PO-VCIIING OUTRAGE. was brought up on the charge of having been connected with the late poaching outrage on the Gogerddan estate, the full particu- lars of which case was published by us last week in our report of the Tre'rddol petty sessions. The prisoner stood remanded from the magistrates' meeting at Tre'rddol, last Thursday. The following evidence was given :— The evidence of the two keepers, James, was similar to that reported in our last week's account of the Tre'rddol petty sessions. The fresh evidence given on this investigation was as follows Funny Jones sworn My name is Fanny Jones. [ am in service with Mrs. Griffiths, at the" Welsh Harp," in this town. I remember fonr men coming to my mistress' house for some newspapers. It was some right last month. I do not remember what night it was it was before I heard that the Goger- ddan keepers had been shot; the four men came in together. They appeared to be country people. The men had two quarts of ale and some spirits they took also one shilling's worth of rum in a bottle with them they remained in the house about half an hour. I heard two of the men ask for news- papers, which I got and gave to the men they were old newspapers, which they wrapped up and put in their pockets. The two men I gave the newspapers to I saw afterwards in the custody of a police con- stable going to gaol. The accused now present is very much like one of the four men I saw at the Welsh Harp," as already stated. The four men left the Welsh Harp together about a quarter past ten o'clock. One of the men appeared older than the others. Jane Griffiths sworn I keep the Welsh Harp" in this town. I heard the evidence given by the last witness, who is my servant. I believe what she said is correct, as far as I remember. I recollect four men from the country coming to my bouse some night last month one of the men was older than the others. Two of the men had newspapers. It was after ten o'clock when the men left my house they had some ale and spirits, and took rum with them. If I was to see the men again I onld not identify them. P. S. Thomas Thomas sworn Yesterday week I heard one of the accused named John Evans, in the presence and hearing of the other persons accused, named David Jones, and John Jones, at the lock-up make the following statement respecting the "Welsh, liarp." The said accused John Evans asked me how he could procure some summonses for his wit- nesses. I asked him what witnesses he required. 'Ie first named Evan Roberts, of the Crugie Arms, Rhydyfelin, that he wanted to summon him. He then told me they had been in different public- iiouses in the town and asked the name of the public-house near the Town-hall. Itoldhimitwas he.Shropshire Arms, kept by one William Sheppard, LOcI that they had been in another house, that he landlady was an Englishwoman, and that she was the widow of Morgan of Bryndu's brother-John Griffiths, the late husband of'Jane Griffiths, was a trother to Morgan Griffiths, Bryndu. I then asked -aid John Evans, whether theprisoner John Jones vas with him at the Welsh Harp," when he replied ie was, and also David Jones. This statement was uade by him voluntarily, without any threat or tromise on my part. The other prisoners were ;resent all the time this conversation took place. Evan Roberts sworn I keep the Crngie Arms uiblie-house, situate at Rhydyfelin. About three veeks ago, early in the morning, four men knocked t my door. I opened the door and four men came fl. The four men who came in were John Evans, lav id Jones, John Jones, and the accused Thomas fones. I believe David Jones is the father of the (id John Jones and Thomas Jones. Three of the icn each carried a gun, and I can't say what the ourth had some of icemen, or one of them, ielivered me the three guns to keep. In the eourse If that day one of the men called upon me for the guns, and took them away.
