THE SOUTII WALES CHOIR. Victory has once more crowned the persevering f Sorts of the brave Welsh Singers and their leadei. At home tuey have laboured hard and long to prepare for the combat. The victory, of which the telegraph Wars the news, is, we feel assured, well desei ved. Any line who heard the rehearsal on Monday in the Market-place must have felt that the opposing competitors had no easy took to perform, if they were to deprive our Welsh country men of the honour to which they aspired. Particulars have not yet readied us, but we ex- pect that the triumph is more complete than last year. Walking over the coursd is not so honour- able nor so glorious as fairly and honourably carrying away the priz? from a rival. We can well anticipate the feelings of th" five hundred who have travelled such a distance to cornpeto for honour, now the competition is over and the reward gained. Welcouio were they on their previous victory thrice welcome will they now be among neighbour; townsmen, and friends, who lilt feel that they share i ho triumph won, for they speak the same language have the same national traditions, and have done their best to uphold andaupport the competitors in their noble aspira- tions to win the stcoud time without an interval the greatest prize England has ever offered to her sons of the musical world, in the name and to th honour of Welshmen. Honour to whom honour is due.
IMPRISONMENT FOB DEBT BY COUNTY (JOUKT JUDGES. It is certainly a matter of congratulation that one o( the gravest defects which afflict our system of legal procedure will be swept away it the re- commendations of the Select Committee on Im- prisonment f'T Debt are carried into effect by the legislature. Perhaps it is rather too much to expect that any measure hearing upon the subject will be introduced this session especially as we have now reached th terrible July during which th.: "ID ,t.-aore of tin; innooeuts" invariably takes plaoe, bit, there a m be little doubt that be- fore long an ol i-standiig and serious evil will be entirely abolished. J^r some few years im- prisoument for debt-, as tar as the superior court- at lav are concerned, has b en a thing of the past ,&nd it is so" ewhat a ourious anomaly that it ftuouid now linger 10 so -daring a form anion* us It ought perhaps to bd remembered that County Court judges i;aire still the power left to commit ,t<> prison t^h -debtor who fails in his payments vmd those who are acqu ti tctJ with the admin- istration of th* law at t ieir hands will know how ji e..r».:u it i* in its results. Nor is its uncer- tainty its only b id feature, it is at the same tim. decidedly unequal because it draws no distinction in its relations between debtors for large and small sums which naturally press with undu- servrity upon the latter, whilst the frequence uf the commitments to prison of the same ill- dividual proves that it is not deterrunt to th, dishonest debtors In this way it often inflict undue and urusl punishment upon those who only labour under temporary eiub trr issments or heavy misfortunes. r And thore is certainly one other objecti)u that I may bo urged with much raoro foreo against the present system, and that is that the prisoners confined in the county gauls entail a large ex pense upon the ratepayers which it is decidedly unjust they should have to bear. It is to our mind not very clear that X, Y, and Z, should suffer because B refuses or is unable to pay A I Oa? would naturally think that A should be a loser or a victim in his business transactions, that he should bear the consequences of his own weak- ness or remissness, and not let the burden fall upon the shoulders of his fellow subjects. At all events those who are creditors for much larger sums have to do so. Suppose, for example, an impecunious Micawber waiting for "something to turn up," runs an account at the littlo general shop to the amount of two or three pounds; by this act he renders himself liable, especially if the keeper of the same be a bit of a Shylock, to a few weeks lodging without beinc; troubled with an inconvenient hotel bill at the end of his stay but if on the other hand, a denizen of some smart suburban villa incurs liabilities to the tune of two or three hundred pounds, the most the tradesmen, or creditor can do is to sue for the same in a supe- rior c ourt, and having obtained j idg nent obtain his debt the best way he can. He certaiuly cannot imprison the defaulter except under very special exceptions; so that the practical effects of the t state of the law in thisrespecuksto incarcerate the1 unfortunate individual whq owes a few pounds bu to let scot free the one who owes a few hundreds. This is not certaiuly in harmony with the spirit of English justice, and almost justifies in one sen3<i the popular myth that there exists two varieties of laws—one for the rich and another for varieties of laws-one for the rich and another for the poor. As we have before said, imprisonment tor debt exercises no salutary check upon the dis- honest debtor, as the returns p resented to the Committee show, and this being the case there can be no excuse for retaining the practice which only becomes a punishment to thosj prevented from discharging their liabilities only by their poverty. And there are beneficial results in another direction which would ensue if Par- liament acts upon the suggestions of the Com- mittee. In a large number of districts there is an immense amount of credit given principally by small shopkeepers, who rely upoa the power' they possess of depriving the debtor of his liberty should they be unable to recover the amount due to them. In this manner an unwholesome credit system has grown up which bears with special hardships upon those who have but limited in- comes, because they are compelled to pay upon the articles they purchase a profit sufficient to cover the bad debts of their neighbours. It is most devoutly to be wished that the ancient com- mon law of England will be returned to and that the Debtors Act of 1869 may be so modified and altered as to abolish the power of imprisonment by County Court Judges, exoepting, of course, cases where a debt has been contracted by false pretences or misrepresentations. Such a step would confer benefits upon more than one portion of the community, because whilst protecting the person who has every bona firle intention of pay- ing his debts, it would ai we have pointed out, put a decisive end to the system of credit which imposes such unfair disadvantages upon the ready iduney customer, and the tradesmen who would supply his goods much cheaper where he not liable to the dishonest practices of those who run up bills with no earthly intention of discharging them.
TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. If one part 'of Aberdare more than another requires demolition and reconstruction it is that part of High-street which clusters around the Farmer's Arms. Between the bridge over the Dare and the top of Canon-street, that side of High-street is almost one dense nursery of crime and immorality. On most Sundays there are drunken brawls and disgraceful scenes, which are most offensive to decent persons hav- ing to pass that way. In clearing away some of those nests of infamy, and remodelling the street generally, the Board of Health are doing a very requisite and good work. As at present constructed it is narrow and dangerous, full of abrupt angles, around which the drivers of I vehicles dart at a furious rate,not seeming to be concerned about the mischief they may do. There are hopes however that the danger will bo to a great extent removed. Now that the work is under hand, it is to be hoped that the Board will do their part efficiently so as to render that thoroughfare as safe forpedestrians, and especially children,as any part of the town. The wh' le of High-street from No. 1 to the bridge over the Dare Railway requires widen- ing. It would be greatly improved, and so in fact would Commercial-place, by a portion of the garden at that end being taken away and thrown into the thoroughfare. But the public can afford to wait for a while in this respect if the other portion be done. We know not how far the Board intends to proceed with immediate improvements, but we should be glad to see the street much widened from the point of which the work is b)gun upon to the promises of the late Mr Morgan Williams on the right hand side, and then the work of demolition and improvement begun on the other side, taking those dilapidated huts and that ugly and dan- gerous corner of the Pariah Church Yard. Un- til this is done High-street will remain what it now is, dirty, ugly, and unsafe to travel through. Any one who has noticed vehicles dashing down the bridge at the Gadlys end, or has seen them turn the angle into Canon-street, or round the Mason's Arms, must have felt as- tonished that so few accidents occur at those points. It has long been the fashion to say that if a Bishop or a Lord should be killed in a railway collision, we should then soon have railway management improved. We hope it will not be necessary to have a member of the Board of Health or any one belonging to the members' families killed or maimed in High- street, before it will be possible to get its dan- gerous points improved. Now that a beginning is made, we hope to see a good work done, if not to the extent we have indicated, to a con- siderable portion of it. Taking the street al- together the worst spots, in more senses than one, are being first attacked, and in their place no doubt we shall see structures raised that will be a credit rather than a disgrace to the town.
BOARD OP GUARDIANS.—The usual weekly meeting of this Board was teld on Saturday, Mr B. Kirkhouse in the ohair. The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed. The Clerk read a petition, which, acoordiog to a resolution passed at the last meeting, he had prepared against the 3rd clause of Mr Forster's Elemen- n tary education Amendment Bill. The Clerk pI esented a bill for legal expenses which had been incurred under the following circumstances An Ir.ler had been made to remove a pauper to Nuneaton, in Warwickshire, he having asserted that he had only been six months resident in the parish. The authorities of that place had, how- ever appealed, and upon investigation it was found that the man had been more than-12 mouths in receipt of relief from this parish7 The bill for legal expenses had amounted to £34: Its lOd but of this Mr Dalton had taxed off jE23 15s 10d leaving .£10 :9s to be paid. A cheque for the amount was gi\en. The vaccination officer for the Aberdare distriot reported the outbreak of four fresh cases of small-pox during the week, ind one death. There were no cases in the Vleri hyr district. The quarterly report of the Finance Committee was read, aud bills to the imount of £ 3,658 18s 10 J orleied to be paid. I ho .Master reported the number of inmates of he House to be 229, against tö8 in the corres- ponding week of last year. Mr Richard Jones ;uvi' notice thpt at the next meeting he would i live that the seo.,rid-claszi lares now allowed to ••fie-rs when removing paupers be reduced to oIrJ tjjlass. Tiiere was no filler public .business. THE IlrcroR OT MERTNRTTON RITUALIior-Tbe Rector preached the first of a proposed sprits of sermons on Ritualistic practices in the Church of England," on Sunday evening, at St. David's Church. The text chosen was 14th chap. I Tim. 16 v. The rev. gentleman first alluded to the petition forwarded to the Archbishop and Bishops in Convocation by 483 priests to appoint con- fessors, or to introduce a Romish sacrament into the Church of England. "Surely" said the speaker, the furce of even ritualistic Imperti- nence could go no further." The remarks of the Archbishop and the various Bishops -who spoke on the subject were given, the rector remarking that perhaps these would have Piore weight than anything he could say. Tho small books called Books for Children," solct in half-peuny num- bers, were next alluded, to and tho pernicious doctrines which they instilled into the minds of young children,duly set forth, one of these being that no child couAd hope f-r forgiveness, unless he confessed b\.s sins to a "priest." The rev. gentleman tlealt entirely with the subject of con- fession, ird urged in the strongest terms the necessity which existed for all good Churohmen to rise and stamp out the abominations of ritual- ism from their midst. HHNAWAY P.VUPEH CHILDREN,—Jane Blackwell ana Margaret