ARTILLEHY VOLUNTEERS,—On Saturday afternoon this corps underwent its annual inspection before Co). Lennox, R.A., Commandant of Artillery for the South Wales district, accompanied by his aide-de-camp, Capt. O. Montgomery, C.B., Royal Artillery. The corps, comprising two batteries, numbered about 60 men, ex- clusive of the drum and fife band, and fell in on the arrack Hill, under the command of Caotain E. Cheval- lier, commandant, Captain B. J one?, and Lieutenant J. Riofcardson. The men presented a very clean and soldierly appearance. They were put through several Movements, which were veiy well executed, the march- i!Ig past and the wheeling being especially good. Trey ■^ere then put. through the manual and platoon exer- t'ses, after which the men were marched down to the Western Battery, where tbev went through the great. Sua drill in excellent: style. After the course of drill was concluded, the gallant colonel addressed the corps, saying that he was well pleased with the clean appear-' ance of the men and their equipment, the whole of them being well set up. Their marching past and wheeling "V,(,re good; but some improvement might be made in Vje manual and platoon. Their gun drill was excei- and this was the principal thing in artillery. He therefore, have much pleasure in reporting ^ourably of them to the authorities en account of their ei"ciency in the great gun drill. Three cheers were then gtven for Colonel Lennox and Captain Montgomery. A he corps then marched into the town, and was dis- missed. BRISTOL BANKRUPTCY COURT. MONDAY.—Before Mr Commissioner Hill. Be A: Long y Pembroke-dock, outfitter. Mr B. Alexander (instructed by Mr Goldsmith, from the office of Messrs WhiUinglon and Gribble), opposed on the part of the assignees. Mr E. E. Salmon (from the office of Mr Henderson), supported the bankrupt. The bankrupt stated, in his examination, that he car- ried on business as an outfitter, at Pembroke-dock about two and n-half years ago. He entered into partnership ?n ,°6'5 with a man named Richard Allen, and carried on '"siness under the partnership until the 8th of June last, ben he executed an assignment. He assigned his sepa- rate estate to Messrs Macmaster and Carter for the bene- fit of his creditors, and a similar assignment was execu- ted by Long; and Allen, of all their partnership effects Both assignments fell through, in consequence of the non- assents of the statutory number of creditors. On the 9th of July he was adjudicated bankrupt, and on the 26th of the same month Allen was adjudged bankrupt. His (bankrupt's) account showed creditors against separate estate of £ 0,712, whilst the assets of every description, including property in the hands of creditors, did not ex- Ceed £5,317. leaving a deficiency of £-1:,391. He accoun- ted for his deficiency by saying that there was an allow- ance made from his separate estate of between £2,000 and £3,000 for shipbuilding purposes. Up to within a few days of the execution of his deed of assignment there ^as not an outfitter shop in the town of Milford, which his name as proprietor over the door. The business (If. the shop was carried on by a man named Hodge up to Within eighteen months of his bankruptcy; and Hodges's came was for some time over the door.

A sjnailar transaction took place with reference at another in Llanelly.

He may be indebted for goods ordered for those two houses. He had not received profits from the shops since the transfer. Those shops in spite of the tranBfer, did not belong to him. Hodges and Colliver their acceptances in payment of the stock and Isiness, and not for his accommodation.

He bad received jeteralsums on account of the concern within that period. fe disbursed some portions of the money shortly before "6 business closed in wages, goods supplied, and paid Into the bank. A3r Alexander applied for an adjournment, in order at the bankrupt might file a goods account and a cash oyomrt extending far enough back to embrace the sale o the shops—say six months. th 6 Bankrupt said that six months would not include eRe transactions with the shops. Mr Salmon said they took place nearly two years ago. tu r ^exaader said he wanted accounts of all the hank- s transactions. 18 Honour said that Mr Alexander could have special bujers to special questions, but it would be a heavy t *ndeed upon the bankrupt to require him to do <>?

