He said the day had been an enjoyable one, and they had observed that the most innocent of creatures, such as the little birds and lambs, enjoyed themselves more than anything else. That day's en- joyment wouid do them good, would do the children good, and their health would benefit by it. He ad- mired seeing the children throw themselves so thoroughly into the competitions, and he hoped they would take a lesson from it to do well in whatever they uiidettook to do, to have regard to quality as well as quantity.

Witness closed the door after him,anri the defendant then deliberately turned round and put Jlia foot through the glass panel. Witness estimated the damage at 2s.-Defendsut, who did not appear, Vraj fined 15s including damages and coats. DRUNK: AND INC &PABLIC.-Ann Evans, of Bowling Green lAne, was charged by P.C. Jones with this coffence.-The constable stated that on the lith of urust he found the defendant lying on her ba3k, dead drunk in Broad Street. He had to get two men to take her home —Defendant, who became rather excited, made a rambling statement in her endeavour to justify her conduct, and said that she hoped and trusted that their Worships would look over the of. fence this once."—The Mayor said they would take a lenient view of the case, and adjourn it for a month to see how defendant behaved herself. DRUNK AND USING OBSCENE LANGUAGE.—James Thomas, Plantation, Guilsfield, was charged by P.C.

THE PROPOSED RE-ARRANGEMENTS OF THE ASSISES. Mr D. P. OYeu aakecl the Mayor it his attention had been called to an ordei of the Privy Council changing the place for the holding of the Mont- gomeryahire Assizes. He thought it would be ad- visible for the mayoia of the different boroughs to lQeet aDd confer on the matter. Newtown was not a municipal but a parliamentary borough, and Welah. pool was the only borough in the countj which held « commission. It imid be lowering the dignity of the magistrates and of the .town to change the pres- ent arrangement. At Newtown they had no accom- modation for the holding of two Courts, and though lie hoped two Courts would never be necessary in Montgomeryshire, at Welahpool they had room for three Courts if necessary. He also referred to the difficulty persons would have in travelling from re- mote parts of the county to Newtown, and said Welshpool was in a position which gave the magis- trates who wished to meet the Judge of Astize ft Mr chance of doing so. He thought the Mayors should bring the matter before the Town Councils, and that the County and Borough Magistrates might meet and frame a petition to the Lord Chancellor. Newtown had on If been a. Quarter Sessions town since 1831, while at Walsh pool Quarter Searions had been held from time immemorial.-IU Mayor said in regard to the corporation, a memorial was being. fnuned, and would be brought before the next meeting. He sug- gested that the magistrates and Council should meet together to eonaider what steps should be adopted. It was a question of vital importance to the inhabi- tants of Welshpool, and to a great extent, to the county as well. It was also a queation of the con- venience of magiatratia, and the change would in- volve a material addition to the coat of the county.— Mr Owen said he thought the remonstrance from the Corporation should be separate. He did not aee why the magistrates should ally themselves with the Council.—It was decided to discuss the matter at the next Court, and to move the various oounty authorities in the matter. LICENSING. At the annual licensing session held at noon before the same magistrates, Deputy-Chief Constable Crowden presented his report, which was as follows: — Gentlemen,—I beg to report for your information that there are 41 licensed persons to sell all kinds of intoxicating liquors on and off the premises, 35 full Ii. >nses, two beer, and four off licensee. The whole have been satisfactorily conducted during the year, And there is no objection to the renewal of either. During the year 141 persons were brought before this Court for drunkenness and convicted, being a decrease of six as compared with last year. Also the urinals ft re all oorrect."—The report was adopted and the re- newal of the licenses granted.—The Mayor said that they were most pleased to find from the report that the public houses had been carried on in a satis- factory manner, and were also pleased to find that there had been a decrease in drunkenness. He stated tha.t there had been certain remarks made by the Standing Joint Committee of the County Council with regard to drunken people being supplied with intoxi. cants. He would call upon the Clerk to read the first resolution passed at their last meeting.—The Clerk re id the resolution which was as follows In view of the facilities offered to persons under the influence ot drink to obtain supplies, special instructions be iiciied by the police throughout the county to take the necessary steps to enforce the law against all persons guilty of supplying intoxicating liquors to those inebriated."

