THE NEWPORT GUARDIANS AND THE OVERSEERS. AttheN ewportcuuuty police-court, on Saturday, half a dozen overseers of pan .-lies comprised in the Newport Union were suminonei at the instance of the Newport Guardians for not paying calls due from their respective parishes, layied for poor-law purposes. This action bad been taken as the result of numerous complaints made a: meetings of the board of overseers being in default, and also because the guardians' account with the bankers lias been overdrawn. Four of the cases were struck out because the money had been paid, but the overseers of Wilerick and Machen Lower were not included in this arrange- ment. Mr Thompson appeared for Messrs Geo. Young and David Lewis, of Machen, and Mr David James for Messrs 1. Lawrence and William Roberts, of Wilerick. Both produced bankers' receipts, showing illlt the money for which tkey were summoned had been paid in the month of November.—Mr Woollett: This is very irregular. (To Mr Thompson) It is a great pity you should be brought here. It i bad eiioiigli to Ú sum- mohed here at all, but to be summoned when the money has been paid long ago is another matter. —The bench dismissed both cases, with costs against tne guardians, iu Mr Thompson's case awarding 10s. Subsequently Mr Downing Evans, clerk to the board of guardians, appeared before the bench, and was informed of what liM taken p ace, Mr Woollett repenting his remark that there had bee a great irregularity. Mr Evans said it was extraordinary that when he took the treasurer a list of unpaid calls, those which had been paid were not pointed out. a The overseers of Henllis were also summoned, but Mr James Baker did• not appear on their behalf until the close of the court. It was explained by Mr Baker that two calls of ;£11 and £lOó had 1.(, been codected owing to his* being 1. bench pointed out that the business oi the board of guardians would c jine to a dead- lock without funds, and ordered the money to be paid in a fortnight
