The temperature during the past waek having much lowered, and some snow as well as rain having fallen, the sharp winds hive not yet had sufficient influence to dry the surface of the soil; so that field labours have been very partial, and we are now getting rather backward in spring planting. A few cem- plaints have reached us respecting the young wheat, and after the severe fluctuations experienced these might have been ex- pected but there is no damage but wh?t may be speedily re- pir?d by genial weather. The same causes that have brought delays here have also prevented the reopening of navigation on the continent, and though occasionally the ice in the northern shipping ports has sufficiently broken to allow the passage of steamers, sailing vessels will yet for some little time. be una available. The wheat trade has not been brisk, and though sev- eral markets have been firm for fine dry samples, the want of condition has been against business, nor is it likely to be anim- ated ti'l a really dry atmosphere prevails. The froit-bound state of the northern ports has generally kept them very dull, though fine qualities at Dantig are getting scarcer and keep very high prices As respects Paris, there is a large accumulation of flour, consequent upon recent free deliveries, and this has weighed upon the trade; but wheat in the provinces has been gradually hardening In value; and as stocks get short, there is a further prospect of advance In Belgium and Holland prices have been firm while the Spanish markets do not permit of ex. ports, but the repeated failures of the grain crops in Portugal appear to have brought the Government to the conviction that it would be serviceable to the country to permanently permit foreign import*- In the interior of Germany as well as in Swit- zerland, prices remain much as previously but the continued decline in the valne of gold at New York has, at last influenced breaditaft* ia ipite of the short deliveries, and we note a decline in flour of t) to 4 > eenfct per hrl. and of wheat of i to 5 cents per bush. Thit rediwrti^n, however, with a lower rate of exchange, makes very little <lilf«re»e« in the relative state of markets.

ROYAL COLLEGE or PHYSrCrANs, LONDON.—At a gene- ral meeting of the Fellows, held on Monday, the 20th of February, William Griffith, F. R.C.S.E., of Bailey- street, Oswestry, having duly undergone the necessary examination, and satisfied the College of his proficiency in the science and practice of medicine, surgery, and midwifery, was duly admitted to practice physic as li- centiate of the College. THE CHAIRMAN OF QUARTER SESSIONS, MERIONETH- SHIRE.—At a meeting of Magistrates held at Bala, on Tuesday last, Col. C. J. Tottenham, Plas Berwyn, Llan- dyailio, was unanimously appointed Chairman of the Quarter Sessions, Meriouethsliire, during the Shrievalty of R. Meredyth Richards, Esq, who, by reason of his filling the office of High Sheriff, is legally prevented from acting as the Chairman of Quarter Sessions. The above resolution was moved by IV. W. E. Wynne, Esq., M.P.. and was agreed to nem, con. We understand that another musical knight will be soon added to the somewhat limited list, at the head of which stands the name of the venerable Sir George Smart. The new recipient of the honour will be Mr. Brinley Richards, whose long and conscientious labours in his profession might, however, have escaped courtly recognition, had he not added to our national music the now familiar anthem for the heir-apparent.— Orchestra. PROFESSOR WHITWORTH'S ENTERTAINMENT.—A week or so ago it will be remembered that this talented and benevolent gentleman gave one of his pleasing and original entertainments in the Penrhyn Hall in this City, the proceeds of which, amounting to nearly £18, were handed over to the widow Jones, whose husband perished so lamentably on the Garuedd Llewelyn Moun- tain in the mouth of J auuary. In addition to this sum, we believe Mr. Whitworth gave to the poor woman a guinea out, of his own private purse. On Tuesday last he gave two entertainments in the Penrhyn Hall, one in the afternoon and another in the evening. The after- noon's entertainment was coufined exclusively to the children of the schools in Bangor-the National, British, and Wesleyan—who mustered in large numbers; whilst the children and inmates of the Union Workhouse were kindly admitted in free of expense. It is almost needless for us to say that the children enjoyed the fun with great gusto. In the evening, the Hall was crowded with a large and fashionable audience, it being in fact quite full; and many of the performances, especially those produced by chemical agency, caused roars of laughter" in all parts of the large company. The Pro- fessor was loudly cheered at the close of the entertain- ment. We understand that Mr. Whitmorth is willing to give his services gratis in aid of any charitable object in connection with Bausor and the neighbourhood. We may add that the Royal Penrhyn Band was in at. tendance, and, as usual, discoursed moat eloquent music."
