Evans, Ca- therine Heely, a miserable looking woman, was charged with Dtealing 5s, the property of Jere. miah Scanlan, a shoemaker, living in High-street, Aberdare. From tlJq evidence of complainant and his wife, it appeared that having known pri. soner for some time, they took her in to lodge for a couple of nights, and oc Saturday afternoon last, she was seen by complainant to go to the box in which the money had been placed, and which was not to be found afterwards. Prisoner, in a long rambling statement, endeavoured to make out that they were all drunk together, that she had found the money to keep house with since she had I een with them, and asserted her in- nocence in the strongest terms. The Bench, however, considered the charge fully proved, and committed prisoner to goal with hard labour for three weeks. IRoN AND COAL COMPANIES. —' An important and forcible illustration of the bad effeots on the British iron and steel trades of the higlf prices of enal and labour was furnished on Wednesday at the annual meeting of John Brown and Co., and Charles Cammell and Co., Sheffield. Mr Ellis, ohairman of the former, stated that the extra cost last year for coal and wages alone amounted to no less than £ 120,000. From the rise in wages continental makers were able to obtain orders for steel forginga, springs, &c., on the continent at prices which would not leave any profit here. The high rate of wages had almost shut them out of continental and American markets, although the Atlas Works turned out £ 150,000 worth of materiel every month, and must, therefore, have large contracts or stop working. At Cammell and Co.'s meeting, Mr Wilson, managing dirpo. tor, stated that fuel alone had cost them £75,000, and labour £26,000 more than last year. Divid- ends of 15 and 10 per cent. respectively were declared.
