GLAMORGANSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. The General Quarter S for this county were held (by adjournment from tl <0 Epiphany Sessions') in the Town-hall. Cardiff, on Monday JdSt, the 21st instant, before Henry Thomas, Esq Chairman, AJ. A. Bruce, Esq., M. P. Traherne, Esq., the Rev. Robert" Knight, Re*. Jas. Evans, Rev. James Coles, Henry Lewi" Esq., Sir George Tyler: K.C.B., J. Bruce Pryce, Esq., Capt tria Warde, and Wbitlock Nicholl, Esq. TUB GRAND JU RY. Mr. John Evans, foreman Mr. John Hibbert J. S. Batchelor — J. B- Hopkins Philip Bird "fob James John Bland R. O. Jenkins — George Coleman — E uward Langley — John Cornish — William Philips — James Coleman — Gforge Roberts Richard Coupland Ge orge Spencer George Emerson Jot-ii Spickett — Thomas Ingleton John Todd Two Grand Jurors were fined a guinea each for non- attendance; and a third, who is, as the Chairman observed, an habitual defaulter," was fined two guineas. The grand jury having been sworn, the Learned Chairman in addressing them said he rejoiced to see so full and so re- spectable an attendance on this, the first instance in this county, of an adjourned quarter sessions for the trial of prisoners im- mediately before the assizes. They were all aware that people could not without some inconvenience leave their homes and their business at this or any other period of the year; hut, at the same time, such was the number of prisoners -although he was happy to say that the ofTences with which they stood charged were mostly inconsiderable-that were it not for the cheerfulness and the alacrity with which grand jurors, generally, attended he (the Chairman) did not see how Her Majesty's Judge would have been able at the ensuing assizes to discharge the important duties which would devolve upon him. He would not have been able, within the time allotted to him, to have tried the prisoners, much less to have devoted any time to those very im- portant civil questions connected with the great interests of the country which are to be brought before him. In the calendar, the Chairman said, he was happy to say he did not find a single case on which it was necessary for him to offer to gentlemen of their experience and discernment a single observation he would, therefore, request that they would be kind enough to proceed with the consideration of cases-to take some short case first, in order that the court might have something to go on with. The Grand Jury then retired. ABERDARE.—Jeremiah Brien, aged 27, labourer, was charged with having stolen, on the 3rd February, two pigs, value £3, of the property of Mr. David Jenkins, his em- ployer.-David Jenkins examined: I am a pig-driver; and the prisoner has been in my employ. I never authorised hira to sell any pigs for me. On the 3rd of February 1 met the prisoner at Cwmbach. I had eleven pigs there, which I told him to take home to Merthyr. In going home he bad no occasion to go through Aberdare. By doing so he went at least half a mile out of his way. In toe evening I found that only nine pigs had arrived at home: two were missing. I went in search of prisoner, but could not find him. I met a policeman on the road to whom I stated the case. I saw the prisoner that night at the police-station. I have since seen the pigs at Aberdare.—Jane, the wife of John Styling, examined She said that on Thursday, the 3rd of February, the prisoner came to her door and asked her if she wanted to buy pigs. She said she did, upon which a conversation ensued, the prisoner stating that he had sold worth hundreds of pounds for his master. Even- tually, witness bought two pigs for £ 2 12s., which sum prisoner received.—P. S. Richard Rees said he arretted prisoner on the day named; and found X2 3s. 54d. on his person. On being told what he was charged with, prisoner said to Rees—" Take care of that money; that is my money. I'll have more money out of Jenkins before I have done with him."—Verdict—Not Guilty. Mr. Benson conducted the prosecution. ABERDARE.-Samuel Needs, aged 31, labourer, was charged with having stolen a half-sovereign, of the property of Michael Spelman, who said that on the 5th February, he was in the Full Moon public-house, Aberdare. The prisoner was there also. Witness took half-a-sovereign and some silver out of a tobacco-box—put the silver back, and left the half-sovereign on the table. The prisoner then snatched it up,and ran away. It was between nine and ten at night. The next morning witness found prisoner at the Bush Inn, and asked him to return the money, upon which prisoner said he had not taken any. He was given into custody.- Mary Harris, servant at the Full Moon public-house, corro- borated the statement made by Spelman.—JennetteEdmond, landlady of the Bush Inn, said that on the night of Satur- day, the 5th of February, the prisoner came to her house at about ten o'clock at niglit-called for a quart of beer-paid 6d. for it-then called for a gallon, and tendered half-a- I sovereign in payment.—Verdict—Guilty.

