FUNERAL 4 OF THE ?? ?fM ?(M? ,$q. OF CAERYNWCH. On Tuesday last, the 4th inst., the mortal re- mains of the late RICHAIID RICHARDS, Esq., for upwards of 16 years Representative in Parliament of the County of Merioneth, and son of the Right Honble. Sir Richard Richards, Chief Baron of the Exchequer, were consigned to their final resting- place at St. Paul's, Bryncoedifor, a district Church in the parish of Dolgellau, erected and endowed by his niece, the Counters de Morella. The funeral was of a strictly private character, although at- tended from the family mansion by a few of the Tenants of the Estate, and afterwards, by permis- sion, joined at Pontnewydd, about 2 miles from the Churjh, by a line of carriages, followed on foot by the representatives of the several Aiding Socie- ties, and a great number of the respectable inha- bitants of Dolgellau and the surrounding country, desirous of paying their last tribute of respect to their lamented and respected friend and neighbour. The funeral service was read by Archdeacon White, and the body was interred in a vault prepared for its reception in the grave of the late Mrs. Richards, the beloved wife of the deceased. Of the late Mr. RICHARDS, it may be said, with great sincerity, that, in all the relations of life, he was exemplary. His discharge of the duties of distinguished and highly responsible offices was marked by the most careful regard for the inte- rests of those who had a claim upon his time and attention; while his impartiality, integrity, and love of justice, were among the most prominent features of his life. In the bosom of his family his kindness and sympathy for those about him will long be remembered with affection and grati- tude, and his cheerful, courteous, and amiable de- portment will endear his memory to a widely ex- tended circle of friends and acquaintances. He was a sincere aud faithful friend-a kind and good neighbour-and, in his many acts of charity and benevolence, judicious, discriminating, and unos- tentatious. His death was, latterly, not unexpected, -and, perhaps, least of all, by himself. He died, as he had lived, in the fear and love of God, and in the hope of a blessed resurrection to eternal life, through the merits of his Redeemer. Mr. RICHARDS was born at Caerynwch, em the 22nd of Sept., 1787; was educated at Westminster, and at Christ Church, Oxford, where he obt&ined classical honours; and, it is worthy of remark, that the five sons of Sir Richard Richards, who were members of that University, gained, between them, four first class, and two second class, degrees. He adopted the Bar as his profession, becoming a member of the Inner Temple. In 1814, he mar- ried Harriett, eldest daughter of Jonathan Den- nett, Ecq.; she died at Caerynwch in 1852. After successfully applying himself to his professional duties for about eight years, he was appointed Ac- countant-General, and Master of the Court of Ex- chequer, which responsible situations he continued to fill until, in the year 1841, he was nominated by Statute one of the Masters of the Court of Chancery. Mr. RICHARDS, on the retirement of Sir Robert Williames Vaughan, Bart, of Nannau, in 1836, was elected Representative in Parliament for Merion- ethshire, his native county, having sl18tainHl a con- test with Sir William Wynn, then Governor of Sandown Fort, in the Isle of Wight, when he polled a majority over his opponent of nearly 5 to 1. He continued to hold his seat in Parliament, uninter- ruptedly, till 1st of July, 1852, when advancing age induced him to retire. During his representa- tion of Merionethshire, Mr. RICHARDS was a con- sistent supporter of Conservative political views, and of the agricultural interest. He leaves one son and three daughters; of the latter, two are mar- ried, and are, resj>ectively, the wives of the Rev. Edmund W. Orlando Bridgeman, nephew of the Ear] of Bradford, and of the Hon. and Uev. Arthur G. Douglas, son of the late, and brother of the pre- sent, Earl of Morton. His son is Chairman of the Quarter Sessions of the County of Merioneth. [A notice of the funeral also appears in another part of onr paper, but we have thought it right to insert the above account, as it contains a brief memoir of the late Mr. Richards, who was universally held in high esteem.

BETHESDA. On account of several parties being sen-ed with sum- monses, respecting the dogs which they kept, and which were about to be taxed, about 100 were seen drowned in the river Ogwen during the past week, so that we can may, Bethesda has been cleared of one great nuisance. The Lord Bishop of Bangor, preached in Christ Church, Glanogwen, on Thursday evening, an account of which will be seen in our next; and also of a meeting of a social kind, on Owen Glyndwr's leaving the neighbour- hood. BEAUMARIS. I THE LITERARY INSTITUTE.—A lecture was delivered in connection with this ID8titute on Tuesday evening ?t at BeaumM? by Henry Barber, Esq., on The Antinuities and Curiositi?s of the Law." The at. tendance was large and highly respectable; and the au- dience throughout paid the closest attention to the speaker Dr. R. Brisco Owen occupied the chair, and at the elwe returned the thanks of the Institute and the audience to the lecturer. It has been our custom to give a sketch of the substance of these lectures, but the present one would only suffer greatly by such a process, as it merits the title of a perfectly well constructed es- say, of a very interesting description, full Jof history, replete with instruction, and abounding in quaint allu- sions to events illustrating those antiquities and curiosi- ties which were the staple of the subject. fr. Barber illustrated the lecture by a great number of ancient deeds and seals; black letter books; drawings from bras- Bes; &c., and, not least in interest, by a very admirable s,ime,i of writing done in 1860 by a townsman of our for this purpose. The intert with which these were passed from hand to hand and examined, and the tare wift which they were returned, as weU M tie care- ful attention paid to the" whole lecture, proves that the privilege of listening to so entertaining and instructive a speaker Was not thrown away upon the Beaumaris Insti- tute. It was announced that on that day fortnight Mr. Fisher would give a reading from the Pickwick Papers."
