LOCAL COUBT ARRANGE MEETS. (To the Editor of the JKOMTHEEN ABGUS.) SIR--I wish through your columns to call attention to the peculiar absurdity and irjuBtice of the arrangements at the Clare Local Court. On Tuesday, July 6th, I attended the said Court all day, as party in a case, which was called on about dark. As there was then no full Court it could not be beard; consequently plaintiff, defendant, and four witnesses, to say nothing of the counsel on each Bide, had to retire tdl the next sitting of the Court, which took place yesterday. In the meantime, it had been decided to try the case by jury, and all parties concerned attended the Court punc tually at 10 o'clock, naturally supposing the case would be called on first, when to their astonishment they were informed it would come off last on the list, the whole morning having been occupied by one or two trumpery police cases, which ought to have been settled in half an hour, and the afternoon having been taken up by one or two fre...
