BURGLARY AT TYNLLWYN, IN THE PARISH OF LLANRHYSTID. 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. TARDY SIGNS OF WAR The Dover correspondent of the Courier says, An order has arrived from Government to place all the fortifications at Dover in a state of immediate defence, in consequence of which His Grace the Duke of Wellington, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, accompanied by Mr. Jenkinson, the Deputy-Governor, Colonel Munro, Commandant of the Garrison, Colonel Thomson, commanding the Royal Engineers, Lord Marybo- rough, Lord Fitzroy Somerset, &c. made an inspection of the Castle, batteries, &c. and selected the most appropriate places for the placing of cannon. The citadel and other parts of the heights will also be fortified as soon as possible. The barracks have also been directed to be prepared for the reception of infantry and artillery to the amount of 1,400 men. The 34th Regiment (the depot of which is already here) and the 66th Regiment have received directions to proceed on their route for this place. THF ENGLISH RUN-A-WAYS—The following is an extract from a letter received by a gentleman in the neighbourhood of Devizes from his son :—. BOULOGNE-SUR-MER, Oct. 17 The inhabitants here say little on the subject of the war, for fear of driving away the English, who are the chief support of the place the packet boats that leave this port have been completely filled for the last fortnight. It is amusing to see the fortifications raising round Bou- logne there are about 100 men and 20 women em- ployed—the latter do more work than the men, who are the laziest fellows I ever saw and a few cannon shot would soon batter the whole down. They are
of respect they had paid to himself when a compara- tive stranger amongst them (hear). The excellent Chairman, whose friendship he was proud to possess, had alluded to the share of the management his son had in that branch of the industry of the county with which they were so closely con- nected. It was gratifying to him to hear him lauded no less in his public capacity than his personal character. If in discharging the highly responsible duties of his station he had maintained an even balance of justice between the employers and the employed, if in his intercourse with men he had been deferential to his superiors, cordial to his equals, and courteous to his inferiors, it was a matter of rejoic- ing and satisfaction to him (hear); and believing that these were his characteristics, and seeing the way in which he was esteemed by them, or they would not thus these have associated to his honor, he did with confi- dence trust that he was not unworthy of the compliment they had paid him (hear). This he could say for his son, that he did feel this celebration, of what he prayed might be a happy event, to him and also to the partner of his choice, as deeply and intensely as he did; and he trusted that he would go on further meriting their approbation and that when he brought his bride amongst them, one of the most amiable of her sex as he believed her to be, the most friendly and neighbourly feeling would still be cultivated (hear) It was gratifying to him to see no difference of sect or party. Here were men met of various religious and political creeds. Difference of opinion there always must be, both in politics and religion ( hear); but when opinions were entertained in sin- cerity and not unnecessarily or offensively obtruded, they ought not to be any interruption to private friendship (hear). He did not see here any symptom of such interruption. They gave each credit for honest intentions, and it was peculiarly gratifying to see men of all parties cordially joining in this mani- festation of personal feeling in favour of his son and his bride (hear). He must apologise for the very inadequate manner in which he had acknowledged the toast. If he had possessed eloquence he would have availed himself of its aid; but he did not. They must therefore [be contented with the plainly ex- pressed, but heartfelt thanks of a father." (Cheers). The following toasts were then drank-The Mem- bers for the County and Boroughs—The Bishop and Clergy-The Chairman, (proposed by Mr. Taylor, senior)-Mr. Taylor, senior,—Mr. Welsby, the Re- vising Barrister-Alrs. Taylor, of Coed-du-Lord Mostyn, (who wrote a letter of apology for not at- tending the dinner)—" Success to the Mines"—The Vice Presidents, &c. &c. Abridged from the Car- narvon Herald. TOWN HALL, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1840.-A court of Petty Sessions was this day holden at the Town Hall, John Hughes, Esq. Mayor, presiding, assisted by Mr. Alderman Roberts, and J. S. Bonsall, Esq. Anne Pugh, the wife of John Pugh, applied to the court to make an order for maintenance on her hus- band.