Mr Tones-Parry addressed the meeting in Welsh. He said he came before them now not as a candidate, but as their duly elected member.

MR SORTON-PARRY ON HIS DEFEAT. Mr Sorton-Parry, accompanied by Mr Pugh, Mr Williams, the Rev J. Spinther James, and a few other supporters, proceeded to the Castle Hotel, facing the square, where a large crowd of people had assembled. In response to calls from the ttrowd he went on to the balcony of the hotel, and Was received with a storm of miogled cheers and hisses. Some fireworks were set off amongst the Crowd, which caused great amusement amongst the juveniles. The Rev J. Spiuther James ad- dressed the crowd, and asked them as Welshmen to behave generously to a fallen opponent, and announced that Mr Sorton-Parry would say a few Words of thanks to the 596 voters who had sup- ported him. Svr Sorton-Parry then tendered his grateful thanks to the 596 electors who had voted for him and fought an independent battle. They had Deen defeated, but not disheartened (cheers and hoot- tog). He promised to give them the opportunity *I fighting again, when he trusted to have con- siderably more support, and that he would be placed in the proud position of being the member for those boroughs. Now that the battle was over, he hoped all ill-feeling and irritation would pass away, and that they would all disperse quietly to their homes. He hoped that his conduct in this contest had been fair and honourable. He believed he had gained the goodwill and esteem of a great fcttmber of people in those boroughs (cheers). He Was not in tne least disheartened, but could promise them emphatically that he would fight the battle again. He was proud that he had elicited the good feeling of a number of the leading Liberals (cheerw and groans), and amongst the rest he nee I only Mention the compliment paid him by Captain Veruey and Mr Morgan Lloyd (cheers). He again Oorclially thanked them, and wished them good %ight.

COUNTY POLICE COURT, WHDNESDAY.— Before Captain Wynn Griffiths, Mr P. H. Chambres, Major Berch, Major Mainwaring, Mr Oliver Burton, and the Rev J. Pugh. Carrying a Gun without a ZtcenM.—Mr H. J. .Lloyd, a gentleman of independent means residing ia L'lnfion, was charged at the instancejof Mr W. Hickson, superintendent of excise, with carrying a fun without a license on the 5th of October last. The hcts of the case, as elicited in evidence, are al:l foJIows -The prosecutor, Mr Hickson was on the day in question proceeding along the Holy- head-road in the direction of Cerygydruidion, when he heard gun shots and men's voices close by. He waited some time to see if any game was started or shot. However, he proceeded to the spot from whence the voices seemed to come, and after climbing over a high bank came face to face with the defendant, who was carrying a gun. There were two other persons with him, one of whom also carried a gun. He (witness) asked them for their license, but as neither a game nor a gun license was produced, he took their names. After- wards he ascertained that the defendant took out a game license the afternoon of that very day. Mr Odbert Edwards (Ruthin) appeared for the de. fendant, aud stated that his client did not deny the facts of the case, as stated by Mr Hickson. But on that day he (defendant) was induced bo one of his relatives, with whom he was staying for a short time, to accompany him for a day's shooting. This was done, but defendant had no intention to defraud the revenue, as was proved by the fact, that the moment he had found out that he had committed an offence he drew out a game license.— The bench, however, took a different view of the case and fined the defendant £ 2 10s and costs. COUNTY COURT, TUESDAY.—Before Mr Horatio Lloyd, judge. An Order Renewed. -Littler and Williams, grocers, &c., Vale-street, sued Frances Hughes for L15 9s 3s, for value of goods supplied by them to defendant's wife. It appears that the plaintiffs in this case obtained a judgment against the de- fendant for this amount at a.previous court, and that the money was to be paid by instalments however, this had not been complied with. It was stated that defendant was in good circum- stances, and that his wife kept a little shop.- Order renewed Cutting Land contrary to Agreement.