Q^'fturnpikement of the Holyhead Road.âThe Co a,-r,nan sai^ that a very important deputation, listing of the members of Parliament for °rth \Yales and the gentlemen appointed by Several county authorities of Denbighshire, jj Carnarvon-shire, and Anglesey c0 ^aited upon Mr. Shaw Lefevre, the first wOhlntrllssioner of works, with a view of knowing n amount of money would be granted by It overnment towards the repair of the Holyhead tim previous to its being disturnpiked. Some ago £ 40 a mile had been offered; now, ^^ever, they had offered £ 50 a mile. The atter, no doubt, would be fully discussed in the garter Sessions to be held the following week. 0 doubt this amount would be considered H j ^ate, but he (Capt. Best) was afraid it was Bless to expect any more. Mr. Lloyd Williams a^eatimated that £ 83 a mile would be required. J-xatt in Arrear.âThe Clerk reported that the P risij of Llansantffraid had not paid its call. Morris said he was assistant overseer, and he t ould guarantee that the money should be paid ° the treasurer the following day. j, Urveyor's Report.âThe following report of Mr. Vans, surveyor, was read:â <«ntlemen,âI have to report that one of the level j, at Trevor has been taken up, and the road tored to a proper form.

Each of the recent floods has injured the Vron oads to a great extent. The Corwen Sanitary ^â ithority has denied its liability, in any form, to ePair the channel or sewer which causes this injury, r to compel the owners, through whose land it Passes, to do so. I therefore thought it best to nlarge the drain across the road, and to make a J^table manhole, or cess-pit, to catch the storm ater where it enters the road, after overflowing UP ⢠Private property. J* "the floods have also caused considerable damage to 110 roads at Llanrhaiadr village. Here, again, the â¢prplexing question arises as to whose duty it is to alter, or amend the water courses and drains, nto which land drainage, road water, and house thwage have been turned; but until they are amended e same damage will occur at each flood. It is one the principles of sewerage that natural water °Urses should not be converted into sewers, but °uld be left to perform their proper function of arrying off rain water, and especially storm waters J .as long as houses are built without any regard to rainage, and there are no proper sewers, or the Xlsting channels adapted or altered on such principles 8 yill take sewage away readily, the same nuisance nl con tin n p. The house drains laid under along each side of the jPad at Llansilin village are out of order; the one on j east side, in particular, has completely s.lted up. have directed the attention of the owners to them, J*t without effect. Would it not be better to bring ^matter before the notice of the Sanitary Inspector? Hie Bye-law3 with regard to the width of wheels Passed in 1881 do not seem to have produced the effect, at any rate within your district. If I be allowed to express an opinion, this may be °counted for, firstly, by the maximum weight of Qnicle and loading being too much as regards wheels Qder 4^ inches. The district being so hilly, 3 or 4 j °r8es can only draw at most 3 tons 15 cwts. A 2-| wheel or any wheel is allowed this weight by the Sir John MacNeil, one of the best horities 011 roads, maintained that on roads ifflilar to ours the load on a road for a wheel 4 inches Me at the tire should not exceed 15 cwts., and for .oeels of less width, 10 cwts. If a bye-law based on ^ls data was drawn out, wheels under 4 inches for aggons and carts would be practically useless. In opinion the minimum width for vehicles drawn by art-horses should be 4| inches. Secondly, wheels of r,?y width can be used for agricultural purposes. his, and the foregoing laxity in the Bye-laws, renders ^.Possible for the whole of a farmer's traffic in your strict to be carried on 21 inches, or even wheels of es width, and this is the essential traffic. Thirdly, 0 officers for carrying out the Bye-laws are inade- VlUate, and perhaps not the proper persons. If the ahl °e w°re appointed, they would not only be .We to watch and carry out cases with undue interference with their ordinary duties, but they W0111cl escape the ill feeling which would be engendered tnong a class of people who may not at once see the Gnefit of the Bye-laws. Fourthly, it should be made COtnpulsory on the driver or owner of the cart, or the sUpplier of the goods, or on each of them, to state "hat weight is carried, and bo able to produce any ocument to prove it. Otherwise finding a weighing j^achine in most instances is a difficult matter. I j^pw of only two in your district of 350 miles of road, teel confident if Bye-laws revised so as to contain onie such provisions were properly carried out, it ,°iild effect a reduction of Id. in the pound in the 1ghway rate, or > £ 220 a year. Besides this, the eHefit to farmers would be very great; not only ^°nld the roads be more even and easier travelled over, Qt the reduction in horse power, or draft, would be considerable.

