31EMBERS OF PARLIAMENT AT HOME. Mr. Alderman Salomons reviewed the events of the' late session in a speech addressed on Wednesdav night to a meeting of his constituents at Greenwich. He did not think it a barren session, and he enumerated some of the 134 public Acts that had been passed. It was barren of great measures, but then it was to be remem- bered that almost all the great questions, whether in Church or State, had been settled. It might be said, indeed, that only one great question remained for discussion in future years—the question of parliamentary reform. Ministers had been blamed in some quarters for not bringing forward a Reform bill in the late session, but they were not wholly without excuse. At the last general election many members of the House of Commons, himself among the number, were elected on the express under- standing that they would do their best to carry a Re- form bill. In the first session of the new Parliament an attempt was made to pass a satisfactory measure, but it soon became evident that there was no party in the House of Commons strong enough for the purpose. The truth was, he believed, that in the absence of a severe pressure from without all attempts to carry a Reform bill must necessarily fail, and he was not sur- prised that Ministers should have resolved to abstain from bringing forward any such measure until it was called for by the people in a voice not to be mistaken (hear, hear)." After justifying the large expenditure of the country as necessary to secure its safety, he turned to foreign politics. Alluding to the American question, he said :— Our own interests required that we should be entirely neutral and should refrain from taking a part on one side or the other (hear, hear). He believed that when Lord Lyons, very early in the dispute, inquired whether any interference would be acceptable, he was sent away, to use a popular phrase, with a flea in his ear. Our plain duty, then, was non-interference; but, at the same time, the blockade of the Southern ports ought not to be a mere paper blockade. The Americans had always strenuously protested against paper block- ades, and they could not complain of us if we now insisted that the Southern ports should not be closed except by an effective blockade (hear, hear). The hon. and learned gentleman then turned to the question of Italy, and expressed his belief that if the Italians were left to themselves Rome and Venice would in no long time form part of a great Italian kingdom." Lord John Manners spoke on Tuesday night at Leicester, returning thanks for the county members at a dinner of Conservatives in the Corn Exchange. He sang the praises of Conservatives and Conservatism, at- tacked the government for having offered a Reform Bill, &c. Your admirable representative has told you that he, for one, regards of little moment the old party Shib- boleths, and that he thinks that the time has come when moderate men of all parties may combine to support the time-honoured institutions of our native land. Well, gentlemen, so far as the Liberal party of England is concerned, I believe it to be unfounded, as well as the remark which is sometimes made, that there is in these days no difference between the principles of contending parties, and that those time-honoured insti- tutions are as safe in the keeping of one party as in that of another. I do not believe in the truth of that assertion, and I will give you the reason why. It can only be true so long as what is called the great Liberal party is unfaithful in office to the principles which it professes (cheers). Also, for a moment, we see the heterogeneous elements of the present Cabinet re- strained by the influence, it may be, of their chief; or it may be, as I believe, by the influence of the public opinion of England (cheers). What should we do if we trusted only to that abeyance of democratic- prin- ciples for the future, A foreign convention, domestic distress, or the unsatisfied ambition of a single in- dividual may change the whole current of Liberal government policy and then we should find those institutions which we prided and honoured handed over with easy indifference to the Radical revolutionists, or the Chartists, by those to whom we had unwisely and foolishly committed their sacred keeping." He looked back complacently on the last two years as highly honourable to conservatism :— Two years ago the friends of our institutions in Church and State were, some of them—I never was-in something like despair. It seemed impossible to resist the torrent of Radical reform, and it seemed impossible to resist the onslaught of the leaders. Our institutions were to be Americanised, and the Church was to cease to be the Church of the nation (hear, hear.) But in these two years what a change has occurred I do not wish to allude more particularly to the lamentable events which are now progressing in the United States. I may say this, that from one end of England to another there is a determination that our institutions shall not be hazarded to the risks and the dangers which have fallen upon the institutions of the United States (cheers). It is not necessary to confine our remarks or to superscribe our vision to the United States. There is another great Republic in America—I mean Mexico. Half a century ago every Liberal in Europe heard with