William Griffith.—This was a com- plaint against the defendant for having passed through the Bodvean Turnpike Gate on the 4th ult., with a thrashing machine propelled by steam power, of which the defendant was ownel, without having paid the toll. The case bad been adjourned from last Petty Sessions, the defence being that no toll was payable on the ground that it was exempt by virtue of a recent Act of Parli, ment, and a case having been sent for'the opinion of the Editors of the Justice of the Peace, the following is a copy of their opinion:— The above case appears to us to be on all fours with Reg. v. Matty, 22, J P. 575.—In that case the steam thrashing n-aciiine was drawn by horses, and both were going along a Turnpike Road to a farm, to be employed there in thrashing corn, and the Court of Queen's Bench held that as the steam engine was to be employed to work the thrashing machine, it must be considered as part of the thrashing machine, and therefore free from toll." The Bench dismissed the case. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The usual fortnightly meet- ing of this Board was held on Thursday week. Present— Wm Watkins, Esq., presiding chairman, and Mr. Rd.