Evans, inmates of the Workhouse, aged respectively 15 and 10 years of age, were charged at the Merthyr Police Court, on Monday, with stealing a quantity of wearing apparel, the property of the Guardians of the Uniou and of the other inmates of the house. The case was rather a peculiar one, the children having effected their escape over the walls of the Workhouse during the nignt, forced the lock of a door, and managed somehow to reach Carmarthen, where they were detained. They were brought before the Bench last week, but remanded until the Guardians should determine what to do with them, and they had directed the Master to prose- cute. Some clothing which had been found on them was indentified by the master and two in- mates of the house; and the case having been duly proved, Blackwell was sentenced to 21 day's hari labour, and three years in a Reformatory. With regird to the younger girl there appeared to be some difficulty about her age, and the case was adjourned for information on this subject. AGRICULTURAL PHOSPKCTS.—The Mark Lane Express of last Monday says Much of the hay that was threatened last week has been secured in fair order, and more has been cut. The blooming of the wheat seems to be passing fav- ourably, and we have some prospeoi of fair quality, whatever the yidd. Some of the forward tracts of country in France have been laid by rain; but as a whole, fair progress has been made. In Belgium, Holland, and Germany it is the same, but with these countries, as with our own, stocks have run so short that prices show little difference since our last, though the tendency has certainly been downwards. Our foreign supplies have lately about kept pace with the regular demand, keeping foreign stocks pretty equal, and, as it is 0 computed, we shall yet have from 250,000 to 300,000 qrs. from California by August the 31st. I'his, with a fair complement of red and the con- tributions from Australia and Europe, may keep the markers well fed until harvest time." BREACH OF CONTllACT.-At the Merthyr Police- court, on Saturday, before the Rev John Griffith and Mr J. Probert, M.D., Morgan Lewis, puddler, employed at the Abernant Works, was sum- moned for absenting himself from work without lawful excuse. Mr Plews appeared for the pro- secution. The compensation claimed was £ 2, and the case having been duly proved, this amount was ordered to be paid with costs, or in default one month's hard labour. ARRIVAL OF THE PEMBROKE AT NEW YORK.— The South Wales Atlantic Steamship Company's ss. Pembroke arrived at New York early on Tues- day morning, all well, '.having experienced head winds during the whole of the voyage. LOCAL BILL IN PARLIAMENT.—The L rds' am- endments to the Llantrisant and Taff Vale Junc- tion Railway Bill were considered and agreed to in the House of Commons on Monday, and the Bill now only awaits the Royal assent to become law. The Lords' amendments to the Taff Vale Railway Bill were also considered and agreed to, and tne Bill now only awaits the Royal assent to become law. FOUND DROWNED.—On Sunday afternoon the dead body of a middle-aged man, named Thos. John, was discovered in the Glamorganshire Canal at Ynisygroad, near Troedyrhiw. It is reported that the unfortunate man had complained of pains in his he id for some time previous. He was missed from home on the previous Wednesday morning, and leaves a wife and family of five children. The deceased was a boatman on the Glamorganshire Canal, and lived at Pontywaith, near Quaker's-yard. THE SOUTH WALES CrroIR.-Tha last two re- hearsal in Wales previous to the Choir competing for the second time for the thousand guinea prize, were given on Monday, in the Market House. It was originally intended that the performances should have come off in the public park, per- mission to use which had been granted by the Board of Health, but inasmuch as the park is public property, no regular charge could have been made for admission, and the Choir would have had to take their chance of payment, an ar- rangement which was not deemed satisfactory, and the Market House being the largest available building, was fitted up for the occasion. Hun- dreds crowded into the town from all parts o fthe district, the bells of St. Elvan's Church rung merry peals, and considerable enthusiasm was manifested. A magnificent silk flag bearing the emblems of South Wales, was presented to the Choir by Mrs. Lewis of Green Meadow, and a sympathising address from some Welsh residents in America. Both afternoon and evening con- certs were crowded, and of the singing it can only be said that it was as near perfection as possible. CIIQI.ERA.—In view of the probable importation to this country of Asiatic cholera, whicli is now prevailing in various parts of the continent of Europe, a circular has been issued by the medical officers of the Local Government Board, warning municipal and other authorities to adopt precau- tions against the spread of the infection. Special stress is laid upon the necessity for thoroughly testing all sources of water supply which are in any degree open to the suspicion of impurity, and also for limewashing uncleanly premises, especial. ly such as are densely occupied. Disinfection should be very freely and frequently employed in contaminated places while people cannot be too careful in guarding against the danger of breath- ing air which is foul with effluvia from any polluted source. A hope is expressed that local bodies and private companies will heartily co- operate in whatever measures may be deemed prudent for preventing the propagation of so dread a calamity. MOUNTAIN ASH. SMALL-POX—The epidemic of small pox, which it was hoped was fast disappearing from our midst, has broken out with renewed virulence, no less than 17 cases having been reported during the past week.
