In defence the defendant called Hensbav to prow that no such conversation took place in the inn. His Honour, in suiaarhiy up the case, called atten,ion to the fact that since the prssing of trie Friendly Societies Act in 1873, &c., it waa necessary to obtain a certificate of death under the hand or the registrar, and of course the certificate,of death by the coroner in such eiLcumsiiuices was oi no use. Air. Thelwaii had not, so far as the evidence before him went, guaranteed the eiiicacy of his certificate, and therefore he would give judgment in favour of defendant. DAMAGES TO LAND. Ilobcri TViUiciMis, Elizabeth, RobcrU, JVm. Roberts, Ben. jamin iioOerti;, John Andrew, David Evans, and Absidcr.i Daeies- were all sued for damage done to land in the occupation of the Westminster Colliery Company, and situate in Poolmouth. The damages were estimated at £ 11. Mr. E. Swetenham, barrister, instructed by Mr. 6. C. Owen, Wrexham, appeared for the plaiptitfs, and Mr. T. Gold Edwards, af itutiiin, appeared for the defendants. The damages were laid by the company against the various defendants for trespasses upon the land in question at various times. The property had been bought by the company for their own purposes for i'60 from Ilr. Evans, of Manchester, the owner of the land, for whom the rents wore collected by Mr. Daven- port, of Wrexham. Mr. Swetenham, in concluding his opening remarks, said the company had. no wish to act oppressively against the defendants, but w-ere merely defending their own rights. The defence set up was, as in former case in reference to this land, a plefc of the Statute of Limitations OIl the ground that there had been undisturbed possession for a considerable time. His Honour gave judgment for the plaintiffs with costs, and damages of £ 5. A \VAJRNING TO BOOK BUYERS. Mr. W. C. Aspinall was sued by the London Publish- iny Company for io the value of a work issued by them entitled Hogarth." Mr. James Smith of the company said that the order was given in July for the work in three volumes bound. These were sent as soon as possible but payment was refused. -Air. Ashton .Bradley who appeared for the defendant said a few days after the order had been given, Mr. Aspinall wrote a letter asking the company to cancel it but the letter although posted the same night failed to reach its destination until some days after. His Honor gave judgment for the defendant. MOTHER AND SON. Thomas Ralph, llhosddu, was sued by his mother Mrs. Ann Ralph for the value of a pony and cart the property of Mrs. Jhdph, but detained by the defendant. Mr. Ashton Bradley appeared for the plaintiff and Mr. She mitt for the defendant. hir. Bradley said that the plaintiff owned the pony and cart in question, but lent them to her son for pur- poses of business orj the condition that he would deliver them up or iend them when requested. This he refused entirely to do. Mr. Sherratt for the defence said that the defendant paid partly for the pony and cart and that it had been given to defendant by his mother. The Judge said he was sorry to see mother and son so situated and gave judgment to the plaintiff.
