Complainant sworn said I am the wife of Wm. Campbell. On Saturday night last, I and my husband were at a lodging house in East End, Pembroke, at Mr Miller. The prisoner came there to look for lodgings she stopped there overnight: on Sunday morning I placed a chemise and other things on top of the bed post. I and my husband got up, and the prisoner came down stairs into the room where we were at Lreakfast, and went away refusing to take breakfast. I thought something was wrong and went upstairs immediately, and I saw the things on the bed-post removed and put on one side, and the chemise was gone. I went to the Police-station aDd gave information of what I bad lost. At 3 o'clock the same Sunday afternoon at the Police-station, the policaman shewed me my chemise this one (produced) I is my chemise. I know it by this mark it is of the value of Is. George Evans sworn said: I am Police Constable of this County, acting in the Borough. About half-past ten on Sunday morning, I received information from last.witness, and from description given, I went to Pembroke Dock, and there apprehended the prisoner on the charge, when she admitted having the chemise and was wearing it. I brought her to the Police-station, Pembroke, and she said her own chemise was left at the lodging house. I went there and got it and trougUit to her at the Station, and she put it on and took this one off. This is the chemise I had from prisoner. Mrs Campbell was at the Police-station at the time, and identified it as her property it has been in my possession ever since. Prisoner was then cautioned, and pleaded guilty. Summarily committed-for one month hard labour.—Captain Joseph Richardson, Pembroke Dock Artillery Volunteers, charged Sergeant-Major Thomas jinhr, of the same corps, with having in his possession •A i colours, a busby, tunic, trousers, and other articles, uoperty of the corps, and refusing to return them cfeeing requested to do so. Mr W. 0. Hulm con "< dthe case for the prosecution. Mr Hulm said that 't< £ was sorry to have to appear against Mr Forder, who waA a gentleman well known and highly respected, but on March 10th, 1868, Mr Forder had been dismissed from the corps hy Captain B. Jones, for an allegel mis- demeanour. Since that time application bad been made to him to return his military equipment, and the CO ours of the corps, bat he had neglected to do so. lIe did not impute anything against Mr Forder, who, as he had already observed, was a gentleman highly respected, and the position that he held in the corps was a sufficient guarantee as to his abilities as an efficient volunteer but his having been dismissed from the corps by Captain Jones, the present commandant Captain Richardson wished him to return the articles mentioned. Mr Forder defended his own case with considerable ability, and said that the colours of the corps had been in his posses- lion for upwards of fivo years for safe keeping, and they < \9 to im clothes, lie had worn them six years, and he had done upwards of one thousand drills in them, and they were consequently then not of much value, and be had no objection to return them, but tie did so under protest, as he maintained that he had been illegally dis- missed from the corps, to which he bad the honour oi belonging for nine years since its formation, and he and Sergeant-Major Finley were the only two men who had belonged to the original corps. He was fully aware that the clothes could be demanded, and he had brought them in his dog-cart for that purpose, but he returned them under protest, and to prevent disclosures that would be brought forward at a court of inquiry t'hen pending. In rePly to the Bench, Mr Forder said that he had been wrongfully dismissed, and lie had applied in the proper manner through his commanding officer for an inquiry, and his request had never been forwarded. The corps was also indebted to him nearly £ 20 for money that he had disbursed for t'ie corps. The colours were kept at his house, as Captain Richardson's lodgings were not large enough to hold them. (Laughter) Mr Forder then handed the clothes over to Captain Richardson, and he also undertook to deliver up the colours upon a written requisition with a proper escort. Capt. Mansel said it was too bad that a man like Mr Forder should be dismissed from his corps for an allegei offence, without being heard, and he thought a court of inquiry was necessary. Mr Fordcr (who wore his undress uniform, his own property) thanked the Bench for their patient hearing, and then withdrew. George Ihomns, landlord of the Maltsler's Arm., Pembroke,|and William ltoscuvlu butcher, Pembroke, was charged by Julia Sullivan with an assault, on 80th tilt, fomplainant did not appear Charges were struck out.