delight the release of Mexico from what was called the worn out tyranny of Spain. What is now the condition of the so-called flourishing Republic ? Why, we are told-I am afraid, on good authority— that we, the public of England, are to be at the expense of fitting out a costly expedition in order to do some- thing to bring the Republicans of America to a sense of decency and justice (cheera). My firm persuasion is, though I never was in Mexico, that there is not a sensible Mexican alive at the present moment who would not willingly at this instant exchange for the Monarchy of Spain the Republicanism of Mexico (laughter and cheers). Well, gentlemen, I fear I have detained you too long. (Voices—" Go on.") I may say that I have come here regarding the festival not so much as a triumph of one political party over another in the borough of Leicester, but much more as a triumph of those moderate Conser- vative principle which I am satisfied are permeating more and more the electoral mind of this kingdom from one end to the other, and I regard this great festival as an incitement and inducement to the other neighbouring constituencies to go and do likewise (cheers). Certain I am that so long as in the great centres of manufac- turing industry such an assemblage as this can be pro- duced to support Conservative principles, and to rally around our institutions of Church and State, that, how- ever for a time unprincipled combinations may place in office heterogenous politicians, those time-honoured institutions of our land will not be handed over without' a struggle, and a successful struggle, to philosophical* pedants, or to the more avowed inroads of political dema- gogues (cheers). For my own part, I beg leave to re- turn you my most grateful thanks (cheers). FEARFUL ACCIDENT ON THE SHREWSBURY AND WELSH POOL RAILWAY.—On Wednesday morning, between five and six o'clock, a terrible accident occurred near Hanwood station, between three and four miles from Shrewsbury, on the Welshpool line, now nearly comple- ted, by which two men were killed and seven or eight others frightfully wounded. Mr. France, the contractor, runs a train, consisting of an engine, several ballast- waggons or trucks, and a guard's van, along the line from Shrewsbury to Middle-town, a distance of fourteen miles, for the convenience of the workmen. Nearly two hundred leave Shrewsbury every morning, and return at night. The train left the station as usual shortly after five o'clock yesterday morning, and all went right for the first few miles. Just before they reached Hanwood, it was observed that the trucks suddenly began to oscillate, and in an instant the last truck but one tumbled over with a terrific crash down a slight embankment, pitching the men out in all directions. The truck which followed was also dragged down the embankment, and those in that were also thrown out, but not with such violence, as the train was not proceeding at a rapid pace. The break van was not thrown off the line, but the men in it jumped out in the greatest consterna- tion. It is computed there were about twenty men in each truck and eight or ten in the van. The cries of the poor fellows were heartrending, and as soon as assistance could be procured it was found that two men were killed on the spot, their names being Georg Dax, of Shrewsbury, carpenter, and Joseph Bates, of the same place, labourer. They are both married men with families. One had been driven against a post outside the line, and over the other the wheels of the truck had run, completely crushing him. Two other men were fearfully mangled, and no hopes are entertained of their recovery. Six more were rather seriously injured. As soon as possible Mr. Blakeway, of Hanwood Mill, rendered assistance, and immediately forwarded the in- jured men to the infirmary at Shrewsbury. Upon examining the trucks it was found that one of the irons which ran underneath, to which the coupling chains are attached, had become loosened from constant work- ing, and while they were. proceeding along had worked out from beneath the third truck from the end of the train. The last truck but one came upon one end of it, the other being driven against a rail, which turned the truck completely over, thereby causing the accident. The former part of the train proceeded for some distance without the men being aware of the accident, as the morning had not then broken.

CATTLE AND PIG FAIRS. LAMPETER.—OCTOBER KUIt.-This fair was hold on Saturday the 19th inst., when more than the usual number of drovers attended, and business was brisk on horned cattle at slightly advanced prices. HAVERFORDWEST, Friday.—The cattle fair was toler- ably well supplied with stock, but the supply of good cattle was small. The demand, especially for first rate cattle, was keen, and prices rose steadily until all the best stock was disposed of. Buyers being numerous the competition was much closer than we have witnessed it at late fairs. Sheep showed well, and went off at good prices. The horse fair, as usual, was small, and but few really good animals were offered for sale. The pig fair on Saturday was very well supplied both with stores and suckers. There was also a very fine show of fat and half fat pigs, for which high prices were asked and given. Stores and suckers were not much asked after, and prices were stationary.
