The tobacco was found by the custom-house officers in a cupboord, but at the back, and apparently concealed by a number of articles placed in front of it. The rummage had been made on the 29th, and a second rummage on the same day led to the discovery of the tobacco. This was after the defendant had denied that be had any more t-o bacco than that produced. Mr Downing called some witnesses to prove that the captain was un- aware that the tobacco was concealed, and the bench, after hearing the evidence of these wit- nesses, dismissed the case, it being apparent that no attempt at smuggling had been made by the defendant. LICENSING OFFENCE.âJames Dunn,landlord of the Bute Docks Hotel, was summonsed for per- mitting drunkenness on his licensed premises on the 11th ult. Mr H. Morgan Rees prosecuted, and Mr Vachell defended, The case arose out of a previous one, heard on the the 19th ult., when a man named Morris charged a man named George with assaulting him, and the evidence to show that the defendant and complainant were drunk, and also that the fight took place near the Bute Dock Hotel, where they had been drinking for hours. It was was also stated that the first blow was struck in the bar ot the hotel. The witnesses were called for the prosecution swore that the parties were half drunk, but knew what they were doing. The case was dismissed. ANOTHER BROTHEL ROBBERY.-Ellen Riley, a young woman of bad character, was charged with stealing L5 from Alex. Young, at 17, Homfray- street, on the 29th ult. Complainant met prisoner at a public-house, and went with her to a house in Homfray-street. Here a row took place, and the police came and turned them all out. Complainant had at that time concealed his money in his stockings. When turned out he had his money all right but he went with the prisoner to another house in the same street, and on the following morning he found that his money had been taken and the purse left. The prisoner was apprehended on the following day by Chief Inspector Price. She denied the robbery, but on looking in her bands ha found there £ 5 in gold, besides some silver, in her purse.

VIOLENT ASSAULT BY A WOMAN.âMargaret Shea (26), a young woman of bad character, was charged with violently assaulting an old man named Daniel Murray, in June last. Inspector Lewis said that the assault was a very serious one. The defendant and another young woman, who lives in Halkett-street, attacked the old man, and beat him severely. The defendant then left the town, and was only apprehended on Thurs- day night. As the complainant was then at work at the Docks, and knew nothing of the arrest of the defendant, the case was remanded till to-morrow. NEWPORT. HOLIDAY DRUNKENNESS.âThe only business dealt with at the borough police-court to-day (Mr H. Phillips presiding) consisted of five cases of drunkenness, in all of which fines of 5s were imposed. One man named William Thomas had been following the waits on New Year's morning, and amused himself by kicking at doors of houses as he went along. P.C. Bristowe, a newly- made officer, confronted defendant, but he told him he did'nt care for a young hand like him. Another case was against Annie Roberts, of res- pectable parentage, who has been in the Females' Home for some time, but who has relapsed again into vicious wrys. A man named Charles Ball was endeavouring, as he alleged, go take her home. Police-constable Carter, one of the oldest officers in the force, doscribad both as making a disgraceful exhibition of them- selves. He had heard a good deal of bad language, but the woman's e«c?eded the worst. At the close of the cases, which occupied only 15 minutes, Mr Phillips remarked that such a short list was very good for Christmas time.âSupt. Sinclair: There are five cases of drunkenness.â The Magistrates' Clerk On Monday the bench sat until nearly three o'clock in the afternoon, a period of four hours.
