Lickstork, excise officer, was summoned by Ann Davies, Penrope, New Quay, for an as- sault. Case dismissed.—There were two affiliation cases, in one of which an order was made on the defendant, and the other, which had been adjourned from the last meeting, was dismissed. -A poor idiot, who was a stranger to the police, and had been found wandering about the parish of Llanddewi- aberarth, was brought before the bench, and remanded for 14 days in order that the parish authorities might have time to find out to what parish he belonged. The accounts of the surveyors of highways were examined and passed, and con- stables for the various parishes in the district were sworn in. ABERYSTWITH. APPOINTMENT OF OVERSEERS. On Thursday Mr. Robert Edwards and Mr. Richard Williams were appointed overseers of the poor for the ensuing year. ABERYSTWITH POLICE.-At the same meeting before John Miller, Esq., mayor, and John Hughes, Esq., about 50 cases were entered for nonpayment of poor rates. Some few were referred to the vestry, and in the others orders to pay forthwith were made. ABERYSTWITH PETTY SESSIONS.—On Tuesday before John Miller, Esq., mayor, John Hughes, and David Edwards, Esquires., Mr. William Rice complained against several parties for keeping their premises :in a filthy state. The nuisances were ordered to be removed, and the premises cleansed within two days, or the inspector to do it at the expence of the parties. David Parry, miller, was fined 2s. 6d. and costs for allowing his cart to remain in Little Dark Gate Street on Monday last longer than requisite. ABERYSTWITH.—James Morice, Esq., of Llanbadam, who left this town some time since for Constantinople, with the intention of joining the Turkish army, has arrived at that place, and has received a commission as Captain of Artillery. ABERYSTWITH.—A special meeting of the Commissioners under the Improvement Act, was held at the Town Hall, on Tuesday last, present—John Miller, Esq., Mayor, Chairman, Messrs. C. Hackney, P. Williams, J. Jones, D. Jones, E. W. Jones, J. Jones, G. Careswell, Joel Evans, J. Jenkins, R. Williams. W. Jenkins, and T. Cleaton. The meeting as mentioned in our last was convened for the purpose of con- sidering the necessity and practicability of removing the Slaughter Houses and doing away with other nuisances, but we regret to report that nothing effectual was resolved upon. Mr. C. Hackney called some of the Commissioners to account for what he termed double dealing; persons complaining loudly out of doors of the nuisances, but when they met for the purpose of ordering their removal they did not speak upon the subject. The Slaughter Houses were permitted to remain in various parts of the town, and the neighbourhood was to be again annoyed with the unhealthy stench from them in the heat of summer; filth was to be allowed to accumulate on the usualj scale, and consequently engenders virulent diseases, because the commissioners did not perform their duty by or- dering them to be removed. He could not possibly under- stand such conduct. The only conclusion which was arrived at was that the Surveyor should make frequent visits to the Slaughter Houses to see that they were properly cleansed, this order had been regularly entered upon the books for the last three years at least, yet the nuisances still remained in as bad a state as ever. They had been the subject of loud com- plaints not only by the inhabitants, but also by the visitors. It was ordered that on Mondays the carts vending potatoes be removed from Church-strcet, to Newfoundland-street, by the permission of the mayor, that the turncock be directed to change the water pipes in Princess-street, for others in store which have been cleansed, and that he also place stop cocks in Portland-street, Portland Lane. Terrace R??,i N-f'k ABERYSTWITH.—A clerical meeting was held on Thursday. In the morning the Rev. Evan Evans, of Llangeitho, read the service, and sermons were delivered by the Rev. John Hughes, Tregaron, and Rev. David Griffiths, Trevilan. In the afternoon the Rev. Evan Morgan, Berth, said prayers, and the Rev. E. Evans, Llangeitho, preached. There was a large attendance on each occasion, and the discoures delivered were impressive.
