James's son was leading the horse. He called out to the boy to take the horse away. Com- plainant afterwards saw a man leading a horse which was drawing a cart into the field of corn. There was no cart way there. A boy by the name of John James who was leading the horse, stopped on being spoken to. The defendant, Anne James came into the field, how- ever, threw the gate of its hinges, and brought the horse and cart into the cornfield. He asked her what she meant, and she challenged him to strike her. She had some dung in the field and she wanted to get at it. She afterwards got up to complainant, took hold of him by the throat and pulled his whiskers. He did nothing to her. Complainant's wife then arrived on the scene and a row ensued, but his wife did not threaten defendant with anything. On being asked what her defence was, defendant, who vvas a muscular woman, put her arm around complainant's neck, pulled him slightly backwards, and showed the Bench what she had done to him on Good Friday. John James, a lad, corroborated the main facts deposed above.âThe case of Jane Richards, complainant's wife, v. Ann James, for an assault was then gone into. Mrs. Richards said she went out, and the first thing she saw was the defendant holding a shovel over her husband's head. She tried to put the gate back into its place with her husband's assistance. Defendant resisted and they fell down with the gate, when defendent who was doing the mischief, called out to the complainant in the last case, Don't kill your wife." Complainant was bruised about the legs, and defendant also took hold of her by the throat.-The Magistrates' Clerk asked who began the row, and defendant replied that it was the gate.âThe third case of Mrs. Richards v. the son of Ann James, was next taken. The lad was thirteen years of age, and appears to have taken the part ef his mother against the complainant when the row occurred.âThe Bench decided to dismiss the case as between the women, but fined the defendant, Ann James, 10s., and costs, far the assault on John Richards. Constabul(t?-y. -James Evans (No. 2) was sworn in as constable.
