FROM OUR PRIVATE CORRESPONDENT. LONDON, THURSDAY EVENISG. We have had a little glimpse of royalty the Prince and Princess of Wales having been at Marlborough- house, from Monday till last evening, when they de- parted for Abergeldie Castle. The Morning Post in- forms us, they are to stop there for six weeks or two months, and then go to Sandringham. The Standard, however, says, that their Royal Highnesses will visit Denmark and if this is the case, I think they cannot remain so long at Abergeldie. The Queen, and the younger branches of the Royal Family will reside at Osborne till the close of the month. Then they go to Balmoral for the autumn. The report in the city, to-day, is, that M. Bille, the Danish Minister in London, has been re-called, and will not be re-placed. The Danish Government intend only to maintain one first-class mission, and that at Paris. To the Danish representative there will be entrusted the charge of any important business that may arise in En- gland. This report originated in an article in the Con- stitutionnel, and may be without grounds. I hope it is; and, although the arrangement would not be very com- complimentary to this country, it is just what we might expect from Earl Russell's meddling and muddling." I am happy to state that the D ike of Newcastle is so far recovered, that he was, I am informed, enabled to remove to Clumber Park, Notts, yesterday.—Mr. and and Mrs. Disraeli have left their mansion, at Grosvenor Gate, for Hughenden Manor, Bucks.—The Earl and Countess Russell are at Primrose Lodge, Richmond Park, from where, in a few days, they go to W oburn Abbey, Bedfordshire, where they are to receive a succes- ijion oi visitors. Prince Jerome Napoleon, (Murat) and his sister, the Princess Anne Murat, have been sailing along the Bri- tish coast in the North, and have landed several times. -011 dit, that one object of the visit of the King of Spain to Paris, is, to arrange a marriage between the Princess and the Infant Henry of Spain, who was for- merly a candidate for the hand of Queen Isabella. Prince Napoleon is also yachting along the English coast; he has landed and partaken of English hospi- tality. Offences and accidents are the common occurrences of the day.—On Monday, a terrible accident occurred at Bolton, in a manufactory where gas. tar is used as a raw material. An immense boiler, containing 3000 gal- lons of this tar, exploded, it is supposed from the chok- ing of some of the pipes, and scattered its scalding con- tents about. Three men in attendance were burned to death on the spot, and several others were severely in- jured. On Tuesday evening, a fire broke out in the tower of St. Peter's Church, Croydon, Considerable damage was done to the sacred edifice before the fire was extinguish- ed.— Yesterday, a female, named Emma Legge, wife of James Legge, an upholsterer, -her husband having left her, and she having neither money nor goods, drowned herself, in the Thames, at Cavershaua, just above Read- ing. The discovery excited the most painful interest through the town. Hanover and Prussia appear to be mutually dissatis- Red with each other. Hanoverian troops occupy Lauenburg; Prussia covets that Duchy, and has de- manded of Hanover the reason for the occupation.- The Hanoverian Government, on the other hand, has instructed its representatives, at Frankfort, that if the Diet is unable to obtain satisfaction for the events which have taken place "t Rendsburg, Hanover will withdraw her troops from Holstein. We learn from Paris, that M. Garnier Pages, and his friends mean to appeal against their convietion.- The Paris papers give a programme of the fetee preparing in honour of the King of Spain, who is not expected to arrive till Tuesday next. The great demonstration will be at Versailles. Ten thousand invitations will be issued. There appears to be some movements going on in Spain, of which we have received no intimation- But, the other day, several soldiers were arrested in Madrid; and a telegram from that city, dated the 9 th inst., an- nounces, that on account of the alarm existing there, the Government will take measures to preserve public order.—It was announced, yesterday, at Madrid, that two papers, for publishing seditious writings, had been brought before the military tribunal. The Official Gazette, of Turin, of the 6th, publishes a royal decree, enacting, that all rescripts or decrees of the bishops, appointing out treasurers, curates, or vi- cars, or containing measurers relating to ecclesiastical property, in all the provinces of the Kingdom, Sicily excepted, shall henceforth, be submitted to the King for his placet. Another arrival from New York, brings dates to the 30th of July. Atilanta was still in the hands of the Confederates but Sherman is represented to be draw- ing his lines round the town. It appears, however, that, on the 21st and 22nd ult., when, according to the Fe- deral accounts, the Confederates were repulsed, they defeated the enemy, and captured 19 stands of colours, and 2000 prisoners. A detachment under General Rousseau, had joined Sherman, after destroying 30 miles of the Mongomery and Atalanta railway; but Hardee was operating in Sherman's rear, and Wheeler's cavalry had defeated the Federals, and captured their camp at Deeatur. There is intelligence from Lee's and Grant's armies, but it is not very definite. Grant had abandoned the .J.. the siege of Petersburg, and intended to operate against Fort Darling; and he is said to have moved two corps to the north of James river. Apprised of these move- ments, Lee appears to have attacked Butler in his posi- tion at Bermuda Hundreds. Grant sent his second corps to aid his colleague, and the Confederates were defeated and driven back. Grant then advanced to at. tack the Confederate fortifications and when the de. spatches left the two armies were lighting. Gen. Early's corps had invaded Pennsylvania and, the Governor stated, in much greater force then he at first anticipated. Another Confederate officer, with 600 cavalry, was in Maryland; where the military authorities have arm- ed and equipped all the negroes. There is intelligence from Mexico to the 26th of I June. On the 20th, the Emperor issued a decree, an- nouncing that, in the event of his death, or of any acci- I dent rendering it impossible for him to perform the functions of government, the Empress is to act as Re- gent. Her Majesty is very popular; and the munici- pality of Mexico have ordered a triumphal arch to be erected in that capital to her honour.

