POLICE INTELLIGENCE. NEWPORT TOWN HALL—MOHOAI, Jut-v 24. nijar. tht Mayor, and T. Hawkins and Thomas Hughes, Esqrt, A DETERMINED SINNER. Elizabeth Davies, an old offender, who has been charged on various occasions with offences against the laws, and has been convicted of felony three times, was the first prisoner placed at the bar this morning, charged with having refused to go home when ordered. PC. Hopkins proved that he saw the prisoner on the pave- ment by the canal side at midnight, on which occasion he or- dered her home. She moved aside, and having subsequently found her obstructing the pavement, be took her off to the Sta- tion House. Mi Superintendent Hopkins stated the occasions on which the prisoner had been convicted, and the punishment she had undergone. The Mayor committed her for two months to the new House of Correction at Usk, with hard labour, as an idle and disor- derly person. A FOOLISH SOT. Mary Jane Higgin, a prostitute from the Fields, was charged with stealing a purse containing £1 4s 6d, from the person of one John Ford, of Abenychan. John Ford, a butcher, told his simple story in a very simple manner. He had entered a beer-house to have refreshment, and was seduced by the basilisk eyes of the prisoner to remain there treating her and refreshing himself from morning until night, soon alter which he found the piisoner's hand in his deep money pocket, but suspecting nothing felonious, he suffered her to withdraw it. She soon after withdrew herself, and then he roused himself from his fuddling stupidity, and found he had been robbed. The prisoner was committed for trial. ALLEGED NEGLIGENCE OF A PILOT. J. W. Little, master of the Amity, of Whitehaven, was summoned by the Harbour Master for damaging a jetty head to the amount of £1 45 5Jd. The Harbour Master proved the Amity being moored at the lower ballast stage, on Wednesday, 12th of July. The ship listed considerably towards the front pile of the jetty, which, on examination afterwards, was found to be sprung from the ship lying against it. This was owing to her being moored by the pilot, George Morgan, in an improper manner, when be brought her to the stage. 4 Captain Little said he did not think himself liable for this amount of damage, as the pilot had the command of the ship, and had moored her in the condition the Harbour Master had described and under an Act of George IV., a pilot in com- mand of a ship was liable for the consequences of his negli- gently or improperly disposing of her. Mr Hawkins thought the pilot was the culpable party. If any damage resulted from the pilot having improperly moored the ship, the pilot, and not her captain, was alone the responsi- ble party. The Harbour Matter aaid pilots in this port were extremely nesligent, for as soon as they moored vessels under their charge, they left them to the mercy of every thing. He wished the question settled, whether pilots or masters were to be sum. moned for damages, 's he had a charge now to prefer against Morgan, for damaging a buoy. Mr Hughes recommended the Harbour Master to take this case before the Pilot Commissioners, where he should chiirge Morgan with neglect of duty. If the Commissioners were to examine the matter, and prove it, no doubt Morgan would lose his license. Mr Hawkins said it was very material that the Pilot Com- missioners of the port should look after and investigate such matters. The Mayoi dismissed the case. THE BID-ALE NUISANCE. Catherine Hughes, sister of the hideous Cripple of the Fields, was charged with selling beer at her house on the 25th ult., without a license, James Franklyn proved, hesitatingly, he had drunk and paid for beer in Hughes's house on the day stated, with a number ot other persons. James Wall, whose knowledge of a similar case a few court days since was .0 very limited, was again produced as a wit- ness; but though he very gravely assured the Btnch he'd tell 'em all he stcd and knowed on't, he could merely say, in reply to many questions, What I can't say, I can't sav, and that s flat." Mr Hughes and Mr Hawkins severely censured the conduct of Wall. The Mayor convicted Hughes in the penalty of five poundp and the expenm. Hannah Thomas was charged with selling beer, on the 1st of July, without a license. The Mayor ordered defendant to pay a fine of five pounds, andtheexpenses. The notorious Walford was charged with the sime offence and, after being several times remanded, was this day fined in the sum of five pounds and costs. A DEN OF THIEVES. John Holmes, a man of good address and respecta ble appear- ance, was charged with allowing thieves and prostitutes to assemble in his house. Sergeant Huxtable proved that he went into the Neptune on Monday night last, the house of the defendant, where he found a large number of thieves and prostitutes. [Witness stated the number of offences with which about a dozen of ther" had been charged, and the number of convictions they had undergone. I A pretty assemblage, truly !] Mr Holmes said he had not been landlord more Hi m about a month, and did not know his company, or he wou i not have suffered such a disgraceful set to assemble. He was I he victim I of malice in this case, however; for he had been coni| lainedof Ito the Mayor by persons who suffered conduct just a¡ flagrant in their houses, and sold beer and spirits during the hou.sof Di- vine Service. Fined 10s and the expenses. James Thaine was charged with allowing beer to he con- sumed in his bouse after hours, on the 3rd instant, snl was fined 2s 6d. Elizabeth Davies, alias Pugh, was charged with being an idle and disorderly proXitute about the streets, and was seat to prison for two months. John Joseph was charged with stealing apples from the gar- den of Mrs Rebecca Harrhy, and was discharged, no prosecu- tor appearing. William Strickland, Edward Gibbon, and John Pring, were charged with stealing a quantity of fruit Irom the garden of Mr Webb. The prisoners wfcra remanded. WEDNESDAY, JULY 26. Edward Gibbon, John Pring, and William Strickland weie charged with atttempting to rob Mr Webb's garden, and to break out of the station house. The informant who had preferred the charge did not appear, and the Mayor, giving them a salutary caution, dismissed the prisoners. Edward Davies was charged with drunken and disorderly conduct, and with making an attempt to break out of the sta. lion house. Sergeant Huxtable stated that on Monday evening he was on duty in Cross-street, when he saw the prisoner revelling in a drunken state, and tickling the humours of a large audience by disorderly and uproarious discord. Prisoner would not give up his disturbances and go quietly home, so he was conveyed to the lock-up, on the road to which he was excessively noisy and abusive. After he was locked up, he attempted to bre«k out, but found the strong walls of the stronghold too poweiful to allow him. In default of paying the usual," the prisoner was sent to prison for a month. 1 homas Day was charged with stealing a loin of mutton, the property of Mr Hicks, butcher. This charge arose from a mistake, and without suffering very deeply in character therefrom, the Mayor ordered Day to be discharged.