I VEIn little piulic interest is felt this year in the election of cuncillors for the borough of Car- marthen, and soae difficulty has been experienced in obtaining' sutablo candidates to represent the 1:1 'Th'' t 1, interests of tie ratepayers. This is not pecu l iar to Carmarthcx, for we hear a similar complaint from many elver places. There is a growing in- disposition (n the part of educated men of local influence tc accept the duties of councillors, and our municpal institutions have in consequence suffered. vVe do not profess to acccount for this -ts a l rea d y occu p ie d tile state of tiings, which has already occupied the attention of some distinguished men at the National Congres; for the Promotion of Social Science, and has beel discussed in long and elaborate articles. We sinply mention the fact that the burgesses of Carmarthen, as well as in many other towns, do no; trouble themselves about municipal matters. It Is. however, important that the affairs of the town should be under the direction of a council wh?h fairly represents the opinions of the rate- paers, and in which they have confidence. At present there is no question of magnitude for cmsideration, but the ordinary business of the corporation requires time and some degree of local knowledge, which is not so easily acquired is is generally supposed. Notwithstanding the apathy which prevails, a strong desire is felt that the vacancies this year should be filled by men of position and intelligence. In the western ward there are two vacancies caused by the death of Mr. J. Thomas, and the election of Mr. Rowlands as the successor of the late Mr. Alderman Stacey. Mr. Brodie, and Mr. Davies, of Quay-street, are proposed for these vacancies, and they are in every respect entitled j to the support which they receive, and they will no doubt be returned without opposition. Mr. E. B. Jones, the retiring councillor for the western ward, has given so much satisfaction as to ensure his re-election. In the Eastern Ward the retiring coiiiicillors are Mr. Puddicombe, Mr. J. Webb Jones, and Mr. David Davies. Mr. Jones will not be nominated again, but Mr. Puddicombe and Mr. Davies, who arc old and well tried councillors, will be re-elected. Mr. Jeptha Jones is named as the successor to Mr. Webb Jones, but he has not declared his intentions. We have also heard that Mr. William Jones, ironmonger, Red-street, is canvassing for himself, with every prospect of being returned. The new Mayor will be Mr. W. Warren, who is by general consent accepted as the successor of Mr. Thomas. Since the above was written, and just before going to press, we learn that a different arrange- ment has been come to. Mr. E. B. Jones, Mr. Brodie, and Mr. Jeptha Jones are nominated for the western ward, and Mr. Puddicombe, Mr. David Davies, and Mr. Davies, of Quay-street, for the eastern ward.
