Parliament will be dissolved on the 25th of the present month, so that about the end of May or the early part of J uue the now House of Commons will assemble for the transaction of business. The dissolution imposes upon the country a grave and important duty, as in the choice of re- presentatives the electors do not merely express an opinion on the question of confidence in ministers, but they indicate the policy which should be pursued in relation to other states, and the progress which the nation has made since the last general election. There are circumstances which induce the belief that the franchise will be exercised more honestly and with greater discrimination than at any former period and should this prove true it will constitute irrefutable evi- dence of a national advancement, and the most powerful argument which can be urged for an extension of those pri- vileges which can be entrusted with safety only to people who are instructed and competent to form an opinion on political subjects We would not be understood to suggest any barrier to reform. Great improvements in our political system aro doubtless required, but they cannot be made until the country clearly and intelligibly demand the rights which they arc prepared to receive, and it is at a period like the one upon which we aro now entering that the public voice is most effectually heard. And, if we read public opinion aright, the approaching election will confirm the policy of those statesmen who have separated themselves from party for the purpose of independent action and in doing so the constituents press onward true reform more rapidly than the adherents of extreme views. Men every- where shake themselves loose from prejudice, musty notions, and contracted sympathies, and venture to think for them- selves. This spirit of free and independent inquiry must also pervade the House of Commons, and the recognition of it in Lord Palmerston's Administration has proved one of its t principal safeguards. Those who are hostile to the Govern- ment ignore its independence. It does not suit them to re- fer to it, as they have narrower purposes to gain than could be achieved by men not tied down to fac- tion. Ministers opposed several measures of reform, and the extreme Liberal party condemn them as obstructives, without taking the trouble to inquire into the weighty reasons which stood in the way and would have effectually damaged the interests they espouse. How frequently has the Premier repeated that the people of England govern themselves. He nor no other Minister could for any length of time resist the will of the country, and when the time arrives for a new reform bill, that is when the people are prepared for it, the Legislature will be com- pelled to yield. It has always been so, but the conscious- ness that such is the case should not deter from promoting the spirit of reform, while it teaches the sound lesson that the elevation of the people is the only way to a good and popular political system. The old adage that "extremes meet" has been fulfilled to the letter, for the extreme Conservative and Liberal parties arc the principal opponents of Lord Palmerston's Ministry. In Parliament and throughout the country this is the case, but the great body of electors decry the union of these parties for factious purposes. The coun- try has spoken its sentiments boldly, and with the energy of deep conviction. We had anticipated general concur- rence, and our expectations have been more than realised, for men of all parties condemn the coalition, and uphold by their united voice an independent Ministry. At the hustings honourable members will learn, so far as it is possible, the mind of the nation, and if we may take the movements already made as the shadow of coming events, the Premier will be more firmly sustained in his home and foreign policy. We have elsewhere given particulars of electioneering arrangements and the views of the most influential newspapers, and they support the opinion we have expressed. But being naturally more concerned with the affairs of our own sphere, we must refer to them more particularly in this place, although we arc not in a position at present to do more than direct attention to what has been already done, as further movements, cal- culated to affect the final decision of electors, is not only possible but in some places probable. Mr. David Morris will unquestionably bo returned for this Borough, his political conduct having afforded the electors every sa- satisfaction. Opposition has been talked of, but it would be perfectly useless, as Mr. Morris is secure of his seat. Mr. Saunders Davies and Mr. Jones are sure to be elected without any opposition. Their constituents will be glad to find in Mr. Jones's address these words, which have no doubt been deliberately written with the intention of acting up to them. "I shall," says the hon. Member, if re-elected, be prepared to give my independent, but not indiscrimate, support to any Government which shall bring forward measures that may appear to me likely to promote the common welfare." Mr. Kinderley is named as the opponent to Sir John Owen for the borough of Pembroke; but neither of them having issued an ad- dress their political views and purposes are unknown. Viscount Emlyn, whose independent votes are warmly approved of, is secure of the county of Pembroke. In Haverfordwest, the contest between Mr. Philipps and Mr. Rees will be severe. They have both canvassed the con- stituency, but no addresses have been published. For the Cardiganshire Boroughs, Mr. Lloyd Davies L opposed by Captain Pryse, and it is asserted by the Liberal in- terest that their candidate is certain to be returned. He is supported by Mr. Lloyd, of Bronwydd, who declares him- self in favour of an honourable peace, retrenchment, and progressive reform. Captain Pryse is an untried man, but the prestige of the Gogerddan house and the prin- ciples they havo uniformly supported, will undoubtedly have great weight with many of the electors while Mr LloTd Davies has his parliamentary conduct to fall back upon, and to which he confidently alludes in his pub- lished address to the electors,

These sessions were held on Saturday last, in the Town-hall, before Dr. Law- rence, Capt. Davies, Grismond Philipps, Esq., and D. J. B. Edwardes, Esq. Application was granted for a warrant of ejectment against John Williams, blacksmith, Cappel Davis, Llanarf.hney.—David Williams, Cyffredin, Kidwelly, was convicted in the penalty of 5s. and cost for drunkenness. The charge of stealing a quantity of hay preferred by Daniel Waters against John Morris was dismissed.— William Charles Griffiths, Llangendeirne, was charged with assaulting P.C. Meyler, who stated that about half- past 1 o'clock on the 2nd inst., defendant went to his house at Pontanton, and solicited alms of his wife and permission having been given him he lighted his pipe at the fire. On being told that there were too many of his sort going about the country, some words passed between them and the officer, who was in uniform threatened to take him into custody. He then committed the assault by striking the constable, and using great resistance to being detained. Defendant, who had only just been liberated from gaol was again committed for one month to the House of Cor- rection.-Davicl Daniel, Waungranod, Llanogwad, was fined 5s. and cost, for riding on his cart on the highway.