CONWAY. THE ST. GEORGE'S HARBOUR RAILWAY.—Owing to some cause, not publicly known, the traffic on the above line, which was announced by the December time-hills to continue as uun], was suspended from Saturday night up to Thursday morning. PRESENTATION.—On Monday evening last, a number of the brethren of Court "Conway Castle," (No. 1608) A.O.F., met at their court-room, at the Black Lion Inn, Conway, for the purpose of initiating John Salusbury, Esq., of Conway, (who had hitherto been connected with their fraternity in the capacity of medical attendant only) as a member of their institution; and of present- ing him also with a token of their regard for him per- sonally, and their appreciation of his services to the club. The testimonial consisted of an elegant Silver Snuff-box, manufactured by the celebrated Forester- artist G. Tutill, P.D.C.R., City Road, London. Within a richly-chased border on the lid of the box is the fol- lowing inscription:—"Presented to John Salusbury, Esq., M.D., by the officers and members of Court Conway Castle of the Ancient Order of Foresters, No. 1608." The presentation was made by Bro. Smith, whose com- plimentary address was duly responded to by Mr. Salus- bury. The evening was whiled out in the true spirit of Forestry, Several toasts were given by the Chairman, (Mr, Salusbury) and others; among which were the Press" and its representative, who were honoured with music and the" Foresters' fire."
CARNARVON. A MAN DROWNED,—We regret to say a man named Joseph Sherlock, was drowned last Thursday morning, in the straits, from a fishing boat. His body was not secured when our report left. HARBOUR TRUST.—The usual monthly meeting was held on Tuesday, at the Harbour Office, the Mayor, Llewelyn Turner, Esq., in the chair. The vouchers for the three months, viz., Sept. Oct., and Nov. (there not being a sufficient number of Trustees present the two preceding months to form a meeting) were read over and passed. The dues collected, showed a small increase, Yiz., £20, as compared with the corresponding month last year, and upon the entire year, £37. The balance in the Treasurer's hands shewed a respectable balance. A letter was laid on the table addressed to the Superin- tendent of the Light House at Llanddwyn, from the Board of Trade and Admiralty, expressing the high opinion they entertained of his attention to his duties and the great services he had rendered by so doing. An application was made to hire the shipbuilding yard by the year, which, after some conversation, was refused. The annual Tenders for various articles to be supplied to the Trust for the ensuing year were accepted, viz., Messrs Pilcher, London, oil; Mr. R. D. Williams, Car- narvon, ironmongery, &c.; Mr. David Parry, smith, for shakles and iron. A long conversation ensued respecting the competing railways proposed to go through the town, viz., Mr. Preston's and the Welsh Coast line. The scheme of the former includes a large portion of the Slate Quay, embracing all the buildings, with the harbour offices, sheds, coal yard, &c., also the foundry occupied by Messrs. Thomas and De Winton, with all the adjoining property abutting on the River. The pro- posed tunnels are to commence near the Uxbridge Arms Hotel, and emerges in Penllyn where it will pass over the River and re-enter on Pool-side, croosing ,der the top of Pool-lane, leaving the new ohapel, now build- ing, a few yards on the right, continuing under part of Uxbridge-street, Pool-street, and in a continuous course, is to emerge on to the present -Nantllo railway, just be- low Sir. Revis's school; the line is to continue on the Nantlle line, taking in the station-house, and a part of the garden belonging to Glynhelen, in the occupation of John Brewer, Esq., and afterwards to take the course, with a few alterations, of the present line to Penygroes, and proceed on to Portmadoc, Criccieth, and Pwllheli. The Welsh Coast propose starting from the station on the Bangor road, crossing the priory fields, hi the oc- cupation of J. Harding, Esq., over the Turkey shore on to the Timber yard, occupied by Messrs. Owen &, Co., taking a straight line on to Church street, and clearing away a portion of Training College and Houses adjoining to the mouth of the harbour, which it proposes to cross by a viaduct and substantial swing bridge, thence skirt- ing Coed Helen on towards Llanfagdalen, from a point near Plas Llallfagdalen and the Church, it will proceed across the country towards Glyn Llifon on to Pen-y-groes, the course afterwards is on to Portmadoc, Criccieth, and Nevin; near the latter place, Porthdynllaen, it is proposed to erect a magnificent harbour, whioh will be the most direct route from London to Ireland. This latter scheme appears to meet with much greater approbation in the town than the former. The Mayor called attention to the danger incurred to the shipping entering the port in consequence of two rocks near the Anglesey Coast' one called Siscor and the other Garreg-gul, which was' not buoyed; the mooring also in Rhosgollen Bay was bad and dangerous. Upon these representations it was agreed to memoralise the proper authorities. Upon application to Mr. Roberts, wine and spirit merchant, the Bonding cellar occupied by him, was ordered to be flagged, he laying an extra rent in consideration. The f Auditor's accounts were then received and adopted. PETTY SESSIONS, Thursday, 5th December.-Before Llewelyn Turner, Esq" Mayor, and Thomas Turner, Esq. RefltBal to pay Harbour Dues.—Edward Owen, mas- ter of a small smack, had been summoned for the above offence and not appealing, Mr Manley applied for a war- rant for his apprehension, which was granted. In explanation, the Mayor observed that there was some difficulty in deckling the case in the accused's ab- sence. Drunkenness.—Richard Williams, carrier, Beddgelert, was summoned for being drunk and disorderly on the 28th ult. The case being proved, he was sentenced to three days' imprisonment, and a warrant was issued for his appre- hension. Assault.—R. M Jones was charged with assaulting Mary Williams, on Tuesday last, and was bound over in aclo to keep the peace..