BOROUGH PETTY SESSIONS. MONDAY.—Before T. C. Jones and T. Painter, Esqrs. DOES DKUNKENNE8S JUSTIFY FELONY ? ( Edward William Davies, articled clerk to Mr. Sherratt, was charged with stealing a pmy, a bridle, and a saddle. Mr. Sherratt stated that on Wednesday last, about ten o'clock in the evening, bis stable contained a pony, ) saddle, and bridle. At eigiit o'clock 011 Thursday morning ( he was informed by his son that his pony had been stolen with the bridle and saddle. He told him to go at once to the police and give information, and to tell them that they were to take any measures they thought proper to recover the pony. Shortly after that Mr. Sergeant Jones and another omcer called upon him, and after they had conferred together it was arranged that they should issue a police notice, which was im- mediately got out, and the police (especially Sergeant .iones) showed great ability in doing what they had- done. About one o'clock on Friday he understood that the pony was found, and on Saturday evening he received it with the bridle and saddle all uninjured. The defendant was an articled pupil of his, and he was a very respectable young man, and his mother was a very respectable lady. The police had had the case in their hands, and he could not well withdraw without the consent of the bench. The Chairman (to defendant): Mr. Sherratt has said nothing at present to connect you with the case. Will you ask him any questions ? Defendant: Oil, no, thanks. Superintendent Wilde stated that on Thursday morning last Sergeant Jones came to him and said he had received information from Mr. Sherratt about a pony. He ordered Jones to make further enquiries. Shortly afterwards suspicion was attached to the prisoner, and he (witness) having known him from a boy was rather reluctant to proceed, and thought the pony watu taken for a spree. After a time some hand- bills were drawn out and sent to him, of which lie did not approve. Later in the day, as nothing had been heard of the pony, Mr. Sherratt pressed him to proceed. He sent to Mr. Sherratt stating what his suspicions were, and asking if he would proceed against him, or anyone else, who might be apprehended. Mr. Sherratt replied, that he had not given anyone authority to take the pony, and he would certainly proceed against any person. Witness then wrote out several letters and sent them off. Soon after a telegram was received saying that the pony and the prisoner were in charge of the police at Denbigh. He had heard the defendant had been on a drunken spree, and he believed he had taken the pony as a drunken freak. The Chairman (to defendant): Do you wish to ask Mr. Wilde any questions? Defendant No, none, thanks. Sergeant Jones was then called, and stated that on Mr. Wilde any questions? Defendant No, none, thanks. Sergeant Jones was then called, and stated that on Thursday morning he received information from Mr. ( Sherratt that somebody had stolen his pony. He went to Mr. Sherratt, in the company of Mr. M'Cloud, and they viewed the premises. In the course of further evidence, the Sergt. stated the details of what he saw and heard, &c. Continuing, lie stated that eventually he received orders from the Superintendent to proceed to Chester in search of the defendant, but, before he started, a telegram was received from Denbigh, and he proceeded there instead. When he apprehended the defendant lie replied, in answer to the charge, that he had no intention whatever of stealing the pony, that he had been drunk, and that he did not know what he had been doing. The defendant added that he heard that the defendant slept on the back of the pony, and when he awoke he found himself in Ruthin. (Laughter). Mr. Painter He was not asleep when he opened the stable dour. The Clork (to defendant) Do you wish to put any questions ? Defendant: No accept that I had not the slightest fleet of being in the office on the Wednesday evening. The Chairman Very great pity. Y The Clerk (to Mr. Sherratt): Is defendant still in your employ ? Mr. Sherratt Yes, and I hope he will be with me again to-day. His mother paid me a good stiff premium with him. If he had only telegraphed that he had the pony it would have been all right. I had not the slightest idea who had the pony, and after it was in the hands of the police of course I could not withdraw. I have not the slightest word to say against him, and I believe he had no intention of stealing the pony. I have no wish to prosecute nor to be here this morning. Sergeant Jones Everybody in Denbigh was very sorry for this young gentleman, and none believed that he had any intention of stealing the pony. Mr. Sherratt: The question would be whether there was any felonious intent. I should certainly say not. The Chairman: But then you see he acknowledges 'Jel, here that he did not know what he was doing. Is his mother a widow ? Mr. Sherratt: Yes, and she is a woman of good position. Mr. Painter: Would you wish to withdraw in this matter ? Mr. Sherratt: Oh, yes, certainly I would. Mr. Painter We can quite understand that he had 4- no intention of stealing it. It is a most unfortunate affair. il ie (. hairmrn; addressing the defendant, s id he ..i/Or.d CJ< rgei' with a very serious crime, and formerly it wa« considered more so even t'fui r>ow, and he was VH- y sory to -v.e •>.■« :>. a resiecteble y 'ting man. the son f uy vi'- ••!>?« la !y, in such a. po(dfci..n as he ;■ >v_ v.: h o •"> or 1!■ he aau r a g od e:ample in his mother, and a re it .oself lie w -.s very «! rry to see hi :a in srch iio^ .tioi. jfcie ha ated ,11.1"elf, .w,t he did not know wu.a ae v.r-. d -0, a-io after the education he had leoeive ?a>. e >owers C-od hail given him, if he we 'al pursue course a > had be ,an he knew where ic "i." ) eii. y. f un Mr. T.herratt that he |-ad no feViduus indent, a intended io act rooa ••, >yi. -»e I was r1:. i -,ible.

