=-. I MOLD. I THE MARKET IIALL.—We understand that several j architects have visited the Market Hall with the view ) of submitting designs for its alteration. It is hoped I now that &):nethi:.g e?ctual and worthy of the town may be dune. THE KAMA, AY STATION.—The Company have taken away the horse-box siding on the town side of the station this week, a gang of men being employed for that purpose, and for erecting, or rather extending the "down" platform to the railway bridge. This will add to the convenience of the station very materially, especially at holiday seasons, when the cramped accommodation was the source of much in- convenience and some danger. THE LOCAL BOARD ELECTION.This event, which in some former years caused a great deal of excite- ment, is now but little talked of. The retiring members are Messrs H. Lloyd Jones, G. H. Adams, J. Hughes, Wiiliam Evans, and Dr. Thos. Williams. Whether they will be re-nominated, or whether there will be opposition, we know not. It is said that some are ambitious of the honor and inclined to put the town to an expense of a contest, but the general feeling is in favor of avoiding one if that may by any means be done. VESTKY MEETING.—On Thursday morning, at the Vestr"y in the churchyard, Mr J. Corbett in the chair Messrs Edward Griffiths, Job Edwards, James Griffiths, and George Taylor were unanimously re- nominated as overseers for the forthcoming year. Messrs J. Corbett, E. P. Edwards, E. Jones, Gwern- affield E. Jones, Bistre and E. Peters, Leeswood, were also unanimously re-elected as Guardians for the next year and it was stated that Mr Griffiths was also willing to stand for Nerquis. so that no change would take place in the personnel of the Board. The accounts of the Burial Board were produced, from which it appeared there was a small balance in hand. THE WATER Sri-I'LY.—A fortnight ago a serio- comic paragraph appeared in our columns with re- sjiect to the Mold water supply, which the share- holders in that property object to as being depreciatory to their interests. We are instructed by the writer of the paragraph in question, to state that nothing was further from his intention than to annoy these gentle- men in any way, and that he regrets exceedingly that any words of his can be made to bear any such con- struction as has been put upon them. He further adds that, as a matter of fact, the reservoirs have been full and overflowing all this year, which, indeed, is and has been palpable to all who know the circum- stances. The writer withdraws all and any impu- tations, and assures us it was never his intention to make any. THEATK:<-AI. ENTERTAINMENTS.—Mr James Scott's Dramatic Company have been performing at the Market Hall Assembly Rooms, during this and last week. Several popular plays and farces have been put on the stage and performed in a very creditable manner for a travelling company. As a rule most of the dramatic companies that have visited this town have been failures so far as their performances were concerned, but we must say that Mr Scott's company is an cxception to the above rule. The following pieces have bt-en playedThe two Orphans." East Lynne," Madeline, the Woman of the People," New Magdalen." The Colonel, Turn Him Out," Hole in the Wall," and the pantomimes of Ilobinson < Jrusoe" and Aladdin," all of which were very .enj"yable,e>;}JecialJ;v" The Colonel, which was mostfavorably received. We have no doubt that on their next visit to our town this talented company will receive the liberal support which their performances merit. GRAND ("ON< On Wednesday evening a grand concert was given in the large assembly room, Market Mall, in aid of the funds of the Mold Cricket Club. There was a good and appreciative audience, and the arrangements throughout were of the most satisfactory character. The programme included a couple of over- tures by the Ruthin string band, under the conductor- ship of Mr Walmsley. Both were of a high character and much appreciated by the elite of the audience, while many regrets were expressed that Mold had no institution of the kind. Miss Amy LawHon sang two songs, receiving on each appearance a very flattering reception. Mr A. H. Parry sang "The Little Organ lioy," and True Till Death." Mr G. H. Adams, "The Village Blacksmith Mr J. T. Lewis, "The P,ilgrimof Love," each and all of them being excel- lently received. Messrs Lewis and Adams saag "The Moon has raised her lamp above," with very good effect. Mrs Douglas' two songs, "Tit for Tat," awl" Comc hack to Erin," were deservedly and loudiy enured. The other artiste was Miss Bessie Halt (of the Manchester concerts), whose debut at Mold was a very decided success, she being encored on each appearance. The accompanist was Mr Young, organist >f the Mold Parish Church, who, with Miss Eil wards, of Pent-re, and Mr Arthur Williams, played couple of duets on the pianoforte, both of which were admired, and who did his duties most eftieien tly throng hOllt. LITERARY ENTERTAINMENT. -On Monday evening a literary entertainment in connection with the Sun- day School wns held at the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. Maesydre. The chair was taken by Dr. Thos. Williams, of Woodlands, who opened the pro- ceedings with a few remarks congratulatory of the work done in Maesydre Sunday School. The chair- man's address was followed b.y a part song by the children a discussion, in which part!- were taken by Miss S. ,J one-i and Masters D. Jones, J. Williams, ,and J. Byran glee, E.

Rowlands and Misses A. Griffiths and M. Williams song, Mist M. Walters recitation, Miss A. Roberts; trio, Messrs. E. Jones, J. Williams, and R. Foulkes competition on an impromptu speech, subject 'othing," four came forward and the prize was given to Mr S. Jones, who returned it in aid of the funds. The entertainment was con- cluded with the winging of the anthem Teyrnasaed y Ddaeer, after which a vote of thanks to the chair- man was moved by Mr Robert Jones, Rhydygolen, seconded by Mr Ishmael Jones, Bridge-street, and passed by acclamation. The chairman briefly ac- knowledged, and in doing so offered the prize of 10.. and 5s for the best essays on the proper performance of the office of deacons, the writers to take a negative and positive view of the subject. THE BOARIJ SCHOOLS.—The report of Mr T. Morgan O.ven, Her Majesty's Inspector of Schools for this district, on the annual examination of these schools is to hand, and is highly satisfactory both to the staff, the Board, and the ratepayers generally. The following is the text of the report:— Soys' School.—The boys sang one song fairly well, the other song gave evidence of lack of preparation, whiist I singing it the voices were shrill and somewhat harsh. The grammar was very good in each standard. The g ography of the second standard was very fair, of the third, fourth. and sixth standards pretty good, and map knowledge about good of the fifth standar(I very good in smiie respects, and map knowledge good The standard work of tiie fir-t and I second standards wa" very good. In the fourth standard the arithmetic was fair, and the rest of the work good Of the thir l, fitch, and sixth standards good in every way. Registration was good. I am sorry that military drill has been neglected. Girl, .ichool.—The work of this school was very good in most, particulars, some of it was excellent. Mrs Jones is an excellent oisciplinariiin. I beg to congratulate her upon lias-inn hundred per cent. The pupil teacher Smedley has finished her apprenticeship with credit. —The infants of the first class were very good in spelling, writing and color. Hood in form, tables, reading (some were- very good in this subject), intelligence, and arithmetic, viva voce. Pretty good in intelligence and objects, and moderate in arithmetic on slates, as out of twelve only five had two sums right, and nine one right. The second class was good in spelling, form, and, color, fair in writing and intelligence, pretty fair in reading. The arithmetic and knowledge of objects need care. The third class were good in form and color, pretty good in I arithmetic rivit voce, spelling, reading, and writing, and fair in ev ry other subject. The fourth class were prettn- good in alphabet, pretty fair in Objects and writing, and fair in every other respect. The needlework was very good. Exercises and registration good, and singing pretty" good. We may add that the total amount of grant gained j has been ?G3 4s, the amount last year being ?3?7 1?