GROSS RECKLESSNESS BY A MINER. At the Wakefield Court House, a case has been brought under the notice of the hell. h which shewed that, notwithstanding the recint. awful coiliery explosions, some miners are still exceedingly reckless. The prosecutors were lie: sis. Khodes and D.ilby, the proprietors of the Tic'oria Colliery, a place aoout mid- way between Waketieid and Pontefi-xct, and they charged one of their miners, named George Norming- ton, with infringing the rule. The de- fendant did not appear, and it WilS s..i.l he had absconded fromthe district. It was clearly proved that on three consecutive nighls the defendant had struck lucifer matches and lighted and smoked his pipe in a dangerous part of the underground workings, where Davy In'tips are only permit'ed to be uned, and where (ireboards were exhibited. When remonstrated with by some of bis fellow workmen and Ihe officials the-defendant treated the matter very coolly. The bench thought it was not a case which could be met by a fine, and therefore they sentenced the defendant to a month's imprisonment, with l aid labour.
