Gabb, the follow- ing case was heard, of which we received a full report just previous to going to press, and too late for insertion entire Thomas Davis, labourer, was brought up by Superintendent Dinham, to answer a charge of highway robbery preferred against him by John Breslin. It appeared in evidence that the prosecutor carries books about for sale that yesterday, on his return from Tredegar, lie and a man whom lie called' his servant, were attacked by three men near the second mile- stone. 011 the Merthyr road, about 10 o'clock at night; that lie I was grossly abused, and robbed of m. The prosecutor swore most positively that the prisoner was one of the men, and the one who had first struck him. The prisoner made a good defence, but "was committed to Monmouth gaol. Messrs. Price, Rutherford, aud J. Ililcy Morgan, offered to become bail for the prisoner's appcarauce'at the assizes, but Mr. F. II. Williams said, though he could have no objection to the bail, f yet he could not deviate from the rule Invariably acted upon f by the Bench. + BLAENAVON IRON WORKS.—SCENE IN A Sunday, the Rev.
