About 200 passengers were booked from Denbigh and 150 from Ruthm district. The return train reached Denbigh about 2.30 on Tuesday morning. There was a delay at Mold of abour half an hour by the break down of one of the engines. On Monday a goodly number of passengers were booked by the cheap return train to Chester and Liverpool. On Tuesday the bathers' excursion tickets to Rhyl at cheap rates ceased for the season. PRIZE DISTRIBUTION.—On Fridny last prizes were delivered to the scholars of the Board Schools who had attended a certain number of times and passed the examination of H.M. Inspector of Schools. These prizes were given as a means of encouraging the youngsters to future efforts. To the boys and girls suitable books were given, and to the infants at Vron Goch School, toys of various kinds. Those Scholars who had attained a state of proficiency gaining their free education also had the certificates presented to them. The Mayor and other members of the Board took part in the pro- ceedings. THE PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY.—The opening re- hersal of t.ne season took place on Tuesday evening at the Town Hall. Mr. F. C. Watkins resumed duty as conductor as energetically and painstaking as ever. Mr. John Jones has again given his most valuable services as accompanist. There was a good gathering of the members and the rehersal was a decided success, "The Creation" and "Elijah" being put in hand. The young people of the town should really avail themselves of the ad. vantages such a society offers. We hope the season will be successful, and that the public will soon have a. repitition of the splendid concerts previously given by the society. DEATH OF CAPTAIN PRICE.—Our readers will hear with great regret the death of Captain Price, of Llanrhaiadr Hall, near Denbigh, who died on Saturday last after a very painful illness extending over many months, during which time he was under the constant cave of Dr. A. E. Turner, of Denbigh. Deceased was formerly captain of the 15th regiment, with which he served in India and elsewhere. On the death of his father he suc- ceeded to the family estate at Llanrhaiadr. He was a magistrate for the county of Denbigh and in that capacity formerly often sat on the Beach at Denbigh. Deceased, who was related to several of the families in the district, has left a widow for whom the greatest sympathy is felt. The funeral was arranged to take place vesrerday at Lain- rhaiadr churchyard, particulars of which will be given next week. RAILWAY STOPPAGE.—On Wednesday, as the train due in Denbigh at 11.35 was proceeding from Rhuddlan up the steep near St. Asaph, the lines being slippery, the wheels of the engine refused to bite," and the train came to a stand. All efforts to get the engine to move only resulted in the wheels spinning round at a most rapid rate and as the tender was in front of the engine instead of behind, the sand box was not available in the ordinary way. A goodly number of the passengers walked tin into St. Asaph station, where, after some delay and some suitable means had been used, the train arrived. In Denbigh the train was nearly an hour late. Under such circumstances an old regulation, said to have been applied to one of the old fashioned conveyances, might very well have been put.in force, namely :—First class passengers to ride all the way; second class to walk up the hills and third class, when necessary, to not only walk but push behind." A NICE SORT OF A HUSBAND.—On Wednesday, at the Borough Police Court, before the Mayor, Alderman T. Gee, Capt. R. Lloyd Williams, and Mr. Thomas Evans, a man named William Roberts was brought up in custody charged with threatening his wife, who sought that he be bound over to keep the peace. The woman said that on Sept. 27th the defendant, who has been away, came to her house at the Castle, and greeted her with the words, « Well, d- She ordered him out. Defendant was drunk, and he kicked her about the legs, took hold of her hair and dragged her about, and in the struggle they fell together. She shouted murder," and the neighbours came to her rescue. After he was got out, he kicked the door and swore he would smash it and break her head. Defendant left her unprovided for, and she had to support herself and their live children, all she had received from him being 10s. in six months. He worked at Llanberis, and was in the habit of coming home and abusing her. He formerly worked in town, and obtained 18-=. weekly wages, but he kept 8s. weekly, and compelled her to keep the house on 10s., including his own keep. The magistrates denounced the fellow's conduct as most unmanly and brutal, and ordered him to be bound over to keep the peace for six months, himself in X10 and two sureties of X5 each. They told his wife thiit if he refused to keep her, she was to seek parish aid, and the authorities would soon make him do his duty. The defendant was locked up, the sureties being not then forth- coming. THE ENGLISH CHAPEL DISPUTE CURIOUS PRO- CEEDINGS.