WREXHAM COUNTY COURT. Before Horatio Lloyd, Esq. HUXLEY V. BIRCH. Mr. Acton appeared for the plaintiff, the defendant being undefended. Mr. Acton in opening the case it was an action brought forward by Mr. Huxley, builder of this town. to recover the sum of £8 ISs. 7 d., from Mrs. Birch of the Elephant and Castle Inn. The amount was balance of a contract entered into by Mr. Huxley and the bite Mr. Birch for certain repairs at the Elephant and Castle." He was instructed that it had been of long standing and Mr. Huxley had made repeated applications for payment but without avrnl. He had heard no complaint of the bill from Mrs. Birch until the summons of the present action had been served upon her. It would appear that the late Mr. Birch had applied to Mr. William Jones, the mortguagee, for a further advance upon it after the work had been completed and Mr. Jones had sent an architect (Mr. Morrison) to view the premises and inspect the bill and he said the bill was a just and a fair Qne. Mr. Huxley said he was a builder residing in \Y rex- ham. He was employed by the late Mr. Birch to pull down some old buildings and erect new ones. The con- tract amounted to JM20. The bill for the balance had been tendered about twelve months before. The instal- ments of some few pounds were paid very regnlarly until the bill for the balance was sent in. Mrs. Birch then proceeded to examine the witness, and taking all the items upon which she had any objec- tions, discussed them with Mr. Huxley. She said that a charge had been made by Mr. Huxley for some timber when it was her own property. She did not know much about the building trade, but knew enough to stop Mr. Huxley putting brick window sills when he should have placed stone ones. She was being put upon by Mr. Huxley as by some other men in Wrexham, and all because she was alone and unprotected. Mr. John Huxley, son of the previous witness, said he had often been to Mrs Birch's applying for the money and had never heard any complaints before. The Judge remarked that he was afraid that it was too late for Mrs. Birch to object to the bill. Mrs. Birch produced a bill for materials alleged to have been taken away by Mr. Huxley, of which 13s. 6d. was allowed. His Honor made judgement for the amount forth- with. CLEMENTS V. EBLEY. John Clements, musician, sued Mr. Eblfy, proprietor of a Theatre of Varieties," at present situated in the Beast Market, for arrears of salary. Mr. Acton appeared for the plaintiff and Mr. Sherratt for the defendant. It appeared that Clements had been engaged as the leader of the orchestra at a salary of £1 Is. per week. There was a balance of £4 os. due to the plaintiff, and for that amount the present action was instituted. The defence was that plaintiff had gone away some days without leave. Judgement for plaintiff at 10s. a month. There were no other cases of public interest, the Judge rising at a quarter past three.
WREXHAM SCHOOL BOARD.
WREXHAM SCHOOL BOARD. A meeting of this Board was held on Tuesday last, when there were present—Dr. Williams, in the chair, and Mr Gittins..

A summons was crdered in this case some time ago, but the absence of the father from Wrexham prevented it being taken oat. 6—Emmanuel Norman, 28, Penybryn, Sarth, twelve last March, has been taken from school. Her attendance in school during the past twelve months have been 222 out of a possible 451. 6—Robert Richards, 4, Errdig-road, Mary, twelve last April, makes almost half time on the average.

