NEWPORT. LEGAL.-r. Frederick Vaughan, who served his clerk- ship to Mr. Robert James Cathcart of Newport, has been awarded a certificate of merit, after examination by the Council of the Incorporated Law Society. A FILTHY HOUSE.âMr. H. P. Bolt made an applica- tion to the Borough Bench yesterday for an order against William Venn, baker and tripe seller, who had occupied a house under him, to cleanse and disinfect his premises. The Bench ordered defendant to give up the house at once, in ordjjr that it may be disinfected. MISCELLANEOUS CHARGES.James Speary and James James, for being drunk and disorderly, were each fined 10s. 6d., or 14 days. Richard Tasker was remanded on a charge of stealing rope from the barque Ottawa, now in the dock. Charles Hawkes was charged under a warrant with assaulting his wife and although the wife did not now desire to press the charge, the Bench sent the pri- soner to Usk for two months' hard labour. THREATENING AN ALDERMAN.âWilliam Venn was summoned yesterday, for threatening and using violent lan- guage towards Alderman Townsend, at his warehouse, Merchant-street, on Thursday morning. The Alderman stated that defendant had got into a house at Maindee in which he complainant was interested, and had taken ad- vantage of a woman in order to do so. By means of an ingeniously drawn up document he had endeavoured to get into the house as a yearly tenant, and had consented to pay the rent to him in redemption, of the mort- gage which he (Alderman Townsend) had on the house. Defendant came to his office, ridiculed and abused him in a fearful manner, and therefore he asked the Bench to restrain him from such acts. When he ordered defendant out of his office he refused to go, and it was with difficulty that he kept himself from violently ejecting the defendant, who threatened to tear his b brains out. He went on in this way for at least ten minutes on that account he wished the Bench to deal with him. Mr. Woolett I suppose you are afraid of him, Mr. Townsend? Mr. Alderman Townsend: I don't say that, for I was never afraid of any man in my life but I don't wish to be subjected to such an annoyance again.âMr. Phillips You wish him bound over to keep the peace.âAlderman Townsend: Certainly; he isn't fit to be at large.âDefendant entered upon a long statement as to the reason why he went to Mr. Townsend's office. He went there to demand from him a stamped agreement which had been drawn up by Mr. Edmunds, the druggist, and of which complainant had robbed him. He had no fight to steal this document and destroy it.âThe Chair- man You had no business to go to Mr. Townsend s office; and we must bind you over to keep the peace, in the sum of £ 20.âDefendant: I'll bring an action against him.