There was no enclosure around the trees as in an ordinary orchard.-Ellen Davies, wife of William Davies, labourer, of Hill Cottages, said on the 15th August she was at Cwminkin, when she observed Mrs Howell up a plum tree, shaking the boughs. Tee other woman was standing underneath the tree, pi sking up the fruit from the ground. Both defendants were carrying baskets, and in witnees'a opinion both had about three quarts of plums each.- Mary Brown, wife of William Brown, labourer, of Bill Cottages, corroborated.-Hughes aeked the Bench to deal leniently with her. She was a poor widow and had no one to give her a penny in fact, she could barely get a bit of meat. It was untrue to aay she had three quarts. She had ahout a *'La'porth (Ianphter). Howell said they had been out mushrooming," and coming up to the plum trees, they thought they would be doing no harm by taking a few of them.—The Chairman said that Howell had been previously convicted, and as he understood from prosecutor that he only wished to stop itvtse petty offeucc-a, they would take a mild view of the case, and fine Howell 3a 6d including costs, and Hnghes 2s 6d; in default 7 days.-Hughes stated that she had no money and could not pay, after which declaration she attempted to pass out of Court.—P.C. Price informed the lady that if she did not pay sfce would have to spend seven days in prison.— Ultimately an application was made to the Bench to allow time for payment, and a fortnight was grante,d.-Hughes: This is the first time I ever been in disgrace, and I'll take jolly good care that when I get out of this I don't come afore you gentlemen again (laughterl.-Col. Harrison: It is having the effect on you that is desired. A BATCH OF SCHOOL CASES.—William Lloyd, Margaret Davies, and William Gardiner, of Todleth, Churchstoke, were summoned for not sending their children regularly to school. There were two summonses against Gardiner and Davies.—Mr R. Tomley, school attendance officer, proved the cases, and fines of Is and 48 costs were inflicted in each cafe. On hearing. the decision of the Bench Mrs Gardiner vehemently asserted her intention to refuse to pay, on the ground that one of her children was ill, and that Dr. Roberts had given instructions for it to be detained at home. Tne other child was hit on bead at school, and in consequence was deaf.—Mr Burd pointed out that he had seen the child, supposed to be ill, playing continually in the road.—Mrs Gardiner: I shan't pay one farthing.—Mr Burd: W ell, then, you may try the experiment of a week in Shrewsbury goai.—Mra Gardiner: I shan't pay. This sentiment she repeated in shrill tones as she passed out of the Court. LICENSING BUSINESS.-With respect to the re- newal of licenses in the borough of Montgomery, Deputy Chief Constable Crowden reported that the number of licensed houses was nine. The whole had been conducted in a satisfactory manner during the past year, and no objection could be urged against their renewal.—In regard to the county petty sessional district of Montgomery, Mr Crowden's report stated there were five fully licensed houses. They had also been satisfactorily conduoted, and he no objection to the renewal of licenses. Four persons had been summoned before tha Court for dimuken- Jleii" an I uonvic:iop8 obtained in each ame.

