ASSAULT.—Benjamin Arthur and Josiah Arthur, both of Bwlch, Llanyuis, were charged by David Powell, a little boy, son of John Powell, of Escercynwydd, in the same parish, with assaulting him, on the 26th ult. The case was brought on on the 5th instant, when it -was adjourned until to-day for the attendance of several witnesses. The case seemed to have arisen from a dispute as to whether a oath the complainant was walking on in defendant's ground where the assault was committed was a public way or not. On this occasion, Mr. L'ewellin, solicitor, of this town appeared on behalf of defendants, and after having severely cross-examined complainant's witnesses as to the public path, produced several witnesses who rebutted much of the evidence on the other side, and then made a most eloquent appeal to the Bench for the defendants. The Bench, after a short consultation, fined defendants 6d. each and costs. ANOTHER ASSAULT CASr.David Davies, of Llan- gammarch, had been summoned by Isaac Price, of the same place, for an assault, but the case was, by the consent of their Worships', settled out of court. ♦