Width of Wheels.âThe Chairman expressed his ^Ufpriae that people did not appreciate the a.dvantage of having broad wheels to their carts waggons. Mr. Morris, Lloran, and Mr. Ki«hards, Yron Uchaf, said they would never a&s\ver on side-lands, as they would be continually Slipping, Mr. H. M. Jones remarked that if they Would save Id. in the pound by using broad Wheels, it would cost more than 2d. in the pound to Qave new ones. The Chairman said that was ecause they did not have broad ones at first. Scarcity of Road Material at Llanarmon.âA very 0ng discussion took place as to the difficulty eXperienced in procuring suitable stones for the repair of the roads in and about the village ot ^lanarmon, and ultimately it was resolved that rp waywardens of that parish, with Mr. White, rregelrlOg, should assist the Surveyor in the toatter. Messrs. Michael Thowas, and ilobertSj Blaen lal, were also appointed to assist the Sur- veyor in making the best arrangement they could with Mr. Davies, Dafarn Dywyrch, with regard to procuring stones for Bryneglwys Road. A Lost Cheque.âMr. John Hughes, Ty'n-y- celyn, wrote to say he had lost a cheque for 28s., which the Board had sent him. The Chairman severely censured such negligence, and said this was not the first case of the kind. Resolved that the question of issuing another cheque could not be entertained for the present. Drains at Llanrhaiadr and Llansilin.âThe Sur- veyor reported that the Llanfyllin Sanitary Inspector was directing his attention to the defective drains in Llanrhaiadr village, and the Clerk was instructed to write to the Inspector of the Oswestry Incorporation, calling his attention to the choked up drains in Llansilin village. Glyn Main Road.âThe Chairman said it was evident that it would take a long time for the stones to bind on this road, as there was so little traffic over it. It was a question whether the Board had not better cover the road with a coating of gravel, and perhaps it would be a goqd plan to get a steam roller over it. They must remember that whatever expense they would put upon the road, the Board would only have to bear the quarter of it. Mr. Evans, Tal-y-garth, said the worst part was that between the Queen and the New Inn, the other portion was setting pretty fairly. The Surveyor explained that the people used the old road between the two points men- tioned by Mr. Evans, as the new road was so rough to travel. After some further discussion the Surveyor was instructed to put a coating of gravel over those portions which needed it. The Chairman promised to ascertain from the County Surveyor whether he would sanction the use of a steam roller. It was stated that the roller would do about 300 yards of work per day. Mr. Evans, Tal-y-garth, promised to assist the Surveyor and the new waywardens in procuring the material necessary. Finance.-Cheques were signed for the payment of the usual accounts. The Clerk's bill for 13 Is. 9d. for postage and legal expenses incurred in the prosecution of Richard and James Jones was ordered to be paid. The Estimate.-The estimate for the current year was submitted to the Board, and a rate of 7d. in the pound made, the Chairman remarking that the rate last year was 8d. It was stated that the amount now in the hands of the Treasurer was £ 1000. This ended the business of the year. The Board then proceeded to elect the officers for the next year. On the motion of Mr. Morris, Lloran, seconded by Mr. John White, Capt. Best was unanimously elected chairman. Mr. White proposed, and Capt. Best seconded, that Mr. Morris, Lloran, be appointed vice-chairman; passed unanimously. The gentlemen forming the Finance Committee were all re-elected. A Discrepancy.âMr. Thomas Morris, Tem- perance, drew attention to the fact that the rateable value of the parish of Llansantffraid G.C., on the parish assessment book is £2,931, while the Highway Board rated the parish at £ 3,245. He had noticed that this had been the case for the last two or three years. The Clerk said it was difficult to account for the discrepancy, and advised Mr. Morris to communicate with the Clerk of the Peace upon the matter. SPECIAL SESSIONS OF THE PEACE, Saturday, April 5th.-Before G. LI. Dickin, Esq. Serious Threat.