AMUSEMENTS, SPORTS, &c. " And because right is right, to follow right Were wisdom in the scorn of consequence." TsaNNYusoN.

Borough Council v. - Porvies. Rates rom the year 1857|' to 1867. The summonses were for rates due on a vacant piece of land fronting Fitzroy-street, near the Terminus Hotel, which as was proved by the council had been separately assessed from a number of houses lying. adjacent and abutting thereon. The main feature of the defence was that no entrance could be obtained from the houses except through this piece of land, which rendered the land a portion of the property on which the assessment had been paid. The bench awarded the amount, in all £18 10s. 7d., with £1 6s. costs.
