I THE KIDWELLY AND LLANELLY CANAL AND TRAMROAD. I C??neral meeting of the Kidwelly and Llanelly lallal t and Tramroad Company was held on Tuesday ?t ? ?e Neptune Hotel, Pembrey, for the purpose of con"°S the question of con rting the Kidwelly ;0,LI and branches into a railway and branch railways. "Th Committee presented the following report:- J L Committee have called the Special Assembly of the<? '?P?y' ? ?° purpose of considering the ques- tin? of „ converting the Canal into a Railway. In 1863 411 attempt was made by the Carmarthen and Cardigan liailway Company, to obtain Parliamentary Powers for r4'4ing a Railway from the South Wales Railway at ?.welly to the Carway and Coalbrook Collieries, and ?'?g parallel to the Canal the whole way but the 'nwas defeated in the House of Lords by your Com- t) "tee, after considerable expense. Last year an Act of j>a ^"anient was obtained by a new company, for making a Wa^ from the Hanelly Docks upon the site of the olI Carraarthenshiro Tram-road, up to the great reser- 0'r near Cross Hands, with a. branch to the Coalbrook %iliery. This railway also ran parallel to the Canal, but distance than the proposed railway that ? ?1 '?ated in the previous year. This year Parlia- raeutary Powers will be again sought for making the rail y from Kidwelly to Carway and Coalbrook Col- eri. eli that was defeated in 1863. Application has been Hiyour Committee by the traders upon the Canal, *nd K °^*er colliery owners in the neighbourhood of th Gwendraeth Valley, to convert the Canal into a way, as the only means of preventing the present traffi^0 '?S diverted from it, and of inducing other coif "Vowners to use it. Your Committee have given the 8^v,- much consideration, and have unanimously 4tr'IV'd 'It the conclusion, that the conversion of the cth?na"? "?o a railway is the only chance of preventing th estructIon of your property. Your committee belif. that by the Act of Parliament incorporating the p with the sanction of a Special General A's 'Orably, they have power to do this, but it will be HHe-? ?y. or at least advisable, to go to Parliament to ra '.Be Urther capital, and for other purposes. Plans and sect"; ? of the whole of the Canal and Branches pro- p 0 ? converted into a Railway have been made b Your Superintendent, who has also prepared an esti- ,y a,t?u of te expense of making the Railway from Burry IW t Cwm Mar, including the branches to Kidwelly Citr ?' ?? Trimsaran. His estimate of the cost is j £ l Per mile, the Canal and branches being 16 miles ? ?Qgth, makmg the total cost £ 31,633. The committee the matter should be left to them to carry ? ? the best way they can for the interest of the ^holders." After some discussion, it was resolved unanimously that the report now read be received and adopted, and '?e Committee be and they are hereby empowered to tnake and convert the Canal and Branch Canals into a Railway and Branch Railways, and substitute a Rail- way and Branch Railways for and in lieu of a Canal, ftQd to take such measures for that purpose as they may consider requisite or be advised. At the close of the general meeting the committee Solved that application be made to Parliament in the Filing session for an Act to convert the present Canal alid Branches into a Railway from Burry Port to Cwm- "?wr Bridge, to raise a further sum of money not ex- ceeding ?o,000, and to extend the proposed Railway fro? Cwmmawr Bridge to the end of the great reservoir -?ar the Cross Hands such Act to contain the usual Qd necessary powers.

