EXTRACTS FROM THIS WEEK'S PUNCH. PRINT—Lady with fashionable bonnet, large curtain and tight on forehead. Coalheayer-" Well-I am blow'd if that ain't too bad-for to go and make fun of hus in that! ridic'loua manner." SALMON SCARCE.—A newspaper paragraph lately stated that one Salmon, a banking agent, charged with defalcations: to the amount of £ 30,000, had absconded. If this is the case, we should be glad to hear of the take of that Salmon. ABOVE ALL PRICE. The report that certain French capitalists (Messrs. Pereira, Mires, Millaud, and other Rnthschildren of wealth) had combined their millions and billions for the purpose of! purchasing Punch is ridiculously untre and for tte ose of 1 all reasons, because there would not be capital snEBcient in! all France put together to command such a purchase. PRESENTS FROM PORTUGAL. The King of Portugal has sent to the Queen a present of cattle-a bull, a bull-calf, and two heifers of a dun colour, and not more than six-and-thirty inches high. Portugal having despatched these little cattle, when may Portuguese bond-holders expect her to post the pony, no matter how little the pony be,—to begin with ? BEAKS AND BEER. Mr. Hardy has introduced a Beer Bill, the object of wbiebi is to extend the system of magistrates' licenses from public houses to beer shops. What big brewer is the particular friend of Mr. Hardy? Why, since all public houses have to be licensed by magistrates, are there any low ppblic houses, the resorts of rascals and thieves ? Why not, in- stead of extending the licence-system, abolish it altogether ? Is it the opinion of everybody except the big brewers, and the Injustices, their confederates on the bench, that the wisest way of dealing with beer would be to establish Free Trade in that article, and grant publicans liberty instead of licence. MOXEY AND MARRIAGE. The Lord Chancellor's new Divorce Bill maintains due homage to the majesty of the law and the profits of the lawyers. A man's wife still remains to him his goods and chattels. If a man possesses a beautiful picture, a magnifi- cent piece of porcelain, and either picture or pottery is ma- liciously damaged or fractured, the owner thereof has, of course, a remedy at law for the injury. He brings his suit, arais awarded in recompense so much money. Now the la* as it is left by Lord Cranworth, leaves the wife of a man's bosom in the condition, no higher and no lower, of the picture and the vase. If spotted or flawed she is to be paid for, and there is an end. Very commercial, this; but not very complimentary to the dignity of human nature. Bat so it w. When a wife fails to be good, she is goods. A REAL BLESSING FOR P2DESTRIASS. A most admirable invention is now in course of being ad- vertised under the title of the .C Self-Breaking Perambula- tor. Mothers are strongly recommended to procure this Perambulator, if they employ their nursemaids to wheel their children about the pavements in any vehicle of the kind. A Perambulator which breaks itself has the greatest advantage over one which remains unbroken, but is always breaking somebody's shins. TH8 RAVENOUS PUBLIC. Encore cried a stupendous wag at Cremorne the other evening, after a brilliant display of fireworks, and we fancy we have heard the same cry on similar occasions. How- ever, the facetious demand is the best satire on the stupid system of Encores. Mr. Simpson might with equal justice be expected to give a repetition of his fireworks as a popular singer be called to repeat every one of his songs. There are gluttons, howe, er, who, if Madame Saqui fell from the tight rope, would go away dissatisfied if the acci- dent wasn't encored. TALLOW AND GIIIUEL. I Mr. Sims Beeves bad been singing Come into the garden, Maud, when there arose a vehement outcry for an encore. Ladies and Gentlemen," said the popular tenor, aa soon as the noise had somewhat abated, I am eorry to tell you that Maud is labouring under a severe cold. In fact, her Mamma has just sent her to bed. Under these circum- stances, it will be quite useless for me to ask Maud to come into the garden* again this evening. As soon as she has re- covered, I shall only be too happy to oblige you." ECCLESIASTICAL FASHIONS. His Holiness the Pope will be about the house of certain drapers in Kegent Street; an establishment calling itself the "Sponaalia." They advertise a "Patent Pallium." Now, the right of conferring the Pallium is reserved by the Pontiff to himself. and he also holds that the Pallium which he supplies is the only genuine and original patent article. The house in Regent Street must therefore look out for the thunders of the Vatican. For whom the Patent Pallium is intended we can only surmise. If it is not designed for the fair sex, it has perhaps been devised to meet a want of the Puseyites, who have been crying for copes and stoles, and other millinery, and will probably be delighted with a pretty Pallium. having got that, perhaps, they will next, perad- venture, be desirous of wearing Crinoline. CAN'T BE TOO CAUTIOUS. A statement has been going round the papers about an exceedingly fine trout, which has been booked by a gen- tleman in one of the private banks. Mr. Grove, the eminent fishmonger, has given it as his decided opinion, that if the fish had been allowed to live a good deal longer it would have been a great deal larger. This proposition we will not dispute, but we do not see the expediency of inviting the public attention, just now, to a banker's hooking anything. Luckily the bank mentioned happens to be one of adaman- tine, and almost Pre-Adamantine reputation, but atill the words bank" and U hook it" should be kept apart, in these days, as jealously as Inciters and gunpowder. WHAT LOCKSLEY HALL SAID BEFORE HE PASSED HISI OXFORD RBSPONSIONS (vulgo SMALLS). Inscribed to the Poet Laureate. I Oh the misery of Smalls!" the cark the turmoil and the grind, Oh the cruel, cruel fetters which are wreathing round my mind! There is grammar, there is Euclid, and far worse than all of these, Arithmetical refinements, with their stocks and rules of threes, With their discount and their practice and their very vulgar fractions Smashing up the one ideal into many paltry factions. Square root makea the head to ache, the decimals the tear to start, For they're ever circulating the fibres of my heart- Learning grammar is like putting water in a leaky pot, And its memory is only like the days remembered not; Verbs in MI" are aggravating, Euclid makes the foot to stamp, Only lucid when enlightened by a moderator lamp, The old spider and his cobwebs! Would that I could sweep him out from the dust and must of ages with a triumph and a shout; Shall I spurn him with my foot, or shall I scorn him with mine eye? Shall I tear him into pieces ? Southey burnt him—so will I.

