ALL BUT WHITE jGLOVIR AT f CAERLEON. There was a narrow escape of white gloves at the Caerleon police-court on Thursday week. Four magistrates were present, amongst them being the veteran Mr. John Lawrence, who has taken up his residence in the neighbourhood. Half a dozen gentlemen in blue were also present awaiting the unexpected; and a haadfnl of spec- tators gazed listlessly at the ceiling. Israel Wil- liams, a young man from Cwmbran, leant upon the of the defendants' stand, turned his hat around, and in answer to the queries of the Court laid he was not drunk, but had -taken a drop too much. This admission was after Officers Lewis and Keylock had given evidence that he was found in the Oakneld Inn in an intoxicated •tate.—The Clerk pointed out the inconsistency of the two statements, but Israel persisted that he was not drunk.—The Bench, not being able to appreciate the difference in defendant's mind. de- cided that the drop too much must cost 10s. The decision seemed to take Israel quite by surprise, for he still hangover the rail, and it was not until the clerk had explained that he wanted 10s that Israel swung himself off the defendants' stand to find the wherewith.—Mr JoshuaEvans, an ex- Itatiünmaster at Lower Pontnewydd, now took the stand, and explained to the court that it was his first experience of the position. The occasion of his visit were some threats which Mr Evans was .alleged to have used toward Martha Hal- combe, a neighbour. Mrs Halcombe stated that Mr Evans cast reflections upon hercharacter,and expressed the intention of blowing out her brains with a pistol, wnich she said he hadwith him at the time.—Mrs Brooks, another neighbour how- ever, turned the tables by stating that Mrs Hal- oonibe attacked Mr. Evans with a poker .De- fendant's wife and daughter described a senes -of acts of annoyance to which Mrs Halcombe had .subjected them. Both ladies had a slight alter- cation in court, which evidently led to the Bench declaring that both parties were to blame, and that justice would be met by a division of costs between them. This ended the business, and the magistrates proceeded to felicitate aach other upon the apparent improvement in the mor- ality of the district, as evidenced by the brevity of the court.
