ITHE UNIVEr j-Y BOAT lACE. OXFORO. The beautiful weather which prevailed on Tues- day mating training exercise, both on land and water,- thoroughly enjoyable, was taken advantage of to the full by the Oxonians. A bracing walk preceded breakfast, and after that meal they set out again on foot, and, journeying to Marlow, treated themselves to a sight of their rivals at work afloat. Subsequently they returned to Bourne Eud, and by a quarter to one o'clock had embarked from a raft near Abney Housa in their last year's racing boat. Proceeding quietly through Bourne End Bridge, Higgins than settled into a sweep of 33 to the minute, at which they kept on steadily to Spade OAk Ferry, where they took an easy for a few minutes, and then travelled on to Stonehouse. There they turned, and soon after started back again, still rowing 32 strokes per minute till they arrived at Horsham Factory, from which they paddled home. It was 3.4:5 before they were again afloat, and thii tiraa the new eight, built by Mr John Clasper, w:<3 got ready and manned as follows: st. lb. G. C. Bourne, New (bow) 11 01 2. R. S.

Higgins, Magdalen (stroke) 9 6t E. H. Lyon, Hertford (cox.) 7 13!¡ During the morning T. C. Edwards-Moss, an eld blue, had arrived, and be superintended the coaching, which was from the bows of the steam launch WildAre. After paddling through tho Bourne End Bridge, they bottled down to 32 strokes Ser minute, and did not eaae until a long way above pade Oak Ferry, when they rowed right away to Marlow Point. After a few minutes' rest the boat was turned and preparations were made for a row over the entire course. Higgins commenced at 32 strokeii per minute, aud along Quarry Wood they travelled at a good pace and very even, and right down Spade Oak Reach very little fault was found by their coach. Bourne End Bridge was again got thiough cleverly without easing, and at this point Higgings increased the rate of rowing to 3t strokes per minute, the crew still rowing very evenly and fast at Morley's Paper Mills. They were rather unsteady, but soon got right again, and did not Oise till after pas iag 0 okham Bridge. They then were allowed a little time, and the return to Ab- aey House was done at 32 per minute, with one ahorfc eaey at Morley'a Paper Mills, the after- noon's work being fiuished at a quarter to five o'clock. CAMBRIDGE. Tha work of the Light Blue eight on the water on Tuesday was less in quality than they have re- cently been accustomed to, but what was done showed decided improvement in style: and execu- tion, even as compared with Monday's rowing They made their first appearance afloat about half-past eleven, the order and weights, in which.there were no change from Monday, being as foll-,ws:- st. lb.

They came abreast the Abbey before making the turn, and the return voyage was done by easy stages, the crew having been afloat three-quarters of an hour. The new Swaddle was again placed in the water at 3.35, and, when he was heading up stream again, 3 [Smith cut out the work at 32 per minute for half a mile. "Easy all" was then called, and then breaking into a paddle they moved thu3 until about a hundred and fifty yards from Biaham Grange. Putting about here they came away at a more vigorous stroke, and no cessation in their labours occurred till they reached their landing-place at Shaw's yard. Moat of the men were out in the tub pairs later in the afternoon, and also took land exercise. DENBIGH.

