The day was remarkably fine, and a great number of persons availed themselves of the opportunity. Several excellent runs were made. after which about "seventy of the company met at Pantirion, where an excellent dinner awaited them, to which they were most hospitably entertain- ed by the worthy mayor, and the day was pleasantly spent with the utmost hilarity and good humour. TREGARON HIRING FAIR —The second hiring fair was held on Tuesday last, and was numerously attended both by masters and servants. Wages were very high, and great reluctance was shown on the part of the masters to comply wi h the demands of servants. A fair for the sale of pigs was held, and they sold at advanced rates. AllERYSTWITII HIRING FAIR.—The second hiring fair for this district was held on Monday last, when, as usual, there was an immense number of persons in the town (the weather being fine) who conducted themselves most credit- ably. The wages of farm servan's averaged lower than last year; there being but very limited requisition for the higher description of agricultural iabourers. ARERVSTWITII PETTY SESSIONS.—On Tuesday at the Town Hall, before G. Fossett, E<q., (major), F R. Roberts, Esq., ex-mayor, Thomas Jones, Esq., and D. Edward- Esq.

ABEKYSTWITH COliNTY COURT. — The usual monthly county court was held here on Thursday last, before J Johnes, Esq., jndge, but there were no cases of interest heard on the occasion, a court having been recently held. ABERYSTWITII.—THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE. — The pro- moters of this movement are always active here, and have undoubtedly been instrumental in eflecting much good. Oil Tuesday and Wednesday nights last meetings were held at the Town Hall, presided over by G. Thomas, Esq., con- vened for the purpose of establishing a temperance club, the object? of which were explained by Mr. George Green in English, and by Mr. John Williams in Welsh; the end in view being the preservation of those who have signed the pledge from retrograding. The meeting was eloquently- addressed by a gentleman from Glamarganshire in Welsh, whose address was interspersed with very forcible anecdotes and illustrations. There was a large attendance, and con- siderable interest appeared to be taken in the proceedings. It was reported that seventy persons joined the club, and much greater success is anticipated. The temperance cause is much indebted to Mr. John Williams, for his continual assiduity and activity in forwarding the movement. ABERYSTWITH. COUNCIL MEETING. An adjourned meeting of the council was held at the Town Hall on Tues- day last, when there were present—George Fossett, Esq., mayor, (in the chair), Messrs. J. Hughes, John Miiler, John Roberts, and Thomas Jones, Aldermen, and Mr. Edwards Mr. F. It. Roberts, Mr. J. Davies, Mr L. Pugh, Mr. R Watkins, Mr. T. W. Wells, Mr. Robert Edward, Mr. John Jenkins, and Mr. Richard Roberts, Councilmen. The sum of £500, advanced for work done towards the erection of the clock tower, being that day to be paid, and it having been agteed at the previous meeting of the council that the sum should be advanced out of the corporation property, it was ordered that the required amount be raised forthwith, by borrowing ioO each from the several members of the council and other gentlemen, the money to be repaid by instal- ments rateably out of the corporation funds, with interest at five per cent., until the whole be repaid. An order was made for paying Mr. Downie X450, advanced by him to the committee who superintended the erection of the tower. There was no other business.
BOIIN-AGF, AND AXOTHEH Y. VAUGIIAN. CLERK -SEQUES- ra.vriON.-On Wednesday at the Court of Exchequer, beforo the Lord Chief Baron and Barons Watson and Channell Mr. Sumner showed cause against a rule calling on the Lord Bishop of St. David s to show cause why he should not file an account in this court of all the money levied under a writ of sequestrari facias issued in this cause on the bene- fices of Llandefalley and Creckadam, within tbe diocessof St. David's. It appeared that the plaintiffs having reco- vered a debt against the defendant, issued a Wrrit of seques- tration on the 18th of August; but it was not delivered to the bishop until the 28th. The answer to the rule was that nothing had been received applicable to the sequestration, and therefore the bishop could not be called upon to make a return. He understood that it was not the practice in this court to move for a rule calling on a bishop so show cause why he did not file accounts, but why the matter should not be referred to the Master. Mr. Baron Watsou I think not. It is laid down in the books that the bishop must file accounts. Mr. Sumner contended that the bishop could not make a returns for the writ only been delivered on the 28th of August. I he goods of a beneficed clerk were not bound by the delivery of the writ, but only by the letters of sequestra- tion. Mr. Baron Watson.—But surely the bishop is bound to make a return of what has been levied. Mr. Siimner.- But the plaintiffs know all the facts, for the letters of sequestration have been issued by their nominee. The bishop has no objection to make a return but it is a great hardship that he should be called upon to make a return as often as the plaintiffs please. The Lord Chief Baron.— We cannot anticipate that this is per mature or vaxatious. The Court, without calling upon Mr. Gibbons, who appeared on the other side, directed that the rule should be made absoli ute, the return to be made in a month. LLANELLY MECHANICS' I.NSTTTI:Tg.-On Tuesday even ing last an able and interesting lecture on the Origin Use, and End of the Law" was delivered by Ben. Jon('. Esq., at the Athenaeum W. 11. Neville, Esq., presided. The lec!urer commenced with the fall of Adam, and tract d the origin of the law between the period of the fall and ti e giving of the the ten co.umandments; which formed tin- basis of all the i I:htwe s in the world, the principles of all law brfing embodied in the Commandments. After briefly sketching the progress of law from that period to the end ft the Grecian, the lecturer commented on the Roman Code, which he greatly admired for its impartiality. He next dwelt upon the origin of law in England, stating that the first witten la ws were made by Alfred the Great, who had been educated by a Welshman—the Bishop of St. David's since which period it had been such a tenacious thing that there was no getting rid of it when once in, there was no getting out. (Laughter). The trial by jury, he stated, was practised in Wales before the time of Alfred, as \\a ascertained hy the records of Howell Dda. The laws of Howell Dda formed the basis "f Magna Charta. The laws of the Normans and the feudal system were briefly sketched, and the old practice in Wales of dividing the property equally among the children, which accounts for the anomaly on many estates at the present day of a strip of land in the middle of one belonging to the landlord of another, several instances of which might be found in Carmarthenshire. The motto" Ich Dien" he had no doubt was of Welsh origin, and was the same Eich Dyn" (There's your man) which Edward said on presenting his son to the Wel-li nobles. The lecture was interspersed with several pleasing incidt ii-s and anecdotes which caused much mii tli, and though it would appear a dry subject for a lecture, it waq rendered amusing by the tact and ability of the lecturer. There was a god audience, but not many mechanics present, which is much to be regretted. The proceedings terminated with a vite of thanks to the lecturer, moved by the liev. T. Davies, and seconded by R. T. Howell, Esq., and also to the president for his kindness in taking the chair. "v"J.
