James James, a waggoner, in the servico of Mr. John Sharp of Thornwell Farm, near Chepstow, was summoned by the Surveyor of the Cbepstow District of Turnpike Roads for negligently leaving large stones in the centre of the road at St. Pierre-hiii. after having used them in blocking his wheels, thereby endangering the lives of such of her Majesty's liege subjects as may have then had occasion to pass down the hill in coach, carriage, or other vehicle. The case was fully proved by one of the men at work on the road at the time • and as this offence has become prevalent of late, the Bench determined to find the culprit in the penalty of five shillings and costs, which was forthwith paid. Edward Stidder, a servant of Mr. Birt, of Moyne's Court Farm, was also convicted of a similar offence, and fined a like sum. Robert Wolford, the proprietor of a travelling theatre, ap- peared to answer a summons which had been issued against him, on the information of the police, for keeping open a place for the performance of stage plays without being duly licensed.