- showing an increase on the year of ?N5 '?. When it is considered that this has been done in the face of what is understood a declining population, the ex- cellence of the work done will be more apparent. It i would be interesting to give a few more figures J showing the contrast. In the boys' school last year the number presented was 130, this year there were 160. In the girls' school last year this year lOli. In the infants', last year, 106, this year, IP). The amount of grant earned by each department has been as follows :-Boys, £160 14s; girls, ttl- i 1.4s infants, £84 16s. In the year 1869 the amount of grant gained by these schools was 1:29, and in the year 1870, the first year under Mr Jones—the present iiiasier-niatiageineiit The amount has been steadily growing ever since, a fact which speaks very highly for the excellence of the management. BUCKLEY. EDUCATIONAI,.—We learn that Miss Mary Aston, late pupil teacher at Buckley National Schools, has succeeded in gaining a teacher's certificate, at an examination held at Manchester College. BLUE RIBBON ABMY.—The series of meeting., in connection with the Gospel Temperance Mission which commenced on the 5th inst. were brought to a close on Friday evening. The proceedings throughout have proved quite a success, upwards of 1000 pledges or ribbons having been taken. PRIMITIVE METHODIST BAND or HOPE.—On Tues- day evening a very interesting entertainment was held at the Old Chapel, Mill Lane, in connection with the Band of Hope. Mr Edward Davies, Mount pleasant, presided, and a capital programme, which consisted of songs, readiii.-S, &c., was successfully gone through. Addresses were also delivered by Messrs William Brown, Peter Kendrick, and Thomas Place. WONDERFUL ESCAPE OF A COLLIER.—A collier named Edward Jones, employed at the Lis ham Green Colliery, had a very narrow escape on Monday. It appears that he was engaged in one of the workings about half-way down the pit, putting the loaded tubs on to the carrier. He was putting a tub on, when the rope suspending the carrier suddenly snapped, and the loaded tub and carrier fell to the bottom of the pit. Jones only escaped being dragged with them bv grasping at the signal wire. A few weeks aco a collier lost his life by falling down the pit at the same spot. THE LATE COLLIERY ACClDENT.An inquest was held on Tuesday at the Grand Stand, Burnt Wood, Buckley, before Mr P. M. Evans, deputy coroner, and a jury of whom Mr James Lamb was foreman, on the body of a collier named William Hulley, Pentre, who lost his life through being burnt bv an explosion of gas while he was at work down the Sandycroft Colliery on the 9th inst. The poor fellow lingered in great pain up to Saturday night when he expired. He leaves a wife and three children. The inquest was adjourned until the 29th inst., to enable the Govern- ment Inspector of Mines to be present. VOLUNTEER INTELLIGENCE.—A detachment of the I 1st Lancashire Engineer Volunteers is to arrive at Queen's Ferry on Thursday, for the purpose of going through a course of bridging. It is understood that I they will form a barrel pier to enable them to cross the Dee. They will take up their quarters at the i Queen's Ferry Hotel, and remain there till next Mon- day. We trust that they will have a favorable time for their operations. According to the programmes that have just been issued to the members of the 1st Flintshire (Buckley) Engineer Voltmteer*. we nonce that it is their intention to practice the same a little 1 later on in the season, but instead of remaining at, Queen's Ferry they will form a raft, whrch will be ¡ made of barrels, &c., lashed together, and take a trip ) down the river Dee to Chester (on same), and back to Queen's Ferrv the same day. This item on the pro- gramme is looked forward to with great interest amongst the members of the corps. BRUNSWICK WESLEY AN CHAPEL.—The annual dis- tribution of prizes in connection with the Sabbath School, was held in the above-mentioned place of worship, on Sunday afternoon. There was a very good attendance, and the meeting throughout proved a successful one. The chair was occupied by Mr i John Lamb, manager. Lane End, who delivered a most appropriate address, and also distributed the prizes to the successful pupils. An excellent pro- gramme, performed by the scholars in a most credit- able manner, consisted of songs, recitations, dialogues, &c. The choir, under the leadership of Mr Joshua Sharratt, sang four anthems with pleasing effect. Mr John Catherall presided at the organ. The num- ber of prizes distributed was about 53, and consisted of handsome and well-selected books. A tribute of well merited praise is due to Mr John Lamb, Mr Thomas Catherall (superintendents), and Mr John Lewis (secretary), and to the teachers generally, for the very efficient state of the Sabbath School, which numbers over 100 scholars. CEFN AND RHOSYMEDRE. THE OLD FOLKS TEA PARTY.—Through a com- positor's blunder the names of two of the members of the committee—Messrs. George Edwards, Trevor j House, and E. O. Jones, Acrefair-were inatft;! vertently omitted in our report last week. It should also be stated that Mr George Edwards gave each j family, represented by the old folk-, a quarter of a pound of tea. I CORWEN. 1 SPECIAL PETTY SESSIONS, MARCH 10TH.— Before the Hon. C. H. Wynn and Dr. Walker. ¡ A Disorderly Chai-arter. -William Williams, Peny- bryn, Corwen, a very old and well-known offender, j was charged by P.C. Thomas Jones with being drunk and creating a disturbance in Hill-street, at 11.30. on the night of the last Corwen March fair.—The officer j in his evidence said he was called by Mary Williams, the prisoner's mother, to her house to turn him out. He went in, and asked prisoner to be quiet. He re- I fused to do so, and witness turned him out. When in the street he became very abusive, and used in-' decent language, and witness had to lock him up. From enquiries subsequently made, it appeared that the house where Mary Williams and the prisoner I lived was claimed by each of them, the former stating that the house was her property after her husband's death, and the prisoner made a claim as the oldest son now living.—The prisoner said that he had a perfect right to be in the house on the night in question, and ¡ tae officer had no right to turn him out.—The Hon. C. H. Wynn said they could not deal with the ques- tion of title.—Bound over in the sum of £5 to keep the peace for six months, and to pay costs. .?fM?ctKd and Wife.—David Davies, Cynwyd, was charged by P.C. Richard Price with assaulting and beating his wife on March 13th.—The complainant said: At one o'clock on Tuesday morning, March 13th, 1 was at Cynwyd and saw the defendant's wife and daughter at the corner of the Lion Inn. I asked them what they were doing out at that time of the morning, and the wife said they were afraid of going into the house because her husband was abusing her. I went up with them to the house. Defendant was in bed shouting and threatening to kick his wife until the was black. Defendant came down from bed, ran and sent his wife out, closed the door, and went back so bed. The wife returned into the house, and the defendant got up again and ran after her into the street, got hold of her by the neck and sent her against the wall. I prevented him doing any more harm.—Elizabeth Davies, defendant's wife, cor- roborated this evidence.—Bound over in ClO to keep the peace for six months, and to pay costs, 13s Gd. DENBIGH. I SCHOLASTIC.—Miss Selina Rowlands, of Meirion House, and assistant teacher at Yron Goch Infant school, has successfully passed the Government Ex- amination at Liverpool, and become a full certificated teacher. Miss Parry Williams, daughter of Mrs Daniel Parry IVilliam-i, of High-street, has also passed the same examination. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.—A man named Isaac James, Love-lane, cut his throat on Sunday morning and was I' carried to the Infirmary whrre he died on Monday morning. He was about 70 years of age and had been for a long time afflicted with asthma, and though he I had cut his throat, and made it bleed, the actual I cause of death was the asthma, consequently no inquest was necessary. MUNICIPAL.