I., PEMBROKESHIRE. MILFOBD HAVEN. It is worthy of remark that during the la'e severe gales, by which so many vessels have been distressed and injured, the shelter this harbour affords is such that the communication with Ireland has never been interrupted and, while the Holyhead boats have not been able to venture to sea, the Milford Haven boats have made the passage regularly, with a difference only of a few hours. ILAVERFOKDWEST.-On Monday last the distribution of the I reernen s money took place in the Shirehall, under the direction of the lrustees, when each freeman received X-2 It is nearly four years since the former distribution HAVEltrOILDivrST.-Oti Friday last a meeting was held in th: labernacle vestry room, for the purpose of forming a Young ui s Christiiii Association. The meeting was well attended by parties of all denominations -the Rev. T. U. Stamper presiding. Ultimately it was reached to form the asnoiiation, and certain gentlemen were appointed to canvass the town for members, so as to give the society vigor at start- ing. THE SMALLS The season's work on the new Lighthouse terminated on the lQth inst., when the whole of the work- ing plant was brought ashore to the yard at Solva. Though the summer was uncommonly rough, yet the work done was considerable, and unattended with the least accident to an y of the parties employed. The seventeenth course, (or about 35 feet) is now erected. Tne whole bids fair for completion in two years more. LECTURES ON TEMPEUAVCE,—Oa Monday and Tuesday evenings last, the Rev. Thomas Irving White, of London, delivered two lectures on this subject, at the Market Hall, Haverfordwest. The subject of the first lecture being How to be healthy, wealthy, and wise, or causes considered which have produced disease, poverty, and ignorance an I the subject of the second, "The sober and econorrical tht3 architects of their own fortune." Both lectures were in- teresting and instructive, and many pleasing illustrations were given of the advantages of teetotalism. The atten- dance was good, and the lectures were listened to with great atten tion. A COUPLE OF CHECH MATED THIEVES. A few days ago two tramps adroitly purloined a piece of linen check from the shop of Mr. John Owen, draper, St. David's. A pursuit was made, and the thieves apprehended about a a mile and a half from the town, on the Solva road. In pursuance of the adage of honor among thieves." the two worthies had fairly divided the goods, aud probably would, had they escaped detection, sold them at a greater sacri- fice" than fair dealing would have warranted. They were conveyed t,) the Solva Police Station, whence they were committed to Haverfordwest gaol for trial at the next Ses- sions. THE JOINT LUNATIC ASYLUM —At the next Quarter Sessions for Pembrokeshire a resolution will bo proposed, to the effect that the Secretary of State be requested to dissolve the Union now existing between the counties of Pembroke, Cardigan, and Carmarthen, for building a united asylum at Carmarthen. The question, however, has assumed a dif- ferent aspect since the last Sessions. It may be in the recollection of our readers that the Earl of Cawdor then stated, that in consequence of the refusal of the Cardigan- shire Magistrates to agree to the plans, a report had been forwarded to the Secretary of State; and he read a letter from the Secretary, stating that the whole matter was under the consideration' of the law officers of the Crown. Sir Fitzroy Kelly and Mr. Cairns have both declared it as their opinion that the county of Cardigan is justified in point of law in rejecting the plans for the erection of the joint asylum—for that the plans and estimates are expressly made subject to the approbation of the Court of Quarter Sessions, and the court may justly and legally disapprove of any plans, estimates, or contracts for the building of the asylum. They both further state that the statute provides no remedy for the absolute refusal of approbation by any court of Quarter Sessions, except by the dissolution of the union.-Tcl. graph. ROOSE AND DUNGLEDDY PETTY SESSIONS.—These ses- sions were held at the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest, before the Rev. S. T. Thomas, and William Owen, Esq. The Over- seers of Camrose charged J. W. Wright with non-payment of rates. Defendant pleaded that he is rated for Robleston I Mountain, on which there is a right of pasturage in common with the other farms on the same estate. Ordered to pa\ amount of rates 6s. 61. overseers ordered to pay costs.- William Allen was charged with selling ale within pro- hibited hours on Sunday.

Fined fid. each and costs.- The Overseas of Llanstadwell charged the South Wales Railway with non- payment of rates. Adjourned for a week. Wil.iam Why- bourne charged James Eynon with non-payment of wages as a seaman. "n"
I GLAMORGANSHIRE. THE DEATH OF MR. JOHN RICHARDSON.—The sud- den removal by death of one of our oldest and principal merchants, and of a gentleman who has filled so manv prominent offices in our Town, cannot be allowed to pass without the expression of our regret at the less of one in whom great kindness of disposition was combined with active ef industry and energy of purposes. Mr. Richard- son was returned to the Council immediately after the passing of the Reform Act, was shortly afterwaids elected an Alderman and filled the office of Mayor with great credit and hospitality. Mr. Richardson was also a Justice of the Peace and one of the oldest Trustees of the Harbour, ut which Board his practical knowledge was often found advantageous to the best interests of the port. ro the poor hej'was a liberal though unostentatious benefactor and our charictable Institutions will lose in him one of their varmest supporters. We regret the loss of such a man, und especially condole with his mourning family. Swansea Herald. APPLICATION FOR AX INJUNCTION AGAINST A RAILWAY COMPANY.—At the Court of Common Pleas, on Wednesday, Mr. Bovill moved, under the Railway and Canal Traffic Act, on behalf of the Rhymney Railway Company, for a rule calling upon the Taff Vale Railway Company to show cause why an injunction should not issue to compel them to deli- ver the complainants' traffic "n to the Rhymney Railway line, or to allow them to take it from the point of junction between the two lines. The learned coun-el stated that both lines run to Cardiff, and convey a large quantity of coal and iroii t,) the 13ute Docks for carriage b3, sea. There was a junction between the two lines, but the Taff Vale Co npanv, instead of affording all reasonable facilities for passing tr affic from one line to another in accordance with the act of parliament, refused to deliver up goods at the junction, and insisted upon carrying them 300 yards further, and charging one penny per ton for carriaife for the 300 yards. This, it was submitted, they had no right to dot, and especially to charge the penny per ton, which was as much as, according to their scale they charged fur carrying two miles and a half. The matter was one of considerable importance, as the penny per ton amounted to many hundred pounds in the year and, moreover, the Taff Vale Company had threatened to charge twopence per ton for iron. Rule granted. ,n.