BEAUMARIS. The Commission of Assize is to be opened here on Wednesday next, and the business to commence on Thursday morning. The calendar is extraordinarily heavy, comprising no fewer than thirteen prisoners, one of whom is charged with murder, two with manslaugh- ter, one with feloniously stabbing, another with sheep stealing. There are also, we believe several causes for trial. Business will probably last till Saturday evening. We understand that the old system of javelin men has been returned to-a manifest improvement upon the late police' practice.
BETHESDA. PROFESSOR WHITWORTH'S E -,iT P RTAINIIENT. -This re- ally talented artiste gave one of his popular entertain- ments in the Maiket Hall, Bethesda, on the evening of Monday last, the 13th instant. The proceeds were given to the Royal Bethesda Baud, who were present, and played a number of concerted pieces in the most masterly manner. We are glad to say that the hall was crowded to suffocation, and great numbers could not effect an entrance at all. The performance gave immense satisfaction, and the crowds vociferously cheer- ed Mr. Whitworth when he left, the place. The sum realized, we believe, amounted to about X15.
CARNARVON. THE NEW CHURCH.—We are sorry to find that a large debt still remains on this fine and beautiful church, which is quite an architectural ornament to the town, and which it is quite a disgrace to churchmen to permit to remain unpaid. We are glad, however, to find that steps are being taken to obtain the required sum, and that an influential committee has been ap- pointed for the express purpose. For this object, it has been decided to hold a grand musical Festival in Car- narvon very shortly, which doubtless wili realize a good sum; and during the ensuing summer there will be what is termed a Fancy Fair," which will comprise a Fruit and Flower Show, a liazaar, with sundry exhibitions of paintings, and rare articles of rirtit of every descrip- tion, and we trust that the friends of the Church will act in a liberal manner, aud do all they can to make the Fair"asattractiveand profitable as possible. The Fancy Fair is to be held within the walls of the hoary and celebrated Old Castle, which will certainly add great- ly to its attractiveness. There is some idea, too of having a concert on the evening of each day the fair continues, which, as the Welsh are a musical people, is sure to be well patronised. We sincerely hope these measures will be successful, for it is a disgrace that such a fine church should remain unpaid fur.
CORWEN. PLOUGHING MATCH.—The Denbighshire and Flint- shire Agricultural Society's ploughing match for the district of Edernion, took place in a field in the holding of W. Wagstaff, Esii., Hhug, on Thursday last, the 16th inst. There were nineteen competitors, and as a general rule, and judged altogether, theplotighingwas exceedingly good, and reflected much credit on the agriculturists of the Vale. The successful competitors were—1st prize, 40s., Mr. fadwaliulr Jones, Coudmelfa, near Llandrillo; 2nd prize, 20s., John Jones, Cornelrhedyu, near Corwen (brother to the winner of the first prize); 3rd prize, 10s, Mr. Robert Foulkes, sou oi .ilr. David Foulkes, Ty- uchaf, Tre'rddol, who also gained the third prize last year. The weather was extremely favourable, and a vast number of spectators assembled to witness the competition. The ploughing was over at about three o'clock in the afternoon, it having lasted four-and-a-half •

[It is with great pleasure we publish monthly the rain guage of these parts of Wales, so kindly supplied to us by Captain Matthew. The trouble and expense to him in obtaining the same must be considerable, so that the country is greatly indebted to him for the very interest- ing details, and for his efforts to assist in promoting this branch of science. Some of the results are curious, and would never have been credited if not proved by actual observations. For instance, the greatest fall of rain in the Snowdonian district is at Beddgelert, which ordina- rily doubles that at Portmadoc, the two places being only seven miles apart, whilst Portmadoc nearly doubles that which usually falls at Llanystumdwy, a village seven miles from the Port, on the north shore of the bay of Cardigan. Conway seems to be exempted from heavy rain for, whilst during the month the depth of rain which fell at Beddgelert was 7.66. and at Festinlog 7.35, at Conway it only reached 1.51. The least quantity, how- ever, fell at Llanfairynghornwy, in the Isle of Anglesey, where the rain guage only marked 1.21. We should strongly recommend those gentlemen who take an interest in atmospheric phenomena to purchase a work, just pub- lished by G, J. Symons, Esq., who has treated the sub- ject most elaborately. The book may be had of Mr. Edward Stanford, Charing Cross, London. -ED,N. W. C.]

