AN OLD OFFENDER. Moses Hughes alias Moses y Bryn, was brought up in the custody of P. C. Samuel Davies, upon the charge of having on Monday last committed wilful damage at the house of Phoebe Jones, Bryn Zion, by breaking in the door, which he shattered to pieces. In the summer of last year the prisoner was charged with an assault, and was mulcted in a fine, but upon promising to pay the money he was released from custody. Failing to fulfil his promise, he was again apprehended, and a second time released upon the faith that the money should be paid, but he then ab- sconded, and a commitment was issued against him. When apprehended the prisoner offered violent resis- tance and severely assaulted police officer Samuel Davies. He was committed to prison for one month for the assault, and at the expiration of that term, for a second month for the damage, in each instance with hard labour. A warrant had also been taken out against him for the assault upon the officer, which will be executed upon the prisoner on his release from his present confinement. » ■ r Holywell Railway.—This line is progress- ing rapidly and the permanent way is now laid up to the/' Yellow Factory," and the rounding of the Helt in the direction of the ravine helow Castle Hill is being pushed on with all vigour.