NEWTOWN POLICE COURT,— THURSDAY. Before Hugh Lewis, Esq. (chairman), and Capt. E. Pryce-Jones. ASSAULTING HIS WIFE.-Edwin Llewelyn Jones, wood carver, Kerry-road, was brought up in custody and charged with assaulting bis wife on the previous day.—Complainant stated that her husband on Tuesday night came into the bedroom. He stood over her head, and swore he would knock the teeth out of her mouth. On Wednesday he came home, and because his dinner did not snit him, he used very abusive language. She was afraid of him, and sought refuge upstairs, where he followed her, and struck her with his fist several times, on account of which she had been under medical treatment. When asked what he had to say in answer to the charge, prisoner made a statement, and then took off his coat displaying a large bruise on hia arm, which he said his wife had caused by beating him. The wife admitted striking prisoner with a stick in self defence, but said that she did not beat him.—The magistrates, after a short consultation, fined prisoner 16s, including costs, or in default seven days' im- prisonment. He was also bound over in the sum of X5 to keep the peace for six months.
A whip was sent out prior to last Tuesday's debate to all probable sympathisers with the Shrewsbury charter. It was interesting to observe Mr Kenyon's name amongst tha subscribers to that appeal. Sir Prye Pryce-Jones declined to allow his name to be used for the purpose. THE CLERICAL CANVASS.—A special 'meeting of the Public Petitions Committee was held on Wednes- day to reconsider the decision arrived at last week in respect of the charges brought by Mr Lloyd George against the Suspensory Bill petitions. Sir Charles Dalrymple was in the chair, and made a long state- ment as to his views upon the subject. He informed the Committee that after carefully scanning the Pwllheli petition he had come to the conclusion that gioas irregularities had been perpetrated. Mr Lloyd Gecrge submitted to the Committee a few specimens of the misrepresentations made by Church canvassers all over the country, and presented translations of of letters received by Welsh members from constitu- enti of theirs who had been misled into signing the petitions by false statements aa to their purport. The chairman strongly deprecated the methods adop- ted by the Church canvassers to procure signatures, animadverting especially upon the Church petition from Pwllheli. As to this the evidence was over- whelming. At last the chairman, moved :—" That Select Committee on Public Petitions, having exam- ined certain petitions against the Established Church (Wale-) Bill, and having observed that in the case of the petition from Pwllheli presented on the 16th May last a number of signatures are in the handwriting of the same persons, and complaints having being made in regard to this and a considerable number of other petitions from Wales that signatures have been obtained by means of misrepresentation, have decided to recommend to the House that the order made 16th May last that the said petition from Pwllheli do lie upon the table be read and discharged and that the petition be rejected' This report was subsequently presented to the House, and adopted after some convesation as to whether action ought not to be taken upon it. The sting of the report lies in the fact that Pwllheli is simplp made an example of, and that a grave imputation is cast upon the whole of the petitions by the Committee. It adds signifiance to the report that it was suggested by a high Tory end on of the leaders of the Establishment party in Scotland, and that it was accepted unanimously by a body three-fourth* of whose members are Unionist. r"

Bowen, E. Davies, W. Ashton, Geo. M. Benbow, and D. Rees. The Clerk informed the Board that it was necessary to appoint a chairman and vice-chair- man for the coming year.—Mr Ed. Davies appro- priately referred to the death of the late Chairman tAlderman Thomas), and proposed Mr E. Bowen be appointed chairman; Mr G. M. Benbow seconded, and it was carried unanimously. Mr Ed. Davies was then elected vice-chairman, and Mr J. Davies as celk., orphans, INDEED !—A painfully sudden death occurred at Llanidloes on Saturday, 26th August. It appears that an invalid woman named Catherine Gittins was subject to attacks of coughing, and had been ailing for a long time. She went to bed as usual on Sunday night, and, according to the evidence of the medical man, she was taken with a fit of coughing, rupturing one of the blood vessels of the lungs. An inquest was held on Tuesday last at the Pjlice Court, Llanidloes, before the Borough Coroner, Mr R. Williams, and a jury over whom Mr John Parker was foreman.—Catherine Lloyd, mother of the deceased, stated that her daughter was about 37 years of age, and was the wife of a collier named Zeuhariah Gittrns.

Witness held her head up until she died which took place in a few minutes. Deceased addressed witness by her name, and said, My poor little children will be orphans."—Mary Gittins, daughter of the deceased, said she was sleeping in the same room as her mother on the Saturday night.

He had not been attending her previously. There was a good deal of bright and frothy blood in a ba-rin beside the bed, and there was some alao oozing from her mouth. Witness judged from the appearance 01 the blood that it came from the lungs, and was the result of a mpture of a blood vessel in the lungs The deceased was very emaciated, and appeared to have been au invalid for some time. In his opinion death was due to loss of blood, and the consequent shock caused thereby. The jury returned a verdict that death was due to rupture of one of the blood veasels of the lungs.