THIS DENBIGHSHIRE BOROUBHS.—Mr. Townshend Maiuwaring, it appears, has made up his mind to retire srom the representation of these boroughs. So he said himself a little time since; and it may be assumed that this time he means to adhere to his resolution, as his old friends the Tories arc turning round upon him, and are providing themselves with another candidate.—Wrex- ham Advertiser. ROYAL COLLEGE OF SURGEONs.-We are glad to hear that Mr J. W. Jones (late pupil to Dr. Richards), having undergone the necessary examinations for the diploma, was admitted member of the college at a meeting of the court of examiners, on the 29th ult. He also gained the first prize, and a silver medal, for midwifery, at Charing Cross Hospital.

A FATAL OCCURRENCE.—Ou Tuesday last, Mr. Robert Edwards, brother of Mr. E. Edwards, ironmonger, of liaogor, and for many years employed as one of the foremen in the building yard of Messrs. Laird, Birkun- head, found dead in a basin at that place. It appears that deceased, in attempting a short cut from Seacombe, on Saturday night, missed his way, and fell into the basin. From four to five pounds were found in his pockets, thereby shewing that he did not come by his death through foul means. An inquest was held on the body, when a verdict of "Accidental death was re- turned. MOllNT HOUSE ACADEMY, UPPER BANGOR.—We un- derstand that Master Richard F. Jones, a pupil of the Rev. Josiah Thomas, M.A., of the above establishment, and son of W. Jones, Esq. (for many years senior church- warden of the parish of Liverpool), is among the suc- cessful candidates in the late Oxford Middle Class Exa- mination.
THE CARNARVON REGATTA. The Annual Carnarvon Regatta, under the auspices of the Royal Welsh Yacht Club, came off on Tuesday last, at Carnarvon, in the presence of a considerable number of spectators—more than we have seen on any previous occasion. The weather in the early part of the morning was wet and cloudy, and threatened to interfere in no small degree with the day's proceedings; but towards noon the atmosphere had cleared considerably, and a fine breeze for yachting sprung up, which exhilarated the spirits of all engaged or interested in the only acquatic sport which takes place in the Straits of the Menai. The band of the Royal Carnarvon Militia was stationed under Porthyraur, in a vessel moored for the purpose, from which the signal guns for sailing boats and rowing races were given, the order in which races were to run being announced by the bellman. The band played a variety of popular pieces during the day, and in first class style. There were several steam and other yachts in the river, not engaged in the racing, gaily dressed with flags and streamers of all kinds and colours, and flags were also hoisted on the clubhouse, the eagle tower, and on several other conspicuous points. The signal for starting was given at 12.40 p.m., at which time the first race—that of sea going yachts—was to start. Last year, our readers may be aware, that this race for a beautiful plate of the value of 40 guineas did not take place, for the reason that there were not the sufficient and required number of entries; and the same thing occurred for the cup, value 20 guineas, offered by the club; so that last year there was, in part, no yacht race at all. those untoward events, however, did not occur this year, thanks to the exertions of the committee, and the Rear-Commodore (Llewelyn Turner, Esq.), who, as it is known, is "the life and soul" of this popular gathering. We shall now, without further comment append the returns, premising that the sculler's race was not competed for, the reason for which we failed to as- certain. 1, A PIECE OF PLATE, value 40 guineas. Open to bona fide sea going yachts belonging to Royal Yacht Clubs. The distance was eight miles beyond Carnarvon, round the black buoy, and back to opposite Plas Brere- ton, and the flag ship. The yacht competing were the following, as entered in the programme Name of Yacht. Port. Ton. Owner u Name. Stanley L'pool 17 J. Gibbons, Esq. Queen L'pool 25 F. M. Ross, Esq. Secret Kingstown 30 T. D. Keogh, Esq. The two first took the lead, starting at 12.45, but the order iu which they appeared above was soon reversed- "Secret" making no secret of her sailing capabilities, and kept steadily a forward course, till she came in a winner, arriving off the flagship