WREXHAM AND THEREABOUTS. SrR.-Your correspondent lago 11 this week asks for any further light on the subject of the duel between Capt. Jones and Dr. Manning, which took place in 1799. The following is a copy of the evidence given at the inquest. It is taken from Salopian Shreds and Patches for April 30th, 1879 :— THE DUEL BETWEEN CAPT. JONES AND MR. MANNING. It has been stated that the duel between Capt. Jones and Mr Manning, which took place at Whitchurch, in this county, was fought at the back of one of the hotels in Whitchurch. How erroneous this statement is will appear from the following evidence, given at the inquest held on the body of Capt. Jones, 28th October, 1799. The duel was fought on the 22nd day of October, and Capt. Jones died on the 26th. J.E. [Copy.] I Thomas Cross, of Whitchurch, in the county of Salop, hostler to Mr Peter Newton, of Whitchurch, in the county of Salop, innkeeper, upon oath said that he knew the said Thomas Jones, Esq., the deceased, who he understands came from Wrexham, and also knew Mr Manning, of Whit- church, aforesaid, doctor, and also Mr William Hill Watson, of the top of Bark-hill, an attorney. This deponent saw the said Thomas Jones in the White Lion kitchen on Monday last, it may be about nine o'clock in the evening, and who desired this deponent to call him up at five o'clock in the morning; did not see him any more that night. At about a quarter before six o'clock the next morning this deponent went to the bedroom door to call up the said Thomas Jones, and hit it with his hand, and Jones spoke and asked this examinant what o'clock it was. who said it was between five and six, and asked him if he chused a light, who said no. The examinant immediately went downstairs. In about five or ten minutes he saw Mr Jones, who came with Edward Lewis to the brew-house of the White Lion, and Edward Lewis said to the examinant, go along with this gentleman a little way (meaning Mr Jones.) This examinant went with Mr Jones up the High- street, and when about Mr Hassall's the grocer, Mr Jones put his hand in his pocket and gave this examinant a shilling, and said Here is a shilling for you to go with me a little way." Then went together until we came to Pepper Alley, and as we went along there Mr Jones said to this examinant, If anything happens to me there's a letter in the room where I slept," and desired me to send it to Ellfsmere to his son as soon as I could. Then went on until we came into Newtown, and Mr Jones said, If I fall send the letter as soon as you can." Then went together until we came down Sherra Mill Hill, and went half-way down, turned up a narrow road which leads to Mr Lowell's field, in the holding of Mr Arthur Roe, called the Green Field, and as we passed along, Mr Jones asked if that was not the road to Mr Trevor's garden under the wilds. I told him I thought it was, and going along the field called Mr Lovall's field, and when about half-way acro s, Mr Jones pointed towards the Red Brook road and asked whether there was anybody there. I told him not, and then he went along, and at some distance from the stile leading out of Mr Lovall's field into the Green Field I saw Mr Watson and Manning standing in the Green Field, at or about the bottom of the footpath leading into the Chester Lane. Then Mr Jones desired me to go and stand at the top of that bank (pointing to the bank in Mr Lovell's field), and said if anything hap- pens to me I must send the letter as soon as possible. Mr Jones went into the Green Field, stopped at a distance from Mr Manning and Mr Watson, and said to Mr Watson and Mr Manning.' You have the advantage of me this place where I stand is very dirty.' Then walked up to them. A conversation then passed between Mr Jones a!.d Mr Manning aud Mr Watson, and to the best of my know- ledge Mr Jones mentioned something about a will, and one of them-but which I do not know-said, I have it,' but I was at a distance and could not hear distinctly. I saw when in the Newtown two large pistols, one in each of Mr Jones' coat pockets. After the conversation about the will had passed, and which conversation in the whole lasted five or eight minutes, or more-I cannot tell particu- larly how long—Mr Jones gave Mr Manning one of the pistols, who examined it, I believe; but they stood with their backs towards me, and I could not see very plain. I heard nothing said about pistols by either party. Mr Jones then walked to the nearest place, and Mr Manning walked a distance from him—about ltj yards—and stood on their side, but rather more fronting than sideway, opposite to one another. I understood Mr Manning say, I tire.' They both then put up their pistols and fired immediately both together, and as soon as I heard the re; ort Mr Jones fell. Mr Manning then run towards him to lift him up, and he lifted him up. I ran to him as soon as I could, and Mr Manning and Mr Watson were examining where the ball went. I was about sixty yards off when they fired. Mr Watson stood on the other side of Mr Jones and Mr Manning from where I stood, but I do not exactly re- collect the spot. Mr Manning endeavoured to pull the blood out of Mr Jones' mouth, who was then bleeding very much. Mr Manning desired Mr Watson to fetch somebody to him—I understood Mr Brooks or Mr Meakin. Mr Watson then immediately ran up the Green Fields. I saw the pistols and the hammers both up. Mr Manning and I took hold of Mr Jones by each arm to lead him back to the town, and when gone a little way met Robert Blagg on the Green