ABERGAVENNY. CHRISTMAS DAY.— In consequence of Christmas-day falling on Tuesday, the day on which the Christmas mar- ket has usually been held in Abergavenny, consultations have taken place among the parties interested as to the day on which it should be held and it was ultimately agreed that the principal meat show should take place on Tuesday last, on which occasion the butchers' shops and the shambles in the market-place, displayed soma exceed- ingly fine joints In Mr. Wm Davies's shop, High-street, which was tastefully decorated, we noticed two beautiful 3-year old heifers, ten first rate sheep (English and Welsh), and two good porkers. At the shop of Air. Wm. llowly a very fine ewe, weighing 138 lbs., bred and fed by Nlr. Dew, farmer, of Carmarthenshire, attracted considerable notice as also a fine 3-year old heifer, and five excellent sheep. In the ill:1.rket-place, 3vlr. John Lewis, of Tudor- street, exhibited two fine heifers, which were much ad- mired, with some good English and Welsh sheep, and porkers. Mr. Henry Bath exhibited the carcases of two fine 3-year old heifers, which attracted notice, aud two fine English yearling wedders and four Welsh sheep. Mr. Wm. Moigau, Tudor-street, also showed some excel- lent meat—one heifer, two yearling wedders—the one weighing 124 lbs., besides four fine Welsh sheep and Mr. John Price, of Tudor-street, some fine porkers and Welsh sheep. We omit at present mentioning the names of other butchers, who brought only the ordinary supply of meat to market, reserving their prime beast and sheep for the latter end of the week. The market in every other department was also well supplied. A great number of fat beast- were shown, and sold at a moderate price but sheep were not so much in demand, and a trifling reduc- tion in price was the consequence-the former realizing 6,1., and the latter 6 £ d. to 61,1. per lb. fat pigs were worth 10s. 6d. per score. The poultry market was well shocked, and towards the close of the market, the prices advanced :—geese, 8id. to 9d. and turkeys, about Is. per lb. fresh butter, Is. 3d. eggs, lid. each roasting pigs, 7d. per lb. ducks. 5s., and fowls, 3s. 6d. to 4s. üd. per couple barley, 6s. oats, 4s. 61. and peas, 8s. per ten couple barley, 6s. oats, 4s. 61. and peas, 8s. per ten gallons. Fish in abundance fresh herrings, 24 a shilling • plaice, 6d. per lb. soles, from 2s. to 3s. a pair. The quotation of wheat up to the present date, ia 79s. 2d. • and barley, 38s. lid. per imperial quarter. TOWN-HALL.—WEDNESDAY. (Before W. Williams, Esq., Aberdare, and the Rev. J. Farquhar.) DRUNK AND DISORDERLY.—A labouring man of the name of William Nash, in the employ of Mr. Morgan, farmer, of Llanthewy parish, was charged by P C. Eze- kial Watkins, with being drunk and making use of bad language in the public streets, on Friday last. It appears that on the day in question the accused went into the shop of Mr. White, clothier. High-street, and became very abusive, and offered to fight the shopman. Watkins was called in to remove him, when the defendant behaved himself in a very unbecoming manner.—Defendant ac- knowledged his fault but as his master had given him a goo I character to the police, the Bench fined him only Is., and costs 10s. 6d., which was immediately paid. NUISANCE.—Mr. Wm. Rowley, butcher, of Flannel- street, complained of a nuisance occasioned by John Forty.—Mr. Rowley stated that on Saturday last, about ten o'clock, the defendant's men came into the street with two empty carts, and commenced wheeling out coal ashes from a yard adjoining his premises, and placed it before his door. Witness did not take much notice of the ashes, but towards middle day they began to bring out soil, which greatly annoyed the inhabitants, particularly him- self, and he was obliged to close his doors. Upon his remonstrating with the men, they laughed at him.—Supt. Lipscomb was called, and witnessed the nuisance.—De- fee lant denied the charge, but was, nevertheless, fined Is., and expenses 15s 61. CHAUGE OF SELLING BEER DURING DIVINE SERVICE. The defendant in this case Mr. Thomas Jones, is the landlord of the Hanbury Arms Inn, Llanellen Edward Wilcox, police-constable, stated that 20 minutes before 4 o'clock, on Sunday afternoon, the 16th inst., he went into defendant's house, and saw three men sitting there. There was a pint cup on the table, with beer in it. Wit- ness called for a glass of beer, which was served to him, and he paid for it.—In defence. Mr. Jones called a witness, John Jefferies, who stated that when Wilcox came in, he represented himself as a traveller, and was asked the ques- tion twice before the beer was brought to him.—The case was dismissed—the policeman being ordered to pay the expenses, 10s. 61. BEERHOUSE CAsE.-Thomas Joneq, of the Crown Inn, Pantygelly, was charged with drawing beer after hours, and with selling beer during Divine service, on the 8th and 9th inst.-Both charges were proved, and the defend- ant was fined in the mitigated penalty of 20s. for the two cases, and 20s. 6d. expenses.
