LLANDILO URBAK DISTRICT COUNCIL The monthly meeting of this body was held on Tuesday evening in last week, when there were present: Mr. D. Morgan, White Horse (chairman); ftev. E. L. Jones, and Messrs. Claud R. Da\ies, Hopkins, D. Pritchard Davies. A. E. Harries, W. L. Roberts, W. D. Jenkins. J. Stephens, J. T. Edwards, Ht W. Jones, T. C. Hurley, together with the clerk, Mr R. Shipley Lewis; the medical officer of health, Dr. Phillips; and the surveyor, Mr. R. Walters. An-ongit the hills was one for £2 5s., being half of the cost of the Crug footbridge. The other half is contributed by the Parish Council. The Surveyor informed the Council that the water for the cheese factory had been out on as theRec- tors refused to pay the sum of £ 10 per annum, the <mm bv tho Counoil.. Replying to Mr. J. T. Edwards as to the of the committee as to the lighting of Thomas-ter race, the Chairman said it had gone so far as to the Diacini? the lamp- Mr. D. P. Davies said the committee had to wait to title we effect of cutting down trees in the locality befo;:e they could finally decide as to the position of ^ThiT&rst business on the agenda was to affix the seal of the Council to a general district rate at 2s. 6d. in the S. The Clerk said the total amount the rate would produce would be F,788 19s. 2d. It was decided to have a special committee to deal with the question of the fire brigade and appliances. The following were appointedChairman and vice- chairman and Messrs. W. L. Roberts, D. P. Davies, W. U. Jenkins, J1. Stephens, E. A. Harries, and E. P4 Jones.. Mr. J. T. Edwards suggested that it would be advisable to have the water committee form part of the committee, and three of those already named were on it. This was not done, but the names of the Rev. E. L. Jones and Mr. J. T. Edwards were added to those already named to form a fire brigade. Mr. Claud R. Davies inquired what was the pur- pose of the committee? The Chairman replied that it was to form an up- to-date fire brigade. Mr. W. L. Roberts said the surveyor was the right man to do the work. Mr. E. A. Harries suggested that the force of the water should be tried in different parts. Mr. Roberts said that the supply of water was the main question. He added that no fire brigade could under the circuIlliitanees have done better than the local fire brigade did, assisted by the police at the County School fire. Answering a question by Mr. Edwards, the Sur- veyor said their need was to test two hoses at work. The stand had been ordered and it would be advisable not to call the committee together until he could report. Mr. Hy. W. Jones said that the fire brigado should go out four times. a year. The Surveyor although he had been a member of the brigade, was never called out. Mr. Harries asked who was the captain? The reply was the surveyor. A member remarked that the committee should select their own. Mr. D. P. Davies having asked when the medical officer's report was to be considered, Mr. T. C. Hurley gave notice to bring it on at the next meeting. Answering Mr. D. P. Davies, the surveyor said Mr. W. D. Jenkins said the alterations and im- provements in the slaughter-house would be pro- ceeded with at once. On the motion of Mr. W. Hopkins, seconded by Mr. J. T. Edwarcla, it was decided to hold a special meeting to consider the report and to meet on Wednesday, the 13th inst. The Rev W. Davies, The Walk. wrote acknowledg- ing the vote of condolence passed with him and the family on the death of Mrs. Davies, his wife. Sir John Williams wrote asking the Council for a subscription towards the National Lilbrary of Wales. The Clerk said it could not be done without the sanction of the Local Government Board. Mr. T. C. Huxley. having regard to the state of their rates, proposed that the Council do not tiub- scribe. Mr. J. R. Evans seconded. Mr. J. Stephens said that they should come into line with other councils that had subscribed, and in response to a request by Mr. Stephens, the clerk read a list of those who had contributed. It was for the building fund. Sir John in his letter said that ib was to complete one section of the building that the money was now asked for. It was £ 16,000. Mr. W. L. Robert", said that they would be able to get books from the Council under certain conditions. The Clerk said there was also a letter from Mr. Lleufer Thomas on the subject. He said he would be sorry if Llandilo Council did not associate itself with the movement. Mr. J. Stephens gave notice to place it on the agenda for the next meeting. Mr. W. D. Jenkins supported the motion. The Chairman said it was the right spirit and at his suggestion Mr. Hurley withdrew his motion. The Chairman invited the Council to apply again to the Brigadier of the Yeomanry to come here again next year. He was quite prepared to go down to Tenby where they were meeting this year M one of a deputation. The Council decided' to make the application. Mr. J. B. Davies. manager of the National Pro- vincial Bank, wrote stating as to frequent illnesses in his house that he felt convinced that his family suffered in oonsequence