CARDIGANSHIRE SPRING ASSIZES. The commission for the Spring. Assizes for this county was opened at the Shire-hall, Cardigan, on Monday evening, before the Right Hon. Sir Edward Fry, Knight, one of her Majesty's Lord Justices of A ppeal, who arrived in town from Haverfordwest, via Fishguard, shortly after four. On Tuesday morning at 10.30 his lordship took his seat in court. The judge briefly addressed the grand jury, a fair number of whom were present. There was only one prisoner for trial, and the grand jury having at length returned with a true bill, the case was proceeded with. CHARGE OF UNLAWFULLY WOUNDING AT LAMPETER. David Jones, of Pwllgravel, near Llanybyther, who surrendered to his bail, was indicted for un- lawfully and feloniously wounding one David Davies, a turner, of Nantfach, Alltblaca, Llan- wenog, on the 1st of January last. The circum- stances of the case were to the following effect. The prosecutor left his home on the evening of the 1st inst, for the purpose of going to Llanybyther, returning in a very friendly manner in company with the prisoner about ten o'clock. As the parties approached the house of the former I a dispute arose as to a certain sum of 2s 6d which prisoner alleged the prosecuter owed him. The dispute led to a scuffle, both being thrown to the ground, and during the melee prisoner, it was alleged, stabbed his companion in the right thigh with a knife or other sharp instrument. Blood flowed profusely from the wound, and prosecutor was subsequently attended by Dr. Davies, of Llanybyther, who, however, now swore that the cut in the trousers worn by prosecutor at the time of the occurrence, and the wound on the thigh, could not have been inflicted by the knife found on the prisoner when apprehended. Mr Dillwyn, instructed by Mr W. H. James, ably defended the prisoner. The jury were absent for nearly an hour, and on their return to court found the pri- soner not guilty, and he was acquitted. Before leaving the box a second charge of felony â unlawfully and maliciously injuring prosecutor on the right finger and thigh, putting him in bodily fear, and attempting to rob him was heard. The same jury were sworn, but as the prosecu tion offered no evidence against the prisoner the jury were directed to bring in a verdict of Not guilty." His Lordship observed that this form- ally was necessary, as the grand jury brought in a true bill on both charges. On the second indictment prisoner was entitled to a verdict. Prisoner was therefore released. This coacluded the business of the assizes.