I LLANGEFNI. RENT AUDIT.—On Monday last, the rent audit of Sir R. B. W. Bulkeley, Bart., M.P., was) held at the Bull Hotel, here. Business being over, the principal tenantry partook of a most excellent spread, prepared in Mr. and Mrs. Humphreys's usual excellent style, -the chair being taken by Andrew Laurie, Esq., the much respected agent of the estate;—Wm. Roberts, Esq., of Lledwigan, being vice-chairman. The cloth having been removed, The CHAIRMAN gave "the Queen"—may she long live to sway the sceptre over an united, prosperous, and loyal people. (Applause.) The next toast was "The Prince Consort," who takes a lively interest in every- thing that tends to promote the welfare 01 tier Majesty s subjects, and who is also a keen agriculturist, (Cheers.) The Chairman next gave the Prince of Wales and the rest of the 11 oval Family." The Prince is now prosecu- ting his studies at Oxford, after returning from paying a visit to our neighbours on the other side of the Atlantic, where, by his princely bearing and gentlemanly conduct, he secured to himself a warm reception from all who had the honor of a visit from him. Were be to visit Wales, undoubtedly he would meet with a similar reception. ray he trend in the steps of his royal parents. (Ap- plause.) The Bishop and Clergy of the diocese," and "minhters of every denomination" was the next toast given by the Chairman, who said their responsibilities were sacred, and that they deserved being esteemed and regarded. The Rev. A. ELLIS, of Llangwyllog, returned thanks for the kind manner in which the toast was received. The CHAIBMAN then said: Whenever and wherever Sir Richard Bulkeley's name is proposed as a toast, it is so well received, that it requires no panegyric to ensure it an enthusiastic reception. He would say without fear of contradiction, that Sir Richard Bulkeley had done as much, aye, perhaps more for agriculture than any other lauded proprietor in Wales. Sir Richard re- gretted he was unable to attend the meeting himself, on account of other business, as well as his noble mansion being full of company. He gave Sir Richard Bulkeley." (Cheers. ) The Rev. A. ELLIS gave the health of "Lady Bulke- ley,"—a good, charitable, and virtuous lady. (Applause.) Mr. WILLIAMS, of Bodafon, proposed "the health of Capt. Bulkeley and the rest of the Baron Hill family. The toast was warmly received. The VICE-CHAIRMAN in complimentary terms pro- posed" the health of the Chairman," who was also their worthy agent. (Plaudits.) The CHAIRMAN, in returning thanks for the warm manner the toast was received, said that it would ever be his aim to cultivate a kind feeling between landlord and tenant, as he considered their mutual interests to be connected. In proposing the toasts of "the Baron Hill Anglesey Tenantry, and prosperity to Agriculture," he remarked that agriculture, of late years, had made ex- tensive and gigantic strides, and was progressing favour- ably. Steam power had done much to improve agri- culture, as well as mankind, morally and socially. For various reasons, he did not think that it would soon be applied to the cultivation of the soil in the Principality, but he did not see why we should not take advantage of it in constructing a railway to the thriving town of Llangefni; and he hoped, at no remote date, to see a lirw of railway through the interior of the Island of Anglesey, Machinery had also done much to improve agdoviture.; for we tare now grubbers, cultivators, and a host of others, too numerous to mention, all of which, when Judiciously selected and applied, are of immense value in facilitating labour, a consideration which should not be lost sight of. Although draining is the first" im- provement in farming, if it be not followed by a deep cultivation, only a portion of its important benefits is reaped. We have also, pulpers, chaff-cutters, and root- slicers, which are great economisers of food, and he (the Chairman) maintained that every pertule of straw and hay ought to be cut and mixed with roots, as it would be a great saving; and as meat is likely to be so high this season, it was at least worthy of a fair trial by them who had not already adopted the system. He also en- larged upon artificial manures, as fertilisers and stimu- lants for the greens of roots and lop-dressings. Coupled with the toast, the health of Mr. Roberts, the Vice- Chairman," was given. Mr. ROBERTS responded in a brief speech. The CHAIRMAN, in eulogistic terms, proposed "the health of Mr. and Mrs. Humphreys." The excellent entertainment of that evening proved their business-like capabilities; and he would add, that Mr. Humphreys's mode of farming was highly creditable to him. Mr. HUMPHREYS returned thanks for the kind manner the toast was received. Mr. LAURIE proposed the Town and Trade of Llan- gefni," coupled to which he gave the health of Mr. Edwards." Mr. EDWARDS responded on behalf of himself and brother tradesmen. Although jt was but a short time since he came to reside at Llangefni, such was the good feeling manifested to him on all hands, that he felt as homely as if he had resided in the place for many years. The following toasts were also given and duly honored "Dr. Lloyd and the Medical Profession;" "Captain Rowlands;" "Mr. Hunt;" "Mr. Jones;" and the Press." Mr. HUGH THOMAS, our correspondent, responded to the last toast.
MENAI BRIDGE. I PETTY SESSIONS, Dec. 3.—Before the Rev. Dr. Jones, Dr. R. Brisco Owen, and J. P. Gubbins, Esq. Hugh Pritchard, White Horse, Pentraeth, was sum- moned by Margret Hughes, of the same place, for using threatening language. Case dismissed. Ellen Williams, of Talwrn, summoned Ann Williams, of the same place, for using threatening language. Case adjourned to Llangefni Petty Sessions. W. Williams, surgeon, Menai Bridge, was summoned by Ellen Parry, of the same place, for the support of her illegitimate child, who she alleged to be the father. Usual order made. Thomas Williams, Tyn-y-coed, Penmynydd, was sum- moned by Catherine Williams, Brynia Bach, Llanfair- pwllgwyngyll. Settled out of Court. Case of Ejectm,cnt.-William Williams v. David Jones. -Possession to be given up.