I BRECONSHIRE. I BRECON TOWN IIALL. A Special Council Meeting was held on Monday present, Mordecai Jones, Esq., mayor, Walter Maybery, J. P. do Win- ton, David Thomas, Esqrs., and Messrs. Fryer and William Thomas. The Town Clerk, at the request of the Mayor, stated that the meeting had been called for the purpose of taking into consideration, and determining upon, the prayer of a letter re- ceived from Colonel Pearce, of Ffrwdgrech, on the llth ult., stating that he was desirous of walling up the ground on the margin of the river Usk, opposite his stafeles and property, in the occupation of Mr. Turner, the Swan Hotel, the former wall having been swept away by the floods of last sum- mer and being desirous to extend the wall up to the edge of the river, which would enclose a slip of land between the site of the old wall and the edge of the river, which belonged to the Corporation, he proposed to pay the Corporation an annual acknowledgment for the land, so that he and his tenants might thereafter occupy it without interruption. After some little discussion, Mr. Alderman Maybery said, that he had many years ago purchased a piece of land from the Corporation on the eastern side of the Captain's Walk, and he begged to propose that Col. Pearce should pay the same price in proportion to the extent of the land he required as he had done, and that the surveyor, Mr. Kirk, be instructed to measure and value the same. Mr. J. P. de Winton thought the proposition a good one, and he had, therefore, much pleasure in seconding the mo- tion. The motion meeting the approbation of the members pre- sent, was carried nem. con. Mr. Alderman Thomas called the attention of the Council to a most extraordinary statement which had been made at a recent council meeting with respect to some imaginary right of private fishery which belonged to the Corporation. He denied that any such right existed from Brynich to the top of Newton Pool, as had been alleged, and that if such no- tions were really entertained, he should deem it his duty, as the agent of Sir Charles Morgan, to warn persons off who were found fishing there. The meeting then resolved itself into A BOARD OF HEALTH. I Mr. de Winton enquired of the Surveyor if any, and what, improvements had lately been made in the town, through the instrumentality of the Board of Health. The Mayor stated that many improvements had lately been made, and produced bills for the work done. Mr. Fryer enquired whether any reduction in the expendi- ture had been effected. The Surveyor replied that they had reduced the number of labourers being enabled to do with one man less. Some bills were then ordered to be paid. The Surveyor produced a bill for J61 3s. for repairs done to the Forge Bridge, and stated that a short time ago Jno. Powell, Esq., the High Sheriff, ordered him to cause the bridge to be repaired, and the bill to be sent to the Council, which, if they refnsed to pay, he would obtain payment by a subscrip- tion. The Mayor proposed, and Mr. Thomas seconded, that as there was every probability of the amount being subscribed, the question should stand over until the next quarterly meeting. Mr. Fryer having inquired if the town manure had been all sold, Mr. Thomas said that the present was the best time to dis- pose of it advantageously. p The Surveyor replied that Mrs. Bright had taken 70 tons, and he thought that Colonel Pearce would take the re- mainder. The Mayor said that as Mrs: Bright had purchased one part of it, it was only fair that she should have the opportunity of taking the remainder. Mr. Kirk stated that he would speak to Mrs. Bright on the subject, and in the event of her refusal he would mention it to Mr. Williams, wine merchant, who, he thought, would pur- chase it. The state of the pavement near Mr. Rees Davies's house, Llanfaes, was complained of by a letter from him, stating that if the Board would repair it, he would cover the gutter at his own expense. Mr. Kirk was ordered to inspect the place, and make a re- port at the next meeting. The Surveyor made a complaint against Mr. Williams, the contractor for conveying the manure from the streets, in not providing two competent horses for the work. The agreement having been read, the Mayor ordered the Clerk to communicate with Mr. Williams. The Surveyor stated that a grating near the New Grey- hound, in Llanfaes, and another near the Sun, in Wheat- street, were nuisances, and produced the plans of several gratings sent him, from which the Board selected two, and gave orders for them to be supplied forthwith. Mr. Fryer proposed, and Mr. Tnomas seconded, that in future tenders for paving and pitching the town be adver- tized for. The Board then adjourned.
THE LATE REV. W. WILLIAMS, RECTOR OF LLYSWEN.—The body of this unfortunate gentleman, who was drowned on the 14th ult. in the river Wye, and reported in the Welshman at the time, was found floating in the river on Friday last, about half a mile from the spot where the accident occurred. An inquest was held before James Williams, Esq., coroner, and a verdict in accordance with the evidence given. The body was interred on the following day. The melancholy event cast a gloom on the whole neighbourhood. BRECON PETTY SESSIONS, MONDAY, APRIL IO.-Before Mordecai Jones, Esq., mayor. Elinor Lewis was charged with being drunk and disorderly.

