COUNTY COUEtT.-The bi-monthly County Court for this district was held on Friday, 17th inst., in the Town Hall, before James Maurice, Esq., the Deputy Judge. Jones v. Vale of Clwyd Railway Company.-The plaintiff, Mr. J. R. Jones, Lleweni Hall, sued the Com- panny for X4 15s., damages for the loss of an ox, which had met with its death by the. alleged negligence of the Company's servants. Mr. Louis appeared for the plaintiff and Mr. Eyton for defendant. It appeared that on the 21st of October, 1864, two trucks of cattle had been sent from Carnarvon to Den- bigh for plaintiff. They were unloaded at Denbigh Station at night alongside the passenger platform, in- stead, as was alleged on behalf of plaintiff, at the regu- lar cattle platform. A few bulloiks became infuriated and ran down the line in the direct on of Rhyl. Oil be- ng turned back near l'las Clough britge, one of them umped over the line into the road, and died almost nstantaneously from the effects of the fall. It was shewn on the part of the defence that the pas- senger platform was in every respect a convenient and proper place to unload the cattle, and Mr. Eyton con- tended for a non-suit on the ground that no contract was entered into between the plaintiff and the Vale of Clwyd Railway Company. The JUDGE observed that he could not see that there was any contract except with the authorities at the Carnarvon Station, and according to law that did not render the Vale of Clwyd Company liable in this action. The plaintiff was therefore non-suited.