-James Jones (alias Jim Black), Vron Bachau, Llangollen, who was apprehended on Thursday night, under a warrant, was brought up in custody and charged as follows That on Wednes- day and Thursday last, he did threaten to kill and inflict bodily injury to the complainant Sarah Lloyd, a neighbour, whereby she was afraid of him, and prays that the said James Jones may be required to find sufficient sureties to keep the peace and be of' good behaviour towards the said Sarah Lloyd. Prisoner denied the seriousness of the threat, and said that he was as friendly with the complainant as ever.-Sergt. Griffiths deposed to apprehending prisoner on Thursday night.â'A certificate from Dr. Hughes was read by the Clerk, in which it was stated that he (the doctor) had examined the defendant Jas. Jones, and found him to be of sound mind and body. -At this juncture Mr. Hugh A. Jones was sworn in as interpreter, two of the witnesses being unable to give their evidence in English.-The prosecutrix Sarah Lloyd deposed that she was in the service of Mr. Ba ley, Bryn Collen. She generally went home at niffht, her father's house not being far from Bryn Collen. On Wednesday night, however, when she went home, she found defendant James Jones in the house. She had no sooner entered the house than prisoner said to her-" You are the d- that's against me. It is you who do all the mischief." He would have his revenge upon her for objecting to his keeping company with her sister. He would poison' her to the earth.-For some time now, prisoner was in the habit of coming to her father's house for potatoes, and latterly he had taken to coming there several times in the day, to which she (witness) very much objected. She ordered the prisoner out of the house as she did not want him to come there. On Thursday night, however, as she was going home, prisoner was standing by the stile which is opposite their house, sharpening his knife. Witness did not see the knife; but, as she passed, prisoner said to her This is the knife I am going to put through you." -She was afraid of him, and in consequence of the foregoing threat she informed the police of the matter. -Simon Lloyd, father of complainant, deposed that he and prisoner were neighbours and had always been on friendly terms. Prisoner was with him in the garden on Thursday, and was sharpening his knife for a considerable time. Witness asked him what he was sharpening his knife so much for ? when he replied that he had some use for it that night.-Prisoner said nothing more, and he (witness) knew nothing further in the matter.âHarriet Lloyd, sister to com. plainant, and sweetheart of prisoner, deposed that she saw defendant on Thursday night from the house door. He had a knife in his hand. He spoke to her and said-" Come here Harriet, I won't do anythingtoyou." -Witness went to him, when defendant said-" Your sister is going to have this knife to-night."âAfter this witness went into the house as she was alarmed at the remark prisoner had made. Defendant had been telling some neighbours that he would have his revenge upon her sister Sarah. Witness confessed to keeping company with prisoner, and to having engaged herself to be married to him. Witness, on being asked what influenced the engagement, whether love or fear, said that fear was the cause of the engage- ment, as prisoner had been telling some parties that if she would not have him for a husband, he wouM make her worthless to anybody else for a wife. And rather than receive any ill-treatment from him, she thought it better to consent to become his wife.â Prisoner, on being asked by Mr. Dickin if he had any questions to give to the witnesses, said he had.- prisoner to Sarah Lloyd Have I done any harm to you at any time ?âNo.âHave I ever touched you, or misbehaved myself in any way towards you PâNot until the night in questionâPrisoner No, and I have no ill-feeling against you at all. I am as friendly with you as ever, and I will speak to you in the street as frpelv and as friendly as before.âPrisoner to Simon Lloyd: Have I done any harm to you or your daughters ? â No. â Have we been other than friendly all along ?âNo.âDo you not come to our house very often to have a sit down and a chat ?âYes, and we have always been friendly,-Prisoner to Harriet Lloyd Have I ever done any harm to you ? -No.-Have we not always been friends, and are we not engaged to be married ?âYes.âHave you not been writing some letters to me PâYes.âPrisoner: Yes, and Sergt. Griffiths has them in his possession now.-Prisoner again to Harriet Lloyd: Did I not give you money to buy a wedding-ring PâYes.âAnd is it not our intention to be married down Ruabon way ?