CARMARTHEN POLICE COUP.T.-At the Town Hall, on Friday last, before the Mayor and E. H. Stacey, Esq. The charge of riding on his cart preferred against Benjamin Thomas was adjourned. A Borough rate of one shilling in the pound was seen and allowed. The license of the Hose and Crown, public-house, was transferred from James Dob- son to Thomas Evans. On Tuesday, before E. H Stacey, Esq. Ann Awbrey was committed to prison for two months, for being drunk and creating a disturbance in Water-street. The case was proved by P.C. D. Williams. John Donaghuo and Mary Sullivan were charged with drunkenness. From the evidence it appears that P.C. Williams persuaded defen- dants, who were very drunk, to go home at 12 o'clock, when they were making a disturbance in Lammas-street, however soon afterwards he was obliged to interfere, as they were fighting with a rag dealer from St. Clears. W hen he took them into custody Donaghue escaped, but was recaptured by him. The bench reprimanded and discharged the prisoners. CHARGE OF STEALING SHAWLS. — On Saturday last, before Capt. David Davies and D. J. B. Edwardes, Esq. JoFeph Paget was brought np under remand, and charged with having stolen two scurf shawls and eight yards and a half of cotton print, on the 24th of January last. Ann Howells, Blue Boar Inn, St. Clears, proved that the shawls & print produced wero worth £ 3, and that they were safe at the Blue Boar on the 24th of January. They were missed on the following Tuesday, and the prisoner who was in the house on the 24th was suspected of the theft. P.C. Edward Davies stated that on tho 28th of February he found the shawls and print in the prisoner's house at Rosemarkct, Pembrokeshire. The shawls were in a box and the print was worn by his wife. He apprehended the prisoner at Ncyland. On being told the charge he said, There's nothing to be done and I must get over it so well as I can On the following Mouday he said he would give Y,5 to make it up. The prisoner; who pleaded guilty, was sentenced to be imprisoned for two months. ORDINATION,—The Lord Bishop of St. David's held a General Ordination on Sunday last, at the parish church of Abergwili, when seven Deacons and one Priest were or- dained. His Lordship preached a powerful sermon from Epliesians iii., 8-11 [Tiito me, whom less than the least of all saints is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ." Nothing could be more touching and impressive than the manner in which he exhorted the younr; Ministers to give heed to their ministry, and to the due and diligent discharge of the im- portant duties that would devolve on them as ambassadors for Christ. The congregation, which was numerous and respectable, was deeply interested in the impressive cere- mony, and appeared to be much struck with the earnest manner and eloquence of the Bishop whilst he ably handled the subject which he had selected for his text. The vicar of the parish said prayers, the Rev. W. B. Thomas, the Bishop's Chaplain, read the Epistle, and one of the candidates read the Gospel. The candidates were presented to tho Bishop by the Chaplain, and the oathB were administered by John Thirlwall, Esq., his Lordship's secretary. The Rev. D. A. Williams, the vicar, and the Rev. W. lieed assisted in the imposition of hands when the priest was ordained. All the candidates resided at the Bishop's Palace during the exa- mination week, and left for their respective parishes on Monday. The following is a list of the names and titles of the candidates Deacons Jonathan William Marsden, of Saint David's College, Lampeter, to the Assistant Curacy of Glascomb, in the county of Radnor; Titus Lewis, of St. David's College, Lampeter, to the Assistant Curacy of Llan- elly, in the county of Brecknock; John] Davies, of St. eDllayv, id's College, Lampeter, to the Assistant Curacy of Llan- fair-y-bryn, in the county of Carmarthen John House- man, B,A., of Exeter College, Oxford, to the Assistant Cu- racy of Clyro, in the county of Radnor; Henry Drought Sheppard, M.A., of Trinity College, Dublin, to the Assistant Curacy of Swansea David Jenkins, of St. David's Col- lege, Lampeter, to the Curacy of St. John's Chapel, in the parish of Llanelly, in the county of Carmarthen; Latimer Maurice Jones, of St. David's College, Lampeter. Pi-iost Edward Frederick Johnson, of St. John's College, Cam- bridge. THE AMALGAMATED GRAMMAR SCHOOLS.—A meeting of the trustees was held in the Council Camber, on Mouday last, when there were pi-esciit-the Mayor, Mr. E. H. Stacey, Mr. W. Morris, Mr. George Davies, Mr. E. B. Jones, and Mr. Lewis Morris. It was agreed that Mrs. Williams, the occupier of the house adjoining the offices of Mr. Thomas, should have a lease granted for 21 years to com- mence on the 24tli of June at the rent of £ 28 per annum, and that she keep the premises in repair and insured. If she declined this agreement the clerk was directed to issue notice to quit. A communication was directed to be sent to the Attorney General in reference to the proposal to pay off the balance of costs in 30 yearly instalments. It was also ordered that E500 the purchase money of Queen Elizabeth's School premises be invested in Exchequer Bills, and that £ 300 be offered to Mr. Dyke, Burserof Jesus College, for the reversion of Sir Thomas Powell's School premises. Mr. Ribbans was requested to reply to the offer respecting the second mastership, which had been made to him. ST. CLEARS PETTY SESSIONS.—These sessions were held on Friday last, at the Swan Inn, St. Clears, before T. Powell, Esq., and R. P. Beynon, Esq. Thomas Howells, Laugharne, was charged with riding on his cart. The Rev. C. J. Bowen stated that on the 4th inst., on leaving Laugharne Church, he saw defendant driving his cart through the street at a furious rate, and several persons had some difficulty in getting out of the way to prevent ac- cidcnt. The cart was drawn by three horses. Defendant was fined 20s. and costs.— John Garratt, Great House, Pendine, was charged with assaulting John Thomas, Napps, Pendine, who stated that on the 4th inst. he came to him in his field and complained that the sheep were troublesome to him. He admitted that such was unfortunately the case, and defendant asked him what he had been saying about him, and, without waiting for an answer, ran at him and bit him tumbling, and trampled upon his prostrate form." He had called defendant a blackguard because of his being prevented by him from ploughing. Defendant was fined 5s. and costs.