MACHYNLLETH. PETTY SESSIONS, Feb. 2nd.-Before C. F. Thruston, Esq., and J. 0. W. Bonsall, Esq. NON-PAYMENT OF RATES. Thomas Jenkins was summoned by Wm. Hill, Esgeirgeiliog, the overseer for the parish of Llanwrin, for non-payment of a rate amounting to X6 19s. 6d.âAn order was made, and the amount was paid before the Court rose. BEGINNING THE NEW YEAR WELL. John Stephens was summoned for assaulting Margaret Vaughan.âThe Complainant said that she, her husband, and Stephens had been drinking at the Raven Bach. She left the house to buy some things in for Sunday, her husband and the defendant being very comfortable together. She was told that Stephens and her husband were going to fight; and returning to the Raven, she found a lot of persons taking her husband away. She asked Stephens why he was going to fight with her husband and he pitched into her, gave her a black eye, and did his best to choke her. He was about to continue his violence, but was deterred by the crowd, who cried shame upon him for striking a woman. Both parties are in the rag and bone trade, and com- plainant alleged that the row had its origin in the fact that several of the defendant's customers had transferred their patronage to the complainant. The complainant had no wit- nesses in court, but could call the whole town if necessarv.â The Defendant said that the woman was very drunk, and blackguardious," and came into the house challenging anyone to fight her.-Mr Edwards, the landlord of the house, and Lloyd Roberts, his son-in-law, were called as witnesses, and denied that the defendant had left the house.âThis case was dismissed. Margaret Vaughan was next summoned for assaulting Jane Jones, the sister-in-law of the defendant in the last case. After the row in the Raven, complainant encountered the defendant, who was challenging complainant's mother and the whole family to have a 1* set-to." Complainant declined to have anything to do with tbe defendant, who was far gone in drink, and then de- fendant strdck her, and subsequently transferred her attention to an Irishwoman, who came up to see fair play.-Harriet Owen was called to substantiate complainant's story.âDefendant denied; he charge in toto, stating that the complainant had challenged her. She asked her how she, a young woman, could have the face to challenge a mother of thirteen children. Com- plainant then tried to strike her, but complainant's sweetheart, who was standing by, seized her arm and took her away.âA fine of 5s., and costs, was inflicted. The money was paid.
