CORRESPONDENCE. 1" DANGEROUS EXPLOSIVES. SIR,-Thougli a regular purchaser of your valuable paper, my attention has only recently 'been drawn to a paragraph in your issue of June 21st headed "Portmadoc .Jottings"—" Dangerous Explosives,' and not in time to comment upon it in your last week's edition. I have no intention to question the general accuracy of the facts narrated bp « corresivmdent to pour correspondent, the object of which it is however easy to understand but I do distinctly challenge the insinuation therein conveyed that "lithofracteur," when properly handled and the charges properly adjusted to the work that has to be done, is not equally (nay, I go further, and say is not more) safe for use and free from noxious fumes than other explosives, even including that special one which the writer has gone out of his way to praise. In all probability, in the case referred to, the lithofracteur was improperly and carelessly handled by novices, the charges not properly tempered, nor the primers properly capped whilst the exhaustion and unconsciousness of the persons named may also fairly be attributed to other ,canseg so patent that they need not be mentioned in extenso. Contrast with that of your correspondent the following -statement of an experienced miner instructing the men in the use of the lithofracteur in the same heading, when more than double the number of shots were fired. May 16, 4 a.m. Fired 28 holes, every one cut to the end the miners said they had'nt seen such a thing done since they had started in the hard. Stayed at bottom of shaft, and twenty minutes after blasting ganger and men ■went to the heading. Not one felt worse for any fumes or smell." The result of this single round was a clear forward progress of 3 feet 5 inches over the whole face, which was not far from being equal to an average wrslts work in the same hard rock (chert infiltrated with spar), before the perhaps a little less powerful cotton powder was superseded and lithofracteur introduced. So much for strentjth. One word more as regards safety. Since its first introduction in 1866 lithofracteur has been very extensively used as a blasting agent on the Continent, in Australia, the United States, &c., &c., and more recently in Cumberland, Cornwall, and other parts of England. During this lengthened period there has not been up to this present time a single accident in its manufacture; nor upon enquiry can I find any one instance recorded of loss of life through its use for blasting and mining purposes. To how many of the numerous explosives now in use, even though they may be deemed in every way safer and more desiraMe will similar words apply ? I must apologise for the length of this letter, but rely upon your well-known sense of equity to warrant its insertion, and remain, A ALTERAM PARTEM. July 3rd, 1877. PROPOSED TIMBER YARD AT ABERDOVEY. SIR,-As no one more used to writing has deemed it worth while to notice the rejection of this proposal by the Local Board of Health, I beg to ask space for a few remarks, suggested by a perusal of the discussion on the subject at the Board meeting as reported in the Cambrian News. The plea for rejecting the application was that to grant it would be against the interests of Aberdovey as a watering place. Some people are evidently as misty in their notions as to what the best interests of a place are, as the present Government are as to what con- stitutes British interests" in the Eastern question. The scant patronage that often (this year so far as the season is advanced) attends seaside places of resort shows what a "broken reed" dependence on visitors is to the prosperity of a place. To throw overboard then a scheme that would undoubtedly benefit the place was something akin to the old fable of "The dog and the shadow," the moral of which is the folly of sacrificing the substance for the semblance. "Trade is the golden girdle of the world." With its splendid harbour the prosperity of Aber- dovey will be developed only by its maritime trade. Every encouragement and facility should therefore be afforded to merchants trading to the place, who may be said to contribute more to the material interests (not to mention other interests) of a place than any number of casual visitors. Anent the discussion at the Board meeting, is it not rather inconguous that the lead in opposing the application should be taken by one who is not known to have any interest in the place. By the way has that gen- tleman ever inaugurated or matured a single movement that has resulted in a desirable and permanent acquisition to the place? When Towyn close by is all alive with enterprise and public spirit, Aberdovey seems to be in a stupor as regards any progress within it, whilst any ad- vance by outsiders to benefit the place receives only scanty, if any encouragement. The inhabitants of Aber- dovey in general, and the numerous new freeholders in particular will consult their interest by seeing that every- thing affecting the welfare of the place be not decided at what a member of the Local Board called a Sly meeting," but in a manner that will be open and above- board, and at a meeting consisting of those whose interest will be identical with the interest of Aberdovey.—I am, kc.,
CRICKET. YSTRAD MEURIG GRAMMAR SCHOOL.—PAST V. PRESENT.— The annual match between these two Elevens came off at Ystrad Meurig on Monday, July 2nd, on a field kindly lent for the occaaioB by Mr. Jones, Dolfawr, and as will be seen from the subjoined score the Present students were Tictorious by an innings and 11 runs. The Present won the toss and eventually took to the willow, and before they were all disposed of, suc- ceeded in scoring 115 rnns, after a very pluckily played innings. The fielding on the part of the home team was extremely satis- factory. As usual the two teams partook of luncheon together on the field, provided by Mrs. Jones, the Red Lion, Pontrhydfen- digaid.