-Mary Jones was charged with assaulting John Saer and his wife. The simple facts of this case appear to be these :—Defendant owns a wall at Laques, Laugharne, which is offensive to complainant, and on the 16th ult. they proceeded to remove it, with the intention of trying tho right of defendant to retain the well. In the course of removal the parties quarrelled and the assault complained of was committed. Several witnesses were examined, which tended to complicate the facts. Defendant was fined 10s. for assaulting Elizabeth Saer, the Bench declining to ad- judicate in the other part of the case as right of property was concerned.— Mary Phillips against Mary Jones, and Mary Jones against John Saer and Elizabeth Ann Saer. lheso cases, which arose from the preceeding one, were dismissed. Mr. William Oweu Edwards, son of Richard Price Edwards, Esq., surgeon, of Cwmdu, Talley, who entered St. David s College in last October, has obtained a prize of ito and a scholarship of the yearly value of X24. LLANGADOCK PETTY SESSIONS were held at the Red lJÍon Inn on the 9th inst., before Lewis Lewis, Esq., Capt. M. P. r i and the Rev. Thomas Davies, clerk. Mr. John Lewis, of ^NT antygwynne, charged Martha Davies and Lewis Davies, of V auncrynfe, with having on the night of the oth i ebruaiy last stolen seven cart wheel spokes, his property. The Bench adjudicated under the Criminal Justice Act, 18 and 19 Vie., and the offence being fully proved, committed the prisoners for two months to the House of Correction. P. C. David Howell charged Daniel Williams with leaving his waggon on the side of the turnpike-ioad. Fined 2s 6d. and costs. Ed- ward Jones charged Walter Evans, Edward Jenkins, Daniel Davies, Morgan Davies, Rebecca James, Aim Lewis, and Eliza Morgan, with having riotously and tumultuously assembled to disturb the peace. The complaint was dis- missed. Mr. Recs James, ofLlwynjaek, preferred a com- missed. Mr. RWccil?ll,i. am Mered.th for taking salmon out of season. Defendant was find L2 with costs. David Davies, an apprentice, summoned his master, William Davies, of the Pontabor factorv, for having assaulted him. Convicted in the penalty of 2s. 6d., and payment of costs. P.C. David Howells charged James Lewis with being drunk on the 22nd February last. Fined 5s. and costs. P.C. David Howells also charged Lewis Lewis with being drunk on the same day. Fined 5s. and costs. Anu Evans, servant in hus- bandry, charged her master, William Jones, with ill-treat- ment whilst in his employ. The complaint was settled cut of court with consent.
I LLANELLY PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held on Wednesday last, before J. H. Rees, Esq., and R. G. Thomas, jun., Esq. T Ann Howells wife of John Honells, Marquis of Granbv, New Dock, was charged with assaulting Mary New Dock, on the 4th inst. Robert Fisher and Jane Hopkins,, were witnesses for the defence, from whoso evidence it ap- peared that the complainant had committed the first assault. The case was consequently dismissed and the complain- ant ordered to pay costs. William Williams, a watchman &c., in the employ of the Llangennech Coal Company, and Edmond Lynch, an Irish- man, were brought up charged with stealing a quantity of iron chain, and the second with purchasing the same without a license as a marine store dealer. Mr. B. Jones, for the defence, stated that the Company had a quantity of iron chain (as indeed they must have) lying about their yards and trams, and frequently extensive thefts were committed, and the Company were anxious to put a stop to such depredations. William Williams was employed by the Company to hitch the waggons at the foot of St. David's incline, and he also had to look after the Company's property there and to prevent it being stolen. The complaint against him was that he had been placed in an office of considerable trust and had committed a theft. Mr. Jones, after giving an outline of the circumstance called Robert Sheppard, who said he was employed by several Companies to watch the whole line. It was his duty to go over the line to see that nothing was stolen. He went for that purpose on Monday last and arrived at the foot of the St. David's incline where they hitch the waggons. He knew that William Williams was employed there as a hitcher, &c. He saw a strange man there looking about who proved to be Lynch. He then went on to the little lodge for the man to go on. He saw some pieces of chain there belonging to the waggons. The defendant was stand- ing near. He also saw a bag on the ground. Seeing this it excited his suspicion. He then went as if going to Gelly, but returned and the bag and iron were gone. He next walked towards Dafen and found Lynch carrying a bag, which he believed was the same he saw at the lodge He asked him if he had some pieces of chain, and Lynch said yes, and that he had bought them from the man at the foot of the incline. He took him to Mr. Seymour, and he asked Williams if he sold the chain and he said yes, and that he picked it up from a drain in the yard. lie took the chain and weighed it, and it was locked up. The weight was 291bs. Mr. Banks, store keeper, and Mr. Thomas, smith, gave evidence to further identify the property. Some doubt how- ever remained, which was dispelled by the defendant him- self after receiving the usual caution and preferring to be tried by their worships, stating that he did not steal it but picked it up in a drain on the property of the Company. The bench informed him that that was stealing and he could have no right to sell his employers property without their leave. Mr. Seymour, the Agent, said defendant had been in their emply 22 years. The work he had to do was trifling, but he was put there chiefly to watch the coal and take care of the property. He had always conducted himself well to Monday last, but he was now clisciiai-gect. Mr. Morgans attended on behalf of the defendant, and said he had been a tenant of his for 50 years and he alwaJs found him to be an honest man. As the Company did not wish to press the charge and he had borne a good character for so many years and being an old man, the magistrates* told him they would not send him gool as they had the power to do, but would order him to pay the costs out of the wages due to him. Defendant wished his account to be settled before leaving the court, and did not appear to feel that he had been dealt with leniently. Edmund Lynch was discharged with a caution. John Davies charged Elizabeth Griffiths with larceny. In this case Mr. R B. Jones appeared, and stated to the bench that Mr. Parry and himself had agreed to a settlement of the case but the girl had not yet complied with the terms, but he thought she would do so. It was therefore deferred with a view to a settlement. Mr. R. Isaac, watchmaker, applied for a warrant to ap- prehend Gritfith Thomas, Llanelly, on suspicion of stealing two watches in August or September last. Thomas is out on bail on a similar charge. The articles were produced by P.S. Lewis, and the warrant was issued.