PWLLHELI. NEW ROAD.—It is well known here that the present road leading from Pwllheli to the parish church of Denio is so steep on the side next to the town, that it forms a very serious obstacle in the way of business, as only very small loads can be taken up it with an ordinary team. Weare, however, happy to say that this difficulty is now very likely to be, at least, partially removed. We understand that the present respected Mayor has obtained permission of Lord Newborough to have the road di- verted from its present route, and that it is intended to make a new road past the schools, which will give a very uch le. incline, and that without going any great wayward about. We are glad to find the worthy Mayor commencing his mttyoralty in such a laudable manner, and the inhabitants will be much indebted to Lord New- borough for his kind liberality to the borough. THE ScnooNEii "MAIVINIA."—On Sunday morning last, the ship Lilias," of Pwllheli, arrived in the har- bour in company with the schooner Malvinia," of Aberystwyth. The following tale of the captain's is a very strange one, and reflects anything but credit on two or three parties. On Thursday morning the Lilias" sighted a vessel off the coast of Cardigan, floundering about in a very unusual manner. The captain after a time despatched a boat with four men, in order to aseer- what the matter was. When the men boarded the schooner, they found that she had been deserted by the crew, and also that there was about 8 feet of water in the hold. They set to work the pump immediately, and in a short time they reduced the water very perceptibly. Wheg they were busy at work, a large Yankee vessel, which was in the neighbourhood, bore down upon the schooner, and sent a boat with sailors in it, who also boarded, and began to strip the vessel, taking away with them all they could lay their hands on, amongst the rest being the master's telescope. The master of the Lilias," learning what had been done, hailed the Yan- kee vessel, and threatened to report the captain at, the first port he came to, on which Jonathan disclamed all knowledge that the sailors had taken anything from the ship, and in a short time all the articles were returned. The two ships then sailed away, and arrived at Pwllheli on Sunday morning. The Malvina," it appears, was laden with coals, from Newport to Cork, and had sprung a leak on the voyage. The crew, it would seem, got frightened at the rapid increase of the water, and taking advantage of a vessel passing, they left the Malvina" to her fate, and arrived at Milford Haven, where they re- ported the vessel in a sinking state We may remark that the conduct of the Yankees has given rise to a good deal of indignation as well as astonishment, as it bor- dered very closely upon piracy.
PENRHYN DEUDRAETH. PETTY SESSIONS, Thursday, Nov. 29--Before D. Wil- liams and S. Holland, Esqrs. Assault.—William Thomas, who lives in the neigh- bourhood of Festiuiog, charged the following parties with kicking, striking, and otherwise assaulting him, on the evening of the 12th November, viz., Wm. Thomas, Edward Owen, D. Williams, and Morris Edwards. The complainant-deposed that he was returniug home from the village of Festiuiog, about 11 o'clock, on the evening of the 12th of November, when he saw four men on the road where it turns down to Blaenyddol. He went on after bidding them" good night," when one of the party took hold of him, struck, and afterwards kicked him. He dionot know any one of the men then. Robert Jones preferred a similar charge, and deposed to the assault being committed as follows :-He resided at Tycanol, Blaenau Festiniog, and was returning home with William Thomas on the night in question. He saw Richard Williams take hold of Wm. Thomas, when he asked the latter to come on home. On this Richard Williams struck him too, and also kicked him. He af- terwards followed Wm. Thomas, and kicked and hit him a blow in the eye. The Bench decided that the charges were fully proved against Wm. Thomas and Edward Owen, who were fined as follows :—W m. Thomas, 10s. and 16s. costs; and Robert Jones gs., with lis. 6d. costs. R. Williams and Morris Edwards were dismissed. Drunkenness.—J. G. Jones was charged by Sergeant Daniels with being drunk and disorderly in the street, at Festiniog, at 12 o'clock on the night of the 24th of No. vember. Sergeant Daniels said he ordered him to go home, but as he preferred being taken to tne ioek-up, ne was accordingly accommodated with a lodging there. John Edwards, came to the rescue of the defendant as a witness, and stated he did not see Sergeant Daniels taking Jones to the lock-up; and about twenty minutes previously, he saw Jones himself, and he was then quite sober. The Bench took a contrary view of the defendant s sobriety, and fined him fig. with lis. 6d. costs. The money was paid. Larceny.—Wm. Jones was charged by Elizabeth Ed- wards. The case was adjourned until the next meeting. Affiliatio)? Cases.- Two of these t)t<e<-<'s?? ? cases were entered on the books, for hearing, vk., Catherine Haley agabi?it Wm. Hughes; and Jannett Robe? against Edward Ellis; both, however, were adjourned to the next meeting. A ?)e/nKMt? "Putative. —Moses Howell was sum- 'oA ned by Mary ?iriffith for disobeying a bastardy order made for the maintenance of her illegitimate child. Moses settled the dispute by paying the money and the costs.
