NOT ON SPEAKING TERMS WITH HER MISTRESS. -Ellen SuJJi van, 20, domestic, was charged at the Newport police-court on Monday, with stealing a gold scarf pin, value 20s, the property of Emanuel Jacob, 1, Lansdowne-plaee. The girl, on her own admission, found the pin in the dustpan, and stuck it in the front of her dress, intending to return it. She and her mistress were not, however, on speaking terms, and had not been for three weeks. Ultimately she gave the pin to John Ephraim, of Cwmbran, and now admitted that she took it, but did not steal it— a distinction, as one of the magistrates explained, without a (iiffeieii(,e.-I'P,)secutrix reco r,ime d ed I' prisoner to mercy, as she believed she had been led away.—The magistrates' clerk: c k Led away by whom — John Ephraim?— Prosecutrix: Yes.—The Mayor (to prosecutrix) She says you were not on speaking terms with her Wiiat does that mean ?-Prosecutrix I really do not know what she means.—The Mayor ad- ministered a caution to the prisoner, who is a well- dressed girl, with a good character, and fined her 40s, or one month's imprisonment in default. !^A "DIFFICULT" MEAT TRANSACTION.—Johu Perry, butcher, formerly of Cardiff, was charged before the same court with stealing apiece of beef, value 3s 6d, the property of Margaret Rourke.— Mr Ensor, Cardiff, defended.—The defendant keeps a stall in Newport general market, and on Saturday evening the prosecutrix purchased the piece of beef.

Prosecutrix said she had given him 3s, and called his man to witness it, but he said he saw nothing given. A wordy warfare ensued, and defendant ultimately took the meat away from her. Prose- cutrix's daughter-in-law corroborated the evidence of her mother.—Mr Ensor called three witnesses to prove that prosecutrix attempted to dodge his client by putting down the money and then picking it up again. Perry then remembered that she was the same woman who six weeks before had taken meat, and refused to serve her.—The Mayor said the case was one of very grave suspi- cion. but gave the defendant the benefit of the doubt.