MERTHYR POLICE.—JULY 21. Before G. B. Morgan, Esq" and the Rev. C. Mayberry. Thomas Hier was charged with assaulting Thomas Jenkins, b°Lt appeare'd^thi parties had been drinking together, when the complainant used abusive language towards defendant, which was the occasion of the assault. Ordered to pay all the expenses. John Edwards was charged with assaulting David French, both being firemen, of Dowlais. Edwards wss fioed 5s and costs. „ Joseph Quamby, hawker, was charged by George Hoskins, toll collector, with assaulting him. Discharged, on paying the expenses. Rachael Williams was charged by Jane Thomas, married women, of George Town, with assaulting ber, and throwing water over -ber person. Complainant had no witness to substantiate her information, while defendant called a witness who swore positively that de- fendant only threw some water into a cess-pool, near which the complainant stood, and a portion of which splashed against her clothes. Case dismissed, complainant to pay costs. David Richards, puddler, of Penydarran, was charged by PC William Thomas, with an assault. Fined two pounds, iacluding the costs, and in default of payment, was committed to Cardiff House of Correction for one month.

David Gower and Thomas Evans, stewards of a certain Be. nefit Society called the Plymouth Firemen's Society, were sum- moned by WiUiam Lewis, for refusing to pay sick allowance, which he claimed as a member, according to the rules of the above society. Defendants objected to pay the amount claimed on the ground that the claimant was in America during his sickness, although they could not deny having received his contribution and fines regulatly II a member. Ordered to pay the sum demanded-rour pounds four shil- lings-and COSIS. Attorney for complaioant, Mr Smith, clerk to Wm. Davis, Esq. attorney for defence, Mr R.

This news reached the ears of Ihe vigilant police before it had spread far, and the lying varlet was taken iOlo custody. The prisoner informed the Bench that he told the collector "ontyforatark." The Bench aaid such larks were very reprehensible and giving the fellow a caution to leave off such practices, he was discharged.. MONDAY, JULY Before G. R. Morgan, Esq.

SERIOUS COLLISION WITH ( REBECCAITES. On Monday morning last a gentleman whose family are at present stopping in Glamorganshire, conveyed to us the intel- ligence that serious outrages had been committed by the fol- lowers of the Amazonian Great Unknown, 1. IDe neighbour hood of Swansea that the police had been violently handled and that Captain Napier, the chief constable of the county, had been dangerously wounded. We deemed it well to proceed to Swansea, and on our arri- val found the town a scene of great excitement, and on seeking information from sources likely to prove authentic, learned that a conflict had certainly taken place, but fortunately on a small scale that several Rebeccaites had been captured, and were th n prisoners in the town and that Captam Napier had been injured, after manifesting the humanity and forbearance which become a brave soldier. It appeared that the anti-toll-gate campaign having widened the circle of operations, and frightened some of the good and peaceable people of Swansea, the active and intelligent head of the constabulary force of the county was vigilantly on the look- out. On Wednesday night last week, a considerable force of the gate levellers marched to Bwlgoed toll house, near Pontar- dulais, about seven miles from Swansea, on the Carmarthen road, forced the keeper out without making his toilet, and placing an implement in his hand, compelled him, under cer- tain threats of dealh, to aid in the work of demolition, and lest he should take the liberty of tracing any of the Guerillas home, they locked him in an adjoining stable, where he was shivering, en chemise, till daylight did appear." Disorganization was increasing with impunity, and as toll-gate keepers looked upon each coming night with fear and trembling, as probably the last of their road-side reign, the authorities of Swansea were not wanting in efforts for prevention and detection. Heretofore the seal of secresy has been upon the lips of all sympathisers with the Rebeccaites, and none were found to give a trace to the homes of the termagant, or any of her myrmidons On Saturday ntght, however, according to public report, a person named John Jones, or Lletty Fulbert, not having the love or ear ?i J^ecca before his eyes, but being moved and insti- gate by John Barleycorn, or the genius of cwrw dha, met a polrceman at a beerhouse, and there showed symptoms that he would a tale unfold of the wicked lady's visits 10 the glimpses of the moon. Inspector William Rees, of Swansea, was duly acquainted ^with the ctrcumttaoce, and deemed this a favourable opportu- nity of obtaining information touching the names and wherea- bouts of the persons who razed the toll house and bar of Bwl- goed. Puisuing this intent, Rees had the informer conveyed to a place of safety, where no person was allowed to interfere with his expressed intention of rendering the State some ser- vice, and where, the wicked Rebeccaites insinuated, his public spirit was kept effervescent. Be that as it may. whether such report arose from malevolence or otherwise, we know not. In- spector Rees applied to the county magistrates, who, having lOin U ¡ely scanned Jones's story, issued warrants against persons charged with the commission of Rebeccaite outrage at the Bwl- goed gate. Four warrants were confided to Captain N <pier for the apprehension of William Morgan and Henry Morgan, farmers, of the parish of Llandilo, Talybont, and Matthew Morgan and David Jones, of the parish of Llan^erelock. At twelve o'clock the gallant chief constable, accompanied by In- spector Rees. and William Jenkins and H. Lewis, policemen proceeded well armed to execute the warrants. Matthew Morgan was taken at home, about four o'clock.