NANTWICH. POACHERS BOMBARDING AN ALLEGED IN- FORMER'S HousE.-At Nantwich, on Monday, Joseph Stockton was sent to gaol for a month for damaging the house of John Bonnell, Audlem, under extraordinary circumstances. The complainant was alleged to have given information to the police respecting some poachers at Audlem, and at midnight on Satur- day the prisoner and a gang of men, who were known poachers, attacked his house, smashing the panels of the front door with sticks, bom- barding the house, and hurling bricks through the windows at the complainant, whose life was threatened. SINGULAR PROCEEDINGS AT AN IRISH WAKE.— At Nantwich, on Monday, Thomas Jones, of Crewe, was charged with assaulting a woman named Johannah Heywood. The prisoner's father is a lodging-house keeper at Nantwich, and on the day of the assault prisoner's mother lay dead in the house, and preparations were being made for holding a wake. Suddenly the prisoner interfered, and said there should be no wake, up:m which the complainant com menced to remove the plates of tobacco which were to be used in the wake. This annoyed the prisoner, and the complainant said he kicked her and otherwise assaulted her.—The prisoner declared that he was in charge of the house when complainant came in and commenced doing what she liked.—The prisoner, who had been previously convicted of assault, was fined 10s. and costs. THE JUBILEE -FUND.-At the fortnightly meeting of the Nantwich Urban District Council on Friday evening, Dr. Munro complained of the dissatisfaction which was felt by certain trades- men that their accounts were not yet settled in connection with the Jubilee demonstration and treat. About X180 was raised by public sub- scription, and, with the exception of X15 uncol- lected, paid into the bank. It appeared that there was still X25 short of the total amount required, and Dr. Munro and Mr. Boyer, another member, asserted that some of the money had not been wisely and properly applied, and that there ought to have been a surplus instead of a deficiency. It was decided to call a meeting of the Demonstration Committee for the purpose of clearing up the matter. SERIOUS TRAP ACCIDICNT.-As Miss Amelia Garner, daughter of Mr. George Garner, farmer, Hatherton, was driving through Nantwich on Sunday afternoon, the horse suddenly bolted on the square. The frightened animal dashed at a furious rate towards Pillory-street, and as Miss Garner pulled the rein for the purpose of preventing a collision with Mr. Chesters' shop the horse swerved on to the footpath, and the wheel coming sharply against the kerb near Mrs. Clarke's, confectioner, she was thrown out of the vehicle, and with great force came in contact with the kerbstone. Her forehead was cut open to the bone, the wound being four inches long. She also received a punctured wound on the side of the head. When picked up, the lady was quite unconscious, and the wound bled freely. She was taken into Mrs. Clarke's, and Dr. Munro, his son, and Dr. Lapage were sent for and attended. The accident occurred as the congregations were coming from the different places of worship, and the event naturally caused considerable excitement. Miss Garner was driving to Nantwich to meet her brother and sister who had been attending worship at the parish chureh. The horse the unfortunate lady was driving was one which had been purchased on approval the day before.