CTTUELTY TO FOWLS. d EU¡g, Kinrs Mills, was charged by Inspector Lucking; of the S.P.U.with cruelty to tnree couple of :wis on the 28th instant. j.ne xnspeecor stated that on the 2Sth inst., about half-pa; t twelve he was in the poultry market, and there saw defendant's wife in charge of six fowls. He examined them, and Lund that their legs were tied with le very thin string, and it was cutting into the flesh. The "inds were bleeding, and the legs very much nrbirne d. Defendant .said A!iat the legs ware not cut by the spring, but were wounded in fightmg. He had bought some fowls at Worthenbury, and their legs were tied wio.u strips of cadco, but the strips broke, and he had to tie the legs with any string he could get. If the case could be aJjourned lie would be able to bring up witnesses. The prosecutor said he should object to the adjourn- ment, unless the defendant paid its expenses. Eventually the bench fined him 20s. and costs. In paying the fine the defendant said It is a very nice way of getting money, but thank God I can pay it. It is genteel begging." ABUSING A DONKEY. John Williams, Penybryn. was summoned by the same Inspector for cruelty to a donkey. The Inspector said on the 13th inst., about half-past two o'clock, he was in Rhosddu-lane, when he saw tfc3 defendant driving a grey donkey. He had a heavy stick in his hand, with which he was heating the poor donkey most unmercifully. Witness went to him, and taking the stick from him broke it in pieces, threaten- ing him with imprisonment if he was seen abusing it again. Soon after this, from information he received, witnesji went to Lorne-street, and there saw the defen- dant again thrashing the donkey very heavily with a fresh stick. He was hitting it across the back and legs. Deiendant, who denied the offence, was fined 2s. Gd. and costs. ABUSIVE LANG UAG E. Bridget McCormkk, Yorke-street, was summoned by Jane Williams, of the same place, for using abusive language towards her. The difference was caused by a transaction in herrings, during which the freshness of defendant's stock was called in question. There was a cross-summons, which, after a very patient hearing, was dismissed. In the former case, the defendant, Mrs. McCormick, was fined 2s. 6d. and costs. There was a similar case between airs. Harriet Davies and Mrs. Septimus Phoenix, both of Market-street, ,er hearing complainant's evidence, the case was settled on defendant paying the costs of the summons. DHUNK, &C. John Williams, labourer, was charged by P.C. Fred. Jones with being drunk on the previous Saturday m-dit m Bridge-street. Defendant was very drunk and be- having in a very riotous manner. Defendant said, he was looking for work. The Chairman said that the case would be dismissed and recommended him not to get another day's work irom the hard master who had got him into that troufjlo. THE AL;,JO[JE!NED CASE OF DAVIES V. PARRY. Henrv Parry appeared in answer'to the charge pre- ferrea by Mr. T. F. Davies, hair dresser, Hope-street, for a breacn of his indentures. Mr Davies said he would only press for costs and would suppress the question of damages altogether. He would be very glad if the Bench would cancel the in- dentures. Defendant had worked for him all the week but did all his work very slowly. Mr. Charles Hughes had frightened him on the previous court day by threa- tening him with imprisonment, but witness was afraid the defendant would be as bad as ever after the case was settled. The Bench, after a little time, cancelled the inden- tures and ordered the defendant to pay the costs of the case, at the same time complainant was to pay all wages owing to the defendant.

EXCELSIOR V WELSHPOOL.—The Excelsior Football Club made their debfit on Saturday last at Welshpool Their oponents were the Pool Football Club whom it is believed intend joining the Welsh Football Association this season for the first time. Both teams were the chosen of their respective clubs and would have done much. more credit both to themselves and the clubs they represented had it not been for the very grassy state of the ground which precluded any possibility of fine play However, what was lacking in dribbling was fully com- pensated by the hard work of all the men, who each did their best to declare their own team the victors. During the first part of the game no goal was scored but on change of ends with an additional effort on the part of the home team they managed to obtain a hard- earned goal.

