MONMOUTHSHIRE MfCHAELMAS QUARTER SESSIONS. These Sessions commenced on Monday week. The following magistrates were on the bench. Lorm GRANVILLE SOMERSET, Chairman. C. II. Leigh, Esq., Lord —Taddy. Esq. Lieutenant Francis M'Donnell, Esq. Sir B. Hall. Bart., M.P. Thomas Fotherijill, Esq. "W. V.Williams,Esq., M.P. Thomas Reece, Esq. K. Blakemore, Esq, M.P. William Needham, Esq. J. Bailey, jun., Esq., M.P. I Rev. James Coles. Hon. William Rodney Rev. J. B. Davis. Colonel Lewis Hev. J. Irving. Charles Marriot, Esq., An item of 10s. in the account of Mr Edwin Richards, high constable for the Monmouth divi- sion, was objected to by the finance committee. It was for printing billets for the soldiers who were quartered in Monmouth, to save time, in order that the men should not be kept standing in the street after a long march, while 40 or 50 billets were being written out. Lord G. Somerset said that the charge did not appear to be warranted by the Mutiny Act, and therefore it could not be ordered. CONSTABULARY FORCE.—The resolution of last Quarter Sessionv, relative to this subject, also the proceedings at a special sessions on the same, to- gether with a letter from Lord Granville Somerset, to the Clerk of the Peace, previous to the special sessions, in which his Lordship recommends the postponement of any decision on the subjeot, until the present sessions, having been read, Lord G. Somerset, at great length, submitted his views to the bench. His Lordship went into a minute detail of the expense which the adoption of the bill would impose on the county, which he estimated at 94, 100 The number of constables which it would be in the power of the magistrates to appoint, would not be adequate to the suppression of any extraordinary riot or disturbance, if such should occur; and in those cases, it would be necessary to have recourse to the assistance of special constables, as at pre- sent. His Lordship also alluded to a difficulty arising out of the construction of the 24th clause of the act, with respect to the boroughs of Newport and Monmouth, which were included in the Muni- cipal Reform Act, which do not possess separate courts of quarter sessions, and in which it would not be in the power of the magistrates to appoint constables, while the boroughs would be liable to pay the rate levied for the support of the force. His Lordship stated that he had submitted this point to the Secretary of State for the Home De- partment, and had received a reply from Lord Nor- aaanby, in which he admitted that the point was one of difficulty, and that the opinion of the law officers should be taken upon it. Sir Benjamin Hall thought it inexpedient to adopt the act at present and would recommend that the consideration of the subject be adjourned till after next session of Parliament, when such alterations may be made in the act as it undoubt- edly required. A resolution was then passed, postponing the further consideration of the act until a future ime. The following is the substance of the letter ad- dressed to the Magistrates at the adjourned Ses- sions, by Lord G. Somerset:— Dear Sir,—As I do not intend to be at Usk on Tuesday next, I will thank you to make myexcuses to the magistrates who I hope will attend there; and I will further take the liberty of suggesting the course which I conceive it will be most expe- dient to be pursued with regard to the County Con- stables Act, which I trust will by that time have reached you, although I have not yet seen it. Col- lecting, however, its provisions troin the bill which was printed, with most of the amendments made on it in the House of Lords, I believe nothing can be done with advantage in regard to its main provi- sions until the Quarter Sessions in October next. The whole act is to be set in motion by the Justices in Sessions, (regular or adjourned) reporting to the the Secretary of State that the ordinary peace offi- cers are not sufficient for the preservation of the peace, protection of property, &e. at the same time declaring how many constables are needed, and whether for the whole county or for certain por- tions of it, and the rates of pay expedient to be given to chief and other constables. The Secretary of State is empowered to make rules for the go- vernment pay, clothing, &c., of the constables, which he may submit to the Justices, and which they may remark upon and when these rules shall have been promulgated, the Justices in Sessions are to appoint a person qualified according to the rules (and subject to the approval of the Secretary of State) to be chief constable. The number of constables is limited to one for every one thousand inhabitants, according to the last census; and counties may agree with each other to appoint the same chief constable for adjoining counties, or parts of counties. The chief constables are to have the appointment of all the other constables, subject to the approval of Justices in Petty Sessions, and also of the superintendents. He is likewise to have the power of dismissal of the constables. The dis- position and government of the constables is also vested in him, subject to such lawful orders as he may receive from the Justices in Quarter Sessions, and to the regulations of the force, as is laid down by the Secretary of State. The borough towns, with corporations under the Municipal Act, are ex- empted from the operations of this Act. But, there is a nice point as to their paying. All paid con- stables tinder local acts cease, wherever this act is brought into operation; but the