PUBLIC THANKSGIVING.—On Wednesday, the 19th inst., the various denominations in this town held their annual day of prayer for the plentiful harvest this year. Many of the shops in the town were closed. THE PROMENADE PIER.-This undertaking has at last been commenced, some of the pillars have been fixed, and a number of men are at work. We are sorry to find that out of the required capital of X10,000, little more than R2,000 in shares have yet been taken. A SAD ACCIDENT.—On the afternoon of Sunday last, the quiet vale of Clarach, near this town, was suddenly aroused into an excited state, in consequence of a report that a man had fallen over the rocks into the sea, be- tween the farm of Glanymor and Wallog, and a great nnmber of people immediately assembled on the spot. It appears that Mr Evan Edwards, of Tymaur, Clarach, had gone as usual to see for the cattle which were depasturing on the hills facing the sea, accompanied by a boy in his employ. Edwards on finding one of the cattle grazing on the very brink of a precipiece, went forward to get between the animal and the rocks, the cow made a sudden start to turn, but unfortunately the man and the cow fell headlong over the frightful cliff to the beach, which was at that place very rough. The unfortunate man on being found sighed, and in a few minutes expired the animal was also killed. On Tuesday an inquest was held, before J. M. Davies, Esq., coroner, when a verdict was returned of Acci- dental Death." THE NEW ENGLISH INOBPEDENT CHAPEL. — The members of this religious body have at last succeeded in purchasing a most convenient piece of land, having a commanding view in Portland-street, for the purpose of erecting a new English Chapel, a thing much required at this place, the railway having attracted a large num- ber of people to come and reside here. The plans are now being prepared by an eminent architect recom- mended by Mr Crossley, of Halifax, and the building in all probability will be commenced without delay. Some liberal friends have already promised very handsome subscriptions, among whom is the celebrated Mr Morley, who gives £ 150. LLANDYSSUL.—NEW MONTHLY CATTLE MARKET. -This market was held on Tuesday the 18th inst., being the third Tuesday of the month, which with the cattle show held on the same day turned out very satis- factory. Both were well supplied with a good show of cattle, sheep, pigs, &c., which were mostly disposed of at fair prices. After the judges had given their award, Major Lewes, the President, and many other gentlemen, dined at the King's Head. The cloth being removed, the President after having called upon Mr Thos Evans, Troedyraur (one of the judges) to read their award, ex- pressed his regret that so many gentlemen were absent on account of the Quarter Sessions, at Aberayron, being holden the same day, and delivered a most appropriate and encouraging speech in favour of the market, remarking that the town is so centrally situated for the convenience of the whole county, as to command a most extensive supply of cattle, sheep, butter, cheese, &c., and on account of railway accommodation being so convenient to supply the Glamorganshire and other markets, that it only required to be made known and that some attention be paid by the farmers, to establish a most successful market, which would be found of lasting benefit to the country generally, and said that he was ready to give every assistance to support the market, as well an annual cattle show, and stated that he knew many gentlemen connected with the neigh- bourhood who had not given it their support, not having been applied to he hoped, however, that next year a cattle show on a much larger scale would be held, and that all the gentlemen, tradesmen, and far- mers of the county would give it their cordial support. He expressed his regret at the unavoidable absence of the Rev. Thos Lloyd, Gilfachwen, a gentleman much respected by all, and who was always ready to aid and support every good cause, and proposed his very good health, which was most cheerfully drunk by all present. I The chairman spoke in very high terms of the abilities and qualifications of Mr Thos. Evans, Troedyraur, who had kindly attended as one of the judges, and proposed that the thanks of the meeting be offered to him, as well as to the treasurer and secretary, for their most valuable services, and proposed their good health, which was readily drunk, 'lhey responded, and spoke highly in favour of the undertaking, as it was likely to be of permanent public good. Some further speeches in favour of the movement were delivered, and it was most warmly proposed that the thanks of the meeting be offered to their excellent and worth President, who had proved himself in every respect well worthy oi the honor they had done him, believing that the success of the movement was so fair gained through his very kind influence and most liberal support. The toast was drank with cheers. The chairman replied in his usual gentlemanly manner, and ordered the treasurer to pay the several prizes according to the award. That being done the meeting separated highly pleased with the preceedings of the day. The following are the awards:- For the best two-year-old Black Heifer, zCl 10s,-To Mr D Davies, Dyffrynllynod; 2nd, 15s, to Mr James Rees, Lookabout; 3rd, 7s 6d, to Mr Evan Evans, Penrallt.