RHYL. PETTY SESSIONS, Saturday,—Before the Hon. Colonel Rowley, M. P., and T. G. Dixon, Esq. Charg' e of Stealing Geese.-The prisoners, Edward Morris, Joseph Davies, and Mary Davies, his wife, were brought up on remand, on the several charges of geese stealing, reported in the last number of the CHRONICLE. Mr. Williams, of Rhyl, appeared as before for the pr,ner praoner.^ of stealing three geese, the property of Joseph Hughes, farmer, on the night of the 15th Nov., was first taken. Joseph Hnghes-I live at Towyn, about two miles from here, and am a farmer. On the night of the 15th November, I lost three geese: I last saw them about 10 o'clock. They were lost from the stables adjoining the house. I missed them first about eight o'clock on the following morning. The stable door was not looked. I have not since seen the geese; they were all old, and one of them had been in my possession ten years. I had not seen the prisoners upon the premises. They live about a mile from me. Cross-examined— When I missed the geese, I went in. search of them; they are not in the habit of straying; I don't know whether they are the prisoners own geese- they may for anything I know. Elizabeth Jones-I live at Towyn, near where the prisoners reside. They have two geese in their posses- sion now, and previously have had others-younger ones, which they sold before harvest. I don t know whether they have had more than two geese since the let of November. I have not taken notice-only two came to trouble me. Crom-examined-I am not In the habit of Belling geese for the prisoners, and only know from heresay that they were sold. They may have twenty geese now for anything I know. I am sometimes as long as three days without passing the house, and have only been inside it once for four or five years. Ann Jones-I am a poulterer, and live at Rhyl. I htWe twice purchased geese from the prisoner, Joseph Davies. The last occasion on which I did so was to-day fortnight: when I bought three old ones aud one young oiie. One was so old, I could make nothing out of it. For three out of four of the geese, I paid 54d per lb., and for the very old one, 5d. The geese were brought in a bag, which I did not particularly notice. The prisoner did not offer to sell me more geese; he and his wife had the week previous sold me three. On the first occasion, the male prisoner Davies told me he brought the geese from the Gainc, and that he had been given them by his brother, who had no money to give him. Cross-exarnined- The prisoner had a fair price for the geese: I only know from hearsay that the geese were old, with the exception of one, which was cooked for our own family. The prisoner came in open daylight. I bought the geese for young ones. The Chairman-Did you eat one yourself ? WitllesS- Yes. The Chairman—Now, could you get your teeth into it. (Laughter.) lilitnes.4-1 had to chew it for a long time, and there are some pieces left yet for somebody else to try. (Great latighter.) Ellen Jones--I live in Rhyl. I was in Ann Jones's shop when the prisoner came in this day fortnight. He had a bag on his back. I know him well. Inspector Rees Davim-From information received of geese being stolen in the neighbourhood, I went, on Monday last, to the house of the prisoners, on the road to Towyn, about a mile from Prestatyn. The prisoners were not present. I made a search of the house, with- out finding anything, and then went into the garden, and in a ditch near to the hedge I found two sacks, which I now produce. I am able to swear, from the feathers and down in the inside of the one I hold in my hand, that geese have been carried in it. The sack has on it the name of William Evans, Victoria Mill, Holy- well. (Witness here produced the second sack, which was marked Robert Hughes, Tre Llewelyn, Rhyl; in this sack there were no feathers.) In another pool, about half-a-dozen yards distant, and close to the prisoners' house, I saw some sods apparently newly cut, and turn- ing, over these with a spade, I discovered a qautity of ,,g?ers, which, to all appearance, had been put there for concealment. In the garden hedge there was a hole, in which there were also feathers. Ou a second visit to the house, I found some feathers, and in an outbuilding near to the house I found a net attached to a stick ap- parently newly cut (produced), and in this net there was some down. In the building where this net was found, no geese were found. On the 28th November, I again searched the house, and saw a pillow and bolster, appa- rently newly made, and on opening these I found them composed of mixed feathers. Behind a tea tray, which I am satisfied is never used, I found hid a goose's wing, which, as far as I can see, upon examination, corre- sponda with one of the geese sold to Mrs. Jones. I told the prisoner's wife, on the 28th, that I had found two sacks, and she denied their being in their possession, but on a subsequent occasion said they could account for them. Croos-examined-To tho best of my belief the sacks had had geese in them. The sacks, though in the water, might be seen by any one. There are several persons living in the same house with the prisoners the garden, however, belongs to the prisoners. IVitnea-I omitted to state one thing, your Wor- ships. I found, on my second visit to the house, a waistcoat belonging to the prisoner Davies, with blood and the down of a goose on it. P.C. Gregory.-I searched the prisoners' house, and can corroborate what last witness has said. I have further to say, that on examining the pig's cot, I found some rush there, and amongst it was a goose's wing. On the 27th I apprehended the prisoners Joseph Davies and Edward Morris, and told them it was on a charge of stealing seven geese, the property of Hugh Hughes, of Ty- newydd, on the 15th; three geese on the same night, the property of Joseph Hughes; and on the 22nd with stealing seven geese, the property of Mr. Wm. Lloyd of I Belvoir. Davies said "my wife has sold five geese in Rhyl, which we reared ourselves, but I never sold or bought a goose in Rhyl, or any other town, and I defy anyone to say so." I told him that two sacks had been found in the garen ditch. "Oh yos," he said, "we had had feathers in them, and had put them into water the better to get the feathers off them. The sacks were given to my wife's sister by Mr. Hughes, of Tynewydd." This closed the evidence in the first case. The "prisoners were then charged with stealing seven geese, the property of Mr. Hughes, of Tynewydd. Roger Hughes.—I live at Tynewydd, and am a far- mer. On the 15th of last month, I lost seven geese from a field; I had seen them safe about 12 o'clock the day previous. I have not seen them sinee. I see a sack produoed, which I believe to be one I lost about six months since, but I cannot swear to it. All I can say is, that it is a similar one to mine. Cross-examined.—I am not aware that my father (Hugh Hughes) has been in the habit of taking corn in sacks to Winifred Morris, the female prisoner's sister, and who lives in the same house. Ann Jones, the poulterer, repeated the evidence given by her in the former case, Wm. Bradfield.—I am a clerk in the alkali works at Prestatyn. The prisoner, Joseph Davies, works there: it was his duty to be there on the 16th, but he was absent. Cross-examined,—On the night of the 15th, the pri- soner was at his work, and received wages for it. Mr. Williams-The 15th was the night of the robbery, your worships. The charge of stealing three geese, the property of Mr. Wm. Robert Lloyd, was then taken. Wm. Robert Lloyd-I reside at the' Belvoir Hotel, Rhyl. I hold land near the town, on which I keep some geese. I lost seven of these on the night, I believe, of the 22nti, and have not seen them since. Robert Thomas-I live in Vale-road, and am ala. bourer working for Mr. Lloyd. The geese on Air. Lloyd's farm were under my care; on the night of the 22nd, I saw seven of them safe, but by noon next day they were gone. I did not go in search. This was all the evidence. Mr. Williams having addressed the Bench for the prisoners (i.e., for the male prisoners, Mary Davies having just before been discharged), The Magistrates, while remarking that there were grounds for very strong suspicion, dismissed the various cases. A charge preferred by Inspector Davies, of having stolen a quantity of timber belonging to a wrecked vessel at Prestatyn, was adjourned till the 18th inst. An assault case-in which the defendant admitted the charge-was disposed of, and the Bench rose. RHYL OPEN COURSING MEETING. This coursing meeting took place on Thursday last, on the grounds of Hugh It Hughes, Esq., of Kinmel, who, with the readiuess that always distinguishes him when he can afford any facilities to the sports of the country, at once permitted his property to be run over, on this as on previous occasions. The following gentlemen acted as stewards, viz., Messrs. W. Hughes, J. Day, D. A. Robertson, W. Jones, J. Roberts, and T. Jones. Mr. Bushnall acted as judge, and gave general satis- f.ti.

