Val-Y very lit"le from the telegrams which we published last It was a great and sanguinary battle, in which Nearly 400,000 men were engaged. Athough the Auslnans defeated, thpy fought bravely and stubbornly, and \ht;;n they saw that the fortunes of the day were against *hem, they retreated with a b'-ld, steady front to the foe. The Allied Armies were not tcketi by surprise. Ail the strong positions were known to the Emperor, v bo, it is saiu, "btailled Lis iufci-niatit-ri from several French officers who tended in balloons and witne^.ed the movements of the eiJnity. AH the accounts of the battle agree iu stating- t'ia^ *'le Allies displayed marvellous courage, and were never toore brilliant. It is not probable Ihat we shall ever obt-lill all accurate statement of the losses on both sides. The ear- hage Was most fearful. According to the official reports, the French loss amounted to 12,000 men killd and wounded, ^hile tlie Austrians had only 9,000 killed and wounded. ■in, the Austrian Riflemen hit 720 French officers, where- of 120 were shot dead, while the French succeeded in killing 'l1ù wounding only 280 Austrian officers. The Sardinims abo bad .5,000 put !Wi'S dr: c())illlat. These figures are SGp- ped to be too low, and the total loss is variourly estimated tU fvotu 40,000 to 60,000 men, It is reported that the Aus- tr*uns, not disheartened by defeat, are impatient t > retrieve tùeir character, and another great battle is expected.

On Friday there was a fair average number of store cattle on sale, the largest beasts in ,zood condition sold readily at late, prices, but inferior auim ils were not much looked for. Several cows with calves were offered, but being late in season for dairy purposes few changed hands. There was an average supply of fat beasts, with a limited demand. A drove of about 70 yearling Irish heifers were also exposed for sate—.j? 10s. each were asked. Fat sheep were in good supply, and also fat lambs, but little was done except at low rates; There was rather a large muster of horses, mostly of very inferior quality, but we nonced a few good hacks, which were freely enquired alter, and sold from £ 30 to £ 10 each. The pig fair on Saturday was held at Pontdules there was a good supply, and fair demand, at a shade lower. Carmarthen July fair will be he,d on Monday next in Prior* y-street, where a large numberSof stock is expected. HARVEST PROSPECTS.—The genial rain on Saturday and Sunday evenings last has greatly improved the crops of all kinds in toe neglibourhood". The wheat appears strong and heavy under the influence of the present weather. A, ver)- early corn liarvest is expected.