RE-OPENING OF THE BISHOP'S CASTLE RAILWAY. The line having been thoroughly repaired, and arrangements for its working completed, a great number of people assembled <it the Bishop Castle Station to witness the departure of the train for Craven Arms at 9 30 a.m. on Monday, July 2. Prior to the return from Craven Arms a number of busy hands, headed by Dr. Lane, of Bishop Castle, were at work, and by twelve o clock an arch of evergreens and flowers decorated with banners, was erected over the entrance of the station, and flags floated from several other places in the town. At 12 o'clock the station was thronged with people anxious to witness the arrival of the train, and as it entered into the station hearty cheers were given, and the bells rang out a merry peal in honour of the occasion. The leading tradesmen of the town closed their shops at eleven a.m., and a number of the employees availed themselves of the opportunity of having a "trip by rail." It is stated that the negotiations, which had been for a long time carried on with Mr. Marston and others, have been brought to a successful issue through the untiring exertions of Mr. Thomas Griffiths, solicitor, of Bishop's Castle, assisted by a few influential friends. Three trains a day will run for the present.
MERIONETHSHIRE ASSIZES. The Commission for the Assizes for the county of Merioneth was opened at Dolgelley on Thursday evening, July 5, bv Sir Fitzroy Kelly. His lordship was re- ceived at the station by Mr. H. J. Ellis Nanney, the High Sheriff, Mr. William Griffith, the Under Sheriff, and the usual number of javelin men, attired in uniform supplied by Mr. R. Williams, of the Post Office, the men being selected from the Sheriff's tenantry. After opening the commission the Judge attended divine service in the Parish Church, when the Rev. Canon Lewis, rector of Dolgelley and Chancellor of Bangor, preached an eloquent sermon. On the following day (Friday) the assizes com- menced at eleven o'clock. The following gentlemen were sworn on the Grand Jury:-W. W. E. Wynne, Esq., Peniarth, W. E. Oakeley, Esq., John Vaughan, Esq., H. J. Reveley, Esq., T. Humphrey Williams, Esq., W. R. M. Wynne, Esq., E. G. Jones, Esq., W. Jones, Esq., Glandwr, Charles Jones, Esq., Dr. Owen Richards, D. Davies, Esq., D. E. Kirkby, Esq., T. Lloyd Anwyl, Esq., C. E. M. Edwards, Esq., R. O. Anwyl, Esq., Colonel Romer, T. Oliver, Esq., L. H. Thomas, Esq,, F. G. -Jones, Esq., J. Williams, Esq., Gwern- hefin, J. Edmond, Esq., and Jenkin David, Esq. His lordship, addressing the Grand Jury, said—Although I am called upon to address a Grand Jury of the County of Merioneth, I believe I may say that it is the first time in my long life that I have nothing to say to you. I may congratulate you, so far as I believe, upon having nothing to do. I do very sincerely congratulate you upon the state of the county, with the immense population of all classes and all ranks which it contains, that there is not a single case on the calendar with which you will be called upon to deal in your capacity as a grand jury. Under these circumstances you will be pleased to retire, and upon your return I hope I may be able to renew the con- gratulation. The Grand Jury having had no presentment made to them, subsequently returned into court, and were dis- charged by the Judge. FFOSYCUTTIAU WHARF. A new trial having been granted in this case, it came on for hearing at these assizes. The special jury was com- posed of Messrs. David Davies, Tyn'ycoed, Edward Griffith, Springfield Cottage, DolgeUey, D. E. Hughes, Dolgelley, F. G. Jones, Ciltalgarth, J. H. Jones, Tynewydd, William Jones, Peuybont, Evan Newell, Towyn, Owen Roberts, Llawrcilan, R. B. Rowson, Bron- ygraig, L. H. Thomas, Cae'rffynnon, Thomas Ellis, Hen- bias, and Robert Williams, Ffestiniog. Mr. Ignatius Williams and Mr. Higgins (instructed by Mr. J. R. Jones) appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Morgan Lloyd, Mr. Coxon, and Mr. Swetenham (in- structed by Mr. Griffith Jones Williams) for the defence. Mr. Higgius opened the prosecution by reciting the three counts in the indictment, viz., the obstruction by Mr. William Jones, Glandwr, of the brook Dwynant, called Ffosycuttiau, as a harbour of refuge; the obstruc- tion of a navigable^river; and the obstruction of a piece of land alongside Ffosycuttiau between the brook and the highway leading from Dolgelley to Barmouth, immemo- rially,used as a public landing place or wharf. Mr. Ignatius Williams announced the withdrawal of the two first counts. Mr. W. R. Williams, C.E., Dolgelley, proved using the wharf to unload slates in June, 1873. He made the plan produced, No. 2, including a plantation and the wharf in question, represented a strip of land from the wharf to the bridge over the river. He sent a plan to Mr. W. Jones, the defendant, who replied as follows :— August 11, 1870. Dear Sir,—Re Bodowen,—As the very pretty, but very inaccu- rate map, of this small property was sent to me by you as the acting agent entrusted with the sale of it, I think it better I should address you and not Mr. Parry Jones, calling yonr at- tention to the fact (I have already done verbally) that you have among other things appropriated