BRECON POLICE INTELLIGENCE. COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS, SATURDAY, before the Her. C. GRIFFITH and LEWIS HUGHES, Esq. RENEWAL OF LICENSES.—There were a number of licenses renewed, the only one to which any exception was taken being that of the Tair Dairwen" Inn, kept by David Theophilus, who was convicted for keeping bis house open for the sale of beer on Good Friday last. The offence, however, was a very slight one, and after having cautioned the applicant, the Bench granted a renewal of the license. APPLICATION FOR A SPIRIT LICENSE. Samuel Lewis, of the Black Horse, Llanfihangel Nantbran, applied for a spirit license for the above house. Superinten- dent Price, in reply to the Bench, said the next spirit licensed house was only about 150 yards distant from the Black Horse, which was kept by two very old maiden ladies, who were sisters. The place did not require another spirit licence, as the consumption of liquors was very limited, the place being not at all a populous OHO. He thought also that if the applicant gave up the keeping a public-house altogether he would be doing a great kindness both to himself and the two sisters, and he had only just passed through the Bankruptcy Court. Their Worships thought there could be no necessity for another spirit license in the neighbourhood in question, aad therefore declined granting one. ALLOWING ANIMALS TO STRAY ON THE HIGHWAY.— Thomas Lewis, of Pontyrystwith, farmer, was sum- moned for the above offence. Mr. Superintendent Price stated that on the 16th he was on duty in a place called Pontyrystwith, when his attention was called to a cow which was straying on the highway. He made inquiries of some persons in the neighbourhood, and found that the cow belonged to the defendant. He then went to the defendant, and asked him if it was his cow, and he said it was. He then told him that the cow was continually upon the road, and he was bound to summon him. The defendant contended that there were other cattle on the road as well as his, but the witness said he saw no cattle on the road but the defendant's. He was fined Is. and the costs. B PETTY SESSIONS, MONDAY, before J. DAVIES, Esq. (Mayor), J. PROTHERO, Esq. (Ex- Mayor), and JAMES WILLIAMS, Esq. POLLUTING A WFLL.- Caroline, Johnson, a married woman, was summoned for polluting a public well. The defendant admitted the offence, and expressed her regret for having done so. She said she merely tried to prevent her husband from striking her sister, and he struck her down, the fall causing the blood to flow, and she ran to the well to wash the blood away. Their worships were inclined to deal leniently with defen- dant, and dismissed the case on payment of the costs. IRIPIRWAL OF LICENSES.—Among the large number of licenses which were renewed, the following pre- sented cause for objection, viz.:—"The Cricketers' Arms," by Wiiiiam Price; "Flag and Castle," by John Lewis:" Square and Compass," by Ann Pritchard; « Ship Inn," by « Bull Inn," by John Owen; "Fo* and Hounds bv Thomas Daviesj and the Crown Inn, by^^s Powles. None of the above named persons appeared personally, and the Bench said it was very desirable that the applicants should attend, as they thought it was very necessary that some remarks should be made respecting the objections raised against the granting a renewal of the different licenses therefore they adjourned the appli- cations for a week, in order that all the applicants might be in attendance to hear such observations as their Worships might then think proper to make, and those who did not attend would not be granted a re- newal of their licenses. i
