We have been favoured by J. _A. P. L. Philipps, Esq., i of Dale Castle, with the following analysis by Professor Herapath, of Bristol, of a sample of water from a well recently dug on Mr Philipps's estate at Dale :— 4 Bristol Laboratory, June 6th, 1863. SIIl,-The sample of water sent me I find contained the following Salts in an Imperial gallon reckoned in grains and decimal parts;- Nitrate of Magnesia 0 64 Chloride of Manganese 256 Chloride of Sodium 7'48 Sulphate of Soda 5*00 Carbonate of Iron 3'20 Carbonate of illanganese 5'84 Carbonate of Lime. 2'00 Sulphate of Lime 1*12 Silica 0'80 Total grains 28'64 It will be seen that this is strongly a chalybeate water, with 2 grains of carbonate of iron in a gallon. There is a striking peculiarity in it, as it contains so much man- ganese, the effects of which upon patients I am not ac- quainted with. I remain, yours respectfully, WiLMAM HERAPATH, SEN, F.C.S, &C. 4 Professor of Chemistry.' HAVERFORDWEST PETTY SESSIONS. I These Sessions were held at the Shire Hall, on Wed- nesday, before the Mayor, H. P. Goode, Esq., and the Rev. James Philipps. CHARGE OF ASSAULT. William Jenkins, cattle dealer, was charged with as- saulting John Daniel, of Cartlett, on the 9th inst. The defendant denied the charge. The complainant deposed: This man did not assault me; but his brother did. On Saturday I was at the Railway Station looking for work, when this man swore he would be my death. The Clerk: You have summoned William Jenkins for assaulting you? Complainant: He did not strike me: his brother Benjamin struck me. The Clerk You have got the wrong bull by the horns. (Laughter.) You can't punish this man because his brother beat you. Complainant: I had a summons for both. The Clerk: My clerk says that you did not. Complainant: I am in danger of my life from this man he swore he would be my death. The Clerk: What for? Complainant: I don't know. The Clerk: You don't know; the Bench will hardly believe that Jenkins threatened you without some pre- vious quarrel or something of that kind. Had there been a row between you;, Complainant: I don't know what it was for: he never told me. The Clerk: Had you quarrelled at all ? Complainant: I never gave him any reason. The Clerk: I am not asking whether you gave him any reason; what did he tell you was the reason for the threat? Complainant: I don't know. The Rev. J. Philipps: Do you mean to say that there was no reason for the row between you ? Complainant: I never did anything to the man. The Rev. J. Philipps: You told me the reason when you asked me for a summons against the man-l don't wish to mention it, as you will not do so,—and now you declare on your oath that you don't know of any reason for his threatening you ? Complainant: I did nothing to him. The Clerk: There is no case against William Jenkins; J am told there were braises on you when you applied for the summons; if you desire to have a summons against the brother for beating you, you can have one. There is no case against this man, and it must be dis- missed. The Mayor: (addressing defendant)): You must not threaten the complainant: you had better keep out of his way. Defendant: 1 should like you to tell the complainant to keep out of my way: he is always about in the fairs where I am, and will thrust himself into bouses when I am buying oattle I don't want him to be near me: he is not a very respectable character. The case was then dismissed. STEAiiING COATSi John Trusgell and William Thompson, tramps, were charged with stealing two coats of the value of 18s. 6d., the property of Mr Campbell, draper, of the Old Bridge. Thomas Phillips, a labourer, residing at the Old Bridge deposed that on the afternoon of Tuesday, he saw the prisoners take away two coats, which were suspended at the door of the prosecutor. William Campbell, son of the prosecutor, said that in consequence of what was told him by the last witness, he went after the prisoners, and took from them two coats, which be identified as his father's property. The prisoners pleaded guilty, and stated that they were driven to the offence through want. The Bench ordered them to be imprisoned in the House of Correction for one month. VAGRANCY. A tramp, named Jordan, was brought up in the custody of the police, charged with begging in High-street. The prisoner said that he was a labourer, and a native of Winter jerg, in Gloucestershire. He had come to the county in search of work. Superintendent Cecil stated that the prisoner was a pro- fessional beggar, and that one of his companions was in Court waiting the result of the case. Their Worships ordered him to be imprisoned for one week with hard labour. CHARGE OF STEALING SALT. William James, captain of the smack 'Amity,' of Mil- ford, was charged with stealing a quantity of salt, the property of Mr J. B. Henley, of Quay-street, in this .own. I Mr W. John, solicitor, of Haverfordwest, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr Dunn, of Pembroke, for the accused. Mr W. John having briefly stated the case, called William Griffiths, who deposed: I was up to a short time ago mate of the smack 'Amity,' of which the accused is master. I live at Milford. 