A paragraph having lately appeared in the Morning Herald and other papers, stating that Lord Stuart de Decies bad embraced the Roman Catholic Religion, we have much pleasure in communicating to our readers the following letter, addressed by W. V. Stuart, Esq., M.P., for Waterford, to the Editor of the Morning Herald, contradicting in direct terms so unfounded a rumotir:- To the Editor of the Morning Herald. Sir,— By the kindness of a relative my attention has this day been drawn to a paragraph which, be informs me, appeared lately in the Morning Herald, in the following terms :— It is rumoured that Lord Stuart de Dceies and a learned judge in Ireland have embraced the Roman Catholic religion. A provincial journal states that the former has openly avowed his recantation from Protestantism." 1 feel it my duty, in the absence of my brother on the continent, to lose no time in asserting, in the strongest and most positive manner, that so far as that rumour refers to my brother, it has no truth in it whatever; and that there is not the slightest founda- tion for such a statement as that my brother has adopted, or has any inclination to adopt, the Roman Catholic religion. Having said this much, I have only, in conclusion, to request that, as you have assisted in giving circu- lation to this report, you will, in fairness; give im- mediate publicity to this my denial of its truth, and I have the honour to remain your obedient servant, WILLIAM VILLIERS STUART. Castlotown, Carrick-on-Suir, March 27. .## TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE AND GUATIDIAN. SIR,-A Correspondent of the Merthyr Guar- diani, under the signature of Veraxstate* in your paper of the 28th ultimo, that "no ac. count of the Coroner's proceedings in regard to the death of a man of the name of G-obbins, (not Gibbons,) had appeared in a public print;" "that the public are quite in the dark as to whether the man was murdered or not, and whether the Magivirateii and cotistat)IeB have done their duty;" and that there are strange rumours afloat with reference to the conduct of ihe Bridgend authorities." Now, air, it appears to me the censure of your friend Verax'* is rather indiscriminately levelled, and without much regard to the signature he assumes. The case is shortly thus on the night of Wednes- day the 1st of January last, the deceased Gubbins got into a squabble on the road between Pyle and New. ton Down with the accused Thomas William*, who, having got the worst of itiesetiiffe, rodeoff, threaten- ing "to be with Gubbins before he got home." Gubbinll then proceeded with his cart on his way home, till he reaching about a quarter of a mile on the Coychurch side of Bridgend, about 12 o'clock at flight, where he was again stopped and most cruelly beaten by three men; the attack was so sudden, and the night so dark, that at the moment neither he nor Ilia sou, (a boy who was with him about the age of 14,) could for certainty identify the parties; the Bridgend policeman, in a very short time came to the assistance of Gubbins attracted by iiiercries ol the boy, took him to a neighbouring house, and t-oon after sent him home in his own cart. Two days after, on Friday the 3rd of January, Thomas Williams applied to the clerk of the Bridgend magis- trates for a summons against Gubbins for the alleged assault at Newioo Down, and subsequently on the same day Gubbins alllo came for a warrant against Williams, whom, from information he had obtained, he then suspected of being the person who, with two others, had made the murderous and cowardly attack upon him. The ei-oss summonses having issued as a matter of course, and Gubbins, all ex- tremely strong and powerful man, having in a degree recovered from the primary effects of the b'ndgeoning, was able to come to Bridgend on the Siturday, where, through the intervention of their friends, the two then met, and the affair was settled without coming before the Magistrates, by Williams paying to Gubbins a sum of money as a compensa- tion for the injures inflicted on him, and also defray- tag all the expenses which had been incurred. In all tBese proceedings the two accomplices with Williams, however suspected, were not identified; and the matter not having been brought before the magistrates, they could have nothing to do with the compromise which had been agreed upon between the principals themselves and their mutual friends, and nothing more was heard of the affair for six or ,seven weeks. About the middle of February, how- ever, Gubbins, who had for five or six weeks after the attack and compl-omlae-,golle to his work as usual, though not with his wonted vigour, became so much worse that he was oblilled to give it up, and call iii medical advice it is however to be feared he delayed doing this too long, and on the. 4th of March he died of a brain fever, the effect, as pronounced by the surgeon who made a post mortem examination 01 the body, of the violent blow," which had been in- flicted on his head. On Thursday the 5th March, the day after Guhbin's death, the coroner who was attending the assizes at Swansea, having been ap- prized of the event in the usual way, fixed the follow- ing Monday for holding the inquest, and iu the mean time, directed a povt mortem examination to be made of the body the inquest was opened on the day fixed, and, doubtless for sufficient reason was subse- quently