The spectators became more and more impatient as false start after false start was made. Not until after a dozen ineffectual attempts were the horses despatched from the post, and no sooner had Mr. Hibburd given the word Go," than Chevalier d'Industrie took the command, with Gaber- lunzie, Commotion, Oakball, Tnrbit, Anton, Arsenal, Strathnaver, Blink Bonny, Wardennarske, Adamas, and Lady Hawthorn forming a cluster in his wake, Saunterer, Skirmisher, Tournament, and M D. being in the centre of the ruck. They ran thus to halfway up the hill, where Gaberlunzie went up to the Chevalier lying second, Anton third, Strathnaver, Arsenal, and Commotion heading the next lot. No further change occurred until reaching the mile post, when Anton rushed to the front, Lambourn running into the second place, Chevalier d'lndustrie going on third, Strathnaver and Arsenal next. On rounding Tattenhar Corner M.D. emerged from the ruck and showed in the third place, Lambourn at the same time joining Anton, with whom he ran nearly head and head round the turn, Adamas, Tournament. Strathnaver, and Skirmisher keeping close company, and Lady Hawthorn, who had up to this point ran with the leading horses, gradually dropping away into the rear. When they had fairly landed in the straight, Commotion disappeared from the front, and Black Tommy, Adamas, Arsenal, M.D., Wardermarske, Blink Bonny, and Strathnaver showed nearly in a line behind Lambourn and Anton. On crossing the road Lambourn gave way, and at the distance M.D. broke down and stopped as if he was shot." On nearingthe stand Strathnaver headed Anton, with Blink Bonny waiting upon them, Adamas, Arsenal, and Black Tommy going on in close attendance. In a few strides further a most exciting set-to ensued, and Charlton "let out" Blink Bonny, who immediately rushed to the front, Black Tommy. Adamas, Arsenal, and Anton being well up in her wake, a close race in ending in favour of Blink Bonny by a neck, the second beating the third by a head only, and a neck separating the third from the fourth Anton and Arsenal were fifth and sixth, close together—so well up, indeed, that the rider of pach thought he was either second or third. Wardermarske, Lambourn, Commotion, Zuyder Zee, Skirmisher, Saunterer, Beeswax, Colt, Tournament, and Sydney formed the next lot, but we were unable to determine their relative positions. The "tail" consisted of Laertes, Bird-in-the-Hand, Turbit, Gaberlunzie, Special License, Dusty Miller, and Loyola. The BENTINCK PLATE of 50 sovs. (Handicap ) Winners extra. One mile. Mr. F.

I TRADE REPORT. I Wednesday Evening. This being the Derby day, there were no public salos, and few transactions by private contract took place. TALLOW.—There has been but little doing to-day. The price is 57s for May and J une; and 56s for the last three months's delivery. BRISTOL SUGAR MARKET (Wednesday, May 27). We have had a good demand for sugar this week, and rates have advanced fully Is per cwt., at which nearly all the stocks ready for market, consisting of about 500 hhds. and tierces, found buyers. To-day the market is a little flat, in con- sequence of the large arrivals caused by the change of wind.
