It seemed that the defendant HAD, amongst other things, sworn that John Owen, Plas Coch, had set William Williams' house on fire. Defendant was bound over, himself in £10, and two sureties in.£5 each and it seemed that he was then under bail to keep the peace, and, on the appl: cation of Sergeant Lewis, the former bail was estreated.

ROBINSON.—The testimonial to Mr. John Robinson, in recognition of his valuable services as secretary of the Castle, &c., was arranged to lie presented yesterday (Friday), Mr. Thomas Hughes, chairman of the Quarter Sessions, having consented to make the presentation for the sub- scribers.

Helmore, choir master to His late Royal Highness the Prince Con- sort, and author of a number of valuable works on speaking, singing, & has been secured to give an entertainment next Monday, under the presidency of Dr. Tumour, for the benefit of the institution. Asphndid billiard table has been secured by the committee for the large room recently added to the institution. This has been a heavy additional ex- pense.

Hughes, Mrs. Parry Jones, Mrs. Turner Jones, Mrs. Mostyn, Mrs. Lloyd Williams, Miss Williams, Miss Smart, Miss Roberts, Vale Terrace, Miss Wynne Edwards, Miss Lewis, and the honorary secretary, Mr. J. P. Lewis, solicitor. CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOL.—On Sunday the scholars and teachers of the English school at- tended divine service at St. Mary's Church, when there was also a fair attendance of parishioners. Archdeacon Smart conducted the service, and the Lord Bishop of St. Asaph, being present, ad- dressed the scholars in a very interesting and earnest manner, in the course of his remarks re- ferring to the enjoyment which he had derived from the hearty service. He was much pleased with the reverent and hearty spirit manifested by all in the service, and said he saw there the hope of the Church of England in Denbigh for the future. There was there the promise of a large number of those who, in time to come, should be earnest and intelligent worshippers according to the ritual and doctrine of the Church. He then went on to speak of the object and value of Sunday schools, and to give interesting illustrations of those who, by the power of the word of God set forth in the schools, had been led to consecrate their lives to the service of Jesus Christ and bring forth fruit to the glory of God. He spoke to the teachers of the encourage- ment it should be to them to feel that they were permitted to be labourers in the Lord's vineyard, and that their labours may be the means of bless- ing to many of the scholars. At the close of the service, the collection was made for home missions. His Lordship expressed himself as very much pleased with the school and the service. As indict- ing the spread of English education, the Bishop asked all who understood and spoke Welsh well to put up their hands, but only about eight boys did so. He therefore addressed the scholars in English. BOROUGH MAGISTRATES' COURT. FRIDAY: Before the Mayor (Alderman T. Gee), Mr. Thomas Evans, and Mr. W. J. W. Lloyd. HUSBAND AND WIFE. Richard Jones, engine driver, Denbigh, was sum- moned for arrears of maintenance to the Guardians of St. Asaph Union given in support of his wife and her three children. The sum of 6s. weekly had been made on a magistrates' order in 1874, and the defendant was now 13 weeks in arrear. The parties had been separ- ated in the year named, and the man had now refused to pay on the order, having sent to the Guardians to say that he was going to take a house for her and her three children and they must stop the pay. Mr. C. Grindley represented the Guardians and Mr. Louis the defendant. The case was argued at great length, but the facts were of no public interest. An order was made on the defendant for the arrears due of JE4, but no costs were allowed. The complainant and defendant met together; with the Mayor and Mr. Grimsley, and in the end it was resolved that Richard Jones continue to pay the 6s. weekly to his wife until April next, and then 8s. 6d. weekly. THE DRINK AGAIN. Grosvenor Roberts, Henllan-street, pleaded guilty to being drunk and riotous in Wesley Place. Sergeant Lewis proved the case. Five times previously con- victed for similar conduct.