ABERDARE LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. The usual fortnightly and annual meeting of the Board took place on Thursday, when the following members were present: —R. H. Rhys, Esq., chairman; Messrs. J. W.

The Water Works having become the pro- perty of the Board, and the water rate being now due, it was arranged to engage Mr. David C, Hughes, brother of the Assistant Overseer, as collector of the water rate for the ensuing six months, for the sum of JE50. ASSISTANT INSPECTOR'S REPORT. The Assistant Inspector reported nine fresh cases of small pox since last meeting, being a decrease of five as compared with the previous fortnight.

A resolution was passed permitting Mr. Hill, contractor, to raise the old road in front of the late Thomas Morgan's property. ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN. The Clerk having intimated that it was the annual meeting, said the first step was to olect a chairman. Mr. W. Thomas had great pleasure in moving that Mr. Rhys be re elected chairman for the ensuing year, although he did not always agree with the chairman, who was -sometimes per- haps a little crotchety, but at the same time was entitled to much praise for the manner in which he had conducted the business. Mr. W. J. Thomas seconded, and Mr. Llew- elyn supportod, the proposition, which was unanimously carried. The Chairman thanked the Board for the confidence reposed in him, notwithstanding tho crotchets. (Laughter.) He hoped to display loss of them during the coming year. The Board was not a difficult one to manage, and ho had always met with every consideration at the hands of the members. ELECTION. The following are the retiring members at the next election, all of whom are eligible for re- election:—No. 1 Ward, Mr Leyshon. Rhys; No. 2 Ward, Mr William Davies; No. 3 Ward, Rev. Dr. Price No. 4 Ward, Mr. Dl. David. Mr W. J. Thomas was appointed to assist the chairman at the election. The Board then separated.
ABEllDARE POLICE COURT. TUESDAY.-( Before R. ll. Rhys, D. E. Williams, and J. Lewis, Esquires.) REFUSING TO QUIT —David Murphy and John Driscoll were charged with being drunk and re- fusingjto quit the Royal Oak publio-hous Station street, on Saturday night. Th"? landlady, Mrs Margaret Llewellyn, stated that both men came into the house very much intoxicated and asked for lodgings. She replied that the house was full and she could not accommodate them. They afterwards asked for two glasses of beer, which she decline! to supply them with, in consequence of their being too drunk. They refused to leave on being requested to do so. One of the defend- ants said he had lost some money in the house and would not go until he got it back again. She saw no money in their possession. A policeman, who had been sent for, came and put them out. P.C. Sparks deposed that both defendants were drunk. After being turned out, they returned again and he had to put them- out second time. They behaved violently and attempted to catch hold of him by the collar. The Bench said it was quite clear the defendants were guilty of the otfence with which they were charged. They must have known it was their duty to leave the house on being requested to do so by the lanldady, instead of which they created a distur- bance, and had to be forced out. They were fined 20s and costs each, or 21 days hard labour in default. DKUNKARDS* LIST. Thomas Morgan, collier, was charged with being drunk and riotous in High-street, on the 5th inst. P.C. Dyment saw the defendant in High-street, at half-past 10 o'clock, very drunk, going from one public-house to another loosing for beer. He also challenged persons in the street to fight and collected a crowd. Fined 15s and costs, or 14 days.—David James, late Rose and Crown, Trecynon, was charged with being drunk. P.C. Ford found him helplessly drunk in the street, and he had to be conveyed to the station in a cart. Fined 10s and costs, or 14 days—William Harding, Treherbert, was charged with a similar offence, on the 7th inst. P.S. Melhuish saw him in Market-street, about 8 o'clock on Monday night, drunk and fighting with another man. Defendant was co- vered with blood. The other man escaped, the street being very crowded at the time. Fined 159 and costs—John Roes and David Davies were charged with being drunk and riotous on the 7th inst. P.C. James saw them at a quarter to 11 on Monday night, in Commercial-street, drunk and fighting with each other. There was a large crowd around and the street blocked up. With the assistance of P.C. Davies both were taken to the station. Mr Supt. Thomas stated that Davies had been up eleven times before, although only 21 years of age. The Bench said such conduct could not be tolerated, Davies should not have the option of paying a fine this time,but would be sent to Swansea gaol for one month. Rees was fined 15s and costs, or go in company with his friend for 21 days. -Eliz-ib,tti Brown was charged with being drunk. P.S. Melhuish saw her at 10 o'clock, on Saturday ni^ht, the 2lst ult., in front of the Royal Exchange, very drunk, surrounded by a large crowd of people. It appeared she was fined 10s and costs in April last, for a similar offence, and the Bench now doubled it, viz., 208 and costs.—John Gully was fined IOs and costs for being drunk in Cardiff-road, on the 18th ult. P.C. Edmunds proved the case.—Samuel Bird, a young man of 20, was fined in a like amount for a similar offence in Cardiff-road. The same con- stable proved the case.—Eben Davies was charged with being drunk in High-street, on the 26th ult. P.C Davies saw him at the bottom of High-street, at 6 o'clock on Saturday night, very drunk, and a number of people about. This was his fifth appearance, he having been fined last month 20a and costs. He was now fined 92 and costs, or a month in default. ASSAULTING THE POLICB. 