Mr. Isaac Clarke, Ruthin, was appointed Crier of the Court, in place of Mr. F. F. Jones, deceased. FINANCE. The Treasurer's accounts were audited and passed. The Police accounts, having been duly examined, were also passed; and all bills against the County were ordered to be paid. A county rate of three farthings in the pound, and a police rate to the same amount, were made to meet the expenditure of the current quarter. THE LLANOOLLUN HIGHWAY BOARD. Colonel Tottenham, after making some pertinent re- marks, proposed a re-distribution of the waj-wardens in the Llangollen Highway District, and also an increase in their number, from 16 to 20. Mr. Sannbaoh seconded the motion. Mr. lticliarcis, solicitor, Jjlangollen, appeared on behalf of the applicants for the additional wardens—viz., the parishes of Llansilin and Llanrhaiadi -yn-inochuaut—as well as on behalf of the other parishes which wished a re- distribution of wardens. The Chairman—I suppose it is a matter of convenience to the District; and no one has been instructed to op- pose it. Mr. Richards—The parishes will bear all the expense of obtaining the desired alteration. After a short deliberation, it was agreed for the Dis- trict to be represented as follows ;—Llangollen, 2 instead of 4; Glyu Traiau, 2 instead of 1; Llantysilio, 2 instead of 1; Bryneglwys, Llansantffraid-glan-Ceiriog, Llanar- mon-Dyffi-yn-Ceiriog, .Vlynydd Mawr, Llangadwaladr, aud Llaugedwyn, 1 as before Llanrhaiadr-yn-moch- nant, 3 instead of 2; aud Llansilin, 5 instead of 2. To- tal, 20. INCREASE OF SALARIES. In consequence of increased duties, aud length of ser- vice, Mr. Jones, Ruthin, gaol surgeon, was allowed an increase of salary, from t52 to X70 per annum. In the unavoidable absence of Admiral Watling, Mr. Pandbach proposed ail increase in the salary of Inspector Hammonds, Llanrwst, from £ 75 to £ 10u per annum. Some difficulty was felt for awhile as to the legality of this increase, but, after careful consideration, the Court unanimously agreed to allow it. Mr. Sandbach spoke in very eulogistic terms of the efficiency aud good conduct of Inspector Hammonds, and pointed out the large size of his district as a cogent reason for the increase in his salary. On the motion of Mr. Brownlow Wynne, seconded by Mr. Sandbach, it was unanimously resolved to promote Inspector Owen, Abergele, from the second to the first rilllk of Inspector, with an increase of salary from £ 65 to £ 75 per annum, on account of long service and efficient conduct. On the motion of Mr. James Maurice, it was likewise unanimously agreed to allow a similar increase in the salary of another deserving olSeer—Sergeant Sheehan, of Ruthin, the chief constable's clerk.

Mr. Denmau, the chief constable, laid before the Court his general quarterly report, ending the 7th day of March, 1865, from which we quote the follow- ing :— /)t?«'<«?e O?etices.—Crimes committcd,21 persons apprehended, 22; discharged, 6; committed for trial, 16 crimes not traced, 4. Offences Determined Summarily.— Persons proceeded against, 23-1; discharged, 94; convicted, 140, 11 Petty Larcenies Determined under the Criminal JIIB- tice Act.— Persons proceeded against, 10; discharged, 4; convicted, 6. Value of Property Stolen ancl Recovei-e(I.-Stolen, £ 58 3s. 6d. recovered, zcl 7 8a. 9d.; not recovered, X40 14s. 9d. 1, Criiiiep and offences, as compared with the corre- sponding quarter last year, present the following result —Indictable oencl's, an increase of 4. In offences deter- mined summarily, a decrease of CO; and in the value of property stolen a decrease of JEC Us. llu. 234 persons were proceeded against summarily dur- ing the past qiwter, of whom 102 were lined, and 38 committed to gaol, as follows:—Assaults, 5; drunken- ness, 4; larceny, 7; offences against the game-laws, 4 ditto against the poor-laws, 2; servants and apprentices, 2; want of sureties, 1 vagrancy, 12 and other of- folice4, 1. Twenty-one indictable offences were reported during the past quarter, for which 22 persons were apprehend- ed, 6 of whom were discharged, and 16 committed for trial for the following ofleiioes-iiiurder, 1 larceny sim- ple, 9; larceny from the person, 2; receiving stolen goods, 1; obtaining by false pretences, 1; horse-stealing, 1; embezzlement, 1. "The crimea not traoed are-t ouet of larceny. The oases for trial at the Assess are, I regret to say, of a serious character. Of the 6 prisoners for trial, one is for murder, one for manslaughter, and four for arson. Notwithstanding, the country, I am happy to say, is in a qniet and