DAMAGE TO CROPS BY GAME. An important decision has been given at Wareham County Court by Mr. Serjeant Atkinson in an action for damage to crops by rabbits and game, brought by a farmer named Arnold against Colonel Hambro, late High Sheriff of Dorset. The defendant had right of shooting over the manor of Bere Reigh, including the plaintiff's land, and owing to their being no fence or other means of preventing their escape, rabbits and game came from the defend- ant's preser e to the plaintiff's land, and did damage to crops to the amount of £10,for which the plaintiff claimed compensation. The question was whether a lessee of right of shooting over the lands of his lessor was liable for damage thus committed. The judge held that this case was governed by the principle of the decision of Fletcher Y. Rylands, and that the defendant was under obligation to keep the game bred and preserved by him so confined as to pre- vent mischief to the plaintiff's land, or to make the plaintiff reasonable compensatian. He, therefore, gave judgment for the plaintiff but, as the issue was im- portant, he gave, the defendant leave to appeal.