1 left the vessel on the 6th inst. I came to Haverfordwest from Gloucester in her with a cargo consisting of salt, iron, and bricks. The salt was consigned to Mr Henley. The salt was taken on shore to Mr Henley's stores: all was dis- charged except seven bars. The captain told me the evening we came to Ship-dock, in the Haverfordwest river, to keep some salt, and I had three bars from the bulk, and put them in the forecastle. The captain was away when I took them, but when he returned from town, I told him what I had done. He told me to keep more on the next day (Friday), and I put four others away in the forecastle. The four bars were placed on the floor in the forecastle, and apiece of tarpaulin placed over them. I don't know why I put the tarpaulin over them. The captain did not tell me to do so. The shore-men entered the hold through the forecastle, and I put the tarpaulin over the salt to hide it from them. The captain told me to place the salt in a spare bunk, but a sail was there, and I could not do so. There were no more than four bars taken to my knowledge: I can't tell the value of the bars.—[It was here stated that the.yalue of the salt was 4s. 6d.]—I left the ship on a Saturday about half-past five in the afternoon. The captain paid me off. There had been some unpleasantness between me and the captain on two occasions, but there was none when be paid me off. Cross-examined: There Was no one present when the captain gave me the orders to put away some salt. The stevedore at Gloucester gave the captain one bar of salt, which was put in the hold with the cargo. I never told John Brown, a sailor on board the ship, to go into the hold during the absence of the captain, and take some salt for me. I don't remember Brown saying 'You had better not do it.' I did not tell Brown that he need not be afraid as I had done the same thing before when I was master of a ship. I have been master of a smack, and I then had three bars of Salt given me. I was discharged on Saturday, the captain paid me when I gave my bill in. I was in a public-house that evening with Brown, and bad two glasses of ale a piece. Brown said that the captain had done me a dirty-trick, arid I replied 4 Never mind: I don't care about it,' I said I could do him harm if I liked, but that did not wish to do so. Re-examined Brown went into the hold, and handed up to me four bars of salt. Brown asked what the Captain was going to do with the salt: and I said that I did not know. The three bars were handed up by a boy named William James. The captain was in the habit of going into the foar-eastie. By the Bench: There was a bag or piece of canvass over the three bars of salt: I did not cover them. The salt could be seen by anybody. The shoremen, who went in and out, could see the seven bars. Mr Superintendent Cecil deposed to searching the vessel and finding nine whole bars and two pieces of salt in the forecastle. The weight of it was 4 cwt and 5 lbs. The captain gave him full permission to examine the ship. This concluded the case for the prosecution. For the defence. Mr Dunn called John Brown, who deposed: I atn a sailor on board the 4 Amity.' The piece of salt given, the Captain at Glpu- cester, was handed to me, and I put it in the hold. We arrived at Haverfordwest on Wednesday evening. I took the captain's piece of salt out of the hold and put it in the forecastle. While the captain was absent on shore, on Friday, the mate told me to go down to the hold, and bring him up some salt. I said: I William, we had better leave it alone: we shall be caught or else some one will tell on us.' He said 'Goon: we shall not be caught: nobody knows of it: the salt will not be weizhed out.- I went down to the hold, and handed up three bars. I told him: We had better leave it alone.' He said 'Go on till I tell you to stophe also said that he had been captain of a vessel, and had put salt away himself, and had not been caught. I handed up about eleven bars. He told me that he was going to cut three pieces of salt, and carry them home. On Saturday, I heard the Captain ask the mate if all the salt was out or the ship, and he said that it was. The captain had not been in the forecastle between the placing of the salt there and his asking the mate if all of it was discharged. 