I THE LATE JOHN EVANS, ESQ., Q.C., AND EX-M.P. FOR HAVERFORDWEST. It is with feelings of deep regret that we have to an- nounce the death, on the 17th instant, at Buxton, of John Evans, Esq., Q.C., late of 30, Cumberland Terrace, Regent's Park, London, and but a few years since the representative in Parliament of this town and its con- tributory boroughs. Mr Evans has been so long and so favourably known throughout South Wales, that any attempt on our part to produce a laboured panegyric on his character and conduct through life, whether in its legal, political, private, or domestic relations, would be as unnecessary as it would be presumptuous in us, for, in each and evory of the multifarious duties he has had to deal with, his praiseworthy career has ever been but on the straightforward path of candour, and integrity, and in every honourable and enobling direction, which was ever combined with a most gentle and unostenta- tious charitableness of disposition towards the helpless, the destitute and the suffering poor. Mr Evans was the son of the Rev. John Evans, who was for more than twenty years minister of the lres- byterian Congregation, St. Thomas Green. About four years after his settlement at Haverford- west, on the llth of May, 1788, the Rev. Mr Evans married Mrs Ann Meylett, widow of Mr Morgan Mey- lett, then late of Lawrenny, and the late Mr John Evans was the only issue, and was born at No. 1, St. Marti., Crescent, in this town. The Rev. Mr Evans died in 1808. The son at the time of his father's death had not attained to the age of manhood, and is said by those who remember his boyhood's days, to have been possessed of a rather wayward and frolicsome disposition, which, however, became toned down to perfect sedateness as years grew upon him, for his education was of a very liberal nature, and in classics and mathematics he was perseveringly studious. He continued his studies unde- viatingly, and his intellectual acquirements soon became pre-eminent, giving bright promise for the future. After this, he applied himself with energetic unwearying j diligence to the study of the law, in which he made great progress, and on 16th June, 1820, was called to the English Bar becoming a Bencher of the Inner Temple. The South Wales Circuit was that on which Mr Evans practised, and in a few years he became con- spicuous for his great forensic talents, which gave him such an inherent consciousness of superiority, that he soon attained a distinguished and well earned p,)sit on amongst his brethren of the Bar, by whom he was in- variably looked upon, as the leader on Circuit" for the extent of his experience gave him an evident prac- tical advantage over his compeers on these occasions, if we except perhaps the late Mr Chilton, and Mr Vaughan Williams, who, as Sir Edward Vaughan Williams has for some years adorned the Judicial bench. Indeed, the reputation of Mr Evans for legal acumen, solid judgment, and simple, but forcible and eloquent pleading, and his general successful conduct of cases in which he was engaged, obtained for him, in 1837, the well deserved honor of a silk gown as Q.C. From this time forth his fortunate career at the bar became an established fact; and there was scarcely a trial of any moment on the South Wales Circuit, in which his truly valuable, and highly appreciated services were not re- tained, and by which he was enabled to realize a hand- some independence In the year 1817, the late Sir Richard Bulkeley Philipps Philipps, Bart, the then re- presentative in Parliament of Haverfordwest, &c., was raised to the peerage by the title and dignity of Baron Milford, of Milford Haven, in the county of Pembroke. Mr Evans, at the suggestion of numerous friends and admirers in this town, and also in Fishguard and Nar- berth, with an honourable desire and laudable ambition to become the representative of his native town in the British House of Commons, at once offered himself to fill the vacancy, occasioned as aforementioned, and was so well and enthusiastically received by all classes, that on the 30th day of July in that year (1847), he was returned without opposition. From this date Mr Evans partially abandoned his pre- vious lucrative profession, as his Parliamentary duties, which were attended to with unswerving fidelity to the interests of his constituents, demanded a great portion of his time during those very months in which the Assize Circuits are usually fixed. There was, however, a party of electors in the boroughs who did not relish Mr Evans's votes upon certain politi- cal questions, and they came to a determination to oust him. They went to work with an earnestness that resulted in Mr Evans's defeat, and the success of Mr Scourfield, on the 7th of July, 1852. After this overthrow, Mr Evans retired into almost private life, rarely going the Assize Circuit, unless specially retained for the leadership in some important case or other, until of late he had almost entirely given up his professional pursuits. His chambers, when in practice, were at 11, Crown Office Row, London; his private residence of late years being, as already men- tioned, 30, Cumberland Terrace, Regent's Park. His numerous charities in this town (as previously at- i luded to) were spread amongst the indigent and suffer- ing poor, with an impartial and truly philanthropic generosity, almost svrpassing belief, were it not borne out by unimpeachable and irrefragable facts. His hand and purse were ever open as day to melting charity." Tho deceased was twice married first to Anna Jane, eldest daughter of the late Mr Henry Davis, of Mullock, in the county of Pembroke, and second to the only daughter of the late Mr Titus Owen, surgeon, London, and formerly of Hill-street, in this town, whose wife was a Miss Bowen, of Llwyngwair.—Abridged from the Haverfordwest Telegraph.