GWERSYLIIT. INSTRUMENTAL CONCERTS.—The lovers of music in this district.. were afforded a r;:re and varied treat on the occasion of two grand instrumental coacer's of selections from the old masters, in the Nation I School, on Thursday afternoon and evening,.in aid ,ill "Ila of the-fund for enlargiog Cross-sr-reet School and Mission Room, for which a sum of £ 200 is required. Respecting the object in view it may be remarked that the room, which was built by subscription in 1870, is situated in the midst of a large and in- creasing mining population, and owing to the ia ternst and zeal manifested in the work by the Misses Irvec, Oak Alyn, it has become too small and enlargement is exnedient, a special and excellent feature being the large adult Sunday class, one of the largest in Wales, attended by upwards of '70 men, and conducted by Miss Irven, much good having been achieved through its instrumentality. The orchestra, which presented a pretty sight, was draped with crimson, and decorated with flowers of variegated foliago, kindly supplied by J. Sparrow, Esq., Gwersyllt Hill. Thj afhernoon concert com- menced at 2.33, and was undoubtedly a success, being attended by the nobility and gentry of the district, the reserved seats being quite full. All the artistes were ladies and gentlemen amateurs of well known repute; the string band, accompanied bypiancforte and harmonium, being composed of Mr. Nicholson, Hereford Dr. Smith, Hereford; Mr. R. Price, Cardiff; Rev. E. B. Smith, rector of Llandrinio; Mr. *R. Percy James, Plas Acton, Gwersyllt; Mr. Pntchard, organise, St. Mark's, Wrexham Mr. T. Reginald James, Plas Acton, Gwersyilt; Miss James, Plas Acton; Miss Smith, Llandrinio and Mrs. George Irven. The success of the cone-rt is mainly due to Ihe Rev. E. B. Smith, late vicar of Gwersyllt and rector of Llandrinio, who had kindly undertaken to invite the artistes and supply the programme, the general management devolving upon the Rev. G. Williams, curate cf Gwersyilt, who displayed considerable energy and tact in the matter. The programme, which was a most excel- lent one, had been skilfully arranged, and too much praise in the highest terms cannot be given to the band for its admirable and talented renderings of the various masterpieces selected, their ser/ices being well appreciated and much applauded, at times overwhelmingly. The first part opined wi h an overture, Samson (Handel), by the full band, accompanied by piano and harmonium, and most effectively rendered; song, True till death" (Gatty), was feelingly given by the Rev. W. L. Martin, Bettisfield solo clarionet, Melodie des Alpes" (Barret), by Mr. R. Percy James, was a treat but seldom obtained, being skilfully rendered and received much vocal trio, Perflda Glori (Cherubini), by Miss E Irven, Rev. W. L. Martin, and Mr. T. R. James, was given with taste; solo Dianoforte," Contre Danse (Cotsford Dick), .)4- by Mrs. Geo. Irven, was short, but sweetly rendered instrumental quartette (Mozart), by Rev. E. B. Smith, Mr. Nicholson, Dr. Smith, and Mr. R. Price, was substituted for a ballad. "Liith: N al," by Mr. Price trio, (violin, vioiincello, and pianoforte) from Mozart, by Miss Smith, Rev. E. B. Smith, and Mr. Nicholson was well given; song, "Man the life- boat," (Russell) by the Rev. J. Jenkins, was finely rendered, with much pathos and feeli ig, and receiving a well deserved encore. He afterwards gave with equal accomplishment The sexton instru- mental quarteit, M.S. arrangement from organ solo, Holsworthy bells," (Wesley) was given by the Rev. C. B. Smith, Dr. Smith, Mr. Nicholson, and Mr. R. Price in rich and quiet beauty and well applauded. The second part opened with an instrumental trio (part of Nr. 1) Beethoven, by Mrs. George Irven, Rev. E. B. Smith, and Mr. Nicholson, and was loudly encored and gracefully complied with; song, By Ceiia's arbour," (Men- delsshon) by Miss E. Irvcn, receiving an encore, and afterwards gave A German air;" solo violin, "Home sweat heme" with variations, (C. de Berisc) by Mr. Nicholson, was truly wonderful, being rendered in a manner scarcely to be surpassed, and was rapturously encored vooal duet. Excelsior," by Miss C. Irven and