adjourned for a fortnight, during which time I can venture to assert that neither the ma- gistrates," "the constables^" or "the Bridgend authorities," were neglectful of their duty in endea- vouling to sift the mutter; and on the day of the adjourned inquest held at Coychurch, one of the magistrates, having learnt thut the accused had obtained the assistance of an able professional gentleman for his defence, and that the widow and family of the deceased were likely to be unrepre aented at the enquiry, attended the whole of the inquest for the sole purpose of watching and sup- porting the cause of the widow, the fatherless and p iblic justice. After a prolonged and patient t x- a ninaiion, the verdict of the jury was Mail- is AUghter under aggravated eircu,staticea" against Thomas Williams, Robert Thomas, and William David. On this verdict I shall not comment further than by saying, I conceive it to have been a merciful one as regards Williams; but I cannot refrain from expressing my unfeigned astonish- ntent at learning that none of the parties have yet been apprehended or committed; and with the foregoing helps and corrections, as to dates and l 'eave it to your friend "Verax," or "the J>u le, 'o fix the blame of neglect or connivance, if ■any there be, on ,he right shoulders. 1 am Sir, yours, &c., ROBERT KNIGHT.

Since my arriva in town, I have received a letter from the Lord Lieu- tenant of the county, covering a letter addressed to him by her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department (Lord Nt)r,na[)bv), ;,rid I.thlllk it better to mention that circumstance now, seeing so many persons present, rather than doing so p y in the magistrates' room more particularly as It COII- cerns the public generally. The letter from Lord Normanby is dated the 14th of February, 18010. I will now read it to you. [This letter rela e suppression of seditious publications, an and profane language at public meetings, an i already well circulated in the public journa .J though this letter is addressed generally to the m g trates of tho county, yet it concerns every person every person ought to endeavour to put down seditious and profligate publications, and seditious and profatie language, upon all occasions. M yseH, snd, 1 am sure, all my brother magistrates on the beiuih, would be obliged to any person who would furnish information, whereby such publications and language would be suppressed. It is unnecessary for me to detain you longer, and you will now retire to consider the bills which will be laid before yon. The Magistrates then retired for the consideration of the county business. A Requisition to the 8herlff for convening a county meeting for adopting an address to the Queen, Prince Albert, and the Duchess of Kent, congratu- lating them on the late auspicious event, was signed by the whole of the magistrates assembled. Gaolers' accounts were passed and signed as were also the magistrates', and other journals. Mr Booker and Mr Windsor Richards were ap- ponted two additional visiting justices of the Cardiff prison; and, Mr Dillwyn and Mr Samuel Davies were appointed additional visiting justices for the Swansea prison. Upon the coroners' accounts being presented for being passed, a discussion took place as to alleged irregularity in the proceedmgs ot coroners, in two instances; one respecting the death of a man in the parish of Margam, and the other respecting an in. quest, lately held in the parish 01 Coychurch, which ended in the proceedings being referred to a com- mittee of the following gentlemen :-C. R. M. Talbot, Esq., J. E. Bicheno, Esq Grifhth Llewellyn, Esq., Rev.' R. Knight, and Richard Franklen, Esq who are to make their report at the next Quarter Sessions. The expences ol a constabulary lorce for Caerphilly and Miskin were allowed. ''ler,e was here a discus- sion on the subject of establishing a general consta- bulary force, which was commenced by Mr Franklen. It ended in nothing being adopted: Mr Nicholl having recommended that the question should be postponed until the late ol two bills on the subject, now before parliament, should be ascertained. The treasurer's accounts were passed. The consideration of the subject of providing a Lunatic Assylum, was ajourned. On the motion of J. Bruce Prjce, Esq., the towns of Caerphilly and Aberdare were added as polling places to the other five already appointed. The parishes of Aberdare, Llanwonno, Ystradyfodwg and Rigos, to poll at Aberdare. The parishes of Gelligaer, Llanvabon, Esjlwvsilati, Rudrcy, Van, and Rhyd gwern, to poll at Caerphilly. Mr Talbot objected to the proposition on the score of additional expence to the candidates; but was most triuirfphantly answered by Mr Booker, on this and other points. On a division, there appeared 28 magistrates for Mr Bruce Pryce's motion, and three against it; viz., MrTalbof, the Rev. J. M. Traherne, and Mr Franklen. The Chairman of course did not vote; and, Mr Bicheno, desired to be neutral. Upon the reassembling of the Court, the following appeals were disposed Of: Against an Order *for Renwi-al. -,rile parish of South Molton, Devonshire, appellants; and the parish of Neath, respondents. — Respondents did not appear. Serv it-o of notice, and grounds ol appeal, duty proved. Order of removal quashed, and, under some peculiar circumstances, full costs allowed. Against an Order for Reijoppi -St. John's.

