THE RECENT TREMENDOUS HURRICANE— Storms, so fearful in their character and so distressing in their consequences as those above-alluded to, have not visited the coasts of the United Kingdom for many years past; hundreds of seamen have thereby been thrown in mis- fortune without the requisite clothing for protecting them- selves from the weather, the means of gaining food and lodging, or of reaching their several homes.

Glamorganshire Spring Assizes. SWANSEA, FEBRUARY 23rd. At one o'clock on Wednesday, the High Sheriff, J.olm Homfray, Esq., accompanied by his javelin men, a^»defc^oftpd by a possee of the Borough Police, proceeded in the usdal form to meet the Judge, Mr. Justice Maule. The 4ay was rather fine, and induced a number of spectators to attend a spectacle that derived peculiar interest from the pomp and circumstances of the cortege of the High Sheriff, which was of a very imposing nature. The liveries of the javelin men, with their pennons floating.in the air, were very gay, and attracted much admiration. The High Sheriff met his Lordship, in his travelling carriage, a few miles outside the town, when his Lordship entered the carriage of the High Sheriff, and the cavalcade, attended by a number of specta- tors, entered the town, and drove to the lodging usually occupied by the Judge of Assize. After a brief stay there, His Lordship opened the Commission with the usual cere- monies. On Thursday morning, at 10 o'clock, his Lordship accom- panied by the High Sheriff, and many of the respectable inhabitants, attended Diviue Service, when a Sermon suit- able to the occasion was delivered. At the conclusion of a very impressive senn, his Lord- ship, accompanied by the High-Sheriff and his Chaplain, alid a numerous and highly-respectable cortege, proceeded to the Hall, and directly entered on the business of the Assizes. The Hall was commodiously fitted up, and the arrange- ments in the body of the Court; and for the ingress and egress of persons, was excellent. The following mngistrates were present:-Rev. W. Hew- son, D.D., L. L. Dillwyn, Fred. Fredricks, R. D. Gough, John Grove, Howel Gwyn, William Jones, William Ireland Jones, Jolini D. Llewelyn, Henry Lucas, G. Llewellyn, F. Leach, Robert Lyndsay, R. A. Mansel, R. HilIMiers, C. R. M. Talbot, Henry Thomas, Iltid Thomas, T. Edward Thomas, J. H. Vivian, M.P., Rev. John Collins, Rev. Samuel Davies, G. G. Bird, Mayor of Swansea. The following gentlemen were then sworn on the Giand Jury: C. R. M. Talbot, Esq., M.P., Foreman J. H. Vivian, Esq., M.P. I R. A. Mansel, Esq. Henry Lucas, Esq. M. Moggridge, Esq. J. D. Llewellyn, Esq. R. H. Mien, Esq. R. D. Gough, Esq. I L. D. Dillwyn, Esq. Howel Gwyn, Esq. Starling Benson, Esq. W. J. Jones, Esq. George G. Bird, Esq. W. Jones, Esq. I Robert Lindsay, Esq. T. E. Thomas, Esq. Henry Thomas, Esq. John Grove, Esq. F. Edward Leach, Esq. Frederick Fredricks, Esq. I George Gape, Esq, Griffith Llewellyn, Esq. Thomas Morgan, Esq. His Lordship then said- Gentlemen of the grand jury,—I observe with regret that in the list of cases in your calendar there are one or two of a serious kind. There are not many that require particular remark, yet these few that I allude to will warrant me in troubling you with one or two observations on them. One of them is of a very serious kind indeed no less than that of murder. The tui pitude of that-its open violation of the laws, both of God and man, are so notorious, that a defination of that as contra-distinguished from manslaughter may be necessary. The law is, that if death follow personal violence, without sufficient excuse to extenuate.it, and thatJ death should follow, then that might be sai(T €o constitute 1 the crime of murder. Now, in point of law, there is malice, propence, and forethought, attendant on the act, which is aggravated by the intention, and thus characterized hy' ma- lice, deliberation, and intention, the crime of murder is perpetrated. Now, many persons cannot murder without the parties committing it being actually the perpe- trators of the act. Parties may conspire together to commit the offence, and though the act may be the act Of one person, yet the others, as aiding therein, and as; moral physical accessaries to the act, may, in the eyes of the law, be guilty of the crime of murder. There was another case in which a person is charged with a burglary. In order to effectually constitute burglary, it was not entirely necessary that the offence should take place if the intent to do so was established. Lifting a latch with an intent, though the act of burglary was not effected, con- stitute that crime, In the present case, the party charged with a burglary, did intend to commit [a rape, and