￼ FUNERAL OF SIR JAMES HAMLYN 11 B WILLIAMS. I LAST week we brieiiy recorded the death of Sir James Hamlyn Williams, Bart., of Edwinsford, in this county, and of Clovclly Court, Devon, which occurred on Thurs- day, the 10th instant. His funeral, which was strictly private and in accordance with his desires, took place at Clovelly Court on Tuesday, the 15th inst. His remains were carried by fifteen labourers in mourning, and | accompanied by a numerous and respectable tenantry. There were also present—Lady jj Williams, Sir James Drummond and Lady I Drunimond, Col. Fergusson & Mrs. Fergusson, E Earl Fortescue, Earl Devon, Hon. G. Fortescue, | and Lady Fortescue, Hon. and Rev. John E Fortescue, Hon. Gerald Noel, M.P., Rev. | James Chichester, Sir George Stanley and I Capt. Stanley, and Mr. Willit, of Vellycomh. Col. Fane and Mrs. Fane were prevented from allumliuy IHIK-O.?. Sir James was born in 1790, and succeeded to the title in 1829. In 1823 he married Mary, daughter of Earl Fortescue. He was the last male heir of the house of Edwins- ford, and with him died the title. He is succeeded in his estates by his three daugh- ters Lady Drummond, Mrs. Fergusson and Mrs. Fane. The gallant baronet served with distinc- tion in the Peninsular war, and, if further opportunity had presented itself, there is no doubt he would have found a place by the side of our more distinguished gene- rals, for he possessed personal courage and those higher qualities which characterise our great soldiers. But the declaration of peace at the fall of Napoleon cut off the chance of promotion, and other and more peaceful pursuits engaged his attention. He was aide-de-camp to Sir Henry Clinton, who recommended him for promotion in his dispatches in consequence of his gallant I conduct at Toulouse and Orthes, and the pursuit of the enemy to Barcelona during which occurred the affairs of Carceres and and Tarbes, and ultimately the memorable battle of Toulouse. He retired from his regiment-the 7th Hussars-some time after the return of the Army of Occupation, to which he was attached. Sir James was a deputy-lieutenant for for Devon, and in 1848 was high sheriff for Carmarthenshire. He was also Lieut.- Colonel of the East Devon Militia. At the time of the Reform Bill, and subse- quently, he took a very active part in g political affairs, and in 1830-1 and 1835-7 H he represented this county in Parliament g| as a Liberal, and up to the hour of his H death he was ever ready to promote the u interests of his political friends. He was from ■ conviction a Liberal, and remained true H to his principles under all circumstances. g But for many years past lie abstained H from any direct personal interference H in the county elections, although his H influence has always gone in favour of H liberalism. When the late Earl of Cawdor died, the Lord-Lieutenancy of the County H was offered to Sir James, but he de- i clined the honour owing to the infirm state of his health. His memory will, how- ever, be cherished with the warmest feelings by those who knew him best in domestic and social life. He was naturally kind- hearted and amiable; and as a landlord generous and much respected. He assisted all the charitable institutions of the county, and for some years the Infirmary has enjoyed the rental of the game on one of his estates amounting to about £50 per annum.
I LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. On Sunday last at St. Ishmael's Church after a sermon by the Rev. O. Jones, Vicar, a collection amount- ing to 13 3s. Sd., was made in aid of the Carmarthenshire Infirmary. COUNTY INFIRMAKY.—A lecture was delivered in aid of the funds of the above institution, at Capcl Isaac, near Llanfynydd, on the 17th inst., by Dr. Lloyd. Al- though the notice given of the lecture was very short, the chapel was crowded and the sum realized was £ 6 2s. Sd. The subject was, The Element of Astronomy," illustrated by a very beautiful orrery. ZTON CHAVEZ. On Sunday last the anniversary ser- vices in connection with this place of worship were held, when sermons were preached by the Rev. W. Howels, of Liverpool, to numerous congregations. On Monday i evening the Rev. II Jones, of Lammas-street Chapel, and the Rev. D. Howels, of Swansea, preached in Welsh at Wator-stroct Chapel. The collections exceeded 125. SUDlJE DEATH.—Elizabeth, widow of the late John Rees, watchmaker, Albert-row, Little Water-street, died suddenly yesterday morning in bod, about throe o'clock. It appears that Hannah Thomas, who was sleeping in the same bed and heard the deceased breathing hard called for assistance, aud Mr. J. L. Williams, surgeon, was sent for, but on his immediate arrival found life extinct. It Is supposed the deceased, who was 63 years old, died from a fit. 2ND AND 0TH CARMARTHEN'SHIRI-: RIFLE VOLUNTEERS.