LLANELLY LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. An adjourned meeting was held on Saturday last. The members present were Messrs. B. Jones Chairman, W. H. Nevill, D. Evang, W. Thomas, W. liosser, J. George. R. Harries, R. T. Howell, and R. B. Jones. The expediency of making a Water rate instead of a sp. cial District rate was cnnsidered.-The Clerk presented hi report and a statement of the persons already supplied with water was laid on the table. The following coPy of the report of the Cl-rk and Sur- veyor to the Boitid in reference to making a water rate was read. 2nd July, 1859. Gentlemen, — In compliance with the resolution of the Board of the 25th of June last, that we should offer such information as we could collect relative to the making of a water rate, we beg to lay the result of our ^proceedings before you. In regard to the application of the Statutory provision on this subject, it appears by sections 75 and M of the l'ub- lie Health Act that the following steps may be taken "I. Under the former section, that the Local Board may provide their district with such a supply of water as may be proper and suiffcient for the purposes of that Act and for. orivate use to the extent required by the Act, and "II. Under sec. 03, That so long as any premises are supplied with water for the following purposes-viz. domes- tic use, cleanliness or drainage, a water rate is required to be levied on the occupier, and such rate must be made on the net annual value of the premises, ascertained as required by sec. 55 of the Local Government Act, the purport of which section also is that, a Water rate shall be made and levied upon the occupier of tho property assessed to the last poor rate. When the premises are tirilt,r CIO, or let to weekly tenants, the o vner is to be rated instead of the occupier, and in that event there is a reduction allowed of not less than two-thirds nor more than four-filths from the annual value. Where the reduced estimate is on occupied or un- occupied tenements the assessment is one-half. The 75th section states that if any house is without a proper supply of water, and such supply can be furnished at not exceeding two-pence per week, the owner, on notice given to him, shall, under section 51 of the Local Govern- ment Act, be charged therewith, and the expenses recovered from him as Private Improvement Expenses." It seems, by section 55 of the Local Government Act, that composition with owners of cottages is now lepealed. By section 9G of the Public Health Act the Board may srill reduce or remit payment of any rates on account of poverty. By section 03 of the Public Health Act, houses supplied by one common pipe shall be charged in the same manner as if each house was supplied by a separate pipe and by section 89 of the Public Health Act no rate is to be charged while the pre- mises are unojeupied, and by this section the Board may divide the District or any Street, and make a separate as- sessment on any such part; for instance the Board may divide all the houses in the District into as many Districts as may be (lecriied reasonable. In regard to Water supply for trading or manufacturing purposes, the supply is to be on such terms as may b1 agreed on by the Board and 'he persons desirous of b-iog supplied and these terms must be clearly set out in writing in the form of a regular contract. It seems also, so far as the payment of the old Loan is concerned, that a Special District rate must he made. but that any new loan he contracted for on the security of the General District Rate. This is the expressed opinion of Mr, Lumley (see paue 291 of his work, note (i.) and see also Mr. Torn Taylor's letter dated 15th February, 1859, to the same elfect. It is true that the unking of a Water Rate will in effect supersede the levying of a Special District R-ite, but still the present security being on that rate alone, iu case of any failure in the Water Rate, the Special District Rate is the ultimate resource in paying off the principal and intercst due under the old loan. The rccent loan of £ 4,000 is contracted on the security of the General District Rate, the first instalment of which, amounting to 1260 4s., will j not become due until the 2(3th of Masch next. Having now stated all the lejal points that occur to us in relation to the making of a Water Rate, we beg to sub- mit for your consideration a statement of persons now sup- plied with water, showing various particulars which may perhaps sen j as a basis for a Water Rate. We may add in j conclusion that a considerable revenue, besides what is derived from shipping, may be made by levying a compul- sory Water Rate of two pence per week on each house on the owners of cottage property Assuming that, there are ( f houses Under 1;5, 1.110; of E-5, 375; of £ 0, 84; of X7, 80 of £ 8, 97 of X9, 18; of £ 10, 84;—Total, 1848 a rate of that kind on that number of houses would amount atinu- ally to a large sum, of £ S00 16s.. or at a Id. £ 100 8J. it is obvious that practically to carry out such a procedure would require a very considerable outlay in the first in- stance, which outlay is recoverable at onco from the owners by a Private Improvement Rate." "(Signed) "FRED. L. BROWN, Clerk. "EDWARD BAGOT, Surveyor." After discussion, which lasted at least two hours, on the motion of Mr, It B, Jones, secoudei by Mr. Rosser, it was resolved that a Water Rate of one shilling in the pound he made and levied within the District of Llanelly, in accordance with the 93rd Section of the Pub- lic Health Act, for the year ending 5th of July, 1859. It was also resolved that the Surveyor be authorised to arrange with each party in the District for the payment for water supplied for the purposes of trade for the above year of assessment, contingent upon the approval of the Board, aucLto make an ass ssment accordingly. lhe petitions for conduits produced at the last meeting of the Board were again brought up, and referred to the Surveyor to carry out where he thinks necessary for the supply of the District; and he is to report to the next Board any special cases which he cannot or does not deem requisite to supply. LLANELLY.—THUNDER STORM.—Another heavy thunder- storm broke over this, town on Saturday evening last accompanied with heavy rain and rapid and vivid na-ihea of lightuing.

Ihe lessee of the tolls appeared for the gate-keeper, and contended that this vehicle could not come under the 4d. rate is a waggon, wain, cart, or any such other carriage, inasmuch as this vehicle is built on springs, has a seat with a hick to it for the driver, and a step affixed to the shaft for mounting,and although but roughly painted, was in its construction as much like a White-chapel cart as anything could be, and consequently muat come under the 6d. rate of toll.

The Decree on the dissolution of the Marriage was therefore pronounced in the above terms, with costs against the defendant. ARERMKURIC;, NEAR LAMPETER.

The wife and three children were at present receiving relief to Lhe amount of 5s. 8jd. per week, but the complainant stated that the officers of the township and the ves'ry had no wish to punish the defendant, but as the family lived "ut of the parish, their wish was to cause them to live in it, so that the parishioners might do something for them, and put the children to herd cattle, while the father could be employed in bis own trade from house to house over the parish. The defendant said he was obliged to go to Tre- castle, Breconshire, to get work by the piece, as the custom of this country was to work a whole day, which he was un- able to do in consequence of illness. All be could do foi, I;i, family he did. P.C. Evau Davies, who had been at Tre castle to apprehend him, said he made some inquiries of the police at Trecastle, who said he was a very sober man, and was frequently ill. The Bench inquired if the defendant would comply with the request of the officers aud vestry o! the township to which his family were chargeable, and as he replir-d in the affirmative, he was discharged, and cautioned not to repeat the olfeuce. —Richard Williams, Ty'iiyfroii. farm servant, was charged by P.C. Williams with furiously driving two houses drawing a cart, near the south gate, Aberystwith, on the 1st of June last, lie was also very- abusive, and refused io say where he lived, but told his name.