of nuisaneea on adjoining premises. The Surveyor admitted that there was cause for oocnplaint. The Surveyor was instructed to see to the matter. Mr. Claud R. Davies said he was under the im- pression that the'Streets Committee had not been given plenary powers to make terms with the Gas Company as to the cutting up of the roads. The committee had fixed each cutting at 2s. 6d. The company would fee making about 140 cuttings and tfoe roads would be in a bad state. They should ask at least 5s. He moved accordingly. The Chairman said the Council had given tho committee power to arrange terms. They thought Ssl. 6d. a year would keep the roads. up for 12 months- Mr. Claud R. Davies said he would not object- if it were only n occasional cutting, but in tho next few months the 140 cuttings would be done. Mr. D. P. Davies asked if they were in order in discussing this matter. Mr. Edward thought the committee had gone too i-nr. He had asked for a map from the gas company of tho mains. The Chairman said there was nothing about that in ttio resolution. Mr. Edwards urged that they should make strin- gent terms with the Gas Company. Mr. W. D. Jenkins thought it was a mistake on the part of the committee. Mr. W. T,. Roberts concurred. Ren. E. L. JonfL, thought they had asked the com- mittee to enquire what was done in other towns. Mr. Hy. W. Jo Hen believed the surveyor had in- formatics to that effect. As nothing had been signed he thoughr they could still reconsider the matter. Mr. J. Stepheas wns sorry for the tone of the meeting. He took it they were dealing with honour- able men who would do to the town what would prove a boon. They should encourage them. They had gone carefully into the matter in committee, and they thought 2s. 6d. was reasonable. The company had come to improve the town. He moved the adoption of the recommendation of the committee. Mr. W. Hopkins seconded. He agreed with what Mr. Stephens had said. Mr. Claud R. Davies objected to the remarks of the two last speakers. No one had spoken dis paragingly of the company. Mr. W. D. Jenkins vas firmly convinced the committee had made a mistake. They would find that they would have to re-metal the whole roads. He appreciated what the committee had done, but believed that there was an error of judgment. He I would second Mr. Claud R. Davies that the report be not adopted. Mr. A. E. Harries queried whether the surveyor had letters from other towns as to the charges made. Letters were read from Carmarthen, where no charges were made, who were responsible for de- faults. At Llanelly the Gas Company had to repair the trenches twice a year. Mr. C. R. Davies said he would withdraw his motion and asked that the matter be referred back Mr. J. Stephens said it had been referred to as if the committee were keeping things back. All the information they "had had, had been placed before the Council. The Rev. E. L. Jones said that the only point was that there had been a blunder in the committee taking plenary powers. Mr. Stephens declinq|i' to withdraw his motion. Other members having spoken, Mr. Roberts said they ought to have a proper agreement with the company. Mr. Jenkins agreed. They should have an agree- ment clearly defining the conditions. A letter was read from the secretary of the Gas Company stating they would be willing to agree to anv reasonable terms. Mr. Harries would not like the idea to go abroad that they were against the Gas Company. Per- sonallv he did not think 2s. 6d. too little. If they were going to confirm it they had better have a special meeting. They should not discourage a new industry. Mr. D. P. Davies did not see why they should give strangers advantages that they did not give townspeople. To refer the report back, seven voted and against five. Mr. T. C. Hurley-What about breaking up the roads in the meantime? Mr. W. D. Jenkins asked what was the legal posi- tion? The Chairman thought they could allow them to do it as they would agree to any reasonable terms. Mr. H. W. Jones said there was also the question of laying fresh mains. Mr. Hurley—Suppose they did not agree with the terms of the company. The Clerk-The company would then have to go for a Provisional Order. The Chairman said they were all getting out of tho order. It had been referred back to the com- mittee. Tenders for kerbing and channelling in Bland-road and Cattle Mart were consideredr For Bland-road that of Mr. Hy. Evans at E13 19s. 6d. was accepted, and for the mart that of Mr. S. P. Morris at JB7 16s. was accepted. The Surveyor in his report referred to the damage done at Penlan Park. Mr. Hy. W. Jones thought they should make an effort to discover the culprit. Mr. Harries agreed. The Surveyor said that locking up the park was a farce with the low waUing at one entrance. With reference to tarring the road, Mr. W. D. Jenkins proposed, and Mr. J. R. Evans seconded, that they do not do any tar spraying of the streets this year. Mr. D. P. Davies proposed that a portion of the town near the National School be done. Mr. W. Hopkins seconded Only the proposer and seconder voted for tarring.