-This was an action brought by Mr J. Vaughan Jones, Groes, against his tenant Robert Fou kes, Bryn farm, for damages consequent upon the defendant's cutting or ploughing certain arable land contrary to the agreement of tenancy -Mr Marcus Louis, Ruthin, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr It H Roberts Denbigh, defended. —The hearing 0?'tMs Cat occupied a very long time, and was the cause of a lengthy discussion between the advocates on various technical points.—Mr Jones, the plaintiff, said that on the second day of February, 1879, he let Bryn farm which was his property, to the defendant. The land was then in grass, and had been so for 14 or 15 years. It was agreed between the defendant and himself that the land should not be ploughed; that he (plaintiff) should not take hay two years in succession; and that the land should be manured. In August last, he ('vitness) gave defendant six months' notice to quit the farm and on the 12th of last January he gave him a second notice. However, after receiving the second notice he began to plough the grass land in front of the house. He (witness) then produced the agreement of tenancy in which it was plainly stated that the land should not be ploughed. Witness had always let the farm on the same terms -Robert Foulkes, the defendant, was then called, and said that he was a tenant of the plaintiff, and lived in Bryn farm. When he agreed with the plaintiff there was not a Word said about the manner in which the land was to be ploughed. He was not hound not take hay two years in succession, and nothing was said about manuring the land. He commenced ploughing on the 26th of last January, altar having received a second notice to quit on the 12th of the same month.—In cross-examination, defendant said that the plaintiff promised to build Ui i» a curt- shed and a granary on the land.-For the offence, Mr Roberts contended that there was no agree- ment made prohibiting defendaut from ploughing the land; and called numerous witnesses to piove that the land had been ploughed recently. -David Williams said that his sister was the tenant of Bryn farm, about 10 year ago, and that it was th-n ploughed-he (witness) himself being there sowing. lie did not recollect his sister ever ask- ing the permission of the plaintiff to plough the field.William Williams said that he once resided at Peu-y-cae, which is now part of the Brynfarm. He ploughed the field with the plaintiff's tea- William Williams, Park, said that he ploughed some of the fields to plant sweedes and potatoes — Moses Williams said that he recollected a person named Shairach Roberts living at Bryn farm- He (witness) bought some sweedes from him which he (Roberts) had grown on the land.-Mr Marcus Louis for the prosecution contended that permis- sion TfrAs given by the plaintiff to the other tenants to plough the land. In giving judgment his ho our said that he was perfectly satisfied that there was an agreement between tho parties not to plough the land. He would give judgment iorthe plaintiffs, but he wished to k-;owwa it the damage done to a t acre field called Cae-pen y-cae was assessed at.—Mr J Roberts, Geinas, sai l that lie inspected Cae-pen-y-cae, and he considered tb;,t i" 'p the damage was very trifi'ng.—Mr W. Edwards, Ruthin, corroborated the previous eviden c, and said that if the plaintiff could substantiate his claim he would assess the damage at £ 1 Is.—His honour said that having heard all the evidence, he would give judgment in favour of the plaintiff for £ 2 2s. A Would-be Journalist and his Compontwns.—W H. Davies, bookseller, Vale-street, Denbigh, sued Messrs D. W. Davies and Co., publishers, North Wahs Express Office, Carnarvon, for L7 8s 6d, be- ing an amount claimed by plaintiff for various jottings and reports sent by him for publica- tion in the North Wales Express. Mr W. B. C. Tomkinson, solicitor, Carnarvon, appeared for the defendants, and Mr R. H. Roberta, Denbigh, had been engaged for the plaintiff, but at the last moment Mr Roberts returned the papers and declined to advocate the plaintiff's claims Tne plaintiff said that in November, M880, he commenced sending reports for publication in the North Wales Express for which he now charged Illd a line.—His Honour: Why do you charge lid a line ? I have heard of psnny-a- liners (laughter). Witness: Because they were "exclusive" repoxts. The amount of the claim is made up by this charge, together with the money I spent for postage stamps and unsold papers returned. I agreed with the representa- tive of the paper, Mr W. H. Davies, about the time of the general election, to seud them some Denbigh news, and that gentleman promised that I should be treated handsomely if I did. I did not entel upon any agree in ent, as I never make agreements for reporting.