TUESDAY,—Before the Mayor.








CORWEN. PENNY READINGS.—Another of these popular gatherings came off on Thursday last at the National Schoolrooms, under the presidency of Mr Evan James, solicitor. There was a full house, and a pleasant entertainment was en- joyed. After the usual vote of thanks had been recorded to the chairman, the National Anthem closed the pro- ceedings. PENNY LECTURE.—Last night (Friday), at the British Schoolrooms, the fifth of this series came off. Mr Roberts, of Vrondderwen, occupied the chair. Mr O. Davies Hughes delivered a lecture upon "Education and the present time," which he skillfully dealt with. The Glanrafon choral party very pleasingly entertained the audience with several performances. Compliments to the chairman having been returned, the Welsh National Anthem terminated the proceedings. PETTY SESSIONS, FRIDAY (25th inst).—Before the Rev. J. Wynne (chairman), Captain Taylor, and W. Corbett Yale, Esq. Application-Mr Kemp, on behalf of a mining company near Meyarth, in Gwyddelwem parish, applied for a summons against the overseers of the highway in that dis- trict for not repairing the road from Meyarth Mill, lead- ing to Tyddyniles, in- the parish of Gwyddelwern.— Application granted. The Cwm Road. -There was a summons issued for not repairing a road in this locality, which leads over the mountain to Llanarmon, but before they could decide the matter the Bench thought a practical man had better view and report upon the state of the road, and the case was accordingly adjourned for a fortnight. A Desperate Customer.—John Evans, single, forty years of age, a farmer residing at London-road in this town, was brought before their worships under the following cir- cumstances. It appeared Evans is accustomed to fits of epilepsy, and when these are on he is most violent. Recently he was suffering under one of these fits, and committed most desperate acts at his home, and their worships now considered whether it was their duty to send him to an asylum. Evans made a rational explanation to their worships, and sensibly replied to several questions.— Dr Jones, wno had been attending him for the last six years, was called, and said Evans suffered from epileptic fits—and while under them was at times really mad, and would continue soforsomedays. He had these ifts monthly, and witness should say that during that time he was a fit person for restraint. There were no premonitory symp- toms, and while under them he suffers from mental aberration he is worse now than he was six years ago.— (Our parcel had to leave before their worships decided upon the case; but, for an interval in the sitting of the Court, he was allowed to go home with his mother, with whom he now lives). There were a few other matters dealt with, but of no public interest.