Fiell near the I-tile going to Mr Lovell's field, and Mr Manning asked Mr Blagg to help me along with Mr Jones, and gave Blagg a handkerchief to put to Mr Jones' mouth; but Mr Jones took his own out of his pocket and held it to his mouth, then Mr Manning went away behind us. I did not look back to see which way he went, bat went along the middle of Mr Lovett's field when I saw Thomas Calcutt in the Green Field, and called him to fetch a chair, then I and Blagg led Mr Jones on till we came to the Sherra Mill, the same road we went, where Thomas Calcutt brought a chair, and Mr Jones sat down in it. I then asked him where we should take him to, and as well as I could understand him he said Jones'. Then Blagg, Calcutt, and myself carried him to Mr Jones' house in Whitchurch, they put the chair down within the shop door next the Red Lion, he got out of the chair himself and walked upstairs, and Joseph Wall followed him to assist him. I believe Mr Jones dropped in consequence of Mr Manning's fire, and also saith when Mr Jones fell and the witness come up Mr Watson went for a surgeon, and after he was gone Mr Manning said, It is sad work.' If (Signed) The mark x of Thomas Cross." The document from which the enclosed evidence is copied, is endorsed as follows :—•• Oct., 171W. Inquisition and exam'ns of Witnesses in the affair of the Duel between Richd. Pole Manning, surgn, and Capt. Thomas Jones in which Manning killed Jones, and for s'ch offence R. P. M. was tried and convicted at Shrewsbury Assizes, and sentenced to he after'd became a Lunatic, and died in a Lunatic Asylum at L'paol, and was buried on the 7th January, 1850." In the following number of Shreds and Patches," two correspondents write as follows In the endorsement of this curious old document a blank is left for the sentence which I have ventured to supply by the following iuformation. Mr Manning was tried at the Shropshire March Assizes, lbOO, for manslaughter and sentenced to a fine of six shillings and eightpence, and imprisonment for six months. No particulars of the trial are reported." (Signed) W.H. I presume J.E. refers to a paragraph I once wrote in the Byegones' columns of the Oswestry Advertiser, when he states that the duel between Capt. Jones and Mr Manning was not fought behind one of the hotels. The exact spot does not seem to me of very great importance, but I may state that it was the late Alderman J. T. Jones, J.P., of Oswestry (grandson of the gentleman killed) who gave me the particulars. Manning was Capt. Jones' ward, and the dispute was a family one, connected with some property." Croeswylan, Oswestry. (Signed) A.R. In an inquiry in 1881, the proprietors of the Shrews- bury Chronicle write: We enclose you the only one extract we can find relating to the duel named in your note. There is no mention at all of the inquest; nor can we find any account of the assizes. There was seldom any notice taken of events in those times by newspapers. They were mainly mere advertising sheets." Extract from the Shrewsbury Chronicle of Friday, October 25tb, 1799. On Tuesday morning last a duel was fought at Whitchurch between Capt. Jones, of Wrexham, and Mr Manning, surgeon, of Whitchurch, when the former received a shot in the mouth, which passed through by the left ear. Capt. Jones was alive yesterday, but not expected to recover. In the Gentleman's Magazine for November 1799 this entry appears among the deaths "Of the wounds he received in a duel, Thomas Jones, Esq., cornet of the Wrexham Cavalry." The following inscription is in the chancel of Wrex- ham Church:—" In memory of Thomas Jones, of Wrexham, in the county of Denbigh, who departed this life 26th of October, ann. dom., 1799, setat 61. Also of Jane.his first wife, who died 1st October, ann. dom., 1768, aetat 26. Ann, his second wife, who died 27th June, ann. dom., 1796, aetat 52. Ha ry, his second daughter by his last wife, who died an infant. Elizabeth, his third daughter, who .died September, ann. dom., 1796, aetat 17. Ann, his eldest daughter, wife of James Boydell, Esq., who died without issue, 23rd August, ann. dom., 1799, aetat 22; and of Richard, his second son by his last wife. who died un- married in the Island of Jamaica. 12th April, ann. dom., 1803, aetat 28. Is placed (a mournful record of the fragility of human life) this imperfect tribute of filial piety and fraternal affection." The following is copied from the inscribed stone in Wrexham churchyard, near the north west corner of the steeple Sacred to the memory of Richard Pate Manning, Esq., who died on the 1st January, 1850, aged 78 years." It is a remarkable fact that an old lady now living remembers the circumstance of the duel. She is the mother of Mr Charles Huxley, builder, Wrexham, and was then a girl living in Whitchurch, and recol- lects seeing the people going to and from the fields where it had taken place. Perhaps some other correspondents will be able to give further information towards completing the story. What was the exact cause of the quarrel ? How long was it until Dr. Manning became insane ? At what asylum did he remain in Liverpool ? Mr Rymer once remarked that some particulars on the subject had been collected by the family of thelate Mr Humphreys Jones, solicitor, who lived at Willow House, formerly the residence of Captain Jones. Willow House has disappeared to make room for the Willow Brewery. It appears in the view of Wrexham dated 1748, as Mr Pulford's house. Who can tell us something about Mr Pulfcrd ?—Yours &c..