—Mr Tomkinson, for the defence, said that the plaintiff's productions were inserted as a particular favour for the plaintiff. He (plaintiff) told Mr W. H. Davies, the representative of the paper, that he was very backward in his English, and would esteem it a favour if his productions, after being corrected and revised, were inserted in the Express; so that he might see, by comparing his written copy with that printed, where his faults were. Mr W. H. Davies promised him that such should be done, at least if head or tail could be made of his writings. This was promised purposely and solely as an encouragement to the plaintiff, and not a word was said about paying him. Indeed, it took more time to revise, correct, and even re-write his productions, than what they were worth. He (plaintiff) had a knack of mixing the reports of markets with matters relating to Ritualism and Popery (loud laughter), as some of his composi- tions, which would be produced, would show.—Mr Henry Davies, the plaintiff's father, then came forward, and asked his honour for permission to appear for his son. This was granted, and Mr Davies caused some laughter in court by his excited appearance, and by hastily taking the oath before it was administered to him. Mr Davies then made a long statement partly corroborative of plaintiff's evidence, and stated that l^ i a line for "exclusive" reports was by no means an ex- horbitant charge, as the gentlemen around him connected with the press could testify." One of those gentlemen, however, when called upon, stated that he never in his life, under any circumstances received more than Id a line for reports. Mr Davies then made various insinuations against the defendants, which called for the censure of the registrar of the court.- Mr W. B. 0. Tomkillson eaid that he was a part proprietor of the North Wales Express, a'ld knew something of the custom of paying correspond- ents. All contributions were not paid for. The productions of the plaintiff were sent voluntarily, and were inserted at his particular request. His (the plaintiff's) name was not to be found on the list of paid correspondents.—Mr Tomkinson, the defendant's solicitor, then submitted for his honour's perusal a fair sample of the plaintiff's cornpoiition in order to prove that he (plaintiff) was but a novice at the work, and that no pub- lisher possessed of common sense would pay such a writer for his productions.—His Honour: If this is a fair sample of his composition the whole of it was altogether worthless. Indeed it would be impossible to insert such stuff. He therefore gave judgment for the defendants. A. Dispute between Two Drapers.—-In this case Mr Hugh Hughes, draper, High street, was the plaintiff and Mr Knowles, Vale-street, draper, the defendant. Mr T. P. Lewis appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Marcus Louis, Ruthin, de- fended. It appears that in 1873 Mr Knowles, the defendant, took possession of a shop belong- ing to plaintiff at No. 26 Vale-street, under a lease of five years, and in which lease there was a covenant to the effect that the lessee was to leave the premiees in the same state of repair as when he entered. This had not been done, and the present claim was that of X6 Us 6d, value of fixtures removed, of glass broken, and rent of a stable held by the defendant for nine months. -Mr Hugh Hughes, the plaintiff, said that when Mr Knowles entered the shop no glass was broken; there were shelves on one side of the shop, and fixtures on the other. The gas fittings were complete, and supports for the said boards were in the window. There was but a small part of these fixtures now on the premises. Var- ious witnesses were called to corroborate this evidence. Mr Knowles deposed that he had spent over L20 to improve the premises during the time he held them, and that he had paid the sum of £1 13s into court to cover the value of one piece of stained glast broken while in his possession. Other witnesses were called, and finally his honour gave judgment for Plaiutift for zC4 17s.
HOLYHEAD. PETry SESSIONS, WEDNESDAY. — Before General Hughes, Rev J. Richards, and Mr Griffith] Williams.