THE DINNER In connection with the above coursing meeting, TOOK place at the Liverpool Arms, Wellington Road, where about fifty sportsmen sat down to as excel- lent an entertainment as could have been de- sired the liberality and taste with which it was sup- plied and served, reflecting the greatest credit on the host and hostess, Mr and Mrs. Price. The chair was occupied by Mr. J. Day, and the Vice ditto by Mr. D. A. Robertson. The CHAIRMAN give in succession "The Queen," Prince Albert, and the rest of the royal family," and other routine toasts. During the progress of these, a gentleman present took exception to the decision of the Judge in one or two of the courses, but it being pointed out to him by the Vice, by Mr. Jones, Menai Bridge, and others, that that was neither the time nor the place for the settle- ment of any disputes, he with great good taste withdrew his observations, and thus avoided what threatened to be a very recriminatory discussion. Mr. ELLIS proposed Success to the Vale of Clwyd Coursing Club," a toast which was extremely well re- ceived. Mr. JONES, Dinorben Arms, Secretary to the Club, replied. He mi(I-on the part of the Vale of Clwyd =g Club, I have to thank Mr. Ellis for the Buc?em he wishes it. I am sorry to see that this little differcnce has occurred, but these things will happen in all places, and are part of the extraordinary accidents of coursing -we cannot account for them-(hear, hear,) but they do happen in all meetings, and I hope Mr. Ellis will bring it before the proper authorities, who are the stewards of the meeting. If you have an objection to the judge at the meeting, you must bring it before the stewards appointed to couduct that meeting, and if they cannot settle it, it must go to the National Club, who soon will settle it for us. lam glad that the discussion has dropped; this dinner is for the benefit of Mr. Price of the Liverpool Arms, (hear, hear,) and I should have been sorry had the harmony been interrupted by this little difference of opinion. And I do hope you will fill your glasses, and do Mr. Price some little good as usual. (Hear, hear, and applause.) The CHAIRMAN.—There is decidedly one health we ought to driiik-I mean that of Mr. Hughes, of Kinmel. (Applause.) I have not the honour of knowing that worthy gentleman except by name, but his name is familiar to us all as one who offers every faci- lity to the coursing in this neighbourhood, and that, of course, gives him a claim on the hearty good will of sportsmen. (Applause.)—The toast was drunk in a bumper. Mr. ELLrs-I desire to propose, as a toast, the health of an individual whom we have all known for many years, aud whom I hope we shall have the pleasure of knowing for many years to come. Whenever we go for a day's sporting, he affords us the greatest enjoyment in his power-I mean Jerry Jones, the keeper of Kinmel. The VICE-CHAIRMAN—A suggestion having been made for a song, I hink we could not do better than follow up this appropriate toast by calling on our friend Mr. Jones of tho Dinorben Arms. (Hear, hear.) Thus called on, Mr. JONES readily complied, giving, in capital style, The Irish Jaunting Car," which was rapturously received. Mr. PLATT, of Liverpool, gave, as a sentiment, May the tree of liberty flourish in every workhouse yard, and all the boys be able to 'cut their stick. (Laughter and applause.) Mr. ROBERTS, of Queen's Ferry, sang The Oak and the Ivy." The VICE-CHAIRMAN—Will you, Mr. Chairman, allow me to propose a toast. The -CHAIRMAN-Certainly; and I hope, as it is sure to be a good one, that every gentleman will fill his glass. The VICE-CHAIRMAN-I think they all seem to have their glasses pretty well charged, and, that we may not lose time, I shall at once proceed. There is one toast that claims our special attention this evening before we separate, and it is The Press." (Hear, hear.") I need not tell you it has assembled us all this evening; only for the instrumentality of the Press we should not hve had this meeting to-day. This, I need hardly say, is neither the time nor the place to speak of the invaluable benefits conferred upon England, and the people of Eng- land, by the Press, but we all know the social and do- mestic comforts we daily derive from it; and I am proud to think that we have a noble representative of that es- -f fl,- N?,.t 7, 1"1,8 tate here present—Mr "n^ngias, ot t.h9 J\rurth Wale8 Chronicle; and, with the toast, I would bog to couple his health. (Applause.) He is become of notorious ce- lebrity in Rhyl by his pithy articles on the Rhyl Com- missioners. (Hear, hear.) I dont thinV this is the time or place to criticize these matters, but I will leave you to judge ?,heth?r he does not deserve your sympathies for his exposure of the failings of certain gentlemen who assemble close by us. (Applause.) I hope you will all drink to the Press, and the health of Mr. Douglas as its representative on this occasion. The toast was received with immense applause, and drunk with musical honors.—A very cordial reception was also awarded to Mr. Douglas's reply. The VICE-CHAIRMAN gave the favorite song of The Highlands." Mr. ELLIS proposed a toast which, he was sure, all present would coincide in drinking heartily-" The health of the unsuccessful competitors at the Coursing Match." The VICE-CHAIRMAN—May I add a rider ? It is merely to give with this toast the health of the gentle- man who has brought the most dogs to this meeting. The CHAIRMAN-I cannot entertain that: it is hardly revelaut,, (Cries of yes, yes.") The VICE-CHAIRMAN—The "unsuccessful competi- tors" ought to be coupled with the one individual who has been most unsuccessful-that is, who has had most dogs here, and has not been successful in any me. (Hear, hear.) I shall be glad, therefore, to couple with it the name of my friend opposite to me, (-Air. Roberts, of Queen's Ferry). He has been the stay of this meeting, and has done more to get it to what it has been, than any one in this room, and I have great pleasure in giv- ing his health in connection with the toast Mr. Ellis has proposed. (Applause.) Mr. HOBERTS-I beg to return my sincere thanks to our Vice-chairman for the very kind way in which he has proposed my health, and to you all, gentlemen, for the cordial manner in which vou have drunk it. With regard to coursing, I have followed it for this last ten or twelve years, and have been always happy to meet my friends on such occasions, and do all in my power to enhance the enjoyment. (Hear, hear.) I hope this may not be the last day of my meeting you all here. To-day I have lost, but am content even to be a loser, and will now, gentlemen, drink all your good