PAUPER SETTL'Z.-A ENT. r Adams, solictor of Ruthin, appeared for Mr Peers, < le:k of the Peace, for the pur- pose of ascertaining whether or not, there was any doubt as to a Lunatic pauper now in the Asylum at Denbigh, having obtained a settlement at Llangollen. The pau- per having been some time before that bench, and no set- tlement cjuld be diieovei-e(I-wai in consequence placed chargeable to the county. The pauper was Jana Club, wife of Juhn Club, who some years ago was tried for the murder of the late Mr Lloyd's keeper, at Baggilt. It was resolved that she mut coutinuo chargeable to the County, and could not be made so on the parish of Llan- gollen.

Mr Adams defended. Joha Jones a watcher to Colonel Biddulph sworn, said he knew all the defendants before he saw them that day, the 22nd instant. Saw them running in a straight line across the field from the road. They cut across and were beating the ground belonging to Colonel Biddulph. They run a hare with a greyhound bitch. They had three grey- hounds, one belonged to Edward Wynn, another to John Morris, and the third to Thomas Jones. Cross-examined, First saw them on the Gronant between 11 and 12 o'clock. They were on au allotment belonging to Mr. Ferme; Mr Wynn, of Glyn Hall, has not the right of I couising on that land. It is not inclosed. Mr Wynn has had leave to course on that ground, when I have been with him. When I met the men, they told me Mr Wynn had promised to meet them. Edward Wynn and Thomas Davies had been invited. I know a man named Robert Jones, he is Mr Reed's keeper. I did not tell him I saw five of the defendants. Did not see them run- ning a hare only on Mr Dickens' land. By Mr Wing- field Colonel Biddulph has given me orders that Mr Wynn is not to course on the hill without my know- ledge. They were beating on Mr Biddulph's land with sticks and dogs. Robert Jones, game watcher to Mr Reed. I saw all the defendants on the 2nd of January, did not see them do anything on the road coming from Llangollen to the Glyn. Was a quarter of a mile from them at first, then went up to them and talked. Cross-examined: Do not know Mr Ferme's sheep walk. Colonel Biddulph has the right of shooting on the manor. I saw them on the road. Do not know where they came from. Saw John Jones the same day I told him I saw five of the defend ant's, but did not know whose land they were on. John Jones in the employ of Mr Wynn, Glyn Hall, produced a letter which he had received from Mr Wynn to bring there letter objected to, Mr Wynn did not tell me anything, about the men he only gave me the letter. Richard Morris, Glynn, know Mr John Wynne, Glynn Hall. Had conversation with him about these mon being on the common on the Saturday before. John Jones, recalled After they bad been on Mr Dickens' land, they came back on the hills and beat for a mile on tho road to the Glynn. Mr Adams applied for an adjournment to produce Mr John Wynn as ho had made an appoint- ment with Edward Wynu, one of the defendants to meet him, but did not do so. The court considered the offence proved, inasmuch as Mr. Wynn, of Glynn Hall, having permission to come with the keeper, he had no right to invite several more with their dogs. And if so be that ho had made an appointment with Edward Wynn, and could not keep that appoiutmeat, it was no authority for them to come by themselves. Edward Wynn, John Morris, and Thomas Jones, would there- fore be fined 53 and 83 costs, as the dogs belonged to them. The other six defendants would be fined la and 815 costs each, or in default 14 days imprisonment. KING'S MILLS. A NIGHT'S ADVENTURE.— There are many curious stories told of the odd whimsical freaks sometimes per- formed by an erratic member of the human family while under the powerful spell of Prince Alcohol." We have often, in our juvenile days, been amused by listening to the story of the man who in a state of happy oblivion, un lresocd himself on the confines of a field, opened the gllto, aud put his boots outside in the lane, so that the chambermaid might have easy access to them, and re- turn them ready cleaned in tho morning. As we grew older, we continued to laugh at this ludicrous story, but until the other day we had long become very sceptical as to its authenticity. How our childish credulity returned to us we will briefly narrate. On Saturday last, one of the sons of the soil, w ho cultivates a com pact little farm j between Marchwiel and Overton Bridge, came to Wrcx- ham market for certain business purposes, which he duly accomplished, and-as eventide approached, he began l to make