CARDIGAN. ANNUAL MEETINGS AT Ku.GKRRAN BAPTIST. CHAI KL. -These unnuai meetings weTe held at the Kilgerran Baptist Chapei, on Sunday and Monday, the 15th and 16th instants. On Sunday morning, at 10, Mrs Williams of Llanglofan, preached in English, and the Rev Mr Williams, of the 'auic place, in Welsh. At two in the afternoon the Revs. John Griffiths, of Llandilo, Hnd Davies Price, of Lilaenffos, preached, both in Welsh and at six in the evening Mr and Mrs Williams again preached, both in Welsh. The sermons throughout were uncommonly good, and the congregations crowded, especially at the evening service. The collections made after each service towards liquidating the deht remaining on the chapel, showed a good result. On Monday evening, at seven, the literary meeting was held, when the Rev, E. Thomas, of Bothania, Cardigan, occupied the chair. The admission was through tickets. Mrs Wil- liams, the Rev. J. Griffiths, of Llandilo, and the Rev. T. Wiiliams took part in the proceedings. Towards the close Mr Griffiths, of Penalltfach, handed to the Treasurer a donation of P,5, received from James B. Bowen, Rcq, M.P. for Pembrokeshire, for the benefit of the huildinci fund Mr Griffitbs having expressed sentiments highly complimentary to the hori. member for the county, aaid that he thought there was a direct connection between the state of education and religion in a county, and the honour due to the member for that county; and that there wa-. a close connection between the liberality of the member towards religious objects and the respect, love, and support of his constituents. Granting then that his propositions were well founded, he thought that Mr Bowen was well worthy of the high place he held in the hearts of his supporters. Mr Griffiths concluded by moving that the thanks of this meeting be returned to Mr Boweu for his liberality. After the usual vote of thanks, the proceedings, terminated. _:0.
CORRESPONDENCE. We do not consider ourselves responsible for the opinions and sentiments of' our Correspondents THE NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD OF WALES. SIK,—Perhaps you will kindly allow me, as seere- taty of the late Eisteddfod held at Carmarthen to utter a word of caution to future committees, so that they may avoid the rock against which we have struck, and to cor- rect a few mis-statements which have been made in some of the English papers, more especially with regard to the concerts which took place every evening after the close of the Eisteddfod meetings. On examination of the concert programme, it will be seen that it contains a truly astounding number of pieces of vocal and instrumental foreign music-no less than twenty-five. The remainder of the programme is made up uf English and Welsh music, numbering in the ag- gregate 51 pieces, vocal and instrumental. Of this num- ber there is one Irish song, and a clarionet solo by Mr Lazarus, including two Scotch airs. Of Welsh music there are nine pieces, all of which were sung by the Car- marthen choir, either as opening or closing choruses, or given as instrumental performances by Mr Brinley Richards or Mr John Thomas. Of Welsh voeal music we had two choruses only. This shewa-Freneh, Ger- man, and Italian music 25 pieces, English 40, Irish 1, Scotch 1, Welsh 9, without a single Welsh song Would such a programme as that be tolerated in an? national' gathering in Ireland, Scotland, or England ? And yet, because the Welsh people rebelled against it, and in- sisted upon getting some Welsh music at their 'national' concerts, they have been described in some of the Eng- lish papers as a noisy and ill-mannered clique." I wonder whether a London audience at a national con- cert would submit to a programme which contained ntA a solitary English"song I > Mr Brinley Richards, as a distinguished native of Carmarthen, bad the control of our concerts. I know perfectly well what his reply to this statement wi'.i be, for I have heard him express his sentiments both at the meetings of the Eisteddfod Council and at those of the local comaittee.. He will say, as he said on t'ae plat- form. 4 ifc has been said that anything would da for a I Welabk JEi&teddiad j aad I wished to get rid rA that old saying by producing a programme that would bear the criticism of any 'London audience.' And, to do Mr Brinley Richards justice, he engaged the services o* artistes of good repute, and who, notwithstanding the cries during intervals of Llew,' Llew Llwyvo,' can- not complain of the want of appreciation of their talents, for on the last evening of the concerts they one and all, and by name, received such an ovation at the hands of their Welsh admirers as never greeted their ears before. But between London and Carmarthen Mr Richards fell I-fell as the man did between Jerusalem and Jericho -into evil hands. In endeavouring to produce a pro- gramme thaS would stand the criticism of a highly culti- vated London audience, he entirely forgot the Welsh ele- ment, and the consequence is, not a wonderful success -a success which will render this meeting worthy to b<s remembered,' as be stated on the last day of the Eis- teddfod, but