LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. I funeral of THE LATE I M R LOR T PHILLIPS. TIIE funeral of this much lamented gentleman I Z, took place yesterday morning at 12 o'clock. Long J before the appointed hour, there were many hun- a ¡ dreds of persons assembled, including repreaenta- | i tives of nearly all the leading families of the county r and also the tradesmen from different localities. I Haverfordwest, of which place the deceased gentle- man was a native, was strongly represented, as was also Pembroke and its neighbourhood. The procession was organized with difficulty owing to the immense concourse of people present, and had it been arranged in the customary order wou'd have extended much more than the whole of the distance between Lawrenny Castle and the parish Church: The road sides were thronged by well dressed people, who were unable for want of space to take part in the procession, which was estimated to include upwards of three hundred gentlemen. The coffin was borne to its final resting place by twelve workmen on the estate, who had been selected for this last office by the deceased gentle- man himself some time before his death, The coffin (which was constructed by Messrs. Lewis and Reynolds, of Haverfordwest,) was of oak, covered with black cloth, the furniture being of brass. The plate, which was also of brass, con- tained the simple inscription George Lort Phillips, Esq, M.P. for the County of Pembroke, died October 30th, 1866. Aged 55.' The funeral was one of the most solemn and painful scenes ever witnessed, and there were few who were not moved to tears when the last sad rites were being I.. performed. In Haverfordwcst the bells of the different churches tolled at intervals during the morning, and the places of business in the principal streets were closed as a tribute of respect to the memory of the late county member. PRESENTATION TO MR. JOHN LEWIs.On Tuesdav week the friends of Mr John Lewis, manager of Messrs. Walters' bank, at Haverfordveest, invited him to a breakfast at the Lord Nelson Hotel, Milford, for the purpose of presenting a very handsome testimonial con- sisting of a magnificent silver tea and coffee service, and several volumes of valuable books. INSPECTION OF VOLUNTEER Amrs.-The War Office has issued a circular to the commandants of Volunteer corps, calling upon them to periodically inspect the government arms in the hands of the members. The practice which has been in vogue with regard to arms is one which requires supervision. In most corps where men have made themselves efficient they are allowed to keep the arms apportioned to them in their own houses, and the result generally has been found advantageous, as the volunteers have the opportunity thus afforded them of private drill, they are saved the necessity of going to their head quarters when they de- sire to go shooting, and the rifle is kept in good order. The privilege has been abused in two corps, as several rifles were discovered out of the country to which they bad been supplied, and in the hands of persons who had no connection with the volunteers. Hence this ordered inspection, and the War Office demands to be informed of all missing arms. All persons, Volunteers or not, keeping the arms after an order has been made to bring them to bead-quarters are liable to be severely pun- ished. | LITTLE HAVKN.—On Thursday evening, the 25th ult, | j the Wesleyans held their annual meeting at this place, in | 1 aid of Foreign Missions, The chair wa< occupied by Mr I f T.

Beynon, Mr Joseph IV? a ry church, Dr 1 Brown, Mr Harford, and Mr Wbittow. Before entering 1 on the business the newly-elected members made the j 1 necessary declaration prescribed by the Municipal Cor- j I poration Act. The meeting was convened for the purpose 1 of taking into consideration the case and opinion of Mr | I Poland on the Sanitary Act, 1866, and other acts, and to 1 imake such orders as might be neeesssary. After some | discussion, it- was ordered that the Town Clerk bi in- I structed to prepare and publish the necessary notice of | the intention of the Council to apply to Parliament in | I the next session for an act to remove certain difficulties 1 which the Sanitary Act, 1866, had created in carrying out | the present Water Commissioners' Act, and for the pur- | I pose of enabling the Council as the Sewer authority to | I supply the town with water and drainage, and for the | I various other purposes discussed at the meeting, and to 1 1 take the other steps necessary for obtaining such Act. I 1 The meeting then adjourned. 1 I THE FIFrrr OF NOVEMBER.—An attempt was made by | I some of the small boys of the town, assisted by a few of | 1 larger growth, to celebrate the anniversary of Gunpowder | | Plot, but owing to the active interference of the police, 1 1 the attempt was only partially successful, the display | I being limited to those portions of the streets where the | 'Blues' were invisible. Some lighted tar barrels were | stealthily introduced into the streets, but were promptly 1 extinguished by the police, and fireballs were thrown 1 and crackers exploded when tne operation could be per- | formed without fear of detection. Mr Superintendent i Cecil met with a severe hurt by being struck on the § head by a tar barrel, which was thrown among the | crowd. The injury was purely accidental, as the person | who threw the cask was not aware at the time that it | would have struck any person, still less the superin- | tendent of Police, whom he did not abserve till after the | accident. Mr Ceci!, fortunately, wore at the time a strongly ft would have struck any person, still less the superin- | tendent of Police, whom he did not abserve till after the | accident. Mr Ceci!, fortunately, wore at the time a strongly ft made hat, which greatly broke the force of the blow, but g which however was completely cut through. This un- 1 looked for event abated the ardour of the boisterous jjj spirits: the blood-on the face of the superintendent o! 1 | police aroused in their minds fears of future punishment, | I and they disappeared with great expedition and equal 1 i cautiousness. | I h I I ELECTION OF TOWN COUNCILLOR?. | | The election of members for the Town Council took | | place on Thursday at the Market Hall.

Phelps, and Captain Child. | NON-PAYMENT OF RATES. | Ann Williams, of Milford, was summoned by Charles | Smith, collector to the Improvement Commissioners, for | non-payment of rates.

James Jenkins, a farm servant, was charged with de- | sertiug the service of his master, William Phillips. | The case was settled out of Court, the defendant con- | senting to return to his service. I NEGLECTING TO MAINTAIN A WIFE. 1 Edward James Phillips, who was described as a 'rope- I maker, a carpenter, mason, slaughterer, and several g other trades,' was summoned by Mr D. J. Vaustlian, one § of the parish officers of Fishguard, with neglecting to § maintain his wife. I In reply to the charge, I The defendant said that his wife was welcome to share I with him what lie had. She had left him of her own 1 accord, and he had given her a great deal of money since he 1 was last, summoned before the magistrates. If she returned I to him, she should have her share of his fortunes: if he had little she must be content with little, and when he had much she should have much. Mr Vaughan said that the defendant's wife had left him for many years, and he did not think she would return to him again. She was now chargeable to the parish. The Clerk asked the defendant if he was willing to allow her a sum of money per week for her separate maintenance. The defendant said he could not do so, as he some weeks earned nothing: he could get no work at times. If she returned to him, it would make his home com- fortable, and he would do what he could to maintain her. The Clerk said that he was afraid from what he knew of the defendant by his attendance at the petty sessions that his babits were not calculated to make his home comfortable. The defendant said that when he worked in the slaughter houses for the butchers he was given beer, and not money. The Clerk suggested that the case should be adjourned for a month, to tnable the defendant to make some ar- rangement for the maintenance of his wile, The caw was then adjourned.