peaceable state. a The vacancy caused by P.C. Thomas Williams, ip whom a gratuity was granted last quarter, has been filled up, and the strength of the force is f.gain com- plete." Mr. Browlow Wynne remarked that the Chief Consta- ble's Report did.t appear to be anything more than a statement of the crimes committed iu the county, which might be seen in the calendar the next day--uud not a report of the operations of the Police Force. Perhaps the law did not require a different report. Mr. Denman said he drew up his report? something similar to the way in which chief constables of other oounties drew theirs. SRLNUCN POLICEMEN. Mr. Brownlow Wynne (to Mr. Denman)—It is report- ed that two of your officers were unfit for duty through drunkenness on the last Abergele fair night—the very time of the year a policeman should be sober, because the place is visited by a number of rough quarrymen—I may say more desperate fellows do not exist. Mr. Denman said the officers had been reported to him. They were fined 5s., and warned that a repetition of the offence would cause their dismissal from the force. They had previously behaved themselves exceed- ingly well, and a charge of drunkenness had never before been brought against them. Mr. Brownlow Wynne-I am surprised to hear that. The reputation of the force in our district is at the very lowest ebb. Of course I cannot prove that the men are in the habit of getting drunk, but they are notoriously spoken of as bearing that character. Rev. T. Z. Davies-I ca-i speak with regard to one of them-Thomas Owen; I consider him to be an excellent officer-he is rather slow in the witness-box, but in other respects he has behaved very well, and I am sorry to hear of bis intoxication on the fair night in ques- tion. The Chairman-It is very disgraceful and mortifying to hear of policemen being drunk; and there has been a fault in not reporting these men before, if what Mr. B. Wynne states is correct. Mr. James Maurice-Whose place was it to report them ? Mr. Denman-Inspector Owen; and it would seem he has neglected his duty. The Chairman-After what has been said, I hope you will further investigate the matter. Mr. Denman—I shall do so. ABSENCE OF THE CHIEF CONSTABLE IS THE PETTY SES- SIONAL DISTRICTS. Mr. Brownlow Wynne, whilst speaking of the Aber- gele policemen, observed that it was a matter of general conversation that Mr. Denman was never seen at Aber- gele. It would be very desirable, in his opinion, to see him there occasionally, as thereby he would evince an interest in the place, and shew a disposition to assist the magistrates in the administration of justice. He only wondered how the Chief Constable, having such delight in his situation, could keep away throughout the year. The Chairman—At one time you were in the habit of attending Petty Sessions. Mr. Denman said he had extremely good officers in *1.. anH Hid not reouire close insnection. General Cartwright had told him that he had attended to too many small things, and advised him to put more respon- sibility on the Inspectors and Superintendents. Mr Brownlow Wynne thought Mr. Denman's argu- ment wrong in principle. The Chairman also remarked that the force could not be too closely inspected. The subject then dropped. THE COUNTY SURVEYORS REPORT. R. Lloyd Williams, Esq., county surveyor, read his report of the state of the county works. Baehe Mills Bridge,-The work at this bridge is pro- gressing satisfactorily, and had it not been for the very severe weather which we have had this winter, it would ere this have been completed. Pont Clwyd, Liandynnog.At the request of one or two of the Justices, I bring the widening of this bridge again before your notice. I can only repeat that I con- sider the parapets are much too low for safety, and the roadway is very inconveniently narrow. The bridge is by no means in a satisfactory state; many of the stones forming the ring of the arch having been so much worn bv the action of the water. Loggerheads Bridge.-This bridge was reported to be in a very dangerous state, in consequence of a dam hav- ing been made abutting upon the approaches by a min- ing company, on Mr. Cook's land. The Surveyor had written to the secretary of the company, requiring that the road and walls should be raised, and a proper cause- way constructed. In reply, he was told that the work would be attended to, as soon as the frosty weather was over. A fortnight ago, however, nothing had been done. The Surveyer asked for an order to put a quantity of large stones on one side of the foundation. The order was granted. Ruthin County Hall. —This Hall was described to be in a very dirty state, and the Surveyor suggested that he should advertise for tenders for cleaning and paint- ing it. Order of the Court—The necessary work to be done. Pont Ddol.