Mr AlLv.nson (Messrs Turner and Allanson) appeared for the complainant, and Mr J. A. Hughes for the defendant. From the complainant's evidence, it appears that on the evening of the 18th nit., she went into the Prince Llewelyn Inn in quest of her husband. The landlady denied that he was there drinking, and dealt her a blow in the face. Com- plainant having pushed the landlady, thedefen dant, hearing her cries, came to the spot, and assaulted her (complainant). Taking hold of her face from behind, he dragged her along the pas- sage, squeezed her arm, and attempted to throttle her. She showed the marks upon her arm to Sergt.

Complainant had no scuffle whatever with her husband after leaving the house. He only threw her hat off.—Sergt WiHiams, Penygroes, deposed to having seen the murks on the complainant's arm on the evening in question. The defendant's face was black, as if handled by a blacksmith's hand. The defendant is a blacksmith by trade.—For the defence, Mr Hughes said'that no assault had been committed by the defendant, who had merely removed the complainant out of his house.—George Williams, a young blacksmith, said that the defendant's wife was his sister. On the evening in question, he saw the complainant endeavouring to a&sault his sister, and he forcibly removed her by grasping her arm and placing his hand on her face.

Mr Jones gave evidence to the effect that the defendant used to visit the com- plainant regularly at his house for the last two years. In rtply to Mr Hughes, witness said that the defendant called to see him occasionally on business in his house. Witness denied having been teaching the defendant to write, if he had been, it was only once or twice. He occasionally wrote and addressed letters for the defendant, but did not do so regularly. He admitted that during his stay at Trefriw the complainant, accompanied by a next door neighbour, came there, and stayed in the same house as himself for three days. He was unaware of her intention to come to Trefriw. Witness saw the complainant on the morning when the case was previously heard, but did not enter into any conversation with her respecting the matter. He was not asked to appear as a witness, and lefl town that day for Manchester, where he was preaching on Sunday.—By Mr Allanson Witness most solemnly denied having taken liberties with the complainant. -Addressing the bench, witness said he was very glad the case had been adjourned at the last hearing, in order that nothing might be said about him behind his back. Insinuations having a tendency te injure his .1 y character had been made. It had been stated that he, ran away to Manchester, whereas he did only what any other person would have done under the circumstauces, and had returned as soon as possible. He desired their worships to say whether it was fair on the part of anyone to make these insinuations behind, his back r -In reply to Mr Allanson, defendant swore that he had nothing to do with the plaintiff.—Mr Powell and Mr White- head retired to consider their decision. Having returned, Mr Whitehead said the evidence was so slight that the bench could not make an order against the defendant. Alleged Malic low! Wounding. » Robert Roberts, quarryman. Llanberis. was charged on remand with feloniously wounding his brother. It appeared that there was a quarrel between them, and prosecutor, thinking the prisoner intended to use his knife, tried to wrest it from him, and, m the scuffle, was cut on his hand. The prosecutor now asked permission to withdraw the charge, which was granted; and the prisoner, on a summons for drunkenness, was fined 2s 6d and costs. Mr Allanson appeared for the prisoner.

Prosecutor said that the defendant did not come to his work on the morn- ing of the 20th ult., and hin master (Edward Hughes) consequently ordered witness to stop him after breakfast time. In the evening, defendant met prosecutor in South Penrallt, and commenced to abuse him. Having gone away, he was again accosted at the top of the street by the defendant, who struck him on the nose, causing blood to flow profusely, and otherwise assaulted him.—The de- fendant, who admitted the offense, was ordered to pay 2s 6d and costs.

Having proceeded to the quay, he found them in the boat, ancl ordered them ashore. They refused to do so for some time, but at last came on board the sloop Sarah. Jones refused to go ashore, and assumed a threatening attitude, but dealt no blow. How- ever, he got hold of his coat, and tore the collar, before leaving the vessel. When prosecutor asked Owen Owens to go ashore, he turned round and struck him several times. He also attempted to throw him into the sea, but was not strong enough to do so.—Both defendants denied having assaulted the prosecutor, and complained of the ill-treat- ment they received at his hands. P.C. Williams, they said, witnessed the proceedings from begin- ning to end.—At the request of the bench, P.C. Williams came forward as a witness. He said that about .t.:W p.m. on Sunday afternoon, the 21st ult., lie was standing near the foundry, and saw Mr Owen proceeding in the direction of the sloop Sarah. He was in a very excited state, and witness followed, so as to see what was the matter. He observed the defendants on board the sloop, talking with Mr Owen, who pushed Thomas Jones about. The lattcr did not do anything to Mr Owen. Having gone up to Owen Owen, a struggle ensued between that defendant and 'prosecutor. Witness was certain that Mr Owen interfered first by pushing the men about.—The bench dismissed the case, but at the same time they blamed the defendants for taking the prosecutor'* boat, which they had no right to do.

He had a stick in hand, and he wielded it across the horse's neck, fore-part, and hind-part. When asked why he ill-treated the animal, the defendant replied that his master had ordered him to do so. The horse could hardly breathe at the time, and died on the following day. —Corroborative evidence was given by P.C. Wil- liams.—Thomas Williams, the defendant's master, said the horse was suffering from a colic, with the view to cure which he gave it a doze of medicine, and ordered the servant to rub it well.