a miserable range of empty benches in the second and third class departments. It may be aaid that the weather had much to do with this but I am pre- pared to say that the weather exercised but an infinitesi- mal influence on the hardy sons of toil, for the drenched condition of the interior of the building and the torrents cfraia that fell outside notwithstanding, there was an array of ladies in the first class which was truly astonish- ing under the circumstances, and had any provision been made in the programme for the 'people' they would have attended not merely in dozens, but in thousands I am not prepared, nor do I wish, to blame Mr Richards for all this. Rather would I say that his local coadjutor fearfully misied,him and Mr Richards in his efforts to avoid Seylla, has plunged the Eisteddfod into Charbydis, simply because his local help was not the tight man in the right place. Speaking in the name of my countrymen, with whose feelings and language and even prejudices I am familiar, I say that Mr Brinle" Richards's programme would have proved highly accept- able had it contained anything like a due proportion of music for the mass. In proof of this it is only neces- sary to refer to the reports whrch have appeared in the London papers, wherein it is said that an 'ill-mannered clique' was in the habit r,f interrupting 'the proceed- ings a dozen times in an evening by vociferatitig I Llew, Ll L, w.' Why did they do this ? Not that tbev did not appreciate Miss Edmonds, Maddme Patey-Whytook, Miss Wynne, Mr Lewis Thomas, Mr Cummings, Mr John Thomas, Mr Lazarus, or Mr Brinley Richards, for those oft-repeated cries were made in the intervals only, and not one of the artistes had cause to complain of the sli g'n t e s t in terr u p t i o n. Llew Llwyfo ha3 been much maligned. Adverse cri- ticism notwithstanding, he was the favourite both with the purely English and the Welsh portions of the au- dience. Ai .i vocalist he may not be equal to ).ir Lexis Thomas or Mr Cummings but. he is the Henry Russell of Wales, and as poet, essay iest, and novelist he has won the highest honours which the Eisteddfod can bestow. Seeing Llew Llwyfo on the platform, and perceiving that Welsh music had been purposely excluded from the programme, the cries of Llew, Llew were uttered and renewed with such vigor by the audience—not a mere clique—on the first evening, that the Chairman of the Council stated that it was a great misfortune that such a man had not been included in the programme. The consequence was that on the following day Mr Brinley Richards apologised to the audience for the omission, and said that with their consent Llew Llwvfo should take part in the evening concerts.' This was received with a terrific burst, of cheering which lasted fully two minutes. That evening Llew Llwyvo sang Simon the Cellarer in Welsa, his efforts evoking. protracted ap- plause; he then sang the same song in English, and for ten minutes afterwards the whole audience joined in the deafening cry of It beinsr impossible to pro- ceed with the programme, Mr Brinley Richards and Llew Llwyvo appeared on the platform together, and the former stating that the latter should sine again in the second part provided the audience would allow the programme to proceed, after a cheer for Mr Brinley Richards, the place became perfectly still. I mention this simply to shew that Llwyv,) is not the man that he is represented in some of the English papers. There arc many better singers, I have no doubt, but no one more popular in "Wales as a vocalist, conductor, or adjudicator. He knows what an audience requires, and he is genernliy prepared to give it. This is the secret of his popularity. The same old cry of Llew, Llew' was repeated on Thursday and Friday evenings. On of the London papers states that ftuch conduct would net be tolerated in any part of England but I should like to know how tho writer of that sentence would deal with an audience of several thousand persons who would have their own way On Friday evening, when there was a perfect Babel of sounds for Llew,' I, as secretary of the Eisteddfod, stood on the tribune in front of the platform, and begged the audience not to renew the call, and, holding a gold watch and chain of the value of 25 guineas in my hand, said that Llew Hwyvo's friends would present him with that gift at the Guildhall that evening. After a hearty burst of three cheers for Llew Llwyvo silence was restored, and the cry was no more renewed. All this noise and confusion was created simply by the studied exclusion of Welsh music from the programme of the concerts of the Welsh National Eisteddfod. Eng- lishmen who have read the reports in the London and other papers may have arrived at a very unjust con- clusirn with regard to the character of Welshmen, but it is hoped that this explanation will serve the double pur- pose of removing any misappiohension which may have lodged in the English mind, and of setting future committees on their guard against the rock upon which we have split. Apologising for the length of my letter, I am, Sir, your obedient servant, EPWAKD JosEm. Secretary.