BRECONSHIRE. I B R E C 0 N.—BOROUGHVPOLICE COURT.-On Monday Thomas Prosser, of the Farmers' Arms, was charged with an infraction of his license.—Remanded. THE MUNICIPAL ELECTION.—We perceive that there are five candidates in the field for municipal honours, namely, Mr John Prothero, and Mr John Morris, (for re-election,) and Messrs. Joseph Josephs, John Morgan, and Thomas Trew, in lieu of Mr James Williams, and Mr John Powell, who have resigned. ACCIDENT.—We regret to state that on Saturday afternoon, Mr Penry Lloyd, of Brynderwyn, met with a painful accident. While viewing the operations of a gorse cutting machine he inadvertently placed his right hand upon one of the cogs, which revolving, carried his hand into the machinery, completely crushing the middle finger of the right hand, and painfully lacerat- ing the fingers on either side. Indeed, we under- stand the second finger is broken, and that the middle one has since the accident been removed by Mr North, surgeon, whose accustomed skill was conspicuously dis- played in the operation. THE FISHING ASSOCIATION.—In respect to this asso- ciation we understand that his Grace the Duk» of Beaufort has written to Mr John Lloyd, junior., ex- pressing his satisfaction with the manner in which all the regulations have been carried out, and enclosing a cheque of £100 towards the funds, instead of Y,50, the amount of his accustomed subscription. Of course, the satisfactory result adverted to is mainly to be ascribed to the well-directed efforts of the secretary, Mr Lloyd, and Mr Bonnel Bishop, the solicitor, both of whom have obviously laboured with zeal and efficiency in the pro- secution of their duties. We have heard it said that an Act, having for its object the protection of trout, after the manner of salmon, would be a useful measure. CR1CKHOWELL.—PETTY SESSIONS.—These sessions were held on Friday, before T. Davies, Esq., and W. Parry, Esq.—Mary Brooks v. John Jones, Cwmddu.— Complainant is a married woman, and has been pre- viously convicted of obtaining goods under false pre- tences. On the 14th inst. defendant went to her house, and committed an indecent assault.—Defendant was fined X2 and Us costs.—James Smith, and Thomas Brown, tramps, were charged with vagrancy.—Sentenced to seven days' imprisonment, with hard labour. THE VOLUNTEERS.—The Volunteers attended divine service at the parish church on Sunday, when the Rev. John Evans, B.D., preached to them an excellent ser- mon, from Psalms 37, v. 39, But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord." The officers in attendance were Sir J. Bailey, Bart., (Lieutenant,) Major G wynne, and Capt. Hotchkis.
At the Central Criminal Court on Tuesday, the indict- ment against Franz Muller for the murder of Mr Briggs was submitted to the grand jury, and at three o'clock they entered the court, and announced that they had found a true bill. The trial commenced on Wednesday morning, and is expected to last two or three days. The news from Calcutta by the overland mail is only two days later than that received by the Bombay mail, and is quite unimportant. From China we have details of the great naval preparations being made by the foreign powers to force the inland sea of Japan, and some account of the capture of Hoochow by the Im- perialists. The Emperor Napoleon left Paris on Wednesday to visit the Czar at Nice. The Paris press is occupied in discussing the Ministerial statement at the opening of the Italian Parliament, and the dispatches, so far as their contents are yet known, of M. Nigra. The semi- official papers show much soreness at the way in which their interpretation of the convention, as it respects Rome, has been upset by the Government explanations. Our correspondent says that he has reason to believe that the number of men required for the French army, and being provided for in the estimates now preparing at the Ministry of State, is 415,000. This number is the same as that of last budget. THE NARROW GAUGE AND SOUTH WALES RAILWAY. -We are glad to hear that a highly influential and enterprising firm in this county have proposed to lay down a third rail on the South Wales Railway from Swansea to Newport, for the purpose of communicating with the Narrow Gauge system, in the event of the Great Western Railway Company declining to carry out so obvious and so necessary an accommodation for the development of the great resources of this district. Wo are sure that all the leading firms interested in the prosperity of South Wales will give their warmest sup- port to the spirited gentlemen who are promoting so great an undertaking, which has been so often agitated but never pressed home upon the Great Western Company with that power which appears now likely to be applied. Hitherto, the policy of the Great Western Railway Company has been, not to develop their own magnificent property, but to do their utmost in opposing the various railway projects in North and South Wales, which had for their object the development of the vast mineral resources of the Principality. No doubt the great moving cause of all this will be found in the word guage." This has hitherto been the great stumbling- Iblock of the company, and the true secret of all the opposition maintained at so ruinous a cost to the share- holders. Let u-s hope that a policy that has proved so expensive and disastrous, is now at an end. If the Great Western are really desirous of fostering the carrying trade of the Welsh districts—and why should they not ? —their course is plain, not to endeavour to stem the current that has set in favour of the Narrow Gauge, but to go with the tide, and at once inaugurate a new era, by laying down a narrow guage rail on all their lines, where the mineral resources and geographical features of the country warrant it. It is evident that, sooner or later, this must be done in Wales, as the mineral traffic on this division forms so important an item, if the Great Western Company mean to hold their own. This is a policy that materially affects the future of the Great Western. Doubtless it cannot be carried out without vast expense but, on the other hand, the increases of traffic would be enormous, and soon recompence the company for their outlay. Nor is this all. The company would then be in a position successfully to compete with all their rivals, to impart solidity to their property; and thus be in a position, not only to meet all future en- croachment, but to enhance the value of their splendid property, to an extent little dreamt of at present.—Cam- brim.