what is described as No. 2 to it, the whole of which is my own exclusive property, save the end next the wall of No. 3, ever used as an open place, where I have stacked and shipped my timber, and landed my coals, &c. There are other encroachments upon the public rights, apparently upon the map on the road and estuary side, which, in the interest of Mr. Owen, should be corrected. I have not been to the upper boundary so can say nothing as to its accuracy. Having been acquainted with the property as the owner of Gfendwr close upon 40 years, I ought to know some- thing about it, and having a desire to assist Mr. Owen, I offered my services as a friend to find him a purchaser, until I under- stood it was placed in your hand for a price I could not recom- mend any friend of mine to give for it. The wood ih No. 2 I planted nearly thirty years ago. What excuse, therefore, there is for now desiring to attach it to Bodowen, I am at a loss to know.-Yours faithfully, W. JONES. The end next the wall of No. 3 (Wern Bodowen) was the place in dispute. He replied to Mr. W. Jones's letter in the following manner: August 23, 1870. Dear Sir,—Re Bodowen,—I have been unable to reply to your letter of the 11th inst., at an earlier date. I have had some correspondence with Mr. Owen, and also with Mr. Parry Jones. With reference to your claim, Mr. Jones is quite agreeable to waive the point so far as regards No. 2 on the plan, as the same has been possessed by you for twenty years and upwards. With regard to public rights or our encroachments (if any) upon the same, we shall also give them up if insisted upon by the public; this, however, will be a matter for the purchaser to deal with. I will take care in the sale to inform the purchaser of such rights or claims, and the property shall be sold subject thereto. As it is a sale by private treaty, any necessary conditions may be made, and the purchaser can relinquish if he thinks proper. Thanking you for your letter, I am yours very truly, W. R. WILLIAMS. When he (witness) knew the spot about twenty-six years ago, no wall separated the wharf from the road, but he noticed near twelve months ago that a new wall had been built.—In cross-examination witness said he believed No. 2 and No. 45 to belong to Bodowen estate when he made the plan. Mr. David Pugh, solicitor, Holywell, produced the award and award map, when Mr. Morgan Lloyd called attention to the fact that No. 100 on that map represented a public landing place, awarded by the enclosure com- missioners, and that it was not the wharf in question. The former was two roods thirty-three perches, and the latter, including the plantation, twenty-five perches. W. R. Williams, continuing his evidence under cross- examination, said the wall separating the plantation from the road had a modern appearance. The slates he had re- ferred to were taken to Bodowen for Mr. Edmond.—Re- examined Mr. Edmond was then and still is owner of Bodowen. The plan accompanying the award showed the whole of No. 100, now the wharf and the plantation, to be open from the road to the water. Ellis Morris, boatman and carrier, Barmouth, the prose- cutor, said he had been going to Ffosycuttiau forty years, during which time he had been a boatman and public carrier. He had taken to the wharf wheat, flour, lime, coal, mud, paving-stones, furniture, and everything he had been asked to carry there; and although the defendant had been there on several occasions, had never objected or demanded payment. He had, however, objected to witness putting his anchor into the meadow ground on the other side of the water. He had even been in the habit of land- ing goods at the wharf for the people of Dolgelley.-Crois- examined Mr. Lloyd You are the prosecutor, are you not ?-Witness: So you inform me.—You don't bear the expense, do you ?—No I have no money to spend.—The expense is borne by Mr. Langston Jones and Mr. Saunders, two lawyers who have lately come to reside in the neigh- bourhood?—I don't know. They never acted for me as solicitors. (Laughter.) Continuing his evidence under cross-examination, witness said he had carried goods to the wharf for Mr. Anwyl, Mr. Jones, Glandwr, Robert Lewis, and Owen Owen, Barmouth, Mr. Williams, Craigronow, and others, whose names he could not remember. He carried more goods for Mr. Anwyl, who occupied the mill, than for anyone else, using the crane for other people's goods than Mr. Anwyl or Mr. Jones, the defendant's. William Jones, fisherman, Barmouth, who had known Ffosycutiau forty-two years, proved landing at the wharf in dispute during that time wheat, seaweed, and iron, the latter being for the Bontddu Factory, the^ defendant not objecting nor demanding payment. A Cardiganshire vessel traded at the wharf five or six years. Aberfach was not a good landing place, because the bottom of the river there was rocky. As there was not sufficient water in the cut for large vessels, he had seen them landing goods at the mouth.—Cross-examined—He had seen vessels at each of the three places, Aberfach, the Wharf, and at the mouth of the cut. The Cardiganshire vessel brought corn and oats to the wharf, the latter being taken to different parts of the country as seed, the corn for the most part going to the mill.