— David Jones was a prisoner soon after, and both were brought to the lock-up house at Swansea. After the performance of this duty, they again set out to take Wm. Morgan and Henry Vloigan. William was found in a field, captured, and left handcuffed in the custody of Jenkins, the policeman and the remainder of the party proceeded to Cwm Cille, near Velindra, the house of Morgan Morgan, farmer, io order to take Henry Morgan. Inspector Rees first entered the house, and told who was outside. He then sent for Captain Napier, who, on entering, was handed a seat by Esther Morgan, moiher of Henry Mor- gan. The object of the visit was then told, the warrant pro- duced, and the signatures of the magistrates—Dillwyn Llewel- lyn and T. E. Thomas, Esquires—were pointed out. Morgan Morgan, the father, said Henry was lame, and could not come then, but would do so at some more convenient time. Morgan, the father, said he would lose his life before his son should go out of his house. On this, Captain Napier ordered Rees to lay hold of Henry Morgan, and a scene of the utmosttiotence ensued, which will minutely appear in the evidence which we give below. Old Morgan, his wife, his sons, Rees and John, the latter of whom was shot, and Morgan's daughter Margaret, fell upon Captain Napier and Inspector Rees like tigers and tiger cats. An iron bar, a reaping hook, a hatchet, a crutch, a hammer, scalding water, and a saucepan, were actively used against Mr Napier and the policemen j one would almost suppose that the ;allant captain must have a charmed life to survive the affray. Is it was, he escapedwithasevere cut on the head, and other Injuries; aud no doubt he would have fallen a victim in the | ischarge of his duty, had he not, when the power of enduring I 'orbearance could go DO further, and when they had endea- voured to discharge a pistol, which he had, against him, he :i ed, by which one of his assailants, named John Morgan, was mounded in the abdomen. Rees was sadly pummelled, and J çnluns, who came to their assistance, rescued both from fur- ther violence, by some dexterous passes of his sword against some neighbours of the Morgans, whom the cry of Lladderch vvyni,"—kijj them!—had brought to the scene of action. Henry Morgan and John Morgan, the wounded man, were liltn brought to Swansea, where the eminent Doctor Bird skil- fully extracted the ball from John and, be it observed, to the ciedit of Captain Napier, that though covered with blood, and suffering severely, he declined the medical relief of Dr. Bird, until that gentleman had first performed the offices of humanity for John Morgan, and assured him-that Morgan's life was not in danger. I The news of the capture of Rebeccaites, and of the affray— magnified into a pitched battle, with reports of the killed and wounded—spread like wildfire over the lawn and neighbourhood -the streets became densely erowded-hundreds assembled at the station house, and the most feverish excitement prevailed; but we did not hear of any breach of the peace. Doctor Bird and Surgeon Rogers paid close attention to thr wounded man, and succeeded in extracting the ball, which had entered the abdomen, passed up, struck the edge of the ilium, and glanced up till it lodged backwards between the second and third ribs, the abdomenal cavity not having been entered in any part. On Sunday afternoon a detachment of the Seventy-third Regiment, accompanied by several very well armed policemen, marched to the neighbourhood of Pontardulais, for the purpose of apprehendingtheparnes who had offended against the law In the morning, and the Morgan family, and others, were con. veyed to prison without resistance. h On Monday morning two additional prisoners were brought in, and the rush of anxious crowds to catch a glimpse of tie new-comers—for whom we heaid repeated expressions of sym- pathy by the people—rendered the streets through which t ey came almost impassable „ Mr Griffith Vaughan, a man of some propetty, and land or of the Pontardulais Inn, and Mr David Lewis, of, we believe, the same locality, are the two persons in question. h The current of the population flowed to the Town Hall, were a numerous bench of magistrates, Sir John Morris, chairman, assembled The court was filled in every part, immediately aher the doors were opened and several members of the Press -London and proVincial-were ready to take the proceedings; but after the lapse of a considerable period, the Rev.

