RADNORSHIRE ASSIZES. At the Radnorshire assizes, held at Prestejgn, on Thursday week,before Mr Justice Manisty, Henry Warner and Edward Glyn were tried for a burglary committed last May on the premises of an old man named John Meredith, and were acquitted. Godfrey Morgan pleaded guilty to the charge of obtain- ing five shillings from Sir Herbert Edmund Frankland Lewis, Bart., by false pretences. There was a long list of previous convictions against him, and he was sentenced to five years' penal servitude. Mr Marchant Williams, barriater-at-law, appeared for the prosecution in both cases. This concluded the business of the assize, the. only civil cause entered having been settled. Justice Manisty, in delivering his charge, said that this was the fifth assize town he bad visited in South Wales on this circuit, and it Was 20 days since he left home, while all the business might, he thought, have been done in about four or five days. He did not know whether anybody could suggest a means to prevent such a great waste of time, but it Spemed to him a serious matter to lose 14 days out of 20. And this occurred twice a year. It was a great waste of judicial power, but at the same time, if it was thought desirable that the assizes should be held twice a year in each county, it was not for him to say that it should be altered. It was exceedingly pleasant to find so little crime of a serious character in the principality. He bad only heard two cases of a serious kind, and of civil business there was almost none. He heard a similar account that morning from his brother Field, who was going the North Wales circuit. That state of things went on time after time, and it was no doubt highly creditable to the principality.