—Mr David Davies, farmer, the Lodge farm, in the parish of Henllan, takes the place of Air Evan Thomas, late of the Foundry, who has retired from the Council. As the term of office expires in November next there was no contest, Mr Davies being the only one nominated. The Council now contains two Henllan members, viz., Mr W. T. Foulkes and Mr D. Davies. The political balance of the Council remains unaltered. FIRE.—During the progress of the Missionary meet- ing in the Town Hall on Monday evening the fire-bell resounded through the building and caused some un- easiness. After a brief interval it sounded again, and this time the meeting was speedily cleared of all its I male auditors. Outside it was found that the bursting of a lamp glass at Mr Hughes' (ironmonger) had I caused the alarm. Capt. J ohn Lloyd, Lieut. Joyce, and several other members of the Fire Brigade were soon there, and the appliances being close at hand the fire was soon put out. CHURCH MISSIONARY SOCIETY. The annual meet- ing of the branch of this society was held cn Monday evening in the Town Hall. The Rector (the liev. John Morgan) presided, and Bishop Beckles, late of Sierra Leone, gave a very interesting account of his labors in that place. A vote of thanks was passed to the Bishop on the motion of Mr R. Lloyd Williams and Mr T. Gold Edwards. From an account dis- tributed at the meeting we find that 1:32 14s Sd was collected by the branch last year, of which Mr Gold Edwards collected £ 5 17s (id, and Mrs Mostyn j65 2s Od. the church services produced .£10 17s Od, of which iS 15s 9d was collected at the English and 15s 8d at the Welsh services, Whitchurh collecting 25s. Bishop Beckles preached at both churches on the Sunday. ENGLISH CHAPEL REUNION.—On Friday evening the deacons of the English Chapel, Vale-street, invited the whole of the members and congregation to a social cup of tea and a family gathering. The tea was elegantly laid out in the schoolroom by Mrs E. T. Jones, Mrs W. Price Jones, and Mrs William Parry, Holland House, assisted by Mrs Symonds Jones. Miss E. T. Jones, Miss Hughes, Miss Fraser, Mrs Sidebottom Jones, &c., as well as other kind friends. A considerable number accepted the invita- tion, and a very pleasant evening was spent. After tea, Alderman E. T. Jones, J.P., the senior deacon, was voted to the chair, when Mr W. Price Jones read the church accounts, and gave some explanation. Mr W. Parry read the building account statements, and from these it appeared that upwards of 1:400 had been raised by various means during the year, and although there was a large debt, the finances were in good condition, and a very great deal was done con- sidering the size of the church. An appropriate address was delivered by the Rev. Lewis Ellis, Rhuddlan. He spoke of the chapel as one of the finest of its size in all North Wales, and the work done in it and that schoolroom were the subject of conversation and enquiry in many places where he, as secretary of the English 'Causes fund, went to. Brief speeches were also made by Mr Owen, Mr Moyes, Mr Joseph Parry, &c. Mt John Williams and Miss Minnie Jones gave a couple of excellent song?. Mrs W. Parry presided at the onran, which was lately presented by Mr W. Weston for the use of the school. COUNTY COIJT, TUESDAY. Before Horatio lloyd, Esq., judge. There were 173 new plaints, 13 adjourned cases, and 48 judgment summonses. The Statfite of Limitations.—Mr Edward Angel and Mr T. J. Williams, as executors of the late W. Simon, sued Mrs Williams, late of the Cross Foxes, Henllan, for a quantity of hay sold and delivered.— Mr A. Symonds Jones appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr. D. Roberts (Davies and Roberts, Rhyl) for the defendant. The wlio.e contention was as to the time the hay was sold, Mrs Simon contending that it was in 1877 and Mrs Williams contending that it was in 1875.-Jeremiah Pierce testified that he was thirteen years of age in 187?, and he during that time fetched I two lots of bay.—The Judge examined the book, and taking the evidence there, decided for the plaintiffs. Hughes v. Littler and Williams.—This case, which had been twice adjourned, was one in which Mr John Hughes, grocer and provision merchant, Bridge-street, sought to recover 1:14 3a Gd. the balance due on account of transactions which he had had with Littler and Williams, of Abergele, Denbigh, &c., through their late manager at Denbigh, Mr M. Milward.— Mr Ll. Adams, of Ruthin, appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr E. H. Roberts, Rhyl, for the defendants.— The case excited great interest, and the evidence was long, intricate, and tedious.—From the evidence of the plaintiff it appeared that in 1881 and 1882, during the time of Air Milwar;l's management, he was asked by David Thomas to let them have a few sacks of bran in order to serve customers, they being out of bran at the time. This was done, and afterwards the transaction grew until plaintiff ordered a lot of bran, &c., from the North Shore Mills, part of which was delivered at their establish- ment in Vale-street, and part to his own place, both by Littler and Williams' own horses and carts. He was also allowed the full discount upon the whole quantity, whether delivered to himself or Littler and II Williams. The sacks were regularly returned, and many of the empty ones went to Littler and Williams at Abergele. Cheques were paid to him, but he never looked at the signature, only at the amount, and that agreeing with the invoice, he at once paid it away to the North Shore Mill Company's travellilr without further ado.—David Thomas said that he did the ordering or first borrowing for Mr Milward, and Mr Hughes did the transaction for Littler and Williams because the North Shore Mill would not serve other I millers with bran, &c., without they also took flour. Confronted with a cheque signed by Milward, Mr I Hughes declared that until that occasion he had not I been aware of the signature, and did not know Mil. ward before these transactions. There must have II been some 300 North Shore and J. H. sacks passing between them, but no entry was made of these traL- sactions. An account from the North Shore Mill Company showed a transaction with Mr Hughes I between January 26h, 1881, and September 2nd, 1882, of £864. Mr Adams contended that the point of law was, was Mr Milward authorised to transact I business so as to bind his principals ?—Robert Phillips, late apprentice, said that from February, 1881, to I October, 1882, Milward managed the shop, and he saw sacks bearing the initials of J. H. and N. S. M. in the warehouse with others. He went twice to John Hughes, and obtained sacks of meal, &c., in Littler and Williams' name. Some of those empty sacks had gone to Abergele; he had packed them. Mr Roberts cross-examined this witness as to his trial I and acquital, but the Judge ruled that the supposed confession was as inadmissable now as upon his trial. The witness however stated that Mr Millward kept a lot of pigs in the garden, as many as 10 at a time. Mrs Millward used to take things from the shop. and Mr Millward used to take meal for the pigs, but be never saw either put anything down. He also used to 1 take money from Mr Millward to both banks. It was put in his name at the National Provincial and in I the name of the firm at the North and South Wale. ¡ Did not know how Millward divided the mone>. The Judge said it did not matter for he had heard quite enough to satisfy him that there was a fraud going on.-John Williams, a youth from Hugh! Hughes and Co., opposite, testified to having lent: sacks of bran to Littler and Williams on application by boys, &c.-Robert Owen, grocer, &c., High-street, testified to the same thing, it being quite a regular thing in the trade. He had done it scores of times.— J. Williams, for three months manager in succession to I Millward, spoke to borrowing and Richard Williams, manager to E. P. Jones and Co., said they had done ) the same and felt quite justified.-In answer to the Judge, the last witness said, had it been a large transaction he should have submitted it to his em- ployer. Mr Roberts then addressed the Court, but his Honor stopped him. saying that Millward's general 11 agency was quite admitted, and had he a right to do ) what he did ? Had the case stopped there he should have said he had, or that Littler and Williams had I become aware of it and consented.