at 3.6 p.m. In three minutes after she was followed by the "Queen," and afterwards by the "Stanley." It Was a well contested race, ami we heard of nothing that would disqualify the owner of the "Secret" from becoming the owner of the much coveted Royal Welsh Yacht Cup. 2. A PIECE OF PLATE, value 20 guineas. To be sailed for by decked seagoing yachts belonging to the Royal Welsh Yacht Club. Nalue of Yacht. Port. Ton. Owner's Name. Bijou Dublin l Thos. H. Kane, Eaq. Circle Carnarvon 14 LI. Turner, Esq. Atalanta Carnarvon 6 Thos. Turner, Esq. The "Bijou" proved the beat, and deservedly carried away the piece of plate for which it competed The Atalanta" came in second, followed by the ''Circle." 3. SAILTV(L BOATS' PURSE of 8 sovereigns. Two prizes —1st prize, a sovereigns; 2nd prize, 3 sovereigns To be sailed for by open boats belonging to water: men. Name of Boat. Port. Ltb of Keel. Owner a name' Vawnog Car'von 22 feet Owen Hughes. Queen of the Straits Car'von 20 feet J. Jones (pilot). Fly Car'von 11 feet. Richard Gray. The following is the order in which they finally arrived at the winning point :-Qneen of the Straits, 1; Vawnog, 2; Fly, 3. 4. GENTLEMEN AMATEUR'S PBIZE PLATE, value 20 guin- eas. The following is the list of the boats which com- peted Name of Boat. Port. Name of Coxswain. Albany Liverpool W. Birkett. Pride of the Menai Carnarvon R. Jones. Lady Louisa Carnarvon E. Thomas. A fair start was made, Albany taking the lead, and the two latter following. But owing to some orders which the Rear-Commodore gave previous to storting being disregarded, Lady Low retreated, and did not proceed. The prize was very fairly won by the Albany. ó. JUVENILE AMATLOII'S PRIZE. Plate, value 10 guineas. The following is the result of this race:— Rifleman Carnarvon 0. Thomas-1 Rockett Ditto E. Thomas-2 G, PJUZE for Men of War, Yacht, and other gigs Purse of five sovereigns. Two prizes-first prize, four sove- reigns; second prize, one sovereign. To be run in heats. Name of Boat. Port. Name of Coxswain. Lbwelyn Carnarvon J. Hughei-i Rear Commodore Ditto John Jones—2 Slip Ditto Robert Lewis—3 7. PRIZE for four-oared gigs. Piiric of eight sovereigns. Two prizes-first prize, four sovereigns; second prize, One sovereign. To be run in heats. This was a spirited competition, especially between Llewelyn" and "Rear Commodore" —two Carnarvon boats, built expressly, if we mistake not, for this present Regatta. "Llewelyn" soon got ahead of the other com- petitors, which he kept till he came in victorious. But an unfortunate accident occurred to the third boat, Sir Richard," rowed by five Bangor men, which, as soon as it got into the channel, was seen to disappear under the rough sea, which caused some apprehension on shore as to the safety of the crew. Hear Commodore," how- ever, nobly turned to their rescue, "Llewelyn" keeping in her course, apparently unconcerned. This race hav- ing to be run over again, between "Llewelyn" and "Rear Commodore," the former again proved the victor. S. A Pair-oar race for a silk Jack. To be rowed for by gentlemen amateurs, without a steersmen. There were seven entries; but all did not compete. The Silk Jack was won by Helen, of Carnarvon, It. Ro- bert (name of rower). Two of the boats, we should state got foul, and it was with difficulty they could be extricated. Another unfortunate rower lost his two oars, and tried the only human contrivance possible un- der the circumstance, that of rowing with his two hands! 9. A Pair oar race for punts. Two oarsmen and a cox- swain. First prize, one sovereign; second prize, ten The "industry," of Carnarvon, and the "Alabama," ot Portdinorwic were the only two that competed; and tho former being disabled, the prize was awarded to the "Alabama." The customary Duck ifutit concluded the sports; but Mark, the noted old Duck, did not appear so agile and humorous as we previously saw him; still the affair caused a deal of merriment to the juveniles present. The utmost decorum and order prevailed during the day, any signs of disorder being instantly suppressed. The Mayor ordered one mau, who appeared a little worse for drink into custody, a step which could not but meet with the approbation of all those concerned in the future success of this meeting. A display of. fireworks took place in the castle; and all came to a happy termination by a ball being given at the conclusion.