1 nomas James, a ragged looking young fellow, who stated that lie came from Hereford, was brought up charged with assaulting P.C. Robb in the execution of his duty. The constable stated that at 12 o'clock, on Saturday night last, he found the prisoner in High-street very drunk and challenging people in th&tstreet. He refused to go away. On being taken into custody he threw himself on his back and kicked witness on the leg and on the arm. Pri. soner had to be carried to the station. Prisoner said he bad been iu the cell since Saturday. The constable tore his jacket oft his back. P.C. Robb said prisoner was so violent that it took four constables to take him to the station. He was sent to prison for one calendar month with hard labour. PERMITTING DRUNKENNESS. Thomas Daly landlord of the Farmer's Arms, High-street, was charged with permitting drunkenness in his house. The landlady appeared in answer to the summons. P.S. Cook deposed that at half-past 9 o clock, on Monday night, the 23rd ult., he visited the house in company with P C. James, and found the place all in confusion. The son and the daughter of the landlord were fighting and there were three or four other men scuffling "up and down." Several cups were broken and all in the house were more or less drunk. The sereams could be heard a long way off. The street was blocked up by the crowd outside. lie and the other oon- stable had to clear the house themselves the landlord was sitting down and did not assist. He had never seen a house in a worse state ofconfusion. The landlady said the row was caused through her soa and daughter quarrelling, which they often did, but she could not help it. In reply to the Bench, Mrs Dally stated that sh" meant to leave the house as soon as she could find another. The Bench informed her that she would not be allowed to take another public house. The case was adjourned for a week, and in the mean time if they left the house, that fact would probably induce the Bench to inflict a lower penalty. A CONSTABLB FINED.—Police constable ihomas Sparks was summoned for assaulting Ann Beynon, a married woman, livin g in High-street. There was also a summons against Mrs Beynon for be- ing drunk. The case against the constable was hoard first. Mr Plews (Messrs Simons and Plews) appeared for Mrs Beynon. The latter having been sworn said: Iain the wife of Wil- li nn Beynon, sinker, 8, High-street, near Messrs Robtris and Co.'s Brewery? On Monday night, I saw a man on the ground'and Sparks standing over bin). I afterwards saw the man going on. I don't know who he was. As I went down I saw another man brushing his coat sleeve, Sparks aid, D— your eyes and struck him down a second timr- I was near the man at the time. Mrs Jones and Mrs Jnhni were with m The letter remarked, It is a pity to s-e a ti ly j man knocked about like that." I said, Yes, it is." Sparks came on to me and said, You d- old w—" and struck me, I fell against a sharp stone in the wall of tho Bunch of Grapes. I was speechless. My husband then came up. I had not spoken a word to the policeman. I had no bonnet or hat on. I had not tasted a drop of in- toxicating drink that day. This occurred between a quarter and half-past 11 o'clock at night, and about 15 yards from my own door. By Mr Supt. Thomas It was a straight blow, not a push. I attempted to go down to the police station, but my husband would not allow me. My husband went and in- formed the Inspector. Mrs Martha Jones, 7, High street, said: On Monday night, I was standing talking with Mrs Beynon. Her husband and Mrs Johns were also there. I saw a man fall down on the road, and I and others went to- wards the spot. Mrs Johns said, "It is a pity to see a tidy man knock-d down like that." The man rose up and was knocked down again, and afterwards Mrs Beynon was knocked down by the defendant, who struck her in the chest to the best of my knowledge. He struck her against a wall and I saw blood running down her face. Mrs Boynon did not interfere or say a word. Her husband then came up and asked defendant if he was aware that the woman struck down was his wife. Defendant said he was not aware of it, but thought she was some d- old prostitute. He asked his reason for thinking so, and he replied that it was because she had no hat or bonnet on. I saw another man knocked down, and he is h. re to-day. Mr Beynon asked his name. I have lived near Mrs Beynon two years and never saw her worse for drink, The other constable did nothing. He was a very short distance away. A man named Davies, an engine driver on the Taff Vale Railway, was next cailed. He deposed On Monday night I was passing along High- street on my way home. I saw P.C. Sparkes and P.C. James talking to a man on the road. Sparkes said, What the d — do you want here ?" I walked on about five yards and then stood, as soon as I stood Sparks struck him; down a second time and said "Get away home." As the man was rising Sparks gave him a kick. I don't know who the man was he went away after that. Then Sparks came on to me and said, What the d- do you want," and knocked me down. I got up and he did the same a second time. Then some womei came up. One of them said What a shame to see a tidy man knocked about in that way." Then Sparks left me alone and struck a woman down. I have been informed since it was Mrs Beynon. As I was brushing my clothes I went across to P.C. James and asked him if he thought I deserved that treatment. He replied, Yeg, and if you say another word you will get a d- sight more." Mr Beynon came on and asked my name, saving he wanted me as a witness. The following night i went to the In spector and reported Sparks. William