DENBIGH. HORTICULTURAL SHOW AT LLANDYRNOG.— Through the exertions of the rector of the parish, the Rev D. Williams, the first horticultural show was held in the village, on Thursday, for the pur- pose of promoting (by offering suitable prizes for competition) the study of horticulture amongst the villagers. It was hoped to make the show an annual one if Thursday's exhibition proved successful, but the weather was sufficiently unfavourable to bring failure to a much more e'aborate and important event. Particulars of the exhibition will be given next week. BOROUGH MAGISTRATES' COURT. FRIDAY.—Before the Mayor (T. J. Williams, Esq), Evan Pierce, J Parry-Jones, Thomas Evans, R LI. Williams, and J. W. Lloyd, Esqrs. CHARGE OF PERMITTING DRUXKENNESS.—Richard Jones, landlord of the Eagles Inn, was charged with allowing a drunken man to remain in his house at mid-day, on the 16th of August.— Sergeant Lewis said that he saw William Jones, of Henllan-street, very drunk and riotous in High-street. The man went in the direction of the Eagles Inn. He followed him there and found him with several others who were served with drink. When he was going into the house he saw Mrs Jones carrying drink into the room, and he cautioned her against serving Jones. He left the house, and the man was allewed to remain there a quarter of an hour afterwards, he not having been asked to turn him out.—Defendant said that the man who was in the house was a perron they never under any circumstances served with drink, and he and Mrs Jones asked him to go out many times hut he would not. He was one of those kind of characters that they did not like to be rough with, or he would soon damage the furniture, and behave otherwise badly. He did his best to get him out of the house as quickly as possible, and swore no drink was supplied to him. To prove this, defendant called John Roberts, Denbigh, and John Roberts, Tremeirchion, who both declared that Jones had no drink, and that defendant induced him to quit.—Sergeant Lewis said thb charge was not for supplying drink, but for permitting a drunken man to remain on the premises.—Defendant said he had kept the house ten years, and there had not been the slightest complaint against him or his house.—Superinten- dent Tudge saw the man in question (Wm. Jones) on the street soon after twelve that day, and he was very drunk. The man told him he had been working all night and had seven quarts of ale before seven o'clock that morning. Directly after Mr Chambres sent to the police station for men to lock the man up as he was drunk and disorderly in Henllan-street.—The Mayor, after a consultation in private, said they had carefully considered the case, and as defendant refused the man drink, they agreed to deal leniently with him, it being also the first charge against the house. The fine would be 5s. and costs, although they had power to fine him £10 and costs. The Bench blamed defendant for not having asked Sergeant Lewis to turn the man out.—Defendant said that the Sergeant left the house before he had the chance of doing so.

The sergeant said he saw defendant's cart and two horses standing at the Druid Inn. A man came by with a can on his head and frightened the first horse so that it turned round, and but for defendant rushing out of the Druid and catching the horse the animal would have gone away up the street. Soon after that he saw defendant leave the same horses and cart opposite the shop of Mr Hughes, bootmaker, for ten minutes without anyone in charge. He had difficulty in getting defendant's name, he refusing to tell it. Mr Hughes, shoemaker, was called to prove that the time the cart s ood opposite his shop was not many minutes, but he sld the cart was at his door when the cart came up Defendant was fined Is and costs, and cautioned as to j the dangerous nature of the offence.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— At the September meeting of the Town Council which takes place on Monday, the 14th inst., the important question of borrowing by loan from the Treasury the sum of from £3 000 to f6 000, to be expended on various works that have been sug- gested and brought forward at previous Council meetings, will take place. I may mention a few of them:—Drainage of the Town, Widening of Red Lane, and the adoption of other public roads that aro not now under the control of the boro' for repairs, &c, the erection of a fever hospital, apublic mortuary. These, and many other pioposals of a similar nature will, I believe, be made. Now, therefore, is the time for the ratepayers to fully consider this question and express their opinions thereon. They have now an opportunity of thoroughly considering the scheme before the Council t ike final action, and of stating whether they are in favour, or are against the expenditure about. to be incurred, and can give such suggestions as will enable the Council to carry out their wishes in the matter, and deal fairly with all the rate- payers of the Borough. With this view, I have ventured to remind those I represent that an opportunity occurs for them to state their wishes. I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, Yours obediently, JOHN LLOYD. Bull Hotel, Denbigh, August 31st, 1876. 319