During the last nine weeks very successful mission services have been held throughout the circuit by Mr S. C. Zuras, of Athena.

His lecture on The suffer- ings of the Christians of the Island of Crete, and the efforts for their union with the mother country." has also been much enjoyed. During the hour and a half which the lecture occupied the audiences were held epellbound, and their sympathy elicited by the thriti- ing account of the sufferings of the Greek Christians.

The visitors going in to bat first failed to do anything against the bowling of Hart and Yearsley, the former's analysis reading 5 wickets for 11 runs. and Ye iriley's 4 for 12. The fielding of the home team was more brilliant than usual. The home eleven fared little better than their opponents, and 6 wickets went down for 10 rnna. It looked as if the visitors score would not be equalled. Pugh and Davie&, however, played up in one form, the veteran making a useful 13 not out. In the second innings Mr Coroett's XI oompiled 40. Hart was again in splendid form with the leather, and accompJiehed the hat tries, and once again proved himself a dangeraus trundler. Yeareley seemed also well on the spot. Lewis, the energetic secretary, made the winning hit for the home team, and they won the match by eight wick-ta. Mr Corbett's XI.

FOOTBALL. NEWTOWN V. SHREWSBURY TOWN. The enthusiasm which is awakened in the minds of young and old on the commencement of the football season was fully exemplified on Saturday afternoon, when the Newtown team met Shrewsbury Town. It is a curious coincidence that the Newtown lads should have been diawn to meet this year in their first match of the Shropshire League the team which met them at the end of laat season in the final struggle for the championship. That being the case tile interest created in the contest was doabled. and long before the whistle blew the Cunnings" presented a lively appearance. Not a few of th3 supoorte-s of the home team felt that the issui itsted in the balance, oonsidering-al though the vifriu.ra were beaten in the final round—that they were formidable rivals. All doubts and fears wera speedily stilled on the ball being started, it being evident to all observers that the champions had &a ea-y tllk before them. Worthington has taken the place of 0 iver Taylor, who is not disposed to play thia season, and he ia to be congratulated upon the efficient, manner in which he acquitted himself at ba ;k. Towmend, his compaDion, secured the Dlaudits of his friends by giving ocular proof that his legs ha 1 not lost their cunning, and the form shown by Rees, Chapman and Tucker was sufficient cause to inspire hopes of a prosperous season. W. E. Pryoe- Jones and A. W. Whalley worked hard and well, the former's combination with his brother, A. W. Pryce- Jones, centre-forward, being especially worthy of commendation. W. Parry and W. Morgan on the left wing played a conspicuous part in 1he victory, the fine runs of the former up the hill being lustily cheered. Edwards, the custodian of the goai, had but little to do, except to enjoy the spectacle of his brethren score point after point, but ho may be safely left to give a good account of his abilities when next Newtown meet a stronger eleven. Newtown won the tosa and kicked up the bill. The ball was neatly passed by W. Bliss to the right wing, when Urowther in evading Rees, kicked the ball out. Rses threw in, a similar result following; but on Pa.' ry getting possession he passed to Whalley, and amid great cheering, the ball was sent between the po^ts. On re-atarling, the leather was again forced into the Shrewsbury territory by A. W. Pryce-Jones, WHO kicked to Tucker. By dint of fine passing between the last named and Morgan, another point was notched from the foot of Tucker. The visitors then ran the ball down the right wing, but the rush was unserviceable as the referee's whistle blew for a foul, and immediately afterwards A. W. Pryce-Jones was needlessly knocked down. This delayed the game for a few minutes, but immediately after resumption a corner fell to Newtown. Nothing came of the advantage, and Luther and Bliss getting possession took the ball up the field. Chapman relieved and passed to A. W. Pryce-Jones, who sent in a hot shot, the goal keeper having to throw behind. Barrett then made a good run, and passing to W. Bliss, the home goal was endangered. Townsend cleared by hap kiok. and Whalley passed to Jaia col- J league, who centred. In this manner the leather was skilfully guided down the fieid, until W. E. Pryce. Jones sent up another cheer byadciing another goal. A corner immediately followed, and by good play om the part of Barrett, Bliss and Luther, Shrewsbury, had a grand opening. W; Bliss, who had charge of the ball, kicked wild.' The home team chevied the leather down field, and Morgan passed to Parry. The latter and his opponent, H. Bliss, however, amused themselves and the company by the energetic charges they made at each other, fully a dozen yards before they reached the ball. Shrewsbury had the throw in. and Barrett sent it to W. Bliss, who was disposseued by Chapman. The same player did fine work, and took the ball up to the back line, from whence bft kicked oyer the bar. Immediately afterwards Morgan kicked a goal which was given off-side. From the kick the visitors' right wing took the ball smartly along the ground, and Luther, evading Wor- thington, shot for goal, but sent behind. Give andtftkft play ensued, when Newtown again ptessed, and the Shrewsbury goalkeeper, who had from the commenoa- ment of the game showed splendid defence, waft deservedly applauded for smart work. The home centre kicked over, but immediately after Morgan had the satisfaction of placing a further goal to the credit of his side. Nothing exceptional occurred until the whistle blew*, except that Gosson missed so easy chance of scoring. On re-starting, the visitors showed that the inter- val had considerably refreshed them, and while adding to them, the vigour of the Newtown team had likewise been replenished. A goal was obtained within ten minutes of starting. A corner shortly afterwards fell to Shrewsbury, but Whalley obtained Eossession and passed to his colleague, who again ad the bad luck to kick over. The ball was lacked off, but as quickly returned and banged through by Whalley. From this point to the call of time the play was of a one-sided character, Newtown doing almost precisely as they wished, and when the whistle blew bad secured a brilliant vietory by 10 goals to nothing.