That lie did not pay rent and taxes for a year. Second ground abandoned.—[This case excited some interest, and we regret we cannot spare room this week for the publication of the evidence in full, as supplied by our reporter.] The Court after considering 'or some time, slid, that although there was a good deal ol doubt about the cafe, the court was of opinion that the order ought to be coiilfrixied," Order of removal confirmed accordingly. Mr Richards then applied to the Court for a f,ase for the opinion of the Court of Queen's Bench; wlnc.i, after some discussion was refused; the Court being of opinion that no point of law was assigned as a ground for such casc. Tiie Grand Jury were now dismissed prisoners having been first brought to the ar ant arraigned. Appeal against a Poor Rate.—Tho har o un.

Sentence- Ann Watkins, 10 vears transportation; Elizabeth Lewis. 15 years' transportation. Elisabeth Harris, who p!ended guilty to a clnrge of stealing on the 19;|| of February Ift«t-, 12s., the property of Michael Keenan, was sentenced to two calendar months' imprisonment. Henry Hedges, awl Elizabeth lluUock, who were on Friday found guilty of a burglary, were placed at the bar to receive sentence; but," upon tile pi-isotier Hedges stating that if ||(. jm,| jnonev he should have been able to produce witnesses to prove tnat he slept .es to ill'o%'(" t at Newport on the night of the I 5th of January, his Lordship ordered the prisoners to be aain remanded till Monday morning. George Bowen, 18, John Edwards, 32, and IVm. Howelfs, 22, on beiijir placcd at the bar for breaking into the dwelling house of Charles Bowen, on the night of the 21st of Januarv last, and stealing therein a variety of articles of wearing apparel, silver spoons. ((-C., Severally withdrew tiie" plea of Not Guilty, which they had Oil Friday entered to the charge and pleaded Guilty.—The prosecutor recommended the prisoners to mercy, and said be should be willing to take back Bowen into his employ. His Lordship addressing the prisoners, remarked that as the prose- cutor had interposed on their behalf, he should not inflict so severe a punishment as be should have other- wise felt it his duty to do but reminded them that should they ever appear at the bar of justice for a similar offence, the same circumstances would have no itifluct)(-e--tliev would undoubtedly be sent out of the country. —To be each imprisoned and kept to hard labour for one month. John Richards, 42, for stealing a lamb, the property of John Langley, of Shirenewton. The prisoner's counsel addressed the Jury, enforcing that the pos- session of the carcass had not been proved, and that nothing was more probable than that some other in- dividual had stolen the lamb, and deposited it under the prisoner's faggots. nuilty- The prisoner, in defence, said that he knew nothing of the carcass being near his premises. In consideration of a good charac- ter which had been sent in by the person with whom prisoner served his apprenticeship, his Lordship said he should not transport him, but sentence him to one years' imprisonment and hard labour. Charles Young, alias Nibleft, 20, for stealing a mare the property of John Sharpe, of Thorn well, in this county.