GREAT STORM IN SCOTLAND. | Scotland has been visited with a severe storm and floods in some of the northern counties. On Wednesday the works at the new harbour at Wick were seriously damaged, the wooden piles being snapped like the twig* and iron clasps twisted, and large blocks of stone carried away. The injury is estimated at about 17,000. There were no boats out. The floods of tho Findhorn, Spey, Lossie, and other rivers have not been accompanied, it would seem, with any serious mischief, though a series of accidents were probably prevented at Rothesglen, near Elgin, where a pari; of the railroad was swept away. Here Mr. Hay, a miller, gallantly volunteered to warn the trains and stood out exposed to the storm for some hours with his red flag. Not many cases of loss of boats are recorded, but there is a sad one in the Laurel of Portessie, which has been picked up empty off White- hills. Her crew consisted of nine men, six of them brothers. On Saturday night and Sunday morning Edinburgh was visited by a hurricane. The thoroughfares were nearly deserted, exeept by cabs and omnibuses and those persons whom business compelled to turn out made their way along the streets at great hazard and risk of injury. Slates, stones, and chimney-cans, wrenched from theirpositions by the force of the hurricane, were hurled tiolently into the streets, and some naraow escapes to pedestrians occurred. A man named Robert M'Neill Was blown down while carrying home two small mat- tresses which he had made, and was killed on the spot, his forehead having struck the ground so violently as to produce concussion of the brain. In many parts of the city where new buildings were being erected, the wooden sheds and scaffoldings were torn down by the strength of the wind and blown about the streets, to the injury of neighbouring property. Trees were up- jooted, and branches scattered far and wdc by the action of the storm and in the suburbs much injury was done to gardens and stackyards. Considerable dam- age was done to the roof of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Jhapel, Broughton-street, in consequence of a large stone cross, which formed part of the outward ornament of that ecclesiastical edifice, being blown down. Dur- ing Saturday night and Sunday a good many people who had been injured were conveyed to the Royal Infirmary, but no very serious case was reported. Throughout the whole time that the hurricane lasted it was accompanied by continuous and lashing showers of rain. The force of the water was such as to cause small landslips, and in some of the streets the ground was undermined and fell in, creating great holes, peculiarly dangerous to vehicles. From Leitb, Greenock, and Dunbar accounts of shipwrecks have been received, but the loss was chiefly confined to small craft, and the destruction of life has been comparative- ly small. The gale was also severely felt all Friday and Saturday on the coasts of Yorkshire and Northum- berland. At Shields the crew of the Elbe were gal- lantly saved by a lifeboat, which, however, failed in boarding a Danish schooner, the crew of which were eventually got off by a rocket. Another vessel having stranded, some Tyne boatmen undertook to perform an act of heroism which is fairly entitled to be placed among the many gallant deeds of Tyno watermen and Tyne pilots:— They carried a small pleasure boat, named the Cali- fornia, over the rocks to the Spanish Battery, and having launched her among the breakers, Edward Fry Wil- liam Fry, his son; James Fiy, his nephew; William Ferguson, and Edward Tavaner, manned her and pulled her out to the shipwrecked crew. They got alongside the ship in safety, and took five of the hands and a little boy seven years of age, a son of the master's, off the ship, and landed them on the rocks, whence the poor fellows were removed to the Bath Hotel, and well taken care of The boatmen then went off a second time for the captain and mate, but they declined to leave the vessel at the time. The weather, however, began to get worse and the sea more violent, and the three Frys again pulled off a third time, and pursuaded the master and mate to come ashore lest the vessel should break up, and they got them into the boat. But the sea had increased so much by this time that they durst not attempt to land at Tynomouth lest the boat should be swamped, and they pulled with the two men to the Low Lights in Shields Harbour, where they landed them in safety. The two seamen they thus saved were landed in a wet and somewhat exhausted i j state. They were immediately taken to the Half Moon Inn jj„ the lifeboat-men, and were furnished with dry r.?