I DENBIGH. I GAME LICENCES.—In consequence of frauds having been practised by parties obtaining and shooting under wrong licences, the Board of Inland Hevenue have adopted and issued to their officers a special form of re- quisition, to be filled up and signed by every person applying for general game licenses, and also for game- keepers' licenses. It will therefore be necessary that every person, in future, requiring a licence, either for himself or his keeper, should personally attend upon the officer granting such licences, to fill up and sign such requisition before the licence can issue. BOROUGH POLICE COURT, Monday, July 4-Before Dr. Turnour (Mayor), Dr. Pierce, R. Owen, Esq., Lleweni; and R. Lloyd Williams, Esq. Obstructing the Highway.—Mr. Griffith, j'm., watch- maker, was charged by P.S. Davies with having left a box in the street, and thereby obstructing the thorough- fare. Mr. Louis prosecuted, and stated that the box in question had caused serious injury to a young man, who was thrown off his horse in passing it. The father of the young man appeared in Court, and said his son was not able to leave home in consequence of the injury received. Defendant was fined 12s., including costs. Refusing to Quit a Public-house.-jas. Anwyl, Lawnt, was charged by P.S. Davies with being drunk, and re- fusing to quit the Talbot Inn, when requested by him and the landlady, at 12 o'clock on Saturday night, the 25th ult. Mr. Louis prosecuted. The defendant denied the charge, and said that he was on the point of leaving the house when the police- man entered. Mr. and Mrs, Rostron, the landlord and landlady, were sworn, and after bearing their evidence, The Mayor severely rebuked them for having their premises olien at 12 o'clock at night. If the publicans paid more attention to their regulations, and especially the one enjoining them to close their houses at eleven o'clock every night, there would be less drunkenness and fighting in the town. He wished to warn the publicans that if they were convicted of the offence of neglecting to close their premises at the proper hour, they would very probably be deprived of their licenses. His Worship read tho regulation having reference to this subject, for the benefit of those publicans whom he saw in Court. Defendant was fined 13s. 6d., including costs. Nuisance.-John Hughes, Postoffice lane, was sum- moned by P.S. Davies for permitting a nuisance to remain on his premises, which was injurious to the ge. neral health. Mr. J. Meredith Williams prosecuted. Defendant was ordered to pay the costs, and remove the nuisance forthwith. A Female Quarrel.- Harriet Williams, Henllan-street, charged her neighbour, Sarah Murray, with assaulting her, on the 29th ult. It was evident that a good deal of bad blood existed between these parties, judging from the warm and ex- cited manner in which they both represented their grievances. Their tempers rose to a high pitch in Court and their tongues clammered away like wild- fire. Defendant, it appeared, had dashed a canfull of cold water into complainant's face on this occasion, which naturally excited her anger, and led her to seek the pro- tection of the law. Fined 9s. 6d., including costs. The Fight in Middle Lane.-Thomas Jones, Edward Lewis, and Hugh Lewis, were brought up on remand charged with having unlawfully and maliciously abused, wounded, and ill-treated Edward Jones, on Saturday night, the 25th ult., in Middle Lane. Mr. J. Meredith Will o appeared for the prose- cution, and Mr. Gold tt?,7 defended the pri- soners. The parties, we understand, reside in the same neigh- bourhood, and have not been on friendly terms for some time past. On the Saturday night in question, they met together at the Hawk and Buckle Inn, Vale-street, where they remained drinking for a few hours. They left the house, it would seem, without quarreling. Ed- ward Jones was in bed at 11 o'clock, but, shortly after- wards, Thomas Jones cried out in tl)e street in a loud and threatening voice—" Where's Ned Jones Here's the man that'll fight him Upon hearing this chal- lenge, Edward Jonee, being rather intoxicated, jumped out of bed, and having put his trowsers on, he went into the street, where be was promptly met by Thoe. Jones, who at once stripped himself to fight, A man of the name of David Jones, nailor, interposed, and endeavour- ed to appease the foes but his peaceable services were of no avail. Thomas Jones fetched Edward Jones a ter- rible blow, which felled him to the ground. David Jones then attacked Thomas Jones, in whose hand he found a piece of iron, with which it is supposed Edward Jones p ht? been struck down. The affray now wore a fierce aspect Edward Lewis and Hugh Lewis aided Thomas Jones against David Jones and the fallen man, who never manaed to raise himself; he WM, we presume, most brutally punished whilst lying prostrate in a gut- ter. Dr. Pierce Williams described his injuries thusSe- veral wounds on the head; the eyes much swollen and discoloured; an incised wound on the right eye-lid a lacerated wound above the right eye, on the side of the head and other dlnturtons on the face. He is also suffering from injury of the ribs on the right side aad from the effects of a sympathetic feTer. Four witnesses were examined on the part of the pro- sedition, but owing to the absence of Edward Joues, who is still in a precarious state, Mr. Meredith Williams mnlied for and ohtained an adjournment of the case till Friday, the 15th inst. Mr. Gold Edwards trusted their Worships would re- serve their opinion of the case until all the evidence on both sides was adduced. He was in a position to give t very different version of the affray.