appointment of parochial constables is preserved, and they may, 1 think, receive fees as heretofore, but no regular payment. Having thus stated the outline of the provisionsof this Act,it appears to me that it is one not to be acted upon without very mature deliber- ation. If once adopted you can never again get rid of it for the exertions now made by individuals and by unpaid constables will assuredly cease, never to be revived, when you shall have once esta- blished a paid and organised constabulary force. It must further be remarked that the present amount of force which may be established is totally inadequate to the preservation of the peace against such alarming assemblages as have lately been congregated, The population of Monmouthshire, according to the last census, was under 100,000. You have to deduct from that about 10,000 for New- port and Monmouth, (I am writing hastily, from memory,) that will reduce the number on which to calculate your amount of constables, of all ranks, to S9,000 thus you will have,supposing the whole of the county to be included in the arrangement, at the most, S9 constable?. It would be impossible to congregate all these on one spot; and supposing they were to be so congregated, not being in the habit of acting together in large numbers, they would have neither the physical nor the moral power to sufficient to controul or disperse two or three thousand of the mining population; and you would still require military or special constables in case of serious riots, or tumultuous meetings. I I look upon these constables, therefore, as only of use in thief-taking, and ordinary rows or riots. In that point of view they be very beneficially used, and their appointment may be expedient; but I have thought it rignt to call attention to the less favour- able view of the subject, less by expecting more from their appointment than is likely to be the fact, too little consideration should be given to the sub- ject before a determination is adapted, and too little regard paid to the heavy burden which the esta- blishment of this force must entail on the districts which are to defray the expenses, or the whole counties or only parts of counties. I may as well observe, that the districts must be the Petty Ses- sional Divisions, and not less; so that, supposing any agricultural parishes which do not require a police officer five times in the year are united in a Petty Sessional Division with a maunfacturing pa- rish, the agricultural parish will have to pay its proportion of its expense of the new constabulary force, without deriving any additional advantage in return for the burden thus cast upon it- It would, of course, be matter for very mature deli- beration, what pay might be given; but I presume one of the rules "ill be, that these constables are not to take fees, or derive advantages beyond their pay and allowances, consequently, taking all items into account, I can hardly make the average annual expense of each constable less than f 50; thus, for 89, we should have to raise yearly O £ "4450., besides the extra pay and charges of the chief constable. One may, therefore, say that thus a fourpenny rate per annum would be necessary in Monmouthshire, in addition to the heavy charges which we are about to incur for the alterations of our prisons. Before, therefore, we come to discuss this most important and most extensive subject, we shall do well to get a thorough knowledge of what is the ex- isting state of the paid police force in Monmouth- shire. To attain this object, I would propose that the Magistrates on Tuesday should confine their operations to gaining information and, in order to acquire it, inquiry should be made of the Justices of each Petty Sessions, through the medium of their respective Clerks, on the following points- 1. The number of constables (not parochial con- stables). 2. The way in which they are paid: whether by fees or regular payments, or by both. 3. The amount they receive distinguishing the amount received from fees and that which they re- ceive from regular salary, in each year. 4. The statute, if any, under which they are paid by salary, if they receive a regular salary. 5. The amount of rates levied to defray the ex- penses of constables in each parish, where consta- bles are paid from rates or from parish money. 6. The whole amount dedicated to the expenses of constables in each parish, whether from public or private sources. 7. Whether any, and if any, how many special constables have been sworn in during the last twelve months in each parish or district, according as it may be most convenient to make out the re- turn. 8. The expenses inourred by their calling out special constables, distinguishing the several pa- rishes or districts. 9. The sources whence these expenses have been defrayed, or are to be defrayed. 