MACHYNLLETH. DISORDERLY TRAMPS.—On Saturday morning two tramps, giving the names of Jane Smith and James Cam. eron, were brought up before the Rev. J. G. Davies, at Cemmes, charged with tearing up their clothes the pre- vious night, in the vagrant wards at Machynlleth Work- house. They were each committed for seveu days, with hard labour. FATAL ACCIDENT,-An accident, which we regret to say has since terminated fatally, occurred on Thursday evening to Mr John Evans, merchant, Morben. Mr Evans was returning home from Machynlleth about nine o'clock, and it is supposed that when near Uhiwlas he fell from his horse and sustained serious inj uries to his head. He was conveyed hame and medical assistance sent for from Machynlleth, but death terminated hia sufferings at about five o'clock on Friday. Deceased, who was well known and highly respected, has left a widow but no family. -On Saturday afternoon an en. quiry into the cause of death was held at Morben-issa, by Dr D. K. Pugh, and a jury of which Mr Griffitli Griffiths, Tynyhir, was foreman.—William Williams de- posed that he lived at Derwenlas, and that about ti 30 ott Thursday evening he saw a horse galloping through the village without a rider. Knowing that it was Mr Evans's horse, he stopped it and ro le it back abng the road, and about a quarter of a mile distant from Derwenlas he found Mr Evans lying on his back in an unconscious state. He raised him into a sitting posture, and. a man and a little girl coming up, he sent them for assistance, and Dr James, a gentleman at preseut on a visit to Mr Davies, of Rhiwlas, came. The deceased, after the ap- plication of remedies, rallied a little, and was conveyed to an adjoining house, where Dr Lloyd and Dr Pugh attended hiw-Dr Lloyd said he found that deceased was suffering from iiij uries to the head, and was in a dying condition when he (witness) was called in. The inj uries were apparently caused by a fall, and were sufficient to cause death—The jury retured a verdict ot Accidental death."