Attended five times last week. I have the honour to te, gentlemen, your obedient ser- vant, Oct. 21st 1879. J. Lnmop. The cases mentioned in the report were then taken, and in number one, Mrs. Gaughran appeared, and said the children mentioned had been in the Catholic School but were sent home by the Sisters for their pence but not receiving the money at home could not go back again. The children were at home now, and she was sure and certain very near annoyed with them. She had seen Canon Hilton, and he said he could not afford to do anything more for her. She was very dissatisfied with the education they received. The case was allowed to drop on Mrs Gaughran promising to send them to school. The second case was allowed to stand over. In number three, Mrs Ward appeared, and said the children had been ill with diphtheria. They were in the habit of attending the Catholic School^ but had been sent home for their pence. Mrs. Ward com- plained very much of the high fees charged for the little ones "They were too hard in the Catholic School on the poor people." The matter dropped on her promis- ing to send the children more regularly. Mrs. Hughes appeared in the fourth case, and pleaded poverty as the reason of the children's bad attendance, stating that her husband had been m gaol for ten months. He was now released, but could find no employment, and consequently there was no money to pay the school fees. The children had been in the Catholic School, but were sent back for their pence. Mr. Gittins asked if the Canon would not help her ? Mrs. Hughes said she had seen him, and he said he had done all he could for her. The Chairman said the parents were to choose their own schools, but there waa a Free School, to which they might be sent. He thought she had better ask the I Canon again. The case was adjourned for a fortnight. I The fifth case was taken, and Mrs. Norman appeared, who said she had three children ill at home, and had kept Sarah at home in order to assist her. I Mr. Lindop said all her other children were good attendcrs, but this one was very irregular in its attendance. On Mrs. Norman promising to send the girl to school the matter dropped. In case number six, Mrs. Richards appeared, and said the girl Mary was unwell, having a sore throat. She was also kept at home to assist in keeping the house. The mother promised to send the girl to school. Mrs. Doyle, number seven, said she was out in the country all day, and did not know whether the girl was in school or not. She would in future ask a neighbour to see her in school. The matter then dropped. The case of Mr. Evans, number eight, was adjourned I for a fortnight. In cases No. 9, 10, and 11 there were no appearances, and in number eleven a summons was ordered to pro- ceed if thero was no improvement. This concludcd the business.

:WmL- THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. WEEXTLAM. WARD MEETING AT THE TAL nOT INN. A small handbill, calling a meeting of the burgesses of the North Ward io consider the ad- visability of nomicaticg another candidate, were freely distributed about the town on Tuesday, and the result was that about 50 persons met in the Talbot room in the evening to take part in the pro- ceedings. Amongst those present were Alderman Lloyd, Mr. J. Oswell Bury, the retiring member for the North Ward; Mr. G< c. Bradley, member for the North Ward Mr. W. Sherratt, member for the West Ward; Messrs. J £ .,ward Williams (builder, Egerfon-street), F. Jor.as, Ishmael Evans, H. Cum- mings, C. Huxley, bvukk-r, Gomer Roberts, Jas. Roberts, McHale, McIw, J. Kosrers (tobacconist, Hope-street), W. H. Jenkins, Youde, J. Lloyd (Chester-street.), Robert Williams (sec. Liberal Association), J. Stevens (Hope-street), Fleet (Bank- street), S. Jones (Mount street), A. Willder, and W. J. Bidders, &c., &c. The meeting was called for 7 30, ou; until after eight o'clock tne proceedings were amusing. Who called the meeting? who printed the hand-bills H who engaged the room, &c.P wi re asked, but not satisfactorily answered. Thell the oonvfcrsai io:: turned to pigs and things concerning them. Every new arrival was asked if he had called the meeting, and t hen followed some more jelces and complainings. Eventually an efiort was made to get to business. Mr. JAMES JONES Wei), gentlemen, I propose that Mr. Edward Willi.inis take the chair. The meeting was called for half past seven and now it is quarter past eight. (Laughter)- Mr. ISHMAEL EVAXS: I beg to second the motion. (Applause). VOICES: Now, Mr. Williams, now. Mr. WILLIAMS Oh, no, no. Mr. ROGHKS (Taking of his hat) I beg to second the motinn. (Loud laughter). Mr. SHEEBATT Come, Mr. Williams take the chair. Mr. WILLIAMS Oh, 710, I only received this notice in common with others. Mr. ISHMAEL EVAXS then fetched a chair and put it down near Mr. Williams at the end of the room amidst cries of take the chair and much laughter. Mr. SHEIIKATT Come, Mr. Williams, lets get to business. Mr. WILLIAMS Well, gentlemen, I hopo you will not make me responsible for the rent. (^Laughter). If you relieve me of that. (Loud laughter). I have osly received this notice with others. I am not responsible for it at all. If I could explain why the meeting has been called or who called it, it would be a different matter. I cannot tell you any- thing. I am not against the meeting, I am very glad it is called. I don't doubt the present candidate will also be a little relieved by the meet- ing, it wili give him some definite—(shouts of take the chair). Mr. SHERRATT Come to the head of th3 room, don't stay in the draft. (Laughter). Mr. WILLIAMS then walked to the table