When it was reported to Sergeant Toohill that the saw was missing be suspected that the prisoner was the guilty party, and he engaged him to fdo a job lof carpentering work at his residence, and the saw was there identified by Pritchard. Prisoner in defence stated that he had not taken the article with tho intention of keeping it, but having been sometime out Ofwork and having obtained a job, he having no tools, had taken the loan of it and intended to return it when the work was done. He was sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment with hard labour. Assault and Malicious hyury. — Margaret Williams, Reek-street, appeared in answer to a summons by O,ven Williams, living in the same street, charging her with the above offence on the 22nd ult. There was also a cross-summons charging Owen Williams with having assaulted Margaret Williams on the same date. These cues arose out of a dispute between the parties as to the tenancy cf a gardon iu Cae-doctor. Margaret Williams's son had routed the garden for the last five years, allowing his father and mother the use of half of it, they paying him half of the reút He died in August last, and as his widow had no use for the garden, Margaret Williams had applied to the agent, Mr T. P. Elliott, and he h-td p omised her that she should have it. Subsequently it was handed over to Oweu Williams, and Margaret Williams uprooted some cabbage plants which he had planted and assaulted him. Mr E. G, Roberts appeared ou behalf of Margaret Williams, aud objected to the jurisdiction of the magistrates to try the case on the ground that there was a question of t tie between the parties as to who was the tenant. The three cases were dismissed. Assault.-Robert Hughes, Treddafydd Isaf,Tref draetb, was charged by John Lewis, Soar, Aber- ffraw, with having assaulted him ne;T Bodorgan Station, on the 13th inst. Defendant aeized,' him and pitched him over a wall, and a stoue out of the wall fell Mpon his mouth, cutting his lip and loosening several teeth. He was so seriously in- jured that he was confined to bed for 9 days. Defendant was sent to goal for one month with hard kboTir. Breach of the Peace.-Henry Wright, 2, North West-street (who did not appear), was charged by Captain R. R. Jones, Stantley-crescent, with having assaulted him on the 6th inst. A warrant was issued for his apprehension.
RHYL. PBTIY SHSSIONS—On Wednesday, Messrs Roger Hughis, Thomas Evans, F. P. Lewis, and A. W. Merriciew were appointed overseers for the parish of Rhuddlan.-Hugh Nolan, Rhyl, was fined 20s and costs for travelling without a ticket from Aberge e to Rhyl, Mr Preston, juu., who prose- cuted, remarking that the offence was n."w much on the increase. — Henry Williams, aged 20, against whom there were six previous convictions, was committed for two months for stealing 5s 6d at Rhuddlan.
MOLD. PETTY SESSIONS.—On Monday, before Mr J. Scott- Bankes and other magistrates, the following gentlemen were appointed as overseers for the parish of Mold :—Messrs Edward Griffith s, High-street; George Taylor, Argoed; and James Griffiths, Ty-newydd. The license of the Black Diamond Inn, Coedtalon, was transferred to Robert Jones; that of the Bridge Inn, Tryddyn, to John Rogers that of the Talbot Inn, Wrexham-street, Mold, to John Evans; and a temporary transfer was granted to John Jones, Pied Bull, Pentre'; and to Thomas Catherall, Blue Bell, New Brighton. Seventeen men employed at the Llong cannel pits, belonging to Mr E. Thompson, J.P. (who retired from the bench duiiiig thj hearing), were summoned for neglect of work. Mr H. G. Roberts prosecuted, and Mr G. Trevor Roper defended. On the suggestion of Mr Roper the cases of Thomas Jones and Evan Parry were taken separately and first. M: Roberts said that in consequence ef something which had previously occurred, Thomas Jones was asked by the steward to remain on the pit top, on the morning of the 14th March, until he was seen by the manager, Mr Hollis. This he did not do, but went down the pit, where he was told not to go on with his work until he had seen Mr Hollis. Thereupon, 16 of the men refused to work that day. The proprietors were not actuated by any vindictive feeling, as the defendants might easily have been indicted for conspiracy, but instead of that they were only summoned for neglect, and the damages laid at 58 each, instead of 40s, the loss actually incurred. The result of the conduct of the defendants was that the 160 men employed in the pit were kept idle for a day. Mr Roper, for the defence, pleaded that Thomas Jones was stopped for an Imaginary offence, and that Evan Parry did not leave his work with the others. In the result, the cases as against the two named were dismissed, whilst the remaining 15 were fined 5s and costs. Mr E. Thompson, after hearing the decision, said the action was not brought from any vindictive feeling, but simply for the vindication of the rules in force at the colliery. He asked the bench to remit the fines, on condition that the defendants pay the costs and behave better in future. The defendants were accordingly mulcted in 5s cost each.