—The various disputes in reference to the buildino- of the new chapel in Vale-street would be highly amusing, if it were not that there is a really very serious side to the question. As our readers were informed last week, the Chapel Committee gave notice to the contractor, Mr. T. Hughes, that they had taken over the building, and should com- plete it themselves. Since then affairs have become considerably complicated. Mr. W. Williams, builder, of Rhyl, who has done the stonework, and who states that there is a large sum of money owing to him by the principal contractor, has stepped in, and practically seized the building. Acting on the advice of his lawyer, Mr. Louis, of Rutbin. Mr. Williams appeared upon the scene on Saturday evening, and put a man in possessionj also placing upon the entrances, which are attached to his hoardiug, several padlocks. As the members of the cause could not get to the schoolroom iu which they worship without going through th > doorway, and as they contend that Williams ha* not the slightest claim to the building or on the committee, but that he.must settle his dispute with I Mr. Hughes, the contractor, it was agreed that an entrance should be effected by force. Accordingly on Sunday morning two cr three of the deacons and a member cr two proceeded to the building, and one of the deacons, who is familiar with locks, bars, and bolts, being in the iron trade, soon forced off the staple and lock, placed there by Mr. Williams, and effected a way in for the congregation. The services for the day were held, and then another lock was placed thereon by "the man in possession," whose description of the raid made on the building on Sunday morning is laughable in the extreme, though perhaps a little more forcible than polite. On Monday night a prayer meeting was to be held, and the process of forcing off the locks and staple had to be resorted to. Oa Tuesday evening, after the meeting, it was thought that the "clenching" of H the committee's staple" would prevent another lock being put on, but nothing daunted, Mr. Williams's representative obtained a much smaller lock, and managed to fit it safely on, so that on Wednesday was to be seen a lock belonging to the committee, and on the same staple a lock belonging to Mr. Williams. How this very disagreeable affair will end seems doubtful, but the committee are to be sympathised with under the very trying circum- stances in which they arc pi seed. The building is at present quite at a standstill, but we believe the committee are taking steps to continue it, and it is to be hoped the disputes.,ill be settled. Already several hundred pounds have been spent in litiga- tion by the contractor: and it. is to be hoped the committee will be fortunate enough to keep clear of legal proceedings.
RTJTHIN. THE CERRIGYDRUIDION RAILWAY.—The directors met ou Wednesday last. THE GAOL. On Monti",y, 18 prisoners were brought to Ruthin Gaol to finish the terms im- posed upon them, having been previously lodged in Liverpool Gaol. THE READING AND RECREATION ROOMS. — A meeting of the committee was held on Friday week, when Dr. Jenkins presided; Mr. John Jones, vice- president, Mr. Bacon, Ild Gibson, and Miss Cun- liffe, trustees; and a large number were present. The accommodation for the number of young men who attend there of an eveniug being very limiced and insufficient, it. was discussed whether it was advisable to extend the same for the ensuing winter. A long discussion ensued, some advocating the esf abiishment. of a branch at Llanfwrog, others were in favour of taking the adjoining premises, excepting the shop, at a rental not exceeding .£10. A sub-committee was unpointed to arrange with the tenant. Ir ts pleasing to find that the institution is so flourishing. HIGHWAY BOARD.—A meetirg of this Board was held on Monday, under the presidency of Mr. R. G. Johnson. The month's accounts were examined and pss;d. A footpath at Efenechtyd was reported to have been closed by the inquiry relating thereto, was not gone into. The sum of was passed for work on the roads, &c. It was stated thai the sum of was charged by the public auditor for audit- ing the accounts. It was ordered that the men be paid fortnightly by the surveyor. Mr. Adams reported that in carrying out the regulations of the new Act 8. new set of books would be required, which would cost from J63 to £10. It seemed generally thought that many of the requirements of the Act were so complicated that they could not be carried out, particularly in country parishes where no boards existed, for twelve new forms were actually necessary for keeping the accounts. An application was made for a new culvert np-ar tlw Piough Inn, Llandegla, at a cost of about .£20. It was nejoss iry in consequence of the great damage done by the floods there. It was, however, urged that it was only a way to one or two farms. Uit imately it was agreed that the surveyor ascertain if it was oa such a road as the Board ought to keep in order.