-A.t the previous Quarter Sessions, the Sur- veyor reported that the Rhyl and District Water Works Company" proposed to take powers that would interfere with the approaches to the above-mentioned bridge. He 6ubsequently wrote to the Company's solicitor on the subject, and it was agreed to insert a clause in the Bill to insure the safety of the bridge, and its future main, tenance by the Company, as far as their works would interfere with the same. Thus the county was saved the expense and trouble of offering any opposition. Bedwell Bridge,-The promoters of the Wrexham, Mold, and Connah's Quay Railway" propose to carry a line of railway across the approaches to this bridge, on a level crossing. This will be exceedingly objectionable to the whole neighbourhood, and a memorial has been sent to Col. Yulland, in order that he may take this sub- ject into consideration, and report to Parliament the ne- cessity for a bridge instead of a level crossing at this point. Should this not have the desired effect, there was still a remedy by petition to the House of Lords. Order of the Court—Surveyor to make an estimate of the cost, and procure tenders for the work, and sub. mit them to Petty Sessions. Byarth Bridge.-Af ter a great deal of trouble, and in. numerable letters having been written on the subject of the above bridge, the Surveyor said he was glad to be able to report that he had at last made a satisfactory ar- rangement with Mr. Savin, who has agreed to give the county a piece of severance, or the value of it, and X20 in money, as his contribution to the expense of a new bridge. The Court was adjourned at 3 p.m. till the following day (Thursday) for THE TRIAL OF PRISONERS. I Magistrates on the Bench :-Thomas Hughes, Esq., chairman; John Price, Esq., Llanrhaiadr Hall; James Maurice, Esq., Itutliiii; H. R. Sandbach, Esq., Colonel Maddocks, W. D. W. Griffith, Esq., Garn, Capt. Price, R. F. Birch, Esq., P. H.Chambres, Esq., and Key. D. Roberts. The following gentlemen were sworn on THE OltAND JURY. Mr Samuel Sheaf, Denbigh, foreman Eilward x ngell, draper, ditto George Clarke, Love Line, ditto John Davies, Llainwen Ebenezer Davies, Bryn Llan Jaines Dickson, Pool Park Henry Grantham, Bodafon Henry Jones, Pemlyffryn George David .Morgan, Denbigh John Palmer, New Inn, ditto David Roberts, Pontritfith John ltoberts, Fox Hall Hugh iioberts, Park Lane, Denbigh Nathaniel Roberts, Rosa farm, ditto J. Robinson, steward of Asylum, ditto M. Turnour, Berth, Llanynys J T. Williams, draper, Denbigh I H, Hughes, Plas Uhambres Her Majesty's proclamation against vice and immora lity, cfc., having been read by the Clerk of the Peace, The learned Chairman delivered his charge to the Grand Jury. He was sorry to inform them that there was a large amount of business to be brought before them, and for that reason he would not detain them but for a very short time, Crime, he feared, was at a high rate in the county; the gaol was at present full, and most probably the prison would require shortly to be en- larged. There « ere fourteen cases on the calendar—all thefts of various descriptions, and he thoughtthey would have very little difficulty in dealing with them. Having made special allusion to two or three cases, he concluded by saying that the majority of offeuces in the calendar were attributable in some measure to the vice of drunk- enness, which, he considered, was a most lamentable fact. APPLICATION. I On the application of Mr. Swetenham, the recogni- zances of Robert Roberts, John Williams, and Edward I Robert, in the sum of £10 each, in the case of Robert Roberts, for niglit poaching, were estreated by order of the Court. I NO TRUE BILLS j Against Elizabeth Parry, Llanrwst, for receiving stolen I goods and Jane Hughes, for obtaining a pair of boots under false pretences, at Wrexham. ESCIIIPE or A PRISONER. I Mr. Ignatius Williams applied for a Bench warrant for the apprehension of John Jones, who had escaped from the custody of the police on the road from Wrexham to Ruthin gaol, on the 21st lIlt, He was charged with stealing a cloth coat, the property of Llewelyn Hughes, Esq. ¡ The warrant was ordered to be iuued. STEALING WEDDINO RINGS. I Margaret Dale, 33, hawker, and John Wilson, 37, hawker, pleaded not guilty to having, at Wrexham, on the 