Dornford, Evan Lewis, and Henrv Lewis — William Naylor, labourer, was charged with aggravated assaults on Joannah Santry and Mary Ann Cokeley, on Saturday last.—From the evidence of the tw,v women and a companion named Catherine Brodrick, it appears that between ten and eleven o'clock on Saturday night they were coming from Cowbridge laden somewhat heavily with watercress, and near Sweldon Farm they lp-ard the prisoner and another man coming ai'ong shging a ribal song. The women stopped beside tfea hedge to rest, whom prisoner observing 8 he <-me up, crossed over, and in lang 8 made an improper offer tu ~-ntry.

Twi^antry r03eup>bufc owin« to the basket of wa rcr5sses being strung round her neck she could ofc move freely, and was forced back into e hedge again. Prisoner afterwards exposed and pulled her about so much that she was neaiy faint. Sub- sequently Cokeley seized the man co'mpelled him to let go the other woman. In .eturn she received a severe blow of the fist in jj face. Fearing that the man would prevail over hem, they set up united screaming, and the priso,er' probably fearing to be discovered, went awa, The other man took no part in the assaults, ana proceeded on his way. A police officer afterwards arrested the prisoners in a lodging-house, at Ca,erau. To the constable he pleaded ignorance of the whole affair, and at the police-court he repeated his assertion denying that he knew even that he was with another man on the occasion. He added that he bad been drinking all day. The women, however, all swore to the identity of the prisoner with the man who assaulted the two of them. The bench retired for a few minutes to ide. liberate, and on returning, the chairman said, «We are unanimous that you committed these assaults. It is a most abominable thing that women cannot walk along the public highway without being assaulted by ruffians like you proved to be. For the aggravated assault ou Santry you will have to go to gaol for three months, and for the assault on Cokeley another month-four months' hard labour."—The Prisoner (laughing): All right; good day.