BRECONSHIRE. BitF,cos.-PIGEO-; SHOOTING.—A match took place in a field near the town on Tuesday last. The entries numbered twenty, and the prizes were awarded as follows:—Mr. Downie, 1st; Mr. P. Lloyd, 2nd; and Mr. W. L Banks, 3rd. A sumptuous dinner was provided at the conclusion of the sport, at the Swan Hotel. CRICK ITOWICLL. -Last week this town was the scene of great rejoicings on the occasion of the marriage of the Rer. Augustus Brown, to Miss Davies, the only daughter of George A. A. Davies, Esq., Solicitor, Crickhowell. A dinner was given at Cwrt-y-Gollen, and a grand ball at Sy'r Benllan, Mr. Davies's residence. A display of fire I works took place in the evening.
I DEATH OF SIR JOSEPH BAILEY, BART., M P. FOR THE COUNTY OF BRECKNOCK. THIS much respected and deeply lamented Baronet died on Saturday last, at Glanubk Park, aged 75 years. His health had been gradually failing during the last few years. Of a man who occupied so very prominent and influential a position in these districts it is needless to write any long or formal account. The deceased Baronet was born in Suffolk, and among other landed estates which he possessed up to the time of his decease is the property on which he was born. At an early period of life he was associated with his uncle, the late well known Mr. Crawshay, of Cyfarthfa, in his extensive iron works. In 1811, in connection with his brother, Crawshay Bailey, Esq the present Member for the Monmouthshire Bo- roughs, he engaged in business at Nantyglo On his career there it is not necessary to dilate. His terri- torial acquisitions in the counties of Brecknock, Monmouth, Glamorgan, Hereford, and Radnor, to- gether with property in Lancashire and other counties, are a convincing proof of his success,—a success due to industry, energy, integrity, and clear- ness of judgment, rarely equalled; the latter cha- racteristic, especially, was to the very close of his life his most distinguishing feature. Few gifts are more rare than the intuitive sagacity which enabled him to look calmly and steadily forward, and, divesting practical questions, as they arose, of all extraneous matter, to form his judgment accordingly,—a judg- ment very rarely mistaken. His charities and brnevolence were widely known but we only say what is due to our neighbour's memory, when we state that many, very many, will mourn over the re- moval of one whose kindness was as remarkable for its extent as for its unobtrusiveness. We cannot conclude this brief memoir of Sir Joseph Bailey without alluding to the many excellencies of his private life. As a husband, a father, and a friend, his conduct was beyond all praise. But these vir- tues, his sound principle, and the Christian piety which guided his actions, dwell in the hearts of those who knew and loved him, and need no comment. He is succeeded in his title and estates by his grandson, now at Christ Church, Oxford, whose father, the late Mr. J oseph Bailey, represented the city of I Hereford for many years. Sir Joseph Bailey was twice married his second wife and six of his children survive him.Frona a Correspondent. BRECON.—The annual November fair was held on Wednes- day andl Thursday last, which is chiefly for the sale of butter and cheese, and for the hiring of farm servants. The sale of cheese and butter was very brisk, and they sustained good prices. The wages of farm servants fluctuated considerably, and a great number held back in expectation of having a considerable iise. There was not so large an attendance of sight-seers and visitors as on former occasions, and the only entertainment to gratify cut iosity was the feats of a great magician, with the euphonious name of Noquit." It is gratifying to report an almost total absence of those indecrnt. qu.irrels and fights, and attempts at robbery, which usually characterize those fairs.
The directors of the Crystal Palace Company, announce that they intend to recommend a dividend of 2s 6d per ordi- nary share at the approaching meeting of the proprietors. LAMENTABLE ACCIDENT.—A shocking accident occurred at Norihorpe-Blation, about seven miles from Gainsborough, on the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railvay, last week, by which the station-master, Mr. John Lewis, lost his life. The line crosses the road on the level at the place in question, and a horse and cart were standing near an open gate, leading to the rails, when a goods train from Hull came up, the noise of which affrighted the animal, and the deceased, apprehending that it would get on the line, rushed out to save it; but, before he could get across the rails, he was struck by the advancing engine and hurled to a distance of several yards He was picked np in an insen- sible state, scarcely bieathing, his body being frightfully crushed and, although medical aid was promptly obtained, he expired very shortly after the accident. It is supposed that the spectacles which the deceased wore deceived him as to the distance of the train. A FRENCH llEAR HUXT.- The inhabitants of Neuville Bose, near Rouen, were about a fortnight ago plunged into great terror by the report that fortnight ago plunged into great terror by the report that a large bear had escaped from a travelling menagerie, and was prowliag in an adjacent wood. Arming themselves with pitchforks, clubs, and scythes, the villagers went to the adjacent village of Haie de Calleville, situated at the extremity of the wood, where their children were at school, and, in spite of the remon- strances of the schoolmaster, carried them off. They re- fused to allow the children to return, and were almost afraid to leave their own houses. Things continued in this state until Saturday last, when it was resolved, after much deli- beration, that a grand battue should be made, and every man should take part in it. Out accordingly turned everybody, and the wood was surrounded. Advancing gradually, the villagers formed at last a somewhat narrow circle, when all at once the cry was raised, There i. the bear!" Immedi- ately all the brave people, except those who happened to be armed with guns, were seized with terror, and Bed in all directions, forgetful that the very purpose for which they had assembled was to kill the bear. The men with guns seeing a black animal in the brushwood fired, one after an- other, and the animal, with a melancholy howl, fell. As he remained quiet some little time, they, though not without trepidation, approached, and lo found that the much feared bear was a poor dog which had gone astray. Hoops IN A STATE OF DEVOTION.