Defendant, the collector said, was always the same, and refused to pay. Usual orders made. A number of other summonses were issued, but the cases were settled before they came into court. ALLEGED POACHING.—TRUMPERY CASE. John Hughes, Legard, Denbigh, was charged with poaching on land in the occupation of Mrs. Story, on the 17th October.. Thomas Powell, keeper at Foxhall, proved seeing the defendant near the fences with a dog, which hunted the fences and ran a rabbit. Defendant was in the road, and hunting at the rabbit in the ditch, thus helping the dog Defendant had a cart and two horses in the road, and he saw defendant leave the team whilst he acted thus. When accosted, defendant asked forgiveness, and said he did not get his living by poaching. „ Defendant denied the offence, and called John Williams, car driver, who saw defendant standing close to the hedge straight up, but he did not put his hand in the hole. Didn't see the dog at all; the dog was in the bush or somewhere.. Defendant said the dog went into the hedge, and he could not stop her. The Bench dismissed the summons. ANOTHER ALLEGED TRESPASS. Herbert Roberts, Charnel's Well, was charged with trespassing on October 26th, on land belonging to Mrs. Hughes, Plas Chambers, in search of rabbits. He denied that he was in search of rabbits he was merely P C Powell said he saw defendant beating several hedges of the field, and having "lurcher and terrier dogs with him. He was working at Plas Chambers, but had no business there on Sunday, being not employed there on that day. Robert Jones, bailiff, was called aa witness. Case dismissed. CHAMBER OF AGRICULTURE. A meeting was held on Wednesday, under the pre- sidency of Mr. Joseph Lloyd; there was only a small attendance. ASSOCIATION WITH THE CENTRAL CHAMBER. A number of forms were sent down from the Central Chamber for this Chamber to sign, in order to carry out the desire for affiliation. A communication was received, stating that the Council had accepted the Vale of Clwyd Chamber. It was agreed that as the financial year commenced December 1st that this Chamber join at that date. NEW MEMBERS. Mr. Thomas Smith, Plas-yn-Llan, Llanganhafel; Mr. R. C. Griffiths, Park Farm, near Chester; and Mr. John Humphreys Jones, Trefnant, were elected mem- bers of the Chamber. MANCHESTER AND LIVERPOOL SOCIETY. Mr. MOUNTFIELD and Mr. D. ROBERTS raised the question of the Chamber seeking to influence the above Society to have the next show at Chester for the benefit of the district, but it was felt that the Chamber could not move in the matter. AGRICULTURAL DEPRESSION. The CHAIRMAN, in introducing this subject, remarked that he was glad to see that the Baner had at last con- descended to notice the Chamber, and had given them a translation of the paper recently read by Mr. Roberts, and commented favourably upon it. Mr. MOUNTFIELD expressed pleasure at the paper, and that the farmer must agitate, and not take things as they had done. He thought with Lord Derby, that the farmers must stand up before the landlords, and they would get better terms. Depression was not alto- gether due to bad seasons, but to such causes as re- stricted covenants. The law of restraint gave the land- lord power to accept the highest bidder for farms, for he could get the rent no matter whether the man was an agriculturist or not. They must cheapen the land transfer and leases, and get working farmers, or a man understanding farming, into Parliament, for at present farmers did not hold together, but were like a rope of sand; and they must hold together. The landlords were not to blame for this state of things, for they had a right to get the highest rent they possibly could for the land, for he would do it himself and so would any one else. Mr. ROBERTS thought the paper one of the best read in the Chamber, and he quite approved of all the state- I ments made therein. Mr. R. C. B. CLOUGH thought there were two slight mistakes in it with regard to the land tax and tithe, The tithes were not increasing, he thought, and were fixed on a certain basis calculated on the average of every seven years. As to the land tax, it was never altered, but other rates had increased, and he was afraid they would increase, especially in boroughs, as also in sub- urban districts where sanitary matters were carried out, and the present scheme of education and doing away with turnpike trusts, thereby causing the repair of the arterial roads to fall on the land. Mr. J. W. LLOYD said the tithe was altered every year, and was increasing. Mr. CLOUGH thought the average was going down. As a rule leases were not charged very heavily for, and if a tenant considered it to his benefit, he would not object to pay it. An ordinary agreement for three years could be made without the expense of a lease, but in these bad times people did not care to take leases, and if times were as bad as they were said to be, they would not take them for nothing. As one connected with g'entlemen having estates, he could say that he had not a farm to let, and if he had there would be many applicants for it. As regards representatives in Parlia- ment, that was a matter that they could work up to. Of course owners of land expected to receive a certain amount of profit on land, but landlords should assist farmers if they were losers. If people would only take the trouble to register their titles to property, the great expense of leases would be to a large extent done away with. Mr. J. LLOYD thought the paper failed really to show that depression existed, but the depression was taken for granted. The speaker referred to 1822 and 1834, as times when depression was much greater than now, for in the first period, landlords lost nine millions of pounds, and at the latter date there were 25 per cent. of the people paupers. He went on to urge that class must meet class in the matter. He thought it would be well to call attention to the tithe, and ask the landlord to take it upon himself, and went on to show that the tithe had been taken from its legitimate object of helping the poor, and given exclusively for religion. The land tax was an unjust one. As regards the other rates the farmer had a voice either directly or indirectly in the imposition of the other taxes. He quoted figures from emigration returns to show that other countries were as bad as England, or else persons would not emigrate to the extent they did a few years ago. He suggested that a circular be sent to the landlords calling attention to the necessity of tithes being borne by the landlord. Eventually it was agreed to adjourn the meeting, for the further discussion of the subject.
