HOLT AND FARNDON. ENTERTAINMENT.—A miscellaneous en- tertainment was given in Kenyon Hall on Wednesday, by the young ladies of Holt Hall school. The principal items were two sketches entitled "Done on Both Sides" and "Poor Pillicoddy," both plays being well acted. SHOOTING -NUTM.-Though the reading and recreation session in the Kenyon Hall Holt, began two months ago, yet the members are fewer than they have been for several years. The Rifle Club is almost a failure, ow- ing to several causes. The first match of the season was hastily arranged with Farndon on Tuesday. Farndon were the b-itte-r team until nearly the end of the match, when one of their members lost more t.han half his points, and Holt were declared the winners by 34. COURT LEET.—The court leet of the Lord of the Manor of Farndon (Mr. Harry Barnston) was held at the Nag's Head Inn on Wednesday. The steward (Mr. Henry Taylor) charged the jury, of which Dr. Parker was chairman, and the following members: Messrs. C. Hughes, W. Taylor, S. Shone, B. Edwards, G. Clubb, S. Williamson, J. Jones, G. Ince, W. Clubb, J. Jones, S. C ha loner and W. Lowe. They retired, and afterwards made their presentments and appointed the constables, burleymen and pindar, who were severally sworn in by the steward. Mr. S. Shone, the pindar, presented his case about tho pinfold and old lock-up at Farndon. It appears that the latter is now used for the purpose of storing the fire-engine, which belongs to Holt and Farndon Parish Council. A movement has been started to claim the old lock-up as the exclusive property of the fire brigade committee. It was decided nearly unanimously by the jury that the pin- dar be presented with two locks and keys for the purpose of looking after the pinfold and the engine house.—The proclamation was then made discharging the court, and the proceed- ing terminated. Afterwards the jury and the tenant &at down to an excellent dinner, served by Mr. Jones, the landlord, presided over by Mr. William Shepherd, the agent, who WM supported by Mr. Barnston and the steward (Mr. Taylor). The health of Mr. Barnston was proposed by Mr. Shaw (Crewe Hill) and supported by Mr. George Nice, who coupled with it in feeling terms the health of Mm. Barnston and the Misses Barnston.—Mr. Barnston thanked them for their kind expressions, and for the good feeling which existed towards him, his mother and sisters. He trusted they would support him during his presi- dency of the forthcoming Cheshire Agricultural Society's meeting. The health of the Steward was proposed by Dr. Parker and that of the agent by Mr. Clubb.