I have to inform you ITPLJ X p.rivate. hea.ring, and therefore you may all depart; but a le investigation is brought to a close when the prisoners mitted."8 °f F fi°a' hearing. the public will be ad- tioIhlSMnrnpnCene°!

P P The people dispersed from the hall slo^y and but the rumours of fresh arrests, and the current °™P a ° judicial to the character of Jones, Ihe informer, gaveP food for gossip and speculation. ° It was said that a rev. gentleman tret Jones's wife ;n raqtle- street, when she assured htm That her husband could know nothing of the occurrences at Bwlgoed and Rhyd v Dand ha- ving been at home every night for the last tw0 months She added that his conduct of late had been very singular so as to induce her to believe him insane. About twelve months since his effects were seized by the officers of the law for debt which circumstance, she added, had a most powerful effect upon his mind. Some time ago, he built a house upon the mountain in the neighbouthood of his former residence, in a bleak and bar ren spot, where it was scarcely possible for a humau being to reside, more especially in such a house as he erected. The country people have a notion that if they can erect a house ID one night upon a common, that house becomes their freehold property. One of those houses Jones attempted to erect for himself, his wife, and five children but Mr Morgan, of Cwm Cille, and Mr Jenkins, of Cynhoidy, conceiving their rights to a sheep-walk invaded by this building, took steps for having it demolished. Jones's wife fancies that this act of Mr Mor a 's so irritated her husband's mind, already weakened by'previous misfortune, that it must have caused him to have sought his re- venge, by staling that Morgan's sons were engaged in the de. struction of the Bwlgoed bar. However, this is mere conjec. ture on her pait. One thing she seems certain of, that her hus- band has not been from home during any one night for the last two months." Consequently, if her statement be true, her husband's story must be untrue as we believe he states he was present at the demolition of the Bwlgoed bar which occurred a considerable distance from his residence, and during the night Jones was in town early on Saturday last, and called at Mr Davies' house. Having sat there a considerable lime, he beckoned to Mrs D., and begged her to ask MrDav.es 10 lend him nveshiitings; but Mr Davies having some knowledge of his character, refused 10 lend him any money. 1 his circumstance plainly shows he was considered unworthy of being trusted wilhPfive sJhiIllDgs by persons who knew him. It is well known that the magistrates have offered a reward of one hundred pounds to any one who will give such informa- tion as will lead to tne conviction of any person engagerllD the destruction of Bwlgoed bar and toll house The statement of Jones's wife is given as being much relied upon by the triends of the Morgans, who are very numerous. PROCEEDINGS AT PETTY SESSIONS.—Tuesday. The doors of the Town Hall were not opened till nearly II o clock, and the populace soon filled to repletion every part of the court. The following magistrates appeared on the bench Tr SIr John Morris, baronet. Chairman. John Homiray, tsq., High I John Grove, Esq. Sheriff J. N. Lucas, Esq, John Henry Vivian,Esq.M.P. Henry Lucas, E.q. Rev. John Collins C. H. Smith, Esq. Colonel Cameron j Edward Thomas, Lsq. Rev. Samuel Davis JJ" Yaughan, Esq* LI. Dilwyn, Esq. J.'D.Verriogton, Esq- LI. Dilwyn, Esq. J. D. Berl-ingtoo, Elq. Howell Gwynn, Esq. Fr'ederick# Colonel Jones The following pneonert were placed in the dock Morgan Morgan, Esther Morgan, his wife (a sharp-looking lady, vho though upwards of 70 years of age, had jumped on the chief constable's back bit his ear, and clapper clawed his face), Rees Morgan who appeared with his head bound up. ilargjiret Morgan, daughter of Esther, a pretty and innocent looking Welsh damsel, who seemed more suitable to turn roses than to cut men's heads with reaping hooks. Henry Morgan surrendered and came to the bar in the course of the moroina, and John Morgan was in the Infirmary. Sir John Morris addressed himself to Mr. Walters, solicitor, of Swansea, who appeared for the prisoners, and who, during he investigation, evinced considerable talent and professional tact. The worthy Chairman said that the proceedings hitherto had been stricily private. The magistrates had minutely scanned 'he evidence in eupport of the charge against ihe pusoners 8' the bar; they had devo'ed much time to ihe subject, as they considered a matter of this grave naiure called for the most anxious attention of those whose duty it became to make the preliminaiy investigation. They h.d explained to the prisoners everything that took place, giving them at the same lime an opportunity of putting in any explanation they might deem ne cessary and proper but, as the prisoners were undefended, their statements were not reduced to writing. The entire evi- dence taken down for the prosecution had been repeatedly read to the prisoners, and explained to them in their native language, the Welsh. The depositions were now in court, and would be read. The only object the magistrates had in view in taking Ille depositions privately, was that they might be better enabled to do jusiice to all patties. Having ascertained all the facts, the depositions would be read and Mr. Walters would have an opportunity of advising the ptisoners either to make a stale. ment or to remain silent. The statements they made to the magistrates in the private room had not been taken down, and consequently