*?- and an ample supply of hot tea and other comfortable refreshments. The conduct of the Frys in risking their lives in a small boat in their successful and persistent attempts to save the ship's crew after all other means had failed is beyond all praise. The Mayor of TynemOuth and other influential gentlemen are mak- ing a subscription for them. At Berwick the Tweed was filled with agricultural produce trees, turnips, and other crops covering its i ^e" To these disasters must be added a most painful face. To these dis, fa7 .fc which took place on Saturday, near Boar Hi^g four and a half mile to the eastward of St: ?j.?g: About noon a brig was observed to be okayed with apparent little chance of extricating herself from her dangerous position, considering the fearful gale and the tremendous sea. The St. Andrew's lifeboat waS got ready, and a man on horseback was sent express to Crail (ten miles) for the rocket apparae tus. The vessel, the Napoleon, struck on a point of rock at dead low water, an d though the spectators could approach within fifty or sixty yards of the ship, it was impossible to render any assistance on account of the tremendous surf and wind sweeping away all the buoys and lines thrown by the crew of the ship. The rocket nnnnrntus arrived, but all attempts to throw a line on board failed- After that a salmon coble was sent for, in the desperat hope of picking up a stray man from the wreck, but it arrived just as it got dark, and at six o'clock the vessel had entirely disappeared, with all on board, eight ill number, At Buckie, twenty-six of the ablest fishermen have perished out at sea during this fearful gale.
r- -o -r,C" A BRISTOL COMMERCIAL ATTEMPTING SUICIDE.—Mr J M. Teesdale writing to the Times of Thursday, states that during the passage of tho Aquila from Jersey to Weymouth on Tuesday, and when off Port- land the cry was raised of a man overboard. The man (writes Mr Teesdale) had thrown himself from the steamer's taffrail, and he appeared to be swimming and struggling for life, which a few moments before he bad himself sought to destroy. The steamer was so skilfullybacked as to accompany a boat which had been lowered, sufficiently near to enable the captain from the superior height of the ship to direct her precise course, and in less than ten minutes the man was picked up. lIe proved to be a commercial traveller connected with a Bristol firm. From Mr Teesdale's own observation, he was undoubtedly in a state of delirium when taken out of the water. On the Aquila reaching Weymouth he was given in charge to the police by Capt. Falle, for an attempt at self-destruction, the Packet Company at the same time communicating with his employers. Great creclit is due to the captain and crew, for the manner in which they acted on the occasion. 1:AKEE ATROCITIES. A Virginian lady, whose; house was ransacked and burnt down by some Yankee, raiders, in her description of the affair, S,-tys.-Il I was reaching to the top of a press, getting down some house linen, when a demon took a large scrap-bag and two cambric wrappers and set them on fire just under me. I saw my danger, and sprang over to save my Ife, though now I feel the effects of the heated flame. One of them swore I should not take from burning house my dear little boy Charlie, who was asleep, because they said he would grow up to be a rebel. I pushed by the man, and told him as soon as ho was large enough I would put a gun in his hands and tell him of all we had suffered, and if he did not fight with an unequalled bravery he would not be my son. The last time I was in the house I seized by box of jewellery a man, or ra- ther a devil, jerked it from me, and scattered the contents, on the floor. I caught up one of my diamond rings, the bracelet sister C. gave me, the children's bracelets, and several other things, when the wretch seized me and got them from me In less than fifteen minutes the flames had enveloped the whole house. The labours of father and mother for thirty-three years were destroy- ed in fifteen minutes. When the flames burst from every part of our dear comfortable home, my darling mother's reason gave way. For twenty-four hours she was a raving maniac. She fainted away time after time, and after she became sensible it would have touched a heart of stone to have witnessed her sorrow."
