MOLD THE PROPOSED REMOVAL OF THE Assizis.With regard to the proposed amalgamation of the counties of North Wales for Assize purposes, we are given to understand that a reply has been received from the Lord Chancellor to the effect that he is unac- quainted with the proposal, and that if such a proposal were made it would have to be submitted to both Houses of Parliament before it could come into effect, so that plenty of time for its discussion would be afforded. ARCHIDIACONAL VISITATIO. The Ven. Arch- deacon Smart paid his annual visitation to St. Mary's Church, Mold, on Saturday last, and ad- mitted the recently appointed churchwardens to office. There was a large attendance of clergy from various parts of the diocese including—Rev. Rowland Ellis, Mold; Rev. Stephen Gladstone, Hawarden; Rev. Trotter, ditto; Rev. R. 0. Williams, Holywell; Rev.

SOCIAL GATHERING.—OR Friday, in last week, a most pleasant re-union was held in the school- room, Westminster-road, in connection with the "Pioneer" Lodge of Good Templars. Refresh- ments were provided by Mrs. Williams, Misses Ellis, Morgans, and others, and evidently were much enjoyed. Afterwards the chair was taken by the Rev. Thomas Roberts, who with Mr. John Griffiths and Mr. Herbert Williams, delivered addresses, in which kindly reference was made to the return in October last of the Rev. D. B. Hooke and Mrs. Hooke to North Wales. Mr. Hooke replied at length, and spoke of his and Mrs. Hooke's connec- tion with the lodge at Mold. They had been able to re-start very successfully the English lodge at Rhyl, and he cordially invited the Mold members to visit them at Rhyl during the summer, promising them a most hearty welcome a-1 offer, which we need hardly say, was cordially accepted. Mr. T. P. Adams gave an excellent solo on the pianoforte, and songs were sung by Messrs. S. Parry, H. Williams and Bellis. After the usual yotes of thanks, the meeting closed with prayer and praise. NORTH WALES CONGRKGATIONAL UNION—FLINT- sHiitF DISTRICT.—The quarterly meeting of the English Congregational Union of Flintshire was (as reported in our last) held at Mold on Wednes- day week. The Rev. Owen Thomas, M.A. (Holy- well), chairman of the district, presided. Ministers and delegates attended from Rhyl, Flint, Mold, Bagillt, Mostyn, Holywell, and other places. After devotional exercises conducted by Rev. Thos. Lloyd (Colwyn Bay), the minutes of Rhyl session were read and confirmed. It was agreed to hold the next meeting at Bagillt or Flint, in the last week of C, June, and the Rev. D. B Hooke was asked to read a paper on The Church in its relationship to popular recreations." A report was presented as to the progress being made by the recently formed Choral Union, and it was agreed to alter the date of the festival at Rhyl, from August to September, and to leave the exact date to the executive com- mittee, Reports as to local Sunday school exam- inations having been given, attention was called to the omission of Wales from the proposed examina- tion of young people in Scriptural knowledge by the committee of the Congregational Union of England and Wales. It was agreed to ask the attention of the North Wales Union Executive to the same, with a view to secure the inclusion of Wales in the scheme. Subsequently a thoughtful and suggestive paper was read by the chairman on Belief and Conduct," for which thanks were tendered. Later friends were entertained in the schoolroom, and at night a sermon was preached by the Rev. W. S. Rees, Flint. PETTY SESSIONS: MONDAY. Before B. P. Davies Cooke (in the chair), P. A. Lloyd, E. Thompson, and W. Thom, Esqrs. PUNISHING AN INFORilEB John Gallagher, of Mold, (a native of the Emerald Isle who spoke with a strong Irish accent), charged T. Dalton, tanner, also of Mold, with assault- ing him on the night of the 21st ult. Complainant stated that he had been speaking to P.C. William Williams near the Cross when defendant, who was drunk, called him an "informer" and struck him twice, accusing him of being a spy for the police. Defendant called a witness who stated he did not see Dalton strike the complainant, but admitted he was not present at the commencement of the row. Their Worships considering the assault proved, fined defandant 5s and costs or fourteen days' imprisonment in default of distress. A PUBLIC HOUSE ROW. James Turner, collier, eldest son of the landlord of the Upper Vaults, summoned Thomas Evans, of Rhydygoleu, labourer, for assaulting him on the 14th ult. by striking him. David Davies, furnace- man, hailing from the same locality, was also summoned by William Turner, a brother of the first complainant, for a similar assault committed on the same date. Margaret Whitley, a widow, of Milford-street, was also charged by Elizabeth Turner, the mother of the above complainants, with assaulting her on the same occasion. From the evidence given, it appears that a quarrel, which took place outside the Upper Vaults (when the sons of the landlord were challenged to fight certain persons in the crowd) ended in a scene of general confusion, and during the melee the defendants committed the assaults complained of. Numbers of witnesses were called on either side, and after a protracted hearing the defendants were eventually fined Is. with costs, or seven days' each in default of payment. AN UNFAITHFUL SERVANT. Alfred Jones, aged 10, was charged on remand with stealing the sum of Is. 3d. belonging to his employer, Mr. Geerge Povall, of Salfcney, farmer. Jane Povall, daughter of the prosecutor, stated that the prisoner was a servant in the employ of her father, and resided with them as a member of the family. On the 30th of March last she placed five threepenny pieces and Is. belonging to her father in a box, which was in a drawer in the kitchen which the prisoner had access to. During the week three of the threepenny bits were taken, and on the following Sunday the remaining two disappeared. She questioned prisoner about it but he denied all knowledge of the theft. Enquiries having been 9 made, it was ascertained that the prisoner had told a friend, pamed Jair.<\s Morrow about it, who also gave evidence stating .thst prisoner said, "For goodness sake don't tell,. but I found a card box in the drawer and there was a threepenny bit in it, and I took it as they had not said anything about the other."—The prisoner, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced to one calendar month's imprisonment, with hard labour.