Attorney for the prosecution, Mr. Pop- kin, Bridgend. MERTHYR TYDVIL.— Thomas Evan James, aged 17, la- bourer, aQd James Breeze, aged 17, labourer, were charged with having stolen a flannel apron, a shawl, and a shirt, of the property of David WilHams.—EHzabeth Williams ex- amined I am the wife of David Williams, residing at Gellyfaelog, near Merthyr. I recollect missing clothes from a line on the night of the 5th of January. I had seen them that evening at about five o'clock at seven I missed them. I saw them the following day with the police. I lost a flannel apron, a shawl, and a shirt. [Clothes pro duced.] These are the clothes.—David Williams examined; I am the husband of last witness. The shawl and other garments which I have seen produced are my property. I do not know the prisoner-, but I saw them walking in a field, near a fence by my house, on the evening of the 5th of January. There is no path through that field.-Mary Harries examined On the evening of the 5th of January I met the prisoner Thomas James, who asked me if I would be so good as to take an apron to pawn. [Apron produced.] This is the apron. I went with it-pawned it, and had a shitting and an ounce of tea for it. I pawned it in Solomon Friedman's shop. I gave the shilling and the tea to Thos. James, who was waiting for me.-Solomon Friedman proved having received the apron, in pledge, from last wit- ness, on the evening of the 5th of January. He subsequently gave it to a policeman.—Sarah Friedman (wife of last wit- ness) said that the prisoner James Breeze pledged a hand- kerchief-the" shawl" referred to in the indictment-for 9d. That shawl witness handed to a policeman.-P.S. Wm. Parsons produced the various articles in question, which he received from Mr. and Mrs. Friedman on the 6th of January. Witness apprehended the prisoners the same day.—Verdict -Guilty. The prisoner James Breeze pleaded guilty to a charge of having been previously convicted of felony. He was sentenced to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for one year. Thomas Evan James was sentenced to be im- prisoned and kept to hard labour for one month. Mr. Conybeare conducted the prosecution. ABERDARE .-—Margaret Davies (who had been out under bail) was charged with having stolen a large lump of coal from the yard of Messrs. Matthew Wayne and Company, at Aberdare.—The evidence was clear and direct, as a man at work in the yard saw her take the coal from a tram. She had been to assist in the yard and on leaving in the evening took the coal home with her.—The prisoner ad- mitted that she had taken the coal, but said that she thought there was no harm in doing so. She received a good char- acter for honesty from two neighboun.- Verdict-Guilty. Sentence-to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for one week, at Cardiff. Mr. Benson conducted the prosecu- tion. DOWLAIs.- Thoma, Morgan (who had been out under bail, and who seemed a man of respectable appearance and prepossessing demeanour), was charged with having stolen seven sovereigns, of the property of David Evans. Mr. Thomas Allen conducted the prosecution attorneys, Messrs. Perkins and James. Mr. Grove defended the pri- soner; attorney, Mr. Smith. David Evans examined: He said be lodged with one Mary Evans; and that be kept his property-hit clothes, money, and books—in a box, which box was placed in his bed-room. That box had two drawers in it. In one drawer he kept his watch and shirts in the other his books. Be had also in the drawer in which he kept his books, a pocket-book, containing seven sovereigns. On the night of Sunday, the 2nd of January, the witness went to his box, and saw that all the property was then safe. He locked the drawer in which the seven sovereigns were, and put the key under his shirts in the other drawer. On the following Friday he went to his box-saw that the key had been taken from under the shirts, and was by the side of the watch. He instantly opened the other drawer, which was locked, and saw that the seven sovereigns had been abstracted. He was induced to suspect the prisoner and his landlady; but ultimately he went in search of the prisoner, whom he met the following day (Saturday) near Hirwain. He spoke to prisoner about the money, and taxed him with the robbery. Prisoner denied it, and freely consented to accompany the prosecutor to the police-station at Dowlais, where he was given into custody. This witness was severely cross- examined by