Mr P. R. James obtained a well earned encore; solo, piano, Rondo Capriccioso," (Weber) by Miss James receive ? '). tine and skillful rendering, and establishes MÍfs Jam s as an artiste; song, "Arm, arm ye brave," (Handel) by Mr. T. R. Jan-.es, with band accompaniment, was rendered effectively and in masterly style, and was loudly encored; instrumental quartett, "Melodic Rdligi- euse," (Berthold Tours) by Rev. E. B. Smith, Dr. Smith, Mr. Nicholson, and Mr. R. Price was very finely rendered; song, "A thousand a year," (Millard) '71 by R:v. W. L. Martin, was well given and received an encore; overture, "Tancredi" (Rossini), by the full band, accompanied with the piano and har- monium, was a treat but seldom enjoyed, being exquisitely rendered, and received an outburst of applause. The National Anthem terminated a very- high class and weli arranged programme. The programme was, with some little deviation, re- peated in the evening to a large and highly re spectable audience, the room being well filled, the admission only being by tickets at 2s. 6d. and Is. each. The various accompaniments were given by Mrs. G. Irven, Miss Smith, Miss James, Dr. Smith, and Mr. Pritchard, organist, St. Mark's, Wrexham, who each performed their part with considerable skill and taste, Mr. Pritchard being highly ap- preciated. At the conclusion of the evening's per- formance. Mr. John James, Plas Acton, moved a hearty vote of thanks to the ladies and gentlemen for the admirable manner in which they had enter- tained them, at the same time complimenting the talent and skill they had displayed, and which had been so highly appreciated and enjoyed, and trusted that ere long a similar treat would be enjoyed, and that those who had so kindly given teem their services now would do so for the purpose of obtaining a new organ for the church instead of the somewhat buzzing harmonium, and he was sure they would, in the appeal, meet with a hearty response. The Rev. E. B.

The hsts were pasreu, no one objecting. RIOTOUS CONDUCT. Edward & ram and John Jdnes, Cefn Bychan, ■ere charged by P.C. Dohson, ,ibll fighting on tus Cta inst. at the Cefn. Defendants were bound over to keep the peace for six months in £ 10 each. ASSAULTS. John Jones, one of the defendants in the last case, charged an old man named Thomas Jones with assault- ing him. After the fight referred to in the last case was over defendant came to complainant and struck him on the breast. The Bench dismissed the ease. Joscpa Roberts, Ponkey, was summoned by his sister, Margarei, Hannerby, of the same price, for having assaulted her by seizing her by the throat. The assault was caused by obstructing a path belonging to the com- plainant, which had been tae cause of some civil action. The Bench ^thought it was a case for the Conntv Court and accordingly diraiissed it. OFFENCE AGAINST THE LICENSING LAWS. David Roberts, landlord of the Grapes, Cefn, and Samuel Carlmriyht, labourer, were charged the first with permitting drunkenness and the latter wi-Ji being- drunk on licensed premises. P.C. Roberts said on the 13th inst. he was on duly near the Grapes and heard a great noise proceeding therefrom. On going in he saw defendant Cartwright with a jug ot beer before him out of which he was drinking. Defendant was so drunk as to require the support of a woman. He called the attention of Mrs. Roberts to it and she sent defendant out. P.C. Dobson gave corroborative evidence. Mr. Sherratt, for the defence, said he hoped to be able to prove that the police had been mistaken. Cart- wright came in to see his son-in-law, who asked him to drhïk" He did so, but was only market fresh." Mrs. Roberts then gave evidence. She said defendant came in and said to him" You had better go you have had enough," but he reiused to g), and sat down for a short time. .The Chairman found Cartwright guilty, and fined him 2s. tid. and costs, and the other case was dismissed. STEALING A COAT. Noah Edwards, it boy, was charged with stealing a oat, the property of D. Rogers, gardener at the lua- bon Vicarage. David Rogers, the owner of the coat, said a few weeks ago he put it on a seat on the lawn of the Vicarage, Ruabol1. It was placed