entered surreptitiously into a dwelling-house for that purpose thus aggravating the heniousness of the original intent. When a house is broken into for the purpose of committing a rape, should the crime of rape be committed under such circumstances, it would be for the jury to judge whether such an act, though stepping short of the rape, constituted burglary. With regard to the crime of rape, there is a difference of opinion among the judges respecting it. The law is, that unless it be accompanied by violence, there is no rape. I am not aware that there are any other cases that call for particular observation. If, in the case of your inquiry any subject of difficulty should arise, I shall be happy to give you the benefit of my experience. In the mean time I beg to com- mend you to your duties. The grand jury then retired, and his lordship proceeded with the trial of the prisoners. THE FORGERY AT MERTHYR. Evan Lloyd and John Davies convicted at the last Assizes for forgery of a warrant for the payment of £ 130 Is. 6d., on a bank at Merthyr, were to day brought to receive the sentence of the court. The money it appeared belonged to a Benefit Society in Merthyr, of which, these persons were members. At the trial, which at the time, excited much interest and the particulars of which being fully reported at the time, cannot but be fresh in the recollection of our readers, objection was taken by counsel to the form of the instrument which the prisoners were charged with forging. The objection substantially was that, the prisoners were part owners of the money, being members of the club, to the prejudice of which the forgery was attempted to be com- mitted. The objection, however, after an anxious delibera- tion of the Judges in London was over-ruled. There was no doubt, said the learned judge, that the instrument was a warrant for money, and the judge held that the warrant was for the payment of money. If the banker had paJd the money on the warrant, they would have lost £ 130 nothing, therefore remains, but that the sentence then respited by order pronounced upon the prisoners. The present punishment, though severe, would be comparatively light, for a few years -ago, death would the inevitable consequence, or at least transportation tap life. They had not the excuse commonly pleaded on the$ej occa- sions of ignorance. They were men to whom no syi|h ex- terminating excuse could attach, for everything connected with the case shewed that there was considerable ingenuity exercised in the attempt to compass the object. His lordship then sentenced the prisoners to transportation for ten years. Mr. Nicholl, who conducted the case for the Crown, said, there were two other indictments against the prisoners for false pretence, which stood over since last Assizes. A jury was empannelled, pro forma, the case being briefly sub- mitted to them, but as the prisoners pleaded Not Guilty, Mr. Nicholl offered no evidence, and the jury, under the direction of the Court, acquitted the prisoners on that in- dictment. The Crown, of course, considering it superfluous to prosecute a charge against men on whom sentence of transportation had been just passed. The prisoners were then removed. Wm. Evans, laborer, of Swansea, in the parish of Lucca, was charged with stealing a hen the property of William Hughes. On the 13th of January it appeared the prisoner had occasion to buy nails from the prosecutor. The nails were in a shed where the hens were. The hen in qustion was safe the night before. The hen- was here introduced, and by her cackling showed how well she could if necessary become the crier of the court. On being taken into cfistody, on the charge of stealing the fowl, prisoner said he bought her from a hawker for 9d. He offered her for sale at the Golden Lion Inn. Guilty—two months' imprisonment. William Mayberry and James Wilkins, charged with stealing a watch and other articles. Mayberry pleaded guilty.—8 months' imprisonment, with hard labour. Wil- kins, by order of the court, was discharged. John Jenkins, Morgan Jenkins, and William Thomas were charged with Poaching on the property of C. R. M. Talbot, Esq. Sentenced to two months' imprisonment and hard labour. At 5 o'clock the Court adjourned to 9 o'clock this morn- ing (Friday). A full Report of the Assizes will be given next week,

It is requested that all communications for this Paper may be addressed to HENRY WEBBER, Advertiser & Guardian Office, Cardiff. The Notice to discontinue the Advertisement of the Resi- dence of SARN FAWR" to be Let, came to hand too late, that part of the Paper in which it appears being previously- worked off. r