I THE CORN TRADE. I CORN-EXCHANGE, May 27. The arrivals of flour and all grain this week has been very small. This morning's market was moderately at- tended; holders of wheat were very firm in their demands, but the amount of business transacted was limited. The value of spring corn of all descriptions is unaltered from Monday. DUBLIN, May 26. We had a brisk market at our Corn-Exchange to-day. Whe it of all qualities was 6d dearer than on Friday. Oats fully supported that day's currencies, and Indian corn realised an advance of Is to 2s. NEWCASTLE, May 26. At this morning's market there was a liberalsupplyof wheat, for which the demand was active, and prices were further advanced. Barley difficult to sell, except at lower rates. Oats in steady demand, with an upward tendency. At the cattle-market to-day there was a brisk trade done, and all bought up. Sheep in good request, at the extreme rates of last week. Pork trade dull. Beef, 6s to 8s 9d per stone; pork, 7s to 711 6d sheep, 6!d to 74 d per lb. SHEFFIELD, May 26. At to-day's market there was an average show of wheat, but the trade was dull, the high prices asked checking sales. The best wheat is noted Is per load (2s 8d per qr.) higher. Oats Is per quarter higher. In other kinds no change. At the cattle market to-day there was a fair show of both beasts and pigs, but few transactions took place. Milch cows realised from E15 to 124; barren beasts, L9 to £ 14; calves, 108 to 40s store pigs, 18s to 55s; porkers, 7s 6d to 7s lOd per stone. An average quantity of both hay and straw, which realised last week's prices. At Rotherbam yesterday there was a good show of stock, and prices had an upward tendency. Beef, 8s to 9s per stone; foreign, 8s to 8s 6d; mutton, 7d to 8d per lb. LIVERPOOL, May 26. The transactions in cotton have again been small, the sales to-day amounting only to 4,000 bales, of which 1,000 are on speculation and for export, at about previous rates. The sugar market continues quiet, the sales being con- fined to 500 bags Dummah dates at 56s 6d per cwt. We have a good attendance of both town and country millers and dealers, as well as of Irish buyers, at our corn market to-day, but the advanced rate required for wheat m since the close of week creates a reluctance to follow up 3 extensive transactions, and many having retired without operating, the business reported in this grain is. upon the g whole, of only moderate amount; holders are, however, in H general pretty firm, and we note an advance, upon last ■ Tuesday s quotations, of 6d. per bushel. Of home-grown S wheat there was a fair supply, of which the quality and g condition were generally good, and an advance of fully 3d. ■ per bushol was established over the prices of this day week. 8 We raise the value of flour Is. per barrel, but the sale some- 3 what slow. Barley and beans unaltered in value or demand. H In oats and oatmeal a fair business doing at an advance of B Id. to 2d. per bushel and Is. per load. Indian corn forms B au exception to other articles, the demand continuing ■ unabated, and prices further advanced, yellow American ■ being saleable at 408.; mixed at 39s. to 39s. 3d. and white ■ at 40s. 6d. to 41s. per 4801ba., which is an amendment of 9 2s. to 2s. per qr. on the week. I HULL, May 26. B The weather has been as favourable as could be desired, I the temperature having had a high range, and frequent B showers of rain having lallen. All kinds of vegetation; B present a most promising aspect. I The trade in Wheat has been active during the week, and I a further advance of 2s. per qr. has taken place. With ■ regard to this advance in the face of the present fine wea- 9 ther, Binney and Co.'s circular says it is owing to the re- ■ duced stocks in granary throughout the country, the unsa- I tisfactory accounts of the growing crops in America, the B continued demand for Ireland, as well as competition with ■ our nearer foreign neighbours, and an impression that H farmers in this kingdom do not hold their usual quantity of B wheat. The advance appears to have been brought about B by consumptive requirements, and appearance-* indicate a B further advance, unless checked by foreign arrivals. 9 At to-day's market there was a small supply of wheat, B which was readily cleared off at an advance of 2s. per quarter. The little foreign on offer fully maintaios its H value. Barley dull, but no lower. Beans and peas steady. B Brst oats rather lower.