I Trade Intelligence. r COAL AND IRON. BARBOW-IN-FURNESS, Monday.—The hematite iron is still quiet, and no change for the better is expected during this year but from the number of inquiries which are made for spring deliveries, there is reason to believe that a brisk trade will prevail in the early part of next year. Mixed qualities are quoted 56s net per ton at works, and No. 4 forge at 54s. There is a very good inquiry for steel in all departments. Ship- builders are moderately employed, but anxious for new orders. The coal and coke trades remain very steady, full prices being obtainable. Shipping is quiet, though not unusually so for the time of the year. MIDDLESBOROUGH, Tuesday.—Business has been stagnant, but prices are practically the same as last week, merchants' quotations for No. 3 being 42s 9d, and a few holders will accept less. Makers ask from 43s 6d to 44s, and most of them are well sold for next month and February. No change is likely now till the new year opens. Warrants seldom inquired for, and nominal in price. Connal's No. 3 is 42s Gd. Store declined 77 tons since last Tuesday. Shipments very poor. Lower prices for finished iron have brought in a few orders, but the severe weather interferes with deliveries. As work is irregular at the shipyards, platemakers will close their mills for a full week at Christmas. Ship-plates are £6 10s angles, 25 17s 6d and common bars 26, all less 2 per cent. WOLVERHAMPTON, Wednesday.—Quiet market this afternoon, but prices were fairly strong. Customers pressed for prompt deliveries of marked bars, cable iron, roofing sheets, and miscellaneous working up de- scription. Deliveries, are, however, impeded by the weather, which, as it is freezing the canals and hampering movement upon the railways, contracts the supply of fuel and pigs, and retards the despatch of the completed goods. More money was offered for coal for immediate supply, but in vain. Double and treble sheets were 1:9 aiid 210 upwards gas strip, 26 7s 6d bars, CG 10s upwards.
AGRICULTURE. THB CORN TRADE.—The Alark Lane Express saylt- The heavy snow-storm which occurred in most parts of the country last week has put a stop to all work on land in connection with wheat sowing. In London, soft native wheats have been practically unsaleable during the week, and for the best and driest samples the trade has been remarkably slow and difficult. Provincial exchanges have also been very slow, and in some of the most important of the Saturday's markets prices were quoted lower. Millers buy sparingly, and there is a general feeling of discouragement at the large quantities of flour which are now on the passage to the United Kingdom. Arrivals for the past three weeks have been very heavy, although comparatively small quantities have come to the port of London. Al- together the trade for breadstuffs is in a very de- pressed condition, but the more seasonable weather must, if continued, somewhat increase actual con- sumption, which it may do without causing prices to improve. Barley everywhere dull, weaker, and oc- casionally cheaper all round. Other articles remained unchanged at the close of the week. The trade for foreign wheats off stands in London is dwindling to the lowest possible ebb, as the close of the year ap- proaches, and prices remain the same. Foreign flour must be considered weaker, although no quotable change in London or Liverpool." LONDON AGRICULTURAL SEED TRADE, Wednesday. —Messrs. John Shaw and Sons, of Mark-lane, in their circular of to-day, report that firmness of tone continues to characterise the market for field seeds. Red cloverseed is steady. American advices still re- port diminished receipts. The English crop also appears to be very small. There is a good demand for Italian ryegrass at advanced prices. Fine qualities of trefoil are scarce and higher. Rape, hemp and canary seed are again dearer.