— For the defence, Mr E. H. Roberts called Mr Williams, Rhyl, who now is the head of the firm, Mr Littler having retired. He deposed to visiting the shop at Denbigh, but had never seen any strange sacks.-Mr William Owen, ( manager of the branch shops in the district, said he took stock regularly, and visited the shops once or twice every week. He described the manner of dealing with return sacks at Abergele, and that he never saw or heard of such sacks there. Never heard of this transaction until November 28th. 1882, when on taking stock at Denbigh he found a large deficit. Spoke to John Hughes after his name was found in the pass book, in connecction with transactions amounting to JE700. Hughes told witness that there was a balance of 214 odd due to him, but that Milward wished that fact to be kept quiet.—Mr Hughes (through Mr Adams) denied this conversation in toto.-Cross-exanine(i Sometimes they did fall abort of stock for a day or two, but would rather that customers should be inconvenienced rather than borrow. (Laughter.) All goods in the shop were supplied from Absrgele, but that state- ment was not written over the shop door.— Thomas Williams, who said he had been 13 years with Littler and Williams at Abergele. He took in all returned sacks and booked them. Had had no N.S.M. sacks since November, 18S1. If strange sacks came he should enquire of the master. Had seen no empty sacks of J.H. or N.S.M.—Robert Jone, who passed the sacks through his own hands | for twelve years, gave similar evidence.—The Judge thought that Mr Millward took very good care that no J.H. or N.S.M. (North Shore Mill) sacks should be seen on the premises. No doubt temporary borrowing was quite within the scope of an agent's authority, but wholesale transactions like the one described could clearly not possibly be brought within it. He believed Hughes must have known that he was assisting in the gross fraud which Millward was r committing all the time. The verdict must be for the defendants with costs on the ordinary scale. The court was densely crowdad, and the case excited much interest. FLINT. HOLY WEEK.—During the week special services ap-1 propriate to the season have been held in the Parish Church. Morning prayers have been reid daily at eleven in addition to the usual week-day services. THE VOLUNTEERS.-The first drill for this year of the Flint Company of the 1st Flint and Carnarvon Rifle Volunteers took place on Thursday evening. There was a good attendance. We understand that the annual dinner of the Company takes place on Thursday next. ST. PAT-RICK'S DAY.—On Saturday last the anni- versary of the patron saint of Ireland was quietly ob- served in Flint by the Irish members of the popula- tion, who adorned themselves with sprigs of shamrock. A ball was held in the Assembly Rooms at night. The day passed off without any of the demoralizing brawls which used to be considered an essential part of the day's celebrations. Tows COUNCIL.—A special meeting of the Council was held on Monday, Ald. R. Muspratt (mayor) pre- siding, to consider the question as to the construction of a subway under, or of a footbridge over, the Ches- ter and Holyhead line at Flint Station. Mr Wood, district superintendent, and Mr Smith, engineer, were present as representing the railway company. The London and North Western Railway Company pro- I posed to erect a footbridge at a certain point over the railway, and to encroach on the public road in its con- struction and the matter was discussed at the last meeting of the Council, when it was decided to write I to the Company, asking that their engineer should at- I tend Monday's meeting. As already stated, that ) gentleman, accompanied by Mr E. Wood, were pre- ￼ sent on Monday, and produced plans of the bridge proposed by the Company. In the co irse of a dis- I cussion which took place, several members expressed the opinion that the erection of a bridge as proposed would be an eyesore, and thatit would be preferable that the present level crossing should also be kept open. Mt Wood, however, intimated that if the Company went to the expense of erecting a bridge, they could not allow the crossing to be used. Ultimately Mr J. Liebig Muspratt proposed, and Ald. Mawdesley seconded, a motion setting forth that the bridge, which is of duplex build, for passengers and the public, should be erected nearer the station than proposed, and on the Chester side of the signal-box. This was agreed to, and Mr Smith promised to lay amended plans before the directors of the company. I HOLYWELL. A DISTINGUISHED HERO OF TEL-EL-KEBIR.—Lord I Fielding, eldest son of the Right Hon. the Earl of Denbigh, arrived in Holywell on Monday afternoon, on a visit to his home, and on Tuesday, after luncheon at Pantasaph, his Lordship visited Holywell and called upon several of the principal tenantry of the t Downing estates, accompanied by Mr R. W. Hughes, of Upper Downing, where his Lordship stayed during ￼ his brief visit. This was the first visit paid to Holy- 1 well by Lord Fielding after his distinguished services with his regiment (the Royal Artillery), in the 'I Egyptian campaign. THE UPPER MARKET H.NLL.-The Welsh Flannel Manufacturing Company have not been long in turning into use the right given them by the Local Board to use the Upper Market Hall for warping purposes, owing to the destruction of one of their mills by fire. One fine new warping mill, constructed on an improved principle, arrived at the Market Hall on Monday, and another is expected there before the close of the present week. ATTEMPTED OUTRAGE UPON FATHER liE RADLITZ. —The Rev. Father Hazra de Radlitz, chief of the Jesuit Fathers at Ditton Hall, who is well-known in Holywell, where he recently preached a series of eloquent mission sermons, was on his return home on Thursday, handed a smail parcel, which the postman had delivered on the previous day. It was wrapped up in paper, and well fastened with string. '1 here was a label attached which bore the address of Father de Radlitz, and the writing was evidently that of an educated person, though it was difficult to decipher whether it was a male or female hand. There were two penny stamps on the label, which bore the Liver- pool post-mark. As soon as Father de Radlitz re- ceived it he said he did not like the appearance of it, and cautiously cutting the string with his penknife, he found inside the paper a round wooden box, about three inches deep and an inch and a half in diameter, similar to those which druggists put up ointment in. On removing the lid, he perceived that it was filled with a black mass, similar to gunpowder, but which, on account of its lightness, is believed to be dynamite. In the centre of the mass was a star-shaped hole, in which a fuse had been inserted, and which, along with the means for igniting it, had apparently fallen out. The rev. gentleman's first impulse was to go into the ground around the hall, and throw it against the wall, in order to ascertain whether it contained a detonating substance, but he afterwards decided to hand it over to the police, and he accordingly sent for Police-Sergt. Coutts, and lie delivered it up to him. As the package was too large to be put into the letter-box, it must have been handed across the couuter at Liverpool, and as it is believed that the Post-office official who received it will be able to recognise the person who delivered it, the police, who are accordingly reticent concerning the matter, be- lieve they have an excellent clue. Father de Radlitz M not aware of having offended anyone. OSWESTRY. ACCIDENT. --A youth named Williams, who resides with his father in Albert-road, and who is employed by Messrs Fotherby, was on Tuesday engaged in cleaning one of the horses at the stable in Oswald- road, and whilst so engaged he was kicked on the side of the head by the horse. His ear was cut through and a deep wound inflicted upon his head. He was carried home, where he was attended by several medical gentlemen. WEEKLY CATTLE FAm.-The sales of stock in the Smithfield on Wednesday last were slightly better, and were as follows :-Mr T.