could not prejudice their case. Symptoms of dissatisfaction were apparent during the obser- vations of the hon. baronet. Mr. Walters arose and expressed his surprise at the course the magisirates had taken. He applied yesterday for permis- sion to be presenl during the investigation, when he would have had an opportunity of taking up all objectionable points as they occurred, which opportunity was now lost for ever by the deter. mination of the Bench to conduct the proceedings in private, excluding even the professional advisers of the peisons in cus- tody. He ([\1r. Walters) had been led to understand that the proceedings yesterday we'e merely preliminary-merely a con sultation among the magistrates as to the course they should adopt—but that the hearing of the case would be in the pre sence of the public. He deprecated the course taken by tfit Bench, and requested on behalf of the prisoners that the inves tigation should be re.commenced. Considerable excitement pervaded the couit, and loud cheeis and clapping of hands followed the learned gentleman's re marks. It was 1ulte evident that the sympathy of the peoph was strongly with the persons in the dock and the magistrates throughout the day had roosidernble difficulty in restraining popular ebullitions unusual in courts of justice. The Chairman said the magistrates had not Ae slightest ob jec'ion to acceding to Mr. Walters' request, ffhe thought it would io the slightest degree tend to benefit his clients. If he wished to begin tie novo. the m-igistrates were perfectly reach and willing to do so. The magnifies, fully aware of the res. pectaoiltty of the parties in custody, had taken the greatt-s pains in investigating the case. They had endeavoured to pre veotlhe prisoners prejudicing themselves by making any state- ment in fact, no statement made by them had been reduced to writing. Mr. Walters thanked the magistrates, and said he would ex- ercise the option of beginning de IIOVO. He would occasion no unnecessary delay in the examinaiion, and hoped the time an attention of the Bench would not be taxed to any great extent. He would take the opportunity of suggesting that if an opet< examination did not lake place, it might occasion in the public mind (especially In the present excited state of the country), suspicion that the prisoneis' case had not received an impartial hearing. He (Mr. Walters) did cot mean to impute anything unfair in the private examination, but that might be asserted b\ ill-disposed peisons. Much approbation was expressed, which was, however, in staotly checked. The Chairman hoped the public would not act indecorously, otherwise they would be reluctantly compelled to clear thecouri, and proceed with the investigation in their private room. At Mr. Walters' request, the witnesses for the prosecution were ordered to retire from the court. The first witness called was Captain Napier. He appeared ill, and had^ prima facie evidence of rough treatment by the prisoners, The gallant gentleman gave his evidence with much candour, giving to the persons charged every fair advantage which occurred in the course of his examination. Captain Napier, examined by the Magistrates' Clerk War- rants were signed by J. D. Llewelyn and T. E. Thomas, Esqs., two of her Majesty s justices, and delivered to me. I went, in company with Inspector Rees, police-serjeant Jenkins, and police-constable Henry Lewis, to execute the warrants. About mneo clock on Sunday morning, we arrived in the neighbour- 5? Si,r m ,e* Upon arriving there, we apprehended Mat hew Morgan close to his own house, which is on the right hand side of the road, and within 300 yards of Cwm Cille fami house, i lett the pnsoner Matthew Morgan in custody with Jenkins and Lewis on the road and proceeded with Inspector Rees across the fields to Cwm Cille. When we arrived there LLC rr Spe*l°r ^ees t0 S° into the house and ascertain whether Henry Morgan was in the house. He went in, and in a few mmutes.the prisoner Margaret Morgan c ime out, and 1 went into the house with her. The inmates offered me a chair "'ff011' Inspector Rees, having spoken something iu Welsh, told me that he had informed the family 1 was Capt. Napier, the.chlef constable for the county. 1 produced the warrant against Henry Morgan, and desired Inspector Rees to explain to the parties the nature of the warrant, and the names of the magistrates by whom the warrant was signed. I myselt pointed out the signntures of the magistrates to Henry Morgai and to the father. Inspector Rees informed me that the father stated Henry Morgan was lame and could not walk. I desirec Rees to tell them that Henry Morgan must come with us, ami directed him to take the man into custody at once. He spoke to them in Welsh, and seemed to have some argument with them He then laid hold of Henry Morgan by the arm. Tht whole of the family then surrounded Rees. and endeavonr, d to prevent the removal of their rela ive I saw Morgdn Mor- gan, Esther Morgan, Margaret Morgan, John Mor^in, and Reel Morgan interfering with Mr. Rees. Henry Morgan sue ceeded In avoiding being captured, and attempted to run to. ward* the stairs. I came forward and laid hold of him t'y tlu collar, upon which Esther Morgan attacked me: she jumped on my back, scratched my face, and bit my ear. The lather took a crutch, and struck tnerepeatediyupon tnv head the old woman took an iron bar from the fire, and struck me two or three times upon my head with it. Immediately after, Mar- garet Morgan and the young man who is now in the Infirmary also attacked me. Margaret Morgan having