—It is difficult to ana- lyze and set forth the element of beauty on which petticoat hoops depend for their effect. That particular element, the quality which insensibly commends itself to the mind of the artist, is symmetry. We have already seen how hoops, on their second advent, were suggested by an I ?,!Ioops, on Let the fair reader put herself the question, then what would she think of a dome pushed on one side, made crok- ed, awry > How would the cupola of St. Paui's look in this puise ? Hideous, detestable Now we put it to any one, whe- ther in the ordinary walks of life this very similitude of a dome twisted out of all symmetry is not continually sugges- ted by "a hoop d lady" drawn into close propinquity to her partner in the waltz, or even in the common act of sitting down ? To the kneeling position, moreover, hoopwork is uncongenial in very high degree. The effect is most ridiculous, as all who have seen it must testify, if they speak the truth that is in them. The hoops do not lose their symmetry, indeed, each individual hoop still maintains the beauty of that most beautiful of all curves, the circle and the aggregate of hoopwook represent the tracery of a dome; but the misery is this :—you lose the notion of kneeling altogether. Not a fold, or bend, or wrinkle is there, to bespeak such attitude. The lady appears simply to have been made shorter from the knees downward; or, still more near the truth perhaps, the lady's head and bust con- vey the notion of having been struck en to a telescope slide- mot un, and squashed together like a shortened telescope! Nature, who never does things by halves, combines particu- lar features with particular loims. The same nose whose slightest soupgon of heaven-seeking aspect would be desig- nated celestial, if fixed to the countenance of a lady standing five feet three, would look pert and vixen-like if made the appendage to a stumpy person less tall by the length of the tibia and Jibula.—Dublin University ilaga- fM for November, To Sir J. Drummond, Bart.. Chairman of the Fishing Club. SIR,-We call yotir attention at the harsh measures of the Club to force the Act for five months, a thing which lias not since the Act was passed. You are aware that there has not been a river in England or Scotland been pre- served five months, and all the principal salmon fisheries are preserved only three months and few days. You are aware that this county is nut a may) ii fictu ring county, and it is impossible for those men to find employment at the present season of the year. They are willing to submit to the general law of England, and why should the law be in force more than Teifi that river is only three months and few days. For to presei ve the Towy your attention should be called for the season of the river. There is rivers clo-ed in August and open on the 12th of November, and otheig close October and open on the 15th of January, anJ others close on the 15th of September and open on the first of January but those fence mon'hs do not answer the salmon season of the river Towy, owing to the lateness of the season. It was on the 17th of April the first se"i¡¡ was taken this season. The best salmon seen in the Towy is till the end of December. Tne Towy salmon will not cure till November, because to richness of the salmon. We hope that those things will be considered by the Fishing Club, and the Fishermen will go hand in hand with the aswciation to preserve our rivers. We beg that the present force will be withdrawn till the first of January. The present law do effect indirect on we the Tradesmen of thia neighbourhood by depriving so many of their employment so long time. It was alluded in writing that no fishing would be carried on after the above time. D. WILLIAMS. Carmarthen. 1. DAYlES.' J. DAVIES.

CARMARTHEN POLICH COURT.-At the Town Hall, on Monday last, before H. Norton, Esq (mayor), E. H. Stacey, Esq., and J. Hughes, Esq. David Jones was charged with drunkenness. P.C Woozley stated that on Saturday evening at eight o'clock the defendant wae in Spilman-street, very drunk, creating a disturbance, and insulting the people w ho were passing. He refused to go home, and in answer to the expostulations of the policemen he only replied, Go to L, Ile was taken into custody, and at once began to struggle, until they fell to the ground. Woozley failed to take him to the sta'ion-house without assistance, The defendant, who has many times previously been convicted in this court, and, in default of paying the nn«. Sent to prison, was on this occasion only fined 5s. and costs.—John Janice was charged with obstructing (he high- way. P.S. Brynon proved that on the 17th instant the defendant's cart was in Little Bridge-street, and that it was an obstruction.

Tom BROWN'S SCHOOL DAYS."—On Wednesday evening last the third of a series of lectures in connection with the Carmarthen Literary and Scientific Institution was delivered in the Public Rooms, by Mr. Evan Davies, M.A principal of the Normal College at Swansea. We have said a lecture was delivered," simply because the words are used in the programme, for Mr. Davies simply read a few passages from iom Brown's School Days," with a few introductory re- tnarks relative to the author, who he said was the Rev. Mr. Hughes, a clergyman and boxing master at the Peoples Col- lege, and brother to the Tom Brown" of the book. He also related an incident of the rev. gentleman's skill with the gloves, in which he encouraged a hesitating mechanic pupil, without much self-confidence, while he floored a self- conceited and pretentious fellow who stood up against him. The passages selected were by no means the best adapted to the occasion, nor did they illustrate the peculiarities of the work. Mr. Davies also read carelessly and in a low tone of Voice. The lecturer apologized for "the entertainment," 6tating that he was not aware so much was required of him as he found was the case on his arrival in the town. Mr. Hughes occupied the chair. The audience not so large as on previous occasions. We regret to announce in this day's obituary the demise of Lieutenant Colonel Philipps, commanding Her Majesty's 89th Regiment at Deesa, Bombay Presidency. This lamented officer entered the service as Ensign in the 32nd Foot in July 1842, became Lieutenant in 1845, and soon after ex- changed into the 89th, in which corps he obtained his com- pany in 1849. He served with his regiment in the Crimea, for which he received a medal and clasp; on his return he held the appointment of Instructor of Musketry to the Provisional Battalion at Limerick until he obtained his majority iu September, 1856. He proceeded to India in No- vember, 1857, to rejoin his regiment, which had just arri ved there from the Cape. In May last he succeeded to the Lieutenant Colonelcy but his health unhappily rUe- cumbing under the baneful influence of the intense heat of a season that has proved fatal to so many a brave soldier, he was ordered to England on medical certificate, and expired the day after his embarkation. LECTURE ON TEETOTALIsM.