C. McKie sold 32 cattle and calves; and Mr G. R. Bayley sold a number of sheep and pigs. THE SCHOOL BOARD'S ATTENDANCE OFFICER.—At the meeting of the Board on Tuesday, the Rev. W. Howell Evans presiding, the attendance officer (Mr H. Harrison) renewed his application for an increase of salary. He had discharged the duties of the office for six years.—Mr George Owen thought the officer was underpaid, and on his motion, seconded by Dr. Beresford, it was decided to increase the salary from twenty to twenty-five shillings a week, with an under- standing that any further application for increase would not be entertained. ST. PATRICK'S DAY.t social gathering of Irish- men in Oswestry and neighbourhood was held in the Wynnstay Hotel, Oswestry, on Saturday, in honor of their patron saint, Dr. Beresford presiding. After an excellent dinner, the toasts of "The Queen," "The Prince and Princess of Wales, and the rest of the Royal Family," were drunk with loyalty. Other toasts followed, together with national songs and music. All present wore the shamrock. Amongst i those present were Mr Martin, C.E., Liverpool Cor-I poratkn (vice-president); Dr. Manning, Llanv- rnynech Messrs Boyle, Beresford, jun., G. S. Byrne, J. D. Latimer, I. H. Tombs, and E. Latimer. Mr A. Knight and Dr. Cartwright were also present as English visitors. After spending a very pleasant evening, the meeting broke up at 11 o'clock. BAPTISM BY IMMERSION.—On Sunday evening the Baptist Chapel was filled to overflowing, when the Rev. G. Archer preached from the text, Why baptizest thou," and referred to the mode of baptism as practised by the Apostles and the early Christian Church, and its simplicity as contrasted with the Romish practice of infant sprinkling. Mr Archer said that as Baptists they could not claim to be better than Christians of other communities, but as other bodies continued to practice an unscriptural error it was the duty of Baptists to preach it down and denounce it in every possible way. It had no scripture warrant and its doom was certain. At the close of the sermon Mr Archer immersed four candi- dates, and said he thought of having another baptism in a month, and he should be glad to see any who wished to converse on the subject of baptism, and if they desired it, to talk with them as to their immersion. ROBBING HIS PARE.NT-At the Borough Police Court, on the 16th inst., before the Mayor, W. H. G. Weaver, Esq., and E. Shaw, Esq., William Jones (31), laborer, was charged with stealing a blanket, the property of his father, Thomas Jones, who is a sawyer living in Church-yard.—Rachael Jone&, the mother of the prisoner, said he had been living with them for some time. On Tuesday last she was told he was trying to sell a blanket, and shortly afterwards she missed one off a bed in the honse. Some time previously she had told the prisoner that if he would be a good man she would give him that blanket when he went to keep house for himself. Prisoner had been a soldier, but left his regiment about seven years before, and had been living with them ab?ut three years, and they had had a good deal of trouble with him. The blanket would be worth about 5s. When prisoner came home on the night of II the 13th he was "rather fresh." The next morning she asked him for the blanket, and he said he would go and fetch it.—Elijah Swift, printer, Arthur-street, ¡' said prisoner went to his house on the Tuesday night and offered to sell a blanket to him for 3s. Prisoner several times said he would swear on his oath that it was his property. Eventually witness bought it from him for 2s 6d. Shortly afterwards he was told that prisoner had stolen the blanket from his parents, and he immediately sent some one to tell them where it was. The prisoner was the worse for beer when he sold the article.—Prisoner was sentenced to 21 days' hard labor. e A MISSING TRADESMAN.—Considerable excitement was caused on Saturday by the reported disappear- ance of Mr William Owen, who has for many years carried on the business of a watchmaker in Cross- street. It appears he was last seen in the town shortly after noon on the previous day, and subse- quently on the same day he was seen in the vicinity of the Hengoed, both by Mr P. O. Gill and Mr Peate. The matter was placed in the hands of the police, and, a statement having been circulated on Monday that he had been seen on Friday booking by the afternoon train, inquiries were made by telegraph on Tuesday morning as to whether he had gone on a visit to some friends at Newtown. The inquiries i elicited no information, and on Tuesday seatchtng operations were carried on on an extensive scale in the district around the town of Oswestry, but so far with- out any result. The information as to Mr Owen having teen seen on Friday is somewhat conflicting, for whilst a boy maintains that he saw him take a ticket at the Cambrian Railway booking office about half-past two, Mr Gill and Mr Peate express them- selves as certain that they had seen him near the Hengoed about three the same afternoon. The ponce description of the missing man states that he is forty- three years of age, 5 feet 9 inches high, has rather a pale face, dark brown hair, which is turning grey, small moustache, no whiskers, and is bald on the top of his head. He was dressed in a dark coat, brown trousers, and waistcoat to match, with grey macintosh, and black, round hard hat. Mr Owen had habitually taken chlorodyne, and was not in good health at the time of his disappearance. COUNTY COURT. SATURDAY.—Before W. Cope, Esq., deputy judge. There were entered for hearing eleven adjourned cases, 1G8 new plaints, 19 judgment summonses, and two jury cases. Thomas Harper v. Richard B,.own.-This was an action tried by a jury, and in it the plaintiff, a labourer residing at West Felton, sued the defendant, a gentleman larmer, residing at Ruyton-xi-Towns, for JE12 for damages sustained by the plaintiff by reason of the defendant as the driver of a certain horse and trap, having on the 6th December last negligently and carelessly driven against the plaintiff, whereby he was knocked down and driven over, thereby sustain- ing the injuries named.—Mr W. Bull appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr R. H. Ellis for the defendant. —The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff for the amount claimed.—It is stated that the defendant intends to move for a new trial on the ground that the verdict was against the weight of evidence and the direction of the judge. Claim for Injury tJ a Horse.—In this case—G. R. Bayley v. Frederick Fletcher-which was tried before a jury, the plaintiff sought to recover from the defendant the sum of B8 9s, for injuries inflicted upon a horse, the property of the plaintiff.—Mr R. H. Ellis appeared for the plaintiff and Mr W. I. Bull for the defendant.