struck me with a stick, took a saucepanful of hot water off The fire, and threw the water over me, which compelled me to let Henry Morgan go. They continued struggling with me till I got outside the door, when I fell. Previous to my falling, I drew a pistol fr,nf1 my pocket. While I was down on the ground. Morgan Mor- gan laid hold of my pistol hand by the wrist, and John Morgan put his hand over my finger, and his finger on the trigger. At this time the pistol was not cocked; the hammer was "upon tin- cap. Morgan Morgan placed his right foot upon my thigh and his left upon my gtoin. John Morgan had one foot upon the inside of my thigh, and was kicking me with the otherfoot. Having both by their endeavours turned the muzzle toward. my stomach, I felt the young man's finger pressing the trigger Receiving a cut upon my head at that moment with a reapinJ hook hy Margaret Morgan, and finding them making repeated attempts to fire the pistol off, by pressing the trigger, so much 10, that if the pistol had been cocked, 1 must have been shot I considered my life to he in danger—turned the pistol, cocked it with my thumb, and fired I hit the young man who is now at the Infirmiry He stepped back on receiving the shot, and again advanced and attacked me. I succeeded in getting upon my feet. John Morgan, his brother, who had a mason's ham- mer in his hand, the father, and Margaret Morgan, with the reaping hook, all advanced towards me. I fired a second pis. tol, but not at any one. 1 then observed Henry Morgan with a hatchet in his hand. Rees Morgan attacked me with a ham- mer. 1 knocked him down with my fist. Observing Henry .Morgan attempting to escape, I called to Inspector Rees to follow him he did so. I was following Inspector Rees when Rees Morgan again interrupied me, and tried to prevent rm from following- I again knocked him down with my fist. Inspector Rees then returned, having failed in capturing IlelJr\ Morgan. I then observed a mason's hammer in Rees Morgan's pocket: I attempted to take possession of it he resisted 11)) attempt, and struck at me with it. I wrench d it out of his hand, and struck him upon his head with it. He then left mc alone. I then directed Inspector Rees and Scjeant Jenkins, who had just arrived, to take John Morgan into custody, and to biing him together with Matthew Morgan, 10 Swansea. Henry Morgan, during the whole time. made no attempt to at- tack me, but seemed anxious to get away. Cross-examined Esther Morgan did not receive a shot in any part of her dress- She was not near. The only two shots fired were fired by me; the one at the hoy and the other by the side of his head, but not at any one. Inspector Rees, during iny struggle, was struggling with some one at a shoit distance. When 1 was on the ground, my feet were towards the door of Cwm Cille house. William Rees, Inspector of Police, Swansea, was then called and examined On^ Sunday morning last, I accompanied Captain Napier to Cwm Cille, in the parish of Llangefelach. Between eight and nine o'clock weanived at Cwm Cille. 1 went into the house and saw Esther Morgan there, who handed me a chair to sit upon. I told her 1 wanted her son Henry to go with me to his brother's house. Morgan Morgan said Henry was lame, and that his brother must come to hIm. 1 told them that Captain Napier was outside the house, and re- quested Margaret Morgan to call him in. She did so and soon returned accompanied by Capt. Napier. He opened the warrant in his hand. I told Morgan Morgan and Henry Mor- gan (in Welsh) that there was a warrant signed by Mr. Lle- welyn and Mr. Edward Thomas, for the purpose of taking Henry Morgan to Swansea. 1 told them that the gentleman with me was Captain Napier, chief constable for this county. Morgan Morgan told me he would lose his life before his son Henry Morgan should go out of the house. I told Captain Napier what he said, and asked him what was to be done. He told me to take hold of him. I took hold of him by his arm. Rees Morgan then took hold of me. and John and Margaret Morgan came down stairs and also took hold of me, and rescued the prisoner. Henry Morgan then went towards the stairs. Captain Napier took hold of hIm Morgan and Esther Morgan interfered. Esther had apiece of iron in hei hand, with which she struck Captain Napier upon the head. [ was pushed out of the house by Rees, John, and Margaret Morgan. After we got outside the house, the piisoner, Rees Morgan, took hold of this spear [producing a most dangerous three pronged spear,] and kept poking it at me for the purpose of preventing me leturning into the house. John and Marga ret then went into the house, and left Rees with me. In about a minute or so I saw them carrying Capt. Napier out of the house. He was bleeding very much from the head. They threw him down against the wall, which is opposite to the door. Margaret Morgan brought a saucepan, containing hot water, and threw the water towards me. ghe then turned the saucepan with the open part downwards, and aimed a blow at my head and face, which I parried off with my club. She then went towards the cart house, and brought a hook similar to this, or this [handing in a sickle,] and struck at Capt. Nâ- pier s head but whether the blow took effect or not I cannot say. Capt. CSapier had a pistol in his hand, the muzzle ot which was towards his own body. Morgan and John Morgan were trying to take it out of his hand Captain Napier twisted the pistol round and I heard a shot; but whether it took effect or not I cannot say. He then got up. Henry Morgan then ca,m6 Vi JL ."°u,se WU^thls halchet.