-Ordered to stand over for one week. Mrs. Margaret Jones, wife of Mr. Jones, Maltster, preferred a charge against Sarah Williams, for com- mitting a breach of peace, threatening to strike her, and using very violent and abusive language. The court held Sarah Williams to bail for twelve months. Gwen Williams, daughter of Sarah Williams, was also charged by Mrs. Jones, with having left her ser- vice before the expiration of the term for which she was hired. The court reprimanded the girl for her conduct, and Mrs. Jones not wishing to take her back into her service, settled the matter by paying the balance of wages due to her; the Defendant paying the costs. Messrs. Hughes, Hughes, and Roberts, on behalf of Mr. Davies, of Liverpool, who is the owner of a Messuage and Garden, in Mill Lane, appeared in support of a warrant obtained against Jenkin Roberts for trespass on a piece of land, the ownership of which appeared to be in dispute between Mr. Davies, and a Mrs. Catherine Davies, who is the owner of pro- perty adjoining the land in dispute. Mr. Thomas, So- licitor for Mrs. Catherine Davies, contended that as the title to the piece of land in question was in dis- pute, and that the trespass complained of was not a malicious one, the matter could not be disposed of in the summary way in which it was sought to be. The court adjourned the further consideration of the question until the following Tuesday, to enable the parties to prepare themselves with evidence in sup- port of their respective claims. TOWN HALL, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28,1840 An Action was tried this day in the County Court, before Horatio Hughes, Esquire, Undersheriff of the County of Cardigan, and a common Jury. The Action was brought by W. E. Richardes, Esq. against John James, to recover the sum of fifteen shillings, being the price of ten measures of potatoes sold in February, 1838, by Mr. Stephens, since de- ceased, as the Agent of the Plaintiff. To prove the delivery of the potatoes Thomas Griffiths was called, who stated that two years ago last February, he de- livered to the Defendant ten sacks of potatoes, and to David Lloyd, the Defendant's brother-in-law, the like quantity of potatoes which had been sold to them by the late Mr. Stephens, as Mr. Richardes's Agent. This was the Plaintiff's case. For the de- fence Mr. Thomas called Magdalen Lloyd, the sister- in-law of Defendant, who deposed that she remem- bered the potatoes being delivered to the Defendant. That she remembered seeing Mr. Stephens in Aber- ystwith in the following August in his carriage, near Mrs. Scandrett's house in Pier Street. That Margaret James, (wife of the defendant), who on that day was, as well as witness, standing in the market, at Aber- ystwith, selling fruit, vegetables, &c. went to Mr. Stephens, and paid him fifteen shillings for the pota- toes purchased in the previous February and that Mrs. Scandrett was also standing at her door when the money was paid. On her cross-examination by Mr. Parry, (of the firm of Parry and Atwood), she said she believed another action would be tried on that day againgst her husband for a similar amount to the present, and that the wife of the present Defendant, John James, would be the witness to swear for the defence in that action, and that Mrs. Scandrett was dead. On being asked whether it was the beginning, middle, or end of the month of August when she saw Margaret James pay the money to Mr. Stephens, she answered about the end of August." Thomas Griffiths was then re-called and stated that Mr. Stephens died on the 3rd of August, 1838, having been previously confined to his bed by illness about three weeks. Magdalen Lloyd was also re-called and asked if she could swear it was not in June or July that the money was paid to Mr. Stephens, to which she replied it was in the latter end of the summer as well as she could remember. The Under sheriff read over the evidence to the Jury who consulted for a short time and then returned a Verdict for the Plaintiff. Another Jury was sworn to try the Action brought by the same Plaintiff against David Lloyd, to recover a similar sum of fifteen shillings, also for potatoes sold. The delivery being admitted, Margaret James the wife of the Defendant in the last Action, was called to prove that in August last she saw Magdalen Lloyd pay Mr. Stephens 2s. 6d., the balance due to Mr. Richards for the potatoes, she having told Wit- ness that the sum of 12s. 6d. had been previously paid. The Jury after questioning the Witness as to her remembrance of the time when the money was paid, returned a Verdict for the Defendant.