—Re-examined—There was no convenient landing place at the entrance to the cut.—By the Judge-Witness had landed at Ffosycuttiau more than sixty times in one year. Robert Williams, Tyddynypandy, 72, remembered Ffosycuttiau having been used as a wharf since his boy- hood. Turf had been landed there, and timber from Mr. Gore's farms. He had used the wharf without anyone's permission.—Cross-examined—With the exception of a gap leading to the landing place, a wall extended from Wern el Bodowen to the plantation wall.—Re-examined—There was also a gap in the plantation wall, so that cattle could go down to the water. W. R. Williams, recalled, said there was a wall about five feet high separating the plantation from the road; that wall ceasing at the rock. Up to eighteen months or two years ago there was no wall separating the wharf from the road, although there might have been the re- mains of a wall on the western side of the rock. Robert Williams, Caehir, 71 years of age, said he had carried timber from Tyddynypandy to the place near the bridge, and also to the spot under Bodowen, for shipment. He had landed goods at the three places, but Ffosycuttiau was the most convenient. He used to cart goods from the wharf, and so there was a roadway. Griffith Jones, 64, had known the wharf for fifty years, and had assisted his father and brother in taking turf to that place for different people from Mr. Reveley's land. A cart could get down to the wharf. Ellis Williams, 72, timber merchant, Dolgelley, proved having had timber shipped at the wharf. The timber came from Sylvaen, Tyddynypandy, and Bodowen. He had seen corn and other things brought to the wharf. David Jones, 67, who had known the wharf for sixty years, said he had seen turf, wood, bark, flour, corn, and seaweed unloaded there. He had seen the Little Susannah, of from twenty to twenty-two tons' burden, at the wharf.—Cross-examined—The turnpike road in his grandfather's and father's time did not pass the wharf in question. Evan Richards, 82, who had known the place about sixty years, said he had carried turf to the wharf for Sylvaen Mill. John Evans, Liverpool, a former owner of Glandwr mill, and son-in-law of Mr. Anwyl, said he' lived at the mills six or seven years about nineteen years ago. During his occupation of the mill he used the wharf for business purposes. He frequently repaired the old crane, and, he believed, erected a new one, without defendant's permis- sion, and without making an acknowledgment to him. His father-in-law gave witness to understand that the use of the wharf was a privilege attached to the mill which could not be taken away, although it was not a part of the property.—Cross-examined He had heard Mr. Jones, the defendant, complaining about anchors being thrown into his meadow. B. A. Saunders, a solicitor, spending three or four months each year near Ffosycuttiau, said he and Mr. L. Jones, were the real prosecutors; Ellis Morris's name be- ing inserted because he resided in the county. When he bought his house at Cutiau in 1868, he asked the solicitor or the auctioneer whether the wharf was public. He used the wharf, up till about three years ago, when the dis- pute arose. The defendant then intimated that the wharf was his own property. In previous conversations defend- ant said it "might not belong to the public. He was not quite sure that it belonged to the public." Charles Jones, J.P., Coesfaen, said since he had been living near Barmouth he had been to the wharf in ques- tion. Hejharl not been hindered in landing. He had seen boats loading and unloading at the wharf—many boats before the formation of the railway, but not so many since. Hugh Roberts, vicar of Aberdaron, and formerly owner of the Glandwr estate, including the mill, said he had known the place sixty years. He was twenty-two when he sold the property. When the wharf was in his pos- session it was used by people for landing goods, and used for that purpose from the time he knew it until he sold it. There was no payment made or permission asked or given, nor did he ever hear anyone ask his father's permission. His father was a person who thoroughly looked after his rights. He exacted a fee from fishermen for the use of Ceinewydd. He had had a conversation with Hugh Roberts, a distant relative, now deceased, and he had re- marked that the wharf was a public wharf. Miss Elizabeth Roberts, sister of the last witness, said she had lived at Borthwen all her life, and had known the wharf as long as she could remember. She had seen people land at the wharf both before and after her brother sold Glandwr. No one could scarcely pass without seeing a boat with a cargo at the wharf. It was a public wharf. —Cross-examined: People used to land goods and take them across Bodowen meadow and also at the public landing place. David Davies, servant of the defendant, was called to prove placing the obstruction on the wharf, and William Williams, carpenter and builder, Barmouth, that he erected the crane on the wharf in 1852, for Mr. Anwyl, who paid for it. There was a crane on the wharf previously. This concluded the evidence for the prosecution. The Court rose