LLANELLY LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. A meeting of this Board was held on Saturday last, when the following members were present:—Mr. B. Jones (in the chair), Mr. J. K. Cook, Mr. E. Bagot, Mr. J. J. Letcher, Mr. R. B. Jones, Mr. R. Harries, and Mr. 11. T. Howell. The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed, and the vouchers then ordered for payment were examined and found correct. The balance in the Treasurer's hand was ascertained to be £ 446 lis. 3d. Mr. R. B Jones read the minutes of the Highway Com- mittee as follows At a meeting of the Highway Com- mittee, held on the 6th of March, it was reported that the Contractor had received X115 on account of his contract for repairs of roads, and that he would be entitled to X130 pro- vided the terms of his contract were fulfilled. Several small bills were recommended to be paid, amounting in all to X5 3s. The Collector's fortnightly return was laid before the committee. It appeared that he had collected special district rate, £21 17s. 3d.; and highway rate, f9 10s. 6d. The draft of the agreement with Jonah Davies for the letting of the Pig Market was read and approved." The minutes were confirmed. The minutes of the Sanitary Committee of the 6th instant were read by Mr. R. T. Howell" The notice of William Jenkins to erect a house in Marine-street, Sea Side, with plan, was considered and approved. The notice and plans by Elias Jenkins and William Cadwaller to erect houses were laid before the committee and adjourned for further consideration. The Clerk was requested to produce the plan of John Davies' house approved on the 29th November, and the section of the Dafn river." The Clerk read the following report upon the subject: Having agreed with the sanitary committee upon the form of a paper which Mr. Buckley should be requested to sign previous to the Local Board of Health complying with his application for their permission to make a dam across the river Lliedi, at Caeswan, in order to his obtaining water therefrom for the temporary use of his mill, whilst he was erecting a steam engine there, on the 26th of February last I waited upon Mr. Buckley to obtain his signature thereto, when I was surprised at his hesitating and saying that he did not ask it as a favour of the Board, and objected to sign the paper, but wished to retain it in order to show it to his solicitor, upon which I left it with him. Several days after- wards I again called upon him for the paper, when he in- formed me that he would not sign it, and would return it to mp, which he subsequently did. Having been informed that Mr. Buckley had caused the dam to be reconstructed, I went on the 2nd of March to the spot, and found there three men employed in puddling behind a plank which had been placed across the river so as to dam the water. I warned them that they were doing wrong, and told them to say so to their master; and I further told them that if what they had done was not taken away on the morrow I should hold them responsible. I believe that was done, as the dam is again taken away, but the river is much obstructed at that place by stones and stakes." The following is the document submitted to Mr. Buckley, and which he declined to sign :— In consideration of the Llanelly Local Board of "Health allowing me (so far as they lawfully can or may) permission to make a dam across the river Lliedi, at or near Caeswan, so as to obtain water therefrom for the temporary use of my brewery, whilst I am erecting a steam engine there, I hereby engage to remove the said darn and to restore the river to its natural course within one calendar month from this date. and in default of my so doing the Board shall be at liberty to remove the same, and I further agree to indemnify the Board against all costs and charges in respect thereof." Mr. Buckley, who was present, said that there were several things in the clerk's report which were not cor- rect. The clerk said that he had connued himself strictly to facts, and would pledge himself to the accuracy of all he had stated in his report. Mr. Buckley now rose to make a statement, but Mr. R. B. Jones strongly opposed his being allowed to do so, contending that anything he wished to bring before the board should be done in writing through the proper officer, and that it would be highly improper to allow Mr. Buckley, who was not a member of the Board, to make a verbal state- mcut.. u After a considerable discussion as to whether Air. Buckley should be heard, Mr. Bagot moved that Mr. Buckley should be allowed to proceed with his statement. When any ratepayer thought he had a grievance to complain of, the Board should hear him, they being the representatives of the ratepayers. Mr. R. B. Jones I am not sure that you arc a rate- payer. The Chairman said he thought Mr. Buckley might be allowed to proceed, if be would confine himself strictly to the point at issue. Mr. R. B. Jones still protested against it, but the other members concurring with the chairman, Mr. Buckley proceeded with his statement: He said that not wishing to make a formal application to the Board for the water, he had written to Mr. Howell, askisg him to obtain the acquiescence of the Board to his using the water for two or three weeks until his steam engine could be erect- ed, and he was obliged to Mr. Howell for having done so. He objected to sign the conditions sent to him by their clerk, for they asked him in case he did not remove the weir, to allow them to do so. They had pulled it down twice, and surely they did not now want his permission to do it. He had not erected the weir again, but only used a board once in two or three days for a short time to turn in some water until his steam engine was ready, and surely while many of the inhabitants were using the river to fill their lime pits, malt cisterns, and steam boilers. He was not to be denied the use of it. Being again reminded that the Board were not now discussing the question of right to the water Mr. Buckley proceeded to say that he had to complain of the clerk, who came on his premises, and finding the men put- ting up a board to turn the water he told them that if they did so again they would be punished. The men came to him, and ho told them to go back and turn on the water. Mr. Letcher observed that the clerk had stated all this in his report. The Clerk And all I can say to Mr. Buckley is that I was doing my duty. Mr. Letcher said that as a member of the sanitary com- mittee he considered them perfectly justified in requiring Mr. Buckley to