PENARTH POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before Mr J. S. Corbett (in the chair), and Mr Valentine Trayes. ARREARS OF RATES.—Christopher Howe, rate col- lector, Barry Dock Town, summoned William Day, Barry Dock Town, for 13s 4d, arrears of general dis- trict rate. Case settled out of court. LICENSING.—James Greatrex, landlord of the Cross Keys, Dinas Powis, and Henry Hadley, Three Horse Shoes, also of Dinas Powis, applied for an extension of an hour on the occasion of an Oddfellows' annual dinner at the Cross Keys on Monday next. Hadley thought he might as well kave an extension as Mr Greatrex. The application in the first instance was granted, but in the latter it was refused. SWEARING IN OF A NEW CONSTABLE.—Mr Frank Rudolph Schlegelmilch, a German by birth, was sworn in as constable for the County of Glamorgan, and will be stationed at Penarth. TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET ON THE BARRY RAILWAY.—Henry Jenks, labourer, Courtenay-road, Barry Dock Town, was summoned by the Barry Dock and Railways Company, for travelling on the Barry Railway, between Barry and Cadoxton, without a ticket.—Mr J. J. Handcock (Messrs Downing and Handcock, solicitors, Cardiff), appeared to prosecute, and P.C. Boland proved service of summons. Defen- dant did not appear.-Richard Henry Jenkins, a porter.in the employ of the company at Cadoxton Station, said on the 19th ultimo defendant was travel- ling by the 1.55 p.m. train to Cadoxton, at which station he was asked for his ticket, which he refused to give up. He then grew very violent, and attempted to leap over the i railings, but was pulled back by witness, and detained till the arrival of the police, when he gave several wrong names and addresses.- Defendant did not appear, and on the application of Mr Handcock a warrant was issued for his apprehen- sion. A VERY BAD CASE.—Dennis Sullivan, Salop-place, Penarth, was charged with setting his chimney on fire. P.C. C. H. Thomas said it was a very bad case, for defendant, in a drunken state, had thrown a paraffin lamp on the fire.-The Bench said the man might have put the whole street on fire.-Fined 10s and costs, or seven days' hard labour.—Defendant said he would go to gaol rather than pay. FURIOUS DRIVING.—William Stephens was sum- moned for furiously driving a horse and cart in Stan- well-road, Penarth, on the 24th ultimo.—P.C. David Francis proved the case.—Fined 10s, including costs, or seven days. DRUNKENNESS.—William Every, Penarth, was fined 5s, or three days, for being drunk at Penarth on Sun- day, the 25th ultimo. P.C. D. Francis proved the case. The man was described as having been drink- ing in the Albert Club on the occasion. ASSAULTING HIS "LAWFUL WIFrl,. "-Dennis Sulli- van, labourer, Penarth, the defendant in a previous case, was then charged by his wife, Elizabeth Sullivan, with an assault. Mr Sullivan said she was the law- ful wife of the defendant, and on the 24th ultimo her husband insulted her in Cardiff, and threatened to take her life. He also threw her basket of goods out into the street, and made use of language which was unfit to be heard in court. She had shielded him many times, but she would not shield him again.— The Magistrates' Clerk (Mr Morris) pointed out that the case was one of assault, and not of using insult- ing language.-The Bench dismissed the case, but in- formed the defendant that if he was summoned before the court again on a similar charge he would be bound over to keep the peace, or punished in some way. A SUSPICIOUS CHARACTER AT BARRY DOCK TOWN. -Jack Shepherd, a poorly and quaintly clad indivi- dual, who described himself as a vendor of water cresses and living in Bute-street, Cardiff, was brought up in custody charged on suspicion with stealing a fowl. P.C. Stephen Davies said at about six o'clock on Saturday morning lie saw the prisoner in Weston- road, Barry Dock Town, carrying a bag and a basket. He questioned him, and found the basket contained flowers and the bag a fowl, which had only recently been killed, and was quite warm. Prisoner said he bought the fowl of a hawker, at Bridgend, and had walked from Llantwit Major that morning.—Mr Superintendent Wake applied for an adjournment for a week, so that enquiries might be made as to pri- soner's antecedents.—Application granted.