Mr. Grove, but nothing material was elicited. He stated that he had earned the money-that he was a member of a club, from which he had, three months previous to the robbery, been paid the sum of five pounds. Mary Evans examined: I keep the lodging-house at which the prisoner and last witness lodged. On Tuesday, the 5th of January, prisoner told me he was going to leave. He left a trousers, a waistcoat, and a shirt at our house. He paid me four shillings. He asked me if I would change a sovereign; but I could not. He went out, came back, and paid me four shillings. He then left; and on Wednes- day evening he came to our house again. He had permis- sion to sleep at our house that night. On Thursday morn- ing, at half-past eight. I saw the prisoner come down stairs. I had previously heard him with the boxes. David Evans was then at his work; but I did not know that he had money in his box, or else I would have been more attentive. I heard prisoner raise the cover of the box. There are two boxes in the room; one belongs to me the other to David Evans. After he had come down stairs prisoner went out. There was nothing in my box; neither was there anything belonging to prisoner in the room where the boxes were. He left our house at half past nine Thursday morning. My house is always locked at night; and by day too if Igo out. It is not possible for any one to eome to our house when I am in without my knowing it. Prisoner had lodged with me a fortnight and a day. Cross-examined :—I was in the habit of putting prisoner's clothes in the box out of the dust. I never heard David Evans say that either I or the prisoner had stolen the money. P.S. William Parsons examined: I remember the pri- soner being brought to the station house on the morning of Saturday the 8th of January. I told prisoner the charge against him. I found on his person Is. Id.; and a leather strap. I took him to Merthyr; and on our way there he told me that he had only a sovereign and half a sovereign since be had been in Dowlais,-the half-sovereign he had borrowed of Mr. Thomas Stephens, druggist, Merthyr. He repeated it several times. Prisoner was liberated un- der bail after he had been first taken before the magistrates. Cross-examined :—His words were—"It is a pity for a man to be taken up. It is a sovereign and half-a-sovereign I have had since I have been in Dowlais." David Rowlands examined: He proved that subsequent to the loss of the money the prisoner had paid him the sum of 92 2s. 6d. He also gave prisoner a good character for honesty. Edward Edwards, a draper and grocer, also proved that prisoner paid him 8s.—giving a half-sovereign and re- ceiving 2s. in return as change; and Rachael Jones further proved that prisoner paid her 4a. These payments took place on the day the prosecutor missed his money. A witness named Daniel Davies was examined at con- Jidetablt length with reference to ceitaiu proceeding* which had taken place at his (witness's) father-in-law's house between prisoner, his brothers, his uncle, and aunt; after which the prosecutor was sent for. David Evans, the prosecutor, was then recalled. He said that on the Sunday night after he had discovered that his money had been stolen, he was sent for by the prisoner's brother to Daniel Davies's father-in-law's house. Prose- cutor went there received £7 from Morgan Morgan (pri- soner's brother) and then went away. Prisoner was not present at the time. This concluded the case for the crown. Mr. Grove then addressed the jury in prisoner's behalf, contending with much ability that the evidence was quite insufficient to sustain the charge preferred,,—in fact the circumstances of the case tended to negative the presump- tion of the prisoner's guilt. It had been shewn that the prisoner had paid some debts, but was that the conduct of a thief ? Would any man commit an act of infamous dis- honesty in order that he might be enabled to pay a debt. Thieves did not act in that manner. Much stress had been laid upon the fact that prisoner's relatives had paid prose- cutor the sum of f7; but then it was not the prisoner's act, neither was he present when it was done. In their anxiety the prisoner's relatives had acted unwisely, but who in circumstances of unusual difficulty does not act foolishly at some time or other. Upon the whole, the learned coun- sel thought the jury would be of opinion that the prisoner was entitled to an immediate acquittal at their bands. Several respectable men gave prisoner an unexceptionable character for honesty, and good morals generally. His family were also very highly spoken of. The jury without the SLIOHTEST HESITATION ACQUIT- TED the prisoner. BOWRINGTON.