ABEIIYSTWITII, On Tuesday weplr, the 20th instant, at the town-hall, Aber- ystwith, two regular thorough-bred tramps, calling themselves D. farcell and Joseph Jones, were brought up by police constable William Jones, charged with going about the town begging. Prom the testimony of the constable, both the prisoners were thorough scamps. Parcell told him that he would sooner take the road" than go to the workhouse, and Joseph Jones said that he must either beg or steal. There was money found on them, which shows that they could not be begging from want. Being unable Jo give any account of themselves, they were sentenced to one mouth's imprisonment in Cardigan gaol, with hard labour. On the person otJoseph Jones was found a letter purporting to be a testimonial from a medical gentleman from Merthyr, which from ti penmanship, orthography, and etymology, proves the extreme gullibility of the public to be taken in by such a transparent im- posture. For the benedtof such of our readers as have not seen such documents, we copy the above so far as it can be copied, but the flourishes and embellishments of the penmanship defy an imi- tation— The Bearer, Josheph Jones: This is to certify, that Jos. Jones, under my Care this 6 months dischargd with the diseased of the knee-joint Utiable to follow his employment, has been a collier in Ddwlass 'Works, beatig 4 years under Sir John Gass, he his born a very saber industerous carrector, and I believe that he his forcd to trafle the country for his lively wood. Signed by my hand this day, 1 June, 1848, Doctor Jos. James, High Street, Merthyr Tydwell, in the county of Glamorganshire. At the bottom of the previous document, apparently in the gamp's own hand Joseps Johnos. I am sorry to trouble my brethren, a wife and 2 children for a$sistance for i ham a long way from home. Sighned by my hand, 1 day of June, 1848.— Welshman.