sign the paper that ;bad been submitted to him. The Clerk said that after the paper had been drawn up by the committee in conjunction with himself, he bad submitted it to Mr. Nevill, the chairman of the Board, and he gave it his entire approval. Mr. Buckley repeated that he must nevertheless decline to sign it. The Chairman pointed out the clause to which he supposed Mr. Buckley, objected, but The Clerk said it was essential that those words should remain. Mr. Letcher stated that the committee had exercised every care to draw up the paper in such a way that Mr. Buckley should not have any reason to object to sign it. Mr. Howell, in reply to Mr. R. B. Jones, gave explana- tions as to his haying been induced to make the request for the use of the water on behalf of Mr. Buckley at the last meeting, and was about to read the letter addressed to him by Mr. Buckley, but The Chairman ruled that a private communication be- tween Mr. Buckley and a member of that board could not bo discussed. Mr. Buckley then proceeded to say that he wished to know what was meant by the observation of a member at the last meeting, as to missing property belonging to the board. The Chairman was of opinion that if Mr. Ruckley required any explanations of a particular member they should be asked for privately. Mr. R. B. Jones would explain the matter referred to by Mr. Buckley. The clerk some time ago reported to the board that a culvert and sluice had been erected for the benefit of the town of Llanelly, at a cost of 15s. That sluice and the apparatus connected with it was also reported by the same officer to be in the possession of Mr. Buckley. Now, before any concession was made to that gentleman he (Mr. Jones) thought it right that the missing property of the I)o ,ird should be restored. Mr. Buckley I never have been hero with my wituesses to prove that I never had the property. The Chairman said that it appeared to the board by their document that there were certain articles missing—whether of any value or not he did not know-but it was said that some portions were taken by Mr. Buckley's men and left on his premises. It was no accusation against Mr. Buckley personally. Mr. Buckley emphatically denied any knowledge of the property said to be missing, and after some further warm discussion it was resolved to carry out the previous resolu- tions of the board. The Chairman read a letter from the Rev. D. Rees, apply- ing that the British school might be excused from poor rates, prior to July last, the institution being in want of funds. The Board agreed to comply with the application. Mr. Letcher referred to the fact of the overseers of the poor having rated the town hall and market place, and upon his suggestion the clerk was requested to report at the next meeting upon the legality of such rates. Mr. R. Jones observed that the board having employed Mr. Taunton to make plans for sewerage purposes he had a right to some consideration at their hands, and should not be left as it were without any payment. Some course should be adopted for getting the plans approved and the money paid. Mr. Howell said that the only way would be to have the plans approved by the general board. The Clerk was then requested to apply to Mr. Taunton to get his sewerage plans approved by the General Board, and his compact settled. He was also requested to apply to Messrs. Lockraft and Bagot to get their plans approved by the General Board. Mr. Harris gave notice that he would move at the next meeting, "That the clerk be directed to serve all the yearly tenants of the Llanelly Local Board of Health with notice to quit on the 29th of September next, and that the land be divided into smaller lots, and let by public auction." The cheques having been signed, the business of the board then terminated. 'A'
LLANELLY.—An inquest was held at the Ship and Castle, before W. Bonville, Esq., Coroner, on Tuesday last, on the body of William Samuel, aged 14 years, who was killed at the Llwyn Colliery, on Saturday last, while engaged at his work. Deceased bad occasion to reach a spanner, when his foot slipt and he fell under the crank of the steam engine, by which he was so much injured that he died in a few hours. Verdict—Died from the injuries received at the Llwyn Colliery."—Another inquest was held at the St. David's Head, Dryn, on the body of Patrick Beaha, who was injured by a large stone falling upon him while in a sitting position, at Penllyn Colliery, on the 16th January last, at Llangennech. Deceased was taken home on a plank, from which he had not been removed till his death. ■ VerdictDied from injuries received at Penllyn Col- liery." Cuoss INN, LLANDERIH. —On the night of the 3rd instant two young men, William Samuel and Morgan Morgans, blacksmiths, were returning from Cross Inn to Boullwyn Forge, where they worked and lodged in the house of their employer. On their way home they turned to th Llanelly Railway near Diffrvn road, and entered a hut belonging to one of the blocklayers, where they slept for some time. When Samuel awoke he observed that Morgans' clothes were in flames from his head to his feet, & it was with difficulty he could awake him, when he started up and ran towards home, about half a mile distant, all on fire, and knocked at the door, where his employer rose to let him in, and an awful spectacle was presented. The poor fellow's clothes had >een completely burned off his person, so much so that then was nothing left unconsumed but the wristbands of his shir I and his shoes. He was of course dreadfully burned, and oi the following day was conveyed to his father's, at Cwmm wr, near Llandarog. Faint hopes are entertained of his re- covery. The two men had been drinking all the aftern 1m, and were intoxicated at the time of the occurrence. LLANDII.O NATIONAL SCHOOL.-On Monday evening last an exhibition of dissolving views and the magic lantern was made at the Town Hall by Robert Smith, Esq., of Glanbrydan House, in the presence of a large assembly of ladies and gentlemen, and others. The exhibitor was highly successful in bis efforts to entertain the audience, and per- formed his rather arduous duties to the gratification of every one. At the conclusion the National Anthem was sung. The admission was by ticket, and a good sum was realised, which will be devoted to the use of the school. LLANDILO POLICE.-On Monday, before the Rev. D. H. T. G. Williams and John Jones, Esq., Joseph Thomas was brought up in the custody of P.C. John Rees, charged with an aggravated assault on his wife. Remanded.