I. TO THE I ELECTORS OF CARMARTHENSHIRE. GENTLEMEN,— I THE sudden and generally lamented death of your late -L much esteemed Representative, Saunders Davies, Esq., causes a vacancy for one seat in Parliament for your I County. I have been urged by a great many influential Gentlemen in your County to offer mysdf; and althnugh, upon more than one former occasion I declined so flattering [ an invitation, from unwillingness to disturb arrangements which otherwise would be carried out without a contest, I feel that in now coming forward I do no violence to any existing arrangement, and at once solicit the honour of your support. It is not necessary, nor would it be becoming in me, to say one word of a recommendatory character. My conduct for 30 years as a Magistrate, Landlord, and Resident, is not unknown to you nor have I ever sought to conceal my political opinions, they are those of an independent Man, willing to support any useful legislative measure be it brought forward by whom it may. My career in Parliament during three Sessions will establish the fact, that wherever I thought Lord Palmerston's propositions right, I voted for them, regardless of what,the party with whom I generally acted might do. Upon the question which precipitated the late Dissolution I was prepared with an amendment which the Government would have supported, and which would to a certainty have secured a majority the other way; but I was urged to withhold it, Of a full discussion of the policy or impolicy of the Chinese War could not take place, and condemning as I did that policy I was contrained to comply, although most wishful to strengthen the hands of the authorities to bring the U/trighteow War to a close. I had also a Measure in progress for regulating the Weights and Measures throughout the kingdom, which I have reason to believe had the approval of Lord Pal- merston's Government and I projected other measures of a public nature. I am an advocate for the utmost retrenchment, consistent with the safety of our Establish- ments and the Institutions of our Country, which I evinced by my votes in the House. If with these antecedents my sorvices are acceptable to you by holding out a promise of future good, I shall derive from the honour, that satisfaction which will go far to reward my exertions. I remain, Gentlemen, Your very obedient servant. IJ. LLOYD DAVIES. t I

CARMARTHEN 1 YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 1 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN to the YOUNG MEN | I of CARMARTHEN that, in consequence of the Jgj uuexpected and gratifying success of the Meeting held fj last Monday night, by which a Committee was easily K formed, this Committee will be prepared to lay before them g the Rules and Plan of Operations that they will advise to be adopted for the guidance of the Society, on TUES DAY next, the 2nd of JUN. ttt QUARTEL PAST EIGHT in the B I Evening, in the TO WN HALL. It is. therefore, earnestly hoped that all the Young Men who can attend this Meeting j| will do so; and that they will considerably augment the s List of Members which was formed last Monday Evening, inasmuch as arrangements will be made by which the I names of those who desire it can be enrolled as they pass B out of the Meeting. The attendance of those Gentlemen who have already given in their names as Members is es- B pecially requested. The present opportunity is considered by the Committee 2 as the most suitable to inform the Public that for this Society they will not be called upon for any SaJjseriptiou | but as the Committee have reason to believe that many 1 persons in this Town are anxious to advance the interests I of this Society as much as possible, who, by reason of their ago cannot enter its lists as Members, of course if any liberal individuals should at any time feel disposed to assist the Society pecuniarily, such assistance would not only materially enhance the prosperity of an Association from which very much will be expected, exerting as it will a marked influeuce on the moral character of the rising generation, but will be very gratefully received by Mr. GEORGE PKATTEX, Picton-terrace, the Financial Secretary, to whom all communications of this nature should be addressed. On behalf of the Committee, JOHN OLIVER, Secretary.

A vacancy has occurred in the representation of this 8 county by the lamented death of Mr. Saunders Davies, who represented Carmarthenshire in Parliament since the year 1842, when he was unanimously elected. He was chosen by almost universal consent from those who were named as eligible. There were many eminently qualified, but he was considered most likely to conciliate and to disarm opposition. The requisition presented to him was numerously signed and, being ever ready to accept the duties pertainiug to property and his social position, he emerged from private life at the bidding I of the electors, who supported him throughout his Par- liamentary career irrespective of political principles. It must not be forgotten that at the time we refer to there were several gentlemen in the county connected with it by property and long residence, any one of whom might have been selected without invidious reflection on the others—gentlemen whose education and pursuits pointed them out as peculiarly adapted for the honour gentlemen whose professed opinions on state policy were in unison with the progressive spirit of the age. Sir James Hamlyn Williams for instance had previously con- tested the county on the liberal interest, & this gave promi- nence to his claims on the constituents, apart from his other nudoubted qualifications. We recur to these circumstances in order to show the esteem in which Mr. Davies was then held by the electors, and to repeat that during the whole period of his representation he maintained the confidence reposed in him. He was a Conservative, and generally \oted with his party; but he was not im- pervious to conviction, and frequently gave independent support to those measures which he considered serviceable to the country. He was not blinded by prejudice, and was ever ready to give a reason for his parliamentary conduct. While we could not see eye to eye with him on some questions of state polity, we ever recognised in him honesty of purpose and political consistency. | However, be was on all occasions watchful of our local interests both in the House of Commons and out of it, 1 and never failed to use his influence when required— J* whether for a political friend or opponent. 