CARNARVON. SWIMMING MATCH.—A very exciting swimming match took place on Wednesday last, in this town, between the following gentlemen :—Messrs. R. R. Williams, Richard Rowlands, Robert Roberts, and H. Jones. Mr. Hemmings, the C. R. C. trainer, was selected as umpire, the course beiug acros, the Menai Straits Mr. It. lit. Williams was declared the winner, the time oc- cupied from shore to shore being 18 minutes. The three other competitors were close together, and not more than twenty yards behind the winner. There being a heavy sea on at the time increased the excite- ment of the match. BOROUGH PUTTV SESSIONS (at the new Shire Hall), Monday, August S,-Befo, Llewelyn Turner, Esq., mayor; Tlinmas Turner, Es(l. and Owen .Ione, Esq. Drankcaaesf.—Jane Kale, an old offender, was charged with the above offence, and appeared in court with a black eye. P.C. IC) deposed to seeing her making arow oii U ednes- day week night, and when he requested her to go home to her husband she refused, and said she would sooner go to the lock-up, as her husband had been beating her. The accused, a good looking young woman, is constantly gcttiug into trouble by her abandoned conduct. She pleaded guilty, and was sent to gaol for 7 days, with a reprimand. Mary Jones, who stated she lived at Bangor, pleaded guilty to a like offence. P.C. 16 said that about half-past 11 o'clock on Wed- nesday night he was told by a party that the accused was drunk near the Royal Hotel, and although told to go away she refused. When he attempted to remove her she pulled out a knife; he then rushed upon her, and in the struggle she bit him fearfully. She was so violent that they had to carry her on a stretcher. The Inspector said she had recently come out of gaol, and since then she had been the greatest nuisance in the town, walking on the promenade in the day time, and accosting gentlemen she min;ht meet. The Mayor said he always took into consideration the plea of guilty, but her case was diSerent to the other woman. Committed for 1 mouth's imprisonment, with hard labour. Both women treated the court with great levity by laughing and making signs to the by-standers, until they left for gaol. James Moon was charged with a like offence, to which he pleaded guilty. He stated he was a discharged sol- dier, having served 10 years in India. He got hie dis- charge in 1861 from the 37th regiment. He had had the sun stroke, and when he got a glass of beer he did not know what he did. PS. Davies said that about 12 o'clock on Saturday night he heard a woman screaming in the Three Crown public-house, Bangor-street, who told him he was kick- ing her. As he refused to go out he locked him up; he was drunk. The mau pleaded hard to be let off on account of his wife and children. Committed for 7 days. Indecent assault on a young .'Ii"¡.-John Jones was brought up on remand for the above offence, the young girl being his step daughter. The prisoner resides in a court out of Penrallt. The evidence given appearing to the bench conclusive, he was committed, and at Mr. Powell's request, who de- fended the prisoner, to the Assizes. Bail was given for his surrender in two sureties of JE20 each, and himself in £ 40. Wholesale plundering of body linen.-Jane Griffith, lvmanded from last week for stealing clothes, the pro- perty of Grace Jones, was further charged and commit- ted on six charges for stealing body linen, &c., from Twthill, and other places on the outskirts of the town, while hanging out to dry. Second case.—Ann Jones, Snowdon-street, swore to a print gown as being her property, she having left it out to dry 5 weeks since on a gate behind the new houses on the Pwllheli road. P.S. Davies produced the frock which he found in the house of the prisoner's mother. The prisoner told him the gown was hers, and that she bought the materials off Mr. E. Owen, Bridge-street, and had it made into a dress. She said she had it for months in pledge at Liverpool. In defence, the prisoner admitted having told an un- truth about it. She did not know it was stolen; she bought it and paid for it. Committed. Third case.—Hannah Jones identified two shifts which she hung out to dry at Alalas, near the station, which were the property of Rt. Williams' wife. Emma Jones, server in Mr. Hamer's pawnshop, said prisoner pawned one of the shifts for 6d. on the 30th of June last. P.S. Davies proved finding the articles, one at the house of the prisoner's mother, the other at Mr. Hamer's. Prisoner, in defence, denied stealing them, but she had paid for them. Fourth case.—Elizabeth Williams, Bangor-street, iden- tifle(I an apron and shirt which she hung out to dry near the station. The apron was hers, and the shirt her brother's. Inspector Davies deposed finding the apron at the mother's house, and the shirt at Mr. Hamer's. Emma Jones proved the prisoner pawning the shirt on the 26tli ult. Prisoner was asked here if she would be tried sum- marily, but she preferred going to the Quarter Sessions. Fifth case.—Mary Lloyd identified a gown and hand- kerchief. She knew the former by a stain on the sleeve, and knew the handkerchief by the initials on it, part of which had been removed and part remained. Catherine Evans swore to them. P. C. Stephen proved finding the dress hid in a bush on the Pont Seiont road, and afterwards found it upon the prisoner. He knew it as he had extmined it when found in the bush. Committed. Sixth case.—P C. Stephen produced a child's frock, the property of Jane Hughes, found with the above. Jane Hughes swearing to the frock, the prisoner was committed on this the sixth charge.. For the defence, the accused said one Catherine Ro- berts sold them all to her, and that she paid for them, The police have still a number of articles found in her possession, or pawned by her, which they have great reason to believe are stolen. Anyone having lost any- thing while hanging out to dry, may obtain information by calling upon the police.

LLANFIGAEL. ANGLESEY COLLEGIATE ScuoOL.-Hy the Oxford LIst, just published, we find four pupils from the above School passed at the Local University Examinations—W. Nay- lor, aged 16; W. Conry, aged 15 It W. Jones, aged 15, obtaining the A.A. degree; and A Naylor, aged 12. the certificate. All the boys passed with a star to their names, shewing their proficiency in religious knowledge. It has been our pleasing duty before to chronicle the success of the above school at these examinations. In the course of the last two years, eight pupils have been sent from the Anglesey Collegiate School, ALL of whom have passed with a star to their names. The fact of Dr. Waymouth's pupils passing at so young an age proves the excellency of the education given at the An- glesey Collegiate School, and the parents must be highly delighted with the results. We sincerely trust we Iiall have yet to chronicle the further success of such an ably conducted establishment.
