ABERAVON. ANOTHER ELECTION.âWe are again in the midst of another contest for a seat in the Town Council. The seat now contested is the one vacated by Mr. John David at the meeting on the 9th inst., and curiously enough Mr. David is himself in the field seeking re-election. The other candidate is Mr. Thomas E. Jones, who was one of the alleged un- successful candidates at the recent election. Mr. David we understand relies on his own inherent strength, baoked by the Copper Lads," to secure his return to the Town Council. We believe the contest will be the most severe ever fought in this borough, as Mr. Jones is supported by all the trades- men and respectable burgesses in the town, and we cannot believe that Mr. David will secure the seat this time even by the skin of his teeth." PETTY SESSIONS, THURSDAY, before the MA YOB (Daniel Smith, Esq.), and EDWARD JONES and DAVID JENKINS, Esqrs. AFFILIATION.â William Davies was summoned to show cause why he should not contribute towards the maintenance of the illegitimate child of Mary Ann James, of Blackwelly. The complainant was represented by Mr. David Blellock, of Cardiff/and the defendant by Mr. Plews, of Merthyr. The case occupied the court for several hours, there being no less than nine witnesses examined, and at the con- clusion of the evidence the Bench dismissed the summons for want of corroborative evidence. THE NEW MAYORâMr. Smith sat on Thursday as chief magistrate, and we have every reason to believe that he will prove a valuable addition to the Bench. We may venture to echo the words of a contemporary, that he will discharge the duties of the office without that pomp and self-conceit which are so offensive.
