An accident, which might have terminated fatally, took place last Monday morning. It appears that an oil woman 70 years of age name 1 Mary Jones was proceeding down Ro-semary-laue (alias Dirty-lane ) when dk • wa? met|">y a horse and cart. The lane being so narrow, it was impossible for the womir; to pasq he carr, an;1 she turned into a war-house belonging to Messrs A. and T. Ashford,where a trap dooz leading to the cellar happened to be Gpen. This trap door was within a foot of where ,he wasstanding. The woman, being Ditturall, nervous, took fright w en the cart horse nei^ed, and backed a p -tee with the result that she f 1 on her back through the trap door into the cellar, a dittmce of ab,)ut seven or eipht feet. The floor of the cellar waf; covered over with w¡.Jt"r) and when thi unf-riunate womn up she was in a prec-irijus st:tte, bei..g met all ov,-r, and quite insensible. F)rtunatel..Y, how- ever, after a quantity of brandy hud been forced down her throat, she soot. came to herself, and, with t ie exception of a stunning, appeared none tht w -re after her fall and bath. It is a matter to be wondered at that she was not killed on the spot. "UIVDBB THE PALMS."—On Monday evening last, an the English Presbyterian chapel, Vale- atreet, a cantata entitled" Under the PalTaa (Root) or a description of the Jewish Flower Feast, was given by the English Choir. The sacreo edifice ilati becu insiriuiij' decorated ior tne occasion, a number of fl,wets, plants, &c having been kindiy lent by Messrs John Williams and Son, Brookhouse Nurseries. Over the platform a beautiful arch, bearing the inscription Under the PalmI," made in flowers, had been raised, While exquisite floral wreaths were arranged wound the building. This, together with the. bouquets of flowers which were carried by th6 lady-members of the choir, made a very picturesque scene, which was quite in harmony with the cantata performed. The choir is as yet only in its i'afancy, but, under the direction of its talented Lader, it has greatly improved since it gave it;, last performance, and we congratulate its member- on the fact. The artiste* were Miss Parry Williams (contralto), Mies Jenny Jones (soprano;, Messrs E Winter (bass), and J. Wil- liams (tenor;, all of whom gave undoubted satis- faction. Ths harmonium was presided over by Hiss Williams, Britannia J Buildings, wtrile Miss Roberts, High-street, accompanied on the piano. The cantata was admirably pej formed, and seemed to greatly please the audience. The recitation, "By Alava River," was given by Mr Gwilym Hughes, reporter. A most successful entertain- ment WAS brought to a clofe by a vote of thanks, proposed by Mr MacMurray, to all those who bad taken part, and also to Mr Williams, Brookhouse, for his generosity in lending the flowers. The attendance was on the whole good, but it is to be groatly regretted that the performance of sacred roueic cannot command a full "house." in such a musical tow-i as Denbigh. POLICE COURT, FKIDAY.—Before the mayor (Mr J. H. Jones), the ex-mayor (Mr E. T. Jones), Mr ThomAS Evans, and Mr W. Morrip. Drunk and Biotous at the late Ploughing Match. -For being drunk and riotou3 on Friday, the 24th February, it the ploughing match the following per3ons were each fined 2s 6d and costs, or in de- fault seven days' imprisonment: —Joseph Evaus, Lonton Poole; W. Roberts, labourer, Henllan- street; Jonathan Evans, and Richard Parry, Llandyntog; and W. Williams, 3s and costs. The mayor, ».tter leasesjhad been disposed of, remarked that the whole of these cases arose from the use of drink en the ploughing field. They, as a bench, gat i a license to sell refreshments on the field that day, and it was certain that they would take these oases into conrideiallion when the application for the same license next year would be made.—Mx John Lloyd, Ball Hotel, said that he was the per- son to whom the license was granted. Though he had a right to do so earlier, he did not sell drink before 12 a.m., and closed his tent at 6 p.m. :But the fact was, there was a large quantity of drink on the ground before he opened his tent, and through all the day persons continually arrived from tow a with bottles of liquors in their possess- ion. Drunk and Riotous.-Robert Jones (alias Felin Wynt"), Lenton Poole, was charged at the in- atemea of P.O. Madden with being drunk and riotous about 1 a.m. on tha morning of the 26th wit. It appears that defendant had been drinking in the house of a person named Bioore, wheie some words passed between him and the latter, which resulted in blows. When the constable appealed on the spot he requested the defendant to go Lome quietly, but he blankly refused to do so and challenged the constable to fight. In a struggle that ensued it seems that Madden, the constable, was severely bitten on his thumb. Defend int was fiaed 5s and costs, or in default seven days. Assault.—Jane Jones (alias "Shiani'r Big"), wife of William Jones, Henllan-street, charged Eliza D ivies, of the same street, with assaulting her or, fhe 6th instant. The evidence on both aides in this case is of such a disgraceful character that we refrain from inserting it. Defendant was bound < ver in the sum of tlO to keep the peace for 12 months. Neglettful Ratepayer.—EJward Hughea, High- gate, was charged at the instance of Mr E. Mills, asaifltant overseer, with neglecting to pay a poor. late of is 9d.—Defendant s wife appeared, and as an excuse pleaded that they were too poor to pay rates.-The bench allowed defendant seven days to pay -he rate, at the end of which time a distress warrant would be issued if the rate remained un. paid.