BETHESDA. On Saturday last, the monthly prayer meeting of the neighbouring churches was held at Glanogwen School- room. There were two gatherings, one at two p.m., and the other at six p.m. Each meeting was commenced by the Rev. J. Morgan, Incumbent, and members of the following churches took pai,t-Uaiillechid, St. Anne's, Gelli, Llandegai. Llanbei-is. and Waenfawr. The evening meeting especially was well attended, and we can safely say, that it was one of the most successful meetings that has been held for some time. The next monthly meeting is to be at Pentir. The Rev. J Wilkinson, one of her Majesty's Inspectors, has been during the past week inspecting the several schools in the town and neighbourhood, and he appeared greatly pleased with them all. ACCI))ENT,Wbiile ;t gentleman aml lady was driving from Rethcsda to Bangor, on Wednesday last, the horse took fright and ran away, and when near the Half-way House the carriage was upset. Both parties are greatly injured. It is a great pity that the turning in the road at this point is so abrupt. During the past few years, se- veral sad accidents have occurred there. It is to he hoped that the proper authorities will remedy the evil, for fear we shall hear next time of some lives being lost.
DENBIGH. NEW CLOTHIN': FOR THE VOLUNTEERS.—On Thurs- day last the Denbigh Volunteers were measured for new clothing by a gentleman representing the firm of Messrs. Hibbert & Co., military tailors, London. The imi- forms are expected to be forwarded to Denbigh within 14 days. THE HAUVEST.—The Vale of Clivyd farmers have been bnsily engaged this week in the corn delds with their Rcythea and ai?Ues. A)thongh the crops are not remarkably abundant, they are of an extraordinary good quality. We should think they will be gathered and stowed away in less than a fortiiiglit,-thiij the harvest will be over in the Vale, this year, before the time it commeuccd in former years. LIBERAL TREAT.—Last week, the liev. T. Thomas,, the much esteemed Vicar of Llanrhaiadr, near Denbigh, [formerly Vicar of Carnarvon], treated all the chil- dren of the Llanrhaiadr National School, and also the Church choir, to a splendid tea, &c., on the lawn in front of the Vicarage. After tea, several airs were sung by the choir, conducted by Mr. Parry, the schoolmaster. Many innocent and recreative games were also played. The following gentry were present—Rev. T. Thomas and Mrs Thomas, Mr. T. Thomas, jun., Rev. L. Wil. liams, J. Price, Esq., Captain Price, Rev. John Griffiths and Mrs. Griffiths, Llanynys, R. F. Birch, Esq. and Mrs Birch, Mrs. Mainwaring, Galltfaenan, Mrs. Mostyn, Se- grwyd, Mr. and Mrs, Wynne, Bachymbyd, Misses Wynne, Ystrad, Mrs. Luxmore, St. Asaph, Mr. Dud- ley, and Mr. Smalley. liogt of the above distributed prizes, toys, and silver coins, amongst the juveniles. The schoolmaster, we believe, has gained golden opinions in the neighbourhood, and a movement is in progress to present him with a tertimonial as a mark of the reppec-t in which he is held, and in consideration of his labours and zeal in teaching the children under his care.
FESTINIOG. Mr. Boorn's Great Russian Circus visited this place oa- Wednesday last. They exhibited in a ifeld adjoining the village. The tent was a splendid one, and the accommo- dation for the spectators was everything that could be de- sired. The feats were among the best we ever witnessed, and are well worthy the patronage of the public-
HOLYHEAD. LEGERDEMAIN.—On Monday evening litst, IIfr. Tern- pleton gave his well-known entertainment in Ventrilo- quism and Legerdemain, in the Stanley Market Hall, Holyhead, before a large and respectable company. The performance appeared to give the most complete satisfaction.
RUTHINf. LOCAL BOARD.—A meeting of the Ruthin Local Board was hel,1 in the County Rail, on Wednesday morning.. Ilresent,-J. J. Bancroft, Esq., Mayor; Aldermen Jones and Clarke; Councillors Roberts (Waterloo Inn), Roberts (Hand Inn), and T. Ronw. It was resolved- 1. That a cheque for £21,0, the seventh instalment, be drawn on account of the New Market Hall. 2. That £40, balance owing to the Gas Company, for lighting the town last winter, be paid. 3. To pay sundry bills, amounting in all to JE7 15s. 2d. 4. That the Clerk be authorised to write to Messrs. Poundley and Walker, architects, to ascertain their charge for drawing plans for lighting and water supply of the new Market Hall. 5. That the annual rent of M asked by Mr. Ablett Jessee for a site for a reservoir on Bathafani Farm, and the right to take water from Phis-y-Nant stream, for the supply of the town, is considerably more than the Iæcal Board feel iustified in agreeing to. With reference to the latter subject, it was suggested that the Board should endeavour to agree on terms to buy the site It is very much to be regretted that the Board have not been able to obtain the site long ere this—the town suf- fers from want of water, and the Borough revenue is ma- terially deteriorated. A vast amount of money is required to carry out the improvements begun in the town, an J were the Water Works in operation, a handsome revenue were the Witer Wor ks ?n (, o ??r e,e w the Boar?l, iis was might be obtained, to aid in releasing the Board, as was I observed by the Mayor, from the Mill-stone, as is at pre- sent round its neck.