RUTHIN. THE Mr. Sykes, who is said to have taken Ruthin Castle, is a son-in-law of the late Mr. Platt, M.P. "BONFIRE" NIGHT.—On the 5th of November a grand display of fireworks was arranged by the pupils of the Grammar School, Masters J. Hum- phreys and C. F. Roberts being treasurers, and R. W. Rouw, secretary. A torch-light procession took place at 6.30, when an effigy of Guy Fawkes was carried to the school fields, where it was con- sumed in a huge bonfire. Subsequently, there was a grand display of fireworks. IMPROVEMENTS.—The new shop erected by Mr. W. C. Joyce in St. Peter's Square is a great im- provement upon the old premises, and an acquisi- tion to the square. The flagging in front is an ex- ample for the Corporation to follow when they com- mence the new footpath to the church gates. Mr. Joyce intends to place a large clock in the square, over his premises. This will be a boon that market people will appreciate. ENTERTAINMENT.—On Friday last the second of the series of popular entertainments came off under the best advantages. That is, a good audience and a good programme. There were one or two disappointments, but the novelty of the amusements were interesting, and made up for a few deficiences. The Ruthin Glee and Madrigal Society sang three glees, and.tbe.Football club, for whose benefit the proceeds went, came on the plat- form in costume. Mr. Parry was well received, and sang "A gentleman still" and "The Frenchman" in good style. Master and Miss Cole were applauded in their singing Inanita." Mrs. Watts, as Mother Gum," received marks of approbation from the audience, as also did Mr. Walmsley and G. Roberts. The toy symphony (composed by Haydn), under the leadership of Mr. Humphreys, was exceedingly well rendered, and much appre- ciated. The following took part therein:—Messrs. R. Jones, Edwards, J. M. Hughes, J. Humphreys, R. and W. Lloyd, J. F. Walmsley, Elias Owen, Alun Lloyd, W. Owen, and Miss Edwards. The waxwork exhibition of real live figures, dressed up and representing "a cobbler," "a Frenchman," Garibaldi," an eminent violinist," John Morgan and wife in groups," If The noble bugler who sounded the charge for the battle of Alma," U a. representative of the police force," "Miss Arabella Goddard," Red Riding Hood," &c. Mr. R. Jones Edwards, who acted as showman, caused much curiosity and laughter as he unveiled his costly figures. The mechanical motion of each was very natural, especially the first one. BOARD OF GUARDIANS. MONDAY.—Present: Mr. J. W. Lloyd, J.P., in the chair; Messrs. Brooke Cunliffe, R. G. Johnson, and J. F. Jesse, ez-officios; John Jenkins, H. Powell Jones, T. Lloyd Roberts, Evan Ellis, T. Williams, Wm. Jones, Henry Williams, &c. EDUCATION AND ECONOMY. Amongst the applications for school fees was one from a man who has a wife and seven children, all under ten years old, six of them being at school, which cost 6d.; and he desired that it should be remitted. The Board argued the question a long time, it being mentioned that the man earned 16s. weekly. Two pro- positions were put forward, one that 4d. per week should be allowed, and another that 2d. a week only be allowed. Ultimately the question was settled by splitting the difference and allowing 3d. per week. A MODEL WIDOW. Amongst the relief cases was one of a widow who had four children, and who now required relief because she had given birth to an illegimate child. It was stated that it was a monstrous shame that the ratepayers should be compelled to support people of that kind, but as the woman was destitute the Board had to relieve her. STATISTICS AND VAGRANTS. Out-relief for the fortnight, £92 3s. cheques drawn, £ 95; balance, £ 701 2s. lOd. No calls due. In the house 74, against 71 last year. Vagrants relieved dur- ing the fortnight, 139. It seemed that during the half year the vagrants relieved had been 1,551. The Chief Constable wrote recommending that the hours for taking in vagrants should be six to eight in the winter, and eight to ten in the summer.
