John McDonald, at Hillhead of Morange, in the parish of Inveraven, was convicted, in a Justice of Peace Court held at Banff on the 5th curt. of having set gins, or snares, in parcels of corn, on the moor adjoining to his house, to decoy and hang game, and sentenced to pay a penalty of L. 100 Scots, in terms of the statute 1594, cap. 210; and failing payment of that sum within eight days, to be imprisoned in the Tolbooth of Banff till payment thereof: an example which, it is expected, will deter others from using such unlawful and murderous engines for the destruction of game in future.
