LOCAL- PETTY SESSIONS, ABERYSTWYTH. Tuesday, February 18th, 1868. Before Richard Roberts, Esq., mayor, and John Davies, Esq. LARCENY. Edward Owens, sworn: Witness resides at Tal-y- bont, in this county. On Friday last witness pur- chased from the prisoner, Robert IIowolJs, a carriage cushion, similar to the one now produced (cushion produced), at the Lion yard, and paid him sixpence for it. The prisoner in a short time afterwards brought it down to the Talbot yard, and placed it in the market-cart I had on that day; and in a short time afterwards police constable Evans came and took it away. P. C. David Evans, sworn: In consequence of in- formation received, witness went to the Talbot Hotel yard, and took from the market-cart of the last witness the cushioa now produced, and afterwards went to look for prisoner, but found he had ab- sconded. Arrested him on Sunday at Berth. David Davies, head ostler at the Lion Hotel, identified the cushion as the property of Mrs Barlow, the proprietress of the Lion Hotel. It was worth about 2s. Cd. The prisoner elected to have the case disposed of by the magistrates. The defendant received a good character from those present, who knew him. The prisoner was sentenced to 14 days imprison- ment in Cardigan gaol. A DOMESTIC SQUABBLE. Charlotte Hodman, sworn: On Thursday evening last, the defendant, —— Jones, who lives in the same house, came down stairs, and threatened to rip her." On Friday morning, the defendant threatened to drown the witness's child, a little boy; and on witness expostulating with her, she struck the witness (who had a child in her arms) to the ground; and scratched her, and otherwise ill-treated her. The whole dispute arose about a cask which bad been used as a dirty water cask. The defendant said that the cask was used to hold the water for drinking purposes, and she was so annoyed at seeing the water dirtied when she wanted to make tea that she vowed she would drown the complainant if she caught her. Instead of the defendant assaulting the complainant, on the con- trary, the latter assaulted violently the former, who was as quiet as a lamb.. The complainant exhibited a handful of hair which she asserted the defendant had pulled from her head. Dismissed with a caution and severe reprimand.