batween half past five and six o'clock. On Saturday morning the Court sat at ten o'clock, when Mr. Morgan Lloyd opened the case for the defence, in an address lasting about two hours. Hugh Roberts, 52, said he went at nine years of age into defendant's service. He remembered Mr. Anwyl putting up the crane on the wharf; it might be sixteen years ago. He also remembered deepening the channel so that Ellis Morris's boat could get up at other times than at spring tides. Ellis Morris used to bring wheat to the crane. The quay wall was built by a mason about the same time as the crane was erected. He remembered John Jones working at a rock for Mr. Hugh Jones, and that he desisted at the com- mand of the defendant. William Davies, 60, who had lived near Ffosycuttiau, and who knew the place about 37 years, said there was a wall running from the bridge to AVern Bodowen. There was a small gap near the rock as if the wall had fallen down at that place. He should not like to take a horse down over the rock leading from the gap. He remembered the opening of another gap near No. 3, about the time when Mr. Anwyl commenced business at the mill. The men were employed by Mr. Anwyl. Before the wharf was made the land leading to the water was very steep and it would have been difficult to take a horse and cart down to the water. When the crane was being erected Mr. Anwyl remarked to witness, "How kind of Mr. Jones to put it up and enable us to take the things up without carrying them on our backs." Witness had seen Ellis Morris unloading coal, culm, and also stones for the road, but he had never^een things brought for any one else ex- cept for the owner of the mill, Mr. \V. Jones. The stones were used on the road. Thomas Roberts, C.E., Portmadoe, said he made the plan produced. The road near the wharf was made by a cutting through a rock, the depth on the upper side being from four to six feet and on the lower three feet. The promontory formerly extended to a point marked A. There were marks on Mr. Jones's land showing that the river in 1837 ran down to point D.—Cross-examined The rock did not shut up the entrance to the wharf by the in- habitants of Cuttiau. The rock dividing the wharf from the plantation ran from nothing to six or seven feet. The rock sloped down to the river, but it did not form a sub. stantial barrier. Lewis Jones, 80, remembered Ffosycuttiau fifty-five years. He said he carted the machinery for Mr. Edward Roberts, the occupier of the mill preceding Mr. Anwyl, between fifty-five and fifty-seven years ago. He brought the machinery from the quay at Barmouth. He passed Ffesycuttiau each time. 1 he cut, or water way, was much narrower than at the present time. A rock sloped down to the water side from the road. If there was a wall separating the rock from the road it must have been a very small one. There were some stones placed there to support the road. There was no landing place at the place then. When a boatman on the river fifteen years ago for two years he did not use the wharf in question. Cross-examined—He had not only taken the machinery along the road but had carted timber.—Re-examined: He carried the timber to the Cutiau Marsh under Bodowen, for shipment. He had not seen Ffosycuttiau used. William Jones 85, the defendant, said he was senior member of the Corporation of London. He commenced business in 1821, and went on to 1860. He acquired Glan- dwr in 1837, furnishing it in 1839. In. that year he let the house to his friend Sergeant Talford. From 1839 to 1866 he ran down occasionally to Glandwr, and he had been more there since his retirement from business than before. When the bridge fell down in 1841 there was a wall from the bridge to Wern Bodowen, or No. 3. There was a small gap at the rock sufficient to admit an animal to go to the water, about a yard wide. It was certainly not wide enough for a horse and cart to pass through. When the bridge was rebuilt they took land from him in order to widen the road from the plantation, he giving them permis- sion todo anything to repair the bridge. The workmen raised stones at the place in dispute. He knew^ it because the place had evidently been blasted. Mr. Anwyl purchased the mill in 1833. Witness most decidedly remembered Mr. Anv^yl's asking him permission to make a landing place atJFfosycuttiau, and it was granted. The place was made into a wharf by making a quay wall and filling it up behind. Defendant's servant assisted in the work. A second gap near Bodowen was then made, the first gap having been previously widened. The permission was granted in 1853. Mr. Anwyl was defendant's tenant of some land when he occupied the mill, and so was Mr. Anwyl's successors. He had given leave to the Bodowen people, Miss Tod, and Mr. Edmond, defendant's neigh- ours, to land gravel at the wharf. He did not know that anyone used the wharf without his permission. He gave Mr. Gore's people permission to bring timber from Tyddynpandy, down to the road, the timber being shipped at the natural landing place awarded by the commission- ers. He had never given permission to the public to use the wharf. Mr. Gatty Jones owned the Bontddu Foun- dry.