I YSCEIFIOG. On Thursday, the 4th instant, the Lodge of the Loyal Order of Oddfallows, established at the Swan Inn, Ys- ceifiog, Flintshire, held their anniversary festival. At 11 o'clock, the members, dressed in the insignia of their Order, met at the above inn, from whence, preceded by the Holywell Brass Band, they went to the parish church to ask God's blessing upon their society. The- service was impressively read by the Rev. D. Williams, curate, and the Rev. W. Hughes, rector of Caerwys preached an eloquent sermon, well suited for the occa- sion Service being over, the members of the club re- turned to the inn, where they partook of a very sump- tuous dinner. After the cloth was removed, the usual loyal toasts were well given and heartily received, and, the evening was spent in a pleasant and decorous man- ner, characteristic of the body of Oddfellows throughout the kingdom.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. I It appears thftt an extraordinary suitor has ap- plied for the hand of the Queen—Theodore, Em- peror of Abyssinia. He sent the application through Mr. Cameron, the English Consul; and an answer not arriving so soon as he expected, he imprisoned that official, and had him put in chains. This being communicated to the Queen, an answer was despatched to his Majesty per post. Such is the story told in the French news papers. On Friday morning, the Prince of Wales, and Prince Louis of Hesse, left Osborne, in the Vic- toria and Albert, to visit the Channel Fleet, at Torbay. The Princess of Wales, and the Princess Louis met their Royal Highnesses on their re- turn, in the Elfi,) and they returned to Osborne in company. On Monday, their Royal High- nesses took leave of her Majesty, and arrived at Marlborough House with the infantPrince, Victor, the same evening. On Tuesday, the Prince of Wales presided at the uncovering of a statue erected to his late fa- ther, by the Licensed Victuallers, in the Old Kent Road. The weather was unfavourable, as there had been heavy rain all the morning but there was a numerous and fashionable assem- blage and the Prince, in reply to an address presented to him, expressed the pleasure he felt in seeing the honour paid to his father's memory, and his wish to follow his example. It was announced, on Friday, that the Post- master-General had cancelled the contract of the Royal Atlantic Mail Steam Packet Company, and that the affairs of the Company are now in process of winding up. The triumph of Lord Courtenay, at Exeter, has occasioned great disappointment to the Libe- rals in that city, andgaverise tori-its on the evening of the polling-day, and on Friday, when the num- bers were officially declared. Lord Courtenay was, on the latter day, pelted with stones, one of which wounded him in the face. More evidence has been taken this week to con- nect Muller with the murder of Mr. Briggs. The German Legal Protection Society of LondoD, on the other hand, are endeavouring to ascertain the precise movements of Muller, on the day of the murder, with the view of proving an alibi. On Monday, the first stone of a monument to be erected to O'Connell, at Dublin, was laid in Saekville-street, by the Lord Mayor. There was a long procession, with flags, banners, and music. —In the evening there was a banquet at the Ro- tunda. Lord Palmerston arrived at Holme House, Lightcliffe, the seat of Mr. Ripley, President of the Bradford Chamber of Commerce, on Monday evening and on Tuesday, he went to Bradford, to lay the first stone of the New Exchange. There was a great display at Bradford, and along the route from Lightcliffe, of flags, banners, and other decorations, on Tuesday morning, and crowds of people. Several showers fell, as the noble lord, and his numerous attendants went in procession, from Peel Park, to Market Street, the site of the intended building. But the sun burst through the clouds when the pro- cession arrived there, and the ceremony (preceded by the presentation of an address to his lordship) was performed under the influence of its inspir- ing rays. After the ceremony, there was a grand diunerat 8t George's Hall, at which several ad- dresses were presented to the Premier. The working-classes had adopted one to present to his lordship, reproaching him for his for- saking the cause of Reform, which the manag- ing committee refused to present.—After the dinner, Lord Palmerston returned to Lightclifie. —Ou Wednesday, he went to Saltaire, the resi- dence of Mr. Titus Salt, and returned to town in the evening A very destructive fire took place on Thursday, when the mansion belonging to the Marquis of Londonderry, on the banks of the Thames, near London, was destroyed. Three years ago, Col. M'Murdo, the Inspector of Voluuteers, took the house on a seven yean, lease. He had furnished it very handsomely; but independently of the furniture, which can be replaced, there was an extensive armoury, in one of the rooms, contain- ing arms which had been presented to the gallant Colonel, of nearly every description of bore. In the drawing-room, were, also, a number of gold presentation medals, placed under glass shades for protection and in fire-proof safes, were many valuables, amongst them, a gold-mounted isword, which 11 a. presented to the Colonel by some In- dian chiefs, when he was serving in India. The oouservatories contained a great many orange trees and exotic plants—which are destroyed and the trees and flower beds in the garden, are also completely ruined. The loss must be very great. The Colonel was absent at the time his lady (who was the daughter of the late Sir Chas. Napier), gave particular directions to the firemen to be careful in preserving every relic or part of one that might be found in the debris but very little is saved. An appeal has been made to the volunteers, to come forward with some tes- timonial to the gallant Colonel. On Friday forenoon, at half-past 11 o'clock, a tremendous