10. To any observations on any of the foregoing heads of enquiry a query might be added, as to the opinion of the Justices of the efficiency of the pa- rish constables. The Clerks of the seveml Petty Sessions should be directed to return answers to the Clerk of the Peace on or before the 5th of October. The Clerk of the Peace might arrange the returns in a tabular form, so as to have them printed, and in the hands of the acting Magistrates about the 11th or 12th of October; or, at all events, ready for the meeting of the Quarter Sessions on the 14th of October. The Magistrates will thus have before them full means of determining how far it may be expedient, on the 14th of October, to recommend the adoption of a paid constabulary for all parts or any parts of the county, and also the sort of rate of pay which should be suggested. Perhaps Mr Waddington would draw up these queries in a tabular form, pre- vious to the meeting on Tuesday next and, by cir- culating them in that mode (when amended and adopted), there will be more probability of the Di- visional Clerks returning replies in a regular man- ner: and their replies, therefore, will be more easily rendered into a shape fit for circulation amongst the Magistrates, when they are received. If time permitted, I would have suggested that the replies should be submitted to the Committee of Accounts, in the week preceding the Quarter Ses- sions but I fear there would hardly be time subse- quent to that meeting, to have the digest of the re- plies printed and circulated. Of course, however, these are details of which the Magistrates, after consultation with you, can form the best opinion; but I hope they will excuse me for troubling you with this somewhat lengthy exposition of my views. My excuses are also due for not being present at Usk on Tuesday but, as I feel nothing can be done besides preparing for future discussion by seeking to obtain information, either in the way suggested by me or otherwise, I think I need not incur the ex- treme inconvenience of a jouruey toUsk from hence for that sole object; but I have therefore adopted this mode of laying before the Magistrates what appears to me the most eligible course to pursue. It is a subject of great importance, to which the go- by cannot and" ought not to be given, and which we must discuss aud determine on the 14th of October next. 1 am, dear sir, yours, obediently, To A Jones, Esq. G. H. SOMERSET. NEW HOUSE OF CORRECTION.—The conveyance of the scite of the intended building, had not been perfected, as it was found that the signature of a person resident in America, was requisite, and the necessary documents had been forwarded, for the purpose of execution, but they had not yet been returned. MONMOUTH GAOL.—The report of the Visiting Magistrates stated that the gaol continued to be much crowded during the last quarter: that much drunkenness was found to prevail among the debtors, but that no case of detection had occurred that the Chartists were on the prison allowance, but that they had not been made to wear the prison dress, nor was their hair cut like that of the other pri- soners. J. F Vaughan, and J. E. W. Rolis, Esqrs., were added to the list of Visiting Magistrates. THE CHARTISTS —A petition from Vincent, Ed. wards, and Dickenson, at present confined in the County Gaol, in pursuance of the sentences passed upon them at the last Summer Assizes, was read, in which the petitioners set forth that Mr Baron Alderson, the judge before whom they were tried, expressed a wish that they should not be subjected to any other inconvenience than confinement, and that not-ithstanding they were suffering uuder a more rigorous discipline than persons of political offences, have heretofore been, that their health suffers in consequence of being confined to the pri- son diet; and praying that they may be allowed the free use of books, pens, ink, and paper, and to pro- vide their diet at their own expense. Mr Blakemore said that it would be necessary to take into consideration the statement relative to the health of the prisoners, but with respect to the free use of books, his opinion was that the indiscrimi- nate introduction of books into the prison, might lead to much mischief and inconvenience. Aftera few words from some other Magistrates, the matter was dropped. COUNTY RATE.—The returns ordered for the pur- pose of more equitably adjusting the county rate had not been made from the divisions of Newport, Christchurcb, and Bedwelty. The subject was postponed to next Sessions. Mr Gabb, clerk to the Magistrates of the Aber- gavenny division, applied for remuneration for the trouble he had b(-en put to in making the return for his division, being read, Lord G. Somerset said that if the Court had the power he thought the compensation ought to be made. COUNTY HALL.-An order was made for £50 for the purpose of providing furniture for the new rooms which had been recently added to the Court. A letter from Mr O. A. Wyatt, agent to the Duke of Beaufort, stating that his Grace had determined to raise the rent of the ground, over which the new rooms had been erected, from two guineas to five guineas per annum, was read. Mr Blakemore expressed his surprise at the com- munication he had not the remotest suspicion that the ground was not the property of the county, or he would not have consented to the expenditure of a shilling. Mr Jones said that they were yearly tenants of the Duke, and that he claimed as lord of the manor. A committee of Magistrates was appointed to in- quire into the subject, and to report to the next Sessions. SALARY OF COUXTY SunvevoR.-The Rev. R. Roberts withdrew the notice he had given of a motion te reduce the salary of the county surveyor trom £ 100 to JE50. COUNTY RATB. An order was made for a lid. rate. The Coroner's accounts were passed, and it was ordered that in future accounts the Coroner's own charges, and the additional expenses, be kept in separate columns. Mr Williams gave notice of a motion to raise the salary of the hall-keeper from five guineas to ten guineas per annum. The Court then adjourned. SECOND DAY. Several of the Magistrates who were present yes- terday attended today. Mr Summers Harford was also on the bench.

