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.

NARBERTH. NARBERTH COUNTY COURT. [BKFOKF, H. It BAGSHAWE, ESQ., Q.C., JUDGE.] The monthly sitting of this Court was held on Monday, the 8th inst. There were about 100 cases entered for hearing: the following are the only ones of any public interest. Tliom ts Cole v. J. M. Sutton -~>Tbis plaint was entered and came on for hearing before His Honor at the last sitting of the Court, but at defendant's request it was then adjourned on payment of costs. The action was brought to recover the sum of X27 10s, balance due for repairs dune to defendant's house at his request. Mr Lasceiles, instructed by Mr A. H. Lascelies, appeared far the plaintiff; and Mr B. T. Williams appeared for the defendant. The defendant admitted the debt, and His Honor ordered it to be paid, together with costs, in a week. Margaret Davies v. The Rev. Evan Rowlands, Llwyn- brain Cimc.—Thit was an action brought to recover the sum of ;Ct 10s lOd, balance due for wages. Mr Lascelies, instructed by Mr A. H. Lascelles, appeared for the plaintiff; and the defendant, appeared in person. It appeared that the plaintiff was hired as a domestic servant for twelvemonths, which commenced in October last. After she had been in his service for about two months, she complained of his ill-treatment to her by giving her more work than she was able to perform. After she had hired and entered upon her service, instead giving her more work than she was able to perform. After she had hired and entered upon her service, instead of her serving him as it was agreed, he employed her to clean and feed his horse, and also to clean the stable. She had also to feed his pigs and clean the stye, to go to the wood for sticks to light the oven, to milk the cow and feed her, and other out-door work, beside in-doors, such as to cook, &c, &o. About Christmas she gave a month's notice of her intention to leave, but when the month had expired he would not let her go, saying that her being hired for twelve months, prevented her leaving then. In the month of May, while milking, she was kicked by delendant's cow in the chest, which g:tve her much pain at that time, but, growing worse, she was obliged to have medical advice. Defendant then gave her a shilling to go to St. Clears to his doctor (Mr Howells) who said that there might have been a rib broken, but he could not tell, so he gave her a box of pills for her chest, and told her that the pills would soon make her better. She then went back and remained in defendant's service a few days, but being unable to do any kind of work she was obliged to go home to her unole's (after first having had defendant's permission) who resided within a few miles of Lwynbrain (defendant's residence), who took her to Dr. Evans, of Narberth, who found her in a very painful state, but under his treatment she got better at the end of about three weeks, when she offered her services to defendant, who refused to take her back. In answer to a question put by Mr Lascelles, defendant said that she went away without his permission, and he (defendant) then called several witnesses to prove other- wise, but on being examined they said that she (plaintiff) did ask defendant one evening to go home, but he told her to wait till the following morning, and then she should go, which she did. Plaintiff's witnesses then gave their evidence, which proved that she did not leave without his permission, and that when she got well she offered her services haok, but he refused to take her back. His Honour, in giving judgment, said that by th. jvidence it was clear that defendant did give plaintiff peru,is>ion to leave, and that she offered her services back when she got well enough, and therefore be woulc ;i\'e judgment for plaintifl, and ordered the debt anti :osts to he paid in a week. Defendant said he should make an appeal. John Morris v. Thomas Eynon -This action was brought to recover the sum of £ fj 2s 6d, for money dtu for a pig and for cash lent. Mr B.T. Williams, instructed by Mr T. Lewis, appeared for the plaintiff; and 1111 Lascelies, instructed by Mr A. H. Lascelies, for the defendant. Tiie defendant admitted that the money for the pig was due, and was ready to pay it then, but the Couri ordered it to be paid in two months. The defendant denied that he borrowed the cash of plaintiff. The plaintiff, en being examined, said that defendant came to him and borrowed the money about three years seo. His Honor, after hearing the evidence on both sides, gave judgment, for the plaintiff for £4 12s 6d and a non- suit as to £ 1 10s. Edward Phillips v. William Sheldon.