COUNCIL MEETING. WEDNESDAY, 1ST OCTOBER.—Present, Dr. W. D. Jones (in the chair), Alderman D. Jenkins, Messrs. R. P. Davies, D. E. Davies, L. Parry, W. J. Hunt, T. P. Roberts, and Mr. Jones. APPLICATIONS. Upon the notice of Mr. T. P. ROBERTS that the resolution disallowing Mr. Jones to place railings in front of some houses in Park-road should be rescinded, Mr. Roberts, of the firm of Lloyd and Roberts, attend- ing to support the application. Mr. ROBERTS pleaded that the road had not been taken over by the Corporation, and that his client had a right to erect the railings, but unfortunately he had appealed to the Council. The motion to rescind the resolution, finding no seconder, fell to the ground. On behalf of himself, Mr. ROBERTS applied to be allowed to make a, bow window to correspond with one already existing in Record House recently purchased by him.—Application granted. Mr. ALUN LLOYD applied that the use of the Assembly Rooms should be granted for 13s. Gd. instead of 23s. for a series of popular entertainments on behalf of the institutions of the town. Dr. JENKINS reminded the Council that before this could be done it would be necessary to rescind the existing resolution, that the room be not granted for less than 23s except for religious purposes. The subject was deferred until next meeting. FOOTPATHS. This everlasting topic was brought forward again. Mr. HUNT complained that the bricks sent to Llan- fwrog and supplied by the Ruabon Company were not equal to sample, and should have been rejected by the Surveyor. The question of ordering more was left to the com- mittee appointed for this purpose. Mr. HUNT proposed that the footpath decided to be made on the south side of Well-street bo proceeded with. Several members considered the present state of the road in front of the houses disgraceful. A committee of three were appointed to visit the place. Mr. D. E. DAYlES thought the old pavement should have been left alone. The SURVEYOR stated that there was sufficient money remaining from the loan to complete the work. Several cheques were signed and the meeting dis- solved. Possibly no meeting will be called again before the 9th November next. COUNTY MAGISTRATES' COURT. MONDAY.—Before Messrs. R. G. Johnson, James Goodrich, Brooke Cunliffe, and J. F. Jesse. A ROW AT GYFFYLLIOG. Margaret Jones, summoned George Lloyd, John Edwards, summoned Elias Jones and Thomas Edwards summoned David Jones, for assaults. Mr. O. Edwards appeared for the "Jones family." There seemed to have been a general row in the village of Gyffylliog during which Margaret Jones went into it to fetch her sons away when Lloyd (she said) knocked her down and severely hurt her. Witnesses for the defence said they saw her on the ground but did not see her struck. The two Jones' were alleged to have committed the assaults during the same melee. The Rev. Reese Williams desired to testify to the excellent character borne by George Lloyd. The Bench fined Lloyd 10s. and costs, Elias and David Jones, 5s. and costs each. AN OLD HAND SENT TO GAOL. Jabez Price, Llanfwrog, was summoned by P.C. James Lloyd for drunken and disorderly conduct. It seemed that there had been five previous convictions against him, in five years the total fines amounting to £55s. The Bench thought fines wasted upon defendant so they sent him to gaol for 14 days. DRINK AGAIN. P.C. George Hughes, summoned Edward Edwards, Llanfair, for drunken and disorderly conduct.—Fined 5s. and costs having never been up before. CASE SETTLED.

An inquest, on the body to inquire into the c iuse of death was opened on Tuesday last, at the Cauibiian Arms, Moss, before B. H. Thel- wall, and a respectable jury.

CEFNYBEDD. NEW HRANCH OF INDUSTRY.—A contemporary says—"Within a mile of C<-fnybedd, on the Wrex- ham, Mold, and Connah's Quay Railway, a discovery has been made which. in all probability, will result in opening up a new branch or industry in that part of the Principality. At Cymmau there is practically an unlimited quantity of rock which, on being burnt, produces a sand that is said to be invaluable for the finest glass-making purposes. Steps have been taken for producing this sand on a large scale."
CEFN AND RHOSYMEDRE.
CEFN AND RHOSYMEDRE. PRESENTATION.—On Tuesday evening an interest- ing event took place in the Rhosymedre National Schools. It was the presentation of a set of boots and a purse to Mr. G.

