NORTHWICH. J BAND AND THEIR BANDMASTER.—On Monday at the County Court, before his Honour Judge Bovven Rowlands, the representatives of the band of the, 2nd Cheshire Volunteers brought an action against Thomas Sadler, until recently the bandmaster, for the recovery of a cornet, music I stand, and music books, or in the alternative SU 10s. damages.—The case for the plaintiffs was that the defendant and other members of the band absented themselves on practice nights and commenced play- ing at dances. On this a resolution was passed calling upon them to re!?i&-n and to return their calling upon them to res'g-n and to return their servant of the band, but he contended that he had an equal share in all the property of the hand. and that before he surrendered anything at all the instruments. &c must be sold and the proceeds divided.—The plaintiffs contended that the insti u- ments, &c., had been largely raised by public sub- scription, and that defendant had no right whatever to any portion of the property.-His Honour made an order for the return of the instrument and other things, the liberty of the action generally being adjourned to enable the defendant to formulate a counter claim for wrongful dismissal, &e. JUDGE BOWEX-ROWLANDS AND THE POXY.-At Northwich County Court on Monday, before His Honour Judge Bowen-Rowlands, Thos. Swain, a Chohnondeston tailor, claimed from Mr. and Mrs. Charles Rigby, shopkeepers, of Winsford, the sum of £6 8s. as the balance of the purchase money of a pony sold by the plaintiff. Plaintiff stated that Mrs. Rig-by agreed to grive him Es 10s., and paid him 2s. on account. The next morning the pony was delivered, but defendant returned it, and, as plaintiff's son-in-law would not take it in, it wandered in the fields.—Defendant's etory was that Mrs. Rigby. who knew nothing whatever about horses, paid 2s. on account in order that her husband might approve or otherwise. When she saw her husband he informed her that on no account was she to have any transaction with I Swain. The next morning the pony wa? fastened 1 1 to their door, although the previous night Mrs. ) Rierbv had taken a message to plaintiffs daughter to the effect that they would not have the animal. Defendants descried the pony as absolutely worth, I)e f en d a,it,? (iescr i l t ,eJ ( I l ie t r" r i)olly an absolute less.—P-C. Young said the pony was an absolute wreck standing on three legs. His own impression was that 10s. would have been an ample price for it. (Laughter) —His Honour said it could only by courtesy be called a pony at all and it was valuable for no purpose whatever. It was said that the pony was driven nine miles and w<is all right when sold, but one could only imagine that such a sudden catastrophe as must have attended the pony to transform it into the condition described, was almost equal to that which had overwhelmed St. Pierre. He gave judgment for defendants with costs.
