Owen Thomas, of Carnarvon, was allowed to invite his friends to the above place for a coursing meeting on the 9th inst. The attendance was numerous and highly respectable, and the hares, as usual, in this favourite coursing gronnd, were plentiful,—as many as 34 being killed. In the evening, the company adjourned to the Eagles Inn, Carnarvon, where Mr. and Mrs. Davies had provided an excellent and substantial dinner. The usual toasts having been duly honoured, the health of Captain Duff, with many thanks for his kindness, was received with cheers. PROFESSOR WHITWORTH.- This very talented gentle- man favoured the town of Carnarvon with one of his matchless entertainments for the benefit of the Militia Band, on Wednesday last, which we are happy to say, being duly appreciated, was rapturously received by a crowded house, consisting of many of the higher classes in the town. On its becoming known that he had ar- rived by the train, a large concourse of people assem- bled round his hotel, and cheered him heartily. The Professor's great liberality in so generously giving gra- tuitous entertainments for the benefit of charities and other deserviug objects, have gained him the esteem of all classes of society, and go where he will into any part of Wales, his name is a talisman, and need only to be mentioned when he begins to reap the fruits of the golden opinion the public so justly entertain of him, and we need not say, at whatever place he makes a re- turn visit to, he is supported in that substantial manner he 80 richly merits.