Browne Edwardes, Captain; James Wobb Jones, Orderly Sergeant. ST. PETER'S CHURCH.—The committee appointed to superintend the restoration of the ceiling of St. Peter's Church met on Wednesday last at the Council Chamber, to close the accounts. It appears that the improvements which have just been completed cost a few pounds more than the amount subscribed, but when the arrears are all collected the dcliciency, we are glad to find, will not exceed ten pounds. The committee before breaking up passed a resolution expressing their entire satisfaction with the designs furnished by their architect, Mr. Lindsay, aud also with the excellent manner in which the work had been executed by the contractors, Messrs. 1). M. and T. Williams, builders, &c., in this town. LLANLLWOK.—• Meetings for thanksgiving for the late harvest wore held at this church on Tuesday, the 15th inst., at 10 a.m., at 2 p.m., and at 6 p.'m., when the Rev. J. Rowlands, Pombroy, Rev. Samuel Jones, Whit- land, Rev. N. M. Evans, Llandowror, and the Rev. D. Davies, Gwinfe, preached. The sermons were able and appropriate, and the congregations so numerous that a great many persons could not obtain room in the church, but were compelled to crowd about the door. CARMARTHEN PETTY SE.,Sio-, s. -These sessions were hold in the Shire Hall, on Saturday last, before Col. Sir J. J. Hamilton, Bart., and R. Jennings, Esq. Thomas Thomas, Derlwyn, Llandissil, was fined Is. and costs for using a cart which had not the owner's name on it. Patrick Toole was charged with assaulting P.S.

I was on duty at the time near the Farmer's Arms public-house, at St. Clears. He was stripped and bleeding from the mouth. He went into the Santa Clara public-house and I was shortly afterwards sent for to turn him out, as he was riotous and very drunk. In turning him out he struck me several times with his fists, scratched my face, and tore my coat I have had my coat repaired it cost me Is. This was all the evidence, and the defendant, who admitted the offence and expressed contrition, was fined £ 2 6s. 8d., including costs,-Tlwmas Bayley, a rifle- man in the uniform of the Brecknockshire Militia, was charged with an assault. Martin M'Cloughlin, whose head and face bore marks of punishment, examined I am an Irishman, and a Roman Catholic, and hope to live and dio so. On the 10th inst. I was assaulted by the defendant, who interfered in a dispute I had with Annie Green, whose basket I had seized for money she owed me. He cut my head and nearly strangled me. This took place in the middle of the day on the turnpike road between Laugharne and St. Clears. He struck me with a stick.-The Bench What sort of stick was it 2- Witness: A good size one. —The Bench A shillelah ?— Witness: Yes; a regular shillelah that never missed fire. -Cross-examined by the defendant: I met you be- fore I met Annie Green. I was seated with her on a bank on the road side. She has lived with me, and I seized her basket for a trifle she owed me. We strug- gled and got over into the ditch. She cried Murder," but I am sure she had no occasion for it.-Annie Green, who was called for the defence, said I was returning from Laugharne to St. Clears on Wednesday morning. The defendant was a little in advance of me. I met the complainant and said, How do you do, Mac?" lie replied by calling me names. I said, I have parted from you," and he answered Very well, you owo me fourpencc and shall pay me." I told him I had not so much money, and he then seized my basket, saying, "I will suffer six months for. you." He had me down in the ditch, and put his knee on my stomach. I thought he would have murdered me. I formerly lived with him as his wife. I have lived with the defendant since April. We travel about together. Tho defendant came to my assistance. The complainant struck him with a stick on the knees, and the defendant struck him on the head. The de- fendant was convicted in the penalty of 5s. and costs, and in default of payment was committed to prison for fourteen days.—On Monday, before Capt.

George Lewis was fined Is. and costs for an assault. Thomas Davies was charged with drunkenness and riotous conduct. P.C. Woozley ex- amined: About a quarter to 1 o'clock on Sunday morn- ing, the 13th inst., I saw the defendant, with three others, going into St. Peter's-street from King-street. He knocked at Mr. Shepherdson's door, and then ran away. I overtook him in Priory-street. He was drunk. I took him into custody but he got away from me, as I was assisting P.C. Jones, who had in charge a prisoner who was assaulting him. The defendant was convicted in the penalty of 5s. and costs,-Margaret Jones was charged with wilful and malicious damage. Mary Jones examined I am a widow, and live at the top of the Parade. On Tuesday morning, about 2 o'clock, the prisoner came to my house and threw a stone through the window, and threatened to break every pane of glass in the window. She created a great noise. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers saw what she did and heard all she said. She was very drunk. She broke the window purposely, and looked for stones to break the other panes. My son went for the police and she left. The pane of glass was worth ninepence. The defendant was ordered to pay the damage and costs of proceedings, or in default to be imprisoned for a month.-On Wed- nesday, before the Mayor and G. Davies, Esq.