—P.C. Thos. Jones charged William Brown with assaulting him in the c'},utioll of his duty. Complainant deposed that he was on auty near the Railway Tavern about half-past 11 o'clock on Saturday night last, when defendant, who was very tijgy, came out and requested him to go in with him, as a n there had struck him. Witness refused, and went towards Trallwm, followed by the defendant. He requested him to go home severai times, but he refused. Witness then took hold of his arm to lead him home, upon which defen- dant struck him twice, and ran away. Witness followed, and took him iuto custody. Fined 2a. 6d. and costs, which were paid. LLANDILO PETTY SESSIONi;On Saturday, before Wm. Peel, D. Protheroe, M.I)., and Wm. du Buisson, Esqrs. Mr. Rees Thomas, farmer, Abernant, Llansadwrn, preferred a complaint against Mr. John Morgan, surveyor of the Llan- dilo district of highways, for non-repair of a highway lead- ing from the turnpike road near Taliaris parsonage, and extending from thence to the boundary that divides the hamlet of Cwmcawllwyd from the parish of Llansadwrn, and being about 1200 hundred yards in lennth. Mr. James l?lorgati, Llandovery, appeare ?,atro ds in lennth. Mr. James Morgan, Llandovery, appeared to support the complaint, and Mr. Popkin for the defendant. The complainant hav- ing been examined, and after some discussion, Mr. Popkin intimated to the bench that the defendant, on behalf of the inhabitants of the hamlet, admitted the duty and obliga- tion of repairing that part of the highway from Taliaris parsonage to the eastern end of the footbridge over the river Dulais, and which was about 400 yards in length, but alleged that that part was in good repair. As to the rest of the highway, from the footbridge to the boundary, he denied their liability to repair it. The complainant abandoned his charge as far as it related to the first portion of the highway, and their worships ordered an indictment to be preferred at the next assizes for the non-repair of the dis- puted part.—At the termination of the last case, Charles Berry, lately a police officer at Cross Inn, Llandebie, but now station master at Ffairfach, on the Llandilo Extension Rail- way, applied to their worships for advice under the following circumstances :—The applicant stated that Captain Scott, chief constable, had refused to pay him 5s. due to him for ten weeks' boot and shoe allowance, at the time be re- signed, on the 11th December last. He had sent an appli- cation to him through Mr. Superintendent Philipps for the money. The Chief Constable's answer was that he knew of no reason why the applicant should receive the amount be applied for. The applicant applied a second time through the same channel for the Chief Constable's reasons why he should not receive the money, the reply .to which was rgain that the Chief Constable knew of no reason why the applicant should receive the money, and he saw no cause why he should sparch for reasons why he should not receive the money. The Bench told Berry that they had no power to assist him in that court. The applicant then left, apparently satisfied with the answer he had received.— David Prosser pleaded guilty to a charge preferred against him by Mr. Owen Thomas, inspector of weights and mea- sures for District No. 3, for having refused to produce his weights and balances for inspection. Fined £1 and costs.
CARDIGANSHIRE. CARDIGAN.—Mr. Evan Evans, Penralltfachnog, in the parish of Llanfairorllwyn, has a sheep, which a few days since yeaned six lambs, five of them are alive, and with the dam are doing well. ABERAYRON PETTY SESSIONS were held on Wednesday last, before Capt. Saunders, Tymawr, Capt Lewes, Llanlear, j Capt Gwynne, Monachty, C. It. Longcroft, Esq., Llanina, and J. Boultbee, Esq., Noyadd. Thomas Felix, farmer, Bwlch-ydwr, Cilcennin, was summoned for assaulting David Jones, shoemaker, Pwllglas, Cilcennin. The parties were allowed to settle out of court, defendant paying the costs. Thomas Griffiths, Pennant, Llanbadarn-trefereglws, ap- prehended on a charge of vagrancy, was discharged with a caution. TREGARON.-On Saturday last, a serious accident oc- curred to Mr. Thomas Kemp, landlord of tbo Red Lion, Pontrydfendigaid, who was proceeding to a bog with a cart drawn by two horses to bring home turf, and on turning off to the main road into a field adjoining the bog the horses took fright, probably by his alighting from the cart, when one of the wheels caught him and forced him in contact with a gate post, by which he sustained a fractured rib and right arm below the elbow, with severe bruises. Under the prompt attendance and care of R. Rowlands, Esq., Surgeon, the patient is progressing favourably. LLANILAR PETTY SESSIONS. The monthly petty ses- sions for the upper division of liar were held before Jas. Davies and L. Pugh, Esqrs., at the Falcon Inn, Llanilar. William Morgan, miner, of New-row, and Thomas Wil- liams, blacksmith, were summoned upon the information of two gamekeepers in the employ of the Right Hon. the Earl of Lisburne, for being in pursuit of game. From the evi- dence adouced, it was shown that the defendants were seen with a dog and gun, on New Year's Day last, at Llettysinod farm, the property of his lordship. William Morgan ap- peared through his wife, who did not deny the charge. Williams did not appear. They were each fined 5s. with costs, or to be committed for one month. P.C. J. James summoned Thomas Morgan, of Cae Madoc, for furious driving, Defendant admitted the offence, and was fined 2s. 6d. with costs. John Morgans, of Abermade, summoned Edward Richard, of Tyrhelig, for nou-payment of wages, amounting to X6 5s. The defendant did not appear, and proof of the service having been given, a warrant was issued JOr Ills apprehension. Thomas Morgan, of Goyfran, sum- moned David Davies and Evan Edwards, miners, for an assault. Neither:of the defendants appeared, and the officer being called upon to prove the service of the summonses, he deposed that be served David Davies on the 3rd instant, and Evan Edwards on the 5th, when the latter said they had been to settle it. The magistrates enquired from the complainant if such was the case, who answered that they had settled, but he regretted the 11 bargain." The magis- trates told him the case was dismissed, THERARON. On Friday last, about six o'clock in the evening, three tramp's visited the Cooper's Arms, public- house, near Tregaron, and called fSf half a pint of ale each, for which they paid 6.1 The landlady put the ristmej into a drawer of the dresser which stood in the