[TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERLIN.] Sis,âIn reference to the case of assault tried 'before the sitting magistrates, at Pontypool, on the 24th instant, â and headed in your paper of the 28th, Pebbles or berries." I beg leave to remark, so trifling a statement did not contain the substance or nature of the offence. I make all invariable practice of entering into the commence- ment of every subject or matter coming under my consi- deration, without weighing its importance. For this reason, sir, I felt it my duty to adopt the same policy when questioned by trie sitting magistrates.-on the before- mentioned date. 'If I bad acted otherwise, in my opinion it would be an incomplete method of stating facts, relating in part only, and not as a. whole This mast be sufficient to show neither silliness nor childishness had any part or connection with the caseâthe two voitfciis having previ- ously given me 3.11. assurance of sorrow and amendment, I felt pleased to forgive them, on condition of their pay- ing the costs. After this agreement er settlement, as can be reasonably inferred, my object in having them to ap- pear, was with the view of impressing their minds with a necessary and timely fear, not desiring a conviction. In giving my evidence, I did not, as reported, inquire of Curtis, whether he threw berries or not. I spoke to him in the following manner, after having made mention of the steal> stones Recollect: you told me berries"â words to ? youth so placed, having more of an alarming and intimidating, than :m inquiring tendency. I regret to perceive another error your reporter or correspondent has fallen into, in stating that the entire body of the Court .gave expression to a general and almost indescribable laughter and amusement, heartily indulged in, consequent on my speaking to the boy. Mr. Editor, lean boldly and truthfully give the most "unequivocal denial to such a statement: from eight tc twelve persons only were jocosely inclinedâthe remaining portion, of the assembly, probably 130 persons were orderly. Desiring the favour of insertion, I remain, sir, respectfully, JOHN HUSSEY, Baker.