Parry Jones, the town clerk. we herewith append a draft of the memorial sent to the Educational Committee setting out the claims of Denbigh to the above collego: -I' To the Right Hon. the President and other Members of the Committee other Majesty's Privy Council on Education. We, the mayor, aldermen, and councillors of the borough of Denbigh,in the county of Denbigh, beg to approach your Committec, en the subject of your Report on Intermediate and Higher Education, and the establishment of a college in North Wales, and the most appro- priate town for the erection of it. We represent the borough of Denbigh, and the county town, which is generally admitted to be the metropolis of North Wales, and sitaated as nearly as possible in the centre of the mixed population of that thriving and improving district of her Majesty's dominions. The town stands in the centre of the Vale of Clwyd, and in point and situation, salubrity, railway and road accomm)dation and facilities is unrivalled in North Wales. Its markets and fairs attest the great extent of its agricultural produce and property. It has direct railway accommodation east,?to and from Chester (30 miles off), and thence to Liverpool, by twelve daily trains, six eaoh way, while it is in direct union north with Anglesey and Carnarvon bv the Chester and Holyhead Railway, while south it has railway accommodation and connection with Merionethshire and Montgomeryshire, and with Shropshire. There are several admirable sites that are available for the erection of the college, and in the immediate neighbourhood age quarries of limestone for building "that cannot be excelled. We beg to add that its central oitaation for North Wales is attested by the town kaving been selected as the site for the Lunatic Anylam for North Wales, where it has been erected, and has proved the great advantage and 'I convenience of its situation. We beg also to add that it has been selected by the Court of Chaucery as the place for the erection of the Howell's Schools for North Wales, erected and sustained under the trust held by the Drapers Company of London for the maintenance of orphan and other girls-a most valuable institution which is a great blessing to North Wales. The town is sur* rounded by families of distinction and wealth, who would take a deep interest in the subject of education as projected by the establishment of this college. W do not wish to disparage the claims of othev towns, which we believe have been presented to your Committee, but we again assert that none of them can pretend to t* e central position that Denbigh presents, and by its great accessibility, its healthy, beautiful, and attractive situation, and being surrounded by a district that is the most likely to avail itself of the great objects of this college. We therefore earnestly hope that the claims of this town may be tested by a comparison with others that have been,made,and we feel assured that the superiority of it will then be admitted.—Signed on behalf of the town council, J. HARRISON JONES, mayor, Denbigh, March 6th, 1882.H ACCIDENT WITH THE HARRIERS.—We are sorry to report that a grievous accident took place W ih the Vale of Clwyd Harriers last Saturday. It appears that Master Lloyd Williams, the third son of our respected townsman Capt. Lloyd Williams, rode a spirited and valuable grey mare-which, while in the act of leaping over a style near Cefn- maen, was wounded in her side by a long thorn, causing her blood to low freely. The mare, how- ever, raa over two or three other fields before the wound was discovered, and then it was found necessary to shoot her on the spot. DRUNK. AND RIOTOUs.-For being drunk and riotous on Tuesday last, in High-street and Yale- street, James Dunn, hawker, Heallan-strect, was fiied 2s 6d and costs, this being his first offence. THE MARCH FAIR.—This fair, which is con. sidered the moat popular one of the year, was teld on Tuesday and Wednesday last, an exceedingly large number of people being present.
DENBIGHSHIRE AND FLINTSHIRE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the general committee of the above society was held last Wednesday morning, at the Bull Hotel, for the purpose of electing the president for the year and transact other important business in connection with the society. The atten- dance was good, and included Mr J. Scott-Bankes (in the chair), Mr George Bellis (secretary), Mr Oorbett, Mold; Messrs Griffith Jones, W. B-Tl, Rhuddlan; W. Edwards, Ruthin; W. Kellett, Thomas Smith, Ruthin Major Hughes, Ystrad John Roberts, Nantglyn; H. Lowell Jones, Ruthin; W. Roberts, Bathafarn; R. C. B. Clough, Ty Mawr; Owen J. *Williams, Cefn; Major Birch, Maes Elwy; H. Davies, Gresford; T. W. Bowdage, Cotton Hall; W. Jones, coal merchant, Denbigh; T.: Roberts, Well House farm, Saltney Mr Thomas Smith, Plas-yn-llan, Ruthin, and others. NEW PRESIDENT. Mr Scott-Bankes, in a very complimentary