BRECON. A CORRESPONDENT states that Thomas Protheroe Price, Esq., the mayor of Brecon, has ordered a regular supply of coal for the iKe of the Voluntary subscriptional school" at Blaenau Gwent, ••• a favour which will be duly appreciated by the. pupils and their teacher and particularly when they will have to attend to their arduous but pleasant labours from nine o'clock, a.m., to nine o'clock, p.m., during the cold weeks of the winter. This useful institution, commenced about two years and a half ago, has been maintained hitherto by the powerful and active operations of the voluntary system, and is likely to be sustained for the future upon the same noble principle. PETTY SESSIONS, MONDAY, AUG. 2.-(Before T. P. Price) Esq., Mayor, J. P. De Winton, Esq., and Thomas Meredith, Esq., — William Jones was summoned for noisy and uproarious con- duct in the streets, to the- great annoyance of the peaceable inha- bitants. Police-constable Jones proved the fact, and defendant who did not make his appearance was fined 5s., and in default of payment it was ordered that he be committed to the stocks. Thomas Tustian summoned the stewards of the Ancient British Friendly Society for illegally detaining the sum of ten shillings due to him as a sick member. The stewards proved payment to the treasurer. The treasurer's wife, a highly respecsable woman, deoosed to paying ;a little girl, the daughter of complainant, on Friday, the 7th of July last, the sum in dispzite. A book was also produced in which an entry of the payment was made. This was strongly denied by complainant's wife and daughter (com- plainant himself being from home at the time). The magistrates after a long investigation, and the admission as evidence of cor- respondence which passed between Tustian and his wife, evi- dence of a very questionable nature, in a legal point of view, made an order against the society for 10s. the amount claimed with costs. Mr. Bishop appeared for the complainant.
