NANTWICH. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The fortnightly meeting was held on Saturday, the Rev. Canon Blackburne presiding. The Board considered the tenders for supplying the work- house with provisions, &c., for the ensuing half year, and accepted the lowest tender in every case. The successful contractors were:- Porter, Mr. T. Pickmere; drapery, executors of the late Mr. Joseph Willett; tailoring, Messrs. Stretch & Harlock; bread, Indian meal, and bran, Messrs. W. & T. Chesters; butter, Mr. A. Furnival; milk, (new) and buttermilk, Mrs. Green; coal, Messrs. H. Chesworth & Son; coffins, Mr. Chas. Hampson; butcher's meat, Mr. S. Turner, Blakenwell; boots and shoes, Nantwich Boot & Shoe Co. An interesting point was the price of bread which had risen to 41d. for the 41b. loaf. Last half year the contract was let at 3gd. for the quartern loaf.—The Local Government Board wrote stating that they had awarded Mr. Griffiths, relieving officer, &c., for the Wrenbury district, an annual sum of j61 lls. 9d. or a lump sum of X20 11s. 3d. for compensation owing to the transfer of certain townships for registration purposes to the Bunbury district. DESPERATE ENCOUNTER.—At Nantwich, on Saturday morning, Thomas Carney was re- manded upon a charge of unlawful wounding. The prisoner owed a small loan to another Irishman named Dominick Heron, and the latter going to a potato field where Carney was employed demanded payment. Carney there- upon savagely attacked Heron with a potato fork, inflicting severe wounds on the head and face. Carney escaped across the fields, but was pursued and captured.—Prisoner was brought up on remand on Monday, when evidence was given to the effect that the prosecutor lent the prisoner half-a-sovereign, and on Friday last he asked him for the repayment of the loan. The prisoner, according to the prosecutor, replied by dealing him a heavy blow with a four-pronged fork, inflicting a wound four inches long, pene- trating to the bone. Prisoner made two subse- quent attacks upon the prosecutor, but after a struggle the latter secured possession of the fork. The prisoner then hurled stones at the prosecutor, who retaliated by running him with the yelve. Later in the day he laid an informa- tion against Heron, whom he accused of steal- ing his yelve. While the police were engaged in making inquiries, the prosecutor obtained a warrant for unlawful wounding against the prisoner, who was then arrested. Thedefence was that the prosecutor attacked the prisoner, who used the fork in self-defence. The prisoner was committed for trial.