speech, proposed Major Hughes, Ystrad, as the president for the year. Mr P. P. Pennant seconded. Major Hughes, in taking the chair, thanked them for the honour done to him, and said that he thought there were many others present more compatent to fill the chair than himself. How- ever, he would accede to their wish, and would do all in his power to further the interest of the society. The previous shows held at Denbigh had been a decided success-the local committee worked well together, and a creditable balance was handed over to. the funds of the society. He hoped th it such wout .d be the case this year; and though it had been suggested by many that it fell heavily on Denbigh to have the show in the town the same year as the great eis- teddfod, yet he hoped that the benefit that would accrue to the town would far outweight the sub- scriptions given towards he society. NEXT YEAR'S SHOW. Mr Pennant proposed, Mr Clough seconded, and it was unanimously passed, that in Rule No. 9, after the words "failing which," the following words be inserted, viz., Unless the committee are able to select some town by a unanimous vute." Mr Pennant also proposed that the show for 1883 be held at Rhyl or Mold. Both towns were excellent places for gate money, as the shows there were always well attended. In answer to Mr Bell, the secretary said that the show in Mold was held the year before last, whiLe the show at Rhyl was held in 1878. Mr Bell therefore proposed that nextyear's show be held at Rhyl. Th:s was seconded by Mr Corbett, Mold, and agreed to. AMENDING EXISTING RULES. Mr John Roberts, Well House f arm, Saltney, proposed that Rule No. 14 be rescinded, and the following be substituted for it, viz., "That all members of the society shall compete on equal terw-s." This was seconded by Mr Scott Bankes and agreed to. Mr Roberts, Saltney, again proposed that in cass of an exhibitor being awarded the first and second prize in any class, he shall only be allowed to claim the first. The exhibitor next in the order of merit receiving the second. Mr Bowdage, Cotton Hall, objected t) this, and proposed a negative amendment, which was car- ried. Mr Thomas Smith, Plas-yn-llan, Ruthin, moved that in future, premium No. 23 shall read as fol- lows, viz For the best hunter (mare or gelding) to carry not less than 12 stone, which shall be considered the best performer over hurdles, rails, or water. Open to all comers." Mr John Roberts, Geinas, proposed that the word, Previous winners to carry fourteen pounds extra," should be attached as a rider to Mr Smith's motion. This was agreed to. A NEW PRIZE. Upon the motion of Mr John V. William, Der- wen Hall, Ruthin, it was decided that a first prize °* ai*d a second of £ 1 be given for the best pen of three shearling ewes of auy distinct mountain WVsh eiClttdi»e cheviots, and not restricted to A HANDSOME OFFER. Mr Alexander Balfour, Mount Alyn, Rossett, secretary stating that he being anxious to encourage tenant farmers to produce milk, ™Cfrf^e,^n<legg3' in larSer quantities than ?kt of, offered the following prizes for three ye rs, viz., For the best arranged and most successfuUy managed dairy farm, not less than 50 and not more than 150 acres in extent. First prize, £10. second prize, Z5. Upon the °* Mr Pennant it was decided that the best thanks of the meeting be forwarded to Mr Balfour for his kind offer, which would be accepted. JUDGES.

SPECIAL POLICE COURT, MONDAY.—Before the mayor (Mr J. H. Jones), ex-mayor (MrE. T. Jones), Dr Tumour, and Mr W. Morris. Indecent Assault.—Robert Lewis, shoemaker, Chapel-street, who was apprehended uuder a war- rant by Sergeant Jones, was charged with having committed an indecent assault upon a ycung girl named Margaret Burke, the daughter of a woman of the same name, who is cohabiting with John Jones, sweep, Henllan-street. The girl stated that she was 10 yesrs of age. On the 27th of Feb- ruary last she was proceeding up Vale-street with a pair of clogs under her arm, and when passing the defendant house, he dragged in by force, and asked her if he should repair the clogs. Witness having answered in the negative, the defeduanfc pushed her behind the door, kissed her, and behaved in an indecent manner. In defence Lewis contended that he only kissed the girl, as he was very fond of children. He denied in toto hav- ing behaved indecently towards her. The bench after a short consultation, decided to withdraw the charge of indecency, and fined the prisoner El and costs for common assault. The defendant's application to have time to pay the money was granted.
EHYL. ST. THOMAS'S COLLEGE.—Mr J. Whiteside has succeeded to a scholarship of the value of £ 10 a year-one of three scholarships, available for students of this college who pass the Oxford and Cambridge Local Examinations, and tenable for two years—consequent upon his having passed the Cambridge Local Examination recently held at Denbigh.