1 ■ Who shall succeed Mr. Davies ? This is the all ib- sorbing question at present ill the county. We do not e profess to answer it; the constituents alone must de- s cidc. It is hoped the best man will be chosen. He I whose principles and position entitle him to the honour. s The time is gone by for extremes. Moderate men of independence who are not tied down to theories or articles of political faith-who are prepared to merge all differences to promote the public weal, deserve our support. Why, it is asked, should a representative pledge himself to vote for certain measures to gratify the crochets of any party ? Better-infinitely better to send him to Parliament unfettered on a plain declaration of broad principles. A measure may be perfectly good in itself, and abstractedly obtain concurrence of sentiment; but it is possible to introduce it at a moment in every respect ill-suited to its beneficial operation. However, we have B now only to notice the aspirants for the seat, without ■ entering into a discussion of their relative merits. Mr. S Lloyd Davies is the only one who has issued an address, 9 inserted in another column, in which he states that he is a 9 candidate at the" request of many influential gentlemen." I His adherents anticipate success, and in this county he has a 8 great many friends and political supporters. He has many 9 claims on the electors, having for thirty years devoted him- self to the public business of the county. Several new §§ works and valuable improvements have been projected and B carried out mainly through his instrumentality, particu- || larly in the erection of bridges and the construction of S roads, and last but not least are his exertions to promote jj railway communication in Wales. His political opinions s jg need no exposition. In many points a majority of the ? g electors differ from him, while they are disposed to look I H with favour on his declaration of independence, which he ￼ §j maintains by the assertion "that during the three sessions g of the late Parliament, whenever he thought Lord Pal- El merston's propositions right he voted for them regardless §j of what the party with whom he generally acted might |J do." Mr. Davies also promises to introduce various useful | H measures. The course he pursued when in Parliament is | B known, and it fortunately leaves no doubt as to his poli- 1 g tical tendencies. Our object is not to criticise the address I H of Mr. Davies, but merely to direct attention to some I H portions of it. We cannot, however, refrain from par- 1 H ticularly noticing the passage in it condemnatory of the S Ij Chinese War, which had he been judicious he would have i H omitted, as the question relating to the origin of the | §1 war is finally disposed of, not only by the House of | B Commons but by the country from whom Lord Palmerston | g has received most unequivocal support in the policy which i he adopted, and which Mr. Davies condemns. i 9 The other candidate is Mr. Pugh, of Manorabon, lato J i Chairman of the Carmarthenshire Quarter Sessions. He f 9 has not issued an address, but we are assured that he will H contest. At a meeting of his friends at Llandilo, it was J5 H unanimously resolved to support him in opposition to any ? ■ other candidate, and a numerously signed requisition has fe n been presented to him. It is said that his political views | jg are moderate, and that if returned he would generally f |j vote with the Administration of Lord Palmerston. | B Two opinions do not exist as to Mr. Pugh's qualifications B for the office. A scholar, a politician, and an independent r gentleman of large fortune devotedly attached to the!. j institutions of our country, with a firm hold on the affec- f, tions of the people, he is without doubt pre-eminentiy fitted to represent this county in Parliament. We await a f declaration of his opinions. ;j Sir James Hamilton has been favourably mentioned as a candidate, but we have not heard of his intentions to pre- sent himself. There are other rumours which should meet with no indulgence, as they are for the most part idle j-i I gossip. I .i .101.; 1- i .).;
I LAMENTED DEATH OF DAVID ARTHURI i SAUNDERS DAVIES, ESQ., M.P. æ J ] I | The death of Mr. Saunders Davies is an event mourned | ov er with emotions of deepest sorrow wherever he was 1 j known. In this and the adjoining counties his untimely 1 i removal is regarded with sensations peculiarly mournful. lie spent the whole of his life amongst us, and from I 1 early boyhood was distinguished for those excellencies I 1 Idlich at a more mature age secured for him universal esteem 1 and nffection. We have felt the genial influence of those iialities. We have respected the cultivated mind, and admired the amiable disposition, of one who was ever I ready to accept the public duties imposed upon him and It,) do good unto all men. The transcendant excellence of his character was goodness. His praise is upon every one's lips. Have we not, then, abundant reason to dc- | plorc the death of a purely benevolent and useful man ? iln expressing these sentiments we utter no fulsome pane- gyric over the uncovered grave of departed worth. We are sure the heart of tho district pulsates to every feeling express. Men of all creeds and parties, high and low, I rich and poor, delight to do him honour, and his epitaph I is graven on the hearts of his countrymen—a monument to his memory more durable and gratifying than sculptured marble. Mr. Davies had not enjoyed robust health for some time past; and possessing a highly sensitive mirid, disease | was