THE House of Commons was occupied during the greater part of last week in entertaining a motion of Lord Howick s on the subject of the depression of the Manu- facturing Industry of the Country, as referred to in Her Majesty s Speech. The motion, being a mere struggle of parties, was rejected by a large majority. The debates, so far as we have had the patience to peruse them, were a very dull affair. Little was said that deserves to be remembered, but much which by this time is totally forgotten. Of the existence of that distress there could not be two opinionl-it has been recognised in every form-by royal sympathy and public benevolence-and it has been borne by the sufferers with unexampled forti- tude. But of its causes and remedies, that is the question and the question has been no more settled by five nights of dull debate, than was that great controversy with the Atlantic, when an elderly Lady took arms against a sea of troubles,"—her weapons being a pair of pattens, a mop, and a bucket. The debaters seemed to have for- gotten that sound axiom. of the Poet— How small of all the ills that men endure, Thatipart which Laws or Kings can make or cure." Great was the war of crimination and recrimination-r-it was an illustration of the worse than folly of arraying class against class—the antagonism of Trade And Agri- cultüre-thè rivalry between the Tillers of tHe Soil and. the Soilers of the Till-between interests which sound policy has joined, but selfishness has put assunder. It was truly, as described by an acute critic, a party debate without "an issue,"—a number of orators talking at each other rather than arguing-putting forward uncon- troverted facts and principles with great show of opposi- tion, but without any solid attempt to distinguish with precision the point at which they conflict with those which each imputed to his opponent. We cannot but think that the people look with indifference on such pro- ceedings, and the suffering portion of the population with something of indignation, at being made merely the instruments of a proposal," as it was termed by Sir James Graham, "to turn out the Ministers." Still it must be confessed that something must be done-and the debate was not altogether unimportant as manifesting the advances of, the doctrine of Free Trade. The principle was admitted—the dispute was as to time,. .a great safety valve with all politicians. Of the mutual dependence of the Agricultural and Manufacturing interest we think there can be no doubt. We remember a very strong sensation made by a speech of Sir Robert Peel, in which he told the latter class that the home market was the best-that the Agriculturists were their best customers and largest consumers—perhaps the con- verse of the proposition is equally true, and the largest consumers of Agricultural produce are the Manufacturers —depress and starve them and you have no occasion to go to the Tariff for a cause of Agricultural depression- and it may be asserted with equal truth that Manu- facturing industry has made its influence felt in all the Farming neighbourhood, raising Rentals of Moorland, according to Mr. Ashworth, "in some cases 1500 per cent." and on others more. Mr. Ashworth, however, does not tell us what has been the increase of Poor Rates in those parts. We have said before something must be done, and delay is impossible, but that something must be done by the rules of equity, and. with strict reference to the general good. There may be much truth in the statements of both classes to sharpen recriminations and perpetuate acrimonious feelings, when, as is usually the case, there may be much of right and error on both sides. In the midst of the dust raised by the late Parlia- mentary struggle, we have seen something more than the shadow of Free Trade—whether for good or evil time must show. If as some of its honest and sanguine supporters intimate, in its triumph the blessings of good government, the increased comfort to a mass of the suffering community, harmony amongst different classes, the cause of peace, of justice, of humanity, of civilization,' of religion, are all interwoven—then we ought to be more ready to fight under the banner of Free Trade, than of any Restrictive Laws or Protecting Systems. But the if is not only a grsat peace ..maker" but a. severe logician, and we are quite sure that whatever inaybethe "liberal" views of Sir Robert Peel he will be just, and he will not forget when he is called upon to abandon selfish legislation," and establish the dominion 0 of Commercial Freedom, the fetters which shackle the limbs and impede the progress of Agriculture, if it be true that nine-tenths of the expense of supporting the vast mass of pauperism is thrown upon the land. Let him not forget