CARMARTHENSHIRE SPRING ASSTZES. Justice Grove arrived in Carmarthen from Cardigan on Monday evening, at half-past five. His lordship was met at the Carmarthen Town station by Mr. Astley Thompson, of Glyn Abbey (the bigh sheriff), land Mr. Lewis Morris, under sheriff. A well appointed staff of javelin men and the borough police were also in attendance, and escorted his lordship to the Shire-hall, where the commission was opened at six o'clock. On Tuesday morning, at ten o'clock, his lordship attended divine service at St. Peter's Church, where a sermon was preached by the Rev. D. Jones, vicar of Llangendeirne, the sheriff's chaplain. His Lordship took his seat in Court at half-past eleven. The grand inquest for the borough and the grand jury having been sworn, and the proclamation for the encouragment of virtue having' been read, his Lordship addressed the Grand Jury at some length, congratulating them upon the fact that only sixteen cases, of which five were misdemeanours, had been brought before him in the two western counties of South Wales. That he thought was a small number of cases when they considered the size and population of those counties. It was a prevalept notion in England that the Welsh were a litigious people, but that was quite erroneous. TRIAL OF PRISONERS.