-On Thursday evening Mrs1 heobald delivered the first of two lectures on Teetotalism, in the Public Rooms, in connection with the Carmarthen Teetotal Society, which is now in a flourishing state. The large room was well filled, notwithstanding the charge for admission. The Venerable Archdeacon Bevan presided, and was supported by the Rt v. A. Roberts, curate of St. Peter's, and the Rev. D. R. Jenkins, curate of St. David's. The chairman very biicily introduced Mrs. Theobald, who spoke at great length on the necessity for entire abstinence irom all intoxicating drinks. Her voice, although a little husky, is loud and flexible. As she warmed with her subiec t tihe grew eloquent and pathetic; walked to and fro on the platforrm, and dramatised her sketches from life of which the oration was principally composed. The audience ap- peared highly pleased, and frequently applauded the fair =er, who will agam appear iu the Public Rooms this evening undei the presidency of J. L. Philipps, Esq., of Bolahaul, affording another opportunity to the inhabitants of hearing an eloquent and energetic female lecturer. MORTIMER agaiist THE SOUTH WALES RAILWAY COM- PANY.—This case which was postponed a fortnight ago was to have been heard this week, but it has been again ad- journed until next term. LLANSTEPHAN.—A temperance meeting was held at the National School-room, on the evening of the 17th ult. Col. Sir James Hamilton, Bart., kindly presided, and opened the meeting with some very appropriate remarks, stating how needful and good a cause, he, with many others, had as- sembled to advocate. The esteemed chairman spoke at length on the baneful and injurious effects of the excessive use of ardent spirits; the injury inflicted hy them on the mass of the people the pleasure and satisfaction with which he regarded the large and respectful audience there assem- bled for the inauguration of a society which had for its object the reforming of the drunkard-the good of its members and the neighbourhood generally, and the inculcation of sober and good habits among those who now neglect themselves. He expressed a hope that at the next meeting at which it might be his privilege, .(for lie considered it a privilege to preside,) would be held within the walls of the ancient Castle of Llanstephan, the present accommodation being in- sufficient; many being unable to gain admission into the densely crowded room. He concluded by wishing the so- ciety much success, and called upon the Rev. Thomas Thomas, of Landore, to address the meeting in Welsh, and resumed his seat amid the loud cheers of all present. The Rev. T. Thomas addressed the meeting in an interesting manner, showing the folly and danger of trifling with the intoxicating cup, and advancing powerful facts and argu- ments which tended to expose the injurious ingredients contained in all alcoholic beverages, with the alluring affects they have upon the multitude. Throughout his address he displayed a great amount of energy, and what the Welsh term hwyl, which riveted the attention of the Welsh part of the audience. J he deputation for the Northern Temper- ance League, Thomas Irving White, Esq., next addressed the meeting in English in a most able and interesting man- ner. The ready wit and pointed remarks of Mr. White with his intereStiLg anecdotes and happy mode of telling them, did not fail to reach the understanding of all present, the majority being Welsh, and the remarks made by him with facts produced, of comfort obtained through economy and sobriety, had, and will leave their effects upon his hearers. A few anthems, &c. were sung during intervals, and the proceedings were brought to a close by singing the National Anthem. Ten persons took the pledge. The Llanstephnn Total Abstinence Society, though commenced on the 24th of August last, now numbers no less than seventy-three mem- bers.— Communicated, LLANDILO.—THE CHURCH ORGAN.—This noble instru- ment, after being used for about fourteen months and during that time kept in good tune and repair, notwith- standing several unfavourable circumstances, was last week inspected and tuned by the maker, Mr. It. Postill, of York. On Sunday last it was performed upon by the organist, Dr. Wastfield, to the great admiration of the congregation, whose admiration of the voluntaries both morning and evening have been frequently expressed. LLANDILO.—FAIRFACH FAIR.—This annual cattle fair was held on Monday last in a field adjoining Fairfach farm. A very good supply of cattle was shown, but for which there was little demand owing to very few dealers being in attendance. A few sales were ejected during the day at re- duced rates since last fair. On the following day the pig fair was held, when there was a very large stock of fat pig, shown, for which there was a good demand at advancingb rates. LLANELLY.-On Friday last Mr. Jonrs. of Swansea gave an entertainment at the Athenaum, entitled A Budget of Burlesque." Dr. Denning presided at the pianoforte, and his performance has been pronounced by those present as very superior. The sinking also of Mr. Jonts was excel- lent. The attendance was small, which may partly be tributed to the high price of admission. LLANELLY MONTHLY SALE OF CATTLE.—In the absence Of any cattle fairs here except once or twice a-year, a monthly sale of cattle, such as has been establised by the enterprise of Mr. Douglass in Llanelly Park, seems a desi- deratum to the farmers and butchers of tha neighbourhood, and it is hoped the success of the first sale will continue, and that they will become permanent 011 Thursday, the 18th inst., a sale was held, when there were 44 fat and store cattle, 10 horses and ponies, about 250 sheep, 21 fat pigs, 4 coops of turkeys, a number of agricultural imple- ments, 12 tons of potatoes, 10 tons of mangolds, and 19 tons of Swedes ottered for competition. The sale was well attended and the several lots realized good market prices. LLANELLZ ATHENJTCUM.—On Monday night last an en- tertainment was given at the Athenaeum, under the patronage of Messrs. Neville, bv Mr. HamMing, Wizard of the North, for the benefit of the sufferers by the Cae Colliery accident. The attendance was good, and about X20 was realized for the benevolent object. LLANELLY POLICB.—On Wednesday last, before W. H. Nevill, Esq. Thomas Groves, basket-maker, was fined 58, and costs for being drunk and disorderly. LLANELLY PETTY SESSIONS were held on Wednesday, before J. H. Hees and Col. Stepney. David Evans, LIanoll, was charged with assaulting Daniel Jones, Pont3-beren, on the 15th instant. Allowed to settle out of court. Daniel Davies, Llanelly, aged 16 years, was charged with 'I'hoi.? on the 17 t h Alr. T h omit,?, assaulting Samuel E. Thomas, on the 17th. Mr. Thomas, Water-street, the complainant's father, stated that lie did not wish to press the charge against the defendant, but he was so frequently in the habit of assaulting his son that he thought proper to bring it before their worships, that he might be prevented from continuing his annoyances. The defendant was severely reprimanded, and told if brought before the bench again they would inflict a penalty. Ht) was dismissed on payment of costs.