kitchen, and was no doubt observed by the men. After they had drank their ale they called for one half a pint more, and while the land- lady was drawing it, she perceived some one going away from the drawer, and take away from it the sum of 2s. 7d. Upon this she became alarmed, but being too timid to charge them with the offence, she allowed them to depart, but subsequently gave information to P.C Jones, who traced two of them to a common lodging-house at Pontrhydfendi- gaed, and took them in custody to Tregaron. On arriving there, he found the third ensconced in an hay-stack, and found the man had changed a florin at the Wenallt Arms public-house, to pay for beer, which corresponded with the coin stolen from the Cooper's A mg. While he was in the police station, Thomas ltice laid information that on the previous night a pane of glass in his window bad been broken, and the house entered. Amongst the articles found upon the prisoner, who gave the name of Charles Clarke, was a pair of scissors and a half-sovereign. The scissors were identified by Rice as his property. The prisoners were taken to Lampeter, where two of them were discharged, and Ciarke remanded till Monday, when he was brought before the Very Rev. Llewellyn Lewelin, D.C.L,, and W. Jones, Esq., where the depositions were taken, and the pri- soner committed for trial at the ensuing Assizes for the county of Cardigan.

A Bazaar in aid of a fund for the erection of a schoolroom in connection with the Tabernacle Chapel was held on Monday and Tuesday, in rooms opposite the Shire-hall. The arrangement reflected great credit on the managers. The attendance of visitors on both days was large, and persons of all denominations aided the laudable project both by contributions and pur- chases. FISHGUARD NATIONAL SCHOOL.—In addition to the first class Queen's Scholarship so honourably obtained by Mary Ann Griffiths, the Pupil Teacher of 1856, the Pupil Teachers of 1855 have also been successful, Thomas Morse having obtained a first class, and William Garnon a second class, for their first year's examination, which secures to each of them an additional sum of X6 for travelling expenses.

NARBERTH ELECTION.—An active canvass of the Electors of this place was made by both candidates on Tuesday last, with results reported satisfactory to both parties. Time will solve the result. NARBERTH PETTY SESSIONS were held yesterday the 12th inst., in the Town-hall, before J. L. G. P. Lewis, and J. James, Esqrs.—George Pike, John Williams, Wm.

Their worships complimented the neighbours for the assistance rendered to the policemen, twenty or thirty men having started immediately in pursuit of the prisoners upon tho hue and cry being raised.
GLAMORGANSHIRE. SWANSEA.—The present member for Swansea, who, like his predecessors, went into the House without being troubled by an opponent, will, it appears, meet with strenuous oppo- sition to his re-election. Already there is one candidate in the field, a gentleman of good local position, Mr. C. H. Smith, of Derwen Fawr, near Swansea. It is said, too, that Mr. Grove, Q C., will also solicit the suffrages of the electors. Mr. Smith's address has just been issued. He avows him- self a Liberal, believing that the possession of civil and religious liberty ever constituted the best and safest bulwark of a free and great country. As regards our affairs with China, he says" Whenever I see the flag of my country insulted, or atrocities committed on those who are entitled to its protection, in whatever part of the globe, I, as an in- dividual, whatever may be the station I fill, shall not fail on such an occasion to give my support in vindicating and up- holding the cause of my Sovereign and the supremacy of British law and justice." NEATH.—Mr. Vaughan, of Rheola, accompanied by Mrs* Yaughan, canvassed the voters of Neath on the 11th inst.' On the conservative interest.

NEATH.—An inquest was- hold before Alexander Cuthbert- son, Esq., coroner, on the 10th inst., on the body of a woman named Reynolds, who was returning from Neath market on Saturday night last, in company with her husband and two children, and in crossing the South Wales Railway, near the Neath Abbey, a train passing at the time, the engine caught her clothes and she was killed on the spot. Verdict, ac- cidental death." VALE OF NEATH RAILWAY.—Several truck loads of broken carriages which were demolished by the late accident near Pont Walby, were brought down to Neath station on the 11th inst. The principal portion of the damaged trucks were made of iron, and were a perfect wreck.
BRISTOL DISTRICT COURT OF BANKRUPTCY. I On Thursday, before Mr. Commissioner Hill. Be Qeorgt Williams, Ebbw Vale and Monmoutli.-A motion for the recall of the certificate granted to this bankrupt in January 1855, was made, on behalf the assignees, by Messrs. Leman and Humphreys, under the circumstances detailed in our papers of the 14th and 21st ult. Since the case was last before the court Mr. Henry Humphreys, plumber. Mitchel- dean, had given evidence that shortly before Williams's bankruptcy, and when he and Williams were consulting together on the embarrassed state of his affairs, Mrs. Williams handed to witness a sum of E250 in gold to take care of for her. He did so until after the bankrupt ob- tained his certificate, and having then returned the money Williams recommenced business therewith. About three weeks ago, witness was sent for to Monmouth by Williams, and the bankrupt and his wife suggested that a mortgage of their house should be executed to witness, the represents. tion to be made being that he had himself advanced that money to Williams which he had simply returned to lits. Williams after holding it temporarily in possession on her behalf. These facts having been proved in court, and further evidence having been adduced as to the fraudulent dealings of the bankrupt with a debt due to his estate before his failure by one Fellowes, his Honour ordered that the certificate granted to the bankrupt should be set aside for fraud. A messenger was forthwith despatched to take possession of the bankrupt's property, and notices were issued with a view to secure whatever other property belonging to him might be in the hands of others. It is in contemplation to take proceedings against Humphreys for concealing the fact that so much gold had been entrusted to him by Mrs. Williams.—A notice was served upon the bankrupt to attend in court next day (Friday,) and as he did not appear a warrant was issued for hia apprehension.- Bristol Gazette.