I was married to my husband on the 8th of August, 1839, at the parish of Llan- fihangel-ar-arth. I have five children. On the 19th of May, 1860, my husband left me, and said he was going away in search of employment. He returned three times between that day and July, 1860. He lived with me on those occasions as previously. The last time he came back was on a Saturday night, and on the following morning he went away again to Neath. I applied to him in October, 1860, for money towards the support of my family, and he replied that I was to follow him. I declined to go. The magistrates re- fused the application, a case of desertion as required by the Act not having been proved. CARMARTHEN LITEItARY AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTION. The October quarterly meeting was held on Tuesday evening last in the Reading Room, King-street, Mr. J. N. Roberts, presided. The report of the quarter ending September 30th, stated the number of members to have been 215, a decrease when compared with the corresponding quarters of 1860 and 1859-in 1860 the numbers were 235, in 1859, 262. The number of members using the library had been 126 the number of volumes issued and renewed 946. The arrange- ments for a course of eight lectures, to adopt the words of the report, have been completed. One of the lec- tures, viz that by the Rev. A. Mac Auslane, On the Proper Time to say No," is free to all members, and will be delivered on Wednesday evening, November 6th. This lecture is provided at the expense of the funds of the Institution, and as pecuniary re-iuaburse- ment can only arise from the payments of persons who are not members, the committee trust that the members will induce their friends to attend in sufficient numbers to prevent any loss accruing. The other lectures are as before, provided at the risk of the guarantees to the lecture fund, and season tickets at moderate prices are offered to the members, as fully detailed in the programmes which have been sent out. In consequence of a gradual diminution in the number of the members of this Institution during the successive quarters of the last two years, and consequent decrease in the income which threatene d before long seriously to impair the efficiency of the Society, a special general meeting was held on the 24th September, when a number of members kindly volunteered to canvass the town for new subscribers, a measure which has been attended with very satisfactory results, as nearly 90 persons have since been admitted members. After the report and the financial account were passed, a vote of thanks to tc chairman closed the proceedings.—The lecture session for the winter commenced on Wed- nesday evening last, by Mr. and Mrs. Geo. A. Cooper, of London, giving a musical entertainment, entitled Memoranda on Music at Homo and Abroad." The entertainment consisted of a critical sketch of musical matters, illustrated by several songs by Mr. and Mrs. Cooper. The songs were of great variety—Italian, Spanish, German, French, Irish, and English the peculiarities of each being contrasted and com- mented upon in a happy manner. Mrs. Cooper's sing- ing of Lady Dufferin's 0 Bay of Dublin" was undoubtedly the gem of the evening, although it did not meet with the applause it merited. Mr. Cooper was more fortunate in securing an encore in his songs. The attendance was large and respectable, and every one seemed delighted with the evening's amusement. THE MARKET TOLLS.—On Wednesday the market tolls and Quay dues were let by auction in the Council Chamber by Mr. Morris Evans. There was a largo attendance of bidders and after a sharp competition the market tolls were let to Mr. Percy, for £ 1,380, and the weighing machine and Quay dues to Mr. Willing, for £ 72. SUl'l'OSED UCRlm OF A CHILD.-On Monday evening P.O. Jeremy was summoned to a woman in an exhausted state at Kidwelly. She was lying on the road in a wretched condition, and after affording her relief he was led from her appearance to inquire if she had not re- cently nursed a child. She told him she had given birth to a child six weeks since, and had nursed it until that morning, when she gave it to Roberts, a travelling mountebank, who was fond of it, in the presence of Mrs. Jones, a common lodging-house keeper in this town. This appeared an improbable story, and the woman was detained while her statement was investigated. It was found that she left the lodging-house in Water-street with the child, and that Roberts and his wife went through Francis Well toll-gate on Monday morning without any child. The woman, whose