1 heard the captain tell the mate to make out his bill. I was at the Three Crowns Inn with the mate he said he would serve the b-- a trick before he was much older. I asked him what he was going to do, when he said, 4 Never mind, leave that to me.' The captain did not know that the salt was in the forecastle. I am obliged to obey the mate's orders when the captain is not on board. Cross-examined: I thought he was doing wrong, and that I did wrong to assist him, but I did not tell the captain what had been done. Mr John Rowe, of Pembroke-dock, owner of the 'Amity,' gave the accused an excellent character, and stated that he had been in his employ between 6 and 7 years. This concluded the case for the accused. The Bench said that the charge had not been made out to their satisfaction, and dismissed the case. ROOSE PETTY SESSIONS. These sessions were held at the Shire Hall on Saturday, before the Rev. Thomas WatM, Rev. P. Phelps, O. E. Davies, Esq., T. J. Roberts, Esq., A. B. Starbuck, Esq., and J. P. Jones, Esq. BREACH OF THE PEACE. John Jones, a sailor, belonging to Her Majesty's ship Blenheim, was summoned for threatening a breach of the peace towards James Brown, of Llanstadwell. The Bench, after hearing the evidence of the com- plainant, dismissed the charge. CHARGE OF STEALING A GRATE AND FLOORING BOARDS. Benjamin Morgan, a builder, residing at Neyland, was charged with stealing a fire grate and a quantity of floor- ing boards, the property of David Davies, of the same place. Mr John appeared for the prosecution. Several wit- 1 nesses were examined on both sides. The Bench com- mitted the accused for trial, bail being accepted for his appearance, himself in F.50, and two sureties of X25 each. CHARGE OF ASSAULT. Esther Jame*, of Hubberaton, was charged with assault- ing Sarah John, of the same place. This ease had been adjourned from the previous sessions for the production of additional evidence. Benjamin Williams deposed that be saw the defendant strike complainant several times. Margaret Evans (who had sworn at the first hearing that she saw no blows struck by either party) was present during the whole time the assault was committed. She came out to the door as he (witness) was passing. Elizabeth James also deposed to the witness Evans being present:when the assault took place. The Bench fined the defendant half a crpwn and costs, amounting altogether to £1 7& lid. Their Worships observed that a great deal of the costs were incurred in consequence of tue witness, Mapgaret Evans, not having spoken the truth: instead or assisting the defendant by withholding the truth, she had caused her an expense of about fourteen, shillings., Her conduct was very dis- creditable, and the Bench would consider whether they should take any steps to punish her. The defendant was allowed a fortnight to pay the fine and costs. CHAK-GE OF WILFEX DAMAGE. Thomas John and Henry Greenish, two boys, were charged by the Rev, O. Leach, of Hubberaton, with wil- ful damage to a hedge. The complainant deposed that on Saturday last be saw a nufnber of children on his hedge. He saw the accused there, and on asking John what business be bad on his hedge, he said that he was not there. The hedge had been much damaged in consequence of the children get- ting upon it, and it was now in such a state that he believed it would cost him -02-to repair it. Mrs Greenish admitted that her son was there, and stated that she had sent to Mr Leach's tenant to inquire what damage had been done, and was told that no damage had occurred. Mr Leach said that he did not bring the boys before the Bench to be punished: his object was to stop the injury to his property; he had spoken to the children again and again, but it had been ot no avail. In reply to Mrs Greenish, Mr Leach; stated that the property was held by the present tenant on lease for a term of years, and that the hedges were to be repaired by the tenant. Mrs Greenish submitted that Mr Leach was not the person who should have complained of the damage to the hedge, as the tenant held the land on lease for a term, and had to repair the hedges. Mr Leach said he believed that he should have to repair the hedge; but if he were not the person that should do the repairs, it would not help Mrs Greenish's case, as the tenant might have laid the information. Mrs Greenish said that the tenant had stated that no damage had been done. Mr Leach observed that he did not wish, any punish- ment to be inflicted on the boys: all he desired was a promise that they would not go upon the hedge. The Bench asked whether the accused would promise not to offend again ? The mother of the boy, John, said she would keep her son from the hedge in future. Mrs Greenish said that her son had been brought there improperly by Mr Leach, and asked that expenses should be attowed for her attendance to answer Mr Leach's complaint. The Clerk said that the case had gone off on a technical point, but Mrs Greenish had admitted that her son was there, and she ought not to encourage him to do as he had done. Mrs Greenish replied that she did not encourage her son togo to the hedgo; but if any damage had been done, Mr Leach was not the person who should have brought him before tha-Court. If au adjournment were granted, it could be proved that no .damage was done. The Bench declined to adjourn the case, and dismissed the summons. CHARGE OF STEALtBG. — James Barnett, a sailor, was charged with stealing 16s. 4 £ d„ the property of Gilbert Brown, and a pair of boots, the property of Ann Harries. The prisoner admitted the charge. P.'C, Beynon deposed' that, when he apprehended the prisoner, he stated, after receiving the usual caution, that he did take the property. Their Worships ordered him to be imprisoned in the House of Correction for one Calendar month with hard labour.
