PONTYPRIDD PETTY SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY.—Before Messrs. D. W. Davies, T. P. Jenkins, Edward Thomas, Thomas Jones. Edward Edwards, Dr. II, N. Davies. WILFUL DAMAGE.—Sergeant Lewis, Treforest. charged William Evans with doing wilful damage to hay belonging to County Councillor James Roberts on the 7th inst. It seems that the man was sleeping on the hay-rick, and took out a quanty of hay.—Fined 7s. Gd., and 6d. damages.— Mary Ann Dore, Pontypridd, was charged by Thomas Morgan, landlord of the Rose and Crown, with creating a quarrel, and refusing te quit that house on Saturday last, and also, when turned out, with smashing a plate-glass window value £3. —The defence was that the stone was thrown at a man who was abusing the defendant's husband, and accidently struck the window.—Fined 10s., or 14 days' imprisonment. GAMBLING. — Henry Stephens, Yynysybwl, charged Arthur Hale with cheating him at the gambling table in the People's Park, on Monday last. It appears that Stephens staked some money, and lost 35s. in ten minutes. The stakes com- menced at sixpence and the last 10s., and lost menced at sixpence and the last 10s., and lost every time. There was one man, however, win- ning every time before he commenced staking.— Acting-sergeant Davies said his attention was called to a table in the park with a spindle. He had been cautioned to leave the field, and refused to go. When arrested he had sCl 7s. 6d. in his pockets, which was taken as bail.—Fined £2 and costs. ASSAULTING THE POLICE,—Edwin Jones and David Jones were charged with assaulting Police- constable W. Evans, Ynysybwl, on Saturday, last. The two defendants came forward and assaulted the officer, gave him a violent blow under the chin, and became so violent that one had to be hand- cuffed. Several of his triends tried to rescue him, and kicked the policeman who was at this time on the ground. The first defendant got up and took hold of the handcuffs, which had not been locked, and struck him on the head with them. (The con- stable produced his tunic which was covered with blood.) The defendant David Jones and the crowd then took away the prisoner, and the policeman was taken to the Windsor Hotel. About twenty minutes after the sergeant joined him, and they went to the prisoner's house, where also he behaved very violently and threatened to kill them.—Ed- ward Lewis and Thomas Joy gave corroborative evidence.—Dr. Morgan said the constable had an incised wound on his head three-quarters of an inch long and down to the bone. The constable had bled profusely since the wound was caused. lie also had several scratches on his face and a black eye.—The Bench thought this was one of the most brutal cases they ever had to try. and un- doubtedly they would have killed the constable if they could, They never knew such brutes they had not an atom of humanity.—Superintendent Jones Slid they were very violent men, and one of them was charged with assaulting a woman some time ago, but wr„s discharged.—Sentenced to four months' imprisonment each and to nay costs, otherwise to receive an additional fortnight's im- prisonment. PERMITTING DRUNKENNESS.—Robert Thomp- son, landlord of the Dynevor Arms, Crossvane, was charged with selling beer to a drunken person on Tuesday, the 18th of August.—Mr. James Phillips solicitor, defended.—Police-constable 104 visited the house twice on that day, and saw a man named George Williams in a drunken state. There was also a woman in the back room.—Robert Thomp- son, the defendant, said that Williams came to the house, and was served with drink first at noon, and afterwards in the evening, but the last time he had no beer, and was sober when he left the house.— George Williams, in giving his evidence, said he was not drunk, and his evidence was corroborated by John Palfrey.—Mrs. Robins said she saw the man Williams late that night, and was quite sober.—The case was dismissed. LARCENY.—Jane Harris, a widow, residing at Ynysybwl, was charged by John Roberts with stealing a waistcoat and a pair of trousers, value 14s., belonging to him. It seems that the defen- dant had been employed by George Lock, who resided in the house, and with whom the com- plainant lodged, to look after the lodgers. She came to the house' on Monday last somewhat the worse for drink. The clothes were afterwards pawned in the shop of Abraham Abelson. Defen- dant, on being arrested by Police-constable Llewellyn and charged, said she knew nothing about the matter.—Sentenced to seven days' im- prisonment.
