DUNGLEDDY PETTY SESSIONS.—These sessions were held at Cross Inn, on Friday. The business was very liaht.

LECTURE ON 'SELF CONQUEST. The Rev Richard Huberts, of London, delivered an excellent lecture on the above-named subject at the Wesleyan Chapel, in this town, on Monday evening week. The Rev James Hartle, the superintendent minister of the circuit, occupied the chair. The lecture was highly popular, abounded with apt illustrations, and occupied in its delivery about two hours; its teaching was souod to the core, and may be summed up in the words of scripture, He that ruleth his own spirit is better than he that taketh a city.' Th lecturer was frequently and warmlyjapplauded as he pro ceeded, and when he sat down the applause was hearty and long continued. HAVERFORDWEST AMATEUR MUSICAL SOCIETY.—This Society, under the direction of Mr W. L. Harding, gave a concert at the Shire Hall on Monday evening. The attendance was very numerous, the Hall being filled in every part. The entertainment consisted of vocal and instrumental music, and was rendered to the entire satis- faction of the audience, who frequently testified their approbation by loud plaudits. The instrumental music was excellent, and was greatly applauded; and the vocal portion of the programme was given with the same gratifying result. The entertainment throughout was a great success, and considering that it was wholly sus- tained by amateurs, the skill displayed by the members of the Musical Society, and those who assisted them, was not only creditable to themselves but also to the town of Haverfordwest. The following is the programme rendered on the occasion PART 1. 1 Overture—'The Bronze Horse,'—Band. 2 Trio-, Come Fairies trip it on the grass,Mrs T. James, Mrs W. M. Phillips, and Mr 'V.

Several events have tended of late to direct attention to the inertness of the nuisance authorities in various parts of the country, and no little discussion has taken place in reference to the power conferred on the Home Secretary by Clause 49 of the Sanitary Act to deal with negligent boards. Most persons believe that by the section in question the Home Secretary can compel local authorities to do what is necessary for tne health and comfort of the community, should they decline to take any steps voluntarily. There is some doubt of this. Last summer a memorial was addressed to the Secretary of State for the Home Department by Mr Woody, of Tamworth, requesting that an inquiry might be made into the sanitary condition of that place. Accordingly, on the 1st of August last, an inspection of the borough was made by Mr R. 'Morgan, C.E. This inspector recom- mended that the Town Council 'should take into their most serious consideration the immediate construction of works of sewerage and water supply, to abate the existing nuisances, and thereby lower the excessive rate of mor- tality.' But this body has resolved, in spite of the recommendation of government. that works of sewerage and water supply are not required within the borough. Their determination was made known to the government, with a request that the provisions of the act might be enforced. In the reply from the Local Government Act Office. dated October, 17, 1867, it is stated inter alia, that 'the Home Secretary feels that he has no power to compel local boards, or other governing bodies, to construct, sanitary works, not even upon the powers of the 49th section of the Sanitary Act of last year.' Mr J. B. Hutchinson, in his exposition of the Sanitary Act, which. has just been published, says, that by the 49th section, 'power is given to the Secretary of State on complaint, &c, to take the necessary s'eps for carrying out the provisions of the act, to make inquiry, &c, and it he is satisfied of the laches of the authority complained against, to make an order on such authority to perform its duty, and if such order be not obeyed, to appoint some one else to do the necessary work, and direct the amount of remuneration to be paid by the local authority in default, who, should it be necessary, may be proceeded against ;n the Queen's Bench.' This is the evident ren- dering of the Aft, but it would seem that the Home Secretary thinks otherwise. The point in dispute should be cleared up at once.
HAVERFORDWEST PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Thursday, before the Mayor, J. W. Phillips, Esq, and James Bowen, Esquire. DRUNKENNESS. Charhtte Dawson was charged with drunkenness in the vicinity of the Shire Hall on Saturday, the 14th inst. The defendant was reported to be in cuslodio kgis, and consequently unable to attend.

