COUNTY COURT. The usual monthly sitting of the court took place on the 10th and 12 eh. inst. About 100 cases had been entered for trial, but the great majority of them were uninteresting to the public. Thomas v. Dawson.-This action was brought to recover twenty-one shillings from the defendant, the Roman Catholic priest at Dowlais, for breaking in his horse. 1 rom the evidence adduced, it appeared that defendant agreed with plaintiff to break in his horse, and to give him a guinea if he did it to his satisfaction; that plaintiif took the horse out for three or four days, when defendant told him that he could dispense with his services, as he considered that he used unnecessary violence, causing the horse's legs to become swollen, &e. Defendant had paid 6s. and costs into court. In the course of the day, judg- ment was given in defendant's favour. Harris v. Dawkins.-Plaintiff claimed jE8 13s. lOd. for goods sold and delivered. Upon examining plaintiff 's books, they did not' at all appear to agree with the particulars furnished and he not being able to give satisfactory explanations, judg- ment was given for only E -1, the amount admitted by defendant to be due. Leigh v. Price. Plaintiff claimed £2 6s. lOd. for work and labour done in instructing defendant's daughter, and for mate- rials and coals supplied. Defendant had paid £ 1 2s. lOd. into court, and disputed the remainder of the claim, because plain- tiff had not employed a competent governess as agreed upon, if the amount now claimed was to be charged. Plaintiff denied that such an agreement had been made. Several witnesses were examined on both sides; and his honour ultimately gave judgment in favour of the plaint-Iff for the full amount, less two shillings for coil.