The complainant stated that the defen- dant was lately brought up for leaving his waggon on the turnpike road, b,i, now he habitually left it on the highway. The defendant did not deny the oifene-, but wished to ex- plain to the Bench the position in which he was placed. lIe was a carrier of lead ore from the mines to the port of Aberystwith, and the journey being too long to be performed in one day, he left bis waggon on the spot complained of over night, it not being far distant from his house, but if he took it to his own premises it would be imposssble to get i' from thpre, as he would have to go up a steep hill. Their worships asked the officer if there was any place, not fdr off, which he could point out to the defendant where he could leave his waggon. The complainant replied in the nega- tive, and remarked that should consent be given to leave waggons and carts on the highway, it would soon be blocked up, as there were several other carriers who are similarly situated. The Bench advised the defendant to make some arrangement so as not to obstruct the highway, and they nould not'be harsh with him this time Fined 3d., and the clerk reduced his fees ti 2s Gd.

I desired her not to do so, upon which she struck me three times across the back with a stick, and injured me very much. I did not say anything to her, but ran away. I am in bodily fear of Iter. I have two witnesses one only is here to-day. I had summoned the otber, but I believe the defendant's husband has per- suaded him not to come here. William Jones, upon being sworn, said I work as a labourer for the complainant's father. I accompanied the complainant to the hill for some peat on the 31st of May last. I saw Margaret Thomas beat the horses, and saw her strike complainant three times with a stick. Complainant said nothing to provoke her, nor did we do anything wrong Defendant, in reply, said they drove the horses through her peat and destroyed it, and they continually did so. She did not strike the complainant, but did strike the horses to drive them out of her peat. She was bound over to keep the peace for twelve months in the-sum of E5, and her husband paid 7s. 6d. costs.—Mar- garet Jones, of Gwaryllidiart, Gwnnws, was charged by James Morgans, of Cruglas, Gwnnws, with an assault, who upon being sworn said On the 10th of June last I was herding my father's cattle. The defendant ran after me and took the stick I had driving the cattle and beat me with it, and poked me in the side with it. I did not say anything to irritate her. William Lloyd on being sworn said I saw the defendant run after the complainant, but I did not con- sider it my business to attend to them, so 1 went my way, I was a quarter of a mile distant from them. I think I saw the defendant poke the eomplainant in the side wilh some- thing she had in her hand. Defendant said the complainant drove the cattle through her field of hay,and because she told him not to do so, he called her a w- & an old open mouth." She only took the stick away from him to drive the cattle away, and threw it after him when she had done with it. The Bench said they understood the two last cases to be in consequence of disputes about land, but cautioned them not to take the law into their own hand-, but take proper means to settle their disputes. The defendant was bound over to keep the peace for twelve months in the sum of E-5, but as complainant hAd used foul language, the costs, 12s., to be borne by both parties,—Edward Daniel, Llwyncrug, Llan- badarn Croyddin-ucha, farmer, was charged bj Sarah Mor- gan, late the defendant's servaut, but now an inmate of Aberystwith Union workhouse, with a malicious assault, Complainant, a girl about 12 years of age, on being sworn said On the 7th of June last, about seven o'clock in the morning, the defendant struck her with a stick on the head until the blood flowed, and he otherwise ill-treated her.

Davies, Esq., with an elegant carriage drawn by four bays, the Mayor and the Town Council, and the usual retinue of javelin men, &c and proceeded to the Shire Hall to open the Commission. His Lordship then proceeded to St. Mary s Church, accompanied as before, where Divine Service was performed. A most appropriate sermon was preached by the Rev. J. H A. Phillips, M A., of Picton Castle, chaplain to to the High-Sheriff, the text being the 15th verse ol the 14thj chapter of Proverbs. Ou Thursday his Lordship took his seat on the bench at 11 o'clock, a.m. After the usual formalities were gone through, the following gentlemen were sworn on the Granp Jury for the County of Pembroke :—Geo.

The proclamation against vi :e and immorality having been read, his Lordship addressed the Grand Jury of the County of Pembroke, stating that it gave him great satis- faction to find that the Grand Jury for the County of Pembroke were regular in their attendance, and congratu- lated them upon the lightness of the calendar, there being only five prisoners for tiial and none of them of a serious character, This state of the County afforded him the greatest possible gratification on his first circuit to- South Wales, indicating, he hoped, a steady decrease of crime in the county. His Lordship next addressed the Grand Jury for the Town and County of Haverfordwest nearly to the same effect, thauking them for their regular attendance, and remarked that their calendar was a blank one, not presenting any prisoner for trial, a state highly creditable to the authori- ties and the inhabitants generally. The Grand Jury for the County of Pembroke then retired, and almost immediately found a true bill against William Andrews, aged 19, a soldier, charged with steal- ing from the person of Thomas Davies, on the 28th of June, 1859, at the Borough of Pembroke, a silver watch.

There it only one civil cause entered for trial at these Assizes, namely, Goode versus The South Trahli Mnt aay Company, for causing the death of a bull.