BANGOR. At Wednesday's meeting of the rural sanitary authority of the Bangor and Beaumaris Union, Mr Lloyd (Gorad-y-gyt) was re-elected inspector and surveyor, an addition of £5 being made to his precious salary.

Williams and Hughes, Carnarvon, were the vendors' solicitors. A BANGOR ARTIST AND THE ROYAL ACADEMY.— Mr W. G. Shrubsole, of Bangor, has despatched three pictures to the Royal Academy, and hopes to follow up his success there of last year. The most important work is a large painting, 6ft. by 4ft. 6in., entitled, "A Crown of Fire," a view of the Great Glyder mountain from the shore of Lake Ogwen, the summit bathed in a strong effect of a crimson sunset, while all the rest of the picture is in strong deep tone. Another picture, the same size, called A Gusty Morning at Ogwen," is an effect of squally weather, bursts of light breaking the clouds, and brightly illuminating the broken water in the foreground, which the furious gusts whip up into driving spray. The other picture is a co kit-cat" -sized upright, of a mountain and torrent scene, remarkable more for its truthful colour and strength of handling than for any attempt at uncommon effect. COMMITTED FOB MANSLAUGHTER.—At the petty sessions on Saturday, before Col. Williams and Mr Pierce, Evan Hughes, labourer, Glanadda, was charged with the manslaughter of his wife. Mr S. R. Dew, who prosecuted on the part of the police, detailed the circumstances under which the prosecution had been instituted.

It was found necessary to have an inquest, and evidence was tendered by the neighbours to prove that the deceased, who was a French polisher by trade and the daughter of a Liverpool tradesman, had been systematically abused oy her husband, and was seldom without a black eye or other marks of violence. Evidence given by Dr E. Lloyd and Dr Robert LangJord Jones, who made the post- mortem examination, showed that the woman was I a habitual drunkard, her organs being so diseased that the least violence might have accelerate^ •ieatli. A sou of the deceased swore that hisstHp- j father thrashed the woman on the back wnh a father thrashed the woman on the back wnh a lipper on the night of her death; and John Hickey, who had worked with her, said that she iiequentiy complained about the ill-treatment received from her husband, who had admitted to him that he bad struck her with some blunt in- strument. The man was severely censured b) t: v coroner, and consequent upon the further t.tct-1 which came under the notice of the police, a pro seeution was instituted. Evidence having btkn given by Dr LloJd and other witnesses called ..if t the inquest, the prisoner was committed tu th* assizes UpJU a charge of manslaughter.

The clerk explained that they would not do so, HHU that they would not even pay for the use of the engines. Mr Roberts thought they ought to pa) the medical gentleman's fee, by all means. Mi- George James To make up for the charges made for the in jury could we not charge the insurance company for the water used forextinguishingthe fire. The Chairman said that :there was no doubt thT, they were bound to pay the fee but at the a,, in, time they could try and obtain what amount they could from the insurance societies. If each of them were to give a donation of one guiuea it would be something.—It was ultimately decid d to write to the companies asked for a contribution. —A complaint was made that the gas lime WHS allowed to be cariied through the town. Mr Jones, the gas engineer appeared and said that they could not clear it away through any other way and if they took it away by other roads it would, if anything, be worse. The Chairman hav. ing made a suggestion to the effect that the noxious matter should be covered with (manure or refuse ashes, the manager was requested to adopt this plan in future.-The Cle k stated that he had received a letter from Mr Wilson, dentist, and neighbour, asking the board to lay down a foot path opposite his house at Pendref A discussion followed in which the clerk brought forward instances in which the board had acted under similar circumstances, and it was decided to decline the application for the present.

