Jttomnouthgfure. The Lord Chief Baron and Mr Justice Coleridge are the Judges for the Oxford Circuit, the ensuing Summer Assizes. Though we have given the Worshipful John Frost, Esq., the Mayor of Newport, a long respite, he has not escaped our remembrance. Our respect for the nffiee. he so nnworthilv mic L- r0ciram..H rm„, "y JIH. >4.3 .IUIII speaking in the strong language of remonstrance; but, as the Burgesses of Newport are still without their rights, as they are too poor, or too unwilling, to go to law, and as they have been accustomed to consider the GUARDIAN" as their friend, we again ask Mr Frost, in the name of common decency, in the* name of common honesty, why be withholds from persons who so greatly need it, and who are legally entitled to it, the money which he has received onlv as a Trustee ? Oh, that this hard hearted mall-and where is the man whose heart Radicalism has not hardened into the substance of the nether millstone, could be softened by any appcnl that could be made to him, and that if he has never tasted the luxury of doing good, he would yet purchase the comfort of doing what is just. The blessings of him that was ready to perish was upon him, and he caused the widow's heart to sing for joy." Think of this record, your worship. We solemnly declare, that if we bad an interest in this fund, we would give Mr Frost no rest —we would weary him with our "continual coming;" and if we could not shame him into the performance of a duty, we would extort justice by importunity. We know that this plan once succeeded, and for an unholy purpose, with one who "feared not God neither regarded man;" and, surely the widow's cry should not fail to pierce the ears, and soften the obduracy, of one who is manifestly not insensible to the applause of men—nor, we charitably hope, to the approbation of his Maker. This money must be distributed, or we must have a satisfactory reason why it is withheld. We believe that the large balance in the hands of Mr Frost, has recently ac- cumulated. Many of our readers are aware of the forcible removal, by the competent authorities, of obstructions to the Highways, erected by Messrs. Harford and Co-, at EbbwV ale and Sirhowy, and which were demolished, after a ioleiit resistance, on the loth of May. In the execution of this public duty the Riot Act was read more than once. But law and right, on behalf of the public, were victorious. On one side of the highway called Heol y Mwyn are two dwelling houses, and between them and the centre of the highway Messrs. Harford and Co. have lately erected a dwelling house so near them as almost to exclude the light, and pre- vent the possibility of their being occupied. Occupied, however, they are, and the tenant of one of them has unfortunately a wife in what the ladies term an inte- resting situation," and who is on that account unable to escape from her dwelling. She is, in fact, "prema- turely confined," and that by Messrs. Harford and Co. The liberation of one prisoner can only procure the escape of another. The poor woman cries, after the fashion of Sterne's starling, that she" cannot get out" Sue is like the runaway Nun, Constance of Beverley, who was built up in a liviii, tomb, as described by the Poet of Marmion. She is, however, waiting until law, by a forcible process, or the accoucheur by his obstetric skill, shall effect her safe deliverance." Monmouth monthly market, on Wednesday, was well attended, and well supplied in point of numbers; but there was no sale, except for such things as were fat and in good condition; and for want of more grass the lean kine every where abound. MONMOUTHSHIRE IRON AND COAL CONIPAN-Y.-WC have the pleasure of informing our readers, that the new town now building for the Monmouthshire Iron and Coal Company, at Lower Ebbw Vale, is to be (letioiniiiated I Victoria,, in honour to the Princess Victoria. Application for the consent of her R. II. to this procedure was made through Sir John Conroy, from whom the following reply was received per returii of post:— Kensington Palace, 3d June, 1837. Sir,-I have laid before the Duchess of Kent vour letter of the 2d instant, signifying the wish of the Direc- tors and Shareholders of the Monmouthshire Iron and Coal Company that a new town tliev are about to build in connection therewith should be denominated 4 Victoria after HcrHojal Highness the Princess Victoria. Her Koyal fliglinesi colntnaridq me to request you will assure the Director? aud Shareholders that she has much gratilication in acceding to their request. I have the honour to be. Sir, Your most obedient Servant, JOHN CONROY. Roger Hopkins, Esq. &c. &c. &c. North Paiadc, Bath. POLICE. At a Petty Sessions, for the division of Bedwellty, held at the Town liall, in the town of Tredegar, on Wednesday, the 31st Mav, 1S37, before Samuel Homfray, Edmund Williams, and Joseph Davies, Esqrs., tll following persons were convicted of the offences with which thev were charged :— James James, of the- parisll of Bedwellty, retailor of beer, for having, on the "tb of May, 1837, kept a disorderly house.0' Penalty 40 shillings, costs 11 shillings. Henry Workman, of the parish of Bedwellty, victualler, for having, on the 14th of May 1837, kept a disorderly house, contrary to the terms of his license. Penalty 20s. and costs lis. Henry Workman, of the parish of Bedwellty, victualler, for having on the 8th May, 1837, cpt a disorderly house, contrary to the terms of his license. Penalty "20s., costs lis. Richard Recs, of the parish of Bedwellty, labourer, for unlawfully assaulting Gwenllian Owen, of the same parish, singlewoman, on the 2stli May, 1837. Penalty I Os., costs I Is. Walter Walter, Daniel Jones, Rosscr Thomas, Henry Richards, and Wm. Bowen, colliers, of the parish of Bedwellty, were fined in the penalties of 5s. and costs, for drunkenness. Great praise is due to Mr W. W. Homan, the police superintendant, stationed at the town of Tredegar, for the great and manifest improvement he has, by the strict performance of bis arduous duty, occasioned iu the habits of the colliers and miners of that populous district. Before his services commenced, the town was notoriously, and particularly on Sundays, the scene of drunkenness, indecency and every other immorality but, now it may be questioned, whether the Radical town of Mprthyr Tydvil, or a:.v other town in the Kingdom, is more orderly or respectable.