Beynon, husband of complainant, gave corroborative evidence. When he told Sparks he should sum- mons him, he replied that he did not care. There was no pretence for saying that his wife was af- fected by drink. He had been married to her 13 years and had never seen her under the influence of drink. Mr Inspector Rees was then called in defence. He stated that on the night in q lestion Mr Beynon came to the station. Sparks was pre- sent at the time, and had reported to him some- thing before that. Mr Rhys You better pro- duce your report. Witness I took nothing down from Beynon. Mr Plews objected to the report- book being produced, as it only contained one side. Witness said he recommended Beynon to state his complaint to the magistrates. He (witn ess) had reported what Beynon said to the Superintendent. P.C. James deposed I remember the night in question being with Sparks. When w e got near Roberts's stores there was a large crowd of people standing on the road quarrelling and swearing. I and Sparks tried to disperse them. The people were the worse for drink. This woman (complainant) came on and interfered and made use of very bad language. She was drunk. Mr Rhys You believed her to be drunk at the time. Witness •• She was drunk, sir. She got pushed down in the crowd and afterwards accused Sparks with having done it. Sparks was not near her at the time. She was afterwards taken to the house by the husband. There were from 20 to 30 persons present. By Mr Plews: We have not got one of them here to-day. Sparks did say complainant was a prostitute, because she had no hat or bonnet on, not because she was pushed down. Another man was pushed down once or twice. lie was three parts drunk. He was in the crowd and refused to go away. No other man was pushed or knocked down. I had been with Sparks all that night. Mr Rhys asked whether it was intended to proceed with the other charge of drunkenness. Mr Supt. Thomas No, 1 think not, sir. Mr Rhys considered it was wise not to do 8". The magistrates retired for a few minutes and, on returning into court, Mr Rhy, stated that it was with very great pain they had listened to the case, and had come to the con- clusion that Sparks had exceeded bis duty very considerably. It was quite clear from the evidence that he did assault thjse p-ople without any oc- casion, and the Bench were therefore compelled to inflict a fine upon him. Mr Supt. Thomas, interposing, stated that Sparks bad been in the force for two years and bore a good character. Mr RtlYs said they had always considered him a very respectable young man, but the public must be protected even against the police them- selves. A fine ot 40s and costs was then imposed. INDECENT ASSAU LT.- William Fitzgerald, la- bourer, was charged with committing an indecent assault upon Mary Jane Morgan, a child two years of age. The evidence of the child's mother and that of Mr E/an Jones, surgeon, tended to show that a horrible attempt had been made by the prisoner upon the child, and he was com- mitted to the Assizes for trial. Mr Thomas Phill ips (Rosser and Phillips) defended the pri- soner. POCKET PICRTNG.—Edward Brown and John Herbert, middle aged men, described as "vocalists," were charged with attempting to pick pockets at the rehearsal of the South Wales Choral Union on Monday last. Mr Phillips appeared in defence. P.S. Parry deposed. On the 7th inst, a little after 11 a.m., I saw the prisoners coming down Abernant-road in com- pany with another man. I followed them to- wards Aberdare. Saw them all talking to- gether till they came near the Vicarage, 0 when the other man left them and went on in front. I saw no more of them till about 2 o'olock in Market-street, in a large crowd of people. I was in plain clothes watching them for some time. I saw them go up to where people obtained tickets of admission into the market place. Whenever there was a bit of a crush, I no- ticed Brown putting out his hand and feel- ing the pockets of several people. He then went away for about five minutes. Herbert and the other man kept Glose up together to the place whore the tickets wore issued, but they did not tako tickets they went back to the outside of the crowd. Brown was then in the middle of the crowd coming on with the stroam, the other men joining him. In a short time Herbert re- turned and I saw his hand coming out of the slit of a female's dress. I watched him for about an hour doing the same thing. Saw Brown with hisfingors close to a man's pocket. I pointed Brown out to the Inspector and he took him into custody. I turned my head round te put my hand upon the other man but he was gone. I saw Herbert a minute or two after and I arrested him. The witness was cross-examined by Mr Phillips but his testimony could not be shaken. John Thomas, working at the Chemical Works, Pontaman, near Llanelly, stated that he was in the crowd and lost his purao, which con- tained £ 5 10s. Mr Supt. Thomas then applied for a remand in order to enquire jato the prisoners' antecedents. They were remanded for a week. ASSAULT.—Theophilus Urant was charged with assaulting Mary Rees, at Aberaman. It appeared defendant was fighting with another man in front of complainant's house. She interfered, when defendant pulled her hair and struck her. Fined 10s and costs, or 14 days. AFFILIATION CASE.—Llewellyn Davies was adjudgtd the father of the illegitimate child of Mary Morgan, born on the 6th ult, and was ordered to pay 33 6.-1 a week for the fi st six weeks, 3s alter, and costs. TRESPASS, &c.—William Picton was ordered to pay Id damage,6d fine, and costs,for trespassing en land in the occupation Mr Richard Richards. There was a cross summons f.gainst Mr Richards, jun., for assault, which however was dismissed.
