The penalty for selling bread In any other manner than by weight is any sum not exceeding lOs. Bakers and sellers are required to use avoirdupois weight, and to fix in some conspicuous part of their shops a. beam and scales, with proper weights, in order that the fcread might be weighed in the presence of the purchaser. Persons conveying bread for sale are required to carry correct scales to weigh the bread in the presence of the purchaser, and the penalty on the seller for refusing to weigh any bread purchased by him is any sum not ex- ceeding £5. The notice is likely to prove of great local fceuefit, for the sale of bread by weight is the exception .&s.d not the rule in this neighbourhood. PROSECUTION OF A FISHMONGER FOR POSSESSING FOIH.

It is perhaps to be regretted that this prosecution, the source from which these fish were obtained under, was sot elicited. ORDINATIONS.