superinduced by grievous domestic affliction, con- | summated, as it wore, by the death of hts brave and gallant son, whose head was struck off by a shot while courageously assisting his colonel in the attack on the Hedan. This melancholy but glorious death on the battle | field visibly affected the health of Mr. Davies, \\ho naturally hoped for the return of his son with honours I thick upon him. A visit to the continent and recreation in the country during the Parliamentary recess encouraged the expectation of returning health, and when re-elected | in March hist, he expressed a belief that he should be able | to attend closely to his duties in the House of Commons, jj and from the commencement of the sessions until Thursday week he appeared in every important division. On Friday he dined at the University Club, in company with his son, Mr. A. H. S. Davies, Chancellor Melville, and a friend, and appeared to be in his usual slate of health. Having finished dinner, without any premonition he fell forward and instantaneously expired. Mr. Davies was, horn on the 9th of June, 1792 in Quay-street, Carmarthen. He was the only son of David I Davies, Esq., M.D., a physician of great skill and repute who married Susanna, the only daughter and heiress of Erasmus Saunders, Esq., the head of a family that had long been settled at Pentre, in the county of Pembroke. We find in Burke's History of the Landed Gentry of England, that the Darieses were resident for several generations at Llandovery, where they possessed much I influence. Evan Davies, one of this family, commanded a troop of cavalry in the wars under John, Duke of Marlborough, in the reign of Queen Ann. The subject of this brief memoir was sent at an early age to Harrow, where he must have profited by the admirable teaching I of Dr. Butler, the then head master, for after subsequently passing three years at Christ Church College, Oxford, Mr. S Davies concluded his academical career by obtaining a I second class in Uteris Humanioribus and graduated M.A. As a proof of the high estimation in which he wns held I at this period of his life, we may say that ho laid the foundation of many friendships which he retained to its close. The friends we allude to were Percival, once Prime Minister of England, and many others eminent in judicial and literary life. Mr. Davies was called to the Bar in IS18, anJ practised for several years with considerable success as g counsel on the South Wales circuit. His services were g in frequent requisition as arbitrator, in. which capacity g he universally gave satisfaction to the parties concerned. That Mr. Davies's forensic abilities were of a judicial east may be inferred from his subsequent useful career as Chairman of the Cardiganshire Quarter Sessions, where his souud knowledge of law and rigid impartiality were I frequently brought to the test. On the 31st July, 1826, Mr. Davies married Elizabeth Maria, only daughter of Colonel Owen Philipps, of Wil- liamston, Pembrokeshire, and sister of the present jf Member for Haverfordwest, having the following issue:- Arthur Henry Saunders Davies, Owen Gwyn Saunders ?J Davies, Henry David Saunders, Susan Maria Anne, and Agnes Elizabeth. Arthur Henry, the eldest, has t* been educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford, and is now a student of the Iuner Temple. Owen Gwyn ê entered the Army and became a Lieutenant in the 38th jjS Regiment of the Line, went out to the East, and fell j| in the siege of Sebastopol. Susan Maria married James & Lloyd, second son of the lato Thomas Lloyd, Esqr., of ;| Bromvydd. Henry and Agues both died at an early age. P Mr. Davies was elected to represent Carmarthenshire || in December, 1842. There was no opposition to his s return. He was induced to solicit the suffrages of the I constituents by a numerously signed requisition which i was presented to him. He has from that period been H returned, without contest, at each general election. His | parliamentary career was invariably characterised by the consistency with which he upheld the political principles of the Conservative party, and his urbanity and kindness of heart neutralised the action of thuse who were con- scientiously opposed to the views he entertained. An upright magistrate, a kind neighbour, and the poor man's friend, Mr. Davies died lamented by all. ITEQUIESCAT IN PACE.

A public meeting was held on Monday evening in the Town Hall, ? for the purpose of establishing a Young Men's Christian ? Association. The meeting was intended exclusively for ? young men, but in order to countenance the proceedings ? several respectable inhabitants of the town were present. 1 Business was commenced in the Council Chamber which soon proved too smail to accommodate the meetill" which adjourn- I Sed to the Hall. Mr. Simmons, house surgeon of thcCarmar- ? thenshire Infirmary presided, and having stated the object for I ? which they had assembled, several of the students in the si Presbyterian College entered into details of the propose"l S Association urged various reasons in support of it ,but with! Jj morez?al than discretion. It is intended to form the :s- i ? socia:ion m the manner of the original Society in London, j land it will comprise a library and reading room to he sup- 1 a plied with religious publications. Bible-classes, lecturer, ?competition for prize essays, meetings for prayer, will j ? constitute its most conspicuous features. A prayer was snid ? at the beginning and end of the meeting, which was ad- journed for a week. About sixty young persons gave their j ? names as members. The following have been elected a ?committee:— Messrs. John Oliver, C-S.Symmons, R. H. j Itoberts, D. E. Edwardes, Geo. Pratten, T. Edwardes, Hpnty t Lewis, W. Daniel, J. B. Rogers, D. 0. Edwards, J. Mortimer, ? and T. Davies. j EL -Fc-riON OF CHURCHWARDENS. —On Friday last a vestry meeting was held in St, David's Church for the purpose of 3 ifc electing wardens. The Kev. D. A. Williams presided, and is Mr. John Thomas, Lammas-street, and Mr. Rees, Penl.ti, ? having been elected wardens, a conversation ensued on th? finances, from which it appeared that a considerable sum was jj 1 required to meet the exigencies of the church. ￼ I THE CARMARTHE GLEE AND MADRIGAL SOCIETY.