-Cross-examined He did not know there was a wall separating the road from the wharf when he purchased the Glandwr property. He did not enter into the details of the property. His attention was first drawn to the wall when the bridge was repaired. Ellis Morris could not anchor at the wharf as the anchor would not stick there. When he found Morris at the wharf he gave him a good blowing up, and said he (defendant) would have to with- draw the privilege he had accorded to Mr. Anwyl. He did not enquire of Morris the contents of his cargo, but he always believed that he carried for Mr. Anwyl. When Morris put his nets on defendant's land he (defendant) said I cannot permit you to come on my land without asking my leave." He never knew that the wharf had been used as a public landing place. He had never seen William Jones there. He had never said to Mr. Saunders, I am not so sure it is a public landing place." Mr. Saunders remarked to defendant that, when at the auction, the auc- tioneer said the wharf was included. Defendant replied that Mr. Saunders, as a professional man, should not take all that auctioneers told him. He added that the wharf was his property. The word "exclusive" in the letter was meant by defendant to be "enclosed." He had, in making the plantation, reserved the wharf for his own convenience. "Ever used" meant as long as he had owned the property. "Other public rights" meant to distinguish it from his private rights. "Save" meant to distinguish it from enclosed. He had not his title deeds present in the court, as the property was in settlement on his son. He had not the conveyance in the court. The Judge-It is called for, and you do not produce it ? —Mr. Morgan Lloyd—I do not my Lord. John Charles Hughes proved service of the notice to produce on Mr. Griffith Jones Williams, defendant's solicitor. William Jones, re-examined, said when he saw the wall at the time of the repairing of the bridge, the end appeared to have been pulled down. He meant by "other public rights" in his letter an encroachment on the award wharf. He remembered Hugh Jones attempting to stack coals on the wharf, and he (defendant) interfered with the men at the work. He said What are you doing there ?" One of the men answered I was put here by Mr. Hugh Jones to cut the rock." The men stopped the work on account of what defendant had said. Miss Sarah Griffiths, defendant's niece, said she had resided at Glandwr ever since 1840, and had known Ffosycuttiau since that date. Glandwr, along the road, was about half a mile from the wharf. She could not have seen the wharf from the house. She had not seen anyone using the wharf excepting Mr. Anwyl and Mr. W. Jones, her uncle. She remembered the whart in 1842. There was a rock sloping down into the river. At the top there was a gap and a wall to ern Bodowen. The gap was about a yard in width. Un one side of the gap was a rock, and on the other side like other walls in the country. The place remained in the same state until about 25 years ago, when a crane was erected on the wharf, and a gap was made on the VV ern Bodowen side wide enough for a cart to go through. The old gap was also widened. The crane was removed about two years ago by Mr. W. Jones, who took it to Glandwr. -Cross-examined: Mr. Jones removed the crane at Mr. Anwyl's request. She thought it was a mistake when William Davies said he had seen a cart go down to the water through the gap before the crane was made. Robert Roberts, 64, in defendant s service for 36 years, said he remembered the Glandwr bridge all that time. There was a wall running from the bridge to Wern Bodowen, with a gap large enough to admit the passage of a man or an animal. A second gap was made after the erection of the crane. He had seen goods brought to the wharf for Mr. Anwyl and Mr. Jones, the defendant, but for no one else.—Cross-examined: Ellis Morris usually brought the things to the wharf, but he (witness) did not ask Morris who the goods were for. William Jones, the defendant, recalled and questioned by the Judge, said he planted the trees at what was now the plantation soon after he purchased the property. Richard Jones, road surveyor for 28 years, said he was the contractor for the reconstruction of the bridge in 1841. He got some of the stones from the landing place by Mr. Jones's permission. The county paid Mr. Jones. The road was widened. Before that took place a wall ran from the bridge to Wern Bodowen with one opening within 100 yards approach to the bridge and 15 yards of Werft Bodowen. The opening was not big enough for a cart to go through, and the rock sloped towards the river.—Cross- examined Previously to the last trial he did not offer to give evidence for the prosecution. Sarah Jones, Garthissa, in service with Mr. Jones 101 years ago, commencing 32 years ago, said the water had worn a great deal of the marsh away. She also gave evidence respecting the wall and the gap in it. This was the case for the defence. Mr. Morgan Lloyd and Mr. Ignatius Williams having addressed the jury, His Lordship summed up at considerable length, and the jury, after retiring from court for a brief period, brought in a verdict against the defendant, Mr. William Jones. The Court rose about halfpast four o clock.

