Ellas Thomas, labourer, was placed at the bar, charged with having burglariously broken open and entered the dwelling-house •of Samuel Davies, watchmaker, Brynowen, in the parish ofLlsn- SiLlog"ygo" on the night of the 2-5th, or the morning of the 26th of August last, with intent to steal therefrom certain articles. It appears that on the night in question the prisoner went to- wards the prosecutor's house with a view of seeing his daughter, for whom he felt a peculiar iuterest. He opened a window for the purpose of entering the house but unfortunately for him, it was the wrong one—it was that of the room in which the father slept. The old gentleman, hearing a noise, proceeded towards the window, and finding a person in the act of entering, took a razor and in- dieted a wound on the wooer's hand. The disciple of Cupid then in ide the best of hh way home, and found that, instead of seeing :the object of his love, he was minus a portion of his thumb. Yvhen the circuinstance became known, the father of the damsel 'indicted the young man for burglary. Mr. Grove made an eloquent address in his defence, and the jury, after some deliberation, returned a verdict of Not Guilty, and the unfortunate suitor was set at liberty.