—William Roderick, aged 19, pudler, pleaded guilty to the charge of having stolen 84lbs. of iron, value 2s. of the property of the Llynvi Iron Company. Sentence —To be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for fourteen days. MERTHYR.—Rachael Burke, aged 27, widow, was charged with having stolen a sovereign from the person of one Charles Davies; and David Parry, aged 40, woolsorter, was charged with having feloniously aided, abetted, and assisted her in committing the offence.—Charles Davies examined I live at Rhymney. On the 13th of February I was seeking for lodgings in Merthyr, at about eight or nine in the evening. I met the prisoners, and asked David Parry if he could procure lodgings for me. He said I might have lodgings with the female prisoner for that night; but J said I did not want such lodgings as she could give to me." —The witness detailed some further conversation which had taken place between him and the prisoners. Ultimate- ly the female prisoner stole the sovereign from witness's pocket. Witness took hold of her, and endeavoured to make her return the money, upon which she screamed, and the male prisoner came up. He said to witness—" Now you better let her go, or else there will only be more row. Come along with me, and I'll get you lodgings." The wo- man in the meantime escaped and soon afterwards the witness disentangled himself from the male prisoner.—P.S. Benjamin Burrett said that on the 13th of February, at about half past twelve at night, the last witness came to the station house and said he had been robbed of a sover- eign. He described the persons of his assailants, from which description Burrett was enabled to identify the pris- oners, whom he took into custody. When charged with the offence the woman told Burrett that the prosecutor, having given her threepence, said to her—" unless you give me the threepence back I'll charge you with robbing me of a sovereign "—The woman it appeared, is one of an unfor- tunate'' class; but the male prisoner did not seem to be at all a hardened offender—quite the contrary. In his state- ment to the jury he declared that this was the first time he had ever been charged in a court of justice with the com- mission of any offence.—The Chairman in summing up, told the jury that the case rested entirely on the evidence given by the prosecutor and, therefore, if they believed him thev would find the prisoners guilty if they had any fyloubt they would, of course, give the prisoners the benefit of it.—The jury found both prisoners guilty. Sentence— Each to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for six calendar months. Mr. Pulling conducted the prosecution attorney, Mr. Smith. MERTHYR .— Elizabeth Griffiths, aged 20, singlewoman, was charged with having stolen a sovereign from the person of David Davies, who said—" I am a weaver, and live at Carmarthen. On Wednesday night, the 19th of January, I was at Merthyr. On that night I was in the Hibernia beer- house. That house is kept by Mike O'Neal. I had some beer there; and while I was having it the prisoner came and sat by me by the fire. She invited me to her house; and, ultimately, I accompanied her to it, in the Cellars, or China. It was near the big arch. It might be about half- past eleven when I went with her. Two or three men came into the house after I had been there."—Witness then detailed subsequent occurrences, from which it appeared that the prisoner had committed the crime imputed to her, as prosecutor felt her hand in his pocket, soon after which she ran away. Prosecutor gave information to the police, who, from the information given by him, instantly took tpritoner into custody.—P.S. Rees said be took prisoner into custody at a very early hour on Thursday, the 20th of Jan- uary. He found her in her house at Pontstorehouse, or China, and told her that she was charged with having stolen a sovereign from prosecutor. She said—" There is nothing to do." She added on her way to the station-house—" He had no sovereign to lose. He had only 7s. 6J. when he came to Mike O'Neal's and I can bring plenty of witnesses to prove it."—It appeared that prosecutor had drank on that night seven or eight pints of beer, but still knew per- fectly well what he was about.—The Chairman very carefully and clearly summed up the evidence, thejury found the prisoner guilty. Sentence—To be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for three calendar months. Mr. Pulling conducted the prosecution; attorney, Mr. Overton. LLANVABON.—Richard Powell, aged 38, boatman, was charged with having, on the 24th of January last, stolen a chain, the property of Thomas Meredith. The circum- stances of this case were entirely devoid of interest, except to the parties concerned. The jury acquitted the prisoner. Mr. Thomas Allen conducted the prosecution attorney, Mr. H. Williams. CARDIFF.