name is Elizabeth Morgan, a tramp, was therefore on Tuesday brought before J. Thomas, Esq., mayor, when the following evidence was given. P.S. David Williams examined: In consequence of information I received I went to Kid- welly to-day. I saw the prisoner at the lodging-house there. She was in custody, having been apprehended by P.C. Jeremy, on a charge of having destroyed her child. When Jeremy and I went to her, she said to J ercmy-" Have you seen my little child r" He said No; it cannot be found." She replied, I have done nothing to him." She told me afterwards that she had given the child to the wife of Roberts, a travelling tumbler, near the Butcher's Arms in this town, and that they waited for her there. She said they had lodged with her in Water-street, on Sunday, and on Monday morning they left first, and waited for her near the Butcher's Arms. Mrs. Roberts went and pur- chased a nursing bottle and when she returned she gave her the child. Roberts and his wife then left with the child for Llandovery fair. On their way to Carmarthen, she said Roberts and his wife were very fond of her children and wished to take the eldest, but he refused to go with them, and she then gave them the youngest, which was about six weeks old. Before she left Kidwelly, but after Jeremy was gone, she told her she had told Jeremy that she gave the child to Mrs. Roberts in the presence of Mrs. Jones the lodging-house keeper, but that was not so, and she was sorry for having made that statement, as it had brought trouble upon her,-P.C, W m, W oozley examined: This morning at half-past 3 o'clock, I went to Francis Well turnpike gate and saw Thomas Davies, the gate keeper. I asked him if he had noticed Roberts and his wife going through the gate yesterday morning, He said he knew them well and had seen them pass. I asked him if they had a baby with them and he said no they had not, and that he took particular notice of them. This was all the evidence, and the prisoner was remanded until Friday; but on Wednesday she was brought up again and discharged, satisfactory intelli- gence of the child having been obtained. ST. CLEARS.—Thanksgiving services for the harvest were held at Llandowror Church, on the 22nd inst. At 2 30 p.m. the Rev. J. H. A. Philipps, of Picton Castle, preached an excellent sermon to a large congregation, from the 68th Psalm, and the 10th verse-" Thy con- gregation hath dwelt therein thou, 0 God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor." At 6 in the evening the Rev. Mr. Hughes officiated. LLADlLO.-UOCEltT.-On Tuesday evening last, the Female Christy's Minstrels gave a very pleasing enter- tainment at the Town Hall. The programme contained some very good selections from the Christy's songs, which were rendered with good taste. The attendance was small. LLANDILO POLICE.—On Saturday last, before Wm. du Buisson, Esq. John Sullivan, a rag and bone gatherer, was brought up charged with stealing a tram wheel on the previous d. John Llewellyn deposed: I am tenant of a colliery which I have taken of Mr. Daniels, Swansea. I know the prisoner well by sight. He is a rag dealer. In consequence of having on former occa- sions missed several cast iron wheels from an old smithy, I went there yesterday to count the number that were then in the smithy, and found there were six. In about two hours afterwards I again went to the smithy, and found that one of the wheels which was there in the morning was missing. I had noticed the prisoner with his cart and donkey close to the smithy before I went to reckon the wheels in the morning. xlis 'cart was close to the smithy after I had reckoned the wheels. Upon observing that one of the wheels was missing, I suspected the prisoner, and followed him towards Cross Inn. I saw his cart close to his dwelling- house. I called upon P.C. Jones to search the cart. He accompanied me, and in a bag close to the prisoner's storehouse found the wheel produced. It is exactly like the one missed. I went to reckon the wheels that morning owing to having missed wheels before when the prisoner was in the neighbourhood.—P.C. John Jones deposed: I am stationed at Cross Inn. Yester- day evening the last witness came to my house and told me he had missed a tram wheel from the smithy near Raven Inn Colliery, and that he suspected the prisoner, who had just come in with his cart. I went to the prisoner's house and asked him if he had any iron on his premises. He said No." I searched and found the wheel produced in a bag lying against the wall of the prisoner's store-room, with some straw thrown over it. I noticed the bag when I went to the store-room lying against the wall not covered with straw. There was some straw then in the cart. The prisoner re- mained outside by the cart whilst I went in. On coming out I noticed the bag covered with straw. I cautioned him and took him into custody. The prisoner told me he had bought the wheel of a woman who lived near the colliery.