CAEBWYS. DESPERATE ENCOUNTER WITH POACHERS.—At a special sessions, held on Thursday week, at Caerwys, Joseph Blackwell, formerly a gamekeeper at Holy- well and neighbouring districts, was brought up on remand, charged with being concerned in a terrible assault which was committed upon Edward Ellis and Edward Thomas, gamekeepers to Mr. William Williams, of Caerwys. The accused was charged upon three warrants, with being concerned with two others (who are well known, but were not in custody), with night poaching after sunset, and also with assaults. The justices upon the Bench were the Right Hon. Lord Mostyn, Rev. T. Z. Davies, Colonel the Hon. Roger Mostyn, and St. John Charlton, Esq.—Mr. William Davies (Holywell) appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. P. Mwyndeg Evans (Holywell) defended. In opening the case for the prosecution, Mr. Davies said that as far as the prisoner was concerned, he need scarcely state that he was well known to the court, having re- peatedly appeared before the court in the capacity 1 of a prosecutor, he having been employed as game- keeper by a gentleman residing at Bryngwyn Hall, and subsequently by Mr. William Williams, of Caerwys. Of all the persons in the world, he should have thought that the prisoner would have been the last to have appeared before the court in his present position, it being, if possible, an aggrava- tion of his offence that he should be found stealing the property of his former employer. But he was sorry to say that Blackwell had filled the dual posi- tion of gamekeeper and a desperate poacher, and had shown himself to be guilty of the basest in- gratitude in the offence with which he was then charged.—Edward Ellis, who was accommodated with a seat whilst giving his evidence, was first called. His head was swathed in bandages, and his face bore marks of severe punishment. The witness said he succeeded the prisoner as game- keeper to Mr. William Williams. On the 17th inst., he was in a field close to the wood called Tan y-walk. He went into the field in company with Edward Thomas, about half-past eight in the evening. They walked along the hedge be tweon the wood and the field. They saw an object, and Thomas said What's this ?" The object turned out to be a man, who jumped up and shouted Come here, lads, here they are." The man then ran away, and the keepers followed him, and in trying to grab at him, he struck some pegs the man was carrying under his arm. At last he (witness) caught him, but at that time he did not know who be was. Just at that time Thomas came up and the man dropped on the ground and Thomas fell upon him. The prisoner Blackwell ctme up at that moment, and there was a third man abouc five yards off. He took hold of Blackwell and struggled with him. He was sure that the prisoner Biackwell was the man he struggled with, as he had known him for many years, and had caught him poaching before. Blackwell struck him as hard he could repeatedly about the legs with a big stick, and also struck him across the face with the stick. They were still struggling, and they fell on the ground, he (Blackwell) being uppermost. He struck him again on the face, and afterwards took something out of his pocket, and fumbled as if he was attaching it to his wrist. At that time Black- well was kneeling on witness' stomach, and he kept knocking him about the face and head with "the something." It looked like a stick, but it was very hard. He struck him repeatedly, until he had eleven holes on his head, and then he said to Black- well Go away, you have killed me now." After that he struck him two or three times on the head, and he became insensible. He did not see Biackwell going away, nor did he know how long he lay upon the ground in that state. When he recovered consciousness he found himself by Caerwys Hall door, but he had no idea how he got there. From that time he had been under surgical treatment. Mr. Hamlet Lloyd Davies, M.B., Holywell, said he examined the witness Ellis, on Saturday last. He described the injuries which he found the man to be suffering from, as detailed by the preceding witness, and added that the man's general health was impaired and he was quite incapable for work. He had also examined Edward Thomas, and de- scribed his injuries. The cut above his eye he considered to have been caused by a blunt instru- ment. He could scarcely imagine it to have been caused by a nail. Edward Thomas, the other game- keeper, gave evidence in Welsh. He corroborated the former witness as to the proceedings which led to the assaults. He said that in the fight, his assailant—the man who has not been apprehended —bit him severely in the thumb, and endeavoured to gouge out his eye. He fought for about a quarter of an hour, and then called upon Ellis, but got no answer. Subsequently Blackwell came up, and abused him terribly whilst his thumb was in the other man's mouth. The heavy stick produced he knew to belong to the prisoner. Acting-sergeant Hug-hes, of Caerwys, produced the clothes worn by the witness Thomas at the time of the assault, which were saturated with blood. He deposed that he apprehended prisoner in the railway train at Cefnybedd, near Wrexham. He struggled violently in the carriage but was overcome. Mr. Evans made an ingenious speech for the defence, arguing that the prisoner was simply proceeding along the footpath when he heard voices, and on going up to the spot he was assaulted by the keeper, and the fight in which he afterwards took part was in self- defence. The police officer was complimented for the manner in which he made the apprehension. A stick found amongst other things on the ground and marked with blood was proved to belong to Blackwell. He was committed to prison for five months with hard labour and ordered to find sure- ties not to offend again for twelve months, failing that to be further imprisoned for six months.

