«.— To the Editor of the Monmouthshire Merlin. SIR,—I find in your report of the Usk Sessions, the case of a lad who was indicted for feloniously sucking cider from a cask with a quill. The grand juiy were so thoroughly disgusted with the case, that they wished the chairman to disallow the costs. The chairman agreed with the grand jury—said there was not a shadow of a case, and that certainly the costs would not be allowed. Can your reporter inform me whether the full costs were not afterwards allowed. as I am interested in the behalf of a poor fellow at Pillgwenlly, whose expenses were disallowed, ahhough a true bill was found by the grand jury, merely because the prisoner told the chairman a lie-namely, that he had drank nine pints of beer in his house, which lie was believed by the court. Yours obediently. ENQUIRER. [ iVe understand that the expenses were allowed on the appli- cation of the prosecutor to the chairman.]