at the head of the room and said: Wo are assembled, for the object, I presume, to make a choice of a candi- date to represent the North Ward in the Council. I don't know .exactly when the nomination papers have to be sent in, or whether it is necessary for us to have an adjourned meeting, which I would prefer, so that the originators of this meeting would have an opportunity of coming here. Now I should like to hear some one speak or make any suggestions, and let us speth" respectful one of the other, and let ihere be no sc-urrillous language used concerning the Council or their work. We are not here for that purpose, but to select a proper candidate for the North Ward a working man we wan!, a man who will attend to our business. If you have any sug- gestions to make now is your time. Let us speak in a respectful manner, and then no doubt we shall be treated in a respectful manner. Now I will ask anyone to make a proposition or suggestion or express any opinion. If there are no volunteers I shall call on you. After a pause the Chairman called on Mr. Sherratt. Mr. SHERRATT said he quite agreed with what the Chairman had said. They were called to select a candidate, but he was perfectly ignorant of the name of the person who had called the meeting. In fact he knew nothing more about it than thp. Chair- man knew. He was therefore unable to offer any name to them, not having heard of any person to be proposed, neither had he seen any suggestions in the papers, except with regard to Mr. John Oswell Bury, who was already before the constituency of the North Ward. He did not wish that anyone should leave that room, or that anyone should abstain from making observations, but in order that they may know how to take votes if such were necessary he would suggest that the members of the iSorth Ward should take a seat on the right side of the room, and those of other wards on the left. He had no further observations to offer. He was as much taken by surprise as they were. The CHAIRMAN said he understood, from what Mr. Sherratt had said, that they had authority to take a. vote on a candidate. Whether they had or not he should like to read the bill to them which called the meeting. It seemed to him very indefinite. It commenced "Ladies and gentlemen." Well they had no ladies present. (Laughter). (He then proceeded to read the notice, remarking on several of the terms used in it). If anyone else had anything to say he should be glad to hear them. After a. pause he called on Mr. Ishmael j Evans to speak. Mr. EVANS said he came to listen and not to speak. He should be very glad to hear some one propose a candidate. If no one did so, he would propose Mr. John Oswell Bury. (Hear, bear). The CHAIRMAN Perhaps before that is seconded I should call on Mr. Bury to express his views and speak of his past conduct in the Council. Mr. J. E. JONES: I second that. Mr. JAMES JONES Before that is put to the meeting. We don't come here to hear the views of the representatives but to hear the views of those present in regard to the selection of a candidate. No doubt some gentlemen have got together a.nd got out this hand bill and no doubt they have some one in their minds. If there is any one here be- longing to that party now is the time for them to come forward. (Hear, hear). Mr. RICHARD HUGHES I am one of the electors of the north ward and I think I am as much interested as any other elector, and I think it shows great disrespect to myself and others to call us here and get up a meeting of this kind for no purpose whatever. (Hear, hear). In reference to the resolution proposed I beg to add that this meet- ing has entire confidence in Mr. John Oswell Bury and beg to thank him for his past services." (Hear, hear). The CHAIRMAN: Have you any objections to hear Mr. Bury speak ? Mr. GOMER JONES I should like to hear what he has done during the past 12 months. I should be very glad to hear Mr. Bury. The CHAIRMAN: If there is no objection to hear Mr. Bury it will be no harm to hear him, if his not being a ratepayer in the ward doe. not disqualify him. The originator of the meeting has not put in an appearance and I don't know that we can do better than a.sk Mr. Bury to address us. Mr. J. OSWELL BURY said it was now two years ago that he was returned as their representative in the Council, and he could conscientiously come there that night and give an account of his stewardship. He was not prepared to give a detailed statement of everything which had taken place in the Council, but he could answer any questions they may wish to put to him concerning his conduct during the time he had served them. He did not think that morning, that before going to bed he should have had to meet the electors face to face, but having received five of those notices, which had been left at his office, he thought there must be something in it, and that he was wanted there that night. He really did not know what to say, for he had no remarks to make, but he should be most happy to answer any questions which might be put to him. He was not responsible for all the Council did, he could not rule them, but he could give his vote in favour of what he considered for the interests of those ratepayers which he represented. (Applause). He would challenge any man in Wrexham to point to anything he had done wrongly. Some ratepayers were everlastingly grumbling, and if there were no rates to pay they would still grumble. When they saw people goiug about with long faces and saying, The rates are dreadful," & they little thought ( perhaps that there was not a single atom of truth ia it. When he into 'be Council two years i