TOWYN. EXTRAORDINARY SHOT.—David Lloyd, Esq., of Cilw- gan, near Newtown, shot a Cormorant, on Friday last, with a rifle, at 900 yards distance, near the Dysynni ri- ver. SOIREE.—A soire4 was held oil Friday evening last, at Neptune Hall. The attendance was not So large as was ,It easterl y win d s, expected, in consequence of the high easterly winds, which prevailed during the afternoon and evening. The viands were of first rate quality, aud laid out with great taste, which reflects no small degree of credit on Mrs. Jones. Music, singing, and innocent games, were the order of the evening, and all present were very highly delighted. ACCIDF.NT.-On Friday, a woman named Roberts, was run over by some small trucks on the Towyn and Taly- llyn Railway. It appears she was riding on the trucks, and when in the act of getting off, her foot slipped, and she fell oil to the rails, fortunately there was no locomo- tive attached to the trucks She is very much bruised, but no bones hroken. CHORCH WALL.—The west end of our Church waU has for some time been in the most dilapidated state, and since the erection of the Market Hall it has beeu more exposed to view. The Churchwardens were unable to repair it, there heing no rate for the purpose. Some time ago a vestry meeting was called, and the voluntary principle called into operation, but the amount collected on that scale, did not amount to .€30, not three-fourths of the sum required to build it as it ought to he done. Some of the managing committee called on J.Soden, Esq., when he was at Towyn last week, and he kindly offered to make up the difference, provided the space from the Market Railways to College Green, was pallisaded on the top of the wall. This is to bo done, and the contract has been let to G. Ashford, biulder, of this town, who, we have 110 (lotibt, will carry it out in a. moat satisfactory manner. It will be a decided improvement when done, and we trust the remaining wall around the town, will have pallisading placed on the top, at no distant period. TIIK DRAINAGE,—Some of the massive pipes for the outfall of the Dysynni vailey drainage, have arrived here from Glasgow. They came by rail all the way, and weigh about four tons each. Mr. John Wooley has taken the contract with fixing those nearest the sea with piles. Operations will commence forthwith. This immense track of land will take from three to five years, before the work is completed.