—The prisoner reserved his defence, and was committed for trial at the next Quarter Sessions, but admitted to bail.——On Wednesday, before the Rev. D. H. T. G. Williams and J. L. Thomas, Esq. David Griffiths, of Penyryn, LlariRebio, was brought up in custody charged by Daniel Evans, of Llwyny- frynan, Llandebie, with threatening to kill him with a billhook. The complainant deposed On Saturday last I saw the defendant's son kicking my daughter. I went out to fetch her, when the defendant came with a billhook in his hand and said he would kill me. I am afraid, from the threats the defendant has used, he will do me some bodily injury.—The defendant was bound over in the sum of £10, to keep the peace for six months.—John Sullivan, the prisoner who was com- mitted on Saturday, was again charged on suspicion of stealing a tram wheel from Gellycudrun colliery, the property of Mr. Charles Morgan. The evidence not being conclusive, the prisoner was discharged. LI,ANF,LL Y. -Trade here is reviving a little, though by no means so brisk as at corresponding periods of former years. The great want of the port appears to be better dock accommodation. There has been a growing public feeling on this subject for some years. The extension of the docks and their connexion with the broad guage railway was advocated in these columns as far back as 1856-57. A committee was appointed subsequently by the harbour commissioners to consider the extension of the Carmarthen dock and rendering it available for large vessels, with a view to extend tho foreign coal trade. Two of the existing docks have been connected with the broad guage, but the shipments have rather fallen off than increased, arising in a great measure, it is supposed, from the want of more commodious floating docks. Coal is evidently the staple trade of the district, and the future progress of the place clearly depends on the development of this important branch of commerce. It is tolerably certain that this development of the coal trade cannot take place without larger docks and it is gratifying to find the commissioners alive to the ques- tion. The subject was discussed at their last monthly meeting, on the motion of Mr. R. T. Howell for a com- mittee to investigate the subject. The committee ap- pointed in 1857 appears to have been a dead letter ￼ but, as the subject is now revived, it is hoped it will be carried to a successful issue, as it is of vital importance to the town. LLANELLY PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held on Wednesday last, before J. H. Roes, Esq., and R. Smith, Esq. John Jones, blacksmith, Llangennech, was summoned on the complaint of P.C. D. Price for selling beer without a license. The defendant pleaded guilty to the charge, but said the information had been given by a man with whom he had quarrelled. He did think there was any harm in selling beer. He was convicted and fined 20s. and costs.-Thomas Lewis, butcher, Worn, was summoned on the complaint of John Jones, butcher, and was charged with unlawfully threatening to do him serious bodily harm. The com- plainant said he was willing to withdraw the charge if the defendant would promise not to molest him again, and pay the costs. The bench allowed them to arrange accordingly. William Anthony, farmer, Kenroes, Pembrcy, was charged by T. Lewis, inspector of police, South Wales Railway, with riding in a carriage from Llanelly to Pombrey on the 10th October without having previously paid the fare, and with intention to avoid paying the same. The defendant said he went to the train half an hour before time, and turned in to the New Inn public-house, and had no further recollection. He was cautioned and fined £1 and costs.—The same was charged by the same complainant with being found in a carriage in a state of intoxication on the 10 th inst. The offence was proved, and a fine of 5s. in- ilicted. William Gougli, agent for Mr. Greenfield, Llanelly, was charged by a number of workmen em- ployed in the parish of Llanon with refusing to pay wages due to them. There were 26 men in court with, claims varying from £ 2 or £ 3 to Xio. All the cases being proved, and the agent not objecting to any, an order was made in each case.