Margaret, Esther, and Rees Morgan followed Captain Napier and myself into the field. Margaret Morgan had the sIckle In her hand- Esther Morgan had the stick with which the attempted to stnke me several times. Sergeant Jen- kins then came into the field, took his sword out, pointed it at RMt MorgM, aud itruck him with the flat ot the sword. In a sfiort time afterwerdc we returned to Swansea, bringing with us the wounded man and Matthew Morgan. Mr. Rees underwent a rigid cross-examination by Mr. Wal- ters, but his evidence was not at all shaken. G. G. Bird, Esq., M.D., Mayor of of Swansea, was exam- ined on the Bench. On Sunday morning last, about eleven in the forenoon, I saw Captain Napier. 1 examined his head and found a cut upon the left side, about two inches in length. It was down to the skull. There was also some scratches on his face, and a mark upon his left ear, apparently a bite Fhe e were also bruises upon his head, and he cnmplained of his hip having been hurt. I dressfd the wound on his head. Police-serjeant William Jenkins examtmed I accompanied Captain Napier to Cw-m Cille on Sunday morning last. He took Matthew Morgan into custody, and left him with Henrs I ewin auc' me upon the road- Captain Napier and Mr. Ree- f C'lle house.

Captain Napier then gave John Morgan in charge to me. I handcuffed him to Matthew Mor- gan, and we all returned to Swansea. The evidence on the part of the prosecution having been closed, Mr. Walters was called upon for any defence or state- ment he might wish to make. Mr. Walters declined saying anything he admitted that a prima facie case for a committal had been made out, but hoped that the bench would take bail for the appearance of the pri- soners at the sessions, or assizes. The chairman said the bench did not intend proceeding fur- ther with the case this day, but intended adjourning to nine o'cluck to-morrow morning, when, if they should determine to commit the prisoners, they would take his application into con- sideration. Should the magistrates determine to commit the prisoners for trial, they will, in that case, accept of sureties for the prisoners' appeaiance, to take then tiial. The amount of bail which the magistrates require will he for each of the prin- cipals, £ '200; and two sureties for each prisoner m the suiH of £ 100 each. At different Intervals durIng the afternoon, Mr. Tripp, who appeared on behalf of the piisoner David Jones, of Court-y- Carny, a young man of very respectable connexions, and Mr. Jeffreys, on behalf of Mr. Griffith Vaughan, made several ap- plications to the bench with various success, in most instances the magistrates, after retiring to consult, lefusing to grant the requests made to them. The attorneys who appeared on hehalf of the prisoners, how- ever, received permission to inspect the warrants under which their clients had been apprehended they were also piomised fiee access to their clients within twenty-four hours from the rising of the court. Mr. Tripp then requested to be informed what the charge* were which it was int, nded to prefer against bis client. Ht bought it but fair that he should know at once the nature o: the crime wiih which he stood charged, so as to be enabled to prepare his defence. I'he chairman stated that the bench could not comply with Mr. Tripp's request; in fact, it was not in the magistrates' power to do so, as they were themselves unacquainted with the charges to be pteferred against the parties in custody. Ttus announcement cieated some sensation. At a later period of the afternoon. Mr. Tripp again addresser! the bench, stating that his client had already been in custody hree days, and hadnote\en been made acquainted with the nature of the crime with which he stool charged. It was a case of peculiar hardship. He (Mr. Tripp) would not for a Moment question the expediency of the course pursued by tht magistrates, or attempt to denv that the purposes of public justice might not require the adoption of the course that had heen taken; but he would stale that under the circumstances 01 the case his client was entitled, as a matter of right, to be libe- rated from custody if he were provided with sureties will -hould guarantee that he would appear when required to do so. He ( M r. Tripp) was prepared with suretIes of uflqutstionabl, responsibility, and therefore he hoped the bench would at one, allow his client to be liberated under bail. Mr. Tripp sup- ported his application by referring to several decided cases in which the principle that he contended for bad been fully laid down and acknowledged. Mr. Jeffreys and Mr. Walters, on behalf of their respectiv, clients, made similar applications, but to which the magis- trates, after retinng for consultation, refused to accede. Tht- I arties, therefore, still remain in custody. The following are the names of the persons in custody, charged with having been concerned in the demolition of the Bwlgoed bar and toll house :-Griffith Vaughan, Daniel Lewis, John Morgan, and David Jones. Matthew Morgan and Henry Morgan are also in prison, charged with having been concerned in the destruction of Rhy. dypandy gate. During the whole of the afternoon the large Hall wasdenseh crowded by inhabitants of all classes, who evinced the deepest anxiety to catch every word uttered by the magistrates, attor- neys, and witnesses. The charges of Rescue and Aggravated Assault being thus far sustained, The parties in custody for the destruction of the Bwlgoed and Rhydypandy tcdl-bars will be brought up for hearing to- morrow (Wednesday). The Court adjourned at five o'clock. We much regret to learn that the war against the gates still progresses in Carmarthenshire, notwithstanding the utmost vi- gilance of the military under Colonel Love and the locul au- thorities- ) he following Resolutions have been adopted at some of the Rebeccaite Meetings.