CARMARTHEN Tho fortnightly meeting of the Carmarthen Board of Guardians was held at the Board-room of the Workhouse on Saturday. There were present: Mr. John Jones, Plas (chairman); Messrs. T. Davies, Abernant; J. Evans and J. Jones, Conwil; J. Jones. Laugharne Township; D. Stephens and W. Brazell. Llaijariiiiiey; J. Williams and W. Williams, Aber- gwili; W. W. Thomas, Llandawke; J. W. Lewis, Llanddarog; H. Grimths, Llangunnor; E. jj^wen, Llandefeilog; J. J. Bowen, Llangunnock; Joseph Phillips, Llanddowror; J. Lewis, Llangendeirne; Llew. Morgan, Llanginning; R. Howells, Llanpump- saint; J. LL Richards, Llanstephan; M. James, Evans, Mydrim; D. Thomas, Llangain; R. Jeremy, Newchurch; M. W. Jenkins, Llantihangel; J. Her- bert, Llanllawddog; D. G. Bowen and J. S. Wil- liams, Trelech; A. F. Mills, T. Williams, J. P. Lewis and T. Thomas, St. Peter. The Master in his report stated: "Divine service was conducted at the house on Sunday, 26th April, by Mr. R. B. Davies, lay reader, and on Sunday, 3rd May, by the Rev. J. G. Jones, curate of St. David's, one of the children was christened during the service. The number of inmates in the house on the last day of the week was 57, against 60 for the corresponding period last year. The number of casual paupers relieved during the fortnight was 132, against 167 for the same period last year. Periodi- cals were kindly given to the inmates by Miss G. M. E. White, lady guardian; Mrs. Evans, 78, Lammas-street, and Mrs. Kettley, Tanners' Arms. The Carmarthen Operatic Society gave the inmates permission to attend the matinee at the Assembly Rooms on 30th April. The reports of the relieving officers showed the amount of outdoor relief distributed during the fortnight ending on the previous Board-day to have been as follows:—First week: 668 paupers, a decrease of 4, as compared with the corresponding week last year; expenditure, J394 16s. 9d., an increase of £ 2 lis.,Second week: 666 paupers, an increase of j.0 expenditure, £ 89 17s. 9d., an increase of E4 13s. 6d. The Treasurer's report showed the balance in hand on the previous Board-day to have been £3,769 5s. 2d. A letter was received from Mr. D. Morgan, who had been appointed overseer for the parish of Aber- gwili. The call had been served on him. He claimed that he was exempt as he was collector of income tax for the parish. The Clerk (Mr. J. Saer) said that he believed the man was exempt. The Parish Council ought not to have appointed him. It was decided to ask the Parish Council to ap- point another overseer in Mr. Morgan's place. Miss Owen, daughter of the late Mr. T. Owen, assistant overseer and poor-rate collector for the parish of St. Peter, wrote asking if it were possible for the guardians to return the deductions which had been made from her father's salary towards the Superannuation Fund. The Clerk said that the amount which the late Mr. T. Owen contributed was E43 4s. The guardians had no power to return it. A letter was read. from the Local Government Board with reference to the application of Miss Huish, formerly nurse at the Carmarthen Work- house, for the return of her contributions to the Superannuation Fund. The Board stated that as Miss Huish's resignation could not be regarded as voluntary, the contributions might be properly re- turned to her. Mr. Sharp, who had been appointed poor-rate col- lector for the parish of Llansadwrn, wrote asking if the Guardians would accept two local gentlemen as sureties instead of an Insurance Society. The Clerk said that in the case of a deficiency they found it very hard to come down on private incre- ments who had become guarantees. In the case of a guarantee society who were paid a premium there was no hardship. The Board decided to insist on a bond from a society. Two applications were received for the post of nurse at the Workhotise-Miss Banks, of the Infir- mary. Winchfield. Hants., a native of Llanelly, and Miss Lizzie Jones, 41, James-street, Llanelly. Mr. J. W. Lewis pointed out that Circular 15 required the