A crowded meeting test ifled the respect and esteem in which Mr. Bradley Jones is held by his fellow parishioners and scholars. The Vicar (the Rev. J. D. Edwards) presided, and in the course of a short address, alluded in feeling terms to the value of Mr. Jones in his work in the Sunday schools, and the loss that would be felt at his departure, which he was happy to say would not be permanent, for they would occasionally sec him amongst them. He begged his acceptance of the books and purse which had been subscribed for by the church and school.—Mr. Jones, in replying, thanked all those who had so kindly obtained those valuable books for him, and in the course of a very excellent address impressed upon those present the necessity of attending to the ordinances of the church, and upon the children more especially the dui-y of attending the Sunday school.—Mr. George Calvert, on behalf of the committee, gave a short speech endorsing by it the remarks of the chair- man.

Kelly and Keane, Mold, on behalf of the] trustees of the Mold and Broughton turnpike trust giving the Board notice that it would be necessary i for them to purchase the old toll houses at Broughton and Dirty Mile. A committee had been commissioned by the Board to report on the condi- tion of the houses and they had recommended that the houses should be purchased. The report of the newly appointed surveyor was read and at the cou- clusion he remarked that a great deal might be done towards repairing the roads by trimming the hedges also clearing the ditches at the side of them. The Board then gave the orders for a large quantity of metals for repairing the roads. Daring the conversation which followed the report one of the members asked if it was right for mill wagons from Wrexham to lock their wheels whilst going down the hills and having no slipper under them. The clerk said it was illegal, and further, that at soma future time proceedings would be taken against some of the owners of those large vehicles traversing the roads. The Board signed preceipts for rates to meet the expenses of the working. The subject of money paid out of pocket for labour- by the late surveyor before the formation of the Board as well as for materials was again mentioned. Several of the waywardens have paid for work done and also for materials but the new act forbids the re-piyment to them of a larger sum than £ o. Twc or three persons are therefore several pounds out of pocket and are liable for more. The Board now decided to ask those waywardens to present their accounts at the next meeting; and instructed the clerk to look up the law on the subject. The meet- ing then concluded.
LLANGOLLEN. BOWLS.—On Friday last a match was played at Llangollen, between the Wreihaui (Penybryn) and Llangollen BO vling Clubs.

A discussion took place as to the extension of the new main in Church-street, and it was decided to re-lay it as far as the leakage near Mr. S. Hughes's house. The re-laying of the main from the work to the reservoir was next considered; but as there would be only about £68 in hand this half-year, it was deferred till March. Messrs. Cox, Cooke, and Brown were deputed to sign the cheque for Mr. Eaton, for laying the main in Church street. The water list was next considered, the only altera- tion beinar an addition of Is. 61. the half-year to Mr. John Fleet, and a reduction of the like amount in Mr. Pearson's water rent. A nuisance was reported in Mr. Clutton's slaughter-house, and an order was made for the floor to be made impervious to wet, and the walls for a short height. Tins concluded the business.

For some time he has been a member of its general committee, and president of the essay and discussion class, in which he took deep interest. He is succeeded in the excise by Mr. Wolfenden, of London. THE BAPTIST CHAPEL.—The Rev. Gethin Davies, B.A., of the College, Llangollen, has undertaken the superintendency of this chapel, much to the satisfaction of the members. It is chiefly owing to his untiring efforts that the erection of the new chapel in Wrexham-street is being resumed. Con- tracts for its completion have been let to Messrs. Robert Edwards, High-street, and Wm. and Robert Pierce, Pwllglas, and it is hoped the building will be completed early in the new year. It speaks well for the workmanship of those engaged in the earlier contracts, that though it has remained in an un- finished condition for three years exposed to a long series of storms, yet very little of the brick work wiil have to be pulled down. PLEASANT EVENINGS.—This series of entertain- ments, which last winter won so deservedly a suc- cess, was recommenced on Monday last in the Westminster-road Schoolroom. There was a large and highly respectable attendance. The chair was taken by Mr. G. C. Williams, of the U. C. of Wales, and the programme included songs by Miss H. Edwards (U. C. of Wales), Mr. V.T. Evans, and Mr. W. Hopwood, junr. recitation by Mr. F. T. Smith solos on the pianoforte by Mr. T. W. Evans and Miss Annie Powell, and an address on Popping the Question," by the Rev. J. S. Williams, of Welsh- pool. The interest of the meeting was kept up un- abatedly, and a hearty vote of thanks was passed to the performers. It is intended to hold these enter- tainments throughout the ensuing winter, and we trust they will prove to be as successful as the in- troductory one held on Monday.