- William Prosper, Llandebie, was fined 20s. and costs on the complaint of Inspector Edwards, of the Llanelly and Llandilo Railway, for being drunk and abusivs to passengers on the 4th 111"" -Herter Rees, Grogwyn, Llanddarog, was fined 20s. and costs on the complaint of P.C. Price, for driving furiously without rains. John Morgans, Globe, Bury Port, was fined 20s. and costs for selling beer after legal hours on Saturday last. THE EXTRAORDINARY CHARGE OF MURDER. In the month of August, 182.), four agricultural servants, not one of whom bad reached manhood, met together in the yard of Blaendynfich farm, in the parish of Mothvei. They were there by accident. John Price and David Samuel had gone from a neighbouring farm, the forme- according to his own statement to remain during the night, and the latter to visit a servant-maid whom he wa- courting." It is said that Samuel had a rival, or fancied thit he had, and when he saw Lewis Williams and a lad named Iaac loitering about the place where he expected to see the young woman, he accosted them, and they quarrelled Having exhausted words, and worked themselves into a rage, Williams, Isaac, and Samuel went into an adjoining field and fought. Price, hearing the fight, called up hit- friend Jones. & on both of them going to the field the struggle had ceased, but they commenced fighting again—Williams and Isaac against Samuel. As they this time approached Samuel, Isaac shouted. "0, God, he has got a knife in hi, hand," and retreated, but Samuel struck him with a knife, and then ran away. Williams immediately followed and as he was about to put his hand on his shoulder. Samuel turned round, and with "a swinging blow" struck Williams on the neck, severing an artery from which the blood gushed out, and death was instantly produced. The wound Isaac received was small, and he recovered and lived until about three years ago. An inquest was held on the body of Williams, and a verdict of "Wilful Murder" recor d ed a,- recorded against David Samuel, who absconded and was not again heard of by the authorities until a few weeks ago, when a man called David Thomas Price was apprehended at Fleur de lys, near Newport, Monmouthshire, and brought before the magistrates at Newp rt under the circumstances which we stated last week. As the case excites considerable interest, we have gleaned a few parti- culars relative to it. In the Monmouthshire Merlin we read One 01 the mos' singular charges of murder to be found in criminal annals was brought against a man who gave his mme as David Thomas Price, at the Police Court, on Saturday. The object of bringing the prisoner up was not explained, as no particulars whatever were entered into, and the Superinten- dent of of the County Police asked only that he lUighl be remanded. Three times the man had to undergo this pro- cess, apparently without purpose and without reason, and should he be innocent of the crime laid to his charge—and until he is proved guilty he ought, by the laws (Jf bi country, to be treated as innocent—he has crrtainly been subjected to no small injustice. He has been brought pro- minently before the public, county policemen -by no means the wisest or most sensible of their order—have followed him backwards and forwards to the cell in shoals, and when he was actually in the presence of the magistrates, it was found that nothing was wanted with him, except to send him back. The police seemed confused at the weight of the responsibility which they fancied rested on them, an(! wandered round the accused with open mouths and wondering looks, as if a wild animal were before them. We have no doubt they are responsible for the circum- locutory proceedings to which we have referred, as it is impossible to suppose the experienced and able as- sistant to the magistrates' clerk can have been a party to them. With regard to the circumstances attending the charge itself, very little appears to be known to the authoriiic-s. The county police know absolutely nothing about the case, and consequently from them no information can be gleaned They shake their heads in bewilderment in reply to en- quiries, put on mysterious looks, pull up their stocks, bring out a large blue or yellow cotton pocket hand- kerchief, with which they wipe their foreheads, and mutter something about its being a werry rum set out- no gammon about that. Having delivered themselves of this incomprehensible news, they put their hands in their yawning pockets, and whistle wait for the wacgon." From enquiries made in the place where the accused has been residing and elsewhere, and it must be understood that the portion of it we subjoin rests at present on report alone. For about twenty-nine or thirty years subsequent to the above occurrence, a man named David Thomas Price, resided at Fleur-de lys, in this county. About three or four years ago he went to live at Bedwas, and there he remained until last Friday. A shopkeeper is said to have pressed him to attend church or chapel, but the reply Price invariably made was, "I cannot-l have a load on my mind which prevents me," The tradesman urged him to relieve himself by imparting his secret, and after exacting a pro- mise of secrecy, Price told the shopkeeper a tale which naturally greatly surprised the latter. Price was employed by Mr T, P. Price, of this town, and through events into which we need not enter, his earnings became irregular, and he got into debt, among ethers to the shopkeeper spoken of. Thu man pressed for his money, and being unable to get it, threatened to divulge the secret Price had revealed to him. Soon afterwards he fulfilled the threat, and gave such information to the Carmarthenshire police as led to the apprehension of the accused. Price, or Thomas, has now been married twenty-seven years, and has two sons grown up to manhood. His wife knew nothing of any of the occurrences described till the police took her husband away. Her grief and alarm were of course very great, and she is now soliciting small subscriptions to enable her to obtain legal assistance. The prisoner is a grey-headed man, apparently between 50 and 60 years of age. He seemed quite composed when before the magistrates, and did not utter a word. Since the above was in type we have been informed that the youth who was stabbed, as above stated, died about three years ago. The accused has been brought before the magistrates at Carmarthen, and remanded, no pal ticulars having been gone into." The Star of Gwcnt says that from the time of the murder in August, 1825, the police failed to find f.ny trace of him un- til last wet k, when a man who formerly knew all the parties, happened to be on business at Fleur-de-Lys. Here he saw the prisoner, anddeclaied him to be no other than Price, who committed the murder described. Price is now a grey-haired man, and his history for the last thirty years, during which he has resided in Mon- mouthshire (and almost all the time at the same spot), has been of the most creditable character. He first entered the service of Thomas Powell, Esq., under Mr. T. Wil- liams, at the Gellygaer colliery, as pit carpenter, some twenty-five years ago. From that period, for twenty years or more, he was connected with the Butteryhatch, Gelly- groes, and Bryn pits, and during all that time he resided in Morgan Thomas's row, at Fleur-de-Lys, near Pontaber- pengam, situated in the Rhymney Valley. Some five years ago he became lessee of the Bedwas colliery, from the pro- prietor, Dr. Davies, of