Guardians to make independent in- quiries and not rely upon submitted testimonials. It was decided to appoint Miss Banks subject to this regulation being carried out. Rural District Council Tiie monthly meeting of the Carmarthen Rural District Council was held at the Guildhall on Satur- day. Mr. James Evans (chairman of the Council) presided. Mr. E. Job (sanitary inspector) reported on the case of a house occupied by a family at Pontyberem. He had practically filled the house. The houso was too small to be occupied. It was decided to serve notice on the owner to have the premises vacated. Mr. Job also called attention to the case of some cottages in Abergwili parish. The cottages were not fit for habitation, and he had told the agent so. The agent had however tenants placed in them. It was decided to repair the houses at the cost of the owner. Mr. W. E. Tones (surveyor) reported: I beg to report to the Council a proposed new building at Tre- lech village. It appears that owing to a delay oil the part of the architect in submitting the plan the build- ing was put in hand by the contractor and .e founda- tion and damp course inserted. The local councillor (Mr. J. S. Williams) wrote me asking me to inspect damp course which I did on the 27th ult. I found on visiting site that the building had an insufficient open space at rear to meet tiie requirements of the bye- laws. I informed the contractor that a plan had not been submitted end warned him that building was contrary to the bye-laws. The plan has not yet .been received, and I have heard nothing further in the matter. -ç¡¡; The Clerk said that they had no right to proceed with the building until the plans had been passed. Mr. J. S. Williams said that he could assure them that the work would go on. The Clerk-Then it is the duty of the Council to pull it down. It was decided to adhere to the regulations. Mr. E. Job (sanitary inspector) reported that the county medical officer wants me to come with him to visit partfl of my district." Mr. Job asked the in- struction of the District Council on the subject. Mr. J. J. Bowen-Why does the medical officer of health for the county want our inspector to comp with him. Dr. Bowen Jones (district medical officer) said that he was surprised at the county medical officer doing this. He had nothing to do wiui the sanitary inspec- tor. If he had any application to make he should make it to the Council. Mr. J. J. Bowen—I move that the request be not granted. Mr. Job—If I receive a letter from the county medical officer again, what am I to do? The Clerk—Put it before the Council. Mr. Job—In the meantime I am not to go. The Clerk-No. A letter was read from the Roads Board asking for particulars in regard to the various roads for the purposes of classification. The Clerk said that according to the speech of the Chancellor of the Exchequer they were going to make a grant of one-half towards first-class roads and one-fourth towards second-class county roads. He supposed that the other roads would get nothing. Mr. J. J. Bowen-And the County Council will take care that our roads go in Class 3. The Clerk said that that had been their experience before. They had spent J640 or BM in endeavouring to get a grant and they failed. Several members suggested that there were several district roads which ought to go into Class 2. The Chairman, clerk and vice-chairman were ap- pointed a committee to go into the matter. A discussion took place over the fact that con- tractors did not in some cases carry out their con- tracts. Many of the contracts are never signed, and it was suggested that no money be paid contractors until the contracts are signed and stamped. Mr. Gad Protheroe, surveyor, was directed to construct a culvert at Cwmcremlyn, Llangunnock, provided the local residents do the haulage.
LLANDILO The fortnightly meeting of this Board was held on Saturday, when there were present: Mii. John Lewis (chairman), Mr. Evan Davies (vice-chairman), Lord Dynevor, Mrs. E. A. Roberts1, Rev. J.

