ABERPORTH. Visitors are flocking daily to enjoy the bathing and the fresh breezes of this salubrious and beautiful place, which is pretty well thronged, the White Linn Inn and the Trewern Arms being very nearly full already, and the Ship Inn on the Traethaede being well filled, besides the private houses. It is a pity that there are not many more lodging houses built, but the village is fast improving, a post office was recently established, which is a great convenience to the inhabitants and visitors Sea-fishing has commenced here, and many of the visitor's and fishermen have enjoyed the sport, as well as the neighbouring gentlemen, G. M'Keg and Sylvanus Howells, Esqrs. have been, we believe, most fortunate with respect to mackarel and gurnets, their tackle, no doubt being super-excellent, and their skill commensurate, Some herrings have been taken in the nets during the few days past, and there is every appearance on the sea that the bay is abundantly full of fish.