—This was an action brought to recover JE4. damages alleged to be due for an assault. The plaintiff is a farmer, residing at Mabe'a Mill, and defendant is a shoemaker, residing at Narberth. The Plaintiff, on being examined, said that he was at the Commercial Inn, Narberth, on iho 4th of last June, and had been there some time when defendant came in and struck him on the head with his fist, which caused it to bleed, and then took him by the collar and pulled him from the chair to the ground. Mr E :an Ptiillips was then called on, who said I was at the Commercial Inn on the 4th of June last. Plaintiff was there. After he had been there for about half an hour, defendant came in and sat down for about five minutes, when he got up and pulled piaintiff down to the ground by the collar of his "coat: ¡lid not see him strike him at all: it was about five o'clock in the evening. Defendant then stated, in aaswer to questions put to him: I did not strike plaintiff at all: we were both drunk, and he fell tiowri off his chair and cut his face. Ho called me all the snobs alive: and called me nn old twice. Then turning round to plaintiff, ha said 'You are a blackguard, Phillips: you offered to make it up the next day it I had given you a pint of beer.' His Honor stated that by the svideuce it did not prove that defendant, struck plaintiff, and therefore he cou d not claim (lamages. The case was then withdrawn on defendant paying the costs. |

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not consider ourselvesresponsible for the opinions and sentiments of our Correspondents Sm,—Permit me through your widely circulated paper to correct an impression, that some of the landed proprietors are under, which I gather from some letters I have received, namely, 'I am no fisherman and others I have no land on the river side, therefore, take no interest in the matter.'—The preservation of salmon is a question of general wealth to the Country and good for the people, therefore all should take an interest whether they be disciples of Isaac Walton or owners of land. But a word about what can be done some years ago associations were formed on the Eden (I think there are four there now) and landed proprietors gave up their lands on the river side, licenses were taken out to fish and watchers put on &o. The new Fishery Act also came to their assistance and the commissioners ordered the removal of a fixed engine at or near Sol way Frith. The result of the preservation is, that last year the increase of salmon was EO great, that the inhabitants of a densely populated manufactoring town such as Car- lisle now is, were offered salmon at 6d per lb. on the market. Look again at the progress on the Wye ? At first the fishermen at its mouth set their faces against all preservation, now they advocate it and a grand harvest they have made this year. There is a large annual subscription to preserve the Wye and some wealthy proprietors give their j690 per annum the preservation has increased salmon to that extent that Mr Buckland was allowed to take spawn out of that river to send to Australia, and fish weighing 201b have been killed as high up as Rhajader. Consider also the tons weight of salmon that pass through our Conntry to the metropolis and: other large towns from Ireland the Laune alone has produced from 300 to 1,300 fish per day during the netting season, all from preservation. I do not for one moment compare Eden, Wye, or Laune with the Cled- dau, but it is a fact that a quantity of salmon frequent the shores of Milford Haven, and I maintain, that if every facility wery afforded them to ascend and breed in our rivers and landed proprietors came forward to pro- tect them and their numerous offspring, in a few years both Eastern and Western Cleddau would be as produc- tive (in comparison) as the three larger rivers I have named. I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant, JOHN STOKES. Cuffern House, July 8th 1867.
THREATENING LETTER TO A RAILWAY COMPANY.— There has just been received by Mr Blackmore, secretary of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company,a letter signed 'XXX,' certifying that unless they drop the fares for return tickets on the Preston and Wyre Railway some of the trains will be dropped down some of the embankments, so as to bring the company to a proper understanding. The writer asserts that this can be done very easily, as there is a quantity of working men forming a union resembling the trades union and as unions are also being formed in the Garstaug and Ley- land districts, all of which are to be amalgamated, for the purpose of amply paying persons for every outrage they commit. A series of questions are then asked and answered, with the object of show- ing that it is impossible for the working men to pay present prices of railway fares; that the company does not receive as much money now as it did be- fore the fares were raised that it would be more beneficial to the company to drop the fares than to have some of the excursion trains run down the embankments, and be called upon to pay a few thousand pounds damages and that working men are willing to pay a reasonable fare, but that they will not be trampled underfoot in this matter.- Sheffield Telegraph.