NEW ENGLISH CONGREGATIONAL CHAPEL.—The ceremony of layirg the memorial stone of the new English Congregational Chapel was performed on Monday, November 3rd. In the morning at eleven, an appropriate sermon was delivered by the Rev. J. S. Williams, of Welshpool, sectary of the Mont- gomeryshire District Union. At one o'clock lunch took place at the Owen Glyndwr Hotel, when a large number of visitors and friends sat down to an excellent repast prepared by Mr. and Mrs. Jones, By 2.30 a large number of ladies and gentlemen assembled on the ground of the new chapel, which is opposite the workhouse, and close to the Baptist Chapel, to witness the ceremony. The dedicatory prayer was offered by the Rev. D. B. Hooke, Mold. Mr. C. Roberts then stepped forward to read letters of apology for non-attendance, amongst others from Mr. Hudson, Chester, enclosing a cheque for .£50, Mr. Robertson, M.P., Pale, with .£10, Mr. Mr. Holland M.P., with .£2 2s., the Hon. C. H. Wynn, with .£2 2s., Mr. Sberriff Crogen, with £2 2s., and Mr. Barnes with .£2; but this gentleman, although he was afraid he could not attend, was happily able to be present to lay the stone.—Mr. T. Minshall, Oswestry. next gave a statement of Congregational principles, which were very in- interesting.—Mr. Barnes having laid the stone, he addressed the meeting on Congregationalism, and on retiring was loudly cheered. An opportunity was then afforded to those present to place gifts on the stone towards the building fund, and the pro- ceeds amounted to Jt87 103. Id. Tea was provided for friends and visitors at four, and for the children of the Sunday school at five. A public meeting was held at six o'clock in the Baptist Chapel, with Mr. T. Minshall in the chair, when addresses were delivered by Mr. Young, Mr. Rogers (Wrexham), the Rev. Ebenezer Davies, Rev. H. C. Williams (Cor- wen), and the Rev. Mr. Welsford. Glees were sung at intervals by the children.—The Rev. Mr. Hughes, after a few introductory remarks, moved the follow- ing resolution :—" That a vote of thanks be given to Mr. Barnes for his kindness in laying the foun- dation stone, and for the able address which he de- livered, and for his promise of sending a cheque towards the funds; that a vote of thanks be passed for the loan of the Wesleyan Chapel in the morn- ing and the Baptist Chapel in the evening; and that a similar vote be accorded to the ladies for the excellent tea which they had provided; and to the Chairman, Mr. Minshall—(cheers)—for the excel- lent address which he delivered in the afternoon, and for presiding that evening."—Mr. C. Roberts seconded the votes of thanks, which were carried with cheers.—Mr. Minshall having acknowledged the compliment in a brief address on behalf of Mr. Barnes and himself, the meeting was brought to a close at eight o'clock.

These two men were charged with having, on the 8th September, fished in a coracle in the Dee, in the parish of Chirk, the adjoining land being in possession of Mr. Myddelton Biddulph, of Chirk Castle, who had let the fishing in that part to the Mid Dee Club. Mr. Duncan, Chester, prosecuted, and Mr. Cart- wright appeared on behalf of the men. For the defence, Mr. Cartwright contended that the fishing in this part of the river having been free from time immemorial, the club were ousted out of their right to conserve the same. The prosecution urged that although the public had been allowed the free fishing of the river for many years, the owner of the property adjoining the river could at any time, if he desired to do so, take from the public that right. A large number of witnesses were called am. both sides, and ultimately the Bench, after a short consultation, decided that the prosecutor had made good his claim to the private fishing of this water but as the public seemed to be under a wrong impression upon the matter, they would merely inflict upon defendants the nominal fine of Is. and costs. In the case of Thomas Williams, who was found fishing in the same spot on the same day, & warrant was granted against him. SCHOOL BOARD CASES. The following fines were inflicted for non-attendance at school, the informant being Mr. John Williams, attendance officer for the Llangollen School Board :— Ed. Roberts, Vron, 5s. including costs; John Jones, Pengwern-square, and Evan Evans, Penllyn, as. includ- ing costs. George Henry Jones, son of Ed.