—Wm. Rice, aged 24, mariner, was charged with stealing divers articles of wearing apparel, and eighteen pounds of bacon, of the property of David Griffiths, of Newport, Pembrokeshire, seaman. A full outline of tlte evidence in this case, given before the committing magis- trate, appeared in our last number. The prosecutor had caused his chest of clothes and a bag, also containing clothes, and about 18lbs. of bacon, to be put on board the Osprey steamer at Haverfordwest, intending to go by steamer to Bristol, but was too late. The following week he took care to be in time; but found after the vessel had moved that his bag was missing. He reached Bristol, and the result of his inquiries on board and at Bristol induced him to be- lieve that three seamen, who had been passengers on board the Osprey the previous week, had stolen his bag. However, he gave up all hopes of recovering his property, and took a vessel for Cardiff. After his arrival at Cardiff, he acciden- tally met the prisoner in Lewis-street, and saw that his (prosecutor's) smock frock was worn by prisoner. This circumstance led to the recovery of all the missing property except the bacon. There appeared to be no doubt but that prisoner, or some one with him. had taken the bag and its contents from the Osprey in Bristol; at all events he was in full possession when prosecutor accidentally met him, as in addition to the smock frock worn by him, he had also a pair of stockings on his feet which belonged to the prosecutor. Thejury found the prisoner guilty. —It then transpired that Superintendent Stockdale, having been told by prisoner that he had taken prosecutor's bag from the Osprey in mistake, and had left his own bag there, had written to the mate of the steamer, and had, in confirmation of prisoner's statement, received a bag, which, it was supposed by the mate, some one—and probably the prisoner-had inad- vertentlv left on board.—Sentence—To be imprisoned and kept to' hard labour for one week. Mr. Thomas Allen conducted the prosecution; attorney, Mr. Thos. Evans. Evan Davies and Thomas Reeves, boatmen, two youths, were charged with stealing Ave hundred pounds weight of coal, of the property of Mr. Matthew Wayne and others; and Elisabeth Leonard, a middle-aged woman of respectable appearance, was charged with having feloniously received the coal, well knowing it to have been stolen. Mr. Conybeare conducted the prosecution; attorneys, Messrs. Perkins and James. Mr. Grove defended the prisoner. It was proved that the prisoner, Evan Davies, had gone with a barrow to a boat containing coal, had filled the barrow with coal from the barge, and had then taken it to Elizabeth Leonard's house, where he was assisted by Thos. Reeves in taking the coal in j and it was further proved that the said barge and coal were the property of Mr. Matthew Wayne and Company. The two male prisoners were in charge of the boat.—The statements made by the prisoners before the committing magistrates were put in and read. They had avowed that they (prisoners) were together taking the coal. Mr. Grove made an able speech In reply to the charge; and then called several respectable persons who gave Mrs. Leonard an excellent character. The male prisoners were also favourably spoken of. The jury found all the prisoners guilty. Evan Davies and Thomas Reeves were severally sentenced to be im- prisoned and kept to hard labour for one calendar month and Elizabeth Leonard was sentenced to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for two calendar months. MERTHTR TYDVIL.—Thomas Adams, aged 24, labourer, and William Walker, aged 21, labourer, were charged with having stolen a great coat and other articles, of the property of Sarah Williams; and Jane Warn, aged 21 (wife of John), was charged with having stolen one cloak, two cloth coats, and one handkerchief, of the property of the same Sarah Williams. The evidence in this case, although circum- stantial, was conclusive. A bundle, containing the articles above enumerated, was placed in the bar of the Crown Inn, Mertbyr, on the evening of the 8th of January. The pri- soners were seen in the Crown; and shortly after they had left the handle was missed. Suspicion instantly fell upon them they were pursued, and eventually taken into custody after some resistance and an attempt to escape on their parts. The bundle was found with them. The jury re- turned a verdict of Guilty against all the prisoners.