there about seven o'clock in the evening, and it was missed shortly after. P.S. Jones said he saw the defendant's father, who said his ton found the coat (produced) on the road. H.? found prisoner hiding under the stairs he got him out and charged him with the theft. Prisoner replied. "Yes, I have taken i, azid ii,ve given the book and handkerchief to a little boy." The mother of the defendant said her boy had tnhl t her that he had found the coat on the road. The boy also denied having confessed co the theft. P.C. Dobson said the prisoner conf esse a voluntarily to the theft. The Prosecutor said he did not wish to press the case. The Chairman said the case was proved against defendant. He would be sent to prison for one week with hard labour, they were very sorry to have to send so young child to prison. RATE CASES. Sergt.-Major Meldrum, of the Llangollen troop of the Denbighshire Hussars, was summoned by the overseers of Ruabon parish for non-payment of poor rates. Mr. Powell, of Wrexham, appeared for the defence, and pleaded excemption on the ground that defendant was using his house as a military stores, having in it the accoutrements of his troop. The Bench adjourned the case until next court. There were a large number of cases of rates, in most of which orders were granted by the magistrates. ROBBERY OF SLATES AND LATHS. Edward Roberts, slater, of Cefn, was charged by Mr. George Brown, of Holly Bank, with stealing a quantity of laths and slates, valued at 4s., on the 3rd of September. Evidence was taken of the sale having been effected to Mrs. Horton, whose houses defendant was slating. The magistrates committed the defendant for 21 days hard labour, at the same time reprimanding Mrs. Horton for purchasing the materials. ALLEGED MALICIOUS DAMAGE. Eran Evans, stonemason, was charged by Mr" Roberts, of Cefn, with having broken a winLlow valued at 10s. Defendant said that he had not received his wages and broke the window in a fit of temper. The Bench recommended the case to be settled amicably which was done. I
ST. ASAPH. a A DBUNKSN TAILOR.—Oa Thursday, before Major Birch, a man was brought up named Robert Bell, who sud he was a native of Scotland. He had worked as a tailor at Wrexnam for eleven years, but been on tramp since. Ho called at the police- station on Wednesday night in a drunken state, and declared that he had not a p<nnv in the world and that he was not in drink. He was, however, so far gone that he tell backwards. On being examined., 3s. 2|d. was found upon him. He admitted to the magistrate that he was so drur.k he knew nothing. Committed to gaol for seven days' hard labour. BOARD OF GUARDIANS. THURSDAY.—Present: Mr. W. B. Wynne, chairman Mr. P. Wynne Yorke, Mr. T. G. Dixon, Captain P. P. Pennant, Major Conwy, Messrs. T. Sleight, Robert Davies, John Knowles, W. H. Foulkes, W. Bell, T. Matthews, W. M. Clarke, E. Powell Jones, Joseph Lloyd, H. Cleaver, E. Vaughan, T. Howatson, Edwin Morgan, J. Kerfoot, J. Jones, and Rev. W. E. Jones. STATISTICS. In the house 117, against llG; Vagrants relieved dur- ing the fortnight, 118. DEPLORABLE CONDITION OF A SAILOR. It was stated that a sailor was found lying in the middle of the road at Rhuddlan, apparently in a dying state, and was removed to the house. Through the exertions and attentions bestowed on the case by the doctor and master and matron of the house the man was recovering, and had told them that he broke down for want of food, and that he could not beg. CHILDREN'S TREAT. Votes of thanks were given to Mrs. Williams Wynn, Cefn and Major and Mrs. Conwy, for their kind treats to the children and inmates of the house. ELECTION OF NURSE. There were three applications for the office of nurse, the election having been postponed from last illeeting. The applicants were Jones, Clwyd-street, Ruthin Catherine Jones, 102, Henllan-street, Denbigh and a person from Yv est Derby-road, Liverpool. Both the former were before the board, and Catherine Jones, Denbigh, produced testimonials as to her Sitness for the office and to act as midwife from Dr. Evan Pierce, of Denbigh. Mr. R. DAVIES, Denbigh, proposed Catherine Jones. Captain PENNANT proposed Mrs. Mary