that legislate, or rather unlegislate, as he may—let him remove all laws affecting Trade, which seem to be either unjust or impolitic. Seasons of Mercantile depression will come, unless we can compel all Nations and Kingdoms to bow down to the Idol we have set up, without establishing a rival Pagod of their own. He will not forget how easily great interests are shaken to their foundations by hasty and inconsiderate repeals. Forget he cannot that the cruelties of the Factory and the Mine, like the Slave Trade, the natural product of Commercial avarice, demanded legislative remedy-and until human beings have ceased to be con- sidered as mere pieces of machinery, they will still demand legislative protection. But it is not our intention to use language of crimination—all we demand is fair and im- partial legislation for Commerce as for Agriculture, and for both. It requires no spirit of prophecy to say that Free Trade principles have made rapid, strides/both within the walls of, Parliament and without. The late Ministers loved to ride in the whirlwind," but they wanted the ability "to direct the storm,"—but behold the anti-climax, they were the great unsettlers on the squalid desert of necessity, the squatters in the wilder- ness of no effects." They perished for want of the pabulum vita, like mice in an exhausted receiver. The importance of the late debate then is the exhibition of the increase of the Free Trade principle. Work It will-but the importance of time and circumstance will not escape the vigilant.-sagacity of the men to whom the destinies of a mighty Empire are committed. w. have no refpect for Mr. Cobden, for he is a dan- gerous man-but we have a great respect for the -4ausc of Truth and J uatice-and this feeling prompts us to say that he was unjustly treated, at the elope of a recent debate, by the House of whicll he is a Member. During his speech he more than once used the phrase of personal responsibility," varied as frequently by that qf individually responsible,—and not a murmur- of dissent—no cheers, derisive or, ironical—no appalliqg oh! oh's led him to suppose th&t his words were offensive, or weir meaning questionable. But-no sooner does Sir Robert Peel enlighten the House and point the applica- tion—and this in a state of excitement either real or well feignedhaD down comes the denouncing* thunder, Cobden is overwhelmed with exeetation, and scarcely permitted to qualify ot explain. W*ho"'d,oubts bid a late tragical eirent was the medium of interpretation, and'that the "foregone conclusion" was' in' the mmda. 6f <hi indignant cheer-ers. But still the difficulty remains to be eolv-edhow-so ma y hundred gentlemen heard-the «8ea- sive words unmoved, and required the stimulus of Sir Robert Peel's excitement to express their, reprobation. Now it appears to us that the Minister's reproof would have been far more dignified tfnd impressive, if he had cautioned Mr. Cobden against the use of language that might be mistaken by the ignorant out of ddtirs, and have acquitted him, as he must ig. his heart have acquitted him, of using such base menaces as he imputed to the Member, for Stockton. Surely Sir Robert Peel was not attempting, for how could he require so unworthy an artifice, to attract the sympathy of the House, to himself, and direct its anger towards Mr. Cobden, pa part and parcel of oratorical display, conciliating attention to his own argument, and exhibiting the tendency of Anti-jCoTn- Leagueopinions—yet such was tbe effect, and upon it Sir Robert Peel rode triumphantly for the night. IT wis ■ beyond measure indiscreet, wcthink, to suppose that such insinuation* as were charged upon Mr. Cobden, 1 un^er any circumstances, t|ie lipji pf ,a single Member of the House of Cominona^—or to1 teach tbe public, out of. door», to believe that such thoughts were as common as we believe them to, be isolated. If, Sir Robert Peel has the passions and feelings of, the' House at his bidding, he should direct them wis«W\.v— Next to the guilt of threatening, is that of imputing', threats unjustly.

SHOCKING ACCIDSNT. — On Saturday last, as a labouring man was passing down the wharf, he saw a child named Evans, who was about fire years old, run out of a house en- veloped in flames. Her clothes, it would appear, caught fire by some accident in the house, out of which, when unable to extinguish them, she ran. The HUD considering that the most efficacious mode of relieving the little suffer* would be to plunge her into the canal, instantly on seeing her condi- tion snatched her up and soused her at once into it. This had of course the effect of extinguishing the flames, but the poor child has suffered severely by her sudden immersion.