"J ,r. YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION V. HOLT ACADEMY.—This match should have been played last Saturday on the Association ground, but the Academy team did not appear. A first rate practice match was organized between two eleven) of the Association, under the captain (H. Cupleston) and vfce captain (Jno. Lewis). After a hard fought game the ca: fciia's side won by nine goals to four. DENBIGH V. RUTHIN.—A game of an hour's dura- tion was played at Ruthin on Saturday, and notwith- stonding that Ruthin were minus W. H. Roberts, W. P. Owen, and G. H. Simon (the two former being inter- national players), they succeeded in scoring a decisive victory of three goals to nil. The visitors played a plucky defensive game throughout, and the ability of their goalkeeper undoubtedly saved them from a more disastrous defeat whereas the services of the Ruthin goalkeeper were hardly once brought into requisition. ITEBNATIONAL FOOTBALL CONFERENCE.—A con- ference of representatives of the National Football Associations of England. Wales, Scotland and Ireland, was held at Manchester last week. The repre- sentatives present were—England Major Marinden, president of the English Association, who occupied the chair; and Mr W. Pierce Dix, of Sheffield. Wales Mr Llewellyn Kenrick (Ruabon), Mr W. P. Owen (Ruthin). Scotland Mr John Wallace and Mr Thomas Laurie, Glasgow. Ireland Mr John Sinclair and Mr J. M. M'Callery, Belfast. The ob- ject of the conference was to assimilate associations tor application to international matches, and it was agreed at the outset that the applications made should, pending ratification by the various associations, come into force at the international matches of the present season. The fifth rule was remodelled as follows :— When the ball is in touch, a player of the opposite side to that which kicked it out shall throw it in from the point of the boundary line where it left the ground. The thrower, facing the field of the play, shall hold the ball above his head and throw it in with both hands in any direction, and it shall be in play when thrown in. The player throwing it in shall not play it until it has been played by another player." The sixth rule was altered so as to read in harmony with the rule of the English Association, and the eighth and ninth were made to correspond with those of the Scotch Association, with the following addition to the ninth A player with his back towards his opponents' goal cannot claim the protection of this rule when charged from behind, provided in the opinion of the umpires or referee he is in this posiii)n wilfully impeding his opponent." The tenth rule was made to read according with the English rule. Some minor differences in the rules of the respective associa- tions were also adjusted. The chief alterations recom- mended by the conference, therefore, consist in the adoption of international matches of the Scotch rule as to throwing in from a touch," and of the English rule of off side."
THE WELSH CHALLENGE CUP. SECOND TIES. DOLGELLEY (IDRIS) V. ABLPftYSTwrrH. -This tie was played on the ground of the latter on Saturday, and resulted in a victory for the home team by two goals to nil. COEDPOETH V. WREXHAM.—These clubs met on Saturday at Coedpoeth to decide which should enter the third round for the Welsh Challenge Cup. The game terminated in favour of the Wrexhamites by four goals to two. The home team played hard and well, their goal-keerer especially distinguishing him- self, stopping shots innumerable, and it was through no fault of his that his team lost. G. Thomas, Burke, Griffiths, M. Davies, and R. Davies showed best form for the visitors. The following were the respective teams :—Coedpoeth Goal, S. L. Jones backs, T. R. Thomas (captain) and T. Williams half-backs, T. Valentine, R. Sanderson, and T. Giller right wing, G. Hooson and J. Jenkins; left wing, J. Pugh and D. Smith centre, C. Ellis umpire, J. S. Jones. Wrexham Goal. J.

THE ENGLISH CHALLENGE CUP. DRUIDS v. NORTHWICH VICTORIA.—The tie in the second round of the competition for the English As. sociation Challenge Cup between these clubs-the holders of the Welsh and Cheshire Challenge Cups re- spectively- -was played off on Saturday in Wynnstay Park, Ruabon. The ground was in anything but good condition, being covered with snow, and in consequence of the unfavorable weather there was not a very large gathering of spectators. Very soon after the game began it was evident that the Northwich men were overmatched, though they played pluckily to the end, and the goalkeeping of Palin was greatly admired. The first goal was scored three minutes after starting, by Albert Jones, and before halt-time two more were credited to the Druids by Bowen and Crosse. Change of ends did not approve matters I Foc?r the visitors, and the eame ended in a win for the Welshmen by five goals to nil. The two goals obtained in the second half were secured by Albert Jones and J. P. Owen. The teams were as follows :-Druids: Go-il, H. Adams hacks, J. Powell (captain) and A. Powell; half-backs, J. Jones and B. Roberts; right wing, E. Bowen and W. P. Owen left wing, J. Vaughan and A. Jones centres, K. Crosse and J. P. Davies. Um- pire, Mr LI. Kenrick.-Northwich Goal, J. Palin backs, F. W.

THE REASON WHY so many are unable to take Cocoa is that the varieties commonly sold are mixed with starch, under the plea of rendering them soluble while really making them thick, heavy, end indi- gestible. This may be easily detected, far if Cocoa thickens in the cup it proves the addition of stareh. Cadbury's Cocoa Essence is genuine it is therefore three times the strength of these Cocoas, and a re- freshing beverage like tea or coffee. 1390 ELLIS'S, SCHEWEPPK sand E iisbury and Co's.