—A former conviction was then proved against the prisoner Adams, who was sentenced to be transported for seven years. The prisoners Walker and Warn were severally sentenced to be imprisoned and kept to bard labour for one month. Mr. Grove conducted the prosecution; attorney, Mr. Smith. John Williams, late of Llangonoyd, was charged with hav- ing stolen a shirt and a tobacco box, the property of Thomas Morgan. Mr. Grove conducted the prosecution attorney, Mr. Popkin, Bridgend. Verdict—Guilty. Sentence—To be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for one calendar month. CARDIFF. —'Ann Morgan, aged 28 (the wife of John), was charged with having stolen a chart, of the property of Mr. William Bird. Mr. Conybeare conducted the prosecution; attorney, Mr. Thomas Evans.—Mr. James Morgan, painter and glazier, said that on the 8tb of February he was in Mr. Nell's spirit shop, and saw the prisoner come in: she offered a chart for sale, saying it was the last she had left ont of four hundred. She said that she was obliged to sell them, as her husband had left her. She said her husband was a stationer, and that.she had brought the chart from Birming- ham. She offered it for Is. 6d. [Chart produced.] Witness believed this is the chart. There is a ticket on one end of it with Mr. Bird's name and the price; upon observing which, witness stepped over to Mr. Bird's house, and informed him of the circumstance.—Mr. William Bird, having examined the chart, said it had once been his pioperty. He had not missed it. It was not an article that he should readily miss. He had no recollection of having sold it to any one. His charts were kept in a rack near the door; and the chart pro- duced was one of twelve which he had only recently reo ceived.-P.C. J^mes Perry, who produced the chart, said that when he took the prisoner into custody she had stated to him that she bad bought it casually in the street for three-pence. The jury acquitted the prisoner, as they were not satisfied that the chart was the property of Mr. Bird: he might have sold it. JaM Lock, aged 22, singlewoman, pleaded guilty to the charge of having stolen two lardt and a half of calico, one pair of ear-rings, and numerous other articles, of the pro- perty of Mr. Edward Jones, Bute-street, Cardiff; and was sentenced to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for fourteen days. Mr. William Hanry Smith conducted the prosecution attorney Mr. Thomas Evans. Mary Sharmer, aged 18, singlewoman, who was charged with having 8tolen, ou the 218t of January, at the parish of Pendoylan, a sovereign of the property of Mr. Charles Stokes, and who was admitted to bail on the 27th of Janu- ary, did not appear when called, and a bench warrant was issued for her apprehension. The recognizances of the person who became a surety for her appearance were estreated. The bills against Jane Bennett, late housekeeper at Coy- trahene, and Mary Bennett of Gellygare, were ignored by the grand jury. Charles Walters, aged 20, miner, pleaded guilty to charges contained in two indictments—of having stolen a silver watch and divers other articles from the <1 welling house of Georgh Smith, at l\1erthyr. He was sentenced to be im- prisoned and kept to bard labour for six calendar months- three months for each indictment. Attorneys for the pro- secution, Messrs. Perkins and James. Charles Yeates, aged 22, labourer, and John Williams, aged 24, labourer, pleaded guilty to the charge of stealing two loaves of bread, value sixpence, of the property of Mrs. Rachael Harries, Sentence—Each to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for one calendar month. Thomas Browne, aged 21. labourer, pleaded guilty to the charge of having stolen a shovel, the property of Mr. Griffith Thomas, Newbridge. Sentence—To be imprisoned and kept to hard labour (or one calendar month. Robert Flucker, aged 20, mariner, pleaded guilty to the charge of stealing one hundred pounds of rope, value 3*. of the property of Mr. Hugh Francis Cadell, and others. It was intimated to the court that the prisoner was de- fended, upon which the prisoner was arraigned II second time. and a second time, in a firm tone, pleaded" guilty." Mr. Morgan, who had been instructed bJ Mr. R. 1.1. Reece to defend the prisoner, applied to the court for per- mission to have the plea withdrawn, inasmuch as the prisoner did not know that he was to be defended. To this application, the learned Chairman replied—"The prisoner may not have known that he was to be defended; but it is very evident that he knew whether he was guilty or not. He was asked twice, and each time pleaded guilty. I cannot, therefore, allow him to withdraw his plea."—The particulars of this case were fully given in our last number. The prisoner, who received a good character from Mr. Cadell, was sentenced to be imprisoned and kept to hard lahour for one calendar month. Attorney for tl1e prosecu- tion, Mr, Thomas Evans.