such preparations for returning, as a well-to-do farmer might be expected to do. He had, during the day, imbibed sundry glasses of the pure extract of malt and hop, just as the accompaniments of his business transactions; ho also met with a number of friends who must needs have a glass with him and be one with them, &each mutual fiiend paying for the united glasses alter- nately, which amounted to precisely the same thing in the end as if every man had paid for his own; then again there was a little of something short laid in just to keep the cold out, at starting. It would be unkind to sav that the bold yeoman was now drunk—in fact, there is so little of anything like unity of opinion amongst mankind as to what constitutes a state of drunkenness, that we will not risk the assertion. Our hero, at all eyents, possessed sufficient command of himself to drive his horse in safety down tho King's Mills Hill, and was equally successful in ascending the declivity on the op- posite side of the valley. When ho arrived aL Croesy- mah, he was seized with a singular kind of dtlusion, which we will not attempt to account for—we shall therefore content ourselves with stating that he fan- cied he had reached his own farai yard, and bv an un- rnistakeable tightening of the left rein, the wishes of the master were communicated to tho horse, and accord- ingly the obedient animal turned down the lane lead- inn in the direction of Llwyn-oan lIll. After pro- ceeding a short distance down the lane, another check of the rein induced the horse to Etop, when the master got out of the shaudry, and in his hurry to retire to rest, in- stead of taking the horse out of the vehicle in the usual way, he cut the traces, and carefully conducted the ani- mal to some imaginary stable. This done, he turned his attentions more immediately to himself—in short, he partially undressed himself, and lay down to sleep. Doubtless short and few were the prayers that he said, on retiring for the night, and still shorter and fd tA or in the morning, for when he awoke, such was his bewilder- ment, that he had considerable doubt as to his own identity, but having satisfied himself on this important point, he next begun to indulge in fruitless speculations as to what particular point on the great globe," he was located, or whether he had been unconsciously trans- ported from this earthly ball to some unknown region. All remembrance of his horse and shandry appears to have forsaken him, nor does ho appear to have bacn con- scious of having divested himself of a portion of his garment* on the preceding evening, for without paying the smallest attention to his toilette be scrambled back ii a state of half nudity to the turnpike road, and turned towards Wrexham. In this stato he walked along past Brynygrog, and down the hill to Pentreliygog, where he fell in with some one who know him, from whom he re- ceived valuablo information as to his whereabouts, and equally valuablo assistance in recovering his lost property —and after dressing himself he went on his way," but whether "rejoicing" or not, our informant saith not. I GRESFORD. WREXHAM AND MOLD CHUKCU TEAcnEna' ASSOCIA- TION.—A meeting of the above association, which was attended by clergy, schoolmasters, and mistresses from various parts, was held in the National School, Gresford, on Saturday, the 28th inst. The attendance would have been larger, but the unfavourable state of the weather prevented many who had any distance to come. The Yen. Archdeacon Wickham, M.A., president of the as- sociation, occupied the chair. An excellent lesson, which was afterwards freely criticised by several prac- tical teachers, was given to a class of children by Mr J Haughton, master of the Wrexham National School. The amount of information conveyed as well as the pic- torial illustrations employed were spoken of in favour* able terms, but on some debatable points a difference of opinion existed. An able paper, containing somo very valuable suggestions, with respect to retaining an in- fluence over children after they have left school, was read by Mr Williams, of Gwersyllt. At the close of the meeting Mr Beckett, of Gresford, proposed a vote of thanks to the Ven Archdeacon Wickham for his kindness in presiding, to Mr Haughton for his lesson, and to Mr vVilliams tor his paper, which was seconded by Mr Evans, of Brymbo, and carried unanimously. It was decided that the next meeting should be held at Mold, on Saturday, the 15th of May. HUNTING APPOINTMENTS. I Sir W. W. Wynn's HOUNDS meet on- I Saturday, 4th .Malpas Monday, 6th.
