PUBLIC-HOUSES AND THE SABBATH. [TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERLIN AND SILURIAN.] SIR,-In your paper I read a letter of S. D. on public-houses in this locality. I was struck by one of his remarks on the duty of magistrates to suppress licenses in cases of misdemeanour, &e. -Permit me to trouble you with a question or two on public-houses, and the practices of some of them in this neighbourhood. Does the law allow playing pitch-and-toss on the public thoroughfare, and particularly in front of public-houses, a practice that is quite common in this place lately ? Again, does the law allow pitch-and-toss, bowling, &c., on the premises on Sunday, while the landlord often looks on, enjoying the sport ? If such practices are illegal, whose duty is it to put them down ? They are quite new in this locality, and have been carried on often even at the time people go and come from church and chapels. And is it sufferable for a bowling alley to be made so near a place of worship as frequently to disturb e congregation at their devotions ? Your answer to e °regoing questions will oblige many besides Blaenavon. Yours r«spoctfuliy, RRRU A CONSTANT READER. [ e po ice authorities would, doubtless, remove the nuisance of which our correspondent complains, if the subject were brought before them.]
