CARMARTHEN. CONCEALING THE BIRTH OF A CHILD.—Elizabeth Thomas, a aingle woman, living with her parents at a cottage called Tycoch, on the farm of Peulan, in this parish, was brought to the Town- hall, on Thursday last, before W. G. Thomas, Esq., Mayor, aLd E. H. Stacey, Etq, charged with concealing the birth of her bas- tard child. The prisoner's father and mother 'positively asserted that the child was dead when born, but tiny acknowledged that she had made no preparations towards her lying-in, neither were they uware that she was in the family way, as she had been always sickly, and was of weak intellects. An inquest was held on the fody in the Town-hall, before John Hughes, Esq., coroner, and a ▼ try respectable jury. A post mortem examination had been made by Messrs, Rowlands and James, surgeons, but from the de* composed state of the body it Was impossible to make such a satis- factory examination as could have been wished. Neither of the medical gentlemen could state with certainty that the child was born alive, but both agreed that it was alive at or a little before its birth. There was no doubt that the woman, Elizabeth ThonlfUj, was the mother of the child, or that it was a full grown child. The jury returned the following verdict That the child was found dead, but whether it lived apart from its mother or not, it did not appear."