—The plaintiff said he was an auctioneer, residing in Upper Church-street, Oswestry. On August 15th last he had a horse in a field near his house. He fixed the day as he had a sale on Monday, August 21st. He saw the horse in the field several times on August 15th, and returned home between ten and eleven that night, and then the horse was not behaving as he usually did. There were two lamps near the field, and one of them parti- ally lit the field. The hedge is about six feet high, and in August it was in bloom. There was no gap in it. The horse was in the habit of going on a mound under a tree near the road to shade himself. As soon as he discovered that the horse's eye was injured he called a veterinary surgeon. He believed the horse was still blemished. He believed the veterinary surgeons' bill amounted to 2.3 9s.—Cross-examined When standing on the mound the horse could reach considerably over the hedge. The field was the same with that which contained the whirligig." There was but one horse in the field, and it had been there six months. lie had given £2fl 10s for it. Sub- sequently about a fortnight or three weeks, the horse had influenza. lie knew the horse was in the habit of looking over the hedge in the ordinary way. On the morning of August 16th he examined the horse's legs and his body. On the previous night he had tied him up. There was nothing in the stable that he could have knocked his eye against. On August 16th there was a blue film over the horse's eye. There was nothing now the matter with the horse, except that he was deterior- ated more than £ o.—His Honor He only wants to sell the horse. (Laughter.)—The plaintiff said he believed there was no speck or film on his eye when he first had the horse, but there was a film over it now. There was to his knowledge no such film pre- vious to August 15th.—Re-examined The horse had been there about five months, and the defendant might have had an opportunity of seeing it. -Wm. Irwin Roberts, veterinary surgeon, Liverpool, said he practised in Oswestry in August last, and on a Wednesday in August he was asked by plaintiff to examine a horse. He did so, and found it suffering from inflammation of the eye. The plaintiff asked how it was done, and he replied it must have been caused by a blow. He attended the horse for two months. The blow had injured the horse, and he should decidedly not pass it as sound. Some time afterwards he had a conversation with the defendant about the matter, and he said he was very sorry, but hoped the horse was not damaged. Witness replied that it was damaged, and defendant replied he was frightened and he had struck at the horse thinking it was a man. He thought £ 5 a very moderate estimate of the depreciation in the value of the horse.—J. Trevor Jones, veterinary surgeon, Oswestry, said he knew the plaintiff, who called him to see his horse. It was suffering from an injury to the eye, caused by a blow. That injury must have been due to some ex- ternal violence. The mark of it was still visi le, and had deteriorated the horse £5, He could not pass the horse as sound. Since the accident he had had some conversation with the defendant, who said he was very sorry he had struck the horse, but he had not done it intentionally. He said he was very fond of animals. Defendant told him he struck the blow in self-defence. He said something crushed in the hedge, and he up with his hand and gave him a clowt' in the head." The defendant said he was in the habit of aoins to his father's at Morda frequently. He remembered returning from Morda one night in August. He was rehearsing to himself a piece he was to perform in some dramatic performances. He was in the middle of his piece—(laughter)—when he heard something come crashing over the edge, and he struck upwards with his stick. He went on to the Bell, and there he mentioned what had occurred.—Cross-examined He said he was frightened, and he might have said "I gave them a hot one." He was touched on the head, and he did not wait to see what it was. He thought perhaps there might be someone coming over. When he got to the Bell he called for some brandy, and said he had had a fright, as something had crashed over the hedge, and he had "given him one." After giving the blow, he did not stop to see what it was. He did not go on with the rehearsal. (Laughter.) He heard a snort, but he did not know if it was caused by a horse or a pig. He had always thought the field be- longed to Mr Bayley, but he had not noticed a horse in it.—Daniel Knibbs, assistant to Messrs R. and R. Hughes and Co., said he was in the Bell Inn one night in August last, and remembered defendant coming in. He was in a very excited state. Witness asked what was the matter, and defendant answered he had been very much frightened up the road by something which had reached over the hedge. He said he struck out with his stick, but he did not know if he had struck it.—Cross-examined: He did not I' know if the defendant was easily frightened.—Wil- liam Milner said he was in the Bell one night in I August when the defendant came in. He seemed frightened, and said something "came against the hedge, and he struck it with his stick." He did not say what it was.—After his Honor had summed up. the Jury returned a verdict for plaintiff fort,3 9s, and his Honor ordered costs upon that amount. RUTHIN. MARCH FAIR.—This fair was held on Tuesday and Wednesday, but no cattle, sheep, or pigs were exposed for sale except a few fat animals destined for immediate slaughter. Horses, however, sold as usual, and the array of shows and other things connected with a pleasure fair- were about the same as usual. In consequence of Wednesdav being the great pleasure fair of the year, the hi-monthly County Court originally fixed for that day was postponed to the following day.
THE LIBERATION SOCIETY AND THE PARLIAMENTARY OATH.—The Executive Committee of the Liberation Society, at a meeting on Monday, adopted the fol- 1 wing resolution :—"That the compulsory imposition of an oath upon members of the Legislature, by operating as a religious test, violates the principle that the possession and exercise of civil rights should not be dependent upon religious beliefs. The Committee, therefore, is of opinion that the Bill introduced by the Government to amend the law relating to Parlia- mentary oaths, by allowing members of either House of Parliament, if they think fit, to make a solemn affirmation in lieu of the existing oath of allegiance, ii one which the friends of religious equality are bound to support." BLASPHEMOUS LIBELS.-Since the prosecution of the Freethinker and its promoters, public attention has been more pointedly turned to the consideration of blasphemy and its legal relation to the State. The subject is one of growing importance and to its dis- cussion Mr Moncure D. Conway, M.A., who, if we mistake not, is the lecturer at South Place Chapel, Finsbury, London, has contributed a paper bearing the above title. Mr Conway's views are ultra-radical, and of a pronounced freethinking turn, touching its religious aspect. Notwithstanding its wanderings from a strictly orthodox path. the position taken by him is one which will eventually commend itself to all, viz., the total abolition of the law, which is full of the persecuting spirit of a byegone age. The price is only one penny, and the publisher is E. W. Allen, Ave Maria Lane, London. Another Cure of Bad Throat, Cough, &c. (titis week), by DR.

