LORD PALMERSTON.- On Thursday last, Lord Palmer. ston who has been paying a visit to the Festiuiog quar- ries this week, arrived in Portmadoc from Tanybwlch. He arrived at I o'clock, and left en route for Carnarvon at 3 in the afternoon. Whilst in the Port he visited Mr. Matthew's Wharf and also that of the Welsh Slate Company's, of which he is the chief proprietor. His Lordship appeared to enjoy excellent health. THE MARRIAGE or Miss GREAVES.—On Wednesday last Portmadoc and Tremadoc were very gay indeed, there being a good deal of rejoicing on the joyous occa- sion of the marriage of Miss Greaves, daughter of J. W. Greaves, Esq., Festiniog, but whs resided for many years at Tanrallt uear to this town. It is not too much to say that Mr. Greaves and his family are respected and esteemed by all classes of Society, he having been con- nected with the district for nearly thirty years as a Quarry Proprietor; and on the occasion of his daughter's marriage every person resolved to shew some sign of re- joicing. Early in the morning almost every ship in the hara?r hoisted flags, and some were very g&Uy decorat- ed. FI? were UkewiM hung out at the *Mce of Mr. ? Mathew, on the front gate of Mr. 1). Homfray, at the Featiniog Railway Station, at the Commercial and the Sportman's Hotels, the Australia Inn, Mr. Robertil's; (New Shop) at the W. P. Rank, at the Head Quarter* of the Volunteers, Mr. Roberta, saddler, Mr. W. Lloyds; Shop,—at Dr. Roberta's, and from the ii(itzie of Mr. Hugh Davies, tailor, aud from a great many other pri- vate house,. There was also a large flag hoisted opon. the "Island" by Mr. Percival, another at Thos. 1 Prosser'ti, and aldo at Phs-yn-Penrhyn, oil the other side* of the embankment. Cannons were fired off all day both. ill the Port and "t Tremaduc, so that both towns had a lively day of it throughout. In the evening, Mr. Strowger's house presented a moat brilliant appearance,. as in front of it was suspended a great number of col- oured lamps; and the house of Captain Roberts, of the "Edith," in Garth Terrace, was nicely illuminated,- and looked very pretty from the Port, and from the embankment. A serious accident had well nigh occar- red, with the cannon, but luckily the injury sustained- was not very great. Mr' Morris Pierce was busy prim- ing one of the holes in the rock, when from some cause- the powder ignited, and the charge went off right in Morris's face. His face was a good deal scorched; but fortunately his eye {M orria has but one) escaped without. any injury.