BANGOR. Captain William Roberts, Garth Hill-terrace, Bangor, master of the schooner Mary Edwards, was Wednesday found dead in bed at Shoreham. ENGLISH WESLEYAN CHAPEL.-On Monday ever. ing last, the 13th instant, a service of sacred song was given at the above chapel. The choir was conducted by Mr Bryan, and the readings were rendered by the Rev Campbell. The Rev H. Babb presided. All friends present enjoyed the musical treat, which certainly was worthy of great praise. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.—On Tuesday, a labourer, named John Owen, from the neighbourhood of Amlwch, was brought before the Bangor magis- trates on a charge of drunkenness Inspector Hughes, who prosecuted, said that on Saturday night the defendant was rescued frcm the sea below Garth Landing-stage, where he had jumped, having diverted himself of nearly all his clothing, which was carried away by the tide. He was in an intoxicated condition, and unable to give an account of himself. The bench fined him 5s and costs. A MIDNIGHT MARAUDER.—The burglar scare has spread to Carnarvon and Bangor, and a well- knewn scientist living in Upper Bangor was a night or two back the latest victim. He is addict- ed to burning the midnight oil, and just before retiring to rest, stealthy steps crunching the gravel walk of his residence attracted his notice. Creep- ing quietly downstairs, he observed a man trying one of the windows. Surmising that his midnight visitor was a burglar, and there being no firearms within available reach, he availed himself of the case of his meerchaum pipe, armed with which he boldly sallied forth to challenge the intruder into his grounds. The man bolted towards the back premises, but failing to scale an eight-font wall, made tracks for the ma n road. The peturbed householder managed t) seize him, and pointed at him the pipe case,warned him that his life was in his hands,and raised a cry of police. There was a brief struggle,: but the intruder contrived to slip the hold of his captor, and rushing through a hedge fell with considerable foroe into the road below. There being no sign of any policeman and the intruder being, it was obvious, very frighten- ed and hurt by his sudden descent into the road, was allowed to wend his way off without further interference.

LOCAL BOARD O? HEALTH. The fortnightly meeting of this board was held yesterday (Thursday), when there were present-Messrs Thomas Lewis (in the chair), John Roberts, Morgan Richards, Robert ilughog, Robert Roberts, and Mr Gill, clerk. THE HBNDRB WEN FOOTPATH. The board having decided at the previous meet- ing to obtain a solicitor's; opinion on the question of the right of the Penrhyn estate authorities to close the above path, the clerk submitted the selected solicitor's opinion, which was expressed in the followiaglletter:—" Bangor, 16th March— Stu,-Assuming that the path has been openly and publicly used as Q) right from 40 to 60 years, I think it clear tint there exists a right of way against the landlord, c;pn although it be proved by him that the land over which the path goes was during that time in the occupation of a tenant. By the term "as of right" is meant that the persons using the path did so iu the belief that they were rightfully entitled, and not because they had the permission of the occupier.—Yours faithfully, JOHN ROBERTS. Mr Robert Roberts: That is very vague, is it not ? On the motion of Mr Morgan Richards, it was agreed, Ur E. H Kiiis btsiag the mover in the matter, to defer the discussion on the question. THE GORAD-Y-GYT FORESHORE. The clerk read a letter from Mr James, solicitor of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, in -which he wished to know the decision which the board had come to as to the Gorad-y-gyt foreshore,and ask- ing for areply to his previous letter. Mr Robert Hughes praposed that they should I drop the subject. The chairman said it was thought at first that the Commissioners would sell their. nterest at a moderate price, the same as the Board of Trade had done. Mr John Roberts thought they had better make a case to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners again. The Chairman thought the best thing would be to take an action with a view of taking possession of the foreshore. Mr John Roberts thought that the money asked for the foreshore was as much as would be the cost of cultivated land almost. The Chairman thought the best thing for them to do, would be to write to Mr James, stating that the boaid, not acknowledging the right of inter- ference on the part of the Commissioners, thought no definite r^ply was required. This was unanimously agreed to. THE PROPOSED COLLEGE. The Chairman stated that the committee ap- pointed to carry out the intentions of the board as to memorializing the Education Committee in support of obtaining the new college for Bangor had met several times; and that some two or three hundred circulars had been distributed. He thought they ought to do all in their power to rneko the public meeting to be held to-night (Friday) as popular as possible. Letters supportcg the move- ment had been received from several influential gentlemen among them the dean and the bishop. Captain Verney had written stating that he was afraid he would not be at home on the day on which the meeting would be held. On the motion of the chairman it was decided to depute Captain Verney on the matter, asking him to attend the meeting in order to second a certain resolution, it being expressed that if he consented, a "good speech would be secured." A letter was read from Mr R. Davies, M.P., ex- pressing his inability to attend the meeting; otherwise he would be glad to move the resolution sent him. He thought, however, that the question of site should not at present be mentioned." They ought to try to obtain the college for Carnarvon- shire and having secured it for the county they could afterwards discuss the best site for it. Mr Rathbone, M.P., also wrote to the same effect. He thought his efforts must be devoted to the object of obtaining the college for the county, and not for any definite site in that county. It was decided that the public meeting be well advertized by means of placards, and that the town crier be instructed to announce it through the town.