âYes.âPrisoner: Yes, and you were going to buy a new gown to-day, were you not ?âI was.âMr Dickin to Prisoner: There is no doubt but that you have been using threats to the complainant Sarah Lloyd; this is quite clear from the evidence just heard. You will, therefore, be bound over in the sum of X20 to keep the peace and be of good behaviour towards the said Sarah Lloyd, and towards all her Majesty's subjects, for six months, and you must pay lis. 6d. costs. And if brought up again, on a similar charge, you will be sent to prison. Having paid half the costs, he was released, being allowed a week to pay the balance. SPECIAL SESSIONS, Wednesday, April 9th.-Before Captain Best, R.N., and G. LI. Dickin, Esq. Larceny.-Elizabeth Williams (alias Lis y Cwm) Church-street, Llangollen, was brought up in custody charged with stealing a china_ cream-jug from the warehouse of Mr. Eobt. Jones, in Oak-street.âHugh Jones, hair dresser, deposed that Catherine Edwards a young girl living in Brook-terrace, came to their warehouse on Tuesday morning, and asked the price of half-a-dozen cups and saucers (which formed part of a complete set), and said that she had crewm-jug the same colour and pattern. We asked her where she got it from, when she said her mother had bought it from someone in Church-street. I then told Catherine Edwards to bring the jug down to seo if it was of the same colour and pattern-mark, and that we would sell her half-a-dozen very cheap. How- ever, the girl did not bring the jug down. We missed the jug on the 6th of November last. The article is of the value of a shilling. The taking of the jug broke on a set worth 13s. The set was placed on a table on the right hand in going into the warehouse. He could swear to the jug produced. About half-past one on Tuesday, as the girl did not bring the jug, they gave information to Sergt. Griffiths-Witness Cath- erine Edwards said she lived in Brook-terrace with her parents. About four months ago, the prisoner's little boy brought the cream-jug to their house and offered it for sale. She asked him where he got it from. He said that his mother bought it from Robert Jones, Oak-street, on the Saturday before that. We bought fhe jug and gave him 4d. for it. She went down to Robert Jones's warehouse, on Tuesday morning, saw some cups and saucers there, asked the price of them, and told them that she had a jag to match. They said that they belonged to a set, but if she would bring the jug down they would sell her half-a-dozen very cheap. She went home but did not bring the jug down. She intended taking it after dinner, but did not.âSergt. Griffiths deposed that about half-past one, on Tuesday afternoon, he received information from Mr. Jones that he had lost a cream-jug from his warehouse in November last, and said that a little girl from Brook-terrace had been there that morning, and told them that they had a cream-jug to match the set from which the identical jug was missing. He (the officer) took a cup out of the set, went to Brook- terrace, and saw the girl's mother. The mother showed him the jug and said that she had bought it from Elizabeth Williams, some 4 months ago. He then went to the prisoner and asked her if she had sold the jug to Mrs. Edwards. Prisoner said she did not remember doing so. However, afterwards she said she had sold it to the said person, and that it was all through drink.âPrisoner, on being asked which she preferred, being dealt with summarily that 'day, or tried with a jury, pleaded guilty, and stated that she wished to be dealt with summarily that day.- Hugh Jones expressed a hope that the bench would be as lenient as possible with prisoner, who had a baby in her arms, as her husband had been out of work for a considerable time.âThe Clerk also bore very good character to John Williams as a workman, and stated that he was now quite a reformed man. Sergt. Griffiths also bore good testimony to the husband as being a reformed and well-behaved man.âThe justices, having fully considered the case, inflicted a fine of 5s. and 8s. costs, Mr. Dickin expressing a hope that they should never see prisoner brought before them again. -Capt. Best also strongly advised prisoner to leave the drink alone, and doubtless she would wear another character. CORWEN. POPULAR ENTERTAINMENTs.-On Thursday, the 27th ult., the last popular entertainment of the season was held at the National School, and was presided over by Mr. W. Pattinson.