Cecilia Drake was charged with being drunk and disardecly^ and-was fined 5s. and expences. BRECON COUNTY COURT.-This court was held at the Shire Hall on Tuesday last, before Thomas Falconer, Esq., the judge. There were several plaints entered for trial. Daniel Jones, versus, Thomas Davies. This was a summons after judgment for payment of L8 16. The plaintiff is a farmer re- siding at Gwenddur, in this county, and the defendant lives in Llanfaes, in this town. The defendant was examined at considerable length by the plaintiff as to his ability to pay the debt. His honour under the circumstances adduced, should commit defendant for eighteen days, but the warrant should remain in the office for a month to enable the defendant to pay the debt and costs by instalments of 6s. per month, as arranged. Ratcliffe against Evans. This was also a sum- mons after judgment against the defendant, an old woman. Mr. S. B.

His honour adjourned the case for a month. Watkins and Hughes against David Davies and another. This was also a summons after judgment. Defendant was ordered to be committed for eighteen days. John Price against David Bennett. This was another summons after judgment against the defendant, who is a miller. Committed for eighteen days. Ann James against Stephen Rees, (summons after judgment,) who is a schoolmaster in this town, for non-payment of £11 5s. The defendant stated that he was exceedingly poor and not in a position to pay even the smallest instalment at the present time. That his school had dwindled away in consequence of the manner which he had been harassed by his creditors. Sum- mons adjourned for three months. Elizabeth Rowland against John Davies. This was an action in trover to recover a feather bed from the defendant, who had been married to plaintiffs sister, who had since died. Plaintifl swore positively that the bed was her property, and that she had lent it her late sister on her marriage. Verdict for defendant. Mr. S. B. Evans appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. William Games for defendant. Peter Burns against James Roberts. This was an action in trover, and occupied the court a considerable time. Much conflicting evidence was given, and ultimately a verdict for the defendant was given. __n"I'o.
GLAMORGANSHIRE. ..m- I "Ill-?Ill'.11,- I NEATH PETTY SESSIONS. I These sessions were held on Friday last, before Admiral Warde, H. E. Evans, G. Llewellyn, and N. V. E. Vaughan, Esqrs. Considerable time was occupied in appointing overseers for the various parishes, and divisions of parishes in the dis- trict. The Surveyors of Highways passed their accounts. The landlord of the Plymouth Arms, Aberavon, was charged with having kept open his public house for the sale of beer at at hours prohibited bv law. P.C. Richards said that on the night of March 25th, he went into the Plymouth Arms, kept by the defendant, at half-past eleven, and found 20 men in the house with jugs of beer be- fore them. Defendant's wife said, that the clock being out of order, she did not know the precise time, and her husband had not come home from the works. Mr. Sergeant Peake said the house bore a very good cha- racter, and that this was the first offence. The case was dismissed on payment of expences, about 7s. Rees Williams, keeper of the Glanwern House, Aberavon, was charged with having on Sunday, March 26th, kept open his house for the sale of beer, at 20 minutes past twelve o'clock at night. P.C. Richards said, that at that hour he vi- sited the house, in which there were upwards of 50 persons. The same defendant was charged, on a separate summons, with allowing persons to be inebriated on the premises, at the time in question. Fined 10s. and 9s. 9d. costs in each case- the whole amounting to XI 19s. 6d. John Lewis, keeper of a common lodging-house, at Aber- avon, was charged on the information of P.C. Richards, in- spector of lodging houses, with permitting a larger number of persons to remain in the house on the night of March 24th, than allowed by his license. The officer stated that, since the summons had been served, the defendant had sold his goods and left the neighbourhood, and the house was let to another party. William Jones, ot J. antrhydyten, was charged with having committed violent assaults. Jennet Miles said she was the wife of John Miles. On the day in question, two boys came to her house stating that William Jones had followed them from Cwmavon, and had struck and beaten them. Her husband remonstrated with him, when the defendant knocked him down, and kicked him him repeatedly in the most brutal manner, so much so, that he fractured her husband's arm, as well as his ribs, and he had been too ill to appear against the defendant, She placed herself between the defendant and her husband, when the defendant kicked her violently. John Miles, corroborated the evidence. He simply told de- fendant that he ought to be ashamed of himself to molest