INTERNATIONAL MATCH. WALES v. IRELAND. This match was played on baturdajr at ceirasu, and resulted in a draw, each side scoring one goal. The Welsh team, who went by steamer from Liver- pool to Belfast, had a tempestuous passage, which caused several to suffer from that most unpleasant, malady-mahle iiier, which in a great measure inter- fered with them showing their usual form. After the teams had been photographed they appeared upon the field, and were greeted with applause by the crowd of spectators already assembled at the ropes. The Irish captain (Hastings) having won the toss, elected to I play with the wind in his favour, and Wales kicked off. In a few seconds the ball was brought into the re° gion of Ireland's goal, and the backs were obliged to give a "corner" to avert danger. Nothing re- sulted from this. and from the kick out M'Wha and Davison had a smart run down the right side. and centred to Morrow, who kicked wide. Adams got a "free "off, which the Welsh centres dribbled nearly up to the front of Ireland's goal; but the pressure was relieved by Watson, who played throughout the day a hard, defensive game, in which he was well assisted bv Rattray. The latter especially used head play with great advantage to his side. For fuliy play with the play was of a gi ve-and-take de- scription between the backs of both sides, and in this was exhibited the first-class kicking of Powell, the Welsh captain. Wales secured another corner, but! made nothing of it. Molyneaux relieved, but the ball was quickly returned by E. Jones, who centred beautifully. The Welsh centre missed, and Dill, I getting possession, made a brisk run, in which the rest of the Irish forwards failed to back him up, and J. Jones checked him, and transferred the ball to the Welsh left wing, where Vaughan was in waiting He, with E. Jones, now exhibited some neat passing and dribbling, and battled Ireland's backs, kicking at last into Rankine's hands. The ball was well stopped, and thrown to Spider, but immediately Price, of Wrexham, tackled him, and, kicking wide of the I posts, gave Ireland a goal kick. The kick-out gave M'Wha and Davison, who during the first half had almost all the hard forward play, an opportunity of combining, and a pretty dodgy run ended in a smart I shot by the latter, which Adams caught in the nick of time, and saved his charge. Immediately after I this half-time was called by the referee, and no points had as yet been scored. The ball had been frequently in touch, but the throws-out did not appear to be fully taken advantage of by either team, no doubt owing to the new method of bringing the ball into play. On resuming, Ireland kicked off, and the first result of the change of ends was seen to be a transfer of the hard work from Ireland's luft and Wales' right. Here Dill was in grand form, and made frequent runs, being well backed up by Spiller, but the half-back (J. Jones, Berwyn Rangers) proved too many for them frequently. From a throw out the Welsh right wing got possession, and after dribbling past Hastings centered to Davies he in turn passed to Vaughan, who made a screw kick to place the ball in front of Ireland's goal. Here Watson tried to relieve, but owing to the force of the wind received the ball awkwardly, and kicked a goal for Wales amidst laughter. Ireland now kicked off. and played rather slowly at first, damped by this loss, but soon Dill and Spiller, being well fed by Hastings, made things hot. for Powell and Hughes, the Welsh backs, and Spiller shot at coal from such a distance that the custodian easily stopped. Wales replied by a run on the left! wing, when Vaughan and Eyton-Jones showed some wonderful dodging, but their final shot only produced a corner. Itattray saved by heading the ball, and Morrow now began to show up among Ireland's for- wards. In the fore part of the game he appeared to have lost his customary dash, but at length he awoke to the knowledge that something must be done. From a neat screw by Dill, Hughes (North- wich) got an opportunity of giving his left wing another run. Watson was in time, and giving, the ball to Morrow, a magnificent run was made by him, I in which the Welsh backs were baffled successively, and a goal for Ireland was kicked by Morrow amidst I much cheering. This equalised the score, and thence- forward the game was very fa?t, both teams being determined to win. Just before call of time a com- I bined run was made by the Irish forwards, and when I in front of goal the final kick was entrusted to Potts, whose shot went scarcely a foot wide of the posts. Run after run was made by the respective left wings. I but no further score was made. I A pleasant game thus ended in a draw, each side having got one koal. Teams :— ) IRELA-ND.-Goal, J.

EXTRAORDINARY OUTRAGE IN MONTGOMERYSHIRE. —An occurrence very unusual for Wales has taken place near Cecuuiaes, a village in Montgomeryshire: A farm having been vacant for more than twelve months, got into a neglected condition, the fences being broken down, and the sheep and cattle I belonging to neighbouring farmers trespassed freely, on the land. A few days ago the agent of the estate, II accompanied by several assistants, suddenly made hill appearance on the farm and found 140 sheep grazing there. They proceeded to pound them, when a number of the neighbours assembled, and succeeded in rescuing the sheep from the agent's custody. Two i nights afterwards the farm buildings were discovered to be on fire, and when the police and others arrived I they found that some of the doors of the dwelling- house, all the doors of the out-buildings, and several held gates had been piled up in the stable, above which was a loft of dry deals, and the whole set on fire. Before the flames could be subdued they had consumed the stable, barn, and outbuildings. The police are actively engaged in investiratintr tho -g-n' matter. ° — I NORTH WALES NARROW GAUGE RAILWAYS COM- NY'—'P'e 21st half-yearly meeting of the North IVales Narrow Guage Railways Company (the Moel I Tryvan) was held on Tuesday, at the Queen"* Hotel, ¡ Manchester; the chairman (Mr J. C. Russell) pre- siding. The other shareholders present were Mr A Fitzgibbon, Stanmore, Middlesex and Mr J. Stott. I The report stated that there was a decrease in the earnings from all sources of £015, and an increase in working expenses of RGI, making a net decrease in the net revenue for the half-year of 1:108. This was due to a falling off in slate traffic and passenger traffic, which was not compensated for by the increase in merchandise and coal traffic. Thre. had been an increase in first and second class passengers, and a decrease in the third class.— The Chairman, in movin the adoption of the report, explained that the decrease I in the number of third class passengers was attribut- able to the falling off in the contract tickets taken by quarrymen, owing to the closing of one of the quarrieli in the district. The slate traffic had been extrerneiv bad, and the total result was that the receipts were 1:81 less than they were in the corresponding half of last year, but compared with 1830 they showed an in- crease of £ 11.— Mr Fitzgibbon seconded the motion.- Mr Stott urged that an effort should be made to ex- tend the line to Beddgelert, and commented upon the small amount of receipts ( £ 1500 for the half-ye ir) though the capital subscribed in the undertakiii" was I £ 125,000.—The Chairman concurred in the suggestion to extend the line, and said that he should unite with the other shareholder in contributing the additional capital retluired.-The motion was passed, and the meeting terminated with a vote of thanks to the ¡ Chairman.

THE WESTMINSTER EXPLOSION. I A CLrE TO THE PERPETRATORS OF THE OUTRAGE. The police authorities have, it is stated, been successful in obtaining some clue to the peruetrators of last Thursday night's outrage at the Local Govern- ment Board offices in Charles-street. OnWednesday morning a clue was obtained to which the Government j) attach much importance. It appears that a yotint4 woman, engaged as forewoman in a papar manu- factory, was on Thursdav evening proceeding along Charles-street when she observed a man stooping down near the stone balustrade outside the Local; Government Board offices as if throwing something away. She noticed him particularly, owingto his eccentric position, and is able to describe his looks fully. The police are now in possession of a detailed description of his appearance, and working upon this are still hopeful of arresting the miscreant. The young woman states that if confronted with the mu.n she saw in Charles-street she would certainly recognise him again. I,
LADY FLORENCE DIXIE. The Press Association states that no clue to the assailants of Lady Florence has been discovered. Much evidence has been taken and sifted, but k has tended to increase rather than remove the mystery, t Superintendent Hayes denies Lady Dixie's statement I that the police did not at once watch the local railway stations, and says that officers were immediately told i off for that purpose. Mr Pennicott, proprietor of ( Surly Hall Hotel, on Wednesday, visited the; scene of the outrage with Sir Beaumont and! I Lady Dixie, and is of opinion that he could not I have witnessed the attack from the place where he stood, nor could he, owing to the direction of the wind, have heard anything. Some corroboration of Lady Dixie's suory is supplied by the butler to Colonel Halford, of Down-place, who was toming from Windsor, on Saturday afternoon, and was surprised by the sudden appearance of two persons just by the plantation. He was struck by their size for women, He noticed that one was wearing a loose cloak. In a furthei interview with Ladv Dixie, her ladyship stated that she was exceedingly indignant at the way j in which a portion of the press has cast doubt upon her statement, but what disgusted her most was that the members of the House of Commons should have I acted as they did, and the Government not to have reproved them. It was shameful that Mr Gladstone should state that he was unable to give any further information.