explosion took place at the powder mills of Mr. S. Sharp, at Chilworth, near Guild- ford,-wliiell occasioned destruction of both life and property. What caused the explosion, no one can tell; it took place in au instant shatter- iug the pressing-shed, a detached building, in which it originated, almost to atoms large pieces of machinery, portions of the roof, and timbers, being hurled some distance round; and one pon- derous piece of machinery was found a quarter of a mile from the place. Two men were at work in the abed, and were blown to atoms, their truoks being found ftt a distance of 200 yards. The sparks, or burning timbers, set fire to two ricks of hay, whioh stood 150 yards from the mill and several houses, including that of Mr. Goodwin-Chester, one of the county magistrates, which was 250 yards from the mills. In that mansion, the furniture in many of the rooms, was lifted from its place, and no fewer than 60 windows were broken. At the Percy Arms, close to the Chilworth Station, the roof was injured and the windows all smashed. The violence of the explosion may be conceived, from the fact, that a man who was standing on the edge of a lime quar- ry, three miles distant, felt the shock, and was nearly precipitated over the bank. It appears that the Russians succeeded in get- ting into their hands, the chiefs of the Po- lish National Government," 16 of whom were tried, and condemned to death. On Friday, the 4th inst., M. Fraugett, described as "the head" of that Government, with four others-Krajew- ski, Foryski, Zulinski, and Jezioranski—chiefs of departments, were hung on the glacis of the cita- del, Warsaw. The other 11 will not be executed, but some will be subjected to hard labour for life, while others will be imprisoned in a Siberian for- tress. At a private sitting of the Danish Rigsraad, on the hit inst, the President of the Council an- nounced, that an armistice had been concluded. —The intelligence was received without remark, or manifestations of opinion on the 2nd a mo- tion was brought forward and supported by a con- siderable number of the members, to the effect, that the silence was not to be construed into an approval of the conduct of the Government.—On the 4tli, furloughs were granted to all the recruits of the Danish army, who were undergoing prelim- inary drill; and the troops stationed at Fuhnen began to arrive at Copenhagen. On the 6th inst., the Session of the Rigsraad for Denmark Proper was opened by the King, who said in his speech,—"Having been abandoned by all Europe we are obliged to seek for peace with our overpowering enemy. It is hard to have to have to make such sacrifices, but still harder to prosecute the war. Union between the King and and the people, may bring about a happier fu- ture." The preliminaries of peace, as published at Co- penhagen, on the 2ud inst., are, the complete ces- sion, to Prussia and Austria, of Holsteiu, Launen- burg, and Schleswig, together with the Jutland enclave, the town of Ribe excepted. The present occupation of Jutland, by the allies, to continue till the conclusion of peace. The Duchies are surrendered in their entirety, without any reserva- tion the public debt is to be paid by Denmark, by the Duchies, or by Denmark and the Duchies, according to the terms on which it was contracted. Full liberty to dispose of the Duchies is uncondi- tionally granted to the two powers.—-It was stated that the Federal Execution in Holstein must now enter into a new phase, since there no longer ex- ists any object for its continuance." And it was reported at Vienna, on Tuesday, that Austria and Prussia have entered into negociations re- specting the establishment of a joint provisional government in the Duchies and that they intend to make the proposal to the Diet. In the sitting of the Diet on the 4th, the claims of Prince Frederick William of Hesse, to Lauen- burg, were brought before the representatives. It appears, his Highness, also puts forth his heredi- tary rights in Denmark, as the treaty of 1852 is setaside. Duke Charles of Schleswig-Holstein- Sonderburg-Glucksburg, the elder brother of Christian IX., has sent a meirorial to the Diets, protesting against any claims compromising the rights of his House. Oil the 3rd, 1000 soldiers, natives of Schleswig, who had been discharged from the Danish army, arrived at Flensburg. There were loud rejoicings, both by the soldiers and the people on the occa- 8ion.-The same day, a meeting was held of the clergy and gentry of Kiel, to adopt a petition call- ing for a common Government for Schleswig-Hol- stein, under the protection of Prussia. There were only 23 persons present, of whom five refused to sign the petition. The trial of M. Garnier Pages, and 13 other persons, on a charge of illegally convening an elec- tion meeting of more than 20 persons, commenc- ed on Friday, and terminated on Saturday, before the Court of Correctional Police, Paris. The Court, after deliberating five hours, found a ver- dict of guilty, and each defendant was fined 500f. ( £ 20) and costs.-On Sunday, the Emperor arriv- ed at St. Cloud, from Vicliy.-Oti Tuesday, at 5 p.m., the King of the Belgians left Paris. He arrived at Brussels at 9 p.m., and proceeded to Lacken. Victor Emmanuel is amusing himself with hunt- ing, and other diversions, in the Valley of Aosta, and occasionally goes to Turin. Prince Humbert left Italy this week for Paris, where he will be present at the fete of the 15th. Subsequently, he will visit other parts of France, England, and the Banks of the Rhine. He travels incognito, it being his father's wish that he should visit, and make himself acquainted with the most civilized countries of Europe. Spain still appears to be the seat of some iuter- nal dissensions. On Saturday, several sergeants of the Suboya regiment were arrested at Madrid; and the Epoca of that city remarked, the next day, "this measure appears to have some serious motive, although Madrid is tranquil." The King of Portugal is at the Palace of Al- ferte, practising, on the sands of the Tagus, a new cannon of his own invention.