 -- On Monday last, an old man named JOHN SWAILES, who goes round the country selling matches, pins, and tape, found a very valuable gold watch, chain, and seals, in Loweswater, near Cockermouth.  As soon as he had found it he came direct to Cockermouth and sent the bellman round the town, and on Tuesday the property was found to belong to Captain STEELE, of Workington, who made the man a very handsome present for his honesty.