Jones, Ruthin, who appeared a far more likely person to make a good nurse. Mr. E. POWELL JONES seconded, and she Was elected by twelve votes against seven given for the Denbigh woman. Mary Jones was called in, and told she was elected, subject to producing some testimonials as to character and fitness. A QUEER FELLOW. William Thomas, St. Asaph, "the eccentric letter writer," who recently brought an unfounded charge against Dr. Lodge of neglect, had sent a long and comical letter to the Local Government Board on the subject, anijl the neglect of the Board to fully investigate the case. The letter caused great amusement, and the clerk was ultimately requested to write to the Board, and say that the case was fully inquired into, and the charge found to be clearly unfounded. MR. YORKE ATTACKS THE ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE. Mr. WYNNE YORKE, in his characteristic way, said he had a serious complaint to make in reference to what he considered the unfair assessment of the parishes, for whilst 12 were continued on the lower basis 4 had been placed on a higher basis. He had written up to the Local Government Board on the subject, and had the reply in his pocket, and it would be a dose for them. Why did they not. begin to raise the assessments of the most populous parishes first ? Why was not St. Asaph put up before Llansannan? He was not a fool, he had some sense—(laughter and applause)—and lie knew that St. Asaph was more populous than Llansannan. Why did not the committee attack the "fat kine" living at .P- St. Asaph under the "hadow of the Ecde«iastical Com- missioners. (Laughter).

It was, however, taut on behalf of nimsslf and the committee he shmld explain that some years ago, in consequence of property ravmggone up, it was neces ar.v to revise the ust tor he parish Ox .aiLldlan, and it bcciiine necessary to call ior a fresh list more particularly with regard to tne town of Rhyl; but there was not the slightest in- tention then of putting the rmion upon any new 1).1sis. They mate a great addition to the a;,se3mrnt of that parisa. (Applause). This having beea done, it was suggested by one of the Guardians (Mr., E. p, Jones) tha they should turn their attention to Denbi'di. That was aone. bo they went on, and the committee having gone so far feit that the,-were called upon to go through the .union, ^ppiar.se;.

(Applause and laughter). He knew that cases of that kind existed there such as did not exist in any other parish in tne union, hence his recommendation for the new assessment. (Hear, hear). He went on to show that tne committee were working at it and taking the parishes, but this work was thrown upon them in a great me.iSuie because some of the overseers did not send m as they ought to do from time to time supple- mental i8t,.

He contended that an injustice voiild have been Gone if they had not raised parishes where property had gone up so much. (Applause). YORKE said he had written to the Local G ivermnent Board, and read a letter in reprr (which was said not to apray to what the committee had done), and he went on to assure the Board, and the Chairman in particular, that they had net a leg to stand upon. They may laugh at him, but they may laugh the other hefr) mouths SGme (Laughterg and hear, Mr. CLA-SE thought it would have been le tter if all the pansaes aad ,jten gone through before any addition had been made to the rates of the union.

Captain 1 ENNANT tnought the parish es thev had • picreei out were really those that wcie asse-sed below tneir proper value -(applause)—and in the parishes yet undone the increase would not be very grcat- (hear, hear)-because there the overseers had con- tinually sent supplemental lists. He assorted that there had not been the slightest favour shown, but those parisnes had been done which required doing the worst— (hear, hear)—but he may remark: that the parishes in suture would be selected by means of a paper bearing tire names being^ drawn out of a hag. "l^i" Asaph' and Mr. DAVIES, Denbigh, urged that the action of the committee had been the best taat could be adopted. This seemed to be almost the general feeling of the Board, and the subject dropped.