MOLD. SCHOOL BOAILD.-The monthly meeting of this board was held on Tuesday, the Rev Roger Ed- wards presiding. The report of the examina- tion of the Mold Board School by her Majesty's inspector was read. It dealt fully with the con- dition of the school, and on the whole the tone was favourable. The total grant earned for the year was zC337 15s, being an increase of JE3 on the previous grant. A letter was read which the clerk had received from the Mayor of^Carnarvon, enclosing print of a petition to the Lord President of the Committee of Council on Education, urging the claims oi Carnarvon as the most central place for the erection of a college for Noith Wales. The clerk was ordered to lay the letter and petition on the table. The other business was routine.
ST. ASAPH. Ty MAWR FIRE.-A fire took place at the above farm on the 14th January, and a meeting was subsequently held at the Kinmel Arms Hotel on the 19th January, convened by a circular issued by Mr Joseph Lloyd to friends, neighbours, well- wishers, and faimers generally, to consider the best means of helping Mr Hughes in his trouble. At the meeting Mr John Story asked Mr Lloyd how much he thought he would be able to collect. Mr Lloyd replied. With yur assistance, Mr Story, we shall collect about £ 200.,f We are now glad to learn that over L200 has been paid to the credit of the treasurer of this fund (Mr Richard Griffiths), at the North and South Wales Bank, and the same will be present ed to Mr Abel Hughes on Monday next, at the Kinmel Arms Hotel, at 6 p.m., in a purse beautifully worked by the amiable and es- teemed landlady of that hotel.
CONWAY. STRANGE SCENES IN A WELSH VILLAGE.—Last week a special session was held at Conway, before Mr H. Kneeshaw and other magistrates, when Hugh Jones, Ty Ucha'; Hugh Jones, Pant-yr- afon; and Thomas J ones, Maen Aber; were charged with assembling with over forty persons and causing a riot; also with assaulting a married woman, named Mrs Elizabeth Burchell, wife of a seaman, living at Conway. Evan Owen, Caerhun, was also charged with the same offences, but he did not appear, and a warrant was- istued for his arrest. Mr Louis, Ruthin, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr Allanson, Carnarvon, represented the three defendants. It appears that on the night of the 13th ult. Mrs Burchell was sitting quietly in the bouse of her aunt at Gerlan, which is in the Vale of Conway, when the three defendands in court entered the house and assaulted her. They then brought her out of the house in com- pany with a young joiner, named Hugh Hughes, and, having tied them on a ladder, paraded them through the town singing in Welsh, The girl who was refused." The crowd became very disordely, and presented a more lawless appearance than in any part of Ireland. Evidence in corroboration of Mr Louis's statement was given by Mrs E. Burchell, who, in her cross- examination, swore positively that she never allowed Hughes any liberties, and never even allowed him to kiss her. Hugh Hughes, Mrs Williams, and Mrs Roberts (prosecutrix's mother), also gave evidence in support of the charge, For the defence it was contended that the complainant did not showjany disinclination to be carried about in the manner described, and evidently •rlJ°yea the fun as much as the inhabitants, as she waved her pocket-handkerchief and sang. It was further alleged that she looked upon the occurence as a mark of respect, aying that Mr Rathbone, although highly respected in the iaountry,had never received such a mark of distinction (laughter). After hearing evidence for the defence, the bench were unanimous in finding the defendants guilty, and a sentence of two months' imprisonment was passed upon them.