—The 5th inst., was the anniversary of the establishment of the Constitution. The King received the municipal authorities of Lisbon on the occasion, and said he would always maintain those institutions which contributed to the prosperity of the people.-On Tuesday, his Majesty held a Cabinet council, at which it was resolved to permit the establishment of a limited number of religious houses.—A tele- gram of that date, states, that the elections are fixed for the 11th of September and that the vines are suffering from the intense heat. A telegram from Athens, dated the 3rd inst., states, that the Ionian Deputies had arrived, and had met with an enthusiastic reception. They took the oath of allegiance on that day. when the verification of the elections was declared complet- ed, and M. Deliorohi was re-elected President of the National Assembly. A new ministry had been formed, with Admiral Canaris President of the Council, and Minister of Marine and the dis- cussion was to commence on the 6th. Advices from Constantinople, to the 27th of July, inform us, that the missionary difficulty at the Turkish capital is, happpily at an end. The book-stores itudoffices of the several Protes- tant societies have been re-opened freedom of worship is allowed in chapels and meeting-rooms, but not in Khans and other public places the .sale of the Bible is is permitted in book-stores, but colportage, and the gratuitous circulation of works attacking the Mahommedan faith, are prohibited. A telegram from Constantinople dated, the 5th inst., states, that an Arab insurrection had broken out below Bagdad and the Turkish troops had been defeated in three engagements, losing three guns.—The cable of the Persian Gulph telegraph has been broken. It is not known from what cause.. A letter from Bucharest, stales, that Prince Couza has published a decree, which has been been welll received by the public. The first arti- cle enacts, that the different faculties existing at Bucharest, shall be henceforth united, and take the title of University of Bucharest." This is the tirst time an establishment of the kind has been known in Romania. Advices from Tunis, to the 31st ult., render it ??,,?h.) ,h?thpr theinsurrectioii call be comider- ed as at an end. The Arabs are dissatisfied and blame their chiefs for having treated with the Bey, without obtaining the dismissal of the Kis- nadar. The French and Italian Admirals had sent two ships of war to the coast, to protect the subjects of those nations. We are glad to learn by an arrival at Liverpool, with dates from Western Africa, to the 21st ult, that all the British troops had been withdrawn from the Ashantee frontiers. Several telegrams have been received from Suez. One, dated Calcutta, July 6, states, that, "the King of Ava has granted a perpetual con- cession for railways, telegraphs, and collieries, in Burraah." A second, from Singapore, date July 6, announces, that" 8,000,000 lbs. of tobacco leaf had been destroyed by fire at Manilla. A third, from Melbourne, of June 26, gives the informs tion, that "the latest advices from New Zealand, report no further military operations and that the troops had gone into winter quarters." The Australasian, on Saturday morning brought intelligence from New York to the 27th ult. On the previous day, Mr. Fessenden, had called for subscriptions to a popular loan of 200,000,000 dollars, at 73-10ths per cent. Atalanta has not been taken, as reported in the previous arrivals; but the Federals were in great force; and all the railroads leading to the town from the east, west, and south-west, are re- ported to be destroyed. On the 21st, the Con- federates attacked the Federal positions near Atalanta. The fighting was fierce, and was con- tinued the next day. The Federals claim the victory. They admit a loss of 2,500 men but say the Confederates have lost more than 7000. On the 23rd, the fighting was suspended, the wounded being removed, and the dead buried, on both sides, under a flag of truce. It was not re- sumed on the 25th. The Federal force left in the Shenandoah Val. ley, after the pursuit of the Maryland invaders had been abandoned, were attacked near Win- chester, on the 24th ult., by the Confederates, under General Early, defeated, after a severe en- gagement, and driven through Martinburg to the Potomac, with heavy loss of men and artillery. The Confederates occupied Martinburg, and com- menced destroying the Baltimore and Ohio rail- way. Smith's expedition had returned to Memphis for supplies, after having defeated Forrest in five engagements.—Grant still remained inactive be- fore Petersburg.
RHYL. EXTRAORDINARY EXCURSIONS.—This town has been visited by an immense number of excursionists within the past week. On Saturday, the 6th, a very heavy ex- cursion arrived here from BirminghnID and Wolverhamp- ton, and returned on Monday, on which day another im- mense excursion came from Bradford, Leeds, and Hud- dersfield as well M two long trains containing the work- men of Messrs. Thornycroft, Wolverhampton. On Tues- day, the town was thronged with people, and their gene- ral demeanour was highly commendable. They heiii-tily enjoyed themselves on the sea shore, and not a few avail- ed themselves of a trip by the Lion, oil Monday, to Llan. dudno Bay. Others seeked pleasure in small sailing and rowing boats. The greater portion of them left in the course of Wednesday. A FEMALE PICK-POCKET.—Jane Hamilton, a respect- ably dressed woman, was taken into custody on Saturday evening last, charged with having attempted to pick the pockets of a hdy, in the Railway Station. On Tuesday' she was brought before John Churtou, Esq., but in conse- quence of the absence of a witness, who had left the town on the previous day, she was discharged with a se- vere reprimand.