—This I society gave its first public concert on Tuesday evening last, ? in the Assembly Rooms, with remarkable success. But | before we notice the performance it is requisite to state that | the Glee and Madrigal Society was established nearly twelve | months since, on the failure of a more pretentious Singing I Society," under the impression that with more efficient con- d Ilctors, and an abnegation cf caste, a large and efficient I class of amateur singers could be formed. Mrs. Ilowells and a and Mr. Spivey were at once named as most competent to take upon themselves the instruction and management, and the concert on Tuesday was the best possible proof that pub- lic confidence was not misplaced, as tho proficiency attained by the singers is attributable to the nice musical discrimina- tion and careful training of the conductors, who had showered them the well-merited plaudits of UP) ossembly. Tim programme was judiciously Selected, presenting sever".• ehoiee ftorccalix of a character superior to those we havo heard on former occasions in that room. But the excelicnco of the concert was not so much in the pieces as in their execution, which really surpriseù even thoo who expectell a display of considerable executive power. It is sufficient for our purpose to name the pieces and their composers, as our readers arc doubtless acquainted with then), rendering a critical description superfluous, premising that they were sung with precision, sweetness of tone, fulness of expression, and with admirable gradation from soft to loud, and vice versa. The glees were" See the chariot at hand," by 9 llorsley Strike, strike the lyre, let music tell," by Cooke"; ■ W hen winds breathe soft along the silent deep," by Wobbe; S Sigh no moic, ladies, sigh no more," by Stevens Awake | iEolian lyre," by Danbv "Spring's delights are all re- I viving," by Jdillen Ye spotted snakes with double 9 tongue," by Stevens. The Misses Barfield sang a charming H duet, by Giover, "Oh, ever thus from childhood's hour," and Miss Barfield also sang "None remember thee." y We have very rarely heard amateurs to excel them 9 and when they gain a little more confidence in their I powers they will do even better. In the duet, harmony, S purity of tone, and deep pathos were happily ùlcndcù- B kindling the most touching emotions, and it was listened to 9 at first and when repeated in obedience to an irresistablo 9 encore with almost breathless attention. The solo was given ■ with great taste and accuracy, and was heard with pleasure and loudly encored. We may hear state that Mrs. Howells B played the accompaniment much better than is usual in a subducd tone making it subordinate to the voice, as it 9 ■ should he. Mr. Spivey, who was received with tremendous H applause, sang "I think of thee at noon my love" by g Harper, a beautiful, but very difficult song which be H rendered to perfection, especially those portions of it which B tested the power and flexibility of his voice. lie was of H course encored and although nearly exhausted, and the B atmosphere heated to a high degree instead of repeating the ■ song, he gave "The old garden gate" with infinite Bj gusto. Mr. Dyer sang "Hurrah for the gipsy's jovial life" H by Winterbottom, which was very well received. It is ■ hoped this concert will be followed hy others of a similar B character, as they will no doubt be properly appreciated and B tend to strengthen the society. « CARMARTHEN POLICE COURT.—At the usual court oil B Friday last, the magistrates present were J. L. Philipps, B Esq., (Mayor), E. H. Stacey, Esq., and Capt. J. G. Philipps B but there was no business whatever to transact. —On Monday Bj before E. II. Stacey, Esq. James Rowley was charged with g having deserted from the ninety-fourth regiment of foot, H stationed at Pembroke-Dock. P.C, William Jones stated B that on Saturday night about half-past nine o'clock he ap- H prehended the prisoner at William Owen's common lodging H house. He noticed him there when inspecting the house, B and from his appearance concluded that he was a deserter. B On being questioned the prisoner told Jones he had been dis- B charged, but had unfortunately lost the paper stating it. B When at the station house he admitted that he had deserted B from the 94th regiment that morning. Prisoner wascommit- H ted to await orders from the war office On Thursday, before ■ Dr Lawrence and E. H. Stacey, Esq. Edward Williams, H carrier, A berystwith, was charged with crueHy to a horse. B P.C. Williams stated that on Wednesday defendant cruelly H beat his horse, which he was driving in a spring van down H Lower Market-street. The horse was trotting down Nott- B square, and on approaching a decline in the. street ho B slackened his pace, and to make him go faster defendant B beat him severely with a whip over his sides and legs. The B van was partially laden with boxes. The horse seemed ex- B hausted and was in a wretched condition,with large wounds on B his legs and shoulders. Defendant admitted that he beat the B horse as described, but denied the charge of cruelty, as ho ■ was more tender to his horse than to himself." In reply B to Dr. Lawrence, he said he had travelled between Abervst- B with and Carmarthen for upwards of thirty yoars-that he ■ accomplished the distance in a day and a half—that on B Wednesday he came from Llanwnen, and was obliged to H orive rupidly to meet the train. Dr. Lawrence said he had H heard the ease talkpd of yesterday soon after its occurrence, ■ and was satisfied the policeman had not exaggerated so far B as he was cenrerned he should impose a heavy penalty in all B such cases. The Magistrates, having consulted, convicted B the defendant in the penalty of £1 and costs. DIVISIONS.—For Mr. Spooner's motioa B on the Maynooth Grant (minority 91), Mr. David Morris, g Mr D. A. S.