In Italv there are many imbeciles, many Jesuits, many acous- tOEjed to sacrifice on the altar of their belly but it is consolatory to be able to say there are also many brave men of San Martmo, many heroic bersagliera of the King of Italy, many soldiers of the first artillery in the world, many descendants of the 300 Fabii, and a van- guard of the 1,006 of Marsala, who, if I mistake not nave by this time engendered 100,000 young men who fear only to divide into too many shares tho memorable glory of clearing Italy of foreign mercenaries and ne- cromancers. As to resources, Italy has ever had the misfortune to be rich when foreign armies were to be quartered; Among her rich citizens there are not want- ing patriots who will soon, I doubt not, shower upon you with prodigality their handsome offerings.

THE ALTON MURDERER. A paragraph copied from the Law Times has been going the rounds of the press, suggesting that the young man named James Longhurst recently executed for the murder of a little girl at Shere, in Surrey, last year, was innocent, and that in all likelihood Frederick Baker, now lying in Winchester Gaol, charged with the late murder at Alton, is the real culprit. On examination this appears to be a mere random supposition based upon a very imperfect knowledge of the facts connected with the murder at Shere. It is stated by the writer that the whole of the evidence upon which Longhurst was exe- cuted was slight, and that his identity was by no means satisfactorily established. No such belief exists in the locality which was tbe scene of the murder. When the little girl Jane Sax was raised from the ground by a man named Edsar, the first attracted to the spot by her crie3, she pointed to Longhurst, who was running away, as the 'boy' who had attacked her. A short time after she again identified him in the surgery of Mr Capron, at Shere, and she identified him for the third time when her dying deposition was taken at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. But the facts which tended to crimi- Longhurst did nrt rest wholly upon identification. When apprehended there was bluod upon his hands, and also upon a clasp-knife found in his possession. He lay in gaol some months previous to taking his trial, yet in all that time he never once attempted to deny the crime with which be was charged, but made several remarks which might be interpreted aa almost tacit confessions. When told that his victim was dead, be asked what would be done to him,, and upon being asked, in turn, if he knew what was the usual punishment for murder, he said he did, and that it was banging. Subsequently he toid a constable who bad charge of him that he did not think that punishment would be his, because the little giil had lived so Ion, after the injuries. There can be no doubt as to his guilt, and none as to his having been. a perfectly accountable being,, although of a low order of intelligence. On the other hand, nothing but the acci- dental similarity of the Alton and tbe Shere murders can be found to suggest that Baker was the murderer in both case; and this unjustifiable supposition to ay be at once dismissed by the unequivocal testimony of numerous persons that on the day of the Shere murder the present wretched inmate of Winchester gaol was miles away from the spot. — Times. ■■ FUNERAL OF SERGEANT BRETT. The Manchester Courier gives the following account of Sergeant Brett's funeral, which took place on Saa- day. Including the persons who crowded the street? as the procession passed, the number of spectators mnst have been between 40,000 and 50,000. At about two o'clock a procession was formed in Oldham- road, and proceeded to the house at which the deceased lived, in Wilson-street, Garrett-street, Old- bdrn-rofid, whence it started about half-past two, headed by eight or nine carriages, containing the city onicials—members of the Watch Committee and of the Corporation. Next followed members of the fire brigade on one of their engines, driven by the some man who drove the police-van in which the murder was committed. The police band came next, playing the Dead March in 'Saul.' Four divisions of the Manchester police and the Sulford Borough police force were strongly represented, After the police came the hearse, flanked by three con- stables on either side, and then five mourning coaches containing members of