FIRE.—O'n Saturday afternoon a dies- tructive fire took place in the works of Messrs Hugh -Jones and Co., marble mdsons. It originated about two o'clock in the engine-house, and from there spread to adjoining sheds in which are located W mass of maohinjery. These structures were of timber, thickly tarred over, and their inflammable character placed them hopelessly at the mercy of the flames, which blazed fiercely, :and afterwards spread to the framework of a travelling crane. In one of the sheds there were tanks of oil, which added greatly to the conflagration. Members of the fire brigade arrived en the spot as soon as summoned, and played on the fire with two lengths of hose, but the effect for some time was feeble owing to the low pressure of water. For some reason which has yet to be ex- plained the Are engine was not brought into use, otherwise the service would have been far more efficient owing to the proxi- mity of the works to the harbour. The sheds were gutted, but fortunately not much harm was done to the office, the books -and papers in which worn removed. Fortunately, also, the machinery escaped damage, with one or two exceptions. None of the marble masonry was affected, but several large slabs, which were being pre- pared for a Government contract, were cracked by the fire. Through the exer- tions of the fire brigade, assisted by numerous helpers, the fire was got under in about three hours. Part of the damage is covered by insurance. THEFT BY BOYS. — At the Borough Police Court, on Monday, before Dr G. R. Griffith, and other magistrates, .two youths named Richard Williams and William Lewis, residing in Baptist street, were charged by the police with stealing a quan- tity of brass from the ketch "Thomas and Sons" lying in the harbour. The charge against Lewis was withdrawn, and- he was placed in the witness box. He said that he met Williams in the quay on the 2nd inst., and went in a boat to the ketch "Th()t. mas and Song." Having boarded the ves- sel the defendant went into the cabin through the skylight and stripped a stove of its brass fittings. Defendant, accom- panied by witness, subsequently took the brass to David Davies' shop, in Pool street, where it was sold for 4d, half of which wit- ness received. — The Defendant, in an- swer to the charge, said that it was his mother who took the brass to D. Davies' shop. — Witness, on being asked to explain why he had' said that he and the defendant took the brass to the shop, saad that he simply related the story he had previously told the constable. It was true what the defendant had said that his mother took the brass to Davies' place. — The defen- dant's mother was called, and said that her son brought the brass into the house and explained that he had found it in the mud. She thereupon took it to Davies' shop and obtained lOd for it. She gave the defen- dant 2d and a like sum to Lewis. — The de- fendant was bound over under the First Offenders' Act. — David Davies, marine stone dealer, Pool street, was charged with receiving the property contrary to the pro- visions of the Old Met* 1 Dealers' Act. Supt. Rowland, who prosecuted, said that dealers in old metals, who either personally or by any servant or agent,, purchases, re- ceives, or bargains for old copper, brass, &c., in any quantity of less weight than 56lbs. is liable to a penalty of JB5. — The defendant pleaded ignorance of the law, and said that it was his daughter who re- ceived the property. — A Magistrate: If you buy small quantities of old metal from people it will be an inducement to them to steal. — The Bench imposed a penalty of 2s 6d and costs. — It was resolved to call the attention of marine store dealers to the law on the matter.

Menzies and other magistrates, the following were fined for drunkenness: Owen Jones, Ebenezer, 10s and costs; John Evans, Coedybrain, Llanwnda, 2s 6d and costs; W.