FATAL BOILER EXPLOSION. A hoiler explosion of terrffiio violence took place on Thursday morning at the extensive works of Messrs J. N'ussey and Co, coating manufacturers, Carlinghow, tfai'.ey. The boiler-house contained three boilers, the one which burst being oldest. These occupied a position immediately adjoining the large mill, and was, like the ■est, surrounded by buildings. The amount of machinery squired the services of two engines, and these were located quite near the boilers. AT eight o'clock the, en- gines stopped for breakfast, and fortunately almost all the workpeople had left the premises, the morning being fine. Such as had brought their meals with them had been tempted to go out into the adjacent fields during the spare half hour. George Wilkinson, one of the firemen, who lives not more than thirty yards from the scene of the disaster, was going towards the boilers, when, to his surprise and horror, he found one ef them coming towards him. he stepped buck into the doorway, and witnessed a sight which bOfl) great resemblance to a fearful eruption. The locality was thrown into tempo- rary darknes by clouds of steam and dust, and masonry and machinery, together with pieces of brick, were scattered about in all directions, inflicting injury to life and ruin to property. The boiler on exploding was literally torn into two pieces near the fore end. and when dislodged from its bed it seems to have' kicked' at tha rear, and in doing so it ripped up the foundations at the centre of the mill, thereby causing a sap in the fabric of a width of at least two windows. The rent extends from top to bottom, and the flooring was parted at the same time, the result, being that portions of machinery bans: in indescribable confusion from each storey. Another builrtintt, four storeys in height and twenty yards in length, wa« blown clean away, along with its valuable contents. The buriing shed was wholly destroyed, and the smith's shop partially so. Tere were five women in the former plllc", and three of them were severely injured by the wreckage which fell upon them. A num- ber of men and youths in the latter place effected their escape by rushing through a window, and then set to work to extricate the bodies of the females who had been working above them. Eliza Priestly, a little girl eight years of age, who had gone to the mill with her father'a breakfast, was so fearfully injured that she died very shortly afterwards. Harriet Smith, 21, and Maria Paine, 25 and a youth nrlmed Robert Butter worth, were severely scalded and bruised. It is feared more bodies will be found as soon as t:,8 rubbish can be removed. The boiler which has been the cause of so much mischief was set about eighteen years ago, and preparations were being made for its removal. The new boiier by which it was to have been superseded has been in the mitt-yard ever since last Christmas The lo«s sustained by the firm is roughly es-timatod at trom £-1; 00 to £DO()O, About.280 hands wili be thrown out of employment by reason of the sad occurrence. Nothing is yet known as to the cause of the explosion, but the habit of getting up steam during mealtimes has become very common, and it is supposed that something of the kind was done that morning. — WIFE MURDER AT DONCASTER.—A barge owner named Slack, resided with his wife at Doncaster. His wife, who is described as a remarkably fi;1C and good- looking woman, ab'ut 25 years of age, had latterly be- come addicted to drinking, which led to much domestic unhappiness. As a means of indulging her propensity she frequently pawned her own and her husband's clothinsr, almost everything portable having disappeared from the house. It is said that this led tho husband to drink also, and while intoxicated the'y frequently quar- relled. On Thursday evening they were alone in the house, having no children, and whether they then onar* relied or not is unknown. Screams were heard by the neigh bours, and presently Mrs Slack was seen to run across the yard with a frightful gash in her throat, from which the blood was pouring. The husband was found sitting on a sofa hacking at his own throat. The knife was wrenched from him by a neighbour, who held him till the police arrived, and he was taken into custody. He was seen to be intoxicated as be went home shortly before the shocking occurrence. 011 being accused of the crime he said that it was a bad job, and when told that she was dead he b4irit into tears. He is in custody until an inquest is held on the deceased woman. THE SOLDIER'S PAY.