MOLD. PLEASANT EVENINGS."—On Monday last the Westminster-road schoolroom was crowded with a highly respectable audience, at the second of these series of entertainments, which are to be continued every week throughout the winter.. The chair was taken by Mr. C. P. Morgan* of Bryn-yr-Haul, who delivered an excellent address. The audience having united in singing Oh, touch those chords again," the programme was gone through. It in- cluded songs by Mr. Herbert Williams, Miss A. J. Lawson, and Mr. Luther Jones; recitations by Messrs. Lewis Everett, jun., and E. Edwards; pianoforte duets by Misses H. Adams and E. Ed- wards, also by Misses A. Powell and L. Hales. An amusing address was also delivered by the Rev. J. S. Williams (Welshpool) on Bachelors v. Babies." At the close a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the chairman, and performers on the motion of the Rev. D. B. Hooke seconded by Mr. John Griffiths. LOCAL BOARD.—A meeting of the above Board was held at the County Hall last Wednesday, when the following members were present—Messrs. Henry Lloyd Jones (chairman), Thomas Williams, James Hughes Jones, Oliver Jones, John Corbett, John Hughes, Griffith Jones, Joseph Ea.ton, A. J. Brereton and Henry Roberts. The plan submitted by Mr. Brereton as to the face of the buildings in Chester-street was accepted, as arranged between the Clerk and the agent of Colonel Williams, the owner, and in accordance with the letter of Mr. Aydon, the owner's surveyor. The recommenda- tion of the Sanitary Committee, as to making intercepting tanks for the sewage, so as to prevent its flow into the Alyn, was adopted. The Clerk was instructed to communicate with the owners and occupiers. The drainage scheme was con- sidered. Many members thought the scheme proposed by Mr. Bellis and Colonel Jones too costly and unnecessarily large, and that smaller schemes ought to be adopted. It was resolved that the Clerk write that the landowners would not sell land forthepurpose, and that other schemes would be pro- posed. Miss Powell's claim for rent was not admitted, and it was stated that any action be defended. It was resolved that the Board lay a drain from Miss Powell's tank to th& main drain. The ques- tion of the disposal of the money given by the late P. Ellis Eyton, Esq., M.P., and the local Eistedd- fod Committee, was considered.. It was suggested that the two funds ie- amalgamated, and that the Eisteddfod Committee: bø: sequeatsd to meet the, Board on Monday night next, at seven p.m., in the County Hall, to consider the matter of the invest- ment of the funds. Mr. J. H. Jones's motion as to alteration of dates of fairs was considered. He suggested that the fairs be held on the third Wed- nesday in every month, and a discussion took place. The matter was adjourned for further discussion to the next Board. The Lighting Committee recom- mended the erection of two lamps at Pentre, Dr. Thomas Williams to make a donation of .£2 to- wards the expense. It. was ordered that four new lamps be placed in Grosvenor-street, and at the places recommended by the Lighting Committee, and one additional in Chester-street. A memorial from the inhabitants of Pwllglas and Groesonen was referred to the Lighting Committee, to meet as soon as possible, with power to act and order posts. The Board rose at nine o'clock. PETTY SESSIONS. MONDAY.—Before Colonel Cooke (in the chair), Capt. A. F. Jones, and E. Thompson, EIIW. ROBBERY OP £40. Thomas Clarke, a man of unusually large stature, and Christiana Clarke, his wife, were charged on remand with stealing from the person of Ebenezer Thomas between £30 and £40. From the evidence in the case it appears that the prisoners came into Mold on Thursday, the 23rd of October. After begging at seveial places of business singly, the two went into The Vaults, High-street, where the prosecutor, Ebenezer Thomas, a South Welshman, who lodges at G wernafield, and has a small contract in connection with the Alyn Tin Plate Works, was sitting. The male prisoner, who is a discharged soldier of the 55th Regiment, and is now, together with his wife, a professional tramp, told the prosecutor, who had a quantity of boiled ham in his pocket and a roll, presented the man with them. His wife then came in and helped him to eat the food, and the prosecutor gave gave them each a glass of ale. This took place at the bar, and when the ale was finished, the three went together into the parlour and sat down, the prosecutor in the middle, the male prisoner on his right, and the female prisoner on his left. The prosecutor, who was the worse for liquor, had a considerable sum of money upon him, from £30 to jE40, the gold being in his left trousers pocket in a paper bag labelled £25, whilst a quantity of loose silver was in his right trousers pocket. Another glass of ale was drunk in the parlour by each of the three, and between eight and nine o'clock in the evening they left the place and went to the Cross Keys, New-street, where prosecutor called for another glass of ale for each. He left them somewhere between nine and ten o'clock, and when going home, about half-past ten o'clock, he missed money. He returned to the police orfice at Mold and gave information. Inquiries were at once instituted, and on Friday morning a telegram was received from Wrexham that the prisoners were in custody there. P.C. Thomas Jones (5) was despatched to Wrexham, and charged the female prisoner with stealing the money, and she said, "I didn't go out of the house with him." He charged the male prisoner with receiving the money knowing it to be stolen, and he replied, "I did receive the money, but I did not know it