DAMAGING A DRAIN.—At the Police-court on Saturday, the Bridgend Gas and Water Company were summoned for damaging the arching of the tewn drain, and for breaking up the road without giving notice to the governing body of the town. Mr. Ensor appeared for the Board, and Mr. H. Allen, barrister, for the defendants. It was admitted that the servantsjof the Company had done wrong in not giving notice as to the breaking up of the roads, but it was assumed that the local surveyor was aware of what was going on, and had at different times supervision over their operations. It was agreed to adjourn the case for a fort- night, the company undertaking to reinstate the drain and pay costs. ALLEGED SHEEP STEALING. -Thomas David, of Lan- ilid, farmer, was charged with stealing sheep the property of Messrs. Lewis, farmers, who occupy an adjoining farmer. Mr. Ensor appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Allen for David. It appeared that on the 9th of June the prosecutors lost some sheep, and although they enquired at David's farm and other places, they did not hear anything of them until the following day, when prisoner told one of the Lewis's that he had found 14 of the missing sheep among his flock. From a circumstance which transpired the prosecutors suspected Davis knew something of the other sheep, but they neglected to proceed in the case until this week. The prisoner in the meantime had served them with a writ for defamation of character. Mr. Ensor in presentingthe case to the magistrates, said that he did not look upon his case as a strong one, but full of suspicion. There was no direct evidence to track the sheep to the porsession of the prisoner. Mr. Allen suuggested that the time of the bonch ought not to be occupied with the case if there was no direct evidence to bring the charge against his client. If the case proceeded he should be able to prove conclusively that the sheep which David had sold at Pontypridd that week had never been on his farm, and could not have been the sheep which the prosecutor had lost. After a little conversation, Mr. Ensor acknowledged the weight of the counsel for the defence and withdrew the charge.