Bedwas. He opened the pit, worked it, and afterwards sold it to Messrs. T. P. Price, retaining an interest in it, however, and also the management of it. Some twenty-flve years ago he married a very respectable woman. He was always a careful man, of sober habits, and he saved money, For the last five years he was resident at Bedwas, in a house of his own, enjoying We respect and esteem of his neighbours. His character has always stood high-so high that few of the neighbours can believe that the charge now brought against him is well ounded. This statement was subsequently modified by the receipt of additional information, and our contemporary says, that at the coroner's inquest a verdict of •' Wilful Murder" was recorded against David Samuel, who soon afterwards ap- peared in Monmouthshire, and has ever since been working in the mines of this county under the name of David Thomas Price. A short time since he was recognised by an old woman who had previously known him, and on her meniiouing the circumstance to him he begged her to say nothing about it. She, however, communicatcd the intel- ligence to other persons, and it at length came to the know- ledge of the police." These statements published in the newspapers of the district must be taken for what they arc worth. We have ourselves made inquiries, and almost every story differs frequently in some material point. There can however be no doubt that the man who is in custody has conducted himself with propriety for some years, from the fact that he is a parish constable, a member of a reli- gious denomination, and in "good circumsiances." From some cause or other he has been suspected for a long while I'ast, and about twelve months ago it was rumoured that he was in custody. The immed'ate cause of his apprehension is not accurately known, but the most probable story is one that we have heard from the place where the prisoner lived. We arc told that three men were in a public-house, and one of them who was lounging alone seemed at last to fall asleep. He was, however, wide awake, and beard one of the men whisper iu confidence to his friend that it was in his power to hang the man who called himself David Thomas Price, whose real name was David Samuel, for having mur- dered a man in Carmarthenshire thirty years ago. They con- tinued to talk over this revelation for some time, and then left. Directly afterwards the eavesdropper took his de- parture, and communicatcd what he had heard to a poli. e- man, who said he knew the prisoner well, having worked with him. It was this officer who communicated with the authorities. On Saturday the prisoner was brought up under remand in the County Gaol, before Col. Sir J. J. Hamilton, Bart., Capt. David Davies, Dr. Lawrence, It. Jennings, Esq, J. Lloyd Price, Esq., and D. J. B. Edwardes, Esq. The pri- 180rwr who stood at the side of the gaoler, is a man about five feet six inches high, with a slight stoop in his shoulders peculiar to certain classes of manual labourers. He is up- wards of fifty years of age, with a head thinly covered with iron grey hair, which falls in straight locks over a wide but not lofty forehead. His face is broad, pock-marked, and of a dark slate colour, with small, flat, greyish whiskers. Dark eyes deeply set in contracted brows give the counten- ance a stern but not altogether a forbidding Jook. He was attired in a dark surtout, which hung loosely on his person. His neck-tie and vest were concealed by a rea ana oiac* scarf under the coat collar, brought closely to the chin, with the long ends falling carelessly over the chest. Mr. Parry, of Carmarthen, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Owen, of Pontypool for the prisoner, who main- tained strict silence throughout the examination. John Price examined: I am a carpenter, living at the village and parish of Machan, in the county of Monmouth. I was examined on a coroner's inquest held on the body of Lewis Williams about thirty-three or thirty-four years ago, and ,lien I ivas about fiftee,-i years of age. Lewis Wil- liams was then a servant at Llettyevan-ddu, in the parish of Mothvey, in the county of Carmarthen. I resided there at the same time, being related to the family. I remember a person named David being a senant there at the sa-ne time, and he was courting a servant girl at Blaendynfich. I and David went one night to Blaendynfich, and I was to s leep with John Jones, a seivant man there. I turned into the cart house, and David stood opposite; and Lewis Williams and a servant named Isaac went into a field. Lewis Williams had come from Waunhir, but I do not IC- coliect where Isaac lived. When I was outside the cart- house, and hearing a noise as of persons fighting in the field, I went to John Jones, the servant at Blaendynfich, to tell him the boys were fighting. I called him out of bed, and he came with me immediately, and we went into t!ie field, where I saw two persons standing and one sitting. I am not certain he was sitting. Isaac I mean. David, and Lewis Williams were the persons standing. After we got up they commenced fighting. Lewis Williams and Isaac were going to attack David, but Isaac said, Oh, God, he has got a knife in his hand," and with that he struck Lewis Williams in the neck. Isaac, John Jones, and myself went down to Blaendynfich to call Mr. Lewis Thomas, the master ot tl;e house. Mr. Thomas earle down from bed, and accompanied us to the field, where we saw Lewis Williams, wlo was dead, but David had disap- peared. About ten minutes or quarter of an hour had elapsed from the time we left the field to the time we re- turned with Mr. Thomas. The only persons we left in the field when we went for Mr. Thomas were David, and Lenis Williams. The distance from Llettywanddu to Blaendyn- fich was three fields breadth. David and I lived togethei, and worked on the same farm about one year. I am not sure how long exactly. I do not know where David came from. I have not seen him since. I cannot say whetinr David is present. Mr. Parry-Can you see any one like David in this room ? Mr. Owen—I object to that question. Mr. Lloyd Price-We may point out the prisoner to the witness and ak him whetner he has ster) him before or not. Mr. Owen—With submission, I think not; the witness has looked round the room and Tailed to recognise in the prisoner the David Samuel who he says stabbed Lewi3 Williams. Mr. Parry- Would you know the man if yon saw him ? Witness—It is so long ago that I am not sure I should know him. Mr. Parry—Look round can you see him ? Witness—No I cannot. Mr. Parry- Very well; did you see Isaac strike Daniel ? Witness—No I did not. Lewis Williams went towards David as if to strike him. I saw no knife, but David turned rojnd and struck him. The corpse was taken t > Waunhir. I saw the neck of the deceased. It was cut I do not remember anything about the collar or necktie. The cut was as if made by a knife. I had known Lewis Williams for years, and he was in good health. He was about 20 years of age. Mr. Lloyd Price—Have you seen the prisoner before this day ? Mr. Owen-I