DENBIGH. GAME LICENCES.—In consequence of frauds having been practised by parties obtaining and shooting under wrong licences, the Board of Inland II evenue 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. Tumour (Mayor), Dr. Pierce, R. Owen, Esq., Lleweni; and R. Lloyd Williams, Esq. Obstructing the Hiyhwlty.-lr. Griffith, jun., 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 Berioup 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 Puõlíc-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 25tli 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. Kostron, thfj landlord and landlady, were sworn, and after hearing their evidence, The Mayor severely rebuked them for having their premises o[:en 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 the regulation having reference to this subject, for the benefit of those publicans whom he saw in Court. Defendant was fined 13s. 6d., including coats. 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, bad 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.-Thomu 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 Williams appeared for the prose- cution, and Mr. Gold Edwards 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 Jhe Hawk and Buckle Inn, Vale-street, where they remained drinking for a few hours. They left the house, it would seem, wiihout quarreling. Ecl. ward Jones was in bed at 11 o'clock, but, shortly after- wards, Thomas Jones cried out in the 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 Jones, being rather intoxicated, jumped out of bed, and having pot his trowgew M, he went into. the street, where he was promptly met by The, Jones, who at once stripped himself to tight, k,man of the name of Darid Jones, nailor, interposed, and wdeavnur- ed to appease the foe* bat his neaoeable services were of no avail. Thomas Jones fetched Edward Jonea 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 had 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 managed to raise himself; he was, 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 aide of the h-ad and other contusions on the face. He is alse suffering from injury of the ribs on the right side and from the effects of a sympathetic fever. Four witnesses were examined on the part of the pro- secution, but owing to the absence of Edward Jones, who is still in a precarious state, Mr. Meredith Williams applied for and obtained an adjournment of the case till Friday, the 15th inat. Mr. Gold Edwards trusted their Worships would re- serve their opinion of the caae until all the evidence Oli both sides was adduced. He waa in a position to give a very different version of the affray.