BREACH OF THE MINES' REGULATION ACT. At the Merthyr Police-court on Monday, be fore Messrs R. H. Rhys, and D E. Williams, David Tuomas, manager of the Graig Colliery, Aberdare, appeared to answer the adjourned summons, charging him with comaiitting a breach of the Minus' Regulation Act in allowi ig a b >y | named Llewellj'n, under twelve years of ago, to bo employed in the le? :l, of which he had charge. The particulars of this case were published at length in last week's issue, and it may be re- membered that Mr Simons, on behalf of the pro- secution, applied for a remand in order to produce more witnesses, on account of the line of defence taken. Mr Simons now appeared in support of the information, and Mr Williams (Linton and Williams), Aberdare, for the defence. S >vera! witnesses were called—colliers,h iuliers, firemen, &e, employed in the same I vel, all of whom distinctly testiûed to having seen the boy Llewellyn working with Thomas Edward Davies day after day. Two of these witnesses had boys under age working with them until the accident to David had occurred, when all the boys were sent out. Notices had been put up on the 1st of January to the effect that no boys under the age of twelve should be employed, but some of them worked on as before until the accident happened. Defendant was sworn, and said that th," first time he saw the boy Llewelyn in the level with David he ordered them out, and subseqnmtly on meeting David with the boy threatened to sum- mon him if he saw the boy in the levd a^ain. No boys were turned out of the pit after the accident and on the 10th of January he stopped 32 boys under age from going into the level. The Bench considered the case to have been duly proved, and on hearing that an appeal was intended, inflicted a penalty of t:5 and costs.
RESULTS OF THE COAL COMMIT fEE. The Times of Monday contains an excellent summary of the evidence given before the Coal Committee, from which we make tho following extracts :— It is now announced that the Committee on Coal has concluded the taking of evidence, and, before the publication of the Rsport, it may be useful to gather into a focus some of the principal items of the evidence given before it. Air Mun lolla moved for this Committee, and at its first meeting, on the lltli of March, Mr Ayrton was elected chairman. Mr Mundella and Mr Liddell have also occsionally taken the chair. The Committee consists of 17 numbers, and it has held 20 meetings, calling before it 37 witnesses, two of whom were numbers of the Committee, fourteen were official witnesses, nine represented the colliery proprietors, one spoke for the iron and steel trade, four were merchants, and seven representatives of the working colliers. Inform- ation about railway conveyance and the sources of supply In foreign countries was incidentally anorl d; the latter, however, but meagrely. The total output of the coalfields in Great Britain was in 1872, 123,386,758 tons th num- ber of persons employed in this production was 393,314. The latter estimate includes the whole number of persons employed about the mines, whereas in a large part of the evidence, when min T8 are referred to hewers only are meant. It follows that, on the average, the production for each person employed was noarly 311 tons. There was a considerable increase in the number of persons employed in and about the mines in 1872, but the precise number for previous years cannot be accurately giv m as it w s not compul- sory on coal owners until last year to send in re- turns to inspectors. Tho output in 1872 was likewise an advance on that of 1871, which may be stated (with labour statistics) to have been 117,186,278 tons. This is 7,000,000 tons mor. than the output of 1870, which only exceeds that of 1869 by 3,000,000. The number of tons of coal exported wis in 1872, 13,212,000 • iu 1871 12,748,000. 8I1'
GLAMORGANSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. The following local cases were disposed of, in addition to those published in our last ROISBERY FROM THE PERSON AT MERTUY8 TYDFIL Henry Perry (25) a barber, of imperf ct educa- tion, and John Henry (53) a gunsmith, described to be of no education, wer, indicted on the charge of stealing one purse, one sovereign, three half sovereigns, and five shillings, from the per-on of Elizabeth Thomas, at Merthyr Tydfil, on the 14th ot June, 1873 vlr O. Joues prosecuted. The prisoners pleaded guilty. The Chairman said they were a pair of plundering rogues, and no doubt confederates. They w re each sentenced to eight calendar months' imprisonment, the first, middle, and last four days of which terms to bd in solitary confinement. MALICIOUS WOUNDIXC AT ABEHDARE. John Morris, a collier, 40 years of age, des- cribed as being able to read. was charged with maliciously wounding Jane Edwards,at Aberdar", on the 21st May. 1873. the injuries, it appears, were caused by it lump of coal. The prisoner pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to four calen. dar months' imprisonment at Cardiff. SERIOUS ASSAULT AT MERTHra TYDFIL. John Davies, a labourer, 6 A years of age, of no education, was indicted upon the charge of un- lawfully assaulting Elizabeth Evans, at Merthyr Tydfil, on the 1st June, 1873, Mr Beor conduct- ed the prosecution. The prisoner was undefend- ed. It appears that the complainant was a widow, and lived with the prisoner. She was awakened on the morning in question by severe blows be- ing inflicted upon her by the prisoner. She ran out of the house, and subsequently a police oon- itable took him in charge. The jury found him guilty, and he was sontenced to six months' im- prisonment.