CARNARVONSHIRE ASSIZES. These assizes commenced at Carnarvon on Tuesday July 10, before the Lord Chief Baron. The following composed the grand jury Messrs. L. Jones-Parry (foreman), H. J. Ellis Nanney, F. W. Lloyd Edwards, Captain Wynn Griffith, Colonel Williams Messrs. 0. Evans, G. H. Owen, B. T. Ellis, A. Jones- Williams, J. D. Whitehead, E. W. Mathew, J. W. Greaves, J. P. De Winton, G. Walker, E. Moore Seymour Greaves, G. R. Rees, and Hugh Pugh. His Lordship in charging the grand jury, said that happily he had very little to say, except to congratulate them -as he did most sincerely-upon the state of the calendar, and that in that county, with its thousands of inhabitants, there was but one offence and one alleged offender to come before them. In the case of William Evans (on bail), charged with committing perjury during the hearing of an affiliation case at Conway, m which he was defendant, Mr. M. Lloyd, Q.C., who was instructed for the defence, applied for an adjournment to the next assizes, owing to the absence, through illness, of a material witness.—His Lordship said there would be no objection, provided an affidavit was put in.—The defendant was, however, unable to find bail. I WATKINS V. PRYCE. This was a common jury case for the recovery of £35 16s. 7d., balance of account in connection with the sale of the Brooklyn Vaults, Llandudno. Mr. M. Lloyd, Q. C, and Mr. Higgins (instructed by Messrs. Brook and Chap- man, London) appeared for the plaintiff, Mr. T. Powell Watkins, a solicitor living at Worcester; and Mr. Swettenham (instructed by Mr. Chamberlain) for the defendant, Mr. W. Price, wine and spirit merchant. The items in dispute were 150 dozen of bottled ale, which, it was alleged, had been sold as Bass, and Allsopp, and Salt, but proved to be Younger's, and eight barrels of beer which were undrinkable, and charged in excess of the trade prices. The case occupied the whole day. Mr. Powell Jones, a Rhyl wine merchant, Mr. Chan trey, proprietor of the Imperial Hotel, Llandudno, Mr. Crockett, Tudno Castle Hotel, Llandudno, were examined as to the quality of the impugned liquor, and several sample bottles were tapped in court for the opinion of the jury.—After being locked up for nearly three hours, the jury at eight o'clock were taken to the judge's lodgings, and there gave the verdict, which was for the plaintiff for 210, the value of the beer in barrels. They recommended- that costs should not follow the decision, and that, as there had been some deception in the case of the bottled beer through the use of labels belonging to other brewers, the bottled beer should be returned. WEDNESDAY. ALLEGED PERJURY AT CONWAY.—In the case of Wm- Evans, blacksmith (on bail), charged with committing perjury during the hearing of an affiliation case in which he was defendant, it was stated that the necessary bail had been put in. Upon the application of Mr. M. Lloydr Q.C., who was for the defence, the trial, in the absence of a material witness, was adjourned to the next assizes. Mr. I. Williams was for the defence. This was the only case in the calendar. WATKINS v. PRICE.—This was a special jury cause, in which damages were claimed for the illegal detention of goods. Mr. M. Lloyd, Q.C., and Mr. Higgins (instructed by Messrs. Brooks and Chapman, London), were for the plaintiff; and Mr. Swetenham (instructed by Mr. Cham- berlain) for the defendant. The action was a sequel tor the cause which occupied the court the whole of the pre- vious day, and in which the same parties were plaintiff and defendant. The plaintiff, Mr. T. P. Watkins, is » solicitor living at Worcester, and in May he sold the leasehold premises known as the Brookland Vaults, Llan- dudno, to the defendant, Mr. W. Price, who was a wine and spirit merchant at Rhyl. Part of the plaintiff's stock was taken at a valuation, and before there was time to remove the remainder, Mr. Price, finding that he had been deceived as regarded a quantity of beer, which formed the subject of the present action, turned the plaintiff's men out of the premises, after giving the plain- tiff notice to have everything cleared within twelve hours. This they were unable to do, and in a cellar under the adjoining house, entrance to which could be obtained only through the defendant's premises, there was locked up wines and spirits valued at 2785, defendant refusing to permit their removal unless he was paid klOO for the trespass. This formed the chief item in the claim, the other sums claimed being 268 5s. lOd. due to Mr. Felton, who had been engaged to sell the wines and spirits £ 21 6s. 4d. office furniture detained, £2.5 17s. 6d. men's wages, and JE25 14s. charged as the cost of apaitments plaintiff had been compelled to engage in Llandudno. The case occupied nearly the whole day. The jury found for the plaintiff-damages 2842 7s. lOd.