DEATH OF TdE MASTER OF THE ROLLS. Sir George Jessel, Master of the Rolls, died at his residence in London at six o'clock on Wednesday morning. Premonitory symptoms appeared! some time since, but the attacks, though necessitating medical advice, had not been sufficiently acute to necessitate abstention from official duties until Mon- day. On that day the symptoms were unusually violent, and recurred with augmented force several times during the forty-eight hours that elapsed before his death. Sir George, however, did not think it advisable to keep his bed. and on Wednesday he felt so much better that he rose early and was dressing when the fatal attack seized him. Lady Jessel was in the room at the time, and ran to his assistance, sending for medical aid, but his lordship never spoke: again. The cause of death was ant/inu pectwis. The deceased judge, according to U lln of the Times," was of Jewish extraction, being the youngest son of the late Mr Zachariah Nathaniel Jessel, a merchant of Putney, by Mary, daughter of the late Mr Henry Harris. He was born in London in the year 1824, and educated at University College, London, where he graduated B.A. in 1843, as a Uni- versity Scholar in mathematics, and proceeded M. A. in the following year, obtaining a gold medal in mathematics. He was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in May, 1847, and was made a Queen's Counsel and a Bencuer of his Inn in 18G5. He was a Senator of the University of London, and at the general elec- tion of 1868 he was returned in the Liberal interest as one of the representati ves of the borough of Dover. He was appointed Solicitor-General in Mr Gladstone's administration in November, 1871, and received, the honor of knighthood February 21, 1872. In August, 187% he was, on the recommendation of Mr (Had- stone, appointed Master of the Rolls, in succession to Lord Romilly. On this occasion he was sworn of the Privy Council. Sir George Jessel was the first Jew who ever occupied a seat on the judicial bench in this country. He married, in lX"ii>, a daughter of Mr Joseph Moses, merchant, of Leadenhall-street, City.
-1 ON WEDNESDAY afternoon the Rev. C. Spurgeon, son of the pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle preached at the Welsh Baptist Chapel; Bangor. In the evening the rev. gentleman delivered a lecture at the Tabernacle Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. The proceeds were in aid of a branch Welsh Methodist chapel at Hirael. In the absence of Mr Rathbone, M.P., who had -4tibscribed towards the funds, Mr J. R. Davies (Treborth) presided. CONWAY CUUNn: COURT. -On Wednesday, before Mr Horatio Lloyd Owen Jones, farmer. Bryngowsi, sned G. E. Lowe, Bryn Lupus, for the value of a sheep dog killed by the defendant. The killing was admitted, it being alleged that the animal, which was valued at £10, was chasing a hare. Mr Chamberlain, for the defendant, contended that his client was justified in shooting the dog, which was in full chase of a hare. It was also set up that the dog was not worth more than three guineas. His Honor held that the defendant was not justified in shooting the dog, and gave judgment for the plaintiff for £ 4.—Mr Louis applied on behalf of W. Jackson, lessee of the Llan- dudno Market, for the payment out of court of certain monies recovered under a judgment in a case in which the Market-hall Company were the plaintiffs. Mr W. Davies opposed on behalf of certain directors, and the Judge ordered that each should receive notice that the case would come on at the next court. THE NEW DOMINION JISE STEAMER "OREGON."— i Ún iuesday there was added another magnificent !¡ vessel! to the Dominion Line, !M well as one to the unequalled fleet of passenger steamers which has 'I given Liverpool her proud position of pre-eminence. The steamer is the "Oregon," and on arrival she took I her berth in the Alexandra Doek, where she will load her cargo, and sail on Saturday next for Halifax and Portland. The Ore,,otx was constructed on the Clyde by Messrs C. Connell and Co., and is 3,712 tons | gross register. Her engines are of the compound type, and are capable of working up to 2,500 horse- 'F?\ ??"Sth of the Oregon is 361 feet, breadth 'iO3 feet, and depth of hold 32 6 feet. She is built in seven water-tight compartments, and is in several respects considerably in excess of the reciuire- ments of the highest class at Lloyd's 100 Al. She will be able ti) cqrry 100 cabin, :-10 intermediate, and vis steerage passengers. The managers, Messrs Hmn, Matn, and MontKomery, are evidently con- vinced that comfort and convenience are the surest means of secnring a share of the passenger trade. The elaborateness of the accommodation in the Oregon is sufficient testimony of this. The saloon runs the whole breadth of the vessel, and is capable of accommodating at one sitting about 100 persons at four parallel tables. The light and ventilation are abundant to attain the latter feature there is a sort of dome cut in the centre of the ceilinc. By a happy arrangement this is made to form a gallery. Around this are rails from which passengers can con- verse from the saloon with those on the deck above. This dome also opens on to the library and mu.ic.room, and the meldy of one S BrinsmeaWs upright iron grand pianos is thus enabled to fifr ^hp music-room and saloon simultaneously" Ihe saloon is pannelled with maple throTu??heS?' except where mabsive mirrors intervene S a relief.

IN THE MATTER OF A FLINTSHIRE SoMviroit.—l!n the Queen's Bench Division, on Tuesday, the case "f re W. Davis came before Justices Williams and Cave, on a rule nisi calling upon the defendant to answer certain affidavits, or show cause why he should not be struck of the rolls. It appeared that the defendant was a solicitor, now residing at Rhyl, but w ho, before he was appointed coroner of Flint, resided at Holy- well. The plaijitiff, infrij Hares, wife of Mr Hares, of Bell Inn, Weaverham, Cheshire, in an affidavit, stated that in 18f.iü she was the wife of Montagu .Stevens, and in December of that year her husband died while transacting business in Calcutta. Shortly before his death, Montagu Stevens assigned to the piesent Mrs Hares a policy of insurance on his life for the sum of • £ 300: In October, 1867. Mrs Hares consulted Mr Davis with reference to obtaining the amount of the policy and taking steps for its investment. The affidavit further alleged that certain sums had been received on account, but that there was still a still, due to Mrs Hares. A Mr Fletcher, present solicitor for Mrs Hares, also made an affidavit detailing the cor> respondence he had had in the present proceeding*. On behalf of the defendant an affidavit had been tiled which set forth that the sum of £ 300 had been received, but that at the time of its receipt there was an ar- rangement that the defendant should keep half of the sum in his hands, to satisfy the claim which mightli made by the father of the deceased man Stevens, a he had died intestate. Mr Davies also stated that he was willing now, and always had been willing, to p:y into court the sum which remained in his hands, and leave it, for the court to deal with as they might think fit. As an explanation of the delay in certain answers to letters, he further stated that, having been appointed coroner for Flint, his business was mostly transacted in his absence, because of his increased duties.—After hearing counsel on both sides, Mr Justice Willianis said he was of opinion that the case was not one which should have been brought before the court, and that the rule should be discharged with costs.—Mr Justice Cave, concurred- Rule discharged accordingly.
