MONMOUTH. ACCIDENT.—As a man named Hall, in the em- ploy of Mr W. G. Barter, of Monmouth, was driving on Saturday morning, towards Monmouth, in a dog-cart, near Manson's Cross, a little named Lloyd was knocked down whilst crossing the road. The trap went over the child, and the horse's hoofs struck her on the forehead. She was picked up insensible. Medical aid was called, and the child lies in a precarious state. The driver's conduct was most strange, for he continued his journey. It is believed that he will be prosecuted before the magistrates. MONMOUTH CoUNTY COURT. — On Monday, before his Honour Judge Herbert, a large num- ber of cases was heard, the following being among them :— A COUNTY JUSTICE.—John Farmer Powell, tailor, Usk, v. Richd. Eastham, gentleman, J.P. for the county, residing at Coed Cefki, near Rag- lan. This was a judgment summons in which the defendant had been ordered to pay £4 17s in a week, but he bad not paid anything.—His Honour now said he was bound to presume that a gentle- man who was a county magistrate could pay £4 17s, and committed him for ten days, the warrant to be suspended for a fortnight.—Defen- dant did not appear. DISPUTED AGENCY.—Thos. Green, farmer, Penallt, v. Thos. Morgan, jun., Lodge Farm, Raglan.—Mr W. C. A. Williams appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Watkins, of Pontypool, for the defendant.—This was a case in which the plain- tiff sought to recover the sum of JB27 from the defendant, for six tons of clover, alleged to have been sold and delivered to defendant's agent, one Henry Somers.—It appeared that the man Somers had gone to Penallt, and purchased a quantity of fodder, which he cut out of the ricks, and which Mr Morgan paid for. While he was there he produced a post-card, with the defendant's name printed on the face of it, which he gave the plain- tiff, who ultimately, and through his wife, sold the hay to Somers for £4 10s per ton in February. In March Somers went to plaintiff's farm, and cut up the hay, and trussed it, and the plaintiff's lion hauled it, six tons in all, to Troy Station, where plaintiff and his son understood it was to be consigned to the defendant.—For the defen- dant a lot of papers were put in, showing that all transactions had ceased between defendant and Somers before the transaction of Green's and it was also deposed that defendant only bouebt hay of Somers in the same manner as he purchased from anyone else.—Somers was put in the box, and swore he bought the hay for himself, and not for the defendant; that he. consigned it to Cossens, a hay dealer, of Liverpool, who had not paid him for it owing to a dispute as to yeight.— His Honour deferred judgment,