The mayor read a circular received by him from the Lord Mayor of London bearing upon the above /jubject. A large meeting was held the j2*er in Manchester, in which the Prince of Wales an the Duke of Edinburgh were present, aud there decided that a Royal College of Music should be established in the kingdom. BI9 worship went on to explain the matt r, and re- marked that, taking into consideration how notor- ious Welshmen wee for fhnr mus ca' talents, they should be the first to support. this movement in- augurated by the Prince o Wales. He then read a letter from Mr Tofnahcnd Mainwaring, who seemed greatly in favour of the project, stating that Mrs Main waricp nud I'm self would gladly ooiitrlbute L5 each, if the c uucil should decide upon opening a fund at Denbigh. He (the mayor) then proposed that the council should manifest their approval of this movement b < starting a fund in the locality in its support, the two ;iocal banks to be appointed treas lters, and that the town clerk do act as clerk This was sec a led by Alderman T. J. Williams, aad unanimously agreed to. j llUDIC&L OFFICER'S REPORT. ) The medical officer (Dr G. W.

The surveyor reported thet the w'dening of Red. i/tie ly Mr Griffiths, the contractor, was progress- ing satistactorily. He also reported with regard to several obstructions in drains, it was agreed that t-ey should be removed. INSPECTOR OF NPI8ANCBS. The inspector of nuisance reported that two houses at the bottom of Red lane, the property of UrJohn Lloyd, Bull Hotel, wereunfit for habita- tion. It was decided tecomrnunicate with Mr Lloj d with a view to pulling them down. THE MEMORIAL FOR THB COLLBOH. L tters were read from Sir Watkm Williams Wynne, M.P.; tLe Right:Hon. G. Osborne Morgan, 51. J.; and Sir R. A. Cunliffe, M.P., acknowledging the leceipt of the memorial iu favour of selecting Deabigh as the locale of the proposed university. Mr Osoorna Morgan feared that if business in Parliament would long continue to be carried on as at present the subject of higher education in Wales would not be considered for a long time. OUT-STANDING RATES. Mr E. Mills, the collector, wrote to the cauncil titating that as a large su n of the general district tite was out-standing, he would be glad to receive instruction as to whether he was to compel differ- ent parties to pay their arrears before the new rate would be due. An order was given to Mr Mills to summon al1;who where in arrears, ESTIMATES. Mr W. T. Foulkes considered that the surveyor's estimates for different works should not be'read at a public meeting like this; and he doubted, the propriety of allowing a contractor who contracts for a large share of the council's work to be present when such estimates were read. The estimates were drawn out for the benefit of the c Duncil, and not for the benefit of the public at large. He was aware that the ratepayers were at liberty to come to their public meet ngs, but their committees were strictly private, and he would therefore propose that the estimates should be con- sidered in committee. Mr W. Morris seconded the motion, but he wished to know from Mr Foulkes how it was to be done were the ratepayers to be turned out of the room, and the "house" form into committee for the time the estimates were read ? Also, were the press to be allowed to remain in the room ? Mr Foulkes replied that he had every confidence in the gentlmon of the press; they knew what was fit to put in the paper, and what was not. If the council formed itself into committee to con- sider the estimates he would move the ejection of the ratepayers, but not the reporter?. The Mayor said that the reporters were quite as liable to let things out of the ceuncil as the rate- payers were, and he therefore thought that the better plan was to ask everybody, with the excep- tion of the council and the members, to leave the room. After some further discussion in the same strain, this was agreed to. THB 8MITHFIELD. The Mayor said that the next question was whether Glas Meadows should be let for this year, or whether the council should proceed to convert it into a smithfleld, for which purpose it was originally bought. This matter had been before the council for the last month, and it was now time that something should be done. Mr Thomas Williams, Gwynant, proposed that Glas Meadows should be let for grazing purposes until the last day of November next. Alderman T. J. Williams seconded. The council had plenty of work now before them, with the eisteddfod, agricultural show, and other things, so that this matter could easily be left alone for some time. The motion was then put to the meeting and passed. Mr W. Morris asked whether the land should be let by contract or by auction ? Some discussion followed this query, but eventually it Was decided on the motion of Mr R A. Davies that it be let by auction on the next fair day.