Guilty—To be impri- soned for six weeks, and kept to hard labour, and to enter into his own recognizances in the amount of Lio, to keep the peace for 12 months, and to be further imprisoned until he does so. There was a second indictment against the prisoner for an as- sault on the other constable,but no evidence having been adduced, he was acquitted. David Davis, William Davis, and John Davis, (out Oil bail) were indicted with Richard Evans, (not in custody), for violently assaulting David Morris, at the parish of Bedwelty, on the 2nd of August last. T he Jury returned a verdict ofGuilty, against David Davis and William Davis, and ac- quitted John Divis. There was a second indic- ment against the same persons, for assaulting Daniel Robert", arising out of the same transaction as the foregoing. The three prisoners were con- victed. David Davis and Will. Davis were sen- tenced to one fortnight's imprisonment on each indictment; and John Davis to one month's impri- sonment on the latter indictment.

The violent and indecent conduct of Evaus during the investigation, produced much confusion in Court. Robert Parry traversed to an indictment for an assault on John Morgan. The bills against the following persons, were ignored by the Grand Jury :_VVilliam Jones, Mar- garet Jones, Thomas Richards, Thomas Skinner, William Jones, Francis Thomas, John Wilson, George Rawles, Thomas Edmunds, and Thirsa James. In one of these cases, in which the Grand Jury had ignored the bill, when Counsel applied for costs, Lord G. Somerset said that he felt much dis- inclined to grant costs in the case referred to; and he wished that greater care would be taken in send- ing cases for trial. He wished to state publicly, that he would often take the sense of the magis- trates, as to the propriety of allowing costs in cases of ignored bills. The amount ot oosts paid by the county, was really enormous.
BRECONSHIRE MICHAELMAS QUARTER…
BRECONSHIRE MICHAELMAS QUARTER SESSIONS. (Concludedfrom our last.) These Sessions were held at Brecon on Tuesday and Wednesday week, before the followiug bench of magistrates — PKNRY WILLIAMS, Esq., Chairman. Col. Wood, M.P. Charles White, Esq. Lloyd V. Watkins, Esq. Philip P. Williams, Esq. J. Parry De Winton, Esq. W. Williams, Esq- John Ilotclikis, Esq. Tiios. flarker, Esq. Penry Wiliiatr.s, jun., Esq. Rev. Hugh Hold Walter Maybery Esq. Rev. Thos. Williains E. L. Richards, Esq. Rev. Charles Maybery It. Stretton, Esq. Rev. Thos. Vaughan W. H. Bevan, Esq. Rev. David Jones J. Jeffreys De Winton, Esq Rev. T. J. Powell Vfajor H. Price Rev. R. W. P- -Davics. Henry Lucas, Esq., M.D. Edward Lewis Richards, Esq., Barrister at Law, took the necessary oaths and qualified as Magistrate of the county of Brecon. A very respectable grand jury, of which Mr John Bridgewater, of Brecon, was foreman, having been sworn, aud the proclamation against immorality read, The Chairman addressed the grillid Jury, and said that he had the gratification of calling their attention to the pleasing contrast between the calendar of this alld the last setisiotis. There were but fjui cases, aud as far as he could judge fi-oiii the depositions, they would present no peculiar difficulty. He could now happily also congratulate them oil the fact that the excitement which had lately existed in the ma- nufacturing districts, had now, in a great measure aubsided and he hoped that the punishments which had been inflicted on those persons who had em- ployed themselves in disseminating sedition and discontent, would have a salutary effect, lu case, however, a re-action should t ike place, he had to inform them that an act of Parliament had been passed during the last session, by which magistrates were enabled to embody a constabulary police force, similar to that established in the metropolis, either in the whole county or certain districts but he trusted that there would be no need for the employment of such means. He then adverted to the act of Parlia- went relative to the returns required from surveyors of the highways, and the part of the new poor law amendment act altering the proceedings with regard to bastardy cases, and explained that in future such cases would be heard in petty sessions, thus avoiding the disgusting details so often heard in open court, but that in case the putative father wished to appeal, he might do so in the court of quarter sessions. He then said that he could lIot allow this occasion to pass without adverting tothe JO-8 the county had suffered since they had last met, by the death of their late respected chairman, Mr Hugh Bold. They were all aware, that from a very early period of his life he had devoted his talents, time, and attention to the service of his native county, they had all witnessed his assiduity in the transaction of public business, and the gentlemen sitting around