ANNIVERSARY AT PRIORY CHAPEL—The above place of worship held their anniversary on Sunday AND Monday evening, the 24111 and 25th inst. The Revs D Rees, of Cwnaavon, and J A Roberts, of Nantymoel, were the elect of the Church to officiate THIS year, and the crowded ccn;.Rrrgalfons—especially throughout the whole of Sunday—proved th, vyisdem of the selection. We understand that the (jhurch accepted the services of the hist-named on the recommendation cf the pastor. But henceforth he will require no recommendation from anybody within the circle of ten miles to the Priory. THE people were wondering how it was that he WAS not introduced to our town lefoie. As for the other I veteran, we are informed that he was known to the churches around before. We are given to -under- etand that Mr Cadvan Jones promised at their last anniversary that a mere sommodious building should be secured for the crowded congregations that come together to this place from year to year. Thisreat he said that 110 one was more sorry than himself that th-s promise had not been realisetl. But the idea was far from beirg abtndonn YC He was afraid LIS could not promise them additional accommodation by the next mee ing, sltbough he had no diult the presence ot TI.E popular crowned bard, whose SERVICES had Decu secured for November next, HON-D room thrn could be afforded.

Mr Thomas Walters asked 31 r W R EI waul, to retiro whilst his son was being cross-examined. Mr Edwards did 60, without being ordered by the Bench. Cross-examinc-u by Mr Walters, dl, witness said that tho defendant cam? to thern from Brighton. She had a gud reference. Ilis suspicions were aroused about a week before. hv dian you discharge her or ti-x her with the theft r— I spoke to my father about, it. Are you ill the habit of keeping suspectcd people in your employment •" — c aie not. c ale You suspccfed i.ee when she was goii g away on Satuiday that she had things belonging to you --I did. vi' b' t> AY by did nt you tax her with the theft like an hinest, man.'—I cannot answer tim. The defendant'«s bed-room was occupied while she WlOS absently Miss Fiorencc—that is her shop name, ller o\\ a name is Miss Davits, of the New Inn, I encoder. Her box was opened in her absence bv me tliir, was on Monday night ia the presence of my sister. Defendant became very Agitated at this point, and rose up in court, sat suddenly down, and gave vent to a shriek. Witness sa;d the box was secured bv a psdiock he opened it wi'h his own kej\ Miss Florence and Miss Williams were present when the box was opened. [ believe my father knew of inv doing it. 1^ ehew ed the things to my father on Tuesday night. I closed up the box on Mondiy night. I trad to put jack the in the same order. I did not wsh to conccal that I hiitl been at the box, but I d;d it naturally. My father laid the informa- tion for tne warrant on Wednesday, ,Iir Ttoinas Walters: Dii you knoíV tht In would swear that the only stole a baby cap and a 1LJ of ,:ilk ?-I knew he would chargo her with this afterwards. How d ) you know that ? Mr C NV Jones: The father himself can answer that when he comes in. 1 A\ itnes* I did not examine the defendant's letter in the box when I openel it. The Superin- tendent asktrd her for the key when she came back I d el not tell him that I had been at the box in tli- meantime. Now that I think of it, I think it was unfair of me to do so. Mr Thomas Walters Can you swear in the face of what my client has said that the cap ever belonged to you r-I can swear that we hud caps similar to it in stock. You cannot swear to it ?-I cimiot. [Demonstra- tion in court ] Another piece of silk like this could be had in Carmarthen. It is not specially manufactured for W R Edwards and Co. ?-It is r.ot. In further cross-examination, witness denied that such large pieces cf ribbon, trimming, etc, could be allowed as the heal iniiliner'a perquisites." He identified some of the other articles becanse they were cut off a piece bearing the private mark of the firm. He ccnld only say that he had similar things in stocs. The goods might be procured elsewhere- He could swear to nothing except it bore the private mark of the firm the candlestick sells at .O(l; it would cost between 7d and 71. The reed of silk has their private mark, it ells at 2d but the cost price is 16s lid per gross. Nothing m but the candlestick and the reel beard their private mark. Mr C W Jones: Are you in the habit of opening the boxes of your employees in their absence?-! am not. Did you ever do it before ?—I did not. Cross-examined by Mr Thomas Walters: Miss Williams is not very friendly with the defendant she was in tne room when the box Avas opened. My suspicions were not aroused by something told me by others of the assistant-. My suspicions were excited by some; green ribbon on her blouse. Defendant (rising) Is this it? That ue\er came out of your shop ? [Another deinonetrat; ti 1:1 court]. Cross-e.iismin?d by Mr Thomas Walters: No communication was made to me which led me to suspect the defendant. I was told of an empty box being* taken away by the defendant. Who told you of it r — My father die1. Then someone had made a communication to you which led you to suspect the defendant. Elizabeth McCarthy, a miliiiur's apprentice, was the next witness. About a fortnight ago defendant asked her to look under the table in the work-roim for a parcel and to take it to the young ladies house." Mr C W Jonas said no information hid been sworn exaept ii regard to tho baby's cap, and the piece c-f silk. He did not think they could go into other matters. —Mr W Morgan Griffiths concurred. Mr W R Edwards was then sent for, and swore an additional information in regard to several of the articles referred to in the pievious evidence. The gof els were valued in tha information at £3 Is llid. Elizabeth McCarthy, continuing, eaid that the parcel which she took to the young ladies house" contained some green and some corn-flower tulle. It cauie unwrapped, and she it it was similar to the go d> (produced). She also spoke to conveying a similar parcel underneath her jacket a week ago Miss Perry got all other joung lady to get a shawl to conceal the parcel which witness was earning Mr Walters asked what was ttc use of this eridcmce. There was nothing to prove the proper:y belonged to Mr vY R Edwards. Mr James John said that the carrying a-.vr.y had been den? surreptitiously. Mr Thomas Walters s^id if anything wrong hra been done, the witness was liable as nn accomplice- Jaii3 Morris, millinery saleswoman, said she hod a Crip in stock similar to that produced. Mr Wr R Edwards, the senior partner in the iirm, ^}>e evidence corroborating thai of his sun. fe Sillv swore positively to the cmdlestick and the reel* That was all he could swear positively to. Mr Thomas Walters: Is there a possibility or the*" tbinzs being in her box quite honestly? You would not liko to take away her character for a I^HSS candlestick and a reel. W'tness could nut answer this question. He had been informed that she had broken ens of the rules bv taking away things without permission. The artiels referred to was an empty pivte-btiard [j, lie had been informed of this by Miss tVif-iarcs. Mr C W Jones That is the young lady she is not friendly with. The witness said that he had been told by his son before this. Miss Williams had to leave the dinner- table some time before iu consequence of a conversa- tion which had taken place. Mr T. Walters How did you know that? Witness I was told so. The Mayor said the witness was a magistrate, and must know well enough this was not evidence. Witness, in further cross-examination, said that a box had been entered to Miss Perry's account—at least some box had. There was another demonstration in court at this point, The Bonick ordered it to be cleared, which was done for the most part. Witness said that he would not uudeitake to whether he were piesent when the box was opened.— Pressed by Mr Walters, he said he was not prepared to say he was not there to his knowledge.—Later on he said he was not present. The Bench then retired. On returning, and without bearing evidence or a speech for the defence, the Mayor said the Bench were unanimously of opinion that no jury would convict on the evidence. Prisoner was, therefore, discharged The result was received with tremendous applause. Defendant swooned away in court.