The hearing of the case caused some amusement. Judgment was given for the plaintiff for Y.1 5s. with costs.-Dorothy Jones sued Dd. Edwards, Ty'nllwyn, Llansantffraid, for 16s., amount of wages due to plaintiff. The defendant made a counter claim, the value of an account book which, he said, plaintiff had burnt. Mr. Louis appeared for the defendant. His Honour said he was of opinion that the burning of the book was a pure accident. Judgment was given for plaintiff.âDaniel Trow, mason, Corwen, sued John Arthur Jones, Owen Glyndwr Hotel, Corwen, for Y.1 16s. 9d. for wages due. Defen- dant disputed his liability.

Williams, sanitary inspector, summoned Mr. Elias Griffiths of Chirk, agent to Capt. Wynne Griffith, for costs of proceedings in this Court in nuisance cases on certain property in Cerygydruidion. As the sum- mons had only been served two days before the sessions day, the justices refused to hear the case, and a fresh summons was directed to be taken out.âMr. Jones, clerk to the Corwen Guardians appeared in support of summonses issued against the overseers of the parish of Llantysilio, for non- payment of arrears of call, amounting to £ 304, due from that parish to the Corwen Union. |The defendants did not appear.

The number that went out by rotation was seven, and for those seven seats there were thirteen candidates, all the old members offering them- selves for re-election. Mr. W. Bevan was the returning officer. The counting of the votes occupied from 8 30 a.m. to 4 p.m., the poll proving to be the heaviest ever recorded in Llandudno.

The medical profession are now ordering Cadbury's Cocoa Essence in thousands of cases, because it contains more nutritious and flesh-forming elements than any other beverage, and is preferable to the thick starchy cocoa ordinarily sold. When you ask for Cadbury's Cocoa Essence be sure that you get it, as shopkeepers often push imitations for the sake of extra profits. Makers to the Queen. Paris Depdt, 99, Faubourg St. Honore. BARMOUTH. LOCAL BOARD.âThe election of this Board took place last Friday, when three candidates, viz., Messrs. Hugh Williams, G. Griffiths, and H. W. Williams were elected to fill the vacant seats. Messrs. H. Williams and H. W. Williams were old members. RELIGIOUS.âThe Rev. H.

FOOLHARDINEss.-On Monday afternoon last, two young men, one hailing from Sea View-terrace and the other from Brickfield, and both said to be in some degree under the influence of the cup that inebriates, visited the Blue Bell, Llandrillo, where we are informed they were refused drink. They then wanted the use of a boat in order to have a sail. Capt. Roberts not only refused the use, but threatened legal proceedings if it were taken out. In spite of this, and unknown to the proprietor, the boat was taken and without oars. As the tide was going out at the time, the boat went with it, and when in Llandrillo Bay was noticed by some boys to be filling with water. They drew the attention of some men, when Messrs. Win. Williams, Jno. Hughes, R. Foulkes, of Glanymor, Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, put off in a boat and reached the sinking one just in the nick of time. Had they been a few minutes later both the boat and its occupants would have gone to the bottom, as the former was nearly full of water. To show their appreciation of the kind act of their rescuers the men offered to fight them. CURACY.âThe Rev. Stanley Davies, curate of Chirk, has been appointed curate of Llandrillo, and commenced his duties in this parish on Thursday.
