THE CLERICAL SCANDAL AT PRESTEIGN. The Charge not Proved. Popular Enthusiasm at the Result. On Thursday the Ecclesiastical Commission, with Dr. Tristram, Chancellor of the Diocese or Hereford, in the chair, resumed their inquiry, for the third day, at Presteign, into the charges of drunkenness preferred by the Clerk of the Peace for Radnorshire against his son-in-law, the Rev. J. Davies. curate of Presteign. The Rector of the parish (Dean West) was first called by the promoter, and being questioned denied that lie ever saw Mr Davies the worse for drink, or acting otherwise than as a sober and consistent Christian man, and he added that the rev. gentlelnau was the best curate he ever had. About a dozen witnesses were called for the defence, and all swore the same thing, several also directly negativing the testimony of complainant's witnesses alleging specific instances of drunken- ness. The Rev. J. Davies was himself sworn, and denied all the charges in toto. At this stage Mr Stephens' solicitor said he did not propose to carry the case any further, and Dr Tristram formally declared that none of the charges were proved, a result which was received with great enthusiasm, and both Mr and Mrs Davies were driven in a carnage from the hotel to their lodgings.
