TOWX HALL, NEWPORT.—MONDAY. [Before T. Hughes, James Itennie, and John Hellicar, Esqrs.] • Henry Eaton was charged with attempting to pass a counterfeit coin for a sovereign.—Prisoner was drunk at the time.—Dismissed, after the payment of 3s. fid. costs. \Vm. Jones, albs "Joey up the Chimney," was committed for three months' hard'labour, for having left his wife and three children charge- able to the borough for about four years, whereby, the relieving officer, Mr. Salter, said a cost of about £:50. had been incuried Fanny Dunn was fined Is., and 12s. 6d costs, for assaulting Margaret Hazell, at the cattle market, in a dispute respecting a piece of potato ground. Mary Pearce, a disgusting looking creature, stated to be a married woman, residing at Pillgwenlly, and greatly addicted to beer and bad conduct, was commuted to take lier trial at the setfiions, on the charge of robbing James Patlield, a labourer, of £2. Is., at the Cambrian beer- house, on Monday evening last, while both were partially intoxicated. The landlady, Mrs. Evans, refused to attend to give evidence in this case, and when brought up, and a sharp reproof had been administered to her by the Bench, and also by Mr. Phillpotts, the attorney retained for the prosecution, she excused herself on the ground that it was too disgraceful an affair for her to be mixed up in. From this, it may easily be inferred what kind of case it was. Four little boys and two girls were charged with having broken about 4(Ppanes of glass at the new Hope chapel and schoolroom in Dock street. —Theyourg rebels were severely reprimanded by Mr. Hughes, who said they must all be sent to Usk. They were removed to the station, I some of them crying bitterly. An unusual fact—a woman (Agnes Hutchings) being charged by her poor husband with having assaulted him The "lord and master," however, either did not dare, or did not care, to appear in court to press the charge and an intimation having been given to the Bench, that the affair was patched up, the case was dismissed. Benjamin Anthony was charged with so furiously driving a horse and pliseton down Stow liill, that danger to the public was thereby occasioned, and although one of the furewheels flew off at Mr. Abraham Clements's corner, the velocity was so great, that the carriage did nut fall till at the Tredegar Arms. This was sworn to by PCs Williams and Gould -The defendant was fined 5s., and 10s. Gd. costs, or fourteen days in prison.- Then," cried he, I'll not pay it—I'll throw it to the quarter sessions." —Mr. Kessick If you don't pay, you'll be thrown where the quarter sessions are held."—Defendant, violently: I'll bail myself out-I won't gu.But a PC touched him, and he DID go—at least, to the police cell, to reflect on it and then he paid. Richard Christopher was ordered to pay 7s. 3d. wages to W. Williams, and 5s. 6d. costs, in a week. David Jones was fined 5s., and 12s. 6d. costs, or fourteen days' impri- sonment, for assaulting his apprentice,JamesEvans.-I I Very well, then, to prison I'll go," cried Jones but his wife knowing that his family wanted him at home, said "No, you won't," and paid the money; and so resigning himself, like a martyr, to a superior will, he did not go for the fourteen days. Ihom s Davies was charged with stealing six tons of stone, belonging to Mr. John Johns.—Prosecutor did not appear. Davies said the stones were his own, and not Mr. Johns -Case dismissed. Thomas Davies, formerly of Abergavenny, was charged on suspicion of stealing brass, &c., out of Wm. Jones's canal boat.—Dismissed. The hearing oi 38 borough poor rate summonses, and a number of water rate summonses, concluded the business.