was stolen." The prisoners had been apprehended at Wrexham by Inspector Lindsay, of the Denbighshire police, on Friday morning, and he found upon them j615 in gold and 16s. Did. They had made purchases of the value of £2, of different articles of wearing apparel, part of which was pawned in Wrexham before their apprehension, while the re- mainder was recovered and produced in Court. On Saturday morning, the 25th ult., the prisoners were brought before H. C. Raikes, and E. Thompson, Esqrs., when the charge was gone into, and the facts, as above stated, elicited. Mr. Deputy Chief Constable Adams asked for a remand for a week in order to make inquiry into the character and antecedents of the prisoners, and they were remanded until Saturday last, when they were brought before Edward Thompson, Esq., and the depositions of the witnesses taken. The police had net meanwhile obtained any information as to the antecedents of the prisoners, and Mr. Thompson further remanded the case until Monday for summary treatment, the prisoners pleading guilty. The evidence was now read over, and the prisoners pleaded guilty to the charge. The Chairman said the Magistrates had decided to sentence each of the prisoners to four months' imprison- ment with hard labour, and they wished to say that they considered it very wrong for the landlord of the vaults to allow any one remain in the house in the state the prosecutor was ln, There was no doubt he had had too much liquor, and drunkenness was the cause of a good deal more than half the crime of the country. They I hoped this would be' a lesson to the prosecutor to be sober in future. The money found on the prisoners was ordered to h. returned to the prosecutor. A ROW AT BUCKLEY.. John Hughes and Henry Hancock were charged with being drunk and refusing to quit the licensed premises of Samuel Jones, the White Lion Inn, Buckley. P.C. Thomas Jones stated that on the 18th ult., at ten o'clock, hearing a noise in the White Lion, he went in and saw the defendants, who were drunk, fighting. He asked them to go out, and they refused to go. No explanation was offered by either defendant, and the Magistrates imposed a fine of 10s. and costs, or seven days' hard labour in each case. KEEPING A DOG WITHOUT A LICENSE.. Edward Rowland, plasterer, Buckley, was summoned by P.C. Thomas Jones for keeping a dog without a license. The officer stated that he saw the clbg, which was a lurcher, racing some sheep, and traced'it to the defendant's house, and on asking for the license it was not produced. The Magistrates imposed a fined of 50s. and the costs. SCHOOL BOARD CASES. Mr. H. Gv Roberts, solicitor, clerk to the Mold School Board, prosecuted in the following cases :— Rowland Jones, disobeying attendance order for one of his children, who had made 94 attendances out of 204, was fined 5s. including costs. Evan Ellis, shoemaker, Pentre, was brought up in custody, having disregarded a summons, charged with neglecting to send his children regularly to school. Mr. Edwards, the school attendance officer, stated that the Board applied for a penalty in the case of Mary Hannah Ellis, daughter of the defendant, in whose case an attendance order was made on the 19th May, since which time she had made 19 out of a possible 197 at- tendances. An order had been made and a fine im- posed in the case of one of his boys, and the boy was not attending yet, and he had got another child who had not yet been to school. The defendant was in regular employment. Mr. Roberts said the fine in the case of the boy had not yet been paid. The defendant pleaded that the children had not baen well for the last month. The Chairman said it was not the last month, but the last six months. P.C. Andrews, who executed the warrant for the de- fendant's apprehension, stated that Mrs. Ellis told him that she would keep the child at home in spite of the School Board or the magistrates. The children seemed all well and healthy, and there seemed a house full of them. The Chairman You will be fined 5s. including costs. The officer of the School Attendance Committee of the Holywell Union proceeded against Thomas Parrg; Nerquis, for disobeying an attendance order of the magistrates as to one of his children. Out of a possible 1126 times, the child had only made 37 attendances. The officer stated that the defendant was a collier. The magistrates imposed a fine of 5s., including costs- HUSBAND AND WIFE. Samuel Bebington, collier, Nantmawr, was summoned for neglecting his wife and child. Mr. Griffiths, relieving officer of the Holywell Union, prosecuted, and stated that the defendant's wife and child became chargeable to the Union on the 10th October, vtthen, on the application of the woman, an order of admission to the-workhouse was granted. The defendant, after leaving Nantmawr, had obtained work at Neston, and was now employed at Buckley. P.C. Thomas Jones (Buckley), in answer ttr. the Bench, said he knew the parties. The man bare a. steady character, and, as far as he knew, the woman, was respectable, but they had lived very uncomfortably since he knew them. After consultation, the magistrates adjourned the case for a month, in order to give the defendant tine to think over an arrangement, either by living again .with, his wife, or paying the Guardians' expenses, and. agree- ing to give her an allowance in fuiaire, failing which, they intimated they would send him to goal for aanonth with hard labour. DRUNK. Edward Williams, plasterer, MoH, wasRummcnedfor being drunk in High-street, Mold, on the 2Oth,of last months The-magistrates convicted, and imposed a fine of 15s. and the costs, or 14. days' hard labour.