Shipley Lewis; the deputy clerk. Mr. D. Jones- Llorris; and the other officials. THE HOUSE. The Master reported that the number of inmates was 56 against 61 corresponding period last year. Vagrants relieved for the fortnight 166 against 258 corresponding period last year. Mrs. Gwynne- Hughes had treated the inmates to a very enjoy- able entertainment at the Drill Hall. She was accorded a hearty vote of thanks. TREASURER'S ACCOUNT. The Clerk reported that all calls had been paid. There was a balance in hand of L840 18s. lid. Pre- cepts were received from the Education Committee for L2,605 5s. 6d> being County Education'Rate for the several parishes in the Union on account of loans for the erection of new schools. The amount varied in each parish. There was also a precept for County Rat at 6d. in tho JE, making a total of L3,115 3s. 6<1 CONVEYANCES FOR LUNATICS. Tenders were received from a considerable num- ber of motor owners for conveying lunatics to the I asylum. For the North District the tender of Mr. Lloyd Harries, Llandilo, at 6d. per mile, was ac- cepted, and for the South District that of Mit D. Jones, Ammanford. at 9d. per mile, for a landau- lette. "GRASS" WIDOWS. In dealing with the relief lists membors held a discussion as to the propriety of giving outdoor re- lief to women who had been deserted by their husbands. Mrs. Roberts proposed that they should not give them outdoor relief. It was, however, finally, decided to deal with all cases on their merits. APPOINTMENTS. The next business was to appoint a Medical Officer and Public Vaccinatnr for the Cwmamman District. Two application!! only were received. The Chairman proposed ti):i, the selection be by ballot. This wns seconded. Rev. Alban Davies proposed that both posts be combined. This was agreed to. The result of the voting was:—Dr. D. Stevenstm Richardson, Arosfa, Glanamman, 21; Dr. J. Rad- cliffo Grice, Lion Cottage, Glanamman, 18. The Chairman then proposed, and Mr. Arthur Williams seconded, that Dr. Richardson be ap- pointed. This was carried. A CONTRACT. The Board scaled the contract with Messrs. Chas. Thomas and Co. for alterations to the new offices. The amount was £ 139 10s., but the C/lerk said there was a sum of £ 6 for extras*. "0" À! TENDER FOR ELECTRIC LIGHT. The tender of Mr. D. Pritchard Davies for in- stalling electrio light in the new offices at £10 8s. was accepted. The next items oil the agenda were to seal mort- gate to the Public Works Loan Commissioners for the sum of £2,400 and interest at 3g per cent. for the purchase of the Union Workhous* and lanu held therewith and also for the purchase of pre- mises in Rhosmaen-street, Llandilo, for a Board- room and Offices, such loans being repayable in 30 years by half yearly instalments of principal and interest on the balance from time to time remain- ing unpaid, and To seal order for the delivery of the Commis- sioners' certificate for the said sum of L2,400 to the treasurer of the Board. Rural District Counoil A meeting of the Rural District Council was held later, Mr. Evan Davies, J..P., Pistillgwyn, the chairman, presiding. The Clerk explained that it had been decided to appoint six instead of five from the different dis- trictg on the joint committee re Rhydymerdy Bridge. It was therefore necessary for this Council to nominate another member.—It was decided to appoint Mr. Robert Matthews. In accordance with a resolution passed sometime ago as to this Council and Ammanford Urban Council becoming jointly responsible in regard to Rhydymerdy Bridge for £1,500 each, subject to satisfactory assurance and security being .given for the payment of the promised contributions letters had been received from the several councils ratify- ing their promises. The Clerk said that an agree- ment would have to be executed, and an applica- tion would have to bo made to the Local Govern- ment Board for sanction to borrow the amount. The L.C.I.B. would then send down one of their inspectors to hold an inquiry on the spot. Each council would make application o. its own behalf. Mr. T. M, Evans and him&elf would send in their applications on Monday. He could then write to Mr. Wyndham Lewis to that effect. If they got all the promised subscriptions in ho did not think they would require anything like 21,500. The estimate totalled £ 3,500. Although they would be applying for sanction to borrow EI,500 they need not spend more than they required. They intended applying to the County Council for money as they went along. Ho did not anticipate that they would experience any difficulty in obtaining from the County Council their contribution. PLANS COMMITTEE. Mr. R. Matthews said they had before them that day one plan of a chapel which had been passed, and two specifications. The other was a plan for a slaughter-house which had been visited by their inspector who did not find it exactly what it should be. That plan had been therefore deferred until the inspector visited the place again and reported further thereon. Company's Road, Brynamman, had been visited, but there was nothing