15th ult., stolen three gold wedding rings, value £2 lis., the goods of Thomas Hey wood. Mr. Ignatius Williams prosecuted, and Mr. Sweten- ham defended. Fred. H. Heywood, prosecutor's SOD, and Miss Noakes, identified the female prisoner, and gave evidence corre- sponding with the counsel's brief. Mr. Heywood identified two of the rings, and said the other-two were like the rings in his case in the shop. The Jury, after a short deliberation, convicted both prisoners, who were sentenced to 9calendar months, with hard labour. The female prisoner exclaimed-" I could fetch proof where I bought the rings." The male prisoner—" 1 have never been in prison be- fore I hope you will say less, sir." They were at once removed from the dock. I IITEALING A HORSB. I Benjamin Penlington, 28, butcher (out on bail), was indicted for having, at Wrexham, on the 5th of January, 186S, stolen one horse, valued at Sos., the property of Wm. Price. Mr. Trafford prosecuted, and Mr. Swetenham de- fended. Mr. Trafford stated that prosecutor attended Wrex- ham fair, on the 5th of January. He rode there on horseback—took his horse to the White Horse Inn, but the stables being thronged, the animal was led to a field near the house. In the afternoon he went to look after his horse, and found it had been taken from the field. Information was given of the missing horse to Inspector Lamb, and the animal was subsequently found at Whit- church, in the possession of a knacker" and horse- dealer, named Henry Marsh, to whom it had been sold for 10s. by the prisoner, who returned 6d. to the buyer. (Laughter.) Wm. Price, P.S. Martin, and Henry Marsh, Whit- church, having given evidence, Mr. Swetenham, in defence, said the horae was sold by mistake-a mistake which the prisoner certainly would rue for a long time. lie (the prisoner) had a horse very much like the prosecutor's horse, and being in a state of intoxication, it was easy for him to take one for the other. The Chairman summed up, and observed that adoubt had been thrown on the case on the part of the defence, and if the jury could conscientiously entertain that doubt, then it would be their duty to acquit the pri- soner. Verdict-Not Guilty. STEALING MONET. I John Tomhins, 30, labourer (out on bail), was charged I with having stolen X I 10s. in gold, and 10s. in silver, from the person of John Richards, miller, at Ruabon, on I the 17th of January last. Verdict-Not Guilty. A SON ROBBING HIS MOTHER. I David Jones, 27, slater and plasterer, pleaded guilty to having stolen, at Llanrwst, on the 6th instant, one piece of cotton print, one flannel petticoat, and three cotton bed sheets, the goods of Elizabeth Jones, his mother. Sentenced to three weeks' imprisonment, with hard labour, and one week's solitary confinement. STEALISO A COAT. I Daniel Sullivan, 38. a discharged soldier, was arraign- ed upon a charge of having, at Wrexham, on the 2nd December last, stolen one cloth over-coat, valued at B2 10s., the property of Thomas Bithell, confectioner, Ban- gor-is-y-coed. He was proved guilty, and sentenced to one mouth's imprisonment, with hard labour. EMBEZZLEMENT. I Robert Williams, 50. carter (out on bail) was indicted for having, in December last, fraudulently embezzled various sums of money whilst in the employ of Mr. John Bernard Murless, Wynnstay Arms, Wrexham. Verdict-Uuilty, Mr. Swetenham, on behalf of Mr. Eurlers, recom- mended the prisoner to the mercy of the Court, on the ground that he had previously been a good servant to him. The Chairman sentence1 the prisoner to six calendar months' imprisonment with hard labour, and remarked that the sentence would have been doubly heavy were it not for the recommendation of Mr. Murlers. STEALING POULTRY. John Hughes, 55, maltster, (formerly of Shrewsbury) pleaded not guilty to having, on the 23rd of January last, stolen two turkeya, four ducks, and four fowls, va- lued at Jel 148, the property of Mr. Joseph Bithell, Salusbury Park, near Wrexham. Verdict-Guilty. Sentence—Five years penal servitude. STEALING MONEY. I Ifin. Moore, 29, labourer, was tound guilty of having, at Wrexham, ou the 26th of Janurry last, stolen lOs" the money of Thomas Hughes, his employer. Sentence Twelve muut.he' imprisonment, with hard I abour. LARCENY. W. Davies, 18, labourer, was arraigned upon a charge of having, at Colwyn, on the 27th of August, stolen a watch, a steel chain, and a silk guard, valued at 16a. 4d., the property of Robert Jones. Verdict-Guilty. Sentence-Three months' imprisonment, with hard labour. STEALING A DONKEY AND CART. Win.

