NEWPORT POLICE COURT.âMonday, Feb. 26. [Before the Mayor, and Hughes, Esq.] Charge of Felony.âFrancis Peter Gale stood charged with having, on Sunday evening, the 18th inst., broken open a box of Mr. David William Jones, and having taken theiefrom 291, in sovereigns. Mr. David William Jones stated that he and prisoner Gale, lived in the same house at 109, CommereiiJ-street; the font room was occupied by himself, n which he carried on the trade of a bookseller, and Mr. Gale kept a printing-press in another part of the house; there were two entrances into the house, one through the shop, the key of which was kept by himself, and the other the house-door, for which there were two keys, one kept by Gale, and the other by himself. Mrs. Gale attended to his bed-room, &c., for whichhe paid her. OH Sunday evening, the ISth inst., he went to chapel about half-past five o'clock, and left Mr. and Mrs. Gale in the house. When he returned from chapel, he found the door ajar, with the bolt out. Having forced it back, he went in, and procured a book from the shop to read, but being afraid to stop in the house alone, he went out again and returned in about an hour and a half, and saw at the door 1\lrs. Gale, with several other persons. She asked him What have you lost, Mr. Jones;" he made no reply, but went into the house directly, and on proceeding up-stairs saw that 'his box was broken open, and on examining it found that a purse containing 291. was stolen.Ho went out and met Mr. English, the Superintendent of Police, and told him of the circumstances, who lost no time in making every possible search to find the guilty party, but did not succeed that evening. Sergeant Huxtable stated that he visited the prefiSis^s on the Monday morning following, and exam- ined the lock of the door, and the windows, &c., and was sure the house had not been broken into, nor the lock picked as otherwise the lock would not work as it did; he requested Mr. Joilefc to watch everything going on in the house, and to inform him of what transpired, as he expected Gale would soon be leaving the town. On Thursday evening- he received information that Gale was going to Bristol. The next morning he got rp about five o'clock, and went down towards Gale's house, and listened foril few minutes at the door heard some one open the back door and go out and immediately return ha (Sergeant Huxtable) moved a few steps from the door, and di- rectly after the prisoner Gale came out, and took in the direction of Pill- gwcnlly; he cailed to him, and said I understood he was going to Bristol; prisoner said he was, but was going to call on his father first, and go on board at Pill; he then told him what he was suspected of. Prisoner said that he heard of it. He (Sergeant Huxtable) then took him towards the Station house, but he was very unwilling to go without seeing his wife first; he sought to put. his hand in his pocket, but on his telling him that he must not do 80, he complained his hand was cold and shoved it in he then put his hand into his pocket, and found a roll of paper containing twenty-eight sove- reigns a half-sovereign. About two o'clock he and Superintendent English went to the prisoner's house, and told his wife that Gale was in custody, and that the money had been found about him. She replied that she knew better than that, he had only 5s. or 5s. 6d. about him, and a part of that was borrowecl. The prisoner said that he found the money on the chair iii-the room (Mr. Jones' bed-room) ou Sunday evening, and -put it in his pocket, but did not say anything about it, lest they should think he had taken them. Seycral other particulars were adduced, which only went to prove that the suspicion entertained was but too true. P. C. Harlow said he was on the premises on Sunday evening^ the 18th inst., and had examined the doors and windows, and was satistied that the house was not broken into-sit, the nux "hich ht*a \n::ct:;u \jiu\cn i, >.t,.

On Friday evening the prisoner's brother came to the Station-house, requesting to see his brother, by an o der from the Superin- tendent. He was allowed, in my presence. His brother enquired if the ru- mour about the town of his having confessed all about the money to Mr. English was true, *he hesitated a little, and said Yes. The brother replied, 11 What a fo,)l you arc, I had more faith in you; nobody could swear thev were Jones's !lwney." The prisoner said it was no good to tell any more lies"about them. lie was committed for trial' for felony at the next Quarter Sessions at Usk.