the deceased's family and many of his friends. After them, another detach- ment of police, and, lastly, about twenty private carriages. The procession extended a distance of about a quarter of a mile, and arrived at the cemetery about four o'clock. The whole of the route was crowded, and also the cemetery ground, from the gates to the chapel at the farther end. At the entrance to the chapel the procession was met by the Rev. Stanford Harries, incumbent of St. Barnabas's, at which church the deceased had, we understand, been a constant and most regular attendant for the last twenty years. At the cemetery the procession was joined by the Mayor of'Manchester (R. Neill, Esq), who accompanied the corporation and members of the family into .the cemetery chapel, where the first part of the beautiful and impressive service of the Church of England was read by Mr Harries. The coffin, which was of oak, was then conveyed to the grave, where the service was concluded by the rev. gentleman before-named. Over the grave, at the conclusion of the service, the band played Luther's Hymn. The sorrowing relations and friends took a last farewell view at the grave, and one of them in. particular, a daughter of the deceased, was very deeply affected. The grave is situated on the left-hand side of the cemetery walk, near to the chapel, and not far distant from where Taylor's children, who were murdered by their parents a few years back, are buried. 0 DEFALCATION BY A BANK CLERK.—A young man named George Little, a teller in the branch of the National Provincial Bank, has disappeared from. North Shields, and a warrant has been issued for his apprehension. He is reported to be a defaulter to above £ 2,000. THE ATLANTIC CABT/E Or 18.68.—Captain Sherard Osborn presents his compliments to the editor and ia happy to say that by telegrams just received he learns that the repairs of the 1866 Atlantic cable has been effected at a distance of 88 miles off Heart's Content, in spite of severe gales, which have considerably de- layed the operations of the staff under Sir Samuel Canning.-Standard. CANNIBALISM -Under the above mentioned head- ing the South London Press has for two weeks given circulation to a report that a student of one of the London hospitals had been guilty of the abominable action of cooking and eating a portion of a corpse. Although we regret to find that there is truth in the statement of the disgusting act having occurred, we are happy to be able to affirm, on the best authority, that no member of the body of medical students- who are gentlemen both by birth and education- had anything to do with the matter. The truth ap- pears to be that a young assistant in the chymical laboratory at St Thomas's Hospital either did eat, or out of bravado, said he had cooked and eaten, a small piece of human flash. We need hardly say that the authorities at St Thomas's have taken im- mediate steps to exclude the youth in question from the hospital premises for the future, and have ex- pressed in the strongest terms their sense of his foolish and indecent behavjour.-The Lancet. FATAL GUN ACCIDENT.-On Friday an inquest was held at Honiton, before Mr Cox, coroner, on the body of Sahiuel Bromhead, Esq, who met his death the previous evening under very favourable circum- stances. Deceased was out shooting rabbits on Round Ball Farm, being accompanied by Mr Hew- lings, a clerk in one of the Honiton banks. W hilst so engaged Mr Hewlings asked for some powder and shot, and Mr Bromhead proceeded to load the gun. The latter, while so doing, rested the but of his own. gun on his left foot. He put some powder and also a card into Mr Hewlings gun, and the latter began to Tarl\it down. Mr Bromhead then put his right hand into his coat pocket and took hold of the shot pouch, when his double barrelled gun, which was loaded, went off, the shot passing through his head. Dc Mayne was called in. He stated that the gun-shot had blown away the anterior part of the brain, and part of the nose and parietal bones. Death must have happened within five or six minutes after the accident. The shot must have been almost perpen- dicular. The jury found a verdict of 4 Accidental death,'

The trousers and waistcoat, and braces, which I received from the prisoner, I gave to the police. Cross-examined by prisoner: When you offered the "lings to me I went home for the 5a.
