Flintshire Assizes. 'I JUDGE'S CONGRATULATION. These Assizss were held at Mol on Saturday, before Mr Justice Busknill. Colonel Davies-Cooke, of Colomendy, was foreman of the grand jury. Occupying seats on the Bench were the High Sheriff (Mr J. Lloyd-Price, of Holywell), the Rev. J. W. Thomas, vicar of Holywell (Sherig'is ohaplain), and Mr H. A. Cope, Holywell (Under Sheriff). The High Sheriff wore his uniform as a Major of the Flintshire Volunteers. There were only three oases, and his lordship congratulated the grand j ary on thesmall amount of work to oome before them. True bills were returned in all the cases. THEFT PROlE A 's WOD SAKABITAV." Herbert Griffith* (28), hawker, was charged with stealing a black olotu ooat, the property of James Jones, at Bsckley. Mr T. H. Parry appealed for the prosecution. The proseoutor took the prisoner home, and gave him some dinner, a d allowed him to wash himself. The prisoner, on leaving took away a ooat and after- wards sold it for 3d.—The prisoner pleaded that he was in,drink and did not remember anything about it. His Lordship urged the prisoner to give np the habit of drLking. Oonld he not take a glass or two and then retrain from taking more? Drink was intended as a pleasure, and not that people should make beasts of themselves. When a man was drank, and so drunk that he remembered nothing, he fell very low down in the scale. The rtisoner had been ia gaol for a fortnight awaiting bis trial, and would now be sent to prison for a further term of two weeks. A BKRVANT'Q DOWBJKALL.