ago the rates were- 2s. 3d. (A VOICE The next rate which was made was 9,1.. the next L. 6J. f'nd the current rate was (Applause). Ir that was increasing the rates he hoped they would go on increasing in the same direction. However, it would not do to reduce the rates to the detriment of the public good. They must have proper sanitary and general legislation. They must look to the sanitary stnte of the town, they must keep their roads in good condition,—and they would good roads, too, when the st-am roller came— and they must do what they could to keep up the reputation of the good old town of Wrexham. (Hear, hear, and applause). He was not prepared with any speech, but he would most willingly answer any questions. (Applause). The CHAIRMAN If any gentleman will put any questionst>> Mr. Bury, now is the time, Mr. SAMUEL JONES (baker) asked the meaning of the 41. in the pound, wh¡eh was paid as poor's-rate, but which went to the bormjh fund. Mr. JOHN OSWELL EuRY Mr. Thomas Heywood, high constable of the town, will tell yon. Mr. GvMER JONES I don't, think it is quite fair for gentlemen of another ward to come and ask questions oi our representative. (Applause). Mr. BitADLEY said it he was permitted he would answer that question, because it. had nothing to do with one member more than another. There were two funds which they had to contribute te. There was the district rate, which, as Mr. Bury had staged, was started iwo years ago at -4.d. That district rate was collected half yearly and it was reduced 2s. 4d. to Is. 9d. and the last two half years to Is. 6d. In adÓicion to that, there was what was called a poor rate, or borough fund, and that was made by the Council for the borough property, in their capacity of a coracration. This fund was chargeable for what was not legitimately charge- able to the county rate. This sum had bean equal to 6d. in the pound, if the inquirer would look through all the accouuts, since the town had been in- corporated he would find that it averaged to 6i. in the pound. Persons thought that all the uaoney they spent was charged on the district rate, for- getting there was a very, large sum paid by the overseers in connection with the borough rate. • Mr. SAMUEL JONES Why should that bo collected sep-irately ? Mr. BRADLEY It always has becr., and it is the same with every incorporated town in the kingdom, Mr. SHERKATT: If those gentlemen of the North Ward will stand up wo shall be enabled to see how many of them are here. (Hear, he:u'). The CHAIRMAN: Would the members of the liTorth Ward stand up ? About 20 persons, in different parts of the room, then stood up. The CHAIRMAN: The majority are ratepayers, and I really think that we are competent to select a candidate. The notice has been very extensively circulated, and if the other ratepayers do not think it worth their while to come and express their opinion, they should abide by ours. (Hear, hear). Would ycu propose any further question to Mr. Bury ? Mr. J. OSWELL BURY: If they have nothing to ask in reference to my past conduct, perhaps if I offer myself for re-eiection they may have some- thing t" ask in reference to my future conduct ? The CHAISMAN: NOW will any oerise upon this ? Mr. JAB. JOENS hinted that the meejug had been called by the Conservatives. Mr. SHERRATT I declare I dor/t know who called this meeting. I am simply here to hear what takes place, and, being in the Council, I shall not record a vote here. I shall go from this room perfectly free to act, just as I came into it. Mr. J. OSWELL BUlW (warmly): If my friends had called the meeting, I should have hoped they would h,ve done so in a. proper ma nner. The CHAIRMAN: HAS any other person got any other name to propose ? There being no answer the nomination of Mr. Bury was put to the meeting. Twelve voted for it and only one against. The CHAIRMAN then called on Mr. Bury to say a few words in regard to the future. Mr. BUUY thanked the meeting- for the expression of their confidence. All that he couli say was that if he was returned to the Council he would go into the chamber as free and unfettered as he went in on the former occasion—free from any pressure from outside. One member in the Council said he would consult the ratepayers on every oc- casioo, but he was of opinion that such was a wrong proceeding. Their representative should go into the Council unfettered, and if they had no confidence in hiheJ should not elect him. He hoped, when his second term of oSce was uo, that he should be able to come to them with as clear a conscience as he could now. (Applause). He con- eluded by proposing a. vote of thanks to the chair- man. Mr. JAMES JONES: Before th it is put I should like to make a. few remarks as to this member of the Council. I believe he is Mr. Richard Jones. (Toice O: cuurse it is). Mr. BURY I mention no names. j Mr. J. JOES: No, but that is the one you mean. I should like to call this to your mind, that he went into the Council on these conditions, that if any- j thing occurred he would consult the ratepayers, and I don't see why any member of the Council should be brought up at this meeting. Besides, I J understood that we were to hear Mr. Bury on the future. Mr. BURY: Well, I have told you my future, and j that is, that I shall etc as I please. The CHAIRMAN: He has promised that he act J conscientiously. j The vote of thanks to the chairman was then seconded, and the meeting immediately broke up. THE NOMINATIONS. The following are the nominations for the four wards:— NORTH WARD. JOHN OSWELL BURY, Stratford House, Wrexham, accountant, proposed by R. W. Evans, 5. Chester- street, and seconded by J. F.