NEWT OWN. POLITICAL MEETING.—A meeting of Liberals was held on Monday evening in the Market-hall, New- town. Lord Sudeley occupied the chair. There were also present Mr. Grant Duff, M.P., Mr. Davies, M.P., and Mr. Tracy, M.P. Lord Sudeley, in opening the meeting, said it was not an election meeting, or else he would not have been amougst them as a member of the Upper House, but simply to protest against the present Ministry. It was the duty of the people to protest against the present position of the Government, who had added to the present depression. In the course of his speech the noble lord spoke of the blunders of the Con- servative Government. Mr. Grant Duff reviewed the five years' tenure of office of the Conservative Government. They had gone in for a scientific frontier, but not with effect, as the present position of Afghanistan showed. This would not have hap- pened if the Conservatives had not had a majority behind them. The Circular on April 1st, 1878, was the first whip given to the Horses of the Sun. The Berlin Treaty, of which they now saw the conse- quence, they all knew. The present Government betrayed in the Treaty of San Stefano, the Turks to the Russians. The present Government engaged that the Turks should make great reforms, but these had not been carried out. They had also taken in hand Cyprus, and were paying a police for the collection of taxes for the Turkish Government. The war in Afghanistan was for a scientific frontier, when the mountains at the extremity of North- West India was the natural limit. They had now ome upon a second fatal blunder, which was com- mitted because some people imagined that Russia wished for India. Her Majesty's Government was responsible for this panic, whereas English states- men should be the last to go to war, for they were not involved in personal risk nor great personal inconvenience. Thousands of people might have been endangered, and thousands of people might have died in order to gratify a whim. He con- sidered that the Government were incapable ever since the time they had been in power (Applause). [t passed comprehension how men who had any* J thing to lose could place trust in those who had nothing to lose, and who calmly Icked on. (Hear, hear). The Liberal Government under Mr. Glad- stone were in favour of a good system of education for England and Wales, and Scotland, and they had carried it. They proceeded to abolish purchase in the army, which they carried out. They pio- niised to withdraw the troops from the Colonies, which they carried out, as well ns other measures. Mr. St-iart Rendol, the Hon. F. Huibury Tracy, and Mr. Davitl Divres followed in proposing h. resolution condemning the Governmen!.
ITORTHOP. ENGLISH CHAPSL.—The erection of this chapel :8 rapidly proceeding, and the memorial stone" will be laid on Wednesday next by Air. John Ashworth, after which there will be a tei parry in the rational School and a public meeting vn the Calvinistic Met nod is1- Chapel.

RHYL. BIBLE SOCTETV.—On Tuesday evening the annual meeting of the Bible Society was held in the Town Hall, under the presidency of the Rriv. W. Richard- sor, vicar of the parish, and addresses were delivered by the local clergy and ministers. EXCURSION.—On Monday the members of the choir belonging to Corwen parish and other friends, numbering about 60, were treated to Rhyl for a i day's ouring." An excellent dinner and tea was supplied to them at Smith's Dining Rooms. Wellington-road, and a. variety of means of spending a pleasant day provided. The excur- sionists were supplied by the rector, Rev. W. H. Richardson, and other clergy. FORTNIGHTLY PETTY SESSIONS. AIONDAY,—Before Air. T. G. Dixon (chairman), Rev. Dr. Butterton, and Major Rowley Conwy. GUNPOWDER LICENSE. Messrs. Wright and Sheffield, ironmongers, Rhyl, were summoned for neglecting to register themselves as dealers in gunpowder and explosives. Mr. Wright pleaded ignorance of the fact that it was necessary to register every year. It was not done with the intention of evading the act, as they at once applied after the inspector called to lie registered. The Bench, taking this view of the case, said they would only fine defendants Is. and costs, and they hoped other dealers. would take warning. DAMAGING TREES IN A WOOD. Thomas Roberts charged Matthew Bryan, a travelling hawker, with damaging trees on the estate of Sir. W. Grenville Williams, Bart. Mr. Webb appeared for defendant. Complainant said a week before be heard sawing and going on saw two men sawing timber in the wood. He did not go into the wood, but met defendant. Told P.C. Hughes that he had seen the men. Cross-examined Admitted that he saw defendant on the road to Rhuddlan, and that he was encamped