-----.-------_--BOROUGH PETTY…


BOROUGH PETTY SESSIONS. MONDAY.—Before the Mayor (Isaac Shone, Elq.) Charles Hughes, A. W. Edwards, E. M. Jones, J. C. Owen, and Thomas Rowland, Esqrs. INTOXICANT. Jonathan Jonet, Bwlchgwyn, was charged by P.C. McRae with being drunk in Hope-street on the previous Saturday night. Ordered to pay the expenses of his maintenance. TOTH OF THANKS TO THE MAYOR. Mr. Charles Hughes, at the conclusion of the busi- ness of the court, said it was a very pleasant custom, and not merely a matter of form, that they pass a vote of thanks to the Mayor on his resigning his office as chief magistrate. He was sure that the Bench and the Court would unite with him in a vote of thanks to Mr. Isaac Shone for the manner in which he had conducted the business of that Court. There was a peculiar cir- cumstance in connection with his resigning the office of Mayor, for with it he also resigned the office of Town Councillor. This, he thought, was a great pity, for in years to come Wrexham would be extremely proud of its retiring Mayor. He had much pleasure in proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Shone for his conduct in the chair of the chief magistrate during the past year. Mr. A. W. Edwards seconded the vote of thanks to Mr. Shone with great pleasure. He was sure Mr. Shone waa always ready to temper his justice with mercy. Mr. Allington Hughes, as Clerk, and Mr. Thomas Bury, on behalf of the legal profession practising in that Court, supported the vote of thanks. The Mayor, in response, said he was very much obliged to them for the vote of thanks, although he felt he did not deserve it. He had, during his time of sitting on that bench, tried to do his best to meet the justice of the various cases brought before him, and in this he was helped very much by his brother magis- trates, than whoin a more unbiassed and impartial bench of magistrates did not exist. His retirement from the Council would rest with the electors of the West Ward, but he hoped that he would still continue to be as useful a member of society as ever he was. There was no other business. TUBSDAT.—Before J. Beale and T. Rowland, Esq. THREATENING LANGUAGE. John Wardle was summoned by his mother for using threatening language to her on the previous evening. After hearing the evidence the magistrates bound him over in his own recognizances, and that of two sureties, to keep the peace for six months.