There seems every probability of a lively con- test for the four vacant seats in the Town Council. If the whole of the gentlemen nominated go to the t poll, it will be certainly difficult for some of the voters to know how to vote. The candidates are of the most varied kind, and the objects they have in view in seeking election may be safely said to be as various, but our readers will, we are sure, be thoroughly capable of judging who are the men likely to act independently and serve the ratepayers faithfully. The following are the candidates nomi- nated:—Robert Davies, The Vaults, High-street, pro- posed by Councillor John Davies, and seconded by T. Foulkes, Xilford, R. Roberts, solicitor, proposed by T. Gold Edwards, solicitor, and seconded by Ellis Williams, draper; William Morris, Post-office, pro- posed by Evan Pierce, M.D., and seconded by Thos. Roberts, High-street.

The 1 contest is likely to be unuaoallj svere. j ] RUTHIN. There is likely to be a warm contest here. The knowing candidates are nominated, and it will be )b3erved that the Mayor (Mr. Marcus Louis) does lot seek re-election, and the Fame remark applies ,0 Mr. William Green, who for many years has sat in the Council with great credit to himself, and satisfaction to the ratepayers.

LLAITGOLLEN. THE MAE. IN AGE OF MISS RICF-AP.DS.-We have this week the pleasant du'y of chronicling the interesting event'of the union in matrimony of Joseph Ridley Shields, Esq., of Alesford, Hamp- shire, with Miss Mary Oetavia Richards, the second uaughter of cur influential and highly respected townsman, C. Richards, Esq., Bank Buildings. The stir and bustle of the glorious early morn of Tuesday betokened an occurrence of not-every day life in this rising town, and <he noble triumphal arch which was being raised in Chapel-street, by the tradesmen, bearing besides various mottoes, such as "Success 10 the happy pair," "lYhwn undeb mae na,rfch," Long life and happiness to the bride and bridegroom," the following stanza :— Dattod y dydd fydd, ond nae foed-y rhawg, Rhwysg i'w hoes, a hiroed Dyddanwch dyddiau henoed, A gwynt teg hyd yn gant oed," and also the not-less-pretending arch which scanned the path to the Parish Church, displaying such wishes as "God bless the happy pair," erected by Mr. John Roberts, wheelwright, as well as the bannerettes, flags, &c., which were waving from different house en route, together with the throng that crowded the large church, were no small tokens of the strong attachment which exists between the inhabitants and the sriritedand warm-hearted family of Bank Buildings. Unfortunately, the fins weather in which the dawn had broken was not to centinue Ion.?, and clouds soon covered the borizen, which sent forth a drizzling rain. But, notwithstanding this obstrusion on the part of the elements, the capa- cious church was fully occupied by an anxious crowd long ere the interesting ceremony was to take place. At eleven o'clock the bride's carriage made its appearance. The bride, who was dressed in a white silk costume trimmed vvdth brocade, cords, and tassels, was escorted by her father over carpet laid by Mr. T. Jones, draper, along the path and the aisle. The bridesmaids then arrived dressed in cocoa-coloured cashmere costumes and wearing beaver hats.