THE CANADIAN CONFEDERATION. By the American mail we are informed that the Con- vention assembled at Quebec on the 10th instant has agreed to the project of a Confederation of the whole of the provinces forming British North America. The intelligence will be received with satisfaction by the English public, inasmuch as, if the proposal be I fairly and soundly carried out, it affords some prospect of relief from the apprehension as regards the future of Canada, from which attentive observes of American affairs cannot be wholly free. The consolidation of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Canadas must give a political strength to tho whole which could not belong to them in their present state. It may be almost said that up to the present time their political relations with each other were no closer than if they owed allegiance to any different sovereigns. Under the system which now seems likely to be cairied out we may hope that, for purposes of defence and the preser- vation of their integrity, the inhabitants of the whole of British North America will form one State, and that an attack upon any one of them will be repelled by the strength and manhood of the whole. 6 But while we must regard with all satisfaction a step in itself politically sound, we shall be disappointed if events do not warrant us in looking upon it as an assurance that each of the colonies will accompany it with an increased development of its own individual strength. As against an invasion from the Federal States an United British North America will possess just the same physical strength as its component parts do now. Without vigorous pre- paration against attack, the provinces will not be a man or a musket stronger in political union than they are in their present disjointed condition. The British North American federation, after all, will be Canada, Nova, Scotia, and New Brunswick, and nothing mure. Tts physical resources can no more be increased by a new political classification than can its territorial limits, and if among the earliest steps taken by the united provinces there be not a project well organised and faithfully carried out for the defence of the whole, one of the chief objects in which they and the people of England arc deeply interested will not have been at- tained. We are ready to do our part, but if they do not perform theirs also, it is clear that ours will be of little avail for their protection. It is really their business more than ours. To us the contingency to be provided against would be a moral blow, to them it would be a grave calamity; and the Canadians have but to look across their own frontier for abundant evidence of the fact. It is satisfactory to learn that they do recognise it, and that the incentive of self-interest is added to that of a regard for the traditions which belong to us and to them in common, and to the feeling of attach- ment to the parent State which we believe exists, & which we know, on our part, is not undeserved. "Ye have a right to ask a country with a population of two millions and a half, and ajrevenue not far short of the same number of pounds sterling, to do something at least of that which it would have to do for its own defence were it an independent State. We do not ask it to maintain a navy, or even a regular army, but we have a right to ask that the Canadians should so organize and discipline their own physical strength, that in a crisis it would expand into a military force of respectable proportions and reasonable efficiency, as a support to what must always be our comparatively small imperial garrison. As yet Canada has not done this in earnest. In the very comprehensive and minute survey of affairs which he took the other day, Lord Stanley said that we should give help to the Canadians if they helped themselves. The noble lord refrained from saying what we ought to do in case they failed to perform their portion of the duty. We are equally unwilling to anticipate that con- tingency. We desire rather to look hopefully to the future, and to expect a development of the physical re- sources of the different North American States, to which the proposed federation will give the moral strength and advantage of a political union.-Globe.
The Vienna journals announce that a curious trial is about to take place in Austria. The accused was em- ployed in the Ministry of Finance, and he is charged with embezzlement to a considerable extent, not of money, but of cigars and postage stamps. It is said that he has abstracted three millions of common cigars, one million of Cubas, 25,000 Cabanos, and 1,200,000 packets of ordinary tobacco for smoking. He also took postage stamps to the amount of 50,000f. The examination ordered by the Poor Law Board into the conduct of the Rev. Mr Hillyard, chaplain of the Norwich Workhouse, was concluded on Wednesday. The Poor-law guardians had ordered that Mr Hillyard should not be admitted into thelunion, on account of his adopting the views of Brother Ignatius; and in the ex- amination, which took place, and which lasted two days, a good deal of curious light was thrown on the proceed- ings of these Anglican monks at Norwich and elsewhere. Sir John Walsham, who conducted the inquiry, promised to make up his report on an early day. A very numerous deputation, introduced by Lord Cal- thorpe, and composed mainly of the Evangelical Al- liance, on Wednesday presented a memorial to Earl Russell at the Foreign Office, inviting his attention to certain recent proceedings of the Turkish Government at Constantinople, which they allege constitute a viola- tion of religious liberty. Earl Russell, in reply, ex- plained