DISCHARGE OF THE PRISONEKS ON BAIL. Wednesday, 2 o'clock. The following magistrates were present :— Sir John Morns, baronet, Chauman. J H. Vivian, Esq., M.P. John Gfove, Esq. J- D. Berrington, Esq. i Colonel Jones Colonel Cameron Henry Lucas, Esq. Rev. John Collins J. N. Lucas, Esq. Rev. Samuel Davis J. D. Llewelyn, Esq. L. VV. Dillwyn, Esq. C. H. Smith, Esq. L. LI Dillwyn, Esq. The prisoners were then placed at the bar, and Mr. Attwood, the magistiates' clerk, read over the charge to them. Esthet Morgan was charged with having feloniously and maliciously assaulted Captain Napier, with intent to prevent the lawful apprehen,ion of her btother, Henry Morgan; and Morgai Morgan, Esther Morgan, and Rees Moigan were charged will, aiding and abetting the said Es her Morgan. A Welsh interpreter being sworn, he explained to them in Welsh the nature of the charge, and told them they might ad dress any observations to the Bench they thought proper but at the same time warned them that whatever they did say would betaken down in writing and, if necessary for the purposes of public justice, used against them at some future period. 1 he prisoners, acting under the advice of Mr. Walters, their solici- ,or, declined saying anyhing. The magistrates, having formally committed the prisoners, intimated to Mr. Walters their readiness to liberate them, if they could produce good and substautial bail for their appear. ance at the next assizes. Mr. Walters replied that he was prepared with the necessary sureties. Mr. Isaac Jones, Mr. Robert Williams, the Rev. Daniei Davies, and Mr William Thomas, then bound themselves it, the sum of £ 200 each, namely, £100 for each prisoner, to pro. duce the prisoners respectively at the next Glamorganshire assizes. The whole family were then discharged out of custody, and left the hall accompanied by large numbers, who pressed to shaxe hands and congratulate them. Sir John Morris, then addressing Messrs. Tripp and Waltets, said that the magistrates, satisfied that the course they wert about pursuing was a safe one, wished to state that they were willing to liberate the prisoners charged with the destruction o the toll bars, upon condition of each finding two sureties to the amount of C50 each. Mr. Walters wished to know whether the young man who was wounded, and whose case could not be brought forward in consequence of his illness, was to be liberated upon finding sureties. Mr. Aitwood said the charge against him was of a much more serious niture-felony. The Chairman imagined that could make no difference, as his father, mother, and other relatives, who were charged with the commission of the very same offence, had just been liberated on bail. He enquired whether there was any technical objec tion to the course suggested by Mr. Walters. Mr. Tripp replied that there was not. Mr. Walters said he was anxious the young man should bt made as comfor able as circumstances would permit, aod there fore would respectlully request the magistrates to accept of bar tor his appearance when necessary. If there were insuperabU objections to receiving bail in his case (objections which ce' tainly he did not perceive), he (Mr. Walters) should considei it to be his duty to request the magistrates to proceed at one. with the investigation, as the young man's health was sum ciemly restored. The Chairman said he had no objection to taking any course most satisfactory to Mr. Walters, especially in this young man. case, who had already suffered much and which, perhaps, inight influence the magilitrales to grant him some indulgence. It was necessary in the present investigation that everything should be extremely regular. The whole county watched thei, proceedings in fact, the eyes of the whole kingdom wert urned towards them therefore it was necessary that they shoulc avoid informality in their proceedings. If there were no tech- nical objection io the way, he and his brother raagislratti would r not have the slightest difficulty in MOtding to Mr. Walters's application in fact, it would afford them much pleasure to be able to do so. Mr. Walters requested the magistrates to name an eaily du-. flf, pursuing the investigation. The Chairman leplied that the time of the magistrates was at the disposal of the public. He would be happy to meet Mr. Waltets's convenience in any way. Mr. Tiipp hoped the magistrates would have no objection to blowing him a copy of the depositions taken against David Jon a. Mr. Attwood said that Mr. Tripp would be entiiled to a co^jr is soon as the case was closed. Mr. Tripp said it would then be his right he asked for a ■opy now in common fairness to his client. The Chairman 1 cannot give an opinion upon the subject ane way or the other. Colooel Jones We can retire and take the matter into con- -ideration. Mr. Walters again adveited to the case of John Morgan, and requested the magistrates would take the elimination at the I Infirmary. Some conversation ensued upon the subject and it was of. agreed that the examination of witnesses should be l|IT)a,e'3' to-n.onow ai the House of Correction aod in yrocee e wi. man'g committal, the magistrates engaged to use o ne you g. -:n„ SUreties to tbe same amount as those 11berate htm upon tino.. procured by his B0I\. ned lo the station house, for the J he magistrates then adjou. of lhe sever(ll purpose of receiving bail for be a^ ed ID ,he Bwlgoed and soners charged w,th having been engafc Rhydypandy riots.