STEALING FROM THE PERSON. Joseph Hughes, 26, mason, was charged with having, on the 26th of January last, stolen from the person of John Spenser, zES 8s. and a pocket knife. Verdict—Not Guilty. STEALING FROM THE PERSONS. I Joseph Hushes, 26, mason, was charged with having, on the 26th of January last, stolen from the person of John Spencer JE3 8s. and a pocket-knife. Verdict-Not guilty. AFFILIATION1—APPEAL CASE. I I John Griffith, appellant, and Anne uooercs, respondent. —Mr. Swetenham appeared for the appellant, and bIr. 1. Williams for the reBpondent, Verdict for the appellant, aud the order was therefore quashed. The above case terminated the business of the sessions, after a sittiug of about ten hours. Iu consequence of the length to which our report of the Mer- ionethshire Assizes has extended, we have heen reluctantly com. pelied to cut down the above report at the last moment—the Murder case at Bala being of general and paramount importance.
gutpmal garlianwttt. HOUSE uF LORDS—THURSDAY. Lord STRATFORD DE KEDCLUTE called attention to the question of the boundary of Turkey and Persia, and complained that the negotiations commenced 20 years ago on the subject weie still incomplete, although the unsettled state of the matter caused constant bickerings between the two countries. He thought the house ought to be informed of the exact position of the ques- tion at the present time. Earl UOSSELL said be had reason to believe that the negotiations would be coinplets-I by the end of the pre- sent month. Earl of H ARROWBY complained of the inconvenience which the itevised Code occasioned by requiring that the grant for children under six years of age should de- pend upon the inspector's report of the general conduct of the school and the attendance on the day of exa- mination. Earl GRANVILLE said that the complaint was the re- sult of misapprehension, owing to a clerical error in the code. No change had been made in the system with respect to young children. HOUSE OF COMMONS—THURSDAY. Mr. (J. FOSTER reported that in the petitions pre- sented in support of the claim of Azeem jahto the title of Nawab of the Oarnatie many of the signatures were forgeries. .Mr. BOXHAM CARTER said that during his experience of 18 years as a member of the public petitions com- mittee, he had never known a gna'-erfiaudon the house than had been committed in this instance. The report was ordered to be laid on the table. In reply to Mr. O'lieiUv, the Marquis of HARTINGTOX said that since 1819 no order hail been issued directing recruiting officers not to enlist Irishmen or Koman Catholics for any branch of her Majesty s service. In reply to Sir W. Galloway, Mr. GIBSOX stated that the subject of communication oil railway trains would be investigated by the recently-appointed royal com- mission. In answer to a series of questtions, Mr. CARDWELL said that her Majesty's Government expected the Go- vernor of New Zealand to carry out to the letter the proclamation made on December 17, 1804 that no ad- vance had been made from the treasury to the colony of New Zealaucl since 1863; and that there had been a considerable increase in the contribution of the colony of the Mauritius towards its military expenditure, Mr. Treherne and Mr. Nevvdegate having complained of the effect of the Auglo-French treaty upon the ribbon trade of Coventry, Mr. GIBSON said that in a short time the French Government would roduce the duty on ribbons one half franc per cent ad valorem. Mr. D. GRIFFITHS elicited from Lord Palmerston the information that, so far as the Government was aware, no foroed labour was employed on the Suez Canal. The house then went into committee on the army estimates, and the Marquis of Hartington explained the chief alteratious proposed in the vowa.

LONDON SEED MARKET—UOSDVY. The business in seeds of all descriptions during the past week has been unusually small, the demand being delayed by the un- settled weather and the backward state of field operations. Red cloverseed, with limited stocks and small supplies, maintains its value steadily. White seed being in larger supply, is less firmly held. Trefoils, with small stocks and scanty supply of foreign seed, Is fully as dear. Spring tares, with improved sup- plies. have declined 2a to 4s from the late high rates.
