INSOLVENT DEBTORS' COURT. On Wednesday last, a sitting of the Insolvent Debtors' Court was held at the Town-hall cf this town, before Chief-Commissioner H. R. Reynolds, Esq. Eight insolvents were brought up, four of whom had been on bail. Their cases were disposed of as follows:— William Williams, of Merthyr Tydfil, beer-seller, at the suit of Ebenezer Williams.—Discharged. William Meredith, of the same place, beer-seller, at the suit of Reps Rees.- Discharged. David Thomas, of Bridgend, beer-seller, at the suit of Messrs. Riddle and Dew.—Discharged. Lewis Jones,, of Newbridge, collier, at the suit of Robert Bell, one of the public officers of the Na- tional and Provincial Bank of England.— Discharged. Charles James Morris, of Swansea, auctioneer, &c., at the suit of Thomas Moore.—Discharged. Thomas Simon, of N ewbridge, collier, at the suit Evan Davies. Mr. Grover appeared to oppose the discharge of the insolvent on behalf of the detaining creditor, for concealing a part ot his furniture, but it appeared upon examination that the whole of his etfects were not worth the sum which th° insolvent was entitled to by the Act.—Discharged. John Rees, of Llangefelach, shopkeeper.—Re- manded. Thomas Walters, the younger, of Swansea, shop- keeper. Mr. Morgan applied to the Court for an extension of the insolvents bail.—Remanded for that purpose.

( Before the Mayor, and the Rev. T. Siacey.) DISORDERLY CHARACTERS- Two prostituleli were f'ned i'or disorderly conduct in the public streets. His Lordship said that in all future cases imprisonment should follow. A BRUTE OF A HUSBAXD. Thomas Butty was charged by his wile with assaulting him- Complainant stated that herself and her husband did not live together, but he would Neither allow her anything nor let her do a day's work to maiatain herself. On one occasion he had knocked her down. The defendant, an ugly looking Patlander, denied the charges, ultimately the magistrates ordered him to enter into his own recognizances in £ 10 to keep tke peace. THE GOOSE AGAIN! Mrs. Rees who a short titne since applied to the Wiagistrates on behalf of her stray bi'd, again be sought advice aad assistance. It will be remembered tliiX on the occasion of ber present appearance, Mrs. It.eg had been premised the assistance of Air. Stock- dale, but it seemed then Amy, the lady, who bad posgegsionof the bird had dared the police, and set the magistrates at defiance, and, said Mrs. Rees, Amy declares I shan't have my goose. Mrs. Rees then told how her daughter went one day to Amy's and asked to look at the goose quite in a friendly way, how her said artful daughter wlieu she had got it in Poggessinn bore off the bird in triumph how Amy *eut her flock of geese down to Mrs. Rees's yard, and how the goose in question was trepanned by the other Wds. The magistrates said the case was not within their j urisdiction .be party who detained it claimed 't until half a cr wn had been paid indeed weut so 14ir as to say that the goose had been bought from her "ncj not paid for; poor Mrs. nees Ielt the room, ex- Preillg her determination to catch the goose on the ?'yj <voast it with a modicum ol sage and onious, and ^-vite Amy to dine off it. THURSDAY. Our new Mayor, James Lewis, Esq., took his seat the bench, but no case worthy ol note occurred. We eannot allow this opportunity to pass by with- I lOut recording our sense of the uniioriu kiudness, tirbanity, ar-d truiy gentlemanly conduct of the late 'ayor, D. fcvans, Esq. He retired from the '"ayoralty carrying with him the good will ntJ the real respect of all paities. As a magistrate .t tuan, he has earned -1 golden opinions" F..r Olorstjves" we caa only say that we lost sight of the ^gistrate, in* the friend who afforded to a comparative ganger every assistance in those courts overwhiih he presided. THKATRT.—J. Mathews Richards, Esq., of Roath, patronized the house on Monday evening last, when the best audience of the season testified to the uni- versal respect in which that gentleman is held by our fellow townsmen, and the gentry of the neighbour- hood. The play was The School for Scandal, and very well got up it was. Of the performers, we would particularly mention Miss Ellis, Mrs. Macna- mara, Mr. T. Green, and Mr. Leclercq. The former lady did full justice to the part of Lady Teazle, and confirmed our opinion, that Miss Ellis ought not, to please any ones vanity or caprice, be put into the back ground. Mr. Leclercq's Afr. Moses was admirable. He made much of a trifling part. But decidedly the best acting of. the evening was that of Mr. W. Angel, as Sir Peter Teazk, and of Mr. T. Green, who played Charles Surface; the latter needs no praise of oars. The au- dience frequently applauded its excellence. We hope to see this gentlemen oftener on our boards. We beg to recall our words,—to hear of him on the Cardiff stage we mean for in consequence of giving an honest and fair opinion of certain per- formers in the last Gttardian (an opinion which. we are happy to say, is a general one amongst the frequenters of the theatre), we have been struck off the free-list by the management: an unusual course certainty. But we would rather never witness a performance than indiscriminately praise or blame the actors. These are not the days for gagging the press. Mrs. Macready may perform" Juliet if she pleases, the" Leading Tragedian may do Romto, and the whole company may stand on their heads if they choose, but we are not to be tied down by a free-admission' to mere approbation. We get nothing by the theatre; and cannot screw up our dramatic courage to praise absurdity, or cry at farcical tragedy. One thing shows the justice of our .criticism.—The gentleman who played Macbeth last week walked over the boarde as Trip; in the School for Scandal, on Monday evening. That character iwe have seen better done; but we are bound to admit, that it was not studied, or read up for. We have a I little bird,' who will chirp about the boxes; and the public, although the Editor of the Guardian is not on the list,' shall not be the loser.