LLANFYLLIH; BOARD OF GUARDIANS, Thursday.—Present: Mr Evan Evars, chairman, Mr William Roberts, vice- (chairman, Messrs. C. R. Jones, and John Joneft- ex-offioio), John Jones, Guilsfield, John Syle, ltobt., K chards, T. ltoheris, David Price, Evan Roberts, J. Thompson Williams, Robert Roberts, E'ward Humphreys, J. M. Jones, Chalries Jon, a, and Bt-nja- min Beddoes, &c., and Mr Bircbarn, Local Govern- ment Bo-ird Inspector. Mr Birchsitn drew attention to the report he had ont.^red in the Visitors' Book last year, re Martha. Williams, recommending that something should be done with respect to getting her into an asylum or a home where she might be taught. It was decided that inquiries be made reo apeoting the charges at different hompft for such per- sons.-A letter was received ftom the Rev. R. Trevor Owen, stating that the rate for the pariah of Lian- gedwyn had not yet been been made on account of one of the overseers having lately died. The Board decided to allow the Assistant Overseer further time to pay the call.—An application for the office of porter and tailor was rec(ived from Mr William Evana, Llanymynech. His testimonials presented at the last Board were again read, and Evans, who was called in, said he was willing to undertake the duties at once if appointed. <Mr Beddoes, upon being asked if he knew anything about the applicant, said he knew him well and thought he was a quiet tidy man.—Mr Robert Richards proposed that Evans be appointed as porter and tailor, this was seconded by Mr J. M. Jones and carried.—Mr Bircham then read thq resolution passed at the last Board meeting with reference tn conduct of the clerk, and said that he had been sent down by the Local Government Board at the request of the Guardians, and he asked to have the whole facts of the case laid before him, so that he m!gbt report to his Board. He was rather surprised that the Clerk was not present. Ho (Mr Bircham) thought the Local Government Board would require to be made acquainted with the opinion of the Board of Guardians as a body on the case, and he considered therefore the members would be more free to express themselves if the Press was not represented. Mr C. R. Jones suggested the whole matter be discussed in Committee, which was agreed to.