striking to report in respect to that. RATES. A rate was made for Llandebie at Is. in the 2, and for Llanfynydd at Is. 3d. Mr. J. Richardsi said with regard to Pantgwyn water supply that he had heard a igreat deal of com- plaints about it to the effect that it was worse than ever. Rev, Alban Davies-It should be Pantdu not Pantgwyn (laughter). Mr. Evan Jones said Mr. D. P. Davies had been there and the tank had been washed out. Mrt W. Lewis said he did not see the use of their going there. It was simply a waste of money, and no good was done. Mr. Jr. Richards said that the item with reference to the report of the Roads Committee was not on the agenda, and Mr. W. Williams suggested that in future the words should be "to receive reports of committees," and not merely Plans Committed. In that way they couki include everything. The Clerk read some correspondence which had passed between him and Mr. T. M. Evans, clerk to tho Ammanford Urban Council. He said that it had been decided that the initial expenses in con- nection with the Amman Valley sewerage scheme, including the engineer's fee, should be borne jointly by these councils up to the time of the public en- quiry, and in this connection he submitted a bill for JB18. Mr. D. W. Lewis said they did not dispute their liability in respect to the preliminary expenses. What they objected to was the basis upon which their share of the cost was fixed. He admitted that they were entirely in this council's hands, but they objected to paying one-fourth. Whilst they had only two representatives on the committee the others' had four pach. Mr. Gomer Harries confirmed Mr. D. W. Lewis' statement that they had objected to the basis upon which the amount had been fixed, and added that Mrl D W. Lewis had never given in on the point. h. D. W. Lewis said that they were ready to pay their proper share and had suggested that a person should be appointed to arbitrate between them. Mr. E. Jones thought that it was only fair that they should bear an equal amount of the prelimi- nary expenses up to the time of the enquiry. Mr. J. Bevan failed to see that then was any way of getting out of it, and was understood to add that it would be mean on their part to try o do 60. Mil Wi Williams seconded that the amount be paid. There was no way of further reducing it. They had done their best. The motion was agreed to. The Clerk, during the proceedings, submitted two prints of the draft provisional order with reference to the Amman Valley Sewerage Scheme which he had received from the Local Government Board, and which they proposed to issue for the sonstitu- tion of the scheme. The Local Government Board asked that the same be returned within seven days so that it might be submitted to Parliament without delay for confirmation* Ho had written to say that it wouLd be impossible for him to lay before the council within seven days, but that there would be a meeting that day when he should submit as well as the joint agreement to the council. The condi- tions were the same as the Council had approved of. There was only one slight change in the Order. He thought that the original proposition was that the expeUses should be based on the population of the district. Instead of that they had now substituted that all expenses incurred by the Joint Board shall be paid out of a joint Common ifund to which each shall contribute in proportion to the number of in- habited houses constituting the respective district. It was decided to approve of the draft order, and that the Clerk should return the same to the Local Government Board) Other matters of minor importance also engaged the attention of the Council.

FROM THE "CARMARTHEN JOURNAL," FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1814. It may not be unworthy of remark, that the town of Milford took the lead of every other town in the United Kingdom, in celebrating by an illumina- tion and other demonstrations of joy, the entrance of the Allies into Paris; that auspicious prelude to the glorious and we trust, permanently happy events to which it has given rise. We have just received from a friend at Llanelly, the gratifying intelligence of a vesel having oleared out of that port for (France. At twelve "o'clock on Saturday se'nnight, the Flag at the Impress Rendezvous in Swansea was struck, amidst the joyful shouts of the assembled populace, and the establishment has ceased. A Circular has been issued by Lord Sidmouth, intimating that it is not at present deemed expe- dient to give permission to any yeomanry or volunteer corps to assemblo upon permanent duty. It is said to be the intention of Government, on the disbanding of the old County Militia, not to put the counties to the expenee and vexatious operations of a ballot for the peaco establishment, but to supply the place thereof by the present existing Local Militia, who are enrolled for four years. A column with a colossal statue of Sir Rowland Hill on its summit, is at last chosen by the in- habitants of Shrewsbury, as the most eligible mode of perpetuating the military