CHARGE OF ASSAULT AGAINST A CHEPSTOW DOCTOR. Instituting a Small-pox HospitgLLJ A Revenue Officer's Protest At the Chepstow petty sessions on Monday— before Major Lowe, Messrs G. Seys, Henry Clay, R. C. Jenkins, E. Richards, and P. P. Jenkins- Arthur Garland Lawrence, surgeon, practising at Chepstow, was charged with unlawfully assaulting William Bryan, revenue officer, at Crossway- green, on the night of December 16th. It appears from the statement of Mr Bailhache, of Newport, who prosecuted, that Dr.. Lawrence had a page-boy who was suffering from small- pox, and that ne vacated the old 'pike-house at Crossway-green, which is situated in the midst of several houses, intending to use it as an hospital. On the 4th December, about nine o'clock in the evening, he took the boy in an open vehicle to the cottage. Hearing a vehicle and expecting the doctor, Mr Bryan, who happened to be in a neighbour's house conversing on the subject, came out with his friend and went towards the 'pike-house, when Mr Lawrence, who was in the trap, with the horse's head towards the town, asked who was there. Mr Bryan protested against Dr. Lawrence bringing a c.se of small- pox into their midst. After further conversation, the doctor, using a threat, suddenly turned his horse round, and if Mr Bryan and his neighbour, Thomas Carter, had not moved quickly out of the way, they would have been knocked down. Dr. Lawrence then drove back to Chepstow. Mr Bailhache then called his witnesses, who corroborated his opening statement.—William Bryan, T homas Cator, and his wife, Mary Cator, having given evidence, Mr Ensor, of Cardiff, who appeared for Dr. Lawrence, briefly addressed the bench, contend- ing that there had been and could be no assault. he bench retired, and after an interval of about ten minutes, retcrned and announced that there had been an assault committed, but it was of so very slight a nature that they would dis- miss the charge.
