ATTEMPTING TO RESCUE FOWL STEALERS. A Street Scene at Newport. At Newport borough police-court to-day—be fore the Mayor and other magistrates—William Williams, labourer at the new gasworks, Crindau, was charged with assaulting P.C. Browning in the execution of his duty. On Saturday evening P'C. Folkeswell, of the county constabulary, was in charge of two prisoners handcuffed together, who, earlier that day, were convicted of fowl stealing, when prisoner, who had been waiting opposite to the county police, stepped across and gave the two men a parcel, which, he said, con- tained buns. Afterwards, in High-street, one of the principal thoroughfares, and at that time crowded with people, prisoner took hold of the officer, attempted to prevent him from following the prisoners, and used threatening language.— The Magistrates' Clerk (to the officer) Then the prisoners might have escaped ?—Folkeswell: Yes, easily. They were 10 or 15 yards in front of me at one time, and there was a lot of people between us.-P.C. Browning, of the borough force, went to Folkeswell's assistance, and was twice struck in the chest by prisoner.—Prisoner now said that the county officer went to his house about the missing property, and frightened his wife, who bad been ill ever since.-Folkeswell denied that prisoner said anything about this visit. The police, however, had visited the house, as alleged.—The Mayor said the magistrates could not allowpolice- men to be interfered with and struck, and as a warning sentenced prisoner to a month's hard labour.