MR. WHALLEY AND THE SPEAKER. In the House of Commons, on Thursday, July 5th, after the Chancellor of the Exchequer had replied to Mr. Puleston's question on the subject of the obstructive policy of certain members of the House, Mr. WHALLEY rose, and, amid cries of Speak up pro- ceeded to make some observations in the nature, as he said of a personal explanation upon the statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. (Cries of order, order.") The statement was so measured in its terms and so carefully weighed—(Order order)- # The SPEAKER reminded the hon. member that in personal ex- planation he would doubtless receive the indulgence of the House; but remarks in answer to the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer were not in the nature of a personal explanation. Mr. HALLEY said he understood that the Chancellor of the Exchequer was imputing to all who took part in the proceedings the other night--(order, order)—he must endeavour by some meai-s to protect himself. After a quarter of a century in that House, he could not sit under the imputation conveyed by the right hon. gentleman without claiming the right to offer some reply. (No, no.) If the House would proceed with the motion of the hon. member for Devonport, he would take the oppor- tunity to state circumstances. (Order, order)-- The SPEAKER—I have already informed the hon. member that he is entitled to make a personal explanation, but he is not en- titled to go beyond that. Mr. WHALLEY-As the observations of the Chancellor of the Exchequer were wholly--(Order, order). The SPEAKER—If the hon. member ignores entirely the in- structions that fall from the chair, I shall be obliged to submit his conduct to the House. Mr. WHALLEY—I must make one more attempt. I cannot continue my duties in this House after the imputation that has been thrown upon me. (Order, order). The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, rising to order, said the indulgence of the House was never refused for a personal explanation, but the hon. member was exceeding that limit, and it was scarcely respectful to the Speaker that he should proceed in that strain. (Hear, hear.) Mr. WHALLEY moved the adjournment of the House, and pro- ceeded to say that the Chancellor of the Exchequer, bv the course he had seen fit to adopt, had rendered himself liable to complaint on the part of members of that House. (Renewed cries of Order.") n, u Sir J. HOGG member was not acting directly contrary to the sense of the remarks made by the Speaker. (Hear, hear.) The SPEAKEi. I consider the hon. member is altogether dis- regarding thy njunctions that have fallen from the chair; and unless the 1 should act otherwise, as the hon. j C(jnduct interrupts the business of the House, I con. ler I shall, with the consent of theHouse.be justinea in cauing upon any member who desires to put a question in tne ordinary course of business, to rise in his moment ^en called on Mr. Jenkins, who rose at the

SUICIDE OF THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF SALOP COUNTY PRISON. un Saturday afternoon, July 7, an inquest was held in the V^ounty Uaol at Shrewsbury, on the body of the Deputy governor, Mr. Joseph Aubrey,who committed suicide under very dlstressin" circumstances on the evening of the day previous. The deceased was last seen alive between one and two on Friday, when he seemed in a. depressed state, but was quite able to attend to his duties. He was missed shortly after three, and a search, which lasted a considerable time, was instituted. He was at last found hanging by a rope, quite dead, in one of the divisions in which the men are placed when working at the tread-wheel. The rope was attached to a cross-beaiw which sup- ports the partition, and the deceased appeared to have jumped from the seats on which the prisoners rest themselves. He was at once cut down, and medical aid procured, but life appeared to have been extinct for some time.—The gaol surgeon (Mr. J. D. Harris) said he had been attending the deceased for some months. He was suffering from liver complainant, and had occasional fits of despondency, but was not in such a state as to lead anyone to suppose that he would take away his life.—A verdict of Committed suicide while in a state of temporary insanity" was returned.—Deceased leaves a widow and five children.