A Berlin telegram announces the fact that the German army and the military resources of the country have been placed in readiness to meet any contingency which might arille from the assumption of a warlike attitude by Russia. Not- withstanding these precautions, however, it is intimated that the German authorities are satie- fied that the inefficiency of the Russian army and the want of financial resources offer the best safe- guard of peace.

LLANGOLLEN. SERIOUS CHARGE.—Last week, William Evans, alias Clogswn, 20, a boatman, was brought up on remand before Mr G. LI. Dickin, charged with having committed a rape on a little girl six years of age, daughter of another boatman. Evidence was given by the girl, her mother, and grand- mother, also by Dr Gray, Rhos y-medre. The alleged offence was committed at Trevor on Sun- day, March 5. Prisoner, who was apprehended at Nantwich by P.C. Brooke, Vron, was committed for trial at the next assizes. A GIRL LOST.- Early on Friday morning a girl about 16, daughter of Mr Thomas Martin, Lian- tysilio, went out of the house unknown to her mother, who was in bed, and has not been heard of since. A neighbour asserts that she saw her near a tree close to the bank of the river Dee, which lies about two minutes' walk from the house It is conjectured that the poor girl must by some means have fallen down the steep bank into the river, although no trace of footmarks can be dis- cerned near the spot indicated. The police and neighbours are making a diligent search, but there being a high flood in the river, it is impossible at present to see anything in the water.
&4d there were also present Captain O. B. Thomas, Messrs W. J. Williams, J. Jones, T. Bugbird, D. W. Davies, &c The Chairman opened the proceedings in a brief speech in the varnacular, alter which he called upon the candidate to aidress the meeting. Mr Jones-Parry, on rising, was received very enthusiastically. He need not say many words, because they knew how he had been attending Public meetings — nearly two a day—for the past week, and, as the y would see more or less from the Papers, though there had been mistakes in them Perhaps intentional or unintentional, or perhaps Hat sufficiently reported. Constantly he had bean '-ttlsuuderstood. He thought, however, he had Satisfactorily explained what his real views weie tiie two subjects on which he had been mis- understood—namely, the Cloture or s u up, and the question of local option. He distinctly promised, and alway intended, to support Mr Gladstone in his new rules (hear, hear). He stated that he disapproved 01 ttie purely French method (hear). It he had their vote-and he trusted he would—he should be able to get to London in ample time to take the. oath and his Beat in the home on Thursday afternoon, and be able to support with his vote Air Gla istoue in the divi sion which would betaken on Thursday night (applause). If, on the other hand, the,, considered Mr Sorton-Parry (hisses) the better man, then let them send him up by all means ("Never") and vote for Mr Gladstone. He was Borry on that occasion to have to fi^ht a man of chiefly his own Diode of thinking, because it was not a fight. He should prefer more having a good stand. up fight with. a thorough Tory (laughter), and by their good help have given him a thorough thrashing Out that was such an unfortunate fight. He was Afraid, and he had been told BO, t at vrfSt numbers Of Conservative voters in the boroughs would vote for Mr Sorton- Parry. He would impress upon them very strongly the importance of every one of them coming to the pull and polling early, and he Would venture respectfully to say, let them try And consider in their own minds that th- ir one vote Wo turn the election, as it had done before that day. He had not known whether it was two or three votes that turned the election in Flintslairc. A very great general once BIMd that no greater tnoral mistake could be made by a general than to underrate the enemy (hear). The speaker re- ferred to the disorder that occurred at his opponent's meeting in that hall last week, and said it was his particular desire that Mr Sorton-Parry should have fair play. But perhaps he (Mr Sorton-Parry) had nothing very interesting to sa", except perhaps to cause some amusement (laughter). In conclusion he asked them to choose between the two candidates, and vote for who they thought the best man (loud applause). The meeting has also addressed by Mr Morgan Lloyd, QO., M.P., who was accorded an enthusiastic reception, Mr W. A. Darbishire, Captain G. B. Thomas, and other gentlemen.