—Mr William Prosser, surgeon of the gaol, on being sworn, stated that the unfortunate prisoner had about ten days ago an attack of influenza, and during the last three days had manifested symptoms of ill- sanity. [to was at present insane, but he believed the insanity to be ollly of a temporary nature. Ver- dict—Prisoner is of an unsound mind, and therefore 0 incapable of takiu his trial. Imprisoncd till her Ma- jesty's pleasure be known. — [This miserable creature presented a wretehed appearance. His head was enve- loped in a blue cotton handkerchief, and his wildly gazing eyes wandering about the Court were occa- sionally fixed on all object, to which he nodded his head and addressed incoherent expressions. His deplorable condition appeared to excite-great sym- pathy.] Arthur Jones, 47, stood charged with the man- slaughter of Evan Rees, late of the parish of Bed- wellty. David Phillips deposed that he lived at Bedwellty. He had been drinking in a public house with the deceased, the prisoner, Rees Williams, and John Edwards. He recollected a quarrel between the deceased and the prisoner, respecting a river which ran between two counties. Evan Rees acted like a blackguard, he struck Jones on the side of his cheek. Arthur Jones was smoking a pipe at the time. lie took it out of his mouth and struck deceased on tho brow of his left eye. They then got up to fight, and witness saw blood and part of the pipe falTing from the eye of the deceased. Rees fell down. They then got up, and were stopped from fighting. Witness left Evan Kees there Lewis Red wood deposed that he was a surgeon, living at Bedwellty. He WitS called on the 26th of July, to see Evan Rees, whom he found very violently delirious. lie had a severe lacerated wound 011 the left eye, to which, combined with inflammation of the brain consequent upon that wound, he attributed the delirium. He attributed death on the whole, certainly to the injury of the brain. Did not think if he had been called in earlier it would have made any difference. It was just possible that by extracting the pipe im- mediately, fit, might have saved the man's life.- The jury returned a verdict of guilty; and in con- sideration of the long ti me the prisoner had already been in imprisonment-nearty eight months, his Lord- ship sentenced him to two calendar months' imprison- ment, Eli Jenkins and Joseph Kingell were placed at the bar, the latter charged with stealing, in conjunction with rurtier, who was admitted as King's evidence), on the 5th of March last, 200 weight of coal, the property of Thomas Littlehales; and the former charged with receiving GOIbs. of coal, knowing the same to have been stolen. Mr Godson, who appeared for Jenkins, submitted to Ins Lordship that the guiifv knowledge was not made out agai„st ,lis client -thnt |ie could not be charged with receiving the same knowing it to be stolen, inasmuch as the property was p aced upon his premises without his knowledge. His Lordship, in summing up,coincided with the opinion oflir Godson M JU^.retur»ed a verdict of-Guilty, against Kingell. Eli Jenkins was acquitted. His Lordship then sentenced Kingell to seven years' trans- portation. Eleanor- Cunvin was clnr^ed with stealing various articles of bedding, the property of tho Guardians of the Poor of the Abergavennv Union. Several per- sons deposed to It, purchased articles of the prisoner. I he prisoner represented to each of those witnesses, that it was the property of a poor person in distress, which she had been commis- sioned to sell. Mr Yirdicy, who appeared for the prisoner, submitted that the prisoner was enti- tled to a verdict of acquittal, inasmuch as there was no identity of the articles.—The Learned Judge- summed up, and taking a similar view of the case, the jury returned a verdict of—Not Guilty. Emanuel Edwards. 50, out on bail pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing on the 1st of March, at Newport, 56lbs. weight of h!lVj va|ue 3?#> the propeity of Samuel Homfray ail"d' others.