DEATH OF THE EARL OF FIFE.-We have to announce that this nobleman died at his residence, Duff-house, on Weduesday night at five minutes past 11. He is succeeded in his estates and his Irish titles by Mr. James Duff, M.P. for Banffshire. LORD PALMERSTON.—THE COUNTRY.—THE COMMON COUNCIL.—The enthusiasm in favour of Lord Palmerston hourly grows. From all parts of the provinces there is one unanimous and intense feeling in the Premier's favour, and unmeasured condemnation of the mendacious conduct of the Coalition. On Monday, the requisition to call a public meeting in the City to express the popular feeling there in his Lordship's favour, received signatures as fast as they could be written. At the Common Council meeting the same enthusiasm was manifested, and, although seventeen, on a division, dissented from the propriety of a demonstra- tion in his Lordship's favour, it was not because the dissentients were less friendly than the others to the noble Lord, but simply that they doubted the expediency of making any public demonstration in his favour at a time when the bill for Corporate Reform in the City was on the eve of being brought under the consideration of the Legislature.-Su)t. SINGULAR ACCIDENT TO MR. GLADSTONE, M.P. — An accident of an unusual nature, the occurrence of which seems to be known to very few persons, happened on Tues- day night last to the right hon. gentleman. Mr. Gladstone was returning from the House of Commons to his own resi- dence in Carlton-house Terrace after the division on Mr. Cobden's resolutions, and in a somewhat hazy state of mind, when he inadvertently trod on a fog-signal which some railway guard, in passing the Duke of York's .column, had carelessly dropped on the pavement. The effect was in- stantaneous the right hon. gentleman was projected some feet into the air, and descended with a heavy fall. A police- man wa by his side in a moment, and found him apparently unconscious. On being asked where he lived, no reply could 8c'ou :?.e time be obtained except the one word Sixteen," though, in the course of a quarter of an hour, Mr. Gladstone, on being more urgently pressed as to his address, got so far as "Sixteen-Downing-stteet." He was forthwith conveyed thither in a cab, and on knocking up the old hall-porter, the latter at once recognised the ex- Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the right hon. gentleman was removed to his own residence: He dozed throughout the remainder of the night, and was better in the morning. The story of the fog-signal rests upon the authority of the policeman, who declares that he distinctly heard the explosion, of which he was well acquainted with the peculiarities; but we hear that several members who were in the house on the previous evening are sceptical on the subject. They allege that unmistakeable symptoms of spontaneous combustion had exhibited themselves in the right hon. gentleman during the debate, and attribute the apparent incident to the matured development of those symptoms. We rejoice to hear that Mr. Gladstone is now comparatively calm, though his friends still feel grounds for considerable uneasiness.—Post.

THE CORN TRADE. CORN-EXCHANGB, March 11. The arrivals have not been large, especially of wheat and barley oats exhibit a large supply. The trade for wheat shows no great change, but prices are fairly supported. The transactions in barley and oats have not been nume- rous, though late rates continue generally current. NEWCASTLE, March 10.: At this morning's market there was a small attendance, and only a limited amount of business passing, without any alteration in price. Malting barley was in demand, at Is. per qr. advance. In other grain the trade was steady at former quotations. At the cattle market to-day the beast trade was steady, and nearly all was sold at full prices. The mutton trade was slow, at a decline of id per lb. Pigs sold at full prices. Beef, 6s to 8s per stone; pork, 7s to 78 6d mutton, 8d to 84d. At Rotherham, yesterday, there was not a large supply of stock, which met a quick sale, with higher prices. Beef, 811 to 8s 6d per stone; mutton, 7d to 9d per lb. HULL, March 10. The weather during the early part of the week was fine and dry, and farmers have made good progress with field labour. Yesterday there was a return of winter, and the ground was covered with snow. Imports of barley, beans, and tares are liberal, but of wheat and other grain small. "The trade in wheat (says Binney and Co's Circular) has remained without any material alteration. The agri- cultural markets show a slight improvement, no doubt caused partly by the decrease in farmers' deliveries. The continental advices are generally quoted dearer, especially in the Baltic, where purchases continue to be made for France, &c and this of itself will account for the limited arrival of foreign wheat into this port; the consuming markets, how- ever, do not respond in the least, and rather decline thar- otherwise. Millers complain of the dull state of the flour trade and purchase only for immediate requirements, and any attempt at improvement is resisted. An impression appears to ha.ve become general among country buyers and consumers that we are to be inundated with foreign imports, and there seems to be a dread of holding any stock, but so long as prices at the principal shipping porta abroad remain almost as high as quotations in'this country supplies thence must continue insignificant, and although with favourable weather and present prospects for the growing crop, we do not anticipate any material improvement, still we are unable to discover any cause for the feeling of inactivity and dis- trust that now seems to hangover the trade." At to-day's market there was a good supply of English wheat, and, although the condition was improved, the sale was slow at last week's rates. Foreign unaltered. Barley maintained late rates, but the demand was inactive. Beans and peas steady. Oats wert dull, and all except the bes qualities were lower. DUBLIN, March 10. We have no alteration to report in the currencies of our oorn-market since Friday.