William Phillips was charged by George Llewellin, of North Gate, with wilful damage. Neither party appeared, and it was stated the com. plainant and defendant had arranged matters out of Court. The Mayor observed that the case could not be settled without the permission of the Bench. Supt. Cecil said that he had informed the complainant that the case could not be withdrawn without the consent of the Bench, and he had promised to attend. The case was postponed for a short time, and neither party appearing, it was struck out. The Mayor: I wish it to be understood that when parties settle charges out of Court, they must ask for and obtain permission of the Bench for that purpose. The Bench will not sanction the settlement of cases out of Court unless the parties come here to ask for permission to do so. You will be good enough, Mr Cecil, to inform Mr Llewellin of that.
ROOSE FETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire. Hall on Saturday, before O. E. Davie?, Esq, A. B. Starbuck, Eôq, S. Har- ford, Esq, and J. P. Jones, Esq. TRESPASS. William Morgan, of Llanstadwell, was charged by William Davies with trespassing on land in his occupa- tion on the 12th of March. The defendant said be was guilty of being on the com- plainant's land. He went to the land to see if there were any furze there which he could purchase of the com- plainant. The complainant deposed that the defendant called at his house and enquired if he had any furze to sell. He told him he had not. The defendant went away, and the complainant, fearing from a previous transaction between defendant and his (complainant's) wife that the defendant would go and cut his furz", went after him, and found him on the land. The defendant displaced some thorns in getting over the hedge, which were replaced by him (complainant.) If he had employed a labourer to repair the damage, hs could not have paid him less than sixpence. He claimed one penny damages. After some conversation between the parties and the Bench, The case was withdrawn on payment of costs by the defendant. APPLICATION FOR LICENCES. Thomas Child, of Hubberstone, applied for a license to keep an ale house in the village of Hubberstone. Mr Starbuck and Mr O. E. Davies were in favour of granting the application. MrJ. P. Jones and Mr Hirford voted for the dismissal of the application. The Bench being equally divided, the licence could not be granted. The applicant was directed to renew his application at another sessions. Mr Green applied for a license for a house at the Bridgend, Hakin. It was stated that there were about 16 licensed houses in that neighbourhood, and the Bench refused the appli- cation.

William Newby deposed I am a clerk in Her Majesty's Dockyard at Pembroke, and in the cashier's department. I have been there about fourteen years. I know the prisoner. He was employed in the Dockyard as a hired shipwright for a few months prior to December last. I distinguish a hired shipwright from an established one. In the month of December last he had the offer of being established. Such persons must not be over 35 years. The document produced marked C was handed to the prisoner to fill up. He returned it to me as it is, with the exception of the date 31st December, 1867. The order for his establishment is dated 6th December, 1867, and then he was furnished with the p^iper marked C, and was told to bring a certificate of his birth. He brought the paper C and also this paper purporting to be a cer- tificate of his baptism. On the 13th December, 1867, prisoner left the alleged copy certificate and the paper C with me, and I acted upon it in my capacity as clerk; at that time he was employed in the yard as a shipwright and continued in it until February last, when he was discharged upon his own application.

Whilst searching in the back premises in an old oven, I found the five boots pro- duced, and I asked him how he became possessed of them. He said first that his boy got them, then that a soldier brought them there, and he did not know who he was. I took possession of the boots. There was no more than two or three minutes between each answer, and I re- J ported the same to the military authorities. Wm. Galloway deposed I am Corporal in the 36th Regt.

I knocked at the door, and the son came and looked through a hole in the door, which was fastened after three or four minutes it was opened by defendant's wife, whilst I was at the door: through the the same bole I saw the son take the quart measure from a room and take it to the back premises. I saw him all the while. I asked Mrs Morgans bow she allowed drinking at that time of the day: she said nothing. I showed her where the quart was put by the son: there was a pint in it. There were two young men, Baker and another sailor in the room where the son took the quart from..

The table was fresh marked with jugs. I went into a back room used as a cellar, and there I saw one quart nearly full of beer, and an empty glass. I endeavoured to open the door to see if the beer was fresh, but failed, as a young man concealed himself behind the door. I showed the beer to the daughter.

He left me then, and on the 13th of December he produced the paper 'C.' and the paper marked B' in red ink, as the certificate of his baptism, t then furnished him with the form marked 'D.' He told me he was born at Rhos, in the parish of Slebech, on the 12th of August, 1832. I filled those particulars in the declaration 'D,' for him.

The body of the certificate produced is in my wIfe S handwriting marked H, and is signed by me with my left hand, but is not the certificate which f gave to the prisoner's relation in November. It is like it in every respect. The name in the Register is spelt I Nute., The paper B in red ink I have seen before: it was sent down to me by the Civil Service Commissioners. I returned it to them by post. Cross-examined by Mr Hulm: I gave. two certificates —the first, written by myself, to a Mr Noot, a relative of the prisoner, in November.