on the road with a caravan containing brushes. Was cross-examined with a view of showing that he rsally did not see anybody sawing, nor did he know what sort of wood it was, nor that a branch had been cut off. He only heard the noise and saw the saw in defendant's hands. P.C. Hughes proved that he saw fresh wood by defendant's van, and also that he admitted having pulled- down branches. The wood was trampled like the high- way, and even a swing made in tne wood for their children to play on. Defendant was fined 102., damage Is., and 10s. 6d. costs. Jnn- LISTS for the district were presented by air. Rowlands, over- seer examined and duly passed. A LIVELY ROW AT THE RAILWAY STATION". Robert Roberts (Bodfari), Rhyl, summonei 1 Albert Morgan, Rhyl, for an assault and the latter took out a crOSS-8umn10ns. Air. Ed. Roberts appeared for Robert Roberts. Complainant, who is a commercial traveller, said he travelled from Conway to Ehyl, and at the latter place gave up his ticket, and as he proceeded to the outer door he was "collared" by defendant who asserted that he did not give up his ticket. The man dragged him back again, and in self-defence he struck him, and the railway official struck him again. Isaac Jones said he was coming from the station with. Roberts when the official asked him for his ticket. He told him he had given it up, but the official took hold of him by the collar and dragged him into the station again. That was all he saw. John Morris, a 'bus driver, said as he was going on to the station that night, Mr. Roberts and two other gentlemen gave their tickets up to him. He had not been asked to collect the tickets. Albert Morgan, parcel clerk, said on the night in question the ticket collector was engaged and asked him to take the tickets. As Air. Roberts left the station he said he had given up his ticket but refused to say to whom he had given it. He refused to let him pass, whereupon Roberts called him a •——• scamp and asked him why he arrested him, striking him at the same time in the face. He did not strike Roberts. Some discussion arose upon the fact that the clerk was collecting tickets at the outer door of the station instead of at the platform door where they were usually taken. The Bench sent for Air. Stokes, the station master, and called his attention to the irregularity they thought had taken place on this night as to the taking of the tickets, and he explained ho'.v it was that occa- sionally Alorgan and other clerks took tickets. Air. Roberts here offered to withdraw the ca?e on the Bench expressing the opinion that it was Alorgan that had exceeded his duty, if the latter would pay the costs of the summons. Air. Roberts, solicitor, saving he knew the young man well and would not ask for his fee, but on the Chairman asking Alorgan if he would agree to that course, to the astonishment of everybody he refused unless Mr. Roberts would pay his costs. The Bench having let the case go on, then blamed Alor- gan for exceeding his duty, but as the costs were heavy they would only tine him Gel. costs and fine being £111s. GlL, the Chairman saving he was very foolish that he did not agree to Mr. Roberts terms. ALLI'T'; KI) ASSAUL T ON A COUNTY COURT OJ-TICSR. R- iT. Jones, sub-bailiff of the counry court, sum- moned Edward Owen, Butcher-street, Rhyl, for assault- ing- him in the execution of his duty. Mr. E. Roberts for complainant. R. H. Jones, sub-bailiif of the county court, said, acting under a warrant, he found a horse and cairi; 1 be- longing to Airs. Knipe, and seized them. Left Robert Jackson in possession, but at ten o'clock was sent for, who said he was wanted at the New Inn, where they were taking the things by force. Found GO people there creating an uproar, and trying to take the cart away by force. Defendant (Owen) said that he had better mind, as the people had gpt the receipts, anil in a struggle with the woman the defendant pushed him about, and in self-defence he pushed him again. Defendant called him foul names, and said he was drunk, and lie called the attention of some policemen to his state, In cross-examination he admitted that he did push Owen about when he interfered with him. Two police-constables were called to prove that Jones was quite sober on the ni-ht in question also the sub- bailiff, who proved that Jones and uwen stiagaied to- gether, and he parted them. A boy named Human proved that he saw Owen in- terfere with J ones, pushing him about by the collar. Defendant, (Owen) denied tlie ollence, and called a woman named Ann Williams, who, however, distinctly swore that Owen pushed the bailiff on one side, and told him to let the old woman alone. She, however, varied her statement in cross-examination, and said that