exploits of that gallant General; and it will be forthwith erected at Shrewsbury, on an elevated and beautiful spot, situate between the east end of the Abbey Fore- gate, and the General Military Depot. A correspondent in the Oxford Herald states, that a farmer called last week on his landlord, a worthy and much respected magistrate of that city, to pay his rent, and presented the whole sum he required; when his landlord, taking into consideration the present very great reduction in the price of grain, generously gave back 501. of the rent he had received. John Williams, tinker, late of Swansea, was on Friday night last, committed to the gaol of the county of this borough, charged with having cut and maimed with a knife John Evans, servant to Mrs. Lloyd, of Dale, now resident in this town; he has been examined a second time, and com- mitted for further examination. It appeared in evidence that the parties, after attending a badger- bait on Friday evening, met at the Stag-and- Pheasant public-house, in this town; that John Evans having declared, that his dog- should fight any dog, and that ho himself would fight, any man, present, the prisoner damned him and his dog, exclaiming that he would fight him instantly; that upon the challenge being thus accepted, John Evans went out and stripped, and was followed by the prisoner, who swore before he left the house, that he would be the death of his adversary at the first blow. One of the witnesses deposed that blood was drawn at the first blow. andHat an alarm being given of the prisoners having a drawn knife, several persons rushed upon him, and wrenched it out of his hand. It being perceived that John Evans had been severely wounded, Mr. Williams, surgeon, of this town, was immediately called in to his assistance, when it was found that ho had received so deep a stab with a knife, on the left side of the neck, as to occasion a copious effusion of blood through his mouth, the tongue being lacerated: and that he had also been stabbed t in the left arm. near the shoulder, and in the left f cheek,. A large clasp knife, with a broken point, and stained with blood, was identified as the prisoner's, and the laceration which appeared in the principal wound corresponded with the jagged point of the same. We are happy to say that the unfortunate sufferer, who is a young man of good ,character, is considered in a fair way. The prisoner, John Williams, is about 18 years of age.
BIRTHS. On Monday last, Mrs. Tardrew, wife of Mr. Tar. drew, Chemist and Druggist, of this town, of a son. On Wednesday last, Mrs. White, wife of Mr. J. White, bookseller, of this town, of a son. MARRIED. At Llanelly, on the 9th inst., Mr. John Billing, master of the sloop Ebenezer, of Padstow, to Miss Elizabeth Ball, of the Union Infi, Llanelly. DIED. On the 4th inst., at Aberystwith, aged 62, Miss Cotton. This lady, who had just arrived from France, where she had been confined for the last eleven years, was liberated by a party of Cos- sacks. At Llandilo, aged 74, Mrs. Jenkins, relict of the lato Rev. Wm. Jenkins, who was 65 years Minister of that parish, and whom she Burvived 15 years. Left with a large family of children, for the most part unprovided for, her exemplary economy and industry enabled her to bring them all up in a. creditable and useful manner; eight of whom are still living, and who, with a numerous circle of friends, most seriously feel and deeply regret the loss of so worthy and so estimable a character. Lately, at Poft Royal, Jamaica, in his 33d year, sincerely lamented by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance, George Robbin, Esq., Com- mander of His Majesty's brig Snake. Captain Robbin, who was a native of Haverfordwest, entered at all early age into the Royal Navy, as a Midshipman, on board the Phoenix frigate, then lying in Milford Haven; and although unsupported by interest or connexion, except what his own meritorious conduct had procured him, he attained the rank of Commander, in a service in which he was equally respected and admired.
Manliness and Power Manliness and power are the two things to be admired, to be sought after, and aro to be obtained by studying the needs of the body, and serving it in proper manner. Man is constituted in a way that calls for a mixed diet. being* only partly carnivorous. Nature has provided him with one of the very best foods—grape sugar.—This is a substance which so builds up the body that it becomes powerful and manly, and gives one that incomparable health that makes life worth living. Grape sugar is 80 called because it is found in the grape, especially in those ripened naturally in the sun as in Greece. The little Grecian grape which we receive in the form of the Currant is full of pure grape sugar. Currants, by their inviting flavour and compelling attractiveness, arc always delicious to the taste, as well as highly nutritious. Have you tried this, the latest way of cooking them? STEWED Cobraxtb. £ lb. fine Currants, £ pint water, i Sb. sugar. 2 cloves, 1 pinch cinnamon, strip lemon rind, cochinael.