INFORMATION FOR ORNITHOLOGISTS.—Last week there died at John's Town. in this borough, a duck who has waddled the road in that locality for twenty years past The duck who hatched the old lady" attained the patriarchal age of twenty-one summers. EVANS v. ERNEST.—At the Cou of Exchequer on Fri- day, at the Sitting in Banco, Mr. Hill and Mr. Bowen showed cause agaill3t a rule to spt aide an award and to re-open the matter, on the ground that the arbitrator had proceeded ex. parte in the absence of the defendant. It appeared that the cause was referred at the Spring Assizes for Carmarthen in 1855; that two meetings took place, when the plaintiff's case was gone into,.ai»d the further hearing adjourned till the month of March last, when the arbitrator finally fixed on Saturday, the 11th, to proceed. To thi appointment the defendant as well as tho plaintiff assented, but about a week before the day so appointed the attorney for the defendant intimated that he could not attend as, the day fixed fol1owing on Good Friday and bis client and his witnesses living in London, the appointment would be inconrcnient. The arbitrator, however, dpeming that after the great delay which had taken place already it was his duty to proceed, refused to put off the meeting, and soon afterwards, the defendant, not having attended, gave notice in the usual manner that he had made and published lis award. Under thee circumstances the defendant, On moving for the rule, now argued that he was not guilty of wilful delay, and that it was hard that he should be pre- cluded from placing his case before the arbitrator because he had found it inconvenient t6 attend on the day fixed. However, as he was somewhat to blame for not having attended, he now offered to pay all reasonable costs which mig-ht be irnpoed upon him. In answer to this thc plain- tiff's counsel contended that the arbitrator was perfectly justified in the course he pursued. Mr. Field and Mr. Allen appeared for the defendant. The Court unanimously hebl that the rule must be discharged. The conduct of the I learned arbitrator had not been impugned in any way, and i the defendant only urged that, a he had not been heard, the matter ought to be re-opened on his paying costs. He had not made out any case to warrant the Cauttin adopting I that course. The arbitrator, if subject to any blame at ail, could on ly be accmed of having been too good natured in allowing the matter to linger on too long. At all events, he had acted quite èorfcctly in determining to proceed in the absence of the defendant after due notice of the pro- posed meeting had been given, and of this there was no doubt whatever. It. was too much the practice of the pre- sent day to consider that references might be postponed to any other business. Such a practice could not but fail to ra bring that which was otherwise an excellent tribunal into dirputQ, and the dischare of this rule with C05ts would H operate as wholesomc lesson. 1 ule discharged accord- NEWCASTLE-EMLYN.—EXCISE CASE.—At a petty sessions held on Friday last, before J. R. L. Lloyd, Esq., Mr. Row, supervisor, preferred an information against David Jones, Pen forest, Kilredyn, for fraudulently making a quantity of malt, by which he had in- urred a penalty of £200. The case as proved by the evidence of Messrs. 11. Rowlands and T. II. Jackett, Inland Revenue officers, Cardigan and Kilgerran. On consideration of this being the defendant's first offence, and being very recently married, the magis- trates, who convicted him in the penalty of £.50, strongly recommended the Board of lxcise to accept a further miti- gation of the penalty incurred. The supervisor stated that, under the circumstances, he would readily support the re- commendation of the bench, but added that the Board were determined to sunpress illicit malting, and that the only effectual way to reach the moral feeling of the smuggler was through his pockets. NEWCASTLE-EMLYN PETTY SESSIONS were held on Friday last, before Captain Lloyd, Dolehaidd, W. P. Lewes, Llrs- jf| newydd, and T. D. Lloyd, Bronwvdd, Esqrs. David DaVles £ of Crygyboilion, Trcleach, appeared by summons charged by I Henry Rees, olcrseer of Treleach, for not giving up possessIOn g of a house which was the property of the churchwarden and | overseers of Treleach after notice to quit. Mr. Parry of | Carmarthen appeared in support of the charge, and Mr. | Mitchell, of Cardigan, for tho defendant. A warrant of ejectment was ordered to be issued.—John Davies of Pen- | b?artb, charged Howell Howell, Thomas Davies, and David S Grimthswith petty trespass. Mr. George Thomas of Car- 1 marthen appeared for the complainant, and Mr. Mitchell of f, Cardigan for the three defendants. The case was adJourned. | for a month.— A. poor rate summons was disposed of. 1 LLANDOVERY AUXILIARY CHURCH MISSIONARY SOCIETY. I —On Sunday last, the Hev. J. J. Ebswortb, M.A., Temple I church, Bristol, preached at Llandingat church, in aid of | the funds of this society, from xxi chap. St. John and last ;« part of the xvi. verse. Seimons were also preached at ji Llanfairarycryn and Capel Cynfab, and collections made at a each place. On Tuesday evening a public meeting was held | at the National school room, the Itev. Joshua Hughes, in tho | chair. The meeting was addressed in English by the Rev. b J. J. Ebbsworth, M.A., the deputation from the parent 'H society, the Rev. E. O.
