We much regret thit, through an easily-explainc-d error we shcuid have represented in our account of the Borough Police Court last week that Mr John Lewis, of the Faleoll I P. n, had been summoned for keeping pigs within a certain distance of his d welling house, and had been otdered to pay the costs of the case. Mr John Lewis was Dot one of those who were so dealt with. He was amongst those whe were charged with a technical breach of the bye-Jaw requiring p:oper receptacles to be provided for manure. That case was proved by the Inspector of Nuisances, Mr John Morgan and tho rcntter was adjourned for a fortnight, in order to givo Mr Lewis time to carry out the necessary -itie arrangements. Th3 error was of a purely c'crical character—Mr John Los-is, of the Falcon inn, I being confused with Mr David Lewis, the New lUll-who was the gentleman thus charged, and jocularly recommended by Mr Morgan Griffiths to pay 6s 8d for a solicitor's advice.