—There is great joy in Aldershott and all over the world, no doubt, as Sir John Pakington's memorandum circulates from station to station con- cerning the accumulated twopences which will be poured into the lap of the soldiers of the Queen. It will give many a man a chance of wiping off arrears and starting fair; it will prove the basis ot a little bank account to others; to some—how many, we dare not anticipate-it will be so much money to spend in the alehouse, the c.tnteen, and cognate resorts. Tbecorductottttesoldier and (he way in which he uses his money will be fair tests of the condition of the soldier's mind. Now, he is by far the best paid soldier in the world. Fed beyond com- parison with rations such as no foreigu army dreams of, with a system of rewards carried to the greatest extent possible, well lodged and well clad, a provision secured fdr old age if lie remained in the service, with a status in public estimation greater than it ever was before, with prospects such as never existed of promotion in and from the non-commissioned classes, and with a certainty of employment if he leaves with a good character, the British soldier, with his canteens, institutes, lectures, recreation grounds, gardens, medical supervision and care, is beyond doubt, one ofthe most looked after, if not the best off, of the human family.-Army and Navy Gazette, SHOCKING OCCURRENCE NEAR BRECON.—A girl named Sarah Evans, aged sixteen, was in the service of Mr and Mrs Boobbyer, of Glanusk, near Brecon. A youth named Hammond, who had been in the same employ, had latterly visited at the house, and was there on Sunday evening. In an attic of the house were a gun and pistol which had been hung up a long time. A young man named Walters returned home to Glanusk after having driven Mr and Mrs Boobbyer to church, and saw Hammond and Evans chatting pleasantly together. Walters went up to the attic with Hammond and brought the pistol and gun downstairs to show to Evans, Hammond remarking This is the gun J used to shoot with.' The girl laughed and advanced to within a few paces of Hammond. As Walters turned to replace the pistol, he heard Hammond cock the gun and it went off immediately. On looking round he saw Evans fall wounded in the head. When the medical man arrived the girl was dead. A post-mortem examina- tion was made, and in the brain was found about an ounce of shot. At the inquest Hammond volunteered a statement. He said he did not know that the gun was loaded, nor that there was a cap on the gun. He expressed himself as very sorry for what had happened. There had never been any quarrelling or words between him and the deceased. The jury returned a verdict of Manslaughter against him, and he was committed for trial.
HOLX, OWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS. -Marvellous cures of scsatica, stiff joints, paralysis of the limbs, and other crippling di eases of the bones, sinews, and muscles, have been accom- plished by Holloway's Ointment. It is the only unguent which produces any impression on these complaints. The Pills also work wonders. The ointment and pills should be both used at the same time, for the action of the one is greatly assisted by that of the other. Why should any human being suffer from the abovementioned maladies, when Holloway's Ointment and Pills are to be found in every city and town in the world? These noble medicaments are composed of rare balsams, and are as benign and safe as they are powerful and effieaeious. INTERESTING TO LADIES.—At this season of the year, the important process of bleaching and dressing Laces and Linens for Spring and Summer wear commences, we would therefore- particularly call the attention of our fair readers to the Glenfield Starch, an article of primary importance in the getting up of these articles. The G enfield Starch is specially manufactured for family use, and such is its excellence that it is now exclusively used in the Royal Laundry, and Her Majesty's Laundress pronounces it to be the finest Starch she ever used. Her Majesty's Lace Dresser says it is the best she has tried, aud it was awarded two Prize Medals for its uperiority. The manufacturers have much pleasure in *Uting that they have been appointed Starch Purveyors to H.R.H. the Princess of Wales.

rom Mr Lock's solicitor asking for the immediate pay- tnent of £ 180, the amount of award and costs given Mr ■k&ck in the drainage arbitration case some time back. 'Should like to know of the Treasurer how much he had in hand to meet it. ■i Treasurer replied he had none. There was, he aid, thejESPO of district rate uncollected, but they had all estimate to provide for other than the arbitration case, 0ut of that 3um of £ 345. fc. A special rate was spoken of to meet the present case, but was opposed. It was eventually resolved that the Collector be ordered to at once enforce the payment of the rate, so as to meet the payment of the claim as quickly as Possible.