Thomas Griffiths, IS, was charged with having, on the 27th of Sept., 1839, at the parish of Dingestow, ass,iulted,&c., Margaret Watkins, aged 70, wife ol James Watkins, of the parish of Tregone- Mr Graves conducted the prosecution..Mrs Watkins deposed, tnat on the day in question she went to take some wuoat to Dingestow Mill; when near the house of a Mrs Lewis the prisoner came up with her, and asked her how she was; she, in return, addressed a similar compliment to him they both proceeded on together when prisioner began to converse in an indecent man- ner, in consequence of which she turned into a different pathway; prisoner crossed and came up to her. and then the ailedged assault took place: prison, r threw the wheat off her head, and tore her dress almost in shreds. Prosecutrix hallooed and screamed; the alleged assault was committed; and prosecutrix was unable to proceed for some time: prisoner ran awav prosecutrix went on towards the mill, alld waS over- t I 11 taken bv Mrs Lewis, to whom she related the circum- vo, stance, and gave the name of the person who had assaulted her. Mrs Lewis sewed the gown upon her hack in pla.'es where it was tern. Prosecutrix told her husband of the assault, and next morning obtained a warrant, for tile apprdlCllsion of the prisoner. The Jury returned a verdict of-ot Guilty. I H'flliam Shellard (who was admitted to hail at the Special Com mission held in this county in January hist) was arraigned for a misdemeanour, connected with the late melancholy outbreak at Newport. Tne defendant when placed at the bir appeared much agi tated and distressed in inind. lie was very attentiv e throughout the trial, and communicated but little with his attorney. Sergeant Ludlow and Mr Whateley conducted the prosecution; Mr Lee and Mr Keating appeared for the defence —The witnesses on both side having been ordered to withdraw, Mr Whatoly rose and stated the indictment, (consisting of three counts) the first of which charged the defendant with conspiring with others to obstruct the laws and to prevent their due execution, to cause insurrections, and with attending an unlawful assembly; the second count charged the defendant with conspiracy generally the third was merely formal. Sergeant Ludlow addressed the jury, giving a brief outline of the case as afterwards detailed by the wit- nesses; but as the full particulars have already ap- peart-d at full length in this paper, we need not repeat Llieifi here. Mr. Lee addressed the Jury for the defendant. He remarked, that if they did not know it already, he would tell them that this was a prosecution by her Majesty's Government, and that his Learned Friend, Sergeant Ludlow, represented the Attorney General' In the course of his address, the Learned Gentleman animadverted, in unmeasured language, upon the present Government, and maintained that the present Attorney General, who advised the people not to pay any taxes unless a certain measure were carried, ouxht to have been prosecuted rather than the defendant who, with others, had only followed the example set them by such individuals as the Attorney General. But no! those who had set the example were °Te3t and wealthy men. They had been honoured "with office, and had been commended, while the poor man was thrown into prison. Through tatter'd clothes, small errors do appear Robes and furr d gowns hide all place sin with gold, And the strong lance of justice hurtless break* • Arm it in rags, and a pigmy's straw may pierce "it." He proceeded to say, that he should call evidence to invalidate the statements of the witnesses for the prosecution. He argued that there was not one scintilla of evidence to prove criminal conduct on the part of the defendant on the 4th of November. Several witnesses were called, whose evidence went to contradict tho statements of the witnesses for the prosecution, and to show that defendant was not criminally concerned in the movement on the third of November They were all sharply cross-examined by the learned counsel forthe prosecution, and in many cases their testimony was considered shaken. The case for the defendant having closed. Sergeant Ludlow rose to address the Jury. He said that if there was any doubt on the minds of the Jury as to the guilt of the defendant, they would, of course, give the defendant the benefit of that doubt but if they felt that the evidence was not conclusive and satisfactory, he should then call upon them for a verdict accordingly. He maintained that the charge of curtailing the liberty of open and public discussion, should be the last allegation brought against the present Government, for they had given unbounded liberty on that subject. After a further repulsion of the charges "made by Mr. Lee, the Learned Counsel went over the depositions. It was evident," he 8!1id, "that on the 4th of November physical force was intended to be used. It has been said, that the men were armed merely to dcfend themselves? Against whom, I would ask, were they to defend ti)einselves ? What necessity was there for arming, when there was pothing to oppose them ?" lie did not ask the Jury to act upon the evidence of Dainty or Rowseil, if they thought it had been at all discredited by the other wi nesses, I ho learned counsel, after submitting to tliejury that froln the evM ence there could not be the Sj' 1° Sliellard's criminal connectionjWith nTTim ^P'racy, and the unlawful assembly f,iiu c V< °i ,Vt'ltiber, left the case in their hands, countVand the Vfend mtU'd jU9UCe tbe nn/nrn ''I?161' Ju,'SP, in summing up, explained the of tho • i le IIK^'ctuieut, and recapitulated the entire He bpuV" colninenting thereon as heproceeded. observer '° to Pu'i OUt ^e'r m'n^ an.V tw tlin°" °-i H l)0'itieal nature, which had been made the d<.f^Ui°C1i.'01!