him on the bench he was sure would unite with him in bearing testi- mony to his uniform courtesy and urbanity. He should not detain them any loner aud the bills would be placed immediately in their hands. James Davy and George Day, privates in the 12'h Regiment of Foot, were charged with stealinga duck, some bacon, and bread, from the premises of Mr Walter Churchey, town clerk of Brecon. Cecilia Merccr said that she was in the service of Mr Churchey on the 13th of August last on that evening there was a tluck with a piece of bacon and two loaves of bread ill a cupboard in the back yard she was the last npin the house that night, and locked the front and back doors the back door opened into the yard the doors were in the same state on the next morning; the articles mentioned were not in the yard was certain the doors were locked at night; she saw the bacon afterwards before the magistrates; she could not swear to it. Phelim Mc. Golrick, private in the 12th Foot, said that on the 12th of August he heard Day say" it would be good right to steal that bread after tattoo Day wasthen leaniugoutofa window, lookin into the adjoining yard; could see the bread from the window; when he got up next morning he saw both prisoners eating bread, and they had some of it on a table; afterwards saw Day take a bundle out under his watch coat; witness followed him, thinking he was taking away his kit; he opened it and found bacon in it; saw him afterwards put the bundle iuto a hole under the stairs. By the Court: Both prisoners were eating the bread; witness reported the facts to Captain Sturke; he had never had any quarrel with prisoners Day told him that he had thrown the rest of the bread into the privy, but had not asked an) questions that led to hia Baying so; had asked nothing about it. Alexander Toole, serjeant in the 12th, said that in consequence of an application from Jonas Williams, police officer, he accompanied him to the Lion Street Barracks to search for stolen property; found a bundle with bacon in it '(which he uow produced) concealed under a fhg under the stairs it was wrap- ped in an old shirt sleeve; found also a duck in another shirt steeve in the same place. James Gooch, a private in the 12th, was called, but the prisoners objected to his testimony being received, on the ground that he was a deserter, and had conse- quently violated an oath. Gooch was sworn, and said that Davy had conie into the cook house and asked witness to cook a duck for him; he said he was going to have a duck with green peas for dinner; he refused; in a short time alter, Divy said he did not want it cooked, he had given it a way, and he was afraid he might get into trouble about it. By the Cuurt: Had deserted, and was now under punishment for it he enlisted about eight months ago, and took an oath then does not remember the tenor of the oath it was the usual oath of a soldier's attestation. Jonas Williams, police officer, corroborated the testimony of Serjeant Toole as to finding the stolen articles. The prisoners in defence denied the statement of Gooch, and said that there was another man iu the cook house all the day in quest iou, who had heard nothing of what he asserted. They called the fol- lowing witnesses to character Captain Sturke Mid that Davy had been in his company for the last two years, a"d that his general character was very good. Day had recently joined the company, and he knew but little of him. Serjeant Toole had known Davy in the company two years, and had always found him honest and of good conduct. Day had but lately joined Captain Sturke's company. Verdiet-ot Guilty. Margaret Jones, single woman, was charged with burglariously breaking into the house of Morris Morris, at the Raseu, in the parish of Llongnnnider. Mr G. DJ vies, Crickhowell, opened the case for the prosecution. Morris Morris being called, said that he kept a beer house at Hasau in August last; on the 4th of that month prisoner was at his house with a young man; they came "bout half past two o'clock in the afternoon, and left about four o'clock togeiher; wit- ness was last up in the house that night; before he went to béd he locked the front door, and saw thAt the back door was also secured; there was a little cellar attached to the house; it had a window on which there was a shutter fastened by two mandrils (or pickaxes) thrust into the wall on the inside; he was disturbed about twelve at night by the loud barking of his dog; he got up and found a middle door fast, hut the back door wide open the dog ran out barking to the right hand, and witness saw the prisoner on Ihe left going down to a hrook which was about three vat'd* from the house • heard a noise like earthenware going over the brook; witness caught her about 200 yards off, and brought her to the house she said, my good man let nie go, 1 only wanted