John Pryce, farmer, Cwabs, David's Well, Llanbadarn-fynydd, was charged with being drunk in charge of a horse and cart. The Rev Samuel Davies, vicar of Dolfor, said that on April 12th he was driving to Newtown, when he met defendant near Black Hall, returning from Newtown, with a cart and horse. He was helplessly drunk, and fell into the gutter. Had not the horse stopped just in time, the cart would have gone over him. A man named David Jones appeared on behalf of defendant, and admitted that he was the worse for drink, but as lie had a large family, he hoped the Bench would be as lenient as possible with him. Fined F-I, including costs. TRANSFER OF LICENSE. Mr S. P. Powell applied for the transfer of the license of the Castle Vaults from Mr Richard Wood to Mr James Harper. Mr Harper had kept a public house before, I and had excellent references.—No objection was raised by the police, and the transfer was granted. EJECTMENT ORDER. Mr Martin Woosnam applied for an ejectment order on behalf of Mr C. J. Newell, the owner, against William Latham, in respect of a dwelling house in Spinner's-court, Commercial-street. De- fendant was a weekly tenant, and the notice to quit had not been complied with.

He heard his name mentioned two or three times. Then he heard George Jones shout, That b- Weaver." Defendant wanted him to fight, but he answered that he had nothing to fight for. He then went into the house, and defendant followed him and started cursing and threatening him. He said that there was not a policeman in the town that could lock him up, and that he would have his revenge in the morning. He was kicking at the door for a considera- ble time, and cursing awful, and ultimately the police were sent for.