Jones pushed Owen first. Some other witnesses were called for the defence, amongst them John Ellis, who, complainant's solicitor asserted, had threatened the bailiff that unless lie with- drew a summons he had in the county court against him he would give evidence against him." Other witnesses were called for the defence. The Bench blamed defendant for interfering in a matter was no concern of his, and lined iiim 5s. andt3 10s. lid. costs, making ;2 15s. Gd. Alonty paid. Ci;i"ELTi' TO A HORSE: HEAVY PENALTY. Inspector Peter Coleman, S.P.C.A., summoned Jonii Lloyd, proprietor of the Royal Hotel, Rhyl, for cruelty to a horse. Air. W m. Davies, solicitor, was for defendant. The offence was in reference to the horse for working, which Air. Lloyd was fined £2 and costs, at the St. Asaph sessions on the previous Alonday. P.O. Hughes said that about twelve o'clock on the 24th of last month he was on duty at Bodelwyddan Church. He saw a horse there belonging to defendant, in a brake. Examined it, and found four sores under the collar. Some of them were the size of a rive shiding piece. Taere was a continual sore from the one to the oilier a lengch of ten inches. There was also a bad sore, on the right side of the mare. On the collsr he saw a lot of biood and matter and a scab, as if off an old sore. They were not new, but old wounds. He was cross-examined, with a view of showing that the collar had been altered, and pieces cut out so as to prevent injury to the horse's neck. Henry Griffiths, at the time in the employ 0" de- fendant, was called to prove that he drew the attention of defendant to the bad state of the neck of the horse, and said it was not fit to have the collar put on, but de- fendant ordered him to use the collar, and send the horse out. The case for the defence was that there had been no cruelty. The horse was bought from Mr. Lewis Alorgan, and proved to be very tender about the neck, and was only used about four times altogether in conse- quence. Every effort had been made by the defendant in providing collars suitable, and having" them altered so as to be as easy as possible, and prevent any injury to the neck ot the horse. Air. Williams, a saddler, was called to prove that he altered the collar for this horse, and to show that de- fendant was most particular in having the collars made so as to prevent injury. The collar worn by the horse was produced by de- fendant, and the bench examined it; the Chairman remarking that it was the best possible evidence tor the prosecution, for the marks of blood, &c., on it showed clearly that some poor animal had been badly punished. After consultation the Chairman said they considered the C:1.e proved as clearly as it was possible for a case to be proved, and defendant would have to pay the full penalty of f;), and costs 16s. 6d., or one month. Mr. Davies handed to Inspector Colman an official notice of appeal, and informed the bench that defendant would appeal at the ensuing' quarter sessions, and requested them to name the amount. Air. George and Air. Davies had an argument as to the necessity of defendant paying the fine, Air. Davies contending that the fine need not be paid if defendant gave sureties to prosecute the appeal, and Mr. George ruling that the money must be paill at once. POACHING. Peter Lloyd, Rhyl, was summoned by John Murray, gamekeeper, Bodrhyddan, for poaching, and proved that on Sunday morning, 21st September, defendant was with a dog in the gorse hunting for rabbits. Defendant declared that he was trying to get the dog out of the gorse. The Chairman, who .found that defendant had not been up for the last three years, expressed the hope that he was not going to begin his old game again. Fined £1 and costs. Defendant: That's a great shame. I'm fined for nothing at all. LOCAL ACT CASES. Thomas Owen, Prestatyn, was fined 5s. and costs for plying a boat close to the ladies bathing ground. About a dozen persons were summoned for non-pay- ment of poor rates, but some of the cases were settled, and other were of no interest.

TiiE MUSICAL FESTIVAL.—The receipts aoounte 1 to £381 16:3. 7d. T'iie accounts have not yet been made up, but it is believed the exDens,s will be somewhere about £100, leaving a balance of about £180 for the establishment of a school of music.

THE COTTAGE HOSPITAL BALL. The most successful ball that has hitherto taken place in Oswestry was that held on Thursday night, Sept. 25, in aid of the funcis of the Cottage Hospital, when about 240 ladies and gentlemen were present. As on previous occasions, the ball and supper rooms were decorated with great skill and ta-"te, and the arrangements were carried out with admirable effect.

The music was supplied by Mr. Streather s band.