SANTGLm THE PARISH CHURCH.—It will be fresh in the recollection of the inhabitants of Naoitglyn and neighbourhood, that som e months since the pretty little church of this qua;,nt village (a fwmiles from Denbigh) was re-opened aftQI: certain restorations had been made,, and that at the time there were some interesting services held to celebrate the event. Though the edifice- was then ready for divine service,, theare were one or two things that had to be added before the restoration could be described as finally completed, amongst which may be named a small carved tablet, which has been in preparation by a member of the congregation, the stone for which; having been obtained from the neighbouring blftj e-stone quarry of Messrs. J. Evans and Sons. Tids tablet, and a small plate attached to it, for e purpose of recording the erectioa of an orna .tal window at the west end of the church,, and vhich has been placed there- by the direction* aitsj at the cost of, Meilir Owen). Esq., of Tan-y-gyrt» in loving memory of his mother, the wife of the; late Aneurin Owen, the Celtic scholar, who was lIlh, a son of William Owen Pugh, L.L.D., the- compili r of the Welsh National Dictionary. The remaiii lS of this eminent and learned family are in this ebl jrchyard, adjoining the southern portion the iding. The size of the tablet referred to is eights m inches by fifteen, and the main feature on the f1 ice of it is a design of a wreath (encircling the bet as plate), representing two branches of ivy foliate' j in leaves, and interwoven into each other in at 7 jatnral arrangement on the pe rt of the stone. This has been copied from nature, and so skilfully carved that ttie veins of the leaves are visi- ble. At each of the four angles of the stone there is a carved ornamental figure, something in the form of an architectural quatrefoil with other suitabia embellishments to complete. This tablet was pre- pared, and the designs carved upon it, by Mr. Edward Evans, one of the parishioners and a native of the village, who, it appears, has taught himself the art of carving during his leisure hours. In the centre of this stone is set a small brass plate prepared for the purpose by a Birmingham firm of engravers, on which is the following inscription re. ferring to the window "To the glory of God, and in memory of Jane. wife of Aneurin Owen, this window was erected by her affectionate son Meilor, A-D., 1877." This stone has been recently fixed, and is placed against the wall immediately beneath the window whose erection it records. The result is a neat and appropriate design, and such an exftmple of artistic workmanship is worthy of praise, considering that it is done by native talent. The sculptor has marked his initials "E. E." in the lower corner, and no doubt he feels a natural pride that a bpecimen of his industry has formed a place in the church of his native village. With regard to the window itself, it is an interesting specimen of church architecture in the Gothic decorated style the stone for which being obtained from Graig quarry, near Denbigh. The glass is painted or stained in rich colours, representing scenes in sacred history, chiefly in the lives of four of the Apostles. The window has an elegant appearance, and is a handsome addition to the edifice. It is a pleasure of no ordinary kind to visit a quiet rural spot like Nantglyn, to examine its church, and to survey its pleasant surroundings. The church, which is now made more becoming and appropriate for its holy purpose, stands in a con- venient situation in the village which is situate in a pretty Vale, away from the hum and bustle of busy life, surrounded by scenery of a varied and agreeable description.

A. long argument took place between Mr. Davies and the Bench as to whether he could under the Act of Parliament produce evidence as to the facts or only to shew that, complainant was acting from malice, after which Mr. Davies addressed the Bench at great length to shew that complainant had so altered a party wall as to damage defendant's property, and that the latter was only, interfering to protect his own property.