some bread and cheese she afterwards said do gIve me my bonnet it was dark at the time after calling up a neighbour, wit- ness went to the brook and found some bread, cheese, butter, and tobacco with the prisoner's bonnet; there were also pieces of earthenware rescmbiing the bason which had contained the butter; there was a bundle on a wall on the other side of the brook he returned and went into the cellar, and missed tobacco, bread, butter, aud cheese; had seen the tobacco there that night, but knew little about the other things; the thiugs found in the brook were of the same kind as those lost, but would not swear to them; the window shutter had been token air apparently with force by the use of an iron pickaxe lying- outside, marks of which might be seeu on the shutter; prisoner asked for the bundle and took her shoes off putting others on out of the bundle. By the Court: The mandrils were fast in the wall; does not know if the woman would be strong enough to remove them; he thought there must be some person with her. Cross examined by the prisoner: Her sister lives within 100 yards of P'o»ecutor's house. John Nicliolis, constable produced the bread, to- bacco, &e., fuund il the .brook, and said that the prisoner was given into his charge; she made a statement to him; he had not used any threat or held out any inducement to her; when he saw her first he told her that he had seen her before, and told her he was obliged to make her his prisoner asked her if ¡;,he was aware ot the ch:lrg-c against her; sh replied she was, and that she knew she did it; she said a man had broken the placc opell, and had thrown the things into her apron, and that he had been tempted by seeing the tobacco in such an open place in t ie day time; on the road to Crickhoweli she said she knew' she should be transported; had to be so in consequence of being crossed in wished love. Cross examined by the prisoner: Did not say that it wou!d be better for her to confess he knew much better than to do so. The prisoner said in her defence that she was going to her sister's house, when she was fiightened by the dog, and ran away from it she denied making any statement to the coustabie.

Samuel Goode, of Glasbury for an assault by ducking.in the River Wye. Mr lliggins, of Hay, stated the case for the pro- secution with his usn,,1 ability, ancl callecl, Zephaniah Price Connell, who said that he was an apprelllice or April last, he obtained leave from him to go out for the purpose of fishing ,"le r'ver Wye he bot rowed a rod having nOlle of his own; It was a very small rod he went to the nver and fished up to a field calld Tile Heli. whcre Llanigon brook empties into the Wve; he was fishing there; saw both on the lands of Mr De Wmtou Mr Goode who is gamekeeper to Mr De \Vinton came up to witness who was then in the river Oil Sheephouse side; Mr Goode was then on the bank, and asked who gave him leave to fish there he replied not any one. aud said if he was doing harm he would go away; wituess then drew towards defendant he said "yon come here fishing every day," and witness replied he was never there before he had not been there before Mr Goode then asked for the Glib, wituejs took off his bag and gave it him when he looked at the fish and then returned them, and said "give me your rod witness threw the rod backwards into 'the river; defendant then came into the water and caught witness by the collar and threw him into the rivier; he then put him under the water; he forced him to the bottom on his back; he did so repeatedly moulh was full of water so that he could not tull out; the witei, was above knee deep; the skin was rubbed off witness's elbows and his back was hurt; defendant did not help him out after but left him there; when he ducked him the last time he said give me the rod now had not the rod in his hand then or befor(, had thrown it away it had sunk in the water; it was a yard or two oil'; he went out first; witness in tryiug to get up the bank fell twice; he was much frightened he then went toward home; had a bad cold that day; he felt just starved for two or three days. Cross exekrnined Had told the whole truth; had caught fish that morning; William Powell was on the other side; it was stillish water; Powell was 011 the Rtream; Mr Smart was taking PowflPs ro(] at the time this happened would think Powell was seventy or eighty yards above Powell had not gone into the river to cross; Smart came down the bank to Powell; Smart had taken the rod before Goode came to wit- uess thinks so; Goode came into the water; Goode did not fill into the water in trying to get the rod; witness will swear he did not try to trip Goode down iuto the water; Goode did not try to get the rod until he had first ducked witness; witness had never been fishing there before, and had no rod or nets; he had at home a