healths in return for the compliment paid me. (Applause.) After a moment's pause, Mr. ROBERTS again rose and s.t1-I think we have one worthy friend in the room whoj-e health we have omitted to propose, and with your permission I will do it now. It is "the health of our worthy friend Mr. Jones, the secretary of the meeting." (The toast was pledged with great enthusiasm.) Mr. ELLIS—May I just be allowed to say, in reference to this toast, that I have had many matters to transact with Mr. Jones in affairs of coursing, and I can bear tes- timony to his punctuality, business-like habits, and uni- foniicourteiy. (Hear, hear.) I have often had to write to him, and he has been the man, on all occasions, to answer by return of post. I think, therefore, that the club have appointed the right man in the right place, and I can only hope, in reference to the future, that Mr. Jones will conduct the business cf the club in the same way that he has done it in the past. (Hear, hear.) Mr. JONES—I have to thank you very much for the great honor you have done me in'proposing my health, and I can only say that whatever good service I can do the club, it shall be very readily rendered. (Applause.) After one or two remarks of a general nature, Mr. Jones proceeded: But I must give the Vice-chairman the leading rein in this affair of the club. I was only a se- condary person in it. He has done more than I have, though I am acting secretary. He assists me in every way he can; and when there is a bit uf work to do, he always comes and helps me. (Hear, hear.) Now the club is getting prosperous- I hope it will continue so I may not long continue in the office of secretary, but I shall always wish the club every success, and while I do belong to it I shall do everything in my power to en- hance its prosperity. (Applause.) Mr. Jones concluded by again expressing his thanks. Mr. PLATT, of Liverpool, gave a song, following it up by proposing the health of the Chairman." The toast was received with musiSal honors, and was duly acknowledged. The VICE-CHAIRMAN gave "the health of the landlord, with thanks to him for his excellent entertainment," and with this toast the proceedings terminated.
RUTHIN. I DENBIGH RUTHIN AND CORWEN RAILWAY.—Mr. Beckingham, the energetic contractor, has earnestly commenced making this new line, and from his excel- lent practical experience, we have no doubt that thi railway will be completed within the time specified in the contract. THE RENT AUDIT OF G. HAMMOND WHALLEY, Esq., M.P., took place on Tuesday last. The ustutl routine business having been gone through, the tenantry met at the White Lion Hotel, where they partook of an excel- lent dinner, provided by Mr. and Mrs. Green in their customary style. The cloth having been withdrawn the health of their worthy landlord was proposed and drank with enthusiasm. THE RENT AUDIT off EDWD. JONES, ESQ., of Prod- sham, the respectable owner of Caergroes Estate, near this town, took place at the Wynnstay Arms Hotel, on Tuesday last. The usual business having been gone through, the tenants assembled at the above Hotel, in- vited by their worthy landlord, to a most excellent re- past, got up in first-rate style by the well-known caterers, Mr. and Mrs. Smart. The chair was occupied by John Jones, Esq., agent. Toast, song, and sentiment, was the order of the day, and the company before separating, drank in a bumper, Long life and happiness to their present generous landlord." PETTY SKSSIONS, Monday Dec. 3.-Before Major Wynne (Chairman), Rev. E. J. Jones, and James Mau- rice, Esq., Mayor. I'ldio/Ji'l Fishing.—J. Jones, Llanfwrog, was brought up on remand charged by P.C. Sergeant Dicker, with having unlawfully in his possession a salmon, near the River Clwydog, on the night of Thursday the 29th ult. Mr. Louis appeared for defendant. Sergeant Dicker, sworn, said that from information he received, he went to the above River, and there saw the defendant, and took hold of him. He had a salmon in his possession, and in the struggle, threw it in the river. The fish was dead. Crosa-examined-It was about half-past five in the evening. After locking up the defendant, I went back to the river to look for the salmon, but did not find it. I positively swear it was a salmon. Mr. Louis-Might it not be a sea trout? WitnC8S-I swear it was a salmon. Thomas Itiniiner-I am a game-keeper. I was near the river in question on the 29th inst. It was about 12 at noon. Saw the defendant kill a salmon and hide it in the hedge. He had a stick with a hook at the end of it. Cross-examined by Mr. Louis-Why did you not in- terfere ? Wltncss-I had something else to do. Mr. Adams deposed that he was Deputy Clerk of the Peace for the County of Denbigh. Produced an Order of the Court of Quarter Sessions, fixing the fence days of the above river, and other rivers. Mr. Louis objected to the book being put in evidence, inasmuch as it was not a record. The point had occur- red before, and he cited a case of King v. Ward. Mr. Adams tendered the book as good evidence. Mr. Louis-I object to Mr. Adams producing the book, as he was not the proper officer of the Court of Quarter Sessions. Cross-ex immed by Mr. Li)ijis-I do not remember whether I was present or not at the Quarter Sessions when the Order was made. Do not know whether no- tice was given previous to making the Order. I produce the Order as Deputy Clerk of the Peace. Mr. Louis-Did you not get that book from one of the. clerks to the Clerk of the Peace. Mr. Adnms-I decline to answer that question. Mr. Louis asked the Bench to grant him a case for the Queen's Bench, and cited a case in which Baron Parke was of opinion that the book was not sufficient evi- dence that a record must be on parchment. Mr. Adams then proceeded to read the order. Joseph Peers, Esq., was then called, and after having been sworn stated that he was Clerk of the Peace for the County of Denbigh— Mr. Louis still objected to the production of the Mi- nute Book as evidence, contending that it was not a re- cord, and again applied for a case. The Bench granted the application. Mr. Louis then gave the required notice in writing. The prisoner was fined X5 and jE3 6s. 9d cost;, or two months' imprisonment; Mr. Maurice in addressing the prisoner said, that it was a very great offence to take salmon at illegal seasons when the fish were breeding and went up the rivers to perform their functions; it not only destroys the increase of a most valuable article of man's food, but its taking that which i9 unwholsome to eat, and consequently injurious to health. In all cases of the kind which may again come before us, the heaviest penalty would be inflicted.

