Davies, Crickhowell, moved in this case that the hearing be adjourned, on the ground of the illness of a witness. Mr Church, with Mr J. P. Lewis, of Llandilo, objected that the surgeon's cer. tificate was not on oath; bat on the evidence of one of the overseers of Llanelly. the Court post. poned the case on payment of the costs. Parish of Gellygare, Glamorganshire, appellants, and Parish of Llangunnider, respondents-This was an appeal against an order for the removal of an infant female child found on a danghill in the parish of Gellygare, and taken into the parish of Llangonnider, by a farmer's wife who was induced by a constable of Gedygare to take care of it until some settlement could be made. Mr Church and Mr D- Thomas, of Brecon, objected to the hearing, on the ground that a similar order of removal in this same case had been quashed last sessions; but the court over-ruled the objection as the former order had been quashed on an error in matter of form not matter of substance. Several objections were argued, but the principal fact on which the learned gentlemen took their stand with great skill was, that the second order had been made on the same examination of witnesses as the first order, which had been quashed, and that the very same copies of the examinations had been sent in the second instance to the appellant parish—Mr G. Davies, Crickhowell, and Mr Thomas Bishop, Brecon argued with great ability on the other side: and the court, after some consideration, confirmed the order of removal-Mr Church applied for a case for the Court of Queen's Bench, which was granted.
