On the same evening a shirt was taken from the garden hedge of John Davies, in the parish of Gwernesney, it is supposed, by the same 1n- dividuals. Pritchard saw the men coming from his cottage, when they said they had merely been to the door to ask for lights tor their pipes, but he did not discover his loss until the scamps had got clear off. They were, however, traced through Usk and Pontypool to Abergavenny where one of the men was captured in bod at a lodging :">.oase, together with two women who accompanied him, by Sapt.Llewellin, at an early hour on Monday morning. 'i'he shirt and one: of the handkerchiefs were afterwards found pledged at Pontypool, and the prisoners stand remanded until Friday (this day), when they will be taken before the magistrates at Usk.
