James Davies, who stated himself to be a native of Carmarthenshire, was placed at the bar on sus- picion of having in the afternoon of Tuesday the 27th instant, broken into the dwelling-house of Thomas Morgan at Tynllwyn, and stolen therefrom a fustian jacket the property of John Morgan. Thomas Morgan stated that on Tuesday last, about three o'clock in the afternoon, his daughter locked the door of his dwelling-house and went away from' the premises. On returning with her mother at four o'clock they discovered that the door was not fasten- ed, and on going into the house they immediately missed the jacket. On going to bed between eight and nine o'olock in the evening, they found that the staple of the lock had been forced off the door, and on the following day, in consequence of information he received, he proceeded to Aberystwith and applied for the assistance of the Police. Jones the Officer immediately went in search of the prisoner and cap- tured him as he was walking out of the Town at the bottom of the North Parade, Prisoner had then the jacket on his back, which Jones produced. John Morgan, son of Thomas Morgan identified the jacket as his property, and the Magistrates then committed the prisoner to Cardigan for trial at the next General Quarter Sessions for Larceny, and bound the Witnesses jn recognizances to appear against him.
