ALLEGED QUARREL AT TARVIN WORKHOUSE. SERIOUS RESULT. At the County Magistrates' Occasional Court, yesterday morning, before Mr. G. A. Dickson, an inmate of the Tarvin Union Workhouse, named Thos. Williams, was charged with unlawfully wounding John Ledsham another inmate, on Monday.—Ledsham, in giving evidence, stated he was a plasterer, and at ten o'clock was working at the workhouse on a scaffold. His legs were dangling below the platform on which he was sitting, and prisoner got hold of them, and nearly upset him. Witness remonstrated, and told the master of the house. Prisoner had in his hand the hammer produced (it was a hammer commonly used for breaking stones) and threatened to throw it at witness, who tried to take it from him. They closed, and Williams struck him a violent blow on the head with the weapon he beld.-Hugh Atkinson, the workhouse master, heard the scuffle from the adjoining room, and on going out he saw prisoner running away, followed by Ledsham and another man. Ledsham was bleeding profusely from a wound which exactly fitted the hammer. The blood was flowing down his face to Lis coat.- Prisoner was remanded until Saturday, when medical evidence will be given.