boys in that manner. The defendant said oh, you intend taking their part do you?" and knocked him down and kicked him most brutally. He was assisted by two or three other persons. His right arm and two of his ribs were fractured, and he had been under the care of a surgeon since. The defendant like- wise dealt him a severe kick on the left arm. He was almost insensible when his wife interposed. The defendant on being called upon for his defence, made a long statement to the effect that he was returning from the Ivorite's club and on reaching his house several of the com- plainant's witnesses commenced a disturbance before his house, and that he remonstrated with them, but they would not leave, and he struck one of them. Miles then came forward and commenced assaulting him. He fell on his back purposely and commenced kicking upwards. The injuries sustained by the complainant must have been caused by his own friends. The defendant called his father as a. witness, and his evidence made it appear that all the blame rested with John Miles and his wife. There appeared to be some little difference of opinion in the minds of the bench on the point, whether the defendant or some other person in the quarrel had broken the complainant's ribs. After some deliberation, the bench con- victed the defendant in the penalty of X,3 3s. 6d., including costs, or one month's imprisonment. Abraham Treharne, Ship and Castle, Britonferry, whose wife appeared to the summons, was charged by P.C. Thomas Jones, with refusing to admit him to his house when re- qu:a._5}.°!l the night of March 25th. Tl.? ) —J — ￼ —- A large number of compositions has been sent to the secre- tary of the Bridgend Eisteddfod. From all appearances, a happy and pleasant day may be expected.

KINGSTON ASSIZES, APRIL 4TH, 18-54. (Before Baron Alderson and a Special Jury.) Gibson v. Arrowsmith. This was an action brought by the plaintiff:for the recovery of the payment of two acceptances of X500 each, being the amount of the purchase money of a thirty-second share in the Caesarah, or Great Welsh Silver Lead Mines, ;near Llanga- dock, in this County. The case was tried on the -0th No- vember last, in the Court of Exchange, before Baron Martin, when the t jury returned their verdict on the first count in favour of the plaintiff, and on the two others?for defendant, which was virtually a verdict for defendant. The plaintiff moved for a new trial which was granted. The defendant had purchased the share in the mine, on the representation of the plaintiff, who was purser for the concern. Soon after the de- fendant had given his acceptances, he found, as alleged, that what had been told him, as regarded the^intrinsic'value of the mine, was altogether a fraudulent representation. After a lengthened trial the Jury found a Verdict for defendant. LLANDYSSIL LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTION.— On Thursday evening the 6th inst., the Rev. Dr. Lloyd, Carmarthen, delivered an instructive lecture on Astronomy, illustrated by an excellent Phantasmagoria Lantern, at the national schoolroom. The attendance was so numerous that numbers were unable to obtain admittance. The bustle at the door having subsided; .on the motion of Mr. Peter Joseph, seconded by Mr. Thomas, surgeon, the Rev. Evan Morgan, Vicar, was unanimously voted to the chair. The Rev. lecturer then proceeded to elucidate by means of a great variety of diagrams, the solar system, showing the relative magnitudes, periodical revolutions, distances, and order of the planets—the annual and diurnal motions of the earth, there- by causing the vicissitudes of the seasons, and producing alternately day and night, the moon as seen through the talescope of Lord Ross, its distance from the earth and its changes, the action of the sun, and moon upon the tides, together with various other celestial orbs. The lecture throughout was replete with much interesting information, and as the science was considerably simplified by means of the figures as well as the style of the language in which it was given, it could not but prove instructive to fall present. The audience included the most respectable families in the neighbourhood. The Rev. Mr. Jones, (Idrysyn), moved a vote of thanks to Dr. Lloyd, for his able lecture. The chair- man then rose, and in seconding the motion, observed that much praise was due to Dr. Lloyd, for having raised him- self so highly in the estimation of the public, and also for his great attainments in Astronomical science as well as in other departments of learning. He (the chairman) further begged to thank him on behalf of the members as well as himself, for his readiness and great kindness in enhancing the interest of the society, which is. as yet in its infancy, (loud applause). This terminated the proceedings, and the com- pany separated highly satisfied. The proceeds arising from the lecture ,were appropriated to the benefit of the institution.
