The first-named was fined 7s. 6d., Warren, who was in charge of a horse ;,nd cart at the time, 20s. and costs, and the latter 10s.

Griffith Jones, warehouseman, in the employ of Messrs. Tunbridge and Son, stated that he left the place locked up on Saturday night. On returning on Monday morning he found the skylight in the roof had been broken. —Ll. Beynon identified the coat produced.—John Jones, proprietor of the laundry next door, deposed that hearing the skylight being smashed, and seeing the door of the stores moving, he fetched Detective Davies, who, making an entrance, saw prisoner inside sitting on a bag of soda.—Prisoner was committed to the Assizes.

LLANELLY MATCH.—John Lane, Waterloo-place, for whom Mr. H. Thompson appeared, was summoned for causing an obstruction in Bryn-road. It appeared from the evidence of P.C. Jenkins that defend- ant had pulled his cart in by the football field and was watching the match between Swansea, and Llanelly for about 20 minutes. Tne defence was that Lane was only there two minutes. The case was dismissed for want of evidence. AN ADJOURNED CASE.—The Stipendiary gave his decision in the adjourned case in which Annie Evelyn Jones, landlady of the Three Mariners public-house, Strand, was summoned for supplying drink to a drunken person. It was to the effect that they believed the statement for the defence, that the man Harris, who was in charge, was not aware of the person being drunk. as he was not disorderly. Therefore, they would dismiss the summons, after cautioning Harris to be more careful in future. <> TRIED TO AVOID DISTRAINT.—Wm. Roberts, 76, Fleet-street, was summoned for fraudulently removing his goods to avoid distraint for rent- Mr. Andrews appeared for the prosecution.-Mr. Harrington, Mayals, a traveller, deposed to being the owner of No. 76, Fleet-street. Roberts owed him L2 9s. for rent. It seems that on a distress warrant being issued, defendant removed his fur- niture to 76, Fleet-street.—He was ordered to pay double the value of the goods, JE4, or a month's imprisonment in default. A NEWLY-MARRIED COUPLE IN TROUBLE.— Thomas Lloyd, furnaceman, 87, Graig, was sum- moned by his wife Rachel for desertion.—Mr. Viner Leeder appeared for the complainant, and Mr. R. T. Leyson for defendant. Complainant stated that they had only been married twelve months, when, on the 16th of October, defendant put her outside the door and told her to go where she liked, giving no reason for so doing. The Stipendiary, after giving the parties some good advice, adjourned the case for a week to see if they would become reconciled. FIRST CASE UNDER A NEW ACT.—John Darrock, 1, Green Dragon-lane, was charged with knowingly living wholly or in part, on the earnings of prostitution.