that the subject was one of considerable difficulty as to the facts, :the Turkish Government alleging that the steps they had taken were the result of indiscretion on the part of the missionaries in performing their ser- vices in places where they were likely to cause a distur- bance of the public peace. He could not agree in the view the Turkish authorities took, that the converts must not communicate their convictions to others lest they should induce them also to become Protestants. That was a natural exercise of their religion in which the Hatti Humayour said they should not be molested. Whilst they firmly insist on that agreement being car ried out it behoved those who went out as missionaries to treat the national religion with that respect with which they would expect to have their own treated by people of all creeds living in this country. He under- stood the three men who had been imprisoned for em- bracing the Protestant faith had been released, but he would make inquiry as to the statement that banishment followed their release from prison. THE ENGLISH AXD WELSH PRESBYTERIANS.—At the meeting of the Synod of the United Presbyterian church held at Albioi Chapel, Mooi fields, London, last week, two deputations were received from the Calvinistic Methodist Association of North and South Wales, and the synod wis addressed by the Rev. Mr Davies, of Pwlheli, and the Rev. Mr Taylor, of Bootle, near Liver- pool, who gave an account of the progress of the Welsh Calvinistic Church, both in North and South Wales. The Rev. Mr Williams, of Swansea, next addressed the synod, and thought it would be very desirable that the Presbyterian Church and the Welsh Calvinists should be amalgamated, if it were possible that they could get over the difficulties which stood in the way. Such meetings as these were thought little of in Wales unless they had about 30 sermons. "This was necessary in Wales. If he were to go home and tell the people he had visited this synod, he was certain the first question that nine out of ten of his brethren would ask him would be, How many times did you preach ? What sort of a sermon did Dr Edmond preach r" and so on. (Laughter.) Speaking of the Welsh language, he said the English supposed that it was fast dying out, but there were districts where the people would speak Welsh 150 years hence, and some of them hoped to the end of the world. (Laughter.) A Scotch friend of his sug- gested that the business meetings in Wales should be transacted in the English language, just as they were in the Highlands of Scotland. He told his friend that the people of Wales would never submit to that, and they would not. They would have all their meetings conducted in their own language, for out of about 900 chapels, there were only fifty where the English lan- guage was used;The deputations were then nomi- nated for North and South Wales, and also the general assembly to be held in Liverpool. STRANGE STORY.—A letter from St. Petersburg men- tions an extraordinary affair which lately happened in the town of Orel. A great local landowner had a large sum (43,000 silver roubles) to receive through the police of that town. On applying for the amount he was told that the money could not be handed over to him unless he presented the office with 5,000 silver rou- bles. He refused and immediately reported the case to St. Petersburg, and the money was paid over to him. But on the evening of the same day, as he was quietly smoking in his study, a loud ring was heard at the bell. The servant on opening the door was instantly pinioned, and four men, their faces covered with black crape rushed into the room. The landowner asked them what they wanted they plainly told him he must hand over his 43,000 roubles. With the greatest coolness he went over to his strong box, opened it, seized a revolver which was laid upon the top shelf, and shot two of the robbers dead, the other two immediately taking to their heels. He then sent for assistance, the police &c., and on the crape being removed from the faces of the dead men they were recognised as the head of the police and his secretary. The body of the former has been removed to Nice for interment. THE ROMAN QUESTION.—The Turin correpondent of The Times, in a letter in to-day's second edition, written on the 23d, the day before the opening of the Italian Parliament, takes rather a gloomy view of the situation He anticipates, in agreement with all the other reports that the convention c; will be approved of by a large ma- jority, but he represents that this majority will not be obtained because those who compose it have a good opinion of the treaty. They think it bad, and will vote for it merely to prevent greater evils to Italy in the crisis it has been placed in. A senator, Carlo Cardonna has issued a pamphlet setting forth this view. The chief inducement to a good many to vote for the treaty is the transference of the capital—provincial grudges against Turin and the Piedmontese being thereby grati- fied Another ugly feature of the situation is the personal unpopularity of the King, who cannot now go out without a military guard while he used to ride and drive about the capital unattended. The correspondent also states that the number of deaths in the disturbances which arose at the announcement of the treaty is on gocd authority reckoned at 180.

The goods traffic between this ￼ Liverpool, Manchester, and all other parts of the of England and the Midland Counties, was Win?, ? °Pened on Friday last by the Llanelly Railway %r, Paily forwarding two truck loads and two van loads Of e2PPer to Birmingham, for Messrs Sims, Willyams, ii ?"?ll, ??