CARNiRYON. A little boy, who lives at Vinegar-hill, in this town, and who is parentless, late on Wednesday night last fell down from the top of the high wall on the south side of Balaclava-road, and sustained serious injuries. Mr Assheton Smith has expressed his readiness to give a portion of land to extend the parish churchyard of Carnarvon. The Nonconformists, however, are desirous of having a cemetery, or that upon such extention there should be erected a chapel, there being no place in which tervices under the Burials Act can be performed in the case of DiSsenters. I PLOUGHING MATCH.—By the eourtesy of Mr Humphreys, Royal Hotel, this uumul ploughing match came off on Friday, on (Jcfu Tro Hfiont farm. There was a large number ot entries, the judging taking up a long time. Messrs Edwards, Maenan; Williams, Criccieth; a, d Hughes, Bodeliwr, Llanerch-y-medd, were the judges, the chief awards being as follows —Class 1. Open ploughing: 1, Owen Jones, ploughman with Mr E. Humphreys, Royal Hotel; 2, William Evans, ploughman with Mr Richard Evans, Fieram, Llangristiolus. Class open to all comers: Evan Thomas, Neubwlch, Bangor. Captain Steward's prize for best butt: Owen Jones, ploughman with Mr E. Humphreys. Silver cup for tenant having the best team under six years: Griffith Roberts, Crug; protest lodged. Best team of any age ,dr Ellis, Tai'rroeibion, Bangor. Harness: 1, Mr Ellis, Tai'rmeibion; 2, Mr Ellis, Wig, Bangor. Maker of best plough in jiass 1 E. Davies, Car- narvon. The general arrangements were admirably carried out by Mr John Roberts, the secretary, who had an efficient aide in v'r R,. bert Williams, Brunswick Buildings. TuRp *-Qu&uE ENGLISH CHAPEl, LITERARY SOCIETY.-The weekly meeting of this society was held on Thursday evening, when the Rev. O. Edwards, B.A., delivered an excellent lecture on The Writings of St. Peter." BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—At Saturday's meeting there were present-Messrs R. Jones (chairman), T. Hughes, W. Jones (ClynDog); J. Jones, O. O. Roberts, Griffith Griffiths, R. Tuomas, W. Roberts, R. Jones, D. Jones, W. Williams, J. Roberts, W. M. Williams, W. Jones (Llanllyfni), W. Jones (Laufair), E. G. Roberts, J. Thomas, R.

Jones A letter was read from Miss Campbell, the Palace,Bangor, calling attention to the operations of the Society for the Home Teaching of the Blind, and asking for a subscription. It was slated that, should the guardians be desirous of acquiring full information as to the objects of the society, Captain Verney would be most happy ts wait upon them.

COUNTY COURT. This court was held en Tuesday, before Mr Horatio Lloyd, judge. Tne number of cases for hearing was unusually small. THE LLANBERIS BURIAL DISPUTE. This case was partly heard at the January court. The plaiiitiff, a quarryman named Griffith Williams, residing at Ll mberis, btied the Rev W. Edwards, the rector of that parbh, for the recovery of 10s 6d, being the amoant cf burial fees alleged to have been illegally paid to him by the plaintiff. The case for the plaititiff was that about seven months ago his child died, and as he belonged to the Calvinistic Methodist persuasion it was desired that the interment should take place under the -Burials Act. Information was conveyed to the Rev O. Davies, the curate of the parish, notifying that Mr John Owen Jones, the pastor of the Dissenting church of which plaintiff was a member, would officiate in the churchyard. It was alleged that Mr Davies then gave the plaintiff to understand that it the funeral took place under the act referred to a fee of 10s 6d would be demanded, the rector having, after the passing of the act, decided that the fee should be payable in cases where funeials of Nonconformists were conducted otherwise than according to the rites of the Church cf England. When it was explained to him that the universal practice cf the parishioners had been to make offerings" or voluntary contributions to cover all fees, the curate told the plaintiff that inasmuch as the church doors would be closed against funerals conducted under the new act, no "offerings" would be taken, there being no place for the purpose in the churchyald The plaintiff, being under the impression that the fee was imperative before interment could take place, he consented to pay the fee, and the funeral was conducted in the desired manner. For the plaintiff, Mr John Roberts, Pangor, contended that even if it were proved that fees had been paid from time im- memorial, the prt sumption of their existence was rebutted by their rankness, as the fee of the present would be equivalent to ;£10 or JE12 in the time of Richard II" a sum which no labouring man of that day could afford. Mr Louis, Ruthin, for the defence, argued that as the fee had been paid voluntarily by the plaintiff, it could not be recovered by law. Stonework had been made in the grave, and the fee was therefore payable, the tenancy of the coffin being consequently of longer duration. The plaintiff selected his own site, and on the ground of contract alone the rector had a right to retain the fee. Fees, it was urged had been paid in the parish during the last twenty years, and the rector had alway a been assessed for fees. His honour said he would not take any evidence on behalf of the rector, as he had decided to stop the case at this junctaro. He nonsuited the plaintiff, with the usual costs, on the ground that the payment of the fee was a voluntary one. The case was watched with interest by a large number of clergymen, Dis- senting ministers, and deacons. SESSIONS. — On Saturday, before Mr Whitehead and other magistrates, Thomas W. Thomas and William Roberts, quarrymen, Llan- ddeiniolen, were respectively fined 20s. and 10s aud costs for representing themselves as travellers and obtaining drink at the Rhyddallt Inn Llan- tug.