If for a short time success had followed your designs, there is no man but must see that such succsss could only be temporary,and lead to great bloodshed and confusion in the country. I feel it my duty to pass upon you a severe sentence, as may be thought by many persons, because yon have actually taken an active part in what was being carried on. I do not think the defence set up can be said to lessell the offence, but, on the contrary to aggravate it; for it is quite plain, that that the evidence given cannot be true, but is untrue, in their and your knowledge. In order to deter others from similar offences, and to maintain the peace, the sentenceonyou is, that you be imprisoned for eighteen calendar months, and at the end of that time, to find security to keep the peace for five years, yourself in ^500., and two sureties in £ 100. each, or bo impri- soned till they shall be produced."

It only remains that Cardiff rouse itself from its present state of lethargy and bankruptcy; and if it will eschew those of the old members wilo have been found corrupt, and try to pay its outstanding debts, it may yet hold up its head along with the other honest supporters of Welsh Li- terature. A petition, very numerously and respectably signed, at Cbepstow, has been sent to both Houses of Parlia- ment, praying for church extension, &c. Court of Common Council, London.

Lland™ "0 A very respectable Grand Jury, of which Mr I low ell Powell, cabinet maker, of Llanvaes, Brecon, was fore- man, having been sworn, and the proclamation against vice and immorality having been read, the Chairman proceeded to deliver his charge. He stated that he had hoped that the recent oc- currence of the assizes would have enabled him to congratulate them on what is generally termed a maiden sessions, but he was sorry to say that there were three cases in the calendar, of which two were of a very aggravated nature. From reading the deposi- tions, he did not consider it necessary to make any observations on either of the cases, except that of Evan Morgan. The principal witness was of a very tender age, and it would be for them to judge whe- ther she had a sufficient knowledge of the nature of the facts charged to enable them to return a bill on her evidence. The evidence in the other two cases was so clear, that as he bad before remarked, it was unneces- sary for him to advert to them. Since he had last had the honour of addressing them, a very important and interesting event had taken place. He alluded to the matrimonial alliance contracted by her Majesty with Prince Albert of Saxe Coburg; and this event he hoped and trusted would not only add materially to her Majesty's domestic comfort and happiness, but also gave every reason to hope that it would have a lOa. terial and beneficial effect on the wel farc of the nation. He had also thcplNSUrt1 of congratulating them upon the restoration of peace—and he hoped it would prove permanent peace—in the manufacturing districts of this and the ildjoining counties The very proper ex- ample which had been madcof tire ringleaders in those unhappy disturbances, would, ho trusted, have a sa u- tary effect, and would convince the misguided men that the civil and military powers were always ready with promptitude and energy to co-operate in repress- ing all lawless disorders. A great degree of lenity had been shown t" the minor offenders, and he hoped this lenity would have its proper efli ct; and while it tempered justice with mercy, it would convince them that the laws could not be violated with impunity. He should not detain them any further, but let them retire to their chamber, where he would direct the bills to be laid before them. On the motion of Mr G. A. Davies. of Crickhowell, an order was made for stopping up a road in the parish of St. Michael Cwmdu, and for substituting another made at the expense of J. Bailey, Esq., M.P. Joseph Connell. Martha Council, and Sarah (Vrigley, were charged with stealing a qua'itity of potatoes tiie property of John Hope in the town of Hay. Mr. Pugb, of I I iiy, addressed the jury for the prose- cution, and Mr. Higgins for the prisoner. Verdict- Not guilty. John Powles, labourer, 21, who was charged with stealingtwo silver watches, and three five pound notes the property of Mary Jenkins, widow, in the parish of St. Michael Cwmdu, pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to 12 calender months' imprisonment with hard labour. Evan Morgan, butcher, aged 55, charged with as- sault,with intent,&c., upon Elizabeth Charles, aged 12 years, in the parish of V ay nor, was remanded to the assizes, the bench being of opinion that the capital charge was made out. Mr Bishop and Mr Thomas Richards, of Merthvr h,Pr,nir,aPP, tlut lle he admitted to hail, but the court declined, on the ground of the Jorious nature of the charge. APPEALS.
