THE HOUSEBREAKING AT BASSALLEG. At Newport county police-court on Saturday, Herbert Berrel, a twenty-year-old ne'er-do-well, was charged with breaking into the resilience of Wm. Perrot, Cwm Cottage, Cefn, and also into that of Edward Dowdeswell, Bassalleg. On Thurs- day, the 10th inst., Mrs Perrot saw prisoner at the cottage. He came from the direction of New- Eort, and asked for a glass of water. She gave im the water, and after he had gone out into the road she went upstairs, took a florin from a box in which she liladiabout A:6 in gold and silver, re- locked the box, and left the cottage, securing the front door and gate. When she got outside she saw prisoner standing 20 or 30 yards from the gate. Prisoner walked in front of her towards the canal, and she passed Richard Gardner, a lodger at her house, who was breaking stones at the roadside. She left prisoner standing by a stile near the canal. As she passed she asked pris- oner whether he wanted a job, and he said he did, and had not done any work for a fortnight. When she returned from Rogerstone at five o'clock she noticed that the gate was closed in a different way, and that the fiower in the lower window bad been disarranged and broken. She went upstairs at once, and saw that all the money had been taken, everything in the room being ran- sacked. She did not think prisoner could have heard her go upstairs, or handle the money, as he stood in the road outside the gate. From the footmarks outside the window, entrance to the house had clearly :been effected by opening it. She suspected prisoner because the lodger told her that the loose chap returned down the road after she had left.—Richard Cardner, an elderly man, lodging at Cwm Cottage but residing at 24, Henry-atreet, Marshes-road, Newport, said prisoner' returned down the road after Mrs Perrot left, but he could not see the cottage from where he was working. A man named George Cherrett came up the road and sat down near him, and whilst he was there talking prisoner repassed after an interval of half-an-hour Witness did not apeak to prisoner, but he said to Cherrett, "There's a curious man goile down there he'll neither speak nor look.' Cherrett was also called.—Supt. Bosanquet said he arrested prisoner the same evening in Dock-street, and found on him 2s 9!d, a door key, a white-handled table knife, and two pieces of calico. He said he did not commit the robbery, and gave an address in Fothergill-street, Newport, where he said he had had tea, but this statement was false.—The second case was also gone into. Mr Dowdeswell's house was left for a week, and it was entered and ransacked. Annie Dowdeswell, wife of the pro- secutor, who is stationmaster at the Great West- ern Railway Station at Bassalleg, identified the two pieces of calico found in prisoner's possession as poftion of her child's night-dress. Five Lion shillings, 25 fourpenny pieces, and other articles were missed from the house, every drawer of which had been broken.—Prisoner pleaded not guilty, and was committed for trial at the next quarter sessions.