THE CATHEDRAL.—We perceive that with a view to the heating of the Cathedral, the experiment of intro- ducing gas stoves is being tried. A good many years ago the Dean and Chapter incurred an expenditure of from X200 to £3UO, in the laying down, for the same purpose, of hot water pipes, butilin 1'1= prod a. failure, and fresh were necessitated. We sincerely trmt the new experiment may be successful, as the un- comfortable coldness of the edifice at present, has the effect of keeping many delicate persons from attending Divine Service there. PETTY SESSIONS, Monday, Dec. 3.-Before Capt. H. L. Thomas, atidcol. Wynn, M.P. An Old Charge.—William Jones, farm labourer, was charged with unlawfully and wilfully damaging and breaking a certain window the property of Mr. Fairclough. The offence, it seems, was committed as long ago as the 16th of July, and one of the two engaged in it was brought up before the magistrates soon after that date and fined, but the defendant, who was alleged to be the other offender, could never be found so as to be served with the summOll8 till very recently. He now denied having in any way participated in the breaking at all, alleging that he only stood by, and with respect to the assertion of the police that he had absconded, it appeared that during a great part of the time he had Been working at Pentre, close to St. Asaph. The magistrates ordered the defendant to pay a fine of Is., and the cost of the sum. moni-iiot allowing the costs of the police, as they believed that it was from their want of diligence the de- fendant had not been served sooner. William Williams, currier, charged by P. C. Hedge, with being drunk and disorderly at Rhuddlan on the 30th November, did not appear. Service of summons having being proved, he was fined 5s., and costs. Vndue Zeal in the Police—Thomas Hughes, a labourer, who did not appear, was charged by P. C. Hedge with being drunk and disorderly at Rhuddlan. The offence, as described by the officer, consktsd merely in this, that on the night of the 3rd November the defendant was in liquor and was making some nui,e in the street, but on being told by the police that he ought not to do so, he walked quietly away, not offering the least resistance. He had always, it appeared, possessed a go,)d character. The Chairman-It does not seem much of an offence. Here is a poor man who geti drank, as many of them are foolish enough to do, spending their money, but when told to go from the street he departs quietly. The police should not be too sharp on these occasions. If a man is guing on in a disorderly way, or attacking other people, it is another thing, but I dont think a case of staggering ought to be brought up here. If a man is making a row, disturbing the police, and wishing or trying to fight, or resist the constables, it is right and proper to bring him up, but if he is only a little overcome, inoffensive and goes quietly away when the constable tells him, you should deal leniently with the case, because you should bear in mind that when these men are brought up it goes hard with them to be fined even a shilling, for then the cost are 8s., and there is a whole week's wages gone, and the family perhaps thrown into want. I am not for a moment advocating drunkenness, but a iiiiin may be overcome, not by spending any money of his own but by being treated by another, through his being a good natured fellow, and I think where there is nothing offensive in his conduct the police ought to use their discretion and not bring up any trifling case. Inspector Davies-That is my plan, and I have im- pressed it upon the police. The Chairman-l think you ought to do so; if this man had appeared, Col. Wynn and myself might have thought it right to let him off; as he has not, we can only be guided by what the constable has said, but even he says that the defendant was not at all offensive but went away quietly when he was told; therefore we put the lowest fine upon him-a fine of 6d., and costs. At this stage the defendant appeared in court, and ex- plaining the reasons why he was not present sooner, he stated in answer to the chairman, that on the night in question he met with an old friend, who treated him to some ale, which overcame him, but he was going home in a perfectly quiet manner. He added that he was a widower with four children. The Chairinan-We are very glad you have come, be. cause-we will re-consider the ease. It seems you were very inoffensive, and did no harm or injury, but I hope you will take a warning in future, and not again get drunk, for if a person is brought up for that offence the magistrates have a duty to perform, and they must inflict a fine upon him, and that is not the heaviest part of it, for, as I wish it to be impressed, if we only fine him 6d., there are 8s. costs, over which we have no power, and which is an amount you may feel for the next three months against you however, the case is dismissed, for the reasons stated on your promising that we shall nevr see you here again. Isaac Williams, v. P. C., edge. This, a very serious assault case, was adjourned till the next meeting.

country, and detailed the necessary preliminaries for itot formation. It was resolved that a committee be formed, consisting of the vicars, the churchwardens, and some of the members of the Church, and a secretary appointed. A Sunday school in connexion with the Welsh Church was also spoken of, and steps were to be taken towards obtaining the sanction of the other vicar for holding the. same, as formerly, in the broad aisle of the church. The rev. Chairman deeply impressed upon the audience the Importance of lay co-operation, and made some very ap- propriate remarks upon the advent of our Saviour, which were listened to with marked attention. The attendance was large, and much good may be anticipated in this parish from a movement, that cannot but meet with the conscientious approval of every true lover of the Church.