cleeching net borrowed from Mr Trusted; did not believe that he was the dread of the keepers of the neighbourhood, or that they were watching for him Goode was not down flat in the water at all. William Powell, labourer, of Hay, staled that he was fishing on the 13th of April, and that after Smart had taken his rod, he had gone about three yards iuto the river with the intention of crossing to ask Mr Goode for it back, when he saw the circum- stances complained of; tie corroborated the evidence of Connell, and swore to' four duckings; he said he was then about 150 yards off. He was subjected to aclose and searching cross examination by Mr Spencer, but his evidence re- mained unshaken. John Price Counell, father of prosecutor, said he was a skinner, carrying on business in the town of Hay; he corroborated the evidence of his son as to the permission to go out fishing, and his wet state, &c., when he came home; he said he believed he had not yet recovered from the effect of cold. On his cross examination he denied that his son had ever run away from him; he had been from home hince this affair but with his consent. Mr Spencer, of Hay, addressed the jury for the defendant, and called Thomas Smart, under keeper, to Mr De IVinton, who stated that on the day in question, he accom- panied MrGoode down the river for a boat, which had been left the preceding day; he stated the cir- cumstances much the same as the other witnesses, with the exception that he deposed before Mr Goode touched the boy he reached out his bund to take the rod from the water that at that moment he fell into the water as if pushed by the boy, and that when he rose from the water he caught the boy and drew down once only; that when the boy was going up the bank, he saw his fish fall, and saw him stoop to pick them up; he further stated that he had mea- sured the distances since, and found that Powell was 273 yards from the spot and witness 160 yards. In the course of his cross examination, he said that he knew the spot where Powell stood by a tuft of grass on the bank, off which Powell stepped into the water, and that the tuft had not been removed by any change since; that the measurement took place three weeks ago, and that Mr Goode assisted in the measuring, which was effected with a piece of twine. He stated that there were notice boards, prohibiting fishing, placed within 200 yards of the spot, but there were none within the parish of Hay, Mr lIigg-ins addressed the jury in reply. Verdict-Giiilty. Mr Spencer addressed the court in miiigation of sentence, and put iu an affidavit of (I -f,-ndatit, alleg- ing provocation by the prosecutor tripping him into the water. Mr Higgins replied. The Magistrates retired to their private room, and. after a consultation which lasted .1 considerable time, returned, when the chairman (Col. Wood) passed sentence ill)oti the' at life bar thus -Samuel Goode, the jury having property convicted you for an aggravated assault; we have taken into our con- sideration the whole of the facts of the case, with a disposition to impose such a fine upon you as will answer the ends ot'justice. \Ve have considered the painful position in which you at piesent stand and have also considered that the party injured will not receive any of the fine, as that will go to the Queen. The law places it: your hands, as a keeper, very strong powers, in authorizing you to take guns from parties under the game laws, and rods and nets from parties trespassing in fishing; but such acts should always be done with great care and lenity and keepers shoutd never exceed the powers which* the law has giveii itictit. The court adjudge, that you he fined the sum of ten pounds and be imprisoned until siicli fine is paid. The fine was immediately paid. Mr Lawrence applied for an order for costs in- curred by two magistrates of Brecon, in consequence of service of a notice of appeal on them untlui the licensing act; the appeal having been abandoned the costs were ordered.

THE WEATHER AND ITS EFFECTS. — The skill of the medical practitioner is not onlv directed to the cure of disease, but be it said, to the honour of the profession that they also point out to the afflicted the means whereby many diseases of serious magni- tude may be averted, or the effects ot which consider- ably alleviated. But in a variable climate like ours, although the ad vise laudably given iiiiiv I)e tolerably well attended to, it is altogether impossible to pre- vent such diseases abounding in great multiplicity and virulence. Hence those painful afflictions, Gout and Rheumatism, have recently prevailed in a most unprecedented degree; but, happily, through the ti-e of that most excellent medicine, Blair's Gout and Rheumatic Pills, the patients have, for only a shoit period of time, been prevented from following their sundry avocations.