must again object. Mr. Lloyd Price-D¡¡n't interrupt me. Sir J. Hamilton—Certainly not, for the question is a proper one. Dr. Lawrence—I must also object to the question, for I do not think the prisoner should be pointed out to the witness as David Samuel, and that he should then be asked whether he knows him or not. Mr. Owen—Then, the bench, with the exception of Dr. Lawrence, say I have no right to object ? Sir J. Hamilton-You have a right to object, but your objection is overrated. Mr. Owen-I hope the clerk will take a note of m objection. Mr. Price—Look at the prisoner, and tell me have you ever seen him before ? Witness (with his eyes fixed on the prisoner) —No I do not remember ever having seen him in any place before. Mr. Price-Are you acquainted with the two men who sit near Mr. Owen, and who are represented to be the prisoner's friends ? Mr. Owen—I do not understand the question. Mr. Price-But I do, knowing the facts of the case. Witness—I do not know either of them. Mr. Parry-You had a conversation with me in my office yesterday evening ? Mr. Owen-I must object to that which cannot under any circumstance be evidence. Mr. Parry-Did you not tell mc- Mr. Owen-Are you going to cross-examine your own witness ? Air. Parry—An unwilling, a reluctant witness. I ask, did you not tell me that David Samuel was a short, stout man, with a broad face, marked with small pox ? Mr: Owen-It is thirty-three years since the witness saw David Saniuel, who was then only nineteen years old. Witness-Yes; I did say so. r, "arry Describe David Samuel to the magistrates ? Witness-To the best of my recollection, the voung man David Samuel, to whom I have referred, was rather short, stotit, broad-faced, and marked with the small pox. John Jones examined I am a gardener, and reside at THToennililys Lodge, Llandingat. I lived with Mr. Lewis Tho- mas, of Blaenoynfich I do not know how long. I am now y-one years of age, and was then seventeen or eighteen. I remember John Price, the last witness, calling me up one ni:¿ht from bed when I was at Blaendynfich. In consequence of what he told me I went into the opening of !I. field close y* I saw some persons there One was Lewis ?WrHl.ams, who was killed. Another was named Isaac. I do not remember his surname. The other person we called David Samuel, living a servant at Llettyevanddu. I asked them what they were about, and what was the noise. David Samuel answered they had beaten him, or wanted to beat him I do not remember which. A cha!- lenge passed between them. Isaac said to David he would try him again. They approached each other and I have some recollection that Isaac said, 0 God, he has a knife in his hand." I did not see the knife. Isaac turned his back and went off. I did not see him struck, but I saw a cut on his back soon afterwards. Lewis Williams said nothing, but ran after David, and was gotag to lay hold of of him. I cannot say that he touched him as it was rather dark. David turned round and struck Lewis Williams on the neck. We heard the blood flowing from him as from a teakettle. It was too dark to see it. John Price, and I went for Mr. Lewis Thomas, of Blaendynfich. He did not come at once, and we went for Mr. Lewis, Llettyewanddu. I and others returned to the field, in the coarse of half or three quarters of an hour. When I left the field to call Mr. Thomas, David Samuel and L-iwis Williams thre there alone. Lewis Williams was there alone when I returned. He was then dead. The corpse was taken to Waunhir, and I saw a cut on the neck. It was on the left .de, and I thought it was ma,le by a knife, as a knife had been spoken of. I noticed the deceased's clothes, and saw a cut through the collar of the coat and waistcoat opposite the cut on the lie. k. The clothes were covered with blood. I knew Lewis Williams for a year before this occurrence, and he appeared a healthy man. This happened in the beginning of August, 1825 or 1826. I think it was in 1825. L do not remember the day of the month. I had known David Samuel from the November preceeding. He lived three fields breadth from me. I am not sure of his age, but I think he was from 19 to 20 years of age. I have not seen him since. He was short, and stout about the hips and thick about the legs. I cannot describe his face. Mr. Parry-Do you know him ? Witness-No; I do not. Mr. Parry-Do you see any one in the room like htm ? Witness (closely inspecting every one present)— No, I do not notice any person here resembling him Mr. Parry-You cannot. ? Witne,s-It is so long since. Mr. Parry—What is become of Isaac ? Witness-I have not sern him for many years. Mr. Lelvis Ihomas, Mr. Lewis Llettywanddu, Mr. Williams, the surgeon of Llandovery, and Mr. Price, the coroner, are all dead. Mr. Price-Look at the prisoner, and tell me do you know him ? Witness (after looking for several seconds in the prisoner's face)—No I do not Mr. Price-Perhaps you cannot see him properly where t.e stands; let the prisoner come out to the light. The prisoner was then placed fronting the window with a glare of light on hi< face, and looking direct into the ryes of the witness confronted him resolutely, without faltering, or the slightest change of countenance. Mr. Price-Now that you see him fully, do you know the prisoner ? Witness—No I do not, he is a perfect stranger to me. Mr. Parry—This is a very seriom charRe-no less than that of murder perpetrated thirty-three years ago, and it must be obvious that the evidence cannot be completed at once. We have gone so far as to prove that a murder was committed on the 6th of August, 1825, by a person of the name of David Samuel and the question now is whether the priiotier, who has assumed another name, is the man. I have not yet been able to prove that, but I have reason to believe that he will be identified by two witnesses who were subpoenaed to give evidence to-day, and to whom Sergeant Scurry gave sufficient money to pay their fare by train, but they have not obeyed the summons, and I have now to ask for a further remand. Mr. Owen—The prisoner has been remanded twice or thrice, and now, that you fail to identify him, you ask for a further remand. Remember, gentlemen, that the transaction it is sought to bring home to the prisoner took place thirty-three years ago, and that the only persons who can possibly prove the identity of the prisoner with D4,il Samuel have to-day been examined. and they positively assert that so far as they know the prisoner is not the man- they do not know him he is a stranger to them. However should you, as you have the power, remand him, I hope you will accept bail for his appearance, as he is a most re- spectable man, of excellent character, and can obtain security to any amount. P.S. David Scurry was then called, and proved the service of a summons on Mary Davies, wife of DaviJ Davies, sawyer, and that he gave her 5s. to pay her fare to Carmarthen. The magistrates having consulted for a few minutes re- solved to remand the prisoner for a week, and refused to accept bail; the prisoner was accordingly remanded until Saturday next. I