OBSTRUCTION IN THE STREETB.-The gentleman whose ease was adverted to last week, as having been overturned in his gig in Paradise-row, summoned Evan Jones for the damage sustained. The particulars have been already de- ,tailed. The defendant said that in shooting the rubbish into a^ted and under tbe direction ot his employer, Mr. Jacob, the maltster, who alone, he contended, was answerable for the injury. The defendant was fined 25s. but demurred to the payment on the ground of non-liability. Lusus NATURE.—A lamb, the property of the high^sheriff, J. Homfray, Esq., was yeaned last wiek of remarkable con- formation. This creature, which was but one day old when it expired had two perfect heads, united by a species of liga- ture similar to that which attached the Siamese twins together. The exterior organisation of the heads was per- fect, each having two .eyes. The ears, however, were rither further down in the oeck than usual,—projecting from the forehead, or rather from the thin partition that divided the heads, tlier. WIU a third ar, with a small orifice communi- cating with each of the heads. On opening the heads they were each found to contain brains. In all Qther the limbs of this extraordinary creature were of. the usual n conformation. CARDIFF COKN RETURNS.-Feb. 23, 1843—Wheat, per unp. qr., £ 2. 7s. 24d. Barley, £ 1. 8s. Oats, 15s. Beans, £2.

Waite, Esq., ofbristol, delivered a Lectluie on Monday evening last, in the English Baptist chapel, Cardiff, on the causes, evils, and remedies of the present defective state of congregational psalmody. The lecture was very respectably attended, and at ita -clo.. the Old Hundredth psalm, and several other church tunes were sung. The audience appeared much gratified and it is ex- pected a sufficient class will be made up to enable Mr. Waite to give the twelve lessons he has proposed and as the sub- scription is only 2s., it is placed within the reach of almost every person desirous of learning or hearing the improved system of psalm singing. FORGED COINS.—The notorious coin-forgers are again in the field. Imitations of the Anglo-Saxon coins found at Cuerdale have been sold to several inexperienced antiqtmries and collectors. It is only about six months since that a per. son in Sussex engaged an artist to execute dies for forging the gold coin of Mary, and the scarce .silver of Stephen, Edward VI, &c. The leniency shown to this knave., ,who to avoid the disclosure of his name resigned the dies to Mr. Till, would seem to have emboldened him, for he is again in the field with spurious coins. The veteran Singletoto, who has added to the aliases Holden, Holding, Edwards, &c., which heretofore served his purposes, those of Carpenter, Hunt, &c., and who has been exposed repeatedly in the [ Numismatic Chronicle, has latell, under the Dame of Car. penter, been at Colchester and Ipswich, strange to say, he has duped silversmiths and antiquaries to. a consider- able extent. By a recent law, which is not generally known, any person who has been cheated can apply to a magistrate, who is empowered to apprehend the swindler, and transpor- tation will be the result of conviction. Respecting the,, Cuerdale coins, it may be as wen to say that collectors should I be cautious of purchasing from strangeracoini purporting to belong to that "find," as the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster allowed none of the coins to be distributed, except to well known and respectable numismatists. The coins have consequently not fallen into the hands of any dealers, much less into those of the initerants who pftfess to possess them, and who have been imitating the scarce coins of Alfred, as specimens of great rarity, to cheat the unwary. Among the distinguished predecessors of the Rev. Dr. Ollivant in the Chair of the Regious Divinity Professorship of Cambridge, may be ranked the celebrated Richard Wat- son, D.D., Bishop of LlandafF, who held that appointment for about 10 years. [We have great pleasure in inserting the following letter, it is an admirable commentary on our appeal of last week; a per centage upon the board per salvage service, would be an admirable mode of increasing the funds of the Shipwrecked Fishermen and Mariners' Benevolent Society, we are per- suaded it would be readily paid.-[ED.