IRON AND COAL TRADE. When any disquietude or depression prevails in the staple trades of the district, there at least seems to be some secret consolation in being able to account for the existing state of things. To find the cause, indeed, goes near to suggesting the remedy. The iron trade has, if anything, been getting quieter and quieter for the last few weeks, and the cause of it is in a gr.'at measure explainable. The end of the first half year was approaching, and, as usual at midyear, makers and buyers began to pause to "look before and after." For the last three months of t'te half- year makers can at least look b .ck upon an active trade, but the first quarter is no better than a blank. What the state of things will be up to the end of the half of the year none can positively tell, but many may hold different opinions. All the ironmaking establishments of the dis- trict are still in full work, but how long they will continue so is of course uncertain. Not very long, unless the present contracts are shortly re- placed by others. At present orders do not come in very freely, for the reason already assigned but the market is undoubtedly in a healthy state, and manufactured iron, altli jugh turned out in snch immense quantities, is not yet a drug there. Rail- way iron. at least, must continue in extensive re- quest, because large quantities have to be laid down, and there are no stocks in the markets. The railmakers of the district aie still, therefore, inclined to take a favourable view of the future, and no v ry "'hard times" are apprehended. There has of late been more activity in bar- making. During a few days of the past week the Nant- yglo and Blaina Company despatched 900 tons iron rails to Riga Dowlais Iron Company, 1,200 rail to Stettin, 917 tons to Riga, and 560 tons to New York; Blaenavon Company, 6^0 tons rail to lbrail; Ebbw Vale Company, U JO tons rail to Cronstadt; Page and Uhlsen, 17 tons hoop iron to Palamos It. Broth rhood, 70 tons bolt and rod iron to Pernambuco W' An. ning, 459 tons rail to Rio de Janeiro R. Craw- shay, 230 tons bar to Naples; Aberdare Com- pany, 220 tons) rail to Aarhus and Guest and Co., 248 tons rail to New York. As I stated in my last week's report, the di- vidend of the Ebbw Vale Steel, Iron, and Coal Company for the past half-year is 7s 6d per share, which, with the previous distribution of 12s 6d, makes 20s per share for the year. It may not be amiss to add this dividend is just equal to 4 per cent, on the capital employed, as it is a fact well worthy the attention of trades union agitators, who are constantly crying out aoout the enormous profits being made by iron and coal- masters The capital of the Ebbw Vale is over £2,000,000, and they have some of the finest iron- making establishments and collienes in the king- dorn. They have also extensive steel works, yet, with all these vast works and many advantages, the disturbances in the labour market during the first months of the year, and the ditiieulty of getting the men to work with regularity, have so seriously crippled the profits that the sh irehoiders are only to get 4 per cent, on such a precarious investment, which ought to realise at least 12 to cl 15 per cent. There is a little improvement in th'3 tin-plate trade. Buyers are coming t'orwar I more readily, cl aid quotations are firmer. There has been nn upward tendency in the coal trade of late. Prices instead of going lower, as many predicted, are again recovering earfier quotations, and they are not likely again to recede to any extent this year. About the same active trade is being done in stearn coils. In regard to house coals, it may be said that buyers have little chance now of influencing prices. The market is not over-stocked, and the time will soon come when they will have ag dn to secure winter supplies. There is, therfore, a general tendency to close contracts for several months to come. Sellers.are cons 'que I tl re-establish- ing quotations. Coke and patent fuel continue In active demand. The Cardiff coal and other shippers and mer- chants are beginning to move for i lcreased dock accommodation. A vast new dock scheme ha3 been propounded by Mr John Batchelor, and ha9 been apparently favourably received by the lead* ing merchants of that important port. The pro" posal is to build docks between the Penarth and Bute dooks, it being alleged that the present ac" commodation is insufficient to meet the require- ments of the port. There are, however, difference9 of opinion upon the point. The promoters sug' crests that the capital should be subscribed by the railway, iron and coal companies, and others in* terested in the prosperity of the port and district. The colliers of Monmouthshire have been hold* ing "deruDnstrations" at Pontypool Blackwood this week. At an open air meeting at the latter place the following resolution was passed "Tha1 this meeting expresses its unabated confidence the officers and the late and present executive the Amalgamated Association of Miners, andJbeg8 to thank them for their services during the late strike connected with the ironworkers in Moo* mouthshire and South Wales. It oonsiders the association worthy of the confidence of every miner in this county and South Wales generally' and pledges itself to do all in its power to further their interests. That the meeting- records it9 pleasure at finding the peaceful relations which now exist between the employers and employed engaged in mining operations in Monmouthshire and that, as the weighing clause in the MineS Act comes into operation on the 1st of August and as the em loyes have given notice for termlO- ation of existing contracts at the end of the pre sent month, hereby requests the employers to meet a deputation of workmen in a conciliatory manner and this meeting hereby expresses ItS willingness to form, with the employers, a boar' of arbitration, by which the question of weighing coal and other matters may be amicably settled) thereby preventing a possible cession of labour at the beginning of next month. illining World. ————— ■