In its l-.st issue I notice the following :—" On Thnrsday, Lady Theocio;.e Guest, the wife of Sir Ivor Guels, and sister of the Duke of Westminster, was safely de- livered of a daughter at Motonnbe House, Shaftes fcury." Now, Lady Theodore Gu st is not the wife j of Sir Ivor. He married a daughter of the Dllke, of Iri'i-iborou £ 'h. The Duke's sister married a brother of Sir Ivor—Mr. Merthyr Guest. There are, as a rule, a number of cases of dmnken- nt-ss before the Wrexham Magistrates, an->. nearly everv case there are circumstances of extenuation or r.-i vqt ioL,. To inflict the same amount of punishment in every case would not be just, and what is wanted is a classification of the ores and a certain fine attached to each. But who will classify them ? The Bench have not done such, nor has Mr. Gcueh, nor hss the teetotal societies, and par- taps the reason of this is that the work would be very difficult. Geo. Gascoigne, in a treatise on drunkards, puts them all in one category. He says All drunkards are beasts." Perhaps so, but the great- satirist, has given them a wider category, and in the hope that it will assist the I rates and it might be, Mr. Go ugh and the rant and file of temperance orators, I will reproduce 1-1 taking upon myself to make a few verbal alterations. N:ah says: "The first is ape-drunk, and he and sinap, and hollows, and danceth for the heavens; the second is lvon-drunk, and he flings the pots about the house, calls the hostess names, breaks the glass windows with his fists, and is ap to quarrel with any man that speaks to him; the third is swine-drunk, heavy, lumpish, and sleepy, and cries for a little more drink and a few more ciothcg; the fcuith is sheep-drunk, wise in his own conce-'t when h- cannot bring forth a right word; the fifth ;s mandlen-drunk, when a fellow will weep for kind- ness in the midst of his drink, and kiss you, saying "By Jove, Captain, I love thee; go thy ways; thou dost not think so often of me as I do o ■ thee I would I could not love thee so well as I do," an I then he puts his finger in his eye and cri??; the sixth is martin-drunk, when a man is drunk, and he drinks himself sober ere he stir; the seventh is goat-drunk, when in his drunkenness he hath no mind but on wickedness; the eighth is fox drunk, when he is crafty drunk as many of the Dutchmen be, who will never bargain but when they are drunk." This classification might prove of use, ard to those to whom it is so, they are welcome. Whilst talking of drunkards, Mr. Gough toVI some very amusing tales the other evening in regard to this numerous company of gentlemen, but had he seen a little episode in the lives of two such the other evening he might have told it in his a I inimitable manner with very much success. They were portly gentlemen, and their nerves were at so high a temperament, or something of that sort, that they could not stand still. At first their words and voices were somewhat high also, but, as the law of compensation appears in almost everything, the 0n did rot understand what the other one was saying. This was fortunate, for if they had there would certainly have been eithfer a fight or a case of damages for slander. However, they were both conscions that hard words were being passed, and neither caring much about such, they mutually resolved to make it up." After a great effort and surpassing patience, they took hands, and, after assuring themselves that they had their friend's right hand, they proceeded to shake them. Friend- ship warmed with the grasp and qmckly sprouted into affection. Thpy decided that before they parted they would kiss. They separated their hands and, each pouting his lips and stretching his neck, they endeavoured to meet each other. The scene then began. Action and wonderful power of description is needed to tell what j followed. I leave it to Mr. Gough. Apropos to this subject but the more serious side of it. Drunkenness, like most other evils, might be checked very considerably by society reprohn cing- it. Such is not dore to the extent it might be. F.r instance. A young man in the course of what is spoken of in palliating terms as a drnnken spree," got into the hands of the police the other day. He was taken before the magistrates. Much: to the regret of all right thinking persons the plea, or excuse why he should escape punishment, was because he was drunk wh n he committed the alleged offence with which he was charged, and because he' was a highly respectable young man Yes, indeed, he must be As was remarked at the time, if such is respectability" then s: ve me from it!
