Th eighteen eases to be brought before art, «e cases were then adjourned to the August ASSATJLT AT PEMBROKE-DOCK. • ■^aw^«a«.—Plaintiff is a bookseller at Pem- J broke-dock. Defendant is a farmer, and he was sued for e20 damages for an assault, on the 12tti of March last. Mi Lasoelles appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Williams for the defendant. A jury was sworn. The plaintiff gave evidence at some length. After stating that the figsault was committed at the Burton Brewery public-house, Dimond-street, and that several' persons who witnessed the assault were from home, and could not therefore be produced as witnesses, he pro ceeded to state as follows:-After I had been seated the defendant had some business talk with me. 1 told him if he would come to me the next day I would answer any question he would put to me on the matter, I told him I did not want to speak with him then. After some talk defendant struck me three or four times on the head with his fists. He said he would make me speak. Mr Ackford came between us. When I got up to leave the room, defendant ran to the door and fastened it; aud said he had not done with me, and asked me to strike him. I did not strike him. I Knew batter than to strike him. He is nearly four times the size of me. He then caught hold of the hair of my head, and commenced beating me about the face and head. The door was fastened insjde-thereîs no fastening to the door out- side. I asked defendant if he would let me out. He said he had not given me enough. I went over the other side of the room, when Mr Yerward put up a chair as a barrier between us. I could not get away. He again beat me about the head as before. I got my head and eye bruised. I could not see for three weeks after. 1 still feel the effects of the blows giv"n by the defendant. Defendant told me he had long waited for an opportunity to beat me. He then caught hold of me and tried to force me down, and said he would stave in my ribs. I then made my escape, the door being open. There was no fastening to the door outside. The landlord held the defendant until I passed out. I called at. L)r Gwynne Harries's about five minutes afterwards, but he was not in. I then went to a chemist, who told me to bathe my eye with cold water, which I did. The next day I went to Dr Harries, who was attending me five weeks, and I paid him £ 5 5s. I do not think it was a high price. I was unable to look after the shop owing to my eye being bandaged up. 1 did not keep to my bed. I puicl my father £ 1-2s 6d for keeping the shop My father is a measurer of timber in the dockyard, and gets 3s per day. He was out of the yard four days. My shop was closed tor two days. Mr Williams; You have married lately? Plaintiff: Yes; on the 23rd of April. Mr Williams: Do you know a lady by the name of Mra Briga's? Plaintiff: I do. Her husband ran away from this country. Mr Lascelles: I really object to the turned gentleman going into such matters. 1 beg to remind him that this is not a divorce case. Mr Williams: You know the lady went away and left the property with you? Plaintiff: There was no property left with me bv a lady that ran away. I have property in my possession t which belonged to a gentleman who left the place, but who owed me money. Mr Williams i Was the gentleman who ran away the brother-in-law of the defendant? Plaintiff: He was. Mr Williams; Had any gentleman's creditors applied I to you for the property ? Plaintiff: I decline answering that question. Mr Williams: I insist on your answering the question put to you. Mr Lascelies: I must object to your going from a divorce case to that of a bankruptcy case. In further cross-examination the plaintiff said that during the whole of the time the assault iook place he did not use abusive language. He was near-sighted, but one eye was not weaker than the other. John Ackford and George Thomas were called in corroboration, and then Dr Gwynno Harries gave evi- dence as to the injuries which the plaintiff had re- ceived. The jury gave a verdict for plaintiff, damages £0 and costs.
