INFRACTION OF CATTLE ORDERS.—Edward Powell, farmer, Llandenny, was charged with moving cattle along the turnpike road, near Llandenny, between sunset of Wednesday, the 27th of June, and sunrise of Thursday, June 28th. Fined 10s. and costs.- William Lewis, jun., butcher, Abergavenny, was also charged with infringing the orders. P.C. 72 deposed to having seen two boys driving two calves, belonging to defendant, along Monk- street, on the 21st of June; when asked for the license the boys produced one for store stock, which they said Mr. Walter Watkins (of whom Mr. Lewis bought the cattle) had furnished them with. It appeared that it was the duty of the seller, and in this instance part of the bargain, to obtain a license for the removal of the cattle; and it seemed Mr. Watkins had not given the boys who drove the calves the proper license. The Bench therefore dis- missed the summons. Walter Walhins (the farmer above referred to), who did not appear, was charged, on the information of P.C. Hopkins, with moving cattle without a license. Having proved the service of the sum- mons on Monday, July 9th, the officer stated that he met defendant's servant driving a cow and calf on the Aberga- vonny-road, near Llanarth; he demanded his license, and the man produced a fourteen days' license, dated June 18th, and signed by Mr. Henry Gosling, a Monmouth borough magistrate; witness told the man that the license had expired, and that he was to call his master's a!tention to it when he got home. Defendant was fined in the miti- gated penalty of 5s. and costs.—The same defendant was also charged with allowing cattle to be removed with a wrong license. P.C. 72 deposed to finding two boys, as before stated, driving two calves along Monk-street, Aber- gavenny, on the 21st of June, having instead of a license for fat stock one for store cattle. Defendant was fined 5s. and costs in this case also. A BAD HUSBAND.—Michael Murphy was charged by Mr. Lewis, relieving officer, with allowing his wite and family to become chllrg-eable to the parish. It was stated in evidence that defendant was addicted to drink, and neglected his family very much. Mr. Lewis had relieved the wife previously, to the amount of 4s. The prisoner was committed to the House of Correction for one month with hard labour. DRUNK AND RIOTOUS.—John Boyce, labourer, was charged with this pffence, P. C. Hopkins prove 0 finding defendant at a bcerhouse at Lanvihangel-mgh-Usk; he wished to fight, and witness could hardly get him away.
